No injuries in big fire


City ready to force water hook-ups


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


PHOTO COURTESY OF CITY OF VENICE
The Venice Fire Department responded to a fire at 1301 Pine Needle
Road on Saturday at 12:48 p.m. When firefighters arrived, the roof of
the garage was in flames. A neighbor had alerted the occupants
and they and their dog were able to get out of the house uninjured.
Damage to the home, a boat stored in the garage and two cars
parked just outside of the garage is estimated at $200,000. The Red
Cross helped the homeowners with lodging for the first three nights
after the fire.



Council votes for


higher tax millage


Owners of 18 properties
who have ignored the manda-
tory utility hook-ups required
under a 2002 forced annexa-
tion are getting one last chance
before they end up in litiga-
tion.
On Tuesday, Venice City
Council gave the city attorney
authority to pursue lawsuits
against the property owners,
pending one last notice.
More than 200 property
owners forced to annex to
eliminate enclaves were origi-
nally given a year to hook up.
The next notice gave an addi-
tional two months. Then five
years passed. Recently the city
sent out two more notices.
"We have had good suc-
cess," said Utilities and Public
Works Director Len Bramble,
adding that staff have reached
the end of their options.
He's still researching and
cross-checking various prop-
erty owner lists to ascertain


which properties have city- or
county-issued septic tank per-
mits and are thus exempt from
sewer hookup.
"What we have here is
approaching the point where
we have to take action to en-
force this for the public good,"
Mayor Ed Martin said.
"We have pretty much ex-
hausted all the enforcement
options," said City Attorney
Bob Anderson. "I would need
authorization to proceed with
litigation."
Council granted it, unani-
mously, but not until Council
Member John Simmonds aired
his concerns with pursuing yet
more litigation.
Anderson said the city had
no choice.
"Most litigationss) have
been in the defense of the city,"
he said. "We have no choice
but to defend ourselves when
we are sued. You have a duty to
ensure laws are properly en-
forced. This is being farmed
out. It's not going to the coffers
of Hall & Anderson."


Anderson said one last final
demand letter will be issued
before anyone is hauled into
court.
"That should probably ac-
celerate the discussion," Mart-
in said.
Task force
It may have been frustrat-
ing, but it probably wasn't
much of a surprise to Paula
Dumas, chair of the city Eco-
nomic Development Task
Force, that city council wanted
no part of her board's recom-
mendation to begin consider-
ing development of excess air-
port property.
Dumas said a "request for
qualifications" probably
wouldn't be issued for at least
six months, but that didn't
even draw a pause before
council let it be known it was a
dead issue.

ber Sue Lang, who said an RFQ
was premature since the air-

Venice City Council adopt-
ed the higher rollback millage
rate of 3.2253 at Tuesday's pub-
lic hearing on the budget,
which ended at 7:45 p.m.
Mayor Ed Martin and Kit
McKeon said they were in
favor of some kind of increase,
instead of relying solely on tap-
ping the city's reserve fund to
plug a $2.4 million deficit.
Martin said he supported a
compromise of 2.9874 mills over
the current 2.7790 millage rate. A
mill is $1 per every $1,000 of a
property's taxable value.
A millage rate of 3.9 next year
would be required to generate
the same amount of city rev-
enue as this year due to falling
property values. The operating
budget is set at $59 million for all
funds, including $23 million for
the general fund.
Council Member Sue Lang
said she favored tapping the
reserve fund for the full $2.4
million and leaving the current
millage rate alone this year. If
necessary, raise it next year,
she said.
In the end, council mem-
bers Ernie Zavodnyik, Kit
McKeon, John Simmonds and
Martin voted for the increased
millage rate; Lang and John
Moore voted against it. Vicki


Noren Taylor was absent.
Martin noted that council
could lower the millage rate at
the final budget public hear-
ing, scheduled for Sept. 22.
Protecting reserves
City administration request-
ed the rollback rate. It increas-
es millage and property taxes
by a minimum of $106 for a
home with taxable value of
$250,000, and possibly more
for those with a Save Our
Homes tax cap.
City Manager Isaac Turner
said he favored protecting the
current city reserve account to
handle what he estimates will
be two or three more austere
budget years.
Instead of tapping the re-
serve for $2.4 million, the city
would need only $1 million
under the 3.2253 mill scenario.
Turner said he could handle
tapping the reserves for one year
but not for the next few years.
The fund had $11.4 million
at the beginning of this year.
City leaders want to maintain
at least $7.4 million in case of a
catastrophe the amount repre-
sents about three months of
operating expenses.

City asks dismissal of Part 16 complaint against Jet Center


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

The same law firm that told
the city of Venice it probably
couldn't deny permits to con-
struct hangars at the Venice Jet
Center is now saying it can.
Thomas Devine, of Wash-
ington, D.C.,'s Kaplan Kirsch &
Rockwell, hired to represent
the city in a Part 16 complaint
filed by the jet center and
receiver Burton Wiand with
the Federal Aviation Adminis-
tration, argues in a filing with
the agency that the city did not
improperly deny a permit to
build four airplane hangars.
A Part 16 complaint is an


official fact-finding investiga-
tion that could lead to litiga-
tion or other legal measures
against the city if it is found to
have violated federal grant
assurances that regulate the
airport or violate contract pro-
visions withVJC.
Devine also said the jet cen-
ter and Wiand failed to prove
the city is in violation of any
federal obligations, and it
doesn't need to issue the per-
mits.
Wiand took control of the
jet center after owner Art Na-
del was charged with invest-
ment fraud.
The jet center and the re-
ceiver also lack standing to


raise certain issues in the com-
plaint, argued Devine, for two
reasons: one, because the
funds used for its purchase
were ill-gotten by owner Na-
del, and two, because the jet
center doesn't intend to build
hangars and the Wiand can't
prove a future unknown owner
will either
Devine, on behalf of the city,
asked the FAA to dismiss the
complaint.
Flip-flop?
In June, Devine's firm issued
this warning: "(T)he city of
Venice would run a significant

Attorneys for the city of Venice are seeking the dismissal of an admin-
istrative complaint challenging its refusal to issue a permit for new
hangars at the Venice Jet Center.

BY CHRISTINE HAWES
SUN CORRESPONDENT


With a looming $36 million
budget shortfall this year despite
trimming the administrative fat
out of county operations, and after
two years of tapping an emergency
fund to balance the county's bud-
get, the notion of consolidating
services among Sarasota County's
numerous small communities is
becoming ever more attractive to
county commissioners.
The idea received a boost from
a 10-member citizens budget task
force that offered a 50-page report
on its recommendations for cut-
ting costs and increasing revenues.
Consolidating services such as fire
departments, public safety and
road paving was included among
suggestions that included cracking
down on fraudulent homestead
exemptions, more vigorously ex-
ploring the sale and use of surplus
properties and asking county
employees to pick up a greater


percentage of health-care costs.
Robert L. Anderson, former
county commissioner and chair of
the task force, cited the Nokomis
Volunteer Fire Department as an
example of duplicated services
and said consolidation would like-
ly save the county money and em-
power Nokomis to improve its fire
services.
Task force member Mary Anne
Servian, a former mayor of Sara-
sota, encouraged the commission-
ers to urge the county's seven cities
to form their own budget task
forces. Those citizen panels could
then work together to identify
areas of consolidation "instead of
everybody trying to do their own
little thing," Servian said.
Good start
Commissioners praised the task
force's contribution to budget
planning, but several also pressed
for more details and an earlier start
to the task force's deliberations in
coming years.


"You have many good sugges-
tions here, and all of your work is
very much appreciated," said Com-
missioner Nora Patterson. But
"none of these things are going to
generate $35 million to $36 million,
which is the deficit we are facing."
Commissioner Shannon Staub
included the Nokomis consolida-
tion suggestion in a list of what she
called "low-hanging fruit." She
said acting on the force's recom-
mendations this year would be dif-
ficult because of timing.
"You've given us a great founda-
tion to work with over the next
year in preparing for the next bud-
get," she said.
County Administrator Jim Ley
and his staff warned commission-
ers that while citizens would not
experience any reductions in ser-
vices this year because of the deci-
sion to tap once more into the
emergency fund, commissioners
themselves would likely see slower
responses to information and e-
mail requests.

port master plan isn't com-
plete, immediately linked
the proposal to building a
hotel near the airport.
Dumas called that
speculation premature
since community input
had yet to be gathered
from the RFQ. Council
members reminded Du-
mas of the previous re-
quest for proposals at the
airport many featured
hotels that were all
turned down by council.
"I am not asking for
approval of a hotel,"
Dumas said. "I think we
are going off on a rabbit-
hole trail. We are asking
for an RFQ. An RFQ
reflects a green city and
enhancing the charm of
the city and what we
might entertain, so we
don't get projects like you
are talking about."
"It could evolve
around eco-tourism or
solar power. I don't know.
All I am saying is we are
looking at that underde-
veloped airport" to boost
the economy. "If not, we
are wasting our time."
"Our first priority will
be to establish land-use
regulations, but we will try
to get some planning for
that area," Martin said.
"Other than feeling idly
dismissed," Dumas said,
"I appreciate that this
might not be a priority,
and appreciate your con-
cern with this being a tim-
ing issue, but our econo-
my isn't going to fix itself.
"We have an econom-
ic engine" that unless
addressed is "going to be
sitting in demise," and a
city where streets are
lined with business "win-
dows covered with paper.

my daughter."

have slowly whittled
that down to the point
where attorneys' fees in
the Sunshine lawsuit,
which will be deter-
mined later this month,
could draw the reserve
fund below the fund
goal.
Twelfth Circuit Court


Judge Robert Bennett
will determine the
amount of attorney fees
at a hearing scheduled
Sept. 14-15.
The final amount
the city will be obligat-
ed to pay litigant An-
thony Lorenzo and his
team of attorneys
could be as much as
$2.5 million.


Still unknown
Taxpayers won't learn
prior to budget adoption
what kind of utility rate
increase is in store for the
upcoming year. Origin-
ally, city leaders said a
rate study would be com-
pleted before budget
deliberations but it's
clear now that won't hap-
pen. They anticipate an


increase.
Also, council was un-
able to bring finality to

ployees and retirees do.

City Attorney Bob An-
derson said it could be a
conflict of interest for
some members to vote
on the matter. He asked
for, and was granted, ad-
ditional time to research
the issue.

risk of being found in vio-
lation of its grant assur-
ances if it denied the jet
center's request to con-
struct additional hangar
space on its leasehold."
City Attorney Bob An-
derson, co-author of the
city response, said the
apparent flip-flop may
be a reflection of as-
sumptions the firm was
working under four
months ago.
"Kaplan ... assumed
the receiver had a viable
tenant," he said.
With jet center owner
Art Nadel in jail on
charges of fraud, and no
prospective owner com-
ing forth, "things have
changed," Anderson
said.
"We don't even know
who's asking for permis-
sion. Wiand has told us
he has no intention of
constructing hangars.
The jet center has said
they have no intention of
constructing hangars. All
the city is saying is, (to
whom) do you want us to
grant permission to con-
struct the hangars?
"It is somebody who
has not been identified
who is supposedly going
to purchase the jet cen-
ter. Fine. When they
come on board and
make the request and
prove financial ability,
then we will consider it."


Tactics
Attorney Dan Boone,
who represents the jet cen-
ter, called the city response
more delay tactics.
"The whole thing (city
response) is just an ab-
solute north-to-south re-
versal of position," he said.
"This is nothing but de-
lay. Paragraph 107 (of the
Kaplan opinion) states
'our response will be
developed.' That means
spending all kinds of
money on discovery and
other (motions). I see this
whole thing as delay."
"Let's just put another
$400 (per hour) on top of
$400," he said, referring
to attorney's fees piling
up.
"The majority of
council is willing to
spend this kind of money
on delay. It appears it
doesn't matter what the
cost is. Wiand isn't going
to fold up his tent and
fade off into the desert."


Diminished value?
Devine also deniesWi-
and's charge that coun-
cil's denial of permits,
while discussing pur-
chasing the property, was
an attempt to diminish
its resale value.
"While the city cer-
tainly does not object to
the receiver seeking a
measure of justice for the
victims of Mr. Nadel's
fraud, that does not
require the city to ignore
its own minimum stan-
dards" contained in the
jet center contract.
"Quite simply ... there
is no federal aviation
interest in pumping up
the value of the VJC
leasehold so that the
receiver may sell VJC for
the maximum amount,
and immediately take
those funds off the air-
port," Devine wrote.
Council Member Sue
Lang, in particular, has
been pushing council to

purchase VJC, but Devine
said council itself has
made no such official
determination and thus
can't be held responsible
for any potential "dimin-
ished value."
"No such action (to ac-
quire the lease or establish
hangars in competition
with VJC) has been ap-
proved or authorized by the


city council," Devine wrote.
And there has been no
violation of grant assur-
ances, Devine wrote, be-
cause the hangar dispute
did not not involve feder-
al grants.
There is no word on
when the FAA will issue
its findings.

BARBARA SAPUTO
REAL ESTATE COLUMNIST


As the 2009 president and
official spokesperson of the
Venice Area Board of Realtors, I
am writing in response to a re-
cent article in which a Realtor
offered statistics pertaining to
personal business. I do not
want that information to be
incorrectly perceived as repre-
senting what is happening to
all Realtors.
The article stated that 90
percent of recent sales are
short sales, and general com-
ments were made about expe-
riences with lenders in short-
sale situations. These statistics
and comments may be inher-
ent to that Realtor's business
and customers, but do not
reflect the overall real estate
market in Sarasota, Venice or
Englewood. Nor do the com-
ments represent Realtor feel-
ings regarding lenders.
To convey correct informa-
tion, I consulted the director of
administration at MyFlorida
Regional MLS, the multiple
listing service that is the gate-
keeper of all Realtor activity in
this area. According to My-
Florida, from Jan. 1 through


Aug. 4, in Venice there were
1,061 total sales handled by a
Realtor, with 97 of these sales
indicated as "short sale or
third-party sale" about 10
percent.
In Englewood there were
930 total sales; 55 were short
sales or third-party sales -
about 6 percent. In Sarasota
there were 3,380 sales; 570
were short sales or third-party
sales about 16 percent.
The percentages of sales in
Sarasota, Venice, and Engle-
wood that are a short sale are a
far cry from the 90 percent that
was stated.
It was also stated "banks are
increasingly reluctant to work
with real estate agents on short
sales." I don't know which
banks are being referred to or
how many banks she has dealt
with; I can only speak to my
experience. As the manager of
a 35-plus agent office in Eng-
lewood, I deal daily with the
issues of each and every one of
the multiple sales each and
every one of those 35-plus
agents is working on.
Unquestionably, short sales
bring a set of issues that can be
difficult, time-consuming and
exasperating for even the most
seasoned Realtor. Each and
every lender I've spoken to in
the last three years has ex-
pressed similar exasperation
when dealing with a short sale.
The reasons for the compli-
cations in a short-sale are as
diverse as the transactions
themselves.
Seller cooperation, the
number of mortgages on the
property, the amounts of the


mortgages, and current market
value are just a few of the fac-
tors that influence the short
sale. These factors are outside
the control of the lender and
outside the control of the
Realtor. In my experience most
lenders are overwhelmingly
relieved to get short sales com-
pleted and the properties off
their books.
Lenders are regulated by
individual bank rules and stip-
ulations. All parties to a trans-
action buyer, seller, Realtor,
lender work diligently to
meet deadlines and make sure
paperwork is in order. Each of
the parties has its own agenda,
yet all work together to reach
that common goal.
Presently, there are no in-
dustry-wide guidelines for
lenders to follow relating to a
short sale. The government,
together with the National As-
sociation of Realtors, is work-
ing on standardized paper-
work that would streamline
the short-sale process. Every
Realtor and lender with whom
I've spoken is anxiously await-
ing these guidelines.
Short sales are a fact of life
affecting all of us right now.
Everyone involved in the
transaction is working togeth-
er to get to a closing.
It requires a tremendous
amount of patience, knowl-
edge and organization to reach
a closing; the more we work
together, the more everyone
benefits.

Barbara Saputo is president
of the Venice Area Board of
Realtors.


Business puts new spin on signs


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


ROTARY
MGM Business Events

'- .



U "" -. .
SUN PHOTO BY ROGER BUTTON
Professional sign spinner Dustin Ellis directs members of the
Venice-Nokomis Rotary Club to their new club meeting venue
at the Venice Yacht Club.


Chuck Stringham is in a whirl
with his new project, MGM Sign
Spinners, 312 E. Venice Ave., Suite
207, in the Seaboard Office Park.
He plans to introduce Venice and
eventually the Gulf Coast to the
advertising concept of sign spin-
ning.
The relatively new concept
started in California. MGM Busi-
ness Events expanded it to Ten-
nessee two years ago, and
Stringham has partnered with the
owners to operate in this area. He
describes it as the hottest new
way to advertise.
Professionally trained em-
ployees spin signs safely, market-


ing to the passing public. At-
tracting drivers' attention by spin-
ning the sign, the spinner stops,
shows the driver and passengers
the sign, ensuring they read it,
then points in the direction of the
advertiser.
If the business is off the main
road, the spinner moves people
toward the advertiser by pointing
traffic in that direction.
"It is very effective because you
can read the sign and are encour-
aged to stop and visit," said

OUR VIEW


Florida not making the grade on clean water


It was a little dismaying to see that
Florida rated only a "D+" grade in
a recent Gulf water quality score-
card drawn up by an environmental
coalition.
OK, maybe the headmaster was
being a little tough with the grades. As
you might imagine from the group's
name, the Gulf Restoration Network
has a critical point of view from the
outset.
And three of the four major cate-
gories assessed by the network did
manage "C" grades. Mediocre, yes,
but sounds a lot better than a "D."
Still, this state is proud of its beach-
es, and our economy and quality of life
depend on clean water and healthy
beaches, so any lousy grade stings.
Florida and the four other Gulf
states all flunked one big category:
nitrogen and phosphorus pollution
standards. The EPA recently agreed to


settle a court case brought by the
Florida Wildlife Federation over set-
ting numeric limits for this type of
pollution, so we hope and expect to
see measurable improvement in this
category and a corresponding rise
on the report card in coming years.
As Gulf Network Restoration repre-
sentatives noted in their press confer-
ence, the greatest impact will come
when the state gets serious about the
problem and sets stricter regulations
to meet actual number-based clean
water goals. Local governments and
residents also have an important role
to play.
We recently noted our long-held
position that urban runoff deserved a
larger share of the blame for pollution
in the Gulf and the waterways that
feed into it. Local government and
individuals can make a difference.
For instance:


Fertilizer ordinances can be
strengthened. Sarasota and Charlotte
counties took steps in recent years to
adopt fertilizer ordinances. They
made a good start. The problem is
that Charlotte's does not ban the use
of synthetic nitrogen and phosphorus
during the rainy season. Sarasota
bans the use, but not the sale of these
fertilizers. It's easy enough to buy it
and use it, if people choose.
We certainly urge homeowners to
refrain, but it would be much more ef-
fective to remove the temptation in
the first place. Sarasota should take
the next step forward; Charlotte
should take two. It's simple enough to
follow the law already on the books in
St. Petersburg.
Personal responsibility counts
too. Chris Costello, the Sierra Club's
regional representative, said people
underestimate the effect of grass clip-


pings left on sidewalks and driveways.
Nitrogen-rich yard waste flushes into
drains and contributes to pollution.
Current county regulations require
that people sweep up after mowing;
not everyone does.
Pet waste piles up. According to
some estimates, dogs may deposit as
much as 14 tons of waste on road-
sides daily in Sarasota County. Even
half that amount is a staggering
thought.
Counties need to consider enact-
ing pooper-scooper laws. People
need to pick up after their pets,
whether it's the law or not. Regu-
lations will help, but at the end of the
day's dog walk, it will be a matter of
individual responsibility.
We just can't see why anyone
would not take simple steps to protect
something that is so vital to our
future, cleaner water.


What to do?


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


Each government entity
tries to put aside enough
money to handle either special
projects or the unexpected.
There seems to be no sacred
formula for how much to set
aside.
The Government Finance
Officers Association recom-
mends a reserve of 5 to 15 per-
cent of general fund operating
revenues, or one to two
months of general fund oper-
ating expenditures. The city of
Venice reserves three months
of the budget.
One option the city has
identified to balance the
upcoming budget is to not
raise taxes, but take the money
we are short from reserves.
That would leave us at $8 mil-
lion at the three-month point.
In Venice, the one thing that
has traditionally been funded
from this account has been the
beach nourishment that hap-
pens every 10 years. That
agreement extends until about
2045. The next round of adding
sand happens around 2015.
Finance Director Jeff Sny-
der has been putting $250,000
a year into the kitty with the
thought that under the formu-
las used in the past we would
need a couple million dollars.
This works unless, of
course, the federal or state gov-
ernment decides that is a thing
it is going to cut. Then it would
be better to have more.
Most good accounting prin-
ciples say that three months'
expenses is a good amount to
have in reserve. Of course, we
set aside more than some
because of the fact we reside
on the coast.
Yet there is one other
expense that is coming up: the
legal fees from the e-mail
scandal, and likely extra legal
costs associated with airport
negotiations. This amount is
not budgeted. I do not know
why, because we certainly
know it will be a cost most like-
ly paid out in the 2010 fiscal
year.
Where would we pay that
from? That would have to
come from the reserves. That
could cause a problem as we
would fall below the three-
month cushion. That would
seem to mean that we either


relax our three-month cushion
guideline or raise taxes.

Jane Lachiusa brought in
the Patriot newspaper from
the Kutztown area of
Pennsylvania. There were lots
of youth pictures in color and a
full page of color photos of the
Deutsche Classic, where own-
ers of the German cars come
for a rally. Kind of neat.

Venice MainStreet has been
working with a company to
provide valet parking down-
town. It has not met with the
city on all the details but very
likely come fall we will have
valet parking downtown. It
would likely be in front of TJ
Carney's in the middle of block
two of downtown.

Venice Regional Medical
Center is one employer that is
adding employees. It has 139
more than a year ago and has
had for seven or eight straight
months the best months in the
history of HMA owning the
hospital.
When it finishes the current
$6 million renovation of the
south wing of the second floor,
VRMC will then have 70 per-
cent single rooms.
In the last three days I have
had three people tell me about
the exceptional care they got
there.

Today's Ism: Gulf Coast
Community Foundation of
Venice just gave out $2.1 mil-
lion to help the operating bud-
gets of needy nonprofits. It
would be a great time for it to
stop the promotional series it
has done for years with WEDU
out of Tampa. Most of that
money is not spent in the ser-
vice area where the money was
pledged to be spent.
In any case, it is the time to
spend on nonprojects with
needs.

The county is looking for
volunteers for Coastal Cleanup
Day Saturday, Sept. 19. You
must sign up by this Friday.
You can accomplish that by
calling 861-5397. You can also
register at Westfield Mall,
which will pick one of those
registrants to receive a $500
shopping spree.
Last year the county had
1,000 volunteers.

There still is a shortage of
blood. One opportunity to give
is at Synovus Bank today
(Wednesday) from 10 a.m. to 4
p.m.

WHAT ARE THE KEY ISSUES IN THIS YEAR'S CITY COUNCIL RACE? CALL US
AT 207-1111.


Help wanted ... but not given

Road show. My comment is about all the nonprofit organiza-
tions being given money by the city. Why is Venice MainStreet
considered a nonprofit organization when it has two major
events on Venice Avenue, two events scheduled on Miami
Avenue and one in June in Centennial Park? All five of those are
fundraisers to raise money for Venice MainStreet. It also has a
paid membership and associate memberships. So I don't know
why the food bank, which doesn't close down roads and doesn't
receive money from a paid membership, doesn't get money.


Clean-up time. It is a shame
- the condition of downtown
Venice, other than the fact that
the homeowners make their
yards look nice. There needs to
be new plants, new streets to re-
place all the cracked-up streets
and curbing, some grass it's a
shame how neglected it is.
Council members should stop
arguing with each other and
spending money on lawyers'
fees and invest it into the down-
town area. Clean up those lots. It
ought to be pristine.
Usurpation. I just came
from a visit to the dentist, and I
must say I deeply resent the
fact that dentists are taking
over a medical doctor's duties,
or so it seems. It seems to me
that one's primary physician is
the only one who has the right
to prescribe a prescription for
an antibiotic. The wrong pre-
scription by someone who
doesn't know the complete
background of a patient can be
very dangerous. Blood-pres-
sure readings also should be
left to a medical doctor. 4
No jail. I'm calling because
the new Sarasota County jail
does not belong in the Os-
prey/Laurel/Nokomis area.
We've already got the dump
out here where everybody in
Sarasota County brings their
garbage. I think that's enough
for us to handle. As far as busi-
nesses go, I know that jails are
bringing money if they get the
right prisoners in there, but no
jail belongs in this area. It's


Let 'em


Have It


beautiful here. It's quiet. We
don't want people standing up
there on the highway with
their thumbs out hitching a
ride on 75 or walking through
our neighborhoods. And I'm
sure businesses won't want to
build around there either -
good businesses that we're
hoping to get here in our area.
On the couch. I read the
comment Recall? No, re-elect.
Anybody who supports our
city council and will re-elect
them needs to have their head
examined. Our city council
and mayor have thrown away
any sense of responsibility to
further their own agendas. We
should be voting to recall them
and put a new city council and
mayor in place. Look at the


front page of the Gondolier Sun
and see what our tax rates have
to rise to in order to cover the
deficit, which does not include
the idiotic lawsuit about the
Sunshine Law or the settlement
for the short-term rentals.
Face job. To citizens sup-
porting slow growth in a small-
town atmosphere: I do agree,
but sprawl did happen and it
did help keep our taxes down
somewhat. The more you
bring in in taxes, the less you
have to pay. At some point,
however, it all catches up to
where we are now. But we are
still building new commercial
buildings, and we keep letting
new businesses open up. So
now, in a retirement commu-
nity (which the majority does
want it to be) they don't want it
to be a tourist mecca to benefit
a small-town business com-
munity. According to President
Obama, who won the election
overwhelmingly, small busi-
nesses create 80 percent of all
new jobs. So if we don't grow
somewhat, how do we pay for
higher taxes, higher water bills,
higher insurance bills and
higher food prices? Will you, as
slow-growth people, stop all
new businesses, stop all new
building? How can you stop it?
Will you save our old business-
es that have put their time and
money into Venice for many
years? Do you, the so-called
majority of residents who want
to keep this a small town feel,
shop in town and go out to eat
in town with your money, or
do you leave town? Because if
you do, you're talking out of
both sides of your face.
No shirt. I'll like to know
where locally I can buy those
T-shirts and bumper stickers
that say "Impeach Obama."
I've seen them everywhere
else, but I can't seem to find
them in the Venice area. If any-
body knows where to get
them, please let me know.

Tired of hearing
about airport noise
Editor:
I understand there is a
lot being said about the
noise from the Venice air-
port.
When I was very
young, my family was
very poor. Back then liv-
ing with family was a part
of getting set up in life.
After a while that grows
old, so my grandfather
decided that my father's
idea might have some
merit.
Grandpa had a coal
and ice company that he
had closed. This left the
old office building just
sitting there. My father
had suggested that if a
living room were added,
it would be livable for the
short term.
The family got together
and built on the addition.
With this new addition,
the building was within 50
feet of the Pennsylvania
Railroad tracks.
Oh yes, we had run-
ning water ... so long as
the well pipes or pump
didn't freeze. Then there
were the "facilities" right
across from the front
door. Yes, there was a
crescent moon in the
door too.
The thing I remember
most was when a freight
train would go rumbling
down these tracks. The
whole house would
shake like crazy. I re-
member standing up in
my crib and riding it
around the kitchen. Great
fun, those memories.
So, I'm a little worn out

GUEST COLUMNIST


The city comprehen-
sive plan was received by
the Department of Com-
munity Affairs on July 18,
2007,and returned on
Sept. 17, 2007. We were
instructed to "adopt,"
"adopt with changes" or
"not adopt" the state's
proposed changes within
120 days. That is, within
120 days from Sept. 17,
2007.
We are within days of
being two years late and
have accomplished none
of the recommendations;
rather, we have chosen to
start from scratch writing
a different plan. I am not
aware of the state's agree-


warning us that the na-
tion will be hit by a finan-
cial tsunami if we don't
change direction and get
back on a solid economic
foundation. Yet many in
Washington seem un-
concerned and continue
to steer the economy di-
rectly toward the in-
coming tidal wave.
Fred Barnes, executive
editor of The Weekly
Standard, gives an excel-
lent summary of the prob-
lem:
"There's no evidence
Obama has even a sketchy
grasp of economics. Is
President Obama an eco-
nomic illiterate? Harsh as
that sounds, there's grow-
ing evidence he under-


plan, open cash register


ment with this approach.
The comprehensive
plan that we have pro-
duced has consumed the
time of the planning
commission and council
over a long period. There
has been a total of 58
meetings, some lasting
as long as all day, to pro-
duce the document that
that was generated for
final approval. It is defec-
tive in numerous ways.
First: it is an invitation
for land owners to file
Burt Harris lawsuits. In
this respect, we have
already received our first
one: Discovery Village.
This complaint was a
result of our reducing
density (units per acre).
The loss claimed was
$1,021,000.
The owner, through
his attorney, has offered
to withdraw his claim,
since we have agreed to
accommodate his
request to restore the
original density, if we will
pay his attorney fees of
$152,399.
This is just the begin-
ning. We can expect nu-


stands little about eco-
nomics and even less
about economic growth or
job creation....
"He wants to eliminate
many deductions for up-
per-middle-class and
wealthy taxpayers. He's
eager to spur the growth
of unions, though suc-
cess here is likely to slow
the rate of growth and in-
crease the rate of unem-
ployment. He wants gov-
ernment to intervene
more aggressively in the
economy, a reliable job
killer. He's asked for au-
thority to seize any finan-
cial institution deemed
(by his administration) a
'systemic risk' to the
economy. He thinks gov-


merous similar suits in
the future, which the
plaintiffs will probably
win. Judgments will be in
the multimillion-dollar
range, totaling more than
the city could ever pay.
These kinds of restric-
tions density, building
heights and other similar
restrictions if adopted
at all, should be con-
tained in land-use regu-
lations, not in our com-
prehensive plan. If the
restrictions were in the
land-use regulations
where they belong and a
Burt Harris suit were
filed, we would have the
flexibility to meet the
plaintiff's demands, rath-
er than facing a court
judgment after spending
still more hundreds of
thousands in legal fees.
The inevitable judg-
ment $2 million, $3
million, $4 million, $5
million, maybe as much
as $10 million? Let's not
go there again.

John Simmonds is a
member of Venice City
Council.


ernment can teach the
private sector lessons in
efficiency. That would be
an historic first. He be-
lieves his budget, which
triples the national debt,

secure and lasting pros-
perity.
Whew! And this is just
what Obama has pro-
posed in the first six
months of his presiden-
cy. Obamanomics pays
lip service to a free-mar-

hasn't a clue what makes
it work.
The solution is simple:

MR. SHEEPSHEAD

Secret paradise

off Venice beach?

Two reliable sources have
revealed a secret reef just off
Venice beach. I was a bit
skeptical after the first story,
but changed my mind after
hearing the second story. I
was sworn to my word I
wouldn't reveal the exact
location.
Both of the sources are
divers and they said they
never expected to see any-
thing like this in our area. The
only thing I can to tell you is
this reef is between a half
mile and 1 mile out and the
depth changes by about 10
feet.
The entire area was loaded
with sealife. The divers said
the water was so clear that
they could see many species
of fish near or at the bottom,
which was loaded with coral
and sponges.
A few of the species of fish
were: at least three kinds of
grouper, snappers, sheeps-
head, barracudas, jacks and
even Spanish mackerel.
Some of the grouper were
well more than legal size.
They weren't sure of the
names of the snappers other
than the mangroves, but
many were at least 3 pounds.
They couldn't identify many
of the plants and flowers.
Who would ever believe
we have something this fan-
tastic so close to our shore? I
apologize for not being able
to reveal more information.
A free seminar on fishing
tips and techniques will be
held from 10 to 11:30 a.m.,
Saturday, Sept. 12, at The
Nautical Trader, 110 East
Colonia Lane, Nokomis. The
seminar will be hosted by me
and John Mather. For more
information, call 488-0766.
Well, fellow Sheepshead-
ites, the time has come to say
goodbye until next week.

Hack. Contact him at

Without hesitation, Venice's Dino
Fanti knows how good the Indians
football team can be.
"State championship," the junior
lineman said. "No doubt in my mind
we can play in the state champi-
onship and win."
His confidence and love for the
game is a big reason why the Indians
are counting on the 6-foot, 245-pound
defensive tackle/offensive guard this
season.
After having a week off, the Indians


After getting shutout the
first week of the season, the
Venice Vikings came back in
the second week to win four of
five games on Sept. 5 at Letson
Stadium in Venice.
Last week, the North Port
Mustangs blanked the Vikings.
The Vikings play at Fort
Myers Riverdale on Sept. 12.
Kings 13, Charlotte 0
The Kings got a 53-yard
touchdown run by Jared Bailey
for a 6-0 lead. The PAT missed.
In the third quarter, the Kings
added a 52-yard touchdown
run by Scott Schenke. Bailey
scored the extra point on a run.
Offensive lineman were
key in the win as the Kings got
key blocks all game to keep
drives alive. The effort was led
by Justin Hanley, Mosihas
Romero, Carson Stovall, Noah
Lay, Dylan Randall, Justin
Holloway and Tanner Hilton.
The Kings also got strong run-
ning from Brett Keyso, Chip
Barber and Josh LeBlanc.
The defense was led by the
play of Derrick Kipp and Sam
Whitney, who played tough on
the outside preventing the big
plays. Key interceptions by
Wil "Hollywood" Coons and
Tanner Nicol helped seal the
deal for the win.
Knights 18, Charlotte 12
After giving a touchdown on
the first play from the scrim-
mage, the Knights defense set-
tled in and played hard hold-
ing Charlotte scoreless until
late in the fourth quarter.
Outside linebackers Preston

game.

"Dino just has great instincts for
the game," said Venice offensive line
coach Dave Butler. "Probably better
instincts than anyone else on the
team. He is a just a football player.
Dino is a great player. His intensity
and his passion to want to play foot-
ball. He loves the game of football and
that is why he is as good as he is."

Manatee
BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

Venice showed Manatee the
difference between a team play-
ing its fourth match and its first
match.
The Lady Indians served 18
aces in their three-game sweep
of the Lady Hurricanes, 25-12,
25-8, 25-12, Tuesday in the
Class 5A-District 10 opener at
Manatee High.
The win keeps Venice unbeat-
en with a 4-0 record and 1-0 in
the five-team district.
Venice jumped out quickly on
Manatee, 8-1, with the help of
three aces. Unforced errors gave
Manatee most of its points in the
first game as the Lady 'Canes
were held without a kill.
Junior Autumn Duyn, who
ended with seven kills, nearly
closed out the first game with
five straight service points
including four aces. She finished
with six aces.
Venice played without its
starting middle hitter, Jillian
Allen, who was out sick.
The Lady Indians have so much
depth that senior Whitney
Steranko filled in and finished with
a team-high eight kills. Steranko
had three kills in the first game.
"We have a lot of depth,"
Wheatley said. "The thing about
our team, they can play any posi-
tion on the court. They are really
solid all-around volleyball players."
Good night
Manatee led 4-2 in the second
game, then Venice outscored the
Lady Hurricanes 6-0 to grab the
lead thanks to three kills by
Emily Daniels.
The Lady Indians went ahead
23-7 on nine straight service
points from setter Taylor Capasso,
who had five aces, eight digs
and 28 assists.
Venice didn't have any trouble
in the third game.
"Just a matter of prepare like
you are in second place and
compete like you are in first
place," Wheatley said.
Duyn and libero Dorothy
Rahal had 10 digs each while
Herschberger had five kills and
three aces.
In the freshman match, Venice
won, 25-7,25-16, to raise its record
to 3-0. The Lady Indians junior
varsity team won, 25-16, 25-5,
for its fourth straight victory.

FANTI from Page 8A


"Better practices and everyone
doing their job," Fanti said. "We
have everything laid out. If every-
one does their job and there is no
one that can beat us."
Although the Indians started
out the season with a loss to
nationally ranked Oscar Smith
High of Chesapeake, Va., Fanti
had a stellar game especially on
defense.
Fanti was named the team's
defensive MVP as he finished
with a game-high six tackles and
two sacks in the Indians' 27-13
loss on national television.
"I was just playing like I prac-
tice, playing my position and
doing my job," Fanti said.
Although he admits to having a
good game, he only gave himself
a grade of B-.
Last year, Fanti said, he started
four or five games at defensive
tackle then started at offensive
tackle the last couple games of
the season.
He finished with 21 tackles and
11 assists.
This year, he is playing both
sides of the ball.
"It is no tougher than any of
these practices," Fanti said about
playing both ways.
"He has more of a defensive
mentality," Butler said. "He has to
play defense for us because he is
so good at it. He does a good job
on offense too because he brings
that physicality to the offensive
line which is something we need.
He is an intense and physical
person."
Fanti started playing football
at 6 years old on Venice Pop
Warner because his stepdad, Joe
Belevacqua, loved the game. He
continued until eighth grade
when he couldn't play because of
weight restrictions.
"I was a natural at it and I liked
playing it," Fanti said.
He also likes the idea of hit-

Fanti would like to play college
football after he graduates next
year.
"I actually went on a potential
recruit trip to USF (University of
South Florida) last week," Fanti
said. "It was a lot of fun and I
enjoyed doing it."
Butler also thinks Fanti could
play college football on a full
scholarship.
The week off last week gave
Venice football head coach John
Peacock a chance to look over his
personnel.
"We made some personnel
changes on the offensive line,"
Peacock said. "Some people
weren't getting their job done and
we had to make some changes."
"We could have beat them

rushed for another 78 yards. The
Indians have had two weeks to pre-
pare for Braden River after having a
bye week last week. This is the third
meeting between the schools as
Venice defeated the Pirates 31-17
last year as the offense gained 369
yards. Venice's defense, which
allowed 371 yards to Oscar Smith,
will have junior linebacker Kye
Rodgers back in the starting lineup.
Rodgers has been out since having
off-season shoulder surgery. Rodgers

thought we did a lot of good
things but we also did a lot of bad
things."
"I think we are still the same
team," Peacock said. "I still think
we are a really good football team.
I think we are better now than
before we went up there. I think it
was a great test and gave us a
great measuring stick. They were
able to expose some things on the
offensive line. It did everything
that a Kickoff Classic game would
have done."
Getting the first win is impor-
tant to the Indians.
"We have to get back on track,"
Peacock said. "We haven't won
one yet. We have all this hype
behind us but we have to go out
and prove it. We are going to be
fine. We have to put it all together."

Bonding with a daughter is always special

What could be more wonderful than to be able to spend an .-nuiir \\,-rk \\h ( )lb(on, \\ho( i oni. b 1
the most important people in your life? Certainly nothing that I think () I luI i.ii/ i- I Lhi,
This past February as I, along with my daughter, Angela Majkicinos,. \\u 111 mI\- -
ed to join a group of osteopathic medical personnel on a week-lon; ) ni.m, in-
itarian trip to Guatemala.
"Skip" Rusco D.O., of Venice and his daughter, Lori Lans,.-i k. \\ho i) .1
liver transplant nurse, are members of DOCARE International, .1 mi nlil,.h, I I
organization dedicated to providing health care to impoverish. I p l( phi
in Latin America and Africa.
This year, a trip to Guatemala was planned by DOCARE, an, I. \ing 1. i
and I were honored to tag along. Angela, a Spanish teachli in
Sarasota, was a valuable asset as an interpreter. She was a resist h Int
of Guatemala for 10 years following her tenure in the Peace Coi p,
and is totally fluent in Spanish.
Although not totally fluent, I am able to communicate effe- -
tively enough to be of some help. My primary purpose, howe-
er, was to photograph and document the trip for DOCARI
International.
Rusco, as a senior physician, worked with other doctors
and students providing treatment to patients and education
to students. Lori, as a nurse, filled many worthwhile slots,
including calming many of the lively, yet shy children.

A step back in time
Arriving in Guatemala was truly like stepping back in tim i. -
The airport, although new, appears to be plagued with a lack ()
paying customers. Nearly empty when we arrived, the termin il, \\ i-n
filled with new equipment that shone like newly minted coins I hl.- -

journeyed to Guatemala with their fathers and others associated
iith DOCARE International to provide medical care to needy people.
.eft. Lori Lansverk. a nurse from Sarasota. helped treat children, such
as this young Guatemalan boy. while on a mission with
r DOCARE International. Right.The "chicken bus" was
used to transport the DOCARE International volunteers
and their gear to a Guatemalan village.

""- tuls, nurses, pllainacists, students and othei volunteers,
boarded two "chicken buses." The buses are so named because local farmers use the buses to
S, take their products to market chickens, pigs and myriad other items. Medical equipment,
Fi .T i" pharmaceuticals and other gear were loaded on top, while seats within the bus were filled by the
volunteers who were anxious to share their knowledge and expertise with villagers in towns such
/u \ n, as Patzicia, San Jose Poaqil and Comalapa.

Lines form
People, many of whom most assuredly had never been to a doctor, lined the streets in
S*:anticipation of free medical care and medications. Among the people treated were several with
.' bodies that reflected years of back-breaking work. Women who had borne children numbering in
double digits, and then returned to the fields as soon as the children were born, arrived for treat-
inent from our group.
Children with sad faces and runny noses, yet with happy hearts, joined the queue and clambered
-. hioughli our facilities.
It hl, i been said you can't miss something you have never had. Most of these people had never had prop-
Sti i n ition, quality medical care or even a hot shower.
In just four days, our team, including Rusco and our two daughters, treated and worked with nearly
l I 1111 indigent people. Most were receiving medical care for the first time in their lives.
likingng the streets of this Third World country with my daughter was a special treat, especially watch-
ing the tenderness and love she and the others in our group, shared with those less fortunate.
lI usco and I agreed that to have made this trip with the company of our daughters, both angels in
S lii- mind of this writer, made this trip even more special.
i[ I lere's hoping we can do it again.

Commissioner urges people to learn food safety measures


FROM THE FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF
AGRICULTURE AND
CONSUMER SERVICES
Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson is urging peo-
ple to familiarize themselves with
basic food safety measures as
National Food Safety Education
Month began on Sept. 1.
The theme of the 2009 event is
Food Safety Thrives When You
Focus on Five, referring to the
basic food safety practices and
procedures.
This year the Food Safety and
Food Defense Advisory Council is
taking steps to reinforce one par-
ticular key food safety message to
young people so they will develop
good habits early on.
FDACS is responsible for ensur-
ing a safe wholesome food supply
- "From farm to fork" through
oversight of the agriculture indus-
try, inspections of retail food
establishments and laboratory
testing food products. But one of
the most important ways to pre-
vent food-borne illnesses actually
rests with consumers through the
proper washing of hands.
"When people thoroughly wash
their hands on a consistent basis,
they are going a long way toward
preventing the contamination of


their food, whether at home or eat-
ing in a restaurant," Bronson said.
FDACS and the Florida Restaurant
and Lodging Association have put
together a video done by kids that
showed how easy it is to pass
germs on to food without realizing
it. The video can be seen on You-
Tube by logging onto FDACS Food
Safety Web site at www.doacs.
state.fl.us.
Other important food safety
measures are in proper prepara-
tion and handling of foods in the
home. Here are some tips:
CLEAN. Wash hands and sur-
faces often. People need to wash
their hands with soap for at least
20 seconds before and after han-
dling food. They should also wash
cutting boards, countertops and
utensils with hot soapy water
before and after preparing each
food item. Rinse fresh fruit and
vegetables under running tap
water and rub firm-skin produce
with a vegetable brush.
SEPARATE. Cross-contamina-
tion can cause bacteria to spread
and consumers need to think
"safety" before leaving the grocery
store. When shopping, keep fresh
produce separated from house-
hold chemicals and raw meat,
poultry or seafood. Store fresh pro-
duce separately from raw meat,
poultry and seafood in the refrig-
erator. Use a different cutting


board for meats and vegetables to
avoid contamination.
COOK. It is important to use a
food thermometer to be sure food
is cooked to the proper tempera-
tures. Cook roasts and steaks to a
minimum of 145 degrees F; poul-
try should have a minimum inter-
nal temperature of 165 degrees E
Cook ground meat to a minimum
of 160 degrees F and leftovers and
casseroles should have an internal
temperature of 165 degrees E
CHILL. Bacteria spreads fast-
est at temperatures between 40
and 140 degrees F, so chilling food
properly is important. Chill left-
overs within two hours and keep
the fridge at 40 degrees F or lower.
Refrigerate or freeze meat, poultry,
eggs and other perishables as soon
as possible after purchase. Left-
overs should be put in shallow
containers so the food will chill
more quickly, preventing bacteria
from growing. Never defrost food
at room temperature. Food has to
be kept at a safe temperature dur-
ing thawing. Defrost food in one of
three ways: in the refrigerator, in
cold water or in the microwave.
More food safety information
can be found at www.doacs.
state.fl.us by linking to the Division
of Food Safety. Information on
National Food Safety Education
Month education is also available
at www.servsafe.com/nfsem.

OCCUPATIONAL DEMANDS


DR. DAN BUSCH, DR. ERENE ROMANSKI
CHIROPRACTOR
Your job can often make certain more
than normal demands on your body both
in position and movement. The 26
moveable bones in your spinal column and
sacroiliac joints, where the spine connects
to your hips, adapt themselves as well as
they can to the needs of your job.
Unexpected, awkward, and off-balance
movements can sometimes result in spinal
distortions that cause pain and discomfort.
Overexertion of seldom-used muscles, as


well as accidental injuries can do the same.
Any injury that occurs on the job is covered
by your employer's worker's compensation
insurance. This includes treatment by a
licensed doctor of chiropractic.
Treatment from your chiropractor for back
pain and other health disorders related to
your spinal column will not include drugs
or surgery. He or she will use highly skilled
manipulation techniques and other therapies
to correct any spinal misalignments that
may be interfering with the functioning of
your nervous system.

Elks scholarships make college possible


FROM THE ELKS
NATIONAL
FOUNDATION

The cost of college is
formidable, preventing
many deserving students
from attending at all and
leaving many others to
graduate with an over-
whelming amount of
debt.
Last year, the average
tuition at a private four-
year institution rose 5.9
percent, reaching $25,143,
and the average cost of


attending a public four-
year university increased
6.4 percent* (*College
Board (www.collegboard.
com/student/pay/add-it-
up).
The Elks National
Foundation's Most Val-
uable Student Scholar-
ship contest aims to alle-
viate this financial bur-
den for 500 ambitious
students.
This year, through the
Most Valuable Student
Scholarship, the Elks
National Foundation will


award $2.296 million,
giving students a chance
to earn a college educa-
tion without incurring
insurmountable loans.
The foundation awards
18 top winners scholar-
ships ranging from
$8,000 to $60,000 over
four years. The remain-
ing 482 runners-up
receive $4,000 scholar-
ships over four years.
This scholarship is
available to all high

had their salaries frozen. Both Leif Bjaland, artistic
director, and McKenna took 10 percent pay cuts.
Manatee Valentine Pops canceled
An important fundraising activity for youth pro-
grams for many years, Manatee Valentine Pops lost
$17,000 last season.
"Manatee County is an important part of our ser-
vice area, and this season we will continue to perform
five Masterworks concerts at Neel Performing Arts
Hall, as well as a special youth concert that features
our professional musicians," McKenna said.
Southern Serenade series canceled
The cost of bringing the orchestra to south
Sarasota County has made the cancellation of the
Southern Serenade series necessary. In its place, the
orchestra has created a three-concert Masterworks
subscription series at the Van Wezel with bus service
for South County residents.
Educational program cuts
Cuts in the orchestra's education programs include
the suspension of the Fiddlin' Fun program, the elimi-
nation of two lecture classes, a reduction of adult
ensembles from three to two and a later start for the
adult program, moving it from September to November.
No cuts are planned for the Youth Orchestra pro-
gram that serves more than 200 students or the Young
People's Concerts, which have introduced classical
music to more than 10,000 fourth- and fifth-graders
through local schools. Both programs are led by Dirk
Meyer, Youth Orchestra music director.

"Education remains a central part of our mission.
We are making every effort to continue the programs
we believe have the greatest positive impact on our
community and youth," said McKenna.
McKenna said the orchestra's fiscal challenges
include reduced government funding, fierce compe-
tition for reduced grant money, diminished corporate
giving, smaller individual gifts, a reduced endowment
income and uncertainty about ticket sales.
Despite the challenges, Bjaland expressed enthusi-
asm for the artistic season ahead.
"We know we are not alone among nonprofit and
for-profit organizations facing economic hardship,"
McKenna said. "We believe we have taken necessary
actions that will serve the orchestra well during the
recession and help us maintain the focus on our mis-
sion and contributions to the community."

FRAN VALENCIC
SOCIAL COLUMNIST


"I phoned Jamaica so I
could learn how to make a
perfect dirty banana," Nicole
Wanvig said, getting ready for
the luau at the YMCA. She
joined other sponsors and
the locals in creating what
Stephanie Plesz, chair of the
event, described as a friend-
raiser. The idea being to raise


funds for scholarships for
local families who use facili-
ties at the Y. This year's event
had over 50 sponsors.
Saturday night included
celebrity musicians The Cryiif
Shames and a supply of great
food and drinks. Tropical
chicken wraps, top shelf
Margarita cupcakes, Mango
Key Lime Tarts and Bogey's
Rum Punch were some of the
treats being offered. Michelle
Ryan, representing the Venice
Chamber of Commerce and
the Young Professionals, was
also hoping to attract mem-
bers to the group. Anyone
wishing to join the Young
Professionals can phone
Michelle at 488-2236.
The weather was perfect,
providing a great backdrop to
the festivities. It seems most
people are affiliated with the
YMCA in one way or another.


Either they use the facilities or
their grandchildren or chil-
dren do. Three cheers to
everyone who stepped up
to make this eighth annual
Hawaiian luau a colorful suc-
cess. "Everyone kind of came
together for this event and
helped put it on," Stephanie
Phelps said about the staff at
the Y. Bravo.
Kickoff
One thing that describes a
small town atmosphere is the
entire community support-
ing local high school sports.
This Friday everyone has a
chance to head down to
Venice High School for the
home opener football game,
which starts at 7:30 p.m.
Volleyball season already
began, and the girls play
again next Wednesday at 7
p.m. You can get an all sports


pass at Venice High School,
that way you are set for the
entire season.
One of our best
The special person this
week is David Yarzab, man-
ager of The Venice Yacht
Club. This nice man is one of
those people who doesn't
seem to require very much
sleep. Not only does he
appear at almost every event
at the yacht club, he manages
to work fundraisers in the
community too. David is a
man who when he sees
someone in need steps up to
help. He can be described as
an all-around nice guy.
David Yarzab is one of the
yacht club managers who
make Venice a great place to
live.

Where has the

summer gone?
Spooky season is upon us
even though summer is
really not over.
It is time to make reservations
for Mickey's Not So Scary
Halloween Party at what my pal
Evan Mudge refers to as "Mickey's
House" The Magic Kingdom in
the Walt Disney World Resort. The
not-so-scary fun began Sept. 4
and continues through Nov. 1. For
reservations on Halloween itself,
you might already be too late. Call
407-824-4321 or visit www.disney-
world.com.
Sept. 11-12, Disney's Hollywood
Studios host the 27th annual
Night of Joy, featuring contempo-
rary Christian Music. The same
weekend, there is a similar event
at Universal Studios which is
hosting a Rock the Universe
event, featuring still more
Christian Music stars. Tickets are
$49.95 atWDW and $49.99 at
Universal. Stay a night near each
park and make a weekend of it.
Visit www.disneyworld.com or
407-824-4321 and visit
www.rocktheuniverse.comor call
407-363-8000.
Or, do something really
different and head to the Orlando
Home Show, Sept. 18-20 at the
Orange County Convention
Center. Admission is $9 for adults
and $5 for children 6-12. Visit
www.orlandohomeshow.com or
call 407-685-9800.
At the end of the month, the
Epcot International Food&Wine
Festival begins. It runs from Sept.
25 through Nov. 8 and then it will
be almost time to head back to
Epcot for the Candlelight
Processional or to Magic King-
dom for another Mickey party.
Living where others play has its
challenges but we can see as
much as time and money allow
and without any flight delays.

Craft Festival is this weekend


PROVIDED BY AMERICAN
CRAFr ENDEAVORS
The Punta Gorda
Sullivan Street Craft
Festival celebrates its
12th anniversary Satur-
day Sunday as down-
town Punta Gorda is
transformed into an
outdoor craft art
showcase complete
with 150 crafters with
affordable original
works available for sale.
Local artist John
Shevlin is among the
artists and crafters who
will be participating in
the festival this year.
This former Corporate
Art Director has picked
up his brush and palette
again after a 20 year
hiatus. "I was frustrated
with all the computer
based tools I was using
as an artist. I wanted to
use my hands and this
produced my Tropical
Funk paintings; bold,
colorful and funky,
acrylics on canvas." says


Shevlin, whose work is
featured in many
galleries throughout
North America.
Shevlin is available
for interviews prior to
the festival.
In order to ensure a
superior event with
quality affordable
original crafts, all of the
local and national
crafters have been hand-
selected from hundreds
of applicants by Ameri-
can Craft Endeavors,
producers of the top
outdoor craft festivals
in the country.
Whether you are a
craft enthusiast or
looking for that unique
one-of-a-kind gift item,
there is something for
everyone. From folk art,
pottery, handmade
jewelry and paintings, to
personalized gifts,
handmade clothing,
scented soaps and body
products, a full spec-
trum of craft art medi-


ums will be on display
and for sale with prices
ranging from as little as
$3 to $3,000.
All of the crafters will
be at the festival with
their work, giving
visitors the opportunity
to talk with the crafters,
learn about their art and
what inspires them, and
of course purchase
original pieces.
Festival hours are
10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday.
The festival will be
held on Sullivan Street
in downtown Punta
Gorda.

Dinner can be murder Sarasota is getting 'killer' reputation


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Sarasota is getting the
same killer reputation
held by Clearwater
since 1998.
The entrepreneur
owners of Murders She
Wrote Inc. who serve up
murder and mayhem
monthly at the Grand
Hotel, 20967 US High-
way 19 North, in Clear-
water, have scheduled a
comparable killing spree
in Sarasota, planning it
right down to what meal
will accompany which
murder.
While dining on a
choice of entrees that
changes monthly,
patrons of the dinner
theater with the killer
theme, find themselves
involved in the action.
Everyone has to wear
name tags because it


makes it easier to
identify the body. The
person sitting next to
you might be the killer
- or the detective, the
coroner or, even the
victim. Everyone is a
potential suspect, even
your dear old Aunt
Hagatha who wouldn't
hurt a fly.
Murder, mayhem,
music and mirth make
for a fun evening in
which food and audi-
ence participation add
to the experience.
The actors come from
Brandon, Valrico, St.
Petersburg and
Zephyrhills to perform
in such mysteries as
"Murder in Sparkleville"
or "My Big Fat Italian
Funeral." What started
as occasional murders
has grown into a weekly
occurrence at the hotel,


where the deaths might
occur even before the
salad has been served.
As the bodies piled up
weekly at the Grand
Hotel, the only solution
was to find an additional
venue. The Sarasota
Hotel & Marina was
chosen because it
had a theater.
Sept. 12, Sarasota
dinner-goer/killers will
experience "Murder on a
Budget Cruise Line,"
while dining on Chicken
Teriyaki or Salmon with
Lobster Sauce. Patrons
arrive at 6 p.m. to
socialize possibly
with the killer. At 6:30
p.m. dinner and the
evening's adventure
(show) begins. Some
patrons are invited to
participate in the
mystery.
The Sarasota Hotel &


Marina is at 7150 North
Tamiami Trail, Sarasota,
FL 34243. It is north of
the airport on the west
side of the trail. Tickets
for dinner and the show
are $47.50 per person,
including tax and
gratuity.
Future shows in
Sarasota include "Mur-
der on the 19th Hole,"
Oct. 10; "Murder on the
Menu," Nov. 14; "Last
Will & TestaMint," Dec.
5; "Murder at the Class
reunion of St. Cecilia's
All-Girls School," Jan. 23;
"A Wedding to Die For,"
Feb. 13; "My Big Fat
Italian Funeral," March
13; "Murder In
Sparkleville," April 10;
"Murder on the Menu,"
May 22 and "Murder on
the 19th Hole, "June 12.

Getting down and dirty in Cracker lake


By PEGGI CONLIN
PACQUETTE
SPECIAL TO THE SUN
I have a new hobby.
It involves an ATV (All
Terrain Vehicle), water
and mud.
Finding a place to ride
an ATV that is safe and
reasonably priced was
the challenge. The new
Cracker Lake Motor-
sports Club facility was
the answer. Plans are to
have it evolve and
change as needed by its
users.
Located on State Road
64 at the Manatee/Hardy
County line, Cracker
Lake offers something
for every motorsports
enthusiast.
A friend and I went
there for Mud Bog
Weekend in July. We met
owners Russell and
Stephanie Adams, who
extended plenty of
Southern hospitality as
we set up camp for the
weekend.
Cracker Lake is usually
open two Saturdays a
month, but for longer
holidays such as July 4
and Labor Day, they
often remain open for
two consecutive days,
offering camping as an
option. Before you go,
consider that this is
camping of the most
primitive kind. There is
no electricity. We
brought our own genera-
tor. There are Port-a-
Potties and I was relieved
to find them clean.
Washing off the mud was
the biggest challenge.
There are only a couple
of hoses and there is
plenty of mud. When I
saw that I knew we were
in for an experience this
city girl was not used to,
but I survived and had a

ball of fun.
This is a multitude
facility. There are two
"purpose-built" mud pits
for ATVs, UTVs and
trucks and a track for
BMX enthusiasts. I was
impressed with the
safety aspects at the
facility. Helmets are
required for those under
18 and children need
releases signed by both
parents to operate an
ATV. The speed limit is
enforced at 5 miles per
hour. Families came with
kids of all ages and
everyone was having fun.
The dirtier they got, the
bigger the smiles.
After a shaky start, I
got into the mud hole
with the rest of them and
proceeded to get dirtier


than I ever have in my
life. My grandma used to
say digging in the dirt is
good for the soul. I guess
my soul was pretty good
that weekend.
Admission to Cracker
Lake is $20 for the day.
Camping and riding for
the weekend is $30.

all those seeking gener-

Occupying two
storefronts in a strip

the room is long and
narrow and unpreten-

outlined in lights and
faux grape vines at
either end; the side
walls are lined with

September at The Players


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Off to an early star in
the celebration of its
80th anniversary, The
Players offers The
Storytellers, a band
playing music of and
from the '60s at 8 p.m.
Saturday.
The band consists of
singer, songwriter John
Howard; guitarist
Captain Matt Baker;
bassist Greg Voorhees;
and drummer/percus-
sionist Joe Hendricks.
Each one was there in
the 60s and each one
has stories to tell of the
stars they associated
with people such as
Buddy Holly, the
Stones, the Grateful
Dead, the Everly
Brothers and even the
Beatles.
They also will per-
form music from their
own latest recording.
Tickets are $15 per
person.


This counts as part of
the anniversary cele-
bration because it
showcases the diversity
of offerings at the
theater since its first
one-act play was
presented back in 1930
when it all began.

Broadway
Ten days later, The
Players offers the first
of six musicals to be
presented for the
anniversary season,
Cole Porter's Tony
Award-winning show,
"Anything Goes."
While the title might
describe the variety of
offerings at the sec-
ond-oldest theater in
Florida and the oldest
performing arts facility
on the Cultural Coast,
the story is a humor-
ous and musical
account of a group of
colorful characters
(including a stowaway
