Keeping an eagle eye


No tax mill increase
BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR A& ot m ai-


PHOTO COURTESY OFTOM WESTFALL
Reader Tom Westfall spotted this American bald eagle from the
north parking lot at Sharky's On The Pier.


On Tuesday Venice City
Council voted 5-2 to keep ad
valorem property taxes at the
current 2.779 mills for the third
year in a row.
Two weeks ago it adopted a
tentative higher rollback rate
of 3.2253 to fill a $2.5 million
budget shortfall, but citizen
comments from both ends of
the political spectrum chang-
ed their minds.
Instead, council will use re-
serves to cover the shortfall.
"This is ... about not raising
taxes in the middle of a reces-
sion," said resident John Lewis
during public comment. "I
don't care what your excuse is.
Raising (the mill rate) is a bur-
den, which causes more taxes,


Martin


Lang Simmonds Zavodnyik


which causes more inflation
and increases the cost of living.
The people are being over-
taxed now. The citizen is on the
short end of things, and you
are in the position of alleviat-
ing that a bit."
Council heard the message
loud and clear, but sentiment
on the dais was more mixed
than the vote showed.
Mayor Ed Martin wanted
the higher rollback millage rate


to leave more reserve funds un-
touched for another year. Last
year the city took $1 million
from reserves.
In the end he voted to keep
the current millage, only after
learning more reserves may be
available.
"I wanted it to be a clear
majority," Martin said after the
vote.

Ethics

investigation

moves forward


'Pineapples' is the new landmark


Moore


Willson


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

The Florida Commission on
Ethics this week issued notice
that it found "sufficient evi-
dence" to proceed with an
investigation of Council Mem-
ber John Moore.
Bill Willson, a former Venice
City Council member, filed an
ethics complaint which alleges
Moore and other council mem-
bers conspired to have their pri-
vate attorney fees related to the
Sunshine lawsuit paid by the city.
"I hope to get $126,000 (that
Moore was reimbursed) back
into the city coffer. The city
cannot violate the Sunshine
Law. People do that,"Willson
said.

Mysterious auto
burglaries solved

BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR

Good police work, coopera-
tive teen suspects and wise
parents solved the vehicle bur-
glaries that have plagued Ven-
ice.
Two teens have been arrest-
ed and charged with burglary
of a conveyance. This is be-
lieved to be the end of several
months of auto burglaries that
occurred near the Beach Paw
Park, the Venice Fishing Pier
and Venice Beach, all with the
exact same MO.
The names of the teens are
being withheld pending com-
pletion of the investigation.
"The boys are 16 and 17 and
they and their parents are
cooperating," said Venice Po-
lice Department Det. Ron So-
lanes.
That cooperation has led
police to other burglaries be-
lieved to have been committed
by the teens.

Good morning

BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Tom Carney's new restau-
rant and nightclub replacing
the former Landmark restau-
rant will be called "Pineap-
ples."
"It has no particular
meaning to me," he said,
"just something that just
came into my head."
When he recently leased
the former Landmark restau-
rant, 133 South Tamiami
Trail, he proposed the name
"South Beach Restaurant and
Nightclub." After reflecting
on the services he intends to
provide, he considers Pine-
apples a more appropriate
name.
"I never intended a night-
club for 21- to 30-year-olds,
but entertainment for older
adults," said Carney, the
owner of TJ Carney's, 231 W.
Venice Ave.
He will be concentrating
on adults who will enjoy
entertainment similar to that
at TJ Carney's. Popular band
G Force and similar groups
will entertain inside, while
out front on the deck he will
have steel drum and reggae
groups.

An artist's rendering of Pineapples, the indoor and outdoor restaurant replacing the former Landmark
restaurant. This illustration shows the existing West Miami Avenue structure to the right and the new
covered restaurant extension to be built on the front parking lot.


"I want to open Pine-
apples on Dec. 31, the anni-
versary of my opening TJ
Carney's in 1998," he said.
Anticipating that bids will
be in this week and permits
in a few days, he plans to start
building in two weeks.
Demolition began a month
ago and has been completed.
Pineapples will have seat-
ing for 160 in the dining


room. A South Beach-style
outdoor restaurant on raised
decking for 200 diners with
seating under awnings and
umbrellas replaces the front
parking lot. An additional
party room capable of seat-
ing 100 diners will be avail-
able for private groups. Dur-
ing season Carney antici-
pates hiring 80 people.
The Landmark restaurant,


formerly Smitty's restaurant,
suddenly closed in January
2004.
Nine months later the
empty shell was purchased
for $1,675,000 by Atlantic
Shores Realty of New York,
which recently leased the
building to Carney with an
option to buy.

City reaffirms support for performing arts center


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Supporters of the perform-
ing arts center planned at
Venice High School were re-
lieved to hear Tuesday that city
council has no intention of
dropping the project.
Gary Budway and Rose-
mary Vauzanges, president
and director respectively of the
Venice Taxpayers League, urg-
ed council to reject the project
in light of what they called
more pressing sewer and water
infrastructure needs. They also
sit on the city Tax Oversight
Committee that reviews how
money is spent on the penny
surtax projects.
But council didn't act on
their recommendation, and
instead reaffirmed what resi-
dents already voted on to
support the building of a com-
munity performing arts center
similar to the 7,000 square foot
center at North Port High.

"The commitment made by
earlier councils is one we
intend to honor," said Mayor
Ed Martin.
The issue came up during
recent budget deliberations
after Budway learned of recent
changes to the original plan.
The Sarasota County School
Board found it could reduce
the cost from $8.4 million to
$7.5 million if it moved the
project's start date up from
2015 to 2010.
Council Member John
Moore, who sits on a steering
committee that has been plan-
ning the design and hashing
out user agreements and an
interlocal agreement with the
county, said he advised the
school board to clear it with
city leaders, but it was never
brought before council.
It's an issue that must be
addressed, he said, or it could
jeopardize the entire project.
"It's an opportunity that
comes once in a lifetime,"

Moore said. '
"This isn't
going to hap-
pen unless it r -
happens in a
partnership
with the high
schools."
Another
complication Budway
recently sur-
faced. When school board offi-
cials learned from the Florida
Department of Education they
couldn't demolish the music
suite building constructed four
years ago, the district asked the
city pay for its maintenance,
estimated at $18,000 annually.
City leaders agreed to the
capital expenditure, but not
any maintenance, Moore said.
"That was not a part of our
commitment," Moore said.
"The question becomes ... will
council consider gong beyond
its capital contribution?"
Not tearing down the music
suite saved $304,000, and

building sooner will save more
than $1 million, but those one-
cent sales tax funds can't be
applied to the maintenance
costs, only to construction
costs.
Martin directed staff to con-
tinue negotiations.

Bus riders critique route changes


Venice Mel's Diner closes


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

A pattern of concerns
emerged from public
town hall-style meetings
Sarasota County Area
Transit has held regard-
ing proposed changes to
county bus routes.
The issues of getting
to work, connecting to
other routes and the fre-
quency of stops along
routes were discussed at
a meeting held recently
at the North Port Library,
and a meeting in Sara-
sota the night before.
The six who attended
the North Port meeting
brought up another
concern: how to get to
Sarasota-Bradenton
International Airport
without paying an
excessive fare.
The elimination of four
bus routes and the addi-
tion of two others, among
the major changes an-
nounced in early August,
prompted the SCAT
meetings. The changes
are expected to be imple-
mented in late October or
November.
Route 19 (North Port
via U.S. 41), Route 21
(also known as the
Englewood Loop), Route
24 (Scenic-Woodmere/
South Venice), and Route
25 (Bird Bay/Venice) will
be eliminated. Route 16
(Englewood) trips will
increase in frequency
from every two hours to
one, as will Route 9 trips.
North Port bus pas-
sengers stand to gain
from bus route changes.
Sunday service will
come to North Port for
the first time with Route
9S, which will connect at
the Jacaranda Boulevard
Walmart to Route 1713
(U.S. 41 to SouthVenice).
The route will run hourly
from 10:44 a.m. to 6:44
p.m. and travel on U.S. 41
to Sumter Boulevard.
During the meeting,
Sarah Blanchard, SCAT
senior planner, and
Philip Lieberman, transit
planner, were told of one-
way trips from North Port
to the airport that can


cost from $35 to $100.
Stranded
After the meeting,
North Port residents
Bob Kornick and Diane
Paglia each said they are
interested in access to
the airport.
Kornick said he
recently moved to the
city and is trying to find
a way to the airport that
is less cumbersome. He
also suggested there
should be better direc-
tions to locations at a
central site, such as city
hall, for those seeking to
use the bus system.
Paglia said she has
friends to take her to the
airport, but there are
times when they are not
available. On one occa-
sion, she said, "the air-
line ticket was less than
what it cost me to ... get
to the airport."
Paglia also told of
being excused from jury
duty because there was
no way she could travel
by bus and reach the
county courthouse in
Sarasota on time.
Joe Dumbolton said
he was a daily bus pas-
senger until he lost his
job. Of the changes, he
said, "Some are good;
some aren't."
He said the hourly
stops in North Port were
a positive, but stated his


concern about making
connections.
"(It) may leave people
stranded in Walmart," he
said of the stop at the
Walmart at Jacaranda in
South Venice. "You might
lose people or make it
where they can't get to
their jobs."
Roy Dietrich of North
Port is a patron of the
YMCA in Venice. He
appeared cautiously opti-
mistic about the route
changes.
"I feel it might be a lit-
tle better. I'll see how it
works out," he said.
Dietrich said he hopes
a planned express bus
route will be available to
get him to downtown
Sarasota.
A $1 million grant from
the U.S. Department of
Transportation will be
used to advance the
Sarasota North-South
Corridor Bus Rapid Tran-
sit project, expected to
cost $80 million to $100
million. The project will
be funded jointly by the
Florida Department of
Transportation and the
county.
Details of the project
have not been present-
ed to Sarasota County
commissioners for their
approval.

Officials at the U.S. Wildlife Service
are considering federal protections for
gopher tortoises in Florida.
Wild Law representing Save Our
Big Scrub and Wild South, two Florida-
based environmental groups filed a
petition with the federal agency sug-
gesting that gopher tortoises need pro-
tections in their eastern range. Florida
is home to most of the tortoises in its
eastern range.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Commission deems gopher tortoises a
"threatened species." Information about
them and state protections can be found
on the Web at http://myfwc.com.
Florida prohibits anyone from tak-
ing, harassing, capturing, transporting
or selling any gopher tortoise or their
eggs. State law also protects gopher tor-
toise burrows from being molested,
damaged, or otherwise destroyed with-


timers, found themselves without work
with the closure, but Karp gave assur-
ances all would be paid this Friday. He
confirmed the restaurant will not
reopen.
On the front door of the Venice loca-
tion is affixed a writ of possession notice
issued by the state of Florida on Sept. 18
to 1763 Tamiami Corp., Mels-Venice
Inc., Creative Restaurants Management
Co. and Chris J. Chrasjkarakstais.
The company has five Mel's Diners
operating between Cape Coral and

closed a year ago, said Karp.


out a state-issued permit.
A 2006 state report on gopher tor-
toises noted a "significant decline" in
both population and habitat in recent
years.
Gopher tortoises are already fed-
erally protected in their western
range which includes Alabama,
Southern Mississippi and South-
eastern Louisiana.
The Wild Law petition proved to be
scientifically based enough to merit
review, Wildlife Service spokesman
Chuck Underwood said.
Federal wildlife officials will now
undertake a more detailed review of
the gopher tortoises in their eastern
range to determine whether they
should be added to the federal list of
endangered and threatened wildlife
and plants.
A decision should be reached in
about a year, they said.

SMH exec: North Port ER off to 'great start'


BY ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER


The Sarasota Memori-
al Hospital Emergency
Room and Health Care
Center, North Port's only
emergency room, was a
prominent topic Mon-
day during the monthly
meeting of the Sarasota
County Public Hospital
Board.
"It's been a great start,"
SMH Chief Operating
Officer Michael Harring-
ton said of the $20 mil-
lion project. "We're just
happy that the people of
North Port and South
County and that area
of Charlotte recognize
that we want to be part of
their community, and
that we can bring valu-
able clinical care.
Both North Port ER
site administrator David
Carter and Dr. Bill Col-
gate, medical director of
SMH emergency ser-
vices, thanked the board
for its role in creating the
North Port facility. They
also acknowledged North
Port residents.
"The support we have
received in North Port
has been, in a word, phe-
nomenal," Carter said.
The free-standing ER,
located in the North Port
Medical Plaza, off Toledo
Blade Boulevard, opened
Sept. 1. Among the early
returns:
Patient count is 50-
55 per day with a single-
day high of 65, hospital
spokeswoman Kim Sav-
age said. That's two to
three times what hospi-
tal officials anticipated.
Staff has been "some-
what overrun by vol-
ume," Colgate said.
Providing outpa-
tient services is a large
part of SMH's mission,
and the North Port
Medical Plaza is no
exception. The physical
therapy department is
booked three days a
week, Carter said. Offi-
cials are looking to fill a
fourth day and, eventu-
ally, five.
SMH employs 38
people at the ER, most
of whom live in North
Port. One-third are SMH
employees who trans-
ferred there; one third
switched from other
area health-care com-
panies and one-third
were previously unem-
ployed, Carter said.
"They have taken a lot
of ownership because
they have seen it (grow)
right from its infancy,"
Colgate said of the
staff.
Carter said that, "to
no surprise," some 20-
30 percent of North Port
ER patients are children.
"The concentration of
pediatric population is
very high here," Carter
told the board.
Opening the facility
allows North Port Fire
Rescue and other area
EMS units to spend less
time out of service,
Colgate said.
Paramedics, who pre-
viously were out of ser-
vice 60 to 90 minutes
while taking patients to
ERs outside North Port,
now are out of service
only 30 minutes, he
said. "The paramedics
are able to respond to
a scene much more
rapidly."
"As soon as the para-
medics put the equip-
ment back in the unit,
we are ready to roll
again," North Port Fire
Chief Bill Taaffe said in
a Monday telephone
interview.
The North Port facili-
ty is one of only four or
five freestanding ERs in
the state, Colgate said.
Technology allows staff
in North Port to access a
patient's records at other


SMH facilities, which
provides for "better care,
safer care and can even
contain costs." When


electronic records show
results of recent tests
done elsewhere, they
may not have to be
repeated at the ER.
Like the main SMH ER
in Sarasota, the North
Port ER offers a guaran-
tee that patients will be
seen by a physician in 30
minutes or sooner.

"We struggle a little bit,
with that increased vol-
ume," Colgate said of the
North Port ER. "But the
same 30-minute guaran-
tee stands."
Colgate said that 76
percent of the last 260,000
patients who went to the
SMH ER were seen by a
physician within 30 min-


utes. "Seventy-six percent
is not as good as we'd like
it to be," he said.
North Port ER patients
who need to be hospital-
ized can be transferred to
other area medical cen-
ters. Many North Port
residents have physi-
cians who are based in
Charlotte County.

County picks owner's rep for stadium project


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County and
International Facilities
Group are preparing for
negotiations after IFG
was selected as Sarasota's
owner's representative
for the $31.2 million ren-
ovation project at Ed


Smith Stadium.
Stadium project man-
ager Carolyn Eastwood,
general manager of
county Public Works,
said Monday the county
usually creates a small
negotiating team of staff
members familiar with
the project. After they
agreeing on a contract it


usually undergoes scruti-
ny by the various county
departments.
The situation regard-
ing the stadium and the
partnership with the
Baltimore Orioles may
call for a change in pro-
cedure, with a member
of the legal staff appoint-
ed to the team. Eastwood


said she expects to serve
on the team.
Negotiations should
focus on the scope of
the work for the spring
training facility and the
accompanying fee. In
its bid, IFG estimates its
services in a range of
$450,000 to $604,644.
Hourly rates range from


$124 to $200 an hour,
depending on personnel.
When negotiations are
completed, a copy of the
contract will be submit-
ted to the county com-
mission for approval.
Meanwhile, a second
county review commit-
tee was scheduled to
hear oral presentations

Tuesday from three com-
panies that have submit-
ted proposals for archi-
tectural and engineering
services.
The review committee
will reconvene at 8 a.m.
Wednesday to discuss
and score the proposals.
Eight companies sub-
mitted proposals for
architectural and engi-
neering services, accord-
ing to Eastwood. Of
those, BMK/DLR Group,
David M. Schwarz/Hoyt
Architects and Populous
were asked to return to
give an oral presenta-
tion.
Experience counts
On Friday, a staff
review committee chose
IFG after it ranked 10
companies vying for the
position of owner's rep-
resentative. The county
has experience in over-
seeing projects, accord-
ing to staff, but wanted
an expert in sports,
especially in Major
League Baseball and sta-
dium renovation, as it
partners with the Balti-
more Orioles.
IFG was ranked first
with a total of 88 points.
Fawley/Bryant was sec-
ond with 79 points and
URS Corp. was third with
72 points.
Commissioners have
expressed a preference
for using local businesses
for county projects.
Originally, IFG's proposal
listed only project engi-
neer Lee-En Chung as
located in Sarasota.
During the oral presen-
tation, according to
Eastwood, project execu-
tive Kevin Greene said he
currently is looking for a
home in Longboat Key.
Greene will be the on-
site manager, a job that
had been listed as open
in the IFG proposal.
Still, the majority of
key IFG personnel are
located out of the state.
Eastwood said it is IFG's
experience as an owner's
representative that gar-
nered committee sup-
port.
"During the interview,
it was evident they did
have quite a bit of experi-
ence," Eastwood said.
"They have a lot of expe-
rience with cities, coun-
ties and municipalities,
in general."
In the presentation by
IFG representatives, she
said, they gave advice to
the county as to possible
pitfalls during negotia-
tions with others, includ-
ing the architect.
An emphasis on keep-
ing to a timeline also
was persuasive, she
said, because the coun-
ty hopes to have the
project started by April
2010. The overall pro-
ject deadline is late
2010.
"(The time) is very
condensed for a project
of this magnitude," she
said.
Sarasota County and
the Baltimore organiza-
tion signed a memoran-
dum of understanding
in July that brought the
team to Sarasota for
2010 spring training.
The terms of the 30-
year deal between the
county and the Orioles
include the renovation
and expansion of Ed
Smith Stadium and
Major League Baseball
areas at Twin Lakes Park.
The stadium, owned by
the city of Sarasota, will
be conveyed to the
county for a token
amount.
The renovation pro-
ject, including the fees
for both county and
Baltimore owners' rep-
resentatives and the


architect's fee, is limited
to $31.2 million. The
Orioles have agreed to
fund cost overruns.

Veranda Inn is back in business


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

The new Veranda Inn, 625
South Tamiami Trail on the
island, opened Wednesday at 3
p.m.
"Everything is new car-
pets, beds, linens, paint," said
Peter Marino, senior president,
Paramount Hotel Group of
New Jersey, managing agents
for the owner, Peninsula Bank
of Sarasota.
Pam Wilkerson is managing
the hotel. Marino has rehired
former employees for the front
desk, housekeeping and laun-
dry. Describing the Veranda as


quaint, homey and located in a
good area, Marino is touting it
as a very nice investment
property.
In mid-July the hotel and the
Days Inn, 1710 South Tamiami
Trail, both owned by the LeBlanc
family's Best Southwestern Mo-
tels Inc., closed suddenly. The
remaining property in the
group, Holiday House, 455
North U.S. 41 Bypass, continues
to operate.
Paramount specializes tak-
ing control of businesses for
owners, then fixing and build-
ing them up. As the Veranda
opened, Marino was meeting
with local contractors who did


the renovations and arranging
for them to do even more work
at the Days Inn.
"It needs much more reno-
vating, so I guess it will be par-
tially opened by Nov. 1," said
Marino.
Veranda's opening is good
news for tenant Sue Laskowski,
who manages the Kingfish
Cafe for her son. She contin-
ued providing breakfast, lunch
and dinner for local customers
and now looks forward to serv-
ing hotel guests.
Marino was delighted there
were four reservations for the
opening night.

TIM PARADISE
REAL ESTATE COLUMNIST


This country has become a
buyer's world. Consumer con-
fidence has drastically im-
proved of late, whether from
the government's first-time
homebuyer incentive, the
Cash For Clunkers program or
other stimulus packages
reaching high gear. Cautious
optimism seams to prevail and
economic recovery now may
be under way or at least be
on the immediate horizon.
The first-time homebuyer
incentive will likely be extend-
ed or expanded soon. As an
additional buyer power bonus,
interest rates on mortgages
have unexpectedly dropped
again and are hovering just
above 5 percent.
Buyers are journeying into a
Venice-area real estate market
that is offering the most-
affordable home prices in at
least a decade. The new low-
priced housing reality means
many buyers can own a home
for less than it currently costs
them to rent one.
To qualify for the first-timer
$8,000 tax credit under the
present conditions you must
close on the home by the end
of November of this year. In
some situations, you may
incorporate the credit as a
down payment by utilizing the
state's advance funds through
the Florida Homebuyer Op-
portunity Program adminis-
tered by the Sarasota County
Office of Housing and Com-
munity Development.
This local consumer help
agency takes applications and


distributes material outlining
the entire program and can be
reached at 111 Orange Ave.,
Sarasota, or 951-3648. You also
may start the process and gain
an assist by contacting your
local participating mortgage
lender and Realtor.
As I see it, a broad-based
expansion is the most impor-
tant potential change in the
federal first-time homebuyer
program and the one that
would have the most-direct
positive impact on the Venice
area.
Our older demographics
and the many second home/
vacation-home shoppers here
would provide an incentive to
extend and expand the pro-
gram to include all buyers not
just the first-timers. There is
such a bill in the halls of
Congress now.
Another proposal, though
one less likely to pass, is struc-
tured to increase the $8,000
IRS tax credit to $15,000.
Of late it has also become
considerably easier for mort-
gage-troubled homeowners to
renegotiate or modify their
existing loans. Under the fed-
eral Making Homes Affordable
program, the government is
spearheading an effort to stem
home foreclosures. This initia-
tive calls for payments of
$1,000, or more, to each home-
owner and their lender who
modifies a loan by reducing
the payment amount and
interest rate.
To implement this strategy,
some banks have had to hire
more staff to keep pace with
the demand and backlog of
loan modification paperwork.
But this can be a win-win situ-
ation, helping many mort-
gage-stressed owners avoid
foreclosure and get back on
track toward an American
dream: stress-free home own-
ership.
Tim Paradiso has held a
real estate license since 1964
and has been a Venice resident
since 1972.


Collector opens specialty knife store


'Downtown, everything's waiting ...


ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


"I have every knife for every
purpose under the sun," said
J.R. Kondisko, who with wife
Tracy has opened Ubasi Cut-
lery, 217 W Miami Ave. across
from Althea's restaurant. "Uba-
si" is the African Zulu word for
"master cutlery."
A knife and firearms collec-
tor since he was a child,
Kondisko specializes in hard-
to-get fighter tactical and cus-
tom knives. Within the store he
also has kitchen, pocket, col-
lectors and custom knives in-
cluding collector's-grade Wil-
liam Henry Studios gentle-
men's pocket knives.
A Valley Forge Military
Academy graduate, he owns a
farm in Somerset, Pa., with
horses and continues agricul-


tural work. His Army-spon-
sored relief work enabled him
to travel extensively in Africa.
As a search-and-rescue swim-
mer he jumped out of heli-
copters saving lives, and in
1997 serving in the Merchant
Marines he did two tours of
duty in Iraq.
There are no firearms in the
store, which is open 10 a.m.-5
p.m. Tuesday through Satur-
day. Call 735-7454.
Custom gifts
For a gift that is a little dif-
ferent, visit The Place Mats
Place in King Solomon's Treas-
ures, U.S. 41 Bypass.
John Byrne retired from his
own insurance business on
Long Island, N.Y, and moved
to North Port where he has his
manufacturing shop.
Customers select from the
many background designs and
various borders, then insert
photographs of their children,
wedding, anniversary, kids art
or pets. Byrne scans the pic-
tures at his booth then manu-
factures the custom placemats
at his shop. Call 770-3122.
Neighbors open store
When her husband's job
disappeared with the econo-


my and neighbor Bill Nahs
wanted to start a new business,
Lori Bo asked another neigh-
bor, Steve Sherman, if he
wanted to participate. They've
opened Poolsource, 712 South
Tamiami Trail, Osprey, next to
Simply Self Storage.
From Columbus, Ohio, Nahs
has 10 years' experience in the
pool business. Bo, from Youngs-
town, Ohio, manages the dis-
count pool and spa supply store.
They offer free water analy-
sis, pool supplies and techni-
cians performing pool clean-
ing services and soon will have
a full line of pool resurfacing
products. Store hours are 8
a.m.-6 p.m. weekdays and
Saturday mornings. Call 966-
4606.
Tip of the week
Don't throw eggshells into
the disposal. They react as
shells on the beach, retaining
their status despite being wat-
ered, hence clogging drainage
pipes. That's the advice from
Sleuth Plumbing Technology
technicians.

theme for this season's Thurs-
day evening strolls and the
Christmas walk.
Following the tremendous
success of their Christmas in
July promotion, downtown
merchants and the Venice
MainStreet promotions com-
mittee are making plans for
every Thursday evening to
offer late-night shopping on
the avenues throughout the
season.
The first stroll on Thursday,
Oct. 15, coincides with the
popular Sun Fiesta weekend.
Partnering with Venice Art
Center, outside the stores
artists will set up easels to
paint, said Kathy Crisman, co-
owner of Dick's Shoes andVMS
stroll coordinator.
Appropriately, the theme of
the second Thursday stroll, on
Nov. 19, the week before
Thanksgiving, will be to help
people in the community.

Venice Stationers, who is coor-
dinating the project, is working
with a local food bank.


"I want to start the holiday
season by helping people who
are struggling in our commu-
nity," she said.
Making it truly a communi-
ty effort, Brown is asking all
businesses to make donations
or give a portion of their sales
proceeds on the day of the
stroll to the South County
Food Pantry. This organization
is operated by volunteers in
the Venice area providing food
to needy families.
"Venice is a very generous
community and I know we will
get a lot of people coming
downtown getting into the hol-
iday spirit, supporting us with
the food bank project," said
Brown.
She hopes individual stores
will piggyback onto the theme
by holding their own in-store
events.
Realizing this Christmas is
extra special for shoppers and
families in the community,
Brown and Crissman are en-
couraging owners to decorate
stores earlier this year.
"The Venice area Garden
Club is providing decorative
Christmas trees for store dis-
plays," said Crisman.

God's Garden

God looked around his garden,
And found an empty place.
He then looked down upon the earth,
And saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you, And lifted you to rest;
God's garden must be beautiful-He always takes the best.
He knew that you were .,k ffk h,
He knew that you were in pain;
He knew you would never get well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough
And hills were hard to climb
So he closed your weary eyelids, and whispered,
"Peace be thine." It broke our hearts to lose you,


But you didn't go alone, For a part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.

We miss your joy, your laughter,
we miss you, every day

OPINION


GONDOLIER SUN EDITOR

OUR VIEW



Let the sun shine in the state capitol


O ne oddity of Florida's political
system is the requirement that
local governments conduct their
business in the bright public glare of the
Sunshine Law while the Legislature
operates in virtually pitch darkness.
That's one of the perks of making
the rules: You can write them so they
don't apply to you.
So we shouldn't be shocked when
powerful legislators are indicted for
making sweetheart deals, or when
critical amendments are quietly
tucked into weighty bills when no one
but insiders are watching closely in
the Legislature's closing hours.
It's lousy government, and it's what
happens when a public body con-
ducts business in the closet.
Sarasota Rep. Keith Fitzgerald and
Miami Sen. Dan Gelber have pro-
posed a constitutional amendment
that would throw some much-needed


light on the legislative process in Tal-
lahassee. The measure would bring
state government more in line with
what we have come to expect from all
our local governments, from citizen
advisory committees to county com-
missions.
According to Fitzgerald, the four
key provisions of the amendment
would:
Require public notice for meetings
of two or more House-Senate con-
ference committee members dis-
cussing pending legislation and require
those meetings to take place in public.
Require a three-fourths vote of the
House or Senate for approval of any
nontechnical amendment in the final
days of any session. This could prevent
legislators from piling last-minute, spe-
cial-interest doodads into a bill.
Establish a "reasonableness"
standard for judges to use when


deciding if legislative documents are
to be made public. This would pre-
vent legislators from burying docu-
ments when they please.
Require the budget to be written
in clear language that shows the
source and purpose of all funds.
Again, this could put a little meat on
bare-bones language.
The problem now, Fitzgerald said
in an op-ed column last week, is that
"it is very difficult for even the bright-
est and most dedicated legislators to
study the bills they vote on in the
waning days of the legislative session.
"This almost guarantees bad pub-
lic policy and allows those in power to
hide in bills all kinds of goodies for
their friends and allies."
Fitzgerald insists, and we agree,
that this is not a matter of partisan
politics. The proposal may come from
two Democrats, but it's clearly and


simply small "d" democratic.
"This is not an indictment of the
political party that is in charge," he
wrote. "The process itself is corrupt."
Fitzgerald and Gelber are on the
mark. The lack of transparency in the
system makes for shady public policy.
We know that, and we have set high
standards for our city and county gov-
ernments; the same openness should
prevail in the capital.
One big problem is that the
amendment needs a three-fifths vote
of the Senate and House the very
people affected before it can be put
on a statewide ballot. Does that mean
it's another pipe dream?
Maybe not, but only if citizens
demand that their legislators support
it. Then 60 percent of all voters can
decide in a referendum to make it
state law.
That would be a slam dunk.


A lasting tribute


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


Thursday night at the inau-
guration of the new Venice
Area Chamber of Commerce
Chair, Judy Lawrence, I was
asked to recount how when I
was president in 1986 we
added to the chamber build-
ing, then located along the
Intracoastal, next to the North
Bridge.
I told about what a great
community project it was and
mentioned how lucky I was to
have had Jack Meyerhoff on
my committee to keep after
the financial details. He gave
this kind of financial assis-
tance to many organizations
all over this community.
I suggested at the meeting
that maybe that building, which
is now Venice Area Beautifi-
cation Inc.'s headquarters, could
be named after Jack. Many in
attendance liked the idea.
I would hate to see us name
it after someone who has done
little for the city, like we did the
park on the corner of Tampa
Avenue and Tamiami Trail.
Jack touched so many organi-
zations, including Loveland,
Habitat, the chamber, the hos-
pital, MCC (now State College
of Florida) and many others.
On top of that, he was loved by
everyone who knew him.

Megan, the owner of Tap
and Cork, whom I wrote about
last week, has yet to hear from
the city. I ran into County Com-
missioner Shannon Staub at
the United Way kickoff lun-
cheon and she said the county
was responding to the prob-
lem. The head of the Health
Department, Bill Little, was
personally trying to see what
could be done.
In fact, he called Megan and
basically said there was noth-
ing he could do. Shannon also
mentioned that the county
does have an ombudsman,
like I had suggested the city as-
sign. I don't think that person
has called her yet.
Talking with Megan, she
said the county had likely done
all it could, (although I think it
could have contacted the city);
she really felt the city was the
one letting her down. Please,
someone have the guts to do
something.

It is sad to see the libraries'
hours contracting because of
the budget pinch. Certainly
tough decisions have to be
made on where to cut costs
and what to keep open and


what to close, yet one thing
that is free to those who can't
afford much or are a part of the
10 percent unemployed is the
library.
I hope we find an innovative
way to keep these open longer.
Maybe we could do it by mak-
ing a broader use of the
Friends groups that are so
active in our libraries and in a
time of need could somehow
be of more help.


By's Crack. It is that time
of year many organizations
are changing leaders; one
said he feels very good,
about like the Avon lady
who first called on Tammy
Faye Bakker.


Today's Ism: Reality is one
of the leading causes of stress.

Last week I mentioned the
council members would not
support the city attorney in the
Sunshine lawsuit. While that
was true in the council meet-
ing, a couple of them, led by
Mayor Ed Martin, said after
the meeting and the next day
they would do whatever was
necessary, including testifying.
In the council meeting, Sue
Lang (in her usual negative
manner) had vehemently said
she did not want to be involved.
That probably tainted the city
attorney's approach so that he
did not call any of them.

The Venice Area Board of
Realtors affiliates had a chili
cook-off at the Venice Com-
munity Center two weeks ago.
It was alot of fun, especiallyfor
Bob Strayer's surveying group,
which won most of the prizes
for best and hottest chili.
I am a little partial when it
comes to chili. My wife's chili,
which is a family hand-me-
down, is really good. So we en-
tered it in the event. The only
problem was, we ran out.
I am going to share this
family secret. I did this once
before with a Harbor Lights
recipe and left out an ingredi-
ent. Let's hope I get them all.
1 onion diced, and 1/3
green pepper
1 pound of hamburger
1 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp. pepper, 1
tsp. chili powder, 1/4 tsp. garlic
salt and 1 tsp. of sugar.
2 tomatoes and 1 can of
tomato sauce
Cook for one hour covered.
Add one can of kidney beans
with the juice.
Add a small amount of spa-
ghetti (optional), heat five
minutes and serve.
By the way, the fundraiser
netted more than $2,500 for
scholarships.

Problem No. 2 at the beach

Appalling. Since animal fecal matter pollutes our beaches,
why on earth do we allow dogs to continue to poop on them? I
have seen it with my own eyes a big dog doing it right on the
shoreline and the waves washing it right out to sea. And there
were even people right there in the water swimming. How do you
scoop pee? Would we allow naked, unpotty-trained toddlers to
run around and just go any time nature called? We'd be appalled.


Re: format. I'm calling to
complain about the items that
are in Let'em Have It and
Letters from our readers. Just
remember, this newspaper is
not only for the city of Venice,
it's for the whole county. So, if
you keep putting things in
about Venice, Venice, Venice -
city stuff I'm not going to
take the newspaper anymore.
Right now one of the biggest
issues is health prices, our
economy. I'm so sick of hear-
ing about the airport and the
Venice leaders. Change your
format, please.
EDITOR'S NOTE: We print
almost all the letters and calls we
receive. If they seem to be dispro-
portionately about Venice, then
that's what's on the mind of the
people who write or call.
Shoot him. I would abso-
lutely place cameras in chal-
lenged children's classrooms.
You see what is happening on
The Legacy Trail now. Boy, it
didn't take long, did it? Some
creep exposing himself to
women. I hate to say it as a
woman, I wouldn't walk along
there. Never have and never
will. Women, where are your
cameras? Take a picture of this
creep. Take it quick.
Cut it out. I was in a restau-
rant the other day and hap-
pened to sit next to a gentle-
man who was on the cell
phone telling a friend all about
the gory details of his surgery. I
had to sit and listen to all of
these things. I think they
should be asked to step out-
side and make their calls.


Let 'em


Have It


Bad neighbors. A certain
apartment complex has been
shown in the Venice Gondolier
Sun Best of Venice Contest.
However, the behavior of some
of its residents is far from the
best by any measure. I am
referring to the noise polluting,
child-like men who may never
grow up and behave like
responsible citizens. The driver
of the charcoal gray pickup
truck with the oversize tires,
oversized exhaust tail pipe and
ineffectively mufflered engine
who arrives at all times of the
day and night, racing the loud,
unmufflered engine. The dri-
ver of the red compact whose
ineffectively mufflered engine
sounds like a loud motorboat.
The dangerous driver of the
black compact who performs
180-degree spinouts when
arriving at the entrance of the


parking lot. The driver of the
motorcycle who must enjoy
waking his neighbors at all
hours of the day and night by
racing the loud unmufflered
engine on departure and
arrival. And the drunken loud-
mouth who arrives after the
bar closes at 2 a.m., whooping
and hollering and giving idiots
a bad name.
Undoubtedly some ballot-
box stuffing took place in this
contest. Where the rental
agents find these tenants is a
mystery.
Delete. Help! Somebody
take away their computers. We
can't afford their e-mails. City
council is certainly not inter-
ested in taxpayers, only their
own selfish agendas. What can
be done to get rid of them?
Help!
Now what? Now that
Kmart is closing, I'd like to
know what's happening with
Jacaranda Plaza. The place is
an eyesore. I thought when the
new owners took it over they
were going to improve it.
Needs direction. Just read
the call "That's the ticket," and
I'm really amazed that Center
Road is not considered part of
Venice. Could I please find out
where the boundaries of
Venice are? Would you print a
map in your paper? Center
Road is not in Venice? Give me
a break.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Going south
on the bypass the city limits end
on the eastern side when you
pass Gulf Coast Boulevard.
Nothing along Center Road is
within the city limits.
Failing. "I give an "F" to the
current city council.
Cost conscious. I give the
city council an "E" They have
achieved nothing in this town
except costing us a lot of
money. Thank you for doing a

B-I1 or C-IH



that is the question


HUGH LAUBIS
GUEST COLUMNIST

EDITOR'S NOTE: A refer-
ence to Golden Beach in
part 1 in the Sept. 19 edi-
tion should have been to
Gulf Shores.

So, if the issue is not
which planes can land,
then what harm is it to be
a "C" classification? The
harm is that being a "C"
pushes our airport safety
boundaries, as defined
by the Federal Aviation
Administration, out into
regularly used local ar-
eas, shuts down some
common use areas and
opens the door for even
more ambition to grow
the airport.
Today, using current
FAA B-II standards, all
the requirements have
no effect on Gulf Shores
or the IntarcoastalWater-
way and only barely
affect Harbor Drive and
the access road to the
commonly used airport
fairgrounds. The runway
toward the Circus Bridge
already has deviations
and limitations. These
other deviations can eas-
ily be requested of the
FAA and waiver is almost
assured.
However, that is for a
B-II classification and
not a C-II.
That being the case,
how did we get to be a
"C" with "B" boundaries
in the first place? There
are two answers to this
question: mismanage-
ment and a change in
FAA standards for the
classifications. Here is
how that happened.
The 500 minimum
takeoffs and landings
standard was imple-
mented by the FAA after
the Venice Municipal
Airport 2000 master plan,
which was actually done
over a period prior to
some late 1999 FAA
instructional advisories.
Thus, for that plan the
city identified a single
simplistic "based-air-
craft," a Gulfstream II
- as the "most demand-
ing regular user." With no
actual count require-
ment by the FAA, it was
left to the city to "plan"
for whatever the people
in positions of city ad-
ministrative power want-
ed.


In its early stages, the
2000 plan was initially
developed as a "B" in
accord with the 1975 and
1986 plans and regula-
tions. It was changed by
some creative subjective
ambition so late in the
process that the Master
Plan drawing has always
had conflicting "B" and
"C" dimensions required,
but not noticed, by FAA
at that time.
Besides that, the 2000
Master Plan creators
failed to justify their posi-
tion or request from the
FAA any "C" deviations or
modifications to defined
standards as depicted on
the plan. Since that time
the FAA has come up
with even more stringent
dimension requirements
for both "B" and "C" clas-
sifications, which by defi-
nition make all the previ-
ous master plan C-II des-
ignations invalid anyway.
The devil is always in
the details, and if you
take the time to study the
maps and footage re-
quirements for all the
runways and zones as I
have, you will see that by
today's FAA standards, a
C-II designation will
potentially remove hous-
es and close off current
Harbor Drive access be-
yond the airport.
However, the current
airport, with minor ex-
ceptions, will fit into the
current FAA B- require-
ments. I never found any
evidence of someone of-
ficially requesting shorter
runways, although it was
reported so in the media
at that time.
The recently trashed
plan put together by
MEA consultants com-
monly referred to as the
2006-07 plan, made
some speculation with-
out any data beyond a
20-day sample that VNC
has more than 500 "C"
takeoffs and landings
annually. It concluded
and recommended that
we should continue as a
C-II needing a minimum
of 5,300 feet of runway,
more than we have now.
No wonder the prior
council did not act before
it left and the new coun-
cil rejected the work
effort and was willing to
start over.
The current consul-
tant group, DY, is expect-
ed to shortly deliver its
findings and recommen-
dation.
There are factions of
both individuals and or-
ganizations who still be-
lieve that big is better and
wish to grow the airport
for what can only be per-
sonal financial gain. They
want a C-II.


Alternatively, there are
those of us residents who
wish nothing more than
to maintain the airport
within its current B-II
capabilities. We believe it
should be contained
within its current bound-
aries and safe zones and
not further jeopardize
currently unaffected ar-
eas.
We also believe it
should be maintained
and be safe for what its
classification requires,
get appropriate return on
leases and give Venice
city residents priority for
available hangar and tie-
down space.
A little known fact is
that the airport is not a
'cash cow' for the taxpay-
er, but is only run on a
break-even basis. Why in
the world would we ex-
pand under such cir-
cumstances?
While the FAA brought
up and well articulated
all the poor management
issues existing for eons at
VNC, it was not to hard
even for me, a neophyte,
to determine in my brief
investigation that our air-
port, its condition and
the leases lacked proper
management and over-
sight for many years.
Our beloved city bus-
tles largely with retirees
who came here for the
place that it is, and its
management and growth
should be catering to that
population mix. The flow
will then continue.
The future of business
survival may be many
things, but it is not in
developing the airport or
trying to make Venice an
industrial machine
based on increased air
traffic.
The current council is
also partially divided into
C-II and B-II support, but
at least with your help at
the voting booth, it will
all get flushed out and
fixed by January when
the updated Airport Mast-
er Plan is due.
Appropriate manage-
ment and citizen-based
oversight also need re-
view and structuring
during this time. Please
take time out to know the
facts.
We need to support
our mayor and council's
efforts in opposition to
FAA interference with us
running our airport as we
see fit.
There is nothing wrong
with a spirited duel with
a government entity.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS

Seeing red over going green

Editor:
In past letters to the editor I questioned why our
local governments appear to be following radical
environmental and social programs. I questioned
why Venice City Council wanted to initiate the
International Property Codes, which would bring
global zoning to Venice along with the heavy, author-
itarian enforcement procedures that go with it.
Recently I asked the Sarasota County commission-
ers why they are instituting radical environmental
procedures in county programs although there are
countless scientists who maintain that it is the normal
ebb and flow of the sun cycle and not C02 that con-
trols the warming of the planet. Well, now I know.
The cities of Venice and Sarasota along with
Sarasota County have all become paid members of a
United Nations-sponsored organization called the
International Council for Local Environmental
Initiatives, or as it prefers to be called "ICLEI-Local
Governments for Sustainability" This organization
makes it very clear that its purpose is to implement
the U.N. Agenda 21 program of "sustainable govern-
ment" by taking control of private property through
new zoning regulations and environmental laws.
ICLEI dictates policies and without public input
our officials just "get it done." That's right. We the peo-
ple don't need to know.
This organization shows the cities and counties
how to implement unconstitutional sustainability
laws and if you can believe this advises them on
how to handle public resistance and protest. The cost
of membership is only $3,500 per municipality, but
the cost to "we the people" is inestimable.


I call this tyranny.

I have seen four den-
tists in four cities (Venice,
Sanford, Sarasota and

They all have outra-
geous fees and give treat-
ment plan quotes that
include expensive clean-

whitening, implants and
cosmetic dental work -

low new-patient exams

Who said inshore

fishing is bad?

Inshore fishing has been
very good in August and
September but the number
of fishermen is down
because of the heat and
afternoon rains. Could it be
the new license, or that
many have tried at the
wrong time of the day? Try
the beach, pier or jetty
either early or late.
The king mackerel have
showed up. Trollers are hook-
ing them off the beach.
Chris from Mahi Macs
Bait and Tackle lost six big
fish, which he said were all
king mackerel, the other day
at the Venice jetty. Marvin,
my beach spotter, has seen
elongated big fish jumping
just offshore and he thinks
they were big kings.
Tarpon have been hooked
and lost to the pilings at the
Venice Municipal Pier. Even
the Spanish mackerel are
around, mainly early and late
in the day.
The mangrove snapper
fishing is still hot. The best bait
seems to be live or "Tuffies"
greenbacks. Remember, snap-
per must be at least 10 inch-
es in length and 5 is the
limit. They are definitely one
of the best-eating fish in our
area. Flounder are still being
caught off our beaches and
some are over 20 inches.
As you can read, the fish-
ing is good. Get out there and
wet a line.
Well, fellow Sheepshead-
ites, we'll talk again next
week. Support your local
independent bait and tackle

Safety, wide receiver, punt

ning back.
Take a pick of a position and
Venice's Josh Boyle is probably
associated with it.
The Indians' most versatile
player just added running back
to his resume last week against
Booker.
"He just makes plays," said
Venice coach John Peacock.
"There are kids like that. On


defense, as receiv-
er, as running
back or return
game, we can just
count on him. We
put him back
there to return
punts because we
can count on him Boyle
to catch it. He is
someone we can count on and
is a playmaker for us."
Last year, Boyle was cor-
nerback, wide receiver, punt
returned and kickoff returned.
On defense, he finished with


39 tackles, three interceptions
and 10 passes break-ups. As a
wide receiver, he had 12 catch-
es for 255 yards and three
touchdowns. He returned 14
punts for a 7.6 yard average
and seven kickoff returns for a
13.4 average.
"I've been going both ways
my whole football career,"
Boyle said. "I'm pretty much
used to it. I'm conditioned
because I have been going
both ways. It's easy."
This year, the 16-year-old
has moved to safety on defense.


He is still catching passes at
wide receiver and leads the
team with nine catches for 206
yards for an average of 22.9
yard. He has 13 rushes for 95
yards on the season.
"He knows the offense,"
Peacock said. "His football IQ
is very high. He can probably
play four or five different
positions on offense. He has
great hands and knows a lot of
the positions."

Mixed reactions in season opener


BY PERRY D. PENTZ

One coach was pleased while
the other was not as Venice
opened up the cross country
season by hosting the Venice
Invitational on Saturday at Oscar
Scherer State Park in Osprey.
The Venice boys team,
coached by Jason Potter, placed
ninth out of 27 teams with 231
points, while the Lady Indians,
coached by Brenda Clark, were
11th with 304 points.
In the boys race, Immokalee's
Argeo Cruz finished the 3.1-mile
course in 16 minutes, 10 seconds.
Naples took the team trophy with
92 points while Sarasota was sec-
ond with 98 points.
In the girls race, Community
School of Naples literally ran
away from the competition as
four of their top five finished in
the top 10 including Kathryn
Fluehl, who covered the course
in 17 minutes, 11 seconds. Her
twin sister, Ericka was second
in 17:26.
"The first meet of the season
we are just concerned about
posting a time and working on
that the rest of the year," Potter
said. "We have five guys (actual-
ly six) under 20 minutes which is
exciting for us. It was about what
I expected. Not disappointed.
I'm encouraged by it actually. I
think we set a mark now we just
take the next eight weeks to go
ahead and try to improve that."
"I would have liked to have
been in the top 10," Clark said.

Mike Marsh, Tyler Palson and
Anthony Hinsman finished in
less than 20 minutes for the
Indians.
"I'm not used to running so


far," Boyd said. "I started out
alright and had a cramp about
halfway through. It was way
harder than I thought. Practice
is leisurely but these kids mean
business. It was pretty tough.
Lot of sand so I was slipping

'Almost two minutes better

Kier, who had a goal of 19:10. "I
beat my goal so I'm happy with

it was the last half mile."
"He is not really a cross coun-
try guy," Potter said about Boyd.
"He's more of a track guy but we
asked him to come out and all of

really well. He is a talented run-
ner. I'm pleased with Jon Kier

Venice handles Northside


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


Tough serving and net play helped
the Venice capture its eighth win of the
season with a three-game sweep over St.
Petersburg Northside Christian, 25-10,
25-15, 25-18, Monday at Venice High.
The Lady Indians (8-1) had 17 aces
including six each from Autumn Duyn
and Dorothy Rahal.
"We served them off the court and
our net play was outstanding," Venice
coach Brian Wheatley said. "We hit the
ball well and high. We made some good
stops at the net. We wouldn't have able
to dig a couple of those kids if we hadn't
touched balls."
Venice's net play helped neutralize
6-foot-2 Kayla Walton and Jennica
Mullins while their serving put pres-
sure on the Lady Mustangs (6-4).
The first game started out tight as
the teams were tied at 6-6 before Venice
poured it on by outscoring Northside


Christian, 13-1, thanks to three aces by
Rahal and four kills by Duyn, who led
Venice with 14 total.
'Autumn and Emily (Daniels) contin-
ue to amaze me on the outside," said
Wheatley. "They've got a lot of different
weapons that they are starting to use.
They are seeing the court well right now."
The second game stayed tighter later
as the teams were knotted at 10-10
before the Lady Indians made their run
with the help of three straight aces by
Duyn. Leading 18-14, Venice closed out
the second game with seven straight ser-
vice points from Daniels and the power-
ful net play of middle hitter Jillian Allen,
who had kills in three of the points.
Venice needed to rally in the third
game as the Lady Mustangs went ahead
14-6 on a block by Walton. The Lady
Indians then got four points from Duyn's
powerful jump serve. Trailing 16-13,
Venice scored four consecutive points

When: 7:30 p.m., Friday, Sept. 25
Where: Powell-Davis Stadium, Venice
On the Air: Radio -The Beach 98.9 FM.
Outlook: Riverview: The Rams (2-0) are
coming off a 41-3 crushing over Port
Charlotte as the offense rushed for 337
yards. Running backs Jon Evans and
Dalton Edwards combined for 317 yards
and five touchdowns. The Rams only threw
four passes with none complete. Riverview
opened with a last second come-from-

Evans paces the offense with 394 yard
while Edwards has 181 yards.The Rams
average 316 yards rushing per game and
the defense is giving up 234 per game
including 202 on the ground.

so he was moved to safety.
"It's a lot harder but
more fun," said Boyle
about his switch. "I get
to make more tackles
and hits. You get to cover
the whole field not just
one side of the field."
For the first time since
his freshman year, Boyle
got a start at running
back in last week's game

An injury to running
back Justin Grant put
Boyle in the spotlight and
the junior came through
forVenice's running game,
which has been struggling
a little this season.
The 5-foot-10, 160-
pound junior rushed for
73 yards, including a 65-
yard touchdown run on
his sixth and final carry.

said about starting at
running back. "I was real
happy that I was finally
getting a chance since

district. The Indians (2-1), who are ranked
seventh in Class 5A, are coming off an
impressive 43-7 win over Booker. Three
players rushed for more 50 yards each
including 73 yards and a 65-yard TD run
by junior Josh Boyle in his first game.
Quarterback Trey Burton rushed for 67
yards and passed for another 106 yards.
On the season, Burton has 333 yards
rushing and 545 yards passing. Offense is
averaging 381 yards per game while
defense is allowing 296.3 per game but
only 259 over the last two games. Defense
forced five turnovers including three fum-
bles. The Indians' turnover margin is +7
with five fumble recoveries and three inter-
ceptions. It's an uphill battle for the loser
of this Class 5A-District 10 opener. No love
lost in this rivalry and Indians are getting
better each week.

he could do it," Peacock
said about Boyle at run-
ning back. "He started
getting reps at running
back three weeks ago
before our first game. He
runs hard and has good
vision. He needs a couple
of more reps to be a bet-
ter running back."
Boyle, who runs a 4.68
40-yard dash, said the long
touchdown run brought
back a lot of memories
from his freshman year.
"I probably like run-
ning the ball the most
then receiving out of the
backfield," Boyle said.
That doesn't mean he
does not like hitting on
defense.
"Some games I like
defense too," he said. 'At
safety, coming up and
making hits. I like it all."
Boyle started playing
Pop Warner at 5 years
old in Englewood then
moved to Venice at 6 or
7. He said his dad,
Rodney Boyle, got him
hooked along with his


brother, Steven Hassett.
"I've been on the
football field since I've
been in my mom's stom-
ach so it runs in my fam-
ily," Boyle said. "I have
always liked it. The
intensity of it and the
ability to hit somebody. I
like everything."
Moving into running
back wasn't an adjust-
ment for Boyle as he
already knows the plays.
Venice opens its Class
5A-District 10 schedule
against Riverview at home
this week and Boyle will
continue in the backfield.
Peacock also plans on
using Grant, who is back
from injury, and sopho-
more Danny Dillard, who
rushed for 50 yards last
week.
"I am going to use a
rotation," Peacock said.
"If someone emerges to
be head and shoulders
above the other then I
will go with them. If not,

"She runs a lot faster than that," said
Clark. "She is playing club soccer too so
we are trying to balance the training
between the two sports so she is not
overtraining."
The girls team was missing three-
year varsity runner Cynthia Melendez-
Flynn, who was out sick.
Venice's top five girls all finished in
the top 100.
"They all said the same thing. When
they got to the two mile (mark) they felt
great and when they got maybe anoth-
er half-mile into the race they just start-
ed getting really tired and fatigued.
They probably went out a little too
fast."
In the junior varsity girls, Jackie
Zosmair took seventh.

He claims Moore and
Council Members Sue
Lang, Mayor Ed Martin
and Ernie Zavodnyik, cir-
cumvented the law by
participating in two sep-
arate votes that, in the
end, resulted in reim-
bursements for private
attorney fees chalked up
during the Sunshine law-
suit filed by Sarasota res-
ident Anthony Lorenzo
in May 2008.
Moore, Council Mem-
ber John Simmonds,
Mayor Ed Martin and a
former airport board
member all named
defendants -submitted
nearly $300,000 in bills
from private attorneys


related to the Sunshine
suit, which council order-
ed the city manager and
cityattomeyto pay. Moore's
bill totaled $126,000.
Council Member Sue
Lang, also a defendant,
previously said she in-
curred approximately
$2,000 in private attor-
ney fees but didn't seek
reimbursement.
The complaint ques-
tions the motives of the
council members who, in
a three stage "manipula-
tive methodology," cir-
cumvented the "spirit
and intent of the law" for
the sole purpose of per-
sonal gain, Willson said.
It required Moore be
dropped from the law-
suit, followed by Council


"I hope to get

$126,000 (that

Moore was reim-

bursed) back into

the city coffer.

The city cannot

violate the Sun-

shine Law. Peo-

ple do that."

Former City

Council Member

Bill Willson



Member Lang agreeing
in writing not to seek
reimbursement for her


private attorney fees in
order to vote on whether
the city should pay the
attorney fees of her fel-
low council members. In
the third state, council
voted to use public funds
to pay for private attor-
ney fees incurred during
the outset of the Sun-
shine lawsuit prior to the
city agreeing to represent
all plaintiffs.
Willson said there would
be more ethics complaints
filed against the others.
"I am moving forward
preparing complaints for
the remaining culprits
now that I know they are
taking the complaints
seriously," Willson said.

TAX from Page 1 A

"I have a hunch you
are going to be back here
and next year it might
not be so easy," said
Martin during delibera-
tions.
Council Members
John Moore and Sue
Lang jumped out early in
the discussion in favor of
no millage increase, set-
ting the tone for the rest
of the evening's debate.
"We kept it the same
(over the past few years)
because of the economy.
I truly believe you don't
raise the millage rate in
the middle of an eco-
nomic recession. At least
for this year," Moore said.
Lang first recom-
mended filling the entire
$2.5 million shortfall
from the $9 million in
reserves, alleviating the
need for a tax increase.


She said the city only
needs $6.1 million in
reserves, or a three
month operating budget
- standard for many
reserves. She distributed
two pages of"underruns"
and other potential sav-
ings she would like to see
implemented totaling
more than $1 million.
They weren't offered as
amendments, but as a
plan for city administra-
tion to explore. It also
served to assuage fears of
depleting reserves to a
dangerous level.
Projected on an over-
head screen were figures
showing $11.4 million in
reserves and numerous
anticipated costs that, in
the end, showed a safety
net of $1.6 million over
the $6.1 million even
after using $2.5 million
from the reserves for this
year's budget. But that


$11.4 million figure was
from 2008. The current
reserve account only has
$9 million, and doesn't
account for the Sunshine
lawsuit that is projected
to cost the city anywhere
from almost $1 million to
more than $2 million.
Council Members
Ernie Zavodnyik and
John Simmonds were
dissenting votes on the
millage issue.
"If you don't take the
heat now," Simmonds
warned, next year's bud-
get deliberations will be
much more difficult.
"The easiest thing is to
vote 2.779 (mills), be a
hero and let you guys
sweat it out next year.
Frankly, I think it would
be irresponsible to do the
easy thing and reduce
the millage."
"If the economy does-
n't substantially improve


in the next few years,
what does that mean for
us?" asked Zavodnyik.
"Might we not consider a
slight sacrifice now so
that what we may have to
make in the future is not
that great? It seems to me
the wiser option is to try
to work out a sense of
sacrifice that is not great
now, so we can avoid a
catastrophic millage
increase next year. I real-
ize that is tough to swal-
low."
City Manager Isaac
Turner sought to pre-
serve reserves as much as
possible. After the vote
he said the city could live
with it.
Leaving the millage
right where it's at, he
said, may in affect reduce
city coffers by $1.3 mil-
lion (13 percent), but it's
a tax decrease for non-


ers and commercial
property owners.
"Council should get
credit for that," he said.
At least the issues and
their consequences were
placed on the table for
the public to see, he said
afterward.
Turner earlier elimi-
nated 12 positions that
will save the city upwards
of $525,000.
He estimated council
would face a shortfall for
next year of at least $2
million, and again in


SUN NEWSPAPERS 13A

2011-12 of $1.5 million.
Overall, the city bud-
get decreased from $67.1
million last year to $59.3
million. Most of that
drop is attributable to
fewer capital projects
that demand less rev-
enue and the retirement
of some debt bonds. The
General Fund, mostly
funded by property
taxes, will remain about
the same at $23 million.

AUTO from Page 1 A

"We have 10 grocery
bags full of stuff," Solanes
said. "We hope by
matching evidence, we'll
solve a lot more of the
auto burglaries."
Busted
About 7 p.m. Friday
night, VPD Officer Kristen
Long responded to a vehi-
cle burglary at Sharky's.
"She gave a great
description of the pickup
truck and the suspects,"
Solanes said. "Because of
that, Officer Steve Scurek
spotted the truck near
Venice Beach and pulled
it over."
Solanes said the sus-
pects had items from the
burglary in plain view,
and a witness driven to
the scene positively iden-
tified the teens.
"They were arrested,
brought in for question-


ing and their parents
were called," Solanes said.
They were later releas-
ed into the custody of
their parents.
"We're in contact with
the parents and they are
continuing to cooperate
with us," Solanes said.
Detectives estimate
they will wrap up the
case in a few days after
sifting through the evi-
dence and matching it to
previous vehicle burglary
cases.
VPD Chief Julie Wil-
liams was singing the
praises of her officers
and the teens' parents.
"It was excellent po-
lice work and outstand-
ing team work by the offi-
cers," she said. "Our hats
are off to the parents for
doing the right thing.
We're appreciative of
their cooperation and


that they realize the kids
need to be held account-
able."
Citizen warning
'All of the vehicle bur-
glaries occurred during
daylight hours and took
place because people left
stuff in plain view," So-
lanes said. "The kids
smashed car windows
because they saw some-
thing they wanted."
Many global position-
ing systems were stolen
during the burglaries.
"Don't even leave the
suction cup that holds
your GPS on the wind-
shield when you are
away from your car,"
Solanes said.
Solanes said that most
of the time it costs the
victim more to replace
the broken window than
it does to replace what


was stolen. Then there is
the aggravation of can-
celing debit and credit
cards and replacing a dri-
ver license.
"If your driver license
is stolen, then you have
the fear of knowing that
someone has your home
address," he said. "Are
you going to live in fear
or change your locks?
Again, that's probably
more expensive than what
was stolen from your car."
The moral of the story
is not to leave any valu-
ables visible in your car.
Also, make sure your car
is locked. While these
burglars did smash car
windows, Solanes said
most auto burglaries
happen to unlocked ve-
hicles.

PROBLEMS IN THE COCCYX


DR. DAN BUSCH, DR. ERENE ROMANSKI
CHIROPRACTOR
If you've been feeling pain in the lower
part of your back, you may be sitting on a
problem that can be corrected by your
doctor of chiropractic. Spinal subluxations
or misalignments in the sacrum or lower
part of your back may cause a wide range
of problems in the pelvic area. The sacrum
is a triangular bone that forms in the back
part of the pelvis and serves as the
foundation for the spine.
The problem may also be related to an


imbalance in your hip bones. The two hip
bones form the sides of the pelvis and
when they are out of balance they may
cause pain not only in the back area but in
your legs and feet. Even your tail bone, the
small triangular bone at the lower end of
the spine called the coccyx, may become
misaligned and cause problems.
Using gentle manipulative techniques
and other therapies, your doctor of
chiropractic will work to correct any
misalignments that are causing pain and
discomfort.

Some new pieces of playground equipment were recently installed at Laurel Nokomis

The playground for the children with autism at Laurel Nokomis School is partly complete
with the recent installation of about $50,000 worth of equipment. A fundraiser this Friday
should help fund equipment to complete the playground for the children.


A heart for autistic children


BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER

Rolf Zahnd, co-owner of
the Saltwater Caf6 in
Nokomis, is many things to
many people.
To those who work with the
autistic students at Laurel
Nokomis School, he is a man
with a big heart who wants to
help those children in any way
he can.
Friday, Sept. 25, from 4 to
10 p.m., his restaurant will be
the site of a fundraising party
to support the school's autism
program. There will be free ice
cream for children, raffles and
a silent auction every hour,
29-cent wings and raw oys-
ters, and live music with Gary
Lesher starting at 7 p.m. "Chef
Rolf" will donate 10 percent of
sales during that time to sup-
port new playground equip-
ment and classroom field
trips.

uals in the community

Autism
Autism spectrum dis
or autism, "is a develop
disability considered th
of a neurological condi
affecting normal brain
tion, development and
interactions," according
Easter Seals Web site, w
easterseals.com.
The site goes on to s
there is no known caus
autism, nor is there a k
singular effective
treat-
ment
for it.

'Autism affects more than 1.5
million Americans and their
families," the site said.
Laurel Nokomis School has
16 preschool through middle
school-age children with
autism. It is one of three
autism cluster sites in the
Sarasota County School
District; the other two are
Fruitville Elementary School
in Sarasota and Lamarque
Elementary School in North
Port. The school teaches chil-


g to the dren from prekindergarten
vww. through grade eight, and
many of the eighth-graders
ay help out with autism students.
e of The autism unit is divided
known, into three sections: prekinder-
garten, intermediate and mid-
dle school. Each section is
staffed with specially trained
professionals: a teacher and
full-time and part-time para-
professionals. Family mem-
bers and others volunteer to
work with the children
throughout the day.
While there is no definitive
cause or cure for autism, peo-
S ple with autism can make sig-
nificant progress through
therapy.
Deanna Nicholas, parapro-


fessional in the autism unit,
said she sees a lot of progress
made by a 7-year-old boy who
came to the school three years
ago with severe autism.
"He was so severe that he
made no eye contact with
anyone, no verbal communi-
cation and he had aggressive
behavior," Nicholas said.
"That has changed. He has
calmed down. He learned to
use sign language in Heather
Petz's class and makes eye
contact now and makes some
letter sounds," she added.
Nicholas said many of
those with autism grow up,
get jobs and some go to col-
lege. She said she knows of a
woman who was diagnosed
with autism at a young age,
was treated and is now a col-
lege professor.
Playground
Age-appropriate play-
ground equipment is key ".
to helping the autism
students, according to
Nicholas.
The students were
using the equipment
for older students,
but the young-


er ones really needed their
own size and fit. The school
recently bought and installed
about $50,000 worth of play-
ground equipment, but that is
about two-thirds of what it
needs. Money for that equip-
ment came from PTO parents,
business partners and individ-
uals in the community, said
Nicholas.
Several new pieces will
complete the playground, but
more money is needed.
"The new pieces will help
fulfill the students' sensory
needs and cause them to
interact socially with their
peers," she said.
One piece the unit is look-
ing at is a four-person seesaw,
which will force
the children
to lean
forward
and back
and
touch
and be
touched,
as well as

Board of Realtors warms up chili evening


D.J. Jeffries gets her chocolate fountain
ready for everyone to enjoy for a small
donation at the chili cookoff.


FRAN VALENCIC
SOCIAL COLUMNIST

A lot of people put some
spice in their lives at theVenice
Community Center eating
chili made by local chefs and
cooks. This fundraiser spon-
sored by the Venice Area
Board of Realtors added to its
Realtors high school
scholarship fund.
Bob Massanova, a


home inspector, wore an
old Philadelphia mummer's
costume. His glittery pink
sequins gave everybody a
laugh. The blinking beer
mug he carried completed
the outfit.
Each admission included
a vote for three favorite chilis.
When the votes were tallied,
crowd favorites were those
from the Ridell Law Group,
Strayer Surveying and SWF
Home Inspections. Winners
received certificates.
D.J. Jeffries was in charge
of a chocolate fountain. For
a small donation, people
dipped pretzels, cookies and
Rice Krispies squares into
the chocolate for a mouth-
watering treat. A live auc-
tion completed the evening.
Three cheers to everyone
involved with this event.
Kimberly Slade was at the


chili cookoff and celebrated
being recently elected district
vice president of the Women's
Council of Realtors for the
state of Florida. Bravo.
Viva Venice
Mary Moyer and Cheryl
Ann Tacy invite anyone
interested in helping with
this year's Sun Fiesta to give
them a call. Your volunteer
efforts and questions will be
addressed at 492-4784.
This year's theme is Viva
Venice. Moyer and Tacy are
chairs of the event for the
Women's Sertoma Club.
A wine-tasting sponsored
by the "other" Sertoma Club
kicks off the Sun Fiesta on
Thursday evening, Oct. 15,
downtown. For tickets to that
gala, call Sandy Raasch at
484-0968. This is at the same
time as the popular Venice


Bob Massanova stole the show with his glittery pink mummer's outfit
from Philadelphia.


Fred Lugar and Melinda
Mudge sample some of
the chili at the Strayer
Surveying table. The chili
was made by Sue Vedder
and was an award winner.


MainStreet evening stroll.
One of our best
The special person of this
week is Marlene Merkle. This
nice lady, the executive vice
president at the Venice Area
Board of Realtors, has worked
there for 27 years. At this year's
chili cookoff she was a person
who knew the answer to every
question. She managed to
help wherever help was need-
ed, always with a smile.
People who come in con-
tact with her on a regular
basis can't say enough nice
things about her. She loves
her job and looks forward to
going to work each day. She is
one of the women associated
with the Venice Area Board of
Realtors in Venice who make
this city a great place to live.

For any general merchandise item
in any given week, the market of
shoppers is very small (thin).


4.9% shopped
for women's shoes


Technological innovation and the economic
downturn has changed the way that U.S.
consumers shop. Consumers have become
more destination shoppers, making more con-
sidered purchases and doing their homework
before heading to the store. Three-quarters
of all U.S. adults read a newspaper in print or
online in the past week; over 170 million adults.
For shoppers, newspaper advertising is an
opt-in medium in an opt-out world.
95% of U.S. adults report that the recession
has impacted their shopping in some way.
76% report doing fewer shopping trips. Adults
also plan purchases more (67%). Actual
purchases continue to be predominantly made
in stores (79%) though shopping information
channels have dramatically expanded.


50 1/ of adults rank newspapers first as
the media used to help plan shopping or make
purchasing decisions in the past 7 days.
80% of newspaper readers report looking at
advertising when reading the paper.

41 O say newspapers are the medium used
most to check out ads, more than all electronic
media combined. (TV, radio, Internet)


1 77% of newspaper readers took an action
as a result of a print newspaper ad in the past
30 days. 59% clipped a coupon, 52% bought
something advertised and 45% visited a store.


0% of newspaper readers followed up a
newspaper ad online in some way 44% went
to a website after seeing a print newspaper ad
and 28% conducted an online search after
seeing a newspaper ad.


O 82/ of readers used a preprinted insert
in the past 30 days. On average, adults keep
inserts 4.4 days. 59% used to compare prices,
55% used to compare one circular to another,
52% saved until visiting the store and 43%
used to make an unplanned purchase.

Behind the scenes

STsiting Venice Theatre a few
weeks ago, I found Patty
Avery adding details to a
gravestone in a spooky cemetery
she was painting.
The cemetery covers two walls
of the Pinkerton Theatre where
"The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"
opens Sept. 24 as the first
Generations show of the season
- the 60th season.
Mesmerized by Avery's talent at
bringing Donna Buckhalter's set
to life, I couldn't help thinking of
other sets seen at what is consid-
ered the third most important
community theater in the U.S. (of
some 10,000).
No wonder so many shows are
sell outs and so many people
choose to be volunteers more
than 1,100 active volunteers and
hundreds more occasional
helpers.
Not bad for a community of
about 19,000 residents.
Several of those volunteers had
already built a covered bridge for
the Hollow and rearranged the
Pinkerton seating for the play,
which was written by Ron
Myroup, who also will direct.
In the costume shop, Nick
Hartman was working on
costumes for that show and also
for "The Apple Tree" which opens
in the main stage area Sept. 29.
The award-winning designer
already has plans in place for
"Annie" and "Dearly Departed"
and other shows slated for late in
the Diamond Anniversary season.
So much magic happens there -
both behind the scenes and on
the stage.
For season tickets to the
finished products, call

Jazz it up in Venice this weekend


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
The Jazz Club of Saraso-
ta found a niche in Venice.
Back for the third year,
the club is hosting an even
bigger and better jazz
festival Sept. 25-26 than it
did the first two years.
Music will fill Centennial
Park from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Friday and for those who
crave still more, again on
Saturday, from 1 p.m. to
4 p.m. The performers will
be playing in and around
the gazebo. Fans are
expected to fill the sur-
rounding area with their
chairs and blankets as they
settle in for the two
concerts. No coolers.
Admission is free
because the festival is a
product of the Jazz Club's
outreach program. Jazz
Club president Gordon
Garrett refers to it as a "gift
to the community."
A grant from the Gulf
Coast Community Foun-
dation of Venice helped
fund the Venice concerts.

Friday's concert
Friday's music will be
performed by Don Riddell
and his Hep Cats with
Riddell on piano, Jim
Brenner on trombone and
flute, Sherrell McCants on
bass and Art Siegel on
drums.
Both days there will be a
booth where concert goers
can learn more about the
club and future events.
Last year the club spon-
sored in excess of 60
events throughout the
greater Sarasota and
Venice area. The club also
sponsors scholarships for
music students interested
in jazz.
A calendar of events for
the 2009-2010 season will
be available at the booth.


Saturday's program
Three popular groups
will performing during
Saturday's four-hour
concert at the Gazebo.
The Patricia Dean Trio
features Dean on drums
and vocals and Dave
Trefethen on bass, Stu
Shelton on piano.
Jim Wellen's quartet
features Wellen on tenor
sax, Charlie Prawdzik on
piano, Johnny Moore on
drums and Dominic
Mancini on bass.
Rounding out the
afternoon's entertainment
will be the JohnnyVarro
Quintet withVarro on
keyboard, Jack Fanning on
vibes, Dane Hassan on
drums, Mark Neuen-
schwander on bass and


Bob Switzer on trumpet.
In addition to the
foundation grant, support
for the festival was
provided by Bella Luna
Cafe and the Caribbean
Sno Ball Company.

Second chance
At the end of October,
jazz fans hope to finally
enjoy their Labor Day
weekend festival which
was postponed at the last
minute because the
opening of the new
Holiday Inn Airport in
Sarasota was delayed.
Located at 8009 E. 15th St.,
north of the airport, it
failed to get its certificate
of occupancy in time for
the weekend festival.
Ticket prices and


performers remain the
same. Those with or
without tickets should


contact the Sarasota Jazz
Club at 941-366-1552
about the new dates and to


check again before going
to make sure there are no
additional delays.

Legend comes alive


at Venice Theatre


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Written and directed by
Ron Myroup, "The
Legend of Sleepy Hollow"
promises to be a stunning
Generations production
at Venice Theatre. It will
play Sept. 24-Oct. 11 in
the Yvonne T. Pinkerton
Theatre.
"This is the first time
that the writer has gotten
to direct his show,"
Myroup said.
Myroup was charged
with creating a play
closely based on the
famous legend Head-
less horseman and all.
"My headless horse-
man is real," Myroup
said.
Myroup did his
research by seeing most
of the existing theatrical
variations on the story.
His play relates the
background of one of the
spookiest characters in
literature and, since it is a
family show, brings it to a
happy conclusion, solves
the ages-old mystery and
even reunites the horse-
man with his head. And
he did it in time to kick

off the Halloween season
in grand style.
Set designer Donna
Buckhalter and Patti
Avery have transformed
the Pinkerton into a place
worthy of legends, with
secret places, a covered
bridge and of course a
graveyard with mau-
soleum. Using swimming
pool noodles, cardboard
tubes and other odds and
ends, Buckhalter fash-
ioned a spooky tree while
a team of volunteers


created a rock wall and a
covered bridge. The
audience will enter the
theater's version of Sleepy
Hollow through the
covered bridge.
Venice Theatre is at 140
W. Tampa Ave., on the
island in downtown
Venice. Tickets for "The
Legend of Sleepy Hollow"
are $15 for adults and $10
for students in grades
K- 12. Visit www.venice

"Octomusikfeste" at 7
p.m. Oct. 1. in the

The three separate

That Twain was such a

still more to the humor

Adam as a man who, if

Golden Apple rolls back the clock


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Change is in the wind
at Sarasota's Golden
Apple Dinner Theatre.
Back in the days
when the Apple also had
a venue in Venice at the
old Holiday Inn (now
Holiday House), farce
ruled. Nearly very
production on the
Venice stage was either
a classic British farce or
perhaps a murder
mystery with a little
mayhem as a side dish.
When the Venice
location closed because
of ownership and other
changes at the inn,
some fine comedic
actors were left one
venue and many farces
short.
This season, Apple
Producer Robert Ennis
Turoff is doing some-
thing about that.

opening the 39th fall
season with two farces
and over the Christmas
holidays, he is offering
something extra special
- "Sister's Christmas
Catechism," followed by
a New Year's special
treat featuring Oscar
Award-winning compos-
er and pianist Dick
Hyman with Broadway
star Bill Hayes in
concert.
The farces. "Run For
Your Wife" and its
sequel, "Caught in the
Net" will run in rotating
repertory at the theater
from Oct. 6-Nov. 29.
Those who enjoyed the
performance of radio
performer Cliff Roles as
the taxi driver with two
wives in the Venice
Theatre production of
"Run For Your Wife" two
seasons ago will enjoy
seeing him this time
around as Stanley
Gardner, the upstairs


neighbor.
Written by Ray
Cooney, the sequel
offers even more
challenges to the
bigamist taxi driver with
two happy families in
two different parts of
London when the
children meet on the
internet and then want
to meet in person. Why
wouldn't they want to
meet they have so
much in common,
including the same
surname and a taxi-
driving dad.
"Run For Your Wife"
opens first and the
sequel opens Oct. 13.
Continuing the Late
Nite Catechism series
that was extended
several times during the
summer season, the
Apple will offer "Sister's
Christmas Catechism"
to patrons for the
winter holidays. Like
the summer Catechism


classes, this one
involves lots of audi-
ence participation and
is nearly as much
improve as it is scripted.
Sister plays from
Dec. 1-27.
Two days later, Dec.
29, Hyman and Hayes
will ring in the New Year
as only two such talent-
ed performers could.
Hayes, who has sold 4
million records while
starring on TV and on
Broadway, will be
accompanied on piano
by Dick Hyman of
Venice. Hyman, who
won the Oscar for the
film score of "Moon-
struck" has recorded


more than 100 albums,
composed the music for
more than 15 Woody
Allen films. Hyman,
who lives in Venice, is
considered one of the
world's leading jazz
musicians. He will
present two programs
on "100 years of Jazz
History" at the Naples
Philharmonic Center in
January and February.
Hayes is perhaps best
known for his many
years on "Days of Our
Lives," the TV soap
opera and for his 1955

Professional make-up adds to pirate fun


PROVIDED BY THE
WALT DISNEY COMPANY
Halloween is coming
early to Walt Disney World
Resort and is sticking
around for a night beyond
the traditional Oct. 31. On
24 evenings between Sept.
4 and Nov. 1, Magic
Kingdom will be alive with
friendly ghosts and
goblins during Mickey's
Not-So-Scary Halloween
Party.
It's an occasion when
guests of all ages are
encouraged to dress up in
their own favorite Hal-
loween costumes ... and
even if they choose not to
masquerade, they still get
to trick-or-treat around
the Magic Kingdom
theme park, collecting
yummy candy. Special
lighting, music and
theming effects combine
to transform areas of the
park into happy haunted
hollows.

Masquerade make-up
Are the pirates real or
made-up? It will be hard
to tell when Disney make-
up experts work their
magic on visitors to
Mickey's Not-So-Scary
Halloween Party.
The Pirates League, an
outpost in Adventureland
where Walt Disney World


guests are transformed
into swashbucklers, is
already getting reservation
requests for Halloween
Party-day transformations
- and expects a lot more.
To accommodate
anticipated requests, The
Pirates League will extend
its hours of operation to
8 p.m. on Mickey's Not-
So-Scary Halloween Party
dates Sept. 25, 29, Oct.
1, 2, 6, 8, 9, 12, 13, 15, 18,
20, 22, 23, 25, 27, 29, 31
and Nov. 1. Reservations
can be arranged by calling
407-WDW-CREW (939-
2739). Based on availabili-
ty, walk-ups will be
accommodated until 7:45
p.m. on those dates but
reservations are strongly
recommended.
Each guest (ages 3-
and-up) checking in at the
plunder-filled pirate's lair
(next to the Pirates of the
Caribbean gift shop) gets
an official pirate name.
Then it's off to Muster
Station for applications of
beards and eye patches,
scarves and scars, earrings
and pirate teeth all
done with the savvy skill
of a veteran pirate who
shares his or her own tales
of sea-sailing adventures.
After the new bucca-
neers recite a sacred
pirate oath, they are

September 23 24, 2009


Let's Go! Page 14


Wheeler's Cafe is the place to go for down-home comfort food


Touting itself as the
"oldest family
restaurant in
Arcadia, established in
1929," Wheeler's Caf6
invites its patrons to
enter from its welcom-
ing front porch. The
walls of the main dining
room are decorated with
framed photographs
and newspaper clip-
pings. Seating is at
tables and a counter.
Additional tables for
smokers are provided on
a screened-in side
porch.
The feeling is one of
an old-fashioned
neighborhood gathering
place where many
customers greet each
other as they come in.
Even the menus and
placemats advertise
local businesses and
charities.
The breakfasts are the
typical offerings of
southern home cooking:
eggs, pancakes, French
toast, biscuits and
sausage gravy. Prices
range from $1.55 for an
egg sandwich to $5.25
for corned beef hash
and two eggs. From the

list of four omelets and
the possible sides of
hash browns, home fries
or grits, she ordered the
Western ($4.95): ham,
cheese, onions and
peppers with grits and a
biscuit in place of toast.
He opted for the half
biscuit and sausage
gravy ($3.25) after the
server explained that
the full order ($4.25)
had two biscuits. Strong,
hot coffee was refilled
frequently. He was
disappointed that, in
orange grove country,
his small orange juice
($1) was out of a carton.
We love eating break-
fast out, and this one
did not disappoint. Her
omelet came well done
as ordered and was
nicely seasoned. His
biscuit and gravy was
spicy and delicious. The
biscuits are delivered
frozen and baked on the


premises. They tasted
home-made, crusty on
the outside and tender
in the middle.
He could not resist
ordering the "World
Famous Chocolate
Peanut Butter Pie"
($2.50). The pie has a
graham cracker crust, a
fluffy peanut butter
layer and over that a
layer of chocolate
pudding with a whipped
topping. We shared it
and were surprised at


how good it was. The pie
comes in two other
varieties, vanilla and
butterscotch.
Among the good
values on its Friday
dinner menu, Wheeler's
offers gator tail ($8.95),
catfish ($7.25) and
whole mullet ($9.95).
Among the selections on
Saturday night are fried
chicken ($7.95) and
grilled liver and onions
($6.95). Each dinner
comes with two sides


from a list of 15 classic down-home comfort
Southern dishes. Wheel- food at very reasonable
er's is the place to go for prices.

Florida International Museum offers free day


PROVIDED BY THE FLORIDA
INTERNATIONAL MUSEUM
Florida International
Museum (FIM) at St.
Petersburg College will
participate in the fifth
annual Museum Day,
presented by Smithsonian
magazine Saturday.
A celebration of culture,
learning and the dissemi-
nation of knowledge,
Smithsonian's Museum
Day reflects the spirit of
the magazine, and
emulates the free-admis-
sion policy of the Smith-
sonian Institution's
Washington, DC-based
properties. Doors will be
open free of charge to
Smithsonian magazine
readers and Smithsonian-com
visitors at museums and
cultural institutions
nationwide.
Last year, upwards of
200,000 people attended
Museum Day, with all 50
states plus Puerto Rico
represented by more than
900 participating muse-
ums, including 84 Smith-
sonian affiliate museums.
This year, the magazine
expects to attract more
than 1,000 museum
participants.
In a New Light offers a
rare opportunity to view
many large scale works
from the Gulf Coast
Museum collection, along
with museum visitors'
favorites and hidden
treasures that have not
been on view in recent
years. Artists represented
include Theo Wujcik and
Duncan McClellan, two
Tampa Bay favorites, along
with world-renowned
names such as Salvador
Dali, Clyde Butcher,
George Inness, Miriam
Schapiro and Sam Gilliam.
The Florida International
Museum has dedicated its
entire exhibition space to


offer a cohesive look at this
collection, which typically
had rotated in the smaller
permanent galleries of the
Gulf Coast Museum.
As part of Museum Day,
FIM presents Christopher
Still speaking on "Reflect-
ing on Tampa Bay," an
artist talk in the SPC
Downtown Cultural
Center Community Room
from 11 a.m. to noon.
Patrons can learn how
Still's childhood in
Pinellas County, his
education in Philadelphia
and travels throughout
Europe have found their
way into his work. Join the
artist as he shares his
journey to interpret his
home state that he loves
so much. Before closing
its doors in January 2009,
the Gulf Coast Museum
of Art coordinated a
mid-career retrospective
of Still's work. After the
program, visit the In a
New Light exhibition to
see Still's masterful use of
color and light in his oil
painting "Self Portrait
with Robe."
