Tax committee wants a redo


Members want the city
to back off from a com-
mitment to help fund a
performing arts facility
at the new Venice High
School.
BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

The city of Venice Tax
Oversight Committee vented
Monday afternoon at its quar-
terly meeting, frustrated it has
not been able to overturn a
public vote on the planned
performance arts center at
Venice High.
"I have nothing against the
performance center," just
questioning the timing, said
member RosemaryVauzanges.
Voters approved an exten-
sion of the 1-cent sales surtax
on Nov. 6, 2007. Countywide


the vote was an overwhelming
69 percent majority, with the
performance center as the
city's primary selling point.
Committee members said
the recession has changed city
priorities and the project
shouldn't move forward on the
fast track it has been placed
on.
After the surtax vote, county
administrators determined it
could save taxpayers more
than $1 million if it took ad-
vantage of low construction
costs now. It made a unilateral
decision to move the project
up from a start date of 2015 to
next year. City council reaf-
firmed its support for the pro-
ject last week.
Not consulted
It still didn't sit well with
committee members, who say
they weren't consulted.
"If this is a rubber-stamp


committee, then I don't know
what we are doing here," said
committee member Gary Bud-
way.
It appeared to be an opin-
ion shared by all members pre-
sent, including Vauzanges,
Alice Hicks and chair Jim Leis.
All are leaders of the Venice
Taxpayers League, a citizen
watchdog group.
"The decision has already
been made," said City Man-
ager Isaac Turner.
"They chose to move it up.
The city said, no, you can't get
(the money) up front" but in
three annual payments, Turn-
er said.
He told committee mem-
bers that in his 25 years in city
government he's never seen a
public vote overturned.
"You try to honor that,"
Turner said. "We don't get to

stolen property recovered after two 16-year-olds were arrested in a

Most of the stolen property
was recovered from Faett's
house and some of the boys'
friends' houses.
"Faett is a first-time offend-
er, Tilka is not," said Venice
Police Department Detective
Ron Solanes. "Because of his
previous experience, Tilka was
smart enough not to store any


of the items at his house."
Items recovered included a

At a convocation of govern-
ments meeting Tuesday, Ven-
ice City Council formally rais-
ed objections to siting a new
jail off Knights Trail Road.
The Sarasota County Board
of County Commissioners re-
assessed its plan, considering
whether to fast track a stream-
lined project in light of a de-
clining inmate population
during an economic recession.
Despite the decline, over-
crowding persists, and the fed-
eral government has already
warned the county to take
action sooner rather than later
to ease the situation.
Commissioners could hold
off building a new jail but
move forward with a new com-
munity corrections center a
minimum-security facility -
to handle misdemeanor cases
and those awaiting trial. That
would dramatically reduce the


estimated $59 million in con-
struction costs.
Whether a community cor-
rections center is built in South
County is another matter.
County staff are planning a
charrette on the subject that
will include looking at the
Cattlemen Road/Bahia Vista
Road area, where the county
already has significant land
holdings.
Solving a problem
County consultant David
Bennett told representatives of
the county and cities of Sara-
sota, Longboat Key, Venice and
North Port that 58 percent of
the jail population is made up
of those awaiting trial who
have not been convicted of
anything.
Commissioner Nora Patter-
son called it a startling figure.
Commission Chair Jon Thax-
ton said a pretrial negotiations

Rush-hour crash


Vessel catches fire in Gulf of Mexico
BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR


SUN PHOTO BY BOB MUDGE
Police Department Sgt. Jason Adams reported that a student on
the way to school turned in front of a Corvette heading north on
U.S. 41 at the intersection of Milan during Monday morning rush
hour. The driver of the Corvette complained of minor injuries and
was taken to Venice Regional Medical Center. The student was
unhurt.


Beachgoers spotted a cloud
of smoke on the horizon off the
Jetties and Nokomis Beach
about 2 p.m. Friday. As the bil-
lowing smoke grew, it sparked
curiosity in the hearts of
tourists and perhaps fear in
those involved in the burning
boat off shore.
"I called dispatch and they
already had it," said Joe Securo,
a Nokomis Beach lifeguard.
"One of the guards from the
Jetty had seen the flames, fire
and smoke."
A40-50 foot boat caught fire
and sank in the Gulf of Mexico

Joselson case



offers lessons


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

If Steve Joselson's
case is an example, don't
expect the Education
Practices Commission to
rule quickly on whether
to revoke Diana O'Neill's
teaching license.
While an administra-
tive complaint against an
educator usually takes
about a year before a
final order is rendered, it
can take much longer.
Joselson's case drag-
ged on for more than two
years, from the first com-
plaints against him in
March 2007 until April
23, when a teacher
panel of the EPC agreed
to accept a settlement
worked out by Joselson
and the school district
revoking his teaching
certificate permanently.
Joselson's most egre-
gious conduct was chang-
ing the grades of more
than a half dozen stu-
dents without autho-
rization.
Permanently
revoked
In April 2007, VHS
Principal Candy Milling-
ton held a meeting with
Joselson and his attorney
to discuss parent and
student complaints.
On April 25, 2007,
Millington recommend-
ed to the superintendent
that Joselson be termi-
nated. He resigned effec-
tive May 24, 2007.
The original adminis-
trative complaint against
Joselson was filed Aug.
28, 2008. The settlement
agreement was reached
on Nov. 8, 2008, but it
took almost another half
year for the EPC to act on
it, making its final ruling
in April.
According to the inves-
tigation, during the 2006-
07 school year Joselson
altered the student
records of eight students
in violation of the law
and school board policy.
School officials said he
fraudulently created his
own courses, made unau-
thorized teacher assign-
ments and student sched-
ule changes and awarded
and changed grades with-
out permission.
"These changes creat-
ed multiple student record
inaccuracies impacting
students' grade point
averages, credits awarded,
graduation status, athletic
eligibility and individual
education plan compli-
ance," stated the origi-
nal EPC complaint.
No admission
According to the set-
tlement, Joselson neither
admitted nor denied the
allegations, but elected
not to contest them.
He was charged with
statutory violations in-
cluding gross immorality,
personal conduct that
seriously reduced his
effectiveness as an
employee of the school
board and violating the
principles of profession-
al conduct prescribed by
the state Board of
Education.
Administrative rule
violations included the
failure to make reason-
able efforts to protect a
student from condi-
tions harmful to learn-
ing or to the student's
mental health or safety.


He intentionally sup-
pressed or distorted
subject matter relevant
to the student's acade-
mic program, the dis-
trict charged, and sub-
mitted fraudulent infor-
mation.
It took a group of
Venice High educators
months to unravel
Joselson's activities. The
group found it even
affected one student's
record going back to the
2003-04 school year.
As of July 1, 2009,
Joselson can never again
hold a Florida educator's
certificate and he's per-
manently barred from
reapplying.

Minus students, VES program disbands


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


The Venice Elementary School
special education class led by
teacher Diana O'Neill is no more.
The classroom, which was
essentially its own program, was
cleared out after O'Neill was
charged with child abuse last year.
She was acquitted by a jury in
February and her reinstatement
was recently ordered by a hearing
officer, but when school started in
August there was no longer a pro-
gram for profoundly medically mul-
tiply-handicapped children atVES.
The class had five pupils served
by one professional, two aides and
numerous occupational and other
therapists who serve all of South
County.
The family of one student
moved out of the district, according
to school officials, while the other
four families insisted their children
be placed in another school.
With that, the teacher who
replaced O'Neill and the remain-
ing pupils were moved to Oak Park


School in Sarasota, said Scott
Ferguson, spokesman for the
Sarasota County School Board.
The aides who documented
and reported O'Neill's behavior
remain atVenice Elementary, reas-
signed to another classroom.
The VES-based specialists who
also served those same students
remained as well.
Venice Elementary still has its
own ESE program serving special
education students, although the
school enrolled 70 fewer students
this year.
License uncertain
Last month an arbitrator ruled
O'Neill should be suspended for
20 days, and reprimanded, but not
lose her job.
Superintendent Lori White
sought O'Neill's termination, but
faced with the arbitrator's binding
decision, now must find O'Neill a
similar position within the district.
Even with the arbitration deci-
sion, the matter isn't settled for
O'Neill.
Schools spokesman Scott


Ferguson said the district is current-
ly negotiating with O'Neill to find a
position that is not in a classroom.
"The plan right now is to keep
Ms. O'Neill in her current nonin-
structional position pending the
outcome of the Education Practices
Commission decision," he said.
The EPC is a self-policing
body within the Department of
Education that will rule on whether
to revoke O'Neill's teaching license.
That could take a year or longer.
Even if the state pulls O'Neill's
teaching certificate, she would still
be eligible to work in an adminis-
trative or other position held by
classified employees who do not
have regular classroom contact
with students. She currently works
in the school board's records
retention facility at her old salary
of $80,000 annually.
O'Neill's suspension, as ordered
by the arbitrator, is on the agenda of
the Sarasota County School Board's
Oct. 6 meeting. If the school board
signs off on the arbitrator's report,
which is likely, O'Neill's suspension
will begin Oct. 7 and end Nov. 3.

POLICE BEAT


Arrested for strangulation
A day after a woman was nearly
strangled, she reported the incident,
according to a Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office report.
The victim was involved in a verbal
altercation with Piet Christian Jacobs at
their home in Venice when he began
battering her. He punched
her numerous times in the
face, arms and back. Then
he grabbed her by the
S^ throat and choked her and
forced her to the ground.
With one arm around
her throat, he dragged the
victim across the yard.
Jacobs The victim bit Jacobs to
get away, things calmed
down and the victim was able to go
with Jacobs to the home they were try-
ing to move into.
While at the new address, Jacobs
again became violent forcing the victim
against the wall and choking her. He
also struck her numerous times.
Finally, out of fear, the victim agreed
to go with Jacobs to a store in the 1700
block of U.S. 41. While in the vehicle,
Jacobs continued to punch her. Back at
the house, Jacobs threatened to kill the
victim and her family if she called 9-1-

Mason, who is 96, join-

1993 when he and his
wife retired to Venice.

STAFF REPORT

Harry Mason, a longtime
volunteer counselor for
SCORE's Manasota chapter,
was honored Monday for his
years of service with special
Emeritus Member status.
This honor is reserved for
only the most dedicated vol-
unteers, SCORE officials said.
Mason, 96, joined the ranks
of Manasota SCORE in 1993
when he and his wife retired
to Venice from their home in
Haddonfield, N.J.
He had also been SCORE
volunteer there.
SCORE officials said that
Mason's counseling efforts
have benefited dozens of
entrepreneurs in the Sarasota
area, with many small busi-
nesses owing at least part of
their success story to guid-
ance and counseling they
received from him over the
years.
His involvement with
SCORE didn't stop with client
counseling, although he
admits that has been his most
rewarding activity.
"I love seeing a start-up
business go from the drawing
board to reality," he said,
recalling success stories that
range from lawn service busi-
nesses to janitorial companies
to nursing care providers.
"Especially in this econo-

entrepreneur live the
American dream," he added.
Mason's list of achieve-
ments with SCORE include
service on the executive com-
mittee and as chapter chair.
Seeing the importance of
team-building in the business
community, he also helped
establish relationships on
behalf of SCORE with local
financial institutions and
chambers of commerce.
Before retiring, Mason was
an executive with RCA in its
corporate headquarters. His
desire to stay active and play a
part in the success of the local
business community has
been a strong motivator.
"I retired the first time at
age 53 but kept going back
into the workforce because I
enjoyed it so much," he said.
SCORE, he said, gave him
the opportunity to be a part of
the business community
while enjoying his on-again,
off-again retirement.
In addition to spending
time with SCORE, Mason has
been active with the Venice
Area Chamber of Commerce,
serving on its Business
Development Committee. He
and his wife, Lucille, celebrat-
ed their 68th wedding
anniversary this year.

their shared love of fine art.

New Denny's to open in South Venice


ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


Coming back to Venice very
soon will be a Denny's restau-
rant occupying the former
Mel's Diner, 1763 South Tami-
ami Trail, which closed 12 days
ago. The former Denny's, 1681
South U.S. 41 Bypass fronting
the Jacaranda Plaza, closed
suddenly almost two years ago
and remains shuttered.
Details about the new Den-
ny's were unavailable at press
time.
Cookie store
"My cookies are like a party
in your mouth," said Carlenne
Colazzi, who has opened Car-
lenne's Cookies, 525 E. Venice
Ave., next to the Thai Bistro.
Each morning she arrives at
5 a.m. to make all her cookies
from scratch for the previous
day's call-in orders. In the store
is a large display of freshly
made cookies for eat-in and
take-out customers. Her store
has limited seating for cus-
tomers to enjoy cookies with
coffee or milk.
Cool gifts are large martini
and margarita glasses filled
with chocolate-chip, margari-
ta-lime softies. New items
include huge 16-inch choco-
late, sugar, marshmallow fluff
and chocolate Oreo-cream
cookie cakes.
Forty years ago, Colazzi
moved from Pittsburgh, Pa., to
Nokomis, and for the past 25


years she has been a teacher's
assistant at Epiphany Cathed-
ral School. Admitting that op-
ening the business is a big step
at 60, she has been encouraged
by friends.
In the future she wants to
make local deliveries and have
a Web site to start shipping
cookies online.
Carlenne's Cookies is open
10 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays. Call
480-0001.

OUR VIEW



Venice's $1.5 million political molehill


S supporters of Mayor Ed Martin
and council members Sue Lang
and John Moore pooh-poohed
the seriousness of the Sunshine Law
violations alleged against them by
Anthony Lorenzo.
The charges were politically moti-
vated, they said. The violations were
technical at most, they said. Lorenzo
and his attorneys were only in it for
the money, they said.
What do they have to say now that
Circuit Court Judge Bob Bennett has
ordered the city to pay Lorenzo's
attorneys nearly three-quarters of a
million dollars in fees and costs?
Add in the more than $500,000 the
city has paid to defense attorneys,
with bills from the fee hearing likely
still to come, and the total price tag of
this "molehill," as some have called it,
will probably be about $1.5 million.
If that's a molehill, so is Mt. Everest.
That $1.5 million is certainly
enough money to pay a good-size
chunk of the $2.5 million budget
deficit that the city dipped into
reserves to meet.


It's about two-thirds of the first in-
stallment on the city's pledge to help
fund a performing arts facility at the
newVenice High School.
It's probably enough to pave a road
or two, replace some aging water
mains or put a little sand back on the
beach.
It will, of course, do none of those
things. In fact, the vast majority of the
money will be going out of the area, so
it won't even give the city an econom-
ic boost on the rebound.
Talk about government waste.
And we aren't even counting the
money spent on resolving the Sharky's
lease issue, the short-term rental issue,
redoing the airport master plan ....
Council inherited some of those prob-
lems, but each time seemed to find a
way to make reaching a solution more
costly and time-consuming.
Because the Sunshine case settled,
Bennett, a thorough and well-re-
spected judge, was never called upon
to rule on the merits of Lorenzo's
claims. But it's a safe bet that he
wouldn't have given Lorenzo's attor-


neys almost all of what they asked for
(except a multiplier and a fee award
for arguing over fees, neither of which
was supported by Florida law) unless
he thought there was fire here, not
just smoke.
Even the city's own attorney's fee
expert characterized the e-mails at
issue as "shenanigans" not a term
you want to hear used to describe any
action by a city official.
Yes, there were also public records
law violations involved, thanks to an
absurd policy that made council
members the sole custodian of some
important documents. The city own-
ed up to those rather quickly, how-
ever, and changed its policy.
The real fight was whether there
were Sunshine Law offenses; the city
took the fall for that although, obvi-
ously, a city can only act through staff
and elected and appointed officials.
John Simmonds acknowledged vio-
lating the Sunshine Law, based on
confusing legal advice. Everyone else
continues to deny any wrongdoing.
So, have Lang, Martin and Moore


learned a $1.5 million lesson? We cer-
tainly hope these points have been
made abundantly clear to everyone:
Violations are violations. Ques-
tion the motive, background and tac-
tics of a whistleblower all you want;
you have to get out the checkbook
just the same. If a cop catches you
speeding, it's no defense to say he had
it in for you.
*You didn'tjust spend $1.5 million in
an economic downturn you blew a
lot of political capital right before an
election. The community is divided,
and this resolution of the Lorenzo suit
will only drive the wedge in further.
Council members have to be
above reproach. Yes, a seemingly
incriminating e-mail may have a per-
fectly innocent explanation, but if
you're put in the position of having to
make one, you've already lost. And
now the members of council have a
target on their backs.
It goes without saying that this is a
lawsuit that never should have been
possible. The real question now is
whether another one will be.


It's begun already


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


The council race in Venice
has started in a blaze of glory.
The four Venice Council
Candidates appeared at last
week's Tiger Bay political
forum at the Venice Yacht
Club. The questions were ones
they all would expect and the
answers, likewise, were pretty
routine.
Growth and the airport
seemed to be the hot points.
Emilio Carlesimo and Harry
Walia did not like some of the
changes to the comp plan lim-
iting height and density and
flexibility, while Jim Bennett
and Ted Koszarski did. The lat-
ter two wanted either a no-
growth or diminished airport
while the others were more
open to some limited, practi-
cal growth.
In some respects these for-
ums are really unfair as they
don't get into the nitty-gritty. In
a minute and a half or two
minutes they can't get to the
real agendas and facts.
Sometimes the questions
are too broad, like, "What is
your vision for the airport?", to
which the candidate says
something like, "I have knock-
ed on a lot of doors and lis-
tened to the people who have
told me what they expect. As a
businessman with vast experi-
ence in getting things done, to
that end I will ensure we will
have a safe airport, and won't
let the golf course or any
homes suffer. Of course, the
gopher tortoises will not be
harmed, blah, blah, blah ..."
That is nice but it isn't
telling us a lot we don't know.
What we need is something a
lot more detailed.
To that end, we are embark-
ing on a long series of articles
that the candidates will partic-
ipate in, as will you the reader,
to learn as much as possible
about the candidates and their
backgrounds. What I hope
might come from that is we
learn some specifics and, more
important, start some new
thinking: In short, we want to
find out whether each candi-
date brings us any new, useful
ideas, leadership and total
community interest.
What made me think of that
was an idea Kathy Leavitt,
from the Yacht Club, brought
me. In a section of the Boston


Globe she brought me there
was a story about a very inter-
esting program that is run to
help elder citizens (and, I am
sure, save a lot of money). The
idea is formalized by a state
law that allows towns to give
seniors (ages 60 and up) jobs
in exchange for a property-tax
credit.
A couple of examples were
given. One gentleman painted
fire hydrants, for which the
retired welder got a $500 tax
credit. The work is figured at $8
an hour, so you know the gov-
ernment is doing well on this.
A lady from Wareham is a
parking lot attendant at the
beach who verifies people that
have beach stickers. She gets a
$750 credit, the max under this
program.
Each town is a little differ-
ent: Some had established this
program before the state and
most engage 20 to 40 seniors a
year. Seems like a neat idea. I'd
guess we could find lots of can-
didates here.
It is a different idea and
there are lots of those all over
the country. Let's hope we get a
few more from these candi-
dates.

Worst-laid plans


Snookered. A few questions on the recent repair work at
Venice Inlet. Knowing that the water along the jetties is lined with
snook, why would the decision-makers choose the week before
the opening of snook fishing season to work on the jetties? And,
of course, work was not completed on time, thus extending into
fishing season. Next, why was jetty maintenance conducted dur-
ing the height of hurricane season? Why was so much limestone
rock and rubble dumped on the jetties? This will just wash into
the water with the next storm. And finally, why do we continue to
waste taxpayers' money on useless projects like this? Who plans
these stupid projects and who approves them?


Irresponsible. I'm disgust-
ed with what I'm reading in the
newspaper today about what's
happening at our elementary
school. I think that the princi-
pal did not do the principal's
job and should be fired.
Somebody needs to be held
accountable for the mistreat-
ment of our children, especial-
ly the handicapped children. I
think it's time that principal is
told to leave. She did not do
her job and we should expect
more from our principals.
Biased. As fair-minded
Gondolier Sun readers know,
the paper has been out to dis-
credit the slow-growth city
council members since their
election. Newspapers are cer-
tainly entitled to their opinion,
and it is understandable that
yours would become the
spokesman for the business
establishment that dominated
council for years and is fright-
ened by a group of outsiders
taking over. However, the
paper's advocacy increasingly
affects its reporting of the
"news." If you doubt this, come
to council and other city meet-
ings and watch council critics
regularly give copies of their
criticisms to the Gondolier Sun
reporter and see them become
the basis for the next "news"
article. Your editor recently
pointed out that citizens are


Let 'em


Have It


sharply divided about the
council. Unfortunately, the
paper has fomented this divi-
sion and in the process short-
changed its readers about the
substance of issues, like the
comprehensive plan and the
recent FAA inquiry. Fanning
controversy may sell papers,
but framing every issue as
"them versus us" doesn't get
those issues understood or
solved.
Partial credit. The grade of
city council: They have failed
to represent the entire com-
munity. They have fought
against every person or asset
that has created the environ-


ment that's beautiful here.
They have funded their own
defense by the taxpayers'
pockets and for their arro-
gance in thinking that the Sun-
shine Law is beneath them.
They have feuded with every-
thing our future generation
has asked. They have faulted
the previous city boards,
insinuating that they were con-
trolled by a small group, when
they themselves are controlled
by a small group. For all of these,
I have to give them an F-.
Charge. Why don't we start
charging some of the home-
owners and the slumlords of
the trashy yards? Why give
someone 30 days to pick up
their yards? They know what
the code is. You don't get 30
days to slow down with a traf-
fic ticket. You get a traffic ticket
for breaking the law. I think
there's a lot of money to be
made with the code enforce-
ment department if they'd just
utilize their officers. And
another thing: A lot of elderly,
well-to-do people are hanging
out at the libraries. Let's start
charging $5 a year to join the
libraries. It's still a bargain.
Where else can you get all that
for $5 a year? That would bring
in a lot of money.
Bad bikes. I haven't been
harassed by a scooter driver
lately on the sidewalk (in fact, I
haven't seen any), but the bicy-
cle riders on the sidewalks are
becoming a hazard. They're cut-
ting across traffic. You can't turn
on the lanes because they take
the right of way no matter
where they are on the sidewalk.
Number 2, are the political signs
on Business 41 atVenice Avenue
on government property? What
are the laws on that?
Seeing clearly. I renewed
my driver license online at
sarasotataxcollector.com. I
think if you need a vision test,
then you need to go to the

SCG heard

public loud

and clear


STEVE HARNER
GUEST COLUMNIST


In May, the board of
State College of Florida,
Manatee-Sarasota, ap-
proved proceeding with
an application to the
Florida Department of
Education to provide six
baccalaureate degrees
identified or requested
by community leaders as
being needed in our area.
As reported, the SCF
board recently held a
workshop to hear from
community and work-
force leaders about the
need for local access to
these identified four-year
degrees.
I wish everyone in our
area could have heard
the child-care workers,
special-needs advocates,
fire and police chiefs,
hospital administrators,
business and technology
leaders and a county
commissioner known for
her work with young chil-
dren describe how af-
fordable, local access to
more bachelor's degrees
would save money and
time for taxpayers and
companies, help workers
advance faster to higher
positions and provide
businesses with a better
labor pool.
As a citizen board ap-
pointed by the governor,
it is important that we lis-
ten. All nine SCF trustees
are residents of Manatee
County or Sarasota Coun-
ty and are charged with
representing community
needs for postsecondary
and career degree educa-
tion in a fiscally responsi-
ble manner. We take this
charge seriously.
While our core focus
continues to be quality
education at the two-
year level and maintain-
ing essential 2+2 agree-
ments with universities,
our board feels a respon-
sibility to follow the leg-
islative intent to further
expand access to work-
force baccalaureate pro-
grams that, per statute,
"shall be delivered in a
cost-effective manner that
demonstrates substantial
savings to the student
and to the state over the
cost of providing the de-
gree at a state university."
The public has spoken
at our workshop, through
extensive surveys and a
comprehensive needs as-
sessment as part of our
ongoing application pro-
cess. In behalf of our
board, I want our work-
shop guests and the
many coworkers they
represent to know we
heard them say loudly
and clearly that these
needed programs are not
available.
SCF is experiencing an
exciting transformation.
President Lars Hafner
and the SCF team have
the board's full support as
they continue to move
our college forward into a
new era.

Steve Harner is chair
of the District Board of
Trustees of State College
of Florida, Manatee-

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS

Target tourism market

Editor:
My wife and I relocated to the Venice area from the
Northeast about four years ago, and we are both
employed in shops located on Venice Avenue.
We take offense at the comments made by some citi-
zens and some city council members about the high
prices and bankers hours of the shops onVenice Avenue.
If these people did comparison shopping with other
tourist destinations in the Southwest Florida area, they
would find that Venice Avenue shop prices are either the
same or cheaper. Regarding the bankers hours, unfortu-
nately most of the shops cannot justify being open at
night because there is simply no customer support.
What this town and city council need to do is put
aside their personal agendas and start focusing on get-
tingVenice on the map as a tourist destination. We have
heard from numerous customers that they like visiting
and shopping in the avenue stores, but there is definite-
ly a lack of hotel accommodations on the island.
Instead of nitpicking about the little things, city coun-
cil should look at the big picture and embrace the idea of
a five-star hotel with conference facilities. There are def-
initely more positive aspects to this idea than negative.
When we can lure these various groups to attend
functions at a facility of this nature, they will dine and
shop our downtown venue. You can still accomplish
these things and keep the small-town quaintness of
Venice we all love.

Heart, not head,
controlled vote

Editor:
The majority of people
voted more with their
hearts than with their
heads in both the presi-
dential primaries and the
election. We wanted
change so bad that we did-
n't stop to learn more
about the person we voted
for and examine his capa-
bilities.
He was and still is an
inexperienced man who
is so determined to do
things 100 percent his
way that he is forgetting
the primary responsibili-
ties of his office. He has
either forgotten or just
does not care that as the
president he has to be
concerned for the major-
ity of citizens in this
country, not just a certain
percentage.
My message to him is
this:
"You are not the presi-
dent of the United States


of Democrats or Repub-
licans. You are the presi-
dent of the United States
of America, with the
emphasis on the word
America.' Stop thinking
about what's only good
for any particular politi-
cal party and start think-
ing about what's good for
America.
"Slow down and just
listen. Listen to the fears,
voices and concerns that
people across the coun-
try are expressing. Make
sure that what you are
pushing for is the best
thing for the majority of
American citizens. Why
does everything have to
be pushed through in the
first six months of year of
your presidency?
"It has been said that
many people listen but
do not hear. You may be
listening to us, Mr. Pres-
ident, but you are not
hearing us."

Keep the sodium
chloride handy
Editor:
In this upcoming elec-
tion we are going to hear
and read half-truths and
innuendoes about city
council and the city of
Venice 2009-10 budget. A
case in point is a recent
flyer stating, "Now the
city officials are looking
to us" to pay for their bills
"through imposing a new
tax or special assessment
on each citizen."
This is so outlandish
as to be ludicrous. There
is no special assessment
or increase in the city
budget. To say so is a
scare tactic.
In addition, we will
hear about living in har-
mony without lawsuits.
Unfortunately, some mu-
nicipal lawsuits are nec-
essary, and in the public
interest, in order to pro-
tect citizens' rights, qual-
ity of life or the environ-
ment.
As for the politically
motivated Sunshine suit
vilifying council mem-
bers overwhelmingly
elected to limit growth in
Venice, we may never
know who really incited a
Sarasota ex-felon to insti-
gate this suit.
Most of the four candi-
dates running for office
this fall have gone into
great detail as regards to
their qualifications. Mr.
Walia's Web site, however
is a bit vague. In it, he
says he is a "self-employ-
ed real estate developer."
As such, he fails to ex-
plain the educational
background he would
bring to council; which
community or govern-
ment committees he has
served on recently; what
legal and financial exper-
tise he would bring to
Seat 4; or his absence at
bimonthly council meet-
ings.
I would urge Venetians
to take whatever they read
with a grain of salt and to
remember that, "Fine
words butter no parsnips."

Problems


at the pier

Thousands of tourists and
snowbirds come to Venice
every year, and our economy
depends on them.
Venice is one of just a few
cities that is actually on the
Gulf of Mexico. Tourists visit
the Venice Municipal Pier
and Sharky's On The Pier
there. We are very fortunate
to have a free pier to visit and
fish.
Unfortunately, we have a
problem.
I'm assuming it is the city's
responsibility to control this
area. We visit the pier about
once a week in the early
evening and it is dangerous
and disgusting. Dead and
squashed bait is all over the
pier; my wife almost slipped
on some. There are also dead,
dried-out larger fish all over
the place.
When you get out to the
"T," you definitely hear some
words that you don't want
your wife or small children to
hear. Most of the offenders
are teenagers. Some of them
are only 12 to 14.
I've seen them being
dropped off by their parents.
Apparently, in some cases
the 24-hour pier has become
a babysitter or a day-care
center for some of these kids.
The police do come out
and the kids clean up their
areas, but as soon as the offi-
cers leave, things get ugly
again. It would be a shame if
the city would have to close
the pier from 10 p.m. to day-

As a sophomore, Venice's
Beckett Wales was on junior
varsity then he got his call up to
the varsity after an injury to the
starting tight end.
Since, Wales hasn't relin-
quished his position and had
transformed himself into one
of the best tight ends in the
country.
The 6-foot-4, 219 pound
senior is wreaking havoc on
opposing defenses with his
size, speed and athleticism.
"Beckett is phenomenal at
catching the ball and running


routes," said
Venice coach
John Peacock.
"He's got a lot
better blocking.
He caught two
deep balls from
the tight end spot
Wales (on Friday)
where he looks
like a wide receiver running."
Wales got his first chance to
show his skills on Nov. 2, 2007,
against North Port as he caught
his first pass a 16-yarder
from quarterback Trey Burton.
The following week, he added
four more catches for 56 yards
against Booker including an 8-


yard TD catch.
The next season, Venice had
a dilemma as Brandon
Wilkinson was returning as
tight end.
"There was no way I can sit
this kid (Wales) on the side-
line," Peacock said. "We had to
move one of them some-
where."
Wilkinson moved to defen-
sive end and Wales stayed at
tight end which he loves.
"I like the responsibility of
the tight end position," Wales
said. "Having to block like a
lineman, run like a wide receiv-
er, catch like a wide receiver
and think like a quarterback.

Venice cross country teams continue to improve


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


Just two weeks into the season, the
Venice High boys cross country keeps
improving.
The Indians placed sixth out of 18
teams in the North Port Invitational
and had five runners finish under 19
minutes on the 3.1-mile water-logged
course on Saturday at North Port High.
"Five of our six guys improved from
last week so I'm pretty excited about
that," saidVenice boys coach Jason Potter.
In the girls race, Venice grabbed
ninth place out of 16 teams with 244
points with sophomore Kelly White
leading the way in 33rd place.
"This week was a total disaster all the
way around so if we are in the top 10 I
will be happy with that," said Venice
coach Brenda Clark. "Next week it is
time to get moving."
Venice was ninth in last week's
Venice Invitational with six guys under
20 minutes.
This week was better as junior Dylan
Boyd took eighth-place overall with a
time of 17 minutes, 55 seconds. Lemon
Bay's David Tomchinsky was first in 17
minutes.
"It was great," said Boyd. "I felt really
good today. It was pretty muddy it just
kind of made it more fun for me. Last
week was my first time (racing) and
didn't know how to gauge how far 3.1
miles is. This time I paced myself a lot
better. I went out pretty fast but I kept a
good pace."
"It's just his second race," said Potter.
"Today he knew what to expect. I also
can't say enough about Jon Kier."
Venice's Jon Kier was 26th in 18:32
then the Indians had David Enander,
Anthony Hinsman and Tyler Palson


STAFF REPORT

captured four of five wins against
the host Englewood Cats on
Saturday
Over the last two weeks, the
Vikings'teams have won eight of 10
games.
The Vikings' next games are at
Cape Coral Junior FA on Oct. 3.

Danes vs. Cats (no official score)
Running back Brandon Kotti
scored on the first play of the game
for one of his two touchdowns with
quarterback Jack DeBernado mak-
ing a great block on his firstTD.
The Danes offense did a great
job working together behind the
blocks of Fred Beyers, Hayden Rose,
Ryan Barnhart, Luke Sleight, Ethan
Beck and Carson Beard.
The defense was led by a crush-
ing tackle by Hayden Rose which
caused a fumble recovered by John
Whitney Working extra hard on
defense were Tyler Bailey, Austin
Abernathy and Whitney.

Kings 27, Englewood 13
The Gold offense was led by the
running of Alec Lamadia and Ethan
Krizen. Making up the Gold offense

On another front: Are
you a Baltimore Ravens
fan? If so, the Moose
Club of Venice will have
all of the team's games

can get enough interest.
Meanwhile, the local
inshore fishing is still
good. The Venice Jetty
and the pier have been
producing snook, lady-
fish, jacks, mangrove
snapper and Spanish
mackerel. Occasionally,
they're hooking a few
king mackerel and tar-

there is a huge school of

15 miles offshore.

place with times of 18:51.50, 18:53 and
18:53.50, respectively.
In the girls, White improved her
place by three and her time by 16 sec-
onds from last week. Teammate Rosa
Canas was nearly half a minute quicker
with a time of 22:50 for 40th place.
"I got a faster time this weekend,"
said Canas. "I wanted to be in the high
21s (21 minutes) but I didn't get there
today. Hopefully I will get up there
soon. I tried to hold back at the begin-
ning and move up little by little. I was
doing that strategy OK until I got a
cramp at two miles."
"We were not prepared and that's my
fault and their times were a little slower
than I would have liked but the course
is also mushy out here from all the
rain," said Clark.
Four of the five girls did improve
their times.

Outlook: Southeast: The Seminoles (1-2) have
had two weeks to prepare for the Indians after
having last week off. Two weeks ago, Southeast lost
a heartbreaker to rival Manatee, 30-26, thanks to
two fumbles and a botched punt which led to
three touchdowns. Quarterback Dyron Speight has
thrown for 595 yards with five TDs. His favorite tar-
get is Boe Brand, who has 10 catches for 215
yards and two TDs. Southeast's biggest playmaker
is University of Florida bound defensive back/wide
receiver Jon Dowling, who is ranked in the top 10
in the nation in most recruiting publications.
Against Manatee, Dowling, who had 15 intercep-
tions last year, had an interception return for a TD
and also caught two touchdown passes.
Southeast's offense averages 250 yards a game
and the defense is giving up an average of 196

Venice: This is the Indians' first meeting with
Southeast in the regular season since the '90s. In
2001, 2002 and 2003, Venice played the
Seminoles in the Spring Classic garnering 21-0,
35-14 and 21-0 wins. Venice (3-1), who are
ranked fifth in the Class 5A state poll, opened
district play with a 41-14 thrashing of Riverview.
The Indians' balanced offense rushed for 166
yards and passed for 177 yards as Venice led 41-
0 at halftime. Quarterback Trey Burton completed
five passes but four were for touchdowns includ-
ing two to tight end Beckett Wales. Defensively,
the Indians keep getting better each week as they
held the Rams to 11 first-half yards and the first-
team allowed less than 90 yards of total offense.
Only a blocked extra point prevented a running
clock in the fourth quarter. This is Venice's first
road game in over a month.
Prediction: Venice 35, Southeast 14


WALES from Page 10A


as he moved here in his sophomore
year from Cape Hatteras, N.C. where he
played football at a small school of only
300 students and he said he lost every
game by 30 or more points.
"When I started catching the football
I didn't know I could do it," said Wales,
who runs a 4.62 40-yard dash. "I sur-
prised myself. From then on, I was like
'wow, I can catch the ball' so I just start-
ed working on catching the ball."
Now he is working on blocking.
"I'm trying to block better because
that is where my team needs me most,"
he said.
Wales has been playing football as
long as he can remember except for the
year he had to play soccer as his home-
town didn't have a football program.
His physicality in other sports drove
him to football.
"I was playing soccer one year and I
would always slide tackle the people
and I would always get in trouble,"
Wales said. "In basketball I would
always foul out every single game. My
parents suggested football. You can't


foul out in football. It's a free shot to get
physical and it just grew from there."
Wales has added to his already large
frame, and it has translated into college
offers.
"Him spending more time in weight
room in off-season has enabled him to
get offers from Division I schools and
become a better blocker and overall a
better football player," Peacock said.
"He has great hands and unbelievable
ball skills."
Wales, who has always wanted to
play in college, has offers from Division
I colleges such as Florida International,
Iowa, Iowa State, Towson, Syracuse,
Duke and Indiana.
Wales won't decide on a college until
the end of the season with unless one
thing happens.
"If they (University of South Florida)
offer me then that is where I will play
football," Wales said. "I have always
wanted to play at USF since I moved
here."

proposed fiscal year 2010
budget and the county-
wide millage rate to fund
that budget following a
public hearing Monday
evening, Sept. 28, at the
Robert L. Anderson Ad-

The millage rate to
fund the $1 billion bud-

another agency (the
county)? And, is it legal to
move the project up on

OCTOBER IS NATIONAL BREAST

CANCER AWARENESS MONTH


THINK PINK

Women are busy at every age, and it's easy to forget about breast health. That's
why it's important to know that breast cancer is the most common form of cancer
in women, and after lung cancer, the second most fatal. There's good news, however.
Over 2 million women have survived breast cancer, and survival rates are increasing
every year. This October, we hope you'll"think pink"-take a few minutes to reflect
about breast cancer and the steps you can take to prevent it.

Risk Factors.
It's important to discuss your family and medical history with your physician, and
to familiarize yourself with the risk factors for breast cancer. Some risk factors can't
be controlled. They include:
* Family history. Women whose mothers or sisters had breast cancer are
more at risk.
Age offirst period, menopause, andfirstfull-term pregnancy. Women who
started menstruating early (before 12) or began menopause late (after 55) are
more at risk, as are women who were over 30 at their first pregnancy and
women who had no children.
Age and ethnicity. Older women and white women are more likely to develop
breast cancer.

At the same time, many risk factors are controllable. They include:
Alcohol consumption. Women who have more than one drink a day are more
likely to develop breast cancer.
Obesity. Obesity increases the risk of post-menopausal breast cancer.
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). Prolonged use of HRT also increases
the risk of developing the disease after menopause.

Early Detection and Screening.
Breast cancer symptoms can be difficult to detect, and sometimes there are no
symptoms at all. That's why breast cancer screening is so important, because early
detection is critical to a successful outcome. Three screening tests are commonly
used to spot breast cancer in its early stages.
* Mammography. Mammograms-or breast x-rays-are the single most impor-
tant tool in the early detection of cancerous tumors in breast tissue. If you're over
the age of 40, make sure you've talked to your doctor about scheduling annual
mammograms.
Clinical breast examinations (CBEs). All women should have breast exams at
their yearly checkups. The examiner gently feels the breast and underarm tissue
to detect any lumps or abnormalities.
Breast self-exams (BSEs). It's important to be familiar with the appearance and
feel of your breasts, and to contact your doctor immediately if you notice changes.
Ask your health care provider to show you how to perform a thorough self-exam.

Diagnosis.
A breast cancer diagnosis is frightening, but you're not alone-as many as
200,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. Your doctor will dis-
cuss treatment options with you, which often include surgery, radiation, and chemo-
therapy. Your doctor can also help you find local breast cancer support groups, and
you can visit www.breastcancer.org for more information and to find online forums.
This month, be proactive about your breast health. Think about making healthy
lifestyle choices, like exercising regularly and curbing alcohol intake. If you're over
40 and you haven't had a mammogram this year, schedule one. Early detection is
everything in the fight against breast cancer, so think pink!


DIGITAL MAMOGRAPHY
AT VENICE HEALTHPARK

Venice Regional uses the latest
in digital mammography technol-
ogy and is offering mammograms to
women of Venice and surrounding
areas at a discounted rate of $89
($10 cheaper than ever before
because of economic conditions).
Reduced rate mammograms are for
women who:
* Have no signs or symptoms of
breast cancer no lumps, skin
redness, irregular surface or nipple
discharge.
Have never had a base line mam-
mogram and are 40 years of age or
older. Regular screening mammo-
grams should begin by age 40.
Are not currently covered by
insurance for mammograms.
A radiologist will interpret your
mammogram and forward a report
to your physician. Therefore, you
MUST have a primary care physi-
cian. If you need a physician referral,
call 483-7600. All mammograms are
done at Venice HealthPark.
This offer is available only during
the month of October. Since appoint-
ments will be limited, please schedule
today by calling 483-7643.

The concept for a but-
terfly garden at West
Blalock Park grew from a
brainstorming session
among VABI volunteers,
Monty Andrews and the
late Dorothy Bombera.
They agreed on the idea
of adding a succulent
and rose garden to round
out the horticultural at-
tractions.
It took only a week of
planning and a few days
to gather the planting
crew Mike Bombera,


Russ Johnson and Shar-
on Daily and the but-
terfly garden became a
reality.
Named after the first
mayor of Venice, West
Blalock Park is free to the
public, handicap accessi-
ble and open from dawn
to dusk.
Established as a non-
profit in 1990, VABI has as
its mission to work toward
making the greater Venice
area a more beautiful
place in which to live,
work and play.
VABI board members
plan and initiate commu-

cated volunteers work to
bring the projects to life.
Collaborating with
area businesses, the Ven-
ice Area Chamber of
Commerce, the Gulf


Coast Community Foun-
dation of Venice, the city
ofVenice, Sarasota Coun-
ty and other foundations,
organizations and gov-
ernment entities, VABI
has contributed to the
enhancement of several
locations.
VABI projects have
included several parks:
Venetian Waterway, Cas-
persen Beach, Patriots,
Volunteer; the Arbor-
etum at West Blalock

lic art initiatives.

Cattle Barons' Ball date set


FROM AMERICAN
CANCER SOCIETY

The American Cancer
Society announces the
date and location for the
fifth annual Cattle Bar-
ons' Ball, an annual fund-
raiser that has become a
fixture in the South
County community.
The 2010 event will
take place on Saturday,
Feb. 27, at the Plantation
Golf & Country Club, 500
Rockley Blvd., Venice.
"Cattle Barons' Ball is
one of the most popular
and successful fundrais-
ers in our area, which
demonstrates how com-
mitted we all are to the
fight against cancer," said
Kelly Pickering, chair of
the 2010 event.
The 2010 version will
attempt to raise even
more money than last
year, a challenge Pick-
ering recognizes as diffi-
cult in our troubled econ-
omy.
"Our committee wants
to remind our sponsors,
auction donors and
attendees that the need
to raise money to sup-
port cancer research and
patient services is per-
haps even more impor-
tant when times are
tough," she said.
Sponsors and donors
will find this year's value-
added enhancements

Libraries change hours


FROM SARASOTA
COUNTY
COMMUNICATIONS

Beginning Monday, all
eight Sarasota County
libraries will operate
with more uniform
hours. The new hours of
operation will provide
greater consistency of
service throughout the
system with one open-
ing time at 10 a.m., one
day closing time of 5
p.m. and one evening
closing time of 8 p.m.


"We are feeling the
pressures of the current
economic downturn
along with families,
businesses and non-
profit organizations, and
adjusting the schedule
means libraries will

to the maximum. You should hold this

This exercise has other variations that

22 Pine View students named


as scholarship semifinalists


FROM THE NATIONAL
MERIT SCHOLARSHIP CORP


The National Merit Scholarship
Corp. has announced the names of
about 16,000 semifinalists, including 22
seniors from Pine View School, in the
55th annual National Merit Scholarship
Program.
The semifinalists can continue in the
competition.
To be considered for a Merit Schol-
arship award, semifinalists must meet
several requirements to advance to the
finalist level. Approximately half of the
finalists will win a National Merit
Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar
title.
More than 1.5 million juniors in
about 22,000 high schools entered the
program by taking the 2008 Preliminary
SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qual-
ifying Test, which serves as an initial
screen of program entrants.
The nationwide pool of semifinal-
ists, which represents less than 1 per-
cent of United States high school
seniors, includes the highest scoring
entrants in each state.
To become a finalist, a semifinalist
must have an outstanding academic
record throughout high school, be
endorsed and recommended by the
high school principal, and earn SAT
scores that confirm the student's earlier
performance on the qualifying test. The
semifinalist and a high school official
must submit a detailed scholarship
application, which includes the stu-
dent's essay and information about his
or her participation and leadership in
school and community activities.
Approximately 15,000 semifinalists


are expected to advance to the finalist
level.
Merit Scholar designees are selected
on the basis of their skills, accomplish-
ments and potential for success in rig-
orous college studies, without regard to
gender, race, ethnic origin or religious
preference.
Three types of National Merit Schol-
arship awards will be offered in spring
2010.
Every finalist will compete for one of
2,500 National Merit $2,500 Schol-
arships that will be awarded on a state
representational basis.
About 1,000 corporate-sponsored
scholarships will be provided by
approximately 270 corporations and
business organizations for finalists who
meet their specified criteria, such as
children of the grantor's employees or
residents of communities where spon-
sor plants or offices are located.
In addition, about 200 colleges and
universities are expected to finance
some 4,700 college-sponsored Merit
Scholarship awards for finalists who
will attend the sponsor institution.
National Merit Scholarship winners
of 2010 will be announced from April
through July.
National Merit Scholarship semifi-
nalists from Pine View School are:
Devon Baker, Joel Baranowski, James
Bedell, Theodoretus Breen, Allegra
Condiotte, Kelsey Davenport, Hillary
Ezcurra, Tara Foster, Evan Gibson,
William Gilpin, Natasha Hajal, Eliza-
beth Hannah, Elliott Johns, Anthony
Kalosis, Michelle Krotec, Alexandra
Lee, Robert McCutcheon, Lillian Pon-
itz, Megan Sanders, Suzanne Setti,
Thomas Silverman and Amy Stockton.


Dictionary Project gives students the gift of words


"Thank you for
the dictionary. I am
grateful for the gift.
I appreciate it. It is a
useful book. Thank
you for believing in
me." Stephen,
Grade 3

FROM NAPSA

Communities with ac-
tive service groups across
the country are in a
unique position to pro-
vide children like Ste-
phen with a vital learning
tool that's easy to use and
builds confidence and
curiosity while develop-
ing their reading skills ...
all with the simple gift of
a donated Webster's
Dictionary.
The Dictionary Project
began when South Caro-
lina mom Mary French
set a goal to raise funds to
donate a dictionary to
every third-grade student
in the state. She saw a
dramatic need to provide
assistance to children at
the critical age when they
make the transition from
learning to read to read-
ing to learn.
Students in the early
school years learn about
3,000 new words each
year. "Children crave
words when they're in
the third grade," says
French. "They're expand-

ing their frame of refer-

we are putting words into
children's hands and the
results are astounding."
Since the project be-
gan 13 years ago, nearly 8
million dictionaries have
been given to students
through Rotary Clubs,
Kiwanis Clubs and other
service organizations
nationwide.
Deborah Hastings, pub-
lisher of Federal Street


Press, a division of Mer-
riam-Webster, believes
these projects have far-
reaching effects. She and
her team supply afford-
able, brightly-colored
paperback dictionaries
(as well as thesauruses
and atlases) to service
groups that present them
to students in the com-
munities where they live.

High school it


never ends for parents


The first thing I really
have to do is introduce
myself. That I'll do in as
few words as possible.
I have been involved
in just about all aspects of
secondary education for
43 years: 33 in public
schools, 10 in parochial.
I've been fortunate to
have been a classroom
teacher, an assistant
principal, a school coun-
selor, a principal, a dis-
trict curriculum coordi-
nator. I've been around
the block, so to speak.
I'll admit here and
now that I don't have all
the answers. Nobody
does. Not even district
superintendents or state
education department
bureaucrats. My name is
not Mr. Know-it-all, but I
do have some answers
and they are dead-on
true. You can take them
to the bank.
I write for parents of
high school students or
soon-to-be high school
students. This column is
not intended for teachers
or school administrators.
In fact, some of my col-
leagues who are, or were,
good friends have taken
issue with one or another
of my points.
The best ones, though,
are still good friends. We
just butt heads now and
then on crisis issues like
what kind of clothing is
appropriate for teachers


to wear in their class-
rooms (no jeans) or
whether students should
be allowed to address
teachers by first names
(no). More about this at
another time. My point is
that you, Mom and Dad,
are my sole audience.
During all my years of
speaking before parent
groups, my underlying
message has been and
continues to be: Always
be involved in your teen's
educational experience.
This means more than
simply attending a bas-
ketball game every week
or so. It means a whole
lot more: like knowing
your son's or daughter's
teachers and having
them know you, knowing
the school administra-
tors, the school coun-
selor, the course of study
your child is pursuing,
his academic progress or
lack of it, her involve-
ment in extracurricular
activities or lack of it, his
socialization with both
peers and adults, even
her attendance record.
By the way, your in-
volvement is not just in
these ways but, even
more actively, by attend-
ing all parent nights at
school. These could be
open houses, meet-the-
teacher nights, report
card nights, special pro-
gram nights. Don't forget
the PTA or PTSA, parents
clubs, athletic boosters,
band aides or whatever
they may be called in
your school.
The point is, you need
to be involved. I've found
that there are three major
reasons why most par-
ents don't get involved.
The first is lack of
time. Everybody is busy
and there is only so much
time to spare. My posi-
tion is that you need to
make time for your kids.
Easy for me to say, I


know.
Let me say this right
now, loud and clear: All
this involvement I preach
about is not just for
mothers. Hardly. Fathers
need to get involved
equally. And not just by
going to Friday night
football games. As I've
often said to parent
groups, "When you were
a young couple in the
throes of passion, you
probably didn't take time
to discuss the impor-
tance of both of you at-
tending PTA meetings.
Maybe you should have."
What complicates all
this, of course, is if you
have been blessed with a
half dozen or so kids.
That leads us to reason
No. 2.
By the time high
school comes around,
you simply may be get-
ting tired out. Most par-
ents are involved in the
elementary years. By
high school, though,
many are just too ex-
hausted, especially if
they have been through
this two, three, four times
or more with older chil-
dren. What can I say?
Doesn't Son No. 5 de-
serve as much time as
you gave to Son No. 1,
even if you're now 20
years older?
Finally, reason No. 3.
Why, I don't know, but
some parents are intimi-
dated by school teachers
and administrators. Let
me assure you that high
school teachers, even
administrators, are not
- I repeat, not ivory
tower intellectuals. Some
may try to put on this
front, but don't buy into
it. The vast majority of
teachers and administra-
tors are just good people
who have a specialty and,
like most of us, are trying

third grade in their town
or city. The kids are thrill-
ed because they each
have a dictionary that is
theirs to keep.
"The fact that most
groups donate year after
year tells me that their
effort is rewarded by the
response of the kids, their
teachers and their fami-
lies who all benefit," said
Hastings. "We are proud
that we are continuing in
the tradition of Noah
Webster, who saw the dic-
tionary as a learning tool
that opens up the world to
children through lan-
guage."

to scratch out a living and
are trying to do a good
job at it as well.
That's not to say that
in my four decades in this
business I haven't had to
deal with a few clunkers.
But they are few and far
between. Most don't last
long and, if they do,
there's a serious flaw in
that school system.
The long and the short
of it is, be involved active-
ly, not passively. We know
that our children are our
most important posses-
sion. They need all the
parental help and sup-
port they can get. And we
in education need to pro-
vide them with the best
possible opportunities
for success. I'm convinc-
ed that together we can
make this happen.
In future columns, I'll
give you many specifics
on exactly how and when
to get involved. Be ready
to meet Mrs. Stickler,
who gives two hours of
math homework every
night, and Mr. Laidback,
who never gives any in
biology, or Mr. Foggy, the
American history teacher
who counts class partici-
pation as 40 percent of
the quarterly grade. You'll
need to ask him, just
what the heck is class
participation anyway?
Be prepared. Things are
going to get a little sticky.

ing hours is the result of
a reduction in the library
system's budget due to
property tax legislation
and the decline in local
property values. Prop-
erty taxes are the major
source of funding for
libraries and the decline
in property values of an
estimated $16 billion
over the last two years
has resulted in less fund-

The plan for consis-

67TH ANNIVERSARY


Navy Seaman Micha-
el J. O'Connor, a 2003
graduate of Venice High
School, Venice, Fla., re-
cently completed United
States Navy basic train-
ing at Recruit Training
Command, Great Lakes,
Ill.
During the eight-week
program, O'Connor
completed a variety of
training, including class-
room study and practical
instruction on naval cus-
toms, first aid, firefight-
ing, water safety and sur-
vival, and shipboard and
aircraft safety. An em-
phasis was also placed
on physical fitness.


The capstone event of
boot camp is Battle Sta-
tions. This exercise gives
recruits the skills and
confidence they need to
succeed in the fleet.
Battle Stations is de-
signed to galvanize the
basic warrior attributes
of sacrifice, dedication,
teamwork and endur-
ance in each recruit
through the practical
application of basic Navy
skills and the core values
of honor, courage and
commitment. Its dis-
tinctly Navy flavor was
designed to take into
account what it means to
be a sailor.

a great success.
Striking up the band
If the drum major at the
University of Central Florida
looks familiar, it's because he
is our own Nick Gissal. This
vivacious, exciting young
man was the drum major at
Venice High School and gave
us many happy moments
with his enthusiasm and
dance moves on the field.
Bravo, Nick.


One of our best
The special person of this
week is A.J. Metzgar, whose
painting "Dawn" won a
third-place award at the
Venice Art Center's Anything
Goes show. If you look close-
ly at the miniature painting,
you will see in the distance
several small sailboats and
a colorful rainbow.
At the reception he was
pleased when people told
him they squinted and
looked closely in order to
see those two elements. The
artist thanked them for
doing so.
He teaches us that if we
look closely at any situa-
tion, we can find some mag-
ical surprises there.
A.J. Metzgar is one of the
award-winning artists who
make Venice a great place to
live.

Such a deal
Branson has more shows
than its residents can see
in a year.
It also has bargain prices
compared to Las Vegas and New
York. Most shows average about
$30-$35, with the top shows like
AndyWilliams Christmas Show
going for $43-$53 per person.
While better than $100 and up for
Broadway shows, that is still
about 50 percent more than what
you can pay for similar shows at
the Venice Community Center
this coming season.
With its just-announced
season pass priced at $105 per
person, it breaks down to $21 per
show.
For that price you sit front and
center in reserved seats within
the first two rows of each section.
No standing in line for tickets. No
having to get there the minute
the center opens in order to get a
good seat. In the words of
someone named Martha "Its a
good thing."
The shows are: 4:2:FIVE on
Nov. 21; the New Dawn Singers
Christmas Show on Dec. 3;
Beatlemania Live on Jan. 23; a
Tribute to Neil Diamond on Feb.
13 and a Tribute to Elvis on
March 13. Shows begin at 7 p.m.
Beer and wine may be purchased
in the lobby.
Branson also has a Tribute to
Elvis. Tickets are more than $21,
and then there is the matter of a
plane ride or two, plus hotel and
meals.
The special Venice Theatre pass
deal is available only until Nov.
21. Call 941-861-1380.

The Players Theatre

kicks off 80th season


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Most of us who live
along Florida's Cultural
Coast were not yet born
when The Players
Theatre opened in
Sarasota in 1930.
Dig out your history
books.
The country was
about to enter the Great
Depression. Millions
were unemployed.
Florida was dealt a
double whammy as its
1920's land boom came
to a screeching halt in
1928, especially in
Sarasota and Venice,
which came a little bit
late to that party.
The population in
Venice had plunged from
4,000 to 400 nearly
overnight. Sarasota fared
a little better as its
population dropped
from 15,000 to 7,000,
according to Jeff LaHurd,
in his latest book,
"Hidden History of
Sarasota."
Those 7,000 people not
only salvaged a great city
but they turned it into
what is today the
heart of what is known
as the cultural coast
of Florida.
John Ringling took
the first step to making
Sarasota a cultural
mecca when he built
his art museum, the first
major art museum in the
south. When The Players
opened its then small
theater company, one
could say the die was
cast. Today, The Players
has plenty of theatrical
company: The Asolo


Repertory Company and
its Conservatory of Actor
Training, Florida Studio
Theatre with its Keating
and Gompertz Theatres
and its Goldstein
Cabaret, the Banyan
Theatre which performs
in the Cook each sum-
mer, the Manatee
Players in nearby
Bradenton and Venice
Theatre, which is cele-
brating its 60th anniver-
sary this year.

The first year
The first year, the
actors performed one-
acts for 281
member/patrons who
paid $2 for an annual
subscription. Unlike the
Venice Theatre, which
found an early home in a
leaky airplane hanger,
The Players did not have
a permanent place to
hang their curtain and
change costumes until
1936 when a 246-theater
was built for $9,000 on
the Tamiami Trail side of
the site still used by the
company to this day. A
painting of that early
building can be seen on
a lobby wall of its
successor building,
which opened in 1974,
with "Kismet," one of the
many musicals for which
the theater has become
known in recent
decades.
For the 80th anniver-
sary season, The Players
will showcase what are
considered to be the best
of The Players' past. To
that end the usual series
of musicals will be
augmented with a play.
As the community


theater for Sarasota, The
Players, involves the
community in its
productions on both
sides of the curtain. It
also has an education
arm, an annual play-
writing competition and
has expanded program-
ming since Jeffrey Kin
became artistic director.
Overseeing the financial
side is Michelle Pingle,
who has been at the
theater for many years,
and has instituted
improved financial
record keeping and
budgeting practices.
Working closely together,
and with the assistance
of an active board of
directors, they are
working to improve both
financial and perfor-
mance aspects
of the theater and its
programs to insure a
healthy future for
The Players.

Affordability
A major financial goal
is to keep Players
programs affordable.
Free and low-cast tickets
are made available to
underprivileged and
special needs audiences.
One cost-cutting item
recently put into prac-
tice by Pingle has been
to cover the back three
rows, saving nearly
$300 per day in royalty
costs for some shows.
More than 750 volun-
teers perform some
50,000 hours of work
annually at the theater.
In addition to big
production musicals, the

'The Nerd' marks the Charlotte


Players' 200th production


PROVIDED BY
THE CHARLOTTE PLAYERS
"The Nerd" starts the
Charlotte Players 49th
season and marks the
Community Theater's
200th production since
the organization's
beginings in1961.
Billed by The Rep as
"one of the funniest plays
ever written," "The Nerd"
is a must see.
Playwright Larry Shue
centers his story around
the life of architect Willum
Cubbert of Terre Haute,
Indiana. Cubbert's worst
nightmare starts when a
Wisconsin bumpkin
named Rick Steadman
comes calling for payback
time. Cubbert owes him a
lot, his life and has had a
standing offer to help


If you go:

What: Charlotte Players
present "The Nerd"
When: 7:30 p.m. Oct. 2,
3, 8, 9, and 10.
2 p.m. Oct. 4.
Where: The Cultural
Center Theater is located
at 2280 Aaron St.,
Port Charlotte.
Info: 941-625-4175
ext. 220.

Steadman in any way he
can in an effort to repay
his debt.
Steadman is welcomed
with open arms but is
quickly revealed as the
nerd, complete with
pocket protector, wader
pants, clunky black
glasses, and slicked-back


"Spanky-like" hair.
Steadman's odd, obnox-
ious behavior repulses
Cubbert friends and his
nerdy tendencies are
enough to break even the
gratitude-filled Cubbert,
who has to muster the
gumption to rid himself of
his unexpected house-
guest.
The production is
Directed by Michele
Strauss. Strauss is an
accomplished actor who
has been "in the business"
for over 30 years.
As Executive Director of
the Royal Palm Players,
Strauss' time is limited for
directing and acting
anymore. "Our company
feels very fortunate to
have Strauss' creativity
and theater talents
molding the final out-


come of this show" said
Charlotte Players Execu-
tive Director Sherrie
Moody.
Charlotte Players is a
not-for-profit 501C3 and
will celebrating the
organization's Golden
Anniversary next season.
Tickets are available

Panama City celebrates fall


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Miles of white sand
beaches and piles of
fresh-caught lobsters are
all the excuse one should
need to head up the coast
to Panama City this fall.
Located about where the
Florida Panhandle begins,
Panama City is a pleasant
drive from the Cultural
Coast. Figure on six-seven
hours, and enjoy the
scenery in one of Florida's
less populated areas. As
you near Panama City you
might take a short detour
into the Apalachicola
National Forest or not -
it all depends on your
feelings for trees versus
beach.
And what a beach -
27 miles of powdery white
sand and currents of water
straight from the Caribbean
that make it a fishermen's
paradise. Sept. 18-20, the
annual Lobsterfest honors
the area's love affair with
seafood.
Billed as the state's
largest lobsterfest, this
20th annual festival not
only features lobster
prepared every way
possible but also offers a
huge sand-sculpting
contest where entrants
can work off the calories
until the next catch comes
in. Proceeds of the three-
day event benefit the
Children's Home Society
of Florida and the Florida
Aquatic & Marine Insti-


tute.
The festival takes place
at Schooners' Beach Club,
5121 Gulf Drive on
Panama City Beach.
One week later, Sept. 18-
20, bikers will gather at
Thunder Beach for a giant
free rally that is said to
draw as many as 65,000
people for food, music,
contests and rides.
Oct. 2-4, Panama City
goes German for its
annual Octoberfest
celebration along
Grace Avenue.
The following weekend,
Oct. 9-11, everyone
switches from beer to wine
for the Panama City Beach
Seafood, Wine and Music
Festival. Entertainment
will include Styx, Gran
Funk Railroad and others
but mostly it is another
glorious excuse to eat
more lobsters and all that
other fresh seafood
brought to the Panama
City docks every day. This
festival will be at Frank
Brown Park, 16200 Panama
Beach City Parkway.
Oct. 16-17, enjoy jazz by
the bay, a festival spon-
sored by the Gulf Jazz
Society in the St, Andrews
section of the city at
Oaks-By-The-Bay Park,
10th and Beck avenues.
An Italian street paint-
ing festival will be held
Oct. 18, featuring work by
both amateurs and
professionals. Children
are invited to do their


artsy thing on the side-
walks of Pier Park, the
areas largest shopping
and entertainment
mecca. Head to Pier Park
at 600 Pier Pard Drive.
Festivals or not, those
27 miles of beach are
incredible, offering vistas
of white sand as far the
eye can see. Several of the
beaches that make up
that sandy stretch of
shoreline have made the
Best Beach lists of Dr.
Beach, Southern Living
and others. To check on
these or other events that
fit your schedule, visit
www.visitpanamacity-
beach.com/see/events/
or call 800-PCBEACH
(850-233-6503).

Lodging
Early fall is a great time
to garner the lowest prices
at Florida hotels and
resorts. At Panama Beach,
many places offer half-
price deals. In the Towne
of Seahaven, stay for half
price at Origin at Sea-
haven, the Seahaven
Beach Hotel and the Best
Value Inn. There also are
some dinner deals and
even 50 percent clothing
discounts at Liz and Jane
Clothes in to make for
even more savings on an
early fall getaway. Most of
the discounts are good
through Oct. 30. For all
the details, visit www.tow-
neofseahaven.com or call
850-636-8550.

Venice Theatre is all

about the number six


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Venice Theatre is all
about the number six
this season.
Entering its 60th
season, it is offering a
six-ticket Flex-Pass,
which is a great deal any
way you slice it. With a
savings of $35 over the
single-ticket price,
subscribers get six
main-stage tickets.
With the pass, buyers
can get six tickets to one
show or single tickets to
six shows or three tickets
for each of two shows or
take four people to one
show and still have two
tickets left for for one or
two other shows. The


problem will be in
figuring out how best to
use the tickets during
what promises to be a
very fine season of
theater at one of the
country's top communi-
ty theaters. Budget-wise,
it is number three.
Award-wise, it is
probably even higher
than that.
Box office prices are
$24 per person for adults
and $12 for K-12
students attending
Mainstage, Stage II and
Cabaret shows, $15 and
$10 for Generations
shows and $20 and $10
for Summerstock. Tickets
for concerts and other
special events are priced


according to the show.
There is a $1 surcharge
for tickets ordered by
phone or purchased on
line. Call 941-488-1115
or visit
www.venicestage.com.
The Mainstage season
opener is the musical,
"Apple Tree" by Jerry
Bock and Sheldon
Hamick. It is playing
from through Oct. 18.
The Generations
opener, "Sleepy Hollow,"
by Ron Myroup, based
on the Washington Irving
classic, continues
through Oct. 11.
Venice Theatre is at
140 W. Tampa Ave., on
the island, in downtown
Venice.

The Races'
The Good Shepherd Day

sponsoring a "Night At The
Races" event held at 6 p.m.

Kingsway Circle, Port
Charlotte. The public is

races. There is a $15 entry
fee into the grandstand,
which includes free soft
drinks all night. Guests can

a $1000 scholarship to

941-575-2139.

Visani presents a special musical event


September 30 October 1, 2009


COMMUNITY NEWS BRIEF


By SHIRLEY GEORGE
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Evelyn Thomas knew
she would be a profes-
sional singer some day.
The Port Charlotte
resident who makes a
rare local appearance
Tuesday at Visani grew
up on Chicago's south
side, an area known as the
jazz capital of the world.
Like most great black
female singers, she began
singing in her local
church.
"I knew at 7 I1 wanted to
be a singer and began my
professional career at 18,"
states Thomas, "my
mother played the piano
and my family sang a lot."
After a brief period in
New York where Thomas
landed a part in the
chorus of a Broadway
show "The Wiz," she
returned to Chicago. She
acquired a manager who
introduced her to Ian
Levine, a disc jockey from
England who wanted to
record American soul
singers for his newly
formed Voltafine Produc-
tion Company.
Impressed with
Thomas' voice and
willingness, Levine
produced her first single,
"Weak Spot" in London in
1975 that entered into
UK's top 50. Thomas
credits Levine with
developing her versatile
style, "Ian encouraged me
to form a blend of singing
jazz/dance music."
The success of Thomas'
record prompted Voltafine
to fly her to London where
she was a frequent guest
on "Top of the Pops" TV
show. Thomas said, "Since
I was a big fan of Andy
Williams, I was thrilled to
perform with him on one
of those shows."
After a successful tour


Greyhound

Greyhounds offer Grey-
hound adoption opportu-
nities from 1 p.m. to

front of Salty Paws store in
Fishermen's Village, 1200
W. Retta Esplanade, Punta
Gorda. Homeward Bound

it, all-volunteer organiza-


tion dedicated to improv-
ing the plight of the ex-
racing greyhound by
education, rescue,
rehabilitation, and
adoptions to loving
homes. For more informa-
tion, call 941-629-9752.

Evelyn Thomas presents "A Night of Jazz at Visani, 2400
Kings Highway, Port Charlotte from 6 p.m. Tuesday. For
more information, call 941-629-9191 for reservations.


of France and England in
2008, Thomas recorded
"Pounding the Pavement,"
'A Million to One," and
"All I Can Give You Is Me"
produced by Levine in
London. They will be
released in late 2009.
Thomas will be accom-
panied Tuesday night by
Anthony Simpson/key-
boards, Paul King/saxo-
phone and Elber Peri-
aza/drums. Blessed with
her perpetual smile and
sultry voice, Thomas
combines her jazz songs
with romantic standards
such as "The Second Time
Around" and "My Funny
Valentine" and a host of
others.
Her voice has been
described as a cross
between the late great
SaraVaughn and Nancy
Wilson. Thomas is best
known for her interna-


tional and most successful
hit "High Energy," popular
in the disco era followed
by another smash hit,
"Standing at the Cross-
roads." She has toured the
United States, Europe,
Canada, Japan, Australia
and South America over
the past 20 plus years.
Thomas and her
husband/manager,
Anthony Simpson, lived in
Miami before moving to
Port Charlotte 17 years
ago.
"We traveled a lot. We
needed a safer environ-
ment and looked at
various places to live. But
I fell in love with Port
Charlotte's quality of life
and neighbors who wave
to each other.
"This is the best place to
live and I'm excited about
performing at Visani."
Thomas said.

menu is stuffed baked

The Greek appetizers
were calling to us, so we
ordered an assortment
from the dinner menu
($7.60). The platter
included three spinach
pies, flaky, buttery trian-
gles filled with spinach and
melting feta cheese. There
were also three grape
leaves stuffed with rice
flavored with fresh dill, and
heaping portions of Greek
olives and feta garnished
with lettuce and ripe
tomato. We enjoyed it all.
Faithful to the theme, he


ordered the small Greek
salad ($6.50) which turned
out to be small in name
only. The oval dish was
brimming with more
lettuce, tomato, feta, and
olives. There were also
slices of cucumber, green
pepper, onion and a
freshly cooked hard boiled
egg. The tangy Greek
dressing bonded the
flavors of the garden-fresh
vegetables and the other
components.

Venice Theatre offers magical mystery


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Playwright/director Ron
Myroup breathes new life
into "Legend of Sleepy
Hollow," the opening
Generations offering of
the season at Venice
Theatre.
The cast had the
audience on the edge of
seats one minute and
chuckling the next, as
Ichabod Crane (Kyle


Luckett), a school teacher
with a voracious appetite,
found a new career; Brom
Bones (Andrew Morgan
Larkin Connors) learned
to say two magical words
to his betrothed; and the
Headless Horseman
(Zak Evanicki) was
reunited with his head.
Based on the Washing-
ton Irving ghost story,
Myroup's version is a
delightful love story with a


twist in honor of All
Hallows Eve.
Noelle Oxboel as The
bride, Haley Rosenthal as
the Vampire girl and
Kimberly Curhan as the
witch added to the
mysteries that twisted and
turned like unleashed
ectoplasm. That Crane's
appetite for food exceeded
his appetite for love, made
it all the easier for charm-
ing KatrinaVon Tassel


(Kaitlyn Terpstra) to follow
her heart.
That Myroup's play
turns on the changing
attitude of young non-
believer Ida Rose Van
Tassel (Sydney Deal) is the
stuff of a really good ghost
story. Myroup's play is that
and more.
Donna Buckholder's set
envelopes cast and
audience, framing the
metaphysical mystery


enacted on the stage,
which included the
covered bridge entrance
used by the audience.
Hunter Cross as Edwin
Van Kilmer, Ricky Del-Real
as WendelVan Ripper,
Elaine Enoch as Gladys
Halter, Kim Hough as Rose
and the Witch of Raven-
rock, Parker Lawhorne as
Jacob Halter, Patrick
Mounce as Diedrich
Knickerbocker, Dalton


North as William Van
Tassel, Joel Oss as Baltus
Van Tassel, Shane Oss as
Ernest Vandercamp, Lori
Terpstra as EmmaVonTas-
sel and Lynne Buhle as
Agatha Ravenscroft each
contributed to the unfold-
ing Sleepy Hollow drama.
