It's Christmas


in the jailhouse


BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR


Christmas is a time of fami-
ly and friends sharing the spir-
it of the season together, open-
ing gaily wrapped packages,
sharing meals together and
singing carols.
For some, the treasured hol-
iday will be spent in the
Sarasota County Jail. What will
Christmas be like for the
inmates and their families at

secure facility?
SCSO Capt. George Scott,
jail administrator, said it will
be made merrier by a band of
volunteer elves.
Tuesday night inmates in
the substance abuse recovery
pod had a visit from Santa,
who along with his elves,
handed out wrapped gifts of T-
shirts, underwear and socks.
"These are all donations,"
Scott said. "And we want to

A Christmas miracle at Target


BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR

Joyce Wilson, her husband,
son-in-law and three grand-
sons are spending their first
Christmas without their
daughter, wife and mother.
Lisa Simonton, 44, lost her
battle with breast cancer on
Oct. 27, and left a grieving
family to navigate the most
joyous of holidays without
her.
"The holidays were proving
to be tougher than we had im-
agined," Wilson wrote in a let-
ter to the Gondolier. "It was


Dec. 10 before I mustered
enough nerve to think about
Christmas and the need for
Lisa's sons to have a tree."
The family had decided on
a small artificial tree that
could be placed on a table
and out of a puppy's reach.
In her search through two
stores, Wilson said she found
the ugliest trees she'd ever
seen.
"I knew my daughter would
not have approved of them for
her sons," she said.
Wilson finally decided to
try Target.
"I never shopped Target,


but my daughter always did,"
she said.
Wilson stopped at the
Venice Target, walked to the
Christmas tree section and
found herself standing in
front of the perfect tree.
'As I stood there, I could
hear my daughter saying, 'Yes,
it's perfect, Mom. Get this
one.'"
Searching the shelves, Wil-
son could not find the tree in
a box. When she realized the
store might not have any left,
she approached a clerk and
asked for help.
The clerk confirmed that
the store was sold out of that
particular tree, and when
Wilson asked if she could buy
the display tree, she was told
it was against store policy.
"I told her of my daughter's
death and how very impor-
tant this tree was," she said.
"The clerk was very nice and
said she would ask the man-
ager."
When the clerk returned
she told Wilson she was sorry
but the manager said she was
sorry. She could not bend the
store rules.
"Still, I could see my
daughter smiling and shaking
her head, 'Don't take no for an
answer Mom,'" she said. "So I
went to the front of the store,
and by that time I was crying.
I felt like I was letting the
whole family down, so I asked
for an audience with the man-
ager."
The manager approached
Wilson and listened to her
story.
"The manager, Ms. Melanie

SUN CORRESPONDENT

In a push one development
leader predicts could make
North Port "the SiliconValley of
renewable energy," the city
and State College of Florida are
exploring a joint effort to pro-
vide work force training in
green energy technology.
The potential collaboration,
aired publicly for the first time
at an SCF trustees meeting
Wednesday, would also in-
clude expanded small-busi-
ness development efforts, and
a showcase of sustainable
energy technology and prod-
ucts on land near SCF's exist-

"This will put North Port on
the map," said Peter Bartolotta,
board member of the commu-

the training could attract stu-
dents nationwide. "This, to

Tax abatement concept
gets nod by city
Economic Development
Task Force

BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

A city advisory board has
given its nod of approval to
offer a tax abatement program
for businesses.
Sarasota County's Board of
County Commissioners is con-
sidering a referendum on the
issue next year, and Venice City
Manager Isaac Turner said it
would be more economical to
piggyback on the county ef-
fort. The city Economic Devel-
opment Task Force agreed the
program should go before vot-
ers.
Turner announced the city
of Venice will lose another 14
percent of its general fund rev-
enues this fiscal year. That's on
top of a 16 percent drop last
year and 13 percent drop the
year before due to the reces-
sion.
Details about the program
have yet to be worked out, like
how much of a tax break to
give, and its duration. The
main idea city council previ-
ously endorsed is to forgive tax
payments for a set period of
time for companies new to the
city or those who want to
expand and create more jobs.


By law the city can exempt
up to 100 percent of ad val-
orem taxes for up to 10 years,
Turner said. The county is
looking at an August referen-
dum on the program, he said,
and could take as little as one
year to implement, but more
likely two years.
'Deliver and act'
"Rarely is a tax abatement
the end-all cure all," said City
Manager Isaac Turner at a
recent Economic Develop-
ment Task Force meeting.
"This will have to be part of a
package of other things we do.
This is one of the lynch pins
companies look at when they
consider relocating."
The task force didn't need
much prodding to give its sup-
port. Their chief concern was
whether council is serious
about the idea.
"This incentive is great, but
council needs to be able to de-
liver and act on this," said Task
Force Member Trent Young.
"We can't do it as a board. We
need council to send that mes-
sage."
You can have the best tools
in the toolkit "but if the intent
is not there" the program will
have little impact, he said.
Sending a message
Key will be setting criteria
for who can participate.
"Retail companies are usu-
ally not part of this, (or) fast


food chains, or big box (stores).
With the economic condition
we are in right now, we may
want to be more flexible with
that," Turner said.
"Other states are offering it,"
said Task Force Member Joan
McGill, vice president of busi-
ness development at the coun-
ty Economic Development
Corporation. "The reason I am
excited about it in Florida in
general and Sarasota (County)
and others along the coastal
areas (is we are not viewed) as
a business community, but
rather a retirement communi-
ty."
"It's sending a message we
want businesses here. Other
states are doing things like
(constructing) a building and
giving rent and utilities free for
a year or more. Those are the
kinds of incentives drawing
businesses out of Florida."
Economic boost
Turner said a tax abatement
program could be just what
the city needs to turn around
the local economy.


"You are counting on them
to bring revenues and jobs to
the city," Turner said. "If more
cities are doing this, we
become a regional center and
hopefully the perception is
increased that we want more
businesses.:
Turner said there are few
risks in a well crafted program.
McGill agreed the synergy of
a successful program could
pay huge dividends.
"It's not just the 50 jobs" that
a company new to the area
could bring, "but those em-
ployees are going to be buying
homes," McGill said. "They are
going to be buying groceries.
They are going to be spending
in the community.
"And the companies will be
buying products and supplies
from other companies. So, you
are elevating the entire eco-
nomic picture here. It is the
economic impact of a compa-
ny and the jobs created and
the capital investment and the
stuff that they produce that
really brings the economic
impact to the community. It's
not just the company and the
50 jobs. It's way bigger than
that."
Turner's perspective
Turner, who participated in
a tax abatement program as
city manager in Ormond
Beach, said the program could

to spot Santa flying in, not a sled, but a helicopter on loan from the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office. Venice Police Department Capt. Tom

Economy forces Sarasota Arts

and Culture Alliance to disband


Cirquesa is back!


BY CHRISTINE HAWES
SUN CORRESPONDENT

The Sarasota Arts and Culture
Alliance, a group that provided public
relations, networking and recognition
for South County artists for more
than a decade, has decided to dis-
band because of a lack of involve-
ment and support caused by the lag-
ging economy.
"Times are tough, and more groups
are interested in their groups alone.
We weren't getting a lot of support
from the membership or from the
board itself," said president Bonnie
Kaiser, who announced the alliance's
disbanding in its upcoming newslet-
ter. "People are just trying to survive
right now, and it's very difficult. When
you're worried about getting your own
business to survive, it's hard to sup-
port another organization."
Kaiser, president for the last three
years and a founding board member,
said she actually began leaning toward
ending the alliance three months ago.
Her instinct was confirmed, Kaiser said,
when only 54 people showed up at
November's Mad Hatter Tea Party, an
annual alliance event that typically
attracts up to 150 participants.
In addition, membership had dwin-
dled to 150 from a former high of 600,
Kaiser said.
The 11-year-old alliance's passing
will leave a void in the South County
arts community, according to several
arts leaders who say that the county's
other arts coalition, the Sarasota Arts
Council, has traditionally focused
mostly on artists and groups based in
the city of Sarasota.
"I'm extremely disappointed," said
Catherine Beausoleil, a board member
of the North Port Arts Center. "I did
think they provided a valuable service


that no other organization does in
South County. They were, in my opin-
ion, a great umbrella organization that
did support South County arts."
Beausoleil noted that the alliance
provided free public relations for the
North Port Art Center (formerly the
North Port Art Guild) "even before we
had a building" through the alliance's
newsletter, Web site and mailings.
Jean Trammell, former president of
the Sarasota Arts Council and also a for-
mer alliance board member, said she
would most miss the alliance's annual
Muses Awards, which recognized
artists of all kinds throughout the area
from Osprey to Boca Grande.
"The artists' directory was particu-
larly well done," Trammell said. "It
made an impact on people who didn't
quite realize how many professionals
we had operating in South County."
The alliance's other key contribu-
tions, Kaiser said, included collaborat-
ing with Venice MainStreet on an annu-
al ArtsFest celebration; hosting and
coordinating an annual art studio tour;
and standing up for arts education in
public schools in the mid-1990s, when
a movement was afoot to slash arts
education for budgetary purposes.
"It had its day, and it made a big dif-
ference in this community," she said.
Both Kaiser and Trammell said they
hope a reinvented alliance, or some
version of it, will one day return to serve
South County artists and arts groups.
"I think once people have a chance
to recover from everything else they're
having to deal with at the moment, I'm
pretty sure it will come back," Trammell
said.
All current members will have their
dues returned, Kaiser said, and any
remaining money will be used to fund
youth art scholarships throughout
the area.

Collecting aluminum
Thomas Eugene Eaton and
Jamie Lynn Dixon decided to
help themselves to some alu-
minum without permission,
according to a Sarasota
County Sheriff's Officer report.
On Dec. 19, a warehouse
industrial complex security
guard at the Sarasota Business
Center, 700 Commerce Drive,
Venice, spotted two suspicious
people in a pickup truck
about 9 p.m.
The guard said a silver
pickup truck was in the area
of Window Pros and a white
male and female were loading
aluminum products into the
rear of the pickup.
When the guard talked with
the people, he was dissatisfied
with the information they pro-
vided as to why they were tak-
ing the aluminum.
Eaton said a person named
John had given him permis-
sion to take the aluminum,
but the guard didn't believe
him and called the business
owner.
As he was doing that, the
two left the area.
The business owner said he
hadn't given anyone permis-


sion to take the alu-
minum.
As the SCSO deputy spoke
to the guard, the truck drove
north on Jacaranda Boulevard
in the direction of Border
Road.
The deputy conducted a
traffic stop to determine why
the silver Chevrolet pickup
was in the area.
The truck was registered to
Dixon.
When the deputy asked for
identification, he learned that
Eaton's driver license was sus-
pended, and he didn't have
any identification.
As it turned out, Eaton had
at least 10 suspensions for not
paying traffic fines.
He told the deputy the
judge was going to eliminate
the suspensions in exchange
for his community service.
The deputy also learned
that Dixon's license was sus-
pended and she had no insur-
ance on her truck.
That would be the same
truck that was loaded down
with numerous aluminum
products with an old love seat
balanced on top of the alu-
minum.
The guard told the deputy
that Eaton was throwing alu-
minum out of a dumpster and
Dixon was loading it into the
truck when he had first seen
them.
Eaton was arrested and
charged with driving while
license suspended third or
subsequent offense and loiter-
ing and prowling. His bond is
$1,620.
Dixon was arrested and
charged with loitering and
prowling. Her bond is $120.

Contessa Couture is growing .. and moving


ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


Badra Nanayakkara is very
excited to be moving to open
Contessa Couture at 121 W
Venice Ave., on Feb. 1, having
acquired the former JoeLee's
space.
"It will be a destination store
for evening wear, prom and
weddings twice the size of
Barefoot Contessa," she said.
Her plans include having an
onsite seamstress handling
alterations, and beauty and
fashion consultants.
"I cater to the forever-40
woman with special lines in-
cluding Sue Wong, Diane Freis
and Simon Chang," she said.
Bridal lines will be expand-
ed, with dresses available for
destination weddings and for
the second-time bride.
It was four years ago that
she opened Barefoot Contessa
downtown. Originally from Sri
Lanka, she came to Venice in
2003 following 30 years in hos-
pital administration in Wash-
ington, D.C.
Nanayakkara intends to hire
fashion-experienced people.
Hours are Monday through
Saturday 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and
Sunday afternoons. Call 484-
1898.


Bella Brezza opening
The Licata family, who
served their traditional Italian
food on the island, will soon
open their new Bella Brezza
Restaurant, 900 Venetia Blvd.,
across from Northern Trust
Bank in the former Casey's
Grill.
"We will be opening soon
after Christmas," said Sal
Licata, co-owner with Dr. Sunil
Pandaya.
A family restaurant, it has a
full bar and seats 200 diners.
There is outside dining for 20
on a balcony that will be ex-
panded in the future. The over-
flow/private meeting room for
local organizations will have a
ceiling projector and wall
screen.
Licata is employing 20 peo-
ple, including former Sal &
Tony's waitstaff and new hires.
Supplementing the Italian
menu is American cuisine with
specialty steak and seafood
dishes.
"For lunch there will be our
buffet pizza table, and we are
adding a small salad buffet
table," said Debra Licata.
Renovation of the restau-
rant includes new floors, up-
holstery and booths in the bar.
The exterior is decorated in
muted yellow with chocolate
brown, and new cream awn-
ings are being fitted.
Licata was schooled in his
uncle's two restaurants, a clam
bar and a pizzeria, in Queens
and owned a restaurant in
New York for eight years. He
opened up Sal & Tony's on the
island five years ago and
recently closed it to open Bella
Brezza.
Initially it will open 11 a.m.-
10 p.m. seven days a week


serving lunch and dinner. Call
488-9896.
Osprey Inn
now Bentley's
A new name on the local
accommodation schedule will
appear at the start of the New
Year when "Bentley's Resort
Hotel" replaces "Osprey Inn
Motel," 1660 South Tamiami
Trail, Osprey.
Co-owner Paul Martin de-
cided to bring forward the
renaming as he has completed
a considerable renovation to
the former motel. Seventy
rooms have been upgraded; in
the renamed West Wing 44
rooms were torn down to the
brickwork. They will be com-
pletely rebuilt with new furni-
ture, air conditioning and flat-
screen TVs and open to guests
in February.
The resort area has had a
complete makeover, with a
wood decked flush to the
infinity-style pool. There is a
new tiki bar, a wedding gazebo
and cabanas. The ballroom
has been refitted and there is a
music lounge. Morgan's rest-
aurant, the first of three plan-
ned for Bentley's, is open. Call
966-2121.
Reiki specialist moves
Francine Milford has relo-
cated The Reiki Center of
Venice to an all-green location
inside the Holiday House, 455
North U.S. 41 Bypass.
Ten years ago she launched
the health and healing center
on the island, providing alter-
native treatments and work-
shops in aromatherapy, Reiki,
color therapy, tuning-fork

Merchants band



together for help


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

New on the busy downtown
avenues this season to help
shoppers and businesses alike
is the recently formed Down-
town Merchants ofVenice.
Its goal is to support local
businesses by initiating more
promotional events. "Every-
thing is waiting for you down-
town" is the theme they creat-
ed for this season.
It began with a small group
of downtown store owners
going out in the evening for a
glass of wine and to discuss
ways they could encourage
local shoppers to take advan-
tage of the downtown shop-
ping area's unique mix of prod-
ucts and the personal service
missing in the big-box stores.


"We came up with some
ideas, helped each other, talk-
ed about ad rates, got the sup-
port of newspapers and it just
mushroomed from there," said
Sandy McGowan, owner of
Sandy's Designer Clothing.
Colleague Rosanne Brown,
owner of Venice Stationers,
feels they have taken charge of
their own destiny.
"Too many times retailers
will sit back and lament busi-
ness, but not take the initiative
to do something about it," she
said.
The group of 20 merchants
believes they can do more for
shoppers too. Beautiful Christ-
mas decorations and signs and
TV commercials talking about
Venice in general terms are all

Wicked Web sites struggle in checked environment


BY KELLI TARALA
COMPUTER COLUMNIST

Every business, large and
small, should have a Web site.
But have you ever thought
about how people get to your
Web site? There are a lot of Web
sites on the Internet. How do
search engines like Google and
Bing find your Web site?
These search engines rely
on Domain Naming Services
to translate a friendly name
such as www.enclavehosting.
com to an Internet Protocol
address: 67.134.223.73.
Most people rely on the
"friendly" name as opposed to
memorizing a numeric ad-
dress. Most people also trust
that the friendly name will take
them to the appropriate Web
site.
Because of this dependence
on friendly names, Domain
Naming Services are the back-
bone of the Internet. This leads
to the protection of that ser-
vice, which translates between
the friendly names and the IP
address.
Internet Corporation for
Assigned Names and Numbers
is a nonprofit corporation cre-
ated in 1998 to oversee In-
ternet-related tasks. One of the
chief functions of ICANN is
authorizing domain name reg-
istrars. Registrars are compa-
nies that are ICANN-accredit-
ed to sell domain names based
on the generic top-level do-
mains that include .com and
.net.
An end-user cannot directly


register a domain and manage
its domain information with
ICANN. A designated registrar
must be chosen. Companies
such as GoDaddy.com, Reg-
ister.com, and NetworkSolu
tions.com are all designated
registrars. End users must con-
tact one of them to purchase a
domain and Web site address.
Domain name registrars
manage thousands of records
-as of Sept. 15, there were 111
million registered addresses
on the Internet. With such a
large number of addresses to
manage, it becomes easy for
criminals to steal addresses or
create fake addresses.
For legitimate businesses, a
domain name (Web site) is a
way to market online. In the
criminal world, domain names
are a key part of pretending to
be a legitimate and trusted
company. These copycat do-
main names are then used to
run "botnet" and "phishing"
operations to steal informa-
tion.
Cyber-criminals are plun-
dering domain-name regis-
trars around the world to get
domain names of legitimate
companies. For an inexpensive
price, a criminal organization
can purchase a domain name
and then use it for nefarious
purposes. Criminals also pur-
chase domain names of legiti-
mate companies and install
malware packages that com-
mandeer the Web site for a
botnet that will attack and
compromise other Web sites.
These are also referred to as


zombies.
Domain name registrars
have a hard time finding and
removing botnets. Canceling
or removing a domain name
can be difficult because it is
not always clear who the
owner of a malicious domain
is.
Go Daddy, for example, has
36 million domain names
under management for more
than 6 million customers. It
fights a round-the-clock battle
to identify domain-name
abuse.
In spite of all its efforts,
criminals still slip through the
net, in part because registra-
tion services are highly auto-
mated, validation processes
are insufficient and the crimi-
nals are cagey, determined and
technically savvy.
OpenDNS is a service that is
available to home users, small
businesses and larger compa-
nies. OpenDNS protects
Internet connectivity.
OpenDNS is currently being
used across a wide variety of
networks, all with different
configurations, but OpenDNS
is not software. OpenDNS is an
Internet service that protects
your employees and family
from compromised Web sites
as well as protecting your com-
pany's Internet connection.
Many home users and busi-
ness users are routed through
their Internet providers' DNS
servers. If all the Internet
providers' customers are using
the same DNS servers, every-
one will be affected if the DNS


servers become unavailable. If
the Internet service providers'
DNS servers are down, cus-
tomers will not be able to
locate Web sites unless they
have memorized the numeric
IP address. Without DNS, the
Internet might as well be
down.
Since small and medium
businesses cannot afford to be
offline for any reason, Open-
DNS provides a distributed
global network with redun-
dant DNS servers. If an In-
ternet service provider is com-
promised with a botnet or
other malicious code, those
businesses configured to use
OpenDNS will still be online
for customers, even if their
Internet provider is not func-
tioning.
OpenDNS has the ability to
filter out Web sites that contain
malicious code or inappropri-
ate content. With more than 50
categories, OpenDNS orga-
nizes the Internet's content for
users or businesses to choose a
desired filtering level, from
"high" to "minimal." These fil-
tering preferences take effect
in just minutes. Some of the
categories that can be blocked
include Adult Themes, Al-
cohol, Chat, Dating, Drugs,
Gambling, Hate and Discrim-
ination.
This is just a short snapshot
of the categories that Open-
DNS can block. With a free
account, you can manage your
home or business network in
the dashboard, setting custom
preferences all the way down


to the individual public IP
address. Visit
www.opendns.com.
OpenDNS can also protect
your home and business net-
work from phishing attacks.
Phishing is criminally attempt-
ing to acquire sensitive infor-
mation such as user names
and passwords by masquerad-
ing as a trustworthy entity.
Communications purporting
to be from banks, popular
social Web sites and online
payment processors are com-
monly used to lure the unsus-
pecting public to fake Web
sites whose look and feel are
almost identical to the legiti-
mate one.
OpenDNS operates Phish-
Tank, a site that works by hav-
ing real people look at suspect-
ed phishing scams and verify
their illegitimacy.
With no software installa-
tion, OpenDNS is a no-risk
opportunity to effectively
block malicious software and
questionable Web sites. It is an
excellent way to prevent mali-
cious software from infecting
your computers and damaging
your company's reputation
online as well as around town.

OUR VIEW


Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus


EDITOR'S NOTE: This editorial by
Francis P. Church, which was first pub-
lished in The New York Sun in 1897, is
generally considered the best known in
the history of newspapers, largely
because in more than 100 years no one
has been able to improve upon its mes-
sage.
We take pleasure in answering
thus prominently the com-
munication below, expressing
at the same time our great gratifica-
tion that its faithful author is num-
bered among the friends of The Sun:


Dear Editor:

I am 8 years old. Some of my little
friends say there is no Santa Claus.
Papa says, "If you see it in The Sun, it's
so." Please tell me the truth, is there a


Santa Claus?

Virginia O'Hanlon

Virginia, your little friends are
wrong. They have been affected by
the skepticism of a skeptical age. They
do not believe except they see. They
think that nothing can be which is not
comprehensible by their little minds.
All minds, Virginia, whether they
be men's or children's, are little. In this
great universe of ours, man is a mere
insect, an ant, in his intellect as com-
pared with the boundless world
about him, as measured by the intelli-
gence capable of grasping the whole
of truth and knowledge.
Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.
He exists as certainly as love and gen-
erosity and devotion exist, and you
know that they abound and give to
your life its highest beauty and joy.


Alas! how dreary would be the
world if there were no Santa Claus! It
would be as dreary as if there were no
Virginias. There would be no childlike
faith then, no poetry, no romance to
make tolerable this existence. We
should have no enjoyment, except in
sense and sight. The eternal light with
which childhood fills the world would
be extinguished.
Not believe in Santa Claus! You
might as well not believe in fairies.
You might get your papa to hire men
to watch in all the chimneys on
Christmas eve to catch Santa Claus,
but even if you did not see Santa
Claus coming down, what would that
prove? Nobody sees Santa Claus, but
that is no sign that there is no Santa
Claus.
The most real things in the world
are those that neither children nor
men can see. Did you ever see fairies


dancing on the lawn? Of course not,
but that's no proof that they are not
there. Nobody can conceive or imag-
ine all the wonders there are unseen
and unseeable in the world.
You tear apart the baby's rattle and
see what makes the noise inside, but
there is a veil covering the unseen
world which not the strongest man,
nor even the united strength of all the
strongest men that ever lived could
tear apart. Only faith, poetry, love,
romance, can push aside that curtain
and view and picture the supernal
beauty and glory beyond. Is it all real?
Ah, Virginia, in all this world there is
nothing else real and abiding.
No Santa Claus! Thank God! he
lives and lives forever. A thousand
years from now, Virginia, nay 10 times
10,000 years from now, he will contin-
ue to make glad the heart of child-

BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


As we approach Christmas
we often ponder the meaning
of it all. We hope it is a very
happy time as we share gifts
and loving time with our fami-
lies. But it is also a time of sad-
ness, a time when a lot of peo-
ple are missing loved ones or
maybe carrying great financial
or personal burdens. It's the
sad paradox of Christmas.
Depression it is said is at its
highest at this time. Having
lost my father this year it is my
first Christmas without one of
my parents, certainly a time to
honor their memory and re-
flect on their goodness.
Our community also lost a
lot of wonderful people who
had contributed so much. I
probably will miss some of
those in this recounting and
for that I apologize. Let me
know of those please.
It started with the tragic loss
of Mike Voigt, way too young
to leave us. He was a friend to
so many, giving to a lot of oth-
ers not only with a wonderful
smile but through his and his
client's generosity. He had
been a longtime member of
Sertoma and very involved in
youth sports.
In February we lost Robert
Lee, for whom, with wife Joan,
the Boys & Girls Club of Venice
was named. They gave a huge
property to the Boys & Girls
Club that upon its sale made
this fabulous resource possi-
ble.
Likewise, we lost Sam
Booth, who gave unselfishly to
Loveland, our school for devel-
opmentally disabled. He was a
board member early on who
with a few others saved Love-
land by his generosity then
later generously donated the
land that the current campus
sits on. He had been a long-
time community supporter
including being on the hospi-
tal board and serving as a
Rotarian.
Another loss was Ray Wil-
want who was a wonderful
gentle giant. He was a big part
of the Habitat for Humanity
growth in Venice. He was a
heck of a bridge player and
golfer. I only regret I was in the
bathroom when he hit a hole
in one.
In March we lost Emily
Hightower who was one of the
big arts supporters for dec-
ades. In fact, she was a found-
ing member of the Cecilian
Music Society in 1951. She was
a talented pianist and was the


first female member of the
local Lions Club where she
played the piano for years.
In May one of the kindest
thoughtful guys you could ever
meet, Jeff McKay, passed away
after a very long and valiant
fight with cancer. Jeff had for
years been the assistant coun-
ty administrator in the Robert
L. Anderson Administration
building in South Venice. Boy,
wasn't it nice to have a pres-
ence in South County? After
leaving the County, Jeff worked
'til the end for Tri County Air
Conditioning.
Maxine Barrett was also
lost. While she hadn't been in
Venice for many years, when
she was here, she got involved.
She headed a drive to make
the area next to Sharky's a pas-
sive park, and in particular, not
to be developed commercially.
Because of her efforts, the park
was named after her this year.
Of great sadness to all in-
volved in the community and
the nonprofits was the passing
of Jack Meyerhoff. Jack was a
longtime member of the hos-
pital board of directors
through several owners, was a
founding member of the MCC
(now State College of Florida)
south campus advisory board,
and served as an advisor,
donor and held many impor-
tant positions with a long list
of community organizations.
As you can see our commu-
nity lost a lot of wealth this
year. Their contributions were
more than we had ever lost in
one year before and will be dif-
ficult to replace. Yet we are
blessed to have hundreds and
hundreds of people volunteer-
ing to make this a special com-
munity. It is often I hear when
people come to this commu-
nity they feel so welcome so
fast and the community seems
so close.
We are also fortunate to
have people willing to be lead-
ers of the city and county and
schools. They put in countless
hours, and as you well know, I
don't agree with all they do, but
I do appreciate that they work
hard for the community.


By's Crack: "On the
fourth day of Christmas my
true love gave to me four
calling birds, three French
hens, two turtle doves, and a
lawsuit from the Save the
Birds Foundation.

their philosophies and person-
alities were very different. Jerry

Roll the dice

Let 'em roll. I'm calling regarding the comment about gam-
bling in Florida. I think it's an excellent idea. We've probably got
more hotel rooms than any state in the country, next toVegas. We
might as well keep them full. At least my daughter could get a job
as a waitress working her way through college. She can't even get
a job as a waitress because there aren't any jobs. We've got to do
something. Our elected officials need to listen up.


Reversal. If Obama had
decided to try the 9-11 crimi-
nals in the military court, the
headline of your Saturday,
Dec. 5, column would have
read, "Prosecute terrorists in
federal court." As a Repub-
lican, you take the opposite
approach to the Dems' plans.
All you guys on the right, fess
up.
EDITOR'S NOTE: The column in
question was by Congressman
Vern Buchanan, a Republican.
Shalom. Religious column
writer Bennett Gross has writ-
ten a column inspiring and
encouraging us to tone down
political rhetoric and just get
along with each other. So
Bennett, I'm a Catholic, but so
admire your philosophy. I wish
I knew you and could be your
friend. Shalom.
Unneeded. I would suggest
removing the two three-way
stop signs on Lacaya. They are
not necessary or needed.
Great idea. This is about
gambling in Florida. Great
idea. Why isn't Tallahassee lis-
tening?
Jumping off. I'm reading
Dec. 9 Gondolier Sun and an
article caught my eye entitled,
"New state estimates help
county budget," by Carol Sak-
owitz. I turned to 6A to contin-
ue the article and there wasn't
anything there about the bud-
get or anywhere else in the
paper. I'd like to know if this is
the way you save money. This
is one of the reasons I have
trouble with the Gondolier
Sun, because nothing is like it's
supposed to be. Is the article


Let em


Have It


going to be in next week's
paper on Saturday? Not a
happy camper.
EDITOR'S NOTE: The copy desk
made an error and it wasn't
caught. The complete article, and
a second one that didn't jump,
appeared in the following edition.
Cut one. Yes, I think the
post office should go to five
days a week. My wife works for
it and people are losing their
jobs left and right here. People
just don't realize. They're going
to ship people 300 to 350 miles
away from their jobs. Yes, they
need to stop delivering on
Saturday.
No freebies. This is in refer-
ence to the Let'em Have It item
called "Free spending." I don't
know where this person got
their information. I worked for
the government for 35 years
and I paid for my insurance. It


is not a freebie. I did not pay
into Social Security and I do
not collect Social Security in
my retirement. I do have a
retirement plan that I paid into
a large amount in order to
have a sensible retirement. All
these freebies this person is
talking about I think they'd
better go to fact check and
make sure they get their com-
ments correct.
More flights. Yes, the post
office should stop delivery on
Saturday; five days per week is
sufficient. Also, the Sarasota-
Bradenton International Air-
port is a beautiful facility, but
it's underused. There should
be a commuter flight to Tam-
pa, Fort Myers and Miami to
allow travelers greater ease in
connecting with the major air-
lines. Why did American Eagle
stop the flights to Miami?
Through the years it has been
at the airport, only to stop. The
planes were always full to
Miami. If there were a com-
muter flight to Tampa and Fort
Myers, I could stop taking a
limo to these airports.
Choice. I was reading the
Hugh Laubis column, and I
don't believe this man really
knows what he is talking
about. He lives in Waterford.
There have been jets coming
in and out of Venice airport for
41 years, since I've lived here in
Venice. For safety, we need this
airport to be a "C."
It makes me wonder why a
person would make rumors
like this, unfounded rumors,
to try to bring the airport
down.
Why did he come here to
live in Venice? Why didn't he
choose somewhere else that
didn't have an airport in the
town? That's what gets me.
They had to come to Venice
and drive around and see that
the airport was there. If they
didn't want an airport, they
could have chosen other
places to live. This just floors
me. If you don't like it, go away.

LETTERS FROM OUR READ]


RS


Much to be thankful for

Editor:
Venice is such a wonderful place to live. The city on
the Gulf paradise!
We have so many people who work to keep this city a
wonderful place to live.
As I watched the boat parade, I thought of all the work
those people did for us to enjoy the beauty of their boats.
Then the one that had the lady singing "Go Tell it on the
Mountain" we are allowed to have religious songs
sung about Christ, the real meaning of Christmas. Thank
you, town officials, for not taking Christmas away from
us. (Some cities have, you know.)
We drive down Venice Avenue and see the pretty
lights and decorated posts. Thank you to the people that
work to make Venice beautiful.
We see all the beautiful poinsettias put out by
Hazeltine Nurseries a lot of work for us to enjoy God's
nature. Thank you for the flowers all year long.
We are truly blessed to live in a city that is so well kept
all year long, not just at Christmas.
As we rush along in our busy lives, let's not forget the
people that keep Venice looking so nice, and just say
"thank you" when we see them working.
We have the Gulf, beaches, palm trees, warm weath-
er and great people, so be thankful we can enjoy Venice.
I know there are people in need who have lost jobs, so
let's not forget to help them. When we give and share, it
also makes us a better city on the Gulf.
May God bless you in 2010.

Let's vote on
health-care reform

Editor:
I have received the ab-
breviated version of Pres-
ident Obama's health pro-
gram, and I even have the


long version. I can under-
stand why the liberal Dem-
ocrats didn't even read
what they wrote. I have
never seen such gobbledy-
gook in my life. It is so con-
tradictorily written and
poorly worded that no


wonder no one has read it.
I do not like the govern-
ment telling me what kind
of health care I am entitled
to, what doctor I shall see
and when I will be able to
see him or her. Also, I am 81
years old and feel that Oba-
ma has no right to deter-
mine how long I shall live.
At this point we no longer
have a democracy. We are
teetering on the edge of
socialism.
The government has
taken over banks, Chrysler
and General Motors. As a
matter of fact, it is my un-
derstanding that the presi-
dent has turned over 17 per-
cent ownership to the UAW
The town meetings
raised the ire of our people.
I think it is time for us
American citizens to speak
up. I suggest we have an
election by all registered
Americans for or against
Obama's health-care plan.
No immigrant should par-
ticipate in the election.
Why hasn't any politician
thought of this?
Our country was based
on freedom. The House of
Representatives and Sen-
ate were voted in by the
people to represent us.
They should not be ram-
ming all these mandates
down our throats and
spending trillions of dollars
without our approval.

VEDDER from Page8A


with 22 years experience offered a much
more middle-of-the-road approach. It's
sad that we are losing 35 years of Venice
planning experience. Ed Martin told us
in getting elected he wanted different
opinions in front of the council and on its
boards. He was obviously telling us what
we wanted to hear, not what he was going
to practice. We have found this on other
subjects as well, particularly the airport.
His choices have experience in planning
and government and will lend some new
thinking which will be of value. I welcome
them.
It was unfortunate that he couldn't
be there for the final meeting of these
two dedicated long time servants.
Last week I mentioned the county-
wide Festival that rings of a gift to
Ringling. That prompted Virginia Haley,
a very capable head of the Visitors and
Convention Bureau, to call and tell me
that for the last two years there has been
money allocated, up to $10,000, to pro-


mote festivals that are outside of the sea-
son. The season is defined January to
Easter. Since all of it was not claimed this
last year they are going to open what lit-
tle is left. Unfortunately, Easter is April 4,
and the Shark's Tooth Festival is April 10,
but just maybe they would make an
exception since it is so close. In the sum-
mer, they reopen for the period after
October, which could include the Venice
Christmas Boat Parade and, maybe, the
Venice Holiday Parade. Virginia and her
team, if an award is given, will help with
where to place the advertising. In this
case, Santa Claus, there is aVirginia.

One person who is recovering from
surgery (no calls please) is city attorney
Bob Anderson. We wish Bob our prayers
and a speedy recovery.
Please enjoy the holidays, relax, enjoy
loved ones and make those resolutions
that will not only be good for you but for
those around you.

umn in this paper

Indians fall to Southeast


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


MR. SHEEPSHEAD
COLUMNIST


Do you have
a 'bait tree'?


If not, maybe you should
find one. The following
sounds unbelievable, but the
bait and tackle shop owner
swears there is such a thing.
Her 20-something daugh-
ter, "Mary," lives on a bay off
Sarasota Bay, and one day
this past summer, she decid-
ed to do some fishing behind
her house. After going to sev-
eral bait shops, she discov-
ered no one had live shrimp.
After walking near the
water on this windy day, she
noticed some berries were
dropping in the water and
the fish were gulping them
up. She got closer and
noticed they were sheeps-
head. She put the small
berries on a small aberdeen
hook and caught several nice
sheepies. "Mary" then called
her mom and told her she
had her very own "bait tree."
Next month, the local bait
shops will be carrying pack-
ages of berries (just kidding).
Well, if you don't catch any-
thing, I guess you would like
a nice snack.
This last cold front
pushed many species back
into the Intracoastal. A few
friends told me they saw
sheepies grazing near the
rocks. I'm fairly sure the
pompanos and jacks are also
there. Remember, pomps
love live or cooked frozen
sand fleas.
Well, fellow Sheepshead-
ites, the time has come to say
goodbye until next week.

Mr Sheepshead is Dave
Hack. Contact him at
486-1998, 321-8849 or

A scoring drought at the end
the third quarter was costly as
Venice dropped a 54-43 deci-
sion to Southeast on Tuesday
night at Venice High.
Trailing 30-29 with 5:40 after
alayup off rebound by sopho-
more Laura Hackett, the Lady
Indians (5-5) couldn't get their
shots to fall the rest of the quar-
ter as Southeast closed out the
quarter on a 10-0 run to grab a
41-29 cushion.
Hurting Venice was the fact
leading-scorer Juliana Caval-
laro was sitting on the bench
much of the game in foul trou-
ble. The sophomore picked up
her fourth foul with 7:19 left in
the third quarter and didn't play
the rest of the quarter.
"We did the best we could
without Juliana and it came to a
certain point we couldn't put a
basket in," said Venice coach Joe
Whelton. "It was just too early to
put her (Juliana) back in."
The Lady Indians couldn't
recover in the fourth quarter.
"In the end it was the
turnovers that killed us," said
Whelton. "We had too many
turnovers."
Venice finished with 22
turnovers.
In the first half, Venice
stayed with Southeast (13-1), a
team which has dominated the
Lady Indians over the last 10
years. In fact, Venice has just
one win (Dec. 22, 2006) over
the Lady Seminoles over the
last 17 meetings dating back to
1998.

The Lady Indians fell behind
9-5 before scoring eight
straight points to take a 12-9
lead with 2:44 left in the first
quarter. However, Southeast
outscored Venice 5-2 to force a
14-14 deadlock.
The score remained close in
the second quarter as South-
east's Bianca Hanna and Tymea
Dunbar picked up their third
foul.
A layup off a rebound by
KirstenWalchle tied the score at
21-21 with 2:23 left in the sec-
ond quarter before Southeast
sank two consecutive 3-point-
ers for a 26-21 cushion.
Venice scored the final four


points of the second quarter to
trail, 27-25, at halftime.
Sophomore Laura Hackett
was a force on the boards as
she finished with 15 rebounds
and also led the Lady Indians
with 13 points.
"We've been waiting for her to
do that," said Whelton. "Early in
the season, she was just trying
too hard and pressing herself too
hard. She's a little bit more
relaxed up there keeping her
balance and she is doing well."
Cavallaro ended with 10
points.

VENICE BEATS BOOKER: Venice rallied from a

second quarter en route to a 46-32 win over

"It was the best defense we played all year,"
said Venice coach Steve Cavallaro, whose Indians
have won two straight.
After only scoring two points in the first quarter,
the Indians (3-3) outscored Booker, 17-6 in the
second quarter to take a 19-15 halftime lead.

Venice dominates Gainesville


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

Venice closed out the year with a
dominating 7-0 win over Gainesville on a
chilly Monday morning at Powell-Davis
Stadium.
The Lady Indians were coming off their
first loss since Nov. 10 with a 3-2 setback to
Titusville on Saturday.
On Saturday, Venice had its chances to
score but didn't connect.
Two days later against Gainesville, the
Lady Indians had no trouble connecting.
'A little bit better today," Venice coach
Sheldon Chamberlain said. "Not much
pressure from the defense so we had
chances to work the ball and were more
relaxed. The intensity was totally different
(today)."
"Today we got our first touches together
and won 50-50 balls. We needed to redeem
ourselves so we came out here and got it
done," said senior Colleen Murphy. "We
connected better today. Everyone followed
through on their runs and didn't give up."
It took just 10 minutes until Venice got
on the scoreboard as Jessica Lambrecht
lofted a ball toward the net. The ball

VENICE FALLS TO TITUSVILLE: Titusville scored
a goal in the 65th minute to edge Venice, 3-2, on
Saturday at Venice High's Powell-Davis Stadium.
The Lady Indians (8-4-2) fell behind in the third
minute as the Lady Terriers (9-3-1) scored off
Michaela Hahn's corner kick, who found a wide


open Miranda Leighton, who headed the ball past
back-up keeper Linzee Hellman.
Venice's starting goalkeeper Ashley Weaver got
banged up in their last match and didn't play.
The Lady Indians had many chances to score in
the first half but Titusville keeper Ashley Corbin
denied them each time. Venice had 15 shots and
Corbin had six saves.
Venice was a bit unlucky as junior Dana
LaRocque had two shots hit off posts.
In the second half, Venice tied the match with a

Just four minutes later, LaRocque had a shot
hit off the crossbar.

TARGET from Page 1A
Robinson, a stunningly
beautiful young woman,
was pleasant and apolo-
getic, but she said she
just could not bend the
rules."
Wilson said by this
time she was an emo-
tional mess so she left
the store.
"Devastated and feel-
ing all of my 67 years, I
climbed into the front
seat of my car, laid my
head on the steering
wheel and sobbed."
And that's where
Robinson found her
when she had a change
of heart.
"I had checked all of
our stores from Sarasota
to Fort Myers and dou-
ble checked our stock for
the tree,"Robinson said.
'After she left the store, I
checked everything
again."
Robinson said Target's
policy is not to sell floor
models until they go on
sale or until a certain
time has passed and
they are completely out
of stock and not going to
get any more.
With Wilson's story
weighing on her heart
and her tears fresh in her
mind, Robinson decided
she didn't care what any-
one said, Wilson was
going to have that tree.
"I told the sales per-
son to go get the tree
and bring it to the front,


and I ran out to the
parking lot to find her,"
Robinson said. "I was so
afraid she had already
driven off. It was a great
relief to find her still
here."
The tree was a large
table-top tree, which
would meet the need of
keeping it out of the way
of the 1-year-old
German shepherd
puppy. Plus it was the
tree Wilson's daughter
had led her to.
Not only did Robin-
son sell Wilson the tree,
but she gave her a per-
centage off as well and
placed the tree in Wil-
son's car herself.
"It was refreshing to
do something for some-
one," she said. "Target is
very community orient-
ed. Any time we have the
opportunity to go above
and beyond for our
guests, we are happy to."
When the tree was in
the car, Wilson turned to
Robinson and hugged
her -hard.
"I had her tears on my
shoulder," Robinson
said.
It will be a teary
Christmas for Lisa's fam-
ily, but their will be
smiles, too, as Wilson
reminds them how Lisa
led her to the tree.
"The tree is awe-
some," Lisa's 8-year-old
son said, and smiled.

be a lifeline for the city,
but it's up to voters to
make it happen. He
warned inaction could
have consequences.
"There is probably not
going to be a good
chance to have a tax in-
crease next year," Turner
added.
Next year is a pivotal
election year for the city.
In November three coun-
cil seats are up for elec-
tion, including the may-
oral seat. The seats are
currently filled by slow
growth proponent Mayor
Ed Martin, and Council
Members Sue Lang and
Ernie Zavodnyik.
"Generally, residential
growth in and of itself has
a hard time paying for
itself in terms of tax dol-
lars," Turner said.
"We have to deal with
the ability to sustain
what we have into the
future. From my per-
spective, even if you were
to try to maintain things
exactly as they are in


terms of our financial
establishments you are
going to lose as the years
go along because things
cost more (due to infla-
tion).
"If you don't decide
how you want to manage
that growth you are going
to end up short changing
yourself. You are going to
end up in a situation
where you don't have as
much money as you
need to continue to
repair your infrastruc-
ture, to continue to
maintain your parks, and
those sorts of things.
Critically speaking, we,
like a lot of other com-
munities, are losing
(financially) every year
because of the economic
situation we are in.
"We have got to do
something different to
sustain what we have
become. We can't just
stick our head in the sand
and say nobody else
come here."

Florida."
The proposed energy technology
training would take place in what is
now the vacant North Port Park of
Commerce, just off Interstate 75 along
Toledo Blade Boulevard. SCF, working
in conjunction with the city's existing
Entrepreneur Academy, would offer
courses in renewable energy and build-


thank the Salvation
Army, which spearheads
the substance abuse
recovery program, and
the volunteers who do-
nate time.
On the female side of
the recovery pod, each
woman will receive a
flower that they are
allowed to keep it in a
cup of water in their cells.
"Ishemal Katz, a local
folk musician, will pre-
sent a holiday musical
program," Scott said.
For the general jail
population as well as in
the recovery pod,
Christmas dinner will
consist of roast sirloin
beef, cheddar mashed
potatoes, sweet potatoes,
green bean casserole,
cranberry sauce, garlic
butter biscuits and a slice
of pumpkin cake.
"The philosophy of
the Sheriff's Office is that
people are sent to jail as
punishment not for pun-
ishment," Scott said.
"They come from our
own community, and
they are going to be re-
leased back into our
community. The more
programs we can do to
have them occupy their
time productively helps
us manage their time in
jail more effectively."
For example, for those
not in the recovery pod,
inmates can attend any
of several recovery pro-
gram meetings such as
Alcoholics Anonymous
or Narcotics Anonymous,
and a life skills program.

ing energy technology. Those partaking
of the "green" courses would be not
only students pursuing associate and
bachelor's degrees through SCF, but
engineers and construction workers
seeking certifications.
Bartolotta also proposed establish-
ing a business development center in
the same location that would focus on
attracting and mentoring new busi-
nesses. "Everybody hears about the


JAILHOUSE from Page 1A

"These programs help
them prepare for a lot of
things they should have
learned, but have never
learned," Scott said. "For
example, a lot of these
people have never
looked at the impact of
their actions on their
families or their victims."
There are one full-
time and two part-time
teachers provided from
the Sarasota County
School Board who teach
basic education to pre-
pare inmates to take the
GED.
"It isn't just lock 'em
up and release them out
the door," Scott said. 'All
of our operating hours
are filled with education,
recreation or program-
ming."
And Christmas Day
will be no different for
the 837 inmates in the
jail. Meals, head counts,
recreation, etc. will con-
tinue, and families can
visit from 8 a.m. to 10
p.m.
While family mem-
bers cannot bring gifts


for inmates to the jail,
they could have chosen a
book and sent it in care of
the chaplain ahead of
time. After it is appropri-
ately checked for contra-
band, it is given to the
inmate with the under-
standing that it will be
donated to the jail library
once the inmate is
released. Families can al-
so make deposits into in-
mate commissary ac-
counts for food items,
candy and toiletries.
So while Christmas
behind bars may not be
what anyone dreamed
of, it will be a special day
because of those who
volunteer their time and
talents.
"One of the great
things about this com-
munity is the number of
people who volunteer
their time and services,"
Scott said. "I have a vol-
unteer list of well over
100 people to provide
programs for the in-
mates."

new businesses that fail in their first
three to five years, and a lot of that has
to do with training," Bartolotta said.
"We'd like to give them skill sets and
improve the opportunity for them to
succeed."
The other half of the collaboration, a
showcase of green technology, would
be built on land near SCF's South
Venice campus and feature classroom
demonstration projects of environ-
mentally friendly building, landscape
and design techniques and products.
The city would contribute by designat-
ing 15 acres, an as-yet-unidentified
swath of land from the surrounding
West Villages area, to SCF for the col-
lege's expansion.
Lars Hafner, SCF president, empha-
sized to the board that Wednesday's
presentation was specifically to "get
(the board) familiar with the concept,"
and that additional details, such as a
specific projected cost and benefit to
SCF, would be presented down the
road.
But he agreed with Bartolotta's sum-
mary of the key potential advantages to
SCF: attaining more land to accommo-
date the Venice campus's explosive


growth, an opportunity to have a strong
presence nearer to 1-75 where SCF
would be more accessible, and the cre-
ation of "feeder programs" for SCF's
proposed new bachelor's degree in
energy technology.
Meanwhile, some North Port city
commissioners say the potential col-
laboration promises to meet many of
the city's needs and position it as a
leader in green technology.
'All the devil's in the details, but as
far as what the plan is, it's very exciting,"
said David Garofalo, commission chair.
"We have so much potential in North
Port for expansion of facilities, for
growth, and in terms of our median age
(37). The sky's the limit. It's time for us
to thrive."
"The nation as a whole is aspiring
toward this green technology aspect,"
said Commissioner Mike Treubert.
"But the training that's available
for it, from what I understand, is very
hit and miss. So it would be benefi-
cial to any area to grasp a hold of this
future.
"Could it be North Port that grasps
ahold of that? Nothing is out of the
realm of where this city can go."

wonderful and enhance
the image of downtown,
but they recognize that
Venice MainStreet is not
a merchants organiza-
tion, something they
believe has been lacking
in this community. The
bottom line is that each
of them has a business to
run, and unless they are
successful, Venice will
look like empty store-
fronts.
Customers have to be
excited about coming to
such a unique downtown
where shops carry top-
of-the-line merchandise
- Vera Bradley, Brighton
- and sell everything
everyone needs.
"We are business
neighbors helping neigh-
bors by making referrals
to colleagues, improving
the good business com-
munity and benefiting
customers and visitors,"
said McGowan.
The intention is to en-
courage customers down-
town to take advantage of
free parking, shop and
enjoy wonderful rest-
aurants.
Welcoming new mem-
bers and ideas, Downtown
Merchants of Venice is
open to all merchants on
the avenues. The group
has informal monthly
meetings but no officers,
budget or money. They
share the expenses of
copying, printing and the
like.
They have held two
very successful projects:
Christmas in July and the
South County Food Pant-
ry fundraiser, encourag-
ing hundreds of people
to come downtown. A
new project is planned
for March.
John Ryan, president
and CEO of the Venice
Area Chamber of Com-
merce, offered support
and encouragement as
his organization does to
all sorts of business orga-
nizations that are pre-
pared to generate more
business for themselves.
Venice MainStreet is
predominately a volun-
tary organization work-
ing as a group to bring
people to downtown and
Venice in general.
"We think it is great,"
said KC Quaretti-Lee,
MainStreet executive di-
rector. "Who better to
plan sidewalk sales than
the merchants? Taking an
event and improving on
it is wonderful."
MainStreet is already
working with the Venice
Art Center on similar
projects to bring people
to Venice.


"We all need to work
together and support one
another with, the end
result being a vibrant,
alive and thronging
downtown," said Quar-
etti-Lee.

SUN CORRESPONDENT


While enrollment at Sarasota
County's elementary, middle, high and
alternative schools is projected to stay
flat next year, the county's 10 charter
schools expect to grow by almost 18
percent, according to estimates from Al
Weidner, the district's deputy chief
financial officer.
In fact, charter school growth will
account for more than half of the dis-
trict's projected enrollment increase
through 2014, Weidner's projections
show.
"I think it's nothing more than
parental choice," Weidner said. "We're
taking in a lot of private school students
because the economy is like it is. And
charter schools are continuing to grow
in number."
This is the first year in three years
that enrollment has not declined in
Sarasota County schools, with 41,520
total students enrolled. Next year,
Weidner projects enrollment at
42,131, with almost all of the 611-stu-
dent increase coming from charter
schools.
While the entire district's enrollment
is projected to grow 5 percent by 2014,
to 43,689, charter schools are expected
to grow more than 31 percent over the
same period, from 3,695 to 4,847.
Weidner said some of the increase
might be due to overly optimistic pro-
jections from charter schools because
Sarasota County caps its charter school
funding at the charter schools' projec-
tions. But he said much of their project-
ed increase is likely to come to fruition.
The counties' two Imagine Charter


Schools one in North Port and the
other in Palmer Ranch account for
most of the projected charter school
enrollment increase. Imagine in North
Port will be adding a full grade level
next year and is projected to grow from
637 to 740, then level off at around 800
for the next four years.
"I wouldn't say that the private
school arena has boosted our enroll-
ment quite that much, because there
just aren't that many private schools in
North Port," said Imagine principal
Justin Matthews. "The largest part of
our success is that families in North
Port feel this is a place where they want
their kids. Parents see this as a viable
alternative to regular public schools."
Imagine in Palmer Ranch is in its first
year and, while gradually adding grade
levels, expects to grow from 293 to 684
in 2011 then level off at 794 for the next
four years.
Island Village Montessori, which
covers both elementary and middle
schools, projects a 32 percent enroll-
ment increase by 2014, from 417 to 552.
And the Leadership Academy of Venice
expects to grow almost 15 percent in
the next five years, from 287 to 330.
Three North Port schools are expect-
ed to post the highest enrollment
increases among traditional schools
over the next five years.
Atwater Elementary, which just
opened this year, is expected to grow 21
percent, from 686 to 833 students.
Heron Creek Middle School's enroll-
ment is projected to grow by more than
20 percent over five years, from 1,176 to
1,418. Woodland Middle is expected to
grow 18 percent, from 767 to 907 in
2014.

Corbin Bleu was her


dream come true


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


The third time was the charm.
Nokomis resident Morgan McDermott, 14, was in Fort Lauderdale recent-
ly to meet her idol, singer and actor Corbin Bleu of "High School Musical"
fame, aboard the newest Royal Caribbean luxury liner, Oasis of the Seas.
Earlier attempts at a meeting failed because of logistics or illness, her
mother, JoAnn McDermott, said.
"It just all worked out this time," she said.
Morgan was a guest of the Make-A-Wish Foundation during a launch
party and cruise Nov. 30-Dec. 1, which doubled as a fundraiser for the
foundation.
With her were her twin sister, Megan; brother, Matthew, 17; father, Dave,
and her mother.
Both girls have chronic bronchopulmonary dysplasia, which is a result
of their premature births. They were born at 24 weeks.
"They weighed 1 pound, 4 ounces when they were born," JoAnn said.
"They were both in the hospital for seven months and then had trach
tubes and ventilators."

Agriculture Literacy Day is set for March 23


FROM FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF
AGRICULTURE AND CONSUMER
SERVICES

The seventh annual Florida Agricul-
ture Literacy Day is scheduled for
Tuesday, March 23, and Florida agricul-
ture industry volunteers are invited to
read a new children's book written in
honor of the event.
"Green Florida Farms" is a rhyming
book developed this year by the Florida


Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services and is a sequel to
last year's Agriculture Literacy Day
book "These Florida Farms!"
Gary Seamans and Mike Wright, of
the department's division of marketing
and development, wrote and illustrat-
ed both books.
In "Green Florida Farms," students
learn how Florida farmers continue to
develop "green" environmental prac-
tices that conserve the state's natural


resources while providing food, fiber
and other agriculture products for
Floridians and their trading partners.
Registration for Florida Agriculture
Literacy Day begins in January, and
online registration will be available on
Florida Agriculture in the Classroom's
Web site at www.agtag.org. Books,
lessons and packets for teachers and
bookmarks and other materials for stu-
dents will be sent out in February. The
deadline to register to read on Florida


Agriculture Literacy Day is March 12.
Florida Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services employees,
University of Florida IFAS extension
agents, 4-H agents and master garden-
ers, Florida Farm Bureau members,
Florida Cattlemen and Cattlewomen
members, Future Farmers of America
teachers and students and other agri-
culture industry representatives are
asked to schedule their classroom visits
at least two weeks before their readings.

figure skater Michelle Kwan; Shawn Johnson, four-
time medalist in women's gymnastics at the 2008
Summer Olympic Games and "Dancing with the
Stars" champion; and 12-time Olympic medalist
swimmer Dara Torres.
"It has an ice rink," JoAnn said.
Weighing in at 225,282 tons, it also has seven
"neighborhoods," including a Coney Island-style
boardwalk with a carousel, which the girls were
able to ride.
Close call
JoAnn is a stay-at-home mom because the girls
need so much care. Dave works for Randy Cook at
Cook Spring Co. in Sarasota.
"He has helped us numerous times," JoAnn said.
"I can't describe all that he has done."
One or both of the girls are in the hospital at
least once a year. The parents have good insurance
but still need to pay $500 a month out of pocket for
the medicine the girls need.
"The hardest part is dealing with the insurance
and the bills," she said. "We don't qualify for any
help, but at least we have good insurance."
The girls were on Medicaid until Dave got a raise
and they were taken off the list.
In the eighth grade at Laurel Nokomis School,
both girls caught swine flu this fall when another
student was diagnosed. Notified by the school,
JoAnn was on the alert and they took the girls to the
doctor as soon as one had a fever.


"It could have killed them," she said.
Within days, one girl was hospitalized and the
whole family had swine flu.
"When one is home and one at the hospital, it is
tough," JoAnn said.
Despite the trials of caring for two children with
such severe problems, the upbeat mother is grate-
ful for what they do have and for son Matthew.
"Matthew is such an amazing brother," she said.
"He is going to be a fifth degree black belt in tae
kwon do. He literally got shoved aside when they
were young, so Grandma scooped him up and took
him to tae kwon do."
With hundreds of medals, he has been state
champion in his age and weight class and been to
several Junior Olympics events.
"Learning self-discipline and self-control taught
him to accept his sisters," she said.
The girls are very close and worry about each
other when separated, as they must be if one has to
be in the hospital.
"'I have a hard time breathing without Megan,'
Morgan said one day," JoAnn said.
The girls are educable although not likely to ever
be able to live on their own, JoAnn said. They are
about 4 feet 6 inches, which is as tall as they will be,
and they have tiny feet size 1 and are not
expected to grow any larger. Morgan has one leg
that is longer than the other and had knee surgery,
but it didn't work.
"I am blessed," she said. "It could have been way


worse. They could have had cerebral palsy but they
never had it. And they are happy for the most part.
They will be 15 three days after Christmas."
The girls got their wishes, but this whole family
was blessed with lots of love.

The Faces of Need
Despite public and private efforts, countless area families and
individuals are living hungry, homeless, sick and hurting. Our
community continues to experience profound impact from the
economic recession. The need for assistance dramatically rises every
day, exposing the fear, stress, loss of personal dignity evident on
the faces of people in our community who are desperately in need.

How can you help?
Since the year 2000, the Season of Sharing fund has been committed
to collecting and distributing funds to agencies that disperse monies
on an emergency basis with no red tape and no administrative fees.
All of the money 100% goes directly to those who need it most.

This year, the need is greater than ever in our community. Please join in
helping those in need. Make your donation at www.CFSarasota.org.

Enjoy Christmas season at

Gasparilla Inn on Boca Grande


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Blending old Florida
tradition with guest
rooms fit for presidents,
the Gasparilla Inn is
offering a special holiday
experience inspired by
the "12 Days of Christ-
mas."
With a guest roster
that reads like a Who's
Who of industry and pol-
itics, the nearly century-
old inn with the magnifi-
cent views has hosted the
George Bush family,
Harvey Firestone, Henry
Ford and Katherine Hep-
burn.
Listed as a National
Historic Landmark re-
sort, the inn is located on
Boca Grande, between
Charlotte Harbor and the
Gulf of Mexico.
There are 140 rooms
and suites within the inn,
which is owned by the
William Parrish family.
The Twelve Days of
Christmas promotion is
designed with families in
mind and runs through
Jan. 1.
"For many families,
convening at the inn
each Christmas has been
a tradition for genera-

tions," said Jack Damioli,
president and general
manager of The
Gasparilla Inn & Club.
"The resort offers all the
favorites of the season,
from family dinners and
festive decorations to
Christmas caroling and
gingerbread house deco-
rating."
Guests will have the
opportunity to decorate
gingerbread houses, go
caroling or simply kick
back and enjoy the
beach. There will be a
Teddy bear tea for chil-
dren, readings of "Twas
the Night Before Christ-
mas," films relating to the
holiday season each
afternoon and in-room
breakfast service Christ-
mas morning.
That afternoon, guests
can enjoy more films or
football before a classic
Christmas feast in the
hotel's main dining
room.
For those who prefer a
more casual setting, din-
ner also will be served in
the inn's Pink Elephant
Restaurant.
Several churches on
the island offer Christ-
mas Eve and Christmas
Day services just minutes


from the inn.
Between Christmas
and New Year's there will
be a sandcastle contest,
the opportunity to tour
the inn's kitchen and to
watch a drive-in movie
from one of the resort's
golf carts. Add in spa
time at the resort's spa,
down time at BZ's bar
and then the final count-
down on New Year's Eve
- also at BZ's.
The fitness center will
be open daily so guests
can keep even with the
calories served by up the
inn's award-winning
chef.
Other activities in-
clude sport fishing in
Boca Grande Pass, which
is the site of many major
tarpon tournaments;
swimming in the family
pool or croquet on the
USCA-certified lawn.
Holiday shopping is
close at hand in the
charming shops and
boutiques of the Village
of Boca Grande.
Rates begin at $375
per room per day, based
on double occupancy,
plus daily service charges
and taxes.

Holiday fire safety tips


FROM SARASOTA
COUNTY
COMMUNICATIONS

Holiday celebrations
may put a home at risk
for fire. To get through
the holiday season safely,
Sarasota County Fire
Chief Kenneth Ellerbe
suggests following these
important safety tips:
Place candles securely
in non-tip candle holders
and well away from any-
thing that could catch fire.
Don't leave candles unat-
tended, and blow them
out before leaving the
room or going to sleep.
Use flame-retardant
or non-combustible cos-
tumes and decorations.
Supervise children
and keep them away
from matches, lighters

and candles.
When cooking, keep
an eye on the range.
Three of every 10 report-
ed home fires start in the
kitchen, more than any
other place in the home.
Remember too, drinking
and medication can im-
pair your judgment.
Make sure there's a
fire extinguisher in the
kitchen and every mem-
ber of the household
knows how to use it.
Provide smokers
with large, deep, no-tip
ashtrays. Empty ashtrays
often and wet contents
before dumping them.
After a party, check cush-
ions and furniture for
smoldering cigarette
butts.
Buy a fresh tree that
does not have shedding


needles. Cut the trunk at
an angle and install the
tree in a large, deep non-
tip stand well away from
fireplaces, exits and heat
sources. Ensure the tree
has a constant supply of
water; check it daily.
Use a flame-retar-
dant artificial tree if you
are not using a live tree.
Throw away light
sets that have cracked or
frayed cords or loose or
damaged sockets.
Unplug all decora-
tive lights before leaving
your home or going to
bed.
For more information
on keeping your family
safe for the holidays, call
the Sarasota County Call
Center, 861-5000, or visit
the county's Web site at

SCOLIOSIS IN CHILDREN


DR. DAN BUSCH, DR. ERENE ROMANSKI
CHIROPRACTOR
In your concern for your child's health
and well being, you want to make sure your
child is not "growing the wrong way."
Scoliosis or curvature of the spine is an
example of this hazard. Through poor posture
habits or other causes, the unnatural curving
of the spine may lead to straining of muscles
and ligaments or the crowding of internal
organs and impaired circulation.
Your doctor of chiropractic is a specialist
in body mechanics and in particular of


problems affecting the spinal column and the
body's nervous system. Abnormal curvature
and other spinal problems that begin to
appear in childhood and adolescence, such as
chronic back pain, often lead to more serious
problems in adulthood. That's one reason
why regular checkups are recommended by
your doctor of chiropractic.
If you think your child may have a
posture problem that needs correcting, make
an appointment for examination and
treatment.

Top tips for sun-proofing your eyes


BY ALISON JOHNSON
DAILY PRESS (NEWPORT NEWS, VA.)

Good-quality sunglasses are the best
way to protect your eyes from damag-
ing rays that can lead to vision prob-
lems and cancer. Here are some tips:
Read the label. Sunglasses should
block 99 to 100 percent of both types of
ultraviolet rays UV-A and UV-B -
and most high-energy visible radiation,
or HEV rays.
Don't go too cheap (even for kids).

Celebration Centerpiece

is a perfect gift

FROM VOLUNTEERS FOR
AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY

If you have a friend or family member who has been
touched by cancer, the Cattle Barons' Ball has the per-
fect gift idea to celebrate the life of that loved one.
This year's American Cancer Society fundraiser is
featuring the Celebration Centerpiece as a way to
commemorate anyone who has faced the deadly dis-
ease.
"This can be a wonderful holiday gift that allows
the giver to be anonymous or to express their senti-
ments openly about someone touched by cancer,"
said Laura Dorsey, chair of the Celebration Center-
piece committee for the Cattle Barons' Ball.
Centerpieces will be placed on every table at the
February event, and each one will reflect the life of a
unique individual.
Celebration Centerpieces are available for pur-
chase by anyone and can be designated as holiday
gifts. A gift announcement will be sent to the recipi-
ent, inviting them to personalize the arrangement
prior to the event.
Tickets to the Cattle Barons' Ball cost $100 each.
Centerpieces can be designated for your group's table
by contacting Laura Dorsey at 342-5005. For individ-
ual or group ticket reservations, call Kelly Pickering at
484-3500.

FRAN VALENCIC
SOCIAL COLUMNIST

On a whim I
decided to travel
to Cleveland,
Ohio, before
Christmas to
visit my mom. AirTran
offered a good flight and I
decided to go for six days.
Maybe I'd even see some
snow.
When I mentioned my
trip to Andy Britton, he said
C.J. Fishman, Steve Harner
and he would be there at the
same time. They were going
to the Cleveland Browns-San
Diego Chargers football
game.
"We have an extra ticket,"
he said.
"May I buy it?"
"That would be no prob-
lem," he replied.
When I arrived at the
Akron-Canton Airport and
got my rental car, the radio
was set and Perry Como was
singing "There's No Place
Like Home for the Holidays."
Brenda Lee was "Rockin'
Around the Christmas Tree."
I felt great.
The day was sunny and
pretty, but I'd forgotten how
cold 32 degrees is.
The following afternoon
my mom and I had a good
visit and a nice lunch at the
Red Chimney in Slavic
Village. It's her favorite
restaurant.
On Sunday morning the
weatherman announced a
28-degree high for the foot-
ball game. I wore four layers,
furry boots, socks, two
scarves, a hat and gloves.
Needless to say, I expended a
great amount of energy just


home again

to get dressed.
I got to Cleveland Browns
Stadium first. C.J. came to
the seats next. He was eating
a turkey leg. Then Andy and
Steve came.
As the game progressed,
the weather got colder and
colder. The Jumbotron
showed 22 degrees. While we
cheered and shouted and
Andy even danced we
covered more and more of
our faces. Andy shouted, "No
more timeouts, it's too cold."
It looked like the Browns
would tie.
"Do we really want over-
time?" I asked. In chorus, I
heard a loud, "No." The
Browns lost, but we had a
fun time and parted saying
we would see each other in
Venice in a few days.
It took me almost 20 min-
utes with the car heater at
full blast to warm up. "Why
on earth do people live in
this cold weather?" I thought.
I was staying with my
friends Jim and Kathy in
Walton Hills, Ohio. After I got
there from the game, we had
a nice dinner and a warm
drink in front of the fireplace.
My staying with friends is
much easier for my mom.
Early the next morning I
received a phone call that
my mom had fallen and an
ambulance took her to St.
Vincent Charity Hospital. As
soon as I got there I learned
my mom had fractured her
hip and needed surgery. We
waited 36 long hours for the
procedure. My mom came
through with flying colors.
And then the vigil began.
My mom's breathing
became a major problem.
They gave her a breathing
tube, which she hated, and
she needed to be restrained.
After 16 hours the doctors
removed the tube and need-
ed to put my mom on an
oxygen machine.
Her breathing issues mul-
tiplied and got progressively
worse. She went into a deep
sleep for five days. We wait-
ed, monitored and hypothe-
sized about what was wrong.
The staff used every

machine they could use to help
her breathing. Why wasn't she
responding? How could we fix
it? I wondered if my mom
would survive.
I didn't know if she heard me
or knew I was there. I prayed
the rosary out loud for her. My
mom always told me, "I pray
the rosary every day and the
first 10 Hail Marys are always
for you."
This time, I said, "Mom, I'm
praying the rosary, and the first
10 Hail Marys are for you. "
I sang songs for my mom in
both English and Polish. I
amazed myself by remember-
ing the Polish ones. I talked to
her in English and Polish, hop-
ing one would kick in.
My heart broke watching
her. The nurses, doctors and
everyone I met worked fever-
ishly trying to help my mom.
"We treat her as if she was
our parent," one of the doctors
said.
After 72 hours the first bit of
good news: "There is an
improvement in her numbers."
She continued in her deep
sleep. She thrashed her legs,
seeming to want to scream,
opened her eyes and seemed to
want something. I felt helpless.
Christmas music played in
the background. The Hallmark
Channel played continuous
Christmas movies. The

Cleveland Browns beat the
Pittsburgh Steelers. The high
temperature for the day was 15
degrees but the wind-chill fac-
tor was equivalent to 15 below
zero.
I thought a lot about Mary,
the mother of God, living by
faith. Here I was. When would I
go home? When should I call
Bob Mudge? Would I be home
to write a Christmas column?
Would I have photos to turn in
for my page? I was living by
faith. As I thought about it, in
the background I listened to
Gene Autry singing "Rudolph
the Red-Nosed Reindeer."
The next day was no differ-
ent. I got to the hospital and
my mom still had the mask
and was still on the machine
and was still sleeping.
"Hi, Mom," I said to her.
She opened her eyes.
"Get me out of here," she
shouted.
"Everyone is working as
hard as they can to make that
happen, Mom," I replied.
Mom fell into a deep sleep
again.
The vigil continued. On day
five my daughter, Shari, and
granddaughters, Tali and
Mariska, arrived in Cleveland. In
my heart, I felt that if my mom
heard Shari's voice, things would
change. Those two have always
had a special bond of friendship.


I left Shari with my mom
still asleep and took the girls to
lunch at Crocker Park. After
about two hours the text mes-
sage came: "She is awake and
talking."
Thirty minutes later I
walked into the intensive care
room to many happy faces,
including my mom's. She was
talking up a storm. It was as if
she had an epiphany and just
woke up wanting to know
what happened.
They took her off her mask
to clean it and, since she was
doing fine, they left it off. As she
asked questions and received
answers, she became more and
more herself. She even told the
technician he did a lousy job
drawing blood because he got
some blood on her pillow.
A few minutes later Will
walked in waving some papers.
"Numbers don't lie," he said.
"She's doing great."
Will had been taking care of
my mom since the surgery. He
had a big smile on his face.
Everyone from the unit was
giving my mom, Ms. Lottie, a
smile and a thumbs-up.
As I watched and listened I
knew what the angels mean
when they sing "Gloria in
Excelcis Deo."
Merry Christmas.

It is that circus

time of year
W hen "Venice, Winter Home of the Ringling
Brothers and Barnum & Bailey" was painted on
the sides of the train cars that carried the world's
largest circus across the country in 1960, Venice became
an overnight sensation.
Just four years earlier, in July of 1956, the great show had
limped home to Sarasota, nearly broke, midway through its
Pittsburgh run. It was the end of the tent show era. The
show would perform in downtown arenas rather than fields.
Where once the show needed 200 acres for its annual
rehearsals, the show could be contained on 15 acres at the
Venice Airport. Train cars were stored on the east side of
the Venice Depot. Rehearsals went on in the then-new
Venice Circus Arena.
The animals could be seen from outside the cyclone fence
and the world premier of the great show would be held in
Venice to begin the annual tour.
The big show left Venice in 1992 but opportunities abound
over the next several weeks to see really good circus.
Jan. 6-10, the premier of the 148th edition of the Greatest
Show on Earth will be held in Tampa at the St. Pete Times
Forum and Jan. 7-10 and 13-18, Circus Cirquesa returns to
Venice for the second year. In February, Circus Sarasota will
erect its big tent at 12th and Tuttle for its 12th season, Feb.
12-28. Watch for the details in Let's Go.

Happy holidays

I look forward to keeping traditions alive during
the holidays. Each year our holiday meal is
dinner at a local Chinese buffet. Not only
do we eat until we are stuffed, but we do
not need to load and unload
the dishwasher when A'
we are through. I
But most importantly, we ,.z
create memories. Each
year we recall the meal '
from prior years and the
holiday songs playing in
the restaurant. As the
kids get older, quality
time is priceless.
Enjoy your traditions
this holiday season.
Happy holidays!

Chinese acrobats usher in the New Year at The Players

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
hinese acrobats are unique.
Since the closing of the Splen-
did China Theme park in
Kissimmee a few years ago, fans have
had to wait for a touring troupe to
arrive in the area or hope to catch
some on a TV show.
Dec. 29 to Jan. 2, one of the best of
the touring troupes will be in Sarasota
at The Players, performing nightly. The
Dec. 29 performance will benefit The
Players Performing Arts Studio, which
offers classes in all the dramatic arts to
children and adults in the area.
"We are thrilled to have them here
and that they chose to direct the first
night's ticket sales to benefit The
Players Theatre.
Practicing the 2,500-year old tradition
of Chinese acrobatics, the 24 members
of the Golden Dragon Acrobats have
taken balancing and tumbling to new
levels for 30 years. In addition to the
jaw-dropping feats, they will enhance
their 2-hour show with traditional
dance, colorful costumes and both
ancient and modern music of China. It.M.
is directed by Danny Chang and
choreographed by Angela Chang.
The troupe comes from Hebei
province, China. ,
The Golden Dragon troupe made its
Broadway debut in 2005 and was
nominated for a Drama Desk Unique .
Theatrical Experience Award as well as '
for Best Choreography and Best -
Costumes. The company has per-
formed in 65 countries. To learn more
about the Golden Dragon Troupe, visit
www.artfegan.com.
The Players is at 838 North Tamiami
Trail, Sarasota. They will perform at 7
p.m. Dec. 29 and at 2 and 7 p.m. all
other days.
Tickets are $32 per person for adultsI
and $18 for those 16 and under. Call
the box office at 941-365-2494 from

Orlando's HolyLand Experi-
ence takes its visitors back
in time 2,000 years
back to ancient Jerusalem, as
described in the Bible.
The experience begins the
minute you step into the walled
city's streets filled with bazaars
and street vendors garbed as they
would have been so long ago.
That visitors can step into this
world without enduring a 10-hour
plane ride to a land 7,000 miles
away, is even better.
The setting is quite realistic and
this city's walls and buildings are
positioned in such a way that
visitors do not see any hint of
present-day Orlando even though
it is just beyond the walls,
Instead they see actors garbed in
authentic garments mingling with
them in the streets, acting as
merchants and, in the HolyLand's
musical team Century, will recre-
ate many biblical stories.

well as the very layout of the city
of Jerusalem.
Among the displays is an exact
replica of the Garden Tomb where
the body of Jesus was buried and
the gold-topped columns from the
Great Temple so highly valued by
Jews. Other exhibits deal with the
Dead Sea Caves and other places
mentioned in the Bible.
The biblical museum opened in
2001. A year later, the Scriptorium
Center for Biblical Antiquities was
added, showcasing various reli-
gious artifacts.
Adjacent to the bookstore is a
space devoted to rotating or
traveling exhibits. That space
currently features "A Day in the
Life of a Monk."
The HolyLand is open Monday

Growth of The University BOOK
CPtfiIl pt


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
University is a collection of
colleges and people. In the
case of the University of
Florida, the collection began in 1906
when the university was founded in
Gainesville.
"Historic Photos of University of
Florida," a Turner publication, chroni-
cles the rise of the university from its
beginning days when its student
population numbered just 182, to
become one of the largest and most
important public universities in the
United States.
More than the home of Gatorade
and a winning football team, the
university has grown from a small
agricultural and teacher college to a


leader in medicine, engineering and
agricultural research among
other disciplines. Author
Steve Rajtar tells the story
in pictures depicting key
people and events over its
103-year history. More
than the birthplace of
Gatorade, the Universi- .
ty of Florida has made J
a positive impact on
both the State of /
Florida and the
nation.

British cowboy booked


by Circus Sarasota


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Cowboys and rodeos are a
Florida phenomenon, not
British. In keeping with the
theme of Circus Sarasota's 2010 show,
The Legend Lives On, starring Nik
Wallenda, British cowboy legend Vince
Bruce will be one of the show's fea-
tured performers.
While not actually a cowboy, Bruce
was raised in England, where he met
real cowboy Tex McLeod who per-
formed an act featuring his lariat and
other cowboy skills in English music
halls.
By the time Bruce was a teenager,
he too was playing the music hall
circuit, demonstrating his own prowess
with a rope.
By 1983, he was performing at half
time with the Harlem Globetrotters and


won top honors at the International
Trick & Fancy Ropers Association
convention. Bruce starred on Broadway
as The Roper in "The Will Rogers
Follies."
He has made the Guinness records
book twice because of his roping skills
and also has won acclaim for his work
with a whip.
Circus Sarasota opens its 2010
show in the big tent at 12th Street and
Tuttle Avenue, Sarasota, on Feb. 12.
It will play there through Feb. 28,
before heading south to Fort Myers for
its second season on the road, March
12-28 at the Gulf Coast Town Center.
Tickets are on sale now and half-
price for opening weekend shows at
both venues.

The Players Theatre has placed their
own 'art' along North Tamiami Trail
in Sarasota for the holidays. A 12-
foot tall red rocking chair, adorned with a
holiday wreath, faces the trail and will
remain there through the month of
December.
The chair was built initially by Players'
Technical Director Matt Nitsch and Scenic
Design Manager John C. Reynolds for a
Lily Tomlin skit presented during The
Players Senior Follies show in October.
"This incredible chair needs to be
seen," said Michelle Pingel, The Players'
managing director. "The Players is now
celebrating its 80th season and we
wanted to make a big happy holiday
statement. The chair is enormous but
whimsical and definitely eye-catching. It is
art, but it also represents the comfort and
warm feelings of the season a very
necessary reminder during these worri-
some financial times."
The inside of the Theatre makes a
statement as well. Volunteers led by Ron


Wheeler and Doug Nelson have trans-
formed the lobby with decorated trees,
wreaths and garland. In keeping with the
trailer park tradition of the current Players'
production of A Country Christmas Carol,
the box office window boasts a trimmed
Texas long-horn skull. Nancy Apatow, April
Glos, Eileen Hartman, Barbara Johnson,
Kaylene McCaw, Bob Nosal, Helen Pell,
Alana Ryder, Ken Shelin and Bob Trisolini
donated hours of their time stringing
popcorn and cranberries, and creating
tree ornaments. Also on the decorating
team were Players Studio students Amber,
Ashley and Nichole Altiero, Ellie and
Gwen McCall, Gracie Miracle and her
father Bill Heeb.
The year wraps up with unforgettable,
family-oriented performances by the
Golden Dragon Acrobats from China on
Dec. 29 through Jan. 2. Proceeds from the
Dec. 29 performance benefits The Players
Theatre.
The Players Theatre is located at 838 N.

The Greatest Show on Earth is back


14 BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
For 65 years (1927 to
1992), the Greatest
Show on Earth, the
Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey
Circus, wintered in either Sarasota or
Venice, where it held its annual premier
show before heading out on its yearly
tour. Owner John Ringling brought the
show to Sarasota in 1927. It moved to
Venice for the winter of 1960 and left
Venice in 1992, because the train tracks
could no longer support the weight of


the elephants and the train.
Beginning in 1968, Venice was home
to the red and blue units of The Greatest
Show on Earth.
Jan. 6-10, circus owner Feld Entertain-
ment will debut the Blue Unit's new
show "Barnum's FUNundrumSM, a
celebration of the life of PT. Barnum" to
Tampa. Barnum was a world famous
showman who owned one of the circus-
es purchased by the Ringling Brothers in
its expansion years, adding the Barnum
name to the Ringling name. That the
Ringling Brothers acquired countless


other shows without adding any of
those names is some indication of their R
appreciation of the unique talents of U
one of history's greatest promoters. a
This is the 140th edition of Ringling's
three-ring circus. Feld also owns the
red troupe and the Gold Unit plus
countless other entertainment vehicles
such as Disney on Ice.
Shows will be Jan. 6-10 at the St. Pete
Times Forum, 401 Channelside Drive,
Tampa, 33682. Shows will be at 7:30
p.m. Jan. 6-8; 11:30 a.m. and 3:30 and
7:30 p.m. Jan. 9 and at 1 and 5 p.m. on


SUN PHOTO BY KIM COOL
;ingling circus performers rehearsed the Blue
Unit show at the Tampa Fairgrounds two years
go. Imagine a motorcycle group racing around
he inside of that 16-foot orange sphere.

Sunday, Jan. 10. Tickets are $15, $ $20,
$25, $35 (VIP), $55 (Front Row), $85
(Circus Celebrity) plus Ticketmaster or
facility charges. Order by phone at any
Ticketmaster outlet, the box office at
the Forum or by phone to 813-287-
8844 in Hillsborough or 727-898-2100
in Pinellas.


The show goes on at Venice Theatre


PROVIDED BY VENICE THEATRE
2# A bout two-thirds of the
way through the
Opening night perfor-
mance of Venice Theatre's 10th
Anniversary production of "A Christ-
mas Carol," the building lost electrical
power. Roughly 2,000 other Florida
Power and Light customers were also
affected.
When the theatre's Executive/Artis-
tic Director Murray Chase was
informed by an FPL representative
that the power might not return until
10 p.m., Chase, his staff and volun-
teers needed to make a quick deci-


sion about how to handle the situa-
tion: end the performance early and
send the audience home or finish the
show?
Proving true the old theatre adage
that the show must go on, the the-
atre's technical staff located several
heavy-duty flash lights to illuminate
the stage and a small generator to
power up the keyboard for Musical
Director Michelle Kasanofsky.
During the ten minutes or so that it
took to re-group, the performers who
were on stage (a good number of
them still in elementary school) led
the audience in impromptu Christmas


Venice s Newest Air Conditioned Flea Market!


caroling. When the show resumed, it
was with no amplification, no sound
effects and very limited lighting.
Demonstrating his professionalism
and acting skills, Eric Watters (star-
ring as Ebenezer Scrooge) performed
his most dramatic scenes with
volume and clear diction that easily
reached the last rows of the theatre's
432-seat house.
Just a couple of minutes before the
company took their bows, the elec-
tricity came back on and the audi-
ence burst into applause.
The holiday spirit was palpable as
people gathered to visit in the lobby

afterwards.
Many comments were made by the
cast about how this was "the best
production of 'A Christmas Carol'
ever."
An audience member approached
Chase asking, "How much more do I
owe you for my ticket to cover all the
extra songs the cast sang while we
were waiting?" Dozens more positive
comments appeared on the social
networking site "facebook" as cast,
crew and audience shared their
enthusiasm for a job well done.
The Venice Theatre is located at
140 W. Tampa Ave.,Venice.

of the WEEK


Stefanie

Hussey



River City


Grill

SUN PHOTO BY SHARE DERRICKSON,
Stefanie Hussey's arm is adorned with WWII pinup girls. To her, they represent a time
when women were more glamorous and allowed to, "have curves." Hussey is a WWII
history buff and admires those of the "Greatest Generation."


BY SHARE DERRICKSON
SUN CORRESPONDENT
When co-workers of
Stefanie Hussey were
asked to describe her,
most of them said something like,
"How long do you have?" or "There
is no one word I wouldn't know
where to begin."
The Charlotte County native and
bartender at the River City Grill in
Punta Gorda can't be pigeon
holed. Her affect is that of the
more glamorous days of early
Hollywood a Marilyn Monroe-
esque platinum blond with just as
much moxy.
But while she can make you her
fittingly-named Cheesecake Martini
- of which she has invented and
perfected that even comes with a
graham-cracker-rimmed glass -
she can also mesmerize you with
her knowledge of World War II -
what led up to the war and how
she why she believes that was
truly the time of the "Greatest
Generation."
"They really knew what sacrifice
meant," she said. "And I love the
glamour and the romance of back
then. Women were allowed to be
curvy and didn't have to fall in that
category of what television says
women must look like today. And

they had Rosie the Riveter -
women stepped up to the plate and
showed what they could do."
A history buff, she comes alive
when she talks about those things
in our past that she said we must
remember and understand in order
to make good decision about our
future something she said she
will try to instill in her children -
when that time comes, she said.
The newly-wed is a self-pro-
fessed old soul something that is
beautifully tattooed on her left arm
along with graceful replicas of
famous pin-up gals that adored
WWII soldiers' lockers and the
nose art of B-25 Mitchell Bombers.
But she also has her own sense
of grace and style traits that
make her well suited for her job -
excellent people skills, wit, and a
great conversationalist. One day,
she would like to incorporate her
knowledge and appreciation of
past into a theme club. "I'm not
sure yet," she said. "I am happy
here," she said, adding that event
planning is one of her fortes and
uses that skill to organize River
City Grill events.
"I also like the idea of going into
business to help non-profits," she
said. "Mostly, I just want to be a
good person."

Live Maine lobster is one of the upscale items on the Coral
Rock Cafe's dinner menu.


Pasta is always a popular, and filling, choice.


The has a wide variety of choices from seafood, like
these mussels, to steak to duck to veal.


Coral Rock Cafe and

Sport City a winning combo


BY SHARE DERRICKSON
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Coral Rock Caf6 and its attached
Sport City is more than a
restaurant and a bar. It was
designed to be a place to go for any
reason and for any atmosphere a
cozy bistro with elegant dishes its tasty
bar food and a ball game in the Sport
City lounge play some pool with friends
in its family-friendly game room, dance to
some good old rock and roll, or sip an
exotic drink at their outdoor tiki bar.
Sport City opened in April of 1993
and the restaurant opened up in 1999,
Sean Mullen, the manager of both the
Coral Rock Caf6 and Sport City said.
Since its inception, the management
and owners wanted it to be a safe,
comfortable, casual, and quality
place to go.
Mullen said that it is a one-of-a-kind
experience and while there is much to
do, the food is one of its biggest draws.
"What I like about this place is the food
is great. I have been in this industry
almost all my life and eaten in a lot of
restaurants and traveled a lot and one
of the reasons I have been working
here for seven years is because the
food is so good."
Mullen said he avoids calling the food
high end because that has the connota-
tion of expensive and fancy. There food,
he said, is reasonably priced but some


of the dishes are seen in finer dining
restaurants. "Not many places have live
Maine lobster or serve veal or duck."
Coral Rock Cafe's warm d6cor has a
bit of an Italian bistro ambiance with
rich dark woods and softly-lit stained-
glass lamps. "It's a perfect place for a
romantic dinner," he said. Although it is
not large, there is an area big enough
for a party and it is a popular venue
for birthday parties and celebratory
dinners.
"We do have a variety of foods and if
you are not looking for a full dinner,
there is a bar menu that serves sand-
wiches. Let's say one orders lobster
from the restaurant side, the other can
order a fish sandwich from the bar side."
The atmosphere is as varied as the
menu. "A couple could have a nice
quaint dinner with a bottle of wine or
champagne, and then can go over to
bar area of Sport City and play pool in
the game room and have a beer or go
out to the tiki bar for a cocktail."
Most nights, Mullen said, there is live
music. "We have bands here from
Wednesday to Saturday evenings.
There is almost always something going
on here," he said.
"We have great dance music a bit of
classic rock and dance music done by
topnotch bands like The Crashers or
the Adrenaline Junkies."
Coral Rock and Sport City has

changed over the years with the bar
portion being called Sport City Billiards.
"We changed our name to Sport City
Bar and Grill and we still have an
emphasis on sports, of course. We have
all the games and it draws a good
crowd."
"Whatever the changes have been,


the food quality has remained the same
- it's still great."
The Coral Rock Caf6 and Sport City
Bar and Grill is located at 4560 Tamiami
Trail in Port Charlotte. They can be

Lady Managers of the Columbian
Exposition, also known as the
Chicago World's Fair.
In 1910, she brought her wealth,
power, influence and stature to the
area today known as Sarasota.
One of the first events celebrating
the centennial of her arrival in the
area, is an afternoon tea, featuring
Judith Leopold portraying Mrs. Palmer
on three separate occasions in the Log
Pavilion at Myakka River State Park.
An international traveler and wealthy
Chicago socialite, Palmer was the
widow of real estate developer Potter
Palmer who built the Palmer House
Hotel in Chicago.
Well accustomed to afternoon tea,
she likely entertained at tea in her
house at Spanish Point in what is
now Osprey.
Equally conversant with the local
cowhands, railroad men and politicians
in those days, she made decisions that
helped steer the course of Sarasota,
drawing her wealthy friends to the area
as did later arrival John Ringling,
although he was able to concentrate
more on appealing to their
cultural instincts with the construction
of the John and Mable Ringling

Afternoon Tea with Bertha Honore
Palmer will be served from 2 to 4 p.m.
on Jan. 21, Feb. 17 and March 16.
Tickets are $15 per person ($10 for

coincides with the 75th anniversary of
Florida State Parks.

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
T here is always something new at
the big theme parks. Over at Busch
Gardens Tampa Bay, the new
arrival is female white rhino born in the
night quarters of the Serengeti Plain
Nov. 11.
With a birth weight of approximately
100 pounds, the baby is the third calf born
to mother and father rhinos Mialeni and
Tambo, and brings the park's rhino total to
an even dozen. Nine of the animals are
white rhinos.
The new calf will soon join siblings
Malaika (October 2004), Dakari (August
2006) and Crash (May 2008) on the 26-
acre Serengeti Plain at Busch Gardens.

fewer than 170 in North American zoos.
The SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conser-
vation Fund regularly donates to the IRF,
