charges in

stabbing

STAFF REPORT

EDITOR'S NOTE: Racial slurs
and profanity appear as quotes in
this report.

Antony Reay, the 21-year-
old man who was arrested and
charged in connection with the
stabbing of two
men in South
Venice on Dec.
23, has received
more charges,
according to
Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office
reports.
At the time of Reay
Reay's arrest, he
was found to have two small
white pills in the right front pock-
et of his jeans. The pills were 30
mg tablets of oxycodone. Reay
admitted he did not have a pre-
scription for the pills.
"I should have taken them
today," Reay said, according to
the report.
"That's where I f---- up."
Reay also had a 2-inch pock-
et knife in his rear pocket.
About 8:30 p.m., the deputy
on duty told Reay he was going
to move him out of medical to
another part of the jail.
Upon hearing that informa-
tion, Reay lost control.
"What the f--- do I have to do
to get out of here?" he said
according to the report. "I guess
hit someone. F--- this s---, let's
do this."

Workers bring in a container full of dead fish days after a 6-inch sewer main cracked releasing more than
250,000 gallons of raw sewage into a lake just feet from Laurel Road.



Massive sewage spill in Nokomis


BY JOSH TAYLOR
ABC 7


People living in a Nokomis
neighborhood say they're still
dealing with the impacts of a
huge sewage spill and they say
they're still not getting any
answers as the smell of raw
sewage now mixes with the
odor of dead fish and animals.
They float rotting across this
once vibrant lake just feet from
Laurel Road off U.S. 41.
Sometime last week a sewer
pipe burst and more than
250,000 gallons of the raw
sewage went into nearby
waterways.
Neighbors say they called


county officials last Monday
but it wasn't for another 24
hours that work crews showed
up. Area resident Mark
Gautchier says it's been any-
thing but pleasant ever since.
"It has become more of a
nightmare. We have had a
major fish kill. Everyday we
have more and more dead fish
here in the lake," Gautchier
said.
Fish kill
Vultures circle and other
animals may have been effect-
ed too. Gautchier snapped pic-
tures of dead fish and a rac-
coon near the lake's edge. He
also took some as contracted


workers picked up some of the
dead fish recently.
"There was some men out
here Saturday with a boat and
they were picking up dead fish.
Buckets and buckets. A big 55
gallon drum," Gautchier said.
ABC 7 tried to contact those
in charge as well as county
leaders, so far unsuccessfully.
"I can't get information,"
Gautchier said. "I have made
calls. Right now I am dealing
with the state trying to get
information on how much
sewage was dumped into this
lake and what the bacterial
counts are. Will it ever be safe

Domestic violence doesn't take a holiday


BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR

Between Christmas Eve and
Dec. 27, five domestic abuse
incidents were reported in
Venice. Two of the five
occurred on Christmas Day.
Four of the five involved alco-
hol.
Jessica Hays, Safe Place And
Rape Crisis Center director of
community awareness, was
quick to stress that alcohol
doesn't cause domestic vio-
lence.
"The predisposition for
abuse is there before they
abuse," Hays said. "Alcohol is
just one of the triggers as is
holiday stress, financial strain
and visiting relatives among
other things."
One might think domestic
violence reports would
increase during the holidays,
but that hasn't been SPARCC's
experience.
"Usually the numbers in our
shelter are less because people
try to keep it together until
after the holidays," Hays said.
"We get really busy after the
first of the year."
Although this holiday sea-
son, numbers at the shelter
have increased.
Seventeen women and 13
children spent the month of
Dec. in the shelter. Six women
and four children actually spent
Christmas day there.
"Many women in the shelter
try to spend the holidays with
friends or family," Hays said.


DOMESTIC
VIOLENCE
WARNING SIGNS:
A push for a quick rela-
tionship
Jealous and possessive
Tries to control your life
Unrealistic expectations
Isolates you from friends
and family
Blames others for their
problems
Makes everyone else
responsible for their feelings
Says their feelings are
easily hurt
Cruel to animals and/or
children
"Playful" use of force
during sex
Yells and calls you
names
Rigid sex rules
Sudden mood swings
History of battering
Threats of violence
Threatens to reveal per-
sonal or damaging informa-
tion about you to your family
or employer

But for women who don't
have those options, Hays said
volunteers try to make
Christmas in the shelter as
special as possible. Volunteers
know its an important gesture
because it's such a difficult
time for the women who are
dealing with abuse, homeless-
ness and financial crisis.

While alcohol played a role in four out of five domestic violence cases
reported in Venice during the Christmas holiday, Safe Place And Rape
Crisis Center officials say it is only a trigger, not the cause.


"Some of our donors adopt
the mothers and their chil-
dren," Hays said. "They buy
gifts and wrap them, then
those gifts appear Christmas
morning as if Santa delivered
them. We always let the chil-
dren know that Santa doesn't
forget the shelter."
Donors also provide gifts for
single women without chil-
dren who are residing in the
shelter. Several of the donors
are from Venice.
Everyone at the shelter has
breakfast together on Christ-
mas morning.
"We want them to celebrate
as much as they can for the sit-
uation they are in," Hays said.
"We try to get feedback from
those who are staying here
asking them what they would
like to do."


Hays said this is really
important because all power
has been taken from the
women.
"If they have been abused
over time, they have been iso-
lated from friends and family
and they weren't even aware of
it," she said. "Now they have
three kids to try to protect and
provide for. We try to make it a
day of empowerment."
Hays, who oversees the edu-
cation and prevention pro-
gram, believes there is a solu-
tion to domestic abuse.
"If we can break the cycle
early, we can change this," she
said. "We have really come a
long way in 30 years. We hope
some day to put ourselves out
of business."

Housing


market


picks up

BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

The positive momentum of
the housing market continues
and early indications suggest
price stabilization, according
to the latest industry report
from the National Association
of Realtors. This area proved to
be in the top rankings compar-
ing median sales statewide.
Existing-home sales rose in
October, marking 14 months
that sales activity has increased
in year-to-year comparison,
according to data released by
Florida Realtors.
Sales of single-family homes
and condos in Venice rose 44
percent, from 92 (2008) to 132
(2009) according to statistics
provided by the Venice Area
Board of Realtors.

"We're getting those
early indications of
price stabilization."


Lawrence Yun,
National Association
of Realtors


The NAR reported the
Sarasota-Bradenton market
rated high in Realtor sales of
single-family existing homes,
with a 50 percent increase to
812 in October 2009 compared
to 542 a year ago. The statewide
median sales report was less,
with a 45 percent increase.
However, the median sales
price for this market fell 9 per-
cent from $169,000 (2008) to
$154,500 (2009), still signifi-
cantly less than the statewide
drop of 17 percent. A housing
industry analyst noted that
sales of foreclosed and dis-
tressed properties continue to
distort the median price.
Condo sales have been a
constant source of gloom, but
indications are there has been
a resurgence of energy with a
statewide Realtor sales in-
crease of 82 percent, and an
even higher 120-percent in-
crease in Sarasota-Bradenton.
Condo median sale prices
for October in this area were
down 28 percent compared to
a 29-percent decrease state-
wide. October prices fell from
$212,500 (2008) to $152,800
(2009), not as drastic as the
statewide median price drop to
$105,200.
Encouraging to buyers was
the attraction of 30-year fixed-
rate mortgages averaging a
4.95-percent interest rate last
month, a significant drop from
the average 6.20 percent a year
ago.
"We're getting those early
indications of price stabiliza-
tion, but we need a steady sup-
ply of qualified buyers to mean-
ingfully bring inventories down,
returning us to a period of nor-
mal, steady growth," said
Lawrence Yun, NAR chief econ-
omist. "That, in turn, would
help fully remove consumer
affairs which would then
remove consumer fears, which
would then revive the broader
economy."

phone number of a local
cab company handy or
avoid alcohol altogether.

liable if someone who
drank at their home ends
up in a driving crash while
impaired. To avoid legal
troubles, make sure

Elder domestic abuse
A woman suffering from a medical
condition that causes tremors reported
that her husband Richard Dorsey -
abused her, according to a Venice Police
Department report.
The victim, who is over 65 years of
age, told VPD officers that Dorsey has
physically and verbally abused her Dorsey
throughout the years of their marriage.
When officers arrived, they found the victim seat-
ed in a chair trembling. She said she hadn't taken the
proper dosage of her medication and because of that,
she was trembling more than usual.
The victim told police that on Saturday Dorsey
had grabbed her right forearm so hard, it caused
two contusions. The victim said on Sunday morn-
ing Dorsey punched her in the right shoulder four
times with his fist.
While officers were interviewing the victim, Dorsey
came home, and threw his keys across the room.
"What the f--- are you all doing here?" he yelled.
The officers explained why they were there and
the importance of getting the victim appropriate
treatment.
Dorsey told officers the victim was crazy and
should not be allowed out of a facility.
Richard Henry Dorsey, 69, of the 400 block Bimini
Drive, Venice, was arrested and charged with domes-
tic battery on a victim over 65. He received no bond.
Officers later met with the victim at Venice
Regional Medical Center. She told them she also had
been sexually abused. She said Dorsey photographed
her in sexual positions without her consent.
Safe Place and Rape Crisis Center was notified and
a counselor was enroute to the hospital as officers
were talking with the victim.
Domestic battery
At 3:16 a.m. Christmas Day, Venice Police Depart-
ment officers responded to a domestic violence call
at the Shell gas station, 101 South State Road 45A,
according to aVPD report.
The victim was the girlfriend of Keith W Ripich, 38,
whom she said pushed her by her throat which
caused her to fall and hit her head on the pavement.
The victim said he verbally abused her and poured a
bottled beverage on her.
An argument started between the couple, who had
been dating for about six months, at a local bar


because Ripich was angry because the victim had
spoken to another man. The victim said Ripich left
the bar and got a ride to the gas station by an
unknown person.
When they met up again at the gas station, anoth-
er argument ensued. It escalated and resulted in the
push to the pavement that left a raised bruise in the
hairline above the victim's left eye.
The victim chose not to provide a written state-
ment of the events.
When contact was made with Ripich, he con-
firmed that he had been at the bar with the victim. He
told officers, the victim became argumentative, so he
left the bar. He admitted meeting the victim at the gas
station and said during that argument a bottle of tea
was spilled on the victim by accident.
Ripich, of the 900 block East Jacinto, Venice, was
arrested and charged with domestic battery. His bond
was set at $25,000.
No shoving allowed
A Sarasota County Sheriff's Office deputy respond-
ed to a report of domestic battery in the 600 block of
Briarwood Road, according to the report.
The deputy separated the man and woman and
saw a reddened scrape along the inside of the
woman's right arm. It ran from just under her under-
arm all the way down to her wrist.
Crying, she told the deputy she just wanted to
leave, but the man pushed her to the ground. She
then grabbed onto a metal pole in the carport, but the
man tore her off of it, again attempting to shove her
into the house.
When the deputy interviewed the man, he said he
did not remember exactly what happened. He admit-
ted he was angry and lost control, but he said he did
not remember grabbing the woman. The deputy saw
blood on the man's left hand. The man said he cut his
finger but he wasn't sure how.
Christopher Randal Sullivan, 21, of the 600 block
Briarwood Road, Venice, was arrested and charged
with domestic battery. The report indicated alcohol or
drugs was involved. Sullivan received no bond.
Domestic assault
A victim called for assistance from the Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office concerning a family distur-
bance, according to a SCSO report.
The responding deputy was told by the woman
that her boyfriend and the father of her child had


threatened to cause her harm. She said he had been
drinking throughout Christmas Day when they began
arguing.
The boyfriend wanted to take the victim's car to
Tampa to try to find a place to stay. When the woman
refused, he became enraged and began damaging
things in the house.
The woman was holding their child during this
incident.
"You're lucky you're holding our baby or else I
would punch you in the head," the boyfriend said,
according to what the woman told the deputy.
The boyfriend then grabbed an object and held it
behind his back. The woman heard a clicking sound

Gambling for seniors


If you enjoy gambling and a
complimentary lunch or din-
ner you will want to visit Island
Oasis Arcade, 1950 S. Tamiami
Trail, across from Dan's Fan
City in South Venice. "It's a
very high class all new senior
arcade," said owner Greg
Leach.
Similar to those in Biloxi
and LasVegas the 58 machines
with LCD monitors feature
fruit genie, haunted house,
bugs and more.
Special events in the non-
alcohol and non-smoking
arcade are Tuesday's ladies
day, Thursday's men's day and
Sunday's Veterans Day.
Leach came from Swartz
Creek, Michigan with his fami-


ly 40 years ago. In Venice he
has owned an air conditioning
business and until recently
was a residential and commer-
cial builder. There are seven
employees and opening hours
are from 10 a.m. daily and
noon on Sundays. Call 412-
4558
Subway opens
The North Venice Subway,
3479 Precision Drive in
Shoppes at Laurel Square near
TIB Bank opened 10 days ago.
Despite the major local com-
panies having shutdown for
the extended Christmas
Holiday co-owner Kristine
Boden said opening day had
been much busier than
expected.
Boden with partner
Rebecca Baker already oper-
ate Subway at Nokomis Village
Shopping Center. Although
they had trained staff here for
the new location Boden will
probably hire a few more.
She said, "Everybody is very
excited to have another food
choice." Nearby Knights Trail
Caf6 has been open for more
than three years and the Laurel
Road Gas Station offers food
services.


With 32 dine-in seats and
providing take-out, Subway is
open 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven
days a week. Call 484-8999
Delayed
"Sorry our new store open-
ing has been delayed and it is
entirely our fault!" said a disap-
pointed Evan Duke. Referring
to the impending move of
Classic Creations in Diamonds
& Gold, to 2389 S. Tamiami
Trail near Crest Cadillac.
The design of the custom
made showcases was changed
by his family at a late stage,
subsequently delaying the
opening until March.
Contractors would have com-
pleted everything on time by
working 24/7, but have slowed
due to the delay.
"It will be our new home, a
new design and we want it to
be perfect," said Duke. "Our
t24-year-old store image of
making customers feel com-
fortable and casual is most
important and continues on
with this location change."
Brightstar opens
Following effects of the cur-
rent economic downturn on
the heavy construction busi-


ness Chuck and Collette
Russell operated in Romco,
Michigan they moved to
Sarasota and have started-up
BrightStar of South Sarasota
County, 400 S. Tamiami Trail
on the comer of Turin Street on
the island.
A full service healthcare
staffing agency, they provide
medical and non-medical
homecare to clients and sup-
plemental healthcare staff to
corporate clients. "We guaran-
tee compatibility," she said.
Each high caliber employee is
screened in all 50 states and
drug tested.
Russell emphasized their
care services accommodate
recipients from kids to life care
including children with special
needs to babysitting for visit-
ing grandchildren. Currently
they have three employees and
expect this to grow to 100 with-
in a year.
Services are provided 24/7
and Nurse practitioner Lynn
Clement RN manages the
office weekdays 8 a.m. to 5
p.m. Call 412-4070.

promises to make your mar-
riage memorable.
Closing this year we turn
again to forecaster Dr. Shawn
Snaith who says the bleeding
U.S. economy will stop in
Spring 2010 having shed 8.5
million payroll jobs. He
expects oil prices to remain
relatively stable with housing
starts bottoming out during
the year and rising to one mil-
lion by year end. Absorbing
excess inventory, housing
prices will likely continue to
fall through the third quarter.
Venice continues to appeal
to visitors and residents alike
while local businesses have a
resolve to meet the demands
of the shopping public.

See Button's view of what is
in store for 2010 in a future
edition of the Gondolier Sun.
Plans for the new year promise
big changes in traffic flow,
accommodations, more restau-
rants and businesses.

Reay then stood up and
punched the deputy in the
face.
The deputy tookReay to
the ground and gained
control of him with the aid
of three other deputies.
Neither were injured in
the incident.
Reay, of the 3500 block
Tundra Road, Venice, was
arrested and charged with
possession of a controlled
substance without a pre-
scription and battery on a
law enforcement officer.
He received no bond on
the battery charge and
$1,000 on the possession
charge.
Concerning his Dec. 23
arrest, further information
in how his crimes were
committed have been


released in a SCSO report.
It seems Reay tried
unsuccessfully to force his
way into the first victim's
home in the 3000 block of
Sunset Drive. The victim's
roommate woke him up.
The victim got in his car to
go look for Reay to see why
he was trying to get into his
house. The victim told
deputies that Reay pulled a
knife and began stabbing
him repeatedly in the left
arm and said "Get your
black a-- back into the car."
The second victim told
deputies he was walking
from his dining room to
the kitchen when he saw
Reay in his kitchen armed
with a knife. The victim
asked Reay what he was
doing in his home, and in


response, Reay attacked
him.
The victim said Reay
held a knife to his throat,
which caused a small lac-
eration. The victim asked
Reay what he wanted, and
Reay said he needed help
because black guys were
chasing him. The victim
said he would help Reay.
At that time the victim's
girlfriend walked into the
living room to find Reay on
top of the victim holding
the knife to his throat. She
yelled at him to leave and
Reay fled the area.
When deputies caught
up with Reay, he expressed
his hate for "n-......," and
asked deputies to release
him "to finish the job,"
according to the report.

It's possible the lack of

of holiday schedules.

OUR VIEW



School lines aren't easily shifted


What do you do when you have
two neighboring elementary
schools, one overflowing with
students while the other has empty
classrooms?
The logical answer is simple
enough: Reset the boundaries to
equalize enrollment.
The reality is that children aren't
tokens to be moved around a game
board. Families care deeply about their
schools, and they don't like to disrupt
the continuity of education, especially
in primary grades. They form attach-
ments to teachers and administrators.
School districts also are often a signifi-
cant part of the home-buying equa-
tion. Schools define communities;
they are a source of pride.
Everything about that is positive.
We want parents and students to care
about education and schools. No one
wants to disrupt that if it can be avoid-
ed.
That's why the redistricting propos-
al for Englewood Elementary School


and Taylor Ranch Elementary School
will be such a difficult sell.
In early 2008, the vaguest hint that
Englewood Elementary might be fac-
ing an uncertain future due to sharply
declining enrollment touched off a
tsunami of community opposition.
The school is in the center of the
Sarasota County section of the com-
munity- literally and figuratively.
The school board assured parents
the school would remain open. But
clearly, a long-term fix was needed. It
still is.
A boundaries advisory committee
composed of members of the
Englewood and Taylor Ranch commu-
nities looked into the issue in the past
year and came up with some options.
One was simple: Redraw the lines to
include sections of Englewood along
State Road 776 north of Manasota
Beach Road now a Taylor Ranch dis-
trict in the Englewood district.
It turns out families in that area care
deeply about their home school too. A


survey of parents showed near-univer-
sal opposition. When the question
comes to a public hearing early next
year, we can safely forecast another
parental tsunami.
What's to be done?
Englewood needs Englewood
Elementary School. Closing it should-
n't be an option.
But the declining enrollment is a
problem. It has dropped from 600 to
400 in a decade; further declines are
projected. The economics of school
operations will weigh on the school
board.
Due to certain constant costs for
support staff, utilities and mainte-
nance, the smaller school's per-pupil
costs is higher, $1,986 by district esti-
mates. The same can be said of Elsie
Quirk Library, which serves the small-
est population area and is the second-
most expensive library from a per-cus-
tomer perspective. Like the school, the
library is also vital to the small com-
munity.


Accountants don't factor in
things like the benefits of local sup-
port and involvement of parents in
a smaller, close-knit school. Those
intangibles help rebalance the
equation.
Still, the numbers keep getting
worse and the decline has to be
reversed. Grants may be found to
create a magnet-school program,
but that will come slowly.
There are a number of specific
options that could make redistrict-
ing less difficult for affected fami-
lies. Current Taylor Ranch students
could continue. Families new to the
area or those with children just
entering school could be sent to
Englewood. Busing might be offered
only to Englewood.
The populations of both schools
will need to be equalized, probably
starting next year. It's fair to assume
that some families will be unhappy,
but also that the school board will
cause as little disruption as possible.


A bad finish


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


As we are getting ready to
round the comer into a new
decade, this last year might be
one we wish we could forget. In
some ways it will be historic
and memorable. There was
some good, but a lot of very
bad.
The economy certainly took
its toll. We lost a lot of business-
es, likely the most significant
was Kmart, but certainly it was
not alone. The Veranda Inn and
Days Inn shut down, at least
temporarily. Places like Mel's
Diner left the scene. On the
good side of the business ledger
Tom Carney, owner of TJ
Carney's, bought the old
Landmark and is refurbishing it
into Pineapples. Sal Lacata,
owner of Sal and Tony's, is
opening soon where Casey's
Grill was. There is a new CVS
and Publix sort of alone on
Jacaranda Blvd. and Venice
Avenue. A couple of plazas, like
the new Galleria on East Venice
Avenue, are mostly empty.
Yet the big news of the year
was the Sunshine lawsuit and
the scandal attached to it. The
Venice city councilmen were
able to escape going to court by
having uninvolved councilmen
vote to settle out of court. The
city took the fall. It was a big set-
tlement costing well over a mil-
lion dollars, the biggest in the
history of the state of Florida by
far. And when you thought it
was over there were more inap-
propriate uses of e-mails pop-
ping up. We did get statewide
attention, just not the kind we
wanted.
The city completed and sent
on their comp plan, which
received low marks from the
state. The report had over 22
pages of comments about the
plan that was already years late.
The other big news that will
not go away is a long list of
problems with the airport. The
mayor, Sue Lang and a small
group of people have headed
down a very costly path to try to
downsize the airport. For a long
time they disguised their inten-
tions, but armed with new
reports they have gone full
steam ahead.
The Jet Center has been one
of the items in this storm of air-
port activity. The FAA has said
the lessee has a right to build
more hangars, and the city has
repeatedly gone against them.
It has gone to a Part 16 filing,
which is a quasi judicial ruling
with the FAA. Their actions,


causing so much negativity,
brought unintended conse-
quences, such as the FAA audit-
ing the airport. One of along list
of discrepancies found was the
Senior Friendship has no lease.
A couple of good things hap-
pening in that area include new
construction of a park next to
Sharky's, renamed Maxine
Barrett Park after the lady who
led the fight to have it not com-
mercialized. Maxine passed
away this year. Also, the city
reached agreement with the
county to extend water and
sewer facilities to Caspersen
Beach Park restrooms.
Also on the positive side, two
other costly lawsuits have
ended, one on short term
rentals with new language, mak-
ing these much harder to
obtain. The other was the
Sharky's lawsuit, which was a
hangover from an earlier coun-
cil. The city challenged the suit
filed by the owners many times,
again at great cost, and finally
settled. The city also hired a new
city manager, having driven off
the last one. The new manager,
Isaac Turner, has a lot of experi-
ence and has fit in well. One
wonders if he ever says "Why
did I get in this mess?"
There were some other good
things that took place. The
Nokomis Skyway, as I have
called it, finished after years of
being raised in order to allow
rescue boats to get to the back
waters of Dona Bay. I haven't
seen a rescue yet. The six lanes,
along with all the nice improve-
ments, have made downtown
Nokomis (also called Captain
Eddie's) look very nice.
Unfortunately, the landscaping
has been dragging.
Venice High opened a
Wellness Center, thanks in large
part to Wayne Hall and Mike
Miller. It is an incredible weight
room for the sports teams, par-
ticularly the football team. The
new high school plan was
unveiled, and work on the
school will start in the summer
of 2010. The high school and
middle schools went to seven
periods, which will save mil-

lions but has the unfortunate
consequence of burning out
some great teachers.
On the elementary side, we
had an elementary teacher sus-
pended who was accused of
abusing disabled children. She
went to trial and was found not
guilty.
Manatee Community Col-
lege was renamed State College
of Florida (SCF), not to be con-
fused with Florida State
College, University of Florida or

Permission not granted


ICLEI issues. I think the city should withdraw from the
International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives be-
cause it does have ties to the U.N., and its Climate Control
Initiatives could adversely affect the citizens ofVenice. We could
be required to do certain things to our houses before we sell
them, and our property rights will be affected by this organiza-
tion.
I believe the council members had no business joining it with-
out the permission of the people, and they used taxpayer money
to join this. And the same is true of Sarasota County; it also
belongs to this organization. We should not be having outside
groups suggesting or infringing on the rights of American citi-
zens. I think it was important that attention was given to this,
and I would like to see follow up and hearings on it. I think there
should be a referendum and the citizens of the county, and the
city of Venice and the city of Sarasota should vote whether or not
they want to belong to this.


No withdrawal. I do not
think the city should withdraw
from the International Council
for Local Environmental Initi-
atives because it has ties to the
U.N. Definitely not, we should
stay connected to the world.
Giveaway. I'm calling about
the city of Venice donating
$600 a year to a world organi-
zation. I'm against that be-
cause when we vote for coun-
cil and mayors, we vote them
in to manage our tax dollars,
not to give it away in a world
organization. Like in the past,
they've been giving it away to
consultants and lawyers rather
than concentrating on making
the right decision and spend-
ing the money for the good of
the city of Venice. There's so
much to be done and they're
letting the whole system go to
heck. There's plenty to be done
in the city of Venice rather than
giving the money to a world
organization. They should
mind their business and con-
centrate locally, not interna-
tionally. I'm very much against
it.
UNtied. The International
Council for Local Environ-
mental Initiatives does not
have ties to the U.N. It is not a
U.N. agency and the city


Let 'em


Have It


should not withdraw from it.
Tied. Your Guest Col-
umnist, Rick Magee, said that
ICLEI-USA is not the same as
ICLEI Global. Well, I read both
(Web) sites and they both have
the same goals restricting the
C02 and it doesn't matter if it's
USA or not. I wonder, is Rick
Magee employed by the city of
Venice? Does he get paid by
the city ofVenice? Or is this just
a volunteer position?


EDITOR'S NOTE: Magee is a vol-
unteer on the city Environmental
Task Force.
Home turf. I'm calling
about city involvement with
Climate Control Initiatives of
the U.N. The city of Venice
should have absolutely no
involvement with the United
Nations and its Climate Con-
trol Initiatives. We are under
the Constitution of the United
States, not under the control of
the United Nations. We should
not be giving up our sovereign-
ty to another power.
Give it up. Should the city
withdraw from ICLEI because
it has ties to the U.N.? Yes, we
should.. .immediately.
Save a spot. One of the
beauties of Venice is the small
town atmosphere. It's wonder-
ful to be able to place your
chairs, save a spot, come back
and they're still there. Please
do not restrict the placement
of chairs for the events. We love
it.
Wrong. They shouldn't be
allowed to leave their chairs
there. That's wrong. There
should be room for everybody,
not just a few people who put
their stuff out there for two or
three days in advance.
Working. I've only been in
Venice a couple of years, and at
first the chairs seemed strange,
but it seems to work. Let's
leave the early placement of
chairs just the way it is.
No help. I just called the
American Legion to find out if
it will be doing anything like
sending a card or a flower to
the senior veterans who are
confined to a nursing facility.
The answer that I got was
ridiculous. He said, well, we
have a free dinner for the vet-
erans. They can come in and
have that, and we do things for
the Veteran's Hospital. If my
husband is in the nursing
home, how could he get to any
of these things? I would like to
know what I am paying this
enormous amount of dues for?

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS

Don't fight another losing battle
Editor:
I didn't take any of the perks when I served on council,
including health insurance. As a retired "employee," I have
not asked for nor am I under the city health insurance
program.
So far as the current controversy is concerned, there is
no doubt that council members are city employees. They
have been paid with this nomenclature on their pay-
checks and are defined in every respect as city employees.
City employees are entitled to health insurance, period.
Council has recently changed the co-payment on pre-
miums for council members and retired council mem-
bers to match other city employees. I anticipate there will
be still another lawsuit if council changes this entitlement,
and the city will lose again.
Bob Anderson wouldn't recommend the obvious
when asked about this controversy, I assume because
council has a habit of ignoring his legal advice and hiring
other attorneys to lose the inevitable litigation that follows.

Nurses were tops

One of the biggest sto-
ries that also received
nationwide attention was
a hostage situation at TJ
Maxx. It was sort of a
bizarre story of a couple of
employees working with a
couple outsiders to pull off
a robbery. It all went bad,
and while the SWAT team
converged on the store the
not-so-smart robbers left,
only to be caught in the
days ahead. No one was
hurt. Unfortunately, that
same week there was a
killing just outside the

Indians split two games

Memories

from the 1940s

When I was 8 or 9 years
old, back in 1945 or 1946, my
family went to Middle River,
a tributary on the Chesa-
peake Bay in a suburban
Baltimore park named Island
View Park. You could walk
out an entire mile and the
water wasn't more than 3 feet
deep.
I remember when my
father made a fish holder out
of an empty orange crate. He
put a lid on it so we could
throw our fish in to keep
them fresh all day. We
dragged our floating cage out
to the duck blinds. The sand
was clean and smooth so it
was a pleasant walk in shal-
low water. The blinds were
where the white perch and
hardheads croakerss) were
located.
We always used live grass
shrimp, either buying them
or catching our own. We had
a homemade seine net that
we dragged through the shal-
low grass. We used cane poles
with a large bobber. It wasn't
unusual for us to catch 30 or
40 fish in one day. My father
would clean every fish.
Although he didn't fillet
them, he just scaled them,
cut off their heads and tails
after gutting them.
I also remember I would-
n't eat any. Unfortunately, my
mom would always overcook
the fish. This ran in her fami-
ly as her mom and grand-
mother also did the same. I
grew up always giving my
fish away or just releasing
them. I didn't realize what I
was missing until years later
when someone didn't over-
cook my fish. Isn't it great
how we remember the won-
derful and simple days of our
childhood.
Well, fellow Sheepshead-
ites, the time has come to say
goodbye until next week.

Hack. Contact him at

WILKINSON SELECTED TO ALL-STAR GAME:
Venice senior defensive end Brandon Wilkinson
was selected to play for the South in the Florida
Athletic Coaches Association (FACA) North-South
All-Star Classic on Dec. 22 at Sebring High.
Wilkinson, who was one of just six area play-
ers selected, did not participate as he graduates
early to enroll at the University of South Florida.

EIGHT VENICE PLAYERS SELECTED TO PAL
BOWL: Eight Venice High football players were
selected to play in the annual Brad Price
Memorial PAL Bowl, which pits the best seniors
from Sarasota County against Manatee County.
The PAL Bowl, which was postponed from
Dec. 18, will be held at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 8 at
Riverview High. It is run by Manatee and
Sarasota Police Athletic Leagues.
Selected for the Indians were center Brian
Magers, lineman Brian O'Leary, defensive back
David Williams, wide receiver Bo Ceravolo, quar-
terback Trey Burton, defensive end Brandon
Wilkinson, running back/defensive back Justin
Grant and tight end Beckett Wales.
Some of Venice's players have chosen not to
play in the game.


Venice used a 14-0 scoring
run to open the fourth quarter
as the Indians rallied for a 55-
44 win over Booker in the con-
solations of the Ram Jam
Classic Holiday Boys Basketball
Tournament on Tuesday night
at Riverview High.
The Indians, who opened
with a loss to Lake Howell on
Monday, will play Sarasota
Christian for fifth-place at 6
p.m., today at Riverview High.
"I told them we need to get
back to doing the stuff we were
in the first quarter," said Venice
coach Steve Cavallaro. "Making
the right reads and being in the
right spots."
After three quarters, Venice
trailed, 36-32 but the Indians'
Michael Smither and Joey
Boyle opened the scoring with
two 3-pointers in the first two
minutes to give Venice a 38-36
lead.
The Indians then scored the
next eight points including four
more from Boyle, a transfer
from Virginia, who has only
been with the team for a week.
Boyle ended with a team-
high 13 points for Venice.
"We are very fortunate he
came to us with some skills,"
said Cavallaro. 'As soon as he

going to be a big asset to us."
Venice led, 46-36 and kept
the scoring margin throughout
the fourth quarter as the
Indians outscored Booker, 23-


8, in the quarter.
Venice (4-4) jumped out
quickly against the Tornadoes
(2-9) by scoring the first 10
points, which included two 3-
pointers by Michael Smither.


The Indians led 18-10 after
one quarter as five different
players scored.
"The first quarter is proba-
bly the best we've played all
year offensively, defensive-
ly," said Cavallaro. "Everybody
was in the right spots at the
right times. Everybody was
doing the right things. We were
awful hard to score against and
we were taking good shots."
Booker pulled within, 22-18,
with 1:24 left but Venice went
into halftime with a 28-20 lead
thanks to two 3-pointers by
freshman Chris Hann, who
came in off the bench.
The third quarter was totally
different for the Indians as
Booker got hot from the out-
side.
The Tornadoes scored the
first 13 points of the third quar-
ter to grab a 33-28 lead. Senior
Brandon Fox sank three 3-
pointers and Stone Holloway
chipped in with four points.
"We went away from every-
thing we were doing," said
Cavallaro. "Give the kid credit
when they are going to knock
down a 3-pointer falling away
with a hand in their face, they
deserve it."

Venice's defense continued to stifle
Sarasota and grabbed a 17-11 lead with
41.7 seconds left on a three-point play by
Laura Hackett.
The Lady Sailors' Tylar Tracy, who was
quiet for most of the first half, scored the
final four points of the quarter to get them
to 17-15 at halftime.
"Probably the best 16 minutes of bas-
ketball we've played almost the whole
year," Flynn said. "We were moving, cut-
ting and the defense was good. Exactly
everything we talked about doing. Then to
turn around and come out like that, it's so
disappointing."
Then all things went wrong for Venice.
Sarasota went on a 13-0 scoring barrage
to grab a 28-16 cushion in five minutes.
The only points Venice managed was a
foul shot by Juliana Cavallaro, who led
Venice with 10 points.
The Lady Indians tried to battle back in
the fourth quarter but Tracy, who led
Sarasota with 17 points, scored six of her
points in the quarter.

Lake Howell 63, Venice 51
In the opening round of the Ram
Jam Classic, Venice had no answer for
6-foot-2 junior Isaac Torres, who
scorched the nets for 37 points, as the
Silverhawks downed the Indians, 63-
51, on Monday afternoon at Riverview
High.
Venice (3-4) only trailed 20-15 at
halftime but Torres caught fire in the
second half by scoring 28 points with
12 in the third quarter and 16 in the
fourth quarter.
"The kid shot exceptionally well,"
said Venice coach Steve Cavallaro.
"He had a really good night. That was
pretty impressive."
Venice led 4-3 with 6:38 left in the
first quarter after two foul shots by
Clay Burton, but the Silverhawks
ended the quarter with nine straight
points for a 12-4 cushion.
The Indians trailed 20-10 before
closing out the quarter with five
points to only fall behind, 20-15 at
halftime.
"They say you become a player in
the summer and you play basketball
in the winter," said Cavallaro. "We are
missing half of that. Until we can get


better and get more reps in, that's
where we are at."
The coach does see improvement.
"Defensively as a whole we got
more people in the right spots which
is really positive," said Cavallaro. "I
think offensively a lot of the time we
got the ball where we wanted to get it
but we didn't finish. Those are your
reps. You are not born a shooter."
The closest Venice got in the sec-
ond half was 24-20 after Zach
Christian hit a 3-pointer with 5:41
left. Christian led the Indians with 18
points including 15 in the second
half.
It's nice to win Christmas tourna-
ments, but Cavallaro knows it is not
the most important thing.
"I told our kids again don't take
your eye off the prize," said Cavallaro.
"Our prize unfortunately is the play-
offs. The beauty of the Christmas
tournament is we knew we would be
playing really good competition and
that's what we wanted. We really like
to win but this is the kind of talent
that is going to make us better for
playoffs, then this is all worth it."
Michael Smither and Burton


scored in double figures for the
Indians with 11 and 10 points,
respectively.
Coming off the bench to score nine
points was junior Joey Boyle, a trans-
fer from Virginia.
"Joey Boyle is a pretty good player,"
said Cavallaro. "He's got potential to
be very good."
Burton led Venice with seven
rebounds.

FALLS from Page 8A


the second quarter to open a double-
digit lead then hung on for a 57-49 win
over Palmetto on Monday morning in
the opening round of the Willie
Clemons tournament at Southeast
High.
The win also gave head coach John
Flynn his first win as Venice's new head
coach after the sudden departure of Joe
Whelton on Dec. 22.
"We will take the win but we have
more game than that," said Flynn.
"That was not pretty. We are not rotat-
ing on defense. We are not running our
sets. We are not doing a lot of stuff."
Venice (6-5) clung to a 18-14 lead
with 6:13 left in the second quarter
before rattling off eight straight points
- four each by sophomores Juliana
Cavallaro and Laura Hackett in a
span of less than two minutes to give
the Lady Indians a 26-14 cushion.
"We came out and played a zone,"
said Flynn. "We started getting a little
flat and sitting flat-footed so I said let's
go man to man and once we did that, it
changed the game. They didn't handled
the ball really well and it put some pres-
sure on them."
Cavallaro scored 17 of her team-
high 23 points in the first half as
Venice led 34-21 at halftime. Hackett
had 10 of her 14 points and 10 of her
12 rebounds in the first half.
Venice kept their lead but the Lady


Tigers (7-4) pulled within nine points
after three quarters, 45-36.
Giving the Lady Indians troubles was
junior Christina Smith, who finished
with 31 points.
Alayup with 38.8 seconds remaining
got Palmetto within, 54-49 but the Lady
Indians closed out the scoring for the
win.
"I had great efforts by the starters but
we need to have six, seven, eight, nine
and 10 (players)," said Flynn. "We need
to have two or three minutes here and
there from them. We are not getting
quality minutes from the bench."

and believed the object
to be her pocket knife.
That's when the
woman called 9-1-1. She
told the deputy her
boyfriend did not threat-
en her with the knife at
all, but it raised her level
of fear for her safety.
The woman's brother
said he heard the man
say he would punch the
woman in the face if she
weren't holding their
child.
The man told the
deputy that he destroyed
some of the woman's
property, but he couldn't
remember if he had
made a statement that
he was going to harm
her.
Travis Michael Korody,
23, of the 5800 block
Venisota Road, Venice,
was arrested and charged
with domestic assault for
making a threat which
instilled a well-founded
fear that violence was
imminent if law enforce-
ment action was not
taken. He received no
bond.
Christmas dinner
battery
Christmas dinner
turned ugly when a man
slapped his wife and
pushed and shoved wit-
nesses, according to a
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office report.
When the deputy
arrived on scene he met
the victim, her daughter
and brother, who all
admitted they were at the
victim's husband's house
for Christmas dinner.
The victim and her hus-
band have been separat-
ed for eight months.
The husband had
been drinking when the
couple began arguing.
The situation became
physical when the hus-
band slapped the right
side of his wife's face.
Other's present tried
to calm the man down,
but he shoved them
away. One of those fami-
ly members was pushed
to the ground.
The daughter, who
lives with her father, said
she saw her father slap
her mother. Her 19-year-
old brother attempted
to calm their father
down, but the brother
had left before authori-
ties arrived and wasn't
available to make a
statement.
The husband was
apologetic to the deputy
and said the situation got
out of hand. He admitted
to the pushing and shov-
ing and said he may have
struck his wife during the
altercation.
None of the people
involved required med-
ical attention, and there
were no marks or bruis-
es observed on the
woman.
Based on the state-
ments of all parties
involved, Richard Louis
Rossi, 57, of the 1300
block Devon Road,
Venice, was arrested and
charged with domestic
battery. He received no
bond.
Deadly weapon
assault
A Sarasota County
Sheriff's deputy respond-
ed to a disturbance in
the 200 block of North
Verona Street in Noko-
mis, according to the
report.
The altercation was
over an 18 pack of beer.
The victim told the
deputy that a man had
accused him and his
friends of stealing his 18
pack of Busch beer. The


found the man walking
in the area with the end
of a fishing rod in his
hand and an open blade
knife in his pocket. The
wooden stick he swung
at the victim was never
found.
The man's roommate
arrived on scene and
told the deputy that the
man had told her he was
going to go to jail tonight
and then
put the
open knife
in his pock-
et. She also
said he
broke the
wooden
stick by hit-
ting it on Nason
the ground,
but she didn't know
where it was.
Gerald Adrian Nason,
39, of the 100 block of
South Jessica Street,

and charged with aggra-
vated assault with a
deadly weapon without
intent to kill. He received
no bond.

GETTING BACK ON TRACK

AFTER THE HOLIDAYS


Now that the Christmas holidays are past, it's time to
take a firm hold on your lagging willpower and get it -
and yourself back on track. It's perfectly natural and
understandable to go "off diet" during the holiday season with
so many seasonal goodies tempting you to stray. But excuse
time is over now and it's time to re-establish those healthy
eating patterns and fitness routines that are normally a part
of your daily schedule.

Get moving. The holidays are a busy time of year, and all
those extra activities tend to leave little time for exercise.
Now that things have calmed down, ease yourself back into
a more active routine. Try taking a brisk walk on a regular
basis or joining a gym. Take the stairs at work instead of the
elevator. Get out of the house on the weekend and head to
a park with biking and jogging trails. If you're not sick of
the mall, you can do your walking there -just don't make a
calorie-rich pit stop in the food court!

Make healthy choices. Avoid holiday leftovers. Give
away what you don't want to friends and neighbors, or if
suitable, donate it to a local food bank. Fill your pantry and
refrigerator with healthy choices, like fresh fruits and veggies,
whole grains and lean meats. Look for some new healthy
recipes to spice up your cooking routine. You can still treat
yourself now and then, but use moderation when it comes to
foods high in fat and calories.

Look for reinforcements. Odds are, many of your friends,
relatives and coworkers are in your same position. Join forces
to encourage and cheer each other on. Instead of meeting for
drinks or dinner with friends, go for a walk on the beach or
play a game of tennis together. Set a group goal for weight
loss or fitness milestones, then plan a special outing to
celebrate when you achieve it together.

Keep the pressure off. Most importantly, don't be too hard
on yourself. If you create unreasonable expectations and can't
meet them, you'll be likely to give up and overindulge.

If you're on a diet, focus on small, manageable goals. Create
new healthy habits for yourself that will help you make good
choices all year round. If you do overeat once or twice, don't
worry; you can always do better tomorrow. It's all about
moderation. Remember to stay focused on what matters most
- improving your health one day at a time!


Fitness for
Your Lifestyle:
Functional Training

It's easy to become a couch potato over
the holidays, which is why it's so important
to stay active. If your usual exercise routine
has lost its thrill, use some of your time
off to try functional training-it's a
buzzword in modern fitness circles, and it
gives new meaning to getting in shape.
Functional training is an individually-
tailored approach to fitness that's centered
on you and your activities of daily living.
It enhances your ability to do what you
do each day-from carrying children, to
working at a desk, to playing golf-by
specially training the muscles you use
the most."It has something to offer just
about everyone,' says Jennifer Tucker,
an exercise physiologist at the Venice
YMCA.
Focusing less on conventional strength
training machines, functional training
works through all three planes of motion
using minimal exercise equipment. It
strengthens crucial core muscles-like
those in your back and abdomen-
which, over time, can help you prevent
the aches, pains, and sprains that happen
so often in everyday life.
If you're interested, check with the
YMCA. They offer skilled personal
trainers, as well as classes like"Boot
Camp" that provide functional training
in a group setting. For more information,
call (941) 492-9622.

Turtle hatchlings head out


to sea after eventful season

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Budget cuts and predators took a toll on sea turtles this season.
Despite a lack of severe storms, Jim Grimes' mapping skills that identified which street lights needed to be
turned off near beaches, a corps of volunteers, lighting ordinances and other efforts, nearly 40 percent of Venice
area turtle nests were affected.
"No adults were disoriented but there were 57 hatchling events," Mote Marine biologist Tony Tucker said. "When you
look nest by nest, throwing out the number of nests washed over, 38.8 percent of the nests were affected. That's high."
Venice tied with Longboat Key with the most incidents in the county.
Tucker said Venice had 175 loggerhead nests and one Kemp's ridley turtle nest. There were three Kemp's ridley nests
in the county. The one in Venice was the first since 1999. There were a total of 10
Kemp's ridley hatchlings and 6,715 loggerhead hatchlings.
Three things contributed to the turtles' problems in 2009.
Budget cuts at the state level led to personnel limitations that prevented a
timely inspection of local beaches by anyone from Florida's Fish and ,-
Wildlife Conservation Commission, Tucker said. .-
The lack of those inspections hampered the work of Venice .' -
code enforcement officer John Patek, who relies on the FWC
reports. Without them, step two didn't happen, which led to the third thing an increase in lighting infractions from
condos near the beach. In a normal year, Patek and others would patrol beach areas and send notices to those condos
where lights were a problem. Because that didn't happen this year, there were 37 incidents relating directly to excess
lights at condos, which causes hatchlings to be disoriented on the way from their nests to the Gulf water.
There also were 35 incidents related to sky glow, 12 events in the area of the
\~ nice Fishing Pier, 12 events related to restaurants and nine related to street
li \,\lu There were nine disorientations because of lights from single-family
homus, eight in parking lots, one of unknown cause and one on a dune crossover.
Tucker said turtles seem to be able to deal with the light of a full moon, but the
%darker the night, the more they are affected by sky glow or the general lights of the city.
I le had high praise for Grimes' mapping skills, which identified those street lights that
needed to be turned off during turtle season and which also promoted the revision of the
city's sea turtle lighting ordinance, in place since 1997.
"Jim gave us this road map and showed us what we need to do," Tucker said. "We went street light by street light in May."
Venice's revised sea turtle lighting ordinance is expected to be approved prior to the 2010 turtle season, which
begins May 1 and runs through Oct. 31. As this article was being written the draft ordinance was in the hands of
Kathleen Weedon, city engineer, who was rewriting it for simplification, which is expected to make it easier to enforce.
Predators
Predators are a continual problem. This season the numbers included human predators in SUN ILLUSTRATIONS
June. Two nests were vandalized by humans and two nests were poached by humans. The BY ROB BROYLES
perpetrators have yet to be caught.
Raccoons, coyotes, armadillos and domestic animals all did damage to mi -
tle nests, with 11 raccoons responsible for affecting one or more eggs in 2: I 1
176 Venice nests.
Tucker is optimistic that, with the new lighting ordinance and two
funding opportunities, things will be better for the sea turtles in
the future. .
Meanwhile, those hatchlings that made it to the sea are on '" ,
their way to the Canary Islands, being carried along by ocean cur-
rents. There will be other challenges and other predators along the way,
but some will make it and eventually the survivors will return to the area where they hatched and the process will
repeat. About one out of 2,000 hatchlings survives to the age of 20 to 30 years, which is when they can reproduce.
Mating occurs offshore the month preceding nesting. Females will nest with one or more males and generally cre-
ate about four nests. If disturbed by lights, predators or other causes, they might come ashore without nesting. In
the worst case, they might simply drop their eggs in the Gulf, where they will have no chance to hatch.
The numbers in this article refer only to the six sections of Venice beach patrolled by volunteers trained by
Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota.

Kemp's ridley sea
turtle makes rare
appearance in Venice

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

The smallest and most endangered of
all sea turtles, the Kemp's ridley, made a
rare appearance in Venice this season.
"It was the first since 1999," Mote
Marine Laboratory biologist Tony Tucker
said.
There also was one other Kemp's ridley
nest in Sarasota County, on Casey Key, and
one in Charlotte County, he said.
Tucker said there were just 10 hatch-
lings from the Venice nest, possibly
because of a washover during the sea-
son. A typical nest will have 100 to 110
eggs. Tucker said two of the nests were
made by the same turtle and one at
Stump Pass was made by a genetically
different Kemp's ridley.
Smaller than loggerheads, Kemp's ridley
turtles weigh 80 to 100 pounds when full-
grown, which is about half the weight of
mature loggerheads. They measure about
22 to 30 inches when full-grown, according
to information in "Florida's Sea Turtles," by
Victoria BrookVan Meter for Florida Power
& Light. Like the loggerhead, it is omnivo-
rous, eating shrimp and crabs, fish, jelly-
fish and mollusks. Mostly found in the
Gulf of Mexico, there are occasional sight-
ings along the east coast of the United
States, possibly the result of storms or tides
that carry them off course.
According to Van Meter, the prime nest-
ing beaches of the species were a mystery
until a film was shown at a 1961 scientific
meeting. Made in 1947 by a Mexican engi-
neer, the film showed thousands of Kemp's
ridley hatchlings emerging from a remote
beach near Rancho Nuevo, Mexico. Nests
there are down to about 1,000 annually
because of natural predators as well as
people who have eaten the eggs and turtle
meat. Kemp's ridley sea turtles were first
named to the endangered list in 1970.
That one Mexican beach area continues
to account for nearly all the Kemp's ridley
nesting, which is both interesting to scien-
tists but also thought to be key to the tur-
tle's survival, Van Meter wrote. Faced with
so many eggs and nests, predators may
not be able to consume all the eggs, leav-
ing many to successfully hatch and find
their way into the relative safety of the gulf
waters where they might mature and
return to continue the species. Kemp's rid-
ley turtles reach sexual maturity as early as
5, while green turtles begin mating at
about 13 years and loggerheads at 20 or
more.
Since the 1960s, the species has been
protected by the Mexican government.
Eggs are moved to protected hatcheries to
keep them safe from predators such as
raccoons and coyotes and, despite the
laws, people. Maturing turtles are occa-
sionally caught in shrimp nets, but work
with the shrimp trawling industry to
develop turtle excluder devices continues.
In the Cayman Islands, some Kemp's
ridley turtles are being raised at the
Cayman Island Turtle Farm, which releas-
es turtles into the wild when sexually
mature. In the case of the Kemp's ridley,
that can be as early as 5 years, according to
information from the farm I visited last
year. The larger turtles have a better
chance for survival, according to a
spokesman there. The farm currently has
37 Kemp's ridleys, including four 4-
year-old turtles received from the Key
West Municipal Aquarium, with per-
mission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service and the National Marine Fisheries
Service. The Cayman Islands program was
designed to accommodate the lifestyle of
the islanders who have long eaten turtle
eggs and meat. Turtles appear on Cayman
currency, its flag and elsewhere. By farm-
raising the creatures, islanders believe
they are maintaining the species and the
islanders' lifestyle.
Protected by various international
treaties and conventions, Kemp's ridleys
continue to be the most endangered of all
sea turtles. In 2002, the beach at Rancho
Nuevo was designated by the Mexican
government as a Natural Protected Area
Sanctuary.

Online group takes


recycling to new level


BY CAITLIN GREENE
SUN CORRESPONDENT


In today's push for "green" initia-
tives, Julie Aldridge runs a group that
has found a way to put up-to-the-
minute technology to work for those
who would rather recycle than throw
things away.
The group is called Freecycle, and it's
an online community that allows peo-
ple to post unwanted items that can be
picked up by another local member
instead of being dumped in a landfill.
Freecycle groups have been started
all over the world, in addition to Venice.
The first group was started in 2003 by
Darron Beal in Arizona. Freecycle cur-
rently operates in 85 countries.
The Freecycle Web site notes that
500 tons of discarded items are recycled
every day. That means that over the
course of a year an amount roughly five
times the height of Mount Everest is
saved from landfills.
"We are helping our environment
because we aren't going out to pur-
chase petroleum products," said Nancy
Webb, who has been a member of the
group for three years.
The Venice group started in 2005.
Aldridge took it over in 2006. Its 1,617
active members hail from Venice,
Englewood and North Port.
"It's a great group and I've loved
watching it grow," Aldridge said.
Helping out
Aldridge said the group's purpose is
pretty straightforward.
"We want to take things that some-
one else can take and either use for
their intended purpose or recycle it into
something else," she said.
"What the members have to under-
stand is that these items are not of

community, visit www.freecycle.org.

much value. The purpose of Freecycle
is to give away things that might not be
sold at a garage sale but that can still be
used."
After joining Freecycle, members
can send out an e-mail to the entire
group offering unwanted things. They
can also send an e-mail asking for
something they need.
"This helps, especially in this econo-
my," she said. "If someone needs a
couch because theirs was destroyed,
their neighbor may have one that was
heading to the landfill."
Webb even found a way to use
Freecycle for home improvement pro-
jects.
"I was building a small pond, and
instead of going out and purchasing the
parts I needed, I asked for carpet pads
and other items I could use," she said.
"Now I have all kinds of Freecycle items
making up my duck pond."
"Some people think it's a charity and
it's not," Aldridge said. "It's just to help
the environment, and sometimes it just
works out to help a family in need."
But the IRS does consider Freecycle
a charity; there-
fore, all donated
items are tax-
deductible.
"It's really just
gift giving,"
Webb said. "The
IRS doesn't ask
you to report the
value of your
birthday pre-
sents."

Find outdoor adventures and




family fun at Florida's state par]


FROM FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF
ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

The Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection's Florida State
Parks and the Get Outdoors Florida!
coalition encourage Floridians and
visitors to spend time outdoors in
Florida's 160 state parks. Numerous
recreational activities, a host of spe-
cial events and cool weather make
this a perfect time of year for outdoor
adventure.
"Florida's state parks are a perfect
venue for friends and families to
spend time together in the great out-
doors," said FDEP's park service direc-
tor Mike Bullock.
As partners of the Get Outdoors
Florida! coalition, FDEP and Florida
State Parks are emphasizing the
importance of healthy, outdoor activ-
ities year round. Spending time in
nature and releasing endorphins
through physical activity will help
relieve stress and maintain a healthy
balance. With 160 state parks
throughout the state, there are end-
less activities to engage friends and
families of all ages and abilities.

Helping families
"Get Outdoors Florida! is about


helping children and families learn to
be happier, healthier and smarter,
and sustaining Florida's natural
resources," said Bob Wattendorf,
chairman of the coalition.
Ideas for outdoor recreation in-
clude:
* Torreya State Park, Bristol: The
Weeping Ridge Trail provides a
healthy and pleasant walk to one of
the park's deep ravines. A seven-mile
loop hiking trail meanders through
the park, exposing the hiker to virtual-
ly all the park's natural features. For
more information, call (850) 643-
2674.
* Big Shoals State Park, White Springs:
The Suwannee River's average current
of two to three miles per hour and
white sandy beaches make the Shoals
a popular spot for canoeing and
kayaking. For more information, call
(386) 397-4331.
* Gamble Rogers Memorial State
Recreation Area, Flagler Beach. For
information, call (386) 986-8572.
* Lake Louisa State Park, Clermont:
Offering 16 miles of designated
equestrian trails, Lake Louisa offers
equestrian camping facilities along
with outstanding fishing opportuni-
ties in its six beautiful lakes. For more
information, call (352) 394-3969.


* Alafia River State Park, Lithia: With
unique topography that offers some
of the most radical elevation changes
in Florida, the Alafia off-road bicy-
cling trails are the most challenging in
the area. For more information, call
(813) 672-5320.
* Highlands Hammock State Park,
Sebring: For information, call (863)
385-4736.
* Bahia Honda State Park, Big Pine
Key: Bahia Honda has some of the
best near-shore snorkeling in the
Florida Keys, with a variety of sea life
just a few hundred feet from the
shore. Bring a wetsuit this time of year
as the water gets cool. For more infor-
mation, call (305) 872-2353.


About the coalition
The Get Outdoors Florida! coali-
tion, formed in 2008, is a partnership
of land managers, government agen-
cies, children's advocates, health care
professionals, public interest groups
and other individuals. The coalition is
the product of a wide array of partners
coming together to address societal
needs, including public well-being,
health issues and natural resource
conservation. The coalition envisions
a healthy Florida community that is


connected with nature and reflects
social diversity exhibiting a conserva-
tion ethic and ensuring a sustainable
future and recreational opportunities.
Tips for outdoor activities, as well
as a calendar featuring a wide variety
of planned outdoor events for youth,
families and mentors can be found on
the coalition's Web site, www.getout-
doorsflorida.org.
In 2010, the FDEP's Florida State
Parks will celebrate 75 years of recre-
ation and preservation. Florida's 160
state parks offer white sandy beaches,
vast open prairies, steep ravines, lush
semi-tropical forests, cultural sites
and crystal clear lakes, rivers and
springs. State parks also offer count-
less locations to learn about Florida's
cultural history and serve as outdoor
classrooms for students of all ages.
Affordable, family-friendly activi-
ties, such as swimming, hiking, bicy-
cling, paddling, diving, fishing, camp-
ing, horseback riding, birding, pho-
tography, events and ranger-led tours
are just a few ways people enjoy our
natural resources.

events, contests and discounts, visit

HERNIATED DISC PROBLEMS


DR. DAN BUSCH, DR. ERENE ROMANSKI
CHIROPRACTOR
If your back pain is caused by a herniated
disc, you may be able to get the relief you
need through treatment by your doctor of
chiropractic. Years of study and experience in
treating health problems related to the spine
and nervous system have made him a
specialist in this area.
A great percentage of the more common
back strains and disc problems caused by


chiropractic treatment. Your doctor of
chiropractic's treatment will not include
pain-killing drugs that only mask but do not
cure the problem, nor will it include surgery.
Through gentle manipulative techniques and
other therapies, he will work to correct any
spinal misalignments that are exerting
pressure on the discs and nervous system. He
or she may also prescribe bed rest, ice or heat
applications, as well as exercise to improve
the flexibility of your spine and remove the


lateral (to the side) herniation respond well to cause of pain.

Sarasota Opera to produce 'Joan of Arc'


FROM SARASOTA
OPERA

The National Endow-
ment for the Arts recent-
ly awarded $17,500 to
Sarasota Opera to mount
a new production of the
rarely heard Verdi opera
"Giovanna d'Arco" ("Joan
of Arc") in March 2010.
Verdi achieved early
success with this re-
telling of the French war-
rior- saint that is rich with
stirring choruses, imagi-
native orchestral writing
and an abundance of
arching melodies. Sara-
sota Opera will present
six performances of the
opera in repertoire as
part of the four-opera


Winter Festival sched-
uled for Feb. 6 to March
21.
"Giovanna d'Arco" is
the 26th work in Sarasota
Opera's internationally
acclaimed Verdi Cycle: it
is one more component
of the multi-decade ar-
tistic commitment be-
gun in 1989 by Artistic
Director Victor DeRenzi.
Sarasota Opera
Based in Florida's
beautiful Gulf Coast,
Sarasota Opera celebrat-
ed its 50th season in
2008-09. In 1960, the
company began present-
ing chamber-sized reper-
toire in the historic 320-
seat Asolo Theater on the


grounds of Sarasota's
Ringling Museum of Art.
Recognizing the need for
a theater more con-
ducive to opera, the
company purchased the
former A.B. Edwards
Theater in downtown
Sarasota in 1979 and first
performing in it in 1984
as the Sarasota Opera
House. The theater has
just undergone a $20
million renovation and
rehabilitation enhancing
audience amenities,
while updating the tech-
nical facilities including
increasing the size of the
orchestra pit. The the-
ater, which reopened in
March 2008, has been
called "one of America's


finest venues for opera"
by Musical America.
Since 1983 the com-
pany has been under the
artistic leadership of
Victor DeRenzi. Since
then the company has
garnered international
attention with its Mas-
terwork Revivals Series,
which presents neglect-
ed works of artistic merit,
as well as the Verdi Cycle
producing the complete
works of Giuseppe Verdi.
Recognizing the impor-
tance of training, Maes-
tro DeRenzi founded the
Apprentice Artist and
Studio Artist programs.
Sarasota Opera also
maintains a commit-
ment to education


through its OPERA-tion
performances for local
schools and the unique
Sarasota Youth Opera
program.
The Winter Opera
Festival will return on
Feb. 6 with the perennial
double bill of Pietro
Mascagni's Cavalleria
rusticana and Ruggero
Leoncavallo's Pagliacci.
The season will also
include Mozart's "The
Magic Flute" and Hump-
erdinck's "Hansel and
Gretel." Verdi's rarely
heard "Giovanna d'Arco"
will be given as part of
the company's Verdi
Cycle, an effort designed
to produce all of the
composer's works. "Gio-


vanna d'Arco" will be the
26th Verdi opera given by
the company.
Tickets for all Sara-
sota Opera perfor-
mances are on now sale
at the box office at 366-
8450, ext. 1, in person at
61 N. Pineapple Ave.,
Sarasota, FL 34236 or at
www.sarasota opera.org.
The Sarasota Opera is
sponsored in part by the
State of Florida, Depart-
ment of State, Division of
Cultural Affairs, the
Florida Arts Council, and
the National Endowment
for the Arts.
Programs are paid for
in part by Sarasota
County Tourist Devel-
opment Tax revenues.


FROM SAVE THE
MANATEE CLUB


As of Dec. 4, 91 mana-
tees have been killed by
watercraft in Florida dur-
ing 2009, approaching the
record of 95 watercraft
deaths set in 2002. And the
record can be easily bro-
ken in the remaining two
weeks of the year without
a commitment from all of
Florida's boaters to help
prevent additional deaths.
Anecdotal reports indi-
cate the economy has
changed boating patterns,
keeping boaters closer to
shore to save money on
gas. Concentrating water-
craft inshore, in the same
waters inhabited by man-
atees, could help account
for the rise in mortalities,
but this is not a necessary
outcome.
Each and every boater,
through careful boating
practices and compliance
with speed zones, can


greatly reduce the number
of manatee injuries and
deaths from boat strikes.
Save the Manatee Club
members are calling for
boaters to slow down in
manatee habitat, obey the
posted speed zones, and
immediately report man-
atee injuries to the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission at
1-888-404-3922 so that a
timely rescue can be initi-
ated and the manatee can
receive life-saving treat-
ment.
Save the Manatee Club
offers boaters and shore-
line property owners free
boating banners and alu-
minum dock signs to
remind fellow boaters
manatees are present.
The welfare of individ-
ual manatees thoroughly
depends on boater com-
pliance with posted speed
zones. It's up to all of us
to protect manatees from
unnecessary deaths


caused by a propeller
blade or boat hull. It's a
simple call to action that
carries life or death conse-
quences for our state's
iconic, endangered ma-
rine mammal.
Florida's boating com-
munity can request free
waterproof boating ban-
ners, aluminum dock
signs (for shoreline prop-
erty owners) and boating
conservation posters by
contacting Save the
Manatee Club at educa
tion@savethemanatee.
org.
To view manatee
monthly mortality data,

Wildlife Conservation
Commission's Web site at

Awise philosopher named
Dr. Seuss once said, "Don't

"Smile for what was."
As Venice residents write
in the last pages of their grat-

is a long list of good things to
be thankful for. In addition to
the pictures on this page, let's
recall a few more tip-of-the-

Three cheers to the Venice
Gondolier Sun for hiring
Perry Pentz as our sports
editor. He is the best. James
Hagler, the director of the


Triangle Inn Association, gets
a bravo for the additions at
the inn. Be sure to check out
the new boutique. Sherry

bistro at the Venice Art
Center that gets rave reviews.
Thank you Rosanne Brown

energizing downtown Venice
with the Christmas in July and
Food Pantry fundraiser. The
Venice Theatre gets a standing
O for its shows and for offering
pay what you can for the
Christmas show. 'Angels We

celestial choir was in tune.
Mary, Joseph, shepherds

don't tell anyone, we earn
stars for heaven. No wonder

The special person of this
week is Sue Chapman. This
terrific lady became presi-
dent of the Venice Historical
Society with big shoes to fill.
She made them even bigger.
Sue moved the meetings to
Village on the Isle. Member-
ship increased. Refreshments
get an A plus. Programs
include interesting speakers
and she brings a warmth and
sense of humor to the organi-
zation that make every event
fun.
On top of it all, Sue por-
trays Bertha Palmer as she
did in the Christmas Parade,
riding in a convertible with
the top down, waving to
everyone and looking like
royalty. Sue Chapman is
one of the women who make
Venice a great place to live.

Tents bring a smile
All year long, as I pass the big empty lot at
Venetia Bay, near the Hatchett Creek or
North Bridge of Venice, I wonder what if
anything will ever be built there.
For now, those thoughts can be set aside.
Big bold European-style circus tents fill the space.
Not only do the tents seem fit perfectly, the tents
evoke thoughts of those colorful years from 1960 to
1992 when The Greatest Show on Earth wintered in
Venice exciting years that have left a major mark
on the city. When "Venice" was inscribed on the train
cars which hauled the big show around the country,
Venice gained fame and a certain charisma.
With the raising of the Circus Cirquesa tents for the
second year, those historic years seem to have
returned.
Thank you Noe and Ivan Espana for bringing your
family-style and family-run show back to town.
It seems that lot was empty for a reason.
Easily seen by anyone using the North Bypass or
North bridge, Circus Cirquesa should bring a
smile to many, especially those who fondly
remember an earlier time when $2 bills filled
many a merchant's cash drawer, proving the
economic impact of another circus on the then-tiny
town of Venice.
For information, visit www.circuscirquesa.com
or call 800-625-7220.

The beauty and ballet of the


Lipizzaner Stallions coming to Punta Gorda

BY SHARE DERRICKSON
SUN CORRESPONDENT


It is a breed of horse, Gary Lashinsky
said, like no other in the world. "They
are so rare, there are only about
3000 of them in the world." He is
talking of the world famous performing
Lipizzaner Stallions who will be
performing at the Charlotte Harbor
Events and Conference Center in
Punta Gorda, Jan. 5 6.
The beauty of the Lipizzaners is
what fairy tales are made of but so is
their history. Lashinsky explained that
were so beloved and admired by U.S.
General Patton, he was instrumental in
organizing "Operation Cowboy," where
a tank unit was sent in to Germany to
rescue more than 300 Lipizzaners and
return them to Piber, Austria.
Lashinsky and his wife Elizabeth
have been working with the Lipizzan-
ers since 1969. "We import them from
the Piber, Austria stud farm, which is
the home of the Spanish riding school,"
he said
The Spanish riding school teaches
the classical dressage for which the
Lipizzaners are famous with ballet-like
movements called "airs above the
ground," he explained. The Lipizzaners
have more than 400 years of history as
performance horse royalty.
"I have been doing this for about
40 years. I went to Austria and saw
them and knew they could be success-
ful in the United States," he said. "I am
passionate about them because they
are probably one of the most beautiful
animals there are and we want to
preserve their heritage in the equestri-
an arts."
"We have 46 horses, including mares
we are breeding," he said, "and stal-
lions that are in training." It takes
roughly six to eight years to train a
horse and the stallions begin training
around age four. "It takes a lot of time
and a lot of patience," he said. "We
have our ranch near Orlando where we
have our training facility and our office
and have performed overseas, as well
as in the United States and Canada."
"They are a very rare breed so it is
unusual to see so many of them in one
place," he said. There are around 750
registered Lipizzaners in the United
States and Canada, he said.
Lashinsky said around 13 to 14
horses will be performing at the
Charlotte Harbor Events and Confer-
ence Center. The floor, he said, will
have a layer of a special material
made from paper put down that allows
the horses to perform indoors. They
are also shod with steel-cleated shoes
so they can perform the intricate
movements with sure footing on the
material. "It is amazing to see them
perform and see what they can do.
They are the 'Dancing White Stallions
from Vienna' because when the music
is on, they appear to be dancing to it."
he said. "It really is great family
entertainment. You don't have to be a
horse lover to enjoy it."

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Sir Richard Branson finds more
ways to get high than most
anyone on earth. In March, the
high-flying adventurer will be in the
thick of the best kite boarders in the
world for the Inaugural BVI Kite Jam in
the British Virgin Islands.
An avid kiteboarder and sponsor of
this new event, Branson came up with
the idea while racing friends in the
BVI.
Part competition, part convention and
part clinic, the event is expected to
draw the eyes of the extreme sports
world to Tortola, BVI. Branson, an avid
kiteboarder as well as record holder for
sailing across the Atlantic in a boat and
over it in a balloon, is the owner of
Virgin Records and Virgin Airways. He
also holds the balloon record for a flight
over the Pacific Ocean, according to
information found on various Web sites.
A launch party for the coming event
was held in Tortola near the end of
November, and included Branson plus
members of the local tourist board.
Located in the northeastern part of
the Caribbean, the BVI are said to
provide perfect kiteboarding conditions.
Judging by the number of sailboats
there in December when I was there
for a day during a cruise, it also is a
perfect place for sailing. Catamarans
seemed especially prevalent at the two
yacht basins I visited.
Kiteboarding events planned include
flat water freestyle, waves, sliders and
races. Kiteboarders are expected from
all around the globe.
"Come March, our islands will be
teeming with kiteboarders from inter-
mediates to pros, sports enthusiasts


SBest Travel Agent
S Sandy Bevers


and a stream of VIPs," said Myron
Walwyn, chairman of the BVI Tourist
Board. "... we're counting on the
participation of some of the sport's
finest athletes."
German kiteboarder Kristin Boese
and American Gretta Kruesi were
among the early confirmed entries.
While the events won't begin until
March 1, there will be a kick-off party
Feb. 27 at the Fat Virgin Cafe on Virgin
Gorda, followed by several other
parties at the Bitter End Yacht Club,
Necker Island, Anegada and Moskito
Island. Not exactly a yacht club, the
Bitter End is one of the most popular
resorts in the BVI, if not the world.
Sunsail, the largest charter company
in the islands, is providing its new
Sunsail 384 cruising catamaran for use
of the committee and will be the official
fleet for Kite Jam. Its new catamaran is
powered by solar panels and sails.
Entrants can register on line at
www.bvikitejam.com.
Tom DeMartine owns Virgin Island
Sailing in Nokomis, a company that
arranges boat charters in the BVI. Call
him at 800-382-9666 or 941-966-9387.

the British Virgin Islands, call your

SUN PHOTOS BY KIM COOL
The gardens at Sundy House invite
strolling and picture taking.
BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
undy House and its Taru
Gardens are a match made in
heaven.
Within walking distance of Atlantic
Avenue shops in Delray Beach, the
city's oldest house (circa 1902) is one
of the top boutique hotels in America.
Winding paths to rooms or suites in
one of three buildings, pass gazebos,
bamboo stands and the fresh water
pool with its people-friendly fish
filtration system.
Each room and bath is a
work of art, with hand-
stained wood floors,
hand-made tile,
designer hardware and
furniture paying
homage to West Indies
plantation houses. My two-
floor suite, known as Room 1,
had two bedrooms, two baths, living,
dining and kitchen areas plus stacked
washer and dryer. French doors led to
an upstairs balcony and, on the main
floor, to a private patio with a gate
offering a shortcut to the main house
and the extraordinary food served
there.


Fish roam the freshwater pools at Sunday
House in Delray Beach. A shallow wading
pool is separated only by what appears to
be a rocky ledge from the 9-foot deep
main pool.
Fluffy white towels awaited me at the
pool where I escaped for a 30-minute
respite before heading into the
,.harming shops along
Atlantic Avenue.
As wonderful as the
shops are, that stunning
suite and its cushioned
rattan furniture beckoned.
As I was there on a
Saturday night, another treat
loomed on the morrow Sundy's
Sunday brunch with food displayed on
many tables in several rooms.
"Pace yourself," Scott, my waiter
said.
Change of pace is what Sundy
House is about a delightful change
indeed.

New nightclub to bring soul to Charlotte County


House of Prime introduces

night spot for Baby Boomers


BY JOHN HACKWORTH
MANAGING EDITOR
PORT CHARLOTTE No hip-hop.
No rap.
That's the promise club manager
Ted Osborn has made to potential
clients of a new nightclub at the
House of Prime restaurant.
As a matter of fact, anyone who
remembers Osborn and the acts he
brought to Reflections nightclub at the
old Litchfield Ramada Inn, have an
idea what's in store for his as-yet
unnamed club.
"We want to target a specific


audience," Osborn said. The veteran
promoter said he wants to fill the 170-
person capacity club with Baby
Boomers and those who enjoy danc-
ing to the "old school, Motown, rhythm
and blues." He plans to kick things off
with a grand opening Jan. 6 featuring
three one-time or current members of
the Platters Verceal Whitaker, Al
Holland and Wilson Williams.
Tickets for that show are on sale
now and going fast, Osborn said. "We
won't charge a cover charge except
for special shows and this opening
night should be very special by


bringing back these three members of music most nights. Plans call for
the Platters." featuring Verceal,

the New Year with
"Southern Comforts," by
award winning play-
wright Kathleen Clark.
The play, the fourth

ward romance is filled
with sweet surprise and

the play will be directed
by Ralph Barns who has

More than 30 years.

SUN CORRESPONDENT
Dressed in his crisp black
uniform, one moment,
Michael Longo may be
balancing a large tray of entries
one-handed at shoulder height,
opening a bottle of fine wine for a
couple enjoying an evening out
alone, or tending bar at the
Wyvern's chic Lulu restaurant.
Whatever he is doing, he said he
gives it his all. "If you are going to
be in this business, the 40-year-old
food and beverage supervisor at
the new hotel in Punta Gorda said,
"you have to do it from the heart."
For him, his job is more of his
calling. "I have been in this
business since I was 15 years old,"
the Cincinnati native said. Longo,
who moved to Florida this past
March, started at the bottom of the
food and beverage food chain and
worked his way up, learning from
those around him. "I have pretty
much learned to do it all."
Now that he is near the top, he
considers it his job to not only
show up to work each day with his
"game on," but also in being a
good leader and inspiring those
who work with him. "Everyone who
works here from the bottom up is
important and part of a team."
"For those that want to be in this


field, you have to teach them how
to leave their problems at home
and come here and put their heart
into their job," he said, adding that
in the past, many went into the
field as a transition to something
else, but now, the hospitality
business is more of a chosen
profession. "I am here because this
is where I want to be and not
because I have to be."
"When someone comes here, no
matter who they are, they deserve
to feel special. Everyone should be
treated the same like they are a
star and just as important as the
person at the table next to them."
He said his philosophy and that
of the Wyvern are a perfect fit and
that is why he said he jumped at
the chance to take the job. "They
want people to get the best for
their money and so do 1. And I
want people to remember their
experience whether they are
celebrating an anniversary or a
graduation or just time out
together. We can make it a memory
for them that they can leave their
cares behind for a period of time
and sit here and get treated like
royalty," he said.
"This job is about celebrating life
and helping others do that makes
me happy."

TO
THE


Alvin and the Chipmunks: The
Squeakquel (G) B
Now in the care of Dave Seville's
nephew (Zachary Levi), Alvin, Simon
and Theodore take a break from pop-
music stardom and return to school.
Almost immediately, the tiny tunesmiths
are given the giant task of saving their
school's music program by winning a
battle of the band's contest. Though the
boys think winning the contest will be
easy, romantic and musical sparks fly
when they meet Brittany, Eleanor and
Jeannette also known as The
Chipettes.

Avatar (PG-13) A-
Avatar takes us to a spectacular
world beyond imagination, where a
reluctant hero embarks on an epic
adventure, ultimately fighting to save
the alien world he has learned to call
home. James Cameron, the Oscar-
winning director of "Titanic," first
conceived the film 15 years ago, when
the means to realize his vision did not
exist yet.

Did You Hear About the
Morgans? (PG-13) C
New Yorkers Paul (Hugh Grant) and
Meryl (Sarah Jessica Parker) Morgan
seem to have it all except for the fact
that their marriage is crumbling around
them. But their romantic woes are small
compared to the world of trouble they
find themselves in after they witness a
murder. To protect them from an
assassin, federal agents whisk Paul
and Meryl away to small-town
Wyoming, where their marriage will
either finally crash and burn, or their
passion will re-ignit.

Disney's A Christmas Carol (PG) B
Robert Zemeckis, captures the
fantastical essence of the classic
Dickens tale in a groundbreaking 3D
motion picture event.

Invictus (PG-13) A-
With the fall of apartheid in South
Africa, Nelson Mandela (Morgan
Freeman) tries to unite his countrymen
and bring peace by bringing the Rugby
World Cup to his country.


It's Complicated (R) B
Jane (Streep) is the mother of three
grown kids, owns a thriving Santa
Barbara bakery/restaurant and has-
after a decade of divorce-an amicable
relationship with her ex-husband,
attorney Jake (Baldwin). But when Jane
and Jake find themselves out of town
for their son's college graduation, things
start to get complicated. An innocent
meal together turns into the unimagin-
able-an affair. With Jake remarried to
the much younger Agness (Lake Bell),
Jane is now, of all things, the other
woman. Caught in the middle of their
renewed romance is Adam (Martin), an
architect hired to remodel Jane's
kitchen. Healing from a divorce of his
own, Adam starts to fall for Jane, but
soon realizes he's become part of a love
triangle.Should Jane and Jake move on
with their lives, or is love truly lovelier
the second time around? It's...compli-
cated.

Nine (PG-13) B
Famous film director Guido Contini
(Daniel Day-Lewis) grapples with epic
crises in his personal and professional
life. At the same time, he must strike a
balance among the demands of the
numerous women in his life, including
his wife (Marion Cotillard), his mistress
(Penelope Cruz), and his confidant
(Judi Dench) .

Old Dogs (PG) C
Two best friends one unlucky-in-
love divorcee (Robin Williams) and the
other a fun-loving bachelor (John
Travolta) have their lives turned
upside down when they're unexpectedly
charged with the care of six-year-old
twins while on the verge of the biggest
business deal of their lives. The not-so-
kid-savvy bachelors stumble in their
efforts to take care of the twins, leading
to one debacle after another, and
perhaps to a new-found understanding
of what's really important in life.

Planet 51 (PG) C
Planet 51 is a galactic sized animat-
ed alien adventure comedy revolving
around America astronaut Captain
Charles "Chuck" Baker, who lands on
Planet 51 thinking he's the first person


to step foot on it. To his surprise, he
finds that this planet is inhabited by
little green people who are happily
living in a white picket fence world
reminiscent of a cheerfully innocent
1950s America, and those only fear is
that it will be overrun by alien
invaders...like Chuck! With the help of
his robot companion "Rover" and his
new friend Lem, Chuck must navigate
his way through the dazzling, but
bewildering, landscape of Planet 51 in
order to escape becoming a permanent
part of the Planet 51 Alien Invaders
Space Museum.

The Princess and the Frog (G) B+
Walt Disney Animation Studios
presents a musical set in the greatest
city of them all, New Orleans. "The
Princess and the Frog" marks Disney's
return to the warmth and grandeur of
hand drawn animation. The film teams
Ron Clements and John Musker,
creators of "The Little Mermaid" and
"Aladdin" with Oscar winning composer
Randy Newman. From the heart of
Louisiana's mystical bayouts and the
banks of the mighty Mississippi comes an
unforgettable tale of love, enchantment
and discovery with a trumpet playing
alligator, a love sick Cajun firefly, and a
host of other charming characters at
every turn.

Sherlock Holmes (PG- 13)
In a dynamic new portrayal of Arthur

Eagle Grille/Miller's Dockside jewel by the water


BY CHUCK BALLARO
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The Boca Grade Marina is a
great place to dock your boat,
take in the sights, and fill your
stomach at two restaurants, the
Eagle Grille and Miller's Dock-
side on Harbor Drive in Boca
Grande.
You walk in and are immedi-
ately captivated by the view of
the Boca Grande Bayou over-
looking Charlotte Harbor, the
dock lined with boats of all sizes.
You also get a look at what
Boca Grande was.
"It has that old Florida feel,"
said Eric Oberg, manager of
both establishments that serve
as one. "It's where you go to
trade fishing stories. It's a leg in
the past, a reminder of what
was."
The site is the Old Miller's
Marina, which has been there
since the 1950s. The first floor
used to be retail, with the
restaurant upstairs, but the place
has evolved over the years,
Oberg said.
It was being renovated when
Charley blew the roof off the
place in August 2004. It wasn't
until early 2007 when the
modern-day establishment
opened.
Today, the first floor houses
Miller's Dockside, which is part
tavern part restaurant with a
casual atmosphere. Miller's
features an outside deck with a
view of the marina, not to
mention drink specials and


standard fare such as pizza and
burgers. They also have their
take on a BLT which has
become very popular.
At the Eagle Grille, things are
a bit more upscale, but not
stuffy. It features an extensive
wine selection along with filet
mignon, scallops. It also features
a new take on some old
favorites.
"It's elegant simplistic,"
according to Frank Colton,
executive chef at the Eagle
Grille. "I wanted to get away from
confusing food where people
would ask questions."
A good example would be the
steak and fries. The "steak frites"
is made with hanger steak and
hand cut fries, and looks
different from what you know
steak and fries to look like.
Eagle Grille also features
great appetizers such as the
popular tuna nachos with wasabi
aioli, Ponzo, wanton nachos and
Seaweed salad, and black bean
hummus with fried plantain and
goat cheese.
The Eagle Grille also
features a Sunday brunch
from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., a
private room for business
meetings and live entertainment.
For those who dine on the
screened-in deck, it also
features a spectacular view of
Charlotte Harbor.
They're also trying to
make it more of an "everyman"
experience that everyone can
enjoy.

food and a wonderful view of Charlotte
Harbor.


"We were seen as too fancy
and we're trying to liven it up a
bit and make it more approach-
able," Oberg said.
The restaurants are part of
Boca Grande Marin which offers
a place to dock your boat and a
full service shop, showers and
laundry service.
Miller's Dockside is open
every day from 11 a.m. to
10 p.m. Eagle Grille is open
Thursday to Sunday from
5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. You can get
there by land or sea. For

Circus Cirquesa tents


are up in Venice


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
or the second year, circus tents
have been installed in Venice at
851 Venetia Bay Blvd. (just off
U.S. 41 Bypass near the North Bridge).
Filling the last open space of the
commercial area containing Northern
Trust Bank and the Hampton Inn,
among others, Circus Cirquesa of
Englewood is back in Venice with its
show, Dreamquest.
Developed by long-time circus
performers Noe and Ivan Espana,
Dreamquest features a storyline about
a young boy on a journey of self-
discovery, punctuated by mesmerizing
circus acts.
"If you saw the show last year, you
probably won't recognize it this year."
Zoe Espana said.
While the storyline is essentially
what it was last year, the acts are
different, although many still feature
members of the Espana family: Noe


and Vivien and their children Noemi
and Elan and Ivan and his children
Sian as the young boy (Michael) and
Zore. New acts include acrobatic dogs,
tight wire performers, trapeze artists
and the Icarian Games.
Tickets can be purchased at
www.cirquesa.com, or on site at the
box office, which opened Dec. 28.
Ringside seats are $27 per person.
Preferred seating is $18 per person
and general admission is $13 per
person. Children under 3 are free. A
portion of each ticket sale benefits
Sertoma, which in turn contributes to
several local charities. Sertoma Club
members will serve as ushers at the
performances. Sponsors for the show
include 107.9 (WSRZ), WWSB ABC 7,
Comcast Spotlight and the Venice
Gondolier Sun. Opening night is Jan.
7, with performances at various times,
according to the day of the week.
For information, call 800-625-7220.

Asolo Rep's


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Asolo Repertory's "Searching for Eden, the
Diaries of Adam and Eve has all the signs of
success from its wonderful Garden of Eden
set by Scott Bradley and Bruce Osler to the well-
matched actors Sam Osheroff and Kris Danford.
Osheroff ages as well as his character, Adam,
who moves from solitary dweller in the Garden of
Eden to perplexed person dealing with a new
creature who talks too much to devoted father and
husband. As played by Osheroff, Adam appears to
have more nuances and even to be the more
romantic character of the two.
Danford has many more lines to deliver as Eve
seems to be the more talkative one, finding just the
right word to describe this new place into which
she has landed. When she finds a listener, Eve has
even more to say, as she discovers love, marriage
and apple trees.
Together in real life as well as on stage, they are
a delightful Adam and Eve.
The clever set works as well as the Garden of
Eden as it does to portray E, a resort, thousands of
years later. Lighting is by Dan Scully, sound by
Matthew Parker and directing by Melissa Kievman.
"Eden" runs in rotating repertory through Feb. 25
in the Mertz Theatre at the FSU Center for the
Performing Arts, 5555 North Tamiami Trail, Sarasota.
Tickets are $60-$13. Call the box office at 941-
351-8000, 800-361-8388 or visit www.asolo.org.
