FAA: No airport downgrade


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


In a long-awaited response,
the Federal Aviation Adminis-
tration in Orlando has told the
city ofVenice it will not allow the
Venice Municipal Airport to be
downgraded.
City officials were hoping to
change the airport reference
code from a C-II to a B-II.
Theoretically, that would result
in fewer small jets frequenting
the airport. More important,
safety zones could be pulled
back, avoiding the Lake Venice
Golf Club and a dozen or so
homes in the Gulf Shores neigh-
borhood.
The FAA denied the city re-
quest in a letter to City Manager
Isaac Turner on Friday, Jan. 8, for
all the same reasons raised pre-
viously through FAA communi-


cations.
The FAA did leave open the
possibility of compromise.
'Although we cannot agree to
downgrade the airport or prima-
ry runway, we are open to con-
sidering other alternatives you
may have," wrote Bart Vernace,
assistant manager of the FAA
Orlando Airports District Office.
Those alternatives would
most likely include "modifica-
tions to standards" simply
allowing the homes in the run-
way protection zone to exist as
is. Modifications to standards
might also be granted to leave
the golf course clubhouse
and/or parking lot in its current
configuration, although the dri-
ving range will likely still need to
be moved.
Arguments
Vernace based his response


on the following observations:
Vemace called the city's
assumption "not correct" that
the FAA bases a B-II airport
designation on fewer than 500
annual operations (landings
and takeoffs) of C-II aircraft
based at the airport. The FAA
also takes into account C-II
itinerant aircraft, he wrote, and
other airport tenants who ser-
vice C-II aircraft.
The city's own forecast
indicates the airport will
exceed 500 operations within
the 20-year planning period,
and thus "it is not appropriate
to prepare an airport layout
plan that does not accommo-
date C-II aircraft."
The city made the case in
2006 that the Venice airport
was a C-II facility in order to

Performance center clears final hurdle


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


It didn't take much convinc-
ing for Venice City Council to
approve final agreements for
the planned Venice Perform-
ance Arts Center on the Venice
High School campus.
Council voted unanimously
Tuesday to approve an inter-
local agreement with the
Sarasota County School Board
and a fee agreement between
effected parties.
"Upsizing that school audi-
torium will give citizens a first-
class performance center at a
cost savings to your citizens,"


Good morning


said Sarasota County Schools
Chief Financial Officer Scott
Lempe.
Lempe said the center will
have a stage four times the size
of that found in a high school
auditorium.
Council Member John
Moore said the same docu-
ments city council members
were approving were crafted
10 years ago at North Port High
and "have withstood the test of
time."
He thanked civic organiza-
tions like the Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce who
promoted the community per-
formance center.

FROM THE CITY OF

The following streets in
Venice will have smoke test-
ing throughout the week:
Nokomis Avenue, The Rialto,
Cockrill Street, Cooper Street,
Alba Street, Davis Street,
Riviera Street, San Marco


Drive, Sovrano Road, Serata
Street, Ravenna Street and
Poinsettia Street.
The smoke testing is done
to improve sewer service in
the city of Venice. The test
involves forcing a smoke into
the sanitary sewer lines to
check for leaks, breaks and
defects in the system.


The smoke is odorless, cre-
ates no fire hazard and should
not enter the building unless
there is defective plumbing or
dried-up sink traps or floor
drains. It is a good idea to run
about 2 gallons of water into
the drain of seldom-used sinks,
showers or bathtubs in the
morning throughout the week.

In the event that smoke does

They will be outside in the

inside a building will indicate a
need to call a plumber.
It is normal to see smoke
coming from vent stacks on the


roof of a building being tested.
Smoke coming from holes in
the ground need the attention
of a plumber or the test crews.
The smoke testing should affect
each building for no more than
15 minutes.

Beware the Travelers


Sarasota County

Sheriff's Office:

Venice residents

are among victims

of roofing scam

BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR

Two Venice residents
have become the latest vic-
tims of the Travelers, a group
of gypsies who con people
out of money and belong-
ings. The Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office is warning
citizens about a roofing
scam currently being con-
ducted by them.
In two separate incidents,
a white male about 6 feet
tall, 190 pounds, 45-50 years
of age with dark hair,
knocked on the resident's
door. He claimed to notice a
problem with the roof and
asked to come inside and
discuss it.
Once inside, he asked
the victims to go into a
separate room and tap on
the ceiling or wall. He then
left the houses and drove
away.
Both victims immedi-
ately discovered items had
been taken from their
homes.
"We need more infor-
mation on this guy, who
drives either a gray truck or
van," said SCSO Lt. Charlie
Thorpe. "What we have
now is very vague."
If citizens think they
have spotted the van and
have a location for it, they
should call Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office patrol at


361-1201. Suspicious activi-
ty also can be reported to
the same number. Other-
wise, information on these
specific cases can be
reported to investigators at
861-1713.
The SCSO offers the fol-
lowing advice should an
unsolicited person approach
your home suggesting repairs
or other work:
Do not let strangers into
your home.
Never agree to repairs
on the spot. Ask for a written
estimate or contract.
Get as much informa-
tion as possible, including a
name and vehicle license
plate number.
Never pay in cash.
If you think your home
is in need of repairs, contact
a local, reputable company
and get at least three written
estimates.
Travelers are known for
roofing and driveway seal-
ing scams. The SCSO has
put out warning notices to
homeowners associations
and gated communities.
"I really hope neighbors
will look out for neighbors,"
Thorpe said. "Check on your
neighbors, especially if they
are elderly."
Thorpe said that depend-
ing on how organized the
Travelers are, they may be
sending scouts into neigh-
borhoods to find the most
vulnerable residents.
This is the time of year
when Travelers from Illinois,
Wisconsin and other cold
states decide to head south
to ply their craft in Venice.
Thorpe said it is important
that residents be vigilant.

King's lawyer files death penalty appeal


BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER

Attorneys for Michael King
have listed 21 reasons why he
should not be put to death,
including that the death penalty
is "unconstitutional" and the
state should not have used eye-
witness 9-1-1 calls as evidence
during his trial.
On Dec. 21, King's attorney,
Assistant Public Defender
Carolyn Schlemmer, filed the
appeal with the Attorney
General Criminal Appeals and
the Clerk of the Florida Supreme
Court challenging a judge's deci-
sion to sentence King to death.
Last year, King was found
guilty in the kidnapping, rape
and murder of 21-year-old
Denise Amber Lee.
King held Lee at gunpoint
when he took her from her
North Port home on Jan. 17,
2008. Her remains were found
two days later, buried in a wood-
ed area off of Toledo Blade
Boulevard.
After a three-week trial at the
Sarasota County Courthouse
that ended in September, all 12
jurors recommended a death
sentence.
During the December sen-
tencing, 12th Circuit Judge Deno
Economou became emotional
while reading into the record
what King did to Lee. He agreed
with the jury, sentencing King to
death.
Florida law requires an auto-
matic appeal in all capital mur-
der cases such as King's.
Errors alleged
In Schlemmer's appeal, she
calls the death penalty rein-
stated by the U.S. Supreme
Court in 1976 unconstitution-
al. The appeal states defense
counsel should have been


King


allowed to further
interview jurors,
and criticizes a
unanimous deci-
sion needed for
the jury to con-
clude in the penal-
ty phase of the
trial, as well as
"unreliable and


misleading evidence" from a
state Department of Law
Enforcement firearms analyst.
It goes on to state that neither
the 9-1-1 call Lee made while
trapped inside of King's Camaro
nor another 9-1 1 call made by
witness Jane Kowalski, who saw
King's car on the evening Lee was
taken, should have been allowed
in court. Kowalski reported
someone now known to be
Lee screaming and slapping
the window in the back seat of
the Camaro, stopped at a traffic
light next to her.
The prosecution's use of bul-
let casings, voice identification
and state doctors to evaluate
King during the trial is also being
appealed. Schlemmer claims
that being denied a motion for a
mistrial and an acquittal are also
grounds for appeal, according to
the attorney.
Schlemmer wrote that King
was denied a change of venue
outside Sarasota, therefore, he
was not given a fair trial. The
suppression of certain evidence
and the court's finding of King's
competency during the trial are
also listed.
Schlemmer noted there were
errors made in the sentencing
order, as well as in the judge
allowing certain portions of vic-
tim impact statements during
the penalty phase of the trial.
However, before the trial,
Schlemmer filed motions to have
some evidence suppressed -
such as King's demeanor when


he was arrested and early evi-
dence collected in a police raid of
King's North Port house where
Lee was raped and won.
Schlemmer could not be
reached for comment.
Faked
Assistant State Attorney Lon
Arend said he believed King,
who stared straight ahead and
was emotionless through most
of the trial, faked a mental ill-
ness.
"He was competent to stand
trial," Arend said. "We had tapes
from the night he was arrested
showing Michael speaking and
moving around. They were sup-
pressed, so the jury never saw
them."
Arend said an appeal is the
appropriate step in King's case.
"It is important that each and
every issue brought up by the
defense in the trial be included
on the notice of appeal so that
they can be reviewed by the
Supreme Court," he said. "In
order for a just, true sentence to
be carried out, everyone has to
be assured that the defendant
received a fair trial, and the
Supreme Court review is an
automatic part of the process.
"The fact that his attorneys
have so thoroughly documented
every possible argument is a tes-
tament to their professionalism,
and should assist the Florida
Supreme Court in what hopeful-
ly will be a thorough yet expedi-
tious review of the trial."
Arend said that if King's appeal
is not overturned, he could be
executed most likely by lethal
injection in five years.
"It should not take 15 years," he
said. "Laws have changed to make
executions more speedy when
appeals have been exhausted."

Teens can learn to drive like a deputy


BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR


Parents, what would you be willing
to pay to be reasonably sure your
teenage drivers aren't texting while they
are driving, but have both hands on the
wheel, are practicing defensive driving,
are leaving plenty of distance between
them and the car in front of them, know
what to do if their car runs off the road
and are practicing evasive maneuvers
to avoid a crash?
Would you pay $100? $1,000? $1 mil-
lion to know your child has all of the tools
he needs to stay alive behind the wheel?
The good news is you don't have to
pay a single penny to be assured that you
have equipped your children with every-
thing she needs to be a safe driver.
But you do have to sign them up for
the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office Teen
Driver Challenge. It won't cost you a cent.
In fact, you may get a reduction in your
auto insurance once you present the cer-
tificate they will earn from the course.
"I want to get more kids in cars and put
them through a structured driving course
with the right trainers," said SCSO Sheriff
Tom Knight. "These deputies have been
trained to drive in high-risk situations."
Knight said he didn't have to take on
the Teen Driver Challenge program,
but it was the right thing to do.
"If teens drive aggressively now,
they will drive aggressively when they
are 40," he said.
In fact, his own teenage daughter,
when she becomes a licensed driver, will
be enrolled in the course. So will SCSO
Sgt. RickyBeasley's 15-year-old daughter.
"Because I have a teenager who just
got her permit, I see all of the distrac-
tions they have first hand," he said.
"When she's 16 and licensed, I will cer-
tainly have her take the course.
"You have a whole lot going on in
your car, and you're in control of a
5,000-pound vehicle, so if you don't pay
attention to what's going on, bad things
can happen," Beasley said. "You can do
something out here on the road that
can change lives."
Forever
The Teen Driver Challenge course is
open to any licensed driver ages 16-19.


It is funded through a grant from the
Florida Department of Transportation
in partnership with Sarasota County
Schools through the Slosberg Act,
which promotes driver improvement.
"Every citation that is written in
Sarasota County, $5 of it goes to this
kind of education," said SCSO Lt. Tim
Enos, who's in charge of youth services.
Students receive at least 60 percent
behind-the-wheel training through
this course, which was created by the
Florida Sheriffs Association and
approved by FDOT.
"We're the guys who write the tickets
and investigate the accidents," Enos
said. "We see what happens when you
do things improperly."
Teen Driver Challenge is held twice
each quarter, with each session limit-
ed to 20 students. The next two ses-
sions are: Jan. 15-16. Friday night's
classroom session will run from 5 to 9
p.m. at the Criminal Justice Center,
2071 Ringling Blvd., Sarasota. The dri-
ving portion will be held Saturday
from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the driving
range, 6664 W Price Blvd., North Port,
next to North Port High School.
The next session will run Jan. 22-23,
same times, same places with one
exception: The classroom portion will
be held at the SCSO south district
office, 4531 State Road 776, Venice.
Registration forms are available
online at www.sarasotasheriff.org by
clicking on Teen Driver Challenge. An
online video demonstrates elements of
the course and includes testimonials
from teens who have taken the chal-
lenge. For information call, 927-4190.
Notices of the challenge have been
handed out at school, but it is believed,
based on the low turnout, that the
majority of the notices are not making
it into parents' hands.
These deputies, who teach new
deputy recruits how to drive, will pro-
vide the same intense training and
guidance to your teen.
"We know the message isn't getting
to parents, because as a parent myself,
I can't conceive of any parent not want-
ing their child to learn these tools,"
Enos said. 'All it takes is a moment of
inattentiveness and it can change lives
forever in a negative manner."

POLICE BEAT


Solving Venice burglaries
The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office detectives are
solving several Venice area burglaries, according to a
SCSO press release.
Ross Edward Pero, 25, 400 block
East Shade Drive, Venice, has been
arrested in connection with those
burglaries. C '
The investigation began with the
December burglary of a commercial
diving and fishing vessel docked in
the 200 block of Sunrise Drive,
Nokomis. Diving equipment, tools
and electronics worth $20,000 were Pero
stolen. Fingerprints taken from the
scene led detectives to Pero.
While deputies were executing a search warrant at
Pero's home on Jan. 5, Pero's mother agreed to a
search of her vehicle. Burglary tools and other prop-
erty, including a black Compaq laptop computer
reported stolen from a home on Landfall Drive in
Nokomis, were recovered. In addition, other items
were found that had been reported stolen from a
home in Pelican Pointe Golf & Country Club, includ-
ing numerous pieces of jewelry. Detectives later
determined Pero had pawned some of the jewelry.
Pero was arrested on Jan. 5, and charged with dealing
in stolen property and false ownership information for
pawned items less than $300. Bond was set at $25,000.
Charges are being added as investigators process prop-
erty recovered from him and identify items connected to
these and other burglaries in the area.

Domestic battery
A Venice couple has lived together for 15 years.
They have been married for eight years. Both agreed
that prior to the wee hours of Monday morning there
had been no violence in their relationship, according
to aVenice Police Department report.
That changed when Bobby Lee
Ellis was in the process of moving
out of their residence. It seems a
fight began over whether he could
take the Jeep, their only vehicle, or
not. His wife said no.
Their argument escalated into
pushing and shoving and finally,
Ellis punched his wife in the face
with his fist. Ellis
His wife admitted she may have
started the incident by pushing Ellis
and aggravating it by throwing bricks at the vehicle,
shattering most of its windows in an effort to prevent
Ellis from taking it.
Ellis's T-shirt was ripped, and he told officers he
received a glancing blow from one of the bricks,
though he said his wife did not actually throw the
brick at him. He also had small scratches on his right
elbow, which he attributed to the brick. He denied
making any aggressive strikes against his wife.


Ellis's wife had visible fresh swelling around her left
eye, and scratches on her right forearm.
The couple's 15-year-old son and 10-year-old
daughter were inside the house during the incident.
Neither could provide witness statements to the actu-
al incident.
Ellis, 32, 800 block of Laurel Ave., Venice, was found
to be the main aggressor because of injuries on his
wife's face that appeared to officers to be consistent
with fist strikes.
Ellis was arrested and charged with domestic bat-
tery. He received no bond.

Bra violence
The couple had known one another for nine years.
They were cohabitating and had been involved in an
intimate relationship for several weeks when the man
struck the woman, according to a Venice Police
Department report.
The victim said she was on the
telephone with a male friend when
her boyfriend unhooked her bra. She
said she asked him three separate
times to refasten it, but he refused.
Still on the phone, she rose from
the sofa and walked past him to the
bedroom to fasten her bra. When she I
did, she told the officer, her boyfriend "
smacked her across her right cheek
and threw a pillow at her face. Tomov
The boyfriend admitted he and
his girlfriend argued while she was on a cell phone.
He said when she stood up from the sofa, he made a
swatting motion toward the phone, causing it to fall to
the ground.
His version of the incident didn't explain the red-
ness the officers observed on the victim's cheek.
Emil Tomov, 41, 1000 block Pineland Ave., Venice,
was arrested and charged with domestic battery. He
received no bond.

BY GAE STEWART
REAL ESTATE COLUMNIST

Happy new year, and a very
prosperous one to all as we
begin not only a new year but a
new decade as well.
Having been a member for
more than 20 years, it is my
honor and pleasure to serve as
the 2010 Venice Area Board of
Realtors president. I have
always been a big supporter of
our board's community efforts,
and I am happy to announce
that we are off to a running
start with plans for several
fundraisers some new and
some continued.
Our Green Committee is
planning our first ever Green
Expo event in Venice on April 10
followed by a 5K Green Run on
April 18 with proceeds going to
our Habitat House project.
Our Special Events/Fund-
raising Committee is planning
its annual Hot Dogs for Habitat
event at the board office on
May 6. We hope to top the
$1,500 we raised last year.
Also watch for details on our
annual Golf Scholarship tour-
nament. This year we are plan-
ning to have the event on a
Saturday Sept. 25 so we
don't lose participants who
work during the week and
want to participate. We are pre-
senting $12,000 to local stu-
dents this year from last year's
events.
And of course we will once
again have our Affiliate Trade


Show/Chili Cook-Off, which is
quickly becoming a well-
attended and fun community
event.
Besides all our fundraising
efforts for the community, the
board also requires that mem-
bers abide by a strict code of
ethics in their real estate trans-
actions. We have a process in
place mandated by our
National Association of
Realtors to file a complaint if
you feel you have been misrep-
resented or mistreated in your
experience of buying or selling
a home. You may contact
Marlene Merkle at 484-0614 if
you need to file a complaint.
While we hope you don't find
the need, the board is here to
help you if you have issues.
The board also keeps close
tabs on legislation that affects
private property rights and
was a successful champion for
extending the homebuyer
credit.
Our local market is picking
up, as evidenced by our Mul-
tiple Listing Service statistics,
and we look forward to even a
better year in 2010.
Next week some of our lead-
ership will be attending the
Florida Association of Realtors
business meetings in Orlando.
We will return with some very
valuable information, which I
will share next time.

Gae Stewart is president of
the Venice Area Board of
Realtors Inc.

Contractors have torn down the old Nokomis office of Bank of
America, 1120 North Tamiami Trail, to make room for a Walgreen's
pharmacy. A new Bank of America office was built nearby and
opened a few weeks ago. Construction of the Walgreen's is expected
to be completed by July, according to Chris Logan of the Paradise
Group. Access to both the bank and the future Walgreen's will be a
shared driveway off Tamiami Trail and the original Laurel Road
access road, with all vehicles exiting onto Lake View Drive.


Get fresh at Top Crop Produce


ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


Two former Publix man-
agers have teamed up to open
Top Crop Produce, 1214 E.
Venice Ave., Suite C, near Va-
lenti's restaurant.
Operating the business are
owners Paul and Stephanie
Cettei and manager Rick Kri-
zen.
"We offer a large variety of
fresh fruits and vegetables
grown locally, collected and


transported in our own refrig-
erated box truck," said Paul
Cettei.
Fresh, local Venetian coffee
roasts, plants, flowers and
newspapers are available, and
they supply and deliver cus-
tom fruit baskets.
Originally from Chester
County, Pa., Paul Cettei came
to Venice 21 years ago. Both he
and Krizen are Venice High
School graduates and were
produce managers in local
Publix Supermarkets.
Originally from Chicago, Ill.,
Stephanie Cettei joined Venice
Hospital 12 years ago and is
the senior accountant at Ven-
ice Regional Medical Center.
The Cetteis are members of the
Venice Elementary School
Advisory Council and he is a
soccer coach for theYMCA and
Venice AreaYouth Soccer.
The store opens seven days
at 8 a.m. Call 485-2767.


Happenings
The convenience store is
open, but pumping gas ceased
last week at the Sunoco Gas
Station, 761 North Tamiami
Trail, Nokomis. "We hope to
change the tanks, but decided
not to do it right now," said
owner Pravan Patel.
Bella Brezza Restaurant,
900 Venetia Bay Blvd., opened
last week in the former Casey's
Grill across from Northern
Trust Bank by Sal Licata, who
previously operated Sal &
Tony's Pizzeria on the island.
Jim Kuhlman, with direc-
tors and guests, celebrated the
official opening of the new
headquarters of Florida
Shores Bank, 500 North U.S.
41 Bypass last week.
Extending and expanding
its services, Venice Regional
Medical Center opened an
outpatient surgery facility at
the Venice HealthPark, 1283


Jacaranda Blvd.
Venice Garden Works, West
Miami Avenue, closed at the
end of the year.
There is the possibility of a
Mexican restaurant opening
downtown later this year.
Church expands
The Center of Hope of
South County, formerly Fish-
ers of Men Bible Church, has
quadrupled its space by mov-
ing to 1216 E. Venice Ave. near
Valenti's restaurant.
Pastor Jim McCleland said
services had increased consid-
erably. With volunteers from
other churches, the church
assists 150 people at its Sat-
urday soup kitchen.
It is an interdominational
church with services on
Wednesday and Sundays. A
Russian church meets
Sunday afternoons on the
premises.


"I was addicted to drugs and
alcohol, experiencing a lot of
things we minister to, and I
was saved, with God putting
me in a position to help others
suffering as I did," said Mc-
Cleland.
He was ordained 10 years
ago by an organization in Tul-
sa, Okla.
In 1999 he founded the
Fishers of Men Bible Church at
the South Venice Galleria
Plaza. In 2005 it moved to U.S.
41 Bypass and a few weeks ago
to its new location, serving up
to 100 people on weekdays.
He said donations of cloth-
es, food and cash are always
welcome. Call 412-2044.

which owns Sharky's On
The Pier.
The terms included
filling in the blanks with
increased base rent, and
higher revenue as a per-
cent of sales. It also in-
cluded fixed dates under
which the restaurant
expansion was to take
place, addressing one of
Black's primary concerns
- that the expansion
could drag on for years.
Black also negotiated
concessions that were
not part of the original
contract, like prohibiting
the Pier Group from
encroaching into areas
already permitted and
designed. It agreed to
pressure wash the pier
four times annually and
maintain other areas,
freeing the city from dis-
puted maintenance
claims. And the Pier
Group agreed to increase
bodily injury insurance
coverage from $1 million
to $3 million.
"We're receiving some
significant financial ben-
efits," Black said.
Some council mem-
bers didn't see it that way.
Pier Group wouldn't
budge on two crucial ele-
ments: the 40-year dura-
tion of the lease or its
exclusive right to provide
food services in the sur-
rounding area.
The city wanted a
shorter lease, higher rent
and flexibility to, for
example, allow a hot-dog
stand on the west side of
Harbor Drive across from
Sharky's or perhaps at
Service Club Park or Bro-
hard Park. Pier Group's
stance led some mem-
bers to conclude the
owners were simply pre-
paring to flip the proper-
ty, injecting more anxiety
into the discussion.
Owners would later say
that wasn't their intent.
Too big
Council also objected
to the number of seats
planned for the restau-
rant expansion. Council
Member John Moore
complained the 40-seat
restaurant had already
grown to 298 seats with-
out any city approvals.
Where would it end?
"Nobody anticipated
the Environmental Pro-
tection Agency would
permit the number of
(parking spaces) they
did," said City Attorney
Bob Anderson.
City code allows three
seats per parking space,
and that drove the size of
the restaurant. At 375
parking spaces, that
equates to 1,125 restau-
rant seats. Because the
city and Pier Group split
50/50 the expense of
paving the parking lot,
the number of seats was
cut in half, but was still
too large, according to
some.
"You gave away the
farm," Moore said. "No-
body wants a 600-seat
restaurant."
Council members said
they wanted the number
of seats reduced. They
turned down the settle-
ment, and implored
Black to negotiate fur-
ther.
"I'm telling you," said
Anderson, "Marty has
gone to the well and
pulled as much water out
of this as he can. Is there a
chance he can pull one
more issue?Yeah, maybe.
But there's a chance that
by asking for one more
issue, the deal goes
south. He's telling you he
can't get you any more.


Concession
At the third shade
meeting, held Nov. 13,
2007, Black announced a
second settlement was
reached.
Pier Group agreed to



Recycle this
newspaper


SUN NEWSPAPERS 7A


reduce seating from 550-
600 to 350-400, Black an-
nounced. But it came at a
price. It insisted that if it
didn't get the advantage
of the parking spaces,
then it shouldn't have to
pay for that portion of the
parking lot improve-
ments.
Instead of paying 50
percent of the parking lot
improvements, it would
pay only 35 percent. In-
stead of Pier Group ow-
ing the city $600,000 to
$700,000 for the already
completed parking lot, it
would pay around
$400,000, a loss of $200,000
to $300,000 for the city.
And a smaller restau-
rant would mean lower
revenues for city coffers.
No one ever put a dollar
amount on what the city
lost in revenue from the
reduced seating.
Three new council
members had just been
elected (Mayor Ed Mart-
in, Sue Lang and Ernie
Zavodnyik) and were sit-
ting in their first shade
meeting. They agreed the
contract term was too
long, and base rent still
too low.
It wasn't enough.
Council rejected the sec-
ond offer.
By now formal man-
datory mediation efforts
had been exhausted.
Black would resort to in-
formal negotiations with-
out any attorneys present,
relying on the trust he
had built with Pier
Group's principals, Greg
Novak and Mike Pachota.
Damage control
On Feb. 26, 2008, a
fourth shade meeting
took place. Pier Group
was more convinced
than ever it had a win-
ning hand, said attorneys
representing the city.
Pier Group, if it pre-
vailed in court, would
seek attorney fees under
the lease; they could run
into hundreds of thou-
sands of dollars. The city,
on the other hand, could
not seek attorney fees
because its position was
that the lease was unen-
forceable. The city would
have to pay its own attor-
neys and could end up
footing the bill for both
sides.
At this point the dis-
cussion turned to dam-
age control.
It was no longer a mat-
ter of getting the best
deal, said Anderson: "I
think it's any deal, right
now."
Still not satisfied, coun-
cil agreed to hold another
shade meeting to deter-
mine new negotiating
points and more conces-
sions to be sought.

Next in the series: The
city's case erodes even
further.

One of the resources the group

which Sarasota County data have
been broken out by county epi-

"This is a real issue in the com-

But a recent draft of the com-
prehensive plan includes new lan-
guage that could negate that
agreement.
The new draft not only discour-
ages "density" but "intensity" in
high-risk coastal areas.
Land use attorney Jeff Boone

clude a homeowner from build-
ing a lanai or a pool in those
areas.

She said that the majority of
those District 12 deaths, as well as
nonfatal unintentional drug poi-

Actual death due to uninten-
tional poisonings includes things
such as the use of prescription
medications mixed together at a

The FAA notes that in

"Although we encour-

gain control of RPZ lands,
the FAA is not mandating

Vernace acknowledg-
ed that the 2000 airport
map depicted a C-II RPZ
with incorrect di-
mensions, but neverthe-
less, he wrote, the RPZ
still exists, "and it still
exists at the C-II stan-
dard, regardless of how it
is depicted on the ALP."
The city spent more
than two years research-
ing and considering the
merits of a downgrade
before making the formal
request. Throughout nu-
merous workshops the
city's airport consultant,
DY Associates, said the
chances of success were
slim, but was hopeful a
compromise could be
worked out.
Mayor Ed Martin pre-
viously said he would
consider appealing a
negative decision to the
regional FAA office in
Atlanta, and if necessary
to the national office


Washington, D.C.
Reactions
Martin said he wasn't
surprised at the re-
sponse, and said council
would comment further
on the matter at the Jan.
28 airport workshop.
At Tuesday's council
meeting residents Bob
Dennis, Mike Rafferty
and Walter Hake urged
council to, in essence,
defy the FAA and submit
a B-II airport layout plan.
Rafferty said the worst
case scenario is the city
would have to go without
federal funds and could
survive on its own.
Chuck Schmieler,
president of the Venice
Airport Business Associ-
ation, called the FAA's
response an unequivocal
rejection of this tact.
"The letter was clear.
Through our consulta-
tions with the FAA, (I can
tell you) this was not
done capriciously. This


thing has found its way
from Atlanta (the region-
al FAA office) to (Wash-
ington) D.C. This is at
least the third time the
city has pitched the idea
of a B-II, and it's the third
time it was declined. We
think it's time to move
forward," Schmieler said.
He thanked citizens
and activists for their
part in improving traffic
counts and raising other
issues, and suggested
the city submit an ALP
as a C-II, seek modifi-
cations to standards
where possible, and get
runway 4-22 under a
grant so it can be re-
constructed as the noise
abatement runway.
"Making this the de-
fining battle of this coun-
cil is not constructive. It's
not productive. And it's
not good for this com-
munity," Schmieler said.

OUR VIEW


Medicaid scare no reason to burden counties


A s they say, a part-time Legisla-
ture only has a couple months
a year to mess things up. But as
long as the state bureaucracy churns
relentlessly year-round, there is still
mischief to be done out of session.
We've railed repeatedly about law-
makers' reliance on cost pass-
throughs, unfunded mandates and
budgetary micromanagement. Now
the Agency for Health Care Ad-
ministration, heeding a call from Gov.
Charlie Crist to cut its budget 10 per-
cent, has proposed raising county
contributions for Medicaid nursing
home patients by 367 percent from
$55 per month per nursing home res-
ident covered by Medicaid to $202 per
month.
Medicaid spending consumes a
huge chunk of the state's budget. Next
year it will exceed $6 billion. Com-
bined with the federal matching
funds, it will cost about $18.8 billion


to pay for the 2.7 million Floridians
covered by Medicaid.
Not surprising, given Florida's
demographics, nursing-home resi-
dents compose a large percentage of
Medicaid recipients. In fact, two-
thirds of Florida's nursing-home resi-
dents are on Medicaid. Nearly 15 per-
cent of all Medicaid spending in
Florida in this year's budget, some
$2.7 billion, is for nursing-home care,
according to the state's Office of
Economic & Demographic Research.
The numbers are daunting, no
doubt. But a surprising thing has hap-
pened on the state's way to economic
ruin. Medicaid spending has not
exploded as former Gov. Jeb Bush,
former House Speaker Marco Rubio
and others predicted when reform
passed in 2005. Drug price caps and
state authorization requirements for
nonapproved drugs are part of the
reason the 2009-10 figure is $3.2 bil-


lion less than the state forecast in
2005.
Despite those changes, the 2009-
10 Medicaid estimate is far greater
than projections for future years and
actual spending increases in past
years. A huge factor in the increase is
an estimated 15 percent increase in
state spending on nursing-home resi-
dents that disappears in 2010-11 pro-
jections. What's that about?
Given the track record of flawed
Medicaid projections Bush once
said it would reach $50 billion by 2015
- and budgetary pass-throughs, it's
premature to concoct a new cost-
sharing formula based on an over-
simplified mandate from Crist.
Charlotte County budgeted $1.23
million for Medicaid in its 2009-10
budget. In Sarasota County, Medicaid
totaled $2.14 million, including
$618,077 for nursing-home residents.
It may be that local governments


may have to shoulder a rising per-
centage of Medicaid costs (in addition
to costs they took on when the state
closed its mental hospitals and turn-
ed county jails into psych wards).
Some argue that the county share of
Medicaid has remained static while
health care costs have risen.
A state report issued the last time
AHCA officials suggested a county
Medicaid hike found county contri-
butions had fallen from 10.56 percent
in 1978-79 to only 1.68 percent by
2002.
The appropriate ratio should result
from an inclusive discussion between
health care and budget officials, local
governments, lawmakers and resi-
dents.
Once a new cost-sharing formula
is adopted, it will be very difficult to
undo. Now is not the time to add
another burden on local govern-
ments.


Hello, I'm Lang


LANG CAPASSO
PUBLISHER


I would like to say "Hi" to all
my old friends here in Venice
and a special "Hello" to the
ones I will be meeting.
As I am sure you know by
now, my name is Lang Ca-
passo and I am now the pub-
lisher of the Venice Gondolier
Sun. I will be following 31 years
of excellence of service in both
the paper and the community
it serves.
Bob Vedder has been an
example of what a person can
do in making the Venice
Gondolier Sun one of the pre-
mier newspapers in America.
His service to the paper and
the community has been a
benchmark we can all draw
from.
My tenure with this compa-
ny has spanned 35 years. I
started at the Sun Coast Times
in 1975, which was bought by
Derek Dunn-Rankin in 1977. I
continued on as a salesperson
but moved up to be the sales
manager of the Venice Gon-
dolier. Then I moved to our
Sarasota Sun newspaper,
which we discontinued pub-
lishing but which afforded me
the opportunity to be trans-
ferred to the Englewood Sun,
where I have been the general
manager for the past 20 years.
Now I have gone full circle
and come back to the Venice
Gondolier Sun. As a further ref-
erence, my family moved to
Venice in 1960, so you might
say I am fairly familiar with
Venice, and in many cases the
people lucky enough to call
Venice home. Both my chil-
dren graduated from Venice
High School and were in-
volved quite heavily in Venice
sports, from tee-ball through
Venice Little League, up to
Venice High school varsity.
In following Bob Vedder as
only the second publisher in


Sun Coast Media Group's own-
ership of the Venice Gondolier
Sun I can only hope to do all
that Bob has done for the com-
munity and for the paper. Un-
der his direction the Gondolier
Sun has won so many awards
that I will not even begin to try
to cover them. The same holds
true for his achievements in
the newspaper industry and
the community as a whole.
It has been my pleasure to
work with Bob for more than
30 years, and I know his well-
deserved retirement will leave
an opening in our company
that I can only hope to fill.
When people hear the word
"change," a certain amount of
apprehension sets in, and that
is only natural. For employees
the first thought is, how is this
going to affect me? Readers
might be thinking, how is this
going to affect my newspaper
that I have been subscribing to
for so long? In both cases I can
only say, give me a chance to
find my way and get to know
and grasp all this.
I have gotten to know many
at the Gondolier Sun over the
years. I have hired a few of
them, worked alongside a few
of them and had occasion to
talk to many others over the
years. I can say that I am most
fortunate to be working with
some of the most loyal, dedi-
cated and hard-working peo-
ple I have come across. It is my
good fortune to be working
with you.
To our loyal subscribers -
and hopefully, new readers -
with the excellent editorial
department under the leader-
ship of Bob Mudge, the paper
will continue to grow and
bring you the news you are
looking for in a product that
covers Venice and South
County like no other media
around.
As I said, I know many of
you in the community, and
one of my goals is to meet
many others. Let me get set-
tled in and maybe we can meet
and chat. I have already had
two people call me.
Like the Chinese philoso-
pher said, "The longest jour-
ney begins with a single step."
Lang Capasso writes an
occasional column for this
page.

Bring on some global warming

Cold. Good morning, Let'em Have It. Is anyone rolling over
with laughter yet over global warming? God knows how to make
a laughingstock out of world-wise men who think they know
everything. I hope they freeze their blanks off.


Potpourri. Many thanks to
the kind people, mostly busi-
nesses and organizations, who
have donated benches to the
SCAT bus stops, especially in
Nokomis and Venice. I can't
help noticing it. These will be
of great help to people waiting
for the bus. At least they won't
have to sit on the ground. I
urge more businesses to do-
nate benches and even apply
their logo for advertising pur-
poses. The public really appre-
ciates it. After these nice
words, I hate to mention
something, but I really feel I
have to. I'm not a fan of the
Legacy Trail. In fact, it leaves a
bad taste in my mouth. Why the
Department of Transportation
used the grant for luxurious
shelters and benches along the
Legacy Trail is beyond me, espe-
cially when they are needed at
the bus stops along 41. Some
nonprofit organizations also
gave a lot of money to this ven-
ture. I live close to it, and I don't
see a lot of people on it at all,
except in tourist season. I don't
begrudge them, but it irks me
when I think the railroad tracks
were taken up to put in this
Legacy Trail when eventually
what we need around here is
trains.
Code breakers. Does any-
one ever wonder why no one
wants a Habitat House built
next to or across the street
from their own? Take a ride
down Olympia Road down
here in South Venice. That will
answer your question. I have
repeatedly called code en-
forcement and the people who
live in these Habitat homes do
just enough to squeak by only
to let the problems go bad
again garbage, broken win-
dows, overgrown weeds you
name it, and not to mention


Let 'em


Have It


that it looks like a playground.
There are kids all over the place.
I raised my kids. I love kids and I
have grandchildren, but I don't
want to live next door to a play-
ground. And that's what it looks
like, an unkept playground. Our
Commissioner Shannon needs
to take a ride past the house,
take a look at it and maybe
change some of the codes.
Thirty days is too long to fix up a
code violation. We need to keep
property values up, now more
than ever. Miss Staub, please
take a ride passed these houses
on Olympia Road.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Not all Habitat
home owners fail to maintain their
property, and not all code viola-
tors are Habitat home owners.
No ties. Should the city
withdraw from ICLEI because
it has ties to the U.N. and its
Climate Control Initiatives? I
would say yes, absolutely. We
do not need to be tied to any
international rules, regulations
or to take away United States'


sovereignty. So yes, we need to
withdraw from that.
Hypocritical. Marriage is
sacred. Tiger has created head-
lines, but this time, it's strictly
negative. Making such a joke
out of the special bond called
marriage is pathetic. If what
we read is even close to being
true, how can he offer and she
accept money to stay with him
just so it looks good in the eyes
of the public? The only thing
he regrets is being caught. He
wasn't going to confess that he
was living a lie until the nega-
tive publicity hit the scene. The
ladies were putting the heat on
him. He started his song and
dance when the women came
out of the closet and put pres-
sure on him. If he truly cared
about his wife and kids, none
of this would have ever hap-
pened. His actions won't hurt
his golf game and golf winnings
and his love life, but it will cer-
tainly hurt his endorsements, at
least with those who appreciate
what marriage means a good
marriage. Too bad this mar-
riage, or lack of it, had to
become so public. It makes all
players look stupid. If she stays
with him, he will brag about
what he got away with, and act
sorry about it in public. If she
takes the money and runs,
which she certainly should,
she will be cast as money-hun-
gry. It's a no-win situation for
her unless someone finds
something in her closet. Wow!
The old adage, "stand by your
man (or woman)" is certainly a
joke when it comes to cheaters
in a marriage. If he were a real
man, this nonsense wouldn't
have happened in the first
place. Staying together for
image purposes or the sake of
the kids is about as hypocriti-
cal as it gets and is truly living a
lie.
No good. The thing about
Ed Martin, Sue Lang and Ernie
Zavodnyik running for re-elec-
tion is absolutely, positively no.
They've cost us enough money
and I don't see that they've
done any good.

LETTERS FROM
OUR READERS

Brighter ideas
than solar

Editor:
Is home-rooftop-in-
stalled solar power a realis-
tic solution to green ener-
gy? A writer recently noted
that his rooftop solar unit,
with a $20,000 government
subsidy, cost him only
$6,000 out-of-pocket. His
power bill will be cut about
$100 a month, making the
unit a good investment on
his $6,000 (but not on the
taxpayers' $20,000).
Reduction in energy
use, not more power pro-
duction, provides our best
route to green energy. I
recently had my 10 SEER
efficiency air conditioner
replaced with a 16 SEER
unit. This unglamorous act
will cut my air-condition-
ing electric use about $300
per year. This $300-a-year
saving is a nice return on a
unit that cost just $4,200 in-
stalled and was needed
anyway.
More insulation or in-
stalling a light-colored roof
is highly cost-effective.
Resisting a sales pitch to
buy an SUV instead of a
fuel-efficient vehicle saves
enough energy each year
to air-condition a home for
several months. Buy a
1,700-square-foot home
instead of a monster mod-
el and cut air-conditioning
costs in half, leaving a bun-
dle to deposit in the bank.
Good laws cut energy
demand. Outlaw incan-
descent bulbs. Require
super insulation on new
homes. Permit sale only of
top-efficiency appliances
and vehicles.
But aren't such laws "so-
cialistic," interfering with
personal choice? No, they
are rules, assuring every-
one plays the same energy
game.
Speaking of laws, who
came up with the law that
citizens must give $20,000
of their taxes to anyone
wanting to install a solar
unit on their root?

Obituary charge
is a death tax
Editor:
I am finally mad enough
to write you a letter.
Several weeks ago a
neighbor died and his
wife called me and asked
me to help her with the
obituary. She gave me the
basic information and a
picture. I put all this to-
gether and sent it to both
the Venice Gondolier Sun
and the Sarasota Herald-
Tribune.
They wrote me right
back and said they would
only accept information
from a funeral home or
cremation society He was
going to be buried in an-
other state, so I then called
the National Cremation
Society in Sarasota, told
them what I had and said
that I would send it to
them and they could take
my name off and put their
name on the information.
Then the next day the
Herald-Tribune called and
said they had received the
information and would be
charging her $265. Here she
is in grief and now they are
giving her some more grief.
Newspapers are willing
to put in large pictures of
dogs, cats and babies but
not small pictures of their
past subscribers who have
died. Isn't there something
terribly wrong with this
picture? No wonder people


are canceling their sub-
scriptions.
Ann Dodderidge
Venice
Congress
isn't listening
Editor:
Will the ethics commit-
tees of Congress impose
sanctions on the partici-
pants in the bribery com-


mitted to coerce members
to vote for so-called health-
care reform?
If such a bill should be
enacted, one recourse
would be to elect congres-
sional candidates who will
be committed to repeal
the act, or its provisions
that threaten the best
health-care system in the
world, increase the cost of
health care and the na-


tional debt, as well as de-
crease our freedom. An-
other recourse would be to
challenge vigorously the
constitutionality of those
provisions.
Both houses of Con-
gress have ignored over-
whelming public opposi-
tion to the health-care
reform being proposed. Do

solve and leadership to

Venice wins sixth straight


MR. SHEEPSHEAD
COLUMNIST


Cold temps


hurt fishing

When are we going to see
70 degrees again?
This cold weather has
really become a problem for
the local fishing community.
Bait and tackle shops, guides
and many more wait all year
for the snowbird and tourist
business. Now they have lost
almost a month of business.
The back bays and creeks
are loaded with dead fish.
Hopefully, it is from the
extreme cold and not red
tide. Normally, we will get a
cold front that lasts about
two days. This season, it has
been one after another. The
other morning we came out-
side and had to chop the
frost off our car window. In
my 20-something years here,
I do not ever remember
doing this.
My guess is the
Intracoastal is the place to
fish. The sheepies and pom-
pano should be there. I
would use a sand spike and
just wait for the bite. If you
catch a pomp, the odds are
that there are more around.
They definitely travel in
schools. I would use sand
fleas or fiddler crabs. The
sheepies also love those
baits.
Hopefully, this season will
be a better for sheepies than
last season. My fish wish is
that they change the rules on
sheepies by increasing the
length by an inch to 13 inch-
es and decrease the number
of keepers from 15 to 10.Who
needs 15 of these hard-to-fil-
let fish a day? Remember,
many people catch their
limit day after day.
Well, fellow Sheepshead-
ites, the time has come to say
goodbye until next week.

Mr Sheepshead is Dave
Hack. Contact him at

Venice limited Port Charlotte to just three
points in the second quarter while scoring the
final nine as the Indians defeated the Pirates,
54-42, Tuesday in a Class 5A-District 10 game
at Venice High.
"I just think we made more shots than they
did," said Venice coach Steve Cavallaro about
the difference. "We capitalized a little more
on our shots."
The Indians (9-4 overall, 4-0 district) led
11-9 after one quarter.
In the second quarter, Port Charlotte
scored the first three points to grab a 12-11
lead. The Indians were held scoreless for
nearly four minutes in the second quarter.
"We talked in practice that they are a disci-
plined team," said Cavallaro. "They are going
to do their stuff and try and do it exactly right.
We are going to have to be more disciplined
and focus and do our stuff."

All but one Venice High
wrestler finished with a win-
ning record including three
unbeaten and five with only
one loss as the Indians pum-
meled five opponents in win-
ning the Southeast Duals on
Saturday at Southeast High in
Bradenton.
The Indians outscored
opponents, 299-82, in their five
matches with wins over
Southeast (53-22), Palmetto
(54-21), Braden River (69-3),
Bayshore (75-6) and Lemon
Bay (48-30).
Palmetto, Southeast and
Lemon Bay all ended with 3-2
records.
"We had three guys go 5-0
(record) and five guys go 4-1,"
said Venice assistant coach
Dave Porvaznik. "Even those 4-
1 a couple of those guys should
have went 5-0 too. Those eight
guys I'm proud of them. To be
honest, I'm proud of all the
guys. They wrestled well. They
all came to wrestle. They all did
what they were supposed to do.
They were a team today and it
showed."
Porvaznik was filling in for
head coach Dan Kelly, who was
coaching the Venice Wrestling
Club in a tournament.
Capturing their weight


However, Venice came back in the second
half of the quarter to score the final nine
points while holding the Pirates (9-6, 1-4)
scoreless. Senior Zach Christian, who paced
Venice with 21 points, tallied seven of the
nine points.
Christian also led Venice with nine
rebounds.
"I thought Zach Christian did a great job of
offensive rebounding," said Cavallaro. "When
we did miss, we got a couple of second-
chance shots."
In fact, Christian scored the first two points
of the third quarter to give him nine straight
points over a span of five minutes to give
Venice a 22-12 lead.
Port Charlotte got within, 26-21 with 4:11
left in third quarter but Venice went ahead,
37-24 on a jumper by Joey Boyle with 5.5 sec-
onds left.

ended up getting the pin as Venice swept the competition for the victory.


classes for Venice were Matt
Parker (103 pounds), Jeremy
Erickson (119) and Mike
Herndon (215), who all had 5-0
records.
For Parker and Erickson, it
was their second tournament
championship this season fol-
lowing up the Dimond Duals in
November. Both also had three
pins.
Parker raised his record to
19-5 while Erickson is 20-2 on
the season.
For Herndon, the wins were
his first on varsity. The junior,


who came out for wrestling for
the first time this season, saw
his first varsity action on
Wednesday against Manatee.
"He's very physical," said
Porvaznik about Herndon.
"He's an athlete. A natural ath-
lete and he listens well. As a
coaching staff, we expect a lot
of good things out of him. He
really has helped our other
upper weights. He doesn't
know a lot about wrestling but
he knows how to be physical in
a good positive sportsmanship
way."


Venice's Zach Christian passes the ball
to a teammate during the Indians' game
with Port Charlotte on Tuesday at Venice
High. Christian led Venice with 21 points
in the Indians' 54-42 victory.


In the Duals, he ended with
three pins.
Venice junior Frank Trigg
went 2-0 at 160 pounds while
Anders Ullrich went 3-1 at 171
pounds.
Finishing with 4-1 records in
the tournament were Justin
Shaner (112 pounds), Larson
Ullrich (130), Colton Schuchert
(135), Jovanny Concepcion
(140) and Garrett Johnson
(189).
"We have a philosophy, 'if
you do your job, winning the
match will take care of itself,' "
said Porvaznik. "The team will
take care of itself, if you do your
individual job. That's exactly
what happened. They did their
job and as a team we won
because of it."
Schuchert's lone loss was a 7-
6 decision to Lemon Bay's
Christian Brody while Concep-
cion dropped a 6-4 decision to
Lemon Bay's Emerson Daxbury
in their final matches.
Junior Jessy Lewellyn (125),
Ashton Aker (145), Jackie Zos-
mair (152) and Devin Balsinger
(285) won three matches for
the Indians while Eric Medel
(171) and Matt Frady (160)
each won a match.

BERKELEY PREP EDGES VENICE: Venice got
goals in each half on breakaways but it wasn't
enough againstTampa Berkeley Prep on
Monday night in Tampa.
The loss snapped a four-match winning
streak for the Lady Indians (12-5-2).
Venice's Dana LaRocque scored her 25th
goal of the season while Tina Trujic added her
19th goal against the Lady Buccaneers goal-
keeper Bryane Heaberlin, who was just named
to the U.S. Women's Under-17 team.
According to coach Sheldon Chamberlain,
LaRocque had a game-tying shot deflected on a
jump by Heaberlin.
Berkeley Prep (13-4-2) scored two of its
goals on a penalty kick and corner kick.
Chamberlain credited Tori Bolyard and
Yazmin Velez with outstanding defense as well
as midfielders Colleen Murphy, Jessy Weber and
Cassandra Kerrigan.

of illness resulted in a 0-0 tie for Venice against
North Port on Tuesday night at Powell-Davis
Stadium.
The tie came a day after the Indians (4-8-1)
blanked Port Charlotte.
"We definitely weren't as good as last night;'
said Venice coach Seth Jones. 'The guys were
definitely tired.'
Venice possessed the ball the first 10-15
minutes and had some shots but most went to
the North Port keeper.
"We had some save opportunities as they
were in front of the goal;' said Jones. "Anytime
we play North Port it's a good game."

BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


Venice High senior Joe lorio's dream
and goal of playing Division I collegiate
baseball is coming true.
The 5-foot-ll, 165 pound short-
stop/pitcher signed a letter of intent
with University of North Florida out of
Jacksonville in December.
"I didn't see it happening until they
(UNF) came along," said lorio. "It was
surprising."
UNF first watched him play in an
off-season tournament for his travel
team Florida Baseball Academy. They
talked to his coach and then watched
him play a couple of weekends and got
interested. They got in touch with
Venice High head coach Craig Faulkner
and the process started.
Iorio also had looks from Cornell
University, Florida Gulf Coast Universi-
ty and Florida Atlantic University.
As a junior, Iorio hit .367 with 17 RBI,
16 runs scored, six doubles, one triple
and six stolen bases. The right-handed
pitcher finished with a 3-2 record and
2.80 ERA in 40 innings. He also had 43
strikeouts and four saves.
"I can't wait," said lorio. "College and
baseball. It's a whole new level and I
can't wait."
"He is just a big asset for a team,"
said Faulkner. "On top of that most
importantly, he is a great student. He
was the MVP of our team last year as
a junior. He is also academic award
winner for the football and baseball
team. A great combination for North
Florida and they are lucky to have
him."
lorio carries a 4.5 weighted grade-
point average.
He will be receiving an equivalent of


a full scholarship with a combination of
athletic and academic scholarships.
The 17-year-old credits his dad,
Frank, and his coaches for his success.
"I wouldn't have been able to do any
of this without him," said lorio. "Ever
since I was little he's been coaching me,
pushing me and taking me to camps.
He's the main guy that got me to where
I am."
lorio will be playing infield and
pitching for the Ospreys.
"They looked at me mainly as short-
stop," said lorio. "They saw me pitch
too and really liked my pitching. They
said I am going to do both at first then
they are going to evaluate me and see if
I am going to move into one or see if I
can handle both. I wouldn't mind doing
both."
Iorio will be coached by Raymond
"Smoke" Laval, who was Faulkner's for-
mer coach when he attended Louisiana
State University.
UNF finished with a 23-31 overall
record and 15-15 in the Atlantic Sun
Conference last season.
"It's a really good fit for Joe," said
Faulkner. "They are really excited to
have him. He is a guy than can go up
there and play all the positions in the
infield. He is probably going to pitch a
little bit for them. He is the type of play-
er every coach wants on a team. He is a
worker. He handles his bat well, can hit
behind runners and hit for power. He
uses all the fields. He is one of those
guys who can adjust to difficult pitch-
ing. Defensively he is a solid player. He
has good arm strength and play on
both sides of infield. He has good speed
and is a savvy base runner. He can steal
bases for them."

The temperature at Powell-Davis
Stadium was cold on Monday night but
it didn't seem to bother Venice or
sophomore Matt McGuire.
McGuire heated up the Venice fans
by scoring two goals in the Indians' 3-0
victory over Port Charlotte in the final
Class 5A-District 10 match of the regu-
lar season.
The win is the first in the district for
the Indians after losing two of their
other three district matches by single
goals.
The Indians (4-8 overall, 1-3 district)
sealed up No. 4 seed in the district and
will play No. 5 seed Port Charlotte (5-6-
4, 0-2-2) in the opening round of the
districts on Jan. 23 at home.
"Great game all-around," said Venice
coach Seth Jones. "Very happy. Very
proud. This is what we are working to
towards districts. That was the moti-
vation tonight. I told them, you want to
have a home district match, here is
your shot. You've got to come out and
play crisp. That is what they did
tonight."
After only scoring five goals in their
first seven matches, Venice's offense
has come alive over the last five match-
es by tallying nine goals.
Venice's passing was crisp and on
target but it was a foul which helped
produced the first goal.
'A big change from beginning of sea-
son," said McGuire about the team's
passing. "In the beginning of the sea-
son, we were real slow and now we are
doing great."
Junior Joey Carlin scored on a direct
kick from the far left wing just outside
the penalty box. His shot curved into
the far upper corner past Port Charlotte
goalkeeper Alex Akers in the ninth
minute. It was his fifth goal of the sea-
son.
The Pirates had a great chance to
score in the 18th minute but Venice
keeper Mason Johnson came out and


kicked the ball away from Port
Charlotte's Oshanny Oats.
Over the last three matches,
McGuire has been on fire by scoring all
four goals of the season in that span.
"It's a good confidence builder to
have a 3-0 shutout at the end of the sea-
son just before the upcoming tourna-
ment," said McGuire.
Venice went ahead 2-0 as McGuire
got pass from Carlin on a through ball
deep down the left sideline. McGuire
then left-footed his shot into the lower
far corner of the net in the 30th minute.
In the first half, Venice had a 6-5 edge
in shots and 2-1 edge in corners.
The Indians kept up the offensive
pressure in the second half and used
their pin-point passing to keep the ball
in the Pirates half of the field.
Venice increased its lead to 3-0 in the
48th minute.
Junior Steve Ferretti's corner kick
was headed into the near comer of the
net by McGuire.
Venice's defense was led by sopho-
more DJ Hansen, junior Alex Collins,
Ferretti and sophomore Brett Swilde.
It was this defense and Johnson's
goal keeping, which kept Port Charlotte
from scoring.
"We poked a few in on him (Akers)
and had a nice direct kick from Joey
Carlin," said Jones. "Defense played
well and my goalkeeper, Mason
Johnson, wow, what a game."
With 16 minutes remaining, Port
Charlotte took a shot and Johnson
came out and dove for the ball to stop
it. With him out of the goal box, the
Pirates' Oats had a clear shot at the
goal. However, Swikle was there to head
the ball out.
"That's what we've been working on
all year just trying to play mistake free,"
said Jones. "Tonight for the most part
we did that."
In total, Venice had seven corner
kicks and 11 shots while Port Charlotte
had 12 shots and one comer kick.

Habitat, Thrivent celebrate milestone


Lutheran financial
organization finishes
its 2,000th home
STAFF REPORT

Habitat for Humanity South Sara-
sota County Inc. recently celebrated a
milestone when the national organiza-
tion marked the completion of the
2,000th home built in partnership with
Thrivent Financial for Lutherans.
The partnership, called Thrivent
Builds with Habitat for Humanity, has
resulted in the 2,000 homes being
built in four years. Habitat South
Sarasota County built one home as
part of that effort.
"The Thrivent Builds alliance has
helped us increase the number of
families served in our community,"
said Judith Wilcox, HFHSSC executive
director. "We are so grateful for
Thrivent's support of our efforts to
provide decent, affordable homes in
partnership with families in need."
While Thrivent Financial provided
at least 65 percent of the funding for
each of the 2,000 homes, local volun-
teers many of them Thrivent mem-
bers and members of area Lutheran
congregations assisted with con-
struction and helped raise additional
funds.


The four-year Thrivent Builds part-
nership will continue in 2010, Wilcox
said. To date, $125 million has been
used by the partnership to build
homes across the United States and
in 30 other countries. That makes
Thrivent Financial one of Habitat's
largest allies, Wilcox said.
Thrivent Financial for Lutherans is
a not-for-profit, Fortune 500 financial
services membership organization
with approximately 2.6 million mem-
bers. As a not-for-profit organization,
Thrivent Financial creates and sup-
ports national outreach programs
and activities that help congrega-
tions, schools, charitable organiza-
tions and individuals in need.
Habitat for Humanity International
is an ecumenical Christian ministry
that welcomes all people dedicated to
the cause of eliminating poverty
housing. Since its founding in 1976,
Habitat has built more than 300,000
houses worldwide, providing shelter
for more than 1.5 million people.

Idolatry, high school-style

BY KATIE DUNN-RANKIN
GUEST WRITER-.

Jan. 18, at 7 p.m., five Sarasota County performers will gather at The
Players Theatre in Sarasota to sing their hearts out. Their common
goal is to become the next High School Idol.
Televised annually, the show is said to be the Education Channel's
most popular show. It is based on "American Idol," the TV show that
features contestants who compete to be crowned the best singer in the
country. But in this case, the students compete to be crowned the best
singer in Sarasota County.
Two of the finalists are from Venice. Emily Mounce and Kaitlyn
Terpstra are frequent performers at Venice Theatre.You might have seen
them last summer in "West Side Story," in which Mounce played the part
of Maria and Terpstra played Anita.
"You have a great future ahead of you as a singer," Idol judge Cliff
Roles told Mounce. "Fabulous performance ... you have profited from
your musical theater experience."
After Terpstra's songs, some of the judges' comments were, -
"Performances on the Venice stage have stood you in good stead" and
"sweet and sultry at the same time."
Mounce and Terpstra are considered by some to be the front-runners
in this competition. They have a lot in common as the two Venice finalists
in High School Idol. Both girls are juniors in high school, spent their child-
hood performing at Venice Theatre and just so happen to be close friends
who have known each other since they were 4 years old and Daisy Girl
Scouts.
The two friends don't treat High School Idol as a competition.
"It's been more fun than anything," Mounce said. "We've been hav- "
ing a great time. We're not too worried about competing with each
other .... We both bring something different to the table and both have
a lot of fun."
The girls are loyal to one another.
"I wouldn't trade it for anything," Terpstra said. "She makes me feel
calm backstage and I literally hope she wins."
Idol background
In October, High School Idol held its initial auditions at The Players
Theatre. Fifty high school students sang in the initial round for the judges. I:IHT,:, C'.i, ;E'. ,'- E iE TH-EATRE
Contestants were required to prepare a song for the audition that they Above, Kaitlyn Terpstra and Emily Mounce in a scene

they need vocal training.
"The standard of High School Idol has increased over the years, and you just
can't practice with a hairbrush in front of the mirror," Roles said. "You need
to gather experience on stage or at least in front of a microphone, and you
need to always strive for more .... This can only be done through prop- j
er vocal training."
Next year, the process will start all over again with auditions. Somi cn-
testants will return and try to go further in the competition, and a,, i\\ \.

At the semifinals, performers were required to sing a holiday song and
another song of their own choice. The holiday songs the teenagers
picked ranged from "Santa, Baby" to "Grown-Up Christmas List."
In the second half of the show, the song selections varied greatly. The
songs that carried five singers to the next round included "Let's Hear It
For the Boy," "Feeling Good," "The Girl in 14-G," "Don't Rain on My
Parade" and "I Like It."

Union rep advises silence in response to harassment


DEAR ABBY
COLUMNIST

DEAR ABBY: I'm at
my wit's end at work.
There's a woman in her
early 30s here who is out
of the closet, and very
vocal about being a
butch lesbian. I'm
straight, happily married
and 20 years older than
she is.
Abby, she keeps hit-
ting on me! I've told her
I'm not interested and


that I'm straight. She
then makes comments
that she has converted
other women. She does
this in front of others and
it's mortifying. Yes, I'm
old-fashioned and reli-
gious, and I do consider
her sexual behavior
immoral. I am also tired
of feeling like I have to
apologize for my reli-
gious beliefs.
I have spoken to my
union rep, but was told
not to create trouble for
another union member.
I'm sorry, but I don't like
this sexual harassment. I
want to go to HR about it,
but I'm afraid it will start
a riot in the union if she's
fired over this complaint.
There have been other
complaints about her
harassing people. Please
advise. BEING HARAS-


SED IN ILLINOIS
DEAR HARASSED:
Your union rep is wrong.
Would the person tell
you to tolerate sexual
harassment if your har-
asser was a man? The
behavior you have de-
scribed is against the law
whether it's done by a
male or female, regard-
less of sexual orientation.
Tell your rep you want it
stopped immediately, and
that if it isn't, you WILL
take it to HR.Your religious
beliefs do not enter into
this. The woman's behav-
ior is creating a hostile
work environment.
DEAR ABBY: I'm a 26-
year-old minor league
baseball player. I have
been involved in two
serious relationships. My
first was a girl I became
engaged to when I was 20


and in college playing
baseball there. I loved her
and was committed to
her, but she was jealous of
my "first love" my
sport. She constantly
tried in subtle ways to get
me to quit. After we had a
huge fight, she finally
threw my ring back at me.
I stayed single for a
couple of years and then
met a woman and began
slowly dating her. The first
year our relationship was
good, but over the next
three years the same is-
sues arose and I was hear-
ing, "You're selfish." "You
don't love me." "Grow up!"
Being a professional
baseball player has been
my dream since I was 5,
and I'm not ready to give
up on it yet. Both these
women continue to call
and text me crying be-


cause it didn't work out.
I'm angry at them for not
supporting me, but I also
feel sad for them because
all they did was love me.
What do I do about them
and about trusting
women with my heart
and dreams? LOVE-
LESS IN THE MIDWEST
DEAR LOVELESS: Stop
allowing those women to
lay a guilt trip on you. I'm
sure when you met them
you made it clear that
you wanted a career in
baseball and the sacri-
fice that would mean for
all parties concerned.
Instead of wasting more
time looking back, tell
these women goodbye
once and for all and stop
responding to their calls
and messages.
To be the wife of a pro-
fessional athlete takes a


special kind of woman,
someone with a strong
sense of independence
because of the number
and length of the
inevitable separations
that come with the sports
business. Look around at
your teammates who
have successful mar-
riages, then ask them if
they know any eligible
ladies.
I can't guarantee you
won't strike out, but I'm
willing to wager that the
odds of hitting a home
run will be better.

by Abigail Van Buren,
also known as Jeanne
Phillips, and was found-
ed by her mother, Pauline
Phillips. Write Dear Abby

through Girl Scouts and other commu-
nity organizations on the Gulf Coast.
With her Girl Scout troop, Peacock
started Project Kindness to help pro-
vide school supplies and holiday toys to
children in need in Sarasota and
DeSoto counties.
Peacock also helped finance a
school in Cambodia through donations
from her community. She holds an
annual toy drive for the All Children's
Hospital in St. Petersburg. More than
3,500 youth have benefited from the


drive, and more than 500 people have
joined her crusade donating their time
and resources.
Peacock is a member of the Girl
Scouts of Gulfcoast Florida Healthy
Girls Initiative, in which she served as a
teen leader to help facilitate several ser-
vice projects to educate the communi-
ty about healthy living.
On Oct. 30, the Vancouver 2010
Olympic Torch Relay began in Victoria,
British Columbia, and is racing its way
through Canada. For more than three
months, 12,000 torchbearers will carry
the Olympic flame on its 45,000 kilome-
ter journey through 1,000 Canadian
communities. The Vancouver 2010
Olympic Torch Relay will be the longest
relay held by a single country in the his-
tory of the Olympic Games.
All of the torchbearers selected by
Coca-Cola were nominated for being
champions of positive living in their
communities. The Torchbearers are
making a difference in areas they felt
passionately about: balanced living,
community or recycling.

FROM SARASOTA
COUNTY SCHOOL
DISTRICT


Fresh on the heels of a
successful experience
with President Bill Clin-
ton, Ringling College Li-
brary Association is part-
nering with the Sarasota
County School District
and two private high
schools in honoring aca-
demic achievement and
community service by
awarding lecture tickets
to the five Town Hall lec-
tures in the 2010 series.
The 2010 series cele-
brates the 30th year of
the Ringling College Li-
brary Association Town
Hall Lecture Series and
the 35th anniversary of
the Ringling College
Library Association.
The distinguished list
of speakers includes Fa-
reed Zakaria, Peggy
Noonan, Condoleezza
Rice, Pervez Musharraf
and Philippe de Monte-
bello.
"We are very excited to
extend this opportunity
to young scholars in our
community," said Town
Hall chair Olivia Thomas.
"We received such posi-
tive response from the
students who were se-
lected to meet and hear
President Clinton that
the RCLA decided to


make Town Hall available
throughout this year's
series. It is an important
part of our civic and cul-
tural discourse in Sara-
sota, and we want to
include as many young
people as possible."
The lectures will be
held at the Van Wezel
Performing Arts Hall.
Tickets are available by
calling 925-1343.
"We are pleased that
students in public and
private high schools
throughout the county
will be recognized for
their academic achieve-
ment, extracurricular ac-
tivities and community
service and will have the
chance to hear the amaz-
ing speakers featured in
this year's Town Hall
series," said Steve Can-
tees, executive director of
high schools for the
school district.
"This is a wonderful
opportunity for the
young men and women
who will be our future
leaders to hear from
tremendously accom-
plished people in the
fields of world politics,
journalism and the arts.
We know it will be very
inspirational."


Four local students
were chosen to attend
Fareed Zakaria's lecture,
two each from Pine View
and Venice High schools.
Jackie Allegra and
Melody Mishkin attend-
ed from PVS.
Jacob Burg and Amber
Todoroff attended from
VHS.

FRAN VALENCIC
SOCIAL COLUMNIST

Some writers tell us we
can never have enough of a
good thing. If you live in
Venice, you know they are
right. In this town there is a
concert going on every day,
someplace.
Judy Alexander and Brian
Gurl invited the crowd to
jump and jive at the Venice
Yacht Club. When they took
the audience for a walk down
Memory Lane, the trip
included Brian's imperson-
ations of Elvis, Liberace and
Jerry Lee Lewis.
It was fun watching Janice
Zarro, executive director of
the Women's Resource Cen-
ter, singing along, knowing
all the words to every song.
She later admitted the radio
was the central figure in her
home growing up and the
house was always filled with
music.
Brian and Judy perform
on Feb. 9 at North Port
Performing Arts Hall. Be
sure to join the fun.
Double the pleasure
Paul Todd astonishes
audiences whenever he per-
forms. Who else can play
three keyboards and sing at
the same time?
At his concert at Our Lady
of Lourdes Parish Hall, Paul


introduced his son, P.J. The
17-year-old wowed the audi-
ence with his singing and
charm. Together they enter-
tained and inspired.
Paul and PJ. perform in
Venice on Feb. 25 with a
matinee on Feb. 26 at Christ
United Methodist Church on
Center Road.

nice lady supports the arts
in Venice. She served as an
officer for the Venice Opera
Guild and chaired many of
its events. These days she
attends concerts, volunteers
and rolls up her sleeves to
serve where needed.
She is one of those terrific
people who live life to its
fullest with a smile no matter
what forks she encounters in
the road.

women who make Venice a

In the past two years, the newspaper business has faced unprecedented challenges, but make no mistake:
newspaper media print and digital remains strong and will emerge from the current environment an even stronger multi-platform force.


Number of adults who read a print

No amount of

could match the
depth and breadth
of newspaper-
produced content


This is not a portrait of a dying industry. It's illustrative of transformation. Newspapers are reinventing themselves to focus on serving distinct audiences
with a variety of products, and delivering those audiences effectively to advertisers across media channels.

were more accessible and newer.
But now Brunetti is determined to
restore the horse track to its glory
days and he has spent
$15 million to begin the
... .... process.
S"The plan calls
for spending $70
million the next
five years (to
make Hialeah
Great again)," said
Sq Pete Aiello, director
of marketing, simul-
casting and publicity for
the track.
On a chilly Tuesday afternoon, the
turnout was sparse but the crowd was
enthusiastic for the current quarter-
horse meet. While most Florida crowds
are used to thoroughbreds racing a mile
or more, the quarter-mile sprints run by
the quarter horses, many from Texas
and New Mexico, provide plenty of thrills
and the same opportunity to wager on a
winner.
Aiello says the plan is to bring thor-
oughbreds back and eventually offer a
premier race like the Flamingo. But first,
the track has to convince Florida's
racing establishment that it is worthy of
more dates and bigger purses.
The current quarter horse meet runs
through Feb. 2 with a post time of 2:05
p.m. Saturday, Sunday, Monday and
Tuesday.
"We won't know about new race dates
until later this year, but we have high
goals," Aiello said.
Luis Lopez, a native who now works
for the City of Hialeah, remembers the
good old days,
"This place used to be full of photog-
raphers taking pictures of celebrities," he
said. "It was a beautiful place to come.
They have done a real good job of fixing
the place up from what it was. I foresee
it being great again.
"For sure, the history is here."

Heideman a one-man tour de force


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Directed by Allan Kollar, Jeremy
Heideman gives a stunning one-
man portrayal of countless charac-
ters in the life of German transvestite
Charlotte von Mahlsdorf in Venice The-
atre's production of "I Am My Own Wife"
Written by Dough Wright from interviews
with von Mahlsdorf over several years, "I
Am My Own Wife" tells the story of a man
who managed to survive in Nazi Germany
and later in Communist-controlled East
Germany, despite his nearly life-long
predilection for wearing women's clothing.
He also managed to save an incredible
collection of items which preserved
aspects of Germany in those years.
In the course of the two-act play,


Heideman portrays so many people of
various backgrounds and with so many
dialects and accents that it is mesmeriz-
ing, Imagine someone from Atlanta
serving as a German translator with a
Southern American accent. That is one of
countless characters that come from the
mouth of Heideman as he seamlessly
switches from one character to another all
the while dressed as Charlotte. A few
gestures and change of voice and magic
happens.
"I Am My Own Wife" continues on the
Pinkerton stage until Jan. 24.
Venice Theatre is at 140 W. Tampa Ave.
on the island in downtown Venice. Tickets
are $24.

The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse
150th anniversary celebration
began in earnest last week
with the arrival of Capt. Edward
Yorke and the hardy men who built
the landmark Jupiter Light. Actually
the event featured reenactors but
the celebration was real and well
attended by such luminaries as Bob
Abbey, Director of the U.S. Depart-
ment of Interior's Bureau of Land
Management (BLM), and Bruce
Dawson, Field Manager, BLM
Eastern States plus countless
historians.
Two years ago, the site was
designated part of the 27 million
acres known as National Landscape
Conservation System, and the only
unit east of the Mississippi.
While the lighthouse has a virtual
twin at Ponce Inlet, this one is
special in its own right. In addition to
the lighthouse, the grounds contain
the 1892 Tindall Pioneer Homestead
exhibit with three new interpretive
signs. The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse


was restored and repainted in 1999-
2000.
Designed by Lt. George Meade of
the Bureau of Topographical Engi-
neers, it was built at a cost of
$35,000 on the highest point (46
feet above sea level) of its 61.5-acre
site, which was part of the Fort
Jupiter Reservation. Not only was it
difficult to haul materials across the
Indian River to the hilly site but its
construction was suspended until
1858 by the Third Seminole War.
Eventually the 108-foot brick tower
was completed and a new Fresnel
lamp from Paris was installed in the
lantern room. The lightkeeper's
house was built in 1859 near the
tower's base but declared unfit by
1881. Keepers had to climb the 105
steeps to the lantern room daily to
tend the light at least until the
next war-time interruption the
Civil War. The light was back in
service in late June 1866.
When visiting, consider there are
steps up the hill before you get to
climb the tower's 105 steps.

author shows the story both from the

their parents without giving away her
plot secrets. Hoag utilizes the 1985
time frame well, weaving in the history
of the FBI profiling and science in
crime detection while keeping the plot
buoyant.
Among Hoag's 16 novels, "Deeper

7th Annual Caloosahatchee

Celtic Festival


PROVIDED BY THE CITY OF FORT MYERS

The City of Fort Myers, in
conjunction with Celtic Her-
itage Productions, Inc., hosts
the Seventh Annual Caloosahatchee
Celtic Festival from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Jan. 23 on the grounds of downtown
Fort Myers's Centennial Park.
The festival boasts six hours of
continuous live Celtic music from an
international line-up, featuring the
high-energy Scottish group "Alban-
nach," Celtic jam band "Rathkeltair,"
native Irish balladeer Brendan Nolan,
national touring act "Marcille Wallis &
Friends," and the award-winning Fort
Myers-based dance troupe Kellyn
Celtic Arts Irish Dance Academy.
Gates open at 11am; main stage
music begins at noon.
Making a repeat appearance at
Caloosahatchee after last year's
thunderous response is Glasgow,
Scotland's "Albannach." Scottish
natives all, Albannach's stated
purpose in life is to share Scotland's
intriguing culture through music.
Their invigorating approach to the
traditional music of the Highlands
and Islands quickly brings audiences
to their feet and always leaves them
begging for more. Featuring a
championship winning piper, a variety
of percussionists, and haunting
vocalists, this band is the toast of
Highland Games and Scottish events
all over the United Kingdom and the
United States.
Rathkeltair (pronounce rath-KELT-
ur) is one of North America's premier
Celtic rock bands, featuring a
powerful trio of musicians from
Ireland, England and America. Their
cross-generational appeal lies in
their ability to take listeners on a
musical journey through time and
space, weaving traditional bagpipe
tunes together with tunes from Steely
Dan or The Beatles. They are story-
tellers as well, delivering compelling
original vocals that are exciting,
audience-friendly, and great fun.
Dublin-born balladeer Brendan
Nolan performs throughout the
United States and Canada. His
performances feature a rich baritone
voice, innovative musicianship on
guitar and bodhran (the traditional


Irish frame drum), and good humor.
"Marcille Wallis & Friends" has as its
nucleus touring and recording
artist Marcille Wallis, one of the
nations top hammer dulcimer
players. Wallis?s group also includes
award-winning Scottish dancers Ann
& Cal Lloyd, vocalist/multi-instrumen-
talist Don Pigeon, and fiery Celtic
fiddler Frances Pisacane.
Kellyn Celtic Arts Irish Dancers
boast four 2009 Gold Crown Champi-
ons. Principal Dancer, Instructor
and Choreographer Jaime Knaub,
now retired from competitive dancing,
is herself a much-decorated Irish
dance veteran, having won numerous
Irish dance medals and trophies, in
addition to representing the
United States at the World Champi-
onship of Performing Arts in 1999.
Piper Robin Hendrickson, who has
officiated at many State of Florida
ceremonies, will open the festival,
and provide strolling entertainment
throughout the festival grounds.
Festival-goers will find vendors of
Celtic goods ranging from children?s
clothing with an Irish theme to
wares from the Guinness brand shop
in Dublin to kilt outfitters who offer
sturdy and practical everyday
wear as well as authentic tartans.
The British Car Club of Southwest
Florida will display members' cars,
and offer the public a chance to vote
for Best Of Show. To satisfy the
appetite there is Celtic fare such as
fish and chips and meat pies, along
with traditional American festival
food. Domestic beers and imports will
both be served.
Admission to the event is $5.
Children under 12 are admitted free,
when in the company of a paid
adult.
New to the Caloosahatchee Celtic
Festival in 2010 is a Kick-Off Party,
which is free and open to the
public, at Bell Tower Shops on Friday
evening, January 22, starting at 7pm.
Performers include Albannach,
Marcille Wallis & Friends, and Robin
Hendrickson.

'Blue/Orange' has little to do with Gators


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
In "Blue/Orange, playwright Joe Penhall
examines the ramifications of egotism in
a setting where it matters on many
levels.
Caught in the middle is psychiatric
patient Christopher (Will Little). As the play
opens Chris is involved in a pre-release
discussion with Bruce (Dane Dandridge
Clark), a psychiatric resident. The major
concern seems to be whether the patient


is ready to be released and whether that is
a good or bad thing for the patient.
When senior psychiatrist Dr. Robert
Smith enters, things escalate. A battle of
egos ensues, threatening to leave the
patient in its wake even as it may harm at
least one of the doctors.
The action takes place in a psychiatric
hospital in London, giving the conservato-
ry actors the opportunity to perform in
London English rather than American
English. Their accents spot on, Little who


never misses so much as a
syllable and portrays his

"M*A*S*H, is said to
have been inspired by
Valpone, a 17th century
character with a similar
greedy predilection in Venice. Italy
That he is not the only greedy gold-lover in
San Francisco, makes it all the more
farcical.

Crouch, Ron Myroup as Lawyer Craven,

of the WEEK

She is not only smart and friendly,
Ambere Neely is quick behind the bar.
"You have to be fast, especially when the
place is packed," she says.

SUN CORRESPONDENT
Amber Neely always smiles. Her
coworkers at Chubby'z Grill
and Tavern in Port Charlotte
attest that she is smart, sweet, and
easy to talk to great traits for a
bartender. Many might be surprised
to find out that at one time, she was
painfully shy and is a Marine Corps
veteran.
"People sometimes don't believe I
was a Marine," she said. "And I was
military police," she laughed.
Neely comes from a military police
family but didn't want to take that
route. "They didn't have the school I
wanted, so I said I would go open
contract and found myself being an
MP anyway."
It is one of the things she is most
proud of that and her five-year-old
son who is the light of her life.
"Bartending lets me have lots of
time with him," she said. "He isn't in
school yet, so I want to be able to
spend this time with him. I am home
with him all day long and work only
four nights a week, so that is great."
And, she said, the money is good.
"Even in this economy, I have been
very fortunate to be able to make it
my clients are very generous to
me. They are good people."
She loves being a bartender,
especially at Chubby'z where she

The tattoo of "Devil Dog" on Amber
Neely's back is a U.S. Marine Corps
nickname for a Marine. "Most people
ask, 'Is that your boyfriend?' the Marine

'No, that's me.'"
has worked for almost 5 years. She
has been loyal to them because
they treat her so well and she has
made many friends, but soon, she
will move on.
"My fiance and I are moving to
Indiana so I can go to radiology
school there, plus I have family up
there," she said. The change in
career, she said, will make it easier
for her to spend time with her son
once he is in school.
"It's time," she said. "But I will miss
it here and everyone I've met."

ago, when the means to realize his vision
did not exist yet. Now, after four years of
production, AVATAR, a live action film
with a new generation of special effects,
delivers a fully immersive cinematic
experience of a new kind, where the
revolutionary technology invented to
make the film disappears into the
emotion of the characters and the sweep
of the story.

meets Lionel (Willem Dafoe) and Audrey
(Claudia Karvan), two fugitive humans
who claim to have a possible cure for

ing the cure before it's too late.

marriage is crumbling around them. But
their romantic woes are small compared
to the world of trouble they find them-
selves 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.

a decade of divorce-an amicable

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 unimaginable-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...complicated.


Leap Year (PG) C
When yet another anniversary passes
by without a marriage proposal from her
boyfriend, Anna
(Amy Adams)


decides to take action. Aware of an Irish
tradition that allows women to pop the
question on February 29th, Anna
plans to follow her lover to Dublin

other plans, however, and Anna
winds up on the other side of the
Emerald Isle with a handsome, but surly,
Irishman named Declan who may just
lead Anna down the road to true love.


Nine (PG-13) B

Kickin' back with



Joe Cracker


BY SHARE DERRICKSON
SUN CORRESPONDENT
W en you walk through the door at
\ Joe Cracker Sportsgrille and Tiki
V in Port Charlotte, the atmosphere
has a way of making you feel as if you are
on vacation. It is a mish-mash of beach bar,
tiki hut, and sports haven. Add in one
playful parrot named Joe Cracker-
"cracker" referring to the famed Florida
whip-cracking cowboys and it works.
The ambiance, combined with a finely-
honed menu of tried-and-true favorites, is
what has helped Joe Cracker be a favorite
watering hole and eatery for more than
three years, Greg Novack, one of the
restaurant's owners said.
To become the popular hangout it is
now, the building had to undertake a
serious overhaul considering it was
formerly an auto and tire center. "We
came in and totally remodeled and we
have been here three years this
December 16th," he said.
Novack, who has owned other
eateries in Venice, saw a hole in Port
Charlotte, and went for it. "I saw a need
for a family-style restaurant here in Port
Charlotte," he said, adding that giving
the restaurant its unique ambiance has
helped it succeed. "I knew if we offered


less-expensive food that is good quality
in a fun atmosphere, it would make it."
There is an outside sports bar but it
is open to the inside giving the restau-
rant its open Florida casual feel. The
floors, he said, were creatively made
from stamped concrete to look like old
plank boards. The ceilings are high,
adding to the airiness, the woods are
rich, and a flat-screen television is able
to be seen from most every seat.
Another part of Joe Cracker's suc-
cess is there is always something going
on. "There are a lot of activities,
especially on the weekends," he said.
"We have DJ dance party on Saturday
night, and every Friday, we have live
entertainment," he said. "And some-
times, we have sports events later into
the evenings."
There is also Nintendo, Wii Sports,
Halftime Trivia, and a host of daily and
weekly activities.
The restaurateur gives a lot of credit
to those who work for him. "We have
great employees and we have been
able to attract return customers who
come back because of them," he said.
In a down economy, this is vital for
restaurant survival, he said.
Novack said he and business partner,


Inside creates a casual and festive mood with
Mike Pachota, do their best to take
care of their employees. "We offer a lot
of benefits like health insurance, a
YMCA membership and free meals. We
like to take care of them and most of
them have worked here a long time," he
said.
And the one thing he said they are
best known for that keep people
coming back is the menu an array of
food at reasonable prices.
"It is a very casual menu that we
aimed at being able to keep the prices
low, and we wanted to attract some-
thing for all age groups and pallets
here. We have things like pizzas and
chicken wings for the younger crowd to
chicken pot pie and fresh fish for our older
clientele. We cover the gambit we have to
be able to cover everyone," he said.
Novack said their most popular items are

a "leave your cares behind" vacation feel.
the burger and fish. "We sell a lot of fresh
fish although we aren't known as a
seafood house, we have fish and shrimp
dishes,"
Not to be left out, the restaurant also has
several steak and pasta dishes as well.
'We have daily specials, including drink
specials," he said. "I think we do a good job
at paying attention to customers need, plus
we have great food it's fun food and it is
less expensive and you get your food
quick," he said.
'There is a lot of competition out there
but we have to be on our toes all of the
time," he said.
Joe Cracker Sportsgrille and Tiki is

Charlotte.

Bob Anderson in


concert Sunday


PROVIDED BY VISANI RESTAURANT

Bob Anderson,"The Best Singing
Impressionist in America," is
coming to Visani Restaurant at
7 p.m. Sunday.
It is one thing to be called "The Best"
by all the entertainment critics, but it is
the ultimate to be called "The Best" by
your peers. Such is the case for
Bob Anderson, the
personable entertainer
that People Maga-
zine named, "The
Best Singing
Impressionist in
America." Bob is
not just an
impressionist, he
is a singer, a
comic, a consum-
mate entertainer.
His appearances have
taken him to the top
venues around the world;
Monte Carlo, Paris, Rome, London,
Helsinki, Athens, Stockholm, Geneva,
Zurich, Barcelona, Sydney, Dubai, as
well as the elegant Plaza Hotel in New
York City, and every major resort in
Vegas, Reno,Tahoe, and Atlantic City.
Anderson has appeared on over 200
national television shows from Johnny
Carson to David Letterman and all the
rest. His foreign television appear-
ances have allowed him to perform at
the finest venues all over the
world.Merv Griffin wrote a 6 minute
piece for Bob and brought the newly
labeled impressionist back to Caesar's
Palace in Las Vegas for his next
taping. Merv introduced the young
man as "The Singing Impressionist."
On that show, Bob performed his
impressions of Andy Williams, Steve
Lawrence, Sammy Davis Jr., Tom
Jones and Johnny Mathis. The
audience gave the new young impres-
sionist a standing ovation and his

career was off and running. After
seeing that performance, Johnny
Carson requested an appearance on
his late night show. His first time on
The Tonight Show, Bob did a record 15
minute spot and received one of the
few standing ovations in the history of
the show. That first appearance was on
a Monday. Carson was so impressed
he invited Anderson
ba.k for another
appearance on
Thursday, just
three days
latter.
Anderson
is the only
entertain-
er to
appear as
a guest
twice in the
same week on
"The Tonight Show
with Johnny Carson". This
made Anderson a regular on the TV
talk show circuit.
With all this television exposure, the
Dune's Hotel in Las Vegas offered
Anderson a two week contract at The
Top of the Dunes. That engagement
turned into 156 weeks of sold out
performances. Anderson added a late
night show at 2 a.m., that became a
hangout for the Vegas stars. Nightly,
the biggest names in show business
would drop by to enjoy each others
company and most evenings join
Anderson on stage. Anderson per-
formed at the Dune's Hotel 40 weeks a
year for the next 12 years and it
became the "In" spot in Vegas.
After the Dunes, Anderson started
working with all the major stars in Las
Vegas like; Johnny Carson, Bill Cosby,
George Burns, Don Rickles, Joan
Rivers, Jerry Lewis, Dom DeLuise,
Sammy Davis Jr., Shirley Bassey,
Shirley MacLaine, Lola Falana and
many others. With all his acclaim, it is
no surprise, when in January of the
new Millennium, the Las Vegas Review
Journal (Nevada's largest daily news-
paper) asked its readers to name their
all-time favorite performers of the last
50 years. Anderson came in at
number 12, smack in between Barbra
Streisand and Ray Charles.
In 2002, Anderson was inducted into
the Casino Legends Hall of Fame in
Las Vegas.
Visani Restaurant is located at 2400
Kings Highway, Port Charlotte, Florida

Discovering


DeSoto County !


BY LOUISE HALL
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Since my husband has not been to Arcadia for at least 10
years, we decided to take the afternoon Dec. 30 and check
out the antique shops and restaurants. The route of Kings
Highway off Interstate 75, northeast to Arcadia proved to
be approximately 5 miles shorter than taking the direct line
using U.S. Highway 17 off U.S. 41 near Punta Gorda. It is
amazing what we discovered.
On Magnolia Street, where the DeSoto Restaurant is
located, there is an Arcadia-Desoto County Habitat for
Humanity Re-Sale Store, open 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday-
Friday and10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, with organs, mirrors,
antique furniture, desks, books, knick-knacks, dishes, and a
variety of sinks, among other items.
Next is DiFilippo-Kent Handcrafted Wood Furniture. open
by appointment on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday (Call
863-444-0723 or 941-321-0564). There are original wood
tables, benches, pedestals and art pieces made from odd
sections of trees displayed in the windows.
Arcadia Antiques & Fine Arts had a good walnut baby
grand piano made by Thabberg, a German maker, in 1919
England, priced at $2,500. The owner is a wholesaler in
London who, besides having many quality antiques in this
locally managed shop, also fills clients' special request
orders from around
the United States for antique items from England, France
and Germany. Call 863-444-2895 for more info.
There is also Magnolia Bridal & Boutique, selling shoes
and wedding, prom and christening gowns, and offering
tuxedo rentals and alterations; and an exercise/yoga shop at
the end of this row of stores across from the Depot.
On Historic West Oak Street, there were more than 50
shops full of antiques to amaze visitors, and about five
eateries along the way to satisfy your appetite. What an
adventure.
