Vandals spray-painted graf-
fiti on the new Legacy Trail
trestle bridge over Roberts Bay
last weekend. Construction
will not be delayed, but re-
moval of the graffiti will in-
volve additional time and ex-
pense.
"We left Friday afternoon


for the weekend, and when we
arrived back on Monday
morning we found graffiti
sprayed all over the bridge,"

Venice asks state, feds


for drywall assistance


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Venice City Council made
good on its promise Tuesday
to assist property owners suf-
fering from defective imported
drywall.
Council unanimously pass-
ed a resolution asking state
and federal leaders to break
through the red tape and take
up the property owners plea to
grant stimulus or earmark
FEMA funds to repair the
damage.
'A man's home is his castle,"
testified Venetian Golf & River
Club homeowner Roger Ef-
fron. "Regretfully, my castle
has drywall (problems). We
can't sell our home. We felt we
and found the perfect house
the community. Your resolu-
tion, by this gesture, shows the
attitude that government is
caring about the well-being of
some of its residents."
"My husband is getting
physically ill just from the
stress," said VG&RC resident
Judy Kovacs. She testified her
$430,000 home is now worth
$40,000.
She and neighbors Anthony
and Philomin Josephson said
they sometimes wear masks in
their own home to alleviate
headaches and the smell of
defective drywall.
The Josephsons said insur-
ance companies have estimat-
ed it will cost $100,000 to
$140,000 to remedy the situa-
tion, but can't move on repairs.
"We'd gladly pay, but we are
not even certain what they are
proposing to do will remedy
the problem," said Anthony
Josephson. "That is the most
frustrating thing. A lot of us
will go ahead and spend the
money, but we don't even have
that."
Insurance carriers have
dropped them or denied their


claims, they testified.
Others with mortgages re-
quiring insurance no longer
qualify, and have gone into
default, said Anthony Joseph-
son.
"It snowballs the effect."
"We just somehow have to
marshal our resources to do
something," said Mayor Ed
Martin. "We ought to be of
some help here to trigger some
response from state or federal
authorities."
Council Member John
Moore asked if the number of
impacted homes is known.
"Fifty for sure," said Phil-
omin Josephson, "but there is
a whole lot more."
"Willow Chase (subdivi-
sion) also has it," said City
Manager Isaac Turner.
"The scary thing is a lot of
places are just discovering they
have it. A number of places
(where it is suspected) have
not been inspected. This just
the beginning.
'A lot of people wanted to
keep it quiet. It is not only
affecting Florida, but practical-
ly all over the U.S. I think it's
something the federal govern-
ment is going to have to help
address."
Shade granted
In other news, city council
authorized a shade meeting
for Feb. 1 at 9 a.m. in council
chambers to discuss the Part
16 complaint filed by the
Federal Aviation Administra-
tion against the city. The com-
plaint alleges the city unfairly
withheld approval of four
planned aircraft hangars at the
Venice Jet Center.
City Attorney Bob Anderson
said he received on Tuesday
comments from the city's out-
side counsel on the issue and
had yet to review those com-

The city of Venice is sticking
to its bold plan to significantly
reduce densities in future joint
planning areas that have yet to
be annexed into the city.
Those areas, mostly in
North Venice, were identified a
few years ago by the city and
Sarasota County as most ap-
propriate to annex when the
time is ripe and outlined which
governmental entity would
provide utility services to the


Martin


Boone


areas.
When city council began
rewriting the Envision Venice
Comprehensive Plan two years
ago, those areas became a bat-

BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Realtors are looking for
more homes to sell, according
to property sales statistics re-
corded by the Venice Area
Board of Realtors, a positive
indicator to start the new year.
And traditionally, the next
three months are the busiest in
the industry.
For buyers, 2010 could be
the end of the bargains, with
fewer choice and prices begin-
ning to climb. Snowbirds have
about nine weeks before they
head north, so those wanting
to snap up a bargain for them-
selves, family or friends should
already be searching.
Price is still the major factor


in sales, compared to location
in the pre-recession era. This is
generally true in all price
ranges, but as there is even less
choice now in the $500,000-
and-up range, the major bar-
gains seen for the past three
years may very soon disap-
pear.
The current inventory of
1,518 homes for December is
less than half of what it was in
2006 (3,904) and 2007 (3,288).
It has fallen more than 25 per-
cent since December 2008,
when it stood at 2,168.
Another encouraging indi-
cator is total sales of homes for
December: 167, the highest
total in four years, compared
to 114 in 2008, 105 in 2007 and
136 in 2006. The average sales


tleground. Property owners
wanted to maximize develop-
ment potential. City leaders
wanted to limit growth.
Three months ago the coun-
ty objected to the reduced den-
sities outlined in the draft
Compp plan," mainly because a
Joint Planning Agreement
negotiated between the city
and county, heralded as the
pinnacle in partnership and
planning, conflicted with the
city's lower density numbers.

John Somero, a volunteer pilot from Spartanburg, S.C., flew this plane to Agape Flights in Venice
Jan. 26 loaded with needed medical supplies for Haiti. The plane was unloaded and items repacked
for its early morning flight Jan. 27 to Port-au-Prince. His wife, Judy, drove down in a truck and will
join him on the flight. They both are volunteering a month to bring help to the Haitians.


Agape channels help to Haiti


BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER

In the two weeks since a
devastating 7.0 earthquake
struck Haiti, Agape Flights in
Venice has been serving as a
hub for Good Samaritans
across the nation.
On Tuesday, Jan. 26, a
plane that originated in
Burlington, Vt., stopped in
Spartanburg, S.C., to pick up
another pilot and landed at
Agape Flights. It was carry-
ing needed goods for the
relief effort in Haiti and will
be repacked to carry about
2,500 pounds of medical
supplies.


Dick Armstrong, interim
executive director of Agape
Flights, said the operation
has made about 58 flights to
Haiti since the earthquake
and shipped nearly 120,000
pounds of supplies.
While many people have
known about Agape for
years, others have gone on-
line to find a way to get their
donations to Haiti and
found Agape.
"Someone even drove a
truck here from Louisville,
Ky.," he said.
On Monday evening, a
King Air 200 much larger
than Agape's King Air 90 -
stopped in to pick up sup-


plies and to fly under Agape's
flag.
"We know customs peo-
ple and procedures, and
sometimes we may send one
of our pilots along," Arm-
strong said.
Agape usually has three
staff pilots and 15 volunteer
pilots.
"With these conditions,
we have been adding some
pilots," he said.
Regular staff numbers 10
and his volunteer staff has
increased manifold, going
from about 100 to some-
where between 450 and 500.

also moved upward, minimally
increasing to $196,050, com-
pared to $193,532 in 2008,
$249,578 in 2007 and $290,534
in 2006.
The top-sellingprice range in
Venice in 2009 was $200,000-
$249,999, with 163 single-family
homes sold, followed by 129
homes priced between $120,000
and $139,999 and 123 homes
between $100,000 and $119,999.
In 2009, 1,306 homes were
sold, with the peak month for
closings being June (129), fol-
lowed by May (124) and April
(123). Assuming six to eight
weeks between contract sign-
ing and closing, that means the
top "contract pending" months
are April, March and February.

Baseball up to bat before Sarasota County Commission


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

Baseball, played regu-
larly in the sunshine, will
get play in the Sunshine
this week at a Sarasota
County commissioners
workshop.
Just what is expected
to be discussed Thursday
in the County Adminis-
tration Center is unknown.
The agenda available on
the county's Web site
does not include any
supporting materials.
However, it is possible
that Deputy County Attor-
ney Frederick Elbrecht
will update the commis-
sion on a lawsuit that
threatens the 30-year,
$31.2 million agreement
between the county, the
city of Sarasota and the
Baltimore Orioles for the
use of Ed Smith Stadium
and Sports Complex, and
the Minor League facility
at Twin Lakes Park.
The suit, filed by Citi-
zens for Sunshine Inc.
and Sarasota Citizens for
Responsible Government,
contends the state Sun-
shine and Open Records
laws were violated during
the baseball negotiations
that concluded with the
agreement in July 2009.
The citizens groups, rep-
resented by attorney


Andrea Flynn Mogen-
sen of Sarasota, filed
their action Dec. 29
against the county and
commissioners Joe Bar-
betta, Shannon Staub
and Nora Patterson.
Barbetta, the current
commission chair, was
the board's liaison to
Major League Baseball
when the deal was
signed in July. Staub had
been part of earlier nego-
tiations with other teams
and had had communi-
cations with the Angelos
family, owners of the
Orioles. Patterson is the
chair of the Tourist
Development Council,
whose "room tax" is
being used to under-
write the agreement.
Terms
Most recently, the
negotiations between
Mogensen and Elbrecht
produced a letter Jan. 19
from Mogensen in which
she listed five conditions
the nonprofit organiza-
tions would need met to
resolve the lawsuit:
A referendum on the
next countywide ballot.
That could be as early as
March 16 when the
county school board
holds a special election
regarding the continu-
ance of a 1-mill tax.


Foundation makes

grants for Haiti
FROM GULF COAST
COMMUNITY FOUNDATION OF VENICE

Gulf Coast Community Foundation of Venice has
directed the first two rounds of donations made to its
Haiti Earthquake Relief Fund to Venice-based Agape
Flights and the American National Red Cross.
The foundation continues to accept donations to
the fund and plans to quickly distribute additional
contributions to these two organizations.
Agape Flights, which is headquartered at the Venice
Municipal Airport, provides relief services to hundreds
of missionary families in Haiti, the Dominican Republic
and the Bahamas, including 130 families in Port-au-
Prince, Haiti. According to its Web site, Agape has made
more than 50 relief flights since the devastating Jan. 12
earthquake in Haiti, transporting emergency medical
supplies, food, medical personnel, and more.
The American Red Cross is delivering humanitari-
an assistance and personnel to the earthquake-strick-
en country as part of the international relief and
recovery effort. Red Cross responders have set up field
hospitals, delivered medical supplies and clean water,
and provided many other relief items.
The Haiti Earthquake Relief Fund was established
to give foundation fundholders and supporters an
easy way to contribute online to earthquake relief
efforts. Donations still can be made through the fund
at gulfcoastcf.org. The foundation is also encouraging
direct donations to relief agencies and facilitating
direct grant recommendations made by donors
through their donor advised funds.
Gulf Coast Community Foundation of Venice, the
largest community foundation in Florida, was found-
ed in late 1995 and has awarded more than $93 million
in grants in the areas of arts and culture, health and
human services, education, civic affairs and the envi-
ronment. For more information visit gulfcoastcf.org.

If a resolution cannot

POLICE BEAT


Spitting mad
On Jan. 23, at 5:45 p.m. Christopher George
Furlan, 45, of the 200 block North Harbor Drive,
Venice, was arrested and charged with unarmed
burglary of an unoccupied dwelling
and larceny grand theft ($300-$5,000).
His bond was set at $3,500.
According to aVenice Police Depart-
ment report, witnesses saw Furlan
enter an apartment and take a white
TV, a CD case and a DVD player and
then take the items to his apartment.
Officers found Furlan in the court- Furlan
yard of the apartment complex. He
told the officers he was angry when the male occu-
pant of the apartment borrowed $40 from him to
buy crack cocaine and never returned.
The female occupant of the apartment was noti-
fied by cell phone, returned to the apartment and
identified the items as ones that belonged in her
apartment.
The items were valued at $390 and were
returned to their owner.
On Sunday at 6:30 p.m., Furlan was transferred
from the South County Jail to the North County jail.
Once inside, his cuffs were removed and he was
instructed to place his hands on the wall.
According to the report, he complied, but soon
began pushing himself back and was instructed to
stop. He swore at the deputies, pushed off the wall
and turned toward a deputy in an aggressive man-
ner. The deputy redirected Furlan and then took
him to the floor to get control of him. Furlan was
recuffed.
He had a cut in the right eyebrow area that
occurred when the deputy attempted to gain con-
trol of Furlan. While lying on the floor waiting to be
taken to the hospital for stitches, he swore and spit
on a deputy. While he was at the hospital, deputies
said he attempted to spit on three of the nurses in
the emergency room but because of a spit guard
was unsuccessful. It was unknown if he had any
communicable disease.
For these actions, Furlan was charged with bat-
tery on officer, firefighter or EMT. He received no
bond.
On Monday at 1:09 a.m., Furlan was in front of
the jail's nurses office waiting to get his vitals
checked so he could be taken from booking to a
cell. According to the report, Furlan began faking a
seizure, so he was placed on the floor. He soon
began trying to spit on a deputy. Another deputy
walked behind him and moved Furlan's head away
from the deputy. The other deputy went to the
other side of Furlan to restrain him until they could
locate a spit mask.
While the deputy was holding Furlan, he over-
powered the deputy and the deputy had to strike
him with his fist several times in an attempt to get
Furlan to release his hold on the deputy's leg.
Once the deputy's leg was released, Furlan
grabbed the deputy's arm between his legs and
rolled. Again the deputy had to punch him with his
fists to get Furlan to release his arm. Finally free of
Furlan, that deputy stepped back and other deputies
placed Furlan in a restraint chair.
The deputy's left arm and right knee were
bruised and swollen.
For these attacks, Furlan was charged with bat-
tery on a law enforcement officer, firefighter or
EMT and resisting an officer with violence. He
received no bond on the battery charge and $1,000
on the resisting charge.
Domestic battery
Apparently, Clara Jean Hendrickson has worn
out her welcome.
According to a Venice Police Department report,
she has been living with her brother
and their mother rent-free. When her
brother confronted Hendrickson, 53,
500 block School St., Venice, about not
working or providing any monetary
contribution to the household, she
became angry and pushed him, caus-
ing him to fall backward and strike
their mother. Hendrickson
Hendrickson fled the scene before
officers arrived, but they found her at the intersec-
tion of Groveland Avenue and Country Club Lane.
When she was arrested and charged with domestic
violence, it also was discovered that she had two
morphine pills in her purse. That resulted in a
charge of possession of a controlled substance
without a prescription. She received no bond on
the domestic battery charge and $1,000 on the drug
charge.
During the altercation, their mother received a
small bruise to her right shoulder. The brother
received no injuries at the time and all parties
refused medical treatment.
Cheating
April M. Emerson, 19, reported to Pre-Trial
Services at the Robert L. Anderson Administration
Center where she was to take a drug test. Sarasota
County Sheriff's deputies were notified by Nancy
Williams, a Pre-Trial Services employee, that
Emerson had attempted to falsify the test by
removing a container from one of her body cavi-
ties, according to the report.
When Emerson was confronted, she tried to dis-
pose of the evidence by throwing it into the toilet,
but it was recovered.
Emerson admitted using drugs. She said it was
because her father had been in the hospital. The


ROBERT K. KENNETTi


report stated that she was crying and on the verge
of hysteria because she had been caught and she
has two pending cases this month.
Emerson, 400 block of Beverly Road, Venice, was
arrested and charged with tampering with or fabri-
cating physical evidence. Her bond was set at
$1,000.

RENDERING COURTESY OF BEEBE DESIGN STUDIO OF VENICE
A big white-and-orange twist ice cream cone at Bob's Twist 'N' Shake hearkens back to the iconic family ice cream parlors popular throughout the country in the '60s.


Bob's Twist 'N' Shake will take customers back to the '60s


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

An iconic symbol of family
fun in the 1960s will be reborn
In Venice in mid-April when
local businessman Bob John-
son opens his new ice cream
parlor. Bob's Twist 'N' Shake,
420 North U.S. 41 Bypass be-
tween Taco Bell and Arby's, will
be a throwback to the rock 'n'
roll era. His plan is to bring
back memories of romantic
outdoor movie theaters and
the music of the Beatles, the
Monkees and the Rolling
Stones.
A giant 13-foot-tall, three-di-
mensional, white-and-orange
twist ice cream cone will be sus-
pended from the tropical fa-


cade. Adding to the period feel,
employees will wear Bob's Twist
'N' Shake caps and T-shirts.
Customers will park, walk
up, select a twist or shake and
then relax under fans on the
outdoor patio under a retro-
design covered canopy. The
drive-through window service
will satisfy those in a hurry or
simply wanting take-out.
Linda Johnson is managing
the ice cream parlor. She and
Bob are creating their own
menu of 16 soft-serve ice
cream flavors and two soft-
serve frozen yogurt flavors.
The menu includes twists, ice
cream flavor bursts, shakes,
malts, dipped cones and ba-
nanas, ice cream floats, slushy
freezes and low-fat yogurt.


Bob's Twist 'N' Shake will
offer fruit toppings, sodas,
water, ice cream cakes, sun-
daes and cones together with
take-out pints and quarts.
Diners can purchase special
souvenir caps and T-shirts. The
parlor will be open from 11:30
a.m. to 9 p.m. every day.
Johnson said it is a joint
venture using Venice-based
contractors, with Mark Beebe
of Beebe Design Studio de-
signing the store. Jeff Char-
lotte's J.E. Charlotte Con-
struction team is building it
within 90 days.
Hazeltine Nurseries of
Venice will plant tall palms and
lush landscaping enabling din-
ers to sit in shaded areas. Ac-
cess will be from U.S. 41 By-


pass and from Johnson Lane.
An entrepreneur, Johnson
taught school in Clarks Grove,
Minn., before moving to Ven-
ice in 1963, where he opened
Prestige Mobile Home Deal-
ership at The Rialto. Starting
an insurance business initially
for mobile home owners, he
then expanded into general
insurance and then into fi-
nancing medical equipment
for companies throughout the
country. Following that he suc-
cessfully marketed credit cards,
issuing 15,000 cards monthly
for a northern-based bank.
A bank on the ice cream
parlor spot closed eight years
ago and was torn down three
years ago. Admitting to being
an ice cream freak, Johnson


decided an ice cream parlor
would be appropriate on the
spot, which he owns.
Beth Johnson, his wife, has
created their slogan: "Twist &
Shout at Bob's Ice Cream Parlor
like you did last week!", bring-
ing back memories of the
1960's hit song made popular
by the Beatles.
Keeping it local, he is look-
ing to hire 15 high school stu-
dents and some retirees to
operate Bob's Twist 'N' Shake
at the opening in April. E-mail
bobstwistnshake@comcast.
net.
"I see it as the first of a chain
of Bob's Twist 'N' Shake ice
cream parlors opening through-
out the state," he said.

Cafe Venice expanding to accommodate more diners


ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


Kay Kropac is expanding
Cafe Venice, 116 W Venice
Ave., to serve 150 diners,
acquiring the space next door
when Meows and Growls clos-
es. Her goal is to cater to more
private parties and functions.
"I want to be able to meet
more of the public needs with
a private dining room," said
Kropac.
The expansion will provide
room for luncheons, business
events and additional bus tour
parties. After the opening she
plans to get a full liquor li-
cense. No changes are planned
for the menu.
She has the permits, a con-
tractor is ready to start and in
the best-case scenario she
hopes it will open in March.
"We have to put a fire door
in between the bar and the last
booth," said Kropac.


A restaurateur all her life,
she grew up and worked in her
family's Painesville, Ohio,
restaurant and has worked for
Cafe Venice a total of seven
years, acquiring the business
in 2006. Call 484-1855.

Richard Serino and his son
Richard Jr. have lined up a for-
midable team to reopen Rich-
ard's Carpet Warehouse, 105
Corporation Way in the Oak-
wood Business Park, two
blocks north of Perkin's.
Joining them are Alan Cart-
er, former manager of AAA's
Venice and Sarasota offices,
Dave Butler, a Venice High
School football coach, and
Robin Dyck, a 20-year
employee of the former Scot-
tie's in Venice.
The store showcases Mo-
hawk, Armstrong and other
major carpet brands, and solid
wood, laminate and ceramic
tile flooring. Serino has a qual-
ified professional team in-
stalling and managing all
products and accessories.
Serino has 38 years of expe-
rience beginning on Long
Island, N.Y., as an installer of
flooring products for 17 years.
Moving to Venice in 1972, he
opened Richard's Carpets in
the Warfield Industrial Park,
then expanded by opening the


warehouse at Corporation Way
in 1984.
In 2000 he sold the business
intending to retire, but the new
owners closed it last July, Now
Serino has relaunched the
business. Store hours are 8:30
a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays and
Saturday mornings. Call 488-
3900.

Definas are back

February re-opening is
Defina's Italian Restaurant,
1965 South Tamiami Trail.
Ron and Linda Defina and
her parents started the restau-
rant in 1984. Nine years later it
was sold but it continued
under the same name until
2005, when it changed owner-
ship twice before closing as
Dara Thai two months ago.
"We are coming back," said
Defina.
Recalling the specials in
1984, when two could dine for
$4.99, including soup or salad,
desert and coffee, he said,
"Things have changed and
prices will have to be a little
higher than that."
Assisted by their son, Rocco,
and his wife, Jessica, who has
been running the Mission
Valley Country Club, the fami-
ly will serve their popular
Italian and Sicilian cuisine
with beer and wine. The reno-


vated restaurant with high-top
comer booths, low-top tables
and seating for 70 is to have a
homey appeal. Call 232-5142.

and partners Sonny Sawhney
and son Keith Sawhney are

101 North U.S. 41 Bypass in the

Council Member Sue
Lang said she supports
filing a motion to dismiss
the complaint because
the Venice Jet Center no
longer has standing be-
cause it is being replaced
by Tristate Aviation
Group of Florida LLC,
who intend to operate
the Venice Jet Center
under the name "Sun-
coast Air Center."
Anderson said anoth-
er option would be to
wait and file the motion
after Tristate seeks to
substitute itself for the
Venice Jet Center in the
complaint.

Long days
Armstrong and his
staff have been putting in
some very long days.
He said he is holding
up pretty well but is con-
cerned about the staff.
"They've been work-
ing with these people in
Haiti missionary fami-
lies shoulder to shoul-
der. For them, it's person-
al. They are friends. And
sometimes it's hard to get
them to go home," he
said.
Out of 130 missionary
families, he still has not
heard from 10.
"We know of one fatal-
ity, and two amputa-
tions," he said. 'A married
couple were crushed
when their house col-
lapsed on them. The wife
lost a foot and the hus-
band lost an arm. Both
were buried for hours
before they were res-
cued."
The couple was flown
back to the United States
and underwent medical
treatment.
Damaged planes
On Saturday, the land-
ing gear failed when
Agape's King Air 90 was
landing. The pilots are
OK and the supplies were
still good, but the plane is
in pretty bad shape.
"We don't know if we'll
be able to repair it or
not," Armstrong said.
The plane was landing
in Jacmel, about 30 miles
away from Port-au-
Prince, where people
were walking to get sup-
plies. The terrain is pretty
much up and down and
Armstrong doesn't know
of a way to get the plane
to a location where it
could be repaired.
"An insurance assessor
will take a look at it
Thursday and advise us,"
he said.
He said he finally had
a report back on the
plane that went down in
the ocean in December
2007. The report showed
that the fuel pump failed
on that plane.
"It was a rented en-
gine," he said.
That plane was a Cara-
van and was replaced


with the King Air 90.

2009.
The state unemploy-
ment rate was an-
nounced Friday by the
Agency for Workforce In-
novation, which also said
nationally, the employ-
ment rate finished at 10
percent.
December 2009's un-
employment rate is 4.2

highest rate since May
1975, when the rate was
11.9 percent. For a period

son said. The FAA could
drop the case on its own
in the next two weeks.
Airport lease
terminated
Another airport mile-
stone occurred Tuesday
when the city officially
agreed to assume owner-
ship of a slightly rusty 12-
unit airport hangar.
The city refused to
extend a 25-year airport
property lease first en-
tered into in February
1984 with NEC Inc.,
which subleased hangar
space.
Acting on a directive
from city council,
Anderson told the lease
holder it was not in the
city's interest to extend
the contract, terminated
the lease and is returning
ownership of the proper-
ty to the city. The lease
expires Feb. 7.
The city plans to rent
hangar spaces at the rate
of $200 per month for a
shade hangar and $275


rienced single-digit un-
employment rates, the
lowest being 3.1 percent
from March to May 2006.
Charlotte County's
unemployment rate was
virtually flat, with the
county improving 0.1
percentage point from
November to 13.0 per-
cent. However, Charlotte
was at 9.7 percent in
December 2008.
Sarasota County also
had an almost-flat show-
ing, falling 0.1 percent-
age point to 12.4 in De-
cember. It, too, was in


per month for a T-
hangar. Individual sub-
leases all expire at the
time the main lease ex-
pires. A meeting is plan-
ned to see what the cur-
rent tenants desires are,
said Nancy Woodley, as-
sistant city manager.
Council Member John
Moore said a lease that
garnered $8,000 per year
for the city, may now
generate $40,000 per
year.
The current lease-
holder "understands this
is a financial decision rel-
ative to the Airport En-
terprise Fund, and he
was unable to come up
with a plan to benefit (us)
both," said Airport Di-
rector Fred Watts.
"It was going to be my
recommendation to
council to exercise this
option. We would be
hard pressed to explain
to the FAA why we did-
n't."

had been spray-painted
in large orange letters on
the concrete base of the
bridge together with
other words and charac-
ters. The paint had also
been sprayed on the
black bridge railing.
Sarasota County engi-
neers were notified, and
they advised the contrac-
tor to remove it prior to
job completion, when
the whole bridge will be
pressure-washed. Law
enforcement is monitor-
ing the site to prevent
further damage.
"Although we had a
break-in at the contrac-
tor's hut on site a few
weeks ago, this is the first
act of vandalism on this
project," said Alex Bou-
dreau, Sarasota County
engineer. "I believe it is
just the work of kids, but
it is a nuisance."
People are discour-
aged from approaching
the bridge, which is
secured at both ends
with orange fencing and


wood planks. Additional
barriers are erected
across the trail about 300
yards from the bridge.
Indications are the van-
dals came from the
Venice direction as more
graffiti is evident on the
south side of the bridge.
"It is extremely dan-
gerous to be out here,"
said Goody. "If somebody
walking on the bridge fell
into the water, which at
the deepest is 7 feet, or
fell onto the oyster beds,
they would get cut up
pretty bad and nobody
would know."
Construction of Rob-
erts Bay Bridge began on
Aug. 26 and is on sched-
ule to be completed by
the end of February. This
week equipment has
been moved to the Dona
Bay Bridge, where work
starts next week with
scheduled completion by
the end of July.

DeSoto County fin-
ished at 10.6 percent in
December, an uptick of
0.6 percentage points
from November. In 2008,
it ended December at 7.3
percent.
Gary L. Jackson, direc-
tor of the Regional Eco-
nomic Research Institute
at the Lutgert College of
Business at Florida Gulf
Coast University, urged
caution when trying to
determine the meaning
of the updated unem-
ployment rates.
"Be very careful," he
said, and recommended
that those currently in
the work force should be
measured along with
those actively looking for
jobs.
Jackson said the un-
employment situation is
getting better: "We're not
losing as many jobs."
However, he noted, there
has been a net loss of
jobs since last year.
"I see it's going to be a
slow, gradual recovery,"


he said. Part of the reason
for that, he said, is busi-
nesses are reluctant to
hire and are waiting to
see if the improving
economy is sustainable.


"The message, is
don't expect by
June of this year
to be back to nor-
mal."
Gary L.
Jackson, director
of the Regional
Economic
Research
Institute at the
Lutgert College
of Business at
Florida Gulf
Coast University



Jackson said the re-
cent recession "is the


worst recession we've
had since the Great De-
pression." He said the
state is influenced
strongly by population
growth, which has not
occurred in recent years.
In a year's time, the
work force in both Sara-
sota and DeSoto coun-
ties has dropped by 2.5
percent, with Sarasota
County losing 4,502
workers from its civilian
labor force and DeSoto
399. Charlotte County
lost 1.4 percent, or 984
workers.
Employment statistics
are starting to stabilize,
Jackson said, calling it a
positive sign. He said cit-
izens shouldn't expect
2010 to be a great year.
"The message," Jack-
son said, "is don't expect
by June of this year to be
back to normal."
Recovery will come,
he said, when people feel
more secure financially
and when their stock and
property values improve.

DCA from Page1 A


Since then county commissioners
apparently have had a change of heart.
For example, a change in density in the
Laurel Road mixed-use area from "up
to 18 units per acre" down to eight was
previously considered a decrease in
density. City leaders now hope the
county will see it as in keeping with the
JPA agreement because it falls within a
range of "up to" 18 units.
High powered land use attorney
Linda Shelley, a former Department of
Community Affairs official, told council
members at a Tuesday morning comp
plan workshop she believes the county
is agreeable to the new understanding.
But county staff indicated they will
no longer provide sewer service in at
least one area between the Venetian
Golf & River Club and the Myakka River
because the density is too low and it's
not financially feasible.
Fiction?
Venice City Council hopes the
Florida Department of Community
Affairs will have an epiphany and see it
their way too. That remains to be seen.
Some aren't buying notion that the
comp plan density numbers are in
keeping with the JPA Agreement.
"Today's action by council moved
the comp plan amendment further in
the direction where the JPA agreement
says one thing and the county plan"
says another, said Jeff Boone, a local
land use attorney. "It enforces the fic-
tion that the comp plan numbers" and
the JPA numbers "are the same."
Other hurdles
The JPA agreement is one of three
major hurdles in the current draft
comp plan. Another is affordable hous-
ing. State planners say the city needs to
identify areas for affordable housing,
and specifically where developers can
attain housing density bonuses refer-
enced in the document. The city opted,
instead, to study the issue and make a
decision by 2012.
Urban sprawl is another top concern
for DCA officials who said the low den-


sities listed in JPA areas aren't urban in
nature.
"They may choose to address it, but
the current plan doesn't address" DCA's
objection that the comp plan promotes
urban sprawl, Boone said.
Again, council is hoping the densi-
ties already submitted will suffice. It
may be the city strategy, said one
observer, is to resubmit the plan using
the same densities and gambling
DCA will opt not to fight the city on the
issue.
Resolved
Other controversial issues were
either resolved or eliminated.
Language that could have further
restrained property owners from con-
structing additions like lanais or pools
in high hazard coastal areas was with-
drawn.
Language making the airport festival
grounds permanent was eliminated
after the Federal Aviation Authority
objected.
North Venice resident Bob Burrus,
who resides outside the city in a JPA
area, met with city officials and consul-
tants the day before the workshop. Like
other council members who have regu-
larly authored last-minute changes,
Burrus offered language clarifying
when a proposed development triggers
the need for a comp plan amendment.
It was adopted.
He also succeeded in getting a
matrix comparing densities removed
from the document. The matrix com-
pared what is currently in the JPA
agreement with the proposed comp
plan densities for each planning area.
Shelley said it was in there to make it
easier for the public to understand
both agreements. Burrus said it was
confusing. Council sided with Burrus
and eliminated it from the plan.
Mayor Ed Martin said he was
pleased with Tuesday's outcome, say-
ing it proved DCAs objections to the
draft comp plan were minor.
More workshops are planned.

OPINION


GONDOLIER SUN EDITOR

OUR VIEW


It's them or us in war on invasive species


4 4WA anted: large lizards.
T T "Gray-tan, with an in-
fusion of orange in adults,
black banding on tail. May be as long
as 4 feet and weigh up to 5 pounds.
"Feed on natural vegetation, land-
scape plants and berries, but may dis-
rupt tortoise, turtle and shorebird
nests. Will defend themselves if cor-
nered, so approach cautiously.
"Be on the lookout and call animal
control or county government (861-
5000) if you see one."
Some variation of that message
may go out soon as Sarasota County
implements a new $50,000 exotic-
reptile management plan intended to
nip the growing problem of roaming
lizards and snakes before the problem
gets out of hand.
It's tempting to think we should let
these creatures be, but we shouldn't


take the problem of invasive species
lightly. It's always best to get a handle
on the problem as early as possible.
And it is a problem. These species
reproduce quickly. Adult females lay
from 30-45 eggs per spring. Once
established, they multiply until they
are everywhere.
They pose a threat to habitat and
the nests of turtles, tortoises and
shorebirds. They can damage home-
owners' landscaping and spread dis-
ease. In short, the fewer of them, the
better.
If you need proof, look south. For
years, the ballooning iguana popula-
tion has been a problem on Gasparilla
Island. Charlotte and Lee counties
have allocated large sums to remove
iguanas from the island. A small pilot
project conducted last summer at
Lemon Bay Park in Englewood and


Blind Pass Park on Manasota Key
turned up 158 black spiny-tailed igua-
nas (described above), most of them
from the beach area on the key.
Sarasota has set its sights on black
spiny-tailed iguanas and three other
reptile species: common green igua-
nas, Nile monitor lizards and Bur-
mese pythons. Though there num-
bers are still relatively low, they are
present.
According to the county map, igua-
nas have been found up and down
the coast for the past three years. Dur-
ing the same time, monitor lizards
(up to 7 feet and 20 pounds) have
been reported at two spots in Engle-
wood along State Road 776, as well as
a handful of locations in North
County. Pythons have been sighted in
the Myakka watershed along River
Road and U.S. 41 in North Port, and


farther inland closer to Interstate 75.
At this point, the county's manage-
ment plan calls for little in the way of
new staff time. Current staff will be
trained to report sightings and coor-
dinate removal. Most of the money
will go for professional trappers. Tar-
get areas are Blind Pass Park, the Her-
mitage on Manasota Key, Lemon Bay
Park and Shamrock Park in Venice for
iguanas, and Deer Prairie Creek
Preserve and the Myakka River-River
Road corridor for pythons.
In addition, the county may devel-
op a "rapid response team" for
pythons. It also will start a public edu-
cation program so that people will be
able to identify and report the offend-
ing species.
Don't hesitate to make the call if
you see one. The yard you save may
be your own.

When I came to Venice I had
so many choices on who I
should see and meet first. Let's
face it there are so many
divergent groups that make a
city run, whether they be polit-
ical, civic, volunteer or mer-
cantile. They are all important
and all have their place in
making a community run.
The truth is, from this last
group come many of the vol-
unteers, service club attendees
and, yes, even the politicians.
The business community is
truly the heartbeat of a com-
munity, and we all must
remember that.
Because of my Rotary con-
nections, I know a lot of people
in the two Venice clubs. I also
know many members in the
Kiwanis and Sertoma clubs. So
maybe the service club contin-
gent is a good place to start.
I know some of the com-
missioners in the county, but I
really do not know any of the
local politicians, like the
mayor, council members,
board members or anyone
else. Maybe I should start there
and say "hello."
Actually, I made up my
mind to start with the mer-
chants of Venice, as they not
only make the community tick
with the vitality they offer, but
they make our newspaper tick
through advertising.
After settling in a little, I
asked each of the sales people
to take me around to some of
their accounts so I could meet
them. It was great. All that I
talked to said business is going
very well, and I saw customers
in every store I entered. Not


only were they looking and
browsing but they were buying
and, from where I stood, were
happy to be pouring dollars
into our economy.
Some businesspeople I
even knew from the past, like
the Dukes at Classic Creations
and Fred Francis at B.W
Francis. Patti Schmidt at Merle
Norman graduated from
Venice High with my sister,
Sally. It was like old home
week.
I met many others also and
the feeling of "times are good"
could be felt and, as I said,
could be seen by the traffic not
only in the stores but on the
roads. Some might be grous-
ing about the extra wait at a
traffic light but boy, oh, boy,
did the merchants need the
influx of snowbirds and
tourists.
One afternoon I branched
out on my own and strolled
Venice Avenue to meet some
folks. I chatted with Sandy
McGowan from Sandy's
Designer Clothing, Roseanne
and Baker Brown from Venice
Stationers and Kerri Marshall
from Kerri's Jewels and Gems.
I stopped by the Venice
MainStreet to meet director KC
Quaretti-Lee. She was in, and
we had a very nice conversa-
tion about MainStreet and its
function.
No visit downtown would
be complete without meeting
Greg Silvia at Athea's
Restaurant, so I ambled over to
Miami Avenue also to see what
was going on. Here too win-
dow shoppers and walkers
were ogling and strolling a
clear sign all is good.
All in all, my first day of
meeting people was pretty
darn good. The enthusiasm
and warmth told me that it is
going to be a good year.
People say "it's the econo-
my, stupid." Well, I could not
agree more, and I think we can
all honestly say that the light at
the end of the tunnel is no
longer an oncoming train.

Spouting off with no back talk


First feature. I once wrote a letter to the editor that ticked off
a reader who came at me with nasty remarks. Now I call Let'em
Have It, and no back talk. It's the very first feature I read every
Wednesday and Saturday so there.


Thankless job. Of course
Mayor Martin and Council
Members Lang and Zavodnyik
should run again. They saved
our city. If people would look
back and see the direction our
city was headed and not be-
lieve the slanted articles and
opinions that the Gondo writ-
ers have portrayed, they would
realize the fine and thankless
job these people have done. I
hope they will continue to do it
year after year.
Inheritance. Of course Ed
Martin, Ernie Zavodnyik and
Sue Lang should run again.
Despite the constant criticism
of this newspaper, they've con-
tinued to work to keep Venice
the wonderful town it is. Let's
not forget, many of the prob-
lems they have faced began
during the terms of previous
councils for example, short-
term rentals and Sharky's.
Ill-formed plan. Should Ed
Martin, Ernie Zavodnyik and
Sue Lang run for re-election.
No. Definitely no. They've cost
this town much too much
money following a very ill-
formed plan.
Terrible. Should Ed Martin,
Ernie Zavodnyik and Sue Lang
run for re-election? Definitely
not, but if they do, I hope they
get beat. I wish they wouldn't
even try to run because I don't
want to take a chance on their
being back in there again.
They're terrible.
Flim-flam. Your question of
the week is throwing meat to
the lion. The real question is,
should they be re-elected? If
they choose to run again as
someone who has supported
them, both with money and
activity, after being duped,
absolutely duped by their atti-
tudes and their hidden agen-
das I will actively actively
- do everything I can to
ensure their defeat. They can


Let 'em


Have It


choose to run and they can
also choose to be completely
rejected by people who have
intellectual honesty and emo-
tional maturity. I am absolute-
ly tired of the flim-flam scam,
the calls to fear-mongering
and the constant blaming of
others for the problems they're
suppose to solve, not create.
Should they be re-elected?
Heck no.
Message. Want to let you
know that I don't think Ed
Martin, Ernie Zavodnyik and
Sue Lang should run for re-
election this year. However, if
they were to run, maybe it
would be a good thing-when
they lose, they would get the
message from the people of
Venice.
Why. I think Ed Martin,
Ernie Zavodnyik and Sue Lang
should run for re-election. I
think we should remember the
skyscrapers that we have in
Venice and why we voted for
them in the first place.
Fantastic. Yes, is the an-
swer. Yes, they should run


again for re-election. Ed Mart-
in, Ernie Zavodnyik and Sue
Lang are fantastic people and
they have saved our commu-
nity from the people such as
the CQG and people like the
editor of this paper, Bob Ved-
der.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Recently retir-
ed, Bob Vedder was the publisher
of the paper.
Costly. I don't think they
should run for re-election be-
cause of the amount of money
they have cost the city and the
e-mail scandal.
Flat no. Should Ed Martin,
Ernie Zavodnyik and Sue Lang
run for re-election? No.
Thanks. Yes, they should
run again this year. The gov-
ernment has definitely bene-
fited from their services and
they deserve our thanks and
respect.
Right track. I would very
much like to see Ed Martin,
Ernie Zavodnyik and Sue Lang
be re-elected. After many
years, we finally got city coun-
cil members who are not in-
debted to any special interests
and had only the interests of
our citizens at heart. They've
put the city back on the right
track and I hope they will con-
tinue their valuable contribu-
tions.
Committed. I'm calling to
support Ed Martin, Ernie Za-
vodnyik and Sue Lang for re-
election to city council. They
have kept partisan politics out
of their service to the city. They
are committed to Venice
issues. They do their home-
work. They keep themselves
updated on issues. They've
prevented special interests
from taking over certain pro-
jects and have benefited the
city by being in line with mod-
erate growth, smart growth,
controlled growth. I definitely
support their re-election. One
thing I'm curious about is why
this question did not come up
when Mayor Hammett and
Mr. Willson were running for
re-election? Just wondering
why this is coming up now
with these particular candi-
dates.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


School tax is


investment in future


Editor:
Members of the Sarasota County Democratic Party
have voted overwhelmingly in support of continuing
the 1-mill property tax to maintain a level of excel-
lence in our local schools, as have the Longboat Key,
North Port and Sarasota Democratic Clubs. Other
clubs in the area are also considering formal positions
at this time and indicators are good that the response
will be favorable from those clubs as well.
Democrats are joined in their support of this issue
by the Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce and
the Young Professionals organization, the Argus
Foundation, the Sarasota and Venice Area Realtor
associations and other business and civic groups. The
reason for such broad-based support is very simple:
The referendum has helped to establish Sarasota
County schools as a "district of distinction" among
our peers across the state. It helped stabilize our prop-
erty values during the Great Recession and will con-
tribute to future gains as a direct result of our stu-
dents' performance achievements.
The caliber of education in our community has
helped to attract businesses and high-wage jobs to
our area. We have recruited some of the most highly
qualified professionals from across the country to
help educate the next generation of highly qualified
professionals. We are finally beginning to see the
achievement gap narrow as graduation rates improve
and dropout rates decline.
The investment $1 for every $1,000 of taxable

the value, advantages and benefits it contributes in
making this a great community to live, work, retire

Disaster nothing new in Haiti


MIKE BILLINGTON
GUEST COLUMNIST



His name was Albert
Paul and he was a stick fig-
ure of a man, all bones
and angles, who sold
chewing gum and cigaret-
tes on the Rue des Mir-
acles in Port-au-Prince.
His place of business
was a faded blanket
spread out on the side-
walk. On good days, he
found a shady spot be-
neath an awning to
spread out his wares. On
bad days, he did business
beneath the blazing
Caribbean sun. On those
bad days, his chewing
gum would be little more
than a gluey mess by
noon.
Business was never
good for Albert, but on
some days it was better
than others, and that was
enough to keep him


going. Too thin and too
old to make a living in
construction or at one of
the factories that lined
the road from the airport
into the city, selling gum
and cigarettes was about
all the work he could
handle.
He was philosophical
about that. The Good
God, he told me more
than once, has a plan for
us all. For him, God's
plan meant selling chew-
ing gum and cigarettes
on the Street of Miracles
in a city where miracles
were in short supply.
I don't know why I
started talking to Albert
in the first place or why,
whenever I flew into
Port-au-Prince on as-
signment, I always
sought him out. He was a
friendly older man who
spoke enough English to
make up for the gaps in
my Creole vocabulary,
and that made it easy to
talk to him.
He was also some-
thing of a social and po-
litical barometer. Albert
saw a lot as he sat on the
sidewalk. He heard a lot,
too, and he was willing to
share some of his
thoughts on just about
any subject.


There was more to it
than that, though. I think
I always found time to
talk with him because he
was something of a mira-
cle himself. I admired his
fortitude, his patience
with the fate dealt him. I
admired his willingness
to get up every morning,
roll his chewing gum and
cigarettes in the blanket
and go to work. I ad-
mired that Albert Paul
had survived everything
life had thrown at him.
When I heard the
news that a major earth-
quake had devastated
Port-au-Prince, my first
thoughts were of Albert
Paul. It's not that we had
stayed in touch. The last
time I spoke with him,
Bill Clinton was in the
White House. We never
exchanged phone calls or
letters or Christmas cards,
and I hadn't thought
about him in years.
But when I saw the
first post-earthquake vid-
eos, I found myself
searching the faces of
survivors, looking for his.
Foolish, of course. For
all I knew, Albert Paul
had died long before the
quake hit. Disease could
have taken him years
ago. Or an accident.


But I kept looking
because, for me, Albert
Paul is Haiti. His country
is poor and undernour-
ished, and yet it survived
for two centuries against
all odds. It endured em-
perors, presidents-for-
life, the tonton macout-
es*, occupations by for-
eign powers, gang wars,
palace coups and ex-
ploitation by just about
every industrial power in
the world. It endured not
because it is a cohesive
country with a stable
government, but be-
cause its people learned
to bear almost impossi-
ble burdens with a res-
olute spirit.
I have no doubt Haiti
will endure the ravages of
this latest disaster.
And, if the Good God
wills it, perhaps a miracle
will happen and Haiti
will emerge better than it
was before.
I can only hope.

Tonton macoutes:
Creole for bogeymen,
personal police force of
dictator Francois "Papa
Doc" Duvalier.

Lady Indians ready for postseason


MR. SHEEPSHEAD
COLUMNIST


Sights a-plenty

in our outdoors
I believe the average per-
son misses many of the won-
derful things in the outdoors.
Let's talk about the beach.
Years ago, I lived on the
beach and fished every day.
I've been on the beach at
daybreak and seen pods of
tarpon only 80 to 100 away.
Fourteen years ago, I hooked
and released a huge snook
after chasing it down the
beach. Naturally, I didn't
have a camera but I did have
a fisherman witness as this
monster was 42 inches long
and estimated her pregnant
weight at about 35 pounds.
I never take for granted
our wonderful creatures we
share with in our area. I am
personally fascinated with
the large variety of birds. I sit
on my lanai in the evening
and count them. I have an
advantage because there is a
rookery just behind the trees
on the other side of my pond.
The wide array of birds
include snowy egrets, great
white egrets, ibis, blue and
night herons, wood storks,
anhingas, morhens, ducks,
blue jays, grackles, sparrows,
hawks, doves and crows.
Occasionally I see a kingfish-
er, sandhill cranes, pelicans,
quail and others I can't iden-
tify or remember.
We also have several vari-
eties of turtles. Most of the area
ponds have largemouth bass,
bluegills (bream), stump-
knockers, brown and yellow
bullheads, talapia, speckled
perch crappiess) and land-
locked snook. Squirrels, rab-
bits, raccoons and occasional-
ly a bobcat are in the area.
Isn't this fantastic, consid-
ering all of my observations
are within the Venice city
limits.
I realize how lucky I am.
Let's hope Mother Nature will
take it easy on us this spring
and summer. Hopefully any
hurricanes will only bring
much needed rain and no
destruction.
Well, fellow Sheepshead-
ites, the time has come to say
goodbye until next week.

Mr Sheepshead is Dave
Hack. Contact him at

Last year, the Venice High
girls soccer team was happy to
win its first district title in 15
years and qualify for the post-
season.
After winning their second
straight district crown last
week, the Lady Indians have a
different agenda this season.
Venice (14-5-3), the District
10 champion, is preparing for
their second consecutive trip
to the playoffs on Thursday
against District 9 runner-up
Hillsborough (7-3-2) in the
Class 5A-Region 3 quarterfinal
at Powell-Davis Stadium.
Last year, the Lady Indians
dropped a heartbreaking 2-1
overtime match to Seminole in
the regional quarterfinal.
"Last year we were all excit-
ed about winning the district
and taking it away from
Lakewood Ranch," said Venice
coach Sheldon Chamberlain.
"That was our major focus.
This year we are past that idea
and we are into 'let's win the
region and get into the final
four.' Looks to me like we have
the horses to get that far. The
ride could be good."
"I think we are more pre-
pared and know what to
expect," said Venice junior
midfielder Alyssa Tresch. "Now


we are focusing on getting far-
ther. We want to go all the way."
"I think we are better than
last year," said Venice defend-
er Jessica Lambrecht, a four-
year varsity player. "We have
become better players. We
were really excited to win
back-to-back districts."
To help with a postseason
run, Chamberlain amped up
the team's schedule this year.
Venice played state power-
houses such as American
Heritage, out of Delray Beach
and Plantation as well as
Clearwater Central Catholic,
unbeaten Lakewood Ranch,
Valrico Bloomindale, Clear-
water Central Catholic and
Tampa Berkeley Prep.
Though the Lady Indians
lost or either tied those match-
es, they learned from them and
can use this information to
prepare for the playoffs.
"We know what to expect,"
said Chamberlain. "We know
how much energy we need to
put into it. How much thinking.
How much focus. How much
will to win. We learned how to
play against very good players
and that they can rise up and
play at that level."
"We know we are going to be
playing tougher teams as we go
on," said Tresch.

It onlytook one officialvisit forVenice's
Bo Ceravolo to decide on a college.
After his first and only visit last week-
end, the 6-foot, 190 pound wide receiv-
er committed to Division I-AA Delaware
State University in Dover, Del.
"I was their number one receiver for
a while," said Ceravolo. "They came to
school and talked to me for two
months, invited me up for a visit and
offered me."
The 17-year-old will receive a full
athletic scholarship.
This marks the sixth Venice High
football player who has committed to
college in the fall.


Thomas notched the final qualify-
ing spot at 110 pounds with a third
place.
"Four out of five," said Venice
coach Nancy Tessier. "I'm really, real-
ly pleased with that. Good day for us.
We are happy and looking forward to
the state meet."
After looking at the totals, Tessier
knows her lifters can do better.
"They weren't as good," said Tessier.
"Don't know if they were nervous
about today because it was so impor-
tant of a day. They should be good by
the time state comes, when the totals
really matter."
One of the lifters who struggled a
little was Chappel.
After a successful bench press of
130 pounds, Chappel missed on her
final two attempts at 135 pounds.
The miss upset her to the point of
tears.

BOYS SOCCER CLASS 5A-DISTRICT 10


Pirates end Venice's season


BY DAWN KLEMISH
SPORTS WRITER

A little shift in formation was all it
took for the Port Charlotte boys to see a
big change in the offense. The Pirates,
who have been searching for a striker
all season, got four goals from Mark
Baten on Saturday to eliminate Venice
from district play with a 4-0 win.
The win gets the Pirates a little bit of
revenge as Venice blanked them, 3-0 in
the regular season.
"The two matches were totally dif-
ferent," said Venice coach Seth Jones
about the two matches against the
Pirates. "When we beat them we looked
good, passed good and looked sharp.
We tried to play kick and run type of
game and not controlling our passes."
The Pirates (7-5-6) into the second
round of the Class 5A-District 10 play-
offs for the first time in four seasons as
the Pirates advanced to today's semifi-
nal against No. 1 Manatee.
Baten gave Port Charlotte a 1-0 lead
by beating Venice goalkeeper Aaron
Nowak in the 33rd minute on a 3-on-2
breakaway.
Venice (4-10-2) had an opportunity
to score in the 23rd minute but Port
Charlotte goalkeeper Alex Akers
stopped a penalty kick by Andrew
Chlebina.
"We started off and maintained in
the first half," said Jones. "We missed
the penalty kick and that took the
steam out of us. He thought the keeper
was going to go right or left but he
stayed in the middle and that's where
he kicked it."
The forward added an insurance
goal less than four minutes into the sec-
ond half, heading a corner kick from
Cameron Mathewson into the back of
the cage.
In the 65th minute, Baten again bested

"It's good to play a
challenging team so we
can become better play-
ers," said Lambrecht.
The Lady Indians have
scored 75 goals this year,
and junior Dana La-
Rocque and senior Tina
Trujic have combined to
score 55 of those goals.
Defense has been
stellar with 11 shutouts.
In their losses, the Lady
Indians have allowed
more than three goals in
only one match.
"We're ready for what-
ever (Class) 5A has for
us," said Chamberlain.
"We are ready to take that
next step. I have confi-
dence in them and they

Cold helps with state manatee counts


BY STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER


The extreme cold
snap was hard on many
Florida species, but it
had one beneficial effect:
It helped state
researchers count mana-
tees throughout Florida.
As a result, research-
ers recorded the highest
count the state has ever
seen.
The Fish and Wildlife
Research Institute is re-
porting that a prelimi-
nary count had docu-
mented 5,067 manatees
statewide. Twenty-one
observers from 10 orga-
nizations counted 2,779
manatees roaming in
waters along Florida's
East Coast and another
2,288 on the West Coast.
Researchers expect to
complete their analysis
of the preliminary results
by the end of February.
This year's counts, how-
ever, appear significantly
higher than prior years.
Last year, for example,
observers spotted 1,200
manatees.
"This year's high
count reflects the influ-
ence that weather has on
aerial survey results,"
said state wildlife biolo-
gist Holly Edwards in a
prepared statement.
"The record-breaking
cold temperatures help-
ed to bring many more
manatees to the warm-
water sites than in previ-
ous years," Edwards said.
"In addition, the calm,
clear weather conditions
on the days of the survey
helped us to see and
count record numbers."
Records
When water tempera-
tures dip around 70
degrees or lower, mana-
tees tend to cluster at
warm water sources,
such the discharge ca-
nals of power plants or
Florida's natural springs
with constant water
temperatures of 72 to 74
degrees.
State researchers cau-
tioned this year's count
should not be interpret-
ed as a jump in the state
manatee population nor
should the numbers be
used to speculate on any
trends.


Instead, the count
simply shows at least
5,000 manatees are now
in Florida waters. The
count is consistent with
models that show the
manatee population is
growing or stable in
most areas of the state.
However, according to
recent research, mana-
tee population models
indicate the population
could decline by more
than 50 percent in the
next 50 years. Research
projections suggest
Florida's mature mana-
tees could decline by
more than 20 percent in
the next two genera-
tions.
The record-breaking
count also comes on the
heels of a record-break-
ing year of manatee
deaths.
State researchers doc-
umented 429 manatee
deaths in 2009, beating
the previous record of
417 manatee deaths set
in 2006. In addition,
2009 also was a record
year of 56 cold-stress
deaths.
This year isn't starting
out well for the mana-
tees.
Between Jan. 1 and
Jan. 15, 31 dead mana-
tees were discovered in
Florida waters, 23 more
than were recovered
during the same time
period in 2009. Of this
year's deaths, research-
ers determined 22 died
of cold stress, one of
watercraft injuries, one
of other human causes,
two perinatal deaths of
immature manatees and
four of undetermined
causes. There was one
unrecovered but verified
manatee carcass.
In 2007, state wildlife
officials debated wheth-
er the manatees should
be reclassified from an
endangered marine
mammal species to a
threatened species. The
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Commission voted to
keep manatees listed as
an endangered species.
The state wildlife
commission expects to
vote on new definitions
for what makes a species
endangered or threat-
ened, said Kipp Frohlich
of the commission's Im-


periled Species Manage-
ment Section. However,
federal wildlife officials
still list manatees as en-
dangered, and the state
likes to mirror those
classifications, Frohlich
said.
And as far as the num-
ber of manatees spotted
in Florida waters this year,
Frohlich said, "No single
count will affect the man-
atees' status."

FLORIDA MANATEES FACTS
The West Indian manatee is the species found in
Florida waters. Its range is from the southern Unit-
ed States up the eastern coastline into Georgia, the
Carolinas and beyond during warm months. In the
Gulf of Mexico, they are occasionally sighted as far
west as Texas.
The West Indian manatee also roams waters
throughout the Caribbean, Central America south
to northern South America.
Other species include the West African mana-
tee, found in waters on the West African coast, and
the Amazonian manatee, found strictly in the fresh
water of Amazon River and Orinoco River basins.
The closely related dugong, with a rear flipper
like a dolphin or whale, inhabits coastal waters of
eastern Africa and Arabia, India, Australia and
Southeast Asia.
Feeding in both fresh and saltwater, the herbivo-
rous manatee, appropriately nicknamed "sea cow,"
can grow to 10 feet long and weigh 1,000 pounds
or more. Scientists estimate a manatee will eat up
to 10 percent of its body weight every day.
Manatees can hold their breath for up to 20 min-
utes. They typically surface to breathe approximate-
ly every three to five minutes. They rest from two to
12 hours a day.
Anyone spotting a distressed, injured or dead
manatee can call the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's toll-free Wildlife Alert at
(888) 404-3922. Cellular phone customers can dial
*FWC or #FWC.

VRMC IS YOUR PARTNER IN THE

BATTLE AGAINST HEART FAILURE


ISAMRIAN

HART
MOT


February is American
Heart Month, a good time
to remind ourselves about
the dangers of heart disease
and learn more about what
we can do to prevent and
recognize its symptoms.


W One of the most prevalent forms
of heart disease is heart failure. While
this term sounds scary as if the heart has stopped working
altogether it actually refers to the heart's inability to pump
blood as well as it should. A weakened heart cannot supply
the body's cells with enough blood and oxygen, often resulting
in fatigue, persistent coughing or wheezing, retention of
fluids, shortness of breath, and confusion.
Heart failure can be caused by something congenital, such
as a heart defect present at birth or an abnormal heart valve.
It can also be caused by the same poor lifestyle choices that
can lead to heart attacks or strokes, such as smoking, obesity,
eating fatty foods, and a lack of physical exercise. Having an
underlying condition such as high blood pressure, coronary
artery disease, diabetes, lung disease, or severe anemia can
significantly increase one's chances of developing heart failure.
Sometimes one or more of these problems may be present
over a period of years without the person being aware of it,
causing a gradual weakening of the heart over time.
While heart failure is a serious condition, it can be
managed. An estimated 5.7 million Americans are living with
heart failure, and 670,000 new cases are diagnosed each year.
Heart failure is usually not curable but it can be controlled
and even improved with the proper adjustments to one's diet
and exercise regimen and by working with one's physician to
follow a treatment strategy that may include medication and/
or surgery.
Venice Regional Medical Center (VRMC) can be an
important partner in the battle against heart failure. The
hospital was recently awarded Disease-Specific Care
Certification for its heart failure program by the Joint
Commission. This certification speaks volumes about the
expert level of care provided to heart failure patients at
VRMC. To earn this distinction, the hospital voluntarily
undergoes an extensive on-site review process every two years.
VRMC also achieved Stroke Center Certification through
the Joint Commission in 2009, and for the fourth consecutive
year, was named one of the nation's 100 Top Hospitals for
cardiovascular care by Thomson Reuters.

its ongoing commitment to excellence in health care, visit us

BRIEFS


THE STATS ON HEART
DISEASE IN AMERICA

The statistics on heart disease in
America aren't pretty. In fact, they
offer a sobering reminder of just how
serious heart disease can be and the
importance of making the necessary
adjustments in diet and lifestyle to
encourage a healthy heart.
According to estimates provided
by the American Heart Association
(AHA) for the year 2006, more than
80 million people in the United States
have one or more forms of cardiovas-
cular disease. Over 6 million suffered
a stroke and 5.8 million endured heart
failure. Cardiovascular disease was
responsible for one out of every 2.9
American deaths in 2006, claiming a
staggering 831,272 lives. This figure is
more than the total number of deaths
from cancer and HIV combined.
Coronary heart disease is caused by
the narrowing of the coronary arter-
ies due to fatty buildups of plaque. It
is likely to produce chest pain and/or
heart attack. Coronary heart disease
is the single leading cause of death in
America today. Experts estimate that
this year 1.26 million Americans will
have a new or recurrent coronary attack.
The disease strikes equally between
men and women and does not discrimi-
nate along racial lines or geographical
boundaries.
Now for a bit of good news. From
1996 to 2006, death rates from cardio-
vascular disease declined by nearly 30%.
This can be attributed to improvements
in medical technology, as well as grow-
ing understanding by the public of the
risks of heart disease and the steps that
people can take to increase their chances
of preventing or mitigating this danger-
ous disease.

Warbirds winging back to Venice

Vintage World War II planes arrive at airport today for a three-day stay
BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

A North American P-51 Mustang will fly into Venice today, Jan. 27, for only the second time since World War II.
Back then, when today's Venice Municipal Airport was a U.S. Army Air Base, pilots were trained on the P-51s.
Today's fly-in will include a Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress and a Consolidated B-24 Liberator. The occasion is the 21st annual Collings Foundation Wings of Freedom Tour, which
includes a three-day visit to Venice. The Mustang, which will act as escort plane, is the last remaining two-seater Mustang, which makes flights possible for a lucky few.
Residents and visitors should be able to hear and see the planes as they approach the city at about noon and fly into the airport from Fort Myers. Usually, they fly up the
coast a bit north of the city, turn west and then south to the airport. They will be parked near the jet center where the public can come check out the planes, walk through
the larger ones and even take a ride.
The Liberator is the only fully restored plane of its type still flying. Its restoration took more than 97,000 man-hours.
The planes, restored to wartime configurations, will be displayed from noon to 4 p.m. today, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday and from 9 a.m. until noon Friday, when
they depart for the next stop on the tour.
These three planes are the most traveled of the Collings Foundation collection in Stow, Top, the only restored Consolidated B-24 Liberator in the world will fly into Venice Jan.

'Stick time'
A few years ago, I flew into Venice on the B-17, a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We sat
on the floor, leaning back against the fuselage, with seat belts fastened for take-off and
landing, but were able to get up and look out where gun turrets had been during the war.
Flying along the coast in the big, bulky plane with its unique thrumming sound, we
Right, this P-51 Mustang is one of just a few Mustangs remaining from World War II. Although this plane
was not used in Venice, Mustangs were the planes used for training in Venice during World War II. Most
were scrapped to reuse the aluminum as the nation prospered after the war.The Mustang will fly into
Venice Jan. 27 as part of the 21st annual Collings Foundation Wings of Freedom Tour.

Below, the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, foreground, will fly into Venice Wednesday,

of the flight to recognize landmarks, and I could spot my

Also available this year is "stick time" aboard the P-51
for $2,200-$3,200. Walk-through tours are offered for a
donation of $12 per adult and $6 for children younger
than 12.
These donations help maintain the aircraft, which
cost some $4,000 per flight hour.

Beth Sholom Schools, hold some of the donations they collected for The Wildlife Center of Venice.


First-graders to the rescue


FROM TEMPLE BETH SHOLOM
SCHOOLS
The first-grade students at
Temple Beth Sholom Schools,
Goldie Feldman Academy, Sarasota,
chose The Wildlife Center of Venice
as the beneficiary of their annual
mitzvah (good act) project following


an inspirational visit on Nov. 4 from
Peg Magee, a volunteer at the center.
In addition to discussing the
center's wildlife rescue efforts,
Magee brought a real squirrel's
nest to show the children.
The students had many ques-
tions and shared their own ani-
mal rescue experiences. One stu-


dent said, "My Daddy picked up
a turtle that was on the road."
The students and their teachers,
Jodi Behrenfeld and Ellen Cohen,
spent the next six weeks collecting a
variety of donations from bleach to
dog food as well as monetary dona-
tions to support the good work of
The Wildlife Center of Venice.

Local schools focus


on literacy through Jan. 28


BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER


Local middle schools are holding
events this week that will help families
celebrate the love of reading. The fami-
ly literacy nights are part of the Star-
books reading program.
Starbooks promotes literacy among
children of all ages. The program
encourages reading for enjoyment
through the involvement of students,
parents, teachers, media specialists
and literacy coaches.
Middle school students in the coun-
ty have read young-adult fiction, by
such authors as Gordon Korman,
Roland Smith and Jordan Sonnenblick.
The authors have visited area middle
schools to talk about their writing.
The Starbooks program also in-
cludes ongoing teacher training, read-
ing corners in school media centers
and family literacy nights. This year,
Starbooks is being funded by a
$267,150 Community Foundation of


Sarasota County grant. It is the middle-
school component of the foundation's
commitment to improving literacy and
promoting reading among children
and adults.
The scheduled family literacy nights
and related events include:
Thursday, Jan. 28, 6-7 p.m., at
Laurel Nokomis School, parents will
have a chance to hear about "Schooled"
and "Swindle," the Gordon Korman
books that their sixth- and seventh-
grade students have been reading as
part of the Starbooks grant. Students
will participate in a readers' theater
presentation and be able to swap books
and trade baseball cards. Parents will
be able to learn about the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test. The
school's jazz band will perform and
refreshments will be served.

School Choice requests due Feb. 1-19


School choice application forms will be
available beginning Monday, Feb. 1, at all
public schools, at selected day-care facili-
ties or by calling 927-9000, ext. 32255.


FROM SARASOTA
COUNTY SCHOOL
DISTRICT

Parents may ask for
their children to attend a
Sarasota County public
school in 2010-11 other
than their districted
school by submitting a
school choice applica-
tion from Monday, Feb.
1, through Friday, Feb.
19.
Since space is limited
and demand may be
high at some schools, it is
typically not possible to
accommodate all re-
quests. School choice
approvals will be deter-
mined by a random lot-
tery process, rather than
on a first-come, first-
served basis.


Students will be as-
signed automatically to
their districted school
(based on the location of
their residence) or their
current school, unless a
school choice applica-
tion is received.
School choice applica-
tion forms will be avail-
able beginning Monday,
Feb. 1, at all public
schools, at selected day-
care facilities or by call-
ing 927-9000, ext. 32255.
Parents will be notified of
choice assignments in
early April.
The ability for parents
to choose a school out-
side of their district be-
gan 13 years ago in the
Sarasota County School
District and has been
well received by both


parents and school ad-
ministrators. Options for
school choice are limited
at some schools for the
2010-11 year if those
schools are near their
enrollment capacity.
The complete list of
schools open to choice is
available at www.Sara
sotaCountySchools.net/
departments/ school
choice.
Other district options,
such as charter schools,
magnet schools or mag-
net programs, do not
require the completion
of a school choice appli-
cation. Students interest-
ed in attending these
schools or programs (in-
cluding Bay Haven

to place in the top 25 at the
15th annual Evening of
Excellence juried art show
Jan. 20. She was the only
local student to bring
home two awards.
Steele won a Bank of

titled "50's Blues" and re-
ceived a top award for her
drawing titled "Classic
Black." Her teacher is Craig
Seidell.
Other VHS students
who won top awards are:
Amanda Chappell,
senior, student of Seidell,
for her painting titled
"Big Al";
Brittani McCracken,
senior, student of Seidell,
for her painting titled
"Empathy"; and
Kayla Obendorf,
sophomore, student of
Alice Sciarrino, for pho-
tography titled "Stairway
to the Sky."
Lindsey Grigsby, a
Pine View School fresh-
man, student of Retsy
Lauer, also won a Bank of
America Best of School
award, for her drawing
titled "Dry Docked."
Three other Pine View

Sam Levine, junior,
student of Lauer, for his


electronic media artwork
titled "Pollen"; and
Hallie White, senior,

titled "Nightmares."
The top 25 entries
were chosen from a field
of 310 entries submitted
by students from every
public high school in
Sarasota County. All en-
tries were on display pri-
or to the event at Ring-
ling College's Ulla Searing
Student Center Exhibi-
tion Hall, where the
awards were announced.
Winning students will
receive monetary awards
and recognition, which
includes about $40,000
in merit awards, scholar-
ships and art department
grants. They will be pho-
tographed with their art-
work by Pollux Photog-
raphy and each piece will


be framed by local gal-
leries, which are donat-
ing their services.
The students are do-
nating the winning piec-
es to the Education Foun-
dation of Sarasota, which
will auction off the art-
work. Last year's event
raised more than $260,000
in cash and in-kind sup-
port. All proceeds go to
benefit the 41,500 local
public school students.
The winning students
will be honored at the
Evening of Excellence

chael's On East.

Florida's Blood Centers extends $1 per blood donor to Haitian Relief Fund


FROM FLORIDA'S
BLOOD CENTERS


Florida's Blood Centers is
extending its Haitian earth-
quake relief fund through
Jan. 31, giving $1 per blood
donor to help the Haitians
recover from this monumen-
tal disaster.
For everyone who attempts

donate $1 to the American Red
Cross Haiti Relief Fund. FBC is
also donating more than 1,000

The U.S. Armed Services
Blood Program is coordinating
blood shipments to Haiti, and
America's Blood Centers, a

banks, encourages donors to
schedule appointments for
blood donations. FBC asks its
donors to give blood as soon as
possible to make sure its sup-
ply here is adequate. FBC will

health. The entire procedure,
from completing a short med-
ical history to drawing the

Pine View student earns


Eagle Scout award


FROM SONS OF
THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION

Eagle Scout Grant Tucker, a senior at
Pine View School, received a Sons of the
American Revolution Eagle Scout Med-
al from the Saramana Chapter during
the group's luncheon on Jan. 8 at the
Holiday Inn on Lido Key.
In recognition of his selection,
Tucker also received an Eagle Scout
Patch to wear on his uniform, a certifi-
cate of recognition and a $250 cash
award.
Tucker was chosen from a group of
four young Eagles trying for the SAR
award. The choice was based upon a
review of a 10-point interview and the
choice and presentation of an essay
topic.
Tucker's Eagle rank came after his
efforts in leading his scout troop in con-
structing a 200-foot crushed shell walk-
ing path over a bed of mulch to serve
Mary's Chapel at Historic Spanish Point
in Osprey.
Tucker said the design for the path
was chosen because the 30-acre area
had been at one time the home of an
ancient people, as evidenced by the


Calusa Indian burial mound and the
two shell mound middens found there.
(A midden is a waste disposal area.)
Tucker is a member of Troop 895,
which meets at First Congregation-
al/United Church of Christ in Sarasota.
He is the oldest of four siblings, the
child of Thomas and Olga Tucker, of
Sarasota.
Tucker read his original essay about
Benjamin Franklin to the assembled
group of about 80 persons. As a man
renowned for his versatility in writing
and publishing, his many inventions,
his leadership and statesmanship,
Franklin as the subject for Tucker's
essay was deemed appropriate because
scouting demands that an Eagle-rank
applicant acquire at least a basic
knowledge of many tasks that would
each earn the scout a badge, and fur-
ther, that he perform a task that will
serve his fellow citizens.
Tucker is invited to participate at the
SAR state level in a competition with
other chapter winners. The winner at
state may choose to continue on to the
National Eagle Scout competition dur-
ing the national convention in the sum-
mer of 2010.

Maestro Kenneth
Bowermeister introduces
Nathaniel Parker at the

Concert.


FRAN VALENCIC
SOCIAL COLUMNIST

In her encore song at the
Venice Symphony Pops Con-
cert, Deborah Berioli sang,
"If birds can fly over the
rainbow, why, oh why, can't
I?" She did. After each song,
the audience stood to
applaud.
"One more time," some-
one shouted after the sopra-
no sang "Vilia" from "The
Merry Widow." People wait-
ed after the concert to pur-
chase her CD.
The concert highlighted
Maestro Kenneth Bower-
meister's brilliance. He chose
beautiful songs. The musi-
cians sounded crisp and
inspired. He featured Berioli.
He started the evening


with "There's No Business
Like Show Business." He
included highlights from
"Wicked." Then he stepped
back and let everything come
up roses.
Everyone who attended
the pops concert experi-
enced magic.
"I don't think you could
hear anything better any-
where," said Ed Campbell,
who was sitting next to me.
I wish we could bottle the
feeling.
The next concert is on Feb.
5. Call 412-4725.
Berioli performs at 7 p.m.
at the Universalist Unitarian

This terrific singer shares
her passion for music by
engaging this community.
She performs at various con-
certs in town. She produces
concerts through her Venice
Performing Arts Series and
resides as minister of music
at the Unitarian Universalist
Church. Her CD fills the spir-
it long after her performance
is done.
She always takes time not
just to talk to fans but to
engage them in conversation
and make them feel as
though she has all the time in
the world to be with them.
She has he amazing gift of joy
and spreads that joy to those
she meets.
Deborah Berioli is one of
the sopranos who make
Venice a great place to live.

Two binges

I have been on a theater binge. It began with "Blue
and Orange" Jan. 5 at the Cook in Sarasota's FSU
Center for the Performing Arts, followed by the
brilliant performance of Jeremy Heideman in Venice
Theatre's production of "I Am My Own Wife" and
ended last Friday with "Hearts" back at the FSU
Center but on the Mertz stage. In between I made a
trip to Fort Myers to see the Broadway Palm Dinner
Theatre's rousing production of "George M" and then
back hoe to Venice for "Sly Fox" at Venice Theatre
before getting into musical mode at Florida Studio
Theatre's cabaret production of "Reflections" followed
two days later by "The Wonderettes" at Sarasota
Golden Apple Dinner Theatre, time out on Sunday for
the Circus Ring of Fame induction ceremonies at St.
Armands Circle and "Five Years" at the Historic Asolo
Theater.
It was also possible to binge on circus during the
past month, beginning with the Sailor Circus holiday
shows in Sarasota during late December, The Rin-
gling Bros. and Barnum & Baily Gold Show in Saraso-
ta, that company's Blue unit premier in St. Petersburg
and Circus Cirquesa in Venice. Complete that binge
period with Circus Sarasota, which opens Feb. 12.
There is no lack of things to do here on the
Cultural Coast.

International


artists coming


to Englewood


BY STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER
T his year's Englewood Bank
Invitational Art Show will be an
international affair this year.
Takashi Yamashita, a Tokyo-born
architect and watercolorist, will be
among the 55 artists expected to
attend this year's show. Yamashita is
an active member of the NPO Inter-
national Arts & Crafts Promo-
tion, the organization that
sponsored the Yokohama .,
International Open-Air
Art Fair of which
included Englewood
artist Carroll Swayze
and nine other North
American artist.
Swayze describes
Yamashita's work as a "delil-
cate blend of drawing and painting,
using form, shape and color to
create his images."
"He's really different," Swazyze
said, explaining how Yamashita's work
attempts to break beyond the con-
straints and conformities of contempo-
rary Japanese life. "And he's traveling
a thousand miles to be here."
Yamashita's family moved from
Japan to London, England when he
was 2 1/2 years old and returned to
Japan five years later. In 1961, his
family moved again, to Arlington, Va.,
where he attended school from sixth


to tenth grade.
After majoring in architecture at
Tokyo's Waseda University Yamashita
and friends established their own
architectural office in 1989.
"As a practicing architect I have
designed both residential and com-
mercial buildings, from private homes
to gymnasiums," Yamashita said.
"Architecture in our society is based
more on rational thinking
such as function, engi-
:. neering, building costs
and the objectives set
by the clients and the
society.
"I believe art com-
plements what is
lacking in architecture in
Japan," he said. "Art is
nonrational and more per-
sonal, and at the same time it has
the influential energy to broaden our
view of the world."
Yamashita describes his work as "an
investigation into this irrational field of
what we perceive as the reality
of our world."
For Englewood, Swayze said
Yamashita's visit can help broaden
people's views. As long-time Engle-
wood resident, Swayze said, "Living
in a small town can sometimes make
you forget there's a big world out
there."
Yamashita isn't alone in bringing an

Fernandini and award-winning Cana-
dian sculptor Sandy Cline, will also

berg, will be showing their latest
works.

and waves.
Lisanne Monier whose creations


includes copper sea creatures and
handmade paper collages.
Teri Causey who gives furniture a
tropical colorful flair.
The art show will includes all forms
of creative expression fine jewelry,

Local Trop-Rock band hits the high note


BY SHARE DERRICKSON
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Saturday evening Jan. 9, may have
seemed like a typical gig for the
Trop-Rock-style Jack Mosley
Band. The dance floor at Benedettos in
Punta Gorda was packed with
Hawaiian-shirt clad Parrothead-types
and fans that came to let loose Jack
Mosley style.
Some danced on chairs holding up
beers. Some danced in groups belting
out the lyrics to songs they know so
well. The energy was palpable. It was a
large crowd having a great time with a
favorite band.
But, sitting in the audience was an
unfamiliar face someone who came
to watch, listen, and possibly change
the life of Englewood homeboy Jack
Mosley and his band a man by the
name of Norbert Putnam.
Putnam, a world-famous music
producer that produced some of Jimmy
Buffett's biggest records, as well as the
late Dan Fogleberg and many other
acts that made it to the top a man
that was friends with Elvis and his
band, sat at a table at Benedettos for
one reason to assess whether or not
the Jack Mosley Band have what it
takes to make it in the big time and if
so, should Putnam sign on as their
producer?
"What I look for in a band," Putman
said, "is not only the talent, but how
much energy they give off and get back
from the audience.
That is something you have to see in
person," he said, adding that is why he
made the trek from his home in Ten-
nessee to see if the energy was there
and how it might translate from live
performance to studio recording.
"They certainly have the energy and
the music," Putnam said.
The following morning, Mosley said,
he met with Putnam for brunch.
Putnam gave Mosley the news he did
indeed decide to sign on as The Jack
Mosley Band's producer.
The recording will be made in
Nashville using some of the music-
industry's heavy hitters in the studio
along with Mosley's fellow bandmem-
bers, Rick Rehnberg, Don Bonzi, and
Allen Chase. "I work with the absolute
best group of guys I could dream of,"
Mosley said.
Mosley said he was stunned when
he heard. "We have dreamed of this for

so long, and all of a sudden, it comes
true and you just say, 'What?'"
Since Mosley writes most of the
music, he is in the process of weeding
down to the ones he wants to produce
in the studio in Memphis. "Right now, I
have it narrowed down to about 20."
Mosley will travel to Memphis the
beginning of February and starts studio
work Feb. 8. "It will take about three


weeks for the tracks to be laid down,"
he said.
After a polished CD is done, the next
hurdle is shopping it around to the
various record labels, he said.
However, with powerhouse Norbert
Putnam's credibility behind the band,
that may not be too difficult an under-
taking good news for Trop-Rock fans
everywhere.


Bass guitar player Rick Rehnberg gets in the
groove.

Dali is a gem


IMAGES COURTESY OF THE DALI MUSEUM
Salvador Dalf, "The Disintegration of the Persistence of Memory," 1952-54
Oil on panel, in the collection of the Salvador Dalf Museum, St. Petersburg


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
E verytime I visit the Salvador Dali
Museum in St. Petersburg, I discover yet
another facet of the man and artist
known simply as Dali.
Currently on view are objects designed by
Dali that include gems, some faceted. Some
gems are set in precious metals but the
exhibition also contains paintings, drawings,
glassware and flatware, showing still more
facets of the classically trained artist whose
imagination knew no bounds.
Items on display were selected by longtime
Dali curator Joan Kropf who has overseen the
collection since its earliest days in Beachwood,
Ohio. It was assembled by Clevelanders A.
Reynolds Morse and his wife Eleanor. Now the
second largest collection of Dali works outside
of Spain, the collection was moved to St.
Petersburg in 1980 and will be moved again
later this year when the new Dali Museum on
the bayfront is completed.
While the present museum has worked as a
fine showcase for the collection, especially
since its 1989 expansion, the new museum
building is the first building specifically
designed to hold and protect the collection
even in a category 5 hurricane. Located south
of the Mahaffey Theatre and designed by Yann
Weymouth of HOK architectural firm, the new
building is already as much of a gem as


Salvador Dalf, The Discovery of America
by Christopher Columbus, 1958-59
Oil on canvas, in the collection of the
Salvador Dalf Museum, St. Petersburg

anything in the current gem show. It will open
Jan. 11, 2011.
Until October or November, see the
collection that is "beyond real" at 1000 Third St.
S, St. Petersburg, FL 33701. It is open daily
from 10 a.m. to 5:30, Sunday from noon to
5:30 p.m. and on Thursday, remains open until
8:30 p.m. For information, visit www.thedali.org

SI see what's playing in area I



Wond r es is funderful



'Wonderettes' is 'funderful'


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
With shows like "The marvelous
Wonderettes," Sarasota's
Golden Apple Dinner Theatre
should continue to be the longest
running dinner theater in the country for
another 39 years.
"It's My Party and I'll Cry if I Want To,"
sang Kyle Ennis Turoff as Betty Jean
and it was Kyle's party, that is,
especially when she super-sized the last
note of that song, holding it longer than
humanly possible. She also plays


harmonica and blows bubbles but mostly
she is always in character and what a
character! She misses no chance to
embellish and polish Betty Jean. "The
Marvelous Wonderettes" is a show made
for Turoff and her fellow cast members:
Samantha Barrett as Suzy, Sarah
Farnam as Missy and Heather Kopp as
Cindy Lou. Suzy is never without her
chewing gum, sticking it to the micro-
phone for a song and then popping it
back in her mouth. Missy is a bit of a
nerd, which makes it all the funnier
when she falls for "Mr. Lee" and Cindy


Lou is sort of the class shrew despite
being Betty Jean's best friend.
Director Larry Raben made the most
of the talented cast, which was backed
up by musicians John Visser (conduc-
tor), Don Sturrock, John Januszewski
and Tony Rizzo.
Act one is the girls' senior prom in
1958 and all four are vying for the
crown. Act two is the girls' senior prom
10 years later. The song list includes the
Bobby Darin hit, "Dream Lover," "It's My
Party," "Leader of the Pack," "Mr. Sand-
man" "Sugartime," "All I Have to Do is

Dream" and so many others hits of the
late 50s and the 60s.
"The marvelous Wonderettes" plays
through Feb. 21 at Golden Apple Dinner
Theatre, 25 N. Pineapple Ave. For
tickets, including lunch or dinner,
depending on showtime, call the box
office at 941-366-5454, toll-free at 800-

Sarasota Ballet premiers 'Boutique'


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Sarasota Ballet's season contin-
ues with Peter Darrell's "Othello"
and the American premier of
Matthew Bourne's "Boutique" Jan. 29-
31. "Boutique" premiered in London in
1995 just prior to the premier of his
all-male "Swan Lake" which garnered
rave reviews according to a release


from Sarasota Ballet of Florida.
"Othello" was choreographed to
music by Liszt.
Set in 1960's Carnaby Street,
"Boutique" features all the color of
Carnaby Street plus mannequins that
come to life.
"We feel quite fortunate to have such
a close working relationship with
Matthew Bourne," said Sarasota Ballet


director lain Webb in the same
release. "This will now be the third of
his works that Matthew has graciously
provided us to present since we were
honored to be the first company in the
world to add a Bourne production to
our repertoire with "The Infernal
Gallop."
This is billed as family entertainment.
The ballet will be performed on the


Mertz stage at the FSU Center for the
Performing Arts, 5555 North Tamiami
Trail, Sarasota.
There will be evening performances
at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and
matinees at 2 p.m. Saturday and
Sunday.
For tickets, call 941-351-8000, ext. 4
or visit www.sarasotaballet.org. For
information, call 941-359-0099.


'The Last Five Years' is multi-faceted


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
ears pass and so
does a relationship
in "The Last Five
Years," by Jason
Robert Brown.
Newly opened in the
Historic Asolo Theater,
this Asolo Repertory
Company musical
production is smartly
directed by the company'-
artistic director, Michael Donald
Edwards and further embellished by
Jeffrey W. Dean's paneled set, embell-
ished with the projected images


designed by Aaron Rhyne.
Real-life husband and
wi.le, Kris Danford and
........... Sam Osheroff
sentimentally relate
a i the five-year
marriage of Cathy
i rel i and Jamie totally
e in song as images
* relating to incre-
mental stages of
heir partnership fill
h.e stage behind them.
The story begins with
Cathy who is hurting. It is the fifth year
of their relationship and Jamie is gone.
Scenes of a New York City brownstone,


an empty apartment and of a happy
couple in earlier days set the scene.
Her song, "Still Hurting," is sad.
His song is not.
As those first pictures fade, she
leaves the stage. When Jamie appears,
the mood is totally different for it is five
years earlier and the relationship is just
beginning. We learn that he is Jewish
and she is not as he belts out one of
the most fun songs in the show, "Shiksa
Goddess," and a hint at what might
have gone wrong since the night of
their first date.
There is a magical quality to the story
telling and also to the presentation
which weaves the total story together


via glimpses into the past and the tiny
things that happened, which added up
to a bigger result. In the end, he is the
sad one for it is five years later and he
is at the end of the relationship as
Cathy arrives at the beginning.
These two earned kudos for their
performances in "Searching for Eden."
In "Five Years," they reveal even more of
their considerable talents.
The Historic Asolo Theater is at 5401
Bay Shore Road, Sarasota, inside the
visitor center of the John and Mabel
Ringling Museum of Art. For tickets, call
the Asolo Repertory Company box
office at 941-351-8000 or toll-free at

The American

Boychoir in concert


PROVIDED BY THE ENGLEWOOD UNITED
METHODIST CHURCH
The American Boychoir, regarded as
our country's premier concert boys'
choir and one of the finest in the
world, will perform at 4 p.m. Saturday in
the Englewood United Methodist
Church Sanctuary, 700 E. Dearborn St.,
Englewood.
Immediately following the concert,
interested boys may audition on the spot
for The Boychoir.
Conducted by the distinguished
Fernando Malvar-Ruiz, this highly
acclaimed ensemble of boys in grades 4-8
dazzles audiences with a unique blend of
musical sophistication, virtuosity, and
effervescent spirit. The boys from across
the country and around the world reflect
the ethnic, religious, and cultural diversity
of our nation. They pursue a rigorous
musical and academic curriculum at The
American Boychoir School, the only non-
sectarian boys' choir school in the U.S.
The School was founded in Columbus,
Ohio in 1937; and has been located in
Princeton, New Jersey since 1950.
Fernando Malvar-Ruiz was appointed
Music Director of The American Boychoir
in July 2004. He received his bachelor's
degrees from the Real Conservatorio
Superior De MOsica in Madrid, Spain, and
attended the Kodaly Institute in Hungary.
He earned a master's degree in choral
conducting from Ohio State University;
and is currently pursuing a doctoral
degree in musical arts from the University
of Illinois. In 2005, he was artistic director
and guest conductor for the World
Children's Choir Festival in Hong Kong. A


widely sought after guest conductor,
lecturer, and clinician, Director Malvar-Ruiz
is recognized as an expert in the adoles-
cent male evolving voice.
In addition to an active national and
international touring schedule, The
American Boychoir performs regularly with
such world-class ensembles as the New
York Philharmonic, the Boston Symphony,
and the Philadelphia Orchestras. The
choir has also performed with such noted
artists as soprano Jessye Norman,
vocalist and conductor Bobby McFerrin,
and jazz musician Wynton Marsalis. It
appeared at Carnegie Hall with former
Beatle Sir Paul McCartney. Extensive
radio and television appearances have
included one with Beyonc6 Knowles at the
77th Annual Academy Awards Ceremony.
Performing on over 45 commercial
recordings, The Boychoir achieved Gold
Record status for one made with the
Trans-Siberian Orchestra and
Michael W. Smith.
This concert will be a joyful and memo-
rable treat for the whole family. The 2010
Winter Tour musical repertoire is as diverse
and dynamic as the boys themselves.
Included are selections from European
composers such as Victoria, Desprez,
SchOtz, Brahms, and Faur6; American
composers George Gershwin and Randall
Thompson; and Venezuelan, Brazilian,
Korean, and Japanese composers.
The $10 tickets are available at the
Englewood United Methodist Church
office, in Fellowship Hall after each
worship service, or as available at the
door.
Call 474-5588 weekdays for information.

Alvin and the Chipmunks:
The Squeakquel (G) B
Now in the care of Dave Seville's
nephew (Zachary Levi), Alvin, Simon

music stardom and return to school.
Almost immediately, the tiny tunesmiths
are given the giant task of saving their

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

after a decade of divorce-an amicable

for their son's college graduation, things
start to get complicated. An innocent
meal together turns into the unimagin-
able-an affair. With Jake remarried to
the much younger Agness (Lake Bell),
Jane is now, of all things, the other
woman. Caught in the middle of their
renewed romance is Adam (Martin), an
architect hired to remodel Jane's
kitchen. Healing from a divorce of his
own, Adam starts to fall for Jane, but
soon realizes he's become part of a

along with stick-to-your-ribs home cooking.


r'4 Taty tidbits about :
plares to -,Aaround the area._


The classic cheeseburger and fries are freshly prepared with Fish and chips are popular, especially since the chips
nothing prefab, are homemade.


EJ welcomes you


to EJ's Frosted Mug


BY SHARE DERRICKSON
SUN CORRESPONDENT
It harkens back to the days when
times were simpler when the Fonz
was the king of cool, and poodle
skirts ruled. EJ, the groovy gator
mascot of the eatery and pub, will
soon rule the roost on the sign of the
El Jobean family eatery.
The restaurant, Susan Lussenden,
one of the owners at J's Frosted Mug,
said, will soon undergo a sign change.
"We are known as J's Frosted Mug
with the emphasis on Frosty Mug.
Soon, the sign will change giving EJ
top billing in big letters. "EJ got his
name from El Jobean, and we want to
reflect that that we are proud to be
in El Jobean," she said, "and we are
much more than a 'frosty mug."'
The retro restaurant is one of the
unique places where one can get a
juicy hamburger any day of the week
to a full Thanksgiving-style turkey
dinner every Sunday. The food,
Lussenden said, is completely pre-
pared fresh homemade right down to
the potato chips. No corners are cut
and nothing is prefab just like the
days before the TV dinner.
"We are affordable, especially for


what you get," she said. The restaurant
has daily lunch specials that are less
than $5 and all meals, she said, are
hardy.
The cool-cat alligator is at home
inside the restaurant that is open
seven days a week for breakfast,
lunch, and dinner. Lussenden, who
owns the restaurant with her husband
Brian, was formerly a chef at a country
club in Michigan, and she takes great
pride in that her food is homemade
like grandma used to make.
For her, it is a long day, starting at
6:30 in the morning as she prepares
for the breakfast crowd, and not
leaving most nights until after 10 p.m.
"I love this business," she said happy
she can give others a good meal
in a fun atmosphere and use her
culinary skills.
"We are really known for our pizza,"
she said, adding those from up north
love the snappy-skin chili dogs.
The restaurant also has lighter and
healthier meals like a variety of
salads and entries that are grilled
and not fried.
And while the menu is a wonderland
of food, the decor is equally engaging.
The walls are a feast for the eyes as

every nook and cranny is has memora-
bilia from the 1940s to the early 1970s
- from Hula Hoops to Elvis to
Howdy Doody.
The restaurant has family-style
dining available at tables and booths,
and an old-fashioned counter where
one can enjoy a cup of coffee and a
homemade dessert. In the back, there
is a full-service bar and another dining
area and a patio for outdoor dining. It
restaurant is suitable for the cozy


dinner right down to the social func-
tions and celebrations as well as a
place to meet friends for live music
Friday and Saturday evenings. "It's

Ramos wins design award


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Seated in the audience of the Mertz
Theatre, before the opening scene
of Asolo Repertory Company's "The
Life of Galileo," it seems as though the set
is missing.
Not only is it not missing, but it and the
show's costumes were quite extraordinary,
especially the papal garb worn by Douglas
Jones in one second act scene.
It was such attention to detail that
earned the "Galileo" set and costumer
designer Clint Ramos an award in
costume design from the Henry Hewes
Design Awards Committee at its 45th


annual awards presentation.
Ramos' award was specifically for his
work on "Beware Women Beware" at the
Red Bull Theater. He was among 60
artists nominated for work on 46 produc-
tions during last year's New York City
theater season.
The Hewes Awards are for work on and
off Broadway and all are for work originat-
ed in United States' productions. The
Hewes committee makes the initial
nominations which are named in honor of
former theater critic Henry Hewes who
initiated the awards. He passed away in
2006 after many years as a board
member of the American Theatre Wing.

Cleveland-based rockers

winter in Southwest Florida


BY JOHN HACKWORTH
MANAGING EDITOR
Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis,
Marilyn Monroe, Ronnie Spector
and Patsy Cline are coming back
to The M Club and Portofino this week.
Well, not really. But Eddie and the
Edsels, a four-piece show band based
in Cleveland, Ohio, will bring those
characters to life every night they
perform.
And, thanks to a Floridian who caught
the band's act in Cleveland, they are
bringing their '50s and '60s music to
Southwest Florida every winter.
"Someone from Florida saw us and
said we should come down here and
play in the winter," Bill said. "I told them
to find us a gig and we would."
It wasn't long after that that Morris,
his two brothers and their saxophone-
playing female sidekick made North
Port their winter headquarters.
"We play here about four months

every year and we love it," Bill said. "We
have played six nights a week for 30
years in Cleveland but if we have a
night off in Florida, that's okay. We can
go to the dirt-track races or something
else. Having a day off is not bad."
The group features Bill on lead guitar,
brother Dan on keyboards and brother
Tristan on drums a $10,000 set of
Rolands that Bill says defies people not
to get up and dance. Nancy Sias, who
portrays everyone from Patsy Cline to
Marilyn Monroe, rounds out the band
with her vocals and saxophone.
Their play list ranges from Stevie Ray
Vaughan to Chuck Berry and all four
are versatile and talented musicians.
The group plays tonight on the deck
at Portofino in Charlotte Harbor;
Saturday at the new M Club, at the
House of Prime in Murdock; Sunday at
Holiday Park in North Port and for a
two-week run starting Feb. 14 at T.J.
Carney's, 231 W. Venice Ave., Venice.
