Council withholds support for school tax


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Venice City Council will not
adopt a resolution this year in
support of continuing the
Sarasota County supplemental
school tax.
A referendum, to be held
March 16, asks voters if they
wish to continue the current 1
mill school tax to supplement
the school budget for another
four years through 2014.
On Tuesday council voted
4-2 to table a draft resolution
that specifically supports the
school tax, effectively killing
the resolution.
Voting in favor were Sue
Lang, Jim Bennett, Kit McKeon
and Emilio Carlesimo. John
Moore was absent. Voting


Martin Zavodnyik Bennett Carlesimo


against were Mayor Ed Martin
and Ernie Zavodnyik.
Instead, council approved
by voice vote a statement
acknowledging its strong sup-
port in general for education,
and encouraging residents to
vote in the referendum.
To a person, all council
members said they personally
support extending the tax.
Those against the resolution


said it was not their place to
tell citizens how to vote on this
issue under such economic
uncertainty.
Rationale
Bennett, who taught busi-
ness courses at the college
level and online, said he didn't
believe it's appropriate to
lobby citizens.
Lobbying on behalf of citi-


Lang


McKeon


zens is one thing, he said, "lob-
bying them to try to get them
to vote a certain way ... that is
an entirely different thing,"
Bennett said. "I think we
should stay out of it and let the
voters vote."
'As a policy level discus-
sion," said McKeon, "I find
myself in agreement with Mr.
Bennett. I personally support
education. I have consistently


throughout my life, but I am
concerned that we are lobby-
ing citizens."
"I have always voted for
education and intend to do so
again," said Carlesimo. "I see it
(the resolution) as an intru-
sion. It's their choice to make.
They have their own priorities.
Is it good for the community?
Sure it is. Do we need a few
leaders to get out front and say
this is good? Yes. (However) I
would not support the resolu-
tion."
"No one is against educa-
tion," said Lang. "'At this time in
our economy the taxpayers
have to make a decision based
on their own comfort level. I
am comfortable continuing to

Thousands of parcels


added to floodzone


Remembering a hero


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Turns out that an earlier
projection that "hundreds if
not thousands" of parcels of
land in the greater Venice area
have been added to Federal
Emergency Management Agen-
cy floodplain maps was an
underexageration.
Official numbers released
Tuesday show more than 6,500
additional parcels of land will
fall into three watersheds that
encompass the city of Venice
and the SouthVenice area.
SouthWest Florida Water
Management District officials
gave Venice City Council an
update of their progress this
week in updating floodplain
maps, saying that many
homeowners and commercial
business owners are still
unaware they are about to be
recategorized as located in a
flood zone.
Mark Hammond, director
of the Resource Projects De-
partment for SWFWMD, said
25,000 parcels are impacted in
three watersheds in the area,
although many of those have
only a small portion of the par-
cel considered in a flood zone.
Parcels where the flood zone
touches the dwelling would


trigger new flood insurance
coverage requirements.
Of the 25,000 parcels, 1,000
will fall out of a flood zone des-
ignation due to redrawn maps,
he said, while 6,500 parcels fall
into a floodzone.
Implications
The implication is huge, say
authorities. For thousands of
property owners it will mean
purchasing expensive flood
insurance.
For others, it could mean
not only higher insurance
rates, but a double whammy
for those who want to make
home improvements.
Being in a floodplain kicks
in the "50 percent rule,"
acknowledged City Engineer
Kathleen Weeden. That would
require property owners con-
templating renovations that
value more than half of the
home to come into full com-
pliance with the city building
code or under Federal Emerg-
ency Management Agency
regulations.
Consider this scenario.

floodzone? Once the new
maps are adopted, if your
home building has accumulat-

Jacaranda West residents James and Rita Spino and family speak to neighbors and veterans who gath-
ered Sunday at the edge of a lake on Sklar Drive East to plant a tree in their son's honor. Staff Sgt.
Ronald J. Spino, who was killed in action in Afghanistan on Dec. 29, reportedly came under fire at the
gate of a military base in Bala Morghab, Afghanistan. His unit, the 274th Forward Surgical Airborne
Team, 44th Medical Command, in Fort Bragg, N.C., had been deployed to Bala Morghab, where he
served as the chief officer for the intensive care unit. He was on his third tour of duty and was expected
home in February. James Spino called his son a hero. Rita Spino wanted those in attendance to know
her son was shot by a person lying in the road whom he bent over to help.

Forum focuses on economic recovery


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

The need for a diversi-
fied economy with a
focus on the areas of
aging, arts and innova-
tion, along with a govern-
ment that provides a wel-
coming environment for
business, was the mes-
sage government, educa-
tion and economic devel-
opment leaders sent out
to Sarasota County citi-
zens last week.
The gathering of eight
forum panelists and
other experts in the stu-
dio discussed possible
economic recovery plans
in Tuesday's community
forum, "From Recession
to Recovery." The after-
noon forum was shown
on Sarasota County
Access TV which is car-
ried on Comcast 19 and
Verizon 32. It also was
streamed on the county's
Web site.
The show, which also
featured questions via e-
mail from the public,
ended with the question:
If given a no-strings grant
of $100 million, where
would you put it?
Earlier in the program,
panel members had
mentioned the need for a
sound stage to encour-
age the film industry to
locate projects in Sara-
sota County. That sound
stage (which also could


be used by Ringling
College film students),
infrastructure projects,
youth sports support
and venture funds to
supply seed money for
new-idea businesses were
those areas most rec-
ommended for mone-
tary support by panel
members.
The question allowed
for a succinct end to a
show that saw partici-
pants integrate their
beliefs with others. For
instance, Sarasota Coun-
ty Commissioner Nora
Patterson, who is on a
number of transporta-
tion boards and chairs
the Tourist Development
Council, stressed sup-
port for transportation
systems and local arts in
her remarks.
Larry Thompson, pres-
ident of Ringling College
of Art and Design, said
the five-year strategic
plan proposed by the
Economic Development
Council of Sarasota
County could serve as a
base for new types of
business, including those
concentrating on design
and innovation.
Temptation
Panelist Kathy Sal-
vador, representing Flor-
ida Power & Light, said
the utility feels that
Florida can become a
hub for green energy


Foreclosures hit


two-year low


industries. She said state
legislation two years
ago that supported
solar energy facilities
has created about 1,500
positions in direct con-
struction jobs and 5,000
indirect jobs.
Salvador said that now
there is a need to support
renewable energy com-
panies in the state.
Participants agreed
on a number of com-


mon goals, the most
important being that
when the economy
improves, all parties
need to resist the temp-
tation to allow the con-
struction and tourism
industries to reclaim
their dominance in the
county.
Led by County Com-
mission Chair Joe Bar-
betta, who was joined by
homebuilder Pat Neal,


the panel agreed Sarasota
County needs to tell
national and interna-
tional communities that
the county is business
friendly.
Don Grimes, a spe-
cialist in economic fore-
casting and regional
economic development,
talked of the fierce com-
petition for new busi-
ness from other states.
"We're competing with


every other county in
the nation," Grimes
said, adding that they're
all trying to promote
economic development
and job creation.
"Boomers aren't com-
ing here by default any
more," Barbetta said.
"You have to be 'That
Great Place.'"

Foreclosures started
the decade on a high note,
with monthly filings
reaching their lowest mark
in more than two years.
January marks the
third consecutive month
foreclosures have fallen
from the previous month's
totals. Foreclosures are
now down in the year-
over-year comparison for
10 straight months.
Sarasota saw initial
foreclosures filings fall 20
percent from December,
with 595 delinquencies
recorded last month.
January's post was a 23
percent decrease from
the same time a year ago,
according to the Sarasota
clerk's office.
In late January, Realty-
Trac listed the Sarasota-
Bradenton-Venice area
No. 17 on its list of the top
20 national foreclosure


rates of 2009, with 5.26
percent of all area homes
in delinquency.
Local real estate agents
said declining foreclo-
sures are essential for the
area's housing market to
fully recover.
Currently, short sales
and delinquent listings
are pulling down prices
of traditional sales, and
reduced foreclosures will
fuel stabilization, said
Jake Miller, real estate
agent and broker with
Gulf Realty & Associates
Inc. on Manasota Key.
The good news is first-
time buyers continue to
purchase these foreclo-
sures, helping reduce
inventories, he said.
"It could be worse, but
it could also be a lot bet-
ter," Miller said. "I think
we're starting to stabilize
some."

Sarasota County's Foreclosure Recovery
Assistance Network program.
The Web site, at www.scgov.net/homehelp, pro-
vides county residents with a place where they can
research options to help them avoid losing their
homes in foreclosure. The site contains information
about how to avoid foreclosure, what steps to take
during foreclosure and sources of help for people
who must leave their homes.
There also are resource lists for credit counsel-
ing, federal, state and local agencies, lender con-
tacts, information for renters and tips on avoiding
foreclosure. The site will be updated with new infor-
mation and resources as they become available.

TAX from Page 1A

pay this tax. Others may-
be aren't comfortable.
There isn't a right or
wrong answer here. No
one wants a school sys-
tem that isn't adequately
funded. The taxpayers are
going to have to decide -
to look into their hearts as
well as their wallets. It's
very tough out there in the
economy. I'm in favor of
encouraging (people) to
vote, but not in favor of a
resolution on this matter."
Mayor Martin earlier
penned what amounted
to a position paper on his
Web site, Insidevenice
florida.com, in support
of the tax prior to coun-
cil's vote Tuesday.
"I do not ordinarily talk
before council has had a
chance to talk, and don't
usually propose resolu-
tions, (but) this is impor-
tant to us," Martin said. 'As
I travel and talk to people
they want to know what
kind of school, what kind
of values, do we have. Do
they value education or
cultural achievement?
That's what companies
looking to do business in
our area want to know
about. They are looking for
"ready-to-work" (school)
programs ... people who
have skills. I thought it was
perhaps a good ... lead
into this issue. I happen to
think it's right. I wouldn't
want to be here because it
was politically expedient."
Zavodnyik invoked a
quote from President
Harry Truman. "If you
can't stand the heat, get
out of the kitchen," he
said.


"One of the things that
made this country great
was our public schools. It
is a hallmark in American
civilization. We owe
something to our chil-
dren, grandchildren and
great-grandchildren. One
of the points that has been
made is seniors, like my-
self... that all we are inter-
ested in is ourselves. That
we're not interested in the
future of our young peo-
ple. Let's prove that
wrong, and I will use the
word 'sacrifice,' here. Let's
pass (the referendum). We
will all benefit from it."

Reactions for
Venice High School
Principal Candace Mill-
ington said she wasn't
discouraged by the vote.
The individual com-
ments each council
member made in sup-
port of education gener-
ally and the tax extension
in particular, she said,
"sends a great message."
She outlined signifi-
cant progress made by
the high school over the
last four years that she
directly attributed to ref-
erendum dollars. A grad-
uation rate that has risen
from 68 percent to 98
percent, improving read-
ing scores and the 1,200
students this year who
enrolled in college credit
courses "speak well of
our teachers, the stu-
dents and their pro-
gress," Millington said.
John Ryan, president
and CEO of the Venice
Area Chamber of Com-
merce said he wasn't sur-
prised by the vote.
Ryan and a number of


chamber members testi-
fied in support of the reso-
lution and the school tax.
"We recognize this is
one of those areas where
we are going out a little
bit on a limb," Ryan said.
"We still believe it is the
right thing to do. We have
to make those tough
choices. Our businesses,
I think, are willing to pay
that extra dime because
it's important to them."

... and against
Gary Budway, presi-
dent of the Venice Tax-
payers League, led the
opposition and was the
first to suggest council
table the issue.
"It's another cow pie
you are stepping into,"
Budway said.
He said the struggling
economy is taking its toll
on retirees with fixed
incomes who need tax
relief, not a tax extension.
"The VTL has passed a
resolution to reject the
extension of this tax,
which was suppose to be a
one-time vote back in
2002," Budway said. "The
city of Venice will be
increasing utility rates
possibly by 6 percent. The
state of Florida has already
increased the costs of your
vehicle (license) plates,
drivers license, trailer
plates and boat registra-
tion fees. Social Security
has already stated no
increases for the next two
years for retirees, (and no)
increases in Medicare
costs including deduct-
ibles and co-pays. Florida
Light & Power was just
granted a rate increase,
and your home and flood


insurance rates are in-
creasing. Investments, if
you are lucky enough to
have them, are paying a
fraction of what they did.
In some cases CDs and
money market funds pay
less then one percent. A
simple question you
should ask yourself (is)
how will my income cover
expenses in the next four
years with all the increases
in costs and with a declin-
ing income?" Budway said.
Budway called the tax
another questionable pay
raise at a time when gov-
ernment employees
should come under the
same belt tightening mea-
sures as private industry.
'A lot of people are
going to vote no," said res-
ident Mike Gelormino.
"You are fooling your-
selves if you think you are
going to (pass it). Ano vote
is coming. Pitty the peo-
ple. Let's get it off the back
of the citizens of Venice."

Legal authority
Recently a number of
people on the city server
questioned whether city
council had legal author-
ity to pass a resolution in
support of the tax. City
Attorney Bob Anderson
assured council mem-
bers they have the right
to express their views.
City council approved
the exact same resolu-
tion in 2002. The resolu-
tion states the extra
money is needed be-
cause "without addition-
al revenue for operating
expenses, many excellent
programs that exceed
minimum state require-
ments will be cut, class

vation permits over the

the assessed value of
your home, you would
now potentially have to
also raise the dwelling
another foot or so off the
ground to come into
FEMA compliance, or
you might not be allowed
to rebuild at all.


It's onerous enough
that council members
said they plan to revisit
the "50 percent rule" and
other city ordinances
when FEMA gets closer
to adopting its new
floodplain maps. That
could take another two
years, but property own-
ers should be aware now
of whether they live in a
floodzone, officials say, if


they want to have any
input into the redrawing
of FEMA maps.

Updated
The maps impact the
Venice Island Watershed,
Roberts Bay Watershed
and Alligator Creek Wat-
ershed. Maps have yet to
be released for the North
Venice area encompas-
sing the Venetian Golf &


River Club.
The maps are sched-
uled to be adopted May
31, followed by a local
and federal review peri-
od. Officials hope all ap-
peals will be satisfied and
maps adopted by June
16, 2011, at which time
new insurance require-
ments will take effect.

size will increase, and
efforts to recruit and retain
high quality teachers will
be hindered."
Previous referendum
monies largely went to
increase teacher salaries,
which are the highest in
the state. The average
teacher salary in Florida,
however, is below the na-


tional average.
Of the $210.4 million in
additional funding from
millage increases over the
last four years, more than
90 percent has been allo-
cated to some form of
teacher pay or teacher pay
incentive program.

POLICE BEAT


Pregnant and battered
A witness to a woman being dragged
down the street by a man called the
Sarasota County Sheriff's Office Satur-
day, according to a SCSO report.
When the deputy arrived, he saw the
victim crying and walking away from
the address in the 9-1-1 call. The victim
said she had a fight with her boyfriend
after breaking up with him. She said
there was no physical altercation her
boyfriend was pulling at her arm to get
her back into the house.
The boyfriend told the deputy basi-
cally the same story.
Witnesses, however, had another
story to tell.
They said loud screaming awoke
them and when they looked outside
they saw the boyfriend grabbing the
victim, hitting her and pulling her
toward the house by wrapping his arms
around her neck and pulling her back-
ward. Witnesses said he was screaming
and swearing at her.
The boyfriend admitted using 80 mg
oxycontin, 30 mg roxycodone and two
Xanax pills prior to the incident.
The victim, who is pregnant with her
boyfriend's child, did not want to press
charges. She said she just wanted to go
home.
Lucas Robert Grant, 19, 5100 block
Albion Road, Venice, was arrested and
charged with aggravated domestic bat-
tery on a pregnant woman. His bond is
$50,000.
Pummeled
A deputy was called to an incident
between two men in the 1300 block of
Falcon Road, Venice, according to a
Sarasota County Sheriff's Office report.
Witnesses said the victim was mov-
ing his belongings from the garage
when Francisco A. Coffigny grabbed
him around the neck, punched him
several times in the face and forced him
to the ground.
Coffigny admitted grabbing the vic-
tim, but he said the victim hit him first.
Coffigny, 43, was arrested and
charged with battery (touch or strike).
His bond was $120.
Citrus diet
A Venice Police Department officer
stopped a green Dodge pickup truck
being driven with its left front tire
shredded, according to a report.
The driver, Joseph Anthony Cook,
30, 300 block Myrtle Ave., Nokomis,
said the previous night he had backed


his truck into a ditch and popped the
tire and was driving it to the tire shop to
be replaced.
When the officer told him it was 2:30
a.m., Cook said he thought it was 6:30 a.m.
Cook agreed to take a field sobriety
test but couldn't complete any of the
tasks and was arrested and charged
with DUI (third violation within 10
years) and tampering with or fabricat-
ing physical evidence. His bond is
$11,000.
The latter charge arose because
when Cook was taken to jail, he was
asked to provide a urine sample. After
45 minutes he couldn't produce enough
urine, so he filled the specimen cup with
tap water and handed it to the officer.
When the officer asked Cook why
the specimen was clear and cold, he
said he was on a citrus diet that made
his urine look like that. When the officer
told Cook he saw him fill the cup with
water and asked him why he would do
that knowing that he was falsifying evi-
dence, Cook apologized and said he
would try again to fill the cup with
urine.
Cop fingered
Neighbors called 9-1-1 when they
heard a woman banging on windows
and doors trying to get inside her apart-
ment, according to a Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office report.
The responding deputy found the
victim outside the apartment crying
and visibly shaken. She said she had
been locked out of her apartment by
her boyfriend.
The deputy knocked on the door
and identified himself as law enforce-
ment, but no one answered. The
deputy saw a man sitting on the sofa
and when he knocked on the window
to get the man's attention, Stephen
Alvin Friesz raised his middle finger at
the deputy.
After the deputy went to another
window where he had a better view,
Friesz opened the front door.
Friesz was highly intoxicated when
the deputy questioned him. He admit-
ted he had grabbed the victim's arm
and pulled her out of the apartment,
but he wouldn't answer any other ques-
tions.
The neighbor said Friesz opened the
door, hit the victim and threw her
down. He grabbed her and banged her
head on the door, then dragged her
back outside the apartment, locking
her out again.


The victim was taken to Venice
Regional Medical Center complaining of
neck and back injuries and had visible
red marks on her left arm and knees.
Deputies took domestic violence paper-
work to her at the hospital, but she was
unable to sign for it because she was
strapped to a back board.
Friesz, 53, 200 block Silver Spray
Lane, Nokomis, was arrested and
charged with domestic battery. He re-
ceived no bond.

with the company of
great friends, family and
the love of his life, Elsa

Boxxer system beats the others


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Carpet cleaning has been
around for many years, but not
the new technique recently
introduced by Montgomery's
CarpetsPlus ColorTile, 825 E.
Venice Ave.
Owner Vern Montgomery
has been in the business 37
years, but until a few months
ago had not encountered the
Boxxer 421, touted as the ulti-
mate concept in 21st century
floor cleaning.
Neil Lambert heads the car-
pet cleaning division with
technician David Goltsch.
They received extensive prod-
uct training, and a company
van was fitted out with state-
of-the-art equipment for
cleaning carpets, tiles, stone
and furniture even duct-
works.
Designed for all domestic
and commercial cleaning pur-
poses, the equipment is part of
a 10-stage program custom
prepared for each job, which
takes around four hours. A
pre-cleaning inspection en-
ables them to identify mildew;
pet, soda and smoke stains;
and other dirt, and the chemi-
cal composition of the carpet.
The vehicle is equipped with
70 environmentally friendly
chemicals. A water softener;
powered heating to 240 de-
grees; the Boxxer 421 equip-
ment, which generates 1,200
pounds per square inch of
pressure; and all the acces-
sories are in the van.
The cleaning process in-
cludes vacuuming to remove
sand, the biggest enemy of any
carpet, and spot-treating
heavily stained areas. Emul-
sifier pre-spraying loosens soil
from the fibers, which are
rake-agitated before the tech-
nician uses a special high-
pressure wand. That's followed
by a rotating spray head on a

Technician David Goltsch shows off Montgomery's Boxxer 421 high-
powered, five-headed rotary dirt extractor.


vacuum-style machine that has
an extractor with five cleaning
heads that shake, scrub and
vacuum the carpet fibers.
Customers can then protect
and extend the longevity of
their carpets by having the
original soil and stain protec-
tor re-applied with automatic
spraying and raking. A heavy
commercial floor fan pulling
air from above to blow directly
into the carpet accelerates the
drying process to complete the
program. Montgomery recom-
mends that customers avoid
walking on the barely damp
carpet for two hours.
The convenience of the pro-


gram is that every item used
throughout the process is con-
tained in the service van.
A family business, Mont-
gomery's began in Lawrence-
burg, Ind., where Vern had two
carpet stores and was a volun-
teer fireman. Moving to Venice
25 years ago he managed car-
pet stores for 13 years before
opening his first store, on
Venice Avenue, in 1998.
Mark is vice president and
sales manager; Mike is vice
president and installation
manager; Missy is company
secretary; and Beverly, his wife,
is the treasurer.

For managed-care givers,

tasks can be tough


BY DANA SANCHEZ
STAFF WRITER

In her job as a geriatric-care
manager, Gail Inglis has been
asked to do some heartbreak-
ing things.
Like taking away the car
keys of elderly drivers, finding
a new home for a beloved dog
when its owner can't care for it
anymore or arranging for a
patient to move into an assist-
ed-living facility.
When out-of-state clients
hire Gail to take care of elderly
parents living in Englewood,
Venice and North Port, some-
times it's not easy.
"Honestly, I pray about it a
lot," she said. "That's where I get
my strength. When you take
away a car, you're taking away a
person's independence."
Gail owns Custom Care
Management in Venice and is
one of about 3,000 profession-
al geriatric-care managers cer-
tified in the United States.
Her husband, Bob Inglis, is
her office manager and keeps
the books for a home-based
business that has Gail on call
24/7.
A registered nurse, she has
worked with the elderly for
more than 30 years and was a
nurse's aide and clinical super-
visor for a home health-care
agency before starting a pri-
vate practice.
She manages care for clients
who can't be around to help
parents with doctor appoint-
ments and medication, mak-
ing sure they get to doctors'
offices, follow doctors' orders
and take their medicine.
Her job is threefold: to advo-
cate for her patients in legal
and social matters, manage
their health care and be their
case manager.
One patient calls in her
insulin level every night, and if

living facility two years ago.
The name change also affected
River Oaks in Englewood and
several other of the 309
Emeritus communities in 36
states.
Opened in 1926 as the Hotel
Venice with 100 rooms, the
building was acquired by the
Kentucky Military Institute in
1932, becoming the winter
quarters for staff and students
for 40 years.
Thirty years ago it was
restored and became an assist-
ed-living facility.
Emeritus at Venice features


78 apartments, provides three
restaurant-style meals daily
and has a library and fitness
center. Call 485-2404.
Name change
"Cafe Island" will be the
new name for the Kingfish
Grill, 625 South Tamiami Trail
at the New Verandah Inn, said
owner Eva Seres.
Menu changes are under
consideration for the restau-
rant, which opens daily at 7:30
a.m. for breakfast and lunch,
with dinners offered Wednes-
day through Saturday.
From Hungary, Seres work-
ed in Budapest restaurants

goes to the woman's home and
gives her a shot.
Sometimes, the job gets
tricky. Gail recently had to take
a dog away from an Alz-
heimer's patient who could no
longer care for it.
"The dog was messing the
house and the patient was trip-
ping over it," Bob said. "The
man hates my wife and my
wife was in tears over it, but he
doesn't hate his son who
ordered it. That's her job: to
take the flak."
If the car needs to be taken
away, Gail has handled that
difficult task often and her
patients sometimes thank her
for it, Bob said.
One task involves placing
patients in facilities.
She has done 24-hour in-
home care for people who
wanted to die at home.
The only insurance plans
that pay for care management
right now are some long-term-
care insurance plans.
Gail's hourly rate is around
$90. She has 10 clients and is
thinking about hiring employ-
ees to help in the business.
For his part, Bob runs er-
rands and meets with contrac-
tors for home improvement.
Anybody can claim to be a
care manager, but not every-
one can say they're certified,
Gail said.
"It isn't actually licensing; its
certification," she said. "The
certification itself protects the
client. People should look for a
certification and someone
who belongs to the National
Association of Professional
Geriatric Care Managers. In
belonging to the association,
we have guidelines we're sup-
posed to abide by."

OUR VIEW


You can give blood, if nothing else


It seems just a bit curious the Red
Cross has been blaming the reces-
sion for the critical shortage of
blood in our area.
Instead, we wonder if cloudy days
and cool weather are the real reason?
Shivering people may not be in the
mood to roll up their sleeves and give
blood.
Still, the official suggestion lingers
that the blood shortage is caused by
the recession. Many of us may be out
of work and broke, but we still all have
blood running through our veins.
Walmart parking lots are full of cars
much of the day. Shoppers load carts
and push them through the area's
supermarket lots. There are still peo-
ple standing in line, waiting for ser-
vice at the post office.
Popular restaurants appear to be
busy. Attendance at churches appears
to be normal, based on full parking lots.
It is true some stores have been
shuttered because of the difficult


economy we are experiencing. But
not that many have gone out of busi-
ness.
Yet the number of blood donors has
fallen so dramatically that some offi-
cials are suggesting they will be forced
to turn to national blood stockpile.
Remember, several Florida hospi-
tals are now caring for the victims of
that terrible Haiti earthquake. The
need of those unfortunate people can
be great.
Too often, we see the bright, color-
ful flashing lights of emergency
equipment and the band of yellow
lights on towing company trucks
hauling away vehicles with crumpled
fenders and broken glass. It appears
their has been no recession-based
shortage of intersection and highway
crashes or need for blood.
Despite our difficult economic sit-
uation, people still are hospitalized
for a wide variety of reasons. Some
must undergo surgery. Blood is need-


ed by our hospitals. Could one of
those people in dire need be a friend,
a neighbor, a close family member? Is
there someone you actually know
whose life depends on your willing-
ness to donate?
Our state is filled with compassion-
ate, generous people. If you are able
and willing and want to know where
to go, call (888) 936-6283. Check this
newspaper for the listings of Blood-
mobile stops.
Seasonal swings have always been
an issue. In the summer, when our
snowbirds have driven or flown north
and many locals are seeking cooler
places to vacation, a decline can be
expected. During the major holidays,
many people have other things on
their minds. But in the past donors
usually begin providing a steady sup-
ply of blood early in the new year. For
some reason, not in 2010.
Florida has become a blood-short
state, according to officials. Elsewhere


around the nation the supply is said
to be adequate. With the number of
local donors declining, our blood
banks must pay to have blood ship-
ped in from other states.
Last spring, facing a gradual de-
cline, local blood banks had to ac-
quire blood elsewhere for the first
time in several years.
What can we do? First, make the
need known. Notices can be sent to
parents in the backpacks of school
children. Mothers and fathers should
be willing to give.
Musicians could entertain. A trom-
bone solo could drawing attention to
places where people can donate. So
could a cluster of helium-filled red bal-
loons.
Why not hold neighborhood con-
tests? Neighbor challenging neighbor.
The clergy can encourage the faithful.
If the urgent need is known, Suncoast
residents will respond. Roll up those
sleeves.


Transferring kids


a touchy topic


LANG CAPASSO
PUBLISHER


In a couple of weeks I am
writing a column on how
Americans like a good discus-
sion and debate. Well, lo and
behold, we ain't seen nothing
yet, and it is going to happen
right here.
The Sarasota County School
Board wants to move 100 stu-
dents, over a five-year period,
from Taylor Elementary School
to Englewood Elementary,
about eight miles down the
road. Seems like a pretty easy
deal.
Taylor Elementary School is
bordering on being over-
crowded with 800 students
and 15 portables and soon will
have an enrollment way be-
yond its capacity. Englewood
Elementary is very under-
attended it now has only
about 400 students and could
easily take the overflow from
Taylor Ranch.
This simple move would be
killing two birds with one
stone. Ease the overflow in one
school and it would go a long
way in keeping the doors open
at the other. You see, for years
Englewood Elementary has
had a declining school popula-
tion and for years the rumors
have been flying about its clo-
sure.
Obviously, the parents of
the children and the commu-
nity in general do not want this
to happen. It would say some-
thing about the community to
future citizens and businesses,
and especially affect the par-
ents of the children involved.
Now, let's talk about the
impact on the parents of the
children at Taylor Elementary
School. Listening to the rea-
sons they do not want their
children moved, it is a carbon
copy of the impacts for Engle-
wood Elementary: hardship
on parents, business impact,
how people moved here


because of schools, and new
surroundings for the children.
When you are talking about
children, especially young
ones, you are stepping onto a
landmine, and I do not envy
the school board, which ulti-
mately must make the final
decision. It does appear to be
easier to move 20 children a
year for five years than close
down a school and move 400.
On the other hand, there are
two other elementary schools
in Englewood that are in
Charlotte County, and I am
sure an interlocal agreement
could be reached to facilitate a
move to them.
In both cases the parents do
not want their children moved,
though the schools are about
eight miles apart. In both cases
it does not seem to be so much
an education issue as a per-
ception that in the move a
inferior education might be
involved. As one parent in
Venice said, "There is no way
my children are going to an
Englewood school; there is a
big difference in education."
Another said he doesn't even
have children yet but when he
does he doesn't not want them
going to an "Englewood school."
I am sure if you asked an
Englewood parent you would
get essentially the same reac-
tion about going to a Charlotte
school.
I do understand the con-
cern. Our Englewood office is
about a football field from the
Englewood school campus
and it is not a bad school. It's
run by the same board as
Taylor Ranch. On the other
hand, I know many teachers
and principals on the Char-
lotte side and they are great
people with true dedication.
So, both sides have their
pluses. As I said, when you are
dealing with children, the
pluses somehow get lost in the
shuffle.
There are no easy solutions
in this, and I give the school
board high marks for present-
ing a good case regardless of
the outcome. Even if a solution
is not reached now at least they
are addressing something that
needs to be addressed. I can
only hope it goes smoothly.
The ball is in all our courts.

odically for this page.

SHOULD THE CIRCUS BRIDGE OPENINGS BE PUT ON A SCHEDULE? CALL 207-1111.


What about land yachts?

Pathetic. Today while I was riding my bicycle along the bicy-
cle path on the waterway approaching the Circus Bridge, I came
upon a sailboat going approximately 3 to 5 miles per hour. When
he was 300 yards away, without a sound of the horn or anything,
the bridge started opening. When the bridge got to its all-the-
way peak, full, wide open, he was still 100 yards away and took
his time. Why did this happen at peak traffic hour 4:38 p.m.?
All the cars were sitting, lined up and wasting fuel for this one lit-
tle boat that was 100 yards away when the thing was wide open.
Why is this happening at peak hours? He did not have to break
stride, accelerate, etc. nothing. On his merry way, inconve-
niencing all those people and wasting all that gas during peak
hours at 4:38. That's a terrible waste. Why do they have a priority
over the people commuting to and from work? That's pathetic.


Keep fighting. I believe city
council should continue to
fight the FAA on its ruling and
make this airport a B-II airport
not a C-II.
People's airport. The Ven-
ice airport should be kept a B-
II. A letter in the Gondolier Sun
by Chris Davis on Jan. 18 pret-
ty well says it all. The airport is
the people's airport, it's not the
special interests' airport and
should be kept low. Even
though I don't live in the city of
Venice, that airport affects
everyone in the area by the
traffic that comes over and the
potential for a real big banger
if it ever happens. So keep it
down, keep it small and every-
one will be happy.
Knew it. Yes, they should
keep fighting for the B-II air-
port. It should remain as it is
and not be enlarged. So many
people agree with that. We
moved here knowing it was a
B-II airport and it needs to be
kept that way.
Sweet and safe. I would
like the airport to stay a B-II
airport because I think it keeps
our town the sweet, little, safe
town that we have. It's a matter
of quality of life. Most every-
one I know does not want the
airport to be gone, we want it
to be there. We want it to be
kept up to par, but kept as is
now. We don't want to encour-
age more growth to the airport
because it will ruin the quality
of life here. More traffic in
town, more transient people. It
would benefit just a few to


Let 'em


Have It


have it made into a larger air-
port.
Never a "C." This is in re-
gards to having the airport be a
"C" airport. Let's keep in mind
that the airport was never a
"C" airport, and even if it is a
"C" airport, it can't meet the
requirements of a "C" airport.
Furthermore, people who are
in Gulf Shores were never
informed that they were in an
RPZ zone; therefore, there will
be lawsuits that follow, if in fact
this is made and continues the
course of a "C" when it should
be a "B."
No upgrade. I want the air-
port to be kept as a B-II. I do
not want it upgraded to a C-II.
I don't want my quality of life


or the quality of my town to
change. I don't any more pol-
lution, more noise, more peo-
ple. Please keep the airport as
a B-II.
Statement. I am a property
owner near by the airport and
I've tried to weigh the argu-
ments and discourse as much
as I can, and my sense intu-
itively is that we have learned
in this country that bigger is
not always better. The beauty
of Venice is its quaintness and
the peace and quiet. I just
think that if we had a very
good B-II facility with safety
for our pilots, but a smaller
scale operation that would be
part of the B-II designation,
that, I think, would continue to
make Venice a very, very unique
city in the United States. I think
we've seen enough in this coun-
try of "bigger is better, larger is
better," and it doesn't work.
Therefore, I certainly do en-
courage the city, if not fighting,
but keep moving toward get-
ting this classified as a B-II
facility. My guts tells me this is
the best thing for the city and
not just for those living imme-
diately near the airport and
have other political considera-
tions, but just for the city in its
entirety. It's the right of the
community to have a B-II
facility. Stay with who you are.
Keep it small and keep it sim-
ple. We're all learning this in
the United States, and it would
be a good statement for this
community to make.
Wagging. Keep fighting to
get the airport a B-II? Abso-
lutely not. A total waste of
time. A total waste of money
and a classic example of an
impotent city council trying to
wag the dog. It has been and
always will be a C-II. Let's get
council up with reality.
Forward. The Venice air-
port should definitely be left a
"C" airport. It was given to the
city by the federal government
with stipulations that it remain
for aviation purposes. It's been
a C-II, the interests warrant it
and we don't need to be going
backward in today's world. We
need to go forward, not look
backward.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS

'They' aren't doing the job

Editor:
How many have driven to the North Jetty Fish
Camp? If you are lucky, you can make it the last 20 feet
or so without breaking an axle or, if it has been rain-
ing, losing your car in a mud hole. Of course, I am
exaggerating, but it is terrible.
I have been going to the jetty since I moved here in
1973. I saw no improvement in the entrance even
after the county took over. Sure, it grades it once a
week, but it is still full of potholes.
Many of us have called the county and have been
told the situation has been turned over to the proper
people, whoever they are.
Take a drive down there on any given day (really
nice after a rain) and you will see what I'm talking
about.
Can't something be done?

Dithering on drinking puts youth at risk


BY STEPHEN
WALLACE
GUEST COLUMNIST

The start of a new year
often brings with it a
resolve to try something
new, fix something old, or
tackle a problem too long
left unsolved. Imagine
what the start of a new
decade offers.
A specific problem
that has long suffered
from vast national equiv-
ocation has been one
that involves the health
and safety of young peo-
ple: underage drinking.
Curious given a con-
certed federal effort to
curb underage drinking.
The Interagency Coor-
dinating Committee on
the Prevention of Under-
age Drinking, which is
chaired by the Substance
Abuse and Mental Health
Services Administration,
supports a range of pro-
grams.
That effort, among
others, seems to have
made some progress.
But progress may be
slowing, meaning it's
time to revisit the issue
and the role all adults
play (or don't play) in
realizing the goals set out
in a report from the Na-
tional Research Council
and Institute of Medicine
of the National Acad-
emies (Reducing Under-
age Drinking: A Collec-
tive Responsibility) a
critical research-based
book and call to action
that got the ball rolling.
According to new
Monitoring the Future
data from the University
of Michigan, a long-term
gradual decline in alco-
hol use among eighth-,
10th- and 12th-graders


has leveled off, with the
trend continuing for only
the eighth-graders.
Similar results were
found for binge drinking,
defined as the consump-
tion of five (for men, four
for women) or more
drinks in a row at least
once in the previous two
weeks.
Not encouraging
news, given what we
know about youth and
alcohol.
For example, the Aca-
demies estimate the an-
nual cost of underage
drinking at $53 billion in
losses from traffic deaths,
violent crime and other
destructive behavior.
When it comes to
older adolescents, Teens
Today research from Stu-
dents Against Destruc-
tive Decisions reveals
that by 12th grade more
than three in four teens
are drinking.
The Center for Sub-
stance Abuse Research
notes that 85 percent of
17-year-old drinkers get
drunk at least once in a
typical month.


And then there's col-
lege.
In February 2009, a
survey of 6,608 students
at the University of Wis-
consin revealed:
33 percent of respon-
dents reported that they
have missed classes due
to alcohol,
24 percent of respon-
dents reported they had
unprotected sex due to
alcohol, and
49 percent of respon-
dents reported doing
something while drink-
ing alcohol that they later
regretted.
So pervasive is college
drinking that teens in
SADD-related focus
groups cite preparing for
it as a primary reason for
drinking in high school.
Ralph Hingson of the
National Institute on Al-
cohol Abuse and Alco-
holism points out some
of the same as well as
other alcohol-related
consequences for college
students:


Death 1,700 die
each year from alcohol-
related unintentional in-
juries, including motor
vehicle crashes.
Injury- 599,000 are
unintentionally injured
under the influence of
alcohol.
Assault more than
696,000 are assaulted by
another student who has
been drinking.
Sexual abuse -
more than 97,000 are vic-
tims of alcohol-related
sexual assault or date
rape.
Unsafe sex -
400,000 have unprotect-
ed sex and more than
100,000 report having
been too intoxicated to
know if they consented
to having sex.
Academic problems
- about 25 percent of
students report academ-
ic consequences of their
drinking, including
missing class, falling
behind, doing poorly on
exams or papers and

Drunk driving 2.1
million drive under the
influence of alcohol each
year.
And yet the problem
of alcohol use on or
around college campus-
es continues to be a
polarizing issue, with
some in higher educa-
tion advocating for low-
ering the minimum
legal drinking age (poof
... the "problem" then
disappears) while pre-
vention experts insist
that the law saves lives
and serves as an effec-
tive deterrent (SADD
research points to the
21-year-old minimum
legal drinking age as the
No. 1 reason those
younger don't drink).
Similarly, researchers
at the Washington Uni-
versity School of Med-
icine credit the current
law for a decline in binge
drinking among 12- to
20-year-old males (fe-


males are not doing as
well), although they
found that college stu-
dents of both genders are
binge drinking more.
Knowing the scale and
the cost of the problem,
all Americans can face
the new decade with a re-
newed sense of urgency
to pursue proven effec-
tive strategies to reduce
underage drinking at col-
lege ... and before.
A good start, as with
other problems, is ack-
nowledging that one
exists. Many colleges that
have cite declines in
underage and high-risk
drinking among stu-
dents.
The time to equivo-
cate ran out when the
ball dropped at midnight
on Dec. 31.

GIRLS SOCCER CLASS 5A-REGION 3 FINAL


Venice's season comes to an end


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


MR. SHEEPSHEAD
COLUMNIST


Goodbye,


Capt. Mel

Our area has lost a true
gentleman.
Capt. Mel Berman's forum
was probably the busiest in
the state as he had a radio
show every Saturday morn-
ing and also did fishing
reports on Tampa television.
I will miss him after he didn't
make it through open-heart
surgery.
I had the honor of being
his guest on the radio show
a few years ago. We talked
about sheepshead, and peo-
ple would call in to ask ques-
tions about them. Even when
I wasn't on his show, he
would promote my bait.
Every winter we would
talk about him coming down
to fish with me but unfortu-
nately, it never happened.
He grew up in Philadelphia
and I grew up in Baltimore,
and we always had plenty to
talk about the good old days.
Goodbye, Mel.
The fishing in our area
hasn't been good. On occa-
sion a few decent fish are
caught. Some are catching
sheepies in the Intracoastal.
Eventually, the weather
will cooperate. What a winter.
Well, fellow Sheepshead-
ites, the time has come to say
goodbye until next week.

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

The best-ever season in soc-
cer at Venice High came to a
close on a windy Saturday after-
noon at Powell-Davis Stadium.
A season filled with more
highs than lows ended just one
match short of the state Final
Four as the Lady Indians' high-
scoring offense was shut down
by Seminole for the second
straight year in the Class 5A-
Region 3 final.
Last year, the LadyWarhawks
used an overtime goal to elim-
inate Venice in the regional
quarterfinals.
This year, the Lady Indians,
who were making their region-
al final debut, battled Seminole
to the end, but it was a goal at
the 20-minute mark that lifted
the Lady Warhawks to a 1-0
win.
"It was a tremendous sea-
son," saidVenice coach Sheldon
Chamberlain. "It was the best
season Venice has ever had in
soccer for girls (or boys). Got
to be proud of all that."

Venice's Matt Parker puts Ida Baker's Jimmy Bogar on his back in the
third period of their semifinal match in the Class 2A-District 11 tourna-
ment on Saturday at Venice High. Parker got the pin and eventually cap-
tured the district title at 103 pounds.


Last year as a freshman,
Venice's Matt Parker only
weighed 97 pounds wrestling
in the 103-pound weight class
and struggled with a losing
record.
In the offseason, Parker
added weight and skills.
This year, the sophomore is
a district champion after cap-
turing the 103-pound weight
class in the Class 2A-District 11
tournament on Saturday at
Venice High.
In addition to Parker, senior
Jeremy Erickson also picked up
a first-place ribbon and district


championship at 119 pounds.
The two were among nine
Venice wrestlers who placed in
the top four and qualified for
the Class 2A-Region 3 tourna-
ment on Feb. 12 and 13 at
Charlotte High in Punta Gorda.
The nine helped the Indians
grab the runner-up trophy by
accumulating 136 points. Char-
lotte won the team title with
227 points. It was the Tarpons'
school-record fifth straight
district title.
"Our goal was to come

Venice captures title


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

When it counted the most,
Venice prevailed.
For the first time in three meet-
ings, the Lady Indians rallied from
a 16-point deficit on the strength
of 38 points by sophomore Juliana
Cavallaro to beat Gulf Coast High,
66-55, on Saturday night to cap-
ture the Class 5A-District 10 title.
"Juliana just basically took the
game over, going to the basket,"
said Venice coach John Flynn.
This is Venice's first district
crown since beating Manatee on
Feb. 12, 2005 and also marks the
Lady Indians first trip to postsea-
son since 2005 when the Lady
Indians placed in the state Class

teams. We got ourselves ready
for this. We should have done
better today."
In fact, four of Venice's five
regular-season losses were to
opponents who are still play-
ing in the state Final Four in
the respective classifications.
Playing into a strong head
wind in the first half had the
Lady Indians (16-6-3) on their
heels as the Seminoles pres-
sured Venice's defense. The
Lady Warhawks had 12 shots
compared to four for Venice in
the first half.
Venice's Weaver made seven
saves in the first half but had
no chance in the 20th minute.
"The wind was a big factor,"
said Weaver. "The first half it
was just awful. It was like we


were playing against 20 play-
ers." It definitely gave them an
extra boost. Every time I punt
it, it just hung in the air and
rolled back."
Seminole senior Megan
Lawrence pushed the ball
through three defenders to
an unmarked Sierra Lelii in
the center of the field from
about 18-yards out. Weaver
tried to get a hand on it but
the ball found the back of the
net. It was Lelii's 38th goal of
the season.
"It was miscommunica-
tion," said Weaver about the
goal. "It was just one of those
things. It was a good shot."
"That was a mistake," said
Chamberlain. "It should have
been 0-0. They got that goal
going through. We had a let-
down there. We couldn't get


through and we have two of
the best forwards definitely
on the west coast (of Flor-
ida)."
Venice didn't get many
chances to score as Seminole
won most 50-50 balls and
didn't give Venice's potent
scorers Dana LaRocque
and Tina Trujic, who have a
combined 59 goals any room
to get shots off.
"We've been rich with
goals the whole season and
didn't get anything today,"
Chamberlain said. "They
were tough on defense. They
banged Tina a lot and banged
Dana. They couldn't get set-
tled. They didn't give us any-
time or space to work up
there. We just couldn't get any
shots off. Nothing that was
worth it. Their defense was


there."
However, one opportunity
was stuffed by Seminole's
defense in the 28th minute as
LaRocque, who entered with
30 goals, got a breakaway and
was alone with the keeper and
a defender on her heals. She
didn't get a clean kick and the
ball was stopped by diving
Seminole goalkeeper Casey
Merson.
The Lady Indians only really
had one more chance in the
final three minutes of the first
half.
LaRocque dribbled in deep
on the left wing and lofted a
shot, which looked like it
might go over Merson's head.
However, the keeper jumped
and pushed the ball over the
net with her hand.
"We stepped up and played

well defensively in the second
half for sure," said Seminole
coach Steve Kuplicki. "They
have some shooters and hit the
ball real well. Proud of our
defense."
With the wind to their back
in the second half, Venice had
the advantage with a 12-2 mar-
gin in shots but no real hard
shots close in. Merson made
six saves but no tough ones in
the half.
"We should have scored a
goal but they denied us," said
Chamberlain. "We really didn't
have a good shot."
"We were expecting to
come out and score a couple,"
said Weaver about the second
half. "That's the breaks. You
just do what you can."

we've come home with anything. Just
not used to that as for so many years
we were always first or second."
Last year, Parker struggled with a 5-
17 record and lost his only two matches
of the district tournament.
On Saturday, he came back from
what Coach Kelly said was his worst
match of the season (a 1-0 win in the
opening match) with a second-period
pin in the semifinals then cruised to a
10-4 win over Lakewood Ranch's Evan
Dipsner in the finals.
Parker (35-6) went ahead 6-1 in the
first period on a takedown and two
two-point near falls. He added another
takedown and two more nearfall points
in the second period to take a 10-2 lead.
Dipsner only scored a takedown in the
third period.
"I kind of waited for the shot to open
up and took it," said Parker. "I was con-
fident I would make it to regionals. I
thought I could make top four. I didn't
think I would come in first."
"After he wrestled poorly, I thought
he wrestled outstanding," said Kelly.
"By far the best."
At 119 pounds, Erickson, who was
also a top-seed like Parker, raised his
record to 36-3 with three wins includ-
ing one by pin.
In the final, Erickson notched a 9-6
win over Ida Baker freshman Christian
Journey.
Erickson got a takedown with 13 sec-
onds left in the first period for a 2-0

lead. An escape to open the second
period put the senior ahead 3-0.
Journey cut it 3-2 with a takedown with
58 seconds left. Erickson then used a
throw to put Journey on his back for a
five-point move. After two periods, he
led 8-3.
"I felt it (the throw) and was waiting
for the counter shot," said Erickson.
"He pushed right in and I knew it. It was
kind of instinct so I had to throw it."
An escape and takedown in the third
period pulled Journey within, 8-6, but
Erickson sealed the win with an escape
in the closing 10 seconds.
'At first I was really surprised," said
Erickson. "He's a big freshman and he
knew a lot. I knew I was coming into a
good match."
The transfer from Maryland is one
step closer to getting to states.


"My weight has been so much lower
and I just feel so much better," said
Erickson. "I feel so in shape right now. I
feel so good. I'm ready for regionals."
Venice's Jovanny Concepcion, Frank
Trigg and Devin Balsinger placed sec-
ond in the their respective weight class-
es.
At 135 pounds, Concepcion (33-10)
had a 3-2 lead after the first period
against Ida Baker's Justin Nielsen but
was outscored 7-0 over the final two
periods for a 9-3 loss.
"Jovanny wrestled fine," said Kelly.
"That kid is really tough."
At 152 pounds, Trigg wrestled
Charlotte's Avery Brightwell for the
third time this season. Brightwell used
a takedown with 22 seconds left on a
close call near the out of bounds line to
pull out a 3-1 win.
Trigg (27-11) nearly had a takedown
midway through the first period but the
match was scoreless after one period.
Brightwell escaped for a 1-0 lead in the
second period.
Trigg was letup for an escape to tie
the match at 1-1 to begin the third peri-
od only to lose in the final seconds.
"He wrestled him the best he's wres-
tled him this year," said Kelly. "So close
to getting the takedowns."
Balsinger led 3-1 over Palmetto's
Darius Brooks at 285 pounds but
Brooks used a head throw to put
Balsinger on his back for a pin in 2:50.
"The kid is very opportunistic," said


Kelly. "He's very smart. He waits for the
mistake."
Venice's other regional qualifiers
were Colton Schuchert (140 pounds),
Justin Shaner (112), Larsen Ulrich (130)
and Robert Wahlrab (215). Schuchert
placed third while while the other three
wrestlers were fourth at districts.

Gulf Coast led early and jumped out to a 13-6
first-quarter lead as Riki Carach scored 10 of her 20
points.
The Lady Sharks went ahead by as many as 16
points in the second quarter but Venice battled back
and closed out the second quarter with a 8-0 scoring
barrage to cut the deficit to 29-25 by halftime.
Helping Venice was foul trouble on Carach and an
injury to their point guard Vic Gaccione
In the third quarter, the Lady Indians took con-
trol on a steal and layup by Cavallaro to grab a 33-
31 lead. Cavallaro scored five points in the final 15
seconds of the third quarter to give Venice a 45-38
lead. Venice outscored the Lady Sharks, 20-9, in the
quarter.
"I wanted to take the ball at them because they give
you so much room to play," said Flynn about the sec-
ond half. "Our defense was fantastic in the second
half. They just shut them down. They made some stu-
pid turnovers, missed a few shots. We made every-
thing we shot. Then all of a sudden we were up nine
and 11 points, back and forth."
In the fourth quarter, Cavallaro lived at the foul line
and made 14-of-15.
Venice hit 29-of-43 from the line for the game and
Cavallaro connected on 21-of-26.
"Hannah (Revels) played a great game," said Flynn.
"Kirsten (Walchle) had a huge game taking care of
basketball and making some key steals."
Sophomore Laura Hackett finished with 15 points.

Habitat ReStore celebrates third year


BY MARY NEACY
SPECIAL TO
THE GONDOLIER SUN
Even though the wea-
ther prevented Bandana
from performing, it did-
n't deter the stream of
customers who ap-
peared throughout the
day to take advantage of
the closeout prices, the
huge garage sale and
other bargains offered by
the Habitat South Re-
Store in celebration of its
third anniversary.
Brian Dickerson, store
manager since the store
opened three years ago,
wasn't surprised by the
great public turnout.
"With all the doom
and gloom around the
world, I think people are
looking for ways to cheer
up," he said. "Finding a
bargain or two helps."


He pointed out the
new, brightly decorated
Venice High School
booth that highlights
sports attire for fans of
the Venice Indians.
"We want to connect
with the community and
the football fans to raise
awareness for both Ven-
ice High School sports
and the ReStore," he said.
Jessica Pluchino, equip-
ment manager for Venice
football, was enjoying
her role of introducing
the public to the clothing
available.
"This is a new endeav-
or for us," she said. "We
think it will be a mutually
beneficial relationship."
The Venice football/
ReStore relationship is
further enhanced by
David Williams, a captain
of the Indians football
team, who is a part-time


employee of the ReStore.
"It feels good to want
to come to work," he
said. "I wake up every
day knowing that I'm
going to do something
for someone."
Missions
Annette Valentine, a
snowbird from Connect-
icut, and friend Madge
Meyers, a Venice resi-
dent, were having fun
trying on a variety of sun-
glasses.
"My husband and I
love the ReStore," Valen-
tine said. "I just picked

The Habitat South ReStore, 1400 Ogden Road, has been in business for three years, pro-
viding bargains to shoppers and funds for Habitat's programs.


Jim and Mary Garlock,
former Californians now
living in Venice, were
browsing the shelves for
possible purchases.
"I read the papers and
ads thoroughly every
day," Mary said. "We visit
the ReStore often and
have found lots of items


to buy."
Jim had already select-
ed a pot to add to their
cooking supplies. A new
pair of sunglasses was on
the list for Mary.
As he looked at the
customers browsing the
ReStore aisles, Dickerson
said, "I think shopping at


the ReStore has made
our customers more
aware of the work Hab-
itat does in providing
homes for people in
need. Raising that aware-
ness and helping to fi-
nance Habitat's mission
is what the ReStore is all
about."

Commissioner absent with an excuse


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

Marianne Reilly, the
vice chair of the Sarasota
County Planning Com-
mission, wasn't in her
usual seat for Thursday
night's meeting in South
Venice.
Reilly hasn't missed
a commission session
often. The last time was
Sept. 4, 2008.
This day, and many
days leading up to it, the
five-year commissioner
was in Orlando volun-
teering her services to
the American Red Cross
in its relief efforts follow-
ing the devastating Jan.
12 earthquake in Haiti.
"It's a big operation,"
Reilly said in a phone
interview.
Red Cross disaster relief
response to the magni-
tude 7.0 quake was chan-
neled into North Florida at
Orlando and into South
Florida at Miami. The
north headquarters in-
cludes the American Red
Cross regions of Mid-
Florida, Tampa (including
Sarasota and Charlotte
counties) and Jacksonville
(including Pensacola).
The south headquarters
regions include Lee
County and all counties
southward.
Most volunteers get
the call to action from
their local chapters. In
Reilly's case, her sum-
mons came from the
national headquarters in
Washington, D.C. She
said she is part of the
staff planning and sup-
port response and the
only manager at her level
in the state.
"They (the Red Cross
hierarchy) say they need
you to go there and start
working," Reilly said
from Orlando, her voice
competing with the
sounds of activity swirling
around her. "I pack a bag,


and I come."
Called to help
For her volunteer work,
the retired real estate
professional has trav-
eled all over the nation
in response to disaster.
There were the wildfires
in San Diego, the flood
in Wisconsin and the
tropical storms and hur-
ricanes in Florida.
Reilly said her call to
help came when Hurri-
cane Katrina hit in August
2005.
"I was watching (Ka-
trina reports) on CNN,"
recalled the transplanted
New Jerseyan, who now
lives in Venice. "I knew I
had to do something."
She said she went to
the local American Red
Cross chapter, where she
was trained for three
days. On the fourth day,
she was assigned family
services duty.
The work in Orlando
has focused on the people
returning to the United
States on planes that had
just delivered supplies to
the afflicted country. The
first wave included repa-
triating Americans, many
of them injured, Reilly
said.
As they arrive at San-
ford International Airport,
the earthquake survivors
first are assessed for their
medical needs, she said.
Comfort and transporta-
tion services follow.
Reilly said many
returnees have no clothes
or money when they
arrive. Some Americans
have had to wait in Haiti
until they could provide
proof of their U.S. citizen-
ship, she said.
Volunteers respond
to their needs with food,
drink, even money
obtained through Red
Cross programs. Volun-
teers also work to
reunite the returnees
with family members in


the United States.
Open hearts
Among the partner
groups with the Red
Cross, Reilly said, is a
Haitian church whose
members have helped in
translating the French-
based Creole language
commonly spoken in
Haiti.
There also have been
flights filled with Haitian
orphans, she said. The
orphans already are in
the adoption system, but
because of the earth-
quake, the adoption
process has been accel-
erated. Some orphan
arrivals were able to go
home with their adop-
tive family, Reilly said.
The others were placed
into a foster home.
When they arrived,
"comfort kits" were dis-
tributed along with col-
oring books and crayons.


Currently, the Red
Cross is transitioning its
disaster response into
Medevac flights that will
land at Tampa Inter-
national Airport. Once
there, patients will be
taken to nearby hospi-
tals by wheel or wing to
receive treatment.
Elaine Henrich, Red
Cross Disaster Public
Affairs chair, said 9,342
people have been flown
from Haiti to airports in
Florida. While Miami dis-


aster operations continue
to be open, flights were
suspended until after
Sunday's Super Bowl.
Henrich said the Red
Cross is looking to help
Haiti in its rebuilding
efforts. It is anticipated
that many people will be
without shelter, she said.
Haitian survivors will
need shelter able to with-
stand hurricane-force
winds, she said, when the
hurricane season starts
June 1.


Reilly compared the
reaction to natural disas-
ters within the United
States to that following
the earthquake in Haiti.
U.S. disasters put the
realization "sharply in
focus that we are all
Americans," no matter
what color, sex or reli-
gion, she said. "We all
come with open hearts.
"In Haiti, we're all
human beings, regard-
less of boundaries or
borders."

VENICE CONCERT BAND PERFORMS 12B


Area skaters headed



to the Winter Olympics

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

When the pair skaters take to the ice Feb. 14 at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, British
Columbia, Venice viewers will be cheering hometown favorites Jeremy Barrett, 25, and his part-
ner, Caydee Denney, 16, the reigning United States pair champions.
Feb. 8, the skaters and their training partners, Amanda Evora and Mark Ladwig, who were
second at the U.S. nationals in Spokane, Wash., left for Vancouver.
"We skated there last year," Barrett said. "The Four Continents competition was held in the
Olympic rink."
They will skate the short program on Valentine's Day, Feb. 14, and the long program on Feb.


Who is their major competition?
"Ourselves," Barrett said. "We were ninth last year at worlds, so somewhere about there
would be great."
Last year, their first as pair partners, they leaped to a second-place finish in their first out-
ing together at nationals.
"Together" is the operative word for both skaters have plenty of competition experience.
Barrett began his ice career at the age of 8 at the old Ice Chateau in Venice. Denney began
as a roller skater in Ocala. Denney made the switch to ice at 9, having earned medals in sin-
gles, pairs and creative solo dance.

Jeremy Barrett and Caydee Denney, the current U.S. figure
skating pair champions, will go for Olympic gold Feb. 14 and
15 in Vancouver.

"There is a great program here," Denney said.
To deal with the world, these two pairs have
three of the world's top coaches and also got
help from another Olympian, former ice
dancer Judy Blumberg, who won a world
bronze medal in ice dancing with partner Michael Seibert
in 1983, 1984 and 1985. Blumberg was brought in to work
with Barrett and Denney on "Scharherazade," to which
Blumberg skated.
"We worked with her at nationals too," Barrett said.
Now coaching in Sun Valley, Idaho, Blumberg is an
International Skating Union technical expert. Since the
adoption of the new ISU judging system in 2005, skaters
and coaches who pay attention to the new scoring system in
the creation of their programs definitely have an advantage
over those who do not.
With points awarded for individual elements, degrees of
difficulty for those elements and the manner in which pro-
grams are skated and even choreographed, one missing or
added element can make the difference between earning a


medal or not.
Blumberg also has improved the edge quality of both pairs, something traceable to
her background as an ice dancer. Under the ISU system, edge quality is key to the skat-
ing skills mark given as one of five program element scores. The others include transi-
tions, footwork and movement, performance/execution, choreography/composition
and interpretation. While these marks will not be seen by the public, they count for up
to 50 points in the total score.


The team's resident coaches are American Peterson, Canadian Lyndon Johnston
and Alison Smith of Great Britain.
Former U.S. competitor Peterson skated pairs at the U.S. national level
from 1995-2001, with partner Laura Handy the first two years,
Natalie Vlandis from 1998-2000, and
Stephanie Woodman in 1997-1998 and
again in 2000-2001. A two-time
Olympian, he is the teams' primary
coach and choreographer, while
Johnston concentrates on the tech-
nical aspects of their programs and
Smith lends expertise as an interna-
tional coach of such stars as the late I
Olympic and world champion
John Curry.
Johnston, a member of the
Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame
since 1993, was Canadian junior
pair champion (with Melinda Kunhegy) in

"I picked it up fairly quickly," she said
about the transition from
wheels to blades.
Denney came to
Ellenton because of its
reputation and to work with
coach Jim Peterson, who skated in two
Olympics.

ing team.

Figure Skating Club, which began in Venice some 15
years ago.


SKATING CLUB
BEGAN IN VENICE
About 1994, there was a small rink
in a mall located about where Ophelia's
restaurant in Nokomis is today. When the
figure skaters outgrew that rink, a larger rink was
built in the space formerly used by Rhodes Furniture
Store on South U.S. 41 Bypass. The club and its skaters
moved there, finally able to skate on a full-sized rink.
When the Venice rink closed some three years later, the club
and most of its skaters moved north to the Ellenton Ice &
Sports Complex, which is immediately north of the Prime Outlets
shopping mall, just off Interstate 75, at Exit 224 at Ellenton.
In less than two decades, Florida has become one of the
prime training areas for figure skaters. The club that began in
Venice is the center of it all, with an especially strong pair skating
program featuring internationally known coaches.
At the 2009 Nationals in Cleveland, Ohio, an Ellenton pair, Tracy
Tanovich and Michael Chau, won the junior pairs championship, and
former Venice skater Daniel Raad and his partner, Haven Denney,
took the silver medal in novice pairs. The junior champions had to
move up to senior for this year and placed fourth at the Eastern com-
petition. Raad and Denney competed in junior pairs the U.S. Figure
Skating Nationals in Spokane, Wash., placing seventh overall. Raad
also competed in the senior men's division.

Little ones learn to 'B Cool' and civil


BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER

Part of the curriculum at the
Venice Nokomis United Meth-
odist Child Care Center focus-
es on the 10 Keys to Civility, as
defined by Gulf Coast Com-
munity Foundation ofVenice.
The keys are designed to
help unlock doors to improved
behavior between fellow hu-
man beings and are a part of
the foundation's Because It
Matters initiative.
The 10 Keys to Civility are
listed on the Because It Mat-
ters Web site: Respect Others,
Think Positively, Pay Attention,
Make a Difference, Say Thank
You, Accept Others, Rediscover
Silence, Keep Your Cool, Listen
and Speak Kindly.
In keeping with the effort,
the school routinely sets aside
a day a month to highlight one
of the keys and engages the
preschoolers in related activi-
ties. In the past, they have
made cards for soldiers, visited
seniors at nursing homes, rung
Salvation Army bells and deliv-

Recently, the students
learned to act out how to "keep
cool" in frustrating situations
with Gladys Varga, a profes-
sional storyteller and drama
coach. She showed the 4-year-
old students how to pound out
a fistful of energy on a pillow as


an alternate means of letting
out their anger.
According to Barbara Zier,
preschool director, "even at the
young age of 2, 3 and 4 years
old, children can learn how
they can make a difference in
someone's life by the way they
act. They can be an example to

Zier added that the preschool

dren, parents and the communi-
ty that everyone's actions make a

FROM SARASOTA COUNTY
SCHOOL DISTRICT


Creations by 51 Sarasota County high
school students have been accepted for
display in an art exhibit at the annual
Florida State Fair in Tampa now through
Monday, Feb. 15.
The Florida State Fair All State Art
Exhibition and Portfolio competition is
Florida's only statewide adjudicated
and publicly displayed student art
event. High school students from
throughout Florida who submit work
are eligible to have individual works or
full portfolios of work accepted for dis-
play. From the Sarasota County School
District, students from Booker, North
Port, Pine View, Riverview, Sarasota and


Venice high schools submitted artwork
that was accepted.
Colleges receive the list of accepted
portfolios and may offer scholarships
to their accepted students based on
this event. In addition, 10 portfolio win-
ners are chosen annually to receive
scholarships from the exhibition's orga-
nizers to continue their art studies.
Six Sarasota County students had
their portfolios selected, and one stu-
dent, Alan Jason Avis of Booker High
School, was among the 10 students
statewide who received a $1,000 schol-
arship.

top fours team that year.
(Fours are no longer skated in
the United States). Three years
later he skated at his first of
two Olympics. He skated in six
world championships, earn-
ing a silver medal at worlds in
1989. He also skated with
Denise Benning and Cindry
Landry. He earned 18 medals
at the national level and 15
international medals.
Smith, winner of Britain's
Master Coach Award, guided
John Curry to his world and
Olympic championships.
Skating background
Born in 1984 at Sarasota
Memorial Hospital, Barrett
skated with his sister, Shawn-
Marie, reaching the national
junior level. In 2001, he paired
with Shantal Jordan, winning
another national junior title in
2004 and a first in France as
guests in the 2005 French
senior championships.
In 2006 he first teamed with
Denney, but separated for a

while before getting together
again to place second at the
U.S. nationals in Cleveland in
2008, sixth at the Four
Continents event and ninth at
the world championships at
Gothenburg, Sweden.
Ocala-born Evora has dated
Barrett about five years.
Ladwig is married to a non-
skater and recently became a
father. Neither lets their per-
sonal life interfere with their
jobs on the ice.
This was Ladwig's eighth
trip to nationals, but the first
time on the podium. He skat-
ed with Kelsey Soltom and
Keri Blakinger and trained
with Ron Ludington at the
University of Wilmington
Figure Skating Club in
Newark, Del. He and Evora
joined forces in 2005, placing
seventh at the U.S. champi-
onships. They were fourth a
year ago in Cleveland.
In Spokane, the two Florida
pairs beat reigning champions
Keauna Mclaughlin and
Rockne Brubacher and two-
time national winners Rena


Inoue and John Baldwin, who
have earned medals every
year since 2003. This was like-
ly the final competition for
Inoue and Baldwin, who will
not be alternates to either the
Olympic or world competi-
tions this year.
Barrett still lists Venice as
his home, although now that
he is in the upper echelons
of figure skating, the world
beckons.
The two top teams also
qualify for the world cham-
pionships in Turin, Italy,
March 22-28.
Training regimen
Both pairs skate two 45-
minute practices daily. Add in
additional hours of off-ice
stretching, weight training
and off-ice pair lifting, and it's
a total of some six hours daily.
Those hours are in addition to
the hours Denney spends as
a high school student and
Barrett spends working to
earn money for his skating.
Barrett coaches skaters and
drives the Zamboni.


As champions, the pairs get
some help from U.S. Figure
Skating.
"I still work," Barrett said,
"but I have been able to cut
back quite a bit."
Local support has meant a
lot to the skaters, Barrett said.
The public was admitted to
daily sessions for nearly two
weeks, but the final week,
practices were closed,
Johnston said.
"It's good to learn to per-
form under those conditions,
but then they had to come
down before building for
Vancouver," he said.
Olympic schedule
Feb. 12, the two pairs and
coaches Peterson and
Johnston will march in the
opening ceremonies. They will
practice the next day and
skate their short program Feb.
14 and the long program Feb.
15. The draw for the skating
order will occur in Vancouver
when the Olympics begin.
The skaters will stay in the
Olympic Village and will


remain in Vancouver after the
pair events for several days to
cheer on teammates in singles
and dance events. They will
return to Ellenton Feb. 20 or
21 to practice for worlds and
then return to Vancouver on
Feb. 26 in time for the team
dinner and closing cere-
monies.
"They will get the full treat-
ment," Johnston said.
Their parents will be there
too.
"Procter and Gamble does
this thing called No Mother
Left Behind," Johnston said.
Figure skating events con-
tinue through Feb. 24. The
men's short program event is
Feb. 16, followed by the long
programs on Feb. 18. Dancers
skate their compulsory dances
on Feb. 19, original dance on
Feb. 21 and free dance on Feb.
22. The women take the ice for
short programs on Feb. 23 and
skate the long programs on
Feb. 24.
Let the games begin.

Love was in the air at the
Venice Community Center.
Couples held hands listening
to their favorite songs and a
tribute to Harry James.
Director Bill Millner fea-
tured Vicki Elmore, Phil
Hohmann and Rick Louis
during the sold-out winter
concert.
Sarah Rideout Slight added
to the romance, singing
"Gypsy Love Song."
Venice Concert Band pro-
grams always fill the spirit.
They provide the right mix-
ture of toe-tapping music,
hum-alongs and Millner sto-
ries that draw groans and
laughter.
The next concert is Feb.
22 with tickets available at 1


p.m. the afternoon of the per-
formance (and possibly at
the door).
Bravo.
Historic homes
About 100 people enjoyed

The special person of this
week is Bob Briner, some-
times known as the Dairy
Queen man. Most longtime
Venice residents remember
his Dairy Queen store and
purchasing their favorite
treats from him.
He remembers his regu-
lars and what they ordered,
and has some great stories
about circus people who
often made his Dairy Queen
their first stop when arriv-
ing in Venice.
These days he enjoys
attending special events in
town, telling stories on the
historic trolley tours and
volunteering at the Venice
Archives. He loves people
and enjoys spreading cheer.
He has a tie and socks for
almost every holiday and
likes seeing people smile
when he wears them
Bob Briner is one of the
longtime Venice residents
who make Venice a great
place to live.

Happy Valentine's Day.

Now it's time

for our circus


Circus Sarasota is this area's own circus. It
benefits all of us in countless ways with its
outreach programs. Each February, it stages the
finest one-ring tent show, with nothing but center
ring performers.
Featuring some of the best acts in the circus world,
Circus Sarasota has a deal for circus fans this year.
Tickets for every single show Feb. 12-14 will be half
price. With prices ranging from $10 to $42 per person,
that means you can pay as little as $5 per person for
grandstand seats. Or, splurge and enjoy seats in a VIP
box for just $21 or ringside for $19. Consider too that
there is no bad seat for this one-ring show.
Performers will either be right above or right in front
of you as they fly through the air, walk the wire, jump
through hoops or clown around.
Founded by Pedro Reis and Dolly Jacobs who starred
in The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus,
Circus Sarasota preserves the legacy of circus in this
area in a most special way.
This year's show features Nik Wallenda, seventh
generation performer of the famed Wallenda family. He
is a grandson of Karl, the man who created the
famed seven-person pyramid.
Visit www.circussarasota.org to learn more or to make
reservations. Or, call the box office at 941-355-9805.

The sun'II come out at Venice Theatre


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Planning for an extra long run of
"Annie," Venice Theatre's artistic
director Murray Chase selected a
double cast of orphans for the show
which opens Feb. 16 and plays through
March 14 on the main stage.
It has been 10 years since every-
one's favorite orphan and millionaire
Oliver Warbucks won out over the nasty
Miss Hannigan at the orphanage.
Seeking a new generation of young
actors, Chase found fifth graders
Amber Davies and Angela Potier to
alternate in the title role. Both have
studied acting at the theater. Double
casting all the orphans eases the
burden of the children who need to
keep up with school work while being
involved with the musical for some 10
weeks of rehearsals and performances.
Based on the "Little Orphan Annie"
comic strip by Harold Gray, "Annie"
opened on Broadway in 1977 and has


been playing there or somewhere ever
since, spawning a whole list of stars
who played the title role or one of the
orphans as youngsters. Amber Sulesky,
who won multiple awards for her role in
Venice Theatre's production of
Moliere's "School For Wives," was in the
previous Venice production of "Annie."
Warbucks is being played by William
Czarniak and Miss Hannigan by Lori
Chase, with Colleen Sudduth as
Warbucks' secretary. Michelle
Kasanovsky is the musical director.
Cynthia Ashford is the choreographer
and sets are by Michael Newton-
Brown, with costumes by Nicholas
Hartman. Cast One orphans include:
Amber Davies, Hannah Arielle Beatt,
Hannah Huber, Julia King, Teri DeNiro,
Emma Clare Bonham, Katie Dunn-
Rankin, Lilianna Solum and Alli Fuchs.
Cast two orphans include: Angela
Potier, Ava Podewitz, Leah Henry,
Reese Cameron Balliet, Haley Rosen-
thal, Savannah Bradley, Savannah


Ashford, Antoinette Gagliano and Aly
(Alykins) Kozowsk.
Others in the cast include Scott
Vitale, Andrea Keddell-Heintz, Bob
Peters, Maggi Taylor, Carole R.
Litt, Kenzie Morgan Balliet,
Danielle Brantley, Steve
Credeur, Francine Smetts,
Kristen Alinsley Pinkerton,
Andrea Haney Poole, Lynne
Doyle, Scarlet "Flower"
Pickering and Mike Pisacre-
ta with Nugget as Sandy the
dog and Bailey as the Dog
on the Lamb.
Performances are at 8
p.m. Tuesday through
Saturday and at 2 p.m. on
Sunday. Tickets are $24 per
person for adults and $12 for
children.
Venice Theatre is at 140 W Tampa
Ave., on the island in downtown Venice.\

Jimmy Walker's show to be 'Dy-no-mite'


BY SHARE DERRICKSON
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Some grew up with and couldn't wait
each week for Jimmy "J.J." Walker
and the popular 1970's comedy
show "Good Times." Walker will be
bringing his comedy to Visani Comedy
Dinner Theater in Port Charlotte for four
nights Feb. 17 through 20.
Walker, who has remained in comedy
since his long-running stint with "Good

array of television shows, including the
popular "Scrubs," has continued to be on
the comedy circuit. He had much to say
regarding his comedy and his visit to Port
Charlotte.
When asked why he stays in comedy,
Walker said, "I love stand up. It is my life's
work. Acting was a fluke something to
do between gigs. I like the immediate
feedback. A movie, you shoot and you
shoot and you wait and you wait and you
have no idea if you have a hit or what the
audience is thinking," he said.
Walker said changes in culture have
given him new material. "There is a

Circus Sarasota features Nik Wallenda


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Since its 1997 founding, Circus
Sarasota has evoked a center-
ring mentality.
The center ring of the not-for-profit
circus is where the biggest stars
perform. Circus Sarasota's one-ring
tent features nothing but center ring
performers such as the Wallenda
family.
Few circus families are as well
known as the Great Wallendas whose
seventh generation is represented in
Circus Sarasota by Nik Wallenda. With
members of his family, Nik will per-
form the famed Seven Person Pyramid
created by great grandfather Karl


Wallenda.
After a fall from the wire during a
Detroit performance of the pyramid in
1962, two members of the family were
killed and Mario, who still resides in
Sarasota, was crippled. They had
performed the act, without a wire, for
15 years at that point. Following that
tragedy, the pyramid was rarely
performed, except in the film, "The
Great Wallendas," shot about two
years later. Tragedy hit again in 1978
in San Juan, Puerto Rico, when Karl
fell to his death from a wire stretched
between two buildings.
Nik, following in his grandfather's
footsteps, earned a place in the
Guinness record book in 2008 for

SPECIAL TO THE SUN
When we were dating, Vic told
me that he had been in love
before. Apprehensively, I
waited to hear love stories that didn't
involve me.
The first true love of his life, Vic said,
occurred when he was only 12 years
old. He had an affair with an older
sailboat. He even made a set of sails for
it...from bed sheets. Hmmm. Other love
stories followed. The objects of his
affection were -- you got it boats.
I understood that his pre-teen's
psyche had been imprinted with a
powerful, though strange, attraction. I
married him anyway.
Now fast forward to a few years ago. I
turned to the comic strips and went
immediately to my favorite, Hagar the
Horrible.
From his comic strip barstool Hagar
the Horrible was telling his drinking
buddies that he had had nine true loves
in his life. All boats. OMG, I thought,
that's Vic and he's channeling Hagar the
Horrible.
I'm loving it. I clipped and taped this
strip to the refrigerator.
I'm not sure to this day if I know about
all of Vic's earlier sweethearts but I've
been an enthusiastic partner with him
on every acquisition since. The arrows
that Cupid released at us were surely
tipped with a Love Boat Potion.
When I read that cartoon strip my
boating memory kicked in and I started
counting up our loves: Dolphin, a 36-
foot ketch, was our "home" for four


years. Others include two Boston
Whalers, a few sloops, several Grand
Banks trawlers, and assorted dinghies.
Hagar told the boys in the bar that a
man is lucky if he has one true love in
his life. A boat owner nine times, Hagar
had been lucky nine times. Counting
boats only, Vic and I have Hagar's kind
of luck.
Sometimes truth speaks to you from
the funny papers. Sometimes it's from
the news section.
Did you hear about the new cruise
ship for 3,500 passengers? Impressive
specs, this boat: 1,487 cabins, 3,710
bunk spaces, and who knows how
many miles of all you can eat buffet
lines.
Those specs don't impress me. My
votes goes for something with two or
maybe three cabins, a reliable vessel
with a shallow draft that motors smooth-
ly along a placid coastal waterway
framed by mangrove wilderness and
views of wading birds, dolphins and the
occasional family of manatees.
My cruise ship doesn't have an
activities director; it doesn't have an
ATM; it doesn't have an onboard
hospital. In fact, it doesn't have a
schedule unless you say so. If it's
Tuesday, it's not Belgium, it's probably
Sanibel Island, or Useppa Island, or the
most beautiful beach you've ever seen
on Cayo Costa Island. Cruise ships
can't go there, and that's a good thing.
On my favorite cruise ship dressing up
for a meal means pulling a tee shirt


over your swimsuit. Passengers don't
cut into the buffet line to take the last
shrimp.
And every evening at dinner the
captain sits at my table.

There are many benches within Leu Gardens where visitors may stop to enjoy the
surroundings.


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Leu Gardens is a Florida
treasure, if only
because it serves
to show the diversity
of plants and
planting zones ts-o-
within the state of e.... t-.
Florida.
Those of us who
live along the South- .
west Coast would likely
never see a camellia in full
bloom without a trip tc Leu-
Gardens, which is a
colder planting zone.
That difference is
what camellias like.
They even liked
the recent freeze,
which, as a moder-
ate cold snap adds to
the sweetness of
oranges, encourages
camellias to burst into color. While
there was some damage to other
plants two weeks ago, the camellias
are at their peak these days and
should continue blooming well into
March.
Also blooming these days are the
many colorful azalea plants
throughout the grounds planned to
enhance the estate of the late Harry
P. Leu and his wife Mary Jane, who


spent some 25 years turning their
Orlando estate into a horticultural

a good third of the
estate on the south
side and extend up
to the middle
section where the
rose garden is
located. While this
is not the season for
roses, it is a good time
l a-e how they have
been cut back. By late
March or April they will
be flowering. That is
the beauty of Leu
Gardens. Whenever
you visit, there is
plenty to see.
The Leu's former
home has been
restored as the Leu
House Museum. Tours are
offered on the hour and half-hour
from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. except in
July when the house is closed.
Leu Gardens is 1920 N. Forest
Ave., Orlando, FL 32803. The
gardens are open daily from 9 a.m.
to 5 p.m., except during Christmas.
and the museum is open daily from
10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. For informa-
tion, go to www.leu.org or
call 407-246-2620.

If you like live music, fairs and fun
events in general then I hope you
will make this new column a habit.
It's all about who's playing at what
club, where the big dance is, when will
the fairs begin and where to take the


family for a fun time.
I am counting on readers,
club owners and local
bands to help make it a
success. Your input, via e-
mail and phone, will be
my source for information
that I will gladly pass along
to the public.

For instance, you still have a few
days to visit our Charlotte County Fair,
at the fairgrounds on State Road 776
across from the Charlotte Sports Park.
You can take in the rides, fair food and
two entertaining animals shows -
featuring everything from tigers to
dogs that the kids should love.
And, we can't ignore the Florida
State Fair which also runs through
Monday in Tampa at the fairgrounds
on U.S. 301.
If you're looking to dance this
weekend then you might want to check
out the M Club at the House of Prime
on Tamiami Trail in Port Charlotte. Two
local bands headline the weekend with
the Crashers scheduled to play Friday
night and the popular Brown Suga
booked for Saturday's Valentine's event.
Speaking of Brown Suga, the M
Club audience coaxed two of its


members to the stage last Wednesday
night during the Motown show by
Verceal Whitaker and Wilson Williams.
Those Wednesday night shows are
gathering steam now that the word is
out about the great music these two
pros are belting out each week.
There are numerous
Hackin' opportunities to catch live
Around music in the area. One of
By the more popular, and
John longest-standing venues
Hackworth is Harpoon Harry's in
Fishermen's Village in
Punta Gorda. This weekend
Harpoons is offering a special
dinner/dance with drinks, entree,
dessert and appetizer along with
music by local favorites the Boo-
giemen on both Friday and Saturday
nights. You can call Harpoons or check
out the Web site,
www.harpoonharrys.com for more
information.
And, finally, something a little
different. At 10 a.m. Sunday you can
catch inspirational cowboy artist
Danny Ray Harris at the Turner Center
in Arcadia.
The special Valentine's Day concert
is in conjunction with Cowboy-Up
Ministry.
That's all I have for this week, but I
know there is more. I just need to hear
from you.
Call me at 941-206-1147 or e-mail
me at jhackworth8@gmail.com.

'Reflections' takes a musical look the '60s


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Newly opened in Florida Studio
Theatre's Goldstein Cabaret
Theatre is "Reflections," a
nostalgic look at the 60s.
Featuring Broadway performers Job
Christenson and Robert Fowler plus
New Yorker actresses Melissa Fleming
and Natalie Renee, the two-act musical
review was created inhouse at FST by


FST Artistic Director Richard Hopkins,
Managing Director Rebecca Langford
and Resident Pianist Jim Prosser.
Directed and choreographed by Bill
Castellino, the delightful music show-
cases the combined voices of the four
singer/dancers while also showcasing
their individual strengths.
Robert Fowler has an ingratiating
smile and stage presence that nearly
steals the show especially with his


Stevie Wonder song, "Living for the
City."
Natalie Renee nearly got a standing
ovation for her delivery of the Nina
Simone hit "Feeling Good" and Melissa
Fleming scored on "Heat Wave," backed
up by the rest of the cast.
Longtime FST costumer has moved
to Houston but freelancer Nicole Wee
rose to the occasion with such 60s
attire as Jackie Kennedy shift dresses


for the women, a black damask suit for
Fowler and a piped jacket with a
Beatles look for Christenson.
Prosser was delightful on the piano.
"Reflections" continues through
March 20 in the Goldstein Cabaret,
1241 N. Palm Ave., Sarasota. Tickets
are $19-$29 per person. For perfor-
mance times and tickets, call 941-366-
9000 or visit

"Lend Me


a Tenor' opens at The Players


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Northeastern Ohioans may enjoy
a nostalgic romp back in time to
Cleveland, circa the 1930s, at
The Players, where "Lend Me a Tenor"
opens on Thursday.
Written by Ken Ludwig, this classic
farce features The Players Artistic
Director Jeffery Kin as Mad Max, the
assistant to the manager of the Cleve-
land Grand Opera Company. When


Mad Max ends up having to stand in
for Tito Morelli, who is billed as "the
greatest tenor of his generation," the
zaniness begins.
Kin was last on stage at The Players
in "Nine" during the 2007 season,
although he has written such shows as
this season's "Red Hot Operetta" and
directed "A Country Christmas Carol"
in December.
"My job as artistic director is time
consuming and challenging, but I can't


ever forget my acting roots," Kin said.
His fellow cast members include
Andrea Kinal, Berry Ayers, Bob Tris-
solini, Kaylene McCaw, Toph McRae,
Lilian Moore, and Patti O'Berg.
"Lend Me a Tenor" is directed by
Roberta MacDonald of the Golden
Apple Dinner Theatre, where she has
appeared in such roles as "Mame," and
the Mother Superior in "Nunsense"and
starred in and/or directed other shows.
"Lend Me a Tenor" continues through


Feb. 21, evenings at 8 p.m., except
opening night (7:30 p.m.) and Sundays
at 2 p.m. Tickets are $23 for adults and
$12 for students.
Tickets are $23 for adults and $12 for
students. Visit www.theplayers.org or
call the box office at 941-365-2494.
The Players is at 838 North Tamiami
Trail, Sarasota.
Watch for "Fiddler on the Roof"
March 18-28 and "The Who's Tommy"
April 22-May 2.


Laughter reigns in Pinkerton Theatre FEELIhNG CAMPED?
Get rid of theclutter.


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Venice Theatre offers a six-pack of
fun in its Pinkerton Theatre cabaret
where "Mid-Life! the Crisis Musical"
will play through Feb. 28.
The book, music and lyrics by Bob
Walton and Jim Walton are terrific but the
delivery is what makes it so good. The six-
pack is the cast: Steven Flaa (member of
Actors Equity), Daniel Greene, Joseph
Giglia, Linda Mounce, Laurie Colton and
Bobbi Eschenbach. Together and sepa-
rately, they deliver a plethora of one-liners
and zingers camouflaged as songs and
embellished with choreography and facial
expressions as the clock ticks off the
decades associated with middle age. From
menopause to Lasik surgery to trips to the
doctor, nothing is sacred nor ignored
subject-wise as the laughter escalates,


with nary a pause.
Dan Greene always delivers. This time
he did it with just two weeks of rehearsal
as a last-minute sub.
Laurie Colton had some of the most
outlandish scenarios to present and did it
with ease.
The six have great voices, tons of
experience and work well together. With
sets and direction by Allan Kollar, choreog-
raphy by Kelly Burnette, sound by Dorian
Boyd and Nicholas Hartman's costuming
(especially the men's sports outfits)
"Midlife" is outrageously funny.
Music director Deidre Reigel is the
onstage pianist for the entire show and
also is the show's musical director.
Venice Theatre is at 140 W. Tampa Ave.,
Venice. Tickets are $24 for adults and $12
for students. Visit www.venicestage.com or

Opera opens with double bill


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
From the lilting music of the Pietro
Mascagni's "Cavalleria Rusti-
cana" overture to the dramatic
deadly climax of Ruggero Leoncaval-
lo's "Pagliacci," Sarasota Opera
provided a feast for eyes and ears on
opening night of its winter season,
Feb. 6.
Love and betrayal and tragic end-
ings are the stuff of opera, especially
these two.
The first takes place on Easter
Sunday and the second on the Feast
of the Assumption. Several children
from the youth opera have onstage
roles that add to the holiday spirit and
counterbalance the dramatic stories.
Maestro Victor DeRenzi leads the


orchestra for both operas and his wife,
Stephanie Sundine is the stage
director. There is one half-hour inter-
mission between the two operas.
Aundi Marie Moore was especially
delightful as Nedda, the traveling
actress in "Pagliacci" and Gustavo
Lopez Manzitti was a fine match as
her husband, in both voice and action.
His rendition of "Pagliacci" opening
night was truly as beautiful as the
overture to the opening opera, provid-
ing lovely music as a counterbalance
to the violence.
This twin bill continues in repertory
through March 21 with the season's
three additional offerings. For tickets,
which range upward from $19, visit
www.sarasotaopera.org or call the box
office at 941-366-8450.

Bartender

of the WEEK



Amanda Bill


Goal Post

SUN PHOTO BY SHARE DERRICKSON
Amanda Bill prepares the "perfectly-
made" pink cosmopolitan at the Goal
Post. The 21-year-old was recently
promoted to assistant manager.

BY SHARE DERRICKSON
SUN CORRESPONDENT
WAhile many young adults are
still trying to figure out their
lives, 21-year-old Amanda
Bill has already achieved much. After
graduating from Charlotte High
School, she began bartending at the
Goal Post in Port Charlotte as a way
to make money to further her
education.
During this time, Bill became a
licensed makeup artist and aestheti-
cian. "I can do basic skin care and
can work for any local spas or
salons."
Her love of esthetics got her
interested in other areas of art. Soon,
she will graduate from the Art Institute
as an interior designer. "There is
much more to interior design than
people think. It is not decorating, but
designing the functionality of a home
while making is pleasing to the eye."
"I am kind of a romantic. I like the
shabby chic look," she said. "When I


Rumble on the River III


PROVIDED BY BIG TIME
WRESTLING


start my own business, I will focus on
that."
But the go-getter's accomplish-
ments don't stop there. She was
recently asked to be an assistant
manager at the Goal Post.
"It will be a challenge once school
becomes a little harder," Bill said,
adding she is up for a challenge.
The bar business is in her blood.
"My father was a bar manager so I
went to him to get tips on a couple
things, but mostly, I learned by
experience. I picked it up pretty quick."
She said she intends on staying
with the Goal Post until she relocates
to start her own interior design
business. "I love the job and the
people I work with."
Bill's bartending tip: "Most people
don't know how to make a really good
Cosmo. Many people put in too much
cranberry juice and the secret is to
use Citron Vodka and make sure it to
add fresh squeezed lime, not lemon,
and that is a twist, not a wedge."

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


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


The Book of Eli (R) A-
In the not-too-distant future, across
the wasteland of what once was
America, a lone warrior (Washington)
must fight to bring civilization the
knowledge that could be the key to its
redemption and save the future of humanity.


Dear John (PG-13) B+
When a soldier named John Tyree
(Channing Tatum) meets an idealistic
college student named Savannah
Curtis (Amanda Seyfried), it's the
beginning of a true romance. Over the
next seven tumultuous years, the
lovers, separated by John's increasingly
dangerous deployment, stay in touch
through their letters, meeting in person
only rarely. However, their correspon-
dence triggers fateful consequences
that neither could foresee.


Edge of Darkness (R) B-
As detective Thomas Craven (Mel
Gibson) is investigating his activist
daughter's murder he uncovers a
corporate cover up along with govern-
ment collusion that brings the unwant-
ed attention of an agent whose job is
cleaning up evidence of a crime.


Extraordinary Measures
(PG) C
John Crowley (Brendan Fraser) is a
man on the corporate fast-track, with a
beautiful wife (Keri Russell) and three
children. Just as his career is taking off,
his two youngest children are diag-
nosed with a fatal disease. John leaves
his job and devotes himself to saving
their lives. He joins forces with Dr.
Robert Thornhill (Harrison Ford), a
brilliant but unconventional scientist.
Together the two men battle the
medical and business establishments
as they race against time to find a cure.


A low-ranking intelligence operative
(Jonathan Rhys Meyers) working in the
office of the U.S. Ambassador in France
takes on more than he bargained for
when he partners with a wisecracking,
fast-shooting, high-ranking U.S. agent
(John Travolta) who's been sent to
Paris to stop a terrorist attack.


It's Complicated (R) B
Jane (Streep) is the mother of three
grown kids, owns a thriving Santa
Barbara bakery/restaurant and has-
after a decade of divorce-an amicable
relationship with her ex-husband,
attorney Jake (Baldwin). But when Jane
and Jake find themselves out of town
for their son's college graduation, things
start to get complicated. An innocent
meal together turns into the unimagin-
able-an affair. With Jake remarried to
the much younger Agness (Lake Bell),
Jane is now, of all things, the other
woman.

For now, The Loft at 502 King Street
in Punta Gorda is keeping things
pretty simple with a modest menu
and simple entertainment. After all, it
only opened in late November.

opened in 1919, proved to be the perfect
location with its exposed air ducts and
garage-like ambiance.

The sandwiches have been very suc-

The bar sells many brands of beer on
tap and even has their own specialty
brew.

while living in Pennsylvania and who
worked at Fernandez's and Martha's

"We're trying to make it a launching

grass and blues jam every week."
Among the acts either coming or who
have come are Mike Imbasciani, a 13-
year-old guitar whiz, and Heather Lee, a
singer in the Cheryl Crow mode.
The Loft has been a huge hit with the
locals who see it as yet another lively
place to go at night on the outer fringe of
downtown.
