Dearybury

injured in

car crash

BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR

Ruth Ann Dearybury, 68, of
Venice, and her aunt, Eugenia
Dixon, 77, ofWashington, D.C.,
were headed to Key West
across the Seven Mile Bridge
when they were involved in an
crash that shut down the
bridge for four hours on
Thursday.
Dearybury was badly injur-
ed and her aunt died of a heart
attack after the crash.
At 3:57 p.m. Elizabeth Ann
Overstreet, 24, of Marathon,
was driving a Florida Fish and
Wildlife Service SUV towing a
boat northbound on the
bridge when she lost control of
the SUV swerved across lanes
and struck the right front of
Dearybury's van. The SUV
caught fire and the boat came
off the trailer and struck Paul
Brian Ciceri's 2003 Saturn.
Overstreet's passenger, Jeff-
rey D. Simonds, 31, of Mara-
thon died in the crash.
Dearybury told her daugh-
ters, Sheila and Daphne, that
several men on scene helped
extract her and Dixon from
their seats, pulling them out
the back of the van as the fire
was engulfing the SUV One
man told her he would not
leave without her despite the
uncontrolled fire.
Dearybury was airlifted to
the Ryder Trauma Center at
Jackson Memorial Hospital in
Miami, where she remains in
intensive care.
Her aunt had been walking
around the scene of the crash,
but according to Dearybury's
friend Peaches Haas, after the
helicopter came back for her,
she had a heart attack and died
en route to the hospital.

State looking for World War II waste


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

The South County Family
YMCA's Preschool on the
Island sits atop one of the
sites the federal government
is testing for hazardous waste.
The Environmental Pro-
tection Agency hired the state
of Florida to test for under-
ground hazardous waste con-
tamination on portions of the
Venice Army Airfield that was
long ago turned into residen-
tial areas.
MACTEC Engineering and
Consulting of Tallahassee,
hired by the Florida De-
partment of Environmental
Protection, Bureau of Waste
Cleanup, came into Venice
this week to begin drilling
temporary wells to test
groundwater and to test the
soil in eight areas the govern-
ment calls "areas of concern,"
or AOCs.


Among the areas being 9
sampled are a borrow pit, a
crash dump, one former
motor pool area in the Gulf
Shores neighborhood west of
Harbor Drive, two former gas
stations near Airport Avenue,
two more former motor pools
currently occupied by the
YMCA day-care facility on
Venice Presbyterian Church
property, Holiday Condomin-
iums, the city-owned Venice
Trailer Park, Village On The
Isle and a former machine
gun range where Maxine
Barritt Park is under con-
struction.
"I don't think residents
should be concerned at this
time," said DEP geologist Jim
McCarthy, leader of the
Venice site investigation.
"Remember, this was 65 years
ago. A lot of that material -
oil, gas, solvents would

Free mooring ends at Venice boat ramp


Landowners owed for trail


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


The Higel Marine Park boat
ramp, which for years was a
favorite dock for sailboat cruis-
ers along the Gulf Coast, will
soon be closed overnight.
Venice City Council on
Tuesday, Feb. 23, voted unani-
mously on first reading to dis-
card the existing rule allowing
boaters to dock for up to 18-
hours in a 10-day period in
favor of a new ordinance that
closes the ramp from midnight


to 6 a.m. The ordinance brings
the Higel boat ramp in line
with other county and city
boat ramps.
Final reading of the new
ordinance takes place March
9, at which time the ordinance
goes into effect.
Council members said
some kind of emergency order
would apply, allowing boaters
safe harbor until a city-deter-
mined emergency is lifted.
The ordinance kills two
birds with one stone.
City staff came up with the


idea after speaking with local
marina owners. The city
received no responses from a
"request for qualifications"
sent out two years ago to find a
vendor willing to serve as har-
bor master for a planned
mooring field. A state Depart-
ment of Environmental Pro-
tection permit requires a har-
bor master to oversee the
mooring field. Without one,
the harbor plan can't be imple-
mented.

A federal judge has ruled
some plaintiffs in the Legacy
Trail easement dispute have
established a "taking" and are
owed compensation.
U.S. Court of Federal Claims
Court Judge Mary Ellen Coster
Williams ruled in favor of
homeowners and a number of
Venice area country clubs that
say the government took their
property illegally without
compensation to create Leg-
acy Trail Park.


The recreational trail con-
nects Sarasota withVenice.
"It's a big victory," said attor-
ney Thor Hearne, with Arent
Fox in Washington D.C. "Every-
body who has made a claim is
entitled to compensation with
the sole exception of the own-
ers of properties south of Curry
Creek."

Groups see no gray on school tax issue


BY CHRISTINE HAWES
SUN
CORRESPONDENT

Dueling Web sites.
Back and forth accusa-
tions of misinformation.
Questioning of motives.
These are the defin-
ing characteristics of the
debate in Sarasota Coun-
ty over the March 16 spe-
cial referendum election.
The school district is ask-
ing residents to extend
the 1-mill school tax
that county voters have
approved twice before,
in 2002 and 2006.
The 1-mill tax adds
$1 per $1,000 of taxable
value to a nonhome-
steaded property owner's
tax bill.
In Sarasota County,
the current average
assessed value of a
home is $165,000. With
a homestead exemption,
under this assessment a
homeowner would pay
$140 annually, or about
38 cents a day, toward
education.
School board mem-
bers and staffers, who
have been making the
case for approval of the
school tax extension at
public meetings and
speeches since last fall,
insist they are simply
looking out for the good
of students. They are
supported by a group
called Citizens for Better
Schools www.sarasota
cbs.com. They have
received resolutions or
statements of support
from the North Port City
Commission and the
Greater Sarasota Cham-
ber of Commerce, and
the Sarasota Classified-
Teachers Association.
Opponents of the ref-
erendum, who have been
pressing their own ver-
sion of Sarasota schools
budget and student per-
formance, say they are
simply following the gov-
ernment watchdog wave
that has been sweeping
across the nation for the
past 18 months as the
overall economy suffers.
They are led by
Englewood resident Walt
Augustinowicz, include
the Venice Taxpayers
League and are support-
ed by the group Better
Sarasota Schools for Less
- www.bettersarasota
schools.com.
Debates between the
two camps cover con-
struction funding and
spending, teacher salaries,


hiring and firing policies,
and space utilization.
Their main differ-
ences involve their views
of the district's quality of
instruction and its finan-
cial behavior in recent
years. What follows is a
look at those two broad
categories.
Have previous referen-
dum dollars made a dif-
ference in Sarasota
County public schools?
This is the crux of
referendum supporters'
press for approval of the
extended school tax: the
firm conviction that ref-
erendum dollars over
the past eight years have
helped Sarasota County
become one of Florida's
top-performing school
districts.
School Board Chair
Shirley Brown pointed
out that Sarasota County
is 23 points ahead of
Florida's average score in
SAT reading scores, 26
points ahead of the state
in math scores and 21
points ahead in writing.
Brown, using research
compiled by the district's
financial advisory com-
mittee, also said the dis-
trict has succeeded in
"closing the gap" between
white and black students'
scores on the Florida
Comprehensive Assess-
ment Test, or FCAT, by
using referendum dollars
to hire reading and data
coaches, guidance coun-


selors and other key per-
sonnel.
The financial advisory
committee determined
that Sarasota County is
among Florida's top 10
schools for FCAT scores,
with 95 percent of its ele-
mentary schools and 86
percent of its middle
schools holding "A" rank-
ings, and 84 percent of all
schools boasting of"A" or
"B" rankings.
Augustinowicz said
the most telling indicator
of how Sarasota County
schools are doing is FCAT
scoring for 10th-graders,
because they have been
in the school district
since before referendum
funding began in 2002.
In 2001, Augustinowicz
pointed out, 50 percent
of that student group
performed at grade level
in FCAT reading. In 2009,
only 43 percent of the
same group performed
at grade level.
That's also the case, he
said, about the group
now in sixth grade: 62
percent tested at grade
level in reading in 2004,
and 44 percent tested at
grade level in 2009.
"The longer they're in
Sarasota schools, the
worse they do," Augustin-
owicz said. "You've got to
wonder why."
Richard Swier, a con-
servative blogger in Sara-
sota and former school
board candidate, is also


a key opponent of the
school tax. He scoffed at
claims that Sarasota
County is an "A" district
(graded by the state).
Also pointing only to
10th-grade FCAT scores,
Swier said 57 percent of
Sarasota students are
below grade level in
reading and science, 27
percent are below in
math and 25 percent are
below in writing.
"If you graded it hon-
estly using the FCAT,
sadly, the highest score
that we could give our
school system is in the
range of'D' or perhaps a
'D+,' Swier said. "That's
not something I say in a
happy way. I have two
grandchildren in Sara-
sota County schools, and
I want to make sure they
get the best education
possible."
Has the school district
been truly thrifty with
its regular revenues,
and has it made sub-
stantial cuts?
Referendum oppo-
nents claim school board
members and staffers
are misleading the pub-
lic when talking about
$83 million in budget
reductions over the past
three years.
Augustinowicz cited
numbers he said were
provided to him by Al
Weidner, the district's
deputy chief financial
officer, that show an


increase in the district's
operating budget from
$400 million in 2006 to
$404 million this year.
Weidner said a more
relevant comparison is
between this year and
2007, when property val-
ues, and therefore prop-
erty tax revenue, began
dropping. He also said
Augustinowicz is using
this year's approved bud-
get rather than actual
projected spending.
When those two
adjustments are made,
Weidner says, the district
has made actual cuts of
$35 million, from $420
million in 2007 to $385
million this year. The
remaining budget reduc-
tions consist of cost
avoidance, such as carry-
ing $47 million of prop-
erty insurance rather
than $120 million, and
dropping subsidies to
employees for depen-
dent health coverage.
"The opponents are
trying to make it sound
like we just sit over here
spending left and right
and haven't been mak-
ing any adjustments,"
Weidner said. "If we
hadn't made any adjust-
ments and were just
doing business as usual,
our budget would be
way above what it is
right now."
Weidner said a com-
plete rundown of "actual
cuts and cost avoidance"


is available at the school
district's Web site at www.
sarasotacountyschools.
net.
Further, projections
indicate that state fund-
ing for education will
drop 6 percent, or $20
million, next year.
"I really think anyone
who is aware of the cuts
that the state has made
in education the previ-
ous two years is also
aware of how the Sara-
sota County School Dis-
trict is operating with a
bare skeleton right now
as far as cuts are con-
cerned," Board Members
Kathy Kleinlein said.
"Any more cuts, and
we're going to have to
make program cuts, and
that's when you're going
to the heart of student
achievement."
Augustinowiz said the
problem is that the school
board spent too much
money before the eco-
nomic downturn began
and trapped itself by
becoming reliant on the
referendum and stimulus
funds.
"What's happened is
they kept the millage
high even when our real
estate was booming,
when they should have
been cutting it back," he
said. "They shouldn't
have spent all of that
boom money and could
have had more when
this drops back."

Students to get involved in referendum battle


BY CAITLYN GREENE
SUN CORRESPONDENT


Venice High School sopho-
more Amanda Barratt is wor-
ried that if the upcoming
school tax referendum fails,
she'll be unable to take classes
at State College of Florida next
year.
Under the dual-enrollment
program, Venice students can
earn college credits while still
in high school. As of now, the
program is free to high school
students. It allows them to
reduce the cost of their col-
lege education because they
can complete up to two years
of their coursework while still
in high school.
Barratt has cause to be be
worried, according to Jim
Clinch, a representative of
Citizens for Better Schools
who spoke to Venice High
School students Thursday
evening.
"If it is not passed, dual
enrollment will definitely be
impacted," Clinch said.
Students from the high
school and Venice Middle
School, as well as representa-
tives of sports teams, clubs and
organizations, attended the
meeting.

Jim Clinch of Citizens for Better Schools goes over basic information
about the upcoming March 16 referendum for Sarasota County
Schools at a meeting at Venice High School.


Clinch told them the March
16 referendum will not create a
new tax.
"In 2002, Sarasota County
residents decided that they
didn't just want an average
school system," he said, "so a
tax referendum was voted on
then and taxes were raised.
This referendum has passed
every time citizens have voted
on it."
The tax was renewed by
voters for the first time in


2006.
This year, however, many
people are opposing the plan,
Clinch said.
"Many people say, 'I don't
have kids in the school sys-
tem,' and don't want to sup-
port it," he said. "But it's
about the quality of life in
Sarasota County, the educa-
tion of the work force and the
quality of school system,
which affects the real estate
market."


m I ItI


Not enough
The income from the refer-
endum helps pay teachers and
principals, puts equipment in
classrooms and pays for other
operational necessities, Clinch
said.
As a result of previous refer-
endums, Sarasota County now
has the second-highest-paid
teachers in the state. But,
Clinch said, they still make less
than the national average even
though 63 percent of teachers
in Sarasota County have at
least a master's degree.
"The state does not spend
enough money on education,"
he said, "Florida now ranks
47th in educational standards
in the United States."
Clinch said if the referen-
dum does not pass, an addi-
tional $38 million will be cut
from the budget next year and
another $48 million the follow-
ing year in addition to the $73
million cut from the school
system in the last 24 months.
Another 500 positions also
will be cut, he said. Students
potentially could have to
start paying for extracurricu-
lar sports, Advanced Place-
ment classes, music classes
and art classes.

CRASH from Page 1A
Recovery expected
Haas saw Dearybury Friday morn-
ing. She updated friends on
Dearybury's condition via e-mail:
"Ruthann is seriously injured and in
intensive care. Her left arm is broken
and in a cast. Her nose and some facial
bones are broken. Her eyes are black
and blue, but OK, though the left one
was swollen shut at the time. She has
several stitches in her face and much
bruising. Extensive surgery was per-
formed on Ruthann's right leg, and
there will be several more surgeries to
the leg in the future. In fact, they will be
doing surgery on Wednesday and
Thursday."
Dearybury's daughters are with her
at the hospital. Her recovery is expected
to be a long one, but a successful one.
In an e-mail to friends, her daugh-
ters wrote: "She has already undergone


BOATfrom Page 1A


one long surgery to start reconstructing
her face, put a plate in her lower arm
and stabilize her broken leg. She will
need several more surgeries so we
expect her to be here in the trauma cen-
ter for at least a couple of weeks."
Dearybury's left elbow, right knee,
leg and sternum were also broken.
Those who would like to send cards
to her may do so at:

Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital,

"We will let folks know as soon as
Mom is able to receive visitors or speak
on the phone (may be some time
though)," the girls wrote.
As long as she is in intensive care,
she cannot receive flowers. Once she is
moved to a room, the girls will let
friends know the room number.

on site. The corps reported no evidence
of unsafe debris, hazardous or toxic
wastes or unexploded ordinance. But
no environmental restoration project
was conducted due to limited funding.
A screening assessment was con-
duced in August 2003 after some docu-
ments were declassified and released to
the Venice Archives who notified DEP
DEP conducted a preliminary assess-
ment in June 2009, and recommended
the inclusion of the site on the EPAs list
of Superfund sites, according to the
work plan. Recently declassified engi-
neering drawings (date unknown)
showing the electrical supply system to
various buildings helped government
officials locate the potential waste sites.
Concerns
McCarthy said the six-year lag was
partly due to lack of funding and partly
the workload. He said there are 1,300
DEP sites currently listed in Florida,
and 3,000 or more in the rest of the
southwest region.
It's a major point of contention for
Don Mason, president of the Sentinel
Condo Association and its 40 condo
owners. Sentinel's property is the site of
one of the former gas station tanks and
pump areas.
When the condo association was
asked by the DEP to sign a release to
allow the testing, Mason said he balked.
He wanted assurance that anything it
finds has to be dug up and removed at
government expense. DEP refused the
request, said it needed the release
immediately and threatened to levy a
fine of $37,500 per day for noncompli-
ance. Mason signed under protest and
hired an attorney.
"They don't want to give anybody
relief in writing," he said. "My concern
is if they find something, they usually
try to get the homeowner to pay for it.
"This has been going on 70 years and
they can't take another few months" for
property owners to explore the implica-
tions? "I just don't like the way the
whole thing was handled."
Affected residents have been
assured that if any hazardous waste is
found, public meetings will be held.
"I can assure you that if the results
show that this site warrants further
Superfund action such as a cleanup
action, we will have a public meeting in
the community," said Barbara Alfano,
project manager for the Superfund,
remedial and site evaluation branch, of
EPA Region 4, in a letter to Mason.
Samples
Approximately 31 soil borings will
result in 68 soil samples, with an addi-
tional 10 sediment samples taken from
the borrow pit.
Sixteen temporary wells will be
drilled and 38 groundwater samples
collected. In addition, 18 residential

irrigation wells will be tested for various

of the city's wells are within two miles of

Staff contacted local marinas to ask
why they didn't apply. The city was told
the free mooring was an issue. The
spaces could be a source of income for
a potential vendor. If the ordinance is
changed, at least one of the marinas
said they would apply, according to
Venice City Engineer Kathleen Weeden.
Venice Marine Officer Phil Phillips
said the 18-hour rule is essentially
impossible to police since it would
require an officer to man the ramp full
time to mark down the times for each
boat that arrives and departs.
Up to five boats have been seen stay-
ing overnight, some of them for multi-
ple evenings.
The original intent was for use as a
ramp to load and unload boats. The
overnighters sometimes interfere with
that use, Weeden said.
Plenty of dockage is available in the
immediate area, Phillips testified,
including The Crow's Nest, Marker 4
and MarineMax. They each charge
$2.20 and up per foot per night for a
vessel.


"Boaters need to be understanding
of our situation and go to a location and
pay," Phillips said.
"We're not trying to run people off
the dock, just trying to gain control."
Garbage pickup
In other news, city council dropped
the idea of switching from twice weekly
residential garbage pickup to once-a-
week pickup at least for the time
being.
City Manager Isaac Turner said the
move could eliminate one or two, pos-
sibly three positions, for a savings of
$150,000.
Council Member Jim Bennett said
the idea of eliminating existing posi-
tions in the current economy is a cause
for concern.
Council Member Kit McKeon said he
wanted to go slow with the idea, and
perhaps bring it up again during bud-
get deliberations when a more holistic
approach to city cost-cutting measures
is considered.

OWED from Page 1A


mid-January the judge
issued a new ruling say-
ing the deed was suffi-
cient to prove ownership,
according to Hearne.
Bird Bay Executive
Golf Club Inc. filed the
lawsuit, affecting 21
parcels of land owned by
30 named plaintiffs. An-
other suit, brought by
Stephen and Linda Rog-
ers and 19 other land-
owners, involves 13 par-
cels of land. The suits
were combined in feder-
al court.
Hearne submitted sup-
plemental briefs request-
ed by the judge a few days
ago, he said, regarding
Bird Bay and other prop-
erties south of Curry
Creek.
Hearne said he antici-
pates the same outcome
for those property own-


ers.
"I am comfortable
with our position. The
weight of that authority
(judge's ruling) supports
our view the property
owners own the land,"
Hearne said.
Meanwhile, Hearne
has begun seeking ap-
praisers to determine
how much compensa-
tion the property owners
should receive.
Appraisal reports from
both sides are due on
April 15.
"Then we will ex-
change reports," Hearne
said. "If we're close ...
we'll settle. If not, then it's
taken to arbitration."
The landowners ar-
gued that prior owners of
their properties granted
easements to the Sea-
board Air Line Railway


for the sole purpose of
operating a railroad.
Once the property was
no longer used for rail-
road operations, they
said, the easements
expired. The government
argued it owned the land.
The case involves
strips of land, mostly
along the back edge of
businesses on the Sea-
board side of the Intra-
coastal Waterway in
Venice running up across
Hatchett and Curry
creeks. Other easements
on the island run along
U.S. 41 Business from
Venice Elementary School
past the Hatchett Creek
Bridge.
A final ruling is antici-
pated by May

9-1-1 bill supported by Senate committee


BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER

As high winds delayed his
flight to Tallahassee, Nathan
Lee received a text message
from a friend already in the 8
a.m. state Senate hearing:
"Where are you?"
Lee rushed from the airport
Thursday to the Committee on
Health Regulation hearing. He
arrived as public comment for
Senate Bill 742, sponsored by
Sen. Nancy Detert, R-Venice,
was wrapping up.
Lee, the founder of the De-
nise Amber Lee Foundation,
had his chance to speak in
support of a 9-1-1 bill funding
higher training standards and
certification of public safety


operators and dispatchers.
Lee created the foundation
after his 21-year-old wife, De-
nise, was kidnapped at gun-
point from their North Port
home and killed in January
2008. After five 9-1-1 calls from
family, witnesses and Denise
herself regarding her where-
abouts, no one could find the
missing mother of two. Her
remains were unearthed near
a wooded area along Toledo
Blade Boulevard the same
road where eyewitness Jane
Kowalski had told a Charlotte
County sheriff's 9-1-1 call taker
she last saw the Camaro be-
longing to Denise's abductor,
Michael King. The call taker
never sent deputies to the
scene.


According to Lee, the Senate
bill an amendment to last
year's Denise Amber Lee Act
creating statewide standards
and training certifications for
9-1-1 operators and dispatch-
ers will give operators and
dispatchers the "tools and
training" needed to better pro-
tect citizens.
"We were very well received
up here," Lee said. "Everyone
was really supportive."
More work
The bill was passed unani-
mously by the seven-member
committee. It continues on to
three other Senate commit-
tees.
North Port City Commis-
sion Chair David Garofalo, a


foundation board member,
also spoke at Thursday's hear-
ing.
"I explained that citizen
safety is paramount," he said.
"As a (Pasco County) fire cap-
tain, if I give the wrong med-
ication, I have to come before a
board and can be disciplined.
They can revoke my license.
Shouldn't it be the same for 9-
1-1 operators? If their actions
cause a life to be lost, there
should be some accountabili-
ty. An agency shouldn't be able
to cover it up.
The proposed bill would
make operators complete a 232-
hour 9-1-1 public safety tele-
communication training pro-
gram and pass an examination.
Earlier in the week, mem-


bers of the House Health Care
Regulation Policy Committee
passed a similar bill known as
"Enhanced 9-1-1," or E9-1-1. It
was sponsored by state Rep.
Ken Roberson, R-Port Char-
lotte. That version will go to
three other House committees.
A final version of the bill will
eventually be voted on by the
full Legislature.
Roberson said a 9-1-1 user
fee 50 cents per telephone
user is already being collect-
ed on phones. Money for train-
ing should come from this
fund, he said.
If a bill passes, the new
training standards and other
changes would begin Oct. 1,
2011.

Veterans in justice system to get special attention Tax help available


Some returning National Guard are going from combat
to back on the streets in 72 hours.


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER


Military personnel who served
their country in the Vietnam War
were not well served when they
came back from overseas, espe-
cially in the court system, accord-
ing to 12th Circuit Court Judge Lee
Haworth, a veteran himself.
For that reason, the Sarasota
County Criminal Justice Com-
mission already is preparing for
Haworth's expected "reverse
surge" of troops returning home
from Afghanistan and Iraq. The
goal of the Courts Assisting
Veterans Program, Haworth said
during Monday's CJC monthly
meeting, is early identification of
veterans who have entered the jus-
tice system and have combat-
related illnesses.
Early identification, the CJC
chair said, would enable "veterans
to have the opportunity to avail
themselves of (local) services."
Rich Swier, president of the
Sarasota County Veterans Com-


mission, said there are about
50,000 military veterans living in
Sarasota County. In December, he
said, about 5,500 men and women
from the Florida Army National
Guard the 53rd "Gator" Brigade
Combat Team deployed in sup-
port of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Swier said when regular mili-
tary return home, they come back
to a support system of other mili-
tary. The return home, however, "is
especially stressful to National
Guard (troops)," he said.
"National Guard troops are put
straight back into the economy,"
Swier said. They are plumbers,
doctors and others with routine
jobs "going from combat and 72
hours (later) are back on the
streets."
"It's an amazing transition," he
said.
Haworth said during a Jan. 25
CJC meeting that there were prob-
lems in the 1970s as courts dealt
with Vietnam veterans.
As designed, the CAVP "will
offer special handling to veterans


who come back with mental
health or substance abuse prob-
lems," members of the CJC agreed
during that meeting.
"We're not looking for a 'get out
of jail card,' Swier said.
As part of the program, the 12th
Circuit Court will ask the sheriffs in
the three counties it covers -
Sarasota, DeSoto and Manatee -
to identify veterans with those
problems and divert the cases to
appropriate programs as early as
possible. The court also is asking
the public defender's and state
attorney's offices to assist in the
program.
So far, the veterans commission
has been asked only to provide
mentors to the program.
"We'll do whatever (Haworth)
wants us to do," Swier said. "We
can't allow this (program) to go
away."
Currently, the CAVP is looking
for a case manager, with a prefer-
ence for a veteran, to help guide
veterans through the program. A
grant from Gulf Coast Community
Foundation ofVenice is underwrit-
ing the position's salary.

... the extension of the
first-time home buyer
credit through April,
should see these sales
numbers continuing to
grow.

Gather your unwanted trea-
sures we're having a yard
sale at the Venice Area Board of
Realtors office to benefit our
local student scholarship fund.
We have awarded close to
$200,000 to worthy recipients
since we started the scholar-
ship program more than 20
years ago. In fact, the board
consistently presents more
scholarships than any other
organization at the annual
high school awards program.
Bring your items to the
office, 680 Substation Road, on
Thursday, Feb. 25, and Friday,
Feb. 26, between 9 a.m. and 5
p.m. The sale will be on Sat-
urday, Feb. 27, from 8 to 11
a.m. Help our local graduating
seniors. They are our future.
Plan ahead: We are holding
our first-ever Venice Green
Living Expo on Saturday, April
10, at Centennial Park from 10
a.m. to 4 p.m. Come and learn


about energy efficiency and
check out the many sources for
green materials. Several ven-
dors will be on hand as well as
speakers.
Our first Venice Green 5K
Run/Walk and Fun Run (pet
friendly) will be held on Sun-
day, April 18, at 9 a.m. starting
at the comer of Harbor Drive
and Beach Road. Cost is $20 for
adults and $10 for those
younger than 18.
All proceeds from these two
"green" events will go toward
our Habitat House. Call the of-
fice at 484-0614 for a registra-
tion form.
On a business note, statis-
tics recently released by the
Florida Association of Realtors
indicate that the sale of exist-
ing single-family homes in
Florida rose 44 percent in the
fourth quarter of 2009 com-
pared to the same period a
year earlier. This is the sixth
consecutive quarter that Flor-
ida has seen higher existing
year-to-year home sales.
Statewide sales of existing
condominiums in the fourth
quarter rose 93 percent com-
pared to the same time in 2008.
This marks the fifth consecu-
tive quarter for increased
statewide sales in both existing
home and condo markets
compared to year-ago levels.
Low mortgage rates, coupled
with the extension of the first-
time home buyer credit
through April, should see these
sales numbers continuing to
grow.
This is good news and a
positive indicator that our
Florida economy is slowly but
surely recovering.
Gae Stewart is president of
the Venice Area Board of
Realtors.

Sales improving
There's good news about
residential sales for January
2010 in Venice, according to
statistics released by Venice
Area Board of Realtors. How-
ever, the average sales price
was virtually half of what was
being achieved in 2006. Sim-
ilarly, the number of listed
properties remains about half
the number available in 2006.
Sales of 125 units last
month compared closely to
128 units in 2006 and was well
above the 88 units sold in Jan-
uary 2009 and 80 in January
2008. The average sales price
of $197,677 is above last year's
$175,430, but below the
$239,111 average in 2008.

County commission reaffirms baseball decisions


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

If anyone had shouted,
"It's deja vu all over again,"
after Friday's Sarasota
County Commission spe-
cial meeting at the
County Administration
Center, he would have
been forgiven.
With all due respect to
New York Yankee great
Yogi Berra, it was deja vu
all over again for the
commissioners, county
staff, representatives of
the Baltimore Orioles
and county residents,
who packed the commis-
sion chambers. After
more than six hours, the
commissioners voted to
ratify 10 agenda items
concerning the $31.2
million renovation of Ed
Smith Stadium and
Sports Complex and
the Minor League facil-
ities at Twin Lakes Park,
first approved July 22,
2009.
The agreement, among
other things, guarantees
the Orioles will use Ed
Smith Stadium and its
facilities, along with the
facilities at Twin Lakes
Park, for spring training
for the next 30 years.
The special meeting
was convened as a legal
maneuver to stop a Sun-
shine Law suit that is pre-
venting the project from
moving forward. Filed in
late December by Sara-
sota Citizens for Re-
sponsible Government
and Citizens for Sun-
shine, through attorney
Andrea Mogensen of
Sarasota, the suit already
has prevented the sale of
the bonds underwriting
the project.
4-1 votes
Where the Sunshine
Law is alleged to have
been violated, public


boards or commissions
can institute corrective
measures by taking "in-
dependent, final action
completely in the Sun-
shine," according to the
2009 edition of "Govern-
ment-in-the-Sunshine
Manual." The corrective
action commonly is re-
ferred to as a "cure meet-
ing."
Michael Barfield, a
consultant to Mogensen
and spokesman for the
citizens groups, coun-
tered statements at the
meeting that the Sun-
shine lawsuit is frivolous.
He said that in two in-
stances a judge issued
show-cause orders.
"Finally, the county
didn't file a motion to dis-
miss ... Instead, the
county filed an answer
and affirmative defenses
to our lawsuit," he said.
Commissioner Jon
Thaxton continued as the
lone negative vote against
his colleagues' votes in the
affirmative.
Eight items were rati-
fied by 4-1 votes, includ-
ing the memorandum of
understanding between
the county and Baltimore,
an interlocal agreement
with the city of Sarasota
conveying Ed Smith
complex to the county
and authorization to is-
sue the capital improve-
ment bonds not to ex-
ceed $20,325,000.
Additionally, the com-
missioners voted 4-1 to
amend the tourist devel-
opment tax ordinance so
an additional 0.5 percent
can be levied.
Funds for a rowing
facility at Benderson Park
are to come from the
additional levy, prompt-
ing dozens of parents,
coaches and hospitality
industry representatives
to speak in support of the
action.


Numbers
Thaxton voted with
the majority only twice,
once to ratify a contract
for an owner's represen-
tative who would assist
the county in the renova-
tion project, and then to
ratify the contract with
the architect of record on
the project. The owner's
rep, International Facil-
ities Group LLC, has a
contract not to exceed
$500,000, and architect
Hoyt/DSW Inc. has a
contract not to exceed
$2,409,000.
As he said when the
memorandum was first
approved in July, Thaxton
said the amount that will
go toward the renova-
tions could better be
used for other projects.
He said he had reviewed
economic development
incentives of the past 20
years and questioned
"the magnitude of the
impact on the communi-
ty with relationship to the
cost."
He said the job num-
bers being cited in the
discussion "are not base-
ball numbers, just con-
struction numbers."
"We can spend money
on other projects," he
said.
Commission Chair Joe
Barbetta disagreed with
Thaxton, saying after the
meeting that the contract
does not give the funds to
the Orioles to use, but

OPINION


GONDOLIER SUN EDITOR
BOB MUDGE

OUR VIEW


Stalking law should provide more protection


A lissa Blanton, 23, was a beautiful
woman. Why did 61-year-old
Roger Troy get away with stalk-
ing and murdering her?
Could the police or the judge have
saved her life? The answer is yes.
Blanton was murdered a week after
a judge rejected her request for a
court order of protection. Instead, he
rescheduled the hearing and asked
for more information, although Blan-
ton had filed a 72-page document.
Admittedly, she couldn't have used
pieces of paper as a shield from Troy's
bullets. He needed to be jailed.
Police said Blanton had been
harassed for two years by Troy when
she was a waitress at a Hooters restau-
rant in Merritt Island, Fla. She quit her
job and went to work at a call center
50 miles from home to escape Troy.
A retired businessman from Cocoa
Beach, Troy was a Hooters regular. Ac-
cording to the Orlando Sentinel,
management did not respond to


Blanton's requests for help in dealing
with him.
Is the restaurant to blame? Carol
Gillam, an experienced employment
lawyer, suggests a restaurant that uses
women in short shorts and tight tops
to lure in customers may have an
obligation to take action to protect its
employees from patrons.
"I think you could argue that an
employer that sells sex in any way,
maybe along with hamburgers and a
beer, may have more of an obligation
to protect its employees," Gillam told
the Sentinel.
Troy kept trying to hug her and
would follow her to her car at the end
of her shift, officials said. He demand-
ed her phone number, but she re-
fused. Eventually she did give him her
e-mail address.
Troy began sending e-mails criti-
cizing and mocking Blanton after she
married last August, according to the
72-page petition she filed in court on


Feb. 1. He also sent pictures of women
in suggestive positions in January,
and he criticized her hair and weight.
There are state and federal laws
against such behavior.
The U.S. Congress passed a "vio-
lence against women" act in 1994. The
Department of Justice published a re-
port on stalking in April 1996. Among
other things it said:
"Sending flowers, writing love
notes and waiting for someone out-
side her place of work are actions that,
on their own, are not criminal. When
these actions are coupled with an
intent to instill fear or injury, they may
constitute a pattern of behavior that is
illegal."
The report refers to a 1993 Florida
case in which a woman left her hus-
band and moved in with her parents
after he beat her until he broke her jaw.
On a Sunday in January of 1993 the
husband began calling at 7 a.m. and
continued throughout the day, forc-


ing her parents to take the phone off
the hook. When he did get through,
he cursed and threatened the parents.
"Under Florida's anti-stalking law,
John Pallas was arrested, charged
with aggravated stalking, and convict-
ed. Florida's law states in part that 'any
person who willfully, maliciously and
repeatedly follows or harasses anoth-
er person, and makes a credible
threat with the intent to place that
person in reasonable fear of death or
bodily injury, commits the offense of
aggravated stalking.'"
That took place back in 1993. The
time has come to hold a statewide
judicial conference to review the state
stalking law. Let it be done in Alissa
Blanton's name.
While stalkers are free to move
about until they break the law -
sometimes, even afterward -women
feel imprisoned by a stalker's actions.
It's the stalkers who belong in captivi-
ty.


It's your dog too


LANG CAPASSO
PUBLISHER


Since coming to town I have
only heard one word that
seems to be on everyone's
mind. That word is "airport."
I was only here a few days
when I started receiving calls
from different individuals or
groups that wanted to talk to
me about this issue. The pas-
sion and eloquence each
group or person displayed on
the topic, regardless of which
side of the issue they support-
ed, I found quite refreshing. It
is what we and America are all
about.
The arguments over the
designation of Venice Munic-
ipal Airport are presented in a
way that you have to know the
people presenting their case
are right when you listen.
The problem is, when you
listen to opposing views that
are well-presented, you tend
to see good points in both
sides. When you listen to many
people, you start to add the
pluses and minuses in your
head that may or may not
influence your belief about
what should be done.
America through the years
has thrived on debate and
argument: Lincoln-Douglas,
the Dred Scott decision, the
Scopes trial and, most recently,
health care, involved issues we
as Americans have debated
passionately. Now, I am not
comparing our airport discus-
sion to some of the debates
that have shaped our country,
but it is an issue that has got-


ten a lot of people excited
enough to form an opinion
and to become involved.
Whether you live near the
airport, are a pilot, have flying
experience, are a golfer or
believe in free enterprise, there
are issues here that go well
beyond the airport itself. I
could be wrong I doubt it -
but I have a feeling this will
carry over into the upcoming
election and its outcome.
Have I formed an opinion?
Not really. Do I think most
people have a personal agenda
in this issue or any issue, for
that matter? Probably. Is a
good, clean, open discussion
on this issue or any issue good
for all? You bet.
Regardless, any issue, espe-
cially one in which the public
is affected, should always be
discussed in public. That is
why we have the Sunshine Law
and, a little closer to home,
newspapers.
So, to make a long story
short, I think this debate is
good for all of us as it gets peo-
ple involved. To see how
involved you really are, what
are you doing to champion
your cause on this issue?
As I said earlier, this is an
election-decider that could
affect your city for years to
come. If you haven't already,
start learning the facts on this
issue by getting involved, and
even attend city council meet-
ings to see for yourself what is
going on and learn a little
more about the players.
Even if you can't vote, the
consequences of what is going
on at the facility reach far
beyond the city limits. In one
way or another we all have a
dog in this fight, whether you
think you do or not.
As they say, "Opinions are
like noses everyone has
one."

odically for this page.

Don't blame the airport

Common connection. The Golden Beach homeowners who
are so vocally anti-airport have a common connection. They
moved from out of state and purchased during the boom years.
They didn't care that their houses were directly in the flight path
ofVenice airport runway 13/31. Their property was appreciating
20 to 30 percent per year. Now that the boom has gone bust, they
are blaming the airport. It's a shame that some paid double what
the seller paid just a year earlier. But their foolishness should not
be allowed to hurt the economic vitality of the Venice airport.


No school money. Money,
money, money. Get ready,
folks, they're coming the
radicals who think that you
can solve any problem by
throwing money at it. Just give
us a 1-mill school property tax
to help out with education.
That was in 2000. This is the
third time they have demand-
ed money. It will never go
away. Can you imagine a busi-
ness doing that? Here are some
facts: Only two out of five stu-
dents graduate; 21 percent of
the students have left the area;
Sarasota County is a donor
county your money goes to
other counties as well; and the
school board ... $39,000 for
part-time work three mem-
bers who are double-dipping,
have already a pension with
benefits. Tell them to get their
financial and fiscal responsi-
bilities straight first, and clean
their own house before asking
us for more money.
No changes. I hope I'm not
too late to make my com-
ments on whether the airport
should be a "C" or a "B." I think
we should not accept a "C"
designation for the airport. We
moved here many years ago,
we've known it and lived with
it an airport for owners of
small airplanes. We want it to
stay that way. No one, other
than the city residents, and
that includes the FAA, has the
right to determine the config-
uration of the airport. It means
so much to our contentment
and well-being. That is the
paramount good to be ob-
tained, not vainglorious vis-
ions of a monster in our midst.


Let 'em


Have It


Fight it. The city should
fight to keep the airport a B-II.
Roads and waste. Venice is
a unique city, admired and
loved by many visitors and
people living here all year-
round. The main roads and
streets are in desperate need of
replacement now. This
would be money wisely spent.
About this roundabout -
what is not broken, do not fix.
Money for this is not spent
wisely. This is not good, calling
it important.
Request. I'm calling with a
request for Mr. Capasso. Al-
though we welcome him to
Venice, we're not happy with
the inclusion of the fancy mag-
azine in today's Gondolier Sun
concerning the Charlotte area.
We're Venice residents, and
your predecessor had begun to


push the Gondolier Sun south-
ward and turn it into a Char-
lotte newspaper, and we don't
like it. I know we're not the
only ones. You need to focus
on Venice, which is the Venice
Gondolier Sun. This is a waste
of our subscription money to
have this fancy magazine
included today. We resent it.
Again, we welcome you and
wish you well, but we know
you're from farther south and
we don't want to see this hap-
pen. Please listen and return
the paper to what it was before
Mr. Vedder started changing
the whole Let's Go thing and
made it all about Charlotte
County. We're tired of it.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Several years
ago Sun Coast Media Group
decided to combine the Venice
Let's Go section and Charlotte's.
The consolidated product has
features and ads from both
areas. The Gondolier Sun also
includes ads from Charlotte busi-
nesses that pay to be in all the
Sun Coast Media Group's publi-
cations. Without advertising, sub-
scription prices would be much
higher.
Independence. After all of
this voter changing around
from Democrat to Republican
to Independent, is there some-
one at your newspaper who
could please put in simple,
easy-to-understand rules and
regulations about voting Inde-
pendent? Please, and thank
you.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Florida has
closed primaries. Only Republi-
cans can vote in Republican pri-
maries, and only Democrats in
Democratic primaries. Independ-
ents can vote in universal pri-
maries ones in which there are
only candidates from one party
and no opposition in the general
election. You can vote for any can-
didate in a general election.
Tighten up. I vote no on the
extension of the school prop-
erty tax because the school
Be responsible. We're go-
ing to vote no on this school
tax. It's about time they quit
wasting our money and be
responsible.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS

Seven reasons for a B-II
Editor:
There are many reasons to support a B-II ARC des-
ignation for the Venice airport, including:
1. The cost to expand and modify the airport to a
safe C-II is $7 million-$20 million or more.
2. The expansion of the airport RPZ into the adja-
cent Gulf Shores neighborhood will be costly.
3. This airport is not expected to reach the FAA
threshold of 500 operations with C-II aircraft for 20
years or more. There are no C-II aircraft based at the
Venice airport.
4. The type of aircraft and number of operations
supports the B-II ARC designation.
5. The runway lengths of 5,000 feet and 4,706 feet
currently do not meet the FAA standard for C-II oper-
ations, which are recommended to be 5,300-5,500
feet. This limits the safe landing of C-II aircraft with
large loads, fully fueled and during rainy weather.
6. The changes required to meet the C-II standards
will eliminate nine holes of the golf course and possi-
bly eliminate the feasibility of the operation.
7. The entire environmental impact of changing
this airport to a C-II has not been conducted. An
expansion of an airport under federal regulations
requires an environmental review be completed to
look at the impacts on residents, businesses, wildlife
and community infrastructure (roads, bridges, etc.).


that, surely a public option
to give citizens a choice.
If people can't afford
health care, how can you
fine them? Good grief.

Lolly Bury
Nokomis
Too soon
to slow down
Editor:
Why has the FDOT
changed the speed limits
on the Venice Connector
(State Road 681) when
the work for the Honore
Avenue expansion will
not be completed until
2012?
Doesn't it have enough
other work to do?
All the other expan-
sion near this area is not
expected to even start
because of the poor
economy, but travelers
will be subjected to re-
duced speed limits for no
reason whatsoever other
than the FDOT's incom-
petence.


Chris Davis
Venice


EDITOR'S NOTE: The issue isn't the "expansion" of the
airport, but what steps, if any, will need to be taken to
meet federal regulations regarding airport safety.


Do the
planes know?
Editor:
Mayor Martin had
another column in the
Gondolier Sun, and it's
disappointing that he still
finds it necessary to gra-
tuitously slam outstand-
ing members of our com-
munity.
Earlier leases should
have been fully complet-
ed but the monetary
result was of more bene-
fit to the city than the
revamped lease, pored
over by our city fathers
for years, than the new
one over the life of the
contract.
When will our mayor
learn that not telling the
truth in one area ad-
versely affects the mes-
sage even on other
points? The FAA does not
and never has recom-
mended to council that
the 24 homes in Gulf
Shores sitting under the
RPZ umbrella be remov-
ed. Why does he persist
in this disinformation
when all knowledgeable
people know it's false?
The legal and moral
issue he should directly
confront was highlighted
at the last airport special
meeting: If you arbitrarily
declare the airport a B-
11, thus removing the

GREG SHANIKA
GUEST COLUMNIST


Sometimes life has to
kick you in the head -
or, in my case, in the
heart before you really
understand what life is
all about and what is
really important.
Even then it may take
some time for that real-
ization to sink in. If you
are a slow learner like I
am, it may take 10 years
or more.
Eleven years ago I got
my wake-up call when
my physicians told me
that my heart was rapidly
failing and I was dying.
My immediate reac-
tion was to set about get-
ting my affairs in order;
making certain that
when I died my wife
would be as financially
secure as possible and
would have no difficulty
with my estate and other
matters.
I researched every-
thing I could find about
options available to peo-
ple with end-stage con-
gestive heart failure.
I exercised as well as
my body would allow,
preserving my strength
for what I expected to be
a difficult battle.
I sought out the best
medical specialists my


wife and I could afford
and easily access. I did
everything I could to get
my arms around the situ-
ation.
Ultimately, I was ac-
cepted to the heart-
transplant waiting list at
Tampa General Hospital.
Months passed as I
methodically prepared
and nervously waited.
One month, three months,
five months went by as
my health deteriorated.
I had done all I could.
Finally, I came to the
conclusion that there are
things in my life that I
cannot, try as I may, con-
trol.
For me this was a star-
tling revelation because I
thought I had always
been master of my own
fate, a self-made man -
the first in my family to
attend university, and a
highly successful health-
care executive and plan-
ner.
From early childhood
I believed that I could do
anything I set my mind
to so long as it was phys-
ically possible, moral and
ethical.
Yet, here I was, having
done all I could to pre-
pare for and attempt to
forestall my own death,
powerless to completely
control circumstances.
With a great sigh of
relief, I came to the real-
ization that the outcome
was out of my hands. I
made my peace with
God, surrendered myself
into His loving hands
and was rewarded with a
peace beyond compre-
hension.
As I figured it, I had
done all I could, and be-
cause I made my peace


with God, no matter
what the outcome, I
couldn't lose.
As I lay dying in the
cardiac intensive-care
unit at Tampa General
with just a couple of days
before my congestive
heart failure progressed
to the point where trans-
plant would no longer be
feasible, a miracle hap-
pened. A perfect match
became available right
there at TGH. On April 4,
1999, which happened to
be Easter Sunday, I was
gifted with my new life.
I will celebrate, God
willing, my 11th re-birth-
day the coming April 4.
I cannot say that I
have completely given
up on the notion that I
can somehow control
certain aspects of my life,
and aging has proven
that I cannot accomplish
everything I set my mind
to.
It's sometimes a strug-
gle to admit that I am not
the superman I once
thought. But when I re-
mind myself of that pre-
cious peace I experi-
enced when I first admit-
ted that I did all I could
and left the rest to God I
can feel that peace wash-
ing over me again.

Better days


ahead

The fishing can only get
better.
At least people are starting
to fish again, and I think the
water temperature has even
risen a few degrees. This has
to be the coldest two and a
half to three months in years.
Come on, March, but hold
back the wind. We've had
enough wind this winter.
Give us plenty of 70s and
maybe even a few 80s.
The inshore fishing should
get better and better. The
sheepies should finally wake
up as the water temperature
rises. Am I being too opti-
mistic? I hope not.
It would be nice if a series
of mini-docks or piers along
the Intracoastal next to the
trail, south of the Circus
Bridge, would be built. I'm
not talking about protruding
out over the water. Think
about the access to prime
fishing areas.
Unfortunately, the approval
would have to come from
the U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers. It's doubtful if it would
approve it.
Just think about it, a mini
pier every 30 to 40 feet with
steps leading down to the
overhang. A man can dream,
can't he?
Well, fellow Sheepshead-
ites, the time has come to say
goodbye until next week.

pitching," said Zgrabik. "Seeing them
back to back was kind of nice."
"Early on she was too anxious," said
Venice coach Dan Rubin about
Zgrabik. "Now she is dialed in. She just
has to stay within herself, be comfort-
able. I went up to her one day and told
her, 'you can't hit a five-run home run.'
What I was trying to tell her is she was
trying to do much. Dial it back down to
80 percent, find your swing and obvi-
ously she has."
North Port took a 1-0 lead in the sec-
ond inning with the help of an error
and a bloop single down the left-field
line by Matilde DeJesus.
Venice left two runners on base in
the first two innings but starting hitting
the North Port starter Matilde DeJesus
in the third inning.
With one out, Zgrabik crushed a 1-0
pitch over the left-center field fence to
tie it at 1-1.
"I figured they didn't want to pitch to
me and I didn't think they actually
would," said Zgrabik. "First time up
they walked me. I'm pretty sure she
wasn't supposed to pitch to me (the
second time). I was looking for a mis-
take and that's what happens."
Teammate Mel Dembinski nearly
followed with another home run but
North Port center fielder Erin Silver-
thorne caught the ball over the fence
but it popped out of her glove as she
attempted to bring it back into the
field. Dembinski settled for a double.
The Lady Indians (5-1) left two more
runners in scoring position in the third
inning.
Venice, who got hits from every
batter in the lineup, erupted for three
runs in the fourth inning on three
hits.
A two-run triple by Kelly Ott into
right field gave Venice a 3-1 lead then
Dembinski's RBI single put the Lady
Indians ahead 4-1.

In the fifth inning, North Port got
two quick outs but a walk and two
errors loaded the bases for Zgrabik,
who cleared the bases by lining a home
run over the center field fence.
"I go out there bases loaded just
wanted to get a little base hit," said
Zgrabik. "If I psyche myself up for a
home run, I'm done."
While Zgrabik was getting it down
offensively, Dembinski shut down
North Port with her pitching.
The junior right-hander allowed
just three hits with six strikeouts to
raise her record to 4-1.

to place and I did it," said Erickson. "It
could have been different but that's
what wrestling is. I'm just proud and
glad I got a medal. That's what I
dreamed of."
"I think he could have beat all three
of those kids," said Kelly. "Yesterday he
just wrestled great. Today (Saturday) I
think he wrestled good. You just can't
wrestle good against kids like this. He
came up short in all those matches. I
really believe if he wrestles those kids
10 times, he wins five of them. Not
today. When you upset the top-ranked
kid and make it to the semis, you start
wanting more. You start getting greedy.
Not his best day of wrestling today.
You've got to have your best day to
make it."
After losing in the semifinals and
fourth round ofwrestlebacks, Erickson,
who went 2-3 at states, wrestled in the
fifth- and sixth-place match against
Land O'Lakes senior Justin McKay, who
entered with a 40-7 record.
The first period ended 0-0 after
Erickson just missed two takedowns
near the edge of the mat.
McKay escaped with 1:11 left in the
second period then got a takedown and
caught Erickson for a two-point near-
fall. Trailing 5-0, Erickson picked up a
reversal in the third period to trail, 5-2.
McKay escaped then Erickson tried a
head throw for a five-point move but
McKay slipped it and got a takedown
with 16 seconds left to end it.
Erickson finished the season with a
41-7 record.
In the championship semifinals,
Erickson wrestled a state-tested oppo-
nent in Miami Belen Jesuit's Esteban
Gomez-Rivera, who ended up winning
the state title.
Last year, Gomez-Rivera grabbed a
state runner-up medal at 112 pounds
in Class 1A and entered his match
against Erickson with a 45-1 record.
The two battled to a 0-0 tie after the
first period.

With 1:18 left in the second period,
Gomez-Rivera escaped and got a quick
takedown to take a 3-0 lead. Both were
trying to get a takedown at the end of
the second period when Erickson shot
in for a takedown, got caught and put
on his back. Gomez-Rivera ended it
with a pin with just eight seconds left in
the second period.
"Jeremy was on the verge of tying it
3-3 with that takedown," said Kelly. "If
he would have just finished that dou-
ble-leg (takedown), it would have tied it
3-3. I really think we would have won in
the third (period). He got in deep and
got his hips underneath of him. He
arched (his back) and got caught in a
whipover. Jeremy kind of put himself in
a weird position by arching his back.
Maybe going a little bit too desperate
instead of taking your time and doing it
right. He got caught and that was it.
Once you get caught in that whipover
you usually get pinned."
In the fourth round of wrestlebacks,
Erickson faced Jonathon Heffner of
Fort Myers Riverdale, who beat him, 5-
2, in the regional final last week.
Heffner used a two-point nearfall at the
start of the second period for the decid-
ing points in a 5-3 loss.
After a 0-0 first period, Heffner
picked up a quick two points as
Erickson was caught on his back after
getting taken down on the mat.
Erickson got a reversal and escape in
the period but was still behind, 4-3 after
two periods.
In the third period, Heffner escaped
for a 5-3 lead and Erickson couldn't get
the tying takedown before time
expired.
"I thought he did a much better job
than he did in regionals against that
boy," said Kelly. "In that second period,
if he would not have got caught on that
quick two (points). Almost like he fell
into the quick two before he got away."
His last high school match might
have been Saturday but Erickson, who
takes advanced placement courses at
Venice High, would like to wrestle in
college.

Walmart robbery
On Feb. 20, at 11:10 p.m., a woman was robbed of

Tony A. Noble, 23, was arrested and charged with
strong-arm robbery. Anyone with information about
this case is asked to report it to investigators at 861-

Harming baby's mother
Dylan Stewart Waldron, 20, 1000 block Capri Isles
Blvd., Venice, was arrested and charged with domes-
tic battery, according to a Venice Police Department
report.
The victim went into the bedroom to wake
Waldron as he'd asked her to. Waldron got angry,
grabbed the victim's arm and pushed her onto the bed
while she was holding their 3-month-old baby.
The victim walked into the living room, sat on the
sofa and began feeding the baby. Waldron started
yelling at her and grabbed her right arm, bending it
backward.
The officer noticed red marks on the victim's right
arm and Waldron admitted the abuse. He received no
bond.

rant check on a female, according to the report.
When they arrived, they saw movement inside the
house through the front window. One deputy went to
the back of the house while the other deputy prepared
to knock on the front door.
From his backyard position, the deputy recognized
a man he had dealt with numerous times. The man
was loading a hypodermic needle from a spoon in the
bedroom. He also was holding two prescription bot-
tles in his hand.
When the deputy knocked on the front door, the
man set the needle down and as he headed for the
door asked, "Who is it?" When the deputy identified
himself, the man ran back into the room, and the
deputy in the backyard saw the man hide the needle
in the top left dresser drawer and the pill bottles in the
second drawer down. Then the man answered the
door.
The man had valid prescriptions for all of the pills,
which were alprazolam, oxycodone 30 mg and
methadone. He admitted shooting up the oxycodone,
which was consistent with the blue liquid still in the
spoon and in the needle. Numerous other needles
were in the drawer and there were black marks on the
back of the spoon consistent with frequent heating
for drug use.
Also present in the house was a 10-year-old boy,
whom the man was babysitting while his father was
away. The father was called back to the home to care
for the boy.
Brian Michael Nerau, 30, was arrested and charged
with child neglect without great harm and possession
of drug paraphernalia. His bond is $50,000.
Fleeing
A Sarasota County Sheriff's Office deputy was con-
ducting stationary radar work when he clocked a
woman doing 57 mph in a posted 35 mph zone,
according to the report. The deputy activated his
emergency lights to stop the car near Webber Street
and Webber Place, Sarasota, when it made a sharp left
turn northbound on Webber Place. The car drove to
the dead end of Webber Place and pulled into the dri-
veway at 2502 Webber Place.
Heather Michelle Acton, 20, 1300 block Brookside
Drive, Venice, was arrested and charged with failure to
obey a law enforcement officer's order to stop. She
also received a citation for speeding.
Acton's passenger said he didn't know why she did-
n't stop and he and Acton had no reason to be in the
driveway of 2502 Webber Place.
No business license
RexWray Peters, 32, and his wife, Tabitha Peters, 28,
500 block Briarwood Road, Venice, were arrested and
charged with contracting without a certificate,
according to a Sarasota County Sheriff's Office report.
According to a Department of Business and
Professional Regulation investigation report, the
Office of the State Attorney charged the couple after
the DBPR investigation found that Rex Peters was not
a licensed certified general contractor and his compa-
ny, South County Masonry, was not a qualified busi-
ness.
The couple had contracted with a local resident,
who paid them with checks received and cashed by
Tabitha Peters. When the woman contacted the cou-
ple, they agreed to refund the money, but then aban-
doned the job, and the woman was not able to get in
touch with them.
The couple received no bond.

INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY OFFERS

NEW SOLUTIONS FOR KNEE PAIN

If you've been suffering from debilitating knee pain due to
osteoarthritis but have been reluctant to consider total knee
replacement surgery, Venice Regional Medical Center may
have a solution for you.
VRMC is the only hospital in the area to offer a ground-
breaking new treatment procedure known as MAKOplasty.
Used to treat early to mid-stage osteoarthritis, MAKOplasty
is a minimally invasive partial knee resurfacing procedure that
can be performed on the inner, top or outer portions of the
knee. Because the procedure requires smaller incisions and
preserves more of the original knee tissue, patients typically
have a shorter hospital stay and more rapid recovery.
MAKOplasty is powered by the RIO Robotic Arm
Interactive Orthopedic System. Its innovative use of
technology allows surgeons to achieve a degree of accuracy
previously unattainable with conventional methods. RIO is
unique because it allows knee resurfacing to be performed
with consistently reproducible precision.
The RIO system assists surgeons in several ways. Prior to
surgery, the system provides a detailed, patient-specific plan
for customized implant positioning. During the procedure
itself, RIO creates a live-action 3-D virtual view of the bone
surface. Surgeons guide a robotic arm via computer navigation
with real-time visual, tactile and auditory feedback. Only the
diseased portion of the knee is resurfaced, sparing the patient's
healthy bone and surrounding tissue. An implant is secured in
thejoint, allowing the knee to move comfortably again.
"This system produces truly amazing results,"' said Shelly
Howarth, Surgical Services Director at Venice Regional Medical
Center. "Precision is critical when planning and performing knee
surgeries. RIO operates with incredible accuracy, which creates
positive surgical outcomes for patients and an implant that is
likely to last longer and function more naturally":
MAKOplasty offers significant advantages over traditional knee
replacement surgery. Results have shown that MAKO patients
tend to have minimal blood loss and scarring, less implant wear
and loosening and a faster return to an active lifestyle.
VRMC is proud to bring this leading technology to the
Sarasota/Bradenton area as well as DeSoto County and has
four orthopedic surgeons who have been trained on the RIO
system. They are Drs. Brian Briggs,Julio Gonzalez, Michael
Jaquith and John Paul Vidolin.
Candidates for MAKOplasty include patients who encounter
any of the following symptoms:
* knee pain with activity, on the inner knee, under the knee
cap or the outer knee
* start-up knee pain or stiffness with activity that is initiated
from a sitting position
* failure to respond to non-surgical treatments or non-
steroidal anti-inflammatory medication
If you are interested in learning more about MAKOplasty,
consult with your physician or call Venice Regional Medical
Center at 941-483-7600.

BRIEFS


THE MANY
BENEFITS OF WALKING

For many people, embarking on an
exercise routine can be a daunting task.
But did you know that simply going for
a walk is among the best exercise there
is? You might be surprised to learn
how beneficial walking for as little as
20 to 30 minutes a day, three times a
week can be.
Walking works wonders for cardio-
vascular health. In fact, some studies
have shown that a moderate walk-
ing regime can cut your risk of heart
disease by 40%! It reduces blood
cholesterol, lowers high blood pressure
and resting pulse rate, and improves
breathing function. Walking also
plays a big part in the prevention and
control of diabetes, because it improves
circulation and helps those who walk
regularly maintain a healthy weight.
In addition, walking boosts the
immune system and increases flex-
ibility and muscle strength, and has
been shown to allow older people to
live longer independently. It main-
tains bone density, so it helps ward off
osteoporosis. It also reduces stress and
relieves depression, as anyone who has
experienced the peace of mind a long
walk brings will agree. And last, but
not least, walking is one of the most
effective ways to lose weight an aver-
age person burns between 250 and 400
calories an hour.
Walking is easy to stick with because
it's easy to do; all you need is a comfort-
able pair of shoes. And, in Venice, it can
quickly become part of your daily rou-
tine. The mild climate, lovely beaches
and pleasant downtown streets offer
perfect places to take a stroll. So what
are you waiting for?

Living free in Venice

BY CHARLEEN JAEB
GUEST WRITER

WhyVenice? ..
We came for the wonderful downtown with its unique shops, the uncrowded streets
and beach, friends already here, proximity to major tourist destinations and welcoming
attitude of businesses to tourists and seniors.
Venice freebies were the bonus.

Free is me
Unlike many other Florida cities, Venice still has free parking in town and at the
beach. From free nature walks to tax help, many of the best things in Venice are free.
I compiled my list by checking newspapers, local libraries, the Venice Area Chamber
of Commerce, Venice Beach Pavilion, downtown kiosks, Venice Art Center, Senior
Friendship Centers, church bulletins and Venice MainStreet, whose mission is
the promotion, historic preservation, beautification and improvement of the
economic vitality of the downtown.
Aiming to find 50 freebies from the many offerings, I found many more and
sorted them into categories.

Art and antiques
In addition to the Venice Art Center, at 390 S. Nokomis Ave., there are many
area art galleries and antique shops.
The Venice Art Center offers free demonstrations at 11 a.m. Monday and
Saturday and at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday. There will be an art show and sale
Feb. 26 and 27.
March 6-7, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., my favorite Venice art show will feature artists
from all over the United States displaying work on West Venice Avenue, from
Nokomis Avenue to Harbor Drive.
Free drawing classes are offered from 10 to 11 a.m. Monday, Tuesday and
Wednesday near the old Army Air Base sign in the median of WestVenice Avenue,
and from 10-11 a.m Saturday in the pavilion near Sharky's On The Pier.
While tipping is not required, many participants tip individuals offering free
classes.

Education and culture
The Venice Public Library, 300 S. Nokomis Ave., is open six days a week, offering dis-
cussions on international issues at 9:30 a.m. on Monday, old movies at 1 and 6 p.m. on
Thursday, Booked for Lunch sessions with local authors at noon on Friday and free Wi-Fi
and other programs daily. Call 861-1331.
The Francis T. Bourne Jacaranda Public Library is at 4143 Woodmere Park Blvd.
Movies are shown at 2 p.m. on Tuesdays, and there is an Ask Jack computer session each
Friday at 1:30 p.m. Call 861-1260.

City of North Port raises $20,000 for United Way


STAFF REPORT


Steve Brett, executive direc-
tor of the United Way of South
Sarasota County, said in early
February the city of North
Port successfully completed


its 2009-10 United Way cam-
paign by raising more than
$20,000.
The spirit of giving, as well
as community need, inspired
the employees of the city of
North Port to open their hearts


to the community.
Cindi Bassett, the city of
North Port United Way Cam-
paign coordinator, and her
committee, organized the
employee campaign, a cookie
baking contest, raffles, hot


dog days and a chili-cooking
contest that contributed to
achieving the goal.
"We acknowledge and give
our sincere thanks to all city
employees who participated
in the campaign and sup-


ported our United Way of
South Sarasota County, as
well as touching, changing
and improving the lives of
children, families and seniors
who struggle in their time of
need," Brett said.

Bill and Ann Van Cott celebrate their anniverar at the Rotary
Sweetheart Dinner.


Ann, left, and Dick Dodderidge, Jean Peters and Esther Wells cele-
brate sweethearts.


FRAN VALENCIC
SOCIAL COLUMNIST


Each year members of the
Venice-Nokomis Rotary Club
romance their sweethearts at
a Valentine's Day dinner-
dance with flowers, food and
song. Each woman receives a
lovely red rose.
This year Chris and Karen
Romig added their stardust,
performing beautiful songs
such as "Moon River" and
"Charade."
Organizers for the gala are
two Venice sweethearts who
seem as much in love as
when they married. Dan and
Freda Boone made sure the
songs were romantic and the
menu decadent, including
prime rib or salmon. The


cheesecake with strawberries
and whipped cream com-
pleted a perfect meal.
The evening brought warm
memories as members paid
tribute to Bill Wells, Jack
Ogle and Jack Meyerhoff,
deceased Rotarians and vet-
erans. Esther Wells and
Marion Ogle received lus-
cious bouquets of flowers.
Margie Meyerhoff's brother
accepted on her behalf.
The Venice Yacht Club
provided a perfect setting for
a lovely evening.
A heartfelt thank-you
Dr. Jonathan Fong and
Venice-Ocala Heart Institute
sponsored the Venice Sym-
phony Classical Concert. The
audience enjoyed the music,
including the soft "Valse
Triste" by Jean Sibelius. It
made the Church of the
Nazarene seem like it swayed
to the lilting melody.
Maestro Kenneth Bower-
meister chose a nice variety
of selections and featured
musicians whose individual
talents highlighted each piece.
The second half of the pro-
gram featured "Symphony
No. 3 in A Minor," by Feliz


Mendelssohn, which the
maestro called "an orches-
tral masterpiece."
One of our best
The special person of this
week is Jeff Boone.
He was born and raised in
Venice and may be one of the
most passionate Venice
Indians and Florida Gator
fans in town. Dressed in
shorts, a Florida T-shirt and
flip-flops, He is a regular at
Venice High sporting events
whether or not any of his
children is playing,
He is a dedicated Rotarian
and could win an award for
collecting fines. He takes
note of whether friends wear
socks or not and either way
zings them for at least $1. His
name appears in most pro-
grams as a patron. He rolls up
his sleeves and works at
fundraising events.
When there is a need, Jeff
Boone is a man people know
they can count on to help. He
has a big heart.
Jeff Boone is one of the
Venice natives who make this
town great.

Rarely does a day go by that a new
book does not cross my desk. The
latest may be one of the most unusual and
educational especially for other writers and
would-be writers.
It is written by the most prolific husband-wife
team I know Robert and Patricia Gussin.
He is a retired scientist. She is a retired medical
doctor and researcher.
Together and separately, they have entertained
me and countless others with their mystery stories,
his "Trash Talk" and their latest combined venture,
"What's Next ... For You," which is sort of a
self-help memoir for everyone, whether retired
or not.
They founded Oceanview Publishing in Ipswitch,
Mass. It has become the fast-growing successful
small press in the United States. Its catalog is
filled with award-winning novels many by area
authors.
They have a knack for identifying good books
and making them better. Above all, they know
how to identify priorities and face change head on.
They divide their time, between East Hampton, N.Y.,
Longboat Key and New Zealand.
Meet them at The Sand Dollar, 302 Marina Drive,
Holmes Beach, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.
To reserve copies of any of their books, call the
store at 941-778-2024.

Hardee County events are primed for entertainment


BY SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
ARCADIAN EDITOR
WAUCHULA Hardee County extends
a warm welcome to residents and visitors
to its many family-friendly events. You'll
experience a real sense of community the
minute you enter one of its noted events.
March may be the best month to
experience the friendliness of Hardee
County because three of its most popular
events Wauchula's Friday Night Live,
Pioneer Days and The Story of Jesus -
will take place.

Friday Night Live
Main Street Wauchula just started up
Friday Night Live, a downtown street fair,
beginning last year. Now almost a year
old, the monthly events are growing in
popularity.
Friday night live takes place on the third
Friday of every month on and around Main
Street in Wauchula, Hardee County. From
5 p.m. to 9 p.m., the streets are blocked off
to vehicles and vendors line up, selling
everything from handcrafted gifts and
jewelry to homemade preserves.
Food is always a central feature of
Friday Night Live, and each month has a
different theme. February featured the
popular "Grillin' and Chillin' two-day
barbecue cook-off, in which groups
compete for bragging rights as BBQ
champs. There is always musical
entertainment (so bring along a blanket
or lawn chairs) as well as special
attractions for kids.
Most of the downtown merchants stay
open during the monthly event so you can
stroll along Main Street and do a little
shopping in the many boutiques.


The theme for Friday Night
Live on March 19 is Goin'
Green! So grab your
brightest kelly green
garb and head to
Wauchula for a lively .
evening.
To reach Main
Street in Wauchula,
just follow U.S. Highway
17 north through DeSoto
County. Once you cross the
Hardee County line, Wauchula is
14 miles ahead. For more information, call
Main Street Wauchula at 863-767-0330 or
visit www.mainstreetwauchula.com.

Pioneer Park Days
Just as it has for the past 40 years, Zolfo
Springs will become the host to several
hundred thousand people when the 41st
Annual Pioneer Park Days kicks off on
March 3, running until March 7.
Located at the corner of State Road 64
and U.S. Highway 17 in Zolfo Springs
along the Peace River, an Old Fashioned
Parade will begin at 10 a.m. on
Saturday in downtown Wauchula.
The event will include a parade, flea
market, antique gas engines, antique
tractors, antique car show, the Cracker
Trail Museum and daily entertainment.
Local civic, church, school groups and
nonprofit organizations from throughout
the community will have something for
everyone with a variety of food.
As it has been since its inception, the
Pioneer Park Days promise to be bigger
and better than ever.
Admission is $2 daily or a weekly pass
for $5. For more information, call
863-773-2161.


The Story of Jesus
What started as a skit at
a local church in 1984
has blossomed into a
S professional produc-
tion, involving
upwards of 300
o actors and stage
crew, and even 150
animals. "The Story of
fJesus" tells the timeless
story of Christ with a contem-
porary flair. Now in its 26th year, The
Story of Jesus unfolds on a 250-foot stage
with more than 225 actors, with a quality
rivaling a Broadway production.
"People come from all over Central
Florida to take part in this," said the Rev.
Mike Graham, who leads Power and Light

"They come from a variety of
churches and we even have
about 100 teenagers this
year."
One of the popular
features is the use of
animals to give the
presentation a very
realistic flair. New this
year is a team of oxen
pulling an ox cart. There
are also sheep, goats,
chickens, ducks and donkeys to
name a few.
"It's almost unheard-of for something like
this to last so long," Graham said. Unlike
the more famous Passion Play, which has
been performed every 10 years since
1634 in Oberammergau, Germany, The
Story of Jesus is enacted annually during
the Easter season.


Visitors come from all over Florida and
beyond for this experience. Graham said
they once had a busload from Texas.
The producers take pride in making the
story accurate and authentic, while
maintaining its appeal to a contemporary
audience. Presently, the drama is present-
ed at the Hardee County Cattlemen's
Arena, 507 Civic Center Drive in Wauchu-
la. Follow U.S. Highway 17 north to Zolfo
Springs; after another mile, turn west onto
Stenstrom Road and follow it to the end.
But Graham is excited about the
prospect of eventually having a dedicated
state and facility for the production. With
the recent donation of 40 acres of land on
State Road 66 outside Zolfo Springs,
Power and Light plans to build its own
facility, with a professional theater and
stage to accommodate the yearly produc-
tion. In anticipation, Graham said
-ian architect has already begun
drawing plans, and he
himself has written two
S additional scripts -The
Story of Moses and The
Story of Noah to be
produced one day at the
new location. Fundraising
to build the permanent
facilities will begin soon.
-The Story of Jesus will be
presented at 7:30 p.m. on March 26 and
27, and April 2, 3, 9, 10, 16, 17, 23 and
24. Tickets are $17 for adults, $15 each for
children, seniors and groups of 25 or
more, and $13 for end-section seating.
Tickets are on sale now and can be
purchased by calling 863-375-4031
or visit www.storyofjesus.com.


Jamming out Florida style at Stevefest


BY SHARE DERRICKSON
SUN CORRESPONDENT
During the last weekend of the
month, the Charlotte
County Fair-
grounds will be
transformed ini:
a music ..i
festival that ,,
has turned
into a
much-
anticipat-
ed yearly
event.
This
year's **r
Stevefest is
being called
"Backyard
Revolution,"
where an
impressive liri-Lup :' I
performers will entertain
with music likened to a combination
of folk, Americana, and bluegrass.
The festival, Sue Blackwell said, is
held yearly in honor of her late hus-
band, Steve Blackwell, who was not
only a teacher at Charlotte High School,
but also a gifted musician who also
spent much of his time performing in
bands and writing much of his own
material. He loved his family, teaching,
and playing music.
Blackwell passed away in 2006 and
was married to Sue for 39 years. This is


one way, she said, those of whom his
life touched could honor him and the
music he so loved.
Blackwell said her
huI.-Lban,: would be
verve pleased that
Mhe community
..... ... alsoforme... ...a ba d, S ty
0 kis supporting
Florida folk
music.
"He
always

Si to bring
n the

s to life."
Bla l Blackwell
was
known to
o:llepg n take his
euloar 1Ia school
g0e uSe ii as a
learning tool for his
students. He also formed a band, Steve
Blackwell & Friends, that recorded
several CDs and toured Florida and the
country playing songs about people and
events in our backyard.
The genesis of Stevefest started not
long after he died, when members of
his band reformed and called them-
selves Still Friends. The band, which will
be performing prominently at the
festival, includes Steve's daughter
Carrie Blackwell Hussey and son Japhy
Blackwell, Tiffiny Coffey, Dan Leach and


his son Andy Leach.
Much of Blackwell's music, Sue
Blackwell said, served a purpose, such
as edifying one another, our planet, and
giving our lives meaning for ourselves
and those we come in contact with.
"This year, we are having many national
touring acts as well as local bands. It has
gotten so big, we don't know really what to
expect as far as how many people are
coming," she said.
There will be two stages, so the music
will be nearly continuous. Performers
include Stoll Vaughn, Doug Spears,


Mindy Simmons, Phil Lee, Amanda
Shires, Brian Molnar, Paul Cottrell, Mike
Haymans and Mike Riley.
A big draw will be that campers can
come for three days of music and
camaraderie, she said, adding that the
Charlotte County Fairgrounds also has
a limited number of hook-up sites for
RVs. Those wishing to camp should
make reservations early.
Tickets, reservations for campsites,
and a host of information about the
festival are on its Web site at
www.stevefestmusic.com.

Iron Chef cooks


at Hard Rock


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
There is more to the Seminole
Hard Rock Hotel & Casino
than gambling.
Entertainment runs a close second.
Saturday, the entertainment might
even be smoking' when TV star and
chef Cat Cora presents a cooking
demonstration in the resort's special
events tent.
Tickets went on sale this month for
the event which will have limited
seating and include a free meet-and-
greet in the hotel lobby from 3 p.m.
to 4 p.m. Doors to the event will open
at 4 p.m., followed at 5 p.m. by the
chef's demonstration.
Cat Cora was the first and only
female Iron Chef the the famed Food
Network show, "Iron Chef America"
when she appeared in 2005. She first
gained TV fame as co-host, with
Rocco DiSpirito, on "Melting Pot" on
the Food Network. Currently she is
the executive chef for Bon Appetit
magazine and also working with the
Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando
on Kouzzina, its new restaurant which
opened this past fall. Her most recent
book is "Cooking From The Hip: Fast,
Easy, Phenomenal Meals" published
by Houghton Mifflin.
With southern roots and a Greek
heritage her cuisine might be labeled
Greek/Southern Fusion. Mentored by
Julia Child, the CIA (Culinary Institute
of America) grad first learned cooking
from her father and grandfather who
were both chefs. She also studied
with top Michelin chefs in France
Tickets are $35 for general admis-

copper, installing a pirate's ship bed in
the child's room, filling giant vases
with champagne corks as an accent

master suite and designing the in-
law's suite around the Italian drink

'The Magic Flute' is c


BY ROSEMARY ALTEA
SPECIAL TO THE SUN
Mozart was commissioned to
compose 'The Magic Flute' in
the spring of 1791. It was
hailed as the greatest stage success of
the "Maestro's" life. Mozart died just two
months after the world premier, but this
work continued to live on in the finest
opera houses in the world.
A love story filled with superstition and
the battle of good and evil, love conquers,
with Tamino (Joshua Kohl) and Pamina
(Maria D'Amato), the star crossed lovers,
overcoming all. Tamino captures our
hearts from the very beginning, and his


performance only continues to endear us
to him as he meets the three veiled
maidens who are sent to help him rescue
the princess Pamina. The maidens were
a delight, their voices complementing
each other, and the comedy of the scene
was perfect. Princess Pamina was a joy.
Her voice, powerful yet sensitive, was the
perfect compliment to that of the hero,
Tamino.
The Queen of the Night (Linsey Ohse)
made her dramatic entrance, and with
only one minor note off key, gave a fine
performance. Evil Monostatos, played by
John Tsotsotos, a wonderfully talented
singer and actor, left me wanting to see

the lads, were totally in sync with Opera festival continues with 'Magic Flute'


each other, their voices blending
beautifully, and the children as animals,
were delightful.
Papageno (Sean Anderson) was truly
lovable, funny and talented; his perfor-
mance had us laughing out loud. One of
my favorite scenes was when he and
Papagena, the Old Woman (Katherine
Werbiansky) did their little song and
dance act.
Technical aspects were right on and
the cast gave a performance that I think
Mozart himself would have loved. The
overture was wonderful, the Masonic


influence very apparent, and the orches-
tra continued to delight throughout. My
favorite performance was given by
Sarastro (Young-Bok Kim), the ruler of
the kingdom. His presence was electric
and his magnificent voice filled the
theater.
The Winter opera season continues
through March 21 at the Sarasota Opera
House, 61 N. Pineapple Ave, Sarasota.

performed in repertory and to purchase
tickets, visit www.sarasotaopera.com or

Venice Theatre's 'Annie' is heartwarming


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
With two Annies (Amber Davies
and Angela Potier), a double
cast of orphans and a whole
list of characters right out of the old
comic strip, Venice Theatre's "Annie"
began its four-week run with plenty of
hi-jinks and lots of young talent as well
as several popular Venice Theatre
regulars.
The major scene stealers range from
the littlest orphan, Molly (Ava Pode-
witz), the consummate tycoon with a
heart, Oliver Warbucks (William
Czarniak) and his stunning secretary
with a fabulous voice, Grace Farrell


(Colleen Sudduth) to the evil Miss
Hannigan (Lori Chase) and her conniv-
ing brother, "Rooster" Hannigan (Scott
Vitale).
Directed by Venice Theatre's artistic
director Murray Chase, "Annie" is a
tear-jerking musical with little bits of
humorous "schticks" here and there
that add to and embellish the presenta-
tion. When Ted Devirgilis as Drake
steps over the orphan a few times,
there are chuckles. When the Boylen
Sisters (Danielle Brantley, Kristen
Ainsley Pinkerton and Andrea Haney
Poole) are waiting to perform on the
Oxident Hour of Smiles, their vamping
and mugging to get the attention of


Oliver Warbucks merits more giggles.
Those are just some of the people in
the 29-member cast. There also are
three dogs, including Nugget as Sandy.
Owned by Terry Sarnowski, Nugget
looked and acted the part beautifully.
Choreography was by Cynthia
Ashford with musical direction by
Michelle Kasanofsky and stage man-
agement by Linda Kochmit. Michael
Newton-Brown designed the set;
costumes were by Nicholas Hartman
and lighting was by John Michael
Andzulis. Gabriela Gorka, a technical
apprentice at Venice Theatre, and
Dorian Booyd designed the sound.
"Annie" continues through March 14

'Li'l Abner' lives again


at Golden Apple


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
For more than 40 years, "Li'l
Abner" and his fellow residents of
Dogpatch, U.S.A. entertained
millions in the popular comic strip by Al
Capp and also in the Broadway show
version of the strip, which ran well into
the 1970s.
The Tony Award-winning musical
opens on Feb. 24 at the Sarasota
Golden Apple Dinner Theatre where it
will play through April 4.
As humorous as it was political, the
strip featured Daisy Mae who had eyes
only for Li'l Abner and annually hoped
to catch him in the Sadie Hawkins Day
race. Matthew L. Scott plays the big
strapping Li'l Abner and Samantha
Barrett will portray Daisy Mae. With Elli
Patterson as Mammy Yokum and Bob
Trisolini as Pappy Yokum, laughs and
chuckles should be as prevalent as
they were at breakfast tables all over
America when people read the strip
while eating their morning cereal.


Among the memorable characters
who appear in the show are Confeder-
ate General Jubilation T. Cornpone,
Earthquake McGoon. General
Bullmoose and Marryin Sam.
The comic strip was one of a kind
and so was the hit musical which
combines Hillbilly nonsense with sharp
political satire.
The Apple's producer, Robert Ennis
Turoff, directs with choreography by
Dewayne Barrett, costumes by Dee
Richards and sets by Michael Newton-
Brown. John Visser is the musical
director.
Tickets are $41-43 per person,
including lunch or dinner, depending
on performance time. Tuesday through
Saturday, dinner begins at 6 p.m.
followed by the show at 8 p.m. Satur-
days, lunch is served at noon followed
by a 1:30 show. Sunday, dinner begins
at 4 p.m. and a twilight show at 6 p.m.
The theater is at 25 N. Pineapple Ave.,
Sarasota. Visit www.thegoldenapple.com
or call 941-366-5454.


'Late-nite Catechism II, Sister Strikes Back'


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
t would be a sin to miss "Late-nite
Catechism II, Sister Strikes Back" at
Venice Theatre.
Concerned that she failed to get her
message through to everyone last year,
Sister is coming back with more than a
few prayer cards and rosary beads for
those who finally get her message as she
teaches all those gathered about Heaven
and Hell in three classes at the theater on
Sunday and Monday.
Classes will be at 8 p.m. each evening
and there will be one matinee at 4 p.m. on


March 1. Consider that one a late after-
noon catechism class.
Sister is a master of improve and
although she works from a script (Heaven
forbid she would fail to discuss a sin), it is
when she works one on one with some of
the characters in the class, that the fun
moves into overdrive.
You may want to live the black patent
leather MaryJanes at home for this one
and a dress a bit more conservatively. It is
catechism class, after all.
VeniceTheare is at 140 WTampa Ave., Venice.
Tickets are $30 per person and avail-
able on line at www.venicestage.com or by
phone at 941-488-1115.

Before I look ahead to what's
coming up I have to look back at
a wonderful weekend for music
lovers in Charlotte County.
If you missed the Punta Gorda
Wine and Jazz Festival in Laishley
Park Saturday you missed a great
event according to my sources
-I did miss it, unfortunate-
ly. Lots of great food,
music and weather.
More fun last week at the ,
M Club where Verceal and '
Wilson Wilson put on a
great show Saturday night, even '/
though Wilson was a little under the
weather. And Sunday night was just crazy
at Visani's where the Phantoms of the
Orchestra put on their first "Naughti-Gras."
Not only was the music by Greg Miller
and the Tributes fantastic but Fig
Newton and a great group of volunteers
created a very festive atmosphere that
included the crowning of
Charlotte Symphony Orchestra's
Maestro Francis Wada.
This weekend the big news is the
fabulous Stevefest, starting at 5 p.m.
Friday and running through Sunday
afternoon at the Charlotte County
Fairgrounds, State Road 776 across
from the Charlotte Sports Park.
Among the groups performing with be
Still Friends, featuring friends and family
of the late Steve Blackwell, for whom the
event is dedicated. Other performers -
on two stages include Stoll Vaughn,
Doug Spears, Mindy Simmons, Phil



&C Li7a-j


Lee, Amanda Shires, Brian Molnar,
Paul Cottrell, Michael's Hibiscus Band
and Mike Riley.
If you're looking for something outside
the club scene, the Southwest Florida
Lee County Fair starts Friday and runs
through March 7 at the Lee Civic Center,
11831 Bayshore Road in North
Hackin' Fort Myers.
Around Looking ahead, plan
now for the Golden
S,' Memories show at the
Hi. th Charlotte Harbor Events
^ and Conference Center,
March 18 featuring Wilson
Williams and his Platters, Glenn
Leonard's Temptations Experience,
Pam Darden's Marvelettes Revue and
the Legacy of Clyde McPhatter
and the Drifters. The show will benefit
the Animal Welfare League.
And, finally, if you're a shag dancer
from the Carolinas or Georgia or just love
good ol' music, you can catch the
Swingin' Medallions at Fleamasters in
Fort Myers at 7 p.m. March 6. Tickets are
$15 in advance.


Just a reminder to all the club owners,
band leaders and others involved in the
local entertainment scene this column
is for you and the music lovers and
dancers in Southwest Florida. If you have
a special event coming up or want to
feature a band coming to your club,
e-mail jhackworth8@gmail.com or call
941-206-1147.

Wallenda walks the wire


BREAKING NEWS!

Log onto www.sunnewspapers.net for the latest updates.


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
f you missed Nik Wallenda's high wire
walk from the Watergate Condomini-
um to the Ritz-Carlton Sarasota on
Feb. 4, you still have a few more days to
see the great dare-devil circus performer
in action in the one-ring tent at Tuttle
Avenue and 12th Street in Sarasota.
Wallenda is the grandson of famed Karl
Wallenda who invented the great pyramid
wire walking act that took the lives of two
troupe members and paralyzed a third,
Mario Wallenda, in 1962 at a performance
in Detroit. Nik, who was born and raised in
Sarasota, performs with Circus Sarasota.
Wallenda performs in the circus with
other members of his family, recreating the
famed pyramid at each performance. He is
in the Guinness Book of World Records
for covering "the longest distance at the

greatest height by bicycle on a high
wire."
The Ritz-Carlton walk was similar to
wire walks performed by Karl Wallenda
until his death at the age of 73 in 1978,
after a fall from a wire 121 feet above
San Juan, Puerto Rico. The Sarasota
walk was both higher and longer than
the one which cost Karl his life and was
witnessed by hundreds gathered below
on the site of the old El Verona Hotel,
constructed by the late circus magnate
John Ringling.
Circus Sarasota, founded by Dolly
Jacobs and Pedro Reis, continues its
Sarasota run through Sunday. It will
perform a three-week engagement in
Fort Myers at the Gulf Coast Town
Center March 12-28.

The portions at Casa Nova are big enough
to be able to take some home.


BY SHARE DERRICKSON
SUN CORRESPONDENT
When you walk into Casa Nova
Sports Bar & Grill, it easy to
see that it truly is one of those
places where everyone knows your
name. But it is not merely a bar where
you can belly up and talk to your friends
about your workweek. It is also a place
where families frequently come to enjoy
eating together, being waited on by
folks that know their favorite order.
And, the question is often asked, "Who
made this sauce," and Robert Ellingsen,
the owner of Casa Nova, says, "Little
Momma made the sauce."
"Many times, Momma will have to come
out of the kitchen and meet the people


who are enjoying one of "Momma's
Dinners," and out will walk a diminutive
woman with a thick Italian accent who
seems to always have a smile and a hug."
Rosa Leone, from Rome, Italy,
matches her great food with her wit. "I
am 39-years-old, and I have lived here
50 years," she said with a laugh.
"We really are like a family here,"
Ellingsen said as Momma gave him a
hug before returning to the kitchen.
While never running a restaurant
before, he knew exactly what he
wanted when he was in the planning
stages. "I like the sports bar atmos-
phere. I took a little bit from other
restaurants and put them together,
like wood flooring, metal on the


The restaurant specializes in many salads that are
healthy and hardy.


walls, the bar coming out like it
does, and it's worked."
The name Casa Nova, is a flash from
his past. "It is from a place in Lansing,
Michigan. My parents and I loved to
eat there. So, I decided that this is
what I wanted to do."
A novelty is that a majority of the
booths have their own television. "We
like to sit and watch television and
eat, so I thought others would like
that and it is a very popular feature."
But the most popular feature may well
be the food. Dennis Stevens, the head
chef at Casa Nova, said he is quite
proud at the quality of food they can
offer for very reasonable prices. "We don't
skimp on quality, but we keep our prices
affordable," he said.
"Yes, we stand out for real good food at
cheap prices," Ellingsen added. "We have a
wide variety of choices."
Ellingsen said that Saturday evenings are


Affordable but quality steak dinners are
always a popular choice.
steak night and that has become very
popular with choices like a fillet, rib eye,
and a prime rib dinner runs for less than $8
We also run pizza specials like Philly
Cheese or Mexican'
The types of cuisine runs the gambit
from hot and cold sandwiches, to brick
oven pizza, chicken or fish baskets,
"Momma's Dinners" with a dozen
different Italian dishes, grill items, and
fresh fish. "We have something for
everyone," Stevens said.
Coming up on its one year
anniversary, the restaurant has
already made a name for themselves
for catering to those who love home
style cooking at reasonable prices.
"We have lunch specials that start at
$3.99," Stevens said. "And it's good food."
Casa Nova is located at 1599 S. McCall
Road toward Englewood from Port
Charlotte and can be reached at
941-474-6682.

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.

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 Ameri-
ca, 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.


Cop Out (R
Two longtime NYPD partners
on the trail of a stolen, rare, mint-
condition baseball card find


---


themselves up against a
merciless, memorabilia-
obsessed gangster. Jimmy the
veteran detective whose missing col-
lectible is his only hope to pay for his
daughter's upcoming wedding, and Paul is
his "partner-against-crime" whose
preoccupation with his wife's alleged
infidelity makes it hard for him to keep his
eye on the ball.

The Crazies (R)
David Dutten (Timothy Olyphant) is
sheriff of Ogden Marsh, a picture-perfect
American town with happy, law-abiding
citizens. But one night, one of them


TO IVIU'



comes to a school baseball
game with a loaded shotgun,
ready to kill. Another man burns
down his own house...after J
locking his wife and young son
in a closet inside. Within days,
the town has transformed into
a sickening asylum; people
who days ago lived quiet, unremarkable
lives have now become depraved, blood-
thirsty killers, hiding in the darkness
with guns and knives. Sheriff Dutten
tries to make sense of what's happen-
ing as the horrific, nonsensical vio-
lence escalates. Something is infecting
the citizens of Ogden Marsh...with
insanity. Now complete anarchy reigns
as one by one the townsfolk succumb
to an unknown toxin and turn sadisti-
cally violent. In an effort to keep the
madness contained, the government
uses deadly force to close off all
access and won't let anyone in or out -
even those uninfected.

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 increasing-
ly 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.

From Paris With Love (R) B
A low-ranking intelligence operative
(Jonathan Rhys Meyers) working in the
office of the U.S. Ambassador in
France takes on more than he bar-
gained 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.


Percy
Jackson &
the
Olympians:
The
Lightning 4W
Thief (PG)
B-
Trouble-prone
teen Percy
Jackson is about
to be kicked out
school but
that's the least of
his problems. The
gods of Mount Olympu-. an:ri
assorted monsters seem to have
walked out of the pages of Percy's
Greek mythology texts and into his life
- and they're not happy. Zeus' lightning
bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the
prime suspect. Now, Percy and his
friends must embark on a cross-country
adventure to catch the true thief, save
Percy's family, and unravel a mystery
more powerful than the gods them-
selves.

Sherlock Holmes (PG-13) B
In a dynamic new portrayal of Arthur
Conan Doyle's most famous characters,
Sherlock Holmes and his stalwart
partner Watson embark on their latest
challenge. Revealing fighting skills as
lethal as his legendary intellect, Holmes
battles as never before to bring down a
new nemesis and unravel a deadly plot
that could destroy the country.

Shutter Island (R) A-
The project centers on a U.S. marshal
(Mark Ruffalo) who along with his new
partner (Leonardo DiCaprio) travels to a
Massachusetts island to investigate the
disappearance of a patient from a
hospital for the criminally insane. During
their inquiry the two encounter a web
of deceit, experience a hurricane and
become involved in a deadly inmate riot
that leaves them trapped on the island.
Ben Kingsley will play Dr. Cawley, the
hospital's enigmatic chief physician who
must reluctantly play host to the two
U.S. marshals.


The Tooth Fairy (PG) B
Tess is a 6-years-old girl who is very
dissapointed when
Derek (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson)
tells her that the tooth fairy isn't real.
Derek is left to try and save the tooth
fairy kingdom.

Up in the Air (R) B+
"Up in the Air" starring George
Clooney as Ryan Bingham, a corporate
downsizing expert whose cherished life
on the road is threatened just as he is
on the cusp of reaching ten million
frequent flyer miles and just after he's
met the frequent-traveler woman of his
dreams.

Valentine's Day (PG-13) C
A film about 10 people in Los Angeles
whose lives intersect on the romantic holiday.

The Wolfman (R) C
Though absent from his ancestral
home of Blackmoor for many years,
aristocrat Lawrence Talbot (Benicio Del
Toro) returns to find his missing brother
at the request of the latter's fiancee,
Gwen (Emily Blunt). He learns that a
creature has links to an ancient curse
turning people into werewolves when the
moon is full. To save the village and
protect Gwen, he must slay the blood-
thirsty beast, but he contends with a
horrifying family legacy.

The paved model airfield measures 50
by 450 feet and has a parallel 100 by 500-
foot grass runway, four screen pilot boxes,
fenced pit area and 20 model set-up


tables with canopies for
protection from the sun. The
spectator area is shaded
and screened.
Organized by the RC

show runs from
