Buchanan gets earful on airport


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR


Congressman Vern Buchan-
an came to Venice Tuesday to
talk to some of his constituents
about transportation and
spent a good bit of his time lis-
tening to a discussion about
the Venice Municipal Airport.
He and House Transpor-
tation & Infrastructure Com-
mittee Republican Leader
John Mica, R-FL 7th District,
talked about the hurdles
they've encountered trying to
get a new highway bill passed
and some of the shortcomings


in the stimulus bills Congress
adopted last year.
Then Buchanan, who sits
on his committee's aviation
subcommittee, asked for an
update on the debate over
whether the airport should be
designated a B-II or C-II facili-
ty by the Federal Aviation
Administration.
"Unless the city is really
committed, I can't do anything
for you," he said.
With two speakers support-
ing B-II and two supporting C-
II, it's doubtful he saw the level
of commitment he was look-
ing for.


Venice Mayor Ed Martin led
off by saying the current C-II
designation is the result of an
FAA mistake in 2000. In reality,
he said, the airport is properly
a B-II facility but as a result of
that mistake is being told to
comply with C-II safety stan-
dards.
The result, he said, is that 25
houses in the Gulf Shores
neighborhood are within a
runway protection zone and
are recommended "not
mandated" by the FAA for
city acquisition and removal.

Dog lovers seek Paw Park expansion

Dog lovers brave a blustery day at Brohard Beach Paw Park in Venice. Friends of Paw Park asked city leaders on Tuesday to expand the
beach south.


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

About 80 people showed
up at city hall Tuesday to give
their support for Brohard
Beach Paw Park and to ask
council members to consider
extending the boundary
south, saying the park has
grown in popularity and it's
time to expand it.
Some raised concerns that
the Maxine Barritt Park, once


completed, may attract park
goers who may not be dog
friendly. The new park sits
past the dunes from Paw Park
Beach and new boardwalks
will bring those park goers
right onto the dog beach.
"People who are not dog
people (who) are going to be
bringing their blankets and
food down to the beach," said
Georgia Hoffner. "Well, when
you let a dog free, he's going
to fix that good. I see a con-


flict. Has council looked at
that?"
She recommended sig-
nage as one possible remedy.
"The park is therapeutic,
but it's crowded," said anoth-
er.
More than a few residents
said they moved to Venice
specifically to be near the
unique park.
Hoffner brought a petition
with more than 300 signa-
tures she collected over three


days in support of the park
and the expansion.
Mayor Ed Martin assured
the group he had heard noth-
ing but good things about the
park, and mentioned city
council had, in fact, approv-
ed a public restroom and
additional parking right next
to Paw Park as part of the
Maxine Barritt Park project.
Martin said he heard their

Utilities rate

hike one

step closer

BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

After heated discussion the
Venice City Council on Tues-
day directed staff to draft an
ordinance increasing utility
rates.
Under city rules council
couldn't vote on the increase in
a workshop setting. Instead
they directed staff to bring a
draft ordinance before it for
consideration.
Council voted 4-3 to sup-
port the second most expen-
sive option of four presented.
The plan is to increase water
and sewer rates an average of 5
percent and 6 percent respec-
tively over two years, then
lower the increase to 3 percent
for the next eight years.
The first two options didn't
address key issues, like imple-
menting a renewal and re-
placement program, which
many agree is a must to get the
utilities department out of
debt. Nor did the first two
options, which called for a 3
percent increase each of the
first two years, provide enough
cash flow to keep the city's
bond rating in good standing.
A fourth option was too expen-
sive, members said.
Complicating matters was a
request by City Manager Isaac
Turner to implement the rate
increase immediately, instead
of in October when a 3 percent
increase is already planned.
Council Member John
Moore objected, saying that
would bring the increase to
nearly 12 percent within one
calendar year (the 3 percent
put into place in October 2009,
followed by the 5 percent rate
increase in March 2010, on top

Cruisers 'e-weigh' in on Higel dock


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


It didn't take long for word
to get around Florida and the
rest of the East Coast that the
city of Venice plans to close the
Higel boat dock to overnight
stays.
In fact, it's become a cause
celebre on online cruiser for-
ums.
Some were saddened by the
rule change and asked the city
to reconsider. Others were an-
gered and promised to bypass
Venice in the future and take
their tourist dollars elsewhere.


A few asked if the city had con-
ducted an economic impact
study before acting, noting
they spend $350 or more in the
area on a typical visit.
Council first considered a
proposed ordinance on Feb. 23
that will ban overnight stays at
the Higel Boat dock, which can
accommodate a half dozen or
so boats. The boat ramp and its
parking lot will remain open
overnight. Under the new ordi-
nance, boats can dock there
for free from 6 a.m. to mid-
night, but not overnight.
The city made the change to
attract a vendor as its harbor


master for a planned 16-space
moorage facility. The free
docking was preventing the
city from obtaining bids, city
officials said. Plenty of dockage
is available in the immediate
area for a fee, including at The
Crow's Nest, Marker 4 and
Marine Max, they said.
Cruisers on a budget say the
decision would make them
choose between paying a
moorage fee and staying on-
board to eat, or staying for free
and spending their money
elsewhere in the community

Thousands cast early referendum votes


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

Countywide, through
Friday 6,053 registered
voters had taken advan-
tage of early voting to
cast their ballots in the
special school referen-
dum scheduled for
March 16.
The Robert L. Ander-
son Administration Cen-
ter in South Venice record-
ed 433 votes cast Friday.
In Sarasota, the main
elections office had 419.
According to the Sara-
sota County Supervisor
of Elections Office, there
are more than 258,900
registered voters county-
wide.
Voters are spending
about five to six minutes
to cast their ballots,
according to Sarasota
County election staffer
Liz Brennan. She said the
procedure has been
smooth so far, with no
lines as people come in
sporadically to vote.
"We see a lot of the
same people coming
through here, which is
nice," Brennan said. She
said a few voters have
been accompanied by
their small children as an
exercise in seeing how
the process works.
The Sarasota County
school district is asking
residents to continue
the 1 mill school tax
that was introduced and
approved at its current
millage in 2002, then
reapproved in 2006.
Amill is $1 per $1,000 of
a property's taxable value.
The amount equates to
about 30 cents to 39 cents
per day, depending on
the assessed value of a
home.
A random sampling
of midday voters Friday
showed that, whether
they voted for or against
the referendum, they all


Supporters and opponents of the school millage referendum brave the rain to try to influence voters. Early voting ends
Sunday; Election Day is Tuesday.


TO VOTE EARLY
Early voting for the Sarasota County special
school referendum ends Sunday, March 14. Until
then, registered voters can choose one of three
sites to cast their ballot: the main elections office at
2001 Adams Lane, Sarasota; the Robert L.
Anderson Administration Center, Room 114, 4000
South Tamiami Trail, Venice; or Biscayne Plaza,
13640 Tamiami Trail, North Port.
Hours are 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Wednesday
through Friday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday and 1-5 p.m.
Sunday.
On Election Day, March 16, voters must vote in
the precinct where they live, and provide a photo ID
and signature ID.
For additional voter information, call 861-8619 or

agreed on one thing:
Early voting is a chance
to avoid Election Day
crowds.
North Port resident
Judy O'Brien said she is
an early voter because of
the crowds and because
"I'm really eager" to vote.
"I like to come early,"
she said.
O'Brien said she voted
in support of the refer-
endum.
"I feel that sports, arts
... all of those (activities)


... are the foundation of a
good education," she
said. "They keep children
interested in school."
John Moore, also of
North Port, said he votes
early to avoid a crowd
but "I hope there is one"
regarding the referen-
dum.
Moore said he voted
to retain the tax, but,
"we need to be very
transparent in where
and how we are spend-
ing this money."


Pro and con
A five-year resident
from New England who
declined to identify
himself said he voted
against the referendum.
He listed three reasons
for his vote the school
district has enough
money to operate, the
district must take some
tough action to put the
budget in line and the
current economy and
his taxes are burden-
some enough.
North Port residents
Maureen and John Mur-
phy had one Florida kid
in mind when they voted
in favor of the tax exten-
sion a grandson who
attends Toledo Blade
Elementary School.
'A good education is
absolutely necessary in
today's society," Maureen
Murphy said.
"If it costs me a couple
of bucks more, it's worth
it," John Murphy added.
If approved, the
money from the 1 mill
tax will continue paying
for arts, dance, sports,
dual enrollment and


Roundabout timetable includes 'season'


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


Whatever problems the Venice-
area roundabout may or may not
cause, its timing will have an
impact on traffic.
"With a 270-day roundabout
programmed construction period,
there is not much way to avoid hit-
ting the rainy season and the next
peak traffic snowbird season," said
Jim Ballenger, PE., project manager,
Sarasota County CMS Mobility.
Progress gains momentum this
month on the roundabout project,
at the intersection of East Venice
Avenue and Jacaranda Boulevard.
With a start date of May or June,
bids close March 17 for the esti-
mated $5.1 million project.


Verifying the lowest bid, inves-
tigation of the contractor, precon-
struction meetings, subcontrac-
tor hiring, site drawings and asso-
ciated work will take two months
before approval by Sarasota
County Commissioners.
The controversial roundabout
will replace the existing traffic-
light-controlled intersection, which
is considered to be accident-prone.
It is on the evacuation route to
Interstate 75 for city, northern Engle-
wood and North Port residents.
Approach roads to the junction
will be widened starting approxi-
mately a quarter of a mile from the
circle for access and exit in all four
directions. A total of 4,700 feet of
roadway including improvements
to both Jacaranda Boulevard and


IX


EastVenice Avenue will be affected.
The roundabout will be 200 feet
across with a 10-foot concrete truck
apron along the inside edge of the
pavement and a mountable curb to
accommodate larger vehicles. It
will be constructed for two lanes
but plans will allow an increase to
three lanes in the future.
Landscaping will include taller
trees in the center to provide ade-
quate driver visibility around the
circle. Throughout the course of
construction the existing traffic
signals will remain in place until
ready for a safe transition.
Drivers seeking more infor-
mation on using roundabouts

However, local princi-
pals say their students
have benefited from the
tax.
Referendum oppo-
nents have also criti-
cized the cost of the
special election and
asked whether it could
have piggybacked on
another election. As part
of the special election
procedure, $500,000 was
paid to the election
office, Scott Farrington,
assistant supervisor of
elections, said. He said
the true cost of the elec-
tion could be $430,000 to
$450,000, with the dif-
ference returned to the
county school district.
Farrington said there
were no countywide
elections in 2009, so
there was no opportu-
nity to piggyback an
election.
Scott Ferguson, school
district communications
specialist, said the March
16 date was chosen to
provide more current
information to the school
board as it works to pre-
pare its annual budget.
The school district's fiscal
year begins July 1 and
ends June 30.

County issues rabies

alert after otter attack


FROM SARASOTA
COUNTY HEALTH
DEPARTMENT

The Sarasota County
Health Department
issued a rabies alert after
confirmation that the
otter that attacked a 96-
year-old man and a per-
son trying to help him
tested positive for rabies.
Another otter tested pos-
itive for rabies in mid-
February after attacking
two horses in Engle-
wood.
The vast majority of
rabies cases occur in wild
animals such as rac-
coons, skunks, feral cats,
bobcats, bats, coyotes,
otters and foxes, accord-
ing to the health depart-
ment. Domestic animals
including cats, dogs and
ferrets are at risk if not
vaccinated.
People bitten by an
animal are urged to go to
a hospital, family doctor
or county health depart-
ment for immediate
medical attention. The
bite site should be
washed with soap and
running water for five to
10 minutes.
The Sarasota County
Health Department
urges the public to take
the following steps to
prevent the exposure to
rabies:
Pet owners are urged
to keep rabies vaccina-
tions up-to-date for their
pets. They can be immu-
nized with one-year or
three-year vaccinations.
Be cautious around
wildlife displaying suspi-
cious signs of behavior,
such as unusual aggres-
sion and/or the lack of
fear of humans and
unusual daylight activity.
Report them to Sarasota
County Animal Services,
861-9500, or the health
department, 861-6133.

WORDS WORTH
HEARING


Vicki M. Connell
Doctor of Audiology A


What are the
advantages to having
hearing aids with
"Bluetooth"
technology?

Today's hearing aids are
experiencing a wireless
revolution just like other
technologies such as
wireless internet and
wireless car pieces for
our cell phones.
Bluetooth hearing aids
receive radio wave
signal which are sent out
by devices such as
televisions and cell
phones. The signal is
more clear and
comfortable because a
direct connection
eliminates interference
from room reverberation
and background noise.
When you listen to
television with
conventional hearing
aids, the sound leaves
the TV's speakers,
travels across the room
to your hearing aids and
is amplified along with
any background noise
that may be present.
With bluetooth hearing
aids, the sound of the
TV does not have to
travel across the room,
but instead, is streamed
directly into your


hearing aids


which


results in better clarity,
even in noisy
environments. And if
you have trouble hearing
clearly on your cell
phone, a bluetooth
hearing system can be
programmed to send
your cell phone calls
directly to your hearing
aids in the same way.
Speak to the Audiologist
at Woodmere Hearing &
Balance Center, Inc. at
(941) 492-4327 to learn
more about the
advantages of this latest
technology.

VENICE AREA MOBILE MEALS
The Chamber's Education & Business Development Committee proudly
recognizes a non-profit organization that has dedicated 40 years of com-
munity service providing nourishing warm meals six days a week, Monday
through Saturday, 52 weeks a year, including holidays.
Venice Area Mobile Meals better known as "Meals on Wheels" is a
partner with Village on The Isle of Venice, provider of the nutritious noon-
time meals. The Meals on Wheels large roster of volunteers coordinate
and deliver meals in 14 routes from Osprey to Manasota Beach and River
Road encompassing all of the Greater Venice area.
A minimum fee is charged as the organization receives no financial sup-
port what so ever for their services, relying only on community donations.
Recipients are widows orwidowers who cannot prepare a meal themselves,
physically compromised disabled, recent convalescing hospital patients
and the elderly.
Many testimonial letters were received saluting the dedicated Venice meals
program. Here are just a few examples: "They provide meals that are
especially good, variety is outstanding, and portions are large enough that
I divide them into two meals lunch and dinner." I am one of the lucky
ones who receive Meals on Wheels weekly. No one over 65 years needs
to go hungry, whether or not they are able to pay for a good healthy warm
meal." "Many, many thanks to Meals on Wheels as not only can I depend
on a delicious lunch, the drivers provide companionship as being home
bound they are the only people I see all day. They even help in bringing
in my newspaper and mail and make sure that I'm all right." And finally, "
As an 85 year old widow, I look forward to my friendly driver dropping by
with my meal and a cheerful good morning even during stormy weather
and holidays they are truly dedicated volunteers!"
You can contact Meals on Wheels at their office at Village on The Isle, 920

How free is


KELLI TARALA
COMPUTER COLUMNIST


Recently, we heard three
personal stories about people
getting locked out of Gmail
because their account had
been hacked. Two of these cas-
es were here in Sarasota Coun-
ty.
Their accounts had been
compromised and then used
to send harassing e-mails to
the contacts stored with that e-
mail address. Threats, de-
mands for money and even
death threats were associated
with these compromised ac-
counts.
Not only is it heartbreaking
to hear the stress and anguish
that people go through when
they cannot access contact
information or important e-
mails these people were
afraid that someone was going
to hurt them or their family.
This article is a cautionary
tale about using free e-mail
services. There are costs. They
are generally hidden, and they
emerge when there is a prob-
lem.
If your account becomes
compromised, your reputa-
tion will suffer. Your compro-
mised account can potentially
send threats and demands for
money to your friends, family,
business contacts and poten-
tial customers.
What happened?
A user tried to log into
Gmail, with e-mail address
and password, and found out
that his password would not
work. While going through the


help screens from Google, the
user supplied the username
and Google responded that it
would send the password re-
covery information to a sec-
ondary e-mail address. In
these cases, the secondary e-
mail address had been re-
placed by a bogus e-mail ad-
dress. The rightful owner of the
Gmail account could not reset
the password.
The password recovery pro-
cedure failed because crimi-
nals replaced the original sec-
ondary e-mail address with a
bogus e-mail. Once the pass-
word recovery fails, Google
directs users to fill out an
account recovery form.


... more than 30,000
Hotmail, Gmail,
Yahoo, AOL, Comcast
and Earthlink
accounts had been
posted online."
Computer
Columnist Kelli Tarala


Let's not forget that the user
still cannot access e-mail, con-
tacts or anything else stored in
Gmail. The compromised ac-
count is pumping out threat-
ening e-mails to all the con-
tacts in that e-mail account.
Recovery
The account recovery form
required you to provide a list of
Google products associated
with the locked account and
the date when you started
using each Google product.
The form also asks for account
creation date, last successful
log-in date and the last pass-
word the owner remembered.
Could you remember all that?
Last October, Google con-
firmed that thousands of
Gmail accounts were compro-
mised by an "industry-wide


?
.


phishing scheme." According
to the BBC, the log-in data of
more than 30,000 Hotmail,
Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, Comcast
and Earthlink accounts had
been posted online. Hackers
and criminals alike can pur-
chase your log-in data in un-
derground cyber markets.
Online forums and blogs
are reporting that Google has
taken up to two weeks to re-
store access to accounts that
were compromised. That means
no access to those important e-
mails and contacts. Further-
more, free e-mail services do
not back up your e-mails.
Free e-mail services work
great for newsletters and keep-
ing in touch with friends, but
free e-mail services are a risky
proposition for entrepreneurs
and business owners who
need timely information to
make decisions. Successful
businesses cannot be without
e-mail or customer contacts
for even one hour.
According to the National
Archives & Records Admin-
istration in Washington, D.C.,
93 percent of companies that
lost their data for 10 days or
more filed for bankruptcy
within one year of the disaster,
and 50 percent filed for bank-
ruptcy immediately. Could
that be your business?
Remember to protect your-
self online by changing pass-
words frequently and watch-
ing for any odd behavior.
Never, ever, use the same pass-
word on multiple Web sites. If
one site become compromis-
ed, now all Web sites with the
same password are potentially
compromised.

Check contractor's license online


Protect yourself against
unlicensed contractors

FROM DBPR

Checking a contractor's li-
cense is the best way con-
sumers can protect themselves
from unlicensed activity, and
it's now easier than before to
do it online.
The only information a con-
sumer needs to check a con-
tractor's license online is the
first and last name of the con-
tractor; the name of the busi-
ness is no longer necessary.
The 2009 Legislature elimi-
nated the qualified business li-
cense for construction compa-
nies, and the Department of
Business and Professional
Regulation has made Web en-
hancements to ensure con-
sumers can easily check li-
censes online.
The Construction Industry
Licensing Board only licenses
individuals as contractors to
perform construction work
pursuant to Chapter 489, Flor-
ida Statutes.
In order to do business as a
corporation, partnership, lim-


ited liability company or any
business entity other than a
sole proprietorship, the con-
tractor must be approved to
qualify that business entity.
The name of the approved
business entity appears on the
contractor's individual license.
Employees of licensed con-
tractors are not required to
have individual licenses; the
contractor assumes responsi-
bility for his or her employees'
work.
If the contractor is operat-
ing as an individual without a
business name, the word "In-
dividual" will appear on the
contractor's license.
To verify that a contractor is
licensed, visit MyFloridaLicense.
com. Click on "Verify a Li-
cense." Select "Search by
Name" and click "Search." En-
ter the contractor's last and
first names. Select "License
Category" and click "Con-
struction Industry." Click
"Search."
A list of licenses that match
the individual name entered
will be displayed. Click on each
record to view the business
name associated with that
license.


New restaurant: Fired Up fires up next month


ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


"We are making good pro-
gress," said owner Larry Ter-
rell, who with son Al expects
the beginning of next month to
see the opening of the first
Fired Up Burgers and Ribs
restaurant, 563 North U.S. 41
Bypass, in the former Wendy's
at Bird Bay Plaza.
Kitchen equipment, tables
and chairs arrive this week and
contractors are building coun-
ters. Terrell intends to hire about
16 people later this month.
The restaurant is a new din-
ing concept catering to 88 din-
ers, including seating on an
outside patio. A niche concept
between fast food and casual


dining, it will have a limited
menu for lunch and dinner,
offering steaks, ribs, barbecue
brisket and pulled pork togeth-
er with select wraps, sand-
wiches and salads.
Terrell grew up in Wauchula,
and during his 27-year career as
a restaurant start-up entrepre-
neur has created more than 50
restaurants operating in 17
states, including Whiskey Creek
Grills and Durango Steak-
houses.
Oxygen expands
Moved recently to a central
location with additional park-
ing is Oxygen Hair Salon, 1057
South U.S. 41 Bypass in the
Venice Isle Center. Doubling
the size of the salon enables
owner Irina Antipov to extend
the relaxation area.
Antipov, with Lucy Pokrov-
sky, Steve Geary and Roberta
Yoze, provides styling, cutting,
coloring, highlighting and
perms. Future plans include
introducing pedicures and
manicures.
Pokrovsky opened the salon
two years ago, then sold it to
Antipov, returning to rejoin the


team. Both are from the
Ukraine, where Antipov gradu-
ated in cosmetology. She spent
seven years in Portland, Ore.,
before coming to Sarasota and
purchasing the Venice business.
The salon opens at 10 a.m.
Tuesday through Saturday. Call
493-8899.
Third office
Finding the most-suitable
retirement services for the
client, with more flexibility and
selectivity, is the objective of
Mike Lester, who recently
opened his third insurance
office. ING Financial Partners,
1800 South Tamiami Trail,
across from Lowe's in South
Venice, follows the success of
offices he started in 2005 in
The Villages and Somerfield.
A broker-dealer, his services
encompass stocks, bonds,
mutual funds and life insur-
ance annuities.
Lester grew up in Jackson-
ville, moving to Illinois as a
grain merchandiser at the Chi-
cago Mercantile Exchange,
then returning to Tampa to
start his own insurance com-
pany. Office hours are 9 a.m.-4


p.m. weekdays. Call 932-8000.
Donate to the
community
If you or your neighbors are
clearing out a home before you
leave to return North and have
unwanted items, consider
donating to the new Venice
Salvation Army Family Store,
1168 South U.S. 41 Bypass.
Eighty-two cents of every dol-
lar donated comes back to this
community, said Mike Levine,
store program director.
Ownership of the Osprey
Salvation Army Store and the
Venice store changed to the
Venice Division, providing for
all income to be used locally.
Drop-off is 8 a.m.-4 p.m.
Monday though Saturday at

Michael King's appeal is to Supreme Court


BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER

The judge who presided
over Michael King's capital
murder trial has 20 days to
send all paperwork to the
Florida Supreme Court for his
mandatory appeal.
King's attorney, Assistant
Public Defender Carolyn
Schlemmer, sat in a Sarasota
County courtroom Monday
near Assistant State Attorney
Lon Arend during a short hear-
ing. Neither had much to say


to Circuit Judge Deno Eco-
nomou during the five-minute
hearing.
"The law orders (the judge)
to check on the status of the
case," Schlemmer said.
In December, Schlemmer
filed a list of 21 reasons why
King should not be put to
death, including that the death
penalty is "unconstitutional"
and the state should not have
used eyewitness 9-1-1 calls as
evidence during his trial last
fall.
King, 38, who is now on death


Srow, was found
guilty of the
kidnapping,
rape and mur-
der of 21-year-
old Denise
Amber Lee.
Kingkidnap-
ped the mo-
King their of two at
gunpoint
from her North Port home on
Jan. 17,2008. Her remains were
found two days later buried in
a wooded area off Toledo Blade
Boulevard.


After a three-week trial that
ended in September, all 12
jurors recommended a death
sentence.
Economou sentenced King
to death in December. Florida
law requires an automatic
appeal in all capital murder
cases.
Photos of evidence from the
trial will be reproduced in
color and submitted to the
Supreme Court.
During the appeal process,
new attorneys for King can
challenge portions of the trial,


including mistakes they be-
lieve Schlemmer may have
made, she said.
In her appeal, Schlemmer
wrote that King was denied a
change of venue outside of
Sarasota, and therefore was
not given a fair trial. She said
local and national pretrial
publicity made the case well-
known.
It could take three more
years before King's case is
heard by the state Supreme
Court.

Sex offender arrest
Craig
Allen
BrenI -
nan is a
known Z
sex of-
fender,
accord-
ing to a
Sarasota Brennan
County nn
Sheriff's
Office report. He was
recently arrested by the
Sarasota Police Depart-
ment in connection with
the failure to report his
current address.
Brennan was incarcer-
ated at the county jail in
March 2008 in connec-
tion with failing to up-
date his information. An
SCSO detective checked
on him on Jan. 1, 2009,
and he was still incarcer-
ated with a tentative re-
lease date of July 1, 2009.
The detective checked
again and learned Bren-
nan was released from
the county jail on May
20, 2009, with his address
listed as transient. His
driver license showed his
address to be 450 Briar-
wood Road, Venice. How-
ever, the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforce-


ment had his address
listed as transient.
On June 29, 2009, the
detective received an e-
mail from an FDLE offi-
cer stating that Brennan
had no current forms
since March 2008.
Brennan was located
at the Briarwood address,
arrested and charged with
sex offender violation
(failure to report name or
residence change). His
bond is $1,000.
Violent reaction
A
woman
told her
38-year-
old ex-
bo y -
friend
she did-
n't want
to dateHummel
again,
so he punched her, ac-
cording to a Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office
report.
The incident occurred
in a parking lot in the
1600 block of South
Tamiami Trail, after the
boyfriend became angry.
When he hit his former
girlfriend she fell to the


ground, where he kicked
her and punched her in
the face several times.
She was treated by
paramedics at the scene
and transported to the
hospital with severe neck
pain and a possible bro-
ken nose.
Craig Randall Hum-
mel, 1900 block San Sil-
vestro Drive, Venice, was
arrested and charged
with battery (touch or
strike). His bond is
$10,000.

Portions of the Lake Venice Golf
Club are also in jeopardy.
Changing the designation to B-
II would shrink the RPZ, saving
the homes and the golf course.

'Food fight'

But if that happened, ac-
cording to Chuck Schmieler,
president of the Venice Airport
Business Association, it would


cut the usable length of the run-
ways and reduce the amount of
turbine-plane traffic, not just
jets, that the airport could han-
dle. He has previously said that
such an impact on the airport
would violate covenants and
assurances that bind the city.
"There's a fixation on the
classification of the airport," he
said.
Besides, he added, there were
no runway protection zones


before 2000. That safety margin
was called a "clear zone," and
maps show there has been one
over Gulf Shores since at least
1969. He also questioned
whether the city can sell the FAA
on a B-II designation, which the
agency has so far shown little
interest in. He thinks the FAA
isn't happy with the way the city
has been running the airport
and isn't likely to be flexible
when it receives the new airport


master plan.
Council Member Emilio
Carlesimo told Buchanan and
Mica that council had recently
rejected a compromise that
would have left runway 13-31
the same length but changed its
location, taking away length at
the west end and adding it at the
east end. That decision was
made, though, because a traffic
count showed the airport won't
have the traffic that would justi-

fy a C-II designation for at least
20 years, Council Member Sue
Lang said.
Mica said he would have
Aviation Subcommittee staff do
an analysis of the pluses and
minuses of the two classifica-
tions, but that it's the city's dis-
pute to solve.
"The problem Vern and I
have," he said, "is we can't be
the referee in a food fight."

Sharky's owner Mike

"It's embellished that

of the 3 percent already
scheduled for October
2010).
Council Member Jim
Bennett said he preferred
a 4.5 percent annual
increase for an extended
period. Members agreed
that could be revisited
when the ordinance
comes before council on
first reading later this
month.
Voting in favor were
Mayor Ed Martin, Emilio
Carlesimo, Kit McKeon
and Ernie Zavodnyik.
Bennett, Sue Lang and
Moore voted against the
increase.
The plan
The financial plan
developed by Robert
Chambers of Malcolm
Pirnie provides an addi-
tional 5 percent rate
increase in fiscal year
2010, a 30-day reserve
balance within two years
to address catastrophic
repairs, funds 10 percent
of a renewal and replace-
ment program at $1 mil-
lion each year for 10 years,
and beginning after five
years (after the communi-
ty performance center is
paid off) redirects all
available 1-cent surtax
proceeds into utilities
infrastructure. Council
will have to approve a
reprioritized surtax list at
a separate public hear-
ing.
It was a difficult deci-
sion for council, who
were also warned by
Chambers that Fitch, the
company that sets bond
ratings, "believes that the
political willingness to
raise rates is perhaps the
greatest threat to sector
financial stability over
the near-term."
Nevertheless, faced
with increasing water
main breaks from pipes
that date back from the
1920s to 1960s, and a
water filtration plant in
need of emergency re-
pairs, council felt it had
little no choice.
Mayor Martin said it
was another problem -
and a significant one -
left behind by previous
councils.
"I'm not even sure
they knew" about the
extent of the problems,
Martin said about the
previous councils. It was
allowed it to grow for
years until utilities staff
"raised the red flag," he
said.
Frustrated
Lang and Martin got
into a shouting match


when Lang, frustrated at
not hearing about the
utility department's
financial woes much ear-
lier, lashed out at staff
and questioned council's
own decisions.
She was responding to
Turner's latest caution
that a multi-million dol-
lar membrane for the
reverse osmosis plant is
imperative and must be
worked into the rate hike.
"If that is the case, that
we should have replaced
this membrane (years
ago), then we should not
have moved up the
school funding and
should apply every pen-
ny of the surtax to re-
place this membrane,"
Lang said.
Council agreed last
year to spend $7 million
in surtax funding on the
community perfor-
mance arts center which
was moved up on the pri-
ority list when Sarasota
County School Board
decided it could build the
performance center for
much less if it was com-
pleted sooner. That tied
up four years worth of
surtax proceeds.
Weeks ago during a
strategic planning work-
shop Lang asked a simi-
lar question. If the utili-
ties infrastructure of the
city is in such disrepair,
then why did the city
purchase Legacy Park for
$7.5 million?
"This is a meaningless
discussion, Sue," Martin
said. "I don't know how
many times I told you ...
we are not going back.
You are going back over
and recriminating your-
self over an issue you
voted for," Martin said in
frustration.
'Are you blaming
yourself for ...?"
"I am blaming staff,"
Lang interrupted.
"... all right," Martin
said. "You have blamed
the staff. You're just
shooting around (in) the
air. And it is not a sensi-
ble thing to do."
When Lang wouldn't
stop complaining, Mart-
in gaveled a recess. It
wasn't clear if Martin was
gaveling Lang out of
order or was giving him-
self a time out to cool
down. He took a short
walk. Lang went over to
where city Finance Di-
rector Jeff Snyder and
Isaac Turner had congre-
gated and continued to
scold Turner.

we don't necessarily think free
dockage is a good thing. It primar-
ily was designed for launching.
People can still dock and get lunch
or go to the store."
Council Member Sue Lang said
it's her understanding the planned
mooring field could take another
year to complete. She asked if
something could be done in the
interim to accommodate tempo-
rary moorings. Venice Marine
Officer Phil Phillips said boaters
can go any place in Higel basin
that doesn't block a waterway and
drop an anchor if the vessel is
properly marked and lit.
"Where I come from, boating is
a luxury. If you can afford boating,
you ought to be able to afford the
costs associated with boating,"
said Council Member Ernie Za-
vodnyik. "I find it a little bit unsa-
vory that (people who) can afford
boating are asking the city and the
public to provide free docks."
"I've been a boater all my life,"
said Council Member John Moore.
"I've never expected free dockage."
In the end, Martin said, "bygone
eras are bygone eras. I am hoping
people will continued to find Ven-
ice as attractive as they have in the
past."
On Tuesday council unani-
mously passed on final reading the
new ban on overnight dockage. It
goes into effect immediately.
Below are a few of the e-mail
messages received by council.



Loopers
"We are one of the 500 to 700
looperss' that go down the West
Coast every year. Venice was a
lovely place. Now they are going to
close the free dock, which a lot of
us boaters depend on while cruis-
ing to cut our costs even though
we will spend money on good
food. Would love to enjoy the town
if they were more accommodat-
ing." Roy and Elvie


Shortsighted
"I am a member of St. PeteYacht
Club, Isla Del Sol Yacht Club, and
the Dolphin sailing club. All three
organizations make frequent boat
trips to Venice and many of our
members use this dock. The
anchorage in Venice is already very
limited or crowded. Our boaters
love Venice and spend a significant
amount of money in the Crow's
Nest and other local establish-
ments while visiting by boat. If this
dock is closed we will probably
move on down the ICW to other
anchorages. Closing this city dock
would be shortsighted." Mark
Bridges
Tax base blunder?
"What are you thinking? Surely
the few free dock spaces the city
offers to locals and visitors alike
cannot be construed as competi-
tion to private enterprise ....
Closing the docks could affect the
city tax base through the loss of a
portion of the considerable tourist
revenues cruisers like us spend
more broadly across Venice busi-
nesses.
"Close the park docks and risk
cruising clubs like our 100-mem-
ber one (and we will) regretfully
remove your lovely city as a
planned destination on our cruis-
ing calendar because it will no
longer meet the needs of all our
members." Ron Bullock, Dol-
phin Cruising Club of Tampa Bay
Expense is not the issue
"My husband and I have often
visited Venice, frequently tying at
the free dock. The expense is not
the issue but the convenience and
protection it offers. We enjoy walk-
ing to the restaurants in the area.
The slips near the inlet are more
exposed and we would be more
inclined to anchor rather than use
the marina. Please keep the docks
open. Thank you for your lovely
community." Sandra and Bill
Ripberger
Bye-bye
"If you close the dock, you can
forget Venice as a destination for a
lot of sailors." Glminiati
A gem
"It is a rarity today to have such
a gem available to the marine
cruising community. I urge you to
consider the money that the park's


visitors inject into the Venice com-
munity. On my most recent visit,
last February, my family used the
park as a rest stop on our trip from
St. Pete to the Boca Grande/Fort
Myers area. We also stayed on on
our return trip. Each time we
walked into town for dinner and
visited the convenience store a few
blocks away for supplies. Had it
not been for those assets, we likely
would have stayed in Sarasota or
Boca Grande." Brian Fast, New
Port Richey
Bypass
"Unfortunately, I will too be
avoiding your town on my way
south to Miami and the Keys and
back, which I visit quite often." -
Edward Turner, Dunedin
Leader of the pack
"In spite of how cruiser-un-
friendly the rest of Florida seems
to be, Venice seems to lead the
pack." Rudy and Jill, Panama
City
Please reconsider
"I just learned that your town is
altering its free transient dockage.
It has caused quite a stir on some
boating forums online. More com-
ments that Florida is unfriendly to
boaters and appears unwise in its
approach to the boating commu-
nity. Perhaps in your analysis, the
costs associated to support boat-
ing activities outweighs any civic
benefits. Please reconsiderVenice's
attitude towards boaters. Thank
you." Jeff Wright, Treasure
Island
Reality check
"I think you are being some-
what shortsighted. I understand
that there are plans to open a
mooring field in Venice. In theory,
that is a great idea. Unfortunately,
what I have observed up and down
the West Coast of Florida as well as
the Atlantic Coast is that mooring
fields fill up with permanent boats,
and then there is no room for the
transient cruiser. It would be a
shame to see this happen in
Venice. Please be aware that tran-
sient cruisers want to spend
money in your community. Please
don't pass regulations that keep us
away." Bev MacMahon, Punta
Gorda

OUR VIEW


Good start but far to go on road safety


F lorida's highway death toll fell to
2,570 in 2009 compared to 2,986
in 2008. That's the lowest num-
ber killed since 1992, according to the
Florida Department of Highway
Safety and Motor Vehicles.
Yet it doesn't give Florida, the
nation's fourth most-populous state,
much to brag about. NewYork, which
has the nation's third-largest popula-
tion, reduced its highway death toll by
46 percent from 2,263 to 1,224 -
between 1989 and 2008.
For years our state has been a dan-
gerous place for both motorists and
pedestrians. And the total number of
Florida deaths is expected to be even
higher when the final Florida Traffic
Crash Statistics Report 2009 is re-
leased this spring, since some people
hospitalized in late 2009 will not sur-
vive.
Florida officials would like to take


the credit for reducing the death toll.
And they may be partially right.
"We are committed to providing
the safest possible driving environ-
ment by educating drivers, licensing
those who prove they are competent
and qualified, and by enforcing the
traffic laws," explains Julie L. Jones,
DHSMV executive director.
Law enforcement officials also de-
serve credit for enforcing the seat belt
law and cracking down on drunk dri-
vers.
"The FHP is working in partner-
ship with all law enforcement agen-
cies statewide, and we are aggressive-
ly patrolling to remove dangerous dri-
vers from Florida roadways who pose
unnecessary and unlawful risks to
others," said Florida Highway Patrol
Director Colonel John Czernis.
But it seems evident the recession,
job losses and the high price of gaso-


line also are significant factors in the
reduction. Further, more new cars
come equipped with side-impact
airbags and other safety features.
And deaths aren't the only issue.
Based on prior year's figures, the final
count will show some 200,000 people
were injured in 200,000 car crashes,
some 4,000 truck accidents and as
many as 9,000 involving motorcy-
clists. An estimated 8,000 pedestrians
were hurt or killed in 2009.
Officials say there are roughly 700
crashes each day in Florida. Some
suggest it has something to do with
the large number of elderly drivers
with a slow reaction time living in or
visiting our state. Yet studies show a
disproportionate percent of all crash-
es involve immature, inexperienced
drivers.
'A significant percentage of young
drivers are involved in traffic crashes,


and they are twice as likely as adult
drivers to be in a fatal crash," the Na-
tional Highway Traffic Safety Admin-
istration reports.
"Sixteen-year-old drivers are twice
as likely to be in an accident as an 85-
year-old. Younger drivers lack experi-
ence, have inadequate skills, drive a
great deal at night, have poor judg-
ment and engage in risk-taking
behavior," the NHTSA adds.
Use of alcohol before getting
behind the wheel is a major reason for
highway deaths and injuries. As
recently as 2007 drunk Florida drivers
killed 1,244 people. That's 39 percent
of the 3,221 highway deaths that year.
There are many ways to reduce
highway deaths, including the things
mentioned above as well as improv-
ing the streets and highways.
It is time for Florida to achieve the
results NewYork has.


Things aren't




going south


LANG CAPASSO
PUBLISHER


There have been a couple of
comments in our Let'em Have
It about how I am turning your
paper, the Venice Gondolier
Sun, into a Charlotte or Engle-
wood paper. That subject was
addressed to me too as I talked
to a group of Venice mer-
chants.
The good news is that you
do not want your paper chang-
ed. That is good news to me
because you consider it yours
and have ownership in it.
The paper is yours and you
certainly have a right of owner-
ship in it, but I would like to
clear up some misconceptions
about what I can do or not do
as the publisher. The reason I
say that is because we are deal-
ing with "free enterprise" and
all that that conveys.
When a special section is
put in our paper that is gener-
ated from another communi-
ty, it is because that is what the
advertiser is looking for. Mer-
chants from surrounding areas
are trying to draw shoppers
from Venice to their communi-
ty just as many Venice mer-
chants are trying to draw
shoppers to their stores inVen-
ice. If you look at our paper,
the Sarasota paper or any
other paper, you will see ads
from other communities
drawing people to their town.
The other day our very pop-
ular Let's Go! section had a
front-page feature called "Dis-
cover Wauchula and Hardee
County." Does that mean I am
pushing those two counties
over Sarasota County? The
answer would be "no." Let's
Go! section runs in Charlotte,
Punta Gorda, Englewood, Ar-
cadia, North Port and Venice,
as does our very popular "Wat-


erline." Any advertiser can
purchase ads in all those areas
with just one buy. Other
papers offer similar buys that
reach many communities also.
Think about it: TV comes into
your home telling you about
businesses hundreds of miles
away.
Why wouldn't a tourist or a
resident come from Engle-
wood or North Port to sample
some of the fine restaurants
we have here in town? Why
wouldn't a Venice resident
travel to Port Charlotte or Eng-
lewood to go to a marina that
might have a huge promotion
on boats? Why wouldn't an
Arcadia resident or tourist
come to Venice to walk West
Venice Avenue?
People, especially tourists,
come to an area not just for the
area but for what is around it
also. Let me ask you as a local:
Have you been to St. Armands
Circle, Van Wezel, St. Augus-
tine, Disney World, Busch
Gardens, Bok Tower, the Ar-
cadia Rodeo? Have you trav-
eled to Englewood to eat at the
beach? Chances are you have.
Many chambers of com-
merce put material promoting
their area at tourist centers on
the interstates, hoping to
entice incoming tourists to
their area and keep them away
from Disneyland and Busch
Gardens. You probably won't
stop them from going there,
but they might add that area to
their itinerary.
So, folks, even though a
couple of people said I am
from the south, actually I am
from Venice and I have no
intention of turning our paper
into a Englewood or Port Char-
lotte paper. The truth is, we all
travel to see and visit other
areas to see what is going on. I
can't stop that, nor do I want
to.
As Venice businesses adver-
tise in surrounding communi-
ties, businesses in those same
communities advertise in Ven-
ice. It is up to you to choose
which ones you decide to
spend your dollars with.

weekly column for this page.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Problems start if tax dies
Editor:
I have spent close to 25
years teaching in Sarasota
County schools. I remember
my first paycheck. I cleared
less than I was making as a
waitress at Smitty's when I was
putting myself through school.
Now, 25 years later, I make less
money than my daughter who
has been at her job for five
years.
However, that is all right; I
love to teach, and I thank God
I was chosen to guide, nurture
and instruct the children who
are in my care. Money was
never a major factor in my
choice to be a teacher, but it
was certainly a consideration.
I did weigh the monetary ben-
efits but not as much on a per-
sonal level as in a community
sense the community with-
in the school system and the
community of Venice and sur-
rounding areas.
I was selfish and wanted the
best teachers, equipment and
technology for Sarasota Coun-
ty students. I was protective
over special programs like
alternative education, art, the-
ater and music (to name a
few). So, yes, money will al-
ways be a consideration and
one that the community (young
and old) must take responsi-
bility for.
You have the best leader-
ship that I have ever seen at
the helm and experts who
know how to spend cohesively
and wisely, so there should be
no problem there.
You are all shareholders.
You don't create a problem
where none exists when you
vote "yes" for the referendum.
The problems begin if you vote
"no."'

Leslie Bachtel
Venice
Schools don't chose
their students
Editor:
Wow, a whopping $49,000
with a master's degree and 10
years of experience. What do
you think is appropriate for
the most important position in


the world? Yes, more impor-
tant than a heart surgeon,
business executive, airline
pilot, dentist or a newspaper
editor.
After all, none of those peo-
ple would be in the position
they are in if it weren't for
teachers along the way.
Nothing happens until a
teacher is involved.
One of the areas you might
want to explore is what I call
"educational child abuse."
That occurs when a student
has a lack of support at home
to truly become a successful
student.
What would happen to your
own employees if they were
disinterested in their work,
missed deadlines and caused
disruption in the workplace?
Would they be successful? Of
course not; they would be
fired. Well, you can't fire stu-
dents. You have to take the
good with the bad and deal
with the situation.
When you're required to
educate everyone, it is more
difficult to arrive at a high
achievement level. If you look
at your business, would you be
less successful if you had to
hire everyone who applied? Of
course you would. So unless
we address a student's lack of
motivation and parental lack
of support we are too often,
blaming the wrong people.
Until more parents value
education and set rules
regarding homework, late
hours, excess student work
hours, drinking and drugs, we
will have achievement prob-
lems and they won't be all the
fault of the teachers.

Nokomis
Where has
the VTL been?
Editor:
If the Venice Taxpayers
League really cared about the
proceedings and recommen-
dations of the Financial Over-
sight Committee that gave a
report on how the Sarasota
County School Board was
spending referendum funds,


why didn't any of them show
up at the school board work-
shop when the committee
presented its report to the
board?
Or contact any board mem-
bers with their concerns? Or
attend any of the school board
workshops on the budget? If
this group really cared about
the waste of taxpayers funds, it
should have requested a
change in procedure before fil-
ing a costly lawsuit.
A group such as this should
get its facts straight before giv-
ing opinions to its members
about how funds are spent.
One would think it would have
a representative at all school
board budget workshops and
meetings and be in contact
with board members about
any questions it has before
becoming the taxpayers' voice
on these items.
The courts should be a last
resort as a way to communi-
cate with elected officials, not
the first contact with them.

VHS experience and the town
it represents, the fact is, our
local school was below average
in relation to the rest of the
nation!
Today, Florida's education
expenditures per pupil are
42nd in the nation, and the 1
mill property tax provides
Sarasota County students with
funds that put Sarasota
County school spending about
average for the country. To say
spending has no relation to
quality may be true in some
instances, but generally more
money is needed to attract and
keep better teachers. Just as in
my day, most of our top stu-
dents will choose higher-pay-
ing careers over teaching and
many excellent teachers will

Editor:
I am a new year-round resi-
dent of Venice. I do not have
children in Sarasota County
schools but if I did, my first
question to the principal of
Venice High School would be,
"How dare you?" How can a
school principal or other
administrator permit a repre-
sentative of one side of a polit-
ical issue to address (dare I say
indoctrinate?) high school
kids? And where were the par-
ents? Were they advised or
consulted or simply presumed
to be on the side of continuing
the tax?
Had this been an open
debate with both sides of the
issue well represented and the
students allowed to study the
issue beforehand, they could

the presenters and turned this
into a wonderful teaching and
learning experience. Why was
this golden opportunity for an
exercise in democracy squan-
dered in favor of an undemoc-
ratic one-sided sales job?
I'm retired and on a fixed
income, and like most of us in
that circumstance I won't
mind paying the 1 mill in taxes
if I'm getting my money's
worth. I'm in favor of good -
no, great schools.
A well-educated citizenry is
a priceless benefit to our com-
munity. However and this is
now a big "however" for me -
if this is any example of how
our local schools are run, this
is not education, it's indoctri-
nation and I do mind very
much paying for that.

Ask the teachers
what they need
Editor:
Since many school districts
obtain significantly better
results than does the Sarasota
County School District, I
would suggest that the school
board be replaced with people
willing to study other methods
in other school districts (with
similar mixed populations)
that achieve better scores and
drop-out statistics, often with
much less money.
It wouldn't do any harm to
set up school focus meetings at
which teachers would feel free
to offer constructive sugges-
tions.
It always amazes me how
administrators know how and
what teachers should do. And
educators with Ph.D.s also
weigh in.
The money always goes to
people who manage other
people, and seldom in school
districts is there input from
those who are managed.
I also believe each and every
person paid to work in the
administration of a school
should teach at least one class
a week and learn firsthand
what teachers really do and
have to struggle with.
I spent many years in text-
book publishing and have the
greatest respect for teachers.
They often reach into their
own pockets to buy materials
needed in their classrooms,
while schools spend money on
educational fads.
Then they are harassed by
parents who don't believe that
their little darlings are disrup-
tive and unruly.
I don't support the 1 mill tax
extension. The district needs
brains and experience to tack-
le its problems, not more and
more cash to be wasted. It is
undoubtedly wasting teacher
resources while searching for
more and more technological
solutions to improve the dis-


trict's
rate.

MR. SHEEPSHEAD
COLUMNIST


I smell



sheepies

I could be wrong, but
Sunday while unsuccessful-
ly fishing for sheepies at our
jetty, I think I smelled them
arriving. I had several bites
that didn't take the bobber
under but lost the sand flea
each time. I don't think it
was the usual suspects such
as blue crabs, small snapper
or pinfish. The air had that
familiar smell of sheepies.
Let's hope I am correct
and the run will last into
April. Another reason I think
my nibbles were sheepies is
the fact that the above men-
tioned suspects do not nor-
mally eat fiddlers as well as
fleas. I was only using fid-
dlers Sunday.
The sad part is I was the
only fisherman actually
fishing for sheepies. The
other four or five fishermen
thought they were still up in
the Great Lakes fishing for
walleyes. I don't think any of
them even knew what a
sheepie looked like.
As recent as two seasons
ago, I was catching 20 to 30
sheepies in one afternoon at
the same jetty. Still the eter-
nal optimist and I still insist
that I smelled sheepies.
Assuming I am right,
remember to have fiddlers
and sand fleas. One day, the
fiddlers are best and the next
day the fleas work. Also,
remember to fish in the rocks
as that is where the sheepies
eat and spawn. Good fishing
to you, and don't forget to
smell the sheepies.
Well, fellow Sheepshead-
ites, the time has come to say
goodbye until next week.

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

DeVries commits to N.C. State


FROM MICHELLE GUY


Venice High junior Naomi
DeVries, a level 10 gymnast,
verbally committed to Division
I North Carolina State on a full
athletic scholarship.
"I am really happy that the
years of hard work and 20-plus
hours per week training have
paid off," DeVries said. "I visit-
ed nine college campuses and
gymnastics programs since this
summer and am thrilled to
become part of the Wolfpack
program".
DeVries will continue to
compete the 2010 and 2011
seasons with her club team, the
Tampa Bay Turners.
DeVries started her gymnas-
tics career in toddler tumbling
classes at her local preschool.
After the family relocated to


Venice, DeVries signed up for
gymnastics at the South
County FamilyYMCA in Venice.
DeVries became a member
of the YMCA's Goldstar Gym-
nastics Team and under the
direction of Coach Peggy Sue
Lehman, DeVries competed
her way through Levels 5, 6,
Modified Optional and 8.
In 2005, DeVries, competing
as a Level 8 gymnast, qualified
for the balance beam finals
under Level 10 rules.
After attending a three-day
summer training program,
DeVries signed up with Tampa

This meant countless hours
of driving back and forth by her
parents, Marcia and Jon, and

also required DeVries to complete her
homework in the car.
In 2006 and 2007, she qualified for
Level 9 Eastern Nationals and placed
second on the vault in 2007. In 2008
and 2009, she qualified for Level 10
Nationals, which is the highest level
attained in the country before elite.
Over the last three competitive sea-
sons, DeVries has also earned TBT's
most outstanding gymnast award.
"I knew from the minute I first
worked with Naomi that she had a spe-
cial talent; an extremely high level of
work ethic," said YMCA gymnastics
director Michelle Guy. "Naomi would
usually take three turns to everyone
else's one just because she was moving
faster. That work ethic attributed to her
quick skill acquisition. It was fun to
coach and be a part of."
Under the expert coaching of Brad


Harris at TBT, DeVries increased her
gymnastic abilities and goals.
"The coaches and athletes at TBT
are so proud of Naomi for her unpar-
alleled work ethic and dedication and
are thrilled for her that it is paying
off," said Harris. 'A very small per-
centage of kids that begin the sport of
gymnastics earn scholarships making
this a truly great honor for not only
Naomi but her coaches and family.
We are confident that the things that
make Naomi such a fantastic school
student-athlete will carry over to her
days at N.C. State and serve her well
into adulthood."
The Wolfpack were the 2009
Eastern Atlantic Gymnastics League
champions.
Academically, DeVries is ranked 10th
in her class and wants to study biomed-
ical engineering.

Wellfield complex is likely disc I
BY ROGER BUTTON IST -.. ..
BUSINESS COLUMNIST / r '


Disc golf appears likely to
become the latest family sport
to be introduced in Venice for
the enjoyment of city and
county residents.
Following a story published
in the Gondolier Sun, disc golf
enthusiasts responded posi-
tively to a county inquiry
about whether a course should
be installed at Wellfield Park.
Jack Colligan, manager of
Sarasota County Parks &
Recreation, recently held an
on-site meeting with Gregg
Hosfeld, partner-owner of
World Championship Disc
Golf Design of Orlando. They
agreed the Wellfield Sports
Complex, along Pinebrook
Road, would be an ideal loca-
tion.
Taking into account the
interest in the project and the
success of the two similar
nine-hole courses in Sarasota
used by 540 Sky Pilots Disc
Golf members, a permanent
course would be more cost
efficient than renting a tempo-
rary course.
Hosfeld's company would
design, provide and install the

al and course developer Gregg Hosfeld check out the Venice Wellfield Sports Complex for its suitability for a
disc golf course.


equipment in one day, com-
plete with signs displaying the
rules and a map of the course.
"Progress depends upon the
quote, then going out to bid,"
said Colligan. "If he gets the


bid, he will work with our guys
on clearing the area, then lay
out the course and install the
equipment."
Total costs are estimated to
be $6,000-$7,000.


Disc golf in Venice was dis-
cussed three years ago follow-
ing an overture by Sarasota Sky
Pilots club members. It lay
dormant until Venice resident
Anne Graf contacted Colligan


golf site
a few weeks ago, but he want-
ed an indication of positive
interest in the community
before the county would invest
in building a course.
He and Hosfeld agreed the
ideal location is between cro-
quet fields and the basketball
courts. To allowing for the
future widening of Pinebrook
Road, the course would be set
back with existing oak and
palm trees providing obstacles.
The county focuses on
sports at Wellfield, with base-
ball, softball, football, soccer
and tennis facilities.
Nine-hole disc golf courses
allow threesomes or four-
somes on every hole, accom-
modating 36 people of all ages.
Hosfeld is a world champi-
on disc golfer, and his compa-
ny has installed courses all
around the state, the most
recent in the city of Andorra.
"In sports generally you
have to play with people of
similar skill levels, but in disc
golf it just does not matter," he
said. "I am a world champion
and I can play with a little kid
who has never picked up a disc
before."

Sarasota man faces multiple child porn charges


BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER


Authorities on Friday arrested a sec-
ond area man for allegedly having
numerous images on his home com-
puter of children as young as toddlers
involved in graphic sexual acts.
The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office
would not say if the Friday arrest of 69-
year-old Thomas E Richardson of
Sarasota is connected with the Feb. 26
arrest of Michael Joseph Moats, 26, of
North Port. However, the men had sim-
ilar child pornographic titles down-
loaded from the Internet on their com-
puters. At least two of the same Web
sites were used by both men, with titles


such as "XXX lolita," "kiddy," "incest"
and "preteen gay sex," according to a
sheriff's report.
Richardson, 3300 block of Yorktown
St., was arrested by deputies around 11
a.m. Friday. Deputies allegedly found
15 video clips involving children as
young as 5 years old engaging in sexual
activity. Some of the videos listed in the
report are about 16 minutes long.
Pictures reportedly show children
ranging in age from toddlers to 15-year-
olds engaged in sexual activity with
others, and incest, the report shows.
Robinson faces 15 counts of posses-
sion of a photograph of sexual perfor-
mance by a child.
According to the sheriff's office,


deputies were serving a warrant to
assist the state attorney's office in a fol-
low-up investigation.
Possession of more than 10 images
of child pornography, qualifies as a sec-
ond-degree felony for each charge,
according to the SCSO. If convicted,
Richardson could face up to 15 years in
prison on each count of child porn.
Wendy Rose, SCSO spokeswoman,
said authorities are unsure if any of the
victims are local.
The images showed children "clearly
less than 18 years of age due to the size
of their arms, legs, torsos and prepu-
bescent state," the report shows.
Each image of child pornography
carries a bond amount of $7,500,


according to officials. Richardson was
released from Sarasota County Jail
Saturday after posting $37,500 bond.
Moats allegedly had 20 images on
his home computer of children as
young as infants involved in graphic
sexual acts, including bondage. Other
pictures reportedly show infants to pre-
teenagers being tied up and raped.
Moats also was charged with resist-
ing arrest after deputies entered his
home Feb. 26 on a search warrant and
he was hiding in the attic, a report
shows.
Moats remained in jail Monday on
$150,750 bond.

Gran Paradiso recreation center case to move forward


BY ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

A judge will decide
whether funds are
released to construct
the Recreation and Com-
munity Center at Gran
Paradiso.
Circuit Judge Charles
Roberts on Monday
rejected a motion by the
West Villages Improve-
ment District to dismiss a
developer's earlier request
that Roberts compel the
district's board to release
the more than $4.6 mil-
lion necessary to com-
plete the center.
Located on the west
end of North Port, the
center is at the entrance
of the struggling Gran
Paradiso development,
across U.S. 41 from
Islandwalk.
Roberts directed attor-
neys for the district to file
a response to the devel-
oper's motion within 20
days.
The board, which
approves spending for
infrastructure improve-
ments in the nearly
8,200-acre district, chose
in 2009 not to fund com-
pletion of the communi-
ty center after Gran
Paradiso developer Sam
Rodgers beleaguered
by the real estate down-
turn chose last year
not to pay approximately
$3 million in non-ad val-
orem assessments he
owes the district.
The district's board of
supervisors is elected by


property owners in the
district. Representing
board members, attor-
ney Alan S. Zimmet, of
the Palm Harbor-based
Zimmet, Unice & Salz-
man law firm, had argued
at the Sarasota County
Courthouse that deci-
sions regarding comple-
tion of the community
center are the purview of
the board the defen-
dant in this case.
"We believe that the
complaint for man-
damus, under the case
law, really cannot stand
because it is compelling
the exercise of a discre-
tionary judgment call
by the district," Zimmet
said. He suggested that
Rodgers pursue a breach
of contract action instead.
But Rodgers' attorney,
Charles Bartlett of the
Sarasota-based Icard Mer-
rill law firm, countered
that the board set the
rules, then broke them.
The board, he said, should
complete the community
center amenities, as it said
it would.
According to the com-
plaint, unfinished com-
munity center improve-
ments include an aquatic
center, interior finishes
and furnishings, land-
scaping, tennis courts
and lighting, at a total
cost of $4,618,000.
Bartlett told the judge
that the board's original
promise to complete the
facility created its obliga-
tion to do so. The board
committed to the work

Downtown parking
Police Chief Judy
Williams defended the
police department's
parking enforcement
guidelines in a presen-
tation before council
last month. She was
responding to asser-
tions made previously
by Greg Silvia of Althea's
Restaurant. Silvia said
local businesses are
allowing too many of
their employees to take
up customer spaces,
and police aren't citing
violators.
Williams said that in
one month the Venice
Police Department con-
ducted 60 parking
details, issuing 11 cita-
tions and 77 warnings,
including 10 repeat vio-
lations (five vehicles
were cited two times and
five were cited three
times). Police logged no
fewer than 53 open
spaces in the Miami
Avenue parking lot dur-
ing their visits, Williams
said.
She recommended
the public parking lot on
Miami Avenue lot have
the same posted
enforcement times as
that of the Centennial
lot, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
City Manager Isaac
Turner said he would
look into the issue fur-
ther. More ticketing by
the police isn't the
answer, Turner said. It's


and then backed out, he just wants the district to the facility. escott@
said, and the developer complete construction of sun-herald.com


better for business and
the city's reputation to
come up with other
alternatives, he said.
Road work
Waterline replace-
ment at the Harbor
Drive, West Venice
Avenue intersection will
begin March 15. During
March 15 and 16 (weath-
er permitting) the work
will be done during day-
time hours on the
Harbor Drive section,
with one lane of Harbor
Drive closed as needed.
Work takes place on
the Venice Avenue por-
tion on the night of
March 17 (weather per-
mitting). The entire east
area of the intersection
will be closed to traffic
around or after 7 p.m.
until the project is com-
pleted, around mid-
night, if all goes as
planned. While the inter-
section is closed, east-
bound traffic on Venice
Avenue and northbound
traffic on Harbor Drive
will be detoured to
Miami Avenue.
Westbound traffic on
Venice Avenue and
southbound traffic on
Harbor Drive will be
detoured to Barcelona
Avenue.
The waterline
replacement project pre-
cedes the intersection
improvements, which
are funded by federal
stimulus funds that
require the project to be
done immediately or
lose funding.

liked, they knocked on the door and introduced themselves. Within a few months, 1 hI -\ I Iuni I
enough homeowners willing to open their homes for the first tour. Susek and her Iii *it- .-n I .-

War College head visits Venice


BY DON BLAIR
SPECIAL TO THE
GONDOLIER SUN

Rear Adm. James P.
Wisecup, who presides
over the Naval War Col-
lege in Newport, R.I., the
largest war college in
continuous operation in
the world, will be in
Venice at American Le-
gion Post 159 Thursday,
March 11, at 2 p.m.
His appearance is
open to the public (reser-
vations required).
The admiral is appear-
ing at the invitation of the
Tin Can Sailors Squadron
of Venice. For those not
familiar with the term, a
"tin can" is naval jargon
for those wonderful, hard-
working destroyers, de-
stroyer escorts, frigates,
tenders and similar types
of U.S. Navy vessels. There
are hundreds of proud Tin
Can veterans residing
here in Sarasota, Manatee
and Charlotte counties.
Wisecup's talk will
cover a number of very
vital and important is-
sues, including our rela-
tionship with China, ter-


RESERVATIONS
To reserve a seat at
Rear Adm. James P.
Wisecup's talk at

159, call the Tin Can
Sailors reservation line

rorism, piracy and home-
land security. His audi-
ence will quickly learn that
the Naval War College is as
much about peace and
diplomacy as it is about
war and averting war.
Nor is the Naval War
College a closed ship as
far as its attendees are
concerned. It includes
high-ranking officers
from not just the Navy
but all our armed forces,
Pentagon officials and
the FBI as well. It wel-
comes 600 officers to its
classrooms every year
and they come from
countries around the
globe.
Post 159 has extended
invitations to a dozen
military veterans organi-
zations such as the


Legion, DAV VFW and all
branches of military ser-
vice.
You can be among
them as Wisecup defines
plans and policies that
have created important
alliances and friendships
among governments and
their military branches
worldwide.
Wisecup is a Tin Can
sailor himself, having
commanded Destroyer
Squadron 21 during Op-
eration Enduring Free-
dom with the John C.
Stennis (one of our newer
carriers, named after the
late Mississippi senator)
Strike Group.

Art tickles the heart and spirit


FRAN VALENCIC
SOCIAL COLUMNIST

The Venice Art Center
knows how to showcase artists
to dazzle everyone's imagina-
tion. The recent exhibit featur-
ing Julia Hyman, Kurt Larisch,
Pat Kelly, Walter Yovaish, Fred
Nagel, Joan Orphanos and
Carolyn Johnston provided
charm and whimsy.
Hyman's simple, smooth
sculptures give a sense of awe
that stone can seem soft and
serene. Bugs and more bugs
by potter Yovaish provided
humor, and the colorful fish
and gentle women by Kelly
made everyone smile. Each
piece by each artist gave the
observer a chance to see
some joy.
Until March 18, the Venice
Art Center showcases Venice
with plein air art by invited


artists. This annual exhibit is
a favorite.
Orchids steal the show
Thousands of orchid lovers
celebrated beauty and grace.
The Venice Area Orchid Soci-
ety deserves a bravo for the
spectacular weekend show
and sale.
The group meets on the
first Monday of the month
at 7 p.m., and a new growers
workshop is held on the
second Wednesday at 7:30
p.m. at the Venice Commu-
nity Center. Call 488-4845.
Goodies for
grandparents
Three cheers to Venice
Elementary School for pro-
viding a chance for grand-
parents to enjoy early morn-
ing time with their grandchil-
dren. Doughnuts, chocolate
milk and coffee seem like a
perfect way to start the day.
A special event
Members of the Venice
Symphony and a community
chorus under the direction of
Maestro Kenneth Bower-
meister present a free con-
cert on March 13. The special
event also features Johanna
Fincher, Doug Renfroe and
David Downey Jr.


The Saturday spectacular
takes place on March 13 at
Lakeside Lutheran Church at
7 p.m. Performing "The Last
Seven Words of Christ," the
concert promises a perfect
Lenten evening to fill the
spirit.
All donations benefit the
Venice Symphony music
camp, which offers new
opportunities for area stu-
dents each year. The 2010
camp will enlarge its chil-
dren's chorus, under the
direction of Fincher, and its
jazz band.
E-mail drsmith90@com
cast.net for more informa-
tion.
One of our best
The special person of this
week is Julia Hyman. This
nice lady easily tops the
"Treasures in Venice" list.
Her sculptures reflect her
simplicity and beauty. Her
presence whispers charm
and grace. Her behind-the-
scenes work and generosity
touch citizens in this town
and beyond. To everyone
who knows her, she is a gift.
Julia Hyman is one of the
artists who make Venice a
great place to live.

Vote for yourself
Once again art is on the brink in Sarasota
County. March 16, voters will go to the polls
to decide its fate. As one who spends her life
writing about the arts and what the arts have meant to
the development of Sarasota, it seems strange that it
would ever come to a vote.
Without the arts, this would be just another county
in Florida instead of the center of the state's Cultural
Coast. Even someone as wealthy as John Ringling
needed his art museum to lure his wealthy friends
away from Florida's east coast. Traveling frequently in
Europe to sign talent for his circus, he recognized
more than most that the great cities were also cultural
hubs. When he built the John and Mable Ringling
Museum of Art, he set in motion the future of the
Cultural Coast.
Even those who never attend a play, the opera or
an art show reap the benefits in better schools, more
job opportunities and in the increased value of homes.
To vote against keeping art in the schools is to vote
against one's own new worth, whether a home owner
or not. The arts employ more people in the area than
any other field, including medicine and, the arts draw
more visitors than the beaches.
Vote for yourself.

Peace River Seafood Festival


BY CHARLOTTE CJAZA
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Food, vendors, arts and crafts and
games for children are the recipe for
a good time at the annual Peace
River Seafood Festival, scheduled
Saturday and Sunday at Laishley Park in
Punta Gorda
"The festival will be community and
family fun," said Teresa Evans, event
coordinator for Clear Channel Radio.
In the children's area, there will be
many games and activities that will


entertain while teaching.
Mote Marine will have its touch tank so
everyone can see and pet some of the
wonderful and gentle creatures of the sea.
The Mosaic Express will be at the
festival to provide a fun and historical
journey to help teach kids the importance
of farming and different minerals. There
will also be pony rides and a rock wall.
There will be live entertainment all day,
both days.
The bands will include Micheal's
Hibiscus Band, Noon Beaches, Unforget-


table, Tucker Hill, Signal 20, Debbie
Jamison, Harbor City Blues, and Razz
Taylor. But the entertainment will not be
limited to music.
The Sarasota Ski A Rees will be
performing right in Charlotte Harbor.harbor.
The event, every year, provides fun and
entertainment for the whole family and this
year will be no different.
Admission is $1 and parking is free.
Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn
chairs and sit and relax while enjoying all the
events, food and vendors.


Bad golf, good movie


BY NEIL HUGHES
SUN CONTRIBUTOR
For as much as he plays the sport,
G.R. Kearney should be a better
golfer.
In addition to years of practice, he also
has good genes on his side: Kearney's
grandfather, Englewood resident Dick
Schowengerdt, has, over the years, sunk
eight holes in one at Boca Royale Golf
and Country Club on State Road 776. And
the 93-year-old still plays regularly.
This is not to say that Kearney is an
awful golfer his handicap is 13.
But as his film "Handicapped" demon-
strates, Kearney does have a special
appreciation for particularly bad golf.
"The game of golf is inherently funny," he
said, "especially when played badly."
The director-producer believes his movie
will resonate with all average Joe golfers
who get the chance to see it. He's bringing
the film, "Handicapped: A Documentary
About Bad Golf," to the Cultural Center of
Charlotte County for a showing on March


11. Doors open at 6 p.m., the movie starts
at 6:30 p.m., and will be followed by a
question-and-answer session with Kear-
ney himself.
The documentary follows Chicago-
based multimillionaire portable toilet
executive and downright terrible golfer
Albert J. Doermaet, who created the
"Average Man Invitational" in 2004 to
fulfill his lifelong dream of competing in a
high-stakes golf tournament. The twist:
Every participant in the tournament must
have an equal or worse handicap than
him.
Ironically, Kearney's handicap would
not have qualified him for the tourna-
ment. Participants who qualified and
competed for the $250,000 cash prize
had a handicap of 17 or higher.
Those who tried out for the tourna-
ment didn't know they would be ranked
based on how poorly they performed. A
total of 10 contestants were selected,
and they competed in nine holes of golf
in a "shootout" fashion, where all the


contestants teed off from the same hole,
and the golfer with the worst score on
that hole was given the boot.
"It's kind of like people getting voted
off the island," Kearney said, comparing
the competition to the TV game show
"Survivor."
Among the contestants was John
Barmon, who played Spaulding Smails
in the classic golf comedy "Caddyshack."
Golf enthusiasts will also recognize the
director of the "Average Man Invitation-
al," Peter de Young, a 30-year veteran of
directing and managing high-profile golf
events.
As director and producer of the film,
which cost $220,000 to make, Kearney
has been touring with "Handicapped" to
promote it to golfers across the country. So
far, so good it's earned honors from
three film festivals, and Kearney hopes to
have a distribution deal for the film soon.
He's even in talks with the Golf Channel
to have his movie shown on the cable
network that caters to those who love the


The
festival
will run
from
10 a.m. to 5 p.m on
Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Sunday.

sport as much as he does.
When it comes to golf, the appeal is
obvious: It's a sport that virtually everyone
has played, but almost no one is actually
good at.
"If you think of the golf that we're used to
seeing on screens, we're seeing like the
top 1 percent of the top 1 percent of
golfers in the world," Kearney said. "They're
the only people that you ever see on TV
for the most part. Everyone else who plays
golf hits the ball sideways from time to
time."
But in addition to promoting his movie,
Kearney and his wife also have a new 11-
week-old baby in their home, so it's
unlikely he'll be improving his game and
lowering his 13 handicap anytime soon.
"For as much time as I spend thinking
about the game," he said, "I should be
better."
Boca Royale of Englewood and
Bobcat Trail Golf Club in North Port have
both contributed free foursomes in the
after-screening drawings.
The Cultural Center of Charlotte
County is located at 2280 Aaron St.,
Port Charlotte.

Clydesdales, the symbol of
quality and tradition for
Anheuser-Busch since
1933, are schedule 'a1


to make several W
appearances in the
area March 11-14,
including one at ,
the Charlotte
Sports Park
before a Tampa
Bay Rays spring ,
training game and
three others in Arcadia
in conjunction with the
Arcadia Rodeo.
The eight-horse team will be har-
nessed and hitched to the famous red
beer wagon at the Charlotte Sports
Park from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. March 11.
On March 12- 14 the "Gentle
Giants," as they are often referred to,
will participate in the Arcadia Rodeo.
The Rodeo begins at 1 p.m. daily.
The Clydesdales' appearance in
Charlotte and Desoto Counties is one
of 300 made annually by the five
traveling hitches. Canadians of
Scottish descent brought the first
Clydesdales to America in the mid-
1800's. Today, the giant draft horses


are used primarily for breeding and
show.
Horses chosen for the Budweiser
Clydesdale Hitch must be at least
three years of age, stand approximately
18 hands or six feet at the
shoulder, weigh an average of
2000 pounds, must be bay in
color, have four white stock-
i ings, and a blaze of white on
the face and black mane and
tail. A gentle temperament is
very important as hitch horses
meet millions of people each
year.
A single Clydesdale hitch horse
will consume as much as 20-25 quarts
of feed, 40-50 pounds of hay and 30
gallons of water per day.
Each hitch travels with a Dalmatian.
In the early days of brewing, Dalmatians
were bred and trained to protect the
horses and guard the wagon when the
driver went inside to make deliveries.
Budweiser Clydesdale traveling
hitches are based in St. Louis and
Boonville, Missouri; and Merrimack,
New Hampshire. The Budweiser
Clydesdales may be viewed at the
following Anheuser-Busch breweries:
St. Louis, Missouri; Merrimack, New
Hampshire; and Ft. Collins, Colorado
and seasonally at Grant's Farm in St.
Louis, MO.

'Rent,'


see whts playing in area o







the rock opera, opens


at Venice Theatre Thursday


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
V enice Theatre brings the classic
rock opera, "RENT" to its Yvonne
T Pinkerton Theatre March 11 for
a month-long run ending April 11.
Based on Puccini's opera "La
Boheme," the Broadway rock
opera/musical by Jonathan Larson
takes a look at the Bohemiam life of
New York's Lower East Side in the
1990s. Homeless people, AIDS and
HIV are in the news and in "RENT."
The opera influence is strong. There


is more music than dialogue.
Music, lyrics and book were all
written by Jonathan Larson, who likely
based the story on his own life in
Greenwich Village in the 1980s. He
won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and
two two Drama Desk Awards after his
untimely death in 1996. The show,
which played the Van Wezel, with
Henry Winckler in a major role three
years ago, also earned three Tony
Awards.
Venice Theatre's production is being
directed and choreographed by Brad


Wages. Jason Brenner is the music
director. Andrea Letso is the stage
manager. Costumes are by Nick
Hartman and sound design is by
Gabriela Gorka, Dorian Boyd and
Derick Kitson. Boyd also appears in
"Rent."
That it is being staged on the smaller
Pinkerton Theatre, home of Stage II
productions, has garnered interest. To
those questions Venice Theatre's
Executive Artistic Director Murray
Chase replied that the show actually
"premiered at the tiny New York Theatre


Workshop in the East Village in 1994
and didn't move to Broadway until
1996."
He added that the language and adult
content also make the smaller venue a
more appropriate choice.
"RENT" runs through April 11. Perfor-
mances are Tuesday-Saturday at 8 p.m.
and Sunday at 2 p.m. Venice Theatre is
at 140 W. Tampa Ave., on the island in
downtown Venice. Tickets are $24 per
person for adults and $12 for students.
For tickets, visit www.venicestage.com
or call the box office at 941-488-1115.

CHS Performing Arts Department
presents 'Joseph and the
Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat'


PROVIDED BY THE CHARLOTTE HIGH
SCHOOL PERFORMING ARTS DEPARTMENT
The Charlotte High School Perform-
ing Arts Department proudly
presents "Joseph and the Amazing
Technicolor Dreamcoat" March 13- 21 at
the Charlotte Performing Arts Center in
Punta Gorda.
The long-running show, with incarna-
tions in London's West End, Broadway,
national and international tours, and a film
adaptation starring Donny Osmond, is set
to music by Tim Rice and lyrics by
Andrew Lloyd Webber. This vibrant
retelling of the Biblical saga of Joseph
and his coat of many colors.
Joseph is the favored son of Jacob,
who displays his favoritism by giving
Joseph an amazing multi-colored coat.
This, combined with Joseph's prophetic
dreams, inflames the jealousy of his
eleven brothers, who sell him into slavery.
Through a series of misadventures, he
eventually comes to the notice of the all-
mighty Pharaoh, who raises him up to be
his number two. When things start going
poorly back at home, the brothers find
themselves in Egypt begging Joseph,


who they do not recognize as their
brother, for food.
This timeless story is told through a
variety of musical styles, from country-
western to rock 'n' roll to calypso, with
such memorable songs as "One More
Angel in Heaven", "Close Every Door",
and "Go, Go, Go Joseph".
In addition to over 60 high school
singers, dancers, and musicians, the cast
includes a children's choir made up of
students from local elementary and
middle schools. There will also be special
guest appearances by selected members
of the audience. To be selected for the
show, audience members will place their
names in a drawing at each performance.
If selected, individuals will be costumed
and receive a quick "run-through" of their
integral part of the show.
Show times are 7:30 p.m. March March
13, 18, 19, and 20 and 2:30 p.m. March
14 and 21.
For more information or to purchase
tickets, call 941-505-SHOW (7469).
The Charlotte Performing Arts Center is
located at 701 Carmalita St.,
Punta Gorda.

Stump Pass Grille


BY SHARE DERRICKSON
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Stuart Neail, owner of Stump
Pass Grille in Englewood, said
Jennifer Monna, a bartender at
the grille, is one of those people most
instantly like. The bartender has
worked for the grille for around two
years and he said he has an apprecia-
tion for her dedication to her work and
her all-around goodness as a person.
After meeting her, his words ring
true. Her genuine smile, humility, and
find sense of humor are a perfect fit
for an industry where one must be
good with clients, love what they do,
and have energy to keep up with the
crowd.
Monna, originally from Stuart,
Florida, has all that. The married
mother of a three-year-old seems to
effortlessly multi-task in an industry
where that this is key.
"I moved to Englewood about three
years ago and likes the laid-back
lifestyle."


"I took this job because many
regulars at my old job thought I
would be do well working here that
it was more my style," she said of the
water-front tiki-style bar.
"I actually have a college degree in
medical administration," she said.
"This is more my fit I hate being
behind a desk and I love to socialize
and be able to move around. I am not
the answer the phone kind of girl,"
she laughed.
Monna has been in the restaurant
business since she was 18. "I just
started to work my up to managing
restaurants and bartending," she
said. "It is one of my favorite things to
do because you get to meet a lot of
different people and you get to kind
of things like get to chit-chat about
people's lives. This is the place I
really love to be."
Stump Pass Grille is located at 260
Maryland Ave., Englewood.

MOVIES


Watched a new movie lately?
Shafe ,yp r ,'E-A wift, (X.hf. r&&ler,


31W3- -.1 ih&& A '


A Section of the un
Alice in Wonderland (PG) A-
Tim Burton takes a stab at Lewis
Carroll's timeless tale of a young girl
(Mia Wasikowska) lost within a
fantasyland with this 3-D production
of Alice in Wonderland. The Lion
King's Linda Woolverton provides the
script, with Hollywood heavyweights
Richard Zanuck and Joe Roth
heading up the production team.
Burton veteran collaborator Johnny
Depp co-stars as The Mad Hatter in
the Walt Disney Productions picture.
Ninteen-year-old Alice returns to the
magical world from her childhood
adventure, where she reunites with
her old friends and learns of her true
destiny: to end the Red Queen's
reign of terror.


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.


Brooklyn's Finest (R) B
Richard Gere, Don Cheadle, and
Ethan Hawke star in this cop drama
from director Antoine Fuqua and
Millennium Films. The story surrounds
three Brooklyn cops from varying
sides of the force who unknowingly
converge together at a hot
crime spot.


Cop Out (R) C
Two longtime NYPD partners on
the trail of a stolen, rare, mint-
condition baseball card
find themselves up
against a
merciless, Arec


memorabilia-obsessed gangster.
Jimmy the veteran detective whose
missing collectible 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.


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 increas-
ingly dangerous deployment, stay in
touch through their letters, meeting in
person only rarely. However, their
correspondence 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
government collusion that brings the
unwanted 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
bargained for when he partners with
a wisecracking, fast-shooting, high-
ranking U.S. agent (John Travolta)
who's been sent to Paris to stop a
terrorist attack.


Green Zone (R)
United 93 director Paul
Greengrass explores the
aftermath of the Iraq
invasion in this feature
adaptation of author Rajiv Chan-
drasekaran's literary expose of the
same name. A one-
time Bagh-
dad


a Theaters


bureau chief of the Washington Post,
Chandrasekaran was present as
American forces attempted to set up
a provisional government on the
grounds surrounding former Iraqi
dictator Saddam Hussein's opulent
palace. The resulting governing body,
according to critics, existed in a
bubble so far removed from the grim
realities of the Iraq War that it failed
to properly assess the needs of the
people. In this fictional thriller set
during the U.S.-led occupation of
Baghdad, director Greengrass and
screenwriter Brian Helgeland use
Chandrasekaran's novel as the
foundation for the story of an officer
who joins forces with a senior CIA
officer to unearth evidence of
weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.


Our Family Wedding (PG-13)
Forest Whitaker and Carlos
Mencia headline this culture- -.
clash comedy centered on -'
the conflict between two 7
headstrong fathers whose
children are about to be
married. With just two
weeks to go before the big day, the
disagreeable dads struggle to put
aside their differences long enough
to plan the perfect wedding.


Remember Me (PG- 13)
His relationship with his
father strained in the wake of .'-
a family tragedy, rebellious
New Yorker Tyler (Robert
Pattinson) finds love with
the one girl who under-
stands him. Tyler wasn't
looking for love, but that's exactly
what he found when he met Ally
(Emilie de Ravin). Enchanted by
her beauty and inspired by her
spirit, Tyler finds that his strange
life suddenly makes sense when
he's around Ally. As their relation-
ship grows, Tyler learns to live his
life with passion, and value the little
things. When buried secrets threaten
to tear the young couple apart, Tyler


realizes that sometimes love is
worth fighting for.


She's Out of My League (R)
An airport security guard
gets involved with a girl who's _
very obviously of a higher -
caliber than himself, and .
schemes to make the
relationship last as his
friends and family watch
along in disbelief. Kirk (Jay Baruchel)
was languishing in a dead-end job
as an airport security agent when he
somehow managed to earn the
affections of the successful and
drop-dead gorgeous Molly (Alice
Eve). Even Kirk isn't exactly sure
what Molly sees in him, though he's
willing to do whatever it takes to
make the relationship work.

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 disappear-
ance 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 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 bloodthirsty beast,
but he contends with a horrifying
family legacy.

Mama's cooks Italian like mama used to make it


BY CHUCK BALLARO
SUN CORRESPONDENT
6 1 A here else can you get a pasta
dish with salad and soup for
V V $6.99?" That was the
question imposed by Paula Recca-
Carlock, owner of Mama's Italian Restau-
rant on 2091 S. McCall Road in Engle-
wood.
Judging by the fact Mama's was named
Best Pizza and Best Dinner Value under
$10 in 2009 and best Italian Food in 2008
by the Englewood Sun, she seems to
know the answer.
Italian cuisine is what Mama's is known
for, but they also offer beef, seafood and
other items the whole family can enjoy
without, as Recca-Carlock called it, "sticker
shock."
Recca-Carlock has lived by that
philosophy since opening Mama's in 1982
with her late husband, Joseph Recca. It
was the Pizza Pub when the place was
first built in 1973.
"The place had no windows or skylights
when we bought it," Recca-Carlock said.
Joseph died in 2005, but her new
husband, Keith Carlock, soon stepped in
to maintain Mama's reputation as the
general manager.
"This place is a lot of work. My husband
is a natural chef," Recca-Carlock said.


"He's an integral part of Mama's. I can't
imagine running it without him."
It's hard not to notice the aroma the
moment you reach the parking lot. Mama's
makes 20 gallons of its signature sauce
every day, a family recipe of her late
husband.
"It has a Sicilian flavor, not bland,"
Recca-Carlock said. "The tomato has a
strong and robust flavor."
Among the signature dishes they serve
are Joe's Special Pizza, with pepperoni,
ham, sausage, mushrooms, olives,
peppers, onions and anchovies, for
$15.99. You can also build your own pizza,
starting at $10.99.
Among the pasta dishes include the
Shrimp Marco Polo ($12.99), saut6ed with
tomatoes, snow peas, mushrooms,
onionions, garlic wine and butter. There is
also the Pasta Vincenzo ($9.99) with
hearty vegetables garlic and wine over
linguine.
Recca-Carlock said Mama's offers the
best veal and eggplant, all of which are
made fresh. The soups are also outstand-
ing, with pasta fagioli, turkey noodle with
dumpling noodles and chicken and rice.
They also have a 16-ounce N.Y. Strip for
$15.99, with premium beef.
"It's the little things that make the differ-
ence," Recca-Carlock said. "I'd serve you


the same quality food I'd make if it was at
my house."
Among the newer features is a lunch
menu, which Carlock suggested and has
been a huge hit, with dishes under $7.
"The difference is night and day," Recca-
Carlock said. "We have crab salad and
cold chicken salad."
Mama's has been updated frequently.
The last occurred last summer with new
colors and an overall brightening.


Mama's closes one month a year during
the summer. This year, the couple will
travel to Tuscany to learn their cooking
secrets.
Mama's is open Monday through
Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and
closed on Sunday.

941-475-5656 or visit them at

dress code is white in Gasparilla


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Those who need an excuse to
wear white before Memorial
Day should consider croquet.
Croquet seems to be the last sport
in which white is the preferred color
for the players' clothing.
To see some of the best players in
their tournament whites, head over
to the Gasparilla Inn March 12-14.
Croquet players will be applying
mallets to balls on three lawns at the
club and one lawn at the nearby
Boca Bay Croquet Club. The occa-


sion is the eighth annual Boca
Grande Invitational Croquet Tourna-
ment. The singles only event will
have three flights, with a limit of 32
players on all flights on all four
lawns. Fred Jones is the tournament
director and the sponsoring clubs
are the Boca Bay Croquet Club and
the Gasparilla Mallet Club on Boca
Grande.
Practice begins Thursday after-
noon at the Gasparilla Mallet Club
clubhouse and will be followed by a
reception at which guests are asked
to wear resort casual, including

TECHNOLOGY
Addicted to
technology?
Take this quiz
BY DANIEL VASQUEZ
SUN SENTINEL
I must admit, I love the smell of new
electronics fresh out of the box.
Maybe that's an early sign of technol-
ogy addiction, but I know there are
worse patients out there who can't
stand the thought of not possessing the
latest gizmo or gadget and having them
on person at all times.
Are you spending excessive amounts
of money on smart phones, net books,
e-readers and anything else that is sold
at the neighborhood electronics store?
Do you pine for the iPad? Do you drag
your laptop to the bathroom?
If you answered yes to any of the
above, you may be a tech-obsessed
candidate ready to take the
Gizmodo.com quiz:
Here is a sampling of questions:
Do you eat most of your meals
while at the computer or in front of the
television?
Does the word "tweet" come up
regularly in your real-life conversations?
Do you check your feeds more
than once an hour?
Have you left an event or date
early so you could get online?
Do you sometimes bring your
laptop when you sit on the toilet?
Take the full 50-question Gizmodo
quiz (http://gizmodo.com/5453262/quiz-
are-you-addicted-to-technology).

Motown coming
to Charlotte County

BY JOHN HACKWORTH
MANAGING EDITOR
Glenn Leonard wants to make
one thing clear you will not
see The Temptations at the
March 18 Golden Memories show
But, you may not be able to tell the
difference.
Glenn Leonard's Temptations
Experience is one of four Motown-era
acts slated for the show, a fundraiser for
the Animal Welfare League. Other acts
include Wilson Williams and his
Platters, Pam Darden's Marvelettes
Revue and the Legacy of Clyde
McPhatter and the Drifters.
Leonard, 62, has been in the music
business since he was 14. For almost
10 of those years he was a member of
the original, the real Temptations,
founded by Motown icon Otis Williams.
With so many groups performing as
the Drifters, Temptations, Platters etc.
Leonard said he is very careful to not
try to fool anyone.
"I performed with Otis and the
Temptations for almost 10 years,
including the Temptations Reunion tour
when Melvin, Dennis and all the guys
came back. After that, though, I wasn't
sure where we could go from there.
"I wanted to branch out and do
something else. Plus, touring takes a
real toll on your family. I wanted to
spend some time with the kids."
Leonard said touring with idol Eddie
Kendricks and the Temptations was the
highlight of a career that began when he
formed a group called the Chancellors in
high school. He first recorded with them
and went on to perform with Instant
Groove and then True Reflections. It was
as a member of Instant Groove that he
became friends with Joe Blunt, who
went on to tour with the original Drifters.
As a member of True Reflections he met
Joe Coleman, who went on to become
member of the Platters.
"The Temptations (and others) were
made up of five guys who could have
all had solo careers," Leonard said.

WHAT: Golden Memodes concert and show
WHEN: 7 p.m., March 18
WHERE: Charlotte Harbor Events and Conference Center
HOW MUCH: $35 general admission, $100 VIP seating
with a meet-and-greet at 5:30 p.m.
WHO: Glenn Leonard's Temptations Expedence, Wilson
Williams and his Platters, Pam Darden's Marvelettes

TICKETS: At the Animal Welfare League, 3519 Drance
St., Port Charlotte, at the Events Center or online at
awlshelter.org or by calling 941-625-6720.

"Consequently, when those guys left
they were leaders. You can't detach
yourself from your history though."
That's why, Leonard said, there are
so many imitators touring today, and
that's not a bad thing.
Leonard said he has too much
respect for Motown and people like Otis
Williams to ever try to represent his
group as The Temptations.
"I have tremendous respect for Otis.
He is the only original Temptation still
alive."
But Leonard said he hand-picked his
group to sound and move just like the
Temptations.
They do not reflect badly on their
legacy.
"We play to the crowd and the crowd
always wants to hear those early hits like
"Get Ready,' and 'My Girl,"' Leonard said.
'We make sure we give a polished show.
"That was a wonderful time in the
history of music when we saw Blacks
coming to the forefront and the first
black-owned record company.
"We try to give a quality show."
The event kicks off at 7 p.m. with local
favorite Wilson Williams bringing his
version of the Platters to play alongside
the likes of Pam Darden and the
Marvelettes Revue and The Legacy of
Clyde McPhatter and the Drifters, led by
the son of the original lead singer for
the Drifters.
Tickets for a VIP pass to meet the
groups are $100 and general admission
is $35. There will be a dance area near
the stage, according to promoters.
'This is the biggest thing we've ever done
to raise money' said Sharon Thomas,
executive director of the AWL. 'We hope we
can make this an annual event."
