City to build



T-hangars


Washington, D.C.,
weighs in on B-II/C-II
BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

The city of Venice has less
than 30 days to decide
whether to build T-hangars al-
ready approved by the Florida
Department of Transportation
at Venice Municipal Airport, or
lose funding for the project.
Kristi Smith, FDOT modal
project manager, sent a letter
to City Manager Isaac Turner
on March 3 asking for a
response. The project lay dor-
mant for the past two years
while the city fought to keep
larger hangars from being built
at the Gulfcoast Air Center.
City officials confirmed on
Tuesday the city is moving for-
ward with plans to build small-
er T-hangars.
The delay was largely due to
approval of a master drainage
plan by the Southwest Florida
Water Management District.
City public information
officer Pam Johnson said she
anticipates Swiftmud's approval
any day now.
'As soon as that comes in,
we'll put the bid documents
out for construction. That was-
n't expedited in the past,"
Johnson said. "We are moving
forward."
Plans call for four T-hangars
that house light aircraft and
four slightly larger box hang-
ars.
Wait list
While there is no official
waiting list for T-hangars,
something that hasn't been
seen since at least 1995, offi-


cials say there will be no prob-
lem finding tenants.
The lack of a waiting list
"tells me a lot of people have
given up flying during the
recession," Johnson said. Local
pilots have said the same.
The airport currently has
two shade hangars and four
regular hangars available, with
two more coming open in
April, Johnson said, but "peo-
ple have been calling. We're
feeling like they will have them
all filled in three months."
Nick Carlucci, president of
the Venice Aviation Society
Inc., agreed the demand is
there.
He said the FDOT-funded
box hangars will rent out
quickly. Another hangar com-
ing available in April has
already been rented, he said.
The Caulkins hangar, which
the city took over recently, will
undergo substantial renova-
tion and those who currently
occupy that hangar will also be
looking, he said.
The city has an additional
hangar that is fast approach-
ing the end of its lifespan,
Carlucci said.
"Those people will also
probably be looking for a
hangar," he said. "By the time
these things are built, they will
be filled."
Rejects
Smith gave the city 30 days
to respond with a plan to build
the hangars or forgo additional
funding. FDOT funds projects
at 90 percent of the cost, with
the city providing the final 10
percent.
According to Johnson, the

Voters have spoken in favor of education,
extending for the third time the 1 mill school tax
referendum.
Unofficial results were in before 8:45 p.m.
Tuesday. With 100 percent of precincts report-
ing, 66 percent of Sarasota County voters
approved the referendum, with only 34 percent
voting against it.
"I am so relieved it's unbelievable," said
Sarasota County School Board member
Caroline Zucker. "The congratulations really go
to this community for caring enough to go out
and vote in support of education."


Zucker said the referendum's passage would
result in fewer cuts for the district.
"It means we'll only have to cut $20 million
instead of $58 million," she said, due to falling
property values and state cuts.
By 7:45 p.m., less than an hour after polls
closed, Sarasota County Supervisor of Elections
Kathy Dent said there really wasn't a chance that
the extension would be defeated.
"Right now the referendum is about 66 per-
cent yes and 34 percent no, and I don't think
there's any way, even with the seven precincts
that still have to come in, that they can overtake
that," Dent had said.

Receiver takes over Holiday House


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Holiday House, 455 North
U.S. 41 Bypass, was placed in
receivership last Thursday fol-
lowing a court hearing on
behalf of Iberia Bank. The
judge appointed John Balliett,
chair and CEO of Charter One
Hotels & Resorts Inc., Sarasota,
as the receiver.
A spokesperson confirmed
that Charter One specializes in
working with hotel owners and
operators. Balliett was given


access to the property Thurs-
day and is working with a
number of parties focused on
taking care of the hotel, guests
and employees.
Holiday House had been
owned and operated by the
LeBlanc family of Venice trad-
ing as Best Southwestern Mo-
tels Inc. The group operated
two Venice hotels in addition
to the Holiday House the
Veranda Inn, 625 South Tami-
ami Trail, and Days Inn, 1710
South Tamiami Trail.
Both motels closed unex-


pectedly last July when they
were foreclosed on by Pen-
insula Bank of Sarasota. A
management company, Para-
mount Hotel Group of New
York, was appointed to operate
and sell the properties. The
Veranda Inn reopened under
new management.
Administrative staff at the
Holiday House referred calls
about reservations and re-
funds prior to the court judg-
ment to Steven LeBlanc, an
owner, this week, but they
were not answered.


Founded in 1981, Charter
One manages 17 hotel proper-
ties in Florida, North Carolina
and New York. It is operating
Holiday House without pro-
viding food and entertain-
ment.
Happy ending
Deborah Getechal found
out this week, just five weeks
before her daughter's wedding,
that Holiday House was un-
able to hold the event due to a

Venice Inlet dredging project completed


BY STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER


The Venice dredging
project is complete, the
Charlotte County water-
way cleanup is funded
and the West Coast
Inland Navigation Dis-
trict board is considering
Longboat Key dredging
and other projects.
The WCIND board -
made up of Manatee,
Sarasota, Charlotte and
Lee county commission-
ers learned Friday
that the spot dredging of
the Venice Inlet at Snake
Island is complete. An
estimated 20,000 to
25,000 cubic yards of
sand pulled from the
inlet was deposited
below the mean high
tide line on the public
beach area just south of
the Jetty Villas.
"It's the first project
we've done for WCIND
for years, and it went off
without a hitch," said
Tim Murphy, a U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers pro-
ject manager.
The Army's next pro-
ject will be to remove
200,000 cubic yards of
sand from the Longboat
Key Inlet. Murphy cau-
tioned that project won't
be as quick and easy as
the Venice one turned
out to be.
"(Longboat Key) is
also a much larger pro-
ject that needs boxes to
be checked," he said, cit-
ing environmental per-
mitting and engineering
that's yet to be complet-
ed. "My goal is still to
have a contract out on
the streets by the end of
this calendar year. It is
going to be difficult. We
are relocating the chan-
nel to the south."
Sarasota County Com-
missioner Nora Patterson,
meanwhile, expressed her
frustrations about New
Pass and its condition.
"(New Pass) is very
unstable," Patterson said,
noting that it is filling
with sand.


When the U.S. Coast
Guard gave up its mark-
ing of the channel,
Sarasota County took
up the responsibility.
However, the channel
has moved and that's
made the county mark-
ers useless.
"The fact is that the
Army Corps ... has
never really studied
New Pass to find what
channel might have
some longevity," she
said. "It's really sad. This
is a real boating area. To
end up with no pass to
the Gulf is not a satis-
factory condition."
As part of its consent
agenda, the WCIND
board voted 3-0 to allo-
cate $50,000 to Charlotte
County to clean debris
out of its waterways. The
Charlotte County repre-
sentative, Commissioner
Robert Skidmore, didn't
attend the WCIND meet-
ing.
Andy Stevens, Char-
lotte's acting Environ-
mental Services director,
did attend and said the
money will be used by
the public works depart-
ment, which will con-
duct the cleanup.
"We even have debris
left from Hurricane
Charley washing in, and
some debris has been
exposed by the tides,"
Stevens said, citing
Spring Lake in Port
Charlotte as an example
of a waterway that needs
cleaning.
At the next WCIND
board meeting on May
10, the individual coun-
ties will bring their rec-
ommended marine pro-
jects for funding to the
board.
WCIND generates rev-
enues from property
taxes from the four
counties. While Mana-
tee, Lee and Sarasota
counties generate more
than $1 million, Char-
lotte County generates
less than $80,000.

BUILD from Page 1A


FDOT allocated $1.1 million
for design and construction of
the hangars. It was one of the
projects city council voted to
keep in place in 2008 when it
gutted a joint automated capi-
tal improvement program -
the JACIP between the city,
FDOT and the Federal Aviation
Administration.
In June 2008, city council
forfeited $2.7 million in pro-
jects, saying many would
expand the airport. Among the
projects bumped from the list
were a business-commerce
park design, rehabilitation of
taxiways, design and construc-


tion of the apron, reconfigura-
tion of the existing tie-down
area, construction of a rescue
and firefighting building, a
control tower, construction of
a fuel farm and other projects.

Washington: It's a C-II

In other airport-related
news, a letter to Florida's con-
gressional delegation by Mayor
Ed Martin may have backfired.
Martin's original letter to
Sen. George LeMieux and oth-
ers described the city's attempt
to scale back the airport and
change its airport reference
code from a C-II to a B-II. The
letters asked lawmakers to
consider its attempts to avoid


disruption to airport neigh-
bors, minimize impact on the
golf course and use the city's
updated traffic counts. Other
letters chastised the FAA for
manipulating its own rules to
keep the city from changing
the designation.
LeMieux asked the FAA's
Washington, D.C., head office
to respond. And it did, rein-
forcing previous state and
regional determinations that
Venice Municipal Airport has a
C-II designation.
The Washington office's
directive comes about a week
or two before the city of Venice
formally asks the FAA for a B-II
designation.


The letter reiterated, in a
less subtle tone than before,
that the airport has been in
existence for more than 60
years and predated homes in
the area.
It also noted one of the con-
ditions for approving the golf
course lease on federally oblig-
ated airport property "was that
if the FAA needs the land for an
aeronautical purpose, the
agreement would need to be
extinguished."
"In closing, we have told the
city it cannot downgrade the
airport," wrote Catherine
Lang, the FAA's acting associ-
ate administrator for airports.

Questions and answers

about defective drywall


Some questions about

Chinese drywall affecting

occupants' health, electrical

wiring and others answered.


SOURCE: CPSC,
WWW.DRYWALLRE-
SPONSE.GOV,
JANUARY 2010

Question: What are the
health symptoms and risks?
Answer: The most fre-
quently reported symp-
toms are irritated and
itchy eyes and skin, diffi-
culty in breathing, per-
sistent cough, bloody
noses, runny noses,
recurrent headaches,
sinus infection and asth-
ma attacks. Since many
consumers report that
their symptoms lessen
or go away when they
are away from their
home, but return upon
reentry, it appears that
these symptoms are
short-term and related
to something within the
home.
We are aggressively
investigating if scientific
evidence exists linking
chemical emissions from
the drywall to the report-
ed health complaints. At
this time, however, any
such relationship or
long-term health effects
are unknown.
Question: What are the
electrical or fire safety con-
cerns and what I should I
watch for in my house?
Answer: Consumers
have reported blackened
and corroded metal in
their homes.
Particularly, con-
sumers have reported
failures of certain com-
ponents such as: (1) pre-
mature failures of central
air conditioning evapo-


HOLIDAY from Page lA
fire that occurred at the
end of last month.
Her daughter, Robin
Getechal, and Brett
Wheeler of Venice were
engaged last Easter. They
booked the hotel ban-
quet room and 30 rooms
last May for the 100
guests who would be
attending their wedding
on April 24.
"It is really mean," she
said. "We got stiffed by
the owners and have lost
our $500 deposit.
"Just one trouble after
another. We were devas-
tated when the place
caught fire."
Visiting the hotel the
day after fire, she said
they were informed by a
front-desk manager the

intermittent operation
or failure of appliances,
such as refrigerators and

tronic devices such as

Question: Why doesn't the
CPSC just recall the drywall?
Answer: CPSC cannot
order someone to con-
duct a recall without a
trial.
Our case on behalf of
consumers will have to
be driven by scientific
proof linking the drywall
and the health problems
or the electrical and fire
safety issues, which we
are aggressively pursu-
ing.
Question: When will we
know the results of the inves-
tigation?
Answer: Although we
have urgently commit-
ted significant resources
to this problem, gather-
ing evidence and con-
ducting the necessary
tests will take time. It
could be months before
we can confidently
address the scientific
relationships between
the problem drywall and
the health and safety
concerns raised by con-
sumers.
Be assured that, as
our investigation pro-
gresses, we are commit-
ted to updating con-
sumers regularly with as
much information as
possible.

FEMA says no to state request


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


The Federal Emerg-
ency Management Agen-
cy has declined a request
for financial assistance
and help in determining
the extent of Chinese
drywall problems in
Florida.
'Again the homeown-
ers are left without any
answers and nowhere to
go for help," wrote Venice
resident Jim Silverblatt in
an e-mail response to
Venice Mayor Ed Martin
and other elected offi-
cials.
David Halstead, Inter-
im Director of the Florida
Division of Emergency
Management previously
wrote to FEMA's regional
administrator, Major
Phillip May, requesting
FEMA "distribute finan-
cial aid to the families
suffering as a result of
this defective drywall."


He also requested the
agency conduct a pre-
liminary damage assess-
ment of Chinese drywall
impacts.
It was the formal re-
quest for federal assis-
tance that Venice home-
owners in the Venetian
Golf & River Club and
elsewhere had solicited
from city and state lead-
ers.
But May declined the
request late last week,
saying "conditions expe-
rienced by individuals
from a consumer prod-
uct safety matter, such as
the degradation of im-
ported drywall, does not
constitute an emergency
or major disaster inci-
dent as contemplated
under the Stafford Act."
FEMA said the U.S.
Consumer Product Safe-
ty Commission is the
lead federal agency in-
vestigating reported
health and safety issues


blamed on the imported
drywall. May said the
solution for impacted
Florida residents is to
continue working with
the CPSC and avail
themselves of the reme-
dies announced by the
U.S. Department of
housing and Urban De-
velopment in December
2009. Much of that relief
applies to low income
homes insured by the
Federal Housing Admin-
istration through Com-
munity Development
Block Grants.
"We're instructing our
FHA mortgage lenders
nationwide to extend
temporary relief to allow
these families time to
remove problem damag-
ing drywall and repair
their homes," said FHA
Commissioner David
Stevens in a HUD press
release issued in De-
cember.
"We want to remove


additional pressures for
these families as they
find solutions to allow
them to return to a safe,
decent and sanitary
home."
The CPSC has yet to
conclude its investiga-
tion proving whether the
defective Chinese dry-
wall is, in fact, responsi-
ble for all the electronics
failures and health-relat-
ed issues alleged.
As of March, a state
preassessment found
530 homes in Florida
meet the Florida Depart-
ment of Health threshold
for being impacted.
The CPSC reports that
more than 2,900 con-
sumer complaints have
been filed in 31 states
over defective imported
drywall, but officials
expect the actual num-
ber is far greater.

PASSES from Page 1A


There are currently 259,667 reg-
istered voters in Sarasota County.
A total of 157 precincts were open
for the countywide election, and
70,221 county residents or
about 27 percent of those regis-
tered cast their vote. It was
slightly lower than the 30 percent
to 35 percent turnout Dent had
predicted earlier in the week.
She added that 13,734 county
residents voted during the two-
week early voting period, and that
of the more than 12,000 absentee
ballots mailed out, 11,350 were
returned.
During the 2006 referendum
election, only about 25 percent of
registered voters turned out at the
polls.
The tax was first approved in
2002, and extended for the first
time in 2006.
Passage of the referendum a
mill is $1 per $1,000 of a property's
taxable value will result in $40


THE VOTE
With 100 percent of precincts
reporting Tuesday, unofficial
totals were:
46,326, or 65.97 percent,
voted yes.
23,895, or 34.03 percent,
voted no.


million to $50 million per year for
the next four years for the Sarasota
County school district, officials say.
News of the referendum's pas-
sage was exciting to North Port
High School teacher Carol
LaVallee.
"It means that the students of
Sarasota County will get the edu-
cation they deserve from the best
teachers," she said.
At the George Mullen Activity
Center in North Port, poll workers
reported a steady flow of people
coming to cast their vote around


noon Tuesday.
Leaving the polling place,
where three precincts were locat-
ed, many said they voted for the
referendum because, with either
students in the school system or
children who were teachers, they
didn't want to see funding taken
away from education.
"I absolutely voted yes," said
Ania Morris, who works at the
Women's Resource Center in
North Port. "I'm actually for
increased funding, not just for
maintaining it."
Some did cast nay votes, how-
ever.
"I'm a homeowner," said two-
year North Port resident David
Ebbole, who voted no. "I don't
want my taxes to go up."
The tax is one property owners
already pay, however. There will be
no increase due to the referen-
dum.

OBITUARIES
Eloise C. Bracke
Eloise Carolyn Bracke passed
away peacefully at the Tidewell
Hospice and Palliative Care facility
at Plantation Golf & Country Club,
Venice, Fla., on Saturday, March
13, 2010, after a full and wonderful
life.
Born Dec. 16, 1917, to Jacob
Vincent Metz and Pauline Nina
Payne in Ironton, Ohio, Eloise
married Peter Paul Bracke (U.S. Air
Force) in 1950. Peter was at her
side the entire time during the
final weeks and days of her life
here on earth. He was holding her
hand when she left it. She was the
love of his life.
Eloise is survived by her hus-
band, Peter; their son, Thomas
Paul (University of Virginia,1975)
and his wife, Mary Irene (Universi-
ty of Virginia, 1976); grandchil-
dren Katherine Marie (George-
town University, 2003, Ohio State
University Medical School, 2010),
Brian Joseph (Fordham University,
2006) and Clara Lynn (University
of Pennsylvania, 2008), of whom
she was immeasurably proud.
Eloise's second child, Paula Jean,
died at birth in 1957.
Eloise attended Wittenberg
College and served our country
during World War II in the Red
Cross. Eloise loved beautiful
things, loved to entertain, and was
an avid gardener. She touched the
lives of many with her social grace
and beautiful floral arrangements.
Her hats and shoes outnumbered
those of many contemporary fash-
ion queens. She and Peter loved to
dance, and she was the belle of the
balls long before "Dancing With
the Stars." She was Peter's dedi-
cated companion and profes-
sional aide. Living in Dayton,
Berlin, Germany, Chicago and
Washington, D.C., she and Peter
traveled the world, including
many wonderful return trips to
Germany. Eloise worked at George
Washington University during the
'70s and helped her husband,
Peter, publish his doctoral disser-
tation and launch his second
career as a college professor. She
kept a beautiful home and was
always in charge of household
operations. They enjoyed many
adventures together including ski-
ing, camping and sailing. Not to be
outdone by her husband, Eloise


navigated the Intracoastal Water-
way from the Annapolis to Mara-
thon, Fla., with a girlfriend in a
20-foot Mako. Eloise was a long-
standing member of St. Mark's
Lutheran Church in Springfield,
Va.
She believed in God the Father
Almighty, Maker of Heaven and
Earth, and in the Lord Jesus Christ.
She is welcomed home with great
celebration.
The family wishes to thank the
doctors, staff and volunteers at the
Tidewell facility in Venice, Fla., for
their care during Eloise's time at
the facility: Dr. Carmel Quigley,
Paul, Ali, Karen, Holly, Mary,
Becky, Heather, Mary Ann, Audrey,
Michael, Joellen, Dolly, Patrick and
the many volunteers who come to
Tidewell to share their musical and
gifted talents; there are no words
to describe your ministry.
Services: A private funeral ser-
vice will be conducted by Pastors
Trower and Carlson of St. Mark's
at Arlington National Cemetery in
Arlington, Va., on Thursday, March
25, at 3 p.m., where Eloise will be
buried. Friends and family mem-
bers are invited to a reception
afterward at the Fort Myers
Officers Club to remember Eloise.
An informal gathering of friends
and family is planned at Capri
West in Venice, Fla. The date and
time will be announced. St. Mark's
is located at 5800 Backlick Road,
Springfield, VA 22150. Ewing
Funeral Home, Venice, Fla., is in
charge of arrangements.
Contributions: St. Mark's Lutheran
Church, www.stmarks-elca.org, is
accepting donations in Eloise's
name. The family requests that
you send your donation in lieu of
flowers.

Shootings of police


officers on the rise


KEN KLEINLEIN
CRIME SCENE


Murders of police offi-
cers have increased dra-
matically.
These acts of vio-
lence occur for myriad
motives and reasons.
In Lakewood, Wash.,
Maurice Clemmons shot
and killed four officers
as they were sitting in a
restaurant doing paper-
work. Clemmons was
eventually killed by a
police officer respond-
ing to a possible aban-
doned stolen vehicle.
A police officer was
gunned down while sit-
ting in his patrol car in
Penn Hills, Pa.
In Oakland, Calif., four
officers were shot and
killed while conducting a
routine traffic stop.
In Pittsburgh, Pa.,
three police officers were
shot and killed in the per-
formance of duty.
Two officers in Oka-
loosa County, Fla., met a
similar fate.
This is by no means a
new syndrome. It has
occurred all too fre-
quently in years past.
Between 1971 and
1981, 12 New York City
police officers were shot
and killed. The Black
Liberation Army played a
role in a number of those
murders, including the
ambush execution of
officers Rocco Laurie and
Greg Foster.

Space constraints do
not allow for numerous
other incidents to be
listed here. I have not
included statistics on
officers who were shot
and survived the attacks.
What are the causes
contributing to this
senseless and psychotic
behavior?
Some individuals have
been arrested in the past
and seek revenge against
the police. Officers are
looked upon as part of
the establishment, and
those with a political or
anti-social axe to grind
take their anger out on
them in acts of vio-
lence. It makes media
copy, and the criminals,
extremists and terror-
ists receive the notori-
ety they seek.
In some cases the
perpetrator is simply
attempting to escape
arrest. He or she may be
out on bail or parole on
past charges and vio-
lently resist a return to
custody.
Others are psychotic
and have the capacity to
commit violent crime.
Police officers are fully
aware of the dangers they
face each time they go on
patrol, but do not hesi-
tate to perform their
duties.
John Wayne said it
best: "Courage is experi-
encing fear but saddling
up anyway."

mer NYPD detective

POLICE BEAT


14-year old
pedestrian hit
by truck
Eighth-grade Venice
Middle School student
Nicholas Arce was walk-
ing to the bus stop on
Briarwood Road on
Monday, according to a
Florida Highway Patrol
report.
At the same time Arce
was walking north-
bound, 18-year-old Brian
J. Cronin was driving his
1988 Ford 500 pickup
truck westbound
approaching the inter-
section of Palm Drive.
Arce was crossing
Briarwood Road to get to
the school bus stop at
the intersection of Palm
Drive when the right
front of Cronin's pickup
struck him.
Arce was flown to
Bayfront Medical Center.
Scott Ferguson,
spokesman for the
Sarasota County School
District, said he had
heard that Arce's injuries
didn't appear to be life-
threatening, but he did
not have an official
update on the boy's con-
dition.
According to the FHP
report, charges are pend-
ing against Cronin.
Multi-tasking and
driving don't mix
The Sarasota County
Sheriff's office has
released a public service
announcement illustrat-
ing how multi-tasking
can be a deadly combi-
nation when driving.
"Multi-tasking is
essential for most of us
to maintain our fast-
paced lives," said Sheriff
Tom Knight in a state-
ment. "We hope this PSA
reminds people there is a
time and a place for
everything, but when
you are behind the
wheel, safe driving has to
be the focus."
You can view the
announcement at
www.SarasotaSheriff.org.

County Sheriff's Office
deputy
that his

The Cox
man
said his wife had been

said his wife literally
kicked him out of bed.
The man tried to leave
the bedroom, but his

Child

venes >
An
11-year-
old boy
came to
his Wilcott
moth-
er's defense in a domes-
tic battery incident,
according to a Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office
report.
Deputies found the
victim crying when they
arrived. She said her
fiance had battered her
and left the scene. She
said they had been argu-
ing and, when he
became verbally abusive,
her 11-year-old son
intervened.
The man then began
verbally abusing the boy
and made threatening
advances toward him.
The mother told her
fiance several times to
leave her son alone, but
he continued. She
slapped her fiance in the
face because she feared
he would hurt her son.
The fiance then slapped
her in the face and asked
her if she wanted more.
The couple then took
the argument outside.
The woman said her
fiance grabbed her by
the hair and slammed
her against her car. He
struck her again and she
fell to the ground. She
got up and went inside,
and he left the scene.
The deputy saw red
marks on the woman's
neck, face and arms, and
she had dirt on her
hands, knees and el-
bows.
There were four chil-
dren present during the
battery, and two of them
gave written statements
about the incident.
At the scene, the
deputy spoke to the
fiance on the victim's
phone. He informed the
deputy that he was not
going back to the scene
because he was afraid of
going to jail. He said he
would turn himself in at
a later date.
At 3:45 a.m. March 13,
Brandon Joseph Wolcott,
41, 4700 block Egret
Road, Venice, was arrest-
ed and charged with
domestic battery. His
bond is $5,000.

WORDS WORTH
HEARING
rlm-m 011 k6 .4


Vicki M. Connell |
Doctor of Audiology

I have a lot of ear
infections and
experience drainage
from my ears which
prevents me from using
hearing aids. I still
need to hear somehow.
What would you
suggest?

Most hearing devices
require the use of an ear
piece in the ear canal.
For persons who cannot
have their ear canal
occluded, there is a
special device called the
BAHA that provides
amplification while
leaving the ear canal
completely open. The
BAHA or Bone
Anchored Hearing Aid
captures the sound
around you and directs it
to a titanium implant
placed just behind the
ear. Persons with single-
sided hearing
impairment or those with
conductive-type hearing
losses are good
candidates for the
BAHA. It is especially
beneficial for persons
with chronically draining
ears sush as yourself
where continued use of
conventional hearing
aids can increase your
risk of worsening
infections caused by the
use of an earmold. A
BAHA is also an
excellent alternative for
those persons who no
longer benefit from a
traditional hearing aid.
Ask your physician if
you may be a candidate
for the BAHA or contact
the Doctors of
Audiology at Woodmere
Hearing and Balance
Centers, Inc. at (941)
492-4327 for more
information and a trial of
the BAHA sound
processor so you can
hear the sound of a
BAHA device before
deciding if it is right for
you.

OPINION


GONDOLIER SUN EDITOR
BOB MUDGE
bmudge@venicegondolier.com


OUR VIEW


Saturday mail headed to dead-letter office?


N o mail on Saturday?
Given the dismal financial
trends for the U.S. Postal Service,
it seems likely we'll see an end to week-
end home delivery sometime soon.
The nostalgic among us and
who doesn't harbor vague hopes of a
hand-written letter from a long-lost
friend? may bemoan this state of
affairs. But the recession, continued
competition from the likes of FedEx
and UPS, as well as the ever-increas-
ing use of e-mail and Internet social
networking sites is putting the pinch
on the venerable institution begun
under the Ben Franklin's bifocaled
eyes in 1775.
More and more, it's looking like a
done deal. The real question is when.
Consider the numbers:
Mail volume is plummeting. The
Postal Service said it handled 213 bil-
lion pieces of mail in 2006,177 billion
pieces in 2009. Only 166 billion are
expected in fiscal year 2010.


Operating revenue fell 9 percent,
to $68.1 billion, in 2009.
Some $3.8 billion in losses were
on the books in fiscal year 2009.
Postmaster General John Potter
warned losses could be as much as $7
billion for 2010. For the next decade,
Potter projected possible losses of
$238 billion.
Potter said efficiencies might save
half the costs. But the Postal Service
has already cut its work force by 25
percent in the past 10 years. And with-
out changes to the basic business
model, there may be no alternatives
other than substantially higher mail
rates ultimately, a self-defeating
business practice or direct federal
subsidies.
It's unlikely Congress will feel
moved to readopt the Postal Service
and fund what it needs to fulfill a mis-
sion as a full public service, regardless
of economics. Besides, the alterna-
tives are far more attractive.


Potter wants to take a more busi-
nesslike approach. First off, he wants
the authority to cut the number of
post offices.
The Postal Service now has 36,000
branches. The average branch has 600
customers a week, while the average
grocery store has 20,000, so some
consolidation seems overdue.
Shutting low-performing branches
might save $10 billion a year, the
USPS estimates. The problem is,
every small post office has vocal local
supporters and they all have con-
gressmen who want to be seen fight-
ing for the little guy.
Potter said he would try to ensure
alternative sites exist in those areas.
The Postal Service already has been
moving to alternative retail outlets,
such as at many Beall's locations. We
can easily foresee post offices in 24-
hour Walmarts, where free-standing,
automated systems would be very
convenient.


Getting back to where we began,
the bottom line is that eliminating
Saturday delivery would save an esti-
mated $3.5 billion annually-virtual-
ly the entire amount of red ink in
2009. Post offices would remain open,
so people would still have an option
to conduct business on the weekend.
That's more than can be said for other
government agencies.
It's time to consider that change.
Current economics practically dictate
it, and the trends will only get worse.
We may feel the small pangs of loss
initially, but probably not 10 years
from now.
Just remember, the legendary Pony
Express operated for only 18 months
from 1860 to 1861. It lost money. It
ceased just days after the telegraph
completed its transcontinental con-
nection.
Emerging technologies and eco-
nomics always bring change. Busi-
nesses adapt or they die.


Building bridges


LANG CAPASSO
PUBLISHER


Who could not say that
going over a bridge is one of
the most rewarding things you
can do behind the wheel of
your automobile?
The world's great bridges -
Golden Gate, Sydney Harbor,
Brooklyn, Tower and, yes, the
Sunshine Skyway call to us,
and we have to respond as we
slowly ascend up one side and
gently glide down the other
side.
There have even been mov-
ies set to the greatness of
bridges. Movies like "The
Bridges at Toko-Ri," "A Bridge
Too Far," "Bridge to Tera-
bithia," and the greatest bridge
movie of them all, "The Bridge
on the River Kwai." Even Sarah
Palin had a bridge, the "bridge
to nowhere."
Of course, we in Venice
know all about bridges, the
"beauty" side and the "beast
side." Matter of fact, many of
us probably have a movie
named for them, like "Bridge
Over the River Cry."
Our office is located virtual-
ly in the shadows of the middle
bridge. Sometimes, while I'm
sitting at one of the park
benches by our building hav-
ing my brown-bag lunch, a
boat will go by and the bridge
will have to rise. This event
happens to the delight to the
boaters and the derision of the
hundreds of cars stuck in traf-
fic as that one boat or barge
makes its way to the next
bridge, where it can wreak
havoc on traffic all over again.
Sitting there watching a
boat go by literally within
touching distance, you forget


that many times you too are
caught by that same bridge
and you too are in a hurry. You
do not think of that though as
you stop everything you are
doing and just watch the boat
go through and the bridge go
up or down.
There is a hotel in Savannah
- the Hyatt, I think that had
a light in the bedrooms that lit
up when a huge freighter went
by. It was amazing you liter-
ally had to look up as it tra-
versed the canal next to the
hotel, about 50 feet from your
porch. That is the feeling I get
when I see a yacht or other
boat go by.
The south and north
bridges are beautiful as you
come at them and reach the
summit and can look ahead
and see the vista of our town
open up before you.
Oh, I know they are no-
where near the scope or
majesty of the Bixby, Ambas-
sador or Chesapeake Bridge,
but they are ours and offer just
about as much of a view as any
small bridge can.
So, when the lights start
flashing and the barrier bars
go down and the motors kick
in to raise the bridge, take in
the whole experience in a little
different light. The bridges are
not what brought you here but
are certainly part of the reason
you are here the laid-back
charm of that city in Italy with
the same name.
Also, when you are
approaching the south or
north bridge, take a good look
at them as they really are
something to see. Even some
of the oldies have to admit
they are 10 times better than
the two lanes they replaced.
Some really old-time resi-
dents might wish there were
never any bridges or an
Intracoastal Waterway at all.
But you have to admit that if
you have to have a bridge, we
lucked out all the way across
the board.

Lend justice a hand


Disturbing. Wanted to let you know that I am very appalled at
the fact that this lady was arrested for slapping her two drunken
sons. I don't understand why she was arrested. I think her sons
should have been arrested for disturbing the peace instead. It
seems that people are allowed to harass and intimidate others,
all in the name of freedom of speech. But I do believe we need to
arrest people on disturbing the peace charges to help curb all
that is going on today.


Waste of money. No, the
Venice High School Perform-
ing Arts Center should not
have a Northern Italian ap-
pearance because it shouldn't
be done at all. That was never
put to a real vote by the people
of Venice. In fact, it's a waste of
money. It's nothing but special
interest pork to accommodate
the special interests that want
to use the Venice share of the
sales tax dollars for that pro-
ject. We have many other uses
for that money in the city of
Venice.
Instant recall. Wake up,
Venice. Four members of city
council are working ardently to
bankrupt our city. Sue Lang is
leading three of her cronies to
spend your tax dollars to fight
the FAAs directive on the air-
port, which has been reviewed
on three separate occasions by
airport consultants plus attor-
neys who all advise the city
council to follow the FAA's plan
and instructions. Now, Lang
and her merry dissidents are
going to the mat with the FAA
once more. How many mil-
lions must they spend to get
the picture? We need to recall
Lang, Bennett, Moore and
Zavodnyik before they bank-
rupt the city treasury with their
stupidity.
Pepper spray. The trimmed
trees at the airport look very
good, but unless the pepper
trees are treated, they will
regrow and look the same as
before in a matter of a couple
of years.
Real reason. When will the


Let 'em


Have It


Gondolier Sun report the real
reasons for problems at the
airport, which has cost us mil-
lions in consultant and legal
fees. It is obvious that the real
reasons are caused by the
behavior of three council
members who live at the end
of runway 31 and don't like air-
planes flying over their houses.
Sue Lang, Ed Martin and John
Moore believe that fighting the
FAA, the airport users, the
receiver and a federal judge
will limit airport traffic from
flying over their houses. Their
actions started the e-mail fias-
co, which was all about the air-
port. Then they engaged four
attorneys. The cost so far: about
a quarter of a million dollars.


They ignore all the advice from
all these expensive experts.
Lang's response: "We need to
stick to our guns." When will it
stop?
Island daze. I can't believe
the Gondolier Sun would pub-
lish a magazine that's called
Discover Venice which arrived
in today's newspaper. It shows
a picture of a coastal scene
which very, very clearly is not
Venice. We do not have this lit-
tle tiny island off of our coast.
Somebody needs to take
charge of the Gondolier Sun
because this is just stupid.
Upset. We'd like to suggest
you rename your Let's Go sec-
tion to Let's Go to Charlotte
County. It no longer pertains to
Venetians and we're very dis-
appointed. The publisher
changed this several months
ago and is adamant about hav-
ing it as a vehicle to describe
activities in Charlotte County.
As Venice subscribers, we are
very upset. The publisher does
not seem to care. Our second
comment is, we are complete-
ly amazed that the Gondolier
Sun was unable to cover a most
wonderful program which took
place a week ago at the Venice
High School in conjunction with
the literacy program. It was a
presentation by the co-author
of "Three Cups of Tea." Since
that beautiful program took
place, you've issued two edi-
tions of your newspaper with-
out a dot of coverage. This was
probably the best program
that happened in Venice in
years, and I have lived here
since the early '60s so I know of
what I speak. My husband
agrees. Shame on you.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Let's Go was
changed more than a few months
ago as a result of a company
decision to consolidate the Venice
and Charlotte publications. We
offered extensive coverage lead-
ing up to the literacy program,
including an Our Town front with
an interview with the author.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Turtle ordinance in

a different light

Editor:
The proposed turtle ordinance is simply the prod-
uct of overzealous advocates, intent on eliminating all
lights, with no regard for the rights and safety of
beachfront residents. Just think of being told that
reading a book in your backyard after dark would be
illegal for six months out of the year. That's why there
was such a public outcry.
In all fairness, the committee all but admitted that
the wording in the ordinance would not be strictly
enforced and that some shielded lights would be
allowed. The question is why have the silly, unen-
forceable wording in the first place? Is the answer to
provide wiggle room for future tightening of enforce-
ment? To their credit, and at the urging of Kathleen
Weeden, our city engineer, the committee agreed to
reconsider some of the overreaching wording and to
make it more consistent with Sarasota County's ordi-
nance, which seems to be working very well.
The answer here is a strong ordinance, together
with education and intelligent enforcement. Did you
know that, per Mote Marine, 93 percent of hatchling
disorientations that occurred in Venice for the period
2001-09 came from sources other than single-family
homes? Probably not. That's why targeted education
and intelligent enforcement are essential to the
preservation of this species.
The Environmental Task Force seems to be going
down this path and also reaching out to beachfront
residents to join in their efforts. That's the right
answer. I'm now cautiously optimistic that we can
finally begin to reverse the negative trends in hatch-
ling disorientations here in Venice.

SUN NEWSPAPERS 11A

Editor:
I get really annoyed at
government handouts in
the energy field, both
state and federal.
We read in your news-
paper articles about peo-
ple actually making mon-
ey off the government.
This kind of reminds me of
the energy tax credit of
Jimmy Carter, which never
went anywhere to help out
our dependency. Most of
the solar systems sold back
then are not even in ser-
vice due to the cost of
repairs. I wonder where
this stuff will be in 10 years.
We must understand
and encourage everyone
to do their homework on
our so-called energy cri-
sis. Let the free market
dictate this industry, not
government handouts.
When tax credits go
away, most all solar com-
panies do too.
Look at ethanol. The
government forced that on
us with very little research
done; now it is causing
trouble in the automotive
and marine industry in the
name of independence.
Remember, America, oil is
our friend.
Well, at least we know
where some of the stimu-
lus money went.

Find out facts on newfloodplain maps


SUE LANG
GUEST COLUMNIST


Recently I reported at one of
our city council meetings on
some information I had ob-
tained from the Federal Emerg-
ency Management Agency and
the Southwest Florida Water
Management District regarding
the new floodplain maps they
are preparing.
FEMA is doing this because
many properties that were
recently damaged by floods


had not been identified as
being in a floodplain and had
no flood insurance.
There are approximately
2,021 parcels within the city
limits of Venice that are tenta-
tively being added to the flood-
plain map. Chief Engineer
Kathleen Weeden is working
diligently to ensure that no
parcel in our city is unduly
added to the floodplain map.
Public hearings sponsored by
Swiftmud will also be held in
the upcoming year.
To find out if your property
is one that has been identified
to come into the floodplain,
you can call SWFLMD, (352)
796-7211, or go to its Web site,
www.watermatters.org. It's a
little difficult to navigate, so I
have obtained a list of all of the
parcels by street address. One
of our residents, Mr. Mike Raf-
ferty of Bay Indies, which may
have some parcels that are


impacted, was nice enough to
put the list in alphabetical
order so it is easier to look up a
specific parcel. If you need to,
you may contact me: slang@
ci.venice.fl.us or 486-2626 for
help in looking up a parcel by
property address.
If your property is on the
list, keep in mind that the list
isn't definite yet and it will take
at least a year before the new
floodplain maps go into effect.
If you own your home or
building outright, you are not
required to do anything or pur-
chase flood insurance, al-
though it's recommended. If
you have a mortgage, your
bank or finance company will
likely contact you and require
you to purchase flood insur-
ance. However, if you purchase
flood insurance before the new
maps become official, I'm
being told you will receive a
discount because the rates will


be based on the existing maps.
Another consequence of
having your property placed in
the floodplain is limitations on
building and improvements.
At my suggestion, Venice City
Council also directed staff to
review our code of ordinances
regarding FEMA-related build-
ing elevation requirements.
After speaking to staff at
FEMA, I learned that our code
is much stricter than FEMA's.
FEMA allows improve-
ments, without triggering the
elevation requirements, of up
to 49.99 percent of the value of
the structure within each 10-
year period from the time the
property was placed in a flood-
plain area. Venice's code only
allows up to 49.99 percent dur-
ing the life of the structure.
This could deter people from
making necessary repairs and
upgrades, such as energy-effi-
ciency improvements and


other normal replacement
work, because once you go
over the 49.99 percent thresh-
old you would have to elevate
the structure to the FEMA-
required level.
Both FEMA and our staff
have indicated to me that it is
feasible to change our code
without significantly impact-
ing our city rating, which also
affects your individual rates.
Keep your eye out for up-
coming city council agendas
that will address this issue. With
some well-thought-out initia-
tives, the consequences of hav-
ing a property added to the
floodplain map can be mini-
mized. If you have any sugges-
tions, please send them in to
city council or take advantage of
our public participation ses-
sions at the beginning and end
of each of our meetings.
Sue Lang is a member of
Venice City Council.

Wind hurting

local fishing

First, we had our coldest
winter in years and then we
had probably our windiest
late winter and early spring.
Well, I'm here to tell you all of
that foolishness is history. No
more highs in the 50s. No
more 15 to 25 mph winds. It's
going to be very calm and
peaceful.
The forecast finally looks
positive and maybe we will
have a grand finale for our
sheepies. I'm the eternal
optimist.
They are catching a few
flounder, whiting, sheepshead
and a few other odds and ends
at theVenice Municipal Pier as
well as a few sheepshead at
both of the jetties. As soon as
the water clears up a little bit,
the pompano and mackerel
should also show up.
One fisherman managed
to catch nine macs at the
North Skyway Pier, according
to Jamie at the bait shop. This
is a good sign and maybe we
will see them later this week.
I went bass fishing for an
hour the other day. I am sorry
to say I never had a pickup
on my artificial worms.
Unfortunately, there were
plenty of tilapia swarming
around. I believe the reason
my bass fishing is way off this
season is the aggressive
tilapia are chasing bass off
their nests.
The inshore fishing report
could be a lot better.

Venice falls to Lakewood Ranch


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


Blame it on the 10 days
off or not getting the key hit.
Whatever the reason,
Venice dropped its first
home game of the season as
Lakewood Ranch rallied for
five runs over the final two
innings for a 5-1 win over
the Lady Indians on Tuesday
in a nondistrict game at
Venice High.
"We got an 'L on the
board," said Venice coach
Dan Rubin. "I told them 'I
am not going to tell you to
forget about it. I want you to
remember what it feels like
to lose at home because I
don't want to do it again."
Hurting Venice might
have been the fact the Lady
Indians haven't played a
game since March 5.
The Lady Indians, who


had their six-game winning
streak snapped, grabbed a
1-0 lead in the first inning.
With two outs, senior
Chelsea Zgrabik connected
on her fourth home run of
the season over the center-
field fence on a 1-1 count.
Venice junior right-han-
der Mel Dembinski limited
the Lady Mustangs (12-1-1)
to just one hit in the first five
innings. Ranch left four run-
ners in scoring position in
the five innings.
The Lady Indians didn't
get the key hit in the second
and fifth innings as they
loaded the bases but a
groundout and flyout ended
both innings.
Lakewood Ranch got to
Dembinski in the sixth
inning. With one out, Dana
Hutchins and Taylor New-
ton hit consecutive doubles
to tie it at 1-1. Stacie Nelson


followed with a single to
score Newton with the go-
ahead run.
The Lady Mustangs
added three runs in the
seventh inning on a RBI
groundout and two-run sin-
gle by Rachel Slowik.
"One team decided to get
into overdrive," said Rubin.
"We were in the same situa-
tion twice with bases loaded
and couldn't get it done.
Bottom line is they got some
breaks and hit the ball."
Venice only managed
three hits and just one off
relief pitcher Brittany
Kilduff, who entered with
two runners on base and
one out in the second
inning. Kilduff had seven
strikeouts in 5 2/3 innings.
"I want to attribute that to
the fact we haven't played in

BASEBALL
VENICE SLIPS PAST GULF COAST: This time, Venice was on
the winning end of a 1-0 decision as the Indians scored in the
bottom of the ninth inning to edge Naples Gulf Coast in a Class
5A-District 10 game Monday night at Venice High.
"Baseball at its finest,"' said Venice coach Craig Faulkner. "We
battled every inning and every pitch was important. There was a
lot of strategy."
On Feb. 26, Venice (4-6 overall, 3-1 district) was on the short
end of a 1-0 loss to the Sharks, who are ranked No. 3 in the
MaxPreps Freeman Rankings.
The teams are now tied with 3-1 district records.
In the ninth inning, a groundout produced the first out then
Brent Krauss reached on an error by the third baseman. Alec
Stiver, who ended with two hits, singled off Gulf Coast reliever
Eddy Obrenski to put runners at the first and third base. With the
infielders playing for the double play, Mike Geers grounded to
shortstop, who got the lead runner but missed completing the
double play at first base allowing Krauss to score the winning
run.
Venice starter Aaron Rhodes allowed just three hits in eight
innings with eight strikeouts. Joe lorio got the win in relief by
pitching the ninth inning.
The Indians had four hits total including three off Gulf Coast
starter Bo Logan, who ended with 11 strikeouts and one walk.
"Bo Logan doesn't give up runs;' said Faulkner. "He is a dom-
inant pitcher and it's hard to score off him. Rhodes is also a
dominant pitcher."

were recognized for both academic and athletic success. "We are proud to be able to recognize the importance of the student por-
tion of student/athlete" said Ferretti. "In addition to supporting the game aspect of the VHS soccer program, we wanted to also focus
on the importance of academics, and thus we have launched the scholarship program to help defray some college expenses."









Hospitals adapt to presence of North Port ER


BY ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER


If emergency rooms
are the "front doors of
hospitals," then Sarasota
Memorial Healthcare Sys-
tem is the new neighbor
on the block in North Port.
When Sarasota Mem-
orial opened the North
Port Emergency Care
Center on Sept. 1, no one
was certain whether North
Port residents would em-
brace the facility.
Would they go to this
24-hour emergency
room at North Port Med-
ical Plaza or would they
continue to use the ERs
at hospitals in Sarasota
and Charlotte counties,
where many of their fam-
ily physicians and gener-
al practitioners have
privileges?
Having invested $20
million in the facility
located off Toledo Blade
Boulevard, even Sarasota
Memorial had concerns,
expecting the North Port
ER to lose $4 million in its
first year. But hospital
officials were surprised
by the community's re-
sponse.
SMH officials project-
ed 8,000 to 10,000 patient
visits during the first 12
months. But in mid-
September, when the
average number of daily
visits was said to be 50 to
55, with a high of 65, hos-
pital spokesperson Kim
Savage said that was two
to three times what was
anticipated. Staff has
been "somewhat overrun
by volume," Dr. Bill
Colgate, medical director
of SMH emergency ser-
vices, said at the time.
"That number has
held," SMH Chief Oper-
ating Officer Michael
Harrington said recently.
SMH recorded 7,281
patient visits from Oct. 1,
when the current fiscal
year began, through Feb.
11, an average of 54.3
patients per day.
"Now it looks like we
are going to be in the 21 to
24 (thousand range this
fiscal year)," he said. "We
have hired more staff, of
course. Our capacity (facil-
ity size) certainly will allow
us to see a lot more than
that, probably twice that
amount."
SMH had approxi-
mately 50 employees in
North Port in September.
There are approximately
75 now.
Visits up
Englewood Commun-
ity Hospital experienced
a slight increase in emer-
gency room visits in 2009
as compared to 2008,
according to Chief Ex-
ecutive Officer Mary Ann
Conroy.
"This is a reflection of
our continued focus on
providing exceptional care,


close to home," she said.
Anyone can find Eng-
lewood Community Hos-
pital's average ER wait
times by going to the orga-
nization's Web site (www.
englewoodcommhospit
al.com) or by texting "ER"
to 23000. ECH's average
ER wait time was 27 min-
utes in 2009, "well below
the national average of
one hour," Conroy said.

"You are looking
at more acute
care that they are
going to need (in
Venice) so it's
important that
you have more
comprehensive
services, mean-
ing if they come
in for an ER visit
they have a one
in four chance of
being admitted.
To come in and
be admitted adds
to the continuity
of care."


Venice
Regional Medical
Center Chief
Operating Officer
Darcey O'Brien


With an average age of
68, Venice residents have
different needs in an ER
than residents of North
Port, where the average
age is 38. In the past, a
Venice island resident
who suffered a stroke
would have had to travel
17 miles to the main
SMH ER in Sarasota. But
Venice Regional Medical
Center filled that gap in
service by becoming cer-
tified as a primary stroke
center in June 2009 "so
we can receive stroke
patients from the field in
our ER," Venice Regional
Chief Operating Officer
Darcey O'Brien said.
"You are looking at
more acute care that they
are going to need (in
Venice) so it's important
that you have more com-
prehensive services,
meaning if they come in
for an ER visit they have a
one in four chance of
being admitted. To come
in and be admitted adds
to the continuity of care."
Venice Regional's ER
visits increased by 2.8
percent from 2008 (Sep-
tember through Novem-
ber) to 2009, from 7,148
to 7,353.

remains in the car is John Ringling's bathtub.
Most of the ornate trim has disappeared, although Homrne has discovered some
bits of trim molding here and there just enough for him to replicate when the
time comes.
A recent find was a strip of paper, which Homrne said was an address label for an
Edison wax cylinder.
"I might have the actual voice of John Ringling," Homrne said.
The cylinders were played on an earlyVictrola, which played wax cylinders
rather than records.
Such finds keep this circus history buff moving forward, one step at a time, to
complete what has become his life's work.
Such finds also entice members of the NRHS chapter who share his enthusiasm
for trains.

Woman shows embroidery

at Historic Spanish Point


BY RITA WALLACE
SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER SUN
Carmen Johnson, of Venice, has
been a member of the Sarasota chapter
of the Embroiderers' Guild of America
for two years.
Her superb samplers on display at
Historic Spanish Point through March
are a testimony of her intricate stitch-
ing techniques and preference of
using 32- and 40-count threads, such
as French lace for Dorothy's Garden,
Pear Lakeside Linens DMC for Silent


Sampler, Needlepoint Silk for E S Floral,
Meadow Rue for Flowers of One
Garden, and Splendor Silk for Each Day.
Johnson's use of color is beautiful.
Her mother instilled in her young
daughter a love for embroidery.
Johnson has served as treasurer of the
Sarasota chapter of the Embroiderers'
Guild of America for two years. To her
credit, she was a founding member of
the Queen City Group in Cincinnati,
Ohio, where she was active for 15 years.
Johnson attends the sampler group of
the Sarasota chapter; it meets monthly.

Evening of Excellence: Area students win art


The Evening of Excellence is an
event that raises funds to benefit
41,500 public school students
through the the foundation.
BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER
Eight local high school students took
home nine of the top 25 student art awards
at the Education Foundation of Sarasota
County's 2010 Evening of Excellence Feb.
26. About 400 attended the event at Mi-
chael's On East in Sarasota.
Student art awards of $500 to $2,000
were presented to each of the winning stu-
dents, one of whom won for two pieces in
the top 25.
Combining the generosity of art award
sponsors with proceeds from the event,
more than $40,000 in monetary and in-
kind donations were awarded to support
student artists, the art teachers and high
school art departments.
The event featured a dinner with an auc-


tion that put the 25 Best of the Best student
art works on the auction block. Student art-
works from seven high schools in the dis-
trict were auctioned off at the 15th annual
fundraiser.
This year's event grossed more than
$250,000 in cash and in-kind support,
including a live auction total of $51,400.
During the past 15 years, the program has
raised more than $1.75 million for the
schools and raised awareness of the vital
role played by the arts in education.
The Evening of Excellence is an innova-
tive art program and established social
event that raises significant funds yearly to
benefit 41,500 public school children
through the work of the foundation.
Education Foundation executive director
Cindy Kaiser and board chair David
Sessions recognized this year's award-win-
ning high school artists, their parents and
their art teachers. Meg Mahoney chaired
the 2010 event committee of 28 volunteers.
Teachers of the winning artists in paint-
ing, drawing, electronic media and photog-
raphy were Craig Seidell and Alice Sciarrino
at Venice High School and Retsy Lauer at


Pine View School. The winning local stu-
dents, title of their artwork and awards are:

have been enrolled full-time in
a Florida public school (tradi-
tional, charter or alternative)
in the previous year to be eligi-
ble for enrollment in SVS.
According to current Florida
law, students who were home-
schooled during the 2009-2010
school year are not eligible.
The district has more than
80 students enrolled in the
school during 2009-10, the first


year the option has been avail-
able.
Florida Department of Edu-
cation requires school districts to
offer an online learning option
for students in grades kinder-
garten-12. In accordance with
this state requirement, Sarasota
Virtual School is an interactive
learning environment created
through technology in which the
student and teacher are separat-
ed by time, space or both. The
school meets all Florida public
school standards and require-
ments. Students completing
graduation requirements will
receive a high school diploma
from SVS.
The Sarasota County School
District contracts with outside
vendors approved by the school
board. A company known as K12
provides the district with online
learning services for students in
grades kindergarten-eight; Flor-
ida Virtual School serves stu-
dents in grades nine-12.
The school uses a state-
approved curriculum with
instructional materials that
include a computer, Internet
access and printed materials.

Epiphany students stage

'Joseph and the Amazing

Technicolor Dreamcoat'


PHOTO COURTESY OF VENICE THEATRE
Students from Epiphany Cathedral School practice their roles in
"Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" at Venice Theatre.


FROM VENICE THEATRE

Students from Epiphany
Cathedral School in Venice
will perform in the delightful
musical parable "Joseph and
the Amazing Technicolor
Dreamcoat."
They will perform on the
MainStage of Venice Theatre,
140 W. Tampa Ave., Saturday,
March 20, at 2 p.m. and Sun-
day, March 21, at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $16 for adults,
$8 for children and are on sale
now. Call 488-2215.
Directed by Venice
Theatre's principal teacher
and notable actor, director
and choreographer Brad
Wages, "Joseph and the Amaz-
ing Technicolor Dreamcoat" is
the first full production com-
bining the talents of the be-
ginning and intermediate the-
ater students at Epiphany.
The production is the prod-
uct of a partnership formed
between the school and
Venice Theatre five years ago.
Epiphany students attend


daily instruction at the theater
during the school year that
fulfills the students' theater
arts credits for the year.
Wages said: "We decided to
mount 'Joseph and the Amaz-
ing Technicolor Dreamcoat' in
celebration of ECS's 50-year
anniversary. The students are
rising to the challenge of re-
hearsing and performing a
fully staged musical filled with
historical characters, beautiful
music and a comic twist. They
have worked very hard on
staging, choreography and
characterization. I know audi-
ences will enjoy this classical
biblical tale as told in a high-
energy, fast-paced musical
format."
According to Wages, the
Venice Theatre/ECS partner-
ship has proven to be success-
ful, artistically and in the daily
lives of the students.
"I have watched their abili-
ty to develop both sides of the
brain. They are thinking out-

side of the box, finding their own voice
and experiencing higher levels of self-
confidence and assurance," he said.
"To me, seeing their self-confidence is
what makes the program and the arts
invaluable. The students also learn the
value of commitment and the impor-
tance of working as a group for a larger
goal."
The multidisciplinary program
designed by Venice Theatre and Epiph-
any is structured to satisfy students of
all ability levels who share a love for
the performing arts. The discipline of a
performing arts program provides ef-
fective techniques and skills that carry
over to students' social and academic
development.
Sandy Davisson, Venice Theatre's
director of outreach and education,
said, "Our ECS collaboration is one of
the most important types of program-
ming that Venice Theatre does. We
reach out into the community to bring
the theater arts to sectors that other-
wise may not have them available."
Irene Lynch, principal of ECS, said,
"ECS looks at the whole child. We fo-
cus not only on academics, but on
character and spiritual development.
The arts are such an important venue
for children to learn creativity, expres-
sion, public speaking skills and self-
confidence. The partnership withVen-


ice Theatre helps our children develop
skills that cannot be learned in their
other studies."

Women experience Ribbons and Roses
r I ---


FRAN VALENCIC
SOCIAL COLUMNIST

Nancy Gorski, Jan Henry
and Betty Beuter could
write a how-to book on
putting on a spectacular
fashion show and luncheon.
Each year they outdo them-
selves selling one out and
providing more than 60 raf-
fle prizes. The words, "It's
the economy" are not part
of their vocabulary. Bravo to
area businesses for their
support.
Along with committee
members Joan Bizek,
Connie Cahill, Mary Ann
Cerasoli, Pat Coelho, Diane
Hage, Phyllis Joseph, Mary
Poker, Josephine Reynolds,
Carol Warren and Mary Ann
Boyd, the chairs prove that a
good product at a fair price


brings repeat fun.
Models Diane Armstrong,
Mary Ann Cerasoli, Ruth
Flynn, Grace Mariani,
Glory McAneny and Kathy
Yaglenski strolled among
the ribbon-and-rose-cov-
ered tables and guests show-
ing off casual clothing from
Lisa's Classic Rose on Venice
Avenue.
The ladies gave a salute to
DaveWarren for creating col-
orful ribbon-and-roses name
tags, table cards and pro-
grams. The team at Jacaranda
West Country Club complet-
ed a perfect afternoon.
Grab your coat
And get your hat. Just
direct your feet to the sunny
side of Venice Avenue at
Centennial Park on Sunday,
March 28, at 1:30 p.m. for a
free Foxfire Trio Concert fea-
turing folk music of the '60s.
This is a BYOC event -
remember to bring your own
chair. Visit www.foxruntrio.
corn
Hear ye
Judie Bauer, chair and
founding member of the
Friends of the Lord-Higel
House, created a PowerPoint
presentation and would like


to speak to your group about
Florida history and the Lord-
Higel House. She is one of the
local mini experts on Venice.

net.
One of our best
The special person of this
week is Jan Henry. This nice
lady serves on the committee
for the Our Lady of Lourdes
fashion show each year. She
also serves in other capaci-
ties with the Catholic Council
of Women. She gets a huge
badge of courage, too. While
volunteering this year, She
overcame a medical crisis
and rehab. With the support
of friends and her determi-
nation, she never skipped a
beat.
At the fashion show,
friends gave her flowers and
a nice round of applause.
There were tears. Mostly
there was love for a girlfriend
who chose to celebrate life
even when the road became
bumpy.
Jan Henry is one of the
courageous women who
make Venice a great place to
live.

ON THE ROOF'


The Renaissance Festival includes full
contact armored jousting tournaments, live
shows, entertainment, life-size human
chess matches, sword fighting, fire breath-
ing and a magical children's realm.


AROUND TOWN


Treasure hunters will find plenty at Pine Island.
Today's treasures may not be the same as those
discovered by Brewster Baker, a pirate of the
1700s but they may be more colorful. Mostly
found in the colorful shops lining the streets of
Matlacha, they also include flora and fauna for
sale at island nurseries and treats for the tummy
at local restaurants.

Have you pet a sting ray lately?

Back from a vacation that included a stop at the
Canary Islands, I was happy to learn that Mote
Marine Laboratory was recognized by the
Florida House March 10 as "powerhouse of near-
shore marine research."
Sea turtles are the connection between Mote and
the Canary Islands. Area hatchlings find their way to
the vicinity of the Canary Islands where they spend
their early years before returning to this area when
time to mate.
Celebrating its 55th anniversary, Mote's 200 staff
members and 1,300 volunteers have made a positive
difference for sea turtles but also for other sea crea-
tures and coastal ecology.
In addition to operating a hospital for sick and
injured sea turtles, Mote cares for and does research
on dolphins and sharks, studies red tide, reefs, coastal
ecology, operates a major aquarium and offers a
variety of educational programs, some in conjunction
with Florida universities. Mote also has labs in Char-
lotte Harbor and the Florida Keys.
Mote has come a long way since it was started by
Dr. Eugenie Clark back in 1955, because of her
interest in sharks. Today some 350,000 annual visitors
enjoy her legacy.
Mote's resident sea creatures including several
sharks await your visit.

Big plans for Big Read


BY PAMELA STAIK
STAFF WRITER
The next month and a half will be
a thrilling one as the county's
Big Read program kicks into
high gear.
Big Read is a national literary
initiative designed to boost reading by
inspiring reluctant readers to crack
open a book and get involved as a
community.
Locally, the event is being put on by
seven community partners: the Char-
lotte County Library System, Charlotte
County Public Schools, the Arts and
Humanities Council of Charlotte
County, the Charlotte Players, the
Cultural Center of Charlotte County,
Florida Gulf Coast University and the
Peace River Center for Writers at
Edison State College.
The month-long program begins at
11 a.m. on March 20 when famed
author Stephen King takes the stage
at the Cultural Center's theater. King is
known for writing a plethora of short
stories and novels, including "Carrie,"
"The Shining," "Firestarter," "Misery,"
"The Green Mile," and his latest
release, "Under the Dome."
Like all the Big Read events, King's
appearance is free to the public.
However, people interested in the
400 seats made available to the public
were asked to submit a request for
tickets through an online form by Feb.
19. On Feb. 23, Big Read organizers
conducted a lottery drawing to slice
the nearly 4,800 ticket requests down
to 400. Three days later, the lottery
winners received notification via e-mail
that they had been randomly selected
to see King live at the event.
While only a fraction of Southwest
Florida residents have the opportunity
to sit in the audience on March 20,
everyone can partake in the 25 other
Big Read events scheduled through
April 30.


All of the events fit into the county's
Big Read theme, which is centered
around Edgar Allan Poe.
According to Angie Patteson,
manager of Charlotte's libraries, Big
Read organizers were asked to pick
an author or a title as the theme after
being approved for a $10,000 national
grant.
Poe, an American literary figure
known for penning mysteries and
macabre stories, seemed to be a
perfect fit for the community, Patteson
said.
"Poe is fun," she said, adding that
his writings are popular among all
ages, including hard-to-reach
teenagers. "The Big Read is meant to
bring communities together, so Poe
fits."
Through April 30, the public can
attend a total of 25 free events, which
include a lineup of coffee house
meetings, writing workshops, book
discussions, film screenings and
dramatic readings.
"We tried to provide a variety of
events that appeals to a lot of different
people," Patteson said. "Some people
may want to read Poe's works in more
of a workshop environment, some may
want to watch it on a screen and some
may want to be inspired to write their
own stuff."
Naturally, the March 20 event
starring King is meant as a kickoff for
the program.
Other highlights of that week include
a Poe book discussion at 1 p.m. on
March 22 at Edison State College
Charlotte Campus' Lifelong Learning
Institute and a film event at 6 p.m. on
March 23 of "The Fall of the House of
Usher" at the Lemon Bay Performing
Arts Center.
James Abraham, of Book-Broker
Publishers of Florida, will discuss "Poe
and Baltimore" at the Mid-County
Regional Library in Port Charlotte on


E/N/C/V March 17 23, 2010


March 24. During this event, which
begins at 6:30 p.m., a limited amount
of autographed versions of King's
"Under the Dome" will be available for
purchase.
Of course, this is just a few of the
events going on during the Big Read.
A complete list can be viewed in the
Sun or online at www.sunnewspa-
pers.net.
Aside from posing not cost to
participants, people can stop by any
of the County's libraries to pickup a
free copy of an anthology containing
some of Poe's short stories and
poems while supplies last. Reading
and audio guides to Poe's writings
will also be available.
Students have also been treated to
a few freebies. At the beginning of
the year, each school received
reading kits containing several of
Poe's stories and, in November, the
district's Showbiz Kids series includ-
ed "Nightfall with Edgar Allan Poe,"
which was performed by Eckerd
Theater.

Charlotte Harbor Event and Confer-
ence Center present the third show
in the Harborview Performing Arts Series
- Outlaw Country Jamboree on Friday at

boneless chicken breast with all the fixin's,
salad, cornbread, assorted desserts,
coffee and tea, then kick back for some
top-flight country music.
Terry McKinney was born in Spruce
Pine, N.C., where he began his music
career some 40 years ago. When he was
19, he was invited to play on stage with
Lulu Belle and Scotty Wiseman, a local
duo who became regulars at the Grand
Olde Opry.
Following hitch in the Army, he returned
to North Carolina and picked up where he
left off as a local country, gospel and
bluegrass legend.
Included among his CD's is Altapass All-
Stars in Full Bloom, a compilation of
Appalachian country, blues, gospel and
jazz that also features Judy Alexander.

country fans
have taken a
liking to Ed Loder, TLP co-producer who
doubles as a country singer. A longtime
technician and sound man par excel-
lence, he only began seriously singing
since marrying Valerie Sneade. His
one-man show has drawn rave reviews,
and his teaming with his wife in "Married
in a Fever"- a tribute to Johnny Cash
and June Carter Cash is a TLP
favorite.

The City of Miami

Gardens 5th Annual

'Jazz in the Gardens'


PROVIDED BY THE CITY OF
MIAMI GARDENS
our of the most talented local
artists join the star-studded line-
up of the 5th Annual "Jazz in the
Gardens" Hosted by Tom Joyner taking
place at Sun Life Stadium on March
20 and March 21. Local artists Rachel
Brown, Jovie, Kawan DeBose and Jon
Saxx will be joining headliners Mary J.
Blige, Robin Thicke, John Legend,
Teena Marie, Boyz II Men, Cassandra
Wilson, David Sanborn, Joe Sample,
Melanie Fiona and K'Jon.
Each year Jazz in the Gardens is
proud to give emerging and local
artists an opportunity to share the
stage with A-List performers in an
effort to celebrate up and coming
talent that show incredible promise on
the way to their own stardom. Miami
Gardens Mayor Shirley Gibson
comments, "Jazz in the Gardens is
committed to showcasing up and
coming talent and local artists. We
know that the 'next big thing' in music
is just a performance away and we
hope that Jazz in the Gardens will be
that opportunity."
About the Artists
In an era where most singers are
"auto-tuned," manufactured and
packaged for entertainment value,
Rachel Brown brings the total package
to the table; a powerful, yet sophisti-
cated blend of beauty and exceptional
natural vocal talent. A mainstay in the
South Florida entertainment market for

nearly a decade, Brown is now
developing a national following,
playing venues across the U.S. in
cities such as New York, Chicago, St.
Louis and Dallas. Brown has also
been featured at SXSW (Austin), The
Black Women's Expo (Chicago), as
well as opening for artists such as
Mario, Tank Noel Gourdin, Chico
Debarge, Confunkshun, and 2009
"Jazz in the Gardens" headliners,
Frankie Beverly & Maze.
South Florida's newest singer/song-
writer, Jovie, has her hometown of
Miami in awe, as she continues to
move forward on her musical path.
Jovie's metaphorical use of words
have caused many to say that she
captures the lyrical essence of a rap
artist, but Jovie's style is all her own.
While most artists record music
written by hired songwriters, Jovie
boasts what the industry describes as
the "full package." In 2009, Jovie
began performing at many of Miami's
underground open mic nights, where
mostly, she was the only R&B female
performer. Her music now receives
regular radio play and she was
recently the opening act for T-Pain
during the 99 Jamz Martin Luther King
Day celebration.
Captivating, riveting and inspiring
are usually words used to describe the
dynamic talents of singer/songwriter,
Kawan DeBose. Having been com-
pared to the likes of legendary artists

"Jazz in the Gardens" headliner, John
Legend, Kawan has evolved into a 23-
year-old musical prodigy that has
electrified international music audi-
ences. Having headlined countless
universities, notable clubs and festi-
vals, DeBose has become an "in
demand" performer. He has shared the
stage with artists such as Eric Benet,
Sommore and the legendary, Patti
Labelle.
Jon Saxx was sleeping when the
sound of a saxophone hit his preteen
ears. The tones resonated in his soul,
he awakened, and in that moment he
fell in love. Since his discovery of the
saxophone and jazz music, Saxx was,
in 2008, voted Best Local Jazz Artist
in South Florida by the Miami New
Times, performed at the 2010 Jamaica
Jazz & Blues Festival and participated
in the Monthly National Anthem
Performances for the NBA's Miami
Heat. He has also shared the stage

Art in the Gilded Age at Ringling


FLORIDA ROAD TRIP


FROM THE JOHN AND MABLE RINGLING
MUSEUM OF ART
any discoveries surround the
more than 300 objects John
Ringling purchased in 1927 from
Alva Vanderbilt Belmont's Gothic Room in
Marble House at Newport, Rhode Island.
These discoveries will be explored in The
John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art's
newest exhibition Gothic Art in the Gilded
Age: Medieval and Renaissance Trea-
sures in the Gavet-Vanderbilt-Ringling
Collection, on view through April 4.
The exhibition considers the develop-
ment of the collecting and display of
medieval and early Renaissance art in the
United States during the Gilded Age a
term coined to describe the ostentatious
wealth accumulated by America between
1870 and World War I using the
collection at the core of the Ringling
Museum's medieval and early Renais-
sance holdings. Comprising nearly 340
paintings, sculptures, and works of
decorative art including metalwork,
furniture, and ceramics made across
Europe chiefly between 1100 and 1550,


this group of objects belonged to three
successive owners: the urbane collector-
dealer Emile Gavet (1830?-1904),
socialite Alva Vanderbilt Belmont
(1853-1933), and circus impresario John
Ringling (1866-1936).
Each collector displayed the works of
art differently. Gavet and Vanderbilt
created interiors which romantically
conjured an imaginary past: Gavet's
gallery evoked French Renaissance
collector's cabinets, while Alva Vanderbilt
constructed a medieval French setting for
the works of art. Ringling used some
pieces to enrich the interior of his man-
sion, and others to expand his museum's
collection of European paintings and
sculpture.
General Admission includes the
Ringling Museum of Art, special exhibi-
tions, Ca d'Zan Mansion, Circus Museum,
Mable's historic Rose Garden and
Florida's only rose test gardens. Adults
are $25; senior citizens (65 and over) are
$20; children ages 6-17 are $6. The
museum is at 5401 Bay Shore Road,
Sarasota. Call 941-359-5700.

FEATURES EDITOR
Treasure hunters will find
plenty at Pine Island. Today's
treasures may not be the
same as those discovered by
Brewster Baker, a pirate of the
1700s but they may be more
colorful. Mostly found in the colorful
shops lining the streets of Matlacha,
they also include flora and fauna for
sale at island nurseries and treats
for the tummy at local restaurants.
Shop exteriors are painted with
polka dots and stripes in tropical
hues. Inside, most shops are just as
colorful but the colors decorate the
merchandise, which includes hand-
painted coconuts, ready to mail. No
envelope is needed.
Running through April 2010, Pine
Island's Creative Coast Weekends
bring the fishing village and artist
enclave of Matlacha alive with all
things art. On the second weekend
of each month, special events,
gallery openings, classes and
entertainment welcome the entire
family.
Driving along the road to Pine


Island one cannot help but see what
seems to be miles of beautiful
palms and other tropical plants.
Many are for sale at the island's
nurseries. You may want to line
the car trunk with plastic in case
you want to bring home a tree or
other plant.
The second weekend of each
month during 2010, island mer-
chants plan special events such as
gallery openings, classes and
entertainment.
History buffs might enjoy walking
the well-marked Calusa Heritage
Trail at the Randall Research
Center. A large midden or shell
mound edges the trail. It is a
remnant of a Calusa Indian village
which was there some 1,500 years
ago.
Across the road from the trail,
enjoy Sunday brunch, lunch or
dinner, at Tarpon Lodge, 13771
Waterfront Drive. Call 239-283-3999
or visit www.tarponlodge.com for
reservations. For island information,

The Players presents 'Fiddler n the Roof'


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Teyve, everyone's favorite
philosopher and milkman, will
be weaving his magic spells
March 18-28 in The Players produc-
tion of "Fiddler on the Roof."
Written by Joseph Stein, "Fiddler"
played on Broadway nearly 10 years,
won nine of the 10 Tony Awards for
which it was nominated, was made
into a film and continues to be one of
the most popular musicals.


Teyve and his family live a life as
"precarious as that of a fiddler on a
roof." Problems mount as politics
rears its ugly head in their tiny village
of Anatevka in the cold north yet love
and family manage to survive even
the worst problems and upheavals.
Against this bleak story, Teyve sings
such wonderful songs as "If I Were a
Rich Man," "To Life," "Sunrise, Sun-
set," "Do You Love Me" and "Caveleh
(Little Bird)." Leonard Rubenstein
plays Teyve, with Nancy Apatow as


Cut! Costume and the Cinema continues at FIM


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
he cut of the cloth can be as
important to a major film as the
cutting of the film itself.
For proof, visit the Florida International
Museum's latest show, "Cut! Costume and
the Cinema."
The show which features 43 period
costumes from such films as "Pirates of
the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black
Pearl," is the result of a collaborative effort
of the college and Exhibits Development
Group (EDG) and Cosprop, Ltd.,
London, England.
Disney fans may be interested in the
"Pirates" outfit worn by Johnny Depp in his
role as Captain Jack Sparrow. The
costumes are from 25 films and represent
more than 30 actors and 500 years of
history.
Costumes such as the ones included in
this show, are the result of extensive
research to insure historic authenticity.
Construction, lavish fabrics and details


appropriate to the look are part of the
package. Costumes used in film must
withstand the rigors of retakes, and, in the
case of a character such as Captain Jack
Sparrow, costumes must also be able to
survive the wear and tear imposed by the
actions of those characters. Details also
are important as these costumes are seen
on the big screen, which magnifies
mistakes in stitching or finishing.
Other costumes include the one worn
by Natasha Richardson as Countess
Sophia Belinskaya in "The White Count-
ess" and Heath Ledger as Giacomo
Casanova in "Casanova."
"Cut!" continues through May 16. The
museum, part of St. Petersburg College, is
at 244 Second Avenue North, St. Peters-
burg, FL 33701. It is open from 10 a.m. to
5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and on
Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. Admission is
$12 per person for adults, $10 for seniors
and members of the military and $5 for
students 7 and older. For group discounts,
call 727-341-7918.

CA


BY SHARE DERRICKSON
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Jessica Colone looks like the girl
next door adoring smile,
freckles, bright eyes, and a
bubbly personality. Her charm may be
what had customers follow her from
working at a former pub to Danny's
Deep Creek Pub two years ago.
As she chit chats with customers,
she was always moving making sure
everyone was attended to. The
Pennsylvania native is adept at this as
she has three children, two boys aged
three and four, and a two-year-old
daughter.
Her multi-tasking skills as a mother
help her be a better bartender in
many areas. "I am good at reading
people, which is huge. I get along with
most everybody and I am always
upbeat. I love customer service. I hope
when someone leaves, they leave in a


good mood. That's what I strive to do."
"I really just picked it up. I worked at
restaurant in Virginia for a year and
picked up the serving and then moved
on to bartending," she said. "I am good
at it."
She is now the front of the house
manager at the pub. "Coming here
was a step up from what I was doing
- and it is very diverse. That's what I
really like about it. You get your
snowbirds, your younger crowd and
your in-betweens.
The hardest part of her job she said
- "Keeping everybody satisfied. But
when they are happy, I am happy."
"I like to have fun with what I do.
That is how it should be."
Danny's Deep Creek Pub is
located at 24901 Sandhill Blvd. Unit
14, Punta Gorda.

SUN CORRESPONDENT
t's exposed beams and old time
charm may make it seem like it's
been here for a long time, but the
Fishery restaurant has only been in
Placida since 1988.
And for 22 years, The Fishery, on
Fishery Road on the circle, has been
the place to go for some of the best
seafood in Southwest Florida.
Gary Albritton, owner of The Fishery,
has made The Fishery a success by
keeping things simple and by offering
his guests a unique experience that
goes beyond what's on the menu.
"They're simple preparations that my
family approved. My mother is one of
the testers," Albritton said. "We sample
all the time, but most items have been
here since Day One."

The property, which includes a fish
market and art galleries, has been
part of the Albritton family for almost
70 years.
Albritton's grandfather bought up the
property in the 1940s and started a
fish company, where it handled
millions of pounds of fish a year for
independent fishermen for many
years.
In 1988, the restaurant was started
in conjunction with the fish company,
which closed about 10 years ago.
"We followed the footprint of the
loading dock for trains when fish was
shipped that way," Albritton said. "It
was built in 1988, but it looks like it's
been here a long time."
The breathtaking view of Gasparilla

the food.

Spring arrives
PROVIDED BY THE ENGLEWOOD
AREA ORCHID SOCIETY
Have you ever wanted to live in
an area where orchids grew in
the trees and hung outside
year around? You can do that right
here in tropical Englewood.
The growing climate is so perfect in
our area, that many professional
growers live within 100 miles of
Englewood.
If you haven't experienced seeing
hundreds and hundreds of orchids on
display in one area, you should find
the time to visit the Englewood Area
Orchid Society's annual Orchid
Show March 19 20.
The Society has invited several
other local orchid societies to join
them. These are amateur members
who grow beautiful orchids that they
love to share with others.
Each non-profit society will create
an individual display. The orchid
displays as a whole will be judged on
the quality and variety of the flowers
in the exhibit, and the overall arrange-
ment and presentation of the exhibit,
and then each individual orchid will be
judged, and the best of the best of all
of the amateur's orchids will receive
ribbons. The theme for this year's
show is "Orchids-Gems of the
World."
Some of the professional growers
will also have displays, and they too


in Englewood
will be judged as a group.
Several professional growers will be
on had with lots of beautiful orchids
for sale. And, they will be happy to
answer your questions on how to grow
your plant, etc.
There will also be a vendor offering
all types of products to help make
growing easy. They will offer such
items as fertilizer, orchid pots, potting
materials, etc.
Admission is $3 per person.
Once you have that favorite orchid,
you might want to join the Englewood
Area Orchid Society. The Society
meets on the second Monday of the
month at the Englewood Christ
Lutheran Church at 700 N. Indiana
Avenue, Englewood.
Both experienced and beginner
members enjoy the meetings.There is
a monthly drawing for orchids that are
given away by the Society.
Each month members bring in their
personal orchids and the Society
members vote on the best orchid. The
meetings usually include either a
speaker, a round table discussion, or
several other events that are of
interest to the members.
The meeting begins at 7 p.m.
For further information, call the
president, Gail Hopper at
941-876-0412 or online at

PROVIDED BY LEMON BAY PLAYHOUSE
The Mousetrap, by Agatha Christie,
opened in the West End of London
in 1952, and has been running
continuously since then. It's running at the
Lemon Bay Playhouse only until March
21. Fortunately for the playhouse, but
unfortunately for those who would like
tickets, it is completely sold out.
The story is about a young couple,
Mollie and Giles Ralston, who have
started up a new hotel in the converted
Monkswell Manor. They are snowed in
together with four guests and an additional
traveler, who ran his car into a snowdrift.
Detective Sergeant Trotter arrives on skis
to inform the group that he believes a
murderer is on his way to the hotel,
following the death of Miss Maureen Lyon
in London. When one of the guests, Mrs
Boyle, is killed, they realize that the
murderer is already there. The suspicion
falls first on Christopher Wren, an erratic
young man who fits the description of
the supposed murderer. However, it
quickly transpires that the killer could
be any one of the guests, or even the

for LBP, cast Tom Athens as Giles Ralston,
Amanda Gworek as Mollie Ralston, Paul
Mullen as Christopher Wren, Lee Hakeem

Boyle, Robert Jeffs as Sergeant Trotter,

playhouse, served as stage manager.
Before their next play opens, Lemon

Showcase performances, featuring
instrumental and vocal jazz and rock, as
well as a set of short plays under the
umbrella of Shorts Aloud. They are also
scheduled to have George Carroll's full
orchestra on their small stage! Brisk ticket
sales for their full production, Enchanted

will also be a sellout.
