City delays ORC response


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


The Venice City Council on
Tuesday agreed to delay for
another few months a re-
sponse to the state's Objec-
tions, Recommendations and
Comments report on the draft
city comprehensive plan.
Tallahassee consultant Lin-
da Shelly, with Fowler White
Boggs law firm, recommended
May 11 as the new target adop-
tion date, saying the city is

already late and there are no
penalties for submitting the
plan even later.
Department of Community


Affairs officials essentially have
said the plan still promotes
urban sprawl.
But Shelly thinks the city is
within grasp of its goal to lower
height and density throughout
the city.
Council spent much of the
morning in a workshop word-
smithing policy language to
make sure developers under-
stand that designating a range
of units per acre in a planning
area does not automatically
mean a property owner is enti-


tled to build the maximum
number of units.
DCA wanted a range with a
maximum density clearly
spelled out. The city wants it un-
derstood developers shouldn't
count on getting the maximum
in any area.
"We wanted to signal to the
Planning Commission that
they don't have to give the
maximum," Mayor Ed Martin
said.
Council considered language
that would trigger tougher stan-

FBI probe targets

$13M in school

whiteboard technology


BY CHRISTINE HAWES
SUN CORRESPONDENT

County schools officials in
at least four departments are
scurrying to gather records
from as far back as 2002 after
receiving federal subpoenas
relating to former Superin-
tendent Gary Norris, former
chief information officer Bob
Hanson and the district's pur-
chase of more than $13 million
in interactive whiteboard tech-
nology.
The Federal Bureau of In-
vestigation delivered the de-
mand for records to Sarasota
school officials Tuesday, said
school district attorney Art
Hardy. That same day, the
Waterloo, Iowa, school district
that Norris now leads also
received subpoenas seeking


the same information, Norris
wrote in a letter Wednesday to
Waterloo School Board mem-
bers.
The subpoenas, issued by
FBI Special Agent Leo Martin-
ez in Sarasota, ask for all com-
munications from Norris relat-
ing to the whiteboard technol-
ogy purchases; all communi-
cations, income records, travel
expenses, gifts and donations
to Hanson and his wife, Lora;
and all communications relat-
ed to Promethean, the interna-
tional company from which
both the Sarasota and Wat-
erloo school districts pur-
chased the technology.

Libraries may lose state funding


BY JOSH SALMAN
STAFF WRITER


Appropriations committees
in the Florida House and
Senate adopted preliminary
positions this month to elimi-
nate all state funding for the
public library system, which
could mean fewer hours,
reduced services and even clo-
sures at some locations.
Last year, the state set aside
$21.3 million for public library
funding, nearly 7 percent of
the library system's entire
operating budget. If the Leg-
islature drops the grants this
year, many libraries won't sur-
vive the blow, said Faye Rob-
erts, executive director of the
Florida Library Association.


Officials and residents are
now urging lawmakers to
reconsider before the annual
60-day session comes to a
close next month.
"It's still early in the ses-
sion," Roberts said. "Our hope
is that people across the state
let their legislators know how
important libraries are to
them, and they'll look at ways
to restore the funding."
Since 2001, state library aid
has been chopped by more
than one-third, from $33.4
million to $21.3 million last
year.
For some counties, the
grants are a relatively small
part of the overall budget.

City taps $1.2 million from airport fund


Council used $1.24 million from the airport fund to
pay $325,000 in unanticipated legal expenses after
the city fought to keep hangars from being built ...


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Venice City Council voted
Tuesday to adopt mid-year
budget adjustments, adding
$3.37 million to the city bud-
get.
More than $1.9 million in
projects is funded from grants
and special revenues. Another
$1.43 million comes mostly
from the airport fund. Only
$76,459 came from the general
fund balance. The city has had
to rely on the GF fund balance
two previous years.
General fund projects in-
clude transferring $150,000 for
land development regulations
once the comprehensive plan
is adopted.
The Venice Housing Au-
thority will be the beneficiary
of grants to the tune of
$140,000 from entitlement
grants. Other projects funded
include Hazmat decontamina-
tion equipment, and land-
scaping along U.S. 41 Busi-
ness. More than $140,000 goes
to construct the mooring field
and $332,746 from the


American Recovery & Rein-
vestment Act grant goes to pay
for Venice Avenue-Harbor
Drive intersection improve-
ments.
City council used $1.24 mil-
lion from the airport fund to
pay $325,000 in unanticipated
legal expenses after the city
fought to keep hangars from
being built at the Suncoast
Airport Center and on other
legal arguments designed to
keep the airport small.
Marty Kretchman, owner of
the airport center, said previ-
ously he believes it is an illegal
use of funds but stopped short
of directly threatening legal
action.
Mid-year budget adjust-
ments also call for a transfer of
funds to pay for the following
projects: Circus Arena demoli-
tion ($300,000), an Automated
Weather Observation System
($150,000), a survey of airport
properties ($100,000) ordered
by the Federal Aviation Ad-
ministration who audited the
airport and found irregularities
and nonapproved airport-re-
lated leases, and landscaping


at Airport Avenue and Harbor
Drive intersection ($100,000).
In addition, $85,986 was trans-
ferred to pay for the contract
renewal with DY Consultants
and the change in scope of
work; $85,000 was transferred
to pay for the recent emer-
gency repairs on Runway 22
and $13,400 for airfield mark-
ings, signage and fencing.
A FEMA grant in the
amount of $768,021 will go
toward U.S. 41 and Venice
Avenue stormwater improve-
ments.
In other news, council
approved a bonus of 2.7 per-
cent of base pay for nonbar-
gaining city employees who
earn $67,000 or less. The one-
time payments will cost the
city $42,525. The bonuses
range from $1,030 to $1,785.
Council also authorized
staff to complete a grant appli-
cation for $200,000 to pay for
an emergency generator at
Venice Community Center.
Another grant application,
from the Community Devel-
opment Block Disaster Fund,
could bring the city $150,000
to pay for theVenice Municipal
Home Park drainage pipe re-
placement project.

Area reactions vary on health-care package


BY STEVE REILLY
AND MIKE BILLINGTON
STAFF WRITERS

Area Republicans reacted swiftly to
denounce the health-care reform bill
passed Sunday by the House of
Representatives while many church
leaders reacted with caution, adopting
a wait-and-see attitude.
House Republicans voted unani-
mously against the bill Sunday and
then immediately fired off news releas-
es denouncing it.
"This bill represents all that is
wrong with Washington," Rep. Vern
Buchanan stated in his release.
"Deficit spending, higher taxes, more
government control and an arrogant
dismissal of the will of the American
people. This is why so many people
are fed up with Washington and I
don't blame them."
Out of the 11,000 constituents who
contacted his office about it, Buchanan
estimated 75 percent opposed the
health-care bill. Buchanan, of Longboat
Key, represents Florida's 13th District.
U.S. Rep. Tom Rooney, of the 16th
District, issued a more general critique
of the health care bill.


"I am committed to
ensuring that the most
catastrophic portions of
the bill- such as the indi-
vidual mandate, the crip-
pling cuts to Medicare
and huge tax increases
- are repealed," Rooney Buchanan
stated in an e-mailed
press release. "This government
takeover of the health-care industry is
not the 'reform' the people wanted and
will not lower costs or increase access
to care. My neighbors in Florida and all
Americans deserve better."
U.S. Rep. Connie Mack, of Fort
Myers, was quick to follow suit, declar-
ing in his e-mailed release that,
"Freedom died today, and I fear that the
freedoms of the American people will
continue to fade if President Obama
and the Democrats in Congress contin-
ue to expand the size, scope and con-
trol of the federal government."
Members of Southwest Florida's
religious community were more cir-
cumspect in their comments. While
several members of the clergy and
other church officials declined to
comment, those who did said they
want to see if Obama lives up to his


pledge to issue an executive order to
ban the use of federal funds for elec-
tive abortions.
"He said he would issue that execu-
tive order, but he hasn't signed it yet,"
said Bob Reddy, the assistant commu-
nications director for the 10-county
Diocese ofVenice.
"And even if he does sign it, an exec-
utive order can be rescinded, either by
him or by the next president once he
leaves office," Reddy added.
Left out
The Catholic Church, he said, is also
unhappy that immigrants were exclud-
ed from the final bill.
"And we're still concerned that while
it covers 95 percent of the people, there
is still a percentage of people that are
going to be left out," he said.
The Rev. Ted Land, pastor of the First
Presbyterian Church in Arcadia, said
there are parts of the bill that could
help hospitals and doctors. A former
chair of the DeSoto Memorial Hospital
board of directors, he said his experi-
ence has taught him that the health-
care system needs repair.
"There are lots of folks that are unin-
sured and there are also a lot of folks


who don't pay their hospital or doctor
bills, not because they can't but
because they simply don't," Land said.
As a result, he said, that part of the
bill that forces people to buy health
insurance or face a fine could be a good
thing.
"If, that is, the money that people
pay in fines goes back into the health
care system to reduce the amount of
money lost," he said.
Land said Congress has not, in his
opinion, done enough to protect doc-
tors from malpractice lawsuits and to
boost patient collections, "so that those
of us who have insurance aren't
required to pay higher premiums to
make up for those that don't pay."
U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, the only con-
gressional Democrat representing
Southwest Florida, issued a state-
ment Monday noting that passage of
the health-care reform bill will help
millions of Americans. He especially
likes, he said, the fact that the bill will
prevent insurers from dropping those
who become ill and refusing coverage
to those who have pre-existing condi-
tions.

Cash for clunkers rebates move to appliances next month


BY JOSH SALMAN
STAFF WRITER


Retailers across Southwest
Florida are readying for next
month's cash for clunkers
appliance rebate program, and
hoping it mimics the success
of its auto-sales counterpart.
The federal government
will offer 20 percent rebates
on new energy-efficient appli-
ances purchased between
April 16 and 25. The program
has already drummed up so
much buzz, the government
has crafted a first-come, first-
served reservation system for
consumers interested in a
share of the state's $17.6 mil-
lion federal allocation, accord-
ing to the Florida Energy and
Climate Commission.
Area retailers hope the pro-
gram lives up to its anticipated
stimulus and provides a jump-
start to the recession-battered
industry.
"We anticipate a big ramp-up
in sales," said Greg Parkinson,

A federal program will offer 20
percent rebates next month on
energy-efficient appliances such
as refrigerators to consumers
who act quickly enough to get
reservations.

sales manager at Best Buy.
"The government's throwing
some great savings out there.


(The program) really sells
itself, but we'll do our part and
have some additional offers."
Larger chain retailers, like
Best Buy, are expected to throw
in added discounts as they vie
for the quick rush in sales.
Parkinson declined to specu-
late on any potential deals
other than delivery and instal-
lation for $29.99.
Skip Gircsis, owner of
Action Appliance, said some
manufacturers also will be
adding bonus rebates up to
$1,000 that week. He plans to
sell appliances at contractor
pricing, he said.
"The manufacturers are
hinting at some big rebates,"
Gircsis said. "It's stirring up a
lot of interest, and we will be
ready for it."
Unlike the cash-for-clunker
auto sales program, old appli-
ances will not have to be
brought in for trade.
Reservations
Several retailers said near-


ly a quarter of the customers
shopping for appliances
recently plan to return April
16 for the rebate. But it won't
be that easy.
Consumers will be required
to secure a reservation to let
shoppers know in advance
whether they will become one
of the anticipated 66,000 who
qualify.
The details are still being
finalized, and the reservation
forms are expected to become
available either later this
month or in early April.
"We know from the states
that have done this already
that we will run out of money
immediately," said Kevin
Price, appliance sales manag-
er at Sears in Englewood.
"Everyone's trying to save a
buck, so promotions like this
are huge. But if people don't
fill out these (reservations)
immediately, they won't get
the rebate."
Price said the big downside
is many of the area's seasonal


residents will be returning
home before they can take
advantage of the rebate. So
instead of buying, they're hold-
ing off.
Still, he believes the govern-
ment special will provide a
surge in quarterly revenues.
Appliances covered through
the rebate program include
refrigerators, freezers, dish-
washers, washing machines
and air conditioners. The
rebates are capped at $1,500
per household, according to
the Florida Energy and
Climate Commission.
"We've had a tremendous
amount of customers ask
about it, and we just hope it
works out for everyone," said
Tom Jessup, president of
Jessup's Appliances, which has
stores in Venice, Sarasota and
Bradenton. "There's pent-up
buyer power out there from all
this, but there's still a lot of
questions."

Garden will memorialize late teacher SARASOTA COUNTY BRIEFS


BY CHRISTINE HAWES
SUN CORRESPONDENT


When Island Village Montessori
teacher Leanne McSmythe was battling
bone cancer, the Venice school's staff,
parents and students bonded to pro-
vide her moral and financial support.
Even though it's now been more
than a year since McSmythe passed
away, she is inspiring unity at Island
Village once more: A memory garden,
designed by a teacher and created by
students, is being installed on the
school grounds in her memory.
"This will really tie the school togeth-
er for endless time," said Bob Cloutier, a
teacher who is leading a group of sev-
enth-graders in constructing the man-
dala-shaped garden.
The garden will replace a similar
spot the school built several years ago
in honor of students' parents who had
passed away or died in car crashes.
Once adorned with bricks bearing the
names of the departed, the original gar-
den had to be torn up to make room for
expanded buildings.
The new garden, while inspired by
McSmythe, will reinstate that "special
place" for children to honor loves ones
who have passed on.
McSmythe, who became a teacher at
Island Village after her children began
attending the school, was the instructor
that Executive Director Kym Elder turn-
ed to when "challenging" youngsters
needed some extra support.
"She just knew how to have that kind
of loving, 'the buck stops here' kind of
interaction with a student in such a
nurturing, kind way," Elder said. "She
was able to help kids with a tough love
approach, and I always relied on her for
those children that people were getting
frustrated about."
"She had the patience of a saint,"
said teacher Stephanie Welch, who also
grew to be one of McSmythe's closest
friends.
"She just really understood children,


that all children are different. She
would always treat every child with
what they needed, and was so fair and
loving."
Sense of unity
McSmythe's pivotal role in reaching
out to troubled youngsters, and her
constantly upbeat approach to teach-
ing, left the entire school devastated
when she was diagnosed with bone
cancer early in the 2008-09 school year,
Elder said. Word of her illness triggered
a schoolwide movement of support
that included donated sick days and a
series of fundraisers, including a ziti
dinner that students cooked and
prepped, and parents and staff volun-
teered for.
"I didn't have to call people to ask for
help, because people were calling us at
all times to help out," said Welch, who
organized the event. "The phone was
ringing off the hook for about two
weeks."
Within six weeks of her diagnosis,
McSmythe had succumbed to the dis-
ease. But her brief and unexpected
medical battle had helped remind the
school of its sense of unity.
"I've always felt really strongly about
our school that it's a special place, like a
little family," Welch said. "When this
happened last year, I think everyone
realized that what we have is really spe-
cial. Everyone pulled together in a time
of need and crisis."
Elder said she is looking forward to
once again providing children a quiet
spot where they can work out their feel-
ings, or just have some time to them-
selves. She remembers seeing kids of all
kinds, even those who had not lost any-
one, spend time in the old memory gar-
den when they just needed a break.
"The garden was something that the
kids really liked," Elder said. "It satisfied
a certain need. I think it will just be nice
to have an acknowledgment of grief in a
way that's positive. It's just a special
place to go."

WORDS WORTH
HEARING




9 a


I recently purchased
two hearing aids that fit
inside the ears. When I
didn't wear hearing
aids, everything
sounded too soft. Now
when I am using my
hearing aids, everything
sounds too loud. What
should I do?

One of the biggest shocks
people experience when
wearing hearing aids is
how loud everyday
sounds now seem. This is
because people with
sensorineural hearing
loss often suffer from
recruitment. Recruitment
is the perception that
sounds increase in
volume faster that they
really do. It is the result
of a reduced dynamic
range of hearing which is
that area between the
softest sound you can
hear and the loudest
sound you can stand.
People with normal
hearing have a dynamic
range of 100 120 dB.
People with hearing loss
have a restricted dynamic
range which can be as
small as 20dB. A
properly programmed
hearing aid will
adequately amplify the
soft sounds while limiting
the amount of
amplification given to
louder sounds. Your
hearing aids may be
reprogrammed to
accommodate your
dynamic range more
precisely. The best way to
insure this measure is
done correctly is with the
use of REM or Real Ear
Measurement. Before you
give up on your hearing
aids, call the Audiologists
at Woodmere Hearing
and Balance Centers, Inc.
at (941) 4924327 to learn
more about REM and to
find out if your hearing
aids are properly
programmed for your
dynamic range of hearing.

ago, she saw the cyclists
and followed them. She
saw the boy in the sur-
veillance photo, and
when he walked over to
her truck she took a
photo of him with her
phone's camera. When
she told the group the
police were on the way,
they scattered.
Now, VPD reports that
copies of that photo
have been given to
North Port and Venice
school resource officers,
Crime Stoppers and area
law enforcement agen-
cies.
"We're hoping some-
one will be able to iden-
tify this young man,"
said VPD Detective Sgt.

Perisho said the
cyclist faces a charge of
criminal mischief, which
can be either a misde-
meanor or a felony
depending on the extent
of the damage to Duffy's
building.

The computer also

His wife retaliated by

He received no bond.

him. The
server
could see
Perry
walking
around Perry

er knocked several
times, Perry did not
answer the door.
Next, the server
noticed Perry coming
from the side of the
house. When the server
told Perry what he was
there for, Perry became
irate and started yelling
at the server that he was
not allowed on the prop-
erty.
The server ignored
Perry and began filling
out the service informa-
tion on the paperwork.
Perry told the server to
look at him and when he
did, he saw Perry hold-
ing a handgun in his
right hand.
He did not point the
gun at the server, but he
did have a warning for
him.
"You see this?" he
said, referring to the gun.
"If you come on my
property again, I will
shoot you."
The server finished
filling out the paper-
work, handed the papers
to Perry and left.
Perry, 51, was arrested
and charged with
improper exhibition of a

Kodras open Trader



Vic's in Sarasota


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

The Kodra family, owners of
Rosebuds Restaurant in Os-
prey, has opened the first of a
new restaurant concept, Trad-
er Vic's Island Bar & Grill, 351
North Cattlemen Road, Sara-
sota.
"It has already been so suc-
cessful the company is open-
ing four more in Ohio," said
Bill Kodra.
Operated by Trader Vic's, it
is managed and controlled by
co-owners Mike Kodra and his
sons, Rick and Bill, who ac-
quired the franchise for Sara-
sota.
"We have no intention of
opening this franchise in
Venice," said Bill Kodra. "We
don't want more than two."
It differs from the tradition-


al Trader Vic's with its tropical
decor and menu reminiscent
of being on vacation in Hawaii.
Classic American casual din-
ing food is made fresh by their
chef. Hand-rolled sushi to
order is one of the specialties
on the menu, which include
pastas, steaks, seafood, ham-
burgers and chicken wings.
Eighty employees serve 270
diners from three bars, includ-
ing the outside deck bar.
Trader Vic's has weekend
entertainment and a Sunday
brunch.
Mike Kodra began his rest-
aurant career in Chicago in
1965. Moving to Osprey in
1995, he opened Rosebuds,
2215 South Tamiami Trail,
Osprey, with Bill and Rick.
They employ 65 people includ-
ing family.

Venice Regional plans North Port facility


BY ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER


Venice Regional Medical Center will
open a multi-physician specialty office
and walk-in clinic in North Port, a hos-
pital official announced Thursday.
Speaking during a meeting of the
North Port Business and Economic
Development Advisory Board, VRMC
chief operating officer Darcey O'Brien
said the hospital and Gulf Coast
Medical Group are opening a facility at
14575 Tamiami Trail, between Lowe's
and the Olde World Restaurant.
Specialist physicians from VRMC
will rotate through half of the 4,500-
square-foot facility. The other half will
contain an urgent-care, walk-in clinic.
The facility will create three to five
new jobs, in addition to the current
physicians and staff members who will
split time between Venice and North
Port, O'Brien said.
A grand opening is planned for the


end of April. Specialists will start work-
ing there during late April and May,
based on their availability.
BEDAB members and city staff were
excited about the news.
"I think it's a major win that is cause
for celebration," North Port Economic
Development Manager Allan Lane said.
The facility will not compete for the
same patients as Sarasota Memorial
Hospital's 24-hour emergency room off
Toledo Blade Boulevard, O'Brien said.
"It's a different kind of care," she
said. "It's not for emergency, highly
acute care. It's for anything semi-
urgent, walk-in, the cough-cold, things
like that. The specialists are there for
any sort of recurring appointments or
any sort of specialist you need."
O'Brien added that the facility will
be ideal for patients who do not cur-
rently have primary-care physicians.
"It's a younger population," she said
of North Port, where the average age is
38. "But a younger population tends to


not have an established primary-care
physician. They don't have a physician
that they call when they are sick or
need a physical. The walk-in, urgent-
care (center) can act as that. It's a good
opening door to people who don't have
a primary-care physician."
Capacity
VRMC is renting the new building
from BEDAB member Zia Butt, who also
owns North Port Pines and Gardens of
North Port, two retirement centers. It
will contain X-ray and lab capabilities.
Among the 15 VRMC physicians
expected to practice in North Port are
four urgent-care physicians, one cardi-
ologist, two gastroenterologists, one
gynecologist, one neurological sur-
geon, one rehabilitation physician, one
pulmonologist and four urologists.
There also will be one family nurse
practitioner for gynecology.
"We have the capacity to grow and
add more specialists as the need in


North Port demands," O'Brien said.
"There's that (added) capacity because
we are offering them (physicians) the
ability to rotate through.
"They have privileges at Venice
Regional Medical Center. They'll be
down here (in North Port) for half a day
a week or half a day every other week,
so that their patients who live in North
Port don't have to travel. It's increasing
their access to the specialists."
While the physician roster does
not include a pediatrician, O'Brien
said, the urgent-care physicians can
treat children.
VRMC's expansion into North Port
could lead to more physicians having
expanded or full-time practices in the
city, O'Brien said.
"That's definitely a place where
North Port can grow, and physicians
can grow in North Port," she said.
Eleven of the 26 BEDAB members
attended the meeting. No votes were
allowed due to lack of a quorum.


SCAT pushing ahead with express bus routes


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER


The creation of two express com-
muter bus routes from North Port to
Sarasota, one with a side trip through
Venice, is closer to reality, the county
commission was told during Friday's
quarterly budget workshop.
The commission also heard of the
planned elimination of Sarasota County
Area Transit Route 26 the Venice
neighborhood bus and an increase in
the time in Route 16 trips, which serve
Venice and Englewood.
The quarterly workshop, a regular
part of the Sarasota County Commis-
sion's budgetary process, included a
discussion on mosquito management
services finances, non-SCAT mobility
issues and updates on the general fund,
libraries and transit.
The general fund update dealt with
property value projections released
March 1 by the state. In January, the
state estimated a property tax decrease
of 14.3 percent for fiscal year 2011; its


latest projection though still a
decrease is only 9.7 percent.
The state continued to project an
increase in property values in FY 2012.
The January estimate was 4.4 percent,
and the March estimate is 1.2 percent.
News of the two express routes first
was announced in August. Anthony
Beckford, SCAT general manager,
said at the time the routes would be
operational by spring. That date has
been pushed back, with a joint partic-
ipation agreement between the coun-
ty and the state Department of
Transportation being prepared some-
time before June 30.
The first express route will start at
Toledo Blade Boulevard, travel north
on Interstate 75 to Bee Ridge Road and
Doctors Hospital, to Sarasota Memorial
Hospital on U.S. 41, and then to the
final stop in downtown Sarasota.
The second express will start at
Sumter Boulevard and head north on
U.S. 41 to the Venice Train Depot. From
Venice, the route could travel on U.S. 41
to SMH and on to the city, or it could pick


up State Road 681, and connect with 1-75
to mirror the other express route.
Not enough
A three-year service grant from FDOT
is being used to establish the express
service. FDOT allocated $450,110 for the
first year, and $615,000 for the second
and third years. SCAT has to provide a 50
percent match, which is expected to
come from its operating funds.
Senior planner Sarah Blanchard
called Route 26 "one of the lower pro-
ductivity" lines, in discussing its elimi-
nation. According to SCAT, that route's
farebox recovery, in relation to its
expense, was only 2 percent from
November 2009 to January 2010.
Changes in Routes 26 and 13 a
Venice route with 4 percent farebox
recovery are expected in June.
Route 16, which had increased the
frequency of runs from two hours to
one hour, will return to the two-hour
frequency. According to SCAT, ridership
did not increase enough to justify the
cost of an extra bus. Instead, half of the
riders only changed the time they used
the service.


In another discussion, commission-
ers who last year postponed discussion
of a shortfall in mosquito control dis-
trict revenues, took up the subject
again. According to Deputy County
Administrator Dave Bullock, the boom
years of 2005 to 2007 accounted for an
excessive reserve that didn't merit con-
tinuing the millage at .0499.
Instead, the commissioners voted to
reduce the millage by 44 percent in
2008 and use the reserve fund for any
shortfall. A mill is $1 in tax for every
$1,000 of a property's taxable value.
With the fund balance expected to
be depleted in FY 2011 if the millage
stays at .0277, Bullock said, the com-
mission has to decide on one of three
choices: take the needed funds from
the economic uncertainty fund; swap
an increase in the mosquito district
millage with a decrease in the general
fund millage that would produce an
equal amount of revenue; or increase
the mosquito district millage.
The county budget must be passed
by the end of the fiscal year, Sept. 30.

OUR VIEW


Sarasota County wants a piece of Google


Even the least computer-savvy
among us has at least heard of
Google, the Internet search
engine and much more that has
changed even the way we speak.
How many companies can claim
that their name has become a verb?
And how many of them were incorpo-
rated less than 12 years ago? It must
be a very short list.
The folks who run Google didn't
get the company to where it is today
by being dumb. If you need proof of
their ingenuity, consider the compa-
ny's search for communities in which
to set up ultra-high-speed networks
that could operate at more than 100
times faster than existing ones.
Google is being coy about exactly
what it's looking for, other than places
that can "demonstrate the power of
ultraband networks and have the
support of the community and local


government," according to the Web
site set up to support the local effort,
www.googleisland.net. Still, once the
call for proposals went out, cities from
Fresno, Calif., to Greensboro, N.C.,
and Duluth, Minn., to Port Charlotte
jumped at the opportunity to host a
network.
The site says that Google's plan is
not to compete with Comcast and
Verizon, but to work with existing
providers, primarily in upgrading
hardware and data centers. That
means jobs, both ones Google would
create in the cities it picks and in busi-
nesses that would be more competi-
tive due to these new networks or that
might be attracted to relocate by
them.
There's never a good time to ignore
a chance to create "clean" jobs; even if
there were, this certainly wouldn't be
one.


The process requires a formal
application from the communities,
submitted by March 26, but commu-
nity support apparently will count for
a lot in the judging.
This being a competition to win
the approval of a high-tech company,
the competitors have pulled out all
the stops tech and otherwise to
be one of the who-knows-how-many
winners.
Social media are being used to
show communities' "active digital
participants," according to a report
on the googleisland Web site. The
study shows Sarasota ranking fifth
behind Grand Rapids, Mich., Duluth,
Topeka, Kans., and Baltimore, Md., in
the number of Facebook fans as of
March 17.
Other local efforts include Sarasota
Mayor Richard Clapp swimming with
sharks; changing the name of City


Island to "Google Island"; and holding
a free concert there Thursday, March
25, 6:30-9 p.m., featuring singer/
songwriter Lindsey Ray and MC Jake
Sasseville (wear "Google Glam," the
Web site urges).
These stunts aside, there is a role
for you, if you like the idea of Google
having a presence in Sarasota County:
Visit www.googleisland.net. From
there you can nominate Sarasota, be-
come a Facebook fan, read the Google
Island Declaration of Independence
from narrowband networks and lend
your support to the recruitment
effort.
Google wasn't even a twinkle in
someone's eye 20 years ago. Its
founders are now multi-billionaires.
What if the next Google is out there
looking for a place in the sun with
ultra-high-speed networks to call
home?


Feeling of a




community


LANG CAPASSO
PUBLISHER


The other day I went on a
bus trip to see "Jersey Boys,"
which was playing at the
Barbara B. Mann Performing
Arts Hall in Fort Myers. On the
bus trip I happened to over-
hear a woman who lives in a
gated community talk about
her homeowners association.
She was talking to a woman
sitting next to her.
"Yes, we can buy the plants
to replace the ones killed in the
freeze but once they are plant-
ed we don't own them any-
more," she said. "We even have
to get permission to prune
them from the association."
I was thinking, I wonder if
she has to get permission to
water them?
I digress. We all think of the
president of the United States
as having the most power in
the world. Sure, he can get us
into a war and bomb some
country we never heard of or
couldn't care less about. He
can even try to put in a health
plan that takes care of every-
one. But who really has the
power over your daily life?
When you think about it,
the county commission has
more power over your daily life
than any senator or congress-
man. Then the real power bro-
kers come into play in your
everyday life city council.
Think about it: On a day-to-
day basis, if you live in the city,
council is your true lord and
master. It can determine how
or where you park, how long a
boat can stay moored even
your hours of operation for a
business.
But there is nothing and I
mean nothing that can


compare with the ultimate
power that a homeowners as-
sociation wields. It can deter-
mine if you can fly the Amer-
ican flag in your front yard,
how long a visiting grandchild
can stay, whether you can have
more than one car at your
home, how many yard decora-
tions you can have, how old
you can be to move in, wheth-
er garage doors must be open
or shut, whether you can have
a real estate sign in your front
yard or a boat by your house
and, as I said, how big your
plants can grow. In some sub-
divisions even the color of
your house is determined for
you.
Now don't get me wrong; I
probably agree with many of
them. You choose an area to
move into and you want to
make sure the area you have
chosen keeps the same stan-
dards that attracted you to it in
the first place. Who likes to ride
through a neighborhood
where houses have four cars
and two trucks parked in the
driveway and yard, or the
house and yard have not been
kept up. Not very many of us.
When you drive through a
gated community if you can
get in the feeling of serenity
and calm is almost overpower-
ing. Let's face it we all want
to live someplace like that. It is
like seeing a Maserati, Ferrari,
Lamborghini, or Bentley in a
parking lot; you just have to
stop and take a look. If you are
close, you might even want to
touch it. That is the feeling one
gets riding through a well-
heeled community.
Of course, you have to real-
ize that the reason all looks so
well is that the homeowners
association is ruling the home-
owners with an iron fist.
Maybe it's me, but I prefer a
deed restricted community
where everyone has certain
standards they are required to
live up to. I am not too sure,
though, if I want them to go so
far as to tell me whether I can
or can't fly an American flag.

DO YOU HAVE A SUGGESTION FOR A LET'EM HAVE IT QUESTION TO POSE TO OUR READERS?


CALL 207-1111.

Back off bridge openings

Every 20. All three bridges should be put on a schedule, as the
older north bridge was every 20 minutes. One boat waiting
does not use as much fuel as the many, many cars waiting on
both sides south way past the traffic light. Remember that rare
thing called common sense?
EDITOR'S NOTE: The Hatchett Creek and Venice Avenue bridges do
operate on schedules. Only the Circus Bridge opens entirely on
demand.


Outside in. Should the city
hire outside counsel to review
the issue of health insurance
benefits? Yes, most certainly.
The city attorneys, Anderson
and Hall, both receive free
benefits, so therefore they have
a vested interest in this matter.
It should go to an outside
attorney.
Not fair. I'm calling about
these three elected officials
who want to do away with the
airport. The airport's been here
since the 1940s, long before
they moved here. They knew
the airport was here; why do
they have to change it? It's not
Venice's airport. The federal
government controls that air-
port. All these three are doing
is costing us money, money,
money. They must print it in
their basement. It's not fair to
the taxpayers and the citizens
ofVenice to think that they can
just get rid of it and change the
zoning. They are wrong. I cer-
tainly hope they do not run for
re-election, and if they do, that
they are defeated. Sue Lang is a
disgrace. I am sorry to say, for a
woman, she is a disgrace.
EDITOR'S NOTE: It is Venice's
airport, subject to federal regula-
tions and restrictions.
Ultimate penalty. A 23-
year-old man made a record-
ing in 2005 of how he planned
to kill two people and rape
one. When he did it recently,
prosecutors sought the death
penalty, but the jury recom-
mended life sentence and the
judge agreed. The two people


Let 'em


Have It


he murdered were his grandfa-
ther and his 42-year-old moth-
er. Then he had sex with her
corpse, took her credit cards
and went to Walmart. He said
he's not sorry. The jury said he
was depressed and maybe did-
n't understand his actions. I
find that hard to believe when
he planned it for so long. If
anyone deserves the death
penalty, this man does. Why
should taxpayers feed, clothe
and house people like this for
possibly 60 or more years? And
it didn't say "no early release,"
which many get. Our prisons
are overcrowded, and they talk
of building more at taxpayers'
expense. When are we going to


realize the best way to help
solve the problem is to use the
death penalty when it is
deserved, such as this one?
Droppings. I have a com-
ment about the Venice Gondo-
lier Sun. I live on Olympia
Road in South Venice and
there's a house that's been va-
cant for every bit of two years.
Actually, it looks like it needs to
be condemned. The delivery
person with the green sheets
for the Venice Gondolier Sun
constantly keeps dropping off
papers. There is a pile two feet
high of newspapers and bags
rotting on the driveway, and
they just keep dropping new
ones. Now, the paper boy can't
be that stupid.
Powerless. Looking down
the street on Olympia, you
know why they're apprehen-
sive of wanting a Habitat for
Humanity house built next
door to them. Sheets, blankets
in the windows, broken win-
dows, garbage all over the yard,
cars up on stilts. It's not fair to
the taxpayers. Code enforce-
ment doesn't seem to do any-
thing. It seems they're some-
what powerless. Habitat -
time to clean up your property.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Habitat doesn't
own the houses it builds the
homeowner does.
Dissed. I happened to be in
a new restaurant when the
manager dismissed one of the
workers in a nasty and abusive
way. It seems they weren't busy.
Seems to me this manager
ought to have a lesson on how
to be respectful to his workers.
Maybe then they might work
just a little harder for him in the
future. A little respect goes a
long way and must start with
our young people.
Every 15. I believe if they
schedule the Circus Bridge
opening every 15 minutes, that
should be very adequate for
the yachts. They should also
include the two northern
bridges.

It's just about
the turtles

Editor:
I would like to make a


few clarifications to the
otherwise excellent arti-
cle by Greg Giles on the
turtle ordinance approv-
ed by the city's Environ-


mental Task Force.
The article states that
the Sarasota County ordi-
nance- after which some
of the proposed ordinance
for Venice is modeled -
"arguably isn't enforce-
able." The Sarasota ordi-
nance has been success-
fully enforced for the past
12 years, with a minimum
of citations issued, and
with dramatically lower
hatchling disorientation
numbers than Venice's.
The article also states
that the proposed ordi-
nance tries to ban sky-
glow; skyglow is not ad-
dressed in the ordinance,
and is a constant that
affects hatchlings emerg-
ing from both the Venice
and the Casey Key nests; it
does not explain why
1,118 out of 6,726 Venice
hatchlings disoriented, as
compared to only 328 out
of 25,813 for Casey Key.
In order for female
turtles to nest and for
hatchlings to emerge
properly, the dune side of
the beach must be darker
than the Gulf.
The ordinance does
not ban lighting only
lighting that illuminates
areas of the beach that
are seaward of the frontal
dune. The focus is on
lighting management,
not lighting elimination;
the purpose is to mini-
mize the trespass of light
from private property
onto public property, and
to make sure that coastal
lighting is turtle-friendly.
On the issue of "di-
rect" vs. "indirect" and
"cumulative" lighting:
Each source, whether
direct, indirect or cumu-
lative, has the potential
for disorienting the sea
turtles and thus needs to
be addressed in the ordi-
nance.

Don't let state weaken voting rights


KINDRA MUNTZ
GUEST COLUMNIST



Not all government
officials are bad. We just
need to be able to sepa-
rate the good guys from
the bad guys. We need to
ask, "Who is on the side
of the people, the average
person, you and me?"
At the federal level, it
may be hard to tell from
slanted cable TV and
radio talk shows. It may
be even harder now that
corporations have free
reign to spend unlimited
funds on attack ads, as a
result of the U.S. Su-
preme Court decision in
the Citizens United case.
That's why Sarasota
Alliance for Fair Elections
is working on media
reform and campaign
finance reform in addi-
tion to election reform.
The documentary "Broad-
cast Blues" gives an eye-
opening perspective on
what's happening in the
media (www.broadcast-
blues.tv).
The Fair Elections
Now Act, House Resolu-
tion 1826, addresses
campaign finance re-
form. We should encour-
age all U.S. representa-
tives to co-sponsor it.
At the state level, if we
work very fast to address
campaign finance re-
form, we can tell our
state senator to vote "no"
on Senate Bill 880


strengthening "leader-
ship funds," which will
encourage more corrup-
tion and undue influence
by "affiliated party com-
mittees." This bill is being
fast-tracked right now in
the state legislature by
the majority leaders.
Politics is now all
about money, money,
money. What ever hap-
pened to serving the peo-
ple?
In every election -
federal, state and local -
our No. 1 job as citizens is
to vote. We shouldn't com-
plain if we don't vote.
When we vote, we
want to know our votes
count as cast. When the
Florida Supreme Court
upheld our Sarasota
County charter amend-
ment on Feb. 11, calling
for meaningful spot
checks of voting equip-
ment, we were reassured
that voting machine
manufacturers and elec-
tion officials would stay
on their toes, knowing
they might be audited, so
voters could know the
equipment works prop-
erly on election day and
counts our votes correct-
ly.
Why then did our
Sarasota County Super-
visor of Elections choose
not to do the audit of the
county election on
March 16 as required by
law? This was a legally
required, simple and
inexpensive audit, for
one race only. An auditor
had already been select-
ed in 2007, and the
supervisor had many
months to get the auditor
and herself up to speed
for the election.
Was she hoping for yet
another "voter suppres-
sion bill," like the one last
spring, that would give


all power to the state in
matters of elections?
There is one on the hori-
zon, S.B. 900 and its com-
panion, H.B. 1019. These
two bills filed in 2010
would pre-empt all pow-
er to the state in election
matters, and crush our
county charter amend-
ment.
They are dangerous
bills. The "uniformity"
they impose would give
all power to the state and
prohibit Sarasota County
from conducting the
common sense spot-
check audits of voting
equipment called for in
our charter. These bills
would destroy our home
rule right to add protec-
tions at the county level,
protections that are miss-
ing from state law and
unlikely ever to be added
by the Legislature. Voters
have to stand up once
more for home rule, and
demand that our state
senators and representa-
tives strike the pre-emp-
tion language in S.B. 900
and H.B.1019.
Our county commis-
sion should defend our
county charter as upheld
by the Florida Supreme
Court, rather than sitting
idly by while the supervi-
sor of elections tries to
evade it. Our supervisor
of elections was not only
wrong to skip the audit
March 16, but she didn't
follow the law.

dent of Sarasota Alliance
for Fair Elections.

MR. SHEEPSHEAD
COLUMNIST


Is sheepshead

season over?
It is March 24 and I'm
wondering if this the end of
sheepshead season. The
water is warming up but the
sheepies aren't.
I went fishing at the jetty
Saturday afternoon and the
tide was moving too fast on
the inlet side for my bobber
system to be effective, so I
tried the Gulf side and never
had a bite. I decided to take
the bobber off and fish the
inlet side.
It seemed like a good deci-
sion because I was getting
many bites. Finally, I caught
an 11-incher. The main prob-
lem was that I was constantly
getting hung up. I tried differ-
ent weights but was still hav-
ing problems.
One gentleman caught
seven or eight but most were
suspect as to whether they
were of legal size or not. The
few others I saw caught
were either undersize or
barely legal. It seems like it's
December, January or April.
Usually early in the season,
sheepies just nibble and
leave teeth marks on the bait.
In April, most of the sheepies
are undersize or barely legal.
I am not giving up yet. I
may be out there today to
prove myself wrong. If the
bite does improve, I think the
bite will go into the first or
second week of April. We

After winning a huge game
against Manatee to end last
week, Venice didn't have a let-
down against Port Charlotte
in their next game as junior
Mel Dembinski pitched a
two-hit shutout as the Lady
Indians blanked the Lady
Pirates, 7-0, in a Class 5A-
District 10 game at Venice
High.
The win keeps the Lady
Indians (11-3 overall) unbeaten
in the district with a 5-0 record.
Port Charlotte's record falls to
8-7 overall and 2-3 in the dis-
trict.
If it wasn't for one Lady
Pirate, Dembinski (7-2) would
have tossed a no-hitter.
The only hits the right-han-
der allowed were singles in the
second and fourth innings by
Paige Brayshaw.
Dembinski finished with
five strikeouts and one walk.
In the previous meeting
against Port Charlotte, Dem-
binski gave up just three hits
in a 4-2 victory.
"I don't really think about

past games," said Dembinski. "I
just have to spin the ball and I
think I spun the ball and did
my job. I used my rise, curve-
ball and change-up."
"Mel looked very strong,"
said Venice coach Dan Rubin.
"That is two games in a row
where she just took command
and that is what we need.


That is perfect for her. She
shut them (Manatee) down
and now she shut Port
Charlotte down."
Venice opened the scoring
in the first inning. Amber
Yonker reached on one of Port
Charlotte's six errors then with
one out, Chelsea Zgrabik lined
her fifth home run of the sea-


son over the right-center field
fence to give the Lady Indians a
2-0 lead.
"Why would you pitch to
her," said Rubin. "I told her
before the game that with this
wind a line drive is going to
take it out. The wind is not
going to take it down the way
she hits the ball."
"Always good to come out
and score runs," said Dem-
binski. "You relax but have to
keep the same level of play.
We're very competitive against
this team and really wanted to
beat them."
Venice added three runs in
the third inning on three hits
and two errors. Kelly Ott
knocked in one with a RBI
single and the other two runs
scored on a sacrifice fly by
Dembinski and error.
The Lady Indians added
two runs in the sixth inning
on a two-run single by Ott.
For Venice, Courtney Mark-
usson went 2-for-3.

teachers atVenice High."

Others rely on them to pay
magazine subscriptions, staff
salaries, literacy programs and
even computer services, Rob-
erts said.
Most Florida counties re-
ceive an operating grant from
the state to fund anything but
new construction. Rural coun-
ties with escalated poverty
rates also receive a second
equalization grant.
These smaller counties, like
DeSoto, which only has one
public library, will get hit hard-
est if the state drops funding.


Other regional library sys-
tems that see a greater share of
local funding have a brighter
outlook.
Sarasota received $259,384
in state grants last year. The
county uses its state aid for its
collections.
Sarasota has eight public
libraries, and Director Sara-
beth Kalajian said if state
grants disappear, the losses
will begin to add up.
"It literally means there will
be less for people to borrow,"
she said. "For us it's critical, for


others it's essential."
'Where do you go?'
State library funding was
also threatened during last
year's legislative session, but
after pressure from residents,
lawmakers pulled the propos-
al.
This year, library supporters
are hoping for similar results.
But legislators said the state's
anticipated deficit will be
tough to overcome, and some
cuts are inevitable.
"These appropriations com-


mittees have had to make
some brutal calls," said Sen.
Mike Bennett (R-Bradenton).
"This would be a tough blow to
libraries, but you have to put
everything in perspective. In
these tough times, when you're
trying to find funding, where
do you go? What do you do?"
Bennett said it's important
to explore each option and
weigh each cut independently.
For example, if comes down to
books for school children or
library funding, he will favor
schools every time, he said.


Other state lawmakers
seem to share similar senti-
ments.
"Libraries are an important
community resources, espe-
cially for people having a
tough time," said Rep. Kenneth
Roberson (R-Port Charlotte).
"I'll do everything I can to
recover as much library fund-
ing as possible, but nothing up
here is off the table, and that's
the issue."

additional problems.
City Attorney Bob Anderson
warned if a developer makes a
request for the maximum den-
sity and there is no contrary
evidence presented, the plan-
ning commission must grant
the request.
"A number of these rezones
have come to us with no oppo-
sition whatsoever. In that set-
ting, I don't think (the commis-
sion) has any choice," Ander-
son said.
"I can make language clear
that they are not entitled to the
maximum," Shelly said. "The
DCA views this concept of
using the midpoint as cutting
(density) in half. Their concern


is about urban sprawl."
"Obviously one man's urban
sprawl is not another man's
urban sprawl," Martin said.
"This whole issue of trying to
preserve the things" we identi-
fy with Venice ... I feel we are
right on the cusp of achieving
that. We want to be sure we do
our best to protect that range
of densities."
"I think we will be fine,"
Shelly said. "We'll come up
with something that I hope will
be bulletproof."
Another option, she said, is
simply not to annex some of
the properties identified for
future annexation.
"Communities often feel


(the DCA does) not under-
stand their economic implica-
tions. I believe they do," Shelly
said.
"The lowest is a 1-5 (units
per acre) density for areas clos-
est to the Myakka River. That
sticks out. It is very unusual for
a city. I have been forceful with
them (saying) the city does not
seek an incentive (to develop)
in that area. This is a sensitive
area." The city has been very
focused on this "to the point it
would almost be excluded as
an annexation if (the state)
tried to push (density) higher."
Council Member Sue Lang
noted city data shows the
amount of vacant land within


city limits can accommodate
122 percent of anticipated
population growth 20 to 30
years out, "and that's without
any annexation. We are still
more than meeting any pro-
jected demand."
"You are correct that there is
a bias," Shelly said. "They want
them to be cities.
"There is an expectation
to clump everyone together
and give them what they
need. They really don't like
large areas of low density
development, which has
been a problem in Florida for
decades."
"Density can fool you,"
added land use attorney Jeff


Boone. "I will agree sprawl is in
the eyes of the beholder. The
classic example of sprawl
around here is North Port. The
Nolen Plan is popular "be-
cause it has a mixture of densi-
ties.
"State law requires a mix-
ture of densities. Don't get
hung up on the numbers. It's
about how it feels."
City council has been revis-
ing the comp plan for two and
a half years. Once it completes
that task it will have to revise
the land use regulations that
implement the plan.

FBI from Page 1A


Promethean officials con-
firmed they, too, have been
subpoenaed for all of their
records regarding sales to both
districts.
"I have not done anything
immoral, illegal or unethical in
Sarasota or Waterloo (or any-
where for that matter) that
would result in me being per-
sonally investigated except
because of my position,"
Norris wrote in his letter. "The
buck always stops with the
superintendent."
Norris' time as Sarasota
superintendent was mired in
controversy largely because of
his push for an extra 1 mill
property tax to fund an overall
plan for improving education
that he called NeXt
Generation, and that included
the whiteboard technology.
Hanson earned both national
praise and local criticism for
his time in Sarasota, during
which he trimmed technology
costs and served for a time as
chief information officer for
both the district and the coun-
ty.
Hardy said the subpoenas


surprised district officials.
"Some people like the
whiteboards and some people
don't, but there's never been
any whiff of impropriety," he
said.
Sarasota County's purchase
of more than 3,000 white-
boards in 2007 was the largest
such installation of the tech-
nology in the country at the
time.
'Flabbergasted'
The subpoenas also trig-
gered confusion: They were
dated Feb. 17 and asked for the
records to be gathered by
March 17, a day after the sub-
poenas actually were served.
Hardy said he was assured by
the assistant U.S. attorney in
Tampa that the district would
be allowed a more reasonable
time frame than one day to
gather the records.
School Board Chair Shirley
Brown said she was "flabber-
gasted" that the FBI was inves-
tigating Norris and the
Promethean purchases. She
said the investigation is likely
triggered by a competitor to


Promethean that is frustrated
with the company's success in
earning more of the market for
whiteboard technology.
Brown also said she regard-
ed whiteboard technology as
one of the best strategies to
which Norris steered the
school district during his time
as superintendent.
"Teachers are using the
whiteboards more and more,
and most teachers love them,"
Brown said. "They are the wave
of the future."
Whiteboard technology is
one of the most heralded
developments in modern-day
classrooms because it allows
teachers to use more vivid les-
son plans, Internet access,
DVDs, a projector, a big screen
visible to all students and other
high-tech tools to teach stu-
dents more quickly and thor-
oughly.
The technology has been
huge in British schools for
years, according to a 2008
Newsweek article. More than
70 percent of Britain's schools
already were using whiteboard
technology two years ago,


while only 16 percent of
American schools had then
jumped on the whiteboard
bandwagon.
'The best'
Sarasota chose to go with
Promethean because it offered
more advanced and useful
technology than its competi-
tors at the time, Brown said.
Today, at least eight companies
are manufacturing whiteboard
technology, including
Panasonic, Hitachi, SMART
Technologies and Polyvision.
Norris, who could not be
reached for comment, said in a
later version of his letter to
Waterloo board members that
he wasn't going to waste time
speculating about how the
investigation originated. In an
earlier version of the letter,
posted on the Waterloo
Courier Web site, Norris posed
numerous possible triggers,
including an unnamed
Sarasota citizen who he said
had threatened him at a school
board meeting, Promethean
competitors, and information
technology vendors who did


not receive Sarasota contracts
while Hanson was serving as
chief information officer for
both the school district and the
county.
Norris also offered detailed
information about how and
why he recruited the Hanson
couple to help implement
Promethean technology into
Waterloo schools.
"I used Bob Hanson to help
with our technology issues
because over the years, I have
known him to be the best and
most reliable technology
expert in the country," Norris
wrote.
"I utilized Lora to help with
our strategic planning because
she is also of highest caliber
and cost less than half of what
some have spent on consul-
tants to help with their strate-
gic planning."
All in all, Norris wrote, the
Hansons received just more
than $25,000 for their work
with the Waterloo district, all
but $1,244 of which was fund-
ed by a foundation grant. The
Hansons could not be reached
for comment.

2010 Census is




getting under way


BY GREG MARTIN
STAFF WRITER


U.S. Census takers have
mailed out forms and are
delivering them by foot to
remote areas if necessary, in a
once-every-10-years effort to
count every person residing in
the United States.
It's been a constitutional
duty of the federal government
since George Washington was
president, and it's a huge
undertaking.
But it's important, accord-
ing Pamela Page-Bellis, a
North Port resident who is
working as a regional media
specialist for the Atlanta
Regional Census Center.
"The Census means two
things: money and power," she
said. "It means power because
it decides how many represen-
tatives each state has in
Congress."
Florida, in fact, is expected to
gain a seat or two in the 435-seat
U.S. House of Representatives
because the state's population


has grown while other states
have declined in population
since 2000, she said.
She also pointed out the
federal government distributes
$400 billion in federal funds
every year based on Census
data. She cited funding for
schools, health care, roads and
other infrastructure.
"So, if your community is
going to get its fair share of that
pot of money, we need to have
a true and accurate count," she
said.
Page-Bellis is one of 1.4 mil-
lion temporary workers hired
to conduct the Census.
Ten questions
In 2000, the Census asked
dozens of questions about res-
idents' heritage. This year, like
the nation's first Census, the
questions are limited to only
the basics.
The 2010 Census asks just 10
questions, seeking residents'
names, sex, date of birth,
Hispanic origin, race, house-
hold relationship and whether


they own or rent their homes.
The Census Bureau first
sent letters to about 90 percent
of residents of the United
States some 120 million
addresses. The letters advised
residents to be on the lookout
for the actual census forms.
Despite efforts to accurately
address the letters, which
include having census workers
canvass neighborhoods with
hand-held computers, the
mass mailing did not go with-
out addressing glitches, Page-
Bellis confirmed. Some local
residents who received their
letters noted they had the right
street address but wrong town.
Residents who receive let-
ters with the wrong address are
asked to write "wrong address"
on their questionnaire and
include the correct address
and mail it in, she said.
Necessary measures
If residents return the ques-
tionnaire, no Census taker will
visit their residence.
However, to reach residents

The U.S. Census Bureau awaits the results of the efforts of the 1.4 mil-
lion temporary workers who are involved in counting the people living


in the country.

of remote locations, Census
takers will use "special opera-
tions" to conduct the tally,
Page-Bellis said.
"They actually go out in
boats," she said. "I mean, we
deliver everywhere. We use
dogsleds in Alaska, boats in
Florida, we take whatever
measures necessary, but we
deliver a questionnaire to each
and every residence."
Census takers also have
special plans to tally residents
living in far-flung rural areas,
high-rise apartments, traveling
with carnivals, incarcerated in
prison or serving in the mili-
tary, she said.
"Everybody who is breath-


ing on American soil gets
counted," she said.
While the population statis-
tics must be delivered to the
president within the year, the
personal information gathered
by the Census remains confi-
dential for 72 years under fed-
eral law. So, undocumented
alien residents should not be
afraid to complete the form,
Page-Bellis said. By doing so,
they'll be counted in federal
funding formulas for social
programs, she said.
"This nation cannot move
forward until people mail back
the questionnaire," she said.

Grant will help mobile home park drainage


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

A Community Devel-
opment Block Grant
that will be used to fund
bypass pumps in North
Port will also fund
drainage improvements
in Venice.
The Sarasota County
Commission voted 5-0
during the consent agen-
da March 16 for a feder-
al Housing and Urban
Development Disaster
Recovery Funding Grant
totaling $2,353,794.
North Port's projects


will receive $420,000,
while the grant would
allocate $157,500 for the
city of Venice to be used
for drainage improve-
ments at the Venice
Municipal Mobile Home
Park.
North Port will install
14 bypass pumps at
sewage lift stations in
the older section of the
city west of Sumter
Boulevard to the city lim-
its, according to assistant
City Manager Danny
Schult. Some lift stations
are located in Harbor
Isles, Harbor Cove and

The pumps will allow
the sewer system to
operate during periods
of high rain.
In other action Tues-
day, commissioners voted
not to model the coun-
ty's local preference
ordinance for hiring
professional services
after Charlotte County's.
Instead, they voted 4-0,
with Commissioner Car-
olyn Mason absent, to
make refinements in
the county procurement
manual and thus avoid
creating a new ordinance.
Following a presenta-
tion by Jennifer Slusarz,
procurement manager,


the commissioners voted
not to allow nonlocal
companies to gain local
preference points by
using local subcontrac-
tors, a policy Charlotte
County employs. Instead,
Slusarz was directed to
refine the procurement
manual to "encourage"
companies to use local
subcontractors whenever
possible.
The motion also
addressed a section in
the procurement manual
defining local knowl-
edge/local experience.
Credit currently is given
for county-based pro-
jects done within the last
two years. Instead, that
experience credit will be


expanded to include the
last seven years.
Additionally, experi-
ence credit will be
expanded from projects
within just Sarasota
County to projects with-
in the three counties
Sarasota has deemed to
be local Charlotte,
DeSoto and Manatee.
The commissioners
voted 5-0 to approve an
$837,032 contract with
SimplexGrinnell LP for a
new video visitation sys-
tem for the Sarasota
County Jail. The system
would allow incarcerated
inmates in the county jail
to meet and visit with fam-
ily and friends.
"I'm ecstatic," said


Commissioner Carolyn
Mason, who had become
the point person on the
issue.
Mason said Simplex
Grinnell, one of seven
vendors that submitted
proposals, currently has
put into place "temporary
measures" so that a up to
six inmates at a time can
use the video system.
While no start date for
the video system installa-
tion had been given,
Mason said, "We all have
said as soon as possible."
Commissioner Shan-
non Staub said the jail's
10-year-old video system
had never been main-
tained and "that was the
problem."

St. Mark's Episcopal Church ofVenice has been a leader in recycling for 50 years.
In 1959 the church opened a thrift store on Venice Avenue where people could get rid of
things no longer needed. Items could be consigned or donated. Either way, it was a win-
win situation for the church, which earned money on the sales and also for the donors,
sellers and buyers. Donors gained tax deductions. Sellers recouped a bit of money for no-
longer-needed items and buyers saved a lot of money over retail prices for the same or
similar items recycling in its purest form.
By 1971, the shop was doing so well it needed to move into larger quarters. A photo in
the April 22, 1971, issue of The Gondolier showed a parade of some 30 men and women
moving items from the original shop on Venice Avenue to new quarters at 203 W Miami
Ave.
SThe space had contained three apartments on the ground floor of what is today
known as Burgundy Square. When new, the building had garage space on the main floor.
Suellltin in the l'JJUs when the building became known the Hollywood Apartments, three apartments replaced the
garage space.
"We pay for three different meters," shop manager Diane Kerin said.
Kerin has managed the shop, which today is known as St. Mark's Divine Consign, for some five years. She is the only paid employee.
"It is a fun place to work," she said. "If you can't come to work and have a great time you shouldn't be here."
As many as 170 different volunteers find it fun, volunteering their time throughout the year. Their ranks are swelled by "snowbird" volunteers during the winter
season but still total more than 100 year-round, according to Kerin. In the summer the shop has several teen-aged volunteers who are earning volunteer credits for
school programs like Bright Futures, she said.
Volunteers handle all the jobs to be found in a store, from cleaning and rearranging to merchandising, selling and accounting.
Louise Firth, 93, is the bookkeeper. She has been a volunteer for 33 years, since moving to Venice from New England.
"I had to learn to operate the computer," she said while signing checks to consigners recently.
Trish Wiley, another volunteer, is an interior designer. She "redresses" the floor whenever a new load of furniture comes in.
Jennifer Boyd volunteers to dress windows.
There is no tax on anything as all the profits go to local charities.
"We keep all the money in the community," Kerin said. "We've upgraded the shop and expanded categories."
Today's merchandise reflects the newer name as some 80 percent is consigned and about 20 percent is donated. The eclectic mix includes antique and contem-
porary furniture, dishes, fine china, silver flatware, kitchen items, pictures, lawn furniture, golf clubs, antique decor items, costume and other jewelry, glassware,
records, videos, linens and clothing for men and women. Kern said it is the only shop in Venice that consigns men's clothing.
"Vinyl is coming back," Kerin said about the record sales. "The sound quality is better."
The shop just took in about 200 items of bric-a-brac from a house in Calusa Lakes and several items of clothing from a designer store.
"I buy all my clothes here," said Kerin, who was wearing a stylish cropped jacket and coordinating slacks. "We donate period clothes to Venice Theatre."
In the case of clothing, which includes shoes, they try to only take items less than 3 years old so they are still
in style. SUN PHOTOS BY KIM COOL
The shop also does appraisals and estate sales, although in the case of estate sales, they do not go in and
clean a house like some professional estate sale companies do. Instead, they price and sell the items, charging
the same fee as they would if the items were for sale in the shop.
"I've moved one family four times now and he just died," Kerin said. "We also work with elder care groups, a
prison ministry, the homeless and others. If it doesn't sell in the shop, it gets a good home."
The shop also works on a 50-50 basis with charities such as Our Mother's House, which does not have its
own consignment shop.
Consignors receive 70 percent of the sale price for items that sell for more than $200 and 60 percent of i -
other items. Items priced above $200 must stay for 90 days. Other items will be marked down after 30 days in -
the shop. Consignors pay annual dues of $4. .
"Nothing can be purchased out of the back," Kerin said.
Furniture has been doing well because of the economy, she added.' S '
On any given day, the popular shop is a beehive of activity with people coming in to look and/or to drop
off items. For eight consecutive years, Devine Consign was voted the Best Consignment Shop in Venice.
Consignments (limited to 20 items per appointment) are accepted by appointment only on Mondays, -
Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9 to 10:20 a.m. Of the 20 items, 10 may be hanging items and 10 shelf
items. The latter includes shoes and purses as well as bric-a-

Pine View wins district Academic Olympics


All-Star Team prepares
for state contest.

FROM EDUCATION
FOUNDATION OF
SARASOTA COUNTY

Nail-biting rounds, rapidly
switching leads, hard-fought
challenges and expectations of
upsets marked the finals of the
2010 Academic Olympics
March 13.
After eight weeks of tough
competition, each of the top
four teams Cardinal Moon-
ey, North Port High School,
Riverview High School and
Pine View School arrived
with high hopes and played to
win.
In the final game, Riverview
led after the first round, but
Pine View surged to take the
trophy with a 199-144 win over
the Rams.
The college bowl-style com-
petition, now in its 29th year, is
the only program for Sarasota
County high schools that pro-
vides the opportunity for com-
petitive team efforts in acade-
mics comparable to athletics.
Eight local high schools
competed in weekly round
robin play from January
through March. Semifinal
matches determined the four


final teams on March 9. The
daylong finals tournament was
held March 13 at the Sarasota
County School Board auditori-
um in The Landings.
From April 15-17, an All-
Star Team selected by the
coaches will advance to the
25th Florida Education Com-
missioner's Academic Chal-
lenge at Walt Disney World.
Coach Blake Wiley will accom-
pany the team, which includes
captain James Bedell, Theo
Breen and Taylor Schwimmer
(Pine View), Preston Davis
(Riverview High School), Don-
nie Morrow (Sarasota High
School) and Keifer O'Connor
(Cardinal Mooney).
Over the years, members of
the Sarasota County teams
have won scholarships and
competed nationally with
Team Florida.
All-Star Team travel and
accommodation expenses are
covered by the Education
Foundation of Sarasota
County, which produces the
series in partnership with the
schools.
The Olympians are some of
Sarasota County's most acade-
mically talented students.
Each has earned a place on his
or her school team through a
rigorous competition at the
school level. Eight teams com-


peted this year, including a
team from each of the compre-
hensive public high schools in
Sarasota County.
Coaches include Rosemary
Schmidt (Booker High School),
Jaime Patmor (Cardinal Moon-
ey), Peter Hinman-Cosola
(North Port), Blake Wiley (Pine
View), Christina Feasley (Riv-
erview), Austin Dunk (Sara-
sota), Penny Schroeder (Sara-
sota Military Academy) and
Paul Bono (Venice High
School).
Elizabeth Bloechl directed
the program for the 14th con-
secutive year.
Dart Foundation is the Aca-
demic Olympic Gold sponsor.
American Association of Uni-
versityWomen, Venice Branch,
is Olympic Bronze sponsor.
Other contributors underwrite
participants with gifts of $100
to sponsor a student.
Both Venice and Sarasota
branches ofAAUW support the
program by recruiting, training
and deploying volunteers.
Military Officers Associ-
ation of Sarasota donates
prizes awarded to the stu-
dent teams.
Military Officers All-Stars
were set to play the Sarasota
County All-Star team in an
exhibition match at Pine View
School March 23.

March roars with a lion's share of activities


FRAN VALENCIC
SOCIAL COLUMNIST

Chair Jerry Woelfel intro-
duced several hundred people
to a taste of Venice at the
Venice-Nokomis Rotary Club's
second annual Toast toVenice.
Along with wines of their
choice, partygoers sampled
sliders, lobster bisque, cheeses,
dips and luscious chocolates.
The chilly evening at the
historic Venice Train Depot
didn't stifle warm hearts from
enjoying the food and music


to benefit theVenice-Nokomis
Rotary Club's charities.
Online shopping
Pat Coehlo brought a
new trend in fashion shows
to Venice with Boutiqueon
Wheels.com. The Venice Gar-
dens Homeowners Associa-
tion event gave women a
chance to view clothes, pur-
chase them and go online
to purchase more. Special
thanks to Janis Cowan for
preparing the chicken salad
for the luncheon.
Neither wind nor cold
Plein air artists braved
cold weather to paint the
town. The fifth annual Venice
Art Center event sent artists
on the road from the jetties to
Spanish Point and along the
streets of Venice to capture
their views of paradise.
A lucky day
The Computer Users


Group meets on the first
Monday of the month at the
Venice Public Library at 4 p.m.
The meetings include infor-
mation and classes by com-
puter gurus Adam Richter
and Ann Dodderidge.
Since the group is no
longer sending out paper
newsletters, lucky members
get a $5 reduction on dues.
"Just keep on clicking," Dod-
deridge said.
See you at
the Sun Fiesta
Traditionally, many winter
residents leave Venice at the
end of March. Thanks for
brightening our lives with
your volunteer hours, sup-
porting our programs and
enhancing our economy.
Enjoy a safe trip home and
we'll see you in the fall.
One of our best
The special person of this
week is Jerry Woelfel. This


nice lady is one of our
celebrity seniors who retired
so she could work.
For more than 15 years she
has been meeting with a
group of women each week
for exercise and coffee. She
writes an occasional travel
feature for the Gondolier Sun;
her latest was about hot air
balloons.
She is president of the
Venice-Nokomis Federated
Republican Club Women's
Club. She recently chaired the
Venice-Nokomis Rotary Club's
Toast to Venice fundraiser.
She is also a "phartist" a
photographer in a group of
artists.
Friends in need know they
can call Jerry because they
are at the top of her priority
list.
Jerry Woelfel is one of the
women who make Venice a
great place to live.

Expect the best

at Venice Theatre
V enice Theatre is a place where I expect to be
entertained. Often its productions are even better
than even the most optimistic me might expect.
"Rent," the current offering in the 90-seat Yvonne T.
Pinkerton Theatre is that good. Director/choreographer
Brad Wages assembled a near-perfect cast and then
upped the ante. Jason Brenner came through with good
music. Nicholas Hartman designed costumes even more
perfect than the ones he designed for "My Fair Lady" and
Kirk Hughes provided a set worthy of the Great White
Way.
With Broadway and national tour experience, Wages
has been a brilliant addition to the staff assembled by
VT's Managing Artistic Director Murray Chase during the
past 13 plus years. But then so have Brenner, Hartman
and Dorian Boyd, the theater's sound designer.
That all of them are as good onstage as behind the
scenes is a bonus. Knowing Chase, it was likely part of
the master plan, which has lifted a good theater into the
stratosphere as one of the top three community theaters
in the U.S. Come June 22-27, when it hosts its first
international festival, Venice Theatre's fame will surely
spread.
For tickets to "Rent" and the festival, call 941-488-1115

Charlotte Players bring quilt to life
BY SHARE DERRICKSON ., .-,lb. -,. I',
SUN CORRESPONDENT


For months, almost 20 quilters from
the area have been using their talent
to create a special quilt. Each
individual square tells a story of the
maker's life. Molly Parkes of Port Charlotte,
a member of the Charlotte Players, said
the quilt will be the fabric by which they will
tell their tale at the Cultural Center
Theater.
March 26 through April 3, the theater
troupe will put on their performance of
Quilters, a play written by Molly Newman
and Barbara Damashek, that is based on
the book, The Quilters: Women and
Domestic Art by Patricia Cooper and
Norma Bradley Allen.
"The quilt is called the legacy quilt. It is
culmination of the story that takes place in
the show Quilters. It is the story of a
mother and her six daughters. Back in the
old days, everyone had quilts that were
not just for warmth they had meaning,"
Parkes said.
The setting of the play is during the
days of the pioneer women who moved
west to help settle the United States and
used quilting to record their lives.
"Throughout the whole show, each of
the daughters talks with the mother about
some instance that happened in their
lives. The mother, who feels she is coming
close to the end of her life, decides that
she wants to give a gift to her daughters
and it is a quilt that is made telling the
story of the lives."
Parkes explained this type of quilt is
called a sampler quilt. "Each
block is different and I-ell
an individual story."
"I started working
on the quilt in ,.
January and I
went around to
the various quilt
clubs and the quilt
shops and asked
if they would like to 6*
become involved
with the making it an.d
I have about 16 or 1-
people who volunte-r- .:1 .
make the blocks. I got [he blocks
back from them and I put the blocks
together."
The quilt, she said, will be shown at the
end of the play when the mother presents
it to them.
"This particular quilt is being raffled off
and somebody will be taking this beautiful
quilt home with them after the show."
There will be a number of musical

Mills Brothers 'Glow' again


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
The good and the bad is that
Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe
has outgrown its venue the
Sarasota Art Center.
It is good that people recognize the
talent in Nate Jacobs' troupe but also
sad for the intimacy of the art center
has served so well to add to the
feeling of intimacy between cast
and audience.
The troupe's latest show, "The
Magnificent Music of the '40s" opened
to a full house at the art center Friday,
March 19. It continues through April 4.


The walls are filled with Florida-themed
paintings that provide a colorful back
drop to the elegance of the
singers who, dressed by
artistic director/choreogra-
pher and costumer Nate
Jacobs, appear mostly '
in back and white once
they get beyond the
early years of the first
African-American singing
group to have its own radio
show, to appear before the King
of England (George V).
From their earliest days singing in
churches in their hometown of Piqua,


Ohio to the end when the grandson
was the last family member singing in
a quartet honoring the name The
Mills Brothers, America and
much of the world loved their
music. Jacobs has another
hit on his hand with this
show. He is the narrator,
sharing the family history
in the first act and then,
joining in the singing in the
second half when he appears
as the brothers' father, who, for 20
years sang with the three surviving
sons following the untimely death of
John Jr. (Jeff Atkins Jr.).


The rest of the cast includes Leon
Pitts who sings faster than most people
run; Sheldon Rodan who carries
himself like Frank Sinatra or Dean
Martin; and Early Dean who sings lead
on several songs in the second act and
like each of the singers, has a voice
that just doesn't quit. They are backed
by bassist Jay Dodge and pianist
Ozanda Waldalph Gray Jr. From "Beer
Barrel Polka" to "Glow Worm," this is
Memory Lane at its best.
Tickets are $20 per person. Art
Center Sarasota is at 707 North
Tamiami Trail, Sarasota. For tickets
call (941) 366-1505.

On the road in Casablanca







On the road in Casablanca


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Grass may not grow beneath my
feet but dust certainly did in the
produce market at Casablanca,
Morrocco.
There with my daughter Heidi on the
first stop of a nine-day cruise aboard
the Norwegian Cruise Line's Jade out of
Barcelona, we signed up for NCL's
Casablanca Highlights bus tour.
Our guide was Tashmer Mohat. He
said to call him "Taz."
The central market was colorful and
chaotic. Had it been raining, it also
would have been muddy. It was March 1
and though it was the rainy season, the
sun was high in the sky and the
temperature in the low 70s.
NCL offers several Moroccan tours
including an overnight tour featuring a
four-hour drive across the plains to the
oasis at Marrakech, a walk through
ancient Medina, hotel stay and return to
the ship the next day in Agadir. There
also are eight- and six-hour tours but
since we were on this cruise to relax,
the short tour seemed the best way to
get a feel for this area of Africa. Touring
on one's own is not suggested in
Morrocco.
We enjoyed a bus ride along the
harbor, a stop at the bustling produce
market, a visit to the Royal Palace, a
drive through an upscale residential
area, some free time for shopping in the
area of Mohamed V's Square and a tour
inside and outside of the world's largest
religious monument other than Mecca
- the Hassan II Mosque. Its main
building holds 25,000 people inside
and an additional 41,000 outside,


according to Taz.
Arabic is the main language, followed
by French and Spanish. More than 97
percent of the people are Muslim. Jews
account for 1.5 percent and the balance
of the popular is Catholic or some other
religion.
We drove past the wall of the oldest
part of the city, the naval academy and
hundreds of television disks on every
building some on rooftops and some
attached to walls.
The mosque, with its towering 689-
foot minaret, was impressive. Every
surface, including the tiled area sur-
rounding the building is covered with
designs or various shades of terrazzo
or colored tiles or, on the inside, natural
colored wood much of it carved.
Construction lasted from 1986 to 1993.
The building's cost has been estimated
at $800 million, all raised from public
donations.
Shoes are removed before entering
and placed in plastic bags. We carried
them as we toured the main floor which
has space for 15,000 men in prayer.
Above that are balconies edged in
carved wood half-walls that shield the
space housing space for 10,000
women. While pointing out the detail
design work throughout the space Taz
also pointed out the roof, which can
retract completely in about 15 minutes.
Chandeliers were made in Murano,
Italy.
After putting our shoes back on at
the other end of the prayer area, we
were led downstairs to the ablution
room. About half the size of the main
floor room, the space is filled with
round fountains where six to eight

baskets.

individuals can wash before prayer
time. Taz demonstrated the methodical
cleansing ritual.
Back on the bus we made a stop for
beverages before heading back to the
ship. My one disappointment was that
my American feet were too large to fit
in any of the lovely Moroccan leather
shoes I saw at the marketplace.
Instead I bought bracelets for several
friends.

SUN PHOTOS BY KIM COOL
Rays swim slowly around the ray petting tank at Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota.


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Back in 1955, Mote Marine
Laboratory's founding
director Dr. Eugenie Clark
wanted to start a small marine
laboratory on Florida's west coast.
With backing from Anne Vanderbilt,
she began the Cape Haze Marine
Laboratory, naming its first boat for
the famous thoroughbred race
horse, Native Dancer, owned by the
Vanderbilt family's racing stable.
Clark's chief interest was sharks.
By 1969 she had penned "The Lady
and the Sharks." It is being reissued
this year in conjunction with Mote's
55th anniversary.
While the new book is bigger and
better, so it today's Mote. The main
location is now in Sarasota but the
world famous leader in marine
science today has seven science
centers, 24 research programs and
has some 300,000 visitors each
year. Staff members man rehabilita-
tion programs for sea turtles,
dolphins, sharks and other sea
creatures, educate thousands of
students on site and in various
school programs and, through a
broad-based internship program,
prepare graduate and other
students for careers in marine
science fields. Most of the volun-
teers that monitor nesting sea
turtles May 1-Oct. 31 have been
trained by Mote associates

Hats off to the Animal Welfare
League, Wilson Williams and
everyone involved in one of the
most successful fundraisers in
Charlotte County ever.
Last week's Golden Memories
concert at the Charlotte Harbor
Events and Conference
Center nearly sold out.
Glenn Leonard's Temp-
tations Experience,
Wilson Williams and his .
Platters, Pam Darden's
Marvelettes Revue and
the Legacy of Clyde McPhat-
ter and the Drifters drew about 1,800
people to the event. Between tickets
sold and a silent auction and dona-
tions, the league fared very well.
All four groups were backed up by
the same band and that meant a very
long day for some talented musicians
that included our own Al Holland on
keyboards. Al says the group began
the day around 9 a.m. and it all
wrapped up around 10:15 p.m.
Thursday night.
If you enjoyed that event then check
this out. Glenn Leonard, the lead on
the Temptations and a former original
member of the legendary Motown
group, will team up with Verceal and
Wilson Williams on a special Motown
night at the M Club Thursday. Cover
charge is $5.
This weekend, The Top Hats are
scheduled for Fishermen's Village
center stage Friday night and the


.


popular Yard Dogs perform their brand
of Florida from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m.
Saturday.
The Crashers are scheduled for
Friday and Saturday at Harpoon
Harry's.
Meanwhile, the M Club is
going Latin-American on
Hackin' Saturday night with a new
Around band called Claudio B
By and Co.
John This is the last week-
Hackworth end for the Sarasota
County Fair lots of good
food, free acts and rides there.
It is also your last chance to catch
the 2010 Bay Area Renaissance
Festival at MOSI in Tampa.
If you're looking for some fair-type
fun closer to Punta Gorda, you might
consider the Ninth Annual Southwest
Florida Seafood Festival and Car
Show scheduled from 11 a.m. until
5:30 p.m. Saturday at the German
American Social Club, 2101 SW Pine
Island Road in Cape Coral. Admission
is $5 and there will be live music,
seafood, a car show and a raffle for a
2010 Harley Davidson Softail Deluxe.
I will remind people once more how
this column is dependent on informa-
tion provided to me. Club owners who
have live music, anyone planning a
festival or any special event should call
or email me 10 days prior to the event
for a free mention in this space each

'Rent' shows the depth of


abilities at Venice Theatre


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
S ent" is a double-good gift from
Venice Theatre. Not only is the
I Tony Award-winning
musical/rock opera based on "La
Boheme," the Puccini opera, entertaining,
it is filled with talented singers and
dancers who, in many cases, sharpened
their skills at the theater, in classes and
on stage.
Jonathan Hall as Angel Dumott
Schunard, a stunning drag queen, is the
prime example. Hall, now 23, grew up at
the theater, gaining experience and
honing his craft with each new perfor-


mance. Directed by Brad Wages, Hall
took a major role and pushed it over the
top, turning in a sensational performance
March 14.
Venice Theatre sound designer Dorian
Boyd was equally stellar as Mark Cohen,
the lead character who runs around with
a camera at all times to record the life
and times of this Bohemian community
on New York's Lower East side in the
1980s. Drugs, sex, rock n' roll and the
onset of AIDS permeate this commune-
like organization of young artists trying to
find their disparate ways in the world.
Lauren Kelly, another VT regular, adds


another role to her repertoire as JoAnne
Jefferson and Mark Mercado caps a long
VT career with his performance as
Benjamin Coffin III.
Venice newcomer Geena M. Ravella is
stunning as Mimi Marquez who is torn
between her love for Roger Davis (Evan
Glantz) and life on the street. Booker
grad Glantz wowed Venice audiences as
Curly in the theater's summer stock
production of "Oklahoma" in 2008.
Rebecca Phippard pushed the role of
Maureen into the stratosphere with Wages
direction and her own abundance of talent,
plus an ingratiating smile that doesn't stop.


This totally strong cast also includes
Charles McKenzie (Tom Collins), Mark
Mercado (Benjamin Coffin III) and, in
multiple roles: Kyle Luckett, Nelia
Altamirano, Anthony C. Dolciotto, Kim
Hough, Dana Inouye and Tommy St.
Amand.
Tickets are $24 per person and a sell-
out is expected, although the show
continues through April 11 in the Yvonne
T Pinkerton Theatre, Venice Theatre, 140
W. Tampa Ave., on the island in down-
town Venice. Adult language and situa-
tions. Call the box office at 941-488-1115
or visit www.venicestage.com.


'Managing Maxine' is right on


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
W hen Maxine (Sharon Spel-
man), an outspoken
new widow, invile. _...
retired judge, Arthur
(Granville Van Dusen),
mild-mannered
recent widower, for
dinner, the heat is





Shaffer's love story of
two people in their 70s, an
Asolo Repertory Company
production which opened March 12 at
the Mertz Theatre.
Adding zest and complications to
Shaffer's scenario of love and sex
between senior citizens are the couple's
grown children. Maxine's daughter
Emmy (Mackenzie Kyle) and husband
Larry (Jud Wilford) seem surprised by
this new side of her mother while his
daughter, Ivy (Bethany Weise), was
nearly apoplectic after seeing too much
of Maxine while dropping in unan-
nounced at the judge's home.


Adding to the fun are Maxine's
neighbor Joanne (Geraldine Librandi)
and Arthur's friend Louis (Howard
Elfman). Geriatric Geraldine's
tennis elbow wraps and pads
are just some of the site
Sags used by director
Mark Rucker to
Sembellish a wonder-
ful story line.
Set designer
Timothy Macabee
cleverly employed
sliding panels and a
minimum of objects to
portray the several
scenes needed to carry
this sometimes funny and
sometimes poignant must-see love
story along. Costumes are by Luke
Aaron Brown, Marian Wallace is the
stage manager, assisted by intern
Jessica Stepak.
The award-winning play debuted in
Atlanta. This is the Florida premier of a
story that
"Managing Maxine" plays through April
18 in rotating repertory on the Mertz
stage in the FSU Center for the Perform-
ing Arts, 5555 North Tamiami Trail,
Sarasota. Tickets are $13-$60. Call the
box office at 941-351-8000.


Venice Theatre brings

'Dearly Departed' back to life


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
V enice Theatre continues to
celebrate its 60th anniversary
season with yet another hit from
a past season "Dearly Departed."
Opening on the mainstage March 30
where it will play through April 18, David
Bottrell and Jesse Jones' "Dearly
Departed" is set in the deep South's
Bible Belt where the Turpin family has
gathered for the funeral of its patriarch,
Daddy Bud.
The Turpins give new meaning to the
idea of a dysfunctional family. But that
is only half the fun, for each night
during the production someone in the
great community of Venice will quietly
join in the nonsense in a role (Daddy
Bud) that requires neither speaking nor
breathing.
Leading up to the funeral, there will
be plenty of drinking, conniving, some
fooling around in and out of cars and a
whole line-up of misfit neighbors, family
members and friends aiding and betting
the Turpins in their hour of need.
Directed by Kelly Woodland, the cast


includes Donna Hadley as the widow
Raynelle, Mike Gilbert as first-born son
Ray-Bud, Suzanne Coccia as super
religious sister-in-law Marguerite,
Jeremy Stone as Royce, Vanessa
Radovan as Lucille, Heather O'Dea as
Suzanne and Steve O'Dea as Junior.
David Boz plays Reverend Hooker with
Steve Credeur as Norval, Allan Kollar
as Delightful/Clyde, Eric Schneider as
Nadine, Kay Crosby as Veda and
Candace Sullivan as Juanita.
The set is by Donna Buckalter.
Costumes are by Jeannette Rybicki.
Sound is Gabriella Gorka and Dorian
Boyd who also is appearing as Mark,
the lead in "Rent," through April 11 in
the Yvonne T Pinkerton Theatre. John
Andzulis is the technical director and
lighting designer and Sharon Fieser is
the stage manager.
Tickets are $24 per person for adults
and $12 for students. Venice Theatre is
at 140 W. Tampa Ave., on the island in
downtown Venice. For tickets, visit
www.venicestage.com or call the box
office at 941-488-1115.

who's been sent to Paris to stop a
terrorist attack.

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

tion for

denly makes sense when he's around

malevolent eye of abusive manager
Kim Fowley (Michael Shannon) during
their teen years.

She's Out of My League (R) C+

himself, and schemes to make the

way of knowing what ingredients go well together.

uses her artistic talent making food look and taste good.


Mango Bistro shows the art of food


BY SHARE DERRICKSON
SUN CORRESPONDENT
On Dearborn Street in Englewood,
a small, chic cafe is full of patrons
where the food is as much an art
as the eclectic ambiance.
'We wanted the bistro to have a
European flare," Marie Laforge said.
Laforge, who co-owns the Mango Bistro
with her partner Ricardo Roggero, have
decorated the inside to reflect their
personalities. She is from France and he
is from Brazil and the color scheme and
the decor clearly shows that. Colorful
sarongs that Laforge makes are on
display, as are other unique works of art.
"I design these," handing over an
exquisitely decorated silk sarong. "I sell a
lot of them from here," said, but right now,
I am so busy running the bistro, I don,t
have as much time as I used to.
"We are both from different countries. I
am from Europe and he is from Brazil. I
missed not having a European type of
place around," the artist said, "with
outside seating and a place where
people can gather and eat and drink and
enjoy life so that was my idea."
Roggero uses his talents for the day-to-
day operations using his own talents in
the computer industry. "I also operate a
service and support computer business,"
he said.
Both say their travels around the world
helped them put together what they
consider a unique dining experience.
"In Europe, bistros are a place to hang
out and socialize in a meeting place


where one can sit and enjoy the company
of others," Laforge said. "I knew once I
moved to Englewood, something was
missing."
Laforge, who moved to Englewood 11
years ago, fell in love with an area that is
more and more becoming an artists
community. "I came from California and
that was too expensive and I like the
opportunity here and not have 20 million
other places of the same kind to compete
with."
Dearborn Street is improving and
growing and becoming a hub of culture,
she said.
"Everything here is made to order and
is fresh daily, and, "I always want to make
the food pretty." It is the artistic part of her
that insists that each dish reflect that.
The food runs the gambit from freshly
made crepes to Panini,s to refreshing
fruit dishes.
The business, which opened two years
ago this month, has been a huge
success, they say it's not an easy feat in
today's economy. "It did become a
meeting place and we have regular
customers who come and spend time
eating and talking."
Part of the attraction for customers is
an emphasis on healthy living. "We are
not a health-food restaurant, but we
attract people who are into a more
healthy fare."
"There is nothing premade here and no
processed food," Roggero said.
"I have traveled the world and taken
notebooks to write down what I like," she


said.
"She can actually lookk a
the ingredients and aul'ormai
ically knows what gc-:
together," Roggero s.aid
"She can taste someihmng
and say, Something i-
missing here, and know
what it is. It is an amazing
talent."
Roggero, a sommelier,
uses his refined


pallet for wine to
help accent each
dish. "I have
always loved wine
and the science of
it. When I go to
their table, people
love talking about
it and like it when I
recommend
something that will
go good with their
meal.%o
"We also have a
fine selection of
coffees," he said.

has an eclectic flare in entertainment.
"We have a great live music on Friday and
Saturday nights and dinners all year long.
We don,t just survive during season ^ we
are open and busy all year long," Laforge
said.
The music, she said, often has people
dancing outside and celebrating, they said.
Celebrating life with art, food, and song,


is what makes the two happy. "And the
customers love it," Roggero said.
The Mango Bistro is open Monday
through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
and on Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m.
to 9:30 p.m. They are closed on Sunday.

FCW Wrestling returns

to Punta Gorda


FLORIDA CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING
uge news for fans of Sports Entertain-
ment: WWE Superstar Kofi Kingston will
be making an appearance in Punta
Gorda on March 31 as part of Florida Champi-
onship Wrestling's Spring Break Madness Tour.
The former Intercontinental champion, World
Tag Team, and United States Champion will be
performing a meet and greet autograph session
for lucky fans attending the Florida Champi-
onship Wrestling show at the Punta Gorda
Charlotte Harbor Event and Conference Center.
In addition to the appearance of Kofi Kingston,
there are eight matches on the card including
the stars of WWE's new television show NXT,
and the hot FCW Divas.
Kofi Kingston had the following to say about
his appearance at the show: "I am looking
forward to meeting the FCW fans in Punta
Gorda. It is always nice to see how things are
developing with the future talent of WWE. In a
couple of years, the majority of the Superstars


you see on the show this Friday will have been
drafted up to Raw or Smackdown, so I suppose
it is also a great opportunity for me to get the
scoop on who I'm going to be facing down the
line. I've been told there are a lot of hungry
young superstars eager to impress in FCW, so I
will be making a few notes on which upcoming
stars I need to look out for."
As part of the Spring Madness Tour the first
500 fans will receive a free FCW Wrestling
Beach Ball.
FCW is the only Official Developmental territory
of World Wrestling Entertainment.
Tickets are available online at
www.fcwwrestling.com and Buddy's Home
