A twin-engine Piper Aztec with two people onboard made an emer-
gency landing shortly after noon Tuesday at the Venice Municipal
Airport when the pilot was unable to lock the nose gear in place for
landing. There were no injuries and damage was limited to the gear
and belly of the aircraft. The Venice Fire and Police departments
were at the scene during the landing.



Hostages taken


STAFF REPORT


In what appears to be a rob-
bery gone bad, Venice police
have confirmed a hostage situ-
ation at the TJ Maxx store on
U.S. 41 in Venice, according to
WWSB ABC-7 News.
Witnesses have told ABC-7
that at least two gunmen
entered the store and are hold-


ing four people hostage.
Two of the hostages were
released already, according to
witnesses.
Police will only confirm a
hostage situation.
They have the entire shop-
ping center blocked off and
the store surrounded.
No further information was

The Venice Planning Com-
mission will not be given the
opportunity to comment on
the state's latest review of the
city's draft comprehensive
plan a plan for future devel-
opment throughout the city.
Zoning and Planning Di-
rector Tom Slaughter an-
nounced the decision at Tues-
day's planning board meeting,
saying it's city council's prerog-
ative.
"Certainly you will want to
monitor some of this,"
Slaughter told commissioners.
"Overall, we're pretty satisfied
with the Department of Com-
munity Affairs' ORC Report
(Objections, recommenda-
tions and comments). It a fair
report, balanced and (was
subject to) a lot of public input
at the local and state level.
"Ultimately, council decides
procedurally on how these
things will go. There is really no
one right way to do it. Council
was looking for a way to put its
imprint on this. They have that
authority."
Smaller comp plan amend-
ments sometimes don't even
require a formal review at this


level, say planners. But this
draft is far greater in scope.
"I think it is surprising that
the ORC Report is not going to
the planning commission be-
fore council reviews it," said
land use attorney Jeff Boone.
"Especially since the last ORC
Report went to the planning
commission and this one has
so many more objections and
inconsistencies with the state
comprehensive plan."
"It's interesting you hired an
attorney already," said Plan-
ning Commission Chairman
John Osmulski to Slaughter. "It
sounds to me like you are
anticipating a fight and it's a
shame we have to hire an
attorney already."
Slaughter said it's becoming
more common to hire special-
ists to get local governments
"out of a mess."
"I have never seen this
amount of litigation," Slaught-
er said. "It's across the state.
The amount of squabbles be-
tween various (levels of gov-
ernment) ... it's becoming a lot
more in terms of litigation. In
the past you could have han-
dled this at the local level."

Slow-growth groups merge

As of this week, the Venice
Neighborhoods Coalition,

Venice's vice mayor, in 2005 to
address airport growth, has
merged with a longtime fiscal
watchdog, the Venice Taxpay-

"We didn't destroyVNC,"
said Gary Budway, VTL presi-

mittee under the umbrella of
VTL. All the paperwork is still
there but dormant. If some-
one wants to start the organi-

Corrections center


selection plans reviewed


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER


As committees for the Sarasota
County Criminal Justice Commission
continue their efforts to create a com-
munity corrections center and decide
who will manage it, finding a way to
determine the best inmate participants
is being handled by the assessment tool
work group subcommittee.
The work group met Thursday in the
county administration center to hear
from Mental Health Systems Inc. of
California, the fourth company selected
to present its proposal. The other com-
panies include Northpointe of Michigan,
Assessments.com of Washington state
and Orbis Partners of Canada.
Sarasota County's CCC plan is two-
phased. Phase I calls for a 160-bed facil-
ity to be constructed at an estimated
cost of $10.6 million. Annual operating
expenses are expected to be $2.2 million.
Phase 2 is a 96-bed addition estimat-
ed at $2.3 million. Annual operating
costs would be $3 million.
A CCC is a nonsecure transitional
facility that for low- to moderate-risk
inmates who have three to six months
left in their sentence. The facility would
not house anyone with a sex-related
charge or sex-related conviction, or
anyone convicted of arson.
The program would be available to
those who have been convicted of mis-


demeanors or Class D felonies, such as
grand theft or burglary of unoccupied
cars or buildings.
Filtering
While in the program, a resident
would be able to leave the facility to go
to work or community service and
return. The resident would be assessed
as to his needs, which could be a sub-
stance-abuse program, medical thera-
py or other programs.
Just who that inmate or resident might
be will depend on the process selected.
"(The programs) are filtering those
offenders who would be appropriate
for the community corrections center,"
Wayne Applebee, county criminal jus-
tice policy coordinator, said of the pro-
posed plans.
The process is expected to include a
separate intake assessment for each
offender. The complexity of the four
processes is about equal, and Applebee
said the cost estimates for the four
companies are close.
Thursday, MHS said it charges $9 per
assessment up to 500, $5 for 501 to
1,000, and $3 for more than 1,000
assessments. After 15,000 assessments,
according to Tammy Holwell of MHS,
her company would enter into licens-
ing-fee negotiations.
With the exception of the
Assessments.com proposal, training
is not included in the proposals.


Local air quality at issue


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

Transportation issues
were the focus for the
West Central Florida
Chairs Coordinating
Committee board mem-
bers who met Friday at
Marie Selby Botanical
Gardens, but it was a
presentation on region-
al air quality that could
be the major concern
for those assembled.
The CCC is composed
of the chairs of the
Metropolitan Planning
Organizations from Sara-
sota, Manatee, Hills-
borough, Pinellas, Polk
and Pasco counties.
An outgrowth of the
Clean Air Act, 16 monitors
for the state Department
of Environmental Protec-
tion measure harmful
ground-level ozone in
the six-county region.
Currently, all the moni-
tors show the region is
conforming with former
U.S. Environmental Pro-
tection Agency stan-
dards of 85 parts per bil-
lion of pollutants.
The EPA, in response
to scientific data indicat-
ing the need for a more

stringent cutoff and
possibly a lawsuit filed
by the American Lung
Association issued a
new cutoff at 75 ppb in
2008. The EPA currently
is reassessing this stan-
dard, according to Carl
J. Mikyska, a transporta-
tion planner for the U.S.
Department of Trans-
portation, with a final
decision due in Decem-
ber.
The elderly and chil-
dren are especially sus-
ceptible to the harmful
effects of ground-level
ozone, Mikyska said
during his presentation.
Ozone can create perma-
nent damage in lungs,
and on days of high
concentrations, asthma
attacks are more com-
mon and hospital admis-
sions are higher.
Ground ozone, a sec-
ondary pollutant, occurs
when volatile organic
compounds combine
with nitrogen oxides and
then are subjected to heat.
Nitrogen oxides can come


from power plants and
industrial boilers, or mobile
sources on and off road,
such as lawn mowers.
Lapse
However, if one of
the 16 monitors shows
ground ozone levels are
too high, then all the other
areas in the region are
considered out of com-
pliance. If that "lapse"
happens, according to
Mikyska, the consequence
would be no new projects
authorized by the USDOT,
no federal actions taken
on projects and no
amendments to Long
Range Transportation
Plans or Transportation
Improvement Programs.
Sarasota County,
while conforming to the
new standard, showed
average ranges in the 70s
for the last three years.
The monitor at Lido Park
is the closest to exceed-
ing the cutoff at 74 ppb.
Paw Park is next at 72
ppb and Jackson Road
measures 70 ppb.

Sheriff: Local accidental overdoses lead the state


BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER

Forget sunshine or paradise
- for many local law enforce-
ment officers, Florida is known
as the "pill mill" state.
The Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office announced Thursday
that Sarasota County leads the
state in the number of acciden-
tal prescription drug deaths, and
Florida is No. 1 in the nation.
Behind fatal vehicle crash-
es of which there have
been 50 so far accidental
prescription drug deaths are
the second leading cause of
death in the county, accord-
ing to Sheriff Tom Knight.
This year, sheriff's deputies
have responded to 32 acciden-
tal deaths related to illegal phar-


maceutical drug usage, he said
in a Thursday press conference.
'According to state statistics,
Sarasota County has twice the
state average of fatal overdos-
es," he said. "There have been
48 deaths total in Sarasota."
To help combat this ram-
pant problem, the sheriff's
office announced it had
obtained a $538,000 three-
year federal grant to create a
Pharmaceutical Diversion
Investigative Unit, hire two
analysts and pay for deputies.
The unit will focus on educa-
tion, enforcement and partner-
ships with physicians, pharma-
cists, community groups and
rehabilitation professionals.
"The unit intends to crack
down on prescription fraud,
reduce what is known as doc-


tor-shopping and minimize
the number of people who are
overdosing on potent pain
medications and other phar-
maceutical drugs that are
harmful and often lethal
when taken without physi-
cian direction and supervi-
sion," Knight said.
'Trail mix'
Knight said people are mix-
ing prescription drugs, drink-
ing and creating a "science
experiment in their bodies."
"You hear that kids don't
know what they are taking -
they just pick a red one, a
green one and a blue one, and
wash it down with alcohol.
They call it trail mix," said Dr.
Philip Lascelle, a volunteer on
the Pharmaceutical Diversion


Unit. "They just know the con-
coction gives them a high."
But what most don't know is
if the drugs are taken in lethal
doses, they can cause respira-
tory depression, leading to a
person dying in their sleep.
"The medical examiner is
finding combinations of pre-
scription drugs inside people
who didn't necessarily com-
mit suicide but died of an
accidental drug overdose,"
said Maj. Kevin Kenney, coun-
ty Law Enforcement division
commander.
Donny Kennard will lead
the new unit. One of its tasks
is to find pain management
doctors who prescribe med-
ication blindly.
"If you are a doctor who gets
your $250 a month per patient


to prescribe a cocktail of drugs
like oxycodone, Roxycontin for
pain and then Xanax for anxi-
ety, then you know the person
will be back for more the next
month," he said. "If you times
that by 2,000 patients, that's a
pretty good business. The
street value is about $15 per
pill, which is a good business
for the drug dealer if he can get
several doctors to prescribe
the same medications."
Kennard said the problem is
so bad here that it's spreading
to other states. He said that 300
prescription drug dealers in
Kentucky with ties to Florida
were recently arrested.
Anyone who suspects pre-
scription drug abuse can
leave anonymous tips at www.
SarasotaSheriff.org.


POLICE BEAT


'Medicine Cabinet' hailed
as a huge success
Last weekend's Operation
Medicine Cabinet was a suc-
cess, according to Sarasota
County Sheriff Tom Knight.
Nearly 350 people turned in
277 pounds of unused and
expired medications at six
locations throughout the
county.
"Venice had the most," said
Wendy Rose, SCSO Media
Liaison. "One hundred people
came to Walgreens in Venice to
turn in their medications."
Knight said it was gratifying
to hear that citizens felt
Operation Medicine Cabinet
was a great service.
"Many people commented
that they had held onto their
prescriptions for years not
knowing how to safely discard
them without negatively
impacting the environment,"
he said.
Rose said people were really
thankful they had a place to
properly dispose of the med-
ications and delighted when
they received a $5 gift card
from Walgreens for their
efforts.
"One woman said her hus-
band had died three years ago
and she didn't know what to do
with his medications," Rose
said. "Others said they didn't
want to hurt the environ-
ment."
Knight said based on the
overwhelming response,
future medication turn-in
events will be held and other
options for proper disposal
will be considered.
Officers from the Venice,
Sarasota, Longboat Key and
North Port Police departments
assisted with Operation
Medicine Cabinet.
Domestic violence
A couple's argument esca-
lated into physical violence in
the wee hours of Monday
morning.
Charles Allison Sizemore's
wife didn't want him to sleep in
their bed after the argument.
That made him angry, so he
pushed her to the floor and
kicked her, according to a
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office report.
She fought back and hit
Sizemore to escape his vio-


Sizemore


lence, then took
their child and
walked to a
friend's house
on Sunset Beach
Road. Sizemore
called 9-1-1 and
followed the vic-
tim for about 15


minutes until she went inside
her friend's house.
Sizemore told Sarasota
County Sheriff's deputies that
the victim had attacked him
first because she was upset he
was not playing video games.
Sizemore told deputies that he
put her in a "full nelson" when
she attacked him.
Sizemore, 21, 500 block
North Quincy Road, Venice,
was arrested and charged with
domestic battery. He received
no bond.
Sibling abuse
A brother who had been liv-
ing with his sister for about a
week battered her on Friday
night.
The sister told Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office
deputies that her brother,
Marc DeWitt Chase, came
home intoxicated and belliger-
ent and began causing prob-
lems. When she asked him to
leave, he became angry, grab-
bing her by the right forearm
and squeezing hard enough to
cause the victim pain. She also
reported that he grabbed her
face around the mouth,
squeezed her cheeks together
and shoved her backwards.
The sister said DeWitt then
went outside and began gath-
ering up his belongings.
The officer saw redness on
the victim's right forearm, and
arrested and charged Chase,
41, 400 block Cerromar Lane,
Venice, with domestic battery.
He received no bond.
In the patrol car, the officer
reported that Chase kept
yelling at his sister, "I'm sorry,
please drop the charges and I'll
pack my things and leave."
Chase was taken to the
North County Jail.
Arrest room
Dr. Diane Nelson's husband
was struck by a woman at
Nelson's veterinary office
Friday afternoon.
It seems Kathleen Ann


Watson needed to use the
restroom, but when she asked
the victim, he told her they
were busy working with an
animal and asked her to leave.
Watson, according to the
report, was having none of
that. She struck the victim on
the arm and kicked in the front
door glass. The victim was not
injured, but the damage to the
door is estimated at $250.
The victim requested that
Watson be prosecuted for
criminal mischief and simple
battery.
Watson, 53, of the 900 block
Sara Bay Drive, Osprey, was
arrested and charged with
battery (touch or strike) and
criminal mischief more than
$200 but less than $1,000. Her
bond was set at $1,250.
Give me money
Someone reported seeing a
white male dressed in dark
clothing attempting to open
the cash drawer at a bank ATM
on Saturday about 11 a.m.
A Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office deputy saw Ryan
Charles Lindemuth leaning
over an ATM machine. The
deputy walked up behind him
and watched him attempt to

ATM cash draw-
er with his car
keys. The deputy
asked Linde-
muth what he
w was doing.
He told the
Lindemuth deputy that he
was trying to use
the ATM but it was jammed.
Lindemuth showed the deputy
an ATM card for Wachovia
Bank. The deputy asked
Lindemuth to show him the
problem. When he put his card
in the machine it worked, but
it showed that Lindemuth had
a negative balance and could
not withdraw any money.
Another deputy checked
Lindemuth's car and saw a
pill bottle, a syringe and a sil-
ver spoon with residue on the
passenger seat. The prescrip-
tion was for methadone, but
there were two Xanax pills
inside the bottle. Lindemuth
told deputies that a friend
had given him the Xanax and
that the syringe and spoon
were not his but had been left


in his car by someone else.
Lindemuth, 27, of the 11000
block Dancing River Road,
Venice, was arrested and
charged with attempted bur-
glary of a structure (bankATM)
and possession of a controlled
substance. His bond was set at
$11,000. His car was towed.
Animal control?
A Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office Animal Control officer
was trying to deliver several
citations to Heather Geske
involving some dogs that were
causing a problem.
A deputy was called to the
scene when Animal Control
reported that Geske was unco-
operative and trying to leave
the scene.
When the deputy arrived,
Geske was driving down the
street. The officer turned on his
emergency lights and Geske
stopped her car and then
backed rapidly toward the patrol
vehicle and finally stopped.
Geske jumped out of her car
and told the deputy to make
the animal control officer
leave. The deputy asked her to
calm down.
That didn't happen.
Geske continued to yell and
swear at the officers. Then she
said she was leaving and got
back into her car. The deputy
asked her for her driver license,
which she flashed toward him,
then threw to the other side of
the car. When he asked her to
get it, Geske admitted it was
her husband's and said she
didn't have hers with her.
The deputy told her he was
going to give her a citation for
not having her driver license.
Geske attempted to close her
car door so she could leave, but
the deputy blocked it. She then
tried to put the car in drive, but
the deputy grabbed both of her
wrists to stop her and dragged
her from the car. Geske kept
resisting the officer as he
attempted to handcuff her.
Geske was finally hand-
cuffed and put in the patrol
car, where she continued to
resist and was able to twist out
of one handcuff. The officer
had to handcuff her again.
Geske, 28, 90 block of West
Seminole Drive, Venice, was
arrested and charged with
obstructing or opposing an


officer without violence, refus-
ing to sign a citation and refus-
ing to sign or accept a citation
from an animal control officer.
Her bond was set at $1,120.

North Port asserting itself in Sarasota County


BY ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER


Agriculture, especially
citrus, was king in Lake
County in Central Florida
until the late 1980s, when
a freeze killed many cit-
rus groves and much of
that land became avail-
able for new construc-
tion.
Then nearby Orange
County started building
out and people flocked to
Clermont in south Lake
County, because of its
proximity to Orlando,
nice quality of life and
low cost of home con-
struction.
As a result Clermont,
which had a population
of 6,910 in 1990 and 9,333
in 2000, according to the
U.S. Census Bureau, grew
to 23,476 in 2008, accord-
ing to the University of
Florida Bureau of Eco-
nomic and Business Re-
search.
Clermont surpassed
county seat Tavares and
Leesburg Lake Coun-
ty's "big city" in popu-
lation sometime after
2000, changing the pow-
er structure in Lake
County.
"An identity has
evolved over the past
eight or nine years that
solidified South Lake
County as a player in
Lake County that it had
not been in the past,"
said Ray San Fratello,
president of the South
Lake County Chamber of
Commerce.
"It's become it's own
miniregion. Elected offi-
cials and countywide
nonprofits are paying
more attention to what is
happening here."
Clermont's growth mir-
rored the state. Florida's
population grew from 7.2
million in 1970 to 18.8
million in 2008 (accord-
ing to the BEBR), as
many people moved to
previously underpopu-
lated regions of the state.
When federal officials
announced last year that
North Port surpassed the
city of Sarasota in popu-
lation in 2007, Sarasota
County joined a small
club: It is one of only 15
counties in the state in
which the county seat
does not have the largest
population, and one of
only three counties in
which the county seat
was passed in population
since the 2000 Census.
This status has ramifi-
cations for both the
county seats in Florida's
67 counties and their
more populated neigh-
bors. Having a county's
largest population gener-
ally means having more
- or increased repre-
sentation on countywide
or regional boards. And it
can result in more cash
for city coffers.
The list includes coun-
ties large and small. In
Pinellas County, where the
population is 938,461, ac-
cording to 2008 BEBR
data, Clearwater (110,251)
is the county seat, but St.
Petersburg (251,459) has
twice the population. In
Hendry County (east of
Lee County), where the
population is 41,216,
Clewiston has 6,887 resi-
dents, county seat La
Belle only 4,564.

North Port growth
Growth in North Port
during the early 2000s
was similar to that of
Clermont. Both were
among the state's five
fastest-growing cities
from 2000-08. North Port,
according to the BEBR,
has 56,316 residents,
compared to 55,174 in
Sarasota (2008 data). The
county's population is
393,608.
North Port officials


reacted quickly to their
new status. Earlier this
year they sought unsuc-
cessfully to secure a sec-
ond seat on the Sarasota-


Manatee Metropolitan
Planning Organization.
MPO board members
chose to wait until results
of the 2010 U.S. Census.
Last month, a convoca-
tion of governments ac-
knowledged North Port's
claim that its population
mandates a seat on the
Sarasota County Tourist
Development Council, an
advisory board that will
recommend allocations of
a little more than $10 mil-
lion in bed tax revenues.
The county commission
made the North Port ap-
pointment official Tues-
day.
North Port officials are
looking for more board
seats they can claim,
based on population,
such as a seat on the
Tampa Bay Area Regional
Transit Authority.
"We were assertive
before, but nobody was
listening," North Port
Commissioner Jim Blu-
cher said. "Now they
have to listen because
we've got everything on
our side. If you've got the
law or you've got every-
thing on your side, it
makes the negotiations
so much easier. You don't
have to hit anybody with
2x4s, where before that's
what we were trying to

do.
"Do we have a better
relationship (with other
commissions)? Absolute-
ly, and I think that will
only grow, because how
North Port goes will be
how Sarasota County
goes."
Better relations
Sarasota County Com-
missioner Shannon Staub
agrees with Blucher that
the relationship between
the city and the county,
who were embroiled in a
bitter lawsuit over vacat-
ed lots in 2004, has im-
proved.
"We definitely have
better relations between
the county and the city of
North Port," Staub said.
"The cities all among
themselves will have to
work on some issues
because they want to
have good relations and
they have mutual inter-
ests. They are in a deli-
cate spot when they take
(board) seats away from
one another."
City of Sarasota Com-
missioner Kelly Kirsch-
ner agrees.
"There is a general
understanding that all of
our communities are
interconnected in terms
of the regional econo-

my," Kirschner said. "Ult-
imately, that spirit of col-
laboration needs to
improve. As the city of
Sarasota's tourism grows,
so grows the economic
impact on the city of
North Port. We better be
in lock step with one
another."
Staub, a county com-
missioner for 12 years
who lives in South Sara-
sota County, said officials
are adjusting to North
Port's emergence.


"We as a county have
never had to deal with
another city becoming a
big city," Staub said. "We
are in a learning mode to
see what the ramifica-
tions of that are. We di-
rected our staff to see if
there are any other
boards that we should be
looking at.
"North Port is going to
be a leader in the future
because they are aspiring
to be three times the
population of the city of


Sarasota. Sarasota can
only grow vertically, and
they are not annexing."

Third Thursday Stroll in downtown Venice will feature all the usual
entertainment, shopping and dining, and will benefit the South County
Food Pantry.



Stroll to benefit



the hungry


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Bands, entertainers, happy
shoppers and generous mer-
chants plan a traditional
downtown Thursday Evening
Stroll Nov. 19 to help feed hun-
gry families in our community.
More than 54 independent
downtown merchants and
restaurants invite the public to
enjoy shopping all day and in
the evening till 8 p.m. Most
merchants will raise funds for
South County Food Pantry by
donating a percentage of their
sales or making a direct dona-
tion.
"Our Thanksgiving and
Christmas Evening Strolls with
entertainers are the most pop-
ular downtown events," said
Kathy Crisman, owner of
Dick's Shoes.
Between 6 and 8 p.m. at the
comer of Nokomis and West
Venice avenue near Holiday
Dreams & Memories, master of
ceremonies Bruno the singing
disc jockey will announce enter-
tainers at locations around
downtown.
Strolling Venice, Miami and
Nokomis avenues will be the
Venice Gondoliers Barbershop
singers. The Swinging Bridge
Bluegrass band will play out-
side Bresler's Ice Cream and
The Wan-na-bes will play
oldies and rock 'n' roll by the
Paper Pad in the 300 block of
West Venice Avenue. Musicians
will entertain at stores on West
Miami Avenue.
'All play for tips from busi-
nesspeople and shoppers,"
said Crisman.


Food drive
"Local merchants gener-
ously support charitable orga-
nizations and events during
the year in our community, but
this is the first time as a group
we will make a single dona-
tion," said Rosanne Brown, co-
owner of Venice Stationers,
and an organizer and volun-
teer for this fundraiser.
A nonprofit organization,
South County Food Pantry
began 22 years ago. Operated
by 100 volunteers, it provides
an average of $8,000 in food
donations monthly to 501
families in Venice.
Mike Gippert is vice chair of
the board and his wife, Debbie,
is office manager of the pantry.
'An emergency pantry, we
serve monthly enough gro-
ceries to last a family four
days," he said.
Based at Emmanuel Luth-
eran Church near Village on
the Isle on the island, the
pantry receives donations of
food and checks from most
local churches, some condo
associations and individuals.
The stroll is a twofold pro-
ject of giving money to feed
needy residents in the com-
munity and recognizing the
very unique shopping district
downtown said Brown.
Continuing the seasonal
theme, "Everything is waiting
for you downtown," Crisman
said many local merchants
and restaurants will continue
opening "late till 8" every
Thursday evening to benefit
visitors and residents.

Sears to open Venice store


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Venice shoppers mourned
the blue light fading away with
the closing of the Kmart Store
in Jacaranda Plaza store last
week. The good news this week
is that a new slimmer commu-
nity-oriented Sears Hometown
Store is scheduled for opening
mid-January in South Venice.
The store will occupy the
7,500 square feet former Wal-
greens location at 4181 South
Tamiami Trail in the Venice
Village Shoppes. A unique re-
tailing concept store, it will


provide a wide range of fitness
equipment, tools, appliances,
electronics, lawn and garden
merchandise offered by Sears
Roebuck & Co.
Clif Burritt, wife Becky, sons
Joel and Jacob and seven
employees will operate the
store. A pastor for 20 years,
Burritt headed a church in
Traverse City, Mich.
For 15 years he owned two
electrical appliance stores in
Indiana.
He was the office manager
and pastor for Farley Funeral
Homes in Venice prior to
opening his first Sears Home-


town Store at Beall's Shopping
Center in Englewood 15 months
ago.
Chicago-based Sears Roe-
buck & Co acquired Kmart in
2005 and operates more than
3,400 stores in 50 states gener-
ating $50 billion revenue an-
nually.
"It is the third major store to
open here," said Harvey Jan-
dreau, general manager of the
Venice Village Shoppes, where
Aaron's Appliances and Dis-
count Mattress have recently
opened.

Morgan's opens at Osprey Inn


ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


Co-owner Paul Martin
boasts that Morgan's, a new
full-service restaurant open
from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., will
serve the best English break-
fast, with sausage "bangers"
and thick bacon, starting this
Friday.
Morgan's fronts the Osprey
Inn Motel, 1660 South Tami-
ami Trail, Osprey, and marks
the completion of stage one of
the complete motel renova-
tion.
Martin has hired chef Scott
Mullen, who has worked at the
Lakewood Ranch MacAlisters
and Mattison's in Port Char-
lotte. With 12 new employees,
he will operate the new 70-seat
open-plan restaurant and an
open-style cafe with an addi-
tional 20 seats.
Following breakfast, the cof-
fee shop will serve Lavazza cof-
fee and other specialties in-
cluding sandwiches, baguet-
tes, pannini, soups and salads.
The dinner menu is American
continental cuisine including
seafood, chicken, steak, pastas
and pizzas.
Morgan's will host a Thanks-
giving jazz buffet in the new
ballroom banquet hall, where
a jazz pianist will entertain.
RC models
Radio-control model en-
thusiasts will enjoy meeting

it with her son for the past
seven years, sold the cafe and
catering business last week to
Hungarians Eva and Zoltan
Seres. It is understood the
Seres will retain the name and
menu.
"It is probably time for me
to retire, but I am going to
assist my son and daughter-in-
law at the Lucky Dog Diner,"
said Laskowski.
The Venice Verandah Inn

lored NLP classes: learning to
practice hypnosis, weight loss,
stop smoking, a writer's work-

spots are along the Intracoastal behind
Venice High School, near the Venice
Train Depot and near the bridges. Many
viewers bring picnic baskets along with
their lawn chairs or blankets.
To match previous years' numbers,
more boats and volunteers are needed,
Osmulski said. There usually are 40
boats in the parade.
Boats can be any size or type, sail or
power. The waterway is 100 feet wide and
9 feet deep. Boat owners use generators to
power light and sound systems. Many
enter more than one parade. The Sarasota
Boat Parade is one week later, Dec. 12.
"We need this parade for everybody,
including the youth," Osmulski said.
"This community has to recognize its
youth, too. They were young once."
Boaters pay $15 per boat to enter the
parade plus the cost of their decora-
tions. Winning boats in each class go
home with plaques. Proceeds fund the


SUN NEWSPAPERS 7A


community's youth boating program
and scholarships.
In the past, parade sponsors have
provided most of the funding. This year,
there are fewer sponsors because of the
economy, Osmulski said. He hopes that
viewers will donate to Venice Christmas
Boat Parade, which is a 501(c)3 not-for-
profit organization, entitling donors to
a tax deduction.
"The parade is always the first
Saturday in December," Osmulski said.
"There's nothing saying that someone
can't go to watch the parade and then
send a donation of $5."
Osmulski is serving his fifth year as
parade chair. Jim Beach was chair for
eight years and Taylor MacPherson
chaired the event for two years.
Go to www.venicechristmasboatpa

time and the address for donations.
Boat owners and other volunteers and
donors may call Osmulski at 809-8100.

MERGE from Page 1A


a press release announcing the merger.
She serves on the city's Bond Oversight
Committee with Budway.
Budway said the organizations
share many of the same members and
political views, and it was becoming
redundant to have separate organiza-
tions.
It didn't help that last year, for the
first time, VNC imposed a membership
fee of $15 per person or $25 per cou-
ple. Members balked at the notion of
paying dues, according to Budway.
Herb Levine, a longtime president
of the VTL, resigned the office only
months ago, paving the way for
Budway to take the helm.
Credibility
Budway's said his goal is to achieve
a level of credibility previously enjoyed
by the Venice Taxpayers League.
To do that he's seeking better coop-
eration within the ranks.
"VNC started jumping on the air-
port and a lot of subjects. They spread
themselves thin and started overlap-
ping with the Taxpayers League argu-
ing over the same stuff," Budway said.
"Sometimes people speaking on VNC's
behalf... it was not what the VNC
(directors) agreed to. OrVTL would go
another way."
After successfully positioning him-
self as president, Budway made it a
priority to fold the VNC into VTL, part-
ly as a means of taming some of the
vitriolic language coming out of its
membership.
"We aren't going to put up with
that," Budway said.
Budway said he hopes to foster a
less adversarial relationship with city
hall and other civic groups, like the
Venice Area Chamber of Commerce.
"The days of the VTL and the cham-
ber throwing knives at each other are
over," said Budway. "Let's see if we can
resolve some of these issues. So far
nobody had stepped up to the plate.
Time will tell. I don't have a crystal
ball."
John Ryan, president and CEO of
the Venice Area Chamber of
Commerce, said he and Budway met a
few months ago after Budway first
took over, but the dialogue subsided.
"There have been no formal invita-
tions on behalf of either group to have
any discussions," Ryan said.
A good first step, Ryan said, would
be for VTL to make public its member-
ship list.
"Our membership is published for
all to see," he said. "I hope that is
something we will see."
"Businesses contribute a large per-
centage of the taxes" that are the focus


of the Taxpayers League, he said. "That
should be part of the conversation -
looking at what taxpayers and busi-
nesses have in common. That is a rea-
son for us to, some time, sit together at
the table."
Newly elected Council Member
Emilio Carlesimo, who in effect boy-
cotted the last two annual VTL/VNC
candidate forums, said he'd be willing
to sit down again with Budway.
"We have had good conversations
and reached some understandings"
recently, Carlesimo said. "And then I
see what he has written on blogs. It
doesn't seem to match. It's a matter of
trust."



"The days of the Venice
Taxpayers League and the
Venice Area Chamber of
Commerce throwing knives
at each other are over."
VTL President Gary
Budway


'Backing away'
"This election people got thrown
around a little," Budway said. "I am
backing away from the political stuff.
This last 'meet the candidate' thing
was screwed up again. And the VTL
newsletter (an election mailer that vio-
lated state law) ... that burned me a lit-
tle.
"You know, you have certain prob-
lems when transitioning. Next year, the
VTL is not going to be a political orga-
nization. The VTL's political action
committee will be independent from
the VTL. I will make sure of that."
Ted Koszarski, who lost to
Carlesimo, will take over as chair of the
VNC Committee.
"The highest priority of the VNC
(Committee) will be the neighbor-
hoods," Koszarski said. "What we're
looking to do at this moment is gather
together the concerns of the various
neighborhoods and articulate those on
the Web site."
Koszarski, who has a background in
marketing and public relations, said
the organization might even host
some kind of polling feature on its Web
site or establish a phone hotline "so
people can call in and express what's
happening in their neighborhoods."

anticipating a fight at all," said Sue
Lang, council liaison to the board. "We
want to do exactly the opposite -
avoid a fight, and address ORC objec-
tions. That's why we hired one of the
best people."
Replacements?
Over the past two years Osmulski
has challenged many attempts by
council to control growth as unneces-
sary in light of the recession and dam-
aging to the city's recovery.
In 2008 he sought a seat on city
council but lost to Kit McKeon in a
three-way race.
After a year's worth of workshops
and public hearings on the revised
comp plan, Osmulski predicted it
would result in even more urban
sprawl. DCA agreed with Osmulski in
its Oct. 25 ORC report. The city has 120
days to address that concern and oth-
ers.
The verbal sparring between Os-
mulski and the mayor, which spilled
over onto the city e-mail system at
times, could be coming to an end.
Terms are up for Osmulski and Jerrel
Towery on Dec. 31. The term of Janice
Fawn ends Jan. 31, 2010, and Jim
Bennett's seat, vacated after he won a
seat on city council, will be filled at the
next council meeting.
It gives Mayor Ed Martin a unique
opportunity to fill four of seven plan-

months.
City hall scuttlebutt has Towery
being reappointed, Osmulski and Fawn
replaced, and Marshall Happer, recent-
ly appointed to the Architectural
Review Board, reassigned to fill Ben-
nett's seat.
Commissioner Greg Shanika made a
cautionary plea to the mayor about the
upcoming appointments.
"I am proud of the people we have
now," Shanika said. "I think council did
an excellent job with its (previous)
appointments. The appointees were
good and served fairly and for the most
part served unbiasedly. I hope the new
appointees are open and fair and (do
not have) any preconceived notions
about about growth or no-growth, air-
port or no-airport. I think that's very
important."
"It's important not to have NIMBYs,"
Osmulski added. "You are not appoint-
ed to look at not-in-my-back-yard.
You're appointed to look out for the
entire city."

gotiations between the
Orioles, the county and
the city of Sarasota for
the spring training site of
Ed Smith Stadium.
Previously, the two
nonprofits claimed the
negotiations that result-
ed in a $31.2 million
agreement to renovate
the stadium violated the
state Sunshine Law.
Both organizations are
represented by Andrea
Flynn Mogensen, the
Sarasota attorney who
successfully sued the city
of Venice for Sunshine
Law violations and was
awarded more than
$720,000 in attorney's
fees.
The case has cost the
city more than $1.3 mil-
lion.
Currently at issue are
public records regarding
the baseball negotiations
that are stored in a com-
puter Barrett said cras-
hed Oct. 5. In an e-mail to
Michael Barfield, the
consultant to Mogensen
who requested the rec-
ords, Barrett wrote, 'After
sending it to an industry
specialist they were able
to retrieve some of the
hard-drive document
files, but Microsoft Out-
look was unrecoverable."
According to Barfield,
the citizens groups want
a judge to allow them to
have a forensic expert
examine Barrett's com-
puter hard drive and
retrieve e-mails Barrett
says are lost. First, how-
ever, a judge will have to
review the complaint
and, if he agrees with it,
issue a show-cause order
as to why it should not be
granted.


'Comfortable'
Barfield already has
received thousands of
public documents from
the county regarding the
issue.
Reached late Friday,
Deputy County Admin-
istrator Dave Bullock said
he has not seen the law-
suit. Bullock has been the
lead negotiator for the
county with the Orioles
organization.
"(Sarasota County
has) complied with every
record request and turn-
ed over hundreds of
thousands many of
those sent by Mr. Bar-
rett," Bullock said.
Bullock said County
Attorney Stephen De-
Marsh will handle the
county's part in the law-
suit. DeMarsh could not
be reached for comment.
However, DeMarsh
said earlier of a possible
Sunshine Law violation:
"I am cognizant of the
public interest in the
spring training agree-
ment entered into be-
tween the County Com-
mission and the Balti-
more Orioles this past
July, and I am comfort-
able in stating that the
actions taken by the
county commission in


approving the spring
training agreement with
the Baltimore Orioles
were taken during an
advertised public meet-
ing in accordance with
Florida law."
Barfield said the law-
suit is only the first by the
citizens groups. He said
he expects others to be
filed in the next week to
10 days.
In other baseball news
Friday, Bullock said
Barton Malow, the com-
pany that lost its bid to be
the construction manag-
er at-risk for the stadium
renovation, is protesting
the county's decision.
Barton Malow is the
company that oversaw
the construction of Ed
Smith Stadium in 1989.
Thursday, Barton Mal-
ow tied Turner Con-
struction/Halfacre Con-
struction companies in
the ranking for the job.
However, Turner/
Halfacre won the bid
because it qualifies as a
local Sarasota County
company and state stat-
ute mandates that in
such cases, the bid be
awarded to the local
company.

they are pulling back.
The latest revision would have
extended protection for those 12
grand tree species, including Amer-
ican elm, laurel and live oaks, syca-
more, hickory and slash pine. Right
now, a county permit is required to
remove these trees when they reach a
certain size and maturity roughly
40-50-year-old trees. The baby grand
ordinance would have required per-
mits for younger, smaller trees a
25-30-year-old live oak, for instance,
with a trunk diameter of 18 inches.
After getting the go-ahead from the
commission well more than a year
ago, the tree committee and county
staff developed the new classification
and protection ordinance. It seemed
to be no big deal, until Osprey devel-
oper Henry Rodriguez caught wind of
it a few weeks ago and kicked off the
backlash.
The ordinance, as written, had flex-
ibility. It had conditions like safety
- for removal. It allowed cutting "if


protecting the tree would unreason-
ably prevent development." The pri-
mary aim was to avoid cutting down
some three-decade-old trees or mini-
mize the loss.
County staff also estimated the
impact would be relatively slight: 95
permits per year. Overall, it seemed to
be a small, positive step to preserve
the next generation of grand trees.
There were some specific prob-
lems with the ordinance as written, so
it made perfect sense to send it back
for revision. Maybe the criteria were
too strict. We also agree that other
voices might have been included in
the process earlier.
But the arguments from oppo-
nents often spiraled from specifics
about tree protection into general
broadsides against government regu-
lation, etc. In this political and eco-
nomic climate, it looks like environ-
mental concerns, and the trees we all
profess to love, will get lip service, but
no real hugs.


To 'B' or not to 'B'


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


The new city council met to
talk with its airport consulting
group, DY and Associates, to
see where to go with the air-
port, which has been going
nowhere. The meeting was a
productive one with many in-
teresting ideas some differ-
ent, some a rehash. Finally,
there was some movement
forward.
There have been a couple of
challenges; some are real and
many are personal. There is a
group of people that have had
as their mission to shrink the
airport. That is behind every-
thing.
That said, there are some
real problems with the Airport
Layout Plan that are concern-
ing. One is that the proposed
safety zone extends over some
homes in Gulf Shores. Those
homeowners want to ensure
their homes are not in danger
of being taken, and no one has
given them that assurance.
The other problem is that por-
tions of the golf course and
structures are in the same situ-
ation. The driving range in
particular and a few holes are
directly in the way.
Coming out of the meeting
were some interesting new
ideas. One is to move back
runway 13-31 toward the In-
tracoastal and South Venice to
ensure the safety zone no
longer encompasses some
houses. That may eliminate
the festival uses on that side of
the airport but it is too early to
know about that. Nonetheless,
this is an interesting concept.
The runway could remain the
same length, just be moved
southeast. DY also discussed
layout changes to the golf
course.
The anti-growth-of-the-air-
port majority on council has
charged DY to go to the FAA to
see if the airport can be classi-
fied a "B" airport, which would
restrict the size of the aircraft
using it. DY has made aircraft
counts for seven months -
two in season and five out of
season that showed we are
on the line between being a
"B" and a "C" airport under
FAA standards. Counts done a
year or so earlier showed that
traffic went done this year, I
assume because of the reces-
sion. The hobby of flying is
expensive and expensive hob-
bies get curtailed in tough
times.
So, aircraft counts taken in


the worst economic times in
more than a generation should
be no more valid than the
allegedly inflated numbers
that the Hansen Group devel-
oped. In short, it should still be
a "C" airport. This is a rich as-
set that helps the economic
engine of our community. I
would be surprised if the FAA
felt any differently. If it says it
should be "C," I hope that is
the end of that discussion.
DY and the council ex-
plored a hybrid approach that
would be half "B" and half "C."
That is, one runway would be
rated "B" to help resolve issues
with the houses in Gulf Shores.
That may lessen the projected
costs. With that, everyone wins
something.
Now, having been a flight
student, I know the impor-
tance of wind direction to
landing and wonder if forcing
some takeoffs and landings to
a particular runway might be
less safe. Also, having one kind
of airplane using one runway
and the other kind the other
seems a little more dangerous.
I profess to be no expert on
this.
I applaud the new thinking
and am pleased to see some
forward direction. I personally
think the question DY needs to
get answered by the FAA is not
"B" versus "C" but exactly what
we are allowed to have in the
Airport Layout Plan as excep-
tions. This airport has been
laid out and operated in this
configuration for a long time.
Why not longer? There are air-
ports all over this country that
have homes and businesses in
safety zones and I would think
we could too.
It seems such a waste of
time to guess what the FAA
wants; wouldn't it be good if
we would ask what allowances
it could live with? In any case, if
the FAA would give us some
guidelines it would hasten the
process of getting the airport
issues settled. Otherwise, we
are just playing time-consum-
ing games.

Got an ax to grind

Travesty. I would like to know who was behind the travesty
that happened this week in the city of Venice downtown, in
regard to the cutting down of the 70- to 80-foot Norfolk Island
pine tree that was in perfect health, so they could plant an easi-
er-to-decorate 20-foot tree, which could have been placed any-
where in Centennial Park. I don't understand the green philoso-
phy, the eco-friendly city that Venice claims to be. Why cut down
a live tree to plant a 15-to-20-foot tree? Rumor has it that our
council, our fabulous council, was behind this. I'd also like to
know how this tree was purchased. Was it purchased with city
money or was it donated to council or how did this all come
about? It was pretty hush-hush. Nothing was in the papers and
they did it first thing in the morning so no one could probably
protest. Again, what a travesty. What a sad moment. One of the
most beautiful and one of the biggest trees the original city
of Venice Christmas tree, which had stood there for more than 30
years.
EDITOR'S NOTE: See Mayor Ed Martin's letter in response to an ear-
lier Let'em Have It call about the new tree on the following page.
Public Works and Utilities General Manager Len Bramble told city
council last month that the Norfolk Island pine was split and was
unsafe.


Needs results. Some per-
son said they were going to
vote "no" on the next school
surtax apparently upset with
some principle. There are
other reasons to vote "no," as
only a small percentage of the
1-mill referendum millions go
to the students, as anybody
can see looking at the Operat-
ing/General Fund Budget.
Most of it is for ongoing big
salaries and benefits. Also, the
many promises of the Norris

NeXt Generation Learning
Plan have not been kept, as we
still have an achievement gap
and drop-outs continue, as
reported by the VGS in June. In
addition, everybody else is
having to control spending
and budgets; long overdue,
this Sarasota school district
does the same. Everybody
wants the students to have a
good education, but until the
school board and district are
able to produce substantial
achievement results, and since
they have not with the past
tens of extra millions in local
referendum surtaxes, there's
no reason to vote again in
March 2010 for another four-

When you get to be my age, and
we've done so much, and my
husband has served his coun-
try, I think our government

the people who fought in World

"Why doesn't the government

Bad examples. It appears
that teachers are setting poor
examples for their students.
Back in March, two teachers,
coaches and students were
involved in very serious acci-
dents on 1-75. They attended a
party and the SUV rolled over
on the way home and one of
the coaches was thrown out of
the truck and killed. I see in the
paper today that the driver was
charged with being three times
over the legal limit and charg-
ed with DUI. Teachers and
coaches are always discussing
with students about drinking
and driving or driving without
a seat belt, but yet you see this
happening and they're the
ones setting the example. The
vast majority of teachers don't
drink and drive and do wear
their seat belts. Students are
especially influenced by
coaches. Students think it's OK
to go with the flow and drive
and drink or not wear seat
belts. Teachers must set the
example at all times.
Long-gone train. We got rid
of our railroad, but Buffett just

was losing the circus because
we didn't upgrade. Now we've

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS

Tree is council's gift to city

Editor:
Monty Andrews, chair of the Parks and Recreation
Advisory Board and a leader in making Blalock Park
into an arboreteum, another valuable service byVABI,
made the suggestion to me for a Christmas tree. It
seemed like a great idea, particularly tying it into to
the Holiday Parade. Having a "lighting" of the Venice
tree tied to the parade and MainStreet decorations
would surely be popular.
I mentioned it to Kit McKeon, council's liaison to
the parks board, and they had discussions there,
although I do not know the details. I also mentioned
to Monty that MainStreet folks felt it would be great to
have it in Centennial Park. He liked the idea of
Blalock, and I believe we will have both.
Kit brought the idea to council, which approved
the Centennial Park location. Kit suggested each
council member contribute $100 for the $700 tree.
Council agreed it would be our gift to the city. Monty's
original suggestion has been recognized publicly dur-
ing council discussion and is much appreciated.
Decisions on location and planting were deter-
mined by city staff and the tree is in place for an offi-
cial lighting this season.
I believe the annual lighting will be another won-
derful Venice celebration.
Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all.

Britton's furnished
a good time
Editor:
My husband and I had
the pleasure of attending
a social outing hosted by
a local business on a
recent weekend. Billed as
a client appreciation
event, Britton's Furnish-
ings accomplished some-
thing very significant dur-
ing these difficult eco-
nomic times in our com-
munity: It brought music,
food, laughter and fun -
in short, good fellowship
- at a family-style picnic


at the beach.
At a time when most
any business could justi-
fiably be negative, it
chose instead to be up-
lifting.
It chose to highlight
the bright side and make
all its clients and friends
feel good about living
here in our slice of par-
adise.
During trying eco-
nomic times it's easy to
forget we are still in par-
adise. To the Brittons I
say, thank you for the
enjoyable reminder. If all
the leaders in our com-


munity will adopt your
attitude and spirit, we'll
all be the better for it.

Oh, to be 10 once again


MIKE BILLINGTON
GUEST COLUMNIST


Josep Amill already
has seen a fair amount of
the world.
He's been to Barcelona
and Malaga, for example.
He's been to Firenze, New
York and Philadelphia.
He's ridden the rides at
Disney World and been
out West.
Given that, you might
think he'd be pretty jaded
at this point in his life.
You'd be wrong, how-
ever, because Josep is 10
years old and every day is
still an adventure for him.
That was never more evi-
dent than when he and
his mother recently zip-
ped into Southwest
Florida for a long week-
end.
Instead of a hotel, they
opted to stay in a small
bed & breakfast in Venice
within walking distance
of the beach.
Their first night here
they spent on the Venice
pier.
Josep discovered sharks'
teeth there and learned
from some friendly folks
that some of those teeth
came from sharks that
died about a million years


ago.
He also watched peo-
ple catching fish in nets
that they flung from the
pier into the inky dark
waters below. He was
astounded when one of
them pulled up a small
squid and he watched
with eyes as big as
saucers as the fisherman
untangled its tentacles
from the cords of his net
and then threw it back
into the Gulf.
Saturday he went to
Stump Pass, where he
found more sharks' teeth
and some really cool
shells. He swam for hours
and caught a wave or two
on a boogie board.
He saw brown peli-
cans soaring 4 or 5 feet
over his head and
watched two of them
dive into the water for
their afternoon meals.
He watched tiny shore-
birds on pipestem legs
sprinting up and down
the beach and even tried
to catch a couple.
No luck. Too fast. No
problem. Fun anyway.
Sunday, before they
flew home, Josep and his
mom went to the Ring-
ling Museum in Sarasota.
There, he spent an hour
looking at the trains,
tents and tiny figures of
circus performers.
He watched the tiny
trapeze artists swinging
on their tiny bars and
counted the number of
railroad cars on the mod-
el circus train.
Josep, who speaks
Catalan as well as English
and Spanish, could not


find the words to ade-
quately describe how
cool it all was, so he set-
tled for that single word.
"Cool."
Josep's visit reminded
me of something that it's
easy to forget in these
high-speed days: The
world is truly a magical
place, full of wonder.
At 62, I don't always
take the time I should to
stare open-mouthed at
dolphins in the Gulf,
soaring pelicans and re-
gal great blue herons.
I should, because those
of us lucky enough to live
in Southwest Florida are
surrounded by creatures
both great and small with
the power to amaze.
Anyone who has ever
watched a group of white
pelicans herding fish into
a slowly shrinking circle
can attest to that. Anyone
who has ever seen an alli-
gator swimming lazily in
a creek or a canal knows
what I mean.
We also are surround-
ed by places muse-
ums, botanical gardens
and parks, to name a few
- that are equally spe-
cial.
Those lucky enough to
still be 10 years old sel-
dom miss the opportuni-
ty to be amazed by the
world its creatures,
people and places.
I've missed too many
of those opportunities.
I'm going to try not to
miss too many more.

The sheepshead are start-

This is the time of the year
they can steal bait without
your even knowing there was
a nibble.
I usually do not catch
many sheepies in November
and December but when I do
catch one, it is usually a nice
one. Local bait shops are
reporting a few sheepies and
pompano being caught at
Caspersen Beach and in the
Intracoastal.
"Bubba" reports fishing
has been rather slow at the
Venice Fishing Pier but a few
flounder, jacks and Spanish
mackerel are being caught.
The jetty has been off and on.
Mahi Mac's Bait and Tackle,
1030 U.S. 41 Bypass, will have
a grand opening from 6 a.m.
to 6 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 21.
Door prizes and many spe-
cials will be available. I will be
in attendance from 10 a.m. to
4 p.m. For more information,

VOLLEYBALL CLASS 5A-REGION 3 FINAL





STATE-BOUF

BY PERRY 0. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR0,aa &,


At the beginning of the sea-
son, the Venice High volleyball
team designed their own T-
shirts for the season.
After talking it out, it was
simple and to the point: black
T-shirt with Venice volleyball
on the front and 11-19-09 on
the back.
The date is significant as it is
the day of the Class 5A state
championship match.
The Lady Indians are just
one step away after sweeping
Clearwater, 25-9, 25-21, 25-23,
to claim their sixth regional title
and advancing to the team's
fourth state final four.
Venice (22-8) plays Tal-
lahassee Leon (24-5) in the
state semifinals at 6 p.m.
Wednesday, Nov. 18, at The
Lakeland Center.
This is the first time in four
years that Venice has won the
regional final.
"The last three years we've
lost the regional final and we
were sick of it," said Venice
senior setter Taylor Capasso.
"He wanted us to think of our T-
shirts because usually he
makes our T-shirts. We decided
as a team that was our goal to
play on Nov. 19. We wanted to
take that pressure. We like it."
"This whole season has
been about them," said Venice
coach Brian Wheatley "They
developed their own handbook
this year so we really wanted
them to take ownership in
what we are doing here. They
came up with that motto (on
the T-shirt)."
Venice silenced the raucous
Clearwater fans at the start by
scoring nine of the first 10
points including eight off the
serve of Autumn Duyn. The
Lady Indians set the tone at the
beginning as senior Morgan
Shattuck got a block and two
kills in three of the first five
points. Senior Emily Daniels
notched three kills in the scor-
ing onslaught.
Two of the points were kept
alive off digs by Capasso, who
finished with a team-high 15
digs total, and senior libero
Dorothy Rahal.
Venice cruised in the first
game and led 19-5 at one point.

scored the next two points on a
service error and ace by
Capasso. The Lady Tornadoes
(17-10) got within a point but
no closer as an unforced error
gave Venice a 2-0 advantage.
"Our kids just made big

two and three were close all the
way and we just talked about
separating the gap as the game
got longer, and they did."
At 2-2 in the third game,

run to take a 11-4 lead thanks
to two kills and a block by mid-

"Taylor is one of the hearts

Years of soccer pay off


for Venice kicker Carlin


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


For the last 13 years, Venice's Joey
Carlin has been kicking soccer balls.
So, Venice head coach John Peacock
asked the 17-year-old, who has never
kicked a football, to be an integral part
of the football team.
"I knew he had a strong leg when he
came out," said Peacock. "We knew if
we worked with him we could get
something done."
After a rocky start, the 5-foot-ll,
135-pound junior has stepped up and
become a vital part of Venice's offense
and special teams.
Carlin is second on the Indians in
scoring with 51 points after connecting


on 4-of-5 field goals,
including a long of 41
yards and making 39-of-46
extra points. Of the seven
misses, three weren't his
fault.
In the beginning of his
football career, Carlin
Carlin struggled as he missed
two PATs in the spring
game against Naples then followed it

ter on national television.

of setting up and once the blockers
are there, it's pretty easy to read
where the hitters are going to go
because the blockers take away an
area and you get the other area."
Venice maintained its cushion and
led 24-19 before the Lady Tornadoes
scored four consecutive points to get
within, 24-23. However, junior Payton
Herschberger's seventh kill of the day
ended the match in 67 minutes.
After the match, Wheatley sur-
prised the team with final four T-
shirts.
"I didn't tell anybody," Wheatley
said about the T-shirts. "It's confi-
dence. Life is not about the number
of breaths you take but the one's that
take your breath away. This is defi-
nitely one of those moments. I'm
very proud of these girls. They've
been working very hard for a number


of years. It's very exciting to finally
win the region title and get back to
Lakeland."
"I know we are not supposed to
talk about winning beforehand but I
already knew we were going to win,"
said senior libero Dorothy Rahal. "It's
the idea that we prepare like we are in
second place and we play like we are
in first.
"All our kids did a great job," said
Wheatley "They played loose and
executed. We wanted Clearwater to
come in and play their best match of
the year because we knew we were
going to do the same."
Allen ended with five kills and two
blocks. Duyn had 11 digs of the
team's 50 digs while Rahal added
eight digs.

adjusted," said Carlin. "Now it's easy. It
is just a 20-yard kick."
"I guess the big thing was for him
to square the football on his foot so it
goes straight," said Venice kicking
coach Bryan Bryson. "He knew what
he was doing wrong and he corrected
it himself."
"I think the rush of the defense had a
lot to do with it," said Peacock, who
asked him to be part of the team in
weight lifting class. "This being his first
time and being nervous. He was a little
bit hesitant but he definitely got over
that."
Carlin and the Indians closed out the
regular season with a 9-1 record includ-
ing a nine-game winning streak and are
preparing for the Class 5A-Region 3
quarterfinal against St. Petersburg on
Friday at Powell-Davis Stadium.
Carlin admitted to being a little
afraid of the coaches and noticed how
much different being on the football
team is.
"It's much different," said Carlin. "It's
a lot more serious. For soccer you don't
have to show up until right before the
match. Football you have to show up
after school before a (7:30 p.m.) game."
"Not ever playing football or know-
ing a lot of people and not knowing
what to expect, I'm sure it was a big
adjustment for him," said Peacock. "I
think he has adjusted well."
"There is just a certain spot in kick-
ing a football," said Carlin. "You have to
get it up in the air instead of kicking on
top of it which causes a line drive and
that's no good."
Peacock stuck with Carlin despite
the early season troubles.
"He performed in practice and I
knew he had the leg," said Peacock. "I
knew he could do it. I knew it was just
going to take a little time to get com-
fortable and make those kicks. He


made a field goal against Booker and
that really boosted his confidence."
"Once he hit a couple of extra points
his confidence boosted," said Bryson.
Against Southeast, Carlin kicked
field goals of 35 and 41 yards then one
of most memorable kicks of his young
career occurred against unbeaten
Charlotte.
Carlin kicked the eventual winning
points with a 37-yard field goal on a bad
hold.
"I just kicked it out of hands really,"
said Carlin. "He didn't have it on the tee
yet. It actually got blocked and still
went through barely."
Did Carlin ever see himself as a
kicker?
"I thought about it before but I just
didn't like football really," said Carlin.
He's enjoying himself and expects to
return next year for his senior season.
In addition to kicking extra points
and field goals, Carlin has been a huge
asset in sending his kickoffs into the
end zone.
"He's kicked the ball in end zone
which is huge for us because we've
never had anybody that's been able to
do that," said Peacock. "Kicking in the
end zone is huge for our defense."
"It is big," said Bryson. "Starting at
the 20-yard line is better than the 35. It's
three or four more plays which some-
thing could happen a fumble or inter-
ception. It's a lot easier to go 60 yards
than 80 yards."
"I think there are three phases to the
game and if you can win two, you will
most likely win the game," said Peacock
about the importance of special teams.
'Good football team'
St. Petersburg will be a test for the
Indians as the Green Devils are ranked
No. 8 in the state and have a potent
running attack and a defense which


CLASS 5A-REGION 3 QUARTERFINAL


ST. PETERSBURG
Green Devils
When: 7:30 p.m., Friday, Nov. 20
Where: Powell-Davis Stadium, Venice
On the Air: Radio -The Beach 98.9 FM.
Outlook: St. Petersburg: The Green Devils (9-1)
are coming off its fourth straight 40-point victory
with a 41-12 win over Dunedin ... Running backs
Malik Wilson and Ben Sams, who run out of the
Wing-T offense, combined for 160 yards and four
TDs ... Wilson leads team with 676 yards rushing
and 11 TDs while Sams had 428 yards and nine
TDs ... QB David Jones had thrown for 412 yards
with six TDs ... The Green Devils have outscored
opponents, 377-121 ... Offense has average 274
yards a game ... The defense has four shutouts ...
Opponents have a 42-58 combine record ... First
time in playoffs since 2006 and seventh time in
school history ... Have lost the previous five times
in first round of playoffs ... Haven't won a postsea-
son game since taking second in Class 3A in
1984 ... Never met Venice in postseason but


VENICE
Indians
played in regular season in early 80s.
Venice: The Indians (9-1) were off last week ...
Over last two years, Venice has a 19-1 regular-sea-
son record ... Have outscored opponents, 382-148
... Offense averages 386 yards a game ... QB Trey
Burton has completed 111 of 183 passes for
1,872 yards with 18 TDs and one interception ...
Over last three weeks, Burton is 50 of 67 for 767
yards and eight touchdowns ... Burton also has
rushed for 778 yards and 22 TDs ... Josh Boyle is
second-leading rusher with 474 yards... Bo
Ceravolo, Beckett Wales and Josh Boyle have com-
bined for 82 catches and 1,476 yards ... Defense,
led by a huge line, only gives up 238 yards a game
... Opponents have a 58-40 combined record and
five opponents are playoff bound ... Venice's
turnover ratio is +20 with 12 interceptions and 16
fumble recoveries ... This is Venice 12th time in the
postseason and seventh out of last nine years.
Prediction: Venice 35, St. Petersburg 14


has produced four shutouts.
"They are a good football team," said
Peacock. "If you are 9-1 (record) in the
state of Florida you are a good football
team regardless of who you are playing."
The Green Devils run the Wing-T
offense and run the ball mostly as they
have rushed for 2,249 yards this year.
They have only passed for 490 yards.
Seniors MalikWilson, Ben Sams and
junior Rashad Lewis have combined
for 1,315 yards and 23 touchdowns.
"They remind me of a little how
Venice used to be with running the ball
and trying to dominate the line of scrim-
mage," said Peacock. "They are happy
with four yards then line up for second
(down) and six (yards) and run again."
Peacock knows tackling will be key


to winning.
"We can't let a three-yard gain turn
into a 12-yard gain," said Peacock. "We
have to get off the field in three downs.
Two years ago, Venice lost to Cape
Coral, 27-10 in the opening round of
the playoffs.
"I don't think we are in the same sit-
uation in 2007 or last year," said
Peacock. "We lost Dri (ton injury) going
into last year's playoffs. We built that
offense around Dri and Trey (Burton).
Dri goes down and we never kind of
established our identity after that. This
year we have our identity established
on offense and we are playing very
good on defense."

Venice High School tree huggers gear up to help environment

BY CAITLIN GREENE
SUN
CORRESPONDENT


Kaitlin Griffith won
the election for senior
vice president of the Tree
Hugger Society at Venice
High School by a land-
slide.
Griffith, who wants to
major in environmental
science after graduation,
knows the importance of
environmental aware-
ness.
"It's important to in-
spire an active interest in
saving the environment
to kids because it will be a
major issue later in our
lives," she said.
The Tree Hugger So-
ciety is the name of the
former Environmental
Club atVHS, led by Glenn
Compton. More than 75
students came to the first
meeting, held two weeks
ago.
The society has four
projects going on, all
started by Tree Hugger
leaders.


"Everyone seems
very supportive
of our society
and what we are
trying to do in
our school and
for the environ-
ment. The school
staff has been
great to work
with us on these
projects."
Fred Freeman,
co-president and
founder of the
Tree Hugger
Society at Venice
High School



The first is a plan to
help the recycling pro-
gram throughout the
school. Classrooms cur-
rently have red recycling
bins for paper, but no
place to recycle bottles
and cans. Boxes are being
distributed to classrooms
and will be emptied by
society members weekly
to be taken to recycling
centers.
The next project to
raise money for the
Make-A-Wish Founda-
tion is writing letters to
Santa. For every stamped
envelope, Macy's depart-
ment store will donate a
dollar to the Make-A-
Wish Foundation.
The final project is a
food and school supply
collection for victims of
.the tsunami in Samoa.
Nonperishable goods,
spiral notebooks, light-
weight toys and other
school supplies are need-
ed.
Fred Freeman, co-
president and founder of
the society, expects the
event to be a success.
"Everyone seems very
supportive of our society
and what we are trying to
do in our school and for
the environment," he
said. "The school staff
has been great to work
with us on these pro-
jects."
Candace Millington,
VHS principal, told stu-
dents she loved the idea
of the recycling and Sa-
moa projects.

Buchanan: Bad timing on health care


BY STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER


More than 200 area
residents turned out
Friday to hear U.S. Rep.
Vern Buchanan, R-13th
district, address their
concerns.
Health-care reform
and the war in Afghan-
istan were two of the
primary issues worrying
those who attended the
town hall meeting at
Englewood's Joseph A.
Tringali Center.
Buchanan described
the health-care legisla-
tion recently passed by
the U.S. House of Rep-
resentatives which
he voted against as
one that will affect the
Medicare benefits that
seniors now receive, a
worry for many older
residents. He tied those
concerns to the nation-
al debt.
"We made commit-
ments to veterans and
seniors, and we're run-
ning up trillion-dollar
bills one after another,"
Buchanan said.
He read the bill and
said he identified $100
billion in cuts to the
Medicare Advantage
plan.
"You have 30 (mil-
lion) to 50 million peo-
ple that want free or
highly subsidized health
care. This is the real
debate, although it
doesn't get framed this
way," he said, suggest-
ing that what money
isn't cut from Medicare
will be taken from
small-business owners.
Buchanan said he did
support a Republican
health-care bill that
failed. The Republican
bill would allow inter-
state private insurance
competition, which is
now restricted by state
insurance commis-
sions. The bill also
asked for tort reform,
reducing the liability
medical professionals
face.
Anita Frank, original-
ly from Germany, said
she didn't understand
why the United States
cannot address its
health-care needs like
Germany and other
European nations.
"I think the top prior-
ity is to tackle the health
insurance needs here,"
Frank said. "There's a lot
of young couples out
there without health
insurance who do have
to worry about their
families."
The House bill looks
to cover 96 percent of
the population with
health care, Buchanan
said.
"Is this the time?" he
said. "I think it's too big
of a risk, too big of a
gamble."
In a recent column,
Buchanan wrote, "this
health care (bill) also
increases taxes by $740
million, including a 5.4-
percent surcharge on
those with incomes of
$500,000, which are
mostly small-business
owners.
While much of the dis-
cussion focused on the
House bill, Buchanan
said he knows that what
emerges out of Con-
gress will depend upon
what shape the Senate
bill takes, and what
compromises can be
reached for the final
bill.
The wars
What worried Paul
Scionti, a Vietnam vet-
eran, is that the troops
in Afghanistan are
properly equipped and
have the resources they
need.
"I see the generals
pulling back all the time


and that tells me they
don't have what they
need to go forward,"
Scionti said. "I find that


very disturbing."
Buchanan said he
believes "the generals
are ready to go" and are
waiting on President
Barack Obama to
decide what strategy he
wants the military to
take.


"If we continue to
do what we're doing,
we will continue to
take casualties like a
Vietnam," he said, sup-
porting the deploy-
ment of more troops in
Afghanistan.
Of the morale of


troops now serving,
Buchanan said: "They're
very professional. Unlike
the '60s when people
were drafted, these are
people who enlisted and
believe in the cause of
freedom."
Establishing an effec-


tive government and
economy in Afghanistan
also are critical factors
that will determine
how soon U.S. troops
can return home, he
said.

Civility matters... you can bet your life on it


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Civility was absent in Laramie, Wyo., in October 1998, and a young man died.
He was gay.
After 10 years passed, little had changed.
The young man was Matthew Shepard, a student at the University of Wyoming.
Seen leaving the Fireside Bar with Aaron McKinney and Russell Henderson on the
evening of Oct. 6, he was discovered a day later, brutally beaten, tied to a barbed-wire
fence and hanging onto life by a thread.
He died on Oct. 12.
Five weeks later, members of the Tectonic Theater Project in New York went to
Laramie to interview people in town. "The Laramie Project," a play about what has
become one of the most well-known hate crimes in the United States, is based on
those interviews. It has been produced around the world and seen by millions, raising
awareness and, in many places, changing attitudes.
Epilogue
Henderson and McKinney were each given two consecutive life sentences for the
crime. Henderson pleaded guilty and McKinney was convicted of first-degree felony
murder and second-degree murder.
When Moises Kaufman and fellow Tectonic members returned to Laramie 10 years
later, they interviewed townspeople again but also were able to interview Matthew's
mother, Judy Shepard, and Henderson and McKinney. An epilogue, "The Laramie
Project: Ten Years Later," resulted.
On Oct. 12, it was produced simultaneously in 150 cities in all 50 states and in more
than a dozen cities around the world. Participating theaters were linked electronically
to Lincoln Center, where actress Glenn Close, Kaufman, Tectonic members and others
introduced the readings and, afterward, hosted a joint Twitter session.
One of those performances took place in Sarasota at the Florida State University
Center for the Performing Arts' Mertz Theatre. It involved 15 actors portraying some
57 characters.

matter how good the production. That night, they stayed to the end.
They hung on every word of the interviews with the killers in their jail cells. The
audience members shook collective heads at comments showing that some people
still have not changed their minds about people who might be different. They laughed
out loud about some political comments and then were somewhat stunned by others.
"Perhaps she should have received the Peace Prize instead of the president," said
the woman seated next to me as Judy Shepard spoke from New York.
Though Shepard lost her son, she gained a new life as a civil activist who has spok-
en to thousands across the country.
"We are all Americans," she said at a march in Washington. "We are all equal
Americans gay, straight or whatever."
Momentum
The epilogue is described as a "moment work" one in which the story is deliv-
ered as a combination of moments in time.
Laramie, we learn in a key "moment," has experienced some changes but not
enough. The Walmart was replaced by aWalmart Supercenter. Physical growth has
not been matched by emotional growth, however.
Laramie resident Zackie Salmon is quoted in the epilogue:
"I think the people who were outraged by Matthew Shepard's murder are still out-
raged. I think that hard-core Wyoming faction who said: 'That little faggot got what he
deserved' they're still right here and they're still teaching their children the same
thing."
Where it matters
Today, 45 states have passed laws that punish hate crimes. Wyoming hasn't.
(Indiana, Arkansas, Georgia and South Carolina are the others.)
Congress passed hate-crime legislation in 1969, but it didn't address crimes moti-
vated by the victim's sexual orientation. The Matthew Shepard Act was introduced for
the fifth time in April and passed in the House, piggybacking onto a bill authorizing
increased funding for the Defense Department. The Senate passed it last month, and
President Obama signed it on Oct. 28.

They have a program
from Medicare that helps
choose the best plan for
you.

on Monday from 10
a.m. to 4 p.m., and on

seniors are welcome to visit on Monday

If you build it, they will come


BY AUDREY
BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER

For Jerry Frimmel,
principal of Venice
Christian School, the
$18,000 and time and
effort it took to get a new
module on campus
means so much more
than the building's
worth.
The new module does
more than give students
the ability to complete
their high school educa-
tion at VCS rather than
at a public high school. It
also allows for an
expanded enrollment.
Frimmel said the
administration started
planning four years ago
with five students who
were freshmen and
would have to leave in
the 11th grade, and they
expanded their student
population from there.
"We have over 30 stu-
dents in high school
now, and we continue to
get new students," he
said.
The reason why is
simple: marketing. Now
the school can reach out
in the Christian commu-
nity and let parents
know their children can
get a full kindergarten
through 12th grade
Christian education at
VCS.
State Sen. Nancy
Detert, who not only
represents District 23
but also is a neighbor of
the school who lives just
down the street, spoke
during a ribbon-cutting


ceremony Nov. 10 cele-
brating the new modular
classroom.
"Young people are 25
percent of our popula-
tion, but they are 100
percent of our future,"
Detert said.
"The fact that you're
expanding to a full-
blown high school is
good for you and good
for the community."
Education is at the
heart of Detert's work. At
the state level, she chairs
the Education
Committee, and Gov.
Charlie Crist recently
appointed her to the
Southern Regional
Education Board, which
encompasses all
Southern states.
"We are shifting to
national standards,"
Detert said. "The region-
al board is involved in
data gathering on testing
and graduation rates.
Our first meeting is in
December, in Atlanta.
"Florida is the worst
state in the nation for
graduation rates, and we
want to raise standards
and improve graduation
rates," she said.
Happy students
Jack May, senior and
student body president,
spoke during the cere-
mony. He said he was
"ecstatic" when he
learned that he could
complete his high school
education at VCS.
"I started here in my
sophomore year and felt
at home with my broth-
ers and sisters in Christ.

Nancy Detert; and Dean Calamaras, Chamber of Commerce board member, join in the celebration. Prior to this time, VCS
students were required to transfer to a public high school to complete their junior and senior years.


When I got the news that
Venice Christian School
had no 11th grade, I was
disappointed.
"But God was at work,
and I was ecstatic when I
heard we would have an
11th and 12th grade," he
said.
He said he was
"thankful to God and to
all those people who
dedicated precious time,
gifts and talents to make
this expanded high
school a reality."
Junior EmilyYandell
said she likes the sup-
port she gets from the
teachers and staff.
"It was a change for
me. I had gone to public
school, and when I came
here it was a nice envi-


ronment. A couple of
guys even carried books
for me. They're doing the
best they can for me, so I
can go to college,"
Yandell said.
She went on to say
that she is thinking
about going to Flagler
College to study photog-
raphy and performance
arts. "I really want to go
to Broadway," she said,
smiling as she named
her long-range goal.
Students Corey
McMahon, student gov-
ernment secretary, and
Gabby Doraisamy, stu-
dent government vice
president, said prayers
during the ceremony
and expressed gratitude
to all who helped with


fundraising and plan-
ning for the expanded
high school.

Gratitude
Frimmel expressed
gratitude to the many
supporters and con-
tributors, such as
Cherie Doraisamy,
school board member;
teacher Evelyn Foust,
who believed the
school could expand
and pushed for it to
happen; and Dr. Jesse
Ehrlich, orthodontist,
who gave a financial
contribution from his
practice during the cere-
mony and said there
would be more dona-
tions in the future.


Future growth
VCS has a goal of
serving more than 500
students in the future,
compared to about half
that amount currently.
In May, VCS kicked off
a capital fundraising
campaign to support a
$2.9 million expansion
at the private school's
campus at 1200 Center
Road. The fundraising is
still under way.
"It will take a lot more
people ... it will take the
community," Frimmel
said.
For more information,
or to donate to the capital
fund, call 496-4411.

Mini-grants awarded to VHS teachers


FROM THE VENICE HIGH
SCHOOL FOUNDATION


The Venice High School Foundation
has awarded eight mini-grants of up to
$600 each, totaling $4,319.25.
Coti Delgado received a grant to pur-
chase books for independent reading
and consumable workbooks. The con-
sumable workbooks are designed as
graphic organizer-styled reader-re-
sponse for reading and should improve
writing and reading organization.
Brenda Randazzese, Deb Brown and
Charalise Harris were awarded a grant
that will cover expenses for hotel
rooms, meals and parking in connec-
tion with a medical academy seminar.
Ann Pinney received two grants: one
to purchase 14 Playaway Audio books
to accompany high-interest class sets
of books recently purchased for the
lowest achieving 25 percent of the stu-
dent body; another one to purchase a
collection of "urban street fiction" rec-
ommended by the Journal of Ado-
lescent & Adult Literacy. All Venice High
School students will have access to
these books through the Media Center.


Mark Bartlett was given a grant to
build a computer from scratch in class
to prepare for the industry certification,
Comptia A+ test. Building a computer
from the ground up and making it fully
functional would be the ultimate way
to learn.
Wendy Dunn was awarded a grant to
provide four Research IV (SAT
Prep/College Skills) classes online in
order to provide more individualized
instruction in test-taking strategies and
core critical and essay writing skills.
Venice High School principal Can-
dace Millington received a grant to pay
for implementing a program that will
provide positive behavior support. Pro-
fessional Learning Community will
design this program and come up with
how to implement it and measure out-
comes.
MaryKay Mack was given a grant to
provide after-school tutoring for ninth-
grade students in math and English,
primarily for those in the lowest quar-
tile.
This project will be measured by
tracking attendance and FCAT score
improvements.


Girls Inc. receives high charity rating


FROM GIRLS INC. OF
SARASOTA COUNTY

Girls Incorporated of
Sarasota County
received a four-star rat-
ing from Charity Navi-
gator, America's largest
and most-utilized inde-
pendent evaluator of
charities.
In an October letter
from Ken Berger, Charity
Navigator's president,
Girls Inc. received the
highest level rating of
the agency based on the
most recent financial
information available
and Girls Inc.'s "ability to
efficiently manage and
grow its finances."
Only one quarter of
all nonprofits nation-
wide receive this honor,
and this shows that Girls
Inc. of Sarasota County
executes its mission in a


fiscally responsible way
and outperforms most
other charities in
America.
This exceptional des-
ignation from Charity
Navigator differentiates
Girls Inc. of Sarasota
County from its peers
and demonstrates to the
public it is worthy of
their trust.
"We are extremely
honored by this most
prestigious rating," said
Stephania Feltz, execu-
tive director.
According to Charity
Navigator's Web site, the
rating system examines
two broad areas of a
charity's financial health
- how responsibly it
functions day to day as
well as how well posi-
tioned it is to sustain its
programs over time.
Each charity is then


awarded an overall rat-
ing, ranging from zero to
four stars.
To help donors avoid
becoming victims of
mailing-list appeals,
each charity's commit-
ment to keeping
donors' personal infor-
mation confidential is
assessed.
To see Girls Inc.'s
Charity Navigator rating
log on to www.charity
navigator.org.
Girls Inc. is dedicated
to "inspiring all girls to
be strong, smart and
bold" and fulfills its mis-
sion of empowering girls
ages 6 and up to be self-
confident, responsible
and well-rounded indi-
viduals by delivering
research-based, age-
appropriate, after-school
and summer education-
al and sports programs.

Who holds the purse strings?


FRAN VALENCIC
SOCIAL COLUMNIST


Deb DiSandro claims that
categorizing women by their
various purses identifies
those who believe they are
superwomen from those who
do not. A purse filled with
necessities like dental floss
and a sewing kit means the
owner thinks she can handle
any emergency at any time.
Dressed in a Superwoman
costume and pink slippers,


DiSandro gave everyone at
the Fall Gathering sponsored
by The Women's Resource
Center a lesson in modera-
tion. The fundraiser included
fashions from the Encore
Shop, a boutique, raffles and
a silent auction.
Chair Lorraine Finizio and
silent auction chair Diana
Capirano deserve a click of
the purse for a well-organized
event. Three cheers to the
staff at the Plantation Golf &
Country Club for their usual
grace and efficiency.
Building dreams
The annual Habitat for
Humanity South Sarasota
County meeting included a
picnic and a parade. Sham-
rock Park gave youngsters a
place to play and oldsters a
place to meet and cook out.
Hot dogs and hamburgers
provided by Bogey's Sports
Pub and mapower provided


by the Habitat for Humanity
volunteers made for a nice
lunch buffet.
Among the volunteers and
board members on hand
were Ronnie Meurs, Fred
Hammett, Rich Appell, Dick
and Sue Ayers, Jon Steketee,
Golda Radefeld, Andy Sim-
kins and others.
Executive Director Judith
Wilcox invites anyone inter-
ested in volunteering for
Habitat, including helping
select recipient families, to
call 493-6606.
Congrats
Nancy and David Gorski
welcome a new granddaugh-
ter named Alexis Brooke. Her
parents Brian and Michelle
Carter and 3-year-old sister
Katelyn Nicole love cuddling
with baby Alexis. Grandma
Nancy is one of the spectacu-
lar Red Hat ladies in town
and chairs the always-sold-


out Our Lady of Lourdes
Fashion Show in February.
One of our best
The special person of this
week is Judy Wilcox. As
executive director of Habitat
for Humanity, this nice lady
coordinates work and vol-
unteers.
In her quiet way, she
builds community as a way
of life. She recently read
grants at Northern Trust to
help teachers earn extra
money for their classrooms.
She attends most fundraisers
in town and devotes a lot of
her time to community ser-
vice. She has an easy-going
manner, never seems rushed
and always has a kind and
friendly word for others.
Judy Wilcox is one of the
women who make Venice a
great place to live.

Connecting with

'Contact'
As a national judge of synchronized figure skating,
I hope to award today's equivalent of the perfect
6.0, the highest mark in the former judging
system used by the International Skating Union.
In today's system, the highest mark would be a combi-
nation of the sum total of the number 3 times the number
of elements skated plus difficulty factors plus 50 points
for perfect execution of the five aspects of skating,
musicality, timing and such. Even in world competition,
the total points proving perfection has so yet to be
awarded, nor even computed.
In the old system, few skaters attained perfect 6.0s
from every judge as did dancers Torvil and Dean for their
Bolero number at the 1984 Olympics. Michelle Kwan,
one of skating's winningest skaters, received three 6.0s
- once. I awarded a 6.0 at a national competition
once and was thrilled to do it.
Such thrills are absent from ice rinks today but
not from other venues.
Many times, here on the Cultural Coast, I have seen
productions come close but there always is something
missing.
Not so in "Contact," the Asolo Rep/Sarasota Ballet
collaboration. The night I was there, it merited a 6.0. To
judge for yourself, call 941-351-8000 for tickets to this
Broadway award-winner. It closes Sunday.

Great entertainment
this week
Here are a few great ways to relax this week
before cleaning the house for relatives, planning
for Thanksgiving and getting the 'black Friday'
shopping list ready next week.
Start by taking a few hours this Friday with the
opening of "The Twilight Saga: New Moon." The sequel
to "Twilight," based on the books by Stephanie Meyer,
is sure to be worth the two hours.
On Tuesday, American Idol 2008 runner-up Adam
Lambert releases his debut CD, For Your
Entertainment. I've been listening to the title
track and now I can't wait for the CD.
Locally Slim Goodbody will teach kids about the
human body on Thursday at the Cultural Center, the
Boogiemen play for the playground on Friday, there is
the benefit concert by Gibson Cage and one of my
favorite local bands, Carnival of Soul on Saturday.
Look inside for all the details of these and more!

Benefit concert features Gibson Cage


Laurie Damato who suffers from systemic scleroderma, (third from right) is shown with
scleroderma research.


SUN PHOTO BY SHARE DERRICKSON

Concert to raise funds for devastating disease research


BY SHARE DERRICKSON
SUN CORRESPONDENT
When local celeb rocker Gibson
Cage was tasered by Charlotte
County Sheriff Deputies right
before he was due to get on stage
Feb. 27, 2009, it may have been an act
of divine intervention.
Nine months later, his antics were the
catalyst for an upcoming concert
Saturday to benefit Port Charlotte
resident Laurie Damato and others who
suffer from a rare, often-fatal disease,
systemic scleroderma.
After his arrest, Cage was put in touch
with local bail bondsman Billy Damato.
The two, Billy Damato said, formed a
friendship while Cage was in jail in on
the east coast of Florida for a failure to
appear charge.
His legal troubles were compounded
by the tasering incident at the Charlotte
County Fairgrounds Expo Hall as Cage
allegedly resisted arrest and then fled
the scene before the concert.
In true rocker form, however, Cage did
sneak back in to the venue to perform -
all in the name, he said, "of rock and
roll." He was later arrested an incident
that was a cog in the universe needed to
make the benefit, that will also include


the bands Beyond Driven and Carnival
of Soul, possible.
As part of the conversations between
now-friends Cage and Billy, Cage
learned about Billy's wife's illness and
was moved by it. Cage wanted to get
back on stage, and Billy and
Laurie wanted to raise funds
for research into her disease.
Laurie will not receive any
of the money raised. It will
go directly to the Scleroder- 6.
ma Research Foundation.
"During the process of
putting this all together," Billy
said, "many celebrities have donated
to help put on the concert, like Steven
Tyler and Aerosmith. "He and the band
have been very helpful," Billy said. There
are many out there, Billy said, who know
how imperative it is that more research
be done on scleroderma and how a lack
of funding is standing in the way.
Each day, Billy said, he has to watch
his wife suffer and it prompted him to
want to take positive action and raise
awareness.
He too believes that Cage's brush
with the law was a mishap of great
fortune for Laurie and others that
have the disease.


A cure can't come soon enough. From
the time one is diagnosed with the
systemic form of scleroderma, Laurie
said, until death, is around 11 years.
Laurie was diagnosed in 2006, but said
her problems started shortly after
Hurricane Charley.
..... ....... Not only is there no
cure, there are few
treatments and each
symptom is treated
separately- and
research into the
^ disease is miniscule in
relation to other autoim-
mune diseases, such as
multiple sclerosis, Laurie said.
Scleroderma causes the body to attack
its own tissue, making it hard and lose
mobility, and it can irreparably damage
almost every organ in the body. Laurie's
disease is advanced. She has difficulty
breathing, and swallowing, and often
aspirates into her lungs. Her diet is
viscous and she anticipates that she will
end up with a feeding tube. The disease
is often excruciatingly painful for her,
she said, and exhausting.
The unlikely pairing of Cage and bail
bondsman Billie has put Cage back on
stage for the first time since he was


released from jail this past summer.
Cage decided he wanted to do
something for Laurie, "because I can I
can pull it off. If I can use my music to
help someone else, that is the greatest
gift of all I think. It puts a cherry on top
of what I already love to do."
"It's a beautiful thing to help someone
else and Laurie needs our help and
has something to say and we can give
her a voice. She has some serious
strength and her heart has touched all
of us in the band."
"There are mistakes in this life but
things happen for a reason even
getting tasered," he laughed.
Tickets to the show are $15 or $20 at
the door and are available at the
following locations. Chubbyz 2 Tavern,
Bella Italia, Sports City Billiards, Sign
Tech, Caffeinator, and Billy Damato Bail
Bonds Company, and through Carnival
of Soul. The doors open at 5 p.m.
To learn more about scleroderma,
contact the Scleroderma Research
Foundation at www.srfcure.org.
The Charlotte County Expo Center is
located at 2333 El Jobean Road,
Port Charlotte.

Stay and play and play

some more at Champions


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Through the end of the year,
golfers can play continuously an
both courses at the Omni Orlan-
do.
Start with the National course and
then, when you feel confident that you
can handle longer rough and the tough
international layout, go for it. Despite
being located in central Florida, the
course feels like it could be along the
wind-swept coast of the North Sea.
Prices start at $139 per person,
double occupancy, plus taxes and
gratuities, for golf, lodging and a great
breakfast buffet at Trevi's in the Omni.
Come January, you might pay that just
to play a round of golf at a comparable
resort. This Unlimited Golf package is
good through Dec. 31.
Through Dec. 26, golfers booking
premium room deals will be able to play
a round on arrival day, which is akin to
making one deal into two, especially
when you add a late 3 p.m. check-out.
These days, it seems most hotels want
their rooms back by noon at the latest.
Guests also get unlimited use of the
Champions 9 course, a par-3 layout. As


it would be at a fine club, club storage
and cleaning is included.
At sunset, a bagpiper appears each
evening on the 10th tea as golfers
gather to discuss their play in David's
Club, which features a cigar terrace and
great grilled steaks.
Callaway Club rental can be added for
$20 extra per day and includes a
package of six balls.
Whether one regularly plays 36 holes
a day or not, the Spa at the Omni is the
place to deal with tired muscles to
simply to relax.
If time allows, private poolside
cabanas with attendants insure total
relaxation. Cabanas are equipped with
TVs, fully-stocked mini refrigerators,
complimentary smoothies and fruit and
can be closed for privacy.
Between the Omni's family pool and
the formal pool lined with those
cabanas, the resort has an 850-foot-
long lazy river where guests can while
away the hours floating along in inner
tubes. Rates and additional amenities
are subject to availability.
For reservations, call 407-390-6664 or
800-THE-OMNI.

Currently featured are two

Art Quilts features quilts from the
Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum. The
selected quilts cover the era
associated with the 1980s' birth of
the art quilt movement. The com-
panion show, Sew It's Art, offers
the work of local quilters from the
Pinellas County area.
Considered the catalyst for the

The 10,000-square-foot museum,

Gale Fulton Ross creates

reality-based art show for TV


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Artist Gale Fulton Ross is entering
the world of reality television with
"StudioSRQ."
Featuring the world-renowned artist,
"StudioSRQ," has begun pre-production
shooting in Sarasota.
"We already have one network inter-
ested," she said. "That is why we are
going ahead with shooting a pilot
as a finished piece."
The show is set in the artist's "art
factory," a two-story glass and cement
structure called StudioSRQ on Saraso-
ta's Fruitville Road.
Craig Ross, the artist's son, will direct
the show in Sarasota, working between


his busy schedule in Hollywood where
his credits include TV shows such as
"Cold Case," "The Mentalist," "Lincoln
Heights" and "Bones" as well as feature
films such as "Blue Hill Avenue."
"StudioSRQ" is an unscripted look into
the art world surrounding Ross, who is
involved in multiple events and projects.
Ross has 10-15 artists who work with
her. She will come up with a
project/premise for each show and let
the creation project and additional
members of the art world deal with the
resulting tension as the production
evolves.
"I want to show that art is collaborative
and also launch careers and hold
exhibitions," she said.


Other people in the arts, including
critics and dealers like Jan Corbino,
historians, writers and even improve
groups such as one led by Christine
Alexander will play a part and Ross
intends to use area people in the
production. Rick Hughes of Anything Arts
will be the line producer and Maras
Media of Sarasota will be heavily
involved, she said.
"My son is helping direct the show
toward larger networks," Ross said. "I
want to go with the best one (network)
possible for the show. The concept
is to put it out there and see."
Ross said the call to artists will encom-
pass the area from Tampa to Naples.
"It will fun watching the players do


Gale Fulton Ross

what they do and to see the tension
develop," she said. "Hopefully there will
be lots of it. It can't be just a show that
sits still and educates or no one will
watch it."

Acappella group to perform
at Venice Community Center
In this day and age of multi-track recordings and synthesized music, it,s rare to find
a musical group that can perform with their voices alone. 42Five has been performing
its own unique brand of entertainment since the turn of the century. Evolving from a
street corner barbershop sound and drawing on funk, rock, jazz and blues, 42Five is
unlike any musical experience around, recreating an entire instrumental band with
nothing but their voices, a feat which has to be seen to be believed.
This group of mega-talented young men are taking the nation by storm with a show
so unique critics have dubbed it the most refreshing approach to music that's graced
the stage for quite some time. 42Five will appear for one performance only at 7 p.m.
Saturday at the Venice Community Center, 326 S. Nokomis Ave., Venice. Tickets are
still available at the community center.
For more information, contact the Sarasota County Call Center at 941-861-5000 or

'Scoundrels' bring mayhem


'Scoundrels' bring mayhem


and mirth to Ven


14 BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Venice Theatre's produc-
tion of "Dirty Rotten
Scoundrels" by Jeffrey
Lane and David Yazbek has been made
even funnier by director Brad Wages. It
plays through Dec. 6.
A strong cast led by Chris Caswell
(Lawrence Jameson), Douglas Landin
(Freddy Benson), Gianna Campo
(Christine Colgate), David P. Brown
(Andre Thibault) and Kim Kollar (Muriel)
made it possible to add so many fun
schticks and sight gags and the laughter
on opening night was proof that the


ice


audience appreciated what they were
seeing.
Landin had the most physically
demanding role. He rose to the occa-
sion, somersaulting into audience hearts
even as he back-flipped over a piece of
beef jerky. As his reluctant mentor, Chris
Caswell portrayed the quintessential con
man, although, one with a heart. Kollar's
voice and comedy timing were perfect
for the escapades involving her charac-
ter, including trysts with Andre.
Camp was simply outrageous in the
best possible way.

SUN CORRESPONDENT
At 15, a doe-eyed Courtney
Jones was working as a
hostess at a Greek restau-
rant where the ever-popular
Boomers now stands.
While the
Port Charlotte establishment has
undergone a transformation in the
past 13 years, Jones and her
cheerful smile remained and she
worked her way up the ladder to
the coveted position of bartender
at one of the hottest night spots in
Charlotte County.
Although it took many years for
the Port Charlotte native to
become a bartender, it is her
chosen profession and one she
wouldn't trade, she said. "I learned
it on the job.
I don't know if it was what I
dreamed of doing, but my hours
are great because I can do it after
my children are in bed and I get to
spend a lot of time with them" she
said. "Plus, the money is too
good," said, adding that her clients
are loyal tippers.
In her 13 years of learning the
intricacies of the business, the girl
grew up into a smart and savvy
business woman who has seen
many changes in the restaurant
and bar industry one being
Boomers going state of the art.
Jones was onboard when the bar

"At first, it was a little hard
because I was used to pouring
with both hands, but now, it makes
my job much easier."
And while she is a sharp profes-
sional, when watching her work, it
is obvious her customers also
appreciate she never lost her
bubbly nature, and many she
works with consider her family.
David "Bubba" Pollard, one of the
sports bar managers who has
worked with Jones for five years,
spoke fatherly of her.

Chicken Tender Salad


Traditional Fish and Chips


Ultimate platter


Shark's a hidden delight you can sink teeth into


BY CHUCK BALLARO
SUN CORRESPONDENT
On the access road heading down
South U.S. 41 in Port Charlotte,
there is a hidden treasure for
seafood lovers. But be careful, you
might miss it.
Sure, it's small. And the atmosphere is
rather simple. But can they ever
cook up some food.
Welcome to Sharks.
Sharks specializes in most seafood;
shrimp, pollack, oysters, clam bellies,
even chowders and bisques. Although
they do serve some hamburgers and
chicken, about 95 percent of their
business is devoted to seafood.
Most of what they serve is fried,
although they have some blackened
dishes. Their fried dishes are lightly
breaded so they don't have the


'doughy' taste.
The inside is simple and bright.
Simple chairs and tables, white walls
with blue trim and some fish nets on the
walls to give you an idea of what
you're gonna get.
"I like to keep it bright," said Ray Isaac,
who owns and operates Sharks with his
wife, Alley. "Very clean."
And because there's no dedicated
building or expensive d6cor, they don't
have to charge an arm and a leg for
service.
Most of their seafood combos sell in
the $8-$12 dollar range, while their
baskets generally sell for under $10.
For those who like a challenge, they
have an ultimate platter, with almost
everything under the sun for $14.95, and
they have a children's menu, with
nearly everything under $5.


"People can't believe the prices when
they come here," Isaac said. "Nobody
leaves here hungry."
Sharks opened in 2001 on Harbor
Boulevard and did quite well until
Charley came along in 2004.
"We were destroyed and it took us four
years to find another place," Isaac said.
"We couldn't find another place.
They moved to their present location
on Sept. 15 of last year. They have had
some success, though the economy has
been tough on restaurants in general.
"It's been a tough summer with the
economy," Isaac said. "Hopefully when the
snowbirds come back, it'll pick up."
They hope to expand when the
economy brightens.


"We'll have the only restaurant in the
world run by a seven-year-old," teased
Isaac as his son, Elias sat on his lap
next to Alley and daughter Sumar, 5.
Restaurants run in the Isaac family. His
brothers run their North Port location
while their oldest daughter Ciara, 17,
also works there.
And what are the family favorites?
"I like the crab sandwich," Elias said.
"I like the chicken and French fries,"
said Sumar.
"I go for the clam bellies," Alley said.
I'm partial to the fried oysters.
Sharks is located at 3821 Tamiami Trail
in Port Charlotte. For more information,
call 941-627-1006.

New head named at Sarasota Arts Council


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
The game of musical chairs
continues at the Sarasota Arts
Council where last year's replace-
ment of Meredith Collier, Russ Crumley,
is being replaced by Jim Shirley.
Crumley became the council's
executive director Oct. 1, 2008, and
will remain on a part-time basis during
the transition.
Shirley, a longtime resident of
Sarasota, was development director
for PAL Sailor Circus in Sarasota for


five years.
"This move is crucial for our organi-
zation's success," Crumley is quoted in
the release announcing the change,
adding "The board and I recruited Jim
to help us expand on work begun over
the summer, and his efforts will be
instrumental in helping the council
achieve both immediate and longer-
term goals."
During the summer, a major restruc-
turing of the arts council was begun.
New board members were selected to
oversee the changes and several


workshops were held for arts leaders
and members of the media.
Founded in 1986, the organization
decreased the size of its board, now
headed by Dr. Larry Thompson,
president of Ringling College of Art
and Design. Also on the board are
Murray Chase of Venice Theatre,
Linda DiGabriele of the Asolo Rep,
Sally Faron of Key Chorale, John Alan
Fischer of Artist Series of Sarasota,
Richard Hopkins of Florida Studio
Theatre, Pedro Reis of Circus Saraso-
ta and Bruce Rodgers of The Her-


mitage Artist Retreat.
A new Web site, funded by a grant
from the Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice, was launched
this summer. Its intent was to make
the association and its arts calendar
more user friendly for arts members
as well as the public.
Sarasota Arts Council maintains
offices at 1226 North Tamiami Trail,
Suite 300, Sarasota.

Holiday magic opens


at car museum


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Chills are mostly an illusion in sunny
Florida. So is the work of Las
Vegas illusionists Vince, Yvonne
and Erika Carmen who will perform their
holiday show at the Sarasota Classic Car
Museum beginning Nov. 19.
Known as America's First Family of
Magic, and the only one with permission
to use the famed Houdini fame, the
Carmens will use comedy, magic, audi-
ence participation, unicycling and a real
snow storm to entertain their audiences.
Appropriate for all ages, the act features


Yvonne on her unicycle, escapes and a bit
of mind reading plus dinner.
Come at 5:15 p.m. to allow time to tour
the car museum, which has two cars on
display that once belonged to John and
Mable Ringling when they lived a block
away on Bay Shore Road, in their winter
home, Ca d'Zan.
Dinner is served at 6 p.m. and is
followed by the magic show.
From Exit 213 of Interstate 75, travel
west on University Parkway to U.S. 41.
The car museum will be to your right on
the corner, at 5500 North Tamiami Trail.
For reservations, call 941-925-8021.

0 ur school art budget has
IJbeen cut...". These words,
often repeated by teachers
soliciting art materials, are what
prompted Marcello Dworzak, president
of Da Vinci Paint Co., to think of a
program which would grow the arts in
high schools while reducing schools'
dependency on government funding.
Art In My School (AIMS), the program
borne from his idea and ensuing
partnership with Art and Frame of
Sarasota, is committed to doing just
that and two local high schools have
been selected to be the first in the
nation to benefit.
The pilot program will provide Saraso-
ta High School and Lemon Bay High
School with enough art materials for
300 students. Each student will create
original artwork to be displayed for sale
at a gallery walk on St. Armands Circle
during December 2009.
Twenty selected paintings will be
auctioned at a kick-off cocktail party,
hosted by Tommy Bahama. The inau-
gural event is scheduled from 5 p.m. to
7 p.m. Dec. 10 at the Tommy Bahama
Restaurant & Bar located at 300 John
Ringling Blvd., St. Armand's Circle.
Tickets for the cocktail party can be
purchased at www.ArtlnMySchool.com.
AIMS hopes to attract the support of
art collectors and the local community
to raise enough art supply funds for the
two participating high schools plus one
more school for the year 2010. The
goal is to grow the program nationwide

Enjoy holiday decorations at the

Ringling home and museums


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
On Dec. 11, there will be a day-
long tour of the John and Mable
Ringling Museum of Art in
Sarasota. Under the auspices of St.
Petersburg College's Lifelong Learning
department, the tour will include lunch at
Treviso and a private guided tour of the
former winter home of the Ringlings, Ca
d'Zan, which will be fully decorated for
the holidays.
The holiday tree in the grand salon
includes hand-blown glass ornaments
from Germany valued in excess of
$10,000 according to Ca d'Zan Curator
Ron McCarty. Each year, hundreds of
yards of garland are strung, bouquets
are fashioned and each ornament is
placed on the tree by a select group of
volunteer designers.
Located in the Ringling Museum
Visitor Center, Treviso serves food
inspired by Italy.
The all-day event will include time for
tours of the art and circus museums,
including the Tibbals Learning Center
and its 3,800-square-foot miniature
circus.
Participants also will receive copies of
"Circus Days in Sarasota and Venice"
and "Ghost Stories of Sarasota," by Kim
Cool. Both include extensive references
to the Ringlings and "The Greatest
Show on Earth."

Sarasota Ballet's star continues
to grow brighter under the
leadership of lain Webb.
That its heavenly star is being
augmented by two of the most famous
dancers in the world in the season
opener, Sir Peter Wright's "Giselle," on
Nov. 27 at the Sarasota Opera House.
Recently announced as the season's
principal guest artists for "Giselle" are
Alina Cojocaru and Johan Kobborg.
Reprising Wright's "Giselle," rather
than having Margaret Barbieri create a
new variation has turned into a cost-
saving measure for the ballet, which
like all the arts, is suffering from the
economic downturn.
The suggestion came from Wright
himself during a discussion with
Barbieri who has performed in the
Wright version all over the world.

Cojocaru's name is entwined with
that of "Giselle" for it was while
dancing the role in London, that
Cojocaru was elevated to the status of
principal dancer in the Royal ballet of
London.
Kobborg, her partner, also a principal
with the Royal Ballet, moved there
from the Royal Danish Ballet. He has
won multi awards and was most
recently nominated for the 2006
Laurence Olivier Award for his
work on "La Sylphide."
Cojocaru and Kobburg have danced
with many of the world's finest

Gary Dascanio, 56, was certain-
ly old enough to be home alone on
Veterans Day 2008, but he was too
young to have a stroke or so he
thought.
On that Tuesday morning holi-
day, the Florida Lottery
Commission salesman had taken
his wife Pat's car to a mechanic
and returned home about noon.
Pat was at work at Palm Island
Resort in Cape Haze when Gary
called to say he wasn't feeling well.
His symptoms began with a
pounding headache and hearing

He took two aspirin and lay on
the sofa.
"I now know that wasn't a good
idea," he said.
A little later Gary was feeling
sweaty and when he stood, he
couldn't feel his left foot touch the
floor. That's when he called Pat.
"He sounded drunk," she said.
'At the time, he was borderline dia-
betic so I thought perhaps it was
low blood sugar. I told him to call
9-1-1 and that I was on my way
home."

Gary made the emergency call and crawled
across the living floor to unlock the door for the
paramedics.
"I remember being put into the ambulance,
and that's all I remembered for two days," he said.
He was taken to Venice Regional Medical
Center and attended by the stroke team.
When he awoke two days later, he had the
worst headache he had ever had. This time the
headache was cause by the medication he was
given to rapidly lower his blood pressure.
During those two days, neurologist Dr. Juliette
Coleman told Pat the stroke Gary had suffered
was a life-changing incident and advised her to
prepare herself.
As it turned out, Gary had left-sided paralysis
and difficulty swallowing.
"The swallowing specialist, Lyla, told me I
would have to drink thickened liquids and eat
pureed food," he said. He hated those, but he
loved Lyla.
"After I had recovered, Dr. Coleman told me
when she had first seen me, she wasn't completely
sure I was going to survive," he said.
"Gary had suffered a very large stroke in the
right side of his brain," she said. "I thought if he
recovered he would have some residual left-side
paralysis or weakness."
Coleman said in Gary's case operating wasn't
an option, so the team did things for him to make
sure the hemorrhage didn't expand. One way to
do that was to keep his blood pressure from going
too high."
Gary learned to take one day at a time and do
everything his therapists, doctors and nurses
asked him to do.
The good news was that he had no blockages in
the carotid arteries in his neck.
The cause of the stroke was undetected high
blood pressure that damaged the small arteries in
the brain.
"High blood pressure doesn't always feel bad,"
Coleman said. "We call diabetes and hyperten-
sion, or high blood pressure, the silent killers
because they cause damage and it isn't until years
later that we are aware of that damage."


Stroke center
Coleman said the kind of stroke Gary experi-
enced is called an intracerebral hemorrhage.
"There are two types of strokes hemorrhagic
and ischemic," she said. "Ischemic strokes are


caused by blood clots, while hemorrhagic strokes
are bleeds in the brain."
Eight-five percent of strokes are caused by

blood clots; 15 percent are caused by
bleeds in the vessels of the brain.
"The treatments for each are very
different," Coleman said. "There is
great urgency in determining which
kind of stroke a person has suffered."
That's just another reason why the
new Joint Commission-certified
Primary Stroke Center and stroke
team atVRMC are so important. The
Joint Commission, the hospital
accrediting body, officially certified
the center in June 2009.
The Primary Stroke Center has
formed an alliance with Emergency
Medical Services so that when
patients call 9-1-1 with stroke symp-
toms, the medical technicians can
evaluate them and quickly transmit
that information to the stroke team.
The center allows


them to systemat-
ically and urgently


with stroke symptoms to the nearest
certified stroke hospital.
"Prior to our certification, EMS
personnel were obligated to take
patients to other hospitals that were
certified," said Robin McGuinness,
chief nursing officer at VRMC. "Given
our population, we thought it was
important that we have a Primary
Stroke Certified Center."
McGuinness said she and the
stroke team want people to realize
that timing is critical when it comes
to strokes.
"What we want to do is help peo-
ple to understand the importance of
calling 9-1-1 immediately," she said.
"Get to the hospital as soon as you
have the first symptom, don't rest,
don't pop aspirin, call 9-1-1."
McGuinness said there is a three-
hour window from the time stroke


Medical personnel in the new cen-
ter can have patients evaluated and
treatment begun within one hour.
McGuinness said the hospital has
had the stroke team and the process
in place for many years, but the
biggest barrier to receiving certifica-
tion was neurological coverage.
"We now have a whole team of
neurologists," McGuinness said. "EMS
was very pleased when we received
the certification because they want to
take patients to the closest certified
stroke hospital.

Rehabilitation
Gary believes his stress level
worked hand in hand with his high
blood pressure to create the stroke.
Gary's father was very ill, so Gary
was under a lot of stress from that,
and he had battled and won a fight


"He's always had the I-can-do attitu


diagnosis and per-
form evaluations on the patient.
The Joint Commission standard is
for EMS personnel to take patients


symptoms occur that is very impor-
tant in treating the patient and get-
ting the best outcome.


against throat cancer just six years
earlier.
At first Gary could only stand with
the aid of physical therapists.
But four days later he was moved
from intensive care to a private room.
The next day he was moved to
HealthSouth for intensive physical
therapy.
While he was atVRMC, he was vis-
ited by Dr. DeJesus from HealthSouth.
"He wanted me to get to
HealthSouth immediately," Gary said.
The quicker rehabilitation is begun in
earnest, the better the chances for
improvement.
"Physical therapy was my full-time
job," he said.
Anyone who has gone through
physical therapy will tell you it is a
grueling and exhausting process, but
the rewards can be astounding.
"I spent eight hours a day for five
days each week and four hours on
Saturday in physical therapy," Gary
said.
He did additional work as well.
"I asked the therapist what we
were going to do about the left side of
my mouth sagging," Gary said. "He
told me we would strengthen my
facial muscles and I could do that by
scrunching up my nose, so I would lie
in bed for hours wiggling my nose to
help strengthen those muscles."
He and Pat would sit in his room


and throw balloons back and forth to
strengthen his left arm and hand.
Gary spent five weeks in
HealthSouth and four weeks in out-
patient therapy at HealthPark. His
hard work and that of the stoke team
and his therapists, paid off as he is
fully recovered and back to work.
"They took such good care of me,"
he said. "They made me feel loved
and cared for. I was a lucky man."

Attitude
Pat knows Gary's attitude played a
huge roll in his recovery as well.
"He's always had the I-can-do atti-
tude," she said.
"I asked God to just give me the
best result he could, and I'd do the
rest," Gary said. "It gave me a better
appreciation for what I have, and I
don't get stressed out over the little
stuff."
de He said that his phys-
^ ical therapist gave him
an early Christmas
present.
"He linked his arm in mine and
told me we were gonna run. I couldn't
believe it," Gary said. "The first time I
asked my legs to run, they did."
Ron Kubiak, director of rehabilita-
tion services at VRMC and a member
of VRMC's stroke team, said the soon-
er you begin the process of figuring
out what the patient's potential is and
working with family and caregivers,
the better the results.

only lasts three to seven days.
"When patients are medically sta-
ble, they are no longer appropriate for
an acute-care hospital," Kubiak said.
So the hospital therapy services are
used to evaluate what a patient's pre-
vious situation was and what his or
her support systems are. Then there is
a short period of time to do several
things.
One of those things is creating an
"after" plan. To do that, physicians,
case managers, nursing staff, dieti-
tians, therapists, the patient and fam-
ily get together daily to discuss
options.
Physical therapy begins as soon as
the patient has some cognitive ability
to follow commands.
Kubiak said it is important for fam-
ily members to understand they can
participate in the patient's recovery.
"Often they come in and they feel


helpless," he said. "It's important to
know that it isn't the end of the world.
That's hard to understand when your
life or that of your loved one has
changed right before your eyes."
Kubiak said patients and family
members need to realize that the
team is there to get the patient back
to his or her prior level of function or
as close as possible.
"We give them goals they can
achieve and we keep them motivat-
ed," he said. We don't allow patients
to focus on what they cannot do. We
keep them focused on what they can
do."
Thanks to all of Gary's hard work
and the encouragement and expertise
of the stroke team at VRMC, the ther-
apists at HealthSouth and HealthPark,
he returned to work on April 1.
"It's very satisfying to get it all
back," Gary said.

PROJECTS EDITOR


He's a firefighter and a fitness expert.
NowVince Mutterholen is teaching
others how to use constant motion to
improve their lives, increase their sta-
mina and increase their fitness quo-
tient.
He opened Constant Motions
Protection and Fitness, an exercise and
fitness challenge program, after devel-
oping exercises that work the entire
body through variety of movement and
constant motion.
His exercise gym is unlike any gym
you've visited before. You won't find
state-of-the art exercise equipment;
instead, you'll find 200-350 pound tires
for flipping, straps hanging from steel
bars, a slosh tube for balancing,
weights for lifting and more.
The slosh tube is made from PVC
pipe. The men's tube is 10 feet long and
4 inches in diameter. The women's
tube is 7 feet long and 4 inches in
diameter. Both are filled with water.
Oh, and there is one more thing you
won't find in the gym mirrors.
"It isn't about mirrors," Mutterholen
said. "It's about fitness.
He spends a minimum of two weeks
with each person who signs up with
Constant Motions tailoring an exercise
regimen specifically for that individual.
"Students are taught the proper way
to do every exercise and watched care-
fully for form," Mutterholen said. "It's
like having your own personal trainer
with a group that loves you."
His exercise program provides car-
dio and strength training simultane-

ously.
"It's old-school fitness training,"
Mutterholen said. "It was developed in
the military to make the whole body
strong."

Core values
The program is based on the philos-
ophy that we move all day long and
our bodies need to be strong to sup-
port our activities.
"We strengthen the core,"
Mutterholen said. "But the whole body
is engaged as opposed to working on
just one area of the body."
He structures the exercise routines,
which are always filled with variety, to
work on the stabilizer muscles to create
a strong core, yet work out the total
body.
Mutterholen has been involved in
martial arts all of his life and has col-
lected a wide variety of exercises and
moves to incorporate into his Constant
Motions choreographed routines.
For 21 years, he has been a Sarasota
County firefighter.
'As firefighters, we work out," he
said. "We've done a lot of research
because we want to be protected and
safe to do our jobs."

Protection
Speaking of protection, Constant
Motions is set up for fitness and pro-
tection personal protection.
Some years ago Mutterholen joined
with a man who owns a Russian mar-
tial arts business Berkoot
International Protection Agency.
Mutterholen is the director of training
for the agency.
"Constant motion makes it harder
for a bad person to catch you," he said.
"You're less of a target."
KIDSAFE, a part of the National
Secuirty Alliance, is another program
Mutterholen likes.
"They teach kids to go bananas,
kick, scream, etc.," he said. "Those are
things we can all do when we're in dan-
ger."
Personal protection deals with


anatomy and physiology, according to
Mutterholen.
"It's understanding how the body
and the world work," he said.
Mutterholen uses the RACE
accronym to illustrate what he means

lyze the situation; C, control the situa-

what they are achieving.
Laura Dorsey lost 33 pounds in
a 12-week period.
She and some of her fellow
exercisers entered Mutterholen in
Sharky's Triathalon only two
weeks prior to the event.
"But we did it all together," he
said. 'At Constant Motions we
become family that is supported,
encouraged and cheered on to do
their best."
Ann Roggero said her favorite
saying is "If not me, who? If not
now, when?
"It's about time I started living
my motto," she said. "Besides it's
good for my daughter, Melissa,
and me."
"My mom talked me into doing
this," Melissa, 17, said. "I'm defi-
nitely the youngest person here,
but I'm definitely not the
fittest."
When Ruth Terry
heard about Constant
Motions, she decided it
was time to get off the
couch and got moving

A '


program is challenging, but he
emphasized that the only person
that you're competing with is
yourself.
"You are only asked to beat
your own time or your own num-
ber of repititions," he said.
Angela Balsinger said Constant
Motions is a lot more fun than a
regular gym.
"I chose it because it's different,
fun and it works every part of the
body including cardio," she said.
"It's motivating."
Ed Taylor, Constant Motions'
landlord, also exercises with
Mutterholen.
"I lost weight two years ago,"
he said. "I keep it off with
Constant Motions."

Breathe
Mutterholen's partner in
Constant Motions is Carolyn
Garcia, who runs the yoga and
Pilates part of the program. She
also runs the classes Mutterholen
has to miss when he's on firefight-
or duty
"l' -ing lit is all about breathing,

"How
you breathe is
the foundation
of all you do,"
she said. "It


brings you into the now and gets
you out of the past."
Garcia offers this breathing
exercise for a busy and preoccu-
pied society.
"Inhale to a count of four
through your nose, hold for a
count of four, exhale out of your
nose for a count of four," she said.
"Then say, 'Let go and let God'
and then take a new breath."
Garcia offers free (no donation
required) yoga on Nokomis Beach
on Tuesday and Thursdays at
sunrise.

Coming back
Mutterholen thinks his clients
keep coming back because per-
sonal accomplishment is
achieved pretty quickly. He also
believes the sense of cameraderie
is a strong attraction to Constant
Motions.
"It's the diversity of people, the
family concept of a whole group
of people who care about you and
want nothing in return," he said.
"You want to come back to where
you feel good."
It also helps that all of the hard
work culminates in a guided
meditation cool-down, which
relaxes each muscle of the body
from the toes all the way to the
head and back again.
Constant Motions also
includes nutrition and portion-
control counseling.

Finding peace amid the wreckage


Without a doubt, the last 12 months
have taken a toll on our peace of mind
and our wallets.
Everyone, regardless of age, is living
differently even if this recession has
not affected your job.
If you can relate to this, you will
want to read on. It's important to take
a huge breath and get through the
anger and bitterness. And, that can
take a while. However, when no
income is coming in one has to get
past this stage of anger even more
quickly. Mourn the loss. Don't beat
yourself up. Don't let anyone else beat
you up. Now is time to make a plan. It's
like a new beginning. We may not like
it, but we can work on getting over it or
find a new way to happiness and suc-
cess.

Critical tools
Breathe. Inhale through your nose,
breathing deeply down into the
tummy area and hold it for a beat,
then breathe out slowly through your
nose unless you're exercising, and
then you want to breathe out through
your mouth. Doing this kind of breath-
ing three or four times a day can great-
ly affect your health and make you feel
better. This one action alone can great-
ly enhance your heart health.
Make sure you take advantage of
resume-writing classes or online tuto-
rials to increase your odds in landing
job interviews if you've lost your job. I
always include a cover letter with my
resume to share some attributes other
than educational and work-related
ones.
Once you are accepted as an inter-


viewee, make sure you brush up on
what's important about yourself
because it should be ready to roll off
your tongue.
Here are some questions you might
be asked about yourself during an
interview:
If you have done something over
and above the call of duty, how do you
like to be rewarded if additional finan-
cial reward is not possible?
How do you like to hear criticism -
on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the
most honest, where do you need the
critique to be?
If you heard gossip about your
direct manager, what would you do?
Is there a quote that emphasizes
your attitude, work ethic or motiva-
tion?
What's the last book you read and

what did you learn from it?
Also, always practice the answers
to these questions out loud at least
10 times after you have written them
down. Really put some thought into
the answers. You will come off more
polished and professional in the
interview.

Let go
Another thing you must do before
you go to the interview is figure out
what you realistically need to make
to keep you happy and pay the bills.
You may need to consider taking a
pay cut. However, you may still want
more than the job is willing or able to
pay, but at least let them know what
you need.
Once you are in the interview,
don't talk about your former job and
how your employer let you go. It
sounds mournful and sometimes
downright angry. Don't let the inter-
viewer know you may be losing your
home. The interviewer can't be
responsible for that, and it can color
the interview negatively.
It's really important to let
go of the past. All you
have is today, nothing
more, nothing less.
You will need more
than willpower. You
need a plan to get
moving with your
new life. It may
be time to read a
new book about
change or hire a
coach to work
through your
issues of dis-
satisfaction
and making
changes. I

Books to consider

"Immunity to Change," by Robert
Kegan, Ph.D., and Lisa Lahey, Ed.D.,
experts in adult learning. This book dis-
cusses why people don't change and
those who have successfully changed.
"Oneness With All Life," by Eckert
Tolle. The greatest goal you can set this
year is to make peace with your life, no
matter what your circumstances. One of
his insights is not to seek happiness. If
you seek it, you won't find it, because
seeking is the antithesis of happiness.
Happiness is ever elusive, but freedom
from unhappiness is attainable now, by
facing what is rather than making up sto-
ries about it.
carefree and putting it on your credit
cards. Today you will want to careful-
ly consider your purchases.

Dress for success
Now, you must dress the part for
the interview. Make sure you find
something in your
wardrobe that is
already a favorite
and you haven't
outgrown.


Make sure every detail of this outfit is
looking crisp, clean and ironed.
Make sure buttons are secure and no
threads are showing. Make sure the
collar of the shirt, dress or jacket is
perfectly clean.
Don't go out and buy a new outfit,
as many people think they should,
because it may wrinkle terribly, be
too short or too long on you. You will
want to wear something that people
have told you that you look fabulous
in by fit and by color.
Keep in mind, turquoise, coral and
periwinkle are universal colors that
look fantastic on you no matter your
heritage. Also, the color yellow -
light yellow, gold, beige gold, not
street-sign yellow is the nonverbal
tongue, which means wearing this
color will always have more people
talking with you than not. A great
book on the psychology of color is
"The Language of Color," by
Dorothee L. Mella. Another good one
is "The Color Answer Book," by
Leatrice Eiseman.
Don't forget to check your shoes to
make sure they have been polished
and are not scuffed. Take another
look at your nails
to make sure
they are clean,
short and
huffed. Take
