Woman dies


in house fire


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Elizabeth Wojtczak, 53, was
no stranger to Venice firefight-
ers who rushed into her burn-
ing home on Saturday.
"We'd gone there many
times," said Deputy Fire Chief
Steve Kona. "Up to three times
in a shift, sometimes. Maybe
she'd fall out of her wheelchair
... fall out of bed and can't get
back up. We frequently helped
her. Made sure she was OK.
Everyone knew Betsy."
Kona said firefighters were
dispatched to the residence an
average of once a month over
the past two years, mostly for


assistance with Wojtczak's
wheelchair.
"We don't have a lot of folks
like this," Kona said. "But we
do sometimes become on a
first-name basis because we
go so often."
When the Venice Fire De-
partment was dispatched at
6:04 p.m. on April 3, firefighters
recognized the address.
"One of the guys said,
'That's Elizabeth,' "Kona said.
Firefighters arrived in four
minutes. It took 15 minutes to
put the blaze out at 827 Guild
Drive, Venice.

The Venice Police Depart-
ment has arrested Justin
Lange Abercrombie, 29,
3300 block of Orange Road,
South Venice, on charges of
premeditated murder and
attempted murder in Mon-

Families' stories conflict on relationship


BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER


Justin Abercrombie, 29, has been charg-
ed with first-degree murder and attempted
murder after he allegedly shot a longtime
female friend in the head and wounded a
man early Monday morning.
Police believe Abercrombie fired five
rounds at a vehicle parked in the yard of a
Laurel Avenue home in Venice. Inside the
car were Jason "Budda" Schaeffer, 36, and
Candace Hillock, 30. Hillock died of her
wounds after being transported to Bayfront
Medical Center in St. Petersburg, where


Schaeffer was still hospitalized on Tuesday.
After Venice detectives traced Aber-
crombie to his mother's Monfero Avenue
home in North Port, at about 12:30 p.m.
Monday, Sarasota County Sheriff's SWAT
officers and North Port police surrounded
the home, where Abercrombie's truck was
parked.
Inside, Abercrombie spoke to a Venice
Police detective. He locked himself in the
bathroom while communicating with
police. He told police they were "pressuring
him." His mother told him to go outside

Dent seeks ruling on election audits


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County Commis-
sion Chair Joe Barbetta told
his colleagues
about a
"friendly law-
suit" to be
filed this
week by
county Super-
visor of 44
Elections
Kathy Dent
that seeks Dent
clarification
regarding audits after elec-
tions.
Dent said Monday her law-
suit is receiving finishing
touches from attorney Ron


Labasky of the Tallahassee
firm Young van Assenderp PA.
The suit will name the
Sarasota County Commission
and Florida Secretary of State
Kurt S. Browning as defen-
dants, she said. It is expected
to be filed midweek.
Because the defendants are
in Sarasota County and
Tallahassee, it has not been
determined whether the suit
will be filed in the 12th or
Second Judicial Circuit Court.
Labasky, who is the attor-
ney for the Florida State Asso-
ciation for Supervisors of Elec-
tions, has approximately 35
years of experience in election
laws, Dent said.
The lawsuit stems from
February state Supreme Court


decision regarding the charter
amendment approved by
Sarasota County voters in a
November 2006 referendum.
The amendment called for
paper ballots in elections; ran-
dom, mandatory and inde-
pendent audits; and certifica-
tion of election results that
come only after the mandato-
ry audits are completed.
The Supreme Court found
the issue of paper ballots irrel-
evant and the certification
portion unconstitutional. It
left unaddressed the issue of
audits.
Dent said she is filing the
"friendly lawsuit" to get clarifi-
cation on the issue.

County Web site allows online

tracking of census participation


FROM SARASOTA COUNTY


A Census Bureau "widget" has
been placed on the Sarasota County
Web site to track the county's mail
participation rate for the 2010 census
on a daily basis. The county Web site
is at www.scgov.net.
The Census Bureau also has posted
a searchable national map of partici-
pation in the census at http://2010.
census.gov/2010census/takelOmap.
The site contains information about
the current participation percentage


and 2000 census participation levels.
The Census Bureau is challenging
communities to achieve a higher rate in
2010 than they did in 2000. Nationally,
the goal is to beat the 2000 Census rate
of 72 percent.
Census data help determine how
more than $400 billion in federal
funds are distributed to state and
local areas each year. A complete
count of Sarasota County in the cen-
sus will help ensure that the county
gets its fair share of census-based
funding for the next 10 years.

Commission looks to levy final TDT half-cent


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER


Spurred on by the success of the
regattas held at Nathan Benderson
Park, the Sarasota County Commission
voted 5-0 Monday at its quarterly work-
shop to direct county staff to bring back
options for use of the final half-cent of
the Tourist Development Tax.


When it voted in July and revoted on
Feb. 19, the county commission tied
funding for the Benderson rowing facil-
ity, officially named the Aquatic Nature
Center, to the collection of one-half
cent of the TDT. Part of that half-cent,
or one-eighth of the final TDT cent, is
allocated to the rowing facility.
Jeff Seward, the county's chief finan-
cial planning officer, brought the issue


of the final TDT half-cent to the board
in a broader discussion of county eco-
nomic development incentives. He
said the remaining half-cent has the
potential to generate $1.2 million in
revenue annually, with $300,000
going to the rowing facility beginning
May 1. That's when the tax increases
from 4 cents to 4.5 cents.
Commissioner Shannon Staub made


a motion to direct county staff to bring
back a plan and options for the final half-
cent, with the rowing center a central
component of the plan. She tabled her
motion, however, after Commissioner
Nora Patterson, the current Tourist
Development Council chair, questioned
how the rowing center is to be funded.
Barbetta, who has been a proponent
of the rowing center, told his colleagues
the money should be used toward
"county assets" such as the rowing
facility.
"I just want it to get done as quickly
as possible," Barbetta said.
Later, in the update about the row-
ing facility, Paul Blackketter, the
Benderson Development Co. supervi-
sor for the project, said a small regat-
ta could draw about 2,000 while a big
regatta could bring about 50,000 peo-
ple to the area.
"It would have a tremendous impact
on Sarasota County and the region,"
Blackketter said.
John McCarthy, general manager of
county Parks and Recreation, said a
master plan is in development and may
be completed by June, including a
schematic of the area, and capital and
operating budgets. He said he expects
to present the master plan to the
county commission at its July 28
meeting, after it is reviewed by the
Park Advisory and Recreation Council
and the community.
Following the rowing facility presen-
tation, Staub's motion was taken off the
table and, with an amendment by
Patterson that it include cost estimates,
approved unanimously by the board.

Correction
An April 3 story on Mayor Ed Martin
and City Manager Isaac Turner's
meeting with Federal Aviation
Administration officials in Wash-
ington, D.C., listed an incorrect esti-
mate of expenses for the trip. The
correct estimate is $5,000. The
Gondolier Sun regrets the error.


Manasota Beach



facilities scaled back


BY STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County Parks
and Recreation Manager
John McCarthy did much
to quell objections over a
new restroom and other
facilities at the county's
Manasota Key public
beach.
"They all worked extra
overtime to listen to peo-
ple's needs, although it
will never be the perfect
project for everyone,"
said David Balliett.
He described the first
public meeting, last
month, on the topic of
beach improvements as
"contentious," especially
when it came to the
scope of the project and
plans to incorporate a
permanent concession
stand onto the property.
Many Manasota Key resi-
dents do not want a con-
cession stand there.
"I feel very positive
about the outcome
tonight about the park
and the community,"
Balliett said following
public discussion at the
meeting.
The existing restroom,
built in 1980, has three
stalls for women and
another three stalls for
men, which county offi-
cials see as inadequate
for the more than
471,000 visitors to the
public beach. The new
facilities will double the
stalls for men and
women, as well as adding
a family room. The coun-
ty hopes to begin con-


struction at the end of
this year.
Following the first pub-
lic meeting, McCarthy, the
engineers and architects
reduced the size of the
building, scaling back the
project to meet the resi-
dents' request that the
beach facility better reflect
the low-key ambience of
the Sarasota portion of
Manasota Key.
Audience members
seemed glad to hear that
the county no longer
intends to build a con-


iei


cession stand and even
called for the county to
end its contract with a
pushcart vendor at the
public beach.
"I think we can inves-
tigate the contract we
have with the current
vendor," McCarthy said.
"It would not be my
intent to extend that
contract. I haven't fully
explored what it would
take to cancel that con-
tract."

POLICE BEAT


Prayer didn't
stop assault
A 23-year-old woman bat-
tered a senior citizen on
Easter Sunday morning,
according to a Sarasota
County
Sheriff's Of-
fice report.
A deputy
arrived on
scene to find
the batterer
and thefe- -
male victim
outside the
residence. Solanes
The victim
was still on the phone with 9-
1-1 when the deputy arrived.
The victim was visiting with
family when the woman
showed up at the residence. At
first their meeting was a
happy one.
But soon the woman told
the victim of her drug prob-
lem and the two prayed
together for about an hour
and a half. The woman was
known to the deputy as a fre-
quent meth and IV pain pill
pusher from past dealings,
according to the report.
The woman told the victim
the only way to make her feel


better was for the victim to
have sex with her. The victim
went outside to get away from
the woman, but the woman
followed, grabbing and hug-
ging her and asking for sex.
This behavior was observed
by the deputy, who said the
victim kept telling the victim
to "stop" and "please let go,
you're going to hurt me."
The deputy intervened and
the woman tried pushing
against him to get to the vic-
tim before he put the woman
in the patrol car.
EMS was called to check
the woman's vitals as the dep-
uty said it was obvious she was
still on some kind of drugs,
though she denied that. She
did admit, however, to doing
meth as recently as the day
before.
Once the woman had been
medically cleared, she imme-
diately stripped her clothes off
and stood naked on the side
of the road asking, "Is this
what you want?" before being
put into the deputy's patrol
car and told to get dressed.
Elena Patricia Solanes, 23,
100 block Avenida de la Isla,
Nokomis, was arrested and
charged with battery on a per-
son 65 or older. Her bond is


$2,500.
Domestic battery
Joseph D. Slowik's wife had
to sneak out of the house to
call for help when her hus-
band battered her, according
to a Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office report.
Slowik and
his wife were
arguing
about her
daughter's .
husband '.
coming to
stay with -
them. The
wife said
Slowik be- Slowik
came angry
and grabbed her by the neck,
held her up against the bed-
room door, then hit her at least
two times around her left eye.
The wife said Slowik nor-
mally has her phone and will
not allow her to use it, so
because of that and fear of
further violence, she had to
wait until 4 a.m. to sneak out
of the house, go to her place of
employment and call the
sheriff's office to file the bat-
tery report. She said there
have been several other
domestic violence incidents,


but this is the first time she
has notified law enforcement.
The deputy observed several
large reddened marks on each
side of the victim's neck consis-
tent with fingernail marks from
trying to pry her husband's
hands from her neck and her
left eye and cheek were swollen
and bruised.
Slowik denied all of the al-
legations.
Slowik, 41, 900 block Jamica
Road, Venice, was arrested
and charged with domestic
battery. He received no bond.

in real estate closings and marketing issues.

also have held several free seminars for realtors concerning new banking
and financial laws. In a challenging economic market they have stepped
up to the plate and have gone beyond the norm to help realtor's complete
transactions."

Barbara Thompson, Manager of Riddell Law Group Venice office is very
active in the community. She serves on three committees with the Venice
Area Board of Realtor, has dedicated many years with Women's Sertoma
activities and volunteers on the Chambers Membership Committee.

Riddell Law Group's motto-"if you don't take care of your customers some-
body else will," is fitting for all business/organization modes of operation.

Adalbert Progner
With joy and sadness we
remember Adalbert Progner
and celebrate his life. Adalbert,
aka Albert, died peacefully in
his home in Venice, Fla., in his
102nd year on Wednesday,
March 24, 2010. He was born
in 1907 in Austria-Hungary in
the town of Unter-Metzen-
seifen.
During his early years in
Europe, Albert became a high-
ly skilled sausage maker and a
very successful entrepreneur.
As a young adult, Albert was an
exceptional hockey player,


SUN NEWSPAPERS 7A


skier and artist (oil painting).
Albert's happy, tranquil life was
then shattered by the greatest
calamity in history World
War II. Newly married, Albert
and his wife, Irma, lost every-
thing they had worked for a
beautiful home and very suc-
cessful business to the
Soviet hordes that imposed
their tyrannical rule on their
homeland. In 1945, they avoid-
ed imprisonment in a Soviet
gulag camp by undertaking a
long and dangerous journey to
freedom in the U.S.-occupied
zone in Germany. They immi-
grated to the United States in
1952 with their son, Walter,
and only their personal pos-
sessions. Through hard work
and good luck, he and Irma
were able to realize the Amer-
ican dream and in 1959 open-
ed a very successful German-
Hungarian butcher shop in
Philadelphia, Pa.
In 1970 they started yet
another new venture by pur-
chasing the Keystone Motel in
Cape May, N.J. It was at this
time that Albert renewed his
passion for painting, and dur-


ing the next 35 years produced
hundreds of beautiful works of
art. Nine years later, in 1978,
when most people would be in
retirement, he and his wife
built the beautiful Sea Crest
Inn, which to this day is still
family-owned and operated. A
businessman par excellence,
he will always be remembered
and loved by the many people
whose life he touched.
He was preceded in death by
his beloved wife, Irma; and was a
devoted and cherished father to
sons Walter (Mim) and Robert
(Cynthia); grandfather of Claire
Reed-Progner (Derek) and Ma-
ria Nixon (Brain); and great-
grandfather to Lea, Elena, Ju-
lianna, Brendan and Amelie.
Services: A memorial service
will be held at 11 a.m. Friday,
April 9, at Farley Funeral Home,
Venice. A graveside burial ser-
vice will be held at 11 a.m. on
April 14 at Greenmount Ceme-
tery, 4301 N. Front St., Philadel-
phia, Pa. Farley Funeral Home,
Venice, is handling the arrange-
ments. To send condolences,

Competition driving census response between communities


BY ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER


Every 10 years, the U.S. Cen-
sus Bureau generates competi-
tion between communities.
First they compete to see who
has higher response rates for
the form residents send back
to the Bureau. Then they com-
pete for federal funds and con-
gressional seats, based on the
results of the Census.
This year officials through-
out the area are promoting the
idea that they will be at a dis-
advantage in the bid for funds
if residents ignore the 2010
Census forms sent out in mid-
March.
Seeking to increase the
response rate, the bureau has
gone high tech, keeping score
with an online tool that tracks


and maps participation rates.
Developed in collaboration
with Google, the new maps on
the 2010 Census Web site
(www.census.gov) allow any-
one to track how well their
community is responding to
the count on a daily basis.
Armed with just a ZIP Code
or community name, residents
can go to the Web site and
monitor the degree to which
their neighbors have returned
forms.
"First and foremost, it's a
fairly transparent way of see-
ing how the actual enumera-
tion is unfolding," U.S. Census
Bureau media specialist Rob-
ert Crockett said. "It's one of
several concerted efforts to in-
crease the mail back or re-
sponse rate.
"This actually enables one


community to see what an
adjoining community, cities,
states and regions, are doing
versus their response rate, how
they are returning their Census
forms. It's to create a sense of
competitiveness.
"This is very important and
it's going to work."
Residents who do not fill
out forms from the initial mail-
ing will receive at least one
subsequent form in the mail.
Census workers then will
knock on doors and encourage
reluctant residents to supply
them the demographic infor-
mation.
This year, local officials are
encouraging residents to com-
plete Census forms, through
press releases sent to local
media and personally, from the
dais during televised meetings.


Communities are seeking
an accurate count for a bevy of
reasons. North Port, where the
population nearly tripled -
from 20,000 to 56,000, accord-
ing to the University of Florida
Bureau of Business and Eco-
nomic Research during the
past decade, stands to gain
funds and statewide recogni-
tion from the 2010 Census.
Officials in rural Arcadia,
where the population increas-
ed by only 23 residents from
2000-08, according to BEBR,
will want to avoid being under-
represented.
But BEBR estimates are like
the coach timing his best sprint-
er with a wristwatch they're
unofficial. It's the judge's elec-
tronic timing that matters. And
for the 2010 Census, the Bureau
is keeping score.


The bureau already has re-
ceived completed forms from
residents; a 34-percent mail
participation rate was achiev-
ed as of Monday. Completed
forms will be accepted by the
Bureau for approximately one
year. Between now and then,
residents and organizations
interested in an accurate
count, and the specter of a
competition between commu-
nities, are joining partnerships
and "complete count commit-
tees."
These partnerships and
committees are officially rec-
ognized by the bureau, which
appears to be pitting this year's
response rate against that of 10
years ago, when 72 percent of
Americans returned the forms.

VABR's Tallahassee agenda


GAE STEWART
REAL ESTATE COLUMNIST



Every year hundreds of
Realtors make the trek to
Tallahassee to visit our legisla-
tors and speak with them
about pertinent issues that
involve private property rights.
This year's trip is scheduled for
the second week in April.
I, along with Rory Dubin,
president-elect, Helen Moore,
political affairs chair, and Tom
Sponaugle, Realtor political
action committee chair, will
make the trip to represent our
Venice board. Here are a few of
the issues we will be address-
ing:
Appraisal management
companies these compa-
nies are currently unregulated
under Florida law. This is jeop-


ardizing the basis for real
estate transfers by undermin-
ing the credibility and accura-
cy of appraisals. Proposed
House Bill 303 and Senate bills
1552 and 2210 would require
that these companies operat-
ing in Florida register with the
Department of Business and
Professional Regulation. The
bills also intend to prevent
mortgage fraud by prohibiting
AMCs from taking action that
is intended to inappropriately
influence the independent
judgment of an appraiser in
developing and reporting a
real estate value. Accurate val-
uation to set the appropriate
selling price is in everyone's
best interest the buyer, the
seller and the lender.
Housing and the economy
- back in 1992, legislation was
passed to increase documen-
tary stamp taxes by 10 cents
per $100 of value to create a
dedicated source of revenue
for state and local housing
programs. Since its inception,
this trust fund the Sadowski
Trust Fund has enabled
nearly 200,000 families to pur-
chase homes. The legislature
capped the amount of money
going into the fund at $234
million. Unfortunately, since


then $531.9 million has been
taken from that fund for state
expenses other than housing.
The Realtors feel it is time to
restore the housing trust fund
money to its original intended
purpose.
The estimate by state econ-
omists is that doc stamp taxes
will provide nearly $200 mil-
lion in fiscal year 2010-11 for
the Sadowski Trust Fund.
Legislators are appropriating
$37.5 million for down pay-
ment assistance programs.
Realtors propose that funds
also be used to rehab single-
family homes and condos in
foreclosure. This would create
12,000 jobs and put some
Floridians back to work.
Reducing condo inventory
is the key to strengthening the
real estate market. For that rea-
son, Realtors are supporting
House bills 561 and 327 and
Senate Bill 840, which protect
bulk buyers from warranty
obligations and liabilities as-
signed to developers.
Property insurance -
Realtors are asking that legisla-
tors prevent the spread of mis-
information by repealing the
windstorm mitigation rating
disclosure as the disclosure
may be misleading.


Effective Jan. 1, 2011, sellers
of homes located in the wind-
borne debris region must pro-
vide buyers with a hurricane
resistance rating, which is
established by windstorm in-
spectors. However, these in-
spectors are no longer certified
by the state.
It is estimated that up to 50
percent of the mitigation pre-
mium discounts that Citizen's
Property Insurance Corpor-
ation offers may be false. The
result is that taxpayers will be
left paying the bill, in the form
of assessments, if a hurricane
strikes.
House Bill 545 and Senate
Bill 2190 address repealing the
rating disclosure and we sup-
port this.
When we return from Tal-
lahassee, I will provide an
update on the meetings with
our legislators.
Venice Realtors join all
Florida Realtors in promoting
private property rights and
supporting legislation that
truly protects the consumers'
American dream of owning a
home.

Gae Stewart is president of
the Venice Area Board of
Realtors.

Survey says: Season was OK

BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Merchants agree that what is said to be the coldest season
since record-keeping began 60 years ago significantly affected
business activity in downtown Venice.
Still, many merchants are feeling optimistic as the season
starts to wind down or doesn't.
Season will be extended this year by another couple of
months, said Fifi Queen, owner of Fifi's Fine Apparel, with stores
on West Venice and West Miami avenues.
"The cold weather delayed people coming and the season has
not peaked yet," she said.
The warm weather and sunshine of the last few days have
brought out the shoppers, so now Kathy Crisman, co-owner of
Dick's Shoes, 219 W. Venice Ave., is also looking forward to a good
spring. With an inventory consisting mostly of sandals nobody
needed in the cold, until now it has been a poor season for her.
For restaurants, business was good. Although the cold weath-
er did prevent visitors from using the beaches and discouraged
outside dining, inside dining increased at T.J. Carney's, 231 W
Venice Ave., according to owner Tom Carney.
Venice Centre Mall on West Tampa Avenue did much better
this year, with a lot more visitors and locals coming in out of the
cold for drinks and shopping. Patrick Keigher, manager of 0
Gallery & Cafe, 240 W Tampa Ave., said the season felt shorter as
condo users were leaving this week because of the early Easter.
It's been a great season for Kay Kropac of Cafe Venice, 116 W
Venice Ave. Indoor dining was preferred this season because of
the cold weather, as many visitors could only eat and shop.
Lunches were definitely up, but perhaps due to the economy,
some customers were foregoing eating dinner out.
Mike Shrode of Shrode Jewelry, 233 W Venice Ave., whose fam-
ily-owned business has been around for 62 years, was pretty
happy, and considered this year not a bad one at all. Business was
about the same or maybe a little less, because of the economy
and the rising price of gold.
Due to the weather, the new outside seating at Althea's, 220 W
Miami Ave., was often unusable, said Greg Silva, but diners cer-
tainly bought more appetizers and desserts.
"It was very good for me because the cold encouraged shop-
pers in and they kept coming back," said Sandy McGowan of
Sandy's Designer Clothing, 128 W Venice Ave.
It was busier last year, said Kerri Marshall of Kerri's Jewels &
Gems, 132 W Venice Ave. Still, she said, it was too cold for the
strolls this year. People wanted the beach and were disappointed
at the cooler weather, so it threw business off a little, and they are
still cautious about the economy. Recently, it was warmer in their
home states.
Daily retail is dependent upon the weather and it was going
really well except on cold days. Jeff O'Berry, Nifty Nic Nacs, 203 W
Venice Ave., is an advocate of evening shopping but because of
the cold there was no nighttime business in January and
February. Finally in March, the weather was warmer and busi-
ness really picked up. With an early Easter this year, it is really
going to pick up now and indications are that reservations at
county hotels are good for April.

Officials on lookout for giant African snails in South Florida


BY DANA SANCHEZ
STAFF WRITER

Florida wildlife and
agriculture officials hope
to avoid a repeat of an
ecological crisis from the
1960s, when a boy smug-
gled three giant African
snails into Miami as pets.
They got away and the
snail population explod-
ed to 18,000 within seven
years.
It took 10 years and $1
million to eradicate the
giant snails, which are
voracious eaters and can
cause structural damage

to buildings, according to
a report by the Florida
Department of Agricul-
ture, U.S. Department of
Agriculture and U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service.
For decades, Florida
was free of the giant mol-
lusks, which grow up to 8
inches long and 4.5 inch-
es in diameter.
But in January, state
and federal officials raid-
ed the home of a Hialeah
man after learning he
had a large box full of the
giant snails, according to
a March 11 report in the
Miami Herald.


"It's the only way you get an answ-
er," she said.
In the meantime, Dent said, the
county is going through the procure-
ment process for a "reputable, inde-
pendent and nonpartisan" auditor, as
per charter amendment so the county


State wildlife officials
confiscated the snails
and quickly conducted a
survey of the man's home
and surrounding area,
but found no more of
them, said Mark Fagan, a
spokesman for the Flor-
ida Department of Agri-
culture and Consumer
Services in Davie, Fla.
"That didn't surprise
us," Fagan said. "It was
very cold, so there was a
slim chance of finding
them."
Now that the weather
is warming, a second and
third survey are planned,


can be ready to go in the Aug. 24 pri-
mary election.
"We're covering all the bases," Dent
said.

Fagan said.
Once established, the
snails can "create a giant
swath of destruction,"
the report said.

FIRE from Page lA


on Wojtczak occasionally was
the first to attempt to douse
the flames, with a garden hose.
AVenice Police Department
officer showed up next but was
forced back by the heat and
smoke, Kona said.
"It was too hot by that time,"
he said. "In the kitchen, it was
probably already 1,000 degrees
at the ceiling. He just couldn't
get through.


"Our guys used a thermal-
imaging camera to locate her.
It was already that dark."
Firefighters use the camera
not only to find hot spots in a
fire when it is too thick with
smoke to see flames, but also
to identify body heat.
In this case, Kona said, fire-
fighters identified an "obvious
death" and set about fighting
the fire while protecting the


body to preserve evidence.
The Sarasota County med-
ical examiner's office will
determine the cause of death.
Most deaths under these cir-
cumstances are due to smoke
inhalation, Kona said.
"We haven't had to deal with
this in over 15 years," he said. "I
give the credit to our guys who
can get there so fast. Many
times they've been able to get


people out. Unfortunately,
with this one we didn't.
"It was obvious the fire
started in the kitchen near the
stove. There was some damage
also to the living room."
No other people or pets
were inside the residence at
the time of the fire.
Two state fire marshals are
investigating the cause of the
fire.


"This being our first death
in quite a few years, I'm sure
they are going to be thorough,"
Kona said.
A report is anticipated in a
week.
Wojtczak was the first fire-
related death within city
boundaries since the mid-
1990s.

the suspect to his moth-
er's North Port home
Monday morning.
The alleged shooter
gave up after about an
hour of negotiations with
police and was brought
to the VPD for question-
ing. Shortly after, para-
medics responded to the
VPD and removed the
suspect on a stretcher.
According to police, he
had started to overdose
while being questioned.
The victims and shoot-
er all have drug arrest
records. At one point, Hill-
ock had restraining orders
placed on the fathers of
her two children.
Obsessed
Hillock was visiting
Schaeffer at his Laurel
Avenue home around 1
a.m. Monday morning,
according to McNulty.
When the police ar-
rived, Hillock, 30, 300
block Dorchester Drive,
Venice, was in the pas-
senger seat of a car. She
was bleeding from gun-
shot wounds to the head,
according to a VPD inci-
dent report.
Schaeffer, seated in
the driveway, had been
shot in the left hand and
shoulder blade area, po-
lice said. Schaeffer, who
was blood-soaked and
had a towel wrapped
around his left hand, told
officers, "She's in the car,
she's shot in the head."
The victims were
flown by helicopter to


Bayfront Medical Center
in St. Petersburg, where
Hillock later died.
The shooter was al-
legedly friends with Hill-
ock and her ex-husband.
He was reportedly becom-
ing more and more "ob-
sessive" with Hillock,
whom he had known for
many years, according to
her family members. They
said he threatened her ex-
husband that he would kill
her and then himself.
According to McNulty,
Hillock is believed to have
been his target.
Rebuffed
At first, Abercrombie
suggested self-defense
might have been involved,
but upon being confront-
ed with certain facts by
detectives, McNulty said, it
became clear that was not
the case. At that point Ab-
ercrombie admitted to the
shootings.
He wanted to date
Hillock, but she would
have nothing to do with
him, McNulty said.
It was unclear if the
shooter even knew Schaef-
fer, 36, who resided at the
Laurel Avenue home, Mc-
Nulty said.
Police later learned
Schaeffer took Hillock's
purse across the street to
another home as Hillock
lay bleeding. Detectives
recovered the purse and
cordoned off that home
as well. McNulty said
police had yet to test the
contents for drugs, but

recuperating from his
wounds at Bayfront
Medical Center, his land-
lord was busy complet-
ing an eviction that was
served the day of the
shooting, according to a
witness.
The landlord tried to
evict Schaeffer from the
property two weeks ago,
but was turned away
after Schaeffer com-
plained to authorities
that he hadn't followed
Florida law, the witness
said.
Neighbors scooped up
Schaeffer's belongings -
including a truck cargo
case, TV, stereo, steer
horns and various pieces
of furniture as fast as
his landlord could set
them out front.
Police were called in to
observe from across the
street so neighbors
wouldn't fight over his


belongings.
"Hey, I'm taking that,"
yelled an area resident at
Schaeffer's next-door
neighbor.
"The heck you are," he
replied, and walked off
with a box of electronics.
He told reporters at
the scene he was trying
to save some of Schaef-
fer's belongings to return
to him.
Asked if he felt funny
taking Schaeffer's things
while he was in the hos-
pital, one resident shrug-
ged.
"If I don't take it,
somebody else will," he
said. "Get while the get-
tin's good."
He said he plans on
selling the scrap metal he
collected.
Later, a VPD officer
was standing watch to
give Schaffer's girlfriend a
chance to collect some of


their belongings.
Down the street, neigh-
bors were keeping a
watchful eye on the go-
ings-on.
Another neighbor, who
didn't want to be identi-
fied, dismissed the idea
of a love triangle as being
the motive in the shoot-
ings.
She said the real story
is ongoing drug sales in
the area.
"We've called the po-
lice numerous times ...,"
she said. "They know
who the drug dealers are
in this area."
The night before the
shooting, VPD officers
responded to a call near
the alley across the street
over a reported robbery.

OPINION


GONDOLIER SUN EDITOR
BOB MUDGE
bmudge@venicegondolier.com


OUR VIEW


Ideas are there, if someone will try them


Say "OPPAGA' three times and it
sounds like the soundtrack for a
television cartoon featuring can-
nibals dancing around a massive pot,
preparing a feast.
Actually OPPAGA is the acronym
for a state agency the Office of Pro-
gram Policy Analysis and Govern--
ment Accountability created by the
Florida Legislature.
It checks to see how taxpayer
money is being spent, and then
makes recommendations to lawmak-
ers.
OPPAGA just reported on ways to
reduce the cost of Florida's prison sys-
tem. In the next five years Florida's
prison population "is expected to
grow to over 115,000 inmates" and
that would require spending $862
million to build nine new prisons. The
agency suggests saving money by
"creating pilot programs" for "nonvio-
lent offenders" in their home com-
munities.


Florida's prison population has
grown 47 percent over the past 10
years, to 100,894. Multiply that by the
$20,414 it costs for every inmate
locked up for a year and you under-
stand OPPAGAs concern.
OPPAGA suggests those convicted
of nonviolent crimes drug charges,
fraud, property theft, burglary, weap-
ons charges might do their time
outside prison.
It contends that 40 percent of the
prison population could be dealt with
by the use of electronic monitoring,
probation and restitution centers,
day-reporting centers and substance-
abuse facilities.
OPPAGA admits that there is a risk
of new crimes being committed. But
costs would drop dramatically.
Savings could be used for schools,
highways, health care, law enforce-
ment and other projects.
OPPAGAs focus is much broader
than prisons. It has suggested modify-


ing compensation programs for the
state's 122,000 non-university em-
ployees whose wages and benefits
now total $6.5 billion. (Plus the
money paid for Social Security and
Medicare taxes). State workers have
generous benefits insurance, leave
time, and retirement packages and
10 holidays a year.
According to the report, 29 states
"have proposed or enacted" reduced
employee compensation to deal with
budget shortfalls. These include "hir-
ing freezes, layoffs, furloughs and
wage reductions." Some states are
reducing health and retirement bene-
fits, or are increasing employee con-
tributions.
OPPAGA sent seven pages of ways
to cut payroll costs to lawmakers.
Another report released in March
suggests ways to cut Medicaid fraud
and abuse.
Florida's Medicaid program is the
largest in the nation, serving 2.6 mil-


lion people. Last year it cost us $18.2
billion. Only part of that money
comes from Florida taxpayers. The
federal government pays into the pro-
gram, and money comes from drug
rebates, hospital taxes and contribu-
tions from the state's counties.
OPPAGA says its recommenda-
tions in the past to reduce fraud,
waste and abuse including the use
of an "array of detection methods"
plus penalties used in other states -
have not all been adopted.
For example, providers caught
overbilling are not always adequately
"sanctioned." Of 715 Florida provid-
ers who received $21.3 million in
overpayments, their fines totaled just
$776,822.
OPPAGAs list of ways to cut the
state's costs goes on and on. Instead of
a chant, "OPPAGA' could become a
cheer but only if the Legislature
and state agencies act on its recom-
mendations.

LANG CAPASSO
PUBLISHER


So, our U.S. Postal Service is
considering stopping mail
delivery on Saturday in an
effort to save money, Actually, I
had heard it was considering
going to mail delivery only
three days a week.
When you look at the eco-
nomic decisions it must make,
it does make sense. No one
writes any more; it is all e-mail
and texting or using the
phone. When was the last time
you saw a teenager without a
phone in his or her ear, or an
adult behind the wheel of a car
without one glued to his or her
ear? That's right you haven't.
Writing, as our parents knew it,
is a lost art that has been
replaced by the Internet.
Even though reason tells me
it must be done, I have to tell
you it is a service that I will
miss. My day starts with going
out and getting the newspaper,
strolling back to the house in
the darkness and heading for
the coffee maker to read the
paper and sip coffee. Can you
imagine a day that starts any
other way? It is something that
I have practiced and rehearsed
for so many years I have gotten
it down to a science. Take one
of those ingredients away, or
both, and I would be walking
into walls all day.
That is how I would feel if
you took a day of mail delivery
away from me. I have at times
sat on my porch watching the
mail truck coming with its
flashing warning lights. I will
sit there and watch it go all the
way up the street past my
house, turn around and hit my
side of the street all the way to
my house and past it.
When that little blue-and-


white truck doesn't stop I feel a
sense of isolation come over
me, like the world has forgot-
ten me. Oh, I know some will
say at least I didn't get any bills.
Don't worry, friends, they will
come tomorrow. Besides, I
would rather get one piece of
mail every day than skip a day
and get two the next day. Even
worse, that means an extra
dose of junk mail on the next
day.
Watching people come out
of their houses like ants, head-
ing to the mailbox and going
back, is something to observe
also. If you notice, they come
out staggered. Each exits the
abode as the mail truck stops
and each goes back to the
house in the same pattern. If
you think about it, it is like a
wave at a football game the
to-and-fro motion of people
leaving their homes seconds
apart and returning seconds
later.
I have to admit, junk mail
doesn't excite me. Electric,
water or Visa bills don't turn
me on either, but at least there
is a call for action with them.
They either go on the kitchen
table for payment that day or
get filed for later. Junk mail just
gets filed in the trash. Not a lot
of thought there.
Like full-service gas sta-
tions, bus terminals, doctors
who make house calls and the
milkman, the delivery of mail
will be something we will learn
to live without. Every once in a
while we will stumble on a
Norman Rockwell rendering of
a postman to revive the mem-
ory of what we once had.
No, I don't know my post-
man's name. He certainly
knows mine; has he has been
delivering my mail for years.
We wave, and he seems like a
nice guy. I am going to have to
go to my mailbox and at least
say "Hi" and meet him before
he too is gone from my drive-
way forever.
Well, at least I still have my
Gondolier Sun on Saturday
and Wednesday. Hope I am not
out of coffee.

Hands off our tax dollars

Home bound. I wonder if the Gondolier Sun would look into
something that I keep hearing about. I have heard that part of the
1-mill tax actually goes to other counties that don't have as much
money as Sarasota County. It's some kind of revenue sharing
that's required. If that's true, then the money is not staying in
Sarasota County. I don't know if this is true; could you look into
that please?
EDITOR'S NOTE: Some Sarasota County ad valorem tax revenue is
shared, through the state, with other counties for revenue equalization
purposes. The extra mill just reapproved for schools, however, stays in
the county.


Tarnished. Mayor Ed Mar-
tin says he was puzzled by
Marty Kretchman's criticism of
city council's decision on the
airport classification. It's not
hard to figure. He wants ex-
pansion for more jet traffic
when a large majority ofVenice
area residents don't want an
expansion. It makes one won-
der about his promises to work
with the residents to eliminate
objections such as noise and
odors when he was negotiating
the lease. The increased air
traffic over Venice through the
years has already tarnished the
ambience of the area. Let's not
have any more.
Not practical. Regarding
the valet parking on Venice
Avenue: It seems like it's taking
up four parking spots to have
people drop their cars off.
Those are prime parking spots
in the middle of downtown.
Why don't they reserve a cou-
ple of spots in the Centennial
parking lot? I don't think it's
feasible for the average citizen
to use it. I hope they do away
with it. It doesn't seem too
practical.
Gassed up. I have a ques-
tion I hope someone can an-
swer. I was in Tampa over the
weekend and gas was $2.51 a
gallon at most gas stations. The
week before I was in Punta
Gorda and Port Charlotte and
gas was running from $2.51 to
$2.53. Yet here in Venice gas is
running anywhere from $2.62
to $2.69. I'm just wondering,
can someone out there explain


Let 'em


Have It


why we're paying so much
more in the Venice area or
Sarasota County than in other
areas? I'd appreciate any re-
sponse.
Unchanging. Should devel-
opment on 776 be stopped
because residents want things
to stay as they are? Their think-
ing is, I've got mine, so the
heck with you. Nothing of
interest but a beautiful bay and
a beautiful Lemon Bay Beach
where one has to pay to park.
Before moving to Venice, we
rented in Englewood for sever-
al years nice place to visit,
not the place to live. That was


25 years ago and it really hasn't
changed since.
Take it on. I've just read
Herb Levine's most recent col-
umn in the Gondolier Sun. Al-
though I may not embrace all
of Mr. Levine's opinions, I ap-
plaud him for his knowledge
and no-nonsense approach to
issues. It is common knowl-
edge that many short-term
rentals have been remodeled
without benefit of city permit-
ting. This issue has been
voiced by at least one council
member as quoted in the
Gondolier Sun quite some time
ago. The city building depart-
ment, zoning and tax records
could clean this matter up in
short order. I would suggest Mr.
Levine take this issue to task.
With your expertise, I believe
positive results will be forth-
coming. I do not know Mr.
Levine and have never been a
member of theVenice Taxpayers
League, I'm just a 25-year resi-
dent of our beautiful city.
Absorption. The Nokomis
Volunteer Fire Department
sent a notice out that there is
only 37 percent of the commu-
nity supporting its annual fees.
Last year it was 45 percent. It's
using this as a scare tactic,
telling the people it will be cut-
ting back on its services. I think
it's about time that Nokomis
should be absorbed by Sara-
sota County. Maybe now is the
time to do it.
Free them. The question
being where the Sarasota
County School District could
make additional cuts: Up
North, you volunteer to be a
school board member. You are
not paid. You are not paid to
drive a car around with adver-
tising on it that says you are a
school board member. So,
that's where I see the cuts
being made.
EDITOR'S NOTE: The savings
from converting the school board
to a volunteer position would be
more symbolic than meaningful,
given the cost of running the dis-
trict.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Library cuts will
hurt everyone


.

loohcsn oc ovahk aerW1 (lUOW1 1$ s Editor:


Editor:
The time is now to let our state officials know that
their plans for Florida's education system will set us
back in terms of programs and graduation rates. A
partisan approach to lawmaking is pushing bad edu-
cational legislation through.
I hope that all citizens will voice their unhappiness
with plans to: eliminate teacher pay salaries that in
any way reward years of service or advanced degrees;
financially penalize school districts that do not align
with new guidelines; mandate massive program
change from the districts without fully funding them;
and set improbable graduation requirements.
The proposed merit pay system is damaging to
teachers, especially those with years of service and
strong educational credentials. New teachers will not
have job security. Students will be required to pass
end-of-the-year exams in Algebra I and II, geometry,
biology and chemistry or physics to graduate.
Sarasota County educators are very grateful for the
recently renewed referendum, which will generate
funds that can remain in our district. Our pleas
opposing new legislation or questioning what the
funding source will be have fallen on deaf ears due to
pressure from majority party leadership.
To our caring and supportive community, I ask that
you please call or e-mail your Florida representatives
on behalf of public schools and ask them to listen to
you.

Farrar is a teacher at Venice High School. The bill
in question has passed the Senate and a House com-
mittee, and is expected to go before the full House this
week.


On March 10, the Flor-
ida House and Senate
Transportation and Eco-
nomic Development Ap-
propriations committees
eliminated all state aid to
public libraries funding
from the budget for next
year.
Elimination of state aid
to public libraries will
force the closings of library
branches around the state
and make Florida libraries
ineligible for federal
grants.
In Sarasota County,
state aid funds of $259,384
were used for purchasing
materials: books, videos,
DVDs, etc. If we do not
receive state aid, we can-
not qualify for federal
assistance. In the past we
received federal funds for
the Born to Read Program
(totaling $500,000 over five
years). Federal funds
($69,345) are currently
paying for the system's
youth services coordin-
ator and youth programs.
This loss would be serious
to our whole system.
We are asking library
supporters and users to
contact local legislators
and the governor, as well


as legislative leaders, to
request they take the
steps necessary to con-
tinue funding state aid to
public libraries at this
year's $21.2 million level
in next year's budget.
For more information,

call your local Friends of
the Library group.

fewer boats

No overnight docking.
Listen to the city resi-
dents, not those out-of-
towners looking for a free
overnight dock.

open as frequently as

a little less boat traffic
would be a great benefit
for the taxpayers who live

I would like to thank
the two gentlemen who


helped me when I fell in
Publix's parking lot. They
were very kind, talking
with me to calm me
down. One man got Band-
Aids from his car, saying
he always has them as his

lives in Bridle Oaks and
was concerned about me
driving home.
Thank you again for
your kindness.

Try fixing what
really counts
Editor:
It is oft repeated that
the government should be
kept out of our bedrooms.
However, I fear that Rep.
Ed Homan will soon be
lurking in my kitchen.
The idea at this junc-
ture, with all of the trou-
bles facing us here in the
state of Florida, that the
food police are coming is
almost too much to bear.
The cost to restau-
rants alone to reprint
menus and try to get the
calorie count correct is
beyond comprehension.
The costs will be passed
on to the consumer.
Hey fatties, Big Bro-
ther will be watching!

the last chance
Editor:
'A chance to make a
few bucks."
This was the response
by the proprietor to my
complaint about my expe-
rience in a local restau-
rant. The table given to our
group of 10 depended
upon a sound system to
hear the night's entertain-
ment. It was malfunction-
ing. An attempt at repair
was unsuccessful.
I spoke afterward for
our group to the propri-
etor expressing our disap-
pointment. Without men-
tion of the show charge
we were required to pay, I
was told that it was his
chance to make a few
bucks and that anyone in
business would under-
stand this.
Businesses that take
unfair advantage of resi-
dents and visitors to Ven-
ice reflect badly on the city

Variety at the

pier, jetties

What is your favorite
inshore fish? If it is sheeps-
head, pompano or Spanish
mackerel, then you will have
a problem deciding because
they are all over the Venice
area. That isn't even counting
the cobia, ladyfish or king
mackerel.
As predicted, the sheeps-
head run has been extended
into at least the first two
weeks of this month. Up until
the last few days, the sheepie
bite has been better with the
incoming tide. Now the out-
going tide is cleaner and they
are biting on both moving
tides.
I only caught two sheepies
yesterday. I should have
caught about a dozen. Both
sheepies were about 13 to 14
inches. The best bite was at
the beginning and end of
each tide.
Most fishermen are con-
centrating on the macs, and
they are catching them at the
jetties, the pier and Casper-
sen Beach. Sheepies are hit-
ting on sand fleas, fiddlers
and shrimp while the macs
like spoons, jigs and even
shrimp. I saw a few 18- to 19-
inch macs caught at the jetty
but most were in the 13- to
16-inch range. Pompano are
hitting at the jetties and the
pier.
On Saturday, a family fish-
ing tournament for ages 5-17
will be held at the Venice
Municipal Pier from 8 to 11
a.m. Registration is at 7 a.m.,
and a continental breakfast
will be served. Entry fee is a
nonperishable item to add to
the boat in front of Sharky's
On The Pier.
Well, fellow Sheepshead-
ites, the time has come to say
goodbye until next week.

Mr Sheepshead is Dave
Hack. Contact him at

Indians shut out Manate


Iorio, Rhodes

pace Venice to win
BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

Venice's Joe lorio admits to
struggling this year but the
senior came through in one
of the biggest games of the
season.
lorio lined a run-scoring
double down the right field line
in the bottom of the sixth
inning as the Indians shut
down Manatee, 2-0, in an
important Class 5A-District 10
game at Venice High.
"This win means so much,"
said lorio. "I think everyone
knows I haven't been playing
up to my full potential, so to get
the game-winning hit, to come
through on the biggest games
of the year, feels really good."
The wins locks up at least
second seed in the district. Gulf
Coast, which also has two dis-
trict losses, has one more dis-
trict game remaining. A Gulf
Coast loss to Port Charlotte on
Friday would give Venice top
seed in the district. However, a
Gulf Coast victory gives Venice
the No. 2 seed.
Doing the job on the
mound was junior right-han-
der Aaron Rhodes, who limit-
ed the Hurricanes to just four
hits with seven strikeouts.
"I knew this was going to be
a close game because Manatee
is a good team," said Rhodes,
who raised his record to 4-1. 'A
few days before I was working
with my dad preparing a little
bit and it paid off. I was mainly
working on my curveball
because I haven't been throw-
ing it for strikes. I threw it for
strikes a little bit tonight. It was
better than before."
"I thought he had a pretty
good curveball," said Venice
coach Craig Faulkner. "What he
did have tonight was a good
sinker in. A lot of the guys were
tapping the ball back to him
because it was sinking. That
was his strength coming in."
In fact, Rhodes had five
putouts from his position.
"He is money every time he
is out there," said Faulkner. "He
gives us a chance to win every
time out because he doesn't
walk guys and throws the ball
where he wants to throw it.
Even when he doesn't have one
of his pitches that well, he still
can throw the other two for
strikes and that is tough in high

shutout as the Indians won, 2-0. He finished with seven strikeouts.


school baseball."
Venice (10-9), which has
won six of its last seven games,
finally got to Manatee starter
Josh Clemen in the bottom of
the sixth inning.
In the sixth inning, sopho-
more Michael Knott, the No. 9
hitter, led off with a single over
the second base. A sacrifice
bunt by James Browning moved
Knott to second base. Iorio then
lined a 0-2 pitch down the right-
field line to score pinch-runner
RexIngerick. Iorio stretched it to
a double just ahead of the throw
by the right fielder. Iorio then
stole third base and scored on a
wild pitch to the backstop.
"He started me off with two
curveballs and a lot of times they
don't come with three, so I was
looking fastball and just adjust
to the curveball (if he threw it),"
said lorio. "He threw a fastball
on the outside comer and I just
went with it to right field. With
one out and a guy on second in


the sixth inning, I knew if I got a
hit, we would win the game. I
was shaking a little bit. It feels
good to come through.
"Big clutch hit," Faulker said
about lorio's hit. "That's one
strength that he has that he
hasn't been using, is using the
right side of the field. He's strug-
gled a little bit. We said if you go
to the right side of the field, you
will hit the way you can hit. He
did it tonight. It was a great
piece of hitting. It was a big
senior move for him. Then to
steal third base was big because
the next pitch was a wild pitch.
Anytime you get two runs it's a
whole lot better than one."
The game was a classic
pitcher's duel between Rhodes
and Clemen. Rhodes allowed
just three hits through five
inning while Venice only had
two hits through five innings off
Clemen. Only two Manatee

first hiccup that was going to

part of the game."

runners reached scoring posi-
tion.
A walk and single put runners at
first and second with one out for
the Hurricanes in sixth inning.
Rhodes got out of the jam with two
straight strikeouts.
With a two-run lead in the sev-
enth inning, Rhodes was even
tougher.
"It took a lot of weight off my
shoulders." said Rhodes about the
lead. "It felt good and got me a lit-
tle pumped up."
Venice missed a chance to score
in the fifth inning. With one out,


Alec Stiver doubled into the right-
center field gap. A flyout moved
courtesy runner Bucky Maler to
third base. On a 1-0 count to Knott,
Maler tried to score by stealing
home but was called out by the
umpire.
"In that situation, we had a
lefty on a lefty. He was pretty
slow to the plate. He is pretty
savvy. If he wouldn't have sped
up quick and noticed it then we
would have been in better
shape."
Venice plays at North Port on
Thursday and hosts Riverview on

Manasota Scrub Preserve to expand due to acquisition


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

Proposed land acqui-
sitions in South County
highlighted the agendas
of both the joint Parks
Advisory and Recreation
Council/Environmentall
y Sensitive Lands Over-
sight Committee meeting
and the ESLOC meeting
that followed Thursday
afternoon at the County
Administration Center.
Sarasota County is
concluding negotiations
that will add nine north-
ern acres of the Lester C.
Hehn Estate to the Mana-
sota Scrub Preserve in
Englewood, according to
Belinda Perry, county
manager of natural ser-
vices.
The site is located
south of Manasota Beach
Road and west of Bridge
Street.
Once the deal is com-
pleted, including final
approval by the county
commission, the total
acreage will be 348 acres,
Perry said.
County commission-
ers had approved a con-
tract at their Jan. 26
meeting that assigned
the option to purchase
the parcel from the Con-
servation Foundation of
the Gulf Coast to the
county commission for
$364,608.
In a report during the
ESLOC meeting, Sean
Byrne, director of land
protection for the Con-
servation Foundation of
the Gulf Coast, said
CFGC is concluding its
final research on the
property. A closing is be-
ing scheduled by county
staff.
Perry reported to the
two advisory boards that
the prospective addition
includes a scrub area, a
citrus grove and a swamp
area. However, the coun-
ty is honing in on the
scrub area for its poten-
tial to continue the scrub
jay program, she said.
She reported Florida
scrub jays already have
been sighted on the
county-managed scrub
preserve.
"There are key indica-
tions the species is re-
turning," Perry told the
two boards.
The Florida scrub jay
and its habitat, nest and
eggs are protected by
state and federal endan-
gered species laws, ac-
cording to government
Web sites. Sarasota
County has the largest
scrub jay population in
western Florida, with
neighboring Charlotte
County home to the
third-largest.
Connector
In an update about the
acquisition of the Myak-
ka Ranchlands, Perry said
staff are "close to taking it
to the (county commis-
sion)."
The area "is a really
great connector" to both
Charlotte and Manatee
counties, she said.
Myakka Ranchlands is
the project name for two
areas on either side of
Myakka River State Park,
according to the Acqui-
sition and Restoration
Council of the state's
Florida Forever conser-
vation and recreation
lands acquisition pro-
gram. ARC voted the pro-
ject onto its A list in
December 2007 and it
went on the short list a
year later, Byrne said.
The properties include
a trio of ranches Hi


Hat, Longino and Wal-
ton. Hi Hat's 10,770 acres
are located in the north-
west part of the county.
The combined 7,969
acres of the Walton and
Longino ranches are in
the southeast, between
State Road 72 and In-


terstate 75.
According to Byrne,
CFGC has option con-
tracts pending with two
landowners and is in
negotiations with the
third. He did not name
the two landowners with
the option contracts.


Another Myakka Ranch-
land, 5,775 acres owned by
North Port Land Devel-
opment LLC, currently is
in preliminary discus-
sions.
CFGC also is in nego-
tiations for three Lemon
Bay-area parcels located


off Belvidere Road in
South Venice, totaling
8.57 acres. The first,
owned by Joy G. Pribble
and Robert W and Gary
C. Getman of Sarasota,
was assessed in 2009 at
$253,100. The second,
owned by William D. and


Deborah J. Balogh of
Englewood, was assessed
at $202,500, as was the
third, owned by John
Foster of Sherrills Ford,
N.C.

GIRLS' NIGHT OUT FUNDRAISER 12B


Venice's all-star, all-purpose venue

BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER


"They're coming to America," Neil Diamond tribute artist Jay White sang.
The audience clapped and cheered, obviously enjoying White's re-creation of
the look, sound and mannerisms of the famous entertainer.
Clad in a sparkling red shirt, White thrust his right hand into the air against the
backdrop of the American flag. The move signaled the end of his Feb. 13 show at
Venice Community Center.
"He's very good," said Kathy Scotton, a snowbird in the audience. "I think the
Venice Community Center puts on so many wonderful shows. It's a very nice
venue, a wonderful opportunity."
One month later, March 13, Dwight Icenhower returned to theVCC to perform
as an Elvis Presley tribute artist. Two weeks after that, the second annualVegas in
Venice casino fundraiser was held, sponsored by Friends of the Community
Center.
April also brings two Greg Rini variety shows (April 9 and 10), one featuring
songs and routines of Elvis, Sinatra and others and the other a Back to the Rat
Pack tribute show, both with proceeds going to St. Jude Children's Research
Hospital.
Peppered throughout the rest of April, and planned
for months beyond, are Sarasota Institute of Lifetime
Learning lectures, performances by the Venice
Concert Band and other musicians, and dance and fit-
ness classes such as Zumba, yoga and nonimpact aer-
obics.
In addition, free AARP tax preparation is ongoing
through mid-April in one of the center's meeting
rooms. The Venice Area Orchid Society holds its month-
ly meetings at the center, and all interested orchid grow-
ers are welcome to attend. All Faiths Food Bank distrib-
utes food allotments at the center, and the venue is also
a voting site.
The VCC, a hub of activity since 1977, has grown
tremendously since its extreme makeover in 2005. Some
say its growth is due to the promotional skills of Dorian
Mattox, county public relations director for the VCC for
three years. She has a long history of marketing, having
done it for NASA and the Department of Defense. She spent
18 years with the U.S. Air Force.
"We try to be a lot of things to a lot of people, and we're
right in your own backyard," Mattox said.
She said VCC's tagline is, "Your venue of choice for edu-
cational, cultural and social events in South Sarasota
County."

SUN PHOTOS BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
The Venice Community Center was built in 1977 to provide a venue
for clubs and organizations to meet and for people to use for bingo, card games and events
like weddings. The building stood as is until 2005 when a renovation was completed.


Right, Dorian Mattox is public relations director at the Venice
Community Center. She works for Sarasota County government
because the county operates the city of Venice-owned center.

CAN'T REMEMBER THE CAUSE


DR. DAN BUSCH, DR. ERENE ROMANSKI
CHIROPRACTOR
Have you ever had a painful back condition
and wondered what caused it? Problems
caused by misalignments of your spinal
column do not always make themselves
known immediately after stress.
The pain my come on gradually. Hours or
weeks may pass before the symptoms are
noticed, and by then you may not remember
the specific incident that caused the problem.
This can happen on the job when you are


distracted by the effort involved in
completing a task or assignment. Later, when
you feel pain in your back you may not
remember what caused it.
Injuries or stress to your spine that result
in misalignments may cause pain and not
only in your back but in other parts of your
body served by the nervous system that
flows through your spine. Through your
employer's workmen's compensation or
health insurance plan, you are entitled to
treatment for job related injuries and illness.

Venice High School college

night hosts hundreds


BY CAITLIN GREENE
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Students at Venice High School
know Kim Kindell as "the lady who
knows everything about college."
Kindell is the director of Rotary
Futures program, which is housed in a
portable building on the Venice High
School campus. The program is devot-
ed to scholarship and college informa-
tion.
The program is used extensively by
VHS students, so it wasn't surprising
that when Rotary Futures and VHS
teamed up to host the school's 2010
College Night, the turnout was huge.
The college night program, which
was sponsored by the Ed and Barbara
Strobel Fund of Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice, was the eighth
that VHS has held. A total of 61 colleges
sent representatives, and approximate-
ly 750 students and parents attended.
The purpose of College Night is to


give area high school students the
chance to talk to and learn about col-
leges from across the country. Of spe-
cial interest to many of those students
and their parents was information that
each college or university provided
regarding scholarships, some atten-
dees said.
This year's college night was not limit-
ed to Venice High students, Kindell said.
"We made a concerted effort to at-
tract students from other schools in
South County," she said. "We mailed
postcards to students at Venice, North
Port, Lemon Bay and Pine View high
schools."
Colleges such as Florida State Uni-
versity, the University of Florida, Ohio
State University and State College of
Florida were just a few of the 61 in at-
tendance.
Students and parents had two hours
to visit booths for each school.

High School Republican of the Year award at the Sarasota Republican Club's
Lincoln Dinner in March.
Cavallaro is a junior at VHS and ranks first in his class. He is president of the
National Honor Society, a member of the Spanish Honor Society, a varsity basket-
ball player, a Teen Court lawyer, a Little League volunteer coach and, most impor-
tant to the SRC, he is founder of the Republican Club at VHS.
He spearheaded the club two years ago by finding a more-than-qualified
teacher sponsor in Tom Marshall, former Sarasota County Teacher of the Year, and
by presenting the idea to principal Candace Millington.
The club currently has about 50 members and is very active in the community.

Sarasota County libraries 'float' to success


FROM SARASOTA
COUNTY
COMMUNICATIONS

The Sarasota County
library system was recog-
nized for its trend-setting
floating collection by the
Public Library Associ-
ation at its annual con-
ference in Portland, Ore.
The industry publica-
tion Library Journal,
www.libraryjournal.com,
singled out the Sarasota
County library system
and its "savvy staff" for
successfully implement-
ing a floating collection
process and document-
ing the road to its success
on its Web site, www.
sclibs.net/floating.aspx.
"It was a great honor
to be selected to present
information about our
successful floating col-
lection at the confer-
ence," said Sarabeth Kal-
ajian, general manager,


Sarasota County librar-
ies. "To be recognized on
a national level as a
leader in the field of li-
brary services is a real
testament to the dedica-
tion, imagination and
hard work of the staff in
the Sarasota County li-
brary system."
With its budget re-
duced by almost $1 mil-
lion, Sarasota County's
eight libraries needed to
find ways to reduce costs
and maintain services,
even though it's experi-
encing more than 2.7
million visits per year.
Balancing branch hours
for consistency and ex-
amining operations and
procedures was a good
start, but creating a float-
ing collection produced
efficiencies and notice-
able improvements.
Previously, if an item
was returned to a library
different from the one


where it was borrowed,
the item would be ship-
ped back to its original
library.
The process required
staff time to collect items
and separate them for
transfer. The floating col-
lection eliminates this
process. Items borrowed
from one library can be
returned to any library
and quickly placed on
shelves.
The change in statis-
tics was dramatic and
brought immediate relief
to staff and volunteers,
who were accustomed to
unpacking 20 or more
bins of items each day
that were returned from
other libraries.
Libraries were able to
reduce the number of
delivery trucks and dri-
vers.
The new system means
more items will be on
shelves for customers. If

ADVERTISEMENT
WORDS WORTH
HEARING


Vicki M. Connell
Doctor of Audiology
I have seen a lot of
advertising about an
invisible hearing aid
that you leave in your
ear all the time. Tell me
more about it

Invisible hearing aids like
the Lyric or the WOW are
a great idea, but it seems
that the negative aspects
outweigh the positive
ones. The advertising for
both says the devices fit
very deeply in the ear
canal and are seated just
before the eardrum. They
are so small that they
literally cannot be seen!
You can wear them 24
hours a day, sleep with
them, and shower with
them and there are no
controls to manipulate,
Each device has a battery
life of four months, so
every four months you
would need to return to
your audiologist and have
the old device removed
and a new device inserted.
The cost per ear is very
high at $1800 to $2,000
which is about three
times as much as you
would spend on the
most expensive digital
hearing aids available
today. Some persons
cannot wear these
instruments because the
size of their ear canal is
too small, or has too
much of a bend or they
have too severe a level
of hearing loss. Both
types of devices are
programmable but are
analog technology, not
digital technology and
no research has been


published
demonstrates
the devices


that
whether
provide


appropriate hearing
benefit. To learn more
and to see if you are a
candidate for these
extended wear devices,

ALL-STAR from Page 1 B
The Neil Diamond tribute show in
February was an example of the social
aspect of the center. These concerts are
offered in a cost-effective manner,
befitting a county-operated venue.
"The real Neil Diamond would have
cost $750,000," Mattox said. "We don't
have that kind of money, so we did a
tribute artist, and people loved it.
Besides, we don't have a large enough
room to bring in real artists. We did step
up, and we want shows to be priced
right. We are bringing in quality shows
at a good price, and people can attend
with their neighbors."
Serving as an entertainment center
was not always a main goal of the VCC,
first built in 1977.
Robert L. Anderson, a former county
commissioner, served as president of
Venice Chamber of Commerce in the
1970s and knows the center's history.
"One of the biggest problems was
the community did not have a place
large enough to meet," he said.
So representatives from service
clubs and community organizations,
such as Rotary, Sertoma, Optimist,
Lions and the chamber, decided to
have a community center as a perma-
nent location. Funds to build it came
from the city, county and individual
benefactors.
The result was a large enough build-
ing, owned by the city but operated by
the county, for groups to hold meetings
and people to enjoy playing bingo and
bridge or hold a wedding reception.

The building served its purpose well
until 2004-05 when a renovation of the
center was undertaken.
A gem for the city
Nancy Woodley, Ph.D., PE., Venice
assistant city manager, was a city engi-
neer during the renovation of Venice
Community Center, which was com-
pleted in 2005.
"The expanded facility is a gem for
the citizens and visitors of the commu-
nity to enjoy themselves," Woodley
said. "The venue has grown up a bit. It
offers exercise, dance classes and nicer,
bigger events with the expanded size
and enhanced facility."
She credits a lot of the increased
activity at VCC to Mattox's marketing
capabilities and the good working rela-
tionship between Mattox and the
county and the city.
Payment for the renovation in the
Northern Italian Renaissance style
came from a bond issue voted on by
referendum in 2003-04 and donations
from businesses and individuals. It cost
$4.6 million, according to the Sarasota
County government Web site.
Woodley said the city bundled four
major capital projects for the bond
issue, which included the VCC renova-
tion, the city's fishing pier at Sharky's,
Venice Beach renourishment and the
Tramonto Vista Park purchase, which
will open soon as Maxine Barritt Park.
Renovation was needed because the
building was nearing 30 years old and it

Study: Chocolate good for heart, in tiny amounts


BY LANDON HALL
THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER

Take a 3 Musketeers bar and cut it
into eight pieces. That's all the choco-
late you may have each day if you want
to lower your risk of suffering a heart
attack or stroke by 39 percent, one
study indicates.
German researchers have pro-
duced a study that builds on evidence
that chocolate, especially dark choco-
late, can aid the cardiovascular sys-
tem if taken in small probably
maddeningly small amounts.
The study, published in the
European Heart Journal, followed
19,357 adults age 35-65 over a span of
eight years. They filled out question-
naires asking them about their diet
and exercise habits. The subjects who
consumed an average of 7.5 grams of
chocolate a day had a significantly
lower incidence of heart attack or
stroke than those who consumed
much less chocolate, an average of


1.7 grams a day.
To illustrate just how utterly paltry
and unsatisfying an indulgence 7.5
grams (just over a quarter-ounce) of
chocolate is, I took five different
products and chopped them into
chunks of roughly that amount:
That's:
67 percent of an 11.2-gram Lindor
60 percent extra dark truffle ball.
12 percent of a 60.4-gram, longer-
than-usual 3 Musketeers bar.
18 percent of a 42-gram, four-wafer
KitKat bar
8 percent of a 90-gram, eight-
square Ghirardelli Midnight Reverie 86
percent cacao bar.
44 percent of a 17-gram Reese's
Milk Chocolate peanut butter egg.
Dr. Vinod Malhotra, a cardiologist
at Chapman Medical Center in
Orange, Calif., said there seems to be
a different report out each week say-
ing that chocolate is good for you, or
bad for you. But he was intrigued by
this particular study, because it came


from a respected peer-reviewed jour-
nal. "I'd like to study the study before
I really believe it, because it sounds
improbable," he said. "Something as
little as a bite of chocolate can lower
your risk of heart attack by 39 per-
cent? That's amazing."
Chocolate and some plants con-
tain flavonols, substances that help
widen blood vessels and thus reduce
blood pressure. Flavonols also
loosen up platelets that can stick
together and restrict blood flow, an
effect similar to that of taking low-
dose aspirin, a 2006 Johns Hopkins
study found.
The study was careful to caution
against eating too much chocolate,
however, since excessive fat and calo-
ries will wipe out any health gain. The
study's lead author, Brian Buijsse of
the German Institute of Human
Nutrition, recommended replacing
sugary or high-fat snacks with small
amounts of chocolate. Buijsse added
that "dark chocolate exhibits the


greatest effects, milk chocolate fewer,
and white chocolate no effects."
Some aren't convinced that choco-
late has any kind of therapeutic
effect. Dr. Jeffrey Feiner of South
Orange County Cardiology Group in
Laguna Hills, Calif., said that
although the findings "cannot be
ignored," the study was likely to "lead
to more harm than good."
"Everyone is looking for a quick,
happy fix," he wrote in an e-mail. "If
people increase their calories by not
substituting this very small amount
of chocolate for less healthy foods or
think this takes the place of more tra-
ditional treatments such as control-
ling hypertension, diabetes, not
smoking or taking stations for high
cholesterol, then they're fooling
themselves. All the above have a
much more profound effect on risk
reduction."

SOCIAL COLUMNIST


Ann Van Cott heard
Genevieve Pitturo, founder
of The Pajama Program, give
the keynote address at a
Women with a Purpose Event
in Sarasota. She learned
Valerie Dorr was promoting
the program locally, so Van
Cott stepped up and orga-
nized a Girls' Night Out at the
Venice Yacht Club to raise


awareness and collect paja-
mas and books.
"This program touches
everyone who hears that we
have over 1,000 children right
here in Sarasota County that
have never had a pair of p.j.s
or had a book or had any-
body to read to them at bed-
time," said Van Cott.
More than 200 women
came to the Yacht Club soiree,
including JoyMahler and Gina
Taylor from Big Brothers Big
Sisters and Wendy Deming
from Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice. In all,
they donated hundreds of
pajamas and books.
Their generosity touched
Van Cott's heart.
Brava, Ann and friends.
Celeb waiters rock and
roll for mental health
The annual question of
the year in Venice is, "What


will Bob Vedder wear when
he emcees the Celebrity
Waiter event?" This year he
was Gene Simmons.
Event co-chairs Kathy
Leavitt and Victoria Newman
brought together the per-
fect combination of waiters,
spenders and sponsors to
raise money for the cause.
Kudos to the staff at the
Venice Yacht Club, who also
rocked and rolled.
Community champions
Special thanks to mem-
bers of First Baptist Church of
Venice for their annual Easter
pageant, reminding us that
Easter celebrates the resur-
rection of Jesus.
Bravo to the Venice Area
Quilters' Guild for welcoming
thousands to its show.
One of our best
The special person of this


week is Ann Van Cott. This
nice lady organized the paja-
ma and book party at the
Venice Yacht Club. She has
served on the board of
Historic Spanish Point and
works as an environmental-
ist, striving to preserve pub-
lic land for future develop-
ment. As the wife of a mem-
ber of the Venice-Nokomis
Rotary Club, she rolls up her
sleeves and works at its
events.
She has a kind, loving
heart and brings her love of
life and love of giving to
everything she does. She is
one of those terrific Venice
ladies who has been here for-
ever and who never seems to
age in body or spirit.
Ann Van Cott is one of the
women who make Venice a
great place to live.

Visitors who are tough enough may
climb to the top of the lighthouse
tower, which, at 175 feet, is the
tallest in Florida. There are 203 steps,
and the view of the Atlantic Coast
and Ponce Inlet is extraordinary. The
other good news is that those 203
steps begin at ground level, unlike
the situation at other Florida light-

What are you

doing for summer

vacation?
Sarah Trembly hopes to realize a dream that began in sixth
grade. Her teacher, an anthropologist, shared
tales of Tanzania with the students.
Those who know Sarah as a actress at Venice Theatre,
may not know that she recently went back to school to
earn her RN degree as a nurse. In May, she will be within
one quarter of her RN from the State College of
Florida and on her way to Hoedspruit, South Africa,
to work with children orphaned by the AIDS epidemic.
Sarah hopes to depart May 28 from Fort Myers to join the
South Africa Medical Expeditions program
(www.sameonline.org/home.html). Hoedspruit is near Kruger
National Park, some 40 miles from the Mozambique border in the
Northeast corner of South Africa.
She paid $1,750 for her airline ticket and is seeking
help in funding the remaining $1,600 for expenses before
April 30.
Donations are tax-deductible. Send to SAME Inc.,
355 North Division Road, Petoskey, Ml 49770.
In the Memo Line, write: Sara Trembly May 2010 Trip, Travel
Expense.
Donors who include their mailing address and
zip code will receive a tax deductible receipt.

Premiere acts


coming to the Florida


International


Air Show


BY SHARE DERRICKSON
SUN CORRESPONDENT
There will be amazement in the sky and
delights on the ground, said Skip Hapner,
marketing director for the 2010 Florida
International Air Show, April 10 and 11 at the
Charlotte County Airport.
'We have some exciting performances for fly-
ing enthusiasts," Hapner said.
While the show will not have a military jet team
this year, it will bring in some other exciting and
unusual performers, he said.
One on the top of the list is a U.S. Marine
Corps Harrier AV-8B. Hapner explained the Har-
rier is a jet that can take off without a runway as
it hovers like a helicopter and then takes off as
a jet. "They call it a jump jet and it is an exciting
aircraft. We have been looking forward to being
able to get one, so that is going to be one of the
premiere acts."
There will be several different types of military
aircraft putting on demonstrations such as the
A-10 Thunderbolt, also known as the A-10 Wart-
hog, and the F6F Hellcat.
'We have people coming in that are some of
the top people in the business," he said.
Nationally renowned flyer Rob Holland will
be flying his MX2 Aerobatic Aircraft. "His act is
almost unbelievable. He has won many awards
and aerobatic championships."
Spectators will be dazzled, he said, by Man-
fred Radius, a glider pilot. "He is one of the top
glider pilots in the world and he is often called the


Sailplane Superstar because of his flying ability."
Another superstar who will perform, Hapner
said, is MattYounkin. "Usually, when you see
aerobatics, you find it is the older prop planes,
but he flies a twin engine Beech 18 aircraft and
he does aerobatics with it." Hapner added the
plane was never designed for aerobatic flight, but
Younkin manages to put on quite a show.
A special treat will be the appearance of John
Platt. "He is a world class performer and is an
Air National Guard guy and he will be taking off
down the runway in a jet car."
Much like the Harrier, Hapner said, the show
will have a Pitcarin AutoGyro, a much older
aircraft that is part airplane and part helicopter. "It
was developed during World War II and after the
war, many were supposed to be shipped back but
the boat they were on got sunk," he said. 'Theone
coming is the only one still flying in the world."
Those on the ground, he said, will surely
be enthralled by the U.S. Special Operations
Command Parachute Team. "They are all active
duty military that show precision and difficult
maneuvers."
Also, the E Team Skydivers, all dressed as
Elvis, who have been performing since 1971, will
jump with a giant U.S. flag as part of the opening
ceremony, Hapner said.
The AeroShell Demonstration Team fly-in what
will be its 21st year of performing in the show.
Besides the excitement in the air, there will be
plenty of exciting static displays on the ground
as well.


SUN PHOTOS BY SHARE DERRICKSON
The 2010 Florida International Air Show is April 10 and 11 at the Charlotte County Airport.


"We have a C-130 coming, a B-25, and a C-54
that flew during the Berlin Airlift and is somewhat
of a museum.
"The show will be jam packed from beginning
to end," he said of the two-day event. "I think it
will be a very unusual and exciting weekend for
the crowd.
"We will have a lot of things on the ground -
things for kids great food. Our food prices are
very low like $3.50 for a hamburger and drink.
One of the things this board does is to make it a


real family show and keep the prices down."
Gates will open at 9 a.m. both April 10 and 11
and flying will start around 10:30 a.m. Admission
is $18 for adults in advance and $20 at the gate,
and kids 2 to 12 cost $5. To purchase tickets in
advance, visit www.floridaairshow.com. "If you
purchase and print tickets online, there is also a
special place for you to park and gate for you to
come in," Hapner said.
The Charlotte County Airport is located on
Airport Road, Punta Gorda.

Universal announces Potter opening


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
he countdown to opening day of the
new Harry Potter land at Universal Or-
lando moved into overdrive with the an-
nouncement of the official opening: June 18.
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter will
include three themed attractions: Dragon
Challenge, Flight of the Hippogriff and Harry
Potter and the Forbidden Journey. The latter
is said to be the heart of the new land and will
feature stunning new technology designed to
immerse guests in what will be approximately
an hour-long experience.
According to Universal, it will be more than
simply a ride because of the newly developed
special effects that will not only envelop guests
within the scene but accompany guests with
robotic effects that add to the realism and
wonder of being able to soar over Hogwarts
castle with Harry, explore special places within
the castle and experience adventures once
confined to one's imagination.
Harry, Ron and Hermione lead the adven-
ture which includes a dragon attack, Quid-


ditch match and more in locations
familiar to readers of the famous
series, including Dumbledore's
office.
Under the direction of Thierry
Coup, creative director of the
new world, Universal designers
planned what is described as a
360-degree theme park experi-
ence that combines live action,
robotics and film. The result may
give new meaning to such terms
as 3-D, Surround Sound and
traditional theme park ride tech-
nology. According to Universal, lM
technology had to be invented
to make possible the adventure
which guests will experience finally
on June 18 at Orlando.
With a musical score by John Williams, 12
major scenes and a host of characters in addition
to Harry, the adventure will last about an hour.
To see a video and more photos of the
new attraction prior to opening day, visit
www.UniversalOrlando.com.

Visitors who are tough enough may
climb to the top of the lighthouse
tower, which, at 175 feet, is the tallest
in Florida. There are 203 steps, and the view
of the Atlantic Coast and Ponce Inlet is ex-
traordinary The other good news is that those
203 steps begin at ground level, unlike the
situation at other Florida lighthouses which
have additional steps to the base.
Formerly known as Mosquito Inlet, Ponce
Inlet, site of the lighthouse, is about 10 miles
south of Daytona Beach, that stretch of sand
where the Daytona car races once began.
Visitors can still drive onto the beach in


certain places and at certain times (when the
tide is out).
The lighthouse dates to 1887 and has
been beautifully restored. It is on the National
Register of Historic Places. It opens daily
at 10 a.m. and usually closes by 6 p.m. until
Memorial Day Summer hours are extended.
Admission is $5 per person for adults and
$1.50 for children 11 and under. Plan to spend
at least an hour at the lighthouse and Fresnel
lens museum.
The lighthouse is at 4931 South Peninsula
Drive, Ponce Inlet.

Who knew that John Seerey Lester could
write as well as he paints?
The proof is in his latest book, "Legends
of the Hunt" published earlier this year by
Legends Press. The launch coincided with the
100th anniversary of Theodore Roosevelt's
return from his East African Safari in 1910.
The stories are a charming bonus to Seerey
Lester's stunning wildlife art, printed on heavy
stock in three different editions, one of which
sold out during the Safari Club International
convention that coincided with the book's
launching in January.
Still available is a deluxe edition that comes
with a signed Seerey Lester print and the
standard edition published by Legends Press

BOOK
REVIEW --


The stories are Seerey Lester's retelling of
famous hunting legends such as Roosevelt,
Frederick Selous, Ernest Hemingway and oth-
ers of the era ranging from 1849 to 1933.

'Dearly Departed' offers macabre mayhem


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Allan Kollar stretches the parts of Delightful
and Clyde to the max in Venice Theatre's latest
production of "Dearly Departed," the play that puts
the fun in funeral.
Kollar plays up his own Southern roots to the
hilt while inhaling corn dogs, Dilly bars and all but
the lining of the potato chip bag in his portrayal
of Delightful dealing with the death of family patri-


arch Bud Turpin.
Did I mention that Kollar has virtually no lines?
Had there been fewer lines uttered by some of
the other characters, this production would have
been a total delight. Bud's death could have been
shorter. The food buffet could have been briefer
and there were a couple of sight gags during the
funeral that were not needed, but that is no fault of
the actors who all delivered on cue.
Jeremy Stone was just about perfect as the


ne'er-do-well son Royce. David Boza was a divine-
ly irreverent Reverend Hooker and Vanessa Rado-
van was over the top as Lucille who knows her
Bible inside and out, praise the Lord. Completing
a strong cast are Donna Hadley as Raynelle, Mike
Gilbert as Ray-Bud, Heather O'Dea as Suzanne,
Suzanne Coccia as Marguerite, Kay Crosby as
Veda, Steve Credeur as Norval, Eric Schneider as
Nadine and Candice Sullivan as Juanita.
Donna Buckalter's set design carried the action


everywhere needed and then some. Lighting was
by John Michael Andzulis with sound by Dorian
Boyd and Gabriela Gorka and direction by Kelly
Wynn Woodland.
"Dearly Departed" continues on Venice The-
atre's main stage through April 18. Tickets are
$24 per person for adults, $12 for students. Venice
Theatre is at 140 W. Tampa Ave., on the island in
downtown Venice. For tickets, visit www.venices-
tage.com or call 941-488-1115.

By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

More comedy hi-jinx hit the main stage Jan. 11-
30 with the comedy, "Love, Sex and the IRS."

stein musical, "The King and I."
April 5-23, "The Drowsy Chaperone Musical"
brings magic and music to the main stage.
"The Diary of Anne Frank Drama" closes the

War II.

Flying Dutchman and the Pirate's Curse" by local

Slip-Not bartender and manager Darlene Bishop chats with customers Steve Yancey and
Scott Burget during a momentary slow period. Both say she has a heart of gold.


BY SHARE DERRICKSON
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Darlene Bishop, a bartender and manager
at Biehl's Slip-Not Punta Gorda is one of
the best, co-owner Barbara Biehl said. But,
Bishop is also revered by many that frequent
the establishment as a selfless humanitar-
ian who goes out of her way to make others
happy.
Bishop became a bartender at the Slip-Not
almost 24 years ago and is not only a fixture
at the bar, but also has become instru-
mental in the day-to-day operations. "I
couldn't do without her," Biehl said.
Bishop moves easily from task to task,
always having a smile or a boisterous
and genuine laugh. "You can't do this
job without loving people," she said. "You
often are doing two to three things at a
time and also be able to carry on a con-
versation. I am always scanning to see if
anyone is needing something."
"Not all days are fun, but most are and
we have the same patrons year after year
- families too that come back because it
is family-friendly here."
She has become part of the Slip-Not
family, and family-like to many she comes
in contact with.
While Bishop considers herself tough
in that she doesn't allow things to get
out of hand, "That seldom, happens," she
said.
In conversation with patrons and Biehl,
Bishop is clearly more than a bartender
or a manager. She is a woman with a true
heart of compassion for others. "After
Hurricane Charley," Biehl said, "a woman
lost her trailer. Darlene felt so bad for her
that she took what she had and bought


Darlene Bishop is as humble as she is camera
shy. She has worked at the Slip-Not in Punta
Gorda for almost 25 years and enjoys hearing
about other people's lives and families, and
spends a lot of time on humanitarian projects.

her a new one and allowed the woman to
pay her back over time."
Bishop also cooked dinners and took
them to those who didn't have food.
"We had 27 people here that she
cooked for, plus she cooked for patrons in
the trailer park that used to be here and
took food to them."
Biehl isn't the only person who recog-
nizes Bishop's importance to the com-
munity. Steve Yancey of Port Charlotte
and a frequent customer at the Slip-Not,
said, "Darlene is the best person. Each
year around Christmas, she starts mak-
ing things blankets and quilts to give to
churches. Most people don't know this,
but she has the best and biggest heart."
Bishop shies away about talking about
her kindnesses out of humility, but Scott
Burget of Port Charlotte echoed Yancey
"She is wonderful and a great representa-
tive of this place. We are lucky to have her."
Slip-Not Lounge is located at 1601
Tamiami Trail, Punta Gorda. For more

Country club dining experience open to the public


BY SHARE DERRICKSON
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The atmosphere is that of non pretentious elegance
at Boca Royale Golf and Country Club's
restaurant in Englewood. It is how operators
Charlie and Mary Peacock wanted it to be a
place where the public could come and enjoy a
round of golf and then relax in one of their two
dining rooms that overlook the fairway.
Through the window, a flock of women were
gathered dressed in their finery with matching
hats, shoes, and gloves. It was time for high
tea. "This is a great place for events like this,"
Peacock said. "This is a very popular place for
luncheons."
Peacock, who retired from Marriott after 25
years, opened the country club's restaurant 10
years ago. "We like say this is fine dining in a


casual at atmosphere at a very affordable price.
We wanted it to be a place where people could
go and get great food and great service in a
beautiful setting."
And while business is good, many don't
know that the restaurant is open to the public.
"That is one of our biggest obstacles we face.
The public needs to know that they don't have
to be a member to eat here.
"Most people don't know the golf course is
open to the public either."
The food, he said, is top quality but afford-
able. "At night, we have prime rib that is really
good, fillet mignon, baby back ribs and a lot
of specialty salads. The left side of the menu
is lighter and the right side is more dinner en-
tr6es. And our prices are so very reasonable."
While the menu is mostly American fair, he

said, the restaurant also has other favorites
such as quesadias and hamburgers.
There are several dining experiences at the
Boca Royale a large homey room perfect for
having a lunch after a day on the golf course,
and a more elegant room suited for a celebra-
tory meal or romantic dinner date.
For dinner, he said, reservations are sug-
gested. The club has a loose dress code
where jackets are encouraged and "no denim,
please."


To the side is a charmingly-appointed room
used for smaller get-togethers and parties.
"We do a lot of wedding receptions, memorial
services, and rehearsal dinners," he said. "We
also have a wonderful Sunday brunch that runs
from $7 to $9. It is usually packed and it's good
to get reservations."
"Dinners run from $9 to $25. Our prime rib is
only $18.99 and that includes sides and salad.
"Our evenings are very busy. We served
more than 200 people last night."

BY SHARE DERRICKSON
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Local favorite and Florida folk/rock singer Jim
Morris and his Big Bamboo Band, are going to
not only host a four-day music event April 8-11,
but are bringing the legendary singer/songwriter
Jerry Jeff Walker with them.
Walker is best known for writing the smash hit,
"Mr. Bojangles." Playing with him, Morris said, will
be an honor. "He is a legend in Texas and (so is)
that whole anti-national outlaw movement with
Willie Nelson and those guys back in the 1970s.
Willie used to open for Jerry Jeff Walker back in
those days.
"We started the event, 'Magic on the Water' in
about 2004. We used to take a group of fans on a
trip somewhere around the country. After a while,
we heard people say they would like us to come
to Florida and visit some of the places we sing
about. I sing about Boca Grande, Cabbage Key,
and some of those spots," he said.
"We came in 2004 and it was really success-
ful so we started doing it on an annual basis, in
addition to the annual trip we take. We wanted
to do something different and brought in other
entertainers to play. And this year, we started
to do something even better. People who have
been influential in my career and the first person I
thought of was Jerry Jeff Walker."
The four-day Punta Gorda event will start at 7
p.m.Thursday with a "Welcome to Laishley Park"
concert that Morris said is limited to 200 tickets.
"There will be people coming in from all over the


country for this," he said.

reception and acoustic show at 7:30 p.m. at the
Charlotte Harbor Events and Conference Center
where he and his band will play some new songs
from their new CD, "Working Hard to do Nothing."
He said the usual turnout is around 250.
Saturday, there will be another concert at the
Charlotte Harbor Event and Conference Center
in Punta Gorda at 7 p.m. where Walker will join
the band on stage, and this event is limited to 500
people.
It will all culminate on Sunday with a CD
release party in Laishley Park at 1 p.m. where
Morris and the band will perform and sell and sign
copies of his new CD.
There is a four-day events package for $150
that covers the whole weekend. "It gets you into
some dinners and a goodie bag with the CD and
some surprises," Morris said.
Individual event tickets are also available with
Thursday's event costing $28; Friday's $28; Satur-
day's $75 and Sunday's will cost $29. CDs will be
sold for $16.50.
Morris said it is best to purchase tickets early

exception of Sunday's event at Laishley Park.

a good event that will benefit the community and
local businesses."

pre-Broadway run


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
A dynamite opening show has become the
signature of Michael Donald Edwards, the produc-
ing artistic director of Sarasota's Asolo Repertory
Company.
For the current season it was "Contact,"' a
collaborative effort with the Sarasota Ballet of
Florida. For the coming season it will "Bonnie &
Clyde," a new musical being prepped for Broad-
way. Think "Tale of Two Cities" which kept Sarasota
buzzing during the Rep's 49th season as "Tale"
moved from Sarasota to its eventual Broadway
opening in 2008. While that show did not have a
long run on the great White Way, Sarasota audi-
ences loved it.
"Bonnie & Clyde" the musical has music by
Frank Wildhown, lyrics by Don Black, book by Ivan
Menchell and is being directed and staged by
Jeff Calhoun. According to information from Asolo
Rep, a national talent search begins this month to


cast this pre-Broadway production. It will open the
Asolo season Nov. 19 in the Mertz Theatre at the
Florida State University Center for the Performing
Arts.
The rest of the season includes "Twelve Angry
Men" by Reginald Rose, "Boeing Boeing" by Marc
Camoletti, "La B te (The Beast) by David Hirson,
"Deathtrap" by Ira Levin, "Las Meninas" (The Wait-
ing Women) by Lynn Nottage and the one-man
show "George Gershwin Alone" by Hershey Felder
plus two additional titles that will be announced
later.
Also on tap for the year is an educational
outreach touring production of "Antigone Now" by
Melissa Cooper, featuring the third year class of
the FSU/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training.

FEATURES EDITOR
The dust had barely settled from the 2009
Ringling International Arts Festival, when organiz-
ers of that successful event stepped back up to
the plate with plans for 2010.
So much for a biennial event.
That seemed the sensible thing to do as the
first festival came together a year ago, attracting
crowds to virtually every event.
In March, the 2010 festival was announced
by Ringling Deputy Director Dwight Currie and
Baryshnikov Arts Center Director Stanford
Makishi who were on stage at the Historic Asolo
Theater.
Scheduled for Oct. 13-17, the second festival
will feature 11 stage productions with artists from
Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Britain, Russia,
Rumania, Canada and the U.S. It will include
sunset serenades on the terrace of Ca d'Zan,
the former Ringling winter home, a family fun fest
in the courtyard of the John and Mable Ringling
Museum of Art, three world premiers and three


United States premiers. Four of the premiers will
take place on opening night, Oct. 13. One premier
will be in a new venue, a tent pavilion owned by
the Forman Brothers who will present a unique
show of puppetry.There will be a party for first-
nighters in the art museum's courtyard.
Another premier features solos by Mikhail
Baryshnikov and David Neumann and a new
dance by Susan Marshall in the Mertz Theatre.
They will dance again Oct. 14 and 15.
The world premier of "Capricho" by Nilo Cruz
will be in the Historic Asolo Theater with additional
performances Thursday-Sunday.
A world premier of Glass and Bach for Solo
Violin will be in the Cook Theater.
Seven additional stage productions follow the
Night of Premiers, bringing the total performances
to 44.
Orders for four, six, and eight-performance
festival passes are being accepted at the Historic
Asolo Theater box office at the Ringling Museum
of Art, 5401 Bay Shore Road, Sarasota. Call 941-
360-7399. Single tickets go on sale May 15.

beverages at reasonable prices. Ticket holders
can stay all day, see as many films as they want,
and wine and dine on whatever interests them,
whenever they please, for probably less than
they'd spend at a local movie theater," Nagle said.
Approximately 200 films are scheduled to be
screened at the Fringe Festival.
Films by local filmmakers, featuring local resi-
dents, will also be a special feature of the festival,
including a short film about Bertha Palmer, whose
impact on Sarasota history and development is
currently being celebrated in the Bertha Palmer
2010 Sarasota Centennial."
The Fringe Festival will run concurrently with
the official Sarasota Film Festival. It was the
Sarasota Film Festival's mass mailing of rejection
notices to 350 applicants last year that inspired
Nagle and other disappointed filmmakers to
organize the Ofringe" festively.
The Fringe Festival will be held just steps away
from the Sarasota Film Festival screenings at the
Hollywood 20 Movie Theater.

Street Plaza, in downtown Sarasota, conveniently

available that people would like to see, but that
they are often rejected by some festival judge
simply because they weren't about a subject that
interested them.
'We're going to have three theaters set up,
each capable of seating 150-200 people, so festi-
val attendees can go from theater to theater, and
pick and choose whatever films that interest them."

$10 for adults and $5 for teenagers. Children
under 12 will be admitted free. A food court, "Taste
of the Fringe," created by Paul Mattison, will offer
