They came in suits and ties, casual
dress and camouflage hunting clothes
to remember Tyler Spann.
They packed the pews at Grace
United Methodist Church, stood
against the walls, filled the extra chairs
in the aisles and at the front of the
church. They were even invited to sit in
the choir loft.
They were the friends and family of
20-year-old Spann, who was shot and
killed by a Sarasota County Sheriff's
Deputy early Friday morning following
a "ding dong ditch" prank at the
deputy's house in Venice.
According to the sheriff's office,
deputy Carlos Verdoni chased Spann
and Chris Hayes after they pounded on
his door at 1 a.m. Verdoni caught up
with Spann and directed him to lie on
the ground, but Spann allegedly
attacked the deputy and tried to take
his gun. Verdoni fired two shots, killing
Spann. The incident remains under
investigation.
Angry and unsure of the circum-
stances that led to his death, Spann's
friends and family put those emotions


aside Tuesday to honor their son,
brother, nephew, friend and teammate.
On a large screen at the front of the
church, pictures of Spann's life followed
him from childhood, in between his
two sisters riding on their dad's back as
he crawled along the floor, through his
teen years and graduation from high
school. The pictures depicted him as a
fun-loving brother, son and friend, who
enjoyed sports, fishing and hunting.
As a little tyke in overalls, he rode a
toy four-wheeler only to grow up and
ride a real one. There were pictures of
him with his backpack waiting to go to
Garden Elementary School and in
swim trunks at the beach as well as
fishing with his dad and friends.
One woman in the audience talked
about Tyler taking his mother for a ride
on a jet ski for Mother's Day. She said
his mom was all smiles.
His favorite
His coaches, teammates and friends
cried as they talked of their love and
admiration for him.
Wrestling Coach Dan Kelly broke
down when he said he always gave the
"Coaches Award" to the athlete who
demonstrated leadership, dedication


Chris Hayes, who was with Tyler Spann the
night he was shot, said his friend wasn't
the type to attack a police officer. Spann
was shot early Friday morning after an
alleged struggle with a Sarasota County
Sheriff's deputy.

and success.
"But most important, I gave it to the
one who was my favorite. I gave it to
Tyler," he said in a choked voice. "He
will not be forgotten and will always be
a part of our lives."
Nick Coleman, Spann's football and
weightlifting coach, said Spann was a
true coach's player.
"He worked his tail off to attain
things someone his size wouldn't nor-
mally attain," he said through tears.
"He showed up on time and ready for
work."
Coleman said he prayed that all of
Spann's family and friends can find
peace during this difficult time.
James Leak, a neighbor of the
Spanns', talked about the way Spann
was raised to say "Hi, Mr. Leak," instead
of "Hey." He talked of Spann dutifully
mowing the family lawn and waving
cheerfully at passersby while Leak's
own children went off to various activi-
ties and left the lawn maintenance to
mom and dad.
Leak shared some of Spann's writ-
ings, in which he talked of his love for
and admiration of family and friends,

Anderson:

insurance

benefits OK

BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Are council member health
insurance benefits legal? City
Attorney Bob Anderson thinks
so.
He released a memo on the
issue on April 12 that says
council opted to grant the
benefits before a 1986 charter
amendment requiring that
any changes go to referendum.
Council Member Emilio
Carlesimo asked the question
a half year ago when council
members sought to make
themselves (if they participate)
and three retired members pay
a portion of their lifetime
health coverage, the same as
other employees.
They adopted an ordinance
last year requiring all sitting
members to contribute, but
put off the issue of retirees
paying into the plan, citing
contractual obligations.
Carlesimo had a broader
question: Who authorized the
benefit in the first place, and
should it have gone to a refer-
endum according to city code?
Anderson said the clerk's
office scoured records back 35
years but couldn't find any
mention of how the benefit

State: rentals

don't require

sprinklers

BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

The state deputy chief
financial officer has declared a
dozen grandfathered short-
term rentals in Venice are not
required to have automatic
sprinklers.
That's because the proper-
ties were initially licensed by
Department of Business and
Professional Regulations un-
der 2003 National Fire Pro-
tection Standards that did not
contain the automatic sprin-
kler system requirement.
Initially the Venice fire mar-
shal found the properties did
not have sprinklers or hard-
wired smoke detectors in all
sleeping rooms, or commer-
cial-grade fire extinguishers, or
larger rescue windows. The
city issued a 45-day warning to
comply.
But the potentially expen-
sive sprinkler system require-
ment sparked angry responses
from property owners who
claimed they should have
been grandfathered under the
old fire code. It had the ap-
pearance of an end-run around
a lawsuit settlement agreement
assuring that the short-term
rentals owned by Jacksonville
businessman Steve Milo and
others could remain in opera-
tion.
Milo threatened to sue the
city again if fire sprinklers were
required.
Original suit
Milo originally sued the city
in January 2008 to overturn a
ban on short-term rentals. A

EDITOR GREG GILES

Turtle lighting
workshop today
Venice residents
interested in what they
can do to help turtles
thrive while meeting the
letter of the law under a
proposed turtle lighting
ordinance will want to
attend a workshop today
(Wednesday) from 9 to
11:30 a.m. at city hall,
401 W Venice Ave., in
council chambers.
Rick Magee and
Thomas Jones, members
of the city's Environ-
mental Task Force, will
make introductory
remarks. Keri Nelson, of
Sarasota County Environ-
mental Services, will
describe how the Sarasota
County sea turtle protec-
tion ordinance works. The
proposed Venice ordi-
nance is largely based on
the county ordinance.
Kathleen Weeden, city
engineer, will give an
update about Venice
streetlight shielding.
A sea turtle lighting
workshop and certifica-
tion test will be conduct-
ed from 9:50 to 10:45 a.m.
by representatives of the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service and Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission.
Mote Marine's
Laboratory's Tony
Tucker and Jim Grimes
will be on hand to
answer questions.
City urges
FEMA appeal
City of Venice leaders
passed a resolution this
month urging Gov.
Charlie Crist to declare
an emergency within the
state, triggering Federal
Emergency Manage-
ment Agency assistance.
It specifically asks the
governor to appeal a


decision by FEMA
declining his request for
federal assistance to
homeowners suffering
from defective Chinese
drywall.
The governor made
the request on March 10
but FEMA rejected it two
days later.
The city resolution
also asks the governor to
activate all available
state and local emer-
gency relief funds.
It's the second resolu-
tion passed by the city
seeking state and federal
assistance on behalf of
homeowners in the
Venetian Golf & River
Club and Willow Chase
subdivisions. More than
50 homes have the
defective drywall.
Heat and humidity
cause the drywall to
release gases, which cre-
ates odors and corrodes
copper and other metal
surfaces. The drywall
damages air condition-
ers, electrical wiring,
copper plumbing, appli-
ances and electronics.
It's suspected to cause
health problems.
Homeowners affected
by the defective drywall
say their insurance com-
panies have denied cov-
erage and the developer
has refused to replace

POLICE BEAT
One strike too many
Ryan Daniel Jacobson
takes playing softball
seriously.
According to a
Sarasota County Sheriffs
Office report, an umpire
ejected
Jacob-
son
from a
coed
softball
game
on
Sunday.
Jacob-
son did- Jacobson
n't like
the call, so he charged
the umpire and pushed
him up against a fence,
put him in a headlock
and punched him in the
face. Other players
pulled Jacobson off the
umpire.
The umpire had a lac-
eration above his left eye
and went to the hospital
for treatment.
Two witnesses con-
firmed the umpire's
account of what hap-
pened, and Jacobson, 31,
100 block Reclinata
Circle, Venice, was
arrested and charged
with battery. His bond is
$750.

Battery
A wife's threat to call
the po-
lice led
to a
slap-
ping.
Ac-
cording
to the
Sarasota
County
Sheriff's Braga
Office


report, Glauber Braga
and his wife were argu-
ing over family issues
when he said he was
going to leave the house.
His wife told him she
would call the police if
he did because he had
been drinking alcohol.
That's when Braga
slapped her face. She
called 9-1-1.
When the deputy
arrived, he found the
wife crying and having
difficulty catching her
breath. She did not need
or request medical
attention, however.
Braga admitted he
slapped her.
Braga, 26, of Bay
Acres, Osprey, was
arrested and charged
with domestic battery.
He received no bond.

Planning commission

scrutinizes comp plan

BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

Two amendments to the Sarasota County Comp-
rehensive Plan were approved Thursday night by the
county planning commission, with the amendment
on the transportation chapter receiving the greater
attention.
During the short meeting at the county Admin-
istration Center in Sarasota, planning commissioners
voted 7-0 to approve the amendments revising transit
goals, and another amendment by the city of Sarasota
asking for an amendment to the Future Land Use
Chapter that would return 3,299 acres of city-owned
land from the major government use designation to a
rural designation on the FLU map.
Planning commissioners Christine Robinson and
Cheryl Luehr did not attend the meeting.
The proposed amendments now go to the Sarasota
County Commission for final approval and inclusion
with other county-initiated comp plan amendments.
The package of amendments will be sent to the state
Department of Community Affairs for compliance
review with state laws.
The proposed changes originally had been pre-
sented to the county commission in November, but
the board sent back the amendments with direction
to further review the impact of the policies.
On Thursday, Commission Vice Chair Marianne
Reilly, who lives in Venice, stated her concern that
South County residents would not be served ade-
quately by the changes to Sarah Blanchard, SCAT
senior planner, and SCAT staff member Anthony
Vallone, who presented the proposed amendments.
Reilly said she thought no changes were being
made to address South County needs. Then, calling
attention to a map of bus routes, Reilly said, "(The
routes) are woefully inadequate in South County."
She suggested SCAT "bite the bullet" regarding its
spending to enable routes to become more popular.
Reilly spoke of an express bus route with high rider-
ship that went from Jacaranda Boulevard to down-
town Sarasota but is no longer in service. She urged
SCAT to provide more routes in that vein.

his love of nature and the desire
to excel in sports.
Leak said Tyler wrote, "My
dad is my hero," in his senior
year at Venice High School, and
"You should always treat people
the way you want to be treated."
In his writings Spann said his
worst problem was procrastina-
tion. He confessed to making
mistakes, but said it was good if
you learned from them.

'Spannimal'
Because Spann learned to
hunt and fish at a young age and
loved sports so much, many
people, including his parents
Eddie and Carlene, came
dressed in camouflage in cele-


bration of his passions.
A high school teammate said
Spann was tough as nails and
strong as an ox.
"That's how he earned the
nickname 'Spannimal,' "he said.
No mention was made at the
celebration about the tragic
manner in which Spann died
except when Hayes, 21, spoke.
"Most of you know I was the
one who was with Tyler on that
night," he said. "Should we have
been doing what we were doing?
No. Should he be gone? No. He
wasn't the type of kid to attack a
police officer growing up and he
wasn't the type that night."
Pastor Jay Kowalski talked
about how the lives of Spann's
family and friends and the com-
munity have been turned


upside down this week.
"Twenty-year-olds don't die
like this," he said. "The secret to
getting through this is to
remember Tyler and all of his
aliveness, joy and the way he has
touched our lives."
Kowalski talked of the hurt,
pain, grief and shock the com-
munity is experiencing. He told
mourners as the weeks go by,
even more memories of Tyler
will surface and they can com-
fort another by sharing those in
the days to come.
"We know better this week
than we did last week that just
because we are good doesn't
mean bad things don't happen
to us," he said. "Remember
Tyler. Remember why Tyler was
the person he was. Remember


God's great love for us."
Kowalski told mourners he
knew many of them were angry
with God right now. He assured
them it was OK God can take
it.
"We wish it could be very dif-
ferent, but that is not the hand
that has been dealt to this fami-
ly," he said. "Remember, the
response is always love even
when it is undeserved. Handle it
with a smile and handle it with
love. Because what happens is,
that changes the world."
Danny Swain, Spann's uncle,
said he wanted to leave every-
one with one message.
"Hug your babies every time
you get a chance," he said.

judge agreed the city did
not have an ordinance
prohibiting the rentals
and thus could not ban
them unless it adopted
such an ordinance.
A settlement reached
in August 2009 paid
property owners Steve
and Sara Milo, their son,
Damaris Milo, Alan and
Cecilia Evans and Daniel
Cohen $300,000 in attor-

In 2009 the city adopt-

cause of neighborhood
complaints about noise,
trash and improper park-

An estimated 40 to 60
short-term rental prop-

many were found to be
operating without re-
quired state, county and
local permits and were
ordered to cease operat-
ing.
Those who were party
to the Milo lawsuit were
allowed to continue rent-
ing for another 15 years.

"Since the decision to
permit the mayor and
the other council mem-
bers to participate in the
city's group health insur-
ance plan was made
prior to the Dec. 2, 1986,
charter amendment, I
am of the opinion that no
referendum approval
was required in order to
provide this benefit,"
Anderson wrote.
"I'm not finished with
this issue," Carlesimo
said on Monday. "I've
made a request to look at
the documents that back
up that finding."
Anderson said months


ago the central issue is
how council members
first began to receive
retirement as part of their
compensation.
"The main question is
still unanswered," said
Carlesimo. "Are council
members considered
full-time or part-time?"
Anderson previously
said council members
are a special class unto
themselves and eligible
for benefits.
Carlesimo said that
was a city administrative
finding, not backed by
any legislative action.

WORDS WORTH
HEARING


Vicki M. Connell
Doctor of Audiology


Q. I like to listen to
music while I do my
walk each night. When
I put on the head-
phones, I have to turn
the music up loud in
order to hear it over all
the traffic noise. Is
there a better solution?

A. A friend of mine is an
avid runner, and like
you, enjoys listening to
music while exercising.
He plays his music on an
iPod which is a
particular kind of
personal listening
system which comes
with ear buds. The ear
buds kept falling out of
his ears so we fit him
with custom made ear
pieces. These custom-fit
ear molds can attach
directly to any pair of
ear bud headphones.
Now he can run
comfortably because his
headphones stay in his
ears. Additionally, he
said that he now turns
down the volume of his
music down because the
custom-fit ear molds
reduce a lot of traffic
noise. Cell phone users
can really benefit from
custom molds, which
can reduce outside
noises and allow for
hands-free cell use. If
you would like to hear
more about how custom-
fit ear pieces can
improve your listening
experiences, call the
Audiologists at
Woodmere Hearing &
Balance Centers, Inc.
at 492-4327. Special
custom ear molds are
available for musicians,
pilots and motorcycle
enthusiasts too.

MAINSTREET COLUMNIST

April 3 brought us Egg-
Stravaganza with more than
800 children and parents visit-
ing Centennial Park to search
for treasure. It was a great thing
for the whole community.
Thanks go to the Lions Club
members who scattered 6,000
eggs with the help of the
Warehouse volunteers. And,
First Baptist Church was a hit
with face painting.
Twelve merchants spon-
sored the baskets made up by
Kilwin's, and Celebration
Corner provided bunnies. Our
special guest, the Easter
Bunny, aka Peggy Martin, pro-
vided laughter and hugs to all.
Co-chairs for the event were
Kate Heddings of MainStreet
and Barry Sullivan of the Lions
Club.
Our own Sister Maureen of
Stillpoint Studio has been rec-
ognized by the School Sisters
of Notre Dame. They write that
"To visit the Web site of Sister
Maureen Michael Byrne is to
step into a world of vivid colors
and flowing waters not unlike
the seaside city of Venice, Fla.,
where she lives and works."
Sister Maureen's mission is "to
bring about a more truly
human world enhanced by
reverence and appreciation of
beauty." Venice is lucky to have
her.
April 10 brought our free
valet parking to a close for this
season. Any suggestions, sto-
ries or improvements would


be welcome. Contact me at the
MainStreet office at 484-6722.
On April 23, our free concert
in Centennial Park will start at
7 p.m.
Our last stroll of the season
will take place May 20, and we
are partnering with the Venice
Art Center. Join us to meet
local artists while we shop and
dine.
MainStreet has been mar-
keting Venice with TV advertis-
ing from St. Petersburg to
Naples for the last 18 months.
These ads feature local events,
streetscapes, individual mer-
chants, volunteers and historic
venues. The purpose is to draw
visitors to take day trips into
our town.
For the first time we are
going to extend this advertis-
ing to the East Coast counties
of Miami-Dade and Broward
with the objective of attracting
visitors for multiple days. Ads
will start running in May. Stay
tuned.
And we are all getting excit-
ed about the American Asso-
ciation of Community The-
atre's International Festival
2010, which is June 22-27 at
Venice Theatre. Twelve coun-
tries so far have signed up to
participate in this event. It is a
first for our theater, and op-
portunities exist to get in-
volved. Visit www.venicestage.

Oza Cafe owners go into inn business


ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST



In March, Gordon and
Zuzanna Shaw of Bradenton
purchased the Venetian
Breeze Inn, formerly Gulf
Breeze Inn, 1602 South
Tamiami Trail at the southern
junction of U.S. 41 Bypass and
U.S. 41 Business. They own
the Oza Cafe, 125 North
Tamiami Trail, formerly the
Espresso Room, which they
acquired last year as the first
move into this country to
expand into the restaurant
industry by their Canadian
corporations, Oza Inspections
and Oza Storage, with Oza
Realty in the Czech Republic.
Shaw is an environmental
consultant and his wife an


herbalist.
He said customers of the
Oza Cafe appreciate its new
blends of coffee and, following
sampling, he is soon to intro-
duce Oza's own brand of cof-
fee, which will eventually be
distributed throughout the
country.
The motel was built in the
'50s in three stages and
opened as the Candlelight
Inn. Since the recent acquisi-
tion it has been completely
gutted, with the original '50s-
style kitchenettes being torn
out. Several months of major
renovations will include
upgrading all the utilities.
When the rebuild is complet-
ed, Oza cafe manager Fanda
Plessi and the Shaws' daugh-
ter, Lucy, will manage the
renamed Oza Inn, which is
expected to reopen in mid-
summer.
Store opening
Opening Monday, April 26,
is Zak's Clothing and Gifts,

seeing all my old customers
and welcoming new cus-
tomers," said Karen Evanicki.

p.m. Monday through
Saturday. Call 485-6900.
Venice Curves closes
Curves for Women of
Venice, 1978 South Tamiami
Trail, suddenly closed last
weekend. Owners Anne and
Kip Tibbetts apologized for an
earlier than originally
announced closure date
because of last-minute cir-
cumstances beyond their con-
trol and health concerns.
Tibbetts confirmed that all
personal files have been
shredded.
The Curves for Women in
Osprey and North Port contin-
ue to offer programs and wel-
come Venice patrons. Call
966-9629.
After-market specialists
Specialists in after-market
auto accessories, Kelli
Flaherty and Nigel Hilton
have opened High Octane
Performance Parts &

pension kits to mini-trucks

ages, audio fitting, chrome

"We have items not found
at local auto-parts stores,
including bedliners for all
makes and models," said
Flaherty.
Graduating from
Englewood's Lemon Bay
School, he became a journey-
man electrician, but building
cars has been a hobby since
childhood.
Flaherty moved from
Grosse Ile, Mich., to the
Florida Keys becoming a
stone crab commercial fisher-
man for three years. Moving to
the west coast, he began dri-
ving semis and tractor-trailers.
He owns a 1996 Ranger

magazine. Hilton is building a
1996 extended-cab custom-
designed rock 'n' roll, lay flat,
lift up and down hot rod.

It is offering Kentucky
Derby logos in five sizes of vir-
tually unbreakable insulated

OPINION


GONDOLIER SUN EDITOR

OUR VIEW


Sheriff's policies need to be re-examined


What makes the shooting death
of 20-year-old Tyler Spann
especially tragic is the fact
that it was entirely avoidable.
In the first place, the victim could
have avoided conduct that set off a
fatal chain of events. In addition,
though, we have to question whether
accepted procedures of the Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office didn't play a
role in the outcome.
Here is an outline the facts that
have been established so far.
After drinking at the Old Venice
Pub in downtown Venice late Thurs-
day night, Spann and a friend were
walking home when they pounded
on the front door of off-duty Sarasota
County Sheriff's Deputy Carlos Ver-
doni. The young men did not do any
damage; from all appearances it was a
stupid, annoying prank. They banged
on the door and ran off.
It also was not the first time Ver-
doni and his neighbors had been ha-
rassed late at night. This incident


occurred just before 1 a.m.; an hour
earlier, Verdoni said later, someone
had rung his door bell and run off, so
we can assume his mood was, under-
standably, angry. Reportedly, there
also had been break-ins in the neigh-
borhood recently and Verdoni's car
had been vandalized, further increas-
ing tension.
Verdoni immediately grabbed his
gun, ran out of the house, jumped into
the patrol car parked in the driveway
and drove off in pursuit. He caught up
to Spann a few blocks away. The sher-
iff's office says Spann at first complied
with Verdoni's request to lie on the
ground while the officer called for
backup on his car radio.
But Spann got up and tackled the
deputy, knocking him to the ground
and causing his head to strike the
pavement. Verdoni told investigators
Spann tried to get his gun. During a
struggle, Verdoni fired two shots,
killing Spann.
At a press conference last Friday,


Sheriff Tom Knight said his office had
independent witnesses who saw the
struggle and confirmed the events.
Verdoni gave "clear verbal com-
mands." The young man was trying to
take the gun away from the deputy.
The officer feared for his life.
"We're confident these events are not
in dispute at this time," Knight said.
The completed investigation will
be turned over to the state attorney
for review, so the full details should be
made public in the future.
It's fair to acknowledge that Spann
put himself in a dangerous situation
in the first place. For some reason, he
attacked a police officer. But while
sheriff's office officials, said Verdoni
was following procedures, we wonder
whether those policies didn't con-
tribute to a tragic result.
These questions should be answer-
ed:
The sheriff's office maintains the
deputy had a "duty to take action'
when a crime was committed. Should


this extend to minor infractions ob-
served by a deputy?
Should the officer have called 911
or the Venice Police Department
before setting off in hot pursuit? Did
he take an inappropriate personal
risk by not calling in before running
out with a gun?
Is it appropriate for an armed offi-
cer to pursue someone, by himself,
for a minor offense, especially when
he was the victim? Shouldn't we
assume that his emotional response
to a personal affront might affect his
actions?
Should he have grabbed a Taser
instead of a gun?
How would any citizen react after
being stopped by someone with a
gun, dressed in shorts and flip-flops,
even though the person was in a
police car?
With these types of questions in
mind, sheriff's office policies need to
be reviewed and changed to avoid a
possible repeat in the future.


As the world turns


LANG CAPASSO
PUBLISHER


We all have that special
place we like to go when we
feel the world has gone amok
and we just need to get away.
When we were little it might
have been that special closet
where we were totally alone
and we were truly the master
of our destiny. Now it might be
a chair on the front porch, sit-
ting in the car at the jetty or
just taking the dog for a walk.
As I said in a previous col-
umn, every once in a while I
brown bag my lunch and sit
near the bridge by our build-
ing. Well, I have found another
place to plop myself. It is a pic-
nic table about 100 feet north
of that. You will recognize it as
the one with a sign that says
"In loving memory of our par-
ents, Fred and Ruth Collier."
I do not know who Fred and
Ruth are, or their children who
put the picnic table there on
the Venetian Waterway Park,
but I appreciate it. It is about as
calm a place as you will find.
Now, I must tell you that to get
the full effect of the relaxation
offered I would suggest you
face the water. If you face the
other way you are looking
dead into the back of a eight-
story building with the full
effect of an empty field to your
left. If by chance you sat down
with your back to the water, I
suggest you get up and put
your back to the building and
field.
If you get there too early you
might get the full impact of the
sun rising from the east to hit
you square in the eyes. If you


choose to sit down at 11 a.m.
or after, you should be in rela-
tively good shape.
As most of you know, you
get to stare at the beautiful old
train depot that is steeped in
Venice history. This will give
you time to reflect on what was
here and the importance of
preserving and maintaining
the past. It also reinforces your
reasons for moving here.
Look a little to the left and
see the boat launch and watch
families come and go as they
board and off-load. If there are
no families or children run-
ning around, observe the peo-
ple having lunch or, like you,
just enjoying the sun. If it is too
hot, next time go over to their
side of the waterway as some
of the benches there are in
shade.
The biggest attraction is the
hundreds of boats going back
and forth as they transverse
the Intracoastal Waterway.
There are boats of all sizes
from 14-footers to major
yachts to kayaks to barges.
It is probably not as relaxing
as sitting at the jetties and
observing the happenings, but
I have to tell you, for some-
thing a few hundred feet away,
it is not bad. As I said, the real
value of this venue is that you
get a better sense of who you
are, what is going on around
you, why you chose this area,
when could the world be any
better and where are you at
this time in your life.
Don't get me wrong I
don't put that much thought
into what I am doing as I sit
there and, like the boats, let the
world float by. I can tell you
this, though: For a little place
on this Earth, it is not bad for
solving the riddles of the uni-
verse in one of the most relax-
ing ways imaginable.
Saying "Hi" to the walkers,
joggers, skaters and bikers isn't
too bad either.

Gambling is a good bet

A gamble. This is a comment on losing 70,000 jobs at NASA

casinos in Florida. Forget the Indian reservations. Put them in
the hotels at the beach. Keep our beaches full and keep our
hotels full all year long. Why in the world do casinos have to be
on an Indian reservation? That sounds like a way for somebody
to make some money. They should be at a hotel and they should
be taxed in Florida to make up for job losses. Where are our

Florida coast controlled, but still here. Let's deeply examine

Start here. All this money
being spent by the govern-
ment and being given away,
yet it seems that no one cares
about the elderly of our coun-
try who are really living on
fixed incomes and are really
having it awfully hard. It would
be nice if Mrs. Obama would
have a task force to investigate
the nursing homes and assist-
ed-living homes that they're
trying to live in. Maybe she
could start in Venice. There's
no check on the night security.
In some places it's really fright-
ening. Alarms go off and
nobody knows why or who did
it or how to turn it off. And they
would wonder how the elderly
survive on such poor food.
Bad example. I'm con-
cerned about the ethics of the
teachers union or teachers or
students or parents. I am one of
the people who had a "defeat the
tax" sign in front of my house
and it was taken down. I don't
know when, but during the
night. In talking with other peo-
ple who opposed the 1-mill tax,
many, many signs were stolen
and I feel that is really unethical
behavior on the part of those
who wanted the tax It's not a
good example for our children
either.


Let 'em


Have It


Water them. We don't need
a bigger doggie poopy park.
Dig a pond for them instead.
Headgear. Manyyears ago I
had a small, collapsible umbrella
that fit onto my head. I didn't
have to hold onto it. I don't know
what it was called or who made
them. I really liked it and always
kept it in my car. Does anyone
know if they are still made and
where I might find one?
Feel-bad. Probably I will
not say this again, but I agree
with Sue Lang on the financial
blunders our administration
and council have made. If we
need millions of dollars right
now for an osmosis membrane,
did this happen overnight? A


cool million a year for 10 years
just to start? We have this feel-
good council that has commit-
ted $7 million to a performing-
arts center for the school. I ask,
who in hell is in charge of long-
range planning at city hall? Now
we add to that $7.5 million for
another feel-good park. This
endorses the fact that our city
council is either not very bright,
if they cannot plan for the future,
or just wants to raise taxes to
cover their backsides. We are not
living in a cash-rich society. Who
does not realize this? If they do
not, some heads need to roll.
Maybe this will blow over and we
can spend a half million dollars
on a paw park addition and real-
ly feel good.
Too much. In today's eco-
nomic struggle to stay com-
fortable, how can people af-
ford to attend an event, lun-
cheon, play, etc. that is more
than $20? I'd rather walk in the
park or on the beach for free.
Frivolous. What is happen-
ing to all of the lottery money
that they say the schools are
getting? I never hear about
how much money is going to
schools or what happens to it.
They need to cut back in the
schools. There's too many friv-
olous things going on there.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Lottery funds
still go to education, but their
availability makes it easy for the
Legislature to spend funds that
might go to education on other
things.
Bigger target. Efforts to out-
law the plastic grocery bag con-
tinue. Now consider this: If just
1,000 anti-grocery-bag environ-
mentalists would switch to 25-
mpg vehicles from their SUVs or
other large vehicles, more oil
would be saved than all the oil
used to make the bags in Sara-
sota County. The bags are useful.
The big vehicles are largely ego
trips. Lesson one: environmen-
talists must recognize and attack
the largest environmental wast-
es first. Lesson two: as Pogo, the
comic strip philosopher, would
say, we have met the environ-
mental enemy and it is us.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS

Circus is city's heritage

Editor:
Remembering Venice.
Just drive down Business 41 past the municipal
trailer park and see the beautiful artwork painted on
the outside walls of the Ringling Bros. Circus.
Venice was the home for the circus in November
and December as it rehearsed new acts for the com-
ing year; also it had its Clown College here.
Who could ever forget the wonderful animal acts
by Gunter Gebel-Williams and his family with the ele-
phants and tigers, or Charlie Bowman and his lions,
or Tito Gaona and his family with his high-wire and
trapeze acts? And who could ever forget Dolly Jacobs
working high above the circus arena, or the wonder-
ful, colorful circus clowns?
The circus owners approached our Venice city
managers and asked them to help repair the railroad
tracks because they were becoming unsafe to trans-
port their personnel and animals into the city. The city
refused to help them. As a result, the circus left Venice.
The circus building has been vacant since 1994 and
has been totally stripped of anything of value, and it is
vacant here in 2010, sitting on valuable property and
not earning the city any money. It has become known
as a big white elephant.
Now Tito Gaona would like to have the circus
remembered by having something built to honor it -
something that will attract people to visit our beauti-
ful city.

avoidance mode
Editor:
When the newspaper
provides space to spread
lies it really makes edu-
cated citizens question
reading it -just take it in
the bathroom, where it
has a use.
Not one statement
that Winston Wilmore
made was true or accu-
rate.
The U.S. Government
surplused property out-
side of the airport land or
in some cases gave the
property away to the
Coast Guard and Inland
Navigational District for
the construction of the
Intracoastal Waterway. It
was those actions that
landlocked this airport
from ever growing.
A safe, larger airport
cannot be squeezed into
the space the city owns.
There are many other
impacts an expansion of
the airport will have,
including county road-
ways, public parks, pub-
lic parking, Coast Guard
property, parkland with
endangered species, ac-
cess to the beaches and
enjoyment of the beach-
es, city roadways, many
more residents in South
Venice and the golf
course.
The FAA would like to
call the B-II plan a down-
grade because it wants to
avoid doing an environ-
mental impact state-
ment, which is required
when an airport is
expanded. An EIS would
show all the costly im-
pacts this community is
to suffer with an airport
expansion, and these
impacts are far more
reaching than one adja-
cent neighborhood.

answer with some ques-
tions.
Why do good things

pen to God's People," by
Warren W Wiersby.
Why evil? An easy
question. Why good? The

Israel is key
to peace
Editor:
Israel is a partner with
the us in the fight against
terrorism and is our most
important ally in the
Middle East.
Israel is under threat
of direct attack by Iran, a
country whose president
says he wants to wipe
Israel off the map and
has threatened America
as well.
The conflict between
Israel and the Palestin-
ians is about ideology
and religion. The two
sides will live in peace
only when they acknowl-
edge each other's right to
exist.
Christians, Palestin-
ians and Israeli Arabs
have the same right to
live in Jerusalem as the
Jewish people do. All reli-
gions are protected
under Israeli control.
Israel recognizes that
there is a Palestinian
people with a right to a
homeland. The problem
is, no Hamas leader will
say that there is a Jewish
people who have the his-
toric right to Israel, with
Jerusalem as its capitol. It
takes all sides to make
peace.
Jerusalem should be
shared but not divided.
Since Israel has the best
track record of safe-
guarding holy sites, it
should maintain control.
There are no easy lines
to draw to divide
Jerusalem. Jews live on
one block, Arabs another,
and some blocks are
mixed. Sewage, water
and the electric grid are
all shared and main-
tained by Israel for all res-
idents.
We need to remember
the meaning of the re-
cent holidays freedom


and openness. Israel and
its capitol, Jerusalem, em-
body those freedoms and
should be celebrated, not
divided.

Americans were
real winners
Editor:
Weeks after the event,
I am amazed at how few
Americans, including
sports writers, still do not
comprehend the stun-
ning victory of the young,
upstart American hockey
team won over the pro-
fessional staffed Cana-
dian team.
The two teams played
two complete games and
approximately one-third
of a period of sudden
death overtime. In the
two complete games, the
Canadians lost one and
tied one; the Americans
won one and tied one,
but they outscored the
Canadians seven goals to
five.
In the sudden death
overtime, the win was
decided, as is usually the
case, by a fluke or lucky
shot rather than by sus-
tained play. Even so, for
all the periods of play, the
Americans outscored the
Canadians seven goals to
six. By Olympic rules, the
Canadians are deemed to
have won the match, but
by the real terms of actu-
al play, the Americans
won.
Despite their raucous
celebrations and earnest
protests otherwise, deep
down, the true Canadian
aficionados of hockey
know the truth: their
team was beaten and
outplayed. They are cry-
ing in their Molsons.

Cat was in the chips
Editor:
We recently found a
beautiful, well-cared-for
cat. From the condition
of the animal, we knew
this was a cherished pet.
Because there was no
collar or tag, we called a
veterinarian from the
Yellow Pages who was lo-
cated near us. There would
be no charge for him to
check to see if the cat had
an identifying chip.
Dr. Michael Reinhart
(Jacaranda Animal Hos-
pital) discovered that our
new friend did have a
chip. However, it took the
staff many phone calls to
locate the owners. In the
meantime, Dr. Reinhart
offered to keep the cat
and care for him until
they could be reunited.
It was by chance that
we picked this vet. Lucky
us, lucky cat and lucky
owners.
Just a reminder: If you
have a cat or dog, it is
worthwhile having a chip
inserted to locate your
animal if it is lost. This
would not have had such
a happy ending without
one.
Also, how fortunate
the community is to have
such a compassionate
veterinarian.

Change council,
not airport

Editor:
I hope the voters wake
up when Venice City
Council elections come
up this fall.
This council has spent
more than $1 million of
the airport reserve funds
foolishly to support its
downsizing effort of the
Venice Municipal Airport
even though their hand-
picked consultant (DY)
advised against fighting
the FAA on the airport
designation downgrade.
Additionally, council
has lost valuable federal
stimulus funding that lo-
cal airports like Sarasota
and Charlotte County
used to create jobs and


make their airports more
attractive to aircraft and
pilots.
So how do we return
Venice airport the jewel
by the sea that it should
be? Vote this fall for new
council members more
in tune with Venice's
long-term needs.

Cutting delivery
a false saving
Editor:
Your article on elimi-
nating Saturday mail de-
livery was just a repeat of
Postmaster General
Potter's "plan for the fu-
ture." However, his plan
hasn't addressed the real
issue.
It's not the number of
the work forces or the
lower operating revenue.
They are minor factors.
The real issue is that the
Postal Service is required
to do something that no
other business or govern-
ment agency in this coun-
try is required to do. That is
the retiree health pre-
funding. The requirement
to pre-fund for the next 75
- yes 75 years, is to be
completed in 10 years.
This is in addition to pay-
ing current retiree health
benefits, another $5 billion
a year.
The report released by
the postal inspector gener-
al showed that the USPS
was overcharged $75 bil-
lion for postal pension
costs. Congress has the
power to correct this error.
It will also take Congress to
eliminate the Saturday
delivery.
Even with the recession
and drop in mail volume,
the Postal Service would
have made a profit over
the last three years if it
weren't overcharged. The
estimated $3.5 billion
annual saving by eliminat-
ing Saturday delivery is
only that an estimate.
However, the elimination
of Saturday delivery would
cost another 50,000 good
jobs, adding to unemploy-
ment.
So you might think
twice that the current eco-
nomics dictate the elimi-
nation of Saturday deliv-
ery.

Not the only conflict
Editor:
I believe that Venice
City Council made a great
mistake removing the
dockage for overnight
boaters at Higel Park. Un-
less there are noisy or dis-
ruptive boaters using the
dockage, what is the prob-
lem?
Steve Hamer, owner of
the Crow's Nest and also
the marina, was in favor of
removing dockage from
Higel Park. He was quoted
as saying that the free


space around the comer
conflicts with his business.
The business of the Crow's
Nest conflicts with the
rights of the public.
A few days ago I drove
to the South Jetty for some
relaxation and to watch
the crashing waves. I was
initially unable to find a
place to park in the lot and
needed to circle around
several times to find a
parking space. I saw a golf
cart driving in the jetty lot
with the name of the
Crow's Nest on it.
The golf cart is used to
shuttle Crow's Nest restau-
rant customers from the
public jetty lot, where their
cars are parked, to and
from the restaurant.
Should the public park-
ing spaces at the jetty be
used as secondary private
parking for the restaurant?
No, this is not fair. I, for
one, will never again be a
Crow's Nest customer.

Capping off
hat comments
Editor:
I do not consider it
acceptable for men to
wear caps while dining in
restaurants, or any other
gathering, for that mat-
ter. But, perhaps it is a
matter of generation gap.
In my day, my parents
would never allow it, and
I would be banned from
their table if I tried.
It is a matter of re-
spect, not one's right.
I wonder, sir, if you
would wear a cap while
attending services at the
house of worship of your
choice? Or, while enjoy-
ing a performance at the
Venice Little Theatre?
Yes, we all have the
right of choice. I choose
to dress appropriately for
the occasions. It is a mat-
ter of respect for others.
Enough said.

Time to stop


playing with words


BY JOHN YUROSKO
GUEST COLUMNIST


Now that Venice City
Council has made an
important judgment re-
garding our municipal
airport based on factual
data, a glimpse into some
of the pre-vote rhetoric
and hyperbole is in order.
Take, for instance, the
letters and blogs written
by those in favor of
downgrading the airport.
Frequently, the word "jet-
port" is used fear-
mongering at its worst by
implying that Venice
Municipal is to become a
jetport and that failing to
downgrade the airport
will somehow lead to 747
landings next week.
Well, with much less
than 5 percent of all doc-
umented operations be-
ing jet traffic, it seems a
significant prevarication
to use the term jetportt"
to describe anything
dealing with our airport,
now or in the future. Sen-
sationalism? Bet on it.
"Jetport" sounds more
ominous. Who knows,
we may next hear the
word spaceportt" shout-
ed out to the public.
"Expansion" is anoth-
er word the anti-airport
group likes to use.
Knowing that expansion
of the airport is physical-


ly impossible, why would
anyone choose to use the
word? More fear-mon-
gering.
Just who wanted to
"expand" the airport?
Truthfully, no one not
airport users, businesses
or the neighbors, or even
the FAA. Most people at
the airport just want a
safe, prosperous, mod-
ern airport.
So, why use the word
"expansion"? The simple
answer? To frighten the
public. The sad part is
that honest information
is difficult to find nowa-
days. City council sits
quietly while the most
outrageous falsehoods
are uttered from the po-
dium, and they are sec-
onded by certain council
members. The truth is
twisted more than a
piece of licorice.
Playing fair seems to
be an outmoded quality.
When false, misleading
and, yes, the wrong
words are used to de-
scribe something, pur-
posefully or not, most
likely it signifies either an
attempt to embellish a
cause or magnify a prop-
osition to gain credibility;
usually, that is what is
lost.
When concerned peo-
ple objectively and factu-
ally analyze and discuss
issues, avoiding superflu-
ous or irrelevant words,
much time is saved and a
clearer picture emerges,
resulting in a better un-
derstanding of the issues
at hand.

Pompano, macs

and bluefish

After all the months of
negative reports, it sure feels
good to have great news
week after week. One day, it is
the pompano and the next
day the macs. That is how it is
at the jetties. We also have a
new visitor the bluefish,
who were all around the jetty
the other morning.
One fisherman had five
pompano in five casts the
other day. Most of the experi-
enced fishermen are getting
the pomps on either the Silly
Willys or Doc's jigs. They are
letting the lure sink to the
bottom and then trying to
bounce it off the bottom as
they retrieve it. Most of the
pomps hit it as the lure
sinks to the bottom after
the bounce.
The same is true at the
Venice Municipal Pier. Some
days there are over a hun-
dred fishermen on the pier,
which shows how popular it
is to our community. Most of
the snowbirds are gone, so
this is mostly residents.
My opinion on the pier sit-
uation is this: Keep it free. This
is a huge draw for tourists
and snowbirds because of
the cost and also fishermen
don't need a license. Also,
non-fishing people love to
stroll out on the pier on a
warm evening. Charging
them would keep them away.
Some kind of system
needs to instituted to stop
the bad language and litter-
ing. A way to stop this would
be to close the pier from mid-
night to 6 a.m., particularly
on weekends.
Well, fellow Sheepshead-
ites, the time has come to say
goodbye until next week.

It only took 45 minutes for

runner-up Lakewood Ranch at

al title. The regional champ
qualifies for the Class 3A state
tournament scheduled for April
28 and 29 in Sanlando Park in
Altamonte Springs.
During the regular season,
Ranch won, 4-3.
This is the first regional win
for coach Barb Ginn in her 18
years at the helm as the Lady
Indians lost to Naples Gulf
Coast in the regional semifinals
the past two years.
"I told them if they had to
win today it would be history in
the making for them," said
Ginn. "We've been down this
road a couple times but we
were not successful. Leave it all
on the court and play it one
point at a time. They've done an

SPORTS EDITOR

Since the regular season
ended, Venice has worked on
its hitting extensively.
The top-seeded Lady
Indians showed its benefits
against Port Charlotte as
Venice pounded out 12 hits
in a 4-0 victory in the Class
5A-District 10 semifinals on
Tuesday at Venice High.
Venice (14-7) hosts Manatee
at 7 p.m. Thursday for the dis-
trict championship. Manatee
defeated Naples Gulf Coast, 8-
2, in their semifinal game.
Either way, the win against
the Lady Pirates guarantees
Venice a spot in the Class 5A-
Region 3 quarterfinals on
Tuesday, April 27.
The batters rocked Port
Charlotte pitcher Rachel Guz-
man, who tossed a no-hitter
against Charlotte in a first-
round game Monday, for
seven hits over the first two
innings.
The Lady Indians started
the game with four straight
singles by Kaytea Hatfield,
Kelly Ott, Chelsea Zgrabik and
Mel Dembinski knocked in the
first two runs with a single up
the middle.
"We waited for the right
pitch," said Dembinski. "We
swung at the pitches we
knew we could hit. In prac-
tice, all we've been working

"I knew they had the spring break
week off," said interim Venice coach
Pete Dombroski. "When we came back,
we really didn't hit well against Gulf
Coast (6 hits) and won that game then
we dropped our next two games. We

We are just hitting, hitting and hitting to

Venice added another run in the sec-

Express bus service moves ahead


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

Interest in a bus route
to Sarasota-Bradenton
International Airport from
North Port or Venice is a
familiar topic at public
meetings sponsored by
Sarasota County Area
Transit, but it isn't on
the April 28 meeting
agenda of the Sarasota
County Commission.
Instead, SCAT staff is
expected to request first-
year funding from the
commissioners for a
North Port express route
to the city of Sarasota,
according to Sarah
Blanchard, SCAT senior
planner. The request is
to match funding for
the project with the
Florida Department of
Transportation.
In September, SCAT
staff said a $1 million
grant from the U.S.
Department of Trans-
portation would be used
to advance the Sarasota
North-South Corridor Bus
Rapid Transit project. The
total cost of the project is
$80 million to $100 mil-
lion, staff said then.
Blanchard said Friday
that in the first year, the
express route would trav-
el from a park-and-ride
in North Port via Inter-
state 75 with limited stops
at Doctors Hospital and
Sarasota Memorial Hospi-
tal.
A second-year express
route would operate
between North Port,
Venice and Sarasota
pending second- and
third-year FDOT fund-
ing, which is limited.
FDOT funding expires
after the third year, she
said, forcing the county
to find its own funding
mechanism.
The express trips from
North Port to downtown
Sarasota would take
just less than an hour,
Blanchard said. Current-
ly, the trip starting at
Shoppes of North Port
on U.S. 41 would take
more than two hours and
involve a transfer at the
Venice Train Depot.
Express buses would
not be the regular SCAT
vehicles but motor coach-
es offering amenities such
as TV Wi-Fi and smart-
phones, Chad Engel,
SCAT maintenance man-
ager, told the Venice audi-
ence. There would be
space overhead for lug-
gage as well as a "massive
storage area" underneath
the bus.
Staff level
When SCAT held a
public meeting April 6 at
Venice City Hall regard-
ing the proposed elimi-
nation of the Route 26
Venice Connector and
changes to Routes 13
and 16, about 20 people
came to hear the details
and offer comments. As
proposed, Route 13
would eliminate some
of its current stops and
absorb some of Route 26.
The proposed changes
follow route modifications
made in October. Then
as now, the adjustments
were made due to low rid-
ership and a subsequent
need to time connections
between routes.
SCAT previously an-
nounced the section of
Route 26 operating on
the U.S. 41 Bypass would
be served by a stream-
lined Route 16 to Engle-
wood. The proposed
Route 16 would operate
via U.S. 41 Bypass and
not Venice Island.
The proposed Route
13 would be extended to
the Venice Walmart on
Jacaranda Boulevard via
Center Road, Shamrock


Boulevard, Alligator
Drive and U.S. 41.
Service from the U.S. 41
Business route between
Golf Drive and Avenida
del Circo would be elimi-


nated. ber meeting, however,
Additionally, Route 9 discussion included


would undergo minor
schedule changes to
improve connections.
The final trip from Venice
Train Depot to North Port
would be at 6:40 p.m.
Just as in the Septem-


queries about a direct
route from North Port to
the airport with attendees
recounting stories of one-
way limo or taxi trips to
the airport nearly reach-
ing $100.


Blanchard, who head-
ed the Venice meeting,
said SCAT is "looking at
an express bus route
from North Port" to the
airport. However, the dis-
cussion about a North

the area.
Commissioner Jon
Thaxton said the pur-
chase, which has taken
three and a half years to
negotiate, "is like a dream
coming true."
Thaxton said the land,
originally bought through
Environmentally Sensi-
tive Lands Acquisition
Protection Program funds,
is too sensitive for activi-
ties such as horseback
riding. "This opens the
playlist," he said of the
Walton purchase.
As planned, activities
along the trail corridor
would include hiking,
camping, horseback rid-
ing and, where possible,
traversing waterways.
The county commis-
sion is expected to ad-
dress a joint purchase of
the 3,890-acre Longino
Ranch that abuts the
Walton Ranch at the east
side in about two weeks.
Swiftmud is the partner
in that purchase also. As
part of the memoran-
dum, a conservation ease-
ment that is part of the
Longino parcel will have
90 percent ownership by
Swiftmud and 10 percent
by Sarasota County.
Agenda advances
With the purchases,
Sarasota County will be
able to create a 30-mile
trail corridor that also is a
connector from the My-
akka River in Sarasota
County to the Peace River
in Charlotte and DeSoto
counties. The key portion
in that connection is the
Swiftmud-managed R.V
Griffin Preserve, which is
east of Longino Ranch
and of North Port.
Almost without spend-
ing a penny, North Port
becomes a beneficiary of
the Environmentally Sen-
sitive Lands and Neigh-
borhood Parklands Pro-
tection Program approved
by voters in a 1999 referen-
dum and again in 2005.
The special tax levied has
provided the funding for
the program since first col-
lected in 2000.
Environmentally pro-
tected lands lie next to a
large portion of the city's
boundary lines, enabling
the city to advance its
ecotourism agenda.
"Obviously, with us
trying to expand and pro-
mote tourism in North
Port, the opportunity
now is there for us to pro-
mote ecotourism in our
city," said Allan Lane,
North Port's economic
development manager.
While the ability to
capitalize on the eco-
tourism opportunity is
welcome, Lane said, "I
need a site I can devel-
op."
That won't happen
with the Walton or Lon-
gino ranches, which are
expected to have their
natural areas remain
undisturbed.
Any plan to extend
Toledo Blade Boulevard
to State Road 72 also is
unlikely. Toledo Blade
stops at the southern
border of Walton Ranch,
but the sensitive nature
of the property makes it
very improbable the
county would allow the
road near an Interstate 75
exit to extend and be-
come a densely traveled
connector to S.R. 72.
Currently, Walton Ranch
is accessed by an un-
paved road Tropicaire
Boulevard off Toledo
Blade. Should a visitor
access point be projected
for that area, any type of
welcome center for
tourists or for bathroom
facilities could be a long
time coming.

BENEFIT CONCERT 12B


Its members are legion

BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER


Sixty-three years and two buildings after it was founded, American Legion
NO-VEL Post 159 has grown to be the largest veterans organization in
Venice.
"We've been here since 1947," said Commander Norm MacLellan.
He was seated in a conference room surrounded by photographs of post
activities and World War I and World War II memorabilia. A brown wool
World War I tunic uniform was carefully preserved behind the glass of a dis-
play case.
There are three veterans organizations in Venice: American Legion, with
2,230 Legionnaires, about 1,000 auxiliary members and 200 Sons of the
American Legion; Veterans of Foreign Wars, which totals a little more than
1,150 people 770 members and about 375 auxiliary; and Disabled
American Veterans with a total of about 1,000 people, composed of 850
members and the rest auxiliary.
The first American Legion building was located across from the Venice
Gondolier Sun building when there was no waterway or bridge. It had
been a barracks at the Venice Army Air Field and was given to the Legion.
Near it were the Loyal Order of Moose hall and the Elks Lodge.
In 2006, all three organizations got a new home.
"Mike Miller, Waterford Construction, built three new buildings
where he had property," MacLellan said. "He built this one for us and
one for the Moose (both at 1770 E. Venice Ave.) and the Elks Lodge off
Laurel Road."
Right, American Legion NO-VEL Post 159 has been in its
new location at 1770 E. Venice Ave. since 2006.

Purpose
The American Legion, 91 years old this year, exists to help fellow veterans
and their families. It was founded in 1919 in Paris, France, by members of the
A\mnI k.in Expeditionary Force.
.I h li \\tir was over and the men wanted to preserve the memories and fos-
it-i A\min iianism and communicate what servicemen did," MacLellan said.
Butl .i veterans age, across America, American Legion posts are closing,
.nI-CIIhnli to MacLellan.
SI h li bulk of our membership was World War II vets, and they are dying off
.11 th. i.ii' of 1,500 a day across the nation, according to national statistics,"
N 1.ic1 ..II1i said.
I I, said that there may be a consolidation of veterans organizations in the
ILiILtII"
Ilmin pillars form the ideological foundation of the Legion: 1) strong
ntionil security; 2) taking care of veterans; 3) mentoring youth (and com-
mmtini i, and promoting patriotism (Americanism) and honor.
In lullillment of those goals, the Legion sends $250 a month to Jacobsen
\,t.iIn, Home in Port Charlotte and a varying amount annually, depending
on mo n y left at year-end, to Fisher House, a national organization of places
rti.in, stay (there are 60 in Tampa). It also donates to Haley House in
limp.i. which pays the rent at motels for families visiting hospitalized vet-
In 2009, the Legion donated $30,000 locally, which includes $5,000
for four $1,250 scholarships to Venice-area high school stu-
S' dents and donations to Special Olympics and the local Paws For
Patriots program. NO-VEL Post 159 has a youth baseball team
coached by Venice High School's coach Craig Faulkner.
"They were No. 1 in the league last year," MacLellan said.
The Legion is the only veterans group with a Color Guard and
usually presents the colors on Veterans Day and Memorial Day.
It sponsored Veterans Day in 2009 at Patriots Park and will spon-
sor Memorial Day this year. It led the Venice Holiday Parade and
Sun Fiesta Parade in 2009.
Many clubs and organizations meet at the American Legion,
such as the German-American and Kiwanis clubs, and the ballroom
is rented out for weddings and memorial services.
Events at the club, which are principally for members and their
guests, include dinners and dancing. There are special parties,
such as Mardi Gras, Oktoberfest and a catered Christmas party.
The public is invited to open functions, such as when the presi-
dent of the Naval War College was at the Legion recently, and spe-
cial dances and Easter brunch. The public can eat lunch and
play bingo at the Legion, but because of licensing restrictions
nonmembers cannot buy alcohol there.

certificate to Post Commander Norm MacLellan March 16.

Auxiliary gives
In a never-ending quest to support active military, members of the
American Legion have been sending cards and nonperishable goods to
Americans stationed in Middle Eastern war zones. Items sent include hard
candies, soap, shampoo, white tube socks, peanuts and flip-top cans of
wieners and sausages.
'As long as there is a war going on, our efforts will be ongoing," said
Minnie Sloan, co-chair of the procurement and shipment of such items for
the American Legion Women's Auxiliary.
The effort involves everyone at the American Legion.
Since July 2009, the auxiliary has been sending cards and letters
filled with well-wishes along with nonperishable items to the troops in

* $12.50: the cost to mail one package to the
troops; in three years' time hundreds of packages

tary career, he earned more than a dozen awards,
including two each of the Bronze Star, Legion of
Merit and Purple Heart and four Army Meritorious
Service Medals. He and his wife, Ellen, have one
son who lives out of state with his wife and their
grandson.
* 4 chaplains: a priest, rabbi and two Protestant
clergy were aboard the USS Dorchester when it
was torpedoed and sunk in 1942. They gave away
their life preservers and prayed while the ship was
going down, and the Legion continually honors
their heroism and their memory.
* 1 chaplain: Loren Pittman, the sole chaplain at
the Legion, was honored on Four Chaplains Night
Feb. 6, 2010. He is a member of the Four
Chaplains Legion of Honor.

Afghanistan.
The response has been touching on both fronts.
The soldiers were so appreciative of the gifts that
members of the 354th Expeditionary Fighter
Squadron "Bulldogs" sent the Legion a certificate
and an American flag that was flown in honor of
those who gave the ultimate sacrifice during the
war. A card accompanying the flag says: "The flag
was flown by Col. Peter 'Gripper' Hunt aboard an A-
10C Warthog in Afghanistan on Nov. 25, 2009."
The auxiliary and Legion members were
touched by the return gift from the troops. On
March 16, Sloan and Judy Steimel, Auxiliary presi-
dent, presented the flag to MacLellan for the
Legion.

On Sunday, the Orlando Museum of Art will host Big Cypress Swamp and the Western
Everglades, the latest documentary by producer Elam Stolzfus, featuring photographer
Clyde Butcher, who has galleries in Venice and at the edge of Big Cypress Swamp where


he resides.

"For my part, I am
reaching out with my
exhibit, Big Cypress
Swamp: Western
Everglades, to begin a
new era based on an
understanding of
humanity's profound
connection with nature,"
Butcher said. "My
images will be presented
to the viewers with the
goal of helping them see
the beauty and sublime
order of the natural
world, throughout the
Big Cypress Swamp. My
hope is to educate and

inspire, to let people
know our land is a spe-
cial place, and the way
we take care of it deter-
mines the future quality
of life for our society."
The natural world of
Big Cypress Swamp is a
richly diverse wilderness
of subtropical flora and
fauna found nowhere
else in our country. It is
this exceptional beauty
that Butcher's black and
white photographs, and
Elam Stoltzfus' film,
captures. Big Cypress
Swamp consists of more


than 4,000 square miles
of land. The area is cov-
ered with cypress trees,
some more than 600
years old. Sixty inches of
rain fall in an average
year, creating a lush
wilderness of subtropi-
cal flora and fauna.
The documentary
Stoltzfus' documen-
tary complements the
exhibition at the OMA.
Stoltzfus is a nationally
acclaimed award-win-
ning master cinematog-
rapher. The film, "Big

Western Everglades,"
also airing on public
television, explores the
mysterious and secretive
environment of the Big
Cypress Swamp. Viewers
are treated to the rare
and primeval sights and
sounds of swamp expe-
ditions by foot, airboat,
swamp buggy and heli-
copter through the richly
diverse wilderness of
subtropical flora and
fauna found in the Big
Cypress Swamp.
The film also tells the
stories of the tireless
efforts to preserve and
manage the Big Cypress
region.
For two years
Stoltzfus and his crew
lugged the heavy equip-
ment required to make
the film through the
swamps, cypress strands
and sawgrass prairies of
the Big Cypress Swamp.


"My journey through
Big Cypress always
seemed like a gift to me,"
Stoltzfus commented.
"Every day nature pro-
vides its gifts in sunrises,
animal behaviors,
changing weather pat-
terns, landscapes and
sunsets. This is our gift
back.
"We hope that view-
ers will experience and
enjoy a small taste of the
beauty and fragility of
the deep swamps of
south Florida as they
view Big Cypress Swamp
- The Western Ever-
glades."

Yellowstone and
Yosemite, Butcher com-
poses his works at pris-
tine locations across the
Big Cypress Swamp, cre-
ating arresting composi-
tions that distinctly mark
him as the foremost
landscape photographer
in America today.
Butcher's photo-
graphs explore his per-
sonal relationship with
the environment. The
exquisite beauty and
depth of his work draw
the viewer into a rela-
tionship with nature. For
more than 40 years, he
has been preserving on
film the untouched areas
of the landscape. His
images are captured
with an 8- by 10-inch,
11- by 14-inch, and 12-
by 20-inch view camera.
The large format
camera allows him to
express the elaborate
detail and textures that
distinguish the intricacy
of the landscape. The
photographs range in
sizes from 8 by 10 inches
to 5 by 8 feet. The size of
his compositions allows
the viewer to experience
the beauty of the site
from an almost firsthand
perspective.
The Big Cypress
Swamp is a mysterious


and secretive environ-
ment. There are not
many people who brave
the difficult swamps and
cypress strands in order
to understand the beau-
ty and peace found in
more than a million
acres of swamps and
land located in the
Everglades ecosystem of
South Florida.

April showers the community with benefits


FRAN VALENCIC



Sam Pinkerton decided
teenagers in Venice needed a
chance to get together for
some fun and a cause. Since
she has her own band, As
Always, a concert seemed
like a perfect event, and rais-
ing money for Haiti provided
the cause.
About 200 young people
and families came to Grace


United Methodist Church
for the event. In addition to
music, they had refresh-
ments and were able to pur-
chase T-shirts. Sam attend-
ed to every detail, greeted
everyone at the door, per-
formed, and provided food
for the bands.
Bravo to Sam and every-
one involved.
Celebrating 41 years
Volunteers from Venice
Area Mobile Meals Inc., also
known as Meals on Wheels,
came together for their
annual breakfast. The
Kitchen Band of Country
Club Estates helped the
group celebrate 41 years
providing meals to the
homebound in Venice. The
count includes 160 meals a
day, six days a week, 52
weeks a year including holi-
days.


Three cheers and thanks
to all, and a special tip of the
hat to the president, Sherry
Eubanks.
With a song
in their hearts
On a recent Monday
evening, teddy bears and
their stuffed animal friends
lined the stage at Naar Hall for
the weekly Harmony Chorus
rehearsal. The toys enjoyed
the music and were happy
to be going to the Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office. Young
children are often victims of
events involving the police;
the stuffed animals become
special friends helping heal
wounds.
Hugs to members of
Harmony Chorus for not
only filling our hearts with
song but also putting music
into the hearts of needy
children.


One of our best
The special person of this
week is Sam Pinkerton.
This terrific Venice High
School senior saw a need in
our community and filled it.
She used her talents as a
musician and leader to orga-
nize a band concert. While
the main objective was to
raise money for Haiti, anoth-
er objective was to provide a
safe venue for teenagers of all
schools to get together and
have fun on a Friday night.
Three cheers to Sam for
walking the talk, rolling up
her sleeves and getting it
done. We hope this is the first
of many projects like this to
celebrate young people in
town.
Sam Pinkerton is one of
the teenagers who make
Venice a great place to live.

10 THEATRE
In the aftermath of hurricane Katrina,
some residents of New Orleans discov-
ered that the initial death and destruc-
tion was only the beginning.
That is the premise of John Biguenet's
"Shotgun."


Nancy Higgins has made a life out
of promoting the gaming experi-
ence. For 15 years, her company, On
the Road Again, has specialized in
promoting and hosting bus trips to
Biloxi, Miss. for a long weekend of
fun at the casino.

ROAD AGAIN

It is that time of year when theaters
along the Cultural Coast are
announcing their offerings for next
season.

Let's Go!
Features Editor


For 40 years

For 40 years, the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall has been

the scene of the best of the best.
Virtually any star you can think of has played the beloved
purple people seater. Tony Bennett has been there so many times,
it is a wonder there has not been a name change. Dorothy Hamill
skated there.
The Beach Boys rock the hall annually while adoring fans
bounce beach balls through the audience area, often to the conster-
nation of tech people in the sound booth located mid-hall.
Think of a Broadway show. That show has probably played the
Van Wezel.
The building was designed by William Wesley Peters of Frank
Lloyd Wright's Taliesin group and given its purple hue by Lloyd
Wright's widow Olgivanna who was inspired by the lining of a sea-
shell. Less well-known is that the building has a none-purple twin in
Edmondton, Oklahoma, nearly adjacent to Price Tower,
the only hotel in the U.S. designed by Lloyd Wright.
Peters returned to Sarasota a few years ago to oversee
the building's renovation, which made this area's most visible
landmark even better able to entertain and educate.
It also serves as an art museum, featuring the Fine Arts Society
collection of paintings by area artists.
To learn more, visit www.vanwezel.org.
Let there be cake!

'The Who'

PROVIDED BY THE PLAYERS
he Players Theatre wraps its Broadway
Series with 'The Who's Tommy" April 22-
May 2, with a possible extension through
May 9.
"Tommy," Peter Townshend's tale of a young
boy's journey from pain to triumph has become
one of the most electrifying events of rock and roll
ever to play on the stage. The double rock album,
written by The Who founder, Peter Townshend,
with additional music and lyrics by John Entwistle
and Keith Moon came out in 1969. In 1993 the
musical won five Tony Awards including Best
Score.
After witnessing the accidental murder of his
mother's lover by his father, Tommy is traumatized
into catatonia, and as the boy grows, he suffers
abuse at the hands of his sadistic relatives and
neighbors. As an adolescent, he's discovered
to have an uncanny knack for playing pinball,
and when his mother finally breaks through his
catatonia, he becomes an international pinball
superstar.
Putting together a Broadway series is all about
variety, and we love to wrap up a stellar season
with a musical like this one,Players Artistic Direc-
tor Jeffery Kin said. 'Tommy's" subject matter and


's Tommy'

style were a departure from the typical musicals
of previous generations, and it changed audi-
ence's expectations and opened the door for a
new kind of Broadway musical.
"Tommy" is directed and choreographed by
Jared E. Walker, with musical direction by Berry
Ayers and set design by Kirk V. Hughes.The show
features Tom Truitt, Zachary M. Lutz and Greg
Weigers playing Tommy and includes Jay Bow-
man, Leslie Dawley, Diane and Steve Dawson,
and Sheri Nadelman as the Acid Queen. Except
for the 7:30 p.m. opening night show, performanc-
es will be Tuesday through Saturday evenings at
8 p.m. and at 2 p.m. April 25 and May 1 and 2.
Entertainment at The Players, 838 North
Tamiami Trail, Sarasota, continues year 'round
with its Summer Sizzler Series and The Players
playwriting competition to be presented in June,
July and August. Subscription orders are now
being taken for The Players Broadway Series
for the 2010-2011 season ("The Fantasticks,"
"Oklahoma!" "Mame," "Big: the Musical," "Rumors,"
'The Producers" and "Victor Victoria").

Englewood company on the road to Biloxi


BY CHUCK BALLARO
SUN CORRESPONDENT
er office looks like a shrine to casinos,
complete with the fronts of slot machines
and pictures of some of the winners she
transported.
Nancy Higgins has made a life out of promot-
ing the gaming experience. For 15 years, her
company, On the Road Again, has specialized in
promoting and hosting bus trips to Biloxi, Miss. for
a long weekend of fun at the casino.
And she makes her customers enjoy every
minute, from the 11-hour bus trip each way to the
fun in-between.
"My dream wasn't to just throw them on the
bus," Higgins said from her small office on S.
McCall Road in Englewood with her officemate,
Jackpot, her parakeet. "My goal was to design a
tour to make people want to go again."
Higgins said she has a loyal following, some of
whom have gone to Biloxi since she started On
the Road Again in 1995. But since many of her
customers are seniors, she always seeks new
customers as the old ones get too old to
make the trip.
"We get some younger people, but they
have to get time off from work," Hig-
gins said. "Most of those who come are
seniors."
The trip to Biloxi is made much shorter
by the escort, who helps the passengers
bide their time with movies, bingo and food.
Those who make the trip are picked up at desig-
nated locations throughout Southwest Florida, from
Naples to Tampa.
Those on the bus stay in Biloxi for four days and
three nights atthe Isleof Capri Resort&Casino.Itosts $219


per person, wth hotel and most
meals induded. Italso indudes

erseamcompswhenthere.
No worries, no driving,
no gas burned, while play-
ing and enjoying a beautiful
gulf city, all at a bargain
price.
And you could hit the
jackpot.
'We had a customer who J
won $25,000 a few years ago:'
Higgins said as she showed m.. l
the picture.'We take 54 MM iM J1
people, and some hit good" ImiinInnI I
'We gear our business IllI 111111111111

She started On The
Road Again shortly after
moving to Florida. She did trips to New Orleans in
the beginning, but soon settled on trips to Biloxi.
Business was great for a long time.
And then Katrina came in 2005. The city was
pulverized and Higgins had to organize trips to
other destinations for more than a year until Biloxi

got back on its feet.
"It's a completely different city now," Higgins
said. "A lot of the casinos we went to aren't there
anymore."
Somehow, through that and the rough econo-
my, On the Road Again made it through. During
the season she did trips every week, including


special ones for local groups like Rotunda, Har-
bor Cove and Venice Isles.
Higgins has trips planned for May 9, May 30
and June 13, with more upcoming. For more info,
call Higgins at 941-473-1481 or 800-284-1015, or
visit her at 1546 S. McCall Road in Englewood.
Who knows, maybe you'll hit the jackpot.

Florida Studio Theatre's 'Shotgun'

explore's Katrina's aftermath


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, some
residents of New Orleans discovered that
the initial death and destruction was only the
beginning.
That is the premise of John Biguenet's "Shotgun"
which premiered April 7 at Sarasota's Florida Studio
Theatre where it runs through May 29.
Mattie Godchaux (Maya Lynne Robinson) is a
single black woman who is making ends meet by
renting out half of her "shotgun" house in an area of
New Orleans that survived Katrina. Living with her
is her father Dexter (Robert Kya-Hill) who lost his
house, his place of employment and his indepen-


dence.When Beau Harlan (William Peden), a white
carpenter, and his son Eugene (Tom Patterson),
a high school senior and football player, come to
rent that half of Mattie's house, Dexter interferes.
He would like the space for himself even though
his daughter needs the rent money he cannot pay.
Eugene's school was destroyed and now he will
have to attend an all-black school where he likely
will not even make the football team.That is on top
of losing his mother because his father did not get
the family out of town in time. As Mattie and Beau
become friends, both Dexter and Eugene would do
almost anything to thwart the relationship. So would
Mattie's ex-beau Clarence "Willie"Williams (Freddie


Bennett), an unemployed black male with a diamond
earring who seems to deal in questionably acquired
building supplies and other items.
Directed by FST's assistant artistic director Kate
Alexander, each actor adds depth to this poignant
story. Bob Phillips set unfolds as cleverly as the
storyline to reveal the interior of the rental half of
the house. Melissa Schlactmeyer's costumes and
Robert Perry's lighting complete the package which
brought the entire audience to its feet following the
April 11 performance.
FST is at 1241 N. Palm Ave., Sarasota. Tickets
are $19-$32, Visit www.floridastudiotheater.org or

Couple bets on love and audience wins


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Playing through May 2 at the Historic Asolo
Theater in Sarasota is Pierre Marivaux's
"The Game of Love and Chance."
About to be cast into an arranged marriage by
their wealthy parents, Silvia (Alicia Dawn Bullen)
and Dorante (Adam Carpenter) individually
decide to swap places with their servants Lisette
(Devereau Chumrau) and Harlequin (Danny
Jones). Should their intended mates not mesh
with their desires, both intend to get out of the


arrangement. In classic Commedia dell-arte-style,
class will out but not until after all kinds of silli-
ness occurs between the two couples, with help
from Silvia's father, Monsieur Orgon (Ron Kagan)
and her brother Mario (Dane Clark).
The buffoonery begins with Jones' curtain
speech and continues to the curtain call and ends
with the acrobatic antics of the servants of the
proscenium.That the set appears to be a miniature
replica of the Asolo Theater adds to the fun of this
FSU/Asolo Conservatory production, which features
second-year conservatory students.


Stealing the show is Chumrau, outlandish
in her portrayal of Sylvia's hairdresser-turned-
Sylvia. Her body posture and brilliantly choreo-
graphed antics take it over the top. Jones is ideal
as her kitchen boy turned noble suitor.
Carpenter uses posture and carriage to portray
the elegant nobleman turned servant. Bullen is the
least convincing of these four because of her softer
voice and also because of the strange costume
part modern short dress and part 18th century long
dress. Such inconsistency of dress worked better for
Lisette and Harlequin yet it was not employed on the


other actors. The headpieces worn by Chumrau and
Jones added more silliness.
Luke Bartholomew, Benjamin Baucvalt, Geoff
Knox, Ashley Scallon and Tony Stopperan provided
assorted bits of comic relief as servants of the
proscenium.
Direction was by Andrei Malev-Babel with deck
and props by Bartholomew and Boucvalt and
costumes by Scallon and Knox.
Tickets are $15-$30. The Asolo Theater is at
5401 Bayshore Road, Sarasota. For tickets, call
941-351-8000.


'Beast on the


Moon'


beguiles


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
The horrors of the Turkish persecution of
the Armenians during World War I are part
of the background of the story of Richard


Kalinosky's "Beast on the Moon," playing through
May 2 in theYvonne T Pinkerton Theatre at
Venice Theater.
Surviving that pre-Holocaust holocaust
is Seta (Ally Tufenkjian) whose mother was


crucified for being a Christian. As the play
begins, Jim Lovett, cast as a gentleman, dis-
plays a picture of a family to the audience.
The faces, relatives of young Aram Toma-
sian (Nidal Zarour), have been removed. It
is 1921. Aram is living in Milwaukee, Wis.,
working as a photographer. Although his
career requires him to deal with faces day
in and day out, it is Aram who has removed
the faces. They too were killed by the Turks.
Then their heads were cut off and displayed
n a fence as a message to other Armenians.
Like Seta, Aram is the only survivor. Left
with his father's coat and a stamp collection,
he managed to make his way to America
where he purchased a camera and began
his career.
Seta, 15, is his picture bride,selected from


photos. She arrives clutching her rag doll. He
expects a woman who will have his children to
fill those empty spaces in the picture frame. He
does not expect someone like Seta, nor does he
expect the likes of young Vincent (Steven Junker)
to show up. Prepare to be beguiled by this cast.
Directed by Murray Chase, Tufenkjian and
Zarour ARE Seta and Aram, from their accents to
their body language and facial expressions. Both
gave poignantly believable performances opening
night, April 15.
The set is by Kirk Hughes, with costumes by
Jeannette Rybicki, sound by Gabriela Gorka and
Dorian Boyd and lighting by John Michael Andzu-
lis. Candace Artim is the stage manager.
Tickets are $24. Venice Theatre is at 140 W.
Tampa Ave., on the island in Venice. Visit
www.venicestage.com or call 941-488-1115.

Tasty tidbits about
places to eat around the area.


It's prime food at Prime Time


BY SHARE DERRICKSON
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Prime Time Steak & Spirits in Englewood is
not only known for being one of the places
to go for prime rib, it offers an extensive
menu of across-the-board fare, Executive Chef
Richard Drumgool said.
The eatery, located on Placida Rd., has
been recognized as having the best steaks,
margaritas, prime rib and Happy Hour sev-
eral years by the Englewood Sun Herald's
Reader's Choice Awards as well as given
four stars for food, service and atmo-
sphere by the Sun Herald.
"Prime Time came in here 17 years
ago and it has really never changed," he
said. "It has been pretty much the same
staff since the beginning," he said. The
cohesive staff, along with its food, may
be an attributing factor to the restaurant's
success. "The staff is wonderful. We are all
like family and friends. How could they not
be when we all work together? We don't
have a lot of the corporate problems like a
franchise."
"We do lots of catering off premise


and on premise," he said. "We do anything
from weddings to office parties. We are
not open for lunch so we do private parties
during the day from 20 people to 150."
The ambiance, he said, is southwestern
and sports. "It is a family sports viewing
are so it is not the rowdy crowd," he said.
"We try to be very family oriented here."
"This is a fun place, but we take the
food pretty serious. We are the only
licensed certified Angus Beef restaurant
anywhere around. It is real prime rib it's
not on the bone or rib eye that some try to
pawn off."
"And since we have a southwest theme, we
have some southwest dishes, and a menu that
is good for the whole family. We have some
nights were you can spend $5 on tacos, and
on another night where you can spend $25 on
prime rib."
"Our menu is very affordable and we win
most complete menu almost every year,"
he said of the plaques hanging around the
restaurant.
Of course, people go mainly for the prime


rib. "But we have a lot of New Englanders so
we have a lot of seafood as well. We do clams,
steamers, and fresh mussels from Maine, had-
dock, and lobster."
"We also work with the local fishermen for
fresh grouper," he said.
The chef does have a favorite dish to make.
"Rack of lamb the response of the people is
great and we do it a lot for special occasions."
Drumgool said the restaurant is very health
conscious. "We use no trans fats and all our
fried food is fried in rice oil which is the healthi-
est oil you can get. We use sea salt and all of
our rice dishes, beans, and soup are made
from vegetable stock. And everything here is
made from scratch from our dressings to our
key lime pie."
The restaurant seats guests from 4 p.m. until
10:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from
11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Sunday. It is located
at 5855 Placida Rd. in Englewood and can be
contacted at 941-697-7799 or 941-697-7731.
Drumgool said reservations are not typically

Darrett Adkins replaces

Victoria Bass at

New College concert


PROVIDED BY NEW COLLEGE
New Music New College announced that cel-
list Darrett Adkins will replace Victoria Bass
at the fifth and final program of its 2009-
2010 season on Saturday, April 24 at 8 p.m. in the
Mildred Sainer Pavilion on the campus. Bass was
unable to travel from her native Canada for this
performance.
Adkins will follow the planned schedule of a
free lecture/demonstration on Friday, April 23 at
3:30 p.m. at Sainer and a program of contem-
porary cello music on Saturday evening.The
program will feature a Hypersuite concert that
includes a Bach suite with contemporary interpo-
lations, including Luciano Berio's "Sequenza XIV,"
originally on the program. Adkins gave the first
New York performance of "Sequenza XIV," which
he has recorded for release on Naxos's complete
sequenzas collection, the first such recording.
Adkins belongs to a new generation of Ameri-
can musicians who are redefining the concert


experience. His critically acclaimed performances
of contemporary music have inspired critics to call
him "stunning," "intensely involving," "heroic" and
"fiery." His appetite to bridge the world between
the established tradition and the avant-garde
enables him to explore repertoire in almost every
genre from the classical cannon, to the contem-
porary frontier. From 1997 until 2002, Adkins
was a member of Flux, a string quartet
dedicated to cutting-edge music.
Besides receiving degrees from the
Oberlin Conservatory of Music, where he
studied with Norman Fischer, and the Juil-
liard School, where he was a student of Joel
Krosnick, Adkins also earned a Master of
Music degree from Rice University. He is
originally from Tacoma, Washington and now
lives in Oberlin, Ohio with his wife Ingrid and
their three children.
\Tickets are $12 per person and may be
reserved by calling the New College events office
at 941-487-4888.
