Turtle ordinance



heads down dual path


STRONG FINISH

Second was worth the weights

Deal could better preserve Springs


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Fearing the city could miss
another nesting season, Venice
City Council tentatively agreed
Tuesday to move forward with
implementing its own city tur-
tle lighting ordinance. Even if it
means repealing the ordi-
nance next year after the
county revamps its own.
The logical path, said City
Attorney Bob Anderson, is to
simply repeal the city ordi-
nance that opted out of the
Sarasota County turtle ordi-
nance, and ask the county to
reinstate the city under its
jurisdiction through an inter-
local agreement. It's currently
the way the tree protection or-
dinance is enforced through-
out the city by county staff.
"Why reinvent the wheel,"


he said.
But council members were
concerned the county won't be
able to act swift enough to
apply the ordinance to this
turtle nesting season, which
begins Saturday.
County staff have expressed
a willingness to bring the city
back under its wing, assuming
county commission's approv-
al, but it also wants to update
its own turtle ordinance, some-
thing that could take time.
If the county takes over
education and code enforce-
ment efforts it could cost the
city up to $20,000 for a full-
time position, at least for the
first year, to bring beach resi-
dences into compliance, said
City Engineer Kathleen Weed-

Council cool to freeze


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Venice officials are saying
they may not need to dip into
reserve funds as deeply as an-
ticipated.
City Finance Director Jeff
Snyder told city council during
a recent budget update the city
may require a draw of $2.016
million from reserve funds to
make ends meet for the fiscal
year which ends in June. That's
$556,675 less than anticipated.
A mid-year budget amend-
ment in the amount of $76,459
approved March 23 by council
reduces the potential savings
to less than a half million dol-
lars, however.
Snyder credited belt-tight-
ening in the personnel depart-
ment for much of the saving.
The city negotiated less-
expensive bonuses with its
union employees that don't
increase base salaries or ac-
crue to the next year. Non-
union employees received
similar treatment. And non-
unionized employees making
more than $69,000 volun-
teered to go without any in-
crease at all this year.
The city is also benefiting
from retirements. Left unfilled
are expensive positions like
director of information ser-
vices, director of building and
code enforcement and airport
administrator. The position of
director of public works, creat-
ed last year, was never filled,
and a plan that public works


staff came up with also meant
the parks supervisor position
was left unfilled.
"Personnel services are
approximately $900,000 less
than budgeted," Snyder wrote
in a March 26 financial man-
agement report. And expendi-
tures on consultants are down
$400,000, although this part of
the budget fluctuates greatly.
On the downside, revenues
are lagging behind projections
by $800,000, Snyder said.
No freeze
One idea for reducing ex-
penditures a wage freeze -
got no traction last month.
At the March 23 council
meeting, Council Member
Emilio Carlesimo was a lone
voice backing an across-the-
board hiring and salary freeze.
City Manager Isaac Turner
said he didn't support such a
move.
"I propose we look at it
more analytically, as opposed
to a hatchet job, if you will,"
Turner said.
"There is a matter of fair-
ness to nonbargaining em-
ployees," added Council Mem-
ber Ernie Zavodnyik. 'A year
ago at that time we worked out
the agreement with the un-
ions. We also said we would
also be looking at the nonbar-
gaining. Times are tough and
... next fiscal year we may have
to undergo some real drastic
changes, but that's not where

County launches probe into baseball deal


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER


SUN PHOTO BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
This photo of Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota, taken in March, already
shows the Orioles logo on the ticket booth.


Sarasota County Admin-
istrator Jim Ley has asked the
county Clerk's Office to con-
duct an independent review of
the procurement process that
resulted in the hiring of
International Facilities Group.
The group served as the
county's representative in the
$31.2 million renovation pro-
ject of Ed Smith Stadium for
spring training use by the
Baltimore Orioles.
In an e-mail Thursday after-
noon to members of the Sara-


sota County Commission, Ley
said he had contacted County
Clerk Karen Rushing for her
assistance following published
stories last week alleging "bid-
rigging" in the selection of a
representative for the county
during the stadium renova-
tion.
In a second e-mail later
Thursday afternoon, Ley told
Assistant County Administra-
tor Dave Bullock, the point
man in the baseball negotia-
tions with the Orioles, that
Larry Arnold, the executive
administrator for county ser-
vices, "is to be reassigned so


that he has no more interac-
tion with the spring training
project."
Documents submitted April
13 in a lawsuit filed by attorney
Andrea Mogensen represent-
ing two citizens groups against
Sarasota County state that
Arnold had ties to IFG before
he was named to a county
selection committee that re-
viewed proposals for the own-
er's representative job, and
later ranked IFG ahead of nine
other companies. IFG negoti-
ated a $500,000 contract with

Missing man
The Sarasota County Sher-
iff's Office is asking the public's
help in locating a missing man
who suffers from
autism.
David Allen
Osborne, 45, of
the 12000 block
Ronda Lane,
North Port, was
visiting Beacon
Osborne House, 1600 block
South Tamiami
Trail, Venice, Monday after-
noon when he disappeared.
Osborne is 6 feet tall, 160
pounds with brown hair and
brown eyes. He was last seen
wearing a blue polo shirt,
blue jeans and black shoes.
Because of his autism, he will
not normally initiate conver-
sation with strangers.
Anyone with information
on his whereabouts is asked
to call the Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office, 861-4900.
Loaded guns
A man was arrested after
his neighbor called 9-1-1 to
report that he hadn't seen
him in days.
According to a Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office report,
Rex Kevin Schreder's neighbor
told authorities he hadn't seen
Schreder in days and when he
knocked on the door, Schreder
slammed his .38 cal. pistol
against the glass door and told
him to "get the away from
the door." He also told his
neighbor things weren't going
well and he hadn't been taking
his medication.
The deputy called Schreder,
who agreed to go outside and
talk to him, but would not


leave the enclosed screen area
of his house. The deputy said
Schreder was very angry and
said he wasn't taking his med-
ication and he needed to see
his doctor. The deputy saw the
black handle of a revolver
sticking out of his front waist-
band. Schreder was secured
and the loaded .38 caliber
Taurus revolver was taken for
safekeeping.
A computer check showed
Schreder had a permanent
domestic violence injunction
issued on March 25, 1998,
making it illegal for him to pos-
sess firearms. Schreder said he
also had three rifles in his mas-
ter closet and consented to let
the deputy take them.
Taken were a loaded 12-
gauge Mossberg shotgun, an
unloaded 12-gauge Winchester
shotgun, an unloaded .30-.30
Winchester rifle and ammuni-
tion for all of the weapons.
Schreder told the deputy
the guns were purchased after
the injunction through news-
paper ads and private sellers
so no paperwork would be
filed or background checks
done. He said he had a consti-
tutional right to bear arms and
the injunction would not stop
him.
Schreder, 56, 2400 block
Wisteria Road, Venice, was
arrested and charged with
possession of firearms while
a domestic violence injunc-
tion was in force. His bond is
$2,000.
Punch drunk
An outdoor grilling party
turned ugly when everyone
got drunk, according to a
Sarasota County Sheriff's


Office report.
When the victim went to a
residence to grill some food, he
and Joseph Warren Sandefur
argued and Sandefur punched
him in the face as he was
attempting to leave.
The deputy saw the victim's
nose bleeding. Paramedics
responded and treated him.
When the deputy went to
the residence, he said Sandefur
and several other people
appeared to be drunk.
Sandefur denied punching
the victim in the face and
said the victim tripped and
fell when he was leaving. The
rest of the group denied
observing the incident and
refused to cooperate as wit-
nesses.
Sandefur, 29, 100 block of
Kenwood Ave., Nokomis, was
arrested and charged with bat-
tery. His bond is $10.
Attempted battery
A request to use a phone led
to an attempted sexual battery.
According to a Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office report,
a female went to a friend's to
use his cell phone, which she
had done many times
because she has no phone of
her own.
A man who lives with her
friend answered the door and
when she went inside, he told
her her friend wasn't there but
said she could use his phone
and led her into his bedroom.
She sat on the bed while he
looked for his phone, but then
he suddenly attacked her.
During the attack, she kept
telling him "no" and was final-
ly able to kick him off her and
punch him in the face. She


then fled the house and called
9-1-1.
Orlin Bogran, 25, 1900 block
South Tamiami Trail, Venice,
was arrested and charged with
attempted sexual battery on a
victim over 12. He received no
bond.

Years add up to 50 for Hough & Co.


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

"I have never known what I
could not do," said Grady
Hough II recalling his life, par-
ticularly his business career
spanning 50 years in virtually
the same office building in
Venice.
He was born in Fort Myers
in 1935. His dad was railroad
agent working 24/7 during
World War II. They moved to
Venice in 1949, where he grad-
uated from Venice Nokomis
High School.
"I wanted to go and punch
cows on the frontier in
Australia, but my dad con-
vinced me to be an accoun-
tant," said Hough, who gradu-
ated from the University of
Florida.
He joined the military in
1958 as a commissioned offi-
cer and auditor. Returning to
Venice on April 1, 1960, he
found there were no CPAs, just
a couple of accountants.
Opening Hough &
Company, he sharing the large
entrance hall in the Gulf
Breeze Hotel with his dad, who
had set up a little travel agency
there working at a table with a
door as the top and wood
posts for legs. Five months
later Hurricane Donna dam-
aged the hotel, causing them
to move to an office on
Nokomis Avenue across from
Hough's current building. He


SUN PHOTO BY ROGER BUTTON
Celebrating 40 years of working together are Terry Littrell and Grady
Hough II, who recently marked the 50th anniversary of Hough &
Company. The photograph is of their building, which was partly gutted
by fire after it was struck by lightning in 1974.


hired his first secretary in 1961.
With help from Mr.
Baynard, president of Venice-
Nokomis Bank, he acquired
the land to build the compa-
ny's office at 248 S. Nokomis
Ave.
On the Saturday of Labor
Day weekend 1974, a lightning
bolt hit the office. Hough and
his wife, Kerin, arrived at a
Sarasota restaurant for dinner
only to be told his daughter
had called reporting his office
was on fire.
When the firefighters had
finished, Hough and col-


leagues hauled out the furni-
ture, washed it down and set
up next door in the adjoining
four-bedroom house he had
acquired a few weeks previ-
ously. Downstairs the office
was OK but the fire messed up
the second floor, even wreck-
ing a large safe door.
While the building was
being repaired, at a cost of
$100,000, business continued
from the house next door.
"We were back in April 1st,
and I attribute my success
partly to being a survivor," he


Partners for 40 years
A 40-year partnership be-
gan in 1971 when West Palm
Beach CPA Terry Littrell joined
Hough & Company. They
expanded the business with
Littrell opening their Eng-
lewood office. They also
opened a Port Charlotte office,
but sold it 12 months later,
Hough said, because cultures
were so different and none of
the Venice team wanted to live
there.
"I sold the Englewood busi-
ness to go into private ac-
counting for 10 years, but
missing people contact, I visit-
ed Grady and I rejoined him in
1991," said Littrell.
Retiring three years ago, he
decided to move to North
Carolina to be nearer his fam-
ily. He and his wife, Kathy,
bought a fixer-upper house
that has taken much of their
time, decorating and paint-
ing.
A Rotarian, he and Kathy
gave 16 years to the Interact
Club at Venice High School.
Hough asked him to come
back for tax season; this was
his third year returning.
"Grady has been a good
business partner and very easy
to work with," said Littrell.
No retirement
Hough continues working
full-time despite encountering
serious health issues in recent
years.


"I plan to go down to 50 per-
cent working, but I don't see
myself retiring because I don't
fish, golf or go down to the
beach," he said.
He is writing a book based
upon what would have hap-
pened to him if he had contin-
ued in the service and gone to
Vietnam.
A Lion for several years, he
joined Rotary 1971, where his
major accomplishment was
founding the annual Art Fest-
ival almost 20 years ago. He
has served on the boards of
Venice Hospital, the Venice Art
Center, the Venice Area Cham-
ber of Commerce and the
South County Family YMCA. A
past president of the Venice
Judo Club, he was an instruc-
tor for 12 years.
As a hospital board mem-
ber, he supported Dr. Jonathan
Fong when the open-heart
surgery program was launched
and had direct experience with
it late December, undergoing a
quintuple bypass.
On April 1, returning from
his weekly Rotary Club meet-
ing he was dismayed to find
the company conference room
was in use, but pleasantly sur-
prised when invited in to enjoy
cake and ice cream as the team
honored their founder, presi-
dent and chief financial offi-
cer's 50 years in business in
Venice.

Months of planning, tasting
and tweaking flavors are over
for Bob Johnson, owner of
Bob's Twist 'N' Shake, 420
North U.S. 41 Bypass in front
of TJ Maxx. This family busi-
ness opens at noon Monday,
May 3, and will be open until
9 p.m. seven days a week.
Customers can relax in lush
landscaping, enjoying ice
cream and listening to music
on the patio, or use the drive-
through. A 12-camera security
system keeps employees safe
at work and protects cus-
tomers during their visit to
this rollback rock 'n' roll era


'60s icon.
Store manager is daughter-
in-law Linda Johnson, who
has 17 employees, including
all the family and the Johnson
grandchildren.
"I'll be making ice cream,
you bet," said Bob Johnson,
the back-room boy.
Granddaughter Mallori
Johnson named the first spe-
cial Bob's Belly Buster
Blizzard, a thick shake with
choice of mixings. On opening
day look for her in the ice-
cream suit serving free sam-
ples to those in line.
There are 17 ice cream fla-
vors, including mocha and
bubblegum; sugar- and fat-
free yogurt, tart yogurt, orange
creamsicle, cappuccino
bursts, combo cones, ice-
cream cookies and birthday
cakes, plus sodas, banana
splits, sundaes, shakes, malts,
floats, smoothies and more.
Beach bash
Rescheduled for Sunday,
May 16, from 2 to 7 p.m., is
the Sertoma Club's Nokomis
Beach Bash, at the Nokomis
Beach Pavilion.


Entertainment is being pro-
vided by The Cry'n Shames,
Blue Tide Blues Band and
Adam Clinch. Food, beer and
soda will be on sale; no per-
sonal coolers are allowed.
Admission is free.
The original event in March
was canceled due to rain.
Bank expanding
Chase Bank has acquired
the property on which a Mobil
gas station was torn down
more than a year ago in Venice
Village Shoppes.
'A new Chase bank office is
to be built there, and they
want to start construction
before the summer," said
Harvey Jandreau, general
manager, Suncoast Complete
Services and Venice Village
Shoppes.
Volcanic interruption
The recent activities of the
volcano in Iceland have affect-
ed my eating habits and those
of salmon lovers on the East
Coast. It was in very short
supply this week when I visit-
ed my local Publix store.
Shannon Patten, Publix


sales and marketing director,
said the majority of salmon
sold in Publix stores comes
from Norway, but due to the
erupting Icelandic volcano
there has been a backlog in air
cargo.
Salmon that should have
been on shelves here has had
to be distributed locally in
Europe.
"On the news we have only
heard about the stranded peo-
ple, but the flight interruption
has resulted in Publix receiv-
ing less than 25 percent of its
usual supply," said Patten.
Some supplies are still
coming from Canada and
Chile, and she expects weekly
increases in the quantity of
Norwegian salmon on store
shelves as flights get back to
normal.
Hertz returns
Returning to centralize
operations in Venice is Hertz
Rent-A-Car, 803 South U.S. 41
Bypass in the Gulf Coast Plaza.
Almost a year ago this office
closed to merge with the origi-
nal airport location.
"Our main services are to


businesspeople, providing
vehicles when their cars are in
local body shops and dealer-
ships," said Jake Pursley, store
manager.
The whole staff has moved
to this location, but they pro-
vide a pick-up point at the air-
port by delivering vehicles to
customers flying into Venice.
Call 485-8531.
Office closing
The BB&T Bank branch
office at 247 South Tamiami
Trail on the island will close
on May 28.
All staff will be moving to
BB&T offices in this area and
customer accounts will be
transferred to other offices in
Venice.
This location was acquired
by BB&T following the seizure
of Colonial Bank by the FDIC
last year.

the county for the work.
The amendment says
the plaintiffs are chal-
lenging two separate
procurement awards be-
cause one was made
"without any notice to
the public," and the sec-
ond "was awarded due to
a flagrant manipulation
of the bidding process in
which the bidder actually
drafted a portion of the
bid documents."
Sarasota Citizens for
Responsible Govern-
ment and Citizens for
Sunshine had filed the
original lawsuit in the
12th Judicial Circuit
Court at the end of De-
cember against the Sara-
sota County Commis-
sion and, in particular,
County Commissioners
Joe Barbetta, Nora Patter-
son and Shannon Staub,
alleging state Sunshine
Law violations during the
negotiations that brought
the Orioles to Ed Smith
Stadium for spring train-
ing.

Prudence
On Thursday, Ley told
the county commission-
ers in the e-mail that he
went to Rushing on
Monday because "her
office is legally and orga-


nizationally independent
of county administration
and the county commis-
sion."
"Prudence suggests that
until I complete my review,
it is best to take this action,"
Ley wrote to Bullock
Ley was out of the office
Friday and could not be
reached for comment.
However, Bullock said Fri-
day that Arnold's duties
continue as executive di-
rector of community ser-
vices, which includes over-
sight of parks, libraries, the
history center and the
cooperative extension.
Bullock said he will take
over Arnold's baseball du-
ties until he can find some-
one else to fill the position.
Ley stated in the e-mail
to the commissioners that
he acted in order to "set the
process (of an independent
review) in motion."
Barbetta, the commis-
sion chair, said the com-
mission is relying on Ley to
address the issue because,
according to the charter,
"our only employees are Jim
Ley, the county administra-
tor, and Stephen DeMarsh,
the county attorney"
"They are in charge of
their staff," he said.
Barbetta said Ley is
seeking the independent
review so there "is no ap-
pearance of impropriety"


regarding the baseball pro-
ject. He said he expects an
update from Ley in the
'"ot-too-distant future."
Barbetta said he could
not comment further be-
cause of the pending law-
suit.
A press release from
SCRG trustees Cathy An-
tunes, Pat Rounds and
Jim Lampl said the non-
profit group filed the law-
suit against the county
and the three commis-
sioners "in the firm con-
viction that the process
and procedure leading to
execution of the Major
League Baseball stadium
contract had been com-
promised throughout."
The release says the
SCRG legal team is con-
tinuing "to investigate
irregularities in the pro-
curement process."
Ley, however, closed his
e-mail to the county com-
missioners by saying:
"From where I sit, this one
professional service, while
important, does not repre-
sent the core of the deci-
sion-making process
associated with baseball. It
is nonetheless very unfor-
tunate that it can now be
carved out as representa-
tive of the entire body of
work."

Or the city could as-
sume the cost under its
own ordinance, but that's
not likely in light of recent
budget cuts. If a city ordi-
nance is adopted, at least
one member of code en-
forcement staff would
likely be redeployed to tur-
tle lighting enforcement
duties, Weeden said.
"A lot of what's going
to make it successful is
getting out there talking
with the people before
running into problems,"
Weeden said.
"It's either going to cost
us money, or it will result
in a reduction in services if
we do it ourselves?" asked
Council Member Emilio
Carlesimo.
"Correct," said Weeden.
Carlesimo favored tak-
ing a few extra months to
work out a solution with


the county.
Council Member Sue
Lang agreed a county ordi-
nance was preferable, but
worried aloud it would
likely take the county
"months or years" to adopt
a new ordinance.
"We need to get on with
saving the turtles," said
Council Member Kit McKe-
on, a sentiment shared by
the remaining members.
RickMagee, who helped
author the draft turtle ordi-
nance approved by the
city's Environmental Task
Force, said he'd rather
council adopt the city ordi-
nance because it includes
additional recommenda-
tions by Florida Depart-
ment of Fish and Wildlife
that the county has yet to
consider.
He also said a federal
law in place for 28 years
is undergoing review and

beef up enforcement of fed-

dards, a requirement of its
beach renourishment pro-
gram. One of the standards
allows no more than 10 per-
cent false crawls, Magee
said. The city rate is more

funds in the future.

OPINION

OUR VIEW


Send a message: Texting while driving not OK


At a time when the Florida Leg-
islature is struggling to pass any
form of law discouraging the
practice of driving while texting come
the results of a new poll showing the
explosive popularity of text-message
phenomenon among teenagers.
The poll from the Pew Research
Center should be an alarm for all
Floridians concerned about highway
safety and a signal for legislators to
move quickly and definitively on a
strong bill to ban the practice of dri-
vers typing text messages on a mobile
phone while operating a motor vehi-
cle.
It's time to send a message, if you
will, especially to the newest genera-
tion of drivers: Hit the delete button
on this form of distracted driving
before it gets worse.
The numbers tell the story. Ac-
cording to the Pew poll of respon-
dents age 12-17 conducted last Sep-
tember:


75 percent now own cell phones,
compared to 45 percent in 2004.
54 percent sent text messages
daily, compared to 38 percent in a
survey conducted in early 2008 and
27 percent in late 2006.
72 percent of all teens now use
text-messaging, an increase of 21 per-
cent from 2006.
The "typical" teen sends out 50
text messages each day. The numbers
break down this way: 22 percent send
one-10 daily; 28 percent send 11-50;
16 percent send 51-100; and an
astounding number, 31 percent, send
more than 100 each day. Then there
are the fast-fingered 15 percent who
feel compelled to hit the send button
more than 200 times daily.
Girls average more than boys.
Typically, girls send or receive 80 texts
a day, boys only 30.
Add to that the results of another
Pew study last year that in which one-
third of 16- and 17-year-olds admit-


ted they texted while behind the
wheel. More revealing, perhaps, is
that almost 50 percent of respondents
aged 12-17 said they had been pas-
sengers when the driver was texting.
True numbers may be even higher.
The behavioral curve is clear. Kids
now communicate commonly by text
among themselves. (They save calling
for parents, Pew said). They do it a lot,
and they are doing it more often
(thanks, primarily, to unlimited text-
message plans offered by wireless ser-
vice providers.) They may understand
the special danger of driving while
texting, but maybe not. The Pew poll
also indicated nearly 60 percent sent
texts during classes at schools that
banned texting.
That last number doesn't mean it's
a hopeless cause but that we need to
move as quickly as possibly this
year- to hit the brakes on texting be-
hind the wheel.
A bill sponsored in the Senate by


Sen. Nancy Detert, R-Venice, and in the
House by Rep. Doug Holder, R-Osprey,
is creeping through the Legislature. Of
the many anti-texting bills presented,
this is reportedly the only that has even
a remote chance of passage.
That's sad, because the bill is weak.
It would make texting a secondary
offense, which means police officers
would need another reason to pull
someone over in the first place. This
same method was used to institute
the seat belt law.
We would prefer something strong-
er. We think the state should make it
clear, especially for younger drivers,
that this form of distracted driving is
unacceptable. The problem will only
get worse as the practice becomes
more widespread, which it will.
But with only a couple of weeks to
go in the legislative session, that's
probably just wishful thinking. In the
end, some form of a ban, even a mild
one, is better than nothing.


Immovable objects


LANG CAPASSO
PUBLISHER


We have all had times in our
life when we realize that the
people telling us "no" really
mean it.
This revelation might have
descended on us when we
were a toddler fiddling with
the TV set while our mother
was watching a show. As your
mother patiently said "no" and
you refused to listen, the full
impact of her command did
not sink in till your hand was
slapped.
The second time you real-
ized the importance of listen-
ing to someone might have
come as you were a teen and
had the biggest crush on the
10th-grader sitting next to you.
You did not listen to her "nos"
till her boyfriend in the 11th
grade underscored the fact
with clenched fist and a not-
so-subtle warning.
Maybe the third time in
your life was when you noticed
the blue lights of the police car
right behind you. As you
pulled over you were thinking,
I am going to show this officer
who is boss. You knew you
were doomed when the officer
said "No more speeding" and
all you could muster was a very
heartfelt "Yes, sir."
I hope I haven't offended
anyone with all this talk about
violence in this age of doves,
and everyone being equal, and
all opinions and feelings are
valued. Anyone with a nose
and an opinion is valued be-
cause we all have one of each.
Unfortunately, when an opin-
ion meets an immovable ob-
ject, the bigger of the two usu-
ally wins.
Once when I worked for a
major retailer I had an idea of
how things should be done.
My boss said, "Lang, I respect


your opinion, but we are going
to do it this way and I am your
boss." You would be amazed
how quickly his thought pro-
cess became mine.
Sometimes learning that
other people really mean "no"
is an acquired ability. Some
learn it rather quickly while
others, for whatever the rea-
son, seem to be a little slower
at picking up the pace and get-
ting on board.
Like the "Little Engine that
Could," when we feel we are
right we keep saying to our-
selves "I think I can, I think I
can." Sometimes persistence
and hard work get us over the
top. In many cases they just
make us tired and get us
nowhere.
It is up to each of us to know
when we are up against that
immovable force that will not
let us go through that door;
that we recognize that it is time
to say, I gave it my best shot
and it was just not meant to be.
The city of Venice gave the
Federal Aviation Admin-
istration what it considered to
be a good fight, but after re-
peated rejections by that
agency finally realized that dis-
cretion is the better part of
valor.
Many will wonder why the
city started the fight did not
see the handwriting on the
wall or why it took millions
of dollars in lost revenue to
come to that point. The point
is it did come to that point and
council members are looking
to channel their time, effort
and energy toward things that
need their immediate atten-
tion.
If you are a supporter of the
city and its stand on the airport,
you will applaud the good fight.
If you thought it was a waste of
time and money, you will shake
your head.
And if you stopped caring a
long time ago, you will take
comfort in the realization that
you were right when you gave
the world your analysis that, as
William Shakespeare said, it
was "much ado about noth-
ing."

Caller to tower: Let it be

Hands off. There was an article about the eagle's nest on a
tower at the Venice airport and it stated that city officials
observed an eagle in the nest. Well, I guess they must be new offi-
cials because there has been a pair of American bald eagles in the
nest since November and there's two eaglets in there since mid-
January. The nest has been on that western tower at the airport
for several years. American bald eagles mate for life and return
each year to the nest. It stated the tower and existing cables must
be removed to replace the tower and the cables for guidance to
pilots. I just don't understand why they would go to the expense
of removing the existing tower, which would result in the
destruction of the nest that this pair of eagles return to every
year. I suggest they save the demolition costs and leave the tower
there. Just erect a new tower. Please leave the existing tower and


nest alone.
Never know. I just wonder
about Mayor Martin. Why
don't they just start getting
some of this stuff done, like the
airport, getting some of the
roads fixed? I won't e-mail Ed
Martin. I get a stamp or a post-
card or use a word processor.
With an e-mail account, you
never know who's going to edit
it. I'm not going to vote for him
this time around because I
thought most of this stuff
would have gotten done.
Let Sharky's. Most people
who live near the Venice air-
port moved there knowing it
was a "B" airport for small
planes. Changing it to a "C"
would remove homes and up-
root people. They should keep
it a "B" airport, not turn it into
the "C" that they say that it is,
for big jets. Big jets can fly out
of Sarasota. The other thing is
Sharky's could pay for the
patrolling of the pier. It brings
a lot of people there. There's no
reason its can't chip in and do
that since the city maintains
the property; and it's en-
croaching onto a lot of proper-
ty. Also, how come the bait
shop on the pier never went up
for bid for anyone else to run
it? Sharky's automatically took
it over and is making a lot of
money on T-shirts, etc., out
there. That should have gone
out for a bid. Could you please
answer that for me?
What more? Now that the
school tax is passed, how do
you feel about the $15 million

saying that he didn't take any

Asinine. I'm calling about

100 percent in regard to the
airport. Also, the article you
had on the front page that
council used $1.24 million
from the airport fund to pay
legal expenses to fight this air-
port there's something real-
ly wrong with that, and Marty
Kretchman should have gone
ahead and sued them. Or
somebody should sue them.
That they can take money
from the airport fund to pay
legal expenses to fight having
this airport the way it is to
fight the FAA is completely
asinine. They need to be
impeached or something. This
airport belongs here, and we'll
definitely need it if there's ever
an emergency. This airport was
here long before they were

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS

The law says cars wait

Editor:
This is a response to the complaints from drivers
about waiting for an open drawbridge while one or
more boats pass through.
According to federal law, marine traffic always has
the right of way to pass through drawbridges on nav-
igable waterways. Their operation is regulated by the
U.S. Coast Guard under Federal Regulation Title 33,
Navigation and Navigable Waterways, Chapter 1
Coast Guard Department of Homeland Security,
Part 117 Drawbridge Operation, section 287 Florida
- Gulf Intracoastal Waterway. The regulation requires
that a bridge be opened for all vessels that request
through-passage. The bridge tender cannot force
boaters to "hold way" (wait) before being allowed pas-
sage. Changes to Title 33 require an act of Congress.
Some bridges do have posted closed periods,
which may be set up by a Coast Guard regulation on
request by the Florida Department of Transportation.
In the real world, boaters need this right of way.
Drivers in cars have effortless control over their vehi-
cle and a comfortable environment while waiting at a
bridge. The boater, on the other hand, is working to
maintain position and avoid collisions. On the
Intracoastal he must deal with wind, current, position
of other waiting craft and marine hazards such as
rocks, bulkheads and bridge supports, all within in a
limited space. These conditions are of even greater
concern to a commercial marine operator.
I would also like to point out that boating is the
biggest leisure activity in the country and is enjoyed
by people of all economic circumstances similar to
drivers of automobiles.


Checks were in the
mail to where?

Fairy tales abound in

that do not exist.
The $26.5 million was
credited with creating a

ed), but the worst was
that New Mexico only
has three, not 13, con-
gressional districts.

Real patriots
don't toot horns
Editor:
My father saw action
in World War II in Europe
in the U.S. Army. I had
uncles who served in the
Pacific. I have worked
with vets who saw action
in Korea, Vietnam and
the Gulf.
None of these people
ever referred to them-
selves as "patriots,"
though they earned the
title. Most of them said
they had a job to do and
did it.
Every time I see these
"take our country back"
people, they call them-
selves patriots at every
possible chance. Who are
the trying to convince, us
or themselves? If I dis-
agree with them, does
that make me unpatriot-
ic? Dad always said
watch out for people
who like to toot their own
horns.
Obama has been in
the White House just
more than a year now. I
need to know when we
should stop blaming
Clinton for everything
that has gone wrong in
the 20 years and blame
him. Will Fox news or

Hurricane season is


approaching and I need
to know who to blame for
any category 5 that

Not the center of
their universe
Editor:
That was a wonderful
full-page-plus article
about a local "treasure,"
the Venice Community
Center, and how impor-
tant it has become as a
moneymaker for the
county and a place for
snowbirds to be enter-
tained. It does not, how-
ever, provide any solace
to the many local organi-
zations who used to meet
in the building pre-reno-
vation and pre-price
adjustments.
Those were the were
the "lesser" organizations
of cardplayers, carvers,
square dancers, Shriners,
etc., who were priced out
with the fees "starting at
$750" per function. Charg-
es are made for each chair
and table, use of the
kitchen, etc.
Community organiza-
tions have had to find
other accommodations.
All paid reasonable charg-
es previously.
I believe this was the
original intent for the
building local users.

Kudos for
city council
Editor:
Congratulations to our
city council for its many
positive actions since
2007 on the behalf of
Venice's citizens. I'd espe-
cially like to thank Ms.
Lang for her unflagging
dedication to the city.
Among her other suc-
cesses, Ms. Lang served
us by balancing the bud-
get without raising taxes.
The voters of Venice
are fortunate to have a
devoted, intelligent, and
honest city council, the
members of which self-
lessly focus their time
and energies on preserv-
ing and maintaining the
small-town charm of
Venice in the face of
daunting opposition.

WORDS WORTH
HEARING


Show how we care for our youth


BY KAREN BOGUES
GUEST COLUMNIST

"I really wanted to
move back to Sarasota to
raise my family." How
many times have you
heard that from someone?
We know Sarasota
County enjoys a reputa-
tion as a fantastic retire-
ment community, vaca-
tion destination and cul-
tural mecca. It's time we
added the title of best
community for youth.
Sarasota County is a
great place for a youth to
grow up. Don't believe
me? Let the facts tell the
story:
One of the top school
systems in the state
Many nonprofit or-
ganizations focused on
youth
Miles of public
beaches and 25 parks
Eight libraries
A wide variety of
afterschool, and sports
programs
A commitment to
quality child care
More than the places,
the attitudes of the peo-
ple who live and work
here consistently support
youth issues. The recent
renewal of the 1-cent tax
to support the school dis-
trict is an obvious indica-
tor.
If you were to ask your
friends, neighbors and
colleagues, you will find
several who are actively
supporting one youth
organization or another
with their time or chari-
table donations. Sarasota
County is the birthplace
of several programs that
have earned national
recognition for success,
including Teen Court,
where youth are judged
by a jury of teens and
supported in accepting
responsibility for their
actions; STAR Leadership
Training, which prepares
youth to serve on county
advisory boards and
nonprofit boards of di-
rectors; and Sarasota Mil-
itary Academy, a charter
school that emphasizes
leadership and disci-
pline.
America's Promise is a
national organization
committed to "seeing
that children experience
the fundamental re-
sources they need to suc-


ceed the Five Prom-
ises: caring adults, safe
places, a healthy start, an
effective education and
opportunities to help
others at home, in
school and out in the
community."
Founded by former
Secretary of State Colin
Powell and his wife, Alma,
the America's Promise Al-
liance encompasses more
than 300 partner organi-
zations representing the
business community, non-
profits, communities and
policymakers.
As part of its efforts,
America's Promise selects
the 100 best communities
for young people," a com-
petition that "recognizes
and celebrates extraord-
inary communitywide ef-
forts to improve the well-
being of youth .... Win-
ning efforts are as varied
as local needs, imagina-
tions and willingness to
work together."
A group of community
leaders is preparing an
application for Sarasota
County and needs your
help. Why do you think
Sarasota County is a great
place for youth? Go to
www.SarasotaCounty
Cares4Youth.org and add
your reasons to the list.
Be detailed we want
to know what activity,
program, person or facil-
ity has impressed you or
made an impact on a
child you know. One of
our community strengths
is the level of participation
in civic issues. We want to
make sure that everyone
can share their reasons
why our community is a
special place for youth.
This Web site will re-
main active after the
competition as a base of
information about how
Sarasota County youth
are doing, and ways that
you can get connected to
making a difference.
One facet of the appli-
cation is the opportunity
to share a success story
about a young person in
the community. This may
be one of the most diffi-
cult pieces for our appli-
cation, as the number of
stories seems limitless.
Nevertheless, we encour-
age you to contact us
with the story of a young
person who is succeed-
ing through support from


a program or person in
the community. After all,
you can never hear
enough about the good
news.
Sarasota County is a
special place for many


reasons.
It's time we shared our
story and received some
recognition for the
strength of our support
for youth.
Please help us by add-


ing your feedback to the
Web site.

tive director of Com-
munity Youth Develop-
ment.

Q. My ears itch when
I wear my hearing

aids. Otherwise, the
hearing aids are

perfect. What can I
do?


A. Though most people

fit with hearing aids do
not experience any

reaction, there is a
small possibility that

your ears may be
allergic to the actual

shell material itself. In
this case, the

instrument can be
recased with another

polymer material which
is hypo allergic. There

is a possibility that
your ears are just not
accustomed to the
presence of an object

and it may be helpful to
use a liquid lubricant
on the aids before
inserting them. Another

important consideration
is that you may have an

underlying infection
that needs to be treated

medically. That is why


the first step
contact

is to

the

ST BILLS GRABS SILVER MEDAL


MR. SHEEPSHEAD
COLUMNIST


Whom do


we trust?

Do you eat raw oysters?
Many people do, even
though our government
agencies tell us not to.
Do you eat frozen wild
shrimp that come from poor
Third World countries? Who
knows how polluted their
water is? Do you eat fish that
come from the same areas?
Who do we trust?
We keep hearing stories
our government agencies
only inspect a small percent-
age of the frozen seafood
that comes into the country.
It is scary. Whom do we
trust? I am as guilty as the
next person.
Do you remember the
novelty item called a water
snake? It was a water-filled
rubber object that was nearly
impossible to hold or grab. I
sold thousands and thou-
sands of them in my north-
ern wholesale business. I
couldn't get them fast
enough. The problem was
that some leaked and the
water was smelly and
obnoxious-looking.
One of my friends, who
worked in a laboratory, test-
ed the water. The average
person wouldn't drink this
water and for good reason -
it turned out to be polluted
and dangerous. The item was
imported from Third World
Asian countries. Before we
could do anything, the item
lost its appeal and stopped
selling.
Where were the inspec-
tors? Suppose a young child
would have drunk this poi-
son? Do we have the same
type of problem with our
frozen seafood? I hope not.
Well, fellow Sheepshead-
ites, the time has come to say
goodbye until next week.

All Venice's Parker Bills could do was
watch helplessly as the color of his medal
went from gold to silver.
On the final lift in 129-pound weight
class, Bills' place in the FHSAA Class 2A
state finals drop from first to second.
The silver medal is the highest place by
aVenice High lifter since 1999 when Adam
Mineo captured the Class 5A title in the
119-pound weight class.
In the team standings, Venice was tied
for 13th with four other teams.
Not all is lost for the three-time state
qualifier and two-time state place-winner
as he finished with his highest-ever total
including a personal best in the bench
press and he is only a junior.
Bills lifted a high of 280 pounds in the
bench press and added 220 pounds in the
clean and jerk for a 500-pound total, just
five pounds behind first-place Tho Hoang
of New Smyrna Beach.
"Somewhat (disappointing,)" said Bills
about second place. "There is always next
year and he (Hoang) obviously deserved
it."
"He had a great performance today,"
said Venice coach Tim Weidlein. "You got
to be proud of his effort out there, with
having a hurt hamstring, and coming in
here and getting 280 on the bench and
200 on clean and jerk. First time he's
done it all year. This kid had a bright
future. He's a junior right now. Hopefully
he is going to use this as motivation for
next year and improves one more spot
for next year."
His only real competition was the final
lifter in the weight class, Hoang, who need-
ed to make up 10 pounds after the bench
press portion.
Bills' 280 pounds in the bench was also
the best in the weight class and just 15
pounds off the state record of 295 pounds
set in 1999.
In the clean and jerk, Hoang was suc-
cessful on his first two lifts of 215 and 230
pounds. The 230 pounds tied Bills at the
time with a 500 total but still had one lift
remaining. A miss would have given Bills
the state title because of a lower body
weight of .3 pounds.
On the final lift, Hoang struggled to get
the bar up but successfully jerked his over
his head for the state title.
As a freshman, Bills placed 10th with a
365-pound total at 119 pounds. Last year,
he was sixth place at 129 pounds with a
450-pound total.
In the bench press, Bills started out with
260 pounds then tied his season-high with
270 pounds on his next lift. Even though
his father and assistant coach, Lou, didn't
want him to increase his final lift to 280
pounds.
After successfully lifting 280 pounds, the
usually stoic Bills showed some emotion
by stopping his foot and pumping his fist.
"It was just one of those things you feel
you can do," said Bills about his 280-pound
bench press. "So much adrenaline. I

Venice High's Parker Bills lifts a personal-best 280 pounds in the bench press during the FHSAA
Class 2A state finals on Saturday morning at River Ridge High in New Port Richey. Bills lifted 220
pounds in the clean and jerk for a 500-pound total to place second in the 129-pound weight
class.

thought, 'I can do this, I can do this' and I
just got it. It felt easy actually. This place
makes you a different person."
The 500-pound total is what Bills was
shooting for as was a first-place medal.
Bills, who has not performed a full clean
and jerk for the last two months because of
a hamstring injury, missed on his final
attempt at 225 pounds.
"Basically when I pulled it off the
ground, it was just a little far in front of me
so when I tried to squat it, it was too far out
there," said Bills. "I had to drop it."
Bills said he didn't feel the hamstring
while competing.
"Don't know if it was the adrenaline or if
it is better now," said Bills about the ham-
string. "I will find out when I start working
out."
"If you would have told me Parker
would have done 500 today, a week ago, I


would have said he probably would have
finished first, without a doubt," said
Weidlein.
Junior Quinten Raines was making his
first appearance at the state level in the
169-pound weight class.
Raines missed all three lifts at 280
pounds in the bench press.
"For Quinten with it was his first big
major competition," said Weidlein. "Hard
to say what was going on in his mind, but
no matter what you have to proud of the
kid. First year ever doing competitive
weightlifting and he qualified for state
tournament meet. That in itself is an
accomplishment and no one should ever
hang their head about that. He should be
truly proud and the Venice community
should be proud of a kid like that."

SOFTBALL CLASS 5A-REGION 3 QUARTERFINAL


Sickles ends Venice's season


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

It took a perfect game
to end Venice's run in the
playoffs.
Tampa Sickles senior
Chelsea Oglevie tossed a
perfect game as the Lady
Gryphons edged Venice,
1-0, in eight innings in
the Class 5A-Region 3
quarterfinals on Tuesday
night atVenice High.
The loss closed out the
season for the two-time
defending Class 5A state
runner-up Lady Indians
(15-8).
"They are district
champs," said interim
Venice coach Pete Dom-
broski. "You have to


look at the positives.
They fought hard. They
got a lot of great memo-
ries. Something for the
next team to build on
and something for the
seniors to look back on.
There are other teams
that are home watching.
They went to the dance,
but unfortunately the
song ended before we
could finish the dance."
It was the first time
Venice has lost in the first
round of the postseason
since 2004.
Oglevie, a right-han-
der, wasn't overpowering
as she only finished with
two strikeouts but used
her location and spin to
keep Venice's hitters off


balance.
"I'm not a velocity
pitcher so I am not going
to blow them out of the
water so I work on my
spins as well as I possibly
can," said Oglevie. "I'm
so excited. My drop ball
out, my screwball and
my change-up worked a
couple times real good."
"We just hit under the
ball and not on top of it,"
said Dombroski. "We just
didn't get good wood on
the ball. They just didn't
hit."
At the conclusion, the
right-hander didn't even
know she had a perfect
game until her coach
informed her.
"When I came over


here he (coach Phil
Giarrizo) grabbed me
and told me 'you had a
perfect game and I start-
ed crying," said Oglevie.
"I don't care about that
kind of stuff. I threw one
but I was like 10-years-
old at the time. This is the
second one in my whole
life."
"We were going in
and out, up and down,"
said Giarrizo. "We were

BASEBALL CLASS 5A-DISTRICT 10 SEMIFINAL


Venice back in final after win over Pirates


BY ROB SHORE
SPORTS WRITER

By his own admission, Venice starter
Aaron Rhodes' first few innings against
Port Charlotte weren't the greatest.
A highlight-reel catch by left fielder
James Browning and a dose of timely
hitting later, Rhodes was back to his
usual efficient self, shutting down the
Pirates 10-3 in the Class 5A-District 10
semifinal on Tuesday night at Venice
High.
The victory advances Venice (16-10)
into the district championship at 7
p.m., Thursday, where the Indians will
face Manatee. All fans are encouraged
to wear white for a White Out.
The loss ended a 12-game winning
streak for Port Charlotte (15-12) that
dated back to the Sarasota Classic.
Rhodes went six innings, allowing
two runs on four hits. But he struggled
early on.
"I wouldn't say I was at my best in
the early innings," Rhodes said.
Port Charlotte touched him for two
runs in the third and threatened for
more when Shaun Lovett hit a bases-
loaded screamer to left with two outs.
Tracking back toward to warning track,
Browning lost it for a moment against a
blinding sunset. Later, Venice coach
Craig Faulkner said he thought it would
fall for sure.
But Browning found it in time and
made a leaping catch to save three
Pirate runs. He admitted feeling just a
prickle of panic in the split-second he

lost the ball.
"You do (feel it)," Browning said.
"You miss on that, it's a bases-clearing
triple right there."
Meanwhile, the Indians' hitters got
hot and stayed that way. Browning
sparked a tying rally in the bottom of
the third with a double to deep center,
and Venice capped it with Mike Geers'
high chopper into left field scoring two
runs.
From there, Rhodes didn't give up
much to the Pirates, not allowing a hit
until coming out of the game after the
sixth inning.
"He's a sinkerball pitcher," Faulkner
said. "Up to (the third inning), he was
just up there throwing. I thought he set-

tied down."
"(Browning's) catch and his hit and
we scored, that pumped me up I
knew I'd get run support," Rhodes said.
"It was the most important part of the
game, it got me going."
Venice took the lead in the fourth in
a rally that saw the Indians rap four
straight first-pitch hits off Port
Charlotte starter Daniel Schiller,
including consecutive RBI singles by
Browning, Joe Iorio and Brent Krauss.
Kevin Guthrie put the game well
past reach with a three-run homer over
the left field wall off Port Charlotte
reliever Raul Quinones in the sixth
inning.

moving the ball all around. We kept
them off balance. They only hit two
balls (three actually) to the outfield.
We did have them off balance and
that was the key and the plan."
After seven scoreless innings,
Courtney Goff reached on an error by
the second baseman. Danielle Rowe
singled into left field to move Goff to
second base. A sacrifice bunt by
Oglevie moved the runners to second
and third base. Mya Anderson followed
with a grounder to Ott at shortstop,
who threw home trying to get the
speedy Goff but was too late.
"We came up short end of the stick,"
said Dombroski. "You have to give it to
that young lady, she pitched a good


game. They executed and we executed.
That is why it went eight innings. Our
girls did a great job too. They just
pushed one (run) across before we did."
Venice junior Mel Dembinski
pitched out of trouble in four of the first
six innings as the Lady Gryphons (23-5)
left six runners in scoring position.
Sickles loaded the bases with one
out in the second inning with a single,
double and fielder's choice.
Dembinski, who finished with five
strikeouts, got out of the jam with a
strikeout and lineout to shortstop.
"Those girls learned something they
won't learn in any classroom," said
Dombroski. "They got a lot of charac-
ter. They can look at themselves in the


mirror and be proud of themselves for
what they accomplished. They never
quit."
In four of the first six innings, the
Lady Gryphons had their leadoff batter
reach base. In the third inning after a
single, Venice catcher Chelsea Zgrabik
threw out the Sickles runner trying to
steal second base. Two batters later,
Oglevie doubled but a shoestring catch
by shortstop Kelly Ott on a bloop over
the pitcher ended the inning.
In the fifth inning, a single, sacrifice
bunt and groundout put a runner on
third base for Sickles but a flyout to
center field preserved the shutout.
Another close call in the sixth
inning as Oglevie led off with a dou-


ble. A groundout moved courtesy run-
ner Brittany Johnson to third base.
Dembinski then struck out the next
two batters to end the inning.

Springs has been the

we are right now."
"I feel strongly we
need to hire a profession-
al airport manager," said
Council Member John
Moore. "I don't want any-
thing to interrupt that."
"My understanding is
we have a de facto freeze
when a position comes
open," Bennett said.
"That's OK in the short
term. I don't generally
approve of very cold
freezes. They don't often
work and very often are
run around by very cre-
ative administrators."
Mayor Ed Martin said
he headed federal pro-
grams and faced pro-
posed freezes under both
Republican and Demo-
crat administrations.
"We came to under-
stand that a blanket
freeze was not a good
tactic," he said. "It took
the authority out of the
hands of the people most
knowledgeable about
which positions were
most critical."
Carlesimo pointed out
the city has been a day
late and a dollar short
when it comes to making
tough decisions.
"Sometimes we have
to take these drastic
steps," said Carlesimo. "I
would rather freeze pay
and keep someone work-
ing, than not freeze it and
have to lay somebody off."
Management study
Instead, council appear-
ed satisfied with City Man-
ager Isaac Turner's current
direction of reducing ex-
penditures mostly through
attrition, use of consultants,
contractors, and out-
sourcing where appro-


private on the expend-
itures end, and revisiting
service rates on the rev-
enue side. Finance con-
sultants from KPMG pre-
sented results of an eval-
uation of the city's man-
agement at Tuesday's city
council meeting that
back Turner's plan.
"We believe the city
has a lean management
at this time ... consider-
ing the economy," said
KPMG's Daniel Dornan.
Recognizing the city is
in a difficult position fi-
nancially, Dornan said he
found city managers to
be "positively aggressive"
in seeking out ways to cut
costs.
"There is strength to
build on in terms of cross
training and multi-task-
ing positions."
Doran cautioned the
city about the use of staff
promotions based on the
number of years of ser-
vice at the city.
"You may not be pick-
ing the best person for
the job if you are picking


based on tenure (alone).
We have seen some ex-
amples of that," Dornan
said.
KPMG suggested it
might be more appropri-
ate to require profession-
al credentials for certain
positions within the
planning and zoning and
the building and code
departments.
Likewise, Dornan also
suggested savings could
be made with more inter-
juridsdictional sharing of
positions, for example in
the areas of technology
and police dispatch.
"To do that you lose
flexibility. What you gain
is cost effectiveness. ...
And there are political
consideration. It's a trade
off, said KPMG's David
Dennis.
"There are some
things you will be forced
to do you wouldn't do five
years ago or five years
from now."

VENICE REGIONAL

NAMED ONE OF THE NATION'S

100 TOP HOSPITALS

Residents of southwest Florida have found a new source
of community pride. Their hometown hospital Venice
Regional Medical Center has been named one of the
nation's 100 Top Hospitals, a prestigious designation
that acknowledges those hospitals that meet and exceed a
demanding set of performance benchmarks.

The award was presented by Thomson Reuters, a global
healthcare information company that uses public data
to perform the study annually at its own expense. The
award recognizes hospitals around the country that have
achieved excellence in clinical outcomes, patient safety
and satisfaction, financial performance, and operational
efficiency. This is the first year that VRMC has been
recognized with this honor.

"When I joined Venice Regional Medical Center in
January, it was very clear to me that there was something
special about this hospital;' said Peter Wozniak, Chief
Executive Officer. "The entire staff is engaged and
committed to doing the very best for not only the patient
but for their co-workers as well:'

"This award is particularly meaningful because it validates
the extraordinary effort our staff makes each and every day,
but also because it says something to the community about
the level of care they can expect to find here;' continued
Wozniak."People can feel comfortable knowing that they
can experience world-class medical care right here in their
own backyard:'

VRMC is a 312-bed, state-of-the-art hospital with a
wide range of inpatient and outpatient services. Specialized
services include a comprehensive cardiac program that has
been nationally recognized for four consecutive years as a
100 Top Cardiovascular program by Thomson Reuters.

The 100 Top Hospitals award process includes an in-
depth analysis to evaluate 3,000 hospitals in nine areas:
mortality, medical complications, patient safety, average
length of stay, expenses, profitability, cash-to-debt ratio,
patient satisfaction, and adherence to clinical standards of
care. The results of the analysis are important because they
are unbiased, provide a valuable resource for consumers,
and offer hospital leaders an objective comparison of their
facility's performance with similar hospitals.

Winning hospitals were announced in the March
30 edition of Modern Healthcare magazine. For more
information about the 100 Top Hospitals award, visit

BRIEFS


WHAT YOU SHOULD
KNOW ABOUT STROKE

May is National Stroke Awareness
Month, an excellent opportunity to
remind ourselves about the serious health
risks posed by this all-too-common
disease.
A stroke occurs when the flow of blood
to the brain is interrupted, usually by a
blood clot blocking an artery or a bursting
blood vessel. When this happens, brain
cells begin to die. As the cells die, abilities
controlled by that area of the brain are
lost, such as speech, movement and
memory. How a stroke patient is affected
depends on what part of the brain is
damaged. Some people recover fully from
a minor stroke, while others may lose
function on a permanent basis. More than
two thirds of stroke victims sustain some
type of ongoing disability.
Unfortunately, stroke strikes people of
all ages and ethnicities. Some risk factors
are beyond our control, such as age, race,
gender and family history. Other risk
factors can be influenced by our behavior,
including smoking, alcohol abuse, high
cholesterol and blood pressure, and
obesity. Talk with your doctor for specific
suggestions on lifestyle changes you can
make to help reduce your risk of stroke.
Venice Regional Medical Center is a
Joint Commission Primary Stroke Center.
"Every minute counts when someone
is having a stroke. Residents of south
Sarasota County need to know that Venice
Regional Medical Center can provide
excellent care for the stroke patient
should the need arise," according to Robin
McGuinness, chief nursing officer at the
Hospital.

stroke awareness and recovery, visit

In Paris, Roberto Messina fell 26 meters from a building, land-
ing in an empty pool. On purpose.
"There were no airbags in those days," he said.
"They emptied the pool and filled it with cardboard
cartons and mattresses. You look down and it looks like
a handkerchief."
It was all in a day's work for South Venice resident -.. -
Messina, who was a movie stuntman for nearly 50
years.
As if dropping into that pool was not enough, he
crashed through a window first.
"It was real glass, not sugar," he added.
He was shot in the face in Italy and was in a car crash
in Lahore, Pakistan.
Now retired, he is a little older and a bit grayer but still
has the body that made him the perfect stunt double for
such film stars as David Carradine, Anthony Quinn and
Robin Williams. A member of the Stuntman Hall of Fame.
Messina also worked with John Wayne, Joe Don

on lookout for
cotton seed bug

BY AUDREY
BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER
Ever since a U.S. De-
partment of Agriculture
inspector found a cotton
seed bug in a residential
area of Monroe County
in late April, the Florida
Department of Agri-
culture and Consumer
Services has been look-
ing for signs of the dam-
aging insect.
"The cotton seed bug
is a serious pest of cot-
ton, and we are hopeful
it is contained on an is-
land in the Keys far away
from the cotton produc-
tion area," Florida Agri-
culture Commissioners
Charles H. Bronson said
April 23.
"Our inspection
teams are currently in
the field conducting a
survey that will tell us if
this pest has spread."
This is the first time
the pest has been found

We need


loving


homes


They call me Eddy, and
I'm so lovable and sweet.
I love to play. I'm an
American bulldog mix,
about 5 months old with
one blue eye and one
brown eye. I came to the
shelter as a stray. I was
born deaf, so while I may
not hear you with my
ears, I pick up on cues
very easily. Because I'm
just a puppy, I'm very
alert and can easily be
taught hand signals. The
shelter is no place for
me, I need a family to
bond with. I'd be a great
best pal.









Jolene, Jolene ... wasn't
there a song written
about me? If not, there
should be. I'm a beautiful
yellow lab mix, around 3
years old and weigh
about 45 pounds. I'm
great with people and
love to snuggle. I like
being a part of a family,
and I'm here at Suncoast
waiting for you.
For information about
adoptions, call 474-7884,
or visit Suncoast

FROM SENIOR
FRIENDSHIP
CENTERS INC.


Senior Friendship Cen-
ters Inc. recently received
three separate grants to
support its Friendship at
Home program.
The grants include
$7,500 from the Jerome
and Mildred Paddock
Foundation and $2,500
from The Plantation Com-
munity Foundation. A
$3,000 award from the
Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice is to
be used to underwrite
supportive aging services,
including crisis interven-
tion and health services.
Funds will underwrite
health visits, Friendship at
Home supports, dental


materials and other items
needed to keep older
adults in their homes.
In its 10th year, the
Friendship at Home pro-
gram has provided coor-
dination, advocacy and
connection to an esti-
mated 800 vulnerable
older adults each year.
The program's primary
focus is to assist older
adults through three main
components: supportive
intervention, friendly visi-
tors and telephone reas-
surance. The mission is to
provide coordination, ad-
vocacy and connection
with multiple community
resources. The program
allows older adults to live
with dignity, indepen-
dence and safety in their
own home.

WORKER'S COMP AND HEALTH INSURANCE


DR. DAN BUSCH, DR. ERENE ROMANSKI
CHIROPRACTOR
If you've ever wondered whether worker's
compensation programs and health care plans
make payments for chiropractic services, the
answer is an emphatic YES. The
administrators of these programs are among
the most enthusiastic boosters of chiropractic
for very good reasons.
Back injuries are a major cause of work
time-loss and disability. Because chiropractic
has had such resounding success with this


type of problem, their services are most
appreciated. It follows that if the employee
can be kept healthy, he can be kept productive
and workmen's compensation and insurance
costs substantially reduced.
Furthermore, the type of treatment
provided by chiropractors does not include
the use of drugs and does not require
hospitalization. Not only are these expenses
directly eliminated, but time off of
recuperation may be considerably reduced as
well.

STEPS from Page 7B


Testing and treatment for
STDs is available at each of
the three Sarasota County
Health Department clinic
locations in Sarasota
(Ringling Boulevard site),
Venice and North Port.
Chlamydia is the most
commonly reported STD in
Sarasota County and is more
likely to infect young people
ages 15-24. Syphilis is also
on the rise locally. According
to the Centers for Disease


WELL-BEING from Page 7B


Control and Prevention,
those who have had a sexu-
ally transmitted infection are
two to five times more likely
to contract HIV, the virus
that can cause AIDS.
Sexually transmitted
infections can occur in any-
one, regardless of income or
socioeconomic status, health
department officials say. If
STDs are untreated, they can
contribute to long-term
health problems. These
infections may go undiag-
nosed and untreated


because some people may
not have obvious signs or
symptoms. However,
untreated STDs can cause
irreversible neurological
damage and damage to the
reproductive organs, which
can result in infertility.
Physical exams and certain
lab tests can reveal STD and
HIV infections. Early detec-
tion and treatment of STDs
reduces the risk of pelvic
inflammatory disease, which
may affect fertility in women.
In addition, some strains of


HPV are closely linked to cer-
vical cancer and can be pre-
vented through vaccination.
Public health officials
encourage everyone to take
these steps to prevent STDs:
Talk with your partner
and health care provider
about ways to reduce risk of
infection, and about recom-
mended vaccinations and
testing.
Get tested. Visit
findSTDtest.org to find a test
site near you.
Treatment Seek out


medical care to treat the dis-
ease and to prevent future
infections.
To schedule a community
presentation, or for more
information about STDs,
please call 861-2919 or visit a
new site that has been
launched by the Florida
Department of Health,
www.faceitflorida.com. The
CDC also has a Web site,
www.cdc.gov/STD/sam/defa

casts and social media
resources.

Students receive Office of Naval Research science awards


BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER


Two budding Venice-area scientists
received awards for their recent entries
into the Sarasota County School Dis-
trict's 2010 Regional Science and En-
gineering Fair.
Both are middle-school students.
The awards were announced April
15 during a recognition event at the
school district auditorium, which was
hosted by the Education Foundation of
Sarasota County Inc.
Jordan Kindt, a student at Laurel
Nokomis School, won an award for his
chemistry entry titled What is the Effect
of Rapid Cooling on Recrystallization?
He won first place in the category at the
district's 2010 Regional Science and
Engineering Fair in February.
Olivia Grangeon, a Epiphany Cathe-


dral School student, was awarded for
her entry in the Medicine and Health
category titled Which Snack Gives Me
the Most Energy During Swim Meets?
She also had taken a first place award in
the category in the school district's sci-
ence fair.
Along with the 138 other students in
the district 34 more from the Venice
area who won first, second or third
places in the competition, Jordan and
Olivia received a certificate and a Bright
Future card game from Applied
Materials Inc. The California-based
company created the game to intro-
duce environmental sustainability con-
cepts to children, the inscription on the
back of the card game reads.
According to Laura Breeze, advance-
ment director with the foundation, the
company wants to encourage students
to become good stewards of the Earth's


resources. The card game title is not
connected to the state's Bright Futures


Scholarship Program.

BUG from Page2B


in the Florida environ-
ment, even though it has
been intercepted on
shipments into Florida
in the past, according to
a press release.
Hibiscus and okra are
in the cotton family and
can also be attacked by
the cotton seed bug,
according to FDACS.
The quarter-inch
insect is native to Africa
and feeds on cottonseed,


which makes the seeds
less likely to sprout and
reduces oil quality.
"Severe infestations
can decrease germina-
tion (spouting of seed)
by as much as 75 per-
cent," the release said.
Representatives of the
Cooperative Agricultural
Pest Survey program in
Monroe County are con-
ducting surveys in
Monroe County to study


the situation.
People who find a
cotton seed bug can call
(888) 397-1517. For more
information, visit www.

"For he's a jolly good fel-
low, that nobody can deny,"
sang a chorus of friends to
Woody McDonell at a recep-
tion in his honor. The artistic
director for Exsultate! retired
after eight years with the
group. Tom Davis and Alice
Hayes thanked him for his
service and presented him
with gifts and good wishes.


The reception followed a
concert at Christ United
Methodist Church that
included the Le Voci di
Venezia chorus from Venice
High School and one of the
most popular sopranos in
Venice, Deborah Berioli.
We wish Woody and his
bride-to-be, Alice Campbell,
well.
Best of spring
Roy W. Engler, artistic
director of the Suncoast
Chorale, rehearsed the group
until showtime making sure
tones and pronunciations
were perfect. His determina-
tion rewarded the audience
in the final concert of the sea-
son, Best of Spring, which
warmed their hearts.
Included in the program
was Ryan Gage, music direc-
tor at the Church of the
Nazarene. He has a gift for


stirring the spirit.
The Chorale offers an
early-bird special for three
concerts scheduled for its
2010-11 season $35 for
adults before June 30. Mail
checks to P.O. Box 653,
Englewood FL 34223.
Concerts are scheduled
for Nov. 28 and Dec. 3,
March 4 and 6, and April 29
and May 1.

Not only is the Venice
Theatre the happiest place
in town and one of the top
community theatres in the
United States, its staff and
volunteers are the most
generous.
Their Relay For Life team
led by Geri Becker and Jim
Lovett deserves a standing
ovation. For 18 hours the
group sold cupcakes, paint-
ed faces, took pictures,


walked laps and celebrated
life. Bravo.
One of our best
The special person of this
week is Geri Becker, the co-
captain of the Venice Theatre
Relay for Life Team.
Throughout the year this
terrific senior celebrity rallied
the troops, held garage and
bake sales, encouraged a
writing campaign and led the
team to victory, reaching its
$10,000 goal. She passed out
flyers and spread the word at
the theater, getting everyone
possible to donate to the
cause. She never tired or gave
up on the goal. Her focus was
constant.
Geri Becker is one of the
fantastic Venice Theatre vol-
unteers who make Venice a
great place to live.

Features Editor


Think out of the box

If you live in Venice and never drive south for entertain-
ment, you are cheating yourself. The same is true if you
never drive north to Sarasota or Bradenton.
We live in the heart of Florida's Cultural Coast. Take
advantage of that fact. Your life will be enriched and you
also will help enrich the economy. What goes around comes
around. When you buy a theater ticket or pay admission to
a museum or other attraction the people who work at those
places receive money they can use at your restaurant or
carpet store or garden shop.
But more important than Economics 101 is the way such
adventures add zest to your own life.
Viewing paintings at the John and Mable Museum of Art or
cars at its neighboring Sarasota Car Museum can enlighten
and inspire even as it offers a painless way to learn about the
past.
Time spent at G.Wiz in Sarasota or the Imaginarium in
Fort Myers is just plain fun. Experience a hurricane. Learn
about magnetic attraction. Pet a stingray at the Imaginarium
or see sharks and sea turtles and more at Mote Aquarium
and Marine Laboratory in Sarasota.
Many theaters have discounts. Ringling has a free day.
Venice Depot has free tours. Use Let's Go for inspiration.
Check the SRQ/TKTS article.
Then hit the road.

Wishing you well
I don't know him personally, but have known him for decades.
Bret Micheals, singer of '80s rock and Poison and current
contestant on "Celebrity Apprentice," has been listed in critical
condition in intensive care since Thursday after being rushed to
the hospital with a severe headache. According to reports, doctors
found bleeding at the base of his brain stem and have been unable
to stop it as of this writing.
I've been following updates on his Facebook page and on the
'Today" show hoping he will pull through.
Then I questioned, why do I care so much? A friend told me that
he is a piece of the past childhood memories. Children of the '80s
grew up with him.
When my oldest daughter was 2, she wanted to listen to 'Poden.'
She and her aunt continue to catch Bret on every solo tour.
The tour has been postponed and fans everywhere are posting
well-wishes to his Web site and Facebook page.
"Give you strength," Bret. We're pulling for you.

An 'Enchanted April"

set for

Lemon Bay Playhouse


PROVIDED BY LEMON BAY PLAYHOUSE

or an "enchanted" evening be sure
to see "Enchanted April" opening at
the Lemon Bay Playhouse.
Running from April 28 through May 16,
"Enchanted April" by Matthew Bar-
ber tells the story of four dissimilar
women in post-war England who
leave their damp and rainy environs
to go on a holiday to a small se-
cluded coastal castle in Italy. Two
women, who belong to the same
ladies' club but have never spoken,
become acquainted after reading
an ad for villas for rent in the local
paper. They find two other ladies to
help share expenses.
What happens when those four
women, strangers to one another,
decide to escape the weary gloom
of London for the wisteria blooms of
Tuscany for the month of April? Will
they discover more than a change in
climate? And how will their discov-
ery affect those around them? Mau-


reen Young, Michelle Neitzel, Lee
Lawler, and Ann Hanushek portray
the four ladies as four very differ-
ent characters. Paul Mullen and
Stephen Horowitz are husbands of
two of the women, and Robin Mazey
is the owner of the castle. The cast
features a newcomer to the LBP
stage, Kathy Amelia, in the role of
the Italian maid. They are all under
the direction of Dale Moore.
There are two unique happenings
during the run of the play. First, the
artwork of 96-year-old Helen Salins will
be on display in the lobby. She is the most
chronologically gifted artist that has ever
displayed work at Lemon Bay Playhouse.
Second, patrons will have an opportunity
to take a chance on winning one of the
props of the play: a very large urn that will
be decorating the set until the play closes.
LaStanza Ristorante is sponsoring the
play and offering to play-goers a 10-per-
cent discount on their total bill if they
choose to have dinner before the play.
Reservations are required, specifying

Auditions for


'Painting Churches'


PROVIDED BY LEMON BAY
PLAYHOUSE
Lemon Bay Playhouse is conducting audi-
tions at 7 p.m. May 2 and May 3, for the
summer production, "Painting Churches" by
Tina Howe.
The play will run from June 23 thru July 11.
Scripts are available for reading at the playhouse
at 96 West Dearborn Street between the hours of
10 a.m. and 2 p.m.


Mary Lou Ardrey returns to Lemon Bay
Playhouse as the director, with her last effort
being the extremely successful production of
The Foreigner. This time, she's looking for one
older male, one older female, and one younger
female to complete the cast. She is also looking
for volunteers to help with costumes, props, and
backstage work. If you're interested, attend one
or both of the auditions to meet Mary Lou and
express your interest to her.


In "Painting Churches,"Tina Howe, the play-
wright, explores the relationship between an adult
child and her aging parents, a situation familiar
to many Englewood residents. In a townhouse in
the Beacon Hill area of Boston, the elderly couple,
Fanny and Gardner Church, are packing, preparing
to move to a beach home on Cape Cod. Gardner
is a poet and Fanny is from a "fine old family"'Their
daughter Margaret, an artist who lives in NewYork,
has arrived to help them pack. An infrequent visitor


home, she wants to paint a definitive portrait of her
parents while she has the chance. That gives her an
opportunity to get a good look at them, to use the
artists objectivity with her subjects to see them as
people and not just her parents.
Lemon Bay Playhouse is located at 96 West
Dearborn Street in Englewood.The box office is
open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. weekdays, phone
941-475-6756. Information and tickets are avail-
able at www.lemonbayplayhouse.com.


Planting a better tomorrow for the Homeless Coalition


CHARLOTTE COUNTY HOMELESS
COALITION, INC.
Arbor Day is just around the corner. It's a
day of planting and rejoicing in nature,
a time for re-beautifying the Earth. The
Charlotte County Homeless Coalition,
CCHC, is doing their part for the environ-
ment by revitalizing their headquarters and
creating a better tomorrow through new
eco-friendly plants and trees during an Arbor
Day Celebration.
The CCHC is teaming up with the Home
Depot to rejuvenate their grounds and create
a beautiful new landscape for all who visit
the busy center. The new designs will feature
a better irrigation system, new benches,


sustainable fruit trees and ground cover.
The fruits from the trees will be harvested
for use in the kitchen and food pantry to
serve the community. Through the project,
they are hoping to create a better place for
the community to live and seek assistance.
Despite continued efforts from volunteers
and community members, the grounds of the
Charlotte County Homeless Coalition, which
includes the administration building and the
shelter, are in need of some revitalization.
Through this project it is the goal of the
CCHC to provide a greener, more ecologi-
cally friendly environment for the clients that
are served at the Coalition and the commu-
nity at large.


"With better ground cover and natural
Florida fauna, we will be able to create a
sustainable, maintenance friendly setting
for people to enjoy when they come to visit,"
said Angela Hogan, Executive Director of the
Charlotte County Homeless Coalition.
The event will take place from 10 a.m.
until 2 p.m., Arbor Day, Friday at the Char-
lotte County Homeless Coalition, located at
1476 Kenesaw St., Port Charlotte. Volunteers
from across the county will be on hand to
help improve the landscaping and make the
Coalition a more beautiful place. The day will
be a fun filled event, with lunch, music, and
giveaways for volunteers.
The Charlotte County Homeless Coalition


is a 501(c)(3) organization, dedicated to the
fight to end homelessness and hunger in
Charlotte County, and to assist individuals
and families in imminent danger of becoming
homeless by providing them shelter.
The CCHC is one of only two non-profit
agencies in the state of Florida that is both
a Lead Agency for the Continuum of Care of
Homeless Services and also provides direct
feeding, homeless prevention, and shelter
services.
If you are interested in volunteering or for
more information please call the Charlotte
County Homeless Coalition at 941-627-4313
or send them an e-mail at

Vintage films add sparkle to The Andrews Brothers


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
With her flair for comedy and big boom-
ing Ethel Merman-like voice, Kyle Ennis
Turoff can easily fill the Golden Apple
Dinner Theatre stage.
In "The Andrews Brothers" she plays the role
of Peggy Jones, a World War II era singer looking
forward to performing on the same stage with the
famous Andrews Sisters. When illness prevents
the sisters' appearance in the scheduled USO
show, Peggy concocts a plan so that she can still
go on stage. She convinces three stagehands
who have worked with the famous trio so often
that they know the show as well as the famed
sisters, to carry on for them. Coincidentally, their
last names happen to be Andrews and their first
names are Max (Jeff Deards), Patrick (Greg
Kenna) and Lawrence (Mitch Lewis).Think Max-
ine, Patty and Laverne and then think of them as
all being more than 6 feet tall and in heels. What
they may lack in experience they make up for in


enthusiasm. Imagine trying to sing like the An-
drews Sisters or anyone else from that era, when
even your parents may not remember them.
Directed by Larry Raben, the show also fea-
tures fabulous old newsreels of the real Andrews
sisters performing USO shows with the likes of
Bob Hope, Eddie Cantor, Lana Turner, Betty Hut-
ton, Judy Garland and others of that era. At the
April 16 performance, the audience appreciated
the old newsreels as much or more as the live
performers.
The films were assembled by choreographer
David Engle and even included a vintage Walt
Disney cartoon commissioned by the U.S. Gov-
ernment for recruitment purposes.
For veterans, this is a don't miss show. For
everyone else, it is a fun history lesson. "The
Andrews Brothers" continues through May 30.
Tickets are $41-$43 per person, including buffet
dinner. For times and reservations, visit www.
thegoldenapple.com or call 941-366-5454 or toll-
free, 800-652-0920.

Fifth time was a charm in Colorado Springs


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Like that perpetual bridesmaid, I have often
visited Colorado Springs, Colo. without see-
ing one of its most famous sites.
Each time I was there for something to do
with ice skating, either as a skater or a judge
and, even though the 18,000-acre U.S. Air Force
Academy was only about a half hour to the north,
there never was enough time for a visit.
Finally, there with friends to watch the World
Synchronized Skating Competition in April, we
made it.

Mountains that provide such scenic backdrops
to resorts such as the Broadmoor and the Chey-
enne Mountain Resort (the officials hotel for the
competition.)
Four of us shared the cost of a rental
car, which Hertz delivered to the hotel.
After breakfast, we piled into the car and
headed off in the wrong direction, pass-
ing Fort Carson many miles to the south
before we realized there was something
wrong with the directions a local skat-
ing committee member had given us. It
was morning and the sun was on our left,
not the right. We obviously were headed
south and should have been going north.
That cost us about 45 minutes. Heading
north at last, we passed through Colorado
Springs, switching over to U.S. 25. From
Exit 150, it was still a long ride to the
visitor center but there was plenty to see,
including cadets flying overhead in ultra-
light planes out of the academy's airport,
those mountains and finally, after a stop at
a checkpoint where I, as the driver, had to
offer up my license for inspection, the last
few curves to the academy visitor center.
There we watched a film about cadet life,
checked out the gift shop and, armed with student
catalogs, admissions brochures and other informa-
tion, we headed outside for the .33-mile walk to
the cadet chapel.While it is a short walk and not
too hilly, the area is considered high desert. No
one should walk to the chapel without a
bottle of water or other fluid. It also is possible
to drive to the chapel but there is something

A female loggerhead turtle swims in a tank at Gumbo Limbo Nature Preserve at Boca Raton.


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Gumbo Limbo Nature Center is even
more interesting than its strange
name, which is derived from the tour-
ist tree, the Gumbo Limbo.
Located at Boca Raton on Florida's east
coast, Gumbo Limbo has a wonderful butterfly
garden, an observation tower plus a boardwalk in
its coastal hammock area, saltwater tanks filled with
marine life and seven giant sea turtle sculptures in
its sea turtle garden.
It also is monitoring what may well be the first
sea turtle nest made in Florida this year. A female
leatherback made the nest March 31, fully a month
ahead of the normal beginning of Florida's May 1 -
Oct. 31 sea turtle season. According to information
on the center's Web site, the nest was moved to
higher ground so it would not be washed away by
high tides. That is done on this coast too when the
females make their nests too close to the water.
Leatherback hatchlings generally emerge about
two and one half months after nesting. As with log-
gerheads, if the sand is warmer, the hatchlings will
arrive earlier and also will more likely be female.
Leatherbacks, which can reach 2,000 pounds
and 6 to 8 feet across, are much larger than the
200-pound loggerheads commonly found along
Gulf Coast beaches. For sea turtle fans, the chance
to learn about the giant leatherbacks is reason
enough for a road trip to Gumbo Limbo.
Also interesting is the center's hatchling protec-
tion program. Stray hatchlings that do no make it
into the Atlantic are brought to the center where
they are raised until about a year old and consid-
ered better able to fend for themselves. On my
most recent trip to Gumbo Limbo I saw two tanks
filled with tiny turtles and many other creatures in
the centers many tanks, some indoors and some
outside. There also is a gopher tortoise exhibit and


Gumbo Limbo Nature Center is a coastal oasis
on Florida's busy East Coast at Boca Raton.

a Chiki hut.
You should call before visiting Gumbo Limbo to
see what special programs, such as turtle walks or
hatchling releases, might be offered.These usually
sell out so it pays to reserve in advance.
Gumbo Limbo is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Monday through Saturday and from noon to 4 p.m.
on Sunday A donation of $5 per person is sug-
gested for admission.
Gumbo Limbo Nature Center is on AIA,

at 1801 N. Ocean Blvd., Boca Raton.

Hackin"

By JOHN HACKWORTH
MANAGING EDITOR
I heard this week about a band called Tropi-
cal Ave Band, a local five-piece group that
has an unusual hobby of photographing their
audience.
Jeff Hughes is the leader of the
band, which plays approximately 125
dates per year in Sarasota and Char-
lotte counties. Hughes, who does a
solo act, routinely takes pictures of
audience members and puts them up
mostly on the band's My Space, Face-
book or its own Web site.
Hughes says the band is careful not
to put up unflattering pics etc. In the
past two years the band has put up
more than 4,000 photos of faces in the
audience. "We have found it to make
more of a fun atmosphere and a nice
giveaway for vacationers who can
return to their homes and download
their pics for free," Hughes told me in
an e-mail.
The band plays a wide variety of
R&B, Island, Latin, Rock, Top 40 and a
few standards. Female vocalist Najla
Bray heads up the group along with
guitarist/trumpeter Hughes.
The band's my space is: www.
myspace.com/tropicalave with live
videos and complete calendar.
The band has played every Friday
for the past year at Portofino in Port
Charlotte
You can also catch their act regu-
larly at Coral Rock, Port Charlotte;
Sharky's in Venice; Slip Not, in Punta
Gorda, and the White Elephant Pub,
in Englewood.

Let's Go!


TKTS, will be discounted as much as 50-percent.
The project first launched April 10, and the morning's sales were an incredible success. Working
with the Arts Council that weekend to help sell tickets was Brenda Terris, an arts leader in our local
community.
"We sold over 30 tickets for performances at The Van Wezel our first week, with no advertising or
marketing," said Terris. 'This is a way for arts organizations that have excess inventory to sell tickets
that might otherwise go unused."
'The feedback we received from people was really exciting," said Jim Shirley, executive director
of the Sarasota County Arts Council. "SRQ/TKTS will allow people the opportunity to see a quality
production at a discounted price.The goal is that these tickets will help our arts community expand
its reach and build new audiences."
Ticket sales are cash only. Participating organizations include, but are not limited to, the Van Wezel
Performing Arts Hall, Manatee Players, Golden Apple Dinner Theatre, The Players Theatre, Asolo
Repertory Theatre, G.WIZ The Science Museum and Venice Symphony.

Music trumps story in


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Johnny Cash fans filled Fort Myers' Broad-
way Palm Dinner Theatre April 16 for
"Ring of Fire," a musical review about the
life of country music legend.
The cast included singers Adam Clough,
Kelly Cusimano, Diana Fox, Jason Labrador,
Mike Long, John McCarty, Todd Meredith,
Margie Mills, Scott Moreau and Marija Reiff
and featured musicians Chris Rose, Loren
Strickland and Tom Weaver. Most of the singers
seemed comfortable with guitars but Weaver
was nothing short of terrific with the strings,
and he can sing and mug just as well.
Created by Richard Maltby Jr. and conceived
by William Meade, the story line covers Cash's
life from birth to death, especially his youth
and loss of his brother and his later misuse of
amphetamines and other drugs. Despite his
troubled life, he turned out hit after hit, which


is the strength of this show. Think "If I Were a
Carpenter," "Ring of Fire," "Jackson," "Going to
Memphis," Delia's Gone," "A Boy Named Sue,"
"Ragged Old Flag" and "I've Been Everywhere."
Troubled, prolific, sympathetic and talented
come to mind.
Although an ensemble cast, Reiff has the
audience in the palm of her hand when she
sings "Flushed From the Bathroom of Your
Heart" adding a yodel here and there. Moreau,
who plays ukelele for Reiff's solo, is the man
with the voice and carriage most like the late
singer. Margie Mills has too little stage time
given her fine voice.
"Ring of Fire" plays through June 5. The
theater is at 1380 Colonial Blvd., Fort Myers.
Tickets are $47-$53 per person for adults and
$21 for children for dinner and show. Show
only seats are $27. Visit www.broadwaypalm.
com, call 239-278-4422 or visit the box office
at the theater.


Banyan announces ninth season


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
When the Banyan Theater announced its
first three-play season back in 2001,
the summer theatrical season was
almost non-existent in the Venice-Sarasota area.
Thanks to its founder, Jerry Finn, that is no
longer the case. He showed that residents and
visitors of the Cultural Coast like their culture
year-round. Today nearly all local theater compa-
nies offer summer productions, with the exception


of the FSU/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training,
which performs most of its shows in the Cook
during the winter season, leaving the Cook avail-
able for the Banyan Company each summer.
Continuing its three-play format, the Banyan
will open with Henrik Ibsen's "Ghosts" June 24 -
July 11 and continue with Michael Healey's "The
Drawer Boy" July 15 Aug. 1. It concludes with
"Side Man," by Warren Leight, Aug. 5 22.
"Ghosts" is directed by Gil Lazier, dean
emeritus of the FSU School of Theatre (1982 to


1999.) The story concerns a woman determined
to protect the image of her less-than-reputable
late husband. Lisa Morgan will play the lead role
of Helene Alving.
"The Drawer Boy," directed by Carole
Kleinberg,is timely if only because of the many
World War II veterans living in the area. Healey
depicts two veterans living together as farmers,
assisted by a city boy named Miles. That one of
the vets suffered a brain injury adds poignancy
to the tale.


"Side Man" concerns a talented jazz trumpeter
from a family broken up by the father's devotion to
music. The play won a Tony for Best Play in 1999.
It will be directed by Jim Wise
All plays will be performed in the Cook The-
atre, 5555 North Tamiami Trail, Sarasota, in the
FSU Center for the Performing Arts. Single tickets
are $28.50. Two-show packages are $52 and a
three-show subscription is $70.
For tickets or information visit www.banyanthe-
atercompany.com or call 941-552-1031.

BARTENDER OF THE WEEK


Deidra Schaver

Q's Sports Bar & Girl


SUN PHOTOS BY SHARE DERRICKSON


Her T-shirt, she said, shows the kind of humor owner Ken Coulter has. "People come in just
because of the sign and then they go, 'So you're 'the girl.:"


BY SHARE DERRICKSON
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Deidra Schaver of Port Charlotte is aptly
suited for her job as a bartender at Q's
Sports Bar & Girl. At an establishment
that caters to billiards and poker enthusiasts,
she calls herself "somewhat of a pool shark. I
love the game."
Originally from Troy, N.Y, Schaver moved
to Port Charlotte 30 years ago. "First, I
started waiting tables 20 years ago and then
finally moved up to the bar. I had never waited
tables, but they stuck me in there and went on
from there.
"I got this job because the owners used to
be my customers at the Looney Bin where I
worked for eight years," she said. "The new
owner came to me and said he was looking
for someone to manage three years ago."
"I have tried other jobs, but I didn't enjoy
them as much as I did bartending," she said.
"You can get burned out quick, and you have
to take time off."
Her main personality asset, she said, are
her people skills. "I am always friendly with
everybody I am really good at remember-
ing what people drink. I might not know their
name, but I remember what they drink," she
laughed. "The customers are great here.
You know, you can be having a bad day and
you walk in here and they make you forget
everything."
Another positive of her job, she said, is who
she works for. "Ken Coulter is the owner and


"The Girl" Deidra Schaver, bartender at Q's
Sports Bar & Girl, has the added benefit that
she can practice playing pool, one of her
hobbies.
Janet Bennett is the manager and they are
great people with wonderful senses of humor.
The name of the bar alone shows what a
great sense of humor Ken has. The bartend-
ers are all women so we all are 'the girl.'"
Long-time patron Doug Montgomery praised
Schaver. "You will never find anyone as on the
ball. She always knows what's going on, and if
you need anything, she is right there"
Q's Sports Bar & Girl is located at 4030
Tamiami Trail, Port Charlotte (just past Bob
Evans). For more information, call
941-764-6969.

Avizzano's Sassy Snap


per does it Vegas style


BY CHUCK BALLARO
SUN CORRESPONDENT
His spiked blond hair, long nose and shock-
ing red suit was unmistakable. His rendi-
tion of "Some Guys Have All the Luck"was
perfect. It had to be...
Bob Stewart?
OK, so it was really Rod Stewart's cousin.
But everyone seemed to have a good time
dancing to his more famous cousin's biggest
hits and taking pictures with Bob.
And the food was great, too.
It was just another Tuesday night at Aviz-


OQYSER


zano's Sassy Snapper on 70 N. Indiana Ave.,
in Englewood, when it holds a Vegas-style
show with performers (or impersonators) doing
the hits everyone from Elvis to Tom Jones to
Connie Francis.
Pat Avizzano, the Sassy Snapper's owner,
has seen business boom since opening his
restaurant in August by combining food with
entertainment.
"We tried to do something different that
nobody else has done," Avizzano said. "We
wanted to serve a different audience."
The Sassy Snapper has live bands nearly


UfRR


every night, which keeps the dance floor
busy. Avizzano can even be seen dancing
with his wife.
Who says you can't have fun owning a
restaurant. They occasionally have comics,
but Avizzano said they aren't quite as big a
draw as singers.
And did we mention the food?
The Sassy Snapper has a great selection
of standard Italian dishes along with some
specialties, three of which were featured at
the show. Their pasta dishes start at $7.99.
Grouper piccata ($19.99) is a grouper filet
served with a white wine, lemon butter and
Caper sauce, served with mashed pota-
toes and steamed mixed vegetables.
Pork Schnitzel ($15.99) is a lightly
breaded, tenderized piece of pork covered
in brown gravy with mushrooms with the
potatoes and veggies, while the linguine
alfredo with chicken is a creamy home-


made alfredo sauce over linguine topped
with grilled chicken.
The Sassy Snapper also features veal
picatta, chicken marsala, zupa de pesce
and pailla, along with your standard appe-
tizers, soups and salads and dessert and
drink specials.
As for Vegas Night, $24.95 will get you
a salad, bread, entree and two hours of
great entertainment.
"Lots of people come to the Vegas
show," Avizzano said. "We give diners
a choice of three entrees, which makes
things easier."
The restaurant offers karaoke on
Monday with Ann & Sonny and it also
features Sunday brunch and is available
for banquets, meetings and weddings.
For more information and to make reser-
vations for Tuesday Vegas night (the shows
typically sell out) call 941-460-1900.

Don't let Snootie the Manatee take up all
your time when you visit Bradenton's
South Florida Museum and Bishop Plan-

"Alien" are both R-rated. The first, running 88


IT'


minutes, was filmed in 1971. "Alien" was made in
1979 and runs 120 minutes.
Guests are invited to come early for beer, wine,
soft drinks and snacks in the planetarium lounge.
