State: Airports vital to economy


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
The economic benefits from
general aviation airports are
considerable, according to a
recent state study.
The Florida Department of
Transportation, in its "Florida
Statewide Aviation Economic
Impact Study" released in
March, estimates the econom-
ic benefit of Venice Municipal
Airport at $22.7 million annu-
ally, with indirect impacts at
$23.8 million.
A multiplier assuming
every dollar changes hands a
number of times within the
community, estimates the
total economic activity at $83
million annually, pointing out
the value of Venice Municipal


Airport to the local economy.
"The numbers are off the
hook," said Nick Carlucci,
of the Venice Aviation Soci-
ety Inc., a pilots association.
"When I first read this, I was
a nonbeliever. How could this
be? The numbers are just too
huge."
Another airport group,
Venice Airport Business As-
sociation, did its own analysis
and estimated more than a $20
million impact using 2007 data
without the multiplier. An-
nual payroll alone, according
to the VABA analysis, was $3.6
million.
The FDOT study is based on
2008 data.
"Our commercial business
tenant members have taken


extraordinary action in an
effort to demonstrate to our
community that our commer-
cial airport activities represent
a significant economic engine
and have significant posi-
tive direct impact on Venice,"
Chuck Schmieler, VABA presi-
dent, said at the time.
"I think this report further
substantiates the positive
impact of our airport and the
need to keep its current clas-
sification," wrote John Ryan,
president and CEO of the
Venice Area Chamber of Com-
merce, in a recent e-mail to
Mayor Ed Martin.
City council has been
working for years trying to

Area residents line up for Venice Airport Appreciation Day to peek into an

this year.

Jim Konke, back row, Janna, Natalie and Lilly and, front row, Luke, Kayla, Shawn and Mariah, pose for a family portrait
in front of their home, which they are in the process of enlarging. Volunteers are offering to help build an addition for
the extra children but money is short. The Konkes asked that the baby and another child on the front row not be named
pending their efforts to adopt them.


Sharing happiness, heartbreak


By NEIL HUGHES
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Raising your own child is diffi-
cult enough.
Raising someone else's chil-
dren, with the goal that they will
eventually go back to their birth
parents, takes someone special.
And in return for their good
deeds, they don't receive much
financial support.
The state provides foster
parents with a child up to age 5
with $434 per month. For chil-
dren ages 6 to 12, the support is
$456 a month. And for teen-
agers, from 13 to 18, families
receive $546 each month.
"It's definitely not adequate,"
said Aimee McLaughlin, direc-
tor of development and com-
munications for the Children's
Network of Southwest Florida.
"For the amount of money they
get and the things that they deal
with... truly, our foster parents
are amazing."
For foster parents like Janna
Konke and her husband, Jim,
who have five foster and two
adopted children, the lack of
money is no deterrent. Funds
may be tight, but they didn't get
into foster care to get rich.
The Konkes, who live in
Venice, have had to sacrifice
their master bedroom to turn it
into a girls-only room where the


children can stay. Luckily, their
adopted 17-year-old daughter
Natalie helps out with the cause,
and takes care of her younger
siblings: ages 6, 5, 3, two 2-year-
olds, and one just 7 months.
Even their 10-year-old son
Luke gets in on the action,
helping to look after the young
ones. Janna Konke joked that
the experience is going to make
Luke the best husband and dad
when he grows up.
The Konkes had to go to
the state to obtain waivers to
have so many foster kids. The
state limits a household to five
children, including its own,
when taking on a foster child.
At seven kids, Janna Konke cer-
tainly has her hands full.
Having so many foster chil-
dren even has a financial disin-
centive: The Konkes don't even
receive a tax credit because of
how many they have.
Janna and Jim are looking to
put an addition on their house,
and they've found some build-
ers who are willing to chip in
and discount the work. But at
the moment it's a tall order.
"We are not rich people," she
said. "We are definitely not."
The Konkes have renewed
their foster parent license just
in case, but with seven children,
they don't see themselves taking
on any more. More realistically,


they'll just try to help out other
foster parents who might need a
weekend away. By keeping their
license, they'll be able to watch
others' children temporarily.
While money is on the minds
of the Konkes as it is for most
people the financial issues are
nothing they don't believe they
can handle.
"You can still have a really
lovely family and not be wealthy,
so to speak," she said. "You can
just be the average Joe. You don't
have to be perfect."

Becoming a
foster parent
Those interested in taking
care of a foster child must first
complete a training program
known as the MAPP class. The
Model Approach to Partners
and Parenting class meets for 10
weeks for three hours at a time.
"The class is going to take them
through the ideas of separation
and loss, the kinds of things that
foster kids have experienced,"
said Tom Marer, client rela-
tions coordinator with the Safe
Children Coalition in Sarasota
County. "We try and take them
through some experiences in
their childhood and show how
foster child experiences may or
may not be the same kinds of

Bracing for worst

from oil spill


By JOSH SALMAN and
CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITERS
Emergency person-
nel from Charlotte
and Sarasota said both
counties will be pre-
pared in the unlikely
event that oil from a
massive spill in the Gulf
of Mexico washes onto
the shores of the area's
beaches and estuaries.
One day after Florida
Gov. Charlie Crist ex-
tended an emergency
declaration to include
Sarasota County, offi-
cials throughout South-
west Florida reviewed
their plans to combat
any potential threats.
While the 30-mile
traveling oil spill ap-
pears poised to bypass
Southwest Florida, the
region is still bracing for
the worst.
"We have plans to
deal with it," said Wayne
Sallade, director of
Charlotte County Emer-
gency Management. "It's
a major issue in Loui-
siana and Mississippi
right now, but it will


be far down the road
before we have to worry
about our beaches."
Thousands of gallons
of crude oil continues
to spill out of a British
Petroleum rig each day
after the underwater
operation failed three
weeks ago.
Sallade said the spill is
expected to find its way
to the Gulf's loop cur-
rent, which could carry
the oil to beaches in
the Miami area before
pushing it up the state's
East Coast leaving
Southwest Florida out
of the area of potential
danger.
An unexpected storm
could change the cur-
rent's course and drive
the spill west, but
Sallade said that looks
highly unlikely.
If any slick does reach
the region's shorelines,
it will probably come
in the form of small
tar balls and tar pads,
which are relatively easy
to clean up. These tar

Three years in the
making, the latest Nolen-
esque mixed-use project
idea has gained city
approval. Like other ap-
proved projects, however,
it's unclear if the project
will ever be built due to
the lagging economy.
The Venice Planning
Commission last week
signed off on site plans
for two small retail
buildings with second-
story apartments on
Indian Avenue fronting
U.S. 41 Business, giv-
ing the green light for
construction. The site
plan approval is good for
two years. The planning
commission is the final
authority on site and
development plans.


The project, called Pi-
lazzio de Venice, involves
converting one mostly
vacant existing retail
building and construct-
ing a matching new
building next door in the
Northern Italian architec-
tural style. The complex
was approved for eight
apartments over nine
retail units.
"This is such a key
corner that you couldn't
make a mistake," said
architect Ed Hibner to
commissioners. "We tried
to provide a storm-toler-
ant, aesthetically pleas-
ing green package for a
corner that is definitely
highlighted in the com-
munity."
Hibner said the "For

County launches online survey


FROM SARASOTA COUNTY
How important is it to have
housing near parks or librar-
ies? If sidewalks were available
and safe, would you use them
for errands? What do you
think Sarasota County should
look like in 10 years?
These questions are con-
tained in a short online survey
Sarasota County planners
hope residents will take time
to answer. The survey is avail-
able at http://www.scgov.net/
PlanningandDevelopment/
CompPlan/EAR.asp. It will
help determine residents'
perspectives on major com-
munity issues as part of a
state-mandated update of its
comprehensive plan.
These community is-
sues will form the basis of
an evaluation and appraisal
report that's due to the Florida
Department of Community
Affairs by July 2011.

that county commissioners
will consider and approve
in July to send to the Florida

The community issues ap-

for the evaluation and appraisal
report that will be reviewed in
public hearings by the planning

CITY NOTES
COMPILED BY NEWS EDITOR GREG GILES
Drywall permit fee waivers consid-
ered
The city of Venice is considering how
to lift the financial weight off the shoul-
ders of property owners with defective
Chinese drywall.
City Manager Isaac Turner asked
city council to allow him to come back
with a fleshed-out plan. Turner said
the city is not allowed to waive build-
ing permits that are required, but he
wondered if it can waive the fees. He
suggested using general fund dollars
to offset the cost, but City Attorney
Bob Anderson said that might not be
allowed because it public funds can't be
spent on a private project.
Turner said he plans to expedite the
permitting process to help provide
relief for resident to "get their structure
back to a higher taxable value."
"It looks like it might be a way to
achieve something," said Mayor Ed
Martin.
He acknowledged it "seems problem-
atic," however, and cautioned it could
set an unintended precedent in that
it might later attract property owners
seeking relief if a hurricane were to hit.

ARB to revisit 50-50 rule
The Architectural Review Board will
revisit the city's so-called "50-50 rule,"
according to Council Member Jim Ben-
nett. Bennett serves as council liaison


Bronxville, N.Y. She moved to Venice
from Tulsa, Okla., in 1984. Prior to
that, she was a long-term resident of
West Patterson, N.J.
She is survived by her grand-
daughter, Nina Morrissette, and
great-granddaughter, Alyssa Morris-
sette, both of Bloomington, Minn.
She was a talented seamstress and
homemaker. She was a loving and
devoted wife, mother and grand-
mother who will be greatly missed
by her family and friends.
Services: A memorial service will
be held at Farley Funeral Home,
Venice Chapel, at 11 a.m. on Sat-
urday, May 8. Inurnment will be at
Venice Memorial Gardens. To send


to the board.
The rule addresses nonconforming
uses in the Venetian overlay district
that requires Northern Italian-style
structures. Renovations that equal 50
percent or more of the cost to rebuild
an older structure are required to meet
the newer architectural design stan-
dards; those already considered non-
conforming structures expending less
than 50 percent of the cost aren't.
An example of a project that the ARB
doesn't have jurisdiction over, Bennett
said, is the new Pineapples restaurant
under construction at Venice Avenue
and U.S. 41 Business, the site of the old
Landmark Restaurant.
If the board moves forward with
recommending new design standards
it would presumably make it easier
for the board to require the Northern
Italian architectural style for major re-
construction projects in the downtown
area.

City to seek VABI road access
Venice city leaders decided last week
to press the Hamilton Commercial
Condominium Association for road
access to the city-owned Venice Area

association warned the city about
Venetian Waterway Trail users and
VABI clients who trespass through the
parking lot on a daily basis. Fearing an
accident, HCCA asked the city to sign

offset the cost of putting up a waist-
high fence to protect trail users.
The city agreed to purchase the
VABI property when the north Hatch-
ett Creek Bridge was extended, with
sidewalk access to the property, but
apparently not road access.
But city staff are questioning who
owns the access road (a former alley
now called Jake Street) into HCCA
property. If the city owns it, the alley
could be used to leverage road ac-
cess into the VABI property at little
cost.
"If it turned out to be our road," said
Mayor Ed Martin, "maybe we can bar-
ter with them. I think we should take
an affirmative position on this. I think
we should say to them, here's what we
want, and work it out."
""We don't know for sure" who owns
the alley, said City Attorney Bob Ander-
son. "They say it's theirs. If you look on
the deeds, we have it as on city proper-
ty. But they have an access to the north
of it but the condominium is using it.
Bottom line is we need to secure some
type of access rights."
City staff plan to hire a surveyor to
determine exactly where the property
lines are.

Domestic assault
A woman feared her boyfriend's threat
and called 9-1-1, according to aVenice
Police Department report.
A man and a woman who live together
were having an argument prior to the
VPD officer's arrival. The woman told the
officer her boyfriend had been drinking
vodka heavily and began swearing at
her because she didn't get him another
drink before she went to bed. She said

Elder battery
An anonymous caller reported mis-
treatment of an elderly woman to the
Venice Police Department.
According to a report, the caller said a
tall white man pulled an elderly woman
inside the house by her hair. When of-
ficers arrived, they could hear a man
yelling inside the residence. VPD has
a history of similar complaints at the
residence, so because of that, the con-

Officers said the residence was clean and ii

False imprisonment
Trying to collect money led to a kidnapping:
According to a Venice Police Depart-
ment report, Lt. Todd Resch saw a white
man running toward a pickup in a
driveway in the 700 block of Laurel Ave.,
Venice. The man got into the passenger
seat and the truck fled the residence.
Resch followed the truck while run-
ning a check on it. The truck's registra-
tion had expired on April 12, so Resch
stopped the truck in the parking lot of
the Clark Citgo. VPD Officer Jake Barlow
arrived as Resch's backup. He interviewed the
ger, who was the victim. Barlow noticed the v
hands were shaking and he kept shifting his
around.
The victim said he had gone to the Laurel a
to collect money for yard work he had done t
before for Joshua Graf. He said they gave himu
time and threatened him with bats, and one
had a gun. Barlow saw that the victim was afi

A pregnant woman was battered by
her boyfriend, according to a Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office report.
The female victim and her boyfriend
are dating but do not live together. She
is pregnant with his child. The woman jf
went to the man's house and banged CHARLES
on his door. Once he opened the door
they started arguing. Both of them claimed the other
struck first. Later, the man called the SCSO.
When the deputy arrived, he separated the two
and each had a different version of the events of the
evening. The deputy saw marks on the woman, but
none on the man. The woman said the man hit her
in the head and knocked her down. However, she
refused to cooperate and refused to sign the domestic
violence paperwork or to allow pictures to be taken of
her injuries.
Jerry Lamar Charles, 40, 800 block Forest St.,
Nokomis, was arrested and charged with aggravated
domestic battery on a pregnant woman.

Neal acquires $68 million Venice portfolio


"My judgement is
Venice is stronger than
any other local market as
it did not have runaway
growth," said Pat Neal,
president and founder of
Neal Communities and
one of Sarasota's leading
builders.
He is actively seeking
to acquire more of the
former J&J Homes vast
property portfolio in
Venice.
"Around $68 million
book value in property
is now held by banks
following foreclosure,
and I am negotiating to
acquire specific parcels,"
he said.
Neal said the esti-
mated value has fallen
to around $16 million
following the big residen-
tial property bust of the


past three years. He has
made offers on a number
of J&J Homes residential
properties with various
banks including BB&T,
Synovus, M&I Bank of
Orlando and a hedge
fund in Wilkes-Barre, Pa.
In a recent $3.58
million purchase he
acquired 80 lots in Saw-
grass on Auburn Road
and seven lots in Lakes of
Jacaranda with exclusive
builder rights in both
Venice communities.
Synovus Bank of Tampa
Bay had foreclosed on
those J&J Homes lots.
An office and model
homes are scheduled to
open in Sawgrass in June
with models completed
in October. Call 328-1041

Island Cheers
Making changes to
bring in new products
are the plans of Diane
Rhamstine, who recently
opened Island Cheers,
335-AW Venice Ave.,
across from the Venice
Post Office. "I am adding


pottery, gifts, glassware
and custom jewelry,"
said Rhamstine, who
already sells some men's,
women's and children's
clothing,resort wear and
T-shirts.
In Traverse City, Mich.,
she graduated with de-
grees in business admin-
istration and aviation. It
was the beginning of a
20-year career as a flight
instructor in Boston,
North Carolina and
Canada, and continuing
in Florida.
Operating her own
charter company she
took people on scenic
and private flights.
Her 15 years of snow-
birding to Venice en-
couraged her to move
here two years ago. After
working in a retail store,
she decided to open
her own business. Store
hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
Monday through Satur-
day. Call 375-8069.

Closed
Owner Kasia Marsza-


lek abruptly closed The
Dream Cafe, 117W
Venice Ave., last week.

following the closure of
James Place Grill, which
had served the commu-
nity for 15 years.

Animal care week
It is Be Kind to Animals
Week, and the Suncoast
Humane Society Thrift
Shop, 656 South Tamiami

SPILL

FROM PAGE 1
balls could remain in
the gulf area for de-
cades, he said.
For now, Charlotte is
just taking a wait-and-
see approach.
"You can't just go out
to the mouth of Charlotte
Harbor and leave thou-
sands of feet of boom in
case oil does come some-
day," Sallade said. "You
have to be prudent in the
actions you take, and we
will take any actions ap-
propriate."
Charlotte County
Commissioner Rob-
ert Skidmore sent an
e-mail to Crist Tuesday
morning, requesting
Charlotte be added to
the state's emergency
declaration.



AIRPORTS
FROM PAGE 1
downgrade the airport to
discourage small corpo-
rate jets, which neigh-
bors complained about.
But council recently may
have changed its mind,
directing city staff to
work with the Federal
Aviation Administration
to find a compromise
that doesn't affect the
Lake Venice Golf Club
and a few dozen Gulf
Shores neighborhood
homes.
"When we resolve
the safety and fund-
ing issues, I expect (the
airport) to continue to
play a role as a resource
to the community," wrote
Martin.
Others agreed the
numbers are too huge,
and likely faulty.
Martin questioned the
multiplier's $83 million
figure and other stats in
the report.
"I am puzzled about
the figure of 818 people


Having a name on the
list means the county
could eventually seek
reimbursements for its
efforts. But since BP is
still the cleanup's lead
agency, no federal dol-
lars have been made
available.
Skidmore said many
hotels and resorts
throughout the area
have already lost sub-
stantial reservations
from visitors who are
postponing trips.
Crist may still add
Charlotte to his emer-
gency declaration later
this week.
"We need to be in
the forefront of how we
want to handle this,"
Skidmore said at a
county workshop Tues-
day. "You're not going
to get any assistance
unless you're included
in that declaration, and


employed (at the Venice
airport), he wrote. "That
does not seem to jibe
with any other estimates.
I find it may be one of
those type estimates like
the one the FAA used to
estimate we had 180,000
takeoffs and landings."
A study by DY Con-
sultants using cameras,
not estimates, found the
actual number is more like
60,000 annual operations.
Council Member Sue
Lang, the leading airport
critic on city council,
called the data "grossly
in error, especially the
intinerant operations
counts and numbers
of full-time-equivalent
aviation and nonaviation
jobs."
"It is not to anyone's
benefit, especially po-
tential investors, to have
significantly flawed and
erroneous data and con-
clusions in such an of-
ficial state report, which
one would normally
construe as a reliable
source," she said.
Carlucci, who has
repeatedly called for "in-


if you're not included
early, sometimes it's too
late."
Other commissioners
warned that becoming
added to the emergency
declaration could create
more harm by scaring
off visitors.
"The more urgent
thing for us to do right
now is get involved in
the statewide tourist
effort to make sure our
customers keep coming
here," said Charlotte
County Commissioner
Adam Cummings, who
previously worked
on an oil rig. "When
it comes down to it,
we're not going to have
complete control of
what does or doesn't
happen."
Cummings also hopes
the spill serves as an
eye-opener that eases
the federal govern-


tellectual honesty" in the
airport debates, agreed
the multiplier needlessly
skews the data.
"They used 2008 data.
The point is, the $20 mil-
lion (in direct impacts)
is a sort of legitimate
number," he said. "The
year 2000 master plan,
VABA and FDOT study all
come in at $20 million-
plus. After that, they can
argue with the numbers
all they want."
The FDOT study,
prepared by WilburSmith
Associates on behalf of
the FDOT, focused on 19
commercial, 11 military
airfields and 102 gen-
eral aviation airports in
Florida, and nonaviation
related businesses.
The authors estimated
aviation in Florida gener-
ates an estimated $114.7
billion in annual eco-
nomic activity.
In Southwest Florida,
the Sarasota/Braden-
ton International Air-
port employed 3,017 in
2008, according to the
study, for a total pay-
roll of $314.4 million in

ment's recent pressure
to drill off Florida's Gulf
Coast.
"As tragic as this is,
there are some impor-
tant lessons we need to
take away from it," he
said. "If these guys say
drilling won't have an
effect on our beaches,
it's the overstatement of
the century."
In Sarasota County,
commissioners opted to
take a more aggressive
approach to the spill,
declaring their own
state of emergency dur-
ing a special meeting
Tuesday afternoon.
The county has
designated six areas as
high-priority protection
points. From south to
north, they are: Stump
Pass Beach State Park,
formerly known as
Port Charlotte Beach
State Recreation Area,


total payroll annually;
Tampa's International
Airport employed 80,526
for an annual payroll of
$2.2 billion. Fort My-
ers' Southwest Florida
International Airport
employed 41,588 with a
payroll of $1.1 billion. In
all, commercial service
airport employed nearly
1 million with a payroll
of $28.8 billion.
When nonaviation re-
lated and other support
activities are figured in,
WilburSmith estimates
the total commercial
economic impact at
$90.9 billion annually.
The statewide im-
pact of general aviation
airports was pegged at


near Rotonda; Lemon
Bay Aquatic Preserve
in Englewood; South
Venice, just north of
Alligator Creek at the
south end of Caspersen
Beach; Venice Inlet,
including Venice jet-
ties; Little Sarasota Bay
in the Vamo area; and
Roberts Bay.
Sarasota County
Beach Manager George
Tatge said the first
evidence of the spill will
likely be seen in birds
and marine animals
that feed from the
water, including turtles,
dolphins, whales and
rays.
Hundreds of turtles
are expected to arrive in
Sarasota Bay within the
next two weeks, making
the waters their sum-
mer home.
Sarasota County
Commissioner Jon


$5.9 billion, with a total
of 54,250 employed and
an annual payroll of $1.7
billion.
In addition to Venice
Municipal Airport, which
WilburSmith estimates
employed 818 with an
annual payroll of $22.5
million, the follow-
ing GA airport impacts
were reported: Punta
Gorda's Charlotte County
Airport employed 1,386,
payroll $43.6 million;
Punta Gorda's Shell Creek
Airport employed 24,
payroll $692,900; Engle-
wood's Buchan Airport
employed four, payroll
$329,200.

SUN NEWSPAPERS 7A
Thaxton said the spill
is breaking new ground
in terms of emergency
preparedness. In com-
parison to hurricanes
and other natural disas-
ters, he said, "nothing
even comes close."
Neither Sarasota nor
Charlotte is calling on
volunteers at this time.
BP will hire its own per-
sonnel for the cleanup.
"You have BP and the
Coast Guard taking care
of things in Louisiana,
but that doesn't seem

OPINION


GONDOLIER SUN EDITOR
BOB MUDGE
bmudge@venicegondolier.com


OUR VIEW


More emphasis on development sought in state


The lead from the recent poll
released by Leadership Florida
was that a majority of Florid-
ians, for the first time, felt more
growth and more people in the state
was more positive than negative. Not
astounding, given the state of the
economy.
But there are some other interesting
tidbits in the annual poll, first con-
ducted in 2006. For instance:
At a time when the Legislature has
aimed to overhaul the state's public
school system, 50 percent of respon-
dents rated the quality of education
"good" or "excellent." Whether you
view that glass as half full or half
empty, the fact is the approval rating
is 8 points higher than it was two
years ago.
And the top educational priority, one-
third of respondents suggested, should
be increasing "teacher pay to attract and
retain the best teachers." Backers of the
Legislature's test-based, merit-pay bill
may argue the legislation would do that,
but it's more likely respondents saw a


general hike in pay scales as a prefer-
able course. They also didn't think too
highly of raising "standards to improve
test scores" (13 percent).
As far as taxes are concerned, it
seems the state has fallen into the
middling Goldilocks position. Forty-
eight percent thought taxes were
"about right" for the level of services
provided, while 25 percent thought
they were "a little too high" and
18 percent "much too high." Note
the "about right" position added 6
percent from 2008, while the others
stayed the same.
The response for local taxes was
similar: 45 percent "right," 28 percent
"a little" high, and 22 percent "much
too high."
In terms of efficiency, local gov-
ernment fared better than state gov-
ernment. Some 54 percent thought
the state wasted money, compared to
49 percent for local government. The
locals also beat the state on the posi-
tive side (46/40 percent) for efficiency.
Concern about household debt


and finances showed a decline this
year. Asked what put the single great-
est stress on household finances,
only 12 percent said "personal debt,"
compared to 23 percent in 2008,
which was when the last survey was
conducted.
Property tax concerns dropped
from 14 percent to 9 percent, health
care costs from 14 to 7 percent, utility
bills from 10 percent to zero, home
insurance from 10 to 7 percent and
gas prices from 7 to 2 percent.
But a new category "not having a
job" drew 15 percent, not surprising
considering the leap in unemploy-
ment figures. Above all, "other" drew
the largest response with 35 percent
(only 3 percent in 2008), perhaps re-
flecting vague stress about the overall
economy or even the possibility of job
loss in the future.
Corresponding to a more pro-
development sentiment, 69 percent
favored granting incentives to en-
courage business expansion, trending
up from 59 percent in 2006. Those


numbers indicate that county and
city officials in Sarasota County won't
have to stretch too far to convince
voters to approve new business tax
breaks in an August referendum.
Respondents also overwhelmingly
thought the state did a lousy job of
creating jobs. Only 11 percent rated
the effort "good" or "excellent," com-
pared to 36 percent in 2006. Some 85
percent gave "fair" or "poor" marks,
compared to 71 percent in 2008, 67
percent in 2007 and 51 percent in
2006. Indeed, "poor" leaped from 19
percent in 2006 to 51 percent in 2010.
The trend line is unmistakable:
People want their political leadership
to focus on job creation. It's fair to
assume that extends from the local to
the federal levels.
One final note: While 38 percent
thought the state was "worse" than
it was five years ago (48 percent
"same"), 73 percent would recom-
mend that a friend or relative move
here. That's a leap from 63 percent in
2008. Go figure.


Revenue streaming


LANG CAPASSO
It looks like the city of Venice
is following the lead set by the
airline industry. Airlines, in
order to recoup some of their
losses, are now charging for ev-
erything imaginable. They are
charging for carry-on luggage
and it won't be long before
they come up with other type
of revenue-producing ideas.
Soon they will be charging for
pillows and water; probably
you will soon pay extra for a
seat with a window. I am sure
in the back of someone's mind
is a charge to use the toilet on
the plane also.
I guess the city got tired
of being a maverick when it
comes to airplanes and their
use and decided to be a joiner
this time and say "why not?"
Getting on board with the FAA
and deciding that is what is
good for the airlines is good for
us is taking the airlines' way
of thinking and extending it to
the home front.
The first stream of revenue
source looks like it could be
the Venice Fishing Pier. Years
ago the fisherman had to pay a
nominal fee to use the pier and
do their fishing, but that was
rescinded a few years ago. Now
the city is thinking about fees
at around the $2 to $3 range
for the use of the pier. Many
local citizens are upset and feel
that if you are a Venice-area
resident you shouldn't have to
pay only those darn outsid-
ers should foot the bill. I would
think Sharky's would have
passes for customers who want
to walk off a full meal as they
walk above the water.


Like all ideas, there are good
and bad sides to the fee idea.
My fear is that once you start
charging for something, you
soon see endless possibilities
that have now revealed them-
selves to you.
How much longer can it be
before we have toll booths on
the Venetian Waterway Park
where joggers will have to put
in 50 cents to continue their
jaunt. That, of course, opens
up the possibility of toll booths
at the bridges for boaters to
make the bridge go up. Maybe
they could have toll booths
for cars to make the bridge
go down. That could be fun
if a boater and a driver put
their change in the meter at
the same time. Maybe there
could be coin meters at the
crosswalks so walkers can pay
to have the light turn in their
favor.
The possibilities are endless
for generating extra revenue.
Let's face it: There is not a day
that goes by that we don't read
about businesses or govern-
ments coming up with new
ways to create added revenue
needed to run the entities
involved. There is something
funny about taxing people to
witness two of the greatest
things Florida has, beaches
and water. Whatever the ex-
cuse raised for fees to use the
pier, it is still a tax. Regardless
of whom you designate to pay
the appointed fee, you are tax-
ing the very thing that brought
95 percent of the people to this
area.
As you may or may not
know, Englewood Beach to the
south charges $1 an hour to
use the beach. I guess anything
is palatable, as long as we
never and I repeat, never go
that route in looking for ways
to raise revenue.
You can throw in metered
parking along our avenues for
a definite no also.

SHOULD THERE BE RESTRICTIONS ON THE BRIGHTNESS OF CAR HEADLIGHTS? CALL 207-1111.


Sure, you can see better
Too bright This is a little head's-up and a mark-my-words, but
all the super-bright headlights that some of these cars are get-
ting are actually very blinding. I imagine it will take a few deaths
before anybody comes to their senses and realizes when you use
these super-bright headlights with oncoming traffic, it will be
causing quite a few accidents. I think they need to be banned
before we have a serious problem with them.


Needs a chair. I am handi-
capped. I can get into a
drugstore but I do need a
wheelchair to do my shopping.
I have called all over Venice to
find a pharmacy that offers a
wheelchair for the customer
to use. I am surprised at this.
Publix has one, but I cannot
find a drugstore. I don't think
this is a very fair thing for the
handicapped person to run
into.
Nonfactual. I find it repul-
sive and unbelievable that
this newspaper would print a
column by someone who, first,
is not using any factual infor-
mation and second promotes
his own vicious Web site. You
do not allow the callers to call
in and make personal attacks
and yet this Web site that you
have in your newspaper clearly
makes vicious and personal
attacks on our council folks
who are elected officials. His
article that he submitted is
full of nonfactual information,
and it is not helping the public
understand the real issues with
this airport.
A waste. I'm calling about
Mr. Wilmore's recent column.
Again, he makes several ab-
solutely false statements. The
airport has not always been
a C-II. It's not until the 2000
airport plan that the term C-II
was used. However, the airport
plan clearly shows that runway
protection safety and clear
zones do not extend over any
houses in the B-II dimensions.
The 1986 airport plan is the
same. DY Consultants stated
without a doubt tha the airport
is a B-II and will remain a B-II
for at least 20 years. So it's not
a downgrade. The city never re-
jected any funds for the airport.
The city has received several
million dollars in grants for the


Let 'em


Have It
13/31 runway and the master
plan. Recently runway 4/22 was
repaired. The airport is safe and
in good condition. I don't know
what Wilmore's interest is in
the airport and why he keeps
spreading lies about the airport
in order to make it a C-II. Most
of the pilots and residents are
happy with the B-II airport and
leaving it the way it is; besides,
millions of federal dollars
would be needed to make the
airport a C-II. This is a real
waste of public funds that Mr.
Wilmore is not telling us about.
Derailed. In response to the
column by E. Winston Wilm-
ore, I'd like to say this: Almost
53 years ago my daughter's
life was laid out with plans
that would lead her to be
titled a Ph.D, and we referred
to her as Miss Smartie Ph.D.
The requirements for the
designation of Ph.D. did not
get completed; therefore, she
cannot have the title of Ph.D.
The airport did not stay on the


path to meet the requirements
of a C-11. It is time for the FAA
to correct the classification to
B-i1.
Unworkable. I think the
biggest mistake that's going to
go on is having a roundabout
at the East Venice Avenue and
Jacaranda intersection. This
area has way too much traf-
fic and should be done like
the one at Center Road and
Jacaranda. That is a perfect
intersection. It moves traffic
and is very safe. I hope they
will rethink and put an inter-
section there that's workable.
We don't need a roundabout in
that area with them coming off
the expressway.
Promises, promises. Now
that the 1-mill school tax
has been passed with all the
promises sent to the voters, a
few questions: (1) When will
the 1-mill translate to new jobs
in our county for high school
grads or the thousands of oth-
ers looking for jobs? (2) They
said our property values would
increase. OK, when will that
happen? (3) They said people
buy here for good schools.
OK, when will real estate sales
increase? And what about
another tax for the rest of us in
this county, those of us strug-
gling in this recession, to help
us out? Promises made should
be promises kept.
Stamp tax. I just want to
let you all know about a new
bank fee. If you buy postage
stamps at my bank, you get 18
stamps for $9.54. If you buy
stamps at my grocery store,
you get 20 stamps for $8.80.
The bank is charging 9 cents
per stamp for the service of
purchasing stamps there. You
know what? They're going to
start charging us for every bill,
maybe 5 cents, for every bill
we take out of the bank. This
is ridiculous. So just a word to
the wise: Don't buy stamps at
your bank.
Where's mine? As a senior
on Medicare, I want only the
same health insurance that the
president, Congress and sena-
tors have. And I want it for a
lifetime, like they have it.

I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS

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 important it has become as a moneymaker for the
county and a place for snowbirds to be entertained.
It does not, however, provide any solace to the many
local organizations who used to meet in the building
pre-renovation 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. Charges are made for each chair and table,
use of the kitchen, etc.
Community organizations have had to find other ac-
commodations. All paid reasonable charges previously.
I believe this was the original intent for the building

On a recent Sunday
afternoon, my wife and
I were driving over the
Hatchett Creek Bridge
onto the island of Venice
and we saw an elderly
man walking with diffi-
culty with a walker at the
base of the bridge, trying
to turn into Michael Biehl
Park. After I dropped off
my wife at an appoint-
ment, I flagged down Da-
vid Smythe of the Venice
Police Department and
explained the situation.
Officer Smythe located
the man, who was head-
ing toward the Intra-
coastal, and in speaking
to him found out that
not only did he not know
where he lived, the man
didn't know what city he
was in. He was also tired,
hungry and thirsty, and
he was able to sit in the
back of the police cruiser
and rest.
Luckily, he had ID, and
Officer Smythe and the
VPD dispatcher were able
to make some calls and
find out where he wan-
dered off from. I wanted
to say thank you to both
Officer Smythe and VPD's
dispatchers for showing
compassion, concern
and respect to the elderly
gentleman when he so
very much needed it.

Watch out for the
backlash
Editor:
Since the Obamacare
Bill is heavily front-
loaded, only the benefits
will be noticed over the
next eight months, the
leadership stated. The
inevitable cost increases
and severe limitations


upon services will be far
enough downstream that
our naive electorate will
never make the connec-
tion and continue the
party line. Even if they
someday do, it will be too
late.
Well, maybe their pro-
jections are accurate, but
consider for a moment
one senior citizen's actual
experience.
We have used Blue
Cross Blue Shield of
Florida for our Medicare
supplemental cover-
age for about four years.
Each of those years,
like clockwork, we have
been informed of a rate
increase in June. But just
a few days ago, before
the ink was even dry on
the Obamacare Bill, we
received notification
of a rate increase four
months in advance of the
expected June increase. It
will be interesting to see
if still another follows as
usual in June.
I don't think our ex-
perience will be unique.
Insurers are being
compelled to immedi-
ately extend coverage to
many more people, some
of whom have serious
health issues. This is
required far in advance
of the date on which the
insured pool is expected
to be greatly increased
as a result of the much-
heralded compulsory
participation this bill's
financing depends upon.
Voters will notice these
changes, and despite
what the politicians
believe, they are smart
enough to make the con-
nection.

My wife and I often go
to the South Jetty to sit on

(hopefully in Venice), I
would consider donating

A trek through 'another country'


By Brooky Brown
STAFF WRITER
I sojourned, recently, in
what Psychologist Mary
Pipher calls "another
country." Sojourn means
to temporarily stay or
rest in a place. I stayed. I
did not rest.
Pipher's book, "Another
Country," refers to navi-
gating the emotional ter-
rain of our elders. For me
that would be my parents
and my aunts and uncles.
But I confess, I couldn't
even get past the physi-
cal terrain to explore the
emotional landscape.


The occasion was driving
my parents back to In-
diana after a five-month
stay in Cape Coral. How
that came about is fodder
for another column.
On the way to Indiana,
we had to take a slight
detour into Kentucky
to visit my dad's oldest-
living sister, my Aunt
Gladys. After a long day
of travel, we arrived in
the "other" country.
I carried the first bag
inside and hurried back
out.
"Why does it smell like
gas in the house?" I said.
"It always smells like


that," Mom said, "but
your dad and aunt can't
smell it."
And that meant what?
I shouldn't worry about
succumbing to gas fumes
because their olfactory
senses weren't working?
The smell was strongest
by the kitchen range,
which had two pilot
lights. I was told they
were the reason for the
smell, so I shouldn't
worry.
Hardly comforting,
since my roiling stomach
thought there was plenty
of reason to worry.
I also learned that


along with asphyxiat-
ing on gas while I slept,
I might get my toes
nibbled by mice. Aunt
Glad was on the hunt,
though, as she had baited
traps set throughout the
house.
Comforting.
Then the smoke alarm
began chirping because
it needed a new battery. I
asked Aunt Glad, who is
94 and has poor hearing,
if she had any batteries
for it. She didn't know. I
suspect she didn't care
since she couldn't hear it
chirping.
That night my par-


ents retired to the guest
room, Aunt Glad and
her 13-year-old Boston
Terrier, Sweetie Pie,
retired to their room and
I stared wide-eyed at the
ceiling from the living-
room sofa.
The smoke alarm was
chirping every 30 sec-
onds. Someone's cell
phone was beeping every
15 seconds and every
hour an operatic clock
assaulted my ear drums
and rankled my nerves.
Beyond all imagina-
tion, I somehow dosed
off during this noisy
night from hell. But not


for long. In the middle of
the night, I awoke.
Sure enough, the
cacophony of chirping,
beeping and operatic
music hadn't ceased. And
as I lay there, a new
sound assailed my ears:
plink, plink, plink. I dis-
covered it was a mouse
behind the couch playing
with the floor lamp cord.
Toward morning I fell
sleep wondering why by
all that is holy a woman
who is deaf would need a
smoke alarm.

Issues clear in
council election
Editor:
This November will be
a unique opportunity for
the citizens of Venice to
set a course for a posi-
tive upturn in its local
economy. Now is the time
to set our direction for
the future, use what we
have and capitalize on
these assets.
I feel this economic
downturn and know that
we need strong leader-
ship on council.
Growth. Not just
growth, but the lack of it.
Economy. Support local
businesses; build a base for
all and assist the services.
Airport. Improve; repair;
create jobs and enhance its
economic impact.
Government. Streamline;
tighten our belts; improve
customer service and save
dollars.
Lawsuits. Work within
the system; listen to consul-
tants and stop wasting tax
dollars.
Leadership. Use com-
mon sense; no NIMBYS,
and have the fortitude to
make changes.
These are the issues
facing Venice now and
should be how we look
into the future.
I have been asked by
many people to run again
for election and am con-
sidering it, but the nasty
politics of personal destruc-
tion seems to now domi-
nate our election process.
Questionable past actions,
even if unsubstantiated,
may deter candidates from
entering the race who hesi-
tate to face the onslaught of
local bloggers.
I know I am not perfect,
but to quote the Bible:

cast the first stone."

MR. SHEEPSHEAD

A fisherman's

prayer

It's hard to believe there is a
chance our shoreline in Venice
could be devastated in a few
weeks or less from the oil spill in
the Gulf of Mexico. Unbelievable
and scary.
Even if we are spared, what
about other areas of the Gulf
states? We thought red tide was
bad. Apparently this is much
worse. The wildlife and sea life
could take a much harder hit.
We could lose generations of
our inshore fishery. The scien-
tists say the oil will settle on the
bottom and kill everything in its
wake.
Can you imagine no fish at
the jetty or the Venice Municipal
Pier? It wouldn't be a week- or
month-long problem. It could
be years. I'm sorry to write such
a doomsday article, but it could
become true.
A couple of questions come
up regarding this potential
catastrophe. Will fast-swimming
predators be able to swim away
from this spill? What would
this do to the millions of young
sheepshead fry? How about the
turtle hatching season? How
about our already-troubling
snook situation? The list goes on
and on.
Let's hope there will be a
better ending to this story.
Meanwhile, maybe we should
all dream, pray and or hope
this doesn't happen to any area.
Don't know what else to say but
it's so sad.
Well, fellow Sheepsheadites,
we'll talk again next week.

Mr Sheepshead is Dave
Hack. Contact him at

BASEBALL CLASS 5A-REGION 3 QUARTERFINAL




Four-run sixth lifts Venice


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR
Every time Tampa Gaither
scored Venice had an answer.
The Indians finally solved
the Cowboys in the sixth in-
ning by taking advantage of
Gaither's wild pitching to score
four runs on just one hit to lift
Venice to a 7-3 win in the Class
5A-Region 3 quarterfinal on
Tuesday night at Venice High.
The Indians (18-10), who
have won 14 of their last 16
games, will play at Tampa King
at 7 p.m., Friday in the re-
gional semifinals. King (17-10)
defeated Manatee, 3-2, in their
quarterfinal game.
Tied 3-3 entering the bot-
tom of the sixth inning, Venice
plated four runs on a hit, three
walks and hit batter.
Venice's Matt Tellor led off
with a walk off Gaither closer
Dylan Hathcock, who entered
with a 1.30 ERA and 48 strike-
outs in 27 innings. After a foul
out, Tommy Hanks walked.
Venice coach Craig Faulkner
brought in Cameron Sloan to
run for Tellor and Brett Swikle
to run for Hanks. Hathcock
got a strikeout for the second

1-2 pitch to load the bases.
Brent Skogen, who an inning
earlier hit a tying solo home
run, reached on another walk
to force in Sloan with the tying
run. James Browning singled
into left field to score Swikle
with the go-ahead run. It was
Venice's first lead of the game.
The ball went under the left


fielder's glove for an error scor-
ing Geers and Skogen to give
Venice a 7-3 cushion.
Venice reliever Tommy
Hanks, who struck out the
first four batters he faced, got
a foul out for the first out in
the seventh inning. Hanks
then got a strikeout on a called
third strike then struck out
Brady North to end the game.


Hanks (4-1) got the win with
six strikeouts in 2 2/3 innings.
Gaither (21-5) opened the
first inning with a run off Ven-
ice ace Aaron Rhodes.
Justin Delgado led off with a
single between shortstop and
third base. Drew Doty followed
with a single up the middle.
Brady North bunted back to
Rhodes, who tried to get Del-
gado on a force play at third
base. The throw was ruled late
loading the bases. Clean-up
hitter Mike Danner worked
a walk after fouling off three
pitches with two strikeouts to
force in Delgado with the first
run.
Rhodes worked out of the
bases-loaded jam with a
strikeout, groundout and an-
other strikeout.
Venice tied it in the bottto of
the first inning.
Browning led off by slicing a
single off the second baseman's
glove. Joe lorio's sacrifice bunt
moved Browning to second
base. Browning advanced to
third on a passed ball, which
fell out of the catcher's glove.

VENICE LITTLE LEAGUE


City Cup begins


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR
The Venice Little League closed out the regu-
lar season for the majors division on Saturday
with their final games as well as some special
events as the eight teams begin the Majors City
Cup on Thursday at Chuck Reiter Complex.
In the opening round at 5:30 p.m. Thursday,
top-seeded Kiwanis plays Lawyers and No. 2
seed Babe's Plumbing takes on Sertoma while

BASEBALL: Indians rally over Gaither to advance to regional semifinals on Friday


FROM PAGE 10
Brent Krauss walked
then Tellor grounded to
second baseman, who got
a force out at second. The
throw to first base trying
for a double play was late
and Browning scored the
tying run.
The Cowboys took a
2-1 lead in the third in-
ning without a hit. Doty
walked and stole second


base. With one out, a
groundout moved Doty
to third base. A grounder,
which went under the
shortstop's glove for an
error scored Doty with
the go-ahead run.
Venice tied it at 2-2
with a run in the bot-
tom of the fourth inning
off Gaither starter Alex
Milne, who entered with
a 8-0 record. With one
out, Alec Stiver walked.


A groundout to second
base moved courtesy
runner Sloan to second
base. Sophomore Kevin
Guthrie singled up the
middle to score Sloan
just ahead of the throw
from the outfield with
the tying run.
The see-saw game con-
tinued as Gaither went
ahead, 3-2 with a run
in the fifth inning. With
two outs, Danner singled


between shortstop and
third base. Danner stole
second and scored on a
single into left field by
Alejandro Brunet. Ven-
ice brought in reliever
Tommy Hanks, who got
a strikeout to end the
inning.
For the third time, Ven-
ice tied the game as Sko-
gen crushed a 1-0 pitch
over left-field wall for a
home run in the bottom


of the fifth inning, setting
up the wild sixth inning.

Manatee mortalities continue to rise


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER
Even if another one
doesn't die in Florida
waters for the rest of the
year, manatee mortali-
ties have surpassed last
year's record.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Research Insti-
tute reported this week
that 460 manatees have
died. That total sur-
passes the 2009 year-end
record of 429 reported
manatee deaths. Flori-
da's reported manatee
deaths rose above last
year's total in March, the
institute reported.
Despite the high death
toll, the annual aerial
count of manatees in
state waters reached
5,067 statewide, which
is significantly higher
than it's been in previ-


ous years. In January, 21
observers from 10 orga-
nizations participated in
the count and spotted
2,779 manatees roaming
in waters along Florida's
East Coast and another
2,288 manatees on the
West Coast.
The cold winter and
chilled waters claimed
the lives of 226 manatees
that died of cold stress,
the institute reported.
Another 128 manatees
were too decomposed
to determine their exact
causes of death, but
researchers suspect cold
stress claimed a number
of them.
The manatee cold-
stress syndrome can
result when the marine
mammals endure pro-
longed exposure to wa-
ter temperatures below
68 degrees. Cold waters


can cause the marine
mammals to become le-
thargic and stop eating,
thereby making them
susceptible to secondary
ailments.
So far this year in
Sarasota County six
manatees have died,
one of injuries sustained
from a watercraft, four
from cold stress and
one from undetermined
causes.

Future perils
Florida manatees,
which are now listed as
an endangered species,
don't have the brightest
of futures, especially in
Southwest Florida, ac-
cording to experts.
"In the short term, we
expect a slight increase
in most populations,
except (Southwest


Florida)," said Julien
Martin, a state mana-
tee researcher. "In the
long term, we expect a
decline over the next 100
years."
Recently, Martin said,
state researchers joined
federal U.S. Geological
Survey Wildlife Research
Center researchers to
devise better statisti-
cal methodologies to
determine the health
and survival of manatee
populations.
According to a recent
USGS report, Southwest
Florida is expected to
see a decline in its man-
atee populations both in
the short and long term
due to the high mortal-
ity rates, primarily in
Lee County, and the loss
of warm-water refuges
in the winter months.
In three generations,


manatees could see a 50
percent decline in their
population.
"While estimated
probability of extinction
is low, (the statistical
model) predicts that
the current and emerg-
ing threats are likely to
result in a long-term
decline in the state wide
population and a change
in the regional distribu-
tion of manatees," the
report stated.
According to the state
research institute, after
reaching sexual ma-
turity in four to seven
years, female manatees
generally give birth to
one calf every two or
three years. The calves
stay with their moth-
ers up to 2 1/2 years.
In captivity, manatees
can live up to 50 or 60
years. However, in the


wild, manatees are only
expected to survive into
their 30s. The institute
reported of one "dis-
tinctly scarred" wild
manatee reaching 39
years old.
The federal report
suggests manatee popu-
lations are expected
to increase annually
from 2 to 5 percent in
Northwest Florida and
in the St. Johns River. In
Southwest Florida, how-
ever, the growth rate is
expected to decline 3.7
percent annually. Along
Florida's Atlantic coast,
manatee populations
are expected to grow
over the next 10 to 15
years, but those popula-
tions are also expected
to eventually slide into
a decline.

INDIAN: buildings on Indian Avenue get approval from commission
FROM PAGE1A


sale" signs still on the existing building don't mean property owner
Marvin Kaplan isn't serious about moving forward with construc-
tion.
"The project is under consideration and there is no specific start
date," Hibner said on Tuesday.
"With all due respect, it took three years to get here," Hibner said.
"(Kaplan) has toyed with the idea of just selling it. Construction
pricing today is moderate. Marry it with increasing demand, and
you win the game."
The project received praise from commissioners.
"This is probably one of the most exciting projects in the city
lately," said Sid Shrauger. "I gather it's already a model for others.


Owners of a planned Walgreens across the street recently sought
an extension of their site and development permit.
Tom Slaughter, general manager of development for the city, said
the projects are a positive sign.
"We are seeing more traffic through the (planning) office."
Couple that with numerous draft city-initiated code amendments,
Slaughter said, and "you may want to buckle in and get ready for a
swift ride for the next couple years."

SHARING
FROM PAGE 1
experiences."
The state-created cur-
riculum covers a whole
range of issues aimed at
helping people become
better foster parents.
Applicants learn what to
expect from a foster child,
including the types of
abuses they often suf-
fer, the losses they have
experienced and the type
of skill sets foster parents
need to help deal with
these issues.
"It's fairly in-depth,"
said McLaughlin, who
used to teach the MAPP
class for the Children's
Network in Fort Myers.
"I don't think that any
course can prepare you
for taking on a foster
child and what it will
mean in getting them in
your home. But it will at
least give you the tools
you need."
Applicants are also
subjected to a back-
ground screening by the
Florida Department of
Law Enforcement, in ad-
dition to a home health-
department inspection, a
radon gas inspection and
a health screening.
Applicants are then
assigned a licensing
specialist who will work
with them to select a
child that might be right
for their home. Some
parents, for example,
may not want to take on
infants.
"My wife and I were
foster parents many years
ago," Marer said. "Be-
cause we both worked,
we had to have school-
aged kids. We couldn't
take the younger kids
because we would have
had to figure out baby-
sitting."

Taking care
of a child
Jody Jester and her
husband, Ray originally
thought they would just
take on one child. And
the Sarasota couple said
they never take on a child
older than their own.
"You can put all of
these stipulations on it,
and then your heart can
be changed," Jody Jester
said.
Things don't always
work out as planned, but
in their eyes they worked
out for the best. The Jest-
ers have had three foster
children since October,
aged 3, 5, and 6, in ad-


edition to their own two
children, ages 3 and 5.
The three children were
their very first placement
in the foster care system.
Officials try hard to
keep siblings together
when they place children
with foster parents. That
can be difficult, though,
when there is a large
family. But the Jesters
had an opportunity to
bring together the three
siblings who were in
three different foster
homes in three different
counties.
So far, the experience
has been positive. The
new children have gotten
along well with the Jest-
ers' son and daughter.
"They were excited,
and thankfully they play
really well together," she
said.
As with most foster
care situations, the ul-
timate goal is to reunite
the three siblings with
their biological parents.
Currently, the children
have supervised parental
visits about once a week.

Letting go
About half of foster
care situations end
with the children being
reunited with their birth
parents, according to
McLaughlin. Janna Konke
has gone through that
twice, and would rather
not do it again.
The Konkes previously
had two children who
had to go back to their
birth parents. One was 18
months old, and the other
was just 11 months.
"That was pretty
rough," she said.
Of their current foster
children, she said they
have a great relation-
ship with the biological
parents of their youngest
one. The Konkes have
become friends with the
parents of the child's
mother, and the mother
recently agreed to pro-
ceed with giving the child
up to the Konkes for
adoption.
Janna Konke said the
mother realized after she
was given back her baby
that the girl was more
attached to her foster
parents. The mother
willingly signed over
her child to the Konkes
- a rare move, but one
welcomed by the family,
which will legally take in
a new daughter once the
legal matters are sorted
out.

Q. Why does my
audiologist think I
need to use two
hearing aids when
I think I can get


by using
one?


A. In vision,
know that if


only




you
you


cover one eye, you
have no depth
perception and it is
the same thing
with hearing. The
ears must work
together in a noisy
environment in
order for us to
understand speech
clearly in difficult
listening situations.
The brain's job is
to compare
spectral, intensity


and temporal
coming from


cues
both


ears and to


integrate
signals from


the
both


ears to make sense
of the sounds. In
other words, if you
want to be able to


hear just
person in


one


crowded room, you
need your two ears
to work together.

Garden festival draws record crowd


SUN PHOTOS BY AUDREY BLACKWELL


Frog Hollow was a hit for children, where planting in shoes, face painting and puppet shows took place.


AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR
Ask Maida Atkins,
president of the Venice
Area Garden Club, what a
festival can do. The club's
standard flower show,
April 10-11, added a fes-
tival and drew a crowd of
more than 1,200 people.
The previous show, two
years ago, drew some 200
attendees.
"Adding the festival
and children's activities
made the difference,"
Atkins said. "If you've not
been to a garden show,
it doesn't mean much to
you, but a festival attracts
more people."
Increasing the events
attendance is impor-
tant to club members as


the club's mission is to
educate the public about
the value of gardening.
Marilyn Slocum, VAGC
vice president, helped
Atkins work out details
for the festival.
"We wanted to do
a portion for the kids
because they are our
future," Atkins said.
Festival
The festival/flower
show took place at Kimal
Event Center, off Jackson
Road between Center
Road and East Venice
Avenue. Built primarily
for the use of the lumber
company and its employ-
ees, the center proved an

ideal venue.
Floral entries evaluated
by flower show judges
were inside the center;
other festival elements
were outside. Kicking
off the festival were a
ribbon-cutting, presen-


station of colors and the
Pledge of Allegiance by
Boy Scout Troop 77, and
welcoming speeches by
Sarasota County Com-
missioner Jon Thaxton,
Atkins, Slocum and Al
Bavry, president of Kimal
Lumber.
Children's activities


took place in Frog Hol-
low, an area created by
VAGC members, and
included puppet shows,
face painting, balloon
sculpting and planting
of shoe gardens in shoes
donated by Goodwill
Industries. Goodwill do-
nated 100 pairs of shoes.
"We drilled a hole in
the bottoms of them and
the kids planted plants in
the shoes on Saturday,"
Atkins said."On Sunday,
children planted magic
beans for a magic bean
stalk, like 'Jack in the
Beanstalk,'" she said.
"Magic dust," made
from ground up worm
casing, was donated by a
vendor who runs a worm
farm. Craft and floral
demonstrations were
held in a tent and inside
the center. Attendees
learned to do bead work
and make contrived
flowers and basic floral
design. Activities also
included a yoga dem-
onstration and enter-
tainment by The Cry'n
Shames and Stage Door
Dancers. There were


poster awards and raffle
drawings.

Flower show
The new location
and format resulted in
increased show entries as
well as increased atten-
dance.
"In spite of our com-
plaints about the cold
winter we had and
damage to plants, we
had more entries in our
horticulture competition
than ever before,"Atkins
said. "We had close to
250 entries."
In the past, the club
has had fewer than 150
horticulture entries.
VAGC switched to having
shows only in alternate
years because of the
effort to put a show
together, Atkins said.
This was her third show,
so she estimated that the
club went to the every-
other-year format six
years ago.
The floral competition,
titled Earth Our Shin-
ing Jewel, was a standard
flower show open to all
area clubs. Entries were


received from members
of Sarasota Garden Club
and Lemon Bay Garden
Club as well as VAGC.
Entries were judged in
three divisions: Special
Exhibits, which included
education and crafts, De-
sign, and Horticulture. In
the Education category, a
gardening entry showed
how to grow something
to eat at home in 18
square feet of space.
"This goes back to the
Victory garden concept,"
Atkins said.

Green heaven
Having the flower show
at Kimal Event Center
turned out to be a match
made in green heaven.
"Kimal is a green
building,"Atkins said.
"It is made with green
woods and materials. For
example, when the air
conditioner comes on,
green (energy efficient)
tubes roll out. They col-
lapse when it shuts off.
And there are no chemi-
cals on anything that
would hurt people.
The building was built


with a lot of reclaimed
logs, bamboo and natu-
ral woods that are renew-
able. Paints are nontoxic.
The company's culture is
green, showing a concern
for the environment."
According to Atkins,
Kimal Lumber was one
of the builders of Florida
House in Sarasota. The
owners hold seminars for
people in the building
industry about the use of
natural building materi-
als and techniques.
She said they deal
with companies that are
environmentally friendly,
such as Weyerhauser,
which replants when it
cuts trees.
Atkins and Slocum
asked Bavry about
holding the flower show
there, and he offered it at
no charge.
"It is part of our cul-
ture," Bavry said. "This is
a green building. We hold
a lot of product meetings
here. This is the first time
the community has been
involved."

PHOTO COURTESY OF PLAYER'S THEATRE
Greg Weigers, left, Libby Fleming, Michael Morris, Truett Tomlin, Lucie Erber and Kelleen Purdin perform in
The Who's Tommy through May 8 at the Players Theatre in Sarasota.
Due to overwhelming response, the Players Theatre is extending the performance of The Who's Tommy
through Saturday, May 8. Tommy, Peter Townshend's tale of a young boy's journey from pain to triumph, has
become one of the most electrifying events of rock and roll ever to play on the stage. In 1993 the musical
won five Tony Awards, including Best Score. After witnessing the accidental murder of his mother's lover by
his father, Tommy is traumatized into catatonia. As he grows, he suffers abuse at the hands of his sadistic
relatives and neighbors. He eventually becomes an international pinball superstar. Tickets cost $23 for
adults, $12 for students. Call 365-2494 or go online to www.theplayers.org for showtimes and more infor-
mation. The Players Theatre is at 838 N. Tamiami Tr., Sarasota, FL 34236. The Players Box Office is located on
Tamiami Trail between 10th Street and Boulevard of the Arts.

WE'VE COME A LONG WAY


DR. DAN BUSCH, DR. ERENE ROMANSKI
CHIROPRACTOR
At one time, it was a struggle for Doctors of
Chiropractic to be allowed to practice their
healing profession. The battle was won
decisively. Now there are laws in every state
of the Union which recognize this right.
Allowed to practice, recognition and
appreciation for Chiropractic Physicians
follow. The federal government was in the
vanguard, recognizing chiropractic as a
legitimate health service under its Medicare


program. Presently, tens of millions of
dollars are being paid to providers of
chiropractic services. In addition, Congress
has authorized similar payments under
Medicaid. There are also laws which provide
for chiropractic services to be covered under
workmen's compensation programs. The GI
Bill pays for chiropractic education, and U.S.
Department of Immigration grants student
status to aliens enrolled in U.S. chiropractic
colleges.

FROM GIRL SCOUTS OF

Student volunteers and
teachers from Sara-
sota County Schools will
conduct activities with
the children that involve
memorization. Students

Three sessions will
be held for an allotted
time depending on the
grade level. Kindergarten

sions; third through fifth
grade will have 45-min-
ute sessions. There will

Students benefit from STEM


FROM FLORIDA DEPARTMENT
OF EDUCATION
On April 28, thousands
of Florida students in
middle and high schools
learned first-hand what
it takes to tackle an excit-
ing career in science,
technology, engineering
and math during the De-
partment of Education's
first-ever STEM Virtual
Career Fair.
The online fair was
hosted in partnership
with the Florida Virtual
School and Elluminate
Technology, and trans-
formed ordinary brick-
and-mortar classrooms


into a virtual atmosphere
that provided engag-
ing dialogue to inspire
students and answer
their questions about
pursuing careers in these
exciting fields of study.
"Scores of Florida stu-
dents were treated to the
inherent diversity and
enriching nontraditional
job opportunities found
within the professional
fields of STEM," said
Education Commissioner
Dr. Eric J. Smith.
"Thanks to our part-
ners, FLVS and Ellumi-
nate, STEM experts from
across the country were


able to communicate di-
rectly with our students
about their careers and
encourage a new gen-
eration of Floridians to
pursue a future in these
critical fields of study."
"Increasing the num-
ber of students who elect
careers in science and
math is critical to our
state's long-term eco-
nomic competitiveness,"
said FLVS president and
chief executive officer
Julie Young.
Professionals from
Mote Marine Laboratory
and Aquarium, Scripps
Florida, Entertainment


Arts, Florida Council on
Economic Education,
Florida Department of
Law Enforcement, FLVS
and award-winning
composer Zain Ef-
fendi offered an insider's
perspective on their
lives and careers while
answering student ques-
tions about what it takes
to be successful.
"In today's knowledge-
based global market-
place, science, technol-
ogy, engineering and
math are the foundations
for the high-wage, high-
demand jobs that are
key to a vibrant Florida


economy," said Cynthia
R. Lorenzo, director of
the Agency for Workforce
Innovation.
"The career fair helped
illustrate for thousands
of Florida students the
importance of these
essential skills to suc-
ceeding in careers such
as bioscience, engineer-
ing, business, renewable
energy, green technology,
law enforcement and the
fine arts and the bound-
less opportunities for
their future," she said.
"I applaud the De-
partment of Education's
efforts to get students


excited about STEM
learning and careers,"
said Dr. Jimmie L. Davis
Jr., chair of STEMflorida,
the collaborative state
partnership charged to
unify and bolster STEM
talent development ef-
forts among business,
education, workforce and
economic development.

When Edna Rohan, presi-

"You have no idea what a dif-

The special person of this
week is Leslie Ann Jones.
This nice lady plays the oboe
with the Venice Symphony. She
is featured in several numbers
in most concerts. Her enthusi-
asm, smile and musical talent
represent all that is right with
the musicians in the Venice
Symphony.
When not performing, she
teaches. One of her hallmarks is
that when the orchestra plays a
salute to veterans, she proudly
stands as a member of the U.S.
Marine Corps.
Leslie Ann Jones is one of the
musicians who make Venice a
great place to live.

There's an art
to Mable's roses
ot only is the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art
considered the 20th most valuable art museum in the United
States, it also has the country's best rose garden.
Actually, it has BEEN the country's best rose garden. To earn
the title for yet another year, the museum needs your help.
Log on to www.rose.org before July 1 to cast your vote in the
All-American Rose Selections (AARS) America's Best Rose
Garden competition.
Each person logging on can vote just once, The 10 gardens
with the most votes will be finalists, to be visited by AARS ex-
perts who will evaluate the gardens based on beauty, creativity
and the garden's overall contribution to its community.
Mable's garden is even more beautiful now than ever thanks
to a team of volunteer gardeners who visit weekly to prune and
weed and do all the things that rose gardens need to look their
best.
The garden is a short stroll away from John and Mable's
former winter home, Ca d'Zan. If you have not been there, plan
a visit soon. While there, enjoy lunch in the Banyan Cafe or at
Treviso, the charming Italian dining room in the museum's visitor
center.
There is no charge to visit the garden or any of the outside
attractions at the museum, 5401 Bay Shore Road, Sarasota,
34243. Call 941-359-3700.

Local entertainment and music industry professionals work to put on the first Battle of the Bands at Wize Guyz in Port Charlotte beginning May 7. Shown from left to right are: Mark Raissis, sound
engineer; Michael Hovencamp, Shell Creek Music Company; Gibson Cage, MC and host; Sean Bryan, co-promoter and Wize Guyz manager; Sebastian Randazzo, vice president of Angelic Sounds
Recording Studio, Chris Corridino, promoter; Dallas Sita, organizational team; Jeff Dessler Jr., president of Angelic Sounds Recording Studio; and Bobby Khaleel, owner ofWize Guyz.


BY SHARE DERRICKSON
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The Charlotte County area, Sean Bryan,
a manager at Wize Guyz in Port Char-
lotte said, is a hot spot for underground
independent music of many genres. "There are
so many great bands out there playing their own
original music, and not many venues for them to
perform and get exposure," he said.
Bryan, along with several other key players
in the local music scene, have collaborated
together to not only give these bands a venue,
but to put on the first ever Battle of the Bands
that will run for four Friday evenings in the
month of May. Bryan, the co-producer of the
event, said the idea for the battle was more
than well received by those already working in
the industry who wanted to offer up their help
to spotlight new bands and bring the under-
ground scene to the surface.
"It seems to me like a great opportunity to
get them exposure and get them out there and
the battle was a way to show the talent around
here out to maybe a different crowd," he said,


adding the winning band of the competition will
have the opportunity to be signed to a label.
The word was put out via Facebook and
word of mouth, and the response, he said,
has been overwhelming. "I had them submit a
recording to me. I listened and called back the
ones that I thought would work well."
There will be 16 bands that will compete
over three Friday evenings from 8 p.m. to 2
a.m. at Wize Guyz in Port Charlotte. "There will
be six bands per night with the exception of the
last night of competition when there will be five
bands. They each will get to play three of their
original songs."
The bands, he said, will be judged by a
panel of people who are familiar with the local
entertainment industry. "The judging will be silent
judging I want to keep the Karma of this really
good."
"I grew up here all my life and original music
went a long way in Charlotte County and there
were so many different places you could play and
now, there are few clubs or venues for original
music."


The first three Friday will be the competition
for the top three spots with the final Friday to
have a final battle. The winner will receive a full
recording contract by Angelic Sounds Studio in
Port Charlotte.
Shell Creek Music Company of Port Charlotte
is helping out by also offering a gift certificate for
use in the store.
Bryan said there were many to thank for
making sure the battle not only comes to fruition,
but inspire it to be a yearly event, among them
are two local celeb bands that have helped put
the area on the map for local talent. 'We have
to thank the Gibson Cage Band and Carnival of
Soul. We couldn't have done it without them and
their time and talent."
The event will be hosted by Gibson Cage and
his band along with members of Carnival of Soul
will also collaborate on stage one of the evenings.
"Anytime I get an opportunity to help out origi-
nal music, I am all for it and I will do everything I
can for anyone working hard to bring that music
to the forefront," Cage said.
Bryan said ,"We also have a great group of


volunteers that are going to help the bands set up
and break down," he said, adding the event has
become a labor of love by many, including Bobby
Khaleel, owner of Wize Guyz who wants his club
to be a place for indie groups to get exposure and
an audience.
The battle, Bryan said, is an opportunity for the
music-loving members of the community to come
out and listen to some new music that stretches
across several genres from alternative rock to
heavy metal. "For a $5 cover charge, people can
come out and listen to what might be the future of
our music industry have a good time, eat some
good food, and support the local talents. It is go-
ing to be a great event."
The first battle starts Friday, May 7 from 8
p.m. to 2 p.m, followed by May 14 and 21 with
the final battle May 28. Wize Guyz is located
at 3492 Tamiami Trail in Port Charlotte and
can be reached at 941-235-0167 or call Bryan
941-623-2671. For a full lineup of bands, see

Staycations are in. A staycation is a vacation
enjoyed within a few hours of home.
Those of us who live and work in
Southwest Florida are just three to four hours
away from places that most Americans only
dream about. Anything that close is ideal for
a Staycation.
A press release I received from the
Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention &
Visitors Bureau offers some great deals as
well as many suggestions for ways to take
advantage of that other Florida city inspired
by Venice, Italy and its canals. Inspired by an
Expedia study that showed Americans to be
vacation deprived, the release inspired me
to add a few ideas of my own.
In the time it takes to drive to an airport,
be strip-searched at security and fly to a hub
city, most of us can get in the car, drive to
Fort Lauderdale and check into a hotel. That
leaves more time for the two-for-one deals
at golf courses, scuba lessons at the beach,
spa treatments or turtle walks.
Fort Lauderdale's "Pack Your Bags, We're
Staying Home" in-state program includes
a new Learn to Dive program that includes
free dives and hotels plus certification;
two-for-one admission at the Museum of Art,
Bonnet House Museum and Fort Lauderdale

Florida residents are gold for Florida's
theme parks, which all tend to run
special resident deals during their slow
seasons.
The latest deal is not only good for the rest
of the year but it is for a brand new attraction
at SeaWorld's South Seas-themed Aquatica
waterpark.
The deal is an unlimited admission pass
good everyday after 2 p.m. for residents. The
pass is good from now through the end of
the year, with no blackout dates. The new
attraction is the Omaka Rocka, a waterslide
that sounds as though it is geared toward
Olympics-level thrill seekers.
According to the press release from
SeaWorld, Omaka Rocka features high-speed
tubes, half-pipe funnels and near-vertical
slides. Riders will go down flumes and into
funnels where they will slide up high on one
side much like a skateboarder, and then go
back and forth in the funnel until propelled out
into the final splashdown.There are size limi-
tations for riders. Children must be at least 48
inches tall and no one may ride who weighs
more than 250 pounds.
Unlike other water parks in the state,
SeaWorld offers more than a good soaking.
Expect animal encounters too.
The Florida resident price is $49.95 per
person, for adults and children, for admission
after 2 p.m. until closing, everyday.
With the money you save, spend a night or
two at a nearby hotel such as the Renais-
sance Orlando at SeaWorld, which currently
is offering several special deals such as Kids
Eat Free, spa packages, AAA discounts and
family escape packages. With a waterfall in
the lobby and a huge pool and lovely gardens
outside, the hotel continues the waterpark
theme and also is close to Aquatica, Discover
Cove and SeaWorld itself.
To learn more about Aquatica, Omaka
Rocka or to purchase a pass, visit www.
AquaticaBySeaWorld.com.
For information on the Renaissance Or-
lando at SeaWorld, call toll-free 800-327-6677.

"Old Florida,


BY STEPHEN BAUMANN
STAFF WRITER
When you hear an attraction de-
scribed as "Old Florida" there's
always the possibility it's just code
for "cheesy."
That's probably why I have avoided Sara-
sota Jungle Gardens for years despite regu-
lar visits from young grandchildren from up
north and my need to entertain and amaze
them with distinctive tropical things. Jungle
Gardens always seemed a little pricey, and
I'd never heard a comment better than a
mild, "It's OK."
OK. Turns out I was talking to the wrong
people. Jungle Gardens is far from Orlando's
manicured corporate extravaganzas. It's
an earnest high school musical compared
to Broadway. But that's a good thing in my
book.
The 10 acres on the northwestern edge
of Sarasota, off U.S. 41 south of the Ringling
Museum, were first purchased in the 1930s
to be developed as a subtropical garden
oasis. It was opened to the public in 1940.
The place doesn't have the look of a
formal garden, but a lush, attractive environ-
ment of unusual, tall trees, bushes and
plants with meandering paths throughout.
There is plenty of natural shade, which
keeps you cool on a hot day. Anyone who's
been to Mouseland in August knows what
a blessing that is; the heavily forested park
looks nice and it feels great.
The animals are the main attraction.
More than 80 percent have been rescued


or donated, according to the Gardens' Web
site, so the place is something of a sanctu-
ary. There are owls, cockatoos and macaws.
The exotic birds squawk loudly and inces-
santly. There are tortoises, alligators and
a crocodile. A reptile house has boas and


' and that's


a good thing

enough of this.
The park was a big hit all around, really. The
kids (a 2-year-old grandson came too) could run
around as much as they wanted. They enjoyed
the small playground, sat in an old wooden toy
train to their eat their popcorn lunch. There is a
nice snack bar (not overpriced) but you also can
carry in food for a picnic. It's that kind of casual
place.
There is a reptile and gator show, as well as
a couple of bird shows. (One bicycling bird on a
wire was a retired star of the "Ed Sullivan Show."
He brought down the house.) The shows were
low-key affairs, nothing overwhelming or flashy.
Fact is, there was nothing flashy at all. Again,
that's a good thing in my book.
The centerpiece attraction is a large area
where you can mingle with a large flock of
flamingos. Buy a small bag of feed (50 cents)
and these odd birds will be eating out of your
hand, or off the ground in front of you if you
are a 5-year-old girl.
We spent a good four hours there, which
was just enough for our crew. It was well worth
the admission ($15 for adults, $10 for kids age
3-12). The teenagers in the crowd seemed
to enjoy themselves also, as far as I could
tell, but the preteen age group was the perfect
demographic.
Sarasota Jungle Gardens is nicely kept, laid-
back, friendly, charming and extremely little-kid
friendly. Nothing cheesy about it. All the better
aspects of Old Florida, I'd say.
Sarasota Jungle Gardens is located at 3701
Bay Shore Road, Sarasota, For more information,

smaller snakes.
When I finally made the trip a few weeks
ago with my son and grandchildren, the
lemurs were the biggest hit, especially one
lemur couple taking care of the tiny lemur
newborn. The girls (age 5 and 7) couldn't get

Train to Memphis" is one of a string of successful
musical shows developed inhouse by resident
artistic director Richard Hopkins with managing
director Rebecca Langford and resident pianist


writing

Jim Prosser. Playing through June 5, "Night Train"
features music that put Memphis on the map
and accelerated the careers of singers like Elvis
Presley.
John Biguenet's "Shotgun," playing through
May 29 in the Keating Theatre, is part of a rolling
world premier as the winner of a National New
Play Network award.The story concerns a white
man and his son who rent half of a shotgun
house in a black community undamaged by the
forces of Hurricane Katrina.

Sarasota Youth Opera to present 'The Black Spider'


PROVIDED BY THE SARASOTA OPERA
Sarasota Youth Opera will present British
composer Judith Weir's 'The Black Spider"
at 7:30 p.m. Friday and 1:30 p.m. Saturday
in the William E. Schmidt Opera Theater of the
Sarasota Opera House.
'The Black Spider" deftly weaves two stories
together: a 15th-century story by Jeremias Got-
thelf about an evil spider that spreads plague
and pestilence throughout the land; and a 1983
newspaper account of a deadly virus that struck


site workers and archeologists excavating the
tomb of Casimir IV in 1970s Cracow, Poland.
The work was commissioned by Kent Opera
in Ashford, England. SarasotaYouth Opera first
performed it in 1999.
Sarasota Youth Opera productions are
professionally staged, directed, costumed, and
performed with orchestra.
Martha Collins will direct "The Black Spider."
She previously directed "Giovanna d'Arco" in
Sarasota Opera's 2010 Winter Festival season
and "La traviata" during the Opera's Fall 2009


season. Collins has also directed Sarasota Youth
Opera productions of "The Hobbit" and "The
Second Hurricane."
Sets are designed by Lino Toyos, with
costumes by B.G. FitzGerald, and lighting by
Sarasota Opera's resident lighting designer Ken
Yunker. Maestro Lance Inouye will conduct the
orchestra.The work will be sung in English.
Tickets are $20 for adults; $15 for students;
and $50 for a family-pack that includes up to two
adults and four students. Visit the Box Office,
61 N. Pineapple Ave., Sarasota, in the Pavilion


Building adjacent to the Opera House; by calling
941-366-8450, ext. 1, or online at
www.sarasotaopera.org.

About Sarasota Youth Opera
Established in 1984, Sarasota Youth Opera
was one of the first programs of its kind in
America. The choruses include three groups of
young people, age 8 -18. The Preparatory Chorus
works to improve skills and prepare students for
one of the two advanced choruses (the Treble
Chorus and the Mixed Voice Chorus).

When Kuykendall is not busy having his picture taken, or taking pictures, he is busy
serving and often pulls double shifts. "But I love it," he says.


BY SHARE DERRICKSON
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Steve Kuykendall, a server at the White
Elephant Pub in Englewood, looks
much younger than his 31 years. He
is, as many repeat customers say, a favorite
server. Kim Barbara and her gal pals
return to Englewood Beach every year
for vacation. "We love coming here and
having our Mai Thais and our Rum Run-
ners and lunch," she said. "We always
sit in Steve's section. "We just love
Steve."
Kuykendall brings the group of ladies
their check, they ask to have their pic-
ture taken with Steve. All agree that outside
of his serving ability, his personal nature,
his fine sense of humor, Kuykendall is full of
"boyish charm."
The Maine native moved to Florida in 2005.
"I came here, ironically, to do seasonal work
at the Pink Elephant in Boca Grande," he said.
"And here I am, working at the White Elephant


in Englewood."
He and his fiance, Jenessa Lake, both
work for the pub. "We get to spend some time
together," he said. That is good because Kuyk-
endall often pulls many double shifts at the
pub. "I just love it. We keep it light here. People
are on vacation and you have to stay positive.
"You have to be able to talk to people," he
said, adding that his affinity for wearing Red
Sox hats and shirts is often an ice breaker. "Even
with Yankee fans," he laughed. "Sometimes, we
have great conversations where we spar back
and forth.TheYankee fans like that," he said.
While he said he is not sure what he wants
to be when he "grows up," he is enjoying his
chosen profession. "If you like what you do
and come in with a good attitude, good things
will happen."
The White Elephant is located at 1855 Gulf
Blvd., Englewood and can be reached by call-
ing 941-475-6801.

mined to stay out of jail long enough to
crack the case. And she must be getting
close, because now someone is trying

James "Rhodey" Rhodes (Don Cheadle)
at his side, Tony forges new alliances
and confronts powerful new forces.

chanting motion picture.

It may be in a remote area on Alligator Creek
in Punta Gorda, but everybody knows where
Riviera Oyster Bar is. The sign on the corner of
U.S. 41 and Rio Villa leads the way.
The seafood restaurant on 5500 Deltona

50 years. It started as a fish camp and evolved
from there, according to Rowlyn Eckert, who
with her husband Bill has owned it for six years.
"Someone decided to put picnic tables in
for the campers, then they built a kitchen and
started to sell food, then they added onto the
building for open-air dining..." Eckert said.
"Continued renovations made it what it is now."
What it is now is the oldest riverfront
restaurant in Punta Gorda. It may not be on a
main road, but main roads don't treat you to
manatee, osprey, dolphins and jumping mullet
on mile marker 28.
Many have driven, boated and even kay-
aked their way to Riviera for the more than 100
offerings on the menu. And with the different
flavors fused with your choice of fish, the pos-
sibilities are infinite.
Also, Riviera is not confined to seafood.
"We have a mix of seafood, Italian, Cajun
and creole," Eckert said. "Bill changes the menu
often to introduce other flavors."
Riviera Oyster Bar features many specials.
Among them are the all-you-can-eat specials
with grouper, chicken and catfish fingers, and
gulf and butterfly shrimp for $13.95.
Another of its signature dishes is the Fisher-
man's Feast for one or for two, with lobster,
shrimp, scallops, clams and frog's legs.You
may have to ask for a doggy bag.
You can start your dining experience with shrimp
cocktail, hot poppers, buffalo shrimp, gator or oys-
ters, and the Riviera's own crab cakes.
To finish, there is chocolate malted caramel
pie and caramel apple dumplings with ice
cream, among other items, for $4.95.
They also feature a full bar with early bird
and happy hour specials such as 99 cent drafts


and $3.95 margaritas.
But the biggest draw is the view, inside and
out.
"If you're ever stressed, just watch the water.
It's pretty," Eckert said.
You can also watch the walls, which feature
painted murals of the landscape around Alliga-
tor Creek.
Riviera Oyster Bar opens Wednesday to
Friday at 4:30 p.m. and has its last seating at
8:30 p.m. They open Saturday and Sunday at
11:30 a.m., with final seating at 8:30 p.m. on
Saturday and 7:30 p.m. on Sunday. It is closed
Monday and Tuesday.
If traveling by boat, it is on Alligator Creek
near mile marker 28, just off Charlotte Harbor.

May 5-11, 2010 E/N/C/V


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
The Players closed its 2009/2010 season with
a happening so exciting that it was extended
through May 8.
Mostly middle-aged, the Friday night audience at
the rock opera, "The Who's Tommy" was swaying and
to the music and totally wrapped up in the story of
the "deaf, dumb and blind kid who sure plays a mean
pinball."
When Tommy's father, who was presumed dead
in the war, came home to find his wife in the arms
of another, an altercation ensues that results in
the lover's death. The event so traumatizes Tommy
that he becomes deaf, blind and mute. His parents
search for a cure -- to no avail -- while Tommy stands
before a mirror he cannot see. But he can feel.That
sense allows him to become a pinball wizard and
also to deal with those who would be less than
friends because he is different.


chased by calling 941-474-7884 or visiting the
Suncoast Humane Society office at: Suncoast Hu-
mane Society, 6781 San Casa Drive, Englewood.
The Pet Pantry Program was developed by
Suncoast Humane Society with the local Meals on
Wheels, Suncoast Worship Center and Engle-
wood Bible Church to offer pet food assistance
to their food pantries so that pet owners will not
be forced to surrender their animals or put their
health at risk due to lack of, or poor nourishment.
Tickets for the game are also available by call-
ing the Stone Crabs at 941-206-HITS (4487) or
visiting www.stonecrabsbasball.com.


The story gave rise to such hit songs as "Pinball
Wizard ""See Me. Feel Me" and so many more songs
than are usually found in any one musical, that is
also is a fine vehicle for showing off the breadth of
talent gathered by director Jeffery Kin for The Players
production.
Super talented Steve and Diane Dawson star
as the parents, with Truett Tomlin as Tommy at 4,
Zachary Lutz as Tommy at 10 and Greg Weigers as
the pinball juggling Tommy at 21 and the narrator.
Scott Vitale, who honed his talent at Venice Theatre
the past several years, was outstanding as Cousin
Kevin and Sheri Nadelman was stunning as the Acid
Queen.
Visually as stunning as its score, The Players produc-
tion is big in every way including its 34-member cast.
The Players is at 838 North Tamiami Trail, Sara-
sota. Tickets are $24 for adults and $12 for students.
