Council confirms



no mill increase


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

There was little to debate
Tuesday at the second and final
public hearing on the Venice
city budget as council voted
unanimously to hold the line
on a mill increase.
It's the third year running the
millage rate has not increased for
taxpayers within the city of Venice.
Mayor Ed Martin said council


had two concerns it wrestled
with: keeping taxes as low as pos-
sible, and reducing the amount it
would need to take from reserves
to balance the budget.
"What came out was, be-
cause things are so tough
economically, and we had done
a reasonable amount of cutting
costs, the city could afford to
go another year" living off the
reserves before services are
impacted.


"If we hadn't already raised
utility rates, we probably would
have raised taxes," Martin said.
He noted the number of city
employees has fallen from its
peak of just over 400 to just
over 300 this year, while the
city has lost $5 million in city
revenue over the past three
years due to dropping property
values. Council was able to cut

Quality of life remains best-kept secret


By CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER
A majority of Sarasota
County residents perceive
their quality of life in the
county as either "good" or
"excellent," according to
the annual citizens survey
released last week. However,
that "good-life" quality is the
Sarasota County's best-kept
secret, according to members
of the tourism industry.
The two issues resident
perception and the area's
name recognition dove-
tailed last week. On Wednes-
day, county commissioners
received the results of the
annual 2010 Citizen Opinion
Survey. A day later, the Tourist
Development Council voted
9-0 to recommend that some
of the final half-penny of bed
tax levy be earmarked for
marketing and promotion.


Quality of life is just one of
the topics addressed by the
annual citizens survey, now
in its 19th year. Other topics
include the most important
issue facing the county, a
focus on neighborhoods, the
local economy and county
government.
Eight hundred respondents
18 years old and older an-
swered questions posed in a
random telephone survey by
Susan Schuler & Associates
Inc., taken from June 22 to
July 11. Of respondents, 99
percent are year-round resi-
dents, mostly retirees, whose
home location is almost
evenly split between city and
unincorporated county. The
margin of error is plus/minus
3.5 percent.
The project was led by
Susan A. MacManus of the
University of South Florida-
Tampa and her undergradu-


ate students.
Despite the current econo-
my and lack of jobs ranked
the No. 1 issue this year -
nine of 10 residents say their
quality of life is good or excel-
lent (45 percent each). In ad-
dition, 47 percent of residents
say the quality of life in their
neighborhoods is excellent,
and 42 percent say it is good.
In assessing change within
their neighborhood, 68 per-
cent say the overall physical
conditions of houses and
lawns have stayed the same.
Seventy-seven percent also
say the number of small busi-
nesses in their area has stayed
the same, with 64 percent say-
ing their physical condition
has remained the same.
On a demographic note, re-
spondents say the income level
(53 percent), age makeup (68)

More kids qualify for lunch programs


By ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER
The number of county
students receiving free or
reduced-price lunches in-
creased slightly from last year,
by just less than 3 percent,
according to numbers released
by the Sarasota County School
District.
In October 2009, 18,253, or
44.43 percent, of students took
advantage of free or reduced-


price lunches. This year, 47.21
percent, or 19,239 students out
of 40,753 enrolled are doing so.
The federal formula for free
or reduced-price lunch speci-
fies that a student from a four-
person family with an annual
income less than $28,665 is
eligible for free lunch.
Beverly Girard, director of
Food and Nutrition Services for
the Sarasota school district, is
happy the county's numbers


didn't jump drastically
"I think our major in
was a year and a half tc
years ago," she said. "It
creasing, and we're still
applications every day,
really pleased it's not h
have to say that ours w
gradual, but as recent
and a half years ago, it
33 percent."


Pilots anxiously await Federal Aviation Administration funding to renovate
runway 4-22 at Venice Municipal Airport.


FAA: Funding will


come


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
When Venice City Council fi-
nally agreed upon an airport lay-
out plan to send to the Federal
Aviation Administration, Mayor
Ed Martin wasted no time asking
the feds if they would consider
expediting funding to renovate
4-22, the preferred noise abate-
ment runway.
Concerned the city's pro-
longed fight with the FAA
over various issues could take
years to mend, Martin penned
his July 29 request to receive
Airport Improvement Program
funding sooner than later in a
conciliatory tone.
The FAA's Southern Regional
Administrator Douglas Murphy
responded this month saying
he understands the community
wants to move forward with
the project as soon as possible;
"however, there are several
regulatory requirements the
FAA must follow."
They include:
Sending an updated airport
layout plan to the Orlando Air-
port District Office for the FAA
to review and approve.
Adding the rehabilitation
of runway 4-22 formally to the
Florida Joint Automated Capi-
tal Improvement Program list.
Then discussing with the
Orlando ADO what parts of the
project are eligible and justified.
Considering environmental
impacts and sending docu-
mentation to the Orlando ADO
to make an environmental
finding
Designing the runway reha-
bilitation project.
Finally, submitting a grant
application for funding consider-
ation and project construction.
Insiders say it's looking more
like a two-year delay is in store
unless the city makes airport
funding a priority.
Not everyone was excited
about the news that city
council completed its review


... in time


of the ALP Despite a conversa-
tion by city council last week
explaining the ALP has already
been submitted to the FAA,
Council Member Sue Lang still
claims only parts of the ALP
were properly ap-
proved by council
and said it should
have come back
before that body
prior to being
submitted to the
FAA.
It doesn't ap-
pear the other MARTIN
council members
have the same understanding.
"My understanding is the
FAA does not have to approve
the full master plan, but they
do approve the
ALP" said Martin
last week. "If there
are parts (of the
ALP) that require
changes, those
will come back to
the council. The
important thing is
the ALP is submit- LANG
ted to the FAA."
Despite that assurance,
Lang sent an e-mail to City
Manager Isaac Turner "re-
questing that you notify FAA
that we have not yet approved
anything other than that part
of the ALP that addressed
their concerns and recom-
mendations. We never com-
pleted our review of the rest
of the ALP/MPU."
Lang asked Turner for ad-
ditional background materi-
als, saying she would provide
him with more comments and
questions next week for re-
sponse by DY, the city's airport
consultant.
"I expect that we will need to
come to a consensus at a coun-
cil meeting on all of the data,
material, documents and parts
of the ALP/MPU that are not as
yet approved," she wrote.

cost the board $3 million. That
won't be the case however,
since only some classes in the

has been no increase in county
millage rate since fiscal year
2008.
The 3.3384 millage rate
means that for every $100,000
of taxable value, a property

with $289 of that going into
the general fund. The figure
does not include city, Sarasota

Unemployment continues to rise


By JOSH SALMAN
STAFF WRITER

Unemployment across
Southwest Florida rose for the
third consecutive month in
August, reaching its highest
numbers since early spring,
and giving the economy a grim
outlook heading into fall.
DeSoto continues to lead
the way regionally with the top
unemployment at 13.4 per-
cent. That rate represents a 0.3
percentage-point jump from
July and a 1.5 percentage-point
increase from August 2009,
according to figures released
Friday by the Agency for Work-
force Innovation, the state's
labor department.
Charlotte saw its unem-
ployment rise 0.4 percentage
points from July to reach a 13
percent August rate. A year
ago, 12.3 percent of the coun-
ty's work force was jobless.
Sarasota reported a 12.3
percent unemployment rate,
up 0.4 percentage points from
July and 0.7 percentage points
from the same time last year,
according to the labor depart-
ment.

After starting the year with
several months of declines,
unemployment in all three
counties now has reached its
highest point since March.
Economists attribute the re-
cent climb to the summer slow
season and a lackluster hous-
ing market, coupled with the
already dreary job market.
"I really believe we are in for
the long haul and haven't hit
rock bottom yet," said Frank
BovO, economics professor
at Edison State College. "It all
boils down to industry and
where the jobs are, and right
now, there's just not enough to
go around."
Bov6 said the area job mar-
ket is likely much worse than
the numbers show because
they don't include job seek-
ers who have given up or the
unemployed who are no longer


collecting checks. He believes
the housing market will have
to fully rebound before job
creation picks up, which he
predicts could take three or
four years.
The Sarasota metropolitan
statistical area was one of the
few in the state to gain jobs
in August, adding 1,100 new
positions, according to the
labor department. But more
than 31,500 residents be-
tween Charlotte, Sarasota and
DeSoto remain unemployed
out of a labor force of about
250,000.
"When unemployment is
this high, everything is affect-
ed," BovO said. "People aren't
spending money, the housing
industry will continue going
downhill and the dollar will
begin to erode in value."
Seasonally adjusted unem-


ployment also rose 0.2 per-
centage points statewide in
August to 11.7 percent. Florida
lost 16,000 nonagricultural
positions last month driven
largely by losses in construc-
tion, financing and census
jobs. From the economy's
peak, the construction indus-
try now has lost about half of
its total workforce, according
to Friday's release.
Florida's unemployment
remains above the nation's 9.6
percent average, with the third
highest rate in the country,
according to the labor de-
partment's chief economist,
Rebecca Rust. Hendry County
had the highest jobless rate in
the state at 20.6 percent. Lib-
erty County, in the Panhandle,
had the lowest at 7.5 percent.
More than 1 million Florid-
ians are out of work, keeping
the job market at its most de-
pressed state since the reces-
sion of the 1970s.
"The momentum has been
lost over the last couple of
months," Rust said in a confer-
ence call with state media
Friday. "One of the reasons the
unemployment rate increased


is those who have given up
hope re-entered the market,
which is a characteristic of the
economy when it's at a turn-
ing point or there are mixed
signals."
Rust predicts Florida's unem-
ployment rate would be closer
to 20 percent if all discouraged
workers were included.
She attributes the recent up-
tick to frugal consumer spend-
ing, tight credit conditions, a
sputtering housing market and
expiring stimulus projects.
"Households are cautious in
terms of spending and some of
that is forced on them," Rust
said. "At the same time, busi-
nesses are cautious and hold-
ing back on hiring. Those two
trends reinforce each other."
Florida Gov. Charlie Crist
launched a program last week
aimed at connecting veterans
with job opportunities that
match their experience gained
during service. Crist, along
with federal lawmakers, also
extended two unemployment
benefit programs in July that
had expired earlier this year.

Pain clinic moratorium extended


By CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

The Sarasota County Commission ex-
tended the expiration date of the pain
management clinic moratorium Sept.
14 in order to address a problem on the
state level.
The state Legislature had taken steps
to stop the shady trade in prescrip-
tion drugs by doctor's offices, clinics or
health-care facilities with a pair of laws
that were to take effect this year. The
Prescription Drug Monitoring Program,
created in 2009, will establish a data-
base enabling practitioners to learn of
doctor-shopping practices by patients.
However, a protest was lodged after
the state awarded a contract for the
database system, according to Brooke
Baker of the county Behavioral Health
Strategic Planning Work Group in
Sarasota. At the earliest, the protest is
expected to be decided in the spring,


delaying a program that was supposed
to go into effect by Dec. 1.
For that reason, commissioners voted
5-0 during their meeting at the Robert
L. Anderson Administration Center
in Venice to approve an ordinance
amending their original pain man-
agement clinic measure. The change
would have the moratorium end when
two conditions are met. The first condi-
tion requires new standards adopted by
the boards of Medicine and Osteopath-
ic Medicine to be in effect for those
who practice in privately owned clinics.
The second requires "establishment,
implementation and adequate fund-
ing" of the state monitoring program to
be in effect.
Two of the three original sunsetting
conditions still apply. The moratorium
will expire one year from the date the
ordinance goes into effect or if the
county commission adopts a new ordi-
nance to deal with illegal drug use and


distribution regarding pain manage-
ment clinics that dispense narcotic
drugs on-site.
The funding requirement is an out-
growth of the fact the state Legislature
did not set up a funding source for the
monitoring program. Operational costs
are to come from the nonprofit Florida
PDMP Foundation Inc.
Baker told commissioners the foun-
dation has raised $500,000, enough to
run the program for a year. However,
another $350,000 is needed to take the
program into July 2012.
The second action by the state toward
the prescription-drug problem is legisla-
tion that combines the mandate of the
new practitioner standards with the
mandate that pain management centers
register with the state. The combined
legislation is to take effect Oct. 1.
Key components of the pain manage-
ment clinic law include the require-
ment that the clinics be owned fully by


a state-licensed medical or osteopathic
medical physician or a group of such
physicians; that only a 72-hour supply
of controlled substances may be given
to clients paying with cash, a check or
a credit card; and that criminal and
disciplinary penalties would be handed
out for violations.
Clients who receive the 72-hour sup-
ply of medicine would be given a pre-
scription for doses for 30, 60 or 90 days.
After medicine is dispensed, doc-
tors and pharmacies have 15 days to
register the transaction. To qualify for
federal grant funds, Baker said, the
state would have to reduce the time to
seven days.
"The hope would be that doctors and
pharmacies (would be educated) on
the importance of registering data in
the database as soon (as possible) after
dispensing medication," Baker said, so
that the 15-day window can be closed.

I POLICE BEAT
Jail earns high marks
Sarasota County Sheriff Tom
Knight has announced that the
Sarasota County Jail earned high
marks during its annual Florida
Model Jail Standards Inspection.
On Aug. 20, certified jail inspec-
tors combed through all aspects
of the facility, including housing,
food services, booking and medi-
cal services.
In a report just received by
Knight, inspectors gave the Sara-
sota County Jail a score of 100
percent. Evaluators commented
on the professionalism and knowl-
edge of jail staff as well as the
sanitary conditions and cleanli-
ness throughout the facility.
"The Sarasota County Jail is con-
sistently found to be exemplary in
peer reviews and by counterparts
from other facilities," said Knight
in a press release. "That speaks
volumes about the dedication of
the jail command staff, and sworn
and civilian employees."

Joan L. McCusker
Joan Louise Gross Mc-
Cusker, 86, died Sunday
morning, Sept. 5, 2010,


at Duke
Hospital in
Durham,
N.C., after a
brief illness.
Joan is
survived
by her


" husband,
Paul Donald; her daugh-
ters, Karen McCusker
(Chevry, France) and
Mary McLoughney of
Chapel Hill; and her son,
Paul Alexander McCusker
(Maconnex, France).
She was predeceased
by her youngest son, Ian
Francis McCusker, who
died on Sept. 13, 1985.
Joan leaves five grand-
children, Claire Mc-
Cusker, Tessa and Rory
McLoughney, and Daniel
and Samuel McCusker
Alvarez; and two step-


grandchildren, Daragh
and Niamh McLoughney
of Dublin, Ireland.
Joan was born July 22,
1924, in Denver, Colo.,
the youngest of three
daughters of Frances
Morris Gross and Eli
Mann Gross, who was
a labor union organizer
on behalf of coal-miners
and went on to become
commissioner of parks
for the city and county of
Denver and later gen-
eral manager of Elitches
Gardens.
Joan graduated from
East Denver High School
and went on to finish Phi
Beta Kappa at Mills Col-
lege in Oakland, Calif.,
in three years with a
degree in botany in 1945.
Following graduation,
she worked at the U.S.
Embassy in Mexico City
and in Germany. In 1948
she married Paul Donald

while her daughter, Mary,
lived there with her fam-
ily, in particular spending
time there to help care
for Mary and her children
while Mary was ill in

friends and was known
for her boundless energy
and charm, her extraordi-
nary intellectual curiosity
and her unending gener-
osity of spirit.

SECRET: Majority of Sarasota County residents rate quality of life good or excellent

and racial/ethnic (53)
makeup of their neigh-
borhood has stayed the
same.
So visitors who regu-
larly come to Sarasota
County for the beaches,
baseball, arts or eco-
tourism and like the
status quo they see may


eventually return to buy
seasonal or year-round
homes. However, that
won't happen, say those
involved with the tour-
ism industry, if Sarasota
remains an unknown
quantity.
It is for that reason the
Tourist Development
Council voted Thursday
to recommend a sce-


nario that would equally
divide the last half-cent
of the bed tax, officially
known as the Tourist De-
velopment Tax, between
marketing/promotion
and the Aquatic Nature
Center at Benderson
Park, located off Univer-
sity Parkway in North
County. The money for
the ANC will be used


primarily for the three-
phase development of a
world-class rowing facil-
ity that is expected to
cost between $25.5 mil-
lion and |$29.5 million.
Currently, the TDT
brings in revenues of
$2.4 million per penny.
The county, following
state law, is allowed to
levy up to 5 cents of bed


tax and in May, started
to collect 4.5 percent in
bed taxes.
If the recommenda-
tion is approved by the
county commission,
it could deal a blow to
North Port. Currently,
the city plans to improve
baseball fields and build
a swimming pool at But-
ler Park and construct a


multisport facility. The
Nov. 2 ballot includes
a referendum for a $22
million water park.
Since each project is
an attempt at attracting
tourists to the city, each
could have benefitted
from activities/attrac-
tion revenue.

STAKE: Class-size amendment could cost thousands for one extra student in a class


FROM PAGE 1

class in lieu of having planning
time, using a portion of the
recently approved referendum
funds to pay teachers beyond
the amount provided by the
state and looking into sched-
ule modification at the high
school level.
"In some places, we have
allowed schools to exceed cap
sizes and we will pay the pen-
alty," White said.
Board Member Carol Todd
said that in places where
the class size is exceeded, it
wouldn't be by much.
"We're not exceeding by 10,
20 or 30 students; it will be one
or two," she said.
White said there are some spe-
cial situations, especially at the


high school level, that make larger
classes a necessity, including
some honors classes or courses
that students can only take dur-
ing a certain period of the day.
White said that student needs are
"absolutely" being met.
Weidener said the district
will receive close to $46 million
from the state to help fund the
class-size amendment, but
that it is "still not enough."
Board Chair Shirley Brown said
that fulfilling the class-size re-
quirements is taking 593 teachers
and $48 million. About $1.5 mil-
lion is coming from referendum
funds to augment state funds.
Most of those 593 teachers have
been added at the elementary
school level, according to Board
Member Caroline Zucker.


"We're hurting kids in other ways by

doing this and won't be able to offer them

some of the speciality classes they need."

School board member Caroline Zucker


Before the meeting, Zucker
said she originally voted for
the class-size amendment, but
would vote against it now be-
cause it places such a hardship
on the district.
"We're in different times,
and we just cannot afford this,"
she said. "We're hurting kids in
other ways by doing this and
won't be able to offer them
some of the speciality classes
they need. Take, say journalism,
as an example. If you only have


12 kids sign up, we can't offer it.
"I guess we just have to
move forward and see what
happens. I was at the Florida
School Board Association
meeting last week, and they
were deciding whether to join
a lawsuit (fighting the amend-
ment). The question is not
whether to sue or not to sue,
but when to sue, but we will
wait until after the referen-
dum. They're mandating we do
this, but they're not telling us


how to fund it."
The legislation originally
passed in 2002, and class-
size amendments have been
phased in since then.
"It started as a district aver-
age," said White. "And now we
have no choice but to take it to
the class-by-class level."
A circuit court judge ruled
last week that Amendment 8
will be on the ballot in Novem-
ber. If it passes, class-size limits
would be based on average. It
would allow three more students
per class in grades kindergar-
ten though third and five more
in higher grades, thus giving
schools a bit more flexibility.

Lumber yard makes way for big toy storage


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINESS EDITOR
"It is no longer the eyesore of
Venice," said Brian McMurphy,
who is opening quality- and
service-oriented Big Toy Stor-
age Center, 100 Center Road,
on Oct. 1, subject to county
approval.
Last December he acquired
the former Cox Lumber Co.,
which closed in October 2007.
Working with all local compa-
nies, he has undertaken an in-
credible transformation of the
almost derelict properties built
in 1978 to a modern, appealing
storage center.
The whole focus will be on
storage, offering more than
14,000 square feet of indoor,
sun-protected space capable
of holding 24 units of different
lengths. Additional covered
storage is suitable for 33 units
and outdoor storage is avail-
able for a further 30 units.
All the buildings take any
height, and he is offering
monthly minimum facilities
for short-term and permanent
storage of coaches, motor
homes, recreational vehicles,


smaller boats, motorcycles and
classic cars.
McMurphy is providing a
special lounge with facilities
where customers can relax and
enjoy coffee. One of the nicest
storage facilities around, this
customer-oriented business
will have access 24/7 with an
automatic powered gate.
An onsite office will operate
8 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through
Saturday. He is looking to hire
a small number of people to
operate the facility.
The 3 12-acre secure site
with 50,000 square feet of
buildings provides a lot of
open space for easy maneu-
verability. He has installed
state-of-the-art energy-
efficient LED lights, security
cameras and a 6-foot privacy
fence. All storage customers
will have keypad entry.
"If it can go down the road
legally, we can accommodate it
in here," said McMurphy.
He lives in Nokomis and
owns Brian's Auto Co., 707
South Tamiami Trail, Osprey,
which he opened in 1989.

The Study Center marks 15 years of operation


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST
Operating a business in
tough economic times is not
easy, but Lynn Reifert, owner
and director of The Study
Center, has adapted to meet
changing needs and recently
celebrated her 15th anniver-
sary. A small school serving
students with special needs, it
assists students from pre-
school through adult.
Located in the Southbridge
Center at 1501 South Tamiami
Trail, Suite 501, the full-day
school accepts the John McKay


scholarship and provides edu-
cational testing and tutoring. It
has adapted services recently to
meet increased demand from
parents of those who fear or
have suffered bullying.
Parents prefer the small
school's benefits, particu-
larly for students with special
needs. Reifert said the state
voucher program helps par-
ents with tuition, assuming
they meet specific require-
ments.
Because the school is small,
Reifert designs curricula
around her students' interests,
focusing on their education


goals and pointing them in
a specific direction. With the
recent outflow of students
to other states, Reifert has
designed courses not only for
children and teenagers, but
also to assist adults in obtain-
ing new careers.
Following the Sarasota
County Schools calendar, The
Study Center is open 9 a.m.-2
p.m. weekdays, but also pro-
vides after-hours coaching by
appointment. It remains open
during the summer months
for testing and tutoring, and
for enrolling students for the
upcoming school year.


Two teachers have been with
Reifert for six years. Christine
Robinson works with high
school kids and Patricia King
works with elementary and
middle school students. A pri-
vate school with tuition fees,
The Study Center prepares
students for the GED diploma.
Basic skills taught include
math, reading, social studies,
science, language arts, cur-
rent events, history and visual
media, and for weekly physical
education, students are taken
to the South County Family
YMCA. Lunch, brought by stu-
dents, is eaten on the school


premises.
Reifert graduated in Musca-
tine, Iowa, with a Bachelor of
Science degree in special edu-
cation. She started a program
for preschool deaf children at a
therapy center in Sedalia, Mo.
Sixteen years ago she came to
Englewood, where she taught
children with learning disabili-
ties for a year.
She started The Study Center
in the Ark Plaza in 1995 with
partner Nancy Clarke, who
five years later moved away,
then returned to public school
teaching. In 2001, the school
moved to its current location.


$20 buys anything in this store


A family-operated business
opens Oct. 1 with everything
priced at less than $20.
Owner Stacy Gilbert of Dal-
las, Ga., offers accessories at
Simple Elegance Under $20,
137W. Venice Ave., in the for-
mer Islander location.
Managing the store is her
mom, Patty Blackledge, of
Columbus, Ohio, who for 17
years owned a hair salon until
retiring to Punta Gorda.
Accessories will include
watches, necklaces, bracelets,
rings, scarves and cover-ups,
with sun dresses, handbags
and wallets. Primarily, the
store will cater to women but
there will be sections for kids
and men.
"We're very excited to be a
part of Venice and can see a
lot of good happening down-
town," said Gilbert.
A music teacher from
Columbus, for nine years
she taught flute at elemen-


tary and high schools, subse-
quently moving to schools in
other states where she tutored
middle school bands.
The store opens at 10 a.m.
six days a week. Call 412-4177.

Cassariano's new look
The old bistro look is gone,
said Luca Cassani, who with
partner Antonio Pariano has
made spectacular changes to
their downtown restaurant co-
inciding with the new exterior
upgrading.
Four years ago they intro-
duced residents and visitors
to their special Italian cuisine,
opening Cassariano, 305-B W
Venice Ave. Now they have a
new, authentic Italian interior
with walls of earth tones and
bricks, creating an inviting
and warm atmosphere. The
bar has moved to the rear and,
combined with new tables and
chairs, they have added four
additional seats. Wine racks
hang from the ceiling, and
new lighting adds to the new
theme.
"We have kept the same
menu and same prices, add-
ing the fabulous, very typical
Northern Italian pork filet over
polenta," said Cassani. He and
Pariano continue as chefs, and
they have added three servers


to their existing team.
Diners will enjoy improved
seating, increased to 36 places
outside on the terrace under
the new, long awning.
Lunch and dinner are
served daily from 11 a.m. to 9
p.m., later on Saturday. Cas-
sariano is closed Sundays. Call
485-0507.

Brides gone
A local landmark store
believed to have served the
Venice community for 20 years
has closed.
The 4,000-square-foot loca-
tion of Brides of Venice, 1846
South Tamiami Trail, is empty.
It was acquired in April 2007
by Susan Greiger, who had
operated a similar store in
Lakeland.

Auto-glass repairs
A mobile auto-glass repair
service has been started by
Jean Paul Poirier.
A Clear Lite Autoglass,
West Douglas Court, caters to
vehicle users requiring repair
and replacement of all vehicle
windows.
Poirier specializes in rock
chip repairs. Air in the break
is extracted and resin injected,
sealing it to remove trapped


air, thereby avoiding the glass
cracking. Most vehicle insur-
ance covers Florida drivers,
making the service free to
most customers.
Originally from Canada,
he moved to New Brunswick,
Calif., then Leominster, Mass.,
where he undertook training
to obtain NGA certification.
He was an auto-glass repair
and replacement technician
for four years before coming to
Venice in 2006. With his wife,
Viktoria, he started a weekly
pool cleaning service. In 2008
he returned to auto-glass
repair with a local company,
and recently he decided to
open his own business serving
Sarasota, Manatee and Char-
lotte counties.
Business hours are 8 a.m.-5
p.m. Monday through Satur-
day. Call 416-0270.

Publicity kiosk
Venice MainStreet Inc. is
preparing for the November
opening of its Centennial Park
publicity kiosk on West Venice
Avenue.
Its Downtowners team of
volunteers will operate the
venture, sorting through fliers
and directing tourists to the
unique shops and restaurants.
The kiosk will be open


Tuesday through Saturday.
Volunteers interested in work-
ing the kiosk can call Venice
MainStreet at 484-6722.

County still overseeing North Port pools


By CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER
Sarasota County commissioners
agreed last week to continue to oversee
North Port's pool maintenance contract
for another five years.
Through an interlocal agreement
with the city, the county is in charge of
budgeting the pool operation costs. The
county subcontracted those services
to the Charlotte County YMCA, which
oversees the North Port area. On Sept.
14, county commissioners voted 5-0 to
pay $150,000 to the YMCA to operate
the pool and $10,000 to run the former
Al Goll Hall, which was converted by
the Y into a fitness center. The funds


are intended to help defray operational
costs of the center at 5930 Sam Shapos
Way.
The YMCA has been managing both
facilities since 2005; this is the first
contract renewal for each. Funding will
come from the Community Services/
Parks and Recreation portion of the
proposed fiscal year 2011 budget.
The YMCA agreed to split costs for
the repair or replacement of the pool
deck and the associated plumbing with
the county and city, capping each share
at $30,000. The city will pay the full
cost initially and be reimbursed by the
county and YMCA at the completion of
the project.


Among its responsibilities, the YMCA
will provide qualified staff and life-
guards, collect membership and usage
fees and maintain the equipment. The
YMCA also is responsible for utility bills,
including water and sewer, trash pickup
and recycling, as well as routine house-
keeping and maintenance supplies.
At Al Goll Hall, the YMCAs responsi-
bilities also include providing qualified
staff, collection of fees and mainte-
nance of facilities.
The county commission also ap-
proved an interlocal agreement with
North Port for fire and emergency
medical services. The mutual-aid agree-
ment had first been adopted between


the county and city in December 2004
and then renewed in March 2006.
In other board action:
Harry B. Hall of North Port was
appointed to the countyWell Drilling
Advisory Board as a licensed well con-
tractor representative, effective through
September 2013.
AWest Coast Inland Navigation Dis-
trict funding request for $21,725 to be
used for the SouthVenice Beach Public

KIDS: County students taking reduced-price or free lunches show slight increase over 2009


FROM PAGE 1


The major reason for the
higher numbers is the state of
the economy, she said.
"People need to be employed,"
Girard said. "Do we eventually
want to see these numbers go
back down? Absolutely. But that
will happen when the economy
improves and people get their
jobs back. I think a lot of families
would prefer not to be on free or
reduced lunch.
"A lot of families are new to
this and didn't even know how
to apply. Then all of a sudden,
one or both parents are unem-
ployed. It's a tragedy."
The benefits of the free or
reduced-price lunch, Girard
said, are numerous. Families
on a limited budget often
can't afford to buy healthy
food, including fruits and


vegetables.
"And you can't do well in
school when you're hungry.
Our program really is a safety
net for the economy," she said.
Emma E. Booker and Alta
Vista elementary schools, in
Sarasota, have the highest per-
centage of students on the free
or reduced-price lunch pro-
gram, both with more than 90
percent receiving the service.
Seeing the number of stu-
dents on the free or reduced-
price lunch program decrease
would be wonderful, Girard
said, because that would mean
people are employed again. But
until that happens, the school
district will provide the service.
"Do we want to see the num-
bers escalate? No. But do we
want to see the kids succeed?
Absolutely," she said.

MILL: Venice City Council votes unamiously to keep millage rate at current rate


FROM PAGE 1


nearly $2 million, but had to make up
the difference from reserves.
The lack of debate Tuesday evening
had more to do with confusion over
whether or not council could actually
change the millage rate at this point in
time. Council voted in August to adopt
a higher preliminary millage rate for
discussion purposes.
On Sept. 14 they adopted a lower tenta-


tive rate of 2.7790 mills, and .225 mills for
voted debt service, the current rate. The
vote was split with Sue Lang and Ernie
Zavodnyik, John Moore and Jim Bennett
voting for no increase. Emilio Carlesimo,
Mayor Ed Martin and Kit McKeon had
wanted a slight increase to offset the draw
on the city's savings account.
Later, some council members
learned they could not adopt a millage
rate on Tuesday that was higher than
the tentative rate adopted at the first


public hearing, thus ending the debate.
On Tuesday the meeting lasted just 20
minutes with members voting unani-
mously to approve the budget.
The city budget adopted consists
of $22.8 million in general fund dol-
lars raised from taxes, and $70,252,517
when other city funds and state and
federal funds are added. That total
amount includes a $19.4 million water
and sewer budget, $7.5 million in the
airport fund, $5 million for solid waste/


recycling, and $12.6 million in miscel-
laneous funds (including $2.5 million
in One Cent Sales Tax projects and $3.9
million in group life and health costs).
Earlier debate centered around
whether or not the city has enough left
in reserves to leave a safe margin in
case of an emergency. The proposed
budget calls for using $3.5 million of
reserves in 2011. The current reserve
level is $9 million.

Status quo means dirty water


Every part of Florida has its own
story about water and how the
actions (and inactions) of man
have tainted it, rerouted it, pumped it
and taken it for granted.
In South Florida, dikes, canals
and roadways altered the flow of the
Everglades for safety, commercial and
agricultural purposes. Decades later,
after the negative impacts on the River
of Grass and Florida Bay were beyond
dispute, an $11 billion plan to restore
the 'Glades is making slow progress.
The impacts of past Everglades policies
stretched as far as the southern part
of the Charlotte Harbor estuary in the
Caloosahatchee River, which turned
brown from periodic lake discharges.
In Northeast Florida, the St. John's
River was so polluted by the region's
powerful paper mill interests, Jack-
sonville became famous for its stench.
That multibillion dollar cleanup also
is ongoing. To the south, the Indian
River Lagoon is getting its own $1.2
billion makeover. Panhandle beach


communities already hurt by the
recession are reeling from the ongoing
impacts of the BP oil spill.
In Central Florida, pumping for
mining, agricultural and residential
uses depleted underground aquifers
till historic springs ran dry. Pollu-
tion befouled lakes until the fish in
them were inedible. A nearly $1.7
billion water supply project being
undertaken by the Southwest Florida
Water Management District includes
restoring Lake Hancock in Polk
County and rerouting parts of the
Peace River around sink holes created
by overpumping the aquifer.
A 2007 study stated the Peace
River lost 136,000 acres of wetlands
and 343 miles of streams since the
1940s. Downstream Charlotte Harbor
and Lemon Bay have been deemed
"impaired" waterways due to resi-
dential, commercial and agricultural
impacts.
The dollar signs above don't begin
to reflect the total cost of fixing the


problems Floridians and their leaders
have allowed to happen since the
state's population began booming
in the 1920s and hit 18.5 million last
year. Yet, a consortium of business
interests led by Associated Industries
and the Florida Cattlemen's Associa-
tion (and including the Peace River
Citrus Growers Association here in our
area), would have you believe the real
thing to fear is the cost of complying
with the federal Clean Water Act,
which a University of Florida Institute
of Food and Agricultural Sciences
study compliantly pegged at more
than $1 billion a year.
They were among 36 groups signing
a letter to the state's congressional
delegation last week calling on them
to block the Oct. 15 implementation
of the new water quality standards.
With undeniable evidence of point-
source pollution from coast to coast,
from Key West to the Panhandle, it's
predictable that developers, utili-
ties, farmers and ranchers, mining


companies and manufacturers would
like to maintain the status quo. It's
also predictable that such interests
would march out the bogeyman of
higher water bills and consumer costs
to convince people it's wrong to slow
down the rate of pollution.
One rigged survey by Mason-Dixon
asked respondents if they would
oppose the EPAs water quality stan-
dards if the regulations resulted in
a $700 increase in their water bills.
We wonder if the 39 percent who
answered "no" or "I don't know" would
have changed their minds if Mason-
Dixon skewed the question even more
to ask how they would feel if the EPA
rules killed their grandmothers?
We know keeping our water clean
is going to cost money because
polluting it was easier and cheaper
than protecting it. What clean water
opponents want you to disregard is
the fact that cleaning it up costs even
more. That's what Floridians should
really be afraid of.


How we got here


We had a letter to the editor in
our paper the other day the gist
of which was that the "growth
gang" is back in full control at
city council. We have almost 40
days before the election and the
voters are already lining up for
more growth or slow growth.
After the past few years, I
don't think you can have much
more of a slowdown. I think
"stoppage" would be a better
word. But if you look carefully,
you can just see the those new
commissioners-to-be rubbing
their hands in glee as they start
the planning for a new theme
park on the island, or bill-
boards down Harbor Drive to
attract more business. At least
that is what it sounds like, if
you listen to some people. OK,
so I exaggerate.
Quite frankly, Venice is a
retirement area, as is the whole
west coast of Florida. For that
matter, the whole state is
dependent on seniors coming
here and retiring here.
We all know that Venice was
begun by a railroad workers
union as the place in the sun
for its members in their retire-
ment years. But guess what?
No area can survive on just
retirees. Sure, you can live in a
gated community composed
of 60-year-olds, but when you
think about it, that isn't going to
work very well as time goes on.
Railroad retirees needed a
place to live, so they had to
bring in carpenters, plumbers
and electricians and more to
make the area habitable. Those
laborers brought children, so
that meant schools had to be
built and recreational facili-
ties followed. Then grandmas
and grandpas came to visit the
grandchildren and guess
what they liked it and de-
cided to move here too.


Grandpa, a man with quite
a bit of energy and skill who
always wanted his own Italian
restaurant, convinced his wife
that the lot on the corner was
a great place to buy, set up the
best pizza store in town and
opened shop. His success at-
tracted many other businesses
to our little town. The busi-
nesses brought more people.
Soon, many other stores
opened in the vicinity of the first
store and before you knew it, we
had a downtown. Then some-
thing really bad happened -
the downtown started spread-
ing farther away from the first
stores. The tentacles of growth
were heading east, west and
south. The once well-planned
and laid-out city was now
spreading by leaps and bounds.
The first people here were
alarmed that their pretty little
city was growing like a weed.
They weren't too concerned,
though, because they knew
soon it would be ugly and other
people would not want to come
and growth would stop.
Actually, quite to the con-
trary, as others came they just
brought more people: grand-
children moved here, uncles
moved here, former neighbors
moved here. And to make it
worse, in-laws moved here.
Then first-rate schools were
built that attracted whole fami-
lies here for a better education
for their children.
Soon it became apparent that
Venice had run amok and that
the growth had to stop. So far,
however, no one has really come
up with a way to stop it. I guess
that as long as it snows up north
and is sunny down here, you are
going to have a tough time.
When should we have tried
to stop the onslaught of new
residents anyway, in the '40s
'50s, '60s, '70s or '80s? Should
we have stopped it with the
person who got in just before
you or the person just after
you? You don't have to answer
that one; it was rhetorical.
I think the no-growth experi-
ment's time has passed. What
do you think?

Local angle. Why does the
Venice Gondolier Sun print
obituaries of people who have
nothing to do with Venice?
There's one in today's paper
that doesn't even mention
Venice. It's an out-of-state
obituary.
Editor's Note: Because we
charge to print obituaries, you
can be sure that the ones that
appear in the paper do have a
Venice connection. It's up to the
family to state what it is, however.
Usually the deceased is a former
resident or has relatives here.
Good and bad. What's right
and what's wrong in Venice?
What's right is when the parks
were worked on through the
years around Sharky's back in
the '90s. Bob Mudge was one
of many people who served
on those parks and recreation
boards. Had to move a sew-
age plant before you could
even start developing that,
moving the sewage plant out
east. That was a feat in itself.
I look at Venice's downtown
with bricks on the sidewalks
and the antique lighting and
a contract with the Corps
of Engineers to renourish
the beaches. Restoring the
railroad depot. There's been a
lot of good things going on in
the city of Venice. Bad things
lately. I've seen roads falling
apart in areas like Bird Bay
and Capri Isles. If it doesn't
have a jet engine or wings on
it, it doesn't get any atten-
tion. We need to start looking
at the older neighborhoods
where the sidewalks don't go
anywhere. A newly dedicated
park no sidewalk leading to
it. All the lawsuits have been
ridiculous. We never had those
types of problems years ago.
The Circus Arena is in bad
shape. These are just some of
the issues.
Backer. I'm an 85-year-old
lady who reads every word of
Emelio Carlesimo's article on
Sept. 11. I agreed with every-
thing he said. I believe he must
be a fine, honest gentleman
and I would like to see him
run for another office later on.


Let 'em


Have It
I would be behind him 100
percent.
Appalled. I read the Let'em
Have It message that said "any
good shark is a dead shark."
He or she applauded it. I am
appalled at your ignorance.
The shark was dead, yes, when
it got there; but we were all
complaining about how it was
mutilated on the beach the
way it was. To be as ignorant
as you are to kill a shark,
you're sick.
Info, please. Your question,
what do you think of the pro-
posed Venetian Walk commu-
nity to replace Grove Terrace?
I'd really like some details on
that because I haven't seen
anything. I don't know where
to go to get anything. If you
could help me with a Web site
or any information, I would be
very grateful.
Break needed. I just went
to the store and can't believe
it. I bought a gallon of milk
for $3.35. I bought orange
juice. For $5, I got a quart of
orange juice and a gallon of
milk. The other dairy prod-
ucts butter, margerine and
cottage cheese they are
all up in price. What is hap-
pening to the dairy market?
Somebody's got a corner and
they are gouging the people


here in Florida. I just can't
believe that milk is $3.35 -
other states, $2. I don't blame
people for not coming back
to Florida. It's a high-priced
place to live and we are one
of the states that needs help
financially. I'm so disap-
pointed. I've lived here for
36 years. I'm an old lady and
those are two items I use and
I need them and I just can't
afford them anymore. The
government should look into
it to see who has a corner on
the market and give the pub-
lic a break.
Gross. I'm calling re: The
campaign to oust teacher
continues. I honestly believe
this lady has done things that
could put other people in jail,
yet she's allowed to be in a
situation with children who
are vulnerable, cannot speak,
cannot defend themselves,
and we pay her salary? This is
absolutely gross. She must be
removed from the system.
Editor's Note: A settlement
that would have allowed
Diana O'Neill to return to the
classroom was rejected Sept.
16 by the state. Her case will
now go to an administrative
hearing.
No kids. Regarding prop-
erty taxes in Venice: A good
percentage of the property
tax for an individual property
owner is the school tax. Now,
I'm 86; why should I have to
pay a school tax? People who
over a certain age and do not
have children in school should
not be part of the school tax.
It should be eliminated from
their tax bill.
Responsibility. Why would
you put your severely handi-
capped child in a school and
expect the teacher to take
responsibility for bringing that
child up to the educational
level? Take responsibility and
take charge of your child. Put
your child in a proper school
and be responsible for him,
not the teachers.
Editor's Note: Florida law
provides for the mainstreaming
of children with disabilities.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS
VPD is stuck now

Editor:
I am new to this area. I have been following the articles
about the Venice Police Department and the problems
with Officer Serianni.
I don't know Officer Serianni or VPD Chief Julie Wil-
liams or anyone else holding aVenice city position. What
I do know from the articles is that Officer Serianni should
have been fired when he would not comply with his
second performance improvement plan. He was not fired
and now the VPD is stuck with him.
The VPD is also going to be stuck with any future of-
ficer who is a performance problem. The next disgruntled
officer will claim discrimination if he is fired because
Serianni was not fired. This second officer might have a
valid discrimination complaint; Serianni does not. The
VPD has had more than one outside consultant review
VPD's management of Serianni and none found support
for his complaints. Now he is trying to extort money with
the threat of a lawsuit.
If the city gives in, Serianni may stay with the VPD
and may ask for more money down the line. As a new
Venice-area taxpayer, I don't want my tax money paid
to a disgruntled employee. I would rather see it spent in
defense of VPD if Serianni's lawsuit goes to trial. He can't
win based on his claims of loss of enjoyment of life, loss
of dignity, embarrassment, humiliation, inconvenience,
mental anguish or other losses listed in his lawsuit. I have
not read about specific VPD actions that support his case.

Circus saviors lauded

Editor:
I've been keeping up to date via Facebook with Save
the Venice Circus Arena's progress in renovating the
Circus Arena. I think it is fantastic that a group of people
have had enough of letting one ofVenice's golden memo-
rabilia rot away, and are trying to save it.
The only memory I possess of the Circus Arena is a
lonely building of what used to be, for I am 17 and too
young to have experienced the glory days of the arena.
I always think of what a shame it is to let such a historic
icon slip away.
My parents, who are Venice natives, always tell me their

stories of the circus, and how the animals unloaded from
the trains and paraded downVenice Avenue. I always wish
to have known of the hypnotic times they describe and

To all the folks working hard to keep the memories of
such an amazing time golden, I say thank you and keep
up the hard work. You can keep the dream alive.

Stop the bleeding

Editor:
We are confused. In what time frame are the county
property appraiser and city council living? In 2010, the
year we are living in, the economy is terrible. Everywhere
in the United States real estate values are dropping, and
as of last week had dropped 30 percent.
We just dropped the value of our home in Bay Indies
$30,000 because the homeowners insurance was to be
$1,600 (without flood insurance). Last month you voted
to increase our water rates because of a mistake by the
city ofVenice and to decrease rates to commercial water
users. Before this vote, our water bill for one month was
more than for six months in our northern city. How can
Venice continue this abuse?
Have any of you visited Bay Indies? It is not Pelican
Pointe orVenice Golf & Country Club. Our population
is made up of hard-working, retired, middle-income
Americans. It is a true retirement community. Have you
forgotten that for the years 2010 and 2011 we have not
and will not be receiving an increase in our Social Secu-
rity, yet have had our Medicare payments increased as
well as our medical insurance? Have any of you had your
lifelong investments swept away in this economy, or are
you too wealthy to miss the money? It feels like you are
bleeding us dry.
My husband and I bought our first home in Bay Indies
in 1984 while we were still working. We are now able to
enjoy this home, and the city ofVenice is doing every-
thing in its power to make us have to leave it.
The median age in Venice is 69. That means you have
a very large population of senior citizens who put a lot of
money into the Venice economy. Please stop for a minute
and think about the people you are representing. Do you
care about them or how your thoughtless decisions are
affecting their lives, or is all about money?
We hope that you give this some real thought before
you submit your vote.

What about the nudists?

Editor:
I read your article regarding the gentleman walking
his dog along the shoreline ofVenice Beach and how a
Mote Marine employee keeps reporting him to the Venice
Police, which then issues him a ticket. It is to my surprise
that a few hundred yards south, between Caspersen
Beach and SouthVenice Beach, I have noticed what
seems to be a new nudist beach.
I did not realize that this had been approved. It has
been about a year since I have walked that area looking
for sharks' teeth. For the past weekends I have walked
that area and have seen three topless women sitting in
lounge chairs under their umbrella without any regard
to anyone around them. Also there were numerous men,
lying on the beach and walking the beach, with nothing
on but a string in their butt crack and a 2-3 inch piece of
cloth covering the front.
I think this type of behavior would be considered
inappropriate at a public beach, especially when there
are families walking by with small children. I think police
efforts would be better used controlling this type of
behavior in our community before worrying about a man
walking his dog along the water.

Russell White

Editor's Note: That area has historically been used
by people to sunbathe nude but it has never been ap-
proved as a nude beach.

Homework helps

with contractors


UAVE LUWOLL


I read about Lang
Capasso's unfortunate
contractor maladies in
his column "Help wanted
- please." I am the
owner of Ram Marine, a
local marine construc-
tion company. As a
homeowner and user of
subcontractors in my
business, I sympathize
with the frustrations he
experienced. Fortunately,
I am in a position to
remedy those concerns
within my own company.
We make great efforts
to answer the phone,
show up quickly for
estimates and provide
pricing in a timely man-
ner. Additionally, we will
spend extra time with cli-
ents in order to educate
them on the products
we use. We will even go
so far as to explain each
point in our contracts so
they fully understand the
agreement. These traits
contributed toward our
company being awarded
the Venice Area Chamber
of Commerce Young Pro-
fessional Business of the
Year Award in 2009.
As a contractor I have
heard many stories like
his. And like Mr. Capasso,
all of us are usually so
busy or excited about
having work commence
that we forget to do our
homework. I offer my
advice to improve your
chances of having a good
service experience at
your home or business.
Work with a profes-
sional. Most contractors
must have a contractor's
license and liability and
worker's compensation
insurance. State law
requires that all licensed
contractors post their ac-
tual license numbers on
all their vehicles and ad-
vertisements, as opposed
to stating "Licensed and
Insured." Look for it
and ask them to provide
you with a certificate
of insurance. If they do
not carry insurance and
a worker is injured or
killed or they damage
your neighbor's property,


we |eto0qpricing"
0rl 0r111rw len wonn qphv llrpy'


you may be sued.
Ask for references or
go visit jobs they have
completed. Call your
local chamber of com-
merce to see if they are
a member or have had
any kudos or complaints
recorded about them.
Learn about the prod-
ucts you will have in-
stalled. Your contractors
should be knowledgeable
about the products they
use and why they use
them.
Price matters. There's
a truthful adage about
getting what you pay for.
If you get multiple quotes
and there are large price
discrepancies, find out
why. Contractors may
include more or fewer
services than others in
their quotes. Determine if
there might be additional
charges.
Some contractors
bid the estimate lower
to get the job and then
add charges later to gain
needed profit. Don't just
go with the lowest price.
Sometimes it's fine, but
usually you give some-
thing up for it.
Understand your
contract. A contract is an
agreement between two
parties for services. Don't
be afraid to amend a con-
tract if you want to add
or delete something. Just
remember that it should
be fair to both parties.
You should discuss how
much money and when
it is to be exchanged. Be
wary of contractors who
want hefty deposits.
Discuss how they plan
on backing up their
installation. Do they
warrant their work? How
long have they been in
business? How would
they charge you if some-
thing breaks? Is there
some form of mainte-
nance that you or they
must perform to keep the
product in good working

HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL



Flessner making name for himself


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

The pressure of following
one of the best football play-
ers to every don a Venice High
football jersey could be quite a
daunting task.
This is what Venice's new
quarterback Grant Flessner had
waiting for him at the start of
season.
The 16-year-old Flessner is
following in the footsteps of
three-year starting quarterback
Trey Burton, a freshman at
the University of Florida, who
owns most of the records for
the Indians. In his three years,
Burton threw for 5,118 yards
and 46 touchdowns and rushed
for another 2,865 yards and 63
touchdowns.
"I'm not Trey Burton," said
the 6-foot, 180-pound junior.
"I'm here to do what I can do


to the best of my
abilities and help


our team."
"I told him to
make his own
footsteps," said
Venice offensive
coordinator and
quarterbacks FLESSNER
coach Jon Cooley.
"I said Trey Burton was a great
athlete for Venice and he did
a lot great things for our team
and our program and he's
going to continue to do that
off in college. I told him one
thing you can learn from Trey
is character. He was out here
every day outworking everyone
of his teammates. If you can
adapt one thing from Trey, 'I
would like for you to outwork
your teammates every day.' "
The comparison is unfair to
begin with.
"There is no comparison, as


they are two different styles
of quarterbacks," said Cooley.
"Right now we are trying to
get him prepared to win this
year. You can't live in the past.
I really hope he's not thinking
about that stuff. I don't men-
tion Trey to him at all."
Flessner did admit to feeling
a little pressure in following
Burton.
"Trey is Trey and I am Grant
and I am here to do what I can
for the team," said Flessner.
"He's an unbelievable player
and congratulations on what
he's gone off and done."
"Me personally, I don't think
quarterbacks look at that," said
Cooley about the pressure of
following another quarterback.
"I never once thought that.
You come out here every day
and work hard and do what is
asked of you and try and do it
perfectly."


Flessner is not only the new
quarterback but also new to
the school after transferring
from Cardinal Mooney High in
Sarasota in April.
As a sophomore at Mooney,
Flessner completed 61 of 124
passes for 829 yards with eight
touchdowns and six intercep-
tions. He also rushed for 644
yards on 115 carries with six TDs.
Three factors played a role
in Flessner going to another
school.
"Better coaching, better
athletes, better opportunities,"
said Flessner. "It's so different
here. They are at the top of
their game and know what they
are talking about."
Having a coach like Cooley is
also helping Flessner.
Cooley, a Cardinal Mooney
graduate, played quarterback

CROSS COUNTRY VENICE INVITATIONAL



Palson, White pace Venice in first meet


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

Even though Venice's Tyler
Palson didn't stick to his strategy,
the senior pulled out a personal
best in the first meet of the sea-
son.
Palson finished in 20th place
with a time of 18 minutes, 6
seconds over the sandy 3.1-mile
course to lead the Indians to
seventh-place in the 37th annual
Venice Invitational on Saturday
at Oscar Scherer State Park in
Osprey
All five Venice boys, who
scored team points, placed in
the top 40 out of 90 runners, as
Venice scored 150 points.
In the girls race, juniors Kelly
White and Thelia Meza placed
in 18th and 19th out of 79 girls
as the Lady Indians took eighth
place out of 14 teams with 176
points.
Naples swept the team titles
in boys and girls races as well as
the top spot in each race. Buddy
Gates captured the boys with
a time of 16:38 while Hannah
Klopfwon the girls in 20:22.
"I wanted to go out hard the
first mile maybe save a little bit
on the second (mile) and on
the third (mile) just kick it, but
it didn't go as planned," Palson
said. "I kicked it a little too early,
about end of the first mile."
"Palson did very nice," said
Venice boys coach Jason Potter.
"He's been running well in prac-
tice, so I knew right away he was
going to go ahead and get that
personal best first time out."
However, Palson still had a
little extra left as he sprinted to
the finish line.
"I felt like I was dead after the
first two miles but I guess I had a
little extra for the final sprint," he
said. "It was just motivation and

Venice's Tyler Palson runs in the final
mile of the Venice Invitational cross

set a personal best with a time of
18:06 to place 20th out of 90 runners
as the Indians took seventh as a
team.


self-determination that I have to
finish it strong."
Palson's previous best was
18:45, set last year at districts.
Jonathan Kier and David En-
ander finished in 28th and 29th
places while Naphatara Teera-
sitikul and Anthony Hinsman
were in 36th and 27th place.
Not bad considering the In-
dians were missing two of their
top runners Dylan Boyd and
Mike Marsh due to injury.
"This meet we really weren't
looking for places because we
were missing two of our top


runners," said Palson. "This was
mainly to get ready and people
up to par."
"I'm pleased with sixth place
considering we don't have a full
squad today," said Potter, who
expects Boyd and Marsh to run
in the next invitational at North
Port on Sept. 25. "We want to
compare this time to last year's
time at this time in this meet.
Overall, pretty pleased. Sixth
place is OK. With a full squad
next week we will see a better
finish, hopefully."
Graduation hit the Lady Indi-
ans hard this season as they lost
three of their seven runners.
"We graduated so many
seniors last year," said Venice
girls coach Brenda Clark. "The
returning runners did well. They
actually did a little bit better."
Venice did return White, the
top runner last year.
In the first race, White cross
the line in 22:14.4 and Meza was
just behind at 22:16.
"I had no idea how I would do
honestly today," said White. "I
was really nervous. We just kept
a steady pace. No certain time
or place. I didn't want over 20
(place). I'm trying to build up for
district."
Other Lady Indian results
were Iris Canas, who ran a 23:50,
followed by Melinn Phifer and
Jordan Beuche in 50th and 51st
place in 24:21 and 24:30.
"The ones I moved up to
varsity this year," Clark said, "I
wanted them to build confi-
dence and say yeah, 'I'm ready
to run varsity and I can hang
with the better teams and better
runners.' "For today, I'm not real
happy about where we placed
but I'm OK with it considering
some of the teams that are here
from Lee County."
Clark isn't worried about the


times in the first meet of the
season.
"I actually have them run-
ning by place," said Clark. "The
course will reflect the time. If
it's a difficult course, the times
are slower. I want them to be in
a certain place and that is what
they are focused on now. Now
we have a base and know where
they stand and we can go for-
ward from here and get better."
"I'd like to thank Oscar Scherer
State Park and the 20 or more
volunteers who helped make
this event possible," said Potter.
Venice travels to the North
Port Invitational at the school.
Girls varsity race begins at 8 a.m.

Indians
When: Friday, Sept. 24
Where: Ram Bowl, Riverview High, Sarasota
On the Air: Radio- The Beach 98.9 FM
Outlook: Riverview The Rams (2-0) are
averaging 36 points per game with wins over DeSoto
County and Port Charlotte. Against the Pirates, River-
view showed a passing game, which it hasn't had in
many years. Quarterback Tater Williams completed
8-of-12 for 171 yards with three touchdowns. Wide
receiver Jeremy Jones caught two of the TD passes.
On the season, Jones has five catches for 74 yards.
Running back John Evans leads the Rams with 186
yards rushing on 22 carries as well as 96 yards on
three catches. Against Port Charlotte, Evans was
limited to 64 yards in the 35-14 victory. Riverview's
defense has allowed just 23 points in two games.
Venice The Indians (2-1) are averaging 32.6
points per game and have outscored their last two
opponents by a combined 94-8, including last week's
53-6 victory over Booker. Two weeks in a row Venice's
offense has gained at least 400 yards, including 317
and 358 yards on the ground in each game. Running
back Danny Dillard has rushed for 536 yards in three

for Auburn University as
well as professionally in
Europe.
"He's made me 1,000
times better, I think,"
said Flessner about
Cooley. "He knows what
he is talking about, com-
ing from the reads I need
to know to what to look
at in defenses and my
overall passing skills."
"I've worked on pretty
much everything," said
Cooley. "He's had some
decent coaching in the
past but in terms of his
technique and mechan-
ics, he is not there. We
really have to attack
him using his lower
body when he throws.
He throws with his arm
right now. He doesn't use
his lower body or legs.
We need to work on that
and how he throws in
rhythm. He throws a nice
ball, so we don't have to
teach him how to grip it."
Reading defenses is
a big part of playing at
Venice.
"We are running a col-
lege-style offense here,"
said Cooley. "You don't
just have one option. You
have to be pretty smart.
You are not going to play
for our offense if you are
not smart. You have to be
a quick thinker, poised,
and he's got all intan-
gibles that you like that
you can't teach. He's real
calm and a good leader.


Rams
games, including 210 and 226 yards in the last two
games. Against Booker, the junior scored five touch-
downs. Over the last two games Venice's defense has
been getting stronger, allowing 204 yards against
Braden River and 198 yards against Booker. The
total against the Tornadoes would have been more
impressive except for an 80-yard third-quarter run.
Quarterback Grant Flessner rushed for 91 yards and
threw for 42 yards. The Indians picked up their first
two turnovers of the season with interceptions by
Quaheem Kapinski and Connor Jones. Leading the
Indians'defense are defensive ends Clay Burton and
Terrell Solomon and linemen Dino Fanti and Omari
Phillips. The Indians are also getting solid play out
of linebackers Kye Rodgers, Mike Herndon and Jose
Vazquez. Venice has won its last three meetings with
Riverview, outscoring the Rams 81-42. Since 2000,
Venice has won six of 10 games against Riverview.
The Rams'last win over Venice was a 28-2 defeat in
2006. This is the Class 5A-District 10 opener for both
teams. Getting the first win in district is crucial to
making the postseason.
Prediction: Venice 28, Riverview 14


He likes to sit there in the
pocket.
Venice head coach
John Peacock agrees.
"He is picking up the
offense," said Peacock.
"It's a complicated offense
for a high school kid. He
is a great leader on the
field and that is all we ask
of him. From day one,
he's fit in great. He's done
everything we ask. He's a
hard worker. He made ev-
ery workout this summer.
He lifted hard and ran
hard. He's real smart."
Before last week, fans
didn't get a chance to
see his running ability.
Against Booker, Fless-
ner showed his speed,
toughness and ability to
read defenses in gaining
91 yards on 11 carries,
including five runs of
double-digit yards.
On the season, he has
121 yards rushing on 26
carries.
"We put more read runs
in for him," said Cooley.
"We ran a couple of plays
where he reads the de-
fensive tackle and either
gives or keeps and he did
a great job of reading the
defender. Keep the ball
and it's wide open."
"They were definitely
showing us more op-
portunity for me to run,"
said Flessner, who runs a
4.6-second, 40-yard dash.
"He's an athlete," said
Cooley. "Everybody saw it
against Booker he can
run the ball. He's tough
and hard-nosed. He's
a fiery kind of guy who
has competitive juices


in him. He's a smart kid
and good kid. He wants
to work and get better,
which makes my life a lot
easier."
On the season, Fless-
ner has completed 18 of
27 passes for 170 yards
with three touchdowns
and one interception.
"He is doing pretty good
job so far," said Cooley. "It's
a lot to ask a guy to come
in and learn a new offen-
sive playbook that is very
complicated and com-
plex. In terms of getting
pre-snap reads in passing
game, he has a little ways
to go but each day will get
better and better."
"He's going to be phe-
nomenal," said Peacock.
"He's getting better every
week. He continues to
grow every week and will
be phenomenal by the
time he's a senior."
Flessner will get a
chance to show off his
skills on Friday as the
Indians play at Riverview
in the Class 5A-District
10 opener.
"We don't win this
game, we are in for an up-
hill battle," said Peacock.
"There is a chance we
don't make the playoffs if
we don't win this game."
Flessner thinks this
Venice team can advance
in the postseason.
"The only thing stopping
us right now is ourselves,"
said Flessner. "If we can
eliminate some of the
mistakes here and there,
we can go pretty far."
Helping Flessner has
been the improvement

about having Dillard in the
backfield. "I know if I hand
the ball off to him, he is
going to make a play. It just
makes it that more difficult
to stop our offense."
Flessner started play-

played eight years of Pop

quarter. Fullback Aaron
Hackett then bulled his
way in for a 10-yard score.
Brent Killam followed with
his second conversion
kick to tie the game, 16-16.
The Lancers' defense,
led by hard-hitting line-
backers Mike Miller and
Preston Zweigler, defen-
sive tackles Taner Wright
and Kyle Kowalczyk and
defensive ends Steele Wil-
son and Hackett, bottled

The Lancers had
trouble stopping the Mus-

their big plays.

As a team, the Indians were 27th

Springs moves forward; negotiations continue


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER
At first glance, Sallyann Grie-
shaber said, the Warm Mineral
Springs Day Spa is not aes-
thetically pretty, and it "needs
to be enhanced in many ways."
But from a business perspec-
tive, "you have an absolute
gem here."
Grieshaber, who is British
and says she knows the value
of thermal springs, was speak-
ing at a public forum about
Warm Mineral Springs led
last month by North Port City
Manager Steve Crowell. She
uses the Springs regularly and
purchases birthday gifts for
friends at the spa. But as the
sales and marketing manager
for Fairfield Inn & Suites in
Venice, she also believes in the
day spa enough to market it to
hotel guests.
"We certainly see the value
and we hope to actually help
you increase your net worth
here by actually making it
more public, using our com-
mercial vehicles to take it that
way," she told forum attend-
ees.
While city officials iron
out the final details of the
$6.3 million purchase of the


80-acre day spa from Cypress
Lending of Naples, and hope
to bring an agreement to the
city commission in October
or November, day spa general
manager Gene Vaccaro said
he is "moving forward in my
marketing plans in such a way
that no matter who owns it,
the Springs benefits."
Vaccaro said he and other
spa officials try daily to meet
or exceed the needs of three
target customer audiences:
eastern Europeans, regular
customers who live in the
community, plus those who
come here on tour buses from
places like Chicago, Cincin-
nati and Atlanta; day-tripping
residents who live within a
30-mile radius, who may have
a negative perception of the
day spa; and anyone who may
have only recently heard of
Warm Mineral Springs, such as
Europeans who live in Florida,
from Orlando south.
"They are people that are
somewhat daring and looking
for a different kind of unique
experience from time to time,"
Vaccaro said.
Among the "daring" custom-
ers Vaccaro might have en-
countered Friday were Glennys

Christie of Venice, a six-year
resident, and her cousin, Ann
Reed, on holiday from the
United Kingdom. Both were
visiting the day spa for the first
time.
"I'd heard about it" from
friends, Chrsitie said. "I
wanted to show my cousin
something unusual, and this
seemed to fit."
Christie and Reed likely will
relay details about their time at
the day spa to others. Grie-
shaber said word of negative
customer experiences travels
twice as fast as positive com-
ments. Of people like Christie
and Reed, Vaccaro said, "We
have a real chance of not
meeting their expectations,
(unless) they are looking for
coming back to nature, a real,
down-to-earth natural experi-


ence."
Grieshaber approached
Vaccaro about a partnership,
trying to market packages to
Europeans like Reed. He said
they may feature a half day
or full day at Warm Mineral
Springs, golf, a museum visit
and shopping, among other
options.
"We are working with her
hotel. We will work with all
hotels," Vaccaro said. "What
we want to do is reach out to
people that have never heard
of Warm Mineral Springs, day-
trippers and weekend-trippers.
We are just now initiating con-
versations with tour guides,
bus companies and travel
agents throughout Florida."
Vaccaro also hired a domes-
tic travel agent and an interna-
tional travel agent to do what


Grieshaber does, but specifi-
cally for the Springs.
Meanwhile, the day spa also
sells products that contain
some of the 51 minerals from
the spring, such as skin-care
products, "healthy" chocolate
and a mineral supplement, as
well as the water itself.
"All of these are going to
provide any mineral deficien-
cies that your body may have,
directly from Mother Earth's
bounty, which is Warm Mineral
Springs," Vaccaro said. "We
will produce America's healthi-
est, most natural, mineralized
bath salt with not only salt,
but 50 other beneficial miner-
als. All over the world, you can
have your own Warm Mineral
Springs."

W wildlife


I was born in New Orleans. My family still lives here. We have
to restore the Gulf communities for the shrimpers, fishermen,
hotel and restaurant owners who live and work here.
Iris Cross, BP Community Outreach


No oil has flowed into the Gulf for weeks. But we know this is just the
beginning of our work. BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup
in the Gulf and that includes keeping you informed.

Restoring Gulf Communities
We can't undo this tragedy. But we can help people get back on their feet.
We have been working with impacted communities since day one.

Partnering with local governments and community organizations, my job is
to listen to people's needs and frustrations and find ways to help. We have
19 community centers and teams in four states, listening and helping.

Restoring The Economy
BP is here in Gulf communities with shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and
restaurant owners, helping to make them whole.

More than 120,000 claim payments totaling over $375 million have
already gone to people affected by the spill. We have committed a
$20 billion independent fund to pay all legitimate claims, including lost
incomes until people impacted can go back to work. And none of this
will be paid by taxpayers.

BP has also given grants of $87 million to the states to help tourism
recover and bring people back to the Gulf beaches.

Restoring The Environment
We're going to keep looking for oil and cleaning it up if we find it. Teams
will remain in place for as long as it takes to restore the Gulf Coast.

And we've dedicated $500 million to work with local and national scientific
experts on the impact of the spill and to restore environmental damage.

Thousands of BP employees have their roots in the Gulf. We support
over 10,000 jobs in the region and people here are our neighbors. We
know we haven't always been perfect, but we will be here until the oil
is gone and the people and businesses are back to normal. We will do
everything we can to make this right.

There's a new festival in town

FEATURES EDITOR
Venice no longer closes for
the summer.
Instead, the pace changes.
It is a quieter, gentler time.
Calendars are not so filled
with things to do as to be illeg-
ible.
Residents kick back and en-
joy the relative solitude at the
beach and the slower pace.
Fall becomes a transition
season as snowbirds begin to
return.
Adding a music festival to
Venice's October calendar
was a natural in the eyes of its
founder, Joel Kreiss,


Sunday, Oct. 3, the Jewish
Center of Venice will present A
Sunday Serenade and Supper,
a festival of music featuring
performers from the Sarasota
Orchestra.
"It all started soon after the
'snowbirds' flew their nests,"
he said. "There was a realiza-
tion that the season was over
and we full-time residents had
to make do until our 'birds'
returned."
Venice Theatre's sell-out
production of its summer
stock production of "Annie Get
Your Gun" was proof that there
were enough people in the
area looking for something to
do other than gathering all the


sharks' teeth missed by winter
tourists.
So was the success of Sara-
sota's Banyan Theater Compa-
ny, which completed its ninth
summer season in August.
Note that one of these
troupes is in Venice and the
other in Sarasota.
That is a clue to Kreiss' other
reasons for creating this new
festival.
"I wanted to introduce Ven-
ice to the Sarasota Orchestra
and the orchestra and its fans
to our jewel of a town," he
said. "I also wanted the Venice
community to discover our
Jewish Center of Venice."
Kreiss mentioned the annual


Jewish Film Festival run by the
The Jewish Federation of Sara-
sota/Manatee, enthused by
its success yet lamenting the
fact that few Venice residents
attend it. He hopes this new
music festival will be different
and that it will draw fans from
both cities.
His goal is to see more Ven-
ice residents taking advantage
of the cultural offerings in the
nearby city and to see more
Sarasota residents discover
Venice, including the JCV, Ven-
ice Theatre, Venice Symphony
and Venice Art Center.
"I am a lover of music,"
Kreiss said. "Our Sarasota
orchestra has grown over the


many years we have attended
its concerts into one of the
finest professional orchestras
anywhere. Yet, I would venture
to say that very few Venice
residents are aware of its qual-
ity. Hence, the idea of bringing
people together in order to
introduce them to each other."
Kreiss set the gears in mo-
tion by sending an e-mail to
the orchestra's conductor, Leif
Bjaland.
"To my delight, he called me
and we discussed my idea,"
Kreiss said. "Obviously, he
agreed and the wheels were set
in motion."

Members of the Sarasota String Quartet are Daniel Jordan, violin; Christopher K. Takeda, violin; Yuri Vasilaki, viola; Abraham Feder, cello.

Woman of the Year in Agriculture nominations due Nov. 1


FROM FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT
OF AGRICULTURE

Florida Agriculture Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson re-
cently announced that nomi-
nations are being accepted for
the 2010 Woman of the Year in
Agriculture award. The award,
now in its 26th year, recog-
nizes women who have made


outstanding contributions to
Florida agriculture.
"This award spotlights the
vital role of women in Florida
agriculture and serves to
encourage other women to
get involved in the business,"
Bronson said.
"Many women have made
significant contributions over
the years in developing and
sustaining this important


industry, which has an overall
economic impact estimated at
more than $100 billion annu-
ally."
Those nominated for the
award will be judged by a
panel familiar with Florida
agriculture. The award will be
presented Feb. 10 during the
opening-day luncheon of the
Florida State Fair in Tampa.
The Florida Department of


Agriculture and Consumer
Services, which sponsors the
event, has sent nomination
forms to agricultural organi-
zations around the state. The
deadline for submitting nomi-
nations to the department is
Nov. 1. Nominations remain
active for two years; after that
time they must be resubmitted
to be considered.
For more information about


the award, including screen-
ing criteria and biographies
of previous winners, or to

Mote to use Droid beach photo reports


FROM MOTE MARINE LABORATORY
Mote Marine Laboratory is
enhancing its Beach Condi-
tions Report in Sarasota and
Manatee counties with photos
thanks to new smartphone
Droids provided by Verizon.
The Droids will allow Mote's
beach observers to include
snapshots of current condi-
tions on beaches with every
report.
The enhancements came in
time for Labor DayWeekend,
which also marked the Beach
Conditions Report's fourth an-
niversary. The system was cre-
ated in 2006 to help answer the
public' questions about red
tide along Gulf Coast Beaches.
Enhanced Beach Conditions
Reports are already coming
from Lee County beaches,
thanks to support provided
by a grant from that county's
Tourist Development Council.
The 19 Droids provided by
Verizon, along with a Jelks
Foundation grant that will pay
for wireless service, are allow-


ing Mote to continue to pro-
vide this public service from
Manatee and Sarasota counties
and expand the information
the report provides the public.
The additional Droids will
also help expand photo capa-
bilities to Collier and Escam-
bia counties as well, though
the system won't be live from
those counties for several
weeks.
On Sept. 2, Mote staff mem-
bers trained Sarasota County
lifeguards to use the new
system. The enhanced reports
went live Labor Day weekend
from most beaches in Sarasota
and Manatee counties. But
those not immediately online
will continue to phase in dur-
ing the month.
"When we created the
report, the public was con-
cerned primarily about red
tide and wanted to know
whether the beach they were
planning to visit was being
affected," said the report's
creator, Dr. Barbara Kirk-


patrick. Today, thousands
of people from all over the
world are using the report to
check out what is happen-
ing at their favorite beaches.
Many tourists are using it
to monitor the areas where
they are planning to vaca-
tion, especially in light of the
oil spill. They say a picture is
worth a thousand words and
the Droids are helping show
the beach conditions.
"Mote Marine Labora-
tory is doing fantastic work
monitoring and reporting on
one of Florida's most impor-
tant natural resources our
beaches," said Pam Tope,
Florida region president for
Verizon Wireless. "Their new
enhanced Beach Conditions
Report takes full advantage of
available technology through
the Android operating system
to provide even more useful
information to visitors and
residents alike."
The Beach Conditions
Report covers 33 beaches


along Florida's Gulf Coast from
the Panhandle south to Collier
County.
Reports are provided by
specially trained observers and
updated twice daily at 10 a.m.
and 3 p.m. 365 days a year.
Each report is time stamped so
the public knows when it was
last updated.
Reports are provided by life-
guards, parks personnel and
beach patrol officers who use
PDAs to upload information
directly to the web via a special
interface designed by Mote.
The reports can be viewed on-
line at www.mote.org/beaches.
The public can also sign up
there to receive reports about
particular beaches via e-mail
or call (941) BEACHES to listen
to reports over the phone.
The Beach Conditions
Report includes several types
of information:
*Water color and wind
direction
Surf conditions
SWhether and where algae is


present
*Whether dead fish are pres-
ent
*Whether there is respirato-
ry irritation among beachgoers
Reports of rip currents
(only at beaches with life-
guards)
Oil spill impacts
Oil spill impact severity
In April 2010, Mote ex-
panded its Beach Conditions
Report to include information
about impacts from the oil
spill and has been working to
increase the number of beach-
es covered. "We'd really like
to expand the reports to all of
the state's 165 major beaches,"
Kirkpatrick said. "We've been
seeking funding to do so, both
through private donations and
through foundations and state
agencies."
For information on how you
can make a donation to sup-
port Mote's Beach Conditions
Report, call Mote's Develop-
ment Office at 388-4441, ext.

NEW: Venice new site for October music festival, including Sarasota Orchestra


FROM PAGE 1
No sooner had the Oct. 3
date been finalized than Kreiss
learned about a new assisted-
living facility, The Windsor of
Venice, that wanted to become
better known. It will donate a
buffet for concert guests.


"A win-win for all parties,"
Kreiss said.
Not only was the event
coming together, but the
price could be held at $15
for JCV members and $20 for
nonmembers for concert and
dinner.
The Sarasota Orchestra will


be represented by its string
and piano quartet as well as its
first-chair clarinetist, Bharat
Chandra. They will perform
"Tempest Fantasy" by Moravec
with Chandra as clarinet solo-
ist, and Beethoven's "String
Quartet No. 6 in B-flat Major."
For information on Sarasota


Orchestra, visit www.
SarasotaOrchestra.org. For
information on the Jewish
Center of Venice, visit www.
jewishcenterofvenice.org.
Tickets for the Sunday Ser-
enade are $15 for JCV mem-
bers and $20 for others. The
price includes a buffet supper,


catered by The Windsor of Ven-
ice, following the concert.
Send checks to Jewish
Center of Venice, 600 North
Auburn Road, Venice FL 34292.

tions, call 484-2022.

CHIROPRACTIC- HERE TO STAY
CHIROPRACTIC HERE TO STAY


DR. DAN BUSCH, DR. ERENE ROMANSKI
CHIROPRACTOR
Despite original opposition of organized
medicine, chiropractic, it is, indeed here to
stay. Today, almost every community in the
nation is served by a doctor of chiropractic.
Five new chiropractic colleges have opened
since 1970 to accommodate the demand to
train students interested in entering that field
of health care.
Institutional recognition has also been
forthcoming. More than 600 insurance
companies provide for chiropractic care in


health and accident policies. Claims are
honored under Workmen's Compensation
programs in the US and Canada. Millions of
union members and many national employees
organizations are eligible for care.
The American Medical Association
recently recognized the validity of
chiropractic treatment. It now holds that "a
physician may refer a patient for diagnosis or
therapeutic services to any other provider of
health care permitted by law to furnish such
services."


PAYMENT, OR BE REIMBURSED FOR PAYMENT FOR ANY OTHER SERVICE, EXAMINATION, OR TREATMENTTHAT
IS PERFORMED AS A RESULT OF ANDWITHIN 72 HOURS OF RESPONDING TO THE ADVERTISEMENT FOR THE
FREE, DISCOUNTED FEE, OR REDUCED FEE SERVICE, EXAMINATION, OR TREATMENT

a pioneer cemetery and visitor center in a former schoolhouse. Stop there first to see its Orientation Theatre.

SERIOUS CONSIDERATIONS
REGARDING YOUR ORAL HEALTH
We appreciate these are difficult economic times,
causing budget management challenges. Yet, there are
compelling reasons not to disregard your oral health.
Dental neglect is costly to correct. In addition to losing
valuable natural teeth; new research links gum and bone
infection in the mouth to health problems such as heart
attack, stroke, and diabetes.
Periodontal bacteria can travel in the blood stream and
cause infections to major organs.
Periodontal infection has also been linked to
respiratory problems. In pregnancy, periodontal disease
increases the risk of delivering pre-term.
National Institute of Dental Research statistics project
that 90% of people over age 13 have some stage of gum
disease. Do not overlook the importance of seeing your
dental health professional.

Ladies and gentlemen and
children of all ages, life is a
circus. So say the members of
the Women's Sertoma Club of
Venice. Their annual alumnae
party brought friends together
as volunteers for this year's Sun
Fiesta.
Several members wore their
"Life is a Circus" Sun Fi-
esta shirts. Bonnie Kaiser took
charge of the evening, which
included pizza, wine and cake.
Does it get any better?
Nancy Jordan announced her
new granddaughter, named
Mackenzie Jordan. Three cheers,
Nancy.
The group discussed future
projects that include Thanksgiv-
ing baskets for needy families,
a poinsettia sale and adopt-a-
family for Christmas. Proceeds

This nice lady is a Women's
Sertoma Club of Venice return-
ing alumna. She comes back
each year to volunteer at Sun
Fiesta. When a member, she
served as a committee chair and
officer in the club.
Now that she is retired, her
adventures include recently
completing a triathlon and a
hiking vacation through Eng-
land. Closer to home, she enjoys
spending time with her family.
Volunteering comes naturally
to her. She was a nurse at Venice
Regional Medical Center who
took a leave and spent time
working in Louisiana during
the Katrina disaster at her own
expense.
Luci Rich is one of the women
who make Venice a great place
to live.

Flying over

the seas


The legend of the Flying Dutchman is one of the all-time great
ghost stories.
Back in my Cleveland days the name was even given to
one of the top racing sailboat classes on Lake Erie. Developed for
the Olympics in the 1960s, the two-man sailboat was a great one
for beginning racers and picked up by several yacht clubs for their
junior sailors. Maybe that is why the name morphed into Flying
"Juniors." My husband was a sailing instructor during college so I
heard a lot about the Dutchman and also about his father's sailboat,
Syren, which is where Ken first honed his sailing skills.
The name Syren also had a ghostly connotation and also was
very fast, winning most of the big-boat races on Lake Erie and even
its division in the Chicago Mackinac race one year.
Venice Theatre's season opener on the Pinkerton stage, The
Flying Dutchman,' adapted by local playwright Ron Myroup,"
inspired my boat trip down Memory Lane.
With Halloween season upon us, the timing is perfect, as it was
last year for Myroup's adaptation of another classic ghost story,
"The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.' Not just a talented playwright and
actor, Myroup can not only ask the "What if questions" but come up
with intriguing answers and blend them into classic stories in a way
that makes the story even better. He did that so well last year with
"Sleepy Hollow" that performances had to be added.
If ever there were a season in which lighting could strike twice it
would be this one. I ordered my tickets weeks ago.

Myroup'


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
In advance of the ghostly season, local play-
wright Ron Myroup has penned a variation on
one of the world's classic ghost stories "The
Flying Dutchman." It will open Sept. 23 as a Gen-
erations offering on Venice Theatre's Pinkerton
Stage where it will run Thursday-Sunday through
Oct. 10.
Last year Myroup embellished the story of "The
Legend of Sleepy Hollow" by adding a romantic
twist and extra characters. The show became a
sell-out and had to be extended.
According to information from the theater,
Myroup added "a twist of romance and a touch
of the supernatural" to the story of the ghost ship
that must ply the seas for eternity and its crew
that can come ashore just one day per decade.
This is a story that appeals to all ages, making it
a perfect fit for the theater's Generations produc-
tions. Myroup's version explores "why" the ship
was cursed and perhaps will shed some light on
the eerie glow on the horizon that is so much a
part of the tale.
As an opera (by Richard Wagner), The Flying
Dutchman" was produced in a recent season by
Sarasota Opera. The story is such a classic that
references are included in Disney's "Pirates of the
Caribbean" and in many other genres.
Myroup directs the multi-generational cast
which includes Jake Fricke as Captain Victor
Van Decker, Kenzie Balliet as Princess Re-
gatta, Kaitlyn Terpstra as Anastasia "Queenie"
DuPree, Brandon Farlin as Maroon Muldoon,
Ray Burroughs as Alder Muldoon, Michael Burke
as Patrick Muldoon, Eric Schneider as Charles
Finely/2nd officer Finley, Denielle Balliet as Ara-
bella Dain Finley, Kiah Evans as Violeta Finley,
Tyler Bazenas as Scratchman/Professor Diavolo
and Tim Polk as Samuel/Captain Kidd. Also in the
cast are Elaine Levin-Smith, Noelle Oxboel, Zack
Evanicki, Cole Murray, Thomas Junker, Hunter
Cross, Logan Yates and Jack Rabito (as Davey
Jones). Longtime Venice Theatre folks will be
pleased about the inclusion of Charles Finley in
the cast.
Sets are by Donna Buckalter, costuems are
by Jeanette Rybicki, lighting by Michael Newton-
Brown and sound by Dorian Boyd.
Venice Theatre is at 140 W.Tampa Ave., on
the island in downtown Venice.Tickets for "The
Flying Dutchman" are $10 for students and $15
for adults.
Performances are at 7 p.m. Thursday through
Saturday and at 2 p.m. on Saturdays and Sun-
days. Visit www.venicestage.com or call the box
office at 941-488-1115, weekdays from 10 a.m. to
5 p.m, Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and one
hour before each performance.

Florida Caverns State Park


BY RALPH ALLEN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Southwest Florida is mostly flat (except for
highway overpasses and fire ant mounds)
so you won't see anyone doing any moun-
tain climbing in our region. Not only is Southwest
Florida vertically challenged, the soil here is so
sandy that when you dig a hole it usually fills
up with water and this means that there aren't
any caves to explore in our area either unless
you're a scuba diver. However, if you venture
towards Florida's northern border the topography
and geology change significantly. Florida's peak
elevation of 345 feet (lowest peak height of any
of the 50 states) is found in northwestern Florida
and is still not high enough to attract the attention
of many mountain climbers, but the rocky terrain
found there does offer an attraction of another
sort: cave exploration.
If cave exploring is unappealing to you
because the idea of clambering into a hole in
the ground and groping around in a damp, dark
cavern seems creepy, you're not alone. My
wife Patti is a bit claustrophobic and when I told
her that we had an opportunity to visit Florida
Caverns State Park for a cave tour she was not
very enthusiastic. Well, not only did she survive
her subterranean adventure, she absolutely loved
it, as did every person in our tour group.
I'd never imagined that such a dazzling display
of rock formations existed in Florida. The array
of stalactites, stalagmites, draperies and all sorts
of spectacular geology which lies underground at
Florida Caverns rivals the displays at any cave in
the nation. All tours are escorted by Park Rang-
ers who guide small groups of visitors on a tour
that begins with a short hike from the visitor cen-
ter to a flight of stairs which leads to the entrance
to the cave, followed by a walk of approximately
30 minutes through the cave itself. The tour
guide stops at numerous points during the trip
to talk about various rock formations, the natural
history of the caves, and the history of the Park.
There are plenty of opportunities for photography
and plenty of beautiful underground vistas worth
photographing. At one point during our guide
asked everyone to be still as he briefly flipped off
the lights. Total darkness and complete silence
ensued, a darkness so absolute that it made no
difference whether eyes were open or shut, and
a silence so profound that we were all relieved a
few moments later when the lights returned.
The cave tour is described as "moderately
strenuous" but I'd judge this to be too harsh a
label. The pace is leisurely and I believe that
anyone who can manage a flight of stairs would
have little difficulty. There are places where the


overhead is low enough
that tall people must stoop,
but the tour trail is well lit "-
and mostly level, thanks <- -
to thousands of hours of
labor by members of the
Civilian Conservation Corps
who crafted the route as a
public works project during
the 1930's. The cave air
is somewhat humid but
not damp and stays at a
constant, comfortable 65
degrees. The cave sees
an average of 125,000
visitors annually, and hosts
two or three weddings per
year. And yes, there are t
bats in the cave. We saw
a few hanging asleep overhead, and one or two
took flight around our group, but the tiny animals
(approximately three inches tall) are not nearly as
spooky in person as on TV.
Florida Caverns State Park is located less
than an hour's drive northwest of Tallahassee just
outside of Marianna, Florida approximately six
miles north of Exit 142 on Interstate 10.

ON THE ROAD
ON THE ROAD AGAIN TOURS


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Where else but at Walt Disney World
would someone decide more food
was needed at Epcot.
Despite offering a "World" filled with restau-
rants serving tasty treats from China, Africa,
Mexico, Canada, France, Norway, England,
Germany and more, for the 15th year, those
Disney folks are working their chefs even
harder and bringing in outside culinary
experts and more.
This year there will be treats from Belgium
and South Korea.You may be thinking choco-
late but what about those Belgian waffles sold
on the street corners? As for Korean fare it
is not just Kimch'i and rice. Since neither Bel-
gian nor Korean foods are all that commonly
found in Florida, this year's festival may turn
out to be even better than previous festivals.
One thing that can always be expected is
the unexpected, from entertainment to all the
various foods and wines waiting for the arrival
of all those food tasters ready to try some-
thing they have never eaten before.
Also new this year is the "First Bites" open-
ing reception Sept. 30, the evening before the
official grand opening of the 15th annual Food
& Wine Festival.
Visit 27 international marketplaces,
participate in several wine seminars, watch
culinary demonstrations, sip a little wine, find
kitchen gadgets you never even knew existed
and experience some signature restaurants.
Samplings will be available at the "First Bites"
event and then can be fully explored each
day of the festival. "First Bites" is an upscale
reservations-only event in the Festival's
Welcome Center.
For this year's festival there are four
new venues for the Culinary Adventures in
Signature Dining. Participants experience
gourmet meals accompanied by special
wines at 15 sites within the Walt Disney World
resort complex, beginning Oct. 5 at Paradiso
37. Other sites will include Kouzzina by Cat
Cora, Bongo's Cuban Cafe and Fulton's Crab
House.

replaced Spoodles over at the Boardwalk
area, across the water from the Yacht and
Beach Club area just outside Epcot's World
Showcase. Bongo's is in Downtown Disney
Westside and Fulton's Crab House is in
Downtown Disney.
On several Thursdays and Fridays during
the festival, enjoy dessert samplings and
cordials with VIP viewing of IllumiNations;

Many demonstrations, talks and concerts at
the American Gardens Theatre are included
with regular park admission. There is an extra
charge for some of the special experiences
mentioned above.

Cementing its designation as the heart of
the Cultural Coast, Sarasota will gain the
Carreno Dance Festival, named for famed
dancer Jose Manuel Carreno, principal dancer
with the American Ballet Theater.
Recently announced by Robert deWarren,
former director of the Sarasota Ballet and current
president and CEO of the Sarasota International
Dance Festival, the Carreno festival is being
modeled after the Sarasota Music Festival and the
Perlman Winter Residency.
The Perlman program brings upcoming young
musicians to Sarasota each winter to study with
the likes of famed violinist Itzhak Perlman and oth-
er leading musicians. Founded by Perlman's wife
Toby, the intensive two-week program will begin
this year on Dec. 28 and continue until Jan. 8. The
public is welcome to attend some 20 free events,
including master classes, choral rehearsals and
other events during the two-week session leading
up to the final celebration concert gala event at
the Sarasota Opera House. Tickets for the concert
are $35-$75 and $500 for the concert and gala
event. For tickets, call 941-350-2338. For informa-

own housing solution. Rally together to raise awareness of the need for safe, decent, affordable
housing for all from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 2 at Laishley Park. The rally begins at 10am with the

way. Guest speaker, Sam Emerick, Founder of Charlotte County Habitat for Humanity as well

A SetionOf


'Greater Tuna'


opens


61st mainstage season



at Venice Theatre


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Venice Theatre's artistic directors Murray
Chase and Allan Kollar are bringingg"
"Greater Tuna,' Texas back once again to
the theater's main stage.
Greater Tuna, for the un-initiated, is billed as
the third smallest town in Texas. It is so small its
radio station barely needs all 275 watts of power
to reach its audience, especially when Chase
and Kollar play the roles of its 20 most color-
ful citizens. If thought they all just wear Levis in
"Greater Tuna" you would be wrong.
Bertha and Pearl both have nice dresses. As
long as the dresses fit, life will go on in "Greater
Tuna,' Texas and Radio Station OKKK can broad-


cast a few more times.
This is the third installment at Venice Theatre
where Team Chase/Kollar performed the show
first in 2006 before taking the show on the road
to Rehobath, Del. for a summer run and then
reprised the show in Venice in 2008.
The theater's press release referred to this
2010 run as the "last" but time may tell a different
tale about the town where the "Lions Club is too
liberal and Patsy Cline never dies."
The two actors change costumes so often
there will be three dressers backstage for each of
them. Chase plays Thurston Wheelis, Elmer Wat-
kins, Bertha Bumiller, Yippy, Leonard Childers,
Pearl Burras, RR Snavely, Sheriff Givens and
Hank Bumiller. Kollar plays Aries Struvie, Didi


Snavely, Harold Dean Lattimer, Petey Fisk,
Jody Bumiller, Charlene Bumiller, Stanley Bu-
miller, Chad Hartford, Phinas Blye and Vera Carp.
That the two actors manage to keep persona
and costumes straight is one of those theater
miracles that keeps audiences coming back for
more. Nicholas Hartman designed the costumes;
Jahn Van Wart designed the sets, John Andzulis
designed the lighting and Dorian Boyd is the
sound designer.
"Greater Tuna," the comedy written by Jason
Williams, Joe Sears and Ed Howard, starring
Chase and Kollar, and directed by Brad Wages,
opens the theater's 51st mainstage season
Tuesday, Sept. 28 at 8 p.m. It runs through
Oct. 17, playing evenings at 8 p.m. Tuesday


through Saturday and at 2 p.m. on Sundays.
Tickets are $24 for Tuesday-Thursday per-
formances and $27 for weekend performances.
Student tickets are $12-$15.
For tickets, visit www.venicestage.com or call
the box office at 941-488-1115.
Venice Theatre is at 140 W.Tampa Ave.,
on the island in downtown Venice.

Edison welcomes poet Nin Andrews


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER
Nin Andrews doesn't write poems that just
sit on a page. Her poems come alive and
delve into the depths of human
experiences and she's coming
to Charlotte County to read
her work.
Sponsored by the Peace
River Center for Writers at
Edison State College, An-
drews will read 6:30 p.m.
Sept. 25 in the auditorium
of the Edison State College
Charlotte Campus, 26300
Airport Road, Punta Gorda.
The reading is free and open to the
public.
But for fledgling and journeyman poets, the
writing center has scheduled a workshop with
Andrews 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. before the reading.
The workshop is $10 for members and $20 for
non-members. Participants are asked to enroll in
advance. For more information, call the writing
center at (941) 637-3514 or e-mail prcw@edison.
edu.
Andrews, 52 and a mother of two adult chil-
dren, has published five collections of poetry: "The
Book of Orgasms" (Cleveland State University
Poetry Center, 2000), "Why They Grow Wings"
(Silverfish Review Press, 2001), Midlife Crisis With
Dick And Jane" (Del Sol Press, 2005) "Sleeping
With Houdini" (BOA Editions Ltd., 2007) and
"Southern Comfort" (Cavankerry, 2009). She's
also the editor of the "Someone Wants to Steal My
Name," translations of French poet Henri Michaux
(Cleveland State University Poetry Center, 2003).
She often chooses to write line-less prose po-
ems that combine the lyrical and other elements
of poetry with the narrative and other elements of
prose writing.
"I love hybrids, mixed metaphors, collages,
and surprises, and a prose poem provides all of
these," Andrews told the Sun. "A prose poem is a
form of poetry that often takes off on other forms
of writing, whether it be a letter, an ad, a story, a
myth, an interview, a news report. A prose poem


provides a lot of opportunity for play, for humor."
When asked why she writes poetry a genre
that sees a limited, if not petite or miniscule,
audience compared to the readers of fiction,
memoirs or other non-fiction works
Andrews sees herself as an
introvert.
"But I think poetry has
always had a small
audience,' she said. "
think that is somehow
liberating. I can write
whatever I wish to write.
All my forbidden thoughts,
untold stories, secrets, and
only a few will notice."'
And she does.
Andrews in her writing besides being a
lyrical and metaphorical wizard she is fearless.
She shies away from no subject, as evidence in
her "The Book of Orgasms" where sexual ecstasy
transfigures into an Ariel sprite going wherever
she wills.
Her poems are also diverse in their topics and
explorations. Expect, too, humor from simple puns
to subtle irony, sometimes even in the same twist
of phrase.
A telling poem is The Artichoke" in her 'Why
They Grow Wings."The poem starts with a straight
declarative fact, artichokes are ugly, comparing it
to "Grandma's bathing cap, green and shrunken
after all these years." By the middle of the poem,
after acquiring a taste for artichoke, takes on the
"heart of Buddha," and by the end the poem, a
dream lover to be savored and devoured.
Those who remember "Dick and Jane" from
their first grade readers should enjoy her "Midlife
Crisis With Dick And Jane." As the title suggests
Dick and Jane have matured, struggling with all
the doubts and challenges of adulthood. What's
interesting is how Andrews' diction and cadences
keep alive the spirit of those childhood characters.
This book shines with an originality much like
John Berryman created with Henry in his "Dreams
Songs."
Whatever Andrews reads at Edison should be
entertaining to the listeners. She's that talented.

Homemade food from family recipes delights mall shoppers


BY BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
When Nick Manos opened Athens
Grecian Delight in the Port Charlotte
Town Center mall 20 years ago, it took
a while to get the business going.
"A lot of people didn't really understand what
Greek food was back then,' explains Manos. So,
with a stroke of genius, he added a chicken melt
to the menu and brought in the under-20 crowd.
"Today, those same customers still come back for
the chicken melt, only now they're married and
they bring their families."
Word soon spread that all the menu items
were homemade from family recipes, and the
Greek foods became popular too. It's a toss-up
whether their Greek salads or gyros are the most
popular now.
The extensive menu has something for
everyone beef or lamb gyros, pork or chicken
souvlaki, spinach pie, and Americanized choices
such as steak sandwich, ham and turkey melt,
chicken salad or tuna melt on pita.
Prices start at around $4 for a pita sandwich,
and the daily special offers a different sandwich
each day of the week along with fries, a Greek
side salad and a beverage -a complete home-
made meal for just $7.40.
"People are surprised to learn that the restau-
rant isn't a chain,' says Dawn Larry, who joined
Manos as his business partner 14 years ago.
"It's a true'mom and pop' type restaurant. We
cook our own meats and slice them right here."
In a typical week they go through seven cases of
chicken alone compared with one case in the
early days.
Gyro meat roasts on a spit behind the counter,
its tantalizing aroma beckoning to hungry shop-
pers. Once they try it, the savory meat accented
with homemade tsaziki sauce Manos' wife's
special recipe of yogurt, vinegar and lemon -
brings them back for more.
If the diner has room for dessert, Athens
Grecian Delight has several delicacies to
choose from. Baklava of course the delightful,
triangular shaped pastry sheets lined with honey
and nuts but baklava is only the beginning.
For chocolate lovers, flogeres is a rolled pastry
treat with honey and nuts, the top drizzled with
chocolate.
And anyone who thinks all Greek desserts are
layered with honey and nuts hasn't tasted the
Kourabiedes powdered sugar cookies or the
butter cookies called Koulouria.
'We Greeks love our desserts!" said Manos.
Also on the menu are foods made with falafel
and hummus which, Manos points out, are more
Arabic than Greek, but are included because they
are so popular. "It's all about giving the custom-
ers what they want."
Being in the mall means that Athens Grecian
Delight is open during mall hours: 10 a.m. to 9
p.m. Monday through Saturday, and noon to 6


001i !
