The intersection of U.S. 41 Bypass and Center Road in Venice may one day include a roundabout.


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

Planning a commu-
nity's network of roads,
bridges and buses is
like preparing to pay for
your children's college
education, William Roll
said.
If you begin paying a
percentage of the cost
the day they are born,
and you pay something
year after year, "when
you get to the point
where they are 18 years
old and they are driving
off to college, it's not
going to hurt very bad,"
said Roll, a transpor-
tation planner with
Tampa-based Tindale-
Oliver & Associates.
"If you wait until they
graduate from college,
it's really, really difficult
to do."
Paying for roads
- which can take 10
to 14 years to design
and construct - has a
similar effect. Roll helps
local governments cre-
ate forward-thinking
transportation plans
so they can project 25
years into the future.
But sometimes commu-
nities that want a "Har-
vard" road network can


only afford the equiva-
lent of "a quality state
university," he said.
The Sarasota/Mana-
tee MPO is complet-
ing its plan, which is
required in exchange
for federal transporta-
tion funds. The plan is
due Dec. 31.
Roll said his job is to
figure out where people
will live and work 30
years into the future and
what kind of transporta-
tion network they will
need, to be able to sup-
port growth and have a
high quality of life.
"We're basically
taking a snapshot in
December 2010," said
Mike Maholtz, trans-
portation planner for
the Sarasota/Manatee
MPO. "It's an educated
guess."
Updated every five
years, long-range plans
show how communi-
ties will spend state and
federal gas tax funds
allocated to counties
through these federally
funded and federally
mandated community
MPOs, of which there
are 26 in Florida's 67
counties, to plan region-
ally significant roads.
The Sarasota/Manatee


MPO consists of 15
elected officials.
During this era of
fiscal austerity and
slow economic growth,
rarely will a long-range
plan anticipate enough
federal, state and local
funds to meet a commu-
nity's projected needs.
The Sarasota/Manatee
MPO projects the ability
to fund approximately 58
percent ($2.08 billion) of
its needed $3.6 billion.
"If you could write a
check (for $3.6 billion),
that will build us a
transportation network
over the next 25 years
that every citizen and
business will (ap-
prove)," said Michael
Howe, executive direc-
tor of the Sarasota/
Manatee MPO.
But that plan is not
"financially feasible."
So they base what's
feasible on a careful
study of anticipated
federal, state and local
taxes, impact fees (a
dwindling sum during
the recession) and other
funding sources.
The cost of building
roads is high at the same
time that revenue is
down.
"Federal gasoline tax-


es have not increased
since the early 1990s,"
Roll said. "It's cents on
a gallon and gasoline
costs probably twice
what it did back then."

South County
The Sarasota/Mana-
tee MPO created its
long-range plan with
the help of an Orlando
consultant. Among
other things, it calls for
changes to three major
South Sarasota County
roads over the next 25
years:
* Funding for the
widening of River Road
- a regional hurricane
evacuation route - to
four lanes was broken
down into four seg-
ments to make it more
affordable. North River
Road was divided into
segments from U.S.
41 to Center Road and
from Center Road to
Interstate 75. South of
U.S. 41, the segments are
Winchester Boulevard
and South River Road.
This project - a high
MPO priority - will be
funded by a combina-
tion of federal funds and
impact fees, but rather
than traditional MPO


funds, officials will rely
on federal transportation
earmarks. That decision
was made about 10 years
ago when earmarks were
easier to obtain, and may
be changed.
This project likely
won't begin until at
least 2016, and could
take more than 20 years
to complete.
The widening of
the intersection of
River Road and U.S.
41, funded largely by
impact fees, will begin
in summer 2011, if not
sooner.
* A full, four-leg
interchange is planned
for where Interstate 75
and State Road 681 -
the Venice Connector
- meet. Meanwhile,
a project to extend
Honore Avenue to Man-
atee County includes
the ongoing construc-
tion of an intersection
at Honore and S.R. 681,
less than a mile west of
the interstate, so motor-
ists will have to adjust
to S.R. 681 evolving
from an expressway to a
road with traffic signals
on it.

Council

may cut


video

By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
City council is leaving no
stone unturned in its effort
to reduce a $3 million deficit
left in the budget adopted in
September.
Mayor John Holic has ques-
tioned whether televised coun-
cil meetings are something the
public can do without.
The city spends almost
$18,000 annually ($135 per
hour) to record the meet-
ings, which are televised twice
weekly for free byVerizon and
Comcast, as time is available.
Most meetings aren't played in
full as service providers usually
provide a maximum of four
hours and council meetings
typically last longer than that.
The city already makes avail-
able an audio recording of the
meeting on CD for 50 cents.
Holic raised the issue on
Dec. 14, and said he'll bring it

Market gets

new manager

By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
To applause, Venice City
Council last week reassigned
the existing contract to run
the downtown Venice Farm-
ers Market. Linda Wilson, who
took over for manager Nancy
Trascik when she moved to
Panama in August, formally
assumes the helm.
More than a dozen market
vendors and local business
owners turned out at the coun-
cil meeting to support Wilson.
Venice MainStreet Inc., the
Downtown Merchants Associa-
tion and Venice Area Chamber
of Commerce also endorsed
Wilson as the new manager.
"I started the market two
years ago and (Trascik) was
our manager," said Terry
Ross. "Nancy was a very good
manager. Linda has taken the
Venice market to a new level.
That is her world. She is very
competent and very auspi-
cious. I'd love to see her take
over as manager."
Elaine Grosen, who owns a
painting studio on Miami Ave-
nue, praised Wilson's handling
of the market. Also a vendor at
the market, she said it helped
her make ends meet when she
first started her business.

Baylis retiring from Sarasota EDC executive post


FROM EDC
OF SARASOTA COUNTY

Kathy Baylis, the
founding president and
CEO of the Economic
Development Corpora-
tion of Sarasota County,
will retire in June, EDC
Board Chair David Ses-
sions announced Friday.
The board has formed
a fact-finding group to
identify candidates for
the executive role.
"The EDC and the
Sarasota County com-
munity owe Kathy Baylis
a tremendous debt of
gratitude for the leader-
ship she has demon-
strated in 15 years of
contributing to mak-
ing Sarasota County a
better place to live and
work," Sessions said.
"We foresee a challenge
in identifying the ideal
candidate to assume the
role of CEO and presi-
dent at the EDC. Kathy
has set the bar incred-
ibly high."
"I am proud of all that
our team at the EDC has
accomplished on behalf
of the businesses and
residents of Sarasota
County," Baylis told the
EDC board this week.
"My retirement plans are
not on the front burner
yet. I shall remain fo-
cused on the EDC while
the board seeks a new
chief executive."
Baylis, 63, started
her career in economic
development in 1995
as assistant director of
the Committee of 100, a
division of the Greater
Sarasota Chamber of
Commerce. She assumed
leadership of the cham-


ber's economic develop-
ment function in 1999,
and guided formation
of the EDC of Sara-
sota County, which was
launched independently
of the chamber in 2004.
Prior to entering the field
of economic develop-
ment, Baylis was general
manager of Plantation
Golf & Country Club in
Venice.
Sessions praised
Baylis' "impressive track
record," starting with her
guiding the community
through a reorganization
of countywide economic
development efforts in
2004. Baylis gathered
support from all of the
municipalities that to-
day still actively partici-
pate, he said, and raised
$190,000 in private-
sector funds to facilitate
the reorganization and
relocation of the EDC
offices to a more cen-
tral location. Baylis also
spearheaded creation
of the Partners Coun-
cil, which coordinates
economic development
activities throughout the
county.
In early 2007, Bay-
lis added the Film &
Entertainment division
of the EDC, negotiating
funding for the program
and hiring a professional
director to manage it.
Since its inception, the
Film & Entertainment
Office has facilitated
hundreds of produc-
tions generating more
than $13.6 million in
economic impact in the
community.
Baylis also col-
laborated with county
partners to create the


SMART (rapid response
permitting) program,
which facilitates per-
mitting for companies
that are expanding and
relocating. Her team
also assisted the city
of Sarasota in creating
a similar program. On
a regional level, Baylis
worked with colleagues
at the Manatee Econom-
ic Development Council
to create a collaborative
environment for serving
companies in the two


counties.
She also initiated the
Economic Gardening
program to improve
technical support for
local businesses, earning
the county the distinc-
tion of being one of only
six hubs for the statewide
Economic Gardening
program.
"Kathy has been a
remarkable leader in
forging a more collabora-
tive, diverse approach to
shaping our economy's


future," Sessions said.
"She also has been
instrumental in help-
ing businesses relocate
and expand in Sarasota
County, to bring more
and better jobs to local
residents."
Since 1995, Baylis
personally worked with
more than 215 compa-
nies that created over
7,000 value-added jobs
through expansion,
relocation or startup,
according to the EDC.


These companies
reported capital invest-
ments of more than $535
million and absorbed
5.9 million square feet
of facility space. Projects
include Boars Head,
FCCI, Aso Corp., ATI, JCI
Jones Chemical, Octex
Corp., Brooke Chase
Associates, Jackson
Hewitt Technology,
Roper Industries, United
Natural Foods, Osprey
Biotechnics and San-
born Studios.


Benderson to bid for

world rowing tourney


By GRACE GAGLIANO
BRADENTON HERALD

The World Rowing
Championships in Sara-
sota?
Benderson Develop-
ment Co. LLC believes it's
possible.
Paul Blackketter, proj-
ect manager for Bender-
son Development, says
the company plans to bid
to host the World Rowing
Championships here in
2017.
Benderson Develop-
ment is working on a
world-class rowing facil-
ity estimated to cost $30
million at Nathan Bend-
erson Park in Sarasota.
The project has already
gained $20 million in
support from Sarasota
County, and Manatee
County is developing a
complementary rowing
facility off the Manatee
River.
And the Manatee
County Tourism Develop-
ment Council indicated
last week that funds from
its tourism tax collections
could be forthcoming
when development pro-
gresses on the facility.
Blackketter said the
final phase of the row-
ing facility will cost an
estimated $10 million.
That phase will include
adding the amenities
suited to World Rowing
Championships stan-


dards such as an elite
training boathouse, a
start tower, alignment
tower, covered grand-
stands, a finishing tower
and a Jumbotron.
Benderson Develop-
ment expects to raise
about $10 million to $15
million largely from nam-
ing opportunities on the
infrastructure.
The facility's 2,000-me-
ter course, which in-
cludes eight buoyed
lanes, will open in 2012
with the world-class
amenities projected for
completion by 2014.
Elliott Falcione, ex-
ecutive director of the
Bradenton Area Conven-
tion and Visitors Bureau,
said the tourism bureau
has supported the rowing
facility by partly funding
promotional videos and
brochures.
Fifty countries com-
peted in this year's World
Rowing Championships
from Oct. 30-Nov. 7 in
Karapiro, New Zealand.
Blackketter attended
the World Rowing Cham-
pionships to market the
master planned facil-
ity and said he received
positive feedback from
the rowing teams.
"A lot of the response
was, 'It's about time the
United States is stepping
up with a true first-class
rowing course,'" Black-
ketter said.

POLICE BEAT

Double teamed

AVenice man opened his
door to a beating.
According to a Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office report,
the victim said
Travis Andrew
Croce came to his
S door and de-
manded $30 that
he accused the
l-, -victim of stealing
from him a few
CROCE days earlier. When
the victim tried to
close the door, Croce punched
him in the face and both fell
backward into the house.
The victim said Croce got on
top of him and at that time a
woman, Addie Raines Rec-
tor, entered his house. Croce
told her to get him his knife
because he was going to stab
the victim. Instead, she threw
a toaster at the victim, hitting
him.
According to the victim,
Croce then told Rector to get
a two-by-four and she hit the
victim's body with
that. He man-
aged to get up
and get the two
out of the house.
Or so he thought.
After he thought,
they were gone,
RECTOR Croce hit him in
the head with
the same two-by-four. He saw
them leave in a small, white
newer-model Lincoln.
Croce, 22, 2100 block of Park
Road, Venice, was arrested and


WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 22, 2010


charged with burglary of an
occupied dwelling with battery
and aggravated battery.
Rector, 19, of the same
address, was arrested and
charged with principal to bur-
glary of an occupied dwelling
with battery and aggravated
battery.
Neither received bond.


Too late

A warning came too late
for a victim, who received
injuries.
According to a
Sarasota County
S," Sheriff's Of-
fice report, the
i victim received
a phone call at
a local motel
DEFURIA where she was
DEFURIA staying. The
caller told her to hurry up
and get out of her room.
When she went to the
door, Stephanie Defuria,
Ronsheena Mitchell and
Destiny I. Mills entered the
room and began punching
her. They then fled down the
stairs to a tan 2007 Ford. The
victim said that as they were
getting into the Ford, Mills
grabbed a silver baseball bat
and smashed out the back
window of her sister's 2003
Dodge truck.
The victim wrote down the
Ford's tag number and called
9-1-1. She also told deputies,
Mitchell had been harassing
her because of a boy they
both dated.


The victim's sister corrobo-
rated the victim's story. The
victim had a busted lip and
numerous areas that hurt from
being hit.
Defuria, 21, 3900 block
Shamrock Drive, Venice, and
Mitchell, 20, 2900 block Maple
St., Sarasota were arrested and
charged with simple battery.
Each received a bond of $750.
Mills, 22, 900 block Soi Nana
Lane, Sarasota, was arrested
and charged with simple bat-
tery and criminal mischief. She
received no bond.


No cigarette

He wanted a cigarette. She
said "no." Trouble ensued.
According to a
Sarasota County
Sheriff's Of-
fice report, the
- victim and her
,.* '- boyfriend, Shawn
'' Thomas Pratt,
who live together,
PRATT were at the Venice
Sports Bar when
an argument between them
began over a cigarette. She
refused to give him one, so he
backhanded her in the face,
hitting her left eye.
She went outside and called
deputies. An independent
witness came forward and
corroborated her story. Depu-
ties said she was very upset
and crying and had minimal
redness around her left eye.
Pratt was arrested and
charged with domestic battery.

BUSINESS MATTERS


Keeping the town in stitches


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Despite the impact of
TV computers, DVDs and
the impending retire-
ment of the owner, a
small downtown business
founded 30 years ago will
continue to thrive when
new owners take over on
Jan. 1.
Cyndi Cefalu, owner
of Needlepoint Ivy, 101
W. Venice Ave., said, "We
were selling down big time
ready to retire at the end
of this month." Then a
customer from up north
came, in learned of the
impending closure and
decided to buy the shop.
"I walked in here one
day and she told me the
shop was going to close.
I was devastated," said
Linda Seiber, who moved
to Venice with her hus-
band from Hudson River
Valley, N.Y, in April. She
went home and asked her
husband if he would like to
buy a needlework shop.
"We thought about it
long and hard," she said. "It
just seemed like a perfect
match."
They have both been
in food service for their
entire careers and planned
to do the same in Venice.
She managed a middle
school cafeteria for many


years and owned a small
in-home baking business.
A longtime stitcher, she
began needlework at age
6 with cross-stitch and
continues to enjoy it.
Initially, Seiber intends
to keep the shop as it is
because of its success.
"Customers know what
they can get and where
to find it in the store," she
said. "Possibly at some
point in the future I will
expand a little with a new
service I do at home."
Needlepoint Ivy was
started by Judy Thomas
more than 30 years ago as
Juda's, in an arcade on West
Miami Avenue, said Cefalu.
"The gal who owned the
shop called me when I was
living on the East Coast
to say she was thinking
about selling," she said. "I
said, 'I will be right there,'
then told my husband I
had bought a shop and we
moved back to Venice.
"My grandmother, an in-
credible seamstress, taught
me to sew when I was 6,"
said Cefula.
Living in Bloomington,
Ill., she and her sister
decided to start cross-
stitching when she was 20.
She has more than 40 years
of needlework experience.
Since acquiring Needle-
point Ivy in 2003 she has
made changes, concentrat-


ing on needlepoint by add-
ing more fibers and canvas
choices and cross-stitch
frames and fabrics.
Unfortunately, young-
sters do not learn needle-
point in school, but mostly
from their grandmothers
and some mothers.
"A Brownie troop gal
from Indiana visited the
shop with her parents,
then called from her home
asking if we could help her
out for the troop," she said.
"I got it together, donating
all the goods as it was my
way of saying welcome to
the world of stitching, and
she continues to order.
There have been several
instances of Brownie and
Girl Scout leaders taking it
upon themselves to teach
needlework to their troop."
Cefalu has run classes
and an evening club for
cross-stitch and needle-
point customers, and there
several clubs in area com-
munities.
"Because there are so
few of these shops," she
said, "we have the entire
Southwest Coast of Florida,
and clients come from
Tampa and make a day of
spending on the avenue.
"During the takeover
period it will be great fun
to see the people again in
January."

Gae
Stewart


As my year as presi-
dent of the Venice Area
Board of Realtors comes
to a close at the end of
the calendar year, I am
very proud of what we,
as a group, have accom-
plished. Here are just a
few things that we have
done for our community:
We raised $11,500 for
our local Student Scholar-
ship Program through our
yard sale and golf outing.
We raised more than
$1,000 to benefit the
Florida Brain Tumor As-
sociation by sponsoring
our first baseball event
with the Charlotte Stone
Crabs.
We held the first green
expo in Venice, which


As my year as president of the
Venice Area Board of Realtors
comes to a close at the end of the
calendar year, I am very proud
of what we, as a group,
have accomplished.
Venice Area Board of Realtors President Gae Stewart


featured several "green"
companies.
We raised $1,500 for
our Habitat House with
our Hot Dogs for Habitat
event. We were on hand
to dedicate our house this
year as well.
We were recognized
with an award from the
county for our participa-
tion in the Keep Sarasota
County Beautiful pro-
gram. Our group cleaned
the Venice Jetties area.
We collected food for
the Salvation Army, print-
er cartridges for Garden
Elementary School, cell
phones for the American
Legion, coupons and toi-


letry items for our troops
overseas and will once
again fill 100 Salvation
Army Christmas stock-
ings.
I am so proud of the
accomplishments of our
members and their dedi-
cation to the board and
our community.
It has been a privilege
and an honor to serve
as the 2010 president of
the Venice Area Board of
Realtors.
Have a safe and happy
holiday season!

ing president of the Venice
Area Board of Realtors.


Longtime pros team up in new salon

It was time to move on and
get her own place, said Debbie
Meyer.
A cosmetologist for 25 years,
she has opened Hair We 'R',
800-A E. Venice Ave. in the Twin
Palms Plaza. Lisa Saucier, own-
er for 14 years of Ultra Nails &
Tanning Utopia in Venice, got
her cosmetology license and
joined Meyer.
The full-service family salon
provides precision haircutting
for women, men and children.
Services include coloring,
foils and highlighting; retouch-
ing; perms; wig and hairpiece
consultations; manicures;
pedicures; artificial nails; and
waxing. Her salon has an island
beach style with table stations,
a nail table and a pedicure
chair.


From Colchester, Conn., she
graduated hairdressing school
and become a nail techni-
cian and cosmetologist, then
opened her salon, Hair Corner.
Eight years later she moved
to Sarasota, working at a local
salon for a year before becom-
ing the hairdresser at Aston
Gardens at Pelican Pointe.

Canvas specialist
Another company has
recently opened in the new
Outdoor Center next to Bates
RV: Affordable Canvas, 1030
South U.S. 41 Bypass, owned
by Tony Shaw.
He provides canvas for
boats, bimini tops, mooring
covers, cushions and uphol-
stery. Services also include
re-sews and T-tops, custom
canvas and repair with dock-
side service. Specializing in
residential screen-rooms, and
awnings for restaurants, he
has recently fitted Ophelia's
Pasta House and Captain Ed-
die's restaurant in Nokomis.
Born and raised in Venice,
Shaw graduated Venice High


School, then spent a year
building marine docks before
attending the University of
Florida. Completing a two-
year course, he graduated as
a surveyor and then worked
with a local company.
A year and a half ago he
joined his father, Al Shaw,
who started Affordable Can-
vas in 1985. This is the fam-
ily's first retail store. In the
future he would like to make
it a larger business and hire a
few people.
Store hours are 9 a.m.-5
p.m. weekdays and Saturdays.
Call 232-1312.

Trolley success
The free Christmas trol-
ley service last weekend
was used by more than 100
people, according to Sandy
McGowan of Sandy's Design-
er Clothing.
"Everyone loved it because
it showed the four avenues,"
she said.
Expanding the downtown
shopping areas, it took pas-
sengers not just to West


Venice Avenue, but to South
Nokomis, Miami and Tampa
avenues. McGowan visited
the hotels, leaving Free Trol-
ley for the Weekend signs
displayed prominently, and
they encouraged many of the
people staying there to come
downtown.

Second location
"We are a small, family-owned
and-operated business who do
not promote sales in preference
to helping customers select the
ideal boat for them," said Todd
Garthwaite, president of Coastal
Marine Center. "And when the
sale goes through, we provide
lots of follow-up, after-sales
services, maintenance and even
help them name their boat.
The business recently ex-
panded to a second location at
1030 South U.S. 41 Bypass in the
Bates RV Outdoor Center.
It is a factory-authorized
premier MerCruiser Center,
assisting with buying, trading
and consigning all sizes of boats.
Sales representative Dave Sum-
merour manages the new office.


FromWatertown, Conn.,
Garthwaite's family moved to
Venice in 1969. After attending
Venice High School, he worked
with local marinas. Fulfilling his
dream in 1986, he launched his
own boat service business with a
pick-up truck, tools and boating
knowledge.
Two years later he opened
Coastal Marine Center, 350
BuenaVista Drive.
To his dismay, Mercury
refused to authorize him
initially because he was not on
the water. Seven years later, as
business increased, it gave him
the license.
"The new bypass location is
doing well and I have hired help
for both stores," said Garthwaite.
Business hours are 9 a.m.-5
p.m. Monday through Satur-
day. Call 485-9500.

FBI: DNA backlog now cleared


By BETH BURGER
BRADENTON HERALD
A backlog of more than
295,000 federal prisoners'
DNA in an FBI database
has been eliminated, ac-
cording to FBI officials.
"The FBI laboratory has
been aggressively pursu-
ing proactive measures to
address the massive growth
of federal offender samples
following legislative chang-
es in 2001, 2004 and 2005,"
said FBI Special Agent Ann
Todd from the public affairs
office in Quantico, Va. "In
September, the FBI labora-
tory successfully elimi-
nated the federal offender
backlog.
"Further, new offender
samples, currently being
accepted by the labora-
tory, are processed and
uploaded into the National
DNA Index System within
30 days."
Law enforcement
authorities in Manatee
have acknowledged that
the Aug. 3, 2009, slaying of
Kathleen Briles in her Terra
Ceia home might have been
prevented without that
backlog.
For months, the backlog
hampered efforts to iden-
tify Delmer Smith III as a
suspect in an earlier series
of home invasion attacks
in Manatee and Sarasota
counties.


Smith was charged with
Briles' slaying in February,
one year after investigators
in Sarasota County found
DNA evidence at one of the
earlier crime scenes. But
it wasn't until after Smith
was arrested in the Briles
cases that the material was
matched with him because
Smith, whose DNA was
sampled while he was in
prison for bank robbery,
was part of the FBI backlog.
U.S. Rep. Vern Buchan-
an, R-Sarasota, who met
with the FBI and Federal
Bureau of Prisons con-
cerning the backlog, now
hopes to have a system
in place to guarantee all
federal offenders' DNA is
entered into the FBI da-
tabase when they enter
prison.
"I applaud the FBI
for clearing their back-
log," he said. "But we
still need the Bureau of
Prisons to bring their
DNA database up to date.
I will continue to work
with both federal agen-
cies to ensure that DNA
evidence is available in
a timely manner to help
prevent violent crimes in
the future."
Lawrence Kobilinsky, a
DNA expert and a profes-
sor at John Jay School of
Criminal Justice in New
York, commended the FBI's
efforts to clear the backlog.


"That is astonishing they
were able to catch up so
quickly," he said. "When
you think about the number
of personnel involved, the
equipment and the labora-
tory space and all of the
overhead involved to do
that, that's quite a task."
The Bureau of Prisons
and the FBI have developed
a plan to eliminate the
backlog entirely by the end
of June 2011, Buchanan
said. Meanwhile, the Bu-
reau of Prisons has assured
Buchanan it will continue
to ensure that all inmates
subject to testing have a
DNA sample taken prior to
their release from custody.
Kobilinsky said high
prison numbers warrant
the need for a set process
to ensure all offenders
have DNA collected. He
said that every time laws
change on who to in-
clude in DNA collection,
it can create a backlog of
samples if proper resourc-
es aren't in place.
"When you have a
criminal who is not in the
database, they are free to
commit further crimes
until they get caught," he
said. "That's why it's not a
very popular thing to have
a large backlog of cases."
At the state level, Florida
Department of Law En-
forcement's DNA database
in November documented


379 matches, the highest
number of hits in a single
month since its inception
in 1989.
The state DNA database
contains more than 700,000
samples and receives an av-
erage of 7,000 new samples
each month. The state
database interfaces with the
FBI's CODIS, enabling com-
parisons of DNA profiles
between state databases.
"Over the last two de-
cades, we've documented
more than 16,000 hits,"
said Crime Lab Analyst
Supervisor Chris Camey,
who heads up Florida's
database. "The database is
an amazing combination of
science and technology and
it's become one of the most
effective tools available to
law enforcement for solving
crime."
Florida law requires
offenders convicted of a
felony and certain misde-
meanors to submit a DNA
sample to the DNA data-
base.
On average, it takes 18
days for a sample to be
entered into the system,
Carney said.
Smith is set to go to trial
in the Briles case on July
7 in Manatee County. If
convicted, he could be sen-
tenced to death. He is slated
to stand trial on numerous
home invasion charges in
Sarasota County on Feb. 7.


CUT: Mayor considers ending televised council meetings


FROM PAGE 1
up again at the Jan. 11
meeting with an eye on
entertaining a formal
motion to eliminate the
service at the Jan. 25
meeting if other council
members agree.
But first he wants to hear
what the public has to say.


"We have no idea how
many people view this,"
Holic said. "The purpose
of this is to throw it out
there. Hopefully, people
will come to us and say,
'Hey, wait. I really use
it,' or if we hear noth-
ing, then we are going to
get an idea of how many
people are viewing and


using this."
During the public com-
ment portion of the Dec.
14 meeting, resident Tom
Brener said he supported
keeping the service. He
suggested retasking a
current employee with
the responsibility, even if
it results in a product of
lesser quality.


"We are looking at al-
ternatives," Holic said.
Residents with an
opinion either way can
let the city know by send-
ing an e-mail to market-
ing and communications
officer Pam Johnson at

The permit fee re-
imbursement will be a
one-time opportunity,
Slaughter said.
The city also agreed
to expedite all permit
applications, with the
intent to issue permits
on the same day as the


application is made. The
expedited permits will
require no plan review.
The city will also pro-
vide a courtesy inspec-
tion at no additional cost
to guide homeowners
through the inspection
process.
Staff will monitor and
provide regular reports
to the city manager on all
waivers.
Defective Chinese
drywall was imported
into the United States
from 2001-08. Scientists
documented that heat
and humidity cause
the defective drywall to


release gases that cause
a noxious odor and cor-
rode copper and other
metal surfaces. Victims
report damaged air
conditioners, electrical
wiring, copper plumb-
ing, appliances and
other electronics. Some
have reported physical
ailments related to the
gases.
Few homeowners have
been able to recover
costs associated with
drywall remediation
through their developer
or insurance carrier.

NEW: Market head changes


FROM PAGE 1
"If it was not for Linda,
I would not have my stu-
dio teaching painting,"
she said. "It's because of
growth there that I now
have 30 students. I thank
her for what she has
done."
The outpouring of sup-
port was in response to
criticism of the market by
a local business owner.
Susan Nelson, who
owns The Straw Hat,
previously said the
market was allowing
some vendors to sell
products similar if not
identical to those she
sells at her store, creating
unfair competition with
local business owners,
although local business
organizations say that
just isn't true.
But Nelson said other
business owners have
aired similar complaints.
Last Tuesday, Nelson
again spoke to council,
but didn't bring up the
issue of unfair competi-
tion. Instead, she criti-
cized the city for granting
perks.
The farmers market
manager, who runs the
for-profit endeavor, is
given free space at the
market in her contract.
"I don't understand
that. We should all be
treated equally," Nelson
said. "Please treat every
merchant the same. We
are all trying to make a
living."


Tim Copper said he
helped start the St.
Petersburg farmers
market and wanted to
throw his hat into the
ring and run the mar-
ket. He asked whether
the city was required
to seek competitive
bids. No one knew the
answer, and Mayor John
Holic directed staff to
research the matter.
"I appreciate there are
others who are inter-
ested in managing the
farmers market," said
Vice Mayor Kit McKeon.
"In the future that
might be appropriate.
Right now (I'd rather)
go with the best-value
approach. In this case,
it seems to me we have
a seamless transition
with a proven manager
that is doing well by the
city and supported by
local merchants very
strongly."
Council unanimously
agreed to allow Wilson to
take over the market.
If it turns out bidding
is necessary, that will be
revisited. In the end it
might not help Copper,
however. Council also
directed staff to draft an
ordinance giving prefer-
ential treatment to local
businesses.
Others spoke in favor
of expanding the market.
Wilson said she'll consid-
er that option if business
picks up.

PAY: Future road costs eyed


FROM PAGE 1
Bypass is the Sarasota/
Manatee MPO's top
priority, and has been
a priority for about 13
years. Venice officials re-
cently stated their desire
that the entire bypass
be widened to six lanes.
But that is not financially
feasible. Instead the
Bypass will be six lanes
wide from Bird Bay Drive
to Gulf Coast Boulevard
and four lanes wide from


Gulf Coast to Center
Road. The latter segment
likely will include an
improved Center Road
intersection - possibly a
roundabout - plus new
lighting, better side-
walks, bicycle lanes and
landscaping.

Opportunity, in good time, at the Springs


So, what's next for Warm Mineral
Springs?
For the time being, we'd be con-
tent to sit back and appreciate the gift
our fellow taxpayers bought this holiday
season:
* A top-flight historical and archeologi-
cal site, unique in Florida.
* Eighty-one acres, much of it a nature
preserve. A 1.4-acre, mineral-rich pond,
a natural hot tub that remains a constant
87 degrees.
* Springs and a spa that have drawn
100,000 visitors a year. A place that drew
thousands of mineral-spa devotees from
Russia and Ukraine in recent years and
persuaded them to make North Port their
home. A place that could attract even
more attention if marketed correctly.
* A brand for the city of North Port. A
health resort linked with the idea of eco-
tourism.
Appreciate it, and soon North Port and
Sarasota County will get to work figur-
ing out the next steps in utilizing Warm


Mineral Springs to its potential. That's one
of the benefits of the deal worked out by
county, the city and Cypress Lending Ltd.
Cypress will continue to operate the
day spa for the next 30 months, so the
public should see no difference. And the
new public owners have set a deadline of
two years to develop a long-range plan.
Here are some things to keep in mind
going forward.
* This is the gateway to North Port. Yes,
we knowWest Villages is in North Port,
not Venice. But Warm Mineral Springs
represents the real gateway from the
south on U.S. 41. Let's make that clear.
For one thing, the place needs better
signs from the south. We like the retro
arrow on Ortiz Boulevard, and love the
retro Old Florida look of the Warm Min-
eral Springs Motel, but something else is
needed to draw attention.
* Think about a roundabout at the Or-
tiz-U.S. 41 intersection. Yes, we've heard
all the knee-jerk reactions to roundabouts
before, but one here would serve to slow


traffic to a nice, even flow while drawing
attention to the springs entrance. It's a
perfect gateway feature. You'll learn to
navigate it in no time.
* Ortiz Boulevard must be improved.
When the springs was privately owned,
there was no overwhelming call to
upgrade the road. Owned by the public,
it is now clearly in the public interest to
create a more impressive entrance to the
park.
The road is awful. It is blighted. Two
lanes are fine, but they should be wid-
ened. Sidewalks and bike lanes should
lead to the health spa. The entire stretch
should be landscaped as a boulevard.
We'd like to see canopy trees.
Then, there is a list of questions:
* What will the park look like? Should
there be a small natural amphitheater for
concerts? Picnic pavilions? Or should it be
left alone, with only walking paths?
* What should be done to spruce up the
day spa, if anything?
* According to the current contract,


all Sarasota County residents will get an
admission discount of at least 25 per-
cent. (Daily adult passes are $20.) Is that
enough?
* Will a portion of the property be set
aside for a new hotel-spa? And what
needs to be done on U.S. 41 to encourage
related development?
* How can North Port and Sarasota
County best use the property for commu-
nity events? What types of city functions
would fit? Who will take the lead?
* How will the public be included in
the planning throughout the process? Ac-
cording to city-county documents, there
will be public meetings, naturally. But
should parks advisory boards or special
ad hoc committees get in on the ground
floor?
* And, of course, how will we pay for
any improvements?
All to be worked out in coming months.
For now, Warm Mineral Springs is an
asset in hand and an opportunity for the
future.

Light up. Please join your
neighbors by putting out
luminaries on Dec. 24. The
bags are about 12 cents, or use
tea lights or small candles in
glass containers. And to those
who don't participate, don't
water on Dec. 23. At those
temperatures, water does not
evaporate. Thank you to those
who participate in this festive
event, and thank you to those
who leave their sprinklers off
on Thursday, Dec. 23. Merry
Christmas and happy holidays.
For a buck. I would like to
wish you and your staff a very
merry Christmas for the won-
derful job you are doing for the
Gondolier Sun. I look forward
to reading it, but I have one
complaint this morning. I wish
they would bring into Venice a
dollar movie theater. We have
to pay $6.50 to see a movie and
money is tight. It would be just
wonderful if we could have a
dollar movie theater and then
everything is a two-for-one.
I'm a widow. I'm just one per-
son, so I don't come under all
those nice gratuities that they
give out. But anyway, I'm get-
ting along, and I'm very lucky.
Keep up the good work.
No new rules. I'd like to
comment on people saving
spaces for parade viewing.
We don't need the city of
Venice to place more restric-
tions, especially on some-
thing like a parade. There are
already too many laws and
restrictions, amendments
and resolutions. So please,
no, the city does not need
to do that. I think that is a
unique character quality of a
small town, and we need to
preserve it. I was impressed
when I first came to Venice
33 years ago and saw people
putting out their chairs trust-
ing that no one would take
them. When I came from
Detroit, you didn't dare put
anything out there. It was
gone. I think it's wonderful
that people put their chairs
out. That they're there to


Have It
support the parade, that
they're going to be there. It's
the older people that put
the chairs out because they
need a place to sit down. The
younger people can stand
behind those chairs or sit
on the pavement in front of
the chairs. Let's preserve our
small-town atmosphere.
On Friday. Putting the chairs
out early for the parade? I for
one do that and every year it
seems like we have to do it
a day or two earlier than the
year before, which I think is
ridiculous. I definitely think it
clutters and detracts from the
beautiful downtown that we
have, for the visitors that are
here for the holidays. I person-
ally feel the earliest it should
be is Friday morning maybe at
8 a.m. If they set that and kept
to it - that everyone could
go down there on Friday and
set up their chairs - or even
Friday afternoon - that would
be plenty of time for Saturday.
I would like to see that and
thought of it before I saw your
article in the paper, and I defi-
nitely would vote for anything
in that regard.
Double standard. I want to
make a comment on the recent


arrests over on Harbor near
the post office for indecent
exposure. We all know what
they were doing and yes, it
was very inappropriate. It is
what it is. If it was a hetero-
sexual couple, they would be
told to knock it off. If it's a gay
couple, they go to jail, get their
names on the front page of the
paper and also become sexual
predators. It seems like it's a
double standard. Personally,
I think it's unfortunate that
we live in a country where it's
more acceptable to see a man
carry guns around than hold
another man's hand. It's just
too bad.
On a roll. I have read about
new roller-skating rinks in
Naples and elsewhere in
Florida. What a great idea for
the circus building. Is it big
enough? All we need is a good
floor and organ music. Old
and young could enjoy good,
clean fun. Someone, give this
a thought. People would flock
there just to watch and maybe
buy refreshments. Let's go.
Yes, it is. In another paper
someone asked, is it still prop-
er to blame President Bush for
our problems? Well, the simple
answer is, you betcha.
Ring, ring. Perhaps it's
time for the athletic director
at Venice High School to call
Mr. Wheatley and ask him
where he plans to coach next
year.
Cut! Televising Venice City
Council meetings is a luxury
and should be postponed, as
Mayor Holic has suggested.
I look forward to seeing that
saving. If someone wants
to get a copy of the council
meeting, get an audio disc;
and if they read the newspa-
per, they can see the results
of what's going on. Let's get
rid of that instead of another
employee. Also, the issue of
parking restrictions: It should
be year-round. It's not just a
winter thing. I would definitely
like to see the city enforce the
parking.

I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Wendi was wonderful

Editor:
On Nov. 10, I left my purse on
Bus 13. As I stood bewildered,
not knowing what to do, in the
post office parking lot, Wendi
Leach asked if I needed help.
When I explained, she knew just
what to do. She called the dis-
patcher and had my purse taken
to the depot. She then took me
to the depot to get it.
She has my sincere thanks and
gratitude for being so kind.

Season binds us all together

Editor:
At this time of year, as the sun
journeys to its farthest point
away from the Earth and then
starts to return, let us know that
it is a gift to us of renewal and
repetition.
This eternal return of the sun
calls us to profound acceptance


of continuity; of that which
celebrates birth, death, and
rebirth of all existence; of matter
continually being formed and
re-formed; of that which affirms
that nothing is ever lost.
Truly, this cosmological hap-
pening is a reality not circum-
scribed by any culture or epoch.
The dying to the old and the
birthing into the new is illus-
trated throughout the world's
religions: Christians confess their
sins, the ancient Hebrews and
Babylonians were relieved of
their faults by driving a scape-
goat into the desert, Hindus
cleanse their spirits by bathing
in the Ganges, Muslims make a
pilgrimage to Mecca.
It is ritual we make at the
closing of the year - biding the
old adieu, greeting the new - in
whatever way we participate
in this seasonal event: solstice,
Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Divali or
Christmas.
Such is this wintry event of
the sun's journey, an event that
unites us with all who ever lived
or shall live. Our various tradi-


tions celebrate this, stating that
we are not orphans in a cold,
unfeeling universe, but that we
are connected to those who went
before us and will add our own
measure of uniqueness before
returning to the elements that
created us.
This then is the peace and the
joy of the season.

Not the biggest crime around

Editor:
In regard to the sting targeting
gays at Caspersen Beach, when
was the last time the police did
a sting targeting heterosexuals
having sex on the beach and in
their cars? Never. When was the
last time they arrested a topless
woman at the beach? Never.
These gay men are there
mostly late at night when there
are no families and no one else
there but them. I would feel


much safer if the police would
use their resources and our tax
dollars doing something produc-
tive, like ticketing speeders and
people on cell phones when
driving. They might even save


a life, not to mention pr
revenue for the city.
Most nights when I g

Give the gift of reading for the holidays


By LAYSHA WARD
GUEST COLUMNIST

With the holidays fast ap-
proaching, many Americans
are in search of the latest and
greatest children's gifts to place
under the tree. But amid all the
dolls, gadgets and superheroes,
there's one gift that, more than
any other, can make a profound
difference in the life of a child -
the gift of reading.
The holiday season is the
perfect time to begin reading
regularly with a child you care
about. Those few minutes every
day will help awaken a young
mind - and will make a real
difference in that child's life, and
the future of our nation.
It's important to start early. Re-
search shows that reading during
the K-3 years is critical because
it is the time when most children
make the transition from learn-
ing to read to reading to learn.
In other words, this is when chil-
dren learn the most important
skill that helps prepare them for


success later in school and life.
Children who read at grade level
when they enter fourth grade
are more likely to graduate from
high school than those who fall
behind.
Ralph Smith of the Annie E.
Casey Foundation - an or-
ganization serving America's
most vulnerable families and
children - puts it succinctly:
"Poor reading-test scores are
profoundly disappointing to all
of us who see school success
and high-school graduation as
beacons in the battle against
intergenerational poverty."
In America today, the chal-
lenge is enormous. According
to the latest U.S. Department
of Education data, one in four
American children does not
graduate from high school on
time, if ever.
For minority students, the
picture is especially grim. While
the 81 percent of white children
who graduate high school is far
from ideal, only 64 percent of
American Indian students finish


their studies. And almost 40
percent of Hispanic and African-
American students never receive
a diploma. If that's not disturbing
enough, consider that these kids
will be entering a workforce in
which 75 percent of job openings
will require some post-secondary
education.
Former Secretary of State
Colin Powell, founding chair of
America's Promise Alliance, a
group dedicated to educational
excellence among U.S. youth,
provides a strong case for action.
"When more than a million
students a year fail to graduate
with their class, it's more than
a problem; it's a catastrophe,"
Powell said. "Our economy and
national security are at risk when
we fail to educate the leaders and
the work force of the future."
Like Powell, we at Target Corp.
believe that giving America's
students a good education, and
especially a strong foundation of
reading skills, is essential to our
country's long-term success. We
are committed to helping more


U.S. children read proficiently by
the end of third grade.
In fact, since 1946 we have
given 5 percent of our income to
support local communities. To-
day that giving places a special
focus on education and equals
more than $3 million per week.
We recently announced plans to
donate more than $500 million
to education by the end of 2015,
which will more than double
our investment in education to
date.
From donating books and
sponsoring school field trips
through the Target Field Trip
Grants program, to Take Charge
of Education, a program in
which Target donates money to
schools chosen by our guests,
to the Target School Library
Makeover program, through
which Target volunteers trans-
form school libraries across the
country, Target is committed
to doing our part. But we know
that solving the education crisis
in America will take all of us -
companies, nonprofit organiza-


tions, government and engaged
citizens - working together.
As a minority woman, and
the first member of my family
to graduate from college, I
know firsthand the impor-
tance of a good education.
I am both humbled and
inspired every time I sit down
to read with a child or partici-
pate in one of Target's educa-
tion activities.
So spread the joy. Be that par-
ent, grandparent, aunt or uncle
who reads with the child in your
life, or become the caring adult
who volunteers to read regularly
with a child in your neighbor-
hood. Reading to children trig-
gers a lifelong love of learning
and reading - and it puts smiles
on young faces.
Let's all do our part to put our
kids on the path to graduation,
so they can lead our country to a
brighter future.

Venice pounds Southeast


Sheepies are

hanging close
Where do saltwater
catfish go when the water
is clear? Think about it:
Only when the Gulf of
Mexico and Intracoastal
Waterway are churned
up do we seem to catch
them. It's not like I'm
going to try to find them.
Hopefully, they will stay
away from our area.
The sheepshead fishing
has been a bit better than
normal for December.
The live fiddlers are hard
to find since we've had
so many cold mornings.
The frozen ones work but
maybe not like the live
ones. The cooked frozen
sand fleas will also do in-
stead of the hard-to-find
live ones.
Remember to look for
the sheepies in or near a
structure. A small bobber
will decrease your chanc-
es of getting hung up. If
you're fishing the jetties,
don't cast too far out as
most of the sheepies are
in or near the rocks and
boulders.
Another fish around
our area is the black
drum. They love sand
fleas. If they are in the
area, maybe switch to a
larger hook and load it
with sand fleas. Some
of the black drum can
be 15 to 20 pounds. The
15- to 17-inchers are the
best eating as most of the
larger ones are loaded
with worms.
The jack crevalle are
also around and they
will bite on shrimp and
most lures. They are great
fighters and will come
up to the beach chasing
bait. This is the time of
the year that the 12- to
18-pounders appear.
With luck, the pom-
pano will finally show up.
They are around, but not

Venice's Juliana Cavallaro was
a 13-year-old seventh-grader
the last time the Lady Indians
picked up a win against South-
east.
Cavallaro and teammate
Laura Hackett have never won
against the Lady Seminoles.
This all changed on Tuesday
night as the duo combined
for 45 points to lead the Lady
Indians to a dominating 53-29
win over Southeast at Southeast
High in Bradenton.
It was nearly five years to
the day since Venice got a win
against Southeast. The last time
was Dec. 22, 2006.
Venice's win broke a streak
of seven straight losses to the
Seminoles. It is only the second
win against Southeast in their
last 18 meetings. In fact, Venice
has only won five times over the
Lady Seminoles in the last 22
meetings dating back to 1997.
"It means everything," said
Venice coach John Flynn about
the win. "For us to come in
and win against this program.
Southeast, in their gym, by that
kind of score. I don't think that's
been done a lot in the last few
years, I tell you that. I'm am so
proud of the girls."
Southeast entered the game
with a 10-1 record and nine-
game winning streak.
Cavallaro poured in 27 points,
including 10-of-12 from the
foul line, and Hackett tallied 19
points for the Lady Indians.
Venice fell behind 3-2 with
4:46 left in the first quarter.
It was all Venice from that
point.
"It feels awesome," said Caval-
laro. "Southeast has always been
a goal for us since our freshman
year. It feels really good to win it

Venice's Sydney Wor-
sham, a transfer from
Mother McAuley High
in Chicago, more than
doubled her scoring
output in one day as the
Lady Indians concluded
the Venice Girls Soccer
Invitational with victo-
ries over Gainesville and
North Port on Monday
at Venice High's Powell-
Davis Stadium.
Coming off a two-goal
performance in a 3-2 win
over Gainesville, Wor-
sham followed it up with
another two goals as the
Lady Indians got some
much-needed revenge
against county rival North
Port with a 3-0 victory.
Against North Port,
Worsham didn't need
much time to score.
Worsham got into
the game with 24 min-
utes left in the score-
less first half. Senior
Dana LaRocque found
her behind the defense
on a perfect left cross.
Worsham's shot slid past
North Port keeper Sierra
Jennings just inside the
near post in the 17th
minute to give Venice a
1-0 lead.
"It was just a nice


them from the get-go."
Venice (11-2) scored the final
nine points of the first quarter,
with seven coming from Caval-
laro.
Venice's defense has been the
key of late for the Lady Indians.
In their last three games, the
Lady Indians have only allowed
eight, nine and now 11 field
goals the entire game.


"I think the key that helped us
was definitely our defense," said
Cavallaro. "If we play defense,
we knew our offense was going
to come and we were going to
get the open shot. Focus on our
help side (defense) and boxing
out."
Venice limited Southeast to
four points in the second half
and took a 20-7 lead into half-


time.
The fact Venice hadn't beaten
Southeast in so many years gave
the Lady Indians a little more
motivation, according to Caval-
laro.
Southeast cut the deficit to 10
points but Venice continued to
dominate in the third quarter.

Worsham. "She's a good
player."
"Sydney is a great
kid," said Venice coach
Gary Bolyard. "She gives
us high energy. Things
happen when she is out
there. Very nice addition
(to the team). Great kid,
nice hustle, great to have
her come off the bench
and give us some energy
out on the field. She is
very aggressive and very
fast."
Only three minutes
later, the same combina-


tion worked as LaRocque
dribbled the ball down
the field and found Wor-
sham behind the defense
on the left wing. Wor-
sham's shot found the
back of the net inside the
near post to give Venice a
2-0 lead 20 minutes into
the match. It was her
sixth goal of the season.
With just two minutes
remaining in the first
half, it was LaRocque's
turn to score as the for-
ward found the back of
the net for her 10th goal
of the season.
On the goal, Alex Trujic
brought the ball up the
field to Tori Bolyard, who
got the ball close to the
North Port goal. Bolyard
crossed to LaRocque on
the right wing, who right-
footed the shot into the
far lower corner.
Venice (8-3-4) domi-
nated play in each half.
The Lady Indians outshot
North Port 14-1 in the
first half; the one shot by
the Lady Bobcats (12-3-
1) was a weak one.
North Port's best


chance to score occurred
in the 70th minute. Off
a corner kick, Michelle
Guillen's shot in front of
the goal bounced off the
crossbar. The defense
then cleared the ball to
prevent a goal.
In total, Venice had a
20-4 edge in shots.
Senior goalkeeper
Ashley Weaver notched
the shutout with just two
saves.
"The game wasn't too
much different than the
last game," said Bolyard.
"We just had shots go in
the goal. We were real
heavy on shots last time
and gave up two shots on
goal. Today we put some
balls in the net."
On Dec. 1, North Port
used a late goal to force a
1-1 tie against Venice.
"We were really upset
about the last match
(against North Port),"
said Worsham. "We were
kind of heated up to
come out here and win
one back. We were just
a lot more focused and
wanted it a lot more. We


were connecting passes
a lot better and playing
back. Doing a good job
on offense and defense."
The Lady Indians return
to action on Jan. 4 with
their last regular-season
home match of the season
against Lakewood Ranch.
Venice ends the season
with matches at Charlotte
on Jan. 7 and Lakewood
Ranch on Jan. 11.
"We've got a lot of stuff
to work on," said Coach
Bolyard. "We have to
tighten up things in the
next couple of weeks
before districts come. We
are getting there. Girls
are starting to commu-
nicate and talk to each
other and get dialed in."

Foreclosed homes used to scam renters


By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER

The man cut the bolted locks
on the doors of a foreclosed
home, then ditched the for-sale
sign. Then he placed a for-rent
ad online on craigslist. Shortly
after, he rented the home to an
unsuspecting woman in North
Port.
According to the North Port
Police Department, the vic-
tim recently signed a poorly
worded contract riddled with
grammatical errors and handed
over $5,600 in security depos-
its and rent. After only a few
months of living at the house,
she was surprised when a pro-
cess server came to the door to
evict her.
"There are several huge
red flags in this case," said
North Port Police Detective
Larry Strejcek, who investigates
economic crimes. "First, it was
a five-year rental agreement.
Second, there were many mis-
takes throughout the contract.
She was asked for cash and not
checks for each month's rent."
Another red flag should have
been that the landlord was
using a prepaid phone number
from Michigan when he con-
tacted her to see the house.
While he continues working
on the case, Strejcek said the
victim is likely out the majority
of her money.
With 5,192 foreclosure filings
in Sarasota County and 2,400 in
Charlotte County from January
to November, Strejcek said this
scam could continue and flour-
ish for years, but will be costly
for unsuspecting victims.
"People should never agree
to rent a home without proof
of ownership," he said, adding
that each county has a prop-
erty appraiser's Web site on
which potential renters can
check to see who owns the
property. "If the bank owns it
or it's in a trust, the potential
renter can ask the landlord
why their name isn't on the
property or tax roll."
Local Realtor Tony Gustitus
of Century 21 Almar & Associ-
ates in North Port agrees with


Strejcek's recommendations
for renters.
"A renter should ask a lot
of questions and see if the
landlord slips up," he said. "Ask
if the landlord is willing to give
a copy of their driver's license.
The renter should not give up
their Social Security number.
They should check the prop-
erty tax Web site to see who is
paying property taxes. If the
bank owns the house, then ask
why would someone else be
trying to rent it out?"
If the bank owns the house,
then it supersedes any lease,
Gustitus said.
Gustitus said rental agree-
ments are usually from year
to year and may include an
increase stated in the con-
tract. He said a five-year rental
agreement lease is extremely
unusual and should be consid-
ered a red flag.
Because there are so few
agents handling the high vol-
ume of foreclosures in the two
counties, some never visit the
property.
Many Realtors or banks keep
the electricity and water on to
show the homes, so it's easier
for a scammer to rent out the
home, Gustitus said.
"Some out-of-town agents
will pay someone $10 or $20 to
take a picture of the property
and put up the for-sale sign,"
Gustitus said. "Banks are such
poor managers of property
that they create inefficiencies,
like not checking on the house
for months, that it can open
the door to scam artists. The
out-of-town agents aren't even
giving virtual tours. It would
show if someone was living
there illegally."
One Sarasota man recently
was arrested for renting out
foreclosed homes.
Joel McNair, 60, was charged
with fraud in the theft of two
houses.
He allegedly rented a three-
bedroom home valued at
$650,000 on Siesta Key, and an-
other home valued at $179,000.
In court, McNair said
Florida's law on adverse pos-
session from 1869 allows him

North Port Police Detective Larry Strejcek, who investigates economic
crimes, says he has been working with victims who have been scammed
after renting homes that were foreclosed on. Another woman purchased a
car online, but it never arrived.


to take over a property if it is
abandoned for seven years.
That's true, however, only if
the person claiming owner-
ship does so under a defective
legal document. Otherwise
the period is 20 years, and the
purported owner has to act
like the owner for the entire
period.
It's illegal to rent a home
that's not yours, Strejcek said.
"It is grand theft of the
house," he said. "Even the
victim may end up having
problems in some cases be-
cause they have to prove they
didn't know the house was
not owned by the landlord or
rental company.
"I'm concerned people are
falling for many different
scams right now and they are
becoming victims," Strejcek
said. "We would rather people
call us and ask questions or,
in this case, call a real estate
agent or even (an) attorney's
office and ask a few questions
before signing a contract or
turning over cash."


Another scam Strejcek said
is hitting the region is vehicle
identification fraud.
He is working a case in
which the victim paid $4,500
- less than half of the Kelley
Blue Book value - for a fully
loaded 2006 Chevy Equinox.
The victim was told by the
seller she would take care of
the out-of-state shipping. The
seller claimed she was going
back to Afghanistan soon to
serve in the military and had
to sell the car quickly.
The scam artist stole a ve-
hicle ID from a car in Wash-
ington and created a fake
Carfax vehicle report on it. The
vehicle history was listed on
Craigslist. However, the victim
was told to make the payment
for the vehicle to the Trust and
Security Department of eBay.
"The e-mail from the scam-
mer was from a Yahoo (e-mail)
account," Strejcek said. "None
of this made sense. There is
no Trust and Security Depart-
ment of eBay. It just sounds
official. Also, eBay has aWeb


site where people can sell
cars. So the e-mail from the
seller should have come from
a real eBay account and not a
Yahoo account. And the victim
first found the vehicle on
Csraigslist, so why would the
seller want her to pay through
eBay?"
Despite all of the discrepan-
cies, the victim still sent the
money.
When Strejcek ran the ID
number of the car that the
victim never received, he found
it was registered to a person in
Washington. The victim was told
the car was coming from New
York. The Chevy's owner said the
vehicle was not for sale.
Common sense has to play a
part in decision making when
parting with money, Strejcek
said.
"If it's too good to be true,
then it probably is, and you
should not waste time or
money on it," he said. "It's
always a good idea to pick up
the phone and call us and ask
for guidance. In many cases,
we have been told about what
seems like a scam. We can tell
people if others have had simi-
lar experiences.
"Many people have got-
ten calls to send money to
Nigeria. Please stop sending
money there, especially if
you do not have any relatives
there. You have not won any
money from there, especially
if you haven't entered any-
thing there."
Victims should not be
ashamed of coming forward
and registering a complaint.
"I would rather officers
check on details for people
before they buy something,
like a car that seems too good
to be true, rather than them
becoming a victim," he said.
"Most law enforcement agen-
cies are willing to run aVIN
number or review facts with
a person before they open
their wallet and give away
their hard-earned money.
Criminals today are extremely
sophisticated. They work hard
on outsmarting people."

Joan Cannariato of Se-
nior Pets 4 Senior Friends
and Cheryl Keenan,
owner of PawPrint Es-
sentials, have teamed up
to help seniors who are
having a difficult time
making ends meet to feed
their dogs.
Cannariato took over
the nonprofit organiza-
tion at Rabbi Ann White's
request. The organiza-
tion was created to pair
seniors who needed a
special friend with older
dogs and cats that needed
loving homes.
White began Senior
Pets with help from Mad-
die's Fund, an organiza-
tion based in California
in loving memory of
a couple's miniature
schnauzer who enriched
their lives for 10 years.
Maddie's Fund, also a
nonprofit, was endowed
with $300 million and by
the end of fiscal year 2008
had spent more than $71
million to save the lives of
dogs and cats.

received a $1,000 grant
from Maddie's Fund.
When Cannariato read a
story about a senior wom-
an who didn't have money
to buy food for herself, let
alone her dog, Cannariato
knew how she wanted to
spend the grant.
She purchased 20 $50
gift certificates from
PawPrint Essentials. Now
she is asking the com-
munity to submit names
of seniors who are having
trouble feeding their dogs
and cats.


"It's on the honor
system," Cannariato said.
"I'm trusting that people
won't take advantage and
submit someone's name
who can afford to buy
their pet food."
A random drawing will
be held to choose the
winners. The 20 win-
ners will receive their gift
certificates at PawPrint
Essentials on Jan. 12, at 4
p.m., during a celebration
at the store.
Keenan decided to
sweeten the winners' cer-
tificates by offering them


a 50 percent discount on
their first bag of food.
"This will allow the
winners to get a pretty big
bag of food," Cannariato
said.
Entries of deserving
senior pet lovers having
trouble feeding their furry
friends can be e-mailed to
Cannariato at Nrsej25@

include the senior's

SHOULDER PAIN


DR. DAN BUSCH, DR. ERENE ROMANSKI
CHIROPRACTOR
If you've been suffering from pain in the
shoulder, you may be able to benefit from
treatment by your doctor of chiropractic.
One of the most common causes of shoulder
pain is bursitis or inflammation of the bursa,
These are small, soft tissue sacs that contain a
lubricating fluid which forms a cushion
between adjoining tissues in a joint structure
as well as between bones and muscles.
Among the causes of bursitis are injury
and interference with the nerve supply. When


this happens, the protective lubricant tends to
thicken and become gritty. This may cause
the joint to become swollen, stiff, and
painful.
In treating this condition your doctor of
chiropractic may manipulate the shoulder
muscles. He may also examine the
corresponding neurological levels of the
spine, such as the lower part of the neck and
upper part of the back, to correct any
misalignments that may be contributing to
the problem.

Mother's message of hope inspires women


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR

The loss of a child is every
parent's worst nightmare.
For some, that loss may be
while the child is still alive but
far removed from a normal
existence.
In October 1999, Carol Kent
got the dreaded midnight
phone call that shattered her
happy, "normal" life. The call
informed her and her hus-
band, Gene, that their 25-year-
old son, Jason, a newly mar-
ried, recent graduate of the
U.S. Naval Academy, had been
arrested for murdering his
wife's former husband.
"My legs didn't work, so I
crawled to my office phone
while Gene was on the other
line," Kent told a group of 260
women at the Ladies Christmas
Dinner sponsored by First Bap-
tist Church of Venice Nov. 30.
"I talked to myself ... 'Breathe
... Do the next thing,'" she said,
reliving her reaction to the
shocking news.
Jason, fearful the man would
sexually abuse his two step-
daughters, shot him dead in
the parking lot of an Orlando
restaurant. The action led
to Jason's arrest, two-and-a-
half-year trial and first-degree
murder conviction, resulting in
a life sentence being served in
the Hardee Correctional Insti-
tution in Bowling Green, Fla.
Since that fateful night,
Carol and Gene relocated to
Lakeland, Fla., from Michi-
gan and now visit their son
in jail. Devout Christians, all
three attend what Carol has
dubbed Church of the Razor
Wire, which includes inmates
and their Christian family
members.

Road to
authentic living
"It's been an interesting life
- not the one we expected,"
Carol Kent said, seated outside


the banquet room of the Ven-
ice Community Center before
the dinner.
During her presentation, she
talked about the guilt and de-
spair she had to overcome. Her
life had been turned inside out
when she lost the life she knew
with her only child's incarcera-
tion.
"My son killed a man and he
couldn't have any do-over," she
said. "He is serving a life sen-
tence. I had to give all control
to God, all my expectations."
Over the past 11 years, the
Kents have tried to get clemency
for their son, who they believe
acted out of overprotection of
the girls and not with a mur-
derer's heart. They want an end
date for his punishment. They
agree, though, that he did wrong
and deserves punishment.
A lifelong, "toe-tag" sen-
tence, as Carol Kent called it, is
too harsh, she said.
Their appeal, supported
by a judge and many more
people, including fellow in-
mates whom Jason has helped
through his Bible ministry
and documented in a 212-inch
thick notebook filled with sup-
portive letters, was denied.
Carol Kent's books "When I
Lay My Isaac Down," "A New
Kind of Normal" and "Between
a Rock and a Grace Place,"
chronicle her journey through
the angst of giving up her
hopes and dreams of the "old"
normal.
What gets her and Gene
through the tough times is
their faith in God and staying
the course.
"We chose not to waste our
lives because life didn't turn out
the way we wanted," she wrote
in "A New Kind of Normal."
She told the audience she
chose vulnerability, which al-
lows others to tell their story in
an authentic way.
She related to issues women
in the audience might be
dealing with. Someone may
be dealing with having lost a

son, a brother or a husband, or
facing infertility or advanced
cancer. Another's child may
have a learning disability.
"There is enough pain to
go around, and pain is pain is
pain," she said.

More mothers' love
Vivian Casillas, of Venice,
voiced gratitude and patience
after hearing Kent talk.
"I have a 20-year-old son,"
Casillas said, tears welling in
her eyes. "He still lives with
me, and there are little things,
like his coming home late, that
are normal but bother me. But
at least he comes home. For


now, I'm going to be thankful
for that."
Beverly Larson, administra-
tive assistant to the Rev. Tom
Hodge at First Baptist Church,
said women in the audience
who have sons in prison told
her later that Kent's story really
spoke to them.
"They were having trouble
dealing with it," Larson said.
"Another woman told me
that she learned from Kent's
talk that no matter what the
circumstance, there is a way to
deal with it and have hope."
Carol Kent has long been a
Christian author and speaker.
She has been a keynote
speaker at Women of Faith and


other Christian gatherings.
She has appeared on such TV
broadcasts as a Billy Graham
prime time TV special, "Date-
line NBC" and "In Touch with
Charles Stanley." She has writ-
ten at least a dozen books.
The journey toward authen-
ticity she experienced follow-
ing her son's incarceration has
served to enhance her career.
Just prior to Jason's arrest,
Gene left his career in the
insurance industry to join his
wife on her public speaking
tours.

Venice, after a talk Nov. 30 at the Venice Community Center. "I know many
young people, and this will help me help them with God's word,";' Silva said.
Kent's books include "When I Lay My Isaac Down,""A New Kind of Normal,"'
and "Between a Rock and a Grace Place."

I GOREN BRIDGE
ANSWERS TO WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ


Q 1 - Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:

AJ 763 3 A1076 0 J924J7

The bidding has proceeded:
WEST NORTH EAST SOUTH
14 Dbl Pass ?
What do you bid?

A - This is a matter of judgment. If
you think the hand rates two bids,
and we think it just qualifies, then it
is clearly right to bid one spade now,
intending to bid the hearts next,
depending on how the auction pro-
ceeds.

Q 2 - As South, vulnerable, you hold:

AA421 J95 0 J8654 1043

The bidding has proceeded:
WEST NORTH EAST SOUTH
10 Dbl Pass ?
What do you bid?

A - Many players feel compelled to
bid one heart as a sign of weakness.
However, avoid taking out partner's
takeout double into a three-card hold-
ing if there is any alternative avail-
able. Bid one no trump. That over-
states your strength a mite, but it is
the lesser evil.

Q 3 - As South, vulnerable, you hold:

Q 93 AJ763K 1074KJ

The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
14 Pass 12 Pass
14 ?
What do you bid now?

A - There is no reason to do anything
other than to make the value jump to
three no trump. Remember, a jump to
two no trump would be invitational in
this sequence, showing 10-12 points.

Q 4 - East-West vulnerable, as South
you hold:


4 Q8763 ) A 1083


A 10 5 7


The bidding has proceeded:
WEST NORTH EAST SOUTH
16 21 Pass ?
What do you bid?

A - This is no time to count points.
Partner, vulnerable, has made a two-
level overcall and you have four-card
support, two aces and also probably a
double fit since partner is marked
with minor-suit cards. Jump to four
hearts.

Q 5 - Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:

A AKQ 104 ) A 10 0 J 965 A 6

The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
14 Pass 20 Pass
9
What do you bid now?

A - Your wealth of prime cards and
excellent suit make your hand
stronger than its point count. To show
your power, you have to choose
between the high-reverse of three
diamonds, to highlight the mildly dis-
tributional nature of your holding,
and a jump to three no trump. We
prefer three diamonds; it leaves more
room for exploration since your two
honors in partner's suit makes hearts
a viable contract as well.

Q 6 - Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:

A A9 cQ2 10 98632410 652

Partner's opening bid of one diamond
is doubled for takeout. What action
do you take?

A - You surely want to pre-empt, and
it is simply a question of to what
level. Our choice is a full-blooded
five diamonds. On a good day that
could make when the opponents are
cold for game their way.

This deal is from the finals of the
Wagar Women's KO Teams at the
recent ACBL Summer North
American Championships held in
Reno. At one table, five diamonds
was defeated by the bad trump break
and accurate defense. Here, three no
trump was reached after an artificial
opening bid that showed either five
clubs and a major suit or long clubs.
After North bid her major suit, the
rest of the auction was natural.
The opening lead was won by
dummy's nine, and declarer ran the
ten of clubs to West's king. Back


came a spade and declarer captured
the queen of spades with the ace.
With the diamond position marked
by the first trick, declarer was able to
go after that suit without allowing
East to gain the lead for a possible
spade return through the knave.
West allowed the king of diamonds
to win, so South entered dummy with
a heart honor to continue with the
queen of diamonds. West took the ace
and reverted to a spade to East's king,
bringing about this position:

East led a heart. Declarer won in
dummy, cashed in the two red-suit
winners, discarding clubs from hand,
and exited with a diamond, endplay-
ing West. Declarer had to score the
last two tricks with the jack of spades
and ace of clubs.

Husband's se:

to involve on
DEAR ABBY: I'm pretty
sure my husband is
addicted to adult porn
movies. We have several
pornographic DVDs in the
house and I can tell when
they have been moved.
He denies he's watching
them, so confronting him
again will only make him
more angry and possibly
push him "underground."
Our sex life, which used
to be grand, has become
almost non-existent. Do
you have any sugges-
tions? - SUSPICIOUS IN
FLORIDA
DEAR SUSPICIOUS:
Yes. Rather than accuse
your husband of being
a porn addict, start a
discussion about what
has happened to your sex
life. He may need to be
examined by his doctor to
determine if his problem
could be physical. If
that isn't the case, then
marriage counseling with
a licensed therapist might
help.
However, it doesn't
seem likely to me that
a man who views only
"several" adult DVDs is a
porn addict. Porn addicts
are usually glued to their
computers at every avail-
able spare moment.
DEAR ABBY: I am
married for the second
time and have two lovely
stepsons in their early
20s. Recently they told
me that my sister "Gloria"
(age 55) had asked them
to remove their shirts
during a holiday event
several years ago. They
were teenagers at the
time. She told them she
wanted to "at least look
since she couldn't touch."
After that, they no longer
wanted to participate in
family gatherings.
For the record, Gloria
has a history of poor
impulse control. She takes
medication for it and also
to control her temper.
She would verbally bait
the older boy, who would
then antagonize her
until I stopped him from
playing a battle of wits
with an unarmed person.
My relationship with
my sister has always
been contentious. She
used to beat me when
I was a child. She was
also controlling and
tried to order everyone
around. Should I stop
having family gatherings?
Should I ask other rela-

Dear Abby

tives to police her? How
do I confront her about
the many things she has
done? Or should I stop
associating with her? -
VEXED IN VIRGINIA
DEAR VEXED: Because
your sister seems unable
to distinguish between
what is and isn't appro-
priate behavior, have a
talk with her and tell her
what you expect from her
before the next family
gathering. I see little to be
gained from a "confronta-
tion" about what she did
in the past.
If Gloria manages not to

DEAR ABBY: I am a
woman who is wondering
what to say when
someone calls me "sir" on
the phone. I have heard
my voice recorded, and
I don't think I sound like
a man. Still, it happens.
It makes me feel angry
and mortified. What do
I say? - "MA'AM" IN
CINNAMINSON, N.J.
DEAR "MA'AM": You
should say, "For your
information, I'm a
woman." That should
clear up any confusion.

"For with God nothing shall be impossible,"- Luke
1:37
Let's get aboard this great truth and stay on it for it
will climb every mountain and pull us through every
valley all the way from earth to eternity!


I HOROSCOPE
ARIES (March21-April 19).Today's luck
is subtle. You have to be both mature and
imaginative to see it. You will get the chance
at an opportunity that never was available to
your parents. Seize it.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Small steps
would normally getyou from point"A"to
point"B"- but not today. What's necessary
isa running leap. Anything less won't get
you to the finish.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Unfinished
business is too heavy of a mental weight. You
can't be happy and creative with this load
on your mind.Tie up loose ends. You'll feel
refreshed and ready for a new start.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You area favorite
playmate of the universe.This is not about
pranks and mischief.Today'sgame is vigor-
ous and challenging and will engage your
body and mind.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your meetings will
be more important than you realize. Give
yourself twice as much time to get ready as
you normally would, and spend a good deal
of that time psyching yourself up.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).You paid your
dues. You obeyed authority, served the boss
and put in your time doing thankless tasks.
And though the work was considered lowly,
the rewards were high.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are used to
enjoying yourself-- some days less than
others. In those instances, the remedy is
simple. Ifyou wantto livea lifeof higher
quality, give a greater level of attention to
your endeavors.


SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Better todo
one thing completely today than to attempt
many and leave them unfinished. Itwill
bring you good fortune and deep satisfaction
to do so.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).You will be
amazed at the people who find success more
challenging than failure. You, on the other
hand, take to winning likeyou were born to
do it. Indeed, you were.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).Your ability
to concentrate in spite of distractions is
impressive. External events will be more
easily ignored than internal mental chatter,
butyou shut out both in favor of finishing
something that is very important to you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your perspec-
tive is different from how others experience
life. Right now, the small details seem as
bright and close as the large issues. You must
distance yourself in order to decide what is
truly important.
PISCES (Feb.19-March 20). You tend to
value the things that take a good deal of
effort. But something you do effortlessly is
of greatvalue to another person. Recognize
what it is, and deliver it to the one who
needs it.This is howyou'll make a difference.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 22). You'll move
up in the world. Authority figures who once
challenged you will extol yourvirtues. Rela-
tionships are smooth going into 2011, and
you'll have wonderful times with friends and
family. In January, you'll useyour power to
help someone attain what you have.There's
a trip in March and a windfall in October.
Libra and Scorpio people adore you. Your
lucky numbers are: 30,11,3,33 and 18.


JANRIC CLASSIC SUDOKU

Rules must be followed for

valid blood pressure reading


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
Shed some light on
blood pressure. I got off
blood pressure medica-
tion six months ago with
my doctor's approval. In
the morning, my pres-
sure is around 145/90 to
150/100. It varies during
the day. I am a mechanic
and work in a metal shop
where temperatures reach
100 degrees. After I get
home, shower, cool down
and am rested, my read-
ings are good: 127/73.
I have had five doctors
in the past six years. One
was adamant that my
pressure be 110/70, 24/7. I
told him this was impos-
sible. I read where BP can
reach 200/120 in someone
doing strenuous exercise. I
work strenuously. I am 51,
5 feet 11 inches tall and
weigh 215 pounds, mostly
muscle, very little fat. Are
my readings acceptable, or
am I at risk? - B.E.
ANSWER: You are abso-
lutely right. Blood pressure
jumps all over the place
during the day depending
on what we're doing. It
rises with hard physical
labor and with emotional
stress. It doesn't stay at
those high levels long.
To obtain a valid reading,
the rules for taking blood
pressure have to be
followed. A person has to
be comfortably resting
and seated for at least five
minutes. For you, while at
work, you should make that
rest period 15 minutes. The
environmental tempera-
ture should be neither
too hot nor too cold. The
arm on which the blood
pressure is taken has to be
supported by resting it on
a table or by the pressure-
taker comfortably holding
it. That arm should be at
heart level. Two measure-


Dr. Donohue
Readers may
write Dr a
Donohue at
PO. Box

Orlando,


ments ought to be taken,
with their average being the
official reading. You should
not have smoked within
half an hour of having your
pressure taken or not have
drunk caffeine for one hour.
Normal pressure is less than
120/80. High blood pres-
sure is equal to or greater
than 140/90. Numbers
between those two cutoffs
are "prehypertension."
Your evening readings
are fine. Your morning
ones are not so great. Take
them as I have instructed.
If they remain high, report
them to your doctor.

blood pressure presents it
and its treatment in greater
detail. To obtain a copy,

Homemade hot chocolate IU


Dear Heloise: Please print
the Heloise HOMEMADE
HOT CHOCOLATE recipe
again. I wanted to make it
for the holidays. I read your
column every day. Thank
you. - Judy in Virginia
Judy, it's my pleasure.
Here's what you'll need:
2 cups powdered milk
1/4 cup cocoa
1 cup confectioners'
sugar
Dash of salt
1/3 cup powdered
nondairy creamer
1 to 2 tablespoons
malted milk powder
(optional)
Combine these ingredi-
ents thoroughly and store
in a tightly sealed container.
To serve, spoon about
4 tablespoons of the mix
into a mug, fill with boiling
water and mix. You also
can use equal amounts of
sugar substitute and malted
milk powder instead of the
creamer to make a richer-
tasting drink, but then use
only 1 tablespoon and an
8-ounce cup. Enjoy! -
Heloise

A couple of
kitchen hints
Dear Heloise: A couple
of things that I have not
seen in your daily column
that I have found to be
efficient are:
* Keep a 5-pound bag
of sugar in the freezer to
keep it from clumping.
* Use an iced-tea spoon
to reach mayonnaise
when it's at the bottom of
the jar. - Marian Ison in
San Antonio

Natural
peanut butter
Dear Heloise: When
I read the hint about
shaking the jar of peanut
butter to get the oil to mix,


Hints from Heloise

it made we want to share
what I found to work best.
With a new unopened jar
that is at room tempera-
ture, with the oil on top,
turn it over for about one
hour. That's just enough
time for the oil to start
working its way back
through. After the hour,
open, stir and then store
in the refrigerator. Stir-
ring is much easier. Don't
leave it inverted for much
longer or you end up with
too much oil at the "top"
again. - Leslie in Houston

Cracking walnuts
Dear Heloise: When I
pulled out my nutcrackers
this year, I found that
they were not doing a
good job of cracking some
extra-strong walnuts. I
retrieved a new pair of slip
joint water pump pliers,
commonly called "channel
locks," from my workshop.
They adjust to suit any size
nut, the teeth do not slip,
and they have much more
mechanical advantage
than ordinary nutcrackers.
- L.Q. in Florida

Thawing meat
Dear Heloise: As I defrost
fish or meat, I place the
carton in a plastic zipper
bag and then in the refrig-
erator to prevent any soak-
ings from the meat dripping
onto the shelf of the refrig-
erator. -A.R. in Virginia

Wanted: a really big

Christmas present

g They" said it couldn't be done. Hopefully "they" will be wrong,
and those volunteers scurrying around the Venice circus arena
will get a really BIG Christmas present, a 5,000-seat perform-
ing arts center, historic site, retail space and even - an energy
generator.
I wasn't quite a member of the 'They" coalition but I did wonder if
such a big project were possible.
With folks like Tito and Renata Gaona, Orlando Bevington, Karen
Dove, Jim Slack, Nancy Berman, Louise Schiavone and so many
others working so hard, saving the arena is more than a possibility.
Bevington is the hands-on, 24-hours-a-day project coordinator,
Web master, idea man and all-around go-to guy. Schiavone is a
general-purpose volunteer who works in the office, paints and hauls
trash. Berman is a former student of Clown College who sees the
possibilities. Tito Gaona was a star in that arena. He wants to see
his daughter Victoria and others her age to have their chance.
Other individuals have hoped to save the arena but this is the
first grass-roots effort and it is growing fast. Every time I stop by the
site, I meet yet another person who has come aboard. Bevington
said "angels" come daily. Together, the angels have contributed
more than $260,000 in money and in-kind donations. In January,
200 people will have the chance to join the Founders Ring of Fame
at $1,000 each. I am betting there will be more than that who want
to sign up.
Move over Baraboo. Venice Arena may live again as a living his-
tory site like the one in Baraboo - but more so.

Mel Brooks' 'Young Frankenstein' at Barbara B. Mann


PROVIDED BY BARBARA B. MANN
PERFORMING ARTS HALL
The New Mel Brooks Musical "Young Fran-
kenstein" comes to Barbara B. Mann Performing
Arts Hall Dec. 28 - Jan. 2.
The production is musical comedy from the
creative team of the 12-time Tony Award winning
smash "The Producers," opened on Broadway
Nov. 8, 2007 at the Hilton Theatre and began
the national tour in Sept. 2009.
Christopher Ryan and Preston Truman Boyd
star in the roles of Dr. Frederick Frankenstein
and The Monster in the first national tour. The
iconic roles of Igor and Frau Blucher continue to
be played by Cory English (who starred in the
original Broadway cast) and Joanna Glushak.
They will be joined by David Benoit (Inspector
Kemp/ Blind Hermit) Janine Divita (Elizabeth)
and Synthia Link (Inga).

Based on the Oscar-nominated smash hit
1974 film, "Young Frankenstein" is the wickedly
inspired re-imagining of the Mary Shelley clas-
sic from the comic genius of Mel Brooks. When
Frederick Frankenstein, an esteemed New York
brain surgeon and professor, inherits a castle
and laboratory in Transylvania from his grandfa-
ther, deranged genius Victor Von Frankenstein,
he faces a dilemma. Does he continue to run
from his family's tortured past or does he stay in
Transylvania to carry on his grandfather's mad
experiments reanimating the dead and, in the
process, fall in love with his sexy lab assistant
Inga?
Unfolding in the forbidding Castle Fran-
kenstein and the foggy moors of Transylvania
Heights, the show's raucous score includes "The
Transylvania Mania," "He Vas My Boyfriend" and
the unforgettable treatment of Irving Berlin's
"Puttin' On the Ritz."

Caio Stolai and Steve Smith perform a tribute

to the circus you have to see to believe


PROVIDED BY VENICE THEATRE
Brazilian performer Caio Stolai is bringing
his one-man show, Circo Poeira ("Dust
Circus") to Venice Theatre's MainStage at
8 p.m. today.
Local audiences first became enamored
with Caio Stolai and his unique show when he
performed at the 2010 International Community
Theatre Festival held at Venice Theatre this past
June.
Circo Poeira, in a poetic and entertaining way,
tells the story of an Old Master and his fond
memories of the circus. Stolai brings to life an
assortment of hand-carved wooden puppets
ranging from boisterous elephants to delicate
ballerinas.
Allan Kollar, Venice Theatre's producing direc-
tor, invited the Brazilian performer to bring Circo
Poeira back to the theatre this winter as part of
its concerts and special events series. Kollar
says it's difficult to describe the show to people


who haven't experienced it. "There's this moment
where Caio is manipulating a fire-spitting, knife-
juggling, blind-folded puppet. It's extraordinary.
People who saw the show at the international
festival were in awe. We were so excited when we
learned that he was available to come back."
Adjudicators at the international festival said
they were impressed with the boyish enthusiasm
the performer brought to his show and with the
way he gave each puppet unique character
styles. At the awards ceremony, Circo Poeira
won four awards: Outstanding Original Script,
Excellence in Physical Theatricality, Excellence
in Props and Best Performance by an Actor in a
Leading Role.
Opening the show is Emmy Award Winning
actor, clown and local celebrity Steve Smith.
Tickets for Circo Poiera are $25 and may be
purchased online at www.venicestage.com or by
phone at 941-488-1115.
Venice Theatre is located at 140 W. Tampa Ave.
on the island in Venice.

Harry Potter park chips away at Disney's dominance


BY MITCH STACY
ASSOCIATED PRESS
Craig Taylor wasn't much interested in vacationing
in Orlando with his parents this month - until
he and his girlfriend plugged into the hype swirl-
ing around the new Harry Potter attraction.
So Taylor, 23, a police dispatcher who lives near
Manchester, England, and girlfriend Katherine Lucarz,
22, both fans of the wildly popular books and movies
about the boy wizard, decided they had to tag along
to experience The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at
Universal Orlando.Thafs where they were on a sunny,
cool weekday afternoon in early December, taking a
break among the other Muggles in the shadow of the
towering Hogwarts caste.
"Ifs brilliant' says Lucarz, adding that the steep,
snow-covered rooftops, crooked chimneys and shops
of Hogsmeade village are even more like the movies
than she imagined. Other visitors queued up just to get
in the door at Ollivanders Wand Shop, and waited an
hour for the centerpiece ride, a fantastic state-of-the-art
flight simulator/robocoaster called "Harry Potter and the
Forbidden Journey.'
That sort of devotion to all things Potter is precisely
what Universal hoped to tap into when it debuted the
$250 million attraction in June in a corner of its Islands
of Adventure park.
Harry has conjured all the magic Universal
expected, and then some. In the quarter after the
attraction opened, crowds at Universal parks swelled
by 36 percent over the same stretch last year, while
attendance at Disney's Orlando parks stayed roughly
the same.
But the big question is, can Universal keep the edge
and take a bigger bite out of the Mouse's historical
dominance as more families shake off the recession
and come back to the parks?
Thafs hard to tell, industry analysts and tourism
officials say, but everyone agrees that the eye-pop-
ping success of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter
has been a shot in the arm for all the Orlando-area
attractions.
Thanks to the new attraction and an improving
economy, hotel occupancy rates in Orange County
shot up nearly 21 percent in July over the same month
last year, and through September were running nearly
7 percent ahead of 2009 totals.
"Harry Potter certainly has been a very powerful
motivator," says Gary Sain, president of the Orlando/
Orange County Convention & Visitors Bureau."I
believe that it has helped to drive additional visitation to
Orlando. And then no one just comes for one attraction,
they come to visit several attractions"
But Disney, historically good at keeping extended-
stay visitors on its properties, is losing more park days
to Universal now because of the Harry Potter attraction,
says Dennis Speigel, president of International Theme
Park Services Inc., an independent industry consultant.
He believes the Potter attraction has also taken a con-
siderable bite out of attendance at SeaWorld Orlando,

whose image - and attendance - is still recovering
from the violent death of a whale trainer in February.
"(Harry Potter) has had an enormous impact, and
we believe it has legs;' Speigel says. "I don't think you're
going to see a 36-percent increase at any theme park
for a while. But we believe that Harry Potter has enough
story line to carry forward for the next 15 years, if it is
properly executed in the parks"
Moody's Investors Service said last month that
Universal's boost from the attraction should last several
years.
Steve Baker of Baker Leisure Group, a theme-park
industry consultant, predicts a two-year benefit for
Universal, but Disney's dominance and skill at keeping
visitors on its properties is too hard to crack for Univer-
sal to gain any permanent and significant ground on
the mighty Mouse.
"I think whafs happened so far is that (Harry Potter)
hasn't brought new business to the market yet, ifs just
enjoyed a bigger market share of what exists:' Baker
says. "And I think until Disney comes out with some-
thing new, thafs probably going to be the case. Harry
Potter will be a big influence on the attendance at all the
parks for quite a few months. I know Universal is hoping
ifs everlasting, but nothing is everlasting"
For now, though, there's no mistaking whafs bring-
ing people to the park.
On a late morning in early December, typically a
slow period for all the Orlando parks, the wand shop
at the Wizarding World wasn't the only one with a
crowd. Wannabe witches and wizards also stood in
line to get into the gift shops, belly up for a butter beer
and eat at the Three Broomsticks Inn.The hubbub
at the Wizarding World didn't spill over into the other
areas of Universal's two parks, where crowds were
sparse and wait times for rides were no more than
five or 10 minutes.
Universal spokesman Tom Schroder says the new
attraction has "been great for everything we are"
'The Wizarding World of Harry Potter has helped
us reach a new audience, and we've used that op-

portunity very strategically to help people understand
everything they can experience when they come
here," Schroder says.
Overall, though, 2011 is expected to be another
soft year for the theme park industry with only modest
growth, analysts say, with much higher hopes for
2012.
'We're not a recession-proof industry, but we're a
recession-resilient industry' Speigel says.'We bounce
back faster than a lot of industries. People want to
escape, they want to get out, they want to have fun.

Atlanta airport


restaurant makes a


layover worth it


FLORIDA ROAD TRIP



Hotel chef honors

Tibbals miniature circus


BY KATHLEEN PURVIS
MCCLATCHY NEWSPAPERS
I did something I never thought I'd do when I made a
plane reservation recently.
I arranged a longer layover. In Atlanta.
While even I questioned my sanity for a minute, there
was a method to this madness. Hartsfield Jackson
Atlanta International Airport has gotten a little better
for eaters in the last couple of years. Maybe even a lot
better.
There was a time when all plane tickets came with a
meal. Remember the plastic plate with the cunning little
compartments? Remember looking at the clouds while
gumming broccoli that had been steamed into whimper-
ing submission?
OK, maybe ifs not such a good memory
But these days, you have little hope of a meal once
the plane takes off unless you're a clever packer. On
the ground, you're a captive of food courts, $6 bottles of
soda and that Cinnabon smell.
Still, I am a determined food traveler. I've panted
through airport barbecue explorations in Dallas and
Memphis, Tenn. (In Memphis, I'll take Interstate over
Corky's, hands down.) I've navigated ground transporta-
tion to get to Todd English's Figs at LaGuardia (decent
fancy-pants pizza) and swapped tips on the superiority
of Chicago's Midway (with Pot Belly's) over O'Hare.
But one airport experience had so far slipped from
my grasp: One Flew South at Hartsfield Jackson in
Atlanta. An actual airport restaurant. With an actual chef,
the wonderfully named Duane Nutter.
Usually, when passing through Atlanta - and we all
do, eventually - I have only a short stop, maybe a quick
train ride from Concourse C to A. There is just enough
time to stop at Paschal's, the airport-concession version
of the storied Atlanta soul food restaurant.
That is not a bad thing. As airport food goes, I like
Paschal's (pronounced PASS-kells). Soul food adapts
better than most cuisines to the steam-table treatment,
and the nice ladies behind the counter usually call me
"baby'at least once.
The baked chicken and meat loaf are satisfying, but I
usually skip them and go with a vegetable plate of moist,
buttery cornbread dressing topped with gravy, collards,
black-eyed peas and very candied yams. Compared to
another pack of Delta's Biscoff cookies, that is hungry-
traveler manna.
But what I really wanted was a layover long enough
to take the train all the way to Concourse E, for One
Flew South.

sushi bar and restaurant, which has been singled out for
praise everywhere from Conde Nast Traveler to Garden
& Gun. When I saw the menu included a pulled duck-
confit sandwich, Benton's bacon BLT, Carolina trout and
- cue the violins - several manifestations of pork belly,
I knew I had to bite the bullet train and find a way.
On a recent trip back from D.C., I had my chance. My
plane got in at 11 a.m. and I had picked a connector that
didn't board until 12:50. Plenty of time.
At 11:15,1 I reached the door in the gleaming halls
of the international concourse, where Euro-trotters get
live piano music and a wine bar in addition to the usual
McDonald's and Arby's.
Too bad the door didn't open until noon. So much for
my carefully laid plans.
But pork-belly lust knows no obstacles. When an-
other determined food traveler showed up at 11:30, we
double-teamed the manager and begged pathetically
until they agreed to open 15 minutes early There's one
example of why locally owned restaurants have a place
in airports: What chain restaurant would bend those
rules?
The Atlanta architecture firm Johnson Studio, which
designed Charlotte's Vivace and BLT Steak, was
responsible for the look of this place. There's nothing
generic about it. Slats of heart pine cover the windows
and gird the ceiling and floor.Tables and bars are topped
with indigenous Cherokee pink marble. Ultramodern,
white leather chairs cup your weary backside. Add the
room-length photographic mural of a lush green forest
and the effect is literally oasis.
I started with sushi, which is fitting for an airport.
If you want fresh fish in America, don't look to ports,
look to air transportation. My starter, two pieces of raw-
scallop nigiri, was wonderfully sweet and clean-tasting.
Then I turned to Nutters Thyme-Roasted Pork Belly
served on pureed parsnips with black-eyed pea and
arugula salad and blackberry-onion marmalade. It was
just the way pork belly should be and too often isn't:
fork-tender inside, crisped on the outside.
I was cutting it close enough on time that I decided to
get dessert to go. Warm chocolate chip cookies and ice
cream sounded tempting but not travel-proof. I went with
the Pineapple "Nof' Upside Down Cake - grilled pump-
kin bread, bourbon-braised pineapple and a generous
topping of vanilla-flavored fluffy cream.
I held out on opening the dessert until we were
airborne and headed for Charlotte. I took a tender, not-
too-sweet bite and looked out at the clouds.
It wasn't free, but it beat the stuffing out of mushy
broccoli.

PHOTO COURTESY OF THE RITZ-CARLTON SARASOTA


Complete to its balconies is a gingerbread version of the Ritz-Carlton Sarasota, where
pastry chefs paid homage to the Tibbals miniature circus of the Circus Museum of the John
and Mable Ringling Museum of the Circus in Sarasota.


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Where else but Sarasota should anyone
expect to find the largest edible minia-
ture circus?
In keeping with the world's largest miniature
circus created by Howard Tibbals and now
permanently installed at the John and Mable
Ringling Museum of Art's Museum of the Circus
in the Tibbals Learning Center, the lifelong proj-
ect of Tibbals is reason enough to visit Sarasota
and that wonderful museum.
The Tibbals circus has a sweet cousin,
crafted by hotel pastry artist Mae Cavazos
and her elves. Tibbals and the chef shared in
the unveiling duties of this year's "gingerbread
house"on Dec. 9.
Titled "The Whimsy of the Circus," this "house"
features a gingerbread replica of the hotel and a
miniature three-ring circus complete to miniature
elephants, lions, giraffes, parade and baggage
wagons, tents, jugglers and more. Tibbals circus
took more than 50 years to make and has thou-
sands of pieces. Unlike the Tibbals circus, this
one features hotel culinary employees in human
pyramids, juggling knives and valet car parkers
riding bicycles while housekeepers juggle piles
of linens. (with chocolates on the pillows of
course) The hotel version took more than a year
to design and five months to build. It is 8 feet
tall, 12 feet long and 5 feet wide. There are more
than 230 figures in all plus the hotel.The hotel
replica took 118 pounds of gingerbread dough
and the figures were made from edible gum


paste and fondant. Food coloring and edible
"fairy dust" and "luster-dust glitter" makes the
circus sparkle. There are little penguins and a
large monster dragon.
The details on the hotel include brick pavers
made of gum paste in front of the entrance and
icing details around every window and balcony,
including tiny balustrades. There are two
revolving circus tents and performing lions and
elephants. Above the tents is a sweet replica
NikWallenda of the famous circus family. The
Wallenda figure is walking a tightrope as he did
in February from the hotel. Below are two gum
paste housekeepers holding a mattress - just
in case.
Surrounding the display is a circus parade,
complete to replica wagons featuring five
themes: Warm Welcome Waves; Inviting Gulf
Waters; Lands Afar; Holiday Celebration; Fanta-
syland of Imagination.
This latest creation is yet another tie to the
Ringling museum and even to the family of
John Ringling. The Ringling legacy is important
to the hotel which last year featured a ginger-
bread version of the family home Ca d'Zan as
its gingerbread house.
While checking out the tree, you might want
to linger awhile and enjoy afternoon tea or
perhaps have breakfast with Santa. Call the
hotel to inquire about these and other holiday
offerings.
The hotel is at 1111 Ritz-Carlton Drive in
downtown Sarasota.

TVTHENEWS


Cable TV pushing the boundaries on what's considered a comedy


BY MARY MCNAMARA
LOS ANGELES TIMES
When Edie Falco won an Emmy for
outstanding actress in a comedy for her
role in "Nurse Jackie" earlier this year,
she looked not only surprised, but also surprisingly
irritated. Holding the statue at arms length, she
said "Oh, this is just the most ridiculous thing that
has ever, ever happened in the history of this lovely
awards show. Thank you so much. I'm not funny"'
Now, many awards winners make obligatory
murmurs of self-deprecation, but Falco didn't
sound humble so much as exasperated, as if the
television academy had missed the point of her
Jackie Peyton. The character is many remarkable
things, of which funny is fairly far down the list.
Not that the academy had much of a choice; if
voters wanted to reward Falco for her phenomenal
performance, they had to do it in the comedy cat-
egory, because Showtime considers a comedy the
story of a woman so stressed out by the balancing
act of work and family that she extends her hours
of production with a home brew of uppers and
painkillers.
There's precedent, of course, not just for the
categorization but also for the award. Toni Collette
has won both an Emmy and a Golden Globe for
her portrayal of a mother struggling with multiple
personalities in "United States of Tara," and Mary-
Louise Parker has picked up a Golden Globe and
multiple Emmy nominations for the drug-dealing
former suburbanite Nancy Botwin in 'Weeds."
It isn't just women - David Duchovny has picked
up a Golden Globe for "Californication,"'which is
heavy on self-absorbed pathos and light on laughs
- but Showtime has developed an alarming pen-
chant for putting wonderful actresses in psychologi-
cally torturous, life-threatening situations and calling it


comedy This season, it was Laura Linney starring in
'The Big C,"'which follows a woman coming to grips
with her terminal cancer and is, remarkably enough,
the least dark of the bunch.
Not that any of the characters or the situations
are trivialized or played for laughs - all the shows
are written with depth, complexity and, occasionally,
poetry which is, of course, how they managed to
land such big names.
Despite the presence of Duchovny's sex-crazed
character, the gender discrepancy is alarming.While
men can be award-winning heroic serial killers
(Showtime's "Dexter"), cancer-patients-turned-drug-
manufacturers (AMC's "Breaking Bad") or double-life-
leading adulterers (AMC's "Mad Men"), women can
do dark only if they soften it with at least the label of
comedy
Most scripted shows on cable are essentially psy-
chological dramas in which an ordinary soul must
suddenly cope with extraordinary circumstances.
The only thing that separates "Breaking Bad" and
'Weeds" is a lightness of tone achieved almost
exclusively by dialogue. It's difficult to imagine the
"Breaking Bad" writers coming up with anything
more disturbing than a child committing murder
with a baseball bat, as happened last season on
'Weeds"
Which isn't to say that drama can't be funny -
the time-honored theatrical icon shows a laughing
face as well as a weeping one. Very few shows
carry on without a comedic element or two. Even in
the extreme cases of "Nurse Jackie" and "Dexter,"
one is drawn to the main characters despite their
behavior precisely because of their conflicted
humanity, and humor plays an important part in
that connection. "Nurse Jackie" bears a much more
striking resemblance to "Dexter" than it does to "30
Rock" or "Parks and Recreation'"which provided


two of Falco's fellow Emmy nominees, but no one
would consider calling "Dexter" a comedy
So, how many comedic elements does it take to
make a comedy? Over on the networks, more rig-
orous formats make categorization officially easier
though not necessarily more accurate. Some
shows, such as 'The Office" or "Modern Family,"
are clearly comedies, while others use comedy to
heighten, or offset, narrative drama. The success
of "House" depends almost entirely on witty dia-
logue and the comic timing of Hugh Laurie, but it is


a medical procedural and therefore a drama.
A cynic might suppose that Showtime and
other cable outlets push the boundaries of com-
edy not just because they can, but because the
dark shows tempt dramatic performers who gen-
erate buzz and nominations. If, on the one hand,
this trend toward humor born of inky pathos
reinforces the ridiculous but still time-honored
belief that drama is more important than comedy,
it also proves the impossibility of categorizing just
about anything, especially television.

19-year-old with the famous hairdo - "the wedge" - won an Olympic
gold medal for her dazzling figure skating at the Winter Games in
Innsbruck, Austria. Her life seemed to glide as easily as her skates.
But as Hamill reveals in her frank new book, A Skating Life: My Story,

Sacio Of of so


'39 Steps'


cast is total delight


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Impeccable timing and perfect casting make
Florida Studio Theatre's production of "39
Steps" a must-see.
Toss in physical comedy and countless
costume changes and the Patrick Barlow adapta-
tion of the Alfred Hitchcock film based on John
Buchan's classic spy novel goes over the top in
its humor.
New York actors Michael Frederic (Richard
Hannay) and Letitia Lange (three beautiful
women) handle the "serious roles," to use that
term rather loosely, while FST returning actor
Sheffield Chastain and FST newcomer Curran


Connor as the play's "clowns" who manage to
play a total of 150 other characters to move the
story forward under the direction of Eric Hissom.
All four cast members also assist with moving
pieces of the set on and off the stage so seam-
lessly that the audience is left with little to do but
sit back, chuckle and occasionally think "How do
they do that?"
That was especially true in the scene in which
the clowns literally juggle three hats, three ac-
cents, three sets of facial expressions and three
characters.You have to be there - literally
When a beautiful spy is murdered in the apart-
ment of do-gooder Hannay, the innocent man has
to stay out of the clutches of cops, killers, spies


and a femme fatale.
"39 Steps" runs through Feb. 20 in the Gom-
pertz Theatre at Florida Studio Theatre, 1241 N.


Palm Ave., Sarasota. Tickets are $19 to $34 per
person at the box office, online at www.floirdastu-
diotheatre.or or by phone at 941-366-9000.

December 22-28, 2010 E/N/C/V


BY BLAKE GOPNIK
THE WASHINGTON POST
Is it obvious that a third-generation atheist,
descended from Portuguese and Ukrainian Jews,
should love Christmas carols more than almost any
other music? My wife, raised as a solid, choir-singing
Protestant, thinks there's a simple explanation: Since I
don't connect Christmas carols to childhood Sundays
spent bored to death in church, I can take them as
nothing more than pretty songs that evoke childhood
and gifts.
She may be right (she usually is), but I think there's
something more to it than that. I think that, in some in-
choate way, Christians got the Christmas art form right.
From something like 1200 to 1900, a tradition was per-
fected for evoking a set of warm emotions, just slightly
bittersweet, that were never quite as concentrated
elsewhere in our culture.That, at least, describes the
carols that do the job for me, and I'd like to pretend my
taste for them isn't completely arbitrary. I can't stomach
"Frosty" or "Rudolf" or Bing's White"-ness; jazzy, rocky
and poppy carols make me faintly ill. But give me
"Adam lay ybounden" or "Pat-a-Pan" or "Good King
Wenceslas"- even "Silent Night"- in just the perfect,
heartfelt, sober version, and I start to beam.
I buy new Christmas albums every year. Most don't
do the trick.
Here are some that do.
"The Holly and the Ivy' by Alfred Deller and the
Deller Consort, on Vanguard Classics.This is the carol
album to beat all others. (But maybe I'm biased: It was
the only carol album we had when I was little.) People


a �WO tohw S


who worked with Deller, the pioneering countertenor
who died in 1979, continue to insist that he was one
of the greatest, most genuine artists of our era. His
consort may not have been as great, but his spirit
infuses the singing they back him up with.
"Star of the Magi," on Atma Classique.This is a mix
of older carols sung in early-music style by counter-
tenor Daniel Taylor - the closest thing to a true Deller
heir - and soprano Suzie LeBlanc. Hearing it makes
breathing a joy.
Marc-Antoine Charpentier's great "Midnight Mass,"'
from about 1694, sung by the Ensemble Vocal de
Nantes under Paul Colleaux, on Arion. Every Christ-
mas Eve in Quebec, where I grew up, Quebecois
families gather in church to hear this piece of baroque
vocal music - as they've been doing for centuries.
There are plenty of fine versions of the piece, but this
one seems suitably sprightly and notably French.
"Nativite en Nouvelle-France," by the Ensemble
Nouvelle-France, on Oratorio. OK, I admit this is
obscure: Here are many of Charpentier's carols in their
original folk versions, as they might have been heard
in 18th-century Quebec.This makes me think of winter
nights in Montreal when the thermometer dipped way
below freezing - and the music could still warm you.
"Noels a I'orgue" ("Organ Noels"), by French
organist Rene Saorgin, on Harmonia Mundi. More of
the same French carols, this time turned into baroque
organ variations. Crafting these noels was one of the
great traditions of 18th-century France. This album is
mostly Claude Benigne Balbastre (it has a bit of yule-
tide Bach as well), but other fine ones feature noels by

S ome believe that
success in the music
business is a matter
of luck, perfect timing, or who -
you know. For the local heavy
rock band As Bridges Burn,
they believe it was a matter of
hard work, perseverance, and
the support of fans, peers,
and others who believe in theo
music. ,
Only one short year after
the five-member band formed, SUN PHOTO BY SHARE DERRICKSON
they have been signed to the
independent label Venomm As Bridges Burn is excited about getting signed to independent
label Venomm Records. Shown are: Judd Broome, Bobby Comeau,
Records out of Tampa, a move Rob Hirtzel, Matt Borror, and James Arnold.
that will take the band from


local favorite to in the studio and, hopefully, on the
road touring in the spring.
James Arnold, one of the band's guitar players,
said the band is still a bit in shock. "We are one
of the first bands out of this area to get signed so
it is a big thing not just for us, but for all the local
musicians," he said. He said the signing shows
that it can happen for others, especially in an area
that is getting known for an abundance of quality,
original music acts.
Arnold said venues such as Corky's Rock-n-
Roll Bar and Grill in Port Charlotte that caters to
original acts, helped boost its fan base. "Corky's
and the guys at Living on the Edge Productions
helped us out so much. There are so many people
that helped us make it this far and gave us a place
to play.They are priceless."
"I want to give a shout out to J-Rock and Patty
Rock Solid Pressure Show. In early September,
we won a radio competition that they were doing
and one of the things you could win was the
chance to play a showcase at the State Theater in
St. Petersburg."
The showcase, he said, gave the band the
opportunity to perform their original music in front
of different record producers, record labels, and
other recording artists. "We got to play the show
and we had a huge turnout for it. We were then
contacted by Kathleen Holstead of Venomm Re-
cords and we talked and had some meetings and
finally came up with something we could agree on.
She is really pushing us so we can get on tour."
Arnold said there are advantages to being
signed to an independent label in contrast to larger
corporate labels. "Independent labels can get you
on tour and on the road without a lot of money"
He added that larger labels sometimes dictate
a band's musical direction, and many independent
labels allow for more artistic freedom and give


you more say in how things are done. In Arnold's
opinion, independent labels may not have as
much money as the large labels for promotion, but
the good outweighs the bad.
Soon, the band, comprised of Arnold, Bobby
Comeau on vocals, Judd Broome on guitar, Matt
Borror on drums, and Rob Hirtzel on bass, will be
in the studio working on a recording of new music,
with a couple of surprises. "We don't want to give
it away - we want to surprise people," he said. The
name of their new album, he said, is Sever the Ties.
The recording will take a couple of months and the
band hopes to have the CD out by February Arnold
said while he does not have tour dates yet, Venomm
is working on it.' We are hoping to get on the road by
March or April - it is not set in stone yet:'
"We are all excited but are a little nervous at the
same time. It is a big change. It is really amazing."
He credits the band's success to several key
factors. "Everybody in the band is a mature musi-
cian and knows what their job is and does it. There
is no drama and we go out there and give every
show 100 percent. People notice that. The business
aspects of it, we made it a rock-solid business and
made the band a corporation and when we are not
playing, we are promoting ourselves. Some bands
don't do a lot of legwork and we do."
The local reaction from fans and other bands,
he said, has been overwhelming. "More people are
coming to the shows and we are getting a lot of
support from our peers in the other bands."
Arnold said they will always be appreciative
of the local music scene for its support. "This will
always be our hometown area and we won't forget
where we came from.We are going to stay real."

ids will be attracted to the new 3D "Yogi
Bear" like ants to a picnic. Their parents will
be as entertained as having to deal with
ants at a picnic.
That's a big failing because recent animated of-
ferings - Toy Story 3,""How to Train Your Dragon"
and "Tangled" - have cleverly combined the kind
of silly humor that delights youngsters with smart
writing, good music and/or standout animation to
keep adults amused.
Dan Aykroyd provides the voice for Yogi, while
Justin Timberlake speaks for Yogi's sidekick Boo
Boo.
Timberlake's channeling of the young bear is as
good as when legendary voice talent Don Messick
originated it in the '60s. But, Aykroyd's attempt
to mimic voice talent Daws Butler's Yogi voice is
uneven - from dead-on to dead wrong.

animation. The real actors and CGI characters
work together seamlessly. It's what they are doing
together that's the problem. The script is as
heavily slanted toward Jellystone Ranger Smith
(Tom Cavanagh) and his love interest (Anna
Faris) as it is to the antics of the mischievous
bear.
"Yogi Bear" should focus on the anti-estab-
lishment view of the bear, which manifests
itself through Yogi's larcenous assaults on the
Jellystone campers. Instead, the film makes Yogi
and Boo Boo supporting players.
There's an additional distraction - a vastly
overused corrupt politician storyline. It's an effort
to create a villain, but the plot device is as stale as
six-month-old bread.
A little more creativity would have gone a long
way toward covering up the movie's flaws. And it'll
cost you extra to see those flaws because of the
3-D.
"Yogi Bear" is the latest 3-D release that fails
to provide enough added entertainment value -
coupled with a scant running time of 79 minutes
- to warrant the extra ticket charge for 3-D
glasses.
Making the film in 3-D was a major boo boo.

Boxed CD sets under the tree:

The biggest stars are out


BY GLENN GAMBOA
NEWSDAY
Welcome to the era of the Monster Box. For
decades, record labels have counted on
enough fans shelling out $30 to $50 for a
modest-size box set to make everyone happy.
However, as album sales continue to drop, some
labels have decided to double down on the packages
of their biggest stars, hoping that super-fans will be
willing to drop big bucks for elaborate, extensive sets.
The Kng of Box Sets this year comes from The
Kng, as Elvis Presley's 'The Complete Elvis Presley
Masters" collects all 711 recordings
released during his lifetime.The set,
which comes with a 240-page
book, is a whopping 30 CDs
for $749 through completeel-
vis.com.There is also 'The * * ' -
Apple Records Box Sef'a
17-CD package of non-Bea- ""
ties albums from the label's "'
impressive roster, including "..:'
James Taylor's debut and a
whole lot of Badfinger, for $336.98.
Those may be the biggest boxes under
the tree, but there are other sets spanning a much
wider range of prices than usual this year. Here's a
look:
-BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, 'The Promise: The
Darkness on the Edge of Town Story"
What's in it? The digitally remastered version of
"Darkness on the Edge of Town' which Springsteen
says is where he responded to his "Born to Run"
success with the stories of people he grew up with.
It's the album where he found his "adult"voice,
in "The Promised Land,"'Prove It All Night"and
the title track. In moving forward, Springsteen left
behind nearly 30 songs that didn't quite reflect the
new direction, ones that showcased his love of Phil
Spector ("The Little Things (My Baby Does)") and
a continuation of the E Street Shuffle sound ("Ain't


Good Enough forYou," which is kissing-cousins
close to 'This Little Girl," which he wrote for Gary
U.S. Bonds). The bulk of those songs became "The
Promise," a new/old album that's a looser version of
the Springsteen we've come to expect.
Extras: The notebook! The spiral-bound, six-
pocket notebook where Springsteen plotted out the
arc of "Darkness on the Edge of Town" is replicated
with coffee-stained accuracy, offering lyrics revi-
sions, set-list plans and other thoughts, all in his
own handwriting.The DVDs include a documentary
on the making of the album, a bootleg concert from
1979 and the current-day Springsteen and
E Street Band playing "Darkness" in
its entirety.
List price: $119.98 for three
CDs, three DVDs (Columbia).
., :. There also is a two-CD ver-
sion of just the unreleased
r ' z songs for $18.98.
; -" "j E -DAVID BOWIE, "Station
sS^t - to Station (Deluxe Edition)"
What's in it? The original
analog master version of "Station
to Station," which features Bowie at his
funkiest on 'TVC15" and "Golden Years," marking
the high point of his combination of European pop
and American soul, and the previously unreleased
but often-bootlegged "Live Nassau Coliseum '76"
album. The Coliseum concert is a stunning show of
force from Bowie as a showman, his proper British
storytelling and cool German-influenced perfor-
mance warmed up by his American band, featuring
guitarist Carlos Alomar. (Check out his giggly open-
ing to "Changes" and the reworked "Rebel Rebel.")
Extras: The CD master of "Station to Station"
from 1985, LP and DVD audio versions of the ana-
log version and an LP version of the live album.
List price: $165.98 for five CDs, three LPs, DVD
(EMI).There also is a three-CD special edition
available for $34.98.

BLOOMBERG NEWS
Maybe everyone on your holiday gift list
already has an iPod and a Flip videocam.
Fret not. The proliferation of personal-tech
gadgets means there's a present for every personal-
ity type, interest and need. For instance:
The Couch Potato: While this was the year 3-D
television arrived in the mainstream, its high cost and
limited content made for a slow start. Meanwhile,
2-D high-definition sets continue to get better and
cheaper. At the head of the pack: Samsung, whose
LED sets such as the 6800 series ($2,299 to $2,999)
provide jaw-dropping picture quality in a panel that's
less than an inch-and-a-quarter thick.
The Early Adopter: Speaking of 3-D TV, of all the
things holding it back, the dumbest has to be that
you can't use one manufacturer's set with another's
3-D glasses: The two pairs that come with most sets
make for an awfully small Super Bowl party. XpanD's
X103 Universal glasses ($129) work with sets from
10 companies. Ifs still a bit of a hassle to change
the settings from one set to another, and some TVs
require using an extra transmitter. But its at least a
step toward liberation from the tyranny of specs.
The Audiophile: Cue Acoustics' Model R1 tabletop
radio ($399) packs a lot of volume and beautiful sound
into a handsome, compact box that also includes an
integrated iPhone/iPod dock. If you can spend a little
more, Cue's $99 S1 satellite speaker provides extra
stereo separation. Ifs remarkably good - and even
more remarkable, ifs hand-built in Massachusetts.
The Lazy Housekeeper: IRobots Roomba may
have pioneered the look-ma-no-hands vacuum
cleaner, but Neato Robotics' XV-11 ($399) is the latest
generation. It uses a laser sensor to create an internal
map of its surroundings that it uses to plot its path and
minimize collisions with walls and furniture. In terms


of cleanliness, the Neato is no substitute for a human
wielding a Hoover - but ifs a whole lot less work.
The Game Player: Imagine playing Xbox- or Play-
Station-quality games on your TV without the Xbox or
PlayStation.Thafs the idea behind the OnLive Game
System ($99). The games aren't downloaded; they
reside on the Internet and are played entirely online.
The initial selection is limited but has some recogniz-
able names - "Batman: Arkham Asylum," anyone?
- and the adapter uses a wired connection instead
of Wi-Fi. On the other hand, watch for a soon-to-
come $9.99 monthly all-you-can- play service: think
"Netflix for games:"
The Road-Warrior Speed Freak: Who needs a
Wi-Fi hotspot? Verizon Wireless's new 4G network
delivers a song in four seconds, and a 35 MB video
clip in less than half a minute. The new network
went live last weekend in 38 metropolitan areas
and 60 airports. Laptop users can plug into speeds
five times greater than 3G with the LG VL600 USB
Modem ($99.99 with a two- year contract).
The On-the-Go Media-Muncher: For anyone
who travels with an iPhone, iPad or other Bluetooth-
enabled device, Aliph's Jawbone Jambox ($199) is a
palm-sized package of sonic fun. Roughly the size of
a blackboard eraser, the Jambox is a wireless speak-
er that can be tossed into a suitcase or computer
bag to enliven a soulless hotel room. Play music out
loud, watch a movie without using headphones and
catch every pig-grunt in "Angry Birds:"
The E-Reading Reader: Amazon.com managed to
make the thin, light, easy-to-read Kindle even thinner,
lighter and easier to read - to say nothing of cheaper
- than the one it replaced. Still, Barnes & Noble won
the race to color with the Nook Color ($249), a hand-
some Wi-Fi tablet that, besides providing an excellent
reading experience, is also the best dedicated
e- reader for magazines or surfing the Web.
