Council OKs airport plan


By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR

A new chapter in the his-
tory of Venice Municipal
Airport was written this week
when the Venice City Council
held its last public meeting
on a controversial airport
layout plan and resurrected
a decimated capital projects
agreement.
The layout plan, required by
the Federal Aviation Admin-
istration, is six years overdue
and must still receive final
approval by the FAA. All indi-
cations are it will receive that
approval.
The compromise plan shifts
Runway 13-31 away from the
Gulf Shores and Golden Beach
neighborhoods whose resi-
dents complained of noise,
requiring takeoffs and land-
ings farther away.
A resolution approved by
council Wednesday settles
another issue - permanently
moving 24 homes out from
under a runway protection
zone. Only two remain.
In 2006, plans to build a
beachfront hotel on airport
property surfaced, igniting a
firestorm of protest. The plan
was eventually abandoned.
Three new council members
came into office and disband-
ed the airport advisory board.
That was followed by three
years of city challenges to FAA
rules in an effort to dissuade
additional corporate jets from
landing; expensive litigation
against the city over planned
hangars; the purchase of the
former jet center; and hag-
gling over the layout plan,
most notably the RPZ over
homes.
On Tuesday some residents
were still concerned the RPZ
will remain over their homes
for years until the changes
written into the airport layout
plan are carried out.
"I appreciate that the RPZ
is going to be moved, but how
long will it take?" asked Alex
Clemmons. "It could take
about seven years. What's go-
ing to happen in that time?"
Others said it's only a mat-
ter of time before the FAA
finds an excuse to expand the
airport, putting the RPZ back
over the homes.
"There will always be some
folks that will be disappoint-
ed," said DY Consultants' Lisa
Mastropieri, who assisted the

homes.


city in drafting up the new air-
port layout plan. "We did the
best we could. We had to push
and tug, and so did they (FAA).
It all worked out in the end."
Not everyone on council
was pleased with the out-
come. Jim Bennett was the
sole vote against adopting
the plan. Bennett said he
was concerned the plan was
developed prior to a property
survey being done, and with
two homes that will still be
under the RPZ.
Airport Administrator Chris
Rozansky said he's in discus-
sions with the FAA over the
possibility of securing some
kind of financial recourse for
those property owners.
In the other significant air-
port action, millions of dollars
worth of projects that were
previously eliminated from
the Joint Automated Capital
Improvement Program with
the Florida Department of
Transportation and the FAA
have been placed back on a
five-year plan.
The revised JACIP adds
back a host of grant-eligible
maintenance projects that Ro-
zansky said are crucial for any
airport to operate safely.
The JACIP list includes the
two main projects enshrined
in the airport layout plan:
refurbishing Runway 4-22,
the noise mitigation runway,
at $8.4 million; and shifting
Runway 13-31 away from
neighborhoods at a cost of
$20 million.
The much-talked-about

Tuesday.


ing System alone will cost
$7.8 million. It consists of
crushable concrete to keep an
aircraft from overrunning the
runway into the Intracoastal.
A new JACIP adds $15 mil-
lion for 13 new projects over
next five years.
The airport generally pays
5 percent of project costs from
its enterprise fund, which is
funded from user fees, not
general fund revenues.
New big ticket projects that
made the five-year plan in-
clude: $1.8 million for Taxiway
D rehabilitation; $2.8 mil-
lion to rehab Taxiways A, B
and C; $5 million for apron
rehabilitation; $1.5 million for
electrical vault and genera-
tor replacement; $1 million


for taxiway lighting system
improvements; and $400,000
to reconfigure the airport
administration building with
additional leased office space,
a conference room and an
aviation history museum.
It's a wish list that Rozansky
emphasized doesn't expand
the airport.
"Other than Runway 13-31,
most airport pavement areas
are from 25 to 69 years old
and badly need to be rehabili-
tated," he said.
"It's not to expand the air-
port, but to take care of what
we already have - the type of
projects typically found in any
airport management plan."

No bypass


decision


till October
By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINESS COLUMNIST
Will U.S. 41 Bypass from Cen-
ter Road to Bird Bay be widened
to six lanes or remain in its cur-
rent four-lane configuration?
For the answer, stay tuned.
"It was decided at our meet-
ing on Monday our 15 board
members will make the final de-
cision at the October meeting,
having carried out a peer review
of all aspects and input from
interested parties," said Michael
Howe, executive director of the
Sarasota-Manatee Metropolitan
Planning Organization.
The project is defined in
three sections by the Florida
Department of Transporta-
tion: Center Road to Gulf Coast
Boulevard, southern section;
Gulf Coast Boulevard to Albee
Farm Road, middle section; and
Albee Farm Road to Bird Bay,
northern section. The consen-

Mayor John Holic
presided Tuesday over the
first annexation request,
albeit an informal one,
brought forth before city
council since his election
in November.
Annexations had been
informally placed on hold
until the city's updated
comprehensive plan was
approved late last year.
With a distinctly pro-
business council in place,
representatives of Ajax
Paving Industries stepped
forward this week to ask for


council's blessing to annex
a parcel, which includes
their headquarters, into the
city before it embarks on a
formal land-use petition.
The company employs
250 in the Venice area.
"If the council has no
interest in processing the
annexation application,
we can save both ourselves
and the city a good deal of
time and effort," said Ajax's
attorney Jeffrey Russell said.
"I look forward to going
through this procedure
in a positive way," said
Council Member Emilio

Although most drivers are get-
ting acquainted with driving the
new roundabout at the Jacaranda
Boulevard and East Venice Av-
enue intersection, they are ready
for the barricades to disappear
and allow traffic to move faster.
They'll have to wait a little while
longer.
"I'm guessing it will be some-
time in late July or early August,"
said Kevin Hicks, CEO and man-
ager of Gator Grading & Paving
of Palmetto, contractors for the
project.
"The project is substantially
complete and traffic could use it;
however, the county in my opin-
ion made a wise decision that the
landscaping contract should be
completed first and that compa-


ny started work just recently."
Gator Grading & Paving will be
doing final punchlist work at the
intersection for the next month
as the landscaping is finished.
Sarasota County officials sus-
pended the company's project
clock while the landscaping
is done because it is likely the
finished paving would have been

The final paved surface and
lining will be put down by Hick's

concrete work and, weather per-

later. At that stage county officials

Lee Fund


now a

foundation

By DANA SANCHEZ
STAFF WRITER
After three years operat-
ing under the umbrella
of Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice, the
Denise Amber Lee Fund is
now officially the Denise
Amber Lee Foundation.
Its goal is to improve
and standardize 911 call
systems around the U.S. so
that victims and families
never have to go through
what the Lees did.
The foundation began
as a fund at GCCFV in
memory of Denise Amber
Lee, who was abducted
from her North Port home
on Jan. 17, 2008. Despite
a call from her on her
captor's cell phone and
at least four other 911
calls regarding the crime
- including one from
a witness who saw the
kidnapper's car and stayed
on the phone for nine
minutes with the 911 call
center - no one was ever
dispatched. Denise's body
was found two days later.
Denise's husband, Na-
than Lee, and his father,
Mark Lee, head up the
foundation.
Now that it has 501(c) (3)
status, the foundation can
solicit funds directly from
corporations and individu-
als for an operating budget
with three main programs:
to set up a public educa-
tion fund, a training and
professional development
fund and a financial relief
fund.
"We had a lot of limi-
tations raising funds," Na-
than said. "It was difficult
getting big corporate
sponsorships."
For the past three years,
Mark and Nathan have
been invited to speak
around the U.S. at state
and national conferences,
trying to raise public
awareness of the need for
improvements to the 911
system.
Ultimately, Mark said,
he hopes "a call to 911 is
answered the same way
in Miami as it is in L.A."
The foundation has
attracted national leaders
to its board, including
Ronald Bonneau, former
president of the National
Emergency Number As-
sociation, which works on
standards and training for
dispatchers and call sites,
and Paul Fahey, secretary
of the 9-1-1 Industry Alli-
ance, a group of vendors
that supply goods for call
centers. Kyle Terrance,
another board member, is
vice president of Comerica
Bank in Houston.
"Everywhere we go
around the country, peo-
ple say this is a national
issue," Mark said.
As a result of Denise's
death, Florida now has
232 hours of mandatory
training for anyone taking
and dispatching 911 calls,
according to Mark.
"There are some states
that have absolutely no
training," he said. "You
can basically walk in off
the street and answer a
screaming woman's call
for help, which isn't right."
The foundation needs
$125,000 a year for an
initial budget and plans
local fundraising events.
For information, call 941-
716-4343, email marklee@

lanes for both the middle
and northern sections.
There is disagreement,
however, about the
southern section - it
needs to be improved,
but at how many lanes?
FDOT has approval to
acquire right of way for six
lanes for the mid-segment
on a budget of $10.2 mil-
lion with construction
in 2014/2015, and $7.6
million for the northern
segment with construction
in 2015/2016. The process
actually starts July 1 with
completion by June 2012,
said Lauren Hatchell,
FDOT public information
officer.
The troublesome part of
the project is the southern
section, said Howe, but
the board can review all
three segments. At its April
meeting so many opinions
were raised that the board
voted to authorize Howe
to retain a consultant to
look at previous FDOT
U.S. 41 Bypass studies
from 2000, 2005 and 2009
to determine the feasibil-
ity of improving traffic
control and flow. FDOT
is currently working with
the MPO's consultant on
a new analysis and will
report to the board in
October, said Hatchell.
In a press release this
week, Pam Johnson,

Carlesimo, reflecting
council's viewpoint.
Ajax is the last in a
series of annexations
envisioned a decade ago
when council decided to
move all cement, asphalt
and other mining opera-
tions from downtown to
North Venice, to be by
other existing plants and
active mining operations.
In 2004 the city annexed
the Venice Minerals and
Mining, Tarmac and APAC
properties in North Venice.
Ajax Pavement property
was held under an option
when one of the owners
died, delaying proceedings.
Since then Ajax held
numerous meetings with
representatives of nearby
Venetian Golf and River
Club, who gave their
approval of the annexa-
tion based on promises
of additional buffering
between the subdivision
and mining operations.
Sarasota County is ac-
tively in discussion with
Ajax owners to purchase
the northern portion of
its property.
According to Russell, the
county has indicated that if
the purchase moves forth it
would use the vacant prop-
erty to create a stormwater
retention pond, and use
the excavated dirt to build
a berm on the southerly
border of another borrow
pit owned by the county to
create additional buffering
forVGRC.
"Two years ago Ajax
came to us asking for
support to help mitigate
the obvious problem,"
said Jerry Jasper, aVGRC
resident. "Ajax has always
responded to problems
in a positive fashion and
has an open door policy
when problems arise.
All in all, Ajax has been a
good neighbor andVGRC
supports their annexation
and is comfortable that the
conditions (for additional
buffering) will ensure good
relations in the future."
At Tuesday's regular
meeting council approved


a new annexation proce-
dure drafted a year ago
but never adopted. The
procedure pulls coun-
cil into pre-annexation
negotiations early on.
It also requires a cost-
benefit analysis to discern
potential city revenue and
a summary of community
workshops outlining any
concerns, and establishes
additional public notice
requirements.


Venice marketing and
communications officer,
said the city is celebrating
the start of a project that
has been more than two
decades in the making.
With the state fiscal year
beginning on July 1, right-
of-way acquisition for the
addition of two lanes to
U.S. 41 Bypass inside the
city limits (between Bird
Bay Drive and Gulf Coast
Boulevard) is funded. The
Florida Department of
Transportation will begin
construction around 2014,
adding a northbound and
a southbound lane to the
existing bypass to make
it consistent with U.S. 41
north of Bird Bay Drive
and south of Center Road.
It will greatly enhance
the daily flow of traffic,
provide for better emer-
gency hurricane evacua-
tion and offer an efficient
alternative route when
there is a serious accident
on 1-75. Other improve-
ments include bike lanes,
sidewalks, landscaping,
street lights and signals.
A roundabout analysis
was conducted in 2009
for the U.S. 41 Bypass
and East Venice Avenue
intersection, but it was de-
termined that a traditional
signalized intersection
would provided a better

Also


level of service for six lanes.
Compton Cramer,
owner of Cramer Honda
and Cramer Toyota, lo-
cated on opposite sides of
the southern section of the
bypass, thinks four lanes
are enough.


"I don't think there is
need for six lanes in the
southern section, but it
does need cleaning-up
with a bunch of turn
lanes, cut-throughs and
median work," he said.
"The bottleneck is Venice


Avenue and U.S. 41, and
if it were cleaned up by
adding additional turn
lanes like they did at
Center Road it would
improve the traffic flow."
Howe said that although
FDOT will go through


the process of apprais-
als and discussions, land
purchases will typically
not be consummated until
much later in fiscal year
2012, and by then the final
decision of the MPO will
be known.

Private investigator can do it all


"We resolve the whole
gamut of investigative
issues," said Sue Ewell,
owner and president of
SCI Investigation Inc. of
Nokomis.
She said fraud is the
biggest problem in
Florida, from medical in-
surance to homeowners
and family policies.
Ewell provides 24/7
services including trying
to catch cheating spous-
es; child custody and
visitation issues; missing


persons; and cold case
files. She is a specialist
with ground penetra-
tion equipment to locate
missing persons poten-
tially buried and a facial
reconstruction expert who
can digitally rebuild in 3-D
features from a skull.
She is also vice presi-
dent of Winkleman &
Associates, which offers
debugging services for
embassies, corporations,
including computers and
phone lines.
From Virginia Beach,
Va., she joined an at-
torney team, then moved
to the city public utili-
ties group. Later in life,
deciding she needed a
more rewarding career,
she obtained a master's
degree in criminology
with criminal justice ad-
ministration and a minor


in psychology, as well as
a paralegal degree.

ing their fashions.
For seventeen years
Evanicki was a CPA with a
Buffalo, N.Y., accounting
firm. In 2000 she came
to Venice and two years
later opened Zak's next
to Dick's Shoes. Making
a career change, she be-


came a visual designer for
Stein Mart for two years,
but customers kept en-
couraging her to reopen
her store. She came back
to downtown, operating
in a smaller location with
the intention of moving
to West Venice Avenue.

Luna One is now Mike and Mindy's Pizza Plus


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Sam and Mike Altieri
found the perfect solu-
tion when they decided
to sell Luna Pizza.
After 18 years the Alt-
ieris wanted to concen-
trate on just one retail
space, Luna Ristorante
on the island, which they
will expand later this
summer. But they also
wanted to look out for
the customers who made
them a household name.
Back in 2000 when the
Venice High School foot-
ball team won the state
championship, a news-
paper article mentioned
that Venice had taken
over Tallahassee and the
only thing missing was
Luna's and Sharky's. Luna
Pizza was only 7 at the
time. They still cherish
that clipping for it made
them feel part of their
adopted hometown of
Venice.
The Altieris had plenty
of potential buyers for
their original location
but only one that was
a perfect fit - a newly

Ristorante in the new Mike & Mindy's restaurant, 4191 South
Tamiami Trail, Venice.


married couple with weeks," Mike Altieri said.
long ties to Venice and "Our close customers
strong ties to the restau- knew but that outer layer,
rant business, Mike and especially the seasonal
Mindy Smith. ones, needed to know
"It was chaotic for a few what was happening."


There were even ru-
mors about Mike leaving
Sam for some girl named
Mindy, Mike Altieri said.
Although he has known
Mindy for a long time
- since she was 6 and
would come to Luna at
least once a week with
her family - the story
was just gossip. More
recently, Mindy worked
at Luna Pizza and Luna
Ristorante.
"She was always the
first one there and the
last to leave," Mike Alt-
ieri said. "If I called for
help, even if she were in
Tampa, she would say
she would be there,"
"She always did what
I told her," Sam said.
"We've known her since
she was 6. She cheered
with Dominique (the
Altieris' daughter) and is
a true Venetian native."
Mike and Mindy Smith
met in Tallahassee,
where she was studying
engineering and he was
working as a restaurant
opener for the Logan's
Roadhouse chain.
"I opened more than
50 in 20 states," he said.


Now, with Mindy and
the blessing of the Alt-
ieris plus many of their
recipes, he is opening
a restaurant in Venice,
Mike and Mindy's at
4191 South Tamiami
Trail in the Venice Village
Shopping Center. The
new restaurant is in the
same space where the
Luna legacy began but
the other Mike's sports
memorabilia is mostly
gone and so is part of
one wall: The one excep-
tion is a game ball signed
by former Florida State
Coach Bobby Bowden -
her college.
"I got it at a fundraiser
in Tallahassee," she said.
The new space has a
bright red-and-cream
plaid wall, black tables
and chairs, a giant
blackboard for kids of all
ages to decorate and an
L-shaped counter where
you can sit up close and
watch the preparation
of your pizza, stromboli,
calzone, sandwich or
salad. Mike and Mindy
purchased the recipes
for Luna's bread, pizzas,
calzones and so on, but


not the pasta dishes or
desserts.
To the Luna favorites,
they are adding wings
and other appetizers plus
an ever-changing array
of specialty desserts by
Mindy. Mindy created
several new salads and
dressings and, using her
engineering background,
will make sure that ser-
vice is as efficient as it is
friendly. They also serve
beer and wine.
"They're both restau-
rant people and they're
young, with no kids, and
I gave them the keys to
success," Mike Altieri
said.
The keys: "Open
more hours. Take credit
and debit cards and
get the folks after the
early movie and the late
shifts at neighboring
businesses."
Hours are Tuesday
through Thursday,
11 a.m.-11 p.m.; Friday
and Saturday, 11 a.m. to
midnight; and Sunday,
noon to 11 p.m. Call 941-
496-9090.

Eye doctor son lures dentist dad to Venice


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

"My son was inspira-
tional in so much as I
would never have dis-
covered Venice without
him being here," said Dr.
Leo Durrett, referring
to his son, Scott Dur-
rett, M.D., who operates
Precision Eye Center in
the Health Park on Jaca-
randa Boulevard.
"I went to him for a
cataract surgery, and
traveling around here I
saw this building, which
I have purchased to es-
tablish my orthodontics
practice.
Realtor Loyd Robbins,
of Harry Robbins Associ-
ates, was working with
Scott, so I have been able
to piggyback on things he
had done with the Real-
tor, builder and architect,


and he has given me ad-
vice on handling some of
this work," said Durrett.
The shell built in
2003 for Mama Leone's,
restaurant in the Venice
Pines Shopping Center
was acquired in foreclo-
sure. In an excellent loca-
tion with a lot of curb
appeal, it is structurally
in very good condition.
All 2,500 square feet will
be converted to office
space.
With the ability to
build a second floor,
Durrett is currently in
discussions with the
shopping center's own-
ers as he has to install
external staircases. On
the second floor will be a
laboratory, the computer
server, laundry, staff
room and storage.
Durrett prepared the
layout, which is simpli-


fled as the space has no
slab constructed and
dental offices require a
lot of plumbing. Facilities
will include six to eight
chairs in treatment areas,
two consultation rooms,
doctors' offices and a
toothbrush area for clients
to dash in from the office
or school. Orthodontists
typically schedule patients
from 15 to 30 minutes
apart, although some
patients maybe there for
only five minutes.
Durrett came to
Florida more than 20
years ago and built four
practices, having six
associates work with
him in Lakeland, Winter
Haven, St. Petersburg
and Port Charlotte. Six
years ago he sold the
practices, then rejoined
and worked with the
purchasers.

SUN PHOTO BY ROGER BUTTON


Orthodontist Dr. Leo Durrett shows off the plans for his new
office, in the Venice Pines Shopping Center. He decided to
relocate his practice after becoming familiar with the area from


visiting his son, an eye doctor.

Returning to an owner-
ship role in Venice will be
exciting, and he is aware
that establishing a prac-
tice will take between
two and five years. Most
orthodontic patients


come from referrals, he
said. In the old days an
advertisement in the
phone book brought in
clients; today virtually
nobody uses it. Good
work is essential and


patient referrals become
70 percent of the practice
after five years.
The office will have
six to 12 employees and
incorporate state-of-the-
art digital camera systems
and X-ray machines with
everything computerized.
"It is a very exciting
area of dentistry today
and has changed the way
we practice, as we and
the patient are able to
see an X-ray as patient is
having it taken," he said.
"This is a long-term
commitment to the Ven-
ice community," he said.
"I think after we finish
the build-out I hope to
be open before the end
of the year, and then I
will look at having a resi-
dence here in preference
to St. Petersburg."

with an administrative
law judge's recommen-
dation to suspend the
license of former special
education instructor
Diana O'Neill for two
months and place her on
probation for the next
two years. She was also
ordered to participate in
the district rehabilitation
program for teachers,
and will be required to
take two courses, one on
classroom management
and one on exceptional
education.
O'Neill was removed
from her position at
VES in 2008 after al-
legedly mistreating
her students by hit-
ting them with water
bottles; pulling skin
off the lip of another
with brain damage and
backhanding her across
the back of the head;
and making dispar-
aging remarks about
other pupils in their
presence.
She was acquitted
of criminal charges of
child abuse in February
2009. In August 2009
the Sarasota County
School Board, which
wanted her fired, was
ordered by an arbitra-
tor to return O'Neill to
the classroom after a
four-week suspension
without pay.
Failing in that griev-
ance proceeding, the


school board took its
case to the Department
of Education's Education
Practices Commission.
In September 2010
the EPC stuck down
a settlement agree-
ment between O'Neill
and the Department of
Education to serve two
years' probation, but no
suspension. It ordered a
new hearing by Admin-
istrative Law Judge R.
Bruce McKibben.
After hearing testi-
mony from both sides,
McKibben submitted
his recommended or-
der to the EPC on April
27.
Like the arbitrator's
decision in August
2008, McKibben found
O'Neill had committed
acts that on their face
could get her fired, but
also said the school's
administration could
have stepped in sooner
and therefore shared
responsibility for
O'Neill's actions.
In an earlier legal filing
O'Neill's attorney, An-
thony Deema, said it was
possible that burnout
played a role. O'Neill had
spent almost 20 years
working with profoundly
handicapped students.
Some of her "behavior
might not have hap-
pened, or would have
occurred less frequently
but for the extremely dif-
ficult nature of the work"
she undertook for such
a long period of time, he
argued.
"The imposition of

Minor injuries in three-car crash on 1-75


A driver who stopped
unexpectedly on 1-75
Monday caused a three-
car crash but only one
person involved suffered
injuries, according to a
Florida Highway Patrol
report.
The report states that
a 2006 Nissan Titan
driven by Georgianna
I. Lee, 64, of North
Port, was northbound
on 1-75 near the 194
mile marker when she
stopped on the road. A
2006 Lexus driven by
William L. Hyland, 72, of
Venice, was behind her
and stopped to avoid a
collision but was rear-
ended by a 1999 Ford
F-450 being driven by
Herberto S. Boullosa,
38, of Cape Coral, who
could not stop in time.
Boullosa's vehicle con-
tinued north and struck
the left rear of a trailer
being towed by Lee, who
was cited for illegal stop-
ping. Boullosa was cited
for failure to use due care.
According to the re-
port, Lee, the three pas-
sengers in her vehicle
and Hyland were un-
injured, while Boullosa
received minor injuries
but was not transported
for medical attention.

Haworth honored for a job well done


Judge Lee Haworth received much-
due recognition Tuesday when the
Sarasota County Commission took
a moment to recognize his work as
chair of the county's Criminal Justice
Commission.
For the past four years Haworth has
been chief judge of Florida's 12th Judi-
cial Circuit, which includes Sarasota,
DeSoto and Manatee counties. First
elected to the circuit court bench in
1989, Haworth was chosen to be chief
by his colleagues in 2007 and again in
2009.
As it turned out, it was an extraor-
dinary era, when the implosion of
the housing market spurred budget
reductions while overloading the sys-
tem with an unprecedented number
of property foreclosures.
As chief judge and administrator,
Haworth led the effort to educate and
protect those facing the loss of their
homes. He helped organize commu-
nity foreclosure education programs
and even took to the TV himself
with public-service programs. Early


on in the crisis his administrative
orders forced banks to meet face to
face with borrowers in reconciliation
conferences during the foreclosure
process.
"He championed support organiza-
tions that gave people the opportunity
to save their homes," Sarasota County
Commissioner Jon Thaxton told us.
"He was the leader in the southeastern
U.S., if not the country, and he stood
up and said what needed to be said."
"It could have been a lot worse if
he didn't manage it as well as he did,"
said Sarasota County Commissioner
Christine Robinson, a lawyer.
Haworth will continue his work as
a judge in civil courts on July 1, when
Judge Andrew Owens takes over the
chief judge's functions. But the change
will end Haworth's role as chair of
Sarasota's Criminal Justice Commis-
sion. Tuesday's proclamation recog-
nized his work on that panel.
Created in 2004, the Criminal Justice
Commission is a step beyond the
public safety coordinating councils


required in Florida's counties. Its aim
was to bring together traditional law
enforcement entities and health and
human services professionals to find
better ways to address law-and-order
issues.
A few years ago, when it appeared
new jail space would be needed, the
CJC began a search for a new jail site,
but it also charted a strong direction
toward alternative, community-based
programs that could address the un-
derlying causes of criminal behavior
- such as drug and alcohol abuse -
and slow the rate of recidivism.
While no softy - "He's got a very
firm hand, not a bleeding heart guy,"
Thaxton said - Haworth was a vocal
advocate of progressive, data-driven,
cost-effective programs. The county's
alternative residential treatment ini-
tiative aims to establish better treat-
ment programs, family counseling
and job training.
In the process, Haworth helped
redesign the mental health and drug
court programs to make them more


effective, said Wayne Applebee, the
county's criminal justice coordinator.
The CJC also spearheaded the effort to
crack down on "pill mills" masquerad-
ing as legitimate pain management
clinics.
"He's been a huge advocate for
creating programs that are effectively
dealing with offenders, offenders'
families and children for rehabilita-
tion and public safety purposes,"
Applebee said. "It's always difficult
balancing the warm-and-fuzzy with
public safety, but he's very good at
balancing those two groups. He un-
derstands that if they work together,
everything will be better."
Haworth deserves the recognition
he received, and more.
As Robinson told us, "He's one of
those unsung heroes that people don't
pay attention to. But if something
went terribly wrong, he'd be the first
to the trouble."
"He's the perfect example of a judge,"
Thaxton said. "He's just instinctively
right."


Why not Woodley?


A lot of people say that
opinions are like noses - ev-
eryone has one. Some people
say the same thing but use a
different part of the anatomy.
Well, I have a nose and I
am going to stick it where it
might not be wanted, be-
cause I also have an opinion.
Acting City Manager Nan-
cy Woodley was informed
at a council meeting that a
search for a new city man-
ager will be made before an
actual announcement will
be made as to the choice.
Council Member Jeanette
Gates suggested we go back
to the drawing board and
do a search by using Slavin
Management Consultants,
the same company that
found Isaac Turner, the for-
mer city manager, to see if
it can come up with another
candidate. She wanted to
go back to Slavin because
according to the contract, if
the person it recommended
didn't last two years it would
conduct a search for a re-
placement at no charge. As
we all know, Turner did not
last quite two years.
It is the old "how did that
work out for you?" Even
though the service would be
free, why would we think the
results would be any better
the second time around? To
me it is just wasting time to
really prove nothing outside
of being able to say, "Well, we
tried."
We have a person who
knows the area, knows the
job, knows the ins and outs,


knows the people and, most
of all, knows the direction the
city should be taking. I have
the feeling that she would
really like to have the job and
continue the good work she
started as the interim city
manager. I also have the feel-
ing she expected to get the
job, and I must admit I too
thought that.
Talking to Ms. Woodley
one day, we chatted about
the Venice city budget and
all that was involved in that
- the hard decisions that go
into making up a new budget
and meeting the guidelines
you are handed. Questions
like, where the money is go-
ing to be taken from, where
is new money going to be
found and who is going to be
affected?
When she was talking to
me about all of this the deci-
sion hadn't been made about
the city manager search, and
I couldn't help but hope that
council did not have her do
all this work and then de-
cide maybe we should look
for someone new. It's funny
how things turn out. I am not
suggesting there's anything
Machiavellian in this but
sometimes you just can't help
what you think.
When the people of Venice
elected three new council
members, they had the right
to expect that things would
settle down and a sense of
calm would be on the pre-
vailing wind. Unfortunately,
it did not quite turn out that
way as many of the deci-
sions and thought processes
have flown in the face of that
thinking. This to me is just
another example.
A penny for your thoughts,
Ms. Woodley, as you continue
to do your job - and con-
tinue to wonder, as you have
for the past months, what the
future portends.

No relation. I'm most
surprised that the publisher
rejected the former police
chief for not saying "hi" when
he visited the police station. Is
the chief of police supposed
to say "hi" to each one? Is this
what we are to expect? I do
not like equating ability with
the fact that someone did not
say "hi" to you. Also, about the
criticism of his driving and us-
ing gas. Please don't equate it
with the fact that there are nice
people in Englewood. That has
nothing to do with it.
Thanks. To the Navy vet
named Walter, the good
Samaritan who came to our
help when our car stalled after
stopping at the Gondolier
Sun box to pick up Wednes-
day's newspaper at the back
entrance of Publix on Pine-
brook Road; and to the young
women who supplied her
cables to get us moving again:
There are good people in Ven-
ice. Our sincere thanks to you.
We were beside ourselves, not
able to move our car from an
entrance to a parking lot. We
thank you.
Out of line. It seems that
society certainly has its priori-
ties mixed around. I just read
in the paper recently where
the city of Venice is asking
for a $18 million grant for
the airport for reconstruct-
ing runways and doing this,
that and the other thing. What
should be done with monies
at the airport is just the basic
needs until the economy turns
around. We have this $18 mil-
lion we're allowed to ask for
at one end of the spectrum.
yet on the other end of the
spectrum there's the new
housing project that they
were supposed to build along
the Bypass and East Venice
Avenue. There's like nothing
being done. Also, we hear
that the South County Health
Clinic is shutting down and


Let 'em


Have It
people who need this type of
service are going to have to
go to North Port or Sarasota.
Certainly, our priorities are in
the wrong place. We're going
to have new runways and this,
that and the other thing to
fortify this little airport down
here that means absolutely
nothing to the welfare of the
United States as far as security
is concerned. It's time to get
our priorities in line!
No minimum. Let's get rid
of the minimum wage. In-
stead, let's determine a living
wage that includes health
and housing. Jobs paying less
would be prohibited as not
worth doing. But not to worry,
our free-market economy that
adjusts to $100 oil can handle
this. Lots of folks would con-
sider french fryers and burger
flippers important. Our large
employers would consider
clean floors and windows more
important than maintain-
ing the exorbitant salaries of
executives that are not earning
them. The middle class who
pay more for burgers would no
longer subsidize the medical


bills and housing of the poor.
More highly capable children
of workers would go through
college. A free-market econ-
omy that actually insists on
economic freedom of opportu-
nity? It could happen.
Sssh. Enjoying the story
about the North Jetty Fish
Camp, but I'd prefer it be kept
more of a secret. We'd like to
be able to find a spot to plunk
down and get a beer and a hot
dog. Hope they decide to leave
it just the way it is and not try
to fix something that needs no
fixing.
No better. Wonderful! Now
we want seven county com-
missioners? I question that.
The five that we have pres-
ently could not seem to watch
the carrot patch enough so
that others could make out
like bandits. There seem to
be some careless political
attitudes on the part of the
present commissioners - not
watching the business of the
county. I'm not so sure that the
seven county commissioners
would be any better. They'd
just add another layer of taxa-
tion and another layer of costs
and another layer of life-time
benefits. So watch what you
hope for.

Caller overlooks the real big spenders


Sue
Lang



Recently a Let'em Have
It caller stated that the
city shouldn't listen to
the suggestion I made
concerning balancing the
budget by using some
reserves and making
some cutbacks instead of
raising taxes.
The caller fails to men-
tion that if no reserves
were used or are used for
the upcoming year, the
city would have needed,
or will need, to raise taxes
substantially and signifi-
cantly cut staff and ser-
vices. This would result
in a hardship for many
Venice residents and


businesses, and for staff
who will add to the ranks
of the unemployed. Using
reserve funds is appropri-
ate because that is what
the reserves are for.
These funds represent
overcollected taxes that
poured in during the
boom years. It is stan-
dard practice to use these
reserves to offset a severe
downturn in the market
and a decrease in tax
revenue such as we expe-
rienced during the past
three years, provided the
city keeps an adequate
amount on hand for an
unforeseen disaster. That
"adequate" amount is
about $4.5 million for a
city our size. Contrary
to political rhetoric
that reserves have been
plundered, Venice cur-
rently has $7.1 million
on hand, or $2.6 million
more than we actually
need.
The caller also states


that I cost the city millions
of dollars. Let's review
who really cost our city
money. During former
Mayor Calamaras' and
City Manager Marty
Black's term, the city paid
more than $2 million in
fines to the EPA; bor-
rowed millions from the
General Fund to subsi-
dize the Utilities depart-
ment; and didn't set up
the proper repayment to
the General Fund.
Former Mayor Ham-
mett and the then-coun-
cil members paid MEA
several hundred thou-
sand dollars and when
they got caught with
a secret Marriott and
airport expansion plan
that included putting two
dozen or more homes
in a runway protection
zone, they rejected the
plan, causing me and
other newly elected
council members to have
to hire a new firm to


revise the plan.
The new firm, for the
first time, did an accurate
count and analysis that
revealed that this airport,
as stated on the record
by these professional in-
dependent consultants,
is a B-II airport and won't
be a C-II for at least 15-
20 years.
The airport, by the way,
brings in almost no tax
revenue to our city and
sits on some of the most
valuable property in the
entire southwest Gulf
Coast area. All aviation
businesses at the airport
are also exempt from
paying real or personal
property taxes. Venetians
should remember this
when they pay their taxes
to the city of Venice.
It is also important to
point out that the same
folks who are claiming
that I cost the city money
were among the instiga-
tors behind the baseless,


reckless accusations
against me and former
Mayor Martin. The caller
isn't asking former Coun-
cil Member Bill Willson,
who filed one of these
malicious, politically
motivated complaints
against me, which was
dismissed for lack of
probable cause, to repay
the $24,000 that he cost
the city of Venice.
Or how about for-
mer Council Member
Simmonds and former
Airport Chair Hollowell,
Airport Board Members
Carlucci, Bartanowicz
and others who were
mailing each other back
and forth and admitted
to deleting some of their
emails, which caused
the city to have to take
the blame and settle the
Sunshine lawsuit, includ-
ing payment of legal fees.
Not one of my emails
or conversations with
citizens ever violated


the Sunshine or Public
Record laws.
I could go on listing
the cost of the bad deci-
sions that former elected
officials in Venice made.
Meanwhile, the city is
back to good ol' boy
favoritism and cronyism,
evidenced by the recent
vote for yet another
sweetheart lease for
Sharky's, whose owner is
personal friends of the
mayor and has business
relations with Mayor
Holic's and Council
Member Gates' spouses.
Don't be fooled by
the usual suspects in
Venice who masquerade
as do-gooders and cast
aspersions on others
while they pillage this
community for their own
personal financial gain.

I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Lady luck
was a mechanic


Editor:
Leaping to conclusions
is similar to wandering
into an area where angels
fear to tread. That being
said, let me give testimo-
ny to how my outdated
male attitudes were ex-
posed to the raw facts of
living in today's world.
It all began when,
despite the warnings of
Thomas Wolfe, I decided
to go home again. Mid-
way on the drive to New
York, my car's air condi-
tioner decided it wasn't
going home again under
any circumstances and
gave up the ghost.
Not to worry, thought
I - there must be an AC
repairman in my home-
town. Well, I found him


and he was delighted to
give me an estimate of
several hundreds of dol-
lars. Being the cheap-
skate I am, I decided to
wait until I got back to
Florida to get it fixed.
Without air condition-
ing, I lasted as far as
Brunswick, Ga., where,
in desperation, I pulled
into an auto agency for
repairs. I was directed to
a covered area to wait for
the technician.
To my unbelieving eyes,
a beautiful young woman
in form-fitting snow-
white coveralls appeared
next to my car and, in a
voice oozing Southern
charm, asked me to open
the hood. I was trans-
fixed, but being too well
bred to make any com-
ments about ladies not
knowing anything about


fixing air conditioners,
I did as she asked and
turned on the AC.
She buried her attrac-
tive blonde head under
the hood. Using her
wrench, she went tap,
tap, tap on some part of
the infernal device. Won-
der of wonders, frigid air
poured out. I asked how
much I owed her.
She turned to me with a
dazzling smile and replied,
"Why, suh, this job was
too easy. We won't charge
y'all for a little ol' job like
this. It's on the house. Y'all
come on back now."
I sat stunned, sur-
rounded by the ashes of
my bigoted ideas about
women's abilities. It was
a lesson well learned.

Decision
was a done deal

Editor:
County staff was
instructed to create a
redistricting map that
would not put any sit-
ting commissioner out
of a district. They did
just that by taking the
residencies of the five
commissioners (four
of whom live in North
County) and fanning
out to give them ap-
proximately 75,000
people.
A two-day public hear-
ing was held and only
one citizen spoke in favor
of the county map. All
the other citizens asked
that objective, unbiased
criteria be used for
redrawing the districts.


That's all they asked.
A public hearing is to
gather information and
listen to public com-
ment. The lengthy, pre-
pared epistle "read" by
Commissioner Robinson
indicated that she did
not come to this public
hearing with an open
mind. The other four
commissioners at least
pretended to listen to


the public before voting
unanimously to guar-
antee that they would
meet the residency
requirements to run for
re-election.
This public hearing
was a sham.

9-10 YEAR-OLD ALL-STARS - DISTRICT 16 LITTLE LEAGUE TOURNAMENT



Venice All-Stars open with victory


MR. SHEEPSHEAD

Strange pond

occurrences
All my life I have always
wanted to live near a
pond. When we were
looking for a house about
11 years ago, my main
priority was to find one
close to a pond.
The following are some
of the many unusual
sights we have seen in
and around the pond,
which is located within
the city limits.
I remember watching
a coyote wander around
our neighborhood. I
didn't even know they
were in Florida. The next
day my wife was riding
her bicycle around and
came across a coyote. She
was about 100 feet away.
It looked at her for a mo-
ment and then disap-
peared into the woods.
One morning, one of
the few neighbors rang
my doorbell and we
walked around the pond
and saw huge cat tracks.
This gentleman, who was
a native Floridian, said
he knew what bobcat
tracks looked like. The
tracks were clear and my
neighbor estimated the
animal weighed more
than 100 pounds. My
guess was it was a Florida
panther.
Two different morn-
ings I went out to get my
newspaper. In the middle
of my driveway was a
huge crayfish. I woke
my wife to get a witness
because I couldn't believe
my eyes. I returned it to
the pond. Two months
later, it happened again.
Apparently they were
trying to get across the
street to another pond.
For those who don't know,
a crayfish is a smaller
version of the Florida
saltwater lobster.
One summer my grand-
son was visiting and we
would ride bicycles. One
day I saw a medium-size
bobcat wandering be-
tween the houses within
100 feet of us.
One day I was bass fish-
ing with a topwater lure.
I caught what I initially
thought was a bass but
after playing with it, I re-
alized it was a turtle. This
turtle was probably curi-
ous and when I jerked the
lure, the turtle became
tangled.
As the turtle was
struggling to free itself, I
noticed a small alligator
approaching. I started to
yell as loudly as I could.
A few neighbors and my
wife came running. The
alligator had trouble get-
ting a grip on the fairly
large turtle. The alligator
settled near the shoreline
weeds as we tried to scare
him into letting go.
All of a sudden my line
was loose and we saw the
turtle swim away. I even
still had my lure. The
confused alligator stayed
around for awhile trying
to figure out what hap-
pened to lunch.
A few years later my
grandson was catching
yellow and brown bull-
heads in the pond when
he pulled in a strange-
looking catfish. I released
it but found out later that
was a mistake. I looked
it up on the Internet
and discovered it was a
walking catfish, which are


native to Africa.
These creatures have

In the first inning, Chason

HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE CASH IN ON

MODERN DAY GOLD RUSH!


By Jason Delong


Gold and silver pour into yesterday's Roadshow due to highest prices in 40 years.


Yesterday at the Best Western Plus
Ambassador Suites, hundreds lined up
to cash in antiques, collectibles, gold and
jewelry at the Treasure Hunters Roadshow.
The free event is in Venice all week, buy-
ing gold, silver, antiques and collectibles.
One visitor I spoke with yesterday said, "It's
unbelievable, I brought in some old coins
that had been in a little cigar box for years
and some old herringbone necklaces-in

less than fifteen minutes I left with a check
for $700. That stuff has been in my jewelry
box and dresser for at least 20 years." An-
other gentleman brought in an old Fender
guitar his father had bought years ago. The
man said, "Dad had less than fifty bucks in
that guitar." The Roadshow specialist that
assisted him made a few phone calls and a
veterinarian in Seattle, Washington bought
the guitar for $5,700.00. The seller contin-
ued, "I got another $150.00 for a broken
necklace and an old class ring. It's not ev-
ery day that someone comes to town bring-
ing six thousand dollars with your name on
it."
Jeff Parsons, President of the Treasure
Hunters Roadshow, commented, "Lots of
people have items that they know are valu-
able but just don't know where to sell them.
Old toys, trains, swords, guitars, pocket
watches and jewelry is valuable to collec-

This week's Roadshow is the best place

process is free and anyone can bring items
down to the event. If the Roadshow special-
ists find items that their collectors are inter-
ested in, offers will be made to purchase

the show end up selling one or more items
at the event.
Antiques and collectibles are not the
only items the Roadshow is buying. "Gold
and silver markets are soaring," says Archie
Davis, a Roadshow representative. "Broken
jewelry and gold and silver coins add up
very quickly. I just finished working with a
gentleman that had an old class ring, two
bracelets and a handful of silver dollars. His
check was for over $650.00. I would say
that there were well over 100 people in
here yesterday that sold their scrap gold."
One gentleman holding his check for
over $1,250.00 in the lobby of the event
yesterday had this comment: "I am so hap-
py decided to come to the Roadshow. I
saw the newspaper ad for the event and
brought in an old German sword I had
brought back from World War II and some
old coins, and here is my check. What a
great thing for our community. I am heading
home now to see what else I have that they
might be interested in."
The Roadshow continues today starting

ment is needed.

When a stroke strikes

One morning in March, James Fox bicycled to
the mailbox and stopped to chat with a friend. In
the 15 minutes he was gone, his wife Esther called
friends to organize a card game. Afterwards, she
felt a little woozy and had just enough energy to
make it to the love seat in the living room. Esther
was having a major stroke.
"The first thing I thought of was the tongue,"
James said as he explained how he found Esther
upon returning home. "I said, 'put your tongue
out' and it went to the side." Understanding that
his wife had had a stroke, James immediately
phoned 9-1-1. Within minutes, the EMS was there
and Esther was on her way to Venice Regional
Medical Center.
As soon as Esther arrived at the hospital,
Interventional Radiologist Sergio L. Selva, M.D.,
knew there was no time to waste. Esther needed
to undergo a catheter procedure to remove the
blockage in the left side of her brain. An hour
and a half later, Dr. Selva successfully completed
the procedure by breaking the clot and Esther
immediately began to regain use of her extremities.
Esther spent four days at Venice Regional, then
12 days at Health South, an inpatient rehab
facility. After being discharged, she underwent
physical/speech therapy at Venice Regional's
outpatient rehabilitation facility. Esther has
completed her physical therapy and is
currently continuing her speech rehab near
her Pennsylvania home.


James and Esther Fox


Learn the Signs of a Stroke:

Act FAST.
Think FAST and use it to remember the warning
signs of a stroke:
Face - ask the person to smile.
Does one side of the face droop?
Arms - ask the person to raise both arms.
Does one arm drift downward?
Speech - Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence.
Are the words repeated correctly?
Are they slurred?
Time - if the person shows any of these symptoms,
call 9-1-1 or get to hospital immediately.
To be most effective, stroke care must begin within three
hours of the first symptoms.
Plus, a new, fourth indicator has been isolated. Just
like James Fox did with Ester - Ask the individual to
'stick' out his or her tongue. If the tongue is crooked
(if it goes to one side or the other), that's also an
indication of a stroke.


Health Tip:
As the weather heats up, illnesses
ranging from heat exhaustion to
heatstroke become more common.
The U.S. National Library of
Medicine suggests how to help
prevent heat-related medical
emergencies:
* Wear lightweight, loose-fitting
clothing
* If working outdoors, take
frequent breaks in the shade
or indoors
* When weather is particularly
hot or humid, avoid heavy
exercise or physical activity
* Increase your fluid intake
* Avoid becoming overheated,
especially if you're elderly,
overweight or taking a medication
that affects your body's heat
regulation
* Let your car cool down before
you get inside

One of the top entries
in Sunday's Suncoast
Super Boat Grand Prix
is Mojo, owned by Al
Bryant.
Bright yellow on the bow
morphs into bright red on
the stern of this 42-foot
Fountain-brand power-
boat customized with the
addition of an F- 16 fighter
canopy over the driver and
throttleman.
"This boat set a world
record of 142.3 mph in
1998," Bryant said.
If purchased new, this
boat would cost about
$1 million, he said.
Bryant said he has
about $200,000 invested
in Mojo, which he pur-
chased as a used boat.
The Kevlar body has
its original paint job,
15 coats. Decals honor
sponsors such as Sharky's
on the Pier in Venice and
Bentley's in Osprey. On
the bow is the boat's rave
number, P2-9. Had it
won the national cham-
pionship, the number
would have been P2-1.
"Mike Novak (co-
owner of Sharky's) helps
us a lot," Bryant said.
"He gives us this building
for a fraction of what it
would cost."
The building, on
Base Avenue in Venice,
is where the boat lives
when it is not racing.
Unless it is racing, it sits
on its own custom-made
trailer, protected from
the elements. Bryant
redid the hatches himself
and also put the decals
on the boat. The trailer
cost about $48,000, he
said.
Unlike recreational
boat trailers, this one
does not go into the
water. Almost as stun-
ning as the boat itself,
it is used only to store
the boat and to carry it
to races. A giant crane is
used to lift these valuable
boats from their trailers
and gently place them
into the water.
There will be two
cranes at Sarasota. The
cranes are provided by
John Carbonell, presi-
dent of Super Boat Inter-
national, which oversees
Super Boat races in
several major locales,
including Michigan, New
York and several ports in
Florida. The 31st Super
Boat World Champion-
ships will occur in Key
West Nov. 6-13.
"We have been racing
with SBI for going on 10
years," Bryant said as
we walked around the
immense V-hulled boat

being prepared for the
Sarasota race.
Two 1,000-horsepower
engines power the boat,
with a pair of Mercury Six
drives on each side.
"The outdrives go
along with the engine
package," Bryant said.
It cost $22,000 to
recondition the engines
this year, adding another
year to their life. It will
cost about $80,000 to
replace them.
"I ran a 36-foot Thun-
dercat last year," Bryant
said. "We're not like those
people with unlimited
budgets. We do most of
the work ourselves."
Before he got into rac-
ing boats, he raced funny
cars and dragsters, but
these days "it's strictly
boats."
Bryant said he was
national and state
champion in the 2007-08
season.

throttleman. Randy
Knapp, another member
of the seven-man team
involved with Mojo, is
backup throttle. Todd
Fournier is the crew
chief.
In Mojo's jet cockpit,
the driver sits in front
with video screens that
relay pictures from twin
cameras mounted be-
hind the canopy looking
backward to alert the
driver to boats within 60
feet on either side. In the
rear seat is the throttle-
man, who watches
myriad dials as the boat
zooms around the course
at speeds up to 105 mph,

they will race.

peratures of 120 to 130
degrees, cooled only a bit
from air coming through
some front vents.
"I lose about 9 or 10
pounds per race," Al Bry-
ant said.
Driver and throttleman
both sit low in the boat,
which kicks up plenty of
foam as it slices through
the water. Other boats
add still more spray,
which can seriously
hamper visibility. The
Bryants solve that prob-
lem with a special spray
on the windows that
causes water to sheet off
almost immediately.
Those thinking about
the glamour despite
costs and conditions
must also consider the
most important require-
ment of all for racing in a
closed cockpit powerboat
- a dunk test.
"You take the tests
in a simulator," Bryant
said."If you don't pass,
you can't race."
"The test was in a
pool," Robert said.
Strapped into the
simulator, you are rolled
over and about as you
might be during a racing
accident. You have to get
out of your harness, in-
sert a breathing regulator
into your mouth and get
free of the simulator.
The tests take about
15 seconds each but can
seem longer, especially
the test in which drivers
must wear black goggles
that simulate being in
dark water. Offshore
racers must also show
proficiency with SCUBA
equipment and the abil-
ity to breathe through a
regulator.
The simulator is
equipped with an open-
ing similar to that of a


typical super boat: rein-
forced cockpit, harness
and detachable steering
wheel. Racing gear is
worn for the test to du-
plicate real-life situations
as much as possible.
Father and son passed
their tests in Key West
prior to the national and
world championships
last year. Certification is
good for 12-14 months.
Having been hit a
few times, they know
the importance of such
tests. Bryant has walked
- swum? - away from
his mishaps and gotten
right back into the fray.
That he could is because
he passed the dunk test,
is safely harnessed into
a well-built boat and
participates in a sport in
which safety is a major
consideration of race
promoters and owners.
The Bryants got two
second-places (national)
and a fourth (world) in
the races at Key West,
which was one of the few
places they raced last
year.
"Mom was sick and we
were building the boat,"
Robert said.
Elizabeth "Liz" Bryant
loves racing, Al said.
"It is a good family
sport," he added.
It also is a good way to
help others.
While father and son
both love racing, they
don't do it for the money.
Whatever they win, they

give back to sponsor-
ing charities such as
Suncoast Charities for
Children, the beneficiary
of the Sarasota Super
Boat races.
They have always done
that, but when Robert
was about 12 he sug-
gested that they do even
more.
Robert persuaded
Knapp to donate a
scooter that year, and
Robert made up posters
and sold raffle tickets,
generating more than
$2,000 for the Suncoast
Charities for Children.
He continued hold-
ing raffles and made as
much as $6,000 one year.
"You can't find a bet-
ter kid," Al Bryant said.
"Lucy Nicandri (festival
director in Sarasota)
loves him to death."
According to infor-
mation on the event's
website, proceeds from
the festival have paid for
the construction of some
$14 million in facilities
serving physically and
mentally challenged
individuals. Proceeds
from the 2011 races will
benefit The Florida Cen-
ter for Child and Family
Development.
Robert plans to contin-
ue his education at State
College of Florida with
a goal of being either a
"cop or Florida Wildlife
Control agent." He has
two older brothers, Chris,
27, and Joe, 29.
Friday you can meet
and greet father and
son and the rest of their
team at the official Meet
& Greet Who's in the
Driver's Seat event from
5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the
Tropics Room of the
Hyatt Regency Sarasota,
1000 Blvd. of the Arts,
Sarasota. For information
about the hotel, call 941-
953-1234. Tickets for the
event are $5 for adults
and free for those 12 and
under. In addition to
autographs, there will be
plenty of giveaway items
for race fans.
Saturday, the boats will
be on display along the
bay in Centennial Park
at 10th Street and U.S. 41
(North Tamiami Trail,
Sarasota.)
Sunday, there will be
two heats: 11 a.m. and

'Drag Queen Bingo' not for the faint of heart


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR
While it doesn't take
an act of bravery to sit
in the audience of "Drag
Queen Bingo," it may not
sit well with those who
would rather be passively
entertained.
No matter where you
sat Friday night, June 24,
at Venice Theatre's
Pinkerton Theatre, you
were apt to be picked on
by the boisterous drag
queens, Felicity Liemont
and Heather De Haven.
It was bingo all right,


just not as normally
played.
There are rules. New
rules. Strange rules.
For example, when call-
ing the letter "O," everyone
had to put their arms up in
a circle. The punishment
for not doing so? How
about a big red lipstick kiss
on the nose, or top of the
head for fellas with few
hairs covering their scalp.
Liemont and De Haven
are quite the entertain-
ers, albeit with a very
campy routine. They
came out singing, swing-
ing their hips and mak-


ing gestures that would
make one with a puri-
tanical heart weep. But
all was in jest, and most
of the crowd laughed and
applauded at their antics.
In fact, some folks even
dressed up for the occa-
sion in '40s, '50s and '60s
attire. One lady wore a
red claw hat circa 1950s.
Another woman wore a
hot pink boa, while yet
another wore a black
dress with ruffles down
the length of it reminis-
cent of 1920s garb.
Each participant gets a
sheet of paper with four


bingo cards on it for the
four bingo games that
are played - two before
intermission and two
after. Between games, the
queens sing, dance and
tell risque jokes. Little
prizes are given to the
winner of each game,
which for the first three
were small gifts from a
flashlight to a bottle of
wine. The final game was
more special and the
winner received a $50 gift
certificate for the theater.
With Liemont's eye for
whimsy, the theater took
on the look of a black box


theater, set up in cabaret-
style seating with several
long tables and high-top
tables at either end of the
room. The event seemed
to mimic a pulp maga-
zines published in the
late 1800s through the
1950s with sensational
decor and lurid talk.
Just before the inter-
mission, Liemont sang a
song and moved similar
to Jamie Lee Curtis in
"True Lies." She ended
on her knees bent back-
ward to the floor bellow-
ing out her last note.
While the evening was


filled with self-deprecat-
ing humor and sexual
overtones, it drew lots of
laughter from the crowd
of mostly females. It is
so popular that Venice
Theatre had to add three
more dates to accommo-
date all the requests its
had for viewing.
"Drag Queen Bingo" will
be back on stage at Venice
Theatre's Pinkerton The-
atre, 140 W. Tampa Ave.,
Venice, July 7-9, 8-10 p.m.
Tickets cost $10.

Venice Lions Club elects new officers


FROM VENICE LIONS CLUB
On July 1, the Ven-

city manager at the time,
as president; Louis J.
Pappas, a pharmacist at
the Rexall drugstore, as
secretary; and J. D. Ar-
nall, of the local lumber
yard, as treasurer.
The club was spon-
sored by the Lions Club
of Sarasota. Starting from
that first meeting the Ven-

busy in the community.
It took until 1987 - 40
years - for the club to
open its doors to a wom-

death in March 2009.
The second woman
member was Lion

Beverly Kruger, who joined
the club in 1989. She is
very much the doyen of
the club, even today.
In 1990 Dr. Dee
Stephenson joined the
Lions club and in 1994
became the first woman
president of the club,
opening the floodgates to
women. Since then, the
club has had the follow-
ing presidents: Barbara

Beverly Kruger: 2001-02;
Dusty Namikas: 2005-06;
Pam Kruger: 2006-07;
Rosemary Christensen:
2007-08; Barbara McGil-

secretary; Dave Mattson, administration treasurer; John Bohan,
director; Tom Christensen, director; and Ed Lynch, lion tamer;
and Annette Goodsen, seated left, third vice president; Shelley
Massey, second vice president; Richard Namikas, president.

I GOREN BRIDGE
WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 - Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

4 J 10 7 6 2Q 9 8 5 0 K J 6 6Q 10

Partner opens the bidding with one
no trump. What do you respond?

A - The normal action is to probe for
a 4-4 major fit by asking with a
Stayman two clubs. However, with
all those secondary honors and
tenaces in the short suits, a strong
argument can be made for simply
raising to three no trump. In the
Vanderbilt Teams some years ago,
three no trump made at one table
while four spades went down a trick.

Q 2 - Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

4A103YQA7620 8746A86

The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
16 Pass 16 Pass
9
What do you bid now?

A - You have a flat 12 points and,
though partner is a favorite to have
five spades, you do not want to do
anything that will encourage him to
bid on. A rebid of one no trump fits
this hand perfectly.

Q 3 - Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:

4AKQ 102J875 0AK 3 4 4

Partner opens the bidding with one
club. What do you respond?

A - In terms of high cards, this hand
is good enough for a jump shift.
However, the fact that you are short
in opener's suit and you would like a
sixth card in your own should make
you wary. Since you have no idea
where this hand is going, respond just
one spade to leave yourself the
maximum room for investigation.

Q 4 - As South, vulnerable, you hold:

4762 A1097K0 Q10646K9


Partner opens the bidding with one
club. What do you respond?

A - In response to a one-level
opening bid, show your four-card
suits up the line. This holds true
whether responder holds both majors
or a major-minor combination,
regardless of the relative strength of
the suits. Respond one diamond.

Q 5 - Both vulnerable, as South you
holds:

AK Q5 0AKQ107636J54

Your right-hand opens the bidding
with one no trump. What action do
you take?

A - Three actions come into play:
double, three diamonds or pass. The
trouble with a double is that it might
induce partner to do something rash,
expecting more from you in high
cards. Three diamonds might steal
bidding room from the opponents,
but even so the action that appeals
most is pass. Sometimes the
opponents will play the hand in a no-
trump contract, and you will know
what to lead!

Q 6 - North-South vulnerable, as
South you hold:

6 A 4 ) A K Q 10 0 10 865.6 874


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
Pass 14 ?
What action do you take?


WEST


A - Almost all your strength is
concentrated in one suit. However,
you do have the shape for a takeout
double and your strength is
concentrated in the right suit. It is less
dangerous to act now than later, when
the auction is at a higher level, so
double.

Obesity and Back Painii
Obesity and Back Pain


DR. DAN BUSCH, DR. ERENE ROMANSKI
CHIROPRACTOR

According to a recent survey of spine
care professionals by the North
American Spine Society, the number of
obese patients being treated for spine-
related disorders has increased by 67%
over the past five years. Eighty-seven
percent of the spine care professionals
agreed that obesity plays a major role in
back pain, and 94% recommended


weight loss as a treatment for obese
patients. Fifty-five percent of the spine
care professionals found that weight loss
resulted in major improvements in obese
patients' symptoms. The three most
common back problems in obese
patients are degenerative disc disease,
spondylolisthesis (slippage of the lower
back disc), and disc rupture or
herniation. Clearly, weight loss should
be a top priority of obese patients with
back pain.

of meat is triglycerides. An
accumulation of triglyc-
erides in the abdomen
makes it stick out. Triglyc-
erides have a function.
They're a source of energy
for the body and its cells.
Excess calories are stored
as triglycerides for later
use.
Triglycerides have a
hand, along with choles-
terol, in plugging arteries
and thereby increasing
the risk of heart attacks
and strokes. They aren't
as involved as choles-
terol is, but they can't be
ignored.
A normal triglyceride
reading previously was
less than 150 mg/dL (1.7
mmol/L). Values from 150
to 199 (2.25) are consid-
ered borderline, and ones
from 200 (2.26) to 499
(5.64) are high. The Ameri-
can Heart Association has
lowered the normal triglyc-
eride level to 100 mg/dL
(1.13 mmol/L).
At extremely high levels,
triglycerides can inflame
the pancreas - pancre-
atitis.
Weight loss, limiting
alcoholic drinks, greatly
decreasing the intake of
sugar and sugary foods
and cutting back on the
amount of fatty meats and
other fatty foods bring
triglycerides down.
If the above steps don't
budge the triglyceride
reading, medicines can
lower them. Lopid, Tricor
and niacin work well.
Statins, the drugs that
the entire population
(so it seems) takes for
cholesterol control also
have a lowering effect on
triglycerides.
You might not have
heard of the metabolic
syndrome, but it's a com-
mon condition consisting
of obesity, a large waist
- greater than 40 inches
(102 cm) for men, 35
inches (88 cm) for women
- low HDL cholesterol
(good cholesterol), a
slightly higher-than-nor-
mal fasting blood sugar
and higher-than-normal
blood pressure. High
triglycerides also are part
of the syndrome. This
constellation of findings
greatly increases the risk
of stroke and heart attack.


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
My husband, 46, died sud-
denly and unexpectedly
from a heart attack. An au-
topsy showed that he died
from what the doctor said
was a minor heart attack.
How does a minor heart
attack kill? It was major for
him and me. - C.C.
ANSWER: The pathologist
who performed the autopsy
must have found that only
a small section of heart was
involved, and only a small
heart artery was obstructed.
Minor heart attacks can lead
to major complications,
including death. They can
generate abnormal heart-
beats, so abnormal that
the heart's pumping action
stops.
You have my deepest
sympathy.
The booklet on heart
attacks explains why they
happen and how they're
prevented. Readers can
order a copy by writing:
Dr. Donohue - No. 102,
Box 536475, Orlando, FL
32853-6475. Enclose a
check or money order (no
cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6
Can. with the recipient's
printed name and ad-
dress. Please allow four
weeks for delivery.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
Two years ago, I had bursi-
tis in my left shoulder. Two
weeks ago, I got it in my
right shoulder. On both oc-
casions, the X-ray showed
calcium deposits in the
shoulders.
I take a daily calcium
tablet. Could it contrib-
ute to the calcium in my
shoulders? -Y.M.
ANSWER: Your calcium
supplement has nothing to
do with calcium deposits
in your shoulder or in the
inflammation of the bursa.
Those deposits were
laid down by your body
to protect the shoulder
against inflammation. It's
one of the ways the body
deals with it.
Dr. Donohue regrets that
he is unable to answer in-
dividual letters, but he will
incorporate them in his
column whenever possi-
ble. Readers may write him
or request an order form
of available health news-
letters at PO. Box 536475,
Orlando, FL 32853-6475.
Readers may also order

Ketchup concern


Dear Readers: For the
past few days, I've been
sharing "Blast From the
Past" hints and informa-
tion from readers who
have written in through
the years. Here are some
more favorite hints. -

Storing ketchup
Dear Heloise: Can you
help put an end to an
argument between my
husband and me?
After a BOTTLE OF
KETCHUP has been
opened, shouldn't it be
kept in the refrigerator? -
A Reader, San Antonio
The age-old question
of cold ketchup! We took
your question to a leading
manufacturer, and here's
what it had to say.
The manufacturer's
recommendation is that
once condiments like
ketchup and mustard
have been opened, they
should be refrigerated to
help maintain the flavor.
They both are shelf-
stable because of the acid
level. However, how long
should you keep it, and
what is the temperature
of your kitchen or pantry?
Most of us do keep it in
the refrigerator, though.
The experts say to
refrigerate ketchup after
opening for best results.
What do you say? Let me
know. Write to Heloise,
P.O. Box 795000, San
Antonio, TX 78279-5000;
fax to 210-HELOISE (435-
6473); or email Heloise(at)
Heloise.com. - Heloise

Hints from Heloise

'Shower of
casseroles'
Dear Heloise: On the
eve of elective surgery,
my friends had a dinner
party for me. Not only did
that distract me from the
operation, but at the end of
the evening, there was an in-
sulated cooler full of frozen
casseroles. Each guest had
"showered" me with a deli-
cious dish, which my hus-
band and I are now enjoying
as I recuperate. My friends
are so clever and generous.
I just wanted to share their
idea with your readers. -
Linda R., Manhattan, Kan.

Sweet-smelling
fridge
Dear Heloise: The other
day, after cleaning out my
fridge, I wanted to put
some baking soda in it as a
deodorizer. Guess what? I
was all out of baking soda.
I remembered my mom
said that a few charcoal
briquettes (Heloise here:
Don't use briquettes that
have lighter fluid on them.)
placed in a plastic dish
would work just as well.
They did!-Natalie G.,
Colorado Springs, Colo.

Homeboy in jail says gang

is no substitute for family


DEAR ABBY: I'm a
16-year-old gangbanger
looking at spending the
rest of my life isolated in
a little bird cage. Every
day I ask myself the same
question. Was it really
worth throwing my life
away? All I did was help a
"homeboy" from getting
hurt. I got caught and
was convicted on eight
charges that led to more
than four consecutive life
sentences. That ain't no
joke! The sad part of it is
that the so-called home-
boy turned his back on
me when I needed him
most. I should've pulled
away when I could've.
The main reason for
this letter is to help
parents and teens like
myself who are choosing
the wrong path to realize
what you're getting into
while there is still time.
Tell parents out there, if
you see your kid is mess-
ing up in school, using
drugs, hanging with the
wrong crowd, anything
that would lead to gang
affiliation, reach out and
help them while you still
can before they're in
too deep. They (teens)
turn toward gang life in
search of the love they
need from their family.
Or they want to fit in and
be cool.
To all the gangbangers
who think you're cool
and being a gangster, get
away from it while you
still can. It may be fun at
the moment, but it's not
when you get caught and
you have to spend the
rest of your life behind
bars. There's better things
to do in life than hang
around all day frying
your brain from all the
drugs and alcohol. Trust
me, when you're behind
bars thinking about what
you did, you'll be missing
your family the most. You
think your homeboys are
going to be there for you?
Well, let me tell you this
... they're not! I guarantee
you that the only people
who are actually willing
to change places with
you are your parents.
Your REAL family. Do you
think your homeboys
want to do time for you?


Dear Abby

Hell, no!
I hope this letter helps
some people out there. I
just want to make a con-
tribution to society before
I get locked up in the
dungeon forever. This is
to show you not all gang-
bangers are evil and cruel.
Life is short. Live it smart,
not stupid. Now I can
finally answer the ques-
tion I ask myself, "Was it
all worth it?" The money,
the girls and all the mate-
rial things go faster than
you think and could all
be taken away with the
snap of a finger from the
split second of a decision
you make. It's not worth
your life. - HOMESICK
HOMEBOY
DEAR HOMESICK:
You write well and your
letter contains a powerful
message. I'm printing it
without editing. Let your
experience be a warning
to others. I hope from the
sad circumstances of your
life some other young
person will realize that a
gang is a poor substitute
for a family and the path
to success does not stop
at the street corner.
If a troubled young
person is in school, he
or she should talk to a
counselor. If there is a
church nearby, talk to a
priest or minister. There
are alternatives to joining
a gang, but you need to
reach out.

Venice Gondolier Sun readers: Look for the puzzle solution in the Our Town section.


I HOROSCOPE
ARIES (March 21-April19). As you interact
with people, you put your attention on their
most positive characteristics, and they feel safe
in the approving and supportive energy coming
from you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You may notice that
you're thinking of a certain someone more often
and in a different way. Also, this person has a vivify-
ing effect on your mood.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Someone believes you


can only see you as magnificent. You will work hard
to live up to this person's estimation of you.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). One of the most
important ways you can let people know you care is
also the easiest way: Tell them. You don't have to be
a poet,just speak simply from the heart.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your sign mate MickJagger
famously sang that time was on his side. It's on
yours, too. You befriend time as you use the passing
moments to your highest advantage and hold firm
to the belief that the best is yet to come.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Give credit where it's


underplay your value as a human being. Celebrate
yourself for what you do well, and the rest will
improve.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23).You may have competitive
knee jerk reactions or aggressive impulses - cer-
tain people bring out the fierce spirit in you. Yet, you
also have the self-control to soften and guide your
feelings appropriately.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).There are so many
people who appreciate and love you that it would
be a shame for you to focus only on the one or two
who don't. Give your love where it's sure to multiply


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). No matter who
you are or what your position, you will never be im-
mune to rejection. If you are human, it is inevitable.
But the more you accept yourself the less you worry
about the occasional slights of the world.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).There is an illusion
that is in need of demolition, and it's best destroyed
before Friday. Its absence will free you to embrace
your life the way it is and yourselfthe way you are.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You have emotional
flexibility now and will play with many different
modalities and tones until you come up with a


are made in the image of greatness, and this person due, especially if it's due to you. This is no time to


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Just as tackling physical
hurdles will help you gain strength, agility and
confidence, overcoming mental obstacles will do
the same for your way of thinking.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 29).You are a bold
protector of loved ones and all you stand for. Profes-
sional needs and wants are satisfied in July.There
will be fun in your private life when old friendships
ignite anew. In September, you step up your
self-care with exercise and health improvements.
October is your chance to seal a deal. Capricorn and
Sagittarius people are your supportive fans. Your
lucky numbers are: 30,1,24,38 and 26.

Opening lead: Ace of J%

This deal is from a team match
some years ago to select the English
team for a series of international
matches. Cover the East and West
hands and decide how you would
plan the play.
At both tables West overcalled one
spade and both Norths decided that a
penalty double, at this vulnerability,
might not compensate for a missed
game. A cue-bid those days simply
showed game-going values and did
not imply any specific distribution.
Both Souths reached the small slam


in clubs and, at both tables, West led
the ace of spades and switched to a
trump. What now?
Both declarers cashed the king of
spades, discarding a heart from hand,
then ruffed a spade. Next came four
rounds of trumps. After following to
two of these, what should West
discard?
At one table the choice was a spade
and a heart, so declarer spurned the
heart finesse in favor of cashing the
king and ace, dropping the queen and
landing the contract. At the other
table, the defender saw what was
coming and elected to discard a spade
and a diamond instead. Here South
took the heart finesse and went down
a trick when he took the diamond
finesse on East's forced return.
West's decision to bare the king of
diamonds was imaginative defense,
but it gave the declarer an additional
chance, which was overlooked.
Before committing to the heart
finesse, declarer should cash the ace
of diamonds. When that fetches the
king, 12 tricks are there. If the king
does not appear declarer can shift his
attention to hearts and decide how to
tackle the suit.
How should the slam be played if
West discards two spades, setting up
dummy's jack? You choose.

Venice skies will

sparkle plenty
D ogs may cower under couches Monday night but most
Americans (the ones from the United States at least) will
celebrate the nation's birthday with fireworks.
Along the Cultural Coast of Florida, the skies will be lit up from
Anna Maria Island to North Port at sunset or about 9 p.m.
Those of us in Venice will be surrounded by the color and noise
associated with America's birthday party
In Sarasota, enjoy that city's display from Bayfront Park, Island
Park or, for a fee, Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, which offers
food and drink concessions, a concert and some of the town's best
views.
Anyone at Siesta Key for the boat races should plan to stay
on to enjoy the fireworks from there. Find a place south of the
volleyball courts along Crescent Beach which is south of the
beach recently named the number one beach in the U.S. by Dr.
Beach.
Sarasota and Siesta Key fireworks fans may also be able
to see the show from Longboat Key if the air is clear. Those on
Longboat will likely be able to enjoy the show from Anna Maria
Island.
In Venice, the fireworks are set up at the South Jetty. Any spot on
the beach south of the jetties is good but so is the parking lot near
the post office.You might not see the lower displays but you won't
be stuck in traffic after the show. The view is also good from the
Nokomis Public Beach to the north of the jetties.
The North Port show will be at Dallas White Park.
Have beach chair, will travel.

Fourth Fest brings bands, lumberjacks and fireworks


BY BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The boom and sparkle of fireworks is the
traditional way to celebrate Independence
Day with a bang.
This year's Fourth Fest will be held Sunday
and Monday at Laishley Park in Punta Gorda.
This year's celebration features a Battle of the
Bands, lightning-footed lumberjacks and a dozen
waterslides and bounce houses for keeping the
kids cool and content.
'This is one of the largest events of the year,
so we wanted to grow it and give the community
more fun things to do, and for families to do
together," explained Jerry Cleffi, event director
for Smugglers Event Management, which is in
charge of the festivities. "Instead of one day with
the fireworks as the draw, it's become a full, two-
day, family-oriented event," Cleffi continued.
Both days will have non-stop activities from
10 a.m. to 10 p.m. The cost is $3 at the gate for
adults, with no charge for kids 12 and under. The
gate fee will go to help pay for the fireworks.
In recent years, sponsoring a fireworks display
has become so expensive that communities
all over the country have cancelled them. It's
nearly impossible today for one sponsor to pay
for the fireworks. But with everyone pitching in,
it can be done.


Water-Mania's inflatable slides and bounce
houses will use 500 feet of the park space. For
$10, kids will get a wristband that lets them jump
up and cool down all day long.
"It's always so hot on the July 4th weekend,
and kids feel miserable in that kind of heat," Cleffi
explained. "So we wanted a place where they
could get out of the heat, cool off and have fun."
Everyone in the family can enjoy the Paul
Bunyan International Lumberjack Show, which
will perform three shows each day.These lumber-
jacks have been featured on ESPN, Letterman,
Leno, and performed all over the world.Their
show amazes the crowd with chopping, sawing,
axe throwing, and log rolling lumberjacks and
dogs.Yes, dogs. Performances are at noon, 2
p.m. and 4 p.m. each day.
The Battle of the Bands starts at 5 p.m. on
Sunday. Five bands, chosen as finalists b
ased on their audition tapes, will battle it out for
the $1,500 grand prize. Each band will play about
30 to 45 minutes. A panel of three judges will evalu-
ate the bands on stage presence, musicianship, and
audience reaction.
"It's exciting that the finalists are really diverse,
ranging in age from about 15 to 60," said Cleffi.
One band's members are in high-school, another
has college aged musicians, and the others are
"older."


Will they be able to roll this log without falling off? Find out at one of the Paul Bunyan lumber-
jack shows.


"One of the bands is even from Palm Beach,
they heard about the competition and sent us
their tape," Cleffi added.
In addition to the cash grand prize, the winning
band will open for The Boogiemen on Monday.


The Boogiemen will then play the rest of the
night. Fireworks will start at 9 p.m. Monday

parking information, go to

Bands to battle for the title at Fourth Fest


The Battle of the Bands begins at 5 p.m. |,.,.,.
Sunday at the Fourth Fest at Laishley Park. H


New local band

has a passion

for power

BY CHEL FREEMAN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
e prepared to experience all of the science
fiction glory that is Passion for Power at the
Battle of the Bands Sunday.
This group is not your average band. In fact, it's
hard to classify what they are at all: part music,
part theater, part laser light show.
Passion for Power exists solely to bring you
their original rock opera entitled "Death of the
Illuminati." Band members include Tom Lapp on
keyboard, lead vocals and songwriting, Jim Stein
on drums, Zoid Asteroid Williamson on guitar,
Hank Hinjosa on the second keyboard, Linda
Murray on backup vocals and Jill Koltz on backup
vocals.
Kiefer, thinks it will be difficult to narrow down
representative elements from their nearly two
hour opera for the 30 minutes they will be allotted
in the competition.
"This is really meant for arenas and our first,


Tayzer takes us back

to the '80s in debut

performance
BY CHEL FREEMAN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
What are teenagers up to these days? If
you ask the 15 and 16 year olds of local
band Tayzer, they will tell you they spend
their free time revitalizing classic '80s tunes.
The group will be introducing themselves to the
masses during the Battle of the Bands Sunday.
Jack Micheal on lead guitar and vocals,
Anthony Hamel on lead vocals and Dalton Reef
on the drums have combined their talents to form
Tayzer. Though they may be young, the boys of
Tayzer are serious.
Manager, Mike Russell is also the father of Jack
Michael. "They've been practicing for six months,
but this will be their first performance." Russell
explained. "I wouldn't let them play in public until
they were ready."
Jack Michael has been playing the guitar for
four years and, impressively, was formally trained
by Tommy Skeoch of the famous band Tesla.
Michael has been playing along with band mate


big show will be in Champagne, Ill., at the Canopy
Club in either September or October." Kiefer said.
"At that time, we'll be streaming live online world-
wide." This grand unveiling is apropos the larger
than life show itself. Involving costume changes,
large screens on which the story will unfold and,
we can't forget, the laser lights, "Death of the
Illuminati is quite a display."
Award-winning choreographer, Frank Regan,
who worked with the Miami City Ballet, was even
involved in the project.
"I'd relate our style to Trans-Siberian Orchestra."
Kiefer explained.
"The show starts 10,000 years ago with aliens
coming to Earth, creating hybrid people." He
continued. "The story behind the show may not be
understood by young kids, but 18 and up are like,
'Wow!'"
Though we will only be getting a taste of the
entire show, Kiefer suggests listeners will like the
track "Rock and Roll Evangelist."'
"Death of the Illuminati is about organized
religion and bad government, but we don't pick on
anyone in particular.You have to remember this is
a science fiction story," he said.

Reef for the past two years.
The audience can be prepared for '80s favor-
ites such as "Crazy Train" and "You Give Love a
Bad Name."
"These kids are beyond their years in playing
this music." Russell added. "You can't help but be
excited for them while they're up there."
Tayzer is currently working on original music,
but Russell said it's still a work in progress. They
plan to see how the performance during the Battle
of the Bands goes before committing to future
show dates.
"We got a surprise for the crowd at the begin-
ning of the show." Russell said, foreshadowing
what's to be expected at their debut performance.


Band travels the

Highway to make

it to the Battle

of the Bands
BY CHEL FREEMAN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
he self-proclaimed "hottest thing to come
out of South Florida since the summer"
will be coming to town. Reborn Highway is
choosing Punta Gorda for their first west coast
appearance. They are scheduled to compete
during the Battle of the Bands in Laishley Park
during the Fourth Fest Sunday.
Hailing from Palm Beach County, these boys
are bringing back the good old days of music.
"Our style is really different." Drummer, Rich
Conklin, said. "It's an old, '70s soul, kind of rock,
funk, blues thing."
Conklin and the rest of the band, consisting
of singer Nash Carey, guitarist Josh Pertnoy and
bass guitarist Ryan Mishkim, combine their efforts to
write the music of Reborn Highway. Sounding similar
to Gov't Mule and the Allman Brothers, the band has
something for everyone. They have a wide range of
influences from Queen to Stevie Ray Vaughan to
AC/DC to John Coltrane.
"We get a wide spectrum of fans." Conklin

Jeremy Connley on lead vocals and rhythm
guitar, Sean Dooley on backup vocals and lead
guitar, Melissa Santa Maria on drums and
Chas Fullwood playing bass.
When asked how they chose the name of their
band, Connley said it happened casually.
"I was looking through a medical dictionary
one day and came across the word anatomize
and the meaning behind it just grabbed my atten-
tion. So, I brought it up to Sean and Melissa at
the time and they loved the meaning, too. From
then on, it just kind of stuck."
Merriam-Webster defines anatomize as "to
cut into pieces in order to display or examine
the structure and use of its parts."Though we
don't typically think of rockers as hyper-analytical
people, this band's unique sound may prove they
live up to their name.
"All I can say about our sound is that it's very
experimental, rock, metal and that we all like
a large variety of bands and styles of music."
Connley explained. "Anything that has powerful
emotion and feeling is what influences us."


explained. "We sound like a brand new, 1960's
band, if that makes sense."
Reborn Highway has toured up and down the
East coast of Florida, from Miami to Daytona
Beach. If audiences like what they see over
the holiday weekend, they don't have to travel
across the 'alley' to see them again. The band
will be performing at this year's Rocktoberfest in
Cape Coral as well as inYbor City later
in the year.
Their music is available on iTunes under
the band's former name, Junebug and Reborn
Highway. They have since lost Junebug, but
the Highway plays on. Just this past May,
they recorded a five song EP, entitled Rebirth,
containing all original work. Conklin says the
song Could've Been is their most popular. We'll
be watching out for it during the upcoming battle.
Until then, fans can log onto
www.rebornhighway.com to learn more.

"We perform originals and never play any
covers." Connley continued. "We all have our
hands in writing the music and everyone helps
everyone. All of us have good ideas and no
person in the group is perfect and that's what it's
about. The imperfections play a big part of how
we write because one mistake could be just the
right sound that makes the song perfect."
Embracing imperfections is something every-
one can relate to.
"We try to target all audiences; that's what it's
about right? Reaching as many people as you
can and making them feel what you feel when
they hear your songs," Connley said.
Not shy on ambition, Connley shared his goal,
"To get as big as possible and tour the world,
sharing our music with as many people as we
possibly can and for as long as we can."
He encourages people to view the band's vid-
eos on YouTube and chime in with their opinions.

Make plans for a

birthday bash for

Snooty in Bradenton


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
It takes a lot of green to maintain an 89-inch
waistline - lettuce, kale, cabbage, apples and
more. That plus some vitamin supplements
and carrots is the basic diet of Snooty, Florida's
most famous manatee and the star boarder at the
Parker Manatee Aquarium in Bradenton.
Born on July 21, 1948, in the old Miami Aquar-
ium, Snooty has lived in Bradenton since 1949,
blossoming to a cute and cuddly 1,215 pounds
on its 9-foot, 7-inch frame. Snooty moved to its
present aquarium in 1993. The larger 60,000-gal-
lon pool has room for three manatees. On occa-
sion since 1998, Snooty has had some short-
and long-term guests because the aquarium is
a second stage rehabilitation facility operated in
conjunction with Florida Fish and Wildlife. There
have been 19 guests to date. When rehabilitated,
they are released back into the wild. Except for
those visits Snooty has collected more human
friends and fans over the years and also helped
educate humans about the species. According to
the museum, Snooty has had more than 1 million
visitors since its arrival in Bradenton.
Snooty's regular feeding times are at 11:15
a.m., 1 p.m., 2:45 p.m. and 3:45 p.m. Monday
through Saturday and at 1 p.m., 2:45 p.m. and
3:45 p.m. Sunday. A keeper talks about Snooty
and manatees in general and is available to
answer questions from visitors.
In addition to viewing Snooty from above, there
are windows into the side of the aquarium from a


lower level.
Snooty's 63rd birthday bash festival is
scheduled from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. on July 16 in the
museum's Spanish Plaza. In addition to children's
games, cookies and juice for the children, there
will be wildlife awareness exhibits. There will be
reduced admission all day that day: $8 for adults,
$7 for seniors and $6 for children 4-12. Food and
drinks will be available for purchase.
In preparation for the big event, area
children from preschool through sixth grade
are being asked to design birthday cards for
Snooty who also has the distinction of being
the first manatee on record to have a recorded
birth date. Cards must be received at the mu-
seum by 5 p.m. July 11 for judging. Prizes will
be awarded in several categories the morning of
the birthday bash. Entries will be exhibited at the
party. The entry form is available on line at www.
southfloridamuseum.org.
The museum is at 201 West 10th St. in
downtown Bradenton. The complex includes
the digital Bishop Planetarium and the
Parker Manatee Aquarium (Snooty's home).
It is open10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday through
Saturday and from noon - 5 p.m. on Sunday.
The museum is closed on Monday from August
through December. Admission is $15.95 for
adults, $13.95 for seniors (65 and over), $11.95
for children ages 4-12 and free for members and
children 3 and younger.
For information, call 941-746-4131 or visit

Area actors and theaters are pulling together to save the Golden Apple


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Area actors and theaters are pulling
together to save America's oldest dinner
theater, The Golden Apple, in Sarasota.
Cruising toward its 40th anniversary in
December, the theater encountered more than
its share of rough seas. A second theater in
Lakewood Ranch ran into problems and as
the economy worsened, parking problems
increased with construction of a roundabout
near the original theater at Main and Pineapple
and a downtown garage behind the theater
took away the theater's major parking lot for
far too long. Confusion about where to park


escalated, sales dropped and the theater could
no longer afford its association with Equity, the
theatrical union.
When Apple owners, Robert and Roberta
Turoff sold their building recently with a lease-
back agreement, most fans thought the life line
was at hand. Sadly, that was not the case. It costs
a lot of money to run a theater, especially in an
older building in need of some face lifting.The
Turoffs used their own money to pay the last of
the debts, and no way to keep the theater going
without some outside help.
Among the first to throw a life ring into the seas
are local actors Jenny Aldrich and Steve Carroll
who will perform their one-person shows back


to back on July 26 as "An Evening of Lindberg."
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for those who want to
purchase a light summer dinner. The show follows
at 8 p.m.
The first half of the show features Jenny
Aldrich in her one-woman show, "Hour of Gold"
which is about Anne Morrow Lindberg's flight to
the Orient with husband Charles and the tragic
kidnapping of their son. The performance was
inspired by the book, Gift From the Sea" which
Mrs. Lindberg wrote some 55 years ago.
Act two features Carroll as "The Lone Eagle."
Thoroughly researched by Carroll who also
performs as Lindberg, "The Lone Eagle" is a
stunning portrayal of one of aviation's most fa-


mous men while also recounting one of the great
tragedies and mysteries of that era.
Tickets for "An Evening of Lindberg" are $45
per person. Dinner is extra with most items priced
under $10 on the lite-bite menu.
The Golden Apple Dinner Theatre is located
at 25 N. Pineapple Ave., Sarasota. For reservations,
visit www.thegoldenapple.com or call 941-366-5454.
If you cannot attend the performance but wish
to make a donation, send it to the theater at 25 N.
Pineapple Ave., Sarasota, FL 34236.
You also can help by attending Drag Queen
Bingo each Friday and Saturday or An Evening With
Roberta MacDonald through Sunday Beginning July
6, is "Stop the World, I Want to Get Off."


Rising opera star, Kathleen Kim, returns to Sarasota Opera


PROVIDED BY THE SARASOTA OPERA

Rising opera star, soprano Kathleen Kim,
returns to Sarasota Opera to sing the title
role in the 2012 Sarasota Opera produc-
tion of Donizetti's "Lucia di Lammermoor." Kim
was an apprentice artist at Sarasota Opera in
2002 and returned as a studio artist in 2005.
During the 2010-2011 season, Kim ap-
peared as Madame Mao in the Metropolitan
Opera's premiere of "Nixon in China," which was
broadcast in theaters nationwide via the MET HD
program, and reprised her acclaimed portrayal
of Zerbinetta in "Ariadne auf Naxos" also at the
Metropolitan Opera.
In addition, Kim's 2010-2011 season included
appearances as The Queen of the Night from
"Die Zauberfl6te" at the Bavarian State Opera,
Oscar in "Un Ballo in Maschera" at the Lyric
Opera of Chicago and Poppea in "Agrippina" at


the Boston Lyric Opera.
"I can't even describe how excited I am to go
back to sing my role debut of Lucia at Sarasota
Opera," says Kim. "Lucia has been one of my
dream roles since I was a student. Sarasota Op-
era performed 'Lucia di Lammermoor' when I was
an apprentice artist at Sarasota Opera in 2002
and of course I sang in the chorus. I remember
dreaming of singing the title role at every perfor-
mance. Sarasota Opera is a very special place
for me because it was my first apprentice artist
program after graduation. During my time there
I learned so much that schools can't teach, the
experience of live theater and being a performer.
Because of my familiarity with the rehearsal pro-
cess and the number of performances they do, I
knew Sarasota Opera would be the perfect place
for me to do my first Lucia. I am so glad I waited!"
Kim will be joined on stage by Lee Poulis,
last seasons villainous Don Giovanni, as Lucia's


spiteful brother, Enrico. In addition, Joshua Kohl
returns, seen last season as Don Ottavio in "Don
Giovanni," as Edgardo andYoung-Bok Kim, who
was Colline in last season's "La bohbme," returns
as Raimondo, Lucia's tutor. Stage director,
Allison Grant, who directed the 2009 production
of "Die Zauberfl6te'," returns to direct and Sarasota
Opera favorite and Maestro Anthony Barrese will
conduct. Sung in Italian with English supertitles,
"Lucia di Lammermoor" runs from Feb. 18 - Marh 24.
Sarasota Opera opens the fall of it's 2011/2012
season with Puccini's tender love story "Madama
Butterfly" starring soprano Asako Tamura in the
title role who last bowed in Sarasota as Amalia in
the 2006 production of "I masnadieri." Return-
ing after his triumphant turn as Oronte in last
season's "I Lombardi alla prima crociata," Rafael
Davila will sing the role of the callous U.S. Naval
Officer B.F Pinkerton. Mezzo-soprano NinaYo-
shida Nelsen will make her Sarasota Opera debut


as Butterfly's maid, Suzuki, and Marco Nistic6
returns as American consul Sharpless. Sung in
Italian with English supertitles, Madama Butterfly
runs from Oct. 28 - Nov. 15.
The 2012 Winter Opera Festival opens on
Feb. 11, with a brand new production of Bizet's
"Carmen." Mezzo-soprano Fredrika Brillembourg
will make her Sarasota Opera debut in the title
role. Not seen in Sarasota since 1995, tenor
Antonio Nagore will return to the Sarasota Opera
stage as the obsessive, love stricken Don Jose.
Carmen will be performed in French with English
supertitles and will run from Feb. 11 - March 24.
Additional performances for the 2011/2012
season include "Otello," March 3 - 25 and
"Vanessa," March 10 - March 24.
Sarasota Opera is located at 61 N. Pineapple
Ave., Sarasota.

Neville backed by all-stars at Summer Fest


BY CHRIS PORTER
EXECUTIVE EDITOR
Songwriter/music producer Greg Clark is
getting the band back together for one
night of Crescent City music.
With Aaron Neville's regular quintet just com-
ing off the road, and the New Orleans singing
star booked to play Fourth of July weekend in
Port Charlotte, Clark was charged with bringing
together the group of musicians worthy of back-
ing the master of the smooth falsetto.
Clark drew from the deep well of New Orleans
musicians to gather players for a one-of-a-kind
experience.
"These are hand-picked musicians we got
together for recording purposes a few years ago,"'
Clark explained on the phone. These are some
of the best musicians at their instruments playing
today"
At the center of it will be guitarist Les Getrex,
who has worked with some of the biggest names
in the business over the years, including spend-
ing nearly a decade with rock and roll pioneer
Fats Domino's orchestra. Clark and songwriting
partner Johnny Maxwell worked with Getrex on
his 2006 album, 300 Miles.That's the project
that first gathered the musicians who'll be in
Saturday night's show.
Saxophonist, clarinetist and singer Brian

player Tracy Griffin played on that record. Both
are regular bandmates of Neville's friend and
mentor, Allen Touissant, and both appeared last
season on the HBO series, Treme, a show
about post-Katrina New Orleans. They're in a
scene at a recording studio, and Toussaint tells
the rest to the horns to back off a part and "give
Breeze some room to play."
Joining them will highly regarded violinist
Michael Ward.
The rhythm section will consist of New
Orleans drummer Aaron Neville Quintet regular
Earl Smith Jr., and Fort Myers bassist David
C. Johnson, who serves as musical director for
Neville's Quintet. Rounding out the ensemble will
be Michael Goods, who is Neville's regular piano
player and accompanist.
Clark and Maxwell will be out there jamming
as well. Maxwell himself is a former Motown
prodigy who had a hit with "Cool Jerk" before
serving a tour in Vietnam. Clark said each of the
musicians will get some time on stage to highlight
their talents.
"These guys know each other and they are so
talented, they can play anything together,"' Clark
said, adding that they will get in some rehearsal
time when they arrive in Florida this week. "They
prefer not to know exactly what they're going to
do. They want to be 'in the moment.'"
Of course there will also be plenty of time for


Aaron Neville to sing "Tell it Like It Is" and many
of the great songs he's sung over the years as a
solo artist, as a member of the Neville Brothers
and with his duet partner Linda Ronstadt.
"This is going to be something special,"' Clark

Have a redneck, white and blue Fourth of July


BY CHEL FREEMAN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
What to do for the upcoming summer
holiday? Brad Paisley says it best: "I've
got the perfect place in mind. It's in the
middle of nowhere, only one way to get there; you
gotta get a little mud on the tires."
Welcome to the weekend retreat that is Red-
neckYacht Club.
Punta Gorda is home to Florida's largest
mudding track complete with trails and camping.
Established in 2009, Redneck Yacht Club has
been providing an outdoor playground for dirt
lovers near and far.
"There is something for everyone," Marketing
Director Kellie Durrante, said.
"There are as many 70-year-old people at the
park as there are 20-year-old people and people-
watching is the best part!"
Visitors are sure to get an eye-full during the
RYC 4th of July Fireworks Weekend. Festivities
begin at 8 a.m. Friday and end at 4 p.m. Sunday.
Highlights of the weekend include the Calendar
Girls taking the stage at 8 p.m. Friday, followed
by a DJ at 9 p.m. On Saturday there will be ATV
racing at 4 p.m. and Bikini Bull Riding at 8 p.m..


Local talent, Chris MacArthur will be entertaining
the crowd with his country songs at 9 p.m.The
fireworks display begins at 9 p.m.
Admission is $30 for a day pass or $40 for the
entire weekend. Children under 12 are free, but
minors will need a two-parent waiver to enter the
park.
"This is a party environment, but we do have
a camping area as well that is more of a family
environment." Durrante noted. "We will also have
obstacle courses for the kids over the holiday
weekend."
If you're looking to get down and dirty as more
than just a spectator, there will be multiple races
on Saturday amounting to not just bragging
rights, but various cash prizes. There purely for
the fun of it? With four different mud holes to
choose from and several dry trails through the
woods for a more relaxing ride, there's plenty to
do on your own time. RYC also offers a sepa-
rate ATV riding area so participants don't have
to worry about larger vehicles. Primitive
camping sites offer an escape from the daily
grind and food vendors on site minimize the
hassle for guests.
After the long weekend, be sure to take a

drive through the ATV/buggy wash on site
at RYC. High-powered spray nozzles
conveniently wash the evidence away u
ntil next time.
As if the existing 800 acres weren't
enough, expansion is the future for RYC. "We're


about to build a motocross park and ATV park
separately." Durrante explained. "We look forward
to it this fall."
The Redneck Yacht Club is located at
44570 Bermont Road, Punta Gorda. For more
information, call 941-505-8465.

PROVIDED BY THE VISUAL ARTS CENTER

The Visual Arts Center's state of the art
Technology Lab is offering two summer
camps on film- making for youngsters in
grades 7 - 9, beginning July 6 and ending
July 29.
Students will be encouraged to finish a film
short and enter the first Peace River Film Festival.
Each camp runs from 10 a.m. to noon on
Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at the Visual Arts
Center, 210 Maud St., Punta Gorda.
The first two weeks camp is all about the key
ingredient in any good movie - the story. Students
will learn how to take their ideas for a film and
develop it into a screenplay.
Special attention will be paid to story and char-


acter development. Students will use professional
screen-writing tools to format their screenplays in
the Tech Lab computers. The class will be taught
by experienced screen-writer, Keith Tracy.
Weeks three and four are all about the
technical aspect of shooting a film. Students
will develop a story board and shot list for their
screenplay.They will actually film their films
using the Center's professional grade equipment
(sound, cameras, lights). They will then learn to
edit using Tech Lab software and save to DVD.
For more information on the film festival, go to
www.peaceriverfilmfestival.org.
Each camp costs $60 separately or at a
discounted rate of $100 for both.
Call 941-639- 8810 to register for the class.
Space is limited.

Venice's

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Venice's circus legacy lives on at the
Historic Asolo Theater in Sarasota where
Barry Lubin appears through July 31 as
Grandma.
The Clown College graduate created his fa-
mous character in Venice in time for the debut of
the 1975 tour of The Ringling Bros. and Barnum
& Bailey Circus. Like Grandma, Clown College
also was created in Venice.
It was the idea of Ringling show owner Irvin
Feld when he created that show's second travel-


OMEN;


even though the circus itself departed in 1992.
Grandma toured with the Ringling show's red and
blue troupes for four years and, in 1982 began
a long-time association with the Big Apple
Circus. Lubin became that show's director
of clowning and also served as a production
consultant.
Grandma has earned laughs and giggles
all over the world while Lubin climbed into the
hierarchy of great clowns. A member of the
International Clown Hall of Fame in Wisconsin
where the Ringling show began, Lubin also
appeared on television and even at Carnegie

Portside Tavern keeps


the beer cold


Tasty tidbits about r
places to eat around the area.


BY BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Portside Tavern keeps the beer cold. Joe
Grieger, who owns the Portside Tavern in
Port Charlotte with his wife Tammy, keep
investing in top notch beer coolers, checking their
temperatures regularly, and serving the cold beer
in icy cold mugs.
"You won't see any of those plastic glasses
here," said Grieger. "And our bartenders know
how to keep rotating the mugs so every beer is
served in the coldest mug. And every time the
customer orders another beer, it's served in a
fresh, icy cold mug."
To beer drinkers, that's big. When you want
a beer, you want it to be really cold. So you'd
think Grieger might charge a little more for a
beer since he's gone that extra mile to make
sure every beer sold gets the cold treatment.
Instead, Portside Tavern sells most beer for
$1.50 or $2.
'We're not in business to rip people off,"
Grieger explained. "And since we own the bar,
we don't have the overhead that someone in the
mall or in a fancy building has, that forces them to
charge $4 for the same beer you get here for $2."
That includes Alexander Keith's, the new beer
they started selling exclusively in the area, as
well as a new Genesee. Although many of his


regular customers have tried the new beers
and liked them, since both are northern beers,
Grieger knows he'll have more success with
both beers when the snow birds return from
the north.
George and Tammy have owned Portside
Tavern for eight years, after buying it from
George's father when he retired. It's been in the
Grieger family for 20 years and next year, they
will celebrate its 50th anniversary.
They recently added a kitchen that will soon
allow them to serve snacks, hot dogs and pizza,
along with the beer, wine and liquor. Portside
Tavern has a full bar, something many people
don't know.
Other than offering a few food items, Grieger
plans to keep Portside Tavern just the way it is. Its
Old Florida, "shipwrecked" look is exactly what he
likes about it.
"We run a nice, honest, clean bar," said
Grieger, adding that he and Tammy spend 20
hours cleaning the tavern every week. "We're
here to stay. We're not going anywhere. But we
couldn't be here without knowing we can count
on our loyal staff."
The Griegers say the loyalty and hard work
of their night manager, Todd Kissinger, allows
them to go home to their three children in the
evening while knowing everything at the bar will

run smoothly.
So when you want a cold beer that won't break


your budget, stop in to Portside Tavern at 3636
Tamiami Trail, near Easy Street., in Port Charlotte.

What's new at Florida's


BY MARJIE LAMBERT
MCCLATCHY NEWSPAPERS
he yellow roller coaster is approach-
ing a steep hill, and it looks like a slow,
machinery-clanking climb almost straight
up is ahead. But whoosh! Suddenly the train
shoots forward like a rocket, hitting 60 mph. As
each car goes over the top, its riders lift off their
seats in unison for a glorious second or two, then
Cheetah Hunt, Busch Gardens' newest coaster,
plunges down the other side.
Sixty-five miles away, the revamped Star Tours
ride has opened at Disney's Hollywood Studios,
featuring the befuddled pilot C-3PO fleeing Impe-
rial Stormtroopers, with a rebel spy and the park's
guests along for a jarring ride.
More than the new attractions of 2011, what's
on the minds of many theme park fans is what's
coming up: Legoland is building its second U.S.
theme park in Winter Haven, 35 miles from Or-
lando, slated to open Oct. 15. Disney is well into
its Fantasyland expansion, castle tops peeking
over a construction wall, with Phase 1 scheduled
to open late next year. Universal Studios has an-
nounced a ride, based on the movie Despicable
Me, to open next year.
But for people planning visits to the parks this
summer, the season brings a few new thrills.
-Busch Gardens
Cheetah Hunt opened May 26, the first launch
coaster and the longest track (4,429 feet) of
any coaster at Busch/SeaWorld's 10 U.S. parks.
The coaster uses the force of repelling magnets
to launch uphill in three bursts of speed. The
first takes the train from zero to 38 mph in two
seconds. Then twice more, on two hills, the trains
rocket up to 60 mph in two seconds.
Cheetah Hunt, designed to simulate a cheetah
chasing prey across the park's Serengeti Plain, is
surprisingly smooth. Even with one inversion, the
queasiness factor is moderately low. Maximum
speed is 60 mph, making it the second fastest
coaster at the park after SheiKra, which briefly
hits 65 mph. The longest dive is 130 feet, far less
than SheiKra's 200-foot dive.
"Unlike SheiKra, which was built to be the
biggest, baddest, steepest coaster, Cheetah
Hunt didn't aim for that," said Jill Revelle, park
spokeswoman. "We wanted to create something
that was a little friendlier to young teens who had
outgrown Sand Serpent or Scorpion but weren't
quite ready for SheiKra."
Busch also wanted to duplicate the successful
combination of thrill ride and animal encounters
that its sister park, SeaWorld Orlando, accom-
plished with its Manta roller coaster, which winds
around a series of aquariums showcasing manta
rays and other sea life.
The roller coaster is paired with Cheetah Run,
habitat for 13 cheetahs new to the park .Their
large, grassy enclosure has glass walls that allow
the big cats and park visitors to check each other
out - and they do: Some of the cheetahs come
right up to the glass to get a closer look at the
humans. Several times a day, visitors can watch
the cats, fastest of all land mammals, sprint after
lures set up by their trainers.
The completion of Cheetah Hunt also allowed
for the reopening of Skyride, one of Busch
Gardens' oldest attractions. The Cheetah track
weaves around the towers and cables of the
gondola ride, which was closed while the coaster
was being built.
Also new to Busch Gardens in the last 12
months is Walkabout Way, which has an aviary
with kookaburras and other birds from Down
Under, and a separate habitat with about 40 kan-
garoos and wallabies. For $5, visitors can buy a
cup of feed pellets and hay for the critters, who sit
by the fence, lips extended like they're ready for a
big kiss, when they see the potential for a snack.
The park has a new show, Cirque Dreams
Jungle Fantasy, a combination musical and


acrobatics production, that replaced KaTonga at
the Moroccan Palace Theater. The show, in which
the jungle and its creatures come to life, features
contortionists, jugglers, acrobats, aerialists and
musicians. It runs until Labor Day.
There's also been a little fine-tuning of other
rides. The trains on Gwazi, a bone-jarring wooden
coaster, were traded out for new cars with
articulated axles that bend and make the ride
smoother. And Cheetah Chase, a wild-mouse
coaster, was renamed Sand Serpent so that
it wouldn't be confused with the new coaster
named after the big cat.
-Disney
Disney's biggest news this year is the opening
of the revamped Star Tours attraction, a raucous
and sometimes funny motion-simulator ride that
nominally features C-3PO, but the real stars are
the vivid Dolby 3-D and the synchronized move-
ment of the spaceship.
Star Tours: The Adventures Continue, which
opened May 20 at Hollywood Studios, uses the
same building and ride vehicle as the original
attraction, which opened more than 20 years ago,
but incorporates current technology as well as
an updated plot, which falls between Episode IIIl:
Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV: New Hope .
What starts out as a routine flight on a
Starspeeder 1000 turns into a wild chase after
Darth Vader and the Empire learn that a rebel spy
is on board. In a nice touch by Disney Imagineer-
ing and Lucasfilm, the plot has 11 mix-and-match
options, so a guest might meet Darth Vader and
Princess Leia and go to Tatooine and the under-
water world of Naboo on one ride, then run into
Stormtroopers and Yoda and see the jungles of
Kashyyyk and the Death Star the next. Whatever
you see through the window of the Starspeeder,
the motions of the ride are synchronized with that
sequence.
A word about motion:There's a lot. Imagine
the platform is balanced on a giant ball bearing.
Although it does not go from Point A to Point B, it
does jerk mightily up and down, side to side. Without
a seatbelt, you would fly - or fall - out of your seat.
Queasiness factor: moderate to moderately high.
The queue has fun details: A clueless baggage
inspector sees an X-ray of a suitcase full of guns
and wonders aloud why someone travels with so
many hair dryers. Rex, the droid pilot voiced by
Paul Reuben (Pee-Wee Herman) in the original
Star Tours, now lies on the scrap heap, labeled
"Defective. Return to factory."
Outside, kids too little to ride (height minimum
is 40 inches) might be loaned robes and light
sabers and invited to take part in the Jedi Training
Academy.
Character meet-and-greets have become
hugely popular at the Disney parks, which in
recent years have added more characters, more
designated meeting spots and more scheduled
appearances. Walt Disney World now has 60
locations throughout the parks where guests can
meet characters.
The most popular is Mickey, and he has a new
meet-and-greet spot in Magic Kingdom where
fans can find him all day - and sometimes Min-
nie, too. And for the first time, they can get Fast-
Pass tickets to come back at a specified time and
bypass the queue. The setting is Town Square
Theater, where Mickey is the star of a magic
show; Magician Mickey meets fans backstage.
Guests can also get a FastPass here to meet
the Disney princesses - Belle, Cinderella and
Aurora (from Sleeping Beauty) - who eventually
will get their own meet-and-greet spots in the
Fantasyland expansion.
Animal viewing gets a little more intense on
Wild Africa Trek, an extra-fee three-hour adven-
ture that is part walk, part truck ride through the
Animal Kingdom's Africa section. It is, in essence,
a private tour of Harambe Wildlife Reserve, with
no more than 12 guests per tour.


theme parks


Visitors hike through the forest, and ..
stand on the edge of embankments o"
high above a river inhabited by croco-
diles and hippos. They cross rickety .'
rope bridges that hang about 30 feet ..
over the animals. Participants are buck-
led into vests with safety harnesses
that are attached to an overhead cable
or other device to keep them from be-
coming a crocodile's lunch (the hippos
usually stick to a vegetarian diet).
Part Two of the trek is a ride in the
back of a truck through the "savanna,"
similar to the Kilimanjaro Safari, which is
included with admission. However, on the
Wild Africa Trek, the truck makes more stops
to see animals, and the guides have more time
to talk about specific ones.
-Seaworld Orlando
SeaWorld introduced its killer-whale show, One
Ocean, in April at a jazzed-up Shamu Stadium.
The message of the show, which features the
park's seven orcas, is that animals and humans
are part of one world, with one ocean, that is our
responsibility to protect. With whales as ambas-
sadors of the sea, the show is intended to tell
kids that they can make a difference, said Kelly
Flaherty Clark, director of animal training. It's a bit
heavy-handed, but the speeding, leaping, splash-
ing, kissing orcas are as captivating as ever.
Performing whales include Tilikum, who
returned to the show less than three months ago
after drowning its trainer at SeaWorld in February
2010. However, trainers - who used to surf on
top of the whales - have been barred from going
into the water with the orcas since the death.
The stadium has a colorful new backdrop
and video screens where cute caricatures of
sea creatures invite guests to text them, then
welcome them by name. After some guests
complained that they didn't get wet during the
show, even though they were sitting in the "splash
zone," fountains were installed around the edge of
the pool to accomplish what the slap of a whale's
tail might not.
-Gatorland
The Screamin' Gator Zip Line opened June 16
at Gatorland, a 110-acre park in Orlando with all
things gator (and crocodile) - breeding marsh,
gator wrestling show, gator encounters, train ride
and splash park.
The zip line, Gatorland's first, takes riders
over the animals. There are five sections, starting
with an introductory run at 15 mph, with each
sequence longer and faster than the last, ending
with dual zip lines where two guests race at
speeds that can top 30 mph.There's also a scary
swinging bridge that participants cross on foot.
On average, the riders are about 35 feet above
the gators.

Disney's biggest news this year is the
opening of the revamped Star Tours
attraction, a raucous and sometimes funny
motion-simulator ride that nominally
features C-3PO, but the real stars are the
vivid Dolby 3-D and the synchronized move-
ment of the spaceship.

Sarasota-based D15: Meaning through music


BY SHARE DERRICKSON
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The Sarasota-based band and a local fa-
vorite in the Port Charlotte area, D15, has
much to tell the world through its original
music. Band member Joe Craciun, who along
with twin brother John, and Kirk Shivell and Craig
Slaughterback, said they stress the important
things in life through song, as well as practicing
those things in their daily lives.
While young with each band member ranging
from 21 to 22, everyone in the band has a diverse
musical taste and artists that have influenced
them, all the way from Frank Zappa to Mozart. "It
really does vary a lot," Joe said, "and right now,
we are falling in love with the '80s band Tears for
Fears."
Joe and John were raised in a home full of cul-
ture with their mom being a classical dancer and
their father turned them on to folk music when
they were young. "We also love the blues and a
lot of the old school rock and roll," Joe said.
The two brothers joined up with Shivell and
Slaughterback in high school and have been
playing together for four years after the twins
spent a life in a nomadic family. "We have lived all


over the place," Joe said. "John and I have been
together since in the womb and we have lived in
Alaska, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and
Florida. We have changed schools many times
and lived in mansions, with family, and in the
ghettoes. It gave us a foundation to know what
was going to last and that is family - and our
band members are also our family."
"It gave us a great perspective and allowed
us to understand the responsibility we have with
music," he said. "It has given us the opportunity to
look into young people's minds and get some-
thing out there - for them to believe in them-
selves, music with good morals and not synthetic
like al lot of today's music. We want to get kids to
listen to real music again."
The band does shy away from controversial
issues as they can often be misconstrued.
"We want to inspire and explain without being
preachy," he said.
'We have a love song that is about issues that
come up in any relationship, about miscommuni-
cation, pain, and that we sometimes forget who
that person is. It is all about the presentation and
the presentation can be powerful."
The band has found favor at many venues,


including Corky's Rock and Roll Grill in Port
Charlotte where they recently won the club's
battle of the bands. It is their third first-place
battle win in a month.
"We are busy most weekends now. Things are
slowing down a little."
But, it may be a good thing as the band is
getting ready to release their first CD called Turn
the Safety Off
The title comes from the band's belief that
many great things have come from taking some
chances and daring to go outside the box.
"It will be released July 2, and then, we are
playing in downtown Sarasota on Monday, after
the fireworks."
"We are getting more serious about our music
and understand its power, especially with young
people. Rock and roll is a great vehicle for their
philosophy. "Rock is about peace, love, wisdom,
life, and living every moment. That is our mes-
sage."
Once available, you may purchase their CD
on CDBaby and iTunes or contact them through

Creating-Change#!/D15theband or online at

Banyan Theater opens season with a comedy


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Banyan Theater Company begins its 10th
anniversary season with "Becky's New
Car," a romantic comedy by Steven Dietz.
Sticking to the formula that has worked so well
since day one, Executive director and founder
Jerry Finn and his company will offer three
contemporary works with the potential to become
classics.
An important part of the formula for the area is
that Banyan productions are presented during the
summer, something that has spurred other area
theater companies to add to their own summer
offerings.


Playing from Thursday to July 17 in the Cook
Theatre at the FSU Center For the Performing
Arts in Sarasota, "Becky's New Car" is sort of a
mid-life crisis story. In her 50s, Becky, a wife and
mother, meets a millionaire who offers glamour
and adventure. Will she take the wheel of a
new car and drive off into a new life, leaving her
safe, if somewhat pedestrian world behind her?
Sounds like a classic Doris Day meets Rock
Hudson romp.
There will be playtalks following the evening
performances on July 7 and 14 and following the
matinees on Sunday and July 10.
The season continues with "Animals Out of Pa-
per" by Rajiv July 21 - Aug. 7 and "Kiss the Moon,


Kiss the Sun," by Norm Foster Aug. 11 - 28.
Tickets are $28.50 per person for a single
show, $52 for a two-show package and $70 for
the three-show season.
The FSU Center is located at 555 North
Tamiami Trail, Sarasota. Take exit 213 from
Interstate 75 and travel west on University. Cross
U.S. 41 and turn right into the parking lot that also
serves the Ringling Museum complex.
For information, call 941-358-5330.
