This year's sea turtle nesting
season appears to be defying a
decade-long decline.
Wildlife officials are hope-
ful but aren't willing to call
the strong numbers almost
double last year's nest num-
bers, to date a trend.
Mote Marine Laboratory an-
nounced that the first logger-
head sea turtle nests hatched
last week, two on Longboat


Key and one on Casey Key.
Mote, which oversees sea
turtle patrol volunteers and
nesting from Longboat Key
south to Venice reported
that some of the season's first
hatchlings were disoriented by
artificial lighting.
Researchers have long known
that the hatchlings are attracted
to the moon and ambient light
reflected on the Gulf and other
waters. Artificial lights shining

Loggerhead hatchlings, like this one, are starting to emerge from their
nests. The state is seeing a strong start to the sea turtle nesting season,
which lasts until October.

'LSVs' making island inroads


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
Kathy Cushing is on a mis-
sion to make Venice a golf-
car-friendly city.
More than a year ago she
planned and plotted to make
her battery-operated golf cart
street-legal. The conversion
cost more than she expected
- almost $4,000.
Now that she's got it, she
can't live without it. Cushing
travels Venice streets two to
three times a day, she says -
to the grocery store, doctor's
office, for work.
"The other day we went
downtown for ice cream and
all the people at the parlor
were looking at it saying they
have to get one."
Some buy "low-speed vehi-
cles" because they're "green."
The savings on gas and emis-
sions are obvious. But the real
benefit to LSVs, Cushing says,
is the number of large vehicles
they could replace, cutting
down on traffic jams and free-
ing up parking space, which
is at a premium in downtown
Venice during the season.
"What if all these big cars
could go away?" she said, "if
you had parking spaces on
the street designated for low-
speed vehicles?"
She even suggested the city
could save money leasing
LSVs for use in cleaning parks,
checking residential meters,
etc.
She'd like to see West Venice
Avenue, or a portion thereof,

designated for LSV parking
only.
LSVs are increasing in
popularity, but they're still a
unique sight in Venice. Some
estimate there are only a
dozen or so on the island.
It's only a matter of time
before the city will have to
accommodate their use, says
Affordable Golf Cars owner
Jason Fitchett, on U.S. 41 in
Nokomis.
And there's no better place
to start than on the island.
"Venice would be perfect
because it's a contained island
on all sides," he said. "Only
U.S. 41 has a speed limit up
to 45 mph, and then only in
certain sections."
LSVs can legally travel on


Serianni case moves


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

In a series of procedural
rulings, a judge has accepted
a magistrate's recommenda-
tion to allow a lawsuit filed by
a police officer against the city
of Venice to proceed.
Magistrate Judge Thomas
B. McCoun recommended
to Tampa Middle Court
Judge Virginia N. Hernandez
Covington that a motion to
dismiss the suit be denied.


Covington accepted the
recommendation last week,
paving the way for the case to
proceed.
City Attorney Bob Anderson
said the next step will be man-
datory mediation in August.
Officer Demitri N. Serianni
filed the suit in September
against former Police Chief
Julie Williams, former City
Manager Isaac Turner and the
city of Venice. Claims against
Turner and Williams have
since been dismissed.


roads with speed limits of
35 mph or less.
Fitchett expects to sell 250
tricked-out "golf cars" in his
first year of operation.
"Three or four years ago
there was some (apprehen-
sion)" over sharing the road
with street legal golf carts,
Fitchett said. "Now it sounds
like some are taking a differ-
ent approach (after) seeing
how some other cities like Sun
City have boomed, and are
making policies that accom-
modate LSVs."
City Council Member Jea-
nette Gates, who has owned
an LSV for years, agrees the
city needs to plan for a future

Serianni claims the city
retaliated against him after he
testified in 2009 on behalf of
another officer in a wrongful
termination case, and in 2010
for outing a lieutenant who
visited his bait shop while on
duty. The lieutenant had given
Serianni a poor evaluation.

Lights out for turtles, please


By WILMA KATZ
SPECIAL TO THE SUN PAPERS
Lights left on overnight and
visible from the beach pose a
threat to nesting sea turtles, and
now that nests are hatching, to
the little loggerhead turtles as
well.
Sea turtles use light as a sea-
finding cue. In natural situa-
tions, the sky over the open
water is the lighter horizon and
the hatchlings scramble directly
to the Gulf. Our lights, such as
porch or lanai lights, though,
if unshielded, often lead sea
turtles in the wrong direction.
The new moon occurred on
July 1, making Friday night and
the several nights before and af-
ter especially dark. At this time,
by comparison, even a low-watt
light that is unshielded would
appear bright and might lead
sea turtle hatchlings away from
the water and to their death.
Coastal Wildlife Club turtle
patrol volunteers request that
residents and visitors help them
to make the beaches safer for sea
turtles by checking their lights
nightly and to make sure none
has been accidentally left on.
Effective sea turtle conserva-
tion is a team effort. Turtle pa-
trol volunteers work very hard
completing daily nesting beach
tasks, and we readily share our
experience and our enthusiasm
with others. But then we go
home.
Most of the time, and espe-
cially at night, beach residents
and visitors are the protectors of
the turtles and the nests.
One angler can explain to
another why fishing lamps are
a threat.
Children staying at a resort
can help remind guests to turn
off their doorway lights and to
draw their draperies.
A child can ask a neighbor not
to let a dog run on the beach.
Condominium managers
should enforce their associa-
tions' fireworks prohibitions at
the direction of boards.
We Coastal Wildlife Club "tur-
tiers" are thanked all the time.

State calls for blue crab trap hiatus


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER

Blue crabs will be
off-limits to commer-
cial and recreational
trappers from July 10
to 19.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission closed
crab trapping in South
Florida waters around
the state from Broward
County on the East
Coast to Pasco County
on the West Coast for
10 days.
FWC has hired con-
tractors to clear out
abandoned and lost
traps from water bod-
ies during that period.
However, harvest-
ing blue crabs with dip
nets and fold-up traps
will be permitted dur-
ing the closure.
All commercial-style
traps must be removed
from waters before the
July 10 closure or they
will be deemed lost
or abandoned, said
FWC spokesman Aaron
Poder. Traps tied to
docks or other private
properties will not
be considered lost or
abandoned.
The FWC considers
abandoned blue crab
traps a problem since
they can continue to
trap crabs and fish.
Besides being
"unsightly," Poder
said abandoned traps


BLUE CRAB POPULATIONS
Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institute noted a decline in blue
crab populations in 2004, but that may change.
Severe droughts in recent years affected blue crabs, but with the
state seeing a return of more normal rainfalls, blue crab populations
may be bouncing back, said Ryan Gandy, an FWC crustacean research
biologist.
At various stages of their development, blue crabs need the salinity
of offshore waters and at other times, the freshwater flushes of riverian
systems. Blue crabs mate in the upper and fresher waters of estuaries,
but females spawn in higher salinities off shore. After an initial larval
stage, juvenile blue crabs ride tidal currents into estuaries where they
mature. Droughts limit suitable nursery habitats, Gandy said.
For more on the life cycle of blue crabs, go to www.myfwc.com/
research/saltwater/crustaceans-marine-arthropods/blue-crabs/life-cycle.


SUN PHOTO BY STEVE REILLY, reilly@sun-herald.com
Patsy Smith, owner of Patsy's Crabs in Placida's Fishery complex, holds up a live blue crab.
Between July 10 to July 19, the state issued a ban on blue crab harvesting to remove abandoned
traps from estuaries and other water bodies.


can potentially dam-
age sensitive habitats
and are navigational
hazards.
Such closures are pe-
riodic to allow for crab
trap clean-ups.
FWC established a
rolling schedule of
closures throughout
the state, Poder said.
The state's Blue Crab
Advisory Board helped


develop the closure
schedule.
"Well, if they're going
to do it, it's the best
time of the year," said
Patsy Smith, owner of
Patsy's Crabs at the
Fishery complex in
Placida. Smith sells
fresh Florida seafood,
including blue crabs,
mullet and shrimp, and
live bait.


"More than half of
my sales are to Mary-
land people who
love crabs," she said.
"They're mostly gone.
After the July Fourth
weekend, it's like
someone turns off a
light switch."
Betty Staugler, the
University of Florida
Extension Service's Sea
Grant agent in Charlotte


County, will be partici-
pating in the crab trap
cleanup in the Peace
River and will bringing
with her a bit of in-
novative technology to
help find abandoned
traps on the bottom
of the river. Thanks to
the Virginia Institute of
Marine Science, she will
be employing a scan-
ning unit that can spot
submerged crab traps.
In the Chesapeake
Bay, the device located
28,000 submerged
traps in four years.
"It's fairly unique in
Florida," Staugler said.
Commercial crab-
bing, like Florida's
commercial fishing
industry in general, is
shrinking.
In a 2011 report,
"Florida's Commercial
Blue Crab Fishery,"
Michelle Sempsrott de-
scribed the commercial
blue crab fishery as an


$8 million-a-year-plus
industry. The industry
has shrunk since the
1990s with the estab-
lishment of restrictions
under the state's Blue
Crab Effort Manage-
ment Program in 2007.
The state also estab-
lished a moratorium on
issuing new commercial
crabbing licenses. The
number of commer-
cial crabbers those
who have blue crab
endorsements as part
of their commercial
fishing licenses has
dwindled from 2,200 in
2007 to 1,000. Crabbers
can sell their blue crab
endorsements.
According to Semp-
srott, 11.8 million pounds
of blue crabs were
harvested annually from
Florida waters before
2007. That number is now
down to an average of
7 million pounds a year.

Loggerhead turtle nests that were identified and marked on Casey Key at South Nokomis Beach
close to the sea grapes.


A message in turtle nesting?


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Could the loggerhead
turtles that come to
nest on our beaches be
providing clues to the
hurricane season this
year?
A turtle spotter in
this area said females
in this endangered spe-
cies are making their
nests farther from the
shore than usual. More
nests are being found
this season, but instead
of being located a few
yards from the Gulf
waterline they are be-


ing found near the sea
grapes and dunes.
Reportedly, the last
time a similar nesting
characteristic oc-
curred was seven years
ago, when Hurricane
Charley pounded Punta
Gorda and Port Char-
lotte, causing devasta-
tion to the homes and
businesses throughout
that area.
Mote Marine Labora-
tory sea turtle biolo-
gists agreed that this
year's numbers are
strong so far, and they
hope those numbers
will continue, said


spokeswoman Hayley
Rutger. This year 167
nests have been found
on Casey Key through
May, compared to 115
last year.
Rutger said that so
far this year Mote turtle
staff has not noted
that turtles are nesting
higher up the beach
than usual.
"We also do not know
of any connection be-
tween upcoming hurri-
canes and the positions
of nests on our shores,"
she said.

Thelma J. Jinks
Thelma Jane Jinks went
home to her Lord Mon-
day, July 4, 2011. Jane
was just 16
days shy of
4j her 102nd
birthday,
ending a
remarkable
/ life.
She was
born in
Decatur, Ill1., July 20,
1909. After graduating
from Stephen Decatur
High School, she went
to work as a bookkeeper
for Decatur Dry Goods,
becoming the head
bookkeeper. In 1938 she

WEDNESDAY, JULY 6, 2011


they moved to Dayton,
Ohio, where she worked
as a court stenographer
while her husband was
at Wright Patterson Air
Force Base. At the end
of World War II, they
returned to Connersville,
Ind., opening a jewelry
store. In 1953, after the
death of her husband,
she returned to Decatur,
Ill. She then started with
a new company, Muni
Quip Corporation, as
a cost accountant. She
rose from that to become
vice president of the
corporation, an almost
unheard of position for
a woman in the '50s. She
continued to work until
the age of 75 and was a
consultant for the com-
pany until age 77.
Jane made Venice, Fla.,
her permanent home in
1971. She was a de-
vout member of Venice
Presbyterian Church.
She found great comfort
in her faith. Jane never
just talked the talk; she

days of her life. There was
never a time she would
be too busy to help a
friend or lend a hand to
those less fortunate.
In 2004 Jane relo-
cated to Fort Myers to be
closer to her daughter
and granddaughter. She
enjoyed her time there,
never missing bingo
night or chocolate sun-
dae night.
She was preceded in
death by her husband,
Merlin S. Jinks; her twin
sister, Velma (Cass) Run-
yan; grandson David Eric;
son-in-law Robert L. Ste-
phens; and great-great-
granddaughter Catie.
She leaves, to cherish
her memory, daughter
Barbara (Robert) Ste-
phens; granddaughter
Gerri-Anne (Jim) Duke;
grandson Robert A.
(Betty) Stephens; and
great-grandchildren Rob-
ert, Joseph, Ben, Melissa,
Jacob and Aila.
The family will be for-
ever grateful to caretakers
Connie Denny and Nancy
Jackson, along with the
staff of Page Rehabilita-
tion. Your care, love and
respect will always be
remembered.
Jane, always a lady, a
remarkable woman, you
have earned your rest.

Officials: Metal theft, drugs linked


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

When Sarasota County
Commissioner Christine
Robinson went on a
recent ride-along with a
deputy in South County,
an alleged drug dealer
boldly rode up to them
when they were standing
in a driveway, looking at
copper shavings on the
ground.
In that moment,
Robinson observed a
link between two of the
state's most pressing
law-enforcement chal-
lenges: the theft and sale
of certain metals leading
to the purchase and
the sale of prescription
drugs.
"They're much more
brazen because it's
much harder to arrest
for pills (than illegal
drugs)," Robinson said
of the drug dealers,
"because if they have
got a legitimate pre-
scription, they're fine.
A lot of the metal theft
that is going on now
is being used to feed
the pill habits. They're
stripping (copper) out
of even our county
streetlights."
Officials report ap-
proximately $115,000
worth of damage to
county property as a
result of copper-wire
thefts over the past five
years. The Sarasota
County Sheriff's Of-
fice sees the problem
more broadly, saying it
involves precious met-
als as well. It identified
more than $7 million
in jewelry plus metal
such as copper, valued
at several hundred
thousand dollars sto-
len in unincorporated
Sarasota County during
the past three years.
A report by the sher-
iff's office states that
by their actions, some
pawnbrokers, second-
hand dealers and sec-
ondary metals recyclers
play a role in creating
a demand market and
in part are facilitating
the increasing numbers
of thefts and burglar-
ies in the county and


23 I W. Venice Ave. Downtown Venice


statewide. It also said the
office's investigations in-
dicate a link between the
theft of precious metals
and illegal prescription
drug use.
When Deputy Dan
Kohn showed Robinson a
drug dealer's house, she
saw copper wire shavings
all over the ground.
"It was absolutely
incredible to see the link
between the two," she
said. "This is an epidemic
statewide."
Thieves are stealing
air-conditioning units,
manhole covers, steel
grates and metal cem-
etery markers, among
other items.


"They are taking them
out of anything they can
find and trying to go to
the places that buy metal
and get money so they
can feed their habits,"
Robinson said.
Ironically, at about $4
per pound for copper, in
some cases "what they
are stealing is not worth
nearly as much as what
they are usually stealing
it out of, like when you
talk about a commercial
air-conditioning unit,"
she said.
Kohn took Robinson
by a couple of places
where people were sit-
ting around in a circle
shaving the casings off


of wire to get the copper
out of the middle, she
said, adding that Kohn
did his job, asking where
they got it from.
The county has a cou-
ple of ordinances that
regulate secondhand
dealers and secondary
metals recyclers. They
are similar to a 1993
state law but include
some ambiguous lan-
guage that inhibits both
arrests and prosecu-
tions. The sheriff's office
is rewriting the ordi-
nances and will present
them to the county com-
mission in late summer.

Visitor bureau creates sports commission


STAFF REPORT

The Sarasota Conven-
tion & Visitors Bureau has
announced the formation
of the Sarasota County
Sports Commission.
The commission will
provide the SCVB board
of directors and Jason
Puckett, director of
sports, "with direction
and guidance on sports
marketing and sports
product development,"
according to information
provided by the SCVB.
"The SCSC will provide
oversight and recom-


mendations on annual
sports marketing spon-
sorships and will provide
feedback and direction
on potential sports
tourism initiatives," the
bureau stated. "The com-
mission will be a con-
tinuation of the SCVB's
sports tourism efforts
and programs over the
past six years."
Sports tourism has
been an important
economic driver for the
county. In fiscal year
2009-10, the SCVB spon-
sored 33 events, generat-
ing more than $23 million


in economic impact and
filling nearly 27,000 hotel
rooms.
"By the end of fiscal
year 2010-11, we will
have sponsored and sup-
ported over 50 sporting
events in the community.
This helps to support
our local businesses and,
with the county allocat-
ing bed-tax funding for
two major athletic facili-
ties, Ed Smith Stadium
and Nathan Benderson
Park, we felt this was a
natural progression that
will help us continue
to be competitive with


other destinations," said
Virginia Haley, president
of the SCVB.
The sports commis-
sion's mission will be to
publicize Sarasota County
as the "must-experience
sports destination on
Florida's Gulf Coast
through quality events
and initiatives," according
to the SCVB.
Members of the SCSC
will include Puckett and
a panel of advisory mem-
bers. The SCVB board
of directors is accepting
applications to serve on
the commission. Those


interested in receiving
an application can email
Puckett at jpuckett@
sarasotafl.org.
Members are to be
appointed by the chair of
the SCVB board annually
to a one-year term and
may serve for a maximum
of three consecutive
terms. The SCSC will not
exceed 11 members and
will have a minimum of
seven members, with four
positions being appoint-
ed from the following
organizations: Sara-
sota County government,
Sarasota County Parks &


Recreation, the Sarasota
Area Sports Authority and
the Sarasota/Manatee
Hotel Sales Committee.
Candidates must meet
one of the following
criteria: SCVB partner,
Sarasota County busi-
ness or association, or
Sarasota County resident.
Preference will be given
to people with sports
organizational experi-
ence, to members from
the different regions of
Sarasota County, and to
those who represent key
segments of the county's
sports assets.


TURTLE
FROM PAGE 1

on beaches can cause the hatch-
lings to head in the wrong direc-
tion, where they can end up dead
in the street.
"Our lights threaten sea tur-
tles," said Wilma Katz.
She and Zoe Bass are the state
primary permit holders on Mana-
sota Key and oversee sea turtle pa-
trols for the Coastal Wildlife Club.
Nesting season began in May
and appears to be off to a good
start this year.
On Manasota Key, as of June 24,
the Coastal Wildlife Club reported
1,212 loggerhead nests, four green
turtle nests and a total of 1,737
false crawls, signs that a female
sea turtle abandoned an attempt
to lay her eggs.


During the same period in
2010, the club reported 632 log-
gerhead nests, three green turtle
nests, one Kemp's ridley nest and
a total of 1,061 false crawls.
Reports from other area Gulf
beaches include: 159 loggerhead
nests and 153 false crawls on
Gasparilla Island; and 45 logger-
head nests and 107 false crawls
on Little Gasparilla Island.
As of June 18, Brenda Bossman,
the primary state permit holder
on Knight and Don Pedro islands,
reported 81 loggerhead nests and
134 false crawls.
As of June 25, from Longboat
Key to Venice, 679 loggerhead
nests were reported to Mote,
of which 283 are on Casey Key.
Another three nests are identified
as green sea turtle nests. Mote also
reported a total of 750 false crawls.
In 2010 during the same period,
Mote reported 472 loggerhead


nests, two green turtle nests and
596 false crawls.
Generally, female loggerheads
nest every two years and will lay
an average of five nests during a
season with an average of 115 eggs
per nest, according to researchers.
About 60 percent of the eggs will
hatch. One in 1,000 to 5,000 will
survive to adulthood.
Researchers are cautiously opti-
mistic about the start of this year's
sea turtle nesting season, said Anne
Meylan, a research administrator
with the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's Fish
and Wildlife Research Institute.
Statewide reports suggest the
numbers for nesting are up,
Meylan said. However, it is still
too early to predict whether the
season will sustain itself. From
1989 to 1998, the state saw a 25.22
percent seasonal decline in log-
gerhead sea turtle nesting.


HOW TO HELP NESTING SEA TURTLES
AND HATCHLINGS
Now that sea turtle nesting season has begun, the Coastal Wildlife Club
and Mote Marine Laboratory offer these tips:
Disconnect, shield or turn off outdoor lights visible on the beach from
May through October.
Close drapes after dark and put beach furniture far back from the water.
Move or adjust interior lights that can be seen from the beach.
Do not use flashlights, tiki torches, fishing lanterns, flash photography
or fireworks on Gulf beaches at night.
Enjoy building sand castles, digging holes or other play on the Gulf
beaches, but refill any holes before you leave. Sea turtle hatchlings and
shorebird chicks can be trapped in holes.
Remove canopies, chairs, toys and other obstructions from beaches at night.
Do mini-cleanups of trash on the beach that might hinder nesting
turtles or hatchlings. Food scraps left on the beaches also can attract
raccoons and other predators.
Do not allow pets on the beach. Unleashed pets can frighten turtles, dig
up nests or harm hatchlings or shorebird chicks.
Ifa nesting sea turtle or hatchlings are spotted, remain quiet, at a
distance and in the dark.
Sarasota County and the city of Venice have implemented ordinances to
ensure sea turtles are protected.

which includes officers
employed by the city, in
part he said, to attempt
to curtail the alleged
overuse of Internal Af-
fairs investigations.
In May 2009 Seri-
anni was the target of
an IA investigation and
relieved of his firearm. In
June 2009 he was asked


to resign, according to
court documents, but he
declined.
Serianni said he
endured unfounded
IA investigations, false
accusations of mis-
conduct, a poor evalu-
ation, posting of his
evaluation in a meeting
room for others to see,
removal of his train-
ing responsibilities and
transfer of duties to
traffic enforcement and
a change in hours as a


result of his testimony
and claims he made.
After an incident in
which he was docked 40
hours of pay, Serianni re-
quested a hearing before
an arbitrator. In Decem-
ber 2009 all charges were
dropped.
Serianni claims he
was subject to addition-
al written and verbal
reprimands and was
harassed by numerous
officers, causing him
to obtain treatment for


work-related stress and
anxiety.
The complaints of


harassment were inves-
tigated by an outside
consultant who found


they had no merit.

Studio anniversary marks turnaround


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

In 2004, Michael
Mueller acquired Gotta
Dance Studios, 303 South
Tamiami Trail, Nokomis,
in the Four Bays Center -
from his father, who pur-
chased it in 2001 as it was
going to close and nursed
it through the three-year
U.S. 41 road project.
During his recent sev-
enth anniversary celebra-
tion, Mueller attributed
his success to teamwork
by Marie Ann Nigh on
the administrative side
and Sue Adams, a dance
instructor. Initially, a few
students living in Venice
and Englewood trans-
ferred from his father's
Sarasota Studio. By creat-
ing social events, activi-
ties and parties, and pro-
viding light snacks, sodas


and coffee, the studio
has caused attendance to
grow substantially.
The dance studio is
much larger than it ap-
pears from the outside,
encompassing four units
to provide a large club-
style atmosphere with
no pillars or obstacles.
A 2,800-square-foot oak
floating floor on foam
padding eases the strain
on dancers' legs and
state-of-the-art com-
puterized LED lighting
avoids dazzling them as
they move around.
"I want to help people
who need assistance to
learn and confidence to
dance with others," said
Mueller, who competed
professionally in his
30s to become the U.S.
Rising Star Champion in
Standard Grade.
Years later, he is coach-


ing championship cou-
ples from Boston, New
York and Ohio who travel
to Nokomis. During
season many snowbirds
participate in events.
Youngsters starting at
12 can be competing at
the national level within
a couple of years. Gotta
Dance has no upper limit
on age, with one lady of
92 regularly attending.
Kids, beginners and com-
petitive partners all enjoy
dancing on the spacious
floor at social events held
three evenings a week.
Private lessons are by
appointment and range
from 30 to 60 minutes.
Group classes take place
in the evening and Satur-
day mornings.
Mueller and his team
teach the whole range
of dances including the
standards: waltz, foxtrot,

visits to the studio to take lessons to participate in national
competitions.


tango and quickstep. A
selection of men's and la-
dies' dance shoes is avail-
able from a club member
instructor who has a
display in the studio.


FromYoungstown, Ohio,
the Mueller family moved
to Florida's east coast, then
to the St. Petersburg area,
where Mueller started
working in the studio


managed by his dad.
When his father took over
ownership of a Sarasota
studio, Mueller relocated
to this county and assisted
in opening three stu-
dios. When the economy
tanked they downsized,
with his father keeping
Sara Dance in Sarasota
and Mueller operating
Gotta Dance in Nokomis.
Dance coaching has
always and continues to
involve all the Mueller
family, with his dad in
Sarasota where his sister
teaches and his brother
working out of studio in
Georgia.
"The dance floor is an
equalizer social activity
for everyone, demon-
strated by the retirees,
professionals and work-
ing people who enjoy our
studio," said Mueller.

Bad reputation online? He can fix it

If your business or per-

lived in Nokomis since
moving to Florida in 1980.
He has a master's degree
in accounting, is a certi-
fied fraud examiner and
also works as a partner in
a CPA firm.
'After the fact there are
several things that we look
at," McFarland said of rep-
utations damaged online.
"One of the big problems
is the people who like you,


they don't post anything.
It's the people who are
mad, they're the ones who
post something about you.
"I think it was Winston
Churchill who said, A lie is
halfway around the world
before the truth gets its
pants on.'"
McFarland said he writes
Web "spiders" that go out
and search the Internet to
find known and unknown


problems. He said he uses
programs to watch search
engines for anyone who
is looking for a particular
person or company.
"That's just one of many
things that I do," McFar-
land said. "I do a lot of
computer and Internet
forensics work for criminal
activity. Online-reputation
management is one of the
features.
"I have been an expert
witness for computer- or
accounting-related items,
things that have been
changed on a computer;
I can backtrack and see
what the original stuff was
and who changed it."
McFarland has been a
witness or consultant on
cases ranging from fraud
and identity theft to human
trafficking and interna-
tional drug organizations.
He has worked on Internet
profiling and stalking, virus
and Trojan software issues.
"I have always been


interested in comput-
ers," McFarland said. "I
was self-taught on that. I
have become a recognized
expert in the industry from
contributing to different
things."
McFarland said the
Internet was not intended
for personal attacks, but
unfortunately has become
a place where safety must
be a priority.
"This Internet environ-
ment is worse than ever
as far as that," McFarland
said. "You can really get
damaged in a heartbeat.
You can spend years de-
veloping a brand presence
that in today's world can
be destroyed overnight. So
it's not a good situation."
McFarland said some-
times what he finds is
libelous, which compels
him to get the authori-
ties and attorneys in-
volved. It becomes more
difficult and expensive,
he said, to track people


who post anonymously.
McFarland quoted a
colleague who also does
reputation management:
He said, "'Your reputation
is not what you have built
within your local commu-
nity. It's what Google says
it is.' And that's the reality
of it out there."
McFarland said if he is
able to get a webmaster to
delete reputation-damag-
ing comments, his clients
will know that the prob-
lem has been addressed.
"Sometimes they are
uncooperative, so we try
to get other, happy cus-
tomers of that company
to go to the site," he said.
"Sometimes it's knowing
how to use the Internet.
So if you can get happy
customers to push the
negative comments to the
second page, most people
will never read them."

Bus stop possible at day spa


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

SCAT is looking into
establishing a bus stop
at the Warm Mineral
Springs Day Spa in North
Port.
Sarasota County Area
Transit Senior Planner
Sarah Blanchard told
Sarasota County com-
missioners Wednesday
that SCAT included a
(currently unfunded)
project in its 2012-21
transit development
plan for a Warm Mineral
Springs neighborhood
bus route. Commission-
ers approved the plan
Wednesday.
"Even then, it's a long
way up into Warm Mineral
Springs for ... (low) rider-
ship," Blanchard said.


IF YOU GO
SCAT'S public hearing regarding
fare increases is planned for
September. Three community
meetings also are scheduled.
Two will be in South County:
4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Aug. 3 at the
Venice Train Depot, 303 E. Venice
Ave.; and 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Aug. 9
at the North Port Library, 13800
S. Tamiami Trail.

SCAT also will explore
options for a partnership
with the manager of the
publicly owned day spa
to offer shuttle service,
transferring people from
U.S. 41 about one mile to
the Springs at 12200 San
Servando Ave., perhaps
via electric vehicles.
"If it brought enough
customers, the Springs
itself could actually send


vehicles down to get
folks," said Nora Patter-
son, commission chair.
Nothing is definite.
Gene Vaccaro, day spa
general manager, said no
one has ever told him of
the need for a bus stop
there, but he certainly
would be supportive of
the idea.
"Sales are way up over
two years ago, so people
are getting to us," he
said. "I'd love to talk to
SCAT about a shuttle."
While a bus stop at the
day spa is not imminent,
the intersection of U.S.
41 and Ortiz Boulevard
- the Warm Mineral
Springs gateway, where
the Route 9 bus stops
- is one of 13 bus stops
in the North Port area
where new bus shelters


are planned.
Meanwhile, county
commissioners on
Wednesday approved the
advertising of a public
hearing regarding the
increase of the standard
SCAT bus fare (from
75 cents to $1.25) and
other fare increases. The
price of a 30-day pass
would go up from $40 to
$55. Seven-day passes
would increase from
$15 to $20. The feder-
ally required half fare,
for seniors, people with
disabilities and those on
Medicare, would go up
from 35 cents to 60 cents.
Day passes (unlimited
rides) would go from $3
to $5. Paratransit rides
would go up from $1.25
to $2.50.
Thirty-day half fares


would increase from $20
to $27. Student 30-day
passes, currently avail-
able in the summer only,
soon will be available
year-round, for $35 for
30 days.
Regarding the fare in-
creases, Blanchard said,
"This is to balance the
need in the community
for having some fare op-
tions that don't increase
so quickly beyond the
rider's ability to pay for
the service."
Fares were last in-
creased in October 2007.
New fares would be ef-
fective Oct. 1 of this year.
Another proposed
increase is for the Liberty
pass, which is used by
eligible paratransit rid-
ers, who also may use
standard SCAT buses.


That monthly card would
increase from $4 to $15.
One reason for the in-
crease is fraud.
"What we see is ...
those cards are sold on
the street; they're used
for a variety of things that
are not associated with
anybody really needing to
use transit," SCAT Gen-
eral Manager Anthony
Beckford said. "We want
to put a stop to that."
Commissioner Jon
Thaxton said by rais-
ing that rate, the county
would be "penalizing the
most needy by attempt-
ing to squash the most
greedy."
He preferred stepping
up enforcement of anti-
fraud measures.

Next county hurdle: health-care reform


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

During the recession,
Sarasota County hu-
man services organiza-
tions have seen a sharp
increase in demand for
assistance from individu-
als and families. For ex-
ample, United Way 2-1-1
reports a 46 percent
increase in referrals given
for services over the past
four years. Many of these
cases are quite complex.
At the same time, these
agencies have had fewer
resources to meet the
need. Some critical ser-
vices are no longer avail-
able, or are in jeopardy.
That was the primary
message that represen-
tatives of the Commu-
nity Alliance of Sara-
sota County delivered to
county commissioners
Tuesday in their annual,
data-driven presenta-
tion. The alliance, a


consortium of 60 human
and community service
providers, funders, gov-
ernment agencies and
community members,
meets monthly to talk
about emerging issues.
The recession lingers,
and these organizations
are bracing for bad news
yet again, this time from
the impact of federal
health-care reform.
"It's going to start to
affect our community as
we're starting to see, as
our hospitals are start-
ing to see," said alliance
chair Sherri Reynolds
of the Sarasota County
School District. "We're
trying to get a handle on
it, because there is so
much rhetoric. It be-
comes political agendas
versus what is actually
going to affect the citi-
zens of our county."
Alliance members also
are working to increase
their legislative advocacy


so that agencies that re-
ceive direct funding from
the state continue to get
that money.
In other business
Tuesday, county
commissioners:
Approved the alloca-
tion of $30,000 to the
North Port City Commis-
sion to help fund a con-
tract for a facilitator to
revise the city's economic
development strategic
plan. The current plan
cost about $50,000 when
it was developed four
years ago.
"Life has changed for
us all, dramatically, since
2007, and I think that
this is an opportunity
for us to partner again
with North Port, to help
them get to where they
want to be," said County
Commissioner Christine
Robinson, who pro-
posed the allocation. The
funds will come from
the county Economic


Development Incentive
Fund, which has ap-
proximately $4.3 million
and is typically used to
fund businesses that
want to move to, start
up or expand in Sarasota
County. Commissioners
gave North Port $100,000
about a year ago to seed
its revolving loan guaran-
tee fund. The EDIF was
created after the county
benefited from the sale
of vacated North Port lots
during the last decade.

SUN NEWSPAPERS


OUR VIEW



Lewis moves to restore accountability


After just a few weeks on the
job, interim Sarasota County
Administrator Terry Lewis is
already leaving his imprint on county
government.
Late last month, Lewis announced
he had eliminated the position held
by a longtime, high-ranking staff
member whose actions in the se-
lection of a contractor to oversee
renovations of Ed Smith Stadium
two years ago prompted charges of
favoritism and insider dealing from a
group that uncovered the question-
able connection.
Lewis said the action had nothing to
do with the procurement scandal that
eventually led to County Administra-
tor Jim Ley's departure.
"We're moving the organization in
a different direction and his current
duties can and will be absorbed by
other staff," Lewis wrote in an email to
county commissioners.
But it had all the earmarks of the


Lewis style, witnessed during his
months as interim city administrator
in North Port decisive action on
personnel matters while maintaining
a neutral public face.
If nothing else, it sends a mes-
sage to the community and the staff.
In North Port, Lewis' willingness to
confront long-running issues and take
decisive action brought him respect
and helped restore confidence in
the organization. We'll also note the
contrast to Ley, who merely shifted
the employee's responsibilities when
questionable ethical actions came to
light.
It's a fresh leadership style that
is badly needed right now. Lewis is
finding his balance right away and
we think he is headed in the right
direction.
Lewis told us he had three primary
goals in the next six months: Stop
the bleeding; fix outstanding prob-
lems; and set up procedures to make


sure they won't happen again. The
tourniquet is working, and he's well
on his way with the other two.
For the long term, Lewis said he
was considering a recommendation
for an "inspector general," someone
inside the organization with powers to
investigate allegations of unethical or
fraudulent behavior. County Comp-
troller Karen Rushing, whose office
already has auditors investigating pro-
curement matters, is also considering
such as position.
The idea makes sense, although
the need should become clearer after
Rushing's investigation is completed.
An in-house compliance officer might
be more appropriate, Lewis said.
"We had a lot of rules in place,"
he said, "they just weren't being
followed."
Another improvement he'd like to
see as soon as possible is an easy-to-
find spot on the county website where
anyone would be able to review all


billing and procurement documents.
This type of transparency project is
an idea championed by North Port's
new City Manager Jonathan Lewis,
who helped launch a similar system in
Palm Bay.
"It's not something we want to wait
six months to do, but we do want to
make sure it's done right," Terry Lewis
said.
And then there's the glaring need for
a written code of ethics covering pro-
curement practices. Rushing already
has one, and it needs to be extended
to cover all county procurement. A
recent Sun papers story said the code
would include a zero-tolerance policy.
Any questionable activity would be
reported to the clerk's auditors. A
fraud prevention hotline would be set
up. Good.
All these steps should help restore
confidence that Sarasota County will
work through this crisis. It has to, and
quickly.


Here is The Sun


ou might have seen
some promotions in
our paper asking you to
be on the lookout for a new
product called "The Sun"
which debuts today. Some of
you might have been thinking,
"I thought there was already a
Sun in the marketplace." That
is true one that is called the
Gondolier Sun and has been
the paper of Venice for more
than 60 years.
The new Sun will be a
weekly free paper that will be
available from South Ven-
ice to Stickney Point Road
for starters and eventually
will be working its way into
Sarasota proper, bringing
you happenings, news and
information that covers the
Gulf Coast. The Gondolier
Sun will be the same product
you have been receiving for
all these years.
Obviously, The Sun is a by-
product of the Gondolier Sun
with significant differences. It
will come out on Wednesday
only; it will be totally free; it
will be distributed in racks
spread throughout the service
area; and, most of all, it will
concentrate on all aspects of
Gulf Coast living. For news
about city council, the county
commission, the police de-
partment, other hard news
and local sports, you will still
want to read the Gondolier
Sun.
We have asked Brooky
Brown to be the editor of this
new product and I do not
think we could have made


a better choice. Brooky has
been a writer for the Gon-
dolier Sun for many years,
handling special projects
and Police Beat, among other
duties. She's a former editor
here and with Gannett. Bob
Mudge is the editor of the
Venice Gondolier Sun and will
remain as such.
For people who are inter-
ested in buying ad space, that
option too will be available
as a plus and a separate buy
to the Gondolier Sun. Your ad
reps will have more infor-
mation on this. Believe me,
the rates are really good and
you will definitely want to
increase your ad budget to
take advantage of this new
opportunity to reach your
audience.
Years ago the Gondolier
Sun had a sister paper called
the Sarasota Sun, which was
a pretty successful prod-
uct as Sarasota businesses
wanted to reach the Venice
market and Venice busi-
nesses wanted to reach the
Sarasota market. The Sun is
an extension of that thought
process.
We all know we are in one
county and what affects one
community affects all in
Sarasota County, so this is a
product that will fill in nicely
in serving the two communi-
ties, Venice and Sarasota, and
all in between.
I hope when you are out
and about you will take a few
moments to pick one up and
give it a look-see. We here at
the paper are most interested
in your thoughts and reaction
to it, especially Brooky. She has
organized and put together a
very nice product and is truly
excited about it, as is the whole
office.
There are growing pains with
everything, so let us know your
thoughts.

Lang Capasso is publisher of
the Gondolier Sun.

Process. The piece by the fire
chief in the local newspaper
was entirely unnecessary. The
column was definitely grand-
standing. It's certainly not the
way to conduct business. His
budget requirements should
be handled through the proper
chain of command. Not doing
it also shows a pure lack of
understanding as to how the
management process works.
Working through the press is on
the verge of insubordination.
The man needs to take a course
in Management 101. A couple
of years ago the fire chief
reminded city council what its
job was. Do you believe such
arrogance? He must realize that
all city departments are equal
and all should be doing their
fair share to tighten their belts
- again, through the normal
management process.
One reason. The troop
pull-out in Afghanistan is only
because the political leaders
are afraid that there won't be
enough money for their payroll
so they can keep the money
they want. There's no other rea-
son for this besides the shortage
of money. Who are they trying
to snow? They're only worried
about the money in their pocket
and what they may be losing.
They didn't care until now, when
our budget is so low we can't do
anything. The only ones they're
helping are themselves.
Betrayal. I'm calling about
the state redistricting process
and the fact that the house and
senate have appropriated $3
million to challenge the new
law the citizens had voted on.
I believe that the state should
not be challenging the citizens'
referendum. This is a govern-
ment by the people. The legisla-
tors are our employees and
they should not be challenging
something that 63 percent of
the people voted to put into
place. If another organization
wants to challenge it, that's fine,


Let 'em



















Have It
but our tax dollars should not
be used against us. That's using
tax dollars against the citizens
of the state and that's wrong.
Map request. What do I feel
about the new location of the
Farmers' Market from Centen-
nial Park to West Tampa Ave-
nue? I'd like to have an opinion
about this, but the articles I
have read have no map and do
not show the areas that would
be closed to automobiles and
the areas where one might
park in order to attend the
Farmers' Market. Therefore, I
would suggest that if you want
an opinion from the public,
that you publish a map so we
can form an opinion.
No map needed. I think it's
great that they're putting the
Farmers' Market on West Tampa
Avenue. It gives everybody room
to park so we can shop there.
Watch out. Just want to re-
mind everybody to keep watch
out for everybody's neighbors.
It's that time of year school's
out and whatnot and typically
there are home break-ins and
auto break-ins. This happened
last summer in the South Venice


area, as a lot of thefts occurred.
Looking at the sheriff's website,
in just the last 30 days there
have been close to 30 incidents
just in the South Venice area.
Car burglaries are on the rise. I
remember last summer, it was
dramatic. The best thing to do
is to watch out for each other.
If you are a person who stays at
home all day and you see some-
thing weird, call your police
department. Tell them "there's
a weird car," "there's a weird kid
that I've never seen in the neigh-
borhood," "a car is driving slow
through the neighborhood, you
might want to check it out." It
helps the residents and we don't
need a repeat of last summer. It
was through the roof. We need
to put an end to what's going on
out there.
Another view. Pam John-
son, please review your facts.
Past practice for rank-and-file
was a pay raise step every
year. The city said it could not
afford it, so the union said it
would work with the city. Ms.
Woodley said, "I'm not taking
the 5 percent to help the city."
Second, Ms. Woodley sits on
the committee for proposed
pay raises. She steers the
committee and the votes go
toward her recommendations.
Check the records. Third, it
was reported in this news-
paper that Ms. Woodley said
to council that taking home
vehicles was a perk to keep
good employees. As for salary
increases, a city employee
making between $25,000 and
$35,000 will bring home a one-
time check for around $350.
Ms. Woodley makes well more
than $100,000. If she needs it
so bad, I'll sign my $350 check
over to her. It was reported
that they would not fill the as-
sistant manager position; that
is, unless they find a new city
manager, then Ms. Woodley
would stay with her salary. Let
the layoffs begin.

Silver bullet to better education


In 1990, a remarkable
21-year-old Princeton
senior wrote a sociol-
ogy paper on teaching
in America. It changed
her life and the lives
of thousands of teach-
ers, students and whole
school systems.
Her research con-
vinced Wendy Kopp
that there were answers
to raising the gradua-
tion and grade levels in
low-achieving inner-city
schools. She believed it
could come from a new
corps of teachers of ex-


ceptional determination
and leadership.
The young graduate
raised $2.5 million from
Bill Gates and others to
found Teach for America.
It recruited graduates to
take a break for two years
of public-service com-
mitment before begin-
ning a planned career
or seeking a degree in
business, engineering or
law school. They were
challenged to teach in
low-achieving inner-city
schools.
The foundation team
selected 500 from among
2,500 applicants to get
a summer of rigorous
training that included
goal setting and training
in measuring results on
an almost daily basis.
Some of the recruits went
to extraordinary lengths
to lift their underper-
forming students two or


more grade levels in a
single academic year.
Twenty years later,
there are 5,000 Teach for
America alumni. Many
have chosen to make ed-
ucation their career and
have gone on to found
KIPP the Knowledge
Is Power Program, and
other schools.
There are 100 KIPP
college-preparatory
high schools across the
country. Some are char-
ter schools; others exist
within the traditional
school-system frame-
work. All are motivated
to lift their students
from the cycle of failure
to graduate from high
school and be accepted
by a college.
Other Teach for
America alumni have
started similar school
systems. One in the Rio
Grande Valley is part of


an IDEA public school
network or Individuals
Dedicated to Excellence
and Achievement. They
are open-enrollment
charter schools serving
7,000 students. They are
having measured success
in graduation and grade-
level performance well
beyond similar public-
school enrollments.
In the beginning
Wendy Kopp believed, as
I long have, that smaller
schools are critical to
solving low achievement
levels. The Bill & Me-
linda Gates Foundation
committed $2 billion in
foundation dollars to
creating small schools. It
proved that was not the
answer. New York City
was the exception, where
a loosening of bureau-
cratic control helped
gain some improvement
in results.


In her recent book, "A
Chance to Make History,"
Kopp and co-author Ste-
ven Farr cite study after
study that point out that
new technology, such as
computers on every desk
and magic-slate white
boards, will not do the
trick. Despite our Florida
constitutional require-
ment for smaller classes,
statistics suggest this is
another silver bullet that
missed the mark.
Charter schools and
small schools are fine,
but only if there is strong
leadership in the prin-
cipal's office and in the
classroom. Freedom to
depart from the norm
and system-designed
lesson plans work when
the teacher and school
administrators agree on
the goals and the goals are
being measured. Where
there is a lack of leader-


ship and initiative in
administration and class-
room, it is necessary to
be organized around rigid
policies and procedures.
Elected and selected
government leaders who
affect education, school-
teachers and admin-
istrators, and parents
of school-age children
concerned about an
education-dependent
future should find "A
Chance to Make History"
interesting reading.
After listening to the
audio version while exer-
cising, I bought the hard
copy. A third reading is in
store to think about how
the lessons in transform-
ing education results
apply to business.

I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


They did it again


Remember sometime
back when the citizens
of Sarasota County were
denied the term limits
that they had voted to
approve? Well now, the
county commissioners
have done it to us again
by ramming through a
redistricting plan that is
beneficial for the sitting
commissioners but did
nothing favorably for the
citizenry of Venice and
North Port.
How sad was it that
only one redistricting
plan was considered?
The same old one, de-
spite all the changes to
the shifting population,
was approved. Wouldn't
it have been more honor-
able had they at least
voted on the other plans
that were presented?
Perhaps that would have


possibly exposed those
commissioners who were
primarily concerned with
hanging onto their seats.
How then can we ever
feel fairly represented
when, in fact, our county
commissioners choose
not to listen?
Put it in writing on
your ballot in November.

Charline Cristofori
North Port

It sounds bad, but...

Editor:
Articles have been
published in local papers
enumerating the truly
dire consequences of
trimming the Venice
Fire Department budget
by 20 percent, to wit:
catastrophic impacts to
the service level provided
to our community, a
compromising of the life


safety of our citizens and
responders and putting
the public in danger.
Yada, yada, yada. Makes
you wonder how North
Port, Englewood, and
Sarasota manage to avoid
these perils with fewer
firefighters per capital
than we have. And a lower
ratio of supervisors than
nine lieutenants and three
battalion chiefs for 27 fire-
medics in a department
of 47.5 persons. And fewer
firefighters per square
mile than Venice has.
Several years ago the
VFD hired a consultant
to lead the way to a
transfer of fire funding
from our ad valorem
taxes to a yearly fire
fee. At that time, it was
pointed out in a study
by Gary Budway that
Venice charges far more
for fire service fees than
do North Port, Engle-
wood and Sarasota. We


charge more, we employ
more people and cutting
back would endanger us?
Yeah, right.
In the almost 12 years
I have lived here I have
read nothing analogous to
the weekly police reports
that come out listing the
often-hazardous work
and achievements of our
Venice Police Department.
There never has been any
yearly or even monthly
or weekly breakdown
that I have seen as to the
number of fires responded
to, the number of hazmat
events responded to, the
number of fires quelled
on boats,the number of
water emergencies and
the number of paramedic
runs to Venice Regional
Medical Center. We have
had so few fires in Venice
in the past 10 years that I
suspect that most of the
activities performed by
the Venice Fire Depart-


ment involve medical
response.
Moreover, I understand
that three Sarasota fire
stations surround our city.
If this is true, why would
our response time be af-
fected by fewer firefighters
with Sarasota firefighters
readily available?
Just give us the facts,
please, before telling us
that the sky is falling in.

Rosemary Vauzanges
Venice

Faithful are
also hopeful

Editor:
Sixteen dedicated
Catholics, members of
the Venice Voice of the
Faithful, attended the
American Catholic Coun-
cil in Detroit recently. We
were energized by our
unity and transformed by


the encouragement of six
inspired speakers.
During the closing lit-
urgy, as we proudly wore
red stoles representing
concelebration with
the priest, our signed
approvals of the new
Catholic Bill of Rights
and Responsibilities were
presented at the altar
and will be delivered to
the bishops. We salute
the courage of Father
Wurm, who presided
despite the threat of
Detroit's Archbishop
Vigneron to defrock any
clergy who attended.
We look forward, in
God's time, to the flower-
ing of the seeds we are
planting, to a church
Jesus would recognize
and where all would be
welcome.

Venice opens with victory


MR. SHEEPSHEAD

Reports of

pompano biting

The pompano are start-
ing to bite, as I received
two such reports in our
immediate area for the
first time in two months.
On Saturday morning,
Andy S. decided to try his
luck at the Venice jetty.
Using a Pompano Dave
Jig, he caught two nice
pompano. He said he had
the entire jetty to him-
self because of the rain.
Maybe the rain cooled
down the water.
I also got reports of
a few pompano being
caught at the Skyway
Bridge piers as well as in
the Boca Grande area.
The pompano were not
around in April or May
when they were supposed
to be and now they are
here. What is going on?
Now is the time to try
freshwater bass fishing.
The ponds and lakes have
filled up with the recent
rainstorms. I fish almost
every evening from about
7 p.m. until dark and
the other night I caught
my largest bass ever. For
more information about
this catch, check out
Waterline or visit www.

Well, fellow Sheepshead-
ites, the time has come
to say goodbye until next
week.

FOOTBALL: WHATEVER HAPPENED TO ALVIN MITCHELL?




The Gospel of Alvin



For a former Venice standout, the Word is his deed


By PATRICK OBLEY
STAFF WRITER
There was no past or future as Alvin
Mitchell's car spun toward certain
doom during that steamy July day in
2000.
Here and now, there were only ques-
tions. Mitchell flashed through the
curious series of incidents that had
transpired to bring him to this lonely
stretch of road just beyond the Fort
Meade town limits. The dominoes had
fallen, one by one, until this moment.
And as his car skidded down a ravine
toward a light pole, the first line of his
obituary was fairly obvious:
Former Tampa Bay Buccaneer and
Venice High standoutAlvin Mitchell
died this afternoon because he was
stupid.
With that, Mitchell arrived at the only
possible conclusion:
Doggone, that wallet just wasn't
worth it.
Jesus...

It's Father's Day and the preacher has
something to say to the three dozen
or so who have crammed into the tiny
storefront church at 123 West Broadway.
Mario had just poured his heart out
in a rendition of "Open the Floodgates
in Heaven." It made Meemaw cry while
sitting in the front pew.
Ricardo had just delivered an en-
ergetic reading, Blondia at his side,
working the keyboard. Surely, on the
sparsely populated sidewalk outside
the Friendship Baptist Church, the Lord
is touching passersby.
But it's Pastor Mitchell's turn now.
It's Father's Day and the father of three
girls wants to talk about the Holy
Father.
Psalm 23. The Lord is My Shepherd.
There is no other passage in the Bible
more well-known.
In the week leading up to this ser-
mon, Pastor Mitchell has discovered
new meaning in the ancient words and
he's bursting to share the wisdom that
had been whispered in his ear by the
Almighty.
During the next 30 minutes, he spells
out how the Psalm reveals God's role as
the father of us all. He strides quickly
from side to side, his voice rising and
falling, crashing like the tide over the
shoals of the faithful.
"Yep, that's Alvin for ya," Meemaw
would say a little later. "He's just burst-
ing to tell ya. He's like the Energizer
Bunny."
Meemaw is a touch biased. Mitchell
is married to her daughter.
Near the back of the tiny church,
Jeannie claps and smiles in unison with
her husband.

Two weeks later, as the rest of the
world geared up for the Fourth of July,
the extended Johnson-Mitchell clan
gathered at the corner of Third Street
and Lanier for the Johnson Family
Wipeout Fun Day.
A bounce house entertains the little
ones. A DJ spins tunes.
Jeannie Mitchell is working everyone
through a series of deceivingly difficult
games she has cribbed off the TV show
"Minute to Win It."
Her husband isn't preaching the
Word on this day. Instead, his ministra-
tions are focused on the barbecue grill.
It's here and now Mitchell tells the
story of his life. How he arrived at this
point in time. He knows that most folks
back in his hometown of Venice knew
him as one of the best football players
in Venice High history. He also knows a
great deal of those people have no idea
what happened to him upon graduat-
ing in 1982.
He figures there's still about one in
five people here in Fort Meade who
never were aware he played for the
Buccaneers. That's OK.
The Sarasota Herald-Tribune let that
particular cat out of the bag in June
when Mitchell checked in at No. 34
on its list of the all-time top 100 local
football players. One of the players he
coaches on a volunteer basis texted his
daughter, Angel:
I didn't know there was a living leg-
end in Fort Meade! Wow, your dad was
a beast!
"I knew there were people who didn't
know, but I didn't think one of my own


players, players I coach, would not
know," Mitchell said with a laugh, be-
fore turning serious. "You know, I worry
about this next generation. I fear they
don't know what kind of work it took to
get where we are now. I fear the thing
that's missing with this generation is
commitment and dedication."
Mitchell knows about commitment.
He knows dedication.
And he knows fear.

The past
In those first years after graduation,
Mitchell ran. It was all he knew to do.
He believed he had disappointed
everyone, especially himself. He was
supposed to be a star, but instead, he
had been laying stone.
Bank president Dave Voigt had
plucked the youngest of four brothers
in a family of eight out of the broiling
sun and put him behind a teller's win-
dow at a local branch, but at the end
of the day, Mitchell would change his
clothes and run.
Running on the beach, away from
everyone, he spoke daily to God and
asked why he had been such a failure.
It hardly mattered that he was passing
on college because he was helping his
family make ends meet.
"At first, it was shattering," Mitch-
ell said. "I felt like I let so many folks
down. I knew I had an opportunity to
play ball, but it seemed like that door
had closed."
It seemed as if God had no answer.
Then one day, two years after his
graduation, coaches from Auburn
University came to town to scout the
next big thing out of Venice High. The
late Indians coach Jim Powell said, "If
you're gonna recruit this kid, you've got
to see this kid who came out a couple
of years ago."
So, the entourage made its way to the
bank where Mitchell worked.
They were smitten.
"I'll give him half a scholarship just
looking at him," one coach said.
Maybe God had answered, after all.
But the son of a diabetic rock hauler
and domestic housekeeper needed
more than half a scholarship to make it
in major college football.
"It took me two days to earn a full
scholarship," Mitchell said. "And that's
only because we weren't in pads on the
first day."
Now, Mitchell knows that sounds im-
modest. But ...
"It was something I knew I had to
do. I had to walk on and I had to prove
myself. My family couldn't afford it. I
was going to have to earn it on my back
and there's no greater motivation.
"I had to do it. I had to," Mitchell
said, banging his fist on a knee with
each had. "To get that scholarship ...
well ... I was very grateful. I'm very
seldom at a loss for words but ... I was
proud."
And he was in love. There was a
woman named Jeannie who had come
into his life not long before he left for
Auburn.
She has been at his side ever since.
* *
A solid career at Auburn didn't ma-
terialize into a draft selection in 1989,
but Mitchell did receive an invite to the
Bucs' preseason camp to compete for a

Baptist Church in Fort
Meade, talks with Linda
Lewis, the Christian
education director.
spot as a running back.
It was as if he were repeating that
first week at Auburn.
"I was like being a small fish in a big
pond," he said. "I was surrounded by
athletes who were all at the top of their
game, but I was at an all-time high. I
think I ran 4.4 seconds in the 40-yard
sprint while wearing cleats."
His hard work earned Mitchell a spot
on the Bucs' practice squad. Not that
he knew it.
"I worked out so hard that day that
when I went home, I fell asleep. My
agent called and called, but I didn't
pick up the phone," Mitchell said with
a laugh. "I asked him when he started
calling me, and he said as soon as I had
left the field."
For 11 weeks, Mitchell toiled on the
team's developmental squad. Then on
Thanksgiving weekend, as the Bucs
traveled to Phoenix to play the Cardi-
nals, he got his big break.
"I thought I was going to start that
week. James Wilder had gotten injured
and they called me up," Mitchell said.
"I practiced all week at tailback."
But he was on the sideline as the
game began. Time passed, and there he
remained.
Finally, on a third-and-long, Mitchell
entered the game.
"It was my first play and they called a
play that was for me," Mitchell said. "A
screen pass. My first play! Wow, man, I
get a chance to leave a history!"
Little was expected of Mitchell. The
Bucs were pinned deep in their own
territory and all they wanted was a little
extra breathing room to get off a punt
on fourth down.
"Yeah, I think we needed 25 or some-
thing yards for a first down," Mitchell
said. "I think I got 12. Maybe it was just
five."
It was 11 yards.
And it was over.

Look up Alvin Mitchell on www.
pro-football-reference.com and all one
will see is one catch for 11 yards on
Nov. 26, 1989.
He played on special teams during
the final four weeks of that season, but
he could see the writing on the wall.
"It had been a losing season and I
knew there was going to be some ad-
justing to the roster," Mitchell said.
That following summer, Mitchell hurt
his hip. The Bucs eventually cut him.
Detroit offered an invite, but he
declined.
Jeannie was pregnant. Living on
football's fringe was no way to build a
future.
"It was great to finish the season," he
said, "but the day they cut me, I knew
it was over. I was ready to build some-
thing concrete. It took us about three
hours to get out of Tampa."
Mitchell told Jeannie to find them a
new life. As he and some former team-
mates filled a U-Haul, Jeannie went in
search of that new life in the only place
she knew to go.
She went back to her hometown: Fort
Meade.
As soon as he arrived, Mitchell joined
the Polk County Sheriff's Office. He
went to an academy for a year before
joining the force.
He has been there ever since.


Soon, Alicia was born. Then Angel.
Then Alex.
They built a house at the corner of
Third Street and Lanier.
Everything was fine. That is, until the
day Alvin Mitchell lost his wallet.

The future
Mitchell's future begins 11 years in
the past. On a lonely stretch of road
just beyond the Fort Meade town
limits.
It begins in a car careening out of
control.
No, maybe it begins before that.
"I lost my wallet some place and
when somebody called me to tell me
they found it, I drove out to get it,"
Mitchell said. "On the way back from
getting it, I never bothered to check the
gas needle. I ran out of gas."
So, he was going to be late to work.
He hiked a short distance to a gas sta-
tion. It began to rain.
Under way again, for some reason he
put on his seat belt. He never wore his
seat belt.
Why did he do that?
Suddenly, his car hydroplaned.
"I was headed down the ditch and
right for the light pole," Mitchell said.
"It was just my time, I thought."
But as he prepared for an end,
Mitchell endured a new beginning. The
car missed the light pole and bounced
back up to the road, back into the lane
as if nothing had happened.
Jesus...

The burgers are finished, but the
games are not. Jeannie has herded
everyone over to a mound of cups
for a game that has to be seen to be
believed.
Smiles are the day's currency. Good
feelings are the product. The sun is
shining and in the shade of trees, the
breeze is, well, divine.
Mitchell distributes juice packets as
he winds up the Gospel of Alvin.
"You know what it is? When you lose
your wallet, you lose your identity,"
he says. "I had to lose my identity that
day. I needed to become someone else.
I had been ignoring God's call all that
time, but the Lord came to me that day
and said I need to go to school and
learn to preach the gospel."
Mitchell opened Friendship Bap-
tist Church in 2004. Today, there are
roughly 75 members.
His football days are a distant
memory, but the extended family con-
tinues the athletic legacy. Jamaal and
Rumeal play college football. Alicia, 20,
is at Johnson & Wales University on a
basketball scholarship. Angel, 18, starts
next month at Stillman College on a
basketball scholarship.
One day soon, Mitchell will retire
from the sheriff's office and preach full
time.
"It's just a great blessing for me. The
Lord has blessed me. Look at what he's
done," Mitchell says, spreading his
arms at the jovial scene that surrounds
him.
"I enjoy pastoring because I like
watching people grow. I like watching
their lives transform, to see them really
start trusting the Lord.
"It's not so much about me, but it's
... I know I'm being obedient. Spread-
ing the Word is like making your dad
proud. That's who I am now."
Jeannie sneaks an arm around her
husband as he does the same.
"How handsome," she says.
"I married one of the top athletes
in the state of Florida!" he says with a
bellow. Then he crooks an eyebrow and
leans in conspiratorially.
"You know what? She ain't far from it
now, either."
For some, God's plan involves one
door closing and another opening.
For Mitchell, God has been a traveling
companion. Sometimes, it was a jog on
the beach. Other times, it was a drive,
with Him at the wheel.
"How else can you explain that day?"
Mitchell says. "A person can't do it all
himself. He needs help."
For Mitchell, there's no denying who
is supplying that help.
Jesus.

GOP club to host Senate candidates


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER
Two Republican Party
candidates for the U.S.
Senate seat currently held
by Democrat Bill Nelson
will speak this month be-
fore the Republican Club
of South Sarasota County.
The club holds its regu-
lar meetings at 11:30 a.m.
on the second Wednesday
of each month at Venice
Gardens Community
Center, 406 Shamrock
Blvd. The featured speaker
on July 13 will be former
state Rep. Adam Hasner of
Delray Beach, a GOP Sen-
ate candidate who served
as House majority leader
from 2008 to 2010.
A complimentary light
lunch will be served.


Former U.S. Sen. George
LeMieux of Tallahassee,
who is running to return
to the Senate in 2012, will
be the featured speaker at
a meeting from 6 to 8 p.m.
July 27 at the South Venice
Civic Association, 720
Alligator Drive.
Complimentary snacks
will be served. The club
collects toiletries, read-
ing materials and other
items for military troops
at each meeting.
LeMieux served as
Florida's deputy attorney
general under Attorney
General Charlie Crist and
chief of staff to Crist when
Crist was elected governor
in 2006. Crist appointed
LeMieux as a U.S. senator
in August 2009 when Sen.
Mel Martinez resigned.


After LeMieux declined to
seek election to that seat,
Crist, a Republican, ran as
an independent in 2010
but lost to current Repub-
lican Sen. Marco Rubio.
The club's website is
www.rcsscgop.com. For
more information, call
941-473-3351 or 941-493-
1255, or email gigi737@
comcast.net.
Established in the mid-
1990s, the Republican Club
of South Sarasota County
has evolved and grown
from a group that once
met in an upstairs office
on Venice island with a few
chairs, then at the Venice
Area Chamber of Com-
merce building and now in
the Venice Gardens Com-
munity Center, where it
can host "as many people


as come," club president
Peachie DeYoung said.
"People enjoy it because
it's not so businesslike. It's
just a group of Republicans
trying to get information
out to the community."
DeYoung joined a few
years after the club was
formed, when she moved
down from Ohio. The
club grew from about
20 members then to 354
paid members today.
"We have such a good
working club and we
have such a relaxed
meeting," she said. "Peo-
ple come in laughing. If
they need information,
if we don't have it there,
we look it up and get it to
them. We're always avail-
able to any Republican."
The club works on


local, state and national
elections.
For the 2010 local elec-
tions, DeYoung said, "We
worked very hard. What-
ever anybody needed."
DeYoung said the club's
next goal is to organize
all of the approximately
45 precincts in the area
to find people who can


make 10 to 20 calls (from
home) to residents of
their precincts, to ask if
they need any informa-
tion or campaign signs.
The club's member-
ship fees are $25 per
person annually or $40
for husband and wife.

Education Association
have filed a class ac-
tion lawsuit against the
state in conjunction with
other unions.
The group said recent
pension reform that
requires state employees
to contribute 3 percent
of their salaries to the
Florida Retirement Sys-
tem is unconstitutional.
"This is not a frivolous
lawsuit. This is a bona
fide legal issue that needs
to be resolved," said FEA
attorney Ron Meyer, who
added that other provi-
sions in the pension re-
form, such as changes to
the cost-of-living adjust-
ment, also were weighed
in the group's decision to
sue the state.
Eleven groups are cur-
rently involved. Meyer


'Texcellence'

gets $100,000

grant from

foundation

By STEVEN J. SMITH
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Cindy Kaiser, executive
director of the Education
Foundation, acknowl-
edged a contribution of
$100,000 from Selby for
its "Texcellence" Program
at a recent meeting of the
Sarasota County School
Board.
The program was cre-
ated in 2007 to ensure
that every student in the
Sarasota County School
District has access to a
computer at home. The
Education Foundation
has sought to achieve this
goal by creating partner-
ships with community
businesses and organi-
zations that contribute
computer equipment,
monetary donations, or
both.
"We are providing com-
puters, in-depth train-
ing and in some cases, a
year's worth of Internet
access for families in
need," Kaiser said. "We're
proud to say that on
June 7 we marked a mile-
stone, giving away 4,500
computers to date."
Kaiser said that the
Texcellence Program
costs $200,000 per year
to manage, and the Selby
Foundation has stepped
up with a $100,000 grant
for the initiative. Kaiser
invited Sarah Pappas,
president of the Selby
Foundation, to the meet-
ing to thank her person-
ally for the grant.
"Bill and Marie Selby
about 60 years ago had
the intelligence to leave
a legacy to Sarasota
County," Pappas said.
"They left an endowment
fund, to live in perpetu-
ity, to help children in the
whole area. I doubt either
of them dreamed that
this fund would one day
help school children have
computers."
In a related ceremony
that day, Kaiser presented
Steve Cantees, executive
director of high schools
for the district, with a
check for $13,000 in sup-
port of the High School
Literacy Reform Initiative,
and $5,000 to the Deci-
sions to Win Program.
The Literacy Reform Ini-
tiative benefits more than
5,000 county students by
training ninth- and 10th-
grade teachers to get lag-


going students up to speed
in reading and writing,
while the Decisions to
Win Program matches
mentors with students
in danger of failing to
graduate.


said that they are still
welcoming more groups
to join the suit, and that
members of the Police
Benevolent Association
said they were interested
in joining after the FEA
issued a press release.
The suit asks the state
to put the money state
workers contribute in


an interest-bearing ac-
count until the matter is
resolved. Klenovic said
the state would likely
collect $1 billion total in
contributions over the
next fiscal year.

Doing what comes naturally


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Doing what she loves
to do earned national
recognition for Margi
Miller of Venice.
Miller recently re-
turned from Washing-
ton, D.C., where she was
one of 26 volunteers
selected from 17 states
to be honored by the
MetLife Foundation's
Older Volunteers Enrich
America Awards pro-
gram. Honorees ranged
in age from 54 to 92. Or-
ganizations they repre-
sented are as disparate
as the Epilepsy Foun-
dation, Tax-Aide for
Seniors, the Alzheimer's
Foundation, Meals on
Wheels, Foster Grandpar-
ent, PET (which makes
and distributes three-
wheelers to the elderly),
Aging and Disability
Services, Hospice and the
League of Women Voters.
There were nearly 200
nominations.
Miller knew what she
wanted to do even before
she was able to do it: She
wanted to play the harp
for hospice patients.
To learn to play that
instrument, she turned
to Harp Therapy Interna-
tional. It helped that she
had some basic musical
knowledge. She learned
to play and by June
2009 she was providing
bedside harp recitals
for patients at Tidewell
Hospice of Venice. The
family of one patient was
so moved by her play-
ing that she was invited
to play at the patient's
funeral.
The more time she
spent at the six-patient
home, the more involved
she became. Her next
step was to have her dog
certified as a pet therapy
dog.
"She's a particularly
soft-haired doggie,"
Miller said. "She's 2 years
old and snuggly."
The dog has proven
especially helpful for
distracting day patients
who are simply there
for a short check-up.
After getting some extra
hugs that way, the dog
and owner are off to
the patient floor. Miller
said that a Parkinson's
patient who has given
up on therapy will make
an effort to stroke the
dog, getting some thera-
peutic benefits despite
himself.
"She literally trans-
forms the hallway with

dog for hospice patients.


her mission of doggie
show-and-tell," Miller
said.
Miller said the dog
knows it is therapy day
the minute Miller pulls
out its little blue Tidewell
therapy dog scarf.
Miller even adds vol-
unteer hours at home,
where she burns DVDs
of the life stories of
patients. Jane Welsh, the
facility's media person,
works with the patients
to create living histories.
"She does the raw foot-
age and I do the DVD,"
Miller said."A young
father diagnosed with
brain cancer was vid-
eotaped reading a story
book to his two children,
who were 18 months and
younger."
After additional spe-
cialized training, Miller
also serves as a spiritual
care volunteer, working
with chaplains and men-
toring new volunteers.
As a Vigil Volunteer, she
sits at the bedside of
patients in their final
hours.
"If relatives are not
there, every volunteer
takes a two-hour stint
and stays with the pa-
tient," she said.
Using all these skills,
Miller spends 10 to 12
hours per week in her
work for Tidewell, she
said.


She was nominated
for the award by Stacy
Groff, director of volun-
teer services of Tidewell
Hospice.
"Margi is a key volun-
teer at Tidewell," Groff
wrote in the nomination
letter.
Groff accompanied
Miller to the award
ceremony.
The panel of judges
included representatives
of MetLife, AARP and
several senior volunteer
agencies. Honorees re-
ceived stipends to attend
the ceremony in Wash-
ington and the nomi-
nating agencies each
received $1,000.
A longtime marathon
runner, Miller, 69, often
rides her bike to meet-
ings and other assign-
ments. She is bilingual
(Spanish and English)
and tech savvy.
The week of the award
trip, she spend an after-
noon training more than
15 volunteers on the role
of music in the lives of
hospice patients.
"I love doing this," she
said.

FROM ST. MICHAEL'S
COLLEGE
Kaitlyn Casey, of
Venice, a student at
Cardinal Mooney High
School, was named the
2011 recipient of the St.
Michael's College Book
Award for Academic
Achievement with a
Social Conscience.
The award recognizes

towns, was founded
on the belief that serv-
ing others is part of its
Catholic tradition, and
through the award seeks
to honor those who dem-
onstrate the true spirit of
volunteerism.
Award recipients,
named at schools
throughout the country,
are high school juniors
who are inductees of
the National Honor
Society or an equivalent
school-sponsored honors
organization. They must
demonstrate a commit-
ment to service activities

taking leadership roles in
these activities.
Kaitlyn was presented
the book "First They
Killed My Father: A
Daughter of Cambodia
Remembers," by Loung
Ung, a 1993 St. Michael's
College graduate who
has become a widely
acclaimed author. In
the book, Ung gives a


powerful autobiographical
account, from a child's
perspective, of surviv-
ing captivity during the
genocidal Pol Pot regime
in Cambodia. She reveals
an indomitable spirit in
the face of profound suf-
fering, including the loss
of both her parents and
two of her siblings. Ung
has written a riveting


memoir about a family's
survival, and in turn,
about the development


of Ung's ongoing crusade
for a landmine-free
world.

I GOREN BRIDGE
WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:

A K93 AJ 105 0AQ94KQ6

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

A You are too strong for a jump to
three no trump, which shows 16-18
points. Since you do not know where
you want to play the hand, all you can
do to leave the maximum room for
exploration is to respond one heart
and get partner's reaction.

Q 2 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

4QJ952AK8540 66AK7

The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
1V Pass 20 Pass
?9
What do you bid now?

A Despite the possible misfit, you
must do something to display your 17
high-card points. The logical way to
accomplish that without getting too
high is to make the reverse bid of two
spades and see how partner likes that.

Q 3 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

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

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

A You have just enough to conduct
an invitational auction in a major.
Start by bidding two clubs to inquire
about partner's major-suit holdings.
If partner denies a major with a two-
club response, bid two hearts. Since
you would simply have bid two
hearts with a weak hand (or
transferred into hearts if that is your
style), this sequence is invitational.

Q 4 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

6KQ105Y740A9446AQJ8


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
14 Pass 1
24 Pass ?
What do you bid now?


WEST
Pass


A An already good hand has been
improved by the double fit. However,
you must start by finding out more
about partner's hand, so we suggest
you bid three clubs now. If there is
slam in the cards, partner will have to
show a heart control somewhere
along the line.

Q 5 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:
6J9652 AKJ820 A947

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

A With two four-card suits, you
respond up-the-line, i.e., you bid your
hearts first. But when you hold two
five-card suits, bid your higher-
ranking suit first regardless of suit
quality, then the lower-ranking suit
twice, if necessary. Respond one
spade.

Q 6 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:


68 AQJ62


QJ966AQ8


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
1F Pass 20 Pass
9
What do you bid now?

A It depends on style. If you play
that a two-over-one response is
game-forcing, it is enough to set the
suit now by bidding three diamonds.
If, however, you play that three
diamonds can be passed then you
must do more. In both instances three
clubs would be our second choice.

has a degree in library science
and information technology
from Rutgers University.

The special person of this
week is Sheila Kaufer.
This nice lady is the youth li-

Jacaranda Public Library. She
loves helping students choose
books and motivating them to
read. She helps make the youth
area at the library a cheerful
welcoming place. She strives
to bring activities to the library
that will inspire students to
want more.
When not at the library, she is
an active member of the Wom-
en's Sertoma Club of Venice. She
works on committees and is
an organizer of the annual Sun
Fiesta. Her friendly spirit makes
her a terrific friend.
Sheila Kaufer is one of the
women who make Venice a great

Wife in the dark about affairs MALLAF

wants husband to shed light r


DEAR ABBY: How can
I forget and forgive my
husband for his actions?
It has been only a few
months since I found out
about his affairs which
lasted over four months
with three different
women. One was more
intense than the others.
He says he has broken off
all contact with them and
is only with me now.
When I learned about
the affairs, I had no in-
formation other than he
was having one. Someone
I didn't know told me, so
I did not have much to
go on. I have asked my
husband some questions,
but he refuses to answer
them. He says I should let
it go and move on, that
my questions will lead
to no good, and if I don't
stop I'm going to push
him away.
I think about what he
has done and different
scenarios daily and try to
ignore the hurt, but it's
hard. Should I ask ques-
tions, should he answer
them, and will this pain
ever go away? We are
"trying," and I'm running
mostly on love and the
hope that our relationship
will survive. IN PAIN IN
PITTSBURGH
DEAR IN PAIN: Of
course you should be ask-
ing questions because you
have the right to know the
answers. And if your hus-
band is truly repentant,
he should answer them.
Your pain will persist un-
less you both have coun-
seling to understand what
triggered his four-month
"fling." If he refuses to go,
go without him.
Frankly, I am troubled
by your statement that
your husband is threaten-
ing you'll push him away
if you pursue the answers
you deserve. That doesn't
appear to me to be the be-
havior of a contrite spouse.
If you haven't already
done so, see your physi-
cian and be tested for
STDs. All of the emotions
you're experiencing are
normal, but whether your
relationship will survive
under the present circum-
stances is debatable.
DEAR ABBY: I'm a mar-
ried woman in my 40s,


Dear Abby

raising a family. I work
full-time doing a physi-
cal job outdoors and after
work I'm often worn out.
My hobby is art. I have
drawn and painted since
I was very young. My
problem is, I'm afraid to
say no when relatives ask
me to do arts and crafts
for them. They even vol-
unteer me to do projects
for their friends. If money
is offered, I usually turn it
down.
The issue is the time
involved. I'm stressed out.
I drop everything when
I get these requests, and
I'm starting to feel over-
whelmed and annoyed. I
have to do these projects
before and after my regu-
lar job and on weekends.
My house and family get
neglected. And because I
can't devote the necessary
time to the projects, I'm
unhappy with the result.
I have dropped hints
about how I'm tired after
working a full-time job,
but no one seems to care.
How can I tell them I need
a break without upsetting
them? BURNED-OUT
PICASSO
DEAR BURNED-OUT:
You need to learn to say
no. For a people-pleaser
this can present a chal-
lenge, but in your case it
should be followed with,
"I'm too busy to take
that on right now." You
should also rethink your
refusal to accept the offer
of money. If you do, it will
probably result in your
being asked to do projects
less often trust me on
that.
Also consider this: If
you turn your hobby into
a little side business and
charge for your talent, it
may enable you to fund
projects that will give you
some of the psychic grati-
fication you're missing.


"He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with
silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this
is also vanity." -Ecclesiastes 5:10.
Material prosperity, no matter how much, can't
satisfy the hunger of a human heart. "Only Jesus can
satisfy your soul."

SHOE By MacNelly Productions


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


I HOROSCOPE
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Actors know this to be
true: It's always easier to stay in character when
you're in costume. When you look the part, it's a
breeze to act the part.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Sometimes being
around people gives you energy. Other times it
drains you.The optimal scenario is to get your social
interaction in small doses. A little bit of fellowship
goes a long way.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21).You'll grow rich as
you pair your ideas with thoughtful investigation.


You'll determine the best course of action and will
be willing to adjust the plan as needed. And most
importantly, you'll follow through.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are wise not to
worry about what another person is thinking about
you. It's usually best to assume people are thinking
about something other than you.You'll relax into
the moment, and your concerns will melt away.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You'll study what has already
been done, partly out of respect for the ones who
came before you, but also because you realize that
understanding what has been done will help you
know what to do next.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).The leisure days of sum-
mer will seem to you to be a myth. The hours march
on, each bringing a new challenge. Luckily, you love
the feeling of forward motion and are not the least
bit afraid of work.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Go forward with
confidence. All the evidence suggests you can trust
yourself. Look at how often you've done what the
situation required.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Do as your sign mate
Will Rogers suggested:"Live in such a way that you
would not be ashamed to sell your parrot to the
town gossip."


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You will cooperate
with others to achieve an aim.The work doesn't
seem difficult when everyone is doing it together.
In fact, life is easier when you operate within a
small group.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). At the buffet of life,
you appreciate all that catches your eye. But you
know you'll never be able to consume it all without
causing yourself pain.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).Your experiences
seem to be adding up to something much better
than you predicted. You feel like you're getting closer
to being the person you were always intended to be.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You'll be around and
among the highly educated, but don't forget about
common sense. Knowing a lot never made anyone
wise. Say less, listen more, and act judiciously.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (July 6). It's your turn to
receive in July, so get into gracious acceptance
mode, and don't be overly worried about when and
how you will pay people back. That will happen
in time.There's a fantastic opportunity to advance
your talents or professional interests in August. Love
is strong in September. October brings adventure.
Libra and Sagittarius people adore you.Your lucky
numbers are: 40,1, 24, 39 and 2.


JANRIC CLASSIC SUDOKU
Fill in the blank cells using numbers 1 to 9. Each number can appear only once in each row,
column and 3x3 block. Use logic and process of elimination to solve the puzzle. The difficulty
level ranges from Bronze (easiest) to Silver to Gold (hardest).

This sinus is in

the heart, not the head


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I've had a couple of dizzy
spells that made me think
I was going to pass out.
When I told my doctor
about them, he imme-
diately took an EKG and
then had me wear a heart
monitor. He now says I
need a pacemaker. I'm
84 and don't think I'm up
to a heart operation. The
doctor says I have sick
sinus syndrome, and I
could die suddenly. Is a
pacemaker the only way
to treat it? S.J.
ANSWER: "Sinus"
makes you think of the
head's sinuses. The sinus
mentioned here is the
sinus node, located in the
upper-right heart cham-
ber, the right atrium. It's
the heart's pacemaker,
installed by nature. It's
only about half an inch in
diameter. It has the im-
portant job of triggering
every heartbeat. It dis-
charges an electric signal
that travels all the way to
the heart's bottom cham-
bers, the ventricles, the
blood-pumping cham-
bers. When the signal
arrives at its destination,
the ventricles contract.
Sick sinus syndrome
indicates that the sinus
node isn't working up to
par. It may be sending
out too few signals, so the
heart rate drops precipi-
tously. Or it suddenly can
speed up so that the heart
is beating too fast. Or it
might stop sending sig-
nals, causing long pauses
in the heartbeat.
People with this syn-
drome often suffer from
dizzy spells that put them
on the verge of fainting.
Fatigue, shortness of
breath and the inability to
do much physical activ-
ity are other signs that
the sinus node is in deep
trouble.
Sick sinus syndrome
sounds like an exoti-
cally rare condition; it
isn't. It's the reason
why 50 percent of all
artificial pacemakers
are installed. No other
treatment compares to
the results given by a
pacemaker.
Hooking the heart up
to a pacemaker doesn't
involve a heart opera-
tion. The pacing device
is smaller than a deck of
cards and is placed under
the skin of the upper-left
chest below the col-
larbone. Wires from the
pacemaker are threaded
into the heart by way of a
vein. You'll be surprised
how quickly you're back
on your feet, doing all the
things you did before the
procedure.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
The child next door has
pinkeye, according to his
mom. She hasn't taken
the boy to a doctor be-
cause she says it's a virus
and gets better on its
own. Should I let my boy
play with the neighbor
boy? It's contagious, isn't
it? D.E.
ANSWER: "Pinkeye"
most often refers to
infection of the conjunc-
tiva, the cellophanelike
covering over the whites
of the eye. The infection
is either a bacterium
or a virus. A bacterial
infection produces a
thick, yellow, white or
green discharge as well
as eye redness. A viral
infection gives rise to a
more watery discharge.
Both types of infection
are contagious, eas-
ily passed from one to
another.
Pinkeye patients need
to see a doctor. If it's a
bacterial infection, antibi-
otic ointments or drops
are prescribed. For a viral
infection, soothing drops
are available.
If a person, adult or
child, with pinkeye says
it feels like something
is stuck in the eye and
keeps the eyelid closed,
if bright light bothers
the infected individual,
or if vision is blurred,
an immediate visit to
an eye doctor is manda-
tory. These symptoms
indicate an infection
that must be treated
quickly.
There's another cause
of pinkeye that I didn't
mention allergy. That's
a different story.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
Since I was a young
child, I was told not to
use public restrooms
because I could catch
something. What are the
chances of catching a
disease from them?
- EN.
ANSWER: Yours is a
fear shared by many. If
public restrooms were
a source of infections,
they would be closed.
They're not. As far as
sexually transmitted
diseases go, I have never
seen any information
that implicates them in
passing such infections
to others.

Seasoning wooden bowls


BORN LOSER By Art and Chip Sansom

BLONDIE By Dean Young and John Marshall


TNKEE.

ii ANN


Dear Heloise: I have a
WOODEN SALAD BOWL
with four smaller bowls. It
has been in the cupboard
for quite a while, and I
would like to know how
to sanitize it for use again.
- A Reader, via email
Wood bowls can last for
years and look lovely with
just a little care. I have
some of my parents' that
are more than 50 years
old! Clean them using a
mild detergent and warm
water, making sure to
rinse and dry thoroughly.
NEVER put wood items in
the dishwasher or allow
them to soak in water.
If you want to sanitize
them, a very mild solu-
tion of bleach and water
should do the job. Mix 1
tablespoon of bleach with
1 quart of water, wipe on,
let sit 20 minutes, rinse
and dry.
Season the bowls by
using a paper towel to
spread a layer of mineral
oil over them. Let soak
in overnight. When the
wood dulls, it's time to re-
season. Heloise

Saving bacon
Dear Heloise: On my
days off, I love making
breakfast for myself,
including bacon. Being
single, a pound of bacon
goes bad before I use it
up. Now, before I open
the package, I use a large
knife and cut it down the
center. I make two more
cuts on either side, giving
me six rows of 2-inch
pieces. I put each row into


Hints from Heloise

a plastic snack bag, then
into a quart freezer bag
and freeze. I take one bag
out when needed, and the
bacon thaws and cooks
up quickly. Deborah R.,
Belle Vernon, Pa.

Last drop
Dear Heloise: Our
grandson was visiting us
recently and was fixing
a glass of chocolate milk
for his son. The squeeze
bottle of chocolate syrup
was empty (he thought). I
told him to give the bottle
to me, poured some milk
in and gave it a good
shake. Another glass of
chocolate milkld Ruby
B., Delhi, La.

Stay put
Dear Heloise: You can
lay a paper towel, or half
of a paper towel, on the
counter and put a few
drops of water in the cen-
ter of the towel. This will
keep your cutting board
from slipping, and you
can throw it away when
the juice of what you are
cutting creeps under the
board. -Andrew D.,
Lexington, Ky.

Mama Mia,

Mama Mia
Based on the songs of Abba and set on a gorgeous Greek is-
land, "Mama Mia" has become one of those classic musicals
destined to play for years. With 22 Abba songs, three fathers
and a two-day pre-wedding romp, "Mama Mia" is a joyful musical
experience.
Beginning next Tuesday and continuing through July 17, you can
see it in all its Broadway finery in Tampa at the Carol Morsani Hall
at the Straz Center but at prices less than half of the $100-and-up
tickets to be found in the Big Apple these days..
Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday, 8 p.m. Friday, 2
and 8 p.m. Saturday and at 1 and 6:30 p.m. Sunday.
Buy tickets at the Straz box office noon-8 p.m. Monday-Saturday
and until 6 p.m. Sunday or by phone at 813-229-7827 or toll-free at
800-955-1045.
In Fort Myers, "Aladdin Jr." is being featured this month at the
Broadway Palm Children's Theatre. Tickets are $15 for lunch and
show. Visit www.broadwaypalm.com or call 239-278-4422 for tickets.
In between those venues, at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall
in Sarasota, enjoy all your favorite hits from the 60s performed by
Yesterdayze Band. It begins at 5 p.m. Friday. The best part is that
this concert is free thanks to a number of sponsors as well as the
county's one-cent tourist development tax. Consider that the Van-
Wezel holds just 1,720 people. It might be wise to get there early
given the number of Golden Oldies fans in the area. The famous
Taliesin-designed purple building is at 777 North Tamiami Trail,
Sarasota.

Eat fish and help area band get to Tennessee


BY BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
You've heard that fish is good for you. Ac-
cording to the American Heart Associa-
tion, it's packed with protein and vitamins,
plus Omega-3 fatty acids that do all kinds of good
things for your heart.
On Friday, eating fish will not only help you, but
it will also help a local band take the next step in
their career.
Local gospel-country band, Randy William &
The Works, has been invited to play at the 8th
Annual Music City Gospel Showcase, which
takes place Aug. 4 6 in Hendersonville, TN.
The showcase will be streamed live and shown
on the Angel II network during September.
The band members and their families are
understandably thrilled. But getting to Tennessee
with gas prices what they are, staying in hotels,
meals on the road and other expenses the costs
will really add up. So to fund the trip, the band
is hosting a complete fish meal and concert on
Friday.
For $8, you'll get dinner and entertainment.
Dinner of a mullet fillet, hush puppies, cole slaw
and baked beans will be served from 5 p.m. -
7 p.m., followed by a concert of old favorites and
original songs by the band, Randy William &The
Works.
"I'd say their music is more contemporary
country than traditional southern gospel," said


Amy Nichols, the wife of Randy William Nichols.
"It's not totally contemporary, and it's not
totally gospel," said Amy as she struggled to
define their music. "I guess it's really a whole new
genre!"
The band consists of leader Randy William
Nichols on keyboard and guitar; Charlie Harmon
on 12-string guitar; Cory Harmon on lead guitar,
acoustic and banjo; and Zach Edwards on drums
and saxophone.
Harmon and Edwards are both only 15, and
the band itself has only been together since
October of 2010.
Nichols grew up playing in his family's band.
He's been writing and playing music most of his
life, and has recorded his own CDs. Nichols is
also pastor of the Jesus Christ Believers Church
in Port Charlotte.
In concert, Nichols and Harmon play "four-
hand guitar," meaning they both play the same
guitar at the same time with both hands. This
and other high-energy playing really gets the
crowd going.
"Only 40 groups were selected to play in the
Music City Gospel Showcase, so we're really
excited," Amy added.
The showcase selects up-and-coming bands
to play and also features big names. Tommy
Cash, younger brother of Johnny Cash, and The
Hinsons, a well-known southern gospel group,
are both featured groups.

Asolo presents 'Marilyn: Forever Blonde'


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
ot on the heels of two one-man shows
featuring Hershey Felder ("Gershwin" and
"Maestro") Asolo Repertory Company
presents a one-woman show: "Marilyn: Forever
Blonde."


Opening Saturday on the Mertz stage where
it will play through July 10, "Marilyn" stars

in the film industry.
Written by Greg Thompson, the Asolo
production is directed by Stephanie Shine,
artistic director of Seattle Shakespeare

with Monroe's career.
The story was "written entirely from Mari-
lyn's own words."The setting is a photog-
rapher's studio, and the time is shortly before
her death, which continues to be a matter of
conjecture by fans and others as to whether
or not it was a suicide.

Head to the tropics for mango festival


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
One of the oldest Miami area attractions is
the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden.
Located on Old Cutler Road, about
30 minutes south of Miami in Coral Gables,
the stunning 89-acre site is said to be home to
the largest botanical garden in the continental
United States. It also is home to a 2-acre rain
forest area, which can save a trip to Brazil.The
remaining garden area features lakes, stands of
palms, bromeliads and ferns. There is a sunken
garden, 11 lakes, waterfall, bridges and plenty of
benches where visitors can stop to rest and enjoy
the views. Allow two hours to walk the grounds
although there also is a tram. During these hot days
of summer in Florida, the tram might prove the
better choice. There also is an air-conditioned visitor
center and gift shop. The afternoon of my visit, when
a tropical shower began, I escaped to the center for
an enjoyable stroll through the gift shop until the rain
had cooled off the gardens and I could head back
outside.
Although, just the other side of the state from
most of the Sun papers, the garden is in the trop-
ics and features plants that would prove challeng-
ing to grow even as afar south as Port Charlotte
because of the possibility of a freeze. Although
not common, it certainly happened this past
winter in Sarasota, Charlotte and Lee counties,
resulting in death or damage to species unable to
tolerate freezing temperatures.
Those different plants growing outside and not
in a greenhouse make Fairchild worth the drive
for me. Without having to fly to Brazil's rain forest
or some Caribbean island, I can pretend I am
there, walking among plants that likely would fail
in my Venice garden. I can also view such plants
as mangoes, which, if planted on my quarter-acre
lot, would soon shade my entire lot while drop-
ping way too much fruit on house and land.
Some plants are best left to the pros. Mangoes
do so well at Fairchild that it will host its 19th ann
International mango Festival July 9 and 10, from
9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Professional growers will


be there Friday for meetings and
conference ($100 per person) but
the weekend events are for the
rest of us and most are included
in the regular $25 admission. To
register for the mango brunch on
Sunday, call 305-663-8077.
Accredited by the American
Association of Museums, the
garden's primary mission is to
"save tropical plant diversity"
using botanical, horticultural
and conservation efforts. For the
average visitor it is a wonderful
oasis in the hectic Southeast-
Florida population corridor
known as Dade County.
Open daily from 9:30 a.m. to
4:30 p.m., the garden is closed
only on Dec. 25. Admission is
$25 for adults, $18 for seniors
65 and older and $12 for chil-
dren 6-17. The price includes
the narrated tram tour. On
some days, shuttle service and
guided walking tours also are
included. That depends on the
availability of docents who tend
to be more plentiful during the
winter tourist season.
Allow about three hours from
Charlotte County via Inter-
state 75 east to Highway 826.
Travel south on 826 to Sunset
Drive East. Travel east to the Sign for Fairch
roundabout. Take the first right garden that is
from the roundabout (Old Cutler airplane destii
Road).The garden entrance is
2 miles from the roundabout.
Watch for the sign which is large but sometimes
hidden in greenery The entrance and parking
are on the left. If the first lot is filled, drive past
the visitor center and down a hill to additional
parking. For information, visit
www.fairchildgarden.org or call 305-667-1651.

Vacation in the


Venice of your choice


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
ll those snowbirds can't be wrong. Venice
is a great place to visit. In the current
economy, it is an even better place for a
"stay-vay" or stay-at-home vacation.
With the money you save by not buying tickets
to some other historic place, famous beach or
art/entertainment center you get all three in
Venice: historic city, famous beaches and arts
and entertainment center. Is it any wonder why
the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers poured
millions into promoting the John Nolen-planned
city back in the 1920s?
Despite its nickname as Shark Tooth Capital of
the World and its miles of beaches, Venice also is
an important historic site and a cultural mecca.
Lodging options match up with interests. Those
who want to experience historic Venice should
book a room at one of the city's two B&Bs, Horse
and Chaise on Ponce De Leon Avenue or Banyan
House on Harbor Drive. Both date to the BLE era,
are on lie- isian.j ,~ c :. i c I .i :, ihi r li'si.:,r i bi.iild-


Dating to the post-war era is the -
Island Breeze Inn, 340 S.Tamiami
Trail and 60 years old this year.
To be directly on the beach,
the only choice for a stay of
less than a week is the Inn at
the Beach, 725 W.Venice Ave. at the Eplanaj:de
Venice Beach Villas are two blocks aw.vy a i 501
W. Venice Ave. Weekly stays can be booked at
the Quarterdeck on Tarpon Center Drive and
longer stays in rental condos along the beach.
Consult a Realtor. There also are several motels
just off the island and also near Interstate 75'S
193 exit at Jacaranda Boulevard, which gives you
a chance to experience the city's new controver-
sial roundabout at Venice Avenue. There also is
a Hampton Inn just north of the Hatchett Creek
Bridge on North Tamiami Trail.
Dotted with vest-pocket parks and handsome
Mediterranean Revival homes and business
buildings plus towering palms installed according
to the landscape plan of Nolen's friend Prentiss


Freiili
I,:,dyJv' Venicei ,
more than just another beacl town. The
island stretch of Venice Avenue was considered
the most beautiful boulevard in Florida back in
1926. Even today, a stroll down its median toward
the beach offers proof plus hints to the impor-
tance of the city's history.

HISTORICVENICE
Despite its relative youth (Venice will celebrate
its 85th anniversary next year), nine buildings and
Nolen's plan for the city are on the National Reg-
ister. Few city plans have qualified for that listing,
which was granted after Register representatives
came to tour the city. They liked what they found
as much as today's returning snowbirds. Had they
city itself made the list, it would have joined only
Washington D.C. and Savannah as listed cities.
Listing the master plan by Nolen is the next best
thing. The listing was achieved after years of work
by retired city archivist Dorothy Korwek, who also
was responsible for having the Triangle Inn saved
and moved to its present location at 351 Nassau
St., at the home of the Venice Archives and Area
Historical Collection.
Within the inn, which is open Monday, Tuesday
and Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. you
can learn about the man who made the most
money of all in the early development of Venice
- orthopedic surgeon Dr. Fred Albee who
purchased 1,428 acres of land from the sons of
Bertha Honore Palmer for $185,000 and sold it
nine weeks later to the BLE for $1,012,877.51.
Considering what inflation has done to the dollar,
he was as well paid then as some sports figures
are today. Learn more about Albee in a new inter-
active display at the inn. Stand beneath the lucite
umbrella to hear living history recordings about
the city and its people. A copy of the Nolen plan
is on display in the hallway. The city's archivist

director of

On the same block as the Triangle Inn are the
library, the community center and the Venice Art
Center. Between those three places, on any given
day, you can find a lecture on movies or history, a
bridge game or dance session, see an art show
or enjoy afternoon tea.
In Blalock Park, learn the names of area trees
in the arboretum or rest awhile in the gazebo.
Shop in both historic and newer buildings
along Tarpon, Venice and Miami avenue. Read
the National Register plaques as you find them
and learn still more about this city's history as
one of but three new Nolen-planned communi-
ties in the state. The other two are Belleaire and
Clewiston.
Check out photos and uniforms of cadets at
the Venice Center Mall, former dormitory for the
Kentucky Military Institute which wintered in Ven-
ice from 1932-1970. Discovering Venice history is
more than just a walk in the park. Sometimes, it
is a day at the beach, which doubles as a haven
for fossil hunters who uncover items said to be
millions of years old.
Back in the 1920s, people went to the beach
well-covered in swim suits made of wool. They
ate turtle meat and caught tarpon for recreation.
A glossy magazine called The Venice News listed
more than 60 fun things to do in Venice, without
even mentioning parasailing or scuba diving.
If you must stay at the beach, stay at the Inn at
the Beach, on West Venice Avenue, opposite the
Esplanade from the city's main beach. Venice has
plenty of other motels and lodging options on and
off "the island," with and without pools and other

amenities. Check with the Chamber of Commerce
for suggestions.

BEACHES/PARKS
For shark teeth, shelling, sand and sunshine,
grab your towels, water bottle, beach chairs,
Florida snow shovels and sunscreen. Then pick
your beach. Venice beaches do not have the
white sugar sand of Siesta Beach, which was
recently named Best Beach in America by Dr.
Beach, but, Venice has miles of beaches and
sites to suit most every taste. If you want to play
volleyball and prefer a Coney Island feel, with
nearby snackbar and bathrooms, head down
Venice Avenue to the main public beach. Park
on either side of the beach's famous hyperbolic
paraboloid (the building with the roof that looks
like a sail on its side). Walkways lead over the
seagrass-covered dunes to the beach. The volley-
ball net is on the south side of the wing-shaped
structure that replaced the old 1930s era beach
casino in 1964.
When you want some shade or the chance to

chat with some interesting folks, head to the "sail."
For a chance to see Flipper and friends, head
north on the Esplanade and left on Tarpon Center
Drive to get to Humphris Park at the South Jetty.
Several bottle-nosed dolphins like to frolic about
just off the jetties, perhaps drawn by the bait of
the fishermen along the rocks there. If the tide
is out, there is some sand but there are mostly
rocks, picnic tables, park benches, restroom and
shower facilities and a concession stand. Most
people come here to fish from the jetty or simply
to sit on a bench and watch the boats go in and
out of the jetties. The current is too strong for
swimming except to the south, away from the
jetties.
If you want more beach and a sheltered
walkway with shaded benches for a picnic, head
to Service Club Park on Harbor Dive, just past
Airport Avenue. There is a volleyball net in the
park and several covered picnic spots along the
wooden walkway to the beach.This is one of
the area's prime scrub jay spots if you are a bird
watcher.
For the newest facilities, paved walkways, a


fenced alligator lake and the most picnic facilities
the new Maxine Barrit Park is the place and even
allows dogs on leashes. Immediately south is the
Brohard Paw Park where dogs must be under
control of their owners but not necessarily on
leashes. Plastic bag dispensers are available to
make it easy for pet owners to clean up after their
pets.
These two pet-friendly areas are immediately
south of the Venice Fishing Pier where you might
reel in a big one. Pets are only allowed during
daylight hours.You might even catch a shark
there, which is why most natives do no usually
swim at the pier. Sharky's at the Pier offers lunch,
dinner, drinks and great sundown views.
Should you want to parasail along the coast,
head to the marina at Venice's other waterview
restaurant, the Crow's Nest on Tarpon Center
Drive near the South Jetty. Adventure Parasail of-
fers boat rides and parasail rides along the shore.
South of the Paw Park is a huge parking area
and the none-pet part of Brohard Park, To the
east is Lake Venice Golf Club, which offers 27
holes of golf. In the pro shop you can buy or rent
whatever you need.
Continuing south past the golf course is one
of Southwest Florida's most scenic beach areas
- Caspersen Beach. In May an Italian magazine
did a fashion shoot at Caspersen because of the
area's unspoiled look.
This is one of the best beaches for shark teeth
hunting. But when all else fails, head to the shell
and souvenir shops on Venice Avenue. To find the
largest teeth, get out your scuba gear and head
offshore to the nearest sandbar.
There is a brief no-parking area from the
Brohard Park lot to the first Caspersen lot, which
includes handicap parking at the north end of a
raised wooden walkway that parallels the beach
above the sea oats and dune area. Just past that
is a large parking area on the east side of the
road wand central access to the beach. There are
restrooms off this lot.

Past this lot to the south is
another parking area but it is cur-
rently mostly a work in progress as new restroom
facilities are built but there is still beach access
to the most private beach in the area and, to the
east, lots of additional parking, a canoe launch
site and access to the Venetian Waterway Trail
Park, which meanders along the Intracoastal Wa-
terway to the Hatchett Creek Bridge at the north
end of the island known part of Venice and, on
the other side of the waterway, the Historic Venice
Railroad Depot, one of the nine Venice buildings
listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

THERE'S AN ART
TO TODAY'S VENICE
Just as the Venice Art Center grew out of
its old shoebox building into its wonderful new
home at 390 S. Nokomis Ave., Venice (Little)
Theatre moved from its old airport building to new
quarters in the former gymnasium of the KMI. At
last, in the 1970s, the theater was able to build
a proper stagehouse and within a few years, to
finally employ its first paid artistic director.
By 2008, when the theater was selected to
host its first International Theatre Festival and
visitors from 12 countries in 2010, it was time to
drop the "Little" from its walls.
Now 60 years old, the theater's paid staff has
grown to 27. Its educational department offers
year-round classes in acting, singing, dancing
and nearly every other aspect of theater. Venice
Theatre was the third community theater in the
country to offer a Theatre Technical Apprentice
Program certified by the Florida Dept. of Educa-
tion and recognized by the U.S. Dept. of Labor.
Students work one-on-one with theater profes-
sionals to hone their skills while earning college
credit for course work that supplements their

1,500-apprenticeship hours at the theater. Gradu-
ates have the skills and experience to head to
Broadway as journeymen if that is their goal.
Awards have piled up for actors, directors,
costume designer Nick Hartman, set designers
and, following the success of its first international
festival, Venice Theatre became the first theater
ever to be selected to host the event again in
June, 2014. Directing all this activity for the past
15 years is Murray Chase who also is a board
member of the American Association of
Community Theatres.
Venice Theatre is considered the most impor-
tant community theater, per capital, of 10,000
community theaters in the U.S. With a budget of
$2.5 million for the coming year and some 1,500
volunteers, the theater has something to offer
nearly every day throughout the year. Currently
in rehearsal is the summer stock production of
"Jesus Christ Superstar," which opens on the
main stage July 28. Also appearing this month,
in VT's Pinkerton Theatre, is "Drag Queen Bingo"
Thursday Saturday, and Jimmy Jay and the Jay
Men on July 16.

The healing sound of the


BY SHARE DERRICKSON
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Dr. Ken Feder, a Charlotte County chiropractor,
knows that music, as well as medicine, heals.
When he is not practicing modern medicine too,
he is enjoying his down time with what he feels is his best
medicine singing Doo Wop music with his singing mates
known as The Goldtones.
"We do '50s and '60s Doo Wop. All the fellows in the
group are all from the Northeast New York and New
Jersey and this is what we grew up with," he said. "It works
well with the age group down here."
Feder started the group after feeling he needed music
back in his life. "When I was in high school, I was in a
group called The Corduroys, and I sang with then and
we tried to cut a record which didn't happen, but we were
pretty popular," the New Yorker City native said. "I sang in a
few groups and we performed all over the place."
"Then, I stopped for a while and went to college and
post graduate school and moved to Atlanta and while in
Atlanta, I missed the music and I put out ads in the paper
and we formed a group that did not only Doo Wop but
Motown. It was a mixed group that appealed to many and
we even were the group that opened the Martin Luther
King Center," he said.
Years later, Feder decided to move to Florida and prac-
tice his healing here. "I have been here about 10 years and
a couple of years ago, I realized I needed to get back into
music and tried to form a few groups, but we didn't really
stay together."
"The group we have now, The Goldtones, has been
together about six months and we are getting really busy."
While they may be new, the group's music background
and sound has them becoming a draw for those that love
the fun music of Doo Wop.
"We are all involved with music," he said of his group.
"One guy, Ed Dianna, is the Cantor for the San Antonio


Church and he is very talented and the others, Joe Russo,
John Gualberto, and J.R. Reinhoch, who fills in from time
to time, are all in music and are fantastic to sing with."
"Right now, John Gualberto had to go north for a while
so is filling in. We have five members but four are presently
performing."
And besides wanting to entertain the audience, The
Goldtones is committed to helping their local community
"We want to do some charity work and give back. There
are so many people here that have been through so much,
lost so much, gone through storms, so we want to help
them and work with various churches and organizations.
We want to help those who have been hurt."
"This is not just about the money it is about the music
and the harmonies and getting people up and dancing and
enjoying life. We interact with the audience and get them
up and moving."
He said one of the groups strengths is they try to sound
as much like the original music as possible. "We have the
harmonies down and this brings back the nice memories
that they had nicer times when we could remember all
the fun in our lives. We in the group all grew up in the '50s
and '60s so we all have an emotional connection to the
music that appeals to so many others."
For Feder, the music is important to him for healing."I see
people in a lot of pain in many ways and this is a good outlet
for me. This helps me with the stress of my daily job of seeing
so many people who are unhappy My job has a lot of stress
and it can be fatiguing.This is my release and it helps to heal
me, and I know music helps heal the body and the soul."
The Goldtones invite the public out to hear the sounds of
yesterday at Fisherman's Village in Punta Gorda from
5 p.m. 9 p.m. Sunday. "Come dance and have a good time."

E/N/C/V swwJuly6-12, 2011


BY MICHAEL O'SULLIVAN
THE WASHINGTON POST
The tale of a broke, unemployed and under-
educated nebbish who transforms himself
into a prince of a guy who finds his princess
- with the help of a scooter-riding fairy godmother
and a cache of hip, vintage threads "Larry
Crowne" is a Cinderfella story for tough times. It's
a light and breezy, recession-themed romantic
comedy; "Up in the Air" without all the angst and
introspection.
Tom Hanks (who also directed) plays the title
character, a squeaky-clean divorced man who's
fired from his job as a salesman at a big-box
store. (In this economy, someone's got to go, and
Larry doesn't have a college degree.)
Without so much as pausing to feel sorry for
himself, Larry dumps his house he was under-
water on the mortgage anyway switches from
a gas-guzzling SUV to a more sensible, if sexier,
second-hand scooter, takes a part-time job as a
short order cook and enrolls in college.
His first course? A speech class called "The
Art of Informal Remarks."Talk about unmarket-
able. At least the teacher played by an unhappily
married, and almost perpetually scowling, Julia
Roberts is hot.
Key words here: "unhappily married" and "hot."
This is, after all, a romantic comedy.You can see
what's coming, even if Larry can't. Hanks plays his
character with a slightly dazed, deer-in-the-head-
lights grin. His outlook is an even more upbeat
variant of Alfred E. Neuman's "What, me worry?"
Larry's own naive catchphrase "spectacular,"
pronounced "speck-tack-a-ler" is telling.
As for Roberts' scowling, the actress seems to
have Botoxed her famous smile into submission
for the first two-thirds of the film. Making Larry,
and the audience, wait an hour before we see
the whites of her teeth is a major miscalcula-
tion. When she and Larry finally kiss, it's hard
to see why anyone would want to. But the script
(co-written by Hanks and Nia "My Big Fat Greek
Wedding" Vardalos) demands it.
To compensate for the foolishness of taking a
class in public speaking, the script also has Larry
sign up for Introductory Economics, taught by an
amusingly unhinged George Takei of "Star Trek"
fame.
It's in that econ class that Larry meets the
free-spirited Talia (a delightful Gugu Mbatha-Raw).
Like Larry, she's a scooter rider, and introduces
him to her circle of scooter-aficionado college
pals. Before you can say "bibbidi-bobbidi-boo,"

AP PHOTO
In this film publicity image released by
Universal Pictures, Julia Roberts, left, and
Tom Hanks are shown in a scene from "Larry
Crowne."

Talia has given Larry a magical makeover,
complete with new hair, new glasses, new 'tude
and stylin' clothes. Watching Hanks'transforma-
tion from Larry Crowne to "Lance Corona" Talia's
nickname for his new persona is the film's chief
pleasure.
But as romantic comedies go, "Larry Crowne" is
neither swooningly romantic nor howlingly funny.
The film's biggest laugh comes when Roberts'
character asks one of her students, snarkily, "Are
you clairvoyant?" and he answers, "No, Steve Dibi-
asi." All that's missing is the rimshot.
The film is comfortably familiar. Like the scooter
gang that's central to the film's plot and Larry's
metamorphosis "Larry Crowne" putters down
the middle of the road with its helmet strapped on
tight. It's a safe, non-risk-taking ride. It gets you
where it wants you to go, but with a minimum of
oomph.
PG-13. Contains some crude language. 99
minutes.

Artist paints slices of life


BY RUTH SPIES
SUN CORRESPONDENT
recently, I had an opportunity to visit with
well known Punta Gorda artist and art
instructor Kathy Bostwick. While water-
color is her chosen medium, she also works in
photography and digital design.
Watercolor is a medium that uses paints
made of pigments suspended in water or a water
soluble liquid. Usually, watercolor paintings are
made on paper, but a variety of other materials
also can be used, including bark paper, plastics,
leather, fabric and canvas. The technique is very
old, and some say it dates back to the cave paint-
ings of the Paleolithic era.
Most often, watercolors are transparent, allow-
ing light to reflect from the surface of the paper,
which gives the painting a luminous effect.
An only child, Bostwick found her artistic
calling at an early age, and eventually studied oil
painting, pen& ink, as well as photography at the
William E. Gebhardt School of Commercial Art in
Cincinnati. After graduation she studied in Rome,
Florence, Pisa and Siena, Italy.
Upon returning to the U.S., Bostwick taught
photography and worked for several studios in
the Cincinnati area. Eventually, she married, had
a son and elected to put her love of painting on
the back burner for family responsibilities.
Bostwick and her family moved to Charlotte
County in the early 1980s.
In 1989, after years of pursuing her interests
in Metaphysics and writing several books on the
subject together with author Robert D. Gidel,
Bostwick again answered the call of her artistic
leanings and learned to paint with watercolors.
In 1990, she began teaching watercolor for the
Charlotte County School System, and in 1991


she started teaching
classes for the Char-
lotte County Art Guild.
In 2009, Bostwick
served as President
of the Florida Water-
color Society.
Her work has
been featured in
"Florida Wildlife
Magazine" and she
has taken awards in
many exhibitions in
southwest Florida. In
recent years Kathy
has added digital
art, glass,and silver
jewelry to her creative
repertoire.
Currently, she is

working on a series of
Dali-inspired mindscapes in watercolor.
Over time, artists tend to develop a "personal
style" in their work. When I asked Bostwick about
her personal style, she said "My paintings do not
seek to portray exacting realities, but I do try to
portray "a slice of everyday life" in my work. Art
is non-threatening, and people learn to accept by
observation. Artists tell us what is important and
of value in everyday life.
"In my paintings I seek to engage the viewer
in a frozen moment of time and perception; a
thought-provoking link between observer and
artist."
Bostwick most admires artist Salvador Dali,
and says his works show his ability to reinvent
reality and give it transparency His influence is
apparent in many of her works.


Bostwick has taught classes at the Visual Art
Center for 20 years, and says she stills loves
doing it.
"My students inspire me. They are not afraid to
put themselves or their workout there for critique.
Their creativity feeds my spirit and fosters a
synergy in my classes that benefits everyone. I
love the sense of community our classes have
developed over the years."
I asked Bostwick if she would like to offer ad-
vice to others who'd like to learn to paint, andshe
said, "Eliminate 'I can't' and 'I don't' from your
vocabulary and, instead, say 'I eventually will' and
'I can if I want to.'" The more you limit yourself,the
less capable you are.
"I was not a natural artist, but I had the incen-
tive and worked hard to learn my craft.
"Pay attention to everything around you, and

meditate before you begin creating your art.
Meditation before creating is an important part of
the process, as it helps expand your mind.
"Don't let financial considerations stop you
from pursuing your art. If you can't afford the
materials, work with what you can afford.
Bostwick is a founding member of ArtiZ, a
group of working artists living in Punta Gorda.
Visit the group's website at www.artizonline.com.
Her paintings are on exhibit at Creations
Gallery, 210 Taylor St., Punta Gorda. Creations
is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5
p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.,and until
8 p.m. during Third Thursday Gallery Walk.
Be sure to stop by and view Bostwick's wa-
tercolor paintings and her other works. For more
