applicants include Lorraine M.
Vervoordt and stage and film
crew member Christopher
McVicker, both of~renice, and
Robert Halfhill, public works
director for Charlotte County.
Woodley, the former city en-
gineer who has twice served as
acting city manager, received a
vote of confidence after the No-
vember 2)1() election in which
three new council members
were elected. Council voted to
keep Woodley in place during a
trial period, but later in a split


vote decided to carry on with an
executive search.
Mayor John Holic stood
behind Woodley, saying he'd be
satisfied with her as acting city
manager until his term expires in
two years. Holic said he doesn't
plan to run for a second term.
Ten of the Venice city man-
ager candidates have also
applied for the Sarasota County
administrator position, includ-
ing Vervoordt. Forty-five people
applied for the county position,
which became vacant when Jim


Ley parted ways with county
commissioners in May. The
deadline for the county admin-
istrator applications was Oct. 21
but that search is likely to con-
clude sooner than Venice's.
The Mercer Group, conduct-
ing the county search, will cull
its candidate list down to 15 on
Nov. 2. Council has yet to deter-
mine a timeline for completing
its search. The Venice application
deadline was Oct. 1, but Bob

Two candidates running for
Seat No. 1 on Venice City Coun-
cil may have financial issues,
according to campaign finan-
cial statements and a review of
Sarasota County public records.
John Patten was sued by
Acceptance LLC for not pay-
ing a $11,281.64 credit card
that Patten said he used for
personal expenses when his
business was failing. A default
was entered in March 2()(6.
Patten lists three more


another person) in 2()(5 for
Writing disparaging remarks on
his website about Hunt after
Hunt left Venice and was seek-
ing employment elsewhere.
In 2()(7, Patten was found in
civil contempt by circuit court
Judge Robert Bennett for failing
to produce documents relevant
to the suit. Patten blamed it on
an oversight by his attorney and
fired him, according to court
records. The attorney was later
disbarred. The court ordered
Patten to pay $2,213 to the
plaintiff's attorney.
In 2()(9 Patten filed a motion


to dismiss the suit for failure
to prosecute. The court hasn't
acted on that motion and the
case remains open.
Bud Lefebvre didn't list any
creditors on his campaign
financial statement.
A review of county records
shows a foreclosure suit was
filed against Lefebvre by Citi-
bank in 2()(9, based on a 2()(7
loan for $3()8,788 on Lefebvre's
Bellagio residence. The case
was dismissed in 2)1() without
prejudice after Citibank failed

Back in 2()(5, the
Peace River/Manasota
Regionall~ater Supply
Authority was looking to
enhance the region's wa-
ter transmission system.
It hoped to construct an
integrated loop pipeline
system that would con-
nect area water systems
and transmit potable
water throughout the
authority's four-county
service area. Not un-
like an electrical grid, if
one se umenwere to 'go

provide water to the af-
fected area's customers.
The authority, a
regional governmental
agency that supplies
potable water to Char-
lotte, DeSoto, Manatee
and Sarasota counties
and the city of North
otc (he onl )npolem-
construction of about
a dozen interconnects
to provide increased
reliability and the ability
to share water resources
throughout the region'
wh ever it is needed.
Te Pase 1A


Port began in September.
Meanwhile, the au-
thority awarded Garney
Construction of Kissim-
mee, near Orlando, an
$18.4 million contract
to construct Phase 3A
of the pipeline system,
including installation
of approximately nine
miles of 48-inch pipeline
connecting the T. Mabry
Carlton Jr. 1Vater Treat-
ment Plant in Venice to a
24-inch Sarasota County
pipeline along Cow Pen
Slough, and construc-
tion of a new high-
service regional pump


station and 5-million-
gallon water storage tank
at the Carlton plant.
Construction of this
interconnect began
in summer 2)1() and
was completed in July.
Total cost of the project
was $32 million. It was
funded by the Southwest
Floridal~ater Manage-
ment District ($13.9 mil-
lion) and the authority
and Sarasota County
($18.1 million).
Since July, the pipe-
line has helped trans-
mit up to 13 million
gallons of water that


the authority provides
Sarasota County per day.
"It strengthens our wa-
ter transmission system
significantly by provid-
ing us extra capacity out
of the Carlton, into our
system, and especially
the eastern areas of the
county," county Environ-
mental Utilities Ex-
ecutive Director Theresa
Connor said.


Local and state of-
ficials, the authority
and others will gather
to dedicate the Phase
3A interconnect at
11 a.m. Wednesday at
the Carltonl~ater Treat-
ment Plant, 1255 Mabry
Carlton Parkway, Venice.
The public is invited to
attend.

SUN NEWSPAPERS 3A


By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR

Residents of the Laurel
Road east of Interstate
75 and businesses on
Knights Trail Road hop-
ing to have "Venice"
in their mailing ad-
dress have been turned
down by the U.S. Postal
Service.


CITY NOTES
COMPILED BY
NEws EDITOR GREG GILES

Sewage spill
in Venice

City utilities crews
were called to the corner
of Bahama Street and
Indian Avenue Monday
around 2:40 p.m. when a
gravity sewer main began
to discharge raw sewage
due to grease blocking
the pipe.
About 300 gallons of
sewage went into a storm
drain that connects to
the Intracoastal Water-
way near Venice High
School. The blockage was
cleared and samples of
water were taken from
the ICW. The surround-
ing area was disinfected.
Grease should never be
disposed of down a sink
drain or other pipes lead-
ing to the sewage system.
Always throw grease in
the garbage. Restaurants
should have grease traps
cleaned frequently.


A few months ago
MayOr John Holic wrote
to the district manager of
the Suncoast District for
the U.S. Postal Service
requesting a Venice ZIP
code for the area.
Postal District Man-
ager David Patterson
denied the request.
He said the change for
those residents, which


would require the
mailing addresses to
change from Nokomis
to Venice, would "create
inefficiencies."
"The postal service
attempts to recognize
county or municipal
boundaries ... but can-
not adjust these bound-
aries (for) every annexa-
tion of unincorporated



affected will receive a
notice about three days
before the work starts in
their neighborhood.
Those areas are: Castile
Avenue at Armada and
Menendez avenues;
Lisbon Street at Menen-
dez Avenue and Valencia
Road; South Harbor
Drive and Alhambra
Road; the north ends
of Nassau Street and
Nokomis Avenue; St.
Augustine Avenue; Santa
Maria Avenue; Nokomis
Avenue and Calle Cen-
tral; Parkside Drive and
Narvaezi Street; Serata
Street at San Marco Drive
and Coral Street; Savrano
Road and Nokomis Ave-
nue; and Firenze Avenue
and The Rialto.
For more informa-
tion, contact the Utili-
ties Department at 941-
480-3333, ext. 223.

LDR rewrite
under way
The city planning


territory, nor based solely
on customer preference,"
Patterson said.
At a minimum, he
said, the change would
require the "relocation
of carriers, changes and
transportation schedules,
revisions to directories,
changes to computer
software, mail forward-
ing for customers whose



commission held a
workshop Tuesday on
the land development
regulations rewrite.
LDRs implement direc-
tives laid out in the
comprehensive plan
adopted by the city
in October 2010. The
comp plan reduced the
maximum height of
buildings and limited
density in many areas of
the city.
Marty Black, the for-
mer city manager who is
now with Kimley-Horn
and Associates, is the
lead consultant on the
project.
New to the LDR's are
graphics to assist the
layman in understand-
ing the city's land-use
rules and sample time-
lines that indicate the
duration of city review
for certain land use
applications.
The planning commis-
sion will also consider
an administrative ap-
peal process that Black


addresses changes and
significant administrative
costs."
Patterson said it
would not be fiscally
responsible to incur
such costs, given the
declining revenue
and mail volume the
post office is currently
experiencing.
On Tuesday, Holic said



said could help avoid
litigation.

Parking lawsuit
dismissed
A lawsuit filed against
the city by a restaurant
owner upset with the
lack of patron parking
has been dismissed.
Althea's Restaurant
owner Greg Silva sued
the city for $4,500 in lost
income as a result of the
alleged failure of the city
to enforce its parking
statutes.
A city parking lot
exists right next to the
restaurant, but Silva has
complained for years
about violations, citing
those who stay too long
or simply drive around
the block after the time
limit and re-park in the
same spot or nearby.
The city took nu-
merous steps to free
up parking, includ-
ing more lot checks by
the police department


he planned to appeal the
decision.
His argument: If they
can create a North
Venice designation, as
happened for those in
the Venetian Golf & River
Club and Willow Chase,
then how difficult can it
be?

Email: ggiles@venicegondolier.com


and supporting Venice
MainStreet's voluntary
program to encour-
age employees to park
elsewhere.
City Attorney Bob
Anderson, in a motion,
argued enforcement of
parking regulations is a
discretionary function
of local government
and protected under
sovereign immunity
laws.
Judge David Denkin
agreed, dismissing the
suit with prejudice on
Oct. 10, which means
the suit cannot be
refiled.

Utilities project
begins Tuesday
The city ofVenice
utilities department will
begin a replacement
valve project on the
island Tuesday, Nov. 8.
About 14 new valves will
be installed in the water
distribution system. The
project, which will help
the system to be more
reliable and efficient, is
expected to be complete
by Jan. 8.
Several residences and
business properties will
experience a water out-

As a precautionary mea-
sure, those affected by
the project should bring
their water to a hard boil
for three minutes before
using it for drinking or
cooking for 72 hours
after their water service
is restored, or use bottled
water,

crucify anyone," Trigueiro
Said at Wednesday's trust-
ees meeting.
Information that is pub-
lic should be accessible
with just a few clicks of
the mouse on the Inter-
net, he said.
Trigueiro brought a copy
of Hafner's compensation
package to the meeting,
noting that while he's not
trying to get rid of Hafner
- he likes the college pres-
ident a buyout would
cost nearly $2 million.
"I am not trying to
terminate you," Trigueiro
said to Hafner, making that
clear to audience mem-
bers and to the media.
Hafner's annual salary
is based on an average of
pay for presidents of state
colleges awarding bach-
elor's degrees,
After the meeting,
Hafner said the board is


asking a lot of relevant
questions.
"We have always been a
transparent organization,"
he said.
Posting the agenda
package on the SCF
website is an easy thing
to do and allows everyone
to know what's going on,
Hafner said.
College salaries are
already posted on the
website, he said, and have
been "for a while."
Carlos Beruff, chair of
the board of trustees, said
he supports transpar-
ency in SCF operations,
noting the documents
referred to by Trigueiro
are all public record.
But he urged trustees to
continue their work on
three committees formed
this month to study the
budget, capital projects,
and compensation and


staffing. The issues should
be addressed in a formal,
collaborative way, with
recommendations being
brought back to the full
board in January, rather
than being tackled piece-
meal, Beruff said.
Some of the push for
more transparency has
resulted in the full agenda
being posted to the SCF
website prior to the meet-
ing, Trigueiro said. Agenda
packages were posted to
the web previously, but
only accessible to trustees,
who needed a password.
SCF's annual financial
statements have also been
added to the website, he
added.
Trustee Jennifer Saslaw
addressed concerns
among some faculty
members that the board
may be trying to find a
way to rescind this year's


3 percent raise for faculty,
as well as the 8 percent tu-
ition hike. She pointed to
the superior performance
of SCF grads after they
move on.
"We have an amazing
faculty here. The proof is
in the pudding," Saslaw
said. "To go back and
rescind a raise given to
the faculty in good faith
would be devastating."
Saslaw also said she did


not think the 8 percent
tuition hike would have a
huge impact on students.
Trigueiro agreed.
"I am not going to pro-
pose that the raise be tak-
en away," he said. "That's
not going to happen."
Neither would he
propose taking away the
tuition hike, he said.
SCF has campuses in
Bradenton, South Venice
and Lakewood Ranch.

There should be no
secrets at State College
of Florida, says Craig A.
Trigueiro, a recent ap-
pointee to the SCF Board
of Trustees.
That includes post-
ing the compensation
package for President
Lars Hafner on the college
website, along with the
salaries but not the
names of all staff and
faculty members making
more than $1()(,()()( a year,
Trigueiro said.
Hafner's annual com-
pensation package,
totaling $374,201.47, was
recently extended five
years. His base salary,
$284, 166.45, has increased
35 percent, from $210,00
when he was hired in 2008.

Tim Yacobelli, hus-
band Larry and their
2-year-old son Joseph,
who came to Venice
from Thailand just a few
months ago, face the
monumental challenge
of making their new
business a success to
raise funds for their son,
who has been diagnosed
with profound deafness.
Doctors at All Chil-
dren's Hospital in St.
Petersburg confirmed
that Joseph is 80 percent
deaf and arranged for
cochlear implant surgery.
"\Ve wanted to help pay
for the implant, raising
funds by opening the
business as Medicare only
pays for one implant and
he needs two," said Larry.
So they started Kick
Ass Bags & Boutique at
145 North Tamiami Trail,
Osprey.
Before the surgery their
son had to wear hear-
ing aids for at least three
months. Unfortunately,

the hearing aids did not

received his first cochlear

Chiropractors have long understood
that sitting places more stress on the lower
back than standing, even though many
find sitting to be more comfortable. Now,
research goes one step further to say that
sitting up straight is not the best posture
for sitting. While many people consider a
90-degree body-thigh sitting posture to be
correct, a 135-degree body-thigh sitting


posture places less stress on the back and
spine. This conclusion was reached after
analyzing the spines of subjects who
assumed various sitting postures. A new
form of magnetic resonance imaging
(MRI) helped researchers see the impact
of these various postures on the spine. If
you sit for long periods and experience
lower-back pain, have the chiropractor
analyze your sitting posture.

SUN NEWSPAPERS


When the Sarasota County
school system asked for
an extension of a special
schools tax last year, we supported it,
but not without reservations.
One over-arching concern was ac-
countability. We wondered if taxpay-
ers really were getting enough bang
for their bucks, and felt a little lost in
the barrage of statistics and figures
that were being tossed around -
for and against. We certainly would
have felt much more confident if an
independent group had analyzed
district operations and crunched the
numbers.
That level of review will take place
in the next four months, thanks to a
group called Citizens for Academic


Success in Education. CASE recently
brought the idea of an independent
"effectiveness and efficiency audit" to
the school board, which signed off on
the plan. Facing a potential deficit of
more than $20 million in the coming
year, the board and the administra-
tion were wise to embrace an outside
perspective.
CASE is raising $124,000 to hire a
national management consulting firm,
MGT of America, to conduct the audit.
MGT has a "proven track record,"
said CASE founder Scott Pinkerton of
Venice. One member of the MGT staff,
Robert Schiller, has been state schools
superintendent in Michigan and Il-
linois. The consultants will conduct an
in- depth, department-by- department


study, and will look above and beyond
the "low-hanging fruit" that already
has been picked by Sarasota district
professionals.
The longer view is also welcome.
As Schiller told the school board last
month, "We're trying to help you
rethink how you approach your priori-
ties and particularly in how you're
facing particularly draconian budget
shortfalls in the near future,"
The fresh look from an outside
party- one that doesn't seem to have
a hidden agenda is critical. Priori-
ties will have to change as the school
system tries to maintain high stan-
dards while dealing with the reality of
declining dollars. Difficult choices will
have to be made; the school board,


administration, teachers, parents and
taxpayers should all benefit from an
independent analysis of all programs.
We're confident the CASE members
have their hearts and their heads in
the right place, which will be impor-
tant for building consensus.
"When you talk about the impor-
tance of the schools in our future,
Sarasota County gets it," Pinkerton
said.
"WTe want to make sure that we're
dealing with facts when they have
to make very difficult decisions next
year. We're all focused on the same
thing, which is how do we get the
best education for our individual
students."
Exactly. We think this can only help.


people purchase stuff over

I heard Karen ask a patron
if they rent or own; she just
served them equally. When
Debbie asked Karen at Ciao
Bella's what time was best for
her hair appointment, I did
not hear Karen ask if we rent
or not. I think she said Thurs-
day but I don't know they
got into that salon talk that
loses my attention.
My point is whether I rent
or own a home in our fair city
should not determine how
much I pay to get connected
to the water supply. What I
have noticed is Venice is a very
proud town and let me tell you
from experience, you are darn
proud of your water.
I am thinking of some ways
to get my answers. Perhaps
start a blog? No, the Internet is
proving to be less credible all
the time. Maybe I will speak
out at a city council meeting?
No, those folks have way more
important issues than that; go
see for yourself if you don't be-
lieve me. I know, I will just ask
the mayor next time I see him;
the guy is everywhere.
In the end, even it is not true
- which I believe it is, as Deb
was asked if she was a renter
or homeowner and all have to
pay $350 to have water I say
again, you are darn proud of
the antiquated system.
So the Halloween Parade and
candy hand-out on West Ven-
ice Avenue was simply fantas-
tic. The children of our world
were just adorable and as
polite as ever. Parents are do-
ing a fantastic job as evidenced
by the children.
Sue over at Jackson's, also
known as corned-beef heaven
in my house, invited the Gon-
dolier to share in this wonder-
ful event, and we must say
thank-you for the afternoon.
Sue and staff know how to treat
guests.
The Golden Broom award
was also revived this year.
Incredible costumed people
came through the Gondolier
doors all afternoon. Thanks to
all, especially Dr. Acker and his
crew.
Finally, the 24th annual
Downtown Venice Art Fest is
this weekend. A healthy mix-
ture of art, entertainment and
friends is in store for you. All
you have to do is go enjoy. The
event is 10 a.m.-5 p.m. both
days and I am told it's a great
way to spend a weekend.

Tin Srnolarick is publisher of
the Gondolier.


One never really knows the
motivation of a politician.
That's certainly reason enough
to keep your guard up when
entering into a discussion with
a candidate.
Last week we had the
pleasure of interviewing most
of the candidates here at the
shop. I have to say thanks to
those who gave us the hour;
I am a better American for
meeting each of you. We had
some good dialogue, asked
some tough questions and
were not disappointed with the
spirit of the candidates.
Kit McKeon came by and
seemed confident in his re-
election bid. We did, however,
remind him to vote. Seriously,
Kit gave us an hour when
he really did not need to
and for that our staff is most
appreciative.
The rest was printed last
week and we endorsed Dave
Sherman. Personally, I let my
guard down the most with
Mr. Sherman. Mr. Sherman's
answers and genuine sincerity
about working with the entire
team and just about anyone
who loves Venice were both
impressive and endearing.
While you can't predict an
election, four candidates vying
for one slot makes an interest-
ing election, and anything can
happen. It goes without aig
that every vote counts in every
election; in a four-way race
your vote may just be the one
that decides it. Pay attention
out there.
Can anyone tell me the
reason behind charging a
renter more for a water service
deposit than a homeowner in
the city of Venice? I am told
that one who rents has to pay
an awful lot more than a new
homeowner to get the water
turned on. I heard through the
grapevine that the feeling is
renters are more likely to leave
town and not pay the bill. Well
now, besides the borderline
discrimination, someone may
want to look into that issue.
Is that really the case, and
necessary?
I have watched several


solve some of our economic
problems.
What right? The pier area
at the beach I'm trying to
figure out why the restaurant
is there and making that whole
thing theirs. It's like they want
to own everything out there.
The benches that people used
to sit at, they're taking the
benches out. What gives peo-
ple the right to take away from
the public for the sake of their
making an all-mighty profit?
Can somebody please inves-
tigate it even further and find
out why? Who do these people
who own this restaurant think
they are? What about the pub-
lic? Don't we have a right to
utilize the facilities?
Editor's Note: The restaurant
is operated under a lease with
the city that describes the right
and obligations of both parties.
In here? The recent article
on John Patten, that he lives
with his partner my un-
derstanding is that his male
partner lives outside the city.
So if he lives with his partner,
then he doesn't live off of East
Venice Avenue.
Editor's Note: Patten lists his
official residence as within the
city of Venice.
Aboil. I am a Republican. I
want term limits and I want all
five commissioners replaced.
The redistricting for the county,
that was self-serving. Now
again, it's a self-serving preser-
vation thing. They do not think
about the people. They are all
interested in their own career
and my blood's ready to boil.
I'm really upset. In your edito-
rial, you thought you didn't
expect to hear much -you're
going to hear a lot because the
people are upset about this.WTe
are going to fight it. We want
the charter change that was
passed in 1998 to stand and to
take effect immediately. So you
will be hearing from the people.
DIY. I've noticed over the
last several weeks that many
people call in about things
they are quite capable of
finding out through this thing
called Google. They should
check it out. Do something for
yourself. It's incredible.


Have It
of maintenance to this park.
Weeds and brush have been
allowed to take over areas that
in the past were mowed and
trimmed. Many places along
the Intracoastal~aterway are
so bad that you cannot see the
water while walking, much less
sitting on a bench that was put
there because it is a beautiful
scene to be seen. Park officials,
please cut the brush and mow
the Venetian Waterway Park
so that we can see the water,
The mowing once a month of a
small strip on either side of the
path is not the same as prop-
erly maintaining control of the
overgrowth.
15 percent. Two points I've
had on my mind: One is that
U.S. citizens who commit or
help others commit acts of
terrorism against our country
should be severely punished,
and I underline severely. The
dictionary defines it as "an act
of betrayal." I agree that this
describes it pretty good and
the punishment should be
severe. The second point is our
balance of trade. I think the
guy had a great idea that all
we have to do is tax 15 percent
more on goods made out of
this country. After a while the
demand would slacken for
these products, our manu-
facturing would start build-
ing up and I think that would

Poor sport. I'm the mother
of three high school graduates.
One was a football player un-
der Coach John Peacock, and
I'm a longtime supporter of all
things Venice High School, in-
cluding the football team. I am
appalled at his comments re-
garding the against North Port.
With his quote, "This is a waste
of time. It doesn't prepare us
for anything," Mr. Peacock
shows an extreme lack of good
sportsmanship and he owes
the players and the coaches of
the North Port football team
an apology. To say that play-
ing them was a waste of time
shows total disregard and
disrespect of the football team.
As I recall, it was from North
Port High School that Mr. Pea-
cock was accused of recruited
several players before the 2009
football season. I would won-
der what Mr. Peacock would
say if the community decided
it was a waste of time for us
to attend Venice High School
football games. And if anybody
thinks I'm calling because my
son didn't get football time
when he played in high school,
I assure you that he played
plenty. One year he played
both offensive and defense in
the same game quite often,
and he was on the varsity
team. So I have no sour grapes
for that reason. I just think that
Coach Peacock shows lack of
good sportsmanship.
Weed it. What's going on
with our post office in Venice?
There are weeds all over the
place and the windows are
very dirty. It's an eyesore, right
in the middle of our beautiful
town. Can't something be done
about it, either by the post of-
fice or by city officials? It really

look so bad.

Further it will not allow
them to participate as
retirees (after six years'
service) at any cost.
The only losers are the
present council mem-
bers, not previous coun-
cil members who remain
eligible as retirees for
subsidized insurance.
Here are some
facts to back up my
recommendation:
1. Some current coun-
cil members gave up
health insurance cover-
age from previous em-
ployment to participate
in the city plan. The city
plan was too generous -
no-cost health insurance
for council members
and charter officers. This
decision was made in
2()(3, not by the pres-
ent members of council.
(The council on which I
served voted, voluntarily,
to pay partial costs with
more scheduled after
budget study.)
2. At present, under


state law, retirees, in-
cluding former council
members, have to be
allowed to participate in
the city health insurance
plan at the same cost as
other employees since
they participated in it
when in office. Ironically,
this means that former
Mayor Dean Calamaras
and council members
Rick Tacy and Jim Myers,
who voted for the "free"
health insurance (which
is now seen by the city
attorney as an improper
act, since the decision
should have been put to
a referendum), will be
able to participate in the
health insurance plan
at 5() percent of current
cost, with the costs to be
raised 1() percent a year.
3. In other words,
everyone but the present
council members will
pay at a subsidized rate
and for life, at least until
city councils in the future
change the contribution


schedule for all retirees.
What happens when
the current council
members retire if they
serve for six years?
If the public votes
"yes," the council mem-
bers who elect to par-
ticipate (at full cost) will
become eligible for the
general retiree payment
schedule. So while they
serve, they are the only
city employees (elected
officials are seen as em-
ployees by the Internal
Revenue Service) who
will not receive some
subsidy. If they serve two
three-year terms hav-
ing participated at their
expense then retire, they
will receive a subsidy like
all other retirees.
Is there any logic or
justification for this situ-
ation? Not that I can see.
Instead, it has evolved
because Council Mem-
ber Emilio Carlesimo,
who has benefits paid
by the public as a retired


firefighter, has made a
political football of the
issue for others. Current
Candidate Don Ander-
son, joined with Car-
lesimo in this effort by
heading a petition drive
to end council members'
eligibility. If this is a
ridiculous position, you
know where to point.
Although the compen-
sation committee ap-
pointed by council made
a different recommenda-
tion, council members,
seemingly panicked, or
wanting to convince the
public they were not
self-seeking, agreed to
the wording in the cur-
rent resolution, which, by
now, I hope you agree is
ludicrous.
What can be done?
First, vote "yes" on the
referendum question.
Then, council members
will have health insur-
ance available to them at
a nonsubsidized 1()( per-
cent of costs to the city.


Second, the city should
present a revised plan
to the voters with ap-
propriate cost sharing
by council, perhaps at
the 5() percent rate that
earlier council members
pay. Or have the compen-
sation committee review
the plans of other juris-
dictions where elected
officers are paid $1(),2()(
(council members) or
$12,()()( (mayor) per year.
Given a reason-
able choice in a future
referendum, and with
the prior council's "free
health insurance for life"
not being even a red her-
ring kind of factor, I think
the voters of Venice will
make thoughtful and
proper decision.

Ed Mllartin, mayor of
Venice from 2007 to 2010,
writes a blog at www.
insideveniceflorida. com.
He did not participate in
the city health plan and
does not now.


Voters in Venice face a
choice on the November
ballot of voting "yes"
or "no" on the issue of
health insurance cover-
age for council members.
Unfortunately, the in-
cumbent council mem-
bers get unfair treatment
either way, but "yes"
is more equitable and
appropriate.
A "yes" vote allows
council members to
participate in the health
insurance plan at 1()()
percent of the insur-
ance cost (no city match
or subsidy.) A "no" vote
does not allow them to
participate at any cost.


those students are well-
behaved little angels, I
might add.
That in itself is no
excuse for the kind of
incident that happened
recently. This could have
been avoided by follow-
ing the safety procedures
that are in place for all
drivers.
Parents should always
be aware of who their
child's driver is. Get to
know them by being at
the bus stop in the a.m.
(at least for the first
few weeks of school,
if possible) and let-
ting the driver see you
with your child. Parents
should also consider
that a child's riding a
school bus is a privilege
and if a child misbe-
haves while riding


that privilege might
be taken from them
briefly. Parents also
have a responsibility
to teach their children
proper behavior on a
school bus.
I defend school bus
drivers, as a whole, as
being conscientious,
caring people who
take their jobs and
their responsibilities
very seriously. School
bus drivers are hard-
working people who
do their best to provide
safe delivery of your
children to their schools
and home to you. The
majority of them are
great people and I'm
proud to say that I know
them and was one of
them once. Don't judge
or paint all drivers with


the same paintbrush.

Editor:
Too brainy? .
\Ve are all suffering.
The cry is jobs, jobs'

But maybe it's above our
ability to comprehend.
Most of us aren't as smart

Having been a school
bus driver in the Sara-
sata School system for
nearly 1() years, I do
realize that these unfor-
tunate events happen.
Not very often, thank-
fully. The large majority
of drivers who transport
your children to and
from school do so in a
safe and timely manner.
They also do it under
conditions that would
try a saint's soul.
Drivers are indeed
given safety training but
beyond that, parents
should know that its
no easy job for a driver
to drive a school bus,
watch traffic and keep
an eye on up to 7() some
students they are trans-
porting and not all of


to go before the House

know which ones of our
elected (and well-paid)

want to help us.
Maybe if they had
their jobs on the line
they might do a little
rethinking.
Negativity is getting
us nowhere. Compro-
mise is a dirty word. Ve
need help and we need
it now.
A thought for our reps:
Forget being a Repub-
lican, a Democrat, a
liberal, a conservative

and start being an

Venice broke its huddles
after timeouts with one word
- fight.
The Lady Indians did just that
as they rallied from two sets
down to stun Okeechobee in five
sets, 24-26, 21-25, 28-26, 25-21,
15-13, in the Class 7A-Region 3
quarterfinals on Tuesday night
at Okeechobee High.
Venice (21-8) will continue
its postseason road trip as the
Lady Indians play at Stuart
Martin County in the regional
semifinals on Nov. 8. Martin
County swept Charlotte in
three sets.
Okeechobee's quick strike of-
fense gave Venice trouble from
the start and it continued most
of the match as the Lady Indi-
ans trailed in every set includ-
ing as many as five points in
the fifth and deciding set..
Venice didn't even take its
first lead of the match until late
in the third set.
"To say you were down in
all five sets and to come back
shows the mentality of your
team ... that they are relentless
and they are going to go for it,"
said Venice coach Jay Lanham.
The Lady Indians forced a
fifth set by scoring five of the
final six points to notch a 25-21
victory. Getting key kills were
Holly Mattmuller and Holly Ka-
bana, who ended the set with
two kills.
"Nothing to lose," said Yoder
about Lanham's speech be-
tween the fourth and fifth
sets. "\Ve came this far. He
stressed that we've been in this
situation before and this team
hasn't. They don't know what
it's like to come back and win
in five."
"You guys have heard this
speech before," said Lanham
to his team. "This is the most
exciting time of the year to play


District volleyball champs
The Venice High volleyball team shows off its Class 7A-District 11 championship trophy after capturing the title
with a five-set victory over Charlotte. It marks the 10th straight district title for the Lady Indians. Members of the
team are Taylor Jais, front left, Danika Yoder, Cassie Kasmirski, Hannah Revels, Audrey Batzer and Coach Stefanie
Betz; Coach Jay Lanham, back left, Holly Kabana, Bianca Echtler, Holly Mattmuller, Victoria Kaiser, Lauren Matt-

volleyball in a game five."
In the fifth set, Venice took
a 1-() lead. It was the first time
Venice led at the start of a
set. However, the Lady Brah-
mans went in front 3-1. At
3-3, Okeechobee scored five
consecutive points to take a
8-3 cushion.
Three kills by freshman Gen
Beaumier got Venice within,
9-6, before the Lady Indians
scored three more points to tie
it at 9-9 with back-to-back kills
by senior middle hitter Bianca
Echtler.
A kill by Okeechobee gave
the Lady Brahmans a 1()-9 lead
but Venice then scored three
straight points on two unforced
errors and kill by junior setter


Danika Yoder.
Okeechobee pulled within a
point two other times includ-
ing at 14-13 but Echtler fin-
ished off the match with her
17th kill to conclude the two-
hour, 1()-minute match.
"I guess we are a come-
from-behind team but I hate
it," said Yoder, who ended with
7() assists, 18 digs and five
kills. "After the second game
we were kind of like, there is
nothing to lose. Vhy don't we
go out there with all of our
spirit. Ve love the fifth game.
WTe love the stress of it all. It's
our team."
Echtler had four of her kills
in the fifth set.
This was Venice's second


straight victory in five sets as
the Lady Indians captured the
district title with a five set win
over Charlotte.
"I think it helped out tremen-
dously," said Lanham about
beating Charlotte in five. "Our
kids were just real confident.
We've been here before."
"I think it definitely boost
our confidence," said Yoder.
"Some teams, after they lose
the first set or first two sets,
they roll over and give up. They
don't believe in their hearts
they can do it. I think winning
that match at Charlotte boost-
ed our confidence and let us
believe we have the potential

Venice's Garrett John-
son admits he wasn't
happy on the football
team last year as he
wasn't getting much
playing time, and he
questioned whether he
wanted to play his senior
season.
A conversation with
two of his best friends
on the team changed his
mind. Now he couldn't be
happier as he is a starting
offensive guard for the
Indians.
"Last year I got kind
of discouraged because
I didn't start and didn't
really want to play this
year," said Johnson.
"Then maybe a week or
two before spring football
my friends talked me
back into it. It was mostly
Forrest Lamp and Mike
Friend who talked to me.
1Ve've been pretty much
been my friends forever.
They wanted me to come
out because they said
it wouldn't be the same
without me. It's been one
of the most fun years. I'm
playing, we are scoring,
I am a senior. Everything
all put together."
The 17-year-old


thought
he might
be center
since it's the
position he
played the
most grow-
ing up.
How-
ever, he was


weighs 2()( pounds.
He combats this with
toughness.
"He's quick off the ball,"
said Peacock. "He beats
linemen to the punch.
Not a whole lot of size
but tough. He's good at
pulling and understands
where you are sup-
posed to pull and ath-
letic enough to find that
outside linebacker when
pulling through."
"I am pretty mean
when it comes down to
it," said Johnson, who
started the season at 19()
pounds. "I anticipate the
snap count and am al-
ways coming off the ball.
I am one of the first ones,
and speedy."
Defensive lineman on
the other side of the ball
typically weight at least
5() or 6() pounds more
than Johnson.
It gives him extra
incentive.
"It just gets me going
and fired up when we
play the more-intimidat-
ing teams," said Johnson.


Venice's offense is
averaging 331 yards per
game.
Johnson is opening
holes for senior running
back Danny Dillard and
senior quarterback Grant
Flessner, who have com-
bined for 1,182 yards and
23 touchdowns. Throw in
sophomore tailback Terry
Polk and the trio have
nearly 1,5()( yards and 26
touchdowns.
"I get fired up," said
Johnson about watch-
ing his teammates run
through holes. "That is
one of the most fired
up things is when I
pull up and hit some-
one and it opens up a
hole and they get some
yards or break it for a
touchdown."
Johnson also gets to
play some defense, swap-
ping out with players
who also play offense.
"I like that too," said
Johnson, who has four
solo tackles, one assist
and one sack on defense.
Johnson is also a


successful wrestler who
would like to wrestle in
college.
Last season, Johnson
was a regional qualifier,
finishing with a 27-7
record in the 189-pound
weight class.
"I has made me a lot
faster and more ag-
gressive," said Johnson.
"More mean, and I am
always ready to go."
Johnson said he wants
to wrestle at Florida Gulf
Coast University.
He started played flag
football at age 4 in the
Venice Vikings Pop War-
ner organization.
A big reason was his
cousin, Donnie Young.
Young, a Venice High
graduate, helped lead
the University of Florida
football team to a 12-1 re-
cord and a 1996 national
championship.
"I watched him and
always wanted to play
football after that," said
Johnson.


moved to guard and he
likes the switch.
"Being a pulling guard,
you get to hit the line-
backers," said Johnson.
"I like that, and you don't
have to worry about the
snap of the ball."
It only took a five-
minute conversion with
Venice High head coach
John Peacock to know
one of Johnson's biggest
assets is his toughness.
"He plays with a great
motor," said Peacock.
"He's come a long way
since last year. He's prob-
ably our most-improved
player as he is very physi-
cal, coachable and he
just finishes a play and is
a tough, hard-nosed kid.
He's become one of our
best linemen. The way he
gets off the ball and fin-
ishes he's been impres-
sive all season long. He's
a tough, tough kid."
Johnson is small for
a lineman as he only

STAFF REPORT

The Knights of the
Junior Pee Wee Division
rallied for the first time
all season, then held on
for a thrilling 22-2() win
over North Fort Myers
to claim the Division 2
Peace River Conference
title Saturday at North
Fort Myers.
The Knights remain
unbeaten on the season
with a 11-() record and
will play in the regional

Midget Division had their
unbeaten season end
with a 22-3 loss to North
Fort Myers.
Against the Knights,
North Fort Myers got
a quick touchdown on
its first possession. The
extra-point kick failed for
a 6-() lead.
Venice responded
with a long drive and a
28-yard touchdown run
by Scott Schenke behind

In the first set, Ven-
ice trailed by as many
as eight points, 11-3,
before coming back
to eventually tie it at
19-19. The Lady Indians
couldn't get over the
hump and take the lead
but did tie it at 22-22
and 24-24 on kills by
Echtler.
However, the Lady In-
dians hit the ball in the
net and had a miscom-
munication on set point
as the Lady Brahmans
(18-8) took a 1-() lead.
The second set was
a mirror of the first as
Venice fell behind, 10-4.

The Junior Pee Wee Knights of the Venice Vikings Pop Warner
organization show off their medals and trophy after capturing
the Division 2 Peace River Conference championship with a
22-20 win over North Fort Myers Saturday at North Fort Myers.
The Knights will play Flagler at 11 a.m. Saturday at Deltona
High in regional action.


A successful kick by
Randon Latta gave the
Knights a 3-6 lead.
The Knights' defense
was challenged to stop
the dynamic running of
North Fort Myers' Devon
Thompkins as the elusive
back quickly scored
again. A successful PAT
for two points gave NFM
a 14-8 lead.
The Knights took
little time to answer as
Schenke scored again
on a 28-yard run behind
the blocking of Noah


The Lady Indians pulled
within a point a few
times including 2()-19
but Okeechobee had an
answer every time.
"I think Okeechobee
did a great job of taking
us out of our offense,"
said Lanham. "They
have some aggressive
hitters over there and
they were attacking us.
They are scrappy and
dig balls. You have to
give a lot of credit. They
played tough and hard."
In the third set, Venice
trailed the entire time
and by as many as five
points, 22-18, just four
points from elimination.
The Lady Brahmans
needed only two points
at 23-2() before Venice
scored three points in
a row including an ace

The blocking of run-

Xavier Cruz and Noah
Constantino also helped
Venice drive down
field for the second
TD. Another successful
extra-point kick by Latta
gave the Knights a 16-14
advantage.
The second half started
where the first half left
off with Venice's Special
Forces offense converting
a first down, led by the

23-23 tie.
A kill by Holly Matt-
muller, who had 17 kills
and 19 digs for Venice,
gave the Lady Indians
set point.
Okeechobee fought
it off and two other
set points before the
Lady Indians put two
points together on kills
by Holly Mattmuller
and Revels for a 28-26
victory.
"I think in the begin-
ning of the match we
had to get used to the
speed," said Lanham.
"They run a quick and
high-powered offense
and our blockers were
a little late. 1Ve weren't
really sure where they
were going with the ball.

Indians looking
to rebound
The Indians are coming
off their first loss of the
season, a 52-19 setback
to district rival Manatee.
"\Ve are determined to
play them in the second
round of the playoffs,"
said Johnson. "\Ve can
hang with them, and if
we try hard we have a
shot at them."
"\Ve did some good
things," said Peacock.
"\Ve moved the ball and
weren't real sure we were
going to be able to run
the ball successfully
against them. It showed
them that we could
and they weren't super-
men.1Ve just did some
other bad things, such
as turning the ball over,
interceptions, dropped
passes, and we turned
the wrong way a couple
of times. Clean it up a bit
and hopefully next time
it will be a little closer."
Venice had last week

"It was a good week,"

Lou Drendel at 73 at home in Venice.


By DON MOORE
SUN CORRESPONDENr

Long before he joined
the 82nd Airborne Divi-
sion as a peacetime war-
rior in the mid-1950s, Lou
Drendel ofVenice was
fascinated with all things
military. It began when he
was a kid and his father
built model airplanes for
him.
"These models got me
interested in aviation and
launched my avocation in
aviation art," the 73-year-
old former airborne
soldier said. "The book
that inspired me to join
the airborne was one by
Ross Carter, 'Those Devils
in Baggy Pants.' It was the
story of the 504th Para-
chute Infantry Regiment
that preceded the 82nd
Airborne in World War II.
"I graduated from a
Catholic military school
in 1955 and joined the
82nd at 18. I went to
jump school at Fort Bragg
and spent my entire
enlistment (there),"
Drendel said. "We went
to Panama in 1957 and
I became an expert in
jungle warfare.
"It was the peacetime
army. President Eisen-
hower was determined
to keep us out of foreign
conflicts. In those days
the service didn't have
enough troops to perform
any kind of mission," he
said. "Because I knew
how to type I became the
operations sergeant for
our company. One of my
duties was filling out the
manifests for parachute
jumps. In order to get
your $55 monthly jump


pay, you had to jump
every 90 days.
"What would happen
(is) the regimental jump
people would call down
and say we needed eight
jumpers to fill a plane.
Because we had so few
people there were never
eight people, so I always
put myself down as one
of them. I ended with
about twice as many
jumps as my contempo-
raries. I got enough jumps
to qualify for jumpmaster
school," Drendel said.
"I thought it was a lot of
fun being in the airborne
at first. After 18 months in
the service I became disil-
lusioned with the service.
We weren't doing much,"
he said. "Before I went in
the Airborne I applied for
West Point. After I had
been in the service more
than a year I received
an appointment and
was ordered to take the
entrance exam. By that
time I decided the military
wasn't such a great career
for me so I passed up the
WTest Point appointment.
"It was always an
adventure jumping out of
airplanes. Things hap-
pened," Drendel said.
"There was a fellow in my
unit named Sam Sessions.
He later became an India-
napolis driver. I always
thought the guy was nuts.
He had a new Ford he
drove real fast and we
hung out together.
"One time when he was
jumping out of a C-119 he
knocked himself out. WTe
could empty a C-119 of 40
jumpers in 8.5 seconds.
When your parachute
opened the static line


pulled the deployment
bag off your back.
"Sam jumped so close
to the guy in front of him
the deployment bag from
the jumper in front of
him hit him in the head
and knocked him out.
He didn't come to until
he was on the ground,"
Drendel said.
By the time he com-
pleted his first hitch he
had made 41 jumps, and
was a jumpmaster and
a fire direction specialist
with a 4.2 mortar battery
in a support company
of the 325th Regiment of
the 82nd Airborne. It was
1958 and Drendel had
decided one hitch in the
military was enough.
He contemplated being
an artist and spent a year
or two attending night
school at the Ameri-
can Academy of Art in
Chicago. While there he
got a job to finance his
education working for a
lumber company outside
the Windy City.
"I got promoted to
truck driver at the lumber
company. Eventually I
worked my way into the
office. I retired as general
manager of the lumber
company after 37 years in
2000," he said.
Along the way Drendel
pursued his passion for
drawing military airplane
pictures. Over the years
he has illustrated the
pages of 70 books. He's
written about American
military airplanes, mostly.
"I drew some pictures
of military planes that
were published in the
Chicago Tribune's Sunday
magazine about Vietnam


airplanes," he said. "A
military publisher saw
them and suggested I do
a book on the Vietnam
air war and illustrate it
with my pictures. 'The
Vietnam Air War' is what
I called it, and I wrote it
and drew the pictures for
a publisher called Arco in
1967."
In his spare time, when
not painting U.S. military
aircraft or running his big
lumber company 30 miles
northwest of Chicago,


Drendel devoted a good
many hours helping to
establish the Lima, Lima
flight team, a civilian Blue
Angels. They're a squad-
ron of aviators who do
precision aerobatics in
World War II T-34 train-
ers painted bright yellow
and emblazoned with the
Air Force's white star on
a circular field of blue on
the wings and fuselage.
"We did everything the
Blue Angels did, except
we did it slower," he said.


"I flew with them for over
30 years and ended up
with 4,000 hours of flight
time in a T-34."
Drendel and his wife,
Carol, moved to Venice in
2003. They have two sons
and a daughter.

and the tragic events that
foll0W. Cio-Cio-San be-
lieves the marriage to be
for all time. The lieuten-
ant believes the marriage
to be the "Japanese way"
- for 999 years with "the
right to cancel monthly."
After a lovely garden
wedding attended by
the marriage broker
(Jamin Flabiano), the
Imperial Commissioner
(Dimitrie Lazich) and
Cio-Cio-San's family, the
lieutenant goes back to
sea and ultimately back
to America, where he
all but forgets about his
Japanese bride. He does
not know about his son,
Sorrow, (played by Bran-
don Cronin, Gabriel Long


and Christian Pangallo)
and eventually weds Kate
(Lindsay Barche). The
marriage broker knows
all of this and tries to
persuade Cio-Cio-San
to wed Prince Yamadori
(Steven Uliana). Living
with Cio-Cio-San is her
devoted servant Suzuki
(Nina Yoshida Nelsen).
The tragic story un-
folds in three acts that
begin with the wedding,
followed by the bride's
longtime devotion to
her husband in act two
leading to the tragic
ending when she real-
izes her lieutenant has
wed another. Both the
singing and acting are
quite good, although


Davila seems to play his
character as rigid and
stodgy rather than as the
carefree lieutenant who
weds for convenience
rather than love.
Also in the cast are
Marco Nistico as Charp-
less, the U.S. Consulin
Nagasaki; Jedffrey Beruan
as The Uncle Bonze; Mat-
thew Klauser as Yakuside;
Nathan Wilson as The
Official Registrar; Lara
Lynn Cottrill as Cio-Cio-
San's mother; Jennifer
Townshend as her aunt;
and Rebecca Caliendo as
her cousin.
Barche, Caliendo, Cot-
trill, Uliana and1Vilson
are apprentice artists
with the opera. Beruan,


Flabiano and Lazich are
studio artists. The chorus
comprises apprentice
and studio artists.
Victor DeRenzi, in
his 3()th season with
the opera, directed the
Sarasota Orchestra with
style, showing off the
improved acoustics of
the opera house since its
renovations and pit en-
largement. The opera will
celebrate DeRenzi's an-
niversary March 25 with a
gala party and concert.
Nov. 6, at 11 a.m., 3
and 8 p.m. singers from
the opera will perform
excerpts from "Madama
Butterfly" on an out-
door stage at the corner
of Dolphin Street and


South Pineapple Avenue,
in downtown Sarasota.
For this free event held
in conjunction with the
Sarasota Chalk Festi-
val, special sets have
been created by street
artist Michael Kirby of
Baltimore.
This production of
"Madama Butterfly" was
created in 2()(7 by Sara-
sata Opera. It continues
through Nov. 15, with
matinees on Nov. 5 and
9 and an evening perfor-
mance on Nov. 15 at the
Sarasota Opera House,
61 N. Pineapple Ave. For
tickets, call the box office
at 941-366-845(), ext. 1.

Asako Tamura was
lovely Friday night as
Madama Butterfly in the
opera of the same name
at Sarasota Opera.
Equally stunning
were David P. Gordon's
set and the costumes
designed by Howard Tsvi
Kaplan for this season's
recreation of its 2()(7
production.
Sung in Italian, "Ma-
dama Butterfly" has
become an opera classic.
It tells the story of the
arranged marriage of
Cio-Cio-San (Madama
Butterfly) to a U.S. Navy
lieutenant (Rafael Davila)

ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR

Nine individuals and groups per-
formed Friday, Oct. 28, at the Lost 'n'
Found teen concert at Venice Commu-
nity Center.
The WareHouse sponsored the event
to give local teens a chance to perform
and have a fun time.
Linda Banister, executive director of The
WareHouse, said many teens were over-
heard saying what a good time they had.
"They were very excited to have been
able to perform," she said. "A lot of the
kids left comments on their Facebook
page."
Thel~areHouse plan to hold more
events like this in the future for area teens.

FROM SARASOTA COUNTY
SCHOOL DISTRICT

Open enrollment for Sara-
sata Virtual School began
Nov. 1 for the second semester
of the current school year. The
semester startsl~ednesday,
Jan. 18.
SVS is a district public school
that provides a full-time online
learning option for students in
grades K-12. A student must
have been enrolled full-time in
a Florida public school (tradi-
tional, charter or alternative) in
the previous year to be eligible.
SVS is an interactive learn-
ing environment created


through technology in which
the student and teacher are
separated by time, space or
both. Students access lessons
and assignments and receive
assessments via the Internet.
Using technology, teachers
communicate with students
and parents in many differ-
ent ways. The school meets
all Florida public school
standards and requirements.
Students completing gradua-
tion requirements will receive
a high school diploma.
The Sarasota County School
District contracts with two
outside virtual instruction pro-
viders approved by the school


board. Kl2 Florida provides
online learning services for
students in grades K-12; Florida
Virtual School serves students
in grades nine-12. High school
students may choose either
provider to meet their needs.
The school uses a state-
approved curriculum with
instructional materials that
include textbooks and printed
materials. Computers and In-
ternet access may be provided
at no charge to eligible stu-
dents who meet family income
requirements. Instructors are
highly qualified teachers as
defined by the federal No Child
Left Behind law.


SVS is graded yearly, as are
all schools in Florida. Teach-
ers monitor student progress
and give assignments online
and through physical ma-
terials shipped to and from
students. Student attendance
is monitored, based on online
activity, completion of material
and successful assessments.
Textbooks and traditional
instructional materials are
used, but much of the content
is delivered via the providers'
websites, www.kl2.com/flvp
(grades K-12) and www.flysft.
com (grades nine-12).
Eligible students for the
2()11-12 school year are those


in grades two-12 who were
enrolled in a Florida public
school since Oct. 1, 2)1().
Students who are entering
kindergarten and first grade
during the 2()11-12 school year
are eligible to enroll. Accord-
ing to current Florida statutes,
students who were home-
schooled during the 2)1()-11
school year are not eligible for
SVS. Interested parents must
schedule an appointment with
the SVS administrator to dis-
cuss their student's needs.
The Sarasota Virtual School
office can be reached at 941-
927-9()()(, ext. 32262, or by
email at SVSesarasota.kl2.fl.us.


RHHURI eVent with help
from students, parents,
teachers and administra-
tive staff members.
The VMS gym was
transformed into an in-
clusive Hispanic cultural
event with posters, food,
videos and information
booths on all Central
American and
a1 South Ameri-
can coun-


the Caribbean Islands.
Music and dance were
featured all day, along
with specific Hispanic
dress and costumes.
Parents and students
alike assisted at each of
the information booths
throughout the celebra-
tion that lasted seven
hours and was viewed by
more than 7()( visitors.
Carrion described the
events as a mini-Epcot
wherein "passports were


distributed to each and
every visitor and a stamp
was required to move
from country to country,"
he said. "\Ve encouraged

between the visitors and
the individuals manning
the booths. It turned out to
be a true educational and
learning experience for
students and adults alike."

Another expansion in
2008 increased fundrais-
ing activities so people
and groups can gather
sponsorships for wreaths
to help Wreaths Across
America.
Individuals and organi-
zations can send a check
to SMA at 8()1 N. Orange
Ave., Sarasota FL 34236,
to purchase wreaths for
the headstones.


Carrion anticipates that
"next year will be even a
bigger event," and said
he is pleased to be able to
bring Spanish culture to
the VMS community."

Sponsorships are $15
per wreath.1Vreaths will
be sent to the location,
and no wreaths are sent
to those purchasing

What action do you take?!

A Partner's bid is not Stayman, it is
showing a weak hand with long

hearing a major from you, he would
have cue-bid two diamonds.

you hold:

A -Partner's jump raise is
invitational. Had East passed, you
would have raised to game. Now,
however, you have been given an
additional option by the overcall -
your hand is suited to defense and
notrump. Pass, and let partner decide
what he would like to do.

Your left-hand opponent opens the

A -You should offer some
competition, so it is simply a matter
of which suit to bid. We prefer one
spade for two reasons the one-
level overcall is safer and it offers
partner the opportunity to compete in
the higher-ranking suit.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
My 6-year-old, very
healthy, active grandson
was just diagnosed as
having kidney stones.
His pediatrician said it is
mostly genetic, but no one
else in the family has had
kidney stones. A friend
told us she heard that
stones could be caused
by drinking Gatorade. My

Iot ofd Goae rHe kdes
not eat processed meat,
nor does he have much
salt in his diet. From the
Internet, I came up with
the enclosed article, which
linked Gatorade to kidney
stones. I feel that someone
needs to inform parents
that too much Gatorade in
children can affect health
adversel G.S
ANSWER: An increase
in children having kidney
stones has been noticed.
Some authorities have
speculated that the
increase in stones might be
linked to children's greater
intake of salty foods like
potato chips, french fries
and other heavily salted
snacks. The sodium in
salt leads to a rise in the.
amount of calcium lost in
the urine, and, therefore'
an increase in kidney-
stone production.
Eight ounces of Gato-
rade has 110 mg of
sodium. New guidelines
for daily sodium intake is
1,500 mg. >o rach that
rade, one would have to
drink 13 8-ounce cans or
9 12-ounce cans. Blaming
the surge in the number
of children on Gatorade
seems iffy to me.
Your grandson would
be b tter os substhtut ngn

of Gatorade with water. He
needs to cut back on his
cons mtion of salt from
other foods too. Gatorade
keeps him hydrated, but
he can stay hydrated with
water. Dehydration is a
proven cause of kidney
stones.
I welcome other readers'
opinions on this issue.
The booklet on sodium,
potassium and chloride
- electrolytes explains
the role of these minerals
in health. Readers can
obtain a copy by writing:

Box 536475, Orlando, FL

DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
Because of a backache,
my doctor ordered X-rays.
Enclosed is the summary


from the radiologist.
I am concerned about
the abdominal aorta, but
my doctor's office doesn't
seem to be. I would like to
know the cause and what
to do about it. I am 74.
Also, what does "grossly
normal alignment" mean?
- M
ANSWER: Your X-ray
report remarks on your
aorta, the body's largest
artery, which travels from
the heart to the bottom of
the abdomen. The report
says, "There is heavy calc1-
fication of the abdominal
aorta." In translation,
that means you have
artery hardening of the
aorta, officially called

Mots r -ar-olds
have some calcification
of their aorta. The body
uses calcium like we use
spackle, to fill in cracks
and holes in walls. The
aorta takes a pounding'
It receives blood from the
heart at high pressure.
Calcium fills in defects
that come to the aorta


and other material coat
the lining of the aorta,
and calcium deposits on
those materials too. To
minimize further deposi-
tion of calcium, keep your
blood pressure controlled,
au bc fods thadke
red meats and whole dairy
products, up your intake
of whole grains, fruits and
vegetables, and stay as
active as you can.
Your last question about
normal alignment refers to
your backbones. They're
stacked up properly.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
You printed two letters
on headaches. I don't see
you mention the medicine
that works for me Exce-
drin. It takes only half a
pill to end my headaches.
My grown son has tried
it, but he didn't get good
results. Just wanted you to
know how well it works for
me. J.R.
ANSWER: Thanks.
Excedrin is a combination
of aspirin and acetamino-
phen (Tylenol). Many
Excedrin products also
contain caffeine, which is
said to enhance pain relief.
I'm sure readers will
appreciate your testimonial.

Mom's spaghetti sauce Ci


Dear Heloise: I had the
recipe for your mother's
(the original Heloise)
spaghetti sauce and lost
it in a move. Please print
it again, and I will guard
it with my life! Barbara
WValls, Bald Knob, Ark.
This is a delicious
recipe and an all-time
favorite. I remember my
mother making it and
the fabulous aroma that
drifted through the house.
I'm happy to print it again
and again it's that
good!

Heloise's original
Italian spaghetti sauce

1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup butter
1 cup finely chopped
omions
1 pound ground beef
4 strips finely chopped
bacon
4 cloves garlic, chopped
fine
3 tablespoons finely
chopped, fresh parsley
1 bay leaf, chopped fine
1 tablespoon salt
Black pepper, freshly
ground to taste
1 teaspoon crushed dry
red pepper
2 ounces red wine
2 15-ounce cans of
whole tomatoes or
tomato sauce
1 small can tomato
paste
1 cup water
1 finely chopped carrot
(or grated Heloise, 2011)

Heat the olive oil over
low heat in a large pot.
(Note: You will be adding


Hints from Heloise

all your other ingredients
to this one pot). Add the
butter and simmer until
it melts. Add onions and
saute until a light brown
color. Add the ground
beef and bacon, and
continue sauteing until
browned. Be sure to stir
occasionally.
Add garlic, parsley, bay
leaf, salt, black pper
and red pepper. For 10
minutes, continue to cook
over low heat. Add wine,
cover and let sit for a few
minutes.
Add tomatoes or sauce,
paste and water. Bring to
boil. Add chopped carrot.
Cover and cook for an
hour, stirring occasionally
over low heat. Now, cook
up your favorite pasta,
top and serve with this
sauce. Enjoy! Heloise

Fast-food

Dear Heloise: I found
that if I cut the rim off a
yogurt container, the little
packets from fast-food
restaurants like ketchup,
butter, etc., fit perfectly
and don't scatter all over
the drawer. Annette S.,

DEAR ABBY: I'm a
15-year-old girl who has
never been in trouble,
but my mom treats me
like I'm a criminal. She
makes me go to church
every Sunday. She makes
me go to Catholic school,
and I have to wear an ugly
uniform. She won't help
with my homework. She
says, "I already did 10th
grade." I can't wear halter

When I go out with
my friends, she wants to
know where I'm going,
who I'll be with, what
we'll be doing, when we'll
be back and their phone
numbers. IflI have a
date with a new boy she
makes him come into the
house and tell her what
school he goes to. Then
she makes him show her
his driver's license and car
registration.
I can't keep my com-
puter in my room. When
I'm using it in the den,
she looks over my shoul-
der and won't let me go
to chat rooms. I have to
set the table even if we
don't have company and
sit down and have dinner
with her every night.
If I can't afford some-
thing, she tells me to
save up or budget bet-
ter. She won't let me
drive until I can pay for
my own insurance. It's
not like my mom's poor.

been to Europe and on
cruises. But she won't

Fau~r s Editor


Venice is inclined toward

the arts everyday

another show" when "Big River: the Adventures of Huckle-
berry Finn" opened on the theater's main stage. Tomorrow,
"Radio Gals" opens in the theater's black box theater, the Pinkerton
Theatre, home of Stage II and Cabaret productions. For tickets to
either show both musicals call the box off ice at 941-488-1115
or visit www.venicestage.com.
There is even a Venice art connection in St. Petersburg where
the Museum of Fine Arts is presenting ""The New York School:
Selections From the Gollay Collection." The collection is pre-
sented by Benjamin Gollays' widow Jean Gollay, longtime Venice
resident and for even longer a major contributor to and editor
of Good Housekeeping and similar magazines. Benjamin was a
lawyer who often accepted paintings as payment for his services
to artists working in New York in the 1950s. The show comprises
35 objects, including paintings, sculpture and other works by
such artists as Willem deKooning, Norman Bluhm, Milton Resnick
and Robert deNiro Sr. (father of the actor).
A large painting by the late Syd Soloman is important to
the collection because it represents an additional cultural tie
of Sarasota to New York. Solomon was the first living artist
whose work was included in the Ringling collection according to
information from the St. Petersburg museum. John and Mable
Ringling came to Sarasota from New York where they continued
to maintain a home until their deaths. The art museum that bears
their name was the first of the many cultural institutions created in
the city that today is considered the cultural capital of Florida and
we all benefit from that.

E/N/C/V November 2-8, 2011


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Clearwater is rife with road trip possibilities.
Walk, it has a multi-million dollar work-in-
progress the Clearwater Aquarium.
The aquarium is home to one of the most
famous film stars living along Florida's west coast
- Winter the dolphin.
Currently the aquarium does not project an im-
age in keeping with housing a film star but it will
when its huge construction project is completed.
Until then it still merits a visit, even if you have
to park on a stretch of grass instead of a paved
parking lot.
That this is a work in progress will be evident
as you walk past the construction trailers
between your car and the entrance but that is
no reason to stay away for there is much to see
here, although Winter is reason enough.
Winter is the real-life star of "Dolphin Tale,"
which opened earlier this fall in area theaters.
Swimming with the aid of a prosthesis to make
up for the loss of its tail fin to an all-too-common
run-in with monofilament fishing line and other
fishing debris that cost the animal its tail, Winter
became world famous when a team consist-
ing of marine mammal veterinarian Dr. Mike
Walsh teamed up with Kevin Carroll and Dan
Strzempka of Sarasota-based Hanger Corp. to
fashion a prosthetic tail for Winter. They also had
to figure a way to hold the prosthetic tail in place
as the dolphin swam, which is accomplished by
thrusting its tail. A special lining fabric protects its
delicate skin even as it helps hold the prosthesis

in p how it works and Winter not only swims
with seeming ease but can stay submerged for
what seems like several minutes while trainers
talk about the creation of the tail replacement.
Also to be seen there but not nearly so exciting
as the dolphin, is the office used in the film, which
stars Morgan Freeman, Harry Connick Jr. and
Ashley Judd with Winter
While Winter is this aquarium's star attraction,
there are other dolphins, a turtle area, sea cav-
ern, shipwreck alley, the Brighthouse-sponsored
Atlantis Theater, Stingray Beach, Otter Oasis,
Shark Pass and the Safe Harbor Surgical Suite,
which can be seen from behind glass windows.
Visitors can pet dolphins and feed sting rays
and, for an extra fee, take an Eco-Boat tour or a
behind the scenes tour. For the ultimate experi-
ence, be a "trainer for a day" or sign up for a
kayak adventure.


The aquarium is wheelchair accessible but the
Sea Life Safari is not.
Should you want an overview of other places
to visit in Clearwater, hop on the Jolly Trolley,
which goes as far south as St. Petersburg Beach
and back.
Each Wednesday from now to May, there is
a farmer's market on Cleveland Street, which is
on the mainland side of Clearwater. As it is only
open until 2 p.m., you may want to bring a cooler
and visit it before going to the aquarium. Park in
the Garden Avenue garage and have your ticket
validated by a market vendor for up to two hours
of free parking.

The seminars answer questions like: What do
local butterflies require? What wildflower mead-
ows and native ecosystems can be replicated in
your backyard? Do you live in a master planned
community and want to attract butterflies to areas
adjoining a golf course?
Kathy Malone, a retired specialist with the Flor-
ida-Florida Landscaping Program in Gainesville
will discuss the concept of attracting butterflies to
all areas of a community, from individual back-
yards to scenic lakefronts as well as creating and
preserving local wetlands. One local butterfly gar-
den is featured on the butterfly tour near Bonita
Springs. A well-known golf course community,
Pelican Landing, houses a beautiful nature park
and butterfly garden. Visiting butterflies travel over


the mangrove forest bordering the Estero Bay
and enter a secluded oasis of butterfly attracting
plants designed by local gardeners and butterfly
enthusiasts. Meet the butterfly garden curator,
Bob Lerew.
In addition to the two special seminars in the
morning and the afternoon tour from 2 p.m.
to 4 p.m., attendees will learn how to protect
and identify our east coast migrating Monarch
butterfly. Attendees will learn how to properly tag
and record your Monarch sighting in Southwest
Florida .The portion of the program is led by Dr.
James and Kelly Dunford.
In addition, 15 local plant vendors are partici-
pating.

sides of the political spectrum at 8 p.m.
Thursday at the Van Wezel Performing Arts
Hall.
Comedy is the great equalizer and no matter
who holds office, there's never a shortage of
material.
"Typically the Republicans goof up and the
Democrats party. Then the Democrats goof up
and the Republicans party. That's what we call
the two-party system," says Elaina Newport, co-
founder of the Capitol Steps.
The Capitol Steps have performed for a wide
variety of audiences both in and out of the D.C.
area. From the National Welding Supply Associa-
tion, university audiences and high schoolers to
state legislators and the last five Presidents (six,
if you include Hillary, the only complaints the
Steps seem to get are from politicians and per-
sonalities who are not included in the program.
The material is updated constantly. Current


examples include the Tea Party's colorful inva-
sion into the political spectrum ("Fun Fun Fun
'til Obama Takes Our Tea Bags Away") and the
Democrats' plan to defeat the deficit ("Return to
Spenders").
In addition, the Capitol Steps offer their own
take on such trending topics as the T.S.A. pat
downs, Facebook and illegal immigration accord-
ing to Arizonians.
No matter who or what is in the headlines, you
can bet the Capitol Steps will tackle both sides
of the political spectrum and all things equally
foolish.
In the 30 years that the Capitol Steps have
been satirizing the very people and places that
employed them (they were founded in 1981 when
staffers for Senator Charles Percy were planning
Christmas party entertainment and couldn't find
three wise men or a virgin) the Capitol Steps
have recorded over 30 albums, including their
latest, "Desperate Housemembers" and their
special holiday release, "Barackin' Around the
Christmas Tree." Taken together the performers

PROVIDED BY THE VENICE THEATRE

Venice Theatre's next musical Cabaret is
"Radio Gals"' oening on th hPnkerton Stage

Set in thel920s, "Radio Gals" tells the story of
Hazel Hunt (played by Dawn Carpenter), a retired
music teacher who receives a radio transmitter as
a gift. Joined in her parlor by her all-girl orches-
tra, the Hazelnuts, she tries transmitting a few
airwaves of her own on "WGAL." When the FCC
comes to call, Hazel and her Hazelnuts must fight
to keep their little show on the air.
"Radio Gals" is directed by the theatre's
long-time producing director, Allan Kollar. Kollar's
experienced direction will not be the only familiar
thing about this show. The cast of "Radio Gals" is
made up of accomplished local actors and sing-
ers whose faces (and voices) will be recognized
from many other shows.
Not only will Kim Kollar ("Ragtime"), Bobbi
Eschenbach ("The Drowsy Chaperone"),
Rebecca Phippard ("The Great American Trailer
Park Musical") and Dawn Carpenter (Disney's
"Beauty and the Beast") be acting, singing and
dancing up a storm, they will also be playing
instruments, taking this musical to another level.
David Brown (most recently seen in "The Drowsy
Chaperone") joins the gals as the one gentleman
in the show and will be playing accordion and
ukulele. The cast is backed up by a full on stage
band led by Michelle Kasanofsky (Miss Mable) on
piano and Cathy Baudrit-Noeth (Miss Azilee) on
bass, flute and saxophone. Priscilla Boyd is the
percussionist and Michelle Neal plays a variety of

Float along with Huck Finn in

GO FEATURES EDITOR


musical season with "Big River: The
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn," which
runs through Nov. 27.
Based on the 1885 novel by Mark Train, the
musical won seven Tony Awards for its Broadway
run in 1985.
Directed and choreographed by Brad Wages
who earned accolades this summer for his
direction of "Jesus Christ Superstar," "Big River"
features Tony DeNiro, 17, who portrayed Judas
in "Superstar" as Huckleberry Finn with Brandon
Michael Fleming as Jim, the slave, with who he
runs away. Fleming appeared in the recent Venice
production of 'The 25th Annual Putnam County
Spelling Bee" and "Ragtime," which set box office
and gross revenue records, despite its fall, pre-
season time slot.
Expectations are high that Wages and com-


pany can do it again with "Big River." Once again,
DeNiro will appear on the same stage as his
father, Phil DeNiro (Pap Finn). Phil appeared as
Caiaphas in "Superstar," making this their second
father-son pairing this year. Younger sister Terri
DeNiro plays the role of Susan Wilkes.
Other Venice Theatre regulars include Hunter
Cross (Tom Sawyer), Dana Kitson (Mark Twain),
Ted DeVirgilis (Judge Thatcher), Tara Hart (Mary
Jane Wilkes), Lauren Kelly (Alice) and Joseph Gi-
glia (Doctor). Also in the cast are Syreeta Banks,
Travis Rose, Ross Boehringer, Noelle Oxboel,
Princess Jackson, Debbi White, Joi Henry, Susan
Johnson, Brandon Butler, Brian Martin, Zak
Evanikci, Charlie Kollar, Stephen Junker, Michael
Burke, Thomas Junker and Nick Pokorny.
Because Twain wrote about the issues of his
day, often with humor, earning his place among
the great writers in American literature, "Big
River" has a story suitable for all ages. According
to information in a press release from the theater,


"The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" stirred
controversy "in 1885 for challenging authority and
poking fun at religion." Venice Theatre's produc-
tion will be true to the original story, even to
the use of the word "nigger' which will be in the
Venice production according to the same release.
The book for the musical was written by William
Hauptman with music and lyrics by Roger Miller.
Drew Rienstra is the musical director with
technical direction by John Andzulis, set design by
Jason Bolen, lighting by David Castaneda, sound
by Dorian Boyd and costumes by Nicholas Hartman
who won several awards last season for his work on
'The Hing and I," another mainstage musical.
While the show continues until Nov. 27, there
will not be a show on Thanksgiving, Nov. 24. Tick-
ets for "Big River: The Adventures of Huckleberry
Finn" are $24-$27 for adults and $12-$15 for
students. Venice Theatre is at 140 W.Tampa Ave.,
on the island in downtown Venice. For tickets, visit
www.venicestage.com or call 941-488-1115.

BY CHRIS PORTER
SUN EDITOR
Think it's weird that Los Lobos is headlining
a blues festival?
Sure the band is known for playing
straight rock, traditional Mexican conjuntos and
even scoring a No. 1 hit with "La Bamba." But a
blues band?
Sure.
Consider this: In 2001, Los Lobos headlined at
the Tampa Bay Blues Festival in St. Pete's Vinoy
Park. Four years later, they were back at the
same park, headlining a Carribbean festival for a
thoroughly different crowd.
Try to think of another band who could pull
that off.
So how do you do that?
It's all about the setlist.
"That's my job," band member Steve Berlin
says on the phone from Edmonton, Alberta,
Canada."I do a different one every night."
Berlin is the "new guy," having joined Los
Lobos in 1983, just before they broke on the
college radio scene with "I Got Loaded." It was
after they'd signed with Slash Records, but before
they'd score gold with "La Bamba."
Yes, Slash was a punk record label that had
signed X and the Violent Femmes and Berlin's
former band, The Blasters. Los Lobos fit right in
there too, and have played their share of punk
clubs, too. And weddings.


CP IFYOU GO:
Tihe Sarasaota BluesFest will be held
Saturday at Ed Smith Stadium, Sarasota.
Gates open 11 a.m.
Tickets are $22 advance, $27 day of show
All kids free with adult.
www.sarasotabluesfest.com or 855-292-5837

Lineup:
Noon-12:50 p.m.: Mike Imbasciani
with Alex Shaw.
1:10-2:10 p.m.: Selwyn Birchwood.
2:30-3:50 p.m.: Lightnin' Malcolm.
4:10-5:40 p.m.: Shaun Murphy.
6-7:30 p.m.: Ryan Shaw.
8-9:30 p.m.: Los Lobos.

You'd want Berlin in your band if you've already
got guitars, percussion and accordion, since he
can play a mean tenor sax solo on one song,
jump on the keyboards for the next, then provide
those deep, bone-vibrating honks on the baritone
sax that echo long into the night.
Plus he'll do the setlist.
"I'll get an impression or a temperature from
the audience. Sometimes it's the room or just
the vibe that determines what's going to hap-
pen," he explains. "I'll write up a full set, all the
way through. Then, about six out of 10 times,

someone in the band will hijack it and we go in a
completely different direction."
That's cool. It explains how Los Lobos opened
their Tampa Bay Blues Festival set with the All-
man Brothers' classic "Statesboro Blues"
11 years ago. A blues crowd. In Florida.
Berlin says he has about 60 to 70 songs to
choose from, mostly the band's originals. Those
are nearly all written by some combination of
members David Hildago and Louis Perez or Cae-
sar Ramos, like "Mas y Mas," or "Kiko" or "How
Will the Wolf Survive."They've also got a host of
creative covers, like the Grateful Dead's "West
L.A. Fadeaway," which they recorded for their
latest album, Tin Can Trust. In the past, they've
put out a full album of Disney songs, another of


all Spanish-language songs. And they've got at
least a dozen polkas.
Sounds like doing a setlist for this band can be
some fun.
What does Berlin have in mind for Saturday
night at the Sarasota Blues Fest? He wasn't
anywhere near deciding that yet.
But he did leave the door open for some audi-
ence input.You can go to the band's website, loslo-
bos.org and click on the'Toui' button.That's where
you can request a song for the Sarasota setlist.
"I love it when people do that," Berlin says."It's
a great way to get ideas."
Los Lobos doesn't get to Florida much. Maybe
if we help Steve out with his setlist, it wouldn't be
so long between shows.

The Hermitage Artist Retreat is pleased to
announce the lineup for its Artist Series to
be held at the Historic Asolo Theater at the
John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art. To date,
six events will take place on Thursday nights
scheduled from Thursday through March 15.
World-class artists who have been invited to
work at the Manasota Key retreat will present
programs in a multitude of art disciplines includ-
ing photography, music, theater and visual arts.
All events begin at 7:30 p.m. A $5 fee covers the
cost of the theater. Reservations are recommended
and may be made by calling the Historic Asolo The-
ater box office at 941-360- 7399. The Historic Asolo
Theater is located in the Ringling Museum's Visitors
Pavilion at 5401 Bay Shore Road, Sarasota.
According to Hermitage Executive Director
Bruce Rodgers, "We could not be more pleased
with our partnership with the Ringling Museum
of Art. Their Historic Asolo Theater in the perfect
setting to showcase the many wonderful Hermit-
age artists who share their art with the com-


munity. Grammy, Tony and Pulitzer Prize winners
are all among the artists who have accepted our
invitation to work at the Hermitage and who will
perform their "give-back' programs in the Historic
Asolo. Meeting these amazing people through
our work is always exciting. Sharing them with
the community makes the experience that much
richer and more meaningful."
The scheduled Historic Asolo Series begins on
Thursday with "I am Not a Photograph," presented
by Robert Blake, chair emeritus, General Studies
Program, International Center of Photography,
New York. Blake's "I am Not a Photograph" is a
commissioned 12-minute video that combines
photographs, voice (live), text and music in a per-
formative sequence. The images were selected
with special permission from the archive of the
International Center of Photography, NY. This will
be the second time this work will be screened
before the general public, which took months of
editing and assembly. The first showing was at
the "Rencontres d'Arles in Provence, France,
July 2005. The town of Arles is also home to the
National School of Photography (Ecole Nationale


Superieure de la Photograhie).
On Dec. 8, "Musical Treasure and Trash" will be
a program featuring Latin Grammy-winning com-
poser and virtuoso pianist, Gabriela Frank along
with creative musical team Carina Piaggio and
John Bertles for an evening of music, science and
humor. Gabriella's music reflects her fascination
with South American folklore, myth, and music.
Carina and John "bash trash," demonstrating how
they build, perform and educate using instru-
ments made from recycled materials. All have
worked with Yo-Yo Ma; Gabriela with the Kronos
quartet, the Aspen Music Festival, and the Los
Angeles Philharmonic. Bertles and Piaggio with
Max Roach, Mister Rogers and others.
Jan. 19 will present a trio of Hermitage Fellows
representing three art disciplines. American
composer Phil Kline is well known for his sound
sculptures, which include multiple boomboxes,
the most famous of which is Unsilent Night,
debuted in New York's Greenwich Village in 1992,
and continues to be performed around the world
during the winter solstice. Kline will introduce
us to his work and will be joined in a discussion


about art by visual artist Bradley Wester and Ken-
nedy Center teaching artist Judy Klevins.
There will be two February events. Feb. 2 fea-
tures Tony Award-winning playwright Arthur Kopit
who will read from his work and talk about what
he is presently writing while at the Hermitage.
On Feb. 16, musician and experimental com-
poser Bora Yoon will present her experimental
soundwork and new works from a forthcoming
record "Sunken Cathedral."Yoon has performed
at Lincoln Center, BAM, Bang on a Can, and was
presented by the Baryshnikov Art Center at the
Edinburgh International Arts Festival this year.
On March 15, the Hermitage Series at the Histor-
ic Asolo Theater will conclude its scheduled events
with Pulitzer-Prize winning composer Bernard
Rands who will offer a sampling of his new opera
"Vincent," based on the life of Vincent Van Gogh.
"Each year the list of artists working at the
Hermitage grows to include some of the most
important artists working today," continued Rodg-
ers. "We are very proud of our artists and would
be hard pressed to find more talented people to
share with our community"'

in 1990 and is made up of four distinct
groups, all extremely serious about writing.
According to the group's website their purpose is:
"To bring together in a professional setting per-
sons interested in the art of writing; to exchange
ideas, provide a support system and provide
helpful feedback and educational opportunities."
Three groups meet once a week at the Elsie
Quirk Library located at 100 West Dearborn St.,
Englewood and are members of the Friends of
the Elsie Quirk Library. Poets meet once a month
at the Englewood Art Center located at 350 S.
McCall Road, Englewood. A sub group, The Little
Band of Writers is made up of eight musicians
who write original songs and lyrics. They perform
during the holidays and at special events.Their
instruments include:two guitars, a clarinet, a
harmonica, a keyboard and bongo drums.
Author/musician Gaile Harpan writes'True Pet
Ballads, Inspirational Stories for all Ages." She's
also the publicity chairman for the Suncoast
Writers Guild.
The Suncoast Players, another sub group,
perform at holiday events and at Lemon Bay Fest,
History with Zest, a weeklong celebration of Engle-
wood History that takes place in February. Last year,
author/historian Jean Airey directed the Suncoast
Players in'The Case of the Crushed Conch," a clas-
sic murder mystery with musical interludes.
Ed Ellis, the group chairman, has been a writer
for only two years, but he is a passionate lover
and promoter of every aspect of the writer's craft.
He encourages members to write for "Inklings,"


the Suncoast Writers Guild's yearly publication,
or "Pen Points," a monthly newsletter edited by
Cheryl Baker. In his weekly reports Ellis empha-
sizes his belief that: "No writer is an island."
On the first Saturday of the month members
discuss business matters and decide future
programs. As the Englewood area draws writers
from all parts of the United States,
Over the past 10-12 years membership has
grown to as many as 76 members according to
Ann Favreau, membership chairman. Marion
Sheridan is the group's secretary, and Jean Airey
designs their website. Writers of longer works of
fiction or nonfiction meet on the second Saturday
of each month.
On the third Saturday of the month, a work-
shop offers the entire membership an opportunity
to read from their manuscripts, listen to what
others are writing and share ideas. Sharing ideas
in a non-threatening atmosphere builds trust
and offers encouragement to new writers and
published professionals.
Aspiring authors, journalists, essayists or po-
ets are invited to join the Suncoast Writers Guild.
For more information call the Suncoast Writers
Guild at: 313-549-8422 or 941-918-9737 or visit
the Guild's website at: http://scoastwriters.com
for program notes, pictures and lists of books
published by Guild Members.
At 10:30 a.m. Saturday, the public is invited to
hear writer Diane Robertson speak about the
writer's craft. She is the author of two books,
has published over 100 short stories and
teaches creative writing classes in Bradenton
and Sarasota. She also ghostwrites for private
clients.

minutes east of downtown Fort Myers, is
a wine tasting experience for novices and
connoisseurs alike. The Kiser family, led by first
generation owners Mildred and Earl Kiser, have
created seven different varieties of wine, from
their vineyards in central Florida. These wines
range from very dry to sweet, while including all
the tastes in between. They all can be sampled
in the tasting room of Eden Winery.
While producing the various wines has been a
labor of love for the Kiser family, it has also been
a challenge. "It was a long, hard effort.You don't
just plant vines and get grapes," Mildred explains.
"It takes years and years of work to produce qual-
ity wines." Starting their vineyard in the mid-'70s,
they didn't sell their own wines to the public from
the winery until the late '80s.
For nearly 20 years it was business as usual
for the Kiser family and the Eden Winery, then
disaster struck. "We had not had a hurricane here
in 44 years." In 2004, Hurricane Charley hit the
area, followed in 2005 by Hurricane Wilma. "It
wasn't the wind. It was the rain," Mildred remem-
bers sadly. "We were under water here for over
two weeks. We lost the vineyards."
It was decided not to replant the vineyard in
Alva because the land was too low. Instead, the
Kiser family continued to produce their grapes on
land they had in central Florida, land less suscep-
tible to water damage, while continuing the wine
tasting operation in Alva.
The wine tasting experience is filled with the
wonderful history of the Florida grape, including
how the French Huguenots brought over the first


European seedlings, and how the University of
Florida began work in the 1930s to save the vinif-
erous grape from a bug called a sharpshooter, in
the process developing the Kiser's current grape,
known as a viniferous hybrid.
Included in the wine tasting is an education
concerning the development of the type of wines,
the techniques employed to get the full enjoyment
of the wines, and the subtle differences between
the wines that are offered for purchase.
For only $2.50, the tasting includes all 7
wines that the Kiser family produces, from Lake
Emerald, the very dry wine, dry due to the very
small amount of sugar involved in the production
of the wine, to Eden Spice, a sweet dessert wine,
that many enjoy with the dinner meal because of
the sweetness.
Other wines include the medium dry Alva
White, a best seller popular for use with wedding
receptions and other group events, the latest
brand to be offered, Edelweiss, with a hint of
honeysuckle sweetness, Alva Rouge, the medium
dry wine that Mildred calls her spaghetti wine
because of its' natural pairing with pasta dishes,
as well as two other family brands.
Mildred Kiser refers to her family wines as
clean, crisp and refreshing. Take in the experi-
ence from one of the rocking chairs on the
porch and watch livestock graze in the nearby
fields.
The winery is open daily except major holidays
from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. with tasting starting at
11:30 a.m. and ending at 3:30 p.m. No reserva-
tions are required unless there are groups of 12
or more. For more information, call 239-728-9463.
Eden Winery is located at 19709 Little Lane, off
State Road 80, in Alva.

the week, he was able to maintain his full-time
job at the hospital."I didn't have a day off for two
straight years," Chef Rodney said.
After graduation from culinary school, he
gained some experience at Prime Time Steak &
Spirits and the Naples Beach Hotel. He joined the
Smuggler's group in 1997, and three years later,
was promoted to executive chef.
Now, life is good."I enjoy everything I do," he
said."It's not an easy career, but it is a great
adventure"
Chef Rodney ended up marrying Yvette, his
high school sweetheart, and they now have two
children that are 21 and 15. Only one of them
however, shares his passion for cooking. "My son
is into cooking," he said, "but my daughter is more
into law"
An executive chef's time off is valuable and
rare, especially for one who is responsible for
multiple restaurants, so Chef Rodney has some-
thing very specific in mind to accomplish on his
days off. "I like to relax in my free time," he said. "I
like to travel"
And how does he manage his executive chef
responsibilities between Laishley's Crab House, The
Captain's Table, Harpoon Harry's and John Hall's
Goal Post Grill? "It's not easy splitting the time," he
said, "but every restaurant has a good crew and a


good understanding of how we do things"'
Even though he devotes long hours to his job,
having that well-trained staff onboard allows Chef
Rodney to still get enjoyment out of the career
he worked so long and hard to achieve. He said
that when it comes to cooking, it comes from the
heart. "Everything you do, you do with passion
and pride"

Trying to catch up to Chef Rodney is not an
Since he is the executive chef for Smug-
gler's Enterprises, which owns several bars and
restaurants, he is a busy man. But Laishley Crab
House is where he spends the majority of his
time these days, having aided in the design and
development of the kitchen after the Smuggler's
group's acquisition of it.
Given all the time he devotes to it now, it's
somewhat surprising that when he was growing
up with his brother in Puerto Rico, Chef Rodney
was not all that interested in cooking."I didn't
decide to start cooking until I finished high school
and we moved to New York," he said.
In 1989, he moved from New York to Charlotte
County with his high school sweetheart and her
family. His first job upon his arrival was working at
Fawcett Hospital. "I became good friends with the
chef at the hospital," he said. "He saw the passion
I had for food"
What followed was a story right out of the
pages of a how-to-be-successful handbook. The
hospital chef allowed him to enroll in Johnson &
Wales University in Miami in a full-time weekend
program and attend classes there. And during

BY GORDON BOWER
SUN CORRESPONDENT

hard-working bands in Southwest Florida,
are getting a well-deserved big break.
A party band that plays high energy covers at
restaurants, nightclubs and major events like the
Punta Gorda Block Party, the group has been
chosen by former (1975-1983) Temptations lead
singer Glenn Leonard to tour in a major show
he is putting together called "Glenn Leonard
Presents Hitsville Live"
The Crashers' style and play list, featuring
skilled musicians and dynamic vocalists and a
lot of Motown, meshes well the concept of the
Hitsville show, which is aimed at covering all the
major Motown artists. The connection between
the local band and one of only four remaining
Temptations, however, came about as a result of
a mutual friendship.
Crashers' leader Loren Berry is good friends
with Leonard's booking agent, Cord Coslor,
owner of Celebrity Direct Entertainment. Coslor


suggested an experiment to see if The Crashers
and Leonard would work well together.
Leonard said, "Chemistry is everything up
there on stage. We started talking, and the
Hitsville concept, with more Motown, came about.
This is a success in the making"
He said of the show, "We are developing it
into a major production. It lets me cover all of the
major Motown stars. This is a massive produc-
tion props, wardrobe, the whole thing, not just a
bunch of songs. It's a show"'
Leonard was in town the week of Oct. 10-14
to rehearse with The Crashers and make a video
promoting the show at Mike Nickelson's studio on
Taylor road called The Barn.
Berry was ecstatic about the opportunity to
work with Leonard.
He said, 'This means a lot to us. It's what every
group works for getting out of the bar scene and
up toanother level.This is anational-level show"
The difference between working on songs
alone and with (show musical director) Ron
Hasley is a whole different game. We're learning


show presentation, theatrical and musical. We're
anxious but very excited about the opportunity"
Leonard said the show will be playing dates in
Florida from November through March includ-
ing a Sunday date at the Venice Community
center, Dec. 16 at the Cultural Center of Charlotte
County and Dec. 17 at the Englewood Elks club.
After March, dates are currently being booked


'We want to go international and also ulti-
mately take it to Vegas," Leonard said.
The Crashers don't plan to desert their home
base while touring. Berry said, "We're going to
work locally between tour stops. We love this
area, and we have some really great fans here"

anniversary. The restaurant and catering
business is conveniently located in Bell
Plaza at 2395 Tamiami Trail (between Midway
Boulevard and Forest Nelson on U.S. 41) in Port
Charlotte. Customers enjoy a comfortable, family
atmosphere and friendly service.
Geroy Neal, a native of Punta Gorda, has been
cooking barbecue for over 20 years, and loves to
feed everybody. He has created his own special
rub and makes all of his sauces from scratch.
"God has truly blessed me with the gift and
talent to cook barbeque," Geroy said."I'm very
grateful for my customers that have supported
me for so many years. My priority is to serve
good, fresh food and provide personal service."
Geroy's son, J.J., is the manager and chef, and
has worked with his father for 14 years. "My dad
taught me how to cook, and he's a great guy to
work with," J.J. stated.
"We want customers to come in hungry, and
leave full."
Indeed, customers will enjoy the generous
portions. Barbecue sliced pork, beef, turkey, ham
and chicken dinners are available. The meat
is smoked over real Oak. Dinners can also be
ordered as combos.
Each dinner is served with garlic toast and two


sides that include fried okra, onion rings, French
fries, potato salad, coleslaw, and BBQ beans.The
pork ribs dinner is especially popular.
The Sampler includes ribs, sliced pork, sliced
beef and one-quarter chicken more than
enough for two. The Family Feast offers the same
as the Sampler, except it includes
one-half chicken and four sides enough for
four people.
All meats are available for sandwiches served
on a hamburger bun or garlic toast and one side.
Hand patted burgers are offered; the BBQ burger
cooked with cheese and Big Geroy's special
sauce is must-try for burger lovers.
Even the salads are huge; the hamburger
salad has lettuce, tomato, onions, cheese, egg
and topped with an all beef patty.
The restaurant now has a liquor license so that
wine and beer can be enjoyed with the food. For
customers who wish to enjoy Big Geroy's BBQ
Sauce at home, it is available for purchase in
regular or hot.
Geroy's wife of 11 years, Johnanne, said."I
married Geroy and the business. I like working
with him and J.J., and I enjoy meeting people at
the restaurant and when I deliver to their homes
or businesses."
Big Geroy's BBQ caters weddings, picnics,
birthdays, meetings or any other special occasions.
"WIe can cater small or large events," Geroy said.

J.J., Johnanne and Geroy Neal are celebrating the one year anniversary of "Big Geroy's BBQ"at
the Bell Plaza, 2395 Tamiami Trail in Port Charlotte.


"How about a slow smoked ham or turkey for that
special Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner?"
"This is the best barbecue at reasonable prices
in Charlotte County" Joyce Johnson, a regular
customer, said."I eat here two or three times a
week. Sometimes, Johnanne prepares special
veggies like collard greens or green beans with
ham, or delicious desserts like sweet potato pie

or stolen, by grasping forearms.) It seems Henry
wants to commit suicide by beatdown but Will
saves Henry's life. In turn, Henry bequeathes
his time to Will, making him a very rich man and
sparking in him a desire for revenge against his
cruelly stratified society.
The whole thing is a fun brain-tease and
there are some clever touches (the poor shop at
99-second stores), even if it is reminiscent of the
'70s sci-fi film "Logan's Run" where life had to
end at the grand old age of 30. But "In Time" has
problems, ranging from the cosmetic (if everyone
stops aging at 25 why do so many here look like
they're in their mid-30s?) to the endemic (why
aren't there time banks, where everyone could
keep their minutes locked up instead of carrying
them around on their arms?).
Beyond that, once Will puts his plan in motion
- which involves ultimately absconding with
heiress Sylvia Weiss (Amanda Seyfried) and
trying to avoid capture by time-keeper (fancy word
for "cop") Raymond Leon (Cillian Murphy)- -"In
Time" becomes a generic cat-and-mouse thriller.
The result is a ham-fisted metaphor for our own
bifurcated society.
Timberlake is adequate in his first big leading-
man role and "Mad Men's"Vincent Kartheiser as
Sylvia's social-Darwinist, let-them-eat-seconds
dad is mildly entertaining. He's Ayn Rand without
the charm.
But the stiff Seyfried is a blank as Will's captive/
girlfriend. And Niccol, who made one of the best

Time is money literally in writer/direc-
Ttor Andrew Niccol's sleek "In Time," a film
where the retro-futuristic production design
(everyone drives mid-'60s Lincoln Continentals!
Cool!) is far more intriguing than the generic hash
that's made of its thought-provoking premise.
So just what would happen if one's wealth were
measured in minutes instead of moolah?
In this parallel universe, genetic engineering
has given mankind the gift of stopping the aging
process at the age of 25. Sounds great, right?
Well, there's the little problem of overpopulation,
and the powers-that-be get around that by man-
dating that everyone dies at 26 unless they can
beg, borrow, or steal more time. Minutes become
currency and how much you have left is digitally
etched into your arm, with the moments counting
down like a time bomb.
The wealthy, with decades at their disposal,
live like vampires, hanging on for a century and
never adding so much as a grey hair. The poor are
sectioned off in time-zone ghettoes, scrounging
for scrap minutes and dying young.
Will Salas (Justin Timberlake) is one of the
impoverished, living from hour to hour, when
he stumbles across rich Henry Hamilton (Matt
Bomer) in his neighborhood dive bar. Hamilton
is attracting the attention of local gangster Fortis
(Alex Pettyfer), who's interested in the 100 years
displayed on the man's arm. (Time can be traded,


Language and sexual content .
Queens native Josh Kovacs (Ben
Stiller) has managed one of the
most luxurious and well-secured
residences in New York City for more
than a decade. Under his watchful
eye, nothing goes undetected. In the
swankiest unit atop Josh's building,
Wall Street titan Arthur Shaw (Alan
Alda) is under house a rrest after being
caught stealing two billion from his
investors. The hardest hit among those
he defrauded? The tower staffers
whose pensions he was entrusted to
manage. With only days before Arthur
gets away with the perfect crime,
Josh's crew turns to petty crook Slide
(Eddie Murphy) to plan the nearly

sure is hidden in Arthur's guarded
condo. Though amateurs, these rookie
thieves know the building better than
anyone. Turns out they've been casing

sci-fi movies of the'90s with "Gattaca," should've
done a better job of disguising contemporary
Los Angeles, whose areas near downtown are
supposed to be Will's squalid neighborhood called
Dayton while the Century City district subs for
swanky New Greenwich. It's too easy to be pulled
out of this alternate reality when so many of the


streetscapes look like the ones seen on nearly
every TV cop show.
Ultimately, it's too bad "In Time's" temporal
technology doesn't exist. After all, in our world,
the movie's 109 minutes are nearly two hours that
viewers will never be able to cash in or get back.
