A car crash that took
the life of a 17-year-old
on Monday is now being
handled as a hit-and-run
case, according to the Ven-
ice Police Department.
Kristina Elisabet Kon-
ovalov died after a high-
speed, single-vehicle car
crash around 12:40 p.m.
Monday at the North By-
pass intersection.
Police now believe Kon-
ovalov had left the scene of
a fender bender.
According to officer Andre


Levesque, Konovalov was
inVOlVed in a lane-change
collision on West Venice
Avenue just prior to the fatal
crash a half mile away. She
stopped at the intersection,
but when the person whose
vehicle was allegedly hit
knocked on her window, the
light changed and Kon-
ovalov turned north onto
U.S. 41 Business, according
to Levesque.
Konovalov drove across
the Hatchett Creek Bridge
and was attempting to
turn onto U.S. 41 Bypass
into the southbound lanes
when the crash took place.


Levesque estimated the
vehicle was going at least
50 mph in the 30 mph zone
as it entered the curve.
The Oldsmobile SUV she
was driving, owned by her
stepfather, jumped the
curb and crashed into an
embankment that ejected
her from the vehicle, which
rolled over her. She was
not wearing a seat belt. Ko-
novalov was pronounced
dead at the scene.
Bypass traffic was di-
verted for two hours. The
school issued an alert to

Teen court offers

second chances

By ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER

Several nights a month,
courtrooms in Sarasota
County are filled after normal
business hours with teenagers
having their day in court as
part of local teen court pro-
grams. For some of them, it is
an opportunity to start over.
On a recent Monday ses-
sion for Sarasota County teen
court, held in South Venice,
four cases were presented.
Teen attorneys meet to review
their cases, and actual pro-
ceedin s be in at 6 p.m
"The kids doa tremendous
job, as do all the adults and
judges who help," said Katie
Self, executive director of the
Teen Court of Sarasota County
for almost 23 years. "And we've
added some services, but it
all goes back to positive peer
pressure."
She said they receive about
500 delinquency referrals each
year. Teens are required to
be respectful. There is also a
dress code.
"One young lady, we gave
her a skirt and she wouldn't
put it on," Self said. "She
wanted to show her belly, so
we sent her home. That's part
of the learning curve.
Sarasota County's program
is grant funded. Self, lets the
teen lawyers decide what side
to take.
"I love them to take the
leadership," she said.

"I'm keeping up with what
kids are getting into," Boone
said. "I like watching the at-
torneys and bailiff participate.
They're good kids. And hope-
fully (the program) is helping
the defendants in the long
run."
In Venice, Self usually ad-
dresses the defendants before
proceedings begin, advising
them to respect their parents,
obey state laws and complete
their education.
"It's really important you
young people understand this
opportunity will be as good as
you make it. We don't sprinkle


fairy dust," she said. "It's criti-
cal that you learn your juve-
nile record stays with you."
Once they've completed
their punishment, the charge
will remain with them for life,
Self explained, but the nota-
tion will be on their record
that the charge was dismissed.

The city was hoping to
safely remove a population of
nearly a dozen coyotes from
Venice Municipal Airport
property after a series of at-
tacks on pets and concerns
raised by people who frequent
the island.


Now it looks like they'll have
to be euthanized. That's easier
said than done.
Wildlife Center Director
Kevin Barton told city staff he
has serious doubts the wily
coyote population can be suc-
cessfully removed. Trapping is
difficult, with many raccoons,
fox and other wildlife being
snared instead.


Federal law prohibits relo-
cating coyotes after capture as
they're considered a nui-
sance non-native animal that
migrated from the western
United States to Florida, ac-
cording to Barton.
He said the coyote has out-
competed foxes and other
predators for food.
Acting City Manager Nancy


Woodley said there have been
several recent sightings on
the island and at the airport.
Residents have aired concerns
over missing pets.
City staff estimate there are
approximately nine at or near
the airport; two near Bella-
gio; and four adults and two

County (
By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

County residents are confused
by a proposed charter amend-
ment on term limits, while
members of the local Republican
club back an amendment voters
approved 13 years ago.
The executive committee of
the Republican Party of Sara-
sota County passed by a 97-2
vote Thursday a resolution that
county commissioners "shall
respect the will of the people
and retain/defend and abide by
the voter-initiated and approved
eight-year term limit."
"The Republican Party sup-
ports the will of the voters," RPOS
Chair Joe Gruters said in an


downtown Sarasota.
Her four Chrysler Gems,
14-foot-long, low-speed
(golf-cart-like), electric
vehicles operate on local
roads at up to 25 mph.
"There's not a parking
problem," said O'Brien,
who came here from New
Jersey two years ago. "It's
just very inconvenient (to
drive). I just figured out a
solution. I fell in love with
the local community, and
I just felt it was a great
service to give back."
O'Brien claims that
Green Hopper takes almost
1,000 cars off local roads
each month, which helps
the environment.
Her business serves "a


niche that wasn't being
served," Sarasota County
sustainability manager
Lee Hayes Byron said. "If
you look at the Siesta Key
Village on a Friday night,
there are all these tourists
who wouldn't normally
need a rental car but they
are too tired after a day at
the beach (to walk)."
O'Brien was one of
about 30 people who
participated in a Sustain-
able Sarasota Community
Partnership monthly meet-
ing at which interested
citizens, businesses and or-
ganizations share projects
they have been working on
or what they are interested
in. For this meeting, coun-


ty officials featured their
Energy Upgrade program
that will help residents
learn about ways to save
energy and money in
their homes. One of the
organizers' goals is to help
people begin to think of
their homes as systems.
"People aren't sure where
to start," said Marianne
King, vice president of
Staples Marketing Com-
munications of Pewaukee,
WTis., a county consultant.
"How do you save your
energy use, starting from
the outside and working
in? Get yourself more ac-
quainted with ways to save
energy."
Funded by $155,000


from a federal grant, the
program will promote in-
formation through a com-
prehensive website (www.
energyupgradetoday.com) ,
social media, workshops at
home-improvement stores
and homeowners' associa-
tions, printed material and
broadcast advertising.
"The information is
there, and it will be coming
in different forms in the
future," Byron said. "The
door is open for more
people to ask for us to
come to them and give a
presentation and do the
'Ask-the-Pro' workshops."
Through the program,
county officials say
residents willbe able to im-


prove their knowledge, seal
the leaks in their homes,
find room-by-room oppor-
tunities to save energy and
money and access financial
incentives to save energy.
"Think about it," said
Troy Larkin, Tri-County Air
Conditioning & Heating
community liaison. "An
air-conditioner that is
10 or 15 years old just
changing out to the lowest
standard today is going to
save you money. Of course,
that does not always fix the
problem. Educating people
to fix their duct leaks will
save them money in the
long run. That's just one of
many things you can do."

County commission-
ers did not act on a
request last week that
a memorial plaque
remain indefinitely
near Marcott Circle
on Wilkinson Road in
north Sarasota County.
The plaque honors four
teenagers who were
killed nearby in a March
crash and was placed
by family members who
spent approximately
$1,6()( to have the me-
morial constructed and
installed.
The issue failed for
lack of a second
on a motion by
Commissioner Carolyn
Mason that the memo-
rial stay in place indefi-
nitely. By not acting on
the request, the commis-
sioners effectively are
agreeing to the families'
request for a perpetual
placement.
The marker's time-
line was contested
by the Homeowners
Association of Seville
Condominiums, which
said it wants the me-
morial removed at the
end of a year under
current county policy.
The marker is placed on
a county right of way,
near where the accident
occurred, in front of
the walled subdivision
and within sight of its
entrance.
However, the initial


request for a memorial,
made by Stacey Monroe,
mother of one of the de-
ceased teens, was made
at the end of March. The
resolution establishing
a marker policy relating
to size and placement
duration was adopted on
July 26.
Seven citizens, includ-
ing two parents of the
deceased teens, spoke
on the issue during the
public comment portion
at the beginning of the
meeting.
During the discussion,
a majority of the board
acknowledged the me-
morial, which contains
the names and pictures
of the four teens, should
be grandfathered in.
They noted the county
can, at its discretion,
have the marker removed
"due to construction,
maintenance or safety
purposes," as noted in
the resolution.
Commissioners
admitted the issue
was "emotional" and
had caused them to
go back and forth in


their opinions. In their
comments, they said
they hope the parents
of the deceased teens
would work with the
homeowners associa-
tion toward an amicable
agreement, and sug-
gested the families agree
someday to move the
marker to another area,
such as a public park
or the schools the teens
attended.
At the end of the
agenda item discussion,
commission Chair Nora
Patterson said she had
visited the site and asked
the families to consider
moving the marker back
from the street and
about 3() to 4() feet away
from the subdivision
entrance.
"If the parents want
to place (the memorial)
nearby in a public park,
we'll work with you,"
Patterson said of the
commission and county
staff. She said leaving the
issue "open-ended (is)
the best we can do."

SUN NEWSPAPERS 5A


By GREG MARTIN
STAFF WRITER

Drafted to comply
with the federal 1972
Clean Water Act, Florida's
existing rule limiting
the amount of nutrients
- such as fertilizer and
sewage that people
can discharge into state
waters comes in the form
of a simple statement.
"In no case shall nutri-
ent concentrations of a
body of water be altered
so as to cause an imbal-
ance in natural popula-
tions of flora or fauna," it
states.
Converting that state-
ment into a numeric
nutrient standard, as
the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency has
mandated to resolve a
2008 lawsuit by Earth
Justice, however, has
proven anything but
simple.
After 10 years of trying,
the Florida Department
of Environmental
Protection now believes
it has the answer. The
DEP which petitioned
to take over drafting
the numeric nutrient
standard from the EPA
in March, proposed a
standard Nov. 3 that
includes numerical limits
for the loads of nutrients
beyond which ecological
harm would result.
The loads have been
calculated for streams
based on data for similar


reference water bod-
ieS within each of six
regions in the state. For
the Charlotte Harbor,
Sarasota Bay and
Tampa Bay estuaries,
the limits are based on
site-specific proposals
by the National Estuary
Programs for those water
bodies.
The DEP also has
determined some mini-
mum scores on biologi-
cal health assessment
tests for various water
bodies. Ones that get
test results below those
scores would be set for
further evaluations.
After just one public
workshop, held Oct. 4 in
Estero, the DEP pre-
sented its proposed rules
to the Environmental
Regulator Commission
Nov. 4. If the commission
approves them at a hear-
ing Dec. 8, they would
go before the Legislature
for ratification as early as
January.
"If you look at nutrient
rules across the nation,
this one is more com-
prehensive than any,"
said Drew Bartlett, DEP
resource assessment
division director.
Several environmental
groups, however, see the
DEP's proposed rule as
a Trojan horse. Instead
of strict limits on nutri-
ent pollution, it merely
provides "thresholds,"
pointed out Jennifer
Hecker, policy director


for the Conservancy of
Southwest Florida. And it
allows those thresholds
to be "routinely exceed-
ed" before any remedia-
tion will occur, she said.
She pointed out that
once the thresholds are
reached, water bodies are
placed on either a "plan-
ning list" to determine
the cause and suggest
remedies, or a "study list"
to determine whether the
environment has been
harmed.
Harm is verified when
an algal bloom has
occurred that's severe
enough to create a
"nuisance" or hinder the
reproduction of endan-
gered species, according
to the draft regulation.
Once a water body is
listed as "impaired," and
the cause is determined,
the DEP would establish
a management plan.
Such a plan could call for
industries, sewer plants,
farms or residential com-
munities to curb their
wastes.
Hecker said the state's
existing narrative stan-
dard represents a proac-
tive policy: Nutrient
pollution shall not be
allowed to alter the
ecosystem.
The state's numeric
threshold rule, however,
calls for remedial actions
only after waters are
impaired. That's reactive,
she argues.
"In most instances,


they would require the
biological systems to
completely fail before
anything was done," she
said.
She also cites that the
rule calls levels of the
nutrients phosphorus
and nitrogen to be rep-
resented as an "annual
geometric mean." That
method is designed to
"smooth out" extremes.
Other clauses exclude
data taken during climat-
ic or seasonal weather
cycles, or extreme
events like droughts or
hurricanes.
"So, if you exclude the
data from when you're
likely to see the problem,
you're not going to see
the problem," Hecker
said.
The exclusion of data
during such extremes
makes sense to Bartlett,
however.
"Hurricanes in Florida
are very frequent," he
said. "You don't want to
regulate for such events.
There's a societal cost.
What (the draft rule)
will allow is natural
fluctuation."
Most important,
Hecker said, the rule
contains no time limits
for the state to conduct
the assessments required
for water bodies on
either the planning or
study lists. The rule also
contains no DEP funding
for the assessments.
That puts the water


bodies on the lists in
"purgatory," she said.
Hecker described the
rule as a "wholesale re-
treat" in Florida environ-
mental regulation.
"Sadly, it is an indica-
tion of the enormous
pressure they're under,"
she said. "There's just
this whole anti-EPA thing
going on out there."
Cris Costello of the
Sierra Club said she
questions how the DEP
was able to draft estua-
rine rules in just a couple
of months after only
One public workshop. It
took the EPA 10 months
to draft its rule for fresh
waters.
The DEP seems to have
merely adopted the pro-
posals from the Charlotte
Harbor, Sarasota Bay
and Tampa Bay national
estuary programs, "lock,
stock and barrel" with
scant review, Costello
said.
Also, the way the EPA
quickly handed the rule-
making back to the DEP
makes it seem as if "(the)
EPA has decided to wash
its hands of the entire is-
sue and let (the) DEP do


what is politically expedi-
ent," Costello said.
The Mosaic phos-
phate company, which is
strip-mining in the Peace
River watershed, made
numerous suggestions
about how to improve
the rule in letters to the
DEP. The rule "appears
to be, in many respects,
well founded on avail-
able science," wrote a
Mosaic official in one of
the letters.
Protect Our Watershed
president Jim Cooper
of Englewood, however,
said the rule-making
reminds him of the Army
slogan: "Be all you can
be." Except, he said,
Florida seems to be say-
ing: "Be less than you can
be."
State Sen. Mike
Bennett, R-Bradenton,
said he was unfamiliar
with the proposed rule
and couldn't comment
on its details. However,
he expressed confi-
dence that the DEP can
regulate Florida waters
better than the federal
government can,

Although it doesn't open
until Monday, Dec. 12, the new
Bonefish Grill, is already hav-
ing an impact on this area, said
Kirk Tyree, managing partner.
He has received more than
500 applications for service
positions and 100 for kitchen
staff.
The contractor expects to
hand over the keys to com-
pleted restaurant in 10 days,
ahead of schedule. Tyree says
it will open with 95 employees,
and he has already hired 54.
Staffing will eventually level off
at 55 people.
He describes a pretty unique
addition to Venice, featuring an
outside patio with nine tables
surrounded by vegetation and
landscaping at the northern
end of the restaurant. Inside
are 178 seats, with 20 facing the
long city bar; three community
tables seating eight to 10; and
the dining area.
You can already visit www.
bonefishgrill.com to view the
menu to be featured at the
Venice location. Chicken and
steak are available in addition
to a daily selection of fresh


although a little different from
the normal dining operation,
allowing the kitchen to cook all
those items and the servers to
meet the guests."
He grew up in Panama City,
Fla., starting his restaurant ca-
reer with Outback Steakhouse,
part of OSI Restaurants, which
includes Bonefish Grill. Start-
ing as a server, then moving
to bartender and through the
kitchen, he made it to entry-
level management in five years.
Joining Stonewood Grill in
2000, he opened five restau-
rants and became the operating
partner of the Stickney Point
location in Sarasota, staying
for more than seven years until
taking this opportunity to join
Bonefish Grill as operating
partner, returning to his roots.
He is very excited about
opening the new Venice loca-
tion, thinking it will be a good
fit given the nature of the com-
munity, the Bonefish Grill con-
cept and what people expect
out of Southwest Florida.
Before the end of 2011 the
company will be adding five
new locations to its existing
152, and it hopes to have 26
new grills open next year.

The former Three
Crowns Store, 323 WT.
Venice Ave., has been
acquired by a Venice
resident.
"The building is go-
ing to be rehabilitated
completely to be very
modern," said Tony
Andrews, owner/broker
of Andrews & Associates
Realty of Sarasota.
The buyer is a


three-year Venice resi-
dent who understands
it is going to take a lot of
capital to upgrade the
property, said Andrews.
She wants to make the
building very modern
while paralleling the
Venetian architectural
appearance of the nearby
Coldwell Banker offices.
Built in 1977, the prop-
erty has 5,750 square
feet on two floors. Plans
are for two retail stores
on the first floor and a


residence on the second
floor.
"In respect to the
downtown businesses,
particularly those which
have recently been up-
graded, we are looking
for really great tenants
who will add benefits to
this beautiful commu-
nity," Andrews said.
An architect has been
hired and when plans
are approved the inten-
tion is to start work
immediately.


Vanderville Beach Re-
sorts of Naples acquired
the building in October
2003 and announced
plans to open the Historic
Turtle Club ofVenice a
year later. Spokesperson
Peter Tierney said the
project would mirror a
similar successful restau-
rant they had created in
Naples, with the Venice
operation to follow the
completion of a similar
Turtle's restaurant in
Punta Gorda.


The project was de-
layed to 2005 after Hurri-
cane Charley, which dev-
astated Punta Gorda and
damaged Naples. The
company later put the
property up for sale and
it has remained empty as
surrounding owners have
renovated and improved
their properties.
Venice MainStreet is
thrilled by the sale of
the long-empty build-
ing, which has stood out
while the occupancy rate


in downtown Venice has
stayed strong through
the last five years.
"WTe congratulate the
new owner and look
forward to working with
her as she makes the
investment of time and
money to bring the Three
Crowns back to life as
both a retail space and a
residence," said Mindy
Pieper, executive director
of Venice MainStreet Inc.

Reid used the word

times when answering

Reid said the commis-

procurement issue. How-
ever, he warned, "(Con-

that to be done."
Although the position is
being offered to Reid, the
process will not be over
until salary negotiations
are concluded. No date

commissioner votes in the
first straw poll to Reid's
four, is next in line for the
job should negotiations

public health-care systems
across Florida, some of which
operate efficiently and some of which
most likely don't. In Sarasota County,
we consider ourselves fortunate to
have one that does.
That's why we're wary of recom-
mendations being considered by the
Florida Commission on Review of
Taxpayer-Funded Hospital Districts.
Suggestions for increased efficien-
cies and accountability are always
welcome, but we'd hate to see the
state shift the playing field to such an
extent that it cripples what is now a
relatively effective system for deliver-
ing health care in the region. At what
cost reform?
From the outset we've been skeptical
about the mission of this commission,
created by Gov. Rick Scott last spring.
"Taxpayer-funded hospital districts"
was an obviously loaded phrase; "pub-
lic" would have worked just fine.
Then, Scott's executive order
called for a wide-ranging review of


whether "tax-supported and non-
tax-supported government-operated
hospitals operate competitively with
non- government- op erate d ho spitals
while utilizing the benefit of taxes,
enhanced Medicaid reimbursement
and subsidies for losses." Again,
loaded language from the former CEO
of the private, for-profit Columbia/
HCA hospital chain, especially in light
of Scott's past statements disparaging
nonprofit, "non-taxpaying hospitals."
Reports last week keyed on a rec-
ommendation that public hospital
systems be subject to public votes in
order to continue. On the face of it,
that sounds like a perfectly reason-
able, democratic approach. But what
purpose would it serve, really?
For the past six decades Sarasota
Memorial Health Care System has
been governed by an elected public
hospital board. Citizens have every
opportunity to run and mount vigor-
ous campaigns for board seats. While
elections are commonly low-key
affairs, they still hold the possibility


that taxpayers can influence taxing
and spending decisions. Meetings are
open to the public. That's one big plus
of the "public," taxpayer-supported
system.
As for a referendum itself, we can
only imagine the superficial circus
that would ensue as private hospital
chains challenge the "taxpayer-fund-
ed" districts and district supporters
fight back. A boon for the direct mail
business and media advertising, for
sure, but little else,
The commission also is consider-
ing whether funding should be used
strictly for indigent care, and public
money should follow patients no mat-
ter where they receive care.
The commission apparently has
data showing public hospitals have
higher costs roughly 10 percent -
compared to private hospitals. Again,
that sounds reasonable. But Sarasota
Memorial already provides 90 percent
of the county's Medicaid services and
more than 60 percent of services to
uninsured patients.


In addition, public hospitals pro-
vide expensive services that private
hospitals don't and won't. Sarasota
Memorial is the only county hospital
that provides obstetrical care and
neonatal care. It runs an emergency
room psychiatric unit and provides
other unprofitable specialized services
because the needs exist. That is the
hospital's mission.
In counties without public hospitals,
such as Charlotte, local government
also spends large sums on indigent
care, via hospital payments. The differ-
ence is that Sarasota's approach allows
far more public participation, espe-
cially in decisions that affect the overall
health care delivery system. For proof,
we need only look back to the success-
ful public campaign that resulted in
the opening of the North Port Emer-
gency Room and Outpatient Center.
The public hospital system here
works. There may be ways for it to
work better, but we should be very
careful of changes that might make it
work worse.


or something. (OK, I had to do
that and will give Bob the dol-
lar now for the next meeting.)
Thanks for having me.
Wow, Wake Up, Venice! is a
rocking event and it happens
at, like, 7:30 a.m. in the morn-
ing. I visited the one being
held at the hospital and boy,
we were so close to witness-
ing the rare, yet entertaining
presentation of the "YMCA"
dance performed by Peter
Wozniak. I enjoyed the experi-
ence and absolutely love the
way this group has fun every
second of the meeting. (Yes,
they handle business as well).
The Laurel Civic Center is
a magical place where kids'
minds come alive. Sandra
Terry has the challenging role
of providing the electricity,
water, food and all that falls
into the miscellaneous col-
umn to help the community
and those children for whom
she cares deeply. If you want
to see and feel the magic one
day, take a ride over and just
watch as the bus unloads and
the children light up as they
catch the eye of either San-
dra or one of her dedicated
staff members. I know that
as I watched I was amazed.
Thanks, Ms. Terry and staff,
for all you do.
I ran into Mary Lou and
Gladys on Saturday, both of
whom are affiliated with the
Venice Area Garden Club. It
started as a quick introduction
at Sandy's Designer Clothing
store; however, it ended up
being a great couple of hours
of interesting conversation.
We ended up in "Kerri's'
House of Gems We Buy
and Sell Everything WhenWe
Decide To, Come In" store.
(That's a joke, folks.) Kerri's
Jewels and Gems is the name.
Joel and Kerri know how to
treat folks over there, and I
must thank them for putting
up with us.
My point is this: In life there
are two types of people when
it comes to this type of stuff
- those who criticize and
those who participate. The
critic gets the most attention,
the volunteer gets the most
accomplished.
Which one would you
want assisting you and your
community?

Calling out around the
world, or just in the vicinity
of Venice, we are in need of
decorated boats and dona-
tions for the 23rd annualVen-
ice Christmas Boat Parade.
This event benefits Venice
youth boating and really puts
a Florida Christmas on display
for a few hours. As with all
of our events, this will draw
people from far and wide,
and I am absolutely sure our
community spirit, pride and
drive will not let the specta-
tors down.
My hope is that we find a
way to double the entries thus
far. Please visit www.venice
christmasboatparade.com to
get more info. We all know
times are tight, so pair up with
neighbors and let's get this
floating wonderland back on
track. Your support is always
appreciated.
What's next? My friend
Harrison Williams did me a
favor that I will never be able
to repay by inviting me to
the 20th anniversary Senior
Friendship Centers dinner.
It was absolutely incredible
to go back in time and watch
how this amazing facility was
put together.
Equally impressive is the
hard work that goes on there
to make this venue even more
special today. To the folks that
just give without reservation
over there, we say Thank You!
I look forward to the live tour
and am grateful that Harrison
remembered Deb and me for
that special night.
I went to a Venice-Nokomis
Rotary Club meeting with
Mr. Mudge and found this
group of citizens to be very
entertaining yet serious about
getting things done. Don't be
late over there as it will cost
you a dollar. As a matter of
fact, Jeff Boone can find a dol-
lar for just about anything he
puts his mind to. He should
look into becoming a lawyer


Flagging. I'm calling about
the flag that's supposed to be
flying in front of the Furniture
Warehouse near the Nissan
dealership. It's a disgrace to
have that flag so torn and faded
and no white on it at all. I wish
they would replace the flag.
Some pull. To those who
call in to complain about the
weeds and such on Venetian
Waterway Park, a suggestion:
If you are out there to get ex-
ercise, why not bring a plastic
bag and pull the weeds as you
pass by? This would save us
taxpayers who do not use the
path some money, you would
get your exercise and the path
would be beautiful.
Too old. This is about the
person who called in about
Googling to get information:
Not all of us are able to use
computers and many of us are
just plain too old.
Bandwagon. I'm calling
about getting on the band-
wagon to buy U.S.A. I went out
shopping the last few days and
it's hard to find goods made in
the U.S.A. Please, everybody,
demand U.S.A. goods from
our stores. How can we keep
America going if our stores are
selling goods made in China,
Indonesia, the Philippines?
Our major chain stores, please
get on the bandwagon and
demand U.S.A. goods.
More to it. I just read your
article on Tom Slaughter, city
ofVenice, and it's very hard to
believe that a person under
investigation who voluntarily re-
signs under allegations of sexual
harassment and a hostile work
environment gets a severance
package in today's economy. It's
unheard of. Greg Giles should
do a little bit better in his inves-
tigation because I know there is
more to the story than what he
said. Maybe a records request of
the notes would help him out.
Editor's Note: Under the
circumstances, we made an
editorial decision not to print


Police Department and they
said they would send someone
over to check on the validity of
the card that this woman held.
No one ever showed up. How
do we get the police and doc-
tors to help us police this situ-
ation, which is out of control?
Fantasies. I'd like to respond
to Barbara Walker, who was
talking about the fantasies
that we teach children. She
was concerned about the little
boy who believed in guardian
angels. But what about the fan-
tasy of Santa Claus, the Easter
Bunny, Halloween, the Tooth
Fairy. Come on. There are all
kinds of fantasies. So, Miss
Walker, we do have guardian
angels; and if that little boy
killed himself because of risky
stuff, where were his parents?
They should have taught him
common sense. It isn't because
Epiphany Cathedral's group
teaches them guardian angels.
I thank God I have a guardian
angel and my children do too.
Help wanted. I'm a volunteer
trying to restore the Venice
Circus Arena. You had an article
about the donations that Gulf
Coast Community Foundation
had recently given out. They to-
talled more than $651,000, and
I'm wondering when we get a
share of these donations. The
Circus Foundation of Sarasota
got more than $50,000. How
about us here in Venice? We
are trying to make the area a
vital part of~renice, have many
potential activities planned
and need some money now.
How about our share? When do
we get a donation? How much
can the city of Sarasota help us
restore this eyesore? It's been
too many years that this whole
piece of valuable property has
been neglected. We're trying to
do something valuable for the
city and we need help. We have
the heart to do the work, but
we do need funds. Please assess
our situation and do something
about it.

SUN NEWSPAPERS 11A


WThat we need is tar-
geted, low-cost reforms
focused specifically on
improving our teacher
COrps. The drive to save
money is also an oppor-
tunity to make schools
better and more efficient.
Even in the lowest-spend-
ing districts, a passionate
teacher with administra-
tive support can change
students' lives. Likewise,
an apathetic teacher at
the most luxurious insti-
tution will leave students
cold.
And regardless of politi-
cal affiliation, reform-
ers generally agree that
high-quality educators
are essential to an excel-
lent education. There are
options available to move
us in the right direction.
For starters, eliminate
seniority-based employ-
ment practices. Although
teachers unions like
seniority systems, they
have little to do with
student achievement.
For instance, a recent
study found 36 percent of
teachers fired in a Seattle


district were more effec-
tive than the teachers
whose jobs weren't at risk.
Firings, hirings and
promotions should be
merit-based. We must
focus on quality of
instruction. The right
approach will be some
combination of student
surveys, administrator
in-class evaluations and
performance on stan-
dardized tests.
Next, empower prin-
cipals. Too often they're
restricted by employment
policies insensitive to
their particular school.
Treat principals like CEOs
by giving them freedom
to customize teacher
policies. Principals need
access to data on student
performance. And they
must be able to select
and evaluate their teach-
ers and influence their
salaries.
Running a school is
similar to running a
business principals
manage a diverse work-
force, balance revenues
and expenses, anticipate


demand and make other
businesslike decisions.
Yet principals and
superintendents know
little about best manage-
ment practices. Whether
through MBA programs
or custom-tailored
courses, school leaders
need a better business
education.
Finally, expand tech-
nology in the classroom.
Some public schools in
New York City, Chicago,
Virginia and California
have already adopted
iPads as teaching tools.
Today's students have only
known a world of fast,
Web-connected devices.
Classrooms have to
evolve accordingly. Inno-
vative online tools like the
Khan Academy have been
successfully integrated in
some classrooms. These
tools need wider use. Far
from marginalizing teach-
ers, they free teachers for
one-on-one instruction.
Unfortunately, these
promising reforms are
often ignored by those
who see the school crisis


as simply a money prob-
lem. That thinking is off
the mark.
In real dollars, between
1920 and 2008 spend-
ing per public school
pupil jumped from less
than $1,000 to more
than $10,000. Adjusted
for inflation, that's triple
what it was 50 years ago.
Much of that influx has
gone to teacher compen-
sation. Since 1960, aver-
age public schoolteacher
pay climbed, in real
dollars, from $35,000 to
$50,000 a 42 percent
increase. Yet reading
and math scores on the
National Assessment of
Educational Progress
have been almost flat
for four decades. And
America still scores about
20 points below the inter-
national average in math
and science.
There was a time when
American students could
underperform in school
and still land a reasonably
well-paid job. The rise
of the hypercompetitive
global economy changed


that. Many of the current
49 million public school
students will graduate -
if they graduate -
ill-equipped for the
cognitive-heavy work
composing most of the
American job market.
The future prosperity
of our nation hinges on
school reform. If policy-
makers strengthen our
teacher corps, we'll save
not only wasteful spend-
ing but also the shame
of handicapping young
Americans with a poor
education.
We tried spending vast
sums of money. Now, in
today's budget environ-
ment, it's time to focus
spending on more cost
effective ways to pro-
vide an education to all
students.

It's time to rethink education re ormz


J AMES
G UT HRIE
GUEST COLUMNIST

As budget crises deepen
across the country, many
fear that education fund-
ing could be put on the
chopping block. If school
budgets are reduced, will
it be possible to get a
high-quality education in
public schools?
The simple answer is
yes. A high-quality educa-
tion might be priceless in
today's economy. But it
doesn't have to be overly
expensive.
In this recession, nearly
every state has cut ser-
vices. And approximately
three dozen states have
slowed K-12 education
spending. If we operate
under the assumption
that primary and second-
ary education have to be
expensive to be good, we
will be needlessly trad-
ing quality for austerity
and thereby shortchange
students.

Venice's Conner Jones lets his
actions do the talking.
The 5-foot-10, 175-pound
inside linebacker for the Indians,
who admits to being extremely
quiet, uses his ability to read
offenses and his tackling skills in
helping lead Venice's defense in
his senior season.
The first-time starter is making
the most of his final season.
"Senior year is about the best
motivation I've got right now,"
said Jones. "It's my last year I will
probably play football. I just go
out and give it all I've got because
I am not going to have any other
chances."
Last year he was a back-up and
played sparingly, with just 16 tack-
les and one interception.
However, in that limited time
he did get the attention of the
coaches.
"He caught our eye last year,"


said Venice coach
lOhn Peacock. "He
was really under-
sized but he made
plays."
This year, Jones
added an inch
in height and 25
pounds in weight. JONES
"We knew he was
going to be one of our better play-
ers coming back," said Peacock.
"He hasn't disappointed. He's
played well all year."
The 18-year-old is second on the
team in total tackles.
On the season, Jones has 44
solo tackles and 27 assists with a
caused fumble and three passes
defensed.
"He's very quiet," said Peacock.
"He doesn't say a whole lot. He
always does his job and is a smart
kid. He is a very good tackler and
has the nose for the football. He
just finds the football. He gets
there and usually makes a good
tackle. He is tough kid and brings


it every time he makes the tackle.
He knows how the defense works.
His intelligence (a 4.3 GPA) really
helps him a lot on the football
field as far as knowing what they
are trying to do him and getting to
the ball."
His ability to read offenses is
also a plus for Jones.
"Reading (offenses) has become
second nature to me," said Jones,
who has always been a linebacker.
"I can feel where the ball is going
and I get quick reads. I can tell
exactly where the ball is going."
"He gets to and finds the ball
and does a good job of it," said
Peacock.
How does Jones' quietness
translate on the field?
"It helps with penalties, that is
for sure," joked Jones. "You never
see me talking back to the other
team or the refs."
Jones keeps to himself and lis-
tens to his iPod before the game.
"I just go over the plays in my
head and get in my own zone,"


said Jones. "I don't like to talk
before a game or during it. I just go
out and play."
Jones said his mind is blank on
the field until the first hit.
"By the first hit everything
comes back to me," said Jones. "I
am just thinking of my respon-
sibilities and the plays that are
going on."
Jones thinks Venice's defense is
stronger this year.
"I honestly feel we are more
tenacious and swarm to the
football a lot better than last
year," said Jones. "This is the best
defense I have ever played on."
Jones' dad, Marvin, got him
started in football at age 6 in
Indiana.
"He played high school football
and got me started and I loved
it," said Jones, who moved to
Venice as a sophomore.
It's the hitting Jones enjoys.
"I love big hits," said Jones. "I

With mixture of all
grades, this year's version
of the Venice High girls
basketball team willbe de-
fining itself as the season
goes on.
The varsity roster
includes four seniors, two
juniors, one sophomore
and four freshmen.
"When you have a
diversified age group like I
got, it's always going to be a
work in progress," said Ven-
ice head coach John Flynn.
"At the end of the day we
might not be as skilled but
we willbe together and a
team. We've never had that
there in my years."
Venice returns five
players from last season
- seniors Laura Hackett,
Hannah Revels, Brooke
Shipps, Maggie Flynn,
MariaArmato Barrone.
Hackett, Revels and Flynn
started last year.
The five combined
scored 437 points last
season.
Hackett and Revels have
been playing together
since freshman season.
Hackett, who scored 213
points last season, has
scored 526 career points
while Revels has added 323
points in her three years.
Venice's lineup will look
much different this year
as the Lady Indians will
be playing without guard
Juliana Cavallaro for the
first time since the 2007-
,08 season.
Cavallaroa three-year
starter, transferred to Sara-
sota High over the summer.
In her three years at Venice
High, Cavallaro scored
1,484 points. Last year, she
scored 506 points and aver-
aged 21 points a game.
"It's a huge adjustment
for me and for the girls,"
said Flynn. "We miss those
20 points (a game), so we
now have to do it by com-
mittee. I am excited about
putting in an offensive
system that all can take
part in. In order to do that
and get those 20 points in,
there are a million details
that go into it.W~e have to
get their skill level up to
cover what she did for us.

Other things on floor that
are positive and is a hard
worker. She is a blue-col-
lar role player there.We
have (sophomore) Maggie
(Flynn), who is still grow-
ing and still learning what
her role is as it develops."
Flynn is excited about
his four freshman on varsi-
ty Emma Hanewinckel,
Koree Ream, Karlee Ream
and Kalee McCutheon.
"Finish" is the term of
the season for the Lady
Indians.
"We have T-shirts with
it on and it's also on our
shoes," said Flynn. "We
talk about it every single
day- finishing at the rim,
finishing a drill, finishing a
game, finishing homework.
Finishing everything "
Flynn thinks winning 14
or 15 games is a realistic
goal this season,
"We are going to battle
every night, which is fun
for me because I have to
prepare," said Flynn. "We
have to prepare every
game. Offensively, we have
to be executing, such as
passing the ball, catch-
ing it in the right places,
squaring up to shoot
instead of being off bal-
ance stuff we work on
constantly."
Flynn thinks a strength
of his team is senior lead-
ership from Hackett and
Revels.
"Handling the ball with
pressure," said Flynn about
a potential weakness.
"Sometimes this is where
the age really shows."
WThen it comes to
crunch time in a game,
Flynn isn't sure who will
step up and make the big
play.
This is Flynn's second
full season as head coach


of the Lady Indians.
Flynn took over 10 games
into the season in 2009.
Over his tenure, the Lady
Indians' record is 26-11.
Last year, Venice finished
with a 18-6 record. The
Lady Indians were upset in
the district semifinals by
Naples Gulf Coast.
Venice is in a new clas-
sification and district this
season (Class 7A-District
11) with Sarasota, Braden
River, Manatee, Port Char-
lotte and Charlotte.
"WTe are not going to run
from anybody," said Flynn.
"It's a good, balanced
schedule of competitive
nights and not-so-com-
petitive nights. The only
games I care about are
district games."
Venice plays Naples
Barron Collier, Fort Myers
twice, Palmetto twice,
Southeast and holiday
tournaments in Bartow
and Bradenton.
In two preseason games
last week, Venice played
Tampa Riverview and
Sarasota Christian with
different results. Riverview,
which is one of the best
teams in the state, handled
the Lady Indians but they
returned the next night
with a convincing win over
the Lady Blazers.
"These two games told
me a lot," said Flynn. "We
went from best to bottom,
so you get a pretty good
idea. In the first game they
are not going to quit and
not afraid to play anybody.
What they learned is we
have to take care of the ball
better and have to under-
stand some passing angles.
There are some things that
need fixed."

Emal~:ppentz@venkcegondolier.com


There is a void there. No
doubt."
Flynn likes the atmo-
sphere around the team
this season.
"It's going to make us
better," said Flynn. "The
overall aura of the team
and camaraderie on the
team is 100 times better.
The gym is fun to be in."
Flynn doesn't want his
team to be the Hackett
show either.
"She can get 20 (points)
a night just working her-
self," said Flynn. "I don't
want to come down the
floor and dump it into
Laura Hackett because it's
not going to help me when
she is gone."
Revels is back on the
court for the first time
since injuring her knee on
Jan. 14, when she tore her
anterior cruciate ligament
and medial collateral
ligament.
Revels did play volleyball
this season but when she
stepped on the court on
Nov. 9, it was her first time
since her injury.
"Hannah in my gym is
good for me," said Flynn.


"Just her presence being
around, her leadership.
Kids look up to her. She
has to take some owner-
ship too. Not just Hackett
taking over for Cavallaro,
it's those two seniors tak-
ing over this team. That is
what has to happen. Han-
nah cannot be on the floor
for 30 minutes and score
four points. You can't do
that anymore. She needs
12 or 14 (points). She is
capable of getting all of
that and more."
Taking over at point
guard for the Lady Indians
is junior Meagan Powers,
who was on junior varsity
last year. She did get called
up on varsity at the end of
season and scored seven
points.
"We have Powers, who
can handle the ball, and
she will get better," said
Flynn. "Marie (Armato
Barrone) does a lot of

Just seven minutes into their match
with Lakewood Ranch, Venice set the
tone with a goal.
The Lady Indians then used a domi-
nant midfield to control the Lady Mus-
tangs in a 3-1 victory on Tuesday night in
a Class 4A-District 11 match at Po~well-
Davis Stadium.
The win gives Venice a 4-2 record
overall, but more importantly 4-() in the
district.
The loss was Lakewood Ranch's first of
the season as the Lady Mustangs fall to
3-1 overall and in the district.
"It's a district match and it's the two big
dogs in the area," said Venice coach Gary
Bol ard about the i portance of the win.
"T> get the advantage in district stand-
ings early is big.
This was the second meeting between
the schools this season as Venice lost 3-1
in the Sarasota Preseason Classic on Oct.
27.
"WTe wanted to see what they were
doing and probably played half of our
team against them," said Bolyard about


the first match. "We knew what we had
to do to beat them and worked on it past
couple of weeks."
At the beginning of the match, the
teams were kicking it back and forth with
no offensive chances.
This changed in the seventh minute as
junior Yasmin Velez raced down the right
wing and right-footed a shot over Lake-
wood Ranch keeper Alexandra Latham's
head into the far corner for the goal.
It was Velez' second goal of the season.
"That was huge," said Bolyard about
the goal. "T> get that early goal really set
the pace for us."
Venice preserved the 1-() lead with
stellar defense from junior Heather Wat-
kinson, sophomore Brandi Burrows and
Krystin Pomante.
"\Ve are undersized on the defense on
the outsides (Burrows and Pomante) but
they will go up against anybody," said
Bolyard. "\Ve are leaving them out on the
island a lot of times and we are playing
with three defensemen. They come up
huge."
The play of~renice's defense helps its
offense.
"That is why we are getting a lot more


midfield play because we are getting that
extra defender in the midfield and that is
helping us," said Bolyard.
Venice controlled the midfield in the
second half and it produced more shots
on goal. The Lady Indians had 1() shots
on goal in the half.
Lakewood Ranch nearly tied the match
in the 51st minute but the deflected shot
by Sarah Wolfe bounced off the crossbar
and away from the net.
Just two minutes later, Venice grabbed
a 2-() lead on senior Kelly~Vhite's first
goal of the season.
"It was a good through ball and she
chipped the ball and the goalie came
out," said Bolyard aboutl~hite's goal.
"Good placement of the ball."
Lakewood Ranch got within a goal as
Tyler Gordon scored in the 59th minute
with a shot into the lower left corner of
the net.
"Just confusion and scramble," said
Bolyard about Ranch's goal. "Those are
going to happen.
Venice closed out the scoring in the
7()th minute on a corner kick by Brittney
Reed, which cured into the net past the
Ranch keeper.

seemed to care a lot more
and they care about their

"Florida Southemn was
definitely the right fit for
her," said Venice coach


John Flynn. "She went
there and liked the cam-
pus. The coaches love her
there. Her personality fits
in well with their program.
She will be an impact
player right away."
Florida Southern College
finished with a 26-5 overall
record and a berth in the

casins placed first in the

with a 14-2 record for the
first time since 2()(5. They
also took first in the confer-
ence tournament for the
first time since 2()(3.
The Moccasins have four

Hackett is a four-year
starter for the Lady Indians.
Last year, she scored 213
points. In her three years,
Hackett has scored 526
points.
Through the years,
Hackett said, she's worked
on conditioning and her
moves around the basket
to become more of an of-
fensive threat.
"Definitely foul shots,"
said Hackett. "My foul
shots were terrible. Fresh-
man and sophomore and
even sometimes last year
they were horrible."
"Since I have known her
since seventh grade, it's
unbelievable," said Flynn


about Hackett's improve-
ment. "To be here today
watching her sign this
letter. She is the one who
did all the work. Very proud
of her. Great job for her
and congratulations to her
family."
Hackett said Florida
Southern was one of the
first colleges to contact her.
As a junior, she went to
one of the school's camps.
"They've been email-
ing me every since," said
Hackett, who committed
to Florida Southern in
September.
Hackett also visited Rol-
lins College and cancelled
a visit tolTingate College.


"I think I always thought
about it," said Hackett
about playing in college.
"I got serious about it my
junior year when I started
playing AAU."
Hackett could have
waited until spring to sign
but did so during the early
signing period, which is
Nov. 9-16.
1Vith the regular sea-
son starting on Thursday,
Hackett is happy to get the
decision out of the way.
"Kind of a relief to
know where you are going
now and not stress out
about it the rest of the
year," said Hackett.

As a freshman, Laura
Hackett admits, she wasn't
a very good basketball
player.
But over the next three
years the 6-foot-1 senior
has transformed herself
into one, which has paid
off.
The 17-year-old signed a
letter of intent Monday to
play for Division II Florida
Southern College in Lake-
land at a ceremony at Big
Daddy's Burger Den.
"I really loved the
coaches right when I went
up there for a visit," said


The Indians (8-1) continue
their season with a Class 7A-
Region 3 quarterfinal game at
Clearwater Countryside Friday
night.
The unbeaten Cougars (1()-())
are ranked third in the latest
state football poll while the
Indians are ranked ninth.
"They are a multiple spread
offense," said Peacock. "They
run a lot of trick plays. They have
a good running back (Diomi
Roberts) and their quarterback
(Gray Crow) can throw the ball
real well. They have some good
receivers and big offensive line.
T~e have to take care of ball and
not have any stupid penalties.
I think we can match up with
them. I think we are playing well
offensively with Danny (Dillard),
(Terry) Polk, and (Grant) Fless-
ner all healthy we are going to be
a tough team to stop."
Peacock isn't worried about
the Cougars' record.
"Everyone is )-()," said Peacock.

down to who executes.

this season. The Cougars have advanced
to the regional final two straight years,
losing both to Tampa Plant, including
last year's 21-13 setback. This is their
13th time in the postseason, including
four consecutive years. The Cougars have
a 7-12 overall record in the postseason.
Venice The Indians (8-1) are coming
off a convincing 24-7 win over state-
ranked Naples. Venice pounded the
ball right at the Golden Eagles to rush
for 301 yards on 50 carries. Running
backs Danny Dillard and Terry Polk
combined for 212 yards. Quarterback
Grant Flessner accounted for another
55 yards. Venice's defense limited the
high-powered Naples offense to just
211 yards and nine first downs. Venice
likes to run the ball with University
of Miami commit Danny Dillard, who
has 826 yards and 16 touchdowns.
Teammate Terry Polk has 453 yards and
four touchdowns. Quarterback Grant
Flessner has rushed for 739 yards and 13
touchdowns. Although he hasn't needed
to pass much this season (730 yards), he
can, as the senior passed for 1,251 yards
last season. Tight end Bobby Osborn and
wide receiver Polk have combined for 25
catches and 559 yards. Venice's defense
has allowed 258.5 yards per game total
and only 135 points, with 52 of those

The Center for Biologi-
cal Diversity petitioned
the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service to offer endan-
gered species status to
the South Florida rainbow
snake and the freshwater
Florida fairy shrimp.
Too late, according to
the center.
The federal agency
hasn't officially declared
either species extinct, cit-
ing a lack of information.
However, federal
wildlife officials said the
subspecies of rainbow
snake, which inhabited
Fisheating Creek at Lake
Okeechobee, has not been
documented since 1952.
The fairy shrimp
was known to inhabit
only one pond south of
Gainesville. The pond
since has been swallowed
up by development.
So what? Some might
ask.
The problem is that
when species disappears,
the impacts and its role
within biological habitat
might not be understood
fully, according to Diver-
sity Center biologist Tierra
Curry. Disappearance of a
species such as the rain-
bow snake could indicate
water quality or other
environmental imbalances
that eventually could affect
humans, Curry said.
U.S. Fish and Wildlife
spokesman Chuck Under-
wood doesn't disagree.
"Biological processes
are slow and long-term,"
Underwood said. "Fifty to
60 years is 'long-term' to
people, but it is not a long
time in biological terms."
A coalition of environ-
mental groups, including
the Center for Diversity,
petitioned the federal
agency to consider 404
species, mostly aquatic,
for protection under the
Endangered Species Act.
Five years from now,


the federal agency will
TOVIeW 374 species 114
in Florida from the list
and decide whether any or
all need added protection.
"The government has
to determine quickly
whether the 114 other
Florida species it's review-
ing will get protection
so that more of Florida's
heritage isn't erased by
extinction," Curry said in
a recent press release.
Curry told the Sun, "We
based the list on freshwa-
ter species that are ranked
as critically imperiled or
imperiled and that are
facing threats to their
existence."
For a list of species
threatened with extinction,
go to http://biological
diversity.org/programs/
biodiversity/ 1000_species/
the southeast freshwater
extinction crisis/florida.
html.
"We review anyone's
petition," U.S. wildlife
spokesman Tom Mac-
Kenzie said. However, the
sheer number of species
to review from the center
and other environmental
groups'petitionswilltake
time to analyze, he added.
U.S. Fish and Wildlife
is aware that extinction
remains a threat for some
species. In the 1980s, the
agency declared the Cape
seaside sparrow extinct.
The dusty seaside spar-
row officially was declared
extinct in 1990.
The federal agency is
examining whether gopher
tortoise habitat warrants
additional protections.
Sandhill cranes are among
the species whose survival
depends on protection.
The good news, Mac-
Kenzie said, is the biologi-
cal diversity found in Flori-
da and other Southeastern
states. The challen e is to
maintain that diversity aS
human impacts and activi-
ties grow, he said.

ICITY NOTES
COMPILED BY
NEWS EDITOR GREG GILES

Planning board
OKs petitionS
The Venice Planning
Commission onl~ednes-
day approved a simultane-
ous minor comprehensive
plan amendment and
rezone application in an-
ticipation of anew Publix
Super Market at Laurel
Road and Pinebrook Road.
The 30-acre property,
annexed in February, was
rezoned from the Sara-
sata County designation


of Open Use Estate, with
5-acre residential proper-
ties, to the city's Com-
mercial, General zoning
designation.
The site will be located
across the street from the
planned Sarasota Hospi-
tal medical campus, also
anticipated to make its
way through the plan-
ning commission soon.
Both applications go
before city council next.
consultant feeS
add ing up
Consultant fees


continue to be a bone of
contention for the city of
Venice.
Time and time again
city council members
have protested against
the overuse of con-
sultants, only to find
themselves without the
specialized expertise
on staff to accomplish a
stated goal.
Last week council
authorized another
contract, this time with
McKim & Creed to assist
in the preparation of the
city's reclaimed water
master plan. The city has


never had such a plan.
The fee is not to exceed
$208,390.
The city recently
hired another con-
sultant for $121,646
to review utility rates
and consider whether
to redistribute fees.
That was preceded by
consultants Malcolm
Pirnie, who were paid
$95,000 a few years ago
to come up with a water
and utilities study that
proposed raising rates
to generate funds for
a capital improvement
program.


City joinS
brown fieldS
coalition
The city of Venice
recently agreed to join
surrounding local gov-
ernments to create and
administer a Brownfields
Assessment Coalition.
The coalition, which
includes the Sarasota/
Manatee Metropolitan
Planning Organization,
Manatee and Sarasota
counties and the cities
of Palmetto, Bradenton,
Sarasota, North Port
and Venice, will study


hazardous substances
and petroleum assess-
ment within the MPO's
jurisdiction. The U.S.
Environmental Protec-
tion Agency provided a
$1 million grant to the
MPO to carry out the
assessment, focusing on
the U.S. 41 corridor.
The city of Venice is
identifying potential
eligible property sites, in-
cluding the Circus Arena.
Asbestos was found in
the arena's office floor
tiles. The grant also
provides redevelopment
funds.

That the entire work
is a musical of sorts
adds to the abnormal-
ity of the characters and
situations. The book and
lyrics by Brian Yorkey
with music by Tom Kitt
tell the story of a tragedy-
ridden family in which
it seems that Diana,
the mother (played by


Stacia Fernandez), is
bipolar and possibly
schizophrenic as well.
Sometimes quasi-normal
when she takes her pills
and sees her doctor, she
is totally off the wall
when she casts aside her
medication and tries to
be normal on her own.
Dealing with the


situation in his own
way is husband Dan
(Leo Daignault), while
daughter Natalie (Ashley
Picciallo) just wants to
get off to college as soon
as possible to escape the
situation. James LaRosa
portrays her friend Henry
who introduces her to
other forms of escape


from her life as an "invis-
ible girl," dealing with
being compared to a
"super boy."
An important part
of the story concerns
Dan and Diana's son
Gabe (Mike Backes),
the "super boy" who
seems to be a bit older
than Natalie. But there


is little normal about
"Next to Normal," and
things are not always as
they seem. He may or
may not be that old. In
fact, he may or may not
even be.
Scott Gutherie portrays
Dr. Madden and Dr. Fine,

The Community Foun-
dation at The Venice Golf
& Country Club has more
money than grant re-
quests for its 2()12 grant
cycle, which ends Friday.
Waiting to fulfill organi-
zational needs is $3(),()(()
in traditional grants that
will be awarded in March.
That amount is double
what was awarded at the
foundation's beginning
just six years ago. In the
interim, the founda-
tion has awarded more
than $17(),()() to 76 local
organizations.
This is the place to go
for that smaller request
that can make a big
difference. At previous
awards luncheons, grants
have been given for such
things as a new copy ma-
chine or a new computer.
A theater might request
money to purchase
fabric for costumes. A
grant might fund sup-
plies for students in an
after-school program.
The largest award will
be $3,()()( but there are
plenty of things that are
needed that cost less
than $3,()()( and could
make a huge difference
to an organization.


An additional $1(),()(()
in monetary awards will
be made throughout the
calendar year during
three fundraisers held at
the club.
Modeled after the
success of the Plantation
Community Foundation,
this younger founda-
tion is a project entirely
supported by members
of the Venice Golf &
Country Club. Its goal is
to "improve the quality
of life in the Englewood,
Laurel, Nokomis, North
Port, South Venice and
Venice communities."
Projects submitted for
consideration should
address needs or oppor-
tunities in one or more
of these areas: com-
munity social services,
cultural enrichment,
education, health or
environment. Complete
guidelines are provided
in the foundation's
application packet.
Applications may be
downloaded from the
Venice Golf & Country
Club website at www.


vgccmaster.com/28/
index.html.
The deadline for sub-
mission of applications is
Friday, Nov. 18. Questions


should be directed to Debra
D'Arcy or Lucy Phillip,
grants committee co-
chairs, at vgccfoundation@
comcast.net.

*Venice Christmas
Boat Parade exists to
promote youth boating
education.
*The boat parade
started at Venice Yacht
Club, and the board of
directors meets there
seven months a year,
but the boat parade is a
separate entity from the
yacht club.
*By the board's direc-
tion, the parade is all
about boating education
for youth.
*The boat parade is a
5()1(c)(3) not-for-profit
organization, and indi-
viduals, businesses and
organizations contribute
monies to it. Those dol-
lars go to the community
with a portion going to
VCBP.
*Any organization
that allows Venice youth
boaters to participate
are eligible to receive
monies. For example,
Venice youth are allowed
to participate in Sarasota
Scullers, and the Scull-
ers receive some of the
donate funds.
*VCBP provides two or
three $1,()()( scholarships
a year to Venice students
planning on going to col-
lege, preferable to engage
in some marine stud-
ies, but the school gives
guidance through Rotary
Futures about which
students need the orga-
nization's help. Contribu-
tions are also made to All
Faiths Food Bank.
*VCBP conducts fund-
raising throughout the
year and actually collects
donations at the time of
the annual boat parade,
planned for Dec. 3 at
6 p.m. on the Intracoastal
Waterway. Fundraising
has been conducted by
VCBP board members,
either through letters to
individuals and compa-
ni s ormoe-on mne visits.

Q 1 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:
a A 10 Q O 10 5 3 4 10 9 8 6 5 4 2

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

A You do not have much in the way
of defense against a major-suit
contract, but a reasonable hand
offensively. It is simply a matter of
how many clubs you should bid, and
we would throw it squarely mn the
enemy camp by raising to five clubs.

Q 2 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

a 10 6 9 3 O AK J 9 5 2 6 4 3 2

The bidding has proceeded:
WEST NORTH~ EAST SOUTH
16 Pass Pass ?
What action do you take?

A It is tempting to re-open with a
bid of two diamonds, since North
could have a pretty good hand that
was unsuitable for immediate action.
Equally possible, however, is that
West has a strong major two-suiter
and, given the chance, your
opponents might sail into an
unbeatable game in hearts. Smnce that
Tisk is real, pass.

Q 3 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
A K 10 9 8 6 5 93 K 8 3 A K a 7 6

The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
16 Pass 1NT 30*

*pre-emptive
What action do you take?

A While you have only 13 points in
high cards, they are all prime and
your master suit is six cards long. Do
not let the enemy preempt frighten
you out of the auction. Bid three
spades.

Q 4 Neither vulnerable, you hold:

a J 10 3 C3K 6 5 O Q 9 7 4 a K 9 3


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

A This is a matter of style. Those
who open four-card majors should
respond one no trump, because there
is no reason to raise partner's major
with only three-card support and no
ruffing value. Five-card major
addicts have no problem raise to
two hearts.

Q 5 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

6 7 2 99 6 5 10 43 2 687 6

The bidding has proceeded:
WEST NORTH EAST SOUTH
10 Dbl Pass?
What action do you take?
A Not the best hand we have seen
this week, but you must do
something. Passing is equivalent to
handing the opponents buckets of
points for making one diamond
doubled with who knows how many
overtricks. Partner has asked you to
bid, so oblige. Bid one heart, your
cheaper three-card suit.

Q 6 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
SAAK Q 10 6 3 6 O J 5 6L A Q 10 9

The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
16 Pass 1NT Pass

What do you bid nolw?
A Your choice is between three
Spades, three clubs and two clubs.
Three clubs can be discarded
immediately you do not have the
values to insist on game. The trouble
with three spades is that it could get
passed (it is only invitational) when
game in clubs is laydown. That
leaves two clubs as your best option.
Given a chance, a spade rebid later
describes your 6-4 distribution and
better than average strength,

DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I am in my 80s and have a
problem. I had a car acci-
dent three years ago. Since
then, I pass gas most of the
time, and I can't hold it in.
I am very embarrassed to
go out of the house.
Please tell me what
causes it, or what I can do
to prevent it. Anon.
ANSWER: Flatulence,
the pas age of rectalsgas'

day for almost everyone.
Some of that gas comes
from swallowed air. Eat
food slowly to lessen the
chances of getting air into
the digestive tract. Most
of the gas is due to the
fermentation of foods by
bacteria in the colon. A
few illnesses are associated
with excessive flatulence
- celiac disease and pan-
creatic insufficiency being
two examples. The pan
creas supplies enzymes to
digest food. Without those
enzymes, bacteria digest
the food. I can't implicate
the car accident as a cause.
Make a few adjustments
to your diet. I'll name foods
that are the most trouble-
some. Don't eliminate all of
them at once. Pick two or
three, and keep them out of
your diet for two weeks. If
you don't note a reduction
in gas by two weeks, start
eating those foods again
and eliminate three others.
Milk products, including
cheeses and ice cream'
fruits and carbonated bev-
erages are three foodstuffs
to eliminate in trial one.
After two weeks, if there's
no whiff of change, go back
to eating those foods, and
stop eating beans, peas and
pastas. If a third trial is nec-
essary, get rid of cabbage,
broccoli and cauliflower.
Brussels sprouts and lentils
are other gas producers. If
you note that you are gassy
after particular foods, then
erase them from your diet.
Have you tried Gas-X,
Phazyme or Beano? Do so.
If all this comes to
naught, other options are
available. Flat-D Innova-
tions Inc. makes a pad
that is inserted into the
underwear to absorb gas.
The toll-free number is
866-354-0056 and their
website is www.flat-d.com.
The Under-Tec Corpo-
ration makes different
products that soak up gas.
8tsto4 3re number iswb
site is www~under-tec.com.
If you have no computer,
surely a friend or relative
does. You can see pictures
of these products online.

abdominal pain. I called

farct (heart attack). Which
do you think it was? D.J.
ANSWER: If an autopsy
was done, it will provide
the definitive answer.
Any tests done in the ER
also would help make a
diagnosis. The severe ab-
dominal pain suggests an
aneurysm. The pain of a
heart attack can be felt in
many places, not just the
chest. It can be centered
in the abdomen. I have to
go with the death cer-
tificate. The doctor who
signed it must have had
evidence for the heart at-
tack cause. You might be
able to contact him about
his reasons for believing
that.
The booklet on heart at-
tacks explains their cause
and their treatments.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I
have what the doctor calls
a Charcot (shar-COE) joint
in my foot. Just by stepping
on the foot when getting
out of bed, I broke two
bones. I've been a diabetic
for 45 years. Information is
deeply appreciated.
- L.M.
ANSWER: A Charcot
joint is one that has been
damaged and deformed
because the nerves to that
joint no longer bring pain
signals to the brain. The
foot, therefore, doesn't
make adjustments that it
would make if it felt pain.
Repeated trauma to the
joint and bones promotes
fractures and distortion of
the joint and bones. Dia-
betes is usually the cause
of the nerve malfunction.
No medicine restores the
foot to health. Braces and
splints, however, stabilize
the foot and make it more
functional.

Dear Heloise: Could
you give me your recipe
for seasoned salt? I made
it before, and it was very
good, but I can't find my
recipe. Connie lV., via
email .
This is a great season-
ing that will save you
money when you make it
yourself. If you are watch-
ing your salt intake, you
can use a salt substitute
in place of the salt. You'll
need:
1 cup salt (or salt
substitute)
2 tablespoons onion
powder
1 teaspoon garlic
powder
1 tablespoon
well-ground celery seed
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
pepper
1 teaspoon dried,
well-ground parsley flakes

Mix ingredients to-
gether. Store in a con-
tainer with a tightfitting
lid to keep out moisture.
A glass spice jar that has
a plastic lid with holes is
perfect for keeping this
seasoning within reach
on the dinner table. If
making a double or tri-
ple batch, use an empty,
plastic Parmesan-cheese
container. I have other
easy and low-cost reci-
pes for seasonings and
more in my Heloise's
Seasonings, Sauces and
Substitutes pamphlet.

meat popular today was
once thought of as a
throw-away portion of
beet?
tongue
fajitas
stew meat.
If you grill, you prob-
ably will know the answer
- it's fajitas, also known
as skirt steak. Any Mexi-
can restaurant here in
South Texas has fajitas on
the menu, and now they
are known nationwide.
This meat is from the
flank area of a cow. It
has been served in these
parts since the late '60s.
It is delicious when
grilled over mesquite
wood (which we have a
lot of here in Texas).

and ruffed by East. The king of
spades was cashed and East exited

Canada's team was always feared
at international events. It was
spearheaded by Sammy Kehela and
Eric Murray, who frequently played
every board of an event. This was the
case in this World Olympiad where
Murray declared a spade game on
this deal fr-om a match against
Iceland
West led the king of diamonds and
East discarded a club as declarer


Now Murray exited with a
diamond (a heart would have done as
well) and no matter how the defense
continued one trick was all they
could get. Try it.

make a difference.
In the case of the history museum annex for the Triangle
Inn, home of the Venice Archives and Area Historical Collection,
the first million is in house, thanks to the generous donation of Julia
Cousins Laning. Hopefully the rest of us can help match that with
the sum of our individual donations. Send donations to The Triangle
Inn, 351 S. Nassau St., Venice, FL 34285, marked for the museum
fund.
To save the historic old Venice Circus Arena, former winter quar-
ters of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus (1960-1992),
the Venice Circus Arts Foundation is offering Walk-in Bingo games
every Saturday beginning at 1 p.m. in King Solomon's Treasure,
1250 U.S. 41 Bypass South in Venice. For information, call 941-485-
7675.
If saved, the arena would become the largest entertainment ven-
ue between Tampa and Naples, holding 4,500 people for concerts,
trade shows, graduations and possibly even a circus or two. Venice
already has the best theater in the U.S. Its producing director, Allan
Kollar told me he would love to have a chance to fill that arena with
entertainment too big for the theater. It has been estimated that it
will take $10 million to make the transformation.
The basic structure is sound: a floor strong enough to hold
elephants and X-frame steel walls. It needs cosmetic surgery begin-
ning with a roof. Learn more at www.venicecircusarts.com. To make
a donation, send a check to Venice Circus Arts Foundation at P.O.
Box 2220, Venice FL 34284.

A man's home is his castle, especially at
I\Ona where Howard Solomon has con-
rstructed the most unique castle in Florida,
if not America.
It has plenty of castle trappings such as
stained glass windows, turrets, balconies, a moat
and even two sentries at the door. That its exterior
is covered with old newspaper printing plates is
but one of many clues that this castle is very dif-
ferent from the place Cinderella calls home in the
world of Disney.
Two men-at-arms, dubbed Knight and Day
by their creator, stand guard at the entrance to
what has become the life work of Solomon and
his wife Peggy Solomon, a sculptor, transformed
his family's typical Florida house, beginning with
the porch. Even on the inside, one would be hard
pressed to discover the base house. Instead,
Howard likes to point out the plane wall (a wall
covered with carpenter planes) off the kitchen,
and a trap door in the living room. The trap door
hides a surprise he created for his grandchildren
but children of all ages enjoy the surprise.
About the only "normal" items in the house are
the furniture and kitchen appliances. Accessories
and art work, including some 85 stained glass
windows are the work of Solomon. The gardens
that frame the castle and edge the moat and its
boat along Horse Creek, are Peggy's province.
Also allow time for lunch or at least some apple
crisp at the Boat in the Moat Restaurant. Solomon
also built the 60-foot boat, modeling it after a
Spanish galleon. Entry to the restaurant and gift
shop is from a drawbridge over the moat, which
most days, even contains an alligator.
Within the castle which also serves as living
quarters for the Solomons, is a stained glass
studio, the Blue Moon guest suite which can be
rented and extensive gallery space used for the
display of his creations. The sculptor/artist has
a sense of humor which leads to some unusual
names for his work but even inspires many of the
creations. One of the most popular is a sculpture
of Elizabeth Taylor as Cleopatra. Masses of
bicycle chains serve as Cleopatra's wig. Howard
banters with visitors as he guides them through
the castle, calling attention to these unique
objets. De pit te ogue-i's ee crh s ion
can be seen in the many paintings and other
works inspired by such famous artists as Modi-
gliani.There are additional Solomon creations
throughout the grounds.

with Craig Ferguson" will perform at the
Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall at
8 p.m. Saturday
Ferguson entered the world of late night com-
edy following a diverse and eclectic career that
encompasses film, television and the stage.
Born in Glasgow, Scotland, Ferguson got his
start in the entertainment industry as a drummer
for some of the worst punk bands in the U.K., a
profession he held for several years. Following his


musical stint, he began bar tending in a local pub
in Glasgow where he was introduced to Michael
Boyd, the artistic director of The Tron Theatre
in Glasgow, who persuaded Ferguson to give
acting a go. After several low-paying acting gigs,
Ferguson discovered he had a knack for comedy
and was soon the star of his own BBC television
show, "The Ferguson Theory"
Ferguson was involved in the English comedy
circuit for a short while then he brought his act
to America in 1995 to star with Betty White and
Marie Osmond in the short-lived ABC comedy
"Maybe This Time"' After the show ended, ABC


decided to add the talented Scotsman to "The
Drew Carey Show," playing Drew Carey's boss,
Nigel Wick, from 1996-2003.
Since taking the helm of The Late Late
Show with Craig Ferguson" on Jan. 3, 2005,
the show has set all-time viewer records and
achieved the highest ratings since the shows
inception in 1995.
Tickets are $39.50, $49.50 or $69.50 and are
available by calling 239-481-4849 or online at
www.bbmannpah.com.
The Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall is
located at 8099 College Parkway, Fort Myers.

did Winslow. His celebrity status was in place. He
then went to play a part in Mel Brooks "Space-


balls"'This film helped in furthering his spotlight
as a unique comedian. A man with a special tal-
ent that made "families" laugh. Winslow was also
heard, but not seen, when he gave the voice to
Stripe, the evil little creature, in another hit movie
"Gremlins"'
He also did voice-overs for Disney and Univer-
sal Studios in such rides as "Back to the Future"
and "Terminator"'
Currently, he can be heard in the television hits


'Robo Chicken" and "Family Guy" and in Geico
commercials. He has much more in the works
possibly including a brand new "Police Academy
movie.
His show is a mixture of sound affects, stand
up comedy, voice impersonations and movie


reenactments all with amazing sound. The cost
for the show is $20. All shows start at 8 p.m.
Visani will be serving dinner starting at 5 p.m.

The Roys headline the Snobird &

Cracker Bluegrass Reunion Festival


E/N/C/V November 16-22, 2011


Roys' performances awed by their talents.
Their current single and music video is "Coal
Minin' Man," a rollicking, ode to the hardworking
souls who labor below the earth. Lee's lead vocal
showcases an effortless and clear tenor, while
Elaine's harmony lines weave a magical spell
around this timeless tale of the perils of miners
everywhere. Their new CD, "Lonesome Whistle,"
debuted on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart at
Number 7.
The two-time Inspirational Country Music Duo
of the Year (2010, 2009) has performed before

Written by Joseph Kesselring, it took theaters
across the United States by storm in the 1940s
and continues to earn chuckles to this day. Film
buffs may remember the film version directed by
Frank Capra and starring the legendary
Gary Grant.
What is even more memorable to most are the
two Brewster sisters who served poison-laced
elderberry wine to elderly old men. That the sis-
ters also have a brother who believes he is Teddy
Roosevelt, adds another zany, though not as dark,
twist, unless you consider that the holes he digs in
the basement become repositories for the victims


of the sisters' wine concoctions.
With a family like this, drama critic Mortimer
Brewster is torn about whether or not to marry the
woman he loves and subject her to his family.
"It's a rollicking farce, and our student actors
are having fun and doing a great job portraying
the outrageous characters,"VHS drama teacher
Ron DelBello said in a press release about
the play.
The play will be performed at 7 p.m.
Wednesday through Friday.
Admission is $5 per person.

large in the minds of many, it is comforting to
know that several of the clawed creatures are
wending their way toward Manasota Beach.
According to an informant at the Hermitage
Artist Retreat on Manasota Beach, the cooked
crustaceans will be available for consumption
with all the usual trimmings on Saturday at the
annual fund-raising event, The Artful Lobster.
Because the Hermitage campus is fully occupied
most of the year by its visiting artists who are
hard at work on their special projects, this is the
only on-campus fund raising event held there.
This year's event will be especially special
because all the buildings will be open during
the event and all the current resident artists will
be there for a meet and greet. This is a chance
to learn firsthand about each of their special
projects and to learn first-hand what makes the
Hermitage such a special place for its resident
artists as well as for its impact on the neighbor-
ing community that is increasingly known as the
Cultural Coast.
The event runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., which
leaves plenty of time to head home to change for
"My Fair lady" which is newly opened at the Asolo
in Sarasota or for "Big River: the Adventures of
Huckleberry Finn" at Venice Theatre.
As the Artful Lobster feast includes 1 and
1/2-pound lobsters, drawn butter, mesquite-grilled
chicken, St. Louis barbecue ribs, New England


clam chowder, corn on the cob, red skin potatoes,
corn bread and a salad station, you should not
need dinner before the theater.
Cellist Michael Fitzpatrick will entertain. He
was one of the first resident artists at the Hermit-
age and compiled a CD while in residence.
There also will be a live auction that includes
such special items as a week at Antibes Maison-
ette, which is located in France near Monte Carlo,
Cannes and Nice. Also close to the two-bedroom
vacation retreat is the Pablo Picasso Museum.
Another biddable item is the chance to be
a VIP in D.C., including a stay at the Cosmos
Club, which is not open to the public. Learn
more about the club at www.cosmosclub.org.
While there, enjoy lunch with U.S. Representa-
tive Vern Buchanan in the private congressional
dining room (schedule permitting), have a VIP
tour of the White House, the Capitol and receive
gallery passes for the House and Senate. Dick
Lobo, former head of WEDU and his wife Caren
will entertain the winning bidder at dinner one
night. He is the current head of the Broadcasting
Board of Governors. Several other VIP and enjoy
all the Hermitage facilities including tours, passes
and special oppor uites complt te pa kage
which was designed for Hermitage supporters and
donated by Ellen Berman, Buchanan and the Lobos.
Also up for bids is a weekend at the Hermit-
age Retreat. Stay for two nights in the two-bed-
room Whitney House.
There also are opportunities for aspiring novel-
ists or playwrights, gift baskets and more.

Ohrenstein will perform "Dance of the
Zodiac" at 2:30 p.m. Saturday at the Unity
Church of Sarasota.
The work was created by Ohrenstein as a
12-part dance suite based on the 12 signs of the
Zodiac. It is framed by an introduction and finale.


Dance of the Zodiac was produced by the
Florida Ballet Arts Ensemble which is directed
by Jeanne Winslow and Sistie Fairweather. They
combined modern dance with classical ballet
moves iin their production. Ohrenstein said the
two choreographers argued over who would
choreograph the music based on the sign of Libra
which he describes as a "breathtaking adage."
Dec. 20 to April 4, Ohrenstein will be featured


for his third season at the Gasparilla Inn on Boca
Grande. Tuesday through Sunday each week, he
will perform on the inn's 1924 vintage Steinway
concert grand piano.
He has performed in the Catskills for 11 sum-
mers and records with New Clear Studios in West
Windson, N.Y.
In addition to the "Zodiac" ballet, he recently
completed, with wife Sharon Lesley. the new mu-


sical: "Three Queens," which was presented last
May at The Players in Sarasota. Lesley created
the book and wrote the lyrics.
The work currently is under consideration for
a touring production in several upstate New York
schools.
Saturday's concert is free although donations
are welcome.

Dec. 27 through Feb. 5. Picture a resort in the
Catskills circa 1960s when Lois and Marge, two
friends from Brooklyn, hope to wrap their summer
with romance during a Labor Day weekend vaca-

Girl" and "Where the Boys Are" to "Sweet 16" and
"Stupid Cupid" as well as the title song, and this
show promises a fun evening of theater. Tickets
are $45 per person including buffet dinner.
Also added to the schedule are three more
performances of "Roberta MacDonald Songs,
Stories and Mr. Chatterbox," featuring Apple
founder MacDonald with special guest
Bob Plunket. Learn more about the lady who

starred on Broadway before being carried off to


Sarasota by husband Robert Turoff to
found the Apple Dinner Theatre.
MacDonald literally has show biz in her blood,
went to the school that inspired "Fame" and can
not only tell some great stories but has some
special pictures and videos to accompany the
stories and songs. The extra shows will be Dec.
6-8. Tickets are $38 per person including a full
buffet.
"Cheerful Little Earful!" runs through Nov. 27.
Based on the Harry song of the same name, this
special Apple offering was written by Turoff and
features the music of Harry Warren who was a
Hollywood film score legend.

The Sarasota Golden Apple production
of "Let's Hang On" was a sellout for Nov.
12. Because every seat in the house was
taken within a week, the theater will bring the
show back again April 2. Tickets are $45 per
person, including a buffet dinner.
The show is billed as "the nation's number one
Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons tribute show."
Backed by a live band, the show features such
songs as "Big Girls Don't Cry,""Walk Like A Man,"
"Sherry,'""I've Got you under My Skin," "Can't Take
My Eyes Off of You," "My Eyes Adored You," "Lets

Riders from all over the United States will
Lea Farm facility, highlighted by a show
jumping Grand Prix on Saturday afternoon and a
$2,500 Hunter competition on Sunday morning.
The three day event will draw approximately 175
riders competing in various jumping classes.
The competitions begin at 7:30 a.m. and ends
by 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
Friday's preliminary events present a chance
to see some of the big name horses that will be
entered in the Grand Prix the next day.
Fox Lea's office manager Angela Gordy notes,
"Friday's events are mostly for the professionals
who warm up the horses for their clients to ride
the following days." Saturday's featured event,
the Grand Prix, with a purse of $25,000, starts
slightly after 2 p.m. with Sunday's big Hunter
show starting first thing in the morning.
While top riders from out of state are entered,
90 percent of the participants are Florida based,
including Kendall Kaske, one of the nation's top
pony class riders, out of the Pennington Farms
stable in Fort Myers and Rachael Dean of Fort
Myers, trained by Carole Wilson, out of the
Winstar Farm.
Sarasota trainer Sharon Bejarano will have a
number of riders out of her Fairwin Farms facility
entered in events throughout the weekend as well.
The Fox Lea show costs $5 per person admis-
sion each day. Breakfast and lunch are available
at the Fox Lea Caf6 provided by Chef Lupa.
Fox Lea Farm was founded by current owners
Linda and David Aldrich in 1983 on 46 acres, pri-
marily because their daughter Kim was involved

Pennmngton, who will also be one of the judges

oped the barns, show rings, infrastructure and
supporting buildings from scratch on previously
undeveloped land. With rider and horse safety
in mind, Fox Lea Farm developed into one of the
premier privately owned horse show facilities in
Florida.
Currently Kim, married to Clay Farrell, trainer
for Prince Farm of Palmetto, is business and
show manager for Fox Lea. Office Manager


Angie Gordy has been with Fox Lea Farm since
1999. Together they oversee a paid staff of 30
employees. A staff that produces quality horse

you still get a salad and a side dish included with
your meal, instead of ala carte. Our biggest seller
here is our Black Angus Prime Rib"
Working with his family not only holds special
value for Kodra, but he also feels it's advanta-
geous to their customers. "It's really important to
have a family,"he said."We care about the
business and we care about our customers.
The key (to the restaurant's success) is
consistency. I'm always on that kitchen line"'
When the restaurant isn't open, Kodra
enjoys being with his three young daughters and
wife Renata-and going out."We love to dine at
other restaurants, travel and go on cruises,"
he said.
So do his daughters have an interest in the
family business? "I have taught them all to
cook for themselves," he said. I think it's
important when they're young for them to be
independent"
Another generation of Kodra restauranteurs?
Perhaps. Kodra is a firm believer in experiencing
the business from the ground up. "I learned by
making mistakes and learning from them," he
said."I've done it all--to be successful, you have
to. In my business, every day is a new challenge"

together--all the way from the Chicago
suburbs to Sarasota County
Rick Kodra was raised in a restaurant family
in Naperville, Ill. Growing up the oldest of three
siblings, he spent quite a bit of time learning the
family business. "I was always cooking and help-
ing my father in the restaurant," Kodra said."My
father was my mentor"
Because they are a very tight-knit family, when
they decided to make the move from chilly Illinois
to sunny Florida and open a restaurant here in
1985, it was together. "We've just always been in
the business," said Kodra. "Once you're in,
you never really get out"
Not that he minds that at all."When we had
the restaurants in Chicago, we were open all
the time," he said, "seven days a week, break-
fast, lunch and dinner. When we came here, we
wanted to have more of a family life"
With his father in the office, his brother in the
bar, and the wives and sister out front, you're usu-
ally assured of seeing at least one of the Kodra
family on a visit to Rosebud's Steak and Seafood
House, their steak and seafood restaurant in
Osprey Rosebud's is their second restaurant in

ARA is not just another rock'n' roll group. It's
Another Roadside Attraction.
Serious lovers of rock n roll music will
be amazed at how this group blends "psychedelic
dirt rock while balancing tight pop songs with
exploratory jams"'This unique Sarasota based
band serves up an eclectic mix of part purist rock
'n' roll with alt-country influences.
Another Roadside Attraction was formed
two years ago by lead singer and writer Mark
Zampella and drummer Ted Sipes. Both have at
least 30 years of musical experience. Zampella
is a graphic designer and sound engineer who
designs the group's website and records and
mixes their music in his home studio.
He hosts a radio show on 96.5 WSLR called
"Complex Waveforms" that airs every Friday from
10 a.m. to noon. Sipes teaches drum lessons and
also hosts a radio program:"Ted"s Head" on
96.5 WSLR on Thursday afternoons from 3 p.m.
to 5 p.m.
Bass guitarist Paul Louis splits the song writ-
ing with Zampella. He played in bands for years
in Baltimore and Philadelphia before moving to
Venice. After a two-year hiatus, Louis joined
ARA and "rediscovered musical artistry"
He loves how the four players "mesh"
After he and Zampella write a song, the end
result "always comes out better after
everyone's input"' Louis "brings new meaning to
the concept of harmony" according to


ARA's website www~anotherroadsideattraction .net.
Ann Maxwell is a classically trained pianist.
In 1999 she decided to free herself from the
restraints of reading music and began a journey
that allowed her to "let go"' She was fascinated by
ARA's sound, how songs were never played the
same way twice but "written from the heart"'
In the future she plans to play music with a
creative edge, totally in the present, where
her music can "morph into something fun and
fabulous"
Although influenced by many musical groups
including Son Volt, Roxy Music, and Radiohead,
"Another Roadside Attraction" has created i
ts own sound. Their performances and charity
events have been well received at The Cock n
Bull, Polo Grill, and the Sarasota Municipal
Auditorium. Initial reaction to their original
recordings of "So Cold," "Home," and Square
Dude in a Crop Circle," has been extremely
positive.
At 8 p.m. on Saturday the group will perform at
Mr. Beery's, 2645 Mall Drive, Sarasota. The event
is free and promoted as "a night of beer and
music with Another Roadside Attraction" followed
by the band Heart Machine.
A debut CD "Deluxe and Delightful" is available
for sale at that time or can be purchased online at
Amazon, The iTunes Music Store, Fogt's Music,or
the Sarasota Guitar Company. The CD Includes
10 original tunes and can be ordered from their
website.

gras beads encircle the cloth napkins on the
tables and zydeco music is piping through
the speakers. This must be the Zydeco Grille.
One of Englewood's best kept secrets, the
Zydeco Grille has been sitting in a quiet strip
shopping mall on Placida Road for the past nine
years. From the outside it may look fairly non-
descript, but the inside is straight from Bourbon
Street.
Joan Sambucci, the owner, has been in the
restaurant business in one form or another since
she was 18. About 16 years ago, she moved to
Englewood. "I was waitressing for seven years
in this town before I opened the restaurant," she
said.
Deciding what type of restaurant to open
was the next step. "I was living here in the
south and wondered why no one was doing
southern cajun/creole food," she said."If you can
do something different and find your niche, you
have a better chance at longevity. We are the
only restaurant (of our kind) within a
50-mile radius"
In the restaurant business, being open for
nine years is like an eternity--especially in this
economy. "Englewood in particular, there are a
lot of restaurants around here," said Sambucci.


"Our regular customers like the environment
here--it kind of takes them out of Englewood for
a while"
Not only is the d~cor pure New Orleans, but
the menu has delectable cajun standards like red
beans and rice, jambalaya, crawfish, muffalattas,
etouffee and po' boys. And don't let the thought of
spicy creole food scare you."Everyone thinks this
type of food is really hot," Sambucci said."It's re-
ally not. Most of the food is palatable to everyone,
but is still flavorful"'
Best of all is the fresh local seafood in the
Zydeco Grille dishes. "We use local Gulf fish," she
said."Grouper, fresh pompano and triple tail hog-
fish"'And when it comes to desserts, Sambucci
has it covered."I make the homemade desserts,
like crime brulee and bread pudding," she said.
"Everything here is homemade"
A couple of years ago, Sambucci acquired the
space next door and opened the Voodoo Room,
which is attached to the restaurant and has a
full-service bar.You can order from a bar menu,
which still has delicious Zydeco Grille selections
on it, and enjoy drink specials."We have a happy
hour from noon to 6 p.m.," she said."No matter
what you drink, it's two for one"
Open the same hours as the restaurant,
11:30 a.m. until close Monday-Saturday, the
Voodoo Room is a great place to hang out and
wait for your dinner party to arrive or to have an

after-dinner drink.
The Zydeco Grille is available for birthday
and holiday parties, and they also cater events
on- and off-site. Beginning in January, Sambucci
plans to do a Jazz Sunday Brunch from 11 a.m.
to 3 p.m. Order from an ala carte menu and enjoy
live music.
And Mardi Gras promises to be a big celebra-
tion, as usual."Fat Tuesday is our busiest night
of the year," said Sambucci."We do two for one
Hurricanes all day, and people dress up and


come in here with boas and masks. They have a
great time"
Though enjoyed by snowbirds and part-timers,
Sambucci says the Zydeco Grille is a local
establishment at heart."This is a great neighbor-
hood restaurant," she said. "People here are so
hospitable and fun.They like to have an evening
out and enjoy the whole Zydeco experience"
The Zydeco Grille and Voodoo Room are
located at 2639 Placida Road, Englewood.

M be ( li h)Wood) the penguin,

reluctant to dance. Erik runs away

Mighty Sven (Hank Azaria) -- a penguin
who can fly. Poor Mumble can't

says he's always been fond of melodrama, which
defines "Breaking Dawn.'""It was part of why I
wanted to do it. I'm a big fan of classic Hollywood
genres. That's a genre that's sort of fallen out
fashion. Like other things like detective stories
- it became the thing that TV took over. And it
became devalued.
"But some of our greatest directors worked
in that form. It allows you to immerse yourself
in emotion, and do that both with the camera,
music, design and color. I very much embraced
it and didn't fight against it, didn't try to make
this into something that was super real. It's a
valuable genre. Because it often puts women and
women's' concerns in the center, it gets devalued
too, that's too bad. But I was excited by that."

film that is the fourth in a line of fan-blessed
hits based on an equally famous series of
books. And make not only one film but two, the
second to be the last of the now legendary cycle.
But Bill Condon doesn't seem the worse for wear.
The biggest challenge in making "The Twilight
Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1," a fantasy involv-
ing werewolves, vampires and all-too-humans,
was trying to please everyone, he says.
"These books are beloved by so many people
you want to make sure that it's your take on the
material, but that it doesn't betray what people's
expectations are, and yet still becomes a fully
cinematic experience."
"Making two movies at once wasn't fun either,"
he says. "It was fun, but it was hard. Kristen
(Stewart, the show's star), would be young Bella,
a high school girl in the morning, then a vampire
in the afternoon and then a pregnant mother in
the evening. She had days like that, it was crazy."
In "Breaking Dawn Part 1" Stewart not only
marries her vampire sweetheart (Robert Pattin-
son), she experiences her first sexual union with
him, becomes pregnant and bears his child.
That is a tall order for a nearly two-hour movie.
The birth scene was the big hurdle, says Condon.


"Obviously it's very, very kind of powerfully
described in the book.You want to be true to that
experience, but how do you show some of those
things? As with a lot of other things, I think the
key to doing it is to tell it from Bella's point of
view. The same thing as with the wedding,
walking down the aisle. In that case just giving
myself that limitation that we're only going to
see what Bella can see as these things are hap-
pening to her, only through her eyes, as she gets
weaker, as the morphine takes over ... it is kind of
intense."
It was so intense that there was some question
about its PG-13 rating."They told us we weren't
hitting PG-13 yet," he says."It's a very clinical
