Tracks for the Atlantic tropical cyclones of 2011.



Season concludes;



no local storms


By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR

Hurricane season officially
ended today (Wednesday),
giving Florida its sixth year
without a major hurricane.
Our friends up north weren't
so lucky. Hurricane Irene,
which hit North Carolina in
August and flooded surround-
ing states, ended a six-year
streak without a major hurri-
cane strike on the U.S. main-
land. It was a major reminder
for northern Atlantic states
that they are not immune from
the destructive storms.
The National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration,
on its website, said this year's
19 tropical storms represent
the third-highest total (tying
2010, 1995 and 1887) since
record-keeping began in 1851,
well above the average of 11.
The number of major hur-
ricanes, however, was only
slightly above average. In
all, seven hurricanes were
recorded, with only two reach-
ing major hurricane status.
The last one before Irene was
Wilma in 2005; Florida's last
land-falling hurricane was
Charley, which devastated
Charlotte County in 2004.
According to hurricane
guru Jeff Masters of Weather
Underground, 37 percent of
this year's named storms made
it to hurricane strength.
"Normally 60 percent of all
named storms intensify to hur-
ricane strength in the Atlantic,"
Masters said in his end-of-
season column on Weather
Underground's website.
"The rare combina-
tion of near-record ocean


temperatures but unusually
dry, stable air over the Atlantic
is no doubt at least partially
responsible for 2011's unusu-
ally high count of named
storms but near-average num-
ber of hurricanes."
"Both 2010 and 2011 had
19 named storms, making it
the second-busiest two-year
period in the Atlantic, behind
2004-2005," Masters wrote.
"Favorable currents steered
most of the storms past
Bermuda and out to sea."
It's all about steering winds,
according to retired meteo-
rologist Bill Kennedy. One
of the U.S. Navy's best hur-
ricane predictors in the 1950s,
Kennedy, 90, was forecasting
hurricane events before there
were satellites and not much
radar in use. He used ship and
airplane reports, and steering
winds as key predictors.
After a 42-year career, he
settled in Venice because the
center of a hurricane had
never hit the area, he said.
Kennedy still follows the
winds. He predicated last year,
based on NOAA and Weather
Underground data, there
wouldn't be a major hurricane,
and there wasn't. Earlier this
year he predicted there would
be a very serious hit on the
U.S. Irene came up the east
coast of Florida and did its
damage in North Carolina.
He's not ready to predict
what next year's hurricane
season will bring. Neither is
NOAA. It'll begin making pre-
dictions in May, in preparation
for the beginning of hurricane
season June 1.

Airport 'rebirth' promoted


By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR

Three years ago a city meet-
ing on development at Venice
Municipal Airport might have
drawn a hundred residents
- mostly neighbors unhappy
with aircraft noise and a
proposed beachside hotel that
could have done away with
the municipal golf course as
they know it.
Those days are gone.
At Tuesday's joint meeting of
city council and the Economic


Council

By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR

Venice City Council and
Sarasota County commission-
ers meet today (Wednesday)
at the Venice Community
Center.
The annual meeting typi-
cally helps guide cooperative
working arrangements, priori-
tizes projects and occasionally
smooths ruffled feathers.
On today's agenda is an
update on the U.S. 41 Bypass
project. Council will likely be
looking for some assurance

the city and nurture small
business at the airport.

Council Member Emilio
Carlesimo suggested holding
hands and singing the spiri-
tual "Kumbaya." He was jok-
ing, but it captured the spirit
of cooperation that even air-
port detractors for the most
part have come to embrace
after years of controversy.
Promised concessions,


enshrined into the airport
master plan, were hard fought.
Residents are now look-
ing forward to seeing them
come to fruition. The only
complaints now are when
noise-mitigation runway 4/22
will be resurfaced and when

promised improvements, like

from commissioners that
there won't be support for
any further delays, or as one
council member put it, "no
more wrenches being thrown
into the works."
There will be a discussion
of the Jacaranda Boulevard
extension connecting to
Laurel Road. Council will be
looking for a commitment
from the county to maintain
the connector once it's built,
although CNL Bank, the
property owner, has said it
will maintain the road if the
county doesn't. The connector


is scheduled for completion
by September 2012.
Council members and
county commissioners will
also discuss maintenance of
the Venice gateway right of
ways, focusing on lawn mow-
ing and tree plantings.
Look for an update on the

end occasional beach closures
due to high levels of bacteria.
There will be a presentation

FROM ABC 7

Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office divers were searching
the waters of the Intracoastal
Waterway in Venice on
Tuesday for what could be a
submerged car. They're div-
ing near the Circus Bridge.
The call came in from a


boater who said his under-
water radar picked up what
looked like a vehicle. First
responders said something is
there, but it's been there for
a while.
Dive crews and Venice
Police were on scene. No
other information was
immediately available.


Venice, counties may host triathlon


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

Venice, South Sarasota
County and Charlotte County
likely will be the site of a na-
tional triathlon next year.
For the past six months, the
Sarasota County Sports Com-
mission has worked with Rev-
olution3 Triathlon of Virginia
to bring an event to Sarasota
County. The original plan,
according to Jason Puckett,


director of sports for the Sara-
sota County Sports Commis-
sion, was for the 2012 race to
be held on Lido, Longboat and
St. Armands keys, and part of
downtown Sarasota. However,
due to scheduling and other
circumstances, the Longboat
Key portion of the event was
not feasible.
So organizers turned south
and "After taking a closer look,
the organizer and I feel Venice
is the perfect fit," Puckett


wrote in a letter to county
commissioners.
Pre-race festivities would
be on Oct. 26 and 27 and the
race would be set for Oct. 28.
Race headquarters would be
Sharky's on the Pier Restau-
rant in Venice. According to
the company's website, www.
rev3.com, the triathletes and
their supporters will "take
over Sarasota."

Reid invited to county retreat Thursday


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER


Alachua County Man-
ager Randall Reid will be
in attendance Thursday
at a daylong board retreat
for Sarasota County com-
missioners at the Admin-
istration Center.
Reid's contract as the
next Sarasota County
administrator is on the
agenda, he said. A county
spokesperson confirmed
that County Attorney
Stephen DeMarsh will
discuss the status of the
contract negotiations with
commissioners this week.
"I told him I would
intend to be there Dec. 1,"
Reid said Friday. "Obvious-
ly, I would not sign it before
then, I don't think. I haven't
got anything to sign yet."
Asked if he is excited, Reid
said, "Yes it would be nice
to get it all worked out and
finalized. I'm very interested
in it." He added that it's
unfortunate that questions
about the Alachua County
Commission's informal
meetings are coming up at
the same time.
If contract negotiations
are successful, Reid will
be stepping into a county
that has endured multiple
probes of its purchas-
ing practices in recent
months, and out of a
county that is embroiled
in an investigation as well.
At residents' request,
State Attorney Bill Cer-
vone is exploring whether


Alachua
County com-
missioners
S violated
Florida's
Govern-
ment-in-the-
Sunshine
REID Lawby
conducting
informal, advertised meet-
ings prior to their regular
commission meetings.
Critics say commis-
sioners hold the meetings
- which do not include
agendas or public com-
ment to crystallize votes.
Cervone said Reid is in no
way implicated in the case.
Since 2009, Ward Scott,
a former interim city
manager in Archer, a small
municipality in Alachua
County, has been part of a
nonpartisan group called
the Research Team, which
has shined a spotlight on
these informal meetings.
Audio files featuring Scott
talking about the meet-
ings with clips from
them can be found
on the Alachua County
Republican Party website
(www.alachuarepublicans.
com) by clicking on "Ward
Scott's Fraud Files."
Reid said he is comfort-
able attending the informal
meetings because Alachua
County Attorney Dave Wag-
ner advised his commis-
sion that those meetings
are "correct and proper."
But in an audiotape of
one of these meetings Wag-
ner tells commissioners


that the informal meeting
they are conducting is mor-
phing into a formal one.
"Obviously what's hap-
pening here today is agen-
das," he said, although
no agenda was posted, in
possible violation of the
Sunshine Law.
"If there was a viola-
tion of the Sunshine Law,
I would not be present at
it because I don't attend
meetings that are violations
of state law," Reid said.
Alachua County com-
missioners have discussed
issues at informal meetings
since before Reid became
county manager in 1999,
even though the people
their discussions affect
have not always been asked
in advance to attend. The
media occasionally attends,
Reid said, as does the local
chamber of commerce.
In one case, the sheriff
showed up at a formal
meeting to discuss her
budget, but the commission
didn't allow her to speak
because they had deter-
mined their votes on her
budget during a prior in-
formal meeting to which
they did not invite her.
Scott reported on the au-
dio file that Alachua Coun-
ty commissioners insist
that the informal meetings
are legal and in compliance
with the Sunshine Law.
Reid largely has stayed out
of the debate. However, in
a June 2009 meeting, Reid
agreed withWagner that
the board ought to change


its rules of procedure to
require agendas, if the in-
formal meetings are going
to morph into formal ones.
"My staff gets very con-
fused about what they are
going to be talking about,"
Reid said.
Stafford Jones, chair
of the Alachua County
Republican Party, said the
commission has "stacked
the deck against its own


citizens by holding 'the
meetings before the meet-
ings.' They were pulling a
sleight of hand. They knew
the way they advertised it
people would not be pay-
ing attention. Randy Reid
was kind of an enabler in
that process. He actually
helped design the process
back in the early days, and
he never said to them,
'This isn't really enough


notice so that you get good
public participation.' He
helped facilitate this pro-
cess that has residents up
in arms here and the state
attorney investigating. He's
got some responsibility for
this process happening."
"That's his expressed
opinion," Reid said of Jones.
"Many people in the com-
munity would tell you we
run a very clean ship here."

Antiques are the point of new 'Triangle'


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Nokomis Antiques
Triangle is to be the new
Suncoast destination
for collectors, said Dan
Simic, owner of Rum
Runners Antiques Mall,
106 East Pocono Trail,
Nokomis.
Nine months ago
retired dentist Simic
and his wife, Sandra
Hachman-Simic, began
turning their hobby of
collecting antiques into
the vision of creating
a mall. Acquiring the
former Nokomis Bank
and additional build-
ings, they opened their
first antiques store, the
foundation of this new
area destination.
Celebrating the grand
opening of this new
venue for collectors and
shoppers on Dec. 2 will
be the 14 dealers in Rum
Runners Mall and three
nearby antique stores.
"Everything we have is
more than 60-plus and


SUN PHOTO BY ROGER BUTTON
Dan Simic puts the finishing touches on a sign for the grand opening Dec. 2 of Nokomis Antiques
Triangle, as Barbara Burton, owner of Fancy That; Eugenie Lanius, of Eugenie's Antiques; Marcia
Sevigny, of Full Circle at Rum Runners Antiques; Daniela Simic, manager of Rum Runners, and
dealer Tony Huff look on.


preferably 100 years old,
with pieces from 1740 to
the 1890s," said Simic.
Eventually he hopes
to bring 300 dealers
displaying antiques,


collectibles and fine art
to the 3-acre Nokomis
location.
Within the mall visitors
will find stores selling
Americana, Civil War


memorabilia, primitive
and period furniture,
bronze figures, Scottish
antiques and clothing.
There are American
Indian artifacts; nautical


lamps and accessories;
collections of cigar,
lap-desk and decorative
boxes; glass collectibles
and bottles; old 78 and
45 rpm records; mid-
century albums by the
Beatles and other bands;
sterling silver items;
vintage paintings; prints;
frames; mirrors; and
more.
In an adjoining build-
ing is Full Circle at
Rum Runners Antiques,
where Marcia Sevigny
has vintage, unique
and boutique clothing
from a prior era. Within
walking distance are the
stores of Don Elder on
U.S. 41 offering Asian &
fine antiques; Eugenie
Lanius Antiques, 104
East Nippino Trail, with
a wide range of specialty
antiques; and Barbara
Burton's Fancy That, 111
East Nippino Trail, show-
casing antique quilts and
collectibles.
Starting Saturday,
Dec. 10, until the end
of May, every second


Saturday there will be a
neighborhood outdoor
antiques show with
parking for 70 vehicles,
with dealers coming
from Naples to Tampa
and out-of-state on the
premises from 8 a.m. to
3 p.m. to sell antiques
and collectibles.
In Richmond, Va.,
the Simics found their
signature logo, the Rum
Runners skid typical of
the rum-running and
moonshining prevalent
in the areas. Then they
bought two rum barrels
at an auction. In front of
their antiques mall on
U.S. 41 is the bank they
have completely restored.
"We are reviving the
antiques stores existing
around here 15 years ago
by setting up Nokomis
Antiques Triangle as
our little Arcadia, with
chosen collectibles," said
Simic.

call 954-854-1991.

New building pitched as restaurant site


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

"We have gone into
the Development Review
Committee for a pre-
application process to
develop a 5,000-square-
foot box on the grass
strip adjoining the Bank
of America (now named
Venetian Business Center
Plaza) building at the
junction of West Venice
Avenue with Nassau
Street," said Jeff Char-
lotte, president of J.E.
Charlotte Construction
Corp. of Venice.
He is pitching the


location to a bunch of
potential tenants, includ-
ing national and local
restaurateurs.
"In trying to get a res-
taurant, Gecko's has been
talked to, but I person-
ally think a First Watch
would be perfect here,"
said Charlotte. "With the
circulation of Epiphany
Cathedral, it be a nice
little fit there. The task is
just trying to find what
we can maximize on
that land. We may have
multiple tenants in there
unless we get a First
Watch and they would
use the whole thing.


He has a meeting
arranged with First
Watch within a few days
and although it has been
opposed to opening in
Venice in the past, Char-
lotte said the company is
kind of opening its eyes
to it a little bit.
"Bank of America -
Venetian Business Center
Plaza has a wacky
parking lot and you
could get yourself killed
in there if you are not
careful so it is going to
be revamped providing
better circulation and
safety," he said.
His company has


recently completed the
renovation of the Bank
of America building,
which has an appealing
new exterior design by
Beebe Design Studios of
Venice.
Additionally, Char-
lotte is working with


the owner to get better
movement within the
bank building, enabling
the third floor to be
finished.
"The building has
two shafts but only one
elevator, so we are look-
ing at adding a second


elevator and rehabbing
the existing elevator," he
said. "This would allow
us to get the third floor
built out, and we know
of a large tenant who will
take the third floor."

Speeding, swerving lead to drug arrest


A two-door red Lin-
coln speeding down U.S.
41 while changing lanes
without
using a
turn signal
caught the
attention
of a Sara-
sota County
Sheriff's
SYPULA deputy, who
pulled over
the driver.
According to an SCSO
report:
A moderate level of
nervous behavior and
probation status for drug
possession for David
Anthony Sypula, 51, of
Venice, driver of the
automobile, heightened
the officer's curiosity.
Sypula consented to
a vehicle search. The
officer recovered two
pill bottles contain-
ing no less than four
controlled substances,
including 28 morphine
pills.
During the search Sy-
pula made spontaneous
statements, according to
police records, "indicat-
ing he didn't use but
sells the drugs to select
friends."
He was arrested on
eight counts, includ-
ing four counts of
possession of narcot-
ics for each drug with
intent to sell, carry-
ing a $10,000 bond on
each, and possession of
three additional drugs
without a prescription,
each carrying a $1,500
bond. He was also
charged with probation
violation for cocaine
possession.

Reid's contract to differ from Ley's


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

"Live and learn."
That's what Sarasota County
Commissioner Jon Thaxton said
commissioners have had to
do since approving a $265,000
settlement with former county
administrator Jim Ley in May.
Now, with County Attorney
Stephen DeMarsh in nego-
tiations with Ley's successor,
Alachua County Manager
Randall Reid, Thaxton said that
one of the problems commis-
sioners had with Ley's contract
- negotiated when Ley was
using that contract to force
Sarasota County to compete
with another jurisdiction for his
services, Thaxton said was a
"termination for cause" clause


"that proved to be a mistake."
"It just did not afford the
board the right to terminate the
contract for anything less than
a felony criminal conviction,"
Thaxton said. "That is just an
unrealistic bar to set for a public
servant. There has to be things
in there that deal with credibil-
ity, due diligence and those sorts
of things which are in this
new draft contract (for Reid)."
Reid's contract with county
commissioners likely will be
discussed publicly on Thursday
during a commission retreat,
with Reid in attendance.
Another concern for Thaxton
is a provision in the Sarasota
County Charter that "was a
strict, explicit prohibition
on the county administrator
participating in anything to do


with politics, outside of voting."
The charter calls for that to be
grounds for termination of the
county administrator.
Asked if he believed Ley was
violating that charter provision,
Thaxton said, "I believe he was.
He was going to government
inaugurations and Republican
Club events. Oh yeah he did
not start out doing that (when
he became administrator in
1997), but by the end, I think
that he was doing it."
Ley resigned following a
multijurisdictional corruption
probe of county purchasing
practices that led to other rev-
elations of mismanagement in
the Procurement Department.
He could not be reached for
comment Monday.
Thaxton said the contract the


county executed with Ley did
not in any way refer to or codify
the charter provision. Thaxton
brought it to DeMarsh's atten-
tion when they were negotiating
Ley's separation agreement. But
DeMarsh told him he believed
the employment contract would
be the "prevailing document" in
any litigation with Ley. (There
has been none.)
Thaxton's response: "That
isn't going to happen again."
Reached Monday, Reid said he
adheres to International City/
County Management Associa-
tion regulations, which prevent
managers from participating in
politics, other than voting.
"That's under our Code
of Ethics," Reid said. "That's
always been the way it has
been with me."


The "termination for cause"
clause and the charter provi-
sion are two of three ways in
which Reid's contract is "com-
pletely different" from Ley's,
Thaxton said. Additionally, it
includes language adhering to
the state law passed this year
that prohibits severance pack-
ages of more than 20 weeks'
salary for public employees.
Commission Chair Nora Pat-
terson also said Reid's contract
will be different from that of
his predecessor.
"We are working on a con-
tract, at this point, and it cer-
tainly will not be a duplication
of our contract with Jim Ley,"
she said, adding that, regarding
the severance provision, "We
will obey the state law."

Fla. lawmakers: Cyber Monday highlights online sales tax issue


By JOSH SALMAN
STAFF WRITER

Hundreds of thousands
of Floridians who skipped
the infamous lines on
Black Friday instead took
to their computers and
smart phones Monday for
the sale's rapidly growing
digital counterpart: Cyber
Monday.
And its rising popu-
larity has some Florida
lawmakers questioning
whether it's unfair to
local merchants.


A loophole in state law
allows Web-only com-
panies like Amazon to
omit charging sales tax
for purchases in Florida
- keeping up to $3 bil-
lion a year from state and
local governments and
undercutting traditional
merchants whose final
price includes the levy.
Florida legislators have
crafted a bipartisan bill
aimed at correcting the
issue, and they're using
Cyber Monday as ammo
for the fight.


"We need to level the
playing field," said Rep.
Michelle RehwinkelVasil-
inda, D-Tallahassee, who
sponsored the House
version. "Cyber Monday
really highlights the need
for this tax reform. Sales
tax is a rule of law that
people are just ignor-
ing, and until we get this
evened out, we will con-
tinue to siphon employ-
ment in our state."
Currently, any retailer
with a physical presence
in Florida, like a store or


warehouse, must charge
sales tax for online pur-
chases. Those that don't
can skip the require-
ment actually enticing
companies to expand
elsewhere.
Florida law says con-
sumers who shop online
must keep track of the
taxes owed and mail the
state a check each year.
The problem, Vasilinda
said, is nobody actually
does.
Florida TaxWatch esti-
mates the losses at about


$1 billion a year. The
Florida Chamber of Com-
merce says $3 billion.
A measure aimed at
bridging the gap has been
killed the previous two
legislative sessions by
GOP opponents who call
the bill a tax increase, but
with Gov. Rick Scott now
onboard, supporters hope
the third time's the charm.
"This isn't a tax increase,
just an adjustment to a
whole new economy,"
said Sen. Nancy Detert,
R-Venice. "The world has


changed. This puts our
local businesspeople at
an extreme disadvantage.
They're the folks paying
property taxes, creating
jobs in the community
and going to Little League
on the weekend."
Several commerce
groups, including the
Florida Retail Federation
and Florida Chamber of
Commerce, have come
out in strong support of
the measure.

Mote Marine caviar finds new market


FROM MOTE MARINE

Mote Marine produced its
first batch of Siberian caviar in
Sarasota County in 2006. Now
the delicacy has been picked up
by Whole Foods Market.
The caviar being sold under
a joint label with gourmet food
distributor Marky's is avail-
able at each ofWhole Foods
Market's 16 Florida stores.
When searching for natural
and organic items, Whole Foods
tries to find items locally, ac-
cording to JoeyWells, regional


specialty coordinator for Whole
Foods Market Florida Region.
"When we first heard of this
fabulous caviar being produced
right here in Florida, we knew
immediately that we had to carry
it in our stores," said Wells.
Whole Foods Market's farmed
seafood standards have made
it a leader in the industry and
were created after an intensive
two-year process that included
conducting extensive research
on fish farming, review of all the
best available science, consulta-
tion with the top environmental


organizations and visits to farms
worldwide.
That focus happens to line up
perfectly with Mote Aquaculture
Park's mission of developing sus-
tainable fish farming technolo-
gies that help lessen the pressure
on wild fish stocks and increase
food security in the U.S.
"Our missions intertwine nice-
ly we're just a perfect fit," said
Jim Michaels, manager of Mote's
Siberian sturgeon program.
Proceeds from product
sales support research and
development efforts at Mote, a


nonprofit organization.
Mote caviar and sturgeon
meat are produced on a state-of-
the art modern farm located in
eastern Sarasota County that fo-
cuses on developing and perfect-
ing the ability to re-use water to
grow food fish in order to mini-
mize the farm's environmental
footprint. Mote also follows strict

What the advisory
board sought on Tuesday
was a commitment from
council that it's ready to
support modernizing the
airport into what could be
the city's next economic
engine.
It was music to the ears
of Mayor John Holic and
council members in the
room. He answered by


requesting an action plan.
The advisory board
struggled for three years to
be heard, mostly because
it continued to pursue a
signature airport hotel.
While that may be pos-
sible years down the road,
it wasn't on the agenda
Tuesday.
"Perhaps we are looking
too far down (the line)
for an enterprise, and not
close enough for a starting
property," Holic said.
He supports add-
ing electricity and other
utilities to airport festival
grounds to draw more
events, like a recent airport

the event to generate

an economic impact of
more than $1 million.

Send a message to texting drivers


Despite back-to-back rejec-
tions, State Sen. Nancy Detert,
R-Venice, isn't giving up the
fight to get a no-texting-while-driv-
ing bill through the Legislature. Any
bill.
She said recently her proposed
legislation, SB 416, was back in the
hopper for the third year, this time
with a companion House bill spon-
sored by Rep. Ray Pilon, R-Sarasota.
Our hope is that Florida will finally
join the other 34 states (plus the Dis-
trict of Colombia) with anti-texting
laws.
Detert's bill isn't overly punitive.
Far from it. It would make texting
while driving a secondary offense;
police officers could only issue
citations if drivers were pulled over
for other reasons. In addition, the
offense would be a nonmoving


violation, which means a driver
wouldn't get points on his or her
license for a first offense.
It's about time.
Having a law on the books would
finally send a message and begin
to address a growing behavioral
problem, especially among younger
people. This seems as close as you
can get to the no-brainer category,
but the telecommunications indus-
try has had enough clout in Talla-
hassee to fight off any attempts to
strengthen these safety regulations
in the past.
It's a curious phenomenon, consid-
ering recent public opinion surveys.
The latest is from the AAA Founda-
tion for Traffic Safety, which found
that 95 percent of drivers surveyed
thought texting or mailing while
driving was a serious threat to their


personal safety. (By comparison,
93 percent expressed concern about
drinking and driving.) Some 87 per-
cent of respondents supported laws
against reading, typing or sending a
text message or email while driving.
In fact, half of the drivers surveyed
favored laws forbidding the use of all
types of cell phones even hands-
free devices for all drivers, young
and old.
Then again, the AAA survey
highlighted a "do as I say, not as I
do attitude" among many drivers.
While 88 percent thought talking
on a cell phone while driving was
dangerous, some two-thirds admit-
ted they had done it themselves in
the past month. While nearly all
thought texting while driving was
dangerous, 35 percent of all respon-
dents said they did it. Of those,


54 percent said they texted while
stopped at red lights, 27 percent
said they did it while driving on
residential streets and 16 percent
said they texted while on highways
with heavy traffic.
In reality, the numbers are prob-
ably higher. It just indicates that
some drivers will just continue to
use cell phones to talk and text
unless there is a stronger reason not
to. In other words, the threat of a
ticket.
There's no doubt that smart phone
and cell phone usage is becoming
more and more commonplace, and
that it will become more common
for people to talk and text when they
take the wheel of a car.
Maybe 2012 will be the year Florida
finally starts to put this distracting
practice on hold.


Clock is ticking


on Medicare plans


KATHY
MARMA
GUEST COLUMNIST

If you have a Medicare Part
D plan, now is the time to do
your homework.
Open enrollment ends
Dec. 7, several weeks earlier
than last year. Since many
plans are increasing their cost
sharing or putting limits on
the quantity of some medica-
tions, be sure to shop around
for the plan that best fits your
needs. As recent study by
AARP's Public Policy Institute
shows that costs are going
up for those who don't pay
attention.
First the good news. Con-
sumers continue to have a
wealth of choices an aver-
age of 31 plans per region.
Beneficiaries of modest
means will continue to have
access to the "extra help"
program of Low Income
Subsidies that will provide
relief from high drug costs.
All Part D beneficiaries will
see the coverage gap known
as the "doughnut hole" con-
tinue to shrink as a result of
the Affordable Care Act, and
those willing to pay more for
consistent coverage through
the gap should have some
more options.
Now the not-so-good news.
While the Centers for Medi-
care and Medicaid Services
said that premiums for
stand-alone Medicare Part D
plans will continue to average
around $30 next year, the PPI
study of the 10 most popular
plans showed only one with
a premium of less than $30.
LIS beneficiaries may have
to change plans in order to
keep the subsidy, as some
plans that formerly qualified
for extra help no longer do.
Higher-income Part D enroll-
ees will continue to pay higher
premiums as well.


A very important point for
shoppers is to remember that
premiums aren't the only
cost to watch. In 2012, some
popular plans will require
copayments of $90 or more
for "nonpreferred" brand-
name medications. Other
plans don't have copayments
of a certain cost but require
coinsurance of 20 percent to
46 percent of the total cost
of your medication; depend-
ing on how expensive a drug
is, the coinsurance could
be more or less than a flat
copayment. Either way, such
cost-sharing differences
greatly influence potential
out-of-pocket costs.
PPI found several notable
benefit designs among popu-
lar stand-alone Part D plans:
Two plans (Community
CCRx and First Health) will
require coinsurance for
branded drugs regardless of
tier, but will charge low copay-
ments for generics.
Cost sharing varies within
each tier for Humana's plans,
depending on whether
prescriptions are filled at
preferred or nonpreferred
pharmacies.
Two plans (HealthSpring
and BravoRx) will require
25 percent coinsurance for all
drugs, regardless of tier.
The best news of all is that
there is plenty of helpful
information for the attentive
shopper. Go to www.aarp.org/
medicare for a host of tips for
choosing the right Part D plan,
or call the state of Florida's
Elder Helpline (800-963-5337)
to make an appointment with
a volunteer SHINE counselor.
But act fast, because Dec. 7
will be here before you know
it.

fact sheet visit www.aarp.org/
research/ppi.

Not right. Regarding Gulf
Coast Community Foundation:
I would like to see the names
of the people on the board, the
towns and their salaries. I also
suggest that the funds be sepa-
rated, with the original funds
from the hospital being for the
designated towns that it was
originally set up for. All other
funds could go anywhere they
choose. I'm very sorry that the
circus building did not get any
money and Sarasota circus got
money. That does not seem
right.
Give. I think the foundation
should give the circus arena
money. I'm giving a donation
and I hope everyone else can
give some money to change
that eyesore into something
very admirable.
Thanks. This is a special
thank-you to a young man
who was driving a black car
with a red door on South U.S.
41 this week. He noticed, as we
did, a desert tortoise walk-
ing along the sidewalk on the
east side of the highway. He
stopped his car and picked up
this poor tortoise, which had
definitely made a wrong turn.
It was a very kind and good
thing for him to do, and I want
to thank him for that.
Good news. I just want to
thank the many businesses
that are remodeling, putting
lovely new buildings up. I think
it's a real facelift for Venice and
Sarasota County. I think we
all need to say thank you and
support these businesses.
Push-ups. Moving Black
Friday to midnight, and some
topping that by moving to
10 p.m. Thanksgiving Day?
Why not move the store open-
ings to Thursday, Thanksgiving
Day, at 3 to 4 p.m. and then
families could distrupt their
Thanksgiving in the middle of
the meal and forget about the
family? How about opening at
9 a.m. Thursday for three to
four hours so the store person-
nel can be adequately tired
during their meal. Why not
have Black Thanksgiving Eve
on Wednesday, or why not...


Let 'em


Have It
More Anne. I wish Anne Graf
would write more often. She
keeps us in touch with a great
many things we do not know
about.
Lawyer up. Regarding the
lady who was attempting to
adopt a kitty and told she was
too old, perhaps there is a
kind-hearted, loving attorney
who would like to volunteer
his or her time to make a trip
to try to persuade the lady at
the adoption center to let the
lady have the little kitty. This
lady is obviously practicing age
discrimination and coercion
to try to get the lady to make
a will and also endangering
her life since her life would be
happily extended by having
a pet. Maybe some attorney
would like to take this case to
get this lady and kitty together
for a happy life.
Bet on gambling. The
Gondolier thinks that Con-
necticut got a great deal by
putting up $300 million to get
Jackson Laboratory. We aren't
too good on betting on high-
tech gambles. Uncle Sam just
lost over $500 million on the
Solyndra deal. Sarasota County
hasn't done well with startup
companies. And just a decade
ago Swiftmud cost us mil-
lions investing in a sea water


desalination plant. Let's invest
in a casino, a sure winner.
New beginning. Let's start all
over. Dissolve the federal gov-
ernment. It is sick. A cleansing
is necessary. Tax states based
on population to support a
central defense. All other need-
ed activities such as Social
Security, Medicare, etc., would
be controlled by each state. We
can say goodbye to misfits like
Obama, Pelosi, Frank and the
rest. No more Solyndra, Green
nonsense, the EPA and such.
Goodbye public unions. Let
them get real jobs, if they can.
It is sick how many lawmak-
ers are millionaires on their
salaries. I am sure we have
potential Alexander Hamiltons
and Thomas Jeffersons waiting
in the wings to start rebuilding
our country.
Rat catchers. Hurray for the
coyotes. Just leave them alone.
They'll do a good job of keep-
ing pets where they belong -
that is, confined. They'll feed
on rats, raccoons and other
vermin in the city and even
clean up the feral cat colonies.
When they get overpopulated,
that's the time to start taking
action. For now, they're doing
a good job.
No names. I think requir-
ing identification on this site
would depreciate the fun that
it is. I think it would make
a verbal letter to the editor.
Leave it alone because it's fun.

Festival will celebrate history and the arts


STEVE
ALBEE
GUEST COLUMNIST

A series of informa-
tive, fun and entertain-
ing activities is being
planned, along with
appearances by interest-
ing writers, authors, self-
publishers, book pub-
lishers and other vendors
to make the city's first
Venice International
Book Fair & Writers Fes-
tival an enjoyable event
that local residents -
from children to retirees
- will want to attend.
Invitations are out to
writers all over Florida
and the response has
been favorable. It is
being planned as a sig-
nature event of the newly
formed Venice Arts and
Literary Society, which
is planning a series of
programs that promote
the arts and preserve
the unique history, arts,
cultural relevance and
literary qualities of Ven-
ice and Nokomis.
The inaugural pro-
gram of the Society will
feature former U.S. Sen.


and Florida Gov. Bob
Graham, who was a top
draw at the recent Miami
International Book Fair
and St. Petersburg Festi-
val of Reading. He will be
doing book signing and
discussing his new novel,
"Keys to the Kingdom."
Venice plays a significant
part in the historical tale
he weaves.
Graham served three
terms in the U.S. Sen-
ate and was chair of the
powerful Senate Intel-
ligence Committee when
Sept. 11 happened. Gra-
ham's visit to Venice will
be his first since Sept. 11.
The program is open
to the public. See www.
veniceals.org to RSVP to
the Graham program, or
call 941-567-9950.
The invitation to Gra-
ham to speak to the Soci-
ety is part of the effort
to expand the interest in
the Venice International
Book Fair & Writers Fes-
tival. The "Readings/Dis-
cussions With" series is
being planned as an inte-
gral part of the book fair
and will feature readings
from noted and enter-
taining authors, includ-
ing a poetry reading in


Italian and English.
The book fair will be
made up of booths com-
posed of writers, publish-
ers, new and used book
sellers, printers, illustra-
tors, memorabilia, his-
torical journals, collector
comic books and other
media-related items. A
French singer guitar-
ist and other musicians
will serenade attendees.
It will offer face paint-
ing for children and a
scavenger hunt for adults
with some great prizes
for the winners, such as a
weekend getaway. Some
of the area's most well-
known clowns are also
being invited to entertain
the crowd.
It will also include
information from area
nonprofit groups, along
with vendors offering
special items and other
historically significant
collectibles.
The "Readings/Dis-
cussions With" series
will take place in Venice
Theatre throughout the
day. The reading series
will open with a reading
on the history of Venice.
It's a weekend of fun,
learning and excitement.


It's a chance to meet
some of Florida's most
interesting characters,
writers, poets and jour-
nalists in person.
The book fair will
take place in downtown
Venice, Saturday, Feb. 11,
from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on
North Nokomis Avenue,
between Venice and
Tampa avenues. Vendors
will sell new and used
books and media-related
items. Authors will be
autographing their works.
The objective is to
create an annual upscale
book fair to attract
upward of 10,000 people.
It is part of an effort to
develop community iden-
tity, pride and a greater
interest in the arts.
The Venice Arts and
Literary Society is open
to all Venice and Noko-
mis citizens interested
in enjoying the experi-
ences of the arts and
literary world. Details are
available on the website,
www.veniceals.org.
Profits of the Society
will initially go to the
Triangle Inn Association
for the development
and expansion of the
museum in preservation


of the history of Venice. It
will also consider fund-
ing other community
programs as determined
by the board of advisers
and members.
The Society, even
though in its infancy,
has already attracted
the attention of several
writers and authors
interested in present-
ing to Society members.
The Society will hold a
number of readings and
other events throughout
the year from various
novelists, plus programs
that discuss Florida's
rich history, including
the history of the area
and travel. Other activi-
ties will include cultural
performances of dance
and music.
Additionally, the Soci-
ety is planning to host a
number of social events
for members, includ-
ing breakfast, lunch and
dinner functions with
distinguished guests. As a
member of VALS, mem-
bers will also be invited to
participate in an annual
trip to Europe that will
focus on the cultural and
historical aspects of vari-
ous cities and visits with


officials in those cities.
Sponsors include the
Venice Gondolier, city of
Venice, Venice Magazine,
USF Sarasota Manatee,
Venice Public Library,
Venice Theatre and
Venice High School. The
Venice International
Book Fair & Writers
Festival is opening the
doors and expanding the
arts and literary activities
that abound in the area,
with the hopes it will be
became an annual event
of the community. The
goal is to further enhance
the unique qualities and
lifestyle of Venice and
Nokomis.
PS.: The name "Ven-
ice" used to belong to
what is now Nokomis.
Mrs. Potter Palmer, who
owned the land, decided
to rename it from Horse
& Chaise. The name
"Nokomis" came from
Hiawatha's great-grand-
mother. Come to the
Book Fair on Feb. 11 and
get the whole story.

Longtime resident Steve
Albee is a descendant of
Dr Fred Albee, who hired
John Nolen to design the
city of Venice.


I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Age isn't the key
Editor:
To the gentleman in
a previous letter who
would be very interested
to "observe any person
70 years of age or older
ride up the overpass on a
bike with no gears": I am
the young age of 61 and
I have been able to pedal
over on my single-speed
bike. I have numerous
riding buddies in their
70s and 80s that are like-
wise able to make it over
the summit.
The overpass is a
challenge for young and
old alike. Often when
someone makes it over,
whether they have one
gear or many, it is to the
cheers of their fellow
riders.
Age is a number, not a
condition and we should
not use it as an excuse
for a sedentary life.

Steve Christian
Venice

It's about care,
not profit
Editor:
Thank you for the
excellent editorial, "Tread
lightly around public
hospitals." Having been
involved with hospitals
and health care, as well as
the preparation of nursing
and health-care students
for many years, I totally
agree with your analysis.
In this push to rid the
state of Florida of public,
tax-supported hospitals,
there are a few other
things to be considered.

Award-winning
Breakfast, Lunch A
& Dinner.


Clearly, Gov. Scott, the
former CEO of the private,
for-profit Columbia/HCA
hospital chain, doesn't
understand that public
hospitals and facilities are
quite different from pri-
vate ones. As you stated,
private, particularly for-
profit, institutions do not
provide the most costly
services, such as mater-
nal-child or psychiatry.
The business of for-
profit health-care institu-
tions is to make money.

Call me old-fashioned.
I did a post-doctoral

many years ago in health
systems management at
Harvard Graduate School
of Business Administra-
tion (the faculty also
included those from
the School of Medi-
cine, School of Law and
Graduate School of Pub-

in the curriculum did it
include the concept that


we should exploit the
poor, the sick, the young
and the old for profit!
I do have a request.
Would the Gondolier
please list the names
and credentials of those
persons the governor
appointed to his Florida
Commission on Review
of Taxpayer-Funded Hos-
pital Districts? Are there
any representatives from
tax-supported hospitals;
nursing administrators;
medical or nursing edu-
cators; or public health
officials?

meant that we must strive
to leave the stock market
at a higher level or to see
the wealthy pay lower
taxes? I don't think so.
The difference in
the two major political
parties today has never
been more striking and
transparent. It is obvious
that one party is on the
side of the vast majority
of Americans while the
other party has become
shockingly callous
toward American people
in general. Republicans
favoring large corpora-
tions and the wealthy
have taken precedence
over responding to and
supporting the rest of us.
Forty years ago,
Republicans were very
different. Back then,
they seemed to be much
more attuned to basic
American values. What
changed? Nowadays,
they appear to be out-of-
touch with the common
American and no longer
interested in making this
world a better place for
all of us.
When we vote next
November, the choices
are clearer than ever
before.

Light is little help
Editor:
I am writing about
the traffic light on Albee
Farm Road and Johnson
Lane. The other day a
person was struck cross-
ing this street. Today I
gave a needy person a
motorized wheelchair
and she informed me
that some of the people
at the nursing home are
afraid to cross the road
there because the but-
tons at the crossing don't
work right.
I was delivering the
chair from the Salva-
tion Army. I pressed the
button. It worked for a
few seconds, and then a
lady in a red VW Beetle
almost ran me over,
either because she was
not paying attention to
the light or because it
stopped flashing when I
was only 2 feet out into
the intersection.
Something should be
done with this light and


others like it, and bigger
fines should be given out
to people who disregard
this crosswalk light.

Pain Registers In The Brain


DR. DAN BUSCH, DR. ERENE ROMANSKI
CHIROPRACTOR
Brain scans have recently revealed that
people in chronic pain show a constant
state of activity in areas of the brain that
should be at rest. This finding could help
to explain why chronic pain sufferers
have higher rates of depression and
anxiety. It seems that chronic pain alters
the way that sufferers process


information that is not pain-related. As a
result, the endurance of pain over a
prolonged period of time affects brain
response to tasks that are completely
unrelated to pain and require only
minimal attention. With this new focus on
chronic pain's life-disrupting effect,
sufferers have all the more reason to seek
chiropractic care that will isolate causes
of pain and treat them effectively.

Free throws lift Venice over DeSoto


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

This season, Venice knows
winning games might come
down to making free throws.
The Indians took advantage of
this in their first regular-season
game as they connected on 25-
of-27 from the charity stripe to
pull out a hard-fought 63-57 win
over DeSoto County on Tuesday
at Venice High.
In the fourth quarter alone,
the Indians (1-0) made 16-of-16
and they needed every one as
the quick and athletic Bulldogs
(1-3) kept the pressure on.
DeSoto scored the final six
points of the third quarter to tie
the game at 42-42.
A 3-pointer by junior guard
Chris Hann with 6:19 left gave
Venice a 49-44 cushion.
However, the Bulldogs
wouldn't go away as Jimmy
Williams scored off a rebound
then Jonathan Richardson sank
a 3-pointer with 4:34 for another
tie at 49-49.
Venice lived at the foul line the
rest of the game as the Indi-
ans hit 12-of-12 from the line
over the final four minutes, 30
seconds.
"We did some things well and
struggled in some areas," said
Venice coach James Slaton. "I
thought as a whole our guys
really executed down the stretch
when the game was on the line
and in doubt. Last year, we don't
win that game. We would have
probably turned the ball over,
missed some free throws."
In the fourth quarter alone,
Venice was 16-of-16 from the
line including a 12-of-12 from
Hann, who finished with a
game-high 25 points on five field
goals and 14-of-16 from the line.
"It's something we really, really
take pride in," Slaton said about

the free-throw shooting. "This
morning before school, they
shot 100. They shoot probably
close to 75 every day. We spend
a lot of time on it. We know for
us, we have to able to make free
throws and take care of the ball.


If we do that we are going to
be in a lot of games and have a
chance to win."
"The administration of the
game kind of hurt us," said
DeSoto County coach Richard
Koonce. "Thirty free throws to 12

(actually it was 27 to 11). That is
so unfair."
The Bulldogs missed eight
from the line including five in
the key fourth quarter.
"That is one thing I told my
guys," said Koonce. "We make
them, we win the game. It hap-
pens."
Venice jumped out with a 12-6
lead in the first quarter as senior
guard Zach Flerlage scored five
of his 21 points and Devin Cruz-
Klein added five more points.
The Indians led by as many as
nine points early in the second
quarter before DeSoto County
cut the deficit to two points.

If you bought or leased a new car or truck from an authorized dealer
located in Florida during Jan. 1, 2001 to April 30, 2003, you could
get a payment from a class action settlement.


A settlement resolves claims against General
Motors of Canada, Ltd. ("GMCL") in related
lawsuits currently pending in California, Florida,
New Mexico and Wisconsin. This notice is for
Florida class members (defined below). The
lawsuits are about an alleged conspiracy among
several automakers to keep Canadian new
car exports out of the U.S. The settlement will
provide $20.15 million to pay claims of class
members in all four states. If you qualify, you
may submit a claim form to get a payment, or
you can exclude yourself from the settlement, or
object to it.
Who Is a Member of the Florida Class?
You are a Florida class member and could get a
payment from the settlement if you purchased or
leased a new passenger car, light truck or SUV
of one of the following makes from an authorized
dealer located in Florida during January 1, 2001
through April 30, 2003:
Acura Honda Mini
Audi Hummer Nissan
BMW Infiniti Oldsmobile
Buick Jaguar Plymouth
Cadillac Jeep Pontiac
Land Rover
Chevrolet Lexus Saab
Chrysler Lincoln Saturn
Dodge Mazda Toyota
Ford Mercedes VW
GMC Mercury Volvo
What Are the Lawsuits About?
The lawsuits claim that several automakers
conspired with each other to prevent cheaper,
but virtually identical, new cars from being
exported from Canada to the U.S. The lawsuits
allege that this violated state antitrust and
consumer protection laws and caused new
vehicle prices in California, Florida, New
Mexico and Wisconsin to be higher than they
should have been. GMCL asserts that it has
acted lawfully and independently and that
there is no legal or factual basis for these
lawsuits. This is just a summary-for more
information and to view a detailed Notice, visit
www.CanadianAutoSettlement.com.
What Does the Settlement Provide?
GMCL has agreed to create a fund of $20.15
million to be divided among class members


from all four states who submit valid claims.
A Settlement Agreement, available at the
website below, describes all of the details
about the proposed settlement. Your share of
the fund will depend on how many valid claims
are submitted, what vehicle you bought, and
when you bought it. The detailed Notice at
paragraph 9 and Appendix A describe in detail
how your payment will be calculated. Go to
www.CanadianAutoSettlement.com.
How Do You Ask for a Payment?
To get a payment, you must submit a claim, which
you should do online. The website contains all
the information you need to submit a claim. You
must submit your claim by February 2, 2012.
If you do not have Internet access, please call
1-877-264-6815 for more info and to learn how
to submit a claim by mail.
What Are Your Other Options?
If you don't want to be legally bound by the
settlement, you must exclude yourself by
January 23, 2012, or you won't be able to
sue, or continue to sue, GMCL about the legal
claims in this case. If you exclude yourself, you
can't get any money from this settlement. If you
stay in the settlement, you may object to it by
February 6, 2012. The detailed Notice explains
how to exclude yourself or object.
The Florida Court will hold a hearing on
March 1, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. to decide whether
to approve the settlement of the case pending in
Florida. The hearing will be held before Judge

Almost all purchasing changes started


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER
All but four of the 263 items
on the county government's
list of procurement recom-
mendations are in some stage
of implementation, Interim
County Administrator Terry
Lewis wrote in his latest pro-
curement status report.
Some 45 items have been
concluded as of Nov. 14, up from
39 in his Oct. 11 report. New
changes include: professional
development plans and training
for Procurement Department


staff; assignment of a project
manager to implement procure-
ment improvements; customer
service training; and generation
and active management of open
purchase order reports.
Some 159 purchasing changes
are in progress, up from 134
in October. Many of these
items relate to modifications
or updates to the procurement
code and procurement manual,
"usually involving the strength-
ening of existing clauses
through addition of more direct
and straightforward language,
modification of technology, and


the development and delivery
of training," Lewis wrote.
As many as 55 changes are
still under review, such as
"policy and procedure revisions
and technology enhancements,
including determination of a
complete document manage-
ment and indexing system,"
which currently is under review
by a technical team, Lewis
wrote. There were 59 items
under review in October.
Of the four items not yet
under way, two are related to
a workload assessment of the
Procurement Department after a


12-month period of implement-
ing the improvements, while
two regard the systematic use
of reports and measurement
of processes that are still under
development, Lewis wrote.
There were 31 recommended
changes not yet started in
October.
Staff began implementing
the recommendations in June.
As the number of completed
changes increases, more new
improvements are pending. A
third report by the office of Clerk
of the Circuit Court and County
Comptroller Karen Rushing,


dated Nov. 8, is being analyzed
by county staff, who will incor-
porate additional necessary
changes into the current efforts
to improve county procurement.
The county processed 2,874
purchase orders worth almost
$279 million in fiscal year
2009-10.
One of the items found
in Rushing's random sam-
ple of purchases was that
about 90 percent of the time
county staff bought products
before purchase orders were
completed.

'Amazing' man killed crossing U.S. 41


By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER
What was supposed to be a
festive Thanksgiving gathering of
patrons who call Tarzan's Jungle
Bar and Grill their second home
was agonizing for Pete Koenig.
Just two days earlier, Koenig's
friend, an 88-year-old World War
II veteran, was struck and killed
by an SUV near the neighbor-
hood bar.
Authorities say the man,
who lived nearby, was crossing
U.S. 41 at River Road around
6 p.m. Walking north across the
westbound lanes, near Tarzan's,


he walked into the path of a 1988
GMC Jimmy driven by Richard
Alan Danhausen, 66, of North
Port, who was in the right turn
lane, the FHP reported.
Alcohol was not a factor in
the accident, officials said. No
charges are expected.
Neither Danhausen, who
could not be reached for com-
ment Friday, nor his passenger,
Lewis Wayne Bray, 51, of Venice,
was hurt.
Now, FHP is searching for the
next of kin of the South Venice
man before his name will be
released.


Koenig said he only knew his
6-foot-6 friend with an "amazing
smile" as "Bob."
"I guarantee he had one hell of
a history," Koenig said Friday. "He
was aWorldWar II Marine. He
had five landings not one or
two, but five. He was ducking bul-
lets, mortars and hand grenades
all of the time. He didn't like to
talk about his military experi-
ences, but I bet he has medals. As
aVietnam veteran, I couldn't hold
a candle to his boots."
Koenig said Bob enjoyed golf-
ing but wasn't able to drive to the
course anymore.


"His license was taken from
him as he got older because
he had circulation problems in
his feet," he said. "He walked
to Tarzan's Bar every day from
his home. He loved having his
own chair at Tarzan's. He wasn't
a drinker. He'd come to the bar
and watch the ball game and eat
a sandwich. He didn't like to eat
alone."
Friends plan to hold a memo-
rial service for Bob.
"Our problem is, we don't
have much information about
Bob's family, like if he has any
living relatives," Koenig said. "I


don't want him to be left at the
morgue and forgotten. This man
was amazing, and we feel like we
need to do all we can for him and
preserve his memory."
Koenig said he will wait for
more information from the FHP,
but will work with any veterans
organization that wants to do a
memorial in Bob's name.
Anyone with more information
about Bob or how to reach his
family is urged to call the FHP
at 941-483-5911. Anyone who
wants to help Koenig with Bob's
memorial can call 941-237-6174.

Venice Regional Medical Center's
State-of-the-Art Technology and
Procedures in Cardiology Exceed
National Average
The cardiology team of physicians, nurses, technologists
and support staff at Venice Regional Medical Center offers a
comprehensive service line of diagnostic and interventional
procedures, as well as after care, to treat all aspects of cardiac
disease. In 2010, our team performed more than 10,000
cardiac procedures. These healthcare specialists are also
available 24/7 for the emergency treatment of patients
experiencing acute myocardial infarction (heart attack).

Patients experiencing a heart attack have a much better chance
of survival if the blood clot causing the heart attack is treated
within 90 minutes. The percentage of hospitals nationwide
that achieve this time to treatment is 81 percent. In 2010,
patients at Venice Regional Medical Center received this
lifesaving procedure 98 percent of the time, allowing us to
achieve the highest percentage of success in Sarasota County.

In addition to being a certified heart failure center, Venice
Regional Medical Center was recently surveyed by the Society
of Chest Pain Centers and recommended for Chest Pain
accreditation. This, combined with being named a Thomson
Reuters Top 50 Cardiovascular Hospital for five consecutive
years, is why Venice Regional is the medical facility of choice
for our patients. "We have changed the nature of cardiology
and surgery at Venice Regional Medical Center from a low
volume program to a vibrant program that has become the
preferred provider of cardiac services in this area," said Rick
Weirzbicki, Director of the Cath Lab at Venice Regional
Medical Center. "We deliver superior clinical outcomes equal
to large, metropolitan academic centers with the personal
attention and care of a community hospital."

The division of Cardiology at Venice Regional provides the
following procedures:
Diagnostic cardiac catheterization
Interventional cardiology
Permanent pacemaker implantation
Implantable cardiac defibrillator
Biventricular devices
Peripheral intervention
Radial procedure program
3-D ECHO ultrasound
Transthoracic and transesophageal ECHO ultrasound
Tilt table testing

The Importance of

Hand Washing:

Keeping hands clean is one of the most
important things we can do to stop the
spread of germs and stay healthy. Hand
washing is simple but serious. Without
proper hand cleaning, a single infection
can quickly spread among family and
friends.
When to wash:
Before, during and after preparing
food
Before eating food
Before and after caring for someone
who is sick
Before and after treating a cut or
wound
After using the toilet
After changing diapers or cleaning
up a child who has used the toilet
After blowing your nose, coughing
or sneezing
After touching an animal or animal
waste
After touching garbage
How to wash:
Wet your hands with clean, running
water (warm or cold) and apply soap.
Rub your hands together to make
a lather and scrub them well; be sure
to scrub the backs of your hands,
between your fingers, and under your
nails.
Continue rubbing your hands for at
least 20 seconds. Need a timer?
Hum the "Happy Birthday" song
from beginning to end twice.
Rinse your hands well under running
water.
Dry your hands using a clean towel
or air dry them.
How to use hand sanitizer:
Apply the product to the palm of
one hand, rub your hands together
and rub the product over all surfaces
of your hands and fingers until your
hands are dry
Remember, it only works where it
touches!
Hand sanitizers are not effective
when hands are visibly dirty.
It is important to remember that 15-20
seconds of scrubbing your hands at a sink
or rubbing on hand sanitizer could be
the most important thing that you do for
yourself or your family.

Turner's 22 trips to Thailand





yield many rewards

Roscoe Turner
builds hospitals.
He also builds
schools, teaches
English and com-
puter skills and even
repairs toilets.
Turner does all this
in Thailand, enduring
15-hour flights and pay-
ing his own way for the
privilege.
"As I grew up, there
was no job I didn't do,"
he said. "My father would
not allow me to say
'can't.'"
The first story about
Turner and his mission
appeared on this page in
2003. As you read this,
Turner is on his way back
home to Venice from his
22nd trip.
Turner had gone back
to a U.S. Army Special
Forces parachute jump-
ers reunion in Thailand
that year. He saw people
in need, especially chil-
dren. One little girl in
particular tugged at his
heart, he said. No sooner
had he returned home
than he was making
plans to go back, at his
own expense, to help.
He enlisted his Special
Forces buddies and by
the end of that trip some
Thai children had gained
a small but new school,
including new toilets.
The schools are about
the only place in these
villages where there are
electricity and running
water.
"This time we are
building new toilets at
two schools, fixing up
old toilets at two schools,

refurbishing roofs where
four teachers live at
one school and offering
some classroom help,"
Turner said. "We will put
a new roof on a building.
It doesn't take much to
make something nice."
This is a typical trip for
Turner and his helpers,
who have come from
Australia, Canada and
Arizona as well as Venice
and Sarasota to help the
cause.
He formed an alliance
with fellow Rotarians
in Thailand. They help
with securing materials
and delivering them to
building sites and also
with housing and trans-
portation for Turner and
his helpers. While all that
keeps the costs down,
each of the volunteers still

pays anywhere from
$1,300 to $2,000 per trip
for airfare, lodging, meals
and in-country transpor-
tation. Volunteers also
commit to a two-week
stay and to carry three
pieces of luggage filled
with items needed by the
village people where they
will work.
"The airline lets me
bring three 70-pound
bags," Turner said.
Turner had a total of
20 people on this trip,
including an 83-year-old
woman from Venice.
Turner's mission has
succeeded because of
his drive and help from
a lot of good people and
companies, but there
was one big problem last
year when someone at
the company that was
arranging the air tickets
cashed the check and


"ran off with the money,
almost $20,000."
Saddened but not dis-
couraged, Turner and his
helpers made other plans
and completed the trip.
"Thailand is exactly on
the back side of the earth
from us," Turner said to a
class of fourth- and fifth-
grade students at Taylor
Ranch School a week
before departing on this
22nd trip. "It is about the
size of Massachusetts and
New Hampshire together
but has 21 million people
in Bangkok alone."
Thailand is a monarchy,
he continued. Its 84-year-
old king is the oldest
reigning monarch in the
world. He has been on
the throne for 64 years.
Thai schools begin at
8:30 a.m. with the raising
of the flag and a prayer

building.
or shine, he said.
Students wear uni-
forms but on Fridays the
children dress accord-
ing to their tribal legacy.
Turner said there are
six main tribes in the
country.
Because many chil-
dren have never been to
school, especially in the
areas where Turner and
his helpers go, it would
not be unusual to see a
14-year-old boy in a first-
grade class.
"He is not dumb but
he never went to school
before," Turner said.
The children might
ride bicycles five to seven
miles from home to get
to school, where they will
live all week, returning
home on Friday. They
are given bicycles if they
live more than two miles
from the school and may
use them only to go back
and forth to school.
To keep their school
clean, they leave their
shoes outside
if they have
shoes. One
boy brings his
baby sister to
school with
him because
his parents -
are dead
and there is
no one to
care for her
while he is
in school.
Turner
said the
little girl
he saw on PHOT-o COu
his first
trip who Roscoe Turnerc
so moved planting in front
him to do helped to erect
something Thailand.


for these children is 11
and now in sixth grade.
The day before Turner
flew to Thailand, he
returned to Taylor Ranch
School to pick up letters
written by its students to
the students in Thailand.
He had told them to keep
the letters very simple so
the children would un-
derstand them and also
learn some English from
them. He said he would
return with letters from
the children in Thailand.
Turner also was hop-
ing to connect the Thai
and American students
via Skype at 8 a.m. one
morning, which would
be 8 p.m. in Thailand.
As soon as he returns
from one trip, plans for
the next trip begin. If you
want to accompany him
on trip 23 or want to do-
nate to the cause, contact
Turner at Roscoes Thai
projects@comcast.net.

WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
4873K 3AK98 0K 73411062


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
16 Pass 1)
22 Pass ?
What do you bid now?


WEST
Pass


A Any way you look at it, on this
auction there is no reason to think
that your nine-loser hand can
produce game opposite partner's
announced minimum. Pass while you
are still at a makable level.

Q 2 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:
4 A964 AK982 0 86 6 103

The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
16 Pass 1V Pass
2V Pass ?
What do you bid now?

A You have the combined values for
game, but not necessarily in hearts.
There is a possibility that partner has
a minimum opening bid including
four spades and only three hearts. To
investigate the possibility, bid two
spades now.

Q 3 North-South vulnerable, as
South you hold:

A 106 K2 0 87536AKJ93

The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
16 Pass 2 6 Pass
2V Pass ?
What action do you take?

A Your two-level response promised
another bid. However, your clubs are
not rebiddable at the three-level and
you should avoid bidding notrump
without a diamond stopper. Take a
preference to the longer of partner's
two suits, which is more likely to be
spades. Bid two spades.

Q 4 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:


AK 10 AKJ320 856J954


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
16 Pass 2
34 Pass ?
What do you bid now?


WEST
Pass


A You cannot be sure what the right
level or strain is going to be after
partner's high reverse. All you can do
is continue to describe your hand and
a raise to four clubs is a standout -
it leaves all your options open.

Q 5 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:
6AJ10AK9840K 107634K6


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
16 Pass 2V
34 Pass ?
What do you bid now?


WEST
Pass


A You need more information to
help you decide. The obvious way to
investigate is to bid three diamonds.
That promises nothing about
diamonds, it is simply fourth-suit
forcing. Partner's next bid might help
clarify the situation.

Q 6 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
6J6532J86 KJ7 4Q76


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
1A Pass 26
2NT Pass ?
What do you bid now?


WEST
Pass


A Your 8 points are just about
enough to accept partner's invitation.
Since you have already supported
spades and since you have no ruffing
values and some useful fillers in the
unbid suits, bid three no trump now.
Partner is free to correct.

Lady and In the 10 years the Planta-
tail and tion Community Founda-
ruper tion has been in operation,
nonprofits in Venice received
event, about $2 million. In 2010
cars the foundation distributed


$100,000, and that is the goal
for 2011.
The 500 members believe
in sharing their blessings
with the community. They
also believe in sharing their
time holding garage sales,
golf tournaments, dances and
raffles. They enjoy their work
and the fruits of their labor are
proof their work is good. Three
cheers to Dick and Gail Wolf
for chairing the first fundraiser
of the season, Royal Ride and
Fall Frolic Gala.
Each of us benefits from their
generosity. Among the recipi-
ents are the Venice Symphony,
local libraries, agencies like Our
Mother's House and a long list
of others.
"You don't have to be a
member of the foundation to
volunteer," said board member
Cheryl McAvoy.


To volunteer, call 941-493-4876.

The special person of this
week is Vicki Lesnick.
This terrific lady recently cel-
ebrated her 90th birthday with
about 100 family members and
friends. She volunteers on Mon-
days at the Bistro at the Senior
Friendship Centers. She enjoys
cooking and baking and makes
her Polish pierogi and golumpki
for all to enjoy.
She exercises at the center,
enjoys meals out with friends,
especially lunch at Wendy's, and
makes life a little brighter and
better for everyone she knows.
She is the youngest 90-year-old
in town.
Vicki Lesnick is one of the
seniors who make Venice a great
place to live.


Birthday girl Vicki Lesnick,
left, and her daughter and
son-in-law, Micki and Alan
Carter, celebrate her 90th
birthday with friends at
the Jacaranda West Golf
and Country Club.


Vicki Lesnick blows out the candles on her birthday cake as her
great-grandchildren, Madison, left, Emma, Ava and Caroline,
watch and help.

Dick and Gail Wolf are pleased to chair the Royal Ride and
Fall Frolic Gala fundraiser for the Plantation Community
Foundation.

Shingles aftermath can be REX MORGAN By Woody Wilson and Graham Nolan
gWHT'rS KELLYni al o t break s 1
worse than initial outbreak Imi t


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
Two years ago I had
shingles, and I now suf-
fer the aftereffects of it.
The sores went away in a
month, but the stinging,
burning, throbbing pain
is still with me. I cannot
wear clothing over the
affected shoulder. No
medicines have eased the
pain so far. Is there any
help? -M.L.
ANSWER: You now are
dealing with postherpetic
neuralgia, pain that
lingers long after the
shingles rash has gone.
The virus that causes
shingles is the same virus
that causes chickenpox.
Almost every adult on this
continent harbors that
virus, now called herpes
zoster. It lives on in nerve
cells. From time to time,
at older ages, it wakens
from its hibernation,
travels down the nerve
to the skin and causes an
outbreak of blisters on a
red base. The outbreak
goes away in about three
weeks. Pain can linger for
a long time months,
to years. In traveling
down the nerve, the virus
damaged it.
I can list some of the
postherpetic neuralgia
medicines. Two are anti-
depressants nortripty-
line and amitriptyline -
given not for depression
but for pain relief. Cym-
balta (duloxetine) is an-
other antidepressant that
can lessen postherpetic
pain. Lyrica (pregabalin)
is an anti-seizure medi-
cine that's approved for
this problem. Neurontin
(gabapentin) is another
seizure medicine used for
control of the lingering
pain of shingles. Capsa-
icin lotion, cream or gel
(Zostrix, Capsin, R-Gel)
is applied directly to the
involved skin. A higher
concentration of cap-
saicin comes as a patch
that's applied in the doc-
tor's office, left on for an
hour and then removed.
Treatment can be repeat-
ed in three months. It's
called Qutenza. Another
skin patch is the Lido-
derm patch. The latest
medicine is Gralise, an
extended-release form of
gabapentin Neurontin.
It requires fewer doses.
The entire shingles
story is covered in the
booklet on that topic.
Readers can obtain a copy

DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
You had a column in the
paper about the shaking
illness that affected ac-
tress Katharine Hepburn.
You said it wasn't nerves.
I meant to keep the col-
umn, but the paper got
thrown out. Would you
repeat the information?
--C.R.
ANSWER: The illness
is essential tremor, also
called familial tremor
because it often turns up
in many members of a
family. It's isn't "nerves" in
the popular sense of that
word implying nervous-
ness. It has to do with a
dysfunction of the motor-
control part of the brain.
"Motor" here indicates
muscle action.
Essential tremor makes
it hard to bring a spoon-
ful of soup to the mouth,
to write or to do anything
requiring precise use of
the hands. The tremor
can affect the head, as it
did in Ms. Hepburn's case.
It might even give the
voice a trembling quality.
Propranolol or primi-
done can suppress the
tremor for most people,
if treatment is necessary.
Some people are so mild-
ly affected that they don't
want treatment. Others
are so profoundly affected
that medicines can't con-
trol the shakiness. In such
cases, brain stimulation
often can restore normal
movement.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
As someone preparing
for a liver biopsy, please
discuss the procedure, re-
covery and possible side
effects. R.J.
ANSWER: Doctors
perform a liver biopsy
with a needle attached to
a suction device that can
capture a thin piece of
the organ for microscopic
examination. The needle
is inserted through the
skin over the liver. First
the doctor cleans the skin
with an antiseptic and
often numbs it. The pro-
cedure takes less than a
minute. You return home
shortly thereafter.
Side effects are rare.
Bleeding is possible. So is
infection. Neither hap-
pens frequently.
You don't have to
prepare yourself in any
special way.

Cream-soup recipe


Dear Heloise: I am
trying to find the recipe
for the cream soup that
can be used in place
of a can of mushroom
soup. I want to make a
chicken casserole, and I
can no longer use canned
soup because of the high
sodium content. There is
salt in everything, I have
discovered. Dortha K.,
Great Bend, Kan.
Salt is not an added
ingredient in this Helo-
ise's Non-Fat Cream Soup
recipe, which can serve as
a base for any cream soup
you make. For the chicken
bouillon powder, there are
salt-free versions avail-
able. You will need:
1 cup nonfat dried milk
powder
1 tablespoon dried
onion flakes
2 tablespoons corn-
starch
2 tablespoons chicken
bouillon powder
1/2 teaspoon dried
basil, crushed
1/2 teaspoon dried
thyme, crushed
1/4 teaspoon black
pepper
Mix these ingredients
together and store in an
airtight container. Then,
when you want to make
your soup, you will add:
2 cups cold water
1/2 cup of the main
ingredient (for example,
mushroom for a mush-
room cream soup)
In a large saucepan over
medium heat, place the
water and pre-made mix,
heating until it is thick.
Then add the main ingre-
dient of your

choosing and cook until
done. You always can add
more water if the soup
becomes too thick. Finish
by seasoning to your own
taste. This recipe is in-
cluded in my pamphlet of
All-Time Favorite Recipes.
For a copy, send $5 and

stamped (64 cents) enve-
lope to: Heloise/All-Time
Favorites, P.O. Box 795001,
San Antonio, TX 78279-

calories, try using nonfat
dried milk powder in your
recipes that call for whole
milk. Heloise

Heloise update
Dear Readers: To re-
move stubborn coffee or
tea stains from cups and
mugs, the older hints are
to use a denture tablet,
table salt or baking soda.
There is a Heloise Up-
date: Take about a table-
spoon of dishwasher
detergent (powder), put
it in the cup or mug and
add boiling water. Let it
sit for five to 10 minutes.
When the time is up,
with no scrubbing neces-
sary, the stain usually is
gone. Heloise

Wife's affair with husband's

son is bound to end badly


DEAR ABBY: I married
"Raymond" in 2004. I met
his son, "Bill," a year be-
fore the wedding and have
been in a relationship with
him ever since. (He's mar-
ried to one of my friends
and has a child with her.)
Raymond supports me
financially and provides all
the necessities house,
car, food, clothes, etc.
- without my having to
work. But Bill supports me
emotionally, and there's
more of a "connection."
I have learned that
marriages dissolve for one
of two reasons: money
or sex. The money is
there, but Raymond and I
haven't been romantic in
more than a year.
Am I walking into a
ring of fire by keeping the
relationship with Bill? Ray
says he loves me and cares
about me, but only when
I ask how he feels about
me. With Bill, I don't have
to ask he says it. IN A
QUANDARY
DEAR IN A QUANDARY:
May I mention a third
reason that marriages break
up? It's when one spouse
discovers that the other has
been cheating. If your mar-
riage to Raymond, who has
endowed you with all the
worldly goods he can, is of
any importance to you, tell
him that although you're
living in style, all of your
needs are not being met.
Give him a chance to fulfill
the rest of them. It doesn't
take a clairvoyant to predict
that if you don't value what
you've got, you will lose it.
DEAR ABBY: It has
been a difficult year. The
brother of one of my dear
friends had a massive
stroke and she is now his
caretaker. Another friend's
15-year-old son recently
committed suicide, and
a third friend's 23-year-
old daughter is in the late
stages of MS. I also have
several friends who are
dealing with cancer.
I always feel lost about
what to say or how to
reach out and help. How
do I respond in these situ-
ations? HURTING FOR
MY FRIENDS
DEAR HURTING: You
don't have to say anything
profound in order to be sup-
portive. The way to respond
is to do for them what you


Dear Abby

would hope someone would
do for you in similar circum-
stances. Call your friends
regularly and keep them
informed about what's going
on. Ask how they are doing.
If they need to vent, listen.
If you have spare time, offer
to cook them a meal, do
some laundry, or give them
a few hours to run errands
by keeping their sick relative
company. I'm sure it will be
appreciated.
DEAR ABBY: I am a
20-year-old mother of a
1-year-old boy who means
the world to me. I was
raped two months ago and
recently learned that I am
pregnant. I am scared to
death of telling my mother.
When my son was born,
his father left for his tour of
duty in Iraq, and I moved
in with her. She is 57 and
has helped me out in every
way she can since he was
killed on his mission. I love
my mother dearly and don't
know what I would do with-
out her, but I am at a loss
about how to tell her about
this pregnancy. Your advice
would be appreciated. -
SCARED TO DEATH
DEAR SCARED TO
DEATH: Your mother
should have been told
about the rape when it
happened. You should
have also informed the
police, and received coun-
seling and emergency con-
traception and medication
to prevent an STD. If you
haven't seen an OB/GYN,
schedule an appointment
immediately to ensure that
the baby you're carrying
will be born healthy.
You also need to tell your
mother before your preg-
nancy becomes obvious, so
the two of you can decide
whether you can afford
to raise another child or if
you should place the child
for adoption. Please don't
wait. The longer you do,
the harder the discussion
will be.


"Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after
righteousness: for they shall be filled."-- Matthew 5:6
There is one hunger and thirst that we know can be
satisfied. Hunger and thirst for God and He will never
disappoint you.

The bidding:

Opening lead: King of 0

East's pre-emptive raise to four
diamonds made life difficult for


South. Would a double be for
takeout? If so, in which suits? South
decided that the safest choice was to
bid his good five-card spade suit, and
he ended in a reasonable spot.
West led the king of diamonds,
taken in dummy with the ace as East
followed with the deuce. A spade to
the queen lost to the king. A club shift
now would have sunk the contract. If
you presume that declarer cannot
have three hearts (he would surely
have bid four hearts, the known
eight-card fit, rather than speculate
on spades, some sort of case can be
made for shifting to a club and giving
partner two club ruffs. East would
have been able to ruff two clubs to go
with a trick in each major and set the
contract. Unfortunately West tried to
cash a diamond, and the game sailed
home.

Saturday and at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. Sunday, the theater will present
The Four Aces. Think "Three Coins in the Fountain" and "Sincerely."

performing together for more than 30 years.
If you do not have your tickets for "A Christmas Carol" which is
playing Dec. 16-18 with Eric Watters as Scrooge for the 10th year,
order your tickets at the same time. This is as big a Christmas
tradition in town as the annual Venice Christmas Boat Parade.
That begins at 6 p.m. Saturday night.
Sunday, from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. the Foxrun Trio will perform a
benefit concert for the Venice Circus Arts Foundation. Also there
will be SueFlay, a delightful clown and foundation volunteers selling
T-shirts and accepting donations to its Save the Arena fund.
In Sarasota, The Players presents its holiday show, "It's a
Wonderful Life" Dec. 1-12. For more information, call 941-365-2494.
Over in Kissimmee, Shrek is welcoming guests to Ice!, the
fantastic carved ice extravaganza at the Gaylord Palm Hotel.
Mickey (the mouse) is welcoming friends to his Very Merry
Christmas party now through Dec. 18. For more information,
call 407-934-7639.


Plans to move canceled ABC
soap operas online fall apart
BY MEG JAMES
LOS ANGELES TIMES
Ambitious plans to create Internet versions of the
doomed daytime soap operas "All My Children" and "One
Life to Live" have collapsed.
Five months ago, independent production firm
Prospect Park acquired the rights to the two long-running
ABC melodramas with the hopes of turning them into
widely watched Web series. But, the company announced
that it was abandoning its efforts after failing to make
financially viable deals with brand-name online distributors,
such as Hulu or Google, and after failing to get cost-cutting
concessions from Hollywood's powerful talent guilds.
'We always knew it would be an uphill battle to create
something historical, and unfortunately we couldn't
ultimately secure the backing and clear all the hurdles
in time," Prospect Park partners Rich Frank and Jeffrey
Kwatinetz said in a statement. "We believe we exhausted
all reasonable options apparent to us, but despite enor-
mous personal, as well as financial cost to ourselves, we
failed to find a solution."
Only four network soap operas will remain on the air
after this season 'TheYoung and the Restless,"
'The Bold and the Beautiful',"Days of Our Lives" and
"General Hospital'"Two decades ago, daytime dramas were
among the most profitable shows on TV, but over the years
they have struggled against increased competition from
social media, online games and talk shows, which typically
cost 30 percent less than the annual $50 million price tag for
a soap opera, industry executives said.

Gumbo Limbo is not just a tropical tree


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Named for a tropical tree that is salt toler-
ant, hurricane resistant and has medicinal
qualities, Gumbo Limbo Nature Center is
as intriguing as its name.
Like Mote Marine laboratory on this side of the
state, Gumbo Limbo does extensive research
on sea turtles. A current study by Dr. Jeanette
Wynken concerns the gender ratio of hatch-
lings, turtle swimming mechanics and even the
anatomy of one of the oldest creatures in the
world. Dr. Mike Salmon is studying the effects of
lighting on turtle behavior.
Located in a woody park-like setting, Gumbo
Limbo is about more than turtles however. It has
a butterfly nursery, herb garden, rain barrel, go-
pher tortoise exhibit and informative solar energy
display. Seven sea turtle sculptures are featured
in Gumbo Limbo's sea turtle garden. While the
east coast has plenty of loggerhead turtles such

as those that nest here on Florida's west coast, it
also has leatherback turtles, the biggest turtles of
all. They can weigh 2,000 pounds and be 6 to
8 feet across while loggerheads usually top out at
a still hefty 200 pounds.
Of interest to those who live along the coast
and need to keep lights out or shielded during
the summer sea turtle season is a safe-lighting
exhibit that demonstrates ways to protect turtles
from light disorientation while also providing safe
levels for humans. As sea turtle season won't
begin again until May 1, this is the time to make
an needed changes in lighting areas along the
coast, whether private homes, condos or busi-
nesses. March 12, Gumbo Limbo will host its
seventh annual Sea Turtle Day, one of its biggest
annual events.
Recent study projects have been concerned
with sharks and salt effects on sea grasses as
well as sea turtles. Nearly every day, students
from Florida Atlantic University are available to
talk about current studies at Gumbo Limbo.You
can learn a lot by chatting with them.Their usual
hours are mid-day or early afternoon everyday
but Monday but call to be sure if you want to
include this experience in your visit.
Now that the weather is cooler, strolling the
coastal hammock area boardwalk at the center
is a pleasure. There is even an observation tower
where one can enjoy a tree-top view.

"Poets Rule" at


Voices of Venice


BY CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Linda Neckel White leads Voices of Venice,
a group of area poets who meet every
Thursday at the Jacaranda Public Library.
She encourages performance poetry.
At "open mike" sessions, 15 or more poets
gather to read their work, share their ideas, and
explain why they choose to write or not write
about a suggested topic. To inspire creativity
White offers a weekly topic, but assures the group
that although "Poets Rule" (White's trademark)
there are no rules about how a poet may choose
to express his or her feelings.
In October, 17 entries, poems inspired by pho-
tographs, were posted anonymously throughout
their library meeting room. Three poems were
voted top prizes. Paula Timpson won for "Child,"
Celia Alvyn won for "Rebel" and Jim Geimer won
for "Ode to a Ballroom Dancer." Alvyn, often shy
about reading, asked a friend to read the winning
poem after the judging. "Rebel" described her
immigrant mother who, according to Alvyn, was a
woman forced to raise her children alone during
the Great Depression. At the November meeting,
Alvyn, inspired by the topic "What Makes You
Happy During the Day," bravely read two poems
"Transfusion," explaining how she felt when
she didn't die after receiving a transfusion and
"Marching," how it felt to march for Civil Rights in
1972.
Florida Writers Association President Susan
Haley, a member of "Voices of Venice" and the
Suncoast Writers Guild of Englewood, is proud
of the fact that the Internet has made it possible


for poets world-wide to submit their work for
consideration online as well as in person. At the
November meeting she chose to read an original
poem entitled: "When God Divides Seas, "a chill-
ing account about overcoming feelings of suicide."
Jan Hathy tutors elementary school children.
Her poem described a "Recipe for Happiness,"
how people are free to choose darkness of light
or heads or tails. Wyc Allen read: "Fallen Angel,"
a beautiful tribute to her daughter. The poem
"On One Leg" by Barbara Parker described how
people, like flamingos, balance and achieve
harmony and balance in life. Lynn Terry read from
her poem "The Battle" how a wife coped with the
fact that her husband was losing his battle with
cancer.
James 0. Kelly, known as the group's "master
of imagery" was asked to read from his soon to
be released second book "From the Embers."
He volunteers at Englewood Elementary School
teaching free verse poetry and has won a Special
Projects Award from Sarasota County. Popular
local poet Iris Blankman entertained the group
with a satirical work entitled: "Checking Out"
that described how flirting can often bring about
surprising results.
Linda Neckel White encourages writers to
"keep those pens moving" and invites area poets
to join "Voices of Venice" at 6 p.m. on Thursday
evenings at Jacaranda Public Library, 4143
Woodmere Park Blvd. No membership fee is
required.
Contests,open mike events and weekly writing
suggestions are posted on their website at
www.poetsrule.com.

Mike T Master of the Roy Orbison tribute


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Roy Orbison was a unique singer and
a pioneer in the rockabilly movement.
Through the years, he has been
often imitated, but never duplicated with
any success-until now.
Mike T is a local musician who brings Orbison
to life on the stage along with his bandmates,
Memories. "Originally, I'm from Massachusetts,"
said Mike T "I was in the used car business for 35
years. I used to always sing to my customers, and
they told me I should get into music."
Though he had always been a fan of music,
Mike T had never really thought about pursuing it
full-time. "I always idolized Roy Orbison," he said.


"The first time I heard him was in the early sixties,
but I didn't start singing until I was 48 years old.
I walked away from my business and decided to
give it (singing) a try down in Florida."
Now Mike T and the members of Memories,
Dave, Kim and Chris, perform a tribute show in
which the music of Roy Orbison is featured.
In addition, they perform as other acts like
Connie Francis, Dolly Parton, Little Anthony, Rod
Stewart, Elvis, Gene Pitney and a doo wop group.
"We grew up with this music," said Mike T "This
is our music." He feels a special kinship with
Orbison, noting the parallels in their lives. "This is
a special tribute for me, because Roy's life was
very tragic," he said.
Orbison had lost his wife Claudette in a 1966

Steve March Torm6 returns to Punta Gorda


PROVIDED BY THE CHARLOTTE SYMPHONY
ORCHESTRA
Steve March Torme's performance with the
Charlotte Symphony Orchestra before an
audience of 2,000 at last year's Edison
Pops at Sunset concert at Edison State College
resulted in two things.
One was a loud, long-lasting, cheering, stand-
ing acclamation for the son of the legendary
singer and songwriter, Mel Torm6.
The other was a flood of emails and telephone
calls urging the orchestra to bring him back to
Punta Gorda.
The Orchestra and Maestro T Francis Wada
wasted no time in heeding that advice. So Torm6


will headline this year's annual CSO holiday
concert, "Tiz the Season-Holiday Magic," at
7:30 p.m. on Sunday at the Charlotte Event and
Conference Center, 75 Taylor St., Punta Gorda.
He will perform a classic mix holiday songs,
as well as traditional tunes made famous by his
father, backed by the full CSO orchestra.
Maestro Wada is elated. Torme, he said,
"should be a household soloist with every single
symphony orchestra. His beautiful orchestrations
complement his powerful yet sensitive singing. It
is a conductor's delight to make music with Steve
March Torme, and a delight for my musicians and
the audience who were wildly excited. His show is
surely a grand slam home run."


The reference is quite apt, because Torm6 is
an athlete as well as a writer, singer and per-
former. He played the outfield and pitched for the
U.S. fast pitch softball team that defeated Canada
twice, in 1985 and 1989, winning the gold medal
at the Maccabiah Games in Tel Aviv, Israel.
CSO president Johnnie Holt states, "He's not
only a powerful performer, but an extraordinary
human being as well," she said. "The audience at
Tiz the Season will be absolutely charmed. It will
be a wonderful start to their holiday season."
Tickets are $45 for adults and $15 for students
(under 18) and may be purchased through the
CSO website at www.charlottesymphony.com or
by calling 941-205-9743.

and finds a new family and home with billionaire
Oliver Warbucks.
"Annie" is directed by Paula Pender,

by Chris Smith.

composed by Charles Strouse and lyrics by
Martin Charnin.

Saturday.

At right, The antics and hilarity of Rooster
(played by Terry Cobb), his girlfriend Lily

Chef Eichelberger serves

authentic food and fun


BY BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Doug Eichelberger grew up on Long Island,
New York, surrounded by amazing food.
One of his earliest memories is rolling
meatballs with his mother for the family's cater-
ing business. As a teenager, he cooked during
the day for a large private beach club, and then
changed uniforms to wait tables there at night.
Years later, he was working as the banquet
manager for a large hotel. Every year, he took
over the kitchen for their Mardi Gras celebration,
thoroughly enjoying cooking a huge variety of dishes
from many cultures. In the midst of the hectic night,
a table of native Louisianans asked to speak with
Eichelberger. Exhausted, he made his way to their
table, where they gave him what he considers to be
the best compliment he's ever received.
What part of Louisiana was he from? They
wanted to know because his was the best Cajun
and Creole food they'd ever had.
Yet Eichelberger hadn't even been to Louisi-
ana. He just knew food and how to prepare it.
Today, as chef and general manager of Por-
tofino Restaurant in Port Charlotte, Eichelberger
describes his cooking as a mix of Italian, Creole
and Cajun. He has been to New Orleans many
times since joining Portofino in 2002, back when
it was called Breakers Restaurant.
"They have a passion for food in New Orleans,"
said Eichelberger. "My philosophy is that you
need to have a passion for whatever you do,


because it shows.'
Each time he returns from New Orleans, Eichel-
berger brings back a new menu idea or twist, such
as adding Tasso ham a southern Louisiana favorite
- to an Italian dish to give it an extra zing of flavor.
"The roux for gumbo must be stirred non-stop
for 40 minutes," Eichelberger continued. "While
I'm standing there stirring it, I think about the long
history of gumbo. If I'm making perogies, which
must be made by hand, I remember my mother
and grandmother making their perogies. I may
use different fillings that I've developed, but the
history is still there."
Sometimes, while working in the kitchen, he
wears a New Orleans Saints hat. "If you're going
to wear a Saints hat, you'd better be sure the food
you're cooking is authentic," he laughed.Though
he takes his food preparation seriously, he likes to
have fun at the restaurant, too. Portofino's menu
includes such tidbits as Schenectady chicken, which
is essentially a Buffalo chicken sandwich, but as the
menu explains, "Schenectady, another great city in
upstate NewYork, doesn't get enough exposure"
In the final analysis, said Eichelberger, you're
only as good as the people you surround yourself
with. He gives a great deal of praise to his sous
chef, Ricardo Perez, and line cook Ken Caruthers.
"I tell my staff, if it isn't good enough to serve
to your mother on her birthday, don't serve it to
anyone," Eichelberger summed up his philosophy.
Taste what makes his cooking special at
Portofino, 23241 Bayshore Drive, Port Charlotte.

Mingling with the mutts at Fishermen


BY AIMEE COLEY
SUN CORRESPONDENT
M uttini Mingle has been a Punta Gorda
favorite for three years. On the first
Thursday of each month, dog owners
and their furry friends meet in the center court of
Fishermen's Village for fun, food, and friendship.
Salty Paws, a specialty gift boutique for dogs
and cats, hosts the monthly social event. The
shop began hosting Muttini Mingle in 2008 to
raise money for local animal rescues. Salty Paws
owner Cerissa Dillow said, "Our locals really sup-
port us. A lot of locals come every time, and I see
the same faces and same dogs. But we get new
people all the time,too."
Regular features of Muttini Mingle include
refreshments and live entertainment. Beer, wine,
and snacks are served to people, while pets
receive fresh doggie treats made onsite.
The upcoming Muttini Mingle on Thursday will
feature Michael Hirst, singer/songwriter, as the


night's entertainment. Dillow says that other en-
tertainers, including the Reconnections Band and
Paul Cottrell, are also big supporters of Muttini
Mingle and enjoy performing at the events.
Salty Paws hosts a free raffle at each Muttini
Mingle, and winners receive prizes from the shop.
Not every visitor wins a free prize, but every
visitor is given the opportunity to purchase items
from Salty Paws for a 10 percent discount.
This month's Muttini Mingle will also showcase
the holiday angel tree. The angel tree features
different dogs and cats from the Animal Welfare
League who are in need of items such as bed-
ding or treats. People are invited to choose a pet
to sponsor, and purchases made from Salty Paws

relaxed environment makes Muttini Mingle is

Jackson's American Grill Not your average bistro fare


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT


n late summer, a small American bistro
opened its doors in a storefront on Venice
Avenue. But what Jackson's American Grill
lacks in size, it makes up for in its both casual
and elegant menu.
'We made it through the summertime in
Venice, which is crucial," said Susan Macrae,
who owns the restaurant with her husband David.
"After our customers come, though, they keep
coming back."
Mccrae said what gets those repeat customers
coming through the door is not only the fresh,
flavorful food, but the variety on the menu. Lunch
and dinner choices range from the signature
bistro burgers to filet mignon, from cobb salad to
lobster ravioli.
For breakfast, the choices are just as many.
"People love our Eggs Benedict, and our break-
fast burritos are killer," said Macrae. 'We have all
different varieties of omelettes-lots of combina-
tions with really good flavors."
The culinary expertise at Jackson's comes
from an assimilation of family skills. "I've cooked
my whole life, and we've owned a few restaurants
in the past," said Macrae. "My daughter Sarah is a
pastry chef and just moved down from Chicago.
She has a fantastic flourless chocolate cake,
which is gluten-free, and a delicious passion
fruit cake"
Macrae also has high compliments for the
Jackson's cheesecake which she said is made


from an old family recipe. And no Florida dessert
menu would be complete without fresh key lime
pie. "One of our servers has a father who has a
key lime tree at his house," said Macrae. "We use
that fresh juice in our key lime pies."
Right now, Jackson's has about 15 employ-
ees on staff to gear up for season, but one in
particular is especially valuable-Macrae's sister,
Judy Uosikkinen. "I moved down here to be closer
to my family and help out with the restaurant,"
said Uosikkinen. "This is a nice, friendly family
restaurant."
The whole place seats about 80 people,
including the back patio's 30-35. Outside
seating in the rear of the restaurant is reminiscent
of a city courtyard, with brick flooring and
hanging plants. In the front, pocket doors slide
all the way into the wall to allow an unobscured
view of Venice Avenue pedestrian traffic. If you
like, you can even sit at a table on the sidewalk
out front.
Besides the success of the business, Macrae
seems most proud of the restaurant's community
involvement. "Every Tuesday,10 percent right off
the top goes to the Rotary Futures Program at
Venice High School," said Macrae. "The Second-
ary Educational Resource Center there deals
with kids and adults who want to go to college."
She added that with this restaurant and their
previous ones, they have always been involved
with the community and its charitable events.
Despite the vast assortment of foods to choose
from on the menu, Macrae said at the core of it

all, Jackson's is truly an American restaurant. And
as with any great American restaurant, burgers
have a starring role. After all, as Macrae said,
"Burgers are fun."
Jackson's American Grill is open for breakfast,
lunch and dinner beginning at 8 a.m.
Jackson's American Grill is located at
115 West Venice Ave., Venice.

'The Muppets' delightful family film


BY MICHAEL O'SULLIVAN
(C) 2011, THE WASHINGTON POST
"The Muppets" is both a delightful family film
about the Muppets and a winking, self-referen-
tial satire about how lame the Muppets are.
How does it manage that trick? By starting
from the premise that the Muppets are has-
beens. When the film opens, Kermit has disap-
peared from public view and is living in Howard
Hughes-like seclusion; Fozzie Bear is eking out
a living in a second-rate cover band called the
Moopets; and the ever-volatile Animal is in anger-
management therapy with Jack Black. Just about
the only one who has landed on her feet is Miss
Piggy, who is now editor of French Vogue (with
Emily Blunt reprising her "The Devil Wears Prada"
turn as Piggy's snooty office assistant).
It's a giggle, and it works a strange kind of
magic.You can laugh at them and with them at
the same time.
What sets the plot in motion is a visit to Los
Angeles by Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy
Adams), a pair of Smalltown sweethearts yes,


that's the name of the place they're from who
are accompanied on their trip by Gary's some-
what co-dependent brother Walter. In a twist,
Walter isn't played by a person, but by a puppet
(voiced by Peter Linz).
Walter is also something of a Muppets groupie.
When he arrives in Hollywood, he can't quite ac-
cept the fact that his heroes are washed up.
With the assistance of Gary and Mary, Walter
sets out to reunite the Muppets for one last show,
the proceeds from which will be used to save the
decrepit Muppet Studios building from being torn
down by an unscrupulous developer (Chris Coo-
per). Walter has long dreamed of working with the
Muppets. So far, so corny
What saves 'The Muppets" from itself is a
sharp eye for just how silly all of this is. Directed
by James Bobin (a regular writer and director on
"The Flight of the Conchords") and co-written
by Segel and Nicholas Stoller (an alumnus of
"Strangers With Candy" and "Undeclared"), the
film is mordant without being mean and sweet
without being saccharine.


If the "The Muppets" is sap, it's sophisticated,
self-aware sap. It's hard enough to appeal to
today's kids, let alone their parents. One of the
funniest scenes in the movie is a musical number
in which Gary addresses his own reflection,
envisioned as a Muppet caricature of himself.
(Gary's worried about not being man enough for
Mary, whom he's been dating, without commit-
ment, for 10 years.) At the same time, Walter is
shown singing to his reflection, envisioned as a
real, live person and played, in pitch-perfect
deadpan, by Jim Parsons of TV's "The Big Bang
Theory." (Parsons is a metaphor for Walter's need
to become his own person.)
The cinematic risk factor is high. For a minute,
"The Muppets" teeters between cheeky "SNI"'
skit and cheesy homage to old Hollywood.
But it pulls off the stunt brilliantly Like the char-
acters of Gary, a man who's afraid he's been
acting like a Muppet, and Walter, a Muppet
who aspires to be a man, "The Muppets" is a
movie with a highly entertaining identity crisis.
"The Muppets" (98 minutes) is rated PG.
