Arrests made in jewelry thefts


By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR
Two former employees of the
Bella Vita assisted-living facil-
ity on East Venice Avenue were
arrested Monday for stealing
jewelry from residents.
Thomas Patrick King, 43,
and Shawn Mangin, 44, were
taken into custody Monday
by Venice police for a string
of thefts that took place from
June to October.

Relief considered


for renter deposits


By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR
Renters who pay almost three
times as much as property
owners for their city water and
sewer deposit may get some
relief, if the mayor has his way.
The city has been receiving a
steady but small stream of com-
plaints over the disparity.
Property owners pay a $125
deposit; renters pay a $350
deposit. After a year, property
owners in good standing have
their accounts credited with
their deposit. Renters don't.
City officials say it's a neces-
sary evil. The city can place a
lien on the property of hom-
eowners who don't pay their bill,
but there's little recourse when
renters skip town and don't pay
theirs.
The higher deposit results in
fewer delinquent accounts, say
city officials.
At the Nov. 22 city council
meeting, Finance Director Jeff
Snyder requested a write-off of
$1,155.71 in unpaid utility bills
for the last fiscal year.
"This relatively small amount
of unrecoverable receipts is due
in large part to the guaranty
deposits ... our code sets for


utility customers," wrote Acting
City Manager Nancy Woodley
in a memo to Council Member
Emilio Carlesimo, who is look-
ing into the matter on behalf of
constituents.
Carlesimo said he's willing to
look at the city fees again, and
if adjustments are needed, then
so be it. But he's generally sup-
portive of the city's approach.
"My examination of utility
deposits data shows that what
the city requires is still the right
thing to do," Carlesimo said.
Woodley said the city came
up with the $350 deposit
amount because it equals three
months of the average custom-
er's bill. Meters typically get cut
off after two to three months' of
warnings about nonpayment.
There are currently more than
a few outstanding accounts.
According to Woodley, the city
has outstanding liens on cus-
tomers totaling $200,000.
"The tenant deposit schedule
is protecting the city from large
losses more than the property
owner's deposit schedule,"
Woodley said.
"The good news about
property owners is we have an
asset to lien and will eventually

showed off two bags of jew-
elry to staff and talked about
planning to sell them at Andy's
Gold on the bypass.
Mangin, a medical techni-
cian at Bella Vita since Decem-
ber, had been seen on occa-
sion going into the rooms of
residents he was not autho-
rized to be in. The two were
often seen together.
With the help of photo-
graphs of residents wearing
the jewelry, police tracked and
matched gold and diamond


bracelets and necklaces to
Andy's Gold on the bypass
and positively identified a half
dozen pieces as those belong-
ing to residents.
The jewelry store had the
thumbprints of King and
Mangin on file showing they
received cash for the jewelry
and stating they were the
rightful owners.
Among the recovered jewelry
from one resident was a large
Omega necklace, a 14-karat
curb bracelet, a 14-karat


double-weave bracelet and
an 18-karat bracelet with blue
sapphires and diamonds the
suspects sold for $1,450.
Another woman recovered a
gold rope necklace that earned
King $280 from the pawn shop.
A third victim recovered an
18-karat gold rope necklace
and gold heart pendant with
diamonds that King sold for
$400.

suicide


in cafe

By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR
A 71-year-old male customer
shot himself Tuesday after-
noon in the banquet hall of the
Saltwater Cafe Restaurant in
Nokomis. A restaurant bar-
tender called 911 upon hearing
a single shot.
The man, whose identity was
not released by the Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office as of
press time, was airlifted to
Bayfront Medical Center in
St. Petersburg late Tuesday
afternoon.
SCSO deputies were at the
scene investigating.
Restaurant owner Chef Rolf
Zahnd said other patrons were
in the banquet room when the
shot was fired. The man was
not a regular customer, he said.
The victim's condition is
unknown. Bayfront does not

County approves Cedar Ridge rezoning near River Road


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

Expressing faith in devel-
oper Pat Neal, Sarasota County
commissioners approved a
petition Tuesday to rezone
approximately 222 acres west
of River Road and south of
Center Road. The zoning for
the Cedar Ridge subdivision
will change from open use
estate (one unit per 5 acres)
to settlement area planned dis-
trict (up to two units per acre).
"There are still some hurdles
that need to be gone through
to get this petition all the way
down the road, but if you go
back through all of Mr. Neal's
developments, they all turned
out to be pretty spectacular
communities," said Commis-
sioner Joe Barbetta, who made
the motion to approve the
petition. "I think this one will


be the same."
Proposed for the develop-
ment are 431 units, including
multiple types of single-family
and multi-family homes. Fea-
tured will be a village center off
River Road, surrounded by four
neighborhood centers, which
will provide recreational, civic
and public amenities. The pro-
posed development also will
provide 73 acres of open space
and 9 acres of park land.
In August, the county Plan-
ning Commission recom-
mended denial of the petition
by a 7-1 vote after discussing
open space requirements, and
a report on the fiscal neutrality
of the project whether taxes
raised from the development
will cover government spend-
ing on infrastructure there.
Members also discussed the
project's impact on River Road
traffic and the city of North


Port's objection to the pro-
posed development.
"However, they sought to
also at one point bring
in this portion of the property
into the city," Commissioner
Christine Robinson said of
North Port officials. "I don't
think that would have been the
same opinion they would have
issued, had this been within
the city limits."
Cedar Ridge is a "hole-in-the-
doughnut" parcel that abuts
the Blackburn Creek develop-
ment on three sides. In Octo-
ber, commissioners approved
a rezone petition for an SAPD
zone district for Blackburn
Creek, allowing Neal to build
1,568 homes on 748 acres there.
Neal intends, eventually, to
incorporate Cedar Ridge into
Blackburn Creek, which is now
under construction.
The vote Tuesday was 4-1.


Commissioner Jon Thaxton
dissented, saying the peti-
tion has "some flaws that are
inconsistent with the adopted
ordinance" that created the
county's 2050 plan.
Blackburn Creek and Cedar
Ridge make up "the first 2050
property ever built in Sarasota
County," said Neal, president
of Neal Communities and
a partner in Copperstone
Acquisitions, the Cedar Ridge
property owner, in reference to
the county's plan to preserve
its natural, cultural and physi-
cal resources and make all
neighborhoods more livable.
Public comment included
two speakers who oppose the
project.
"It is a very, very bad plan
that makes a mockery of
Sarasota 2050," Dan Lobeck,
president of Control Growth
Now, wrote in a pre-meeting


email. "None of the defects in
the plan that formed the basis
for the Planning Commission
disapproval has been changed.
Indeed, nothing has been
changed."
Buildout of Cedar Ridge is
expected to be in 2029.
Also on Tuesday, commis-
sioners unanimously approved
a petition to rezone approxi-
mately 51 acres south of East
Venice Avenue and east of
Jacaranda Boulevard, from
open use estate to residential
multi-family (nine units per
acre). The applicant plans to
develop the property with 212
recreational-vehicle sites, 66
patio home sites and three
commercial outparcels, each
1.1 acres in size. The Plan-
ning Commission had recom-
mended denial.

Cattle-grazing


site to be visited


FROM SARASOTA COUNTY

Sarasota County Natu-
ral Resources will host a
cattle-grazing site visit
at 11 a.m., Thursday,
Dec. 8, at the Jordyn
parcel of the Deer
Prairie Creek in Ven-
ice. Deer Prairie Creek
is part of the county's
Environmentally Sensi-
tive Lands Protection
Program.
The event will cover
the purpose and ben-
efits of cattle grazing on
county-owned pastures
and why it is important
for land management
and wildfire prevention.
"Having cattle on
the Jordyn parcel is a
natural fit because this
land has a long his-
tory of ranching, and
having a cattleman on
the property reduces
our maintenance costs
considerably," said
Debbie Blanco, Sarasota
County environmental
specialist.
Sarasota County staff
partnered with the U.S.

develop a cattle-grazing
program for the 503-
acre parcel. In 2008,
the Sarasota County
Commission adopted a
resolution to establish
a Land Stewardship

that enabled the pilot
program.
The policy is based
on the county's support
of appropriate, envi-

Mildred S.
Buttendorf
Mildred "Mim" Schede
Buttendorf, 94, peace-
fully passed away at
Candle-
wood
Valley
Rehabilita-
tive Health
V Center
in New
r J Milford,
Conn., Sat-
urday, Dec. 3, 2011.
She was born Aug. 18,
1917, in Norwalk, Conn.,
the daughter of Mildred
Glover Schede and Louis
Charles Schede. Mildred
was predeceased by her
husband, Harold Butten-
dorf; two brothers, Ralph
and Hayward; and a sis-
ter, Irene Cunningham.
Mim grew up in
Darien, Conn., and
graduated from Darien
High School. After mov-
ing to Norwalk, Conn.,
she founded Jack and
Jill Nursery School and
for 40 years, as direc-
tor and teacher, helped
countless preschoolers
to be creative, kind and
respectful. Mim was
dedicated in working
with children and, at her
retirement party in 1984,
many former parents
and students returned
to share memories and
their appreciation.
Mim was a people per-
son. She was competi-
tive on the golf course
and at the bridge table,
but never took herself
too seriously. She was
a longtime member of
the Silvermine Golf Club
in Norwalk. Along with
Harold and her siblings,
she loved to fish, crab
and clam, always cooking


up a feast for family. She
was a fabulous cook, just
like her father, and loved
to entertain.
Second only to love of
family was her love of
dogs. In her retirement
she lived in Venice Fla.,
where she worked as a
volunteer for the Sun-
coast Humane Society.
All her life she was pas-
sionate about supporting
the rescue and adoption
of shelter pets.
In 2002, Mim realized
a dream to tour Switzer-
land and Germany with
a trip down the Rhine.
She was accompanied
by her daughter and
son-in-law and her three
granddaughters. A trip to
always remember!
Nana's greatest joy was
her family, including
daughter Cherie Wilhelm
and son-in-law Tom, with
whom she lived for the
last six years in New Mil-
ford. Her loving grand-
children are Kristin, Lisa
(and her husband, Sean
Fitzgerald), Kate (and her
husband, Adam Conley)
and Scott Wilhelm. She
lived to enjoy four great-
grandchildren, Jack, Alex-
andra, Cole and Lyndee.
She attended countless
recitals, ball games and
birthday parties, always
thrilled to take part in
all family holidays and
celebrations. She was
the best Mom and Nana
ever, and taught all her
family to love laughter,
fairness and compassion
for others.
Services: A graveside
service for immediate
family will take place at
Lakeview Cemetery, New
Canaan, Conn.

her honor and memory,

WESCO featured on national TV show


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

The nationally televised
program "How It's Made" this
week features an original prod-
uct made by Venice manufac-
turerWESCO Fountains Inc.,
3440 Technology Drive, North
Venice.
Aired on the Science Chan-
nel at 9 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 8,
in more than 180 countries
around the world, the series
features WESCO's floating
fountain.
In 1981 Jeff Horvath founded
the company with this prod-
uct, which is still a top-seller
30 years later. Locally, a
20-horsepower floating foun-
tain is featured in the water
surrounding Caf6 Italia on
along North Tamiami Trail just
north of Venice.
The concept is used in
considerably larger applica-
tions, including the Gaylord
Show Fountains at National




Bistro


Harbor in Washington, D.C., a
$4 million project with eight
fountains. The most recent
installation is in the North
Carolina Veterans Park, where
10 fountains serve as the cen-
terpiece in a beautiful memo-
rial garden.
"We were contacted a year
ago by the Science Channel
program research team, who
seek out very unique services
and businesses," said Janis
Coquillard, WESCO company
president.
In March the film crew came
to the plant for a day and shot
the production and operation
of the floating fountain step by
step.
WESCO Fountains is a
family-owned and -operated
business. Horvath, Coquillard's
father, is chair and owner;
her husband, Anthony, is vice
president of production. They
25 employees and in the past
three years have expanded
their facility from 10,000 to


25,000 square feet.
Floating fountains range
from a small one horsepower
fountain for $4,500 to a
20-horsepower fountain for
lakes for $45,000.
Three years ago WESCO
entered the pet industry by
launching the K9 Guzzler.
Research had indicated pet
owners wanted an environ-
mentally friendly fountain
without stagnant water, avoid-
ing potential contamination
by mosquito larvae and other
animals.
Owners control when their
dog drinks with the K9 Guzzler,
ensuring it always has clean,
fresh water. With the tap on,
water flows into a curved bowl,
flushing out the contents to
slowly drain into the surround-
ing earth.
"This is a wonderful product
we are selling several weekly to
retailers and municipalities for
installations in city parks," said
Coquillard.

floor.


The publicity presented by
this week's Science Channel
program about WESCO's float-
ing fountain product line is
likely to lead to further interest


in the company, which already
has more than 3,000 installa-
tions worldwide.

Vacationing on Florida's
east coast three years
ago, they met a Czecho-

in Venice for 11 years,
and he encouraged them
to visit the city.
"It is a beautiful city,"
she said, "and we always
wanted to own a res-
taurant to do things our
way as we had seen a
lot of mistakes made by
others."

County employees get ethics lesson


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

Years ago when their res-
taurant was opening in South
County, managers of Durango
Oak Fire Steakhouse invited
Sarasota County employees and
their families along with oth-
ers from the general public to
a run-through, so servers, cooks
and hostesses could practice
their jobs before the grand open-
ing. The invitation came after
the county employees guided
restaurant officials through the


permitting process.
County employees went and
had a good time, one said. But
was it the right decision to go?
Unlike private-sector employ-
ees, who have few legal restric-
tions on giving each other gifts
and favors, public employees
are governed by state laws and,
in Sarasota County government,
an ethics policy. Ethical dilem-
mas like the one faced by the
Durango patrons are not new
to government. They didn't start
when county employee Rodney
Jones was arrested in March for


his role in a multijurisdictional
criminal corruption probe.
Indeed, some employees will
continue to receive opportunities
to benefit personally from their
county positions.
That's where Steve Uebelacker
comes in.
Uebelacker, the county's first
ethics and compliance offi-
cer, has taught more than 200
employees about state laws and
county policies regarding ethics
in recent weeks. His overarch-
ing message at a workshop last
week, in the wake of multiple


probes of the county's pur-
chasing system, low employee
morale and diminished trust in
local government by residents, is
to relax.
Not to relax their standards of
ethical behavior, but to learn how
to respond when they are faced
with a situation like whether to
accept the restaurant invitation.
Uebelacker, who stopped short
of admonishing the employees,
believes most will make the
right decisions. When in doubt,
he said, 'Ask your manager. Ask
Human Resources. Ask me. My


job is to help you guys relax."
Uebelacker told the employ-
ees on hand at the Robert L.
Anderson Administration Center
in South Venice that he was not
there to preach to them about
ethics. He hopes they don't think
of him as a baby sitter.
Other efforts by county offi-
cials are also designed to help
employees feel better about their
jobs.
"Successful organizations have
clear standards and operational
procedures," Uebelacker said.
"You know what your job is."

SUN NEWSPAPERS


OUR VIEW



Day of infamy birthed Greatest Generation


Seventy years ago today, every-
thing changed when, as Presi-
dent Franklin Roosevelt put it,
"the United States of America was
suddenly and deliberately attacked
by naval and air forces of the Empire
of Japan." It was, Roosevelt famously
said, "a date which will live in
infamy."
He was right about that, of course.
The date is carved deeply into our
national consciousness, and we
expect it will remain there long after
the last Americans breathing on
that day have passed from the world
they saved from an unimaginable
tyranny.
Dec. 7, 1941, was the hinge point
of the century that would later
become known as the "American
Century." To no small extent it took
on that title because of the events


of Dec. 7. But what happened on
the day itself was simply the trigger:
What mattered was the response.
The attack on Pearl Harbor on a
quiet Sunday morning shocked
the American public into a uni-
fied resolve that came to define the
nation and the century.
In a radio address two days later,
Roosevelt sketched the immediate
future:
"On the road ahead there lies hard
work gruelling work day and
night, every hour and every minute.
I was about to add that ahead there
lies sacrifice for all of us. But it is not
correct to use that word. The United
States does not consider it a sacri-
fice to do all one can, to give one's
best to our nation when the nation
is fighting for its existence and its
future ... Rather it is a privilege."


But it was, indeed, a sacrifice. The
nation mobilized. Men and women
rallied and sacrificed on the home
front. Men and women went to war.
Some 16 million joined the armed
forces. More than 400,000 were killed
and nearly 700,000 wounded before
the Japanese signed terms of surren-
der on Sept. 2, 1945.
Roosevelt closed his "Fireside
Chat" of Dec. 9, 1941, with these
words:
"The true goal we seek is far above
and beyond the ugly field of battle.
When we resort to force, as now we
must, we are determined that this
force shall be directed toward the
ultimate good as well as against the
immediate evil. We Americans are
not destroyers; we are builders.
And then:
"We are going to win the war, and


we are going to win the peace that
follows.
"Again in the dark hours of this
day and through the dark days that
may be yet to come we will know
that the vast majority of the members
of the human race are on our side.
Many of them are fighting with us.
All of them are praying for us. For, in
representing our cause, we represent
theirs as well our hope and their
hope for liberty under God."
Today, we reflect on the incalcula-
ble debt we owe to the Americans of
that era the aptly named "Greatest
Generation," whose privilege it was
to sacrifice and create a world where
liberty could flourish and grow. One
hundred years from this date, we
expect, the world will still wonder
at their remarkable ability to fulfill
those hopes.


Envision possibilities


A handful of people and I
had the opportunity to tour
the old Circus Arena a couple
of weeks ago.
It is not a huge secret that
the building needs work, and
lots of it. The building has
been abandoned for awhile
and it shows.
I decided to listen about
the days of yore and all the
wonderful things that hous-
ing a circus in the winter
included. It was described to
the point you almost felt you
were there. As I was listening,
it struck me that this building
could never become the past,
but what could the future
bring? Or should it just be
demolished?
As the discussion went
on in full force I decided to
close my eyes, clear my head
and picture the future of this
enchanted building. I saw
children, parents and grand-
parents gliding around an
ice rink during the Christmas
season. I saw huge screens
mounted so every seat in
the house could watch the
movies that bring Christmas
alive. I saw teenagers working
concession stands filled with
hot dogs, soda, cotton candy
and popcorn. I saw a restau-
rant filled with those who did
not dare skate, but loved to
watch.
The next scene that flashed
into my mind was the Venice
High School basketball teams
hosting a holiday tourna-
ment, the home crowd and
people from the region filling
the seats and cheering on
their teams. People enjoying
their children facing their
fears and opponents on a
wooden floor inches above
the ice
Next, I pictured actors
from Venice Theatre scur-
rying backstage, preparing
for a sold-out show, 4,500
people holding their breath
for the next act and conces-
sions waiting for intermis-
sion. Folks standing while


clapping, their hearts full of
amazement and pride.
I saw children sitting in the
stands, watching as those
who have the passion for
the circus rehearse and train
for those moments in one of
the rings for a season. The
day-care that operates there
proudly takes the children
once a day to see the not-
quite-perfected acts, never
knowing there was more
rehearsal to do.
I pictured a banquet area
where local, state and other
organizations could hold
conferences, meetings or fun
getaways for their employees.
The uses for this could be
incredible.
I see pictures, statues
and rooms dedicated to
the glory days of the circus,
with people milling about,
rummaging through his-
tory at a leisurely pace just
before a concert performed
by an artist or band on its
way to fame, but still paying
the dues that go with that
industry.
I was nudged by a fellow
attendee at this point, and it
occurred to me that we don't
need to have a circus here,
but we need a civic center
for Venice. This civic cen-
ter can have a circus theme
reminding us of glory days
gone by, and also a strong
showing of uses for today and
for the future. If it is done
correctly, this place can turn
into something we all can be
proud of, now and into the
future.
So that is what came to my
mind in those 10 minutes. I
am sure there are hundreds
of ideas out there that will
be beneficial to the com-
munity. I absolutely think we
owe it to ourselves to at least
give this thing some thought
before we just destroy
another part of history.
I cleared my head and
looked forward; you try it and
tell us what you see.
I really enjoyed the boat
parade and wanted to say
a special thank-you to
everyone involved. The
boats were magnificent,
the weather beautiful and
every person in the crowd
was thrilled. John Osmulski,
you performed a Christmas
miracle.

Limits. It was hoped that the
Circus Arena would be restored -
and attract tourists who would
be interested in circus history
or circuses. I fear that has lim-
ited appeal, and the entrance
fee would be very expensive. If
there were additional functions,
such as concerts, would 4,500

It's doable. My fellowVene-
tians, after reading some of

wonder people are discouraged
about the restoration of the Cir-
cus Arena. After the city let it go,
due to the financial gain if some
commercial outfit came in (and
what kind of commercial outfit
would it be?) and developed
it, why should it try to help us
restore it? I'm a volunteer trying
to get it restored, and from talk-
ing to many people in my trav-
els around Venice, there are a lot
of people just as enthused about
wanting it restored as the rest
of us. If everybody gave a little
something to help us get the
funds needed, they would then
try to get some help from Gulf
Coast Community Foundation,
and how about the Historical
Society? The arena is in per-
fect condition and could offer
tours and shows. If not for the
beach, Venice Theatre and a few
symphonies, what do we have?

Break-up ends in battery arrest


A night of drinking and
arguing ended a three-
month relationship.
According
to the Sara-
sota County
Sheriff's
I Office
affidavit:
Adrian
Celestino,
CELESTINO 22, 3200
block Rustic
Road, Nokomis, and his
live-in boyfriend were
out drinking at several
bars on Siesta Key. The
victim said Celestino was
acting hostile toward him
all evening and they had
several arguments.
When the victim tried
to get Celestino into
his vehicle to go home,
Celestino became upset
and struck him in the
face with a closed fist.
Eventually he was able
to get Celestino into the
vehicle and head home.
At their residence, he told
Celestino he needed to
move out, and went to
sleep. Celestino was pack-
ing when the victim got
up and questioned him,
resulting in another argu-
ment, and another punch

to the face. Celestino was
arrested for domestic bat-
tery. His bond was $500.

Tantrum
ends in arrest
A woman who police
were told might have
postpartum depression
was arrested
after a
tantrum.
a t According
a. to aVen-
S ice Police
Department
report:
HUTTON Evelina
Hutton, 35,
600 block Harbor Drive,
Venice, started an argu-
ment with her husband,
64, who was doing math
homework with one of
their children. When she
started screaming and
throwing things, he took
the kids into the bedroom.
Eventually, he wrestled
his wife to the ground and
called 911. The husband,


who suffered a scraped lip,
said the same thing hap-
pened about six weeks ago
but he did not report it.
Hutton was arrested
for domestic battery. She
received no bond.

Honey-do
angers husband
A woman who talked
to her husband about
cleaning up their lawn
was slapped and pushed
to the floor.
According to a VPD
report:
Frederick Marion Seno,
74, 400 block Pensacola
Road, Venice, apparently
grew angry at the request,
which escalated into a
heated argument. The
only phone in the house,
a cellphone, was thrown
and not functioning.
Seno reportedly pushed
his wife to the floor. On
the way down she hit her
head on a fireplace orna-
ment and lay motionless.


Seno, who said he did
it in self-defense, walked
to the Venice Public
Library to call 911 for
assistance. He returned
home, where emergency
assistance was in prog-
ress. She refused treat-
ment. He was arrested
for domestic battery. He
received no bond.

Venice rips Charlotte


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

Venice's Laura Hackett
couldn't be stopped as the senior
center poured in 27 points as
the Lady Indians opened Class
7A-District 11 with a 58-32 win
over Charlotte on Tuesday night
at Venice High.
"We are 1-0 (in the district),"
said Venice coach John Flynn. "It
doesn't matter what happened
before. I liked the effort. The all-
around effort was good."
Hackett scored 17 of her 27
points in the first half as Venice
jumped out to a 37-18 halftime
cushion.
"They don't match up with
her," said Venice coach John
Flynn.
"She is a good player," said
Charlotte coach Mike Robishaw.
"She is physical. She doesn't
make her first shots but she is
definitely going to go after her
second and third opportunities.
We didn't do what we needed to
do to keep her off the boards."
Hackett led the Lady Indians
(3-4 overall, 1-0 district) with 14
rebounds.
In the first quarter, Charlotte
led, 5-4 on a layup by Briana
Francis with 4:53 left.
Venice then went on a 11-0
scoring run as Hackett had
seven points and sophomore
Maggie Flynn had four points.
It was the Hackett and Flynn
show in the first quarter as the
two combined for 19 of Venice's
21 points.
Venice held a 21-10 lead after
one quarter.
In the second quarter, the
Lady Indians outscored the Lady

Tarpons, 16-8, to take a 37-18
halftime lead.


Hackett and Flynn combined
for 29 of the team's first-half


points.
"We knew they were going
to be a very physical team and
Hackett is a physical player," said
Robishaw. "We didn't come ready
to play tonight. Physically we
were here but things we needed
to do to execute what we wanted
to do, we weren't ready to go to-
night. That is not how we want to
come in for a district game."
Flynn scored eight of her 12
points in the first quarter.
"She let the timing and the
game come to her instead of
forcing it," said Flynn about his
daughter. "She looked for shots.
A couple of pull-up shots and
layups."
Venice cut down on its turn-
overs as the Lady Indians only
had 10 total in the first half
while Charlotte committed 16
turnovers.
"We were very careless with
the ball," said Robishaw. "A little
better in the second half. We
didn't do a good job of taking
care of the ball. We've been
doing a good job our first five
games of taking care of the ball."
Venice also dominated on the
boards with Brooke Shipps and
Hackett.
The Lady Indians outrebound-
ed the Lady Tarpons, 42-25, as
Hackett and Shipps combined
for 27 rebounds including 13 for
Shipps.

McGuire's

Venice worked on its
passing and the Indians
took advantage of first-
year program Sarasota
Military Academy to
record an 8-0 victory on
Monday at Powell-Davis
Stadium.
"It's what I wanted
them to work on tonight,"
said Venice coach Seth
Jones about his team's
passing. "I told them to
move the ball around and
create those opportuni-
ties instead of playing
this run-and-gun type
of game by just trying to
pass the ball up to Matt
(McGuire) and let him
score. That is probably
what I'm more happy
about seeing tonight,
is the ball movement,
than to look at that final
score."
The Eagles, a first-year
program, are compet-
ing in the Florida High
School Athletic Associa-
tion FHSAA as an inde-
pendent this season. The
SMA student popula-
tion is 843; the academy
opened in 2003.

goals.
The Indians had many
chances to score as they
continued to bombard
Vasquez with shots.
In the 15th minute,
Matt McGuire scored the
first of his three goals off
a rebound. Tyler Incrocci
ripped a shot that
bounced off the keeper's
hands. On the rebound,
another Venice player
took a shot. On the sec-
ond rebound, McGuire
collected the loose ball
for the goal.
Just two minutes later,
McGuire added his
second goal off an assist
from Lambrecht. His


left-footed shot landed
just inside the far corner.
In the 36th minute,
Venice went ahead 4-0 as
senior Andrew Chlebina
scored his first goal of the
season on an assist from
Kyle Incrocci. Chlebina's
shot glanced off the near
post and into the back of
the net.
Venice dominated the
Eagles (2-4-1) with a 23-0
edge in shots in the first
half.
Vasquez recorded 11


saves for SMA.
"I know this is an up-
and-coming team and
this is their first year,"
said Jones. "At the same
time, we have seen them
twice and they have some
pretty good skills. Despite
the score tonight, their
goalkeeper really made
some spectacular saves,
especially in the first
half."
The match also gave
Jones a chance to play his
entire lineup.


Venice's Kyle Incrocci heads
the ball as Sarasota Military
Academy's Tu Tran watches

"This is nice for guys
that don't get a lot of
time," said Jones. "The
kind of district we have,
knowing we have close
games, there are guys
who don't get a whole lot
of playing time. Tonight
was a night. A lot of these
guys played full or three-
quarters of the game. It's
also an opportunity for
them to show themselves
off a little bit: 'I deserve
more playing time or look
what I can do when I am
out on the field.'"

Venice Memorial Gar-
dens is seeking volun-
teers to make the season
bright.
Saturday evening, the
cemetery will host its
19th annual candlelight
memorial service at the
cemetery. Prior to the
7 p.m. service, visitors are
invited to drive through
the grounds, which will
be lit by the glow of 6,000
candles in luminarias.
"The best part for me
is at dusk," cemetery em-
ployee June Parker said.
"They get brighter and
brighter as dusk settles."
Setting out the lumi-
narias is a major task that
is only possible because
of the volunteers who
arrive each year about
8:30 a.m. The cemetery
provides a continental
breakfast and all the sup-
plies. It takes all morn-
ing to set the luminarias
in place. Volunteers are
provided with lunch and
many return, along with
other volunteers, to carry
out the next step light-
ing 6,000 candles.
"We really need two
shifts of volunteers,"
John Williams, president
of Farley Funeral Home,
said. "The second group
comes at 2 p.m."
The second group uses
charcoal lighters for the
task, which takes about
three hours to complete.
Parker said. The candles
are made to burn for 10
hours. Many come back
Sunday morning to pick
up the luminarias. To
volunteer for any of these
times, call Parker or Mike
Mitchell at 941-493-4246.
Parker said that many
of the volunteers bring
their older children along
for the experience.
"A lot of the people
who help have someone
out here," she said.
Others have no one
there but come to honor

friends who have died
or relatives who may be
elsewhere.
At 6 p.m. the drive-
through begins and
encircles the cemetery.
Those attending the
7 p.m. service are asked
to park at Venice Middle
School, which is just west
of the cemetery. They will
be driven to and from the
cemetery in golf carts,
Parker said. Everyone
is invited to attend the
service.
"The service is very
therapeutic for people,"
Williams said. "Anyone
who has encountered
a loss is invited. The
message is applicable to
anyone."
The service will include


an invocation, reading of
the Christmas Story from
scripture and a message
by Pastor Tom Derrough
of Grace United Meth-
odist Church. It also
will include the reading
of names of those who
have died in the past
year, songs by Josh Price
of the Lift Church and
words about grief during
the holidays delivered
by Patrick McCarthy, the
grief specialist for Tide-
Well Hospice.
Williams said that
someone who attended
a past service found it
especially comforting
because his "parents did
not want anything when
they died."
"Last night was my


something," the man
said to Williams after the
service.
Parker said the ceme-
tery will set up 450 chairs
for those attending the
service. The service
usually lasts about 45
minutes, she said. It will
take place near the two
smaller mausoleums at
the cemetery.
"We usually have 400
to 450 at the service,"
Williams said. "That does
not include those who
drive through."
Songs that will be sung
by Price include: "Joy to
the World," "God Rest Ye
Merry, Gentlemen," "0
Come All Ye Faithful,"
"Angels We Have Heard
on High" and "Hark! the


COPING WITH GRIEF
While the memorial service on Dec. 7 is a celebration of life honoring
those who have died, the holidays can especially stressful for those left
behind. Grief counselors can help at any time when there is a loss.
TideWell Hospice offers grief support at its Venice location, 220 Wexford
Blvd., phone 941-441-2000. Louis LaGrand, Ph.D., director of Loss Educa-
tion Associates, offers grief support. Call 941-496-4391. Call your physi-
cian or your local worship center for information about grief support and
recommendations, which may include a psychotherapist, facilitator or
bereavement group. Such groups include Compassionate Friends, Suicide
Survivors, Memories to Hold (perinatal or neonatal death) and Loss of a
Pet (ask your veterinarian).


Herald Angels Sing." The
service concludes with
everyone singing "Silent
Night" and a benediction
by Derrough.
There is no cost to
attend the service or to
enjoy the refreshments
afterward, Williams said.
Off-duty sheriff's depu-


ties will assist with the
traffic.
There will be a good-
will offering taken dur-
ing the service for the
Salvation Army of Venice,
which provides Christ-
mas for those in need.

Venice Memorial Gardens hosted its 18th annual
Candlelight Celebration last year in memory of the
290 people interred or inurned there in 2010. Their
names were read out loud by representatives of
Farley Funeral Homes and Venice Memorial Gardens
during the service. Eighty volunteers placed and lit
6,500 candles that lined the structures and streets
within the cemetery.

Signs of the times need
refurbishment in Heri-
tage Park.
Heritage Park is that
lovely, landscaped medi-
an on West Venice Avenue
that extends from City
Hall to the Gulf of Mexico.
Along the meandering
path through the park
are six areas designed to
commemorate the city's
history and to honor the
people and events that
were key to that history.
Because the signs in
three of these areas are
in serious disrepair, the
city's director of his-
torical resources, James
Hagler, applied for help
from Gulf Coast Com-
munity Foundation's Gulf
Coast Gives website.
"Venice is an amazing
place to live, work and
play," Hagler said in chal-
lenging residents and
employees to "give back."
On Tuesday, the cam-
paign to raise $670 to
replace the sign honoring
early pioneers was within
$265 of its goal. Wording
on the sign speaks to the

Once that campaign

That campaign will be

"Our goal is to bring
back their beauty by

Bell ringers are still
needed for this year's
Salvation Army Kettle
Drive.
Bell ringing could be
the most rewarding two
hours you spend this
holiday season. Ringers
work two-hour shifts,
usually with a friend,
although with all the
traffic at places such as
Publix, ringers usually
have plenty of company.
Ringers are needed at
the Publix and Walmart
stores in Venice and
North Port. Kettles are
usually attended from
8 a.m. to 8 p.m. While
two-hour shifts are the
norm, ringers may stay
longer or may come
back as often as they
can.

Money collected in
this area stays in the
community to help care
for people who need
some help. Help can
include presents for the
children at Christmas or
assistance with paying
a utility bill. A bus pass
can be a major gift to
someone who needs to
get to work and has no
transportation.
The idea of the kettle
drive is more than 100
years old, dating to 1891
in San Francisco. Salva-
tion Army Capt. Joseph
McFee was looking for
a way to raise money to
provide a free Christ-
mas dinner for those
in need. There were
about 1,000 in that city
at the time, according
to information from the
Salvation Army. As he
thought about this


dilemma, he remem-
bered his sailor days in
Liverpool, England, es-
pecially at Stage Land-
ing, where the ships
came in. There was a
large iron kettle referred
to as "Simpson's Pot"
on the landing. Money
thrown into the pot was
used for the poor.
He decided to do the
same at the Oakland
Ferry Landing at the
foot of Market Street
in San Francisco. He
added a sign that said
"Keep the Pot Boiling."
San Francisco's neediest
people had Christmas
dinner that first year
and within six years the
idea had spread back
east to Boston; 150,000
dinners were served
across the country that
year.

WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
A67 AQ60 KJ1064AQJ106

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

A You are too strong for a simple
raise to two hearts, but you don't
want to raise partner's suit with only
three-card support. Show your
strength with a reverse bid of two
diamonds and then raise hearts at
your next turn to complete the
description of your shape and
strength.

Q 2 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
AK7 K9 0AQ97636A105

The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
10 Pass 2NT Pass
9
What do you bid now?

A You want to describe both the
strength and shape of your hand.
Start by showing your diamond
length by rebidding three diamonds
and then, should partner rebid three
no trump, show your slam interest by
raising to four no trump. No, that
isn't ace-asking!

Q 3 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

A KQ 106c A1092 AJ872*Void


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
146 Pass 10
16 Pass ?
What do you bid now?


WEST
Pass


A Suddenly your hand has become
enormous. Start by bidding two
hearts (fourth-suit forcing) the
support spades and see what
develops. If fourth-suit is not in your
methods jump in hearts before
supporting spades.)


Q 4 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:
AK 1 J85 0KJ956*AJ 1062


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
16 Pass 26
21) Pass ?
What do you bid now?


WEST
Pass


A It looks as if you are heading to
three no trump, but what if partner is
5-5 in the majors? Bid two no trump,
to give him room. Your two-over-one
response created a game-forcing
auction, so wait to see what partner
does.

Q 5 As South vulnerable, you hold:
6 964 2AQ 843 0 KQJ6Q8


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
14 Pass 2
4V) Pass ?
What do you bid now?


WEST
Pass


A You are in the slam zone, but we
suggest you use caution. Your
holding in partner's suit is not very
helpful and, while you are borderline
for slam purposes, that flaw is
enough to make us cautious. Pass.

Q 6 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
AK9YAQ9852084KJ63


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
14 Pass 2V
4() Pass ?
What do you bid now?


WEST
Pass


A You have the same point count as
in the previous problem, but all your
points are working and the king in
partner's suit is pulling more than its
weight in the point count. Bid four no
trump. How high you go depends on
partner's response.

This nice lady, one of the

Is it just a cold,


or more serious?


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
You'll think I'm an over-
protective, helicopter
mom, but I am never
at ease when one of my
three young children
has what I think is just
a cold. I have no idea
if they need to see a
doctor for something
that could be more
important. Can you
give me some pointers
on how to tell a simple
cold from something
that requires medical
treatment? J.K.
ANSWER: Your ques-
tion isn't silly. Most peo-
ple wonder if their cold
symptoms are indicative
of something more seri-
ous, but they don't want
to run to a doctor unless
they are.
Adults can have as
many as four colds a
year. Children have even
more, and older people
have fewer. Older people
are more immune to
cold viruses because
they have been exposed
to many of them during
their lives. They have de-
veloped antibodies and
are somewhat immune.
Young children, who
have had less experience
with cold viruses, are not
as immune.
Rhinoviruses consti-
tute a large viral family
that is the most frequent
cause of colds. There are
more than 100 different
strains of this viral fam-
ily. That's one reason it
has been so frustrating
trying to develop a cold
vaccine.
Typical symptoms
of a common cold are
dripping nose, sneez-
ing, a mild cough, nasal
congestion and a raw,
slightly sore throat. One
of the most important
signs separating a cold
from a more dangerous
respiratory infection is
the lack of a fever. A cold
lasts from four to nine
days. People usually stay
somewhat active with a
cold, and that includes
kids.
Influenza, on the other
hand, always produces a
fever. Its cough is hack-
ing and quite constant.
Muscle pain and head-
ache are present. People
with the flu, including
children, are not active.
They want to lie down
and forget about the rest
of the world.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I am an 86-year-old
woman with a swal-
lowing problem. Food
catches in my throat and
makes me cough. An

hour to two later, it dis-
lodges and finds its way
back into my mouth. It
smells bad.
My doctor has looked
into my mouth and
throat, and says he sees
nothing wrong. He ad-
vises me to eat only soft
foods and to drink lots
of water when I eat. I'm
convinced something
is wrong. What do you
think is going on? -
B.W.
ANSWER: Your com-
plaint has the trappings
of Zenker's diverticu-
lum. It's a pouch that
has formed in the back
of the throat. People
with a Zenker's diver-
ticulum have great
difficulty swallowing
due to the kinds of
symptoms you describe.
Liquids go down with
ease; solids don't. The
Zenker's diverticulum
entraps them and ejects
them later most of
the time.
A diagnosis is made by
having a person like you
swallow some barium
and then have an X-ray
taken. The barium finds
its way into the diver-
ticulum. Doctors with
special scopes also can
uncover one.
You need to see an ear,
nose and throat doctor.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I felt a lump in my
right breast. My doctor
examined it and sent
me to a surgeon, who
ordered a mammogram.
After the mammogram,
he did a breast biopsy.
The report said I had a
fibroadenoma. The sur-
geon said it isn't cancer,
but wants me to have a
repeat mammogram in
three months. Why? -
E.D.
ANSWER: Fibroad-
enomas are not cancer.
The lump they produce
feels rubbery and can be
moved around with ease.
Cancers are usually hard
and fixed in place.
The follow-up mam-
mogram was ordered
to be absolutely certain
that the lump is not
changing, something
that should give you
even greater assurance
than you now have.

Turkey stock


Dear Heloise: When
planning holiday meals
where the main course is
a turkey, I always make
sure to buy celery, carrots,
onions and cheesecloth for
the day after the meal so I
can make turkey stock.
I strip the meat off the
bones and place them in
a large container with the
juice from the turkey pan
and a little meat. I store this
in the refrigerator until the
following morning, then fill
a large stockpot with water
and add the turkey, cut-up
celery, carrots and onions,
poultry seasoning and
some salt and pepper.
I place the lid on the pot
and bring the ingredients to
a boil. I let it simmer, stirring
occasionally, for the next six
to eight hours. The water
will turn to a thick, golden-
colored liquid when done.
I strain out the bones,
meat and vegetables with
a slotted spoon until the
biggest pieces are gone
from the liquid. Then I line
a strainer with cheesecloth
and pour out the remaining
liquid until there is nothing
but the liquid stock remain-
ing. I season to taste and
store in glass canning jars
in the freezer or refrigerator
to use as needed. I can add
my favorite noodles and cut-
up vegetables for a quick,
hearty soup on a cold day.
- Lynn D., via email

Pan storage

drawers in my kitchen, and
one contains pots and pans.
When my nonstick frying


Hints from Heloise

pans are nested in the
drawer, they get "scuffed"
and lose the nonstick sur-
face. I also have a collection
of seasonal and holiday
hot pads. I layer them
between the frying pans,
and problem solved. They
keep the pans from getting
scratched, and the hot pads
also are handy when I need
an extra one. Carolyn L.,

Waffle hint
Dear Heloise: I have
enjoyed reading your
mother's column in our
(Youngstown, Ohio)
Vindicator, and now your
column. I appreciate all
the wonderful hints. Here
is one:
My husband and I enjoy
the Heloise Club Waffles
quite often. The recipe
makes more than we can
eat at one time, so freezing
those left over works well.
To reheat them from the
freezer, I first put them in
the microwave for a minute
and a half. Then I pop
them in the toaster, and
they come out hot, fresh
and crisp, as if they were
just made! -Jeanette C.,

Husband is aging too well for

worrying wife to handle


DEAR ABBY: When I
married my husband,
"Mason," 30 years ago, I
was the only girl he could
get. He was a great catch by
my standards and still is.
But back then nobody else
wanted him but me, which
was fine with me. I don't
like competition.
We have had a great life
together up until the last
10 years or so. Mason is
aging gracefully, and there's
something about him now
that every woman is sud-
denly interested in. They all
treat him like he's a new toy.
They fawn over him and I
become invisible.
We don't get out much,
and I used to think I wanted
to go out more but now I
just want to stay home and
hide my husband inside.
The real problem is, Mason
loves the attention. It could
be what he always wanted.
I don't know how to handle
this without getting my
feelings hurt, pouting and
being incredibly jealous.
He gives me no reason to
think he'll be unfaithful,
but I can't help but worry.
Help! -WIFE OF A LATE
BLOOMER
DEAR WIFE: Congratula-
tions. You are now a mem-
ber of a "club" comprised
of spouses living in the
shadows of actors, politi-
cians, moguls, etc. Howev-
er, your self-esteem issues
could create real problems
for you and your husband if
you don't learn to deal with
them.
You weren't the "only
woman Mason could get"
- you're the woman Ma-
son CHOSE to spend his life
with. The sooner you ac-
cept that, the better off both
of you will be. If you can't
do it on your own, coun-
seling could help because
hiding is not the answer.
DEAR ABBY; My son and
daughter-in-law live like
pigs. Neither one of them
was raised that way. They
live in a beautiful home that
literally smells like a litter
box. I would look the other
way or not visit, but now
they have four children.
Not only are my grand-
children unkempt and
dirty dirty clothes,
smelly shoes, unwashed
hair but my son and his
wife foist their parenting
duties off on their daughter,


Dear Abby

who's only 10. It's HER job

and fed so Mom and Dad
can sleep late. The poor girl
is exhausted all the time.
She doesn't always have the
time to brush her own hair/
teeth before school. She's
often made fun of.
My son sees nothing
wrong with these "chores,"
and I'm afraid to say
anything because I know
my daughter-in-law will
cut me off from the kids.
What's sad is my son allows
it. Am I crazy? Please help.

DEAR ABBY: My father-
in-law drops by our house
nearly every weekend. He
arrives so early that we're
usually still in bed. He also
rides a motorcycle that
sounds like a jet engine and
disturbs our neighbors.
I have asked my hus-
band several times to talk
to his dad about these early
morning visits. He refuses
to say anything. We have
two kids who are 4, and
9 months. Sleep is some-
thing we cherish. What
do I do? -ANNOYED
DAUGHTER-IN- LAW IN
PENNSYLVANIA
DEAR DAUGHTER-
IN-LAW: Because your
husband refuses to stand
up and explain to his father
that he needs to come at
a specific time like 11
o'clock that task now
falls to YOU. Speak up!


"And they shall fight against thee; but they shall not
prevail against thee; for I am with thee, saith the Lord,
to deliver thee. Jeremiah 1:19
The child of God can take this good word into every
battle of life, knowing that final victory is certain. "I
will never leave thee nor forsake thee."

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


I HOROSCOPE
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Maybe you used to give
your love so that you could receive love back, but
now you give love just because it comes so naturally
for you. It's the easiest thing for you to do.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You'll experience a
heightened, joyful feeling, and the best part is that
it will be effortless to maintain. It will come over
you like the sun and warm you through and
through.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Do people choose one
another, or are they meant for one another? You're


not sure if you believe in romantic destiny, but in
certain moments today, it will seem plausible.
CANCER (June 22-July 22).You'll be ultra-observant
today, and exactitude will be your forte. Peruse
important documents, financial statements and
contracts for errors. You could catch a mistake in
time to save the day.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Wherever possible, you'll use
the resources that you encounter to create opportu-
nities. But you won't push. Things have to happen
naturally for you to be excited about them.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You'll tap into an extra
jolt of power and will apply it to improving your


physical performance, work and/or male relation-
ships. A father figure may have a stronger influence
than usual.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You'll be motivated by
a timeline. Make sure you also know what the
rewards are for sticking to each deadline. You're
internally driven, but it also helps to have obvious
external accountability and rewards.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Someone will check in
with you on a subject of great import. Don't worry.
You won't be expected to come up with all the
answers. For now, it's enough that you are open to
hearing what the questions are.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).You feel confident
that you don't have to control a relationship in order
for it to move in a direction that will please you.
You've chosen the right partners and allies.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).You have something
important to impart.You feel that if you touch even
one person with your message, it will have been
worthwhile. The reality is that you'll touch many.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You are someone on
whom nothing is lost. You don't always act on what
you see. In fact, you usually don't feel the need.
You'll log today's observations and wait for the right
moment to act on them.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Unexpected encounters
will get you all charged up. You may run into the one
who makes your heart skip a beat or the one who
secretly adores you from afar.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 7).You'll accomplish a
physical goal and take actions toward optimum
health over the next 10 weeks. In May, you'll act
on something you read or hear and will be wildly
successful. Look for opportunities to expand your
business, enterprises and/or education in June.
The summer will make family memories. Aries and
Sagittarius people adore you.Your lucky numbers
are:16,3, 11,40 and 19.


JANRIC CLASSIC SUDOKU

Adele gets six

Grammy noms
BY NEKESA MUMBI MOODY
AP MUSIC WRITER
It was Adele's year, and when the Grammy Awards are
revealed next February, it very well may be her night.
But on Wednesday night, the British songstress
shared in the Grammy nominations glory. While she was
nominated for six trophies, including album of the year for
"21" and record and song of the year for her bitter groove
"Rolling in the Deep," Bruno Mars and the Foo Fighters
also received six, and it was Kanye West who was the
night's top leader, with seven nominations.
West was nominated for song of the year for his all-
star anthem "All of the Lights," which featured everyone
from Rihanna to Elton John.
But even though the album from which it came, "My
Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy," heralded an epic album
by critics when it was released last year, it was not
featured in the best album category (so far, no obligatory
West rant has surfaced in response).
Other multiple nominees were Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj,
Lil Wayne, Radiohead, and dubstep artist Skrillex, who
landed a bid for best new artist among his surprising five
nominations.
West's joint album with Jay-Z, "Watch the Throne," was
also ignored for best album.

'Wicked' returns to Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall


PROVIDED BY THE BARBARA B. MANN P
PERFORMING ARTS HALL
After breaking box office records and selling
out in record time in 2009, "Wicked," will
return to Fort Myers at the Barbara B.
Mann Performing Arts Hall, March 28-April 15.
Based on the best-selling 1995 novel by
Gregory Maguire, "Wicked" is the untold story of
the witches of Oz.
"In my opinion, the national tour is even better


than the Broadway production, which I also loved.
The producers of 'Wicked' should be compli-
mented for sending out such a high-quality show,"
said Scott Saxon general manager of the Barbara
B. Mann Performing Arts Hall.
"We are thrilled to have this tour of 'Wicked'
return to where it started."
Long before Dorothy drops in, two other girls
meet inthe Land of Oz. One born with emerald-
green skin is smart, fiery and misunderstood.


The other is beautiful, ambitious and very
popular. "Wicked" tells the story of their remark-
able odyssey, and how these two unlikely friends
grow tobecome the Wicked Witch of the West and
Glinda the Good.
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday by
phone at 239-481-4849 or online at
www.bbmannpah.com.
The Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall is
located at 8099 College Parkway, Fort Myers.


The Four Leaf Strummers perform

familiar tunes and Christmas songs

at Fishermen's Village


BY SHIRLEY GEORGE
SUN CORRESPONDENT
he Four Leaf Strummers are an entertain-
ing group of senior citizens who love to
play music, sing, have fun and have old-
time banjo sing-alongs.
The group began in 1993 and includes a few
original members. Their instruments include 10
banjos, one bass guitar, one accordion, and even
a washboard.
The name of the band was chosen because
each performance begins with a popular old
tune, "I'm Looking Over a Four Leaf Clover." It's
the group's tradition to end the performance
with a medley of "So Long, It's Been Good
to Know You," "Yankee Doodle," and "Grand Old
Flag."
The comedian of the band, Carl Herzog, joked,
"Since the audience stands for the patriotic last
song, we're sure to get a standing ovation."


A few members read music, but most of them
play by ear. There's a waiting list of people who
want to join the band, but it must be limited to 13
because of stage sizes.
All members of the band are in their 70s and
80s except Shan Meils, the bass guitar player,
who is 67. "Music and singing keeps us young,"
she said.
Jim Griffiths, the music director, has been with
the band for six years. He plays in a country/rock
band in New Hampshire where he resides for six

Sofia Talvik A Warm Mineral Springs performance


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Locals and tourists alike flock to Warm Min-
eral Springs in North Port for the healing
powers of its mineral-rich 87 degree water.
But on Saturday nights, Cafe Evergreen, on the
Springs'grounds, is transformed into a small
performing arts venue.
"We have entertainers here every Saturday
night," said Gene Vaccaro, general manager. "It's
an ongoing series called Saturday Night Live at
Warm Mineral Springs"' On every other day of
the week, the restaurant closes at five o'clock, as
does the spa.
A very special artist is making an appearance
at Cafe Evergreen on Saturday. Sofia Talvik is
a Swedish singer-songwriter with a sound best
described as folk-pop. "She is quite respected
and well-known in Sweden," said Vaccaro. "A
friend of mine made me aware that she was tour-
ing Florida and we were able to pick her up for a


date. She will have just one more show in Naples
and then that's it for the west coast (of Florida)."
Talvik employs light, clean vocals with soft, airy
instruments. According to her website, she owns
her own record label back in Sweden, and last
year, she was the first Swedish female artist to
ever perform at Lollapalooza.
When you go to Caf6 Evergreen to hear this
international recording artist, you can enjoy a
healthy dinner menu including organic wines
and beers and delicious light desserts. "One
of the special things about our Saturday Night
Live menu is the Steak 51 ,"Vaccaro said. ""It's
seasoned with the 51 minerals that are contained
in the Warm Mineral Springs. We evaporate
water from the springs and make a spice we call
'Mineral Magic.'" That plus the addition of garlic,
paprika and other spices make for an especially
flavorful steak.
Tavlik's shows are at 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
Saturday and are both free.

"Last Romance" opens


at Florida Studio Theatre


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Local actor David Howard will perform again
as the 80-year-old widower Ralph in David
DiPietro's "The Last Romance," on the Gom-
pertz stage of Florida Studio Theatre in Sarasota.
He earned rave reviews for his performance at Flori-
da Repertory Theatre in Fort Myers where he starred in
the regional premiere of the show in April 2009.
Howard is a master at playing such roles and
not just because he is within range of being part
of that age group. He was a regular member of
the company at Asolo Rep for years and also has
performed in several shows at Florida Repertory.
He has performed on Broadway, at Lincoln Center
in films such as Woody Allen's "Deconstructing
Harry" in which he portrayed Robin Williams' doc-
tor and "Moonstuck" in which he portrayed Irv. He
has a MFZ from Brandeis where he was a guest
artist and acting teacher for eight years.
While the play by Tony Award winner DePietro
takes place in New England, mostly in a dog park
and mostly on a park bench, it could just as easily


have been set in Sarasota. There are many men
like Ralph along the cultural coast and many of
them like opera as much as the Young Ralph who
is seen in flashback scenes in the play.
If there still were park benches in downtown
Sarasota's Five Points park, that could easily
be the location of most of this "boy-meets-girl"
story. It begins when Ralph takes a different path for
his daily walk and meets Carol, played by Barbara
Broughton. As their friendship grows, so does the
concern of his sister Rose, played by Marina Re.
Dane Reese, an opera singer, portrays Young Ralph.
FST brought in Drama Desk Award winner
Russell Treyz to direct. "The Last Romance" will
continue through Feb. 12.Tickets are $29-$40 per
person.
FST is located at 1241 N. Palm Ave., Sarasota.
The Gompertz is directly to the north on First
Street and will undergo a $4.5 million renovation
and improvement project that will begin in 2012.
For tickets to this or shows in any of FST's three
venues, visit www.fst.com, call 941-366-9000 or
visit the box office.

Bluegrass Music returns to Venice Saturday


BY JON BAUMANN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The Southwest Florida Bluegrass As-
sociation sponsors its' monthly show at
Ramblers Rest RV park this Saturday,
beginning at 1 p.m.The show lasts approximately
three hours.
Bands from all over the state are welcomed
at each show, which is always held the second
Saturday of each month.The bands performing
range from professionals who make their living
playing bluegrass to locals whose passion is
performing bluegrass but hold down full-time jobs
outside of music to pay the bills.
This weekend the association also provides a
place for musical newcomers to get a start in the


bluegrass sound by hosting a slow jam at 9:30
a.m. Saturday.
Led by Roger Schauer, a noted bluegrass
artist, the jam helps people play along with some
of the veteran bluegrass musicians. While the jam is
open to anyone who wants to play, the instruments
are generally limited to the traditional guitar, fiddle,
mandolin, bass, dobro or 5-string banjo.
Many of the veteran musicians stay the week-
end at the park and can be heard playing in jam
sessions at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
'These folks know what they are doing," said
Southwest Florida Bluegrass Association Presi-
dent Herb Washburn. "Bluegrass is a unique,
American type of music." It is the association's
mission to preserve traditional bluegrass music

for future generations to enjoy, mainly through
these monthly show weekends.
Yearly dues to become a member are $30 per
family and include admission to all the shows.
Currently the association has approximately 275
family memberships.
It's the bluegrass sound that brings many
listeners back to the music of their youth. It is one
of the reasons Washburn, president for 12 years,
became involved in the association. "It reminds
me of the music I used to hear at home as a
child." Washburn recalls fondly, "I grew up listen-
ing to old time music on the radio back then.You
can't hear that type of music on the radio today."
The sounds of Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs,
Bill Monroe and his Blue Grass Boys and
the Stanley Brothers are now just memories
preserved by groups like the members of the
Southwest Florida Bluegrass Association, music
that originated with immigrants from England,
Ireland, Scotland and Germany, who settled in
the Appalachian region of the United States.
Yet it was a movie in the year 2000, '"0
Brother, Where Art Thou?," starring George
Clooney, and a song from that movie, "Man of
Constant Sorrow," winner of a Grammy and the
Country Music Association's Single of the Year,
that introduced bluegrass music to a new audi-
ence in the U.S.
However, the movie itself, a comedy, helped
perpetuate a myth that those associated with
bluegrass were back country hicks. "The movie
was a mixed blessing.There was a stigma con-
nected with bluegrass music originally. People
had a hard time in the old days separating it
from the term hillbilly," explained Washburn. "We
still fight that somewhat, that stigma that we're
a bunch of rubes. The movie didn't change that


perception." It is a myth that could not be further
from the truth. Bluegrass music is a sound like
no other, performed by talented professionals
from all walks of life and all areas of the country.
The cost of the show is $7 per person. Food
will be available for purchase.
Ramblers Rest is located at 1300 North River
Road, Venice.

'One Book, C
BY CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Book discussions add meaning to the read-
ing experience. Sarasota libraries have
promoted the annual "One Book, One
Community" event since 2003 offering a variety
of titles including "Mountains Beyond Mountains,"
by Pulizer Prize winner Tracy Kidder and the clas-
sic novel "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austin.
For contemporary works, the authors
themselves often lead discussions.
Organizers attempted to inspire reading
literacy and community involvement beyond what
had been tried before. Stage productions and film
adaptations inspired even non-readers.
In 2010 "One Book One Community"
organizers went even further, offering the com-
munity an opportunity to select a book from a
list submitted by library patrons from all eight
Sarasota County libraries, Senior Friendship
Centers, high school media centers and online.

"Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins, is a

Chef Velez brings Latin influence to Lulu


BY BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGER
LET'S GO CORRESPONDENT
Luis Gabriel Velez, Chef at Lulu's Restau-
rant in the Wyvern Hotel in Punta Gorda,
doesn't recall a pivotal point in time
when he decided to become a chef. He just
knew he loved cooking with his grandmother
growing up in Puerto Rico. By the age of seven
or eight he was helping in his uncle's restaurant,
first washing dishes and then cooking
alongside him.
At 18, deciding to go for professional training
was a natural next step. So Velez left Puerto
Rico for the New England Culinary Institute in
Montpelier, Vermont.
"I chose the New England Culinary Institute
because it's very hands-on training, and small
classes," Velez explained. "Most of our training
was in their restaurants, bake shops and cater-
ing, not in a classroom."
After graduation, Velez went to work at


the Three Chimneys Inn in
Durham, New Hampshire.
Later, he moved on to
help open two restau-
rants in Portsmouth,
Hew Hampshire.
Velez found New
England to be unlike
anyplace else, with its
scenic beauty and full seasons.
So when an acquaintance, who
admired Velez's cuisine, suggested that he'd be
perfect as the chef of a new hotel his uncle was
planning to open in Florida, Velez shrugged it off.
A few years later he was offered the job of open-
ing that same restaurant, Lulu's, at the Wyvern
Hotel in Punta Gorda.That was three years ago
in September.
Lulu's menu is described as "Latin fusion,"
meaning that Velez has put Latin touches in
many of the dishes. Sometimes it's a cheese or a


sauce, or even the bread.
The dinner menu has
habanero encrusted scal-
/ lops, for example, and
o pork comfit with orange
scented black beans
and the house's guava
barbecue sauce. Lulu's
also has a Tapas, or "small
bites" menu with items such as
chicken kabob with papaya mojo and beef
or chicken empanadas served with roasted red
pepper cream.
But the menu also includes traditional favorites
such as steaks, chops, roast chicken, salmon,
cod and other seafood prepared with Velez's
special touches inspired from many other types
of cuisine.
Since the restaurant serves hotel guests, it
is also open for breakfast and lunch. Breakfast
choices are mainly traditional, with the addition of


'S


huevos rancheros, and a make-your-own-omelet
with the option to add Mexican cheese or chorizo
along with bacon, onions, ham and other more
typical options.
"You have to consider the community
around the restaurant when you are planning
the menu, and give people what they want,"
said Velez. "I could plan a menu of all the
dishes I'd like to have, but it might not be what
people want."
When Lulu's first opened, Velez explained, he
experimented with the menu and paid attention
to what people liked best. The resulting menu hac
Latin-inspired dishes and a little of many other
cuisines, prepared simply with carefully chosen
ingredients that make the difference in each
recipe.
Lulu's is located on the main floor of the
Wyvern Hotel, 101 East Retta Esplanade,
Punta Gorda.

"Arthur Christmas'


BY MICHAEL O'SULLIVAN
THE WASHINGTON POST
Who would have thought we needed
another movie about saving Christmas?
Judging by the full-throated carols that
have been pouring forth from the PA. system of
Bed, Bath and Beyond stores since just after Hal-
loween, the holiday isn't in need of rescuing.
Yet here comes "Arthur Christmas," ho-ho-ho-
ing its way down multiplex chimneys just in
time for the holiday movie season, with an im-
probably charming story about an improbable
hero the titular Arthur Christmas, Santa's
son and his efforts to deliver, to a little girl,
the only present his father forgot to drop off
one fateful Christmas Eve.
The animated film from Aardman Animations
(the British studio that made the clayma-
tion Wallace and Gromit adventures and the
CGI "Flushed Away") is a worthy addition to
the Christmas movie canon. It's funny and
good-looking, with an impeccable voice cast of
British actors.
It's also unexpectedly fresh, despite the
familiar-sounding premise.
In the universe of "Arthur Christmas," Santa
Claus isn't a person, but a job title, handed
down from father to son. When the film opens,
the current Santa (Jim Broadbent) is nearing
retirement age. His North Pole-based operation
is a paragon of 21st-century efficiency, resem-
bling Amazon.com staffed by elf-sized Navy


SEALs. Christmas gifts are delivered from a
gigantic red space ship, backed by a computer-
ized command center that is run, with military
precision, by Santa's No. 1 son, Steve (Hugh
Laurie). Steve wears a uniform of red-and-green
camo and is next in the line of succession when
Father Christmas steps down.
But then a little pink bike earmarked for a
girl in a quaint English village is discovered to
have been misplaced, and Steve persuades his
father to write it off as an acceptable error.
That's unacceptable, however, to Santa's sec-
ond, more idealistic son, Arthur (James McAvoy,
a giddy, goofy delight). With his 136-year-old
grandfather (Bill Nighy), a long-retired Santa,
Arthur commandeers an old-fashioned sleigh and
eight reindeer, and sets out to put things right.
Arthur's inexperience and Grandsanta's senility
combine with the ills of the modern age GPS
glitches, civilian paranoia about airborne terror-
ists to threaten Arthur's mission.
The fate of the film, on the other hand, is never
in doubt. From the movie's opening, Christmas
Eve-set sequence of gift deliveries which paro-
dies "Mission Impossible"-style derring-do to
its touching but never-cloying conclusion, "Arthur
Christmas" demonstrates a storytelling assurance
and visual grace that belies its hero's gawkiness
under pressure.
Arthur Christmas may be an inept bumbler, but
the movie that bears his name (and that shares
his big heart) sure isn't.

Eating out is convenient
and it's nice to have a wide
selection of meals to choose
from, but let's face it, in most
cases it's not a healthy or
economical alternative to
cooking at home. So in this
fast-paced, on-the-go society,
how is it possible to find
time to prepare flavorful,
nutritious meals for our
families?
Rachel Chambers,
Venice Regional Medical
Center clinical dieti-
cian for 14 years, offers
tips to eating healthy at
home.
"It all starts with
planning," she said.
Chambers suggests
picking at least one day
a week to meal plan and
grocery shop. She sits
down and creates her
weekly menu by hand,
but there are many help-
ful planning websites,
such as www.tastyplan- Rach
ner.com. SUN
One of the biggest
challenges to home cooking
can be coming up with simple
recipes which are healthy,
delicious and quick to prepare.
Chambers offers several free
sources designed to help you
try new recipes and keep cook-
ing fun:

recipes in a recipe box. The

ground is required to par-
ticipate. New members are
encouraged to learn at their
own pace and comfort level.
"Although I teach
my Zumba classes in a high
impact way, I give low impact
options for those who need it,"
Pitts said.
Pitts also walks her
members through the dance
steps of a routine and breaks it
down along the way before go-
ing straight through without
stopping.
Geri Neely has been
attending Zumba classes since
2007 and goes four to five


times per week. She's a regular
at Pitts' Monday morning
South County YMCA class.
"The music appeals
to me," Neely said. "Zumba is
exercise in disguise, it's a lot of
fun."
Recently, Neely had
a heart stress test, which went
wonderfully.
"I know it's from
working with Zumba," she
said. "I feel toned, more alive."
Pitts teaches Zumba
classes at the South County
Family YMCA, Jacaranda West
Country Club and Nokomis
Community Center.
"All Zumba instruc-
tors are different," she said.
"The rates, music and style can
be different. You have to find
the class best for you."

Journey down



memory lane


BY KATHRYN KLEIN
DENINNO

When's the last time you
printed and labeled family pic-
tures or reminiscenced about
important life events? For
caregivers and loved ones be-
ing cared for, a journey down
memory lane can be especially
healing.
Senior Friendship Centers
and Tidewell Hospice teamed
up in October for a "making
memories" class, designed to
encourage caregivers to place


recollections on paper.
Suzanne Barksdale, Tide-
well community relations
representative, shared her in-
spiration for creating memory
books and helping others do
the same.
She passed around a
"memories of me" journal
that her mother created as a
13-year-old girl for a school
assignment.
"This book is filled with
pictures and writings from
my mother as a young girl,"
Barksdale said. "In it she writes

about things such as her first
bike ride, what food she liked
and her favorite teacher."
Unfortunately, Barksdale
didn't discover the journal
until after her mother's death.
"I would've loved to be able
to ask her questions about it,"
she said.
During the class, Barks-
dale gave each caregiver two
memory books, filled with
questions designed to get the
memories flowing. The books
included sections such as:

*All about me
*My favorites
*The early years
*School days
*Where I lived

Barksdale encouraged class
members to customize the
inside and outside of one of
the memory books to fit their
own personalities and then to


spend time with their loved
ones so they could do the same
with the second book.
For the front cover, she
suggested that caregivers trace
one of their hands.
"Tell us a story of what
your hand has done: quilting,
cooking or caring for your
children," she said.
As class participants
worked on their book designs,
they were encouraged to
share some of their very first
memories.
Pam Edmunds, who was
a caregiver for her father,
remembered a walk with her
grandfather when she was
about 2 years old
"I still remember the smell
of the trees," she said.
Ann Collins, caregiver
for her husband of 52 years,
shared her earliest memory at
3 years old.
"My dad was overseas in





the Navy during Word War
II," she said. "I remember my
mom listening to this news
on the radio, going into the
bathroom and kneeling down
and crying."
Favorite childhood foods
were another topic of discus-
sion.
Patricia Meyer, who was a
caregiver for her father, loved
her mother's chicken and rice.
"I've made it but it doesn't
taste anything like hers and it
never will," she said
Before the class ended, -
Barksdale encouraged par-
ticipants to take more time to
think about special memories
when filling in their book.
"Memory books such as
these can become a legacy and
a family treasure for genera-
tions to come," she said.
Above, Pam Edmunds takes time to answer some of her memory book ques-
tions.

Quilts made to wrap you in love


BY KATHRYN KLEIN
DENINNO

A quilt evokes feelings of
warmth and comfort. It does
more than just protect you
from the chill; it gives you
something familiar to hold on
to. A quilt provides a feel-
ing of being wrapped in love.
Handmade quilts are precious
treasures, which may be passed
down from generation to
generation.

The Venice Area Quilters
Guild understands the abil-
ity a quilt has to touch lives.
They've been making and
donating exquisite quilts to the
community since 1983, when
Eileen Padovano founded the
guild.
Caryl Coss, president and
10-year member of VAQG, is
proud of the amazing tal-
ent and generosity of the 324
members, all who donate their
time to the non-profit organi-
zation.


"They're an amazing group
of women who are constantly
giving of their time and sup-
plies," she said. "They create a
never-ending flow of quilts."
Honey Finney and Bonnie
McRae, VAQG community
service chairs, deliver hand-
made, colorful quilts to the
Children First Head Start
program.
"We usually donate over
100 quilts per year to Head
Start," Finney said. "We cush-
ion it. If they ask for 40, we
give them 50 quilts so that no
child gets the last one."
Jennifer Kinney, Children
First family advocate, said the
children get to use their cho-
sen quilt for nap time.
"At the end of the school
year, each child gets to take
home their quilt to keep," said
Kinney.
In addition to Head Start
quilt donations, VAQG mem-
bers donate quilts throughout
the year to Tidewell Hospice
and have filled special requests


from Our Mother's House and
various churches in the com-
munity.
VAQG periodically donates
red, white and blue signature
quilts to Tidewell Hospice
to be used in pinning cer-


emonies for hospice veterans.
"Everyone who comes to
a veteran's pinning ceremony
party gets to sign the quilt and
then the veteran has a token
and a snuggly at the same
time," Finney said.
Guests, doctors and

nurses often sign donated
VAQG quilts of other hospice
patients and these quilts are
precious mementos for the
families.
Coss remembers taking her
aunt a VAQG quilt when she
entered hospice. During the
three-month stay, the nurses
who cared for her aunt all
signed the quilt.
"The morning she died my
cousin was knocking on my
door with this quilt clutched
in her arms," Coss said. "She
brought it in and started
reading it to me. She was so
touched by the different things
written about her mom."
VAQG quilts are designed
and created during informal
guild meetings, at formal
classes, in circle groups, at
member's homes and during
National Quilt Day events.
Many quilt donations
are dropped off to Deborah
Iversen, a founding member


of VAQG and owner of
Deborah's Quilt
Basket on the
Island.
More than
200 quilts will
be on display at
the Venice Quilt
Show, March 31
and April 1, 2012.
Quilts will be auc-
tioned and raffled
during this event
and more than
1,800 handmade
boutique items will
be on sale. Proceeds from tris
event go to Southern Cour r,
Food Pantry, American Cain ic
Research and will be re-in-
vested back into VAQG for
ongoing community service.

Keeping holiday traditions alive


-w -
es


BY KATHRYN KLEIN
DENINNO

Holiday traditions are
the ties that bind, espe-
cially across miles and
generations. They're
important because
they provide a sense
of family history,
giving us roots and
stability. And
with the current
economy making
it difficult for some
to travel, these
traditions manage
to bring everyone a
bit closer.
William and
Carole Wemesfelder,
Florida retirees,
have adult children
and grandchildren
flung far and wide.
"We have family
in Delaware, New


b~.



a4~


York, Oregon, Tennessee and
even Chile," Carole said.
The Wemesfelders have
passed on typical holiday
traditions to their children,
such as decorating a Christmas
tree with keepsake ceramic
ornaments, baking homemade
sugar cookies and exchang-
ing Christmas cards. But one
tradition stands out from the
rest.
"In 1950, when I was
8-years-old, my dad got me
an American Flyer train set,"
William said. "I found it set up
beside the tree that Christmas
morning."
Throughout the years
William has made a point to
set up his now antique train
set in all its glory around his
Christmas tree.
This holiday tradition
made an impression upon
their family and is being kept
alive for future Wemesfelder

generations. All who visit mar-
vel at William's train set.
"My son, Mark, bought a
train set for his two children
and sets it up under their
Christmas tree each year," Wil-
liam said.
Lynn Egglefield Haag and
Lori Egglefield Walker, twins
who now live in different areas
of Florida, recall traditions
passed down from their late
mother, Janet Egglefield.
"On Christmas Eve, Mom
would make a big dish of
lasagna for dinner," Haag said.
"Then we'd go to Grandma
Dede's house to gather with
extended family and exchange
gifts."
Haag, her husband and her
young daughter now live in
the Nokomis house that Edith
"Dede" Egglefield had built in
1963.
"On Christmas morn-
ing we awoke to the smell of
Mom's delicious sour cream
coffee cake," Walker said. "This
would be followed by a full
breakfast once presents were
opened."
Both Haag and Walker
make a point to share their
mother's holiday traditions
with their families.


Haag also holds on to two
special holiday traditions
passed down from her
Norwegian mother-in-law,
Lola Haag, who resides in
California.

"Lola hosts a Norwegian
cookie baking party each
holiday season," she said,
"making sure to toast the im-
portant women in our lives."
Haag plans to host her
own cookie party in Florida
the same day as Lola this year.
"We can Skype together
and have one big virtual
cookie party," she said.
On Christmas Eve, Lola
also makes individual dishes
of Risengrot, a creamy rice
pudding dessert.
"She puts an almond in
just one dish and the person
with the almond gets good
luck for the year and a special
gift," Haag said.
Walker will be in Germa-
ny with her military husband
this Christmas.
"We'll have to make rice
pudding too and share the
moment with Lynn and her
family using Facetime with
our iPhones," she said.

Cutting edge robotic technology at VRMC


BY KATHRYN KLEIN
DENINNO

Venice Regional Med-
ical Center has added cutting
edge robotic-assisted surgeries
in the areas of urology, general
surgery, cardio/thoracic and
gynecology.

Matthew Ercolani,
MD, is the VRMC medical di-
rector of robotic surgery and a
specialist in urological surgery
at RTR Urology. He studied
robotics throughout his six-
year urology residency and
then specialized in minimally
invasive and robotic urology
during a six-month fellow-
ship in France. He brought
this wealth of experience and
expertise with him when he
joined both RTR Urology and
VRMC in April.


Ercolani is one of
nine surgeons at VRMC cur-
rently performing robotic-as-
sisted surgeries using the da
Vinci SiuM surgical system,
which is considered the most
advanced platform for mini-
mally invasive surgery avail-
able in the world today.

This robotic system
consists of an ergonomic
surgeon's console, a patient-
side cart with four interactive
robotic arms and an enhanced
high definition 3-dimensional
vision system. It integrates
this high definition 3-D vision
with wristed instruments and
intuitive motion control.
It's important to
make the distinction that the
robotic system is a tool for
surgeons, not a replacement.
It allowssurgeons to overcome
limitations of conventional

surgical technologies and
make possible new minimally
invasive options for complex
surgical procedures.
"Many of the pa-
tients think the robots do the
surgeries by themselves, but
that's not true," Ercolani said.
"The robot is a tool and the
surgeon needs to be trained
how to use this tool. It's still a
laparoscopic surgery and if the
robot failed to function, I'd be
comfortable moving forward
and completing the surgery."
Since his residency,
Ercolani has been involved in
more than 350 robotic cases.
VRMC acquired and imple-
mented the da Vinci SiTM
surgical system at the end of
March and already its surgeons
have completed more than 100
cases using it.
"We're projecting to
do more than 200 cases per
year starting in 2012," he said.
So what does the op-
tion of robotic surgery mean
to the patient?
It may mean smaller
incisions, significantly less
pain, less blood loss and scar-
ring, a shorter recovery time
and a faster return to normal
daily activities.

ques-
tion Ercolani gets when
educating his patients on the
robotic system is, "When can I
get back to playing golf?"
"With these tech-
niques, people are doing their
regular activities, including
golfing, in about a month
or sometimes less after their
surgery," he said.
Ercolani is proud to
be a part of the skilled VRMC
surgical team.
"We have very well
trained surgeons," he said.
"Our staff, for our area, is
second to none in what they
can provide. The robot has
just taken it a step further and
made it a little bit easier to
give state-of-the-art care. It's a
great tool. I'm very happy that
we have it."

MELT


the stress and


pain
BY KATHRYN KLEIN
DENINNO
Stress is a part of life. Jobs,
kids and relationships at times
can send us into a tizzy. Books
are written on techniques to
deal with stress, suggesting
exercise, sleep, meditation and
journaling as ways to cope.
But what about the stress
of day-to-day living on our in-
ternal body, how do we control
the pain caused by this?

system, allowing stuck stress to
be released and reducing pain

"God made the body to

"Clients can purchase the

ment kit for $40," she said.

This kit includes six MELT

Radwick offers her clients
an overview of the techniques
and recommends MELTing at
least once a week. She MELTs
every day.
"The self-treatments can
be done anywhere; at home, at
work or on-the-go," she said.
"It doesn't take long,"
Radwick said. "The hand
technique takes roughly 10
to 12 minutes and the foot
technique takes usually 15
to 18 minutes. There's also a
quick self-treatment that only
takes about one minute for the
hands or the foot."


The MELT method offers
results that you can see and
feel after just one session.
"You begin to have a sense
of well being," Radwick said.
"You find that you're sleeping
better, you begin to look and
feel better, your joints are not
as achy and your range of mo-
tion begins to improve."
MELT is for anyone who
wants to slow down the aging
process and live better, longer.
"It's not age defying. It's
helping the body as it's aging
to be pain free," Radwick said.
"It's not a cure all, it's helping
to restore and rebalance the
nervous system."

What began as a school
fundraiser for Island Vil-
lage Montessori Schools has
evolved into an annual Jog-A-
Thon with a focus on fighting
childhood obesity.
Kym Elder, founder and
development director of
IVMS, initially wanted to cre-
ate a fundraiser that allowed
students to participate in a
healthy way, rather than selling
candy door-to-door.
"It was a way to create
school spirit as well," she said.
The early Jog-A-Thon
events involved students gath-
ering pledges for running laps
on school grounds. In 2003,


the event was expanded and
taken off campus.
"It became quite a popular
event," Elder said. "The parents
wanted it to have more room,
so I suggested moving to
Pinebrook Park and making it
a field day instead."
Upon joining the physical
education team in May 2009,
Whitney Carter was given
responsibility for organizing
Jog-A-Thon. Carter has made
it her goal to use this oppor-
tunity to raise awareness in
the fight against childhood
obesity.
She invites fitness groups
from around the community
to set up activity stations at
Jog-A-Thon. Students can
select in advance the stations





they'd like to explore.
Riding the bus to Pin-
ebrook Park in the morning,
students begin running fitness
laps for about 20 minutes,
getting a stamp for each lap
they complete. Afterwards they
rotate through their chosen
fitness stations.
"We're exposing the kids to
various fitness-related activi-
ties they can do around town,
such as t-ball, gymnastics or
flag football," Carter said.
Instructors from each
fitness group give students a
chance to participate in an
activity and then send them
home with more information
to share with their parents.
"Hopefully by trying the
activities the kids will be
encouraged to join something
outside of school hours," Cart-
er said. "I want to get them off
the couch, quit playing video
games and watching television
and get them active instead."
Nicole Vitiello, a seventh
grader at IVMS middle school,
has been participating in Jog-
A-Thon since her kindergarten
year.
Vitiello has run up to 15
consecutive laps in past Jog-
A-Thon events, but admits
she still enjoys exploring the
stations the most.

event. PHOTO PROVIDED B

"I've tried taekwondo,
cheerleading, golf, soccer and
yoga," Vitiello said. "They've
all been fun."
The Jog-A-Thon raises
money through sponsorships
from parents, as well as small
and large businesses through-
out the community. Donations
are used to fund outside fitness
equipment, presidential fitness
program prizes and hopefully
a covered physical education
facility.
"The kids are always ex-
cited for Jog-A-Thon," Carter
said. "They can't wait to get off
the bus and we see giant smiles
on their faces."
For the students, Jog-A-
Thon is all about having a fun
field day.
"But we're also giving them
tools around town so they can
get up and get moving," Carter
said.
Sponsor donations for
the upcoming Feb. 16 and 17,
2012, IVMS Jog-A-Thon will
be accepted through Jan. 1.

Light Lemon and Dill Hummus


can (15-16 ounces) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
tablespoons fresh lemon juice

A crunchy California
endive leaf filled with a dollop
of creamy chickpea hummus
makes a great guilt-free snack.
The contrast of the creamy
hummus, lightened with olive
oil and lemon, and the crisp
endive leaf is both refreshing
and delicious.
Easy to make, lighter,
fresher-tasting chickpea hum-
mus, made without the tahini,
a rich sesame paste, shows
off its versatility in the basic
recipe, plus four simple varia-
tions: roasted red pepper and
walnuts, curry powder and
grated ginger, avocado and
cilantro, and grated Parmesan
and sun-dried tomatoes. Keep
one or all on hand for a casual
get-together, cocktail nibbles
or snack attack.
The perfect slim-
mer dipper, California endive
leaves are ideally shaped. They
easily glide through a bowlful
of dip or safely cradle a spoon-
ful of dip without the threat of
drips or spills.

Endive -just one calorie per
leaf.
At approximately one
calorie per leaf, and with an


impressive nutritional profile
of vitamins A, B, C and K,
beta-carotene, potassium and
fiber, the concept of substitut-
ing California endive leaves
for more-caloric chips and
crackers is a no-brainer for the
health-conscious, savvy cook.
Because the cost per pound of
endive is cheaper than most
chips and crackers, it's a less
expensive choice as well.
Each head of Cali-
fornia endive has about 15
leaves that are large enough for
dipping. To prepare the leaves,
slice about 1/2 inch from the
base of each head and carefully
separate the leaves. As each
layer of leaves is separated,
cut thin slices from the base
until all the larger leaves are
released.
For extra crispness,
give the leaves a 10-minute
soak in a bowl of ice water.
Drain, pat dry and store in a
plastic storage container or
food storage bag. Save the
tightly packed endive hearts
for a vegetable stir-fry or salad.
Because endive keeps
much longer than other let-
tuces (10 to 14 days), there's
even more reason to add
American-grown California
endive to your shopping list of
refrigerated staples.
