Pilot walks away from crash


By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR
The pilot of a single-
engine Cessna 152 flight
school aircraft was uninjured
after crashing into a build-
ing in the 500 block of Base
Avenue near Venice Munici-
pal Airport Friday morning.
The incident occurred
around 10:30 a.m., knock-
ing out power to roughly
250 customers, according to
Florida Light & Power. Power
was restored early that
evening.
The pilot, Oleg Anatol-
lyevich Bachurin, a former
Russian Air Force jet pilot,
was practicing touch-and-go
landings at the airport when
the engine quit and he lost
control of his aircraft.
The plane hit a telephone
pole, which snapped another
pole a half block away, then
hit Alliance Fire & Safety's
building on Base Avenue
and dropped into its outside
storage area. The company
sells fire extinguishers and
safety equipment.
The plane, one of the blue-
and-yellow fleet of Florida
Flight Training School, was
heavily damaged.
The only person onboard,
said city spokeswoman Pam
Johnson, was pilot Bachurin.
No one on the ground was
injured.
Bachurin was interviewed
by Venice Police Depart-
ment detectives at the Venice
Municipal Airport admin-
istrative building using a
law-enforcement translating
service as the pilot speaks
little English, Johnson said.
Arne Kruithof, president
and CEO of Florida Flight
Training Center, was also
interviewed by detectives.
He said the pilot "didn't suf-
fer a scratch."
Kruithof estimated the
pilot had between 30 and
35 hours of training locally,
but came with thousands
of hours under his belt.
Bachurin was taking flying
lessons to get his commer-
cial pilot's certification.
Venice firefighters and
police were on the scene
within moments, as were
Sarasota County special
operations vehicles, Johnson


Venice firefighters and police detectives survey the scene of a single engine aircraft crash Friday morning in Venice.
No injuries were reported.

said. They stood by in case of
fire and to prevent injuries
from downed power lines.
The Federal Aviation
Administration and National
Transportation Safety Board,
which investigates aircraft


accidents, were notified.
FPL restoration crews were
on scene to replace the two
damaged poles.
Venice Municipal Airport
has about four incidents
annually, mostly minor.


"We just looked at the
(school's) statistics one
crash every five years," Kruit-
hof said. "That's not bad for
a training school."

Triathlon


proposal


on agenda

By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR
Venice City Council will
hear details Tuesday about a
nationally recognized triathlon
that race organizers say Venice
is a perfect fit for.
Revolution Triathlon of
Virginia would put its event
headquarters at Sharky's on
the Pier Restaurant. The bicy-
cle route, still in the planning
stages, would span Sarasota
and Charlotte counties. City
staff say it would be one of the
largest public events the city
has ever hosted.

Charter


committee


reboots

By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR
Like fixing a frozen com-
puter, the Venice Charter
Review Committee this week
decided to hit the restart
button.
The committee's prog-
ress came to a grinding halt
Wednesday after taking
months to painstakingly go
through each section of the
charter. It flagged the ones
needing modernizing or more
work.
By the time the members
finished, almost the entire
charter was up for review a
daunting task which invited
the question, does council
really want an entire rewrite?
City Attorney Bob Anderson
told the group last month they
were looking "too finely" at the
document, and warned legal
expenses could add up quickly
if the intent is to secure a legal
analysis of every charter item.

Pet rescue operation closed


By GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER
The Sarasota County Fire Mar-
shal temporarily closed down a
pet rescue operation Wednesday
after complaints of foul odor and
unsafe conditions.
According to Wendy Rose,
Sarasota County Sheriff's Office
community affairs manager,
owner Marc Marois will be cited
for having crates that are too
small and other violations.
Nearly 40 puppies were
removed from MM Pet Rescue,
1779 South Tamiami Trail, in
South Venice.


The fire marshal also found the
premises a fire hazard, with no
fire sprinklers, no fire alarm and
no evacuation plan.
There are also zoning viola-
tions. The location is zoned as a
retail store, not a pet shelter.
"His (the owner's) heart is in
the right place. He is just not
properly equipped," Rose said.
"They need a clean and more
appropriate facility. There's no
protection here should there be
a fire."
The animals were impounded
at the owner's request, she said.
The abandoned pets will be
transported to the county animal


shelter and screened for health
issues. -
"We will put them up for adop-
tion as soon as possible," Rose
said.
Many of the pets are rescued coUNrr
from Miami-Dade shelters
known to euthanize strays on
relatively short notice.
Marois purchases the ani- '"
mals, provides vaccines, micro-
chips and a general health
check-up, then sells them out
of his thrift store, usually for SUN PHOTO BY GREG GILES

nal $150 to $200 investment, A MM Pet Rescue volunteer says one last goodbye as Sarasota County

Smart cycling

By MONTY ANDREWS
GUEST WRITER
When you're peddling along a
roadway, your bicycle is classified
as a vehicle under Florida's Uniform
Traffic Control Law.
You, the individual in control of
the bicycle, are considered a driver
and therefore must follow the traf-
fic laws common to all drivers as
well as well as those developed for
bicycles. A cyclist, however, is not
required to have a driver license.
A common violation often seen
on roadways is cyclists riding
against the flow of vehicular traffic.
Cyclists must ride with the flow
of traffic. Riding in the opposite
direction facing oncoming traffic
increases your chance of a crash.

CHARTER

Instead, board member
Don O'Connell suggested
the group tackle the
hot-button issues first,
and deal with any minor
changes later.
"I think the council will
tell us don't rewrite a new
charter," O'Connell said.
"I don't want to spend a
year and they tell us 'we
don't want a new char-
ter, we just want these
amendments.'"
Council previously told
the committee members
it was up to them to
make that determina-
tion. With four council
members in the audience
Wednesday morning
in council chambers,


DECEMBER 10, 2011 WEEKEND EDITION


it was Jeanette Gates
who stepped up to the
microphone.
"It's frustrating because
we've already had public
input," Gates said. "You
know the hot buttons,
and what needs to be
changed.
"We have in place a
charter that historically
has worked. I'm con-
cerned you are going to
discard this charter, pos-
sibly due to the unprec-
edented economic times
and possibly because
we've been changing our
city leadership over the
past couple of years. In
no way should you do a
total discard."
With that, commit-
tee chair Jeff Boone
requested all members
bring a list of their hot-
button issues to the next


meeting on Jan. 25.
Committee Member
Marshall Happer said
the short list is likely to
resemble a list of topics
the mayor included in a
recent survey to residents.
In the mayor's Get
It Done 2012 Survey,
distributed in the city
newsletter just last week,
Mayor John Holic asked
for input on the following:
How many people
should serve on council,
five or seven?
Should they be
elected at-large, by
district or at-large but be
required to live within
a designated district for
each council seat?
Should the mayor
be elected at-large, by a
vote of council or rotated
among council members?
Should council terms


be three years with a
limit of three terms, four
years with a limit of two
terms or no term limits
at all?
As the November
referendum on coun-
cil health benefits was
somewhat unclear,
should council members
be allowed to partici-
pate in the city program
and continue to pay the
premium with no sub-
sidies, or not? If they do
participate, should their
premiums be subsidized
at the same rate as any
other city employee?
Should the finance
director position be
reinstated as a charter
officer?
The mayor also
included questions on
which level of service
residents would like,


and if they'd be willing
to pay additional taxes
to preserve the current
level of services, includ-
ing twice-weekly garbage
pickup. The results will


be compiled in the next
month.
The Charter Review
Committee may begin
meeting twice monthly
in February.

County to pay share of Springs tax


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

Three days after North
Port city commission-
ers agreed to pay an
unexpected property tax
bill of nearly $30,000 for
the jointly owned Warm
Mineral Springs Day Spa,
county commissioners
voted to pay half the bill
this year.
Last December, the city
and county commissions
jointly purchased the

Council will also
consider a nearly $1 mil-
lion budget amendment
being driven by unex-
pected medical claims.
A draft ordinance shows
the $900,000 will come
from reserves. A budget
amendment by city staff
requests $375,000 to pay
for unanticipated medi-
cal claims, $295,000 for
paving improvements

according to one
volunteer.
MM Pet Rescue opened
in June and reportedly
passed a health inspec-
tion early Wednesday. But
hours later fire officials
issued the temporary
closure notice.

unteers and staff were
ordered out into the
parking lot shortly after
10 a.m., where they
had congregated after

property for $5.5 million
and agreed to negoti-
ate a division of "excess
expenses" in running
North Port's only tourist
attraction.

Furst assessed the city
because of the conces-
sions sold at the day
spa. While the county
is legally immune from
paying property tax, the
city is not. The approxi-
mately $30,000 is the

authorized by council in
July and September and
$280,000 for refunding
of outstanding bonds
approved in January.
Also for consideration
on first reading is an
ordinance to ban golf

mowing between the
hours of 9 p.m. and
6:30 a.m.
Finance Director Jeff
Snyder and Planning
Administrator Chad
Minor will go over the
history of Venice's unique

warning of the closure.
The idea was to place
the pets with volunteers
until a more suitable
facility is located, but
deputies would not allow
their removal while they
processed the animals.
By 4 p.m. volunteers
were upset the pets
hadn't been watered
or relieved and had
not received their
medications.

began working at the
shelter two weeks ago,
said the store should
have been given more
time to find homes for
the animals.

bill of almost $60,000
- of which the county's
$30,000 is exempt.
County commissioners
also directed the county
administrator Terry
Lewis now and Randall
Reid after he steps in,
in late January to
enter into discussions
with North Port staff to
possibly restructure the
memorandum of under-
standing between the
two local governments to

"extraordinary mitiga-
tion" fee. The fee was
designed to make future
developments pay for
themselves without using
ad valorem tax revenue
to pay for growth. The fee
was established in 1999
with the Henry Ranch
annexation, which later
became the Venetian
Golf & River Club.
In the past decade the
fee raised $2.4 million
in revenue, but much of
that was realized only
during the real estate
boom.

"It's ridiculous," Mars-
den said. "If there is a
problem with the condi-
tions, then just tell us
what to do, but don't just
take the dogs."
"We put a lot of money
and time and love into
these dogs," said volun-
teer Lynne Cirillo. "It's a
shame. He (the owner)
has a bond with each and
every one of them. It's
really a hardship on the
dogs."
Those interested in
adopting the pets should

The two boards will
hold a joint meeting on
March 20.
"I believe there are
ways we can structure

Commissioner Christine

the motion to pay the

similar circumstances
when she was on the

OUR VIEW


Bypass widening has been delayed long enough


It takes a long time to build a
road.
Seventeen years ago the Florida
Department of Transportation first
did a study to determine what should
be done to improve traffic flow on the
U.S. 41 Bypass in Venice from Bird Bay
Plaza to Center Road. The recommen-
dation: Widen the entire stretch from
four to six lanes.
Plans were drawn up and the
project was put on the list for fund-
ing. Traffic problems mounted as
the population grew. And we waited.
Meanwhile, U.S. 41 was widened
from Bird Bay north to State Road
681 in Nokomis, isolating the nar-
rower 2.4-mile bottleneck between
the wider northern section and the
six-lane U.S. 41 that runs from Center
Road through South Venice to the
State Road 776 turnoff. To visualize,
think hourglass.
In 2007, the state re-evaluated


the road plans and came up with
the same solution: six lanes all the
way. In 2009, the Department of
Transportation floated the idea of
building a roundabout at the major
crossroad, East Venice Avenue.
Then, the regional road planning
organization the Sarasota-Man-
atee Metropolitan Planning Orga-
nization sliced the project into
three segments and recommended
the southern portion Gulf Coast
Boulevard to Center Road remain
four lanes.
That didn't sit well with local people
who had long been expecting the
wider road. So, earlier this year, the
MPO ordered up something called a
peer review to reassess its plan. That
review, released last week, found:
More "capacity" is needed to
accommodate traffic growth in the
future.
Roundabouts wouldn't work.


And six lanes is the best way to do
it.
Deja vu. It just seems so 1994.
The Sarasota-Manatee MPO will
meet Monday to consider the peer
review recommendations. We recom-
mend it accept the findings and set a
course to widen the entire segment,
once and for all.
U.S. 41 Venice Bypass is not only a
major thoroughfare for local Venice
traffic, but also a major north-south
artery for all South County, for resi-
dents and visitors in North Port and
Englewood. It is a critical commuter
corridor, especially from the south.
The various reports and studies
parse details of traffic capacity and
road speed, but one only needs to step
back or fly overhead to see the
problem: On either side of this seg-
ment, six lanes of traffic must squeeze
into four lanes. It's a bottleneck, a
choke-point. It makes little sense now,


and will make even less as the region
continues to grow.
As we said, the project has been
broken down into three stages.
Funding already is in the pipeline
for widening the section from Bird
Bay to Albee Farm Road starting
in 2015. The middle section, Albee
Farm Road to Gulf Coast Boulevard,
is ready for construction starting
in 2014; that primarily involves
improvements at the East Venice
Avenue intersection. The 1.5-mile
southern section to Center Road is
still up in the air.
Now estimated to cost $25 million,
construction is not expected to begin
for another 10 years, at a minimum.
At that point, we expect the traf-
fic problem will only become more
obvious.
Enough delays. Now is the time to
set the wheels in motion.
Six lanes all the way.


Deposit, no return


"We hold these Truths to
be self-evident, that all Men
are created equal, that they
are endowed by their Cre-
ator with certain unalienable
Rights that among these are
Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of
Happiness ..."
Arguably, this is one of
the most powerful lines ever
penned. It is a direct quote
from the Declaration of Inde-
pendence, a "Unanimous Dec-
laration of the 13 United States
of America on July 4th, 1776."
I read through the whole
Declaration several times and
could not find the part that
read "except for water and
sewer hook-up privileges in
Venice, Fla." Maybe the city
could point that out to me -
or better yet, get me to the
part that says it's OK to treat
American citizens differently
based on whether they own a
home or rent a home.
I really don't think anyone
would argue the need for a
deposit; it comes with the
privilege. Furthermore, all
would agree it's a fair system
that the deposit is refunded
based upon the users consis-
tently fulfilling their end of the
pact. The core of the issue is
the audacity of a public utility
treating citizens differently
in the amount of the deposit
charged and whether their
money gets back to them in a
timely manner.
I am floored at that audacity
- more, I'm surprised that the
American spirit allows this to
continue. I may be naive; how-
ever, isn't this stuff meant to
be for the people? The people
who pay the same tax as every-
one else to get food, and the
same price for said food. For
the people I hear that slogan
elsewhere nowadays; can any-
one help here? Oh that's right,
there's a law firm that uses that
slogan all over the state. Pretty
ironic, don't you think?
Since it's my money that is
being held ransom, protecting
this fine city from my packing


my belongings and running in
the middle of the night, I have
the right to know exactly what
is being done with my forced
savings account.
Does the mysterious person
or persons who hold my small
fortune pay me interest? Is
my money held in a drawer,
guarded 24 hours a day? I need
accountability here. I have
decided a written monthly
statement mailed to me next-
day delivery to my rental home
while that program lasts is how
I would like that handled.
I suspect I am lumped with
an entire group in the same
boat and our money is draw-
ing interest in an account
somewhere. Again, this is
just speculation. If that is the
case, will I and my new found
friends split that interest? How
does that work?
Obviously, the city has
decided that since we are
renters and we don't have the
proper behavior skills to be
included with homeowners,
there should be rules. What's
next? Can we only have vehi-
cles that are some variation of
red, letting folks know imme-
diately that we are the dreaded
renters? Perhaps a mark on our
doors? Landlords are not going
to be happy with that one.
Better yet, let's have all rent-
ers come to city hall for review
and maybe a parade after-
ward, where we can clearly be
pointed out to the population
as renters.
Here is a question: Can we
as renters one day buy, and
will the city take $125 off of
our refund and use that as
a deposit? I have a serious
interest-earning issue then.
What to do, what to do?
I am a little agitated at this
whole thing, and mine is just
one opinion; however, my
heart goes out to those who
don't have the $350 for what
is definitely a pursuit-of-hap-
piness-type of issue, for those
who are trying to take care of a
family. Silliness like this creates
decisions Americans should
not have to make.
I read where we were proud
that this policy saves the city
money. In my mind you'd
better give me a better answer
than that.
"We hold these truths to
be self-evident" beats your
answer every time.

Unclean. I see benefits
from the council's latest
attack on overtime. I was
driving down West Venice
Avenue on Sunday morning
after the parade. Usually it's
nice and cleaned up, but this
year nothing. West Venice
Avenue looks like a pigsty.
Maybe we should cancel the
holiday parade.
Cross. I enjoyed the com-
ment recently about pedes-
trian crosswalks. The other
day when I was slowly driving
down West Venice Avenue, I
actually heard pedestrians
say as I went by, "Aren't they
supposed to stop for us?" The
answer, as I understand it is,
"No!" If it's not a crosswalk,
pedestrians are supposed to
look both ways and watch for
cars across the street when
there's an opening. You don't
just proceed across the road
and assume we have to stop.
As far as common sense goes,
we shouldn't have to, either. I
know in the old days people
used to look before they
crossed the street and they
yielded to cars. Now it's turned
around the other way, but I
didn't get that memo.
Prefers original. Let me
tell you something. Medicare
Advantage plans by private
insurances are a scam. It does
not replace Medicare origi-
nal. They don't let you use the
doctor you have used over the
years and who knows your
case. You have to use the doc-
tors that they put together,
of unknown quality. With
Medicare, I pick my doctor,
no strings attached. They
also advertise that if you'll get
Medicare Advantage you get
back $1,156 in a year. Yeah, just
try and get that back. I couldn't
get heads or tails out of it and
could see nothing coming back
there.
Kudos. This is a Thanks-
giving and Christmas story:


Let 'em


Have It
The day after Thanksgiving,
I heard a noise outside my
house and then I heard some-
one bring my garbage pail
alongside the house. Being
partially handicapped, I was
grateful to whoever I thought
did this. Within an hour, I had
a call from the company that
picks up waste in the county.
He said he was sorry to say
that the driver had called and
that he had broken my gar-
bage pail, but that they would
replace it, which they did two
days later, on Monday. Why
is this a Thanksgiving and
Christmas story? A Thanksgiv-
ing story because the driver
didn't do a hit-and-run, but
rather was willing to call his
superiors and tell on himself.
It's a Christmas story because
here is an example of a com-
pany that allows its employ-
ees to admit mistakes and
promptly tries to rectify the
situation. The hope of Christ-
mas is that other companies
in America, on Wall Street and
elsewhere, will stop covering
up their massive wrongdo-
ing, stop the greed and give


the American consumer a fair
shake. My Christmas thanks
go out to the people who
handled this small matter in
an exemplary way.
Unflagged. I'm calling to
question the policy about
a local bank not flying the
American flag in front of its
branch in the Venice area. I
called all the way up to the
president of the district and
she said that they want to fly
the flag. I think it is a disgrace
for all the veterans in the
area. I think I'm going to go
and take my money out of the
bank and put it someplace
else. Not very patriotic at the
time of war.
Unseated. My handicapped
mom and I did not get to see
the parade because someone
stole our chairs. We tried to
view the parade from the back
of the crowd. Everyone in the
crowd stood up in front of
their chairs so the woman in
the wheelchair could not see.
I'm very much in favor of the
chairs arriving at the same
time as the people arrive.
That's when we were going to
put them out. We were told
that they would be safe there.
It was totally impossible to see
the parade.

WEEKEND EDITION DECEMBER 10, 2011


Council must let next city manager lead


My guess is Venice will
not have a long-term city
manager unless a new
council majority emerges
that is willing to accept
that the city manager is
the CEO of the city, and
council is not hands-on
management, issuing
orders, directly commu-
nicating and influencing
staff, who often are afraid
of job recriminations if
they are not responsive
to council members.
To date, four relatively
local candidates have
been identified for the
position, including Act-
ing City Manager Nancy


Woodley and Assistant
North Port City Manager
Daniel Schult. The other
two candidates men-
tioned do not hold city
manager positions. Other
persons to be inter-
viewed are expected to
be recommended by the
Slavin search firm in the
near future.
Most readers will
remember that Council
Member Bob Daniels,
accompanied by former
Mayor Dean Calamaras
and former Council
Member Earl Midlam,
paid an evening visit to
then City Manager Isaac
Turner, and urged him
to resign. They were not
authorized by council
or the mayor. Daniels
eventually got the sup-
port of newly elected
Member Jeanette Gates
and of Emilio Carlesimo,
who four months earlier
had not given Turner any
unsatisfactory ratings


on his annual evalu-
ation. Members John
Moore, Kit McKeon and
Jim Bennett supported
Turner staying in his
post. Mayor John Holic
deliberated visibly before
providing a supporting
vote for Turner. However,
faced with that council
split, Turner asked the
mayor to change his vote
and pave the way for his
separation.
The unprecedented
intrusion into the pro-
cess called for by the city
charter dismayed many
citizens and drew sharp
criticism. It did not,
however, deter Daniels,
Carlesimo and Gates
from further mischief.
They promptly defied
the mayor's suggestion
to appoint Assistant City
Manager Woodley to the
post for the next couple
of years, to re-establish
stability. With five votes
necessary to confirm the


mayor's appointment of
Woodley, the potential
fifth vote, Carlesimo,
waffled, suggesting he
was changing his mind,
then supported Daniels
and Gates. That brings us
to the Slavin search firm.
This morning I read
that Council Member
Daniels, had spoken
directly to Mr. Slavin,
who is charged with
securing several top
candidates for council
to interview. Based on
my understanding of the
city charter, such in-
volvement should be the
responsibility of the city
manager or the director
of administration. Even
the mayor might be ex-
pected to remain in the
policy-making role that
is shared with council,
unless, jointly acting with
the city manager and
council, the mayor has a
clearly defined role in the
negotiations.


For example, Mayor
Holic met with the FAA, as
did I as mayor, with a clear
authorization to be part of
a negotiation along with
the city manager and staff.
Other council members
were not expected to call
up the FAA on their own,
or the search firm, for that
matter.
Given this background,
the city will be lucky to
interest a top-flight can-
didate. In this economic
climate there will be peo-
ple looking for jobs, of
course, and an excellent
candidate may surface
from outside to round
out the slate. Many read-
ers have held responsible
positions in business.
Ask yourselves how you
might feel about taking a
job where you will be at
the mercy of people with
this track record.
City managers and
other top municipal
managers are generally


confident people who
have had successful
careers, notwithstanding
the primary reason city
managers leave or lose
jobs because people
such as ours in Venice
have been elected and
force them out, one way
or another. Still, a good
candidate might have
that optimistic spirit that
has led to success in the
past, and be willing to
take a chance. Good luck
to that person and to
Venice, because it is the
citizens who suffer when
a city manager cannot
fulfill his or her duties
without interference,
second-guessing, criti-
cism, etc. all of which we
have witnessed here in
the last year or so.

I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


It's about the cats

Editor:
Adopting a pet is not
the same as shopping for
an item and concluding
the transaction with, "I'll
take that one."
A young person who
comes into St. Francis
Animal Rescue to adopt
a cat or kitten is asked to
provide proof of parental
permission or proof of
adequate employment
to cover the expenses of
owning a pet. A renter
who comes in to adopt is
asked to provide proof that
the landlord approves. A
mature adult who comes
in is asked to provide
proof that he or she will
provide care for the ani-
mal to be adopted in case
the pet outlives them (cats
can live 15-20 years).
This is not discrimina-
tion; this is the reality of
the abandoned and sur-
rendered animals seen
daily coming into animal
shelters across the coun-
try and Sarasota County.
This year alone, S.EA.R.
took in 51 "returns" due
to economic hardship,
family members who
were unable to take care
of the adopted cat that
belonged to "mom, dad,
grandma," etc., and fam-
ily lifestyle changes.
There are additional
considerations for kit-
tens. Kittens are active
and often keep you from
sleeping. They have sharp
claws that can damage
skin and possessions if not
trimmed regularly. They
get into places that are
hard to reach. They need
lots of training and super-
vision to help them adjust
to life in a home. They are
underfoot and trip you.
Kittens are adorable,
but can be challenging
to manage, especially for
older adults. With these
reasons in mind, Purina
works with shelters and
pays adoption fees for
senior cats (7 and older)
that are adopted by
adults 65 and older.
Pets are wonderful.
S.EA.R. works hard to
have our cats and kittens
go to homes where a
stable environment cur-
rently exists and shows
promise of staying that
way so these animals
don't end up homeless,
back at a shelter or dead.
Lily Caswell was not
denied a pet. Ms. Caswell
was not allowed to adopt
a kitten that wasn't ap-
propriate for her circum-
stances. Decisions on
pet adoptions are always
about what is in the best
interests of the animal; it
was not about Ms. Cas-
well. This is not discrimi-
nation; it is responsible
adoption.
Please come to S.EA.R.
and work with our vol-
unteers to adopt a cat
or kitten that is a good


fit for your lifestyle and
situation.

St. Francis Animal
Rescue volunteer
Coyotes are all over
Editor:
I just read your article
about coyotes in Venice.
We also have problem
down here in Englewood
in the Manasota area.
I see adult coyotes late


at night and early in the
morning on my property.
They have also eaten
many of my chickens.
I called Fish and Wildlife
to see what I can do, as I
have small children, and
was told that they are na-
tive to our area and I have
to learn how to deal with
it. My sister is a nurse and
has a patient in Overbrook
Gardens and her pet was
found half eaten.
I have lived on my


property for more than
six years and this is the
first year that I have seen
them or had a problem
with them. The ones we
have seen are as big as a
German shepherd. I fear
the problem is getting
worse and we will have
situation like California
on our hands soon if this
is ignored much longer.

BOYS BASKETBALL
RIVERVIEW RIPS VENICE: The
look on Venice coach James Slaton's
face afterward said it all.
The second-year coach was not
happy with his team's performance
following a 77-44 loss to Riverview
Wednesday at Venice High.
The Rams (2-1) outscored the
Indians 43-15 in the second half to
blow open a close game.
"It's disappointing,"said Slaton.
"At home we felt we had a chance to
compete with them. To go get beat
like that at the end is disappointing.
.. Their guys made plays when
they had to. Even though we were
keeping it close for probably the first
two-thirds of the game, we weren't
playing really well. We were giving
them easy shots, second shots and
shots at the rim:'
Venice fell behind 9-3 in the
first two minutes of the game but
battled back on the strength of
Devin Cruz-Klein, who scored seven
of his 13 points in the first quarter.
The Indians pulled within 14-10
only to trail 20-11 after one quarter.
Riverview went in front by 14
points before Venice battled back
thanks to the shooting of junior
Chris Hann, who scored all of his 14
points in the second quarter.
Venice outscored the Rams
18-14 in the second quarter, and
a three-point play by Hann with
35.3 seconds had the Indians trailing
34-29 at halftime.
"We happened to make a few
shots, that's why we were staying
in it," said Slaton."It was kind of
fool's gold because when we weren't
making shots and started turning
it over a little bit, we were done.
We could not bear down and keep
them in front of us and get a stop. I
was disappointed in our defensive
intensity. Our ability to rebound on
both ends of the floor was extremely
poor."
Riverview had a 31-17 edge in
rebounding.
"I am going to take blame for
that and we are going to fix it," said
Slaton."We are big enough and
strong enough. We should be able to
compete on the boards and compete
on the defensive end. At times it
was like a bullfight out there, like
'Ole'and let them go the basket. No
one would step in and stop them."
A foul shot by Zach Flerlage with
7:36 left in the third quarter pulled
Venice within, 34-30, but that
would be the closest.
Riverview went on a 12-3 scoring
run for a 46-33 cushion.
The Rams had four players score
in double figures, including 20 by
Tyreek Lang and 18 from Jeremy
Jones.
Venice scored eight points in the
final three minutes of the quarter to
trail 52-41 after three quarters.
The Rams opened the fourth
quarter with a 15-0 scoring barrage
to bolt out to a 67-41 advantage.
"They have a very good team,"
said Slaton."Probably one of the


best teams up and down the coast.
We made them look a whole lot
better than they were, especially at
the end of third and fourth quarter.

Mooney edges Venice

64-57 loss.

SPORTS EDITOR

Execution in crunch time cost
Venice a victory as Cardinal
Mooney sank two 3-pointers in
the fourth quarter to hand the
Indians a 64-57 loss Friday night
at Venice High.
Ahead 52-50 with 6:47 left
in the fourth quarter, Cardinal
Mooney's Antonio Blakeney and
Dylan Blakeley sank consecutive
3-pointers to put the Cougars
ahead 56-52 with 5:31 left.
"The difference was execution
down the stretch," said Venice
coach James Slaton. "We missed
a couple of assignments on
defense and gave an open look
to one of their better players.
We go down (the court) and
made a bad decision with the
ball. We come back and make
another defensive mistake. We
were going to try and cut them
off (the two three-point shoot-
ers). One time it was a mental
lapse and we leave him and
the other time we switched off
when we shouldn't have. Two
execution errors and we give up
consecutive threes. Those are
back breakers when the game is
close."
Mooney (6-1) added another
layup with 5:08 remaining for a
six-point cushion, 58-52.
A layup by Zach Flerlage with
3:38 left had the Indians trailing,
58-54, but Venice was forced to
foul in the closing minutes.
"They have good ball han-
dlers, good passers, good shoot-
ers, so when you get down it
makes it tough because we are
having to scramble," said Slaton.
"We put them on the line and
I don't think they missed a free
throw down the stretch."
Mooney junior Jamie Glasser,


who led the Cougars with 20
points, went 6-for-6 from the
free throw line in the final
1:29 to seal the victory for the
Cougars.
"We've got to get better at
execution when it's winning
time," said Slaton. "We played
hard enough and good enough
to win but we didn't execute well
enough down to stretch to win."
In the first quarter, the teams
went back and fourth. A jumper
in the paint by Flerlage, who
paced Venice with 20 points,
give the Indians a 18-17 lead
after one quarter.
Flerlage and senior David
Voigt combined for 13 of the 18
points.
Mooney outscored Venice
17-10 in the second quarter to
take a 34-28 halftime lead.
The Cougars stretched the
lead to 46-35 with 3:31 left in
the third quarter before Venice
rallied.
The Indians (2-3) battled back
on the strength of junior Chris
Hann, who scored 11 of the final
13 points of the quarter. His
layup with 11.6 seconds remain-
ing pulled Venice within, 50-48,
after three quarters.
Hann ended with 18 points.
"We challenged them really
hard in practice and in a time-
out," said Slaton about coming
back. "We said the bottom line
is you have to battle. You have to
fight and make things happen.
Sometimes I think we've got
in the habit of watching other
guys play. You have to attack
instead of waiting to see what
happened."
Venice plays at Braden River
on Tuesday in a Class 7A-District
11 game.

HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL



Longhi commits to LSU


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

When Venice High's
Nick Longhi was in first
grade, his grandfather,
Edward Zahand, gave
him his first baseball
glove.
It's been nothing but
baseball ever since for
the 16-year-old.
The 6-foot-2, 200
pound junior will get
a chance to play at the
collegiate level after
committing to Division I
Louisiana State Univer-
sity last week.
"Fact: LSU has a great
baseball program," said
Longhi. "Take baseball
out of it and it's where
you are going to be the
happiest. I see myself as a
Louisiana kind of guy -
T-shirt, jeans and hang-
ing out with my friends."
Venice High head
coach Craig Faulkner and
former Venice players
Mark Guthrie and Jack
Voigt all played baseball
at LSU.
"My parents would
only let me take one
out-of-state visit," said
Longhi. "Coach Faulkner
and Coach Guthrie told
me that I had to go to
LSU and I fell in love
with it. Even Coach (Jose)
Velez, the hitting coach,
told me to go there."
"When you see the
facility at LSU, it is im-
pressive," said Faulkner.
"They love sports there.
It's a really fun place to
play and be competitive.
It's a top-notch program."
LSU has appeared in 15
College World Series in
the last 24 years, winning
six national titles since
1991 and its most recent


one in 2009. The Tigers
have also won 15 South-
east Conference titles and
had 10 50-win seasons.
Last year, the Tigers
finished with a 36-20
record and were 13-17 in
the SEC.
Over the last 10 years
LSU has a 421-213-3
overall record and 165
wins in the SEC.
"The facilities were
ridiculous," said Longhi.
"They were amazing. All
the coaches made me feel
at home and it was like a
family."
Longhi also had offers
from the University of
Miami and Florida State
University.
"I did like Miami,"
Longhi. "In decision time,
it was close. The campus
and people around there.
Baseball programs are
pretty much the same
but as far as atmosphere,
they were completely dif-
ferent."
In total, Longhi re-
ceived letters from 72
colleges such as Univer-
sity of Central Florida,
North Carolina, Clemson,
Auburn, Texas, Georgia
Tech, Cornell, Harvard,
Maryland, Wake Forest,
North Carolina State and
Brown.
Longhi still has two
more years of high school
ahead of him.
"I think the big reason
to do it now is it's more
for the colleges," said
Longhi. "The kids don't
get anything different
out of it (committing
early) but everyone is
trying to get the edge in
recruiting. I could have
thought about it more
and dragged it out two
more weeks but it's not


fair to the programs as
that would have delayed
their recruiting. Better to
make the decision now so
they can go onto the next
player."
Longhi said making the
decision now takes a little
bit of pressure off him.
As a freshman, Longhi
was called up to varsity
and played sparingly for
half of the season.
Last year, Longhi, who
played first base and out-
field, led the Indians with
a .464 batting average. In
27 games, he hit six home
runs, nine doubles and a
team-high 30 RBI.
"He's only got bet-
ter and better," said
Faulkner. "He's going to
be a very impressive hit-
ter his junior and senior
years. He has great hands
and bat speed. He's got
what it takes to be a
high Division I player.
He's a very hard worker.
He's in the weight room
constantly and throwing
bullpen. He's got a strong
focus on being the best
player and he has great
tools to go with it. He is
also a great student in
the classroom. Nick is
complete package."


Longhi carries a 3.7
GPA.
Longhi started playing
baseball as a 4-year-old
in T-ball.
"My dad was a golfer
and he put a golf club in
my hand," said Longhi.
However, the glove he
received from his grand-
father is what stuck.
"Every since then I just
wanted to play baseball,"
said Longhi.
Longhi enjoys the game
since "no two days or
games are the same."
"Always different," said
Longhi. "One day you are
doing bad, then the next
day you can be a hero
or win a championship
game. Always keeps you
coming back. You have
the disappointment of
losing a game by a run, it
fuels you to get back and
win that next one."
Longhi, who plays
first base, outfield and
pitcher, thinks he will be
used mainly at first base.
"I might do a little bit
of pitching as relief pitch-
er," said Longhi. "I'm not
opposed to anything. I
will do anything anybody
tells me to do."
"Even though we

way, he has a lot of po-
tential on the mound,"
said Faulkner. "He's upper
80s (mph) from the left-
hand side. It played a role
in them (LSU) getting
him."
According to Longhi,
he hit 90 mph on the
radar gun this year.

GIRLS BASKETBALL CLASS 7A-DISTRICT 11




Sarasota too much for Venice


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

For 16 minutes, Venice coach
John Flynn was happy with his
team's play.
However, the next 16 were
another story as unbeaten
Sarasota outscored the Lady
Indians 43-18 in the second
half en route to a 67-31 victory
Thursday night in a Class 7A-
District 11 game at Venice High.
"For the first 16 minutes of
the basketball game we were
alive," said Flynn. "We're play-
ing and executing some stuff
that we are trying to do. All of
a sudden we allowed them to
get us off the train. All of sud-
den they start picking away.
Next thing you know they start
panicking, age starts show-
ing. Missed shots and didn't
get a lot of good looks at the
basket."
At times Venice has three
freshmen on the court.
Venice was competitive
against the Lady Sailors (8-0
overall, 2-0 district) for nearly
14 minutes as the Lady Indians
only trailed 16-13 with 2:21 left
in the second quarter.
However, Sarasota, which
has seven seniors, including


tour starters, closed out the
quarter with an 8-0 scoring
run to take a 24-13 lead.
To open the third quar-
ter, the Lady Indians' Marie
Armato Barrone scored on a
three-point play to get Venice
within 24-16.
Sarasota then went on an-
other 8-0 streak to grab a 32-16
cushion.
Venice trailed by 13 points,
40-27, with 1:34 left in the
third quarter before Sarasota's
Marissa Mangin came off the
bench and sank two 3-point-
ers in the final 20 seconds for a
46-27 lead.
In a three-minute span in
the fourth quarter the Lady
Sailors outscored the Lady
Indians 15-0 to bolt out to a
63-29 lead. Four of the seven
baskets during the run came
off Venice turnovers.
The Lady Indians committed
nine turnovers in the fourth
quarter and were outscored
21-4.
"We have these mental
lapses," said Flynn. "We are
really young in key spots and
it shows. In those situations it
shows. We are going to learn.
It's an exercise in patience.
They are trying so hard and


practice so hard. They are
making some bad, silly and
immature mistakes. It can't be
a (Laura) Hackett show every
night. Someone else has to
show up."
Hackett, who entered the
game averaging 19.8 points per
game, was held to 14 points.
She finished with 13 rebounds.
Venice fell behind 5-0 in the
three minutes of the opening
quarter. Venice didn't score its
first points until 4:12 left on a
layup by Barrone.
The Lady Indians (3-5 over-
all, 1-1 district) only trailed 7-5
after one quarter. But for three
missed foul shots Venice would
have led.
"Absolutely. It was a win,"
said Flynn about the first
quarter. "Now we are down to
three quarters (to play). We got
one (quarter), now get the next
one."
The Lady Indians stayed
with Sarasota for much of the
second quarter and were be-
hind 16-13 with 2:21 left before
halftime.
However, turnovers at the
end of the quarter cost Venice
as Sarasota went in front 24-13
at halftime.
This was Venice's first game


against former teammate Juli-
ana Cavallaro, who transferred
to Sarasota High after spending
three years and scoring 1,484
career points at Venice High.
"We practiced a couple of
different defenses against
her," said Flynn. "She really
wasn't that much of an issue.
Internally, everybody knew
the score. I tried not to make it
bigger than it was. I tried not
to make a big deal about it."
Venice limited Cavallaro to
13 points and Sarasota's other
guard, Kelly Jutras, to just four
points.
"What I told the kids yes-
terday in practice is, I said, 'I
don't want those two to beat
us.' I can live with us being
competitive with them and
having other people beat us in-
stead of those two," said Flynn.
Sarasota also got double-
digit scoring from Mariah
Williams, who scored seven of
her team-high 15 points in the
fourth quarter, and 10 points
from Tarayn Burns.

Building destroyed by fire


FROM ABC 7
State and county fire
officials are investigat-
ing a fire at an auto body
repair shop on James
Street in Venice, just north
of Center Road and east
of South U.S. 41 Bypass.
It happened around
7 a.m. and first responders
were on the scene within
seven minutes. At least
45 firefighters started a
defensive attack from the
outside of the auto body
and cabinet shops.
An assistant chief


said they did not have
to worry about search-
and-rescue because of
the time of day. Instead,
firefighters were able to
focus on confining the
fire to make sure it did
not spread to the adja-
cent buildings and then
to extinguish it.
No one was injured.
There is no estimate of
the damages to the two
buildings at this time,
but they appear to be
destroyed. A number of
cars for sale in front of the
building were damaged


by fire or smoke as well.
South U.S. 41 Bypass
between Center Road
and East Venice Avenue
was closed to traffic
while firefighters put out
the blaze. Smoke was
present throughout a
wide area for most of the
morning.
The state fire marshal's
office was on scene
Wednesday after-
noon continuing the

Clinics: Inventories of pain medications running low


By JEN WULF
STAFF WRITER
New state and local pill
mill regulations may be
preventing some legal
clients from getting the
medications they need,
say local pain clinic
operators.
In the months since
the state passed a pain
medication law and Sara-
sota and Charlotte coun-
ties passed an ordinance,
prescribers say patients
are facing shortages
when they go to get their
prescriptions filled.
"It's cruel and unusual
punishment, and it's
absurd," said Paul Sloan
of Venice, president of the
Florida Society of Pain
Management Providers.
"There's no shortage of
these drugs nationally;
it's strictly being done to
Floridians."
Sloan said the short-
ages reached "crisis
point" a few months ago
and in the last month, it's
"gotten critical."
Dr. Lian Jen, a local
pain management


physician, said some of
his patients had trouble
getting oxycodone in
particular, but did not
call the situation critical.
"The oxycodones are
harder to fill right now
because of the state and
political forces on it," Jen
said.
Jen helped draft the
Charlotte County pill mill
ordinance in September.
He said manufacturers
are trying to make the
pill harder to abuse, and
a new version cannot be
easily crushed.
There are also a few
less-addictive alterna-
tives to oxycodone with
a similar effect, though
they also are hard to get
and expensive since they
are not yet available in
generic form.
Gov. Rick Scott signed
a prescription drug bill
into law in June 2011
that, among other things,
holds pharmacists
accountable when they
fill a bogus script. Jen
said this likely has scared
some pharmacies into
limiting their supply.

A CVS pharmacy
spokesman said the
shortages were not just
restricted to pain medi-
cations, saying the Food
and Drug Administration
reported drug shortages


in 2010 and 2011. Robert
Elfinger, spokesman for
Walgreens pharmacy,
said, "We allow our
pharmacists to use their
professional judgment"
when filling prescriptions.


Jen is optimistic and
plans to switch as many
of his oxycodone patients
as possible onto different
drugs.
"I think it's all for the
best in the long run," he


said. "Oxycodone's a great
drug, but it gets people
in trouble because there
are people out there who
want to steal this, sell it."

TRAVEL 6B


Looking ahead and back


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Dec. 13 and 16 are sig-
nificant dates for Venice.
Both are tied to history.
The first date concerns
the impact of Venice on
an event significant in the
nation's history. A book
relating to that aspect of
Venice history will kick
off the newest festival in a
city known as much for its
festivals as for its history
and its fossil shark teeth.
The second date marks
the beginning of the
yearlong 85th anniversary
celebration of the city's
incorporation.
Dec. 13, the newly
formed Venice Arts and
Literary Society will hold
its first event, featuring
former Florida governor
and three-term U.S. Sen.
Bob Graham talking about
his new novel, "Keys to
the Kingdom," at Venetian
Golf & River Club. The
book, which Graham says
is "40 percent factual"
focuses on events lead-
ing up to Sept. 11, a day
forever linked to Venice
because two of the terror-
ist pilots trained here for
their horrific mission.
Although a work of fic-
tion, Graham's book draws
heavily from the real-life
events that inspired him to
write the novel, a political
thriller.
In the book, retired
U.S. Senator John Billing-
ton, co-chair of the 9/11
Congressional Inquiry
Commission, suggests
that the Kingdom of Saudi
Arabia not only backed
the terrorist plot but may
aid and abet future attacks
on the U.S., and further,
that the administration is
keeping the answers from
the American people. Just
two weeks after all these
comments and sugges-
tions appear in The New
York Times, Billington is
murdered.
Soon, an ex-Special
Forces agent, Tony Ramos,
is running for his own life,
when, armed with infor-
mation given to him by
Billington, he works with
Billington's daughter to
solve the murder. That he
also is trying to learn more
about the administration's
hidden agendas puts him
in peril even as it adds to
the layers of intrigue that
fill this book.
Graham drew heavily
on his own experiences as
chair of the Senate Intel-
ligence Committee, plus
18 years in the U.S. Senate
and as a former presiden-
tial candidate. Graham, as
chair of the U.S. Senate's
Intelligence Committee,
voted against going to war
with Iraq. He has said he
was more concerned with
a bin Laden/Saudi con-
spiracy and often speaks
of "ties to the Saudis living

He welcomes questions
and is quite open in his re-
sponses about such issues
and concerns.
At an earlier book sign-
ing at the Sarasota Bames
& Noble, he said readers
could try to figure out
which aspects of the book
were fact-based.
The Dec. 13 event
begins with a reading and
discussion session from
5:30 to 6:30 p.m., followed
by a light buffet with hors
d'oeuvres and a cash bar
from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
The cost of the event is
$20; Society members as
of Dec. 10 attend for free.
Books will be available for

gathering.

The interior of the 4,500-seat Circus Arena features seating that can be raised up out of the way
for large trade shows. The floor, built to hold a herd of circus elephants, circus wagons and other
gear, is said to be more than 14 inches thick and is without a crack after 60 years. It is the goal
of the Circus Arts Foundation to convert the building into a multipurpose civic center at a cost
estimated to be about one-tenth of the cost of new construction.

'Title of Show' is not a mistake


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
"Title of Show" by Jeff
Bowen (music and lyrics)
and Hunter Bell (book) is
a musical about its own
creation.
Two guys, Jeff (Kyle
Luckett) and Hunter
(Kelly Leissler), get to-
gether to create a show
about a show being
created for a New York
theater festival. As the
story unfolds in song with
the assistance of Jeff's
and Hunter's girlfriends,
Susan (Vera Samuels) and
Heidi (Caitlin Longstreet),
it becomes easier to see
how this strange story of a
show within a show is not


so strange as it is strange-
ly true and also fun.
That keyboardist and
musical director Jason
Brenner is on stage with
the cast adds to the fun.
In addition to providing
the musical accompani-
ment, he makes an oc-
casional remark or gives
an occasional look that
embellishes the story.
Four chairs is about as
minimalist as a set can
be and that too works, so
that the musical develops
in the minds of the audi-
ence as it develops on
the bare stage.
Luckett and Leissler
make a great combo for
the show's creators and are
more than ably assisted by


Samuels and Caitlin.
Ultimately "Title of
Show" was accepted
at the festival and then
ran off Broadway, where
Venice Theatre's artistic
director Murray Chase
saw it in 2006. Venice
Theatre's production
is the first community
theater production.
"Everyone was excited
to see this little show
make it," Chase said. "It's
the ultimate American
dream story."
Allan Kollar directed and
Steven Flaa was the chore-
ographer, with costumes
by Nicholas Hartman and
sound by Dorian Boyd..
"Title of Show" plays
through Dec. 18 in the


Pinkterton Theatre atVen-
ice Theatre, 140 W. Tampa
Ave., on the island in
Venice. Tickets are $24-$27
for adults and $12-$15 for
students, general admis-
sion. The show contains
some adult language. For
tickets, visit www.venice
stage.com or call the box
office at 941-488-1115.

The Christmas market in Baden-Baden is open daily through Dec. 26.


Christmas markets make



the holiday extra special


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Some of my fondest
memories of the holidays
were gathered in Euro-
pean Christmas markets.
An email from Baden-
Baden was all I needed to
check the calendar and
see if I could find a long
weekend available.
That is how my daugh-
ter, Heidi, and I expe-
rienced three German
Christmas markets a few
years ago. We headed
over on Thanksgiving,
which gave us one day
at Munich's market and
a second day we spent
with former Gondolier
editor Doug Bolduc, who
now lives in Waldheim.
He met us in Munich and
the three of us took the
train to Waldheim, where
we got into his car for a
tour of Christmas mar-
kets in Garmisch-Parten-
kirchen and Oberammer-
gau plus a visit to an old
monastery at Ettal near
Garmisch.
Every time I decorate
my travel tree (as op-
posed to my Disney tree
or my ice-skating tree)
I look at the ornaments
purchased at those
markets and remember a
special trip, even if it was
very brief.
I really want to go to
Baden-Baden to see
its 100-plus vendors of
Christmas items and
to stroll its park, the
Lichtentaler Allee. Even
though I experienced
plenty of snow last
winter while judging a
skating competition in
Lake Placid, N.Y., there
is something about
German mountains
covered with snow and
little German churches
scattered here and there
along country roads. At
the market, people drink
gliihwein (hot mulled red
wine) and eat sausages,
gingerbread and other
local foods, including re-
ally large fresh pretzels.
The bonus at Baden-
Baden is the city's spas.
It is world famous for its
spas as well as for gour-
met dining, culture and
wellness.
Inspired by the email
from Baden-Baden, I
visited the Internet and
learned that it would be
possible to visit all the
markets in the state of
Baden-Wurttemberg with
a one-day German Rail
Lander Ticket. Such a
ticket is 21 euros for one
person but just 29 euros
for up to five people. I
think this a German
thing. It is the only coun-
try where I have experi-
enced this.
Doug, Heidi and I trav-
eled on one ticket on the
train, and then Heidi and
I used the same ticket
for the return trip that

WEEKEND EDITION DECEMBER 10, 2011


FINE WHINES


Paging Norman Rockwell


By BOB MUDGE
EDITOR

I've told several people
over the last couple of
weeks that if you needed
to educate someone
very quickly about what
Venice is like, all you'd
need to do would be to
play a recording of either
the Holiday Parade or the
Boat Parade. If you have
a better idea, I'd like to
hear it.
I mean, think of it:
Most years the weather
is so nice you can get
by with a windbreaker;
I wore shorts to both
this year. Preparations
for the participants start
weeks in advance, and
for the spectators early
in the week by putting
out chairs and rop-
ing off viewing areas.
People come out hours
in advance to tailgate.
Walking the parade route
you can see everyone
from babies to our old-
est seniors, and all types
of people in between
- and the same folks
participate as well.
Businesses, churches,
schools, nonprofits -
you name it, it's there.
I know that arguments
can be made for the
beach and downtown, for
the Shark's Tooth Festival
and Sun Fiesta, among
other attractions, and I
mean no disrespect to
them; they are major
components of what we
all mean when we laud
Venice for its small town/
hometown feel. But the


parades are Venice in a
nutshell.
Here's my Holiday
Parade experience this
year and every year. I
know the parade will be
just like this next year,
too, and I'll be there again
for that very reason.
Our chairs were just
a little west of city hall.
It's a good viewing spot,
but it was chosen out
of necessity pretty
much all of the rest of
the parade route east of
there had been claimed
by Thursday. I've been
going to or walking in the
parade for about 25 years
and I don't recall there
EVER being this many
chairs out, certainly not
this early. Think about
how easy it would be to
ruin the parade for a lot
of people by stealing or
vandalizing their chairs.
It doesn't happen.
We were planning to
get food from a local
restaurant but it was so
busy no one could even
answer or perhaps
hear the phone. So
we walked over to the
Harbor Drive median,
where a group support-
ing Venice High School
was selling food and
bought some hot dogs.
(We had brought our
own beverages.)
I wandered around
visiting for a little while
and quickly encoun-
tered most of city
council; Police Chief
Tom McNulty and Fire
Chief John Reed; former
council member Dave


Farley handing out his
Santas; parade chair Bob
Hebert; and a bunch
of friends all there for
their annual Christmas
parade fix.
So many of us are
transplants from up
north that it's almost
impossible to get into
the holiday spirit here
without going to the
parade. The change in
seasons, though wel-
come, is too subtle, and
televised parades seem
too remote. If we can't
have (don't want) snow,
we need a parade.
And the parade was
great, with something
for everyone: antique
cars, dancers, bands,
floats, animals, a pirate
ship, fire trucks, boats,
Shriners, two count
'em, two appearances
by Santa. (I wish there
were more bands but I
understand the prob-
lems in getting them to
come.) Beads were flying
(I grabbed a handful
that were about to hit
someone in the head)
and candy was liberally
distributed (experienced
kids brought shopping
bags, like they were trick-
or-treating, only people
brought the candy to
them). It was a fun-filled
two hours.
This is classic Ameri-
cana. It's white picket
fences and baseball and
apple pie and sunsets.
And it's most definitely
Venice. Right?

SUN NEWSPAPERS 7B


Singularly possessive


Every life has its
milestones: the first day
of school, getting your
driver license, meeting
the person you realize
you want to spend the
rest of your life annoying.
A few years ago, I passed
a major life milestone: pur-
chasing, for the very first
time, a box of Christmas
cards in January at
80 percent off. Then, this
year, I passed an even bigger
milestone: the December
when you actually remem-
ber having bought Christ-
mas cards back in January.
If my calculations are
correct, there's just one
more major life milestone
standing between me and
the sweet hereafter: yelling
at neighbor kids to get off
the lawn. But between now
and then, I have some holi-
day cards to write. And, be-
cause you probably do, too,
it seems it's time to once
again talk about flubbed
plurals and possessives on
holiday greeting cards and
how not to flub them.
You're probably famil-
iar with the mistakes I'm
talking about: Happy
holidays from the Gar-
cia's! Merry Christmas
from the Jones'! Welcome
to the Smithses! These er-
rors don't just appear on


Christmas cards. This is
also the time of the year
when people purchase
personalized and en-
graved gifts, like welcome
mats and placards that
announce guests have ar-
rived at the home of "The
Miceli's."
To avoid messing up
family names this way, ask
yourself two questions:
1. Am I talking about more
than one person? 2. Am I
talking about something
owned? If you're talking
about more than one
person, then you're dealing
with the very simple con-
cept of plurals. In English,
plurals of proper names
are very easy to form: For
most, you just add "s." One
Johnson, two Johnsons.
One Meyer, two Meyers.
Mr. Clark, all the Clarks.
Names that end in "s," "z"
or similar sounds confound
some people. But they're
easy, too: Just add "es." One
Jones, two Joneses. One
Gomez, two Gomezes. One
Walsh, two Walshes.
And don't let all the
English language's irregu-
lar plurals scare you. If
you take child and make
it plural, you get children.
But if you're talking about
someone whose name is
Child, the plural is simply
Childs. If berry is a fruit,
its plural is berries. If it's a
person, the brood of Mr.
Berry is simply the Berrys.
When it comes to
names, there are no irreg-
ular plurals no tricks
or curveballs or fancy
special cases. You always
just add "s" or "es."
Notice that the apostro-
phe has no place in these.
Apostrophes don't form


plurals. They form posses-
sives. And if you actually
want to make something
possessive, that's easy
too. To form a possessive
of any name, just add an
apostrophe plus an "s" to
the singular or an apostro-
phe alone to the plural.
So if you're going to the
house of Mr. Clark, just add
apostrophe plus "s": Mr.
Clark's house. If you're go-
ing to the house of Mr. and
Mrs. Clark, you're going
to the home of the Clarks,
which is the Clarks' house.
People can lose all sight
of this when the singular
name ends in "s," but it's
really no more difficult.
The house owned by Mr.
Jones is Mr. Jones's house.
The house owned by the
Joneses is the Joneses'
house. These may look
more confusing, but they
follow the same simple
rules as the Clarks. Just
start with your singular
Jones. Make it plural: Jone-
ses. Then make the plural
possessive by adding just
the apostrophe. True, rules
do allow you to make a
possessive out of the singu-
lar Jones by adding just the
apostrophe: Jones' house.
But it's simpler to do it the
same way as any other pos-
sessive: Jones's house.
So for an embarrass-
ment-free holiday, all
you have to do is keep
these rules in mind, and,
of course, go easy on the
eggnog.

Are you

feeling

empty?

That's good!

"What draws the blood
from the veins, the needle
or the vacuum?" the
Rebbe once asked one of
the doctors who treated
him during his recovery
from two serious heart
attacks.
The doctor explained
that it was due to the
vacuum. On hearing this,
the Rebbe noted, "This
matter caught my atten-
tion previously. A person
came to me and claimed
that he was 'empty' and
unfit for anything. I told
him that the opposite
was true. An empty ves-
sel draws into itself with
added force; he was a ves-
sel for all types of good
and holiness."
Later the Rebbe re-
peated these comments
to a member of his secre-
tariat. Due to his state of
health, the Rebbe would
not be leading the festive
holiday gathering that
customarily took place
at that time. The Rebbe
added, "We see that the
emptiness will draw into
it more forcefully than
something filled would.
At tonight's gathering,
although the 'one who sits
in the chair' [the Rebbe]
will be absent, this should
not dampen the holiday
spirit. On the contrary,
the void will bring all
goodness from Heaven."
The Rebbe then ex-
plained this concept in
Chasidic terms and it was
repeated publicly at the
evening's gathering.
There are times when
we feel "full." We are hap-
py, things are going well,
the sun is shining and
we see clearly that God is
"smiling" on us. But, as
the Rebbe noted, espe-
cially when we are feeling
"empty," that is the most
opportune time to draw
down God's blessings, to
fill up on all types of good
and holiness.

ling is director of Chabad

Again we have two
same make and model
cars, both Pontiac Fire-
birds, however there is
30 years difference in
age. I'll begin the col-
umn with the bright red
1968 convertible owned
by Max Nuebler III, 45,
a native of Sarasota who
often comes down to
Muscle Car City events.
After seeing him and
his girlfriend Audrey


Nuzzo sitting in this
sporty top-down beauty,
I couldn't resist asking
them to be part of a You
Auto Know article. They
happily agreed and Lee
photographed them and
the Pontiac during late
August. It took more
than three months to
find a suitable compari-
son Firebird, thus the
background for how to-
day's story came about.
It seems Max has al-
ways liked automobiles
and acquired a passed-
down 1967 Firebird
that originally was his
uncle's, then his father's,
and finally his at age 16.
That brand stayed in his
mind long after it was
gone, as were many oth-
er vehicles he formerly
owned and sold. Finally,
in 2003, he found his

of last week's article.


dream road automobile,
this 1968
ragtop Firebird. Max
rebuilt it to be a driver,
doing much of the
work himself, including
removing the original
engine and installing
one he personally had
overhauled with a spe-
cial cam, some porting
and relieving the heads,
adding exhaust head-
ers, etc. Recently, to
improve performance,

a five-speed Tremic
transmission replaced
the factory original. He
loves to drive it, so a trip
to Punta Gorda allows
him to relive his youth,
like operating the old
1967 Firebird.
Over the years, Max
has participated in hot
rod tours from Cocoa
Beach to Detroit, Kis-
simmee to Englishtown,
N.J., and as far south
as Key West. I almost
forgot to mention, Max
also successfully drag
races a 1972 Monte
Carlo with a "jazzed-up"
454 engine at Braden-
ton Motor Sports Park,
and Immokalee and
Sunshine drag strips. In
2003, he won division 2
as regional champion in
Jackson, S.C. Speed is a
household word!
For more than 20
years, Max has owned
and worked as a house-

Sarasota County. Audrey
is a treatment coordina-
tor for an orthodontist
in Sarasota. Her hobbies
include one they both
like very much cook-
ing!
Max is very proud of
his only child, Max Nue-
bler IV, 15, a high school
student, more so than
his accomplishments
on the track. It makes
Lee and I happy to know
these people.
Some specifications
of the 1968 Firebird:

production, 16,960;

weight, 3,346 pounds;
engine, V8 400 cubic

The very shiny black
1998 Firebird convertible
is an interesting car with
an unusual past. It's the
property of Port Char-
lotte resident Sharon
Fultz, who inherited
this coveted automobile
Sept. 4, 2010, after her
husband of 26 years Ker-
ry passed away. She was

and speed person, going
back to age 5 sitting on
her daddy's lap during
practice at an oval dirt
track near their home
in Paris, Ind., where he
raced stock cars. The one
she remembers best was
red, white and blue with
double zeros painted on
it. Sometimes she was
allowed to steer, which
was enough to later in
life earn Sharon the title
of "lead foot," which
remains with this spirited
lady even today. Their
family car was a 1957
Ford with a big "hot"
engine. Growing up,
her own first auto was
a Studebaker Hawk, a
vehicle capable of going
fast and handling well.
Apparently this Stude
contributed in helping


Sharon maintain that
speedy nickname.
Sharon is very well
known at the Slip-Not
Lounge and Restaurant at
U.S. 41 South and Henry
Street in Punta Gorda,
where she has been em-
ployed for 18 years doing
most every job there for
the owners Danny and
Barbara Biehl.
After leaving the busi-
ness June 2, 2009, she
and Kerry were on their
way to Pine Island with
Sharon behind the wheel,
when they passed a large
used car lot and suddenly
Kerry shouted, "My car!"
- the "Black-on-Black"
Firebird convertible
really caught his atten-
tion. Within an hour they
traded in her Scion and
proceeded on to their
destination, top-down
and smiling all the way.
This vehicle was some-
thing Kerry had wanted


for years and never
seemed to find. Both en-
joyed driving or riding in
this "bad" machine with
its GM ZI all-aluminum
(block and heads) motor,
the same as used in some
Corvettes per expert Rick
Treworgy, who also says
certain ones came with
a close-ratio six-speed
transmission. No won-
der they loved it then as
Sharon does today. She
told me that wind rush-
ing by her hair, sleeve or
fingers creates a smile of
freedom. Just hearing the
powerful rumble when
starting the engine gives
a special, hard-to-explain
feeling, Sharon said.
You can see these
Firebirds and meet the
owners today during the
Punta Gorda Kiwanis Club
"Trunk-O-Socks" Trophy
(15) Car Show, along
with the Veteran Mo-
tor Car Club of America,


in cooperation with the
Slip-Not folks, located at
1601 Tamiami Trail, Punta
Gorda. Stop by in any year,

pate, bring $5 and some

It's a car nut weekend


By DANNY GAWENDA
SPECIAL TO THE SUN
At 7 a.m. Saturday
car nuts met at Mickey
D's to start the day.
After two hours of "cow
droppings," we went on
our way. I think we are
starting to repeat our-
selves in many subjects,
but I could be mis-
taken. Most of the car
nuts are getting excited
about all the holiday
car shows going on in
the next few weeks.
They just can't wait to
see Santa. I know I have
my list made out.
We were back at
Mickey D's on Sunday,
again at 7 a.m., this
time to plan the drive
to the big Hot Rod
Show in Fort Myers.
Some of us had to go
to Muscle Car City to
pick up our tickets. The
slow, older cars took
U.S. 41 and the newer
cars took 1-75. Guess
what? We almost all
made it there at the
same time. Seems there
was a story about this. I
think it was called "The

It was estimated over
2,000 registered cars
came to the show and
over 1,000 spectators.
For you drag car en-
thusiasts, Don Garlits,
Shirley "Cha-Cha" Mul-
doweny and Chip Foose
were on hand to sign
autographs.
One of the Lug Nut
fans, Joe Mazzio, was
fortunate to be one of
the 100 cars to be in the
Grand Circle of cars in
the Lee County Arena.
Joe had dinner with all
the stars of the show and
got to mingle with them.
His Silver 1957 Caddy
was one of the main at-
tractions of the show. Joe
should be very proud to
have his car in this show.
I met about 20 other
Lug Nut fans at the
show, and they could
not believe the number
of cars that showed up.
I saw a VW bus that
was lowered to 1 inch
off the ground, and
a Hummer that you

Ankle sprains are a

twist of bad luck


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I twisted my ankle playing
basketball, and it's still
swollen and hurts three
weeks later. Shouldn't it be
better by now? I didn't use
crutches. Should I have?
My brother wants me
to ask a question for him.
He has sprained his ankle
three times in the past
year and a half. He'd like
to know what's going on.
- PT.
ANSWER: Ankle sprains
are one of the most com-
mon athletic injuries. A
sprain is an overstretched
or torn ligament. Liga-
ments are straps of dense
fibrous tissue that span
a joint to give it stability.
A grade 1 sprain is one in
which the ligament has
been stretched beyond
its capacity to rebound or
one in which a few fiber
strains have been torn.
This injury usually gets
better within a week or
two. A grade 3 sprain is
one in which the entire
ligament has been torn.
This can take up to six
months to heal. A grade 2
is worse than a grade 1 but
not as bad as a grade 3.
The most common
ankle sprain is one in
which the lateral side
of the ankle (the little-
toe side of the foot) has
ligament damage. When
it happens, a person feels
a tearing sensation and
might hear a pop. The
foot can be moved up
and down only with pain.
Immediate treatment is
rest, icing, compression
with an Ace bandage and
elevation of the leg. Icing
should be done for 15 to
20 minutes four times a
day for the first two or
three days. Aleve, Advil
or one of the many other
related drugs takes care
of pain. Crutches aren't
necessary for grade 1 and
grade 2 sprains. An ankle
brace, a walking boot or
taping keeps the person
mobile and protects the
joint.
Your brother's recurring
ankle sprains indicate his
joint is unstable. He must
see an orthopedic doctor.
If he's experiencing these
strains while playing a
sport, he'd benefit from
using an ankle support.
Tell him to visit Stromgren
Athletics on the Internet
at www.stromgren.com.
He can see pictures of
their many ankle devices.
Model 329 is one that can
keep his ankle supported.
This is only a temporary
measure. Seeing the
orthopedic doctor is the
definitive solution. You
might have to see one,
too, if your ankle isn't bet-
ter in another week.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I've heard that caffeine
improves sports perfor-
mance. How much do you
have to take?
I'm not a regular coffee
drinker. The few times I
tried it, it made me hyper
and my hands shook.
Does that go away once
you get used to it? E.A.
ANSWER: Many studies
have shown that caffeine
is a help in high-intensity
exercises like swimming,
sprint cycling and strength
training.
Two cups of coffee
before exercise reduce fa-
tigue, increase endurance
and facilitate high-energy
outputs like sprinting.
The National Colle-
giate Athletic Association
requires that the caffeine
content of athletes' urine
in their competitions be
less than 15 micrograms
per milliliter. That's the
amount of caffeine from
six to eight cups of coffee.
That's way too much cof-
fee for someone not used
to drinking it.
If you don't like coffee
and it makes you shaky,
you grow accustomed to
the taste and the shaki-
ness goes away. However,
I don't encourage you to
take up coffee for improv-
ing performance. You're
better off training just as
you have been without the
benefit of caffeine.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
How come you never
write about cheerleading?
I am a cheerleader, and
it's demanding exercise.
We practice daily. I believe
cheerleading qualifies as a
sport. S.B.
ANSWER: I haven't
written about it because,
until your letter, I never
had any question sent
to me about it. I'm in
complete agreement with
you. Cheerleading is a
demanding sport that
requires agility, balance,
strength and flexibility.
Write me with a ques-
tion. I'll give you and
cheerleading equal time.
Readers may write to
Dr Donohue or request
an order form of available
health newsletters at PO. Box

Calling out the system


Dear Heloise: I once
called my phone compa-
ny regarding an important
issue. Not ever getting to
speak to a real person, I
hung up in total frustra-
tion. I left home to run
some errands, and I saw a
phone-company service
truck parked in front of a
residence.
Still feeling frustrated,
I pulled over and walked
up to the repairman, and
I politely told him my
situation and asked him if
he had a phone number I
could call without going
through all of this.
He told me it's the
biggest complaint he
gets from customers. He
pulled out a card from
his pocket and wrote the
name and number of a
person in the corporate
office. I thanked him
profusely.
I called the number,
and sure enough, the per-
son he wrote down was
the person who answered.
I told him the issue, and
after 15 minutes, the
problem was resolved! -
Sandra in California
This is in response to a
column about automated
phone systems! Some-
times going straight to the
top, if you can, is the best
solution. Heloise

Blanket hint
Dear Heloise: Years
ago, I read instructions
you had for removing the
wires from an old electric
blanket. Please help! -
Mary A., via email


Hints from Heloise

Mary, this is so easy and
eco-friendly, and it changes
your electric blanket to
a lightweight blanket in
a flash! You need to take
the top and bottom of the
blanket, feel where the
wires end and make a small
cut in the blanket fabric.
Then grab the wires and
very carefully pull them out,
along with the thermostat.
If you need to make the
cut a little bigger to get
the thermostat out, it's no
big deal, because you are
going to finish by sewing
some stitches to close up
the cuts. Now you have a
recycled blanket to use all
year long! Heloise

Permanent parsley
Dear Heloise: To have
green parsley all winter,
remove the leaves from
stems of fresh parsley,
then put in a blender with
a glass of water.
After mixing it in for
about 30 seconds, put it
through a strainer. After it
is drained, put it in a plas-
tic container and freeze.
When you want parsley,
use a fork to scrape out
as much as you need. -

Woman questions future

with unaffectionate man


DEAR ABBY: I am 28 and
have dated my boyfriend
"Dan" for two years. We
have lived together for the
past year. I fell for him the
moment I laid eyes on him
and have always imagined
we would spend the rest of
our lives together.
My problem is Dan
shows me almost no affec-
tion. He doesn't tell me he
loves me unless I say it first;
he never wants to cuddle
next to me or hug me when
he gets home from work.
He insists that he loves me,
and says his lack of de-
monstrativeness is because
he didn't grow up in an af-
fectionate household and it
makes him uncomfortable.
I feel Dan is an adult
and can choose to make
his household our
household one filled
with love and affection.
It's starting to make me
question whether we re-
ally have a future together.
Am I overreacting? NO
HUGS, NO CUDDLES IN
PHILLY
DEAR NO HUGS, NO
CUDDLES: No. You're an
intelligent woman, and
you're asking intelligent
questions. Before making
up your mind about Dan,
make clear to him what
your needs are. Demon-
strate the kind of affection
you need from him, and
see if he's willing to make
the effort. If he's not up to
it, then face it he's not
the man for you. To marry
someone who can't show
love would be for you to live
on an emotional starvation
diet.
DEAR ABBY: I am a car-
ing, loving husband. I enjoy
my time with my wife. I
think about our future a lot
and want our marriage to
last for as long as possible.
I make exercise a priority
in my life, but I can't get
her to understand that she
should, too. I love her for
who she is, but I want her
to be in great health.
I am a very straightfor-
ward person and have told
her in ways she didn't re-
spond well to. She becomes
defensive. How do you tell a
woman she should exercise
without offending her? -
FIT IN AKRON, OHIO


Dear Abby

DEAR FIT: Talk to her
about the couples you
encounter who exercise
together. Tell her how much
it would mean to you if
you could share the activity
together. If your form of
exercise isn't one that works
for her, then find some-
thing you can agree on to
do together.
If that doesn't help, then
you'll have to accept her for
who she is a confirmed
couch potato.
DEAR ABBY: I live in
Japan and love your col-
umn. It is informative and
helps me stay in touch with
America. But I need to get
something off my chest.
I am beyond tired of the
number of women I read
about in your column who
refer to their wedding day
as "my special day." News
flash, ladies: You should
be using the term "OUR
special day"! If you're so
focused on your dress and
hair and any faux pas -
real or imagined your
guests may commit that
you lose focus on the life
you and your husband are
beginning, perhaps you
should buy a pet rather
than get married. ROB
IN TOMAKOMAI
DEAR ROB: Weddings
(and funerals) can bring
out the worst in people
because they are times
when emotion sometimes
trumps common sense.
The majority of American
brides are gracious, polite,
loving and hardworking.
They are also prepared
for the realities that come
after the fairy tale wedding.
(And if they're not, I hear
from them!) Please don't
judge all American brides
by the ones you read about
in my column. The wed-
dings that go smoothly I
don't hear about.


"If a man vow a vow unto the Lord, or swear an oath
to bind his soul with a band; he shall not break his
word, he shall do according to all that proceedeth out
of his mouth."- Numbers 30:2
So many of us have said things that we didn't mean,
and yet have meant a lot of things we said but never
followed through. The Lord will surely keep His prom-
ises to us and we should not take lightly the commit-
ments we made to Him.

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


I HOROSCOPE
ARIES (March 21-April 19).You'll evaluate yourself
and others on the basis of character.This has little to
do with accomplishment, ownership, attractiveness
or popularity.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Although you are
capable of handling surprises well, you prefer not
to have to deal with them. You will be content with
what is presented to you from a familiar stance and
on known territory.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Social events will
catalyze positive movement toward a goal. Once


you tell people exactly the change you are looking
for, the change will happen quickly. You can afford
to be boldly instructive.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Don't worry too much
about what to do. Just pick something you haven't
done before. Your spiritual awareness will be
opened. It's not the activity itself but the novelty of
it that will put you in a fresh state of mind.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You may lose your self-dis-
cipline for moments; impulse control can be tricky.
Preventive measures can be taken, though for
example, staying calm and removing yourself from
stressful situations and obvious triqqers.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You never can know for
sure what people are going through. You'll give
compassion to someone who has had a tough time
lately, whether or not you realize this.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23).You love those you need,
and you need those you love. Your choice to spend
more time at home and with your family will be
rewarded.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You'll have moments
of doubt and even more moments of excitement,
wonder and enjoyment.The key is not to resist any
of the feelings. Float along with them, and see
where they take you.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).You'll experience a
surge of devotion, feelings of loyalty and a willing-
ness to renew your commitments.To love and love
well takes time and patience, and you have plenty
of both.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).You have become
used to feelings of"been there, done that,"and you
crave fresh excitement. You will be inclined to follow
an unpredictable path just to see where it leads.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).You will be mindful to
create healthy bonds and steer away from the kind
of betrayal bonding that comes from two people
connecting in shared resentment of a third person.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You'll find your
company delightful, mostly because you are looking
for that outcome. You have a way of asking the
questions that lead to interesting stories.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY(Dec. 10).You will be rather
driven in the new year. You'll increase your com-
munication and add to your network over the next
seven weeks. An idea you once thought was wildly
unrealistic will come to being because you have
faith and focus with great intensity on the goal.
A special relationship makes your heart glad in
May. Leo and Gemini people adore you.Your lucky
numbers are: 6, 20,40,19 and 38.


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