MPO postpones Bypass widening vote


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

Like a college student who
just completed a difficult final
exam, Venice Mayor John Holic
knew what he needed Monday.
To take a road trip.
Holic isn't reciting lines from
"Animal House." He wants to
educate members of the Sara-
sota/Manatee Metropolitan


Planning Organization, who
voted 10-5 Monday to table for
six weeks a vote to widen U.S.
41 Bypass to six lanes.
"One good thing about
them delaying until January,"
a "totally disappointed" Holic
said after the vote. "We should
rent a bus, put the commis-
sioners on it, right in the
height of season, and we'll take
them down there (to U.S. 41


Bypass) for a ride, during peak
traffic hours, and let them see
what it's like."
Venice City Council and
MPO member Jim Bennett led
the pro-widening charge from
the dais, telling his colleagues
to keep their eye on the ball.
Supporters were this close to
making important progress in
their efforts to get the wid-
ening project on the MPO's


priority list, a critical step for
projects needing state and fed-
eral funding. But the opposi-
tion prevailed.
Total cost for the 2.5-mile
Bypass improvement project
could range from $67 million
to $94 million, depending
on whether segments stay at
four lanes or are widened to
six, whether intersections are
converted to roundabouts and


whether and where Pin-
ebrook Road is widened to
four lanes, to ease some of the
burden the Bypass shoulders.
Ground won't be broken on
the Bypass improvement proj-
ect until after 2014. Some kind
of plan will be implemented,
but what it will look like still is
unknown.

Rodriguez's village site for sale


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

The 240-acre site of Village
on the Trail, in Nokomis, an
urban village to be built along
State Road 681, is for sale.
"In the last couple of
months I have had inquiries
from many national home
builders," said property owner
Henry Rodriguez. "None
wanted the whole property,
only 10 to 20 acres, because of
the skittishness in the market,
but I want to sell the whole
property for someone else to
do."
With a price tag of $25.8 mil-
lion, the land is being mar-
keted by SperryVan Ness of
Sarasota. Available as a whole
or in pieces, Rodriquez owns
180- and 20-acre parcels
approved for residential devel-
opment, priced at $12.9 mil-
lion. Benderson Development


of Sarasota owns 40 acres
approved for 220,000 square
feet of retail and 600 multi-
family rental homes, for sale at
$12.9 million.
No longer a developer, but
an investor, Rodriguez pur-
chased the property in 2005.
He wants to take the funds
from this property to invest in
income-producing property.
It's a timely move because the
economy is recovering.
Known locally as the man
who brought Walmart to
Osprey, six years ago he
announced his intention to
purchase the 230 acres of
undeveloped land bordered
by S.R. 681, the Seminole Gulf
Railroad (now the Legacy
Trail) and the Spanish Lakes
Community on U.S. 41.
His saw his "billion-dollar
baby," originally named Sor-
rento Village, as reminiscent
of the great Italian villages. A


seamless, interactive village
of urban living, it would have
been the largest green devel-
opment in Sarasota County
history.
By 2007 it had been
renamed Village on the Trail,
and he talked about his new
urbanism a compact
community in which people
are encouraged to walk and
socially interact.
Plans were approved to
build more than 1,900 homes
and 220,000 square feet of
commercial and retail space.
The development included
a 10-story office tower, but
Rodriguez feels it is more
likely to be a maximum of
three to five stories. The good
news he said, is that Calusa
Lakes, Mission Valley and
other adjoining communities
will not see the tower because

Justices accept



term-limits case


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

The Florida Supreme Court
on Monday accepted jurisdic-
tion in William Telli vs. Bro-
ward County, the Fourth Dis-
trict Court of Appeals case in
which a panel of judges ruled
that a limit of three terms for
Broward County commission-
ers is constitutional.
How the high court rules in
that case could affect whether
a limit of two terms for com-
missioners remains uncon-
stitutional and unenforceable
in Sarasota County. It's not
known how an active case on
that question, currently in the
12th Circuit Court, could be
affected by the Supreme Court
case, because the facts in the
two cases though similar


- are not identical.
"One could hope that when
the opinion is written, that the
state Supreme Court would
have a good eye on what's
going on statewide," said
former North Port city com-
missioner Vanessa Carusone, a
candidate for County Commis-
sion Seat 5. "Because it's not
just Sarasota County that is
facing this issue."
A provision in the Sara-
sota County Charter ruled
unconstitutional by Circuit
Court Judge Deno Economou
in 2005 makes term limits
unconstitutional for Sarasota
County commissioners. If
the high court upholds the
fourth district's ruling, Jon
Thaxton may have to abandon

LIMITS 112


By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR

City council on Tuesday gave
its blessing to a planned "Rev 3
Triathlon."
The swim-bike-run event
planned for Oct. 26-28, 2012
would attract participants
worldwide, said Jason Puck-
ett, director of sports with
the Sarasota County Sports
Commission.
He expects 1,000-1,500
participants, and an economic
impact of $1 million through-
out Sarasota and Charlotte
counties.
Organizers gave some assur-
ance the event will not severely
impact two other local races
also planned for that weekend
- a Casey Key 5K run and a
local Longboat Key triathlon.
Organizers say the Venice
triathlon would be a season
closing event with televised
coverage, culminating in a
$75,000 purse for the world's
best triathlete.
Puckett gave Pam Johnson,
city marketing and commu-
nications officer, credit for
suggesting the Venice loca-
tion after it came up against


logistical conflicts in the Sara-
sota area.
The race would start at
Sharky's on the Pier Restau-
rant, beginning with a 1.2 mile
swim. Wellwishers could watch
right from the pier. That would
be followed by the bike race
and end with the 13.1 mile
run.
Roughly, the route begins at
Sharky's onto Harbor Drive,
onto Airport Road, turning
south onto U.S. 41, down
onto Shamrock Boulevard,
back onto U.S. 41, down to
Englewood Road/SR 776,
onto Manasota Beach Road,
then back onto McCall Road/
SR 776, up through North
Port, onto U.S. 41 north, then
detour onto Jacaranda Boule-
vard and back to East Venice
Avenue, bringing the race's end
back on the island.
Revolution 3 Triathlons is
going into its fourth year of
operations. In 2012 it intends
to host events in Costa Rica,
Knoxville, Quassy (Middle-
bury, Conn.), Portland,
Wisconsin, Maine, Cedar
Point (Sandusky, Ohio), South

An attorney for
Englewood Ventures
LLC, the developer of
Gateway Square and
Villas, a proposed
11-acre development
west of State Road 776
and east of Old Engle-
wood Road, has made
a settlement offer to
Sarasota County.
According to the
proposal, if the county
commission agrees to
waive its requirement
that the developer wait
one year before refil-
ing a rezone petition,
Englewood Ventures


will drop its lawsuit.
The county attorney's
office will take the offer
to the commission,
likely in January, after
reviewing it with staff to
determine what recom-
mendation to make to
the board.
Englewood Ventures
took the county to
court earlier this year,
challenging the com-
mission's second denial
of a rezone petition.
That led to a mediation
hearing in September,
after which Englewood
Ventures chose not to
request an evidentiary
hearing. Had it been
held, mediator Gary


Larsen would have
switched roles from
mediator to special
magistrate and
determined whether
Sarasota County com-
missioners unfairly
burdened Englewood
Ventures' use of its
property.
The lawsuit which
includes no monetary
component was put
on hold until conclu-
sion of the mediation
process. A judge told
the two sides to pro-
vide the court a status
report. When they
communicated about
the report this week, the
developer's attorney,


Amy Huber of the
Miami-based Shubin &
Bass law firm, sent the
county the proposed
settlement agreement.
Huber told Pearce
she thought she had
sent him the settlement
offer weeks ago, but he
said he never received
the email. Huber could
not be reached for
comment.
Englewood Ventures
is seeking to rezone the
property from open-use
estate (single-family) to
residential multifam-
ily and planned unit
development. It has
proposed constructing
10,000 square feet of


one-story neighborhood
commercial space, two
5,000-square-foot office
buildings, 14 single-
family townhomes, nine
single-family homes
- similar to adjacent
property in the Pine
Lake subdivision and
a community pool, spa


and deck.
The proposal is not
popular among many
residents of the neigh-
borhood. Plans for the
property have been
discussed for more than
three years.

County, colleges have common goals


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

After arriving in Sarasota
County in 1970, Nora Patterson
had a vision that the commu-
nity should have a full-scale
university. Decades later there
are a number of established
institutions of higher education
here, though not exactly what
Patterson, a longtime Sarasota
city and county commissioner,
still desires.
It was an ambition that she
conceived long before becom-
ing a county commissioner.
"The day I moved here, that's
what I wanted to see, 40 years
ago, in Sarasota County," Pat-
terson said. "I still have that
ambition and any progress we
can make to that will be to the
community good."
With the county commission
hiring a new administrator -
Randall Reid from Alachua


County, home of the University
of Florida, Patterson talked about
whether the commission could
find new ways to help the Uni-
versity of South Florida Sarasota-
Manatee, State College of Florida
and other schools achieve their
own visions for expansion.
"I don't have a dog in this
fight," Reid said, "but I do (like)
the idea of getting people to
collaborate together to create
programs."
Patterson first brought up
the issue about nine years ago
when she and Jon Thaxton
were the only current commis-
sioners then on the board. She
likens expanding universities
to expanding airports: Both are
regional institutions that com-
pete for public use and benefit
from positive relationships with
local governments.
USF, New College of Florida
and Ringling College of Art and
Design are located on U.S. 41


in an underdeveloped area of
North County. SCF is located in
South County, near North Port.
USF also is located in North
Port, and SCF has talked about
having a presence there.
Thaxton referred to a "per-
plexing problem" that Reid may
be able to help solve.
"We have these incredible
schools, all in the same location
(North County), in probably
one of the most needy com-
mercial and residential districts
in the county," Thaxton said.
"I'm not sure that the 'major
university' is attainable, at least
in the short term. But it would
seem to me that in this 'campus
of colleges' ... there's got to be a
way that that can turn into the
major economic driver."
USF's goal in Sarasota is to
continue to work closely with
both counties to admit its first
freshmen in the fall of 2013
"and to become a real economic


driver of the North Trail," USF
Sarasota-Manatee Regional
Chancellor Arthur Guilford
said. "In fact, USF, New Col-
lege and Ringling College of Art
and Design work very closely
together and are trying to create
a cultural, educational corridor."
Guilford said the county gov-
ernment's role "is to continue to
emphasize, in everything that
they do, that they have a com-
prehensive university right here
in their neighborhood, because
our students, our faculty have
absolutely everything avail-
able to them that (USF) Tampa
students have" except freshman
enrollment.
SCF spokeswoman Kathy
Walker said her administra-
tion is "confident that county
leaders will continue to include
SCF at the table in their presen-
tations to companies they are
trying to recruit or help expand,
and in their long-term strategic


planning. As the county grows,
so will SCE"
More than two years ago, local
elected officials met college and
university officials from the area
to discuss the future growth of
higher education in the region.
Attendees stressed the need for
cooperation between educa-
tional institutions, businesses
and government to bring jobs
to the area that would keep stu-
dents living, working and retiring
in the county. But commission-
ers lamented recently the lack of
follow-up after that meeting.
"I think we probably need
to bring that back together,"
Commissioner Christine
Robinson said.
Guilford, who spoke at that
meeting, agreed.
"I just don't think that the
commissioners fully understand
the extent to which we do coop-
erate with one another," he said.

When there are prob-
lems to solve and incom-
ing County Administrator
Randall Reid brings people
together for a solution,
expect him to reserve the
largest room available.
"I've lived my life going
from one room to the
other, and I've ... tried to
say, 'Look, this isn't the way
to do that,'" Reid said. He
calls it "oversegmentation":
the tendency of people to
try to solve problems "in
different rooms in a com-
munity, when they ought
to come together and solve
them together."
Collaboration between
more than just government
agencies is essential, Reid
said.
"I would not only sug-
gest you might cooperate
with other cities, you might
want to cooperate with
civic clubs," he said.
Some people "got away
from that," Reid said, but
as government resources
tightened, the call has gone
out for civic clubs and
faith-based organizations
to provide, for example,
gyms and fields.
In Sarasota County, that
collaboration might be
with community asso-
ciations. The Council of
Neighborhood Associa-
tions Inc., known as CONA,
is a coalition of more
than 70 neighborhoods,
condominium and hom-
eowners associations and
individuals.
CONA moved its annual


meeting
From January
I toFeb. 13
so Reid can
participate.
The topic will
be "Neigh-
borhood
REID Concerns,"
and there
will be an open forum for
CONA members to bring
up issues of interest for the
year.
Reid already has made
some fans among Sarasota
County residents, besides
the commissioners who


hired him.
"Great choice! The ONLY
one who said protect-
ing our natural resources
was important!" someone
posted about Reid on the
Siesta Key Community
Blog.
Community partner-
ships are especially impor-
tant during hard times.
Asked what lesson can be
learned from the hous-
ing-centered economic
downturn, Reid said, "You
need to try to plan wisely.
I don't retreat from this. I
never do. You need to do

Dear Readers,
As we reach the end of the year, we would like to remind
you to take advantage of any dental insurance benefits that
you may have left before they expire.
While treatment is never dictated by insurance, if you have
treatment that you have not scheduled, or are experiencing
any dental concerns at all-now is a great time to come in
before the year is over.
Your dental health is our first priority. In addition to the
dental benefit that you may have, we also offer Care Credit's
healthcare credit card (WAC) to help you manage any
additional costs.
Please give us a call to schedule an appointment or to

that lasts and works, build-

"You've got to have hous-
ing. You've got to have jobs.
That's how communities
work."
Those issues are interde-
pendent, Reid said. "If you
don't have jobs, you don't
have economic opportu-
nity for people, you can't
buy houses."
Reid's career has taken
him from "automotive-
centered" Vandalia, Ohio
(1972-1981), to Green
River, Wyo., a trona (rare


sodium-rich mineral)
mining boom town
(1981-1987). He then
went to Titusville, nea
Kennedy Space Cente
(1987-1994) and Mart

Florida coastal comm
(1994-1999).

solving

In January, Reid moves to
Sarasota County, where
officials are promoting
ir the tourism and stressing
r education and training,
in even as they struggle
east with the decline of home
Lunity construction.
"It's a major industry,
rs, and it's a wonderful indus-
hua try," Reid said of construc-
der- tion. "It's a productive part
f Flor- of the vitality of a commu-
hool nity. But you can't just take
a segment of that. You've
nes- got to try to have that work

More charges for mom accused of bleaching child


The Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office has
filed additional charges
against a
woman
*awaiting
trial for
a :* child abuse.
In Octo-
ber Michelle
Freemen,
FREEMAN 38, 200
FREEMAN block Venice
Palms Blvd., was arrested
for the same kind of drug
possession charges she
faced again this week.
This time, detectives filed
an additional 15 charges
for illegally possessing
methamphetamines, and
three charges of traffick-
ing. Her bond was set at
$50,000.
In July Freemen was
arrested for allegedly
pouring bleach, chlo-
rine and pool "shock"
on her 18-month-old
child to clean him. It
was also alleged that she
abuses her children's
prescriptions.
Freeman's adult son
said his mother was
abusing Adderall, used to
control attention deficit
hyperactivity disorder,
for several months and
her behavior had become
"extremely bizarre."
Photos he provided
showed the family living
in a "filthy and chaotic"
condition. Freeman was
arrested on three counts
of child abuse and
denied bond.
The latest charges

help of the adult son,

County leaders get on the same (Facebook) page


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

County Commissioner
Christine Robinson uses
Facebook and calls it a
valuable tool. Commis-
sioner Jon Thaxton has a
campaign-related page
but uses the social media
outlet reluctantly.
Commissioners "Like"
the county's primary
Facebook page, Sarasota
County Government
Community Connec-
tions, but not the idea of
setting a policy allowing
themselves to establish
individual, business-
related pages to dissemi-
nate county information.
At issue is when a
Facebook message sent
to or from a commis-
sioner becomes a public
record. Even though
they sit on Facebook's
server, commission-
ers' private Facebook
pages still are subject to
Florida's public records
laws, County Attorney
Stephen DeMarsh said.
That means commission-
ers must be careful not to
violate Florida's Govern-
ment-in-the-Sunshine


Law when using them for
private or county busi-
ness, particularly in how
they communicate back
and forth with the public.
"It doesn't matter
where it is (stored), or
how it is," DeMarsh said.
"It matters what the
content of the communi-
cation is and the purpose
of the communication."
During a retreat, staff
made recommendations
about commissioners'
use of personal Facebook
pages. Staff also asked the
board to consider setting
policy on commissioners'
individual use of Face-
book pages for county
business, such as promot-
ing meetings and ribbon-
cuttings they attend.
Sarasota County Com-
munications Director
Crystal Pruitt told com-
missioners that her staff
found that elected officials
in many government
agencies around the state
do not have government-
sponsored Facebook
pages. Staff recommended
against commissioners
maintaining individual,
business-related Facebook
pages. Pruitt said that if

commissioners chose to
have individual county
pages, the county could
link to them, but commis-
sioners would be respon-
sible for maintaining the
content and archive.
Robinson was hoping
board members would
agree to allow such pages.
But her four colleagues
said no.
"I think it's important
for a variety of reasons,"
she said. "It's good for
folks to know about cer-
tain things that they might
not be able to know about,
if we don't" use Facebook.
Commissioner Joe
Barbetta prefers that board
members not get involved
in Facebook professionally.
"It's a risky road," he said,
adding that enough timely
information is posted
through the county's
website (www.scgov.net),
its email system (webmail.
scgov.net) and its Facebook
pages, and the risk to com-
missioners of maintaining
their own professional
Facebook pages is too great.
Commissioner Jon
Thaxton summed up the
majority view by saying,
"We're vulnerable enough


just sitting here and doing
email."

Class action foreclosure suit filed


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

A South County couple has
filed a class action lawsuit
against a Plantation, Fla., law
firm for unfair and deceptive
practices related to foreclo-
sure, and violations of the Fair
Debt Collection Practices Act.
David and Kayleen Keyser, of
North Port, are suing Kahane &
Associates which was repre-
senting their lender, IndyMac
Bank for filing a foreclosure
action based on demand-
ing excessive, unearned fees,
according to the Keysers'
attorney, Elizabeth Boyle of
Sarasota-based Gulfcoast Legal
Services.
Boyle and other attorneys
representing the Keysers


believe more people will come
forward to join the suit against
the law firm after the court
certifies the class.
Boyle said the case is "the first
Florida class action involving a
victim of the dubious practice
of foreclosure mill law firms
demanding excessive, unearned
fees in reinstatement and payoff
letters to homeowners."
Gulfcoast is assisted in the
case by Edelson McGuire, a
nationally known law firm
experienced in consumer
protection and class action
lawsuits. The case was filed
Monday in Sarasota County
circuit court.
The lawsuit challenges "the
practice of a 'foreclosure mill'
and loan service demanding
excessive fees and unearned


fees for transactional costs not
actually incurred at the time
demanded, a practice which
illegally clogs the equity of
redemption of a homeowner
trying to stave off foreclosure
and loss of the family home,
and compounds the damage of
the nationwide foreclosure cri-
sis as law firms and others seek
to extract unearned fees from
foreclosures," Boyle said.
Parts of the Keysers' story
will seem familiar to many
Southwest Florida homeown-
ers. According to Boyle, the
Keysers both work and have
three school-age children. One
parent is a truck driver and the
other works as a grocery store
manager. The Keysers' mort-
gage payments were about
$900 a month.


"They fell a little behind,
when trucking jobs dried up
because of the economy," Boyle
said. "They were told that if they
sent in a check for $3,000 they
would be caught up and avoid
foreclosure. They sent in the
$3,000. At the same time Indy-
Mac Bank, their lender, failed
and was taken over by the U.S.
government. Even though they
had paid as they were told to,
they were sued for foreclosure."
The Keysers continued
to pay their own taxes and
insurance. They entered into
a modification agreement for
mortgage payments of $1,900
per month, up from $900.
"They made payments under
the modification, but the lender
would not send them any
receipts or acknowledgment of


the payments," Boyle said.
The Keysers also are con-
cerned that the value of their
home has decreased to less
than half of the loan amount.
"IndyMac's premature filing
of the foreclosure lawsuit (by
Kahane and Associates) cre-
ated a stigma of foreclosure
on the Keysers' home which
immediately devalued its fair
market value," Boyle said. "This
devaluation of the property, in
turn, lessened the Keysers' abil-
ity to resolve the situation more
favorably. The lender's action
directly impaired the value of
the Keysers' collateral (their
home), thereby reducing their
options to cure."
The Keysers and a spokes-
person for Kahane & Associates
were unavailable for comment.


Business and Reid? Chambers should be 'elated'


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

When Randall Reid and
Joe Catrambone were col-
leagues in Titusville about
25 years ago, they roomed
together for three weeks
during a sister city visit to
China, their wives having
stayed behind.
They became well-
acquainted during the trip.
"You really get to know
somebody when you
room together for 21
days," said Catrambone,
now president and chief
executive officer of the
Stuart/Martin County
Chamber of Commerce.
Catrambone has
known Reid the
Alachua County man-
ager who currently is to
become the next Sara-
sota County administra-
tor since about 1985
and they have worked
together in two cities.
They met when Reid
was the city manager in
Titusville and Catram-
bone ran the chamber
there. When Catrambone
moved to Stuart to man-
age that chamber, and
saw many of the same
dysfunctional qualities in
Martin County govern-
ment that were present
in Titusville, he contacted
Reid and encouraged
him to seek an open
position there. Reid got
the job and served as
deputy/acting Martin
County administrator for
five years before moving
to Gainesville.
As a chamber pro-
fessional for 30 years,
Catrambone said he has
dealt with every kind of
city and county admin-
istrator imaginable, and
Reid "is certainly, if not
the best, in the top two
or three. He will do a fine
job wherever he will go."
Administrators,
Catrambone said, walk
a fine line, working at
the pleasure of commis-
sioners. Catrambone
admires administrators
who voice their opin-
ions, who inform their
boards of the pitfalls or
advantages of decisions
they are considering.
"Randy would be
sure to make his board
aware of the (impact of)


decisions they may make,"
Catrambone said, "where
most county administra-
tors that I have run into,
they just shut up and do
what they are told to do."
Sarasota County busi-
ness owners in general,
and the various area
chambers of commerce
in particular, should be
"elated" at the pos-
sible hiring of Reid,
Catrambone said.
"He has always been
business-oriented,"
Catrambone said. "He
has great history with
chambers of commerce.
He works well with the
business community.
If there are any kinds
of contentious issues
(related to county land
development), he has the
knack to bring both sides
together to at least listen."
Asked what weakness
Reid has, Catrambone
said it's not really a weak-
ness, but Reid "probably
expects too much out of
himself. He'll set a goal
on an issue that is above
and beyond what really is
accomplishable. He'll get
the goal accomplished,
but maybe the T wasn't
dotted to his satisfaction.
But it does not discour-
age him. It probably
makes him work harder."
Reid set a lofty goal for
himself of making 100
presentations at com-
munity meetings when
Alachua County had a
sales tax referendum
called "One Year. One
Cent. One Courthouse."
Reid spoke morning,
noon and night about
the project for 90 days.
"That had the advan-
tage not only of success-
fully passing that refer-
endum but I also went all
over the place and met a
huge number of people,"
Reid said. "Most citizens
may only come into

contact with their govern-
ment directly ... once


every seven years. Then
you encourage them, if


they have a question, to
call or write, and you try


to be open. It's about try-
ing to have relationships."

Tervis plans for even more growth


PHOTO COURTESY OF TERVIS
Kayla and Abby DesJardins and Madison Rankin hold some of the latest Tervis Tumbler designs at
the recent Tervis Tinseltown at the company's Osprey location.


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Tervis Tumbler recently
acquired two vacant lots
at Triple Diamond Com-
merce Plaza close to its
Venice plant.
"They are for potential
future use as the company
continues to grow," said
Kim Livengood, public
relations and events man-
ager. "There are no spe-
cific plans for the property
at the present time."
Completing another
successful year, the
company has steadily
grown, to more than 700


employees an achieve-
ment that must have
seemed far in the future
when the company's then
120 employees moved
to its new $7 million,
55,830)-square-foot plant
at 201 Triple Diamond
Boulevard in October
2005. It was their 46th
year in business, most
of them at their original
plant, 928 South Tamiami
Trail, Osprey, now the
company showroom.
Production has in-
creased with growth, said
Livengood. Currently Ter-
vis is manufacturing 75,000
tumblers daily to meet the


needs of major national
and local retailers, includ-
ing Bed, Bath & Beyond
and Bealls. The inventory
includes more than 500
new designs in production.
She said the company
has completed its 2011
factory expansion project
to provide the capac-
ity increases it antici-
pated. Its commitment
to Sarasota County and
the city of Venice for new
job creation has been ex-
ceeded and it anticipates

Up early to get started on home cooking


If you enjoy home-
made pastries, rolls,
salads and soups, the
new Cormick's Eatery,
200 North Tamiami Trail,
in Hamilton Square, has
those and more.
"I get down here
between three and four
in the morning to pre-
pare and cook every-
thing,' said Jim Long, the
eatery's owner.
He glazes ham, roasts
beef and cooks chick-
ens in the eatery. For
breakfast there are filled
croissants and pastries,
and these offerings are
to be expanded. Lunch is
all home-cooked stuffed
sandwiches with salads
and soup. The menu is
being slowly enlarged to


meet customers' tastes.
Locally roasted coffee,
iced tea and sodas are
available.

York, then returned to the
St. Louis area to work in
private country clubs and
at a public restaurant.
Encouraged by a brother
he returned to construc-
tion until coming with his
wife to Florida where they
fell in love with Venice. He
purchased the location
in January and has taken
almost a year working
with local companies to
get everything up and
running.
"People come in here
and say it smells good,
because I cook it, "said
Long.

SCF, Suncoast Workforce partner up to work on jobs


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

State College of Florida
and Suncoast Workforce
announced a partnership
last week on a project
that officials hope will
result in a better-trained
work force and more
local jobs.
Funded by the U.S.
Department of Labor, the
Engineering, Technology
and Advanced Manu-
facturing grant program
involves SCF, Polk State
College in Lakeland, Tal-
lahassee Community Col-
lege and local work force
agencies as they attempt
to build "work force
development solutions
that can be deployed in
both the education and
training environments,"
according to information
provided by SCE
SCF's portion of the
three-year grant is
$641,237, which will be
used to establish credit
and noncredit courses
and job placement
programs.
"The ETAM project
will further strengthen


the partnership between
Suncoast Workforce and
SCF to train people for
careers in manufacturing
and technology," Glenn
Goonis, SCF manufac-
turing education grants
coordinator and ETAM
project manager, said in
a statement.
SCF's Corporate and
Community Develop-
ment division and Sun-
coast Workforce will offer
noncredit courses to train
workers who currently
are employed, as well as
provide entry-level train-
ing for unemployed and
underemployed work-
ers. Entry-level workers
will have an opportunity
to develop their knowl-
edge and skills, and earn
certifications and col-
lege credits related to
advanced manufacturing.
SCF's Engineering
Technology associate
degree program, which
is based at SCF's South
Venice campus, will
include courses estab-
lished through the grant.
One example of a non-
credit course offered by
SCF is a Manufacturing


Skill Standards Council-
certified production
technician training class,
which according to
SCF prepares stu-
dents to become highly
skilled manufacturing
technicians and to pass
four exams leading to
the MSSC's Certified
Production Technician
certification.
The production techni-
cian training class, called
TBL Manufacturing
Essentials, includes:
Unit 1: Workplace
essentials employ-
ability skills for
manufacturing.
Unit 2: Safety aware-
ness knowledge and
skills needed to maintain
a safe and productive
work environment.
Unit 3: Production
and processes knowl-
edge and skills needed
for the production of
products to meet cus-
tomer needs and busi-
ness requirements.
Unit 4: Maintenance
awareness core knowl-
edge of preventive main-
tenance, and identifica-
tion and performance of


equipment maintenance
used in the production
process.
Unit 5: Quality assur-
ance knowledge and
skills needed to maintain
quality and implement


continuous improvement
processes.
Students who earn the
certification through this
10-week course, which
meets two evenings per
week for four hours each


time, are able to earn up
to 15 college credit hours
toward an SCF associate
degree in engineering
technology.

OUR VIEW



BP fines should go to making Gulf well


What issue could possibly
meld Republican Sen.
Marco Rubio and Demo-
cratic Sen. Bill Nelson in bipartisan
unity?
Florida's two senators have joined
other Gulf Coast legislators in sup-
port of a plan that would take a
significant portion of the federal
fines levied in the wake of the BP
Deepwater Horizon and earmark it
for Gulf restoration projects.
The Restore Act, introduced last
July by the bipartisan group in Con-
gress, would dedicate 80 percent of
all fines against BP, et al., to special
Gulf funds. A lot of money is at stake
- an expected $5 billion to $20 bil-
lion when all is said and done.
That's real money, and real money
is needed to initiate meaningful
programs to improve water quality
in the Gulf.
But there's a problem. Current law
states any penalties received under


the Clean Water Act be sent to the
Treasury. Some in Congress want
to use it for deficit reduction. As a
matter of general principle, some
Republicans have insisted any fed-
eral money taken from the Treasury
be offset by other cuts. Still others
insist the Gulf spill did minimal
damage.
We urge Rubio, Nelson and other
members of Florida's congressional
delegation to find a way to seal the
Gulf deal. Those of us who live along
the coast and rely on high water
quality for recreation and economic
benefits understand its importance.
No matter the exact extent of deg-
radation caused by the BP oil spill,
it seems only right that the Treasury
windfall goes toward programs that
address spill-related problems.
And then there's the long-stand-
ing issue of long-term degrada-
tion. A report released by the U.S.
Department of Agriculture last week


endorsed the use of fines for these
programs. The Gulf Coast Ecosys-
tem Task Force established broad
goals:
Stop the loss of wetlands, bar-
rier islands and beaches. Programs
would deal with beach erosion, pro-
tect reefs and expand water moni-
toring, like the coastal monitoring
done by Mote Marine Laboratory
and the University of South Florida.
Reduce the flow of excess nutri-
ents and pollution from agricultural
and developed land in the vast Gulf
watershed, which comprises roughly
half of the country. This is a huge
long-term problem that threatens
fisheries and has contributed to the
creation of "dead zones" in the Gulf.
Enhance community resilience.
In other words, improve planning
and environmental education in
communities along the coast.
The framework suggested by
the task force is a good one. The


approach would blend state, federal
and local efforts and help steer us
toward an integrated plan of attack.
It recognizes the importance of oil
and gas drilling (90 percent of the
nation's offshore production), the
seafood industry (one-third of the
nation's total), shipping, recreation
and tourism. It notes, "The Gulf
Coast region's economy is highly
intertwined with its natural resource
base."
To have an impact, though, any
strategic plan will need money. The
money will be there, and it should
be used to offset any damage done
by the oil spill and enhance and pre-
serve this resource for the future.
It may be too much to expect a
full 80 percent of fine revenues to
go to the project, but certainly more
than 60 percent.
And in this case, it's not too much
to expect bipartisan cooperation,
even in Washington.


Peace on earth


Peace on earth.
Can you imagine a world
where this is true?
I was thinking about it this
morning and realized my
9-year-old has not ever seen
a time when there was peace
on this planet. Furthermore,
I don't believe my 16- or
23-year-old sons have expe-
rienced peace on the planet
either. Now I am wondering if
there has been peace on earth
in my lifetime. How about you?
How can this planet accom-
plish this daunting goal? In
today's world hostility seems to
break out over just about any-
thing you can imagine. I think
that in a world in which peace
has to be negotiated over and
over again, we as the human
race simply aren't following
the lessons we all were taught
as small children. Things like
sharing your toys. Just think
how much better the world
would be for everyone if we
all shared our knowledge and
wealth without holding out
and leveraging our assets.
My mind quickly goes back
to all the World War II veterans
who woke to tank or gunfire all
around them when Christmas
came instead of waking up to
the sound of children rushing
to presents. I wonder if they
believed there would be peace
on earth ever again.
How about the people who
fought in Korea and Vietnam?
They woke up on Christmas
Day facing weapons much
more powerful than ever
imagined; do you think they
believed there would be peace


on earth after that?
Our current armed forces,
facing weapons, treachery
and acts of violence unheard
of in the history of the world,
will soon be waking to this
type of violence on Christmas
Day 2011. What must be going
through their minds as we
approach the most wonderful
time of the year? Do you think
they believe there will be peace
on earth ever again?
The people who fought in
the wars in our history never
had a choice about who the
enemy was; most of the time
they made the choice to go and
serve. They fought in battles
that had significance in the
course of wars and they fought
in battles that had significant
meaning to them.
Either way, they fought
the battles that needed to
be fought, and I believe they
fought for every inch of ground,
took every round from enemy
ships and flew every mission
into enemy territory because
they did believe there would be
peace, and it was their duty to
ensure it for the future.
Yes, we still are at war today,
and most likely the call will
come again in the future, and
our children or grandchildren
will face the next generation of
weapons that interrupt peace. I
firmly believe that we continue
to have peace within the borders
of our great country because of
past and current sacrifices. The
men and women who made
these sacrifices did so willingly
so our Christmas Day is not
interrupted with the sound of
war, so we in this wonderful
place we call home only know
peace on this and every holiday.
Many thanks to those who
have served and to those who
will stand guard this holiday
season. Our thoughts should
be with those who can't be
home because they protect the
liberty we enjoy.

Muted. Let'em Have It is
great. Do not let the wimps
shut you down. It should be
on the website. I just put new
batteries in my remote and
checked the mute button. I
hear the Obama deluge of
commercials is upon us. God
help us.
Unready. Last week at Venice
Middle School, the musical
was abruptly postponed to
sometime later. This came
after the principal of the
school visited the last rehearsal
before opening night and said
that some of the students
weren't ready, causing the
music teacher to cry, as well as
some of the 70 kids involved
and also parents and grand-
parents involved in transport-
ing them back and forth. The
kids had worked on this for
months. The only explanation
was that the kids weren't ready.
That just sounds shaky to me.
Spending down. There will
be less spending for Christmas
this year at our household here
in Venice.
Surf's up. Venice is on the
Gulf of Mexico. Surfing is a
sport. I never see anything
in your sport section about
surfing. There's a nice com-
munity of surfers that hang out
at the South Jetty. Maybe you
could put something in about
surfing?
Discredited. One of your
staff writers wrote an article in
the Gondolier with a banner
headline "JFK expert: It was
a conspiracy." In it the writer
goes on to explain how this
expert and consultant to the
Oliver Stone movie has got
the Kennedy assassination
all figured out. She probably
doesn't know that the Oliver
Stone movie is badly discred-
ited, and that many people's
opinion is that it is a work of
fiction. Also, a close check
on the web does not show
this so-called JFK expert as a
consultant to the movie, even


Let 'em



















Have It
though on the web it men-
tions three other people who
were consultants to Oliver
Stone to the movie. I imagine
your writer is of an age that
she isn't aware of the fact that
this was a discredited movie. A
follow-up might be a nice way
to handle the thing.
Bright idea. I read in your
paper about the Economic
Development Advisory Board
and city council meeting, and
all the good ideas that they
seem to have about helping
the airport and the commu-
nity. They talked about bring-
ing electricity into the airport
festival grounds and pilots in
for activities there, and how
people are moving around
and suggested electric cars.
I think what they're missing
here is a great opportunity
and that the city is not picking
up on it is a possible federal
grant for putting solar panels
on a city building. The Circus
Arena is sitting there with the
biggest roof in the city fully
exposed to sunlight all day
long. They need help repairing
that roof. The city could put
in for this grant to the federal


government, not costing the
taxpayers any money. The
money is already allocated for
these things. They could repair
the roof and put in a solar
panel generating electricity
for the airport and the festival
grounds and the electric golf
carts, and then everybody
would be happy about it, I
think.
Enough. Well, here we are
again, another fish camp
story. I don't know how many
I've read this year, but I think
I've read enough. Isn't there
anything else that goes on in
the Venice area that deserves
that front page other than the
fish camp? I think it's wonder-
ful these people have all these
fond memories; I've lived here
since 1977. But there are a lot
of other things going on other
than that fish camp. So leave it
alone, maybe for the next five
years.
How's that? How come when
men get caught cheating on
their spouse we then can say,
"I'm all right with my God"?
How does that work?
Hopeful. We are very inter-
ested in having the triathlon
here in Venice. We think it
would be a wonderful asset
to the community and the
businesses.

Openness would start the healing process


C. ROBERT
MILES
GUEST COLUMNIST

As founders and
former members of
the board of the Venice
Foundation and board
members of the Venice
Endowment, Gulf Area
Medical Programs and
Venice Hospital, we have
a vested interest and
concern in the direction
Gulf Coast Community
Foundation is headed.
The recent name
change, although disre-
spectful to the commu-
nity and the heritage of
Venice Hospital and The
Venice Foundation, is not
the main problem with
the foundation.
The Venice Foundation
was funded initially from
the sale of Venice Hospi-
tal and related Gulf Area
Medical Programs prop-
erties and assets, gener-
ating a fund in excess of
$100,000,000 (this fund
was originally known as
The Venice Endowment).
This money was a gift to
the communities served
by the hospital Osprey


to Boca Grande -
for their welfare and
improved standard of
living for people in those
communities.
For 45 years the people
of these communi-
ties supported Venice
Hospital through their
contributions, patronage
and volunteerism. Unfor-
tunately, more and more
of the foundation's assets
are being spent outside
of these communities,
and the intended ben-
eficiaries of the founda-
tion are not benefitting
from these funds as they
should.
Furthermore, the opera-
tional expenses of the
foundation have increased
at an alarming rate over
the last few years. The
foundation's outrageously
high operational expenses
are, for the most part,
being funded out of the
monies intended to go to
the benefit of the persons
living from Osprey to Boca
Grande.
The foundation is an
institution belonging
to these communities
and therefore public in
nature. Being public, it
has a responsibility to


I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


The rich get richer
Editor:
It boggles the mind
that the top 1 percent in
the U.S. has more wealth
than the bottom 90 per-
cent. And the concen-
tration of wealth in the
hands of a select few is
projected to continue.
Since extremely wealthy
people do not need to
spend more than a small
fraction of their income,
their wealth is bound to
increase just from the
effect of interest or invest-
ment return, especially
when the growth from
investment return (inter-
est and dividends) is taxed
hardly at all. Add to that
the access to favorable
regulation and legislation
that the super-rich enjoy,
and one can easily see that
we are headed toward a
plutocracy, where just a
few people have all the
power and wealth and the
rest are barely able to eke
out a subsistence living.
We are far advanced in this
direction already.
This grim future could
change if our legislators
could stand up to the
big money interests and
do not give them unfair
advantage. Unfortunately,
it seems that many in
Congress, especially
Republicans, are more
than willing to legislate
ever more advantages for
the very wealthy, includ-
ing lower income and
estate taxes and minimal
regulation.

Terrence Greenwood
Venice


Arena will rise again
Editor:
In response to the
Let'em Have It line, tear it
down? Absolutely not!
The Venice Circus Arena
has been here since 1960
and has a right to stay. It
is already on the Florida
Master List of historical
resources. The building is
now considered a his-
toric resource in the city
of Venice and is officially
identified as 8SO6739. It
has been here longer than
most of those who would
do away with it.
The arena was built to
seat 5,000 spectators when
the population of Venice
was 2,000 people. John
Ringling North believed
if he built it, "they would
come." And they came
for 30 years, bringing
jobs, cash, entertainment,
fun, chills and thrills and
memories to last a lifetime.
We are not trying to re-
invent the wheel with this
project, but rather build
upon an existing legacy
and an existing arena.
Ninety percent of its use
may be other than circus.
Many of you know of,
and have experienced,
the prosperity the arena
brought to this town. Today
the arena will not only be
used for entertainment,
but for education as well.
We will host conventions
of all sizes; home and auto
shows; antique shows; flea
markets; sporting events
such as ice hockey, ice
skating, roller skating and
basketball; music events
for our community, young
and old. Can you do that


respond to public needs
and public concerns. It
must justify its actions in
an honest and forthright
manner.
The founders and
original board members
made the foundation
a public institution by
asking for volunteer sup-
port and including them
in its operation. But
the current foundation
leadership has chosen
to conduct all opera-
tions in private beneath
a shroud of secrecy. Staff
and board members are
not allowed to discuss
foundation operations
with anyone; only the
CEO can speak about the
foundation. Even worse,
the foundation will not
disclose any detailed
financial information
or allow review of its
financial records to any
person outside of the
inner sanctum.
The founders and
original board were
open, inclusive and
transparent. The current
leadership has become
increasingly secretive
and closed-mouthed.
Attempts by city leaders
to engage the foundation



in the new performing arts
center? This town is big
enough to host two facili-
ties of different functions
and profiles, the arena
being the largest.
We will seek an anchor
circus-themed restaurant
to operate year-round. We
will have a museum and
10,000 square feet of retail
space, with circus flavor,
plus the fully restored
and updated multi-media
arena.
Parking has been
identified within the
entire property between
the arena and the Ital-
ian American Club and
around the arena, like in
the former days. We can
also rent overflow parking
at the airport fairgrounds
site with shuttle buses
bringing people to the
arena grounds. You name
it and it can happen here.
Certainly it is not nice
to boast that we'll have
the largest arena on the
Sun Coast. But it would be
pleasant to have Sarasota
come to Venice for real
entertainment and spend
their dollars here rather
than the other way around.
The type of show we will
attract won't even come to
Sarasota because they don't
have an arena that seats
4,500 to 5,000 spectators.
This time, size does matter.
Cirque du Soleil has already
expressed an initial interest
in possibly considering this
location for winter training.
FSU has expressed interest
in our center for its sum-
mer camp circus program
to complement the camp
going on for decades in

likewise been met with
a stone wall and even
resulted in the founda-

Don't blame the poor

Editor:
In blaming the poor
for their fate, the let-
ter from John Scolaro
demonstrates that some
people are devoid of the
qualities needed to know
when they should be
embarrassed by publicly
proclaiming their selfish,
egotistical ignorance.
Another tragedy is
that there are too many
people equally deluded
with the belief that their
good fortune had noth-
ing to do with the luck of
being born in the right
place and time. Instead,
they'll nod their heads,
like plastic bobblehead
dolls, in agreement with
every misguided phrase
Mr. Scolaro has written.
How can a person
hold himself up with any
esteem, yet be so utterly
missing such qualities as
empathy, compassion
and the realization that
each of us is a product of
the benefit or the horror
of to whom, where and
when we were born? The
writer would rather hold
himself up as a person


boards were made up
of involved civic leaders
from North Port, Engle-
wood, Boca Grande, Ven-
ice, Laurel and Osprey.
Now, the foundation
has a board made up of
primarily North Sara-
sota County residents,
part-time "snowbirds",
persons who have only
lived in this area for a
few years and persons
who have never been
involved in any organiza-
tions in North Port, Boca
Grande, Englewood,
Venice, Laurel or Osprey.
This is a clear indication
of how far afield from the
original mission of the
foundation the current
leadership has taken it.
The intent of the
donors of the original
$100,000,000 Venice
Endowment was clearly
spelled out the money
was to be spent for the
benefit of the people
living in the communi-
ties between Osprey and
Boca Grande, and for no
other purpose. The cur-
rent foundation leader-
ship is not adhering to
the directions of the
original donors; the Ven-
ice Endowment funds


that "earned" and is "en-
titled" to his favored life
and blame those not as
fortunate for their own sad
condition on this earth.
I'd suggest that Mr.
Scolaro open his mind
for once, look and try to
picture himself being born
in a place where children
routinely starve to death,
are of a race or culture
where they never get to
enjoy opportunity or aren't
gifted with the intellect
needed to advance in life.
Mr. Scolaro, have you ever
heard or even understand
the quote, "There, but for
the grace of God, go I"?
Someday, Mr. Scolaro,
you may grow up to a
point where you under-
stand what I'm saying and
will be ashamed of having
blamed poverty and lack of
opportunity on the victims
that those circumstances
have punished.

Driver left
broken heart behind

Editor:
On Friday, Dec. 2, in
the middle of the morn-
ing, my little dog and best
friend, Kita, was struck
and killed by a motorist
driving fast on South Gon-
dola Drive in Venice.
She ran out the door
through a small opening
and as much as I tried
to get her back, she kept
going toward the street. I
was shouting and walking
toward her when the car
hit her, so the driver must


are largely being spent to
support the activities of
the foundation outside of
Osprey to Boca Grande.
The Venice Endow-
ment must be returned
to its donors and used
for its original intended
purpose.
The foundation has lost
the communities' trust
because of the direction
it has taken. This distrust
will continue until the
foundation board mem-
bers understand their
obligation to the commu-
nities it serves. The wedge
between the foundation
and the community will
remain in place until the
foundation takes action
to be open, forthright and
honest and conveys that
feeling to the community.
You have no reason
to hide anything be
open and honest. Then,
perhaps, the fracture will
begin to heal.

have seen me shouting, as
well as her, as she was all
black. It would have been
impossible to not have at
least seen me.
The motorist never
stopped, just kept on
going. There was another
motorist coming by the
same way at the same
time who slowed down
but didn't stop.
They saw me pick her
dead body up and carry it
into the house. Blood was
coming out of her mouth
and head, her tongue was
hanging out and her eyes
were open and glazed
over. Unfortunately, I will
never forget that picture.
It would be nice if the
person who hit her would
at least apologize for not
stopping.
There's nothing that can
be done now, but appar-
ently this isn't the first
time a dog has been hit
and killed on this street.
There are speed bumps in
the road, but that doesn't
stop most motorists from
speeding. My heart and my
parents' hearts are broken
because someone was too
distracted not to see her
or me and then just drove
away. If they didn't see her,
they must have heard and
felt her because she went
right under their tires.
Please, please slow down
on these streets. And if you
happen to see a dog or cat,
or any animal for that mat-
ter, please slow down and
stop if you have to. That
animal is someone's best
friend.

Braden River rallies to tie Venice


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

Venice High coach Gary Bol-
yard stressed the importance
of possessing the ball against
Braden River.
The Lady Indians accom-
plished this in the first 10
minutes but the Lady Pirates
rallied from a 2-0 deficit to force
a 2-2 tie in a Class 4A-District 11
match at Venice High's Powell-
Davis Stadium.
"Highly disappointed," said
Bolyard. "Never been more.
That wasn't our team out there
tonight. You get up 2-0. You have
to finish the game."
Venice (8-2-2) remains un-
beaten in the district with a 7-0-
2 record while the Lady Pirates
(5-4-1) snapped a two-match
district losing streak with the tie.
The Lady Indians controlled
the ball and moved it down the
left wing at the beginning of the
match. Senior Kelly White got a
shot off in the first 20 seconds
but Braden River keeper Kat El-
liott caught it for the save.
On her next shot, White didn't
miss.
In the third minute, senior
Tory Mogford passed it to White,
who pushed the ball into the
far lower corner to give Venice a
quick 1-0 lead.
In the eighth minute, White
limped off the field with a leg
injury and didn't return.
The Lady Indians went in

in the middle of the field in front
of the goal. Kerrigan's shot went
into the lower far corner.


On Braden River's second shot
of the match, the Lady Pirates
found the back of the net. In


the 19th minute, Braden River's
Carly Provan went unmarked
and headed the ball past Venice
keeper Marlee Tyde off a corner
kick by Elizabeth Shirey.
The goal broke a five-match
streak, in which the Lady Indi-
ans didn't allow a goal.
Venice had a few more
chances to score in the first half
as Hannah Clarke's shot hit off
the left post.
The Lady Pirates thought they
tied the match in the 30th min-
ute but a goal was disallowed
because they were offsides on
the direct free kick.
Braden River did end up tying
the match in the 47th minute
on a through ball to Gray, who
scored into left side of the goal.
"They didn't play our game,"
said Bolyard. "They didn't pos-
sess the ball like we possess the
ball. Chalk it up to one of those
games. We did not control the
game. Possession was not there.
It was simple as that."
The Lady Pirates nearly scored
in the 66th minute on another
corner kick but the header sailed
right to Tyde for the save.
Venice outshot Braden
River, 9-4 in the second half but
couldn't get any clean shots on
goal.
"They understand what they
have to come out and do," said
Bolyard. "They have to stay with
it."
Venice will play at Lakewood
Ranch on Thursday in another
district match.

WRESTLING CAPTAIN ARCHER MEMORIAL TOURNAMENT



Johnson is champion; Indians sixth


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

Last year, Venice's Gar-
rett Johnson didn't get
his hand raised at the
Captain Archer Memorial
Tournament.
The senior made sure
this year wasn't a repeat.
In fact, Johnson had
his hand raised four
times as he captured the
195-pound weight class
in the 39th annual tour-
nament on Saturday at
Charlotte High in Punta
Gorda.
Last year, Johnson went
0-2 in the Archer.
"It means a lot to me
because last year I didn't
place at all," said John-
son. "To come in here
and win first, it feels
good."
"We talked about it this
week and how disap-
pointed he was in himself
last year coming here,"

ment Saturday at Charlotte High in Punta Gorda. Johnson
came away with a victory, then three more, to capture the
195-pound weight class.


said Venice coach Dan
Kelly. "The kids he had
beaten at East Lake (Invi-
tational) the week before
were placing. Here he
was sitting in the stands
(last year). He was very
disappointed in himself.


He doesn't accept losing
really well. He wants to
win."
In the championship
match, Johnson scored
a takedown with 31 sec-
onds left in the one-min-
ute overtime to claim a
3-1 overtime victory over
Fort Myers Riverdale's
Treston Dunn.
After a scoreless first
period, Dunn (16-3)
escaped for a 1-0 lead
in the second period. In
the third period, Johnson
(8-1) escaped to tie the
match.
Johnson nearly had
two takedowns in the
first and third periods but
went out of bounds.


A change in strategy
helped Johnson in the
third period and over-
time.
Johnson got under-
neath Dunn's arms for his
underhook and locked
his hands and used a
bear hug to get the take-
down and end the match.
"I just went for it there
in the end," said Johnson.
"It was overtime and I
was going for it."
"Garrett was really
looking for a front head-
lock for the first period,"
said Kelly. "He got it once
and went out of bounds.
In the third period,
caught him with a bear
hug near the end and
immediately saw the guy
was not comfortable, so
the plan changed and he
started looking for a bear
hug instead."
Johnson was little upset
at dictating the match
but not getting anything
for it.
"I am trying to get him
the whole time and he
kept backing up," said
Johnson. "The ref never
gave him stalling. It was
a little disappointing for
three periods when you
are pushing him around
and he never gets stall-
ing."
It all changed in over-
time.
"The ref told him not


to back up anymore, so
when I jacked him up, I
locked it," said Johnson.
"I just stepped in front
and threw him for the
takedown."
Johnson, who has only
been wrestling since his
sophomore year, is the
first Archer champion
since Tony Gonter took
first on Dec. 13, 2008.
The Indians only
brought nine wrestlers to
the tournament and six
placed in the top six as
Venice took sixth place
out of 18 teams with 99
points.
With five champions,
Fort Myers Riverdale
captured the overall team
title for the fourth con-
secutive year, with 225.5
points. Second-place
Naples Palmetto Ridge
had 161 points. Charlotte
and North Port rounded
out the top four with 157
and 138 points, respec-
tively.
Last year, Venice placed
13th as a team.
"Good weekend," said
Kelly. "Venice wrestling
is moving up. I really
believe that. One more
year."
The Indians were miss-
ing wrestlers at 152, 160
and 170 pounds because
of illness or injury and

The controversial
southern portion of
the Bypass is located in
unincorporated Sarasota
County, not the city of
Venice. County commis-
sioners govern land-use
issues there. Last Decem-

Thaxton voted for an
MPO plan that provided


voters approved a limit
of two terms, with the
clock starting for sit-
ting commissioners that

mou ruled the limits
unconstitutional.
Then, after the fourth
district court upheld
term limits in Broward

Sarasota commission-

While North Port City

Monday of delaying the

Commissioners voted
4-1 in November to hold

Santa's helpers work to bring Christmas cheer


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR

Did you know that Santa has
a workshop nearby?
That's right, he does. It's
right on Nippino Trail in
Nokomis.
For several weeks there,
David Sutherlin and his band
of woodworkers have been
making homemade toys for
girls and boys.
They did it as an outreach
program of First Christian
Church to share the joy of
Christmas. The toys were deliv-
ered to several local charities
last week to be handed out
to families in the community
that can use a boost during the
holidays.
Sutherlin has been mak-
ing wooden toys in his
home-based workshop for
about six years. This year he
gathered volunteers from
the church and a few friends


and produced 350 moveable
wooden toys.
The workers made wooden
cradles that rock, and small
cars, airplanes, alligators, dogs
and chickens with wheels. The
chicken even has a wooden
egg inside that flips over when
the chicken rolls along the
floor. The toys are geared for
children ages 3 to 10.
Supplies come from "dump-
ster-diving and 2-by-4-inch
wood donations," Sutherlin
said.
These means only contribute
a portion of what is needed,
so financial donations help.
Sutherlin sells some of the toys
through the church to help off-
set some of the costs of dowel
pins and other supplies.
The finishing touch on the
toys is the T.EC. Toy Builders
brand, which stands for Toys
For Christ. If sent to a Third
World country, it can stand for
Toys For Children.


Making toys for those less
fortunate was Christ-inspired,
according to Sutherlin.
"The biggest testimony the
world has that Jesus came is
Christmas," he said. "Many in
the world want to take him out
of the picture. But Christmas
is his gift to us, and I want to
participate and give to those
who may not have."
The dozen or so volunteers
apparently feel the same way,
for they have been working
for a couple hours nearly
every Friday since Oct. 1 to
complete as many toys as
possible.
The T.EC. Toy Builders toys
will be distributed Dec. 16 at
Laurel Civic Association and
Dec. 19 at Center of Hope at
their annual Christmas parties.
Pregnancy Solutions received
25 toys for its clients, which
will be earned in its Earn While
You Learn parenting program
for expectant mothers. The


rest of the toys went to Toys for
Tots.
Kelly Bender, executive
director of Pregnancy Solu-
tions, said she has seen the
toys and they are "made with
love and with such detail they
are almost heirloom quality."
About 65 toys went to Laurel
Civic Association.
"Handmade toys are really
special," Sandra Sims Terry,
executive director, said. "They
blew me away when I saw
them."
The Rev. Lynette McCleland,
who pastors Center of Hope
church with her husband, the
Rev. Jim McCleland, said she
is happy to be getting a supply
of about 100 handmade toys to
give out through the church's
giving ministry.
"I think the toys are awe-
some, and they are hand-
made in Nokomis," she said.
"We really needed more toys
because we hand out two


toys per child at our annual
Christmas party."
Terri Rouhan, a volunteer at
the Toys for Tots depot, where
the toys are sorted and distrib-
uted, said the organization was
happy to receive these hand-
made toys that were "made
with love."
The band of merry toy build-
ers had so much fun making
the toys, many of them vowed
to continue making them. As
Sutherlin explained it, "We
look back and realize the most
fun we had as children was
Christmas. When we grew up,
we see it's so commercialized.
The real fun is not getting
caught up in those trappings,
and kids do not."
If you want to become a San-
ta's helper and join Sutherlin's
toy-making venture, or if you
want to donate to the cause,

Happy 'challah' days


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Challah, a braided bread
made with eggs, is tradition-
ally served in Jewish homes to
welcome the Sabbath each Fri-
day evening. But any day can
be a challah day and anyone
can learn to make it and braid
it. Sharing the baked loaves
with family and friends is even
better.
That is the idea behind
monthly classes called
"Loaves of Love," led by Rivka
Schmerling at Chabad of
Venice.
Every month, students in
the class will create a batch of
challah dough, braid a challah
to take home and braid and
package a loaf for someone in
need of "A loaf of love."
Performing a "mitzvah," or
good deed, is an important
part of being a Jew.
"Loaves of Love is a way
to share our love and do a


mitzvah," Chabad member
Ronnie Storch said. "There
are many isolated people in
Venice. For someone to bring
them something is a true
mitzvah, an act of love. We give
them something and we ask
nothing in return."
Storch said Chabad hopes
to identify such people and
deliver a loaf of challah to
them each month.
Schmerling, wife of Rabbi
Sholom Schmerling, has
not always been an expert
in the art of challah baking.
She learned "out of neces-
sity" when she and her hus-
band arrived in Venice and
she discovered there was no
kosher bakery. Wanting to keep
a kosher house for her fam-
ily, she called "Bubba," her
grandmother.
Her grandmother told her
to use "a pinch of this" and
"a pinch of that." Eventually
she worked out the recipe and
acquired a "magic mill, which


does the kneading for me."
In the class at Chabad, the
16 or so women present mixed
the ingredients together by
hand and kneaded the dough
until it was the right consis-
tency. They began by stirring
quick-rising yeast into warm
water and sugar. When the
yeast was completely dis-
solved, half the flour was
stirred into the mixture. The
rest of the flour was added
and the kneading began and
continued until the dough was
what Schmerling referred to as
"nice and smooth."
Now an expert in the art of
making challah, Schmerling
also shares the spiritual side
of challah baking. While the
dough was rising, and after a
break for refreshments that
included salads and baked
challah, she spoke to the
students about the religious
aspects of challah to Judaism.
"Baking challah is one of the
three mitzvahs of a woman,"


she said.
The others are the lighting
of the Sabbath candles and
maintaining the purity of the
family.
As the dough was rising
during the class, Schmerling
talked about mitzvahs and
Sarah, who kept a piece of
the challah aside for God and
then was rewarded each time
her husband came home
with guests. Not only was the
challah always fresh, but there
always was enough. Because
of the miracles of Sarah, "the
Jewish people saw that their
sustenance came from God,"
Schmerling said. "Mak-
ing challah is a very godly
experience.
"Before we bake the bread
we take a piece out and burn it
to remind us about mitzvah,"
Schmerling said. "Our body is
here to serve our soul. Chal-
lah represents the basis of all
human needs."
Classes will continue on the


first Thursday of each month
through June 1: Jan. 5, Feb. 2,
March 1, May 3 and June 1.
Classes begin at 7:30 p.m.
There is no class during April
because of Passover.
Anyone is welcome, experi-
enced baker or not. The cost is
$10 per class. A Challah Club
membership is $36. Members
receive an apron and a $2 dis-
count for each class.
Each month students will
learn a new braiding technique
as well as something more
about the history of challah.
Everyone will make a loaf to
give away and one to package
for someone in need of "a loaf
of love."
Chabad of Venice and North
Port is at 2169 South Tamiami
Trail in Venice. To learn more

Watters plays Scrooge for 10th year


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

It would not be Christ-
mas in Venice without
"A Christmas Carol" at
Venice Theatre.
Always special, it is
more so this year for Eric
Watters, who is playing
the role of Scrooge for


the 10th year.
Watters, no Scrooge
in real life, is even more
well-known for his one-
man shows that benefit
the Venice Symphony.
He has created those for
even more years than
he has played Scrooge,
basing each show on the
works of a prolific com-


poser, such as Harry War-
ren, who was the subject
of a recent show.
"Where else can old
folks like me dance and
sing on stage with young
people performing for
the first time?" Watters
said.
Children have grown
up in the show, chang-


ing parts as they outgrow
them while Watters
seemingly never ages.
"This may be my
favorite thing to do each
season," said director
Murray Chase.
This year, the part of
Tiny Tim will be played
by Brodie Henson.
Performances will be


at 7 p.m. Friday, Saturday
and Sunday and at 2 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday.
Tickets are $16 for adults
and $10 for students. Call
the box office at 941-
488-1115 or visit www.
venicestage.com.
Dec. 19, the theater will
present a "Multicultural
Holiday Extravaganza"


and Dec. 20-22, "Sister's
Christmas Catechism" re-
turns. For showtimes and
prices, call the theater or
visit its website.
Venice Theatre is at
140 W Tampa Ave., on
the island in downtown
Venice.

MILESTONES SUN NEWSPAPERS 5B


I MILITARY NEWS
Air Force Airman
Justin C. McKenzie grad-
uated from basic military
training at Lackland Air
Force Base, San Antonio,
Texas.
The airman completed
an intensive, eight-week
program that included
training in military
discipline and studies,
Air Force core values,
physical fitness and basic
warfare principles and
skills.
Airmen who complete
basic training earn four
credits toward an associ-
ate in applied science
degree through the Com-
munity College of the Air
Force.
McKenzie is the
nephew of Deanna Mem-
molo of Warner, N.H.,
and grandson of Sandra
Glover, of Venice, Fla.
He is a 2009 graduate
of Concord High School,

Marine Corps Pfc.
WilliamW. Waltman, son
of Ivy Waltman, of Venice,
Fla., recently completed
12 weeks of basic training
at Marine Corps Recruit
Depot, Parris Island, S.C.,
designed to challenge
new Marine recruits both
physically and mentally.


Waltman and fellow
recruits began their train-
ing at 5 a.m. by running
three miles and per-
forming calisthenics. In
addition to the physical
conditioning program,
Waltman spent numer-
ous hours in classroom
and field assignments
which included learning
first aid, uniform regu-
lations, combat water
survival, marksmanship,
hand-to-hand combat
and assorted weapons
training. They performed
close-order drill and op-
erated as a small infantry
unit during field training.
Waltman and other
recruits also received
instruction on the Ma-
rine Corps' core values
- honor, courage and
commitment, and what
the core values mean in
guiding personal and
professional conduct.
Waltman and fel-
low recruits ended the
training phase with The
Crucible, a 54-hour, team
evolution culminating in
an emotional ceremony
in which recruits are pre-
sented the Marine Corps
Emblem and addressed
as Marines for the first
time in their careers.

FIGHTING
FROM PAGE 4

on the New College of
Florida campus, 5800 Bay
Shore Road, Sarasota.
For Americans, the
iconography of Nazism
is found in the swastika,
the jackboot and the
Nazi banner. But another
symbol flames and
fire accompanied
the Third Reich from its
strident inception to its


apocalyptic demise. The
exhibit focuses on how
a series of book burn-
ings, initiated by Ger-
man university students
May 10, 1933, became a
powerful symbol during
World War II, prompting
counter demonstrations
in New York and other
American cities.
Many American writ-
ers' books were burned
as well, including ones
by Ernest Hemingway,
Upton Sinclair, Helen
Keller and Jack London.


Ironically, among those
books targeted for
destruction were the
works of Jewish poet
Heinrich Heine, who in
1822 penned the pro-
phetic words, "Where
they burn books, they
will, in the end, burn
human beings too."

I GOREN BRIDGE
WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
SA10O65QJ730 844762

The bidding has proceeded:
WEST NORTH EAST SOUTH
14 Dbl 24 ?
Pass ?
What do you bid now?

A You have enough to compete but,
if you pick a suit to bid, you could
end up in a 4-3 fit. Since it is unlike-
ly that you could want to double for
penalties at the two-level when sand-
wiched between two hands showing
length in the suit, a double by you
now should be for takeout, forcing
partner to select a suit. You have the
perfect hand for that action.

Q 2 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:
4AJ83 KQ95 0QJ6472

The bidding has proceeded:
EAST SOUTH WEST NORTH
14 Dbl Pass 1
Pass ?
What action do you take?

A Since partner's simple response
to your takeout double shows a max-
imum of 8-9 points, this hand is
going nowhere. Tell partner you have
a minimum takeout double by pass-
ing.

Q 3 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
S622 1087 oAQ6 4QJ1054

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

A Your hand is not quite good
enough for a two-over-one response,
and to respond one no trump with a
weak doubleton in the unbid major is
distasteful. (Switch the diamond and
spade holdings and it would be more
palatable.) Therefore raise to two
hearts despite having only weak
three-card support.

Q 4 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
4 AQ764 KJ843 0 Void.l1076


The bidding has proceeded:
WEST NORTH EAST
10 Dbl 4o0
What do you bid now?


SOUTH
9


A If you simply bid four of a major,
you are guilty of one of the most
egregious underbids of the decade.
You are surely in slam territory, and
the way to get that across to partner,
as well as to be sure you land in the
right strain is to cuebid five diamonds
now.

Q 5 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:
* A Q 1076 ~J 9 o J873487

The bidding has proceeded:
WEST NORTH EAST SOUTH
Pass 1V 4o ?
What action do you take?

A This is largely guesswork. If you
could be sure of finding spade sup-
port with partner, you could venture
four spades. But partner could have a
heart/club two-suiter, and you would
then be in trouble. All in all, it looks
as if your best bet is a double. Partner
will know it is based on a modicum
of high cards rather than on a trump
stack.

Q 6 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
49654v J6520 A8 *AK8

North opens the bidding with five
diamonds. What action do you take?

A Partner's vulnerable pre-empt at
this level should show about 10 tricks
with diamonds as trumps, and you
are bringing him three more, so it
might seem that you should raise to
slam. However, there is the possibili-
ty that partner has two fast losers in
one of the majors, so we would take
the conservative view and pass.

to the ace provided the entry for a
losing club finesse. West won with
the queen and reverted to a heart,
ducked by East. Declarer was now on
easy street and ended up with 10
tricks.
The contract and play to the first
two tricks were the same at the other
table, but West found a better
defense. After winning the queen of
clubs he shifted to a spade, attacking
declarer's communications. Declarer
overtook the queen with the king,
cashed the ace and king of clubs and
conceded a club to the ten as East
parted with the jack of diamonds.
West now continued his fine
defense by cashing the ace of
diamonds, forcing declarer to part
with a black-suit winner. West exited
with a spade. Declarer could cash his
winners, but West continued his fine
defense by sluffing the ten of hearts
so, at the end, declarer had to
concede two heart tricks down
one!

Hepatitis B and C the most

common kinds of viral hepati


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
My husband and I are in
our 50s. Both of us had an
exam this year from dif-
ferent doctors. Blood tests
showed that we both have
hepatitis C. Neither of
us feels sick, and neither
of us ever remembers
acquiring this infection.
Our doctors say we don't
need any treatment. What
is the treatment if we ever
do? Are we infectious to
others? We don't have
children. -K.K.
ANSWER: In North
America, hepatitis B and C
are the two most common
kinds of viral hepatitis. In
the United States, about
1.25 million are infected
with hepatitis B virus.
Five percent of infected
people go on to develop a
chronic infection, one in
which the virus remains
in the liver, and these
people face the possibility
of coming down with liver
cirrhosis or liver cancer. A
vaccine for the prevention
of hepatitis B is available.
Hepatitis C infects
around 3 million Ameri-
cans. In contrast with
hepatitis B, around
70 percent to 80 percent
will have a chronic infec-
tion. A sizable number
will come down with liver
cirrhosis or cancer, but
that doesn't happen right
away. It takes 20 or more
years before those com-
plications arise.
When treatment of
hepatitis C is advised,
two medicines have been
given simultaneously
for many years. Those
drugs are peginterferon
and ribavirin. About
50 percent of chronic hep-
atitis C patients respond
well to this regimen.
However, blacks have a
poorer response, with
only 25 percent achiev-
ing viral suppression. A
true breakthrough has
arrived in the treatment
of hepatitis C. Two new
drugs, telaprevir (Incivek)
and boceprevir (Victrelis)
have had a huge impact in
improving treatment suc-
cess. Either of these drugs,
given in conjunction with
the standard treatment
of ribavirin and peginter-
feron, greatly increases
the cure rates for blacks
and whites.
An initial sickness
after acquiring hepati-
tis C virus is rare, and,
that's why you and your
husband didn't realize
you were infected. The
virus can be transmitted
through blood transfu-
sions (no longer a threat),
sharing needles for drug
injections, rarely through
sexual relations and

household contact, but
more possibly through
promiscuous sex and
in ways yet to be deter-
mined. You're not a threat
to others.
The booklet on hepati-
tis describes these infec-
tions and their treatment,
not including the latest
treatments. Readers can

DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
My brother cracks his
knuckles. He does it to
annoy me. It gives me
the shivers, and I know
he enjoys that. Can you
provide me with any in-
formation that will scare
him, like coming down
with arthritis? L.C.
ANSWER: I'd love to
give you some informa-
tion that would stop your
brother from cracking
his knuckles. It bothers
me, too. I can't come up
with any. It doesn't cause
arthritis.
To produce the cracking
sound, a person pulls his
finger in such a way that
it creates a bubble in the
joint fluid. Then the bubble
bursts and makes a crack-
ing noise when it does.
I can't understand why
people do this.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
Please help me in under-
standing some medical
terms.
"Genes," "chromo-
somes" and "DNA" are
the ones that most bother
me. I probably could get
this information from my
grandchildren, but I don't
want to expose my igno-
rance. S.S.
ANSWER: Chromo-
somes are long chains of
genes. Humans have 26
pairs of chromosomes.
Genes on the chromo-
somes dictate how we
look, our height, our
tendency to gain weight or
stay lean, and just about
all our physical and men-
tal endowments.
DNA, deoxyribonucleic
acid, is the building blocks
of genes.

Cleaning up vinegar varieties


Dear Heloise: The men-
tion of vinegar in your
column made me think
that it would be a good
idea to put in your col-
umn that white vinegar is
made up of only cleaning
ingredients and should be
used only for cleaning.
Cider vinegar is used for
food or personal uses. I
just learned this recently,
so I'm sure a lot of others
are in the dark, as I was.
- A Reader in Florida
Dear Readers: Let's
clear up some misin-
formation out there.
Vinegar is one of my all-
time favorite products.
I know from years and
years of research that
white vinegar definitely
is NOT made of cleaning
ingredients; it's made
from corn and diluted
with water. Nothing else!
It is a green cleaner and
cheap, which makes it
a better choice than the
harsher, chemical-based
cleaners that are on the
market.
Apple-cider vinegar
is made from you
guessed it apples! Both
are great when used in
salads, salad dressings
and as an ingredient in
marinades. Heloise
P.S.: Remember, both
types can be used to clean
around the house. Buy
the cheapest jug.

Hints from Heloise

because I always place
the meat I am purchas-
ing in the plastic bags
the store provides.
However, the other day
I watched a man next to
me place the bag, inside
out, over his hand before
reaching for the meat,
so he never touched the
packaging at all.
From now on, I will do
the same to avoid hav-
ing any contact with the
product, thus avoiding
any cross-contamination.
Thought this was a great
hint to pass on! Lisa D.,
via email

Extra space
Dear Heloise: I have
read and enjoyed your
column for many years. I
have a handy hint that I
have never seen in print.
During the holidays (and
at other times), there
never seems to be enough
counter space to put food
and everything else. So
I use my ironing board!
I cover it with foil so it
doesn't get stained and
then drape a tablecloth
over it to finish the look.

Mother-in-law's scanty clothes

get dressing-down from wife


DEAR ABBY: I am an
educated woman in my
late 20s. I have been mar-
ried for several years to a
wonderful man, and we
were recently blessed with
our first child.
Since our wedding,
my relationship with my
mother-in-law has been
an evolving one. Since
the inception of "Des-
perate Housewives" on
TV, she seems to believe
she's a character on the
show. She trots around in
revealing clothing look-
ing like a streetwalker.
She spends most of her
time gossiping with her
newfound buddies who
are half her age, and who
seem to delight in dress-
ing her up to make her
the talk of the town.
As a little girl, when I
dreamed of how my life
would be as a married
woman, it was never like
this. My dreams never
included a MIL who
enjoys seeing people look
at her in disbelief as she
struts across the room. I
don't want this to be an
example for my daughter.
Confronting her doesn't
work she responds
with guilt and mockery. In
other words, she always
wins. I'm at a loss and
have given up trying to
figure her out. Please
help. DESPERATE
HOUSEWIFE
DEAR DESPERATE: As
an educated woman, it's
time for you to smarten up
and accept your mother-
in-law for the "character"
she is warts and all. You
were wrong to expect her
to fulfill the fantasy role
you created for her. She's
not ready to do it and
she may never be.
The way she dresses will
not influence your daugh-
ter; you will do that. Your
mother-in-law's attire is a
reflection only on her, not
you. Remember that. If
she is so youthful in spirit
that she has been accept-
ed by a younger group of
women, stop judging her
and perhaps even learn
from it. She's not over the
hill yet. So stop trying to
push her there, and you'll
both be happier.


Dear Abby


DEAR ABBY: My hus-
band, "Joe," and I have
been married for 12 years.
I have a daughter from a
previous marriage and he
has a son from a previous
relationship. My daughter
is married and lives in
another state.
My 22-year-old stepson,
"Junior," lives with us. He
has a history of drug and
alcohol abuse and has
stolen from us. I recently
discovered that another
item of mine was missing.
I told Joe it has to stop
- that I can't live like a
prisoner in my own home.
Joe will not kick Junior out
of the house. Joe said HE
would leave, but that he
won't put Junior out on
the street like a dog.
Our marriage was solid
until Junior's problems
started a year ago. I'd
never ask my husband
to make a choice. Junior
is his son. I, on the other
hand, feel like a stranger
in my own home. We
barely speak now and
have been sleeping in
separate rooms. I am at a
loss. Abby, have you any
advice? STRANGER IN
MY OWN HOME
DEAR STRANGER: Yes.
You and your husband
should consult a therapist
who specializes in treating
addictions. Your husband
loves his son, but he is
enabling him to continue
using by turning a blind
eye to his stealing and not
enforcing consequences.
Sometimes love has to
be tough. Because your
marriage has deteriorated
to the point that you no
longer speak or share a
bedroom, recognize that
you must look out for your
own welfare because your
husband seems unwilling
or unable to.


Therefore they that were scattered abroad went
everywhere preaching the Word."-Acts 8:4 and "And
daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not
to teach and preach Jesus Christ."-Acts 5:42
Remember it is the Book of Acts not of alibis and
excuses. Today the average Christian is around
watching and waiting with the rest of the world for the
news ... they went out and made it!

CRANKSHAFT By Tom Batiuk & Chuck Ayers


SHOE By MacNelly Productions


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


I HOROSCOPE
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Much will depend on
what kind of friend you are.Try to think ahead about
what a friend might need from you. Also consider
the expectations you've already set up and how
you'll deliver on them, or not.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).You want to have a
good time and be a big contributor to the social
swirl, but you have so much on your mind that social
goings-on might not seem like a huge priority.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Buried pain has a way


of metal detector to remind you where the heavy
elements are hidden.
CANCER (June 22-July 22).You accept that you
have created your experience. Something definitive
will happen to let you know whether it's working
for you or not.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).Where you spend your time
will be crucial to the way relationships develop or
don't. Go where you're sure to be in the mix with all
the players who are in your game.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your word is good. You'll


say you'll do. It's part of why you're confident: You
trust yourself to deliver, and others trust you, too.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). So many people don't
think about the details, but you do, and it gives you
an advantage. Because you are concerned about the
initial impression you make on others, you'll come
across even better than you intended.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Sometimes you forget
to use your position to share yourself fully with
others.Today you'll take the responsibility to heart.
You'll be warm when others are distant. Instead of


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Every adventure
involves an element of danger. If there is no danger,
it might be an exciting experience, but it's not really
an adventure.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You'll be involved in
a group effort and will be very aware of the fact that
your friends are also your teammates.Try to develop
a strategy that will allow everyone to win together.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). In order to be a
superstar in any area of the world, you have to get
involved in every aspect of it. You'll dive for deeper


of staying buried until someone clever acts as a kind knockyourselfout to make sure you do whatyou


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Some of your greatest
triumphs will happen because of the particular way
you pick yourself up after a fall. Knowing this, you're
not afraid to slip up.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY(Dec. 14).You'll build your
network of supporters, friends and customers. Your
relationship with yourself is the most important
oneyou'll nurture. You'll find new reasons and
ways to appreciate who you are, grow your talents
and care for yourself on every level. January unites
lovers. Pisces and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky
numbers are: 20,14, 2, 4 and 25.


JANRIC CLASSIC SUDOKU
Fill in the blank cells using numbers 1 to 9. Each number can appear only once in each row,

Se


by Gardens sparkle for holidays


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Lights in Bloom is one of the Cultural Coast's
prettiest holiday traditions.
For 10 nights, beginning Friday, Marie
Selby Botanical Gardens will sparkle with many
new species of flora and fauna all made of
lights.
High up in the banyan trees giant butterflies
will light up the tree top. On the ground along
walkways, turtles made of lights will make the
way. Interspersed among Selby's real flowers
and shrubs will be giant flowers made of lights,
more butterflies, tree frogs and some dragonflies.
The fantasy of lights began as a vision of Bob
McComb who these days is known around Selby
Gardens as The Illuminator."
Word from the gardens is that this year's even
will be more fantastic, with interactive tree men
and dancing sugar plum fairies who will help
guide the way.


There are always plenty of refreshments for
sale, Arm yourself with something to sip as you
stroll the grounds. Prepare to stop occasionally
to enjoy entertainment at the Schimmel wedding
pavilion. From the benches near the Bo tree, you
can enjoy still more lights across the bay from
Bird Key, not to mention the Ringling Causeway
Bridge. While you are at the Bo tree, be sure to
make a wish. Write your wish on a colorful ribbon
and attach it to the "wishing" tree.
Near the Selby mansion, enjoy more entertain-
ment and view miniature trains. The Christmas
Quartet will perform there on Friday, Sunday,
Dec. 23 and 26. Other entertainers include Rex
Willis, the Southeast High School Chamber Or-
chestra, the Jacobites Pipe & Drum Band, Marc
Mannings and Missing Links.
Santa Claus and his elves will be on hand
to greet guests in his workshop and Toyland
everyday. There also will be activities connected
with Chanukah and Kwanza. There will be plenty


of live music in the gardens by Sarasota singers,
guitarists and others.
An annual highlight being duplicated again for
this y ear's event is the 20-foot tall bromeliad tree
in front of the Christy Payne Mansion. Inside the
house, members of the Florida West Coast Chap-
ter of the American Society of Interior Designers
will create a showhouse of holiday-themed rooms
and decor items such as designer wreaths and
trees. Designers maintain a botanical theme
in keeping with Selby Gardens. Visit www.
paynemansionshowhouse.com for details. The
showhouse opened Dec. 1 and will remain open
from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. during regular daytime
garden hours at Selby as well as during Lights in
Bloom. Admission to the showhouse is included
in daytime and nighttime admission.
When you exit the house, more snacks, includ-

Sailing from Barcelona to Miami. Visiting Provence, France; Palma i
de Mallorca & Seville, Spain; & Canary Islands. I

'My Fair Lady" will leave Fort Myers speechless


PROVIDED BY BARBARA B. MANN
PERFORMING ARTS HALL
Henry Higgins, Eliza Doolittle and the rest
of the iconic characters from "My Fair
Lady" will transform the Barbara B. Mann
Performing Arts Hall to 1912 London in this
Broadway classic.
Hailed as the standard by which all other
musicals are judged, Professional Facilities Man-
agement brings this international treasure, upon
which the classic 1964 Audrey Hepburn movie
was based, to the Barbara B. Mann Performing
Arts Hall on March 7 through March 11 for a
limited eight performances.
Based on George Bernard Shaw's 1912
play Pygmalion, "My Fair Lady" will transport
audiences to Edwardian London and one of the


most beautiful stories ever told about language
and clash of cultures. It follows the relationship
between Eliza Doolittle, a Cockney flower girl,
and the snobbish and misogynistic Professor
Henry Higgins, a phoneticist, who wagers that
he can turn Eliza into a "proper lady" in three
months' time.
Those who experience "My Fair Lady" will be
enchanted by this tale of triumph of the human spirit,
as well as the love story that emerges between two
unlikely heroes, ultimately joined together by their
fascination with the English language.
When the show first opened on Broadway in
1956, starring Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews,
critics described it as "legendary" and "one of
the greatest musicals of the century." "My Fair
Lady" went on to win six Tony Awards, and, in


1961, became the longest-running production in
Broadway history at that time.
"My Fair Lady" features book and lyrics by Alan
Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe, and
includes the classic songs "The Rain in Spain,"
'Wouldn't It Be Loverly" and "Get Me To The
Church On Time." Often called "the perfect musi-
cal," "My Fair Lady" is an unforgettable experi-
ence with beautiful music and exquisite costumes
that will remind theatre-goers as to why musical
theater was born.
The 2011-2012 national tour of "My Fair Lady"
features Aurora Florence as Eliza Doolittle; Chris
Carsten as Henry Higgins; Joyce Bohus as Mrs.
Higgins; Daniel Cardenes as Freddy Eynsford-
Hill; Richard Springle as Colonel Pickering and
Arthur Wise as Alfred P. Doolittle.

Blazing new trails in Placida


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
One of the newest entertainment/tour
ideas takes advantage of the best that
southwest Florida has to offer-miles and
miles of both water and horse trails.
Grande Tours has been offering fun, innova-
tive eco-tours in Placida for almost two decades.
Capt. Marian Schneider grew up on the coastal
waters here, but had a little employment detour
before she started her current business. "I have
a BS degree in Medical Technology from the
University of Miami," she said. "I left my career
in 1989 and started this business with one tour
boat, myself and some brochures."
Since she was from this area, she had a built-
in love of wildlife and marine life, and had always
been a boater. Her new tour boat business was
a success, but the way to stay operational over
such a long period of time is not to be stagnant.
To that end, Capt. Marian has continued to grow
her business over the years by providing more
and more services.
"I was the first to bring kayaks into the county
for rentals and tours about 12 years ago,"said
Capt. Marian. "Now we have almost 100 rental boats.
We also do new kayak sales, rentals and outfitting."
With boat rentals, the newest phase is paddle-

riding portion of the Paddles to Saddles tour.

boarding, which is also handled by Grande Tours.
They will sell, rent and equip those for you, too.
If taking in nature from the air is more your thing,
Grande Tours has teamed up with another local
business to offer seaplane sightseeing tours.You
and three of your guests can get a birdseye view
of Boca Grande and the Gulf islands, while being
chauffeured by an experienced 30-year pilot.
But the most innovative of all of Capt. Marian's
ideas has to be her Paddles to Saddles tour, a
new program at Grande Tours. '"What I created
is a package combination," she said. "You have
a couple of hours' rental on the kayaks and a
one and half hour guided horseback trail ride."
Because you may not have almost four hours to

devote at one time, you can divide up the tours,
completing each one on different days.
Response to the new program has been enthu-
siastic. "This is the fasting growing program of all
the new ones," said Capt. Marian. "When I first put
it on the website, people just loved it. They saw it
and thought, 'Wow, that would be neat."'
By staying on top of all the current trends and
providing quality family tours on a consistent ba-
sis, Capt. Marian and Grande Tours are remaining
ahead of the curve. "I always say I want to be the
first one off the porch," she says, "and everyone
else can follow."

Gallagher returns to Visani


PROVIDED BY VISANI

Gallagher is coming to Visani Comedy Din-
ner Theater Tuesday through Dec. 23.
Gallagher was one of the most popular
and recognizable American comedians during
the early 1980s.
His appearance to Visani will be his non-
sledge show.This show is pure stand up comedy,


While some guests might be disappointed, others
will be thrilled to enjoy Gallagher's brilliant stand
up routine without the need to wear a raincoat.
Gallagher often uses wordplay in his act, skewer-
ing the English language and its eccentricities.
He mentions in one routine that words like "b-o-
m-b," "t-o-m-b" and "c-o-m-b" are not pronounced
similarly, which he calls "d-u-m-b."
Guests are encouraged to arrive early for


dinner and for a special meet and greet with Gal-
lagher before every show.
Gallagher encourages patrons to bring cam-
eras and take as many pictures as possible. All
shows starts at 8 p.m.

Christmas mood


PROVIDED BY THE CHARLOTTE COUNTY
CONCERT BAND
The Charlotte County Concert Band, under
the direction of DeVere Fader, will usher in
the Christmas season with a concert at
2 p.m. Sunday at the Cultural Center, 2280 Aaron
St., Port Charlotte.
The program, titled "Tis the Season to be Jolly,"
includes both sacred and secular Christmas
music. The sacred portion includes "Saints Hal-
lelujah," a selection made famous by the Canadian
Brass. It combines the "Hallelujah Chorus" with
"When the Saints Go Marching In." Following will
be "Jesu Bambino" "and Bless Us, Everyone."
"The Little Drummer Boy" in the style of Maurice
Ravel's "Bolero," and "Adeste Fidelis" conclude the
sacred section.
Following intermission, the band will perform
two of Georges Bizet's masterworks, "Farandole"


and "Le Carillon." Composer and band member
Malinda Zenor has written a new Christmas
selection, "A Very Cool Yule," which will be getting
its premier performance. The medley contains
six Christmas favorites done up in novel styles.
Following are two light classical pieces, Gabriel
Pierni's "March of the Little Tin Soldiers," and
Leopold Mozart's hilarious "Toy Symphony," which
features novelty instruments like the nightingale
and the cuckoo.
The vocal quartet, "The Bandettes," will
perform the ballad, "Have Yourself a Merry Little
Christmas." The concert concludes with Leroy
Anderson's "Sleighride," and Irving Berlin's 'White
Christmas." The audience will get a chance to
participate as Mastro Fader will ask everyone to
join in singing "White Christmas."

Murray Chase writes an original musical


adaptation of Dickens' 'A Christmas Carol'


EI IC December 14-20, 2011


BY MCCLAREN MALCOLM
SUN CORRESPONDENT
V nice Theatre's Murray Chase, artistic
director for 16 years, writes an ongoing
story His cast of characters: 1,500 dedicated
volunteers, award-winning staff and forward-looking
board. He keeps his story line fresh: inspiring his
company to drama, growth and fun.
While these elements of story make for a good
read, the playing out of the Venice Theatre story
does so much more: launching careers through
a state accredited course, the Technical Theatre
Apprenticeship Program, teaching students
discipline and responsibility, taking theater to
schools with Troop in a Trunk and partnering
with Loveland. The working title of Chase's story
could be "Building a Better Community."
Chase took time out from preparing the annual
musical of Dickens'"A Christmas Carol' "to reflect.
He slips into a down-South dialect with origins
near Tupelo, Miss. "where the natives tell you
something three times. That's right, they'll tell
you three times. Yes, mamm, they tell you three
times." Chase smiles as he savors memories


living on Elvis Presley Drive.
His mother wielded an "iron-velvet hand to
back up her sweet talking ways. She would sup-
port you all the way" His family values---"be respect-
ful and don't settle" for less than the best, permeate
Venice Theatre culture today as verified by Cara
Herman, assistant director of advancement.
Even as a boy, Chase loved ideas and learn-
ing; his mother taught him whatever was at
hand---sometimes spelling on long car trips or
math while preparing a tax return at the kitchen
table. Finishing the morning chores left Chase
free to play baseball when he wasn't "living at the
library." He read mostly non-fiction and biogra-
phies because he was "curious about what made
people tick." "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" by
Mark Twain, was a favorite.
He discovered community theater while direct-
ing summer stock. The actors and crew were "so
interesting, so diverse, coming from all walks of
life. They wanted to bring out their talent, build a
better community."
In 1995 Chase saw Venice Theatre, "had
consistency artistically The size was right, small


budget of $450,000, and it was ready to explode."
Chase was hired as artistic director. He put into
place a "terrific board: smart, cautionary, forward
thinking with the ability to germinate new ideas."
He began his work adding 120 seats to the
Main Stage, rehearsal rooms and offices, a
balcony and growing the budget to a current
$2,595,000. In 2000 Chase commissioned a
musical version of Dickens'"A Christmas Carol."
Susan Ott and Scott Keys, Director of Visual and
Performing Arts Center of Booker High School,
wrote the lyrics and score.
Now a tradition among theater goers and act-
ing company alike, audiences and actors come
back each year. Older actors mentor the younger
in new parts. Families form part of the cast as
related by Linda Mangold, actress and mother of
actors Emily and Patrick Mounce.
Tradition or no, changes in 2011 threatened
the show's annual run. Steve Credeur, who
played Fezziwig died last year. The cast did not
want to go on. Chase rallied them saying that
Credeur would get cranky, come back, and kick
some butt if the actors stayed home. The cast

Gallery Walk offers fantastic art, food and fun


BY AIMEE COLEY
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Gallery Walk livens up downtown Punta
Gorda on the third Thursday of each
month. At every Gallery Walk event,
shops and art galleries located in downtown
Punta Gorda stay open late and invite visitors
to enjoy complimentary refreshments, including
wine and snacks. The event also offers live enter-
tainment and features local musicians.
The upcoming Gallery Walk on Thursday will
feature a festive theme, and merchants will be
serving hot cider instead of wine. Candy Cane
Lane and visits with Santa will be available for
children. Merchants will be collecting food dona-
tions for the Good Samaritans food pantry as well
as donations for Toys for Tots. Additionally, shops
and galleries will be selling Christmas ornaments.
The proceeds from the ornaments will be used to
purchase holiday gifts for children in the Guardian


ad Litem program, a service that provides advo-
cates to children involved in court proceedings.
Gallery Walk will be celebrating its eighth an-
niversary this January. It began in January 2003
as the brainchild of Marilyn Thorndycraft and
Charles Peck. Thorndycraft is actively involved in
community improvement and volunteer work, and
Peck is a local artist. They conceived of Gallery
Walk as a way to simultaneously increase interest
in the arts, support local merchants, and provide
residents with a fun event each month.
Sponsored by the Dowtown Merchants As-
sociation, Gallery Walk draws large crowds each
month, and has over 57 participating members,
including a variety of art galleries, restaurants,
retail stores, and specialty shops. Thorndycraft
attributes the event's continued success to
the incredible support of local residents and
merchants.
Art galleries such as Sea Grape Gallery,


Creative Circle Studio and Gallery, and Sunart
Gallery and Framing get many visitors who are
interested in viewing the work of local artists. The
Swiss Chocolate shop is also popular, with a line
sometimes forming out the door as visitors wait to
sample free chocolate or to buy delectable treats.
Another hot spot is Centennial Bank, which offers
free parking for the event and provides an assort-
ment of refreshments.
Centennial Bank provides space for local
artists, including Mary Cavanagh and Terrell
Wozniak, to feature their work during Gallery
Walk. Cavanagh works in several media, includ-
ing watercolors, inks, and fused glass. She also
makes and sells jewelry. Her work is on display at
the Visual Arts Center and the Creations Gallery.
Wozniak works with stained glass and says his
"ideas and subject matter come from nature,
pattern books, and art books." His work is on
display at the Inspirations Studio and at

Marcille Wallis and Friends release new Celtic CD


BY BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Marcille Wallis has just released a new
CD, "Marcille Wallis and Friends Live,"
a collection of Celtic music she and her
band recorded at the Western North Carolina
Highlands Celtic Festival in Black Mountain, N.C.
Although it is Wallis' ninth CD, it's the first she's
recorded with this group.
"We've been together for six years, and our
fans have been asking us to put out a CD," said
Wallis, "so we're really excited to have released
this. It was tough deciding what to put on it, but
the end product is full of energy and a good vari-
ety of our music, so we think people will enjoy it."
The line-up that has worked so well for six
years includes Don Pigeon on vocals, mandolin,
whistle and guitar; Matt Miller on fiddle and Wallis
on the hammer dulcimer.



'A Thrill c
PROVIDED BY THE FIRST PRESBYTERIAN
CHURCH
The First Presbyterian Church Choir invites
you to attend their Christmas Musical, "A
Thrill of Hope" created by Claire Cloninger,
and Camp Kirkland.The music focuses on the
Scriptures, Carols, and worship choruses.
Traditional Christmas songs as well as con-
temporary songs are woven together to tell the
incredible story of the hope that came to earth as
a Baby-the hope that comes to heal the hope-
less human heart. There will be drama, narration,
soloists and congregational singing.


Although these are the instruments the band
members play together, all are accomplished
musicians on many other instruments. Pigeon
also plays the Irish wooden flute, the octave man-
dolin and the tenor banjo. The octave mandolin is
closer to a guitar in size. Due to its larger body
and longer strings, it can produce lower tones
than a regular mandolin. The tenor banjo has
four strings, compared with the typical five, and
is more of a melody instrument than the regular
banjo that produces the higher tones used in
bluegrass music, Wallis explained.
Miller also plays guitar and many other instru-
ments, but the fiddle is his specialty. He plays
Celtic music with the band, but his versatility
earned him the title of the 2008 Florida State
Bluegrass Fiddle Champion.
Wallis grew up playing piano, and first played
in public at church. She then learned the organ



)f Hope'
The choir of thirty-five members will be accom-
panied by a full orchestra and piano. Paul Brewer, the
choral\ director will be directing both the choir and the
orchestra.The piano accompanist will be Judy Prier.
The Christmas Musical will be presented at
10 a.m. Sunday in the church sanctuary,
2230 Hariet St., Port Charlotte.
A free will offering will be taken. For more
information, call 941-625-5045.

and guitar, and was introduced to the dulcimer
and hammer dulcimer as an adult. "The dulcimer
is strummed, while the hammer dulcimer is a
percussion instrument," Wallis said. The hammer
dulcimer is her passion, and she often plays it at
solo concerts.
When the band performs they are often ac-
companied by featured dancers Ann and Cal
Lloyd, who perform Scottish country dances and
Irish soft-shoe figure dances.
The group will be promoting the new CD at two
upcoming local concerts as they play throughout
Florida during their Christmas with the Celts Con-
cert Series. Today, they'll be playing at the First
Presbyterian Church in Arcadia and on Saturday
at the Congregational United Church of Christ in
Punta Gorda. Both concerts begin at 7 p.m.
On Jan. 14 and 15, the band will perform at the
Central Florida Scottish Highlands games and


Celtic Festival in Winter Springs. On Jan 21 the
band returns to Punta Gorda for a concert at the
Congregational United Church of Christ at 7 p.m.

winter and spring schedule and information on

Myakka River Oyster Bar

Waterfront dining in an old Florida setting


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The most perfect spot for a seafood restau-
rant must be on the water, right?
On the Myakka River in Venice, there is
such a place. The Myakka River Oyster Bar is on
the site of the old Playmore Resort, a 1950s fish
camp that was next to US 41. An unassuming-
looking building from the outside, the inside
consists of million dollar views.
It was seemingly fate that led JoAnn Stegena
and her husband Mike to purchase the property
sixteen years ago. "I was an accountant," said
Stegena. "I had clients all over this area and
drove by it (the property). We found out it was for
sale by owner and that we could put a restaurant
on it. We just felt that the property would lend
itself to a waterfront restaurant."
Stegena is especially proud of the types of
seafood she serves. "We only buy wild-caught
seafood," she said. "If you buy farm-raised shrimp,
there is absolutely no taste to them.There
really is a difference." Sometimes her and her
husband's searching takes them to places far
away from the Gulf Coast. "We travel a bit and try
things in different areas," she said. "We're working
on getting some Alaskan Salmon in. We try to
stay on top of getting the best product we can."
Having the restaurant sixteen years in the


same spot, the Stegenas have been the benefi-
ciaries of many loyal customers from all the towns
around it. "Our location is a great place for people
to meet," Stegena said. "We're kind of a destina-
tion diner."
One of the things to which Stegena attributes
her restaurant's longevity is her staff, stressing
that when her regular customers come in, they
enjoy seeing familiar faces. "I have about 25
employees, maybe 35 for the season," she said.
"We do have a lot of seasonal employees, but our
crew is very consistent. Usually once people who
are just coming into the area find us, they'll come
in two or three times a year."
That consistency, combined with the quality of
the food and the level of customer service pro-
vided, is what has allowed Stegena's restaurant
to stay in business when so many others have
failed. "All of our food is prepared from scratch,"
she said, "and most of our recipes have been
tried out and used for years. People always speak
highly about the seafood we serve here."
Then Stegena said the three words that every
restaurant owner must be able to say in order to
survive for any length of time, "We love it."
The Myakka River Oyster Bar is located at 121
Playmore Drive, Venice.
For more information, call 941-423-9616 or

Combined barbershop choruses to perform 'Holiday Harmonies'


BY CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The Lemon Bay Chord Company and The
Sarasota Chorus of the Keys will be per-
forming "Holiday Harmonies" on Thursday
in Sarasota and on Saturday in Englewood.
Chris Owens, who directs both groups,
explained that the idea of a first-ever joint concert
came from Lemon By Chord Company President
Ed Messner and Sarasota Chorus of the Keys
President Jim Stoup. The combined choruses,
numbering 80 leads, baritones, tenors and
basses, will be sporting holiday colors-red and
white for the Englewood group and sparkled
outfits for the Sarasota singers.
Voices blended in perfect harmony during
their first rehearsal on Nov. 17 at Christ Lutheran
Church in Englewood. The choruses practiced
lively holiday arrangements for the first part of
the show that will include "Rudolph, Chipmunks,
Frosty" and an amusing rendition of "Shopping,
Shopping."The second half will feature traditional
Christmas Carols including "While by my Sheep"
and "Angels We Have Heard on High."
The highlight of the concert will be a solo by
Cassandra Lima, a Lemon Bay Chord Company
scholarship recipient. She will perform "Breath of
Heaven" dressed as the Virgin Mary as part of
a living Nativity scene. Lima is a music theater
major at the University of Tampa.
Both the Lemon Bay Chord Company and the
Sarasota Chorus of the Keys provide scholar-

Robbie Massaro: Pineapples Island Grill


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
On the corner of US 41 Business and
Miami Avenue on the island of Venice is
Pineapples Island Grill, which has spe-
cialized in island-type fare for years. But with the
recent addition of a new chef, the menu is about
to take a different direction.
Robbie Massaro recently moved to the area
from Cape May, New Jersey. Growing up in


Philadelphia, he had an early start to his culinary
career. "I started working for Tom (Carney, the
owner) when I was sixteen," he said.
Later, he ran a seafood restaurant in Cape
May, also a coastal town, and ended up working
for Carney's brother there. "I'm friends with his
brother," said Massaro. "I've worked with him for
twenty years." His relationship with the Carney
family, and Tom Carney's ideas about what path
the new menu should take, is what eventually led

BY ANN HORNADAY
(C) 2011, THE WASHINGTON POST
Reportedly, "The Sitter," a raunchy new
comedy starring Jonah Hill, will be the last
movie to feature the pear-shaped young
actor in his heavy-set form, Hill having slimmed
down considerably in recent months. Although
the fatter-the-funnier equation is doubtlessly glib,
there's no question that when actors like Hill and
Seth Rogen seek deeper, more complex roles -
in "Moneyball" and "50/50," say the first step
always seems to be more protein shakes and
fewer Ding-Dongs.
For those fans who cherish Hill's delicate
balance of anxiety and self-confidence that finds
its uncanny embodiment in a fat man's physical
contradictions (claiming space while projecting
unworthiness of it), "The Sitter" will constitute a
vulgar, fitfully funny, if not completely fond farewell
to Hill's baby fat phase.


Hill plays an arrested adolescent named Noah
who's living at home with his mom after being
suspended from college; with no discernible job in
sight, his chief occupation is pursuing a self-cen-
tered blonde named Marisa (Ari Graynor), who is
enthusiastically enjoying his prowess in bed as
"The Sitter" opens.
"The Sitter' plays like an R-rated homage to
the 1980s comedy "Adventures in Babysitting,"
with some "Date Night" and lots of filthy
humor thrown in. Spiked with some loopily
inspired supporting performances
(Sam Rockwell turns up as a freaky, tweaky
drug dealer running the world's most hilariously
depraved coke den) and Hill's characteristically
inspired improvisational asides, "The Sitter"
is an efficient but uneven programmer, whose
most valuable contribution to the cinematic
landscape is its blessedly brief 80-minute
running time.

Let's Go! E/N/C/V December 14-20, 2011
Temptations performing at Cultural Center


PROVIDED BY CELEBRITYDIRECT
Glenn Leonard, the former lead singer of
one of Motown's most iconic groups, The
Temptations, will be appearing at the
Charlotte County Cultural Center Theater at 7 p.m.
Friday in an exclusive performance of his show titled
"Glenn Leonard Presents Hitsville Live."
"The Hitsville Live" show is a 90 minute
tribute to all the stars of Motown including The
Supremes, Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye, The
Marvelettes, Stevie Wonder and The Temptations
among many others. This show is the only currently
running tribute to Motown that features an actual


recording member of the famed record label.
Leonard was the lead singer and first tenor of
The Temptations from 1975-83, and recorded an
impressive 10 albums with the group, toured the
world many times, and was featured on numer-
ous television programs throughout United States
and worldwide. One of his "signature songs," from
his time with The Temptations, was their version
of "Silent Night" from their highly acclaimed
Christmas album which features Leonard's high
tenor voice is still one of the most widely played
Christmas songs on the radio today, world-
wide and which will be featured in the Cultural
Center performance. Leonard's recording of the


Temptations' song "Power" has also been heard
on the recent Blackberry television advertising
campaign.
Joining Leonard on stage is the Hitsville
Live Band, an 8-piece group of vocalists and
musicians from the Charlotte County area that
Leonard exclusively uses for his "Hitsville Live"
performances. This group also performs in the
area as The Crashers and consists of Carlton
Flonnoy (lead vocals), Carmen Peters (lead vo-
cals), Yahaloma Ramos (lead vocals), Mark Wolf
(percussion), Gene Hart (keyboards), Tommy
LoBue (guitar), Chris D'Urso (bass) and Loren
Berry (drums).
