Plane crash li


to be ruled pilot error


By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR

The crash of a flight school
aircraft in Venice two weeks
ago was not caused by a faulty
engine, according to a pre-
liminary report filed by the
National Transportation Safety
Board.
Local authorities had
stated the pilot said the
airplane had a loss of engine
power during the initial
climb after a touch-and-go
landing on Runway 4-22 at
Venice Municipal Airport.
A Federal Aviation Admin-
istration inspector con-
ducted an examination of the
airplane's fuel systems at the
accident site and found "no
discrepancies," noting there
was sufficient fuel onboard
to operate the plane.
A post-crash engine test
was conducted on the
plane, one of the blue-and-
yellow fleet of Florida Flight
Training School, by owner
Arne Kruithof, with FAA


investigators overseeing. It
fired up without a hitch.
"The engine started, pro-
duced and maintained power
without any discrepancies
noted during the test run,"
states the NTSB preliminary
report, issued last week.
That leaves pilot error as
the remaining cause.
Kruithof speculated car-
buretor ice could have been
involved.
"There was a lot of mois-
ture in the air that day and
the temperature was ideal,"
he said. "If you speed (air)
through the carburetor, you
can have carburetor ice. To
prevent that we have carbu-
retor heat hot air around
the exhaust pipe used to
warm up the engine. (But
if) you are descending, and
accelerate to full power -
and that builds ice on the
throttle value it could get
sucked into the engine. That
will kill an engine."
He was relieved the pilot
walked away unhurt, and just


as relieved to hear the FAA
official conclude his aircraft
wasn't at fault.
"It's important for our busi-
ness and our clients to know
our aircraft are safe and are
mechanically sound," Kruithof
said.
Former Russian Air Force
jet pilot Oleg Anatollyevich
Bachurin walked away unin-
jured Dec. 9 after the single-
engine Cessna 152 he was
flying maneuvered into a left
turn, colliding with electrical
wires before hitting Alliance
Fire & Safety's building on
Base Avenue and landing in a
fenced-in storage area.
Kruithof said the pilot had
thousands of hours under
his belt and was taking flying
lessons to obtain his com-
mercial pilot's certification.
Venice Municipal Airport
has about four incidents
annually.
"We just looked at the
(school's) statistics one
crash every five years," Kruit-
hof said previously. "That's not

general aviation airport will likely be attributed to pilot error.


bad for a training school."
While the aircraft's body
had substantial damage, the
engine will fly again.
"We ran it up and it ran
perfect," Kruithof said. "We


are putting it on another air-
plane ... back into service. It
has absolutely nothing wrong
with it."

FROM MOTE MARINE

Two loggerhead sea turtles
stranded in Englewood and
Osprey earlier this year were
rehabilitated at Mote Marine
Laboratory and returned to
sea recently after an extended
period of rest and free food.
The turtles, nicknamed
"Faith" and "Felicity," were
released on Lido Beach in
Sarasota by Mote caregiv-
ers and some of the people
involved in the rescues,
miles from where they were
rescued.
Both turtles were brought to
Mote's Sea Turtle Rehabilita-
tion Hospital malnourished
and sluggish, suffering from
lethargic loggerhead syn-
drome an illness of uncer-
tain origin that can immobi-
lize loggerhead sea turtles, a
threatened species protected
by federal law.
Faith, a subadult logger-
head measuring 30 inches,
was rescued July 15 on the
Charlotte County side of
Englewood by a family on
summer vacation.
Felicity was found listing to
one side and unable to dive
normally Aug. 29 near Black-
burn Point Bridge in Osprey.
Members of the Rogers
family spotted Faith bobbing
near a bridge to Manasota Key
and saw her enter a canal near
their rental property.
"The turtle was really lethar-
gic and she lay there on top
of the water with one flipper
toward the sky we were
afraid she'd go down and she
wouldn't come back up," said
Tammy Rogers of Plant City.
Rogers called Mote's Strand-
ing Investigations Program,
which responds to sick and
injured sea turtles, dolphins


and whales in Sarasota and
Manatee county waters.
Mote staff contacted the
Coastal Wildlife Club, which
responds to sea turtles in the
Englewood area, to guide the
family's rescue effort. Rogers
and her family lifted the turtle
onto the family's docked boat
and then into their truck.
Rogers, her husband Chuck,
their high school-age children,
Zack and Karly, and a CWC
staff member drove more than
an hour to take the turtle to
Mote. Karly named the turtle
"Faith."
Mote staff built up Faith's
strength and slowly increased
the water level in the turtle's
pool until she could dive and
rest on the bottom.
Felicity, also measuring
30 inches, was named after
the 2-year-old daughter of
Nicholas Ridgway, a law
enforcement officer with
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
who worked with Mote to
rescue the turtle.
Ridgway found the turtle
and contacted FWC dis-
patch, which in turn called
the Stranding Investigations'
24-hour pager. The team lifted
the turtle aboard the FWC
boat and brought it to shore,
then Mote staff drove it to the
turtle hospital.
Mote staff gave Felicity
fluids and food, along with
medication for an infection.
Mote has treated more
than 283 sick and injured sea
turtles since 1995. In Sarasota
or Manatee county waters,
report stranded or dead dol-
phins, whales or sea turtles to
941-988-0212.
Outside of Sarasota or
Manatee counties, call the
FWC at 888-404-3922.

Mote Marine Lab staff, interns and volunteers release Faith, a
loggerhead sea turtle, into the wild Dec. 16 at Lido Beach. Faith,
rescued in Englewood in July and Felicity, a second loggerhead
rescued in Osprey, were released following rehabilitation after
suffering from lethargic loggerhead syndrome.


Faith, a loggerhead sea turtle rescued in July in Englewood, is
prepared for release Friday after rehabilitation at Mote Marine
Laboratory.


City reaches

Venice Mayor John Holic received
support recently from fellow council
members to extend the city's hand
to neighboring communities and
help boost economic development in
South County.
The goal: develop a more compre-
hensive economic development game
plan for the area.
Holic met with the Nokomis Area
Civic Association Dec. 5, and the idea
gained traction.
"The board was quite receptive,"
Holic said.

Shopping


local has a


big purpose

By JOSH TAYLOR
WWSB 7

Whether you're getting some
last-minute shopping done or just
starting, economists say there's an
approach you want to think about:
shopping local. Or even better, buy-
ing products made locally. They say
it can go a long way toward boosting
the local economy.
Lutz Bremert is finding success
with his new store, The Venice Soap
Co.
"They are looking for products
made here in Florida," he said, "espe-
cially from Venice."
He sells products he gets from soap

Bicycle helmets


By MONTY ANDREWS
GUEST WRITER

Last year I happened
upon a gentleman who
had fallen off his bicycle
while riding along the
Venetian Waterway Park.
The fall resulted in a gash
on the back of his head.
My friend, Richard Cervi,
and I ended up taking the
man to the hospital for
stitches. He had not been
wearing a helmet.
Florida Statute Section
316.2065(3)(d) and (e)
require that a bicycle rider
under the age of 16 must
wear a bicycle helmet. The
requirement doesn't stop
there. The helmet must be
properly fitted, be fas-
tened securely and meet
a nationally recognized
standard established by
the Consumer Product
Safety Commission.


It is left, however, to
the discretion of riders 16
and older whether they
wish to wear a helmet. I
can only strongly recom-
mend all bike riders wear
a helmet.
Bicycle helmets are
proven to be effective at
reducing the severity of
head, brain and facial
injury. This is important,
as head injuries account
for about one-third of
hospital emergency room
visits by injured cyclists.
Excuses by cyclists
bemoaning that helmets
are a hassle, make you
look like a geek or mess
up your hair are lame. The
unexpected can happen
at any time and at any
speed. With that in mind,
the wise cyclist, regardless
of age, will always wear a
helmet while riding.
Ride safe, ride smart.

Voter registration
Deadline is Jan. 3

deadline is J an. 3


FROM THE SARASOTA COUNTY
SUPERVISOR OF ELECTIONS

Voters must be regis-
tered by Jan. 3 to be eli-
gible to vote in the Jan. 31
presidential preference
primary, Supervisor of
Elections Kathy Dent
said. New voter registra-
tions must be postmarked
by Jan. 3 or delivered in
person to any supervisor
of elections office no later
than 5 p.m. that day.
Because Florida is a
closed primary state, a
person can only vote in
the primary for the candi-
dates of the party in which
the person is registered.
This means that voters
registered without party
affiliation or in a party
other than the Republican
Party will not be eligible to
vote on Jan. 31.
Dent also urges voters
to verify and update their
registration information


prior to election day.
Voters may check their
voter registration status by
going to the SOE website
(www.SarasotaVotes.com).
Select "Voter Informa-
tion" from the menu and
then select "Voter Look-
up" and follow the easy
instructions.
New registrations,
signature updates, and
name and address chang-
es may be submitted on a
Florida Voter Registration
Application.
Application forms are
available at all supervi-
sor of elections offices,
city halls, county libraries
and offices, and social
service agencies, and may
be downloaded from the
SOE website.

Big Brothers, Denise Amber Lee Foundation get grants


FROM GULF COAST
COMMUNITY FOUNDATION

The board of directors
of Gulf Coast Communi-
ty Foundation approved
grants totaling $374,521
to local nonprofit orga-
nizations at its Decem-
ber meeting.
Several grants aim to
strengthen social service
delivery in the region, a
critical priority identi-
fied by the Gulf Coast
board for the founda-
tion's grant-making
this year. In the past
three years, Gulf Coast
has granted more than


$11 million to meet
the community's most
pressing health and hu-
man service needs.
Big Brothers Big
Sisters of the Sun Coast
was awarded a $78,000
grant to expand its Deci-
sions to Win mentoring
program in Venice and
surrounding communi-
ties. The agency plans
to grow the successful
program, which targets
high school students at
risk of dropping out of
school, to its new service
area in Port Charlotte. It
also will pilot a program
at Venice Middle School


called Gateway to Suc-
cess, which will help at-
risk eighth-graders who
are expected to enroll in
Decisions to Win when
they transition to Venice
High School.
The Denise Amber Lee
Foundation received a
$25,000 grant to help
with startup costs for the
organization's transi-
tion to a full operating
foundation dedicated to
highlighting and im-
proving inadequacies
in the emergency 911
system. Lee, 21, was ab-
ducted from her North
Port home on Jan. 17,


2008. Despite a call from
her on her captor's cell
phone and at least four
other 911 calls regarding
the crime including
one from a witness who
saw the kidnapper's car
and stayed on the phone
for nine minutes with
the 911 call center no
one ever was dispatched.
Her body was found two
days later.
The Jewish Family
and Children's Service
of Sarasota-Manatee
received the largest
amount $79,571,
to keep a grant writer
on its staff. The posi-


tion, which has been
funded by a Gulf Coast
grant for the past
two years, helped the
agency secure more than
$5.7 million in funding
for essential safety-net
services it provides in
the region.
The Loveland Center
in Venice, which pro-
vides a range of services
for adults with develop-
mental disabilities, got
a $43,750 grant to hire a
marketing specialist.
Legal Aid of Manasota,
which provides free legal
services to low-income
individuals, garnered


$30,000 to help it add a
marketing and develop-
ment staff member. This
is a capping grant that
will be paid when the
agency raises an addi-
tional $29,100 it needs
for the project.
Gulf Coast Commu-
nity Foundation, a public
charity created in 1995
through the sale of Venice
Hospital, has doled out
more than $128 million in
grants in the areas of arts
and culture, health and
human services, educa-
tion, civic and economic
development, and the
environment.


'Step Up' to end homelessnessCTTEUP:


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

There are no more
stereotypes in homeless-
ness.
When a large corpora-
tion in South Sarasota
County lays off workers,
the North Port Health
Center begins seeing an
unexpected clientele of
middle-class patients
whose homes were fore-
closed upon.
An Englewood middle
school student is sleep-
ing at a friend's house
after her parents no
longer can afford to
rent an apartment, but
by the federal govern-
ment's definition, she is
homeless.
A veteran returning
home from Iraq has no
place to go, so he lives in
a tent in a wooded area
of South Venice.
Counting the area's
homeless population is an
inexact process. By 2015,
nearly 50,000 Sarasota


County households will be
housing-cost burdened,
according to organizers of
Step Up: End Homeless-
ness in Sarasota County
Now. That number does
not include households
that are currently home-
less, at risk of eviction or
in foreclosure.
When the 2011 Home-
less Census was con-
ducted by the Suncoast
Partnership to End
Homelessness on Jan. 24
in Sarasota County,
organizers connected
with some 1,242 people
who met the definition
of homeless. Meanwhile,
some 1,229 homeless
Sarasota County students
were identified during the
last school year, accord-
ing to Schoolhouse Link,
a partnership between
the Sarasota Family
YMCA and the Sarasota
County School Board.
"If you understand
who is homeless now in
this population, there are
many faces out there,"


said Richard Martin,
executive director of the
Suncoast Partnership.
Most communities that
undertake a plan to end
homelessness concen-
trate on the chronically
homeless, people who
have been out on the
street for a year, or four or
more times in three years
(a federal government
definition). But organiz-
ers of this plan, which
was unveiled Wednes-
day, "didn't want to stop
there," Martin said.
"Chronic homelessness is
just one rung on a ladder
of people that are at risk.
There are unemployment
issues, poverty issues."
Thus the Sarasota
County plan focuses
on affordable housing,
economic stability and
anti-poverty measures
"because we did recog-
nize that there are mul-
tiple populations now
within 'homeless.'"
Plan organizers, a
group of mostly private


individuals that has
received moral support
- and a little funding
- from various local
governments, will seek
broader financial sup-
port from government as
part of its three-pronged
approach to ending
homelessness: capital
outlay for new facilities,
volunteerism and better
government policy.
Martin, a former Sara-
sota city commissioner,
said organizers have not
yet put a price tag on the
plan. That's something
they must do before
presenting it to local gov-
ernments next year and
asking for a portion of
the funding to come from
public coffers. Gulf Coast
Community Foundation
in Venice is one of several
foundations Martin
hopes will participate in
the funding effort.
Organizers are off to
a good start with volun-
teers. Some 600 people
participated in eight

number follow through
and help to implement it.
"The work that was
done has been an excel-
lent example of the com-
munity coming together
to work on this issue that
affects the entire commu-
nity," said County Com-
missioner Carolyn Mason,
who is vice chair of the
Suncoast Partnership
board. "There were some
segments of the commu-
nity absent in this process
to this point, so this is an


area that needs more work
as we move forward."
Getting better gov-
ernment policy means
encouraging city, county
and school board officials
to consider the impact
on homeless people
when they pass rules and
ordinances.
Possible results of the
plan that will require
some government funds
include the construction
of a one-stop day center
and additional emer-
gency shelter beds in
South County.

Prosecutor: Alachua County's meetings legal


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

Alachua County
commissioners did not
violate Florida's Govern-
ment-in-the-Sunshine
Law by conducting
informal meetings prior
to their regular meetings,
because each of the four
meetings investigated
was properly noticed
and open to the public,
the Alachua County state
attorney determined.


A group of Alachua
residents had com-
plained to State Attorney
Bill Cervone about those
meetings, which com-
missioners conducted
without agendas and
included no public
comment. Such meet-
ings were begun in the
late 1990s, prior to the
1999 arrival of Alachua
County Manager Randall
Reid.
Earlier this month
Reid was hired as


Sarasota County admin-
istrator, succeeding Jim
Ley, who parted ways
with Sarasota County
commissioners in May
after a 14-year run.
Reid is expected to start
working in Sarasota in
late January.
Critics say Alachua
commissioners hold
the meetings to crystal-
lize votes. Cervone said
previously that Reid was
in no way implicated in
his investigation. This


week Cervone said, in
a statement released
Tuesday, as reported
by the Gainesville Sun,
that "There is noth-
ing illegal or improper
about informal meet-
ings. They can serve a
useful purpose in allow-
ing free and full discus-
sion of an issue without
the time constraints
that a formal commis-
sion meeting might
impose, and are com-
pletely permissible so


long as properly noticed
and held in a public
setting."
Alachua commission-
ers have not conducted
an informal meeting for
several months. After
the allegations were
made, commissioners
approved measures to
make the informal meet-
ings more accessible to
the public.
"They were televised
and also streamed live
on the county's website,


where video and audio
archives also were avail-
able," the Gainesville Sun
reported.
Reid attends Alachua
County Commission
meetings, but said of
the informal gatherings,
"If there was a violation
of the Sunshine Law, I
would not be present at
it, because I don't attend
meetings that are viola-
tions of state law."

Home sales, prices go up


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

Both monthly home
sales and the average
price of homes sold in
the area increased in
November, according to
data released Wednes-
day by Florida Realtors,
which promotes Florida's
real estate industry.
The North Port-Bra-
denton-Sarasota MSA
saw a 17 percent increase
in home sales, from
699 in November of last
year to 816 last month.
The median sales price
increased from $149,300
to $152,100, a 2 percent
change.
Home sales are up
across the state, accord-
ing to Florida Real-
tors. There were 12,993
single-family, existing
homes sold in Florida in


November, compared to
11,664 in November of
last year, an 11 percent
increase. The median
sales price of homes sold
statewide was $130,100,
some $500 less than in
November 2010.
Prices rose year-over-
year in only five of 20
MSAs. Despite this, Flor-
ida Realtors chief econo-
mist John Tuccillo said in
a statement Wednesday
that "Statewide, both
sales and prices are
above where they were
this time last year. The
monthly median prices
have ticked down slightly
for the past few months,
but the overall trend
continues to show gains
year-over-year."
Real estate "is in a
mini-recovery," Tuccillo
said at the state asso-
ciation's 2012 Real Estate


and Economic Forecast
Conference earlier this
month in Orlando. "Sales
are trending up, listing
inventories are falling, the
supply of lender-related
properties has stabilized,
and we are seeing mul-
tiple offers on homes in
some local markets."
Florida Realtors also
reported that many Flor-
ida markets "are showing
sharp drops in inven-
tories of homes for sale
- a sign that demand is
picking up and prices are
stabilizing."
"That's a major
change from just a year
ago," Lawrence Yun,
chief economist for the
National Association of
Realtors, said earlier this
month. "Buyers have
stepped back into the
Florida market."

Treasured Venice



Theatre volunteer dies


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Well into her retire-
ment years, Harriett
Bartow still worked
full-time as a volun-
teer in Venice Theatre's
costume shop.
"She was one of those
ladies that was here five
days a week," costume
designer Nicholas Hart-
man said. "She would
come in late on Wednes-
days because that was
her nail day."
Hartman said he has
six to eight volunteers
who volunteer five days
a week. They turn out
an average of 200 new
costumes for a typi-
cal mainstage show. As
the theater builds its
stock of costumes to
rent, it concentrates on
making new costumes


Rather than
reworking
old ones
from ear-
v ..n lier shows,
he said.
Bartow
began
BARTOW volunteer-
ing at the
theater in 2001 and was
even there the day after
her husband, J. Kenwood
Bartow, died, son Bruce
Bartow said. That was
when she became a five-
day-a-week volunteer in
the costume shop.
"It is what kept her
going," he said.
Hartman said she built
costumes for "Little Shop
of Horrors" and all the
men's coats for "A Christ-
mas Carol" that first year
as full-time seamstress.
For her second show, she
worked with Hartman


to build the robe worn
by the Ghost of Christ-
mas Present. It was used
again last weekend for
the 12th annual Venice
Theatre production of
the show.
"If anyone was
stumped about how to
do something, she could
figure it out," he said.
"She was willing to do a
little bit of everything,
but she hated zippers.
She was very good at
making men's jackets
and she liked to make
kids' clothes."
"She was a tough one
... you could tell she had
that old school teacher
still in her," Hartman
said. "She could be a
tough old mean bird but
she really had a heart of
gold."

SUN NEWSPAPERS


OUR VIEW



Words ring true after more than 100 years


Eight-year-old Virginia O'Hanlon
wrote a letter to the editor of New
York's Sun, and the quick response
was printed as an unsigned edito-
rial Sept. 21, 1897. The work of
veteran newsman Francis Pharcellus
Church has since become history's
most reprinted newspaper editorial,
appearing in part or whole in dozens
of languages in books, movies and
other editorials, and on posters and
stamps.

Dear Editor: I am 8 years old.
Some of my little friends say there is
no Santa Claus.
Papa says, "If you see it in The Sun
it's so."
Please tell me the truth; is there a
Santa Claus?

Virginia O'Hanlon
115 West Ninety-Fifth Street


Virginia, your little friends are
wrong. They have been affected by
the skepticism of a skeptical age.
They do not believe except [what]
they see. They think that nothing can
be which is not comprehensible by
their little minds. All minds, Virginia,
whether they be men's or children's,
are little. In this great universe of
ours man is a mere insect, an ant,
in his intellect, as compared with
the boundless world about him, as
measured by the intelligence capable
of grasping the whole of truth and
knowledge.
Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa
Claus. He exists as certainly as love
and generosity and devotion exist,
and you know that they abound
and give to your life its highest
beauty and joy. Alas! how dreary
would be the world if there were no
Santa Claus. It would be as dreary


as if there were no Virginias. There
would be no childlike faith then, no
poetry, no romance to make toler-
able this existence. We should have
no enjoyment, except in sense and
sight. The eternal light with which
childhood fills the world would be
extinguished.
Not believe in Santa Claus! You
might as well not believe in fair-
ies! You might get your papa to hire
men to watch in all the chimneys on
Christmas Eve to catch Santa Claus,
but even if they did not see Santa
Claus coming down, what would
that prove? Nobody sees Santa Claus,
but that is no sign that there is no
Santa Claus. The most real things
in the world are those that neither
children nor men can see. Did you
ever see fairies dancing on the lawn?
Of course not, but that's no proof
that they are not there. Nobody can


conceive or imagine all the wonders
there are unseen and unseeable in
the world.
You may tear apart the baby's
rattle and see what makes the noise
inside, but there is a veil cover-
ing the unseen world which not
the strongest man, nor even the
united strength of all the strongest
men that ever lived, could tear
apart. Only faith, fancy, poetry,
love, romance, can push aside that
curtain and view and picture the
supernal beauty and glory beyond.
Is it all real? Ah, Virginia, in all this
world there is nothing else real and
abiding.
No Santa Claus! Thank God! he lives,
and he lives forever. A thousand years
from now, Virginia, nay, ten times
ten thousand years from now, he will
continue to make glad the heart of
childhood.


Merry Christmas!


OK, the not-so-lovely bed
decorated in festive holiday
lights and planted proudly in
my yard may not match the
beauty of all the decorations
we see in the area. However,
the kindness and joy of how
it got there will stay with me
forever.
We had elves visit our yard
one night and the festive
decorations were all that was
left behind. The elves aka
Karen Sheppard, Megan
Swing and Jan Bryant did a
fabulous job. I am sure other
elves Nicki Eastman, Karen
Evanicki and Joyce McCaffery
over at Eyes On You gave
lots of coaching. In any event,
stuff like this makes Christmas
memories ... and sets the stage
for getting even.
I went to Sandra Terry's
Christmas Party for the kids
last week at the Laurel Civic
Association and my heart was
warmed yet again. What an
outstanding job she and her
staff do all year, and this cel-
ebration for the kids was not
an exception. The kids earned
the presents they received
and a surprise, as Santa made
a special trip out there to
reinforce Sandra's great work.
A special group of men toiled
over homemade toys and
donated to the kids as well.
You know who you are and
from the bottom of my heart,
thank you!
Gulf Coast Community
Foundation supported the
Christmas Walk and gave out
$25 Give Cards for anyone
spending $100 in Venice. I got
mine; I hope each of you got
one and gave to one of the
important charities on the list.
The needs in this community
don't go away and the founda-
tion is a big part of making
sure the folks that need sup-
port receive it.
Kirstin Fulkerson from Gulf
Coast has volunteered to take
me to visit all of the enti-
ties the foundation serves.
We started last week and I
have to tell you the first four
groups were simply amazing.
I will chronicle our adven-
tures as we go, but be patient
- Kirstin is due in February.
Her condition does not slow
her down now, but I imagine
as we get closer to the due
date the number of stops will
not be as great. I will tell you
about the first four stops next
week. If you would like us to
visit, please call Kirstin to set
up some time.
I come from a corporate
world where the words "Merry
Christmas" no longer exist.
"Happy Holidays" is the


politically correct term. I have
found myself saying and even
writing "Happy Holidays" this
year as I have done for years.
My team here at the Gondo-
lier, of which I am very proud
and fond, and some readers
have been retraining me to
just enjoy the spirit of Christ-
mas, constantly reminding me
that it's Christmas, not just a
holiday.
This staff I am so proud
of also kidnapped an icon
of mine and sent me on an
amazing race to recover my
critter, sending me to some of
the dearest people in Ven-
ice for directions to the next
clue to finding the kidnapped
soul. (Well the kidnapping
may change the "dearest"
sentiment!)
You are probably wonder-
ing what on earth I am writing
about these things for, and I
think I owe you an explana-
tion. I believe in miracles both
small and incredible. I believe
both happened in Venice this
year at Christmastime. First
the incredible miracle a plane
fell out of the sky the other
day and the pilot walked away.
Additionally, not a soul on the
ground was injured. If that is
not an incredible Christmas
miracle, I don't know what
would be.
Look around hard enough
and you can see the signs of a
presence.
The small miracle is personal
but I need to share it.
A group of people from the
workplace, from business
places, from chance meet-
ings, from foundations and
from civic associations, with-
out realizing it, transformed
an old corporate go-through-
the-holiday-motions type
of guy. They brought back
memories of Christmas long
ago.
The laughter and unity of a
group kidnapping something
to generate a party that was
filled with smiles and genu-
ine warmth was incredibly
special. The incredible people
that run businesses here giv-
ing my daughter treasures that
she holds dear are nothing
short of awesome. Wendy
Deming baking me a dish of
candy I have not had since I
was a kid touched my heart
beyond belief. The parades
on land and sea brought joy
to all who attended and has
me thinking of how we can do
better next year. The people
who sacrifice their time and
effort to make these special
events are a huge part of my
small miracle.
So what is the fuss all about?
What is this miracle I speak
of? I'll just write it in two
words.
Merry Christmas! Whew, it's
been a long time.
Having said that, I must
add, "From our hearts over
here at the Venice Gon-
dolier to all of you, Merry
Christmas!"

Bad idea. The U.S. 41
Bypass widening project is
self-defeating. The five traf-
fic lights between East Ven-
ice Avenue and the bicycle
overpass would have to stay
red longer in order to accom-
modate the pedestrian traffic
crossing six lanes of highway.
Go back. I have been living
in the Venice area for more
than 20 years and I'm very dis-
appointed, as a lot of people
are, in the direction that the
Venice foundation has taken
in the past few years. I was
wondering if there is not a
legal way to remove the cur-
rent CEO and directors and
start it over in the way that
the foundation was originally
designed to be.
Won't work. I just heard
that Dr. Nancy Woodley was
not on the list of people rec-
ommended by Slavin for city
manager. Slavin couldn't even
pick a police chief, except
we lucked out. I understand
that because the previous
city manager resigned, that
the service this time was
free. It was worth every cent
she paid for it. I think that
it is incomprehensible that
she would pass up the best
candidate because a couple
of commissioners or council
people cannot see past their
nose. I just hope she does
well with that city manager
that's from out of the state
of Florida. That never works
well; it isn't going to work
well for Venice.
The help. Way to go, Venice.
Once again, NancyWoodley
is good enough to clean up
the mess you have in your
kitchen, but not good enough
to be invited to compete for a
seat at the dining-room table.
You all should be so proud ...
not!
Not ready. Are Florida and
Sarasota County really ready
to talk about protecting their
Gulf? Sure, we're ready to talk
about spills, offshore oil drill-
ing and fertilizer pollution
from the Mississippi River,
but we're not ready to talk
about Florida's love affair with


Let 'em

fuel-guzzling vehicles, plant-
ing more fertilizer-polluting
landscape or phosphate
contamination of some of our
own beaches.
Skate on. I agree with the
caller who thinks that the
Circus Arena could be made
into an ice rink. I think an
ice rink or a skating rink. It
would allow young people
and teenagers a nice place
to go to socialize. We had
roller rinks, ice rinks and high
school-held dances once or
twice a month. We dressed
up, no shorts or jeans. At the
ice cream parlors, we could
dance, drink sodas and eat
ice cream sundaes. All had
low prices. I'm in my late 80s,
and I think our young adults
deserve to have things to
do besides just going to the
beach that fits their bud-
gets. Even though I have no
grandchildren in the area,
I want them to have a nice,
safe place to go and enjoy
themselves.
More ideas. For the Circus
Arena, fencing competi-
tions or chess competitions
or smaller competitions like
ping-pong.
Her fault. This is about the
crash-victim's family contem-
plating a lawsuit. I think it's
ridiculous. They should be


responsible for their daugh-
ter's leaving school. There's
only so much the school can
do to keep your kid from
leaving school. We've all been
teenagers once and we've left
there; you know, that's just the
way the world is. I just think
they're looking for a free dollar
and looking to blame some-
body else.
The picture. Two things
are bringing this country, this
county and this city (the tax-
payers) to its knees: govern-
ments and unions. Examples:
the fire departments and their
golden parachutes at $80,000
a year at 50-plus-years-old
forever, thanks to the unions.
Police brutality, insubordina-
tion, breaking the laws and
can't be fired; sympathetic
lawyers, liberal judges; incred-
ible salary gifts by the sheriff's
office you get the picture.
Government employees are
those feeding off the system
i.e., lawyers and judges. Add
to that the liberal government
giving 19 percent of General
Motors to feed the union
system forever. Some day this
country will be run by the
unions for the government.
Who will have Reagan-like
guts to say that government
employees cannot be union-
ized? Look at education and
its union stronghold. And if
you don't get the picture by
now people, there is not much
hope.

WEEKEND EDITION DECEMBER 24, 2011


Wrap up the year with the perfect gift


Come this time of
year, you've undoubtedly
heard countless market-
ers, media outlets and
sales associates tell you
why something or other
is "the perfect gift." So
much so, perhaps, that
the phrase has begun to
ring hollow.
At my own risk, I would
like to suggest some cri-
teria for "the perfect gift."
See what you think:
a gift that reflects
your values and deepest
interests
a gift for a truly wor-
thy recipient
a gift that makes life
- or lives better
Sound good so far?
Let's add a bonus point:
a gift that fits "perfectly"
within your budget -
perhaps even giving you


money back.
So, what is this must-
get, can't-miss gift? A
charitable gift to ben-
efit your community, of
course. Here's why:
Reflecting values.
What better way to honor
and share your own
values than by support-
ing charitable work that
advances them? At Gulf
Coast Community Foun-
dation, we are fortunate
to assist people in doing
this every day. Witness-
ing the satisfaction they
derive sometimes
quiet, sometimes boister-
ous is a gift in itself.
Whether it's support-
ing your college, your
religious organization,
pressing local needs or
widespread social issues,
when you align your
charitable donations with
your core values, you can
make the good feeling of
giving back even better.
Worthy recipients. Ven-
ice is commonly known
for some rare qualities -
hometown charm, world-
class beaches, a well-
preserved past. If you
have spent even a short


time here, vital nonprofits
and tireless volunteers
probably top your list too.
Consider:
Venice Area Beauti-
fication Inc. just saw
completion last week of
the very final segment of
the Venetian Waterway
Park, its signature (but
far from only) project,
which has transformed
recreation along the
Intracoastal Waterway.
Venice Theatre and its
1,500-plus volunteers are
so well respected that
Venice will be repeat host
of the American Asso-
ciation of Community
Theatre's international
festival in 2014, a first in
the quadrennial festival's
history.
Our South County
Family YMCA serves
more than 20,000
residents annually with
everything from early
childhood education to
senior wellness. Always
ahead of the curve in
building a stronger com-
munity, the Y launched a
first-of-its-kind wellness-
based charter school this
year too.


You get the idea: Our
community is uncom-
monly rich with uncom-
monly good nonprofits.
Their work makes Venice
what it is. When you sup-
port the work of any of
these organizations, you
make Venice what it is,
and what you love.
Making a difference.
That's another phrase
that might be overused.
But in the end, it's what
we really want from a gift,
right? To leave someone
feeling better than before.
A charitable gift can
do that, every time. By
providing shelter and
childcare so a single mom
at Our Mother's House
can find a better job and
forge a better life for her
family. By providing new
computers so Venice Area
Mobile Meals can better
dispatch its 200 volun-
teers and serve even more
hot meals to homebound
neighbors. By providing
the professional expertise
so a cultural stalwart like
the Venice Symphony can
raise even more funds to
expand its inspirational
programming.


When you give through
a community founda-
tion, you can make that
kind of impact expo-
nential. By creating a
permanently endowed
charitable fund or con-
tributing to one of the
many we manage here
at Gulf Coast for local
nonprofits, your gift will
meet needs now and for
generations to come.
Now for your budget.
We work with donors and
their legal and financial
advisers every day to fig-
ure out the best ways to
integrate charitable gifts
into their overall finan-
cial plans. The rewards
of strategic charitable
giving, besides those
described above, can be
bigger gifts for charity
and tax advantages for
you and your heirs. They
can even include lifetime
income for you and loved
ones.
There is still time to
make a charitable gift
and earn a tax deduction
for this year. Gulf Coast is
here to help if you need
it. (By the way, we are
currently matching gifts


to South County Family Y
dollar for dollar up to
$10,000 in support of
the Y's community-giving
challenge.)
And even if you're not
ready to make a sizable
gift, I urge you to visit
GulfCoastGives.org. We
built this charitable-giv-
ing store on the premise
that anyone can be a
philanthropist. With as
little as a dollar, you can
help any of about 100
different local chari-
ties featured on the site,
many of them right here
in Venice. It's a great way
to learn about and help
meet urgent needs in
your own back yard.
Chances are, after you
donate, a kindred spirit
will follow in your foot-
steps. Before you know
it, you could be part of
our community's history,
having helped complete
another worthy local
project.
Sounds perfect to me.

TeriA Hansen is
president and CEO of
Gulf Coast Community
Foundation.


I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


He'll help you pack
Editor:
I was out of town when
the plane went down
near the airport. I could
almost hear the naysay-
ers of doom who have
recently come to town,
talking about how we
should move or eliminate
the airport.
These are people who
boarded an aircraft
and flew here, that was
piloted by someone who
most likely first had les-
sons similar to the ones
this pilot has been taking
in an airport similar to
ours here in Venice.
Yes, I am sure that
there will be much con-
versation regarding this
accident, but statistically
air travel remains the saf-
est way to travel.
May I suggest, in the
spirit of the season,
that we stop the bad-
mouthing of the ameni-
ties of our lovely town
and embrace them? In
so doing, I predict our
property values will
once again turn upward.
After all, no one wants
to live next to the
Grinch.
And for those who
moved here know-
ing that there was an
airport near their homes
and who now want
the airport moved or
eliminated, I have one
simple suggestion: Sell
your home and move to
a place where there are
no airports. Yes, I realize
you may have to drive or
take the bus there, but
I for one am willing to
take up a collection to
hi- -11Oru v

In 1968 I was elected
to the board of Venice
Hospital. I served on
it for 30 years. There I
joined the town's promi-
nent citizens who were
excited by plans for the
future of the hospital
and Venice.
Besides adding to
the growing hospital
and building the health
park and nursing home,
some members served
on other boards whose
organizations were also
expanding: the YMCA,
the art center and the
library, et al.
In the natural pro-
gression of things,
younger people took
over these positions.
They brought new ideas
and wider views of
their responsibilities.

In response to the
woman who wrote there
was a clear choice for
November because of
callousness, I disagree.
Instead of implying that
all is so hopeless and
that the only way out
of this downturn in the
economy is to raise taxes
even higher and justify-
ing doing so by calling
the wealthy callous, I
am looking forward to
new leadership that will
inspire our nation to
have confidence in itself
again.
I believe there are
new ideas and inven-
tions that will cre-
ate real employment


opportunities, but we
need leadership that
encourages the free-
dom needed to build
our nation again. Being
supportive of businesses
will create employ-
ment for Americans and
would help other world
economies as well as our
own.
I disagree that it is
obvious that one political
party is on the side of the
working-class Americans.
They may wish for us
to believe this, but with
all the scandals and the
billions that have been
lost, it appears all they
are interested in is filling
their own pockets with
our taxpayer dollars and
continuing the wasteful
pork spending cycle of
giving out favors to their
own very wealthy politi-
cal supporters.
I feel strongly that
in November, we need
to choose to reject the
hopeless view that we
are not able to recover
without ever-higher
taxes and choose to step
forward with new lead-
ership, not back.

Riverview edges Venice


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

"Let's start all over
again."
The words from Venice
High coach John Flynn
between the first and
second quarters sound
simple, but for a team to
listen is another story.
The Lady Indians did
listen, and battled back
from a scoreless first
quarter to give Riverview
a game.
Venice rallied from a
13-0 first-quarter deficit
only to come up short


in the fourth quarter as
the Lady Rams hung on
for a 38-33 victory on
Thursday in a nondis-
trict game at Riverview
High.
In their first meeting
on Nov. 30, Riverview
pulled out a 51-47 win in
the final 45 seconds.
The Lady Indians (5-8)
had opportunities and
plenty of shots at scoring
in the first quarter but
they come up short from
all ranges.
"We had a lot of good
looks," said Flynn.
"We actually executed


what we wanted to run
tonight. We said at the
beginning of the second
quarter, 'Forget about it.
Take a deep breath.' ...
We got back to what we
talked about doing."
Six players scored for
the Lady Rams (10-1) in
the first quarter.
That changed in the
second quarter.
Venice tallied its first
points with 7:25 left in
the quarter on a layup
off a rebound by Maggie
Flynn. Three minutes
went by before the Lady
Indians added two more
points from senior cen-
ter Laura Hackett.
Riverview's Gianna
Vastola scored on a drive
down the baseline with
4:04 to give the Lady
Rams a 15-4 lead.
It would be River-
view's only points of the
quarter.
"We are really doing
a great job of rotat-
ing and helping," said
Flynn about his defense.
"We are doing a much
better job of getting to
help defense, cutting
the floor in half and

understanding where
they are at and seeing
the ball."
Venice cut down its
turnovers from eight
in the first quarter to
just two in the second
while the Lady Indians'
defense forced six River-
view turnovers.
The results was a dra-
matic turnaround.
Hackett, who led all
scorers with 19 points,
scored eight points as
Venice outscored River-
view 12-2 in the quarter.


A layup off a rebound
by Hackett had the Lady
Indians only trailing
15-12 at halftime.
The teams remained
close throughout the
third quarter, and Venice
got within 24-23, on a
jumper by Hannah Rev-
els with 1:17 remaining.
"For everything I just
want to go nuts about,
they really do a few
good things," said Flynn.
"I think they may be

Venice Christian School sings for seniors


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR
Students at Venice Christian School
shared their Christmas spirit with resi-
dents in various assisted-living facilities
the week before their Christmas vacation.
Many enjoyed meeting the seniors, and
the feeling was mutual, according to staff
members at the facilities.
Mrs. Albert's high school photojournal-
ism students sang traditional Christmas
songs at Sunset Lake Village Assisted
Living Facility Dec. 12. VCS Principal Jerry
Frimmel presented a brief history lesson of
Christmas carols, focusing mainly on "Jin-
gle Bells," "Silent Night," "Joy to the World"
and "We Wish You a Merry Christmas."
Sunset Lake Administrator Penny Pau-
liks said it was excellent.
"The older kids did a great job and the
residents really enjoyed it," she said. "They
have been here every year since I've been
here, six years."
"They work for cookies," she added with
a chuckle.
At Clare Bridge Dec. 13, the ninth-
graders were joined by a few upperclass-
men to sing carols to the residents during
lunch. Sandy Spindler, sales and marketing
manager, gave the students a tour and
talked about the types of clients cared for
at the facility.
"We are a memory-care facility," Spin-
dler said.
Peoplewith Alzheimer's disease and de-
mentia are cared for in the secured facility.
"I told the students what happened to
the residents and why they are here," she
said.
"Some residents are 62 years old, others

are age 98. I wanted the kids to see them as
the real people. They used to be teachers,
some are parents, and it could happen to
their parents. So we toured the facility."
Spindler walked the students past the
residents' doors so they could see things
on the wall near their rooms that repre-
sented their lives. One man had a Purple
Heart hanging up, she said.
"I told the students that sometimes
these people hear a certain song and it
brings them a moment of success, of
memory. If a song can touch them for one
second and make them feel good, it's a
success. Some of the students teared up,"
she said.
On Dec. 14, Mrs. Barber's fourth-graders
entertained residents at Venetian Gardens
and gave out candy canes fashioned into
tiny reindeer. One boy fancied himself as
Rudolph and wore reindeer antlers and a
flashy red nose.
Cindy Gnegy, enrichment coordinator at
Venetian Gardens, said VCS students have
been going there for several years.
"The residents love it. They just beam
when the children are singing," Gnegy
said.
Mrs. Mattson's first-graders, led by high
schooler Sarah Cates, sang for seniors at
The Windsor of Venice Dec. 15 and gave
them handmade Christmas cards.
Marsha Fulmer, life enrichment coor-
dinator at The Windsor, said the children

were really cute.
"One resident said 'this is the most
beautiful thing you could do, bring chil-
dren into our community.' She had tears in
her eyes," Fulmer said.
All the students visited with the resi-


dents on their trips and were offered cook-
ies and refreshments by their hosts.

Musical brings home Aretha,


'60s soul


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR
Start with a bowl of
history from the tur-
bulent 1960s, add the
sounds of soulful Aretha
Franklin and spice it
up with the trials and
tribulations of love affairs
gone wrong and young
love developing, and
you've got yourself a hit.
That's what Nate Jacobs
did with his latest pro-
duction, "Love Sung in
the Key of Aretha," which
runs through Jan. 16 at
Westcoast Black Theatre
Troupe's home base at
1646 10th Way, Sarasota.
Jacobs, founder and


artistic director of WBTT,
wrote and directed the
musical. It's his "brain-
child," he said, and the
storyline takes a differ-
ent approach from his
customary revue style.
"This is not an auto-
biography of Aretha, but
it is my concept ... an
idea that came to me,"
he said.
The play carries the
theme of a troubled
nation that in the 1960s
experienced a civil rights
movement that fought
against racial discrimi-
nation and to for voting
rights for black Americans.
It's this time frame that
gave rise to the strength


of Franklin's music, which
allowed her to express her
power as a woman.
Franklin's music was
used to express the
frustration, trials and
tribulations that face
four African-American
women in a story about
sometimes happy and
sometimes sad events,
Jacobs said in a press
release.
Bringing snippets of
reality to the story, radio
broadcasts keep the
audience apprised of his-
tory in the making. One
of the most emotional
scenes is when the radio
announcer tells of the
shooting death of Martin


Luther King Jr. in 1968.
Several of the characters
had been serving on a
committee in support of
King and they showed
their shock and sorrow.
They sat around the
home of Mattie (Teresa
Stanley, an Equity actor),
grumbling and voicing
their anger and grief.
Much like Franklin's
recent come back, quell-
ing rumors that she had
died, Mattie took a posi-
tive stance and lifted up
the group.
The singing by Mat-
tie was as powerful as
Franklin's, but all of the
players made a strong
presentation. The acting


was realistic, as well, ful-
filling the story line, al-
beit moving along rather
quickly through time.
When Sharon (Alyssa
White), 16, became en-
gaged to Kevin (Mikeyy
Mendez), she looked up
right into his face and
sang "I love you." The
audience was right on
with the couple. And
when he was drafted and
left for Vietnam, Sharon
fell to the floor unable to
grapple with her emo-
tions, and some tears
began to well for some
audience members.
Typical of the compa-
ny, costumes were color-
ful and tastefully done,


thanks to Nikole Renae
Hamilton, assistant
costume designer. Music
director James Dodge II
provided top sounds and
Harry Bryce, choreogra-
pher, developed fantastic
dance scenes.
Tuesday through
Saturday shows start at
8 p.m. Sunday matinees
begin at 2 p.m. Single
tickets cost $28 and
season subscriptions are
available through the run
of this first show at a cost
of $75 for four shows.

Foundation gives


$170,033 in teacher grants


FROM EDUCATION FOUNDATION
OF SARASOTA COUNTY
More than 300 teach-
ers, sponsors, volun-
teers and school district
leaders celebrated the
22nd anniversary of
the Classroom Grant
Awards Dec. 7 at the
Chelsea Center,
Sarasota.
Dr. Carlotta Cooley,
interim executive direc-
tor of the Education
Foundation of Sarasota
County, announced
grants totaling $170,033
for 200 classroom
projects developed by
teachers from 49 public
schools in the district.
All Sarasota County
K-12 public school
teachers are eligible
to apply for awards
of up to $500 through
the Edge of Excellence
Classroom Grants
program. These funds
go beyond what school
budgets can provide,
giving teachers the
tools, materials and
supplies they need to
develop innovative
enrichment projects
and try new teaching
techniques.
A total 159 Edge of
Excellence classroom
grants went to district
schools. Venice schools
received 33 of the
grants and included
Garden Elementary,
Oak Park South, Pine
View, Taylor Ranch,
Venice Elementary,
Venice High and Venice
Middle schools.
This year, all teach-
ers were also eligible
to apply for larger
awards through the
Education Founda-
tion's new Exploration
Grants program. Area
arts, history and sci-
ence organizations are
developing educational
experiences tied closely
to state academic stan-


dards and curriculum
plans. These "explora-
tions" are posted on
a new website, EdEx-
ploreSRQ.com, which
was launched this
summer by Sarasota
County Schools and the
Patterson Foundation's
Cultural Connections
with Students Initiative.
Grants of up to $1,500
and expanded grants of
up to $5,000 are awarded
to teachers who develop
the most compelling
proposals for student
learning based on www.
EdExploreSRQ.com ex-
periences.
Thirty Exploration
Grants were handed out,
with five going to Venice
schools: Garden Elemen-
tary, Laurel Nokomis
and Venice Middle.
Eleven Expanded Ex-
ploration Grants went to
11 district schools, one
of which was Garden
Elementary.
Keynote speaker for
the event was Michelle
Robinson, southeast
region president for
Verizon, a major sponsor
of Education Founda-
tion initiatives. Rob-
inson told educators
that as a mother of two
young sons, a taxpayer
and business leader, "I
appreciate what you do,


every day, to inspire and
transform the lives of
our children."
Despite economic and
political challenges, she
said, "your dedication
and commitment must
not waver too much is
at stake."

By JUDITH EVANS
ST. Louis POST-DISPATCH

Watching LaurenVinciguer-
ra make biscuits is poetry in
motion.
She pours, mixes, rolls and
shapes with sureness and ef-
ficiency. When she's done, just
a few minutes after she started,
5 pounds of flour, a pound of
butter, a pound and a half of
cream cheese and a half-gallon
of buttermilk have been trans-
formed into 126 biscuits filling
a sheet pan, ready to go into
the oven.
As manager of Callie's
Charleston Biscuits, Vin-
ciguerra is used to baking in
quantity. Her bakery makes
about 80,000 biscuits a month,
all by hand.
"That's our forte," she says.
Nathalie Dupree takes a dif-
ferent tack. Her recipes make
enough biscuits to mound in
a bread basket, not to make a
mountain. Instead of but-
termilk, she mixes cream and
plain yogurt.
"The reality is, most people
have yogurt in the house more
than they have buttermilk,"
says Dupree, author with
Cynthia Graubart of the new
cookbook "Southern Biscuits"
(Gibbs Smith, $21.99).
Despite the differences, they
both make biscuits more by
feel than by measure. And both
generously shared their hints
and techniques recently at a
demonstration for food jour-
nalists in Charleston, S.C. So
whether you're making a large
batch or just a few, here are tips
to turn out light, tasty biscuits.
Most recipes call for cold
butter, butVinciguerra lets it
come to room temperature
before rubbing it into the flour.
Soft butter is easier on your
hands, and the biscuits won't
suffer.
Vinciguerra's biscuit dough
is studded with chunks of
cream cheese the size of small
peas. "We call this a little
insurance you bite into the
biscuit and there's a little bit of
love: the cream cheese."
Both bakers recommend


using a mixing bowl that's
wider than it is deep.
Use your hands to mix the
flour-butter mixture into the
liquid ingredients. "You stir
around, making an eddy, add-
ing more flour as you need it,"
Dupree says.
Dough "wet like lava"
makes the lightest biscuits,
Dupree says.
*When you're ready to clean
the dough off your hands, rub
them with dry flour. "You don't
want to put water on them -
they'll get sticky," Vinciguerra
says.
*Vinciguerra uses un-
bleached flour, a requirement
of Whole Foods, which sells
Callie's Charleston Biscuits.
(They're also available by mail
order from calliesbiscuits.
com.) Dupree uses bleached
flour because the biscuits bake
up whiter. Both use White Lily
self-rising flour, which has a
lower protein content than
flours sold in northern states.
Dupree doesn't sift flour.
"That's a nuisance. I simply
take a whisk or a fork and
lightly go through it." Stir
lightly, however, or you will
overaerate the flour. Spoon the
stirred flour from the bag or
canister into a dry measuring
cup, and level off the top with
a straight edge.
Most recipes instruct bak-
ers to cut the butter or other
fat into the flour when com-
bining them. "My motion is a
snap," Dupree says. "Cut is a
terrible word if you're a literal-
ist like my husband who
would get a scissors."

Callie's
Charleston biscuits
Yield: 120 biscuits (for 30 biscuits,
see note)
Melted unsalted butter, to prepare pans
15-pound bag White Lily self-rising flour
1 pound salted butter, at cool room
temperature
112 pounds cream cheese
12 gallon buttermilk (not nonfat), divided
Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Brush
two half-sheet pans or several smaller pans
with melted butter.
Set aside about 2 cups flour; pour the


remaining flour into a large bowl. Cut salted
butter into large chunks and add to bowl.
With your fingers, mix butter into flour until
sandy. When no chunks of butter remain, cut
cream cheese into large chunks and add to
the bowl. Work the mixture with your hands,
pulling the cream cheese into pieces about
the size of small peas.
Pour in 21 to 3 cups buttermilk. Use your
hand to scrape the flour mixture into the
buttermilk, folding and kneading. Add more
buttermilk as needed. You may not need the
entire 1 gallon. The dough should be moist
and sticky.
To clean your hands, rub the dough off
with some of the remaining dry flour. With
floured hands, scrape the dough from the
bowl onto a floured surface. (Unless you
have a large surface, roll out dough in three
or four batches.) Sprinkle dough with flour,
and roll out gently to about 1 inch thick.
Flour a 2-inch biscuit cutter, and push
straight down into the dough without
twisting. (You can twist the cutter gently
to remove it.) Arrange biscuits, with sides
touching, on pans. If desired, reroll the
dough scraps once. (Those biscuits won't be
as tender.)
Bake, rotating the pan once, until golden,
about 15 minutes.
Serve immediately or let cool completely,
then wrap well and freeze. To reheat frozen
biscuits, wrap a few in foil and bake at in
a preheated 450-degree oven for about
20 minutes or until hot. Open the foil and
let the tops brown for a few minutes, then
serve.
Per biscuit: 105 calories; 5 g fat; 3 g
saturated fat;15 mg cholesterol; 2 g protein;
12 g carbohydrate; 1 g sugar; 0.5 g fiber; 245
mg sodium; 70 mg calcium.
Tester's note: The amount of flour and
buttermilk used will vary according to the
humidity and other factors.
Note: To make 30 biscuits, use up to
5 cups flour; 1 cup (1 stick) butter; 6 ounces
cream cheese; and up to 2 cups buttermilk.

Yogurt and heavy
cream biscuits
Yield: 12 to 14 2-inch biscuits
Softened or melted butter
2%4 cups self-rising flour, divided (see
note)
3 cup heavy cream, divided
1/ cup plain yogurt (not reduced-fat or
nonfat)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
For biscuits with a soft exterior, select
an 8- or 9-inch cake pan, pizza pan or
ovenproof skillet. For biscuits with a crisp
exterior, select a baking sheet. Brush the


pan with butter.
Place 2 cups flour in a large bowl, prefer-
ably wider than it is deep. Using the back of
your hand, make a deep hollow in the center
of the flour. Stir together1 1 cup cream and
yogurt; pour into the hollow. Stirring with
a rubber spatula or large metal spoon, use
broad circular strokes to quickly pull the
flour into the liquid. Mix just until the dry
ingredients are moistened and the sticky
dough begins to pull away from the sides of
the bowl. If any flour remains on the bottom
and sides of the bowl, stir in 1 to 4 table-
spoons of the remaining cream,just enough
to incorporate the remaining flour into the
shaggy, wettish dough. (If the dough is too
wet, use more flour when shaping.)
Lightly sprinkle a board or other clean
surface with some of the remaining flour.
Turn the dough out onto the board and
sprinkle the top of the dough lightly with
flour. With floured hands, fold the dough in
half, and pat dough into a 1/3- to 1/2-inch
thick round, using a little additional flour
only if needed. Flour again and fold the
dough in half a second time. If the dough
is still clumpy, pat and fold a third time. Pat
the dough into a 12-inch-thick round for a
normal biscuit, 4-inch-thick for a tall biscuit
and 1-inch-thick for a giant biscuit. Brush
any visible flour from the top.
For each biscuit, dip a 2-inch-biscuit
cutter into the reserved flour and cut out
the biscuits, starting at the outside edge
and cutting close together, being careful
not to twist the cutter. The scraps may be
combined to make additional biscuits,
although those biscuits will be tougher.
Using a metal spatula if necessary, move
the biscuits to the pan or baking sheet.
Bake the biscuits on the top rack of the oven
for 10 to 14 minutes or until light golden
brown. After 6 minutes, rotate the pan from
front to back and check to see if the bottoms
are browning too quickly. If so, slide a baking
sheet underneath to add insulation.
Lightly brush the top of the biscuits with
butter. Invert the biscuits onto a plate and
lift off the pan; let cool slightly. Serve hot,
right side up.
Per biscuit (based on 14): 120 calories;
5 g fat; 3 g saturated fat; 20 mg cholesterol;
3 g protein; 16 g carbohydrate; 0.5 g sugar;
0.5 g fiber; 265 mg sodium; 85 mg calcium.
Note: Use a Southern brand of self-rising
flour, such as White Lily, or make your own:
For each cup, sift together cup cake flour,
12 cup all-purpose flour, 1/ to I teaspoon salt
and 11/ teaspoons baking powder. Whisk
lightly or stir with a fork before measuring.

cuits" by Nathalie Dupree and

'Heden' west by truck


By MARION HEDEN
GUEST WRITER

My husband's offer to
help our daughter and
son-in-law led us on a
cross-country adventure
"Now that you're mov-
ing to California, how
would you like us to rent
a truck and bring out all
the stuff you have in stor-
age in Florida?" Tom said
to them.
My first thought was
that he was suffering
from delusions.
"That'd be great!" my
son-in-law said.
Nothing more was
said for three months.
Then after a couple
of phone calls to our
daughter, on Jan. 12 my
husband picked up a
yellow 26-foot Penske
truck. It was bigger than I
ever imagined. The hood
of the truck was higher
than I am, and the truck
had a clearance of 12 feet
1 inch.
The next day the truck
was loaded, and on Jan. 14,
our adventure began.
My first challenge was
climbing into the cab of
the truck.
"Put your right hand
here, your left hand
there, your right foot
here and swing up," Tom
said.
Three times I tried
to swing up as he said.
Three times I remained
on the ground.
Finally, he gave me a
shove on my lower back-
side, and we were on our
way.
The truck sounded like
a threshing machine, and
the ride brought back
memories of horseback
riding.
A couple hours later
we stopped for fuel at a
truck stop. I went in and
bought one big breakfast
sandwich for the two of
us. I asked the cashier if
she had a plastic knife so
I could cut the sandwich;
she said that she had
only forks and spoons. A
truck driver behind me
offered me the use of his
knife.
"Thanks, but no
thanks," I said.
We made it to Mont-
gomery, Ala. the first day.
We had driven 550 miles.
We hoped to average 475
miles a day, so we were
pleased.
The next morning
when we left, the sun was
out and the temperature
was in the 30s.
Sitting up high, one
does get a different view.
That day I saw the color
of Col. Sanders' eyes on
a tall KFC sign. A bit past
Montgomery I was sur-
prised to see a Confed-
erate flag waving in the
wind. We both chuckled,
as we remembered how
our son-in-law, from
England, can't under-
stand why one has to
drive north to get to the
Deep South.
Now I don't under-
stand what the big
whoop is about diesel
engines. Going down-
hill is rather quiet, but
when Tom downshifted
to go up hill, the noise
increased and we'd jog
forward. Again it re-
minded me of horseback
riding when the horse
goes from trotting to
galloping.
Crossing into Missis-
sippi, we saw the state's
slogan "Mississippi is
Like Coming Home." The
highway became bump-
ier than the highways in
Alabama. We laughed,
as the bumpy highway
reminded us of our home
state, Minnesota.
When we passed Tupe-
lo, we found it interesting
to learn that is where


We awakened to snow on our last day in Albuquerque.


Elvis Presley was born.
We were in Tennes-
see long enough to hook
onto Interstate 40, a
route we would travel
for the next three days.
At the first stoplight in
Memphis, we found
ourselves surrounded
by trucks really big
trucks. We were glad that
we weren't in a compact
car.
The second night on
Interstate 40, we stopped
in Conway, Ark. The next
morning the temperature
was 15 degrees, 35 de-
grees colder that morn-
ing than the temperature
back home in Venice.
We took the northern
route to California, even
though it was 200 miles
longer than the southern
route, because there's far
less traffic. The bad news
was that the interstate
east of Oklahoma was
even worse than the high-
ways in Minnesota. The
good news was that the
only big city we drove by
was Oklahoma City, and
we could take the bypass
around it, so we didn't
even have to slow down.
As we drove through
Oklahoma we passed
various Indian reserva-
tions. We counted nine
very large, lovely casinos.
Soon, we were in Texas.
We'd driven through Tex-
as before and continue
to be amused by its rest
areas; there are picnic
tables under attractive
shelters, yet no toilets.
We decided that Texans
are obviously physiologi-
cally different than most
other people.
That night we stopped
in Shamrock, Texas. The
town is so remote that we
couldn't even get a signal
on our computer or use
our cellphone.
Checking out the next
morning, I asked the
clerk what the tempera-
ture was.
"Oh, the usual 60." she
said, "30 in the morning
and 30 at night."
We chuckled.
Driving through Texas,
we saw trucks and more
trucks with occasional
cars dispersed sparingly
between trucks. On both
sides of the highway as
far as the eye could see
- nothing. We did pass
one stockyard and were
glad there was no wind.
Periodically, we'd see
stretches of windmills,
more than we'd ever seen
before.
As we neared New
Mexico, we found our-
selves on top of a mesa.
In the distance were
splendid vistas. At noon
we crossed the border.
It was so warm that we
could finally take off our
jackets for the first time
in three days. New Mexi-
co is a beautiful state.
We were climbing
again. Evergreens told us
we were in high altitude.
Ahead we could see
snow-capped mountains.
Slowly, we were driving
up and up.
About noon everyday
when we were near a
truck stop, Tom would
say, "Let's eat here and
get gas." I would laugh


and correct him by say-
ing, "Let's eat here and
get fuel." That day when
we ordered a sandwich,
we were offered green
chilies with it. We were
told that in New Mexico,
you are usually offered
either red or green chilies
with sandwiches; the red
chilies are the hot ones.
While we were in line
to pay for our lunches,
a trucker caught my eye
and yelled over, "Real
women drive trucks."
Now thinking back, I
should've responded
with "Retired women
prefer Cadillacs."
An hour before we ar-
rived in Albuquerque, we
saw snow on both sides
of the highway. The last
half hour the ride was
a bit scary as we drove
down and down the side
of a mountain. I could
hear items rocking in the
back of the truck.
About 3 p.m. we arrived
at our hotel in Albuquer-
que. An hour later, our
son and family arrived.
We stayed at the hotel for
three nights and especial-
ly enjoyed the time with
our grandchildren.
The following Tues-
day morning when John
turned the key to the ig-
nition, the truck began to
cough and snort. There
were some anxious mo-
ments before the truck
decided to start.
Back on the highway,
the anxious moments be-
hind us, our minds were
back on New Mexico. I
had read that there are 22
Indian tribes still in the
state. I wasn't surprised
when we passed a lovely
casino/hotel complex,
and then two more.
Up and down we drove
through the foothills with
wide-open spaces on both
sides and brick red mesas
in the foreground. After
two hours on the road,
there was a cover of snow
and snow-capped moun-
tains on both sides of us.
During the day, in addi-
tion to the mountains, we
also saw five trains; one
train caught our attention
as it had four engines. It
must have needed all that
power to pull the train
through the mountains.
Before noon we
were in Arizona. At first
glance, it was evident
that Arizona is not as pic-
turesque as New Mexico.
What surprised us were
all the billboards, adver-
tising Indian arts, crafts,
rugs, turquoise, pottery,
dinosaur bones, petrified
wood, meteorites, knives,
swords, bookends, blan-
kets, cactus plants and,
of course, casinos.
Everywhere I looked
I saw brown. I know
beauty is in the eyes of
the beholder but I did
miss the green we have
in Florida.
Slowly driving up and
up again for a couple
of hours, we arrived
at Flagstaff, 6,000 feet
above sea level. An hour
later, as we were driving
down the curving roads
of the mountainside,
I could feel the truck
swaying. We passed a
sign that read "Curves

in five days.
- Mountain Grade" and
then there were three
signs that read "Runaway
Truck Ramps." The smell
of hot brakes was nause-
ating; the good news was
that it wasn't our brakes I
smelled.
Below us was a spec-
tacular view. We were at
4,000 feet and below us
was the city of Sedona,
a popular retirement
community. For another L


30 minutes as we contin-
ued our descent, my ears
were popping.
Finally we arrived at
Phoenix, still 1,000 feet
above sea level. Tall
cactuses welcomed us
to the city. The area was
greener than I expected,
and I then understood
why many snowbirds also
enjoy coming to Phoenix.
As we turned onto
the bypass around the
city, we found ourselves
in six lanes of bumper-
to-bumper traffic for
more than 20 minutes
before we reached our
hotel. That had been an
exhausting day.
During breakfast
the next morning, we
watched a beautiful
sunrise from the motel.
Wherever I looked I saw
mountains in the dis-
tance. Back in the truck,
as the speed limit was 75
miles per hour, most of
the vehicles were pass-
ing us. We passed signs
for "Blowing Dust" and
chuckled, We've never
seen a sign for "Blowing
Snow" in Minnesota.
That day we had a
terrible crosswind. It
sounded like I had a bird
chirping on my shoulder
as we drove along. Tom
assumed that the wind
noise was caused by
loose weather-stripping
on the vent window.
During the day, the
traffic became heavier
and heavier. At noon we
stopped at Love's Truck
Stop in Quartzsite, an
hour from Yuma, Ariz.
We saw RVs everywhere.
We couldn't believe it
when we read that nearly
a million RVs come here
every winter. Some park
in campsites, but most
park free in the desert.
We were given a schedule
of shows and events.
While waiting in line
to pay for the fuel, a

trucker behind me asked,
"Do you have the Love's
Reward Card? It's a great
deal. With a purchase of
50 gallons of gas, you're
entitled to a free shower."
He said that with so
many women truck driv-
ers these days, they do
have separate showers
for women.
A few minutes later I
had my very own Love's
Reward Card. The cashier
told me that even year-
round residents live in
RVs because in the sum-
mer, when the tempera-
ture hits 130 degrees, they
too leave town.
Back in our truck, we
left town even though
the temperature was
not that hot. We still had
many miles to go on our
cross-country journey
in a Penske truck, rather
than an RV.
Crossing into Califor-
nia, the border patrol
asked us to open the
back door of the truck.
As we were from
Florida, he said he was
checking for fire ants.
Back on the highway,
we couldn't believe all
the traffic. At times we
felt like we were driving
slowly in a parade. We
had been on the road
for five days and finally I
could climb into the cab


SUDOKU
FROM CLASSIFIED


by myself.
North of Palm Springs
we saw thousands of
windmills, the biggest
windmill farm we'd ever
seen. Later, nearing Ra-
monaValley, everything
looked so green. We drove
by acres of pastures. We
could smell that we were
in dairy country.
With the help of our
GPS, we finally arrived at
our daughter's home in
Lake Elsinore, Calif. The
town is in the foothills
of a canyon surrounded
by mountains. After Tom
turned off the key, he
looked at me with a smile
on his face.
"We made it!" he said.
"And now you never have
to climb into this Penske
truck again."
I just smiled. It was no
secret that I had been
reluctant to truck across
the country, but now I'm
glad we did it. The five
days on the road was
quite an adventure, and
I have enough memories
for a lifetime.

Marion and Tom
Heden are winter resi-
dents of Venice. During
the summer months, they
return to their homes-
tate of Minnesota unless
attacked by a case of
wanderlust.

FINE WHINES


Opposites attached


By BOB MUDGE
EDITOR

Because today is my
birthday (no presents,
please; just send cash), I
hope you will indulge me
by reading this column
about the two most im-
portant people in my life.
As faithful readers (Hi,
Marty!) know, I am the
father of two boys, one
who just turned 12 and
one who is 8 1/2. But
what even the most dedi-
cated reader could only
infer is that the two boys
have little in common
other than their DNA and
the fact they are carbon-
based life forms. How this
is possible seems to me to
be one of life's mysteries.
Evan, the 12-year-old, is
fairly tall for his age and,
poor kid, is build like me.
The other one, Tyler, is
average height or so, and
a stringbean. One lives
to eat (his motto: "I like
potatoes") and the other
eats to live barely (un-
less candy is involved).
Like me, Evan rarely if
ever gets cold. Tyler is apt
to wear long pants and
a long-sleeve shirt in the
dead of summer.
Again like me, Evan is
sort of shy, slow to warm
to new people. Tyler has
never met a stranger.
Sometimes he plays a
little hard to get, but he's
usually putting on a show
within a few minutes.
Evan prefers to size up


a situation before par-
ticipating, and he rarely
misses anything. Even
at 12 he has remarkable
insights and instincts.
Tyler pretty much oper-
ates on a "leap before you
look" basis. He gets my
vote, between the two
of them, as Most Likely
to be Caught on a Roof
Planning to Dive into a
Swimming Pool.
Evan is an excellent stu-
dent and is pretty consci-
entious about his studies.
His teachers love him
for that. Tyler has had a
harder time in school but
has made tremendous
progress over the last two
years and usually makes
the honor roll. We warn
his teachers each year
not to fall in love with
him and let him get away
with anything. They do
anyway.
Neither is much of
a sports fan, but Evan
did play youth soccer
and baseball. Tyler, not
surprisingly, took some
gymnastics classes. He
loves to walk around the
house practicing karate
moves, notwithstanding
the fact he's never had a
single lesson.
Both guys love to watch
TV, of course, but Evan
favors reality shows while
Tyler will usually pick
cartoons.
Tyler can fall asleep at
the drop of a hat pretty
much anywhere and rare-
ly sleeps past 7 a.m. Evan


is somewhere between
night owl and insomniac
and is already develop-
ing a teenager's morning
sleep pattern.
I can't even guess what
either boy will be when
he grows up, but I feel
comfortable saying Evan
likely will pursue some-
thing intellectual and
if Tyler doesn't at least
consider going into the
performing arts it will be
a shock.
There are, of course,
similarities. They're both
very caring and have
goofy senses of humor
(no clue where that came
from). They love video
games, especially ones
involving menace and
mayhem. They like to go
bowling and play disc
golf, though Tyler's en-
thusiasm tends to wane
mid-game.
They both like to read,
a relatively new interest of
Tyler's. Evan will devour
a book he's captivated
by, much like Tyler can
sit and play on my iPad
for hours almost without
blinking.
Most important, they
are both my buddies.
They make me laugh;
they make me cry; they
make me proud; and they
make life worth living.
Yes, Tyler, I love you.
And no, Evan, you do not
love me more. We'll call
it a tie.

SUN NEWSPAPERS 7B


The one and only


JUNE CASAGRANDE

Recently, a reader named
John wrote to tell me that
he saw this sentence in
USAWeekend: "Mush-
rooms are one of the only
vegetables rich in vitamin
D." He wrote, "I don't think
the 'one of the only' part is
correct." To John, "the one
vegetable" makes sense, as
does "the only vegetable."
But combine them in "one
of the only" and the result
seems wrong.
A lot of people have
heard that "one of the only"
is a no-no, but John's take
is interesting. The more
common view is not that
"one of the only" is redun-
dant but that it's illogical:
The only vegetable already
means the one vegetable,
the thinking goes. So saying
"one of the only vegetables"
is about as logical as saying
"one of the one vegetable."
Though this seems to be
a pretty widespread view,
usage and style guides
are surprisingly silent on
this topic. I checked nine
reference works, includ-
ing "Merriam-Webster's
Dictionary of English Us-
age" and "Garner's Modern
American Usage," and
none of them addressed


"one of the only." That tells
us that there's no official
"rule" against "one of the
only."
So then it's just a matter
of definition: Does "only"
refer only to singular
things? Or can it apply
to plurals, too? For that
question, we turn to a
dictionary.
According to "Merriam-
Webster's Collegiate
Dictionary," "only" has a
number of definitions. One
of them is "few," and here's
an example this dictionary
gives: "one of the only areas
not yet explored."
So not only do we know
that "only" can mean "few,"
the dictionary makers
themselves use "one of the
only."
Clearly, "one of the only"
is okay. But if we stop
to think about that last
Merriam-Webster defini-
tion, we can get right to the
heart of people's objection
to "one of the only": Why, in
a sentence like our USA To-
day excerpt, would you use
"only" when you could use
the far more specific and
far clearer "few"? That is, if
you mean "few," why would
you use a word like "only"
that has other possible defi-
nitions besides "few"?
In that sense, the oppo-
nents of "one of the only"
have a point. This term is
less precise and potentially
less clear than "one of the
few." So though "one of the
only" isn't wrong, "one of
the few" is often better.
Though none of the
reference books I checked
addressed "one of the only,"


most of them will give
you an earful on a more
common complaint about
"only": the idea that it must
be placed immediately next
to the word or phrase it
modifies.
Take the sentence "I only
saw three ducks." Anyone
who hears this knows what
the speaker meant: He did
not see four ducks, nor
did he see five or six. Only
three. But, according to one
view, the speaker is in error.
His "only," they will tell you,
is not modifying the num-
ber of ducks. It's modifying
the act of seeing. So "I only
saw" means I did not hear
them or smell them or
catch them or sing them a
lullaby. I only saw them.
But there exists no rule
saying so, and because
these uses of "only" are
almost always clear,
there's no need for a rule:
"The position of 'only' in
standard spoken English
is not fixed,'" Merriam's
usage guide says. But
when people sit down to
write, they tend to make
more conservative choices
about where to put "only."
"In current edited prose,"
the guide notes, "'only'
tends to be used in the
orthodox position im-
mediately before (or
sometimes after) the word
or words it modifies."
People don't need to be
told where to put "only."
They already know.

energy use can really im-
pact our bottom line. The
Energy Upgrade program
offers a lot of tips on how
to lower utility bills, which
means you'll have more
money for holiday cheer,"
said Lee Hayes Byron,
Sarasota County Sustain-
ability manager.
From inefficient, in-
candescent holiday lights
to doing more cooking
and baking than usual,
homeowners can use
a lot of energy over the
holidays and see their
utility bill rise because of
it. Having house guests
and kids home from
school usually leads to a
bigger demand on your
hot water heater, and
increased use of your
home's computers, tele-
visions, DVD players and
other electronic equip-
ment. All this activity

Big kitty seeks new home
Tamina is a 31/2-year-old female domestic shorthair. She has
beautiful grey and white fur and is a larger kitty, weighing in
at 14 pounds. She's a great indoor cat that has previously lived
with women. She has a great spirit and she is very energetic
at times. Sometimes shy, she can get more friendly once she
gets to know you. She gets along with other cats but likes
being the dominant cat. Visit Tamina at Suncoast Humane
Society, 6781 San Casa Drive, Englewood. Call 941-474-7884.


affects your energy use
and your utility bill.
One of Energy Up-
grade's tips is to switch
old, incandescent holi-
day light strings to light-


emitting diode lights.
They may cost a little
more up front but they
use up to 90 percent less
energy. LED lights put off
very little heat, so they


are safer to use.

ing tips, go to www.

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
S discuss the details of your dental care.
, Happy Holidays,
h Drs. Charles H. Davis, Brent C. Beyer, Kaya Aygen & Staff

Two very different competition cars


oday's column is
a tribute to two
race cars and their
owners who normally do
not get the respect they
deserve at cruise-ins or
auto shows.
On the tracks where
they run, these and
similar vehicles are in
the limelight from start
to finish. Just the sound
of the engine's roar and
aroma of the special
blended fuel increases
everyone's heartbeat. The
crowds truly enjoy seeing
them in motion, regard-
less what position they're
in at the end of a race,
and show it with cheers
or applause.
However powerful
competition machines
usually are relegated to
parking in the back row
away from where the
spectators roam at the
aforementioned nonrace
events. With this in mind
I decided my Christmas
present to the owners of
at least these two racers
is some good exposure,
hopefully resulting in
more people stopping by
to say hello in the future.
The Vinaccos, the
father/son owners of a
beautiful 1,000-horse-
power rail-type dragster,
are known to eat, sleep
and live to race this self-
built machine.
Behind the steering
wheel at Bradenton
Speedway getting in
line for a run with the
ultra-fast needle nose
(my name for them) race
car is son, Fred Vinacco,
who normally does the
driving. His father Chuck
and mother Carlyne are
always at the track to
help out and add sup-
port. Daughter, Lynda,
sister to Fred, sometimes
goes along, and even
drove one of the family's
first race cars, a 1978
Trans Am years ago.
The Vinacco Team is
known at drag strips
around the Sunshine
State and all the way to
New Hampshire. They
often frequent Braden-
ton, Gainesville and
Immokalee tracks.
For those who like
specs, here they are:
engine, Special Merlin
555-cubic-inch model,


_Duon ana Lee
r'4 Royston

designed off a big block
Chevrolet; length, 235
inches (almost 20 feet
long); weight, 1,850
pounds; speed, in the
1/4-mile mid-7-second
range, meaning it gets up
to 175 mph in that short
time.
Chuck reminded me
it's a labor of love to
own and maintain their
speed machine. Without
the mechanical skills
of Fred, a certified auto
mechanic/tech, and help
from his dad loading and
unloading this power-
ful dragster, plus their
combined many years of
experience in building it,
the costs would be pro-
hibitive. Fuel and entry
fees need to be paid, as
well as gas used in the
tow vehicle. They are
looking for sponsors to
help defray the expenses,
so as a business owner
or simply an individual
wanting positive expo-
sure, please contact me
and I'll match you up
with them.
This family resides
in Port Charlotte, and
enjoys meeting fans
and new people who
attend these kinds of
events. Watch for them
at drag race locations
and various auto-related
activities locally. Feel free
to ask about the car or
racing.

Nice '57 Chevy
Moving on to the most
unorthodox metal flake
blue 1957 Chevy you've
ever seen a one-of-
a-kind custom-built by
owner Tim Hix, 56, of
Parrish, Fla., about 15
miles north of Sarasota.
It's actually classified as a
road racer used mainly at
the Sebring, Homestead
and West Palm beach
speedways.
These courses are
rented by private car

clubs, to two of which he
belongs Safe Motor
Sports and CHIN Motor-
sports for perhaps a
full day. Hix and others
pay about a $350 fee
each to be allowed to
participate that reserved
day. There are no prizes
nor a checkered flag; the
object is to go fast yet not
bang into anyone. With a
custom-modified frame
and hot professionally
built race engine devel-
oping close to 600-plus
horsepower, four-wheel
disc brakes, a 9-inch Ford
Posi Trac rear end and
heavy-duty suspension
"it does handle well," Hix
said. The hood is unique
and always gets a laugh,
as it's made from an old
55 mph highway sign.
Hix said his machine
can hold its own and
then some against
Vipers, Cobras, Ferraris,
Porsches, Corvettes and
custom-builts. With dif-
ferent gearing, he once
ran in a drag race timed
in the low 10s at 150
mph. I suspect his deter-
mination, skilled driving
and high power-to-
weight ratio help support
high lap times. There
is simply not enough
space today to explain
everything about this
"bad" machine and tell
about the background of
Hix and his wife Vickie.
I chose to write up this
special couple over the

They were raised in
Lancaster, Ohio, prior to
moving to Florida for the
usual reason warm

Army Paratrooper for
four years, became
a contractor and, for
the past 25 years, has
remodeled houses.
Vickie has worked as an
assistant to a veterinar-
ian in Bradenton for 17
years and loves dogs,
especially big dogs.
Both own six prize-
winning English mas-
tiffs that weigh more
than 200 pounds, one


of which won Best of
Breed at the prestigious
Westminster Kennel
Club show in 2002.
(Their dogs may be seen

Tim himself is a trea-
sure hunter and showed
me his unpublished
book titled "My Treasure

where there are 1,000

Husband's shifting method shouldn't hurt the car


Dear Tom and Ray:
My 53-year-old husband
drove like an old man in
his 1997 Camry, but then
he gave the car to one
of our kids. He bought a
6-speed 2004 Acura TSX,
and his driving habits
changed drastically. He
drives too fast in it, no
longer stops for right
turns on red or at stop
signs, and takes all turns
like a racecar driver. I've
complained plenty, but
to no avail! As we rock-
eted toward a freeway
entrance, I told him,
"Mark my words, you're
going to get a speeding
ticket." Well, he did, two
days later, on Father's
Day. He was clocked at
97 mph on a road posted
at 55. The officer told
him it was a fine example
to be setting on Father's
Day (our kids were in
the car, too). That did
slow him down a little,
but his other bad driving
habits remain. His latest
- and thankfully it's not
a ticketable offense is
to shift into second, then
back into first before he
takes off from a stop. He
said he read that it's bet-
ter for the transmission
to do this. Is it? Has this
car ruined him for life?
Should I try harder to sti-
fle my vociferous nature
and just save money for
any future tickets? What
do you suggest? Please
help! Nikki
TOM: You have our
sympathies, Nikki.
Your husband has been
automotively repressed
for many years. And
now that he's been "un-
Camry-ed," he's cutting
loose. Kind of like a new
divorcee on a weekend in
Las Vegas with the girls.
RAY: For years, he's
been stuck driving a dull
car, probably a dark-gray
one. He's been shuf-
fling the kids around,
back and forth to soccer
games and piano lessons.
He's been losing his hair,
expanding at the waist
and having every woman
under 40 call him "sir."
TOM: And suddenly,
with this sportier new
car, the dam broke. He's
at a vulnerable age,
Nikki. That's the age
when men start to realize
that their youth disap-
peared about 10 years
ago. And they start grasp-
ing at ways to revive it.
You've heard of the term
"midlife crisis," right?
RAY: So I'd be tempted
to advise you to let him
act out, if it weren't for
the speeding. Going 97

mph endangers his life,
the lives of your kids
and the lives of other
innocent people on the
road. So that's really got
to stop. But if you get
him to promise to obey
the traffic laws and not
do crazy stuff like that
anymore, I'd let him shift
gears all he wants.
TOM: If you really put
your foot down (no pun
intended) and make him
stop, this craziness could
find other, more disturb-
ing or destructive outlets.
Like his young secretary,
Bubbles.
RAY: So, really, who
cares if he shifts into sec-
ond before shifting into
first? It's probably not
great for the transmis-
sion, but so what? At this
rate, he'll probably drive
into a telephone pole
before the transmission
goes, anyway.
TOM: So see if you
can negotiate a compro-
mise, Nikki. As long as
he obeys all traffic laws,
let him shift as often as
he wants and corner as
tightly as he pleases.
RAY: But if he signs up
for Weight Watchers and
shows up with hair plugs,
start worrying again.
Good luck, Nikki.

What could be
the cause of
disappearing fire?
Dear Tom and Ray:
Driving down the road in
my '89 Nissan pickup, I
smelled smoke. I as-
sumed it was outside and
rolled up the driver's-side
window and turned off
the fan. Immediately,
smoke came out of the
heater vents. It was so
thick that I could not see
out of the windshield. I
pulled over, stopped and
put on my emergency
blinkers. I grabbed my
handy fire extinguisher
and jumped out of the
truck. I stood there,
afraid to open the hood,
thinking air would make


the fire worse. When a
friend showed up, we
opened the hood and
could see nothing! I
drove it carefully to my
friend's house now no
smoke. I took it to the
mechanic, and he could
find nothing. What could
be the cause? Many
thanks! Sara
TOM: It was a sign
from above, Sara: Time
for a new truck!
RAY: No, I'm guess-
ing you burned up your
blower motor, Sara.
TOM: If the blower
motor started to fail, it
would draw too much
current and overheat.
That would cause the in-
sulation around its wires
to heat up and burn,
creating what? Smoke!
RAY: And that smoke
would come right
through the vents and
into the passenger com-
partment.
TOM: So take the truck
back to your mechanic
and ask him to remove
the blower motor and
give it a good sniff.
RAY: The wiring itself
is inside the motor, so it's
hard to inspect visually.
But if that motor was
the source of the smoke,
you'll be able to smell it
immediately.
TOM: If it smells like
smoke, then replacing
the blower motor ought
to solve your problem.
RAY: If the blower
motor isn't to blame,
then it's possible that
some piece of debris a
stick, some leaves or an
abandoned public-radio
tote bag got lodged
against the exhaust
system, perhaps between
the engine block and the
manifold, and that could
have caught fire. Maybe
it burned up entirely, or
fell out when you moved
the truck, in which case
there might not be any
evidence for your me-
chanic to find.
TOM: But have him
check again. Start with
the blower motor. It'd be
good to know what hap-
pened. I know you have
your fire extinguisher
handy, but fire can be
unpredictable. And if
whatever is in there
ignites again, the fire
could spread and take
your whole truck with it.
What a lucky break that
would be!

Turn signals can
fail intermittently
Dear Tom and Ray:
I currently have the


misfortune of needing
to drive a beat-up 1995
Volvo 850, which I share
with my husband, who
fancies himself an expert
on cars. As a general rule,
I try not to argue with
him on any subject in-
volving cars (or, for that
matter, about anything
else, since reason and
logic are not his strong
points). Alas, during this
past week, something
about this wretched Vol-
vo went wrong, forcing
me to open a dialogue
with Mr. Know-It-All-
About-Cars. Out of the
blue, the blinkers (the
right and left signals)
quit working. Once in a
while, the signals work,
but most of the time they
don't. My husband stub-
bornly refuses to believe
that they don't work.
He claims that they are
working just fine for him,
ergo I must be doing
something to keep them
from working! He says
he won't look into fixing
it unless he experiences
the problem himself.
Is it unusual for signals
to work intermittently?
Can you please help me,
ASAP? Terry
RAY: Gee, this guy
sounds like a real gem,
Terry. How do you keep
the other girls away from
him?
TOM: The blinkers ab-
solutely can fail intermit-
tently. A lot of electronic
parts fail that way. There
are three things that
could be at fault here.
RAY: The cheapest,
and easiest to fix, is
the hazard switch. The
hazard switch in this car
contains a relay, which
also is used by the direc-
tional switch. If the relay
is sticky, that can cause
the directionals to fail
sometimes.
TOM: It would cause
your hazard lights to fail,
too. So next time this
happens, try turning on
the hazard lights to see if
they're working normally.
If not, buy a new hazard-
light switch, gently pry
the old one out of its hole
in the dashboard, plug in
the new one and you're
done. That'll cost you
about $50.
RAY: The second possi-
bility is that the direc-
tional switch itself the
stalk that sticks out of
the steering column is
failing. That's also pretty
easy to fix, since most
Volvos of that era used


a dedicated directional
stalk, rather than the
multipurpose switches
(lights, high beams, etc.)
that you see on lots of
other cars. If that's the
part that's dying, you're
looking at spending
around $100.
TOM: And if it's neither
of those, then unfor-
tunately the problem
probably is in the igni-
tion switch. Volvo 850s
are famous for worn-out
ignition switches.
RAY: What happens is
that when you start the
car, you push the key
past the "run" position
to the "start" position
until it cranks and starts.
Then you let go of the
key, and it's supposed to
spring back to the "run"
position. But on these
cars, the key often will
not spring back all the
way. And since much
of the car's electrical
equipment runs through
the ignition switch, a
bad switch can lead to
all kinds of electrical
shenanigans.
TOM: You can test that
theory by lightly jiggling
the key in the ignition
next time the blinkers
fail. If you can get them
to work that way, you
may have found the
problem. But that's an
expensive part. It'll prob-
ably run you about $300.
RAY: And if none of
those ideas works, you'll
have to divorce your hus-
band and use the settle-
ment to buy a new car,
Terry. That'll cost HIM
$100,000. Remind him of
that if he keeps refusing
to help you.

Front-wheel-drive
trucks might be
on the way
Tom and Ray: Hi,
guys! I've always won-
dered why there aren't
any front-wheel-drive
pickups. I would think
they'd be a nice alterna-
tive to more-expensive
four-wheel-drive pick-
ups, and a lot easier to
handle than rear-wheel-
drive pickups on slippery
roads. Got any insights to
offer on this? Rick
RAY: It's been done,
Rick. Volkswagen made
a pickup version of its
front-wheel-drive Rabbit
from 1979 to 1982. You
can tell what a smashing
success that was by all
the Rabbit Pickups you
see on the road these
days!
TOM: It can be done,
of course. Toyota even


has a prototype of a
hybrid front-wheel-
drive pickup that's been
floating around for a
few years. So someone
probably will do it at
some point, especially
as the demand for better
fuel economy increases,
and pickup-truck sizes
decrease.
RAY: Such a truck
might be useful for
"light-duty picking up,"
but there are two design
issues that make it some-
what undesirable as a
traditional work truck.
TOM: First, there's very
little weight in the back
of a pickup, even with
rear-wheel drive. And
if you remove the drive
shaft and rear differen-
tial, you leave almost no
weight back there. That
means when the pickup
bed is empty, there's no
weight to keep the rear
wheels pushed down to
the ground.
RAY: That would make
the rear end of the pick-
up vulnerable to sliding
around which would
cause you to lose control
of the vehicle.
TOM: And while elec-
tronic stability control
can help, it's got to
start with something to
stabilize! You can deal
with that by increasing
the size of the passen-
ger cabin and adding
a real back seat and/or
rear doors. But then you
leave less room for the
bed.
RAY: The other prob-
lem is that when you
load up the bed with
heavy materials, you
weigh down the rear
axle and "lift weight" off
the front axle. So, if you
had a heavy load in a
front-wheel-drive pickup
truck, you could find
yourself in a situation
where you'd have a tough
time getting traction
from the front wheels.
TOM: So we may yet
see a front-wheel-drive
pickup truck at some
point. But it's going to
be a "lifestyle" vehicle
(i.e., designed to help
you look cool), not a real
work truck.

basics of walking 1 ER W HN..iNIM Y p. SIAL
KELLY, irNE 1 .. .ALIT.ENO


DEAR DR. DONO-
HUE: After reading your
article on walking, I went
out for my daily morn-
ing walk with two pe-
dometers on my waist.
When I returned home,
one pedometer showed
10,090 steps, and the
other, 9,971. The pace of
the walking was 125 steps
a minute. I am 5 feet 5
inches tall, weigh 137
pounds and am 81 years
old.
When you say 100
steps a minute is the goal
for walking, I think it is
much too low a target for
average American males,
who are taller and heavier
than I. A.A.
ANSWER: You must be
an engineer. Few would
approach this investiga-
tion with such precision
and with readings from
two pedometers. My hat's
off to you.
Walking is life-ex-
tending, heart-saving
and blood-pressure-
lowering. The materials
I'm quoting come from
reputable journals ed-
ited by professionals, so
I think they can be taken
as true. Walking nine
miles a week lowers the
death rate by 22 percent.
Walking 30 minutes a
day lowers the risk of
heart-artery disease
by 18 percent. Walk-
ing three hours a week
reduces the risk of heart
attack by 35 percent, and
stroke by 34 percent.
Walking time is only
one aspect that influ-
ences health. The pace
of walking is equally
important. Most au-
thorities cite a pace of
100 steps a minute as
constituting brisk walk-
ing, the kind of walking
that provides health
benefits. A.A. undoubt-
edly is correct. Every
walker covers a differ-
ent distance with each
step, so the guidelines
are imprecise estimates.
They do, however, have
enough bases from
testing to give people
a general approach as
to the distance and
speed of walking. One
hundred steps a minute
burns, on average,
100 calories another
generalization.
No one is going to
count steps. It would
drive people crazy. Like
A.A., people should
consider a pedometer to
keep track of how many
steps are taken. Pedom-
eters are not expensive.
It takes most people
2,000 steps to cover a
mile. The best walk-
ing form is done with

chin up, eyes forward,
shoulders squared,
back straight, belly flat
and arms bent at the
elbows. Initiate the step
by pushing off with the
toes, and end it by land-
ing on the heels.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
When I was a little girl,
my mother used to warn
me about chilblains all
the time. I think it was
her way of frightening me
into dressing the way she
wanted me to dress for
winter.
These days I never
hear that word. What are
chilblains? Do people still
get them? Did my mother
make up the word? -
D.G.
ANSWER: "Chilblain"
is a real word. Your mom
didn't make it up.
It's a cold-weather
injury that most often
strikes the toes, and less
often the fingers. It comes
about from intense and
prolonged spasms of
blood vessels. Blood
circulation is greatly
decreased. This mostly
happens when weather
is cold but not freezing.
Don't ask me to explain
that. I can't.
Skin changes might
not occur until 12 to 24
hours after exposure.
They consist of purple
patches on the toes'
skin. They itch or give
rise to burning pain.
Warmth gets rid of them.
Women between the
ages of 15 and 30 are the
ones most susceptible to
this kind of cold injury.
Chilblain has another
name, pernioo." I never
hear either word
mentioned.
DEAR DR. DONO-
HUE: I read that more
heart attacks occur in
winter than in sum-
mer. Why? If you dress
warmly, does that pro-
tect you? N.C.
ANSWER: Cold weather
is a stress on the body
and the heart. The heart
has to work harder to
keep the body warm by
pumping more blood
than it ordinarily does.
That extra effort is too
much for hearts not in
the best of shape. Dress-
ing warmly lessens the
risk.

Making vanilla extract


Dear Heloise: Can you
please provide the home
recipe for making va-
nilla extract? Cindy, via
email
Yes, I can, and it's a fun
project to do, too! This is
fairly easy to make. Start
with a 1-liter bottle of either
vodka or white rum and
two vanilla beans, which
you can find in most stores.
The vanilla flavor comes
from the seed, not the bean!
To expose the seeds,
carefully cut open each
vanilla bean lengthwise. If
they are hard to cut, soak
them in the vodka or rum
until they become soft.
Next, put them in the
rum or vodka, seal the
bottle and let the mixture
cure for at least 30 days.
Then taste to see if it is
strong enough. If not, let
it sit for a few more days
until you are satisfied
with the flavor.
As you use the extract,
you can replace the liquid
by adding more vodka or
rum. Once the flavor is not
as strong, use what is left
and make a new batch.
Enjoy this added flavor
in your baked goods or
morning coffee. Heloise

Pet column
Dear Heloise: I have
read your column in vari-
ous newspapers in the cit-
ies we've lived in and have
very much enjoyed your
pet hints. They were very
interesting and informa-
tive. I learned a lot about
animals. Because I am a
dog lover, the dog hints


Hints from Heloise

were especially useful.
I am very disappointed
that you have discontin-
ued this column. Please
start featuring these hints
again for all of us pet
lovers. Barbara Fearn,
Baraboo, Wis.
Barbara, thanks for the
feedback. I didn't really
discontinue the column;
the pet hints are now
sprinkled throughout
the weekly column. The
Saturday column still has
Pet Pals (see below), so
please continue to read
my column! Heloise

Colorful pillowcase
Dear Heloise: I like to
sleep on my own pillow
when we travel, but my
white pillowcase tends to
blend in with the hotel's
linens, and I have left
it behind on occasion.
Now I use an old, brightly
colored or patterned pil-
lowcase that is difficult
to overlook when we are
packing up. Bill and
Anita, via email
My similar travel hint:
I pack two "faux satin"
black pillowcases to use
- I can't miss them! -

Wife demurs advances made

by men reconnecting online


DEAR ABBY: I have been
happily married for more
than 20 years. I joined an
online social network to
keep in touch with family,
friends and my kids who
are in college. I love the
convenience, but I'm in a
quandary.
A number of men from
my past (some I dated and
some not) have contacted
me online with their phone
numbers and asked me to
call them. I was flattered at
first, but now I think phone
communication would be
inviting trouble.
I politely inform friends
who push the issue that I'm
happy to catch up online,
but out of respect for my
husband and my marriage
I don't call men who send
me their numbers. Most of
them then drop further at-
tempts at communication;
others do not.
My problem is it con-
tinues to happen. I don't
remember being that popu-
lar when I was young, so it
has caught me off guard. I
suspended my account sev-
eral times, but reactivated it
because I miss the connec-
tion with extended family
and friends.
I'm getting turned off to
responding to any "friend"
requests anymore because
it seems that most men just
want to recapture some
youthful fantasy. How do
I handle this? BLAST
FROM THE PAST
DEAR BLAST: You are
handling it very well just the
way you are.
DEAR ABBY: My boy-
friend, "Ian," and I are in our
30s. Although we have been
together for seven months,
his family is not yet over
his ex-wife. They invite her
for dinner, share weekend
visitation with land's daughter
with her, and remind him
constantly that they are dis-
appointed with his decision.
Ian has moved on. He
would like to cut all ties with
his ex, but his family won't
allow it. He's afraid if he puts
his foot down it will destroy
the already strained rela-
tionship he has with them.
My family accepts Ian,
but his refuses to admit I
exist. How do we deal with
this? It's plan's life, and he has
the right to choose who he
spends it with.
- INVISIBLEWOMAN IN
PHILLY


Dear Abby

DEAR INVISIBLE
WOMAN: Toughen up, grit
your teeth and continue the
relationship. Remember,
because a child is involved,
Ian cannot completely move
on. As for his parents, ac-
cept that their grandchild's
mother will always be a part
of their lives so get used to
it. If this romance leads to
the altar, you will meet land's
family at some point.
DEAR ABBY: My friend
"Cailin" is very sensitive and
not very accepting. She's
also unforgiving and tends
to get into stupid arguments
about nothing. Since the
sixth grade it has gotten
even worse.
There is a new girl in
school who seems to be a
really nice, friendly person.
Cailin was the first one to
meet her and she wouldn't
let anyone else sit with
them.
I told my mom about it
and she said to just sit down
with them both. Today I
did what my mom said
to do. When Cailin saw us
together, she was steaming.
She ignored me for the rest
of the day.
I don't want to keep the
new girl, just share her. Why
can't Cailin and I both be
friends with her? Is there
any way I could talk to her?
I'm considering talking to
the dean of students. Would
this be OK?-SHARING
FRIENDS IN COLORADO
DEAR SHARING
FRIENDS: Cailin is imma-
ture, insecure and pos-
sessive. She's afraid that if
the new girl talks to other
people, the girl will no lon-
ger like and depend on her.
That's why she was angry
when you sat down with
them.
By all means discuss this
with the dean of students.
The dean may have a solu-
tion that will allow the new
girl a chance to make friends
with more of her classmates
-including you.


"A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly:
and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a
brother"- Proverbs 18:24
A true friend is one who stands by even when you
don't want him. The Lord is such a friend. "I have
loved thee with an everlasting love."
