Pilot dies in plane crash at airport

Black smoke billowed
from a downed plane at
Venice Municipal Airport
Monday afternoon.
Venice police and fire
departments responded
to the crash of a 1965 Aero
Commander, twin engine
plane around 2 p.m. The
engine fire took nearly
an hour to bring under
control before detectives
could begin to investigate
the physical scene.


Fla., and sole person on
board, died in the crash.
"I saw the whole thing,"
Joe Cicogna said. "It went
right through those trees.
There was no noise."
Cicogna was at the
Venice Fishing Pier when
he witnessed the plane
fly silently past the pier,
heading for the two
tallest trees visible from
there and approximately
even with the south end
of the airport. He used


straight down, nose first
toward the ground with
the wings seeming to flap
right and left.
"A friend went and saw
where it ended," Cicogna
said. "It was at the festi-
val grounds. I could hear
the sirens while he was
talking to me."
The black smoke
changed to white, he
said.

lot of time at the fishing

one go down in the gulf a
few years ago.
Tom Jack, who lives
just east of the airport in
Venice Gardens said he

Martha Halas was diagnosed
with three types of cancer in
2008.
At first she found the news
devastating, but the seasonal

about to let it get the best of her.


"You have a choice to be

"You can either get in the

your head and focus on death
- and I didn't want to do

Let there be lights

Holiday helper and neighbor David Cox, left, Sandy Enander, her husband, Bob, and son David pose in front of the
entrance to their display of lights located on their Mission Valley property Christmas eve. The Enanders have been
displaying their elaborate Christmas light show for over 15 years now and see up to 1,500 visitors in a single day.
The lights stay up for 30 days and Bob Enander estimates that more than 15,000 individuals will walk through
the property in that time. The display consists of 300 pieces using 200,000 individual light bulbs. The display has
become not only a family tradition, but a local attraction with people coming from all over the region to see it for
themselves. The lights get turned off on Jan. 7, but until then the attraction is open to the public between 6 p.m.
and 10 p.m.


Report clears Buchanan, questions credibility


By MARC R. MASFERRER
BRADENTON HERALD

The Federal Elections Com-
mission had doubts about Rep.
Vern Buchanan's credibility on
certain "background issues"
related to its investigation of
his campaign finances, but
they were not enough to keep
commissioners from voting
unanimously to clear him of
any wrongdoing, according to
newly released documents.
In a final report on its
investigation dated Jan. 25,
2011, but not released until
this week, the FEC's general
counsel wrote that because of
"significant concerns" about
the credibility of Sam Kazran,
Buchanan's former business
partner and chief accuser, it
was recommending the FEC
take no action against the
congressman.
The FEC had been inves-
tigating allegations that


Buchanan,
R-Sarasota, had
directed Kazran
to improperly
reimburse his
employees for
contributions
they made to
Buchanan's BUCHANAN
congressional
campaigns from 2005 to 2007.
The evidence, however, did
not back up the charges.
"Given the new information
relating to Kazran's credibility,
we believe that his testimony
regarding Buchanan's instruc-
tion to reimburse contribu-
tions ... needs strong cor-
roboration to be considered
sufficient enough to say that it
is more likely than not that his
version of the facts is true," the
report states. "As explained in
this report, the record does not
contain such corroboration."
In an unusual display of
bipartisan unanimity, the


FEC's three Democratic
members on Feb. 1 joined two
Republicans in voting to close
the investigation; the third
Republican member recused
himself from the case and did
not vote.
The FEC had earlier
informed Buchanan of its
decision, but it wasn't until this
week that certain documents
in the case were made public.
The FEC has fined Kazran's
dealership, Hyundai of North
Jacksonville, $67,900 an
amount equal to the illegal
contributions. Kazran also
faces a $67,900 fine.
Buchanan's attorney, William
McGinley with the Washington
law firm of Patton Boggs, said
the FEC's action vote amounts
to a complete exoneration of
Buchanan.
The FEC "dropped the mat-
ter in a unanimous vote," he
said Wednesday.
The FEC general counsel's


final report details doubts
raised about Kazran's cred-
ibility and notes that many
of the allegations he made
about Buchanan could not be
corroborated.
But the report also raises
questions about Buchanan's
credibility on what it calls
"background issues" in the
case, noting his testimony in a
deposition.
For example, Buchanan tes-
tified he could not remember
"one way or another" whether
he asked Kazran to raise
money for his 2006 congres-
sional campaign, according to
the report.
"There is evidence Buchanan
did ask, and it raises legitimate
question as to Buchanan's
credibility that he could not
admit this innocuous fact," the
report states.
"(W)e think that Buchan-
an's inability to remem-
ber basic facts as to these


uncontroversial, routine issues
detracts from his credibility.
Nevertheless, these inconsis-
tencies on background issues
do not necessarily show that
Buchanan directed Kazran to
reimburse contributions."
Buchanan's lawyers have
said Kazran did not start
accusing the congressman of
orchestrating the illegal con-
tributions until after he quit
paying off a $2.5 million busi-
ness loan he had received from
Buchanan. When it learned of
the possible campaign finance
violations by Kazran, Buchan-
an's campaign reported them
to the FEC.
The agency investigated pos-
sible wrongdoing by Buchanan
and his campaign for more
than two years, interview-
ing numerous witnesses and
gathering thousands of pages
of documents.

Korea veterans talk about 'forgotten war'


By ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER

Shortly after World War
II ended in 1945 and be-
fore the televised coverage
of Vietnam brought that
war into people's homes,
there was the Korean War.
Recently, four veterans
of the three-year conflict
spoke to students and the
public at State College of
Florida, Sarasota-Mana-
tee's South Venice campus.
"The U.S. kind of
blanked it out, because
it happened during the
infancy of television,"
said Tom "Skip" Hannon,
a Purple Heart recipient
who was drafted into the
Army at 18.
Hannon, along with
Army veterans Richard
Caverly, Roy Robertson
and Billy Skinner all
members of the Korean
War Veterans Association,
Manasota Chapter 199 -
gave a basic history of the
conflict and shared stories
ranging from hilarious to
heart-wrenching dur-
ing the hour and a half


presentation, at times
inspiring applause from
those gathered.
Caverly was captured by
the Chinese who were
fighting along with the
North Korean troops -
early in the war.
"Being a POW was the
worst thing that happened
in my whole life," he said.
They were given no
food for the first three
days and were forced to
march for days on end,
often switching direc-
tions, all while carrying
an injured fellow soldier
named Robert Wilcox
until they could carry him
no farther.
"Wilcox, I never seen
him again," Caverly said,
adding that he later
reported the man as miss-
ing. "I watch for his body
to come back, but it never
does."
Robertson described
the last day of the war,
July 27, 1953.
"We had heard the
treaty was supposed to
go into effect at 10 p.m.,"
he said. "On the day of


Richard Caverly, who was in the Army Infantry from January
1949 until Oct 1953, spoke about the 33 months he spent as a
POW in North Korea.


KEY DATES IN
THE KOREAN WAR
Aug. 15, 1945: Korea is divided into U.S. (South
Korea) and Soviet (North Korea) occupation zones
along the 38th parallel.
March 1947: The Truman Doctrine, which stated
the U.S. would aid countries resisting communism and
working to stop its expansion, becomes U.S. policy.
June 25,1950: The North Korean People's Army
invades South Korea.
June 27,1950: The United Nations asks member
countries to aid the Republic of Korea and the U.S.
announces it will intervene.
Sept. 15, 1950: Gen. Douglas MacArthur oversees
the landing of U.N. forces at Inchon, recapturing the


the 27th, (the Chinese)
started shelling us with
everything they had. Then
at 10 p.m., they turned
on the lights and played
loud music until dawn.
And at daybreak, everyone
was wandering around in
no-man's land like no one
had ever been shooting at
each other the day before.
It was surreal."
The veterans also spoke
of the draft and conscien-
tious objectors, and the
current state of the De-
militarized Zone, and de-
scribed the torrential rain
and freezing conditions
soldiers experienced -
Skinner kept his Claymore
mines under his arms to
keep them from freez-
ing and retired to Florida
because of the chill he
experienced there.
"There's no place as
cold as Korea in winter,"
he said, though the Ko-
rean people he met were
very kind. "I'm going back
in June or July of this com-
ing year to see how it's
changed in 52 years."
Marcy Mulligan of
North Port, who plans to
major in early childhood
education, was visibly
moved during Caverly's
story.
"My father served in
World War II," Mulligan
said, adding that the por-
tion of the talk that most
affected her was "when
he talked about being
captured and carrying (his
injured comrade) as far as
they could."
Michael Rogers, as-
sistant professor of social
and behavioral science at
SCF, organized the event.
"I wanted to bring his-
tory to life for my history
classes," he said. "We had
just finished a discussion
of the Korean War, and
what better way to finish?"
SCF's History/Political
Science and Veterans Ex-
change clubs played host
to the free event, which
was open to the public.

2011 a good year for sea turtle nesting


By DANA SANCHEZ
STAFF WRITER

While it wasn't a record
year, sea turtle nesting was
up in 2011, with the high-
est nest count in a decade,
especially on the densely
populated southern end of
Manasota Key.
Local turtle nest patrol and
state permit holders attribute
the uptick to increased public
awareness of sea turtles and
the need for conservation,
along with reduced lighting on
beaches at night.
Manasota Key had 2,120 log-
gerhead nests compared to the
last bumper crop, of 3,000 in
1998, according to data
collected by the Coastal
Wildlife Club.
Despite the good news,
wildlife officials say sea turtle
nesting has seen a downward
decline for the last 20 years
and it's too early to say if
this is the start of an upward
trend.
"The hope is that conserva-
tion efforts are helping sea
turtles," said Anne Meylan, a
researcher with Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission.
Statewide, nest counts are
not completed for 2011, but
Meylan said leatherback and


green sea turtle nesting -
rarely seen on the Gulf Coast
or on area beaches are up
dramatically.
Loggerheads, common on
area beaches, did not see as
dramatic an increase. Tradi-
tionally, loggerheads make
this one of the most densely
populated areas for turtle
nesting on the Gulf Coast.
Next year, thanks to a grant,
local turtle patrol volunteers
will hand out postcards
educating beach walkers they
encounter during their hun-
dreds of hours spent checking
nests and collecting data
during turtle season, which
runs May 1 to Oct. 31.
Meanwhile, the state attor-
ney's office continued its case in
2011 against Juanita Schultz, a
Manasota Key beachfront resi-
dent accused of interfering with
a turtle nest in 2010. Schultz and
another woman were arrested
and charged with a felony after
a witness reported they kicked
sand from a nest and leveled it.
Schultz could go to trial as early
as January.
The good news is that the
community at large both
residents and visitors has
been enormously supportive of
turtle conservation, says Wilma
Katz, vice president of Coastal
Wildlife Club.

2011 was a banner year for sea turtle nesting on Manasota Key, with nesting at its highest level in a decade,
according to local turtle nest patrollers.


"So even if those turtles
shifted and came from some-
place else, the fact remains
they came to Manasota Key
and on Manasota Key we took
good care of them," Katz said.
"If they're going to come here,
its crucial that they're safe."


Life is precarious for the
turtles. A hatchling's odds of
surviving to adulthood are one
in 1,000 to 5,000, wildlife
officials say.
"We've got beaches 20 feet
wide and often those nests
hatch," Katz said. "They're


so close to people, they're
unavoidable and fortunately,
people embrace them. We've
got this wonderful resource
and so many people know
that."

School board nixes two charter school proposals


By STEVEN J. SMITH
SUN CORRESPONDENT

The Sarasota County
School Board unani-
mously rejected appli-
cations Tuesday from
two proposed charter
schools, Global Outreach
Academy of Sarasota
and Threefold Charter
School, on the grounds
that they did not con-
form sufficiently to
standards set forth by its
charter review commit-
tee and the state.
Three other charter
school applicants, Sara-
sota Charter Academy
of Excellence, Sarasota
School for Social Justice
and the Learning Place
Academy, voluntarily
withdrew their applica-
tions before the meeting
after learning that the
charter review com-
mittee did not endorse
them.
School Board Member
Carol Todd pointed out
that Global Outreach,
planned for North Port,
failed to fully meet
56 percent of the charter
school criteria, while
Threefold failed to meet
94 percent.
Global Outreach
planned to teach Rus-
sian to North Port chil-
dren while also empha-
sizing Russian cultural
studies.
School Board Member
Jane Goodwin defended
the denial.
"There are nine char-
ter schools in Sarasota


County right now, and
to open a public school
and to abide by the
statutes of the state of
Florida is not an easy
task," Goodwin said.
"There are 19 criteria
that applicants must
meet. ... I believe the
two most important of
these are curriculum
and budget. If their goal
isn't funded, they won't
be successful."
According to the
charter review com-
mittee summary, the
Global Outreach Char-
ter Academy of Sarasota
- which still hopes to
open a school in the
North Port area pre-
sented "deficiencies in
the curriculum design
and proposed budget,"
adding that the school's
administrators "may not
clearly understand the
requirements for the
K-five core curriculum
or appropriate testing
and qualifying proce-
dures for the place-
ment of ESOL (English
as a second language)
students. Additionally,
the committee feels
the applicant has only
partially addressed the
concern of appropriate
methods and materials
for students who are
above or below grade-
level reading."
Global Outreach also
came under fire recent-
ly from North Porter
Daria Tomashosky,
president of the Ukrai-
nian American Club of


RICHARD'S .

CARPET


Southwest Florida.
"The Ukrainian
language and culture is
as distinct and differ-
ent from the Russian
language and culture as
Spanish to French," To-
mashosky said. "It must
also be understood
that throughout his-
tory, Ukraine has been
the constant target of
foreign invasion, occu-
pation and oppression.
The majority of these
offenses have been
perpetrated by Imperial
Russia followed by the
Soviet Union."
Paul Bratulin, Global
Outreach's development
coordinator, said it was
"really regrettable" that
people still draw cor-
relations between the
Russian language and
communism.
"It's understandable
why they do," Bratulin
said. "But what we're
trying to propose is the
cognitive advantages
of learning a Cyrillic
language, which is a
very lucrative language
to learn, with half-a-
billion native speak-
ers across the world.
And we will be offer-
ing Ukrainian as an
after-school language,
because there are
many people who do
want their kids to learn
Ukrainian."
Bratulin conceded
that his school's appli-
cation "could have been
more cohesive," adding
that an appeal of the

THREEFOLD TO APPEAL
The charter review committee decided the Threefold Charter School failed to meet current standards in
educational design, curriculum, assessment and budget, adding that areas of major concern centered on "the
lack of a viable reading program, the applicant's ability to appropriately staff the school with certified teachers,
lack of a viable ESE (special education) and ESOL plan, a questionable loan program proposal for parents, lack of
a facilities plan and an insufficient budget proposal."
Joe Savage, board president of Threefold which hoped to open "in the central part of Sarasota County,"he
said vowed to appeal the board's decision all the way to the state Board of Education.
"I don't think this school board wants any more charter schools in Sarasota County," Savage said. "And the
charter review committee has given me no specific details on exactly what they're rejecting. They haven't shown
me any criteria I haven't met, and from the beginning I had the feeling that they didn't want us around."

Jacaranda Trace to partner with Venice Regional


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Starting the first of the
New Year Jacaranda Trace
will partner with Venice
Regional Medical Center
to provide residents
with a great wellness
environment, said Steve
Roskamp co-owner of
Roskamp Patterson,
operators of Jacaranda
Trace, 3600 William Penn
Way.
Expanding this rela-
tionship, Roskamp met
with Pete Wozniak, chief
executive of VRMC, who
expressed interest in
being an active member
of the campus health
care network. Owners
of the hospital, Health
Management Associ-
ates of Naples, have a
division of Gulf Coast
Medical Group leasing
space at the Center of
Surgical Excellence, 8421
Pointe Loop Road, next
to Walgreen's Pharmacy
adjoining the Jacaranda
Trace campus.
GCMG hired Dr. Sohail
Shariff, who has estab-
lished a primary practice
leading to an urgent care


Discussing the new co-operative arrangement starting with Venice Regional Medical Center is

supervisor of Clubcare private home health program, and Mary Baillie, assisted living adminis-
trator.


and family medicine
center which will be
opening soon, Roskamp
said.
"For residents it has
advantageous benefits so
we are meeting with him
to discuss the services
offered."
Starting Jan. 1 the hos-
pital takes over some of
the home health services


not already provided
by our private nursing
services to residents in
their homes, Roskamp
said. Through GCMG
the hospital will bring
and manage under
Medicare benefits those
services for folks living
on the campus needing
assistance.
Wellness services in


the joint program will
include blood pressure
screening and host-
ing classes related to
balance.
Jacaranda Trace will
host expanded hospital
professional educational
programs when each
month a hospital profes-
sional will speak to the
folks living here, and


people off the campus
will be invited to the
lecture series, Roskamp
said.
A retirement com-
munity, Jacaranda Trace
serves local people mov-
ing from their homes to
27 villas and 400 units. As
they age they need more
services, so the hospital
is bringing rehabilita-
tion therapy starting on
Feb. 1, taking over
1,800 square feet of the
first floor clubhouse to
deliver those services to
residents who have had
surgery in the hospital
and have outpatient
needs.
The campus has an
assisted living complex
for residents with declin-
ing health or experienc-
ing a temporary setback
requiring dining, bath-
ing and medication
management.
"Our own profession-
als on staff will work with
the hospital to bring a
more complete network
of health benefits," said
Roskamp. "Signature
Life, our own wellness
program, operates in our
wellness center where


space is leased to a podi-
atrist, Parkinson's and
neurological disorders
specialist, and an eye
doctor with additional
doctor services available
on demand.
"By bringing VRMC in
we have added another
layer giving very good
health care benefits,"
said Roskamp. "Doctor
Shariff has a nurse prac-
titioner who will be on
the campus as needed, a
day or more each week
and the convenience of
the urgent care opening
nearby will be a fantastic
addition not only to our
campus, but the entire
area.
"Emphasizing the
project is a partner-
ship, not a joint busi-
ness venture, where we
have found our mutual
interests lie in cultivat-
ing a network of ben-
efits to keep everyone
healthy. All the new
services the hospital is
bringing to our campus
are the starting point for
a health network which
will be an advantage not
only to our residents but
the community."


Richard's Foodporium helps families in need


STAFF REPORT

As part of its tradition
of giving to its commu-
nity, Richard's Foodpo-
rium provided gift cer-
tificates totaling $1,150
last week to families in
need to buy groceries for
healthy meals during the
holiday season.
Richard's, a 32-year-
old chain of natural and
specialty products head-


quartered in Sarasota,
recently created the pro-
gram designed to help
families who have been
affected by the economic
downturn and have a
need during the holiday
season for support.
"We have traditionally
supported local chari-
ties such as All Faiths
Food Bank, and I person-
ally donate to Salvation
Army, Season of Sharing


and other worthy causes
annually," said John
Rorer, owner of Richard's
Foodporium. "But, I also
wanted Richard's to be a
vehicle of support direct-
ly to families in need by
providing gift certificates
that can be used to buy
groceries and bulk foods
in our stores all around
Southwest Florida."
Initiated right after
Thanksgiving, the pro-


gram elicited suggestions
for recipients from cus-
tomers and staff. Sugges-
tions came from family
and friends across the
chain of stores. Staff and
customers alike com-
mented positively on the
gesture and generosity of
the program.
Each family chosen
received a minimum gift
certificate of $100.
When notified by


phone, the recipients
expressed surprise and
their appreciation and
gratitude for the unex-
pected gift.
"The stories we
received were very
compelling," Rorer said.
"We wish we could help
everyone and we were
certainly very happy to
help these families dur-
ing the holiday season."
Founded in 1979, Rich-


ard's is locally owned and
operated, growing from
one store to become the
nation's only franchi-
sor in the natural and
specialty foods niche.
Today Richard's has 16
corporate and franchise
locations along the Gulf
Coast from Dunedin to
Port Charlotte along with
one location on Florida's
east coast, in Palm Coast,
Flagler County.

Managers have 'barrel' of common experience


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

North Port City Man-
ager Jon Lewis has a
poster on the wall in his
office at City Hall of a
barrel of apples, turned
on its side. There's one
bad apple in the barrel.
The caption says, "Ethics
matters."
Lewis is current presi-
dent of the Florida City
and County Manage-
ment Association. Ran-
dall Reid, the Alachua
County manager whom
the Sarasota County
Commission has tapped
to be the next county
administrator, was
president in 1994.
About eight years ago,
Reid received an award


for leadership and
commitment from the
FCCMA for the "Eth-
ics Matters" campaign
he spearheaded. Reid
served as chair of the
organization's ethics
committee from 1996 to
2000.
"Now that I am presi-
dent, I actually asked
Randy this year to head
a task force that will fo-
cus on the value of local
government employees
and the work they do
that quite often goes
unnoticed by our com-
munities," said Lewis,
who has known Reid for
more than 10 years.
"I'm excited that he's
going to hopefully -
be coming here to Sara-
sota (County, pending


contract negotiations).
He'll bring a good work-
ing relationship with
the elected officials at
the county, but also
here with the cities."
Most city and county
managers will em-
phatically say that
their bosses city and
county commission-
ers set the policies,
and their role is to carry
them out. A good work-
ing relationship between
managers across city
and county boundar-
ies is a key factor in
that success. For re-
gional projects such as
the jointly owned Warm
Mineral Springs Day Spa
to work out well for both
the county and North
Port, the managers must


be collaborative.
Reid said he is ac-
quainted with some of
the municipal leaders
in Sarasota County,
including Jon Lewis,
Sarasota City Manager
Robert Bartolotta and
interim Longboat Key
Town Manager Dave
Bullock, who served
as a deputy to former
County Administrator
Jim Ley and Interim
County Administra-
tor Terry Lewis. Reid
expects to contact them
"for a briefing on what
the needs of the com-
munity are," he said.
Lewis welcomes the
collaboration.
"If you talk to some
of his counterparts at
the cities in Alachua


County, I think what
they will speak to -
because I have talked
to some of them is a
very positive relation-
ship between their city
staffs and the county
staff under Randy's
leadership," Jon Lewis
said, "and that they
have tried to work on
those types of issues
where it doesn't affect
the character of a par-
ticular community but
it enhances the ability
to get services done by
working together."
Bullock and Reid
have known each other
since 1997, when Reid
first applied here, but
commissioners hired
Ley. Bullock said Reid
contacted him several


months ago when Reid
was considering ap-
plying to succeed Ley.
Bullock anticipates "a
great working relation-
ship" with Reid.
Charlotte County
Administrator Ray San-
drock is not acquainted
with Reid, but he
believes they will work
very closely in the near
future regarding the
counties' newly formed
active ownership team
for the Peace River/
Manasota Regional Wa-
ter Supply Authority.
"There are many is-
sues that are regional in
nature," Sandrock said.
"We team together. We
have for years."

BUCHANAN
FROM PAGE 1

In March 2010, the
FEC found "reason to
believe" Buchanan and
his campaign had broken


the law. But in the end
- and after Buchanan's
lawyers responded
to what the FEC had
learned the case
against the congressman
appeared to have been
undermined by doubts
about Kazran.


"While there is some
other evidence in the
record that is con-
sistent with Kazran's
general allegations,
other evidence supports
Buchanan's denials or
is ambiguous," the final
report states.


The FEC's investiga-
tion is complete, but
Buchanan may not be
completely out of legal
jeopardy.
Buchanan's campaign
and lawyers in October
revealed they had been
informed that the U.S.


Department of Justice
had started a separate
investigation of charges
that Buchanan had bro-
ken campaign finance
laws.
The Justice Depart-
ment has declined


to comment on its
investigation.

OUR VIEW



Signs point to continued upswing in 2012


A few days ago, we met a young
20-something doctor's assis-
tant who had gotten his medi-
cal training at Edison State College
after moving south from Akron,
Ohio.
Asked whether he ever considered
moving back home, he just laughed
and shook his head. Akron or Engle-
wood? Are you kidding? No contest.
All respect to the Buckeye State, but
it seems unlikely that familiar migra-
tion pattern will stop anytime soon.
Despite the worst recession since
the 1930s, the Sunshine State has
remained a migratory magnet.
The national housing market is
lingering in the doldrums and unem-
ployment is still alarmingly high, but
Florida is growing and attracting new
residents.
The reason? It may be as simple as
the fact that, stacked up against other
places, we still come out compara-
tively well.
U.S. Census data released last week


showed Florida's population had
grown by 256,231 from April 1, 2010,
to July 1, 2011, to a grand total of
19.1 million residents. The 1.36 per-
cent growth rate was twice the rate
anticipated by the state's Bureau of
Economic and Business Research.
The higher numbers may be due
to the fact that Census figures are
based on tax and Medicare data as
opposed to electric company data
and building permits which may
more accurately reflect a greater
influx of retirees in the early wave of
the baby boom.
Overall, Census data showed that
if similar patterns continue, Florida
would move from fourth to the
third largest state during the com-
ing decade, vaulting us above New
York. The 15-month population
increase was behind only Califor-
nia and Texas, and more than the
lowest 24 states combined. The data
also showed more than 205,000 had
moved from other states, far more


than any other state except Texas.
Another 86,000 people had moved
here from abroad.
The Census release coincided with
the quarterly Florida Forecast from
University of Central Florida's Institute
for Economic Competitiveness. UCF
economist Sean Snaith's lead essay
was titled, "Yes, Virginia, there is an
economic recovery in Florida," but the
analysis contained little that would
bring joyous caroling around the
wassail bowl.
The highlights:
Payroll job growth will limp along,
but will double to 1.8 percent in the
coming year, 1.9 percent in 2013 and
2.3 percent in 2014. Snaith did not see
payroll growth returning to pre-reces-
sion levels until 2016.
Unemployment rates will decline,
but slowly.
Housing starts will plateau in 2012,
then will progress in 2013.
Real gross state product will accel-
erate to 1.7 percent in the coming


year, 2.4 percent in 2013 and
3.9 percent in 2014.
From now until 2014, real per-
sonal income growth will average
4.4 percent.
Retail sales will "finish much
stronger" in 2011 and grow by nearly
5 percent through 2014.
All in all, the report paints a picture
that is far from glowing. The housing
market here is tied to employment
and ability of would-be retirees to sell
their homes in places like Akron and
Camden, N.J.
As Snaith wrote, "The damage to our
economy from the recession, hous-
ing and financial crises was severe
and the process of rebuilding will take
time."
No doubt, but we do take heart in
figures that indicate the Sunshine
State will continue to attract newcom-
ers. In fact, the surprising population
data may forecast more surprises to
come.
That would be welcome news.


Charitable time


Kirstin Fulkerson, phil-
anthropic adviser for Gulf
Coast Community Founda-
tion, has decided to include
me on some visits with the
many wonderful organiza-
tions served by GCCF in our
community.
I am certainly a better per-
son after meeting Kirstin and
going to the first four of what
promises to be many visits.
I would like to thank Kirstin
publicly for including me and
for putting up with hundreds
of questions. She is quite the
fountain of knowledge.
Our first stop was The
Loveland Center Inc., and, boy,
I have to tell you Carl Penxa
Jr. and Benny Weaver simply
pour their heart and soul into
making the lives of adults with
developmental disabilities so
much more meaningful. I was
thoroughly impressed with the
facility, the volunteers and the
staff at Loveland Center.
More impressive is the fact
that everyone associated with
this organization, either volun-
teer or employed, is doing their
job for the people that come
to the facility. This group could
use some electronic equip-
ment, including PCs, TVs and
Wii game sets, to help make
the most of the participants'
time, so any of these items new
or used would be most helpful.
Our second stop was at the
South County Family YMCA.
Kenneth Modzelewski is the
president and CEO, and I have
never met a guy with more
enthusiasm and determination.
Ken made it a point to teach me
that the Y is so much more than
a gym and place to work out.
We toured the facility, the pre-
school (it was tough to get me
out of that area, the kids were
so special), and the charter
middle school. Ken and staff
do an incredible job handling
everything from education to
physical health for the children
enrolled at school.
Their program is gaining
momentum and attention
statewide and nationwide
as they continue to promote
family and healthy living. The
needs for this organization are
many and my best advice is to
go to the Y and see all the great
things they bring. From vol-
unteering to donating money,
Ken and company know how
to use resources ... you won't
be disappointed.
Big Brothers Big Sisters was
next on the tour. We met with
Gina Taylor, vice president of


marketing, and Joy Mahler,
president and CEO. An added
bonus was Salli Struble, who
gave testimonial to the Deci-
sions to Win program. This
program is specifically geared
to work with students who
have the highest propensity
to drop out of high school.
As we all know, those who do
not finish high school in their
lifetime are headed for a long
and difficult journey. This
program is dedicated to saving
that student and has shown
remarkable results.
Coupled with the ageless
Big Brother Big Sister pro-
gram, this group has dedi-
cated countless hours to the
development of our most
prized resource the youth
of America. In this case, along
with donations, your time and
experience given to a youth
either in an educational setting
or being part of their life would
be a memorable experience ...
I have absolutely no doubt.
Our final stop was Venice
Theatre. I will not go on and on
about the history, as you know
it better than I. I will, however,
go on and on about Mur-
ray Chase, executive/artistic
director for the theater. Murray
possesses rare qualities with
vision being the most attractive.
His leadership, organization
and people skills match the
vision in such a manner that it
is hard not to be captivated by
his oral history tour. To hear the
growth of this building and the
performances was certainly a
highlight of the day.
It should be noted that the
day tied up nicely as it seems
the Loveland Center has its
very own production at the
theater every year. Murray
and his entourage bring such
a variety of art and culture to
the lives of many each year and
it would be hard to imagine
Venice without this fantastic
group. I am quite sure that the
rigors of stage work, costumes
and whatever else comes with
putting on such fantastic shows
has a hefty price tag. Donations
are always welcomed and I am
sure Murray can find you a spot
in or around a show if you have
some spare time.
As you can see, the first road
trip was a fantastic voyage, and
clearly the citizens of Venice
and the region are blessed with
organizations and leaders such
as these. I could go on and
on about the wonderful work
done here. Don't take my word
for it, get out there and lend a
hand when you can. Thanks to
the folks who volunteer, to the
Gulf Coast Community Foun-
dation for supporting them,
and most importantly to the
people who have spent their
life making a difference for
others. For all of these people,
the rewards when it is all
said and done will be many.

Tim Smolarick is publisher of
the Gondolier.

Pass by it. Having lived in
Venice over 40 years and used
the Venice Regional Medi-
cal Center's emergency room
and been very proud of our
city facility, at the ER room
recently, I find that it is the
worst place you could go. Go
anywhere except there. The
staff is rude, crude and really
hatefully mean. They treat you
just exactly like you were dirt
or a second-class citizen. Stay
away from the Venice ER.
Seatless. This is concern-
ing the circus building. What
I'd like to know is who took
the seats out and sold them?
Who authorized this? Where is
the money and what else was
sold? I know the cafeteria was
stripped and this was 1996
right in there. I would like to
know who did that and where
the money went? If anyone
knows, let us know.
Lay off the homework.
The school in Osprey is for
gifted children and it's a good
thing it's for gifted children
because all the teachers do
is pile homework on top of
homework on these poor kids
so they don't have a minute
to themselves. Somebody
said that some of the kids are
smarter than the teachers, and
that's a fact. They should take
a lesson from California and
not give more than 15 minutes
a night for each subject of
homework.
No such luck. Tallahassee
wants Florida to spend more
lottery money. Maybe if they
got some of those 700,000 jobs
they promised, they could get
more lottery money. The peo-
ple are poor out here. Look at


Let 'em


Have It
our unemployment rate.
It's about flies. This is
about the article on picking
up garbage once a week. As a
biologist, I know the rationale
behind picking up garbage
twice a week is because that
coincides with the life cycle of
the fly maggot. The reason for
picking up twice a week is to
reduce the production of flies
at residences. Once a week
ignores this. It puts everything
on a human schedule and
that's why we have more flies
in our garbage. So, other than
that, I don't have an opinion
on it.
Vote them out. I take issue
with a letter to the editor
in the Dec. 12 Gondolier. It
implies that we must pump
out the sewage when vot-
ing out the big spenders,
which is Republican code


for Democrats. This typi-
cal Republican talking point
is a blatant lie. In the name
of economic necessity, they
would heartlessly strip us of
Medicare, Social Security and
consumer protection regula-
tions. Well, the debt prob-
lem is not because of these
programs, but rather by two
Republican unnecessary wars
and deregulation of the banks
and Wall Street. And sec-
ondly, for the rich not paying
their fair share and investing
overseas, thereby exporting
our jobs. So the sewage to be
pumped out are the Congress-
men who are slaves to the
rich and block every attempt
to reverse the havoc worked
by an unimpeded Republican
president. For the good of the
nation the 99 percent must
stop voting against their own
interests. Vote the obstruc-
tionists out in 2012.

horizon for Florida's
lowest-paid workers: On
Jan. 1, the state's mini-
mum wage will increase
36 cents to $7.67, rais-
ing wages for more
than 380,000 low-wage
workers.
The modest bump in
pay is the result of a 2004
ballot measure sup-
ported by voters to raise
the minimum wage and
adjust it upward each
year to keep pace with
the rising cost of living.


As a result, Floridians
who do the hard work of
cleaning and securing
office buildings, provid-
ing day care and serving
food will not fall further
behind as prices for food,
gas and utilities continue
to rise.
The increase not only
helps hard-working Flo-
ridians provide for their
families, but also boosts
the overall economy.
When Franklin Roosevelt
first established the federal
minimum wage during
the Great Depression in
1938, he emphasized that
a strong wage floor is "an
essential part of eco-
nomic recovery."
The same is true today.
When low-wage work-
ers have more money in
their pockets, they have
little choice but to spend


it immediately on basic
necessities like grocer-
ies, clothing and school
supplies.
And as demand for
goods and services
grows, businesses
expand and hire; the
increased spending
resulting from the min-
imum-wage bumps in
Florida and seven other
states on Jan. 1 will lead
to an additional $366
million in economic
output and create the
equivalent of more than
3,000 jobs, according to
an analysis by the Eco-
nomic Policy Institute.
That's a shot in the arm
our economy desperately
needs.
The minimum-wage
increase is especially
important when so many
better-paying jobs in


sectors like construc-
tion, manufacturing
and finance have disap-
peared, and many fami-
lies are left supporting
themselves with lower-
paid service-sector jobs.
An analysis by the
National Employment
Law Project finds that
while the majority of
jobs lost during and after
the recession were in
mid-wage occupations,
roughly three-quarters of
the jobs added since job
growth resumed are in
low-wage occupations.
And things aren't going
to improve any time
soon: The Bureau of
Labor Statistics esti-
mated that seven of the
10 occupations with the
most job growth between
2008 and 2018 will be
low-paying positions.


While we know our econ-
omy will have an increas-
ing number of positions
in home health care,
food preparation and
customer service, these
jobs don't have to pay
poverty wages. At one
time, the manufacturing
jobs that we now yearn
for were dangerous,
low-wage and undesir-
able. But we turned them
into good jobs, with safer
work places, higher pay,
and a voice for workers.
Florida and seven
other states have taken a
step in the right direction
by indexing the mini-
mum wage to keep up
with inflation. But while
more than 1.4 million
workers will see their
wages increase Jan. 1,
millions more must
depend on the stagnant


federal minimum wage
of just $7.25, or $15,000 a
year for full-time work.
The American people
know this isn't right: A
national poll conducted
in November found that
more than two-thirds
of Americans support
raising the minimum
wage to $10 an hour. It's
a deeply popular idea
that can help boost the
economy while not add-
ing to state or federal
budget deficits.
It's time for politi-
cians in Washington,
D.C., to take a cue from
the people of Florida
and raise and index the
minimum wage.

the National Employment
Law Project.

Deja vu
Editor:
What hypocrisy ...
the article by Ed Martin
criticizing the ouster of
former City Manager
Isaac Turner (his hire).
He must have forgotten
his "my way or the high-

mer City Manager Marty
Black. His no growth,
anti-business, anti-tour-
ist policies as mayor are
part of the reason the city
is in such a mess.

Black Friday
humbug
Editor:
It seems that televi-
sion and newspaper
ads hardly mentioned
setting aside a day of
being thankful for what
we have. All we saw and
heard was "Black Friday."
And what a "dangerous"
day it turned out to be!
People shooting, pep-
per spraying and being
knocked down by police!
Is this what America has
become?
I can remember that
the stores put up Christ-
mas decorations the day
after Thanksgiving. We
enjoyed having family
and friends together
and talking about our
many blessings like the
Pilgrims did with the
Indians. Decorations


were not in the stores in
September to buy, and
we never heard of "Black
Friday" to fight over
some Christmas pres-
ent for our kids! Perhaps
Black Friday should be
done away with and
spend Thanksgiving be-
ing thankful to God for
all our blessings.
Then, begin to think
about Christ's birthday
and again thank God
for sending his son to
earth to give us eternal
life. I have looked at
Lowe's, Home Depot
and Walmart and not
one manger scene was
available. You have to go
to, or order from Bron-
ner's in Frankenmuth,
Mich., to buy an outdoor
nativity scene. Thank
God they still believe in
Christmas! I was told by
a clerk that they must
say "Merry Christmas"
or they might be fired! In
Venice, Fla.?
America and the world
has become so far from
what this country was
founded for, and we
have let our greed for
"things" overtake what
the two days really
mean.
It was good to see
churches and groups still
in the Christmas parade
in Venice. But why were
they not throughout the
parade instead of being
all grouped together? I
hope the parade commit-
tee never decides to do
away with Christians in
the parade. If that "hurts
someone's feelings," wait
until the judgment day!
Thanks parade commit-
tee!
Let's go back to having
a day of thanks and cele-
brating Christ's birth and
do away with violence
of Black Friday. Now it
is also "Cyber Monday."
What's next?

Venice splits two games


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

The seasonal roller
coaster continued for the
Venice girls basketball
team as the Lady Indians
split their first two games
in the eighth annual Wil-
lie Clemons Girls Holiday
Basketball Classic on
Monday and Tuesday
at Southeast High in
Bradenton.
Venice (6-9), who
competes in the Semi-
nole Division, plays St.
Petersburg Northeast at
1 p.m. today in the new
gymnasium at Southeast
High.
On Monday, the Lady
Indians opened their
Classic with a 53-41 loss
to Tampa Catholic.

Venice 46,
Charlotte 23
Venice snapped a four-
game losing streak with
a convincing 46-23 win
over district foe Char-
lotte by holding the Lady
Tarpons to single-digit
scoring in every quarter.
"That's a good job right
there," said Venice coach
John Flynn.
The Lady Indians
jumped out to a 11-4
lead in the first quarter
on the offensive produc-
tion from seniors Laura
Hackett and Brooke
Shipps, who had five and
four points respectively in
the run.
Shipps' jumper with
43.4 seconds left in the
first quarter gave Venice a
13-7 first-quarter lead.
Venice forced eight
turnovers in the second
quarter and limited
Charlotte to just one
rebound as the Lady

VENICE TAKES FOURTH IN
TOURNAMENT: Venice took fourth
place in the 2011 Spartan Holiday
Tournament after dropping a
60-43 decision to Minor (Ala.) in
the consolation final late Friday
night at Mountain Brook High in
Birmingham, Ala.
Venice (5-6), who went 1-2 in
the tournament, fell behind by
nine points in the first quarter and
couldn't catch up to Minor, whose
front line was 6-foot-7, 6-foot-8 and
6-foot-9 in height.


Venice's Laura Hackett (33) is fouled by Tampa Catholic's Gabri-

the Willie Clemons Girls Holiday Basketball Classic on Monday.


Indians took a 22-11
halftime cushion.
"I expect them to come
out and own it and just
take control of the game
right out of the box," said
Flynn. "I'm really happy."
Venice defeated Char-
lotte 58-23 on Dec. 6 in a
Class 7A-District 11 game.
"They are a good team
and we need to play good
teams," said Charlotte
coach Mike Robishaw. "I
felt we did much better in
the first half than we did
the last time as we were
down by 11 compared
to the other game when
we were down by 20. We


"They were the most athletic
team we will see this year,"said
Venice coach James Slaton. "They
were fast and pressed and we
struggled against their size. Nothing
was easy. We only shot five foul
shots and they were 13-of-14 from
the line."
Senior Zach Flerlage led Venice
with 17 points while Devin Cruz-
Klein added 10 points.
Venice host Port Charlotte on
Jan. 4 in a Class 7A-District 11 game.
"Hopefully this will prepare us for

game like we were this
game."
The two familiar foes
will get another chance
to play their final district
game on Jan. 6 at Char-
lotte High.
"Big win in the fact
that it sets the tone for
us going down there for a
district game next Friday,"
said Flynn. "Kind of sends
a message that we are
strong. We are strong in
the district."
Venice took complete
control in the third
quarter as Hackett scored
eight of her game-high 21

added eight of her eight
points.
Charlotte hit a foul shot
with 3:28 left in the first
quarter. The only field
goal allowed by Venice in
the quarter occurred with
1.2 seconds remaining.
Venice outscored Char-
lotte 16-3 in the quarter
to take a commanding
38-14 advantage.
"Third quarter we were
taking a lot more outside
shots and they weren't
falling," said Robishaw.
"Hackett played a solid
game and Brooke Shipps
played a good game," said
Flynn.
Hackett and Shipps
combined for 20
rebounds including 12 by
Hackett.
Venice got production
from other players, which
made a difference.
"We have to be able
to go inside out just to
get everybody off Laura's
butt," said Flynn. "She's
got to be able to kick the
ball out and have some-
one out there who can
shoot it out there so we
are not one-dimensional."
"We got to really focus
on the other players," said
Robishaw. "We have to give
her (Hackett) respect and

good player but their role

who have lost four
straight games, took a
17-14 lead with 2:35 left
in the second quarter
on a layup by Brooke
Shipps and foul shot by
Laura Hackett.
Then the Crusaders
(6-6) used a press at
the end of the second
quarter to force turn-
overs and went on a
9-0 scoring run over
the final 2:23 includ-
ing a 3-pointer with 1.2
seconds remaining to
snag a 23-17 halftime
cushion.
"How many turnovers
right at the end of the
half?" said Venice coach
John Flynn. "How many
times have we done it
the whole year? The last
25 to 40 seconds of a
quarter. We give up two
or three free baskets.
We get lackadaisical and
throw the ball around.
Two minutes before
that we didn't do that.
I think it's a little bit of
fatigue and little bit of
getting nonchalant with
the ball and not paying
attention."
Venice committed 10
of its 27 turnovers in the
second quarter.
Tampa Catholic
scored five points to
open the third quarter
to grab a 28-17 lead.
Venice was forced to
play catch up the rest of
the game.
The Crusaders like to
shoot the 3-pointer and
sank six in the game.
"I watched them play
against Riverview (early
in the season) and the
(Micah) Kroll kid shoots
the daylight out of the
ball. That is all they do.
They don't run anything.
They are not that good."
However, the 27
turnovers hurt the Lady
Indians.
"When you throw the
ball around 27 times
against anybody you are
going to struggle to win
a basketball game," said
Flynn.
With 3:51 left in the
fourth quarter, Venice
pulled within, 43-37, on
a layup by Hackett, who
was held to a season-
low 13 points.
The Lady Indians
couldn't get any closer
as the Crusaders hit
6-of-9 foul shots in the
final minute.
The first quarter was
back and forth. The only
difference was Tampa
Catholic hitting two
3-pointers as the Cru-
saders led, 12-10.
Hurting Venice were
three first-half fouls
called on Hackett, who
was forced to sit most
of the first quarter
and half of the second
quarter.
Hackett led Ven-
ice with 12 rebounds
as the Lady Indians
had a 39-26 edge in
rebounding.

By DON BLAIR
GUEST WRITER


In England, the day
after Christmas is known
as Boxing Day. The name
derives from boxes used
to collect money for vari-
ous reasons throughout
the year. On Boxing Day
those proceeds were
shared with the intended
recipients: the poor, ser-
vants, those who had to
work on Christmas and
others.
On Nov. 7 in Venice,
"boxing day" was a day
to package items for
members of the armed
forces.
At American Legion
NO-VEL Post 159 on
East Venice Avenue, a
dedicated group of the
Women's Auxiliary joined
by a few husbands (and
post members like me)
gathered to spend several
worthwhile hours assem-
bling and packing boxes
to be sent on to men and
women in uniform cur-
rently deployed overseas.
This effort, which
is now undertaken
every two to three
months, usually with an
approaching holiday in
mind, saw 71 of those
boxes filled with up
to 25 pounds of items
our folks in uniform
put down on their so-
called "wish lists." They
include everything from
clothing (T-shirts and
underwear); used but
recent paperback books;
personal items such as
toiletries; magazines,
blank CDs; and flip-flops
to cards to write home
with; candy; and even
beef jerky, which is a big
favorite.
As some of us stood
behind one long table
getting the boxes
unfolded and securely
held together with
official post office tape,
I looked over at a table
piled high with M&Ms,
gummy bears and
other tasty treats. They
appeared to be the last
items going into the
boxes and would likely
be the quickest items
to disappear when the
boxes were opened over-
seas. Also included were
posters for brightening
up tents and barracks
and small U.S. flags
that are easy to carry
in the pockets of their
uniforms.
Under the guidance
of Women's Auxiliary
president Julia Griffith,
this particular project
has been under way

Members of American Legion NO-VEL Post 159 filled many boxes with holiday treats and gifts for
members of the armed forces stationed overseas.


since around mid-2009.
In the ensuing months
more than 300 of these
boxes have been packed
and shipped. The cost
is $12.95 per box, a $2
discount from what you
and I would have to pay
for a regular package
mailing of the same size
and weight. Prior to 2009,
a small group of women
from the Legion did this
from their homes.
Who pays for all this
and who provides the
goodies that end up in
these boxes? In addition
to donations, the funding
comes from events spon-
sored by the Women's
Auxiliary such as the
recent Nov. 12 dinner
dance honoring veterans.
At Post 159, proceeds


from 50-50 raffles also go
to help fund the pack-
aging project.


The Nov. 7 mailing was
timed for the Christmas
holiday but if some of


those boxes were in the
hands of the addressees
in time for Thanksgiv-
ing there would be no
complaints. Giving to
service personnel knows
no season.
The next mailing,
sometime in late January,
will be with an eye (and a
heart) to Valentine's Day.
As for what fills those
boxes, the ingredients
are obtained largely from
area businesses, all well
known and very coopera-
tive with much appreci-
ated discounting.
You may have seen
notices put up on store
lobby bulletin boards by
the post asking for your
help as well. The Legion-
naires donate gener-
ously by filling the "troop
donation" box in the
post's foyer.
"Anytime anyone
asks to donate, I ask
them to write a little
something," Griffith said.
"Valentines are really
welcome each year."
Legion members
also recently donated
a check for $9,000 to
Haley House, which is

a rehabilitation center
where veterans receive
training in order to adapt
to a life changed by
injuries incurred while
in the service of the
country. Family mem-
bers also may go there to
learn how to assist their
family-member veterans.
Should you wish to
participate in any legion
efforts, drop off donations
at NO-VEL Post 159, 1770
E. Venice Ave., Venice, or
call 941-488-1157.
With more than 2,000
members, the post is
considered to be one of
the largest in the United
States. The present
post dates to 1946 and
replaced the first legion
post in Venice, which
operated from 1919 to
1929.

Brownies


without borders


By JACK BURRELL
SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS
Monkey around with
a towering souffle or a
Parisian petit four, and
you're asking for trouble.
But brownies and their
freewheeling cousins,
the blondie and the bar
are a whole different
matter. These all-Ameri-
can treats are the rough-
and-tumble members of
the pastry arts club.
C'mon down, they say.
Let's play.
There's a certain
"pinky-raised delicacy"
to European sweets like
the macaroon and mad-
eleine, says food anthro-
pologist Michael Krondl
in his new book, "Sweet
Invention: A History of
Dessert" (Chicago Review
Press, 418 pages, $24.95).
But brownies are a des-
sert of the people, for the
people and ever since
Fanny Farmer's Boston
Cooking School invented
them in 1896 baked by
the people too. Brownies,
Krondl says, are "quintes-
sentially American."
And while part of their
enduring appeal lies in
the ease of preparation
and all-around delicious-
ness, there's no denying
the allure of a dessert
that can be adapted so
many ways.
"They make a great
canvas," says Stacy
Adimando, the New
York-based author of the
just-published "Cookie-
pedia" (Quirk Books, 160
pages, $18.95). "You mix
in whatever you're crav-
ing and whatever your
sweet style is."
Brownie and blondie
aficionados run the
gamut from purists to
increasingly avant-garde.
They dabble in choco-
lates, add exotic spices
and sprinkle the results
with salt and even, in
some cases, pepper. They
bring in salty ingredi-
ents, fresh herbs or dried
flowers, like lavender.
Or, they tiptoe over the
cookie barrier to bring in
other elements from the
dessert world, including
caramels, fresh fruit or
cheesecake.
Take the divine mocha-
cream cheese brownie

Luchetti, pastry chef at

and Waterbar. Luchetti
tops her brownie base
with a creamy mocha
cheesecake layer, then
swirls them together
before baking for a
swoon-worthy dessert
that's easy to eat, even
without a fork, but looks
sensational enough for
any swanky cocktail party.
That's precisely why
blondies and bars are
so much fun, Adimando
says. They have no rules
at all, which leaves the
embellishments and add-
ins "wide open to varia-
tions and modernization
of these classics."
And that's something
anyone can do, not just
the pros.
My family's favorite
autumnal bar was inspired
by the idea of marrying a
blondie to a gingersnap.
The result after many
happy teen taste-tests -
is a dense, spicy bite of
deliciousness, filled with

WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
A84 K10760 A9 5 446 872


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
1 Pass 20
34 Pass ?
What action do you take?


WEST
Pass


A You have a borderline raise to
four hearts, and had your ace of
diamonds been the ace of clubs, four
hearts would have been clear cut.
Here, however, we prefer a bid of
three diamonds, making it easy for
partner to make the correct decision.

Q 2 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
695 1076 0KQ9446K 1076


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
16 Pass 1NT
2NT Pass ?
What action do you take?


WEST
Pass


A You have a good eight points and
fine intermediates, which provide
you with added safety. While this
hand is borderline, the intermediates
provide backing for your stoppers.
Raise to three no trump.

Q 3 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
495 V830 AKJ8734KQ6


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
l) Pass 20
2) Pass ?
What do you bid now?


WEST
Pass


A Partner's rebid can be made on a
dead minimum or quite a strong hand
- your response was forcing. In
either case, you want to be at least in
game, but which one? To find out
more about partner's hand bid three
clubs. That is 100 percent forcing,
and partner's next bid will clarify the
situation.

Q 4 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
6AKQ63Q965 K10546J5


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
16 Pass 20
24 Pass 346
30 Pass 44
What action do you take?


EAST
Pass
Pass
Pass


A In terms of point count you have
a minimum, but think about partner's
bidding. He has gone out of his way
to paint the picture of a good hand
with a singleton heart. Your king of
diamonds is worth its weight in gold,
even at today's prices. Bid six spades.

Q 5 North-South vulnerable, as
South you hold:
6AQ9853 K10760 A6Q7


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


WEST
Pass


A There is the possibility that you
have two fast losers in clubs, but why
go about an auction that would reveal
your weakness to the opponents? We
would gamble it out by bidding six
hearts. If we don't find partner with a
club control, perhaps the opponents
will lead the wrong minor!

Q 6 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:
A AK 982 KA J 7 0 9546 A 106


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
14 Pass 3A
9
What do you bid now?


EAST
Pass


A You have a hand rich in controls
that is worth considerably more than
its point count. However, you do not
want to get beyond game if there is
no need to. Start your investigation
by cue-bidding four clubs and see
how partner reacts.

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
discuss the details of your dental care.
Happy Holidays,

If your children trot off to school
seemingly carrying the weight of the
world on their shoulders, you may want to
give some attention to their backpacks.
According to the North America Spine
Society, a loaded backpack should weigh
no more than 10 to 15 percent of a child's
body weight. As a general rule, backpacks


Their Load

should weigh about 5 to 10 pounds for
elementary school students and no more
than 15 pounds for older students. It is
also important that students not sling one
strap over one shoulder. The load should
be distributed evenly by using both straps
and adjusting them snugly to the
shoulders. Encourage your children to
practice proper posture while wearing a
backpack.

Little Salt Spring on quest for $1 million


By CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

Little Salt Spring,
content to operate under
the shadow of the more
commercial and better-
known Warm Mineral
Springs, must make itself
more publicly recognized
if a $1 million capital
campaign is to succeed.
The clock is ticking,
however. The Univer-
sity of Miami, which
has owned the 110-acre
property since 1982, has
given Little Salt Spring
stakeholders until July 1,
2013, to procure that
amount. Should the
campaign not be suc-
cessful, Miami's Rosen-
stiel School of Marine &
Atmospheric Science has
said it will not be able to
continue to include the
site's $75,000 operations
cost in its budget.
The campaign started
last July 1, according to
Marty Ardren, a consul-
tant working on it with
the university. Currently,
a prospectus about the
Little Salt Spring Archae-
ological and Ecologi-
cal Preserve, just off of
West Price Boulevard
near Glenallen Elemen-
tary School, has been
prepared and is being
distributed. The sinkhole
- that's how the hour-
glass-shaped depression
is classified was a gift

"Little Salt Spring is one
of the most important
archaeological sites in
the world," Ardren said,

also giving a nod toward
Warm Mineral Springs.
This isn't the first
time Little Salt Spring
has been the focus of
a fundraising effort.
Almost three years ago
the Rosenstiel School
began a $1 million
campaign but let it fall
dormant, even though
$350,000 in matching
funds had been pledged.
Now, the campaign is
being revived through

TRIP BACK IN TIME
University of Miami President
Donna Shalala, who served as
Secretary of Health & Human
Services for eight years under
Presidents Bill Clinton and
George W. Bush, helicoptered to
North Port in 2008 to view the
Little Salt Spring facilities, which
included three trailers that are
still on-site.
"It was like I was walking
back in time,"Shalala said
in 2008."I think the spring
itself is stunning. You can see
pictures and be briefed on it ad
nauseum, but I really needed to
see it for myself."
Shalala also met with officials
from Gulf Coast Community
Foundation in Venice and the
William G. and Marie Selby
Foundation in Sarasota, which
had offered matching grants
of $250,000 and $100,000,
respectively.
Although both foundations
extended the deadline for
matching their grants Selby
to Dec. 31, 2010, and Gulf Coast
to April 2011 Miami fund-
raisers could not attract enough
donations.
However, both organizations
said they would entertain a
reapplication.


the College of Arts &
Sciences, with Senior
Associate Dean Traci
Ardren, Marty's daughter
and an associate dean of
anthropology, heading
the efforts.
Marty Ardren listed
three monetary goals
the fundraising effort
would like to realize.
The first is $1 million
to go toward the design
of a 3,000-square-foot
research and educa-
tional outreach facility.
Second is $3 million for
an endowment to help
underwrite the annual
operation funds. Third
is $25,000 for a match-
ing grant that would go
toward furthering the
research overseen by
John Gifford, principal
investigator and asso-
ciate professor at the
Rosenstiel School.
Early Oct. 5, Steve
Koski, the research asso-
ciate/archaeologist at
Little Salt Spring as well
as its caretaker, was at
the North Port Perkins to

Salt Spring, 6863 W. Price Blvd.,

give a slideshow presen-
tation to members of the
North Port Area Chamber
of Commerce, along with
a pitch for donations.
Koski can take a
listener back to the dry
savannah that was the
early Little Salt Spring,
where humans and
now-extinct animals
existed thousands of
years ago. Then, in the
next moment, he can
transport the listener
to the future, where a
new building houses
a research facility, a
classroom and "collec-
tion rooms," enabling
schoolchildren to see
prehistoric artifacts -
such as two green-stone
bead pendants that were
found about 35 feet
below the surface.


WANT TO HELP?
To discuss a major tax-
deductible donation toward
the design, construction and
furnishing of the research/
education building at Little Salt
Spring, or toward the Little Salt
Spring Endowment, call Senior
Associate Dean Traci Ardren at
305-284-4036.
To make a tax-deductible
donation toward the $50,000
needed to continue underwater
archaeological excavations at
Little Salt Spring, checks should
be made payable to"LSS Fund,
University of Miami, Depart-
ment of Anthropology"and sent
to University of Miami, Depart-
ment of Anthropology, Little
Salt Spring Research, P.O. Box
248106, Coral Gables FL 33124.

Little Salt Spring has
produced Paleo-Indian
artifacts and giant-ani-
mal remains dating back
12,000 years. Nothing
recovered at Little Salt
Spring is younger than
5,500 years old.

BROWNIES BLONDIE EMBELLISHMENTS


FROM PAGE 2

Customizing your own
signature blondie or bar
can be as easy as starting
with a good basic dough
- Adimando's favorite
gets added flavor from
browned butter and
indulging your candy-
bar cravings. Adimando


Customize your brownies, blondies and bars by adding your favorite flavors and embellishments to a good
basic batter. Some ideas for mix-ins:
* Platinum blondies white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts
* Candy bar blondies chopped peanut butter bars, Snickers or your favorite candy bar
* Brittle brownies chopped peanut brittle, toffee bar or both
* Tropical blondies chopped dried pineapple, mango and shredded coconut
* Salted blondies chopped honey-roasted peanuts, dark chocolate and a finishing sprinkle of coarse salt
* Blueberry blondies fresh blueberries and chopped dark chocolate


suggests adding chopped
peanut butter bars,


brittles, honey-roasted
nuts, dried fruit or even


pretzels to a dense,
chewy blondie. It's not


just tasty and texturally
interesting, she says, but
you get this "beautiful
cross-section of all the
delicious mix-ins" when
the bars are sliced.
And don't be afraid to
manhandle those blond-
ies. Souffles and high-ris-
ing cakes may be delicate
affairs, but when food
writers Mark Scarbrough
and San Carlos-native
Bruce Weinstein bake


their chocolate-flecked
buttermilk blondies, they
add a little violence to
the proceedings. Halfway
through the baking, they
take the pan out and
whack it against an oven
rack a few times. The
act of blondie mayhem
compresses the towering
bars into a dense, gooey
wonder.
See? No rules at all on
this baking playground.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I have tinnitus. It sounds
like roaring in my head. I
take gabapentin for it. Do
you know of anything else
for it? EA.
ANSWER: You have
an affliction that would
drive me crazy tinnitus,
a constant noise in one
or both ears or the head
that people describe in a
variety of ways as ringing,
whistling, buzzing, hissing
or roaring. An estimate of
the number of Americans
suffering from tinnitus is
somewhere between
16 million and 60 million.
Tinnitus mostly happens
to older people whose
hearing is diminishing.
Why tinnitus arises in
them is explained by the
fact that head noises are
generated constantly.
Outside noise entering
the ears obliterates these
internal noises. When
deafness approaches, the
volume of external noises
greatly lessens, and the in-
ternal noises then become
prominent and nerve-
racking. If your hearing is
growing dimmer, a hearing
aid will help you hear more
clearly and will dampen
your tinnitus.
Other causes of tinni-
tus are as banal as a wax
impaction in the eardrum,
something easily taken
care of by the family doc-
tor. Drugs like aspirin and
the nonsteroidal anti-
inflammatory medicines
(Aleve, Advil, Motrin) can
bring on tinnitus if they are
constantly used.
If a cause cannot be
determined, then other ap-
proaches have to be taken.
A bedside radio tuned to
a station that plays the
kind of music you like
can reduce the volume of
tinnitus. Nighttime is the
worst time for it.
Tinnitus makers, de-
vices worn like a hearing
aid, emit a constant sound
that dulls tinnitus.
Do get in touch with
the American Tinnitus
Association. It will pro-
vide you with a wealth of
information on tinnitus
and its treatments. You
can reach the associa-
tion online at www.ata.
org. If you don't have a
computer, surely a friend,
neighbor or relative does
and can hook you up with
the association.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I read your article on a
low number of platelets.
What if the count is high?
My son had a stroke at age
48, presumably because of
that. What does bruising at
older age mean? L.D.
ANSWER: A high platelet
count is thrombocytosis,


Dr. Donohue
Readers may
write Dr
Donohue at
PO. Box
536475,
Orlando,
FL 32853-6475
thrombocytess" being
another name for plate-
lets, the small blood cells
instrumental in forming
clots. Iron deficiency, some
cancers, some infections
and polycythemia are
examples of the conditions
in which the platelet count
is high. Essential thrombo-
cytosis is an overproduc-
tion of platelets without
a discernible cause. High
counts can lead to bleed-
ing and possibly to inap-
propriate clot formation.
Is this what happened to
your son?
Bruising at older ages
has to do with the fragil-
ity of blood vessels that
comes with age and with
the loss of cushioning tis-
sues for those vessels, an-
other age-related problem.
It's not ordinarily a sign of
any illness.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
A few years back, my
doctor gave me a sulfa
antibiotic that turned me
beet-red. She said I was
allergic to sulfa. Now my
scalp itches like crazy,
and I wonder if it's due to
sulfates in the shampoo I
use. Are sulfates related to
sulfa? K.M.
ANSWER: Sulfa and sul-
fates are very distant rela-
tives, because they both
contain some sulfur atoms.
But in all other respects
they're quite different.
Sulfas are synthetic materi-
als that stop the growth of
bacteria.
Sulfates are mainly
industrial compounds that
also contain some sulfur,
but they are used for differ-
ent purposes. They are not
taken orally like the sulfa
drugs are.
Your allergy is to sulfa
drugs. Most people allergic
to sulfa drugs are not al-
lergic to sulfates. On the
outside chance that you
are allergic to sulfates, stop
the shampoo and see what
happens.

Making biscuit mix


Dear Heloise: One time
you printed a recipe for
biscuit mix in our paper,
the (Lehighton, Pa.)Times
News, but I didn't save it.
Since I bake quite a bit of
quick breads (biscuits and
muffins) in the winter, I
would appreciate it if you
would print it again. A
Reader in Lehighton, Pa.
Happy to oblige! This
mix is so easy and can be
used to make not only
biscuits, but pancakes as
well. All you need are the
following ingredients:
8 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup baking powder
2 teaspoons salt
8 teaspoons sugar
(optional)
1 cup shortening
Milk
Mix all the dry ingredi-
ents together. Then, using
a pastry blender or fork,
cut the shortening in with
the mixture until it creates
a coarse texture. Now you
can store this in a tightly
sealed container in the
pantry (if using soon) or
in the refrigerator, where
it will last longer.
To make the biscuits, mix
1/3 cup of milk into each 1
cup of dry mix. Then bake
at 450 degrees F for 12-15
minutes.
For pancakes, simply
add enough milk to get
that pancake batter con-
sistency you want.

Blooming
chocolate
Dear Readers: Have
you ever gone to eat some
chocolate and found that


Hints from Heloise

it looks white? Do you
know what causes this?
Is it still safe to eat? Yes, it
is! The term for the white
discoloration is "chocolate
bloom," which happens
when the cocoa butter
in the chocolate comes
to the surface. Typically,
this occurs when there
is a drastic temperature
change, which is why
chocolate should be
stored in a cool, dry place.
It may look unappealing,
but it does not affect the
taste in any way!
And an interesting fact
is that dark chocolate is
like some red wine: It can
actually get better with
age if stored at the right
temperature, which is
around 60-65 degrees! So
be sure to enjoy each bite!
- Heloise

Plastic containers
Dear Heloise: In re-
sponse to a hint recently,
I use plastic containers
to freeze my husband's
meatballs-with-sauce
recipe, but I first spray the
container with a cooking
spray. They wash easily
and do not stain. Betty

Man with roving eye online

needs meds to stay grounded


MALLARD FILLMORE By Bruce Tinsle


DEAR ABBY: My mar-
riage has been on the rocks
since 2008, when I caught
my husband talking to
other girls online. He swore
he would never do it again
and I trusted him, only
for it to happen again and
again. We have a 2-year-old
and I'm pregnant with our
second child.
He has now placed an-
other ad online stating that
he's a single dad. I am torn.
He keeps telling me he
loves me and wants only
me, and he doesn't know
what's wrong with him. He
is bipolar and not taking
meds for it. He promised
this time he will get help
and try to get better.
This is the fifth time he
has placed an ad or chat-
ted with other girls online.
I don't know if I should
call it quits or keep trying.
I love him and want us
to be a family, but I don't
know how much more
I can take. TORN IN
CALIFORNIA
DEAR TORN: Because
you still love your hus-
band, make his taking his
medication a condition
of your continuing the
marriage. He needs to be
willing to prove to you
that he wants you to stay.
If he won't do that, then
you will have to decide if
this is the way you want
to spend the rest of your
life. And please, for your
sake and that of your kids,
don't have more children
with him until you're sure
your marriage is on solid
ground.
DEAR ABBY: I'm an in-
dependent, never-married
woman who has been
holding out for the right
man. I finally found him
in "Wayne," a 49-year-old
widower with two adult
daughters.
Wayne and I have been
together for a year liv-
ing together for six months
- but his daughters still
refuse to meet me. Wayne
says they need time
because they lost their


Dear Abby

mother only two years ago
and aren't ready to accept
anyone else in his life. The
rest of his family has been
welcoming and sweet. I'm
invited to some family
functions, but allowed to
attend only those that
Wayne's daughters won't
be at.
I feel like I am able to
share only part of his life
and nothing will move
forward until his children
accept me. I love Wayne. I
have searched my whole
life for someone like him.
How long is long enough
to wait? What if they never
do? ON THE SIDELINES
DEAR ON THE SIDE-
LINES: You have assessed
your situation correctly.
You ARE sharing only part
of Wayne's life, and won't
be moving forward until
his adult daughters accept
you ORWayne asserts
himself. Wayne should be
ashamed of himself. He
should have introduced
you to his daughters when
you started living together.
As his partner, you should
not have been excluded
from any family func-
tions. As long as Wayne
does nothing, nothing will
change.

"Pray one for another, that ye may be healed..."
-]ames 5:16
Join me as we obey God's word. Father, we know you
sent your Son, Jesus, to heal the hurt of humanity in
whatever form it appears. We ask for your healing touch
in His name. Let the stream of your healing love and
light come upon those who are suffering. Deal with crip-
pling and incurable diseases as though they are nothing.
Grant us great breakthroughs in medical science, and in
simple faith so that we can believe you for miracles. May
the Holy Spirit who has been ordained to carry out your
earthly ministry through us prevail with great power. All
good things come from thee and all the glory shall go to
thee in Jesus' name Amen.

CRANKSHAFT By Tom Batiuk & Chuck Ayers


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


I HOROSCOPE
ARIES (March 21-April 19).You'll finally have the
chance to pursue an interest you've wanted to know
more about for a long time now. You'll enjoy getting
lost in a wealth of new information and experience.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).You'll free your mind
from material concerns and embrace a higher mind-
set. You'll find this easy to do, especially when you're
in a relaxed environment surrounded by beauty.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21).You can like and respect
yourself even when you wish you would have acted


Your compassionate attitude will help you grow into
the person you want to be.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Because you are so
multifaceted, you can connect with people on many
different subjects. You'll have a knack for saying the
thing that breaks the conversation wide open.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your creative energy will
burn bright. Remember that this is not just about
being able to paint or write a story. Creativity is
what helps you solve a problem.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It's not OK to quit when


to fight the currents of life by swimming upstream.
Only you know when it's right to change direction.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23).The way you see a situa-
tion may be causing you stress. Ask a trusted friend
to give you another perspective on the matter. You'll
open your mind to a liberating viewpoint.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Studies prove that
regular exercise bolsters your self-control. Even
goals that are not fitness related will be easily ac-
complished because of today's higher activity level.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).There'sa problem


Truly, no one is to blame for this. You'll make
headway once you decide that you're the one who
will change the dynamic.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.19).Things of value
will come easily to you. And if you recognize the
value and cherish these things, you'll be among
the few who do. Most people don't see the value of
something until they are deprived of it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). No time to stop and
assess where you are. Keep going until you get a
sense of pride and accomplishment. For you, this


differently or projected a different side of yourself, the going gets tough. On the other hand, it's silly


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).You will be the astute
one in your group, and they really need you to point
out the little signs of improvement you see. You'll
note the incremental progress and inspire others.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 28).You promote
harmony and cooperation wherever you go. People
work together under your guidance. The actions
you take in January have unusual and unexpected
results, making it a memorable time. February
brings freedom, and you'll adventure on through
the spring. Libra and Gemini people adore you. Your
lucky numbers are: 5, 21, 24,30 and 14.


JANRIC CLASSIC SUDOKU

of two no trump would be too
unilateral. North's spade cue-bid was
an attempt to locate a heart fit, and
three no trump became the final
contract.
West led a fourth-best spade and
declarer captured East's ten in hand
with the queen. It seemed that the
contract would hinge on the diamond
finesse (a heart finesse was less likely
to succeed), but declarer was in no
hurry to rely on a 50 percent shot for
the contract. First, four rounds of
clubs were cashed, West discarding
two hearts and East parting with a
spade. Next the ace and king of hearts
were cashed, West discarding a
spade. Now West was thrown in with
a spade and, at the end, the defender
was forced to lead way from the king
of diamonds for the ninth trick.
What is your verdict?
West's spade discard was
unnecessary and catastrophic. He
might have thrown a diamond,
forcing declarer to guess the diamond
position. Declarer would have
needed glass cards to avoid taking the
diamond finesse.

Happy New


Year


This past year the Cultural Coast proved why it has earned
that moniker. Venice Theatre stunned us with its wonderful
production of "The King and I" and then brought us the
Capitol Steps, the Kingston Trio and, in its Pinkerton Theatre, a
stunning version of "Romeo and Juliet," featuring actors the
age of the real Romeo and Juliet. It made sense to follow
that with The Complete Works of William Shakespeare," also in the
Pinkerton. Another mainstage hit of the year was
"The Diary of Anne Frank."
In June the annual Loveland Follies made everyone who
watched the show feel good about a town that has such a
place as Loveland for developmentally challenged adults and
Venice Theatre for helping these people explore their not
inconsiderable talents.
During the summer, Venice Theatre rocked us with its summer
stock production of "Jesus Christ Superstar"' With direction and
choreography by Brad Wages, and cast members like
Dan Smith, Tony DeNiro, Kaitlyn Terpstra and Sam Garvin, "Super-
star" showed the worth of Venice Theatre and its directorial staff and
educational programs. No wonder it is one of the top three theaters
in the U.S. and number one, per capital.
DeNiro scored again this fall in "Big River" on the mainstage and
what's not to like about the theater's own production of
"A Christmas Carol" and Eric Watters as Scrooge.
The Asolo, Florida Studio Theatre, The Players,
Golden Apple Dinner Theatre, Historic Asolo Theater plus
museums and art centers add even more to the Cultural Coast.
Check them out as you enjoy a happy new year.

Busch Gardens celebrates holidays on ice and in air


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
As a preview of its new Iceploration which
opens Feb. 2, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay
is presenting an ice skating show during
the holiday season.
Continuing through Jan. 1, Christmas on Ice
will bring a winter wonderland to the Moroccan
Palace, which will be home to Iceploration when it
opens. Local skating fans may see some of their
friends spiraling and flipping their way around
the rink, throwing in an occasional axel for good
measure. With colorful costumes, talented skaters
and a production based on the winter wonderland
theme, there is no need to go north over the
holidays to see a little ice and snow.
When Iceploration opens with daily shows,
Busch Gardens will feature world-class skaters
in a 30-minute show that tells a story about a
young man and his grandfather who encourages
the young man to explore the real world that lies
beyond cyber space.
In the park's Marrakesh Theater, enjoy Christ-
mas From the Heart, a melange of gospel and
spiritual songs sung by a live choir.
Find more holiday entertainment in the Desert
Grill which will feature tap-dancing toy soldiers in
a family-friendly holiday-themed show.


Holiday decorations are everywhere in the
park. There are plenty of live poinsettias, live a
capella music by Men of Note and classic holiday
music at every turn.
While you are there, do not forget to check in
on Kasi, the baby cheetah that arrived at Busch
Gardens about the same time as the new ride,
Cheetah Hunt. Growing up with Kasi is his
friend Mrani, a yellow lab that will serve as
friend and also part-time trainer and com-
panion to the little fleet-footed cat. Kasi is
growing fast and now almost as big as Mrani.
Eventually Kasi will be larger yet, according
to trainers at Busch Gardens, will likely always
defer to the dog. If you like cats, prepare to like
Kasi and if you like coasters, you should definitely
like Cheetah Hunt. It also offers one of the best
views of the park but you have to keep your
eyes open.
On NewYear's Eve, the band None Other will
play popular party hits all evening in Gwazi Park
leading up to a giant fireworks display that will
light up the night and the park at midnight. Other
bands and DJs will add to the merriment.
Call 888-800-5447 or visit www.buschgardens.
com for NewYear's Eve details and reservations.
Best of all, all the rides are up and running this
week.

Original Hooters in Florida gets a facelift


BY TAMARA LUSH
ASSOCIATED PRESS
Tie original Hooters was a ramshackle, dove-
gray, two-story building perched on a stretch of
road between Tampa and Clearwater Beach.
Like the chain's slogan, it was "delightfully tacky,
yet unrefined"- and it launched a wildly popular
restaurant chain that now boasts 487 locations
around the world. For 28 years, it has been a magnet
for folks who like chicken wings, pretty waitresses in
tight clothes and cold beer (although probably not in
that order).
Recently Hooters management announced that
the building is "undergoing a full-scale remodeling"'
Most of the edifice was torn down and construction
crews are expanding the footprint to accommodate
more customers.
Some would say its blasphemy in a state accused
of constantly demolishing the past in favor of building
the shiny new future. Should the demise of the Origi-
nal Hooters be mourned? Could a bar where scantily
clad women serve clams, wings and beer ever truly
be a cultural touchstone?
Absolutely says Bay Ragni, a Hooters fan from
Aston, Pa. Its Ragni's life goal to visit every Hooters in
the world. So far, he has been to 15, four on one re-
cent vacation. He jokes with his wife that they should
rent an RV and drive to every Hooters, collecting
memorabilia along the way
But Ragni is disappointed that he won't be able to
visit the very first Hooters in its original glory
'The original one would be like going to the Mecca
of Hooters," Ragni said."I would definitely want to still
come visit it but it won't be the same. Now that they're
changing it, it takes away a little of the originality of it"
Renovation plans call for an expanded kitchen
and bar originally, the restaurant served only beer
and wine and a Hooters museum, said Neil Kefer,
president and CEO of Hooters Management Corp.
"Artifacts, a timeline, menus, original uniforms,"
said Kiefer, who was overseeing the construction on
a recent balmy Florida winter day Men in hard hats
tramped in and out of the shell of the building, while
laminated drink specials cards with smiling Hooters
Girls lay stacked on a wooden porch rail.
Local historic preservationists also question
whether the structure should have been dramatically


revamped, while saying that they're not surprised it
was.
"Growth is the greatest enemy of historic buildings,"
said Gary Mormino, a history professor at the Univer-
sity of South Florida St. Petersburg, whose office is
located in a rare late-1800s Dutch Colonial building in
downtown. 'Time anoints, but also destroys"
And while the old Hooters may not have been
much to look at, "our frame of reference is always
changing," he said. Ranch-style homes and 1950s
architecture are undergoing a popular revival.
Maybe someone in the future would have wanted to
see the faux-Key West-style of the original Hooters,
he said.
Mormino said that Hooters plays into what he
calls "the Florida Dream": sun, sand, palm trees,
beautiful girls, eternal youth, second chances.
Even the founders of Hooters weren't sure if their
restaurant would last, much less spawn such a sexy
legacy; so many other eateries had failed in that
location that they built a small "graveyard" near the
front door with tombstones for the prior businesses.
But it was a success: patrons seemed to go
wild over the simple concept of beer, wings and
waitresses in orange running shorts.
So much so that the founders sold the chain's
trademark to another company that kept the iconic
Hooters name although the founders still own
the original Clearwater Hooters and other Florida
locations.
Mormino and colleague Ray Arsenault are
mourning the fact that Hooters recently tore down
a longtime Spanish eatery called Pepin about 15
miles away The Mediterranean-revival building was
replaced this fall with a modern-looking structure
graced with the bright orange "Hooters" sign atop
the building.
"For it to be a Hooters was something of an
affront," Arsenault said."I don't like it. I feel like we've
lost something"'
While Florida might not have 15th-century Renais-
sance architecture like Italy, and even the state's copies
of Mediterranean architecture are being torn down
to make way for chain restaurants, Americans fondly
embrace their icons, however mass-produced or tacky.
Authenticity is in the eye of the beholder, says
Douglas Astolfi, a history professor at St. Leo Uni-

opens Westcoast


Black Theatre Troupe season


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
welve plus years in the making, the West-
coast Black Theatre Troupe has come of
age.
Finally in its own home, the talented perform-
ing troupe created by Nate Jacobs recently
announced a "Sizzlin'" four-show season and
debuted its elegant new website where fans
can learn more about coming shows, about the
troupe and even check ticket availability and
make purchase.
Opening the season today is "Love Sung in
the Key of Aretha," which pays homage to the
lady who made "R-E-S-P-E-C-T" a household
word. Written by Jacobs, the season opener is
about four African-American women sharing
a Florida apartment, circa 1968, a year of
political turmoil and social unrest throughout
the country. According to his storyline, their life
stories are shared in songs associated with
Aretha Franklin, aka the "Queen of Soul."
Theresa Stanley, who joined WBTT when she
was 14 and now works in theater in New York
City, returns to Sarasota to perform in "Love.
Sung in the Key of Aretha." She appeared on
Broadway where she played several different
roles in "The Color Purple." She traveled in
the national tours of "Rock of Ages and "Ain't
Misbehavin." Appearing with her are troupe
members Ariel Blue, Tsadok Porter, Alyssa
White, Santoy Campbell and Mikey Mendez.
Also in the show and performing with the trope
for the first time are Steve Cannon, Damienne
Flagler and Chakara Rosa.
Jacobs said he was inspired to complete
this work by the success of last season's show
about Marvin Gaye.
WBTT theater is located at 1646 10th Way
in Sarasota. Subscriptions for the 2011-2012,


which has been in my mind for
more than a few years. I think
the audience
"Love Sung in the Key of
Aretha" will play through Jan
16. Performances are at 8 p.m.
Tuesday through Saturday and
at 2 p.m. Sunday.
"A Raisin in the Sun" follows STANLEY
and will play from Jan. 25 to
Feb. 19. It was written by Lorraine Hansberry.
March 7, the troupe will open "Sammy
Tonight," a tribute to the late Sammie Davis Jr. It
will play through April 1.
Closing the season is "Black Bird, the Story
of Josephine Baker," with libretto and lyrics by
Sherman Yellen and music by Wally Harper.
Tickets are $28 per person for each of the
shows and can be purchased at the troupe's
Sarasota ticket office, 1343 Main St., Ste. 300
B. Season tickets for all four shows are $75 per
person. The theater is at 1646 10th Way, behind
the Binz Building which is at the corner of 10th
Street and Orange Avenue in Sarasota.
The website, funded by a $10,000 grant from
the Community Foundation of Sarasota County
is at www.wbttsrq.org. The grant allowed the
troupe to upgrade its technology with new
equipment, train staff and provide internet ac-
cess for credit card processing.
Jacobs said that WBTT is the only profes-
sional black theater company on the west coast
of Florida. Several artists who got heir start
with the troupe have gone on to have success-
ful careers in several other areas, including
Broadway. Last year 13-year-old troupe mem-
ber Chris Eisenberg made it to the top 48 of
"America's Got Talent."

Visually impaired


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
The Asolo Repertory Company is offering
several "AudioDescription" performances of
its shows this season.
In most theatrical productions, even the best
actors are usually supported by other elements
such as: costumes, sets and lighting.
For the visually impaired, it is a challenge
to understand what is happening as the story
progresses. In addition to missing the visual clues
available to most theatre patrons, the visually im-
paired also miss out on the color and movement
of musical numbers and even the decor chosen
for a bedroom farce.
Trained AudioDescription volunteers can do


'see'


a lot to make up the difference for theater-goers
who cannot see. Using small FM radios, the vol-
unteers describe the sets and costumes, props
and other details that will enrich the experience
for visually impaired patrons., who listen to the
descriptions on headsets provided by the theater.
Wearing a mask over my eyes, I experienced
this a few years ago during an Asolo Rep produc-
tion in the Mertz Theatre. Volunteers are trained
to give concise descriptions that do not interfere
with the words of the actors so the visually im-
paired can hear the story unfold with the addition
of the descriptions given by the volunteers. Had
I not had the descriptions, attending a play that I
could not see would have been a frustrating ex-
perience as it must be for those who truly cannot

Florida Studio Theatre Gompertz expansion moves along


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
One year from now, Florida Studio Theatre
will have two retail spaces in its renovated
Gompertz Theatre space.
FST's third theatre space may become the
crown jewel of the three-theatre complex on Palm
Avenue and First Street in downtown Sarasota,
if architectural renderings are a clue. The retail
spaces, part of an 18,000-square foot addition
featuring two new theater spaces, will be on the
corner of First Street and Cocoanut Avenue. The
addition and renovation of the Gompertz Theatre
which FST purchased in 2002 is being funded by
the largest capital campaign in the history of FST
- $5.6 million.
FST is seeking proposals for businesses that


would fit in the 175-square spaces and also com-
plement the theater. Proposals, including mission
statement, references, principal's backgrounds
and products to be sold, should be sent to General
Manager James Lemons by Jan. 13 jlemons@flo-

For questions, call 941-366-9017.
There also will be a cafe on the premises.
"It will take eight to 10 years to get the new facility
to capacity, founding director Richard Hopkins said
when the new plans were announced last month
At that time, $4.4 million was raised.
The Gompertz building was built in 1926 and
operated first as a movie theater. In 1950 it was the
home of the old Palm Tree Playhouse and later was
the home of TheatreWorks until about 2000. When

abundance of entertainment for you. Here is a list
of some of the entertaining events the Cultural
Center is bringing you.
On Jan. 4, the Cultural Center dinner theater

will knock your socks off with his vocal talents.
He's back by popular demand with his renditions
of everything from classics to Elvis to opera.
Brian will have you on your feet. Dinner and a
show is $23 for Cultural Center members, $25/
non-members. Show is $8 for Cultural Center

more are $6 per person.
Contestants are signing up to help their healthy
resolutions. Jan. 9 is the kickoff for the Cultural Cen-
ter's Biggest Losers 8. More prizes, more fun losing

Take a look at the exciting class schedule for
The Learning Place at the Cultural Center. Over

At Florida's new Legoland, the fun stacks up


BY PAUL ABERCROMBIE
Special to The Washington Post
Most parents wouldn't think of wear-
ing paper-thin flip-flops around so
many Legos. After all, these brightly
colored bricks aren't merely the building
blocks of countless childhood imaginations;
they are the IEDs of adult orthopedics.
But this isn't your typical kiddie play date.
I'm at just-opened Legoland Florida with my
9-year-old son, Ewan, and his pals Emmie,
9, and Ethan, 11.
This fifth and largest Legoland park
in the world is less than an hour's drive east


of our home in Tampa. In other words, an
ideal Saturday outing.
At midmorning, the parking lot is already
half full. As soon as we stroll under the Lego-
land Florida sign (made with Legos, natch), we
know that we're in Lego heaven. Smiles on kids
and grown-ups alike, and not a stray piece of
geometric plastic anywhere. (Granted, the park
had been open only a week.)
There are clearly some hard-core Lego
fans here, both kids and nostalgic middle-
agers decked out in Lego T-shirts. More than
a few clutch original Lego creations.
My son is still firmly in the Lego loco

camp. Only a few months ago did he con-
cede that it was time to return the Lego-
building table to neighbors who'd lent it to us
until their then-newborn son was old enough
for it. Ziploc bags of Legos are now stashed
in drawers.
My gang makes a beeline for the closest
roller coaster, the Dragon. "That was kind of
tame," Ewan says afterward. This from a kid
whose last trip to Busch Gardens in Tampa
included seven back-to-back sorties aboard
the gut-churning (to me) SheiKra coaster.
To be fair, the park touts itself as the only
one in Central Florida aimed at the 2- to
12-year-old crowd. Interactive attractions,
live shows and 50 rides are of the not-too-
scary "pink knuckle" variety.
With Emmie's turn to pick the next activity,
she opts for Boating School. The drivable
craft are pokey, but we quickly warm to the
ride when we realize that we can treat the
boats like aquatic bumper cars. Ethan's
next selection, of Coastersaurus, a wooden
coaster, also wins universal approval. "That
was like a pinball machine," Ewan says
deliriously.
Legoland Florida also has a true theme
park rarity: sculptures that kids willingly
pose with for photos. My charges are among
hordes who can't keep their hands (and feet)
off so many life-size and larger critters
and cars obsessively constructed from 50
million-plus Lego blocks around the 150-acre
park. We're talking everything from wee vam-
pire bats suspended from the ceiling in the
Castle coaster to Albert Einstein's 20-foot-
tall mustachioed melon greeting visitors to
the Imagination Zone.
The park's most classic and impres-
sive use of Legos can be found in
Miniland USA, a kind of 3-D map of Ameri-
can landmarks rendered in umpteen little
plastic bricks. Washington's monuments are
painstakingly re-created, as are New York's
skyline, San Francisco's waterfront and the
Las Vegas Strip. The Sunshine State even
gets its share of miniaturized models.
Besides finding ways to avoid riding more
extreme coasters myself, my second goal
at amusement parks is scoring decent grub.
I've lied without conscience to my son about
a particular restaurant's being closed rather
than stomach cruddy food.
If lunch at Cap'n Brickbeard's Burg-
ers, in Pirates' Cove, is indicative of park
provisions, no fudging about food will be
necessary here. I ask the cashier to repeat
himself when I think he's just told me that
kids' burger-and-fries meals come with a

Memories can lead to 'Doorways'


BY MCCLAREN MALCOLM
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Were you ever offered a penny for your
thoughts; how about $50 for your
memories? That's what "Doorways,"
a memoir magazine, sponsored by Senior
Friendship Centers, pays. Part-time and full-time
residents of Sarasota and Manatee counties can
submit their life stories to "Doorways" which is
published annually.
Writing memoirs may lead to a writing career
as it did for Madonna Dries Christensen.
Christensen, editor of "Doorways," did not start
out with a life goal to write. However she did have
a strong interest in family history On her first
attempt writing a family-history essay, her effort
was published. While getting published seemed
easy, it wasn't to last. Subsequent attempts
came up dry.
At that point, Christensen, now motivated by
her early success and desire to record family
history, "took writing classes, attended seminars,
read writers' magazines" and most importantly,
wrote daily.
"I learned that rejection comes with the terri-


tory; it's not the end of the line. It's the opinion
of the editor, who, for one or more reasons, can't
use your work. I learned that the best way to
learn to write well is to write."
Gradually she built a body of published works.
Christensen says, I began to think "of myself as a
writer." She had developed a nose for story and
grit to see it through to publication. As an ex-
ample of how far she has come with her writing,
no other author came up with the true story about
a swindler who conned J. Edgar Hoover. This
book of intrigue is entitled "Masquerade."
Her book, "Swinging Sisters" is equally unusual
with a surprise ending creative nonfiction
account of an all-girl band in the '30s. "The Texas
Rangerettes," so accomplished, they got regular
billing in Variety, Billboard and space in Time
Magazine.
In all, her work is published in five books,
many e-books, and family histories. Her fiction
and nonfiction are printed in more than 100
publications. A three-time Pushcart nominee with
many other awards for her writing, Christensen's
greatest enjoyment comes from writing life history
and memoir. "That's how and why I became as-

Lemon conducts



creativity workshop


PROVIDED BY LISA RUBENSTEIN

he Hermitage Artist Retreat and
Sarasota-Manatee Dance Alliance will
present renowned dancer/choreog-
rapher/filmmaker Ralph Lemon and Maria
Jimena Paz, an Argentinian dancer/choreog-
rapher next week at Sarasota Ballet's Studio
20.
Dubbed the Creative Process, the work-
shop will be held from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. today
in the studio at Pineapple Square, 20 N.
Lemon Ave., Sarasota. The workshop is free
and open to the public.
"Our community programs are a constant
source of pride and inspiration," said Bruce
E. Rodgers, Hermitage executive director.
"The artists working at the Hermitage are
some of the best in the world. Being able to
share them with the public, as well as the
many exceptional arts organizations in our
community, is a benefit we are constantly
enthused about. For anyone interested in the
creative process, the Dec. 28 program will be
a unique opportunity to learn from the best."
The Creative Process workshop will be
applicable to all creative thinkers and
disciplines.
Those attending may participate or simply
observe. Space is limited so reservations are
requested. For information or to register, call
Carol Gaskin at 941-377-7640 (11 a.m. to
9 p.m.) or email Carol@ EditorialAlchemy.
com.
"We'll focus on the body-mind continuum,"
Lemon said, "exploring the creative play
involved in activating the everyday and the
actions) of 'making,' from nothing more than
our bodies and the essential environment
around us. We'll begin the workshop with a
half-hour Feldenkrais awareness through
movement lesson."
Lemon, often described as uncatego-
rizable, is the artistic director of Cross
Performance, a company dedicated to the
creation of cross-cultural and cross-disci-
plinary performance. His projects expand the
definition of choreography by crossing and
stretching the boundaries between Western,
postmodern dance, and other art forms and
cultures. For each project, Lemon builds a
team of collaborating artists from diverse
cultural backgrounds, countries, and artistic
disciplines, who bring their own histories and
aesthetic voices to the work.
Projects develop organically over a period
of years, with frequent public sharing
of work-in-progress, and the culminating
artworks derive from the artistic, cultural,
historic, and emotional material uncovered
in this rigorous creative research process.


Maria Jimena Paz has worked with a virtual
Who's Who of the modern dance world, in
addition to teaching master classes and
Feldenkrais method to professional dancers.
"As the new year approaches, this Dec.
28 workshop will be a perfect afternoon to
devote to new thinking, and approaches
to problem solving and learning," Rodgers
continued. "We look forward to sharing these
two world-class artists with the Sarasota-
Manatee community."
The Hermitage is a not-for-profit artist
retreat located at 6660 Manasota Key Road
in Englewood. It brings mid-career paint-
ers, sculptors, writers, playwrights, poets,
composers and other artists from all over the
world for extended stays on its 8.5-acre cam-
pus. Each artist is asked to contribute two
services to the community during their stay.
So far, Hermitage artists have touched more
than 7,000 Gulf Coast community children
and adults with their unique and inspiring
programs. For more information about the
Hermitage Artist Retreat, call 941-475-2098
or visit www.HermitageArtistRetreat.org.

Hendrick's Food Vault


BY JON BAUMANN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Hendrick's Food Vault, located on U.S. 41
South at the Cross Trails Center in Punta
Gorda, offers a variety of delights.
On most days it is a deli and bakery, offering in
house light breakfast and lunch choices with food
delivery options, and most recently a nighttime
lounge.
Many things to many people but to the owners,
Eileen and Colm Hendrick, it's all about the food.
Eileen and Colm started this venture three years
ago.
"We decided what we wanted to do is bring
real honest food to Punta Gorda so you can eat
good food in a hurry, but not processed food."
Colm adds, "If we say it's turkey, it's 100 percent
turkey. No additives."
There are many different possibilities to try.
Breakfast sandwiches, bagels, muffins and crois-
sants are offered by master baker Nancy Cuffaro,
and lunch offers an extensive hot and cold menu
to choose from.
Also check out the latest innovation to the
Food Vault, the Chill-Out Lounge. The lounge,
which opened earlier this year, is a concept
unique to the food service industry The deli by
day converts to a lounge by night where patrons
stay as long as they like, eating and drinking
as much or as little as they wish, while old time
movies, such as "Casablanca," play as wallpaper
around the room. It's all to help the visitor chill


out and relax.
"My wife and I found the bars in Punta Gorda
very macho and the restaurants tend to rush you
out the door after your meal to make room for
the next customer. The Chill-Out Lounge is not
a restaurant and it's not a bar." Colm said. "It's a
very, very relaxing environment. You tell us when
you want the check, not the other way around."
The lounge takes only 20 minutes to set up, but
the atmosphere is truly night and day different.
Another aspect of Hendrick's Food Vault is the
catering service. Businesses and workers can
call, fax or submit their orders through the inter-
net for breakfast or lunch and have it delivered to
their door.
Colm explains, "We do a lot of that. We also
do big catering on the higher end." Weddings,
parties and family gatherings are events that can
be catered by the Hendrick crew, but it's not the
main focus of the business. 'We do two or three
a month. We're very selective about it. Although
you make a lot of money at catering, it's not our
main business. Our business is here in the store."
With Colm focused on the quality of the food
that is prepared and wife Eileen taking care of
the business and administrative end of the Food
Vault, the pair have created a dining experience
that is as unique as it is memorable.
Hendrick's Food Vault is open Monday through
Saturday. The deli hours are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. with
breakfast served from opening to 11 a.m. and
lunch served from 11 a.m to 3 p.m. The Chill-Out

Rock 'N Rhythm to perform


at New Year's Eve bash


BY SHIRLEY GEORGE
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Dynamic duo, "Rock 'N Rhythm" will
perform at 8 p.m. at the New Year's Eve
bash at Alligator Park, 6400 Taylor Road
in Punta Gorda. It is open to the public at $10 per
person. Bring your own beverage and snacks.
For tickets, call Patty Walker at 941-575-7993.
Linda Atkinson and Carolyn Krotzer met
through mutual friends. Their love of singing
prompted them to form a duo that is receiving
wonderful response from audiences at
local venues.You'll sure to hear some of your
favorites from the '40s to current popular tunes
including blues, doo wop, rock 'n roll, disco and
country.
Atkinson learned to harmonize as a young girl.
"I sang with my dad in the cellar of our Philadel-
phia home," she said. Linda didn't sing in public
until about five years ago. She was lead female
singer with "Doo Wop Crew" for three years that
performed at venues on Florida's east and west
coasts. "When I left the group, Carolyn and I
decided we wanted to sing together."
Born and raised in Punta Gorda, Krotzer
learned to love music at any early age. Her dad
had a local band and sang Hank Williams songs.
"People loved my dad's music, and I loved jam-


ming with him. I wanted to be just like him," she
said.
Krotzer and some friends started the 'The
Charlotte Noteables" in 2000 and performed
numerous shows at the Charlotte County Cultural
Center. She has also performed with a few local
bands at area clubs.
The duo claims they feel strongly that people
want to hear songs the way they remember them,
not interpretations.'When people hear a certain
song, it brings back lots of great memories," Atkin-
son said.
The duo's musical influences include the
Duprees, Patsy Cline, Motown, Reba McEntire,
Tanya Tucker, and Trisha Yearwood.
"We like to learn the nuances of our songs
and the artists," Atkinson said. "We may practice
a song 30 to 40 times until we're satisfied it's as
true as we can sing it."
Krotzer's husband, Miles, operates the sound
equipment. Jim, Atkinson's husband, helps trans-
port the equipment. "Jim's also our bodyguard,"
Atkinson laughed.
Rock 'N Rhythm will perform at public venues,
special events or private parties.
For booking information, call Krotzer at
941-625-4249, Atkinson at 941-661-4294 or
email rock-n-rhythm@comcast.net.

Chef Aby Maru

Kumo Japanese Steak House & Sushi


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Like many chefs, Aby Maru started out
cooking for fun. Luckily for him, he was
able to find a career that enabled him to
keep cooking-and keep having fun.
Growing up in Asia as one of three siblings,
Maru said he always loved cooking. "It started
out as a hobby," he said. "I would cook lots of
different kinds of Thai and Japanese foods."
As a young man, he attended a special school
to learn how to perfect the different styles of
Asian cuisine.
Later, he would move to Orlando to work
as a chef at a resort hotel. "I have been in this
country for two and a half years," said Maru. He
found that a career as a hibachi chef, a chef
who cooks meals for customers on a grill right
in front of them, suited him perfectly.
Maru is now a hibachi chef at Kumo
Japanese Steak House & Sushi, and travels
between its Sarasota, Venice and new North
Port locations. He says that though the most
important aspect of his job is the quality of
food he provides for his customers, he does
enjoy interacting with them as well. "My job is
to entertain the customers while cooking," he
said. "I'm always having fun with the customer,
because I know if I'm happy, they're happy."


He also likes the hibachi style of cooking,
which enables him to practice his art in front
of the diners. "They see it on the grill before I
cook it," he said, "and they know exactly what
they're getting-fresh vegetables and fresh
meats."
Maru says that the most popular hibachi
menu items at Kumo are the steak, shrimp
and chicken combinations, which all include
clear soup, house salad, vegetable, shrimp
appetizer and fried rice. Kumo also has a full
sushi menu, as well as Japanese entrees from
the kitchen.
When he's not working at one of the three
Kumo restaurants, Maru enjoys-cooking. "I
love cooking and trying out new things on the
grill," he said.
Kumo Japanese Steak House & Sushi has
three locations: 17945 Tamiami Trail, North
Port. 941-426-5866; 1740 East Venice Ave.,
Venice. 941-488-5866 and 5231 University
Parkway, Sarasota. 941-355-5866.

'Mission Impossible 4'


BY COLIN COVERT
STAR TRIBUNE (MINNEAPOLIS
Brad Bird has made some of the more bril-
liant and thrilling animated movies of the
past two decades, if not of all time. He
pushed the boundaries of feature animation with
"The Iron Giant," and won best-animated-feature
Oscars with "The Incredibles" and "Ratatouille,"
merging commercial and critical success. But


Actor Tom Cruise and wife Katie Holmes attend th
premiere of"Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol
field Theatre on Dec.19, 2011 in New York


Bird scorns complacency, quoting Steve Jobs'
2005 commencement address at Stanford
University: "Stay hungry. Stay foolish."
Now Bird is dreaming bigger, navigating a
new high-stakes testing ground. His live-action
directing debut is the stunt-heavy mega-budget
Tom Cruise adventure "Mission: Impossible -
Ghost Protocol," opening Friday.
The production traveled to locations in
Russia, the Czech Republic,
Canada, the United States and
Dubai, where Cruise rappels
down the face of the tower-
ing Burj Khalifa skyscraper.
Surprisingly, Bird said dangling

"It's all shots and storytell-
ing," Bird said. While live-action
films are using more of the
techniques of digital animation,
he knew that going on location
and "actually, physically" hang-
ing Cruise a quarter-mile above
the city would give viewers
a visceral thrill that could be
captured no other way.
The "Mission: Impossible"
franchise offered Bird consider-
able latitude. Cruise, who also
produces the films, has hired a
different director for each of its
four installments. In this outing,

ing co-star Simon Pegg and
newcomers Jeremy Renner

The Iron Lady (PG-13)


The Iron Lady is a surprising and
intimate portrait of Margaret Thatcher
(Meryl Streep), the first and only
female Prime Minister of The United


chapter a more playful feel and a hero who is
extraordinarily skilled yet still human.
"I liked the fact that each one had different
vibes to them.Tom wanted each film to have the
flavor of its director, and that's one of the things
that attracted me." Some of Bird's favorite films
are action movies laced with humor "and not T-
shirt lines that are meant to be quoted later. Not
wink-wink-nudge-nudge humor, either, but stuff
that comes out of character."
Bird loves "Raiders of the Lost Ark," he
said, "because it has this wonderful balance
between the energy and pace and peril of the
action sequences and the way you're con-
tinually engaged by the character of Indiana
Jones.You like him and there's a wit to the way
he's presented. I could say the same for the
first'Die Hard' movie. There's a lot of humor
in it, but it never comes at the expense of the
action."
One such moment comes when Cruise's
superspy, Ethan Hunt, is informed he'll have to
climb across the sheer glass face of the Burj
tower aided only by some glue gloves. Time is
running out, but there's a cut to Cruise's thun-
derstruck expression and a beat of hesitation
before he tackles the stunt.
"I really hate it when action stars think they
look cool by blithely facing danger and acting
mildly bored," Bird said. "Roger Moore's James
Bond always looked like he was between
saunas. Sean Connery was clearly a tough guy,
but he'd get in these action scenes and you'd
see his life flash before his eyes. That made you
invest in the character because he became real."
The "Mission: Impossible" stunt sequences
presented Bird with challenges like nothing he'd
ever faced. "The sequence on the Burj was so

logistically complex to pull off. Not just to be up
there with our actor but also filming it in Imax,"
whose special 70mm cameras are huge, heavy
and noisy. "We definitely made it about as hard
as we could make it and still manage to survive
and tell the tale."
The biggest bonus from directing live action,
Bird said, is spontaneity. "I like being able to
throw something at an actor right before the
camera goes on and see something happen.
Then you have something magic that happened
that one time only. There's a scene in the film
between Jeremy Renner and Simon Pegg that
was done all in one take where they threw each
other curves and responded to the curves, and
it was this incredibly alive moment. That's the
kind of thing you can't have happen the same
way in animation."
He holds both in equal esteem, but Bird said
that in the movie industry, directing live action is
"taken more seriously. For a long time, anima-
tion has been seen as the kids' table." He noted
that no maker of animated films has ever been
nominated for best director. "The animated film
Oscar is wonderful, but it tends to separate ani-
mation from the rest of movies. I was honored
to be nominated for best original screenplay
a couple of times because I was competing
against all films, not just with animated films. I
like being in the larger pond."
While his new film will certainly open the door
to a live-action directing career for Bird, he says
he plans to remain active in Pixar as part of the
creative oversight committee. "I'm not there as
much, obviously, but I'm still keeping my hand
in. It's an amazing company, a mutually sup-
portive team of really talented people, and I love
those guys."

reality, paving the way for that one performance

by Vienna's beloved'Waltz King', Johann
Strauss Jr. and his famous contemporaries.
