'Get it done'


City government year in review


By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR
City government in Venice
spent the year reinventing
itself.
The goal: recover from the
Great Recession.
A newly elected council
majority led by Mayor John
Holic, a financial expert and
fiscal conservative, spent the
better part of the year with his
colleagues dissecting the city
budget.
Their motto: Get it done.
Council managed to
balance the budget with a
rollback tax rate and without
exhausting reserves by cut-
ting a number of positions
and whittling away expenses.
Along the way they cut
$3.2 million and eliminated
17 positions, most of them
through attrition.
Symbolically, council did
away with free health care
insurance for a select few
retired officials and instituted
a new health plan for city
employees.


Holic estimates the city will
save $30 million over the next
20 years due to the changes
made this year.
Directives this year included
cutting overtime, cutting
the use of city vehicles, and
no pay increase. Expense
accounts were put under the
microscope.
Council is in the process of
curbing special pay and other
monetary perks identified in
budget workshops throughout
the year.
A study of utilities billing
practices and backflow device
charges is under way. In the
meantime, the utilities rate
increase scheduled for Nov. 1
was delayed until the study is
completed.
A new fire fee is also under
review.
More importantly, council
identified its next fiscal target
for overhaul next year city
pension funds, which are
heavily underfunded.
The changes are likely to
start an exodus of long time
employees.


Council was unable to keep
its 2010 campaign promise
not to micromanage city
affairs, but did take a few
steps in that direction with
new hires.
Tom McNulty was promoted
to police chief.
Council went back and forth
on making Nancy Woodley,
the acting city manager,
permanent in the position,
but ultimately decided to seek
new leadership. They'll inter-
view finalists in a few weeks.
Council completed a new
airport layout plan and master
plan update under review for
more than four years, signal-
ing an end to contentious
relations with the Federal
Aviation Administration.
The ALP was adopted in
June and approved condi-
tionally by the FAA in July.
The MPU followed shortly
thereafter.
The comprehensive plan
finished in 2010, which sets
density and height rules

Former city



manager closer



to suing city


By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR
This week former city
manager Marty Black, through
his attorney, upped the ante
in hopes of maintaining free
health care coverage.
He sent a draft complaint
through Icard Merrill in Sara-
sota against the city that will
be filed with the 12th Circuit
court unless his previous
arrangement is honored.
Beginning in January, Black
and six others will be required
to pay the same health insur-
ance premium as other retir-
ees. In his case, it amounts to a
monthly bill for family health-
care coverage in the amount of
$621.24.
Black said he essentially has
a contract with the city that


entitles him to
free health insur-
ance for life. He
relied upon it
when he retired .. 4.
in 2008, and
actually stated in
his June 24, 2008,
retirement letter BLACK
to the mayor and
city employees that he made
the decision "in reliance upon
the city's personnel procedures
and rules."
Those rules were changed
in June of this year, after
months of consideration.
They removed language in
personnel rules allowing
insurance contributions to
remain at his pre-retirement
level of zero.

FRIENDS OF THE VENICE COMMUNITY CENTER


Donations mark


nonprofit'

By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR
In August, a tiff between the
county and Friends of the Ven-
ice Community Center Inc.,
a nonprofit whose volunteers
have raised money for the cen-
ter for more than 30 years, had
come to a head.
The group announced it was
calling it quits. Friends still
plan to let its 501(c) (3) status
lapse in February.
But what to do with the
thousands the group raised on
behalf of the center?
This month Vera Nash,
Friends president, announced
it would disburse the remain-
ing funds from its treasury
not to the center, but to other


s final act

worthy causes.
"Our board decided that our
money should be used to show
our appreciation to some orga-
nizations in the Venice area,"
Nash said.
"We feel good about our
contributions to meaningful
organizations, and very much
appreciate the positive com-
ments which we have had
from them."
The group sent checks in the
amount of $3,000 each to the
South County Food Bank and
the Salvation Army; Habitat
for Humanity received $1,000.
Checks for $500 will go to
Friends of the Venice Library,
American Legion, Venice Art

Business year in review: Indications good for 2012


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST
Assuming the predictions of
downtown merchants inter-
viewed last week are accurate,
Venice is going to experience
more visitors from surround-
ing cities. Spending was up for
pre-season at all of the stores
I visited and overwhelmingly
the feeling was it indicates a
good upcoming season.
Several retailers experienced
cash tills ringing more pre-sea-
son sales than recorded four
years ago. The past few years
of promotional television spots
and promotional advertising


by Venice MainStreet Inc. on
behalf of local merchants
seems to be bringing results
with reports of visitors arriving
from cities north to Tampa and
south to Fort Myers for a day
of shopping and dining at local
establishments.
Could it be Venice is at last
becoming the gem of the
southwest Suncoast for its
appealing old world shop-
ping atmosphere and variety
of restaurants? With help
from the warm and sunny fall
temperatures everything has
favored the city in its efforts to
promote local tourism.
"Pre-season started early


and I think season is going
to be good," said Kay Ann
Kropac, owner of Caf6 Venice.
"I don't know yet if we are back
to where things used to be, but
I think things are moving in
the right direction."
Resort and swimwear store
co-owner Dave Wilson of Sun-
Bug said that in October and
November there were more
people here for sure.
"For our business, Decem-
ber has been a busy month
enjoying beyond-good weather
with locals bringing customers
to us, their friends, relatives
and whoever is visiting. It is a
good sign by far the economy


is improving and for sure we
are expecting a good season,"
Wilson said.
"Pre-season in November
was our best ever and over
2007 numbers," said Rosanne
Brown of Venice Stationers.
"People were buying early,
especially our holiday prod-
ucts so December will be up as
well and I am very optimistic
about the upcoming season."
"Venice is being discovered,
I cannot tell you how many
people we are getting from
Sarasota who make it a day
with lunch and shopping."
Brown believes this shop-
ping district is unique. Once


discovered, tourists come back
because they cannot find this
many quality shops anywhere
else, she said.
"It's very refreshing for
someone used to seeing the
same old store wherever they
go."
Irene Bremert, owner of
Cleopatra's Boutique, has had
a very good Christmas season
with many customers say-
ing they want to shop locally.
Customers come from all over,
Sarasota, Cape Coral and Fort
Myers, she said.
"Right now we have a lot of

It's been over a year
since the city of Venice and
Sarasota County agreed to
place a number of SCAT

to their design and build

This week Mayor John
Holic urged county offi-
cials to keep at it, saying it
would be nice to have them
installed early in the year
as the city plans its 85th
anniversary.
County officials commit-
ted to providing a timeline
to the city in early January,
but still has to advertise a
bid before SCAT can start
construction.

plish this work as quickly
as possible," said Sarah

Representatives of Tos-

at Knights Trail Road and
Laurel Road, made a pitch
last week in a preconfer-
ence hearing before the
city planning commission
to add 21.5 acres to its
development.


Commissioners received
assurances of adequate
buffering and most signifi-
cantly, that the property,
located next to the old
planned Renaissance de-
velopment, would not exit
onto Laurel Road.
A more formal proposal
will be submitted to the
planning commission for
future consideration. The
additional property will be
used for single family resi-
dences, and not for multi-
unit housing.

Corinne B.
Hemstreet
Corinne B. Hemstreet,
passed away Friday,
Dec. 23, 2011, in
Cleveland, Ohio.
She is survived by
her dear husband of
64 years, A. Robert;
daughters, Maryellen H.
Smith, Anne H. Burr (the
late Bo); son, Robert J.;
and beloved grandchil-
dren, Scott H. Burr and
Corinne A. Burr. She was
preceded in death by her
cherished parents Mary
MacHaffie and John C.
Banton.
Corinne was 87 years
young when she passed
away. Her zest for life
and youthful spirit made
her a joy to be with. She
was open and loving,
kind, thoughtful and
profoundly appreciative.


After raising her family,
Corinne returned to col-
lege to finish her bach-
elor's degree. She gradu-
ated with honors from
SUNY Oswego in 1969
and was immediately
hired as a fifth-grade
teacher by the Central
Square School District in
New York State.
A few years later, she
was asked to participate
in an experimental pro-
gram teaching a multi-
age classroom of third-,
fourth- and fifth-graders.
Though it was more chal-
lenging, she enthusiasti-
cally took it on and loved
it. Her students thrived.
After returning to
school for a master's
degree, she became read-
ing consultant and then
curriculum consultant
for the entire school dis-
trict until her retirement
in 1986.
Corinne saw retirement
as an opportunity to
pursue her other passions
in life. Joining her love
of history and children's
literature, Corinne wrote
"Links to Freedom," a
fictionalized account of
the "Jerry Rescue" which
took place in Syracuse,
N.Y., in 1851. She pub-
lished "Links to Freedom"
in 2006. A second book,
"Thyme for Herbs: Mis-
sives from a Decade in
the Garden" was pub-
lished in 2009; "Thyme
for Herbs" collected the
best of Corinne's weekly
herb gardening column,
which appeared in the
Thousand Islands Sun
newspaper from 1994 to
2004.
With the intention of
writing another children's
book, Corinne also spent
several years researching
the story of Molly Brant,
a prominent Mohawk
Indian who lived during
the time of the American
Revolution. In recent
years she was invited to
join the PEO sisterhood
in Venice, Fla., demitting
to a Cleveland Chapter in
2010. She was a member
of the Knitwits and the
Knitwits Book Group,
yoga class and Poker Play-
ers. When asked recently


about her constant state
of youthfulness, Corinne
declared that she owed
it to "living dangerously
and eating exotic foods."
She is dearly loved by
her family and a multi-
tude of friends and will
be greatly missed.
Services: A memorial
service was held at 1 p.m.
Wednesday, Dec. 28, at
the Federated Church, 76
Bell St., Chagrin Falls, OH
44022.
Contributions: In lieu
of flowers, donations
can be made to the FLC
Gardens at Federated
Church, designated for
the Corinne Hemstreet
Herb Garden.

Steve Savanick, 80, of
Venice, Fla., formerly
of Middleburg, Ohio,
passed away
-. Dec. 29, 2011.
,' : He was born
July 16, 1931, in
New Salem, Pa.
Steve served in the U.S.
Army and was a member
of the American Legion
Post 159, Venice, Fla. He
was a retired tool and
die maker with General
Motors.
Steve will be greatly
missed by his wife of 13
years, Marva; daughters,
Cynthia Savanick of
Cleveland, Ohio, Shelley
(Robert) Gettemey and

:WEEKEND EDITION DECEMBER 31, 2011


Tourist council schedules 2012 meetings


STAFF REPORT
The Sarasota County
Tourist Development
Council will hold at least
three meetings in South
County during 2012.
The TDC schedule
released recently showed
the council will meet at
the Robert L. Anderson
Administration Center,
4000 South Tamiami
Trail, South Venice, on
Feb. 16, June 21 and
Sept. 20. Meetings are
the third Thursday of the
month at 4 p.m.
The North County
meetings, held at the


county Administration
Center, 1660 Ringling
Blvd., Sarasota, are
scheduled for April 19,
May 17, July 19 and
Nov. 15.
The remaining months
tentatively have no meet-
ing; however, there will
be no August meeting.
The TDC has 13 mem-
bers who serve four-year
terms. The council ad-
vises the county commis-
sion regarding tourism
policy and "oversees the
use of all tourist devel-
opment tax revenues
collected in Sarasota
County," according to the


county website.
Currently, Sarasota
County assesses a "bed
tax" of 5 percent. Dur-
ing the 2011 fiscal year,
approximately $11.4 mil-
lion was collected, a
4.9 percent increase over
FY 2010. Of that, beach-
less North Port collected
about $48,000, or less
than one-half of 1 per-
cent of the total. Venice
collected about $789,000,
or about 6.93 percent of
the total.
The unconsolidated
area, which includes
Englewood, collected
about $348,000, or


3.06 percent.
Each penny is estimat-
ed to generate approxi-
mately $2.3 million.
Of that, about 2 cents
(around $4.6 million)
goes toward tourist
promotion, almost 1.75
cents goes to county
beaches, and a half-cent
each goes toward the
arts, Ed Smith Stadium
and Nathan Benderson
Park.
The two areas that
collected the largest
percentage of tax are the
city of Sarasota ($3.6 mil-
lion, 31.75 percent) and
Siesta Key ($3.6 million,


31.68 percent).
The 2011 total marked
the first time since 2008
when the county collect-
ed a tax in the double-
digit millions. The totals,
starting from 2006 are
$7.4 million; 2007,
$8.6 million; 2008,
$10.5 million; 2009,
$9.6 million; and 2010,
$9.6 million.
Sarasota County levied
a 3 percent bed tax from
May 2007 until May 2010,
when another one-half
cent was levied. The final
half-cent, which brought
the total levy to the


maximum 5 percent, was
assessed beginning May
2011 and accounted for
an extra $391,534.
The TDC is chaired
by County Commission
Chair Nora Patterson.
City Commissioner Da-
vid Garofalo represents
North Port while City
Council Member John
Moore represents Venice.
Local representatives
include Roger Herber of
Warm Minerals Springs
Motel and John Ryan of
the Venice Area Chamber
of Commerce. There is
one position open.

County Commissioner
Jon Thaxton began con-

be able to run for a fourth
term next year.
"I started preparing
myself for two possible
futures in the month of
August, when I first heard
about the Telli-Snipes
decision," Thaxton, 54,
a licensed real estate
broker, said. "I didn't say
anything to anybody, but


and unenforceable in
Sarasota County in 2005.
Thaxton said he has "no
plans, I am still consid-
ering my options," if he
can't run again. He was
heartened by the Florida
Supreme Court's decision,
announced earlier this
month, to accept jurisdic-
tion in the Broward com-
missioners case. He and
his potential opponents
need the high court to
rule on the correctness of


able in Sarasota County
and, if so, whether cur-
rent and past terms count
against sitting commis-
sioners' tenure.
"That's why it needs
to be sooner rather than
later," he said. "Not nec-

was first elected in 2000,

will of 1998) was not an

which he ran unopposed.

are seeking to have that

possibly, to consolidate it

a commission candidate

Asked if he ever con-

in order to be allowed to
run for re-election next
year, Thaxton said, "That
would depend. What
would the lawsuit say? It's
so complicated that it's
hard to say."

all of us," Bremert said.
"My sales for Decem-

November was a great
month," said Sandy
McGowan of Sandy's
Designer Clothing.
A definite believer in
advertising in various

"Group advertising

the Venice Community

Making the transi-

things had been run for
decades. Along the way
feelings were hurt.
Nash said the partner-

the group to raise more

"Our sales have been
running ahead of both
2009 and 2010 since
this past June. I bought
heavily, with optimism,
despite hearing everyone
else was holding back
on purchasing. So my
inventory expenses and

Earlier this year the

could continue to work
at the center," Nash said.
But it never happened.
Instead, they closed

funds not to a county
organization, but directly
to Venice organizations

OTHER MILESTONES
IN VENICE IN 2011:
Venice High School's metamorphosis began, with
a new classroom building rising up three stories.
Students will move in next year. A new performance
center has yet to be built on campus.
The city stood its ground on widening the bypass.
A year of additional reviews raised concerns the
U.S. 41 Bypass widening project may not come to
pass. Council argued forcefully to stop the delays. The
Metropolitan Planning Organization is still consid-
ering whether to leave portions at four lanes. A final
decision is expected next month.
Since April the Venice Challenger Baseball League
has been looking for a field of its own. Negotiations
are still under way to develop a new complex within
Wellfield Sports Complex.
Also in April, the city received a $1 million dona-
tion to expand and preserve the city's archives.
In May, Venice's top cop, Tom McNulty, was sworn
in as police chief.
Scrapping became a sign of the times as arrests
skyrocketed against people looting abandoned homes
for copper.
In June, Jackson Laboratories, which hoped to
open a research arm in Sarasota County pulled the
plug when state incentives didn't materialize. Debates
over redistricting, a once-every-decade event, also
made headlines.

among other things,
triggered a new review of
land use regulations that
is anticipated to take sev-
eral years to complete.
Council amended the
comp plan early on,
eliminating expensive
studies and streamlin-
ing the plan. They also
agreed to use in-house
expertise to help consul-
tants. In all, those actions
should save the city more
than $1 million over the
next three years, Holic
said.
Economically, the city
began experiencing a
slow upswing.
New housing units

City Attorney Bob
Anderson previously
advised council of a
state attorney's deci-
sion that clearly states a
government employee
may not rely on govern-
ment handbooks as a
contractual obligation.
He challenged Black or
any of the "Venice 7" to
produce such a contract
that states otherwise.
Through his draft
filing, Black noted
he was promised the


Venice's fire chief sounded the alarm over budget
cuts. A study found the department could handle
the cuts, but council backed off. A former Venice
teacher, Diana O'Neill, who was acquitted of child
abuse charges filed two years earlier, spent the year
fighting to keep her teaching license. She succeeded.
In July, The Sun, a free weekly by Sun Coast
Media Group, made its debut. A month later the
Gondolier welcomed its new publisher Tim Smolarick
and "Sun" was taken off the Gondolier's masthead
after a graphic redesign.
The Gulf Coast Community Foundation made
headlines when it took"of Venice"off its name,
causing a community uproar.
In October, homeless camps were shut down, and
a North Venice mine shut down permanently.
In November, the Legacy Trail overpass opened,
finally connecting the 12-mile bike and pedestrian
trail to the island over U.S. 41, linking to the city's
Venetian Waterway Park trail.
Council picked a north-south connector route
that, when complete, will extend Jacaranda Boule-
vard north and give North Venice a second emergency
escape route.
Hurricane season concluded with no local storms.
In December, the local general aviation airport
experienced two crashes. One pilot walked away
unscathed when his plane hit electrical wires trying
to return to the airport. Another pilot died after the
plane he was flying crashed at the end of a runway.


within the city that had
all but disappeared
began a modest come-
back, with up to five
new permits pulled per
month.
Council ended the
moratorium on annexa-
tions when it brought
into Venice a parcel by
Laurel Road and Pine-
brook Road. A Publix
supermarket and strip
mall is planned.
Council approved a
rezone off Knights Trail
Road to create Toscana
Isles, with up to 1,700
units planned in the next
20 years.
Council adopted a tax
abatement program. Ter-
vis Tumbler and others
applied for and received
the benefit. In all, more
than 400 jobs were


coverage orally and by
council votes that were
taken, handbook or no
handbook.
"He (Black) has no
desire to engage the
city in litigation and all
of the negative aspects
that come with it," wrote
attorney Jason Lessinger,
on Black's behalf. "He
cannot, however, accept
the city's actions in elimi-
nating his right to no
cost medical insurance
and I am certainly of the
opinion that the city's
actions violate Florida
law. If necessary, he will
initiate suit to protect his
rights."

the program.
Unfinished is an over-
haul of the city permit
process. A new online bill-
ing system is under way.
The city also began
a marketing effort to
attract tourists. Bro-
chures were developed
and placed in five state
visitor centers. National
ads and articles featuring
Venice made their way
into U.S. Airways flight
magazine and other
publications.
Under Holic's leader-
ship, a city that some
say was headed toward
serious financial dis-
tress was reined in, and
expectations were set for
more trimming without a
future tax increase.


Lessinger said he
hoped the draft com-
plaint would stimulate
dialogue to "possibly
resolve this matter with-
out litigation."
The draft complaint
is based on implied
breach of contract and
seeks monetary relief
or, alternatively, to force
the city to continue the
benefit under the existing
arrangement.
Other former char-
ter officers and former
council members of the
"Venice 7" have also
threatened suit.

SUN NEWSPAPERS


OUR VIEW


Stability needed after challenging year of change


One word characterizes the
past year in Sarasota County:
Change.
It began in December 2010, when
Commissioner Shannon Staub of
Venice left the South County seat she
had occupied for 14 years.
Stepping down in mid-term, the
longtime incumbent was replaced by
Christine Robinson of Venice, a plan-
ning commission member who was
appointed by outgoing Gov. Charlie
Crist to fill the vacancy.
Robinson assimilated quickly, and
that was a good thing, considering
county government soon faced the
biggest challenge in a decade: a grow-
ing scandal involving procurement
practices that eventually consumed
the top echelon of county manage-
ment and created instability through-
out the organization.
The scandal built steadily fol-
lowing the arrest of county project
manager Rodney Jones in con-
nection with an alleged kickback
scheme centered in Palm Beach


County. The allegations that Jones
had steered contracts to one firm
in return for favors led to a wider
internal probe.
A handful of lower and mid-level
county employees lost their jobs.
A consultant was brought it to
assess the overall procurement situa-
tion, and the resulting report was not
flattering.
Clerk of theCounty Court Karen
Rushing began an investigation,
coordinated with a criminal investiga-
tion by the Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office. While no charges were brought
by the sheriff, Rushing's probe eventu-
ally showed a shoddy procurement
system with inadequate controls and
oversight.
By late spring, the whole mess
brought an end to the long tenure
of County Administrator Jim Ley.
Eventually, Jeff Seward, the longtime
chief financial operator, would be
eased out. Late in the year, Deputy
County Administrator Dave Bullock
took a job as administrator of the


town of Longboat Key.
To fill the gap at the top, county
commissioners turned to Terry
Lewis, the former North Port
police chief who had stepped in
as city administrator when Steve
Crowell was shown the door in
North Port. As another Lewis -
Jonathan Lewis was brought in
to North Port from Palm Bay, Terry
Lewis took over as interim county
administrator.
He brought a steady hand, con-
centrating on the immediate need to
tighten procurement practices and
creating positions to watch over the
process.
In November, commissioners found
a long-term replacement, Randall
Reid from Alachua County. He will
take over early this year.
Meanwhile, county commissioners
also stirred the waters with a redis-
tricting plan that kept current com-
missioners in place. It was no secret:
One stated criteria early in the process
was that board members would not


be penciled out or forced to compete
against one another.
But the maps, which appeared to be
self-serving, touched off allegations
of gerrymandering and opposition
centered in North Port.
Then came a court case involv-
ing term limits. If the state Supreme
Court decides in coming months
that voters may limit the tenure
of county commissioners, a 1998
charter amendment imposing two-
term limits could be put in effect.
The immediate impact would be
the loss of the popular, three-term
incumbent Jon Thaxton, who would
be prevented from running from
what is now a Mid and South County
coastal district.
Our hope now is that the court will
rule decisively and soon enough that
the election process can proceed
un-muddied.
Nevertheless, the new administra-
tion brings the promise of much-
needed stability after a year of turbu-
lence. That would be welcome.


A new year brings hope


Every day I go to my mailbox
filled with anticipation and
excitement. I just know that it's
the day I will get the informa-
tion from the city detailing the
interest earned on my water
utility deposit. One day I was
so excited when I saw city of
Venice on a letter. Imagine the
hope I felt. But alas it was not
to be that day. It was the water
bill, instead. Efficiency rings
true over there as the bill got out
on time. Today is the last day
for 2011 postal deliveries, so I
still have hope hope that no
group is ever singled out again.
Speaking of groups, there's a
group that is working very hard
to get a great message out con-
cerning the value of a building
entrenched in our history. The
Venice Circus Arts Foundation
is going to go after the funds
needed to save that building
with a fury in 2012. Strategic
meetings and planning models
are being formed. Soon the
group is going to be knocking
on doors seeking your help.
Some will answer the call and
that gives us hope. (All 4,500
seats are in the building. They
need to stripped and refur-
bished, and the seats have not
been stripped out of the build-
ing, as some seem to think)
John Osmulski and I have
decided next year our com-
munity deserves the most
elaborate boat parade in the
history of Venice. We are going
to start signing boats early.
We are going to promote like
crazy and shoot for 100 boats
delighting and entertaining
our citizens that's seven
boaters per month agreeing to
participate. Someone should
begin taking Christmas light
donations now and we can
organize a group of volunteers
to help our boaters decorate
that week. Call John or I and
we are happy to help. Yes, we
may have to have chairs lined
up for a week, and the city
may change for a bit, but the
magnificent show will be well
worth it. Our citizens will clean
up before they leave the area.
Hope we all pull together and


make the upcoming parade
and every one thereafter
monumental.
The management of our
city is a huge task in unprec-
edented times.
Our mayor and council face
challenges not faced in nearly
100 years. These are some
brave folks to put their name
on a ballot, win an election
and face the issues they do.
Obviously they knew going in it
was not going to be easy. Still,
they chose to serve. While we
may not agree on everything
that comes out of those meet-
ings, we should treat those
who serve us with respect and
dignity. After all, they were
elected, not appointed. Hope
- that the new year brings this
group more support as they
face the issues of the times
and the wisdom to get through
whatever pops up next.
There are needs in this com-
munity that are being served,
there are needs in this commu-
nity that need to be served that
have not yet been revealed.
There are organizations that
need help that may not be in
the community but touch so
many lives that you just have
to help. Then there are preven-
tion programs that must be
attended to, as forward think-
ing can prevent poverty down
the road. We have a founda-
tion, Gulf Coast Community
Foundation, that is active in
all of these and so much more.
I read what Ann Spaulding
wrote on Saturday in our paper
and thought to myself there
is hope. Hope that people can
find a way to forgive either per-
ceived or actual issues and get
on with the next 70 years.
Our business folks through-
out the region face more issues
than you can imagine. The big
stores, the chain restaurants
and major competition in pric-
ing give them challenges and
headaches never faced before.
Through all of this our mer-
chants find a way to make us
smile, give us the best service
and know most of us by name.
Darn it, that is huge and we are
fortunate to have them all. I
am not saying boycott anyone.
What I am hoping is that when
there is need and you can
make a choice, choose local.
Finally, here at the Venice
Gondolier, all of us HOPE that
your New Year is filled with
renewed spirit, continued hap-
piness and the promise of hope.

SWHAT ONE THING WOULD YOU CHANGE?


IF YOU COULD BE MAYOR FOR A DAY WHAT ONE THING WOULD YOU CHANGE?


CALL US AT 941-207-1111.
Ask, please. About whether
religious things should be on
government property, I think
we need to show respect for
people who are not religious
and who are not Christians.
Having them on public prop-
erty, property that everybody
paid taxes on regardless of
their religious affiliation or
even if they're not religious, is
disrespectful. You can argue as
to whether you should be able
to do it, but I think you should
ask, is that really a considerate
thing to do, and I don't think
it is.
Odorous. I'm calling about
the shelter and people saying
it is a good situation. I was in
that place one day and the
odor from the animals and the
small cages made me sick to
my stomach. I couldn't get the
odor out of my nose for hours.
I actually emailed the owner
and told him he had a fire
hazard because the place was
in such disarray you couldn't
move, junk every place. He
never responded. I did not
turn him in, but was very
happy to see those animals
and all of those fire hazards
shut down for a while. I wish
him luck in the future.
Bypass alternative. You
keep talking about the U.S.
41 Bypass and widening it.
Instead of widening it, they
should leave it the way it
is and run a south-bound
route down Seaboard Ave.
Then when it's finished, they
take the whole U.S. 41 and
make it a north-bound route.
That way, it would solve two
problems. You wouldn't have
to buy the businesses along
the way and it would make the
waterfront available for future
development.
Unions yes. Before unions,
workers were exploited. Long
hours, unsafe working condi-
tions and low wages were com-
mon. Unions made the middle
class.


Let 'em






















stand this. The country had
eight years of G.W Bush. He
ate up our surplus, started two
wars, left office and left the
country in one big hole. Why
would anyone want to vote
their party into office again?
Recycle arena. I'm call-
ing about the Circus Arena. I
think the metal in the building
should be recycled. There's no
way that building will be able
to be retrofitted economically
to meet current codes and to
house the priceless collections
that Gunther Gable Williams
and Dick Hyman are willing
to put inside of it. There are
some interesting aspects of
the building, like the bleach-
ers and other things that could
be saved and housed inside a
new building that meets all the
code requirements.
Airport vapors. Do what
you can as a council about
the vapor and noise pollut-
ing emitting from the Venice
Municipal Airport. Ten years
ago council said it was going
to take on the challenge to
alleviate these problems, to
address it in a very serious


way. You guessed it, nothing
constructive was ever done.
These vapors are a proven
hazard and you can detect
vapors halfway across the
island and into Jacaranda and
up and down the beach area,
depending on the wind. Again,
do your research. This is a
super challenge ahead for the
Venice City Council. Let's see
what they can do with a real
challenge.
Hmmm. "Sarasota, a city of
minimum wage with a view."
That's really profound.
Explore crash. Another
plane crash today at Venice
Municipal Airport. From the
smoke and flames, I guess a
fatality. A few days ago a Rus-
sian pilot walked away when
he crashed his little plane on
a powerful wire. Explanation:
pilot error. Hey, does anyone
remember when we trained
those 911 pilots right here in
Venice? Not a word more about
the pilot who walked away.
Homeland Security, CIA, FBI
and investigative reporters,
where are you? Where is the
pilot and what was he doing
here? I think a lot more needs
to be said and published about
this.

WEEKEND EDITION DECEMBER 31, 2011


A look back: The 2007 council did some good


From time to time
anonymous Let 'em Have
It contributors make neg-
ative comments about city
council's lack of positive
actions during the period
of 2007-2010.
A number of council
members served dur-
ing those years, some
supporting a number of
positive developments,
others opposed or less
supportive.
Here are some examples
of positive actions on
behalf of the citizens of
Venice, during those years,
which the several mem-
bers achieved:
Community involve-
ment. Council meeting
rules were changed so that
citizen's had increased
opportunity to take
part in discussion and
debate issues, including
specifically zoning and
other land development.
Instead of five minutes,
compared with the
development attorneys'
unlimited time, citizens
could ask to be recognized
as having standing and
afforded the same due
process rights. This was a
historic change in the past
pattern.


LETTERS FROM

OUR READERS

Big Oil strikes again
Editor:
The political scheming
in Congress to slip a rider
that would undermine
crucial reviews of the
Keystone XL tar sands
oil pipeline onto the
must-pass payroll tax cut
bill is the latest desper-
ate attempt by Big Oil to
force its agenda on the
American people.
Despite President
Obama's recent deci-
sion to take more time
to evaluate the massive
project and his threat to
veto any bill with a Key-
stone XL rider, oil indus-
try lobbyists continued
to hammer away on the
issue, churning out false
jobs claims and pushing
to bypass environmental
review altogether.
The proposed 2,000
mile-long Keystone XL
pipeline poses an enor-
mous threat to wildlife,
clean water and our
nation's clean energy
future; and it's critical that
it receives proper review
and public scrutiny.
Last year's BP oil spill
disaster and devastating
pipeline spills in Michi-
gan and the Yellowstone
River should have been
enough of a wake-up call
to know Keystone XL is a
bad idea.
Congress shouldn't be
putting the greed of pol-
luters ahead of economic
recovery in communi-
ties across America, and
instead should be work-
ing on bipartisan solu-
tions to end our depen-
dence on dirty oil.
L. Scherbak
Venice

Go the right way
Editor:
Bicycles on the road
go the same way as cars
and people walk on the
left side and into traffic.
Why do people insist on
walking on the right side
so they can't see what's
coming at them?
I tell them they're walk-
ing on the wrong side.
Walkers should walk on
the left side so they can
see oncoming bicycles.
L.F. James
Nokomis


New rules required
that neighbors be noti-
fied before significant
changes to zoning and
related matters, changing
a pattern of no notice and
involvement.
Two new task forces
were created for the first
time, one on economic
development and the
other on environmental
matters, both critical to
the city's future. Both have
been made into standing
committees.
Parks and recreation.
Council participated in
the design and develop-
ment of Maxine Barritt
Park, one of the most
beautiful beach parks in
the State and already a
great favorite for walk-
ers, picnicker, weddings,
celebrations, etc. Council
mediated between com-
peting interests and found
a happy solution for the
city emphasizing trees,
planting and decorative
improvements.
Council dedicated
funding for Venice Myakka
River Park, developing
a very attractive, native
Florida Park on the
Myakka. The land had
been idle for a number of
years although approved
for a park. Council also
played an active role in
saving the park and its live
oaks from excess destruc-
tion when the Peace River
Authority put a pipeline
through.
Council also helped the
neighbors in the Venetian
Golf and River Club with


vegetative buffering for
beauty and privacy along
the road and overcame
resistance to its being
paved by the PRA.
Council purchased 10
acres of land behind the
historic train station for a
future Legacy Park. Staff
arranged for a grant of
half the purchase price
from the state and council
approved funding the rest.
It will be a major addition
to Venice to have such a
centrally located park near
the Legacy and Venetian
Waterway Trails. Other
smaller parks were also
approved and developed.
Culture and educa-
tion. Council approved
the funding of the new
Performing Arts Center
at the High School, a $7.5
million investment in the
future of the arts in Venice
and for the students. The
original plans showed a
rather plain, contempo-
rary building. Working
with the School Board and
its architects the building
design was modified to fit
with the Venetian Mediter-
ranean architecture theme
throughout the city.
Economic develop-
ment and civic welfare.
Council members spent
three years writing a new
comprehensive plan that
protected the city from
unwelcome intrusion of
taller buildings in the near
downtown. A plan call-
ing for six- to nine-story
buildings around the city
had already been submit-
ted to the state by the


former council.
The new plan provides
growth opportunities for
increased commercial and
industrial development,
as well as possibilities for
thousands of new units of
housing. New parks, green
spaces are also provided.
Most significantly a new
provision calls for the city
to assess the compatibil-
ity between neighboring
uses. In the past, industrial
development and residen-
tial development were not
sufficiently separated.
An airport develop-
ment plan was developed
during a previous council.
It would result in having
26 homes in a Runway
Protection Zone, where
Federal Aviation Admin-
istration rules call for no
buildings. The FAA agreed
to waive their rule, but
the official placement in
such a zone was expected
to lower property values.
A prolonged negotiation
led to the FAA reversing
its earlier position and
helping plan a solution,
which will protect 24 of
those homes. The remain-
ing two homeowners
will have a choice about
remaining if they wish.
Similarly, the airport
redesign called for major
changes to the Lake
Venice Golf course. The
FAA is expected to pay
a share of any changes
required. This negotiation
received considerable bad
publicity at the time, but
resulted in protection of
Venice homemakers and


public course golfers and
was resolved favorably for
the city.
Four hotels were
approved by council, aim-
ing to stimulate tourism
and economic develop-
ment. The recession pre-
vented them from being
constructed to date.
Both PGT and Tervis
Tumblers, the largest
industries in the city,
announced plans to
expand during the period.
Bottom Line: The legal
expenses to the city for
defending unproven alle-
gations of Sunshine Law
violations were extremely
unfortunate, but council
followed the city attorney's
advice. Unfortunately the
case went too long before
it was settled. No coun-
cil member or Airport
Advisory Board member
was found responsible
for infractions of the law,
but all regret the mess


that occurred and the
loss of taxpayer dollars. In
one sentence of justifica-
tion, the plaintiffs never
charged, despite all the
noise, that any city deci-
sion was improperly made
and they asked for no
actions to be rescinded.
Money was the object of
this suit. Unfortunately it
was successful. That event
should not block out the
many good things that
happened in the city dur-
ing the 2007-2010 period.
Council Members, John
Moore, Kit McKeon, Jim
Bennett, Ernie Zavodnyik
and Sue Lang were the
primary actors in these
positive accomplish-
ments. I was fortunate to
serve with them.

2011: A year to remember


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

What a year 2011 was for Venice
sports.
The school collected district titles in
girls tennis, girls soccer from the last
sports season, while this season girls
golf grabbed a district title and the vol-
leyball team captured its 10th straight
district crown.
Here is a list of some of the top sports
stories in the area (in no particular
order):


The Venice High girls tennis team,
posing with their district champion
captured state titles at No. 1 and 3
take runner-up in the Class 3A FHS
Finals.


Venice girls tennis place
second at state
In April, the Venice High girls tennis
team captured the runner-up trophy
in the Class 2A state tournament. The
Lady Indians, who were making their
first state appearance since 1986,
finished with 11 points, which was six
points behind state champion Tallahas-
see Leon. It was Venice's highest-ever
finish at states. Sophomore Victoria
Traynor won a state title at No. 1 singles
and Karen Zafiros took home the title
at No. 3 singles. A day later, Traynor
became the school's first-ever girls ten-
nis champion with a straight-set victory.
Traynor, who attends Pine View School
in Osprey, ended the season with a 12-1
record with her only loss in the district
tournament as she was forced to retire
because of illness. In state, freshman
Michaela Mignemi and sophomore
Taylor Jais paired up to place second in
state at No. 2 doubles. Also helping the
Lady Indians this season were Emme
Zastempowski, Ashley Keith, Ansley
Rice and Emma Carey. In the regionals,
Venice posted a 5-0 win over George
Jenkins and 5-2 victory over Lakeland


to advance to states for the first time in
coach Barb Ginn's 19 years.

VHS girls soccer wins
another district title
The Venice High girls soccer team
captured its third straight district title
with a 2-0 win over Naples Gulf Coast
thanks to Tori Bolyard's two goals in
late January. The Lady Indians ended
the season with an 11-6-4 record as
they were upset at home in the regional
quarterfinals to Tampa Gaither. Bolyard
and Dana LaRocque led Venice with 12
goals each during the season.


wrestler ended the year with a 29-6
record. He was a big reason why the
Indians finished the regular season with
a 20-2 dual record. In February, Fanti
captured the Class 2A-Region 3 title in
the 285-pound weight class and was the
Indians' only state qualifier. In the Class
2A state tournament, Fanti went 1-2.


The Venice High volleyball team shows off its
Class 7A-District 11 championship trophy after
capturing the title with a five-set victory over
Charlotte. It was the 10th straight district title
for the Lady Indians.

who are Class 2A-District 13 trophy after capturing the
nship trophy, title earlier this year at Bradenton Country
singles to Club. The Lady Indians won the championship
AA Tennic for their first district title since 2007.


Venice girls golf wins district
In October, the Venice High girls golf
team captured the Class 2A-District
13 title by 29 shots over second-place
Riverview. It was the Lady Indians' first
district title since 2007. Pacing the team,
which didn't have any seniors, were
Lexie Flerlage, Seneca Symonds, Grace
Gildner, Maddie Chavez and Alicia
Simpson. In regional, Venice just missed
qualifying for states with a third-place
finish. During the season, the girls, who
went 14-0, also placed second in the
Donald Ross Memorial Invitational.

Venice boys soccer
wins first round of districts
In January, the Venice High boys soc-
cer team defeated Port Charlotte, 2-0, in
the Class 5A-District 10 quarterfinals on
goals by Joey Carlin and Matias Lam-
brecht. It was Indians' first win in the
district tournament since Feb. 4, 2004.

Fanti qualifies for
states in wrestling
Venice senior Dino Fanti, a standout
football player, turned heads on the
wrestling mat as the first-year varsity


Venice claimed its 10th straight
district title with a five-set victory over
Charlotte. The Lady Indians, who only
had two seniors, also defeated the Lady
Tarpons in five sets during the regular
season. Venice (21-9) advanced to the
regional semifinal against Stuart Martin
County where the Lady Indians lost in
three sets. Martin County ended up
winning the Class 7A state title.

VHS football scores
upset in postseason
In November, the Venice High football
team, which took district runner-up
for the second straight year to even-
tual state champion Manatee, went
on the road to defeat unbeaten Clear-
water Countryside, 28-27, with a tying
touchdown and go-ahead extra point
with 3:11 remaining. It was the second
straight season which the Indians have
scored a win over a previously unbeaten
team in the regional quarterfinal. In
September, the Indians (9-2) also scored
a dramatic 21-20 win over Charlotte on
a touchdown with 5.4 seconds left.

Girls weightlifting captures
sixth straight county title
In January, the Venice High girls
weightlifting team captured its sixth
straight Sarasota County championship
by 31 points over second-place Saraso-
ta. In February, three lifters participated
in the FHSAA State Weightlifting Finals.


Freshman Shana Sandborn placed 18th
in the 110-pound weight class while
Lexie Barbee was 18th in the 101-pound
class. Senior Amanda Deto was 20th in
the 199-pound weight class.

VHS baseball team wins
Sarasota Baseball Classic
In March, the Venice High baseball
team captured the Elite Division of
Sarasota Baseball Classic with a 5-3 win
over Naples Barron Collier. Sophomore
Tyson Albert allowed just five hits and
three unearned runs in 4 2/3 innings. It
was Venice's first Classic title since 1998
and just the third time in the title game.
Venice also notched wins over Palm
Beach Central (8-3), Pendleton (13-7)
and Sarasota (14-4 in five innings). In
the semifinal against Sarasota, Michael
Knott got the win as Venice pounded
18 hits and scored nine runs in the first
inning.

Venice says goodbye
The year was witness to some heart-
break as the Venice community said
goodbye to longtime resident and
Venice's No. 1 fan in Jack Dundas, who
passed away in October. Dundas, 95,
was a fixture around Venice High ath-
letic programs, especially football and
baseball, for more than four decades. In
December, the Indians' football team
lost one of its standouts from the Class
5A state championship team of 2000
when running back Ardell Daniels died
in a car accident.

Tritschler retires from
Venice Little League
At the end of the Venice Little League
season, Venice's Terry Tritschler called it
quits after coaching for the last 33 years.
Tritschler wants to spend more time
with his three grandchildren. While
coaching in the Majors, Tritschler's
team only had two losing seasons. He
won three Minors City Cup champion-
ships, two Majors City Cup titles, in
1997 and 1998, and one County Cup
title in 1998.

Ginn retires after 19 years
as girls tennis coach
Venice's Barb Ginn retired from Venice
High at the end of the school year. She
has taught 34 years total including the
last 19 at Venice High. The Lady Indians
sent her out on a winning note as they
placed second in the state tournament.

Wednesday at Southeast
High in Bradenton.
Venice (7-9) now has a
string of eight consecu-
tive quarters of holding
opponents to single-digit
scoring.
On Tuesday, Venice de-
feated Charlotte, 46-23.
"Kind of glad to get out
of here with two wins,"
said Venice coach John
Flynn. "We were playing
good team after good
team. We needed a couple
of games our way. Nice to
get to seven wins now."
On Monday, Venice
dropped its tournament
opener, 53-41.
Venice, who went 2-1
in the tournament, went
up 3-0 before the Lady
Vikings (6-10) scored
with 6:15 left in the first
quarter.
It would be the last
points of the quarter for
Northeast.
Venice ran off nine
straight points including
seven from senior Laura
Hackett, who led Venice
with 14 points in limited
action.
Hackett was named to
the All-Tournament team
and received a trophy.
"We played pretty good
defense," said Flynn. "We
are switching defenses on
the fly."


Venice's defense limited
the Lady Vikings to just
two field goals in the
second quarter while
the Lady Indians scored
eight points to grab a 21-6
halftime cushion.
The score could have
been worse but Venice
missed 10 foul shots.
Flynn emptied his
bench, which played the
majority of the second
half.
In the third quarter,
Northeast scored a point
on a foul shot with 6:36
on the clock.
It was the Lady Vikings'
only point of the quarter
as Venice tallied 10 con-
secutive points for a 32-7
lead after three quarters.
"Second-string players
got a lot of work," said
Flynn. "Wanted to get ev-
erybody a lot of minutes
today."
Venice also got to rest
some of its key players
as the Lady Indians have
three straight district
games coming up.
"Getting Laura (Hack-
ett), Hannah (Revels),
Brooke (Shipps) and
Maggie (Flynn) off the
floor is good," said Flynn.
"Keeping their minutes
down today."

29-year-old takes helm of North Port ER


By ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER

Since he took over the
position a few months
ago, Freddy Koenig has
had time to settle into his
new role as manager of
outpatient services of the
Sarasota Memorial Hos-
pital ER in North Port.
Koenig, 29, comes to
North Port from San
Antonio, Texas, where he
served on the adminis-
trative team at Nix Health
Care System, a hospital
and health-care system
with several facilities
throughout the region.
He earned his bachelor's
degree from Texas A&M
and master's in health-
care administration from
Trinity University in San
Antonio. Koenig's wife is
in her third year of medi-
cal school, and they have


a 1-year-old son.
He has taken over
duties that were handled
by David Carter, former
administrator of the
freestanding emergency
room on Toledo Blade
Boulevard, who resigned
his post effective Aug. 12
to accept a position with
the Society of Chest Pain
Centers in Ohio.
Koenig is responsible
for the day-to-day opera-
tions in the lab, radiol-
ogy, physical therapy and
environmental services.
He also will work with
local organizations and
physicians in South
County to grow existing
services and identify new
opportunities for North
Port.
"The facility is great,"
Koenig said. "I know
that the town had been
asking for a hospital for


some time now, and
there were some issues
with the certificate of
need and the economic
downturn. But as far as
accessibility, we're doing
a great job offering emer-
gency care."
He said Carter left
the facility in good
shape, and while there
are bound to be some
changes with a lead-
ership transition, he
commended ER staff
for maintaining such
good service in the gap
between when Carter left
and he took over.
"The staff have done
a fantastic job," Koenig
said.
He added he also will
be working to "branch
out" and bring in new
specialists in addition to
the urologist who cur-
rently comes in once a


Springs: A 'cultural jewel'


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

Second of two parts
In March, for the first
time in 20 years, scientific
researchers explored the
depths of the sinkhole at
Warm Mineral Springs.
The team of divers com-
pared what they saw with
records of previous dives
to make sure the recorded
archaeological finds had
not been damaged under
previous private owner-
ship and to establish
baseline data from which
future divers would work.
One of the people most
interested in the findings
was Jodi Pracht, Sarasota
County archaeologist,
who was placed in charge
of archaeological and
historical aspects of the
1.4-acre spring, in which
12,000-year-old human
remains were found
in the late 1950s by an
underwater explorer, Lt.
Col. William Royal.
"When the city of North
Port and Sarasota County
acquired Warm Mineral
Springs, it was very natu-
ral for us to reach out to
the University of Miami
and, by proxy, the Florida
Aquarium, to get some
help," Pracht said.
Researchers found that
the divers 20 years ago
- led by Florida State
University archaeologist
Sonny Cockrell tarped
over the excavation units
they created above arti-
facts they found and left
rapidly. Pracht, who dives
but is not an underwater
archaeologist, did not join
Steve Koski of Miami and
the others on the dive.
But she found the results
reassuring.
"We really viewed it as
due diligence," Pracht
said. "It seemed like the
reasonable thing to do
was to get divers in there;
to ... take a look and see
what was still intact" of
what she calls a "cultural
jewel."
Divers circumnavigated
the spring at two levels
and, Pracht said, "happily
reported that everything
looks like it was left" by
Cockrell's team 20 years
ago.
Pracht said there still
may be archaeological
and historical discoveries
to be made about what
lies beneath the surface of
where tens of thousands
of people bathe in the
87-degree, mineral-rich
water every year.
"That's the $50 million
question," Pracht said of
the possibility that more
artifacts or bodies lie
beneath sediment on a
ledge near where artifacts
were found, or elsewhere
in the sinkhole. "There is
the possibility for finds
there."
Were these Paleo-Indi-
ans, the first universally
recognized occupants of
North America, perform-
ing meaningful activity or


had they merely fallen in?
Those are good research
questions, Pracht said.
Some 12,000 years ago,
she postulated, when sea
levels were lower, people
likely were scaling down
into the sinkhole to go to
the water or the shelf, to
go into a cavern and bury
their dead. Or perhaps to
hunt tortoises. Or maybe
to misplace some tools
that archaeologists would
find thousands of years
later.
"They were conducting


activities back in these
crevice-like areas," Pracht
said. "They were com-
ing down the face of the
wall, and they were going
back into this ledge, and
they were performing
activities."
Right now, Pracht is
working on a manage-
ment plan that will iden-
tify research questions.
Then the spring may be
made available for future
research to help identify
what those activities were.

week, and an orthopedic
specialist.
"It works out great,
since we do have radiol-
ogy and a pulmonolo-
gist over here as well,"
Koenig said. "But we do
have some space on the
second floor."
Koenig also is settling
into the community. He
joked that he's even low-
ering the average age.
"The people are
nice, and the weather
has been surprisingly


warmer than it was (in
Texas)," he said. "I sit on
the chamber of com-
merce board, so I've been
able to interact a lot with
the local leaders. And
it's definitely a younger
town it's refreshing to
see. I guess I fall a little
shorter than the average
age. And the community
seems very tight-knit,
but it's not too small of
a community. Residents
seem to bond together
really well, which is good


to see when you're trying
to grow the city."
In addition to the
emergency care center,
the facility, which opened
in 2009, provides outpa-
tient services for labora-
tory, radiology, physical
therapy, pulmonary
rehabilitation and home
health care. According to
SMH, more than 20,000
patients visited the North
Port ER last year.

People make the difference in Our Town


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Again in 2011, Venice and
Venetians racked up accom-
plishments that put the area
on the map for its people as
well as its place.
A fashion shoot at Caspersen
Beach put Venice on the pages
of an Italian magazine and
brought an international roster
of photographers, fashion styl-
ists, hairdressers and models
to the city and the front page
of Our Town during the sum-
mer. They came for the beach
and for the professional way
they were treated by Venetians.
In mid-May, three Venice art-
ists hit the beaches of Apala-
chicola, St. George Island and
Eastpoint in Franklin County.
Mary Erickson, Hodges Soileau
and Bill Farnsworth were
featured at that area's Plein Air
Invitational. They were invited
for their national reputations
as painters.
Pine View School senior
Christopher Roland rep-
resented Florida in July at
Boys Nation in Washington,
D.C. He was honored by
Sarasota County Commis-
sioners in September for his
accomplishment.
Margi Miller earned a trip to
Washington for her volunteer
efforts for Tidewell Hospice
where she provides bedside
harp music, brings her trained
therapy dog to visit patients
and mentors other volunteers.
MetLife hosted as select group
of volunteers from across the
United States.
From May 1 to Oct. 31 a
cadre of volunteers walked
beaches in Venice and Engle-
wood for Mote Marine Labora-
tory and the Coastal Wildlife
Club. They keep track of the
sea turtles that nest along the
beaches and the hatchlings
that crawl out of the nests and
into the Gulf of Mexico some
50 days later. Their efforts
seem to be paying off for the
endangered creatures.
In January, our town cel-
ebrated the success of former
city archivist Dorothy Korwek
in having the John Nolen plan
for the city of Venice named
to the National Register of
Historic Places. By November,
Korwek was signing copies of
a limited edition book, "John
Nolen Plan of Venice, Florida,"
which describes the process.
Hard bound and with plenty
of color illustrations, the book
is available for sale at the Tri-
angle Inn, home of the Venice
Archives and Area Historical
Collection, for $65.
Epiphany Cathedral School
student Michaela McNutt,
11, followed up on last year's
appearance on the Oprah
Winfrey show by founding the
Cool2BFit Foundation at the
Gulf Coast Community Foun-
dation to raise money to help
"cool kids make fit choices." By
making "fit" choices she and
her mother lost many pounds
and are setting examples for
others.
Award-winning writer Alex
Kotlewirz came to Venice
High School for its annual
literary festival in February. A
few months later, Steve Albee
announced the formation of
the The Venice Arts & Literary
Society to organize an annual
International Book Fair. The

society's first event was the
subject of an Our Town story
earlier this month when
former U.S. Sen. Bob Gra-
ham spoke at the Venice Golf
& River Club about his new
book, "Keys to the Kingdom."
Continuing education is big in
Venice.
Internationally known
circus star and longtime
Venice resident Tito Gaona,
striving to save the old circus
arena for a new life as a civic
center/ entertainment venue,
was in Our Town more than
once. Working with volunteer
members of the Circus Arts
Foundation and Chef Rolf
Zahnd of the Saltwater Cafe in
Nokomis, he organized a gala
fundraising dinner in February.
He brought several interna-
tional circus stars to Venice to
perform in a series of shows
in Gaona's giant blue-and-red
tent in the parking lot of the
old Kmart store in Venice. If
these people manage to save
the 4,500-seat arena, Venice
would become the home of
the largest entertainment and
trade-show venue in Sara-
sota, Charlotte and Manatee
counties. Cost estimates of
$10 million to $12 million are
less than the $15 million cost
to add a few seats to the 1,720-
seat Van Wezel Performing Arts
Hall a few years ago. Anyone
interested in helping can call
941-485-7675 or visit www.
venicecircusarts.com.
Other newsworthy historic
preservation projects that made
the pages of Our Town included
stories about the fundrais-
ing efforts for the Lord-Higel


House. Also in the news was the
Triangle Inn, home of the Ven-
ice Archives and Area Historical
Collection. City archivist James
Hagler was one of the first to
sign up with Gulf Coast Gives,
a new initiative of the Gulf
Coast Community Founda-
tion. Using the Gulf Coast Gives
website that was the subject of
an Our Town front-page story,
the archives was able to raise
enough money in donations to
repair and renovate in Heritage
Park. It is in the second of three
fundraising drives that ulti-
mately will fix up all the histori-
cal markers in need of repair.
With a $1 million grant in
hand from longtime resident
and volunteer Julia Cousins
Laning, the archives is work-
ing toward funding a new city
history museum adjacent to
the inn.
Meanwhile, the Gulf Coast
Gives initiative has funded
projects for Venice Theatre,
Big Brothers Big Sisters of
the Suncoast, Our Mother's
House and Girls Incorporated
among other nonprofits in
the area. To learn more about
Gulf Coast Gives, visit www.
gulfcoastgives.org.
And, for the 22nd time, Ros-
coe Turner of Venice returned
to Thailand to help the people
of that country build schools
and hospitals and to learn
English. This year, he was
accompanied by some other
Venetians and carried with
him letters from fourth- and
fifth-grade students at Taylor
Ranch Elementary School.
In each of these efforts, a
small group of people are

Venice Middle School
was the subject of an Our
Town front page as the first
public middle school in the
United States to offer the
Young Marines program to its
students.
Special Olympians from
the Venice area earned med-
als in weightlifting, and the
Salvation Army of Venice
gained new leaders and also
reopened its Venice thrift store.
The latter was thanks to the
herculean efforts of longtime
board member and volunteer
Mike Levine. He gave up his
spot on the advisory board
to spearhead efforts for the
store, doing anything needed,
including driving the truck for
donations.
Venice Theatre celebrated its
60th anniversary as a commu-
nity theater and the 10th anni-
versary of its Theatre Appren-
tice program. The third-largest
community theater in the
United States, Venice Theatre
is number one in the country
on a per capital basis. Its 1,500
volunteers, 28-plus employees
and $2.5 million budget con-
tribute to its successes quite
a coup for our town of just
19,000 residents.
Bob Byler shared his joy

tians enjoyed several new jazz

like jazz. They especially like

composer, internationally
known jazz expert and pianist
Dick Hyman, who gives gener-
ously of his time and talent to
our town.
All these people and more
make Our Town unique.

Foundation grants target social service delivery


From GREG LUBERECKI
GULF COAST
COMMUNITY FOUNDATION

Loveland Center, Big Broth-
ers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast,
and St. Francis Animal Rescue
are among the Venice-based
organizations to receive grants
from Gulf Coast Commu-
nity Foundation in its most
recent grant cycle. In all, the
Gulf Coast Board of Directors
approved 10 grants total-
ing $374,521 at its December
meeting.
Several of the grants aim
to strengthen social-service
delivery in the region, a critical
priority identified by the Gulf
Coast Board for the founda-
tion's grantmaking this year.
In the past three years, Gulf
Coast has granted more than
$11 million to meet the com-
munity's most pressing health
and human service needs.
Loveland Center will use
a $43,750 grant from The
Venice Endowment Fund to
hire a marketing specialist.
The new position will aim to
increase community aware-
ness and outreach through
new and advanced efforts and
boost earned revenue while
helping to reduce operating
costs. Loveland Center pro-
vides a range of services for


adults with developmental
disabilities.
"Loveland Center has been
blessed by the continued
generosity of this community
and those who know of the
great strides being made by
our students," said Carl Penxa
Jr., president/CEO of Love-
land Center. "Yet, there are
many who live and work in the
greater Venice area and around
southwest Florida who do not
know Loveland Center. With
the help of this grant from Gulf
Coast Community Foundation,
we look forward to more and
more people getting caught up
in the passion of our mission."
Big Brothers Big Sisters of
the Sun Coast was awarded a
$78,000 grant from The Venice
Endowment Fund to expand
its Decisions to Win program
in Venice and surrounding
communities. Decisions to Win
is a one-on-one mentoring
program that targets students
who are at risk of dropping out
of high school. The grant will
enable the agency to pilot a
new program at Venice Middle
School called Gateway to
Success, which will focus on
helping at-risk eighth-graders
who are expected to enroll
in Decisions to Win when
they transition to Venice High
School. The grant also will


allow BBBSSC to expand Deci-
sions to Win to its new service
area in Port Charlotte.
Jewish Family and Children's
Service of Sarasota-Manatee
received a $79,571 grant from
The Venice Endowment Fund
to keep a grant writer on its
staff. The position, which has
been funded by a Gulf Coast
grant for the past two years,
helped the agency secure more
than $5.7 million in funding
for essential safety-net services
it provides in the region. "The
return on our previous grant
was about $40 brought in for
services to the community for
every $1 Gulf Coast invested,"
noted Hansen. "That is exactly
the kind of impact our Board is
looking to support."
In the arts, a $15,000 grant
from the Venice Endowment
Fund will enable Coexis-
tence, Inc. to expand its free
transportation from southern
Sarasota County schools to the
annual Embracing Our Dif-
ferences outdoor art exhibit.
Students will also have the
opportunity to visit other arts
organizations in Sarasota dur-
ing the trips.
Other grants approved
by the Gulf Coast Board in
December:
Denise Amber Lee Founda-
tion $25,000 grant from


the AnnaV. Pfister, Nellie Mae
Koss, and Helen K. Hadden
Memorial Endowment Fund
to help with start-up costs for
the organization's transition
to a full operating foundation
dedicated to highlighting and
improving inadequacies in the
emergency 911 system.
Legal Aid of Manasota -
$30,000 grant from The Venice
Endowment Fund to help it
add a marketing and devel-
opment staff member. This
capping grant will be paid
when the agency raises the
additional $29,100 it needs for
the project.
St. Francis Animal Rescue of
Venice $35,000 grant from
The Venice Endowment Fund
to hire a business director to
increase operating revenue for
its shelter and thrift store.
Southeastern Guide Dogs -
$25,500 grant from the Andrew
and Audrey Belomyzy Chari-
table Trust Fund to help the
organization build a database
and server application plat-
form to support its operations.
Suncoast Humane Soci-
ety $17,700 grant from the
Andrew and Audrey Belomyzy
Charitable Trust Fund to pur-
chase a customer relationship
management (CRM) system to
better manage donor data and
relationships and to cultivate


new donors.
Volunteer Community Con-
nections $25,000 from The
Venice Endowment Fund to
promote volunteer oppor-
tunities and train volunteer
coordinators at nonprofits
throughout Sarasota County.
This nonprofit organization,
which is housed within the
Glasser-Schoenbaum Human
Services Center, will serve as
the human contact point for a
new online volunteer-match-
ing portal that Gulf Coast
Community Foundation will
launch early next year.

About Gulf Coast
Together with our donors,
Gulf Coast Community Foun-
dation transforms our region
through bold and proactive
philanthropy. Gulf Coast is a
public charity that was created
in 1995 through the sale of the
Venice Hospital. Since then, we
have welcomed more than 500
charitable funds created by
generous donors, and we have
invested more than $128 mil-
lion in grants in the areas of
arts and culture, health and
human services, education,
civic and economic develop-
ment, and the environment.

Books donated to Center of Hope


FROM SUNCOAST
LITERACY CAMPAIGN

The Suncoast Literacy
Campaign, a division
of Us, Books and Kids,
founded by Patrick and
Joyce Keigher, of Ven-
ice, presented $600 in
brand new high-quality
children's books to the
Center of Hope after a
fun-filled Story Time
presentation Dec. 17.
Sheila Kaufer, librar-
ian at Frances T. Bourne
Jacaranda Library, was
present.
John Hazelton and
Noah Fowler, Venice
Middle School students,
read stories to the chil-
dren, sang songs and
created crafts around a
red and green theme.
The Center of Hope
is an outreach ministry
serving the needs of
those in our community
struggling to provide
food, clothing, housing
and other basic needs
for themselves and their
families.
The books were the
result of fundraising
efforts by the Suncoast
Literacy Campaign and
a 50 percent matching
grant offered by Usborne
Publishing.
"We want to thank our
generous Venice com-
munity for their con-
tributions," said Joyce
Keigher.
"Reading is a power-
ful and essential tool to

The Suncoast Literacy
Campaign is directed
by Joyce and Patrick
Keigher of Us, Books and

Moon pies over Mobile


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
While the giant crystal
ball drops on New York
City tonight, residents
of Mobile, Ala., will
watch a giant moon pie
drop from the top of the
34-story RSA BankTrust
"skyrise."
VIP viewing will be
from the fourth floor of
the Renaissance River-
view Plaza, just across
the street from the bank
building from which
the 12-foot-round,
350-pound moon pie
will drop at one minute
before midnight. It takes
60 seconds for the 317-
foot drop.
Nearby and also
on Royal Street is the
Renaissance Battle
House Hotel, which has
a second floor balcony
that would be perfect
for parade viewing. So
would most of the rooms
on the Royal Street side
of the hotel, which was
totally renovated and
restored recently. The
larger rooms are in the
hotel's oldest area and
average about 535 square
feet. Rooms in the newer
tower are about 100
square feet smaller but
still ample by today's
standards. As SUVs get
bigger, it seems that
some hotel rooms get
smaller.
A new VIP area on
the fourth floor of the
Renaissance Riverview
Plaza will enable spon-
sors to get a bird's-eye
view of the entertain-
ment and the falling
cookie. The 12-foot-tall
electronic moon pie
will descend from the


34-story RSA Bank-
Trust skyrise as the city
welcomes 2012 and the
beginning of Mardi Gras
season.
When making reserva-
tions for one year from
tonight, ask for a room
with a view of the parade
if staying at the Battle
House, which is the more
elegant of the two, or, if
new is your thing, see if
you can get a room at the
Riverview Plaza Renais-
sance with a view of the
ball drop. Consider that
those rooms are likely to
be gone before the end
of January, so popular is
this event with residents
as well as with MoonPie
fans.
Tonight, Three Dog
Night will headline the
free downtown celebra-
tion, leading up to the
midnight drop.
There also will be a
parade similar to the
ones that will take place
in the coming weeks as
the first city in American
to celebrate Mardi Gras
moves into Mardi Gras
mode. Toomey's Mardi
Gras warehouse is in
overflow mode this week
but soon will be nearly
empty as parade partici-
pants buy literally cases
of mini MoonPies, beads,
stuffed animals and
other items to be tossed
from floats during the
many parades. Toomey's
orders thousands of
cases of mini Moon-
Pies for such occasions
because they are safer
to throw than boxes of
Cracker Jack with their
sharp corners. I was told
that tale on my first visit
to the famous wholesaler
of Mardi Gras and other


festival swag. MoonPies
actually are a product of
Chattanooga, but I would
guess more are sold in
Mobile during Mardi
Gras season because of
all the parades. I still can
visualize cases of Moon-
Pies in what seemed
to be at least a dozen
flavors, near the check-
out counter. Toomey's
is worth a visit as much
as the city's Mardi Gras
Museum.
Mardi Gras is a whole
other reason to visit
Mobile which is cred-
ited with having the first
celebration in the county
back in 1703. The first
masked parade society
was formed in 1830 and
today there are more
than 50 organizations
involved in Mardi Gras
and Toomey's business
expands every year with
the festivities.
But tonight it is all
about the Moon Pie Drop.
There is a new stage
on the corner of Gov-
ernment Boulevard and
Royal Street and better
visibility for viewers plus
more protection from
the elements should the
weather not cooperate.
The parade begins at
7:30 p.m. followed by
an evening of entertain-
ment leading up to a
light show at 11:30 p.m.
and finally, the drop and
synchronized fireworks
at midnight.
While it may be cosier
to watch the parade from
a hotel room, to be in the
thick of the action, one
needs to be on the street.
You might end up with
pockets full of MoonPies.
According to a press
release, more than 40,000

FINE WHINES


Be it resolved


By BOB MUDGE
EDITOR

Since it's no longer the
season to be jolly, I can
only conclude that 'tis
now the season to make
New Year's resolutions.
And I am in the mood to
resolve.
I love this time of year
only a little less than
Christmas itself. Looking
for flaws and shortcom-
ings is always a worth-
while endeavour in the
quest to end each year as
a better person than the
one who started it, and
there are a lot of people
who need my help to do
it.
Yes, I said other people.
Being perfect myself,
right down to my awe-
some humility, it's only
appropriate that I use my
vast intellect and keen
knowledge of human
nature to assist my fel-
low men and women
to be the best they can
be. And I do so without
expectation of reward
(though the occasional
$100 handshake is always
appreciated).
Space limitations
preclude me from offer-
ing suggestions to all
the people who need
them. If you feel you've
been omitted, please feel
free to call to make an
appointment for a per-
sonal consultation. My
usual rates apply.
Let's get started.

SUN NEWSPAPERS 7B


A spell of days


Happy New Year. Or,
as some say, happy New
Year's or even happy new
year. Which one is cor-
rect? They all are. New
Year's is one holiday that's
hard to get wrong.
But as the months go
by, other holidays roll
around that aren't so easy
to write holidays that
follow rules contradictory
to each other and per-
haps even to logic itself.
So here, to start your New
Year right, is the lowdown
on how to write a whole
year's worth of holidays.
New Year's Eve and
New Year's Day always
start with capital let-
ters and always take an
apostrophe. When you're
wishing someone "Happy
New Year," most sources
say that New Year should
be capitalized, too. But
dictionaries give conflict-
ing advice on whether
to capitalize the singular
New Year. "Webster's New
World College Diction-
ary" lowercases it. So
technically, you could
write "Happy new year."
But "Merriam-Webster's"
and "American Heritage"
dictionaries both capital-
ize it: New Year.
If you're talking in
generic terms, you're can
use the plain-old noun
"year" and modify it with
the plain-old adjective
"new" to get lower-
case "new year." This is


8-11 a.m. Monday
through Saturday. You
can leave a message at


especially common with
"the": "We will see many
changes in the new year."
The third Monday in
January is Martin Luther
King Jr. Day, which the
"Associated Press Style-
book" and the "Chicago
Manual of Style" list
without a "Rev." without
a "Dr." and without any
commas setting off "Jr."
Valentine's Day always
has an apostrophe and
is always capitalized.
Look this name up in
"Webster's New World"
and you'll see the defini-
tion is "Saint Valentine's
Day," but look it up in
"Merriam-Webster's" and
you'll see "St. Valentine's
Day." You can use any
of these to refer to the
holiday on which you
give a valentine to your
valentine. That's because
the noun forms that
mean your sweetheart or
a greeting card are both
lowercase.
If only Presidents
Day were as easy. The
dictionaries say this
holiday, celebrated the
third Monday in Febru-
ary, is plural possessive:
Presidents' Day. But AP
says it's the apostrophe-
less Presidents Day, in
which the first word is
functioning as an adjec-
tive and therefore is not
possessive. Interestingly,
Presidents Day isn't a
federal holiday. Though
certain departments of
the federal government,
as well as some state and
local governments, call
it Presidents' Day, the
official name is actually
Washington's Birthday -
even though it's meant
to celebrate Lincoln's
Birthday and to honor all
other presidents as well.
St. Patrick's Day never
refers to more than one


any time. Call 941-488-
1889, or go to www.
VeniceAreaMobileMeals.


Patrick, so it's always
singular possessive.
Mother's Day and Father's
Day are singular pos-
sessive, according to the
major dictionaries and
style guides. April Fools'
Day is the unanimous
choice of my dictionar-
ies and AP though the
Chicago manual refers
only to All Fools' Day. And
the Fourth of July can be
written like this or as the
4th of July or even July
Fourth.
Memorial Day is obvi-
ous, but Veterans Day isn't.
The style guides and dic-
tionaries I checked agree
that this Nov. 11 celebra-
tion once called Armistice
Day takes no apostrophe.
Usage guides, however,
note that Veterans' Day is
also a popular choice. Hal-
loween, Thanksgiving and
Christmas are easy. And
anytime you add "Day" or
"Eve" you should capital-
ize it.
Xmas contains no
hyphen. And despite the
folks who say the X takes
the Christ out of Christ-
mas, it actually represents
the Greek letter "chi" -
the first letter in Jesus'
name. "X has ancient
antecedents as the
symbol of Christ and the
cross," "Garner's Modern
American Usage" reports.
Should you write "a
Xmas gift" or "an Xmas
gift"? It depends on how
you'd pronounce it in
your "mind's ear," accord-
ing to "Garner's." If you'd
say it "eksmas," use "an."
If you'd pronounce it
"Christmas," use "a."

Prospects for

a trouble-free

new year

The year 2012 is ready
and available. The pass-
ing of 2011 nears com-
pletion or is complete
depending upon when
you find this article. Even
as the New Year begins
with faith, promise and
hopefully a good dose
of clear thinking, God's
people remain eternally
optimistic but looking
with clear vision at the
reality around us.
As for me, I am look-
ing for a five-jump mullet
and a happy New Year.
This happy New Year
would be, for example,
365 days without the
stress of a health crisis.
Perhaps you would say
this year-long break of
happiness would be a
year of quiet togetherness
in the family.
A happy New Year
would place sufficient
food and clean water
within reach of all people.
Surely a happy New Year
includes children and
families from war-torn
areas finding relief in the
sounds of silence.
You may be thinking all
this hopefulness is great;
however, it is about as
likely as seeing a five-
jump mullet. I completely
agree.
I have never seen a
five-jump mullet and I
have been watching our
gulf and bay waters for
years. During the time
of my childhood and
adolescence, I frequented
the haunts and waters
of Pinellas County. St.
Petersburg was my
home. Alongside Dad I
fished the Gandy Bridge
cat-walks, the Indian
Rocks pier and John's
Pass Bridge. We fished by
wading around the newly
opened Skyway bridges
and sometimes deep into
Tampa Bay. We carried
our own motor, rented
an aluminum boat by
the half-day, and headed
onto the waters near
Weddon Island.
One sight I never saw
was a five-jump mullet.

"Make a joyful noise."

Happy New Year
At a recent luncheon, Pat
Miller told me a story of two
boys in Connecticut. The best
friends started playing hockey
every- when they were in elementary
a bow. school. One was No. 16 and the
s spirit other was No. 17.
1 brings The boys played through
middle school and started in
high school. As sometimes
happens in life, No. 17 was
injured. At first, the injury
ho made didn't seem serious but soon
right by No. 17 learned his hockey
spenders career was over. The best
nging a friends were devastated.
ng the No. 16 went to the coach and
ouses, said after all these years he
lud- wanted to put his No. 16 jersey
ho on the shelf. He wanted to wear
splay in No. 17 so that he and his best
friend could still skate on the ice


together. The coach agreed.
No. 16 is Pat Miller's grandson.

One of our best
The special person of this
week is Mayor John Holic.
This nice man is a great
ambassador for Venice. He loves
being mayor and attends every
public event in town. He issues
proclamations and reads them
whenever he can. The students
at Venice Elementary School
consider him a rock star.
He lends a hand at fundrais-
ers. When a tough vote comes
up in council, he chooses the
honorable way.
On top of it all, he is a great
husband and father. He man-
ages to run several miles every
day. He is one of those people
who seem to have a few more
hours in his day than the rest of
us do. He is kind and approach-
able, and we are blessed to have
him represent our city.
Mayor John Holic is one of
the men who make Venice a
great place to live.

Two neat pickups and their owners


Before starting this
final article of 2011,
Lee and I wish
everyone who reads
these columns a happy,
healthy and prosper-
ous New Year. If you are
like us it doesn't seem
possible 2012 is upon us
already. Perhaps the old
adage "the older you get,
the faster time goes by"
has a lot of truth to it,
especially to those who
are retired.
Today, two vintage
Chevrolet pickups are
featured. Lightweight
trucks in recent years
have been gaining popu-
larity at a rapid pace and
are showing up at all
kinds of hobby-related
events.
The bright red 1959
step-side Apache is
owned by snowbirds Jim
and Anna Munholand,
natives of Ellsworth,
Ohio, 20 miles west of
Youngstown. For 10
years, they wintered
in the Florida Keys. A
visit to Charlotte County
convinced them to buy a
house on sailboat water,
thus a Punta Gorda
property deal was con-
cluded in 2009.
Anna owns and operates
a 30-acre pick-your-own
berry farm, raising red
raspberries, blackberries
and blueberries. The farm


came about when Jim was
in sales and sales manage-
ment with General Electric
for 35 years, covering
northeast USA, while Anna
was home raising Luke,
Caleb and Laura. Anna
saw an opportunity to do
something productive that
would teach the children
responsibility and charac-
ter when the berry farm
idea became reality. And
on that farm, when their
truck needed replacing,
they found a 1959 Chevy
for sale on the roadside.
The entire family became
involved with fixing it up
over three years.
On Dec. 1, the pickup
came south with them
towing their MacGregor
sailboat, and it gets
driven often. Anna and
Jim are like two kids
when they're out and
about in it, grinning as
they bounce along in
"The '59," as they call it.
By the way, the kids
learned well from work-
ing on the truck and
berry farm. Luke is now

Black beauty
Now for the shiny,
all-black 1958 Chevy
Apache step-side pickup
- whose owner is a well-

resident. Art Webb, 42,

parents at age 10. They
had lived in Dayton,
Ohio, and came south

Shop that messed up should pay up


Dear Tom and Ray:
My "check engine" light
illuminated a few weeks
after a Jiffy Lube oil
change. I took my 2008
Subaru Impreza in to the
dealer, and they pulled a
shop rag out of my car (it
was blocking two-thirds
of the air intake). Upon
request, Jiffy Lube agreed
to pay for the dealer's
services (I am still await-
ing reimbursement).
Several weeks later, both
my air/fuel sensor and
my mass air sensor failed
prematurely. The dealer
agreed that these are
related to the rag, and
helped me draft a letter
to Jiffy Lube requesting
full reimbursement for
$750. Is there anything
else I can or should do,
besides NEVER going to
this Jiffy Lube for an oil
change again? Lily
Tom: Well, unfortu-
nately, these things do
happen, Lily. I've left rags
in some unusual places
myself.
Ray: The most embar-
rassing places are the
ones where his wife ends
up finding them!
Tom: Usually a rag left
in the air-filter housing
won't do any damage.
But I'm guessing that in
your case, it ended up
getting sucked into the
air intake and substan-
tially blocking it. That
caused your engine to
run rich (i.e., too much
fuel, not enough air).
Ray: And that would
instantly cause the sen-
sors to start working to
correct the situation. My
guess is that the sen-
sors got overworked and
overheated, and that's
what caused them to fail,
turning on the check-
engine light.
Tom: So what else
might fail? Well, if the
sensors were unable to
keep up, and the car was
allowed to run rich for an
extended period of time,
the catalytic converters
might be damaged.
Ray: Those can run
into serious money. But


CLICK and CLACK

TALK CARS
by Tom & Ray Magliozzi


Because anyone who owns a car
needs a laugh twice a week.

the good news is that
your catalytic converters
are warranted, by federal
law, for eight years or
80,000 miles. And if you
bought the car in a state
that has adopted Cali-
fornia emissions stan-
dards, your converters
are covered for 15 years
or 150,000 miles! So it's
more likely to be your
dealer's problem than
yours if they fail prema-
turely. I'd let the dealer
decide whether to ad-
dress the converter issue
with Jiffy Lube.
Tom: It might be a hard
sell, anyway. Unless your
dealer takes the convert-
ers down, inspects them
and certifies that the
honeycombs have already
started to melt from
overheating, I think you'll
have a hard time turning
Jiffy Lube upside down
and shaking two new
converters out of them.
Ray: But they certainly
should reimburse you
for the sensors. And
you are well within your
rights never to patronize
that particular Jiffy Lube
again.
Tom: Yeah, my brother
no longer goes to the ear,
nose and throat doctor
who was clearing out his
nose hairs one day and
left a gas-powered weed
whacker hanging out of
each nostril.

How to sell
a car for parts
Dear Tom and Ray:
I have a beloved 1998
Plymouth Voyager


Minivan with only 83,000
miles. It has new tires,
and was recently ser-
viced (new plugs, leaks
plugged, tuneup, etc.,
for about $2,000). Last
month, I had a bizarre
accident and crashed the
rear of the car into a ce-
ment post. I gave the rear
of the car a huge wedgie,
broke the back window
and badly damaged the
left side of car as well.
I want to sell the car to
someone, who may want
the engine and/or the
tires. I have no idea how
to go about it. How do
I find such a buyer? -
Barbara
Tom: I guess "bizarre
accident" means you
backed into a cement
post while talking on the
phone, Barbara. Was this
one of those accidents
that ends with the phrase
"I'll have to call you
back"?
Ray: Well, a good
engine for a '98 Chrysler
minivan does have some
value. It's probably worth
$500-$700 these days.
And the tires are worth
something, too.
Tom: The problem, as
you well know, is finding
a buyer who happens to
need just these particular
parts right now. That's
traditionally been the job
of the junkyard. That's
one way to go.
Ray: Of course,
junkyard owners have
to make a living, so
they may give you $250
or $300 for the whole
vehicle. Then they'll take
it apart and sell the parts
for much more, in total.
Tom: So my sugges-
tion would be to try
advertising it on one
of the websites where
people sell each other
their junk, like Craigslist
or eBay, for instance.
Explain what you told
us that the engine is
in good shape, with low
mileage for its age, it
just had $2,000 worth of
repairs done, the tires
are new and it was in a
rear-end collision. Say


you're looking for some-
one who wants it for the
engine and parts, and
see what happens.
Ray: You might find a
nearby do-it-yourselfer
who just drove his '98
Voyager into a cement
pole frontward, and is
looking for exactly that
engine.
Tom: Or you might
hear crickets chirping.
In which case, you can
always take it to your
local junkyard then, and
take whatever they'll give
you for it. All you've lost
is a little time.
Ray: And the humilia-
tion of having to look at
the car in the driveway
for a few more weeks and
be reminded that you
backed into a pole. Good
luck, Barbara.

Does gas
gauge read
correctly after
tank was dented?
Dear Tom and Ray:
I'm sending this anony-
mously because I don't
want my friends to
know what a bonehead
I am. I went out to the
driveway to replace the
rear brake shoes on my
daughter's '98 Honda
Civic EX. I positioned
my floor jack under the
rear cross member, but
did not jack it up. I then
went into the garage to
get my jack stands, and
placed them beside the
car. Without checking
the jack, I started to
jack up the car. Some-
thing didn't seem right,
because the car hardly
lifted for the amount I
jacked. I looked under
the car and saw that
the floor jack had rolled
forward a few inches
and the saddle was
pushing up on the fuel
tank, which was now
dented in! I quickly
jacked down the car, but
the damage was done.
I drove the car through
the neighborhood and
up onto the interstate
to confirm that it still


would run fine. It now
has more than a thou-
sand miles on it since
I dented the fuel tank,
and it runs with no
problems. My ques-
tion: Is the fuel gauge
still accurate, or is it
incorrect because of the
dent in the tank? I have
gotten my daughter to
refill the tank whenever
the gauge registers half
a tank. It takes about
six gallons to fill it up
from there. My daughter
wants to drive beyond
half a tank on the gauge
to see if the gauge is ac-
curate down to empty.
I don't think she should
do this. What do you
guys think? By the way,
I did finally replace the
brake shoes, but she
doesn't let me work on
her car any longer. -
Joey
Tom: Don't worry, Joey.
Your secret is safe with
us. I mean, how many
Joeys can there be with
daughters who own
green '98 Honda Civic
EXs with bad gas gauges
writing from Maple
Street in Tallahassee,
Fla.?
Ray: With the last
name Sawyer?
Tom: We made that up,
by the way, readers. Joey,
I think your daughter has
to try the experiment.
And you need to be
following her with a five-
gallon gas container.
Ray: This car was still
using a metal tank in
1998. So you crumpled it.
But you probably didn't
deform it too badly;
otherwise, it would be
leaking now.
Tom: These tanks can
take a pretty good beat-
ing. I mean, they're not
designed to support a
2,500-pound car on the
saddle of a floor jack, but
they do get hit by rocks
and road debris and
snow banks, and they
manage to survive all
that stuff.
Ray: What you need
to find out is how much
you've reduced the


volume of the tank, and
whether you've inter-
fered with the operation
of the float, which tells
the gauge how much fuel
is left. And there's only
one way to do that, Joey.
Tom: If you really
wanted to be a good dad,
you wouldn't even make
your daughter par-
ticipate. You'd tap one of
your buddies (who now
knows what a bonehead
you are because you
wrote to us) and have
him follow you while you
drove your daughter's
car.
Ray: Here's what you'll
do. This car has a tank
that holds about 12 gal-
lons. You know the gauge
works fine between full
and half-full, because
you know that accounts
for six gallons. You also
know how many miles
that gets you. Let's say,
for the sake of argument,
that you get 150 miles
out of the first half of the
tank.
Tom: So you want drive
another 150 miles, or
until the tank is empty.
Along the way, you want
to correlate the mileage
with the reading on the
fuel gauge.
Ray: So when you've
driven 75 miles, is the
gauge reading a quarter-
full? If so, you know it's
accurate to the one-
quarter mark.
Tom: If the car runs out
of gas before you expect
it to, you'll want to note
what happens. Did the
gauge drop suddenly from
a quarter-full to E? Did it
stay on a quarter-full and
just run out of gas?
Ray: And with this
newfound, scientifically
derived information,
you'll be able to tell your
daughter exactly what
to expect, and when she
needs to fill up from now
on.
Tom: And by the way,
Joey, if the car runs out of
gas as soon as you leave
the house, you'll know
what you're getting her
for Christmas this year.

Time!


--- Six Steps to Success


1 Tired of trying to make your way around
that old blender, bassinet, those bikes and boxes of
cast-off clothing? Schedule a garage sale to convert
those extra items into cash.


2* Ask your friends if they want to join in. More
merchandise means more shoppers and more money
for everyone.


3 Clean and polish your items. Fold clothes
neatly and arrange them by size and gender. Group
small pieces (like jewelry) together into plastic bags
so they're easy to price and display.


4 e Arrange for plenty of tables and hanging
items so you can display everything prominently.
When it's time, set up your sale so people can move
around easily.


5 .Make a list of your best items, and then call
The Sun Classified to schedule your ad. Your ad rep
can help you create an ad that's sure to get customers
calling!


Through The Sun Classified, you'll send the
news of your sale to thousands of potential buyers.
So, get out your change box and get ready to sell!

Rocky mountain high safe

for most heart patients


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I am 53. Two years ago, I
had bypass surgery for a
single artery. Back then I
was a smoker; I no longer
am.
My heart doctor has
told me I can do anything
I want, and I have been
quite active. I play in a
basketball league and
have no trouble keep-
ing up with the younger
players.
I am also a skier. My
skiing friends have asked
me to join them on a ski
trip to the Rocky Moun-
tains. Where I live, the
"mountains" are more
like big hills. I haven't
asked my doctor about
this, but I will. I'd like
your opinion. R.B.
ANSWER: If you're in
good shape, and it sounds
like you are, then skiing
at higher altitudes ought
not to be a challenge to
your heart. Airplanes
maintain a cabin pressure
equivalent to being at
6,000 to 8,000 feet. If you
have no difficulty with air
travel, then you should be
OK for mountain skiing.
You are not active on an
airplane, so this isn't an
exact estimate of what
your heart can tolerate.
It's safe to ascend to
8,000 feet, but do so slow-
ly and stay at that height
for one night. Don't try to
do too much in your first
few days. If your skiing
is at higher altitudes, as-
cend no more than 2,000
feet a day and stay at that
new height overnight.
Continue in the same way
if you are planning to go
even higher.
As a general rule, what-
ever you tolerate at sea
level, you should be able
to exert at the same level
at high altitudes if you
pace your ascent sensibly
and do not try to exert to
the maximum in the first
few days.
Do talk this over with
your doctor. He knows
much more about your
heart than I do. I am
confident he will allow a
competitive basketball
player to ski at Rocky
Mountain heights.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
In a prior column you
advocated drinking a
daily amount of water
that would satisfy one's
thirst, not a set amount
of water as some people
believe. I agree with
you.
However, when I travel
to Colorado, I am urged
to drink glass after glass
of water to allay the ef-
fects of altitude. Do you
think this is valid advice?
- D.K.


Dr. Donohue
Readers may
write Dr
Donohue at
PO. Box
536475,
Orlando,
FL 32853-6475
ANSWER: I do.
Mountain air is dry.
Altitude makes a person
breathe more rapidly
than normal. Fluid is lost
from the lungs when a
person breathes fast. You
can become dehydrated
if you don't increase your
fluid intake. After a few
days of acclimatization,
you can ease off on your
water intake.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I am a 70-year-old male
who exercises six to seven
days a week. When do-
ing aerobic exercise, my
heart rate exceeds 140.
When playing tennis, it
can exceed 150. I wear a
heart-rate monitor.
I had successful abla-
tion in April 2010 for
atrial fibrillation. A CT
scan performed after the
ablation showed a fair
amount of calcification
in the proximal portions
of the left main coronary
artery, the left anterior
descending artery and
the circumflex artery. My
total cholesterol and HDL
cholesterol are good.
Should I reduce the
intensity of my exercise?
-L.L.
ANSWER: The only
way to safely answer
your question is for you
to submit to a stress test.
The stress test detects at
what heart rate your heart
circulation can or cannot
support that level of exer-
cise. It's the only definite
answer.
However, I have to say
that a heart rate of more
than 150 beats a minute
ought to produce some
warning signs if that is a
dangerous heart rate for
you. Warning signs are
things like chest pain and
great shortness of breath.
But I don't want to take
any chances. Neither
should you.
Dr Donohue regrets that
he is unable to answer
individual letters, but he
will incorporate them
in his column whenever
possible. Readers may
write him or request an

A life made easier


Dear Heloise: It was such
a tremendous pleasure
meeting the woman who
has been so quietly influ-
ential in my life. (Readers:
I was doing two seminars
at a women's conference in
Austin, Texas. Sireesha was
at one of them. Heloise)
Because of you, my mother,
who immigrated to the
United States 40 years ago,
learned all the tricks of tra-
ditional American house-
holds. Let me explain.
Moving here was no easy
task for my mother, Raju,
who left all the comforts of
home and her own "moth-
er's tips" to embark on a
journey from India to this
land, half a world away.
She did not grow up
using some of the com-
monly used household
items and was unaware of
many things that American
families had generationally
passed down.
It wasn't until she came
across her new friend Helo-
ise's column that she began
to feel just a little closer to
making this home.
The traditional Ameri-
can housewife my mother
was not. She worked and
took care of children, and
then went on to work at
one of the country's most
prestigious cancer institu-
tions, dedicating her life
to researching a cure for
breast cancer.
She taught my brother
and me how problem-solv-
ing did not have to be such
a chore, like using bak-
ing soda and vinegar. She
constantly came up with in-
genious ways to solve some


Hints from Heloise

of life's (and the kitchen's)
worst problems, simply and
effectively.
There were so many days
when I would come home
and your column was cut
from the Houston Chroni-
cle, posted on the refrigera-
tor, right next to my recent
artwork or a calendar of up-
coming family events. She
knew we wouldn't read it,
but she strategically placed
these newspaper cutouts so
that by whatever means, we
would learn.
Now, married with a
home of my own, I find
myself asking my mom
how to get something out
of this, or how best to use
that, and every time, her
answer begins with "Helo-
ise says ..."
Thank you, Heloise.
You've been a part of our
family for so long and will
continue to be what we
pass down to our next
generations. Sireesha R.,
Austin, Texas
It was wonderful to meet
you and hear about your
mother. I'm thrilled that
my column helped ease
the transition to American
housekeeping. You have a
smart mother! Heloise

Friend fears middle-schooler's MALLARD FILLMORE By Bruce Tinsle

romance is headed for trouble r a


DEAR ABBY: My friend
"Kayla" and I are 12 and in
seventh grade. Recently,
Kayla informed me that
she has acquired a new
boyfriend. I didn't mind
when she showed me all
his lovey-dovey texts. I
thought they were ador-
able.
When I asked Kayla
why her boyfriend didn't
sit with us at lunch, she
laughed and said, "Oh,
he doesn't go to school
here. He's a junior in high
school." That's why I'm
writing.
Kayla is telling me that
she and "Jacob" are mak-
ing out, and their texts
are getting progressively
worse. Plus, Kayla has said
her parents are taking her
and Jacob to a concert. The
concert is out of town and
they will be renting a hotel
room. I'm worried for my
friend.
Am I incorrect for think-
ing this is wrong?
-WORRIED FRIEND IN
WASHINGTON STATE
DEARWORRIED
FRIEND: I agree with you
that at 12, Kayla is too
young to have a 16-year-old
boyfriend. That her parents
give her enough unsuper-
vised time with him that
they're involved in makeout
sessions is also troubling. If
this continues, Kayla could
become pregnant and Jacob
could be accused of statu-
tory rape even if Kayla
was a willing participant.
Talk to your mother
about what's going on. She
may want to chat with Kay-
la's parents about this and
mention the texts Jacob is
sending their daughter.
DEAR ABBY: I have a
question that may seem
odd, but I hope you can
give me an answer.
I know children can tell
when a parent favors one
sibling over another. What
about cats? I adopted two
cats not littermates -
from a shelter. While I love
them both, one drives me
crazy and the other is a
sweet lovebug. Naturally, I
prefer the sweet, cuddly one.
Can the kitty that drives
me nuts tell that I prefer
his "sister" over him? -
LOVE 'EM BOTH, REALLY,
ALBANY, N.Y.


Dear Abby

DEAR LOVE'EM BOTH:
While I'm more of a people
expert than an animal
behaviorist, let me share
this. Cats and dogs, after
thousands of years of living
so closely with us humans,
are indeed sensitive to hu-
man emotions. They can
tell when we're happy, when
we are nervous and when
we're depressed. If you lav-
ish affection and/or treats
on one and not the other, it
can create jealousy.
You don't know the
history of the cats you
adopted. It's possible the
one that makes you "crazy"
had less human contact
than "Lovebug" or was
mistreated in some way.
With patience and posi-
tive reinforcement he may
come around, so please
don't give up on him.
DEAR ABBY: One of my
brothers, "Carl," walked
away from our family 18
years ago. My parents are
elderly and in poor health.
When they pass, how do
we refer to this sibling in
the obituary? DRAWING
A BLANK IN OHIO
DEAR DRAWING A
BLANK: The entire family
history does not have to be
revealed in the obituary. All
it should say is, "Survivors
include: daughter Wendy,
(husband, if there is one)
of Ohio; son George, (wife);
and son Carl." If you know
where Carl is, include the
information. If not, his
name should be enough.
DEAR READERS: The
year is almost over. Am
I the only one who can't
believe how fast it has
gone? Incredible! From the
bottom of my heart, I wish
all of you a happy, healthy
and prosperous 2012. If you
plan on driving tonight,
please don't drink. And if
you'll be drinking tonight,
please don't drive. Stay safe,
everyone! LOVE, ABBY


"But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a
snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which
drown men in destruction and perdition."
- 1 Timothy 6:9
If you thought money was the answer to all your
problems, stop and consider this truth. Set your
priorities on the things of God.

thing immediately, and this instant recognition will

it up.

the final seconds of the year, you'll be sure to say
goodbye to old pain and hello to new adventures.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Interacting with
loved ones will be an absolute dream.You'll be
working out your feelings on both a conscious and a
subconscious level over the next two days.
