New VHS cafeteria opens


STAFF REPORT

Though their new class-
rooms will not be available
until August, Venice High
School students are now
enjoying an important part of
their school day a new caf-
eteria. Party balloons, popcorn
and surprise activities were
part of the grand opening for
the new 28,000-square-foot
eatery Monday.
The cafeteria is the first part
of the campus reconstruc-
tion project to be ready for
students. Rather than build-
ing a new structure, Sara-
sota County School District
converted the former media
center. Construction began
on the new cafeteria in June
2011 and is projected to cost
$6 million.
"The new caf6 at Venice
High School is going to
provide a much needed new
beautiful facility for our
students and staff," said VHS
Principal Jack Turgeon. "Our
students and staff are going
to enjoy the large spacious
inside eating area along with
a covered outside eating area.
This is our first completed
building of our new construc-
tion and we're very excited to
move into it."
VHS construction project
manager Sue Bouffard said
the idea to repurpose the
media center was born of a
number of favorable condi-
tions: the age of the structure,
its location on the campus
and changes in the nature of
instructional media.
The media center is a
relatively new structure with
a contemporary appearance
that fits well with the rest of
the newVHS buildings. It is
conveniently located in close
proximity to the planned
location of the school's new
classroom wing and central
courtyard, an ideal spot for
the cafeteria.
Another key element in
the decision to convert the
media center into the caf-
eteria was the dramatic shift
over the past several years
from books to digital media as
the primary means by which
students access information.
The result has been an equally
dramatic drop in the need for
the physical space to house
books in a school media cen-
ter. The new media center will
occupy about 12,000 square
feet of floor space in the new

posed from the former media center as part of an overall school rebuild.


administration building, less
than half the size of the old
media center.
The new cafeteria will
accommodate 640 customers
in the main dining space and
74 in an auxiliary dining area.
Additional dining space is
available outdoors.
Bouffard said the new facil-
ity was designed with effi-
ciency and sustainability in
mind.
"The mechanical, electrical
and plumbing systems are all
designed to conserve natu-
ral resources," she said, and


construction materials with
the lowest possible emission
of organic gases and highest
possible recycled content were
used.
District Food Services
Director Beverly Girard said
the new facility is expected to
improve student participation
in the district lunch program,
which will ensure that more
students are getting a health-
ful meal each day.
"We know that students
are more likely to participate
in the school meal programs
when they are in a nicer,


newer facility," she said.
She said having more serv-
ing lines will reduce serving
time, which also will be an
incentive for busy students to
eat in the cafeteria.
"Having a larger, more
appealing, more efficient
cafeteria will greatly enhance
our ability to more effectively
focus on food presentation,
marketing, and customer ser-
vice," she said.
On Tuesday cafeteria staff
agreed many more students
appear to be taking advantage
of the new food court.


BALL


Former


Venice


police


chief dies

By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR

Longtime Venetian and
retired police chief Verlon L.
Ball, 76, died Jan. 3 in Venice.
He was a police officer for 31
years and served as Venice's
top cop from 1984 to 1987,
when he retired.
Ball was born in Boonesville,
Ky., and moved to Venice in
1950, when he was 14 years
old. He attended Venice-
Nokomis High School, where
he played football.
After high school, he worked
for Mayflower Moving and
Storage Co. before joining the
five-man Venice Police Depart-
ment in 1956, supported by a
$26,000 budget.
He worked his way up
through the ranks, being
promoted to sergeant in 1960.
By then the police force had
grown to seven.
In 1967 he was promoted to
lieutenant and by 1971 he was
promoted to captain.
In December 1984 he was
promoted to top cop from
within by the city manager and
confirmed by council to replace
outgoing police chief Ray
Waymire, who took disability
due to a heart condition. The
force was by now 34 strong.
Ball, who applied for
Waymire's position seven years
earlier, pledged to maintain
Waymire's commitment to
pursuing educational training
for its officers, a legacy that
remains to this day.
According to news reports at
the time, at first Ball was cool
to the idea, but eventually he

Plan to reduce homelessness has evolved


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

After helping launch the
10-Year Plan to Prevent and
End Homelessness initiative in
February, Richard Martin said
the plan started "merging"
with the problem of homeless-
ness in South Sarasota County
that began with the economic
downturn and foreclosures.
"I think it's going to be
a work in progress," said
Martin, executive director the


Suncoast Partnership to End
Homelessness. "A lot of the
fire in the belly of this plan,
for me, came from Venice
and Englewood and North
Port, where there was all of a
sudden this realization no
more denying the fact that
poverty was settling in."
Counting the area's homeless
population is difficult. When
the Suncoast Partnership
conducted the 2011 Homeless
Census on Jan. 24 in Sara-
sota and Manatee counties,


organizers connected with
some 1,242 people who met
the definition of homeless.
Meanwhile, an additional
1,229 homeless Sarasota
County students were pro-
vided services during the
last school year, according to
Schoolhouse Link, a partner-
ship between the Sarasota
Family YMCA and the Sarasota
County School Board.
By 2015, nearly 50,000 more

A mother manatee and her calf swim past the dock
of a canal. As the weather cools, manatees leave
chilly Gulf waters seeking the relative warmth
of area canals. When Gulf temperatures drop
below 68 degrees during cold snaps, manatees
sometimes cluster around warm-water sources
such as springs and power plant discharge canals.
Temperatures below 68 degrees for long periods
can trigger cold stress in manatees, accounting
for about one-third of manatee mortalities on
average, according to wildlife researchers.

Manatees head



for warmer waters


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER

The recent drop in tempera-
ture may not pose an immedi-
ate threat to manatees, but the
chill could send them to warm-
water havens.
Martine DeWit, a senior
researcher with the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Research Institute
in St. Petersburg, said she has
heard recent reports in Tampa
and on Florida's east coast of
manatees gathering at warm-
water havens near power plants.
With the drop in tempera-
tures from the 80s and 60s
to the 40s, DeWit said, "they
will start using (warm-water
havens) more heavily."
Locally,
manatees
'lare known
to gather
in creeks
and canals
along
SCharlotte
Harbor
and Lemon
Bay, in the
Myakka
River, and


in Myakkahatchee Creek in
North Port.
Cold water poses a health
threat to the marine mammals
during sustained periods of
air temperatures hovering in
the 30s, which lead to drops in
water temperatures, DeWit said.
According to state research-
ers, exposure to water tempera-
tures below 68 degrees for long
periods can trigger cold stress
in manatees. During periods of
sustained cold waters, mana-
tees can suffer weight loss, skin
lesions or abscesses, dehydra-
tion, constipation, other disor-
ders and infections.
At the beginning of 2011,
sustained cold led to 110 of the
440 reported manatee deaths
through Dec. 16 resulting directly
from cold stress. Two of those
dead manatees were recovered
from Sarasota and three from
Charlotte County waters.
Among the other causes
of manatee mortalities, FWC
reports:
86 died from watercraft inju-
ries, of which, three were recov-
ered in Charlotte County waters,
one in Sarasota and 14 in Lee.
Two died in flood gates and

Cruisers end the year on a roll


By SUSAN ERWIN
STAFF WRITER

A group of 75 physi-
cally fit bicyclists
between the ages of
about 50 and 90 gathered
Saturday morning at the
Lock 'N Key Restaurant
on Manasota Key to
complete a 30-mile ride.
The Coastal Cruis-
ers Bicycle Club gath-
ers annually on the last
morning of each year to
celebrate fitness and fun
and to end the year with
healthy aspirations.
The club currently has
about 500 members.
Pat Ohearn has been a
member of the club for
seven years.
When she moved here
from Massachusetts, she
said she didn't know a
soul in the area.
She heard about the
organization and was
inspired by the idea of
getting some exercise
while enjoying the social
benefits of spending time
with others who had the
same goal.
"This is such an abso-
lutely wonderful social
group; I feel so fortu-
nate to have met these
people," Ohearn said.
Ride leader Joe Cal-
deraro split the group
of riders into several
categories.
Those who wanted
to ride at a speed of 17
miles per hour or faster
were asked to head to the
front of the line.
Following them was
a group riding between
15-17 mph, and then
a group that preferred
a more leisurely pace
below 15 mph.
"There are many varia-
tions," Calderaro said.
"We break each ride into
subgroups every rider
has a different goal."
Calderaro was a runner
for years, then started
having issues with pain
in his knees, so he began
bicycle riding a year ago.
"My doctor suggested
this would be better for
me, so I followed the
advice," Calderaro said.
To ensure the pace
was kept, a ride leader
was assigned to each
category.
Before departing north
on Manasota Key Road,
the group was briefed by
safety coordinator Don
Slemmer.
"Keep focused, peo-
ple," Slemmer advised
the riders. "Unfortu-

75 bike riders joined in the annual ride. This local bike club was

accidents, and the most
common ones are bike

communicate."
Bob Carroll, president
of the club, said there
is a strong emphasis on
safety that they try to
stress to each member.
"It can be a pretty dan-
gerous sport particu-
larly going up the Key,"


Carroll said. "We always
try to ride single file so it
makes it easier for cars to
pass us."
There were four stops
planned during the
30-mile ride two water
stops and two rest-area
stops.
The group took off at
the Lock 'N Key Restau-
rant and headed north

Joe Calderaro.

Park in Venice, and then
planned to return land
side through Englewood
Isles and take the same
route back.
"We take the back

it gets too compli-
cated with the groups,"
Calderaro said.
The ride started at
8:30 a.m. sharp, and Cal-
deraro said the groups


were expected to start
to arriving back around
10:30 a.m.
An optional lunch at
the Lock 'N Key Res-

have been riding four
or five times a week for
years and keep a more

Smith sentenced to life in prison


By LAURA C. MOREL
BRADENTON HERALD
Delmer Smith III was sen-
tenced to life in prison without
parole last week in an armed
home invasion and armed
kidnapping Sarasota case. He
was found guilty of the charges
earlier this month.
Smith, garbed in a yellow
jumpsuit and brown sandals,
told the court during the
sentencing hearing that the
three-day trial, which began
Dec. 5, was not fair because
many factors had been left
out, including the victim's 911
call in which she describes the
suspect as a black male, and
that deputies refused to turn
in their DNA. Smith asked why

North Port, looks over the paper-

in prison Wednesday in a Sarasota
Court.
police at the crime scene didn't
give DNA samples.
"I am innocent of all these
charges," the 40-year-old said,
adding that he would bring the


truth out through the appeals
process.
He has 30 days to appeal.
Smith was found guilty Dec. 8
for breaking into a Sarasota
home on March 14, 2009, tying
a woman inside with electri-
cal cords and ransacking the
residence.
After his sentencing, Smith
was fingerprinted inside the
courtroom.
Among the crowd was Nicole
Mitchell, the victim in the case,
and Dr. James Briles, the wid-
ower of Kathleen Briles, who
allegedly was killed by Smith
with an antique sewing machine
in her Terra Ceia home Aug. 3,
2009.
Briles smiled after the sen-
tencing. A person in the crowd


whispered, "That's a beautiful
sight."
Outside the courtroom, Diane
Brinker, Kathleen's sister, hugged
prosecutor Elizabeth Scanlan.
There are other trials of
Smith pending in Manatee and
Sarasota counties.
On Feb. 27, Smith is scheduled
to go to trial in Manatee County,
court records show. In this
case, Smith allegedly grabbed a
61-year-old woman from behind
on April 21, 2009, and forced her
into her home in the 200 block
of 32nd St. N.W. in Bradenton,
an arrest warrant affidavit shows.
Once inside, Smith, wearing a ski
mask and black clothing, placed a
gun to the victim's face and said,
"Where is your purse ... I need
crack," the affidavit states.


Smith then allegedly emptied
the woman's jewelry box and
stole money. When her husband
came home, Smith allegedly
pointed the gun at him. Smith
then tied both victims and
gagged their mouths.
In this case, Smith is charged
with armed home invasion rob-
bery and can face life in prison.
Smith also is slated to go
to trial July 16, court records
show. In this instance, Smith
is charged with bludgeoning
Briles. If found guilty, he could
face the death penalty.
Two other home invasion
trials in Sarasota are set for
September.
"When he's not breathing ...
then I'll be happy," Brinker said
outside the courtroom.

Pawn shop expands to focus on jewelry


"We've moved and
expanded threefold," said
Terry Rhoades, co-owner
with JeffTaube of Venice
Estate Jewelry & Pawn,
1940 South Tamiami
Trail, South Venice.
Redesigning the
interior d6cor, their
intentions are to make
it a high-quality jewelry
store.
As a pawn shop they
purchase or loan on a
60-day basis on pre-
owned jewelry, includ-
ing chains, necklaces,
charms and rings and
Rolexes; tools, game
systems; electronics;
and weed-whackers and
hedge-trimmers.
Rhoades, from Dan-
ville, Ind., moved with his
family to Miami, where
for 40 years he bought
and sold antique watches


at watch shows around
the nation. In 1985 he
joined his parents in
Englewood, maintain-
ing his interest in watch
shows, then in 2008 with
Taube opened their first
store in the Ark Plaza.
The store opens
at 10 a.m. Monday
through Saturdays. Call

Jackson's closes
A surprise finish to
2011 was the closure of
Jackson's American Grill,
117W. Venice Ave., on
New Year's Eve.
"Jackson's was doing
fine, but running a res-
taurant is for the young
and energetic," said
David Macrea, owner.
It will reopen for lunch
and dinner by Feb. 1
under a new name.
"The new tenants are
very nice people and
will do very well. I have
tasted their food and it is
excellent," stated Macrea.
There are a few
changes to be made,
including equipment, in
order to reopen. Details
to follow.

be customized charac-
ters, animals, seasonal

flavors of mint, chocolate
chip, lemon coconut and
more.

Cookie promises nutrition, health benefits


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

"Half a billion people
will have diabetes in 10
to 20 years, and here we
have the perfect solu-
tion to reduce the risk of
complications of dia-
betes, like obesity," said
Dr. Bo Martinsen.
He and Dr. Anne-Marie
Chalmers, M.D., created
their groundbreaking
Omega Cookie and in the
past few days launched
Omega Passion with a
world premiere at the
Paris Food Ingredients
Show in France.
In 2008 the two
omega-3 experts


founded Ambo Foods,
727 Commerce Drive, in
a 7,500-square-foot plant
where their research and
development has led to
the creation of omega-3
fish oil products. On
Jan. 1 the company
relaunched as Omega-3
Innovations, better defin-
ing their objectives and
products.
"Fish oil is the big-
gest technical challenge
to manufacturing, and
we are the only com-
pany in the whole world
which has managed to
create a product low
in sugar, but high in
fibers and omega-3,"
said Martinsen. "Unlike


competitors, we use
only fish which have all
the required omega-3, a
technique we have mas-
tered using no flavor and
artificial flavorings."
Their new project,
"No Brain Left Behind,"
aims to improve educa-
tion about omega-3, an
extremely important
ingredient to the sur-
vival of industrialized
nations.
Completely ignored are
two key factors how
physical exercise and
nutrition influence chil-
dren's learning abilities,
said Chalmers. They go
to school hungry and are
expected to have a great


learning experience, but
it is necessary to be well
rested and to have eaten
the right kind of food
for breakfast. Omega-3
cookies are the ideal
solution for distribution
to pupils, but schools
cannot afford it, she said.
Omega Passion is
a one-of-a-kind dark
chocolate made with fish
oils and oats, extremely
low in sugar and carbo-
hydrates. Equivalent to a
bowl of oats, after eating
it you will not be hun-
gry for four hours, said
Chalmers. Two inches
square, weighing an
ounce with 150 calories,
it is eaten like ice cream


and increases exercise
performance. Taken
daily, it is the perfect
snack retailing at $2 to
$2.50, but it has to be
kept frozen.
Relaunched using a
new formula and pack-
aging, Omega-3 cookies
are eaten in one serving
and have a shelf life of
one year, but have to be
kept frozen. Not yet in
stores they are available
from the company, on
the Internet and at the
Sarasota Farmers Market.
The company is getting
inquiries from Australia,
England, Norway and
Kuwait, which wants
distribution in the whole


Middle East.
Omega-3 Innovations
is the first company to
create a bakery product
containing an effective
dose of omega-3 fish oil
and was an 2010 inno-
vation category winner
in the Economic Devel-
opment Corporation's
Hall of Fame Awards.
The partners are work-
ing with Grow Florida,
a state project assist-
ing small companies as
they continue clinical
trials, testing different
flavors and research and
develop manufacturing
products.

Grants cycle begins anew for nonprofits


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

County Commissioner
Christine Robinson is
seeking the participa-
tion of administrators of
south Sarasota County
arts and cultural organi-
zations this year in the
county's Tourist Devel-
opment Cultural/Arts
grants program.
"I am asking for your
help in increasing South
County participation
in seeking cultural and
arts grants," Robinson
wrote in an email.
"These are grants used
to attract tourism and
will enhance the eco-
nomic activity for South
County, so they are very
important."
The Arts and Cultural
Alliance of Sarasota
County, which adminis-
ters more than $1 million
each year in arts and cul-
ture grants, will conduct
an orientation for the


2012-13 grant cycle from
10 a.m. to noon Thursday
at Gulf Coast Community
Foundation, 601 South
Tamiami Trail, Venice.
Another session is
scheduled for Friday
(time to be announced)
at the Arts and Cultural
Alliance's downstairs
conference room, 1226
North Tamiami Trail,
Suite 300, Sarasota.
Grants are available
to organizations with
"recognized ability to
produce, present and
promote cultural and
arts activities that appeal
to tourists," according
to information provided
by Sarasota County
government.
According to the
county, requirements
further include that
organizations:
Have completed one
full year of operation as a
nonprofit prior to appli-
cation deadline
Make the project


accessible to the public
and to disabled people
Demonstrate that the
project has artistic/cul-
tural purpose
Be exempt from fed-
eral taxation
Match the dollar
amount requested on a
dollar-for-dollar basis,
showing revenue spe-
cifically contributed for
the program (25 per-
cent of the match may
be in-kind for smaller
organizations)
In September, Sarasota
County commissioners
made recommendations
to the alliance that may
benefit South County
arts organizations.
Before unanimously
approving a $1.6 million
contract for the alliance
to administer the
program for fiscal year
2011-12, commissioners
decreed:
The alliance panel
that approves grants con-
tain at least one South


County resident/member
of the arts community.
South County is defined
as living south of Black-
burn Point Road.
The alliance make
efforts and document
them to increase
participation of South
County arts groups. This
is a goal, not a mandate.
The alliance make
reasonable efforts to pro-
vide guidelines and make
it a goal to accommo-
date funding of start-up


organizations.
Venice Theatre and
Historic Spanish Point
were the only South
County organizations
to apply for and receive
tourist-tax funds through
the alliance for the
current cycle. Venice
Theatre received $91,444,
while Historic Spanish
Point received grants for
$16,296 and $7,639 a
$23,935 total.
Some 25 appli-
cant organizations


countywide received 32
project grants totaling
$1,250,547. New appli-
cants with questions

Myakka Utilities, which
received an easement to
enter the property some 37
years ago from the previ-
ous park owner, provided
utilities to the park until
the mid-1990s. Now it's an
investment property, and
its owners had wanted to
develop the site and had
county approval for 153
manufactured home units.
Construction was expected
to begin this year.

"When we see a strange
guy walking the streets
of Venice, we're going to
stop him," Ball said in a
1984 interview with the
Gondolier. "... check his
identification ... even if
he was planning on doing
something illegal, he'll
change his mind."

Maintaining that focus
is a challenge going
forward as they imple-
ment the plan, which
was unveiled Dec. 21 in
South Venice. The next
step is for team members
to present the plan to
local elected officials, in
2012. Possible results of
the plan that will require
government funds
include the construction
of a one-stop day center
and additional emer-
gency shelter beds in
South County.

La Casa residents balked
at that because they would
have had no control over
how the property was
developed, even though
the only land access to
the 40 acres is through
the entry gate on U.S. 41
at El Prado, La Casa's pri-
vate road. Some La Casa
residents feared Myakka
Utilities legally would have
developed a community
for young families within
their 55-and-over park.
When the transac-
tion concludes, lawsuits
filed by Myakka Utilities


against the homeowners
association and by the
homeowners association
against Sarasota County
will be dismissed.
The homeowners
association told residents
that failure to purchase
the property could result
in park security being
compromised and prop-
erty values decreasing,
if the proposed 153-unit
development is started
- but not completed -
on the 40-acre parcel.

SUN NEWSPAPERS


OUR VIEW



Leave fertilizer rules in local hands


Some people in Tallahassee just
can't seem to leave well enough
alone when it comes to efforts
to heighten water protection on the
local level.
A new bill has surfaced in the
state House and Senate that would
allow commercial landscapers to
sidestep strict local fertilizer ordi-
nances, like the ones enacted in
all municipalities along the Gulf
Coast (except one) from Manatee
to Lee County. It would weaken the
ordinances by removing the most
important segment of the public
from the purview of the rules. And
why? You can bet heavy lobbying by
the fertilizer and commercial land-
scaping has something to do with it.
And there's little doubt the special
interests are feeding on lawmakers'
desire to be as business-friendly as
possible right now.
No one questions why counties and
cities along the coast have enacted
special fertilizer ordinances in
recent years. The people who live


here accept the fact that limiting the
amount of nitrogen and phospho-
rus that run off into the waterways
improves the quality of the natural
ecosystems that residents and visi-
tors enjoy and rely on, and it helps
protect an economy that depends on
clean water.
Indeed, an analysis this year by the
Charlotte Harbor National Estuary
Program confirms the connection
between stricter fertilizer standards in
the city of Venice and Sarasota County
and the improved vitality of Roberts
Bay and the Intracoastal Waterway.
As Lisa Beever, the executive director
of the Charlotte Harbor NEP recently
told Sun staff writer Greg Martin,
"These ordinances have effectively
reduced excess nitrogen and phos-
phorus by tons per year." Add to that
the cost savings to homeowners who
use less fertilizer while losing noth-
ing in the vitality of their lawns and
landscapes.
As we've said repeatedly, the local
rules that limit the type and amount


of fertilizer that can be applied are
smart, economical and painless
ways for homeowners, property
associations and businesses to be
good stewards of the environment.
Still, the move to protect the fer-
tilizer and landscaping industry
persists.
The latest effort House Bill 421
and Senate Bill 604 would exempt
state-certified fertilizer applicators
from local ordinances. To opt out, all
operators would have to be certified
in the state's Best Management Prac-
tices as they must already. Under
the proposed state law, those busi-
nesses would be exempt from local
controls, including a blackout period
June 1-Sept. 30, when no fertilizer
may be applied.
Landscapers are adapting to the
new rules, the latest of which was
passed this year in Charlotte County.
The new law would only confuse the
matter, creating a patchwork system
in what is now a fairly uniform stan-
dard from Manatee to Lee County


- again, except for Punta Gorda.
Homeowners would be held to the
higher standards. Some landscap-
ers would continue to honor the
regional regulations, while some
would not.
Of course, it makes little sense.
The whole thing makes even less
sense considering the state and
federal governments are about to
enact numeric nutrient limits to
pollution.
We all know it's easier and cheaper
to keep nitrogen and phosphorus
from getting into the water in the
first place, rather than removing
it once it gets there. As Sarasota
County Commissioner Jon Thaxton
told the Sun, "It's a disappointing
maneuver, one of many that have
been offered by the fertilizer indus-
try in a way to circumvent what we
consider our lawful right to maintain
our local control of protecting our
water bodies."
Yes, it is. Unfortunately, it seems par
for the course.


Half plus one


< \


I was having difficulty mak-
ing deadline for this column,
as a battle I participated in
for 25 years caught my atten-
tion this morning, and I had a
question. The other participant
and I sparred on Facebook
for a time and we got a little
heated. Then it dawned on me
the best you can hope for in
any situation is half the people,
plus one like you.
As this is a national election
year, my radar perks up and I
demonstrate more passion than
in nonelection years. I am much
more interested in the people's
response to how the candidates
constantly spin the message
they want conveyed. It almost
seems our candidates think that
most of the American people are
just not capable of distinguish-
ing truth from mistruth when it
is layered with 85 lines of nonis-
sue answers. Is it possible that
we are less smart than they?
It seems that a debate would
clearly give us an idea of how a
candidate would behave han-
dling some of the most complex
issues ever faced in America.
However, watching these leaders
interact and avoid direct truth
in their answers leads me to
believe in advice my grandfather
gave me years ago concerning
politicians. He would say, "Half
plus one. The best way to judge
a politician is to know what half
he is talking to."
My grandfather loved to
teach me his rules when there
was an election of any sort. He
would teach me to determine
whom the candidates were
really speaking to whenever
they graced us with a speech.
Presidential elections were the
best, as television gave us cov-
erage of all the stops. My grand-
father taught me to watch how
the message in Iowa may not be
the same message in Georgia,
and how the best talker man-
aged to deliver a different view
in a different state.
Well I was young. I listened


half-heartedly and watched
the political mechanism rolled
through our country with my
grandfather. I watched with
joy as his choices won and I
watched with sadness as he
deflated when his candidate
conceded.
Through it all my grandfa-
ther taught me to listen to what
people are really saying and to
know which half they are talking
to, too. He would quiz me on
the meaning of speeches and
be hard on me when I did not
see "the angle" of course, the
angle was what he thought it
should be. Whenever I look back
over the times we had, I see
now that he allowed me to form
different opinions than he and
we would debate them for what
seemed like hours. Our debates
would be passionate and he
would chastise me when I took
it to a personal level.
"Debate facts, young man.
All the rest is rhetoric, and per-
sonal emotion leads to idiocy"
he would say when I took my
debate to a singular level.
The new year brings me
hope and so much excitement,
as this is an election year. My
grandfather would be proud
if he could watch me dissect
each of the Republican can-
didates, and we would debate
deep into the nights on what I
thought I had discovered if he
were here. More important,
he would know that his life
lessons were not wasted.
So here is hoping we all pay
a bit more attention to which
half the politicians speak to
before we pull the lever in
November. The next president
has to be the right one for the
times we face.
Throughout my life I have
used the debating skills
learned from my grandfather,
and frankly, I love to debate
anything at any time; my staff
will tell you that is so. Having
said that, I realize the only way
to make your point is to win
half ... plus one.
Before I go, Earl Midlam has
led an incredible effort to restore
Old Betsy, the originalVenice
fire truck. He just reported he
is still taking donations and is
very close to finalizing the whole
effort. Please help if you can,
and thank Earl when you see
him. Photos are in the works.

Stripped. A Let'em Have It
caller was concerned the Cir-
cus Arena seats were taken out
and sold. They weren't. They
were stripped in preparation to
be resurfaced, and are still in
the arena. Bleeding hearts.
Ground safety. Another
crash at the airport and
nobody on the ground has
been injured in the two
minor crashes. You can start
complaining again about the
airport. If you don't like it, go
away!
Not impossible. Another
tragic crash at the Venice
Municipal Airport. The people
involved will not quit adding
to this airport until they make
worldwide headlines again.
What if the latest headline
said, "Thousands injured by
a jet that crashed in flames
into the new Circus Arena,
which was just completed
a month ago and was hold-
ing a rock concert." Who are
the people attempting to put
such madness together so that
such a tragedy could possibly
occur? The airport and arenas
close by do not mix. Stop the
madness.
Just once. We're just fine
with once-a-week trash pick
up. Secure your garbage bags.
Secure your garbage cans.
There are no flies on us.
Proud. I watched the
Venice street parade on TV
the other night and it was an
excellent parade. The floats
were really beautiful. Venice
should be very proud of their
parade.
Good care. As a past patient,
three times, in the Venice
Regional Medical Center
emergency room, I have had
wonderful treatment. On one
of my visits because of the
serious nature of my disorder
I was kept in the ER until they
found room for me in inten-
sive care. My husband, also a


Let 'em


Have It
patient in the Venice Regional
Medical Center ER, raves about
his care. Just want the public
to know. It is great having this
available to us.
Different opinion. I beg to
differ about the comments
that the person had concern-
ing the Venice Regional Medi-
cal Center Emergency Room.
I have found the people there
courteous and prompt and I
have received excellent service
when I have been at the emer-
gency room.
Discouragement. Venice
City Council thinks it is a great
idea to market the airport and
attract even more jets, helicop-
ters and flight school cowboys.
This means more noise, pollu-
tion and, as we've seen, more
danger. What a perfect way to
discourage people from buying
a home in Venice.
No rush. I own several prop-
erties here in Venice so I feel
that I have the financial right
to make these comments. Last
season I was down here and
they were building a restroom
at Caspersen Beach. This year


I'm down here and they're
still building a restroom at
Caspersen Beach. Parking
is cut way back because the
construction areas are now
being used by equipment
instead of being used to park
cars. Not sure what kind of
contract they've got that takes
six or eight months to build a
restroom. Something is wrong
with this picture. I certainly
hope it was the best price
because they're not getting
their money's worth. Also,
along with the parking, how
about having some paving
here in Caspersen? I know it's
a national park and a national
preserve, but they said they

I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Why buy American?

Editor:
If we want to get this
country's economy mov-
ing and back on track,
we need to support the
small business owners
and not the large corpo-
rations that outsource to
low-income third world
countries. The workers in
these countries are mis-
treated and not paid well.
It is only the business
owners who are profiting
from this outsourcing.
I am a small-business
owner and when I go to
market, I ask each ven-
dor where their invento-
ry is produced. I try very
hard to buy U.S.-made
clothing for my shop. It
can be done but there
are many items that you
cannot find made here,
such as jewelry and
accessories. Most are
produced in China.
When I grew up in New
England we had factories
making jewelry, shoes
and clothing. Now these
factories are empty and
in disrepair. Many people
have lost their jobs. This
is all due to greed of large
businesses.
If each of us checked
labels and concentrated
on buying articles made
here in our own country,
we would help small
businesses and put
people back to work.

Just leave us alone

Editor:
I agree with the writer:
Keep yoga on the beach.
Someone always
wants to change things
but not make them
better. I like to walk the
beach in the morning
and enjoy seeing all the
yoga people and their
great instructor, Elin.
I try to think of a
reason Sarasota County
would want to discontin-
ue activities. At one time
they wanted to charge
yoga and volleyball
participants for using the
beach. Too much govern-
ment in our lives. Next
they will probably try to
stop people from putting
chairs out for parades.
It is easy to complain.
Look at all the flak about
Pineapples. It looks fine
- subdued colors, like a
pineapple. Makes sense,
but when it was be-
ing painted, you would
think it was the most
important subject in the


world to write about.
Look what the airport
issue cost the taxpay-
ers. If you do not like
the noise, do not buy a
home near the airport.
It's not rocket science.
There are other things
going on in our com-
munity and the world to
be concerned about. Im-
portant issues. Lighten
up, enjoy life.

Thanks for the tribute

Editor:
Every year the Deaterly
home on West Venice Av-
enue erects a spectacular
and captivating tribute
to the season. This year's
display recognizes the
dedication of those who
make Venice the wonder-
ful city it is: city of Venice

Honor was
well-deserved

Editor:
I was pleased to read
about Venice High School
teacher Danielle Tanaka
receiving the Sarasota
County School District's
High School Teacher of
the Year Award. I was not
at all surprised.
I met Danielle 10 years
ago when I hired her as a
consultant for the foun-
dation. She impressed
me as bright, talented,
and principled.
Gulf Coast Commu-
nity Foundation con-
gratulates Danielle and
Venice High for this high
achievement.

These rules save lives

Editor:
I was driving on the
island the other morning
early, before the shops
opened up. It was a
pleasure to see so many
people out riding their
bicycles and enjoying
our beautiful Florida
weather.
With our new over-
pass completed and the
Legacy Trail open all the
way to Sarasota, I think
Venice has a great deal
to be thankful for as we
start a new year.
Venice wants to be a
destination location for
bicyclists from around
the world. This could be
a big money maker for
Sarasota County, not to
mention the health ben-
efits for our residents.
I myself like to ride.
I went to Google and
typed in Florida state
bicycle laws. I think
that a list should be
made available to
everyone who wants to
ride here and that the
police should enforce
these common-sense
laws. Some people who
moved here from other
states are unaware they
are breaking the law ev-
ery time they ride their
bicycles. Here are some
of the interesting things
I learned.
1. A cyclist on a
roadway must ride on
the side reserved for
his direction of travel.
Riding in the opposite
direction, so as to face
oncoming traffic, dou-
bles the risk of collision
with a motor vehicle and
is a contributing factor
in about 15 percent of
bicycle/motor vehicle
crashes. Motorists enter-
ing and leaving road-
ways at intersections
and driveways do not
expect traffic to ap-
proach from the wrong
direction. (These laws

are found in Section
316.081. ES.)
2. Bicyclists may not
wear a headset, head-
phone or other listening
device (Section 316.304.
ES.)
3. Running a stop sign
or signal, riding against
traffic, etc., is a mov-
ing violation. (Section
318.18.ES.)
4. Bicycle riders under
16 must wear a bicycle
helmet. Head injuries
account for about one-
third of hospital emer-
gency room visits for
bicycle-related injuries.
At least one hand must
be kept on the handle-
bars while riding. (Sec-
tion 316.2065 ES.)
These are just a few
of the laws that pertain
to bicycling in Florida.
I think if these few were
enforced, we would
all be safer. They are
common-sense laws.
I would say we should
educate bicyclists as
well as motorists. Then
ticket the violators
before someone gets
killed.
Take a few minutes
before you go out for
your next ride to fa-
miliarize yourself with
the laws of the state of
Florida. Google Florida
state bicycle laws. It
may save your life or
that of someone you
love.

Get it done already

Editor:
First, we want to thank
Venice City Council
members for unani-
mously voting on Nov. 9
for the Venice Bypass to
be widened. Then the
county commissioners
voted to wait a month
for a study to prove


feasibility. It didn't take
the county commission-
ers this long to study 301
in Sarasota. I think if this
road were in the city of
Sarasota, the time would
be now.
I am also reading
and listening to a lot of
opinions on the widen-
ing of the bypass. Lots
of talk from people who
weren't ever at a meeting
- everyone is an expert.
My wife and I were there
for the almost four-hour
meeting.
Ted Koszarski wrote
a guest column on the
bypass. He has a right to
his opinion, but I don't
agree with him. First, the
point of that road is to
move people from point
A to point B without a
lot of stop-and-go traffic.
Even with six lanes, a
sidewalk/bike path can
still be installed.
A lot of money has
been spent on studies.
The folks with property
on the east side of the
road have heard all this
for more than 14 years.
It has been discussed
and studied to death
and yet nothing has
happened. We have
property on the east
side that has been for
sale for 10 years and we
can't move it because of
the road situation.

Hoping the dogs return

Editor:
I was sorry to see the
dogs from M&M Rescue
taken away. I volun-
teered as a dog walker
and found the staff tak-
ing care of the dogs very
caring.
The rescue took dogs
from the Miami pound
that were to be eutha-
nized; got them up to


date with shots; got
meds for them if they
were ill; socialized and
had them walked; and
adopted them out when
they were ready. More
than 200 dogs were
adopted before it was
closed.
As usual, the animals
are now at the mercy
of the people who took
them, with no voice of
their own. Such a sad
and unnecessary situa-
tion. Luckily,the store is
still open and perhaps
the dogs will return.

Pizza vs. Social Security

Editor:
President Obama
recently had us in tears
over a family that might
have to forgo its weekly
pizza treat if the payroll
tax cut were not ex-
tended for another two
months. I was under
the impression that the
payroll tax was used to
fund the Social Security
system. This caused me
to wonder whether a
family pizza party was
more important than
assuring that retirees
who depend on their
Social Security checks
continue to receive that
money, which in many
cases provides for their
basic needs.
If we totally dismiss
the Social Security
issue, another really
strange thing is that
President Obama was
able to convince people
that it was better to
get a tax break for two
months than for an
entire year.
He is really good at
what he does.

GIRLS SOCCER


Venice's unbeaten streak reaches 10


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

The 17-day layoff between
matches didn't affect Venice's
offense.
The Lady Indians scored two
goals in the first five minutes,
then couldn't find the back of
the net the rest of the way in
their 2-1 victory over North Port
on Monday night at Venice's
Powell-Davis Stadium.
"It was a nondistrict game
and we came away with a win,"
said Venice coach Gary Bolyard.
"Nice to get warmup in as
we have two district matches
coming up."
The win runs the Lady Indi-
ans' unbeaten streak to 10 con-
secutive matches. Venice hasn't
lost a match since Nov. 11, a 3-2
loss to Naples Gulf Coast. Since
then, Venice has won eight of 10
matches, with two ties.
Venice controlled the entire
match by winning the 50-50
balls and used its precision pass-
ing to maintain possession.
The Lady Indians (11-2-2)
went ahead quickly on a goal in
the second minute by junior Yas-
min Velez, who raced down the
right sideline and got behind the
North Port defense. Her right-
footed shot glanced off the near
post and slipped into the far
upper corner of the net for her
seventh goal of the season.
In the fourth minute, Venice's
Brittney Reed nearly scored off
a corner kick but the ball was
punched over the crossbar by
North Port goalie Sierra Jennings.
In the fifth minute, Venice

grabbed a 2-0 cushion as Reed
crossed the ball to Erin Mul-
vaney in the middle of the field.
She settled it and left-footed it
into the far corner. It was her
first goal of the season.
"It's finding that one player
who is going to be hungry for
goals," said Bolyard. "That is
what we need to find is that one
player who is going to stand out
and want to

the second half, took advantage
of a defensive miscue to cut into
Venice's lead.
The Lady Bobcats worked the
ball down the left sideline and
it got past Venice's defense to
Jenna Pacyna, who found Kayla
McDermott one-on-one with
Venice keeper Marlee Tyde.
McDermott's shot hit the back of
the net in the 19th minute.
The only things preventing the
Lady Indians from scoring were
the play of Sierra Jennings and
the crossbar and post.
Venice pounded Jennings with
shot after shot but she was up to
the task.
In the first half, the Lady


Indians had 17 shots and Jen-
nings, using her athleticism and
instinct for the ball, made 12
saves.
Venice nearly scored in the
36th minute but Kelly White's
shot ricocheted off the crossbar
on a point-blank attempt.
"I couldn't even tell you how
many crossbars or posts we hit,"
said Bolyard. "It was comical,
almost. Their goalie made some
great saves too. Give her credit
as she made some unbelievable
saves."
In the 40th minute, Jennings
made a kick save on a shot by
Reed. In the 42nd minute, a shot
by Reed pounded off the cross-
bar on a wide open shot as Jen-
nings was pulled out of the goal.
On the rebound, Mulvaney's
shot hit off the post.
In the final 10 minutes, Venice
hit the crossbar again and Jen-
nings dove to make two saves and
keep Venice off the scoreboard.
Venice outshot North Port,
15-4 in the second half, and Jen-
nings had five saves in the half.
"We came out fast but couldn't
put one in the rest of the way,"
said Bolyard.
This was Venice's first match
since Dec. 15 after taking two
weeks off during the holiday
break.
The Lady Indians were also
missing Catie Vare, Hannah
Clark and Maggie Daut, who
were all out sick.
"We had to move some players
around so it was not like our
normal lineup," said Bolyard.
Venice will honor its seven
seniors on Senior Night as the
Lady Indians host Sarasota
Wednesday in a Class 4A-Dis-
trict 11 match. The Lady Indians
conclude their district with
a match at Manatee High on
Friday.

ER Extra for


2012 Emergencies.

We hear "Have a healthy, safe New Year" frequently at this
time every year. But according to the National Center for
Health Statistics, one in every five persons will visit the
emergency room this year. That statistic increases to one
in every four people 75 years and older.
Getting to the ER and getting treated fast is the key
to a more successful outcome. And ER Extra' is a new
approach to the emergency room experience designed to
be the fastest and best emergency care.

Get to ER Extra fast.
The ER Extra system gives you three quick ways to get
instant access to ER wait times, detailed directions to our
locations and even travel times to get there.
For online access: visit VeniceRegional.com
For iPhone access: download the ER Extra app at the
Apple App Store (also available for other smartphones).
Text your zip code to ERTIME (378463) and you'll
receive the ER wait time for the ER Extra location
near you.

The ER Extra difference at Venice Regional Medical Center.
When you enter an ER Extra emergency room, your
name enters the system at the registration desk. The
computerized tracking system records your every second
and the data is constantly reviewed by your treatment
team to streamline and speed up your care. So you see a
member of the clinical team sooner, and treatment begins
quicker. Board-certified doctors and a highly trained staff
are by your side throughout your visit to explain your
diagnosis, how you'll be treated and to discuss any follow
up care needed.
The results? Extra fast, Extra easy, Extra great emergency care.
Venice Regional Medical Center is the community's
exclusive provider of ER Extra. For online access, visit

Chest Pain Center

Accreditation means
better patient outcomes.

Heart attacks are the leading cause
of deaths in the U.S., with 600,000
people dying annually of heart disease.
If you find yourself as one of the more
than five million Americans who visit
hospitals each year with chest pain,
choosing the right hospital could be a
life-saving decision.
The goal of the Society of Chest
Pain Centers (SCPC) is to reduce
the mortality rate of patients by not
only teaching the public to recognize
and react to the early symptoms of
a possible heart attack, but to also
reduce the time that it takes to receive
treatment and to increase the accuracy
and effectiveness of treatment.
Hospitals must meet the SCPC
rigorous evaluation criteria for fast
and highest quality treatment to be
designated an accredited Chest Pain
Center, which can mean the difference
between life, death or disability for a
patient with chest pain.
Congratulations toVenice Regional
Medical Center which received full
Chest Pain Center accreditation
from the SCPC in December 2011.

By DEIRDRE CALLANAN
CORRESPONDENT

BAM!
At the Pit behind the Fish
Camp, the poker folks fiddled
chips, riffled cards. Someone
passed sugar cane 'shine; one
small, small sip would do. Sun
and smoke sliced Rocket's
compact frame as he chewed
the fat with Buzz, waited his
turn at horseshoes.
His 5-foot-5-inch frame,
150 pounds, packed like a
barracuda, had been useful
during his cannon act for the
Ringling Bros. and Barnum &
Bailey Circus. One imagined
such focused stillness, that
particular waiting. Yet he spoke
in rapid-fire phrases while
his staccato gestures demon-
strated those Ringling years.
"You get in, stand on the
block, tighten your a--, lock
your head into your collar-
bone, tighten your fists away
from your face." He stretched
his mangrove-root arms.
"There's a metal box with a
bicycle seat built in the cap-
sule, welded to the ground to
keep you from buckling when
the thing goes off, a fuse to an
electric match. A real big fire-
cracker." The writer tightened
her grip on her pen.
"First, you have to get out of
the (expletive) cannon. Five,
four, three, two, one: BAM.
Baby powder and smoke.
Thirty-five seconds, you're a
slingshot ball, you're a man."
He straightened his slim
frame, a slit vanilla bean of
wizened skin.
"You wanna land like this:
Keep your body stiff. Soon
as you see the net, tuck your
head, you want the back of
your head to hit the net."
His tangled curls draped
forward as he bent.
"The whole time, keep
your a-- tight and your heels
pointed and above your
head. They didn't want you
to look like a wounded duck.
They wanted you to look like
Superman."
In California, Rocket had
herded goats on San Clemente
Island and, later, had custom-
ized vans. In the winter of
1980, he hitchhiked to Venice,
looking for work. He fell in love
with the area, played volleyball
on Venice Beach. He took a
job putting in aluminum boat
docks, lived near Ringling's
winter quarters.
"I'd never seen a circus,
never been to a circus. I seen
their train come through, not
more than 20 feet from me.
There were elephants, trunks
sticking out of their cars,
showgirls, clowns. I said, That's
it, man. I'm gonna find a way
to join the circus.
"The Myakka Bowling Alley
was the circus bar when they
were in town. I met a guy, said
they were hiring riggers. I had
no idea what a rigger did. Guy
said to tell them I was a rigger.
They gave me a rope with a
hook on it, pointed, said, 'Go
up to that right there.' I did rig-
ging for Cindy Dodge (a well-
known 1980s trapeze artist).
I ended up best rigger at that
time. Head rigger."
Around 1985, after a stint
running the sound board, he

situated midway was the Pie
Car, for dining. The next cars
carried the livestock. These
were followed in the rear by
flat cars bearing equipment.
Each season, the Blue Unit
alternated states with the Red
Unit. The entire show changed
every two years. Rocket
explained,
"So, say you were going to
the circus in Muncie, Ind.;
you'd get a different show each
year."
While Rocket was in Japan
with Ringling in 1990, Michael
Sarna, a professional stunt
man, promised Ringling he
could be the first human ball of
fire. They welded an extra foot
onto the cannon and changed
the seat to accommodate
Sarna's size. Sarna never did
become that ball of fire, but
Rocket resigned. Ringling gave
him a ticket back to Florida.
"I've been here ever since,"
he said.
Post-Ringling, his first job
was cleaning the Osprey
Holiday Inn (Bentley's Resort
Hotel today). After a week,
the manager asked if he'd like
to run the front desk. He had
observed and appreciated the
way Rocket greeted the guests.
Rocket admitted he didn't
know anything about running
a hotel desk.
"He took me to Sears,
bought me clothes, sent me to
school, Holidesk. I learned it,
ended up front desk assistant
manager. When the owner Joe
Duncan left, that ended my
career as hotel clerk. I grew
my long hair and beard, went
into construction, been in ever
since."
In his spare time, for the past
decade he crafted ornaments
from one-liter plastic bottles,
a technique he adapted from
a friend of his mother's. The
butterflies and fish he made
in part required a chop saw,
box cutter and spray paint.
The whimsical, colorful results
found homes with many Fish
N Camp visitors.
Rocket paused above the
channel as he described his
introduction to the North Jetty
Fish Camp.
"Around 1991,1 I went to the
South Jetty. I seen over here
all these people drinking' and
havin' a good time."
He pointed toward the South
Jetty.
"I jumped in right there,
swam straight across."
Asked if his money got wet,
he shrugged, "Didn't have any."
Soon after that channel
swim, the man known simply
1 as Rocket to all at the Fish
Camp met "Donny and Steve
e and all the fishermen.
"I'm here pretty much every
evening. I hang around with
everybody. I'll never go back to
California."
t What about someplace else in
Florida? His brown eyes shone.
"This is it. This is the spot.
Paradise by the sea."


The story is from Deirdre Cal-
lanan's manuscript, "Beauty,
Sorrow and a ngge'di Heart: A
History of the North Jetty Fish
Camp." She lives in Nokomis
and Cape Cod. Her stories will
resume on alternate Saturdays
beginning Jan. 14.

Ringling's famed, one-of-a-kind double-cannon, at this time in the 1980s directed by Rocket. Photo was taken in the

was made assistant purchas-
ing agent, becoming a staffer
with a company car and credit
cards. Ringling realized that
wasn't enough, so they added
another job.
"You're gonna be in charge
of the cannon: clean it, cover
it, drive it to the audience, fire
'em off."
For a time, he shot two
men out of a double-barreled
cannon.
"It was the only one ever.


Rocket near the Horseshoe Pit, generally called simply the Pit, behind the
North Jetty Fish Camp.


Ringling built it."
Then, it was his turn.
"When one of the men left
to do props in Hollywood, they
asked if I wanted to do it. I
went to wardrobe, got suited
up, started practicing."
First, they shot out a
dummy. Calculating the dead
weight factor, this sandbag was
always 90 pounds less than the
weight of whomever was going
to be shot out. In Rocket's case,
the bag weighed 60 pounds.
Each of the three rings sup-
ported big overhead frame-
works for the aerial acts and
lights. The person fired from
the cannon would need to clear
this huge equipment. Explained
Rocket, "However high the tent,
that's the arc for the cannon.
The higher the tent, the greater
the distance (he was propelled).
They pushed it."
Once the dummy test was
completed, Rocket was loaded
in.
"They drove the cannon
right up to the net, spit me up
a few times. As I got comfort-
able, they backed it up, farther
and farther and farther away.
I gave up a staff position to do


it. I actually wanted to do it
basically to be a star."
That new star, although
named Curtis Randall Weber
at his birth June 7, 1958, was
dubbed Rocket Randy at
Ringling.
Rocket Randy described the
device.
"All it is is a big slingshot,
24 rubber bands anchored at
the capsule, going 'round the
pulley." Because only some
buildings were air-conditioned
and rubber reacts to tem-
perature, the crew adjusted the
bands to ensure the cannon's
precision. A red marker on the
net indicated the landing spot.
There was such logical data,
then there was the physical act
itself. Rocket remembered ...
"The first time was a rush,
scary adrenaline. My whole
body was shaking uncontrol-
lably. The more I did it, I got
more comfortable with it. It
wasn't really that bad. It was
nothing. "
He defined the circus's
route as extreme one hard
year, one West Coast year. The
schedule was a six-pack, three
Saturday shows and three
Sunday. Sometimes three mor
shows were added for Friday,
a nine-pack. There were also
highlights outside the tent.
Rocket loved spending
spare time with the horses. On
Halloween, the clowns cre-
ated a haunted house, staged
skits in their train rooms. He
smiled, "Axel Gautier called his
elephants '21 Naked Ladies.'"
Ringling carved two distinct
show trails across the conti-
nent, the Red and Blue units.
On Rocket's Blue Unit, the
vestibules were blue. His train
room, a cozy 5 feet by 8 feet,
had a huge picture window.

Benefit walk-a-thon planned


FROM UNITED WAY


Teams are needed to
begin forming for the
United Way of South
Sarasota's Walk-A-Thon
Feb. 25. The walk will
be at Centennial Park
gazebo in downtown Ven-
ice. Registration will be
at 8:30 a.m. and the walk
will begin at 9 a.m.
It's time to start recruit-
ing teams, according to
Steve Brett, executive
director.
In a recently released


announcement, Brett
said your team can
designate 100 percent
of the money raised to
go directly to UWSSC
to fund 30 local social
service agencies or teams
can give 50 percent
to United Way and 50
percent to your church,
school club or "cause."
Your gift will touch,
change and improve lives
in your community.

tion, call Esther Bird,

VENUE CLIENTS
The Gondolier will soon be changing

We will print a maximum of four
lines per event at no cost to the event
submitter. All events must be entered
through www.venicegondolier.com.
(Click on Community Calendar in the
left column, then Submit Event.) If you
do not have the ability to enter your
events via our website, we can type
them in on your behalf at the rate of $5
per event; this fee does not guarantee
your event will be printed in the
newspaper.
You may purchase additional space
for $10 per day, per event, per edition.
Simply choose Paid Listing on the
Submit Event page on the website. All
paid listings will run in the location
designated for the event type.
We will only be allowing one
submission per event, per day. If your
event runs for more than one day,
you will need to complete a separate
submission form for each day. Multiple
submissions of the same event for the
same date may result in all the related
events being removed.
We reserve the right to exclude any
submitted event that does not meet
our specifications or that requires
excessive editing. There is no express or
implied guarantee that any free listing

SOLUTION TO TODAY'S
CLASSIFIED CROSSWORD


I GOREN BRIDGE
WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

AAJ 108543 Void AKJ 10676

The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
14 Pass 1NT Pass
9
What do you bid now?

A Yes we know you might have a
slam in diamonds but to jump shift to
three diamonds is more likely to
cause havoc than simplify life. Bid
what you think you can make. Bid
four spades.

Q 2 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
AKJ874QA70 AKQ94J5

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

A You have a good hand, but it
might be a misfit, so don't get
overexcited a jump to three
diamonds is robbing yourself of
space you might need later. Partrner's
two-over-one response is forcing and
promises another bid, so just bid two
diamonds to see what develops.

Q 3 North-South vulnerable, as
South you hold:
AQ 106? A JO K Q J 10736 A 5

The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
10 14 1NT Pass
9
What do you bid now?

A You have a very good hand but it
is worth only 7-plus tricks, and
partner has done nothing to suggest
that his hand will produce five. Bid
three no trump. That should be easy
going.

Q 4 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:


4874 4965~ AKQ6546 82

Partner opens the bidding with one
no trump. What do you respond?

A Barring a bad break, you are
bringing partner five tricks. Don't try
anything fancy. Jump to three no
trump and hope your opponents can't
run five fast tricks.

Q 5 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

483 Q820 KQ 76346 A106


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
12 Pass 20
3K Pass ?
What action do you take?


WEST
Pass


A Your queen of hearts is worth
more than its 2-count, but you have
already taken it into account with
your two-over-one response. Just
raise to four hearts. Any move must
come from partner.

Q 6 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

4AK7K28430 AQ46A10873


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
1NT Pass 44
9
What do you bid now?


EAST
Pass


A Yes, we can think of many hands
where you will be laydown for 12
tricks. However, we can think of
even more where you have no play
whatsoever. Don't throw good
money after bad. Pass!

week is Stacy Pinkerton.
This nice lady spends her life
dedicated to her family and
helping others. She works on
fundraisers for the Loveland
Center. She is a longtime vol-
unteer for the Loveland Follies.
She was also a Troupe In The

leadership in their fundraising
campaigns.
She is a great wife and mother
who encourages everyone to

her musical dreams. She is kind

Is there such a thing

as male menopause?


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
Here's one I bet you don't
see often. I am a male,
62, and recently have
been getting night sweats,
chills, sleeplessness
and low-grade fevers. I
read about testosterone
supplementation, which
I will not do. I am curious
about male menopause. I
have led a very active and
physical life in a profes-
sional sport. Additionally,
I had a vasectomy when
I was 22. I am looking
for a dietary, vitamin or
homeopathic remedy for
relief. D.C.
ANSWER: Men don't
experience the sudden
drop-off in testosterone
production like women
do in estrogen produc-
tion at the time of their
menopause. Further,
male sperm production
continues while women's
egg production stops at
menopause. It is true that
testosterone production
lessens with age. Around
age 40, its production
decreases by 1 percent
per year.
However, unlike
women, relatively few
men suffer any symptoms
from this diminished
production. Muscles do
shrink with less testoster-
one around, and bones
lose their strength. Some-
times erectile dysfunction
is mentioned as a sign of
testosterone deficiency.
If demonstrably low
levels of testosterone
are shown and men are
having problems from
muscle weakness or
sexual performance,
replacement therapy is a
possible antidote.
I understand that you
don't want to take tes-
tosterone. I don't think it
would help you or rid you
of your complaints. Night
sweats, chills, sleepless-
ness and low-grade fever
are not signs of a lack
of testosterone. Those
things can be signs of
more serious conditions,
like hidden infections
and undetected cancers.
You should submit to a
thorough examination by
your doctor. You should
not try to self-medicate
with vitamins, dietary
changes or homeopathic
remedies. You have to
find out exactly what's
going on. Your vasectomy
has nothing to do with
any of your symptoms.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I am 59 and have erec-
tile dysfunction. Is there
another name for this
"menopause"? Does it
go away on its own? Pills
from a vitamin store help


Dr. Donohue

Donohue at -

Orlando,
FL 32853-64 75
me have an erection. -
J.A.
ANSWER: Those who
believe in a male meno-
pause sometimes call it
andropause or viropause.
"Andro" is a Greek word
for man; "vir," a Latin
word for it.
Erectile dysfunction
comes from many dif-
ferent and unrelated
conditions. Rarely is it the
sole sign of testosterone
lack. Thyroid disorders,
plugging of arteries to the
genitals, diabetes, depres-
sion, high blood pres-
sure, high blood pressure
medicines and obesity
are the more common
reasons for the inability
to have an erection. ED
doesn't usually go away
on its own.
Viagra, Levitra and Cia-
lis have been revolution-
ary treatments for ED.
Even though your prob-
lem no longer is a con-
cern, you ought to men-
tion it to your doctor. The
doctor can check you for
artery plugging, which, if
it exists in genital arteries,
also could exist in heart
arteries.
What is the name of
the pill you're taking? You
have all male readers and
me interested.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I misplaced an article you
wrote about eye pupil
inequality. Will you please
repeat it? D.A.
ANSWER: I wrote about
Adie's pupil, when one
pupil is larger than the
other. It usually happens
to healthy young women.
Infections, including
syphilis and other condi-
tions, cause the inequal-
ity, but they are in the
minority.
Homer's syndrome is
another cause of differ-
ence in pupil size. Not
only is one pupil smaller
than the other, but facial
sweating on the side of
the smaller pupil stops.
There's a slight drooping
of the eyelid over the eye
with the smaller pupil.
Most cases of Horner's
syndrome are idiopathic,
meaning they have no
discernible cause. One
cause of this syndrome is
lung cancer. Strokes can
cause it, too.

The basics of buckeyes


Dear Readers: Which of
the following is true about
the buckeyenut?
The name is derived
from its resemblance to
the eye of a male deer.
The nuts are poisonous.
They are considered a
good-luck charm.
Ohio is called the
"Buckeye State," and the
nut is the Ohio State Uni-
versity mascot.
If you guessed "Aye" to
all the ayes have it!
This chestnut-brown
seed has a lighter-colored
circular "eye" in the
middle, looking like the
eye of a buck.
Slightly poisonous, they
are edible once heated
and leached, but also can
be roasted, peeled and
then mashed.
Many carry these nuts
in their pockets because
they believe them to be a
good-luck charm.
Do you have a buckeye
recipe or story? Please

Egg safety
Dear Heloise: How long

Would it be safe to make
them on a Tuesday night
for serving on Thursday?
- Nancy J., via email
Yes, make them and
serve them! The U.S. De-
partment of Agriculture
recommends that deviled
eggs and egg salad be
eaten within three to


Hints from Heloise

four days of making. Just
keep them stored in the
refrigerator until ready to
use. However, they won't
last that long in most
households!
Whatever type of egg
you set out for a meal,
remember to discard the
eggs if they have been
at room temperature for
longer than two hours.
- Heloise

Storing bread
Dear Heloise: Is it bet-
ter to keep bread in the
refrigerator or keep it at
room temperature, and
why? J.R. in Falling
Waters, W.Va.
Manufacturers recom-
mend that bread be stored
at room temperature for
best quality and to main-
tain its freshness. Placing
bread in the refrigerator
actually can make the
bread go stale faster.
However, you can
freeze bread for three to
six months. Just be sure
to wrap it in the proper
packaging, or double-bag
for freezer storage and
then thaw at room
temperature. Heloise

Sister's affair with boss

costs boyfriend his job
DEAR ABBY: My
long-distance boyfriend,
"Wayne," moved here two
years ago to take a job
working for my twin sister '
"Kim's" mentor. After five
months on the job, Wayne -
was terminated and was


replaced by my sister!
To say there are hurt feel-
ings is an understatement.
Wayne and I were
unaware that Kim had
been having an affair with
this much-older married
father of two. He has now
left his wife and kids and
is living with my sister.
Kim is enjoying her job as
his assistant and reap-
ing all the benefits of his
long-established business.
I'm devastated by the
betrayal. It frustrates me
that after months of de-
ception, my twin is ben-
efitting from a massive
indiscretion that ended a
marriage and destroyed
a family. We were always
close, but I don't want
to include her lover in
any upcoming events in
my life. She says they're
a "package deal." How
do I move past this or
should I? DECEIVED
BY MY EVIL TWIN
DEAR DECEIVED: I'm
not sure what "upcoming
events in your life" you're
referring to, but if they
include Wayne, his feel-
ings should also be taken
into consideration. How
angry and resentful will
he feel if he's forced to in-
teract with the man who
fired him so he could be
replaced by your sister?
I can't decide for you
how you will work this out,
but I will offer this advice:
For the present, make no
hard and fast decisions.
This could play out in any
number of ways. Her boss
could marry her, or he
could return to his wife
and family. Wait and see
what the future brings. It's
often full of surprises.
DEAR ABBY: I am a
single adult female. I have
a neighbor and friend I'll
call Kurt. He has been ter-
rific to me. He has given
me things, taken me out a
few times and seems very
caring. I enjoy the time
we spend together and I
have developed romantic


Dear Abby

feelings for him. My prob-
lem is Kurt is gay.
I know I can't have the
kind of relationship with
him that I'd like to. Once,
we spent the whole day
together and I spent the
whole time wishing it had
been a real date. It seems
like whenever we go out
together I don't know how
to handle the situation.
Because he's a neighbor, I
run into him a lot. I could
use some advice on this.
- SO NEAR AND YET SO
FAR IN TEXAS
DEAR NEAR AND FAR:
You and Kurt appear to
be compatible on many
levels, but you must accept
that as wonderful a person
as he is he cannot give
you the romantic love
you're looking for. He isn't
"wired" that way. Wish-
ing, hoping and dreaming
won't change that but it
WILL waste your time and
prevent you from looking
for eligible men.
You need to put the
brakes on this friendship
until you have regained
your balance and/or
have met someone else.
And tell Kurt why, so his
feelings won't be hurt. I'm
betting it won't be the first
time he's heard it.
DEAR ABBY: Is a grand-
mother being disrespect-
ful when she purposely
continues to misspell her
12-year-old grandson's
name on cards and gifts?
- HIS NAME IS JOE!
DEAR H.N.I.J.!: Not
knowing the grandmoth-
er, I can't say for certain.
She may be letting you
know she's disappointed
you didn't name the boy
after his grandfather
"Morris." She could also
be illiterate or somewhat
demented, but I'm betting
she's letting you know
she's not happy with the
name you chose.


"In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood
and cried, saying, if any man thirst, let him come unto
me, and drink."-John 7:37.
Only Christ knows the real longing of every life, and
He alone can fill it. Why wander in the wilderness
ignoring His invitation? "Come unto me ... I will give
you rest."

The bidding:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
I1 Pass 24 Pass
21 Pass 4y Pass
Pass Pass Pass

Opening lead: Ten of 4,

This deal is from the Gold Cup
final, Britain's premier team event. In
both rooms the final contract was


four hearts. In the other room, the
opening lead was a diamond and,
after the queen of diamonds won,
careful play by declarer landed the
contract
Here, declarer won the lead in hand
and led a heart to the jack, which
won.
Declarer continued with the ace
and discovered the bad break. The
contract can still be made. Declarer
must cash the king of clubs and exit
with a trump. West can take his other
trump but is then endplayed. Try it.
Instead, declarer cashed both
dummy's top clubs, discarding a dia-
mond from hand. West ruffed the
queen with his remaining trump win-
ner and exited safely with a diamond.
That stranded declarer with two
spade losers to go along with the two
trump losers.

Have a

dramatic new year
ot on the heels of the Asolo's successful run of "My Fair
Lady" comes the beginning of the rep company's season
with an even older "golden oldie," George S. Kaufman and
Moss Hart's "Once in a Lifetime."
This one is so old, even I do not know the show. It supposedly
provided some inspiration for the 1950s era movie musical, "Singin'
In the Rain."That show has become a favorite on community theater
stages. Both The Players in Sarasota and Venice Theatre had fine
productions in recent years.
"Once in a Lifetime" opens Friday in the Mertz at the FSU Center
for the Performing Arts where it will play in repertory through
Feb. 29. Previews begin tonight at 8 p.m. Playing in rep with this on
will be "God of Carnage," which opens Jan. 13 and "Yentle" which
opens Jan. 20. Longtime Asolo Rep players David Breitbarth,
James Clark and Breitbarth's wife Kate Hampton are in the first two.
"Yentle" will feature former Asolo artistic director Howard Millman
in several roles as well as his wife and longtime Asolo company
member Carolyn Michel plus several actors new to the company.

In Venice, the season seemed to just continue from last year
with a great summer stock production of "Jesus Christ Superstar"
and then on to "You're A Good man Charlie Brown,";"Big River" and
others leading up to several holiday offerings leading up to the next
mainstage musical, Smokey Joe's Cafe" which opens Tuesday. In
the Pinkerton, "Almost Maine" opens tomorrow. Fore tickets, call

'YENTL,' Jan.20 April 26. In 19th

pursuing her dreams is to disguise herself
as a boy in order to learn. But when she
falls in love, she must decide whether or
not to reveal the truth. For everyone who
has wanted to do something and was told
they couldn't, and for everyone who has
loved the wrong person for the right rea-
son, this beautifully written play with mu-
sic resonates with pure magic.

Legacy of murder and marriages can be found at Pioneer Park


Legacy of murder and marriages can be found at Pioneer Park


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Pioneer Park in Sarasota has two fine
examples of what a small group of people
can do to preserve history The circa
1901 Crocker Church and the Bidwell-Wood
home that dates to 1882.
The two buildings have been moved several
times since they were first built by early pioneers.
Built for Alfred and Mary Bidwell at 849 Florida
Ave., the Bidwell-Wood House was involved in a
planned murder almost before the paint was dry
on the siding of the wooden structure.
It was where Alfred and his neighbors plotted
to murder another neighbor, Charles E. Albee,
Sarasota's first postmaster. On Dec. 27, 1884,
Albee was shot in front of Alfred's store.
The investigation uncovered the conspiracy,
identifying the group as a secret society called
the Sara Sota Vigilance Committee. Its leader,
Bidwell, was convicted and sentenced to death
but later released after a commutation of his
original sentence.
Annie and Luke Wood bought the house in
1895 and it remained in the Wood family until
1966. By 1977 it had been acquired by the His-
torical Society.
Peter Crocker, for whom the church was
named, came to Sara Sota in 1873 from New York
state via Key West where he was a lighthouse
keeper for a time. He and his wife purchased land
southwest of Bay and Ree Ridge roads. He was
a trustee for the Phillippi School, postmaster of
the Crocker Post Office and, in 1901 established
what became the Crocker Memorial Church. In
the beginning it was called the St. John's Chapel
Church although nearly always referred to as
"Crocker's Church" according to historians. The
cemetery associated with the church remains
near the northeast corner of Bee Ridge Road and
U.S.41.
The church building was moved for the first
time in 1927, ending up on Old Bradenton Road
as the Bay Haven Baptist Church. Members of the
congregation dismantled the building from its first
site and re-assembled it at the new site. When
rebuilt, it was 6 inches shorter and narrower, ac-
cording to information from the historical society.
A baptistry was added in 1935 and other changes
were made in the next few years. Eventually a
steeple with belfry and spire was added as well
as wide porch and steps..
It was recognized as being historically
significant in 1984 by the Historic Preservation
Board of the City of Sarasota for its workmanship
and materials as well as for the role


it and especially Crocker played in area history
Veronica Morgan had the building moved to her
property on Florida Avenue when the congrega-
tion began plans to replace the building with
something new and larger. She rented it out and
then sold the property in 1995 when it served
again as a church for a time.
When the area was rezoned in 2004 to
make way for "affordable housing," the historical
society petitioned Sarasota city commissioners
to save both the church and the Bidwell-Wood
House and set out to find a site for the two
structures.
In 2006, the city offered financial help toward
the moving expense and also approved the allo-
cation of space for the two buildings at city-owned
Pioneer Park. The buildings were moved on Oct.
17 that year.
Restoration work began and continues to this
day. A ramp was built that connects and makes
both buildings, a new gift shop and restrooms
accessible to all visitors. Volunteers have created
brick paths, added landscaping and continue to
care for and enhance the grounds even as they
continue to assist with restoration work on both
buildings.
The historical society uses the historic house
as its headquarters and the church is often
leased for weddings as well as for various public
and private events.
The Crocker Church & Bidwell-Wood House are
located at 1260 12th St. Pioneer Park, Sarasota.

membership or to inquire about making a tax-
deductible donation to the site, which has

Lemon Bay Tours:



Discoveries



on the water


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
On the beautiful waters of Lemon Bay, an
education is taking place.
Bruce LaMotte and his company
Lemon Bay Tours are kicking the typical boat
tour up a notch by mixing in a little information.
Whether it's discovering more about the wildlife
you are seeing or learning about the history of
the area you are in, it's all covered on the tour.
"Our tours are a combination of things," said
LaMotte. "We have different people every day.
Whatever their interests are, we try to shape the
tours for that.":The opportunities to view nature
in this area are abundant, and there is no better
example of that than on Lemon Bay. Dolphins,
bald eagles, hawks, egrets, pelicans, osprey,
manatees and other marine life and birds are
regularly sighted on LaMotte's tours.
Years ago, LaMotte used to spot sea life of a
different type. "I've been a licensed captain for
over 25 years," he said. "I did similar whale watch-
ing tours back in Bar Harbor, Maine." In the '70s,

A dolphin that was spotted during a Lemon Bay
Tour.

LaMotte was working on Florida's east coast
when he visited what would one day become his
home. "I first saw Englewood in 1973," he said. "I
came over here on a day off and fell in love with
this area. We bought our first home here in the
'80s."
Since his move to southwest Florida, he has
discovered that there is quite a bit of history
here. "I've done a lot of research on the history of
Englewood," he said, "about the settlers and why
they settled here and did what they did."When
you take a tour with LaMotte, if you ask, you will

be beneficiary of his years of investigation and
exploration of the area.
He is a wealth of information and anecdotes,
such as the one he tells about an early settler
who bought one of the barrier islands. The settler
found that he loved the island life, but that one
thing was missing-meat. So he rounded up 400
razorback hogs and brought them to the island
for his family. "We touch on history if people
are into it," said LaMotte. "I like to interject some
things in there."
All boat tours are conducted on The Bay
Watch, a Coast Guard-certified, 49 passenger


catamaran, and there are several options from
which to choose: Lunch, Sunset, Party, Nature
or Custom cruises. LaMotte stresses that the
tours are different every time he goes out. "Right
now the eagles are nesting, and we'll see a lot of
them," he said. "It takes about 16 weeks for the
babies to get out of the nest, and then we'll see
them on the tour."
For more information or to book a tour, contact
Lemon Bay Tours at 941-475-3168 or online at

Lemon Bay Tours is located at 1450 Beach
Road, Englewood.

world's most beloved ballet, "Swan Lake," to
glorious life for one performance at 7:30 p.m.

Hailed by the "NewYork Times" as "full of
enchantment," this company of distinguished
dancers has showcased the unparalleled art of
Russian ballet to countries throughout the world.
The classic "Swan Lake" has charmed audi-
ences since its St. Petersburg premiere in 1895


and is considered the embodiment of "Russian
Ballet." Set to Tchaikovsky's magnificent score,
with choreography by M. Petipa and L. Ivanov, the
ballet tells the timeless story of a young prince
named Siegfried who falls in love with Odette, a
princess who takes human form at night but each
morning is turned into a swan by the evil sorcerer
Von Rothbart. In this consummate tale of love
conquering all, the spell may only be broken if a
prince pledges eternal fidelity to her.

columnist/humorist, Jonathan Richard
Cring and artist/musician Janet Clazzy, during
their "2012: Six Words Tour" at 6:30 p.m. Friday.
The show includes comedic and inspirational
essays from Cring's national daily column at
www.jonathots.com, with original musical tunes
played by Clazzy on the oboe and WX-5 Wind

Kringle's Tales ... 26 Stories 'Til Christmas."
"We take some time to bring you music, humor
fresh insights into life in these United States
and the ways of being human," Cring shares.
"The program is a non-stop, inter-generational
explosion, helping us to remember who we are
and why we would like to do that better. We have
dubbed it'2012: The Six Words Tour: No one's
better than anyone else.'"

Lemon Bay High School Performing Arts Series begins Thursday


BY CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The Lemon Bay High School Performing
Arts Series begins Thursday.
Tenor Fernando Varela begins the
season with a repertoire of inspirational songs
including "How Great Thou Art;" songs from
musical theater including "Maria" from West Side
Story; and love songs including "The Way you
Look Tonight." He'll also sing some of his original
compositions including "Mi Maravillosa" and "You
are all that I see."
Varela grew up in San Juan, Puerto Rico
where, at three years of age, he entertained his
family and friends by singing Michael Jackson
tunes. The family relocated to Central Florida
when Fernando was 8 years old, but he did not
become fascinated with classical music until
his senior year at Bishop Moore High School in
Orlando. After high school Fernando auditioned


and was accepted to perform with the Central
Florida Lyric Opera. At the Licia Albanse/Puc-
cini Foundation International Vocal Competition
in Orlando, voice teacher and Opera Legend
Licia Albanese said, "At 20-years-old Fernando
Varela is better than Pavarotti was at that age."
During the next five years he performed in over
16 staged operas and hundreds of concerts in
the United States. His favorite role was that of Lt.
Pinkerton in Madama Butterfly.
In 2004 Varela joined the Resident Artist
Program with the Palm Beach Opera singing
the role of Rodolfo in La Boheme. While in
Orlando he had the opportunity to work with
one of the greatest tenors of all time, Placido
Domingo, and was invited to study with the
Metropolita Opera's assistant director, Joan Dor-
nemann, in San Juan, Puerto Rico. In November
of this year Varela performed with David Foster
and Friends-Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas, Nev.


Critic Robin Leach, in an excerpt from the "Las
Vegas Weekly" wrote about Varela's performance,
"Luciano Pavarotti has been reborn! Fernando
has the voice and personality of a superstar. I
don't think I have ever seen an audience more
spellbound."
Verela will perform at 7 p.m.Thursday at
Lemon Bay High School, 2201 Placida Road,
Englewood.
Upcoming shows in the series include: "Let's
Hang On," Jan. 19, featuring the sounds of
Frankie Valli and the 4 Seasons. The Feb. 2
concert, New Odyssey, includes an assortment
of musical styles, vocal harmonies, and comedy
routines. On Feb. 16 veteran big band musician
Abe Gerard will lead the "Abe Gerard Orchestra."
On March 1 Tommy Mara and the Crests, a rock
'n' roll band, will feature the electrifying voice of
Tommy Mara in doo-wop tradition.

PROVIDED BY THE UNITARIAN UNIVERSALIST
FELLOWSHIP OF CHARLOTTE HARBOR
The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of
Charlotte Harbor is pleased to host inter-
nationally acclaimed musical team Dan
Duggan and Peggy Lynn for a concert at
7 p.m. Friday.
This duo combines original and traditional
songs and tunes with masterful harmonies and
inventive arrangements.
Duggan and Lynn have developed programs
for children, quilters, museums, libraries, and
schools. On stage, they have found a chemis-
try rarely seen in traditional music circles. The
couple's gift of insight is matched with dynamic


songwriting and instrumental virtuosity. Their con-
certs have been enjoyed from Maine to California.

"The Voice of the Mountains," is recognized for
her soulful songwriting and extraordinary vocal
versatility. Her work has been featured at the famous
Bluebird Caf6 in Nashville, and in 1996, Lynnwas
selected "Adirondack Woman of the Year"'
Duggan is known nationally for his wizardry on
hammered dulcimer and flat picking guitar, and is
the recipient of the National Hammered Dulcimer
Championship. Adding to his extensive array of
recordings, Duggan has recently released a new
album of original airs and waltzes called "Once in
a Blue Moon." He and Lynn have released a trio


album with Dan Berggren, called "Ten Miles to
Saturday Night," and as a duo have released two
recordings: "Keeping Christmas" and "A Stitich in
Time: Songs Celebrating the Art and Heritage of
Quilting."
Duggan's children's album, "Pieces of Our Life,"
earned a Parent's Choice Award in 1998. His
dulcimer work can also be heard on Paul Simon's
CD "You're The One," released in October of
2000.
Tickets are $10 and will be sold at the door.

John Hall'
BY BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGER
LET'S GO CORRESPONDENT
With 27 high-definition televisions and
everything from burgers to fried pickles on
the menu, its no wonder John Hall's Goal
Post Grill and Sports Bar was voted the best sports
bar in Charlotte County by readers of the Sun.
"We have every sports package there is," says
General Manager Carrie Dillow of the Port Char-
lotte restaurant. "If there's a game on TV, you can
see it here." Games include not only football, but
everything from basketball to fights, NASCAR,
ESPN Game Plan and more. And with 20 "sound
dogs" available, you can also control what you
hear on the TV near your table.
A graduate of Port Charlotte High School, Hall
received a football scholarship to the University
of Wisconsin, where he also earned a degree


Goal Post


in finance. After college he played 10 years in
the NFL, first as a placekicker for the New York
Jets and then the Washington Redskins. During
his career he made 203 of his 272 field goal at-
tempts until injuries forced him to retire.
Back in his hometown, Hall opened the Goal
Post Grill and Sports Bar, which is part of Smug-
glers Enterprises. "He comes in to the restaurant
at least three times a week and is very involved
in it," says Dillow.
The restaurant's menu includes dishes every-
one expects to be able to order at a sports bar,
from loaded potato skins and nachos to burgers,
ribs and wings.
But the Goal Post Grill and Sports Bar adds
special items that give their customers kicks, like
sweet potato fries, fresh homemade chips, and
treats like the Corey Raymer Trench Burger that's


Even the tables say "sports."


G


rill and Sports Bar


topped with a fried egg.
The pot roast sandwich is a customer favorite,
according to Dillow, as are their huge salads and
Larry's Crazy hot wings. And if Larry's style is
too hot for some, they can mix and match any of
the sauces and make their wings mild, medium
or hot and lightly breaded or "naked."
"We try to have something for everyone on the
menu, so a burger lover can come in with a friend
who wants a salad," Dillow explains.
While many customers might want to linger
and watch a game or two on the big screen TVs,
Dillow is also aware that others have places to
be. So Goal Post servers have 30-second and
two-minute goals: to greet each customer within
30 seconds and have their drink on the table

Pet lovers to paddle for paws


BY CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
EARS Animal Rescue Sanctuary is plan-
ning a Paddle For Paws fundraiser at 10
a.m. Sunday at the Grande Tours Kayak
Center, 12575 Placida Road.
Pet lovers will be treated to one hour of kayak-
ing, a hot dog and a cold drink for $20.
Artist Debbie Cerce has decorated a beautiful
bench to be raffled off.
All proceeds will benefit EARS, a no-kill shelter
located at 145 W. Dearborn St., in Englewood.
Bobbi Austin photographs pets needing adop-
tion, submits photos once a week to the special
"Pets of the Week" sections of local newspapers
and updates the shelter's website. She began
volunteering at EARS in 2008 and remembers
how the shelter has struggled over the years to
maintain quality care for abandoned cats and
dogs. In May of 2011 things looked pretty bleak,
she explained, and a special SOS (Save our
Shelter) event was planned. Tents were erected,
musicians were contacted and food was ordered.


One hour before the party was due to begin, a
horrendous wind and rainstorm tore through the
downtown area. Nothing remained intact at the
SOS party site once the tents collapsed. Since
then, less ambitious projects have managed to
keep the shelter from closing its doors, but it has
been a constant struggle to sponsor at least one
fundraising event a month.
According to Deva Ballantyne, EARS' pet
adoption counselor and treasurer, it costs the
staff approximately $300 per day to maintain
their present shelter. In addition to the usual air
conditioning and maintenance expenses, the staff
must provide shots, microchips and medication
when needed for the animals in their care.
The non-profit group is actively seeking a
less expensive location, but finding a property of
5,000-6,000 feet large enough to suit their needs is
extremely difficult. Meanwhile, at their jam-packed,
downtown Englewood location, volunteers sell fur-
niture, clothing, books and knickknacks daily at their
resale store: the "EARS Store and Adoption Center"
located adjacent to the shelter.


Communication Director Susan Reilly receives
all EARS office calls. People reporting aban-
doned animals in need of shelter may call 941-
475-0636. Once animals are rescued Veterinarian
Technician and Intake Coordinator Petra Kurpeski
examines the animal and then places them in a
large holding clinic not open to the public, located
on Englewood Road next to Loving Care Veteri-
nary Clinic. It's important for the newly rescued
animals to intermingle freely, interact with people
and not be confined to cages. In order to meet
the requirements set by the State of Florida, only
14 cats at a time are allowed in the Dearborn
facility. Once a cat is adopted, a replacement cat
from the holding clinic is brought to EARS for
adoption. Dogs are immediately examined then
placed in foster care until they can become part
of a loving family.
To learn more about EARS Animal Rescue
Sanctuary or "Paddle for Paws" call Deva Bal-
lantyne at 941-681-3877 or 941-681-4509.

It will be an emotional night for Maestro Wada and the


PROVIDED BY THE CHARLTOTE SYMPHONY
ORCHESTRA
The Charlotte Symphony Orchestra German
Night concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the
Charlotte Performing Arts Center in Punta
Gorda will be a deeply touching personal evening
for Music Director T. Francis Wada.
Even though the Maestro is of Japanese
heritage, the music of Felix Mendelssohn, Johann
Sebastian Bach, Johannes Brahms and Leopold
Stokowski will bring him back to his roots as a
music director.
"This concert will be a very emotional one for
me,"Wada said in reviewing the program. "It will
require all my energy, physical and emotional."
It is definitely personal. "Brahms Symphony
No.1," sometimes referred to as "Beethoven's
10th," brought him back into conducting, he said,
after a nine-year absence. It was the piece he
auditioned at the International Conductors' Insti-
tute in 1981, where he was picked as one of the
top 12 conductors by Maestro Herbert Blomstedt,
music director of Dresden Staatskappel, the old-
est symphony orchestra in the world.
That led to his invitation to study privately with
Blomstedt for the next 10 years, where, as Wada


puts it, "I rediscovered the privilege and joy of
conducting." It also led to a visit to Germany, with
Blomstedt, where Wada attended an outdoor
Bach concert, spent time in Mendelssohn's home
and office in Leipzig, and visited Mahler's home as
well.
The trip became not only "unforgettable," but
also a linchpin for his future career. Thus the
production on German Night of the Overture
to "Midsummer Night's Dream," composed by
Mendelssohn when he was 17-years-old.
It has been described by critics as "one of the
most enduring masterpieces of the musical rep-
ertoire," involving "Mendelssohn's extraordinarily
magical imagination, translating Shakespeare's
comedy into musical notes. What a fun piece for
the listener."
Bach's "Toccata and Fuge in D Minor," on the
other hand, perhaps better known as the opening
piece in Walt Disney's 1941 film, "Fantasia" and
the ring tone on millions of cell phones around
the world, has been described as "one of the
world's most famous and magnificent pieces."
It was also the product of youth: two twenty-
something composers born 200 years apart.
Bach, 23, "somewhat of a fireball organist, of-


ten composing wild music" composed Toccata, for
the organ, "a powerful and almost manic piece,"
shortly after 1708.
In 1902, almost two centuries later, another
spirited young 20-year-old organist, Leopold
Stokowsky, later to become the world-renowned
musical director of the Philadelphia Orchestra,
came to London and arranged Bach's 'Tocatta"
for symphony orchestra.
He recorded the piece in 1927 with the Phila-
delphia Orchestra, and the rest if history.
"Leopold Stokowski,' Wada said, "is truly a
creative conductor who inspires me to think
'out of the box'." And it's going to take some
additional thinking, he said, since the Perform-
ing Arts Center doesn't have a pipe organ. No
problem, the CSO musicians will represent the
organ pipes.
"It's certainly going to be an exciting time for
the Maestro and the orchestra," said CSO Execu-
tive Director James Morgese, "and equally for the
audience as well."
Tickets are $45 for adults, $15 for students
under 18 and may be purchased online at
www.charlottesymphony.com or by calling
941-205-9743.

times for the "Best Chef in the South" award
given annually by the James Beard Foundation.
She has also been given the Golden Spoon
Award by "Florida Trend Magazine" twice, includ-
ing in 2010.
Yet, Roland considers herself a work in
progress.
"Our palates change every seven years,"
Roland explained. "I cook the way I like to eat, so
I am continually evolving as a chef."
She describes her cooking as having a founda-
tion in classic French cuisine with a blend of
Asian, American and Italian influences.
Originally from Waterbury, Conn., Roland
worked in restaurants as a dishwasher, table
busser and waitress from the age of 15 through
her college years at Southern Connecticut State
University. Though she always wanted to be a
chef, her mother thought she should have a col-
lege degree before going to culinary school, for
which Roland is grateful.
She earned a Bachelor of Science in exercise
science before enrolling at the Culinary Institute
of America in Hyde Park, N.Y.
"By the time I went to culinary school, I was so
ready to learn everything; I absorbed information
like a sponge," said Roland.
Part of the curriculum at CIA is a six-month ex-
ternship, which Roland spent at the Pacific Club

in Newport Beach, Ca. The private club had three
kitchens and made everything from scratch. At
the end of her six months the club offered Roland
a job. After she earned her degree from CIA, she


went back to California and worked at the Pacific
Club for three years.
Roland came to Punta Gorda to be a chef
for IMPAC consulting. She stayed there for five
years, cooking for all corporate events and while
there met her husband James. Together, they
opened a catering business which they called
The Perfect Caper. In 2002, they decided to open
the restaurant.
Originally a 35-seat restaurant on Sullivan
Street, The Perfect Caper is now a 165-seat
restaurant on East Marion. Although the size
difference is huge, Roland still makes everything
from scratch "from our bread and fries to our
ice cream and ketchup," as she describes it. And
even the candies they serve at the meal's end.
"It's important to be able to delegate," said
Roland in explaining how making everything from
scratch for such a large number. "I have an excel-
lent garde manger chef who has been with me for
five years," Roland said. A garde manger chef is


typically responsible for preparing cold apperiiers
and plates.
Her husband James is able to step in as c iel
any time she needs the extra help, too, said PR.:
land. "And we have a wonderful sous chef wi:-
can handle anything."
Roland tries to learn something new every day
she said, so as not to become stagnant. "Thai'c
why I say I hope my greatest work hasn't been
done yet, but is still to come."

2011 movie yearbook


BY RENE RODRIGUEZ
MCCLATCHY NEWSPAPERS
Here is one last, highly irreverent look at
the best and worst in film of 2011 and
some in between.
Most convincing proof you can stick dinosaurs
into any movie: "The Tree of Life."
Funniest comedy: "Bridesmaids."
Funniest comedy about a subject no one
would normally think funny: "50/50," the true story
of a young man's battle with cancer.
Funniest comedy that had a terrible trailer:
"Bad Teacher."
Funniest comedy most likely to please your AP
English teacher: Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris."
Least funny comedy that had a promising
trailer: "Horrible Bosses."
Worst comedy: "Jack and Jill."
Best comic-book movie: "X-Men: First Class."
Worst comic-book movie: "Green Lantern."
Most surprisingly entertaining yet still ridicu-
lous comic-book movie: "Thor."

Best remake: "Straw Dogs."
Most tolerable remake: "Footloose."
Worst remake: "Arthur."
Most disappointing execution of an intriguing
premise: Mel Gibson as a man who speaks only
through a hand puppet in "The Beaver."
Most convincing argument never to shake
other people's hands again, ever: Steven Soder-
bergh's "Contagion."
Best sports movie: "Moneyball"
Best birth scene: The baby arrives in "The
Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part L"
Best children's movie: "Kung Fu Panda 2"

HIS WEEK:
hospital for the criminally insane,
where Maria is locked away, to find

or demonically possessed. With the
help of two young exorcists (Simon
Quarterman, Evan Helmuth), Isabella
tries to cure Maria -- and engages four
demons in a battle for her mother's soul.
