Life saved




at hospice


By CARLENE C. COBB
SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER

"Somebody's down in the
driveway!"
Tidewell volunteer Carol
Gallegos heard the shout and
was the first to run outside,
telling someone to call 911,
which he did, while she
rushed to the fallen man. She
spoke to him, but he was not
responsive. She checked for a
pulse. He had none and wasn't
breathing.
Remembering the steps
she had practiced in a CPR
class taken six months before,
Gallegos shifted into high
gear. She pulled off the man's
tie, opened his shirt and
began administering chest
compressions.
Tidewell volunteer Mary
Gillespie and RN Becky Riffle
joined her outside to assist.
Riffle asked someone to go
get oxygen. Someone else
retrieved a blanket to put
under the man's head.
After a few minutes, Gal-
legos heard someone say, "He's
gone." She saw that the man's
color appeared blue, his eyes
were open and clouded in a
fixed stare and he remained
unresponsive.
"I'm going to try breaths,"
Gallegos said. "Let's just keep


going until the medics get
here."
Riffle continued chest
compressions.
As a team, the three women
worked on the man, admin-
istering breaths and chest
compressions.
Suddenly, Gallegos felt him
exhale.
"He's breathing!" she said
and asked the man to squeeze
her hand if he understood her.
"He squeezed for all he
was worth and I knew he
was back," Gallegos said. "I
am so grateful we kept up
the CPR and didn't give up,
even though he seemed so far
gone."
The stricken man, Jack
Collins, who works for Farley
Funeral Homes and was on
assignment at the time, was
transported by ambulance to
Venice Regional Medical Cen-
ter, where he was stabilized.
Recently, he returned to the
TidewellVenice Hospice House
to thank the volunteers and
nurse who saved his life.
Now recovering at home in
Venice, Collins said, "Those
three ladies are three saints. I
owe them everything. The folks
at Tidewell saved my life."
"I recommend CPR classes to

Church project protested


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

The peace and tranquility of a
residential subdivision slid head
first into the potential noise and
bright lights of a worship center
and church softball fields Tues-
day during a Sarasota County


Commission meeting.
After listening to neighbors'
objections, and voicing a few
concerns of their own, com-
missioners voted unanimously
to continue a public hearing
regarding a special exception
to allow a place of worship
in the area east of Jacaranda


Boulevard and south of Inter-
state 75 in Venice. Commis-
sioners' final vote will be on
Feb. 7.
Members of the adjacent,

Rent unpaid at Snook Haven

General manager Jonathan Davis welcomes customers to the restaurant at Snook Haven Park, which features
outdoor entertainment.


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

Two partners in a company
that serves as concessionaire
at Snook Haven Park have
requested an extension to pay
their rent to the county, which
owns the facility.
Citing the poor economy,
the record cold of 2009-10, the
BP oil spill and bad personnel
decisions, attorney Kenneth
Keefe and Dr. Leonard
Kronen, managing members
of Sunrise Sunset Concessions
of Snook Haven, have asked
Carolyn Brown, general man-
ager of Sarasota County Parks
and Recreation, for more time
to pay back rent that possibly
dates to May 2011.
Snook Haven has been a
mainstay in South Sarasota


County for more than 50
years. The fish camp's laid-
back restaurant features
specialties such as gator bites,
butterfly shrimp and pulled
pork, and live entertainment
outdoors, like the Gulf Coast
Banjo Society on Thursdays.
In September 2010, Keefe
and Kronen bought 95 percent
interest in the company that
manages the park from Peder
Jansson.
The company is required
by a 2007 contract to pay the
county 12.5 percent of its
monthly sales, but the county
has not received a payment
since May 11, 2011, accord-
ing to an August 2011 letter
from Brown to Keefe. That
payment was for $18,428.44,
Brown wrote, adding that each
late payment would incur a


5 percent late fee.
Keefe responded in a
Sept. 30 letter that rent at
12.5 percent of revenue is
"high by industry standards,"
with 5 percent to 8 percent
being more appropriate. He
also cited "very high" util-
ity bills and "unusually high"
maintenance costs.
Snook Haven is located on
2.5 acres off the Myakka River,
about a mile east of the inter-
section of River Road and East
Venice Avenue. The restaurant
has no automatic dishwasher,
making per-customer food-
preparation costs "dispropor-
tionately high," Keefe wrote,
though one will be installed
this month.
Keefe acknowledged that

Venice fights for Housing and Urban Development funds


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

A new wrinkle in Venice's
effort to rebuild low-income
HUD housing surfaced Tues-
day that could jeopardize a
planned $12 million rebuild of
Grove Terrace.
Norstar/Primerica, the
Venice Housing Authority's
contractor and consultant,
sent a representative before
Venice City Council this week


updating it on the
HUD grant cycle
and asking for its
help.
Council agreed
to write a letter to
Sarasota County
officials asking
them hold firm in


HOLIC


their decision not
to sign off on forms that could
allow a third-party developer
to get in on the HUD grant
cycle.


Scott Culp, of Atlantic Hous-
ing Partners, submitted an
80-unit low-income housing
project near Sarasota city hall
at the end of the HUD appli-
cation process, requesting a
local contribution. The county
turned the applicant down,
saying it was too late and
didn't participate in a months-
long public hearing process.
County officials also said
the Venice Housing Authority
project and Sarasota Housing


Authority low-income housing
project were priorities.
After the county funding
application deadline passed,
Atlantic Housing came back
with a 33-unit proposal for a
project with 17 rehabilitated
units, which meant the project
no longer required a local
contribution under HUD grant
rules.
County officials again turned
down the offer and refused to
sign forms for Atlantic Housing


that acknowledge certain
county policies are in place.
Through its attorney, Atlan-
tic Housing said issuing the
forms is an administrative
act and withholding them is
discriminatory, and threatened
suit.
County officials thus far
have declined to send the
forms, said Paula Rhodes, a
Norstar/Primerica executive

Athletes commonly sustain overuse injuries
because they have anatomical abnormalities
that place stress on the surrounding structures.
For instance, there are those who have
naturally flat feet that excessively turn inward
pronatee) as they run. While a certain amount
of pronation is natural, excessive pronation
can be harmful because it causes increased


stress throughout the lower extremities. The
results are overuse injuries such as stress
fractures and posterior tibial tendonitis. And
the problems associated with excessive
pronation are not restricted to the feet. They
may also affect the entire lower extremities,
including the knee and hip. Once the
underlying problem of excessive pronation is
identified, steps can be taken to compensate
for the abnormality.

Making sense of school grades


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Sarasota County
education officials were
on pins and needles last
week as the state educa-
tion department released
grades for individual
high schools.
While the Sarasota
County School District
has been an "A" district
ever since school grades
were adopted, three "A"
high schools fell to a "B"
this year.
Officials went to great
lengths to explain why all
its high schools earned
enough points to qualify
for an "A," but only two
got one.
In a nutshell, here's
why: Under the state
grading system, schools
can be penalized a full
grade if certain sub-
groups of students don't
perform at the required
level.
Depending on the
Sarasota County high
school, either there
wasn't an increase of
1 percent of "low-per-
formers" reading at grade
level, or the graduation
rate of at-risk students
fell.
"At Venice High and
other schools, they
worked so hard with the
lower quartile but still
weren't able to get an A,'"
said Superintendent Lori
White. "For people who


worked so hard this is
somewhat discouraging."
Nevertheless, she
said, while the school
grades may not reflect it,
"there was considerable
improvement."
"All of our high schools
have a lot to be proud
of," White said.
Here's how each school
fared:
Venice High dropped
from an "A" in the 2009-
10 school year to a "B" in
the 2010-11 school year
even though it improved
the percentage of low
performers reading at
grade level, going from
47 percent to 51 percent.
The school fell short
in the percent of at-risk
students graduating.
In 2010, 70 percent
graduated; last year only
67 percent did a 3 per-
centage point decline.
Thus, the "B" school
grade.
It was virtually the
same scenario for Booker
High. The school saw
significant improvement
in lower quartile reading
scores (from 42 percent
considered proficient
in 2010 to 58 percent
in 2011), but its at-risk
graduation rate fell by


1 percentage point, from
61 percent to 60 percent
- again, resulting in a
"B."
It was the flip side for
Sarasota High, which
maintained its "B."
Despite a 12 percent-
age point increase in
the number of at-risk
students who graduated
(going from 56 percent
to 68 percent), the school
fell a grade because it
maintained the same
percentage of lowest
quartile readers. No
lower grades, just not
enough improvement.
Under the rules no
increase, no "A."
Sarasota Military Acad-
emy went from an "A"
to "B" by doing slightly
worse in both catego-
ries. It should be noted
its graduation rate for
at-risk youth which
fell from 85 percent to
82 percent is still well
above all high schools
except for Pine View.
Riverview High and
North Port High kept
their "B" status. Each
school maintained the
same percentage of low
performing readers.
(Remember, you need
to show improvement


of at least 1 percent to
receive an "A.") But both
had lower graduation
rates for at-risk students
compared to the year
before (Riverview going
from 56 to 53 percent;
North Port going from 79
to 68 percent).

More changes
to come
Explaining how read-
ing and math scores were
for the most part improv-
ing, or at least holding
level, while school grades
went down, has been
no easy task for school
officials.
In a prepared state-
ment Sarasota County
Executive Director of
High Schools Steve Can-
tees said that a number
of important academic
performance gains were
made at the county's
high schools last year.
What made the
achievement even more
significant, he added,
is most have a higher
percentage of students
taking more difficult
advanced placement
courses.
White said it was the
first time the at-risk


considering more
changes to grad-
ing schools through a
waiver of the federal No
Child Left Behind Act,
which is itself up for
reauthorization.
"If we don't change
(some of the standards)
through the reauthori-
zation, most (students)
won't make it because
the bar will have been so
high," White said.
She's concerned that
changes to NCLB and
Florida's FCAT 2.0 will
change grade calcula-
tions yet again next year.
"A modification of
both to something that is
acceptable" is what we're
looking for, White said.
"Right now we don't
know what the rules will
be," she said. "They (will)
have new achievement
levels in place, much
more rigorous. Until then
... we can't even formu-
late new grades, can't
even simulate it. They


are going blindly into
constructing grades."
The concern is that
school grades will go
down again next year
due to a cycle of higher
achievement standards
being phased in. Accord-
ing to the Florida Depart-
ment of Education web-
site, the transition from
the FCAT to the FCAT 2.0
will be phased in, with
2011 FCAT 2.0 Reading
and Mathematics being
the first assessments
to transition. FCAT 2.0
Science will be adminis-
tered to students for the
first time in the spring of
2012.
"If the whole state
plummets under the new
FCAT 2.0 tests, to the lay
person it's going to look
like our schools are going
downhill, and that may
not be the case at all,"
White said. "It's frustrat-
ing from this end."

Gingrich


coming to


Sarasota


County

By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER
Former House Speaker
Newt Gingrich is bring-
ing his campaign for the
Republican
presidential
nomination
to Sarasota
County.
Gingrich,
the former
Georgia
GINGRICH congressman
who placed
fourth in the 2012 Iowa
Republican caucuses, will
be in Sarasota for an open
and free rally at Dolphin
Aviation, 8191 North
Tamiami Trail near
the Sarasota-Bradenton
International Airport at
1:45 p.m. Jan. 24.
Former Pennsylvania
Sen. Rick Santorum, who
placed second in the cau-
cuses, also confirmed that
he will be back in Sarasota
County at least one more
time prior to the Jan. 31
Republican presidential
preference primary. How-
ever, Republican Party of
Sarasota County Chair Joe
Gruters does not yet have
a date for that visit.
Gruters said Santorum
and fellow candidate
former Massachusetts
Gov. Mitt Romney, as well
as Minnesota Congress-
woman Michele Bach-
mann and businessman
Herman Cain, have all
visited Sarasota County.
"I think we'll have
almost every candidate
who is still in the race here
in Sarasota" before the
primary, Gruters said. "Our
goal is to get them all, and
we have been in commu-
nication with all of them."
Bachmann and Cain
have suspended their cam-
paigns. Gingrich, former
Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman,
Texas Congressman Ron
Paul, Texas Gov. Rick Perry,
Romney and Santorum are
still in the race.
"Florida is up for grabs,
and I think whoever spends
the most time here is going
to win," Gruters said. "The
voters are paying attention
and they want to meet the
candidates and they want
to see them up close and
ask them tough questions."

County approves



anti-fraud resolution


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER
SARASOTA COUNTY
- County commission-
ers on Tuesday approved
a resolution that outlines
the obligations of county
employees in reporting
suspected fraud and pro-
tects employees who make
a report in good faith.
Karen Rushing, Clerk
of the Circuit Court and
County Comptroller, had
recommended to commis-
sioners that an anti-fraud
policy be implemented for
Sarasota County employ-
ees, including the county
administrator, county
commissioners, consul-
tants, vendors, contrac-
tors, outside agencies and
other parties having a
business relationship with
county government.
The policy "delineates
the authority of the Clerk
and the office of Ethics and
Compliance in respect to
investigative responsibility,
defines fraud for the pur-
pose of the policy, outlines
employees and manage-
ment's obligation to report
and clearly defines a non-
retaliation policy for good-
faith reporting," Steve
Uebelacker, the county's
ethics and compliance
officer, said in an email.
The policy comes in the
wake of county officials'
internal probe of purchas-
ing practices last year. The
county had processed
2,874 purchase orders
worth almost $279 mil-
lion in fiscal year 2009-10.
Employee Rodney Jones
was fired in March after
admitting to county offi-
cials that he had accepted
three NASCAR excursions
and a Home Depot gift
card from a county vendor.
Within a few months,
a total of 10 county


ROAD TALKS TO RESUME
Rather than agree to pay what could amount to more than $30
million to upgrade about 23 miles of county roads located within Venice
city limits before turning them over to the city, county commissioners
on Tuesday opted to have staff continue negotiating with city officials.
The roads were once located within county enclaves in the city, but
when the properties were annexed by the city, no one discussed who
was responsible for maintaining the adjacent roads. That discussion now
is in full bloom.
City officials believe the roads need to be brought up to current
standards. County officials say the roads will remain usable after regular
maintenance.
On Tuesday county commissioners agreed to have staff tell the city it
will guarantee the quality of the roads to a certain degree and for
a time to be determined as part of continued negotiations to hand
over maintenance of the roads to the city.
Bringing the roads to the city's desired level would cost $31.5 million,
the county says including everything from resurfacing to right-of-
way acquisition to constructing sidewalks on both sides of roads -
before turning the roads over to the city.
County staff proposed Tuesday to spend $781,000 over the next four
or five years to resurface and repair the 23 miles of roads before turning
them over to the city, but commissioners chose to resume negotiations.
Staff said it will continue to maintain roads that require upgrading,


during negotiations.

employees lost their jobs,
including former county
administrator Jim Ley, who
parted ways with commis-
sioners in May.
Commissioners also
voted Tuesday to establish
the Myakka Mobile Home
ParkWastewater District,
to facilitate the payment of
fees to fund construction
of a lift station and force
main. A wastewater treat-
ment facility that serves
the 73-unit Myakka Mobile
Home Court and the adja-
cent Myakka River Trading
Company convenience
store (now closed), near
the intersection of U.S. 41
and North River Road, cur-
rently is operating without

consent order issued by
the state Department of

SUN NEWSPAPERS


Downturn led to bank consolidations


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

In April 2008 the
headline read, "Banking
boom continuing." There
were forty-four banking
offices, with five new
banks in the process of
opening and two exist-
ing banks planning new
locations.
Newcomers included
Southern Republic
Bank, opening on U.S.
41 Bypass; Orion Bank
of Sarasota, intending
to break ground at The
Galleria on East Venice
Avenue; and First State
Bank, which acquired
Stanley Dean's office in
South Venice. Prepar-
ing to build new offices
were the recent Sarasota
start-up, Sabal Bank, at
East Venice Avenue, and
Colonial BankWest at
Tamiami Trail and Albee
Road in Nokomis.
People's Community
Bank opened in the
Galleria Plaza in South
Venice, Washington


Mutual opened an office
on North U.S. 41 Bypass
and World Savings had
an office near Walmart
in South Venice. River-
side Bank opened offices
in Nokomis and Venice
and Century Bank, with
eight offices, operated a
branch on South U.S. 41
Bypass.
TIB Group of Naples
had acquired the Bank of
Venice and just opened
a newly built branch in
North Venice. Trustco
Bank opened an office in
South Venice and local
startup Florida Shores
Bank opened in tempo-
rary office accommoda-
tions at Bird Bay.
David Voigt, longtime
local banker and former
chair of Bank of Venice,
expressed surprise at the
growth then, comment-
ing, "More people are
doing Internet banking,
and maybe one of these
years down the road they
will not need branches."
Optimistic despite the
start of the economic

the years we would see 30 bank offices in the

the FDIC while Capitol
replaced TIB, which had
earlier acquired Bank of
Venice.
One of the great suc-
cess stories has been
Florida Shores Bank,
founded locally by Jim
Kuhlman, who previ-
ously was associated
with Colonial Bank.
Launched at the time the
banking crash was in full
swing, this community
bank, with the sound
care and past experience
of Kuhlman, avoided
becoming entangled in
the messy mortgages
debacle. Now highly
rated for a start-up
with local roots, it has
amassed considerable
investments and stock.
Currently one bank
is making moves to
establish an additional
office in the area: Chase
is seeking planning
approval for land at
Tamiami Trail and Indian
Avenue.

New restaurant to offer pizza by the yard


"People walking and
driving by will see guys
cooking and the flames
of our big oven," said
Alessandro Diferdinando,
co-owner with Giuseppe
Del Sole of the new Made
In Italy Restaurant, 117
W Venice Ave., replacing
Jackson's American Grill,
which closed at the end
of the year.
Plans are to open in
February serving pizzas
and bread cooked in the
newly installed wood-
burning oven built into
the restaurant's dining
room. Fresh pasta, pani-
nis, salads and soups are
some of the other items
on the menu.
A new dining expe-
rience will be a long
community table seating
16, together with more
booths and service by
mostly Italian waiters.


Three appetizers will
be cooked on ceramic
pots in two minutes in
the 850-degree oven.
Diferdinando's goal is to
create pizza by the yard,
serving four people with
one yard and six people
with two yards. Couples
can order a half yard. The
pizza is served on a wood
board with movable legs
to stand on a table.
The rear patio has
seating for 35 diners,
and umbrellas are being
installed. In May the
owners hope to cover
the whole area with a big
awning, then install air
conditioning for summer
and heating for winter.
Both from Italy, Del
Sole met Diferdinando
11 years ago in London,
where for three years he
worked for chef Gordon
Ramsay of TV's "Hell's
Kitchen," opening two
restaurants for him.
Coming to Sarasota
three years ago, they
have worked at down-
town Sarasota's Epicure
Restaurant.
"Best friends, we
now have our own first
business," said Diferdi-
nando, whose wife will


work with them when
they open. Hours will be
seven days a week from
11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.
during season.

Price shocker
The Three Crowns
Store, 323W. Venice
Ave., had a listing price
of $2.3 million in June
2006, but last month it
changed hands for just
$558,000.
Peter Tierney, manager
of Mornin Glorys LLC of
Naples, sold the property
to Eli Designs LLC of
Davie, Fla., a company
managed by Elizabeth
Castro of Davie and Mary
Esther Gentile of Venice.
Tierney had acquired
the 9,150-square-foot
building in August 2003
for $512,000. His com-
pany announced plans to
open the upscale Turtle
Club of Venice, a similar
venture to the restaurant
they operate in Punta
Gorda.
Planning was under-
taken over a period of
years, but the project
never materialized. A
few weeks ago, Sarasota
real estate broker Tony


Andrews announced
the building had been
acquired by a local client
who planned major reno-
vations in preparation for
seeking a national retail
tenant.

Arts, crafts
and more
Headlining the free
entertainment at the
20th annual Venice-
Nokomis Rotary Club's
Fine Arts & Crafts Fes-
tival will be popular T.J.
Carney's entertainer Ken
McBride.
Besides the displays by
fine artists and crafters,
this year there will be
something for the whole
family, from bounce
houses, a children's activ-
ity tent with face paint-
ing, MarineMax boats
and British and Antique
car shows to food, beer,
kettle corn, funnel cake,
sodas and ice cream.
The event is held at the
Venice Municipal Airport
Festival Grounds near
the Circus Bridge begin-
ning at 9 a.m. Saturday,
Jan. 21, and 10 a.m. Sun-
day, Jan. 22. Admission is

Milestone reached
Caldwell Trust Com-
pany, with offices in
Venice and Sarasota,
now exceeds a half bil-
lion dollars in assets
under management, said
Kelly Caldwell Jr., CEO
and president. It met
this milestone with an
increase of more than
25 percent since January
2009.
Founded in the 1970s
by his father, Roland G.
Caldwell Sr., the com-
pany has been in an
expansion mode since
the early 2000s and now
has nine trust officers.

Tuesday Morning are
starting stocking the
9,775-square-foot store
at 4127 South Tamiami
Trail in Venice Village
Shoppes.
"It will be a second

company's Osprey store,
originally on the island


of Venice, is not closing,"
said Lyndsey Lumsden,
public relations officer.
"Tuesday Morning has
been working with us
on this project for over
four years," said Harvey
Jandreau, mall leasing

"In today's economy,
people are looking for

don't want to pay full
price," said Kathleen
Mason, president and
CEO of Tuesday Morning.
Offering one-stop
shopping for affordable
entertaining and gift
items, the company sells
brand name and first-
quality merchandise.

Englewood seasonal resident John Macinnis
is looking for women willing to share their
personal experiences in World War II to be
featured in a documentary film.


By SUSAN ERWIN
STAFF WRITER

John Macinnis is on a quest
to find women willing to
share their personal experi-
ences fromWorldWar II.
A seasonal resident and
native of Ann Arbor, Mich.,
Macinnis lives in the area
about six months each year.
His son, Mark, lives in Los
Angeles and is researching
the idea of making a docu-
mentary about women who
joined the labor force during
World War II.
The documentary would
focus on Rosie the Riveter,
a cultural icon of the U.S.
representing the American


women who worked in fac-
tories during World War II,
many of whom produced
parts for airplanes and tanks
and other war supplies.
"It was really the beginning
of a liberation movement for
women who stayed home
and were basically full-time
housewives," Macinnis said.
"When the men went to war,
they went out and worked
at factories and proved to
everyone just what they
could do."
John said that his son asked
him for his help in finding
subjects to feature in the film.
He figured with all the visi-
tors to Florida in the winter
season, that he might have


a good chance of reaching
more people.
Together, the two are
searching for women who
will share information like
family letters and other
documentation to use in the
project.
"If there are women in
the area that I can interview
personally, that would be very
helpful," said Macinnis. "Ide-
ally, it would be great to find
someone who kept love let-
ters or other correspondence
from that time."
John said that Mark
recently finished a documen-
tary film on urban farming
called "Urban Roots."
The film has been shown


in various venues throughout
the country and was spon-
sored by the Whole Foods
grocery chain.
"It was basically shown
wherever aWhole Foods store
exists," Macinnis said.
Mark also produced
another documentary on
techno music several years
ago that has been shown
around the U.S. and Europe.
If you have a personal
experience about a woman
who fits the description of
Rosie the Riveter and would
like to share your story, con-
tact John at 734-904-2560 or
macinnisj@aol.com.

Neighbors get surprise for yelling at dogs


A pet owner is in jail
for brandishing a loaded
weapon at a couple who
yelled at his
dogs.
According
to a Sara-
sota County
Sheriff's
Office
report:
SMITH Just after
midnight
Jan. 8 residents in the
500 block of Morningside
Drive were awakened
by dogs barking on their
property.
They both went outside
to yell at the dogs. When
the dog's owner showed
up they told him, "There
are leash laws" and that
he "needed to get the
dogs off our property."
The dog owner reportedly
said, "I have something
for you," walked over to
his house and emerged
with a weapon. The vic-
tims retreated into their
house and called 911.
Sheriff's deputies
arrived to see the defen-
dant walking up and
down his driveway with a
revolver in hand. Depu-
ties recovered a .357
revolver and a 870 shot-
gun. Both were loaded
and ready to shoot,
according to the report.
John Patrick Smith, 47,
of Venice, was arrested
and charged with aggra-
vated assault with intent
to commit a felony. He
was released that evening
after posting a $15,000
bond, and ordered to
turn over all firearms
within 24 hours.

Broken portrait

OUR VIEW



Linking up with the new generation


W not's up w/you? (Text me.)
Dinner tonite? (There's an
app for that.)
:)
In case you were napping, social
networking and constant wireless
connection are the future. And the
future is now.
Say what you will for the good old
ways of the good old days, but more
and more it seems the easiest and
surest way to communicate with the
people we don't see face to face -
friends and old classmates, children or
grandchildren isn't by telephone or
letter or anything else so dad-blamed
20th century. It's Facebook, Twitter,
text. Whatever.
Some people are logged on 24/7.
You've no doubt seen them with their
laptops and iPhones updating per-
sonal information and commenting
on everything from the weather and
their kids' report cards to the results of
"Dancing with the Stars" and the Iowa
caucuses.
Sometimes the information


exchanged is as ephemeral as an
electron, but sometimes not. Social
media networks have been known to
launch successful revolutions: Just
Google "Mubarak" if you doubt the
power of new media to motivate a
wide audience.
So, like it or not, accept it or ignore
it, the fact is that social networking
is the new normal for the younger
generation. It's as natural to them as
wearing a watch or carrying a wal-
let or a cellphone. And the fact is,
research indicates more and more
oldsters are joining the action too.
Which leads us to a question about
the civic life of our community: Are
local governments fully onboard?
Shouldn't county and city depart-
ments and elected officials be using
Facebook and the like to interact with
the people they serve?
They already do, to a degree. Librar-
ies in Charlotte and Sarasota have
Facebook pages. Emergency manage-
ment and tourism agencies are wired
in. Charlotte County Community


Services has a Facebook page (link to
it through the county website) with
a wall of photos and posted press
releases. Sarasota County government
has a Community Connections page
with a handful of photos and press
releases. The city of North Port has a
Flickr file full of photos. Venice is on
Facebook.
It would seem natural that elected
officials also might gravitate to new
media, but there's one big problem:
The nuances of Florida's Sunshine
Law. How does a law intended to
ensure that decision-makers conduct
official business in the open scare
away from this very public medium?
The Facebook question arose last
month at a Sarasota County Commis-
sion workshop. No surprise that it was
put on the agenda by Commissioner
Christine Robinson, the only board
member under 50 years old.
Robinson has a personal Face-
book page for friends and family and
wanted guidance on setting up a
professional page as a commissioner.


But no. County staff warned about
the pitfalls involving archiving public
records and communications among
commissioners. The potential for liti-
gation frightened off Robinson's fellow
board members. Commissioner Jon
Thaxton was quoted as saying, "This
is something where I would not prefer
to be on the leading edge or the trial-
court case to determine how to use
new social medias in government."
It's an understandable concern,
especially given the recent history
of litigious government watchdog
groups. Still, we wonder whether our
local officials aren't slow to the train as
it speeds down the tracks.
We know social media are second
nature to younger generations. They
provide another access point to civic
involvement, and a critical one at that.
If local governments fail to find inno-
vative ways to connect with this large
segment of society where they live
today, our civic structure could suffer
in the long run.
:( to that.


Save the dates


Goodness, doesn't the New
Year bring us lots of exciting
ways to spend our time.
This Saturday, the SouthVen-
ice Civic Association proudly
presents the 12th annualVen-
ice Beach Expo, 720 Alligator
Drive, Venice. There will be 35
exhibitors, arts and crafts -
something for everyone. If you
get a chance, get out there and
support this event. The folks
over at the association work
very hard to make it a great
time.
The Venice-Nokomis Rotary
Club will host its 20th annual
Arts and Crafts Festival Sat-
urday, Jan. 21, and Sunday,
Jan. 22. The usual components
will be presented, this year
including the 8th annual Duck
Pluck. The combination of
craft booths, boats, cars, art
and entertainment for adults
and children promises to gen-
erate fun for all ages. C'mon
down and support Rotary as
it raises funds for the Rotary
Futures Program at Venice
High School and its Invest-
ment In Youth Program, as well
as other charities.
The Plantation Celebrity Golf
Tournament is right around
the corner. Feb. 8 and 9 are this
year's dates, and it promises
to outdo last year. I think we
are publishing the information
starting today, so please keep
your eyes open for this one
Our Mother's House will
be hosting its annual Wine
Tasting, Auction, and Dinner
Dance Thursday, Feb. 23. I
encourage as many of you to
attend as possible. This group
does an incredible service for
a worthy cause and it is my
belief that second chances
often generate the best in
people. Your help here is most
appreciated. I look forward to
seeing you all there.
It is almost a weekly theme
I hear from the young ladies
of Venice: "We have to go
all the way to Sarasota to be
able to dance and enjoy the
company of young men in
this area. Why can't this area
invest in something for us?"
Well, I am pleased to tell you
that my friend at Bentley's
Resort Hotel has heard this
complaint and has decided to
take action. The Underground
Night Club at Bentley's Resort
Hotel will now allow ladies
18 to 20 years of age to enter
the nightclub as long as the
wear identification of Bentley's
choice that indicates their age.
Ladies and gentlemen, enjoy;


however, be both respectful
and responsible.
My new friend Michelle
Ryan, community relations
manager and VAYP Director at
the Venice Area Chamber of
Commerce, tells me that this
group is organizing the first-
ever Smoothie King 5K Fool's
Run. Why a Fool's Run? you
may ask. Because of the date:
April 1.
A $20 pre-registration or $25
day-of-the-race fee is required
to participate. The first 150 to
register are guaranteed a goody
bag and a shirt of some sort.
After the race there will be food
and entertainment. Maxine Bar-
ritt Park is where all the action
will be. Forms to register can be
picked up at the chamber, or
call Michelle at home anytime at
941-.... Had you worried there
for a second, didn't I, Michelle?
The chamber number, 941-488-
2236, will be fine.
Sandy McGowan and crew
are planning a fashion show for
February (I am sure they will fill
me in) and an event for January
to stimulate us all to come out
and shop. Watch the Gondolier
for January's events and more
to come in the future months.
I continue to preach two
things: First, when there is a
choice as where you will shop,
please choose local; and sec-
ond, it is small business' job to
get us off our couch and come
visit them. Sandy understands
this value and is the ambassa-
dor of local.
More thanks again go out to
Kirstin Fulkerson for continuing
our tour of those organizations
that selflessly make a difference
in our community and people's
lives. Next time I sit down to
write I will share the wonder-
ful experiences I have received.
(Wendy over there at GCCF
continues to bring me that great
candy and I am just happy.)
Peter Wozniak at Venice
Regional Medical Center
should never have to ask in
print for someone to contact
him with anything negative or
positive concerning our hospi-
tal. Peter runs a tight ship and
his goals are higher than your
average medical standards.
From where I sit I can only tell
the hospital and Peter's staff
perform miracles every day.
One of those miracles comes
in to our office smiling every
day. Peter and staff, the Venice
Gondolier knows that thank
you is not enough, and we will
always remember what you
accomplished.
The funny thing about nega-
tive is it darn sure travels a lot
faster than anything positive
out there. My hope continues
to be that at the very least we
look at the bright side of most
situations before we just start
spouting off the negative.
To effect change, you must
be willing to make change.

Why? The good old boys
keep pushing for the airport,
the airport, the airport. A
Russian trying to get his jet
pilot license came all the way
from there to Venice. I wonder
where he was staying. I won-
der why he came to Venice. I
remember they trained some
Muslims over here. Why are
foreigners coming to Venice
and living here to train for
their pilot's license? The big
boys want bigger and better,
and people are killed.
Unknown. So he prays a lot;
so do I. I can't play football,
but I can do lots of things he
can't. I make apple pies and I
don't even ask the Lord to look
at them. Nobody knows my
name.
Sucked up. Why is it when
some young people die they
become the most wonderful
person? When I was young
these sad things happened
too, but no one ever heard of a
counselor at school to help us
with our grief. We just sucked
it up.
Not yet. This is in response
to the caller who wrote that
developing the airport would
discourage people from buy-
ing in Venice. The airport has
been here since the 1940s and
apparently it hasn't discour-
aged too many people from
moving to Venice, including
you. I don't believe you have
the right to say it would dis-
courage people from moving
to the area. I think it's an excel-
lent asset for Venice and I hope
it continues to grow.
Need to know. I just real-
ized that I requested several
months ago that Teri Hansen
or her delegates put the names
of the people on the board
of Gulf Coast Community
Foundation in the paper, the
towns where they live and
their salaries. I'm still waiting.
Would very much appreciate
it. I think the public needs to
know that.


Let 'em




















Have It
Big shots. I'm wondering if
fireworks are illegal, why do
they continue to sell them? It
doesn't seem right the whole
neighborhood should have to
suffer because a few irrespon-
sible people want to make
noise and keep us up all night.
We had them going from about
3 o'clock in the afternoon
until 1 o'clock in the morn-
ing, upsetting our dog and the
neighbor next door who is sick.
It just doesn't seem fair to me.
I wish they'd do something
about it.
Lit up. I certainly think we
should give great big hearty
applause to the man on Sham-
rock Boulevard who had a
wonderful display of lights over
Christmas. The penguins, the
reindeer it was just super,
and the roller coaster was great.
I also want to congratulate all
of the people who have left
their Christmas lights up. On
Jan. 4, Christmas lights are still
blooming in people's yards and
it's a pleasure to drive around
at night and see them. Also,
why do we have to take up a
whole half page of the Gon-
dolier about the opening of


the high school cafeteria? So
what? A lot of us older people
in town are not interested in
the opening of a new cafeteria.
A small article would have been
sufficient. Also, enough already
- stop printing these totally
boring stories about the North
Jetty Fish Camp. I've lived here
many, many years as a year-
round resident and I find those
stories are extremely boring. I
do think you could find some
more interesting tales to tell
aboutVenice than just the fish
camp. Thank you for having the
Let'em Have It line so we can

Noise limit. I live in Venice
near Nokomis where I believe
one-half the motorcycles in
Florida are located. Not only
motorcycles, but loud motor-
cycles you can hear a mile
away. Is there any hope that
law enforcement in Venice or
Nokomis can limit this assault
on my and my fellow taxpay-
ers' ears? I am sure the police
can hear as well or better than
I. This idiotic noise can be con-
trolled. There is something on
the market mufflers. I don't
care how fast they go or where
they eventually flip and crash,
just don't want to hear them.

Resolutions you can actually keep


ANN
FAVREAU
GUEST COLUMNIST

The holidays are over.
The decorations are stored
for another year. The New
Year 2012 is here.
Many of us have once
again made resolu-
tions. Oh, we want to
get in shape, lose a few
pounds, take better care
of ourselves and kick the
bad habits. By the middle
of February our best
intentions will be long


forgotten as we slip back
into our comfortable
ways.
There is a resolution
you can keep that will
prolong your life and
make you feel better
about yourself decide
to volunteer in your
community. You will not
be alone. According to
the U.S. Department of
Labor Statistics, you will
join 62.8 million people
in the United States who
are volunteers.
According to the gov-
ernment figures for the
year ending September


2010, the rate for women
is 29.3 percent; for men,
23.2 percent. The most
likely to volunteer are
those who range in age
from 35 to 44. It can be
noted that those 65 and
older give more than 90
hours each annually.
Helen Keller said, "I long
to accomplish a great and
noble task, but it is my
chief duty to accomplish
small tasks as if they were
great and noble."
It is the little things,
like the hour here and
there, that can make a
big difference in your


life and your com-
munity. Everyone has
some time and talent
to share to make some-
thing happen. In return,
volunteering can give
one a grand sense of
accomplishment.
I know that when I am
working with the Venice,
Fla., Lions Club at its
vision and hearing clinic,
facilitating a poetry
group for the Suncoast
Writers Guild, calming
someone's fears at an
ostomy support group
meeting or lectoring at
church, I feel my life is


worthwhile. The time
flies by and I leave the
activity energized.
Volunteers in my
Florida community
mirror the work that is
done nationally. That is,
they provide their time
and talent to community
service organizations,
churches, education and
youth services, hospitals
and health organiza-
tions. They are involved
in fundraising, coach-
ing, tutoring, teaching,
general labor, providing
information and col-
lecting, distributing,


preparing and serving
food.
There are so many local
activities that can use
your assistance. Make a
call; check the local paper
or library for opportuni-
ties to volunteer. You'll
help others and feel good
about what you are doing.
Resolve that in 2012
you will take the first step
on the path of service.
This is a resolution you
can keep.

Ann Favreau, an educa-
tor for 27years, currently
resides in Venice.

Unfortunately, the sand
fleas are very scarce.
Fiddlers seem to be the
bait of choice. I saw a few
sheepies caught at the

on fiddlers.
The pompano are still

use fiddlers or shrimp.
Pompano Dave jigs with

Generally, other fishing

It's allVenice coach John Flynn
wants from his team.
The Lady Indians provided
it but fell short of an upset in a
48-44 loss to Sarasota in a Class
7A-District 11 game at Venice
High.
"What a great job," said Flynn.
"You couldn't ask for better ef-
fort than that right there. That is
as good as it gets. It sort of feels
like a win. It does."
Venice (8-11 overall, 4-3 dis-
trict) had a lead or tie for nearly
24 minutes. In fact, the Lady
Indians, who lost to Sarasota,
67-31, in their first meeting, held
a 21-14 lead with 4:37 left in the
third quarter.
Then the Lady Sailors went on
a 14-0 scoring run over the next
three and a half minutes to grab
a 28-21 lead. Doing the damage
was guard Juliana Cavallaro, who
had six of the 14 points.
Last year, Cavallaro played
at Venice before transferring to
Sarasota for her senior year.
"We did a pretty good job,"
said Flynn. "We let a couple get
away. I think we are growing
every game."
Sarasota led 28-23 after three
quarters as the Lady Sailors out-
scored Venice, 16-8 in the third
quarter.
The advantage ballooned to
40-27 over the first four minutes
of the fourth quarter as Caval-
laro got hot and scored eight of
the Lady Sailors next 12 points.
Venice tried to come back by
fouling Sarasota.

score four points in the end.
"I thought we had some-

Flynn. "They deserve a good
win but at the same time, they
are going to have to learn that
you have to finish. You just
can't come out and play three
quarters of a game. Not against

Venice's Laura Hackett, who

WRESTLING DEFENSE SOAP DUALS


Venice wins four, grabs runner-up trophy


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

Venice High wrestling
coach Dan Kelly couldn't
have been more pleased
with his young team
following the Defense
Soap Duals Saturday at
Southeast High.
Sporting a lineup with
six freshmen, the Indi-
ans captured four of five
matches to bring home a
second-place trophy.
"I'm very pleased," said
Kelly. "I really wasn't sure
how the day would go. I
was really hoping to get
out of here with a win-
ning record. It was a good
tournament for us. The


dual meets haven't been
as strong as our individu-
al tournaments. This was
a good one for us.
"This year it's a grow-
ing year. That is all there
is to it. Six wrestlers are
freshmen and two have
been sick with the flu all
week and only practiced
Friday."
In pool play, Venice
used the strength of nine
forfeits to rout Riverview
75-3. In their second
match, the Indians won
half of their matches -
five by pin in a 38-24
victory over Palmetto.
Against Seffner Arm-
wood, Venice won eight
matches with six pins

and two forfeits for a 48-
32 win.
In the semifinals
against Tarpon Springs
East Lake, the Indians
used three forfeits and
five pins in nine victories
for a 51-27 rout.
In the championship,
the Indians only won four
matches as Lennard of
Ruskin used four pins,
forfeit and five decisions
to notch a 48-22 victory
to capture first place.
Three of Venice's four
wins were from wrestlers
who went 5-0 on the day
- Larsen Ullrich, Gar-
rett Johnson and Tommy
Carello. The other victory
was from Matt Parker,
who had a 4-1 record.


"We just matched up
very poorly with them. I
don't think they were a
better team than Arm-
wood but with Armwood
we matched up really
well," said Kelly. "We had
very poor match-ups and
we lost some of the close
ones."
All wrestlers who went
5-0 were named to the
All-Tournament team
and received medals.
In the 145-pound
weight class, Ullrich (23-
4) gutted it out to win all
five matches, with two
pins, two decisions and a
major decision.

100 percent but he did

first couple of matches
he was not feeling well.
I think he kind of hit his
stride after awhile and
felt better."
In the 195-pound
weight class, Johnson
had little trouble in his
matches as the senior
raised his record to 19-3
on the season. He won
two matches by forfeit,
then three others by pin
- two in the first period
and another in the sec-
ond period.
"Garrett is 10 times the
wrestler he was last year,"
said Kelly. "He's ranked
sixth in state and I think
he is going to be there

For the second consec-
utive tournament Carello
was unbeaten.
Before Christmas,
Carello (17-4) won all
seven matches in the
Southside Duals at Boca
Ciega.
Carello recorded wins
in three matches in the
220-pound weight class
by forfeit and the other
two by pin.
"Face it, you look at
him," said Kelly. "He is
kind of short. He doesn't
look like a traditional
220-pounder but he has
gone undefeated two
tournaments in a row.
Tommy has moves and
has done a great job."
Winning four of five
matches for the Indi-
ans were Parker at 113
pounds and Quinton
O'Brien at 220 pounds.
Parker (18-4) had two
pins, a major decision
and a forfeit victory.
His only setback was a
6-4 loss to Armwood's
Donovan Hough, who
is ranked No. 5 at 106
pounds in Class 2A.
"That kid is really
tough," said Kelly about
Hough. "He's placed in
national tournaments
and wrestled all over the
country. Parker had him.


outscoring Venice, 6-4 in
the second quarter.
Venice's defense lim-
ited Cavallaro to just two
points in the first half.
"Probably 24 of the
best minutes we played
all year," said Flynn. "De-
fensively we threw every-
thing we had at them. We
triangle-and-two, box-
and-one, played straight
man. We played zone. We
kept her (Cavallaro) away
from the basket in the
first half. However, good
players get to the basket."

VENICE DOWNS MANATEE:
Venice captured first place in five
weight classes to edge Manatee,
31-27, Friday night at Manatee High.
The dual was supposed to be a
tri-match but Palmetto pulled out.
Placing first for the Lady Indians
were Naomi Ball (110-pound
weight class), Ariel Gostischa (119),
Emma Hand (129), Amanda Kempf
(139) and Megan Quinn (199).
Picking up a second place for
Venice was Clare Roca (139) and

Resident gets impact fee refund from school board


By STEVEN J. SMITH
SUN CORRESPONDENT

The Sarasota County School
Board has authorized the reim-
bursement of $2,032 in school
impact fees to Cheryl Leutholt
after discovering she should not
have been assessed in the first
place, according to Ken Marsh,
the school district's director of
long-range planning.


Marsh said the impact fees
initially were assessed because
Leutholt was building a second
dwelling on a large piece of land
she owns in the unincorporated
area of Sarasota County.
"When she went to get her
certificate of occupancy, the
county determined that it was
not a replacement dwelling,
but an additional dwelling,
which therefore meant that she


had to pay all of the impact
fees," Marsh said this week.
That amount totaled $12,445,
of which $2,032 was awarded
to the school district as an
educational system impact fee.
Marsh said Leutholt initially
paid the entire amount.
"But the family appealed it,
and the appeal was based on the
fact that they believed it was a
replacement dwelling," he said.


"I guess they couldn't move out
of the first dwelling until the sec-
ond one had a CO. So it wasn't a
replacement dwelling until they
removed the kitchen from the
original dwelling, thereby mak-
ing it essentially a nondwelling,
according to county code."
Marsh said the county pro-
cessed reimbursement for the
$10,413 in fees that went to the
county, but could not reimburse


Leutholt for school impact fees
that already had been dispersed
to the school district.
'And I couldn't do it on my own
initiative," Marsh said. "The reim-
bursement had to be authorized
by the school board, so it required
an item on the consent agenda.
We've now written a check to this
lady and made it right."
Leutholt could not be reached
for comment.


CHURCH
FROM PAGE 1

about the development
of the property by First
Baptist Church ofVenice,
which proposes to have -
as part of a second campus
- a worship center, edu-
cation center, two softball
fields and a soccer field.
Concerns include noise,
lighting, traffic, hours of
operation and their nega-
tive impact on property


values. Church officials
committed to working with
Blue Heron Pond residents
on possible changes. They
agreed to a number of
stipulations, including
those related to night light-
ing, hours and crowd noise.
"It's in the best interest
of both parties to try to
resolve these unresolved
issues," Commissioner
Joe Barbetta said.
Some residents at the
meeting welcomed the
church's proposed wor-
ship center but not the ball


fields. About 15 people
spoke, most of whom
opposed the project. Blue
Heron Pond resident Nancy
Testa said she strongly dis-
agreed with the proposed
special exception.
"My concerns and the
concerns of a majority of
our neighborhood center
around the fact that the
church's plan calls for
three lighted ball fields
directly adjacent to our
property," she said. "In
my opinion it is unrea-
sonable to allow a special


(exception) to the existing
residential zoning for a
place of worship, when
approximately half of the
entire property is devoted
to baseball fields, a soccer
field, a fieldhouse, specta-
tor seating and lighted
parking for hundreds of
cars to serve the recre-
ational area."
Another Blue Heron
Pond resident compared
the proposed facility to
a buying a shiny new
vehicle to make her point.
"Let's think out of the


box for a minute, please,"
Irene Pinski said. "The
church wants to buy a new
car. They are having a little
problem with this muffler,
though. It's a little too loud.
And those fancy head-
lights? They go vertical,
up 35 to 40 feet, and they
shine bright, 360 degrees.
But this new car has square
wheels. They are not com-
patible to the car."
County staff informed
commissioners the zon-
ing district where the
church is located allows


for construction of ball
fields without the special
exception.
Testa's husband, Joe,
president of the Blue
Heron Pond Homeowners
Association, said of the
commissioners' decision:
"We welcome the church.
We don't welcome the ball
fields, especially ball fields
at night."
HOA members will
meet Monday to discuss
their options, including
suing the county.

that it's one of the few

"We have done our
best to let them know
these are not minis-

"Signing these forms is
not insignificant. If it was
ministerial then the city
clerk could sign it."
Rhodes said under the
new HUD scoring system
Venice has a good chance
to get funding. If Atlantic
Housing gets into the
tax-credit lottery it could
bump Venice's project.

Snook Haven Park is a 2.5-acre parcel located on the wild and scenic
Myakka River. Sarasota County acquired the park in 2006 to increase
public access to the waterfront. Historically, the site was a fishing camp.
The property consists of a two-story, single-family home, five
cottages, a restaurant, an entertainment stage area and boat- and
kayak-launching facilities. Canoe and kayak rentals, as well as scenic
guided river boat tours, are available.
Beautiful live oaks and river vistas abound, as well as alligators,
turtles, osprey and many other birds. With plentiful snook and tarpon,
it's a fishing hotspot.
It's located at 5000 E. Venice Ave., east of River Road.
Snook Haven's restaurant is open 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Mondays-Saturdays

Voting equipment to get pre-election tests


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER
With the Jan. 31 Republican
presidential preference primary
looming, Supervisor of Elec-
tions Kathy Dent has invited the
public to attend and observe the
logic and accuracy testing of the
county's voting and tabulation
equipment, according to infor-
mation provided by the county.
It will begin at 9 a.m. today
at Dent's office in the Sarasota
County Terrace Building, 2001
Adams Lane, Sarasota. No
other public testing sessions are
scheduled.


Public testing of the county's
automatic tabulation equipment
and reporting software prior
to each election is required by
Florida law to ensure accurate
operation. Officials today will
test a random sample of all the
tabulating equipment to be used
on Jan. 31.
Election equipment in Florida
was subject to nationwide scru-
tiny in 2000, when a vote by the
U.S. Supreme Court resulted
in George W. Bush winning the
state's electoral votes and being
elected president in a close race
against Al Gore.
Then, after Sarasota County


switched from punch-card
ballots and their contro-
versial hanging "chads" to
touch-scree electronic voting
in 2002, the 2006 congressional
election in Sarasota County was
disputed, due to the number of
undervotes in the 13th Congres-
sional District race between
Vern Buchanan and Christine
Jennings, which Buchanan won.
Sarasota County has used
optical-scan paper ballots since
2007, with few complaints.
Through this method, optical
scanners record votes on paper
ballots and send them electroni-
cally to Dent's office, where they


are tabulated. Paper ballots are
stored for 22 months following a
federal election.
"The voters appear confident
in the system and, in the event
of a challenge, we have paper
ballots available to recount,"
Dent said.
Since 2007, elections offices
have been required by state law
to manually recount paper ballots
from 2 percent of all of the pre-
cincts in one race of an election.
"We have always had accurate
results," Dent said.
Voter registration for the
Republican primary has ended.
Absentee voting continues. Any


registered voter in the state may
request an absentee ballot until
five days before the election.
"We can mail the ballot to
them and they can vote from the
convenience and comfort of their
home" and "mail it back in or
drop it off," Dent said. The ballot
must be in one of Dent's offices
no later than 7 p.m. Jan. 31.
Early voting will be conducted
from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Jan. 21-28
in Dent's offices the Terrace
Building in Sarasota, the Robert
L. Anderson Administration
Center on U.S. 41 in SouthVen-
ice and Biscayne Plaza on U.S.
41 in North Port.

Explore the sounds of reli-
gion from Buddhist temple
bells to the shofar that calls
Jews to prayer.
Music has long been part
of religious observances, and
even the method used to pass
on the stories. Psalms were
created originally as hymns or
songs.
"There is no question that
music is an important part of
faith," said Shirley Bascom,
president of the Venice Inter-
faith Community Association.
The association will pres-
ent a six-part program that
explores religious music of the
world's most prominent faiths
each Monday evening from
Jan. 16 through Feb. 20.
All of the association's pro-
grams will begin at 7 p.m. at
Unitarian Universalist Congre-
gation of Venice.
Soprano Deborah Berioli
was instrumental in assem-
bling the musicians and narra-
tors of the series. She will lead
off the program as guest artist
for the first session, Jan. 16.
She will present "Martin
Luther King Jr. Day Celebrated
in Music." Accompanying
Berioli is the Diversity Experi-
ence Choir, which is directed
by Derek Edward Weston. For
more information, visit www.
diversitysarasota.org.
On Jan. 23, Susan Slack,
using chanting and drums,
will present "A Musical Journey
From Africa through India."
Slack's program will cover
some 40,000 years of musical
celebrations and ceremonies.
She will bring several styles of
drums for her presentation.
Audience members will be
invited to join in on some of
the chants presented. For more
information on Slack, visit
www.susanslack.net.
Guest artist Dr. Juan de la
Sierra will perform on guitar
and as the narrator of the
Jan. 30 program, "Chiaroscuro,
Jewish Music of Old Spain."
The program will explore
flamenco and Sephardic music
and other music that came
out of the desert regions. Visit
www.musicofspain.net.
Berioli returns for the
Feb. 6 program, "Exploring
the Gregorian Chant." Among

Mass and present-day appli-
cations of the music that grew
from early chanting. Visit
www.veniceperformingarts.
com.
"Jewish Music From Tradi-
tional to Modern" is the title of
the Feb. 13 session, which will
feature cantors Joel Resnick
and MarciVitkus. Vitkus has
been the cantor of the Jew-
ish Center of Venice since
2001, often serving in the role
of rabbi for sabbath services
in the days when the center
did not have its own rabbi.
Reznick and Vitkus will speak
about "cantillation," which
is the methodology behind
singing Torah passages. They
will demonstrate examples of
traditional and modern music
as sung by cantors.
The final session, Feb. 20,
will be "Sound as Part of Asian
Meditation," featuring concert
pianist Dr. Hsai-Jung Chang.
Chang earned her doctorate
in musical arts at the Manhat-
tan School of Music. She has
been a guest lecturer at sev-
eral major universities in the
United States and China. She
will introduce the audience to
the use of sound in medita-
tion, specifically in Buddhist,
Taoist and Taiji traditions.

Chill out in 'Almost, Maine'


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
John Cariani's "Almost,
Maine" depicts small-
town America in a series
of vignettes performed
by four actors playing
five roles each.


The real pine trees
that are part of the set
add to the feeling that
one is almost in Maine,
possibly even in the
unincorporated town
of Almost, which, as
we learned on opening
night, earned its name


from being almost a
town.
Directed by Kelly
Woodland, this Stage
II production in the
Pinkerton Theatre at
Venice Theatre is totally
charming, sometimes
hilarious, often silly and


generally entertaining.
The actors are Jeremy
Guerrero, Jessica
Szempruch, Richard
Robertson and Rebecca
Phippard. Guerrero has
the most experience at
portraying multiple char-
acters, having performed


more than 30 characters
a few seasons back in
"I Am My Own Wife." In
that one he also had to
portray several accents
while switching genders
as well.
Phippard has worked
with Woodland in


the past and was
most recently seen as
Rennabelle in "Radio
Girls." As it did in that
show, Phippard's smile
lights up the stage, and
she is not afraid to really

JANUARY 11,2012


New FCAT 2.0 levels approved


FROM FLORIDA STATE
BOARD OF EDUCATION

For the first time in
10 years, the Florida
State Board of Education
Dec. 19 approved new
achievement level scores
for grades three to 10 in
reading and grades three
to eight mathematics
on the annual FCAT 2.0
assessments.
Since Florida began
administering the FCAT
in 1998, data from read-
ing and math have been
used to gauge student
achievement and to
identify policy changes
needed to link learning
to best practices. These
new achievement scores
improve the movement
that has kept Florida at
the forefront of learn-
ing and achievement
for more than a decade


and will better prepare
Florida students for col-
lege or a job after high
school.
"A good education and
the ability to get a job
are inextricably linked,
and as a student whose
family lived in public
housing and struggled
financially, I know how
important both of those
things are," said Gov.
Rick Scott. "I commend
the board of education
for approving these
standards today. This is
a positive step toward
making Florida's educa-
tion system the best in
the country."
For four months,
Florida educators, higher
education, business and
community leaders, in
partnership with the
FDOE, participated in an
achievement-level-


creation process known
as "setting cut scores."
This process requires
FDOE to establish
mathematics achieve-
ment-level scores for
grades three to eight,
including an End-Of-
Course Algebra 1 assess-
ment, and reading
achievement-level scores
in grades three to 10,
which includes a pass-
ing score for high school
graduation.
FCAT 2.0 achievement
scores provide a frame-
work of expectations for
reporting how much stu-
dents learn in each grade
level to teachers, parents
and other stakeholders.
"On behalf of the state
board of education,
I would like to thank
Education Commissioner
Gerard Robinson and
his leadership, both with


his DOE team as well as
with the many important
external participants,
which ensured meaning-
ful stakeholder participa-
tion in the decision mak-
ing process," said state
Board of Education Chair
Kathleen Shanahan.
"Our goal as a board is
to ensure the students in
Florida's education pro-
cess have every chance
to succeed in our global
economy."
The achievements
approved include the
following criteria for pre-
paring public high school
students for college or a
career:
Grade 10 reading
score of 245 in Level 3
satisfies the reading
assessment standard for
high school graduation.
Grade 10 reading
score of 262 in Level 4,


and maintaining a "B"
average, allows a student
to enroll in dual enroll-
ment credit-bearing
courses with credit for
those college courses in
the subject area, bypass
the P.E.R.T. test and
enroll in a Florida Col-
lege System institution
without taking a remedi-
ation course in reading.
The Algebra I End-
Of-Course assessment
includes two important
scores: Level 3 as pass-
ing and Level 4 as high
achieving and potential
to be college ready by
the time of high school
graduation.
"I support the new cut
scores because they aim
high, and are designed
to prepare our students
to be ready to live and
work in a competitive
world," said State Board


of Education Vice Chair
Bobby Martinez. "Our
decision reflects what
we want for our students
and is solidly grounded
on the extensive work of
a lengthy and transpar-
ent process informed by
educators familiar with
students' abilities and
the content assessed and
with the professional
input of key stakeholder
groups."
"In order to con-
tinue moving Florida
in a direction to better
prepare our students
for successful participa-
tion in a competitive
learning-and-earning
society, we must remain
diligent in setting good
standards," said Rob-
inson. "Today's action
keeps Florida students
on a path to be globally
competitive."

WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

A A10 9 7652 60 Void 4AJ 1073

What is your opening bid?

A If you decided to open four
spades, you could easily be missing a
slam. Start with a simple one spade
opening bid and keep bidding as long
as partner responds!

Q 2 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

AAKJ10652 830 AQ652

What is your opening bid?

A In first or second seat, open one
spade and let the auction proceed
normally. In third and fourth seat,
since partner has already passed, we
would open with a four-spade pre-
empt.

Q 3 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

S95 KQ70 AKJ7 4 AQ72

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

A An awkward hand. You do not
want to bid no trump and find the
opponents running six tricks in
spades when you are cold for game in
any other denomination, and you
don't want to jump raise hearts with
only three-card support. The solution
is to tell a mild lie about your distri-
bution and reverse with two-dia-
monds (of course, that's forcing), and
hear what partner has to say.

Q 4 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

a 9 9 Q 9 7 3 0 Q 8 5 a AJ10 8 6

The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST


Pass 1NT
Pass ?


Pass


What do you bid now?

A Your one no trump response has
limited your hand. You have great
values to give partner a little push.
Invite partner by bidding three hearts
and you will be delighted if he can
continue to game. If not, three hearts
should be a fine contract.

Q 5 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:

A AK10 9 5 A J 96 0 K 105 4 6


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
16 Pass 1NT

What do you bid now?


EAST
Pass


A Whether you play forcing no
trump or not, you have a good mini-
mum, but still a minimum. Unless
partner cooperates, don't turn a plus
score into a minus. Bid two hearts,
and await partner's reaction.

Q 6 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

SAK10 7 6 2 9 7 6 4 AJ32


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
14 Pass 26

What action do you take?


EAST
Pass


A It is not so much how much part-
ner has as what he holds. Give part-
ner a red-suit king among his high
cards, and it could be worthless, but
the king of clubs could be worth two
tricks! Make a trial bid of three clubs,
and see how partner reacts.

Dreams do come true
Several years ago, when Debo-

at the Church of the Nazarene as
audiences enjoyed "Amahl and

At a time when lavish pro-

production told a simple story

Congestive heart failure

means heart is a weak pump


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I am 79 and have conges-
tive heart failure with
some high blood pressure.
Please give the informa-
tion you have on my
illness. EW
ANSWER: Congestive
heart failure is a common
illness in older people.
Up to 10 percent of those
older than 65 have it or
have had it. The meaning
is that the heart has be-
come so weak that it can't
pump enough blood to
support all body organs
and tissues. You can call
it just heart failure. The
"congestive" word con-
fuses people.
The signs of a weak-
ened heart are breath-
lessness when trying to
do even relatively easy
physical tasks, along with
a feeling that all energy
has left the body. A third
sign is swelling, most
often of the feet and
ankles. The lungs also fill
with fluid from backed-
up blood, and that adds
to the breathing difficulty.
The lungs are congested
with fluid.
Clogged heart arteries,
heart-valve problems, a
previous heart attack, a
former viral heart infec-
tion and uncontrolled
high blood pressure are
some of the causes of
heart failure. Aging is a
major cause. The heart is
beginning to wear out.
This sounds hope-
less; it isn't. Plenty can
be done. For one, reduce
the amount of salt and
salty foods that you eat.
Salt causes fluid reten-
tion in the body. Water
pills (diuretics) remove
excess body fluid, and
they're a constant part of
treatment. Drugs called
ACE inhibitors not only
regulate blood pressure,
but they also ease heart
failure. This is only a
sample of the drugs that
are useful for the treat-
ment of this condition.
Once under treatment,
you ought to be breath-
ing with ease and feel a
return of pep. An exercise
program is then possible
and an essential for treat-
ment. The program is one
that should be devised by
your doctor. Walking is an
excellent way to strength-
en both body and heart
muscles.
The booklet on conges-
tive heart failure provides
detailed information on
the condition and its
treatment. Readers can
order a copy by writing:
Dr. Donohue No. 103,
Box 536475, Orlando, FL

cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6
Can. with the recipient's
printed name and ad-
dress. Please allow four
weeks for delivery.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
My husband's behavior
has me concerned. He
had a flare-up of his ul-
cerative colitis six months
ago and began exhibiting
obsessive-compulsive be-
havior handwringing
and repeatedly rubbing
his mouth with the back
of his hand. His father is
obsessive-compulsive. My
husband also has added
four more touching be-
haviors, and he refuses to
have his hair cut. Will this
progress? I'm at my wits'
end. S.N.
ANSWER: An obses-
sion is a recurring idea
or thought that brings
anxiety and fear. A com-
pulsion is a repetitive be-
havior done to relieve the
anxiety generated by the
fearful thought. It takes
many forms constant
hand washing, repeated
checking to make sure
the oven is off, touching
things in a stereotypical
way.
If O-C disorder interferes
with a person's life or im-
pedes his job performance,
that person should seek
expert advice. Techniques
exist to combat this illness.
(It is an illness.) Cognitive
behavior therapy helps
root out the obsession.
Deliberately recalling the
feared thought without re-
sorting to a ritual to abol-
ish it is another therapy.
And medicines can be
helpful. Your husband is
ruining his life and his
family's life over something
that is treatable.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
Two weeks ago, I contract-
ed a cold. It's gone, except
for a troublesome cough,
which is worse at night. I
read in an issue of AARP
Bulletin that a spoonful
of honey at bedtime often
gives better results than
cough medicines. I tried it.
The results were noth-
ing less than miraculous.
What do you say about this
remedy? EB.
ANSWER: I say stick
with it. Honey has been
used for many years to
suppress coughing. It's
even given to babies older
than one year.

Seniors should avoid these foods


Dear Readers: Did you
know there are certain
foods seniors should avoid
because of health risks?
According to the Food
and Drug Administration
website (www.fda.gov), if
you are a senior or care
for a senior, you might not
realize that you need to be
extra cautious about:
Raw sprouts, such as
alfalfa, clover and radishes.
Refrigerated pates or
meat spreads.
Refrigerated smoked
seafood, unless it is an in-
gredient in a cooked dish
like a casserole.
Raw or unpasteurized
milk and soft cheeses like
feta, brie, Camembert and
Mexican-style (which I
love!).
Raw or lightly cooked
egg, or egg products
containing raw eggs, such
as salad dressings, cookie
or cake batter, sauces or
drinks like eggnog.
Hot dogs and luncheon
meats, unless they are re-
heated to steaming-hot.
Unpasteurized or un-
treated fruit or vegetable
juice.
Additionally, no raw
meat, poultry, raw fin
fish or shellfish should be
consumed. You can go to
the FDAs website (or ask
your health-care provider
for suggestions) for more
important information on
food safety for everyone in
your household! Heloise
P.S.: More fun facts are
on my Twitter and Face-
book pages. Please go to

Hints from Heloise

Spaghetti squash
Dear Readers: Is spa-
ghetti squash a vegetable or
a funky type of pasta? How
well do you know your veg-
gies? It's a winter squash!
A very healthy choice
if you want to cut calo-
ries but eat well, 1 cup of
cooked spaghetti squash,
with no salt added, con-
tains approximately 42 cal-
ories. This squash is high in
fiber and can be prepared
any number of differ-
ent ways: baked, boiled,
microwaved or even in a
slow cooker. This squash
can be found year-round,
but fall and winter are its
peak seasons. It keeps well
at room temperature and
can be stored in the freezer
after cooking.
After cooking, scrape the
meaty strands of squash
out of the shell with a fork
and then be creative with
your favorite toppings. Try
substituting these spa-
ghettilike strands in any of
your favorite pasta dishes
and serve with butter,
garlic, shredded cheese or
a favorite sauce. Heloise
P.S.: I love it cold and
dressed with a little oil
and vinegar.

Addiction to po

for teen and
DEAR ABBY: I have been
dating "Kyle" for more than
six months, but I have
loved him for more than
two years. I always thought
we had a wonderful
relationship and that Kyle
was a sweet, innocent guy.
Well, he just confided to
me that he has an Internet
porn addiction! I'm very
hurt by this and don't want
to lose him. What should I
do? (By the way, we're both
14.) INNOCENT TEEN
IN MICHIGAN
DEAR INNOCENT TEEN:
You should urge Kyle to
get help for his addiction.
Addiction, by definition, is
behavior that is compul-
sive and out of control.
The problem with teen-
age boys getting involved
with Internet porn is it
gives them an unrealistic
expectation of how regular,
normal women look and
act. Although you don't
want to lose him, becom-
ing more involved could
lead to his wanting to try
out his sexual fantasies
with you and if you go
along with it, it will land
you in a world of trouble.
The smart thing to do is
end this relationship now.
DEAR ABBY: My daugh-
ter "Denise's" fiance is 12
years older than she is and
still lives with his parents.
"Leo" is turning Denise
into his mother.
I first noticed it when
she cut her beautiful long
hair short and in the same
style as his motherAt a re-
cent gathering I remarked
to Leo, "Wow, Denise looks
more like your mother
than she does me." After
that, our relationship
soured. Was I wrong? -
CREEPED OUT IN CALI-
FORNIA
DEAR CREEPED OUT:
No. But you may have said
it to the wrong person.
You should have said it to
your daughter, who may
be doing it because she
thinks Leo's mother has
great taste. Denise could
also be consciously or
unconsciously doing this
to please him.

Dear Abby

nesters. We both work and
live far from our kids and
grandkids. I have wanted
to move closer to them,
but I also understand we
need to meet our goals for
a secure retirement.
The problem is, I'm
lonely and I think my hus-
band is, too. My solution
to help myself feel better is
to get a dog. My husband,
however, doesn't want
one. He wants to wait until
"later" whenever that is.
I think a pet would make
me leave work earlier and
force both of us to get out
of the house.
Am I being unreasonable
or silly? I want my husband
to be a part of raising a pet
and, perhaps, participate
in some obedience train-
ing. I'm trying my best
to persuade him without
being a nag, but I'm begin-
ning to feel like a little kid
who's begging "Daddy"
for a puppy. I'd appreciate
some advice. PINING
FOR A PUPPY IN TEXAS
DEAR PINING: Before
embarking on a "pet"
project, don't you think
you should first find out
what may be causing
your husband's behav-
ior? While a dog could
work wonders and help
you both be more active,
between his job and the
weekend chores, taking
a puppy to obedience
training may be too much
for him. If he's not up to
it, would you be willing to
shoulder that task. I don't
recommend bringing a
dog into your lives unless
your husband agrees.
And if he doesn't, please
consider volunteering
a few days a month at
an animal shelter or pet
rescue kennel.


"Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth,
where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves
break through and steal. But lay up for yourselves
treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth
corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor
steal. For where your treasure is, there will your heart
be also." Matthew 6:19-21.
Send as much as you can ahead by the giving of
yourself and means to earthly causes for Christ. It's
the safest investment!

Opening lead: Queen of 4

Barring a 5-0 heart split, there are
nine easy tricks at three no trump.
However, we would be prepared to
wager that 99 percent of bridge play-
ers would reach four hearts. After all,


at rubber bridge you get 100 honors!
West attacked with the queen of
clubs. East rose with the ace and
returned the jack, covered by the king
and ruffed by West, who got off lead
with a trump.
Declarer had lost two tricks and
was looking at two club losers. He
found an ingenious way to get rid of
one of them which could succeed if
West held the king of diamonds.
Declarer drew all the trumps,
cashed the aces of diamonds and
spades and continued with the jack of
spades, overtaking with the queen in
dummy. Next, declarer led dummy's
queen of diamonds, discarding the
king of spades from hand.
Down to nothing but spades and
diamonds, West had to put dummy on
lead. No matter which suit West
leads, dummy scores the top spade
and diamond and declarer has 10
tricks.

Venice celebrates


its 85th anniversary

icking off the year-long celebration of the 85th anniversary

of Venice is a multi-faceted event at the Lord-Higel House in
Venice this Saturday,
Dubbed Pioneer Days. The event begins at 10 a.m. with dem-
onstrations of such early pioneer crafts as candle making, quilting,
knitting, boat building and glass blowing. Food and beverages will
be available for purchase beginning at 11 a.m.
At 11:30 a.m. Venice Theatre will present an original one-act
play by its resident playwright, Ron Myroup. Bring your own seating
for the play. The same chairs that were on the streets of Venice for
days before the most recent parade will do just fine. What is not to
love about a town where one can put chairs out three or four days
before such an event to hold one's place and the chairs will not be
touched, let along moved or "borrowed."
Historic Spanish Point will bring one a hand-made boat and boat
builders to discuss that aspect of pioneer life.
In keeping with this event, there will be an exhibit of pioneer
needlework in the Triangle Inn but you will have to return to Venice
another day to see it for Saturday, all the action will be at the Lord-
Higel House, 409 Granada Ave., behind city hall.
The Triangle Inn, 351 S. Nassau St. is open from 10 a.m. to 4
p.m. Monday-Wednesday.
"Almost, Maine,' a Stage II comedy continues through Jan. 22 in
the Pinkerton Theatre at Venice Theatre. On the main stage, a musi-
cal, "Smokey Joe's Cafe" plays through Jan. 29. Call 941-488-1115.
Also this weekend, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Miami Avenue. there
will be a craft fair.

SeaWorld offers festival


BY KIM COOL

Finally a festival Just For Kids" at Sea-
World Orlando.
While parents visit Shamu, the kids can
do their own thing at special concerts sched-
uled every Saturday through Feb. 4, featuring
LazyTown, Max & Ruby, the Doodlebops and
Choo-Choo Soul.
Florida residents are the big winners. For the
price of a one-day park ticket, Floridians can
acquire a Fun Card good for park admission for
the entire year, including the four Saturdays set
aside for the Just For Kids Festival.
There are even fun events for kids too little to
be on their own at SeaWorld and to sweeten the
deal for their parents, Parents can rent strollers
for half-price on event days. Better yet, with a
paying adult on those days, kids enjoy an all-day
dining deal, sky tower ride, free penguins and
dolphins up-close or a behind-the-scenes tour.
At the Saturday event, healthy lifestyles will be
the subject addressed by Stephani, Sportacus
and others in LazyTown.
Sibling relationships will be the center of atten-
tion in Max & Ruby's Musical Playdate on Jan. 21.
Groove with the Doodlebops on Jan. 28,
featuring rock stars DeeDee, Rooney and Moe
performing their favorite songs and silliest jokes.
Feb. 4, Genevieve Goings performs Choo-

PROVIDED BY THE BROADWAY PALM
DINNER THEATRE
Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre presents
"Me and My Girl" through Feb. 11.
This toe-tapping musical explores
slapstick humor alongside a feel-good love
story.
Bill Snibson finds himself to be the
unlikely heir to the Earl of Hareford. In order
to collect his inheritance he must learn to be a
proper gentleman and satisfy the executors of the
estate.
The Duchess feels she can help Snibson and
make him "fit and proper" but she doesn't think
there's any hope for his cockney girlfriend.
They attempt to educate Snibson into the ways
of the gentry and separate him from his cockney
girlfriend and the result is chaos of the most
comical kind.
Performances are Tuesday through Sunday
evenings with selected matinees.
Ticket prices range from $27 to $51 with
group discounts available for parties of
20 or more.
Tickets can be reserved by calling
239- 278-4422, by visiting

Jimmy Mazz and Patrick Tobin bring


Sinatra and Martin to the stage


PROVIDED BY THE CULTURAL CENTER

Jimmy Mazz and Patrick Tobin bring Frank
Sinatra and Dean Martin to the stage in
"One for the Road" at 7 p.m. Thursday at the
Cultural Center.
Tobin's look of a young Sinatra is appreciated


and amplified by his low vocal resonance as he
belts out hit after hit.
Mazz portrays Martin's signature look,
swagger and that smooth vocal style as
he sings the hits and many of the great
one-liners and jokes that made Martin
a phenomenon.


Together these two bring back old Vegas and a
new twist or two.
Tickets are $13 for members and $15 for
nonmembers.
The Cultural Center is located at 2280 Aaron
St., Port Charlotte. For more information, call
941-625-4175.

Venice Theatre presents winter musical


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
ewly opened at Venice Theatre is the
Broadway review, "Smokey Joe's Cafe,"
which plays through Jan. 29 on the
theater's main stage.
Written by Jerry Lieber and Mike Stoller,
"Smokey Joe's" is filled with songs so well-known
that many in the audience may want to sing along
with the cast. Remember "Hound Dog," "Kansas
City," "On Broadway" and "Love Potion No. 9?"
"I knew all about Leiber and Stoller," Ray
Charles said about the writers, according to a
press release from Venice Theatre. "They were
those bad white boys who wrote the blackest
songs this side of the Mississippi. I loved what
they did.'
The Broadway record holder for revues,
with 5,685 performances from 1995 to 2000, is
directed and choreographed at Venice by Brad
Wages who did the same for the 2010/2011
season's show "Ragtime." It was in that show
that the theater discovered the talent of
Kristofer Geddie who was brought to Venice to
play Coalhouse Walker. Not only was the show
the hit of the season but since that time Geddie
was hired as the theater's first Director of Diver-
sity. In 2011 he was on stage again to more good
reviews in "Falsettos."
Also appearing with Geddie are other Venice
Theatre regulars Colleen Sudduth, Melissa


Brandon Michael Fleming (left) and Kristofer Geddie
are goin'to Kansas City in"Smokey Joe's Caf4"
Cripps and Brandon Michael Fleming. Joining
them is Syreeta Banks who won kudos for her
Gospel solo in last fall's production of "Big River'"
Also in the cast are Tatum Harvey, Albert Jen-
nings, Edwin Watson and Jared Weldon. Several
members of the cast have been in this show else-
where. Sets are by Chris Parrish with costumes
by Nicholas Hartman.
Michelle Kasanofsky is the musical director
Performances are at 8 p.m.Tuesday through
Saturday and at 2 p.m. on Sundays.
Tickets are $12 to $15 for students and $24-
$27 for adults. Order online at www.venicestage.

World-class dancers to compete in Sarasota


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Dancesport will not be in the Athens Olym-
pics Games but one day, it might be.
Until then, the place to see world-class
ballroom dancers is in places such as Sarasota,
home of the Fourth Annual Sarasota Ballroom
Dance Competition Saturday Sunday.
It took more than 50 years for the Olympics
to include dance in the list of ice skating events
because public opinion was that events that are
pleasant to watch must not be athletic. Dances-
port seems to be running into the same problem
as it tries to become part of the summer games,
despite the rigorous training its participants
endure on their road to success.
Dancesport competitions are tests of endur-
ance for participants who must be able to perform
as many as 10 different dances before judges
in a limited span of time that could easily do in
anyone not in perfect shape.
The Sarasota event will feature current profes-
sional champions Nikolai Pilipenchuk & Natalia
Skorikova in addition to several other world-
class dancers such as World 10 Dance (Waltz,


Tango, Slow Foxtrot, Viennese Waltz, Quickstep,
Cha- Cha, Samba, Rumba, Pasodoble & Jive)
Professional Champions Nikolai Pilipenchuk and
Natalia Skorikova, current United States 9 Dance
(Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot, Viennese Waltz, Cha-
Cha, Rumba, Swing, Bolero & Mambo) Profes-
sional Champions Peter and Alexandra Perzhu
and former U.S. champions Thomas and Izabella
Lewandowski.
The Sarasota event was organized by local
dance champion, coach and world judge Sid
(Zydrunas) Pocius. Some of the champions pres-
ent for the event have, in addition to winning their
titles, appeared on PBS dance shows and on the
major network show "Dancing With the Stars."
In addition to the competition, dancers will par-
ticipate in seminars led by the champions men-
tioned above. Saturday, there will be solo dance
events, showcases and a professional show.
Sunday there will be competitions in amateur and
professional categories for dancers from all over
the U.S. who will perform before world ranked
adjudicators. Sunday evening, the weekend will
be capped by the professional division: "So You
Think Professionals Can Dance"

The tribute is a high-kicking, hard-rocking,
nail-biting, cat-fighting, film-faking, tight-fitting,
foot-stomping, dance-crazed, powerhouse perfor-
mance of a show.


This is a live show there is no preprogammed
electronic disco or backtracks. What you see are
master blues men at their craft.
Even the most skeptical of audience members
will be on their feet dancing.
With songs by Ray Charles, Cab Calloway,
John Lee Hooker, Aretha Franklin, James Brown,
and Booker T & the MGs, how could it be any-
thing other than a musical extravaganza?

The Ken Loomer Trio: Keeping jazz alive


BY CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Jazz lovers who enjoy listening to new ar-
rangements of great jazz standards will want to
hear the Ken Loomer Trio when they play at
2 p.m. on Thursday at the Venice Art Center.
This trio has been together for only five years,
but all three musicians have had years of experi-
ence touring the U.S. in big bands, jazz groups,
and musical theater productions. According to
Ken Loomer, "We (jazz lovers) must do what it
takes to keep jazz alive."
The Ken Loomer Jazz Trio features Ken
Loomer on drums, Tony Castellano on piano,
and Franco Marino on tenor saxophone. What
distinguishes their sound from other swing/
society/jazz bands in the area, Loomer says, is
the "sound and personality of the musicians and
strong soloists."
Castellano plays both piano and bass. He uses
a bass keyboard to play the bass lines to produce


a unique and exciting sound. Castellano also
sings in the Sinatra, Tony Bennett style.
Marino, a former actor who performed in televi-
sion shows in the'70's and '80's, plays tenor sax
with the Ken Loomer Trio and other area groups.
Loomer hails from Hartford, Conn.where he
began working with great trumpet artist Clark
Terry He went on to perform with bands in Broad-
way shows before relocating to the Tampa Bay
area in the 1970s.
For eight years Loomer was house drummer
at the Jazz Cellar inYbor City, backing up top
jazz artists such as Mose Allison, Connie Haines,
and Richie Cole. He also toured with the Tommy
Dorsey band when Warren Covington was the
leader. Currently he heads his own Ken Loomer
Big Band consisting of 15 area musicians who
play in the style of Count Basie, Buddy Rich, and
Woody Herman. In October, the Ken Loomer Big
Band performed at the Clearwater Jazz Holiday
Festival. In November, they performed at the Loft


Ristobar in Sarasota.
The Venice Art Center is located at 390
Nokomis Ave., S., Venice. Admission is $10 for
nonmembers and $5 for South County Jazz Club
members.
For more information, call 941-485-7136.
The South County Jazz Club is dedicated to
presenting live jazz music for the Englewood,
North Port, and Venice Communities. The club
sponsors a jazz jam session from 5:30 p.m. to
8:30 p.m. on Tuesdays at Snook Haven, 5000 E.
Venice Ave., Venice. Musicians may bring their
instruments and be prepared to jam.There is no
admission fee.
The South County Jazz Club is a non-profit

tion, performance, partnering, and community

Conservatory for Actor Training presents 'Lobby Hero'


PROVIDED BY THE ASOLO CONSERVATORY
FOR ACTOR TRAINING
Sexual jealousy, police corruption, racial
defensiveness and a clumsy yearning for
honor all play a part in this very funny and
moving play by one of America's most engaging
playwrights.
"The best new American drama of the first
decade of this century," said a reviewer in the
NewYork Times about "Lobby Hero" by Kenneth
Lonergan.
Lonergan, author of the acclaimed plays, "This


Is OurYouth,' and "The Waverly Gallery," and the
Oscar-nominated film, "You Can Count on Me,"
has been called "the new golden boy of stage and
screen" by "The NewYork Times." His 2001 play,
"Lobby Hero," was nominated for the Outer Crit-
ics Circle Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway
Play, and tells the story of Jeff, a young security
guard for a Manhattan apartment building who is
attempting to put his life back together after being
thrown out of the military. He ends up becoming
involved with a murder investigation involving his
supervisor and a rookie policewoman who is in


over her head with her corrupt cop partner. "The
NewYork Times" calls it "The best new American
drama of the first decade of this century."
"Lobby Hero" is a wonderfully suspenseful
comic drama, with complex characters who keep
surprising themselves and the audience,' says
Brendon Fox, a guest professor at FSU/Asolo
Conservatory, and director of this production. "It's
a witty and honest look at ethical dilemmas any-
one can relate to. What do we owe to ourselves
and to those who care about us?"
The production will showcase the talents of


second-year Conservatory students.
The Asolo Conservatory of Actor Training pro-
duction will be presented through Jan. 22 at the
Cook Theatre in the FSU Center for the Perform-
ing Arts, 5555 North Tamiami Trail, Sarasota.
Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, 8
p.m. Wednesday through Saturdays and at 2
p.m. Sunday.
Tickets are $28 evenings; $27 matinees and
can be purchased at the Asolo Rep's box office at
the FSU Center for Performing Arts or by calling
941-351-8000.

The menu, created by owner Chuck Urso,

Urso's background is health and fitness and
he chose to open his restaurant because he
wanted to share his knowledge and health-

Urso has found a way to serve stone oven
baked wraps, flatbread pizzas, salads, smoothies
and healthy drinks including, a green tea special

The island chicken is a house specialty that is
a unique chicken salad with red and yellow pa-

cranberry craisens that shows off the restaurant's
creativity and versatility.
The cafe also offers classic Italian meat and

Singer/songwriter and master of slide

guitar to perform at Icehouse Pub


BY SHIRLEY GEORGE
SUN CORRESPONDENT
John Emil has delivered show stopping
performances at major music festivals
in the Midwest, eastern states, and many
venues in Florida. Among his numerous appear-
ances are the South Florida Folk Fests in Fort
Lauderdale and the Decatur Blues and Bluegrass
Festival in Decatur, Ga., Telluride Blues and
Brews Fest in Telluride, Colo. and Lake Oconee
Music Fest in Madison, Ga.
Equally adept with the acoustic Hawaiian lap
steel guitar and dobra (a resonator guitar), Emil
first appeared on the South Florida music scene
in 2000. Fans hear haunting, subtle hints of Delta
bluesmen "Son House and Blind Willie Johnson"
However, Emil ultimately creates a unique style
all his own by integrating country blues, folk,
bluegrass and lush Hawaiian sounds into his
repertoire.
Routinely taking the lost art of slide guitar in
a new direction, Emil has composed a wealth
of slide guitar tracks for media production
libraries. His instrumental tracks have been
published by "LA Post Music in Los Angeles,"
"Westar Music in Canada" and "Strange Fruit in
South Africa"'
Recently, Emil became the first American
musician published by "KPM Music in London,"
one of the world's largest production libraries.

Emil has supplied music for many television
and cable network shows such as NBC's
"Dateline," Travel Channel's Anthony Bourdain

Ed Glennon -The Back Eddy Bistro


BY BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
If you fish, or grew up around the water, you
may already understand the significance of
this lively Venice bistro's name. A back eddy is
a strong current that runs in the opposite direc-
tion of the main current. It's no coincidence that
Back Eddy was also the nickname Ed Glennon's
friends had given him years ago.
That's why Ed and Allyson Glennon chose the
name for their restaurant on Miami Avenue in
Venice when they opened it in 2008.
Ed, a graduate of The Culinary Institute of
America, is the chef and co-owner of The Back
Eddy Bistro. His wife Allyson, also co-owner,
manages the rest of running the bistro and also
pitches in whenever necessary as server, line or
prep cook and making desserts.
Ed and Allyson grew up in the Hamptons, in a
fishing and farming area called Shinnecock Inlet.


Though they didn't know each other then, both
developed a love of freshly prepared food from
fresh ingredients. Ed later worked as a top chef in
the Hamptons and in NewYork City.
Their motto, as displayed on their website
www.backeddybistro.com, is Ed's philosophy of
"start with fresh, end with delicious."
"We make everything fresh, with fresh
ingredients; we have no microwave,' said Allyson.
Allyson's specialty is their homemade ice cream;
from chai cinnamon one day to white chocolate
coconut on another.
Ed's creative take on cuisine comes from the
more than 20 years he and Allyson spent as pri-
vate chefs to such celebrities as Rupert Murdoch,
Jimmy Buffet, Neil Young and others.
"When you're a private chef, you're competing
with top restaurants and other dinner parties all
the time, and your food has to impress,' explained
Ed. So the duck breast a customer favorite is


encrusted with pistachios and served with a
grilled pear. Another favorite, the Thai beef salad,
is served over Asian vegetables with a three-chili
lime sauce.
Though they sound fancy, his food all starts
with the basics that he learned in his training,
said Ed. He also employs two Culinary Institute
of America graduates who help keep the kitchen
organized and running smoothly, ensuring that
food is prepared correctly and in timely fashion.
"The food is so good,' said Allyson, "that we
have to be sure the rest of the restaurant is up
to the standard of the food the service, the
entertainment, the atmosphere"
They describe their food as "eclectic Ameri-
can,' since American cuisine now encompasses
everything from Southwestern to Asian special-
ties, Ed explained. Their Sunday brunch menu,
for example, includes both eggs Benedict and
huevos rancheros, as well as the option of two


Chef Ed Glennon puts an unusual spin on his
dishes from his years as a private chef to celebri-
ties such as Rupert Murdoch and Jimmy Buffet.

January movies that could be fun


BY RAFER GUZMAN
NEWSDAY
I realize that January is unofficially known as
Bad Movie Month, a dumping ground for films
too weak to compete during busier seasons.
You definitely don't see many January releases
go on to sweep the Oscars. This is a time for
second-rate genre pictures horror flicks, rom-
coms, actioners.
In January, the movies become fun again. After
a long autumn of wrestling with deep subjects like
the nature of power ("J. Edgar") and the attacks
of 9/11 ("Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close"),
we can start asking other pressing questions:
Can Dolly Parton beat Queen Latifah in a gospel
sing-off in "Joyful Noise" (Friday)? Why don't
more movies have easy-to-grasp titles like "Man
on a Ledge" (Jan. 27)?
I think of January as a remnant of the old
B-movie tradition, in which the big-budget
A-feature came with a smaller and sometimes
more enjoyable B-grade picture. Hollywood long
ago stopped selling two movies for one ticket, but
the B's come back to life each January. In 1992,
Curtis Hanson's gleefully over-the-top thriller "The
Hand That Rocks the Cradle" (released Jan. 10)
became a surprise success, grossing $88 million;
in 2008, "Cloverfield" (Jan. 18) pleased audiences
and critics alike with a stylish mix of sci-fi and
horror; in 2010, the samurai-Western 'The Book
of Eli" (Jan. 15) became one of my favorite guilty
pleasures, a devil-may-care mix of quasi-theology
and comic-book action.
Here are five flicks I'm looking forward to
seeing this month. I can't promise that they'll
be any good, but I'm positive they'll be more
fun than "J. Edgar'.
"Contraband" (Friday). This looks like Crime
Flick 101, with Mark Wahlberg (exposing his abs
even in the poster) as a former criminal reluctant-

ly taking one last job. It's a remake of the 2009
Icelandic film "Reykjavik-Rotterdam" and directed
by that film's star, Baltasar Kormakur. With Kate
Beckinsale, Giovanni Ribisi and Ben Foster ("The
Messenger").
"Haywire" (Jan. 20). Ever since Steven
Soderbergh's cool crime thriller "Out of Sight"
(1998), I've been waiting for his return to the
action genre. Now comes this zippy-looking
entry, starring mixed martial arts fighter Gina
Carano as a freelance dirty-deeds agent. The
intriguing cast includes Michael Fassbender and
Ewan McGregor and Michael Douglas, too?
I'm there.
"Red Tails" (Jan. 20). Cuba Gooding Jr. stars in
a true-ish story about the Tuskeegee Airmen, the
all-black squadron of World War II fighter pilots.
I'm hoping for less historical drama, more explo-
sions, especially since the script comes from
two comic-book authors, Aaron McGruder ('The
Boondocks") and John Ridley ('The American
Way").
"The Grey" (Jan. 27). Somehow, 59-year-old
Liam Neeson has become a rather convincing
action hero, even if his recent films ("Taken,"
"Unknown") haven't quite matched his intensity.
In this movie, he and a planeful of others are

That "tale as old as time, song as old as
rhyme" returns to the screen, now in 3-D.
But "Beauty and the Beast,' the greatest ani-
mated film ever made and one of the screen's great
musicals, hardly needs this sort of sprucing up.
A timeless French fairytale about a cruel young
man cursed to live as a beast in his enchanted
home if he cannot change and be worthy of an-
other's love, it features sparkling wit, lovely songs,
stunning animation, terrific vocal performances
by Paige O'Hara and Robby Benson as the leads,
and just enough Disney cute to earn that over-
used label "masterpiece.'
There's marvelous new depth of field to the im-
ages flowers or rain or snow in the foreground
- in many scenes. Details from the background
pop out more a fishmonger's customer wag-
gling a fish at him, unacceptable because there's
a cat dangling from the tail.
And 3-D does give Gaston's riotous bar brawl
and other fights more of an in-your-face quality.
But at other times, the limitations of cell animation
are thrown into sharp relief, character movement
made jerkier by the conversion.
No matter. It's still glorious, from story to songs
to vocal performances to the message that this
non-princess Disney princess tale from 1991
passes on: Don't let custom and social restrictions
hold you back. Be yourself, girls, especially if you
"want much more than this provincial life."


If only Lady Gaga was this eloquent. Twenty years
and the rise of Pixar, DreamWorks Animation, Sony
Animation and Blue Sky Studios later, and no child's
cartoon has topped that for message.
This was the high-water mark of the great
music and lyrics team of Alan Menken and How-
ard Ashman. Ashman was dying of AIDS as this
film was made, and it's always seemed as if the
glorious and poignant title song was his farewell to
love and life and imagination. Thanks to these two,
"Beauty and the Beast" still can move you to tears.
The late, great Jerry Orbach had decades of
Broadway, film and TV work in front of him, and his
"Law & Order" fame followed "Beauty and the Beast"'
But his vocal turn as the sassy oversexed French
candelabra Lumiere, delivering the show stopper "Be
Our Guest,' is what made him immortal.
And there's Richard White, the quintessential
Broadway baritone, gloriously over the top, swag-
gering through the other show-stopper, the song
that bears his character's name "Gaston."
Even if you've had it on video for years, even if
your kids outgrew it in the last century, this jewel
in Disney Feature Animation's crown still works,
still grabs, tickles and moves you.
Disney has added an adorable new sight-gag
packed "Tangled" short cartoon to this re-release.
"Tangled Ever After" captures Rapunzel's mar-
riage to Flynn, with the huffy horse and dizzy
chameleon in charge of the wedding rings until
comic disaster strikes, a chain reaction ring-toss
that rollicks along for six silly minutes.

Beauty and the Beast
3D(G)
An arrogant young prince (Robby
Benson) and his castle's servants fall
under the spell of a wicked enchant-
ress, who turns him into the hideous
Beast until he learns to love and be
loved in return. The spirited, head-
strong village girl Belle (Paige O'Hara)
enters the Beast's castle after he
imprisons her father Maurice (Rex Ever-
hart). With the help of his enchanted
servants, including the matronly Mrs.
Potts (Angela Lansbury), Belle begins
to draw the cold-hearted Beast out of
his isolation.


Contraband (R)
Ex-smuggler Chris Farraday (Mark
Wahlberg) gave up his criminal ways
long ago. But, he's forced back into
the game after his brother-in-law,
Andy (Caleb Landry Jones), botches


stranded in Alaska and hunted by wolves. The
director is Joe Carnahan ("Smokin' Aces").
"One for the Money" (Jan. 27). Katherine Heigl
tends to waste her charm on crummy rom-coms,
but she looks rather appealing in this action-


HIS WEEK:
a drug deal for a crime lord (Giovanni
Ribisi), leaving Chris to settle the debt.
With the help of his best friend (Ben
Foster), Chris assembles a team to
run to Panama to retrieve a fortune
in counterfeit bills. When things go
awry, Chris must call on his rusty skills
to complete the task before his family
pays the price.


Joyful Noise (PG-13)
Hard times have fallen on Pacashau,
Ga., but the townspeople have faith
that the Divinity Church Choir will
lift their spirits by winning a national
competition. The choir has always
made beautiful music, but now, its two
leading ladies have hit a sour note. Vi
Rose (Queen Latifah) believes that a
traditional style is the key to victory,
but G.G. (Dolly Parton) thinks tried-
and-true means tired-and-old. The two
singers must find a harmonious chord
or risk losing everything.


comedy about an inexperienced bounty hunter.
It's based on the 1994 Janet Evanovich novel
that launched the Stephanie Plum series. (Did
someone say "franchise"?) With Jason O'Mara
(Fox's "Terra Nova") and John Leguizamo.
