Former cop to be next city manager


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Retired Newport, R.I., city
manager and former police
administrator Edward E
Lavallee has been selected
to be the next Venice city
manager.
City council voted unani-
mously at a special meeting
on Saturday to offer Lavallee a
contract.
Council members joked


about Lavallee's
no-nonsense and
firm demeanor,
at times call-
ing him "almost
too powerful" a
candidate.
Lavallee was
city manager in
Newport for the
past six years, and si
years with the Newp
Department.
"This guy is a pow


He's been here and done that,"
Bob Daniels said.
"A man like this ... all you
l"u have to do is put him in place
and throw the switch. He's
S awesome," said Jim Bennett.
"This is a guy I'd like to put in
the trenches."
LAVALLEE Lavallee, 64, scored in the
middle of the five finalists in
pent 30 terms of points scored on a
ort Police ranking form, but it was the
mayor's appointment to make;
erhouse. council's to confirm.


Prior to voting, a power bloc
of council members (Emilio
Carlesimo, Bob Daniels and
Jeanette Gates) stated it was
their intent to support whom-
ever the mayor chose out of
the top three candidates.
Mayor John Holic said he
hoped the vote would be
unanimous.
Holic made his selection
based not on rankings but on
council member comments.
He never saw how individual


Projects worry Oscar Scherer manager


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

The manager of Oscar
Scherer State Park in Osprey
is troubled by three pro-
posed projects: the Energy
Economic Zone near the
intersection of Interstate 75
and State Road 681; the Town
Center, also near I-75/S.R.
681; and the relocation of the
I-75/Central Sarasota Park-
way interchange.
"We are concerned about
the potential impacts to the
natural resources and the park
visitor experience," park man-
ager Tony Clements wrote in a
Jan. 9 letter to Sarasota County
Commission Chair Christine
Robinson. "Of most concern
are impacts from lights and
noise pollution, impacts to
water quality and quantity,
maintaining buffers between
the park and the development,
and the isolation of wildlife
species due to loss of wildlife
corridors."
The EEZ is a state-autho-
rized pilot incentive program
for cultivating green economic
development, encouraging
renewable electric energy
generation and manufactur-
ing products that contribute
to energy conservation and
green jobs. The property in
the EEZ near S.R. 681 is owned
by several developers, who
have been involved in a legal
dispute.
Clements asked that county
commissioners address his
concerns through the plan-
ning and development pro-
cess. At a meeting Wednesday,
Mark Loveridge, a county
planner, told commissioners
that staff has met with park
officials and volunteers to
recognize their concerns.

possible impact three local projects might have on wildlife.


"At this point, because we
don't have the (exact EEZ)
location determined, that's
as far as we've gotten with
Oscar Scherer," Loveridge
said.
Meanwhile, companies
throughout the county with
an interest in green economic
development received a boost
Wednesday when commis-
sioners approved advertise-
ment of a Feb. 11 public hear-
ing to consider establishing
locations, boundaries, energy
standards and eligibility crite-
ria for the EEZ program.
Through the EEZ, par-
ticipating businesses will


split state tax credits of up to
$300,000 per year. Sarasota
County and the city of Miami
Beach were selected in 2009
as communities to test the
pilot program. Staff has held a
number of public workshops
to receive community input
on the project.
"When we asked folks what
do you think businesses want,
(they said) lower taxes and
lower regulations," county
Environmental Utilities Direc-
tor Theresa Connor said.
"That's what this actually
attempts to do."
In October, commission-
ers decided to expand the


EEZ beyond two previously
approved areas S.R. 681
and the central county landfill
near Laurel Road to now
include major employment
centers and municipalities.
Stipulations commissioners
set Wednesday in approving
the ad for the public hearing
included broad energy-effi-
ciency standards (an Energy
Star rating of 50 for existing
buildings or 5 percent more
than the state building code
requirement for new build-
ings), eligibility only of com-
panies proposing to create

Opinions vary on Ripken Baseball's allegiance to county


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

One reason for the euphoria
county officials and baseball
fans felt in July 2009, when
commissioners and the
Baltimore Orioles agreed to a
$31.2 million deal to bring the
Orioles to Ed Smith Stadium,
was the notion that Ripken
Baseball would establish a
youth baseball academy in
Sarasota.


The memorandum of
understanding between the
county and the Orioles states
that the Orioles and Ripken
Baseball a sales and mar-
keting company that repre-
sents all of Cal Ripken Jr.'s
business and philanthropic
efforts "have expressed
a desire and are willing to
locate a Cal Ripken Youth
Baseball Academy and youth
tournaments at the Orioles'
minor league site" in Sarasota


County, and that the two
independent organizations
will commit to provide a com-
mercially reasonable level of
youth baseball activities in the
county.
"I am thrilled that the
Orioles have found a new
comprehensive spring train-
ing home and that Ripken
Baseball will be a part of the
facility in Sarasota," a state-
ment from Ripken said at
the time. "I have always liked


the idea of the kids playing
side by side with the profes-
sional ballplayers as it really
enhances their experience. We
are excited to partner with the
Orioles and bring our youth
academy model to the Sara-
sota community."
More than 30 months later,
however, no plans to build
such an academy in Sara-
sota have been presented

council members ranked the
candidates just the names
of the top three.
Lavallee was not the first
choice of any council mem-
ber, yet in the end he was the
mayor's top choice.
"The candidates far
exceeded any expectations
I had," Holic said upon
announcing his decision. "This
is a top notch council and I'm

P-cards get


second look

By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

The city of Venice is revving
up to take a second look at its
purchasing card program.
An audit of the "P-card"
will likely be on city council's
agenda at its next meeting.
Former Mayor Isaac Turner
resigned in 2010 partly in
response to alleged abuse
of his "P-card," when it was
learned the city manager
regularly used the card to pay
for business meals, which is
allowed under state rules, but
superseded by written city
policy which doesn't allow it.
A former mayor signed off
on the expenses at the time,
after city Finance Director Jeff
Snyder refused to do so.
Snyder noted "lots of
people" were using the P-card
for meals.
City Attorney Bob Ander-
son said this week the city's
program didn't have adequate
guidance and procedures in
place to ensure the mayor fully
understood his responsibility
in the matter.
Council put an audit of the
program on the back burner
while it went through the bud-
get process. Now it's ready to
address the issue again.
In the meantime, the city
curbed use of P-cards -
essentially a credit card for
minor authorized purchases -
so they could not be used for
meals or entertainment.
Council on Tuesday directed
Anderson to further analyze
the program and come up with
a revised ordinance.
The board also approved
related changes to the city's
travel and reimbursement
policies.
In 2010, after some dig-
ging by Council Member
Bob Daniels, the city found
staff with take home vehicles
weren't insuring them properly
and making the city a second-
ary insurer. Nor was the city
manager reporting the $600
monthly automobile allowance
on required city forms that are
sent to the Internal Revenue
Service.
That and more was cor-
rected in the revised travel and
reimbursement policy adopted
this week.

Bald eagle
found dead
An American bald eagle
was found dead Tuesday
morning at the Venice
Municipal Airport.
According to Airport
Administrator Chris
Rozansky, the bird was
found by Maintenance
Supervisor Harry Holder
while on his morning
inspection route.
Holder noticed it on
the side of the road in
the grass between Agape
Flights and Sarasota Avi-
onics on Airport Avenue,
below a nest created
by a pair of eagles that
relocated from an airport
radio tower about a half-
year ago.
Airport officials called
the Florida Fish andWild-
life Conservation Commis-
sion, which sent someone
to retrieve the eagle.
A wildlife official specu-
lated the eagle may have
been electrocuted by
overhead power lines.

Lee Foundation fights


By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER

At the four-year anni-
versary of Denise Amber
Lee's death, a foundation
is making strides in raising
funds, creating national
awareness of a broken 911
system and protecting a
legislative bill in her name.
Lee, a 21-year-old
mother of two young
boys, was abducted from
her North Port home
Jan. 17, 2008. Despite a
call from her on her cap-
tor Michael King's cell-
phone and at least four
other 911 calls includ-
ing one from a witness
who saw the kidnapper's
car and stayed on the


phone for nine minutes
with the 911 call center in
Charlotte County no
one ever was dispatched.
Lee's body was found
two days later off Toledo
Blade Boulevard.
The foundation was
created that same year
to promote and support
public safety through uni-
form training, standard-
ized protocols for 911 call
takers, and technologi-
cal advances to the 911
system.
In 2008, the Denise
Amber Lee Law was
proposed to set voluntary
standards for 911 opera-
tors and emergency call
centers. By its passage in
2010, the bill required 911


call takers
and dis-
patchers to
take manda-
tory public
safety tele-
communica-
tions training
and pass an LEE
examination
administered by the state
Department of Health with
competency and profi-
ciency testing.
This year, changes have
been proposed in a House
bill, causing the Denise
Amber Lee Foundation
concern.
One amendment would
allow a sheriff or other
sworn officer to sit in place
of a 911 call taker on a


to keep

temporary basis (while the
individual is on vacation,
out sick or in training).
"We understand that
small police departments
might only have one full-
time and one part-time
dispatcher and might need
someone with less training
to sit in from time to time,"
said North Port City Com-
missioner David Garofalo,
a DAL Foundation board
member. "But we are con-
cerned that much larger
cities also might want to be
exempt from the provision
in the bill."
Foundation president
Mark Lee, whose son
Nathan was married to
Denise, said board mem-
bers met with the Florida


911 bill strong


Police Chiefs Associa-
tion in Englewood before
the bill was changed. He
said the foundation was
surprised to see wording
weakening the bill was not
removed after discussions
with the association.
"They (police chiefs)
came to meet with us for
our input," he said. "We
thought they agreed (dis-
patchers and call takers)
should take the 232-hour
course designed by the
DOH and (sworn officers
take) the 40-hour bridge
course designed by the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement. We are see-
ing it differently in the bill.
"We also believe the
DOH should be allowed


to review the 40-hour
bridge course ... since it's
the agency that designed
and regulates the 232-
hour course."
The DAL Founda-
tion recently received a
$25,000 grant from Gulf
Coast Community Foun-
dation to build infrastruc-
ture to continue its goal
of strengthening the com-
munity and the nation's
911 emergency response
system. The grant will
help build a systematic
database that documents
weaknesses in 911 emer-
gency response systems
nationwide, according to
Mark Lee.

Medicare fraud leads to jail term, $723,000 fine for area resident


By ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER

An area woman found
guilty of committing
health-care fraud recently
was sentenced to 18
months in federal prison.
According to informa-
tion provided by the U.S.
Attorney's Office, Senior
U.S. District Judge Susan
C. Bucklew sentenced Mira
Matchin, 58, of Sarasota, to
18 months in federal prison
for health-care fraud on
Jan. 5 in Tampa. The court
also entered a monetary
judgment of $723,000, the
proceeds of the scheme
she orchestrated.
Investigators said


Matchin, who operated
several establishments in
the Warm Mineral Springs
and North Port area, stole
a New Jersey medical
doctor's identity in 2004.
From April 2004 through
March 2007, court records
state, Matchin, who was
not licensed to practice
medicine in Florida, New
Jersey or New York, billed
Medicare for services
purportedly rendered to
program beneficiaries -
many were 65 and older,
spoke Russian and were
eligible for Medicare
benefits at Panseonat
Miracle LLC, a medical
services business near
Warm Mineral Springs.


Matchin
used the
Medicare
Provider Bill-
ing Number
of a doctor
who never
treated the
patients,
didn't give


MATCHING


her permission to use his
name and number for
billing purposes and was
licensed to practice medi-
cine only in New York.
Matchin started Pan-
seonat Miracle in 2004,
advertising the business
as a wellness center, offer-
ing professional medical
consultations on a website
and in Russian-language


newspapers and TV.
Sarasota County received
complaints and launched
six code-enforcement
violations against Matchin
and Panseonat Miracle for
practicing medicine in a
residential neighborhood.
Matchin told a Sarasota
County judge in 2005 she
was a licensed neurologist
in New Jersey. However,
there was no proof she
held a license in that state.
In January 2006, a special
magistrate in Sarasota
County ruled that Matchin
must cease operations,
but she leased two more
houses in the Springs and
continued her business,
also opening an office in


North Port along Biscayne
Drive called Panseonat
Miracle and Northern
Medical Center.
Court documents
further state the claims
generated at Panseonat in
Florida were submitted to
a Medicare Part B car-
rier for Northern Medical
Center, PC., a New Jersey
corporation located in
East Brunswick, N.J., that
Matchin also controlled.
The total loss amount was
approximately $723,000,
the amount Matchin
must repay.
Matchin pleaded guilty
to scheming to defraud
Medicare Part B on Oct. 28,
2011. In the plea deal, nine


of the 10 charges against
her were dropped. The
penalty for Medicare fraud
carried a maximum prison
sentence of 10 years, three
years of supervised release
and a fine of $250,000,
court documents show.
The case was brought
as part of Tampa's Medi-
care Fraud Strike Force, a
joint effort of the Depart-
ment of Justice and the
Department of Health
and Human Services,
formed to address fraud-
ulent billing and other
crimes that adversely
affect the delivery of
health care through the
Medicare system.

PUBLIC NOTICE OF A SECOND
NEIGHBORHOOD WORKSHOP
A Second Neighborhood Workshop will be
held to discuss proposed Rezone Petition
No. 11-12 on an 8.66 acre + parcel locat-
ed on the west side of Jacaranda Boule-
vard and east of S.R. 776. The proposed
Rezoning Petition is a request by Mr. Zia
Butt, CEO, and President of North Port
Retirement Centers, who is the owner of
the subject parcel. North Port Retirement
Centers Inc. is seeking a rezoning to be
able to construct a 139 bed Assisted Liv-
ing Facility (ALF) in a modern facility,
known as the Gardens of Venice. This pro-
ject will be similar in style and quality as
the existing North Port Retirement Center
facilities in North Port and Port Charlotte.
The request proposes to change the cur-
rent zoning on the 8.66 acre + parcel
from OUE-1 (Open Use Estate, 1 dwelling
unit per 5 acres) to RMF-2 (Residential,
Multi-Family, 9 dwelling units per acre).
The Rezone Petition proposes to con-
struct three separate buildings which will
contain a total of 139 beds. The project
contains only one access point along
Jacaranda Boulevard that aligns with the
existing median access serving the Vene-
tia Subdivision to the east. The site will
contain on-site stormwater retention
ponds and be served by central sewer
and water facilities that already exist in
the area. This is not a public hearing. The
purpose of the neighborhood workshop is
to inform neighboring residents of the
nature of the project and view the pro-
posed Non Binding Development Concept
Plan, and to seek their comments. The
workshop will be held on Tuesday, Janu-
ary 24, 2012, in the Youth Activity Room
at 6:00 pm at the Frances T. Bourne
Library located at 4143 Woodmere Park
Boulevard, Venice, Florida. For more
information, call Brian Lichterman, AICP,
Vision Planning & Design at 941-780-
4166, who will be conducting the meet-
ing. Staff of the Sarasota County Planning
Services Department will also be in atten-
dance at the meeting. More information
on the proposal can also be found at
www.scgov.net.

Pick the meal your chef will cook


Hibachi Grill Buf-
fet, 549 North U.S. 41
Bypass, is replacing the
former Marco Polo in
Bird Bay Plaza Shopping
Center. New owner Andy
Liu is hoping to open
the remodeled buffet
restaurant with elegant
surroundings later this
month.
Serving lunch at
10:30 a.m. and dinner
from 4:30 to 9 p.m.
seven days a week, it will
seat 200 diners. Diners
entering the restaurant
will see a waterfall, then
a Japanese-style house
leading to a redesigned
layout with five dining
rooms and a party room
for 80 people. Gone is the
former cafeteria, replaced
with d6cor featuring lob-
ster and fish designs.


Diners selecting hiba-
chi meals choose meats
and vegetables from the
hibachi buffet table and
take them to hibachi
chefs who prepare and
cook their meal. Menu
options include Ameri-
can, Japanese and Chi-
nese food with specials
for dinner, including crab
legs, oysters, barbecued
ribs, sushi and chicken.
Salads, desserts, fruit and
a vegetarian selection are
available from five buffet
bars.
"Later we will have
beer and wine," Liu said.
Originally from South
China, he has been in
this country for 12 years
opening and operating
restaurants for family
and friends. This res-
taurant is operated by
the Fang Tang Group
of Cape Coral, owners
of the China Buffet in
Fort Myers, China Tokyo
Takeout in Cape Coral,
Chow Time in Panama
City and takeouts in
Minnesota.
Clayton Watson of
Commodore Realty, own-
ers of the plaza, handled


the transaction.

Expanding
"This time is a 'perfect
storm,' with property
values nearly half 2006
prices, to expand our
Venice-based business,"
said Vern Montgomery,
president of Montgom-
ery's CarpetsPlus Color
Tile, 825 E. Venice Ave.
He has purchased
a new retail store in
Lakewood Ranch at 8209
Nature's Way in the San
Marco Plaza, planned to
open later this month.
George Garmon will
manage the store and
Lynn Johnson is cus-
tomer representative.
Montgomery strongly
believes the local econ-
omy is well on the road
to recovery, with inter-
est rates on commercial
property at a historic low
as the area undergoes
tremendous growth. Call
941-488-1810.

Setting up sports
Securing and setting
up facilities, vendors
and providing venues
and officials for sporting
events are services pro-
vided by OnTurfSports,
based at Chuck Reiter
Park. Co-owners Joel
Holloway and Mark


Green have provided
the services for 10 years
and decided to make it a
business five years ago in
FortWayne, Ind.
Holloway said they
assist organizations in
professionally organiz-
ing community sport-
ing events for youths
between ages 9 and 16 to
promote sports tourism,
enabling teams and fam-
ilies to continue activi-
ties on vacation or while
traveling. Currently, they
are arranging baseball
events from February to
April, teaming up with
local organizations like
Venice Little League to
bring in challenging
teams from northern
states.
From Roanoke, Ind.,
Holloway attended
Purdue University, then
became a professional
engineering consultant
for 15 years. During his
career while coaching
baseball and basketball
for school and travel
teams he met Green.
Setting up a 50-team
league and tournaments
voluntarily for 10 years,


they decided to make it a
business in Fort Wayne.
Holloway's wife
accepted a teaching
position at Sky Academy
recently, so the family
moved to Venice and he
decided to open OnTurf-
Sports here. For details,

The new island Walgreens is scheduled to open next month.


Two more pharmacies


coming to island


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Pharmacy services are
exploding on the island of
Venice, with two new stores
to open within three months.
Opening next month,
according to a notice on the
store window, is the new
15,000-square-footWal-
greens Pharmacy, 391 South
Tamiami Trail South at Indian
Avenue. On schedule to open
in March is Venice Pharmacy,
652 South Tamiami Trail, next
to Dollar General in the Rialto
Shopping Plaza.
"We will bring a totally
new experience to Venice
as a full-service, indepen-
dent pharmacy with special
emphasis on meeting the
needs of all people in our
new community," said Jen-
nifer Singh, store manager.
An independently owned
business, it is part of a group
of businesses, including res-
taurants, based in Florida.
Plans are to provide a sec-
tion of high-quality, over-the-
counter holistic substances,
she said, together with educa-
tional materials and informa-
tion regarding proper usage
of the herbals for people
wishing to use alternative
methods to treat medical
conditions. In-store services
will be similar to competitors'


including durable medical
equipment, diabetes supplies
and compounding. Venice
Pharmacy will be open from
9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday
through Saturday.
Leasing of the property
for Venice Pharmacy was
handled by Terry Purdy,
broker and owner of Merritt
Realty Corporation, acting
for Lindsay Rialto LLC.
On the island, pharmacies
have enjoyed steady growth
since the original Dick &
Meadows opened on West
Venice Avenue, eventually
closing in the late 1990s.
Venice Apothecary, 560
The Rialto at the entrance
to Venice Regional Medical
Center, opened in 1976. Now
owned by Jeff Young, it is
part of Young's Pharmacies,
including Village Pharmacy
in Nokomis Village Shoppes
and Englewood Pharmacy.
Barclay Pharmacy of Ven-
ice, 200 North Tamiami Trail
North, Suite A, in Hamilton
Square, opened in 1979.
It provides full pharmacy
services from compound-
ing, unit dosing, vitamins,
durable medical equipment
to office services.
"We have been here a long
time," said 36 year pharma-
cist and owner Mark Barclay.

Companies staying cautious in 2012


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Four major local companies
report on their outlook for 2012.

Consumer
confidence lacking
"Insecurity and uncertainty
make consumers jittery and
unwilling to spend," said Rod
Hershberger, president and CEO
of PGT Industries in NorthVen-
ice. "Growing consumer confi-
dence would make a significant
difference. Knowing that 2012 is
an election year and the housing
market is still trying to gain trac-
tion, we anticipate the economy,
as it relates to the building
industry, to be static."
PGT was incorporated in
1980 with three employees; in
2003 it acquired a North Caro-
lina manufacturing facility. At
that time there were 1,583
employees in Venice and 232
employees in North Carolina.
By 2008 the company employed
1,900; currently there are 1,055
employees.
Due to consolidation and
pulling out of selected geo-
graphic areas, revenue has
declined slightly. However, PGT
has every intention of continu-
ing to manufacture products
here for the foreseeable future.
Hershberger said he is satisfied
with the support the company
has received from local govern-
ments, with incentives certainly
influencing decisions to con-
solidate manufacturing facilities
locally.

Steady growth
"I don't foresee adding addi-
tional employees other than one
to three skilled production or
assembly workers," said Janis
Coquillard, president and CEO
ofWesco Fountain Inc. of North
Venice.
Currently, there are 27
employees. Wesco peaked in
2007 with 55 and more than
double current revenues.
Moving to its present loca-
tion in 2001, the company built
Phase II immediately with room


for Phase III future expansion.
Growth in volume in 2011 was
about 20 percent and anticipa-
tion is for up to 25 percent this
year.
"We are beginning to see a
small trend develop for the
request of American-made
products," said Coquillard.
Foreign manufacturing cre-
ated havoc in an already weak-
ened U.S. economy.
She thinks Florida will recover
faster than some of the other
states that are still feeling the
recession.
"Everyone is affected by the
global economy, feeling the impli-
cations of the debt crisis from the
United States and Europe along
with concerns about China's
future," she said. "I anticipate
slow and steady growth for Wesco,
but cautiously because of the
global implications to the U.S.
economy."
Wesco has always received
outstanding support locally
from the county, city, chamber
of commerce and the Economic
Development Corporation.

Hiring unlikely
"We are expecting a repeat of
2011 from the economy and do
not expect to hire, but antici-
pate growth from new product
introductions," said Tim How-
ard, owner of CounterBalance
Corporation of North Venice.
Started in Philadelphia in
1991, it has 28 employees there.
It built a plant in Venice three
years ago with eight employees.
Core business sales were up
approximately 10 percent last
year, and the company hired
one person in Pennsylvania.
A direct result of the economy
since 2009 was the need to fast-
track changes to the company's
direction in order to grow, from
a manufacturer of devices sold
to other companies to direct
sales.
Taking a risk and mak-
ing a substantial investment,
it developed the Lift-A-Syst
bartender access door opener
for direct sale to end users and
is currently designing a similar
product.


Howard feels strongly
about using American-made
products.
"It is great that we can manu-
facture and assemble here in
the United States, not needing
to outsource to other countries
because of lower costs," he said.
"Providing jobs to the American
people needs to be the No. 1
priority."

Continued growth
Even before the economic
downturn, Publix was a lean
company, closely monitor-
ing expenses and operating
debt-free.
"We will continue to open
dozens of stores each year," said
Shannon Patten, media and
community relations manager.
"A successful grocery chain for
more than 80 years, our leaders
and all our associates are com-
mitted to keeping Publix just as
stable for the future."
The first store opened in
Winter Haven in 1930 with six
associates. Today, the largest
employee-owned supermarket
chain in the United States has
more than 1,000 stores and
more than 150,000 associates
operating in five states: Florida,
Georgia, Alabama, South Caro-
lina and Tennessee.
"Continuing growth means
looking at future store locations,
which will provide job oppor-
tunities in local communities
and provide growing opportuni-
ties for our current associates,"
Patten said.
Publix's sales for the first nine
months of 2011 were $19.7 bil-
lion, a 5.2 percent increase
from last year, and net earnings
were $1.1 billion, an increase
of 9.7 percent, with shares
increasing in value from $1.27
to $1.39.
Having a strong partner-
ship with all its communities is
important. Publix Super Markets
Charities contributes financially
to a broad group of organiza-
tions in Venice, with personal
involvement by enthusiastic
associates.

In a final report on its

SUN NEWSPAPERS


OUR VIEW



Mr. Interim heads to retirement .. until?


H ere we go again.
Not yet a year since he was
lauded for leaving North Port
city government a more stable, more
positive and generally better-run
organization, Terry Lewis was feted
last week for doing basically the same
thing for Sarasota County.
It seemed like the same Old West
scenario: The sheriff rides into town
when things look bleak, organizes the
posse, restores order and then heads
west into the sunset with a nod to
the admiring townfolk. Who was that
masked man?
Yep, a tip of the Stetson to Mr.
Interim. Steady Terry. There he goes
again.
To rewind: Lewis came to public
prominence as a Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office colonel leading
the investigation into the abduc-
tion and murder of Carlie Brucia in
2004. Months after he was hired as


North Port's police chief in 2006,
he was faced with another hor-
rific, high-profile case: the abduc-
tion and murder of Denise Amber
Lee. Throughout both cases, Lewis
impressed with his open, calm,
professional, assured and reassur-
ing handling of the investigations,
which were ultimately successful. He
also elevated the North Port Police
Department and erased its image as
a ticket-happy, speed-trap-hungry
agency. Locals quickly grew to like
and respect their chief.
In late 2010, when North Port city
commissioners cut loose City Man-
ager Steve Crowell, they found them-
selves in a fix trying to fill the position.
Almost on a whim, they turned to
Lewis, who was due to retire soon. He
wasn't their first choice, but he agreed
to take on the interim job. Six months
later, when a permanent replacement
was aboard and Lewis was ready to


re-retire, the accolades came pouring
in: Lewis, they said, had unique "lead-
ership" abilities and "integrity"; he got
things done and wiped away morale
problems.
The short-lived retirement ended
two months later when longtime
Sarasota County Administrator Jim
Ley left during a growing procure-
ment scandal. Again, Lewis wasn't the
first choice. Again, he accepted when
asked, noting he was a cop first, an
administrator second.
But Lewis wasn't simply keeping
the seat warm. He shepherded a new
procurement process through the
system, created a new position to
oversee purchasing and hired an eth-
ics coordinator. He gracefully showed
high-ranking county managers
the exit and elevated others. In the
interim, county commissioners had
time to search for and find a perma-
nent replacement, Randall Reid, who


begins Monday.
All in all, Lewis once again used his
even-handed approach to bring sta-
bility to a shaky government organiza-
tion. And again last week came the
accolades as he saddled up.
Commissioner Jon Thaxton: "You
were truly the most perfect person for
the job."
Commissioner Nora Patterson: "All
the 'i-dotting' skills a county admin-
istrator would normally have were
surpassed by your just-plain people
skills, intelligence and common
sense."
Commissioner Christine Robinson:
"You brought trust back, brought
the community into government
and brought government out to the
community."
Yep. Just another day's work for Mr.
Interim. You'd expect someone would
think to offer him a permanent job
again.


Unsung heroes


Tim
Smolarick


Kirstin Fulkerson from Gulf
Coast Community Founda-
tion and I went on adventure
No. 2 a couple of weeks ago.
Our goal continues to be to
visit every organization in the
community that selflessly gives
time, effort and assistance to
those in need.
Kirstin is due anytime now,
and I tease her that I am fully
prepared to deliver her baby
if necessary, as I have studied
child-birthing on the Internet.
Frankly, she does not seem as
confident in my abilities as I.
Our three stops for this trip
were Habitat for Humanity
South Sarasota County, All
Faiths Food Bank and Senior
Friendship Centers. All three of
these organizations serve the
community in ways that one
can never fully describe and
give justice; however, I will try.
Habitat for Humanity South
Sarasota County continues to
be a leader in the business of
getting hard-working people
who otherwise can't qualify
for a home into homes of their
own.
This group has a manage-
ment team consisting of Judy
Wilcox, executive director;
Golda Radefeld, president of
the board; Maryann Terry,
development director; and
my friend Ronnie Meurs, the
office coordinator. We had a
very enlightening conversation
and, as it goes with nonprofit
organizations, discovered that
ingenuity is alive and well as
they have started a rebuild
program to go along with new
construction that is resulting
in about 20 families getting a
home.
The tour of the building was
fantastic, the people we met
sincere, and believe me when I
tell you there is no such thing
as waste with this group. Along
with support from GCCF, there
are countless volunteer hours,
donations and clear guidance
from the folks who operate this
organization. I am happy to
have met all of these people,
and more important, I am
pleased to say that the partner-
ship between the Gondolier
and Habitat for Humanity
South Sarasota County will
continue to flourish.
The next stop was All Faiths
Food Bank and Aundria Castle-
berry, director of development,
is beyond a special person -
she is an angel. The folks they
serve day in and day out are
hungry.
Think about this as we go
on with our lives there are
kids who often will go without


food if this group did not exist.
My hope continues to be that
we can solve that issue in the
world, but it starts right here
in this region, and the folks on
the frontline of the solution are
the staff and volunteers at All
Faiths Food Bank.
The conversations we had
there were unique, and as each
program was described, my
heart hurt for those without.
Call over there and ask Aun-
dria about the backpack/book
bag program and how you can
help; I promise it will be worth
your time.
Aundria is an expert on
everything to do with those
in need and her facility. You
will not find a cleaner, more
effective distribution center
of this kind anywhere, and
she quickly thanked various
organizations, GCCF, indepen-
dent donors and all those who
volunteer to make this one of
the most helpful organizations
I have seen.
Our last stop of the day was
the Senior Friendship Centers
Venice Campus. My friend
Harrison Williams took me to
a celebration a few months
back and challenged me to
get out to this campus. Kirstin
and I say, Harrison, you were
correct, it is an amazing
facility.
Erin McLeod is the chief
operations officer, and with an
incredible staff runs a facil-
ity that caters to the needs of
active seniors. I saw dancing,
card games, dining, a library
and people just having a good
time.
Equally impressive is the
medical facility and those
doctors, nurses and other
volunteers who take up to 40
appointments per day four
days per week. This does
include dental, and the work
done in this field is incredible.
Besides the work done there,
the staff was incredibly fun
and attentive and was the nic-
est bunch of people you can
imagine.
As it goes with these types of
facilities the needs are never
filled. Along with GCCF, donor
and volunteer support, there
are many ways you can help
this organization. Take a ride
out there and find out how.
So, Kirstin and I completed
our second trip to those who
serve without hesitation, and
my admiration grows with
each visit. I must thank Kirstin
for being such a great tour
guide, Gulf Coast Community
Foundation for allowing Kirstin
to help me and, finally, the
folks who just give. No matter
what is said, no matter what
happens, no matter how they
feel, they just show up and
perform.
Life is full of unsung heroes.
I have been privileged to meet
so many.
I still need eight more boats
for the Christmas Parade!

Oops. When Rick Scott ran
for governor, most people
voted for him because they
wanted to vote Republican. We
passed up a great Democrat.
What fools we mortals be.
Boo, grouches. I'm almost
80 and I read the article about
the high school cafeteria. I have
grandchildren enjoying it. I live
in paradise, and I am upset
that we have so many grouches
here. I love to read the stories
about the Fish Camp. I wish I
could have been part of them.
Enjoy your life instead of com-
plaining. Yay, Tebow!
Oh, rats. I'm calling in refer-
ence to the South Jetty. The
rats down there are just unreal.
In broad daylight and the sun
shining, those little critters are
out there crossing over in front
of people, especially near the
food facility, but they extend
all the way almost down to the
end of the jetty. There's got to
be a way these can be con-
trolled. I'd really appreciate it if
somebody would check into it.
Sold. Mr. Neseman's cartoon
is humorous, but if Obama
wins the election that means
it's bought and paid for.
Wrong turn. I was with the
writer about the poor job the
U.N. does in some areas and
the cost to upgrade the U.S.
building until your last few
lines. Why did you have to
slam Obama for giving out
billions? Your prejudice was
exposed. You lost.
Give up. So many people
complain about the airport
or the foreign people who
have trained there, and none
of them are terrorists, espe-
cially Italians. Do these people
realize how much money
the airport and the training
center bring to this city? The
reason is it is one of the class
training centers in the United
States. That's why they come to
Florida, and they spend money
while they're here. They rent,
they go to restaurants, they
buy food. Maybe some day
these people will give up one
way or another.


Let 'em


Have It
Deprivation. We hear that
the Sarasota County commis-
sioners do not like yoga on Ven-
ice Beach. Can more than 100
people doing a healthy thing at
no charge be deprived of this
wonderful activity? It's over
at 9:30 and does not interfere
with beach traffic. We feel that
the Sarasota commissioners
have enough problems without
picking on an innocent group.
Maybe the Venice Gondolier
would like to check into this.
No wider. I'm against three
lanes each way on the bypass.
If Venice is to remain a charm-
ing city, a nine-lane highway
is not the answer. If you want
to go throughVenice fast, use
1-75, To retain the quality of
life in Venice, keep the present
bypass. Closing off some of the
turn-throughs might help.
Disgusted. I find it abso-
lutely disgusting that Sunrise
Sunset concessions at Snook
Haven has asked more time
to pay back rent due from
May 2011. This firm received
a tryout before bidding was
allowed way back before the
contract was signed, much to
the objection of many other
people who wanted to bid on
this particular contract. This
firm, after the extended tryout,


then took on the job. Suppose
every firm that wanted county
business would just put in a
low bid and then say, "Oh, our
bid was too low, please adjust
the terms." What would be
the point of having things put
up for bid? This company has
very successful contracts with
the county in other locations.
There is no guarantee when
they bid that every concession
that they win is going to be a
winner. This is what the Ameri-
can game is all about. You take
your chances if you want to
make outlandish profits.

Me too. I used to read Rup-

son who claims that when Clin-

Feed a child and change a life


JILL
COLLINS
GUEST COLUMNIST

How can a child focus
on solving a math prob-
lem or memorizing a new
word when she or he is
trying to ignore the per-
sistent pangs of hunger?
Across our community
teachers have found
that in some instances
Monday morning comes
and they are forced to
compete against hunger
for the attention of their
students.
Today, 1,801 children,
or nearly 48 percent of
school children in Venice,
qualify for free or reduced
price meals through the
National School Lunch
Program. This program
provides the nutrition
they need to get them
through the week. But
what happens to these
children when they go
home over the weekend?
Since 2008, All Faiths
Food Bank's BackPack
Kids Program has been
helping children get the
nutritious and easy-to-
prepare food they need
to feed them over the
course of the weekend.
Bags of food assembled
by five local groups are
distributed at the end of
the week to 325 children
in need at six schools
located in Venice and
Englewood. With your
help, we can provide
more.
As the following groups
know, $2.25 can change
a child's life and end
their hunger, something
no child should have to
experience. Venice United
Church of Christ and St.
Mark's Episcopal Church
of Venice provide back-
packs of food to students
at their adopted school,
Garden Elementary;
Knights of Columbus


provides food to students
at Taylor Ranch Elemen-
tary and Oak Park South
School; St. David's Epis-
copal Church provides
food to students at Engle-
wood Elementary; and
Venice-Nokomis United
Methodist Church pro-
vides food to students at
Laurel Nokomis School.
A donation of just $2.25
per week provides a child
a backpack of food each
week during the school
year, and also helps feed
him or her over school
holidays. That is a total of
just $86 to feed a child in
need for the entire school
year.
This donation made
a difference in these
families' lives, as told by
teacher, DebraVoege:
"The [BackPack Kids]
program runs soooo
smoothly and now I know
why. Having the food
arrive ready to go into
the special backpacks
helps our guidance staff
get it to the students in a
timely and confidential
fashion. Students look
forward to the pickups.
"I mentor a family of
seven boys, ages 10, 7,
5, 3, 1 and 1-month-old
twins. The oldest one
told me that he doesn't
mind carrying the extra
bags for his two younger
brothers at home because
it's his way of helping the
family 'make it.' They live
in a one-bedroom motel
room.
"Another one of my
students moved to Geor-
gia to live with relatives
because of financial
hardship. When I asked
him what he had liked
best about [our school], I
thought maybe he would
say the math classes I
taught. But instead, he
said, 'Fridays, 'cause my
sisters and I get those
backpacks and I know
we'll have something to
eat.'"


"[Our school] has a
very diverse population,
both in ethnicity and
income. Our range might
just be a little wider
than some of the other
schools.
"Our students work
hard on their academics
so they can be success-
ful in life. They shouldn't
have to worry about
whether or not they'll
have something to eat
when they get home.
Thanks to All Faiths Food
Bank and all of you, 50 of
our students can worry
a little less as they don
their special backpacks
each Friday."
Other notes from our
families about the BPK
Program:
"My children get more
fruit. Because of one
income and my disability,
I cannot afford it all the
time."
"It helps a lot with hav-
ing to feed four kids."
"What I like most about
the program is that the
kids love bringing home
healthy food and it's a
great opportunity to
experience seeing my
child bringing these items
from school."
"My son now has nutri-
tious snacks on the week-
ends, because I work."
"It helps with food
when food stamps run
out makes food stamps
go farther."

I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Enforce
sanctions on Iran
Editor:
Last month President
Obama signed legisla-
tion targeting the Central
Bank of Iran, which the
Iranians use to funnel
money to their weap-
ons program. Now the
administration must
implement those sanc-
tions and resist inter-
national pressure to
grant waivers that would
weaken or water them
down.
Individual states can
also take action by pass-
ing disinvestment legisla-
tion that targets compa-
nies doing business with
Iran. They should follow
the example of New York,
California, Florida and
other states.
Oil exports account
for nearly 80 percent
of Iran's exports and
half of its government's
revenues.
Iran has been working
toward building a nuclear
weapon since 2003,
according to a report
released by the Inter-
national Atomic Energy

VENICE PUMMELS MANATEE:
Venice used a big first half then
coasted to a 63-31 victory over
Manatee in a Class 7A-District 11
game at Manatee High.
The Indians scored 21 points in
the first quarter and added 23 in the
second quarter as they took a 44-14
lead into halftime.
"We played really clean and
hard,"said Venice coach James
Slaton."Played really good defense
and our rotations were good. We
blocked out really well."
The game was played with a
running clock from late in the third
quarter on as the Indians took at
least a 35-point cushion.
Senior Zach Flerlage led Venice
(8-9 overall, 4-3 district) with 20
points while junior Chris Hann
chipped in with 14 points.
Devin Cruz-Klein paced the
Indians with nine rebounds.
In the junior varsity, Venice edged
Manatee, 47-46, for its sixth straight

James Slaton said."We had a great
effort last night (a two-point loss
to Braden River) against one of the
top teams in the state and we might
have been a little tired because of
that."

After Tuesday night's game
against Manatee, Venice coach
John Flynn was pleased with his
defense.
With good reason as the Lady
Indians limited the Lady Hur-
ricanes to just 25 points while
forcing 26 turnovers in their
52-25 victory in a Class 7A-Dis-
trict 11 game at Venice High.
Venice raises its record to
10-12 overall and 6-3 in the
district while Manatee is 4-14
overall and 0-8 in the district.
"We are 6-3 in the district,"
said Flynn. "Nobody would have
said we would be there right
now. I think so far so good."
The Lady Indians limited
Manatee to single-digit scor-
ing in every quarter including
just four points in two of the
quarters.
"They just defended like
crazy," said Flynn. "They were
communicating with each other.
Lot of good help with rotation
tonight. Everyone was talking
and everyone was on the same
page."
Venice (10-12 overall, 6-3
district) only led 5-4 with three
minutes left in the first quarter
but then scored the final six
points to grab a 11-4 cushion.
The Lady Indians forced five
turnovers in the final three
minutes.
"When we won the game in
overtime against Braden River
(last week) I learned a lot from
them," said Flynn. "We were
really quick on double-teaming
and all over the floor. They did a
great job. I said let's try it again
tonight, so we did."
In the second quarter, Venice
scored the first seven points
including six by Hackett with a

After a year out of foot-
ball, Venice High gradu-
ate Kody Sallis is back.
Sallis, who attended
State College of Florida
one semester, signed
to play at NAIAWebber
International University
in Babson Park, Fla.
At 6-foot-2, 210 pound,
Sallis, who will receive
academic and athletic
scholarships, will play
tight end for the Warriors.
In 2010, Sallis led the
Indians in receiving with
25 catches for 328 yards
and two touchdowns. He
also rushed for 220 yards
on 60 carries with three


3-pointer and a three-point play.
Manatee couldn't get any
offense inside especially in the
first half with 6-foot-1 Hackett in
the middle.
Hackett scored 15 of her
game-high 23 points in the first
half. She also had five blocks
and seven rebounds in the half.
"Today we got better angles
for Laura to get the ball," said
Flynn. "They are starting to see a
little bit better."
In total, Hackett ended with 14
rebounds.
Venice took a 24-12 lead into
halftime.
In the third quarter, it took

touchdowns.
A chance to play col-
lege ball came out of
nowhere for Sallis.
"A month ago their
coach was down in Ven-
ice and talked to (Venice
High head coach John)
Peacock and he told him
I wanted to give it (foot-
ball) another shot," said
Sallis. "I just got done
lifting and saw I missed
a call (on my cell phone)
and thought, 'Who was
this?' I called him back
and he asked me if I
wanted to play football.
Right time, right place."
Sallis wasn't even going
to take any classes this
semester. He was just
going to wait until spring


nearly three minutes for any
points but over the final 2:41 of
the quarter, the Lady Indians
scored 10 points while holding
Manatee to two points. Venice
sophomore Maggie Flynn had
six of her nine points in the
scoring run.
Flynn emptied his bench in
the fourth quarter as Venice
outscored Manatee, 16-9.
Venice hosts Port Charlotte on
Friday in the final regular-sea-
son district game of the season.
"We had a goal this week,"
said Flynn. "Three-win goal.
Braden River was the first one.
We got two of the three we want.
We need Friday's game (against
Port Charlotte). We need to beat
a good team. They deserve to
beat a decent team."

and summer to find a
college to play football.
"It happened so fast,"
said Sallis.
This is not the first
time Sallis had talked
withWebber, as he was
recruited by the school
after high school.
"They recruited me last
year and at that point,
I was talking to other
schools," he said.
A big selling point this
time was it would be less
expensive for Sallis.
"I missed it and love it,"


said Sallis. "Going to high
school games makes you
want to play even more.
I might as well get out of
Venice and play football
while I am at out."
Sallis said practice
starts today.
"Hoping to bust my
butt and play good on
field and transfer to a big-
ger school," said Sallis.
Sallis kept himself in
shape by running at the
Wellfield Complex, play-
ing basketball and joining
a flag football team. He

Bird count taking flight


By CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER
Not many people can sit
on a lounge chair on their
lanai, put up their feet
and claim to be serious
scientists. Those claims
can be made, however,
by participants in Project
FeederWatch, a program
operated by the Cornell
Lab of Ornithology and
Bird Studies Canada that
now is in its 25th year.
Similar to the annual
four-day Great Backyard
Bird Count, which also has
Cornell Lab as a partner,
Project FeederWatch is a
bird-counting program
that is used to collect
data for scientific analy-
sis. While GBBC is held
midwinter, this year on
Feb. 17-20, Project Feeder-
Watch is an all-winter sur-
vey of birds that visit North
American sites, including
various community areas,
nature centers and, of
course, average home yard
bird feeders.
This year, the project
runs for 21 weeks from
the second Saturday of
November to the first Fri-
day in April. Participants
can sign on anytime until
Feb. 28-29.
David Bonter, the Cor-
nell project leader, called
the project "a wonderful
tradition in ornithology."
"Birds live over a vast
area," he said. "No single
team or person can do it
(count) all."
According to Comell's
Winter Bird Highlights,
last season's project had
15,843 total participants
with 115,313 checklists

submitted and 6,371,873
birds reported. A total
of 143 FeederWatchers
reported from Florida,
whose No. 1 bird sighted
was the northern cardinal,
with the mourning dove a
close second.
Bonter said the more
people watch, the better
the picture the Lab scien-
tists will have regarding
the birds. He said the pro-
gram "gets people engaged
and involved" as well as
helps those at the Cornell
Lab "better understand
the bird population."
After a decade, Phyl-
lis Serrian is a veteran of
Project FeederWatch.

"I've always been inter-
ested (in bird watching),"
she said.
When the program is
active, Serrian said, she
has a tendency to do her
feeder watching in the
morning when she has her
coffee and breakfast and
sits on the lanai. Mourning
doves and cardinals come
in early morning and late
evening, she said.
"We see a good many
cardinals and mourning
doves," Serrian said. "In
fall, we get a ton of grackle.
When the grackle come,
they eat (the birdseed) all
up.
Serrian, who does her
reporting on the website
www.birds.cornell.edu/
pfw, said the daily time
limits are easy. She said
she gets pleasure help-
ing with the scientific
research.
However, she cautions,
"(Project) FeederWatch
isn't for everybody. You
have to enjoy (birdwatch-
ing) as well."
Sandi Cook is participat-
ing in Project FeederWatch
for the first time this year.
She said she discovered
the program while going
to the Cornell Lab website
to find out about the Great
Backyard Bird Count.
Cook said she "is very
much an amateur" despite
birdwatching for many
years.
"We started over 15
years ago just as some-
thing we enjoyed" she said
of her husband, Tom, and


herself.
"We put feeders up
(usually three to four). We
just learned as we went
along. We're still adding
feeders as we go."
Cook said participating
in the project is fun.
"I sit on the lanai and
spend two to three hours
jotting down what shows
up," she said.
When the Cooks first
came to the area from St.
Louis, Ill., she said, they
were "kind of shocked"
that there were lots of
empty lots, but no birds.
After putting up the feed-
ers, "lo and behold, the
birds showed up."
The kinds of birds vary;
there have been red-bel-
lied woodpeckers, a covey
of bobwhite, mourning
doves and a rufous-sided
towhee, among others.
"We saw juncos (spar-
rows) the other day,"
Cook said of the No. 1
ranked bird in the Conti-
nental Top 10 as reported
the last 25 years.

FLORIDA'S CONTRIBUTION
Florida is "a very unique place" because of its subtropical environ-
ment, said David Bonter, the Cornell Lab Project FeederWatch leader.
"Many birds do winter in Florida" he said, adding it's the only place to
keep tabs on pine warblers or yellow-rumped warblers.
"A number of species that winter in Florida you don't find elsewhere,"
he said.
An important result of the project is the discovery of how much the
Eurasian collared-dove has overtaken North America. Florida is the
"epicenter"of the bird's invasion, Bonter said.
Originally from Southeast Asia, the dove was brought to the Bahamas
in the 1970s and released, whereupon "they bred like crazy."They've
conquered all of Florida, he said, and have migrated up to Alaska. Now,
scientists are taking a close look at how the invasion is affecting the
native species.
FeederWatchers periodically count the birds they see at their feeders
from November through early April and send their counts to Project
FeederWatch, according to www.birds.cornell.edu. Project data help
scientists track movements of winter bird populations and long-term
trends in bird distribution and abundance.
The cost is $15 to participate in the program. In return, Feeder-
Watchers receive a research kit, including ID poster, bird calendar and
instructions. Compiled by CarolSakowitz

County may try to recover Sanborn money


By JOHN McQUISTON
ABC 7

A one-time warehouse
in Lakewood Ranch
was going to help the
west coast of Florida
become the east coast of
Hollywood.
Sanborn Studios prom-
ised to create movies and
TV shows on the Suncoast
- and to create jobs here.


It has struggled to do
both, so far.
The thousands of square
feet in green-screen stage
space and the shelves full
of lighting and gaffing
equipment are all gone
now. Sanborn terminated
its lease late last year. The
building's owners say that
the building retrofitted
with an 80-ton air-condi-
tioner and a heavy-duty


electric system to accom-
modate the studio still
make it an excellent
soundstage and they plan
to rent it out to TV and
film producers.
The problem is that
when Sanborn took
$650,000 of Sarasota
County economic develop-
ment money, it promised
to operate out of the Lake-
wood Ranch building.


"What we want to find
out is what their plan
is going forward, and
whatever that might be,
is it in compliance with
the agreement they have
with the county," said Jeff
Maultsby, Business and
Economic Development
manager for the county.
The county attorney
is looking for answers
to those questions now,


he said. As for Sanborn
Studios, it has offices in
Manatee County near
the Sarasota-Bradenton
International Airport, but
no one answered the door
or the telephone Friday
and the parking lot was
almost empty.
Still, Sanborn's agree-
ment with the county
gave it three years to
produce 117 jobs.


"There is still time on
the job-creating period,
and depending on what
their plans are and what
the attorney's office finds
out, they very well could
meet the obligations of
the agreement," Maultsby
said.
Sanborn's marquee pro-
duction, a TV show called
"Miami 24/7," has never
gone into full production.


Company promises to stay, gets grant


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

A Sarasota business
that explored opportuni-
ties to move to Louisiana
or Hillsborough County,
but pledged to keep its
148 jobs here and create
217 more, has received a
$400,000 incentive grant
from the county.
The company, a medi-
cal billing firm known by
the code name "Project
Man" as it goes through
the granting process,
received the funds last
week from Sarasota
County commissioners.


The new jobs would be
created during the next two
years and have an average
salary of $38,000, for a cost
to the county of more than
$1,800 per job created.


The incentives will
be paid as the jobs are
created. The jobs must
remain in place for five
years in order for the com-
pany to avoid a financial


claw-back penalty.
Mark Huey, president
and CEO of the Economic
Development Corporation
of Sarasota County, said
his office heard about the


prospect of the company
leaving from someone in
a neighboring county. He
estimated the economic
impact of retaining the
company at $50 million


over two years.
Gulf Coast Community
Foundation contributed
$100,000 in training incen-
tives to help the company,
Huey said.

Pluck an artful duck this weekend


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

People and ducks will
take over the Venice
Municipal Airport Festival
Grounds this weekend.
The people will be
there for the 20th annual
Venice-Nokomis Rotary
Art Festival. The ducks
are the star attraction of
the club's eighth annual
Duck Pluck fundraiser.

Artists in
residence and more
For 20 years the art fes-
tival has been one of the
most fun events occur-
ring in Venice, which is
almost as well known for
its festivals and parades
as it is for its history and
its shark teeth.
Always located at the
airport, it moved to the
airport's festival grounds
in its fifth year because
it needed the additional
parking space as well
as additional exhibition
space for the visiting art-
ists who come from all
over the United States to
show and sell their wares
and talk to show attend-
ees. One of this festival's
keys to success is that the
artists showing at the fes-
tival must attend the festi-
val and be in their booths
to speak with visitors.
Rotarians set the stage,
literally. They prepare
the grounds from the
ground up, getting rid of
fire ants, installing fences
and laying out the area,
which becomes a sort of
tent city for the week-
end, and setting up the
performance area and
stage for the entertain-
ment that is continuous
both days.
Weather has threat-
ened to wreak havoc with
the event a few times,
but somehow the show
always manages to go on.
Offering something
for every age, the festival
has face painting plus
a children's craft tent
where youngsters can
create their own art. One
day, some of them might
return as professional art-
ists with their own booths
at the festival. There also
will be bounce houses at
the festival for children
with too much energy for
sit-down craft projects.
While the main draw
for most festival goers is
the art, cars, boats and
RVs are a powerful lure
for many who attend this
festival, which truly has
something for every age
and interest.
Car buffs can see
antique automobiles
from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Saturday when the

A classic car show is an integral part of the annual Rotary Art Festival, which will occur this
coming weekend at the Venice Municipal Airport Festival Grounds.


Ken McBride will perform Saturday and Sunday at the Rotary

will entertain from 1 to 1:45 p.m. Saturday and from 4 to 5 p.m.
Sunday, when he will be the closing act of the day.


display their cars at the
festival. Sunday, the Brit-
ish Car Club will display
the best of Britain's auto
makers over the years.
The car shows will be
at the far end of the
grounds beyond the art
and craft exhibits.
MarineMax will present
a boat show on site both
days. Find it directly oppo-
site the entry and just past
the bounce houses.
Entertainment will
range from the History-
Makerz, Cryin' Shames
and the Warehouse Band
on Saturday to the Curry
Creek Cloggers, Bridge
Church band, GSL Trio
and the Warehouse Band
on Sunday, plus Irish
singer Ken McBride both
days. There is plenty of
seating for the entertain-
ment area, which is mid-
way between the entrance
and the boat show area.
Rotarians staff the
beer and food booths,
which are always busy.
There is something about
a Rotary hamburger
served at a festival that
is especially appealing
to festival goers. There
also will be such festival
classics as funnel cakes
and kettle corn. Food will
be sold from 11 a.m. to
closing, and snack tents
are in a row to the left of
the entrance, ending at
the bounce houses.

Pluck a duck
The Duck Pluck is
one of the club's main
fundraising events for the
Rotary Futures program
at Venice High School.
The people who purchase
the right (i.e., winning)
ducks can go home with

Rotary Futures
College
Resource Center
The idea for the
program came from
former Venice Gondolier
publisher Bob Vedder,
who remains the chair
of the 23-member
board. He and a group
of concerned citizens
developed the program
to assist parents and
students in learning
about college and career
training options, from
how to pick a school to
how to apply for finan-
cial aid. They studied
programs in other areas
of the country, secured a
grant from the Kathleen
K. Catlin Fund of the
Community Foundation
of Sarasota County and
began operating the pro-
gram 10 years ago.
Vedder persuaded the
Venice-Nokomis Rotary
to become the sponsor-
ing organization. Its art
festival, Duck Pluck and
Toast to Venice (March 30
at Venice Train Depot)


are a major source of
funds for Rotary Futures
and its other charities.
Its present office is
in a portable building
at Venice High School,
although the program
is open to students and
parents throughout the
county. Upon completion
of the new high school
in Venice, Rotary Futures
will have a dedicated
space within the new
building, board member
Jan Lugar said.
According to a Futures
brochure, more than
22,000 students took
advantage of the pro-
gram in its first five years
and nearly $16 mil-
lion in financial aid
was awarded. In 2011,
scholarships valued at
$2,502,166 (not including
the state's Bright Futures
program) were awarded
to members of the senior
class of 459 students.
In addition to college
research and scholarship
assistance, the program
offers assistance in
resume writing, SAT and
ACT information and
registration, seminars
for parents and a college


night featuring represen-

'Once in a Lifetime' is joyous entertainment


PHOTO COURTESY OF DANIEL PERALES STUDIO
A scene from George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart's delightfully
funny"Once in a Lifetime" which runs through Feb. 29 at the
FSU Center for the Performing Arts in Sarasota.


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

What's old is new
on the Mertz stage at
the FSU Center for the
Performing Arts where
George S. Kaufman and
Moss Hart's "Once in
a Lifetime" is running
in rotating repertory
through Feb. 29.
The story is about
three vaudeville perform-
ers, George Lewis (Jason
Bradley), Susan Walker
(Ashley Scallon) and Jerry
Hyland (Andrew Carter),
who realize that film is


where it's at. One of them
goes so far as to sell their
vaudeville act to pay
their way to Hollywood,
where the one least
likely to succeed natu-
rally becomes the most
successful when studio
mogul Herman Glogauer
(David Breitbarth) takes
a shine to him.
An assortment
of antics continues
throughout this delight-
fully funny show, which
includes the entire
Asolo Repertory resident
company and the entire
third-year class of the


Asolo Conservatory of
Actor Training as well as
the aforementioned first-
year company members
and Breitbarth, who has
been entertaining area
audiences at the Asolo
Rep for 16 seasons.
Costumes by Alex
Jaeger and sets by Erik
Flatmo with direction by
Mark Rucker and move-
ment by Amy Corcoran
add zest to a show that
proves as ageless as it is
charming. With longtime
regulars such as Caro-
lyn Michel performing
small but dynamic and


funny parts, "Once in a
Lifetime" offers audience
members a pleasant eve-
ning of theater and many
laughs.
"Once in a Lifetime"
plays through Feb. 29 in
the Mertz at the Florida
State University Center
for the Performing Arts,
5555 North Tamiami
Trail, Sarasota. For tickets
and performance times
and dates, visit www.

Two couples become embattled when trying to resolve issues that arise after learning their
young boys fought with each other in the play"God of Carnage" running at Asolo Rep through
April 6.


Shades of dark and light in


Asolo's 'God of Carnage'


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR

It was all neat and
proper in the beginning.
A shade of light.
But before the 67
minutes of the play
were up, the characters
were disheveled and the
once neatly arranged
living room where the
action took place was in
disarray.
"God of Carnage," by
award-winning play-
wright Yasmina Reza,
explores the depth of
human emotion when
coming to grips with our
children's misbehavior.
The characters, two
sets of parents, go to
great lengths to under-
stand their child's actions
and motivation follow-
ing a fight they had with
each other. Unfortu-
nately, the parents try to
settle the fight for their
children and end up
fighting with each other.
Laughter erupts when
audience members
identify with some of
the actors' behavior and
attitudes, but silence fills


the place as they ques-
tion their own motiva-
tions and individuals
must decide which side


to take.

Pain Disrupts
DR. DAN BUSCH, DR. ERENE ROMANSKI
CHIROPRACTOR


If you suffer from chronic pain, it surely
comes as no news that you find it difficult
to concentrate. However, that is precisely
what a new study reveals. According to this
recent research, pain triggers a region of the
brain known as the lateral occipital complex
(LOC). As a result, a person's ability to
concentrate and accurately recognize


images is seriously compromised.
Researchers were able to uncover this link
by using functional magnetic resonance
imaging (fMVRI) to test brain function of
volunteers. These tests revealed that the
LOC is a region that participates in both
working memory activities and pain. It is
also known to be a center for processing
images. When pain occurs, concentration
suffers.

Shingles vaccine recommended


FROM SARASOTA
COUNTY COMMUNICATIONS

Health officials are
urging adults age 50 and
older to get vaccinated
against shingles. Caused
by the same virus associ-
ated with chicken pox,
shingles is more com-
mon and serious in older
adults.
It's estimated that one
out of three people in the
nation will develop shin-
gles during their lifetime.
About half of the nearly
1 million Americans who
experienced shingles in
the past year were 60 and
older.
For some, the blister-
ing skin rash can lead
to severe pain lasting
months or years. Other
complications include
eye problems and, less
often, pneumonia, hear-
ing problems, blindness
and brain inflammation
(encephalitis). In rare
instances, shingles also
can lead to death.

"After a person recov-

virus stays in the body
in a dormant state. For
reasons that are not fully
known, the virus can
reactivate many years
later, causing shingles,"
said Dr. William Hey-
mann, Sarasota County
Health Department med-
ical executive director.
"The likelihood of
getting shingles or
experiencing severe and
lasting complications is
greatly reduced in those
who get the singles vac-
cine," Heymann said.
"Shingles vaccine is only
needed once. You can
get shingles more than
once, so it is advisable
to get the vaccine even if
you have had the disease.
Those who have been
vaccinated and then
later get shingles usu-
ally have a much milder
experience."

School choice deadline is Feb. 24


FROM SARASOTA COUNTY
SCHOOL DISTRICT

Parents who would like
their children to attend a
Sarasota County public
school other than their
districted school in the
2012-13 academic year
are invited to submit a
school choice application
from Monday, Feb. 6,
through Friday, Feb. 24,
at 4:30 p.m..
Because space is
always limited and
demand may be high
at some schools, it is
typically not possible
to accommodate all
school choice requests.
As in previous years,
school choice approvals
will be determined by
a random lottery pro-
cess, rather than on a
first-come, first-served
basis. Students will be
assigned automatically
to their districted school
(based on the location of
their residence) or their
current school, unless a


school choice application
is received.
School choice applica-
tion forms will be avail-
able beginning Monday,
Feb. 6, at all public
schools, at selected day-
care facilities or by
calling 941-927-9000,
ext. 32255. Parents will
be notified of choice
assignments in early
April.
The ability for par-
ents to choose a school
outside of their district
began in the late 1990s
in the Sarasota County
School District and has
been well-received by
both parents and school
administrators. Options
for school choice are
limited at some schools
for the 2012-13 year if
those schools are near
their enrollment capac-
ity. The complete list of
schools open to choice
is available at www.
SarasotaCountySchools.
net/departments/
schoolchoice.


Other district options,
such as charter schools,
magnet schools or
magnet programs, do
not require the comple-
tion of a school choice
application. Students
interested in attending
these schools or pro-
grams (including Bay
Haven School of Basics
Plus, Suncoast Polytech-
nical High School, the
International Baccalaure-
ate program at Riverview
High School, Advanced
International Certificate
of Education program at
Sarasota High School and
the Visual & Performing
Arts programs at Booker
High School and Booker
Middle School) should
contact these schools
directly.
While school bus
transportation for regu-
lar school choice will not
be available this year,
an opportunity of Early
Notification for School
Choice with Transpor-
tation (also known as


Adequate Yearly Progress
Choice or AYP Choice)
is available at several
of the district's Title 1
schools this year. A Title
1 school is a school that
receives special funding
through the U.S. Depart-
ment of Education No
Child Left Behind Act
to assist students in
improving their aca-
demic performance.
If the school did not
meet the required bench-
marks for Adequate
Yearly Progress under
NCLB, parents of stu-
dents attending these
schools will receive
a letter and a special
Choice with Transporta-
tion application form
in the mail. Informa-
tion about a school's

Committee wants better


school health programs


FROM SARASOTA COUNTY
SCHOOL DISTRICT

A committee of rep-
resentatives from the
Sarasota County School
District and the Sarasota
County Health Depart-
ment have drafted a
platform statement on
school health issues. The
Sarasota School Health
Advisory Committee
intends to send the state-
ment to the individual
members representing
Sarasota County in the
state Legislature and to
present it in person when
Florida School Board
Association members
meet informally with
Legislators in Tallahassee
later this month.
Operating on the
premise that good health
is essential to student


well-being and academic
success, SHAC meets
regularly to discuss
health issues in schools
and to suggest programs
and activities to improve
student health. The
members have identi-
fied the following as
areas that should be
addressed:
Physical exams. The
committee proposes that
all students should have
a physical exam when
they enter middle school
and high school as well
as the single physical
now required to enter
elementary school.
Comprehensive
health education. The
committee proposes that
schools offer a compre-
hensive health educa-
tion program at all grade
levels to provide general

health information and
instruction in how to
reduce the impacts of
obesity, substance abuse,
violence, suicide, skin
cancer and other health
issues that affect young
people.
The group has identi-
fied several statewide
studies that underscore
the urgency of local
schools intervening in
health-related issues.
According to various
statewide surveys, Sara-
sota County high school
students rank in the least
favorable (highest inci-
dent) category compared
to other school districts
in Florida for insufficient
physical activity, smok-
ing, alcohol use, binge
drinking, marijuana use,
self-inflicted injuries and
suicides.


SHAC will request
state support for
increasing the number
of physical exams and
developing a compre-
hensive health educa-
tion program. Its plat-
form statement also
expresses support for
bills introduced in the
State House and Senate
to reduce the incidents
of concussions and head
injuries to youth athletes
and to improve monitor-
ing and care of students
who suffer head trauma.
It also supports bills
to include a health
education course in the
state's requirements for
high school graduation.
It opposes a bill that
would repeal the current
requirement for physical
education to be provided
in middle schools.

I GOREN BRIDGE
WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

4A95 v 10 7 6 A 8 7 4 4 AK4


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
1NT Pass 4

What action do you take?


EAST
Pass


A Yes, you have a hand rich in con-
trols, but it is still a minimum
notrump opening. Even if partner is
going to produce seven playing
tricks, you still have only a combined
11. Pass.

Q 2 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

SQJ94u 86 0 K95 4 2 4J6

The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
14 Pass 10 Pass
l Pass ?
What action do you take?

A Since you can't pass one heart, it
is a question of whether you should
bid one spade or one no trump. We
see no reason not to bid one spade -
at the one-level the fourth suit is nat-
ural, not forcing.

Q 3 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:

S9 7 A 8 7 2 AJ 10 6 3 4 A 8

The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
10 Pass 1l Pass

What do you bid now?

A Partner's response has improved
your hand considerably, but it is a
whit short of the values for a jump
raise. Bid two hearts. Unless partner
can bid again you are in the right con-
tract.

Q 4 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:


AAJ763 95oK844872


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
1 Dbl ?
What do you bid now?


WEST


A Your spades behind East's double
strengthens your hand, but not
enough to do anything rash. For the
moment, just ignore East's double
and make your normal response of
one spade, and see what develops.

Q 5 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

SK J 10 7 9 5 3 8 6 3 e.AQ5


The bidding has proceeded
SOUTH WEST NORTH
Pass Pass 14
t ctin do ou ke?
What action do you take?


EAST
Pass


A In terms of high cards you have a
borderline jump raise to three spades.
However, your flat hand is a liability,
and we advise caution. Raise to two
spades, but proceed to game if part-
ner shows any sign of life.

Q 6 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

SK 10 7 6 2 8 A 8 7 3 J 82

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

A You have the values to make
game try, and the best way to start is
with a Stayman inquiry. If partner
responds in spades, we would ven-
ture to game. If he bids anything else,
bid two spades as game try.

exhibit were available for
purchase by sealed bid.
Each year high school
art instructors submit
their students' finest
original art for consid-
eration at the juried art
show. A distinguished
panel of art profession-
als reviews the entries
and selects 25 original
pieces as the Best of the
Best. The top 25 will be
announced at a special

came from the columns written
by Higel under the pen name

Venice Theatre, under Artistic
Director Murray Chase, has a
reputation for excellence. The
two-man play performed at
Pioneer Days proved that even
when the theater takes its show
Son the road, the audience can
expect perfection.
The first Pioneer Days

days in together in a wonderful old-
lin and fashioned day. Lois Steketee sat
George at lunch telling stories about

Bed-wetting requires kind, REX MORGAN By Woody Wilson and Graham Nolan
Bed-wetting requires kind,

intelligent attention 6291 wAM


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
We are grandparents in our
early 80s with a 9-year-old
grandson living with us.
He is a bed-wetter, but in
every other way normal,
intelligent and healthy. We
take him to the bathroom
about three or four hours
after bedtime, but often
are too late. You addressed
bed-wetting before, but a
repeat would help us get
through this difficult time.
- S.B.
ANSWER: These re-
marks are not addressed
to you, S.B. The tone in
your letter indicates you
handle a matter that is
embarrassing to your
grandson in a compas-
sionate, humane way.
Bed-wetting is something
the child has no control
over. Punishment and be-
littling are not productive.
At age 5, 7 percent of
boys and 3 percent of
girls wet the bed. By age
10, the percentages are
3 and 2. A significant
number of children,
therefore, outgrow the
problem. Nerves that con-
trol bladder function may
have matured or bladder
capacity increased.
For your grandson, it
helps to limit his fluid in-
take to one 8-ounce glass
at the evening meal and
then discourage any more
drinking before bedtime
if bedtime takes place
about three hours later.
Have your grandson
empty his bladder before
going to bed. If you wake
him about an hour earlier
than you now do (two to
three hours later), that could
keep him dry through the
rest of the night. Bladder
training increases the size
of his bladder. Ask him to
delay in responding to the
urge to urinate during the
day. Allowing more urine to
fill the bladder stretches it
and increases the volume of
urine it holds.
The next step is alarms
that are activated by the
first few drops of moisture.
They either make a noise
or cause a vibration that
wakens the boy. Alarms
have a success rate of
75 percent to 95 percent.
You can find them at
medical-supply stores.
Desmopressin is a
medicine that slows
urine production. Your
grandson can use it if he's
invited to sleep over at
another's house. If you
plan to use it, try it out at
home a few times first to
see how it works for him.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
Is it possible to develop an
allergy to milk later in life?
I'm 45 and have drunk
milk and eaten ice cream
oon


Dr. Donohue
Readers may
write Dr
Donohue at
PO. Box
536475,
Orlando,
FL 32853-6475
with enjoyment. Now they
give me cramps and diar-
rhea. Do you think this is
an allergy? I'm not allergic
to anything else. D.M.
ANSWER: More likely
than an allergy is a defi-
ciency in lactase. It's an
intestinal-tract enzyme
that digests lactose, milk
sugar. We're born with a
good supply of lactase.
It's a good thing we are,
because milk is the chief
infant nutrition. With age,
the intestine loses much
of the enzyme. Blacks
develop the insufficiency
more than whites do, but
all ethnic groups have a
loss of the enzyme with
age. Doctors can test for
lactase deficiency.
Undigested milk causes
cramping and diarrhea.
Avoidance of dairy prod-
ucts is one way to handle
the problem. Or you can
buy the lactase enzyme
and treat milk with it. You
also can find dairy prod-
ucts for sale that have had
lactase added to them.
Yogurt is generally safe
to eat for those with lac-
tase deficiency.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I have a skin disease
named prurigo nodularis.
I treat it with cortisone
creams and ointments,
but I still itch and scratch
my skin. It's impossible
to ignore the itching. The
nodules are spreading
over my legs and arms.
Any suggestions? E.M.
ANSWER: Prurigo
nodularis consists of small
skin bumps (nodules)
found mostly on the arms
and legs. The bumps are
unbearably itchy and
drive a person to scratch
for relief. The bumps are
reddish or purple. The
cause of this ailment
hasn't been discovered.
You have taken the stan-
dard treatment drugs of
the cortisone family.
Antihistamines might
lessen your itching. Some-
times injection of the
nodules with one of the
cortisone drugs takes care
of the problem. Some der-
matologists have found
that thalidomide or cyclo-
sporine can alleviate the
itch and stop the spread of
the nodules. Combining
thalidomide with ultra-
violet B light is another
accepted treatment.

Yesterday's Jumbles: SPOIL AWAKE TANNED CLOUDY
Answer: After tasting his perfectly cooked, medium-rare
steak, the customer said this WELL DONE

Cooking with oil


Dear Heloise: What are
the differences among veg-
etable oil, canola oil, corn oil
and olive oil? How should
each of these oils be used,
and can they be substituted
for each other in recipes? -
Debbie, via email
Good question, and it can
be confusing! The main dif-
ference is what each is made
from. All are "vegetable" oils,
except for the olive oil.
Vegetable oil is made from
soybeans. It is good for all-
purpose cooking and baking
because of its light taste.
Canola oil is made from
canola seed and also has a
light taste, which makes it
good for all types of cook-
ing. It is a healthy choice
for using in dressings and
marinades.
Corn oil is made from
cor. It is good for deep
frying and rich in flavor.
Olive oil is made from
olives, which are actually
a fruit from the olive tree.
It has a fruity, full-bodied
flavor, but every olive will
create different-flavored
oil depending on the olive
used and where it was
harvested.
In baking, oils can be a
substitute for melted butter,
margarine or shortening in
recipes. Heloise

Ginger hint
Dear Heloise: I use
fresh ginger in brewing
tea and cooking. However,
I have found that as a root
it deteriorates quickly, even
in the refrigerator. So, I peel
and grate all of the ginger at
once, measure it in half tea-
spoons onto a plate, freeze


Hints from Heloise

it, put the frozen lumps into
a plastic zip bag and store
them in the freezer. The gin-
ger is ready to brew or cook
with the next time I need it.
- Jamie D. in Houston
I love ginger, too! Freezing
ginger does work well, and
it can be stored for up to six
months this way. Refrigera-
tor storage requires wrap-
ping the leftover, unpeeled
ginger tightly in paper
towels and then placing in
a sealable plastic bag. The
ginger will store for up to
three weeks this way.
- Heloise

Sugar conversion
Dear Heloise: I would
like to know how many
cups there are in 1/2 pound
of powdered sugar. I have
recipes that call for a pound
or 1/2 pound of sugar
and don't know what that
equates to in cups. Thank
you. Allie, via email
The answer, Allie, is 1 and
7/8 cups. Just a reminder:
Powdered sugar (also known
as confectioners' sugar)
should be sifted before
placing it into your measur-
ing cup and then leveled
off with some type of flat
surface. Heloise

DEAR ABBY: My
18-year-old-daughter,
"Olympia," is a beautiful,
intelligent young woman
who graduated from high
school last spring, was ac-
cepted to two universities
and started her first job.
When she lost it recently,
she was devastated. In-
stead of trying to find an-
other one, she decided to
turn to prostitution. When
I asked her why, she said
she doesn't want to work
her butt off for peanuts.
Other family members
and I have tried to make
Olympia see reason, but
she's determined to do
this. I am extremely frus-
trated with her decision.
I have warned her about
the dangers she'll face
in that "occupation." I
know she's of age now and
needs to make her own
choices, but I'm afraid
for her and don't want to
lose her if we have a huge
argument over this. What
can I do? -ANXIOUS
MOM IN SACRAMENTO
DEAR ANXIOUS
MOM: For an "adult,"
your daughter's decision-
making leaves a lot to be
desired. Prostitution is ille-
gal. It's not a viable career
option. Is she aware that
her "line of work" offers no
job security and the ben-
efits will last only as long
as her looks hold up?
Regardless of the argu-
ment that may ensue, let
her know that although
you love her, you are wor-
ried sick about her, and
disappointed and furi-
ous at her poor judgment
because she has far more
to offer than what she's
selling. Warn her she's
heading down a path
that's hard to come back
from. If she won't change
her mind, then you must
accept that your daughter
will have to learn her les-
sons the hard way. But let
her know your door will be
open to her.
DEAR ABBY: Are you
supposed to ignore an
acquaintance when you
notice she's in a doctor's
waiting room with you?
(Especially if it's a spe-
cialist's office that makes
a particular condition
obvious to an otherwise
non-privy person?)


Dear Abby

This has happened
to me twice recently.
One time, I avoided the
acquaintance; the other,
I broke the silence and
said, "Is that you, So-
and-So?" Both times
it was awkward. I can
understand why someone
wouldn't want to be seen
at certain doctors' offices.
Should I have played
dumb? STRIVING FOR
DISCRETION IN NEW
YORK
DEAR STRIVING: No,
you should not have
"played dumb." In the fu-
ture, you should acknowl-
edge your acquaintance,
but refrain from asking
questions. Any questions,
including, "How are you?"
DEAR ABBY: I'm being
married in a few months
and there's still so much
to do. The only thing I
have decided so far is the
date and location. I have
gotten so stressed that I
have actually passed out.
I keep asking my fiance
to help me with decisions
and particulars for the
wedding, but he says, "It's
your job. You're the bride."
Then he continues his lazy
ways around the house.
How do I get him to help
me plan our wedding?
- BRIDE IN A PANIC
DEAR BRIDE: How do
I get you to realize you
can't change your fiance,
and that this is the man
he will be after your wed-
ding? If you manage to
pull this event together by
yourself, you will still have
a husband who is lazy
around the house and
refuses to help you even
when you become so
stressed that you pass out.
Your fiance isn't the last
man on planet Earth. If
he doesn't have any good
qualities you men-
tioned none you can
do better than this.


"Enter ye in at the strait gate for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many
there be which go in there at: Because strait is the gate,
and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and
few there be that find it."-- Matt 7:13, 14.
Heaven is no walk in or pushover. "Except a man be
born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."

Opening lead: Two of A

Follow the bidding and play of this
deal, then decide: Did someone err,
or is the result normal?
West led the two of spades,
declarer played low from dummy and
East inserted the ten, ducked by


declarer. East returned the queen of
spades, declarer ducked again and
East continued with a third spade,
forcing out the ace.
Declarer drove out the ace of clubs.
The defenders scored a third spade
trick to go with the ace of clubs and
took a total of three spade tricks and
a club and scored only those four
tricks. Was the result normal or did
someone err?
Actually, there were two egregious
errors. The lead looked like it was
from a four-card suit, so when East
won the first trick he should
immediately have shifted to a
diamond and the contract must fail.
However, declarer made an even
worse blunder. His best chance was
to find spades divided 4-4, so he
should have won the first spade trick
with the ace and forced out the ace of
clubs. The defenders can score no
more than four tricks and the game
coasts home.

Rotary art festival

caps week
The biggest winter festival in Venice must be the annual
Venice-Nokomis Rotary Art Festival. Saturday and Sunday,
Rotarians, juried artists and as many as 40,000 people will
roam the festival grounds at Venice Municipal Airport from 10 a.m.
to 5 p.m. There will be plenty of beer and festival food such as gyros
and fennel cakes. Soft drinks, fresh lemonade for the youngsters
and as much art as could be found in a god-sized museum.
Artists come from all over the United States with their tents and
their creations. The work ranges from elegant jewelry and hand-
made glass to life-sized statues made of bronze. Painters are
well represented, working in water, oil, acrylic and mixed media
to create all manner of originals and prints. Many are framed and
ready to hang.
The festival runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. Admission
is free although there is a modest charge for parking. Festival
proceeds benefit many local organizations.
For information, call 941-488-7794.
There also are two free concerts this week both on Thursday.
The first features Jan and Bill Antholz performing the music of
Mancini, Mozart and others at 11 a.m. at Venice Public Library,
301 S. Nokomis Ave. The second, which will feature country music,
is from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Centennial Park Gazebo in the
200 block of West Tampa Avenue. Bring lawn chairs or blankets to
the gazebo concert.
Asolo Repertory's production of "God of Carnage" byYasmina
Reza opens Friday in the Mertz Theatre at the FSU Center for the
Performing Arts, 5555 North Tamiami Trail, Sarasota.
For tickets, call 351-8000.

a mother in a comedic succession of
squabbles. Jerry Sloan is a successful writer
of advertising jingles that is married to an
equally successful lawyer. Living with the
happy couple is the not-so-happy Abe,
Jerry's curmudgeon father-in-law. Abe is

'YENTL; Jan. 20- April 26. In 19th
century Eastern Europe, options for young
women are few, and the study of Torah
and Talmud are forbidden. Yentl's only
hope of pursuing her dreams is to disguise
herself as a boy in order to learn. But when
she falls in love, she must decide whether
or not to reveal the truth. For everyone
who has wanted to do something and was
told they couldn't, and for everyone who
has loved the wrong person for the right
reason, this beautifully written play with
music resonates with pure magic. Asolo

Launch into the new year


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
There's nothing like a ride in space espe-
cially if you can skip the rigorous training
endured by real astronauts.
That's what I love about the Shuttle Launch
Experience at the Kennedy Space Center east of
Orlando. For those with a tendency toward motion
sickness, this experience also beats Mission
Space, which the NASA folks designed for Epcot
within the Walt Disney World Resort. Much as I
love coasters, I found Mission Space to be pretty
intense. The Shuttle Launch Experience, on the
other hand, I found to be just right.
The simulated space ride is inside a six-story
building known as the Shuttle Launch Simulation
Facility. As you make your way toward the "shut-
tle,' you view veteran astronauts talking about
their experiences. Soon you are entering the cap-
sule where you strap yourself into your seat with
several other brave souls. After the pre-launch
briefing by veteran shuttle commander Charlie
Bolden, the adventure begins, made all the more
realistic thanks to giant video screens, sound and
lighting affects. When at last, your capsule arrives
in "outer space,' the view is breathtaking.
Should you happen to be there Thursday, there
is a good chance that you can not only enjoy
the Shuttle Launch Experience but also view the
launch of the Wideband Global SATCOM 4 which
will serve United States military forces' communi-
cations purposes.
The bus tour of the space center also is a
must-do and included with your admission. Tours
depart every 15 minutes from 10 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.
Tours last about two hours and are included with
basic admission.
Everyday, there is the chance to meet an astro-
naut and, for an extra fee, to even have lunch with
an astronaut.

FEATURES EDITOR
The next directors tour from the Edison &
Ford Winter Estates will be to Palm Beach
on Saturday.
Tour attractions are the Corning Museum
Roadshow at the Norton Museum of Art and
Whitehall, the estate of the late Henry Flagler
who is best known for his railroad along the east
coast of Florida.
Of all the road trips and factory tours I took
with my parents long ago, my visits to the
Corning Glass Museum in Corning, N.Y, were
the best.
In those days, visitors could watch glass blow-
ers at work, turning out one-of-a-kind Steuben
works of art for presidents and kings to present to
one another. Examples of older Corning glass is


in the collection at the Estates. Changes in insur-
ance rules because of visitor safety issues ended
that too soon. Now thanks to the resurgence in
the popularity of hand-made glass, one can visit
hot shops from Tacoma, Wash. to Palm Beach.
The latter is temporary but at least the opportu-
nity exists for those who act on it.
To this day, Corning is known for its glassblow-
ing. This mobile "hotshop" enables people all over
the country to see glassblowing and learn more
about the art and the various techniques involved
in making a finished piece.
Visiting the Flagler Museum is timely because
this year marks the 100th anniversary of the
completion of the Key West Extension of the rail
line in 1912. Sadly, the line only lasted until 1935
when a category five hurricane destroyed several
sections. As it was too expensive to repair, the


Key West Extension ceased operations. Flagler's
private rail car on which he arrived in Key West
in 1912, is displayed at the Flagler Museum and
Whitehall Estate,
The day-long tour to the Norton and Flagler
venues will be led by Edison & Ford Winter
Estates president and CEO Chris Pendleton
and members of the Estates' curatorial staff.
Tour-goers will visit the Society of the Four Arts
Gardens and the Hulitar Sculpture Gardens on
the way to the Norton. Works by other contem-

Holiday Inn a hot spot for travelers


BY JOHN HACKWORTH
MANAGING EDITOR
on't be surprised if you run into a
pilot or two, or an airline attendant,
when you check into the Sarasota-
Airport Holiday Inn.
The luxurious, two-year old Holiday Inn cannot
boast of Gulf or bayfront views, but one of the
big pluses the hotel has is its proximity to the
Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport. And,
while your chances of running into a pilot are
good, so are your opportunities to perhaps meet
a celebrity or two such as country/western art-
ist Jason Aldean who find the convenience to
the airport accommodating. Hotel staff said Aldan
stayed there for a recent show in Bradenton.
The six-story hotel has a gorgeous atrium
adjacent to the Sporting News Grill, where you
can get anything from chicken fingers to steak,
and a contemporary-themed decor that includes
a wall of water which makes your ride upstairs in
a glass-lined elevator just a little more interesting.
The room sizes are adequate and are enhanced


by the cleanliness and the newness of the entire
facility.
Plush towels, over-sized televisions and com-
fortable beds are minor perks that make your stay
that much more satisfying.
A well-equipped exercise room is right across
the hall from a good-size indoor pool nice this time
of the year that features a jacuzzi and a waterfall
- not to mention steam and sauna rooms. Just
outside the pool is a lounge area that includes an
outdoor fire pit that can be a cozy place to have a
drink or relax on cool winter nights.
The hotel, just a couple of blocks from U.S. 41
and the John and Mabel Ringling Museum, The
Ca d'Zan Mansion and the Circus museums, is
close to almost everything that makes Sarasota a
place to visit for a long weekend. The Van Wezel
Performing Arts Hall, St. Armands Circle and
Siesta Key Beach are all within a few minutes of
the airport inn.
The staff goes out of its way to make every-
one's stay a good one, is probably the best thing
about the hotel.You're greeted by a well-dressed


front desk person who you instantly believe puts
you first. Bartenders, wait staff, anyone you come
in contact with, are obviously well versed in how
to make a person feel at home and important.
"We put a lot of work into training our staff,"
said Marshall Williamson, the hotel's director of
guest services. "That's the one thing you have to
get right."
You need only check online reviews of the hotel to
confirm its popularity with travelers and tourists.
For instance, this review from TripAdvisor
website:
"This hotel is like a boutique hotel at budget
prices. The rooms are very well thought out
albeit small. This hotel has the most number of
electrical outlets that I've seen in any hotel. No
issues with recharging iPods/iPhones/iPads or
other electrical devices, which is greatly appreci-
ated. Room also has a small refrigerator which is
helpful. Staff are responsive, we asked for a quiet
room and the person who checked us in made
sure that this was what we got. The pool is an
indoor pool, which is a tad different for this part of


PHOTO PROVIDED BY HOLIDAY INN


The six-story atrium welcomes visitors to the
Sarasota-Airport Holiday Inn.
Florida... If this is the new model Holiday Inn, the
future of this chain should be bright."
There is not a whole lot we can add except
that this location, 8009 15th St. E., just off Uni-
versity Drive, Sarasota, is an excellent one if you
have an early flight to catch or even if you want to
spend a weekend in Sarasota. For more informa-
tion, call 941-355-9000.

DeSoto County Fair opens Thursday


BY NANCI THEORET
SUN CORRESPONDENT
January marks the beginning of a certain
season here in Southwest Florida. And no,
it has nothing to do with snowbirds, tourists
or citrus. During the next few months, county
fairgrounds will shake off the dust and welcome
thousands of thrill-seekers, funnel-cake lovers
and contest attendees who might just witness
their neighbors or their children win pageant
crowns or talent titles.
And it begins in DeSoto County Thursday
when the gates open to the 59th annual DeSoto
County Fair, which offers musical entertainment,
those aforementioned beauty pageants and talent
shows and of course midway rides, cotton candy,
corndogs and other gooey confections.
The fair, this year themed "Blue Jeans &
Country Things,' runs from Thursday through Jan.
29 at the DeSoto County Fairgrounds, 100 Heard
St., off of U.S. 17.
The event typically attracts 10,000 to 12,000
people during its 11-day run, according to local
organizers.
"We always hope for good weather for the end
of January," says Michael Martin, vice president of
the all-volunteer fair association.
The DeSoto County Fair features different
themes almost nightly, including discounted mid-
way armbands, free admission for students and
churchgoers, and an entertainment lineup that
runs the gamut from elementary, middle and high
school talent shows, an opening night wrestling
show, a Jan. 28 performance by an international
mariachi band, and even a talent contest for
adults.
A gospel sing begins at 2 p.m. Sunday and
attracts a number of local churches. "It lasts for


two or three hours,' says Vernon Keen, former
fair association president. "Anyone who shows
up with a church bulletin from that day gets free
admission."
New this year is the Thursday night sneak
preview from 5 p.m. to close. Admission is $10
and includes free rides. The association has also
introduced Saturday matinees on the midway,
with $10 armbands for those attending between
noon and 5 p.m., and the Jan. 29 Final Fling Fam-
ily Day, where the $10 admission fee provides
10 hours of non-stop rides from 1 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Always popular is Midnight Madness, offered the
final Friday of the fair from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. for
$15.
Food is also another starting attraction of the
DeSoto County Fair. In addition to traditional fair
fare like hotdogs, hamburgers and funnel cakes,
local vendors serve up their specialties, including
a near-famous strawberry shortcake. Martin says
the Nocatee Church of Good will operate the
main concession stand, serving breakfast, lunch
and dinner entrees.
As one of Southwest Florida's more rural
counties, DeSoto's fair also focuses on farm
animals. But you won't find pig calling or don-
key racing here, although there is an animal
costume contest. 4-H members have spent
the past five months preparing pigs, poultry,
goats, rabbits and steer for judging. And for
older children it culminates with the pig and steer
auction on Jan. 27.
"No, we don't have racing pigs,"jokes Keen.
"We don't get into that kind of thing. Our fair is
more about the youth and the animals exhibits
are a big part of it. We're committed as a fair as-
sociation to providing ten $1,000 scholarships to
graduating DeSoto County seniors'"

Fantasy of Flight tops LLI trip list


BY JOHN HACKWORTH
MANAGING EDITOR
T here is still time to board the bus.That's the
word from members of the Lifelong Learn-
ing Institute who will kick off their annual
schedule of trips with a visit to Fantasy of Flight
near Orlando to experience the Tuskegee Airman
symposium, Feb. 11.
The trip includes lunch at the Fantasy of Flight
where participants can see more than 40 rare
airplanes at a facility dubbed "The World's
Greatest Aviation Attraction." Exhibits at Fan-
tasy of Flight include the opportunity to board
a real B-17 Flying Fortress and participate in a
mock World War II bombing mission. Visitors can
also take a ride in a hang glide simulator in the
Fun with Flight interactive center for families.
The main attraction for anyone traveling
with LLI that day will be Legends and Lega-
cies: A Symposium Series honoring the brave
Tuskegee Airman, the subject of several books
and documentaries and soon to be the stars in


a George Lucas produced film titled
"The Red Tails'"
The Tuskegee symposium is scheduled in
honor of Black History Month and several of the
original Tuskegee Airmen will be on hand to speak
to the audience. They will share their personal
experiences of how they became one of the
more decorated arms of the military in an era of
segregation.
"These trips have normally been sellouts in the
past but we have several seats left right now for
the trip,' said Cindy Gates, LLI trip coordinator.
The bus leaves the Edison College Charlotte
campus at 7:45 a.m. and cost is $63 for members
of LLI and $78 for non-members.
For more information, or to sign up, call the LLI
office at 941-637-3533.
LLI's next trip is scheduled March 7 when the
group embarks for Sanibel Island's Historical
School House Theater for an afternoon presen-
tation of "Das Barbecu,' a musical spoof of a
Hootenanny in Texas.

PCHS alumni Ralf Jean-Pierre returns as the

'Speare Bearer in one-man street Shakespeare show


PROVIDED BY THE 'SPEARE BEARER

Port Charlotte High School 2002 alumni
Ralf Jean-Pierre returns from NewYork
City as the 'Speare Bearer in his one-man
street Shakespeare show at 3:15 p.m. Friday at
the Port Charlotte High School Auditorium.
Jean-Pierre will showcase the Shakespeare
scenes he has prepared to perform on his
upcoming United States bicycle tour. The show is
45-minutes.
In January 2012, 'Speare Bearer, a zealous
and lunatic agent of Shakespeare, will launch
"One-Man Street Shakespeare On A Bike,' his
solo cross-country bicycle tour to bring Shake-
speare to the streets of U.S. cities and towns.
"One-Man Street Shakespeare On A Bike" will
feature a revolving repertory of famous scenes
from Shakespearean plays that deal with encoun-
tering and confronting fear in its various forms.
'Speare Bearer is the alter ego of Ralf Jean-
Pierre, a native Brooklyn performing artist and
singer-songwriter/rapper who is deeply inspired
by his heroes Prince, Richard Pryor, and Joe
Papp. Jean-Pierre is a dedicated student and
practitioner of various disciplines of performance,
from classical acting, to improve, stand up, and
sketch comedy, ballet and modern dance, clown-
ing etc. He has interned for world renowned
Clown Eric Davis, the Actor's Movement Studio,
among other varied artists and received a BFA


in Performing Arts from Savannah College of Art
and Design in 2007. He is working in collabo-
ration with director Jolie Tong on the building
and refining the repertoire for "One-Man Street
Shakespeare On A Bike." Jolie Tong has worked
on and off Broadway and received an MFA in
Directing from Brooklyn College, where she is
currently a faculty member. She is also a mono-
logue coach for the August Wilson Monologue
Competition.
'Speare Bearer will play all roles.The nine-
month bike tour will begin in Tallahassee and
hit major cities across the country, rolling back
into NewYork City in September for a culminat-
ing performance. An evolving tour schedule can
be found at http://thespearebearer.tumblr.com/
destinations.
Performances of "One-Man Street Shake-
speare On A Bike" will be free and performed in
guerrilla theater style in public spaces.
By breaking down barriers between artist and
audience and immersing passersby in the world of
Shakespeare's characters, 'Speare Bearer will draw
immediate and real connections from their stories to
the forces affecting American lives today.
Via his blog, "'Speare Bearer will chronicle his

The 'Ultimate Elvis Birthday Bash' tonight


PROVIDED BY THE VAN WEZEL PERFORMING
ARTS HALL
Go back in time with two of the most elec-
trifying rock and roll shows of the season.
At 8 p.m. today, it's the "Ultimate Elvis
Birthday Bash" with two of the most superb Elvis
entertainers on the planet and at 8 p.m.Thursday,
rock out to some all-time favorite hits with the
voices of Richard Nader's Doo Wop including
Charlie Thomas and The Drifters, Barbara Harris
of The Toys and more.
Scot Bruce and Mike Albert team up to bring
the most riveting tribute to the'King of Rock &
Roll' that you won't soon forget in 'The Ultimate
Elvis Birthday Bash."
Bruce performs as Elvis, the way we remember
him during his early career, followed by Albert,


whose "Ultimate Tribute" show has become
known worldwide for the respectful portrayal of
the late Elvis Presley.
Bruce's uncanny resemblance to the young
"King" (and his ability to sing, strum a guitar, and
swivel his hips), has led to appearances as Elvis
in music videos with Faith Hill and Sheryl Crow,
the California Lottery "Elvis" ad campaign, and
in several successful productions of Idols of the
King, including the historic Ryman Auditorium in
Nashville. Recently, he had the honor of perform-
ing with the legendary Jordanaires (Elvis' original
backup singers).
If you saw the True Hollywood Story: Elvis in
Hollywood on E! Entertainment Network, that was
Bruce played Elvis in the recreation scenes in
"True Hollywood Story: Elvis in Hollywood" on E!


Entertainment Network,
Together, they recreate the electrifying musical
excitement of the King, in a live, biographical concert.
Nader's Doo Wop Rock and Roll Show features
five unforgettable groups. Charlie Thomas and
the Drifters sing hits like "Under the Boardwalk"
and "This Magic Moment"' Harris of The Toys
is known for "Attack and A Lover's Concerto"
Tommy Mara, new leader of The Crests sings "16
Candles." George Galfo's Mystics take on "Hush-
abye" and "Don't Take the Star" and The Vogues
belt out "You're the One,' "The Land of Milk and
Honey" and more.

King Fisher Fleet


BY JON BAUMANN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
On any particular day at Fishermen's
Village of Punta Gorda you just may see
three generations of the Allen family
working the operation of the King Fisher Fleet, a
mainstay of the Village for over 30 years. There's
the owner Captain Ralph, his mother Helen, who
helps with the books, and the Captain's daugh-
ters Jan and Elissa, who help out whenever
they're needed doing whatever it takes to make
the business run smoothly.
The fleet, which has approximately two dozen
employees, including 11 boat captains
licensed by the U.S Coast Guard, is divided
into two main components, fishing charters
and sightseeing runs, with various options
offered in both areas.
Reservations are required for a fishing
charter either in the Gulf or the back bay of
the Charlotte Harbor Aquatic Preserve. Prices
range from $300 to $800 depending on the
length of the trip and the location of the fish-
ing.The private charter can accommodate up
to six anglers. Fleet staff provide everything
needed for fishing, including all tackle, bait,
licenses and fish cleaning.
"We get every range of angler you can imag-
ine,' said Captain Ralph. "Most of the fish that we
catch on the average charter, you're not going to
have to be a marathon conditioned athlete to deal
with." Fleet staff have witnessed some pretty big
catches, including tarpon and amberjack.
"There are people that hook on a tarpon and
they watch that thing come up and dance out
of the water, eyeball to eyeball with them, and it
just hooks the people for life," explained Captain
Ralph, on one of the reasons why he has anglers

come back time and time again to fish with King
Fisher. While the fishing charter business is a
big part of the operation, it is the sightseeing trips
on 100 seat double deck excursion boats that
make up the largest part of the business, with
thousands of customers annually.
Captain Ralph offers a variety of possibilities,
including full day island cruises, half day harbor
and river cruises, waterfront tours and their ever
popular sunset cruises, ranging in price from
$14 to $30 including tax depending on the type
of cruise desired. All of the tours are geared
toward family, with no alcohol permitted on
board any of the vessels.
While there are many beautiful sights to
behold on the water, nothing makes a trip more
desirable than spotting a dolphin.'When we go to
Cabbage Key and back, it is an unusual trip if we
don't have dolphins literally jumping along with
the boat at some point in that trip,' said Captain
Ralph. "It's the wake that the boat makes. The
dolphins like to body surf in that wake." Every trip
adds up to family fun.
The King Fisher Fleet has been named the best
charter boat service in Charlotte County by Sun

readers since the beginning of the poll in 1996.
The reason for this popularity year after year?
Captain Ralph Allen sums it up like this, "We're
a family run business. We all like what we do
here. How can you go wrong doing business in a


harbor like this?"

and sightseeing, along with cost and other infor-

The Charlotte Players presents the third
production of its 51st season, "Love, Sex
and the IRS"'
Two out-of-work male musicians who room
together in NYC, decide to file their tax return as
a married couple. Wild twists of fate, sight gags,
mistaken identities and hilarious comic lines
ensue as an IRS investigation unfolds.
One man masquerades as the housewife
with the help of the other's fiance with whom he
is having an affair, while unexpected visits from


next production
mom and an ex-girlfriend add to the frenzi.
Gary Obeldobel is directing this production
written by William Van Zandt and Jane Milmore.
"Love, Sex and the IRS" will be performed at
the Cultural Center Theater, 2280 Aaron St.,
Port Charlotte.
Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Friday-Saturday,
2 p.m. Sunday and at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 26-28.
Tickets are $18 for adults and $9 for stu-
dents and are available by calling
941-625-4175 ext 220.
For additional information, call the Charlotte
Players office at 941-255-1022.


Rental agreement in hand, Mr. Janson (played by Gene Callan), the landlord of an all male apart-
ment, loudly reiterates that females are not allowed.


"Love, Sex and the IRS"and add a few bottles
of wine being poured into the mouth of
'mother' played by Carol Louisgnan by the
IRS agent played by Mike Gilbert will surely
become a funny scene in the upcoming Char-

over his shoulder and escorts her out.

Bluesman Ben Prestage

headlining Friday

night SteveFest


BY CHRIS PORTER
EXECUTIVE EDITOR
The first time I heard Ben Prestage, I
thought, "This is some good blues. I'd like to
see this guy."
I had no idea what he looked like, but I pictured
him wearing old clothes and a long beard, playing
an ancient slide guitar with other crazy primitive
instruments within easy reach. In my vision, he
was performing in a dimly lit bar with a wood floor,
perched on a tiny stage.
You know what? I got pretty close. Due to the
miracle of youtube.com, anyone can see this not-
so-old Florida guy does have a long beard, wears
garb that could be described as hobo-chic, and
plays freaky old guitars, banjos, dobros, fiddles,
even a hopped-up diddly-bow called a Lowebow.
Prestage, in fact, is a regular one-man and, with
a bass drums and high-hat symbol he works with
foot pedals.
And while he's not booked into a dimly lit bar,
he's set to play the Punta Gorda Woman's Club on
Sullivan Street. Which, by the way, has one of the
best wooden floors in three counties. Just right for
stomping around when he goes into his signature
song, "Alligator Man."
While Prestage has won several major awards
and played all over Florida and the world, this
is a rare chance to catch him in Punta Gorda.
Especially with a wood floor.
The show is part of the SteveFest series, which
means our old friends, Still Friends, will be the
opening act. Suggested donation is $12, it starts


Bluesman Ben Prestage headlining Friday

The 'elegantly casual' Captain'


BY BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
W A e call the restaurant 'elegantly
casual,'" said Bob Forst, general
Manager of the Captain's Table on
Charlotte Harbor. "Some people like to dress in
a suit and tie, but others dress 'Florida casual'
in shirts and shorts. And we definitely have the
best view around'"
It's tough to argue with that assessment. The
restaurant gleams with both its own impeccable
shine and the sunlit views through the surround-
ing glass or out on the deck. Its enviable position
atop Harpoon Harry's in Fisherman's Village
gives diners a vantage point that few can beat.
As you enter the restaurant, elegant couches
invite you to sit, while a life-size statue of "The
Captain" tells you to relax and feel at home.
The menu has something for everyone. Unlike
some seafood restaurants that offer a few steaks
and chicken dishes for the "landlubbers," the Cap-
tain's Table expands those offerings to include
unusual choices of each.
Their Delmonico steak is dry-rubbed with their
13-spice signature rub. The filet mignon is served
with blush b6arnaise sauce, port wine reduction
or gorgonzola demi glaze; or dry-rubbed and
stuffed with imported gorgonzola.
The pork tenderloin is grilled and served with
a mango Kentucky bourbon bbq sauce. The rack
of lamb is hand rubbed with crushed walnuts and
special seasonings, oven roasted and served

with a Dijon brown sauce and mint jelly
For something different, try Chicken Pepperoni
- breast of chicken stuffed with ricotta cheese
and baked with marinara sauce, mozzarella
cheese and pepperoni, served over linguini.
Seafood dishes are a twist from the usual, too.
Ravioli is stuffed with lobster and served with
a shitake mushroom and brandy cream sauce.
Seafood Fettuccine includes fresh Gulf shrimp,
scallops, Prince Edward Island mussels and
clams sauteed in a sherry butter and herb sauce.
"We also have tilapia, grouper, salmon, shrimp,
cod and many other fish," Forst said.
For those who can't decide, the Captain's
Table's Surf & Turf includes a center-cut filet
mignon and a broiled Maine lobster tail.

'America at War: Three Women's Perspectives'

portrayed by Betty Jean Steinshouer


BY CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Betty Jean Steinshouer will be presenting
"America at War: Three Women's Perspec-
tives," a program sponsored by the Florida
Humanities Council and the Florida Department
of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, in Englewood
at 2 p.m. Tuesday at The Friends of the Elsie
Quirk Library.
Steinshouer, a literary historian and Chau-
tauqua presenter, has toured 43 states and
published numerous scholarly articles and
papers. She has spent decades researching her
characters, and each presentation is unique.
Steinshouer is also the author of several books,
the most recent and amusing being "E-Reader
Planet," to help readers who may be reluctant
to become e-readers. By the time she visits
Englewood, new editions of her "Travels with Willa
Cather: Poems from the Road" and "Red Cloud
to Cross Creek: More Poems from the Road," will
also be available as e-books.
At Elsie Quirk Library, Steinshouer has previo-


4thAnnisa 11


uly portrayed Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, Marjory
Stoneman Douglas, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and
Willa Cather. On Jan. 24 she will return to present
"America at War'" Steinshouer will demonstrate
how Willa Cather, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings and
Gertrude Stein played very different yet impor-
tant roles prior to and during World War II. After
a recent performance of "America at War one
reviewer from Arcadia wrote: "There were several
views to every issue. Patriotism should be a
bright shining light, ever before us. Knowledge is
the key to remembering history."
Steinshouer begins as Willa Cather, author of
the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel "One of Ours"
that tells of her cousin's death on the battlefield
in France during the First World War. Most people
at the time believed that WWI was "the war to end
all wars" that would "make the world safe for de-
mocracy"' Cather, convinced that Hitler was bent
on destroying Europe, disagreed with President
Roosevelt's "wait and see" decision about com-
mitting American troops to battle against Nazi
Germany.

As Rawlings, Steinshouer will illustrate how
Rawlings served as an enemy plane spotter on
the Florida coast. Rawlings also had a unique
perspective on the Roosevelts, especially Elea-
nor's struggle to ensure equality in the military The
author of'The Yearling" and "Cross Creek" answered
hundreds of letters from soldiers who read her
books in Foreign Service editions during the war.
Rawlings' husband drove an ambulance, "Heming-
way-style,' on the dangerous Burma Front.
Steinshouer will conclude with a portrayal
of Stein who spent four years as a refugee in
Nazi-occupied France during WWII and made a
statement for Eric Sevareid on "Voice of America"
to express jubilation over the arrival of Allies,
especially American Gl's.

Marie Laforge

Mango Bistro's European flair


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
With true artists, their artistic talents carry
through to all aspects of their lives.
They create perfect arrangements of
flowers, their homes are decorated with style, and
they become beautifully creative chefs.
Originally from France, Marie Laforge came
to this country more than 20 years ago. "I come
from a family of artists,' she said, "and I was actu-
ally an artist. I was always interested in anything
creative"' When she moved to the United States, it
was to California, where she developed a love for
cooking and food.
"They (Californians) are ethnic people and
California is a progressive state," Laforge said.
"Living there really influenced the way I look at
restaurants and food-which is that they should
be interesting, healthy and fun'"
And that is exactly how she views her res-
taurant, Mango Bistro. "I would say it's almost a
European/California style,' she said. "It has that
healthy twist that California has'"
The restaurant's European influence can be
found in the savory and sweet French crepes and
paninis, while the salads and wraps provide the
California fare.
Laforge's partner, Ricardo Ruggiero brings
some Latin flavor to the restaurant. Originally
from Brazil, he is in charge of the wine selections,


but Laforge says he also is an expert in another
area. "Ricardo is passionate about our coffees.
We have delicious breakfasts-everything's fresh
and tasty."
You can order crepes filled with a variety of fill-
ings for any of the three meals served at Mango
Bistro. The ingredients Laforge includes in her
recipes are just bought from the market fresh,
just as the Europeans do. Her desire to be able
to buy fresh close to the restaurant is one of the
reasons Laforge began the farmer's market in
Olde Englewood Village.
Open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Thursday, the
market offers a variety of fruits, vegetables, fresh
breads, gourmet French foods, fresh seafood,
plants and much more. "When I lived in California,
there was a farmer's market,' she said. "I
just love people and fresh food, and talking
about food."
In her free time, Laforge enjoys her artwork
and of course, cooking. "I love to cook for fun,"
she said. She says she also loves to be outside
and spend time with her daughter.
Mango Bistro is open 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Monday -Thursday and 9 a.m. to 9:45 p.m. Friday-
Saturday. (the kitchen closes 9 p.m.) Live music
begins at 6:45 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
'We have a lot of live music on the weekend,"
Laforge said. "People love to come in the evening
and dance."

'Red Tails' is a tribute to


black pilots' place in history


BY JULIE HINDS
DETROIT FREE PRESS
From "Sands of Iwo Jima" to "The Hurt
Locker,' there have been too many war
movies to count.
Yet little screen time has been devoted to the
Tuskegee Airmen, the pioneering World War II
African-American aviators who fought a two-front
battle: against the Germans overseas and against
racism at home.
But starting Friday, America will get to see a
"Top Gun"-style version of the Tuskegee Airmen
story in "Red Tails," a major action movie exec-
utive produced by "Star Wars" creator George
Lucas and paid for with his own money.
"I think the movie should get maybe four or
five Oscars, at least,' said Arthur Green, president
of the Detroit chapter of the Tuskegee Airmen Inc.,
who has seen an advance screening.
For the real-life Tuskegee Airmen, who are
now in their mid-80s to mid-90s and include
pilots, bombardiers, gunners, mechanics and
support staff, "Red Tails" has a much bigger
mission than entertaining or spreading the word
of their valor.
It's about inspiring young people, said Harry
Stewart Jr., 87, of Bloomfield Township, Mich.,
who flew 43 combat missions in Europe.
"It shows, 'Hey, look what those guys did. If I
work and I really want something like this, I can go
ahead and do it, too,'" Stewart said. "I think it gives
the kids pride and encouragement."
For too long, the Tuskegee Airmen were an
unknown chapter of World War II.
'We were being left out of history," said William
Horton Thompson, 92, of Detroit. "We weren't
necessarily talking about it. We were busy trying
to make a living'.
When Stewart got back from the war and would
mention black fighter pilots, he often got the same
response. "People would look at me and basically
say, 'Who were they?'"
The Tuskegee Airmen succeeded despite the
attitude of the U.S. military, which was then seg-
regated and had many commanders who didn't
think African Americans should or could fly planes
in combat.
Now, about 70 years late, these pioneering
members of the greatest generation are getting
the action-packed war movie they deserve.
"Red Tails" is as exciting and patriotic as "Cap-
tain America."' Only it's inspired by the real deal,
not a comic book character.
To portray these modern-day heroes, these
are superheroes,' said "Red Tails" co star Elijah
Kelley at a recent advance screening in Birming-
ham, Mich., attended by several Tuskegee Airmen
from Detroit.
Lucas has been on a 23-year journey to get
the movie to the big screen. In a recent interview
with USA Today, he talked about approaching a
half-dozen major studio heads about a financial
partnership, but they were concerned about the
film's marketability. So he spent $58 million of his
own money to make it.
Although the Tuskegee Airmen have a lengthy
history that stretches back to a small program at
the Tuskegee Institute, "Red Tails" focuses on the
exploits of the 332nd Fighter Group based at the
Ramitelli air base in Italy.
It follows the pilots as they escort bombers
on vital missions in enemy territory, shoot down
German aircraft and strafe targets such as trains
and ships whenever possible. The movie's title
comes from the distinctive red tails of their P 51
Mustangs.


The movie has a mostly African-American cast:
Terrence Howard, Cuba Gooding Jr. and a number
of rising young actors play fictional versions of
the pilots, mechanics and commanding officers
of the 332nd.
It's directed by Anthony Hemingway, whose
credits include acclaimed TV series "Treme"
and "The Wire," and is co-written by
John Ridley ("Three Kings," "Undercover
Brother") and "Boondocks" creator
Aaron McGruder.
Instead of a hero's welcome after the war,
the Tuskegee Airmen met the same discrimination
they faced before it. Stewart, who also was at
Ramitelli, flew 43 combat missions and later
was part of the winning team at a 1949 Air
Force gunnery meet, was turned down
when he applied to two airlines.
One rejected him without explanation.The
other offered a reason through one of its
employment officers. "He said, 'Well, can you
imagine the confidence of the people in the
airplane if they should see you walking down the
aisle?'"
Stewart went on to become a top executive at
ANR Pipeline.
Though "Red Tails" crunches several years
of adventures into a couple of hours, it gets the
spirit of the Tuskegee Airmen right, said Dr. Brian
Smith, director of the Tuskegee Airmen National
Museum.
