New M



utility



rates set

By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Look for Venice water/sewer
utility rates to increase 6 percent
overall in 2012 and 3 percent
annually for the next four years.
That was the
recommendation
of a stakeholder
group and utilities "
rate consultant


that was adopted I '
unanimously by
Venice City Coun-
cil Tuesday. HOLIC
Council directed
staff to draft an ordinance to
implement the new rates. The
new ordinance will go through
two public readings over the
next few months.
Council intends to implement
the initial 3 percent hike in April,
followed by another 3 percent in
October, in part to make up for
the lack of an increase over the
past year and a half.
A 4.5 percent rate increase was
supposed to take effect almost
a year and a half ago (followed
by annual increases of 3 per-
cent), butVenice residents got a
reprieve when the rate increase
was deferred while the city con-
ducted the rate study.
The study, by Burton and
Associates, concluded the city
will be well served with the
3 percent rate. Burton offered
the option to defer the increase
until next year by adopting a
3.75 percent annual increase for
five years, but council chose not
to kick the can down the road.
It's not an across-the-board
increase. Some bills will go up,
some down.
Multi-family units are the big
winners in the revised rates.
They'll see a 15 percent reduc-
tion in base charges and about a
4 percent reduction overall.
Their complaints that
the city was overcharging for
administrative services on multi-
family units served by a single
meter led to the rate study
almost year ago and may have
put to rest at least two threats of
a lawsuit.
"We did get to a resolution
that a lot of people in the multi-
family class were looking for,"
Burton said.
Single-family homes will see
a 3 percent increase. An aver-
age homeowner who uses 3,000
gallons of water per month will
see his the bill go up $2.03, from
$67.80 to $71.19.
A multi-family customer
with, for example, 32 units
using 60,000 gallons, will see
her monthly bill go down from
$1,663.78 to $1,594.98, a 4.1 per-
cent decrease.
Commercial users will see
larger increases up a little
for those using 10,000 gallons
per month; 6 percent more for
those using more than 30,000
gallons per month; and up
4 percent for those using 50,000

PO OKs widening

After a 20-year wait, approval was given Monday for widening the rest of the Venice Bypass to six lanes. Only the
northern part of the project is funded, however.


Planning group votes for six-lane bypass


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

A seven-month excursion
to further study whether it's
necessary to widen U.S. 41
Venice Bypass at all-- the No. 1
regional transportation project
for the past 20 years has
ended.
The Sarasota-Manatee Met-
ropolitan Planning Organiza-
tion, a group of elected officials,
voted 10-4 on Monday to widen
the full 2.6-mile section of the
bypass from Bird Bay to Center
Road.
Voting against were Sarasota
County commissioners Nora
Patterson and Joe Barbetta, city
of SarasotaVice Mayor Terry
Turner and Manatee County
Commissioner Joe McClash.
Most members wanted to
end the delay, once again mak-
ing it the top priority for the
transportation board.
"Let's give them some prog-
ress here and vote yes," said
Manatee County Commissioner
Donna Hayes.
Longboat Key Commissioner
Phill Younger observed that
North County heralded the
recent expansion of Route 301
to alleviate congestion on U.S.
41 through Sarasota.
"That was sorely needed.
A fantastic improvement,"
Younger said. "We need to give
equal accord to south Sarasota
County as we do to the north.
"It's pretty obvious. It's time to


move forward with six lanes."
All sevenVenice City Coun-
cil members testified before
the MPO board, imploring a
"yes" vote to fix the current
bottleneck.
The MPO voted to accept a
peer review of transportation
studies, conducted by con-
sultant Renaissance Planning
Group, which concluded it's
safer, more efficient and more
appropriate to widen the road
from four to six lanes using
traffic signals. That vote gets the
project on a state Department
of Transportation five-year
work plan.
The alternative was to keep
the bypass, or sections of it, at
four lanes and install a series
of roundabouts. It would be
slower, but safer, proponents
said.
Barbetta bristled at insinua-
tions the MPO was seeking to
divert money elsewhere and
questioned the value of the
project.
In May the MPO voted to hire
a consultant to conduct the
peer review.
"The project is now estimated
at $68 million. Somebody's got
to tell me how do you justify
$49 million on right-of-way
(purchases) for a three-minute
benefit," Barbetta asked.
"I don't think the need is
sufficiently there at this point
in time and doesn't fit with my
philosophy," Patterson said.
She tried unsuccessfully to


split the question into authoriz-
ing funds for two-thirds of the
project, but not the southern
third that ends at Center Road
within county jurisdiction.
"Since it isn't funded, and no
one can afford it, there is plenty
of time to see after they have
those six-lane sections to see if
they want the southern portion
done that way," Patterson said.
Those opposed to widening
the bypass said it isn't pedes-
trian-friendly, and would save
up to $5 million that could be
spent on other projects.
Dan Hardy, of Renaissance
Planning Group, which con-
ducted the peer review, said
the only way to eliminate the
current bottleneck is to widen
the road.
"Even though it doesn't look
like a bypass, it does provide a
way around the island and does
serve its function regionally,"
Hardy said. "It's the big game
in town going north and south
in Sarasota County. Widening
is the quickest, easiest way to
reduce congestion and appro-
priate for the context along the
bypass."
Months ago two advisory
transportation committees
overwhelmingly voted to sup-
port widening the entire stretch
as well.
The middle and north sec-
tions of the bypass are already
funded, with construction
scheduled for 2014-16.

Term-limits


case sent to


high court

By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

The state Supreme Court is a
step closer to deciding whether
term limits are constitutional for
Sarasota County commissioners.
The Second District Court of
Appeal in Lakeland on Tuesday
handed to the
high court the case
filed by 16 county
residents. They
want the court to
dissolve a circuit
court judge's 2005
injunction that
prevents enforce- THAXTON
ment of a 1998
charter amendment.
Voters had overwhelmingly
approved limiting county
commissioners to two terms.
Although unconstitutional and
unenforceable, the 1998 provi-
sion still is in the county charter.
The case is being handled
pro bono by Sarasota attorney
Andrea Mogensen. The plain-
tiffs are from different political
parties and differ in how they
view term limits generally, but
they are united in their belief
that the charter amendment that
requires term limits should be
enforceable.
"We will move very quickly
now that we are in the Supreme
Court," said Michael Barfield,
a paralegal associated with
Mogensen.
If the Supreme Court takes
the case and rules that Sarasota
County's term limits are enforce-
able, Jon Thaxton may not be
able to run for a fourth term as
county commissioner this year.
Currently his only opponent is
former North Port city com-
missioner Vanessa Carusone, a
fellow Republican.
The issue of term limits came
before the Sarasota circuit court
last year after a district court on
Florida's east coast ruled a limit
of three terms constitutional for
Broward County commission-
ers. Fearing the uncertainty that
would result in Sarasota County
because of the Broward case,
county commissioners voted to
place a ballot question regard-
ing a limit of three terms for
commissioners on the ballot of
the Tuesday Republican primary.
After looking at the ballot ques-
tion approved by commission-
ers, which some say was mis-
leading, the 16 plaintiffs asked

VHS baseball team fined, sanctioned for rules violations


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

After more than nine months
of investigation, the Florida
High School Athletic Association
levied fines totally more than
$10,000 on the Venice High
baseball program for violations
dating as far back as 2008.
According to the FHSAA, Ven-
ice received a reprimand, which
is an official letter placed in its


file for future reference, and was
fined a total of $12,500 for the
violations.
Of the $12,500, $7,500 is due
and payable to the FHSAA. The
remaining $5,000 is held in abey-
ance and will not have to be paid
unless additional violations are
committed by the VHS baseball
program during the probation-
ary period.
The school is also required to
pay $2,771.05 for investigative


fees. In total, Venice owes
$10,271.05.
In addition, the program was
placed on restrictive probation
for the 2012-13 school year and
administrative probation for
2011-12 and 2012-13, ending on
June 1, 2013.
According to the FHSAA,
administrative probation is
when "the school is repri-
manded, fined and served notice
that it is in a period of warning


for a minimum of one calendar
year and additional violations
during this time will result in
increased penalties which may
include expulsion."
Under restrictive probation,
which is the hardest of the
penalties, the school faces the
same penalties as administra-
tive probation, but the on-field
disruption is the VHS baseball

Area, state unemployment drop


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

The percentage of those
without jobs in Sarasota County
dropped below double digits
for the first time in a long while
in December, while Charlotte
dipped right to the cusp, with
10 percent of its workforce
unemployed, according to fig-
ures from the state Department
of Economic Opportunity.
The positive news follows
both the state and national
trend: Statewide, unemploy-
ment dropped below 10 percent
for the first time since April
2009, registering at 9.9 percent


last month. The rate is now
more than 2 percentage points
lower than in December 2010,
and at its lowest level in two
and a half years.
Despite adding about 113,900
jobs since the same time last
year, Florida's jobless rate con-
tinues to be above the national
average, which in December
was 8.5 percent a drop from
8.7 percent the prior month.
Sarasota and Charlotte coun-
ties both saw their figures drop
0.3 percentage points from
November to December, with
Sarasota sliding from 10.1 per-
cent to 9.8 percent, and Char-
lotte from 10.3 percent to its


current level.
Those numbers look even
better when they're compared
to a year ago, when Charlotte
and Sarasota counties' rates
were 12.1 percent and 11.8 per-
cent, respectively.
Statewide, 913,000 people
remain unemployed out of a
total workforce of more than
9.2 million.

County tax revenue projections improving


From JOSH TAYLOR
ABC 7

County officials have
unveiled budget projections,
saying there are signs of it sta-
bilizing. In fact, county leaders
say they spent $23 million less
this past year than expected.
For the fourth year in a row,
property values in Sarasota
County and the tax money col-
lected from them are expected
to drop a projected 4 percent
again this year. That means

from 2008 numbers, the county
is working with around $96 mil-
lion less per year.
The projected 4 percent
decrease would be the small-
est since 2008. In 2009, for
example, values fell more than
15 percent. Last year it was
6 percent.
County Commissioner Chris-
tine Robinson says they are see-
ing a leveling out and possibly

Projections now have prop-

What does it all mean for
residents?
While the numbers are
preliminary, it appears service
levels for things like librar-
ies and law enforcement can
remain about the same, while
it's expected commissioners will
not be looking to raise taxes.

Reid takes helm of Sarasota County


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER
Procurement and
employee morale are
among Randall Reid's
priorities as he takes the
helm this week as Sarasota
County administrator.
Reid, 57, previously the
Alachua County manager
for 12 years, was selected
by Sarasota County com-
missioners in November
to succeed Jim Ley. Dur-
ing the middle of his first
day on the job Monday,
Reid discussed his new
position.
"I tend to dedicate and
totally immerse myself
in the life of the com-
munity when I serve as
manager," said Reid,


who previously worked
in Martin County and
Titusville. "I hope to do
that here as well."
He hopes to "rebuild
and revitalize" Sarasota
County.
Reid, who moved here
last week, met Thursday
with outgoing interim
county administrator
Terry Lewis, who started
work as interim Sarasota
city manager Monday.
Reid started his workday
Monday at 7 a.m. and
made a video presenta-
tion for employees that
was broadcast on the
county's Intranet. It
also is available on the
county's website, www.
scgov.net.
"We will indeed be


accountable as an orga-
nization," Reid said in
the video. "As a manager
I simply expect account-
ability from employees
for their actions. I want
to be able to empower
them and give them the
responsibility to perform
in their positions."
Reid's top priority is
working on the county's
procurement issues.
But he realizes that too
much focus there can be
harmful.
"Our staff here has
gone through a very trau-
matic time," he said. "We
have a lot of people who
feel the focus has been
on purchasing and pro-
curement, when county
government does many


things. The concentra-
tion and focus has been
very negative to employ-
ees that weren't even
involved in that."
For the first two
months, Reid said, he
will be "listening and
then trying to learn. I
don't profess to know
everything about Sara-
sota County." Then he
will assess current county
programs.
"Many things have
been ongoing for years
and I have some tech-
niques that have been
used elsewhere," he said,
adding that he'll take
the initiative to start
new programs where
appropriate.
Reid's tight Monday


Sarasota schools rank 4th in state


By RACHAEL TAFT
STAFF WRITER
The Sarasota County
School District ranked
fourth in the state, accord-
ing to district rankings
released by the Florida
Department of Education
Monday.
"For us, it's evidence
of the hard work of our
classroom teachers," said
Sarasota Superintendent
LoriWhite.
She noted how the
community supported the
teachers by voting to be
taxed more for education.
Those extra funds


allowed Sarasota to spend
$8,575 per student last year.
This is the first time
the FDOE has publicly
announced district rank-
ings, which are based on
Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test scores.
The release of the rank-
ings was an attempt to
increase public dialogue
about education and make
information more visible,
Education Commissioner
Gerard Robinson said.
"It does give public rec-
ognition to our hard work,"
White said. "It's not about
beating another school dis-
trict. It's about continuing


to show improvement."
White said that Sara-
sota had moved up in its
ranking, based on her own
calculations from last year.
"I think that's pretty
good, but I think we can
do better," said Sarasota
School Board Chair Caro-
line Zucker, who has been
on the board 13 of the last
20 years. "I'm looking to
the day we are No. 1."
When asked about the
district's strengths, Zucker
pointed to the arts.
"We have maintained
art and music," she said,
adding that those sub-
jects allow students to


develop both sides of the
brain. When cuts have to
be made, she said, other
districts slash arts first.
"We have not done that."
The rankings do not
take into account a num-
ber of important factors,
such as poverty level, size
and funding.
District rankings are just
the first step in a larger
initiative. The FDOE plans
to expand the ranking sys-
tem to also rank elemen-
tary, middle and high
schools in the state.
Staff writer Carol
Sakowitz conir, itl', iii to
this report.


schedule also included
meeting with commis-
sioners his bosses -
who have regular com-
mission meetings this
week in Sarasota.
Commissioner Nora
Patterson said her short-
term priority for Reid "is
to get to know the com-
munity and also think
about (hiring) a second
deputy administrator, as
we are very short-staffed
right now at the top -
sort of an unusual situa-
tion for a bureaucracy."
Bill Little is the county's
only deputy admin-
istrator. Dave Bullock
resigned last year to
become interim town


manager in Longboat
Key.
Reid said he plans to go
"out in the community"
over the next couple of
months to make presen-
tations, but primarily he
will listen to residents.
"This is a great county,"
Reid said. "We have great
employees here. There
have been issues and
I think they have been
dealt with, and they are
being dealt with in
terms of the purchasing
scandal.
"We have a credibility
problem and ... we have
to try to restore that."

Graser has a need for speed


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

"What little boy does not want
to be a race car driver?" said
Dr. Shaun Graser, a 56-year-old
Venice dentist who for the past
12 months has been racing with
18-year-olds at Daytona Inter-
national Speedway and Sebring
International Raceway.
As a teenager he watched road
racing on TV and when his dad
purchased a Ford Pinto he fitted
it with mag wheels. It was like
driving a race car until the day
he hit a corner curb on a rainy
road and a wheel broke off.
In 1990 he acquired a Trans
Am and three years later took it
to Sebring, but going into a turn
he braked hard and in a cloud
of smoke ran off the track into
the dirt.
In 2006, he acquired an
incredibly powerful Corvette and
could pass cars on the straight-
aways but it was too heavy for
covering, so he changed to a
Camaro. Accompanied by his
24-year-old son, in 2007 he

Shaun Graser alongside his car in the pits at Daytona International
Speedway prior to participating in his first race of the day.


took the two-day intense racing
course at Panoz Racing School
in Atlanta.
A year ago he bought his first
purpose-built, customized race
car, a 1990 Mazda Miata. Light
and less powerful with no power
steering, it had been completely
stripped out and fitted with


a full tubular-frame roll cage.
Secured with a five-way harness,
he sits in a racing seat with no
cushion and as he drives he feels
exhilaration.
Around him he has a fire
suppression system if there's
a fire, he pulls a lever and foam
goes everywhere.


"It really is very safe," he said.
"If the car flips over and the
engine is running or the elec-
trical system is still on, there
is a chance of fire. However,
there are two electrical cut-off
switches, one for the workers
who can reach in to operate and
the other inside I can use."
The Sports Car Club of
America mandates that driv-
ers start as a novice taking two
weekends of racing school -
repeating the things he did in
Atlanta without an instructor
in the car. Training culminates
in a racing start to assess your
level of racing ability. Approval
is the authority to participate in
regional races at specific venues.
Everyone is going in the
same direction, and there are
specific rules on making a pass
and being in a specific position
before the turn. Volunteer track
workers use a series of flags to
improve safety as you drive as
fast as you possibly can. A blue
flag with a yellow strip advises
allowing a faster driver to pass;
a yellow flag is a caution that


there's a problem ahead; and the
dreaded black flag indicates it
is obligatory to quit as you have
done something really bad.
Completing enough regional
races can get you to the next
national level and another
move takes you to professional
racing. Presently he competes
in one of 10 classes of the Spec
Miata group, where there may
be 200 or more cars at an event.
Graser races every other month
and intends to get his national
license to race more frequently
against much higher caliber
drivers.
Wife Paula is concerned and
wants to make sure he is safe,
so sometimes she accompanies
him to the track, towing his race
car with a van filled with tools.
"My goal is to commit to rac-
ing for a year to find out where
I am going to go after that," he
said. "I do have a streak for want-
ing to race cars and if I am to go
national racing, in the future I
am going to get a faster car."

Jacaranda Trace to add dementia services


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

"We are currently look-
ing at an assisted-living
dementia model provid-
ing some services for
Alzheimer's and dementia
care, and within the next
two years we will have
that service offered here
at Jacaranda Trace," said
Greg Patterson, co-owner
with Steve Roskamp.
Although they have 32
acres at the 3600 William
Penn Way complex, he
said, "Given the state of
the economy and the
real estate market, I do
not foresee us building
independent-living units
at this time, following
a general trend in this


industry."
They
completed
and opened
up their
new Barclay
Building
in 2007,
providing PATTERSON
more than
200 units of independent
living, and they have a
third future phase where
they could build another
200 units at this site.
Today their main com-
petition is not another
similar venue, but the
individual's home, Pat-
terson said. They have
residents coming in
planning for their future
and they all say the same
thing they are ready


and cannot wait to move
in, but they have a home
they have to sell.
"It is the obstacle," said
Patterson, "so we work
with them to help in the
process."
They have been doing
it for 25 years and can
typically handle every
facet. Jacaranda Trace is
a small-enough company
to be very flexible about
what it does, with the
capability to modify its
product depending upon
what is going on in the
economy and what its
perception is of the need
moving forward.
Mentor Bob Roskamp,
father of Patterson's
partner, has much experi-
ence in developing a


specialized center for the
treatment of dementia
and Alzheimer's, so he
will provide input for the
planned new facility in
Venice.
Patterson graduated
Stetson University in
Deland, where he and
Roskamp met, with a
degree in finance and
business administration
before attending Stetson
Law School in St. Peters-
burg, graduating and
practicing law locally for
two years.
Joining Bob Roskamp's
Freedom Group in 1989
as general counsel, he
helped developed senior
living communities
across the U.S., primar-
ily in Florida, Arizona,


Michigan and Pennsylva-
nia. After a merger with
American Retirement
Corporation, he stayed as
senior vice president of
development for a couple
of years before rejoining
the Roskamps to start
Roskamp Management
Company, which became
Roskamp & Patterson
Management Company
on acquiring Jacaranda
Trace in 2001.
Moving away from law
in 1998 with the merger,
he now oversees opera-
tions and development
for the Venice facility and
Sarasota Bay Club, a sixty-
bed skilled nursing facil-
ity where on average they
have 70 admissions and
discharges every month.


"No longer is your
skilled nursing facility
your extended, long-term
care," said Patterson. "It is
now more of an in-and-
out type of care where
following hospitalization
patients move for therapy
and rehabilitation."
Steve Roskamp recently
announced Jacaranda
Trace's cooperative proj-
ect with Gulf Coast Medi-
cal Group and Venice
Regional Medical Center,
which are providing
comprehensive services
including therapy, home
health, physician and
phlebotomy, podiatry,
psychiatry, psychology
and primary care.

COURT
FROM PAGE 1

Senior Circuit Judge Jack
R. Schoonover to declare
it invalid, and he did. But
the judge chose not to act
on Mogensen's request that
he rule on the status of the
2005 injunction making
term limits unenforceable,
prompting the plaintiffs
to ask the district court
to certify their case to the
Supreme Court.
Meanwhile, in December
the high court accepted
jurisdiction in the Broward
County case. It's unclear
how the high court's ruling
in that case will affect Sara-
sota County commissioners.
The same legal question is
presented in both cases.
If the high court rules on
the Broward case before the
Sarasota elections qualifying
deadline June 8 poten-
tial candidates may know
whether Thaxton is eligible
to run for the District 5 seat
and can determine their
futures. If it does not issue
a decision before the dead-
line, potential candidates
here could be in limbo.
A motion to consolidate
the Sarasota and Broward
cases will be filed in the
Supreme Court today. Then
Barfield said they expect
the court to act on both
certification and consoli-
dation quickly, due to the
importance of the issue.
While the county unsuc-
cessfully opposed the
plaintiffs regarding the
ballot question, it joined
Mogensen in asking the
judge to rule on the 2005
injunction.

program won't be allowed

preseason classic.
"We are still in the
process of reviewing,"
said Venice High athletics
director Pete Dombroski
of the 300-page report.
"There is really a lot of stuff
we are going through. A lot
of it is policy and proce-
dures, which have been
corrected."
"I hadn't had a chance
to view it or talk with the
administration about it,"
said Venice High baseball
head coach Craig Faulkner.
"Hoping to meet as early
as tomorrow (Tuesday)."
Of seven alleged viola-
tions, Venice High was
found to have committed
five:
*Venice High didn't
properly execute a facility
usage agreement.
Each time a non-VHS
team uses the facility a
facility usage form has to
be filled out.
"You can't bring in
nonschool players to come
in and used the facilities,"
said Dombroski. "It needs
to be on file who is using
it."
For this, the FHSAA
finedVenice $5,000 ($2,500
in abeyance) as the school
agreed that facility agree-
ments weren't executed for
the summer of 2008 and
2009.
*Venice High provided


impermissible benefits
by allowing students and
nonschool team to use its
facilities without a fully
executed facility usage
agreement.
The FHSAA levied
another fine of $5,000
($2,500 in abeyance), but
this violation is different
from the previous one
because non-VHS students
participated atVHS facili-
ties and thus got imper-
missible benefits.
AVenice High repre-
sentative had improper
contact with a prospective
student by providing a tour
of the VHS facilities prior
to being the student being
accepted or enrolled at the
school.
The association fined
the school $2,500 for this
violation.
*Venice High facilitated
the finances for the non-
school team through a rep-
resentative of the school's

The school was also
fined $2,500 for this
violation.
According to Dombroski,
this means equipment
fromVHS can't be used by
a non-VHS team.
AVHS representative
offered private lessons
during the off-season and
school year.
The school acknowl-
edged that head coach
Craig Faulkner provided
extra assistance beyond
practice hours but never
for profit. However, during
an internal investigation
byVenice, it found that an
assistant coach did offer
lessons before the 2010-11
season for profit.
This violation put the
program on restrictive pro-
bation and cost it partici-
pation in a 2013 preseason
classic.
The school and baseball
program weren't found to

reduction in base fees
was conservative, he said,
and could have easily
been more, but the group
agreed to 15 percent in
the interest of settling the
controversy.

thanked the stakehold-
ers for serving. He asked
them Lichtle and Deb
Reynolds representing
master metered multi-
family customers; Bill
Meiter, Fred Francis and
Mike Rafferty representing
single family customers;


have committed two other
alleged violations, includ-
ing recruiting.
The first allegation
stated the school allowed
four students to par-
ticipate while ineligible,
play on a summer league
team prior to enrolling
and being accepted into
VHS and then enroll
within 365 days of that
participation.
The FHSAA found
Venice was not in violation
of this as the school board
granted school choice in
March/April of their stu-
dents' eighth-grade year,
they were enrolled before
the summer of their ninth-
grade year and did not
participate in any summer
program until after the
last day of school of their
eighth-grade year.

as we were instructed,"

The state didn't find any
wrongdoing in an allega-
tion that aVHS represen-

to participate on the VHS

According to Dombroski,
the school can appeal but

These baseball findings

People who spend many hours working with
vibrating tools and who experience numbness
in their fingers may be suffering from Hand-
Arm Vibration Syndrome. Symptoms of this
condition include pain, tingling, numbness,
and increased sensitivity to cold. Smokers and
people who work in cold temperatures may be
particularly vulnerable to this disorder, which


stems from constriction of the arteries.
Research has shown that, as the arteries in the
hand are subjected to prolonged vibration,
they become constricted, which may, in turn,
starve nerves. At some point, it is possible that
the numbness caused by the vibration could
lead to permanent damage. Needless to say,
those who experience numbness are
encouraged to have the cause diagnosed.

Rebuilding a foundation of credibility


Day One of the Randall H. Reid
regime got off to a hopeful start
Monday.
The new Sarasota County adminis-
trator began his work day by record-
ing a video introducing himself to the
county's 2,000-plus employees and
explaining his vision for the future.
He met with staff and held a formal
press conference, which is unusual
around here. The introductory video
was later posted online (at scgov.
net) for anyone with an Internet
connection.
Reid stressed the themes of
openness of government, transpar-
ency of government operations
and the accessibility government
staff, laudable goals all. At the press
conference and on the video he
spoke about the need to "rebuild
and revitalize" Sarasota County
government. He repeatedly used the
words "accountability," "credibility,"
"ethical values," "teamwork" and
"character."
Reid acknowledged that the
past year's procurement scandal


- which triggered the exit of former
County Administrator Jim Ley and
eventually brought Reid here had
been "a very traumatic time" for
employees, most of whom had noth-
ing to do with the routine business
of procurement. He acknowledged
the scandal had damaged the cred-
ibility of Sarasota County within the
community at large and around the
state. The big goal, he said, was to
"restore Sarasota County to being
considered a premier county" in
Florida.
"I am a cultural change agent,"
Reid stated, although his demeanor
seemed far from anything that
would be remotely considered revo-
lutionary. That's probably a good
sign also.
We were struck by Reid's sober,
businesslike style. He didn't smile
a lot if at all during his eight-
minute video or the half-hour press
conference. He was articulate and
confident behind the microphone,
but he didn't stretch an inch to
show off, to ingratiate himself to his


audience or to or hammer anyone
with the fear of God. The message
was serious, and it seemed to be
delivered by a steady, thoughtful,
serious man.
Reid, 57, has had a long career in
public administration. Originally
from Ohio, he began his career in
Vandalia, Ohio, before moving west
to take the top administrative job
in Green River, Wyo. He has been
in Florida since 1987, when he took
over as city manager in Titusville.
He moved on to Martin County
in 1994 and for the past 12 years
he has been the county manager
of Alachua County, centered in
Gainesville, the home of the Uni-
versity of Florida. From what we
hear, Alachua was sorry to see him
go.
The purchasing scandal certainly
has undermined Sarasota County's
credibility, but, as Reid noted, "pur-
chasing and procurement is not the
principle cause for government."
Government exists to provide ser-
vices, like public safety, parks and


recreation, roads, zoning and water.
People who work in government need
to be responsive in their jobs and
accountable to taxpayers. "The idea
of credibility," he said, grows from
that premise that "what we say we
will do, we will do; the promises we
say we will keep, we will keep; the
services we will give are the best."
Basic and clear.
Reid also pledged to bring people
into the process, to "truly engage citi-
zens in their government." Again, that
means ensuring citizens have access,
that government is transparent and
that it attempts to hold "meaningful
dialogues" so that citizens know local
government "is deeply attached to
them."
From our vantage point, Sarasota
County already does a good job with
that. A big part of Reid's job will
be to get county employees to find
ways to do it better and to convince
a skeptical public that they abso-
lutely serious about doing it better.
On Day One he was off to a hopeful
start.


Welcome to the Sun


/


Brooks
Brown


It's the six-month anniver-
sary of the Sun, and I must tell
you publishing this paper has
been a fascinating experience.
From the initial panic -
"Oh, my gosh, we're really
going to launch this paper" -
to settling into the routine of
weekly publishing, to routinely
adding improvements, it has
been an exciting venture.
I've been editor of dailies and
weeklies, all of which have car-
ried hard and soft news, but this
is the first time I've been editor
of a paper strictly dedicated to
bringing readers stories about
their neighbors and commu-
nities at large. There are no
controversial topics involved,
just stories about the joys of
living along the sun coast and
how our friends and neighbors
continually work to make the
experience even better. Going
forward we will add more stories
of inspiration about how people
are overcoming hardships and
moving on with their lives.
When we launched the Sun,
we knew we wanted to present a
feature newspapers that would
reach readers from Venice to
the northern border of Sarasota,
including South Venice, Laurel,
Nokomis, Osprey and Lakewood
Ranch. Our stories focus on you,
your neighbors and the com-
munities you live in throughout
those areas. We've told the sto-
ries of our cultural coast and all
the opportunities for entertain-
ment the area offers. You may
especially remember the profiles
featuring the women who head
up our cultural organizations.


Readers seem to especially
like our Inquiring Photographer
feature, recipes from Saltwater
Cafe's Chef Rolf, ourWanted:
forever homes, where we feature
adoptable pets, as well as the
themed stories in each issue.
While our readers like the
themes, coming up with them is
one of my most daunting tasks.
Every year I have to come up
with 52 new ideas. My coworkers
will tell you I go around the room
harassing them for ideas. So here
is my challenge to you, our read-
ers: More than anything we want
this to be your paper, so please
feel free to send me your ideas
for topics you would enjoy read-
ing about. You can email me at
bbrown@venicegondolier.com.
The Sun also has become a
great advertising vehicle for
businesses throughout the area
as evidenced by the feedback
we get from people like Tom
Aimar from the Power of One:
"Thank you so much for the
ads in the Sun newspaper for
The Power of One. Because of
those ads, I have had so many
new people coming into my
shop, and when we ask them
where they have seen our ads,
they all say the Sun newspaper.
Advertising does work and the
money spent is certainly worth
it. Best regards and Happy New
Year, Tom Aimar."
Our rack locations have grown
to nearly 600 and continue
increasing weekly. Those racks
carry nearly 12,000 papers.
Please continue reading the
Sun as it expands. We have
some new surprises coming
your way soon, and we hope
you'll enjoy them as much as
we enjoy bringing them to you.
Thanks for reading and
advertising.

the Sun, a weekly paper cover-
ing Sarasota County for the Sun

WOULD A RENOVATED CIRCUS ARENA COMPETE WITH THE PERFORMING ARTS CENTER
PLANNED FOR VENICE HIGH SCHOOL? CALL US AT 941-2071111.


Incompatible. I agree with
the caller who thought it
would be ridiculous to put a
5,000-capacity sports arena
so close to the runways at
the Venice airport, which are
increasingly used by large jet
aircraft. We would never think
of putting a children's hospital
in such close proximity, why
would we expose 5,000 people
to the same risk? By the way,
has anyone seen the holes
in the roof of this ark? Drive
by and see for yourself. Also,
where are they going to park
the 3,000 or 4,000 cars for an
event? Maybe they could put
them on the runways and stop
the planes for a few hours. If
this building is in such great
shape, why not move it to a
safe place or maybe move the
airport? They do not belong
together.
Sold. To the person who said
if Obama wins the election,
he's bought it: Now that the
activist Republican Supreme
Court declared that corpora-
tions are people, elections will
always be bought. So if Rom-
ney wins, he will have bought
it also.
Sez who? As far as the
county continuing to give
grants to nonprofit agencies, I
would vote no on that. Inter-
estingly enough, after hearing
them say that it was required
to perform those services and
that it was cheaper for the
state to do it, I did an informa-
tion document request to Sara-
sota County to tell us what the
laws were that it had to. And
they couldn't come up with
anything. I also asked as far as
criteria and the stuff I got was
very weak.
Different rodent. About
rats on the South Jetty: I think
they're talking about squirrels.
I've been here for 12 years and
go to the South Jetty almost


Let 'em


Have It
every day and I have yet to see
one rat. I have yet to see one
mouse, let alone a rat. I see
gulls and pelicans and all sorts
of wildlife, but no rats. I don't
know where they're coming
from.
No, thanks. Please, please,
please do not bring back Mary
Kay Ruppel.
Pipeline protest. A massive
display against the proposed
Canada-Texas pipeline. Nine
hundred and fifty environmen-
talists burned their SUVs and
other large vehicles along the
proposed pipeline route. Fifty
of the protesters were from
Florida who said that we don't
need oil from offshore drilling
in Florida either.
No reason. The only reason
that I ever bought the Gondo-
lier was to get the community
calendar. There actually is
no reason to buy it anymore.
Instead of expanding it and
making it more inclusive,
you've made it useless.
Editor's Note: We've put the
calendar into the hands of the


community. As long as the
entries conform to a few rules,
they will continue to run, but
we can't make anyone use it.
Stop. Sarasota County
should not continue to give
grants to nonprofit agencies.
Bad idea. The plan for this
energy-economic zone is a
really bad idea and could turn
out to be Sarasota's version of
Solyndra.
By force. Sarasota County
should not be giving our tax
money to nonprofits or to
charities. Charitable contribu-
tions should come from the
person who wants to donate.
We should not be forced to give
our tax money to the county,
allowing it to distribute it.
Tax broke. I am opposed
to Sarasota County giving
money to nonprofit organiza-
tions of its choice. I prefer to
choose them myself. I don't
think it's right that we're giving
money to specific religious
organizations. It seems that is
a violation of the separation
of church and state. I also just
don't like the fact that it's mak-
ing the choice of the donation
and I can't write it off my taxes.
So that needs to be stopped.

A compassionate clinic


ANN
FAVREAU
GUEST COLUMNIST

It can't be easy to pick up
the phone and admit that
you need help, but at least
30 people a month call the
Venice and Englewood Lions
Club's Vision Center to do just
that.
They lay bare their finan-
cial situations and rely on the
Lions to help them with vision
and hearing problems by
scheduling appointments.
Many have to arrange trans-
portation or rely on the bus
to get them to the clinic. They
fast in order to have a blood
sugar test and patiently wait
to proceed through differ-
ent screening stations. It is a
morning that will have a posi-
tive affect on their lives.
I have been volunteering at
the clinic for eight years. The
thing that strikes me most
about the Lions who give up
the first Thursday morning of
every month to work here is
a sense of compassion. They
treat all who come through the
door with dignity and respect.
Sometimes it isn't easy.
Many of the men and
women have mental illness
as one of their medical issues.
Some are angry about the
lives they are forced to lead
and that resentment spills
over onto the volunteers. The
Lions do their best to diffuse
the situation and provide the
help they can.
They look beyond the worn
clothing and footwear to see
the person within. Nurses
and doctors do their utmost
to speak in layman's terms to
determine medical history,
explain what they are doing
and what steps have to be
taken to ensure healthy eyes
and ears.
An important component of
the clinic is simply listening.
I have seen frightened
women shedding tears of
joy when they know that
someone hears their con-
cerns. Old men smile when a


volunteer makes eye contact
and engages them in conver-
sation. It is often loneliness
that affects them as much as
eye problems. When a har-
ried grandmother can talk
about the children she cares
for in her neighborhood and
receives acknowledgement
that she is doing all she can, it
comforts her.
No one scorns a teenager
with tattoos and multiple ear
piercings who is half asleep
at this early hour. They praise
her for taking the initiative to
help herself by taking advan-
tage of these services.
Caregivers who accom-
pany relatives and friends
often need the moral support
given by the Lions. They are
not forgotten as they push
the wheelchairs and hold the
pocketbooks and canvas bags
heavy with all that is impor-
tant and cannot be out of
sight of anxious owners.
Lions listen to the tales of
elders who relate how Lions in
other places provided glasses
when they were children or
made a neighbor's house
handicapped accessible.
The screenings include
reading an eye chart, a blood
sugar test given by a regis-
tered nurse, refraction reading
and glaucoma test by an
ophthalmologist. A hearing
test is conducted by a doctor
of audiology. When a plan of
action is established that the
Lions will financially support,
there is often a sigh of relief.
The Venice and Englewood
Lions including John Logan,
Gary and Sandy Nieskes,
Madeline Ostrowski, Wayne
Westerman, Al King, Claire
Callahan and Noel Crosby put
action behind the motto "We
Serve."
The Lions Club Clinic is
located at the Venice Regional
Medical Center HealthPark,
1289 Jacaranda Boulevard,
Venice. For information on
Lions Club services, call
941-486-6065.

Ann Favreau, an educator
for 27 years, currently resides
in Venice.


I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


More work to do


On Jan. 16, a day was held in
remembrance of an individual
who offered of himself and
the willingness to receive God
to eradicate some ideals that
were deemed acceptable in
our society and that were held
for a duration of time.
Dr. King will be remembered.
I contemplate whether Dr.
King would have truly wanted
a day indicated to his memory
and events he and others were
exposed to, if he would have
wanted to have been given that
observance with his name, his
image, his words detailed. His life
was ended abruptly and quickly.
Freedom is for the living. That
essence of freedom, the time and
belief of prayer, the strength of
perseverance, it is for the living.
Dr. King achieved a lot. There
is still a lot more to achieve for
this nation and those within
that nation. That nation under
God. Perhaps this nation will be
cradled, just as a young child,
and more will be achieved for
the progress of everyone and
respect to humanity.
Happy birthday, Dr. King.

People breathe
Editor:
As a living, breathing human
being you must know corpora-
tions are not people, money is
not speech.
A resolution to this effect is
being circulated across Amer-
ica, and San Francisco, Los
Angeles, New York City and the
state of Montana have come
aboard in one form or another.
In an attempt to get the
governing bodies in Sarasota
County to take a stand and
pass the resolution, I sent an
email to the Sarasota County
commissioners Sarasota city
commissioners, Venice City
Council and the North Port
city commissioners.
County Commissioner Jon
Thaxton replied via email:
"Frank: Local officials do not
have the authority to interpret


constitutional law. These sug-
gestions need to be addressed
by either the U.S. Supreme
Court or U.S. Congress."
County Commissioner Caro-
lyn Mason replied via email:
"Thank you, Mr. Galford, for
sharing your comments and
concerns with me. I really
appreciate it."
County Commissioner Nora
Patterson replied via email:
"Thank you for your
thoughts on this."
To Commissioner Jon Thax-
ton I replied via email:
"Jon: Every city, town, county,
state every American is
suffering because big-money
lobbyists control our govern-
ment. It is the gateway issue to
nearly every issue that affects
our own community.
"If you don't want to admit
that corporations are not peo-
ple and money is not speech
that's fine, but your reasoning
and reply are flawed. If San
Francisco, L.A. and NewYork
City can do it, then there is no
reason for Sarasota County, the
city of Sarasota, the city of Ven-
ice and the city of North Port
not supporting this resolution."
The few responses I got were
just about what I expected. I
did not think it would be this
easy so, to the power of the
press to help.
The idea is reasonable: If
you're a human being you
know that corporations are
not people and money is not
speech. This is an effort to get
our federal government to pay
attention and to fix this, and
with your help we can succeed.

No nukes in Iran
Editor:
The letter "Enforce sanctions
on Iran" is factually incorrect
when it states "Iran has been
working toward building a
nuclear weapon since 2003." In
fact, the U.S. National Intel-
ligence Estimate reports of 2007
and 2011 stated that Iran ended
its nuclear weapons program
in 2003 and has not restored
it. Iran has signed the Nuclear


Non-Proliferation Treaty and
has never been in violation of it.
Almost all of the propa-
ganda and hostility in the
U.S. against Iran come from
Israel and its powerful lobby in
Washington, which has been
trying for years to provoke a
U.S. attack on Iran in order
to remove a regime that is
unfriendly to Israel.
The U.S. should dialogue
and trade with Iran, not
threaten it with harsher sanc-
tions or, even worse, military
action. We need to end the for-
eign wars that we are currently
in and not start new ones. That
is how to protect America.

Questions of balance
Editor:
I question whether the letter
"Get facts straight on national
debt" was actually fact or fiction.
Yes, Clinton had a balanced
budget in 1995. How come?
Clinton fought the Republican-
led Congress and finally caved
and signed the Republican bud-
get in 1995, which was balanced
for the first time in 30 years.
A recession, tax cuts and
increases in military spending,
etc., did eliminate the 1990s
surplus. However, the Bush
Administration and a Republi-
can Congress cut the amount
of the yearly deficit over the
next several years and by
2006 Bush redeemed his 2004
pledge. Remember, budget
deficit and national debt are
two different things.
When President George W
Bush took office, our national
debt was $5.768 trillion. When
he left it was $10.626 trillion;
that's nearly double. It rose by
about $697 billion a year.
However, during Obama's
presidency the nation debt has
risen by an average of $1.723 tril-
lion year, or $1.116 trillion more
per year than it rose under Bush.
Don't forget the Democrats won
back control of Congress in the
November 2006 elections.

BOYS BASKETBALL CLASS 7A-DISTRICT 11




Hann, Flerlage power Venice to win


By ROB SHORE
SPORTS WRITER

Whether the memories of
a 23-point victory two weeks
earlier were too fresh or the
Charlotte High School players
just got caught looking ahead to
county rival Port Charlotte, the
Tarpons just didn't look ready
Tuesday night when Venice
came to town.
That was just fine with the
Indians.
Chris Hann scored a game-
high 31 points and Zach Flerlage
added 25 as Venice caught Char-
lotte flatfooted in a 66-58 victory
in a contest that could prove
crucial as the Class 7A-District
11 tournament approaches.


The contest was a totally dif-
ferent game from Charlotte's
65-42 victory over the Indians in
Venice on Jan. 6 that went to a
running clock.
"We're a totally different
team," Venice coach James
Slaton said. "I think more than
anything, we've really turned the
corner as a team. We're playing
at a really high level."
Hann and Flerlage certainly
were, combining for 29 points of
Venice's 36 points by halftime.
WithVenice's victory, the Indi-
ans (10-10 overall, 5-4 district)
moved into a tie with Charlotte
in the district standings. Char-
lotte (14-8, 5-4) has lost its last
two district games.
"We weren't altogether


mentally ready for this," Char-
lotte senior Ryan Bailey said. "It's
no one's fault but ours."
Charlotte stayed within strik-
ing distance throughout much
of the second half, but poor
shooting stunted any chance
of a rally. The Tarpons only hit
1-of-10 shots from the floor in
the fourth quarter and made just
7-of-16 free throws.
"Venice bothered us, bottom
line," Charlotte coach Tom Mas-
solio said. "They hit all the shots.
We didn't hit anything, we didn't
execute."
Two exchanges really got
under Massolio's skin. The Tar-
pons turned the ball over toward
the end of the second and third
quarters, wasting chances for a


final basket. In the latter case,
a careless turnover by Adrian
Ivankovic cost the Tarpons a
chance for a potential tying
basket.
Venice capitalized on both
with scored of their own, a
coast-to-coast dash by Flerlage
just before halftime and a Nate
Curtner bucket on an inbound
play at the end of the third
quarter. Both plays noticeably
deflated the Charlotte players.
"That's four points we're giving
up they never should have had,"
Massolio said. "It's a totally dif-
ferent ballgame. I'm just disap-
pointed in my guys right now."
Ryan Bailey led Charlotte

BOYS SOCCER CLASS 7A-DISTRICT 11 QUARTERFINAL



Venice falls to Sarasota; ends season


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

For whatever reason, the Ven-
ice High boys soccer team didn't
play like it has been playing for
the last two and a half weeks.
So on Monday the season
ended for the Indians as No. 5
seed Sarasota scored two goals
in a two-minute span early in
the first half en route to a 3-0
win in the Class 7A-District 11
quarterfinal at Sarasota High's
Dr. Gene M. Pillot Soccer Field.
The Sailors (8-9-4) will play at
top-seeded Braden River tonight
in the district semifinal.
Since the new year began,
Venice has captured victories
in three of its last four matches,
including a 2-1 win over Sara-
sota on Jan. 4.
The teams split two matches,
as Sarasota picked up a 2-0 win
on Nov. 17.
"The first part of the season
we had a hard time getting a
rhythm because we had missing
guys and pieces to our puzzle


missing," said Venice coach Seth
Jones. "We kind of got that back
a little bit. Tonight we couldn't
find that to get ourselves a goal
or get ourselves ahead. When we

were a better passing team than
we were tonight. We just could
not find a rhythm."
Venice opened the match on
the offensive and picked up
three corner kicks within the


first three minutes.
However, the corner kicks
didn't produce any shots on goal
for the Indians (6-9-2).
On Sarasota's second shot, the
Sailors found the back of the net.
On a rush to the net, Ian Grubb
got the ball to Austin Garraus,
who kicked one into the right cor-
ner for a goal in the 11th minute.
On its next shot two
minutes later Sarasota went
ahead 2-0 on a 35-yard direct
kick from Hunter Barcomb from
the left wing. The ball sailed past
Venice keeper Mason Johnson
into the far corner.
"We looked like we really had
something going to start off with
and they came and scored a
goal," said Jones. "Even one goal
it doesn't hurt too bad but when
they scored on the direct kick
that kind of took the wind out of
our sails a little bit. I think that
first 10 minutes played a role.
Put one in that first 10 minutes
there, it's a different story."

WRESTLING TONY IPPOLITO MEMORIAL TOURNAMENT



Johnson takes third; Parker sixth


STAFF REPORT

Senior Garrett Johnson
placed third in his weight
class as Venice took 13th
place in the 28th annual
Tony Ippolito Memorial
Wrestling Tournament
Friday and Saturday at
Brandon High.
The Indians finished
with 73 points to best 19
other teams that scored
points. Brandon placed
first with 326.5 points
while Springstead and
North Port were second
and third with 259 and
161 points, respectively.
"We wrestled good the
first day and the second
day we lost too many
matches in which we
should have won," said
Venice coach Dan Kelly. "I
thought (Larsen) Ullrich,
(Tommy) Carello and
(Quinton) O'Brien should
have placed. It was a frus-
trating second day."
After receiving a bye in
the first round, Johnson
(25-4) scored consecutive
pins in the second and
quarterfinal rounds.
In the semifinal,
Johnson dropped a 3-2
decision in an ultimate


tiebreaker to Spring-
stead's Thomas Gupton,
who is ranked No. 2 in his
weight class in Class 2A.
The ultimate tiebreaker
is the final tiebreaker
to determine the win-
ner of a tied match. This
occurs if the match is still
tied after a one-minute
sudden victory overtime
and two 30-second tie-
breakers. In the ultimate
tiebreaker, if the top
wrestler holds down the
bottom wrestler for 30
seconds he is declared
the winner. If the wrestler
on the bottom escapes,
he picks up the victory.
"He wrestled well and
it was a great match for
him," said Kelly about
Johnson.
Johnson, who is ranked
No. 7, came back for a 4-2
win over Brandon's Rob-
bie Enmon in the conso-
lation semifinals.
In the third-place
match, Johnson defeated
Hillsborough's Demetrius
Hill, 7-5.
Venice had some tough
matches in the early
rounds as the Indians
wrestled four opponents
who ended up winning


their weight classes and
three others who took
runner-up.
Senior Matt Parker was
the onlyVenice wrestler
who placed in the top six,
with a sixth-place finish
in the 113-pound weight
class.
Parker (23-7) grabbed
three straight victories,
including two second-
period pins.
In the semifinal, Parker
lost by technical fall to
Brandon's James Flint,
who is ranked No. 2 in
Class 3A and ended up
taking first. Parker then
dropped a 5-1 decision
to Barron Collier's Tanis
Taylor, who is ranked No.
8 in Class 2A, and a 7-5
decision to Robert Torres
of Liberty in the fifth-
place match.
"Parker wrestled really
well and could have won
that fifth-place match
but lost in the end," said
Kelly.


At 145 pounds, senior
Larsen Ullrich came
within a match of plac-
ing in the top six. Ullrich
(28-6) won his first two
matches by pin. In the
quarterfinal, Ullrich lost
to Brandon's Dakota
Greene, 9-1. Greene took
first overall. In the fourth
round of consolations,
Ullrich got another pin.
In the round before plac-
ing, Ullrich lost to Jeremy
Raddar of Chiles, 7-5.
Venice's Bryce Balsinger
and Addison Turkovics
went 2-2 in the tourna-
ment at 120 and 126
pounds, respectively.
Balsinger had two
pins and was eliminated
in the fourth round of
consolations.
Turkovics, who only
had two varsity matches
this season, had a first-
round bye then lost to
the eventual champion
Ross Bruno of Brandon.
Turkovics came back with


consecutive pins then
lost in the consolation
fourth round.
"He wrestled outstand-
ing," said Kelly. "I put him
in at 126 and he was a
nice, pleasant surprise.
Balsinger also wrestled
well."
Winning at least one
match for the Indians
were CJ Trammell (132
pounds), Lincoln Yoder
(138), Carello (220) and
O'Brien (285).
Also competing in
the tournament were
Jacob Stubbs (152), Ryan
Brewer (160) and Ryan
Tully (170).
Venice didn't have
wrestlers in the 106-
and 182-pound weight
classes.
The Indians host
Charlotte tonight in the
final dual match of the
season, then compete in
the Bidwell Tournament
Saturday at Lemon Bay
High in Englewood.

SOCCER
FROM PAGE 10

Venice only managed
three shots and no qual-
ity ones on goal in the
first half.
The Sailors began the
second half with another
goal.
In the 42nd minute,
Matthew Bishop's shot
was saved by Johnson


but Daven Daniels
pounced on the rebound
for a goal.
"They were first to the
ball," said Jones. "A long
weekend. I don't know
what it was. Two down
and then they came out
in the second half and
scored a goal real quick
on us."
Venice controlled much
of the second half and
needed to change its
lineup a bit after defender


Ryan McCormick went
down with a concussion
from banging heads with
a Sarasota player.
Venice outshot Sara-
sota 10-5 in the second
half.
"We went to a 4-3-3 in
the final 20 minutes of
the game to push three
forwards forward and
try to get a score," said
Jones. "We just couldn't
find that quality rhythm."
Venice did have more


chances in the second
half with 10 shots but
many were wide or over
the goal.
In the 45th minute,
Venice's Andrew Chle-
bina crossed the ball to
Max Smetts, who stuck
his foot out and the ball
was just wide right of the
post.
In the 50th minute,
Venice's Matt McGuire
ripped a shot from the
left wing, which was just


wide right of the goal.
With eight minutes
remaining, Chlebina's
header off a cross from
McGuire sailed just wide
right of the goal.
In the final two min-
utes, it looked like Venice
would get on the score-
board as the ball was
rolling toward the goal
with the goalkeeper out
of position, but in the
final seconds a Sarasota
defender kicked the ball


away from the line, pre-
serving the shutout.
"Sarasota won and no
question about it, they
were the better team
tonight," said Jones.
It was the final match
for 13 Venice seniors.
"Ouch," said Jones.
"That's the easiest way to
put it. That will be tough
because a lot of these
guys I had for four years."

Warm Mineral Springs open house draws hundreds


By CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER
More than 300 people
came to an open house
at Warm Mineral Springs
Saturday to learn about its
archaeological, historical
and economic opportuni-
ties, and to offer opinions
about the Springs' future.
The 81-acre Warm Min-
eral Springs property and
day spa was purchased
jointly by the city of North
Port and Sarasota County
in December 2010 for
$5.5 million. Developers
have eyed the Springs for
years because its waters
contain 51 minerals the
third highest count in the
world at 87 degrees,
with 9 million gallons mov-
ing daily through the lake.
Since the purchase, a
team made up of city and
county staff have met


SHAPING THE VISION
Citizens will have two more chances to give North Port and Sarasota
County officials their ideas regarding the future of Warm Mineral
Springs, 12200 San Servando Ave.
The first is Thursday at the Morgan Family Community Center, 6207
W. Price Blvd., North Port; and the second is Feb. 2 at the Gulfcoast
Event and Conference Center on the Searcy G. Koen Regional Girl Scout
Campus, 4780 Cattlemen Road, Sarasota. Both meetings are from 5 p.m.
to 8 p.m.
An online survey like the one distributed at the Saturday open
house at the Springs has been posted to both North Port's and Sarasota
County's websites to encourage feedback from residents. The online
survey can be found at www.cityofnorthport.com and www.scgov.net.
Responses should be submitted no later than 5 p.m. Feb. 17.
Sarasota County also plans to offer an online wiki discussion forum.
The future of the Springs also will be the point of discussion at a joint
meeting of the city and county on March 20 at the Robert L. Anderson
Administration Center in South Venice.


about the Springs' future,
while various depart-
ments have researched its
history, conducted under-
water surveys and, just a
few weeks ago, cleaned
out the cyclorama depict-
ing Ponce de Leon's arrival


in the area.
The open house is the
first of three opportunities
city and county residents
have to send their priori-
ties to officials. Other pub-
lic meetings are scheduled
for Thursday and Feb. 2.


Critical from staffs' point
of view is the summary
that has been distributed
and can be downloaded
from the city or county
website. On it, citizens
are asked what interests
them under four catego-
ries offered. For example,
under "Preservation/
Conservation" are items
such as cyclorama restora-
tion, manatee habitat and
water integrity. The other
categories are "Services/
Operations" (spa services,
medical treatments), "Area
Economic Development"
(hotels, ecotourism) and
"Recreation/Education"
Greenwayy connections,
entertainment/con-
certs). A space is there for
comments.
Perhaps two of the
best visionaries are Alice
Evans and Liz Lyons of
Englewood. The two have


moved to the area from
Saratoga Springs, N.Y.,
whose famed mineral
springs have attracted
visitors since the 1700s,
and the Mohawk and
Iroquois before then.
"We see incredible
potential in this facility for
health-related tourism,
plus economic develop-
ment and increasing the
ratables (property tax
income)," said Evans,
whose background is in
real estate and whose hus-
band, Charles, retired as
the operations manager
of the Saratoga Springs
City Center. She said the
Springs could drive the
area as an upscale resort
and "a feature for locals to
enjoy."
Lyons, an avid yoga
practitioner, said Satur-
day's visit is her first.
"I will definitely come


here again," she said. "I
think this is just a great
asset."
Betsy Simmons of Port
Charlotte, another first-
timer, said the history of
the Springs is interest-
ing. However she said
she hopes for a reduced
entrance rate.
For Steve Lewis, a native
of Ocala, Fla., who is rent-
ing in the Springs area,
visiting the site also is a trip
into the past, when he and
a cousin would sneak into
an Ocala sinkhole to swim.
Lewis said he thinks
the open house is "won-
derful" and said city and
county officials pur-
chased the site "at a good
economic time." He said
the purchase would allow
for a great preservation
of natural resources and
more community focus.

This woman's work is never done


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Kathleen E Cellura is a
woman with many missions.
Through her Kathleen E Cel-
lura Foundation at the Com-
munity Foundation of Sarasota
County, Cellura annually gives
to nonprofit organizations
such as Venice Art Center,
Venice Theatre, Venice Sym-
phony, the Boys & Girls Club
and others.
Hoping to add to her
foundation, Cellura recently
completed a novel, "Forever
Footprints," which she said
is a combination of fiction
and nonfiction. She funded
the printing costs so that
100 percent of the money
derived from book sales will go
directly to her foundation and
from there to South County
organizations.
Cellura's book will be
introduced and available for
purchase for the first time at
Venice Art Center from 5 to
7 p.m. Thursday. The event is
sponsored by Fletcher Music
Centers, Jacaranda Trace, Ven-
ice Art Center, Kearney Movers
and Storage of Nokomis and
the Community Foundation of
Sarasota County.
"The Community Founda-
tion of Sarasota County is
proud to count among its
donors someone like Kathi
Cellura of the Kathleen E Cel-
lura Foundation," said Roxie
Jerde, president and CEO of
the Community Foundation of
Sarasota County. "Kathi is an
inspiration with her commit-
ment to philanthropy and sup-
port of nonprofit organizations
in southern Sarasota County. It
is an amazing demonstration
of generosity to donate the
proceeds of her book, 'Forever
Footprints,' to her foundation.
We are so honored to partner
with her on the launch of her
book."
"Forever Footprints" is about
Klee Cato, who was a dedi-
cated sixth-grade teacher at
Fairhaven Central in the Finger
Lakes area of New York in the
1970s. Some years later, while
relaxing at her Florida home
and thinking about those spe-
cial years, the phone rings. The
caller is a voice from the past.
Memories come as fast as
water in a flood-swollen river
and include thoughts of a spe-
cial Labrador retriever named
Allie. Not just any dog, Allie
would become the catalyst
that would unite a community.
Allie also would lead Klee into
a special relationship with
Dean Cappelli, the vice princi-
pal of her school.
The relationship road would
prove to be a rocky one, lit-
tered with road blocks and
detours, but the close friend-
ship of Klee's mentor and
former eighth-grade teacher,
Sister Mary Ann, would help
her weather the relationship
storms even as she learned
life's lessons in a way she never
did in school.
"Allie becomes the vehicle
for Klee's voice in order for her

to impart many life lessons to
her students," Cellura said in
a synopsis of the book. "The
understanding and the love
throughout builds a sense of
purpose and goodness. Klee's
loyal teacher-friend Lisa and
practical cousin Sal travel in
spirit with her and offer good
advice throughout ...
"What would one do to save
the life of an animal, a child,
a lover, herself? Klee deals
with these poignant questions
as she steps into an unan-
ticipated journey that school
year."
Cellura's philanthropy is
important to her, but so is her
belief in the empowerment
of women and their ability to
succeed even when success
seems most unlikely.
"It comes out in my book,"
she said. "We can do it."
Like the book's heroine,
Cellura taught in New York. A


Kathleen F. Cellura at the organ she plays at home, which also serves as a recurring theme in her book,"Forever


Footprints:'

graduate of the University of
Buffalo, she taught in Roch-
ester, where she completed
graduate work at the Univer-
sity of Rochester. She taught
every grade from kindergarten
through eighth grade, develop-
ing many of her own methods
and theories in order to reach
her students.
Because of her love of educa-
tion, membership in the Ameri-
can Association of University
Women was a natural for her.
Teaching in the inner city in


1964 proved to be a life-alter-
ing experience, she wrote in
the "About the author" section
of her book.
In 1976 she moved to
Florida, where she continued
to teach but also entered the
field of real estate, becoming a
broker. She also taught courses
in real estate ethics and
organized a variety of training
workshops for Realtors.
In both New York and Flor-
ida, she was concerned with
animal welfare and shared that
interest with her students in
the classroom and with friends


in both places. That love led
to her involvement with the
Wildlife Center of Venice.
All these interests and more
inspired her to create her
foundation and to select the
causes it benefits now and will
benefit for many years after
her death.
"I worked a lot of years," she
said.
Along the way she feels she
learned a lot of lessons, and
she shares them with readers
in her book.

Not your everyday'Yentl'


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

If you enjoyed the
Barbra Streisand film
"Yentl," you likely will
enjoy Asolo Repertory's
version, also based on
the Isaac Bashevis Singer
story, "Yentl, The Yeshiva
Boy."
Yentl (Hillary Cle-
mens) is a scholarly
young woman living
in an Orthodox Jew-
ish family in Eastern
Europe in the 19th
century. Her problem
is that there is no room
for a scholarly woman
in that place in those
days. She is supposed
to do what all young
orthodox Jewish girls


would do grow up,
get married and have
children who ideally
would be boys who
would become rabbis.
Because her father,
Reb Todrus (Howard
Millman), has no son,
he relents to the point of
allowing her to read the
Talmud, which per-
tains to Jewish law and
customs. Frustrated, she
dresses as a young man
in order to continue her
studies.
"To dress as a man
is a sin," Todrus said.
"When the body is
dressed in strange
garments, the soul is
perplexed."
Her father arranges
with Rivka (Carolyn


Michel), the marriage
broker, to find a suitable
husband.
"Their is no such thing
as a Jewish nunnery,"
Todrus said.
As the unsuitable
suitors appear, Yentl
becomes more frus-
trated. Lemmel (Jake
Staley), whom Yentl
describes as a "schle-
miel" a loser and
the others fail to win
her approval, yet she
remains at home until
her father dies. After
saying Kaddish, a
prayer given by those
in mourning, she leaves
home, disguised as a
young man.
Yentl changes her
name to Anshel and,


as a student, becomes
close to a student
named Avigdor (Andrew
Carter), which leads
to another perplex-
ing problem. Despite
her love for Avigdor,
she cannot divulge her
secret.
"They made a mistake
up in heaven," she said.
When she learns that
Avigdor is in love with
Hadas (Gisela Chipe)
but cannot marry her,
Yentl tries to learn the
reason in order to help
him.
Finally, Yentl goes so
far as to marry Hadas
herself as Hadas has
fallen in love with
Anshel.

five characters. In addi-
tion to the entire third-
year class of the Asolo
Conservatory for Actor
Training and those men-
tioned above, the cast
includes longtime com-
pany members Doug
Jones (Reb Nata, Feitl,
Solomon the Healer and
ensemble) and Jason
Bradley (Mordecai,
Laibish, Zlateh, Sheftel
and ensemble). Carter is
making his Asolo debut
in this show.
While the story
remains similar to that
in the film, the music,
by pop/rock singer
Jill Sobule, is entirely
new, as are the staging
and direction by Gor-
don Greenberg, who
directed "Barnum" a
few seasons back for
Asolo Rep. Third-year
students assembled a
Klezmer band in order
to deliver the musical
elements, which in the
case of one song, have
some adult language
that lends shock value
to the progression of
the story.
In addition to the
adult themes, there is
brief nudity that was
not part of the film.
For longtime Asolo
fans, the appearance of
Millman on stage as an
actor after having been
the company's artistic
director for so many
years was a pleasant
addition to the cast.
"Yentl" will run in
rotating repertory in the
Mertz Theatre through
April 26. For perfor-
mance dates and tick-
ets, call 941-351-8000 or

versity Center for the

Q 1 Both vulnerable, as South you

The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
10 Pass 24

What do you rebid now?


EAST
Pass


A There's no hurry about raising to
three spades with weak three-card
support or rebidding such a shoddy
five-card suit. Tell partner you have a
balanced minimum by rebidding two
no trump.

Q 2 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

S82 2 9 0 KJ10 8 6 5 2 AJ7


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
1 Pass 20
2K) Pass ?
What action do you take?


WEST
Pass


A Your original intention was to
rebid your own suit. Nothing has
happened to make you want to
change your mind. Bid three
diamonds.

Q 3 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

S8 K Q 10 6 3 0 QJ 10 4 QJ7

The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
14 Pass 2) Pass
34 Pass ?
What do you bid now?

A You have a minimum for your
action, and partner has shown a good
two-suiter. It sounds like a misfit so
we would continue by rebidding
three no trump. If partner bids again,
we might consider an aggressive
action.

Q 4 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:

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


WEST
Pass


A A jump to three hearts over
partner's one-no-trump rebid would
be invitational, not forcing. You want
to be in game but are not good
enough to jump shift. So bid four
hearts.

Q 5 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

4Q873 K9820 83 Q76


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
14 Pass 24
2NT Pass ?
What action do you take?


WEST

A You have a minimum response,
but reasonable four-card support for
partner's major. Tell him that by
rebidding three spades. That's all you
can do.

Q 6 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
14 Pass 14

A Finding out how many aces
partner holds might not be enough -
you could easily have two fast heart
losers. The way to probe is to cue-bid
your ace. Start things off by bidding
five diamonds.

"It is filled with life's lessons,"
she said.
It also has an index, something
not usually found in a novel. Cel-
lura included that for the ben-
efit of readers who may want to
reread certain passages.
Writing the book was in the back
of her mind for many years. When
she decided to follow through
with the project, she devoted two
and a half years to the writing and
worked with a retired editor from
Harcourt Brace and Co. to orga-
nize the story and her thoughts.
"I based the story back in New
York but there is a lot of Florida
in the book too," she said. "There
also are many theories on educa-
tion in it too."
Cellura said there also are many
examples of the role teachers play
in the lives of students. Getting
Klee's students involved in rescu-
ing the Labrador is an example.
The children build a shelter for
the dog. When the vice principal
becomes involved, a love story is
introduced, adding another twist
to the tale.
There is even a lesson dealing


with integrity. A secret kept by
Klee threatens to undermine her
relationship with Dean. Should
she tell him or not? What will
result if she does?
Cellura said that scenario and
another in which her heroine
pours her heart out to the dog are
tender scenes.
The book's cover and very title
hint at the people within the book
as well as the stories within sto-
ries. Close inspection of the cover,
designed by the publisher, shows
a variety of footprints from those
belonging to the dog to those of
all the people brought together
because of that dog.
Cellura retired from teaching
in 1994 and from the business
world 11 years later. Since then
she has devoted herself to helping
nonprofit organizations in South
County. In addition to giving them
grants from her foundation, she
regularly attends their programs,
from opening night at Venice The-
atre or an art show at the Venice
Art Center to the Loveland Follies,
dedication of a new Habitat house
or a program about animals. She
is the one wearing the hat, some-
thing that has become her trade-
mark in the community.
"People are happiest when they
are needed ... when they feel

involved in something larger than
their immediate world," she said.
The more books she can sell,
the more she can contribute to
her foundation, she said.
"All proceeds go to the Kathleen
E Cellura Foundation at the Com-
munity Foundation of Sarasota
County, which are dispersed via
grants to South Sarasota County
nonprofits," she said.

Venice is on air

and on the web

Y entl," the third production of the current Asolo Repertory
season opened last Saturday with former Rep producer
Howard Millman portraying Reb Alter Vishkower and his
wife, Carolyn Michel portraying Frumka Vishkower and Zlateh
in the sizable cast which features several students from the
Asolo Conservatory of Actor Training. It will play in repertory
through April 26.
Proving the variety of theatrical offerings in the area,
Venice Theatre's mainstage production of "Smokey Joe's Cafe"
continues through Sunday.
Coming soon to Venice are "Altar Boyz" in the Pinkerton
cabaret area Feb. 3-March 4 and the "Legends of Doo-Wop"
Feb. 3 and 4.
Venice will be on the television screen in the coming days.
Gulf Coast Journal, hosted by Jack Perkins, will air a segment
at 8 p.m. Jan. 26 about the old Kentucky Military Institute which
once wintered in Venice. At 9:30 p.m. Venice resident Pieter
Kohnstam will be featured on a new locally produced series,
"Diamonds Along the Highway." Kohnstam's segment, "A Chance
To Live," takes its name from his book of the same name. In his
book, Kohnstam writes about the family's escape from Nazi Ger-
many, his childhood friendship with Ann Frank, and his eventual
arrival in the U.S. Both programs will be aired on WEDU, the
Tampa-based PBS channel.
Venice's former Army Air Field, now the Venice Municipal
Airport, is spot-lighted in a posting by the Museum of Chinese
America in NewYork City. Google "MOCA Flying Tigers on

Indian festival returns to Sarasota


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Learn about the Native American legacy in
Sarasota County Friday-Sunday
The fifth annual Sarasota Indian Festival
will fill Sarasota Fairgrounds with arts, crafts,
tradition, culture, music, dancing and Native
American food.
Paleo Indian artifacts more than 10,000 years
old have been found in the area. A friend in
Venice discovered a spearpoint along the beach
early one morning. It was identical to one in
the collection of the South Florida Museum at
Bradenton.That one is identified as having been
used by an ice-age hunter in this general area.
Both areas were covered with water as the ice
age ended and the sea rose to be much as it is
today.
Other reminders of various native American
tribes are mounds (middens) once found along
the coast, until leveled by developers in the past
century Some remain at such places as Indian
Mound Park in Englewood and at Historic Span-
ish Point south of Sarasota in Osprey A cut-away
section of a midden at Spanish Point gives a clue
to the indigenous people of the area, their crafts,
homelife and even to the food they ate. Most
middens were trash heaps, not unlike today's
landfills. A few middens were used as burial or
ceremonial mounds. These were most sacred to
the Native Americans.
Trash mounds are filled primarily with shells
but also with broken tools or other objects used
in the home. Within the burial mounds, in addition
to the skeletal remains which usually were placed
in "flexed" or sitting positions, scientists have
found examples of special treasures such as
bone or shell jewelry, special pottery and special
implements or tools that might have been used
by the deceased.
With the arrival of white men and diseases
never encountered by the Native Americans in
the 1500s when Spanish Conquistadores roamed
the shores, the Tocobagas and Calusas began
to vanish from the area. They left no written
history This information is from "Venice, Journey
from Horse and Chaise," written by Janet Snyder
Matthews.
Seminoles and other migratory tribes came in
later years, she wrote.
The festival honors all these various people
and tribes. Demonstrations will include native
crafts, cooking, drumming and dancing.
Festival goers can not only see things being
made but purchase examples of Native Ameri-
can crafts to take home, including one-of-a-kind
jewelry, sculpture, leather work and bead work.
Entertainment will include traditional American
drumming, singing and dancing by Rick Bird and
the Bird Choppers from Cherokee, N.C. flutist

Johan Kobborg returns


for 'Made in America'


PROVIDED BY THE SARASOTA BALLET
Celebrating the rich variety of dance created
in America and inspired by the unique
American spirit, The Sarasota Ballet
presents a program featuring George Balanchine's
"Donizetti Variations,' "Salute" by Johan Kobborg,
and Will Tucketfs "Spielende Kinder" Friday-Sunday
at the FSU Center for the Performing Arts.
The abstract ballet, "Donizetti Variations,' car-
ries many of Balanchine's most distinctive stylistic
touches, and typifies his highly musical approach.
Choreographed for a principal couple and a corps
de ballet of six women and three men to the mu-
sic of the lively music of the renowned bel canto


opera composer Gaetano Donizetti, "Donizetti
Variations" has proved popular with many interna-
tional companies, as well as Sarasota audiences.
The Sarasota Ballet enjoys a close relationship
with one of the most highly acclaimed dancers of
the ballet world today, Johan Kobborg. While still
a principal dancer with The Royal Ballet, Kobborg
has increasingly expressed himself through
choreography. In their own first performance of
Kobborg's original choreography, The Sarasota
Ballet will add "Salute" to their repertoire.
And British choreographer Will Tuckett brings
back a revised version of his "Spielende Kinder."
Performances are at 8 p.m. Friday; 2 p.m. and
8 p.m. Saturday; and at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. and


The Westcoast Black


Theatre Troupe presents


'A Raisin in the Sun'


PROVIDED BY THE WESTCOAST BLACK
THEATRE TROUPE
The Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe pres-
ents "A Raisin in The Sun."
The play features two actors who have
captivated Sarasota audiences before. Alice
Gatling, star of "Ruined" and cast member of the
Troupe's "Jar the Floor," will play LenaYounger,
mother to Walter Lee Younger, played by Asolo
Conservatory graduate Will Little.
The play will be directed by Jim Weaver, a
fourth WBTT production for this New York City
resident.
"I am thrilled to be back at WBTT directing
one of my all time favorite plays which also
happens to be the first non-musical to be
done in the new theater space," remarked
Weaver. "'A Raisin in the Sun' was an impor-
tant piece when it was first done and it is still
relevant today in a somewhat different way.
At that time it was about the African-Ameri-
can experience. Today it has expanded beyond
to other ethnic groups dealing with financial hard-
ship and prejudice.
We've put together an amazing cast of strong
actors and we're all very excited to share this
story with the audience."
In addition to Gatling and Little, the cast of
troupe members and other local actors
include David Abolafia, Emmanuel Avraham,
Dhakeria Cunningham, Bryson Gregory,
Jaszy McAllister, Joshua Nwankwo and
James Pierre.
"WBTT is pleased to present this
remarkable drama, a play that changed
theater in America," remarked Nate Jacobs,
founder and artistic director of WBTT. "It
broke barriers on two fronts. 'A Raisin in the


IMIVAUHE IUVIUDU

Sun' was the first Broadway play written and
directed by African Americans. Secondly, it
was also written by a woman. In presenting this
classic American drama, we're thrilled to have
Alice and Will portraying the leads in such
an important piece. Audiences can expect a
gripping and heartfelt performance on the
WBTT stage"'
"A Raisin in the Sun" opens Friday and runs

Dwight Icenhower returns as Elvis


BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER
Nearly 500 people sat in a darkened Ro-
barts Sports Arena in Sarasota awaiting
the arrival of the King of rock'n' roll at
the "Legends Concert, performed by 29-year-old
Elvis tribute artist Dwight Icenhower.
Wearing a white suit coat and black pants,
hair swept into a high pompadour, he took the
microphone in hand and belted out "I'm all shook
up'" He didn't stop there.
The first half of the show was a high-energy
performance reminiscent of the handsome,
talented, charismatic and sometimes humorous
legend who would have been 77 Jan. 8. He was
so like Elvis when he sang the star's songs of the
late '50s, '60s and '70s that with eyes closed it
was as if the King himself were there.
He had all the right Elvis moves, from the head
bob, to the shaking legs and dancing feet, to the
shaking hand and arm thrust at the end of a song.
He made himself at home with the audience, saying
things like, "Elvis' music lives on because of fans like
myself and you" He sang a few other artists' music,
such as Del Shannon's "Runaround"'
"Elvis liked Del Shannon," Icenhower said.


During the second act he wore a look-alike
Elvis white jumpsuit, which came from the same
merchant Elvis bought from, B & K Enterprises.
"Elvis had 75 to 80 designs, some with an eagle
or phoenix on the back,' Icenhower said."Mine was
the white rain drop suit from the mid-1970s. Its a
polyester-wool blend and hot to wear"
In the last half he handed out several scarves
to ladies lined up in front of the stage, as did the
"King,' sometimes adding a kiss on the cheek.
The music took a more soulful turn in the
second half and included Elvis' honor to
war veterans in An American Trilogy, which
included "Dixie," "All My Trials" and "The Battle
Hymn of the Republic."
Icenhower started playing around as Elvis in
his sophomore year in high school. He played
trumpet in the school's marching band and some
keyboards, but enjoyed singing most.
"From the time I can remember, 4 or 5 years
old, I heard a lot of Elvis music at home, and on
the anniversary of his death in 1977 we watched
his movies. I was hooked," he said.
He sang like Elvis, but never in front of family
or anyone. His band director knew he liked Elvis.
"When the winter band season was over, the

Miniature chairs and music highlight art show


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Fame of the Chair Lady, Amy Miller, is
spreading.
Last year her work was featured in a
special show at the Smithsonian Institution.
Friday, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., area residents
and visitors will be able to meet the artist and
see her unique hand-crafted miniature chairs up
close at Bula in The Galleria at 1500 E. Venice
Ave., between U.S. 41 Bypass and Jacaranda
Boulevard in Venice.


Miniature chairs have become her passion.
She collects them and she makes them.
Each one is themed to tell a story or to match
a special person's personality. She has designed
spooky chairs for Halloween and dainty little
chairs for little girls who aspire to be ballet
dancers.
Billed as "an evening of art and music," the
free event will feature music by area singer and
songwriter Carey Chaney and refreshments from
Le Petit Jardin Cafe which recently moved east
on Venice Avenue from its original location on the

Englewood Bank & Trust Invitational Art Festival is this weekend


PROVIDED BY THE ENGLEWOOD
BANK & TRUST
The 25th Annual Englewood Bank & Trust
Invitational Art Festival is planned from
10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at
Englewood Bank & Trust, 1111 S. McCall Road.
Fifty-five fine artists and fine craftsmen will
be exhibiting in every media and original art will
again be the emphasis.
"I have been an artist my entire life," said Carol
Swayze, "and as a master printmaker I have
had to become an educator as well. In the
world of fast food and throw away everything,
the art world has also taken a hit. With the
invention of the copy machine, offset litho-
graphs, and now giclees, everyone is strug-
gling with the concept of 'original' on a daily
basis. Even the word 'print' has been changed
to mean 'copy' which is not the meaning of the
word at all. So much has changed that I have to
work much harder to teach communities about
the intrinsic value of 'original' art. I want people to
know that original art is accessible. Original art


is available to everyone in every price range. It
is not out of anyone's reach. Whether it's buying
it to collect, or making art yourself, it has value
because it makes you feel good.You can own a
piece of original art for the price of dinner and a
movie.
"I am very serious about my job as show direc-
tor of the Englewood Bank & Trust Invitational,"
said Swayze. "I want to showcase local artists as
well as bring in fine artists from around the globe
to share their talents with our community Our
tradition of cultural exchange continues with the
inclusion of four international artists along with
the 27 local artists that we showcase. Soapstone
carver Sandy Cline is coming from Canada as
well as one of his students, a carver named Lora
Childs from Barrie, Ontario. Jorge Fernandini, a
painter who hails from Peru will be exhibiting his
large wildlife acrylics and I am most excited to
announce the addition of a young artist who is
currently living in Russia."
Emily Mihalik is an American painter with an
international background. Born in 1987, Mihalik


grew up between Santa Barbara and London,
and her work is a testament to her appreciation
of culture and place. Her current body of work
is closely inspired by both her experiences as
a Fulbright Research Fellow in Kazakhstan
and by her deafness. For Mihalik, abstraction
overcomes the barriers of language and sound.
In her own words, the artist defines her work
as "a dialogue between opposites. By forcing
unlikely elements to converse together on the
canvas, they become harmonious." Deafness
allows Mihalik to appreciate the phenomenologi-
cal potential of painting. To her, paint thickness is
an invitation for the viewer to physically enter the
painting. Her large-scale multidimensional paint-
ings are a stimulating sight. The process of view-
ing these works is akin to listening to music. It
does not come as a surprise that viewers express
a desire to touch the paintings and describe them
as being "alive."
Local concession stands will offer food and
refreshments. Parking is free at Englewood Bank.
For more information, call 941-266-6434.

PROVIDED BY THE ROTARY CLUB
OF ENGLEWOOD
The Rotary Club of Englewood presents
Mike Albert and the Big "E" Band in a
tribute to Elvis show Monday at the Lemon
Bay High School auditorium on Monday.
Alberts "Ultimate Tribute" show has become
known worldwide for its respectful portrayal of Elvis.
His seven piece Big "E" Band re-creates the authen-


tic sound of Elvis' band during his Las Vegas tours.
Albert's appearance on the Oprah Winfrey show has
increased his fame and reputation as being one of
the best Elvis impersonators of all time.
Albert was also featured in six music videos,
and performed on the national show "A Current
Affair" with Maury Povich. Albert has even toured
across U.S. and Europe with the legendary
Jordanaires and J.D. Sumner and the Stamps


quartet, which were Elvis' original vocal groups.
Albert's style and charisma and his ability
to get the audience involved in the show have
proved to be quite the crowd pleaser. Albert
makes it a point to keep the show fresh with an
ever-changing song line-up. This show will leave
you "All Shook Up."
Tickets are $20 at all Englewood Bank &Trust
locations. Doors open at 6 p.m. with a preshow

Kenny Rogers returns
with timeless hits
and new tunes
PROVIDED BY THE VAN WEZEL
PERFORMING ARTS HALL
enny Rogers returns to the Van Wezel
Performing Arts Hall at 8 p.m. Thursday
with timeless hits and new tunes.
Rogers has sold more than 120 million records
worldwide and recorded more than 65 albums
during his storied 52 years in show business.
With his unique storytelling ability and soulful
voice, Rogers has continued his amazing run
into the 21st century with a critically acclaimed
album, "Water and Bridges" and hit single, "I Can't
UnloveYou" and the singer's first gospel album,
"The Love of God"'

with a rockabilly group called The Scholars to
now, Rogers has never stopped making music.
Rogers played stand-up bass in the jazz group

ber of the popular folk group, The New Christy
Minstrels. Rogers found the spotlight when his
group, The First Edition, scored their first hit,
"I Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My
Condition Was In)'" Rogers' solo career shot into
the stratosphere with the number one hit, "Lucille,"
which was named the CMA's Single of the Year
and was certified Gold. "Daytime Friends,' "Sweet
Music Man" and "Love Or Something Like Ift
continued his run of success.
Then came "The Gambler,' a story song so
vivid it not only delighted country and pop fans,
it also became a TV movie, starring Rogers
himself in the title role. The movie spawned
four follow-ups, making it the longest running
miniseries franchise on television. Rogers long
list of timeless classics includes an impressive
24 number one hits including "Lady," "Islands in

'Crimes of the Heart'

PROVIDED BY THE CHARLOTTE HIGH SCHOOL hilarious, the author, Henley, has a remarkable
THEATRE DEPARTMENT talent for serving pain as if it were a piece of cake.


They're funny, they're Southern, they're
dysfunctional-and they're appearing on
the Charlotte Performing Arts Center stage
in Charlotte High School Theatre Department's
production of Beth Henley's Pulitzer Prize winning
comedy, "Crimes of the Heart" opening on Thurs-
day and running through Sunday.
Life isn't easy for the MaGrath sisters of Hazle-
hurst, Miss. Lenny's horse is dead, Meg's singing
career is dead and Babe's husband is near-dead
(because she shot him). But nothing not med-
dling cousins, nor past and present lovers, nor
a touch of craziness-can keep these women
down. The trio's reunion triggers a hilarious mix
of conflicts, crises and revelations.This story of a
family's troubles is true to life in that comedy and
tragedy live side by side. In the end, these three
women learn to greet the tragic, absurd twists of
fate with courage, love and the ultimate saving
grace of laughter. Employing characters and dia-
logue that are true and touching and consistently


Anyone who has a sister should recognize the
special closeness of the MaGraths, who talk, cry,
argue and love with an honesty and freedom they
receive from (and give to) no one else. For them,
sisterhood requires sharing.
The tensions between these sisters may drive
them apart, but their mutual support and love
always reunite them. When calamity threatens
- and this family is in constant danger they
are there for each other. Such sisterly love allows
them to begin healing the wounds of the past and
to start planning for a better future.
This heart-warming play is being presented in
the intimate venue of Black Box Theatre at the
Charlotte Performing Arts Center, Carmalita St.,
Punta Gorda. Show times are at 7 p.m. Thursday
through Saturday and at 3 p.m. Sunday.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students.
Tickets and information are available at

Tobacco Locker

BY JON BAUMANN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Lynn and Bill Orosz have long had a passion
for everything cigar related, so much so that
over 5 years ago they melded business with
pleasure and opened the Tobacco Locker, with
over a million cigars in stock.
The Cigar Bar, located within the Tobacco
Locker, is a place to sit back and relax with your
favorite cigar and your choice of craft brewed
beer or various wine selections. The big screen
TV usually features some sporting event but
has also found the History Channel and Fox
News on at different times, whatever the cus-
tomers want to watch.
"If I get my way, I slip in a cooking channel or
a home and garden show now and then,' said
Lynn. It's all about the customer and maximizing
their cigar smoking enjoyment. 'We have plenty
of people that will only drink diet Dr. Pepper when
they're smoking, because the malty flavors of the

drink enhance the cigar smoke." Lynn replied.
"It's all about the taste"
Education is a big part of the Tobacco Locker
experience for those who aren't quite sure cigar
smoking is for them. "Lots of people that have
never smoked, period, let alone cigars, come in,
people that accompany a cigar smoker." Lynn ex-
plained. "Wives, spouses, girlfriends that come in
with the guys who do smoke. I've had wives that
have never smoked a product in their whole lives but
really want to try it. Thats when Bill and I will try to
introduce them to what their husbands are enjoying,
so that they can get a better understanding"'
Cigars are not like cigarettes. "The difference
is you're inhaling the cigarette. You're not inhaling
with a cigar." Lynn expalined. "You suck the cigar
like you would on a straw. You fill your mouth with
the smoke, then you blow it out. You never swal-
low it. It's really hard for the people that smoke
cigarettes to smoke cigars because they're so
used to inhaling."


Individual cigar sticks cost anywhere between
$2 and $30, depending in part on how labor
intensive the hand rolling process is. The Tobacco
Locker offers pairings of cigars and crafted beers
or wine at reduced cost and all products can be
consumed at the Cigar Bar or purchased to go.
Bill and Lynn are strongly into the educa-
tion of those who want to be educated about
cigars. They offer cigar samplers to try different
flavors. They also offer trips to Latin American
countries specifically to tour the manufacturing
warehouses that many of the cigars they sell in
the store are made. Once a month manufacturing
representatives will come in for a meet and greet
with customers, describing different product lines
while the Tobacco Locker offers various discounts
on the cigars described. There is no cost to
customers to attend.
The next date will be from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

The Sand Trap


Sports Bar & Grill


-P -r ~ ~~~


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
At first glance, the Sand Trap is exactly what
it appears to be-an American sports-
themed restaurant. There are flat screen
TVs on the wall and a large, communal bar in the
middle of the room. But look a little closer and
another side is revealed-it is also a classic Thai
restaurant.
When Suchitra Flynn opened the small estab-
lishment in the Venice Village Shoppes two years
ago, she was technically "retired". "All my life has
been in food, in Thailand and in D.C.,"she said.
"My husband and I were with the State Depart-
ment and then we retired here."
She says that initially, the dichotomy of her
restaurant's theme was met with skepticism. "Ev-
eryone was mad at me when I first opened," Flynn
said. "They said you couldn't have both types of
foods." For the past two years, she has proven the
naysayers wrong, serving two separate menus
and able to please the palate of pretty much
anyone who walks in the door.
From the Bar and Grill menu, you can order
not only a variety of American specialties, like
sandwiches, burgers, soups, salads and wraps,
but also tasty beef, chicken and fish entrees. The
Thai Corner menu delivers traditional Thai favor-


ites like lemongrass soup, curries, noodles and
fried rice, and entrees such as Pad Pik Khing and
ginger delight. Flynn says that the crispy duck is
one of her most requested menu items.
A chef herself, Flynn knew the importance of
an excellent chef to the success of a new restau-
rant-so she hired four. "I hired two of each," she
said. Two to cook American food and two to cook
Thai food. We trained the Thai chefs to cook both
American and Thai "That assures that if the chefs
cooking the American food get too busy, one of
the Thai chefs can pitch in to help.
Flynn is a petite woman, so her statements
about healthy and lean cooking come as no
surprise. "I like to cook fit and trim food," she
said. "I sell a lot of fish, and all of the Thai food
is excellent." Because it uses a lot of vegetables
and spices to flavor them, traditional Thai food is
inherently low in calories and fat.
She says that owning a business in Venice has
been a unique and valuable experience. "I really
enjoy it," said Flynn. "Everybody brings in their
friends and they really seem to like it. The com-
munity is very supportive."
The Sand Trap Sports Bar & Grill is located at
4145 S.Tamiami Trail, Venice.

A Bette Iace Dance an.d Fitness tudio


BY JON BAUMANN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
North Port's A Better Place Dance and
Fitness Studio, located at 2530 Bobcat
Village Center Road, has so much to offer
to so many in the community.Young and old, boys
and girls, beginners to experts, men and women,
all can find something musical, artistic, and
athletic at owner Sonya Teixeira's place.
"With the staff I have, we're completely ca-
pable, if you have a child that has the talent and
the heart to go into a professional dance career,
we can put them there"' Teixeira said. "Is that my
focus? Not at all, but we can'"
Staff credentials include a former faculty
member of the Broadway Dance Center in
NewYork City, a current performer with the
Sarasota Ballet, and approximately 100 years
of collective experience in performance dance,
competitive karate and teaching.
"I have some fabulous teachers on staff,
highly qualified, but that's not where we focus
our attention,' Teixeira explained. "I want a place
where anybody feels comfortable to come here.
It's not about the competition team and the tro-
phies on the wall and look what we can do.
For me, it's more about who we are."
Now in its' fifth year, A Better Place has always
featured a program throughout its' dance and
fitness classes called Character Counts. This
program is a character education program that is


built on trustworthiness, respect, responsibility,
fairness, caring and citizenship.
It is the goal of the organization to teach
these principles in every class, thus helping
each student make the community a better
place. Lofty goals accomplished in a learning
environment that allows for fun and
social interaction in a disciplined
environment.
Classes are available for 2 year olds on up
to adults and feature jazz, tap, ballet, lyrical,
modern contemporary, musical theater, hip hop,
breakdancing and karate.
"I wanted an instructor who was true to
the art of traditional karate," Teixeira explains.
"Armando is very disciplined, very structured.
We're the only studio that does karate."
While much of the focus is on the young
youngsters through the teens, the Studio
does offer adult classes again this year.
"I'm hoping to build that part. I think it's a
good outlet for adults." Teixeira replies, "We
offered classes when we first opened and they
went well then the economy took a dip and
people stopped doing for themselves."
Students display all different levels of talent.
"There's a place for everybody, even if you have
two left feet,"Teixeira laughed. "A good teacher
can choreograph a dance for anybody I depend
on my teachers to know a child's strong suits
and a child's weaknesses'"


"I didn't open the studio in hopes of being
able to retire. I opened the studio because
my daughter needed a good place to
call home,' explained Teixeira. "I want it
to be a community place. I want people
to want their kids to be here because it's
a good place for them to be'"
A Better Place has an award-winning competi-
tion team that travels around the state and a

Chef Kenneth Young

Johnny Leverock's Seafood House


BY BARARA BEAN-MELLINGER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
K enneth Young, chef at Johnny Leverock's
Seafood House in Englewood, has been
involved with food as long as he can
remember. He's worked as a chef from the
East Coast of the U.S. to the West, and now the
South, too.
"I started working at the country club near my
house as a kid, and worked my way up through
the years," said Young, who grew up in Rhode
Island. Later, he worked as a chef at restaurants
in both Narragansett and Newport.
When he went to Colorado to ski, he
discovered that he liked the area and its many
restaurants. He worked there for 15 years
as a chef in hotels and restaurants in Vail and
Beavercreek.
Back in Rhode Island, Young opened his own
restaurant, Amalfi Restaurant and Catering, and
served as its chef for eight years. In addition to
preparing the restaurant's menu, he often catered
several weddings per week. The restaurant
earned the honor of being selected Caterer of
the Year.
Young made his way to Southwest Florida in
January of 2011, initially to Boca Grande. He has
been the chef at Leverock's since August.


"We're known for our seafood, but along with
seafood we also have sandwiches, soups, salads,
steaks and chops and lighter fare," said Young.
"Lunch is very big here and also our Sunset
Specialties."
Leverock's Sunset Specialties range from
salmon to chicken or shrimp, each for under $10.
The Sunset Specialties menu is served from
2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through
Saturday and 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
on Sunday.
Lunch is served from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Monday through Saturday, with unusual of-
ferings such as black and bleu salad with a
choice of fish, mahi reuben, salmon BLT wrap
and New Orleans Po' Boys. The dinner menu
features a wide variety of fish specialties -
grouper almondine, onion crusted salmon, shrimp
arrosto and lobster and shrimp mac and cheese.
Young is impressed with the beauty of
Southwest Florida, including the Leverock's
property.
"You don't realize how beautiful it is back here
until you come to the restaurant and see this
view," said Young, looking out over the marina and
the pool, which was recently remodeled.
Diners on Leverock's back deck can look out
over the waters surrounding the marina, the pool

that borders the water, and over to the serenity of
Palm Island.
"I spent 15 years in the Rockies, where the
winters can last for six months," said Young.


"That's why I love the warm weather in Florida."
Johnny Leverock's Seafood House is located
at 7092 Placida Road in Cape Haze, Englewood.

'Man on a Mission'


EI ilCI. January 25-31, 2012


BY BETSY SHARKEY
LOS ANGELES TIMES
Sf an on a Mission: Richard Garriott's
Road to the Stars" is the ultimate
vanity project (in the form of a docu-
mentary) for the video game guru who had
$30 million burning a hole in his pocket and
an equally outsized desire for a trip out of this
world. It's a bit precious in its narcissistic point
of view, but still a kick to watch the hopelessly
devoted astronaut wannabe fulfill his wildest
dream.
The film traces the training, the rocket ship ride
and the time he spent at the International Space
Station in 2008 in one of the most expansive, and
no doubt expensive, home movies you're ever
likely to see, Uncle Bill's Rome adventure not
withstanding.
Not to put a fine point on it, but the 50-year-old
Garriott's chief accomplishment is in the area of
developing fantasy role-playing computer games,
which makes this trip seem a little "Tron"-like, with
him actually stepping into the picture. The fact that
he sometimes dresses like a knight errant is just
the icing on that cake.
Garriott comes by his obsession naturally, with
father Owen a NASA astronaut-scientist who
spent time on Skylab when Garriott was growing
up footage from that time is intercut along the
way. Like countless kids of that era, he wanted to
be an astronaut too, but bad eyesight derailed that
plan before he had a chance to try.
The film details that back story, from the dream


denied to the driven entrepreneur who found
himself awash in funds just as the idea of private
citizens taking shuttle rides was gaining traction.
Things start to get more interesting as director
Mike Woolf, who moves from documentary shorts
to feature-length project with this film, walks us
through what it really takes, besides $30 million,
to take that flight. To begin with, the ticket was only
available on the Russian craft Soyuz, and much
of Garriott's training, including learning a new
language, took place at the cosmonaut training
center in what is called Star City.
Whether Garriott's personal physician is testing
his internal organs for the rigors of space travel
or Garriott is practicing escape maneuvers in
the Black Sea in case the capsule lands in the
ocean on the return trip, there is the wide-eyed
excitement of a kid with a new toy about him
that lends a certain charm to the film. The idea
of making his dad proud, and the fact that the
trip makes him part of a very exclusive club of
second-generation space travelers, surfaces
again and again.
As you might expect, the footage of the
launch and the shots of earth from space, are
exhilarating. And since this is not CNN and
there's no need to cut away for commercial, the
film takes its time with these.
The film goes off course a bit when Garriott
starts explaining the various experiments he's
taken with him into space it starts feeling like
an attempt to justify such an extravagant indul-
gence. He needn't worry. It's enough fun for the

REX MORGAN By Woody Wilson and Graham Nolan
Tetanus and tetanus shots .. . .....-


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I'd like to tell my story
about tetanus shots. When
I was 14 or 15, I worked on
my grandfather's potato
farm and was dirty from
head to toe. We picked up
potatoes and put them
in crates. My cousins, of
which I had many (I am
one of 52 grandchildren),
all worked on the farm. I
accidentally put my hand
through a window and cut
my wrist, which required
stitches. Because I was so
dirty, I was given a dose of
tetanus antitoxin. My arm
immediately swelled and
ached all over. I lay on a
couch for three days. From
then on, I wouldn't take
another tetanus shot, but
I became a nurse and had
to have a booster. I took it,
and several hours later my
arm became swollen and
fire-red. Ten years later,
when the time for another
booster came up, the doc-
tor suggested taking half a
dose. I did and got some
swelling but nothing like
the previous shots. I am
81 now and don't think I'll
have another shot. M.C.
ANSWER: Tetanus is a
dreadful illness. The teta-
nus bacterium is widely
found in soil and is also ac-
quired from some indoor
locations. The organism
produces a poison (toxin)
that causes severe and
painful muscle spasms, in-
cluding lockjaw. Adults are
told to get a booster shot of
the tetanus vaccine every
10 years. Few do.
When people talk about
the tetanus shot, confusion
arises. One shot is tetanus
vaccine, called tetanus tox-
oid, a product made from
the inactivated tetanus
poison. It spurs the body
to make antibodies that
neutralize the bacterium's
poison. It takes a little time
for those antibodies to
arise. Therefore, teta-
nus antitoxin, a product
containing antibodies to
the poison, is given along
with the vaccine for a
contaminated wound. In
these days, the antibodies
are derived from humans.
In the old days, they came
from horses and caused
many to react badly to the
injection.
I believe your reactions
happened mostly from
the antitoxin, which, in
those days, was probably
the horse product. All the
same, if I were taking care
of you, I wouldn't give you
the vaccine or the antitox-
in. It sounds like you react
to both. People should
realize the difference
between the two shots.
And people should get the
vaccine every 10 years.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
Help. My uric acid is
elevated, which my doctor
says is a sign of gout. I'm
not a rich old man. I am
a 75-year-old woman.
The doctor recommends I
drink cherry juice, which is
expensive. Can I substitute
cranberry juice? Can I con-
trol this with diet? G.R.
ANSWER: High uric acid,
which comes from the
daily metabolism of cells,
is associated with gout.
You, however, do not have
gout. You have asymptom-
atic hyperuricemia (HI-
purr-YOUR-uh-SEE-me-
uh), a higher-than-normal
blood level of uric acid
without having any signs
or symptoms of gout. Two-
thirds of people with such
elevation in uric acid never
develop gout. The cutoff
point for blood uric acid is
7 mg/dL (416 mmol/L). Do
you know how far above
that number your uric acid
is? Rich old men aren't the
only ones who get gout.
Neither of your two
medicines raises the
uric-acid level. Some
water pills (diuretics) do.
HydroDIURIL is one.
You're not sitting on
the edge of a cliff. Making
some changes will bring
down the uric acid without
spending any money. If
you're even a little over-
weight, lose some pounds.
Decrease your intake of red
meat, and don't eat organ
meat like liver. Go easy with
shellfish. Don't drink pop.
Dairy products lower uric
acid. Low-fat dairy prod-
ucts are the best, since they
do not raise cholesterol.
Cut way back on any alco-
hol, especially beer, which
boosts uric acid.
I have heard that cherries
and cherry juice bring down
uric acid. I can't give you
figures on how effective the
cherry treatment is. I don't
believe it works. If you make
the dietary changes I men-
tioned, you ought to see a
drop in uric acid without
spending a penny.

Yesterday's Jumbles: WHARF TRICK SHIELD SPRUCE
Answer: The underwater casino featured -
FISH AND CHIPS

A sticky waffle iron


Dear Heloise: I have a
waffle iron with remov-
able nonstick plates. The
plates have a buildup of
cooking spray, oil, etc.,
that has rendered them
no longer "nonstick,"
and I have tried numer-
ous methods to remove
the gunk. Nothing has
worked. Do you have any
suggestions? -Walt B.,
via email
Yes, I do! Of course, you
should follow the manu-
facturer's directions first.
Here's the Heloise hint:
Soak a paper towel or
napkin with sudsing am-
monia (it has detergent in
it) and place between the
waffle-iron grids. Leave
it for several hours (out
of the way) or overnight.
Then, use a little dish
soap and hot water with a
nonabrasive, scrub-type
sponge or plastic brush.
Rinse well, and dry com-
pletely.
To re-season your
waffle iron, if needed,
take pieces of bread, coat
with unsalted shortening
or unsalted butter and
place one in each section
of the cooled iron. Close
the lid and then turn it
on. Cook until the bread
is browned, then take it
out, wipe and that's it!
Heloise Update:
Lecithin, found in many
cooking-oil sprays, leaves
a gummy residue when
sprayed on a HOT sur-
face. DON'T spray oil on
a hot griddle. This should
help prevent any future
buildup. Heloise


Hints from Heloise

Organic milk
Dear Heloise: The lady
who recently wrote that
she is always having to
throw away half-used
cartons of milk because
she doesn't drink it fast
enough should buy or-
ganic milk. It lasts a long
time. Check the dates in
the store, and you will see.
Why does it last longer? I
have no idea. A Reader,
North Little Rock, Ark.
How right you are, and
thanks for reminding us.
Ultrapasteurization and
packaging are the reasons
organic milk has such a
long shelf life. A major
manufacturer of organic
milk offers both pasteur-
ized and ultrapasteurized
milk. The pasteurized has
a shelf life of one to two
weeks, compared with the
ultrapasteurized, with a
sell-by date several weeks
out.
There are single serv-
ings of organic milk that
keep at room temperature
and have an extended
shelf life. Heloise
P.S.: Also, lactose-free
milk (whole, 2 percent or
fat-free) has a longer life,
too!

College-bound senior doesn't

measure up in parents'eyes


DEAR ABBY: I'm 18
years old. I play two
competitive sports,
maintain a 4.0 GPA, have
good friends and will be
attending the college of
my dreams. Yet for some
reason I cannot get along
with my parents.
It seems like I can't live
up to their standards. We
get into huge fights every
day over insignificant
things. My parents con-
tinually tell me they don't
think I will handle college
very well because I "can't
get along with people."
But their lack of faith just
frustrates me and we get
into more fights.
In reality, the only peo-
ple I don't get along with
are my parents. This is
unsettling to me because
next fall I will be across
the country from them
and I feel they will be
happy that I'm gone. I'm
at a loss as to what to do
to control my temper and
fix my relationship with
my parents before I leave.
Your advice would be ap-
preciated. CLIMBING
THE WALLS IN CLEVE-
LAND
DEAR CLIMBING THE
WALLS: It's possible that
your parents may be
suffering from separa-
tion anxiety. You, their
child, are about to leave
the nest, and they may
be dealing with conflict-
ing feelings of pride in
your accomplishments
and sadness that you
are about to fly from the
nest. It may not be a lack
of faith in you. Also, they
may be having second
thoughts about how they
can afford the tuition and
other college expenses
beyond possible financial
aid.
Whatever their reasons
are, you need some tools
to help you stay calm
and not fly off the handle
when your buttons are
pushed regardless of
who is pressing them. In
my booklet, "The Anger in
All of Us and How to Deal
With It," I offer sugges-
tions that will help you
gain control of your emo-
tions so that you will lose
your temper less often. It

Anger Booklet, EO. Box

61054-0447. Shipping and
handling are included
in the price. Anger is a
normal emotion. There
are probably no human
beings who don't experi-
ence anger at one time
or another. However,
it's important that you
learn some techniques to
handle your emotional
reactions more construc-
tively than you have been.
Not only will these tech-
niques help you with your
parents now, but also they
will help you when you're
away at college adjusting
to new people and new
situations.
Remember, the average
person may become irri-
tated, angry or frustrated
several times a day. The
key is to deal with these
emotions effectively. Talk
to your parents about
your feelings and explore
what's going on. By focus-
ing on what is triggering
your negative emotions
instead of reacting with
an outburst, you can not
only defuse your anger
but also retain your dig-
nity, and possibly achieve
a more informed under-
standing of how your
parents may really feel.
I hope that the outcome
will be a rapprochement
with your parents.

"Behold I stand at the door and knock, if any man hear
my voice, and open the door I will come in to him and
will sup with him, and he with me."-- Revelation 3:20.
Our eternal destiny revolves around the response
we make to that knocking. It will not always be... it
could stop today "My Spirit will not always strive with
man," Let Jesus in, he is there to lift you up and let
you out.

LE AGU S. TO


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


I HOROSCOPE
ARIES (March 21-April 19).The emphasis will be
on preventive action, doing your homework and
researching to learn what has been effective in the
past. Make a case for yourself before you are put"on
the stand."
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). A problem may be
"stressing you out,"but it also is potentially energiz-
ing once you realize it is solvable. The three small
steps you take today will get you halfway there.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Dive right into what's
bothering you. By the end of the day, you'll feel
ooo


pleased with how you dealt with your challenges
and you'll know that you have grown.
CANCER (June 22-July 22).You will find tricks to
managing your emotional state. For instance, you
can reduce anxiousness by doing a mental simula-
tion of the events that lead to anxiety.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Creating a good vibe at home
and having a bit of fun with your family will be top
priorities. This will be made more challenging when
others aren't getting along.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your soul searching will
lead you to make a to-do list of concrete actions. You


know that things change on a spiritual level when
you work for a tangible result.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You don't seek knowledge
just so you'll be smarter than the next guy. You learn
because it's fun and quite profitable for you to do so.
Your education will reflect your lightness of heart.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).You have the capacity
for outlandish imaginings, the likes of which will
put you in the class of exceptional visionaries. Men-
tal audacity will be followed by daring expansion.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).The coming days
will be a festival of friendship, camaraderie and


teamwork.Today you'll learn how best to com-
municate with partners. Your superb listening skills
will pave the way.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).You'll feel like a
wizard trying to find your place.The more you try to
fit in with the"muggles"the better you understand
your gifts, qualities and, yes, peculiarities.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Yourjob or home
responsibilities will seem to clash with your ambi-
tions and desires.The conflict won't be resolved in
a day, but by acknowledging the reality of it, you'll
make considerable progress.


PISCES (Feb.19-March 20). Someone sees a differ-
ent you from the one reflected in your bathroom
mirror. You may glimpse how this person views you
as you listen to his or her compliments and take
them to heart.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 25).You respect your
elders and appreciate all that can be gained in time,
though you don't accept that you are aging! In the
next 12 months, you get younger through fitness
and lightness of being. A love interest will help the
process. Aries and Leo people adore you. Your lucky
numbers are: 39,1,22,30 and 14.


JANRIC CLASSIC SUDOKU
Fill in the blank cells using numbers 1 to 9. Each number can appear only once in each row,
column and 3x3 block. Use logic and process of elimination to solve the puzzle. The difficulty
level ranges from Bronze (easiest) to Silver to Gold (hardest).

Opening lead: Six of 6

There are two ways to tackle this
deal. One is to take every finesse in
sight and pray that you do not
misguess in the critical situation. The
other is to invest an overtrick or two
to guarantee a vulnerable game.
Which would you choose?
Once South described a minimum,
balanced hand with no four-card
major, North knew exactly where to


place the contract. The no-trump
game was reached without further
ado.
West led a low spade, and declarer
paused to consider the situation. With
five sure tricks in the other suits, four
in clubs was all that was needed to
bring home the bacon. The only
danger to the contract was that the
opponents would establish tricks in
hearts before the clubs were good.
There was a simple way to prevent
this.
To play low from dummy on the
opening lead risked losing the first
trick to the king of spades and East
would then shift to a heart. To prevent
that and keep East off lead, declarer
rose with the ace of spades and then
took the avoidance play of cashing
the king of clubs and then running the
jack. West won with queen but could
not revert to spades profitably, since
that would give declarer a second
trick in the suit. After any other
return, declarer had the time to take
the tricks needed to complete the
game without giving the defense any
chance.
