Shuttle supporter Venice City Council Member Emilio Carlesimo, shuttle
operator Kathy Cushing and Venice Cafe owner Kay Kropac discuss the
downtown parking situation Tuesday. The free shuttle runs four hours a day,
taking shoppers around to local stores and restaurants near Centennial Park.



Shuttle awaits



advertising OK


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

The free downtown Venice
shuttle operated by Kathy
Cushing has been a fixture for
more than two months. But
its future is uncertain, in part
because the operator can't
place advertising on her vehi-
cle until a new city ordinance
is adopted.
A draft ordinance is on the
city attorney's desk awaiting
review, but it's not a city prior-
ity and it's uncertain when it
will come before council for
consideration.
Cushing, meanwhile, is


going into her third month
without making a cent.
She has her permit located
next to a small sign on the
front window that indicates
the shuttle is free. It was the
placement and size designated
by city staff, she said.
"I thought the city would
have approved the ordinance
three months ago," Cushing
said.
Businesses want to know
what city rules on advertis-
ing will be adopted before
committing.

From Dec. 1 through Feb. 1,
the concessionaire at Snook
Haven Park operated the res-

Sarasota County officials
informed Kenneth Keefe,
owner of Sunrise Sunset
Concessions of Snook Haven,
last week that the license had


expired, after learning about
the lapse from the Sun papers.
Keefe got the company's per-

to date by paying $394 to the
state Department of Business
and Professional Regulation,
including a $100 late fee.
Renewals were mailed out
during the week of Oct. 10 to

Beach yoga gets reprieve


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

Yoga classes on Venice
Beach will continue.
Elin Larsen teaches the pop-
ular free classes. Participants
compensate her in praise
that is posted on her website
(www.yogawithelin.com).
Larsen was told recently


she would have to pay a fee
and schedule the classes
through the county Parks and
Recreation Department. She
encouraged yoga supporters
to flood officials with letters
supporting the classes.
The letters would "tell the
county how important this is
to Venice," Larsen wrote in a
letter provided by the county.


She added that the county "is
trying to change yoga on the
beach as we know it."
A spokesman said the
county is not trying to
stop the yoga classes from
happening.
The decision to formal-
ize them was made after the

Jetty restrooms




raise lease issue


The public restrooms at Anita's Sandcastle will undergo a facelift in the coming weeks. The city is making long
overdue repairs to the popular hot dog stand at the South Jetty.


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

What started out as a
complaint from a constituent
about the condition of public
restrooms at the popular hot
dog stand at the South Jetty
now has a city council mem-
ber asking larger questions
about its lease.
Anita's Sandcastle, in busi-
ness for more than 10 years, is
a must-visit for tourists.
Its public restrooms not
only serve customers but jet-
tygoers, including surfers and
fishermen.
Council Member Bob Dan-
iels last week took the unusual
step of highlighting the poor
condition of the restrooms by


displaying photos he took of
the facility for other council
members to view.
Holes in the walls, peeling
paint, rusted faucets, an old
street sign covering a kicked-
in hole and a sink held up by
two-by-fours leave the wrong
kind of impression of the city,
said Daniels, who wondered
why the city hasn't maintained
the restrooms better.
"It's pretty pathetic," he
said. "This jetty is a major
stopping point for tour-
ists, especially at lunch and
sundown. It's packed. To have
those restrooms look like that
is pretty sad."

Furniture family scion Todd Britton dies


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Well-known local business-
man and resident Ronald
Todd Britton passed away
unexpectedly at his home in
Venice last Thursday within
minutes of returning from his
family's North Carolina home.
"My brother was very much
an outdoorsman, enjoying
boating and fishing," recalled
Johnny Britton.
During the past three years


after retirement from Britton's
Carpet One Design Center,
with his longtime partner,
Cheri Lane Carden he spent
time enjoying his grandchil-
dren in North Carolina and in
Venice. He was 58.
His career in the furniture
business began as a young
man assisting his grandfather,
former Washington, D.C.,
detective Harry Britton, who
came to Venice in 1947 and
set up a corporation for his
furniture company.


A few years later Harry's
son Ron, who was living in
Washington, D.C., came to
Venice, initially working as an
insurance salesman but later
joining his father in the store.
One of the early tasks for
Todd Britton, one of Ron's
sons, was to accompany his
grandfather to Tampa to pick
up furniture for the store.
In 2007 when I interviewed
Todd Britton on the 60th

New foreclosure filings up


County sees 9.3 percent increase


By BRENDA BARBOSA
STAFF WRITER

The total number of new fore-
closure filings for January was up
in Southwest Florida, indicating
a reversal in the downward trend
the area had enjoyed a year ago.
According to figures released
Monday, total foreclosure filings
in Charlotte and Sarasota coun-
ties, which include vacant lots,
took a significant turn upward,
leading housing officials to
speculate whether banks are
once again pursuing their legal
remedies after a period of confu-
sion that forced them to pull
back on new filings.
Based on the number of initial
foreclosures filed in the last three
months, it seems the "banks
are basically getting back into
the foreclosure business," said
Jim Masch, chief deputy with
the Charlotte County Clerk of
Courts. And most experts agree
the area will see even more fil-
ings in coming months, albeit
nowhere near the levels wit-
nessed at the height of the fore-
closure crisis in 2008 and 2009.
"It's not a good sign, but it's not
as bad as they were," Masch said.
Last month, Charlotte County
reported a total of 170 new


foreclosure filings, which includes
residential and commercial prop-
erties as well as vacant lots. That's
nearly a 16 percent increase from
the 147 cases filed in December
2011. In November, the total
number was 131.
In Sarasota County, the number
of filings saw a similar increase,
with 398 new cases reported, or
a 9.3 percent increase over the
previous month's 364 cases. In
November, that number was 338.
"The trend seems to be work-
ing its way upward since Sep-
tember," Masch said.
Although it's hard to tell exactly
what has fueled the recent spike,
experts say several factors have
contributed to this latest chap-
ter in the foreclosure saga. High
unemployment as well as the
expiration of unemployment
benefits may be fueling the
recent increase. And vacant lots,
which have significantly dropped
in value, could also be affecting
the numbers. Most likely, how-
ever, the numbers reflect defunct
cases that are working their way
through the system again.
"It's always a hard read," said
Bob "Fig" Newton, president of
the Punta-Gorda-Port Charlotte-
North Port Association of Real-
tors. "There are so many factors


from December
that play into the foreclosure
numbers, it's hard to say that it's
just one thing."
Still, housing experts are opti-
mistic that the worst of the fore-
closure woes are over. They point
to a drastic improvement over
the bleak picture that emerged
just after the housing collapse in
2007, and make note that the lat-
est numbers reflect initial filings
and not actual sales.
Newton said he sees more of
a willingness by banks to work
with short-sale buyers, and get
them to closing table quicker.
"The lenders are getting a lot
more organized," Newton said.
"A lot of banks are realizing
that short sales are better than
foreclosures."
Gary Jackson, director of the
Regional Economic Research
Institute and economics profes-
sor at Florida Gulf Coast Uni-
versity, agrees the latest report
paints a much more encourag-
ing picture than previous years.
"The good news is that it's
not as bad as it was," Jackson
said. "The length of foreclosure
in Florida is three years, which
gives people time to work out a
settlement."

occasions when he was
attending Venice High
School that his grandfa-

The city has had dif-

Daniels recently
persuaded council to
direct the city's public

make improvements, like
replacing steel doors and
at least one of three sinks,

"It's free, although tips
are welcome," Cushing
said. "They just wave us
down and we'll take them

on how to make it work,

store was a furniture
store, we sold carpet,"
Todd Britton said then.
"Flooring had become a
third of the business."
When his father sold
the business to a third
party, Todd Britton and
his brother Johnny set up
their own flooring busi-
ness. Later, with many
requests for furniture,
they introduced accesso-
ries. Johnny Britton sold
his interest in 2000, and
Todd's daughter Carrie
joined it and became
assistant manager. Now
raising her family, she
still freelances through


within the next few weeks.
When he looked closer,
Daniels found out the
city pays for restroom
supplies and utilities,
and also pays Deans
$4,000 annually to keep
the restrooms tidy.
The city earns $10,000
annually from rent.
Daniels said he wants
to revisit the lease, which
is up for renewal in 2014.
He thinks there's a missed

The lack of public
parking is also a hurdle.
People drive around and
around looking for prime
parking spaces, making
Cushing's job even more
difficult.
She's trying to get the
city to designate at least
one parking spot as a
base for the shuttle. But
that hasn't gained trac-
tion so far.
The city has committed
to pursuing three public
charging stations for elec-
tric vehicles, but that's

the store as an interior
decorator.
Founder Harry Britton
died in 1967 and son Ron
Britton died last August.
"In less than a year we
have lost two very impor-
tant family members and
local businessmen," said
Johnny Britton.
In early 2008 Todd
Britton retired and the
business was acquired by
Johnny and Joni Britton.
The store underwent
a $500,000 revamp to
become Britton's Carpet
One Design Center, 1190
E. Venice Ave.

and higher revenue for the
city at that location.
"That's a popular
place, but it's only open
for lunch," Daniels said.
He envisions some-
thing bigger, like a
Sharky's, which sells
T-shirts, shark's teeth and
other Venice souvenirs.
"I would think they can
do other things," Daniels
said. "We're losing money

contingent upon receiv-
ing grants. The main
station will be located in
Centennial Park.
For Cushing it's
another delay that could
be lethal to her fledgling
business. It currently
takes her four hours
to charge; it could be
accomplished in a half
hour at a commercial
charging station, she
said.
Cushing wants to keep
her business "Venice

made on the store and

starting Carpet One.
"During his involve-
ment with Carpet One

bered as being as very

Man barricades himself in room after threatening family


AVenice man was
arrested Saturday after
waving a gun at mem-
bers of his
family.
According
to a Sara-
sota County
Sheriff's
I office
report:
William
GRIFFITH William
Kent Griffith,
75, 600 block Circlewood
Drive, Venice, was arguing
with his wife in the master
bedroom over computer
files.
That apparently drew
the attention of others
in the house. Deputies
say Griffith slapped his
daughter in the arm.
Another man grabbed the
defendant's cellphone to
contact law enforcement.
That's when Griffith
pulled a gun and pointed
it at all three victims,
ranting that it's his gun
and he wanted his phone
back.
The daughter and
the man left the house.
Griffith barricaded him-
self in the master bed-
room with his wife. Even-
tually, he allowed her to
come out unharmed, and
later gave himself up.
He was arrested and
charged with domestic
battery and three counts
of aggravated assault. His
bond is $85,000.

Police issue
burglary warning

Venice police remind
residents to lock their
vehicles and homes,
especially because several
burglaries have occurred
in the past few days.
On Friday, Feb. 3, a
home in Sawgrass and a
home in Waterford were
broken into through
the front doors with
a pry bar and several
items were taken. Both
burglaries took place
between 11 a.m. and
1 p.m.
A man and woman
were seen sitting in a
light-colored sedan,
possibly a Toyota Camry,
in the driveway of one
of the homes. The man
is described as black, of
average height with a
stocky build, probably
in his 40s. The woman is
described as black, about
5 feet, 8 inches tall with
shoulder length hair.
Sometime after
1:30 a.m. Feb. 5 an
unlocked vehicle was
burglarized at the owner's
residence in LaPavia.
Among the items taken
were keys, one of which


was used to steal the
vehicle sitting next to
the burglarized vehicle.
Police are searching for a
silver four-door 2011 Ford
Focus with Florida license
plate 117WMY.
Anyone having infor-
mation about these inci-
dents should contact the
Venice Police Detective
Division, 941-486-2444.

THE FOUNDATION OF COMMUNIry


Together with our donors, Gulf Coast Community Foundation
transforms our region through bold and proactive philanthropy.
Gulf Coast is a public charity that was created in 1995 through
the sale of the Venice Hospital. Since then, we have welcomed
more than 500 charitable funds established by generous donors,
and we have invested more than $130 million in grants in the
areas of arts and culture, health and human services, education,
civic and economic development, and the environment.
At Gulf Coast, we take seriously and as a matter of character our
responsibility to be good stewards of the community assets and
donor funds entrusted to us. We are providing this new quarterly
update on our grantmaking and fiscal strength to inform you of the
impact and progress of your community foundation.


We think you will see, with each figure, how strong we have built
the foundation of our community. More importantly, it is the stories
of lives transformed by philanthropy, which we hope to share in
these pages and others, that will testify to the spirit of our donors,
the commitment of our nonprofit partners, and the legacy of Gulf
Coast's founders.
Warmest regards,


Teri A Hansen, President and CEO
Gulf Coast Community Foundation


James Gallogly, Board Chair

Beacon Bargains funds local services


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

A bright, new thrift
boutique is staging an
open house Thursday,
Feb. 9, from 3 to 6 p.m.
- Beacon Bargains, 1680
South Tamiami Trail,
at the southern U.S. 41
Business and Bypass
junction.
"It was decided there
should be a place to
shop where people can
buy gently used and new
items which will raise
funds to benefit our 487
members," said Carolyn
Eagen, executive direc-
tor of Beacon House.
"Members of the Venice
Area Chamber of Com-
merce came up with the
name and a few days ago

we opened this inno-
vative concept for our
organization."
Beacon House is a


center where people with
mental illnesses can go
daily.
"Members suffer all


ranges of functional abil-
ities and illnesses and are
referred to us following
their acute and critical
care," said Eagen.
She had an oppor-
tunity to acquire the
former Moody Insurance
building after the agency
moved to the island
and saw the boutique
as an opportunity to
raise money to increase
programs in the Venice
community. Initially it
was to be a place where
talented members could
display and sell their art,
but it blossomed with
input from supporters
who have encouraged
donations from the
community.
At 1,000 square feet,
the boutique offers a


circular walk through
five rooms, each with
different sections offer-
ing kitchen and home
accessories, collectibles,
jewelry and artwork, and
then into women's fash-
ions, purses and shoes. A
small furniture and bed-
ding section leads to the
men's section, and finally
there is the books, CDs
and DVDs area.
Dale Durmheiser, the
boutique manager, has
20 years' retail experi-
ence in higher-end
stores, including Neiman
Marcus and Saks Fifth
Avenue. He welcomes
volunteers to assist in the
store and asks the com-
munity to donate items
for resale, which Beacon
House members will sort


from the donation bags
and then display. Dona-
tions can be dropped
off at the store, which
is open 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
Wednesday through
Saturday.
"We are working to
raise money for a better
permanent roadside
sign," said Eagen.
She believes the orga-
nization needs better
exposure to tell people
about its services and,
more important, to fight
the stigma of mental
illness.
To volunteer or offer
donations or funding,
call Rick O'Connell,
volunteer coordinator, at
941-953-3477.

Accessories outlet to open in South Venice


GONDOLIER PHOTO BY ROGER BUTTON
Gene Flowers holds plans for the complete renovation of the former Stephen's Furni-
ture in South Venice, which he will be opening as Picture & Accessory Outlet.


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

"This area is just poised
for incredible, unbelievable
growth in the next five to 10
years," said Gene Flowers,
owner of Picture & Acces-
sory Outlet in Port Char-
lotte, who has acquired the
former Stephen's Furniture
store in SouthVenice.
Within two months he
intends to open his Venice
Picture & Accessory Outlet,
4427 South Tamiami Trail.
The spacious 14,000-square-
foot building will be com-
pletely renovated and
carpeted throughout to
become a home accessories
store.
"It is going to be an
incredible, very unique
store," said Flowers. "There
is nothing like this in Venice.


There will be 4,000 pictures,
300 different lamps, accent
furniture, silk flowers and
everything to decorate your
home."
He will be putting seven
full and part-time people
to work and eventually will
close the Port Charlotte
location he and his wife
have operated for the past
10 years.
In the Venice outlet store
he will be constantly chang-
ing the inventory, getting
new items weekly from 25
vendors to always bring
in the latest and newest
products.
"I would like to get open
in season, but I am having
trouble with permitting and
likely could be delayed for
two months," he said.
Flowers said the contrac-
tor is ready to go and he


has people wanting to go to
work.
He owned and operated
a golf course in Iowa before
moving to Florida opening
the Port Charlotte store a
decade ago. He purchased

Bringing 2012 London
fashions to Venice is
Janice Riordan, with her
new store Seaside Chic
Boutique, 305-AW Ven-
ice Ave. Plans are to open
early March with an
eclectic, modern Euro-
style interior with white
laminate.
She is introducing hip,
cutting-edge fashions for
all ages and sizes with
fun, comfortable and
chic designs from XCVI,
Sanctuary, ISDA and
other London, Paris and
New York fashion houses.
"This season is all
about color, with per-
simmon, fuchsia, lemon
and lavender mixed
with subtle colors of the
past," she said, "mixing
sexy loungewear with
accessories, not only
for daughters, but chic
moms and grandmas
who are comfortable in
modern fashions with a


twist from the past."
Originally from New
York, she moved to Ber-
gen City, N.J., to raise her
family. Coming to Venice,
she brought her more
than 20 years of interior
designer experience.
A fashionista, in 2008
she opened her first
Venice store, Seaside
Chic, 217W Venice Ave.,
selling home furnish-
ings and accessories and
offering interior design
services. Introducing
some apparel, she real-
ized there was a demand
and decided to open the
new boutique. She is
looking to hire fashion-
conscious, experienced
employees.
Hours will be Monday
through Saturday from
10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and
Sunday afternoons. Call
941-484-1313.

Sunshine Boyz'
second store
"Here we grow again!"
exclaimed Dan Charney,
who with partner Brian
Corson of Sunshine
Boyz, 121 W Venice
Ave., has acquired the
neighboring location,
formerly Destination
Beach, where they will


be opening their sec-
ond store, Sunshine
Boyz Island Home, 133
W Venice Ave., around
April 1.
"It will be our new
concept in home fur-
nishings, displaying eight
or nine complete rooms
in very contemporary
island settings, showing
customers how they can
decorate their condo or
island home," he said.
"The living rooms and
bedrooms will be com-
pletely fitted out with
tables, chairs, beds with
pillows, accents, mirrors,
custom pendant and
chandelier lights. Every-
thing on display will be
available at our stores,
and it is envisaged the
room designs likely will
change monthly."
Charney said they will
continue to open both
stores in the evenings
as it has proved very
beneficial, giving work-
ing people the chance to
shop. The stores are open
10 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday
through Saturday and
Sunday afternoons. Call

county Parks and Recre-

to county commission-
ers. When Brown met

offered the same rate.
Larsen agreed to get a

Ultimately the county
agreed to let Larsen con-
tinue to teach the classes

The restaurant is now

"We would certainly
expect all of our busi-
ness partners to be up to

spokesman Curt Preisser.
According to the
concessionaire's contract
with the county, Sunrise
Sunset is required to pay
the county 12.5 percent
of its monthly sales.

Venice Beach is owned
by the city of Venice but
operated by the county
through an interlocal

Brown said that Keefe,
who has been behind in
his lease payments since
last May, recently gave
the county a check for
$2,514.24 for September
rent.
"We let them know
that in no way does that
forgive the previous pay-
ments that were owed,"
Brown said. "We're going
to be meeting with them
in the near future to ...
talk about this whole
situation. It is our inten-
tion to be reviewing with
them their proposal,
their business plan and

those messages to county

"In addition to
improving health and
well-being for residents
and tourists alike, yoga

"It's fair to say that we

Brown stated previ-

is a primary concern for
the county.
Meanwhile, DBPR

SUN NEWSPAPERS


OUR VIEW



Let's stop enabling sales tax evasion


Only in a Wonderland like Talla-
hassee could a bill designed to
find a way to collect taxes that
are already due, but not being col-
lected, be construed as "raising taxes."
Raising tax revenue, yes; raising taxes,
no.
But that's the position of Gov. Rick
Scott and Republican leaders in the
Legislature, and it's an election year
in a place where strict Republican
orthodoxy often trumps common
sense. So those who hope to find a
system in which the state can collect
Internet taxes it is rightfully due will
have to counter the "no new taxes/
no tax increase" fallacy. When you're
peering through the looking glass, that
may seem a long shot.
Last week, members of the Senate
Finance and Tax Committee agreed
to introduce a bill (SB 7206) that
would require online retailers, like
Amazon and eBay, to collect state


sales tax if they link with in-state
websites with "click-throughs" or
pay a commission for links. It's
simply a way to work around the
federal loophole that lets Web-based
retailers avoid collecting 6 percent
state sales taxes if they don't have
a warehouse or physical store in a
state.
Right now, state law puts the burden
of those collections on individual
taxpayers, who are expected to cut a
check to the tax department for online
purchases when no tax was collected.
It's the law, but very, very few taxpay-
ers comply. Big retailers, like Best Buy
and Walmart, which do business in
stores down the street and over the
Internet, already collect and pay the
tax.
What it means is that bricks-and-
mortar stores exact a 6 percent tax
on customers, while online-only
retailers don't. That means stores


that already support our communi-
ties by employing our neighbors
and paying local property taxes are
placed at a 6 percent disadvantage
compared to the online retailers
based halfway across the country.
The situation has gotten to the point
that consumers may often "window
shop" at local stores, then go home
and buy goods at a 6 percent dis-
count online.
We think that's fundamentally
unfair.
Amazon the 300-pound gorilla
of the Internet is dangling a
promise to establish a physical pres-
ence with two warehouses in Florida
if it receives a two-year sales tax
exemption. Since the warehouses
would bring as many as 3,000 new
jobs, and since Amazon has man-
aged to avoid paying the taxes for
so many years, the offer is entic-
ing. California, South Carolina and


Indiana have already accepted deals
with the company.
The "no-new-tax-burden" posi-
tion of the Republican leadership
would seem to undermine the state's
negotiating strength. Immediately,
it threatens legislative action that
might establish a method to collect
what has been estimated to be as
much as $800 million. That's a lot
of money, potentially, but it's hardly
"new." People just aren't paying what
lawfully should be paid because
they know the state can't and won't
unleash the Internet Tax Police on
citizen-scofflaws.
What makes sense is to flip the mir-
ror and find some way to collect what
is already due by requiring online
retailers to do the same as we require
of Main Street retailers. To block that
effort due to mad-hatter political
orthodoxy just seems curiouser and
curiouser.


The best?


The road to the White House,
or at least a shot at the White
House, is often littered with
mistakes. Some mistakes lead
to the downfall of candidates;
some linger for a few weeks
and go away. Some are just
laughable and make us realize
there is the human aspect to
be considered when looking
over the candidates.
President Clinton certainly
proved that you can overcome
mistakes and win the coveted
chair, while John Kerry made
the mistake of believing
Americans could be tricked
with his waffling and it cost
him dearly.
Now we have Mitt Romney
stating that he is not worried
about the poor of this coun-
try. The interesting thing is he
said it so soon after winning
handily in Florida. Could it be
that the afterglow of this vic-
tory made him feel invincible?
Perhaps he just figured no one
was listening. Either way, he
is going to pay for that remark
somewhere around Novem-
ber. I am sure the other side
is loading that one up in the
cannons and waiting to see if
he makes it that far.
You have to ask yourself,
does Mitt know his audience?
With statements like the one
he made concerning the poor
of our country, one has to
think perhaps not.
Second, I am wondering if
Mr. Romney realizes the rapid
pace at which the middle class
is declining toward poverty.
Most Americans are now either
rich or poor, with not a lot
of in-between. This creates a
gap between us and him. If
Romney's strategy is to capture
America's middle-class vote,
he is certainly in for a surprise.
Middle America is just not a
political power today.
Furthermore, Mr. Romney is
certainly not Ronald Reagan;
he is not going to convince
us Middle America is still
there and can prosper under
his leadership. We all know


politicians try to speak for us,
claim to know everyone's plight
in life and preach to us that
they can solve all of the prob-
lems. All it takes to receive this
brilliant leadership is a vote.
In my mind, the very min-
ute that Mitt stated he is not
worried about the poor or the
rich in one sentence, he lost a
vote. Am I the minority or the
majority? I think that will be
determined in November.
Now, it's a long time until
November. I am sure the pos-
sibility exists that his staff can
find a way to express what
he was trying to convey to
the voters over and over. The
problem for them is we are
used to this type of silliness
from presidential hopefuls.
We are getting pretty good at
weeding out the good, the bad
and the ugly.
The ultimate issue to me
is that I don't believe for one
second this guy could tell me
the price of a gallon of milk
at the 7-Eleven on the corner.
Nor do I believe that he looks
over the buy-one, get-one-
free deals at Publix so he can
create a shopping list. (Dry-
roasted peanuts were buy-
one, get-one on Friday. I love
those.)
I don't begrudge him for the
fact that he does not have to
worry about those things; it's
America. I do, however, take
exception to the fact that he
is not going to worry about
all Americans; he has made it
clear only one segment will be
his concern. While you don't
have to do the shopping or
confront decisions that face a
single mom on a limited bud-
get, as a presidential candidate
it would be wise to know all
about these things before you
come asking them for their
vote.
I wonder if the Republi-
can Party feels that anyone
will be better than what we
have today and the "R" by
their name on Election Day is
enough? Shame on the party;
you should have chosen a
better partner for the dance.
Really, this is all you got?
All Faiths Food Bank and
the Venice Gondolier and Sun
newspaper all joined the boat
parade in January, bringing our
total to 17. C'mon, boaters, we
need eight more in February to

Picked out. Is this a case of
the Indians in charge of the
teepee or the Florida High
School Athletic Association
continuing its witch hunt with
Venice High's athletic admin-
istration? Something smells
when programs are fined
major amounts of money,
hampering their income
stream for sporting events.
I'm a winter resident and this
smells like people in high
places have found easy pick-
ings at Venice. Please publish
the FHSAA list of fines levied
on other schools. There must
be some.
How much? A caller said
charitable donations should
only come from those individ-
uals who want to contribute.
Just how much money have
you contributed yourself?
They're there. About the rats
on the jetty I've walked that
jetty for many years because
I live near there and the rats
are there and they are big. Wait
until you have one run across
in front of you sometime.
Different. I do go along with
that Circus Arena. I think it's a
shame that it's not being reno-
vated for large sports events
and what not. We don't have
anything around for things
like that anywhere near here,
except all the way to Tampa. I
think it would be an excellent
idea. I think it's a shame that
a historical building like that
would be demolished. I don't
think it would be competing
with the Venice High School
Performing Art Center. This
could be totally different.
Not squirrels. That caller
who didn't think there are rats
on the jetty evidently hasn't
been there in the evening. The
rats come out and they are
certainly not squirrels, they
are rats and they come, a lot
of them, from underneath
the picnic tables to get scraps
that people leave behind.
They come out of the rocks
on the jetty. I've seen them


Let 'em


Have It
there myself and I can tell the
difference between a rat and a
squirrel.
Bigger issue. I'm going to
disagree with "Incompatible."
She's worried about a
5,000-capacity sports arena
and an airplane crashing into
it when it's full of people. What
I worry about are two airplane
crashes within a month, or two
weeks of each other, crashing
into the homes that are around
there. More than 5,000 people
live in that area. You tried to
cover up and push aside the
airplanes that crashed. I think
you should move the airport
out of the area. Another one
could crash into a supermar-
ket, like it did Publix. Think
about the people who live in
the area, not just the Circus
Arena.
Termination. If the Venice
High School athletic director
were an employee in the pub-
lic sector, he would have been
terminated a long time ago for
total incompetence. The vol-
leyball team situation, foot-
ball team situation and now
the baseball team all fined
and sanctioned by the state
because there's no oversight.


Editor's Note: None of the
violations for which the school
and its teams have been
sanctioned occurred under the
current athletic director.
Raise it. Four lanes leaving
Venice from the north. Four
lanes on Venice Avenue, east
and west. Four lanes leaving
on 41 south. Have we studied
where the traffic goes? Is it
through traffic to North Port or
Englewood? Why not build an
elevated road over the bypass
with very limited access and
leave the bypass itself for local
business traffic? Six lanes
would be killing off access to
local businesses and causing
businesses to relocate. It seems
like a poor planning process
causing tremendous economic
loss to local businesses who
are trying to stay alive in these
economic times. Think this
thing through before you start
cutting into the access off
highways of these businesses
that will ultimately be gone.
Wasted space. Why do we
need to see these long politi-
cal rants taking up too much
space by Martin? All he's doing
is making political attacks.
We're sick of it. He's not mayor
for a good reason. He was not
popular in the decisions that
he made. Please stop wasting
so much paper space on him.

April 13-22, with 10 days
of screen stars, seven
epic events and more
than 180 films.
Known for its artistic
caliber and educational
programs as well as
excellent parties, SFF
invites its guests to see
their world in a new
way by diving into the
best independent films
and experiencing the
passion of new and vet-
eran filmmakers on and
around the No. 1 beach
in the world.
The 2012 festival kicks
off Friday, April 13, with
Opening Night at the
Van Wezel Performing
Arts Hall. The evening
features a highly antici-
pated film and great
party after a red carpet
honoring the stars and
filmmakers.
The festival then
continues for 10 days
with more than 180 films
for audience of all ages,
more celebrity appear-
ances and special con-
versation-style events
with actors, writers and
directors.
Films run from 10 a.m.
to 10 p.m. daily at Regal
Cinemas Hollywood 20
on Main Street in down-
town Sarasota. Plus,
YouthFest film selections
are free for children 12
and under. The 2012 film
guide will be available
and tickets go on sale
March 23.
The mission of the
Sarasota Film Festival
is to celebrate the art of
filmmaking and the con-
tributions of filmmakers
by hosting an interna-
tional film festival and
developing year-long
programs for the eco-
nomic, educational and
cultural benefit of the
community.
The festival supports
and encourages indi-
vidual filmmakers by
supplying essential net-
working opportunities
and open dialogue with
intelligent, creative and


inquisitive consumers of
film. Further, it pro-
motes Sarasota, Manatee
and surrounding Gulf
Coast communities as
artistic hubs, contrib-
uting to the financial
and cultural success of
our southwest Florida
Suncoast region. The
Sarasota Film Festival is
a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit
organization.
The first SFF took
place in 1999 with just
eight films and six actors
and has grown to an
annual 10-day event
with more than 200
films, more than 250
filmmakers in atten-
dance, multiple special
events, symposiums,
panels and conversa-
tions featuring leaders
in the film industry. In
2010, Variety referred
to The Sarasota Film
Festival as "the acme of
regional film festivals."
The award-winning
Outreach and Educa-
tion programs of the
Sarasota Film Festival
are recognized by both
the National Endow-
ment for the Arts and
the Academy of Motion
Picture Arts and Sciences
for their community
involvement. These
programs bring the art of
filmmaking to students
in regional public and
private schools and are
completely free, fostering
year-round creative and
cultural development in
the Sarasota region.
Specific year-round
programs target varied
audiences, including
independent and
student filmmakers,
at-risk and underserved
youth, arts organizations
in a variety of disciplines
and social service
agencies.
The guest actors,
directors and produc-
ers who visit Sarasota
for the festival are an
annual highlight too.
Attendees have many
opportunities to meet
them and learn about
the art of filmmaking
during evening events
and the SFF Conversa-
tion series.
Special guests over
the years have included
Jon Favreau, Alan Alda,
Tippi Hedren, William
H. Macy, the late Sydney


I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Columns are a reminder
Editor:
Thankfully, the Gondo-
lier periodically reminds
Venice residents that Ed
Martin was by far the
worst mayor Venice has
had in living memory by
publishing his opinion
columns.
These examples
of Martin's selective
memory usually include
a diatribe against sitting
council members, whom
he considers to be his
intellectual inferiors,
who ran against and
defeated his cronies
on council. Luckily, he
saw the light and didn't
run for re-election. For
once his brain over-
ruled his ego and he
avoided the humiliation
of a resounding personal
defeat.


Having driven a
personal agenda that
had little to do with the
interests of the city, he
squandered our money
on the Sunshine debacle;
wasted our resources
on trying to shut down
the airport; divided the
residents into political
camps; made business a
four-letter word; and set
our fiscal well-being back
by years.
Venice voters occasion-
ally need to be reminded
where all our money
went and Martin's ability
to detail where he went
wrong becomes more
obvious in his writings to
all except himself. Such is
the penalty of narcissism
and hubris.
Keep up the good work.

Riverview downs Venice


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

Riverview scored single runs
in the fifth, sixth and seventh
innings to notch a 3-1 victory over
Venice on Tuesday night in the
season-opener at Venice High.
"We have some growing up to
do," said newVenice coach Fred
Sosnowski. "When you don't run
out a hit ball that just shows you
don't 100 percent care. I'm not
saying they don't care, they get
so upset or down on themselves
that they don't realize the play
is still going on. Our mistakes
definitely hurt us."
Venice was limited to just four
hits and was held hitless in five
of seven innings by Riverview
senior pitcher Corinne Jenkins.
However, the Lady Indians,
who fell behind 2-0, didn't quit.
Down by two runs, Venice
picked up its second hit of the
game and the first since the
second batter of the first inning
as Jenkins sat down 15 straight
batters.
"She was OK," said Sosnowski
about Jenkins. "She wasn't any-
thing like the greatest thing in
the world. Nothing against her.
She was throwing strikes. We
were swinging the bats so hard
that if it would have flown out of
their hands it would been like a
helicopter blade and would have
landed in the next county. We
are so intent on hitting the ball
hard instead of trying to make
contact."
In the bottom of the sixth
inning, Venice's Liz Walters broke
the string by lining a single into
right-center field. After stealing

second base, Carly Rosa singled
between shortstop and third
base to score Walters with the
Lady Indians' run. Rosa was
called out trying to stretch her
hit into a double. Amber Yonker
walked and went to third on a
double by Kelly Ott, whose high


fly ball dropped behind second
base. With runners at second
and third base, a line out to right
field ended the inning.
Riverview added an insurance
run in the top of the seventh
inning with a double and throw-
ing error.


Venice pitcher Emalee Sands delivers a
strike against Riverview on Tuesday at
Venice High. Sands tossed a complete
game as the Lady Rams notched a 3-1
season-opening victory.

Venice still had chances in the
bottom of the seventh inning.
With one out, Rachel Kowalc-
zyk and Taylor Baker reached on
errors by third baseman and first
baseman.
After a strikeout, Walters
walked to load the bases.
However, the Lady Rams
ended the game on a force out at
third base.
"I'm happy that we didn't give
up," said Sosnowski. "Happy that
we keep coming back and fight-
ing in the end. At the same time,
there are certain things that will
drive a coach nuts and they are
making easy mistakes."

WRESTLING CLASS 2A-DISTRICT 11 TOURNAMENT



Ullrich wins district; Indians finish runner-up


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

Venice's Larsen Ullrich
is starting to make a habit
of winning tournaments.
After collecting his first
individual bout tourna-
ment title last week to
end the regular season,
Ullrich followed it up
with the Indians' only
district championship
to pace Venice to the
second-place trophy in
the Class 2A-District 11
Tournament on Saturday
at Port Charlotte High.
Ullrich is one of nine
Indians who qualified
for the Class 2A-Region 3
Tournament, which is
Friday and Saturday at
Charlotte High in Punta
Gorda.
"I don't think we could
have wrestled any better,"
said Venice coach Dan
Kelly. "All day long we
only lost two matches
that we should have won.
It's pretty good. My young
kids did an outstanding
job and got in the finals."
The top four wrestlers
in each weight class
advance to regionals.
Venice advanced six
into the championship
finals but Ullrich was the
only Indian who came
away with a first-place
trophy, in the 145-pound
weight class.
The Indians grabbed
five second-place fin-
ishes, one third place and
two fourths in scoring
194.5 points. Charlotte,

a distant third with 124
points.
"We had some rough
matches in the finals,"
said Kelly. "It was kind
of expected but none of
them backed down. Every
match in the finals we
wrestled to the potential
that we had. We definitely
gave our opponents a

happy with second place.

Through two periods
neither wrestler scored a
point.
In the third period,
with Ullrich starting in
the down position, Henry
let him up for an escape
at the beginning to give
the senior a 1-0 lead.
The rest of the two-
minute period was spent
trying to stay away from
a takedown.
"I was actually looking
forward to an escape,"
said Ullrich. "I was like,
'Crap, he let me up.'
I was hoping to get a
reversal and stick him
on his back. I was real
cautious of him getting a
takedown. That was the
longest two minutes I've
had in a very long time."
"We just didn't make
bad shots," said Kelly.
"Last time he wrestled
him Larsen made a
couple of poor shots. Kid
scored one time with a
quick spin. We really just
tried to limit our poor
choices and make good
choices. I really thought
the kid would come after
him in the third (period)
but he never did. A good
championship for him.
He's worked hard."
Placing second for the
Indians were Zach Kelly
(106 pounds), Bryce Bals-
inger (120), CJ Trammell
(138), Garrett Johnson
(195) and Quinton

number."
At 106 pounds, fresh-
man Kelly (23-5) took on
Charlotte senior Byron
Rhodes for the third time
this season.
Rhodes (35-2) used
five takedowns to notch
a 14-4 major decision to
hand Kelly his fifth loss
of the season, including
three to Rhodes.
"I thought he did a
great job," said Kelly
about his son. "We tried
to wrestle him different
all three times. This time
we came with something
big and nearly he caught
him twice (on his back)
but got outmuscled and
it didn't work out. Maybe
next time."
Balsinger, a freshman,


hung tough with
unbeaten Brandon
Gacad of Ida Baker, state
runner-up at 112 pounds
last year, but dropped a
10-1 major decision.
Gacad (27-0) led 5-0
after one period and 7-0
after two periods.
"I think Bryce Bals-
inger did an outstanding
job wrestling Gacad,"
said Kelly. "He got beat
solid again but gave him
a run for the money and
made him work for it."
Trammell (27-16), a
sophomore, moved up to
138 pounds, and gave up
eight takedowns to fall to
Charlotte senior Aiden
Collins (27-9), 18-7.
"He wrestled outstand-
ing today," said Kelly.


"That semifinal match
(against Ida Baker's
Deven Dilbeck) was a
great match. One of the
best matches he wrestled
all year."
In the semifinal, Tram-
mell scored a pin with 15
second left.
"The Charlotte wres-
tler was too good on his
takedowns for CJ," said
Kelly. "He was wrestling
132 (pounds) all year
so he's not a very big
138-pounder. That is
where we needed him to
be. Worked out well."
In one of the most
anticipated finals, John-
son battled Charlotte's
Davion Stuarts, who
placed second in state
last year.


It was a rematch of
their dual match on
Jan. 25.
In that match, Johnson
(30-6) handed Stuarts
only his loss of the
season on a last-second
takedown, 10-8.
In the first period on
Saturday, Stuarts got
a quick takedown but
Johnson scored a take-
down with two seconds
left in the first period
for a 3-2 lead. An escape
at the start of the sec-
ond period put Johnson
ahead, 4-2.
However, Stuarts out-
scored Johnson 7-1 the
rest of the match with
three takedowns and an
escape for a 9-5 decision.
"We worked on a lot
of stuff for Garrett to
wrestle that kid," said
Kelly. "We really thought
he would be attacking his
right leg and he didn't.
He obviously was work-
ing on some stuff too.
You cannot beat that kid
by sitting and waiting.
You can't stop that shot.
You have to go after him.
He waited too long. Just
didn't work out. That's
OK. We will wrestle him
differently next time.
We will work on some
things."
In the 285-pound final,
O'Brien, a junior who
only weighs 217 pounds,
fell to Charlotte's Cody
Waldrop, who weighs 260
pounds, 6-0. Waldrop
used two takedowns and
reversal for the decision.
"Outstanding," said
Kelly. "What a great job
by Quinton. He puts
on 30 to 40 pounds of
muscle over the summer,
that would be great."
Venice junior Tommy
Carello took third place
at 220 pounds while
senior Matt Parker (113


pounds) and Jacob
Stubbs (152) grabbed
the final qualifying
spots with fourth-place
finishes.

PHOTOS COURTESY OF THE COLLINS FOUNDATION
Two of the most famous World War II planes will visit Venice this weekend. Above is the B-17 Flying Fortress in the background with the Consolidated B-24 Liberator in the foreground. The planes
will be in Venice from 2 p.m. Friday through noon on Monday.




Winging it


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Few aeronautical expe-
riences can compare to
flying into Venice aboard
a Consolidated B-24
Liberator or Boeing B-17
Flying Fortress.
For take-off and land-
ing you're strapped in -
on the floor. But during
the flight you can pre-
tend to be like Snoopy's
Red Baron, flying low
over the coastline.
It is easy to pick out
West Venice Avenue
and such landmarks as
Venice Theatre or the
"hyperbolic parabaloid,"
otherwise known as the
beach pavilion at Venice
Beach. Always in the
background is the steady
drone of the four engines
as the pilot makes
his way to the Venice
Municipal Airport.
I was aboard the B-24
a few years ago on its
flight from Page Field in
Lee County to Venice for
the Collings Foundation's
Wings of Freedom tour,
which comes annually
to Venice Municipal
Airport.
This year the historic
planes will be here over
the weekend, which
should give more people
the opportunity to see
them. And, once again,
the two big bombers
will be accompanied by
a North American P-51
Mustang, similar to the
Mustangs used in Venice
during World War II
when the airport was an
Army Air Base. This Mus-
tang is unique however.

This North American P-51
Mustang will fly into Venice
Friday for the annual Wings of
Freedom Tour sponsored by the
Collings Foundation.


It is thought to be the
world's only dual-control
Mustang.
A quick search of P-51
Mustangs offered for sale
on the Internet showed
prices ranging from
$750,000 to $2,200,000
for authentic planes in
various stages of restora-
tion and P-51 replicas for
$350,000. None of these
was identified as having
dual controls.


The one flying into
Venice is No. 42-103293,
known as "Betty Jane."
Built in Dallas, it was
restored to mint condi-
tion from 2000 to 2004,
when it was rebuilt as a
two-seat model. During
the war such a model
offered ground crews a
chance to fly, according
to information about
this plane sent from the
Collings Foundation.


Gen. Dwight Eisenhower
is said to have ridden in
the back seat of such a
plane on D-Day in order
to direct the Invasion of
Normandy.
The Collings' plane
was named "Betty Jane"
in honor of Col. Charles
M. McCorkle, who led
the 31st Fighter Group
that was based in Algeria,
Tunisia, Sicily and Italy.
The group is credited

Praise be for'Altar Boyz'


HOlOU UUUK I sy UOI VENICE I HHEAIl K


Nidal Zarour, left, as Abraham; Dick Baker as Matthew; Albert
J. Jennings as Juan; Bradley Vile as Mark; and Matty Colonna as
Luke in "Altar Boyz" at Venice Theatre through March 4 on the
Pinkerton stage.


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
"Altar Boyz" fills the
Yvonne T. Pinkerton
Theatre at Venice Theatre
with feel-good energy.
Matthew (Dick Baker),
Mark (BradleyVile) Luke
(Matty Colonna), Juan
(Albert J. Jennings) and
Abraham (Nidal Zarour)
are in town with their
"Raise the Praise Tour."
They even have a meter
to record their success
with the audience.
Judging by the Friday
night audience and its
applause and cheers, they
did not need the meter.
From the first number,
"Book I: In the Beginning
... We Are the Altar Boyz,"


four Catholics and one
Jewish kid had the audi-
ence in the palm of their
collective hands and
singing their praises.
Director/choreogra-
pher Stephen Flaa said
he used the choreogra-
phy from the original
off-Broadway show.
Fortunately, he had such
a strong cast that they all
could do it, headstands,
somersaults and more.
Think boy bands, hip-
hop and even a bit of
such long-ago groups as
the Mills Brothers, or the
Commodores, who even
choreographed their
hand and arm motions.
The bonus with this
show is the five guys
work well together but


also can be stars in their
own right, with charm to
spare.

Bill Jervey: Lord-Higel House benefactor


By BARBARA AND BOB DEIN
SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER

The Lord-Higel House
is being preserved and
restored by a group of
volunteers, the Friends
of the Lord-Higel House.
Their efforts recently
got a big boost by a new
benefactor and civic-
minded friend, Bill Jervey
Jr., Ph.D.
For the entire year of
2012 Jervey will match
all monetary donations
raised by Friends of
the Lord-Higel House,
dollar-for-dollar, up to a
maximum of $25,000. A
good friend indeed.
The son of an Federal
Aviation Administration
official and a housewife,
Jervey brings a wealth of
experience gathered over
a lifetime, from Wash-
ington, D.C., where he

potato latkes and brisket
platters, more volunteers

teer coordinator Bill
Hershkowitz said.
The annual festival
opens at 9 a.m. at the
center, 600 North Auburn
Road, offVenice Avenue.
Volunteers are needed
throughout the day and
primarily will be inside
the air-conditioned
building, although


some assistance may be table of homemade pas-


needed outside.
"It takes 140 volun-
teers," Hershkowitz said.
In addition to serving
hundreds of corned beef
and pastrami sandwiches
plus thousands of potato
latkes, this year's festival
will feature brisket plates
consisting of brisket
slices with gravy, cole
slaw and two potato
latkes. There also are


tries, homemade soup
and other ethnic treats
for sale.
Outside, there will be
a variety of continuous
entertainment including
a Jewish Klezmer band,
Klezmania, and many
vendors plus representa-
tives of political clubs and
other civic organizations.
To help, call Hershkowitz
at 941-587-6011.

WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

6A754 K J92 0AK Q 646A

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

A You have the values to bid game,
but no guarantee that notrump is the
best spot. However, there is no
sensible way to investigate without
possibly missing the best spot, so bid
three no trump and hope partner has
the right cards.

Q 2 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

SQ 9 5 7 3 0 K Q 9 6 5 4 A 7 3


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
1A Pass 20
2NT Pass ?
What do you bid now?


WEST
Pass


A You certainly want to be in game,
but which one? Bid three spades and
let partner decide whether his holding
is better for no trump or spades.

Q 3 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

SK 10 6 5 2 70 K 9 8 7 5J9


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
1I Pass 16
1NT Pass ?
What action do you take?


WEST
Pass


A This hand has all the makings of
a misfit. Any action you take now
could get you into trouble, so pass
and see what develops.

Q 4 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

AAKQ9542V73 0 6 AJ 10


Your right-hand opponent opens the
bidding with one heart. What do you
bid now?

A You have a hand with 8-plus
playing tricks and reasonable
defense. That makes it too good for a
jump to four spades, which is a pre-
emptive action. Double first, then
jump to game over any bid by
partner.

Q 5 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

6 Q 6 4 3 9 4 0J6 K10 9 3 2

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

A You do not have much, but you do
hold the top-ranked suit. Bid one
spade. If this is your hand, it is almost
surely going to be in spades, so why
not tell partner of that right away?

Q 6 East-West vulnerable, as South
you hold:

7 4 0 K Q 10 9 3 AJ 7 6 4 3

The bidding has proceeded:
WEST NORTH EAST SOUTH
14 Pass 36 ?
What do you bid now?

A The hand does not belong to you,
but you should have a cheap save in
partner's better minor. Ask partner to
bid it while making it as difficult for
the opponents to find out what the
limit of their combined holding is.
Jump to four no trump, asking
partner to bid his longer minor.

According to the Insurance Institute for
Highway Safety, approximately two
million whiplash claims are filed
annually. Neck injuries are the most
commonly reported crash-related injury.
In particular, whiplash injuries result
from the rapid snapping back of a
person's head during a collision. These
injuries, which can occur at crash speeds


as low as ten miles per hour, hyperextend
the neck and damage nerves and
ligaments, often resulting in pain and lack
of mobility. The best way to prevent a
whiplash injury is to position your
vehicle's head restraint so that the top of
your ear horizontally aligns with a point
in the middle of the head restraint, no
more than three inches away from the
back of your head.

Just listen.
Among the 4,689 reason to
love Venice are its musicians.
All around town the strains
or words of a song bring back
wonderful memories of a special
something or someone. Whether
it's remembering dancing to the
big-band sounds, enjoying a
rock 'n' roll concert or watching
Madonna during Super Bowl
halftime, music makes the heart
sing. I will always love Barry
Manilow.

The Venice Symphony
"Welcome to what I hope is
a magical evening," Maestro
Kenneth Bowermeister said
in greeting the audience at the
Church of the Nazarene. It was.
Music from "Phantom of the


Opera," "Beauty and the Beast"
and "Swan Lake" made the
audience smile and offer several
standing ovations.
At the most recent concert
pianist Young-Ah Tak charmed
the audience with her music.
Most concerts are sold out,
for who among us can resist one
more enchanted evening in our
lives?


The Venice
Concert Band
"It was the best concert ever,"
said Mary Proper, describing
the Venice Concert Band's Janu-
ary concert.
"The musicians seemed like
they were on fire," Betty Beuter
recounted.
Band Director Bill Millner in-
cluded audience favorite Sarah
Rideout Slight in the concert.
Joe Russo brought the audience
to its feet with his alto sax solo
performing "Beautiful Colo-
rado." Rick Louis, Chris Chiodo
and Brent Campos raised the
roof playing "Bugler's Holiday."
The audience refused to al-
low pianist Dr. Michael Baron
to leave the stage. He played
"L'Union" and, as an encore,
"Malaguena."


The next concert is on Feb. 27.

Love it
Bravo to whoever chose the
soft blue and yellow colors for
the Venice water tower. They
produce their own melody of
love.

love him for his skills and they

In addition to being a physi-

Venice welcomes

airplanes and 'Altar Boyz'
'A Itar Boyz" continues at Venice Theatre where it opened last
week in the Yvonne T Pinkerton Theatre, home of Stage
II and Cabaret productions. It continues through March
4 but get your tickets early because there are just 90 seats in the
Pinkerton venue which sold out every seat for tis previous produc-
tion, "Almost, Maine"
Friday, if you see an old World War II Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress
or a Consolidated B-24 Liberator flying low along the coast, you are
not seeing things, These two big hulking WWII vintage planes
and a North American P-51 Mustang will fly into Venice
Municipal Airport Friday at about noon for the annual
Collings Foundation's Wings of Freedom Tour. The Mustang is a
sister ship to the fleet of Mustangs used for training
pilots in Venice for World War II duty. The one coming to Venice
is considered the world's only one with a second seat.
For fees ranging upward from $425 per person, flights
are available aboard all three planes.You should be fairly
agile for the flights and willing to sit on the floor of the
larger planes. But, not to worry for that is where the seat belts
are. I was able to ride along on the B-24 on its way to
Venice a couple of years ago and still cherish the experience,
especially the views along the way. Also learned a lot
because Dante Altieri, whose parents Sam and Mike own
Luna Ristorante in Venice, was also on board and shared
plenty of information about the planes.
See the planes and take a walk-through for $12 for adults
and $6 for children 12 and under from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Friday,
from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday and from 9 a.m. until
noon Monday at the airport in Venice.

Busch Gardens opens Iceploration


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Not only did Florida send two ice skating
teams to the latest Winter Olympics but
now there is a new ice show at Busch
Gardens Tampa Bay.
More than a sequel to its World Rhythms
on Ice, Iceploration is being billed as the "next
generation of ice shows."
Twenty skaters donning more than 75 different
and often unusual costumes, augmented with
puppetry, live animals and aerial antics offer a
show that is thrilling as well as literally chilling in
the Moroccan Palace.
Skaters dressed as cheetahs and gazelles
echo a theme found nearby where the popular
Cheetah Run coaster opened last year and
where live cheetahs can be seen growing up right
before the eyes of regular park visitors.
In 30 minutes, guests to Iceploration travel to
the four corners of the globe with the skaters and
their fellow stars, some of the four-legged variety.
Even the music is new, developed especially
for the production. Gregg Barnes, who won Tony
Awards in 2007 for the costumes in "The Drowsy
Chaperone" and "Legally Blonde, the Musical,' cre-
ated the stunning costumes which include gazelles,
cheetahs and elephants from Africa as well as
creatures of the deep from the Great Barrier Reef,
among some of the places visited in the show.
The story line involves a young boy and his
grandfather who visit the areas mentioned above


A Mandarin fish performs a solo number in the
Great Barrier Reef portion of Iceploration at
Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.
plus the Amazon rainforest and even the Arctic,
which is the one place that really does have ice.
Larger-than-life-sized puppets and special light-
ing effects add magical touches to the ice show
which features several fine area skaters.
Real animals in the show include Siberian
huskies and a Siberian lynx.
Also new at Busch Gardens (as of Dec. 27)
is a reticulated giraffe born to Jafari and Tesa.

State fair more than elephant ears, thrill rides


BY JOHN HACKWORTH
MANAGING EDITOR
Let's face it. When fair season rolls around,
you pretty much know what to expect.
There will be rides, fried food, sideshows
and crafts.
But, the people who run the Florida State
Fair are not content to just roll out the same
show each year and the 2012 edition of one
of the country's largest state fairs, which begins
Thursday and runs through Feb. 20, is certainly
no exception.
If you make the drive to the state fairgrounds
in Tampa you can not only expect to see top-
notch entertainment and rides galore not to
mention tons of diet-busting food but there
are some new twists this year. Tops among the
new attractions is a zip line ride that will take
participants across the lake and high above
the fair crowds.
Fair officials say they are the first state fair
to offer the zip line ride which takes you on a
700-foot thrill ride across the fairgrounds' lake
from north to south. That ride, take note, is not
part of the fair package that is included in the arm
bands. It will cost you a separate ticket.
Zip lining is not the only new attraction, ac-
cording to Rip Stalvey, director of marketing and

Food is a big draw, along with entertainment
and rides, at the Florida State Fair, which opens
Thursday and runs through Feb. 20 at the state
fairgrounds in Tampa.
museum operations.
The last weekend of the show, Feb. 18-19, the
fair will offer lawn mower racing, and it is not your
mother's lawn mower you'll be seeing.
"It is quite popular in the Midwest," Stalvey
said. "One of the racing teams includes three
generations of a family. Some of these lawn mow-
ers can get up to 40 or 45 miles per hour."
The lawn mower racing is scheduled for the
Grand Prix equestrian ring.
Other highlights of this year's fair include:


Leroy Van Dyke's Country Gold Tour on Feb.
15 in the Sweetbay Entertainment Hall. Van Dyke,
Lynn Anderson, Janie Frickie, Gene Watson and
T. G. Sheppard will perform their hits at noon and
4 p.m.There is an extra $10 charge for admission
to this show.
The Xtreme Sports Show. Skateboarders and
BMX riders show off their high-flying skills three
times a day.
An Elvis Extravaganza Impersonator National
Finals Saturday and Sunday, at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.
*Yesterdaze, a'70s music group will showcase
their skills Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m.,
3 p.m. and 6 p.m.
*The Blues Brothers will perform daily at noon,
3 p.m. and 7 p.m. with an added 8 p.m. show on
Friday and again Feb. 18.
*The Paul Bunyan Lumberjack Show is sched-
uled each day.
*The Florida Ranch Rodeo is schedule Feb.
15 and 16 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. in the Charlie

'Music Man' opens to sell-out audience


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Tickets to opening night of Venice Theatre's
mainstage production of "The Music Man"
were all but gone two weeks before open-
ing night.
There were but a few seats left in the back row
of the balcony.
Given a season with such fabulous shows as
the fall production of "Big River" and "Smokey
Joe's Cafe" which packed the house nightly in
January, it is no surprise that Venice Theatre fans
are rushing to the box office for the next musical.
'The Music Man" opens Tuesday for a four-
week run ending March 11, with performances at
8 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and matinees at
2 p.m. each Sunday.
One of the most popular musicals in Broad-
way history, 'The Music Man" tells the story
of events in little River City, Iowa after the
arrival of Harold Hill (Douglas Landin) who
convinces residents to buy musical instru-
ments for their sons and to create a boys'
band. Since he plans to skip town with the
money for the musical instruments, it mat-
ters not that he knows nothing about music
- until he falls for Marian Paroo, the local
librarian (Laurie Colton). Hill was originally por-
trayed on Broadway and in the movie by Robert
Preston.
Others in the cast include Kim Kollar as Eulalie
MacKecknie Shinn, Ken Fromer as Mayor Shin,
Travis Rose as Charlie Cowell, Kevin Sario as
conductor/constable, Tank Martin as Marcel-
lus Washburn, Zachary Evanicki as Tommy
Djilas, Dawn Hale as Mrs. Paroo, Nathan Oss/
ZacharyYounts as Winthrop Paroo, Laura
Teyke as Amaryllis, Samantha Calandra as


Gracie Shinn and Natasha Turner as Zanceta
Shinn. Making up the quartet are Jim Lovett,
Keith Brayman, Thomas St. Amand and Derek
Dutcher. Carolyn Laibach, Pinky Stewart, Zena
Brown and Linda Mangold are the Pick-a-Little
Ladies. The Townspeople are portrayed by Me-
gan Bartek, Julia King, Noelle Oxboel, Elicia
Sacco, Vivienne Teyke, Charlie Kollar, Nicholas
Pokorny, Jacob Pokorny, Andy Sulesky, Michael
Burke, Timothy Polk, Casey Berkery Hoyt Corns
and Alexia King
The book, music and lyrics were all written by
the late Meredith Willson. Seldom in the history
of Broadway does one person do it all. Even less
often does such a one-person effort garner as
many awards.
"I didn't have to make anything up for 'The Mu-
sic Man.' All I had to do was remember," Willson,
an Iowa native, was quoted in a press release
from the theater.
"The Music Man" was directed by Ron Ziegler
who also is from Iowa. Choreography is by
Michelle Teyke with musical direction by Adam
Patrick Moore. Dennis Maulden is the scenery
designer with technical direction by John Andzu-
liz, costumes by Nicholas Hartman and lighting
by David Casteneda.
Memorable songs from the show include" "Till
There WasYou" and "Goodnight My Someone."
Venice Theatre is at 140 W.Tampa Ave., on the
island in downtown Venice. Tickets are $12-$15
for students and $24-$27 for adults, depending
on day and time of performance.
Visit www.venicestage.com or call the box
office at 941-488-1115. The box office is open
during daytime business hours and from 10
a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday plus one hour before all
performances.

Day memories


Fi Knights who met his sweetheart of
three years through her parents, took
her to Busch Gardens for their first Val-
entine's Day. "Enjoying her company
was the best part of Valentine's Day for
me. 11,. l,.r iI\ra ride has a 90 degree
drop and it made my heart jump but not
as much as she does."


Biker Rennie Ballagh tells a
valentine story from 2009. "I
got a call on Valentine's Day
from Helen Root who had seen
my name in the paper after
winning a bike race in the
area. My wife had passed in
1992 and I had been alone ever
since. That call changed my
life. We have been a number
ever since."

Valentine's Day memories


Rebecca Kepner: "Each year
we rotate who plans the day,
my turn is this year Last year
I took Daniel (husband) to the
Four Seasons in Punta Corda.
I had decorated the room with
rose petals previous to arriving.
We first went to dinner, then
took a walk, when he gave me
blue sapphire earrings and a
matching ring then at Christ-
mas he gave me the matching
necklace. He is the true ro-
mantic, can't wait for this year,
it's Daniel's turn to make the
valentine plans."


Natalie Kiselev, 16, "Last year
I was surprised at school (Port
Charlotte High) with red roses,
candy and a big stuffed bear
from a male friend who then
asked me to be his girlfriend.
11I,. shock was that he had told
me his mother had wanted him to
give a valentine present to her best
friend's daughter So I was defi-
nately not expecting anything." He
has since become an ex-boyfirend.
"But I will never forget my first
real Valentine's Day.

EL G!C-. February 8-14, 2012


'Cats' arrives al
PROVIDED BY THE VAN WEZEL PERFORMING
ARTS HALL
C ats" arrives at the Van Wezel Performing
Arts Hall at 8 p.m. Friday and at 2 p.m.
Sand 8 p.m. Saturday.
This national tour is the only production in
North America sanctioned by Andrew Lloyd Web-
ber. With original direction by Trevor Nunn and
choreography by Gillian Lynne, this is the "Cats"
credited with the British invasion of Broadway.
"Cats" celebrated its 30th anniversary on May
11, 2011, holding its place as the longest continu-
ously touring Broadway musical in history New
for the 2011-2012 season will be the reintroduc-
tion of "psychic twins" Coricopat and Tantomile.
These mystical cats, who are always in sync,
were last seen in the Broadway production.
Where one goes, the other follows.
Based on TS. Eliot's "Old Possum's Book of
Practical Cats" and with music by Andrew Lloyd
Webber, "Cats" won seven 1983 Tony Awards
including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical,


the Van Wezel
Best Lighting and Best Costumes. On May 11,
1981, "Cats" opened at the New London Theatre
in the West End. Eight years later, it celebrated
its first important milestone: after 3,358 per-
formances "Cats" became the longest running
musical in the history of British theatre. "Cats"
played its final performance on its 21st birthday,
May 11, 2002. "Cats" opened on Broadway on
Oct. 7, 1982 at the Winter Garden Theatre in New
York City and continued to live up to its motto
"Now and Forever'" On June 19, 1997, it became
the longest running musical on Broadway. "Cats"
ended its 18 year run on Sept. 10, 2000 with
7,485 performances. In October of 1991, "Cats"
became the longest continuously touring show
in American theatre history Five continents,
26 countries, and over eight and a half million
audience members later, "Cats" is still America's
most loved family musical. Celebrating not only
its Broadway touring legacy but the birth of the
musical spectacular, "Cats" is still revolutionary
and awe inspiring.


"Cats" arrives at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall at 8 p.m. Friday and at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Saturday.

Bello takes 'hanging around' to the limit


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Feb. 2, Bello Nock was swinging through the
air with the greatest of ease on a trapeze
suspended from a helicopter 500 feet
above the big red and white Circus Sarasota tent.
He left the ground about 12:06 p.m. and by 12:09
he was hanging by one foot as the copter flew
over the tent for one of many passes.
Beginning Friday, the man who has been called
a "one-man circus" and may well be one of the all-
time greatest circus dare devils in history will star
in Circus Sarasota's 2012 24-performance run.
"Go out and tell a friend how good the show
will be," Bello said after his trapeze stunt. "We're
gonna top that! BelloMania may be named after
one crazy guy but there are performers from all
over the world here."
He won't be hanging upside down beneath a fly-
ing helicopter without a net, but what he will do inside


that tent is likely to be equally death defying.
Also appearing in this year's edition of Circus
Sarasota are Heidi Herriott (dressage horse act),
Alesya Goulevitch (Hula hoop act), Shandong
Acrobatic Troupe of the Big Apple Circus (jump
roping & Risley), Johnny Peers (comedy dogs).
Encho Keryazov (hand balancing) and Jacobs
withYuri Rjiskov on aerial straps.
Circus Sarasota performs in the big red and
white tent at 12th Street and Tuttle Avenue, op-
posite the Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota.
The opening night show begins at 7 p.m.
Friday. There are matinees each Wednesday and
Saturday at 2 p.m., Sunday matinees are at 1
p.m. and there are twilight shows Sundays at 5
p.m. and the same schedule on Feb. 20. There is
no show on Feb. 13.Tickets range from $10-$48.
Opening weekend tickets are $10 and $20 plus tax.
For tickets, visit www.circussarasota.org, call
941-355-9805 or visit the box office outside the tent.

Comedian Greg Morton returns to Visani


PROVIDED BY VISANI COMEDY DINNER THEATER
The hysterical Canadian born comedian
Greg Morton is coming to Port Charlotte
Tuesday through Feb. 18.
Morton was voted Visani's favorite new co-
median in 2011. His anxiety-ridden persona
is best described as someone who watches
too much CNN.
Morton made his second appearance at Mon-
treal's Just For Laugh's Festival in 2004, and he's ap-
peared on BBC America, CBC and Comedy Central.
Morton is a regular on'The Bob and Tom" show. His
material is adult clean with minimal profanity. Mortons
standup show is an amazing variety of comedy facial
expressions, voice impressions and lots of weird stuff.
His comedy bit"hurricane m*"' is a true classic that Fbrt
Charlotte hurricane survivors can truly relate to.

BY CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Who was Elsie Quirk? Why was a
library in Englewood named for her?
The public is invited to earn all about
Elsie Quirk Library history at a special musical
program at 2 p.m. Thursday.
The "Elsie Quirk Library "In Tune with the
Times" program will take place during the Lemon
Bay Fest, History with Zest, which runs through
Saturday. A calendar of events celebrating
Englewood history can be found at
www.lemonbayfest.com.
The "In Tune with the Times" program will
begin with everyone singing "The Star Spangled
Banner." Helen Wikoff, last year's Volunteer Star
Award winner, will introduce Musical Director
Angie Zerad, Narrator Marlene Demetriou and
singers Chris Kourapis, Jim Snelgrove, Charley
Lindberg, Michele Strickland, Betty Bullock,
Ruth Jameson, Gene Marley, Paul Hyatt and
Dean Wise.
Zerad, a musician and former Friends of the
Elsie Quirk Library board member, has written
amusing lyrics to familiar tunes that describe
the library's early history up to the present day.


She will provide piano accompaniment for a
chorus of nine members who will sing about
library history. Demetriou, a long-time
resident of Lemon Bay Isles and a past
Follies director, will explain how the library
evolved from a tiny one-room building facing
Cocoanut Avenue to a large, modern facility
on historic Dearborn Street. Victor Lorand,
Information Services Librarian, has prepared
a presentation for the audience to enjoy
during the performance. The Friends' Program
chairman, Pat Burkey, assisted by Tom and
Suki Swepston, Betty Bullock and Mary Jane
Williams will serve refreshments at a reception
following the show.
The Friends of the Elsie Quirk Library have
planned a number of events for 2012. Historic
memorabilia is on display at the library, and a
50-question trivia contest is underway. Partici-
pants are offered an opportunity to win a variety
of prizes donated by local merchants and copies
of the Lemon Bay Historical Society's book
"Englewood Then and Now Volume 1.' Contest
information is available at the library.
On June 16, exactly 50 years after the dedica-
tion of the original one room library, the Friends

The Crow's Nest: Waterfront dining on Venice Island


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
It's funny how much fate plays a part in the
way history plays out. If Steve Harner had
not decided in the '70s to abandon the cold
Detroit winters and move down to sunny Florida,
and initially had such a small budget to work with,
the Venice area would have been deprived of one
of the most charming restaurants in town.
"I came down here with a plan to open a
restaurant," Harner said. "We looked from Braden-
ton to Englewood for something we could afford."
What they discovered was a tiny little 40 seat
space for lease above a marina office on a little
sliver of land on Venice Island. Though the view
was scenic, the space needed quite a bit of work
before it could be used, but finally in 1979 The
Crow's Nest was born.
"In the early days it was much more casual,"
said Harner. "We served burgers, fried shrimp
and such. We stayed that small size until 1981,
and that's when we expanded."The expansion
included the purchase of not only the restaurant
space, but the marina as well.
Today The Crow's Nest Restaurant, Marina
& Tavern consists of 700 feet of seawall and
30 marina slips. They also sell fuel and have
overnight facilities for boaters. But the restaurant
growth has not only been in regard to the size, it
has also been in the expansion of the menu and
wine selections.
"The focus here has always been on seafood,"
said Harner. "In the late '80s, we started focusing
more on wine. At this point we have the best wine


selection south of Tampa on the Gulf coast.'That
extensive wine list earned The Crow's Nest a
Wine Spectator award in 2010.
Having been on Venice Island for so many
years has earned the restaurant legions of loyal
customers and a consistent employee base. We
now have about 85 employees, several who have
been with us over 20 years,' said Harner. "Then
there are quite a few who have been here more
than 10 years. It's like a family."
Actually, it's more like a family who prepares
delicious food for you when you go to their house.
"We have two signature items we serve for din-
ner,' said Harner. "One we've had on the menu
since the late '80s-it's filet mignon with Gunther
sauce."
The story behind that particular menu item
is an interesting one. "This was one of Gunther
Gabel-Williams' (the famous lion tamer) favorite
restaurants," Harner said, "and he had his farewell
tour in 1987. The Ringling Circus came to us and
wanted to surprise him with a new menu item, so
this is what we came up with. The sauce is from
a recipe he made during an appearance on 'The
Today Show.'" Gunther's sauce is Worcestershire/
scotch-based.
"The other signature item is our Grouper Key
Largo,"' said Harner. "Grouper is far and away our
best-selling menu item."This dinner entr6e is
pan-seared grouper topped with lobster, shrimp,
scallops, mushrooms and hollandaise sauce and
served over rice.
One of the unique things about The Crow's
Nest is that it is an upscale restaurant that also

Big band music and dancing with the Royal Aires


BY CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
On any given Thursday at 10 a.m. to noon
at the Englewood Elks Club, 40 or more
couples waltz, polka, cha-cha or jitterbug
to the big band sound of the Royal Aires. For
eight years, the 15-piece orchestra, led by Jack
Demmink, has drawn an audience of at least 80
people who love to reminisce to songs from the
'30s and '40s.
According to Demmink, "Music is what
changes the age factor. If you are around people
who are having fun, you are happy and the audi-
ence is happy." Demmink, 91, has succeeded in
his mission. Happy couples begin dancing at 10
a.m. and most only stop for a short 15 minute
break during the morning session.
The 40 or so non-dancers tap their toes and
fingers to the beat while seated at large round
tables surrounding the huge dance floor. Dem-
mink's sister, Helen Shoberg, visits Demmink ev-


ery winter and never misses a Thursday session.
Dolly Fetcko calls herself the group's "mascot."
Fetcko never misses a Thursday show.
Fetcko notes that, "It's hard to believe, but
many dancers have artificial joints and glide
along beautifully." Native Floridian and retired
nurse, Luanne Davis and her husband Gale
dance non-stop and are never out of breath. All
seem to agree that The Royal Aires reach out to
people who can reminisce and relive their youth.
In some cases friendships are made during
the Thursday shows at the Elks. After Hurricane
Charley, Port Charlotte residents Ruth Frost and
Joan Walsh relocated to Englewood, met at a
Royal Aires' show, and became regular fans.
Demmink began playing the trumpet in grade
school and has never stopped playing. For
years he traveled in a road band throughout the
Midwest and earned a living as a musician. Prior
to his playing at the Elks, the band played at the
Tangerine Woods Clubhouse in Englewood. Dem-


mink does not actively solicit business, but will
play for private parties occasionally. He enjoys
playing all the old favorites, but he is especially
fond of Frank Sinatra's songs. During intermis-
sion at the Elks he will often play the trumpet and
sing along with a small group. A typical group
might consist of bass, drums, piano, trombone,
sax, and trumpet. Not a moment goes by without
music at the Royal Aires morning show. Soloists
during the performances may include Bobby


Hartsell on trumpet, Karl Toenjes on bass and
Fried Herriott on drums. Clarice Dell-Anno, the
only lady performer, plays keyboard. She is well
known in Englewood as the director of the Fun
Chorus.
The Royal Aires play from 10 a.m. to noon
most Thursdays at the Englewood Elks,
401 N. Indiana Ave. All are welcome.
Donations are requested. For more information,
call 941-475-7820.

Whiskey Creek: The Pit Master


BY BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGER
LET'S GO CORRESPONDENT
ook, chef, executive chef, line cook, salad
prep, or sous chef. When you cook for a
restaurant, you can be called any number
of names. When you're in charge of cooking at
Whiskey Creek, however, you are unique. You
are the the Pit Master.
That's because at Whiskey Creek, steaks are
cooked to perfection over a wood fire grill stacked
with solid logs of oak and ash. Learning to cook
over the pit is both a science and an art, and
certainly a learning experience.
"First, you have to learn the 12 different
cuts of steak and be able to identify them by
size and shape," said General Manager and
Pit Master Rich Carmean. "Then you learn to
cook them over the pit to the desired tem-
perature. We don't stick each piece of meat to
test for doneness you learn to recognize the
temperature by touch. If it's soft to the touch
and springs back, it's more on the rare side.
If it's harder, it's more well done. When you
start out, you want to cut the meat open to see
if you're right, but when you do that you've ruined
the steak."
Carmean started out at Whiskey Creek in Port
Charlotte in 1996, working in the salad room or,
"at the bottom," he said. He moved up quickly,
filling in for other line cooks and learning each
job. Soon he became Pit Master and stayed until
after Hurricane Charley, when he left to try out
construction. He returned about a year later and


stepped back in as Pit Master. Now he assumes
that role at times in addition to his newer role as
general manager.
"Having experience as a Pit Master helps me
manage better when things get hectic," Carmean
explained. "It can get tense in the kitchen when
it's very busy. You have to learn to keep your cool
no matter what and move on.
Whiskey Creek is a steak and barbecue
restaurant that was started right here in Port
Charlotte in 1995 by Larry Terrell. In 1996,
the restaurant was bought by Jim Gardner
of Wild West, Inc. That same year Gardner
opened their first Midwest restaurant in
Kearney, Neb.
Through the years the company added
restaurants in other Nebraska cities as well
as Kansas, Indiana, South Dakota, Iowa,
Minnesota and Missouri. Their newest loca-
tion will open soon in Brookings, N.D.
Meanwhile, the Port Charlotte original is in
the midst of a total renovation, inside and out.
The work is done at night, though, so dining
is not disrupted. District Manager Dominic
Montavon said he expects the renovation to be
finished in March.
When a new location opens, trainer Jason
Coleman shows the Pit Master how to cook
the Whiskey Creek way, over the pit using their
proprietary spices, rubs and sauces. This as-
sures quality control so that, in every location -
from Port Charlotte to Grand Island, Nebraska
-- your steak will have the same Whiskey Creek

TO BE M!


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
My wife was diagnosed with
COPD. She is on medicines
and has been given lung
tests that confirm COPD. Is
there a cure? C.E
ANSWER: About 24 mil-
lion Americans suffer from
COPD, chronic obstructive
pulmonary disease. Half of
them have been diagnosed;
the other half have its signs
and symptoms but do not
have a medical diagnosis.
Two illnesses constitute
COPD: emphysema and
chronic bronchitis. The
two are almost always seen
together.
Emphysema is the
destruction of the lungs'
tiny air sacs, through which
oxygen passes into the
blood and carbon dioxide
leaves it. The main sign of
emphysema is shortness
of breath when doing any
kind of physical activity.
Chronic bronchitis is an
inflammation and plug-
ging of the airways (bron-
chi) with thick mucus.
Air has difficulty reaching
the lungs because of this
obstruction. Cough with
the expectoration of thick
sputum is the primary sign
of chronic bronchitis.
Cigarette smoking is
the No. 1 cause of COPD.
However, some people
have never put a cigarette
to their lips but have come
down with COPD. People
who have worked in places
where the air is full of
irritating dusts or fumes,
people who must breathe
air filled with pollutants,
and those with inherited
genes that make their lungs
susceptible to airborne
materials not destructive to
most people are ones who
develop COPD without
having smoked. Repeated
bouts of lung infections are
another cause.
A cure is not on hand.
Control of symptoms and
slowing the progression
of this illness are possible.
Medicines that dilate the
breathing tubes help air
reach the lung with greater
ease. Inhaled cortisone
drugs soothe inflamed
airways. And, when neces-
sary, supplemental oxygen
provides people with the
oxygen boost they need.
Your wife needs a yearly
flu shot to protect her lungs.
She must report respiratory
infections to her doctor so
she gets prompt treatment
to preserve lung function.
The booklet on COPD
provides more information.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I
am a 55-year-old man who
has suffered from blood
clots for the past three years.
I have been in the hospital
so many times that the
nurses know my name. I've
tried to change my eating
habits, but the clots still
form. I have an umbrella fil-
ter in my chest to stop clots
from reaching my lungs. My
doctor told me to go on a
vegetarian diet. Most places
are fast-food restaurants
and don't serve such food. I
need some advice. R.W.
ANSWER: Many fast-
food restaurants have sal-
ads. Or you can make your
own meals with grains,
vegetables and fruits. I'm
not sure why this kind of
diet has been stressed for
you. Is it for the clots? Are
you taking a blood thin-
ner (an anticoagulant), like
Coumadin? Recurrent clots
call for indefinite antico-
agulation. Have you been
investigated for some of the
inherited conditions that
favor clots? FactorV (Roman
numeral five) Leiden and
deficiencies of protein S
and C are examples of such
conditions.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
After years of suffering
from hip, back and knee
pain, I happened to read
on the Web that unequal
leg length can be the cause.
I put a quarter-inch liner
in my shoe on the short
side, and relief was instan-
taneous. I'm really disap-
pointed that medical pro-
viders had never checked
me for this. One doctor I
mentioned it to dismissed
it out of hand. My simple
solution saved me thou-
sands of dollars. R.R.
ANSWER: An inequality
of more than two-fifths of
an inch (1 cm) can lead to
the kind of pain you had.
The pain can occur on
the side of the shorter or
longer leg. A reliable mea-
surement has to take place
between the same land-
marks on both legs. The
two most used landmarks
are the anterior superior
iliac spine (just above the
hip and on the side) and
the medial malleolus, the
bony projection on the
inner side of the ankle. If
you can't locate these two
points, mark off two points
at the same place on both
legs. Your doctor can take a
more exact measurement.

Heloise's fudge recipe


Dear Heloise: I cannot
locate my Heloise fudge
recipe. Could you please
reprint it? I would ap-
preciate it very much! -
Renee B., via email
It's been a long time
since this Heloise favorite
recipe has been printed,
so I am happy to oblige,
Renee! To begin, gather
the following ingredients:
4 1/2 cups granulated
white sugar
1 (12 ounce) can evapo-
rated milk
3 (6 ounce) packages
chocolate chips
1 (10 ounce) package
mini-marshmallows
1/2 cup butter or mar-
garine (regular, not any
low-fat or diet type)
1 teaspoon vanilla
extract
2 cups chopped nuts
(optional)
Mix the sugar and milk
in a large, heavy saucepan.
Slowly bring the mixture
to a rolling boil, and let
boil for 7-8 minutes while
stirring CONSTANTLY.
Remove the pan from
the heat, then add the
chocolate chips, marshmal-
lows and butter. Mix only
until the chips and the
marshmallows are melted
(DON'T overmix). Next,
add the vanilla extract and
nuts (if using). Spread the
mixture in a large, 13-by-
9-inch ungreased pan. Let
cool, and then you can
enjoy this delicious fudge!

Freezing cookies
Dear Heloise: I freeze/
store my cookies in metal


Hints from Heloise

tins, which only allow for
one layer. So much space
in the tin is wasted, along
with space in the freezer.
Then I thought of this
idea: I use the three-legged
disc that you get in your
delivered pizza. (Its purpose
is to keep the box lid from
smashing into the pizza.) I
place two to four of these
discs between the cookies
on the bottom layer. I place
a piece of tinfoil- covered
cardboard, cut to the size of
the tin, on the discs and put
a second layer of cookies
on. The best part is that the
discs are free!
For round cookies (such
as buckeyes), I freeze
them on a cookie sheet,
then transfer to freezer
bags for storage. I.M.,
Newton Falls, Ohio

Cooking timer
Dear Heloise: I enjoy
reading your column
in The (Harrisburg, Pa.)
Patriot-News. I bought an
outdoor timer that you can
program for the hour you
want on/off to turn a slow
cooker into a smart one
that will turn on and off
when I want it to. Sue
W., New Bloomfield, Pa.

Man's ex-girlfriend has

warning for his fiancee


DEAR ABBY: My boy-
friend, "Brady," broke up
with me in November. Five
weeks later he became
engaged to someone else. I
found out after that I have
genital warts. My yearly
exams never showed any
problems before, so I know
I got them from Brady. I'm
getting treatment now, but
I'll be contagious for life.
I have been unable to tell
Brady about this because
he won't respond to my
attempts to contact him.
I'm now trying to decide
if I should tell his fiancee.
I know he wants children,
and this disease can have
some serious repercus-
sions if she gets pregnant.
Do I leave this woman in
the dark, or should I give
her the medical informa-
tion she and her doctors
should have? NEEDS TO
DO THE RIGHT THING IN
NEWYORK
DEAR NEEDS TO DO
THE RIGHT THING: Five
weeks into a relationship is
a whirlwind courtship, un-
less Brady was cheating on
you with his fiancee before
your breakup. If that's the
case, she may be the per-
son who infected Brady.
Since he won't respond
to you, send him a regis-
tered letter informing him
of your diagnosis, and any
other information about
genital warts you feel is
relevant. If you're worried
that the fiancee is in the
dark about this, send her a
copy also by registered
mail. That way you'll know
it was received.
DEAR ABBY: I am the
product of an interracial
relationship from the late
'60s. My maternal grand-
mother wanted nothing to
do with me and made my
teenage mother give me
up for adoption. Before my
biological mother passed
away a few years ago, her
dying wish was for my
grandmother and me to
form a relationship. She
didn't want her mother to
be alone in her final years.
I made an attempt to
forge a relationship with
my grandmother only to be
told that she didn't like me
because of the color of my
skin. Since then, I have been
having bad dreams of my
mother being disappointed


Dear Abby

in me because I didn't fulfill
her wish. Please advise me
on what I should do.-
UNACCEPTED IN NORTH
CAROLINA
DEAR UNACCEPTED: It
takes two people to form
a relationship. By reaching
out to your grandmother,
you did the best you could
to fulfill your mother's
wish which, from your
description of your grand-
mother, was an unfair bur-
den to try to place on you.
There's no reason for you
to court another round of
rejection and, for your sake,
I'm advising you not to.
It may help to write a let-
ter to your mother, explain-
ing to her what happened
when you reached out to
your grandmother and how
it felt, then read it at her
grave. But please, stop blam-
ing yourself for your grand-
mother's inability to love.
DEAR ABBY: While going
through pictures on my
girlfriend's computer, I dis-
covered that she had posed
nude for a drawing by her
artist daughter. I am really
bothered by her posing
nude for her daughter. How
can I bring this up, which
will let her know that I was
snooping on her computer?
- SAWWAY TOO MUCH
IN KENTUCKY
DEAR SAWWAY TOO
MUCH: Why would you
be "really bothered" by a
mother posing nude for
her daughter who is an
artist? Most mothers and
daughters have seen each
other in states of undress
and there is nothing shock-
ing about it.
My advice is to first
figure out what you think is
"wrong" with it, then admit
that you snooped so you
can talk it out. After that,
she can determine if she
wants to continue being
involved with a man who is
as nosy and prudish as you
appear to be.


Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the
afflicted and needy. Deliver the poor and needy: rid
them out of the hand of the wicked." Psalms 82:3, 4.
Happy are the people who are a part of his provi-
sion for those who are near and dear to his heart.
"Inasmuch as you have done it unto one of the least
of these, ye have done it unto me."

How often have you gone down


2,000 points on a deal and have your
partners congratulate you? It
happened to John Steinberg and
Daniel Korbel on this deal from the
Mitchell Open Board-a-Match Teams
at the recent ACBL Fall North
American Championship held in
Seattle.
There are many ways to go about
the defense on this deal, but all lead
to East-West defeating the grand
slam eight tricks a mere 2,000-
point loss. However at the other table
the contract was seven hearts making
for a score 2,210, to win the board by
net score of 210 points.
However, don't try this at rubber
bridge your "victory" could be
short-lived the opponents are still
3-to-i favorites to win the rubber and
collect a huge score!
