Rental law decision delayed


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Giving its troubled short-
term rental ordinance one last
chance to survive, Venice City
Council decided Tuesday not
to scrap the ordinance. Instead,
the city will wait until a lawsuit
over vacation rentals plays out.
The suit Altier v. City of
Venice could cost the city
another $100,000, if not more.
But if the city wins and the
ordinance is found not to
violate property owner's rights,
it's a big payoff. Venice would
be perhaps the only city with

Challenges to the

If the city loses, it's a clear
sign the ordinance will face
S unending litigation and should
be scrapped, said Council
Member Bob Daniels.
Police Chief Tom McNulty
SHERMAN detailed the three police com-
plaints filed against a Darling

Council members were
all in agreement that noise


complaints and parking viola-

they differed on a remedy.
Most would prefer to rely on
police and code enforcement.
Others said that's taking a
chance, and could open the
city to more and more vaca-
tion rentals.
"Seventy-eight percent of res-
idential homes on the island"
could be turned into vacation
rentals without an ordinance
banning that specific activity,
said council's newest member,
Dave Sherman.
Daniels and others appeared
miffed the problem appears to


affect only a handful of noisy
rentals in the Golden Beach
area.
"When I look at the emo-
tionalism of this thing and the
newspapers ... I would think the
entire city ofVenice has a prob-
lem," Daniels said. "But when I
get the data, I find we only have
13 vacation rentals (and four

only four have a license. Then

a lot. This is isolated to a very
small group in Golden Beach.

confuses



residents

By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

A one-man crime spree that began
in Manatee County Saturday morning
and ended in South Venice late Sat-
urday afternoon revealed a commu-
nications hiccup that city and county
law enforcement said will need to be
addressed.
The Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office sent out
automated reverse 911
calls Saturday afternoon
after convicted felon
Jason DanielWayo, 34,
of North Port, allegedly
made his way in a stolen WAYO
vehicle from Bradenton
into a SouthVenice neighborhood,
committing burglaries and numerous
vehicle thefts along the way.
In all, police say he stole four
vehicles, committed two home inva-
sions and was shot in a scuffle with
two men trying to help.
According to an SCSO report,
Wayo made his way to a home in the
Stoneybrook subdivision. A woman
who said she found Wayo sleeping in
her closet fled to a neighbor's home.
He got another neighbor, a retired
police officer. When they returned, the
retired officer held Wayo at gunpoint
but Wayo was able to grab the hand-
gun after a struggle.
In the melee, Wayo and the neigh-
bor trying to assist the retired officer
were both shot in the hand. The
retired officer was beaten.
Injured, Wayo pointed the gun at
the woman and demanded the keys
to her vehicle. She complied.
He fled. A chase ensued with speeds
up to 70 mph in residential neighbor-
hoods off Shamrock Boulevard.
By 1 p.m., Wayo had ditched the
vehicle and fled on foot, followed
by deputies, Venice police, Florida
Highway Patrol officers and an SCSO
helicopter. He was caught in the 3600
block of Roslyn Road in South Venice,
where he had snuck into another
home and stole money.
The owner of that home, hear-
ing the police sirens and helicopter
overhead, stepped out to see what all
the commotion was about. When he

Foundation,


critics talk
By BOB MUDGE
EDITOR

Several of the leaders of Gulf Coast
Community Foundation and several
of their critics sat down for a meeting
Monday for the first time since the
foundation dropped "ofVenice" from
its name last July.
A similar move in 2003 caused a
firestorm of protest that resulted
in "ofVenice" being added to the
new name, Gulf Coast Community
Foundation.
The organization was established
in 1995 as The Venice Foundation
with money from the sale ofVen-
ice Hospital. But the name is no
longer an issue, according to Steve
Harner, a former board member who
was approached about a meeting
by GCCF President and CEO Teri
Hansen.
"Somebody told her that she
should really reach out to these
people," he said.
Rather than meet one-on-one, he
asked that her board meet with some
of the people behind Save Our Venice
Foundation, a website critical of the

After long delay, Dona Bay restoration on tap


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

Greg Hunter, an avid
kayaker and fisherman who
moved to the Harbor Villas at
Dona Bay inVenice in October,
said he finally found where the
flounder and trout are.
Hunter, of New Jersey, who
is semi-retired, fishes there
about three times a week,
using a pedal kayak, which he
prefers because he can use two
hands for fishing.
"One for the rod, one for
the net, hopefully," he said,


laughing.
It was with people like
Hunter in mind that county
officials conceived what Sara-
sota County Commissioner
Jon Thaxton called "the oppor-
tunity of a lifetime" in 2006.
More than five years later,
commissioners are on the
verge of approving the first
phase of a $186 million plan
to restore Dona Bay, reducing
the flow of excess fresh water
by 40 percent and improving
oyster beds and seagrass there,
while also developing a water
supply of 15 million gallons a


day upstream.
The overall plan is unique
statewide, Thaxton said last
week. It would restore balance
to the mixture of fresh water
and salt water in the bay while
providing more natural fresh
water for the Dona Bay water-
shed, the 75-square-mile area
where water drains into the bay.
It also would protect property
owners from flood damage.
Commissioners were
considering phase one, a
$3.58 million project, as a
consent agenda item last
week. Phase one includes


construction of a weir (water
structure) to prevent fresh
water from Cow Pen Slough
from flowing into the bay.
That water ultimately will
be diverted to the T. Mabry
Carlton Jr. Water Treatment
Plant in Venice, where it will be
converted into drinking water.
Rather than approve the
plan last week, commissioners
wanted more time to review
and discuss it. The plan will be
on the agenda for their next
meeting, at 9 a.m. Feb. 22.

SCF seeks grant for South County high school


FROM STATE COLLEGE OF FLORIDA

The State College of Florida,
Manatee-Sarasota District Board
of Trustees has approved mov-
ing forward with an application
for a $350,000 state grant to
fund the start-up of a proposed
charter high school to be located
at the college's campus at 8000
South Tamiami Trail in Venice.
If awarded, the grant from the
Florida Department of Educa-
tion Office of Independent
Education and Parental Choice
Public Charter School Grant
Program will fund the planning,
design and initial implementa-
tion of the SCF Arts+Science
Technology, Engineering and
Mathematics Collegiate School
(SCF A+STEM).
The proposed tuition-free
charter high school for grades
10-12 is planned to start in
August. The next step in that
process is a vote by the Sara-
sota County School Board,
expected in February. Following
the school board's approval,
the SCF board and school
board will enter into contract
negotiations per state charter
school process and guidelines.
The final award of the DOE
grant will be contingent on the
completion of this process.
SCF President Dr. Ears A. Haf-
ner confirmed that the college
board will have an opportunity


to review the full proposal with
supporting data before voting
on whether to proceed with the
charter school.
A+STEM is proposed to
build up to approximately 100
students on each grade level for
an eventual cap of 300 stu-
dents. The curriculum will allow
students to graduate simul-
taneously with a high school
diploma and an associate in arts
degree while focusing on achiev-
ing admission to baccalaureate
programs in STEM fields.
In addition to incorporat-
ing strategies that enhance the
traditional STEM coursework,
the curriculum will include an
added emphasis on the arts to
highlight creativity and innova-
tive thinking.
The college has received
national attention for SCF Col-
legiate School, located on SCF's
Bradenton campus. Awarded
"A" school status by the Florida
DOE after its first year, SCFCS is
in its second year and presently
serves grades six through eight.
Applications for the 11th grade
currently are being accepted for
the 2012 school year.
In her regular report to the
board, Kelly Monod, SCFCS head
of school, reported that signifi-
cant progress has been made in
raising reading proficiency levels
of the school's lowest readers.
The innovative collegiate school

has been selected as one of 56
schools nationwide as an Apple
Distinguished School for the
2011-12 school year. Apple recog-
nized SCFCS for its commitment
to foster students' independent
learning by using Mac notebooks
and iPads.
Citing a decline in state fund-
ing for capital projects, chang-
ing enrollment trends and new
technology, the board voted to
suspend a project to replace the
outdated Bradenton campus
library with a larger library and
authorized college officials to
terminate existing contracts with
the contractor and architect.
Board Chair Carlos Beruff
repeated statements made
at a previous board meet-
ing emphasizing that trustees
recognize that a new library is
needed and should maintain its
priority position on the state's
construction list.
"We want this board to have
an opportunity to revisit the
library planning process and
have input so we can effectively
make the case for it in Tallahas-
see and to donors," Beruff said.
So far, SCF has completed
preliminary planning and infra-
structure work for the library
project.

Man with flare gun resists arrest


According to aVen-
ice Police Department
report, after receiving a
call from
residents
saying they
heard loud
voices in
the vacant
wooded
area behind
WOOLSONCROFT their house,
officers
attempted to make
contact with Scott P
Woolsoncroft, 51, home-
less, as he walked out of
the woods and got onto
a bicycle around 2 a.m.
Monday.
When police identified
themselves and ordered
him to stop, Woolsoncroft
rode away. Police estab-
lished perimeters in the
area where Woolsoncroft
was headed until he was
observed near Seaboard
and U.S. 41 Bypass hiding
behind a semi-trailer.
Police units converged on
the location and ordered
Woolsoncroft to step out
from behind the trailer.
Instead, Woolsoncroft
went farther behind the
trailer, reached under
the wheel well of one of
the tires and refused to
step out until threatened
with the K-9 unit. Still,
he refused to get on the
ground and repeatedly
reached into his jacket
until officers took him to
the ground. He contin-
ued to try to get up until
he was handcuffed.
He was taken into cus-
tody and charged with
resisting arrest. Police
searched the area around
the trailer where Wool-
soncroft had been hiding
and found a flare gun
loaded with a flare. Later,
it was discovered that
there was a warrant out
for Woolsoncroft's arrest.

An intoxicating

A South Venice woman
was arrested Friday for
disciplining her daughter
about drinking while
under the influence.


I POLICE BEAT
The information for Police Beat is gathered from police, sheriff's office, Florida Highway
Patrol, jail and fire records. Not every arrest leads to a conviction. Guilt is determined by the
courtsystem.


According to a Venice
police report:
Tracy Lee Howard,

block Olivia
Road, South
Venice, got
angry at her
13-year-old
daughter for
being intox-
HOWARD icated. As
she spoke to
her daughter she became
angry and shoved her
onto the bed, pinning
her down by the wrists.
The daughter pushed her
off and ran into her little
brother's bedroom and
locked herself in. There
she called her father, and
awaited police.
Police say Howard
appeared intoxicated and
slurred her words. How-
ard denied any physical
contact, but her 10-year-
old son confirmed her
daughter's story to police.
Howard was arrested and
charged with domestic
battery. The children
were released to a family
friend per their father's
instruction.

BB gun vandals
target local
businesses
The Sarasota County


Sheriff's Office and Ven-
ice Police Department
are seeking the public's
help in identifying what
they believe may be
youths shooting a BB gun
at local businesses.
Law enforcement offi-
cials say broken windows
and other damage began
showing up in South
Venice in December and
has been slowly moving
north into Nokomis.
The vandals strike at
night, hitting businesses
on U.S. 41.
Bill Buck Chevrolet in
South Venice has been
hit twice. Affordable Golf
Cars in Nokomis was the
most recent victim, with
windows shot out last
week.
Law enforcement
believe the vandalism
is being committed
by youths, perhaps by
someone who recently
came into possession of
a BB gun.
Anyone with informa-
tion on this crime should
call 941-861-4900, or leave
an anonymous tip with
Crime Stoppers by call-
ing 941-366-TIPS (8477),

Patrons share views of Snook Haven


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

Sue and Dick Lake,
owners of Governor's
Trace Bed & Breakfast,
the oldest B&B in his-
toric Williamsburg, Va.,
who typically vacation
on Florida's east coast,
opted this year to spend
time in Punta Gorda with
friends. Recently, they
visited Snook Haven Park
in Venice.
Converting the large
home The River
House on the Snook
Haven property into a
small bed and breakfast
is one of the possibilities
mentioned by Kenneth
Keefe, owner of the park's
concessionaire, Sunrise
Sunset Concessions of
Snook Haven, in a busi-
ness plan he submitted to
the county.


Dick Lake believes
such a business, located
near the Snook Haven
restaurant, river boat
tour launch and out-
door music, would draw
customers.
"Whenever you buy
a B&B, you've got to
always make sure that
there is plenty to do," he
said. "You can't just put
a B&B out in the middle
of nowhere and expect
people to come."
By Sarasota County
standards, Snook Haven,
located along the Myakka
River and down a long
dirt road from the inter-
section of Venice Avenue
and River Road, is in
the middle of nowhere.
There were about 20-30
customers when the
Lakes arrived for lunch at
the restaurant, which has
both slow and busy times


throughout the week and
year, like other seasonal
businesses. A recent
Sunday afternoon, for
example, saw hundreds
of customers so many
that at times it was dif-
ficult to even get a beer,
let alone food, from the
overworked servers.
"You are close enough
to Sarasota. You are
close enough to Sanibel
Island," Lake said of
Snook Haven's appeal as
a B&B. "This would be a
good jumping-off place."
Snook Haven has
been a frequent place
of respite for North Port
resident Don Powell,
who was at the park with
his 7-year-old grandson,
Gavin, and Doug Harm
of Port Charlotte.
"I've been coming here
for 30 years," said Powell,
a retired car salesman. "I


just like it. It's'Old Florida.'
I just come out, eat the
food and look for gators."
Looking for gators at
Snook Haven is "actually
a little bit hard," Gavin
said.
Tom and Judy McKen-
zie of Venice were enjoy-
ing the mid-afternoon
"atmosphere."
"We've been coming
down here for 22 years,"
Tom said.
County officials
recently revealed that
the concessionaire is
nine months behind in
rent about $40,000.
The company is required
by a 2007 contract to pay
the county 12.5 percent
of its monthly sales. Each
late payment incurs a
5 percent fee.
Presenting the business
plan was Sunrise Sun-
set's way of showing the


Judy and Tom McKenzie enjoy
an afternoon at Snook Haven's
restaurant Friday.

county it wants to make a
long-term commitment,
catch up on the rent and
run the park well.
Asked how the county
might improve Snook
Haven, Don Powell said,
"Get rid of so many signs.
'Don't do this. Don't do
that.' When we pulled up,
the first thing I said was
that since the county's
had it, everything is
'don't, don't, don't, don't.'


It used to be a laid-back
place."
Powell added that one
time he was there for
breakfast and saw a man
drinking a beer.
"That type of person
is not here anymore,"
Powell said. "They've run
the locals off."
Management wants
to attract more local
patrons at the same time
it says opening a B&B
and attracting tourists is
an option.
Asked how Snook
Haven could be
enhanced, Sue Lake said
her only suggestion is to
improve the long, dirt
road. Old washboards are
nice to look at in a rustic
setting, but no fun to
drive on.
"That's not a good thing
for a B&B," she said.

Energy rebates total $1M


FROM SARASOTA COUNTY


Since August 2010, Sara-
sota County's grant-funded
"Get Energy Smart" pro-
gram has paid more than
$1 million in rebates to local
homeowners who installed
energy-efficient upgrades,
county officials reported.
Officials said Friday the
program has closed be-
cause its funding has been
expended. The program
provided energy improve-
ment rebates to eligible
homeowners in unincor-
porated Sarasota County
and the cities of North Port,
Sarasota and Venice.
"The Get Energy Smart
program has been a huge
success when it comes to
creating opportunities for
citizens to increase the
energy efficiency of their
homes and also in dem-
onstrating to the commu-
nity the benefits of saving
energy," said Amy Meese,
Sarasota County Natural
Resources general manager.
"It has been a winning for-
mula. The program enabled
homeowners to make
energy-efficient upgrades
and lower their utility bills,
hiring area contractors and
supporting local jobs in the
process."
Local homeowners who
used Get Energy Smart
program participating con-
tractors to install program
approved energy efficient
products including HVAC
systems, insulation, solar
water heaters and Energy
Star appliances received
rebates that helped cover
some of the cost of the en-
ergy improvements. Accord-
ing to Meese, the rebates
helped make possible more
than $4.1 million in saving
in unincorporated Sarasota


County since the program's
inception.
"Not only are homeown-
ers saving money because
of the ... program, but the
availability of the rebate
funds benefited the area
Sarasota business commu-
nity as well," Meese said.
"Participating contractors
saw an increase in their
business helping to retain
jobs and keep money in our
community."
Due to the program's
success, the county has
launched a continuing
community energy educa-
tion initiative, "Energy
Upgrade Today," designed
to keep homeowners
informed on how they can
lower their utility bills in
five easy steps and access
other available incentives.

Cities' path to energy program unclear


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER
The cities of Venice
and North Port will
have to jump through
bureaucratic hoops
before current and
future businesses there
can become eligible
to receive financial
incentives through
the county's proposed
Energy Economic Zone
pilot program.
That's because unlike
the city of Sarasota,
Venice and North Port
do not have defined
urban service areas,
densely populated
areas where infrastruc-
ture (roads, water and
sewer) and services
(police and fire) are
available, as defined by
the state.

One of the state's
requirements for busi-
nesses to be eligible to
share in up to $300,000
in state tax credits an-
nually is that they be
located within adopted
urban service areas. The
entire city of Sarasota is
so designated.
Venice would have an
easier time than North
Port qualifying for the
EEZ program because
Venice (along with
Englewood and the
town of Warm Min-
eral Springs) already
is located within the
county's urban service
boundary, while North
Port is not.
Among the goals
when establishing
EEZs are containing
sprawl, creating jobs,
reducing traffic and


helping a community
become more energy
efficient. State officials
are concerned about
the impact of the wide-
open spaces in North
Port, which at 104
square miles is one of
the 10 largest cities in
the state.
"I think the state
would prohibit all of
North Port from becom-
ing a (single) energy
economic zone (like
Sarasota), for that
reason," said Mark
Loveridge, a county
planner.
County officials met
with state and North
Port representatives
about the possibil-
ity of the West Villages
Improvement District
or activity centers being
designated as energy


economic zones.
Both the North Port
and Venice councils
will have to develop
amendments to their
respective comprehen-
sive plans to define
urban service areas, or
take some other as-yet-
undetermined actions.
State lawyers are still
working that out. The
comp plan amendment
process takes three to
six months.
Whatever the require-
ments are, the North
Port City Commission
and Venice City Coun-
cil likely will be able to
meet them.
County commission-
ers are expected to give
the EEZ program final
approval on Feb. 22.

AFX offers different fitness experience


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Spending countless
hours in the gym walking
or running on treadmills,
riding stationary bikes,
doing machine-based cir-
cuit training or pumping
iron but still falling short
of your fitness goals?
Then you should consider
the AFX program, said
Alan Dalton, M.ET., O.C.S,
head fitness coach and
founder of Agility Fitness
Experience, 834 Pin-
ebrook Road. His, wife,
Alicia is a co-owner and
fitness coach.
Their program can help
you achieve your optimal
goals with activities led
by a qualified instruc-
tor, trainer or coach who
provides a very indi-
vidualized fitness experi-
ence. Arriving at AFX,
everyone completes a
fitness program report on
their history of exercise,


Mia Voigt, physical therapist, demonstrates some of the new
equipment at AFX on the special training surface with head
coach and co-owner Alan Dalton.


fitness goals and what
they have been doing to
achieve them. Based on
the answers, their trained
leader decides on the
appropriate course of
action with one-on-one
training for a while, lead-
ing into a high-, medium-
or low-intensity small-
group class.


Dalton's passion is
working with athletes,
from Little League to
college sports. AFX caters
to every level of exercise
enthusiast, including
active seniors in their
70s improving their ten-
nis techniques to play
with grandchildren. One
trainer is a golf pro who


helps golf, yoga and ten-
nis enthusiasts improve
their fitness techniques.
Nine years ago with
colleagues Dalton started
Agility Physical Therapy
at this location, special-
izing in orthopedics, with
neurological therapy
treatment for people
recovering from injuries
and surgeries. His team
did a lot of hands-on
work, including flex-
ibility, stretching and
motion exercises.
Two years ago he and
his wife acquired the
business, which led to
their recent acquisition
of adjoining premises
enlarging their space from
3,800 square feet to 6,000
square feet for the opening
of AFX. The new addition
includes 2,000 square feet
ofAstroturf, which is soft
to work and train on and
more effective in training
athletes to accelerate and
decelerate effectively.


The expansion led to
the addition of two certi-
fied personal trainers,
both with 10 years' expe-
rience and well versed in
dealing with the different
needs of clients whose
ages range from 4 to 97.
A native Floridian, Dal-
ton attended the Univer-
sity of Florida to obtain a
degree in economics, then
worked in for six years
with a leasing company
franchise, opening two
new locations. His mother
suffered a very bad knee
injury and had surgery,
and watching a physical
therapist assist her, he
decided it was a career he
wanted to pursue.
Over two years he did
200 hours of volunteer-
ing and observation at
a Tampa hospital. He
returned to school at
the University of South
Florida and a community
college while holding two
jobs, then went to the


University of St Augustine
for health sciences. He
earned a master's degree
in physical therapy and
went to work finding a
job in rural Virginia. Ten
months later he found a
job in Sarasota and his
wife chose Venice. A year
and half later he and
partners opened APT.
Married with six
children, he continues
studying orthopedic
manual therapy tech-
niques, business man-
agement and fitness.
"I enjoy and get a lot
of neat appreciation
from the families and
kids with my voluntary
evening work at Wellfield
Park," he said.
Having opened AFX,
he has groups of young
sports-minded kids visit-
ing the complex. APT and
AFX are both open from
7 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays.

Fitness trainer is All About You


"I can train anyone in
all areas of fitness," said
Jeffrey Hoover, owner
of All About You, 3449
Technology Drive, Unit
101, Nokomis, at 175 and
Laurel Road.
He specializes in one-
on-one training in a pri-
vate gym setting where
each client is the only
one receiving services.
He trains people from
teenagers to seniors,
insisting it is not so
much about training as
improving your lifestyle,
so doing the training
makes everything you
enjoy more enjoyable.
Within the 1,500-square-
foot gym is a cardio area,
and his program includes
everything from warm-
ups to physical therapy
services.
From Philadelphia,


Pa., he was a real estate
broker and investor for
20 years, but had been
working out since a
schoolboy. Thirteen years
ago he was hurt in a full-
contact kick-boxing bout
and subsequently his
weight ballooned to 315
pounds. Working out, he
dropped 100 pounds and
decided to make other
changes to his lifestyle.
In 2003, he moved to
Sarasota but continued
traveling to maintain
his real estate interests
up north. In 2009 he
decided to go to the
National Personal Train-
ing Institute and gradu-
ated; he holds additional
personal training certifi-
cations as well. Services
are available weekdays
from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.,

Services offered for kids with development delays


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

"We are really aiming to
work with kids with autism,
cerebral palsy, Down syn-
drome and developmental
disabilities who have the
same needs," said Nicole
Urbanowski, pediatric
occupational therapist.
She has opened a new,
fully equipped pediatric
occupational therapy
clinic on behalf of Fitness
Quest of Sarasota adjoin-
ing its existing adult cen-
ter at 400 South Tamiami
Trail, Room 210.
The company has been
around for eight years,
starting in Sarasota, and
has grown to eight adult
occupational and physical


therapy clinics on the Sun
Coast. This is its first step
into working with kids,
and to launch the new
division it has brought in
Urbanowski. Kids with
developmental disabili-
ties often have sensory
modulation problems
- they have a really hard
time categorizing and
processing all the sounds
and sensations coming in
to make sense of what is
going on, affecting every-
thing else they are going
to do, she said.
Parents may notice
their child is not hitting
milestones at the right
time not sitting up early
enough, not sleeping or
eating well or playing with
other children.


"Usually they will be
seeing a pediatrician who
will suggest therapy," said
Urbanowski, "and I work
with their referrals."
In 45- to 60-minute ses-
sions she works with kids
ages from birth to 11 who
have developmental delays,
problems often not diag-
nosed until they are 3 or 4.
Treatment for big sen-
sory issues is touch, and for
those who are hypersensi-
tive a great way to get input
is enjoying playing in a ball
pit. In the clinic they are
exposed to sensations in a
safe environment, improv-
ing hand and eye coordi-
nation by catching balls
thrown to them and play-
ing with Playdoh. There is
a platform swing for those


not strong enough to hold
their own bodies up and
traditional swings for the
vestibular sensation system
so they learn where their
body is in space.
Urbanowski graduated
from Boston University
with a master's in occupa-
tional therapy and extra
classes in child develop-
ment and family services
Working in that area, she
found opportunities were
limited. A support group
for families with autistic
children approached Quest
asking for services for
kids and, following talks
over a couple of years, it
approached her in Novem-
ber with this opportunity
to open the clinic in Venice.
"I am really excited


about starting something
on my own and putting
my philosophy and model
into work," she said. "I
have always enjoyed
working with kids at sum-
mer camps, most recently
as program director for
500 kids daily at camp,
planning all the games
and activities, coordinat-
ing everything."
Venice is an area where
there are no specific ser-
vices for kids, according to
Urbanowski. Her primary
connection will be with
pediatricians whose young
patients need to visit a
physical and occupant
therapist before they get to
school and are diagnosed
with sensory delays.

SUN NEWSPAPERS


OUR VIEW


Development of Springs could have ripple effect


Just a decade ago, the city of North
Port approved zoning for a large
and dramatic development at the
Warm Mineral Springs property.
Golden Springs LLC won approval
for a planned development of 270
residential units and 107,000 square
feet of commercial space on its
84-acre springs parcel. The owners
intended to rebuild the day spa and
construct 200 villas and a commu-
nity center. The northwest portion
of the property was to have single-
family homes on 27 estate-size lots.
There was to be an "integrated health
campus" with a 20,000-square-foot
conference center and restaurant,
a 30,000-square-foot "institute for
natural healing" and a 5,000-square-
foot European spa. The springs itself
was to be protected with a 300-foot
buffer, and the owners proposed two
half-acre mineral ponds fed by the
springs.
It never happened.
It's also a fair bet that style and
scope of development will never
happen.


In December 2010, an 81-acre
parcel including the springs and the
day spa were purchased by the city of
North Port and Sarasota County for
$5.5 million. The spa operator was
given a contract to continue running
the facilities for 30 months; that lease
expires in June 2013. Meanwhile, the
city and county are coordinating the
development of a long-term plan for
the tract based on public input.
Will another mega-development be
proposed? Very doubtful. What else
then? Stay tuned.
We are thoroughly impressed
with the effort and the community
response to the planning process so
far. On Jan. 21, more than 360 people
attended an open house and tour of
the springs. A couple of weeks ago a
large crowd turned out for a public
forum at the Morgan Family Com-
munity Center to hear a presentation
from city and county staff, to discuss
what they'd like to see at the site and
to register preferences.
Four rooms were set aside for
"breakout sessions" related to


preservation, economic development,
services/operations and recreation.
People "voted" by sticking little
colored dots on themed wall posters.
For instance, the economic develop-
ment themes that attracted the most
dots were "gateway improvements,"
"resort-conference center," "hotels"
and "eco-tourism." "Multi-family
dwellings" and "medical offices" got
few dots.
Participants also had the chance to
write specific suggestions on a board.
For instance, Bernie Zanck wanted to
see a gateway arch on Ortiz Boulevard
near U.S. 41; he even brought along
a drawing. Others wanted to see RV
hookups, tennis courts, horseback rid-
ing and jazz festivals.
The list was long. In fact, there
were lots of dots throughout the four
rooms, which simply indicated a lot
of people expected a lot of things at
the springs. A lot of different things,
too. Following the dots, they seemed
to want to preserve this unusual
geological, hydrological and archae-
ological site. They want to make sure


the 87-degree, mineral-rich water
continues to flow into the pond
and out to the creek where mana-
tees winter. They want connections
to the nearby Deer Prairie Creek
Preserve, big improvements to Ortiz
Boulevard, horse trails, concerts and
festivals.
They very much want this pub-
lic resource to drive new economic
development. They also want deeper
resident discounts and cheaper,
partial-day passes. All in all, a lot of
dots and a lot of expectations.
Connecting them in a way that
satisfies the most people and makes
the most sense won't be an easy task.
The most critical thing, though, is the
honest, transparent effort. Again, we
encourage everyone to participate. Go
to the county's website (scgov.net) and
the city's site (cityofnorthport.com)
and follow links to the Warm Min-
eral Springs page and take a survey.
You also can participate in a "Wiki"-
style community forum and discus-
sion board. It's pretty easy. It's very
important.


Constant motion


In Venice there is never a
dull moment.
The thought of my being in
a bed race wearing a zebra suit
and having four ladies push the
bed should have been the high-
light of my bucket list of "crazy
things to do." However, a late
night Christmas raid by a circle
of marauders bringing a festively
decorated racing bed to my yard
quickly outdid the bed race.
Now of all things, it turns
out I was talked into becom-
ing a model for a day. Anyone
who knows me well would say
that would never happen, but
when Sandy McGowan comes
a-calling, how can you say no?
The "Venice Loves Fashion"
event was held at the Venice
Yacht Club Wednesday, Feb. 8.
This event is chaired by Sandy
McGowan of Sandy's Designer
Clothing and Sandy Wilson of
Sun Bug in support of Ven-
ice Main Street. Other shops
participating were Zack's,
with Karen Evanicki leading
the charge for completing
the goody bags; Karen Shep-
pard and her Ciao Bella Salon
team; Krystyna's; Patchington;
Lisa's Classic Rose; St. Marco
Boutique; Diva's; Nana's; and
Captain's Landing.
Larry McLaren and I were the
luckiest guys in the world for
a couple of hours we got to
hang out with all the beautiful
local female models and then
model some pretty cool clothes
from Captain's Landing in front
of hundreds of wonderful lovely
ladies from Venice. Wow, what a
day for us, huh?
Events like these are put on
by local business people who
keep finding ingenious ways
to pull the public together for
a good time and give you a
glimpse of what they offer. I am
often amazed at how willingly
the businesses in the area work
together to combine commerce
and fun for an afternoon, a day
or an entire weekend. My hat
goes off to those small busi-
nesses that constantly provide
options for us consumers. I
know it can be tough and the
extra hours involved often go


unheralded, but the results
are fantastic. It was a great
event put on by sincere busi-
ness people with a fantastic
audience. And boy, those male
models were just incredible.
I continue to say to all that
will listen that when there is
a choice, please choose local
when you shop.
Out of the blue after a play at
Venice Theatre I met someone.
Her name was Kathi Cellura,
and we laughed and I was a
cut-up, as I often am. I had not
a clue that she was an author
and getting ready to have her
book signing. We have turned
that chance meeting into a
friendship and I am a better
person because of it. If you
don't know her, add meeting
her to your list. The book sign-
ing was spectacular.
Compton Cramer really
knows how to host a party.
The annualVenice Chamber
of Commerce Hob Nob was
both amazing and informa-
tive. I arrived there late after
the book signing, came in the
wrong door and had a glass
of wine. I am thinking I owe
someone $5; I did not know
there was an admission charge.
Let me know, Compton; I am
happy to pay for such an event.
Fred and Jan Lugar stood
in for me at the annual South
County Family YMCA Black
Tie event at which Gulf Coast
Community Foundation kicked
off the fundraising with a
donation of $250,000 for the
renovation of the gym, which
is used by more than 6,000
people per week. That, my
friends, is a big amount.
Jan is the Gondolier social
director as well as an award-
winning rep. Soon there will be
an earth-shattering announce-
ment from Jan and, of course,
another reason for a big party.
Ron Noble and Tom Forge
completed the annual Planta-
tion Community Foundation
Celebrity Golf Classic at the
Plantation Golf & Country
Club Feb. 8 and 9. As usual,
this event went smoothly
and all that participated were
thrilled. We are proud here at
the Gondolier to partner with
this group every year.
As you can tell, Venice is
keeping me and my staff busy
and we love every minute of it.
Make sure you take the time
to get into the action. And,
although belated, HappyVal-
entine's Day, Venice.

Tim Smolarick is publisher of
the Gondolier.

What's important. In this day
and age of tight money and too
many worthy causes, appar-
ently many in town did not like
the idea of donating money
to enhance and maintain the
Circus Arena and the old house
that was relocated beside city
hall. They've sat there looking
awful for years. Perhaps the
land could be donated to Habi-
tat for Humanity for homes
for families in need. Habitat
might even be happy to do
the teardown. Let's be sensible
and concentrate on important
causes, not frivolous ones.
Dead wood. I just returned
from up north and I noticed
that the new trees planted in
Nokomis into Venice all look
dead. Who is responsible for
taking care of them? Is there
a warranty from the company
that furnished them? They look
terrible. Something ought to
be done about them.
Snookered. I just came from
Snook Haven and can report to
you that the place was empty
and the service was horrible, the
restaurant was filthy dirty, half
of the things on the menu were
not available, scratched out
with handwritten items. These
people have no clue about
how to run a restaurant and
the county needs to do what it
needs to do to get an operator in
there that's capable of running
it. What happened to the big
crowds that used to be out there
on Sunday? They're not there
anymore. It's horrible and they'll
never be able to change it.
Sides taken. Those who
oppose Ruppel's column are
very liberal people who don't
appreciate a gifted, highly
intellectual lady. Those who
voted for Obama will be
against Mary Kay Ruppel.
Enough. I'm getting tired
of seeing Ed Martin articles
in your newspaper. He has a
way of inserting himself in our
public conversation. He has
a website. He posts things on


Let 'em





















the city server and I don't know
why he thinks he's entitled to
do that, but he does. And then,
your newspaper prints articles
from him. We don't want to
hear from him. It doesn't seem
really fair that he either attacks
certain members on council,
support certain members on
council and justifies what he
did when he was mayor. I don't
think it's really appropriate. If
people want to read Ed Martin,
they can go to his website.
That's enough.
Wrong priority. About Snook
Haven's supposed business
plan: The owner suggests that
he be allowed to pay 15 per-
cent of monthly sales instead
of 12.5 percent of monthly
sales. The only thing that's
missing in this article is what
do monthly sales average?
From that we can determine
how long this purposed plan
would take to pay off the past
due amount, which is evi-
dently $40,000 plus some late
payment fees. The general
manager of parks and recre-
ation says the main priority is
to keep the park open. I would
think the main priority is


getting these people to pay the
money they owe.
Foreign beer. It is disturb-
ing that a supposedly patriotic
American service group such as
the Rotary Club at its art festival
continues to contract with a
regional distributor that serves
beer owned by a foreign com-
pany. For a private American
corporation to do this is one
thing, but an all-American ser-
vice organization like Rotary? It
is difficult to fathom that there
is not an alternative distributor
nearby that would gladly serve
an American-owned beer at
this gala event. Rotary's insen-
sitivity for how it earns its beer
profit is appalling and the club
members should be ashamed
of themselves. If continued, any
patriotic American citizen may
want to consider boycotting
Rotary's beer kiosk next year.
Other competition. I do not
think that the Circus Arena
would compete with the per-
forming arts center planned for
Venice High School. It's going to
have a lot more seats and a lot
more space and could be used
for things like conventions, car
shows and large performances.
I would say the Venice High
School Performing Arts Center
would be competing with the
Venice Theatre.

VENICE NIPS TIMBER CREEK:
Venice scored a run in the top of
the eighth inning to edge Timber
Creek 2-1 Saturday afternoon in a

Timber Creek forced extra innings
with a home run in the bottom of
the seventh inning by Kyle Muth.
In the eighth inning, Grant Banko
led off by getting hit by a pitch.
Nick Longhi, who went 2-for-3, was
intentionally walked. Michael Rivera

the winning run.
Tyson Albert started on the
mound for Venice with four
strikeouts in 31/3 innings. Getting
the win in relief was Josh Grubbs,
who pitched the final two innings
without allowing a run.
Colton Lightner also had two hits
for the Indians.
Venice opens the regular season

Lady Mantas top Venice


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

Lemon Bay had an answer for
every Venice rally.
The Lady Manta Rays took ad-
vantage of five errors combined
over the fifth and sixth innings
to score three runs and break a
4-4 tie en route to a 7-4 victory
on Tuesday at Lemon Bay High
in Englewood.
Venice trailed 4-2 after four
innings but scored two runs
in the top of the fifth for a 4-4
deadlock.


However, Lemon Bay kept hit-
ting the ball hard.
In the bottom of the fifth in-
ning, Brooke Clemens walked
and went to second on a wild
pitch. A hard hit ball went under
the shortstop's glove for an er-
ror to score Clemens with the
go-ahead run. After a fly out, an-
other wild pitch moved Laurisa
Fisher to third base. A sacrifice
fly to right field by Sabrina
Schroeder scored Fisher to give
Lemon Bay a 6-4 lead.
The Lady Mantas (4-0) added
a run in the bottom of the sixth


inning without a hit as Venice
committed three errors.
"Our goal is always to come
out, score first and to stay
ahead," said Lemon Bay coach
Kim Pinkham. "I was a little wor-
ried at one point when they tied
it up the second time. It looked
like they were falling into a lull.
We keep telling them 'you can
hit, you can hit, you can hit. You
have to get back out there.' And
they did. Different kids stepped
up when we needed it but most
importantly they just keep hit-
ting the ball hard and help them


make some errors and kept the
ball in play."
"In all simplicity, they were the
better team," said Venice coach
Fred Sosnoski. "They hit the ball
hard but every time we came
tied it or got up, as soon as we
got back on the field, we made
errors and let them have the
game. They hit the ball hard. We
just made the mistakes at certain
positions. The mistakes we made
cost us. We gave them the game
by committing the errors."

WRESTLING CLASS 2A-REGION 3 TOURNAMENT



Young wrestlers make strong showing


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

Venice High wrestling head
coach Dan Kelly understood this
was rebuilding season when he
fielded a team with at least six
freshman in the lineup.
Still, the 17-year head coach
wasn't prepared for what trans-
pired in the Class 2A-Region 3
Tournament Saturday at Char-
lotte High in Punta Gorda.
The Indians qualified nine
wrestlers three freshmen,
sophomore, two juniors and
three seniors to regionals af-
ter placing second in the district
tournament.
At the start of the second day
of regionals, Venice still had five
wrestlers still in the running for
states.
However, at the end of the day
the Indians were left without a
state qualifier for the first time
in 19 years.
"You go through those five


underclassmen and they did a
great job, but it's a hard pill to
swallow," said Kelly. "I will be
honest, it's real disappointing."
Venice came close, as three
wrestlers CJ Trammell, Garrett
Johnson and Quinton O'Brien
- ended their seasons just one
match from qualifying for states.
Only the top four place-finish-
ers in each weight class advance
to the state tournament.
"From day one it was going to
be a rebuilding year," said Kelly,
"losing so much from last year
and having a lot of freshman in
the lineup. To be honest, as the
year went on and we were suc-
cessful, and especially last week
after districts, you start kind of
build your hopes up a little bit that
maybe something will happen."
In the wrestleback semifinals,
Trammell, a sophomore, put up
a fight and dropped a 4-1 deci-
sion to Charlotte senior Aiden
Collins in the 138-pound weight
class.


It was their third meeting this
season, as Collins handed Tram-
mell (30-18) two losses, 14-6 and
18-7.
"CJ, what a great job he did
coming through like that," said
Kelly. "That kid destroyed him at
districts and the dual. He gave
him a heck of match."
In the 285-pound weight class,
O'Brien (25-16) matched up
with Charlotte's CodyWaldrop
(33-3) again. This was their third
meeting. Waldrop won the other
two, 8-2 and 6-0.
This time, O'Brien lost 4-0, al-
lowing just two takedowns.
"Quinton was outstanding,"
said Kelly.
In a heartbreaking match
at 195 pounds, senior Garrett
Johnson battled Hillsborough's
Demetrius Hill.
After a scoreless first period,
Johnson escaped in the second
period for a 1-0 lead. In the third
period, Hill escaped for a 1-1 tie.
In the final 25 seconds,

Expectations high as season begins


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

A heartbreaking and unexpected loss
in the first round of the postseason is
something Venice hopes to avoid this
season.
With the loss of only two seniors to
graduation and the return of seven
starters, including four seniors, ex-
pectations are high this season for the
Indians.
"We have a very talented team and
I'm pretty excited about our season,"
said Faulkner, who is starting his 14th
season as head coach.
Last year, the Indians had a good
season, winning 11 of their first 12
games including the prestigious Sara-
sota Baseball Classic and ending with a
20-7 record. Venice ended up as district
runner-up behind Manatee, which
advanced to the Class 5A state semi-
finals. The Indians' season came to a
conclusion with a 1-0 setback to Tampa
Gaither in the regional quarterfinal.
Venice lost two to graduation Brett
Swikle and Aaron Rhodes, who was
the No. 1 pitcher with a 5-2 record,
including a no-hitter with 16 strikeouts
against Charlotte in the district semifi-
nal. Swikle went 3-1 on the mound last
year and also started in right field.
On a squad of 23, the Indians have
nine seniors, 10 juniors and four
sophomores. The returning starters are
sophomore Dalton Guthrie, shortstop;
sophomore Michael Rivera, catcher;

Johnson (33-8) nearly had two
takedowns but both were ruled
out of bounds. Then with nine
seconds remaining, Hill rushed
Johnson and got a takedown,
ending the match, 3-1.
"Garrett Johnson not mak-
ing (states) is, of course, the big
disappointment because he did
everything right all year long -
extra running, drilling, working
hard," said Kelly. "The last match
was just a heck of a match. That
kid is tough and it could have
gone either way. Garrett almost
had the takedown two times. I
don't think the kid did anything
and he caught him with a shot."
Kelly thought Johnson could
have been on the podium earn-
ing a medal at states.
"I told the kids, my under-

a lesson," said Kelly. "No matter

immediately."
The Venice Police
Department's three dis-
patchers and their super-
visor were inundated with
100 calls questioning the
reverse 911 calls, accord-
ing to Police Chief Tom
McNulty.
Most wanted to know if
the calls were real. Others
said they found the direc-
tives conflicting.
Venice police told them
to stay in their homes and
lock their door.

A continuing criticism
has been that money from
the endowment has been
given to agencies outside
that area with little benefit
to the people in it. Hamer
said Taylor assured him
grants from the endow-
ment are scrutinized to
make sure that doesn't hap-
pen, but the people behind

needs to be done, he said.
"What we would like to
see is a funds statement
from the endowment,"
he said a document
listing investment activity,
earnings, grants and fees,
something the Community
Foundation of Sarasota
County provides, as does
GCCF but for donor funds.
Foundation officials
said Monday that endow-
ment funds make up about
60 percent of its holdings,
he said. That could mean
that it also bears 60 percent
of expenses, including costs
of programs it doesn't fund.

work," he said. "We just

"This maybe a great

seen that."

He forwarded a couple of
emails to the police chief
from Sawgrass residents
detailing the confusion and
asking the chief to look into
the matter.
"Since they didn't say on
the automated message
where the incident was
occurring, I assumed it was
in Sawgrass," wrote Cyn-
thia Magill. "(VPD) replied

His group is going to
make a formal request
for fund statements but
doesn't anticipate any fur-
ther meetings at this point.
Hansen wasn't available
Tuesday but relayed com-
ments about the meeting
through a staffer.
According to Kelly
Romanoff, marketing
manager, Hansen called the
meeting a cordial conver-
sation "about the role of a
community foundation and
how it enhances the quality
of life in a community."
The foundation is
already addressing trans-
parency issues, Romanoff
said. Additional infor-
mation is going up on
its website, gulfcoastcf.
org, and it recently held a
webinar it called a "virtual
town hall meeting" to
educate participants about
the foundation's structure,
programs and finances.
About 30 people logged in

On Tuesday, Sheriff Tom

It's a good opportunity

County vendor meeting set for today


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER
When Mark Thiele began
working as the Sarasota
County procurement of-
ficial in August, he saw that
staff had begun rectifying
problems in the purchas-
ing system that led to one
employee being arrested
and 10 losing their jobs.
"They were already
picking up the policies that
they had in place and were
starting to enforce them,"
Thiele said. "That was the
biggest problem, because
we had pretty decent poli-
cies in the past, but the ex-
ceptions became the new
policies. Now that we are
back on target, that's the
first, most important thing
that we have done."
Five months after his ar-
rival, Thiele, the former pro-
curement official in Cape
Coral, said, "we're back to
being a professional depart-
ment. Now when there are
problems or questions that
you would have in a normal
procurement operation, we
are back on to doing the
day-to-day things, so that
the work is getting out the
door in a very professional,


best-practices manner."
Sarasota County vendors
who were interviewed by
the National Institute of
Governmental Purchasing
in preparation for that orga-
nization's May 2011 report
identifying problems with
the procurement system
and other interested people
are invited to the second
and final NIGP follow-up
discussion, which will be
held from 8:30 a.m. to
11 a.m. today at the county
health and human services
building, room 226, 2200
Ringling Blvd., Sarasota.
A meeting was held with
vendors in October to
gather input on prioritizing
improvements.
One vendor, Jason Swift
of Jon Swift Construction in
Sarasota, said his commer-
cial construction company
has done a variety of work
for the county, including
parks, renovations and
HVAC projects.
But Swift hasn't done
much county work lately,
other than some "obscure"
work that people would not
notice, such as night work
or maintenance work on an
elevator in the county jail.
Swift said he's not as


familiar with the procure-
ment situation as he was in
the past, but "it appears the
county is making strides to
put the proper people and
procedures in place to cor-
rect their issues."
Swift said his business
has not been affected by
problems in the county's
procurement process. The
issues that he has heard
about, "like the mowing
contracts and contracts go-
ing to certain vendors be-
cause they like them more
than others, really have not
affected us," he said. "The
big thing that we just want
to make sure is that the lo-
cal people (vendors) get to
have the preference if they
are equal to the people
who are coming from out
of our area. They do things
a little bit different at times
(in procurement), but we
work through that."
Thiele said the procure-
ment staff works with
county business units,
which purchase goods and
services with county funds,
and occasionally a county
attorney, to determine
the best practices for a
situation.
"We don't like excep-


tions," Thiele said. "What
does the policy really
say? Sometimes there is a
temptation for a business


unit to want to consider,
'Can't we do it the way we
used to?' We (tell them)
why the change was neces-


sary and they are on board
with us. The changes are
happening."

Beach Bash honors city's anniversary


By PAM JOHNSON
GUEST WRITER

The beach has always been
a draw for Venice.
The Gulf of Mexico provided
the earliest settlers with a
means of transportation and
a source of food and income.
Its beaches were places to
congregate, enjoy nature and
water recreation and view
beautiful sunsets.
During the year of 1926,
the beach continued to draw
tourists and those interested
in investing in real estate or
purchasing a home in which
to live.
The Brotherhood of Loco-
motive Engineers and its con-
tractor, Fuller Construction,
were making John Nolen's
planned city a reality. As a
new town sprouted from the
ground, seemingly overnight,
so the population of Venice
grew. In one year, Venice went
from a population of 100 to
more than 4,000.
The newcomers as well as
those who had been here for
years often gathered at the
beach to get to know each
other. Their combined efforts
to see the little town turn
into a city were fortified with
shared casseroles and pies
enjoyed around a bonfire. Per-
haps they, too, watched for the
flash of green in their sunsets.
(Editor's note: It is said that
one can see a green flash at
precisely the moment when
the setting sun touches the
water at the horizon if there
are no clouds in the sky.)
In those days the pace of life
in Venice was almost jarring.
The BLE acquired 53,000 acres
of land, more than even it
dreamed could be developed
in its immediate future. The
land stretched from the Gulf
to the Myakka River, and from
Roberts Bay to the area where
Venice Municipal Airport
is today. Some of that land
was purchased from Dr. Fred
Albee, the famous orthopedic
surgeon who invented bone
grafting.
Albee's dream of building a
city brought his fellow Har-
vard graduate and famed city
planner, Nolen, to the area.
At the time Albee's vision for
Venice centered around what
is now Nokomis. When Albee
sold his land to the BLE, the
location of the vision shifted
to south of Roberts Bay.

Ledgier and French of New

Gulf View and Edgewood
seemed to increase in size
daily.

A new beach house was built in 1930 to replace the one destroyed by the
hurricane of 1926 at Venice Beach.


Businesses took readily to
the infant downtown, with a
post office, drugstore, grocery
store and even a dress shop
in early 1926. A public school
was opened near Tampa Ave-
nue and St. Augustine Street
for 60 students in late fall.
Among the first buildings
to go up were two beautiful
Italianate hotels, the Hotel
Venice, now the Summit, an
assisted-living facility on the
corner of Tampa Avenue and
Nassau Street, and the Park
View Hotel, located where
the current post office is on
West Venice Avenue. They
embodied the Northern Ital-
ian Renaissance architectural
style selected for the entire
new city.
The orangerie, a courtyard
lined with orange trees just
outside the doors of the din-
ing room at the Hotel Venice,
became the city's center of
social life as well as a venue
to entertain would-be prop-
erty owners. Large homes
between the downtown and
the beach were built as spec
homes in which potential
buyers might imagine them-
selves living. A golf course
and country club were in the
making on the site that would
later become Country Club
Estates and the Publix shop-
ping center.
On Sept. 18 a hurricane
slammed into the area,
pulling green citrus fruit
from their trees and send-
ing them through the air
like missiles from a drone.
The storm toppled ancient
trees, ripped new roofs from
their buildings and flooded
most of the area. It destroyed


Knights Chapel in
Nokomis, which had served
as the place of worship for
most of the earliest families
for more than two decades.
The church was rebuilt the
following year on land that
Albee donated, where today's
Venice-Nokomis Methodist
Church stands.
At Venice Beach, the first
bathhouse, built by Albee, was
damaged, so its pieces were
used to build another bath-
house near today's Chauncy
Howard Park.
Years later, a new bathhouse

FROM TRIANGLE

The Triangle Inn
Association received
a $10,000 grant from
Gulf Coast Community
Foundation recently for
the restoration of the city
of Venice's first firetruck,
affectionately known as
"Old Betsy."
The Gulf Coast fund-
ing represents a major
portion of the monies
needed to restore Old
Betsy.
The restoration work
was done by PRIDE

firetruck has been done.
The firetruck was
purchased by the Broth-
erhood of Locomotive


Engineers as part of
its development of the
city of Venice in the
late 1920s. The 1926


American LaFrance fire-
truck was for many years
the only fire apparatus
in the area. It was not
until the 1950s that the
city purchased another
firetruck.
Old Betsy has been an
ambassador for the city,
representing the city in
parades from St. Peters-
burg to Fort Myers. She
has been a part of the
city's annual Holiday
Parade for many years,
first carrying Santa
Claus and then mem-
bers of city council. She
also has appeared at
numerous local events,
including the Lions
Club annual Halloween
celebration in down-
town Venice.

little booming town of
Venice was incorporated

celebrated at the beach
at a barbecue on Feb. 27.
The council set out
to adopt the first ordi-

Among its first actions,
the council created
building, plumbing and
electrical codes, gar-
bage regulations and a
pound for stray animals,
and instituted higher
occupational licenses
for outside businesses to
give local businesses the
edge.

community center is
named for him. Ste-
phen Albee, Dr. Albee's
brother, and Walter
Dunn, an early settler,
also served on the board.
To draw tourists
to Venice there were
special events, such as
a tarpon tournament,
dance contests and other
entertainment. George
Webb, vice president of
BLE Investment, went to
Miami to try to lure the
owners of the Biltmore
Hotel to build a resort on
the south end of the new
city.
Ironically, just as it was
getting revved up, the
boom was about to come
to a screeching halt.


In a few short months
two of the five hotels
already built in Venice
were closed. For the next
decade the town would
remain as it was in 1927,
with about 141 apart-
ments, 188 houses and
numerous 5-acre truck-
farm sites with wells for
irrigation.
By summer, an audit of
the BLE showed a loss of
$4 million. It was obvi-
ous the little city's growth
was stymied.
There were so many
overgrown vacant lots
that brush fires became
a dominant issue. The
American LaFrance,
today known as "Old
Betsy," earned its keep.

PHOTO COURTESY OF VENICE ARCHIVES
AND AREA HISTORICAL COLLECTION
"Old Betsy,"with its 700-gallon tank, was used to put out a lot
of brush fires in the days after the housing boom ended.


A flashing red light and
a siren were placed on
the top of the Johnson-
Schoolcraft Building,
which housed the drug-
store and soda fountain
on the corner of Nokomis
and Venice avenues. The
light and siren alerted
the volunteer firefighters
of another call.
By Christmas life as
Venetians had known
it for the past two years
had drastically changed.
Poverty was becoming
more evident than it had
been in Venice's most
primitive era. Deputy
Sheriff Pete Edge took
needy children to Wool-
worth's to choose a gift. A
"welfare committee" was
formed to collect food
and clothing for those


who had none.
Those who were better
off no longer dressed in
their finest apparel to
attend elaborate din-
ners at the Hotel Venice.
Instead, once again
they opted for shared
potluck dinners on the
beach. And so it would
be throughout the Great
Depression for the few
hundred people who
stayed in Venice.

Some information
for this story came from
"Venice: Journey From
Horse and Chaise" by
Janet Snyder Matthews.

Pam Johnson is the
marketing and commu-
nications officer for the
city of Venice.

WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

4 7 CA86520 KQJ76 95

Partner opens the bidding with one
heart. What do you respond?

A If you choose to bid four hearts,
there is no doubt you will be in a
comfortable game. However despite
your count of 13 distributional points
you could very easily be laydown for
slam on many hands where partner
would pass. Show your interest by
jumping to three diamonds and see
how partner reacts.

Q 2 Both vulnerable as South you
hold:


A Q976 KJ5


AQ 41076


What is your opening bid?

A What's the problem? You have a
five-card spade suit and 16-plus
points a comfortable one spade
opening bid. However, the problem
comes when you have to rebid it
might be near impossible to describe
your hand. Mix a spade in with your
clubs and open one no trump.

Q 3 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

4 10 9 7 3 AK 9 5 0 AQ 1076

The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
16 Pass 2,6 Pass
9
What do you bid now?

A You have been trapped into a poor
rebid by your choice of opening bid.
With a balanced 15, why not open
one no trump? Now you have to pass
and play what could well be your
second-best contract.

Q 4 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

AJ74J80 A98546K764

The bidding has proceeded:


NORTH EAST SOUTH
10 Pass ?
What do you respond?


WEST


A Another one that slipped in by
accident. To bid anything but one no
trump should be unthinkable. Why
raise diamonds with your balanced
hand, especially since partner might
have bid a three-card suit?

Q 5 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

S10 8 3 A QJ 2 0 9 54 K Q 95


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


WEST
Pass


A You have the values for a jump
raise of partner's suit, but a leap to
four clubs takes you beyond three no
trump, which could be your only
makable game. Your choice lies
between an ugly bid of the fourth suit
or a slight underbid of three clubs,
and we have a strong preference for
the latter.

Q 6 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

SK 9 2 K 7 5 4 0 Q 10 4 8 6 5


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


WEST
Pass


A You have a minimum response
and a square hand, so don't look for
miracles. While you have three-card
support for both of partner's suits,
you have a flat hand and can describe
both its strength and shape by
rebidding one no trump.

It is Mardi Gras time at Universal Studios


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Mardi Gras bead warehouses are likely run-
ning on empty this week.
It is Mardi Gras time at Universal Studios
where daily parades would not be complete without
Mardi Gras swag especially beaded necklaces.
The beads are a bonus however something
to dress up one's outfit for watching "14 of the
biggest names in music" who will be appearing
during Universal Orlando Resort's 2012 Mardi
Gras festivities. The stars will come out every
Saturday through April 14 plus a few other select
nights, according to a release from Universal
Orlando. Think Cyndi Lauper, Plain White Ts
and Kelly Clarkson and super star Diana Ross,
among others.
There also will be bands direct from New
Orleans, Cajun cuisine and elaborately costumed
performers in the parades and beads. The
parade floats were hand-made by the same com-
pany that makes most of the ones used in New
Orleans for its Mardi Gras celebration, Blaine
Kern Artists.
Clarkson will be featured Saturday on the
Music Plaza stage, singing hits from "Stronger;' her
recently released CD. Ross will perform on Feb. 25
and Lauper on April 7. Zydeco fans will find plenty of
concerts just for them March 16, 17, 23 and 24.
The Mardi Gras action takes place in Univer-
sal's French Quarter where, in addition to beads,
concerts and parades, there will be beignets and
seafood gumbo.
If ever there were a time to be staying in one of


One of four new floats for the 2012 Mardi Gras
celebration at Universal Studios Orlando is this
one that honors the polar regions with both
polar bears and penguins.

Having extra time with Harry Potter is important to
many and Shrek is always looking for extra folks to

Circus debuts U.S. tour in Venice


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
or the first time since 1992 when the Greatest
Show on Earth left Venice, a major circus will
debut its United States tour show in Venice.
The Venice Circus Arts Foundation and Cirque
Italia will present "Aquatic," a circus show en-
hanced by water. The performance will take place
in a large pool of water, with fountains shooting
water through the air. Even the tent itself gives
the illusion of water streaming down a mountain.
"It is our intention to completely shock and
surprise audiences with a performance that
outshines Broadway, transcends Soleil and
surpasses the image of Disney," said Jennifer
Rebecchi, a spokesman for Cirque Italia. "It is the
perfect time to introduce and create the image of
a new brand of'Cirque and Show.'We intend to
create a show that is magical, modern, breathtak-
ing, and most importantly unforgettable."
The blue and white tent is on its way from Italy,
with a genuine gondola from Venice, Italy, for Venice
Circus Arts, with an expected arrival at the Port of
Miami early next month. Longtime Ringling circus
star Tito Gaona will be among the members of the
Venice Circus Arts organization who will go to Miami
to welcome the show to America.
According to Orlando Bevington, executive
director of the Circus Arts Foundation which is
working to restore the arena as a performing
arts venue/civic center, Cirque Italia will share


the proceeds of its Venice run with the organiza-
tion. With three performances Thursday through
Saturday and two performances each Sunday,
the proceeds could reach well into six figures
and generate enough money to repair the roof
of the old building which has been deemed
structurally sound although it is in serious need
of a face lift. It needs new restrooms and the
technical equipment needed for the production
of major entertainment shows, trade shows and
other events too large for any other venue on
Florida's west coast south of Tampa or north of
Estero. With more than 4,500 seats, it would seat
nearly three times the number of patrons who
can be accomodated at Sarasota's Van Wezel
Performing Arts Hall, which, even after its recent
renovation, seats just 1,720 people. As an arena,
it also could accommodate circuses, ice shows and
other shows too large for the Van Wezel stage or
the stage in the soon-to-be built performing arts
center at the new Venice High School.
Venice Theatre's managing and artistic direc-
tors Murray Chase and Allan Kollar have both
made many comments about the need for such a
facility here as an adjunct to Venice Theatre and
an economic booster to the local economy.
As in the days when The Ringling Brothers
and Barnum & Bailey Circus wintered in Venice,
"Aquatic" will rehearse in Venice prior to the
show's opening.
There also will be a major fundraiser benefiting

with silent auction items and paddle raise auction.
Tickets for the gala are $125 per person.
The Italian circus will held in the parking lot of the
old K-Mart in Venice at U.S. 41 and Shamrock.


Circus performances will be Thursday-Satur-
day at 1 p.m., 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. and Sundays at

Acclaimed pianist returns to Venice


ElnCv-. February 15-21,2012


PROVIDED BY THE VENICE PERFORMING
ARTS SERIES
Last year's Venice Performing Arts Series
boasted the sold out house of acclaimed
concert pianist Hsia-Jung Chang, so it is
only natural to welcome her back in this newly
crafted program "Clair de Lune" featuring the
French impressionist music of Debussy and
Faur6 at 7 p.m. Saturday.
Chang will perform well known piano works of
Debussy on the first half of the program including
the famous "Clair de Lune,' the inspiration of the


program. On the second half, Student Spotlight
Artist Rachel Querreveld, soprano will open
with a set of Faure songs, "Pobme d'un jour," a
group of three songs depicting a turbulent love
affair.
Deborah Berioli, soprano and artistic direc-
tor of the series will perform several opulently
beautiful songs of Faure and Debussy, accom-
panied by Chang.
Many recall the banter and wit of Chang in ad-
dition to the exceptional level of artistry and skill.
The program will weave tales of the composers


of the era adding insight and depth to the musical
selections.
Tickets are available at The Paper Pad on Ven-
ice Avenue or by calling 941 284-5972. Seating
is general admission and the ticket price of $20
includes decadent goodies on the lanai during
intermission.

Hermitage fellow performs at Historic Asolo Theater


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
BoraYoon will share her work in sound at
Ringling's Historic Asolo Theater at
7:30 p.m. Thursday.
"Bora Yoon is an amazing artist," said Bruce E.
Rodgers, executive director of the Hermitage Art-
ist Retreat in Englewood."She has been featured
on the front page of the'Wall Street Journal' and
in'Wired Magazine'for her musical innovations.
This will definitely be a night of experimentation
and surprises. Anyone interested in, or curious
about, new music will want to be there."
Yoon's innovations are just that. Using the laws
of physics at times, she has composed works
inspired by various sources of sound, including
the nature sounds that derive from a conch shell
found at the beach as well as present-day man-
made sounds such as those from a cell phone.
Such sounds led to her composition, "Semaphore
Conductus." which was performed in surround
sound. Weights and pulleys also are part of the
study of physics. These are the inspiration for a
one-woman show, "Weights & Balances'"


Brooklyn's 55,000-square foot McCarren Pool
inspired "Doppler Dreams"' When performed the
work featured seven sopranos but the cavernous
empty pool was as much a part of the final sound.
A similar work was co-composed with Paul K.
Fowler, Paul Haas and Sympho for the Park
Avenue Armory drill hall, another vast and empty
space in which sound is changed by the very na-
ture of the space and its surrounding enclosure.
The Ringling performance is the result of her
work as a Gulf Coast Community Founda-
tion/Hermitage Resident, an honor bestowed
on just one Hermitage Fellow annually by the
foundation. In that capacity she resides on
the grounds of the John and Mable Ringling
Museum of Art for more than a month, drawing
inspiration from its many museums, grounds
and even the home of the late John and Mable
Ringling. According to a press release from
the Hermitage, she is working with collabora-
tors and will present excerpts from the current
work, 'Weights & Balances" on Thursday as well
as work from "Sunken Cathedral" which will be
recorded soon. She will interact with members of

Exsultate! presents 'Songs from Witty to Wondrous'


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Conductor and artistic director Stephen
Johns continues to make a positive differ-
ence on the chamber chorale known as
Exsultate!.
The group's next concert, Sunday, promises
"Songs from Witty to Wondrous" with some
whimsy along the way thanks to Aaron Copland's
"I Bought Me a Cat" which will be on Sunday's list
of offerings.
Other songs include Melinda Bargreen's jazzy
"Camptown Races," "Ave Maria" by Franz Biebl,
Verdi's "Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves." Randall
Thompson's "Alleluia" and Rene Clausen's ar-
rangement of "What a Wonderful World."
One of the groups's newer singers described
a song put together by Johns to illustrate the
group's name (Exultate!). She said it is fun to sing
and should please the audience. This is the kind
of talent Johns brings to his newest post which is
in addition to the fine job he continues to do as
director of choral groups (including the Madrigal
Singers) at Venice High School. In recent years,
Johns has taken several high school groups to
New York City where they have performed at
Carnegie Hall.
Singers are primarily trained professionals
admitted to the group from auditions. Augment-
ing the group are a few high school students that
are part of the groups Seniors Mentoring Juniors
apprenticeship program.

Wine & Jazz Fest celebrates food and music


BY GORDON BOWER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce
Wine & Jazz Fest brings big-name
entertainers to Laishley Park every year for
a food, wine and music extravaganza, and this
year's version, scheduled for Saturday, promises
more of the same.
No one, not even chamber marketing and
recruitment manager Pat Olivia, who helps orga-
nize the event, expected it to get so big so fast.
"This is our seventh year,' she said. "I don't
even remember who the heck the main act was
for that first one. Attendance just kept going up;
every year it got bigger and bigger. We started in
Gilchrist Park but outgrew it after three years."
The headline acts this year are all returnees
who have drawn large crowds in the past, includ-
ing internationally renowned singer/saxophonist
Mindy Abair, who has toured or recorded with the
likes of the Backstreet Boys, Duran Duran and
Josh Grogan.
Oliva said, "She has a very good following of
people who come here from all over. She's very
dynamic on stage and personable with the audi-
ence. They love that"'
She is joined by the Rippingtons, a contempo-
rary jazz group led by Grammy-nominated guitar-
ist and composer Russ Freeman, and smooth
jazz guitarist Peter White, who has won many
international awards.

in Laishley Park.
"We are having a second day just to keep
people in town,' Oliva said. "We have so many
out-of-towners, 60 to 70 percent. They are here
using the hotels and restaurants, which is a good
thing for sure."

Third annual Punta Gorda


Banjo Bash is this weekend


BY SHIRLEY GEORGE
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The Gulf Coast Banjo Society presents
the third annual Punta Gorda Banjo Bash
Friday-Saturday at the Charlotte Harbor
Event & Conference Center featuring Buddy
Wachter, Johnny Baier with special guests, the
Sowell Family Pickers.
The Gulf Coast Banjo Society was founded
in 1988 by Helen Baker and Ollie Austin (now
deceased) with 12 members. Currently, there
are more than 50 banjo players from Florida's
Southwest Gulf coast.
Baier was crowned Canadian National
Champion Banjoist in 1983 at the competition in
Ontario, Canada. He has performed at various
venues throughout the United States. Baier is the
executive director of the National Banjo Museum
in Oklahoma City, Okla.
According to a press release by GCBS
president, John Wildeman, well-known composer
Marvin Hamlish stated, "Buddy Wachter could
bring an audience back from the dead'"Wachter
is considered to be the greatest four-string banjo
player alive today.
The Sowell Family Pickers from Hempstead,


TX love to play music and sing together. After
much encouragement from many people, the
family band was formed in 2010 to "spread
joy and laughter to all'"Their instruments are
bass guitar, five-string bluegrass banjo, man-
dolin, ukulele, and tenor banjo. These kids are
amazing,' Wildeman said. "They are talented,
well-mannered and respectful.The audience will
be delighted with their performance."
All proceeds will be donated to children's
bands and to help children learn to play musi-
cal instruments. Fretted Instruments Guild of
America and Young Musicians Education Foun-
dation, Inc., non-profit organizations, distribute
the funds. Over the past two years, the Punta
Gorda Banjo Bash has raised nearly $20,000
for youth musical educational programs.
Performers are appearing gratis.
Wildeman, who has been with the group for
seven years, said, "Our sole purpose is to help
children financially with learning to play musical
instruments. Personally, I have the opportunity to
play with some of the greatest guys and girls I've
ever had the pleasure of meeting.To be in the
company of these talented people is one of the
greatest thrills of my life."

A red carpet awaits attendees


to the Women's EXPO of SWFL


BY CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The Women's EXPO of SWFL celebrates
its five-year anniversary from 9 a.m. to 3
p.m. Saturday at a brand-new venue, the
Charlotte County Fairgrounds. Founder/organizer
Diana Donlon has planned a royal welcome for

their picture taken with Elvis between 9 a.m. and
noon, or solo between noon and 3 p.m., before
heading to the more than 100 exhibits displaying

to educate, enhance and empower Southwest


Florida women.There will be BioMat sessions to

A two-time award winning event, the expo at-
tracts thousands of attendees each year. Founder

erful women are when they come together and

The Mystics in concert


PROVIDED BY CORD COSLOR
CELEBRITY DIRECT ENTERTAINMENT
Doo Wop legends The Mystics will be
performing a rare Charlotte County
performance at 7 p.m. Sunday at the
Charlotte County Cultural Center.
True legends in the realm of harmony music,
The Mystics are one of the most sought after
Doo Wop groups on the curcuit today.
They recorded many popular songs includ-
ing "Hushabye" which spent nine weeks on the
national charts, and over 50 years as a favorite
song to millions.
The lineup of the Mystics is like an all-star
cast of Doo Wop legends. Phil Cracolici (original
Mystic), George Galfo (original Mystic), Joseph
Mirrione (formerly of Terry Johnson's Flamingo's
and founder of YoungerDayz) and Joe Neary
(formerly of Reunion).
They group began in Brooklyn, NY in
the late 1950s. The group was known as
The Overons, a quintet that, when signed to
Laurie Records, consisted of Cracolici (lead),
Albee Cracolici (baritone), Galfo (second
tenor), Bob Ferrante (first tenor), and Al Con-
trera (bass). Under the direction of their
manager, Jim Gribble, The Overons became


The Mystics when each group member wrote
a name they liked on a slip of paper, placed
the papers in a hat and Contrera's choice was
drawn.
In May 1959, Laurie Records released
"Hushabye" and within a few weeks the record
was a smash. At its peak, "Hushabye" was top ten
in most of the tri-state area, spending nine weeks
on the national charts that spring and summer,
where it climbed to number 20.
After Cracolici left the group and beginning in
1960, the Mystics' lead singer changed several
times. In mid-1961, The Mystics stopped
recording and performing.
The nostalgia boom that began in 1969
brought the original five members back together
and they began performing again on the rock and
roll revival circuit.
By the early 1980s, the group was
Phil Cracolici, Albee Cracolici, Al Contrera
and Johnny T As of Jan 2011, Cracolici
has joined his nephew Galfo and his group
George Galfo's Mystics, which is now
known as the Mystics.
Tickets are $19 and are available by calling
941-625-4175 ext. 221 or at the Cultural Center,
2280 Aaron St., Port Charlotte.

Burnt Store Marina's

Calusa Queen


BY JON BAUMANN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Just a bit South and West of downtown Punta
Gorda is the newest entry into the boat tour
business, the Calusa Queen, a 28 passenger
boat offering a variety of tours with a bit of a twist.
Entertainment, history and nature cruises all in one.
With the Calusa Queen excursions, there's
something for everyone. In fact, it's difficult to
choose just one type of cruise to go on. Own-
ers Will and Lisa Olds have packaged different
cruises around the Matlacha Art Community and
the Tarpon Lodge to create shopping and dining
possibilities and nature tours featuring the Calusa
Heritage Trail, the Jug Creek, the Peace River
and the Charlotte Harbor.
Along the way the beauty of nature is always
on display. Around every bend there may be
dolphins, alligators, manatees, sea turtles, wood
storks, egrets, pelicans, herons and much more.
"My background is history," said Will, a former
Navy officer and captain of the cruises. "I was a
history teacher for 26 years in public schools in
Florida. We named the boat the Calusa Queen
after the first human beings to encounter this part
of America." The storied history of the Calusa In-
dians, the old phosphate ghost town, Liverpool, or
an active archaeological site run by the Randell
Research Center in cooperation with the Florida
Museum of Natural History could be a part of the
particular cruise you choose to journey on. "We're
really looking to give people the full experience of
the varieties of habitat," Lisa explained.
The Matlacha Art Community Cruise docks
at the Olde Fish House Marina and Restaurant


in the village of Matlacha where passengers
disembark for an hour or so for lunch or to take in
over 25 distinctive shops and galleries, including
the Wild Child Art Gallery and the Island Visions
shop. Many passengers grab a cone at Great
Licks Ice Cream before heading back on board
for the return trip home. The half day Calusa
Heritage Trail and Tarpon Lodge Cruise offers
passengers an opportunity for lunch on the shore
of Pine Island Sound and a guided tour of the
grounds of an ancient Calusa Indian village.
For those who are simply looking for a boat
tour of what many call Old Florida, the Olds offer
the Jug Creek Eco-Tour, the Peace River Cruise
or the Charlotte Harbor Sunset Cruise, where
it may be possible to see the green flash, an
atmospheric condition that can occur just as the
sun disappears over the horizon.
Lisa and Will Olds' mission is to provide their
passengers access to the beautiful world of
nature and to promote the conservation of natural
resources. Along the way they have created
cruises that both entertain and educate through
the history of the land. The Calusa Queen is
equipped with a restroom and there is water and
soda available for purchase.
While the Burnt Store development is a gated
community, the marina inside is available to all.
Drive to the gate to let security know you're going
on the Calusa Queen.
Prices range from $15 to $30, again depending
on the type of excursion. Private day charters are
priced at $750. The history on the tours is free.
For more information visit
www.CalusaQueen.com or call 941-301-8687.

Thai Caf6: Authentic and fresh


BY BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
I f you want authentic Thai food, come to
Thai Caf6," said Sumitr Ruenprapan, who
has owned the Port Charlotte restaurant in
Baer's Plaza since 2003.
Everything is cooked fresh, using fresh veg-
etables, not frozen, with no MSG. "It's tastier and
healthier,' said Ruenprapan. All the dishes are
cooked to order; nothing is prepared in advance.
"Most of the food is not spicy, but you can
always ask us to make it spicier for you," he said.
The menu directs diners to ask for hot and spicy
by degree 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5.
Pad Thai is one of the customers' favorite
dishes. It's a rice noodle dish with shrimp,
chicken, ground peanuts, egg, scallions and bean
sprouts. The crispy duck is also a favorite at Thai
Cafe. It's served boneless, deep fried, with a
sweet black sauce and mixed vegetables.
Curry dishes are also popular, and Thai Caf6
serves four kinds of curry: red, green, Panang
and Masaman. The type of curry used in each
and the vegetables make for a different taste.
"All curry is a little bit spicy," said
Ruenpranan.
Both red and green curry dishes have bam-
boo shoots, red and green bell peppers, car-
rots, sweet peas, zucchini, and Thai sweet basil.
Masaman curry has potatoes, peanuts, carrots
and onions. Panang is served atop a variety of
mixed vegetables. All the curry dishes have a
coconut milk base. Each type of curry dish can be
served with chicken, pork, beef, shrimp, mussels,


scallops, other seafood or duck.
Ruenprapan's sister, Manee Andrews, cooks
most of the food. She has cooked in Thai
restaurants for over 20 years. Nieces and other
family members also work at the restaurant as
waitresses. As owner and manager, Ruenprapan
steps in whenever and wherever he is needed,
whether to cook or wash dishes.
He came to the U.S. initially in 1979, worked
at Burger King and learned English. In Chicago,
he was a sous chef at a Thai restaurant. Later,
he returned to Thailand and taught at a culinary
school for about five years.
"They needed someone who knew English to
teach Thai cooking to foreigners," he explained.
With his teaching certificate and knowledge of
English, Ruenprapan was the ideal choice. Then
he came back to the U.S., to Port Charlotte, and
opened Thai Caf6.
"Business was slow at first, but has really
picked up by word-of-mouth,' said Ruenprapan.
Thai Caf6 has some unusual specialty dishes.
Thai Caf6 steak is a marinated New York strip
steak served on fried mixed vegetables with a
garlic dip. "Volcano" chicken or shrimp are deep
fried, with chili paste and garlic on vegetables,
served flaming with vodka.
Visit Thai Caf6 is located at 4200 Tamiami Trail,
Port Charlotte.
The restaurant is open for lunch from
11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday. Dinner
is served from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Monday to Thurs-
day and 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Hassle free boating with

Boat Clubs of Florida


JON BAUMANN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Southwest Florida and boating are made
for each other, with the availability of the
Gulf and various inlets within easy access.
However, the cost of owning a boat can be pretty
cost prohibitive for the average Joe.
The Boat Clubs of Florida, located at Harbor at
Lemon Bay Marina, 900 S. McCall Road, Engle-
wood, has the answer to that.
"Many people go golfing but very few
people own a golf course so boating can
be handled in the same way," Owner John
Conarro points out, "Instead of a tee time,
you call for a boat time."
It can be that easy. Join the club, call for a boat,
go out the next day. No fuss, no muss, no wor-
ries. Just call by 4 p.m. the day before and show
up as early as sunrise and go boating.
The club currently has eight boats available at
the Englewood location with affiliation with Boat
Clubs in Fort Myers and Naples, raising the total
to over 30 boats available to members.
'We've never had a day when all the boats
have been out," Conarro notes. "At all three loca-
tions, that never happens."
Fishing activities and pleasure cruises are the
most popular uses for Boat Club members with
boats designed for each. "The nice thing about


a boat club is you can have a husband go out on
Thursday fishing. He will be out with his family on
Saturday on pleasure craft so the usage is about
the same," Conarro said. "Our fishing boats go out
on a regular basis and so does our pleasure craft.
Of the pleasure craft, our deck boats would be
the most popular."
Consider the cost of owning your own boat. "If
a person wants to buy a decent used boat, they're
going to spend probably $15,000, which is a very
conservative number," explained Conarro. "If you
store it in rack storage, like what we've got, it will
cost about $250 a month." Add to that the cost
of insurance and maintenance and the Boat Club
begins to look like a much better alternative for
many people.
"You can get your membership for a lot less.
There's a one time initiation fee. Monthly dues
are $200 a month or $2,400 for the year," Conarro
said. "However, you get a discount of one month
free if you prepay and make it an annual due
instead of a monthly fee." The Boat Club also
offers a seasonal membership, four consecutive
months of boating, if a yearly membership isn't
viable for the boater.
Visit Boat Clubs of Florida at their open house
Saturday being held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
For more information, call 941-258-0022 or
visit www.theboatclubs.com.

Many annuity owners are positioned to lose a significant portion of their annuity's
value to taxes, and most are not even aware of the problem. The IRS is not required

thousands of dollars in income and estate taxes.
A complimentary booklet is available that shows current annuity owners how to avoid
mistakes and possibly save thousands! This complimentary booklet creates an
awareness around the most costly annuity owner mistakes and provides tips and
strategies to help you make the most of your hard-earned assets.
Call (800) 577-0397 today to get your no-cost, no-obligation copy of the 16-page
"Guide to Avoiding Common Annuity Mistakes" and learn how to potentially:
* Avoid paying unnecessary taxes
* Increase your retirement income by properly F


handling your annuity
SAvoid mistakes that could cost you or your
beneficiaries thousands do dollars

Tappercise Dance Troupe will be steppin'

out to raise funds for Tidewell Hospice


STAFF REPORT
The 15th anniversary benefit for Tidewell
Hospice, "Dance Your Dreams for Tidewell
Hospice,' will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday on
the main stage of the Venice Theatre.
Choreographers Sharon deMarc and Maria
Santagada lead this dynamic and talented group
of senior Tappers from Venice and the surround-
ing area. The troupe's high-energy song-and-
dance variety show will be "Puttin' On The Ritz,"
with local vocal artists and plenty of showstopping
dance numbers.
All proceeds benefitTidewell Hospice.
Tappercise's ongoing support helps Tidewell
sustain its innovative programs and services.


Tidewell continues to be honored to be the
beneficiary of this type of ongoing community
support.
DeMarc began the Dancing for Hospice tradi-
tion after Tidewell cared for her mother, Flory
Meyrowitz. Having been a Tappercise dancer,
Meyrowitz asked her daughter to express her
gratitude by producing a show that would con-
tinue to contribute proceeds to Tidewell.
The Tappercise Troupe has delighted commu-
nity patrons for the past 14 years, and this year's
performance promises to be just as memorable.
Catch the rhythm and purchase your $15 tickets
at the Venice Theatre box office, 140 W. Tampa
Ave., Venice, by calling 941-488-1115 or
www.venicestage.com.

When bones

of blood,
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I
was diagnosed with avascu-
lar necrosis in June of 2011.
No one will help me or give
me information on this
condition. I cannot afford
medical insurance. I am 68
and living on Social Security
income. Doctors refuse to
take me as a patient. I need
to know what the prognosis
will be if this is left untreat-
ed. C.S.
ANSWER: Avascular
necrosis also goes by the
name osteonecrosis. It
indicates that a section of
bone has died due to a loss
of its blood supply. It's the
bone's equivalent of a heart
attack. Diabetes, prolonged
use of cortisone drugs and
illnesses like lupus, trauma
and sickle cell disease are
some of the ailments seen
in association with it. In
some people, a cause can't
be found; it just happens.
If only a small section of
bone is involved, the bone
might regenerate in time.
Patients often use crutches
until that happens. For
larger areas of bone, that
section of bone collapses
and becomes painful. Some
intervention is needed.
Removing the dead bone is
helpful in healing. A proce-
dure called decompression
is favored by some doctors.
Tiny holes are dilled into
the bone to stimulate blood
vessel growth. Replace-
ment of an affected joint is
another possibility. The hip
joint is a case in point.
Have you explained your
situation to Medicare? You're
eligible for it. Do so. Call
local hospitals to see if they
sponsor clinics that provide
services for minimum fees.
You live not far from large
cities with medical schools;
contact them to inquire if
they will accept your case.
Call your county medical
society and see if it can offer
you help.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I
am a 62-year-old male and
have been very active my
entire adult life. I have rid-
den more than 2,000 miles
this year on a racing bike.
Then I suddenly devel-
oped intermittent cardiac
arrhythmias and a few
bouts of atrial fibrillation.
I now have a cardiologist,
who performed a battery
of tests without discover-
ing a reason why I have
developed the rhythm
problem. I take medicines
to suppress the abnormal
beating. I still experience
irregular heartbeats in the
evenings when I work out
aerobically during the day.
The atrial fibrillation epi-
sodes are so disruptive that
I cannot sleep. I can't help
wondering if intensive
exercising for decades has
promoted the problem. Do
other treatment options
exist? -W.B.


are deprived

,they die

Dr. Donohue
Readers may
write Dr
Donohue at
PO. Box
536475,
Orlando,
FL 32853-6475
ANSWER: Atrial fibrilla-
tion is the most common
heartbeat disturbance. It's
a fast and completely ir-
regular beat that throws off
the heart's pumping action
and lays the groundwork
for clot formation in the
heart's upper chambers, the
atria. Heart clots or pieces of
them can find their way into
the circulation and be swept
into a brain artery, where
they cause a stroke.
If you're still having
episodes of atrial fibrillation,
you have to let your heart
doctor know. He will want to
change your medicines. Or
he might have to put you on
blood thinners (anticoagu-
lants) to prevent clot forma-
tion. Or he might consider
you a candidate for ablative
therapy, a procedure that
destroy the tissues in the
upper heart chambers that
generate atrial fibrillation.
If the episodes are occur-
rences of premature beats,
the situation isn't all that
pressing. Former intensive
exercise did not cause your
problem.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
In March of last year, I was
found passed out on the
floor. When I woke up about
a month later, they said I
was toxic and had sepsis.
What is that? C.M.
ANSWER: Sepsis is
invasion of the blood with
bacteria that produce
toxins (poisons). That's the
"toxic" part. Bacteria find
their way into the blood in
many ways. They can enter
the blood if there's a minor
breach in the colon, which
houses millions of bacteria.
Or something like a boil
can spread bacteria into the
blood. Or a cut so minor
that you paid no attention
to it can allow bacteria ac-
cess to the blood.
The bacteria and their
toxins cause a profound
drop in blood pressure.
That's probably what landed
you on the floor. Toxins can
lead to the failure of impor-
tant organs liver, kidneys,
heart and lungs. Septic
shock, your illness, carries
a high risk of death. Only
through the intravenous
infusion of antibiotics and
medicines that keep organs
alive and working do pa-
tients survive this harrowing
and deadly illness. Whoever
took care of you deserves
praise for the wonderful
outcome you had in the
face of a lethal condition.

Put a chill in hot soup


Dear Heloise: When-
ever I make soup, espe-
cially for kids, it is usually
too hot to eat right away.
I typically put one or two
ice cubes in the bowl to
help cool the soup down.
You also can add frozen
veggies, the kids can stir,
and before they realize it,
the soup is cool enough
for them to enjoy!
- Susan D., via email
I love soup, and it's such
a good way to feed a crowd
on a budget. If you have
leftover soup, pour it into
ice-cube trays and freeze
for later. Soup is one of the
only hearty meals that can
take just minutes to heat
up and serve. If you like
Chicken Noodle, Chicken
Tortilla or French Onion
soup, I have these yummy
family recipes and more
(along with soup hints)
in my Heloise's Spectacu-
lar Soups pamphlet. To
receive your own copy,
please send $5 and a long,
self-addressed, stamped
(65 cents) envelope to:
Heloise/Soup, PO. Box
795001, San Antonio,
TX 78279-5001. To save
money, buy ingredients
on sale, make big batches
of your favorite soup and
freeze in smaller portions
for a quick meal. Heloise

Crisp veggies
Dear Heloise: If you
want to keep carrots crisp,
leave them whole and dip
in water. Shake off the
excess water and put back
in a plastic bag. They will
stay crisp for at least a
week.


BABY BLUES By Rick Kirkman and Jerry Scott


Hints from Heloise

In the case of celery, rinse
it in the plastic bag it was
bought in. There are usually
holes in the bottom of these
bags that let the major-
ity of the water drain out.
Then place the bag with the
celery in the crisper, where
it will stay crisp for about
a week. Check it once in a
while, rinse again, and the
celery will revive. Take this
from an old produce man.
This works on other veggies
as well.
I like the flavor carrots
and celery give to soups.
Use your mandoline to
slice the veggies thin
enough to see through,
and put them in soups or
gravies. When cooked this
way, they melt out of sight
but leave behind their fla-
vor. George in Nebraska

Kitchen hint
Dear Heloise: If you
don't have any kitchen or
food shears, try tinsnips.
The idea came to me
while trying to remove the
backbone of a chicken.
I washed them first, and
they worked great! I was
able to cut right through
those bones. Patsy E.,
Port Deposit, Md.

Couple's miracle baby is

causing husband disbelief


DEAR ABBY: I married
"Andy" a year ago. He
has three children from a
prior marriage. He had a
vasectomy eight years ago,
but promised he'd have it
reversed so we could have
a child together. He didn't
get around to it, but I'm
pregnant anyway.
At first we felt it was our
miracle baby. However, 15
weeks later, Andy is now
"sure" the baby isn't his.
Things have gotten so bad
that I moved out of our
house.
Abby, I have NEVER
been unfaithful. A pater-
nity test will prove he's the
father, but that can't be
done until after our baby
is born. I have scheduled
an appointment with a
therapist, but I'm not sure I
want to reconcile with him.
Have other readers been
in this situation? What was
the outcome? PREG-
NANT AND ALONE ON
THE EAST COAST
DEAR PREGNANT AND
ALONE: Yes, other readers
have been in your situa-
tion. In those cases, the
vasectomy had somehow
reversed itself without
surgery. (Perhaps it wasn't
done properly in the first
place.) Your husband
should consult a urologist
and have his sperm levels
checked. It could provide
the "proof" he's looking for
a lot sooner than your due
date.
Because this has been
emotionally devastating
for you which is under-
standable talking with a
therapist will be beneficial
regardless of what you de-
cide about your marriage.
DEAR ABBY: My step-
son, "David," lives with
my husband and me and
our 9-year-old son. He is
20 and has been with us
since he was a child be-
cause his mother couldn't
control him. He had major
problems in school--
detentions, failing grades,
etc. and has been noth-
ing but trouble. David is
disrespectful, a chronic liar
and a thief. He has even
threatened to kill us.
David's mother bought
him a car and his grand-
mother gives him money
to buy anything he wants
- including guns. He
won't get a driver's license,


Dear Abby

refuses to get a job, won't
help around the house
and lies to people, saying
we don't feed him. He has
even said his dad beats
him every day.
I want my husband to
give David a choice: Get his
license, get a job and help
around the house, or get
out, but my husband re-
fuses. His excuse is, where
will he go?
My husband works out
of town occasionally, and
when he's gone I have our
9-year-old sleep with me
and I lock the door because
I'm afraid of David. What
can we do? AFRAID OF
MY STEPSON
DEAR AFRAID: Because
your husband is unwill-
ing to assert his authority,
there's nothing you can do.
Since he can't or won't get
his son the help he needs,
for YOUR son's safety you
should make other living
arrangements.
The situation you have
described is dangerous
because David has ac-
cess to weapons. Was he
ever given a psychologi-
cal evaluation? If not, he
should have one as a
condition of continuing
to stay with you and his
father. It may provide you
with some sorely needed
insight because you need
more help than I or
anyone can offer in a
letter. Without professional
help for him, I predict that
your stepson will wind up
in trouble with the law.
DEAR ABBY: At what
point is a person con-
sidered to be addicted to
prescription drugs?
- BORDERLINE IN
SOUTH CAROLINA
DEAR BORDERLINE:
When the person increases
the dosage beyond what
has been prescribed, lies
about it and/or tries to
get the drugs by devious
means.


"For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but
righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost."
Romans 14:17.

recent Fall
Championships
deal is from
Board-a-Match


with hands from the
North American
held in Seattle. This
the Mitchell Open
team event. Sitting


South and declaring was Sid
Brownstein.
East's two-diamond opening bid
was Flannery, showing four spades
and five hearts with a minimum
opening bid. West attacked with a
heart to the king and ace. East cashed
the ace of diamonds on which West
played a middle card, and reverted to
a heart, on which declarer discarded
the king of diamonds to eliminate the
risk of a diamond ruff. A successful
club finesse allowed declarer to wrap
up the doubled contract for a score of
730 points.
Neither defender shone. East could
have returned a low spade at trick
three probably the only high card
his partner could hold which would
allow the contract to be set was the
king of trumps. And West could have
dropped the knave of diamonds
under the ace to suggest an unusual
return, here a trump!
