Pit bull attacks, kills dog


By JOSH TAYLOR
WWSB ABC 7

AVenice woman's small dog was
attacked and killed by a pit bull Sunday.
Authorities issued citations, but nearby
residents say they are living in fear.
Sunday, Jeanne Menendez was
walking her mother's dog, Louie, down
their Venice neighborhood street.
"I look to my right and the next
thing I know here comes this pit


bull," she said.
She said that Louie, a 12-pound
rat terrier, didn't stand a chance.
"He just came and grabbed onto
my mother's dog and he just bit into
him and shook him," she said. "He
killed my dog."
Menendez said her 90-year-old
mother, Jean Dawn, is heartbroken.
Louie had belonged to one of her
other daughters who recently passed
away.


"This was just a little crate-trained
dog," Menendez said. "It gave her
a sense of purpose to get up in the
morning. We walked the dog three
times a day."
According to a Venice Police
Department report, citations were
issued by Sarasota County Animal
Services. A knock on the door of
the home where the dog lives was

Firefighters battle simultaneous blazes


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

The city of Venice fire
department responded to
two simultaneous fire alarms
Friday evening. A restaurant
office fire caused minor dam-
age, while a mobile home
suffered extensive damage.
No injuries were reported in
either fire.
"Holy cow," said VFD Chief
John Reed, "It was crazy."
The first call came in at
9:18 p.m. Friday to 916W.
Inagua Ave. in the Bay Indies
Mobile Home Park.
According to Reed, the own-
ers had just returned home
when their neighbors saw
flames coming from their golf
cart, which was plugged in to
recharge its battery.
"The unit was fully
involved," Reed said. "All of
our units were at Bay Indies.
We saved the back half of
the home and the homes on
either side."
Then came a call from 625
South Tamiami Trail a half
hour later, at 9:51 p.m., from
the Island Sun Inn.
Reed took two engines
to the island fire. Sarasota
County and Nokomis volun-
teers also responded.
A minor fire in an office
off the hotel restaurant was
quickly extinguished.
Officials are unsure how it
began, but think it started in a
bin in the office.
The incident drew the atten-
tion of code enforcement.
The restaurant was cited in
October for work completed
without a permit and the fact
a business tax receipt wasn't
filed. All applicable permits
and business tax receipt had
been applied for by Monday,


A Bay Indies home on Inagua Avenue is a total loss after one of two fires the Venice Fire Department fought simul-
taneously Friday evening.


said Vince LaPorta, building
official for the city of Venice.
Pending a life-safety inspec-
tion, the restaurant should be
back in business shortly.
Fire units were at the Bay
Indies fire until 1 a.m. Sat-
urday morning, and had to
be called back later that day
when the home began to
smoke again.
Two fires. No injuries.
"Everything went well,"
Reed said. "As far as deploy-
ment, there were no problems
with the assistance from our
other agencies. It went very
smooth."

The Venice Planning Com-
mission, which hasn't had
many land use petitions during
the past few years, considered
five on Tuesday.
Two are related to new cot-
tages planned as an addition
to Village On The Isle on the
island, while three pertained
to the planned Plaza Venezia
development, anchored by a
Publix supermarket, on Laurel
Road.
The board approved a waiver


petition fromVenetian design
standards with stipulations,
and a site and development
plan for seven new KeyWest
bungalow "cottages" atVOTI.
Attorney Greg Roberts,
representing VOTI, said the
waiver was needed to assure
the cottages appear as part of
its distinct campus.
VOTI wants to purchase 3.2
acres owned by Grace United
Methodist Church and develop
.89 acres for seven cottages as
transition housing for residents
that are more independent but
do not yet require the level of


assistance provided in other
areas of the facility.
The lot currently holds a bus
barn used for storage by the
Boy Scout Troop 77 and Cub
Scout Pack 77, sponsored by
the church, and a parsonage
previously used by the assistant
pastor. Both will be demolished.
The commission approved
the waiver 4-2, although
it raised some concerns
about maintaining the city's
ambience.
Even those who voted against
it (Shaun Graser and Sid
Shrauger) said the architectural


drawings are impressive, just
not in the required Northern
Italian architectural style.
Their concern is that by
granting this waiver they're
continuing to erode the city's
design standards.
"We are saying we will not
put Northern Italian style in
this area because it's incon-
sistent with what already is
nonconforming. There is a
rationale here that is not very
useful to us.
"If we continue (granting

County


weighs


options


for $6M


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

The $6 million windfall that
county government unex-
pectedly realized at the end
of the last fiscal year was due
to a combination of factors.
Several offices, including that
of Sarasota County Sheriff Tom
Knight, came in under budget.
Also, revenue the county gen-
erated exceeded the budget.
County officials budget
95 percent of their anticipated
revenue, per state statute, so
it is common for local govern-
ments to collect more than
budgeted.
But what will they do with
the windfall?
When considering how to
distribute the $6 million, this
year or in the future, the board
has a number of options. Some
are more likely than others.
Commissioners' choices, when
they meet at 9 a.m. Thursday
at the Sarasota County Admin-
istration Center, 1660 Ringling
Blvd., Sarasota, to discuss
the 2012-13 county budget,
include:

By STEVEN J. SMITH
SUN CORRESPONDENT

The Sarasota County School
Board voted 4-1 Tuesday to
approve a charter school
application for State College
of Florida to create a collegiate
high school on its South Venice
campus.
School Board Member Carol
Todd cast the lone "nay" vote.
Although the application
was approved, the actual
contract must still be nego-
tiated and approved by the
school board and the SCF
board. If ultimately approved,

Prescription drug abuse trends


seesaw


By DREW WINCHESTER
STAFF WRITER
State and federal
authorities claim the so-
called pill-mill legislation
enacted last year in Flor-
ida has had a dramatic
effect on the amount of
oxycodone being sold
around the state.
The Drug Enforcement
Administration reported
this year that sales of the
drug declined 97 per-
cent between 2010 and
2011 in Florida, in part
because the nation's top
prescribers of oxycodone
were stripped of their
power. Florida held 90 of
the top 100 prescribers,
the DEA reported.
Sarasota County was
once one of Florida's
hotbeds of pill-mill
action, but those num-
bers have decreased
after an exodus of
many doctors who were
abusing the system,

BY THE NUMBERS
Oxycodone-related deaths in
Florida in 2010:
1,516 deaths caused by oxyco-
done across Florida.
Oxycodone deaths increased
27.9 percent, compared with
2009.
Sarasota County had 111 total
deaths caused by or related to
oxycodone.

authorities said.
Sgt. Audrey Kasper,
who works in the Phar-
maceutical Diversion
Investigative Unit of the
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office, added that the
decline is due to Sara-

doctors and the pills
they distribute, making
it much more difficult, if
not impossible, to easily
hand over pills to their
so-called patients.
Kasper did say that
Sarasota residents sim-
ply can travel outside
county limits to get their
prescriptions filled, or
visit other doctors. But
year over year, sales are


down in Sarasota County
and the community has
realized that oxycodone
abuse is a significant
public health issue.
"We've definitely taken
steps in the right direc-
tion," Kasper added.
A decrease in sales
isn't enough to stem the
tide of prescription drug
abuse, according to offi-
cials at Southwest Florida
Addiction Services in


Fort Myers.
Alex Garcia, who
works in the detox facil-
ity, said treatment has
to be part of the larger
picture when talking
about fighting the prob-
lem, because addicts will
just gravitate to another
substance.
Use of oxycodone has
decreased among those
seeking detox services at
the agency, but it hasn't


seen a decrease in the
number of detox patients
overall.
Closing the pill mills
and increasing law
enforcement just aren't
enough, Garcia said.
"Unless we take a com-
prehensive approach,
they will just switch from
one drug to the next," he
said.

teaming up with Venice
Beach Pavilion Conces-
sions to provide the


popular beach equip-
ment rentals.
Seven days weekly
they deliver, set up and
pick up rented beach
or baby equipment at
any beach or residence
in Venice, Nokomis and
Englewood.
"No need to carry
all your things to the
beach," said Pierce. "Just
show up between 10 a.m.
and 6 p.m. to rent your
cabanas or equipment.
The last few weekends
we have been sold out by
noon."
Lounges, beach chairs,
camp chairs, umbrel-
las, tents, shark's tooth
shovels, toys, games,
skimboards, bodyboards


and snorkels are avail-
able, and soon metal
detectors will be offered.
Reservations can be
made online at www.
SunnytimeRentals.com
or by phone at 941-
375-8333, but for only
the first five cabanas.
The remaining five are
provided on a first-come,
first-served basis.
The Pierce family came
from Henryville, Ind., to
Venice seven years ago.
She was development
director for the South
Venice Civic Association
for two years and then
opened a store selling
homemade crafts and
novelties prior to launch-
ing their beach and baby


equipment rentals last
year. It was Doug's idea
to offer delivery to the
airport, home and beach.
Recently they were
approached by the Ven-
ice Pavilion concession-
aire asking if they could
help him out on the
weekend because many
beachgoers were asking
to rent equipment. Sun-
nytime Rentals did a trial
run, which proved to be
a big success.
"People staying at local
hotels don't want to buy
beach equipment, and
visitors are thrilled at our
very convenient service,"
Paige said.

Buy healthful treats for man's best friend


"We sell treats made
with no preservatives,
dyes or sugars, baked for
cats and dogs by a local
lady," said Mary Reyn-
olds, who has opened
BFF Pet Boutique, 209 W
Miami Ave.
Additional items avail-
able at BFF (Best Friends
Forever) include novelty
accessories, hand towels,
picture frames, cards,
collars, leashes, clothing,
toys, candles, dishes and

administrator for 10
years. Retiring to Florida
with her husband, she
opened Brenda's Bou-
tique in Fort Myers,
selling island and cruise
wear.
The owner of three
dogs, she visited Venice,
liked the small-town
atmosphere and decided
to open the pet store.
"I always had a dream
about something that
makes you happy, a pet
boutique," she said.
The shop is open
11 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday
through Saturday. Call

Restaurant
opening
"We're hoping to open
next week," said Alex
Diferdinando, co-owner
of Made In Italy restau-
rant, 117 W.Venice Ave.,
in the former Jackson's
American Grill.
The centerpiece in
the dining room is the
wood-burning oven,
which cooks yard-long


pizzas in minutes at 850
degrees. There is seating
for 84 diners at tables
along the sidewalk, on
the rear patio and at
booths in the restaurant
and the new community

Stylist moves
"Moving to a smaller,
cozier environment, I
wanted a little bit of a
change, but will never
forget my roots," said
Sheryl Hendricks, who
recently joined Ciao
Bella Salon, 339W.
Venice Ave.
Hendricks, who spe-
cializes in coloring and
men's hair-cutting, joins
salon owner Karen Shep-
pard and six stylists.
Graduating school
in Vernon Valley, N.J.,
Hendricks taught
snowboarding up north
and assisted a brother
doing dog grooming in
family-owned pet stores
for almost 10 years.


Wanting a change 10
years ago, she came to
Venice and attended
styling school.
Working in the James
Griffith Salon for five
years, she visited New
York for special train-
ing in hair coloring and
men's hair-cutting. For
the past six years she
has taught techniques of
coloring and cutting to
newer stylists.
Call 941-488-4892.

where the sun shines
in Florida and not just
at the beach, so she
named her new business
Sunkissed Realty, 221 W
Venice Ave.
"I am a one-woman
show," she said, "but I
am looking to employ
additional Realtors."
She works from Tampa
to Fort Myers, but pri-

Economy kills hotel development projects


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

There is absolutely
no appetite for vertical
construction of hos-
pitality properties at
this time, said Henry
Rodriguez recently,
queried about his plans,
announced in Novem-
ber 2005, to bring a
luxury condominium
hotel to Nokomis fol-
lowing the widening of
U.S. 41. In the current
commercial develop-
ment climate the proj-
ect is not viable and the
land is for sale.
Rodriguez had
acquired five acres of
land on the northwest
corner of West Albee
Road West and U.S. 41,
formerly home to a gas
station and Nokomis
Septic. The buildings
were demolished and
Sarasota County had
upgraded and enhanced
Albee Road, making

The planned gateway to Nokomis Beach and Casey Key at West
Albee Road, Nokomis, remains undeveloped. Plans for hotels on
both sides of the road and a condo development farther west
have been shelved due to the economy.


it a pedestrian- and
biker-friendly gateway
to Nokomis Beach and
Casey Key. But the proj-
ect never went forward.
No activity has taken
place across the street,
either, where Finergy
Development of Sara-
sota had plans for a


similar $18 million
project to construct
a Hilton Garden Inn
with retail stores and
residential units on the
southwest corner of
Albee Road West.
The development had
been given an 18-month
extension by Sarasota


County in July 2009. At
that time sentiments
similar to Rodriguez'
were expressed by Eric
Collins, Finergy executive
vice president.
"Unfortunately, in this
area hotel occupancy
numbers continue to
be down 30 percent this
year compared to last
year," he said.
Collins has not
returned calls seeking an
update on the project's
status.
Rodriquez sold the
front parcel of his land
to the former Colo-
nial Bank but it went
untouched and for some
time has been for sale
again.
Adjoining acreage to
the west was destined to
be a distinctive luxury
condominium hotel
courting vacationers
with a village architec-
tural theme, possibly in
a bohemian style devel-
oped with input from


community leaders. That
project fell through as
well.
On the island, the area
east of the shuttered BP
gas station on Business
41 alongside the Venice
Avenue Bridge is a relic
of the mid-2000s boom
period. The $8 million
four-story waterside
Tra Ponti complex was
projected to provide
employment for 150
in a 228-room hotel,
a 250-seat restaurant
and first-floor retail
stores, with residential
and parking garages,
but it got hung up with
permitting and plan-
ning delays and became
another victim of the
recession.
In the last several years
the demand for vaca-
tion space has remained
off as tourism suffered
due to the economy. It
may be improving this
year, but not enough to
encourage developers.


Although local policy-
makers and commu-
nity leaders still see a
need for extended-stay
hotels in the area, the
financial risk appears is
still too great. However,
upgrades of existing
properties have become
popular. Bentley's Resort
Hotel in Osprey is the
product of a $3.5 million
makeover and upgrad-
ing of the former
Osprey Inn. The new
Sarasota owners of the
former Holiday Hotel
on the north bypass are
spending $2 million to
$3 million to upgrade
and completely renovate
it to open this year as
the 167-room Ramada
Venice.
Recently, the former
Days Inn reopened
following substantial
renovations as the Venice
Palm Inn, 1710 South
Tamiami Trail.

STEMsmart Summit excites students


By ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER
On Saturday, 220 area
middle and high school
students spent the day at
State College of Florida's
Venice campus as part
of a fun and educational
science and technology
summit, to which Gulf
Coast Community Foun-
dation played host.
The STEMsmart
Summit, part of the
STEMsmart initiative, cul-
minated STEMsmart week,
which ran Feb. 13-18.
The initiative, made
possible by a five-year,
$2.5 million grant from
GCCF, aims to increase
student participation
and inspire them to
seek careers in science,
technology, engineering
and math. Students from
eight schools Laurel


Nokomis, Venice, Heron
Creek, Woodland and
L.A. Ainger middle
schools; and Venice,
North Port and Lemon
Bay high schools -
signed up for four
hour-long classes focus-
ing on different STEM
concepts.
Before that, however,
students were addressed
by Salim Ismail, a Silicon
Valley entrepreneur and
strategist who, among
many accomplishments,
was a vice president at
Yahoo!. He gave a short
presentation about
emerging technologies,
including 3-D printers,
robots that display emo-
tion and vehicles that
drive themselves.
"Today, if you can
conceive of a subject,
you can build it," he said,
adding that the cost of


technology is dropping
so dramatically that it
is more affordable than
ever. "Your life will be
so utterly different from
your parents' lives that
they won't even recog-
nize it."
"This entire initiative
is very, very important,"
he said, adding that
technology will help
solve big issues fac-
ing humanity, and that
today's young people
will think of things their
parents and grandpar-
ents could never envi-
sion. "STEM is critical.
This is the basis for
all employment in the
future."
The class sessions
were scattered about
the SCF campus. In
one lab, middle school
students listened as
SCF professor Jose Ors


explained how fireworks
are made.
"They pack the tubes
with different kinds
of salts based on what
colors they want," he
said, sending pairs of
students to stations
where they applied small
amounts of different
salts lithium, copper
nitrate, potassium and
sodium to an open
flame. Lithium burned
red, copper green. At
one station, VMS sixth-
graders Kelton Rade-
feld, 12, and Christian
Seiders, 11, watched
the flame change colors
as they burned copper,
lithium and potassium
at the same time.
"I wonder if that's how
they made the differ-
ent lightsaber colors in
Star Wars?" Christian
pondered.


Ors told students that
astronomers also note
the colors of stars in the
sky.
"That's how they know
what elements they are
made from," he said.
Other sessions offered
students the chance to
determine which STEM
career might best fit
them, to explore micro-
scopic organisms in
pond water, to learn
how math is used in
architecture, to simu-
late the transmission of
infectious diseases, to
learn more about rescu-
ing and rehabilitating
marine life, or to use
3-D design software to
create and print their
own designs on SCF's
3-D printer.
In the "DNA Finger-
printing-Crime Scene
Investigation" session,


SCF adjunct instruc-
tor Aron Lemon had
students testing DNA
samples.
Asked what she wanted
to learn most Saturday,
Anna Sand-Lambert, 12,
a sixth-grader at Laurel
Nokomis, quietly whis-
pered "this" as Lemon
began to explain the gel
electrophoresis process.

OUR VIEW



Here's a tip: Don't stiff the wait staff


Next time you stop at Denny's for
a Grand Slam, take a good look
at the waitress hustling to keep
the coffee cups filled and ask yourself
if you think she deserves a pay cut.
Not likely.
That's why a bill that passed
through the Senate Commerce and
Tourism Committee last week appears
destined for a short shelf life: Just
imagine what happens when a large
and sympathetic group of hard-work-
ing men and women who are in close
contact with a very large group of vot-
ers gets worked up over a pocketbook
issue. Want some fries with that?
The bill (SB 2106) would allow
restaurants to pay tipped employees
$2.52 less per hour, while setting up
what essentially is a higher safety net
for wait staff.
Is it a valid idea? Maybe. But that
doesn't make it a good one. And it is


very, very unlikely to be a popular one.
As committee chair Sen. Nancy
Detert, R-Venice, acknowledged while
voting in support: "This is a thorny
issue. It calls for a little bit of bravery
and boldness and statesmanship.
As politicians, this is not in our best
interest to do something that looks
like we're hurting employees."
And this certainly does appear to do
that.
The bill, drafted by the Florida Res-
taurant and Lodging Association, is
designed to help restaurants save on
labor costs by giving them the option
of paying the federal minimum
wage for tipped workers ($2.13 an
hour) instead of the state's minimum
(currently $4.65). In return, restau-
rants that opted into this structure
would have to guarantee employees
earned $9.98 an hour, tips and wages
included.


On the face of it, it might be a
decent deal for some servers. It might
help busboys and assistants who get
less from the tip jar. It might also aid
all wait staff during slower times of
the year.
But there are bigger questions.
The Restaurant Association main-
tains that restaurants need help
because they are folding under the
burden of paying workers an extra
$2.52 per hour. But some data refute
that idea. According to the state
Department of Economic Opportunity,
the restaurant and bar industry added
23,500 jobs last year. The National
Restaurant Association forecasts a
17 percent growth rate in Florida in
the coming decade. And while Detert
noted that 51 restaurants in our area
had closed in recent years, it's hard to
say what other factors contributed to
their demise. The Great Recession has


been tough on all businesses.
Then there's the fact that Floridians
voted by a 3-to-1 margin in 2004 for a
constitutional amendment that estab-
lished state minimum wages above
the federal level, indexed to inflation.
People support the idea of higher
minimums. Have attitudes changed
that much in eight years?
Data also show the median wage
for Florida servers last year was $9 an
hour. Yes, the bill would give those
below the median an opportunity to
make a little more on average. But
what about those above the median?
For most it would mean a straight
$2.52 an hour pay cut. Simple as that.
The Commerce Committee passed
the bill in a 5-1 vote, but members
seemed skeptical. Detert herself
acknowledged the bill was unlikely to
get anywhere this session.
All in all, that's for the best.


Betsy speaks


I promised my friend Earl
Midlam I'd use this week's col-
umn to let Old Betsy, the city's
first fire engine, tell her history.
Here it is:
"I arrived in Moore Haven,
Fla., Sept. 9, 1926, to begin
my work as a firefighter in this
small town on the shores of
Lake Okeechobee. But things
changed Sept. 18, 1926, when
the Great Miami Hurricane
came through. The simple
mud dike that was around the
lake broke, and Moore Haven
was flooded with about 15 feet
of water. That put me under
water too. Somewhere between
150 and 300 people died.
"The town was struggling to
survive in many ways, includ-
ing financially, and I was
purchased by the Brotherhood
of Locomotive Engineers. The
Brotherhood relocated me to
a town named Venice, situated
on the Gulf of Mexico, and I
first came to Venice on Nov. 4,
1926. Not long after, in 1927,
the Brotherhood incorporated
Venice as a city. I was the first
firetruck.
"It was an exciting time.
The city grew and grew. The
Brotherhood brought many
visitors to Venice, including
Thomas Edison, and we were
introduced.
"So many things have hap-
pened, and so much history
has passed. The plans of the
Brotherhood, which brought
me to Venice, didn't survive the
Great Depression. But new life
came. The Kentucky Military
Institute, a school for young
men, opened its winter quar-
ters here in Venice. Venice also
had an army air base and flyers
were trained here.
"I was the only firetruck in
town until 1949, when the
army air base left and the
government gave the city two
trucks that joined me in pro-
tecting the city.
"Then this placed turned into
a circus literally. Ringling
Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Cir-
cus announced on Christmas
Eve, 1959 that it was moving
its winter quarters to Venice. In
1962, the Army Corps of Engi-
neers began the construction


of the Intracoastal Waterway,
which made Venice an "island."
"In the late 1960s I retired,
but only as far as firefight-
ing was concerned. I can still
pump that water, but other
trucks that came along could
do it better, and the well-being
of the citizens in the city is
very important to me.
"I began a new job as an
ambassador for the city of Ven-
ice. So many great things to do!
I entered contests at firetruck
competitions and even won a
few. Not bad for an old gal.
"Fifty years ago, I started
leading the Venice Lions Club
Halloween Parade every year.
Running in parades is one of
my favorite things to do. I've
been in parades in Fort Myers
(celebrating that guy Edison's
birthday), St. Petersburg (the
bridge is a little scary), Sara-
sota, Bradenton and, of course,
Venice, just to name a few.
"My favorite parade has
been the Venice Holiday
Parade, which was started in
1976. I began just carrying
Santa Claus and a few of the
children who would come
down to the avenue, and later,
as the parade grew, I carried
dignitaries and our city council
members. I just love the chil-
dren who would wave at me.
"I take my job as ambassa-
dor for the city of Venice quite
seriously. I have had a little
work done on me from time to
time, and I want to thank Chief
Dewey Stephens, Chief Harry
Sjoblom, Chief Bud Divine,
Chief Gordon Struble Sr., Chief
Ted Deming, Chief Jim Culbert,
Chief J.M. Keys, Chief John
Reed, Glenn Stephens, Gaylord
George and Earl Midlam, for
taking their time to take care
of me and to make sure I was
provided for.
"But I've recently had the
makeover of my lifetime. I
took a trip, on a transport, to
Daytona Beach, where a cor-
poration named PRIDE totally
remade me. I cannot thank
enough the workers at PRIDE,
as well as the citizens who
donated their time and money
for my makeover.
"I maybe 85 years old, but
I'm looking forward to spend-
ing another 85 years here in
Venice, riding in the parades
and continuing my work as
an ambassador for the city. Be
sure to wave at me when you
see me!"
Speaking of parades, we still
need boats for the boat parade.
Call me!

Coexistence. No large show
like Cirque du Soleil has come
to Sarasota County this far
because there isn't a large
enough facility. The Circus
Arena could accommodate the
Cirque du Soleil, and it prob-
ably would come to a 5,000-
seat arena. There's no competi-
tion between the performing
arts center and the arena;
they're two separate venues
and they can coexist. Each can
do what it needs to do for the
community.
Anti-septic. Pollution
around our waterways is com-
ing from the sewage from the
homes that still have septic
tanks in their back yards.
They're draining into our
tributaries, which are draining
into our beach. Up in Osprey
and in South Venice there's a
great deal of this going on, and
so on down the waterways.
Check it out.
Stay low. I'm calling about
utility rates set by Venice City
Council. With this economy,
and with senior citizens, I think
we should keep them as low as
we can. And please don't give
away any more money to non-
profit organizations. We need it
in our own backyard. We need
to take care of our own people,
United States citizens. And God
bless America.
No tanks. Here in Venice
we have a number of houses
between Harbor Drive and the
Gulf that certainly seep sewage
into the ground. They were not
hooked up to the public sewer
system. Especially in season,
these houses' leach fields are
at capacity. The solution is
to force the owners to hook
up to the system. New leach
fields only delay the correct
solution to the problem. This
may require court orders or
financial incentives and would
certainly require monitoring to
assure compliance. We do not
need any more dye testing or
other kinds of proof. We only
need more common sense.


Let 'em


Have It
Bird bay. Causes for pollu-
tion on our beaches? It seems
ironic that other beaches
where very few people swim,
such as in front of the condos,
you don't have this problem.
Could one therefore assume
maybe the beachgoers that
come on Venice Beach are
causing it? How about feeding
the birds popcorn? How about
dropping bits of sandwiches
from their lunch? Why not
post a couple of signs saying
please, please, please do not
feed the birds and be sure to
pick up any lunch scraps? It
does cause water contamina-
tion. Logically, my argument is
soundproof.
Bad news. Now that the
economy is on the upswing,
what will the Republicans
choose to continue their attack
on Obama? They must have
hated to see the news.
Sharing. I appreciate the
people riding on our roads
who want to get some exercise,
but you have to share the road
with us. You can't ride four or
five abreast across the road
and get angry with us and give
us the one-fingered salute
when we're trying to get to


work. The roads are meant for
everybody, and you have your
own bike paths. I don't drive
my truck in your bike paths, so
how about a little bit of cour-
tesy for us people who are just
trying to go to work?
Little guys. I went down
Jacaranda and back down Cen-
ter cops. But who are they
waiting for? They weren't wait-
ing for any SCAT buses, any
school buses and tow trucks,
any UPS trucks, any trucks
that have businesses on them,
any city trucks that were meter
readers that are going 50-plus
mph. Who are they waiting
for? Us. Just the taxpayer the
little guy. And, you know, we're
kinda getting sick of watching
these other trucks zoom by.
Chinatown. I would like
to raise two points about
your editorial endorsing the
bypass's expansion. If there
is no money to fund the
southern section, then any
bottleneck problem will not
be solved. Businesses do not
overwhelmingly endorse the
expansion. Thirty-four mer-
chants located along the route
signed a petition opposing the
expansion. However, your sug-
gestion to drop the issue has
merit. I'm thinking about that
movie line, "Forget it Jake, it's
Chinatown."

Where is the Cal Ripken Academy?


PAT ROUNDS AND
CATHY ANTUNES
GUEST COLUMNISTS

On July 22, 2009, the
Sarasota County Com-
mission signed a long-
term contract with the
Baltimore Orioles to
renovate Ed Smith Sta-
dium for Spring Training
games, financed at public
expense for $31.2 million.
That contract included
Section 14, entitled Youth
Baseball Academy and
Facilities. The following
statements are part of
Section 14:
14.1. The Parties
acknowledge that it is
mutually beneficial to
facilitate the establish-
ment of a youth baseball
academy and youth
tournaments, serving
both the Greater Sarasota
region and players and
teams from other areas.
The Orioles and Ripken
Baseball have expressed
a desire and are willing to


locate a Cal Ripken Youth
Baseball Academy and
youth tournaments at the
Minor League Site. ...The
timing of the develop-
ment and construction of
the youth fields and facili-
ties is dependent upon
the raising of the neces-
sary funds to proceed
with the project. ...
In this section, the
words "Orioles", "Ripken"
and "youth academy" are
mentioned at least four
times. It is clear who and
what was involved in the
agreement.
On the day the contract
was signed, the deputy
county administrator and
several Orioles' officials
spent considerable time
before the county com-
mission describing the
proposed site and reasons
why a Cal Ripken Youth
Baseball Academy would
be an economic asset to
the community. Through
the negotiations, Orioles'
officials and representa-
tives touted the synergy
of such a partnership.


When asked about Cal
Ripken's real intention,
Alan Rifkin, Orioles'
attorney, read a testimo-
nial from Ripken:" I'm
thrilled that the Orioles
have found a comprehen-
sive spring training home
.... I have always like the
idea of kids playing side
by side with the profes-
sional ballplayers... We
are excited to partner
with the Orioles and
Sarasota."
Cal Ripken knows first-
hand about the successes
of youth baseball acad-
emies, since he owns
facilities in Maryland and
South Carolina.
When a commissioner
asked Rifkin when the
academy fundraising
would begin, she was
told "immediately." The
July 2009 Orioles press
release announcing the
spring training contract
included the Cal Ripken
Youth Baseball Academy.
In the course of the com-
mission's dealings with
the Orioles, executive vice


president John Angelos
assured it that the Orioles
are an organization that
stands for "overdelivering
on our promises."
However, for nearly two
and a half years, there has
been no official update
on the progress toward
a Cal Ripken Youth
Baseball Academy. The
stadium was renovated,
the farm team clubhouse
was refurbished at Twin
Lakes Park and a new
clubhouse has been built
at the Ed Smith Stadium
complex yet no word
about the youth academy.
Now we learn that
Cal Ripken has been in
yearlong discussions
with Charlotte County
officials about establish-
ing a Cal Ripken Youth
baseball facility near its
minor league fields. He
apparently failed to tell
them about the Sarasota
County agreement, and
it seems that he never
told Sarasota County
about his discussions in
Charlotte.


Ripken's relationship
with Charlotte County
apparently began when
he moved his minor
league team to Char-
lotte fromVero Beach
in late 2008/early 2009.
In December 2008, he
visited Sarasota and was
promoting the Cal Rip-
ken Academy here.
What's going on here?
Either the Orioles and
Ripken meant what they
said or they didn't.
Local children were
promised a Cal Ripken
Youth Baseball Academy.
Where is it? How much
money has been raised
to date?
In local media, numer-
ous opinion page editors
and business leaders
lauded the benefits of a
deal with the Baltimore
Orioles and the added
value of a Cal Ripken
Youth Baseball Academy
(estimating its impact at
/"


$17.3 million).
Where is the outrage
from local officials and
business leaders? When
are the public meetings
scheduled with the Ori-
oles and Cal Ripken?
The children and resi-
dents of Sarasota County
deserve an answer.
The Orioles got their
share of the bargain.
In July 2009, Orioles
president Andy McPhail
stated, "We keenly feel
the responsibility of the
baseball tradition here
in Sarasota .... We want
to make you proud of
being associated with the
Baltimore Orioles."
Now it's time for the
Orioles and Cal Ripken to
step up to the plate and
deliver.

I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


And the survey says...
Editor:
I have spent some time
during my broadcast-
ing career doing media
research. I would design
and analyze surveys. So I
am delighted with Mayor
Holic's survey project. I
would like to offer a few
constructive comments.
You would want to try
to get at least 300 respon-
dents. A five-point rating
scale would be preferred
to four points, as this
gives people a neutral, or
"average," option.
Mayor Holic speaks
of the survey represent-
ing the city's population.
However, he himself has
encouraged people he
calls "stakeholders," such
as those involved with the
airport who don't neces-
sarily live in Venice, to
participate in the surveys.
I believe Venice residents
should comment on Ven-
ice issues.
"Excellent" and "Good"
are often combined to
produce an approval rat-
ing. So the approval rat-
ing for the Venice Council
would be 55 percent. This
is comparable to Presi-
dent Obama's approval
rating these days, espe-
cially when you consider
that the Venice survey
did not include a neutral
option. It's OK, but not
fantastic.
Venice City Council is
certainly way ahead of
the U.S. Congress, whose
approval ratings have
been in the high teens
lately.
I would like to see this
fine idea taken to the next
step. The Venice Gondo-
lier should conduct an
opinion survey. It would
allow us to rate individual
council members as well
as Venice entities like
council itself, various city
departments and per-
haps Venice institutions
like the library. I'd be
delighted to help.

You don't know Rotary

Editor:
A caller complained
about Rotary serving beer
from a foreign-owned
company. He refers to
Rotary as being a "sup-
posedly patriotic Ameri-
can service group."
The caller is obviously
not at all familiar with
Rotary.
I recommend that
he go online to rotary.
org. There he will find
that while Rotary was
founded in 1905 by an
American, Paul Harris,
it is in no way a merely
American service club.
Its correct name is Rotary


International and it has
been an international
service club for 100
years. The mission of
Rotary International is to
provide service to others,
promote integrity and
advance world under-
standing, goodwill and
peace through its fellow-
ship of business, profes-
sional and community
leaders.
Rotary does not
promote patriotism to
American or any other
country.
There are approxi-
mately 1.2 million Rotar-
ians serving in Rotary
clubs in nearly every
country in the world.

If you have ever been
to Anita's Sandcastle on
the South Jetty in Venice,
Florida, you would see a
master entrepreneur at
work. Anita knows how
to cook her hot dogs to
perfection. She remem-
bers every order, even
when she has 10 people
in line. The line moves
quickly, and the people
are treated courteously.
With the help of her
mother, the place is kept
spotless. The condiment
containers are full and
the drinks are cold.
My husband and I have
been getting hot dogs at
the South Jetty for all the


American Continental


Althea's


years we have lived in
Venice. We love parking,
watching the birds and
the dolphins, seeing the
boats leaving and entering
the canal or just enjoying
the wonderful sea breezes.
Why would Council

want to disturb such a
lovely place? Has he ever
eaten one of Anita's Belly

with fresh cole slaw, yel-

It is truly a hot dog lover's

Yes, increase her rent,

HIGH SCHOOL SOFTBALL




Riverview nips Venice, 1-0


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

Early in the season base hits
have been hard to come by for
Venice.
It happened again on Tues-
day night against Riverview.
Senior Corinne Jenkins
pitched a two-hitter with 15
strikeouts in leading the Lady
Rams to a 1-0 win over the
Lady Indians at Miss Sarasota
Softball Complex in Sarasota.
It was a rematch of two
weeks ago as Riverview
notched a 3-1 win on Feb. 7.
"Our bane all season has
been our bats," said Venice
coach Fred Sosnoski. "The
biggest thing is we have to put
bat on ball. In practice we hit.
North port we hit incredibly.
We hit against Lemon Bay."
The only hits Jenkins allowed
were bunt singles by freshman
Carly Rosa in the second inning
and freshman Sid Lakins in the
third inning.
"We didn't concentrate on
the ball and delivery," said
Sosnoski. "She has a differ-
ent wind-up compared to any
other pitchers we've seen. We
were concentrating on the
wind-up instead of concentrat-
ing on the ball."
Keeping pace with Jenkins on
the mound was Venice sopho-
more Megan Quinn.


Quinn, who gave up just four
hits, allowed just two hits in the
four innings.
"Quinn pitched a great
game," said Sosnoski.
The Lady Rams (2-3) broke
the scoreless tie in the bottom
of the fifth inning.
With one out, Carly Nicholas
walked on a 3-2 count. Taylor
Kierscht followed by ripping a
double over the center fielder's
head to the base of the fence
scoring Nicholas with the only
run.
"Maybe we had one mis-
judged ball in the outfield,"
said Sosnoski.
Despite only two hits, Venice
(1-4) did have a chance to score
as Jenkins had trouble finding
the strike zone in the top of the
sixth inning.
Amber Yonker led off with a
walk then stole second base.
Lakins walked and Yonker
moved to third on a passed
ball as the ball glanced off
the catcher's glove. Lakins
stole second to put runners at
second and third with no outs.
Liz Walters grounded to third
base. On the play, Yonker took
off for home but was out on the
catcher's tag.
Lakins advanced to third on
the play then Walters stole sec-
ond base. Emalee Sands walked
to load the bases.
However, the Lady Rams


got out of the jam with a
bloop fly out to short stop and
strikeout.
"When you have a runner at
second and third with no outs,
you automatically think you are
going to score," said Sosnoski.
"It was incredible to me we
didn't. I told them to check and
go. I don't have a problem with
us being aggressive on the base
paths. She (Yonker) was aggres-
sive and went after it hard. She
slid underneath the tag and
they got the call. Plain and
simple though, if we get a base
hit, it's a 2-1 game instead of us
worrying."
Despite the loss, Sosnoski
was happy with his team's field-
ing as the Lady Indians played
errorless in the field.
"One positive is we prob-
ably played the best fielding
game we have all season," said
Sosnoski.

SCHOOL
FROM PAGE 1

the collegiate high
school like the one
currently operating at
SCF's Bradenton cam-
pus could be opera-
tional by this spring and
would have about 225
students in grades 10
through 12 and focus
on STEM subjects -
science, technology,
engineering and math-
ematics. The curriculum
will prepare graduates
to earn both their high
school diploma and an
associate in arts degree
simultaneously, while
transitioning them
into a baccalaureate
program.
The approval followed


WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2012


a morning workshop
presentation by Dr. Cyn-
thia Reynolds, academic
administrator of SCF's
collegiate school at the
Bradenton campus, and
Kelly Monod, SCFCS
head of school.
"The careers of the
future are going to be in
STEM," Reynolds said.
"Our school population
is any South County -
even Lemon Bay area or
Charlotte County stu-
dent homeschooled,
private-schooled,
charter-schooled, who's
in the 10th, llth or
12th grade who wants
this accelerated school
experience. The students
who come to us will
have the opportunity to
take as many courses
as they need, leading
them not only to a high


school graduation but
also graduation with 60
transferrable (college)
credits."
School Board Member
Shirley Brown agreed
that "overall it's a good
idea," but expressed
concern that the best
and brightest students
might find themselves
prematurely taken from
the county's high schools
and exposed to the rigors
of a college fast-track
program.
Todd was clearly
agitated with the
presentation.
"We have absolutely
no control whether or
not we approve this,"
Todd said. "It will be
approved and the cards
are stacked against us. If
we chose not to approve
it, then at the end of


the day the state board
would not support us."
Todd also expressed
concern that the admis-
sions criteria might pose
a barrier to minority
students and students
with disabilities, and that
the school's curriculum
would de-emphasize the
humanities.
"Also, as a product of
the liberal arts, I have
to tell you that there is a
place for the liberal arts
in today's education,"
she said. "And the idea
that children are gradu-
ating with an AA degree
at 18 years old is scary
for me. I don't think we're
allowing children to be
children."
But Board Chair
Caroline Zucker saw it
as a positive idea, help-
ing financially strapped


families get their kids
through college in a
more cost-effective way.
"This will save par-
ents dollars for two
extra years that their
child won't have to be in
school," Zucker said.
KathyWalker, direc-
tor of public affairs and
marketing for SCF, said
the program would be
funded in part by the
school district and in
part by a $350,000 grant
through the Public
Charter School Grant
Program.
"The estimated cost
for the first year, 2012-
13, of the proposed
STEM school is $1.2 mil-
lion," Walker said. "The
estimated revenues
for the same period
are $1.4 million. These
figures are based on


projected 225 students."
Walker responded to
Todd's concerns by
affirming that children
are happiest when
they're in a school envi-
ronment that acknowl-
edges the pace in which
they need to move.
"We have a very
individualized program
at our collegiate school
in Bradenton," Walker
said. "The one that is
proposed for Venice also
will be individualized.
So why should students
who are advanced or
who move at a different
pace from their fellow
students be held
back?"

gram, call 941-752-5494

to county services and
fees they made last year,
when they raised Sarasota
County Area Transit fares
and eliminated Sunday
hours (1 p.m. to 5 p.m.)
at the Jacaranda Library
in South Venice and the
Selby Library in down-
town Sarasota.
Increasing the pay
of county employees.
Those who are managers
working "at will" are in
their fourth year without
a salary increase. Some
other employees, includ-
ing Teamsters, are in their
third year under a pay
freeze.
Returning the funds to
taxpayers. If commission-
ers chose to reduce mill-
age next year by $6 mil-
lion fewer tax dollars (and
assuming a projected
4 percent decrease in
property values), the mill-
age could be reduced by
0.1579 mills. This would
result in a $31.58 saving
for the owner of a prop-
erty valued at $200,000.
(A mill is $1 in taxes for
every $1,000 of a home's
assessed value.)
Leaving the money
in reserves to help
offset future shortfalls
in the General Fund.
The county is project-
ing to have a deficit of
at least $14.2 million at
the beginning of 2014-
15 if property values
do not increase more
than expected, boosting
property tax receipts. The
$6 million was added to
the General Fund fund
balance after the last fis-
cal year and is still there.
Adding funds to the
Economic Development
Incentive Fund.
"I believe replenish-
ing the EDIF is the best
return on investment
as the economy is the
No. 1 issue facing county
residents," Robinson
said. "This is supported
by our citizens' survey,
which indicated that the
economy and jobs are
overwhelmingly the most
important issue facing
the county today."

waivers) we will con-
tinue to get more and
more nonconforming
(structures)."
"It could have been a
little more palatable if it
was a little more Northern
Italian," Graser said.
"It looks to me a lot of
buildings are noncon-
forming," said Commis-
sioner Marshall Happer.
"I'm concerned we put
this in place when nobody
can meet this standard
without drastic recon-
struction (costs)."
There was also concern
the land could be subdi-
vided in the future and
sold off, since only a por-
tion of the property will be
used for the cottages.
To address the concern,
the commission stipulated
the entire parcel shall be
developed as part of the
VOTI campus as housing
for the aged.
The site and devel-
opment plan was also
approved, contingent
upon council's approval of
the waiver.
In separate action, the
commission approved a
preliminary plat and site
and development plan for
PlazaVenezia at Laurel
Road and Pinebrook Road.
A Publix is planned in the


development.
A third special excep-
tion petition was also
approved for a drive-
through pharmacy associ-
ated with Publix, along
with the stipulation that
additional buffering be
added along Laurel Road
and Pinebrook Road.

ATTACKS

followed by large barks
Monday, indicating the
dog is still at home.
Someone did eventually
come home to the house
but didn't want to talk.
Neighbors said they
are concerned there will
be another attack and


don't know if there is
anything they can do.
"We don't really know
because we don't know
exactly what the laws
are," said neighbor
Diana Lucker.
According to the
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office, in order for a dog
to be declared vicious
there must be two cases
of the dog causing seri-
ous injury to another


pet or one attack on a
human.
That's no assurance for
those the neighborhood,
located near the inter-
section of East Venice
Avenue and the Venice
Bypass.
"It's terrifying," said
Lucker. "There are a
lot of small children
and a lot of dogs. Now
we don't even feel like
we are safe in our own


neighborhood."
A neighbor across the
street who has small
children said the dog
has chased him into his
home and he has to be
on guard while his kids
are outside. Other neigh-
bors say they have been
concerned for a while.
Menendez says they
could use more help.
"I would have been
happier if they would


SUN NEWSPAPERS 13A

have at least observed the
dog to make sure that he
didn't have a brain tumor
or was rabid," she said.
"I don't know why a dog
would just run after and
attack an innocent dog
and kill it."
Neighbors helped bury
Louie in the backyard
Sunday, and are con-
cerned what could hap-
pen to another pet, or
worse, to a person.

Our Mother's House offers hope


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR

Imagine being a single
mother and homeless. It's not
a stretch of the imagination for
many in today's economy.
How do you get on your feet
and succeed in today's world?
Our Mother's House, a
program of Catholic Chari-
ties, Diocese of Venice Inc.,
has the answer for some. This
nonprofit, nondenominational
residential housing program
has a mission of providing sin-
gle mothers and their children
a safe and secure environ-
ment in which the mother can
become self-sufficient through
education, vocational training
and personal growth.
According to its website, pri-
ority is given to mothers who
are homeless or in another
shelter.
Admission is on a space-
available basis and whether
the facility can meet the appli-
cant's needs. There is a two-
year limit on a mother's length
of stay.
Felicia Holmes, 25, can attest
to the benefits of the program.
A year after her son Dominic's
birth she divorced his father,
and she now lives in one of the
program's 17 apartments. The
program has grown to encom-
pass three housing facilities,
and Holmes moved into the
newest one on West Venice
Avenue in June 2010 when it
opened.
"This program was a life-
saver for me," Holmes said. "It
showed me how to be a mom,
and how to be a responsible
adult. There are a lot of girls
out there who could use this
program. Many get pregnant
and do not have a family or
support."
She said she and the other

25TH ANNIVERSARY
Our Mother's House is celebrating its
25th anniversary Thursday during

"This is a life skill and has
helped me a lot," she said.
Our Mother's House and the
day care facility to which she
takes Dominic requires him to
receive an annual physical.
Dominic is in day care while
she attends State College of
Florida and works as a vol-
unteer at the local Florida
Department of Children
and Families. She is on cash
assistance with the state and is
required to attend school or do
volunteer work to get cash. She
chose volunteer hours to learn
to manage school, work and
raising a family.
Holmes plans to get an asso-
ciate of arts degree in health-
care administration, which will
put her in line for office work
in a medical setting, she said.
"I have to move out in June,
because my two years will be
up," she said. "I don't know
where I'll go. I'm looking for
work now, but timing is a
problem because I can't work
weekends or nights without
paying for day care.
Holmes' mother lives in
Arcadia and is supportive of
her daughter and grandson.
Moving back to Arcadia is an
option, but Holmes said she's
building a support system here
and finding work in Venice
can help her maintain her
self-sufficiency.

'Music Man' not up to Venice Theatre standards


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

A little boy named
Winthrop (Nathan Oss
and Zachery Younts) and
several feathered hats
steal the show in Venice
Theatre's production of
Meredith Wilson's "The
Music Man."
The story is about an
itinerant fast-talking


salesman named Har-
old Hill (Douglas Lan-
din). Hill, who is not a
musician, plans to sell
musical instruments and
band uniforms to River
City, Iowa. His pitch is
that it will save the young
people from the evils of
the game of pool. The
town's mayor owns the
pool hall.
With book, music and


lyrics by the late Mer-
edithWilson, the tale
becomes complex when
Hill manages to enlist
help from local librarian
(Marian Paroo, played by
Laurie Colton). The plot's
thickening agent is love.
As performed on
Broadway and in the film
version, both of which
featured Robert Preston
as Hill, this is one of the


world's great musicals.
It is filled with songs
that audience members
might sing as they leave
the theater a major
sign of a hit.
Winthrop, the librar-
ian's little brother, has
a lisp and a bit of a
complex because of his
peers. He also is the son
of the delightfully Irish
Mrs. Paroo (Dawn Hale).


He was portrayed by
Younts on Feb. 16 when I
attended the show.
The totally awesome
hats are worn by Eulalie
Mackecknie Shinn
(Kim Kollar), Alma Hix
(Carolyn Laibach), Maud
Dunlop (Pinky Stew-
art), Ethel Toffelmeier
and Mrs. Squires (Linda
Mangold). Created by
the theater's resident


costume designer
Nicholas Hartman and
Francine Smetts, these
incredible chapeaus have
feathers that seem larger
than the birds from
which they were plucked,
plus other assorted
trimmings. Think turn-
of-the-century head-
gear on steroids. They

''A Chorus Line' sizzles


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Sharp choreography
by Berry Ayres is but one
of the strengths of "A
Chorus Line" as pre-
sented by The Players in
Sarasota.
Director Jeffery Kin,
who also portrays Zach,
the director of the show
casting a chorus line,
assembled a talented
cast and then coached
every one of them to
give their all and then
some.
The basic story is
about the tryout process
for a Broadway-type
musical. The simple
set by Michael A. Gray
and John C. Reynolds
consists of a wall of
mirrors such as one

studio. When rotated,
the mirrors become a
simple black backdrop
as needed during the
story's progress, leading
up to the ultimate selec-
tion of just four men
and four women for the
chorus line of the show
about which this show
was written.
Trying out for the
chorus line are all sorts
of men and women, in
all sorts of shapes and
sizes and ages. One of
the older dancers, at 30
or so, is Cassie (Kathryn
Parks) who has been
a star and is trying to
make a comeback by
trying out for a chorus
line job.
"I need a job," she
said. "I haven't worked
in two years."
Zach, with whom she


has a history, tries to
convince her that she
should not be there but
she is having none of
that and is determined
to prove herself.
"I'm not trying to go
back," she said. "I'm try-
ing to start over."
As Zach interviews
the dancers to learn
what makes them tick,
we learn about the
many types of people

reasons for being there
and even their varied
backgrounds. That
alone makes for an
interesting script, by
James Kirkwood and
Nicholas Dante, but
dance numbers and
songs with music by
Marvin Hamlisch and
lyrics by Edward Kieban
transform this simple


scenario into one of
Broadway's most enter-
taining and endearing
shows. The show, like its
many dancers, has legs.
There are friends
within the cast and
even a husband-and-
wife team (sadly, they
have unequal abilities).
There also is a lot of
talent within this show,


beginning with Mike
(Chad Mueller) whose
performance of "I Can
Do That" proves he can.
Since singing is as
much a part of this
show as dancing,
Geena Ravella has to

wonderful men's suits in
various shades of pastel

There also are a few
comedy bits in the show
such as the hat-wearing
ladies performing "Pick-
a-Little, Talk-a-Little" and
several men in the cast
performing the opening
musical number, "Rock
Island," while rocking
along on the train as it
rolls along. The highlight
of that number was Tank
Martin as Marcellus
Washburn. He's the one
in the great plaid suit
and in Act 2, the even
greater and brighter plaid
suit worn in "Shipoopi."
He reminds one of Allan
Kollar (Venice Theatre's

his gift of comedic timing
and even a bit for his
looks. Sadly, even these
good bits cannot save
this production.

took what should have

the area, purposely sing
off key was just one of
Moore's travesties.
Colton is another fine
singer but she too was
poorly directed and
seemed to be pushed
into a range that was dif-
ficult for her. She proved
she could sing in the
theater's 2010 production
of "Shout!" Pretty and
talented, she deserves
better than she got from
either Ziegler or Moore.
There were several
talented dancers in the
chorus but poor choreog-
raphy made them stand
out instead of making the
other dancers seem to be
equal, as was the case in
last season's "Ragtime" or
in the fall musical, "Big

those as much as they
harmed this production.

SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER
The Venice Inter-
act Club is helping to
combat chronic child
malnutrition in Guate-
mala by volunteering


with an international
program of the South
Florida nonprofit
Adopt-a-Village.
Interact is a Rotary
International youth
service club compris-
ing members ages 12


to 18 and is one of the
fastest-growing in the
world, with clubs in 109
countries. Each group
must complete two com-
munity service projects
a year, one of which
furthers international


understanding and
goodwill.
Adopt-a-Village helps
empower the Mayan
people in northwestern
Guatemala in education
and nutritional health.
The all-volunteer group


has funded and managed
about 70 humanitarian
programs in a remote
region in Guatemala
where extreme poverty
exists. Many of its under-
takings, such as building
schools, water systems


e


and roads, have been in
partnership with Rotary
clubs in the United States.

First Young Marines class graduates


FROM VENICE
MIDDLE SCHOOL

On the evening of
Jan. 27, the Venice
Middle School Young
Marines program held a
graduation and promo-
tion ceremony in the
Venice Middle gymna-
sium. The 71 graduat-
ing cadets received
their promotion honors
and their new rank of
Young Marine private
in front of 300 parents,
staff and special invited
guests from the school
board and local military
organizations.
The promotion cer-
emony highlighted the
cadets' completion of
specific required crite-
ria, including academic
abilities, physical fitness
performance guidelines,
outstanding conduct

and a diligent attention
to the tenets of the Young
Marine Code.
Each cadet was
honored for his or
her perseverance and


determination that
began in August 2011
and finalized in January
2012, earning each cadet
a graduation certificate
for Marine Entry-Level
Training Courses 1 and 2.


The newly appointed

will now embark on
another five-month pro-

The academic and
physical fitness require-

demanding, with special


emphasis on personal
physical fitness (mile
run, shuttle run), 50
hours of community ser-

drills, supervised inspec-
tions and evaluations,
and an obligation of
positive academic scores
with meritorious behav-

the opening. Lead tenor
Antonio Nagore, who
plays Don Jose, displayed
only a slight hint of his
bout with bronchitis in a
couple of the high notes
near the end of the per-
formance. Bass-baritone
Carlos Monz6n was back
in the cast as Escamillo
the bullfighter after being
too ill to perform on
opening night.
"Carmen" is a story of
love, lust and murder. It is
set in Seville, Spain. Car-
men is a beautiful, fiery
gypsy who captures many
hearts and breaks them
all. Played by mezzo-
soprano Fredrika Brillem-
bourg, she flirts with the
men on stage and the
audience as she sings the
famous "Habanera," com-
paring love to a wild bird
that will not be tamed.
Brillembourg gave a
stunning performance
throughout. Her voice
was clear and strong,

tempting and alluring.
Nagore played the love-
stricken soldier Don Jose
well, despite his still-
apparent vocal problems.
And although their vocal
performances were good
together, the sex and


sizzle just wasn't there.
Soprano Danielle
Walker returned to Sara-
sota Opera for her second
season as the peasant girl
Micaela, who is hopelessly
in love with Don Jose. Her
voice was simply beautiful

and it was apparent that
although she was unable
to charm her former
lover away from Carmen,
she charmed the audi-
ence. Monz6n played the
bullfighter with flair and
aplomb.
As always, the Sarasota
Opera Chorus, made up of
the company's Apprentice
Artists, was strong and a
joy to hear. The Sarasota
Youth Opera members
who played the children
were enthusiastic as well
as in good voice and truly
up to the task.
Sarah Asmar and
Vira Slywotzky's were
enjoyable as the gypsies
Frasquita and Merc6des.
Asmar has returned to
Sarasota for several sea-
sons. We wouldn't be sur-
prised to see her again.
Considering that
there were more than
60 people onstage at
one point (even more
than in last year's "La
Boheme"), movement on
the stage was well done,
thanks to Martha Col-
lins' expert direction. And


the orchestra, under the
direction of Artistic Direc-
torVictor DeRenzi, played
brilliantly, at times as if it
were one instrument.
Ken Yunker's lighting

this show was no disap-
pointment, particularly
in Act III in the moun-

With the motto, "Train
a student, transform
a village," Interacters
are selling hundreds of
hand-crafted Guatema-
lan key chains to raise
funds. Their goal is to
alleviate hunger by sup-
porting a scholarship in
sustainable agriculture.
In the remote indig-
enous villages in Guate-
mala, little opportunity
exists to gain an educa-
tion past sixth grade.


The scholarship will
put a Mayan student
in an accelerated pro-
gram, enabling him to
complete three years of
schooling in just two.
A diploma opens doors
to university studies,
professional train-
ing or small business
management.
By providing special-
ized training in sustain-
able food production, the
scholarship will benefit

hundreds of indigenous
children with nutritious
food, thus stemming the
severe malnutrition.
The international
project hit its midway
funding mark last month,
thanks to the enthusias-
tic club members. Their
goal is to raise $2,000 for
an all-inclusive annual
scholarship.
Jane Mendola, lead
Interact adviser and
member of the Venice-
Nokomis Rotary Club,
said, "By training one
student, our Interact
Club is clearly helping
to combat malnutrition


of Guatemalan children.
The country suffers from
the worst level of chronic
child malnutrition in
Latin America and the
fourth highest level in
the world.
"Chronic malnutrition
limits physical growth
with the result that chil-
dren's bodies are stunted
and highly vulnerable
to disease and illness. It
causes irreversible brain
damage, leaving them
unable to function well
in school or in later life."
Imparting one stu-
dent's expertise in
growing food sustainably


can help at least 100 vil-
lagers. Every student at
the Mayan Center must
share his or her train-
ing in producing "super
foods" vegetables with
the highest nutritional
values. From improv-
ing soil using green
composting methods, to
using special planting
techniques, to harvest-
ing seeds for the next
year's crops, parents can
improve their children's
health.
"Our Venice Interact
Club is not just helping
one student, it is helping
entire villages," Mendola


said. "They are doing
something vitally impor-
tant that is improving
the lives of many. The
Interact Club has really
taken this project to
heart, and our facilita-
tors at Rotary and the
faculty adviser at Venice
High School are very
proud of them."

I GOREN BRIDGE
WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:

4K95 0K1050 AKJ64K 10

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

A How high you go depends
entirely on how many aces partner
holds. Bid four clubs and sign off if
partner's response shows no more
than one ace. If partner shows more,
bid a small slam if he has two and go
for broke if he has all three missing
bullets.

Q 2 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

6 K965 ) Q952 0 7 4 10872

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

A If you could be sure that partner
would respond to a Stayman inquiry
by bidding a major, by all means bid
Stayman. But what do you intend
doing should he respond two
diamonds, denying a four-card
major? Just pass and hope partner
finds enough in your hand to squeeze
out seven tricks.

Q 3 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

4Q7 ~950 AJ82498752


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
26 Pass 20
24 Pass ?
What do you bid now?


WEST
Pass


A Your club suit is hardly a thing of
beauty and, had your queen been in
hearts rather than spades, we would
certainly bid two no trump. As it is,
you know partner has at least five,
perhaps more, spades. Your queen in
partner's suit should be of great
interest to him, and we would raise to
three spades.


Q 4 Not vulnerable, as South you
hold:

SQ1087 Q950 K974643


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


WEST
Pass


A Partner has bid both red suits and
you have an honor in each. Partner
has an unbalanced hand so, despite
your square holding, raise partner's
longer suit. Bid three diamonds.

Q 5 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

AAQ83 7420AK J9845

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

A You certainly want to get your
goodish spade suit into the auction,
but to overcall one spade could lead
to all sorts of trouble. Despite the fact
that your distribution is skewed, we
would double for takeout and hope
we can handle the ensuing auction.

Q 6 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:

S7 6 2 J 107 0AJ 9 5 5 3 2

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

A Your only four-card suit has been
bid by LHO. Even so, we would bid
one no trump. You are a little light for
this action, but nothing else makes
sense. If you bid a suit, partner might

No lack of things to do

in Venice this week

If you can get tickets to Venice Theatre's mainstage production of
"The Music Man" do it. Two weeks before press time, there were
only balcony back row seats left for opening night and things
weren't much better for the rest of the week.
With Douglas Landin as Harold Hill and Laurie Colton
as Marian Paroo (the local librarian) plus the likes of
Kim Kollar as Eulalie MacKecknie Shinn, Ken Frommer as
Mayor Shinn and so many other Venice Theatre regulars,
this is yet another hit show in a season that has already included
"Big River" and "Almost,Maine" and still running in the Pinkerton,
"Altar Boyz."With just 90 seats, tickets for that one are especially
hard to come by.
Another Venice Theatre show with tickets in short
supply is the Kingston Trio concert which is performing in concert
Sunday-Monday.
While you are on the phone to the box office at 941-488-1115 or
at www.venicestage.com, order your tickets to the theater's world
premier of "Stand ByYour Van,' which opens April 3
on the main stage. Someone in the audience will go home
from the final performance of that show with a new car. There will be
a drawing at each performance for a chance at the car and all those
winners must return for the final show to win the car.
Thursday, at the Venice Airport Festival Grounds,
the 24th annual Italian Feast & Carnival opens at 4 p.m.
for its annual four-day homage to all things Italian, with
a heavy emphasis on food. It it's Italian it's at the airport
this weekend.
Mangia! See the details in a separate article in Let's Go today.

World Sword Swallower's


Day at Ripley's


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

believe it or not but some folks will swallow
anything.
For proof, head over to Orlando Satur-
day for the World Sword Swallower's Day celebra-
tion at Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Odditorium.
More than 20 practitioners of this ancient art will
be "dropping swords" at 2:25:12 p.m. Note that
the precise time lines up with the numerical date
of the event.
According to a release from one of Florida's
more unusual destinations, the event is tied in to
the sixth annual World Sword Swallower's Day
celebration.
Dan Rotten of Central Florida and Dan Meyer
will present a free demonstration outside the
Odditorium beginning at 1:30 p.m. and leading up
to the "official swallow at 2:25:12 p.m. The total
length of the swords involved measures more
than 125 feet, according to the release.
The event was founded by the Sword Swallow-
ers Association International. It is cosponsored by
Ripley's Believe It or Not!
"We established World Sword Swallower's
Day to honor this ancient art and recognize the
few people in the world who can do this," said
Meyer, a sword swallower whose feats have been
chronicled by Ripley's. "We also raise awareness

of the contributions sword swallowers have made
to the fields of medicine and science and raise
money for esophageal cancer research."
The Ripley connection with sword swallow-
ing dates to the Chicago World's Fair in 1933 at
which Ripley's first "Odditorium" was presented.
Ripley's Believe It or Not! has a long history of
highlighting the death-defying achievements of
sword swallowers.
Sword swallowing is said to date back some

Warbird Weekend lands in Punta Gorda


BY RACHAEL TAFT
STAFF WRITER
The third annual Warbird Weekend will
be taking flight Saturday-Sunday at the
Punta Gorda Airport in Punta Gorda. The
event, which is put on by the Experimental
Aircraft Association Warbirds Squadron 24, is
a fundraiser primarily for the Wounded Warrior
Project and the Veteran's Airlift Command. In
past two years the event has raised more than
$18,000.
"It's all about trying to honor and recognize the
sacrifices veterans have made for our freedom,"
Florida Warbirds President Jim "Zack" Olzacki
said. He said it was about "doing great things for
the people who have served us."
"It's really Americans helping Americans," said
Greg Rineer of Wounded Warriors. "Any help we
receive is greatly appreciated. We try and do our
best, and every little bit helps."
The Weekend has grown tremendously over
the past few years. "It's getting bigger, better and
more well known," Olzacki said.
This year will feature a static display of more
than 60 planes, significant growth from the 35
or so planes the event had its first year. There
will also be fighter and bomber planes on display.
Visitors to the event will be allowed to get
inside some of the planes and pose for photos.
They will also have the opportunity to go for a
ride in one of three aircraft on hand from History
Flight, a non-profit dedicated to preserving


aviation history.The rides will be provided in two
WWII trainer planes a T-6 Texan and a Stea-
rman PT-17 and a B-25 bomber plane.
The event will have military vehicles and
reenactors. Food will be for sale from the EAA
Chapter 565.
Wounded Warriors provides support for veter-
ans as they return home to recover and readjust
to civilian life. The Veteran's Airlift Command
provides free flights to wounded veterans for
medical purposes.
Admission is an $8 donation per person or $15
per family, per day. The event will take place from
10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and from 10 a.m. to

'Rock the World'


PROVIDED BY THE VENICE THEATRE


Theatre and the IVMS Choraliers will present
a collaborative production of the musical
"Rock the World!" by Gianna Campo at the Venice
Theatre at 1 p.m. Saturday.
Coined "IMAGINE,' the partnership between
IVMS and Venice Theatre is in its eighth year.
Jan Pearman, director of the IVMS after-
school program, sees theatre as an opportunity
to challenge her students while catering to a
variety of curriculum levels. Candace Artim and
Sandy Davisson of Venice Theatre's Education
and Outreach Department have worked on-site
at IVMS throughout the school year. Their time
with the students culminates in this fully-mounted
production on Venice Theatre's main stage.
The "IMAGINE' program enables children to ex-
press themselves creatively through drama, develop
their speaking and general social skills, and learn
the skills needed for acting and musical theatre.
Artim, Venice Theatre's assistant director
of Education and Outreach states, "I am so
impressed by the students' personal growth. It's
wonderful to see them progress as actors and
individuals. And, the discipline that is so impera-
tive to the acting process similar to the discipline
that a sports team must have helps develop
their ability to work as a team, problem solve and
think on their feet"'
Pearman exclaimed, "Wow, have we grown
since we first worked together eight years ago.
From simple skits to full-length original musicals
- what a wonderful journey we've taken together.
This year we've included more students from our
South Campus and we have fulfilled a dream to
have our North Campus students join in the pro-
ductions. All total, we have seven groups of IVMS


students performing at the theatre this year." She
goes on to say, "I am in awe as I watch the stu-
dents, especially when 4 and 5 year olds interact
with middle school students. I love to witness this
beautiful cooperation."
Sandy Davisson, Venice Theatre's director of
education and outreach added, "I honor Jan for
giving her students a performing arts experience.
They are learning how to fit a square peg in a round
hole while being creative. Our future leaders need to
develop both the left and right sides of their brains
and theatre is a perfect way to do that"
The IVMS Choraliers will present a pre-show
at 12:30 p.m.
A donation of $8 in exchange for tickets can
be given at the school in Pearman's office or by
calling 941-484-4999 ext. 224. Remaining tickets
will be available at the theatre beginning one hour
before the performance.
The Venice Theatre is located at 140 Tampa
Ave., Venice.

'A Blend of POPS'


Based on George Bernard Shaw's 1912 play
Pygmalion, MY FAIR LADY will transport
audiences to Edwardian London and one of the
most beautiful stories ever told about language
and clash of cultures.

"My Fair Lady" new national tour a delight..."
Birmingham News

"What a terrific show.. .fresh interpretations of story,
music, dancing, costumes, sets and lighting."


BY CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
overs of stage, screen and concert hall
music won't want to miss the Suncoast
Chorale's "A Blend of POPS" concert at
7:30 p.m. Friday at Trinity Presbyterian Church,
4365 State Road 776, Venice and at 3 p.m. Sun-
day at the Englewood United Methodist Church,
700 E. Dearborn St., Englewood.
According to piano accompanist John Renfroe,
"Good music attracts good people," and he is
excited to be playing lively arrangements of
popular tunes such as "This Little Light of Mine,"
"Cheek to Cheek," "Dancing with George "M." and
a new piece called "Banks of Doon" in honor of
poet Robert Burns.
Joan Byron, the Suncoast Chorale's presi-
dent, announced that Higher Ground, a young,
energetic dance troupe from Port Charlotte will
return as guest performers for both concerts. Trish
Wood, a member of the Suncoast Chorale since
'91, will be the show's emcee.
Many members of the group Higher Ground
are students of Catherine Milne who teaches
ballet at the Higher Ground Performing Arts
Studio. For the "Blend of POPS" concert the
group will dance to the beats of jazzy rhythms.
Although her ballet career was cut short due to
a stroke, Milne teaches pointe dance to students
using a variety of hand gestures to illustrate par-
ticular dance positions. Milne, the Chorale's vice
president, also sings soprano and seldom misses
rehearsals at Trinity Presbyterian Church.
A second Suncoast Chorale concert,

L-mC- ^ ^"P^


Brahms-A German Requiem" is scheduled for
7:30 p.m. April 20 atTrinity Presbyterian Churcil
and for 3 p.m.April 22 at Englewood United
Methodist Church.
Milne has nothing but praise for Artistic
Director Roy Engler. "Roy pulls us together
and what he teaches us is finally sinking in
He is doing what good conductors do and
we have certainly become a more cohes ve
group." "Brahms-A German Requiem"
has been performed before by other area
chorales, but never in the original German
This ambitious work by Brahms is, in
Engler's opinion, "an exciting attention
getter."
The April 20 concert will feature
guest artist Janet Carter performing a one
piano-four hands accompaniment with Jorlin
Renfroe. The April 22 concert will feature a
35-piece orchestra made up of symphony
orchestra players from Tampa, Sarasota,

Jim Lauderdale brings Bluegrass to Bash


BY CHRIS PORTER
EXECUTIVE EDITOR
When Jim Lauderdale plays Punta Gorda
this Sunday afternoon, he's planning on
playing it straight bluegrass.
And why not? He's a two-time Grammy winner
for bluegrass albums, and he's bringing a blue-
grass trio. And it is, after all, the Charlotte Harbor
Bluegrass Bash.
But don't think that's all there is to Lauderdale.
While he's recorded with bluegrass giant
Ralph Stanley more than once, you may find
he just came off a tour with Elvis Costello.
He's also the perennial host of the
Americana Music Association awards, and his
favorite writing partner is Robert Hunter, the
celebrated lyricist for the Grateful Dead.
He's recorded a lively CD with the jam band
Donna the Buffalo, and plans to travel to
England to work with Nick Lowe's group on what
he calls a soul album.
But with all that and more on his resume,
bluegrass is still in Jim Lauderdale's heart, not to
mention that warm, deep North Carolina voice.
'We'll be doing some of the songs I did on the
record with Ralph Stanley," Lauderdale said on
the phone, thinking ahead to his trip to
Punta Gorda. "Some of the songs from the solo
set I do. We'll mix it up."
Lauderdale was speaking during a break at the
eclectic Virginia Key Grassroots music festival in
Miami last week, but getting ready to head for
Los Angeles and the 2012 Grammy Awards. It
was his sixth nomination, but his and Hunter's
Reason & Rhyme was edged out for the Blue-
grass award by Alison Krauss & Union Station's
Paper Airplane.
Already, though, he is working on the next


couple of CDs that can get him back into the
competition when next year's awards are nomi-
nated. With Lauderdale, there is no standing still.
Since I interviewed him 10 years ago before the
Riverhawk Festival in Arcadia, he's released nine
CDs, almost all packed with original songs he's
written or co-written.
He rattled off the next three projects he's
planning, including more writing with Hunter, who
happens to be one songwriter who can keep
pace with Lauderdale. They write together in
person and via email, but both love to write lots
of songs.
"It's just kinda my favorite thing to do," Lau-
derdale explained. "A lot of times I have an idea
about what I want to do, and book a studio, get
the musicians set up. Then I have to come up with
something!"
He and Hunter had already recorded their
follow-up to Reason & Rhyme. Coming soon, he's
planning to record the soul album in England with
Lowe's band, then has an interesting idea for a
project in California.
"I am going to try to write some songs on the
road. Then, while I am out with this group called
Ollabelle, I want to go into the studio with them
for one day and see if we can put together an
album. I think I'll be writing right up to the last
minute for that."
That's a lot of collaborating.
This weekend, though, he's going to limit the
collaborating to his bluegrass partners Ollie
O'Shea on fiddle and Richard Bailey on banjo
with Lauderdale on guitar.
The Jim Lauderdale Trio with Florida Bluegrass
Express and Highway 41 South will perform at
2 p.m. Sunday at the Charlotte Harbor Event &
Conference Center, 75 Taylor St., Punta Gorda.

'Laughing With the Legends'


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Brian Gurl and his wife Joey will present
their "Laughing With the Legends" show at
7 p.m. Thursday at the Venice Community
Center.
The longtime Venice residents who now reside
in North Carolina have performed that show all
over the country for many years. Presenting the
last production of that show in Venice seemed
appropriate because of their longtime connection
with the city and many of their fans.
The high-energy show features the duo por-
traying the likes of Lucille Ball, Elvis Presley, Ed
Sullivan, Marilyn Monroe, Fats Domino, Liberace
and Jerry Lee Lewis among others as they spoof
the decade of the '50s, its people fashions, hot
rods and hula hoops. The duo will portray some
14 personalities of that era.
Brian is a pianist and singer. Joey is equal
parts vocalist, actress and acrobat. She actually
is older than her husband by several years but
no one would ever know it while watching her
perform.
Longtime fans may be sad to hear that this will
be the last performance of this show.


"It's a very special, and emotional event for us',
Brian said. "We are even having a full band with
us at the community center because it is such a
special performance."
Joey will not retire completely but will cut back
to performing smaller roles in two of Brian's other
shows.
The two have performed together for more
than 25 years. They had their own 300-seat
theater in Vermont for several years. Since 2003
they have been represented by Alkahest Artists &
Attractions, a national agency.
"Joey is a real pro, a real trooper the audi-
ence feels her love; experiences her charisma
and joy and appreciates her talents," Brian said. "I
used to think years back that expressing joy was
a little'corny,' and that being vulnerable and shar-
ing oneself with an audience in an honest, self-
deprecating manner was hideous and threatening
- but after witnessing Joey pull all of this off with
ease for years plus working with our brilliant
acting coach -Karen Shepard, I re-learned that
these attributes were gifts to be cherished and
nurtured, rather than something to hide from ...
and in my particular case ... slowly developed.
As far as looking back on our show-biz career

Museum of Fine Arts and Butcher Gallery are tour destinations


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Tours from one museum to another are
becoming more and more popular.
As the season winds down, the South-
west Florida Museum of History in Fort Myers
has some interesting options, St. Petersburg,
Venice and Useppa Island. As tours fill quickly,
those interested need to make reservations as
soon as possible.
On Tuesday, the tour will head to the Fine
Arts Museum in St. Petersburg for a guided
tour of the museum and lunch at Cha Cha
Coconuts on the fifth floor of the St. Petersburg
Pier. This may be one of the last chances to
see the current pier which will be replaced
with something called the Lens in the next


year or so. Many of the concessions on the
existing pier have already closed and will not
be accommodated at its replacement which,
from space, will look sort of like a fish eye. It
will have a two-level system of walkways that
can accommodate the tram and emergency ve-
hicles but in all other cases will only accommo-
date pedestrians. While there will be a cafe and
such concessions as a place to rent kayaks, this
will be an entirely new space and likely worthy of
a field trip once completed.
Among the museum's French impressionistic
paintings are two by Claude Monet. It also has
a charming sculpture garden. The total collec-
tion reflects many periods of art and is regu-
larly augmented with visiting exhibits. Currently
being displayed is "Ancient Egypt Art and

The Irish Rovers in concert


PROVIDED BY THE VAN WEZEL
PERFORMING ARTS HALL
T'he Irish Rovers' Drunken Sailor tour lands at
the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall at 8 p.m.
Monday
The release of their 40th North American
album was spurred on by the fact that their
recording of "Drunken Sailor"gained over 3 mil-
lion hits on various YouTube sites. That number
has now reached over six million. No one was
more surprised to learn this than the Rovers
themselves, but they're happy knowing that their
particular brand of Celtic music is now reaching a
younger audience.
This year's concert-goers will enjoy Rovers'
favorites "Drunken Sailor,' "The Unicorn,' "Wasn't
That A Party' "The Orange And The Green" and
"The Dublin Pub Crawl,' as well as new Irish
Rovers favorites from their recent CD and DVD/
television special Home In Ireland (coming to
PBS this March).
All band members are from Ireland or Northern
Ireland. Founding member George Millar and his
cousin lan are from Ballymena, original member
Wilcil McDowell is from Lame, Sean O'Driscoll from
Cork, with John Reynolds and percussionist Fred
Graham both from Belfast, but due to their 1963
legendary Toronto beginnings, The Irish Rovers


have been regarded as cherished Canadian icons,
touching three generations of music lovers.These
Irishmen became so much a part of the Canadian
culture that Prime Minister Trudeau personally asked
them to become Canadian, in order to officially
represent Canada throughout the world.
Ticket prices range from $10 to $45.
For more information, call 941-953-3368 or

to food and music.
Hosted by the Italian American Club of Venice,
the annual feast is truly that with thousands of
Italian sausages, meatballs, cheese steaks,
calamari, corn dogs, pizzas, pastas, salads,
gelati, some Greek gyros and even a few funnel
cakes to carry out the carnival theme. Wash the
food down with libations ranging from lemonade,
iced tea and soft drinks to beer and wine. There
will be plenty of coffee and demitasse to go with
Italian pastries.
Entertainment will be nearly as non-stop as the
eating, beginning Thursday with Italian crooner
Don Petra performing from 5 p.m. to
6 p.m., followed by Copperhead from 6:30 p.m.


to 9 p.m. Petra has performed in Vegas and
on cruise ships. His repertoire includes songs

Pharoas, the group famous for "Wooly Bully."
The group has been entertaining in Venice and
elsewhere since 1990, mostly playing good old-


fashioned rock'n' roll.
For children of all ages who think rides make
a carnival, there will be plenty of was to be spun
in circles and up in the air on Ferris wheels and
other conveyances. Test your sense of balance on
a twisting and turning rope ladder. Most people
end up falling off and into a pile of air-filled pil-
lows. Rides are $1 each but ride fanatics can pay

Galleria Mall Antiques and Collectibles:

Where memories are found


BY JON BAUMANN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The memories of the past are around every
corner, whether it be Fostoria Crystal,
Vaseline Glass, lamps, jewelry or original
art works at the Galleria Mall Antiques and
Collectibles in Punta Gorda.
Collectible choices offer the old and the new,
history that comes to life in a cigar store Indian
or a Civil War flag. Other rare pieces include Oc-
cupied Japan figurines and porcelain, Currier and
Ives dinnerware and Waterford Crystal.
'We have something for everybody," said owner
Kathleen Vernon, who on a busy day will see eas-
ily 200 people walk through the door.
Customers have come from as far away as
England and Norway to shop.
Why do so many people come to the mall?
"I think it's because it reminds them of a time
in their past when things were less stressful. It
reminds them of family," said Vernon.


Whether it's the mixing bowl that your mother
let you lick when the cake batter was pretty much
gone or a drop-leaf table that held the Thanksgiv-
ing dinner at grandma's house, it's our memories
that we can recapture. Like treasure hunters on
a deserted island, for many of us, the inexperi-
enced and experts alike, it is the thrill of the find.
"That's the excitement. That's what keeps you
hunting for the next find,' said Vernon.
The antiques that come to the mall to be put
up for sale are originally found at estate sales,
flea markets, other trade shows, the internet and
even at yard sales. "An individual maybe won't
know what they have,' Vernon points out. "We'll
be honest with them about the piece they're sell-
ing but they have no interest in keeping it. They
just want to get rid of it."
Solid wood furniture, such as buffet tables, china
cabinets and good sturdy chairs, handmade by
craftsmen, whether cherry, oak or walnut continue to
be sought after pieces because of the quality.

Mama's Italian Restaurant: Home-style cooking


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Quality, quantity and value. According to
Paula Recca, that was her late husband
Joe Recca's philosophy for making
Mama's Italian Restaurant a success. "He strived
for those and accomplished it,' she said. "Now we
continue to cook his recipes and add some new
things, too."
An Englewood staple for almost 30 years,
Mama's is like a home away from home for many
south county residents and visitors. This busi-
ness is only as good as your customer base,' said
Recca. "Through all the ups and downs, they've
stuck with us."
What the loyal customers keep coming back
for is the wonderfully authentic Italian-American
cuisine. The recipes and sauces are from my late
Sicilian husband's family recipes,' said Recca.
"We have fabulous pizza and great traditional
Italian dishes, and they love our veal and chicken
Parmesan. The portions are so big-people
can share because we have no share charge at
Mama's."
In addition to the veal, chicken, seafood, beef,
pizza and pasta dishes, they also offer a great
selection of soups, salads and cold and hot
hoagies. And you can finish off your meal with
scrumptious Italian desserts like Lemoncello
Mascarpone and Tiramisu.
As special as the food is though, it's not the
only reason customers have been flocking to
Mama's for almost three decades. "My staff is
phenomenal, Recca said. "My average front of


house staff person has been here 15 years, and
my average kitchen staff has been here 20 years.
We're like a family at Mama's and our employees
come to work with love in their hearts."
Ana Guido is the hostess who has been greet-
ing customers at the front door of Mama's for
the past 20 years. Her husband Roberto came
to work at the restaurant at the same time
as she did, following in the footsteps of her
brother Alfonso Rojas, who had begun working
at Mama's three years earlier.
"In all that time, she has never, ever
come in to work without a smile on her
face," said Recca, "and we've been through
a lot"'
Recca's husband of five years Keith Carlock
is the general manager of the restaurant, and
she said he does a fantastic job running the
restaurant. "If there's anything I could pay
tribute to (for Mama's success), it would be
my community, my staff and my husband," she
said. She credits her son Vincent, who is now
30 years old, with helping her keep the restau-
rant open after the death of her first husband,
even though he has since moved on to another
career. "When his father passed away, my son
and I had to run everything,' she said. "He still
comes in once a month to check on things."
Longevity in the restaurant industry is rare,
especially in these economic times. Recca
realizes how fortunate she is to have been able
to not only stay open all these years, but to
have done so successfully.
"The Englewood community has been our


heart and soul," she said.'When they walk in
the door, for me it's like a guest coming into my
home.

Area 41 to perform


at Backyard Bash


BY JON BAUMANN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Area 41 is in it for the fun.
"Most of us are in our 40s and 50s.
We're beyond that point where we want to
be rock stars," rhythm guitarist, vocals and busi-
ness manager Bobby Schotte said. "We're older,
experienced musicians with a passion for music.
We want people to enjoy our music as much as
we do."
The band includes Keith Eckart, bass guitarist,
Phil Blatz on harmonica and drummer Brian
"Tank" Martin.
Schotte and Eckart, longtime friends, originally
decided to get together to form a band. Blatz, in a
previous band with Schotte called the Jetty Dogs,
quickly came on board. However the drummer
was another story entirely.


"Our original drummer got a job for Fed Ex."
Schotte explained, "I found Tank through an
ad I put on Craig's List." Martin, the young-
est member of this group, is also an ordained
minister and a stage actor with the Venice
Community Theater.
"We're doing classic rock, classic R and B,
alternative rock and classic funk,' said Schotte.
They cover songs by Van Halen, Bob Seger,
Green Day, Tom Petty and other great musicians.
"We're not doing any original material at all. Only
cover songs'" Schotte explained, "We want to do
songs that people recognize."
It can be difficult keeping a band together
when each member of the group has other
priorities, but this group quite clearly understands
that. "Family and jobs sometimes can get in the
way but, like I told them, family comes first, job

second, band comes third, always', Schotte said.
"We try to work around whatever comes up. We
can deal with it. We don't really care about being
recording artists or anything like that. We just
want to go out and have fun. We want people to
enjoy our music as much as we do."
The next opportunity to hear the band play
comes up at 1 p.m. Saturday at the 11th annual


Backyard Bash at the American Legion Post 254,
6648 Taneytown St., North Port. As with past
bashes, proceeds from the event are divided up
equally and given to the Special Olympics organi-
zation and the Children's Miracle Network.
For booking and other information, contact
Schotte at 941-412-5405 or follow Area 41 on
Facebook.

Olde World Restaurant & Lounge


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
When your parents and your aunt and
uncle own a restaurant together, it
could be said you were born into the
restaurant business. And when you go away to
culinary school and come back to be a chef at
the restaurant, it could be said you actually enjoy
working in the family business.
That's what happened to Michael Skoczylas,
whose parents are Joe and Teresa Skoczylas.
They along with Joe's sister Christine Zagrobelny
and her late husband John opened the Olde
World Restaurant & Lounge in North Port 24
years ago.
"I was born in Bridgeport, Connecticut, and
we moved here when I was eight years old,' said
Skoczylas. "I went to vo-tech for high school and
was working on the cooks' line with my father at a
young age."
That on-the-job training, along with his father's
passion for cooking, inspired Skoczylas to further
his culinary education after high school gradua-
tion. "I attended Johnson & Wales for two years,"
he said. "Then I went to the culinary arts school
in Fort Lauderdale and finished with a bachelor's
degree."
With that degree and his background, he was
able to get a great job in the restaurant industry
on the East Coast. "I worked in Fort Lauderdale
at a five-star restaurant for nine years," Skoczylas
said, "and after that, I came back here to work for
my family."
When The Olde World Restaurant & Lounge
first opened it was a franchise, but about 10 years
ago, it became independent. Many of the clever
names remain from the original menu, like the
Robin Hood, Sherwood Forest and Maid Marion
sandwiches.
"The original menu came from an old world
kind of theme,' said Skoczylas. "This is still a fam-
ily owned and operated, casual dining restaurant"'
Currently they have a 300 plus item menu and
are serving breakfast, lunch and dinner seven
days a week.

SUN PHOTO BY DEBBIE FLESSNER

The Olde World Restaurant & Lounge has been
a North Port institution for 24 years.
With the size of the restaurant, between 300 to
500 seats, depending on the configuration, there
are two chefs working at a time on any given day
and four chefs at night.
"When I cook, I do all the sauteing,
grilling and boiling," said Skoczylas. "I do
all the pasta dishes, steaks, ribs and fish
entrees'"
His 7-year-old daughter Payton seems to be
grooming herself for the family business, though
her specialty is a little different than her father's.
"She's more into baking cookies and cupcakes,"
Skoczylas said.
He, his wife Jessica and Payton find lots
of activities to engage in when he's not at the
restaurant. "We like to go to theme parks and
carnivals and festivals," he said. "My daughter
loves the beach-she's like the Little Mermaid,
and she loves aquariums."
The Olde World Restaurant & Lounge is a
long-time special occasion site in North Port,
playing host to weddings, birthdays, anniversaries
and company parties. But it also has regular
events like karaoke on Friday nights and poker on
Monday and Wednesday nights.
For event information and menus, visit their
website at www.owrl.com.
The restaurant is located at 14415 Zagrobelny
Way, North Port.
For more information, call 941-426-1155.


Casual dining and quality affordable food are the hallmarks of the Olde World Restaurant in North Port.

Expect fancy footwork in 'Footloose'


BY CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
E energetic new Lemon Bay High School
Theater Director Ashley Dignam com-
mands respect. She is a former 2007
Lemon Bay High graduate who starred as Millie in
"Thoroughly Modern Millie" and Jennyanydots in
"Cats" in high school. Dignam will be directing the
award-winning Lemon Bay High Thespians in the
musical production of "Footloose" scheduled to
open on Thursday through March 3.
"Footloose" is a production of song and dance
that began as a movie with Kevin Bacon in 1984.
In 1998, it was adapted for the Broadway stage
and revived again as a movie in 2011. It seems
that "Footloose" has appealed to a new era of
followers,' according to Dignam who believes that
teens today can relate to the issues that take
place in the play.The Lemon Bay High adapta-
tion, however, will "take a different look" at how
modern teens in rural areas interact with parents,
authority figures, and each other,' she explains.
Although the original production took place in
the '80s, the Lemon Bay cast will wear clothing
more suitable to today's teens: street clothes,
church clothes, prom dresses, tuxedos and "pou-
fie" bows. "We make many trips to buy clothing
at Goodwill second-hand shops," Dignam says.
"We have a huge cast of 83 and as many moms
and dads who help us during the many weeks of
rehearsals'" Parents provide meals for the cast,
build sets, sell tickets and raise funds for printing
costs and advertisements. One weekend in
January, the cast was in "Lock down mode'"That
meant that they rehearsed from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Playing the part of the rebellious daughter
of a preacher, Eve Grissinger rolls her eyes as
her parents, played by Casey Tervell and David
Skehan, try to talk sense into their daughter.

each day in the school auditorium.
Senior Eve Grissinger will be playing the lead
role as Ariel, a preacher's daughter. Clint Thomp-
son, a junior, will be playing Ren, a city boy who
is new to the small town of Bomont where he
tries to convince the school administrators and
reverend that dancing should be allowed in high
school. Junior Cameron Brill is the stage manager
who handles every aspect of the production.
After the series of "Footloose" performances,
16 Thespians will represent Lemon Bay High at
state competitions. The program has a history of
winning district and state competitions. In 2009,
they performed at the International Thespian
Festival under the direction of former Lemon Bay
High Theater Director, Jennifer Kelly Dignam is
confident that her group of experienced actors
will perform well in the competition and is happy
that this year's freshmen are, in her opinion,
"more than talented'"
Performances of "Footloose" are scheduled
for 3 p.m. on Sunday and March 4. Evening
performances are at 7 p.m. on Thursday-Saturday
and March 2-3.
For ticket information, call the Lemon Bay High
School box office at 941-473-0952 or stop by the
box office from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 2201 Placida
Road in Englewood.


Preacher, Casey Tervell leads his congregation
away from the sinfulness of dancing.

Frequently Asked

Questions
1. When should I take my child to see the
dentist?
Ideally, your child's first dental visit should be
by the first birthday. Your dentist will check for
decay and other problems, teach you how to
clean your child's teeth daily and identify your
child's fluoride needs. By starting dental visits
early, you'll help your child build a lifetime of
good dental habits.
2. Do I need to clean my baby's mouth if
there are no teeth yet?
Yes, begin cleaning the baby's mouth during
the first few days after birth. After every feed-
ing, wipe the baby's gums with a damp wash-
cloth or gauze pad to remove plaque. This
establishes at an early age the importance of
oral hygiene and the feel of having clean teeth
and gums.
3. Can babies get cavities?
Yes, as soon as teeth appear in the mouth,
decay can occur. One serious form of decay
among young children is Baby Bottle Tooth
Decay. This condition can occur when an infant
is allowed to nurse continuously from a bottle
of milk, formula, sugar water or fruit juice dur-
ing naps or at night.
4. When should thumbsucking stop?
Children should have ceased thumbsucking
by the time the permanent front teeth are
ready to erupt. Usually, children stop between
the ages of two and four years.
5. Can a child lose a primary tooth too
early?
Sometimes a primary tooth is lost before the
permanent tooth beneath it is ready to erupt. If
the primary teeth are lost too early, nearby
teeth can tip or move into the vacant space. To
avoid such future problems, your dentist may
recommend using a space maintainer to
reserve space for the permanent tooth.
6. Can Fluorosis develop on baby teeth?
(An abnormal condition caused by fluorine or
its compounds)
Dental fluorosis, or white or brown spots on
enamel, can develop on primary (baby) teeth
and may be indicative that a child may have
the same cosmetic defect on its permanent
(adult) teeth.
7. Should a child's dental care begin before
birth?
Yes, teeth begin to form between the third
and sixth months of pregnancy. Good health
habits are important for development of the
unborn child.
8. Should your child use protective mouth
gear?
Yes, active children require proper mouth pro-
tection to prevent injuries to the face, tongue
and lips, injuries that could include broken or
knocked out teeth and even jaw fractures. If an
accident does happen, call the dentist as soon
as possible.

Celiac patients have

to watch their grains


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I was diagnosed with
celiac disease because
of frequent diarrhea and
weight loss. I requested
that I have the celiac
blood test. It was positive.
How does a person know
if one has celiac disease? I
thought at first that I had
a thyroid problem. TF.E
ANSWER: Celiac disease
is an immune disease in
which the immune system
attacks the digestive tract
when the tract is exposed
to gluten, a protein found
in wheat, barley and rye.
Two prominent symptoms
are diarrhea and weight
loss. However, many celiac
patients have symptoms
that are often described
for other illnesses. Those
with irritable bowel
syndrome are sometimes
found to really have
celiac disease. Premature
osteoporosis is another
illness linked to celiac dis-
ease; celiac patients have
trouble absorbing enough
calcium. They also have
trouble absorbing iron, so
iron-deficiency anemia is
another illness that can be
linked to this disease.
Celiac disease was
once considered rare. It's
anything but. Now, with
attention drawn to it,
doctors are looking for it
and diagnosing it much
more frequently.
Screening tests that
detect antibodies in the
celiac patient's blood make
the diagnosis much easier.
Proof of the diagnosis of-
ten rests on a biopsy of the
small intestine that shows
changes typical of celiac
disease. A response to a
gluten-free diet is another
powerful piece of informa-
tion in establishing the
cause of intestinal-tract
symptoms.
Treatment is a gluten-
free diet. Such a diet is
not as easy as it sounds.
Instructions from a
dietitian help newly
diagnosed celiac patients
navigate the difficult wa-
ters of gluten avoidance.
Every celiac patient
should contact the Celiac
Disease Foundation, a
dependable friend that
guides patients through
the difficult early days of
treatment and provides
lifelong information on
this illness The founda-
tion's phone number is
818-990-2354, and its
website is www.celiac.org.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
What is the main function
of the thyroid gland? Can it
cause memory loss? G.R.
ANSWER: The thyroid
gland, located in the
neck, produces thyroid
hormone that keeps the
aoon

body's metabolic rate at
the right speed. Metabo-
lism involves the process-
ing of foods into energy,
the incorporation of pro-
teins into muscles and
the storage of carbohy-
drates as fuel. The gland
keeps the heart beating
at an optimum rate. It
contributes to the regula-
tion of body temperature.
Without it, we would slow
down to a snail's pace and
be perpetually fatigued.
Having too little thy-
roid hormone brings on
mental sluggishness and
affects memory.
The booklet on thyroid
diseases explains both an
overactive and underac-
tive gland. Readers can
obtain a copy by writing:

DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
You commented on 50
being a young age to have
osteoporosis. My son,
an MD, had early-onset
osteoporosis. They said
his bones were those of a
90-year-old. It perplexed
him. He found it could
be due to an overactive
parathyroid gland. On
talking to his paternal
aunt, I found out that
she and her father had
parathyroid tumors. I told
my son, and he promptly
had surgery to remove the
overproducing gland. Per-
haps your readers should
consider this when
they're given a diagnosis
of osteoporosis. J.E
ANSWER: When os-
teoporosis develops at a
younger-than-anticipated
age in a woman or a
man, all the reasons for
its occurrence have to be
considered. One of those
reasons is an overac-
tive parathyroid gland.
The four small parathy-
roid glands keep blood
calcium level within a
narrow range. If they start
producing too much of
their hormone, it steals
calcium from bones to
keep the calcium blood
level up. The result is
osteoporosis.
I hope your son is
doing fine now.

Tomato talk


Dear Heloise: What are
the differences among
tomato sauce, puree
and paste, and what is
the best use for each?
- Rhonda M., El Paso,
Texas
Tomato sauce has a
smooth, uniform tex-
ture and mild flavor.
It's typically added to
meals like spaghetti and
lasagna, or soups, chili
and stews.
Tomato puree usually
has a chunkier texture
than tomato sauce, so it
is used in dishes where
a strong tomato flavor is
desired, like meatloaf.
Tomato paste gener-
ally is thinned with wine,
broth or water. Just a
small amount added to
soups, chili and stews
gives tomato flavor while
helping to thicken the
stock.
Experiment with all
types for tomato flavor in
your recipes! Heloise
P.S.: When these items
are on sale, I stock up
and buy several cans to
have on hand for a quick
soup.

Bay leaf plant
Dear Heloise: I pur-
chased a bay leaf plant
about 16 years ago from
my local nursery. It was
about 5 inches tall, and
now is over 5 feet tall.
I keep it in the house
through the winter. In the
spring, when I'm sure the
temps will not drop below
50 degrees at night, I put
it on my back deck.


MUTTS By Patrick McDonnell


BABY BLUES By Rick Kirkman and Jerry Scott


Hints from Heloise

I have not had to
purchase bay leaves for
at least 10 years now.
Every fall, I trim the
plant back, let the leaves
dry and then store in a
jar. It's been a fun plant
to grow, and it has be-
come a great conversa-
tion piece. Suzanne,
Omaha, Neb.

Chopstick use
Dear Heloise: If you
choose to use chopsticks
at dinner in a Chinese
restaurant, bring them
back home instead
of leaving them to be
thrown out. They come
in handy as stakes for in-
door plants. Christine
R., via email
You know one of my
tricks! I'm sure there
are plenty of other uses
for chopsticks. Readers,
please send your favorite
chopstick hint to: Helo-
ise/ Chopstick, P.O. Box
795000, San Antonio, TX
78279-5000; email (please
put "Chopstick" in the
subject line) to Heloise@
Heloise.com; or fax to
210-HELOISE (435-6473).
We look forward to hear-
ing from you! Heloise

Ex-girlfriend wants to remain

friends, but without benefits


DEAR ABBY: I dated a
guy named "Jake" for two
years. He was my first love
and he meant everything
to me. Well, things hap-
pened and he broke my
heart.
After a year of not re-
ally talking, Jake is now
texting and calling to con-
vince me to be his "friend
with benefits." He tries to
sweet-talk me by calling
me pet names. Of course,
I say no over and over
each time he asks on the
phone. But the minute we
come face-to-face or hang
out, I just give in.
There will always be a
soft spot for Jake in my
heart, and I don't know
what to do. I want to
stay friends because he's
important to me, but I
don't want to be his FWB.
It brings back painful
memories.
How do I say no? Am
I overreacting? Should I
go with the flow because
it's not a big deal? I feel
like I'm in a script for a
bad movie. -WANTS TO
MOVE ON IN HOUSTON
DEAR WANTS TO
MOVE ON: Your ex-boy-
friend appears to be a
super salesman. The best
way not to buy what he's
selling is not to listen
to his pitch. The sooner
you accept you can't be
"friends" because you
lose control whenever
you see him, the sooner
you'll be able to write a
happy ending to this dra-
ma. As long as you sleep
with Jake you will not be
able to replace him with
someone who can give
you what you want and
deserve, which is a real
relationship.
DEAR ABBY: My boy-
friend of three years, "Pat-
rick," is smart, successful
and wonderful in every
way. He dresses extremely
well with attention to
detail. Many of his friends
call him a "metrosexual."
Patrick never had
braces as a child. Now, as
an adult, his teeth have
caved in and are very un-
attractive. It surprises me
that he would let his teeth
go or hasn't noticed how


Dear Abby

crooked and deformed
they are. I'm afraid to
mention it in case it
would hurt his feelings.
As we are thinking about
marriage, the prospect of
having to look at Patrick's
bad teeth, which will
likely worsen with age, is
a deterrent.
Am I being petty and
superficial or should I
suggest adult braces? Pat-
rick can more than afford
them and isn't afraid of
pain or going to the doc-
tor. My own lower teeth
could use some work, so
maybe I could suggest we
both get braces. I'm not
sure what to do. BRAC-
ING FOR AN ANSWER IN
BOULDER
DEAR BRACING: By all
means talk to your boy-
friend about the condi-
tion of his mouth as well
as good dental health. If
his teeth are as crooked
as you have described,
his bite is probably also
off which can cause
jaw problems when he's
older. Your idea of get-
ting braces with him is a
good one, and I agree it's
worth pursuing because
you won't appear to be
criticizing him. I hope he
heeds your suggestion.
DEAR ABBY: My
landlord likes to wander
around the yard and
driveway wearing only a
towel around his waist.
Sometimes he goes out
of his way to talk with
me while "dressed" that
way. Should I be con-
cerned? CALIFORNIA
RENTER
DEAR RENTER: Prob-
ably not, unless his towel
"slips," or California
experiences more gale-
force winds such as the
ones that occurred last
December.


"The Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many
waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea. Thy testi-
monies are very sure: holiness becometh thine house, 0
Lord, forever." Psalms 93: 4, 5.
Have you stopped lately to praise Him not only for
His love but for His might and miracles? Oh Father,
our creator of all that we are and all that we see
around us, we give you praise and worship in Jesus'
names. Amen.

Opening lead: Ten of 6

South, declarer at four hearts, was
on the right track to make his contract
on this deal from a club duplicate.
However, he could have doubled his
chances of making his contract. Can
you see how?
North stretched a touch with his
vulnerable raise of one heart.
However, the final contract was not
unmakable.
West led the ten of spades and


declarer saw there was really only
one way to make his contract he
had to ruff three diamonds in dummy.
Accordingly, he won the opening
lead in hand and immediately led a
diamond, losing to East's nine. East
shifted to a trump and, no matter
what declarer did, there was now no
way to land the contract try it.
It was imperative to have West win
the first diamond so that any trump
shift would come up to the closed
hand's major tenace. Therefore, at
trick two, declarer must lead the king
of diamonds from hand. As the cards
lie, the contract is now unbeatable.
West must win and, if he shifts to a
trump, he sacrifices his trump trick.
Declarer comes to hand with the
remaining high spade and ruffs
diamonds and clubs in hand ending in
dummy and, when the king of trumps
drops under the ace, loses only two
diamond tricks and a spade. Or if
West does not return a trump,
declarer can ruff three diamonds and
loses only one trick in each suit
except clubs.
