School board shortfall


By STEVEN J. SMITH
SUN CORRESPONDENT

The Sarasota County School
Board learned at its Tuesday
workshop that it could face
shortfalls of between $3.6 mil-
lion and $5.1 million in its
2012-13 operating budget.
In a report by Deputy
CFO AlWeidner, allocated
resources put forth by Gov.
Rick Scott's office, the Florida
House and the Florida Senate
were all examined and all fell
short of the total estimated
appropriations required
to meet current operating
expenses, while holding


the 7.5 percent unassigned
fund balance cushion it has
pledged to maintain in its
operating budget.
According to Weidner, at
this time the Senate's pro-
posed budget for the 2012-
13 school year comes to
$372.4 million vs. estimated
appropriations of $376 mil-
lion (a $3.6 million shortfall).
Scott's recommended budget
is $371.6 million vs. estimated
appropriations of $375.8 mil-
lion (a $4.2 million shortfall);
and the House's suggested
budget totals $370.4 mil-
lion vs. estimated appro-
priations of $375.5 million (a


$5.1 million shortfall).
These proposed budgets
reflect annual per-student
allocations of $3,565 (Scott's
plan), $3,579 (House plan) or
$3,629 (Senate plan), Weidner
said, adding that they put the
school district at the same
approximate per-student
expenditures as were seen in
the 2002-03 school year.
"But this is definitely much
better news than when we
started out in September," he
said, "because we were look-
ing at (shortfalls of) anywhere
between $14 million and

Pushing for park

Citizen input was welcomed Wednesday at an open house on future plans for Legacy Park in Venice. Staff were on
hand to take feedback and answer questions.

NEWS EDITOR

With 1-cent sales tax funds
tied up in other projects,
city leaders are pinning their
hopes on stormwater analyst
and grant guru Val Raney to
come up with funds to finally
turn the vacant cement plant
behind the Historic Venice
Train Depot into a beautiful
park.


Venice City Council gave the
nod for three grant applica-
tions last week. It's been
sitting on plans to develop a
showcase park for three years,
but can't afford it.
The park price tag for
improvements is $1.2 million.
The county has already set
aside $800,000, leaving the
project $400,000 short.
At a workshop this week,
bicycle enthusiasts, Friends of


Legacy Trail and Train Depot
docents were on hand more
for moral support than any-
thing else.
They're eager to see the park
opened.
Parks Board Member Mike
Pachota said opening Legacy
Park will be a real feather in
the city's cap, helping make
Venice a bicycling destination.

Finance officer perks cut


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Six years ago city of Venice
voters removed charter officer
status from the position of
finance director. But the previ-
ous perks remained with the
position.
On Wednesday, the perks
were eliminated.
Mayor John Holic sent a
memo to Finance Director Jeff
Snyder apprising him of the
changes.


"For unknown
reasons, the last
three city man-
agers failed to
implement this
voter-mandated
change," Holic
wrote. "This fail-
ure can no longer SNYDER
be ignored."
Snyder will retain his cur-
rent position and annual
salary of $131,040, but his
employment contract itself
will be terminated effective


Feb. 29.
Many of the perks were
written into Snyder's
employee contract when he
was hired by the city eight
months prior to the November
2006 vote.
The contract states the city
had the right to terminate
the contract if the "employer,
citizens or legislatures acts
to amend any provisions
of the charter or city code"

How to pick




the mayor?


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Editor's note: Years of conten-
tious city elections got people
thinking about basic govern-
mental issues. Should the city
elect its council members by
districts? Are current term
limits enough to deter career
politicians? Is council compen-
sation appropriate?
Last year the city appointed a
charter review board to review
those questions and more. This
series highlights the discussions
it's having on key issues.

The cities of Sarasota and
North Port, the Sarasota
County Board of Commission-
ers and the Sarasota County
School Board all elect the chair
or mayor from among their
members.
Should Venice City Council
do the same?
The Combined Council Com-
pensation and Charter Review
Committee tackled that hot
topic on Wednesday but rejected
the idea, saying it's better to elect
a mayor than to appoint one.
Council Member Emilio
Carlesimo submitted a memo
to the charter board last week
suggesting Venice might be
better served if all seven
council members were elected
at-large, then chose a mayor
from nominations submitted


I -



CHARTER DEBATES

by council members.
What he wants, he said, is a
mayor already steeped in the
issues, although he's not a fan
of rotating the mayoral posi-
tion among council members.
"This type of arrangement
would work well in Venice," Car-
lesimo said. "I'm of the opinion
that the mayor should not be
elected without having served
as a council member first. It's a
steep learning curve. Even as a
council member (we found), the
duties are more extensive than
we (originally) thought."
Committee members wel-
comed the discussion, but
were skeptical.
"For a long time (in Venice)
the citizens elected the mayor
... who they want to lead the
city," said Committee Member
Marshall Happer. "Probably
that may give him a lot more
clout in having been elected
by everybody. When you go to
deal with council, you know

make final recommendations on changes to the city charter by this summer.

The first Cycling 101 class. Another class on cycling
will be held March 10.


Cycling 101

By MONTY ANDREWS
GUEST WRITER

Recently, I announced to a group of folks
there would be another basic cycling course
conducted for those interested in refreshing
or learning basic skills of bicycling. The first
question asked was, "What are they going to
teach me, how to ride a bike? I know how to
ride a bike."
There is so much more than hopping on
your bike and taking a ride around the city. A
knowledgeable cyclist should have a general
familiarity with the laws, rules and rights as
a bicyclist, as well as utilize correct riding
techniques.
To assist in helping develop a more skillful
community of cyclists, the Bike/WalkVenice
committee has arranged for another course
in basic cycling. Scheduled for Saturday,
March 10, in the community room at the
Venice City Hall, 401 W Venice Ave., the sec-
ond Cycling 101 class will be conducted by
three certified instructors.
Starting at 8 a.m., the eight-hour course
will cover traffic laws, avoiding crashes, bike
maintenance, ride etiquette, optional cloth-
ing and equipment and various other topics
of interest. The course is divided into both
indoor class sessions and outdoor practical
application covering cycling techniques such
as emergency stops, quick turns, lane chang-
ing, scanning and a
group ride.
Cost for the full day
of instruction, educa-
tional materials and
lunch is $20. Those
interested in partici-
pating are asked to call
Huss Malik, LCI, at
941-525-3753 for addi-
tional information.

The Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office has
arrested Jamaine Out-
ing, 32,
100 block
Avenida
de la Isla,
Nokomis,
S a habitual
traffic
offender
OUTING with a his-
tory of drug
crimes who again tried
to elude deputies by
speeding through a resi-
dential neighborhood.
According to an SCSO
report:
A deputy spot-
ted Outing at about
3 p.m. Wednesday and
knew the Venice Police
Department was look-
ing for him in con-
nection with a crime
early that morning.
When the deputy tried
to pull over Outing on
U.S. 41 in Nokomis he
sped through streets
in Laurel, driving over
lawns, breaking two
exposed sewer pipes
and endangering at least
two pedestrians. Outing
tried to flee on foot but
was taken into custody
without incident.
In addition to VPD
charges of burglary and
petit theft, Outing was
charged with fleeing to
elude and for being a
habitual traffic offender.
He has been arrested


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


42 times in Sarasota
County for numerous
drug charges, battery
and torturing animals.
His driving offenses
began when he was just
14. Records show Outing
has only been to prison
once in Florida a
three-year sentence for
possession of cocaine.

Phishing warning
The Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office is aware
of at least two phish-
ing scams circulating
on local cellphones and
email inboxes and warns
residents about what to
look for.
Phishing (pronounced
"fishing") is a type of
online identity theft
in which con artists
send emails or text
messages that appear
to come from institu-
tions you trust, like
your bank or credit card
company. The mes-
sage includes links to
fraudulent sites asking
questions designed
to steal your personal
data, account infor-
mation or passwords.
Criminals then use this
information to commit


fraud, steal money from
your account, open
new accounts in your
name or obtain official
documents using your
identity.
One recent email and
text message appears
to come from Comcast
Xfinity and includes
a link to a form that
requests the recipient
to provide financial
information and other
identifiers that should
remain private.
Another scam email
appears to come from
the American Institute
of CPAs and claims the
recipient is somehow
involved in unlaw-
ful income tax refund
activity. The AICPA has
issued a warning advi-
sory about this scam:
Do not open suspi-
cious emails or respond
to such texts. Never click
on the links they contain
or reply to the message.
To confirm the authen-
ticity of an email or text
message, check with
that institution directly.

that. You accept that
immediately."
"I agree," said Commit-
tee Chair Jeff Boone. "In
my experience, when the
mayor isn't elected by the
people, it does minimize
the office."
Boone especially
disliked the notion of
rotating the chair.
"You end up with
people who frankly don't
run meetings very well,"
Boone said. "Nobody is
not going to give them
their turn, and you end
up being stuck with that."
He pointed to the may-
oral portraits decorating
council chambers.
"Looking at the history
on the wall, the cur-
rent system is not bad,"
Boone said. "There might
be one or two mayors
who didn't do a good job.
It may have been a coin-
cidence they didn't serve


FEBRUARY 25, 2012 WEEKEND EDITION


on council (first)."
"My concern," said
Committee Member Greg
Shanika, "is if we make
that a condition, we
really restrict the field of
candidates. We may end
up with only one or two."
"What if no one wants
it?" asked Committee
Member Mary Balducci.
"I don't know what you
do there."
The entire elected
council was in the
audience at Wednesday
morning's charter com-
mittee meeting, includ-
ing Mayor John Holic.
Some weighed in. Most
weren't in favor of the
change either.
"I really trust our
electorate," Holic said.
"They are going to make
mistakes once in a while.
They will correct it when
the next election takes
place."
The bigger concern,
Holic said, is finding
qualified candidates to
run.
"If you do, the rest of it is


a moot point," Holic said.
"I come from a place
where if it ain't broke,
don't fix it," said Council
Member Jim Bennett.
"Whether you like the
(current) council or
candidates who lost (last
election), the system is
working quite well."
Council Member Bob
Daniels said he appreci-
ated Carlesimo's concern.
Daniels said he found
himself in a similar situ-
ation when he proposed
districting, in which
each council member is
elected from a specific
zone within the city.
"(What) I found in Ven-
ice is, the biggest prob-
lem is getting qualified
candidates to even step
up," Daniels said. "We
have to be careful about
placing more restrictions
on this council. It's all
about good leadership."
Boone reminded the
committee that, techni-
cally, the city has a weak-
mayor, strong-city-man-
ager type of government.


"My experience tells
me how powerful a
mayor actually ends up
depends on the person-
ality," Boone said. "But
it also has to do with the
city manager.
"Clearly, when you
have a city manager who
is willing to disagree
with the mayor, and is
therefore a stronger city
manager, that makes a
difference, versus one
who will do whatever the
mayor will say."
"No matter how you
structure the election,"
he added, that has a
major impact.
Carlesimo has com-
plained previously about
not getting certain items
on the agenda. A year ago
he suggested council as
a whole set the agenda
each month, but that idea
didn't gain traction with
fellow council members.
Final recommenda-
tions will be forwarded to
council this summer.

He displayed a photo
of the bicycle rack in
front of his restaurant,
Sharky's on the Pier,
filled with 40 or more
bicycles an indication
of activity in the area,
thanks to the Legacy and
the Venetian Waterway

Pachota said. "This will

Still, his economic
forecast calls for further
cuts, which could come
in the form of reduced
furlough days, combined
classes, vacated positions
that won't be filled, raises
that employees may not
see and more job elimi-
nations although he
would not specify how
many at this early date.
"I've done this all
based on formulas
right now," he said. "We
have not actually given

pertaining to the finance
director's powers and
duties. Although the
charter was changed, no
action was taken on the
contract, until now.
Gone are:
Free health care ben-
efits. Snyder previously
voluntarily offered to pay
the employee portion
(equal to $600 family
coverage per month) of
the health care premium
when other changes were
made last year to the city
health plan.
A deferred compensa-
tion plan (10 percent of
the annual salary con-
tributed by the city or
$13,000 annually).
The city's 10 per-
cent contribution to the
retirement plan (equal to
around $50,000 over the
past six years).
A severance package
(equal to six months' sal-
ary, or $65,500).
There are noncontract
changes, too.
No longer will Snyder's
presence be required at
the dais during council
meetings, and no lon-
ger will his presence be
requested at agenda-
setting meetings. In the
future, the finance direc-
tor will be seated at the
rear of council chambers
with other department
heads.
Holic said Friday the
changes should have
been made long ago
by any number of city
managers.
"With Alan Bullock
being an interim (city
manager), I didn't want to
put him in a position that
would make it difficult
for him to operate," Holic
said. "And I definitely
didn't want (incoming
City Manager) Ed LaVal-
lee to step into it. It just
made sense to do it now.
It's housekeeping. Not a
pleasant job, but one that
has to be done."
There will be no
attempt at clawbacks, as
it was the city's respon-
sibility to implement the
change.
Council Member Bob
Daniels pushed the issue.
He discovered the perks


while auditing the city
manager's job last year.
"Shame on the city for
not taking care of that
back in 2006," Daniels
said.
"It's not a performance
report," Holic stressed,
calling Snyder a valuable
employee.
"It's carrying out the
will of the voters, and


terminus of Legacy Trail,
he said, is already a hub
of activity and a drop-off
point for bicyclists tour-
ing the area.
Venice Area Historical
Society members rec-
ommended a railroad-
themed playground for
children and suggested
there may be private
funding available for
such an amenity.
But they're opposed
to a concession stand
inside the historic depot
that helped build the city
and was used by Ringling
Brothers and Barnum &
Bailey Circus for years.
County efforts to install

budgets out to schools
and departments for
more revisions and
fine-tuning."
School Superintendent
Lori White reminded the
board that a report is due
on Feb. 29 from MGT
of America, the public
sector management firm
hired by local group
Citizens for Academic
Success and Excellence
for $114,500. MGT is
taking an in-depth look
at all of the operations
of the school district,
division by division, to
make recommendations
for improving their effi-
ciency and effectiveness.
"What I would like to

should have been carried
out long ago," he said.
Snyder was out of the
office on Friday and
unable to be reached for
comment.

a concession stand have
stalled.
"The city and county
should put to rest the
notion of concessionaire
use of the depot struc-
ture itself," said VAHS
President Barbara Smith.
"Its two waiting rooms
with decidedly differ-
ent amenities stand as
a reminder of Venice's
racially segregated era,"
Smith said. "Venice
needs to preserve its very
unique niche of rail-
roading history, which
made the city's construc-
tions and beginnings
possible."
The county owns two

suggest is that staff pre-
pare a report to you on
those recommendations
- particularly those that
have a fiscal impact -
to talk to what's doable
for next year, what are
the ramifications, what
would require collective
bargaining," White said.
"This could take place
in a one-and-a-half or
two-hour time slot at
your March 13 workshop.
Then have an executive
session on that same
date, after the workshop,
to begin as a preliminary
meeting to open collec-
tive bargaining."
School board members
unanimously agreed.

other nearby buildings
that could also house
concessionaires.
The most-commented-
on amenity was the
bandshell. Nearby
residents want to make
sure it's pointed south
or southwest, away from
their homes.
"I don't see why not,"
Raney said.
They also want more
parking.
"I already know we will
not be able to do that,"
Raney said. "When we
first submitted that plan,
the Florida Communities
Trust (which funded half
the park) kept shrinking


the amount of parking.
They said you cannot
make a parking lot out
of it."
The planned number
of spots at Legacy Park is
60 spaces, plus eight for
kayaks and 16 more for
boat trailers at the north
end.
How likely is the city
to win the grants? Raney
recently learned one of

the programs was not
funded by the state.
"It's getting harder,"
Raney said. "But you still
have to try.
"It's like playing the
Florida lottery. You can't
win if you don't play.
What if they do fund a
particular program? You
don't want to be the one
who didn't apply."

OUR VIEW


Enforcement i


to seat belt use


A reader called the other day and
put a bug in our ear. Had we
noticed, he asked, how many
victims of the fatal car crashes re-
ported in this newspaper hadn't been
wearing seat belts? And how many
were young?
The latest was a brief item included
in Police Beat in the dailies on a recent
day: a 21-year-old Sarasota man who
died in an early morning crash in Arca-
dia. No seat belt. His point was that
there should be something more that
we, state lawmakers or the police could
do to get more people to buckle up.
Yes, that certainly would be a good
thing, because, yes, seat belts do save
lives. But would higher fines help?
And how much more time and atten-
tion should police officers devote to
seat belt scofflaws?
Tougher laws naturally drive behav-
ior. Before June 2009, the failure to use
a seat belt was a secondary offense in
Florida, which meant police had to
have another reason to pull someone


over before writing a ticket. The law
that made mandatory safety belt
usage a primary offense the base
fine is $30, but a ticket will cost you
$111 with fee tack-ons did prompt
a spike in compliance. Safety belt
use bumped along in the 60 percent
range during the 1990s, but quickly
rose in the early 2000s as laws were
strengthened and advertising cam-
paigns increased, reaching 80 percent
in 2006.
After the primary-violation law took
effect, estimated usage again jumped:
Last June, the annual Florida State-
wide Observational Survey of Belt
Use put the rate at 88 percent. Would
higher fines bring even higher usage?
Not necessarily.
Connecticut has a base fine of
$92 and a usage rate of 88 percent.
Colorado's base fine is $71 and its rate
is 82 percent. Then there is Michigan,
which has the highest usage of all
states 97 percent with a primary
fine of only $25. But what Michigan


has is robust enforcement. State law
enforcement agencies set up annual
two-week "seat belt enforcement
zones" day and night, much like DUI
checkpoints. They advertise where
they'll be set up beforehand.
Part of the National Highway Traf-
fic Safety Administration's Click It or
Ticket campaign, the Michigan effort
has been extremely successful. Safety
belt use soared over the past decade.
At the same time, traffic deaths fell
from 1,382 in 2000 to 871 in 2009. The
Michigan State Police also notes seat
belt citations have fallen in recent
years, simply because more people are
complying with the law.
Florida police agencies also have
joined in the Click It or Ticket enforce-
ment campaign, but not to the extent
of checkpoints. Last June, for instance,
the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office
participated with targeted, two-week
enforcement, and deputies wrote 681
tickets. Deputies watched for scofflaws
during their normal course of duty. In


some instances, they set up spotters at
intersections who would identify viola-
tors and call deputies down the road.
The campaign was publicized and the
public warned ahead of time.
Would a more-concerted effort along
these lines throughout the state result
in higher usage numbers? The Michi-
gan experience indicates it would.
Back to our caller's original point,
64 percent of 21- to 24-year-olds killed
in traffic accidents in 2010 were not
belted, according to Florida Click It or
Ticket. Throughout the state in 2010,
571 of the people who died and 10,518
who were injured were not belted.
Around here, nine people died due
the lack of safety belt use in Charlotte
County, 12 in Sarasota and one in
DeSoto.
It may be that a more vigorous law
enforcement campaign especially
at night would drive compliance.
It's worth consideration, given the
possibility of lowering the number of
deaths and injuries.


Still smitten by



magic of the circus


I was never taken to the
circus as a child; my first expe-
rience came when I took my
daughter, then just 4 years old.
That was more than 35 years
ago, and I have never forgotten
it. It was magic!
Although the arena was
small, and there were no
lions, tigers or bears, there
were tightrope artists and
small dogs doing amazing
tricks; there were clowns and
there was cotton candy; and
the magic of the circus was
reflected in my child's face
as she laughed out loud at
the antics of the clowns and
looked up in awe at the beauti-
ful girl on the flying trapeze.
Her joy was priceless; the
magic of the circus is priceless.
And now that same magic is
coming to Venice, and we get
to see it all.
On Feb. 23, the great ship
carrying the magic of the cir-
cus arrived in Miami. Coming
all the way from Milan, Italy,
its precious cargo will make
its way to our small town,
where the Big Top will be
erected, the costumes will be
carefully laid out and circus
performers from many parts
of the world will gather to
entertain us in true interna-
tional circus style.
Are we ready for this? Are our
children ready for this? I am so
excited, I just can't wait.
This is what we will see.
The spectacular Cirque
Italia Aquatic Show is not your
ordinary or typical traditional
circus show. Fascinating and
exciting, with its illuminated
fountains and sparkling
performers balancing high
above the water, we watch as
the magic and mystery of the
ocean and the creatures of


the sea come alive before our
eyes.
Never before seen in the
United States, Cirque Italia
brings us an unforgettable
spectacular that you will not
want to miss and that will both
stun and charm audiences of
all ages.
Located in the Jacaranda
Plaza, on the corner of Sham-
rock Boulevard and U.S. 41,
the show will debut with a
premiere performance at The
Venice Circus Arts Founda-
tion's special fundraiser event,
held Thursday, March 23,
Friday, March 24, and Sunday,
March 25.
Over the last year I have
come to know and to appre-
ciate the hard work and
dedication of the organizers
and volunteers of The Ven-
ice Circus Arts Foundation
and I applaud their efforts to
resurrect what was once, and
can be again, the magic of the
circus. I hope they succeed in
renovating the Circus Arena,
not just because it will bring
prosperity and excitement to
our town, but also because
I feel that we need to value
and to appreciate our circus
history by remembering how
it once was, and then creating
a new future of circus his-
tory for ourselves and for our
children.
So much of our country's
history is already lost to us in
the name of progress; so many
old buildings and historic sites
have been neglected for newer
and shinier and supposedly
better projects. We need to
hold onto magic and fun and
spectacular; we need to bring
this magic to our children.
My daughter still remem-
bers her first circus experi-
ence. Why? you might ask. My
answer would be, because the
circus has heart, and it makes
us feel good.
A portion of the proceeds
benefit The Venice Arts Foun-
dation and the Save the Venice
Circus Arena project.
Tickets are $15-$35 for adults
and $9-$15 for children. There
are special discounts on lots
of 50 tickets or more. Call
941-485-7675.

Change needed. We need
a new food concession at
Snook Haven. I say good rid-
dance to Mr. Keefe. The food
is mediocre and the service is
very poor. Let's keep the food
simple and finger happy.
Not that free. The article in
the Gondolier says that the
lady who conducts the yoga
class on the beach is com-
pensated by her participants'
praise. Actually, she makes
several hundred dollars a week
because people tip her by
putting money in her knap-
sack, which she then takes
with her every day. It would be
interesting to let the IRS know
whether or not she's report-
ing this extraordinary income
as compensation when she
does her income tax return.
Likewise, the county should be
getting some kind of a share of
that fund for providing the free
beach.
More time. On a recent
Saturday evening, some 75
people with money to spend
were enjoying karaoke at Ven-
ice Beach. At promptly 6 p.m.
the concession stand closed.
The city should specify longer
hours when a lease amounts
to a monopoly. The hours of
operation should match the
public interest in the events
taking place.
Editor's Note: Sarasota
County handles the beach
concession contract on behalf
of the city under an interlocal
agreement.
Inefficient. Here we go,
government intervention
again and again. Is it efficient
by any standard in business?
Absolutely not. If an employee
had missed by nine months
money owed and adding up to
$38,000, he would be relocated
to a job that had little or no
responsibility or fired. Our
style of government has little
else to do but photograph


Let 'em


Have It
toilets. Come on. The thought
of micromanaging our com-
munity is frightening. Again,
someone thinks we should
raise fees on the lunch site.
And if you look at most busi-
nesses, they would be happy to
have 12 or 15 percent earnings
after taxes and expenses. And
our city wants even more?
We can look at the wonderful
investment that the county
made at Snook Haven. Our
government should govern
and not get into a business it
knows nothing about. About
new businesses that are trying
to come to Venice, they're hav-
ing trouble with permitting.
If there was a business there,
what would be so difficult with
opening a similar retail shop?
Government looks to be our
own worst enemy.
Mark them. Parking at the
jetties needs to be addressed.
With the haphazard park-
ing arrangement at the South
Jetty and the number of cars,
it would be impossible for
emergency vehicles to pass
through there. Maybe marking


particular slots for vehicles is
required.
Misinterpretation. It'd like
to make a comment about a
column titled "The Best?" by
Tim Smolarick regarding Mitt
Romney stating that he was
not interested in the poor. I
think Mr. Smolarick misunder-
stands. Language, you know, is
subject to interpretation. My
feeling is that he didn't worry
about the poor because they're
covered by a multitude of ser-
vices. Fifty percent of people
don't pay taxes and another
fifty percent are receiving food
stamps and all kinds of sub-
sidies. So that's what I think
he meant. He was not con-
cerned that they were being
addressed, and the rich didn't
need to be addressed because
they didn't need any services.
So, Tim, read it with a different
perspective.
My decision. Are the county
commissioners crazy? You
people are giving our taxes
to nonprofit organizations?
That is not what I pay taxes
for. Taxes are for infrastruc-
ture, maintenance and public
conveniences like parks and
public restrooms. I decide who
gets my contributions, not you.

Why fire department staffing matters


The city of Venice has
been implementing bud-
get reductions for many
years now. The cuts have
now shifted to public
safety. The firefighters
and the Suncoast Profes-
sional Firefighters union
have fought for staffing
levels not only to protect
the safety of the citizens
but also their own safety.


I feel an obligation to
describe a recent situ-
ation about which I am
extremely proud of our
firefighters and leaders in
our department.
Friday night, Feb. 17,
was a busy night in the
city of Venice. The staff-
ing level was already
down by one firefighter
due to budget cuts. A
very common call came
in around 8:30 p.m. for
a medical emergency
and the fire engine on
the island responded.
Venice Regional Medi-
cal Center happened
to be so busy it was on
diversion. This means it
cannot handle any more
of a certain type call,


so the ambulance that
responded with the fire
engine had to transport
the patient to Sarasota
Memorial Hospital.
When a medical emer-
gency requires more
than the two people
working on the ambu-
lance, the staff from the
fire engine will drive or
assist with life-saving
measures in the back
while en route to the
hospital. This was the
case Friday night. The
staff of the fire engine
left the engine on the
scene and both city of
Venice firemedics drove
and assisted while en
route to Sarasota Memo-
rial Hospital. Now our


response staff was down
by three from previous
years in the city.
Around 9 p.m. a call
came in about a house
fire in Bay Indies. With
fewer firefighters than
usual, the fire engine
staff was able to keep
the fire from spread-
ing to nearby mobile
homes and other units
responded from both
Nokomis Fire Depart-
ment and Sarasota
County Fire Department.
While they working
the mobile home fire
and clearing the house
for possible trapped
residents, another call
came in about a fire in a
restaurant on the island.


This was the situa-
tion: With no available
fire engines, we had a
reported fire in a busi-
ness directly connected
to a hotel after 9 p.m.,
when some guests could
be asleep.
Once again, resources
were sent from the
nearby Nokomis Fire
Department and Sara-
sota County Fire Depart-
ment, while aVenice fire
engine quickly cleaned
up enough to go assist in
the effort to keep the fire
from spreading.
A year ago we would
have called our fire
marshal to investigate
the cause of these fires,
but now we must call


in the state fire mar-
shal's office, which sent
someone from northern
Pasco County, keeping
fire engines on scene
unable to respond to
other emergencies in
the city.
City of Venice firefight-
ers love working for and
serving the citizens of
Venice and only ask for
the support needed to
ensure the safety of the
citizens, and also the
responders, who are
doing their best.

I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Airport issues
need attention
Editor:
Recent articles in the
Gondolier and street gos-
sip suggest the following
need to be examined by
all Venetians.
The Rotary Art Festi-
val is an excellent event
for Venice. Bob Vedder,
writing in the Gondolier,
suggested problems with
the timing of this event.
That may be true, but the
biggest problem is the
airport where it is held.
It is ugly. Wind, dust,
jet noise and soot do
not invite more-upscale
vendors and artisans, let
alone attendees.
Could Rotary try for
West Blalock Park or the
area around the Venice
Art Center or Venice
Community Center? This
could result in positive
spillover for downtown
businesses while not
taking away downtown
parking.
The Feb. 4 Gondolier


headline "Survey: Coun-
cil doing a good job"
needs attention. This
headline appears based
on Mayor Holic's com-
ments and 90 returned
surveys (who was sur-
veyed?) out of a potential
of thousands. "Forty-nine
respondents gave council
a good or excellent rat-
ing. Another 25 found
council did a fair job.
Fourteen gave council a
poor rating." Twelve gave
council an excellent rat-
ing. Venetians, read the
article, do the numbers
and think about that
headline.
Reviving the Circus
Arena is worth pursu-
ing. While airport/jet-
port safety is a concern,
another problem that
is seldom addressed is
noise and vibrations
from jets and planes.
This may not be compat-
ible with entertainment
such as music or theater
offerings. Can Venice
control the airport and
work around these


problems? If yes, let's go
for it and redo the arena.

Henry Pfeifle
Venice

Had it with
delinquent tenants
Editor:
Only in the world of
government does a ten-
ant who isn't paying the
rent get to stay on with
the promise of doing
better.
There's an old saying
in real estate, "An empty
house is better than
a bad tenant." I don't
know who is making the
decisions regarding the
Snook Haven restaurant,
but the taxpayers should
be up in arms over the
subsidizing of the rent
for the business.
Look, it is the season
in Florida, the time of
year where we hope to
sock some money away
to carry us through the
lean months. These folks
will be paying backward


for last summer, so next
summer they will fall
behind again.
Sarasota County con-
tinues to acquire prime
properties with no plan
of action regarding them.
In North Port, Warm
Mineral Springs, which
is currently being run
by the previous own-
ers, will soon fall under
the County umbrella
to manage it. Hope-
fully, it doesn't end up
with another nonpaying
tenant.
Personally, I'm weary
of paying for prop-
erty that was removed
from the tax rolls when
acquired by the govern-
ment, and then must be
supported by me again
when tenants don't pay.

Trail users should
be more careful
Editor:
I am certain that by


now many people in the
Sarasota and Venice area
have made use of the
beautiful Legacy Trail,
either on foot, bike, roller
blades, stroller, etc. What
a wonderful addition to
our already breathtaking
Sarasota County.
The trail offers a great
place to exercise, take in
the fresh air and, often,
witness rare wildlife. It
has, however, become
increasingly obvious, due
to the vast numbers of
people who are travel-
ing on the trail, that
important safety precau-
tions need to be taken
to prevent accidents and
injuries arising from col-
lisions. There has already
been one very serious
injury that occurred as a
result of a biker colliding
with an elderly woman
on foot.
There should be signs
posted alerting trail users


that pedestrians have
the right of way, and that
courtesy warnings or bike
bells should be used to
let people know you are
coming up from behind
and intend to pass. Every-
one, whether on foot or
on wheels, should stay to
the right side of the path
unless they are passing.
People should also keep
in mind that headphones
may hinder one's ability
to hear other travelers
who may be approaching.
All in all, everyone
needs to be more atten-
tive to all the people who
want to enjoy the Legacy
Trail as a healthy and
accident-free place to
stay or become fit. Com-
mon courtesies would go
a long way to assuring
everyone will be safe out
there.

Ex-partner admits blame in Buchanan funding flap


By MARC R. MASFERRER
BRADENTON HERALD

A former business
partner has admitted
he was responsible for
improperly reimbursing
employees for contri-
butions they made to
U.S. Rep. Vern Buchan-
an's congressional
campaigns.
Under a consent
judgment announced
Tuesday, a federal court
in Jacksonville found that
Sam Kazran committed
"nonknowing and non-
willful" violations when
he reimbursed employ-
ees of a Jacksonville car
dealership he co-owned
with Buchanan a total of
$67,900 for contributions
they made to Buchanan's
congressional campaigns
in 2005, 2006 and 2007.
Kazran's attorney
said Tuesday that he
is "just a pawn in a
scheme devised by Vern
Buchanan" to launder
campaign contributions.
The consent judg-
ment states Kazran had
argued that Buchanan,


R-Longboat
Key, "had
a com-
manding
knowledge
of election
laws far
superior"
BUCHANAN to Kazran's,
and that he
did not know the reim-
bursements were illegal.
Attorney Robert Stok
said Kazran agreed to a
settlement because of
the expense of taking the
case to trial. He said the
judgment does not clear
Buchanan because the
congressman was not a
party in the lawsuit filed
last year against Kazran
by the Federal Elections
Commission.
"It's impossible from a
legal or factual point of
view for Mr. Kazran to be
guilty and Mr. Buchanan
not to be guilty," Stok
said.
Stok said that without
Buchanan's involve-
ment, Kazran would not
have had any motive
for reimbursing the
contributions.


An attorney for
Buchanan applauded the
settlement.
"The consent judg-
ment against Sam Kazran
that the FEC released
today confirms what we
have said all along: Mr.
Kazran is the one who
instructed his employees
and family members to
contribute to the cam-
paign, and Mr. Kazran is
the one who authorized
their reimbursement in
violation of the law," Wil-
liam McGinley said in a
statement.
"We are pleased that
the truth finally has been
established and hope
this puts an end to the
false allegations that
Congressman Buchanan
was aware of Mr. Kazran's
misconduct," McGinley
said.
As part of the settle-
ment, Kazran will pay the
FEC civil penalties total-
ing $11,000 over the next
two years. Stok said it
was a "nominal amount"
because the current
value of the penalties is
about $7,000.


Stok contended the
FEC would not have
agreed to such a small
settlement if it thought it
had a strong case against
Kazran. The judge had
encouraged both sides
to strike a deal, Stok
said.
While Buchanan was
not a party to the case,
the court action is the
latest legal victory for
Buchanan as he tries to
fend off questions about
his ethics and how he
has raised money for his
campaigns.
The FEC last year
closed its investigation
of Kazran's allegations
without taking action
against the congressman,
in part because of doubts
investigators had about
Kazran's credibility.
Attorneys for
Buchanan have acknowl-
edged that the Justice
Department is conduct-
ing a separate investiga-
tion of Buchanan's cam-
paign finances. Justice
has declined to comment
on its probe.
The House Ethics


Committee also is con-
sidering whether to
launch an investigation
into allegations that
Buchanan improperly
failed to list on financial


disclosure reports cer-
tain positions he holds
with companies and
other organizations, and
more than $14,000 in
income.

It tookVenice until the sev-
enth inning to string any hits
together in the Class 7A-District
11 opener against Sarasota Fri-
day at Ronald K. Drews Field in
Sarasota.
By then, it was a little too late,
as the Sailors had scored a run
in the fourth and two in the fifth
en route to a 3-1 victory over the
Indians.
The loss snapped a four-
game winning streakVenice had
against Sarasota.
Venice had at least one runner
on base in the first five innings,
with four hits and a walk, but
three of the hits occurred with
two outs.
The Indians had one runner
reach second base in the second
inning but a groundout ended
the scoring threat.
"We have to be a little
bit tougher mentally at the
plate," said Venice coach Craig
Faulkner. "We have to have a
game plan and execute it. We
didn't execute the game plan
we had. We were very excited
to play. First district game and
off for a whole week. We were a
little hyped up and couldn't relax
at the plate."
Faulkner admitted that a six-
day layoff wasn't good for his
team.
The Indians (2-2 overall, 0-1
district) last played Feb. 11 in
Miami.
Venice's Tyson Albert and
Sarasota's Trevor Wilson sped
through the respective line-
ups quickly over the first three
innings.
Albert allowed just one hit
through three innings while Wil-
son gave up just three singles.
"We've got a good outing by
our starting pitcher but when
every pitch has to be perfect
because it's 0-0 game, it gets
tougher to pitch," said Faulkner.
"We have to give him some
runs. He (Wilson) did like he
expected. He threw strikes with
his breaking ball. We were look-
ing for some of the pitches but
missed them. Instead of going
with our game plan, we were
thinking too much and taking
pitches we should have hit."
Sarasota (2-1, 1-0) got on the
scoreboard with a run in the

bottom of the fourth inning.
Senior Brian Pietranton led
off with a single into the right-
center gap. An over-run ball by
the outfielder advanced Pietran-
ton to second base. J.J. Gould
singled between first and second
base, moving Pietranton to third
base. Danny Mars followed with
sacrifice fly down in foul ter-
ritory down the left-field line,
scoring Pietranton.
The Sailors added two
unearned runs in the bottom of
the fifth inning with the help of
two Venice errors and one hit.
Ronnie Filipkowski knocked
in the first run with an RBI
single and Jonathon Berman's
grounder scored the other run.
"One of our strengths is
defense," said Faulkner. "Not

Taylor Ranch Elementary gets new principal


By ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER

Heron Creek's loss is
Taylor Ranch's gain.
Wednesday afternoon,

County
School
District
announced
Bill Bolan-
der, princi-
pal at Heron
Creek
BOLANDER
Middle
School, will take over at
Taylor Ranch Elementary
School in Venice, effec-
tive July 1.
Bolander will succeed
Kelly Ellington, who
served as Taylor Ranch's
principal from March
2004 to January 2012,
when she became the
district's director of pro-
fessional development.
"I was an elementary
principal for eight years
in Indiana before com-
ing to Heron Creek,"
Bolander said. "I've been
thinking about going
back to the elementary
level for a while, and
these opportunities don't
arise every day."
He said it will be an
adjustment.
"I've been out of it long
enough where I'll have
to reacquaint myself
with those things (at the

County

issues 'bad'

checks

By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

Some 900 county poll
workers received pay-
checks from the office of
Clerk of the Circuit Court
and County Comptrol-
ler Karen Rushing that
included incorrect bank
routing numbers.
The checks, issued
Feb. 17, for between $150
and $250, were mailed to
those who worked at the
polls during the Jan. 31
Republican presidential
preference primary, or
that evening in the super-
visor of election's office.
"People have already
deposited them," Kathy
Dent, elections supervi-
sor, said Wednesday.
"Some have cashed
them."
Peter H. Ramsden,
county finance director,
said the mistake occurred
because software was
not fully updated after
the clerk changed banks
about a year ago.
When the mistake was
discovered, Dent's staff
spent all day Tuesday
calling the poll workers
asking them to return
the checks to the clerk's
payroll department.
Those who already had
cashed or deposited their
checks were asked where
those transactions took
place. The clerk's office
wanted to ensure that
poll workers did not incur
charges from their banks
for bad checks. Substi-
tute checks were issued
Wednesday.
One poll worker said he
cashed his check. After
he heard about the snafu,
he returned the money
to the bank and retrieved
the check, which he
then mailed back to the
county.
"We'll make the poll
workers whole," said
Ramsden, who added in
a letter that accompanied
the new checks that he's


"very sorry for any incon-
venience this may have
caused."
Dent said her staff
would proofread the
replacement checks.

elementary level)," he
said.
An "A" school, Heron
Creek recently was
named the district's first
Model School for Positive
Behavior Support by the
Florida Positive Behav-
ior Support Project,
which uses data about


discipline referrals to
change negative behavior
on campus and reinforce
positive behavior. With
the program in place,
HCMS saw a 40 percent
reduction in discipline
referrals in 2010-11.
Tuesday, the school was
recognized by the state


for the accomplishment.
"We were the only
ones in Sarasota County
to get that (model
school) designation,"
Bolander said. "Conse-
quently, our test results
were the best they've
ever been in the history
of the school, and I think


those go hand in hand."
The change won't be
without its downside.
"I'll miss the teachers.
... We've gone through
the transitions with the
budgeting, and staff has
been condensed down
to the same consistent
group of people. I think


that's a reason for the
success: We've had the
core staff members," he
said. "I'll miss the kids
too. Middle school kids,
while they're challenging
at times, they're also full
of energy and personali-
ties. You get attached to
those personalities."

"Shopping Is

Twice As Divine"

Dur Divine Consign, 203 W. Miami
Ave., has long been known as the place
to find gently used, quality merchandise
including ladies and mens clothing and
accessories, fine and costume jewelry,
fine china, antiques and collectibles.
With the opening last year of a second
location, 170 James St., it's now the go-
to place for furniture, art and accessories
as well.
Divine Consign started in one room in
a building where the Venice Post Office
is today and in 1971 moved to the
current West Miami Avenue address,
where it now occupies 2,700 feet of
space. In business for more than 50
years, it's run by more than 100
volunteers of the Episcopal Church
Women of St Mark's Episcopal Church
for the benefit of its charities and
mission programs. When that location
could no longer handle the volume of
larger items being consigned, the James
Street store, a block north of Center
Road on the bypass, was opened. The
new, larger location has 5,000 feet of
gently used, quality furniture, art and
home accessories. Both shops have
friendly and knowledgeable staff to help
with all your purchases.
A major source of consignment items
for both stores is people who are moving
back up north or to retirement
communities but who can't hold yard
sales because they live in gated
communities. That provides shoppers
with excellent opportunities to find
bargains.
"Anyone buying a condo or home in
this market could easily furnish the
entire home from these two locations,"
said Store Manager Diane Kerin.
Besides consignments, Divine Consign
gets donations from people who are
consolidating or downsizing, moving or
redecorating, and can provide help with
an estate sale. Donations are taken
during store hours, and arrangements can
be made to pick up larger items free of
charge.
Proceeds from the stores provide
scholarships in the parish for preschool,
elementary and college students; funds
to Habitat For Humanity and other
outreach programs; scholarships and
funds to build schools and churches in a
companion diocese in the Dominican
Republic; scholarships and supplies for a
school in Nicaragua; annual
contributions to the Salvation Army,
Crossroads Assisted Living, the St.
Vincent de Paul Society, an Episcopal
seminary and area food banks; and help
fund a homeless ministry. The church
also keeps a fund to respond to special
needs and disasters such as hurricanes,
earthquakes and tsunamis.
Divine Consign's West Miami Avenue
location is open 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday
through Friday and 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
Saturday; call 488-3219. The James
Street location is open 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
Monday through Saturday; call 485-
3366. E-mail st.marksshop@verizon.net.

ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR

Move over, Westmin-
ster Kennel Club. Here
come the cats.
The Gulf to Bay Cat
Club Championship
and Household Pet
Cat Show Feb. 11 drew
about 30 cat fanciers to
the South Venice Civic
Association with their
feline friends. This was
the 10th cat show in Ven-
ice in about three years.
The club is a member
of United Feline Orga-
nization, a 15-year-old
national organization.
Cats of various sizes
and breeds vied for the
title Best of Best, which
would garner the winner
a rosette. Rosettes can be
given through the 10th
best, but were only given
through fifth best in the
Household Pet division
because there were only
five there. Scoring was
done according to UFO
Regional and Inter-Amer-
ican (American Cat Fanci-
ers Association) guidelines.
All five judges scored
every cat. At the end of the
day, the scores were com-
bined and the totals deter-
mined the winners of each
category. After April 30,
the scores for all UFO cat
shows will determine the
Best of the Best cats in
the region and the nation
when other competitions
are finished.
Judging ran from
9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Cats were
evaluated according to
a 100-point standard of
perfection for their breed.
"Each standard is bro-
ken down," said Michele
Strauss, judge and
second vice president of
UFO. There is a stan-
dard for all cat features,
including the eyes, ears,
coat length, pattern of coat
and breed type.
Cat No. 103 was a raga-
muffin cat.
"This is a nice cat,"
Strauss said after initial
profiling for such traits
as thickness of the neck
and its width, chin and
break of the nose. A dip in
the nose is typical of the
breed. Strauss was looking
for how deep it was cut.
"It shouldn't have a
stop," she said.
Cat No. 203 was a red
mackerel tabby. Strauss
said the tabby cat is com-
monly identified with
horizontal stripes and an
"M" mark on its forehead.
Preshow grooming of the
cat is a big deal.
"The cat must be clean
and free of parasites,
and the claws must be
clipped," Strauss said.
Cats must be current
on all inoculations, and
behavior is important. Cats
can be disqualified for bit-
ing or scratching.
"It's rare that a cat
behaves badly," Strauss
said. "We overlook some
behavior because we real-
ize the cats are in a strange
environment and they are
beloved pets. We try to
work with each cat."
While most attendees
were from the Venice
area, there were a few
out-of-towners. A couple
came in during the judg-
ing from Longboat Key.
Pat Brown, a friend to
rescue cats in St. Peters-
burg, brought several
cats to be judged in the
Household Pet category.
Having them judged
helps when it comes
time to find the strays
an adoptive home.
"I've had 524 strays
since the 1990s," she

said. "Five talked their way
into staying with me. Of
those, three passed on and
two remain."
Brown is well-known in
the animal rescue world
for her love of felines. A
few years ago, she was
contacted by a photog-
rapher to have a photo
taken of a stray that got
printed on a grocery
store's brand of cat litter.
She said the cat received
a $50 one-time fee, which
went to his care and feed-
ing, and she was honored
for the referral.
Brown's cat No. 405 was
awarded Best HHP and cat
No. 404 received a fourth
place Best HHP
People pay an entry fee
to have their cat judged.
Strauss said those in the
Household Pet category
only had to pay $25 per
entry when it is usually
$45. As a judge, she can
either take a fee or get two
free entries for her cats
to be judged she has
a Somali and an Oriental
short hair.
"I usually take the two
free entries," she said.
Cat lovers enter their
pets into a contest for vari-
ous reasons.
"As a breeder, there is
pride in one's ability to
select breeding males and
females that have desir-
able traits, according to the
written breed standards,"
said Sandie Zellick, who
performs some PR for UFO.
Some animals grow
up to be pet quality, and
others become show
prospects.
"If a cat is owned but not
bred, there is still a pride
in one's animal and joy in
winning," she said.
There is also the hope
of some monetary gain, as
top cats are sought after
by breeders. And, as in
the case for Brown and
her rescue cats, there is a
better chance of finding a
stray a permanent home
with a certificate that
shows the cat placed in
competition.
Gulf to Bay Cat Club
through UFO holds at
least three shows in Venice
a year. The next one will
be this summer at South
Venice Civic Association.

'The Robbers'


- long on story and talent


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Friedrich Schiller's
"The Robbers" is an 18th
century play that tests the
talent of today's actors
even as it must have
back in the 1780s. A new
adaptation and transla-
tion by Klaus van den
Berg maintains the heavy
Germanic plot lines that
pit one brother against
another in a war for the
love (and inheritance) of
their father, Count von
Moor (Jesse Dornan).
Karl Moore (Chris-
topher Williams) is
the older brother and
favorite son. He becomes
the leader of a gang of
young people out to right
the wrongs of what they
deem a corrupt world


I


and economic injustices.
Franz Moor (Brendan
Ragan) is the classic sec-
ond child trying to outdo
the firstborn but taken
to a cruel extreme. He
would go to any length
to discredit Karl with his
father in order that he
(Franz) would become
the only heir. It is his
early success at discredit-
ing Karl that leads Karl to
his outlaw band.
Karl's life is further
complicated by a gang
member named Spie-
gelberg (Kelly Campbell)
who would be the leader
herself because she feels
Karl is not strong enough
for the task. Think Robin
Hood versus Charles
Manson with Spiegelberg
being the more Manson-
like character.

Not only does the evil
Franz want the money,
the estate and the title,
he would also take Karl's
fiancee, Amalia (Brittany
Proia).
The outlaw band
(which also doubles as
a rock band) consists
of Kelly Campbell as
Spiegelberg, Joseph
McGranaghan as Roller/
Daniel, Jacob Cooper as
Grimm/Herrman, Zak
Wilson as Schweizer,
Lindsay Tornquist as
Razman, Francisco
Rodriguez as Schufterle
and Erin Whitney as
Schwartz. Sarah Brown


portrays the officer,
pastor and Moser. Many
portray characters you
love to hate and others
that you hate to like, let
alone love, yet there is an
endearing quality to Karl,
who seems to have some
innate goodness despite
the rather poor job of
parenting he received
from his father, who
seems more a man to be
pitied rather than to be
revered for his status as a
wealthy count.
The play is a perfect
training vehicle for the

Irishman becomes


an American


STAFF REPORT

Entertainer Ken
McBride recently became
an American citizen, par-
ticipating in the official
ceremony taking place in
Orlando. A U.S. resident
for 35 years, he admitted
to being tired of renewing
his green card every 10
years.
He felt it was time to
become a U.S. citizen
because everyone had
been very good to him,
and he just wanted to


be part of the system.
Continuing to hold his
Irish citizenship, he said,
"I will always be an Irish-
man, because they can
never take that away."
McBride entertains
weekly at T.J. Carney's,
231 W. Venice Ave.,
appearing evenings on
Sunday, Tuesdays and
Wednesday till mid-
April. During St Patrick's
weekend, he will also
entertain in the after-
noons at Pineapples

Discover Northern Ireland's coastal wonderland


ByTOM WILMER
GUEST WRITER

One hundred years ago
Belfast was on a roll.
The robust and vibrant
city touted the world's
largest shipyard along
with dynamic linen and
manufacturing indus-
tries.
Today, elegant Vic-
torian and Edwardian
edifices remain as mute
testimonials to the city's
boom-times.
During the dark days
of the "Troubles," life was
drab in Belfast real es-
tate languished, industry
was stagnant and when
locals partied it was
typically within private
homes.
"When I was a teen-
ager, there were basically
three or four restaurants
in the city and one was a
pizza place," said Rose-
mary, a Belfast-born-
and-bred acquaintance,
"and my dad forbade me
from driving the family
car in to the city in fear it
would get blown up!"
Not anymore.
Belfast today is an
incredibly peaceful,
pulsating place that has
re-established itself as
a prime destination for
visitors from around the
world. Belfast City Center
abounds with cutting-
edge eateries trendset-
ters in the "farm to fork"
movement, serving fresh,
locally sourced foods.
The town's burgeon-
ing nightlife absolutely
rocks.
Bono's group, U2, was
a vanguard for the city's
reputation as a happen-
ing music venue, and
now the world is beating
a path to Belfast's door-
step. International musi-
cal events such as MTV's
award ceremonies,
staged in Belfast this past
November, attract stars
like Lady Gaga and Justin
Bieber. Rihanna and Brit-
ney Spears both began
their recent European
tours in the city by the
River Lagan.

FINE WHINES


I heard the news


By BOB MUDGE
EDITOR

Did something happen
to Whitney Houston? I
heard a rumor but I can't
find anything on the
Internet about it.
That's not true, of
course. In the week
between her death Feb. 11
and her funeral Feb. 18
you would have been
hard pressed to avoid all
the publicity surrounding
her untimely demise and
celebrity-filled service. I
know. I tried.
I mean no disrespect
to Houston, even though
I see her as yet another
phenomenally talented
person who had the
world on a string and
decided to start play-
ing with scissors. She's
certainly not responsible
for all the hoopla that
resulted from her death
anymore than the next
celebrity who dies will be.
No, my target today is
the hoopla specifically,
all the people who cre-
ated it and all the people
who couldn't get enough
of it.
Houston certainly has
a well-deserved place in
American musical his-
tory, both for her singing
career and for her phil-
anthropic work. For that
reason her death, par-
ticularly at 48 and under
strange circumstances,
was newsworthy. It will
also be a story when the
cause is revealed, espe-
cially if it was anything
other than an accident or
a "normal" medical issue.
But as talented and
inspirational as she was,
there was a substantial
period during which her
life and career were a
train wreck. There were


signs she was putting
that behind her, but we'll
never know how high
her star would have risen
again. And even if she
had regained her past
glory, the fact remains
that she was "just" a
singer yes, a sublimely
talented, best-selling,
highly honored singer
but a singer nonetheless.
She didn't cure cancer,
she didn't bring peace to
the Middle East and she
didn't even write her own
hit songs (but neither did
Elvis, for example).
So, to me anyway, to
have radio and TV sta-
tions seem to switch to an
"all Whitney, all the time"
format was just too much.
In fact, I can't name a per-
former singer, actor,
athlete whose death
would justify that amount
of coverage in my mind.
I'm sure her fans would
disagree, but so would the
fans of any other artist.
As someone not emotion-
ally invested in her and
her life, though, it struck
me as a bit twisted when
it passed the point of
getting the only real news
- her death out to the
public.
Immediately there was
speculation about the
cause of death, which
likely won't be known
for weeks. Was it drugs?
Suicide? Murder? And the
mystery justified all the
salacious details of her
drug use and marriage to
and divorce from Bobby
Brown being brought up
again.
Then there was her
funeral, carried live on
many networks and sta-
tions. Did you miss it?
It's all over the Internet,
including a full-length
YouTube video. Her


family allegedly has a
deal to sell the video to
raise money for Houston's
daughter, which kind of
brings things full circle.
In the meantime,
events were happening
in the real world. What?
If you don't know, you
probably don't want to,
but trust me there
were a lot of things more
important in the big
picture than Houston's
death.
So why all the atten-
tion to her? Because it
sold ad space, airtime,
magazines, newspapers.
The National Enquirer
printed a photo purport-
ing to be of her in her
casket, for crying out
loud. But no one sells
what people won't buy
- at least not for long
- and when people are
buying, it's crazy to stop
selling. I didn't buy, but
enough other people did
to keep the stories com-
ing. (Before you accuse
me of jumping on the
bandwagon, I can't very
well criticize something
without talking about
it, and there's nothing
promoting this piece in
the hope of selling some
papers.)
I don't know who will
be the next celebrity to
die too young, I just know
there will be one. And it
will be a sad occasion, as
it always is when some-
one's life is cut short. I
just think we'd be bet-
ter off if by the time it
happens we were all
more interested in our
own lives than in other
people's.
R.I.P., Whitney. You
didn't seem to find much
of it when you were alive.

SUN NEWSPAPERS 7B


Passive resistance


Imagine you won
second place in a short-
story contest. Pretty
cool. But then you read
the judge's thoughts on
why, exactly, your story
fell short: You used the
verb "to be" in place of
"active" sentences a little
too often.
Some writers might
take that as a legitimate
criticism. Others might
find it annoying and
petty. But Caro Rolando
should be outraged. The
reason: Rolando's story, a
submission in a Canada
Writes story contest,
contained not a single
passive. Not one.
Instead, as linguistics
professor and author
Geoffrey Pullum specu-
lated in a blog post at
the Chronicle of Higher
Education's website,
contest judge, Van-
couver fashion and art
writer JJ Lee, is the vic-
tim of some bad infor-
mation about passives
spread by Strunk and
White's "The Elements
of Style."
Contrary to what
readers of Strunk and
White are led to believe,
a passive is not a sen-
tence that uses the verb
"to be" or any of its
conjugated forms like
"is," "were," "was," etc.
Yet this was the verb
that did poor Rolando
in. Her 11-sentence
story contained four
sentences based on the


word "were." The judge
disapproved.
"I believe if Caro had
found another way to
construct one or two
active sentences without
the verb 'to be,' she would
have emerged the win-
ner," Lee wrote.
Pullum suspects that
Strunk and White may
be responsible for this
widespread mispercep-
tion about passives. I'm
inclined to agree.
Under the heading
"Use the active voice,"
their famous little book
gives four examples
of bad sentences with
suggested corrections.
"The reader will naturally
think that the ones on
the left are passives and
the ones on the right are
active transitives," Pul-
lum wrote, "but astonish-
ingly, this is not true in
any of the four pairs."
That's right: None
of Strunk and White's
examples of the passive is
actually passive.
For example, one of
the supposed passives
is the sentence, "There
were a great number of
dead leaves lying on the
ground." Yet, as Pullum
put it in a 2009 article,
this sentence "has no
sign of a passive in it
anywhere."
Here's the simplest
way to understand the
passive voice: It occurs
when the object of
an action is made the
grammatical subject of a
sentence.
Compared "Bob hired
Sue" with "Sue was hired
by Bob." The first one is
active. The person doing
the "action" of hiring is
the grammatical subject.
But in the second one,
the person on the receiv-
ing end of the action,
Sue, is now the gram-
matical subject of the


sentence. That's passive
voice.
The passive is formed
with "to be," usually in a
conjugated form, com-
bined with something
called a passive participle,
which is identical to a
past participle.
Because the passive is
formed with the verb "to
be," many people believe
that any sentence with
"is," "was," "were," etc., is
passive. Not so.
Compare "Joe was
being watched" to "Joe
was being watchful."
They're almost identical,
yet the first one is passive,
the second is not. The
reason: "watched" sug-
gests an action. We don't
know who's perform-
ing this action there's
no "by his mom" or "by
Sam" at the end of this
sentence to identify the
watcher. But we know
who's being watched. It's
Joe.
Compare that with
"watchful," which isn't an
action. It's an adjective.
So our second sentence
is active. Joe is the one
who was being watchful,
which means he's both
the doer of the action
and the subject of the
sentence.
So you can't count on
the verb "to be" to indi-
cate passive voice.
While it's true that
passives can contribute
to bad writing, they're
also an important part
of good writing. So any
knee-jerk dismissal of
passives especially
imagined ones -
amounts to some bad
judgment.

Sharing the

good news -

or maybe not

"Everyone who calls
on the name of the Lord
will be saved." How, then,
can they call on the one
they have not believed in?
And how can they believe
in the one of whom they
have not heard? And how
can they hear without
someone preaching to
them?And how can they
preach unless they are
sent? As it is written,
"How beautiful are the
feet of those who bring
good news!"- Romans
10:13-15
The heart of God looks
like this: God wants all
the people to be saved.
If anyone has taught you
anything different, they
were wrong.
God wants all people
to hear about Jesus and
to make the decision to
call on the name of Jesus
and be saved. God knows
that not everyone who
hears this good news will
call on the name of Jesus
and be saved; nonethe-
less, God still desires for
everyone to be saved.
Having this desire, God
requires a mechanism
to disseminate this good
news. God can share the
good news of Jesus Christ
with the entire world in
any way that God wants.
God could write it in the
sky. God could tweet,
Facebook, text, BBM and
email every single person
on this planet all at the
same time. God could
put the words into the
mouths of every world
leader and command
them to have a press
conference all together
and declare the good
news of Jesus all of
which sound like wonder-
ful ideas, but God has not
chosen any of them.
So, what mechanism
of dissemination has
God chosen to share
the good news of Jesus?
God has chosen you and
me. God has chosen all
of the people who have
already called on the
name of Jesus and have
been saved to go into all

the world and share the
good news of Jesus. We
are God's plan A and
by the way, there is no
plan B.
This shouldn't be very
difficult. After all, we are
sharing good news, we
are sharing peace and we
are sharing salvation. This
is way better news than
that great new restau-
rant we have been telling
everyone about. So, why
do we do such a poor job
at it? Why don't we have
those "beautiful feet" that
share good news?
We can factor in the
worldly excuses of not
wanting to offend or
being politically correct,
but that hasn't stopped
us from being annoying
in other areas of our lives.
So, why don't we share
the good news of Jesus
with everyone we know?
There can only be one
reason, and that reason
isn't very good. We don't
share the good news of
Jesus we don't echo
the heart of God that God
desires everyone to be
saved because we don't


truly believe that God
wants everyone to call on
the name of the Lord and
be saved.

current cholesterol guidelines.
In fact, according to USDA data,
one large egg is 14 percent lower
in cholesterol than previously
recorded, down from 212 mg to
185 mg, and is also 64 percent
higher in vitamin D, with 41 IU per
large egg. Moreover, one large egg
contains six grams of high-quality
protein and 13 essential nutrients
for 70 calories.
"Research shows saturated
fat may be more likely to raise a
person's blood cholesterol than
dietary cholesterol" says Neva
Cochran, registered dietitian,
nutrition writer and researcher
for Woman's World Magazine.
"Eating a balanced breakfast with
high-quality protein foods like
eggs, along with other nutrient-
rich foods like fruit and whole


grains, is the best way to start
the day. Unlike sugary foods,
eggs have no simple sugars
and contain no carbs, providing
steady and sustained energy."
Additionally, the 2010 Dietary
Guidelines for Americans rec-
ognize eggs as a nutrient dense
food and state that the consump-
tion of one egg per day is not
associated with risk of coronary
heart disease or stroke in healthy
adults. And, eggs provide high-
quality protein that helps build
muscles and increases satiety for
all-day energy, which can help
maintain a healthy weight, an
important factor in promoting
overall health.
Incredible egg benefits
Cochran also points out that at


an average of 15 cents a piece, eggs
are an affordable, versatile, nutrient
powerhouse that contribute to a
healthy diet in many ways:
Breakfast boosters: Research
shows that eating high-quality
protein foods for breakfast, like
eggs, can help increase satiety,
maintain long-lasting energy
and improve cognitive skills like
memory recall time.
Sunshine supplement: Eggs
are one of the few foods that
are a naturally good source of
vitamin D, meaning that one egg
provides at least 10 percent of the
recommended daily allowance.
Vitamin D plays an important role
in calcium absorption, helping to
form and maintain strong bones.

SWeight-loss companion:
Research shows that eating
eggs for breakfast can help
overweight dieters lose more
weight, lower their body mass
index and shrink their waist
more than eating a bagel of
equal calories for breakfast.

Eggs are easy
Adding eggs to your break-
fast routine can be easy,
even on busy weekday morn-
ings. Whether you're craving
scrambled eggs, an omelet or an
egg sandwich, microwaves can
be an incredible time-saving
tool, so you can start every day
with a nutritious breakfast. Try
this quick and easy recipe next
time you're in a rush:


Egg and Cheese
Breakfast Burrito
Ingredients:
1 flour tortilla (6-inch)
1 egg
1 tablespoon shredded Mexican
cheese blend
1 tablespoon salsa
Directions:
1. Line 2-cup microwave-safe
cereal bowl with microwave-safe
paper towel. Press tortilla into bowl.
Break egg into center of tortilla.
Beat egg gently with a fork until
blended, being careful not to tear
tortilla.
2. Microwave on high 30 seconds;
stir. Microwave until egg is almost
set, 15 to 30 seconds longer.
3. Remove tortilla with paper
towel liner from bowl to flat surface.
Top egg with cheese and salsa. Fold
bottom of tortilla over egg, then fold
in sides.

We're told that drinking water
is good for our health. But do
we really know why? To get the
new year off to a healthy start,
here are four reasons why staying
hydrated can help you reach your
health and lifestyle goals.
Good hydration is as
important as good nutrition
Did you know that about
30 percent of your water intake
comes from food? Most diets limit
your caloric intake, so remember
to drink plenty of water when you
are trying to lose weight.
Fitness experts have long
known the benefits of water and
strongly encourage their clients
to drink up."I recommend my
clients always carry water with
them,"says"The Biggest Loser"

trainer Dolvett Quince."It keeps
you hydrated and helps flush your
body of excess waste."
Stay hydrated and feel alert
According to Nutrition Today,
dehydration impairs cognitive
function and mood in most adults
at some point throughout their
weekly activities. If your goal this
year is to tackle those lingering
chores around the house, drinking
more water can help you feel
more energized.
Swap out sugar
Substituting water for soft
drinks is a simple way to cut back
on your calories. There are ap-
proximately 10 packets of sugar in
a 12-ounce can of soda drinking
water instead of sugary drinks
could reduce your caloric intake
and help you maintain a


I I 1
: 50 Ta ia I i N ( N t re i


New Year's resolution


healthy weight.
Flavor matters
When water tastes better, you
drink more of it. Reusable bottles
with built-in filters like the Brita
Bottle filtration system makes
tap water taste better and allows
you to conveniently hydrate on
the go.
Looking for inspiration on your
journey toward better hydration?
Try joining a program like the
Brita Challenge, which encourag-
es you to drink eight to 10 glasses
of water per day, including one
before each meal, for four weeks.
Participants can also access in-
teractive tools, tips and tricks for
drinking more water from NBC's
"The Biggest Loser"trainers.
"My experience with the Brita
Challenge has been amazing,"


said "The Biggest Loser" Season
5 Contestant Bernie Salazar. "By
drinking more water, I've been
able to curb my appetite, help
clear up my complexion and I feel
more balanced inside and out."
From cutting calories to feeling
more alert, simply increas-
ing your water intake can help
set you on the right course for
healthy living in the new year.

Creative ways to preserve family recipes and traditions


BY ARA
Whether families are around the corner
or across the country, special memories
and cherished traditions bring them
together. From cooking favorite dishes to
re-telling classic family stories, it's impor-
tant to keep those traditions alive.
Everyone has a favorite recipe they
look forward to enjoying at family gath-
erings. The smell and taste of a special
dish can evoke memories from the past
or create new ones for younger genera-
tions. To preserve your family's special
recipes and traditions for generations to
come, consider these easy and fun ideas:
Create a family cookbook
A cookbook full of special family
recipes is a wonderful keepsake, and
creating your own has never been easier,
with a variety of affordable printing
and scrapbooking tools available. Ask
each family member to share a favorite
recipe for inclusion. Make the book more
personal by having each person write
a memory that is tied to the recipe or


include favorite family photos. You can
also capture step-by-step photos of the
recipe preparation and finished product,
so the next time that you or a distant
relative cook the dish, the recipe will
yield the perfect result.

Declare official "just
for the holidays" recipes
Make your grandmother's famous apple
pie the official dessert for Thanksgiving, or
cook your dad's special banana pancakes
every Christmas Eve morning. Tying recipes
to a specific holiday helps build traditions
and excitement so family members can look
forward to enjoying their favorite dishes.
Host a family cooking party
What better way to preserve family
meals than to plan a family cooking
party? Gather the entire family and
work together to prepare several special
dishes. Assign each family member a
role to ensure that everyone is involved.
Not only will you be working together,


but everyone will learn to prepare the
recipe themselves.
Make inherited
recipes your own
Adding your own twist to a family
favorite can keep recipes alive for future
generations. Modernizing a passed-down


PHOTO PROVIDED BY ARA
dish can also make it more accessible and
convenient. Try updating your grand-
father's legendary strudel with apple
butter you can buy at the store instead
of homemade or grill something that is
traditionally prepared in the oven.
There's truly something exceptional
about celebrating a cherished family
recipe.

How to snack smart in 2012


SDish

on the Dish

Lobster Lasagna
by Dean Donnelly

My secret to great food is something
that chefs have known for centuries,
but some major restaurant chains have
lost sight of: Make everything from
scratch that you possibly can. This way
you keep the flavor of the individual
ingredients without the addition of
chemicals and preservatives.

For example for my LOBSTER
LASAGNA I begin with chunks of
lobster and sea scallops baked with
garlic, spices and Romano, parmesan,
mozzarella and ricotta cheeses. I then
add my slow cooked homemade vodka
cream sauce which consists of
marinara, vodka, heavy cream and
crushed red pepper.

I pride myself on being a hands on
OWNER and CHEF and being
interactive table to table with each
customer learning more about the
culinary desires and wishes of my
customers.

Snacks they can either be
your worst dieting enemy or your
new weight-loss best friend. The
difference is all in the choices
you make. This year, make it
your resolution to learn how to
snack smarter. To help, here are
some tips to develop a healthier
relationship with snacking.

Portion control
Hand someone a bag of
chips and ask them to eat just
100 calories. Sounds impos-
sible, right? Well for most
people, it is. Not only is it hard
to calculate quickly, our will-
power alone will fail us. Soon a
few chips become half the bag
and the guilt sets in.
Don't even give yourself the
opportunity to overeat and
instead think portion control.
Replace full size snack bags with
100-calorie snack packs. They
are the perfect way to know
you're only eating 100 calories
and resist the urge to eat more.
Snyder's of Hanover offers a va-
riety of 100-calorie Pretzel snack
packs. Available in mini, snap or
pretzel sticks, they're sold in the
snack aisle of local grocery store.
They are quick and easy and
perfect for kids or adults. Plus
the best part is, once the snack
pack is gone, you're done.

Smart snacks
Making smart snack choices
doesn't mean you have to give
up flavor or your favorite foods.
There are a number of products
that are low in fat, and can help
satisfy your cravings. Here are
some ideas to get you started:


1. Raisins One ounce
equals 85 calories. You could
even cover them with chocolate.
Chocolate can be healthy when
consumed in small portions.
2. Graham crackers Eight
small rectangles is equal to 100
calories.
3. Celery with peanut butter
- Five pieces of celery with 1
tablespoon peanut butter is equal
to 100 calories. This is a very sat-
isfying snack packed with protein
and is also gluten-free.
4. Dried fruits and nuts A
small amount of dried fruits
with a small amount of nuts is
a snack kids love to eat.
5. Pretzels One ounce
equals 100 calories. You can
even include cheese with your
pretzels for something different
with added protein.
6. Unsweetened applesauce
- one cup is equivalent to
100 calories, and is a great


PHOTO PROVIDED BY ARA
snack idea for younger children.
7. Air-popped popcorn -
Three cups or 1 ounce equals
95 calories. Popcorn is also
gluten-free.
8. Fruit all types of fruit
are full of valuable nutrients and
they also contain no gluten.
9. Baked corn tortillas with
dip Corn tortillas are a great
alternative to potato chips. You
can eat them with salsa and/or
guacamole for a healthy treat.
10. Rice cakes Rice
cakes by themselves aren't
really nutritious, but they are
gluten-free. Try topping them
with cottage cheese and fruit,
peanut butter with banana
slices, or cheese and tomatoes
for a more nutritious snack.
11. Fat-free sugar-free pud-
ding one serving contains
approximately 80 calories.
Another treat kids really enjoy.

12. Lettuce wraps fill a big
lettuce leaf with tuna, hummus
and your favorite vegetables
and roll it up. You could even use
a ham slice with hummus and
vegetables for a change in variety.
This is also a gluten-free snack.

Make it simple
Put healthy snacks out so they're
easy to grab. Take a bowl and make
sure it's filled with fresh fruit. For cold
snacks create a healthy snack drawer
in your refrigerator. Stock it full of baby
carrots cut up veggies and low fat dip
or puddings. To give your kids incen-
tive to make healthier choices, give
them permission to take any snack
from these locations without asking.

Read up
When you're in the store, read
the label and look for low fat,


whole grain or organic options
when possible. You'd be surprised
to see a lot of snacks you might
have overlooked before. Even
pretzels, like Snyder's of Hanover
Organic Whole Wheat Pretzel Nib-
blers, are made with whole grains
and are low in fat.

Set small goals
Creating a healthy lifestyle
doesn't just happen overnight but
the process shouldn't be over-
whelming either. Setting small
goals, like snacking on vegetables
for a week, can develop into long
term eating habits. And it's best
to set goals that are obtainable so
you see your success early on and
you're motivated to continue.
Healthy snacking is all about
making the right choices. This
coming year, it's up to you to
make the right decisions, hope-
fully these tips will help motivate
you to a more wholesome and
healthier 2012.

More Americans look to food for everyday wellness


BY ARA
It was about 60 years ago
that processed foods and fast-
food outlets started to become
mainstays of the American
lifestyle. The fast-food culture
that developed tended to view
eating as an inconvenience,
providing basic fuel for the day
and not much else.
More than half a century
later, many Americans are more
particular about the foods they
choose for themselves and their
families. In fact, people are
seeking out the added health
benefits that can be provided
by functional or "super"foods.
According to the 2011 IFIC
Functional Foods Survey, as
many as 90 percent of Ameri-
cans can match at least one
food with its associated health
benefit. Popular functional
foods like fruits and vegetables,
fish and fish oil, whole grains,
tea and green tea were among
the foods Americans look to the
most to maintain or improve
their health.
This apparent increase in the
awareness of good nutrition
bodes well for the future,
and may partly explain the
recent uptick in discussions
about health-related concerns.
However, while knowledge of
functional foods is increasing,
health care costs and astro-
nomical obesity rates seem to
demonstrate that knowledge
doesn't always reflect action.
"The good news is that nu-
trition education is working to
raise awareness of the health
benefits of nature's ingredi-
ents, but the ongoing
challenge is to translate


awareness into behavior
modification," said registered
dietician Ashley Koff, whose
nonprofit tool, "Ashley Koff
Approved," helps people
identify products that meet a
high standard of nutrition and
marketing integrity.
"A major impediment to
making change continues to
be the perception that it will
require an expensive and com-
plicated total diet overhaul.
I strive to communicate that
dietary improvements are very
simple, affordable and enjoy-
able. For example, add a cup
of tea to your day all you
need is water and a tea bag."
Koff's easy-to-follow tips for
improving wellness through
dietary habits include:
SMinimize the added
sugar: Many products that you
may not expect like tomato
sauce and breads have added
sugars, so make sure to check
the label before you make a
purchase.
SStart your day off right:
Eat a complete, well-balanced
breakfast and try adding a cup
of tea white, green, black,
oolong or herbal for antioxi-
dants (nature's clean-up crew)
and other health benefits.
Celestial Seasonings offers a
variety of green teas and well-
ness teas that are delicious,
natural and healthy.
SFocus on a balanced diet:
The best bet for optimal
energy is a nutrition plan
comprised of four pillars:
quantity, quality, frequency
and balance.
SThink evolution, not
revolution: It will seem less


stressful to think about
making exchanges rather
than omissions to your diet
(and stress reduction puts
another check on your health
report). You get the biggest
health benefits by improving
the quality of the items you
consume most frequently,
so focus on upgrading your
daily staples. For instance,
select items that do not use
potentially harmful pesticides,
choose to eat raw, whole
(versus processed) vegetables,
drink water with lemon or eat
a piece of fruit instead and
limit fruit juices.
Incorporate color: Count


the colors you consume and
challenge yourself to see how
many colors you can include
in a single meal. Of course,
it's important to remember
that the good colors are those
found naturally in fruits and
vegetables.
It's safe to say that Americans
will occasionally indulge in nu-
trient poor meals this year. But
perhaps we'll be enjoying more
healthy foods, too, as many of us
strive to achieve a more optimal
wellness level.

Father, son love their Model A Fords


The title says it all, as
you'll find reading
about the Bagwell
family- snowbirds from
Fletcher, N.C., who winter
annually at their water-
front Punta Gorda home.
Buddy, 70, and his
wife of 53 years, Willyse,
grew up with Model As
as part-time transporta-
tion, which was typical for
country folks in Hender-
son County. Both are re-
tired and enjoy a comfort-
able life with old Fords,
now hobby cars used for
fun, parades, auto shows,
and visits to nursing and
assisted-living facilities.
Some background
about this always happy
twosome: They were
classmates in grammar
school that turned into
being sweethearts, then
early marriage. Buddy
Wayne Bagwell was raised
on a 100-acre family farm,
learning to drive tractors
at age 10. By 12, he was
operating cars, Model As
of course, as well as the
farm truck. He officially
courted Miss Willyse
Barnwell in the farm
truck followed by a 1947
Ford two-door sedan. His
father, in addition to be-
ing a farmer, was also an
independent trucker and
allowed Buddy to some-
times ride along. That
occupation was eventually
passed on but not until
young Mr. Buddy was sent
off to North Carolina State
College in Raleigh.
The formal education
couldn't stop Buddy's
urge to be a professional
trucker, with the result be-
ing a union driver having
3 million miles without
any accidents charged to
him behind the wheel of
18-wheelers over 30 years
and winning 10 safety
awards from national
companies. I'd say that's
quite an accomplishment!
After having been mar-
ried for a few years, this
couple parented two chil-
dren, both boys, Kenny
and Scott. They cut their
teeth on driving, starting
with Model A Fords also.
Sadly, Kenny was killed in
an auto accident not
his fault in St. Augus-
tine in 1981.
While Buddy was on the
road hauling "in at least 40
states and Canada," Wil-
lyse became a homemak-
er perfecting her southern
cooking and sewing skills
plus raising the sons. She
was later employed by a
very "high-end" bicycle
manufacturer for 20 years.
They have owned and
rebuilt many Model A
Fords during their mar-
riage, including a neat lit-
tle pickup actually owned
and driven by "the mis-
sus," as Buddy says. The
farm is theirs now, only no
longer 100 acres. A large
brick house with a 30- by
40-foot garage under it
serves as their spring-to-
autumn residence. There
is a separate 4,700-square-
foot workshop garage for


.- Don and Lee
.l M i, Royston
old and modern tractor
storage. It has AC and
heat to make working "out
there" comfortable restor-
ing for himself everything
from antique gas engines,
farm equipment, Model
As and currently a 1951
Ford Victoria hardtop
coupe. I almost forgot the
big vegetable garden that
yields so muchWillyse
cans or freezes enough to
bring south each fall.
In addition to being
homebodiess" as Buddy
says, they are active in
church while in North Car-
olina and are "God-fearing
Christians." From what Lee
and I have seen and heard,
that description seems to
fit them very well.

Scott's Ford
The square-looking
1930 Model A Tudor Ford
sedan belongs to Scott
Bagwell, 46, who left
home in North Carolina in
2004 and is now an official
Florida resident.
As a boy, he hung
around his father and
granddad, always tinkering
with mechanical things,
and at age 13 started driv-
ing an old 1947 Willys Jeep.
Soon Scott moved up to
handling a big 10-wheel
truck carrying apples they
raised. There was no sit-
ting around as it seemed
all the farm's machinery
constantly needed to be
maintained, with these
jobs assigned to him by his
elders.
Each day was a learn-
ing experience, either in
school or on the farm,
that would serve him well
enough to be hired by the
county and state govern-
ments in landscaping
and waste management
during the day then come
home to "play" with old
trucks and tractors. His
personal transporta-
tion was a Ford F-100
pickup and, as he told me,
"pickups are his thing."
That includes a Model A
Roadster pickup currently
in the making.
Back in North Carolina,
this fellow has a 1985 El
Camino that truly looks
new. It ought to, after
years of effort and money
invested. For now at least,
that's where it will stay
until more garaging can
be arranged locally here in
the Sunshine State.
The "working man's
car" that Scott uses in the
hobby around Charlotte
County is a "smooth
runner" and may not be
as fancy as his parents'
roadster, but it is much
larger inside, a necessity
for his frame.
He also owns a 1950

Consumer Reports to study connected-vehicle technology


By JERRY HIRSCH
Los ANGELES TIMES

LOS ANGELES Consumer
Reports has sent its editors to
Silicon Valley and to a special
Ford proving ground in Dear-
born, Mich., to look at how
cars might talk to one another
in transit and improve safety.
Connected-vehicle tech-
nology is gaining currency in


the auto industry and among
safety analysts. The magazine
likes what it sees in this new
technology, which enables
vehicles to talk to one another
and to road infrastructure such
as traffic lights.
Such an advance is seen as
having great potential in dan-
gerous scenarios, such as a car
approaching an intersection
with a green traffic light ahead


just as a car on the cross street
is about to run a red light.
"In a typical car, you would
enter the intersection and
most likely be slammed in
the side by the other vehicle,
which could seriously injure
or even kill you. But in this
car, a prominent red warning
light flashes on the dash and
an alarm blares, giving you
time to hit the brakes before


entering the danger zone,"
Consumer Reports said. It
plans to feature the technology
in its annual auto issue, to be
published Feb. 28.
The magazine says that
implementing V2X, or con-
nected-vehicle, technology on
a mass scale is years away. It
must also overcome concerns
about privacy and cyber-
security, but even so, it's likely


to be adopted, and that should
improve road safety.
"These systems are be-
ing aggressively developed
because they could be the next
big safety breakthrough," said
Rik Paul, Consumer Reports'
automotive editor. "But ad-
equate oversight of how the
information is used is essential
to ensure the privacy of drivers
and to prevent abuse."


Tiny bauble: Mini Cooper S coupe is tiny, price isn't


By MARK PHELAN
DETROIT FREE PRESS
The 2012 Mini Cooper S
coupe is a tiny vehicle de-
signed for the tiny group of
people for whom the Mini
Cooper was not already
small, impractical and
expensive enough.
This British budget-
buster does bring some
goodies to the table:
charming looks and tele-
pathically responsive han-
dling. Not enough to justify
prices that can approach
$40,000, though.
The Mini Cooper coupe
is the two-seat derivative
of the Mini hatchback. It
looks very small, but it's a
hair longer than the more
practical Mini hatchback.
(You might count the
times you hear the Mini
called practical. It won't
happen often.)
The coupe's 97.1-inch
wheelbase matches the
hatchback. The roof is
just 0.9 inches lower than
the hatchback. Its body
encloses the driver and
passenger like shrink
wrap. The hatchback feels
spacious by comparison.
(You won't hear that often,
either.)
The coupe is slightly
heavier than the Mini
Cooper hatchback but
also 0.1 seconds quicker to


60 mph, according to the
manufacturer's figures.
Prices for the two-seat
Mini Cooper coupe start at
$21,300 for a base model
with a 121-horsepower
1.6-liter four-cylinder en-
gine and six-speed manual
transmission.
A six-speed automatic
raises the price to $22,550.
The S model features a
177-horsepower turbo-
charged, direct-injection
version of the same engine
and goes for $24,600 with
the manual and $25,850
with the automatic.
The Works model
ratchets the turbo's power
up to 192 horsepower and
comes with a six-speed
manual and $31,200 price.
I tested a very well-
equipped Mini Cooper S
coupe with the manual
transmission and a $32,450
price tag.
The Mini Cooper coupe
has few direct competitors.
Several small, sporty cars
offer alternatives: The tur-
bocharged Chevrolet Sonic
hatchback, Ford Fiesta
SES, HyundaiVeloster and
upcomingVeloster turbo,
Scion tC and Volkswagen
GTI. Those cars cost less
than the coupe I tested,
though they may not
match all its features.
The Mini coupe's

COOPER S COUPE:
Front-wheel drive two-
passenger two-door subcompact
Base price: $24,600
Price as tested: $32,450
(excluding destination charge)
SRating: Two out of four stars
Reasons to buy: Handling,
looks
Shortcomings: Poor visibility,
price, interior storage

passenger compartment
provides plenty of head
and legroom, but not
enough storage space for
sunglasses, phones, CDs
and other gear.
The big, central instru-
ment display is marvel-
ously readable, with speed
around the outside and
a large central space for
navigation and other
information.
A little joystick mounted
behind the shifter controls
phones, audio and naviga-
tion. It's an interesting vari-
ation on the iDrive rotary
controller Mini's corporate
parent BMW uses.
Though intuitive and
easy to use, the joystick is
so small that it's hard to
operate in a moving ve-
hicle. The cupholders are
small and poorly placed.
The 9.8-cubic-foot trunk
is useful and has a small

pass-through. Don't be
fooled into thinking the
Mini coupe will work for
ski weekends, though.
Mini's own promotional
photos show the pass-
through being used to
create enough room for a
guitar and a banjo.
The trunk lid is heavy
and hard to open.
The coupe is quick, easy
and delightful to drive. The
tires grip curves as if they
had claws. The electric
power steering is fast and
precise, with good on-
center feel. The car is quiet
at highway speeds.
There's some torque

with 177 pound-feet of
torque available from 1,600
to 4,500 rpm. An overboost
feature briefly boosts peak
torque to 192 pound-feet.
The six-speed manual
transmission has short,
fast throws and a slick,


easy mechanism. A small
spoiler pops up out of
the trunk lid at speeds
over 50 mph. The S coupe
accelerates to 60 mph. in
6.5 seconds, 0.1 second
faster than the S model of
the Mini hatchback.


Run-flat tires best option when tires keep getting punctured


Dear Tom and Ray:
Between yesterday
afternoon and this
morning, I have had
three flat tires. The tire
that was flat yesterday
had a screw in it, and
the tires that are flat this
morning have finish-
ing nails. Other than the
obvious question of "Was
this sabotage?" I have a
question about repairing
the tires. My question is,
Are plugs reliable, or are
patches or tire replace-
ment recommended? I
will add that I am living
in Costa Rica, and tire
puncturing is a known
technique for robbing
foreigners. Thus the idea
of replacing tires only
to have them repunc-
tured is not appealing.
But even less appealing
is having to stop along
a highway (they do not
have shoulders) and be-
ing held up by the people
who put the nails in the
tire. Bill
TOM: Well, my first
thought was that you
oon


CLICK and CLACK

TALK CARS
by Tom& Ray Magliozzi


Because anyone who owns a car
needs a laugh twice a week.
need run-flat tires. But I'm
not sure that technology
is widely available where
you live. Run-flats require
special equipment to
mount them, plus they're
expensive, require tire-
pressure monitors and
may not be as repairable
as standard tires.
RAY: So, on second
thought, you need a
55-gallon drum of pep-
per spray mounted on
the roof.
TOM: Actually, plugs
have been used since


the days of the Roman
chariots. OK, not that
long, but they're well-
established and effective.
As long as the hole in the
tire is not too big (and
screw or nail holes are
not too big), you can in-
sert a plug and expect it
to last for the remaining
life of the tire which
in your case sounds like
about six hours.
RAY: But even better,
a plug is something you
can do yourself, Bill. You
can go to any auto-parts
store (try Manny, Mo and
Carlos in Costa Rica), and
buy yourself a plug kit.
TOM: It consists of a
bunch of plugs, a reamer,
which you use to make
the hole the exact size of
the plug, and a tool for
inserting the plugs.
RAY: So you create the
hole, then thread the plug
into the insertion tool,
and then you insert it
and remove the tool. And
voila! The repair is done
and you're on your way.
TOM: So then what


you need is a cylinder of
compressed air that you
can carry around in your
trunk. Once you plug
your tire, you can rein-
flate it by the side of the
road, hand your wallet to
the nice banditos who've
been waiting patiently
for you to fix the tire, and
be on your way. Good
luck, Bill.

Leaky strut isn't
an emergency,
but it's not good
Dear Tom and Ray:
We have a 2009 Toyota
Camry. When our local
mechanic was check-
ing the brakes, he noted
that the left rear strut
was leaking fluid. He
informed us of the issue,
and since the car was
still under warranty, I
took it to the dealer. The
dealer noted that it is
normal for Camry struts
to leak, and that unless
it is gushing fluid, there
is no issue. I then spoke
with our mechanic, and


he was very clear that
struts are sealed, and
that any leakage of fluid
is very bad. What is your
opinion? Todd
RAY: Your mechanic is
right. Struts are sealed,
and the good ones never
leak.
TOM: On the other
hand, a small leak in
a strut is not a sign of
impending disaster. It's
just disappointing. And
it's a sign that the strut is
going to get worse over
time.
RAY: Right. It's like
having a new car that
burns oil, and having the
dealer say, "That's nor-
mal." Well, it might be
normal, but it shouldn't
be normal, so it frosts
your shorts.
TOM: So, since the car
is still under warranty, I
think you should go back
to the Toyota dealer. Tell
him that you're disap-
pointed. Explain that
another mechanic you
trust told you the strut
is beginning to fail and


really should be re-
placed. And ask him to
replace it for you under
warranty, in the interests
of making you a happy
customer.
RAY: When that doesn't
work, try crying, Todd.
TOM: He may argue
that the shock still func-
tions correctly, which
probably is true. And
that it's not an immedi-
ate safety issue even if
you ignore it, you won't
have a disastrous or
dangerous event while
you're driving; you'll
just need to replace it at
some point.
RAY: But since we
know it's starting to fail
now, and the car is rela-
tively new, why shouldn't
Toyota take responsibili-
ty and fix it for you? Give
it another shot, Todd.
Push a little harder, and
see if you can get him
to help you out. Remind
him that Toyota doesn't
need any more hits to its
reputation for quality at
the moment.

PROFESSIONALS TEAM UP WITH
NEW BROKERAGE
Scott Coulombe
scoulombe@sun-herald.com Real estate professionals Steve Gant, Andy Richardson and John McQueen have
941-429-3118 created a new real estate brokerage that has merged with prominent broker Don
Gant and Gant Realty, Inc. The newly formed company is called Riverside Professional Services, LLC
and is located on Kings Highway in Lake Suzy at 12653 SW County Road 769, Suite A. Don Gant has
been in real estate in Charlotte County since 1972 and Gant Realty, Inc.. was established in 1998. Don's
success has had a profound impact on the commercial real estate market here over the past 40 years.
Steve, Andy and John currently own Riverside Appraisal Services, Inc., a real estate appraisal firm that
covers all of Southwest Florida. Along with partner Jeff Fehr, who brings nearly 40 years of real estate
appraisal experience to the group, it is the only local appraisal firm consisting of four designated
members of the Appraisal Institute with three MAI appraisers and an SRA appraiser. The addition of the
brokerage business brings diversification to Riverside's business model, and the new company brings
together an unmatched level of real estate expertise and knowledge of the local area, especially in the
commercial, industrial, retail, agricultural and land markets. Creation of the new brokerage business is
considered by the group to result in a strengthening of both businesses and creates a lot of synergy which
will benefit clients of both companies. Riverside Professional Services, LLC can be reached at (941) 613-
6616 and Riverside Appraisal Services, Inc. can be reached at (941) 743-2999.

SU N^ NEWSPAPER


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I'm a point guard on my
high-school's basketball
team. There's a good
chance that we will make it
to the playoffs.
My left knee, right in
front of the kneecap, has
started to hurt when I walk
up and down stairs. The
pain isn't great, and I might
be making too much out
of this. I don't want to miss
the playoffs.
What do you think I
have, and what can I do to
stop it from getting worse?
- B.J.
ANSWER: The knee is a
vulnerable joint, and the
number of possible knee
injuries is enormous. The
best I can do for you is
give you a guess and some
general advice. If the knee
pain worsens, or if it's not
gone in one more week,
see the family doctor.
Pain on the front of
the kneecap often indi-
cates patellofemoral pain
syndrome. Climbing and
descending stairs intensi-
fies the pain. The patella
is the kneecap. It's em-
bedded in a large tendon
that comes from the front
thigh muscles. The tendon
inserts on the lower leg
bone. "Femoral" refers to
the thigh bone, the femur.
It has a groove for the
kneecap. When you bend
the knee, the kneecap can
partially come out of its
groove and cause pain.
Pain also arises if you sit
for a long time and then
arise. This is patellofemo-
ral pain syndrome.
Flat feet are said to favor
this condition. I don't
know if that's true. Other
anatomical abnormalities
also make the kneecap
partially pop out of the
femoral groove.
If you have no pain
when you play basketball,
then you can keep playing.
It's not likely to keep you
out of the playoffs.
In the meantime, apply
heat or ice, whichever
gives you greater relief, to
the knee for 15 minutes
a couple of times dur-
ing the day. Nonsteroidal
anti-inflammatory drugs
like Aleve or Advil are safe
to use for pain. If you can
get by without medicine,
do so. A knee brace could
prevent further injury to
the joint.

ents a safe way to begin an

DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
At age 84, I have taken up
roller skating. I love it. The
trouble is I'm not all that
well-balanced physical-
ly I mean. Got any exercise
I can do? Keep it simple.
- R.B.
ANSWER: A simple bal-
ance exercise is to stand in
a doorway. The doorway
makes it convenient for
you to steady yourself if
you're about to topple.
Raise one foot off the floor
and move it back and forth
like a pendulum. Then
switch feet. Do as many
repetitions as you can,
and repeat the exercise as
many times during the day
as is convenient.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I
am only 27, but I get pretty
short-winded after about
10 minutes of running. I've
been told not to breathe
through my mouth. I won-
der if those Band Aid-like
strips that are put on the
nose would help me. The
claim is they let more air
enter. Do you think they'll
help? C.D.
ANSWER: I see the ads
for those strips all the time
on TV. I've never tried
them, so I don't know for
sure if they'd work for
you. But they can't be that
expensive. Why not experi-
ment? Let me know the
results.
Everyone who runs any
distance breathes through
the mouth. It's a much
larger opening than are the
nostrils. Mouth breath-
ing doesn't warm the air
as much as nose breath-
ing does. It might dry the
mouth. Those are the only
two reasons I can see for
not using the mouth for
additional air.
Neither of those reasons
is much of an argument not
to mouth-breathe when
running long distances.
Dr Donohue regrets that
he is unable to answer in-
dividual letters, but he will
incorporate them in his
column whenever possible.
Readers may write him or
request an order form of
available health newslet-
ters at PO. Box 536475,

Soup up your canned soup
Dear Readers: It's win-
ter, and what better way-
to warm up on a cold day K


than to have a hot bowl of
soup? If you're too busy to
make a big pot of home-
made soup, I have a few
hints for making canned
soup more appetizing. Try
these:
Try adding grated
cheese, chopped hard-
boiled eggs or a few
croutons to thick soups
for extra flavor.
To jazz up cream
soups, add a dollop of
sour cream, yogurt or
chopped herbs.
For clear soups, add
dumplings, won tons,
rice or noodles to give the
soup a little more sub-
stance.
For chili or bean
soups, add slices of
avocado or some grated
cheese, and top with a
little sour cream. If you'd
like to try new soup
recipes, I have several in
my Heloise's Spectacu-
lar Soups pamphlet. To
receive one, send $5 and
a long, self-addressed,
stamped (65 cents) enve-
lope to: Heloise/Soup, P.O.
Box 795001, San Antonio,
TX 78279-5001. FYI: If
your soup is too hot, toss
in an ice cube, or better
yet, some frozen veggies!

suggested that it might

Fortunately, my hon-

that it might simply be
because my key was worn

ARIES (March 21-April 19).You're an agreeable
person, but that doesn't mean you're going to say
yes to everything. In fact, you're likely to say no at
least three times and be better off for it.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Sleuthing will be
necessary in your professional life even if you don't
work forthe police.You'll do well in a situation that
requires cunning and secrecy.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21).The hardiest seed in
the world still requires particular circumstances in


needs.There's nothing wimpy about knowing what
they are and getting them met.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Today's conflict may be
subtle and, therefore, insignificant to those around
you, but it means something to you.Your shrewd
strategy makes you a formidable opponent.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).Your best financial luck oc-
