Warriors reunite after 40 years


By DON MOORE
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Forty years after rockets
rained down on their Tango
Boat in South Vietnam's Cau
Lon River delta country, kill-
ing or wounding seven crew
members, Soan Ngo, skipper
of the beleaguered boat, and
Jim Milstead, his American
adviser, were recently reunited
thanks to the efforts of a
friend and the Internet.
It was 5 a.m. Jan. 4, 1971,
and their unit, River Division
41, Tango Boat-1277, was
making an enemy sweep. They
were part of a dozen-boat
convoy in the Nam Can delta
area when 11 rockets struck
their armored personnel
carrier watercraft.
Ngo, the 20-year-old South
Vietnamese captain, was in
the wheelhouse high above
the deck steering the boat
and Milstead, who was also
20, was on deck near the
boat's radio when disaster
struck.
Their 73-foot armored
personnel carrier was a
steel tank-like vessel with
a heliport on its stern. The
craft was equipped with an
arsenal of high-powered,
fast-firing weapons .30-
and .50-caliber machine
guns, MK-19 rapid-fire gre-
nade launchers and 20 mm
cannons. These boats were
used to transport the River-
ine Infantry throughout the
delta, interdict enemy guns
and food transported by
civilian river boats and go on
search-and-destroy missions.
The U.S. Navy was in the
process of turning over all the
boats in River Division 41,
including Tango-1277, to the
South Vietnamese Navy. The
American crew was replaced
byVietnamese sailors except
for one American adviser,
Milstead. Ngo, petty officer
2nd class, became skipper of
the boat. Milstead, the boat's
original skipper, who also held
a 2nd class petty officer's rat-
ing, became the craft's radio
operator.
"Jim and I got along with
a little broken English and a
lot of hand signals. Jim was
very patient with my poor
English," Ngo, now a 62-year-
old Venice steakhouse owner,
recalled with a smile. "During
the summer and into the fall

weekend to see Jim's South Vietnamese buddy Soan Ngo and his wife, Hanh.


and winter of 1970 the two
of us went on river patrols
together."
"In early January 1971 we
went on a 12-boat operation
down the Cau Lon River. Our
boat had two Navy SEALs
aboard with explosive packs
that night. Right before sunup,
about 5:30 a.m., I distinctly
remember two terrible
'boom, booms!' rockets
hit our boat," Milstead, also
62, recalled as he told his
story while sitting in Soan's
restaurant.
"Out of the 10 on our boat
that night, only one of the
UDT (underwater demolition
team) guys wasn't killed or
wounded. I sustained super-
ficial shrapnel injuries to my
head and leg that looked a lot

All of these South Vietnamese sailors and their American adviser, Jim
Milstead, were killed or wounded in a Vietcong rocket attack in 1971 on a
Tango boat in the Cau Lon River. Milstead, pictured in the dark fatigues,
and Soan Ngo, behind him in the white shirt, were recently reunited after
40 years.


Funds



found



to finish



bypass


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

After reassessing available
funds, the Florida Department
of Transportation has come up
with $8 million-plus for right-
of-way purchases it is assign-
ing to the final segment of the
Venice Bypass.
The previously unfunded
portion of the bypass has been
a source of controversy for
the Sarasota/Manatee Metro-
politan Planning Organization,
which is updating its long-
range plan.
The board took seven
months to study whether to
leave a segment of U.S. 41
between Gulf Coast Boulevard
and Center Road just four
lanes. In January the MPO
agreed to widen the entire
Venice Bypass to six lanes -
its original plan.
Jim Bennett, aVenice City
Council member and MPO
board member, said FDOT's
recalculation is great news for
Venice.
"It pretty much puts the
project on the map," Bennett
said. "This internal realloca-
tion I think (was) heavily
persuaded by the 10-4 vote"
earlier this year to widen all
segments. "It's a big change,
and we are very happy."
"That puts it back into a
pretty normal (funding) track,"
Bennett said.
FDOT found the monies by
reassessing estimates and from
projects that came in under
budget.
FDOT requested the MPO
amend the amount allocated
to redesign the I-75/U.S. 301
interchange from $16.8 mil-
lion to $8 million, and allocate
the balance of the design
funds ($8.8 million) to par-
tial right-of-way purchases
for the project. The inter-
change will cost an estimated

Snyder claims breach of contract


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

City of Venice Finance Direc-
tor Jeff Snyder this week respect-
fully declined the mayor's offer
to reduce his benefits, setting up
what could be a showdown over
his employment.
Last week Mayor John Holic sent
Snyder a memo informing him he
still has a job, but the city would
carry out what he considers was
a directive given almost six years
ago when voters removed charter
officer status from the finance
director's position.


Now a department
head, Snyder has
been getting about
$25,000 in benefits
above his salary, now
set at $131,040, asso-
ciated with the char-
ter officer position.
Those, said the SNYDER
mayor, would have
to go.
Holic's memo stated the ben-
efits free health care, deferred
compensation, paying the
employee share of his pension and
a severance package, among other
things would be eliminated as


of today, Feb. 29.
In a letter dated Feb. 27, Sny-
der called the move a breach of
contract, which he said initiates
a 30-day cure period called for
in the original 2006 employment
contract, and threatened to quit.
Snyder said he was assured by
both the mayor and city man-
ager in 2006 "that the only thing
that would change if the charter
amendment passed was to whom
I reported" the city manager,
instead of city council.
Snyder, the first CPA to hold the

Spike in gas prices causes heartburn


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

Lynn Donaldson, who
moved to North Port
from Pennsylvania in
1998, has been frustrated
by the price of gas for
"quite a while."
Donaldson, 64, a
disabled plumber and
hospital engineer, drives
a 1998 Jeep Cherokee,
lately paying about $100
to fill the tank as he
drives around town, serv-
ing as an officer in Moose
Lodge 764, shopping at
local home improve-
ment stores and going
to doctors' offices for an
array of medical issues,
including cancer, a bad
back and a bad heart.
His wife, Joan, drives
a 2010 Kia Soul when
shopping around North
Port; she works for Venice
Regional Medical Center.
"We try to shop locally
as much as possible," he
said.
Shopping locally for gas
is more of a necessity now.


"The feeling is that we
are being ripped off,"
Donaldson said. "Last
week for instance, at the
Chevron station on U.S.
41, in two-and-one-half
days the price went up
four times. It went from
$3.61 to $3.67 to $3.71 to
$3.76 (per gallon; it was
$3.77 Monday). The Shell
stations (on U.S. 41 in
North Port) did the same
thing. I have to pass
them all the time."
Donaldson said the
price of gasoline is
affecting his ability to
purchase the many
medications he and his
wife take.
Retail gasoline prices
in Florida have risen 8.2
cents per gallon in the
past week, averaging
$3.74 per gallon Sun-
day, according to www.
floridastategasprices.
com. Comparatively,
the national average has
increased 11.3 cents per
gallon, to $3.64.
The price of both oil
and gas has increased


in recent weeks after
reports of heightened
tensions with Iran and
the bailout of the Greek
economy.
Prices on Sunday in
Florida were 36.4 cents
per gallon higher than
the same day one year
ago and are 23 cents
per gallon higher than
a month ago, according
to floridastategasprices.
com. The national aver-
age has gone up 26.6
cents per gallon during
the past 30 days.
"2012 is looking
increasingly like 2008,"
Gregg Laskoski, senior
petroleum analyst for
floridastategasprices.
com, said in an e-mail.
"Gasoline prices are
climbing aggressively as
speculation drives crude
oil higher. The volatil-
ity in the Middle East...
has everyone wondering
'How high is up?'"
Steve Pereira is won-
dering how he is going
to afford to support his
family.


"It's ridiculous. Every-
thing that we make is
just going into the gas
tank," Pereira, who owns
a handyman service,
said at a Shell station
in North Port Monday.
"It's beyond 'cut back' at
home. There's a slow-
down on the shopping
and, basically, everything


else. We don't even get to
go out anymore."
Added Andrea Lay-
mon, 53, who was pump-
ing gas at a RaceTrac,
"It's outrageous ... I go
straight to work and
straight back, nowhere
else except the grocery
store once a month. I
figure by the end of the


month it will be $4 (a
gallon)."
Gas prices are expected
to increase well into
spring and summer.

County approves environmental projects


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER
Sarasota County
commissioners have
approved two complex
projects designed to help
the environment.
First, they endorsed
an agreement with the
Southwest Florida Water
Management District for
the $3.58 million Dona
Bay Restoration-Cow Pen
Slough weir structure
project. Both entities will
pay about $1.79 million.
Then they approved an
ordinance establishing
locations, boundaries,
energy standards and
eligibility criteria for the
Energy Economic Zone
pilot program.
The criteria for the
EEZ ordinance, which
also could help the local
economy, include:
Boundaries that
encompass the land-
fill, the major employ-
ment centers such
as the intersection of


Sewer


Interstate 75 and Jaca-
randa Boulevard, and
on South River Road in
Englewood, the original
EEZ State Road 681 prop-
erties and municipalities
that may choose to opt
in.
Changing the defi-
nition of eligible green
businesses to those in
the industrial, manufac-
turing or research and
development sectors
who agree to minimize
their adverse environ-
mental impact through
landscaping, water
conservation, recycling
and other energy-saving
practices.
Requiring eligible
businesses to promise
to create five new jobs
(clean-technology busi-
nesses or green business
research and develop-
ment), or 10 new jobs
(green businesses in
the manufacturing and
industrial sectors).
Requiring exist-
ing buildings owned


by eligible businesses
to have Energy Star
ratings of 60, up from
50 (which is average).
Commissioners talked
about lowering the mini-
mum, but chose not to.
Commissioners met
the March 1 state dead-
line. The program will
start July 1, after com-
missioners pass a resolu-
tion outlining the details.
Companies aspiring to
participate will be scored
and rated to determine
eligibility.
The Dona Bay agree-
ment vote was 3-2, with

developing a water sup-

This initial phase
will divert water to
a treatment facility
where nitrogen will be
removed, and then it will
be discharged back into
the bay. Ultimately, the
plan will restore balance
to the mixture of fresh
water and salt water in
the bay. Staff said it also
will protect property


owners from flood
damage.
Phase one includes
construction of a weir
(water structure) to
prevent fresh water
from Cow Pen Slough
from flowing into the
bay. Eventually, it will
be diverted to a water-
treatment plant, where
it will be converted into
drinking water.

Island gas station being renovated


GONDOLIER PHOTO BY ROGER BUTTON


Contractor Adams Tank & Lift of Longwood has started
preparing for the removal of old gas tanks at the BP Island
Gas Station, 116 North Tamiami Trail. Within the next four
weeks they will be replaced with new tanks, lines and pumps.


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Undergoing a major
upgrade renovation is the
28-year-old gas station
at 116 North Tamiami
Trail, at the Venice Avenue
Bridge and Business 41.
Old gas tanks are being
removed and replaced and
new lines and gas pumps
will be installed. Work is
anticipated to be com-
pleted in four weeks, said


a spokesperson for the
contractor, Adams Tank &
Lift of Longwood, Fla.
According to the Sara-
sota County property
appraiser, the station,
which most recently sold
BP gasoline, is owned by
AMJ Oil Co. Inc. of Davie,
Fla., which acquired it in
a multi-parcel transaction
totaling $1.75 million in
June 2004 from Mobil Oil
Company.
The station closed


about two years ago. A
handwritten notice on the
door said "Store closed
- out of business" and
the inventory had been
removed. At the time the
manager, Rajan Markose,
confirmed the station
had closed because new
underground storage
tanks were required and
financing for the replace-
ment cost of $250,000
was not available from a
lender.


Since closing it has
become an eyesore at the
gateway to downtown
Venice.
Minutes of the Munici-
pal Code Enforcement
Board meeting held Aug. 4,
2011, state AMJ Oil Com-
pany was found guilty of
violating city ordinances
with offensive accumula-
tions, but as the violation
had been corrected, no
fine was imposed.

Office program helps businesses, owners


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Terry Purdy, broker and
owner of Merritt Realty
Resources, has a new project
to help small businesses
wanting to grow but experi-
encing difficulties operating
from home or in cramped
quarters, or in need of addi-
tional resources.
His Merritt Excess Office
Leasing Program is also
beneficial to property own-
ers and businesses wanting
to turn empty spaces into
revenue-producing offices.
After getting several phone
calls for services, and even
more calls for small office
suites, Purdy realized there
was a need for a service
bringing parties together,
creating newfound oppor-
tunities for both. The small
business owner gets the use
of the Internet, copier, fax,
conference rooms, phone
system and reception areas,
and the property owner gets
a tenant.
Conversion is easy,
inexpensive and fast under
Purdy's model by adding
secure locks on the doors

Location loses its

fourth restaurant

By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST
For the fourth time the lights are out
and the door is locked at 900 Vene-
tia Blvd., just north of the northern
intersection of U.S. 41 Business and
U.S. Bypass. This time the shuttered
business is Caf6 Italia Ristorante.
The 200-seat restaurant opened in
December 2010, with owner Adriano
Pucci promising to bring an upscale,
authentic New York-style Italian menu
prepared and cooked to order to Venice.
At the time, he was operating Caf6
Italia restaurants in Naples (opened
June 2008) and at the Miramar Outlets
in Estero. The Estero location closed in
February last year, closely followed by
the North Naples operation in March.
Bella Brezza, the third restaurant to
have opened in the location, closed
in July 2010 after a life of a little
more than eight months. Providing
employment for 20, the local family
project served a traditional Italian
menu with American dishes.
Casey's Grill and Bar survived for
two years but, like the KeyWest Grill,
the original tenant, failed due to the
economic downturn and, according
to a commercial Realtor, "too many
seats for too few diners."

Man tasered, Baker-Acted after setting fire to studio


A Nokomis musician
was arrested for arson
Friday evening after he

his studio.
According
to a Sara-
sota County
Sheriff's
Office
report:
FIORENTINO Anthony
Fiorentino,
59, 1500 block Sweet-
land St., was drinking
wine with associates and
recording in his garage
studio.
After they left, Fioren-
tino's girlfriend, the hom-
eowner, asked him to
clean up a mess he had
made in the main house.
They began arguing and
he allegedly pushed her
down on the couch.
He then allegedly picked
up a lighter and attempted
to set the speakers on fire.
The girlfriend left to call
911. When she returned,
the garage was engulfed in
flames.
She got into her vehicle
and fled. He attempted
to extinguish the fire with
a garden hose.
When deputies arrived,
Fiorentino was in a daze.
He was ordered away
from the burning struc-
ture but ignored instruc-
tions. To remove him
from the scene, a deputy
used a Taser on Fioren-
tino. He fell on the pave-
ment and cut his head as
a result of the fall.
He also admitted to
setting the fire.
The Sarasota County
Fire Department was
able to extinguish the
fire, but not before an
estimated $100,000 in
damage was done.
Fiorentino's website
states he is a professional
musician, guitar player,
singer, producer and
engineer/owner of Bare
Bones Recording studio.
Fiorentino was charged
with arson and resist-
ing an officer. He was
Baker-Acted for his own
protection. Bond was set
at $250,750. Additional
charges are pending.

Department
report:
Officers
responded
to gunfire at
1 a.m. in the
park. Eight
people were
standing
outside a


vehicle by the pond area.
All denied knowledge of
gunfire.
All were asked to sub-
mit written statements.
One acknowledged the
noise was in fact gun-
fire and the defendants
named were the only
shooters. Another added
that the two were over-
heard saying if the cops
came they would throw
the gun in the water.
Police determined the
group stood by while
Robert B. Frazier, 21, 100
block E. Airport Ave.,

Stambaugh, 21, 1000
block Groveland Ave.,
Venice, were shooting at
alligators.
Officers found a rifle
under the waterline but
still visible near the bank
of the pond, along with
.22 shell casings.
Both were charged
with attempting to kill
or injure an alligator
without authority, and
fraud. Bond was set at
$370.
The alligators were
apparently uninjured.


Venice Beach
vehicle burglary
suspects caught
Venice police officers
arrested two men in sepa-

them with burglary.
According to a VPD
release:
On Saturday, Feb. 25,
around 7:30 a.m. sev-
eral friends gathered
at Venice Beach to jog.
While they were on the
beach, Joshua Thomas
Simmons, 24, allegedly
broke into several cars by
smashing the windows
with a rock and stole
items from the vehicles.
Simmons was stopped
in the downtown area
after an officer identi-
fied him as matching
the description of a man
who had been in the
beach parking lot earlier.
A search revealed a
gold-colored money clip
that one of the victims
described as having been
stolen.
Besides the burglary
charge, Simmons faces
charges of criminal mis-
chief of more than $1,000
and petit theft.
Sunday morning,
Feb. 26, around 1:45 a.m.
Peter Esteve, 33, 300

Upper-Back Pain
DR. DAN BUSCH, DR. ERENE ROMANSKI


CHIRUHKRACT I
While lower-back pain often results from
lifting heavy objects incorrectly or having
inadequate muscle strength to keep the
spine in alignment, upper-back pain is
usually caused by poor posture. A good
example of this pain-inducing posture is the
position that many office workers assume
while hunched at their desks. This improper
posture overstresses the muscles at the base


of the neck. As they battle to hold the head
upright, intervertebral discs become
strained, ligaments pull, and muscle
imbalances arise. The resulting pain may
lead many to the chiropractor. Long-term
relief may be best realized by adhering to
the posture recommendations and a
program of stretching exercises presented
by the chiropractor in hopes of staving off
further problems.

OUR VIEW



Texting-while-driving ban seems doomed


Of all the puzzling things that
occur in the state capital, per-
haps none has caused as much
skull-scratching in the past two years
as the inability of lawmakers to pass a
texting-while-driving law in any form,
even a minimal measure.
Astounding.
You'd think it would be a slam dunk,
especially when you consider the
overwhelming public opinion favoring
such a law.
The AAA Foundation for Traffic
Safety found that 95 percent of drivers
surveyed last year thought texting
while driving was a serious threat to
their personal safety. That item even
managed to edge out those concerned
about drinking and driving, which
scored a mere 93 percent.
The same survey said 87 percent
supported laws against reading,


typing or sending a text message or
email while driving. Pretty strong
numbers; what normally qualifies as
a no-brainer. (In fact, half of all those
surveyed said they'd support a law
that forbade the use of any type of
cellphone, even hands-free systems,
by any driver at any time.)
But, still, unless there is a Tebow-
style fourth-quarter comeback this
session, a text-ban bill appears
headed for another defeat. Again.
Last year, a texting bill sponsored
by Sen. Nancy Detert, R-Venice, made
it to the Senate floor, where it passed
by an overwhelming 34-4 margin. The
problem? The House refused to move
it.
Last week, Detert's bill (SB 416)
won 20-1 approval in the Senate
Budget Committee. It is due back on
the floor again, where it is expected


to receive overwhelming approval.
The problem, again? The compan-
ion House bill, sponsored by Rep.
Ray Pilon, R-Sarasota, has gotten
nowhere. It is stalled in the Transpor-
tation Committee with little hope of
escape. The simple math is that while
so many others support it, one criti-
cal legislator does not: the committee
chair.
And so it doesn't go.
What makes this all the more
astounding is the fact that this bill is
extremely light. It does not ban cell-
phones. It does not even make texting
while driving a primary offense.
In this bill, texting would be a
secondary offense, which means
police would need another reason to
pull people over before giving them a
ticket for texting. A first-time offender
would be fined $30 for a nonmoving


violation; a second offense within
five years would cost $60. There are
exceptions for emergency workers,
for GPS devices and even for reading
cellphone messages. In fact, it's for the
action of typing only.
Thirty-five other states and the
District of Columbia already ban tex-
ting in some form. Distracted driving
was linked to 3,092 highway deaths
last year, according to the National
Transportation Safety Board. Not all
distracted driving accidents involved
cellphone use, but all indications are
that the phenomenon is becoming
more and more commonplace every
day. We know it. We see it. We know it's
dangerous. The fact that the Legisla-
ture won't begin to address the prob-
lem with a minimal law of this type is
enough to make you scratch your skull
until it bleeds.


Amazing SCF


/ a


I have been on the road
for a bit and have lots to
share with you. I have been
to Sarasota, down to the
Plantation and on 41 over the
last few weeks and will dedi-
cate some space to inform
you about what I have wit-
nessed as I am most amazed
at the entities and the people
who make the gears turn in
whatever their chosen path
happens to be.
Let's start here, shall we?
Nestled on a beauti-
ful piece of land south on
U.S. 41, roughly the same
distance from Venice as it is
North Port and Englewood,
lies the Venice campus of
State College of Florida,
Manatee-Sarasota. This facil-
ity is most certainly one that
pays attention to the needs
of our youth and structures
their education accordingly.
This institution is ably
led by Provost Darlene C.
Wedler-Johnson, who also
happens to be an incredibly
warm and friendly human
being; additionally, she was
co-tour guide. I told her in
November I wanted to ride
on a golf cart and she deliv-
ered. The provost's partner
for this event was none other
than Kathy Walker, director of
public affairs and marketing.
She is a font of knowledge
about her college and can
answer just about any ques-
tion concerning the campus,
the classes and the curricu-
lum. However, her alligator
knowledge is limited.
The day started out with a
light lunch and an overview
of the facility, staff and oper-
ations. It was a well-timed
and very informative lunch
at which we learned an awful
lot about SCF For instance,
did you know that there are
480 full-time employees serv-
ing both counties?
State College of Florida is
in the business of helping
people change their lives.
That's a pretty bold statement
when you think about it. I


asked, "What does it mean to
have SCF in the community
and for students to graduate
from SCF"? The answer was
pretty compelling, and I will
try to frame it for you.
First, this is an open-door
college; anyone with a high
school diploma or GED can
be admitted to SCE Students
are a combination of people
recently graduated from
high school, people coming
back after long separations
from the education process
or people having to retool as
their jobs are fading away.
SCF also attracts Bright
Futures scholars and other
achievers for various reasons
that include scholarships and
parental influence. Overall,
students tend to make a
deliberate choice to attend
SCF instead of other schools.
This sets up an incredible
teaching environment as you
combine all the ages, skills
and experience levels into
one setting and simply teach,
taking advantage of youth,
experience and worldviews
that encompass generations.
That has to be a stimulating
experience every day.
A healthy mixture of
human resolve and higher
education has produced
almost 40,000 graduates in a
54-year span, and a majority
of these graduates stay close
to home. They teach our kids,
build our houses, birth our
children and work for our
newspapers. The graduates
pay taxes, serve on boards
and handle concessions at
Little League games.
SCF shapes lives, futures
and progress while making
a student's two- or four-year
stay there an educational
dream. If you don't think that
SCF is woven into the very
fabric of our community via
its graduates and the work
they do, hop into your car
and go witness the dream in
action. I did and I am darn
glad I took the time.
SCF is contributing to the
future of this community
and the people in our region.
I often speak of moving
forward as a human being,
as a newspaper and as com-
munity how do we shape
the next 70 years? Friends,
the people at SCF are not
just talking about it, they are
doing that today.

Not Siesta. These South
County officials should stop
comparing Venice Beach with
Siesta Key and butt out. The
city of Venice and Venice Beach
are unique. What we have here
is one of a kind. The best thing
ever. We harm nothing. We
hurt no one. It's peaceful, it's
wonderful and those officials
are just trying to create prob-
lems where none exist. Not
to mention the fact that they
need to justify their jobs. Why
don't they do something about
managing the rat population
at the jetty or controlling the
drunk drivers on Siesta Beach
so pedestrians don't get run
over and killed? Instead, they
come down here and all they
see is dollar signs, here to
harass us. Leave it alone. We
are totally different from Siesta
Beach.
Butt out. I can't believe what
I'm reading on the front page
of the Gondolier Why is our
city government getting into
yoga on our beach, something
that is really none of their
business? Nobody's making
money on the beach with the
yoga classes. So what! Let it
continue. I don't care if 300
people show up. If they want
to congregate at the beach at
that time and are not hurting
anybody, why does the city
have to get involved? I think
the government needs to get
out of our business! I am sick
of it!
Editor's Note: As the story
stated several times, it's
Sarasota County, not the city
of Venice, that was seeking to
regulate the classes.
No look. I do believe that
traffic is worse this year, espe-
cially this time of year, and I'll
tell you why. People here from
other states don't look. They
don't look when they're driving
a car, when they're walking or
when they're riding a bicycle.
Kids get out of school and
parents are picking up their
children, and then the bridge
goes up. Is there a way not to
raise the bridge when the kids


Let 'em




cry l


Have It
are getting out of school? High
school gets out at a quarter of
2 and the elementary school
gets out at 3. So, we have all
those people trying to get
home, the bridge goes up and
you can't get anywhere. I hope
you can do something about it.
You first. I've noticed that
many politicians today are
encouraging Israel to attack
Iran and promising that we'll
send lots of people over to help
out. Those who are running for
president have a lot of children
who'd make fine front-line
troops. May I recommend that
all our politicians send some of
their sons and daughters over
to the Army as soon as possible
and become combat soldiers.
Not missed. This Gondolier
was more interesting than
some of them have been. It
was nice not to see the mayor's
picture. We all know who he
is by now. I wonder about the
complaining about the jetty
restrooms. Don't they realize
that vandalism will happen as
soon as they repair the place?
And what condition was the
ladies room in?
Quit it. I agree with wasting
space. Stop giving Mr. Mar-
tin so much print space. He
chose not to run rather than


face what would have been
an embarrassing trouncing
at the ballot box. Yet he still
thinks it's necessary to pres-
ent his opinions to us poor,
uneducated citizens. He wasn't
a good mayor or leader. And
unless you are so desperate for
columns, you shouldn't be giv-
ing him a platform to continue
to annoy your subscribers with
his unwanted rhetoric. Please,
stop printing Ed Martin's stuff.
Help out. Our Mother's
House is celebrating 25 years

Religious freedom under attack


As many are aware,
a recent Health and
Human Services man-
date will require Catholic
organizations and busi-
ness owners to provide
abortion-inducing drugs,
sterilization and contra-
ception services through
their health insurance
plans. The newest ver-
sion of the mandate
would require health
insurance companies,
even those paid by reli-
gious organizations, to
provide these "services"
for "free."
Have you ever heard
of free services from an
insurance company?
Neither had the Catholic
Bishops' Conference; and
so we reject the presi-
dent's proposal as an
accounting gimmick and
continue to identify the
real issue an assault
on religious liberty and
freedom of conscience.
Many editorials and


letters to the editor
have missed the mark
on why the church does
not accept the presi-
dent's proposal. Further
straining the nature of
the debate, many have
offered up very poor
definitions of liberty and
freedom, at least as they
relate to religion and the
First Amendment.
Perhaps an actual
definition of religious
liberty would be helpful.
Merriam-Webster Dic-
tionary defines liberty as
"freedom from arbitrary
or despotic control."
Further, freedom is
defined as "the absence
of necessity, coercion, or
constraint in choice or
action."
Forcing religious
organizations to provide
that which violates their
beliefs is a coercive and
despotic attempt to con-
trol the internal workings
of those organizations
and their core beliefs.
Religious freedom is more
than worship or holding
beliefs; it's about living
those beliefs in all of life.
Some complain that
the issue of religious
liberty is "overshad-
owing" the issues of
abortion-inducing
drugs, sterilization and


contraception. Religious
liberty and freedom
of conscience is at the
forefront of the debate
because it is enshrined
in the First Amendment
of the Constitution, and
abortion-inducing drugs,
sterilization and contra-
ception are not. Allowing
the government to coerce
a religious organization
to violate the tenets of its
faith is unconstitutional
and a dangerous prec-
edent for all people, not
just Catholics.
The claim has also
been made that since
many Catholic organiza-
tions are designated as
tax-exempt nonprofits,
they should just accept
the government's intru-
sion and should do
the governments bid-
ding. Tax-exempt status
should not be used as a
bull's-eye.
To be clear, the Catho-
lic Church and other
nonprofits are given tax-
exempt status because
of the overall societal
good they produce, often
doing what government is
unable to do. The Diocese
of Venice, for instance,
serves tens of thousands
of people every year who
would otherwise be left
in tremendous need. If


I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Leave beach yoga alone
Editor:
I've lived in Venice
for six years, and I just
started my fifth year
attending the free beach
yoga classes with Elin
Larsen on Venice Beach.
In my humble opinion, it
is the best things about
Venice and the entire
Southwest Florida area.
I want to take issue
with some of the com-
ments made by Sarasota
County officials. The
county is most definitely
trying to change our yoga
on the beach, as it has
been since it first started.
It wants to be in control
because after all these
years of hard work by Elin
and the resulting growth
and popularity, it sees
dollar signs and is money
hungry and greedy. The
officials involved are
trying to justify their jobs
and create a problem
where none exists. We
don't need to be con-
trolled by them, and they
need to stop comparing
the quietVenice Beach
area to what they do at
Siesta Beach. It is totally
different up there.
During the yoga classes
at the beach there has
never been a problem
with public access to the
beach, never a problem
with parking (a lot of peo-
ple walk, ride their bike
or car pool), the location
is always available and
never has there been an
issue of public safety or
harm to any sea turtle or
any other type of wildlife.
We quietly socialize, enjoy
the health benefits of
yoga out in the fresh area
with a view of the Gulf,
take only pictures and
leave only footprints. We
have enjoyed and seen
some amazing things
while taking these free
yoga classes.
Elin Larsen's beach


yoga classes are so
popular because of many
things. Elin is one of the
world's best yoga instruc-
tors and has more than
30 years' experience.
She is a former Olympic
athlete and a certified
lifeguard, and is very
knowledgeable about
health and nutrition. We
are very lucky to have
her, and because of what
she has done for this
community, the county
should be paying her.
The classes are free, and
people enjoy having fun
and socializing.
We do not need the
county butting in and
trying to exert con-
trol where no control
is needed. The city of
Venice has a jewel here
on Venice Beach and the
mayor and city coun-
cil need to step up and
protect it just the way it
is. If county officials need
something to do, they
should control the drunk
drivers killing innocent
pedestrians on Siesta,
and control the rat prob-
lem at the Venice Jetty.

Pay up and shut up
Editor:
Where did the Republi-
can mentality come from
that suggests that a tax
on the richer percent of
our population is entirely
going to welfare? Presi-
dent Obama's intention
is to lower the taxes of
common working people
and raise taxes on super
wealthy people; actually,
he wants to take some tax
breaks away from them.
The premise that rich
business people are creat-
ing jobs is an excuse that
is growing older by the
day. When people earning
less than $250,000 a year

of their wages in taxes
than a multimillionaire or
billionaire, something is
not right. Really big busi-
nesses and corporations
are expanding and hiring,
but it is in Mexico, China,
Japan. This is not help-
ing our economy, as I see
it. We need to keep our
good-paying jobs here in
America.
The middle class of
America is the backbone
of this great country.
When they are prosper-
ing and making decent
wages, they buy houses,
cars, etc. My husband
and I worked hard all of
our life, put away money
in retirement accounts
and one year after we
retired lost everything
that hard-earned money
earned over the years
when 2001 happened. We
were lucky enough to at
least come out of it with
what we put in, but lost
all of the capital gains
that had been made. This
has put us at the mercy of
Social Security because
what is left would not last
us more than a couple of
years if we lived only on


that tax-exempt status
is removed, it might be
perceived as a victory for
abortion and contracep-
tive advocates, but it is
a devastating loss to the
poor, sick, hungry and
dying.
It is important to
remember that the
church's charitable work
is motivated by the same
faith that rejects the use
of abortion-inducing
drugs, sterilization and
contraception. The
government is attacking
the spiritual foundation
that motivates Catholics
to serve the public good
(e.g., charities, universi-
ties, schools, hospitals,
food pantries, low-
income housing, preg-
nancy centers, etc). In
doing so the government
completely misses the
point of what constitutes


faith and what makes a
Catholic organization
truly Catholic.
Many believe that
this contentious debate
over whether religious
organizations should be
forced to provide morally
objectionable "services"
is a "Catholic issue."
Not so. The Catholic
Church has been joined
by members of many
other faith communities.
Additionally, in a letter
to the HHS Secretary,
attorneys general of 10
states, including Florida's
attorney general, wrote,
"Should this unconsti-
tutional mandate be
promulgated, we are
prepared to vigorously
oppose it in court."
Sounds like the Church
is not alone in fighting
this mandate.
When a government


coerces a religious orga-
nization, or any group,
against its will and in
violation of the Constitu-
tion, many people see
the writing on the wall -
it is only a matter of time
before they are next.
The only complete
solution is to eliminate
the mandate. There is a
lot on the line, and for
that reason our voices
will not be silenced until
justice is restored.
The church has a
long history of fighting
injustice and persecu-
tion. If the mandate is
pursued, be assured that
the church will resist
coercive despotism once
again.

Bishop Frank J.
Dewane is the head of
the 10-county Diocese of
Venice.

SOFTBALL CLASS 7A-DISTRICT 11




First inning dooms Venice


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

Venice fought to the end but couldn't
overcome a five-run first inning as
Braden River notched a 6-3 victory in a
Class 7A-District 11 game at Venice High.
The Lady Pirates (6-1) batted around
in the first inning with four hits but it
was errors in the first inning which cost
Venice as all of Braden River's runs were
unearned.
Venice starting pitcher Megan Quinn
opened with a strikeout but the run-
ner reached base on a passed ball on
the third strike. After a fly out, Kenya
Yancey singled and moved to second
on another passed ball. Jessica Cador-
ette reached on an infield error to score
one run. With two outs, Hannah Loyer
doubled down the right field line to
score two runs. Hannah Ryan's bloop
double down the left field line and
single by Elena Lopez scored the fourth


and fifth runs.
"That first inning killed us," said
Venice coach Fred Sosnoski. "When you
spot a team like Braden River five runs
in the first inning, it's going to be very
difficult to battle back. They only have
one loss on the year."
Still, Venice didn't quit.
In the bottom of the inning with two
outs, Kelly Ott walked. Emalee Sands
then ripped a double into the right-cen-
ter field gap to score Ott from first base.
Braden River added a run in the
fourth inning on three hits.
Venice had a runner in scoring position
in the fourth inning off a two-out triple by
Carly Rosa but she was stranded.
Sands pitched the final two innings
and gave up just one hit.
The Lady Indians (1-6) scored two
runs in the bottom of the sixth inning
off Braden River starter Loyer.
With two outs, Chelsey LaFountain
doubled into right-center field gap.


Rosa lined a single up the middle to
score LaFountain. Michaela Penner
reached on an error moving Rosa to
third base. Rosa came home on a wild
pitch by Loyer.
"We battled back and we didn't stop,"
said Sosnoski. "We kept on fighting and
pushing. I keep on telling them that we
just need to have that one spark or one
thing that pushes us over. I think we are
close to that."
Braden River's Courtney Mirabella
finished off Venice in the seventh inning
in relief with a hit and three strikeouts.
Sosnoski was pleased with the team

VENICE DOWNS BRADEN
RIVER: Venice's Nick Longhi knocked
in the eventually winning run with
a single in the fifth inning, then
the Indians rode the arm of Cooper
Hammond over the final 31/3
innings to pick up a 4-3 win over
Braden River in a Class 7A-District 11
game at Braden River High.
The Indians (3-2 overall, 1-1
district) jumped out to a 3-0 lead
with two runs in the first inning and
another run in the second inning.
In the first inning, Rex Ingerick
and Grant Banko opened the game
with consecutive singles. Longhi's
sacrifice fly scored Ingerick and
Banko went to third base. Kevin
Guthrie followed with another
sacrifice fly to score Banko.
In the second inning, Michael
Rivera led off with a double but the
courtesy runner was erased on a
pickoff. Guthrie walked and moved
to second on a groundout and
eventually scored on an error by the
pitcher.
Braden River got two runs back in
the bottom of the third inning on a
two-run double.
With one out in the fifth inning,
Banko singled and moved to second
on an error. Longhi followed with a
single into right field to score Banko
giving Venice a 4-2 lead.
Hammond (2-0) entered the
game with two outs in the fourth
inning and got a groundout with
bases loaded.
Braden River pulled within 4-3
with a run in the bottom of the

worse than they were.
After the rockets hit our
boat I had real trouble
hearing.
"I got on the radio and
told the control officer I
needed a medical evacu-
ation helicopter right
away or people were
going to die," he said. "By
then two gunships had
already been scrambled,
but a Medevac 'copter
was 30 minutes away at
best.
"One of the gun-
ship guys said, after he
expended his ammo,
he would land and take
out our wounded. He
hovered over us firing
his Gatling gun at the VC
(Viet Cong). The empty
shell casings from his
gun bounced off our
steel helipad."
Then he landed.
"All I remember is the
rockets hitting while I
was steering the boat. I
fell down on the deck.
The next thing I know is
I can hear the helicopter
landing on our boat. I
asked for my glasses and
after that I fell asleep

again," Ngo said.
"The two UDT guys
and myself loaded the
wounded, including
Soan, onto the helicopter
with the help of the door
gunner," Milstead said.
"His face was swollen
and bloody. He had bad
shrapnel wounds up and
down one side of his
body.
"Soan lost his glasses
and asked for them. I
found then and handed
them to him as he was
lifted into the helicopter.
The door gunner took
one look at him and
shook his head. It was
obvious he thought Soan
wasn't gonna make it.
"The next day, after I
was stitched up and sent
back to the boat, I asked
about Soan. I was told
none of the Vietnamese
crew survived the rocket
attack. I thought Soan
had been killed and
didn't know differently
until he called me 40
years later."
Ngo spent the next two
months recovering from
his injuries in a South
Vietnamese hospital.
He had sustained 70
shrapnel wounds in the
boat attack. He was dis-
charged from the Navy


because of his injuries
a year later and went
to work for the Saigon
Water Company until the
end of the war.
"Then the Communists
took over the country in
1975 and I was sent to
a concentration camp,"
Ngo said.
When he finally got
out of the camp he knew
there was no future
under the Communists
and started making plans
to escape the country.
During his first escape
from Vietnam, he took
his two oldest children
with him.
"On the third attempt I
took my wife, Hanh, and
our youngest child out of
the country. We ended up
in a Cambodian refugee
camp for four months
while my paperwork was
being approved," Ngo
said.
Because of his mili-
tary service and serious
wounds sustained during
the Vietnam War, Ngo
and his family qualified
for refugee status in the
U.S.
"On Sept. 24, 1981, my
family and I flew from
Singapore by Southwest
Airlines to the U.S. and
on to New York City,


where we lived to start.
With welfare assistance
and the job I got working
at a Chinese restaurant
in New York's Chinatown,
we survived," he said.
Through hard work
and ability he became
a chef in the restaurant.
A short while later, in
1988, he decided to move
his family and take a
job working as a chef at
a Japanese steakhouse
in Sarasota. When that
restaurant was sold in
1990, Soan took the
plunge and opened his
own restaurant, Shogun
Japanese Steakhouse in
Venice.
Ngo had tried to locate
Milstead in his spare
time with no success. On
several occasions he told
his Vietnam story about
trying to find Milstead
to Jack Gang, owner of
Brand Realty in Venice.
They become friends.
Gang has spent a consid-
erable amount of time in
his restaurant.
"I told Soan one day
last year to write every-
thing down about Jim he
could remember. With
that information I began
to search for him on the
Internet, but had no luck
either," Gang said.


He broke off his
quest until one day last
December when he got
bored watching a football
game and started search-
ing again. Gang found a
clue someone named
Jim Milstead was help-
ing sponsor a golf game
in South Carolina for
"Wounded Warriors."
"I got this phone call
from Jack, who said
he was a Florida Real-
tor who was calling for
a friend who served in
Vietnam in 1970-71,"
said Milstead, who lives
in Ocean Isle Beach, S.C.
"He wanted to know if I
served in River Division
41 on Tango Boat-1277
with a guy named Soan
Ngo. 'If you're the guy,
Soan wants you to know
he's been looking for you
for 30 years.'
"I told Jack to give
Soan my phone num-
ber. A few minutes later
my phone rang, but I
couldn't pick it up," Mil-
stead said. "Then it went
to voicemail and I heard
Soan's voice for the first
time in decades.
"I was speechless. I
called him back. We had
a nice little 10-minute
talk after all these years.
I can't explain how I felt


about all this.
"On Christmas Day I
called Soan again and we
agreed my wife, Cathy,
and I should drive down
to Venice on Presidents
Day weekend and see
them."
For 48 hours, the two
old sailors relived a
bygone war fought when
they were both young
petty officers on the
other side of the world.
In between reliving their
military adventures
half a lifetime ago, they
checked out the sights
the Venice-Sarasota area
has to offer.
Both said they won't
wait so long to get
together in the future.
"I owe America a lot
of things my wife, my
kids. America is a won-
derful place to live," Ngo
said. "And the best thing
is my freedom. Whatever
I talk and I can talk, and
whatever I think I can
do."

$270 million.
That frees up other
funds to be utilized
for the segment of the
Venice Bypass from Gulf
Coast Boulevard to Albee
Farm Road, which in
turn frees up advance
construction funds
(allowing the depart-
ment to borrow from
future allocation of MPO
funds) to fund the right-
of-way purchases for
the final segment of the
Venice Bypass in fiscal
years 2017 and 2018.
"We've got a list of
projects for advanced
production," said
FDOT's Frank Meares.
"The interstate is a very
important corridor. We
initially started talking
about this with staff.
After further discus-
sion with staff, we felt
we might be able to
help them accelerate
that final segment of
the Venice Bypass ...
if we are able to put
other monies into the
interchange."
The MPO will again
need to modify its long-
range plan to reflect
those new funds for the
bypass.
"They have to get all
their stars lined up to
get into a position to put
that into effect," Meares
said.
In May the MPO voted

finance director position
in years, said the money
he saved with his exper-
tise not only paid for his
additional salary and
benefits, but still provides
an additional annual sav-
ing of more than $225,000
to the city.
"There is a reason
that three city mayors
and three city managers
have not terminated my
contract," Snyder wrote.
"None of these people
have agreed with the city
attorney that my duties
have been substantially
changed ...," a reference
to contract language.
City Attorney Bob
Anderson said it's nothing
more than bringing Sny-
der's position in line with
other department heads.
"No other department
head has an employment
agreement," Anderson
said. "The voters have
said the charter has been
amended. It's incum-
bent upon the city to
implement that and
make whatever changes
are necessary. You can't
ignore it forever."
Snyder said it's his
wish that city council
will "agree with previous
administrations" and
reinstate his contract.
Barring that, Snyder
wrote, his letter is his offi-
cial notice to terminate
the agreement.
Council Member Bob
Daniels, who raised
the issue on numer-
ous occasions, said it's a
moral responsibility for
council to eliminate the
extra benefits that came
with a position that was
eliminated by a vote of
the people in November
2006.
It's not about his per-
formance, Daniels said.
The city is already
involved in several
employment disputes.
A building inspector
and a utilities employee
discharged last year are
fighting to get their jobs


back. One has an griev-
ance arbitration hearing
scheduled for March,
while the other's arbiter
determination is expected
out also this month.
A police officer is also
suing the city for harass-
ment. That is expected to
go to trial in June.

to hire a consultant to
conduct a peer review
of the bypass. Those
opposed to widening the
bypass said leaving it at
four lanes would save
up to $5 million that
could be spent on other
projects.
Dan Hardy of Renais-
sance Planning Group,
which conducted the
peer review, said the
only way to eliminate
the current bottleneck


where the road goes
from six lanes to four is
to widen the road.
Two advisory trans-
portation committees
overwhelmingly voted
to support widening the
entire stretch as well.
The middle and north
sections of the bypass
are already funded, with
construction scheduled
for 2014-16.

Literacy Festival speaker




sees red
By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


If you find a tasty and nutritious
tomato in the supermarket one day
in the future, thank Barry Estabrook,
award-winning author of "Tomatoland."
Estabrook is the featured speaker for
the eighth annual Venice High School
Literacy Celebration. He will speak with
students during the week and to the
public Thursday, March 1, in the high
school auditorium.
Past speakers for the literacy celebra-
tion have included Kaye Gibbons, Alice
Hoffman, David Relin and Alex Kotle-
witz. Estabrook is the first investigative
food journalist to be selected as the key
speaker. His selection proves the varied
careers one can pursue as a writer.
"Tomatoland: How Modern Industrial
Agriculture Destroyed Our Most Allur-
ing Fruit," was a natural outgrowth of
his 2010 James Beard Award-winning
article, "Politics of the Plate: The Price
of a Tomato," which was published in
Gourmet Magazine in 2009. The article
and book relate the saga of the tomato
from delicious fruit to a uniformly
round object that is long on shelf life
but short on flavor and nutrition. Read-
ers will learn that "it's essentially against
the law" to grow a decent tomato
because of all the rules and regulations
about color and shape.
"Tomatoland" also proves the power
of the pen. Because of this book,
changes are in the offing.
"The odds are 100 percent in favor of
someone making a tasty tomato," Esta-
brook said during a phone interview
from his home in Vermont. "What drew
me to (write about) the tomato is that,
unlike most of the food items we eat,
you can still go back and sample the
exact fruit from which it came."
Estabrook actually did that, traveling
to Peru, where it originated as a tiny
berry he described as smaller than a
pea.
"It was not as musky as a good
tomato, but if blindfolded you would
say, 'hmmmm, good,'" he said. "You
can understand why someone would
domesticate this."
He also went to school to learn about
picking tomatoes. His classmates were
migrant workers who would earn about
$7.25 an hour, have a lunch break and
regular breaks in a shady area provided
by the farmer. The class was one of the
very first in the state, sponsored by the
Coalition of Immokalee Workers.
Estabrook is a contributing editor for
Gourmet and was the founding edi-
tor of Eating Well magazine. He has
had articles published in the New York
Times magazine, Reader's Digest, Men's
Health and the Washington Post and is
a regular contributor to the Atlantic's
website.
Born in Ontario and now a resident
of Vermont, he worked for a "back-to-
the-land" organic gardening magazine
in the 1970s. That led him to food and
a job as founding editor of Eating Well
magazine.
His major interest is how food is pro-
duced and who produces it, he said.
In the Gourmet article, he pulled no
punches, telling readers that to eat a
winter tomato was to support slavery.

Barry Estabrook checking the process of making maple syrup by boiling sap from sugar maple trees in Vermont.


The modern-day slaves were primar-
ily illegal aliens who were offered what
sounded like good money but were then
charged exorbitant sums in order to
live in squalor, be ill-fed and be forced
to pay as much as $5 to use a hose for
a cold-water shower in the backyard of
the person who was nothing more than
a modern-day slave keeper.
Although different from working con-
ditions in the meat-packing industry as
described by Upton Sinclair in his book,
"The Jungle," the human toll described
was all too similar. In the Sinclair book,
people died in the packing plants. In
"Tomatoland," the human loss extended
to malformed fetuses and children born
with missing arms and legs and other
deformities. Chemicals used in tomato
production were blamed.
Estabrook takes the "Tomatoland"
story from the Pacific coastal des-
ert area of South America to Mexico,
Europe and finally to the land of
the BLT. Along the way, the nation's
"second-most-popular produce item"
underwent a transformation that
removed its flavor in exchange for dura-
bility and shelf-life. Although biologi-
cally a fruit, it was declared a vegetable
by the Supreme Court in 1893 in order
to protect the growers.
To grow these perfectly round if now
tasteless orbs in the winter led growers
to Florida, which Estabrook said is one
of the worst places one could choose
for such a crop because of "humidity,
insects and nutrient-deficient soil."
(Depending on which website you visit,
Florida and California seem to be the


leaders in tomato production.) What
Florida lacked in growing conditions
could be balanced by a ready crop
of migrant workers and large doses
of chemicals. Migrant workers come
cheap and in a never-ending supply.
Even today, there are many who do not
worry about the environment any more
than they worry about migrant workers
and illegal aliens.
As Estabrook divulges in his book,
what producers do worry about is the
bottom line. When one grower devel-
oped a tasty tomato, it was kept from
the market by the Florida Tomato
Committee. Two kinder producers who
offered to pay workers 1 cent more for
a pound of tomatoes were threatened
with fines.
Thanks to "Tomatoland" and the
other writers who have jumped on the
story's bandwagon, change seems to be
coming.
"There are two guys in Florida work-
ing on this," he said. "Professor Jay Scott
at the University of Florida's horticul-
tural center at Wimauma and professor
Harry Klee in Gainesville."
Estabrook said using the old-fash-
ioned breeders' way, Scott's team came
up with the Tasti-Lee brand, which was
available in Publix supermarkets this
year.
Klee is using a scientific approach,
although not genetic modification,
he said. Instead, Klee and his team
are identifying the chemicals within
tomatoes that contribute to their flavor.
Bananas and strawberries have just one
chemical each but tomatoes have 19 or


20 such chemicals, of which at least six
are critically important to the flavor, he
said.
"Klee is about halfway through,"
Estabrook said. "It will take another
four or five years. He is knocking off the
chemicals one by one and they have to
literally produce thousands of seedlings
to get one with the trait they are looking
for."
While they may never duplicate the
fresh-picked flavor of a vine-ripened
tomato from Iowa, Estabrook said what
they have so far is very creditable and
"tough enough to withstand handling
and it can be picked ripe (red)."
Estabrook said he will talk about the
tomato industry as an example of large-
scale food production when he speaks
at the high school.
"It is a lens to look at bigger issues,"
he said.
It also is a way of demonstrating what
an investigative food writer does.
Estabrook's Literacy Council of Venice
High School appearance is sponsored
by the Venice Gondolier Sun and Gulf
Coast Community Foundation. The
Thursday presentation will begin at
7 p.m. in the high school auditorium
and will be followed by a book signing.
Admission is $5 for students and $10
for adults. Tickets may be purchased in
advance at The Paper Pad, 327 W.Venice
Ave.; Venice Wine & Coffee Co., 121 W
Venice Ave.; at the high school office,
1 Indian Ave. (7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. only);
and at the door prior to 7 p.m.

'Brigadoon' magically reappears at Broadway Palm


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR
The Broadway Palm
Dinner Theatre has
a huge success on its
hands with its current
run of "Brigadoon."
According to theater
staff, almost every seat
in the house is filled for
every performance.
Performed to a near
sold-out crowd on
Friday, the magical tale
of a town that appears
only once every 100 years
holds the audience's
interest through a love
story.
Learner and Loewe's
delightful musical
score written for the
Broadway play in 1947
- drives the story. Two
men hunting in Scot-
land get lost and end


PHOTO COURTESY OF BROADWAY PALM THEATRE
Well-choreographed dancers perform a Highland fling during "Brigadoon" at Broadway Palm
Theatre through March 31.


up in Brigadoon, a town
that is so blessed that it
and its townsfolk only
magically appear once
a century. This protects
the people and the town


from ever being changed
or harmed by the outside
world. There's only one
problem: No one can
leave the town or the
magic goes away.


Hunter Tommy
Albright (Jason Fleck)
falls in love with Fiona
MacLaren (Jeannie Shu-
bitz), and the pair carry
the bulk of the romantic


music, including the
ever-popular "Almost
Like Being in Love."
Albright's friend, Jeff
Douglas (Victor Legar-
reta), plays devil's advo-
cate to Albright's lovelorn
character, talking him
out of his desire to follow
through with his promise
to marry MacLaren. If
he marries her, Douglas
reasons, he will never be
able to return to his New
York City home again.
In the end, how-
ever, love wins out and
Albright discovers he
cannot live without
MacLaren. He returns to
Brigadoon, and rather
than finding a nonexis-
tent town that went back
to sleep after its one-day
awakening, he finds he
can awaken the sleepy
town and marry his one


true love.
Adding to the ambi-
ance is a terrific set with
stone bridgework, lush
greenery and heather,
men in Scottish plaid
kilts and women in
long flowing skirts that
revealed pantaloons
when dancing. Bagpipe
music at the play's start
and throughout added
to the mood, as did the
occasional celebratory
dancing of a Highland
fling and a sword dance.
M. Seth Reines
directed the 17-mem-
ber cast; Dottie Lester
White choreographed the
theatrical production.
Musical credits go to
Loren Strickland, key-
boards and conductor,
and musicians.

Historical essays net wins for students


By JEANNE HAGENAU
SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER

The Myakka Chapter
of the National Soci-
ety of Daughters of the
American Revolution
held its annual school
award program Feb. 15
at Reformed Community
Church in Venice.
Linda Johnson, Ameri-
can history essay chair,
introduced students who
wrote winning essays
on the subject, "Young


America Takes a Stand:
the War of 1812." The
students wrote as though
they lived during the War
of 1812 and had a friend
who became famous for
standing up for America
during that dangerous
time. They included why
it is important to honor
such heroes as we cel-
ebrate the 200th anniver-
sary of the War of 1812.
Judging was based on
historical accuracy, adher-
ence to topic, organization


of material, interest, origi-
nality, spelling, grammar,
punctuation and neat-
ness. Each student read
his or her winning essay
and received a certificate,
a medal and a $100 check.
Parents and teachers
attended. The winners will
compete at the state and
national levels.
The winners were:
Elizabeth Treat, fifth
grade, Taylor Ranch
School, Venice; Anna
Bretz, sixth grade, Pine


View School, Osprey;
Emma Isabel Quintero,
seventh grade, Epiphany
Cathedral School, Venice;
and Nicholas Etz, eighth
grade, Epiphany Cathe-
dral School.
Johnson announced
that Julianna Konsulian,
11th grade, Venice High
School, won an award for
her essay entitled "Chris-
topher Columbus: In His
Own Time, in History
and Today." She received
a certificate and a check


for $100.
Medals were awarded
to two students in Junior
ROTC programs who
demonstrated loyalty and
patriotism and earned
a record of military and
scholastic achievement
during their participa-
tion in ROTC, leadership
ability and a fundamen-
tal and patriotic under-
standing of the impor-
tance of ROTC training.

Sgt. John Abbot assists.


School and the Student Lead-
ership Academy are being
trained in cardiopulmonary
resuscitation, thanks to an
American Heart Association
grant that funds the CPR
Anytime program.
Training is ongoing in other
district schools for a total
of about 400 students and
school staff members.
According to a district
news release, AHA received
funding for the project from
the Suncoast Cardiovascular


Research and Education
Foundation, founded by
Helen Harper Brown.
Suzanne Dubose, district
Wellness Coordinator, talked
about the training.
"The Sarasota County
School District's Wellness
Committee understands the
importance of initiating care
as quickly as possible during
a cardiac arrest," she said in
the release.
"We agree with the
Heart Association's


recommendations, so we
were delighted to receive the
generous grant. Our goal is
to accelerate CPR education
in our schools to help teach
students and staff how to save
lives in an emergency."
District administrators also
participated in the training,
and more employees have
scheduled training sessions.
If more CPR Anytime kits
are received, the district
may offer the training to the
community.


'Romeo and Juliet'



... in Yiddish?


By DANA SANCHEZ
ENGLEWOOD SUN EDITOR

A new Yiddish Cul-
ture Center that strives
to present programs in
English and Yiddish is
attracting residents from
Sarasota to Punta Gorda
who want to reconnect
with a language of their
youth, a language once
thought to be in danger
of extinction.
The Yiddish Culture
Center meets at 2 p.m.
the first Sunday of each
month at the Jewish
Congregation of Ven-
ice, headed up by Baila
Miller, daughter of Polish
and Russian Holocaust
survivors.
Miller, who learned
Yiddish as her first
language and now owns
Miller Music and Fine
Arts LLC in Venice, deliv-
ers a series of lectures at
area libraries, assisted-
living facilities and
universities.
Helping her in the Yid-
dish Culture Center are
fellowYiddish speakers
Chaya Perera, who has
a degree in teaching
Hebrew and Yiddish, and
Pauline White.
Reviving interest in
Yiddish as a spoken lan-
guage is the goal of the
Yiddish Culture Center,
Miller said.
The audience at the
first-ever meeting was a
mixed bunch of curious
Yiddish and non-Yiddish
speakers who came to
hear Miller speak on
"Dispelling Judaism's Art-
less Tradition."
For centuries, Judaism
was perceived as artless
due to the Torah's pro-
hibition against graven
images, Miller told a
group of about 40 people
in English and Yiddish.
With the changing Jew-
ish world of the 1800s,
Jewish artists such as
Marc Chagall bucked the
prohibition.
Yiddish goes back 1,000
years. It was born in one
bloodbath and died in
another, Miller said.
Happily, there's been
a revival of Yiddish,
and young people are
expressing an interest in
it, Miller said.
"You ain't heard noth-
ing yet till you've heard
'The Cat in the Hat' in


Yiddish,"
Miller said.
Several "
audience
members t .
said they
grew up
with parents
who spoke MILLER
Yiddish, but
their parents wanted the
kids to grow up "Ameri-
can," so they wouldn't
speak Yiddish in front of
the children.
"We'd like to bring
back what was and make
people aware of what
their heritage is," Perera
said.
She helps run aYid-
dish Speaking Club and,
out of that, the Yiddish
Culture Center was born,
she said.
Outside Orthodox Jew-
ish communities, Yiddish
is dying out, according
to Rabbi Sholom Sch-
merling with Chabad of
North Port and Venice.
"Programs like this
draw (non-Orthodox
Jews) and remind them of
their earlier life," he said.
"It's really very enjoyable
to interact in Yiddish."
Schmerling, who
speaks Yiddish with his
children, said Hebrew
and Yiddish are vastly
different. With the cre-
ation of Israel, language
shifted from Yiddish to

I GOREN BRIDGE
WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 North-South vulnerable, as
South you hold:

A84 K A K 9 0 K 76AKJ 1065

Your right-hand opponent opens one
spade. What action do you take?

A No club bid will suggest to
partner that you have such a powerful
holding. Despite the single-suited
nature of your hand, start with a
takeout double, then bid your suit at
your next turn.

Q 2 Vulnerable, as South you hold:

6KJ5 Q87 0AKJ6 6AJ9

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

A Since partner might have only
four hearts, a raise of his suit is out of
order. That leaves three no trump as
the only viable alternative. While that
might fare poorly if partner has
nothing, West's pass suggests partner
might have some help.

Q 3 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:


6J8K Q984


A9 6Q873


The bidding has proceeded:
WEST NORTH EAST SOUTH
10 Dbl 20 ?
What do you bid now?

A Partner would love to hear that
you have a four-card major-suit and
some values. Bid two hearts -
notrump can come later depending
on how the auction develops.

Q 4 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

The bidding has proceeded:
WEST NORTH EAST SOUTH
10 Dbl 30 ?

A You want to play game in
partner's better major suit. The way
to tell him that is to cue-bid four
diamonds. Doubling the opponents
can come later should they compete.

Q 5 As South vulnerable, you hold:

4 A95 K QJ 10 6 5 9 8 5 4 Void

The bidding has proceeded:
WEST NORTH EAST SOUTH
14 Pass 34 32
3A Pass 44 Pass
64 Pass Pass ?
What action do you take?

A Double! That is not a penalty
double in the true sense it is lead-
directing, asking partner to lead
dummy's first-bid suit. You will ruff
that and score at least the ace of
trumps for a one-trick set.

Q 6 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

4 QJ9 A QJ 9 7 6 8 3 465

The bidding has proceeded:
WEST NORTH EAST SOUTH
14 Pass 34 30
34 Pass 44 Pass
6A Pass Pass ?
What action do you take?

A Don't double! From the above
problem you know that would ask for
a club lead, and your heart trick
might vanish. If you can bank your
ace of hearts, you might well score a
trump trick, so pass and let partner
lead your suit.

Happy Leap

Day

n honor of this special day which occurs only in years
divisible by four, Walt Disney World will stay open all day -
and all night for a total of 24 hours, although I guess if you
add in the first five hours of the next day, it would add up to
29 hours.
Some stores are offering 20 percent discounts on some items
and some resorts and hotels around the globe are offering room
upgrades for $29 and/or 29 percent discounts on package deals.
In Venice, for whatever reason, the Gentlemen of Jazz are not on
the city calendar today even though they normally perform
every Wednesday at 3 p.m.
March 1, Slim and Friends will continue the group's free weekly
concert at 3 p.m. at the Gazebo.
This evening, at 7 p.m. investigative food writer
Barry Estabrook will be the featured speaker for this year's
high school Literacy Week celebration. Tickets are $10 for
adults and $5 for students. After the talk, Estabrook will sign
copies of his book, "Tomatoland," If you have ever wondered why
even the most expensive super market tomatoes don't seem to
taste as good as the ones you remember from you days in Ohio or
Iowa, Estabrook has the answers and better yet, at least two solu-
tions are in the offing.
This coming weekend is the annual downtown Venice
Art Classic, Tents will be open Saturday and Sunday from
10 a.m. to 5 p.m. On Sunday, you are likely to find some
stores open that are not normally open that day.
Sadly, not every store will open.

Strawberry Festival opens Thursday


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Think State Fair with an emphasis on
strawberries.
That is the secret to the success of
Florida's annual Strawberry Festival at Plant City.
As you can at the fair, you can purchase funnel
cakes but why would you when you can make
your own strawberry shortcakes and in most
any size.
Instead of going home with a pint of fresh-
picked berries, buy them by the case. Amazing
how many festival visitors do just that.
In addition to over-dosing on strawberries and
all the things that can be made with those lus-
cious berries, festival goers can also OD on free
entertainment ranging from a karaoke contest
on Thursday to The Walker Brothers Bluegrass
& Acoustic Music Show several times daily from
march 2-11 and daily performances by Dennis
Lee and the Jay Taylor Band. These performers
will be in the Sweet Bay entertainment tent. There
will be additional entertainment in the Borden

Socks For Kids


Project Sock Hop


BY MARIE MERCHANT
ENTERTAINMENT EDITOR
Roll up your sleeves and put on your poodle
skirts and bobby socks and dance to the
music of The BoogieMen at the Socks For
Kids Project Sock Hop Saturday at the Cultural
Center.
With three schools in Charlotte County receiv-
ing over 80-percent free or reduced lunch, there
is a need in the community
"I called around to several schools and school
nurses. They tend to know the needs," said Co-
Chairman of the Socks For Kids Project Larry
Taylor. "And they said 'Socks. Socks. Socks'
They said so many kids don't have socks
therefore they can't participate in PRE"
The project distributes the socks to area
schools through the school nurses. "They have a
handle on the pulse of need probably more than
anybody else when it comes to the kids. They
know where the needs are. They are on the front
lines."
Socks of all sizes are needed. White athletic
socks are preferred which will allow the students
to participate in physical education classes.
The Punta Gorda Kiwanis Club is now it its
second year of helping the children of Charlotte
County by providing socks.
"The Kiwanis club is doing a fabulous, out-
standing job of collecting shoes for kids, but the
kids are wearing the shoes without socks and
wearing them out faster," said Taylor.
"We hope to collect some socks (at the show),
but also to make money to buy even more socks
and I hope to be able to get 6,000 to 8,000 pairs

Frankie Valli & The Four


Seasons in concert


PROVIDED BY MELANIE MARTIN
THE VAN WEZEL PERFORMING ARTS HALL
Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons return to
the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall at 8
p.m. today.
Valli, who came to fame in 1962 as the lead
singer of the Four Seasons, is hotter than ever
in the 21st century Thanks to the volcanic suc-
cess of the Tony-winning musical "Jersey Boys."
Valli is saluting the decade that made him a
star with his first new studio album in 15 years.
In "Romancing The '60s," he put his own stamp
on some of his favorite '60s songs, the ones he
always wanted to record but somehow got
away. Produced by Bob Gaudio, an original
member of the Four Seasons and Frankie's
long-time partner, the set includes unforget-
table new versions of such gems as "Spanish-
Harlem," "Call Me" and "Take Good Care of My
Baby"
The majority of the 71 chart hits of Frankie Valli
and the Four Seasons came during the'60s, but
the music didn't just disappear. His songs have
been omnipresent in movies like "Dirty Dancing,"
"Mrs. Doubtfire" and "Conspiracy Theory," and on
TV shows like "The Sopranos."
As many as 200 artists have done cover ver-
sions of Vallie's "Can't Take My Eyes Off You," from


'Going

Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons return to the

Take a leap: The sky is th


BY JON BAUMANN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Most people would think that you're crazy
if you told them that you jumped out of
an airplane that was 10,000 feet in the
air without a parachute on your back and lived to
tell about it. Crazy maybe, but something thou-
sands of people can actually say. Of course, they
had a little help from SW Florida Skydive Club,
based at Shell Creek Airport in Punta Gorda.
It's called tandem jumping, where two people
jump out of a plane, one the customer and the
other a certified skydiving instructor, attached by
a harness to the parachute system.The instructor
is a jump master, a personal coach if you will,
who can do it all while you just ride along with
the earth hurtling toward you or you can pull the
parachute cord and steer the parachute yourself
under the watchful eye of your coach if you wish.
"I tell most people the only hard part of skydiv-
ing is the ground,' said jump master Roy Tor-
geirson, who has performed over 3,500 tandem
jumps for Skydive Southwest Florida.
There is about an hour of ground time before
the jump takes place, including the training,
practicing and the gearing up. "Dress like you're
going jogging. We don't want tight clothing to
restrict a person's ability to be in a good arch
position during the freefall,"Torgeirson explained.
The club will provide a skydiving jumpsuit for the
big event, which typically starts with a 15 minute
plane ride to the desired height, then comes the
moment of truth.
"When the plane door opens, that's when
reality hits," Torgeirson said. "Nobody's going to
force anybody to do anything they don't want,"


SUN FILE PHOTO

adding that of the 3,500 tandem jumps he's been
involved with, only a handful have decided not to
take the plunge when that door does open.
Once out of the plane it's a one minute freefall
at speeds up to 120 miles per hour before chute
deployment and a leisurely five to seven minute
ride to earth.
The whole experience can be video recorded
using a hand cam attached to the instructor
with another HD video camera on the ground to
capture the landing. The cost ranges from $80
to $100 for a DVD, CD photos, online video or a
combination of the three.
You must be at least 18 years of age, weigh
less than 230 pounds and be in good physical
condition to participate. Out of a thousand tan-
dem jumpers, around 150 will return for a second

John McDermott in concert


PROVIDED BY THE CHARLOTTE HARBOR
EVENT & CONFERENCE CENTER
John McDermott will be in concert at 8 p.m.
Monday at the Charlotte Harbor Event &
Conference Center.
"Legend" is not a title John McDermott would
readily embrace, but his accomplishments have
become legendary in recording industry lore.
McDermott was discovered quite by chance,
when working as a circulation sales represen-
tative for the Toronto Sun, he belted out an
impromptu rendition of "Danny Boy" at a company
party. His first album, "Danny Boy," was originally
recorded as a very private and personal 50th an-
niversary tribute for his parents. Its quality could
not be ignored and it eventually found its way into


the hands of EMI Music Canada.
"Danny Boy" subsequently garnered strong
sales for a debut release in the U.S. and Canada;
it reached number one on New Zealand's album
charts, and was certified double platinum in that
country.
This success, in addition to a fast growing
North American fan base, won through a tireless
touring schedule, led to his participation in the
PBS phenomenon, The Irish Tenors.
He is a recipient of one the United State's
highest honors the Congressional Medal of
Honor Society's "Bob Hope Award". Recently
in 2010, he received a commendation from the
Minister of Veteran's Affairs for his work with
veterans including his foundation McDermott


House Canada, which is committed to creating
an improved quality of care in the final stages of
a terminal illness, coupled with a warm, welcom-
ing place to stay in Canada for veterans, military,
first responders and their families.
It is with this 'spirit' he recorded his current CD
entitled "Journeys," which tells the story of our
Canadian heroes. This moving album has songs
such as 'The Dreamer" and "The Gift of Years"
and the emotional'Bringing Buddy Home" which
has been played on radio in the U.S. and Canada in
tribute to the fallen. The track'The Dreamer" is dedi-
cated to longtime friend Sen. Edward Kennedy at
whose memorial service McDermott was honored
to perform at the request of the family in 2009.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of

Barbary Coast band brings Dixieland


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
The Barbary Coast Dixieland Band returns to

Band members got together in 1967 while dis-
cussing the reopening of a restaurant in St. Paul.
Since 1984, the six musicians who make up the
band began performing in worship services but
always with an audience of toe-tapping fans.
They perform at 40 or more Sunday services
annually in addition to concerts. In their red vests
they have been featured on Mississippi paddle-
wheelers and performed at several jazz festivals in
such places as Montana, Iowa, Illinois, Ohio
and Washington and as far away as Japan. In
2001 the band was elected to the Minnesota
Music Hall of Fame. The six musicians in the band
play a total of 18 instruments. Band members


include left-handed leader Dick Petersen on banjo
and guitar; Tom Andrews on drums, clarinet and
vocals; Jim Bensel on trombone, cornet, drums and vo-
cals; Russ Peterson on trumpet, trombone, sax, clarinet,
flute, bass and vocals; Steve Pikal on bass, trombone
and piano and Dick Ramburg on piano and clarinet.
In Venice, they will perform at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Saturday in the sanctuary of Venice Presbyterian
Church, 111 Firenze, at the corner of Firenze
Avenue and the Rialto, two blocks south of Venice
Regional Medical Center.Tickets are $10 per
person and may be purchased by phone at 941-
488-5525 or online at www.venicepresbyterian.

Spring training is laid-back fun in the sun


BY MITCH STACY
ASSOCIATED PRESS
Major league baseball teams started com-
ing to Florida for spring training almost
a century ago, traveling by rail from the
often still-frozen North to get in shape and play
some exhibition games in the sun.The weather is
almost always sunny and warm, the ballparks are
cozier than regular stadiums, beer and hot dogs
are cheaper) and everything parking, tailgat-
ing, finding your seats, standing in line for food
- is just more laid-back. Many of the seats are
so close that fans can hear the on-field chatter.
Players haven't become mired in slumps or losing
streaks yet, so most of them don't mind stopping
for autographs.
"It's very intimate compared to going to a big
stadium,' says Julie Baldwin, who lives in subur-
ban Washington D.C. and has come down with
her family to root for the Boston Red Sox in some
spring games. "Your parking is right there. It's just
easy, everything is so much on a smaller scale
and not so daunting."
Much to the delight of Tampa Bay Rays fans,
the team plays its spring games in a terrific
refurbished ball park. The 6,923-seat Charlotte
Sports Park has become a fan favorite on the
Grapefruit League circuit since the Rays moved
in three years ago.
In 2012, 15 teams will train beneath the palm
trees in central and south Florida, playing a slate
of 236 Grapefruit League games throughout
March. (The other 15 teams play their preseason
games in the Cactus League in Arizona.) For
veteran players, it's a chance to shake out the
cobwebs, while rookies and journeymen compete
to be one of the 25 guys left standing when the

Tribute shows wrap up Venice Theatre's winter


concert series


PROVIDED BY THE VENICE THEATRE

The Venice Theatre presents its two final
concerts of the winter season."Let's Hang On"
performs their high-energy tribute to Frankie Valli
and the Four Seasons at 8 p.m. Sunday and at 3
p.m. and 8 p.m. Monday.
"The Ultimate Blues Brothers Review" brings
their popular act to the area at 8 p.m. March 11
and at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. March 12.
Venice Theatre's producing director, Allan Kol-
lar, is looking forward to presenting both of these
acts, each new to Venice Theatre. "With the popu-
larity of "Jersey Boys," I was looking for a quality
tribute to Frankie Valli's music for our patrons.


'Let's Hang On' is by far the best I could find.
They've got 10 people in the group all together.
Their harmonies are great and the choreography
for the show is fantastic."
When it comes to Blues Brothers tribute
bands, there are plenty out there. Kollar chose
the best he could find from the Chicago area
and made sure that an authentic blues band
was part of the act. Wink Warren and Dave
Martin bring Jake and Elwood Blues to life in
a "flame-throwin"' blues show complete with
a six-piece band and female vocalist named
Sister Aretha.
Voted the "Official Blues Brothers" of the
Chicago Bears Fan Club, Warren and Martin


rocked Soldier Field for six years before taking
their act to the rest of the world.
Tickets for "Let's Hang On" are $30. All seats
for the Blues Brothers tribute are $25. Tickets
are available by calling 941-488-1115 or www.
venicestage.com.
Venice Theatre is located at 140 W.Tampa
Ave., Venice.

ing of life are probed in this 1983 Pulitzer Prize
winning play about an unusual mother-daughter
relationship.
"Night Mother" makes a disturbing statement
about responsibility and courage.

Quartet in concert


PROVIDED BY THE BURNT STORE
PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH
The My Three Sons Quartet of the Ditchfield
Family Singers will be in concert at 7 p.m.
Friday at the Burnt Store Presbyterian
Church.
Stephen Ditchfield and his three sons,
Nathanael, Michael and David, were all singing
together as a part of the well-known Ditchfield
Family Singers when they discovered their
potential as a quartet. After winning the Novice
competition, My Three Sons were invited to sing
at the Barbershop Society's International Conven-
tion. In 2003, this father and his three sons made
barbershop quartet history when they became


Florida statewide champions.
They are the first father and son group to do
so since the Barbershop Harmony Society was
founded in 1938.
In addition to traditional barbershop songs, the
quartet perform a variety of popular music from
the '30s, '40s, and '50s, the hits of Broadway
and the best-loved traditional and inspirational
standards of our time.
The concert is free and a love offering will be
taken. There are no reserved seats, open seating
only

Charlotte Symphony to feature Scandinavian classics, American youth


PROVIDED BY THE CHARLOTTE SYMPHONY

The classical Scandinavian composers
Jean Sebelius and Edvard Grieg have
long charmed the universe of music.The
Charlotte Symphony Orchestra's "Scandinavian
Night" performance at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the
Charlotte Performing Arts Center, 701 Carmalita
St., Punta Gorda will feature music by both
composers.
Especially exciting will be soloist Alex Beyer, a
17-year-old piano prodigy who is a student ofYo-
shie Akimoto, as was Umi Garrett, the pint-sized,
10-year-old pianist sensation who brought the
CSO audience to its feet last year for a prolonged
standing ovation.
Beyer will perform the piece that made
Norway's Grieg famous, his only concerto, "Piano
Concerto in A Minor," described by CSO principal
oboist and music commentator Katherine
Caldwell as "fiery, virtuosic flourishes up and


down the keyboard."
It's "a favorite with audiences worldwide,"
Caldwell said. "From the unforgettable dramatic
opening cadenza to the sweeping grand final
chords, the concerto is filled with majesty, tender-
ness and sparkle that will bring you joy."
Beyer began playing at age 4, currently is
enrolled at Julliard, was the first teenage artist-in-
residence with the Killington, Vermont Symphony
Orchestra, has also soloed with symphony
orchestras in Connecticut, Maine and Milwaukee,
has performed in Luxemburg and Germany and
was recently nominated as a Presidential Scholar
in the Arts.
Beyer and Grieg, however, will have to share
the concert spotlight with the "emotion and drama
that dominate the music" of Jean Sebelius.
Among the pieces the orchestra will play,
under the direction of Maestro T Francis Wada,
will be "Finlandia," for which Sebelius was not
only recognized as Finland's greatest compos-

'Barefoot in the Park'


BY CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Director Marion Barnes describes the
Lemon Bay Playhouse production of Neil
Simon's "Barefoot in the Park" as "clean
and lighthearted."The original Broadway produc-
tion took place in 1963 with Robert Redford as
Paul. Redford went on to star in the 1967 move
version with Jane Fonda who replaced Elizabeth
Ashley as Corie.
In the Lemon Bay Playhouse production
Michael Hilton stars as Paul Bratter, a stuffy, seri-
ous young lawyer and Mariah Phillips plays his
exuberant, fun-loving bride, Corie. When the new-
lyweds move into a cramped, fifth floor Greenwich
Village Brownstone apartment, their relationship
begins to fall apart. They must deal with a host of
troubles including a failed heating system, a hole
in the skylight, and an oddball neighbor played by
Bob LaSalle. Ann Hanushek, as Corie's conser-
vative mother, and Gary Craig as a telephone
repairman, complete the cast. "Every role is a
great role,' explains Marion who, along with her
assistant director husband, Ralph, directs one
play a season at the Lemon Bay Playhouse.
Hilton sees himself in Bratter because the
"character has a sarcastic sense of humor." Hilton
usually works in plays from "the other side of
the curtain' After moving from Michigan where
he was the West Michigan Symphony's stage
manager, Hilton joined the Venice Theater Tech
TTAP Program. He auditioned for the part of
Bratter because he wished to gain some acting
experience and get a better understanding of the
pressures faced by actors on stage.
Phillips, a Florida native and gymnast, began
acting in sixth grade and plans to pursue an
acting career. After graduating with a Bach-
elors degree in theater from Florida Gulf Coast
University she auditioned and received a lead
role in "Absurd Person Singular" at the Lemon
Bay Playhouse. After "Barefoot" Phillips plans to
complete a masters' degree in theater.
Bob LaSalle performs as Victor Valasko, the
couple's zany Hungarian neighbor. It's a perfect
role for LaSalle who loves portraying characters
with accents. In addition to acting in plays over
the years, LaSalle is the group's Technical Direc-
tor, a position he has held since 2003.
Gary Craig, as the telephone repairman,
plays it "straight." He acts as a real person who
becomes an unwilling observer to the couple's
ridiculous marital dilemma. Craig's role provides
comic relief similar to his role last season as
the "dead guy" and an auto mechanic in "Dearly
Departed" at the Lemon Bay Playhouse.
Ann Hanushek joined the Lemon Bay
Playhouse in 2005 and has acted in six plays-
comedies as well as dramas. Each role has been
entirely different, and Hanusheck is often not
recognized by her friends when she's portraying
a character on stage. In "Barefoot" she plays a
straight-laced mother whose headstrong daughter

neighbor who lives in the attic above the

Elks on a mission offer hope to military families


BY CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Eleven South Southwest Florida District
Elks Lodges are hosting a picnic, and they
are inviting the public to join in the fun.
Jeff Smith represents the Rotonda Elks Lodge
where the Army of Hope Picnic will take place on
Sunday.
Since 2008 picnics and other fundraising
events have been sponsored by Elks Lodges
across Florida, providing aid to Florida families of
deceased, disabled, and deployed members of
the military who are in need of assistance.
"It is the first time and quite an honor that the
Rotonda Lodge has been chosen to host this
annual picnic," Smith explained. Smith will direct
the fun and games portion of the event, and Co-
Chairman Kay Neilley from the Deep Creek Elks
Lodge will take charge of more formal matters,
a flag ceremony at noon and the reading of the
names of deceased military personnel from the
SSWFL area.
The Army of Hope Picnic will be a carnival-
type family attraction. There will be no admis-
sion charge or parking fee. Families will enjoy a
fun-filled afternoon of free music, K-9 demonstra-
tions, midway games, pony rides, snow cones,
cotton candy and balloons. The Rotonda and the
Bonita Springs Elks Lodges will sell beverages
and hand-cut fries. Other lodges providing food
for sale will be Deep Creek (barbeque ribs)
N. Fort Myers (hamburgers/hot dogs) Port Char-


lotte (sausages/peppers) Punta Gorda (funnel
cakes) Cape Coral (root beer floats) Englewood/
Naples (coleslaw/baked beans). One hundred
percent of the proceeds from the sale of food and
beverages and a 50/50 raffle will be donated to
eligible SSWFL military families.
Catherine Burner, lodge esquire of the
Rotonda Elks, called the Army of Hope event a
"Really big deal." She explained that the Elks help
seriously maimed and injured Veterans return to
society and daily life activities by paying for medi-
cal equipment not covered by insurance.
The Elks aid people that have lost a family
member serving in Iraq or Afghanistan, and they
offer temporary financial assistance to those
in need if the military member of the family is
deployed.
In 2009, for example, the Army of Hope
brought dependent children to their Florida Elks
Youth Camp for the last week of the camping sea-
son. Other examples of aid assistance include:
school lunches, clothing, medical emergencies,
babysitters, phone cards, and home or auto
repairs.
Families of Florida active duty military person-
nel, military reservists, Coast Guard, National
Guard and/or their dependents may be eligible for
receiving aid by submitting a completed request
form to their local SSWFL Elks Lodge.
Since 2007 The Florida Army of Hope has
distributed over $170,000 to families of deployed
service men and women. Receiving this assis-


Catherine Burner and Jeff Smith invite the public to the "Army of Hope" picnic being held on
Sunday at the Rotonda Elks Lodge.


tance enables the military member to concentrate
on his or her duties without having to worry about
family finances at home. Finally, when Veterans
return home, the Army of Hope helps them adapt
to civilian life.


The Army of Hope Picnic begins at noon and
lasts until 5 p.m. Sunday at the Rotonda Elks
Lodge, 313 Rotonda Boulevard E., Rotonda.

Village Fish Market


BY BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The Village Fish Market is one restaurant
that goes out of its way to make sure it truly
offers something for everyone. The New
England-style seafood restaurant in Fishermen's
Village has a menu that's packed with every kind
of seafood a customer could want, as well as
steaks, chicken, burgers, salads and sides.
Red hearts throughout the menu indicate heart
healthy dishes developed with the guidance of
Charlotte Regional Medical Center. Diners also
have their choice of lunch (smaller) or dinner
(larger) sized portions all day.
"Fish and chips is our biggest seller, along
with lobster salad on a New England roll, Ipswich
clams, and New England clam chowder," said
owner Sue Randal.
In addition to their regular and children's
menus, Village Fish Market also developed
gluten-free, low-carb, low-calorie and low-fat
menus.
'We realized that people have many different
dietary needs, and we want to support them and
offer them food that fits their diets," explained
Randall.
Developing the gluten-free menu was challeng-
ing, said Randall, because every ingredient in
every dish had to be examined and researched to
see if it contained gluten. "It was worth the effort
though, because more and more people need or
prefer gluten-free dishes," said Randall.
Just as important to Randall are the things you
won't find on any of their menus. No charge for


plate sharing. No automatic gratuities for larger
parties. No problem with separate checks.
"I never liked those rules and charges at other
restaurants, so I won't do that here," said Randall.
"Many people are on fixed budgets, and they
should still be able to go out to eat. And some
people just don't eat that much, so why can't they
share a meal?"
Attitudes like these, along with high quality
food and service and their waterfront view, have
earned Village Fish Market the Charlotte Sun
Reader's Choice Best Seafood Restaurant award
several times, including the most recent 2011
award.
Randall and her husband Nick moved to the
area from England in 2003 and bought the res-
taurant. They had been searching among towns
along Florida's gulf coast, sorting through stacks
of information about various locales. Punta
Gorda kept rising to the top, said Randall.
Village Fish Market has grown steadily through
the years. In 2008 they remodeled, doubling
the restaurant's size and adding several raised,
step-up seating areas. When parties come in,
they can be seated there and feel as if they have
their own room.They also opened up the wall to
expand their waterfront view so more diners can
enjoy it.
The Village Fish Market is located at the center
court of Fisherman's Village, Retta Esplanade,
Punta Gorda. They are open seven days each
week: 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays-Thursdays and
Saturday, until 9 p.m. Friday and 11:30 a.m. to
7 p.m. Sunday. For information call 941-639-7959.

'Fish Faces' The latest children's book by Camille Blue Amy


BY JON BAUMANN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The latest work by Punta Gorda resident
Camille Blue Amy is a collaboration with
Port Charlotte resident Dr. Brian Ardel,
combining Ardel's beautiful underwater fish pho-
tography with Amy's rhyming prose in an effort to
enchant children of all ages about the wonders
of sea life in the book "Fish Faces"' "We needed
to make it so the kids would love to look at the
pictures and read a little bit, so I had the opposite
pages rhyme with each other," Amy explained.
This is the second effort by Amy, known by her
nickname Mickey to close friends and relatives.
The first was the well received children's book
"Marshall and His Green High-Tops,' the story
of a mouse with a desire for the material things
in life, in this case sneakers. Marshall thinks the
high tops will make him a better baseball player.
The story, illustrated by the award-winning Lorena
Pugh, turns out to be a lesson about life for Mar-
shall, an enchanting learning experience for the
children who read the book, and a wonderful gift


from the parents who purchase it. To date, over
1,200 copies of "Marshall" have been sold.
Currently in her mid-'70s, Amy started her writ-
ing career at 71. "I just try to learn new stuff all
the time"' she said, "I think even if you're retired,
it's really fun to learn new things and writing
books has been, really a new learning experi-
ence"' If anyone wanted to write an interesting
adventure book, Amy's own life experiences
would make for a best seller. Born in Paducah,
Ky., Amy showed a love for music, hosting a radio
show while in high school and studying classi-
cal music at Murray State, but what she really
wanted to be was an architectural engineer.
"In the middle '50s, girls were having a hard
time getting into that field. They were looking for
people to come to Alaska because there was
work available," Amy explained. "It was something
I wanted to try so my dad put me on a plane and
off I went. My parents made me feel that I could
do anything I wanted to'"
Amy stayed there for four years, working with
Alaskan governmental official William Boardman


to develop a ferry system that allowed people to
travel to Alaska from the lower 48 states. While
there, she put her love for music to good use by
singing in a jazz trio. It's that type of adventur-
ous spirit that defines Amy as the person she is.
She's owned art galleries in Texas, Canada and
Florida, been accepted into the University of Miami's
architectural studies program at the age of 67,
and currently twitters, maintains her own
website, and just recently began blogging on a regu-
lar basis. Her list of accomplishments in life is as im-
pressive as the talents she possesses. Throughout
it all, it has been the support of her husband, John,
who has had an impressive medical career himself
that brings a smile to Amy's face."Jack has been
always behind me, encouraging me, letting me do
all these things,' Amy said. Together the couple, who
have three children and two grandsons, are avid
sailors who spend their summers at their cottage in
Portland, Ontario.
As for what the future holds, more books are on
the horizon for this woman of incredible energy.
"I have a series of ideas for Marshall and a lot

Simply Yum Yum Bakery


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
When you walk in the door of the Simply
YumYum Bakery in Englewood, the
sweet aroma of baked goods immedi-
ately hits you.Then you see the rows and shelves
full of pastries and pies and any remaining
willpower you may have is lost.
The creators of those delicious smells, owners
Cecile Harrington and her husband Kevin have

been in the business of baking for more than two
decades. "We owned a bakery in Massachusetts
for 10 years,' said Cecile. "Before that we worked
in theYumYum Bakery there for 20 years."
Cecile said that if you were a fan of theYum
Yum Bakery in Massachusetts before it closed
in 1991, you will love her bakery. "We still use
all the same recipes and everything,' she said.
"Everybody goes crazy for our blueberry muffins
and cinnamon raisin crimp bread." She added
that their white crimp bread is also very popular.
For those who are not familiar, crimp bread
is made in a special pan that gives it a crust all
the way around the loaf. Crimping seals in the
moisture and flavor.
Though she has been a successful baker
for quite some time now, Cecile didn't always
specialize in that style of cooking. "I was a regular
chef," she said. "My husband and I both went to
vocational culinary school. But now we've had
this bakery for seven years."
At SimplyYumYum, pastries are not the only
attraction. The bakery has also become known
as a destination for fresh cakes and pies, and as
many of our transplants from larger cities have
learned, there is no substitute for a good bakery.
"We do everything from scratch here,' she said.
"We use no preservatives."
Cecile and her husband have two adult
children and three grandchildren. The bakery
is staffed with just the two of them and one as-
sistant.
For the most part, people have been finding


Cases of delicious baked goods are lined up at Simply Yum Yum Bakery.


out about the bakery by word of mouth, and
based on the amount of customers filing in all day
long, that seems to be working very well for the
Harringtons.
The bakery is open six days a week, from
7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday and from


7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
SimplyYumYum Bakery is located Ia
1809 Englewood Road, in the Lerr,:n Bay FPala

Is a vegetarian diet

healthy for 9-year-old?


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
My 9-year-old grand-
daughter became a veg-
etarian more than a year
ago, and she has stuck to
her guns. Her mother lives
a harried life and doesn't
have much time to cook
from scratch. My grand-
daughter consumes pasta
and vegetarian frozen
items. She eats cheese and
eggs. However, I am con-
cerned that there is not
enough nutritional bal-
ance in her diet. Does she
need vitamin and mineral
supplements? E.D.
ANSWER: A vegetar-
ian diet is a healthy diet,
and most of the world is
on such a diet. However,
those people have had
generations of experi-
ence with such a diet and
know that such a diet
has to be varied. I believe
it's too much to ask of a
9-year-old to balance a
vegetarian diet. She could
be shortchanging herself
on protein, vitamin B-12,
vitamin D and calcium.
Dairy products are the
primary source of cal-
cium. It's good that she
eats cheese. How about
milk? She needs more
than cheese in her diet to
get enough calcium. Her
bones are growing, and she
is at the age where she can
store calcium in them. She
also needs vitamin D to
facilitate calcium absorp-
tion. Given that sunlight
converts a skin compound
into vitamin D, if she lives
in a Northern climate, she's
not getting enough sun
year-round for this conver-
sion to take place. Fortified
dairy products also are a
source of vitamin D. So is
orange juice.
Eggs are a good source
of protein. Beans, lentils,
peas and nuts are other
good sources. Meat is the
only food with sufficient
vitamin B-12. Some cereals
and soymilk are fortified
with it. This needs checking
to make sure she's getting
enough of this vitamin.
I understand that your
daughter leads a harried
life. If her daughter remains
on this diet, then she has
a responsibility of taking
instructions from a dieti-
tian in how best to devise
a vegetarian diet for such a
young, growing child.
A good source on the In-
teret is the Vegetarian Food
Pyramid devised by Loma
Linda University. You, your
daughter and your grand-
daughter will find it at www.
vegetariannutrition.org.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
My wife sleeps for seven or
eight hours without having
to get up. I, on the other
hand, require bladder relief
every two hours. I try to

Donohue at -

be as quiet as possible. On
occasion, I disrupt her. She
returns to a deep sleep very
quickly. She feels that inter-
rupted sleep doesn't give her
proper rest. I feel that the to-
tal time we are in REM sleep
is the important issue, not
that it must be continuous.
Will you comment? K.H.
ANSWER: The two
divisions of sleep are REM
(rapid eye movement)
sleep and NREM (non-rap-
id eye movement sleep).
NREM sleep is subdivided
into three stages (some
say four). After the onset
of sleep, NREM sleep sets
in. In the second hour of
sleep, REM sleep takes
over. During this stage
the eyes are moving, and
sleep is lighter. Dreams
occur in all sleep stages,
but REM dreams are the
dreams people remember.
Sleep experts have found
that sleep interruptions
during REM sleep have no
effects on health or on the
refreshing power of sleep.
Interruptions of NREM
sleep do produce daytime
sleepiness. Is your wife
sleepy during the day?
And equally important,
have you consulted a doc-
tor about your nighttime
trips to the bathroom?
Medicines often can solve
that problem by relaxing
and downsizing the pros-
tate gland. If medicines
don't work, surgical proce-
dures are available, some
of which can be done in
the doctor's office.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I am interested in your
opinion on the supple-
ment resveratrol. D.P.
ANSWER: Resveratrol
is a natural compound
found in grapes and
grape skins. Cranberries,
blueberries and peanuts
have it, too. Some believe
it is the substance in wine
that give wine its healthy
properties. Red wine has
more than white wine. It's
proposed as the material
that prevents heart dis-
ease and prolongs life.
No one, however, has
certain proof that resve-
ratrol is what gives these
foods their healthful prop-
erties. It might be some
other natural and as-yet-
unidentified chemical.
I'm not on the trail of
resveratrol until I see more
compelling evidence. I'm
not against it, either.

Bountiful buckeyes


Dear Readers: Wow, the
recent column about buck-
eye nuts was a hit! Here are
just a few letters received:
Carol J. in Hazleton, Pa.,
wrote: "I've been reading
your column for years, but
have never written until
now. I lived in the Sierra
Foothills for a while, where
buckeyes are wild and plen-
tiful. I baked them in the
microwave after putting a
hole in the top and bottom
with a nail. When they were
cool and dry, I put my drap-
ery cord through and tied a
knot. They were wonderful
drapery-cord pulls, and felt
so good in my hand."
Donna E., via email,
said: "Did you bring back
some very nice memories
and answer an age-old
question! Buckeyes are for
luck! My father's mother
always kept one in her
jewelry box, and it always
seemed 'polished.' Every
time anyone opened the
box, they invariably picked
up the buckeye nut and
rubbed it, thus polishing it
with the oil on their fingers.
My parents also kept one
in our adhesive-strip box
(remember the old, metal
ones?). Thanks for featuring
it in your column!"
Elinor A. in Red Oak,
Iowa, wrote: "We lived in
Iowa when I was grow-
ing up, and there was a
big buckeye tree in the
front yard. It was the only
one in town. Every sum-

to pick up the ripe buck-

Chocolate dipping
Dear Heloise: This past
holiday, I made chocolate-
covered pretzels. The biggest
problem was figuring out
how to dip the pretzels and
remove them without mak-
ing a huge mess. I used my
potato masher. I would put
a couple of large pretzels on
the masher and then dip it
in the chocolate. I removed
them and set them on a
sheet of foil. Worked great!
-Annie E, via email

Cookie decorating
Dear Heloise: My grand-
daughter and I were baking
sugar cookies. To keep
the mess to a minimum,
I would place the cookie
cutter over each cookie
before she sprinkled it with
colored sugar. Most of the
sugar stayed within the
cutout, and I didn't have
sugar to clean up. Then we
baked the cookies, which
were delicious! Frankie

Student is shocked to spy

professor's feet of clay


DEAR ABBY: I am a
19-year-old student tak-
ing courses at a commu-
nity college. One of my
classes is taught by a great
professor who also works
at a state college teaching
other teachers.
After an evening class
with him one night, I
returned to the classroom
because I forgot some-
thing and ended up walk-
ing with him back to the
parking lot. While putting
stuff into my car I saw
him get into another stu-
dent's car. I waited a while
without them realizing
I was there and ended
up seeing my professor
and this student smoking
weed and fooling around.
I feel angry and be-
trayed knowing he would
put his career in danger.
They are both consenting
adults, but I don't know
whether I should report it
or not. What do you think?
- BETRAYED STUDENT
ON THEWEST COAST
DEAR STUDENT: Un-
less you have ABSOLUTE
PROOF that your profes-
sor was smoking some-
thing other than tobacco,
I think you should keep
your mouth shut. As you
said, he was with another
consenting adult. Are you
sure your feelings of anger
and betrayal aren't jeal-
ousy? Because you asked
what I think, I'll tell you:
Mind your own business.
DEAR ABBY: A year ago
my husband and I met a
nice couple on a cruise.
We had so much fun with
them we invited them to
our home for a visit.
While they were here I
showed them the photo
album I had made with our
cruise pictures. They were
in most of them. It has
been three months since
their visit and we can't find
the album. A few weeks
ago, while talking to the
wife on the phone I men-
tioned it. She said we didn't
show the album to them
but she wished we had.
Abby, we know we did!
Should I mention it
again or just make a new
one and never invite them
back? MISSING MORE
THAN THE PICTURES?


Dear Abby

DEAR MISSING: You
appear to be seeing the
picture clearly now. While
the couple may have been
charming, they're not
nearly as "nice" as you
assumed. If you want a
record of your cruise, by
all means create a second
album. (Surely you don't
need me to advise you to
never invite them back.)
DEAR ABBY: My boy-
friend and I have been
together for 19 years. We
have three children and
from the outside looking
in, you would think we
have a wonderful life. But
my boyfriend has been
unfaithful numerous times,
which has caused me
to have trust issues and
insecurities. I took him
back because I wanted our
children to be raised in a
two-parent home, which is
hard to find these days.
The problem is, two years
ago I cheated on him. He
found out by tracking my
phone, bugging the house
and monitoring my calls
and emails. He "reminds"
me of it every day and we
argue constantly. I'm sorry
it happened, but I still have
trust issues because I can't
see what he has been up to.
I guess my question is is
this a relationship worth
saving? GOOD FOR THE
GANDER, GOOD FOR THE
GOOSE
DEAR GOOSE: Let's
review your letter. Nineteen
years as a couple, three kids
and he's a serial cheater.
You cheated too, and your
complaint is that you can't
monitor your boyfriend's
activities the way he is scru-
tinizing yours?
Although you say you're
staying together for the chil-
dren, a household filled with
anger and suspicion isn't
healthy for them or for you.
This is not a relationship
worth saving in my book.


"Jesus answered, neither hath this man sinned, nor
his parents; but that the works of God should be made
manifest in him."--John 9:3.
Picture God as one who wants to pardon more than
punish, and you are on the road to finding the plan of
our Maker. He said, "I have no pleasure in the death of
the wicked."

Jin, Zizhou Wang and Erli Zhou. This
deal is from the match between the
winners and runners-up.
With no entry to the diamonds, the
normal lead is a low card. However,
Lee realized that, with no side entry,
leading low and finding partner with
J x would not help, so he started with
the queen of diamonds,
conventionally asking partner to
show attitude. Declarer won with the
ace, cleared dummy's spade honors
and followed with the king of hearts.
East won with the ace and reverted to
a diamond, West taking care to duck
as dummy's ten won.
With no entry back to hand, South
had only two spades, four hearts and
two diamonds established, so he
exited with the king of clubs. East
grabbed the ace, reverted to
diamonds and the defenders had one
heart, one club and three diamonds
- down one. At the other table
declarer had the time to score nine
tricks at the same contract, but with a
low diamond lead.
