The car was in the mail


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

How many times have you
discarded a mailer with a key from
a local car dealership, dismiss-
ing the idea of there even being a
winner?
Next time you might think twice.
Earl Jones of Venice decided to
take the key he received to Cramer
Toyota of Venice, and to everyone's
surprise it turned the lock. So last


weekend he and his wife, Caren,
drove home in a sparkling new
$17,000 2012 Toyota Corolla with a
full tank of gas.
"She was telling me to throw it
away, saying, 'You're not going to
win anyway,' and she stayed in the
car when I came in to enter the
competition," he said.
She wanted to go to another
store and did not want to stop, but
he insisted.
"I told him we didn't need


another coffee mug, but he went
into the dealership showroom,"
she said.
It was 40 minutes until closing,
nearly the end of the last day of
the three-day contest. Sales man-
ager Mike Johnson sat at his desk.
The dealership had done a mailing
of 12,500 keys and 430 people had
come through with no winner.
"I invite them to try the key in

Lavallee takes city helm


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

This week marked a new
milestone as Edward Lavallee
became Venice's new city
manager.
He spent a week visiting
with small businesses and
walking the beaches to talk to
people and "get a sense of the
community," he said, before
beginning work Monday.
"It just reinforced my
appreciation for the commu-
nity," Lavallee said. "I feel very
comfortable here."
He said the similarities
between his former employer
- the city of Newport, R.I.,
where he served as city
manager since 2005 and
Venice are many waterfront
communities with a popula-
tion influx (Newport's is in
the summer, while Venice's
is during winter) dependent
upon tourists, with many
special events (although the
Newport Jazz Festival and
America's Cup dwarf anything
the city puts on) and a com-
munity dependent on a strong
economy.
In terms of how city council
viewed his selection, "there
was an awareness I managed
those kind of large events,"
Lavallee said.
In Venice, the ambience is
very much the same as New-
port, he said.
Lavallee brings with him
skill sets that impressed city
council.
For a year he served as the
city's finance director, teach-
ing budget courses at a local
university.
"Now that I was the finance
director of a city with a

$100 million budget, I had
hands-on experience with
every department that I had
financial control over. That
was very beneficial," Lavallee
said.
More beneficial was his 27
years' experience as a police
research and development
manager.
It wasn't an underling
administrative position. When


he took the post in 1978 it
replaced the old deputy chief's
position a recommenda-
tion by International Chiefs
of Police to make the position
more suitable to someone
who didn't necessarily come
up through the rank-and-file.

Miniature golf for South Venice


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

A miniature golf course is
planned for South Venice.
CurtWalma, broker/owner
of Venice Real Estate Com-
pany, went before the Sarasota
County Development Review
Committee last week. Walma
wants to build and operate
a nine-hole mini-golf course
on property he owns on U.S.
41, south of the Lowe's home
improvement store and adja-
cent to Pit Stop Auto.
Walma said he believes his

business will fill a need.
"Our main focus is to bring
some family entertainment to
the Venice area," said Walma,
who moved here about five
years ago from KeyWest. "The
average age in Venice is the
mid to upper 60s, so I think
we are a little light on fam-
ily entertainment. Besides
bowling, movies and going to
the beach, it's a pretty short
list. So we thought it would be
nice to bring family entertain-
ment that is affordable into
the Venice area."
Because of limited space,

the course will include nine
"challenging" holes rather
than 18 and a small conces-
sion area, Walma said. Unlike
many traditional mini-golf
courses, this one will not have
a theme, with players putting
under dinosaurs or through
windmills. With some foun-
tains and a pond, he is aiming
for a look that makes players
feel they are walking through
a garden.

Sign wavers



attract attention


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

The idea behind sign spin-
ning people holding, waving
or twirling advertising signs
along the roadside is to
draw the attention of potential
customers.
They've done that, and
more.
U.S. 41 has dozens of sign
spinners throughout Sarasota
County, including around the
Venice area.
Concerned they may invade
Venice next, city council last
week directed code enforce-
ment staff and the city attor-
ney to take a look at the
practice.
Currently, sign waving is
allowed within city limits as


long as it doesn't "unreasonably
distract" drivers, according to a
2010 administrative order.
"I'm not necessarily against
it," said Council Member
Emilio Carlesimo. "But do we
want to see spinning on every
corner in Venice?
"We have to see that's com-
ing up on the radar. We need to
think about it.
"Certainly if one does it,
then others should be allowed
to do it. We should have code
enforcement look at this to see
if we have anything in place
that addresses sign spinning."
Other council members
agreed.
"It can be a safety issue if it's
too distracting," said Council

No new sand now


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

The Army Corps of Engi-
neers has dissuaded the city
of Venice from pursuing an
interim beach renourishment
program.
The city was hoping to
address three "hot spots" along
Venice Beach before the next
scheduled renourishment in
2015.
"It was the corps' decision,"
said City Engineer Kathleen
Weeden. "We discussed it and
it just wasn't financially or time

feasible.
"We did a cost analysis, and
found by the time you get all
the permits and locate the
sand source and arrange for
barges, you are really at the
next renourishment."
Truck hauling would be
"cost prohibitive," said former
Acting City Manager Nancy
Woodley in a January beach

County to address cemetery drainage issues


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

A 2006 county project
to widen Center Road
has affected drainage on
an undeveloped por-
tion of Venice Memorial
Gardens, the cemetery
owner believes.
Sarasota County staff
and the Southwest
Florida Water Manage-
ment District will hold a
pre-application meeting
March 15 on a project to
alleviate the suspected
drainage issues at the
cemetery at 1950 Center
Road.
"The big concern here
is how long it has taken
us to get to where we are,
and how much further
we have to go," County
Commissioner Jon Thax-
ton said in an email.
County Stormwater
Manager Warren Davis
has been working with
Venice Memorial Gar-
dens owner David Farley
on the drainage issues.
Farley believes his prop-
erty has been affected
since completion of the
widening project.
"His concern is that the
groundwater level seems
to remain high when,
according to him, histori-
cally, at least during the
dry season, the water
table would drop and not
impact his operations,"
said Davis, who took his
current position in July
2006.
Asked whether he


agrees with Farley, Davis
said he "can't say yes and
I can't say no."
Davis said the delays
were related to regula-
tory issues (finding a
middle ground between
alleviating flooding and
maintaining nearby wet-
lands) and determining
how to pay for the new
project.
From the county's
standpoint, according to
Davis, the Center Road
project was designed
and built according to


a water district permit,
and stormwater model-
ing indicated no adverse
impacts. Besides, a
significant portion of
cemetery property is in a
floodplain. Additionally,
the county and Farley
signed a settlement
agreement releasing the
county from all claims
related to all stormwater
issues associated with
the project.
Davis said the project
had some inconsisten-
cies that may or may not


have caused drainage
issues:
The leased property
with ponds, east of the
cemetery, is at a higher
elevation.
Construction plans
show two smaller cem-
etery drainage pipes
before construction. The
road project removed
them and replaced them
with one larger pipe.
The Center Road
widening project
was designed, per
state requirements,

to maintain seasonal
high-water levels -
the elevation to which
groundwater or surface
water can be expected to
rise due to a normal wet
season to protect the
surrounding wetlands.
"Typically, (seasonal
high-water level) is a
nonissue, except in this
case graves are dug into
the water table," Davis
wrote.
In 2010 the county
rechanneled the drain-
age from Farley's
property that initially
was intended to drain
to a wetland but was
impeded by a berm. The
berm was removed and


the drainage ditch was
cleared of vegetation,
to improve drainage.
According to Farley, the
effect of that work was
minimal.
Davis said weir adjust-
ments at a cost to
the county of about
$32,000 should lower
the water level by one
foot or more. The water
district verbally agreed to
the change, pending the
March 15 meeting.
"We're working to
resolve the problem and
hopefully it's going to
work out fine," Farley
said.

Fleming was arrested

pended license (habitual
traffic offender), and pos-

Department report:
Daniel Shane Wolfe
was driving in his truck
with his 6-month-old
daughter when he came
upon another vehicle
following a golf cart.
According to the vic-
tim, who was driving in
front of Wolfe, Wolfe got
agitated because they
began passing the golf
cart at the same time.
Feeling he got cut off,
Wolfe then passed both
vehicles, stopping in
front of the victim.
Wolfe reportedly got
out, swore at the vic-
tim, then grabbed his
shirt with one hand and
punched him in the face
with the other. The vic-

to swear as he walked
back to his vehicle. The
victim followed Wolfe to
get his license number
and reported it to police.

Treasure Hunters Come to Venice, Sarasota, & Bradenton!


By Jason Delong
THR's Treasure Hunters Roadshow


Got Gold? This week, visitors can cash in on antiques, collectibles,
gold, silver, coins or just about a,m\ ii,,i, that is old.


THR's Treasure Hunters Roadshow is not
affiliated with or related to the Antiques
Roadshow television series, PBS or WGBH


Clean out your attics, closets and
lock boxes because Treasure Hunters
are coming to Venice, Sarasota, &
Bradenton. Event specialists will
be in town examining antiques,
collectibles, gold and silver.
While they will accept anything
that's old, they will be focusing on
gold and silver coins made before
1970, military items, toys and trains,
musical instruments, pocket and wrist
watches. Scrap gold is expected to be
a popular category this week due to
soaring gold prices.
Buyers for the event have noticed a

1970 are most sought
after by collectors. Coins
made before 1970 are

even more if one happens
to be a rare date. "

tremendous increase in the amount of
gold coming to the event and for good
reason. Record gold prices have event
guests cashing in on broken jewelry or
jewelry they don't wear anymore with
our "fair and honest" purchase offers.
Treasure Hunters encourage
anyone planning a visit to take a
minute and examine their jewelry
box or their lock box at the bank and
gather anything that's gold. If a guest


is not sure if something is gold, bring
it anyway and the event staff will test
it for free. Other gold items of interest
include gold coins, gold ounces, gold
proof sets and dental gold.
Other types of items
event specialists
hope to see include
old toys and train
sets. Archie Davis,
THR's toy specialist
spoke about some of
the top toys getting
great offers. "Old
tin windup toys
from the late 1800's
through the 1960's
are in great demand
now," said Davis,

are character related.
Mickey Mouse,
Donald Duck, the
Flintstones or any
character toys are
sought. Old Buddy L
toys from the 1920's
to 1960's are in
demand." Basically
any toys made before
1970 are wanted.
Train sets made by
Lionel, American :in
Flyer, Marklin and .
others have the potential to fetch a
large sum. Davis also stressed, "Toys
with boxes and in mint condition
bring sensational prices. Most of the
toys that come to the event are not in
perfect shape but can still bring good


prices from collectors."
When specialist Tom Fuller was
asked what he enjoyed most about
working at the event, he was quick
to answer, "Old coins and paper


currency. For as long as I can
remember I have been fascinated
with collecting coins. I would go
through the change in my parents
grocery store looking for rare dates


and errors. Once, I found a silver
quarter that I sold for $300.00. Not
bad for an 8 year old."
Fuller went on to explain that
any U.S. coins made before 1970
are most sought after by collectors.
Coins made before 1970 are 90%
silver and valuable because of the
silver content or could be worth
even more if one happens to be a rare

"If you go to the event, you
can cash-in your items for
competitive prices. THR's

their coins for unique dates. We buy
all types of coins at the event from

which are valuable from one coin to
an entire truckload. See you at THR's

Fuller.

SCF wants better relationship with USF


By CHRISTINE HAWES
BRADENTON HERALD
The board of trustees for State
College of Florida will seek a
meeting with their counterparts
at the University of South Florida
to improve the two schools'
relationship.
The desire for a meeting is
triggered by concerns from SCF
Board Chair Carlos Beruff that
SCF's recent drop in enrollment
may be partially due to new
underclass offerings at USF's
Sarasota-Manatee campus.
While SCF had projected an


increase in enrollment from 2009
to today, the school's head count
enrollment is actually less today
(10,555) than in 2009 (10,877).
The Sarasota-Manatee branch of
USF by contrast, now has 431 stu-
dents taking sophomore classes
compared to 64 in 2009, when
the university first began offer-
ing sophomore classes, said USF
spokeswoman Chris Manring.
In recent years, SCF, which has
campuses in Bradenton, South
Venice and Lakewood Ranch,
has added six four-year degrees
that have attracted about 300
students so far this year, SCF


spokeswoman KathyWalker said.
Changes at the two schools
have triggered concern from
some area legislators and even
Gov. Rick Scott about possible
duplication.
Beruff said during the SCF
board's meeting Wednesday that
he hopes better communication
between the two schools will
revive the historically coopera-
tive relationship they've built
over decades.
Board member C.J. Fishman
agreed.
"Competition is healthy, but I
think it needs to be tempered,"


he said.
Manring said a joint meeting of
the two boards, which has never
before occurred, would likely be
a positive step even though most
collaborative decisions between
the two schools are made at a
staff and faculty level rather than
through the boards.
Manring also said it's unlikely
that USF's increased sophomore
class enrollment has affected
SCF's enrollment. That's because
almost all of USF's enrollment in
sophomore-level classes are actu-
ally juniors taking classes they
need to fill a void in prerequisites


or because of changing majors.
In fact, helping its junior-level
students fill those voids was the
main reason USF started offering
sophomore-level courses and
will begin offering freshman-
level courses in 2013, Manring
said. She also emphasized that
the traditional "2+2" arrange-
ment between the schools, with
many students taking their first
two years at SCF and their last
two at USE remains strong: more
than 70 percent of transfers to
USF come from SCF, she said.
USF also has a satellite cam-
pus, in North Port.

the special keyboard lock
and I don't even look up
because I do not expect
it to win," said Johnson.
"The guy kept looking
at me and pointing and
I was in disbelief. He
said, 'I won,' and I said
no, and he continued, 'I
won.'"


"We had never had a
winner," said dealership
co-owner Richard Bond,
who was in his office
when he heard Johnson
screaming, "What do we
do? The key turns the
locked"
"I was excited for
the customer and the
company," said Johnson.
"Most people think the
contests are fixed and
nobody wins. They come
in and don't believe me


when I say we send out
a winning key. Now, hav-
ing seen this, I can tell
everyone who does not
believe, we did have a
winner."
The contest is insured
and the winning key fits
into a special display car
lock with a box.
"Years ago the con-
testant would put the
key into a car lock," said
Bond, "but after 450
times trying to force in


keys not made for it the
lock on the car had to be
replaced, so we got smart,
took the lock off the car
and put it onto a box."
"I get keys occasion-
ally and sometimes take
them to the dealership,
but I have not won any-
thing before," said Jones,
who with his wife came
fromWestchester, N.Y.,
to live in Venice six years
ago. "I am very calm,
cool and collected and it


doesn't faze me at all if
it happens it happens."
He is not a competi-
tion fanatic his wife
said the only prize she
could recall winning was
a hula hoop several years
ago. And he had never
driven a Toyota before,
but Caren said her
daughter had one she
drove 130,000 miles and
his daughter has a Toyota
Corolla with 125,000
miles.

Code Enforcement
Board cited Liberty Tax
Service, formerly on the
bypass, for violating city
code, which the board
said prohibits signs that
would be a distraction
to motorists, or advertis-

The decision was never
appealed, and Liberty
Tax Service moved from
the location.
"They are fairly pro-
tected," said John Ryan,
president and CEO of the
Venice Area Chamber of


Commerce.
"They became popular
when the economy went

"That has been chal-
lenged. As long as they
are not creating a safety
hazard, they have a right

That ordinance may

Upper-Back Pain
DR. DAN BUSCH, DR. ERENE ROMANSKI
LIID fDDA P RTCnDR


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.

You won't miss mama at new Leone's


Their passions are
cooking and being
around people, so Den-
nis Makrodimitras and
Stefka Naydenova have
opened a brand-new
restaurant that hap-
pens to be in a familiar
location.
Leone's Ristorante &
Pizzeria, 1266 Jacaranda
Blvd., in the Venice Pines
Plaza, formerly was a
Mama Leone's location;
it is now completely
independent.
The management, staff
and great Italian food
remain the same, with
their award-winning
pizza, specialty dishes
and fresh fish dinners.
Lunches include sal-
ads, homemade soup,
grinders, paninis and
wraps. There is seating
for 150 diners. Plans are
to soon have a full bar,


new menu items and an
improved appearance.
Makrodimitras came
from Greece to Rhode
Island to work in the
family restaurant busi-
ness, moving to Venice
in 1994 to work with his
cousin. From Bulgaria,
Naydenova came to
Florida 15 years ago and
has for 12 years worked
in the restaurants in
North Port and at Boca
Royale. They met work-
ing in restaurants and
married 10 years ago.
Leone's opens Mon-
day through Saturday at
11 a.m. and Sunday at
noon. Call 941-496-9148.

A new restaurant
with a widely popular
dish, Key West lobster
benedict, is opening
soon: Nokomis Break-
fast House, 2301 North

expands
Venetian Dental, 463
South U.S. 41 Bypass,
has opened an office in

handle all phases of
dentistry.

Gaukhman, D.M.D.,
opened the Venice office.
With two colleagues,
he serves patients at all
three offices, said Louise
Chavez, office manager.
Call 941-484 8481.

Zoom Tan
Coming soon to Jaca-
randa Plaza is a ZoomTan
Salon as the company

New York and Florida.
The company is known
for having only stand-up

of most lie-down booths,
and they eliminate the


white spots that lie-

It is business as usual
for the restaurant,
commercial offices and
health services operating
in the Galleria on Venice
Avenue, 1500 E. Venice
Ave., despite a foreclo-
sure action filed against
the owners, Ventura
Commerce Park LLC, a
company managed by
Thomas McGinley and
Chris Deveso, by Tandy
Loanco LLC last month.
The center's businesses


say their customers and
clients can rest assured
they will continue to
operate as usual.
In December 2006
Chris Deveso held the
grand launch for this new
project, with construc-
tion expected to begin
later that month and a
projected completion of
phase one in 12 months,
allowing retailers and
offices to open early 2008.
Relaunched in
April 2008, Galleria was
described as a $35 mil-
lion premier commercial


mini-town development
bringing upscale shop-
ping to Venice. Within
the 105,000-square-foot
complex there would be
36 retail, 15 professional
and 10 medical office
units in four buildings
constructed in three
phases.
By that time the
economy had become
very sluggish, starting
in the residential sec-
tor and then affecting
the commercial sector,
with a lack of demand
for space beginning to


affect all developments
throughout the area.
Still, during the past
year and a half Deveso
and his team have sold or
leased many of the units
and offices in Galleria
Phase One. Orion Bank
had been scheduled to
take one of the two out-
parcels in the complex,
but the bank failed and
was closed down.
Calls to Ventura Com-
merce Park LLC manag-
ers seeking comments
were unsuccessful.

Baseball academy advocate takes swings


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

Cal Ripken Jr. is a Hall of Famer
who played in 2,632 consecutive
Major League Baseball games,
setting a record for endurance
that likely never will be broken.
Pat Rounds is a retired phar-
maceutical sales manager who
plans to outlast Ripken in the
debate over whether his com-
pany, Ripken Baseball, should
follow through on its July 2009
pledge to build a youth baseball
academy in Sarasota County.
Rounds is a member of
Sarasota Citizens for Respon-
sible Government, which
battled the county in court
over whether commissioners


violated Florida's Government-
in-the-Sunshine Law during
the county's negotiations over a
$31.2 million plan to bring the
Orioles here for spring training.
The youth academy issue
came up again last week when
a spokesperson for Ripken
blamed the lawsuit for the delay
of the academy project. Added
Commissioner Joe Barbetta, the
"litigation was not only costly
and expensive to the taxpay-
ers of Sarasota County, but it
delayed the construction of the
new clubhouse by over a year,
which had a ripple effect on the
entire process."
The only document of record
is the signed memorandum
of understanding between the


county and the Orioles. However,
Rounds has a draft MOU dated
June 11, 2009, that shows text
stating, "The Orioles and Ripken
Baseball commit to use their
best efforts to raise the neces-
sary funds and to construct the
youth baseball academy facilities
within two years from the effec-
tive date of this Agreement."
That language was not in
the MOU signed by the county
and Orioles officials but not
Ripken on July 22, 2009.
According to Barbetta, "It
would be ludicrous to think that
(the academy) was included in
that $31.2 million figure without
substantial additional funds
forthcoming from the com-
munity, in conjunction with the


Orioles, through fundraising
efforts."
In late 2010, after Rounds sug-
gested publicly that the commit-
ment to build a Ripken youth
academy "vanished" with the
signing of the MOU, "the county
orchestrated an effort to dis-
credit my statement," she said.
"The deputy county administra-
tor (Dave Bullock) sent an email
to the county commission taking
my comments to task."
Now, about 14 months later,
Rounds said, "Several commis-
sioners have admitted they were
aware that the Ripken Academy
wasn't a sure thing," prompting
her to ask: "How were my obser-
vations in 2010 inconsistent
with what these commissioners


are saying now?"
The final MOU language does
not match the public rhetoric.
Rounds said that during the July
22, 2009, meeting, "Alan Rifkin,
the Orioles' attorney, affirmed
under oath ... that the Cal
Ripken Youth Baseball Academy
was a 'solid' commitment. He
read a testimonial from Mr.
Ripken expressing enthusiasm
about a Cal Ripken academy
for Sarasota County. Upon
questioning, Rifkin stated that
(the) Ripken folks would begin
fundraising 'immediately.'"
"Words matter, and so do
actions," she said. "The Orioles
and Cal Ripken should deliver
on their promises."

More 'Civics 101' participants needed


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County staff is
looking for residents who
are interested in filling the
few remaining seats for
the upcoming session of
"Civics 101."
Through Civics 101, a
free, multiweek program,
participants learn how
county government oper-
ates, including attending
several onsite tours of
some visually stimulating
Sarasota County facilities.
This session begins March
15 and runs through May
17. Up to 25 people may
participate. Classes will be
held from 9 a.m. to noon

on Thursday.
"Civics 101 is a great
way to learn not only
about how your local
government works, but
also about the people
who are on the job every
day, doing their best for
our community," Sarasota
County Neighborhood
Services Manager Jane
Grogg said in a statement.
Civics 101 was con-
ceived by former county
administrator Jim Ley. The
upcoming session, the
county's 25th, will mark
the first time the classes
have been held during the
daytime, a fact that does
not please Bob Waech-
ter, a graduate of the


inaugural Civics 101 class.
"Folks that have been
waiting to take this class,
those currently on the
list, had no notice before
today, and now if they
work, (they) will not be
able to take it," Waechter
wrote in an email.
Staff agreed to put any-
one who has to cancel this
session due to the time
change first in line for the
next class.
Participants will learn
how to access an array
of programs and ser-
vices, while meeting key
county staff members.
New residents learning
about the community,
business owners dealing


with county regulations
and longtime residents
interested in local govern-
ment are encouraged to
participate.
More participation from
South County residents is
sought. Of the 82 people
who signed up for the
three previous classes,
only 18, or 21.9 percent,
gave South County postal
addresses. Fifteen were
fromVenice, two from
Nokomis and one, Justine
Mackie, community
association manager at
Lazy River Village manu-
factured home park, was
from North Port.
Post-class surveys indi-
cate that participants enjoy


onsite visits to facilities in
North County, such as the
911 call center, traffic con-
trol center and sign shop.
"The tours of area
facilities were phenom-
enal, being able to see the
inner workings and how
each facility is managed
and maintained by the
county," Mackie said. "I
had the feeling of total
transparency, despite all
of the recent issues which
have been in the news.
There didn't seem to be
any barriers, information
or physically, between the
staff members and the
public."
One way to increase
participation by South


County residents is
through having more
classes south of Blackburn
Point Road, at venues
such as the Laurel Civic
Center or Venice Com-
munity Center. Grogg said
staff is branching out.
"We are spreading the
classes geographically
around the county," she
said. For example, the
mock Planning Commis-
sion activity on March 29
will be at the Robert L.
Anderson Administration
Center in South Venice.

tion on the course, call

OUR VIEW



Try leading by example for a change


Gov. Rick Scott is right on target
when it comes to one particular
cost-savings measure in the
state budget: health insurance for
himself and the state's lawmakers.
For the past two years Scott has
proposed that all state workers pay
the same level of insurance premium,
no matter their pay grade and respon-
sibilities. In fact, Scott was nice and
succinct when he summed up the
matter recently, "I just want to be fair
to everybody."
Makes sense to us. So what's the
problem?
Some of the prime beneficiaries
of the current multi-tiered health
insurance system have desks inside
the state capital. They get to vote on
system changes for those who would
see their rates rise. That includes
themselves. And they've been very
reluctant to do that, despite attempts
to shame them into doing the right
thing.


As it stands now, lawmakers are in a
special class of state workers who pay
only $8.34 per month for individual
health-care coverage and $30 a month
for family coverage. In all, 32,000 state
workers and government officials
fall into that category. It's a very, very
good deal.
The vast majority of rank-and-
file state workers clerks, janitors,
prison guards pay a higher scale:
$50 a month for individuals and $180
a month for family coverage. Now,
that's still a very good deal, especially
in light of the fact that most family
plans cost $344 a month for workers
in private industry, according to the
Kaiser Family Foundation. But what's
to account for a state representative
paying one-sixth the premium of a file
clerk?
Super-perk.
When the matter was brought up
by Sen. Joe Negron, R-Stuart, at a
Senate Budget Committee meeting


last week, the rationalizations ran the
gamut.
Sen. Mike Bennett, R-Bradenton,
worried that a rate increase would
alter the make-up of the Legislature,
and not for the better.
"I think you're going to lower the
pool of who can afford to take this
job," he said.
"I don't want only rich people to
be up here," added Sen. Evelyn Lynn,
D-Daytona Beach.
Then there was Orlando Democrat
Sen. Gary Siplin, who managed to
offend his working-class constituents
when he argued that part-time law-
makers making a little under $30,000
a year were "different than janitors,"
apparently because they have to
compete for their jobs every couple of
years.
No doubt that statement will turn
up on any ads put out by Siplin's
opponent in November, which was
how some saw the entire exercise in


the first place: a political food fight
will little substance.
Sure, there's that. But this is a classic
put-your-money-where-your-mouth-
is scenario. Legislators have been
looking to save money by privatiz-
ing services and cutting Medicaid.
Why not send share the pain? Send a
message?
When he first came into office, the
wealthy, tough-talking Scott took
some heat when he signed up for the
state's generous health insurance plan.
But give the governor credit: At least
he put himself on record and offered a
budget that had all state workers and
state officials paying the same rate,
regardless of their job.
When it came up last week, the
Senate Budget Committee didn't
even bother to record members'
votes. Negron's measure failed when
the nayss" simply out-shouted the
"yeas."
Add another nay to that.


Haven on earth


Kirsten Fulkerson has been
out at Gulf Coast Community
Foundation, so, gracious as
ever, the foundation assigned
Chris Pfahler to assist me
with the nonprofits visits for
February.
Chris is very intelligent,
highly active and can juggle 16
different things at once. She
is truly amazing at what she
does.
Our travels took us into
Sarasota to Community Haven
for Adults and Children with
Disabilities. I wanted to go
to this facility because local
restaurant owners Robbi and
Marcus Sierra talked to me
about how they do a drive
for this organization every
Christmas to provide the
things necessary to make a
great holiday for those less
fortunate than most. This
precious drive has grown
every year, and last year the
restaurant, its employees and
patrons added a wish to be
granted to the lists provided
by Community Haven. The
drive netted enough essentials
and gifts to fill a bus. I prom-
ised I would help with the gift
drive and ride the bus up next
year. Maybe Santa will appear
with a southern accent.
We met up with Marla Doss,
interim president and CEO,
who gave us a quick introduc-
tion to some staff members, a
great summary of the facility
and its purpose and then a
tour.
Community Haven assists
children, teens and adults with
disabilities. They have a retail
plant nursery that sells to the
public; a janitorial crew for
experience; and a "piecework"
program that has contracts
from local businesses. Addi-
tionally, there are culinary arts
and chair-caning programs.
These programs are offered to
teach usable, practical skills,
and to produce paychecks for
those participants as well.
Art is not forgotten there as
Community Haven houses a
"working" art gallery where
pieces can be purchased. I was


thoroughly impressed with the
many opportunities provided
in this arena, and you just have
to see the pride and competi-
tion in the piecework area.
The mission of this organiza-
tion is empowerment, one per-
son at a time. They constantly
seek solutions using special-
ized programs enabling the
members to become educated,
self-sufficient and responsible
members of a community.
Community Haven fosters and
promotes equal opportuni-
ties for those involved in the
program.
Our tour took us through
various parts of this 32-acre
compound. During this time
what stood out the most to me
was the interaction between
staff and participants. It was
incredible to feel the electric-
ity in the air when we pulled
up or walked through. The
excitement was about accom-
plishment, knowledge and the
will to overcome, and it was
demonstrated in every inch of
this wonderful facility.
I had so many conversations
with folks about what Commu-
nity Haven meant to them and
how they would be lost with-
out the help and security Com-
munity Haven provides. The
staff demonstrated kindness
as they guided their students
in class. The people working
the jobs were overjoyed to tell
us their accomplishments that
morning, and I got a steady
feeling of pride from both staff
and students.
Community Haven offers a
residential program in which
people live on the property
year-round, and an occupa-
tional training program those
who live off-campus attend.
You can see that this entire
organization is about making a
difference in the quality of life
for those with disabilities, and
I could not be more thrilled to
have met Marla and her staff.
More important, those people
who use the facility every
single day are incredibly happy
to be a part of this wonderful
place.
Don't take my word for it
folks get out there and see
what this outfit does day in
and day out. All the info you
need about donating (funds
are always needed and wel-
comed) or to schedule a visit is
to at www.CommunityHaven.
com. I promise you will be glad
you did.

DO YOU THINK VENICE'S RANK AS THE NO. 9 BEST PLACE TO RETIRE IS GOOD NEWS OR BAD


NEWS? CALL US AT 941-207-1111
No go. It's a Venice beach and
should be public to everybody.
No one should have to pay
to use the beach. I say no for
going through Sarasota County.
Meddling. I am outraged
that the yoga classes on Venice
Beach might be scheduled by
Sarasota County. It's a health
benefit and causes no problem
for anyone. Everyone I know
says it is the highlight of their
wintering year in Florida. Do
not have Sarasota County
meddle in our yoga classes on
the beach. It's outrageous. Talk
about big government.
Publicized. According to
county officials: "Having Elin
schedule her classes through
the county would increase
publicity and ensure the loca-
tion would be adequate space
for her use." As far as publicity,
it's been word of mouth for the
classes. A lot of people walk
or bike to the classes so the
parking lot is not half full and
parking lots across the street
are not even used. Our forefa-
thers ensured the right to free
assembly. The Sarasota County
government wanting more con-
trol over Elin's free yoga classes
has already increased the class
size. This controversy has been
featured in the local newspa-
pers, been visited by PBS and
the local radio stations and has
even been mentioned in The
New York Post. For a county
that needs tourists to help fund
the bottom line, it would have
been beneficial if this issue had
been more positive by not try-
ing to nickel and dime free yoga
at Venice Beach.
Keep it. Keep yoga on the
beach.
Fuss. How many women use
some form of artificial birth
control? I'll bet the answer is
very close to 100 percent. Why
all the fuss?
Blame business. Almost
everything we buy in the
United States is manufactured
in China. It's no wonder so
many in the U.S.A. can't find


Let 'em


Have It
jobs. So, is that Obama's fault?
He didn't start the trend. Busi-
ness controls this country.
Always has, always will.
Good job. Leave Elin alone
on the beach. She's a big draw
for tourists and people love to
go. We need something to keep
us going and she's doing a
good job. So, leave her alone.
Wrong place. In reference to
the old, historic, yellow house
that sits across fromVenice City
Hall this is another attempt
to preserve something that has
historic significance for some
folks, not all folks. First of all,
the house sits in the wrong
location. The house was moved
a few years back to the site
across from city hall and that
was to be a temporary location.
That's a fact, folks, so do your
research. The "historic" house
should have been moved with
the express approval of the
proper boards directly across
from the historic Triangle Inn
and it should have been done
without a hitch. Then, we
would have the Venice Public
Library, the Venice Community
Center, the historical Venice
Triangle Inn and historic Lord-
Higel House all in one location


and lots of parking for all
events. You might have gotten
more money and support for
the project if it were located
in the right place, which is
directly across from the historic
Triangle Inn.
Unscheduled. No scheduling
for yoga on the beach. If your
family was benefiting from it,
you'd be all for it.
"Unorganized." The great
thing about yoga on the beach is
that it's not an organized event.
It's a public beach and should
be open to all. My question is,
why is it when someone comes
up with a great idea that's ben-
eficial and enjoyed by all, the
county has to try to be involved?
So please keep it unscheduled.
Keep Ed. I think Ed Martin
should keep writing his col-
umn for the Gondolier Sun. I
think we're fortunate to have
the opportunity to hear from a
former mayor who has served
inside the system of the city and
now is a citizen outside. I think
he can provide a unique per-
spective on the issues on what's
going on in Venice. I think he
does a fine job of it. I think he's
a moderate person who takes all
views into consideration. I think
it's a good thing. I wish more
papers had that a regular col-
umn from somebody who has
served, is now out, and therefore
has that unique perspective.
Lip service. Should our
wonderfulVenice ladies be
concerned about recent news
reports that much lipstick
exceeds an EPA limit of 10 parts
per million of lead? Contami-
nated soil contains 10 parts per
million of lead too and urban
soils much more. The ladies
would have to eat 10 lipsticks
to consume one milligram of
lead. By comparison, just one
1-ounce lead fishing weight
the children use could sup-
ply the entire population of
Venice with one milligram of
lead. Newspaper editors have a
responsibility to not unneces-
sarily alarm the public.

Loss of memory


-a new epidemic


Good morning.
It was pretty scary.
The boy in the iron lung
came to visit our junior
high school. There he lay
in a wheeled cocoon of
steel and glass. We could
gaze at his recumbent
figure as he twisted his
neck to look back at us as
we filed by. The machin-
ery did his breathing for
him.
Polio was the scourge
that seemed to pick and
choose, mostly young
victims at random. For
the most part it crippled
the lower limbs and
sometimes resulted in
death.


We eagerly downed the
red liquid of the vaccine
when it was given at
school. President Roos-
evelt's "March of Dimes"
helped develop that
vaccine.
The image of the boy
in the lung came back
to me this week while
attending a seminar on
a scary affliction that
is reaching epidemic
proportions. Alzheimer's
is a form of dementia
that will attack 3 percent
of 65-year-olds and 50
percent of 90-year-olds.
It is crippling 5.4 million
Americans and involves
15 million caregivers:
spouses, family mem-
bers, friends and health
professionals.
The local Alzheimer's
Association sponsored
the seminar last week
at South Port Square
in Port Charlotte. Led
by radiologist Thomas
Fabian, it featured three
experienced, articulate


professionals from
Charlotte and Sarasota
Counties. Pam Polowski,
a dementia specialist at
Infinity Home Care, has a
wealth of practical expe-
rience. Venice neurolo-
gist Dr. Julie Coleman,
a former professor at
the University of Miami
School of Medicine, is
a physician with more
demands on her time
than there are hours in
the week. Attorney John
Griffin and his wife and
law partner, Carrie Grif-
fin, are one of eight firms
in Sarasota that special-
ize in elder law. They
described the personal
and community impact
of a growing epidemic
that is damaging the
brain cells of one in
seven residents.
Dementia is a catchall
label for the disrup-
tion of rational think-
ing due to memory
loss. Alzheimer's is its
most prevalent form.


Generally the disease is
at work for five years or
more before it manifests
itself. Except for one
form that may appear in
candidates in their 30s or
40s, the disease does not
appear to be genetic but
is definitely related to
aging. While some loss of
memory is a part of nor-
mal aging, Dr. Coleman
comforted us by saying,
if you are aware of a little
forgetfulness it is prob-
ably not Alzheimer's.
While science is at work
studying the causes of the
disease, currently there
is no known way to keep
critical brain cells from
dying. There are, however,
medicines that will help
people cope with some
of the dementia and
prolong their ability to
function on their own.
The thought of slowly
losing one's memory and
sense of identity and the
possibility of suffering
a change of personality


in which a neat, pleas-
ant, calm, person may
become an angry,
paranoid with no care for
personal hygiene is not
a cheerful one. It can be
anguishing for a spouse,
child or professional
caregiver.
Attorney Griffin
pointed out that during a
period when the disease
is silently at work unde-
tected, a breadwinner
might lose all of the fam-
ily assets. Or make a bad
judgment call to cancel
an insurance policy. He
said there are a number
of legal steps couples
can take well before one
of them is surprised by
Alzheimer's challenges
that may wipe out the
resources of the surviv-
ing spouse.
As modern medicine
helps us extend life, the
costs of caring for those
with dementia escalates.
For a family that is pay-
ing cash for full care in a


qualified nursing-home
environment, the costs
can be $8,500 a month.
Those that can afford this
cost without going bank-
rupt are a small fraction
of those in need of assis-
tance. The cost of profes-
sional care means family
members, who may find
themselves consumed by
both physical and mental
stress, absorb most of the
burden.
While the government
and pharmaceutical
companies work toward
a cure, understanding
the disease and commu-
nity resources can ease
the burden for those who
are stricken and their
caregivers.
Perhaps we need a
"March of Dollars" to
speed the cure.

I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Snyder saved
city big bucks
Editor:
As a Venice taxpayer for
35 years, I am concerned
about losing our city
finance director one of
the best in the profession
- who Venice is very for-
tunate to have had, espe-
cially since the downturn
in the economy.
Jeff Snyder's numer-
ous actions during the
downturn have resulted
in a financially secure
city and lowered taxes.
I was on city council
in 2000, and then again
between 2003 and 2009.
I did not like the fact
that the finance director
was a charter officer, and
voted to eliminate that
designation. To the best


of my recollection, this
vote did not anticipate
a requirement to alter
the finance director's
contract; nor do I feel it
is necessary to change
that contract now. I fear a
expensive lawsuit against
the city if Mr. Snyder
resigns as a result of the
city's unilaterally termi-
nation of his contract.
Jeff Snyder's numer-
ous actions prior to and
since the downturn in the
economy have resulted in
a financially secure city
and lowered taxes while
other cities in the state
have had to increase taxes
to cover lost revenue and
excessive expenses. While
Mr. Snyder's actions have
been numerous, I have
listed only a couple of
examples:


1. Mr. Snyder avoided
significant cash-flow
problems by withdraw-
ing the city's investment
in the state-run invest-
ment pool and investing
our funds in areas that
made significant profits;
this while the state-run
investment pool lost
millions. North Port had
to pay $600,000 to get
access to what was left
of its state investment
funds, while the school
board had to borrow
money to make payroll.
2. He recommended
and then helped migrate
the city's general employ-
ees from single-employer
pension plans to the
Florida State Retirement
System. Result: a $2 mil-
lion payback to the city
and $200,000 savings


per year thereafter, plus
a better retirement for
employees.
3. He identified, then
helped correct, the nega-
tive position of the utility
fund, which was in a
negative cash position of
$9.5 million.
There is a long list of
significant actions taken
by Mr. Snyder that have
resulted in the city's posi-
tive cash position, lower
taxes and millions in
savings.

Obama is not
missing in action
Editor:
I am disgusted with the
racial innuendo regarding


the whereabouts of the
president in a recent
letter to the editor of the
Gondolier Sun.
The writer claims that
the president hasn't been
seen since at the White
House since he went on
vacation in Hawaii at
the end of the year. He
writes that there was
no announcement of
the return of any of the
family from Hawaii. He
states that the president
has been seen through-
out the States at political
meetings but wonders
where he sleeps.
The writer finds it
strange that white Ameri-
cans want to know where
he has been sleeping
and suggests that black
Americans should be
concerned as well.


The White House
publishes the president's
calendar on the Web at
www.whitehouse.gov/
schedule/president.
Everyone can see what
the president will be
doing hour by hour today
and review what he has
done hour by hour back
through 2011. In 2012 he
has been in Washington
most of the time and
made several day trips. I
believe the schedules of
his family are kept pri-
vate, as they should be.
The writer will see that
the president goes home
to his family in Washing-
ton most nights, just like
the rest of us white or
black.

Why do so many people have AARP Medicare Supplement Insurance, insured by UnitedHealthcare

Have the flexibility to visit any doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare patients

Writer's song makes blue star shine


By SUSAN ERWIN
STAFF WRITER

Ann Favreau knows how
important it is to get regular
screenings because she is
a 24-year survivor of colon
cancer.
Among cancers that affect
both men and women, colon
cancer is the second-leading
cause of cancer deaths in the
United States. Every year,
more than 140,000 Americans
are diagnosed with colorectal
cancer, and more than 50,000
people die from it, according
to a report at www.cdc.gov.
As a member of the
National Colorectal Cancer
Roundtable, Favreau is per-
sonally involved in helping
spread awareness about this
silent killer.
The organization is working
to make people aware that
the blue star is the official
symbol for colon cancer.


Favreau is an active member
of the Blue Star Task Force.
"Members of this round-
table are doctors, nurses,
business people and cancer
survivors; they make up a
broad range of people who
are desperately trying to
increase screening rates so
less Americans die every year
from the disease," Favreau
said. "Almost everybody
knows about the pink rib-
bon being the breast cancer
symbol, so we are trying to
get the word out about the
blue star."
At the last meeting a strong
emphasis was put on the
topic and members were
asked to brainstorm ideas to
help make the symbol more
popular.
Favreau went home, thought
about it for several days and
felt a poem would be a good
way to help promote it.
"I'm a member of the


SuncoastWriters Guild, so
after I wrote it I sent it to
them and asked what they
thought about it," Favreau
said. "They they sent it back
to me and added music notes
and made it into a song."
The roundtable members
were thrilled with the poem
and song, and the theme is
now being used in websites
around the country and in
the United Kingdom.
"I don't expect to get any
credit or anything for it I
just wanted to help get the
word out there," Favreau said.
In 1998 Favreau was invited
to a media event at the White
House to draw national atten-
tion to colorectal cancer
prevention. Hillary Rodham
Clinton organized a team
to persuade members of
Congress to get colorectal
cancer screenings covered by
Medicare.

Teen star Selena Gomez shooting movie in Sarasota


By WADE TATANGELO
BRADENTON HERALD

Teen queen Selena
Gomez, who recently
told her 10.6 million
Twitter followers that she
was "loving Florida," will
be on location this week
at the Ringling College
of Art and Design in
Sarasota.
The former Disney
darling and current Jus-
tin Bieber babe has been
cast in "Spring Breakers."
The latest by writer-
director Harmony Korine
("Kids," "Gummo") also
stars Oscar nominee
James Franco, Vanessa
Hudgens ("High School
Musical"), Ashley Benson
("Pretty Little Liars") and
Heather Morris ("Glee").
"Spring Breakers" is
from Muse Productions,
the company known for
such edgy features as
"American Psycho," "Buf-
falo 66" and "Spun."
"It brings that entirely
different demographic,"
said Jeanne Corcoran,
director of the Sarasota
County Film & Enter-
tainment Office. "Young
people who have never
heard of Sarasota are
going to see the very cool
Ringling College, among
other interesting things
all over the Tampa Bay
region."
Korine co-wrote the


screenplay
for the
critically
acclaimed,
highly
controver-
sial, unrated
film "Kids,"
which came GOMEZ
out in 1995.
He also wrote and
directed the equally
controversial 1997 movie
"Gummo," rated NC-17.
"Spring Breakers" is
about best friends since
grade school Brit,
Candy, Cotty and Faith
- who live together in a
boring college dorm and
are seeking adventure.
"All they have to do is
save enough money for
spring break to get their
shot at having some real
fun," the Muse website
reads. "A serendipitous
encounter with rap-
per 'Alien' promises to
provide the girls with all
the thrill and excitement
they could hope for.
"With the encourage-
ment of their new friend,
it soon becomes unclear
how far the girls are will-
ing to go to experience
a spring break they will
never forget."
Gomez, Hudgens and
Benson started filming in
St. Petersburg Thursday,
according to the film
company's website.
"It's great they're using


locations throughout
the region, from Tampa
to St. Pete to Sarasota,"
Corcoran said. "Harmony
Korine is very cutting
edge and also exposes
us to a whole new
demographic."
The film shoot will
coincide with Ringling
College's spring break.


"We're thrilled to have
a real-life production on
campus and that our stu-
dents will be involved as
extras and assistants on
the film," said Christine
Meeker Lange, special
assistant to the president
for media and commu-
nity relations at Ringling
College.


"The Fantastic Flying
Books of Mr. Morris Less-
more," a short film created
by Moonbot Studios, an
animation and storytell-
ing studio cofounded by a
Ringling College graduate
and Trustee, won an Oscar
Feb. 26.
Nineteen Ringling
College graduates,


including Moonbot
cofounder Brandon
Oldenburg and one
Ringling College intern,
worked on the film with
Moonbot staff.
"We love the idea of
showcasing Sarasota and
becoming more involved
in the film industry,"
Meeker Lange said.

Wildlife advocates talk turtle


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER

As state principal per-
mit holders for sea turtle
nest monitoring, Wilma
Katz and Zoe Bass have
long been recognized for
advocacy and oversight
of one of the Gulf Coast's
richest stretches for sea
turtle nesting.
Katz, Bass and other
members of the Coastal
Wildlife Club recently
met with more than 400
other conservationists,
environmentalists and
researchers for the inau-
gural Southeast Regional
Turtle Network confer-
ence on Jekyll Island, Ga.
Katz said sea turtle
research is long-term
and collaborative -
not only what is seen
between researchers


and sea-turtle nesting
volunteer patrols, but
also what is developing
between nations, such
as ongoing conservation
efforts between the U.S.
and Mexico since 1978.
Local sea turtle nest
monitors such as Katz
on Manasota Key and
Brenda Bossman on
Garparilla, Knight and
Don Pedro islands col-
lect data during turtle
nesting season April to
October that contrib-
ute to regional, state and
national data banks.
At the conference,
Florida state researcher
Blair Witherington talked
about the contribution
made by Sinkey Boone, a
Georgia shrimper whose
design for one of the first
turtle excluder devices,
commonly called TEDs,

helped revolutionize sea
turtle protection.
Boone who was 73
when he died in 2010 -
designed a TED in 1983
that not only allowed


sea turtles to escape
commercial shrimping
nets but also was a TED
shrimpers liked.
"(Boone's design)
has stood the test,"


Witherington said.
TEDs, sea turtle nest-
ing protections and
other conservation
efforts may be starting
to bear fruit, Withering-
ton suggested.
This past year, Wither-
ington said the state has
seen an increase in green
and leatherback sea
turtle nesting.
According to the FWC
sea turtle nesting survey,
15,352 green turtle nests
were documented on
Florida beaches, while
1,652 leatherback nests
were discovered.
"We're pleased," With-
erington said, crediting
the increase to ongoing
conservation efforts.
Loggerhead sea turtles
are by far the most
common on local and
area Gulf beaches. Their


numbers are not seeing
the increases that green
and leatherbacks are
enjoying.
What's not clear is
why the state has seen
a decline of the number
of loggerhead nests from
1998 to 2010.
Florida had 68,587
loggerhead nests in the
past year. Some signs
indicate the decline may
be stabilizing 2011
saw an increase of log-
gerhead nests on Mana-
sota Key and other local
Gulf beaches over the
previous year.
Questions about
a declining trend in
loggerheads are still
being debated among
researchers, Withering-
ton said.

County email archive limited to 60 days


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

A change in policy
regarding the county's
commissioner email
viewing system will dras-
tically reduce immediate
access to many messages.
Previously, users
could instantly view
several months of emails
between commissioners
and administrators at
webmail.scgov.net, but
they also had the option
of viewing emails dating
back a number of years,
using a keyword search.
Access to recent emails
is a feature of the new
system, which went live
last week. However, it
allows keyword searches
of emails only as old as
60 days.
"This is to save storage
and enhance perfor-
mance," county spokes-
man Glenn Zimmerman
said. "We're essentially
storing the email twice.
We're trying to cut down
on the redundancy. As
the mailboxes fill up ...
performance degrada-
tion can occur."
To view emails writ-
ten prior to the 60-day
retention residents now
must make a public
records request. The new
email system and the
long-standing process
for making such requests
can be accessed by
going to the county's
website, www.scgov.net,
and clicking on Public
Information.


Public records requests
could prove to be an
inefficient means for
users seeking commis-
sioner emails. Under the
old system, users could

Manatee blanks Venice, 5-0


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

Collecting only three hits and
committing four errors. Not a
good combination for Venice.
Manatee's Correlle Prime
tossed a three-hit shutout and
the Hurricanes scored three
unearned runs in a 5-0 win
over the Indians on Tuesday in
a Class 7A-District 11 game at
Venice High.
"When you play a good team
you can't have as many errors
as we had and we have to have
more than three hits," said
Venice coach Craig Faulkner.
Prime (3-0) limited Venice to
three hits with four walks and
five strikeouts.
Venice had their opportunities
to score.
The Indians (4-3 overall, 2-2
district) had runners in scoring
position in the first, third, fourth
and sixth innings but came away
with nothing while stranding
eight runners six in scoring
position.
In the first inning, the Indians'
Michael Knott singled with one
out and advanced to second
on a passed ball. However,
Prime got out of the jam with a
groundout and strikeout.
With one out in the third
inning, Michael lorio walked
and went to second on a passed
ball. Rex Ingerick walked then
Knott singled between first and
second base. Faulkner held up
Iorio at third base to load the
bases. A grounder to shortstop
resulted in a 6-4-3 double play
to end the inning.
The Indians stranded a runner
at second base in the bottom of
the fourth inning with one out
as Prime got two fly outs to the
center fielder.
"We've won some 1-0 and
low-scoring ball games," said
Faulkner. "If they score more
than two or three runs we are
not getting it done. We have to
get more clutch hits and do a
better job defensively."
In the sixth inning, Venice
loaded the bases again on a
fielder's choice, single and walk.
However, Prime got a strike-
out to keep the Indians from
scoring.

Garden club hosts 23rd annual tour


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Venice and several of
its young people are the
big winners of the Venice
Area Garden Club's
annual home tour.
Money raised on the
annual tour funds schol-
arships for graduating
seniors of Venice High
School who have a 3.0 or
higher grade-point aver-
age and an interest in
environmental or related
studies. The scholarships
are named for Jane Lowe
and Betty Stewart. More
than $80,000 has been
awarded over the years.
The club also provides
scholarships for high
school students to attend
a Save the Earth's Environ-
ment through Knowledge
summer camp program
and funds two camp
scholarships for younger
students to attend Camp
Wekiva. Last year's
scholarship winners were
Nathanael Levine, Esther
Mezhibovsky and Kelsey
Mahoney.
Club members also
work with students in the
high school's Interact Club
on area beautification
projects. Recently, they
planted two butterfly gar-
dens along the Venetian
Waterway Park and a new
butterfly garden at the
Triangle Inn, home of the
Venice Archives and Area
Historical Collection.
Members work with
the elderly by offering a
garden therapy program
at retirement homes.
A new picnic shelter
at Caspersen Beach was
funded by club fundrais-
ing projects such as the
home tour and biennial
flower show.
The club refurbished
and maintains the city's
Blue Star Marker, which
is located near the Venice
Area Chamber of Com-
merce. Each year on
Arbor Day club members
plant a tree in honor of
club presidents.
At holiday time, the
club decorates indoor
trees atVenice City Hall
and at the Venice Pub-
lic Library and three
outdoor trees in Blalock
Park's arboretum.
Members are offered
a variety of workshops
throughout the year
covering such topics as
garden therapy, horticul-
ture and floral design.
They also grow plants
and make gift items that
are offered for sale in a
boutique and plant sale
shops set up in two of
the tour homes this year.

Parichat (Mod) Cartwright sits beside one of her paintings.
Many of the paintings in the Cartwright home were done by


place in an international
garden design contest in
Baanlaesuan Magazine,
a Thailand publication
which has been compared
to House and Garden
magazine in this country.
The winner was selected
from an online vote of the
top 10 gardens. The Venice
garden was the only one
outside of Thailand to
make the top 10 and was
featured in last month's
edition.
In this month's edition
of the same magazine,
the garden is featured in
a multi-page spread. It


was designed by Parichat
(Mod) Cartwright, who is
a native of Thailand, and
her husband, Peter. She
is the owner of Parichat
House, which sells a vari-
ety of Thai merchandise.
She also is a painter and
floral designer.
In addition to the Thai-
inspired garden, there
are many decorative
elements from Thailand
within the house.
The home of Vladi-
mir Blagonadezhdin
and Patty Marinovich is
filled with art, including
samples of the Russian

AAUW sponsors academic olympics


FROM EDUCATION FOUNDATION
OF SARASOTA COUNTY
Its members already donate
thousands of hours every year to
academic olympics, serving as
moderators, monitors and judges
for the area high school competi-
tion. For the third year in a row,
the American Association of Uni-
versityWomen-Venice branch
added its financial support,
becoming an olympic bronze


sponsor for the 2012 matches
and Sarasota County's All-Star
team.
Presenting a check for $1,000
before the Valentine's Day match
between Pine View and Suncoast
Polytechnical, AAUW-Venice
branch president Shirley Reid
congratulated the volunteers and
coaches for over three decades of
service.
"We are proud to work with
the Education Foundation of


Sarasota County to deliver a
program that stimulates and
challenges the best young minds
in our community," she said.
Reid presented the check to
Susan Scott, the Education Foun-
dation's new executive director.
The college bowl-style com-
petition is the only program for
area high schools that provides
the opportunity for competi-
tive team efforts in academics
comparable to athletics.


The annual series kicked off
last month with matches among
nine local high schools, includ-
ingVenice High School and Pine
View School. Weekly round-robin
competition continues through
March. Matches begin on Tues-
days at 3:15 p.m. and the public
is welcome. Schools require
check-in at the main office.
On March 20, semi-finals
matches will determine the four
finalist teams. The academic


olympics finals tournament
starts at 9 a.m. Saturday,
March 24, at the Sarasota County
School Board auditorium in The
Landings. The competition is
free and open to the public. The
Sarasota County All-Star team
will be announced following the
championship match that after-
noon. Sarasota County's All-Stars
will advance to the Florida Edu-
cation Commissioner's Academic
Challenge in Orlando in April.


Virtual school enrollment begins


FROM SARASOTA COUNTY
SCHOOL DISTRICT
SarasotaVirtual School
began enrolling students
for the 2012-13 school year
March 5. Qualified stu-
dents may enroll through
Thursday, June 28.
SVS is a district public
school that provides a full-
time online learning option
for students in grades K-12.
A student must have been
enrolled full-time in a
Florida public school (tra-
ditional, charter or alterna-
tive) in the previous year to
be eligible.
SarasotaVirtual School
is an interactive learn-
ing environment created
through technology in
which the student and
teacher are separated
by time, space or both.
Students access lessons
and assignments and
receive assessments via the
Intemet. Using technology,
teachers communicate
with students and parents.
The school meets all
Florida public school stan-
dards and requirements.


Students completing
graduation requirements
will receive a high school
diploma.
The Sarasota County
School District contracts
with two outside virtual
instruction providers
approved by the school
board. K12 Florida provides
the district with online
learning services for stu-
dents in grades K-12; Flor-
idaVirtual School serves
students in grades nine-12.
High school students can
use either provider.
The virtual school uses a
state-approved curriculum
with instructional materials
that include textbooks and
various printed materials.
Computers and Internet
access may be provided
at no charge to eligible
students who meet family
income requirements.
Instructors are highly quali-
fied or certified teachers, as
defined by the federal No
Child Left Behind law.
At Sarasota Virtual
School, parents take an
active role in monitoring
student progress. Students


and parents are able to
communicate with teach-
ers through the passing of
assignments and mate-
rials to and from stu-
dents. Student attendance
is monitored based on
online activity, completion
of material and successful
assessments.
Textbooks and tradi-
tional instructional materi-
als are used, but much of
the content is delivered
via the providers' websites,
www.kl2.com/flvp (grades
K-12) and www.flvsft.com
(grades nine-12).
Eligible students for the
2012-13 school year are
those who are in grades
one-12 and were enrolled
in a Florida public school
since Sept. 30, 2011.
Students who are entering
kindergarten in 2012-13
are eligible to enroll in the
district's virtual school.
According to current
Florida law, students who
were home-schooled dur-
ing the 2011-12 school year
are not eligible for SVS.

ested in the virtual school

Q 1 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

4 8 J 6 5 4 A Q 10 9 4 3

The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
16 Pass 10 Pass

What do you bid now?

A You have a minimum, unbalanced
hand, and there is only one way to
show that. Bid two clubs. Any
forward-going move must come from
partner.

Q 2 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

4983 J873 0KQ873 66

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

A You have little enough and that is
a good enough reason to pass one
spade. Your partner could have a
pretty good hand but don't give him a
chance to get excited by bidding
again. Be happy to put your dummy
on the table pass.

Q 3 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
K 10 7 6 AKJ 7 3 0 9 J106


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
14 Pass 20)
36 Pass ?
What do you bid now?


WEST
Pass


A When you bid two hearts, you
intended jumping to four spades at
your next turn. All that has changed
- partner has shown extra values by
bidding a new suit at the three level.
Bid a Blackwood four no trump to
find out how many aces partner has.

Q 4 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:


KJ 10 A9 0 AKQ763 95


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
16 Pass 30

What action do you take?


WEST
Pass

A You surely have slam unless your
side has two fast club losers. The way
to tell him you have two fast losers in
the unbid suit is to raise to five
spades, asking him to proceed to
slam with first- or second-round
control of clubs.

Q 5 Both vulnerable as South you
hold:

AA KQJ984320 8496

What is your opening bid?

A While you do not have much in
the way of high cards, you do have
eight playing tricks. Bid four hearts
and tell partner not to worry about the
trump suit if he has outside controls.

Q 6 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

SQ ) AK 10 7 6 3 AQ 10 7 83

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

A You have a strong, distributional
hand and it is tempting to cue-bid two
clubs, but partner might think you
have spade support for that action, so
we would settle for three hearts,
which is forcing. Should partner bid
three spades then, we would take our
chances by raising to four spades.

Tour Venice and

Sarasota homes
any women and some men enjoy touring other people's
homes and even new homes and condos.
If this describes someone you know, get the word out
about the annual home and garden tour in Venice sponsored by the
Venice Area Garden Club and, in Sarasota, the annual Creators
and Collectors Suncoast Art Tour.
Friday and Saturday's Venice tour features five homes filled
with ideas from dream kitchens to a garden that is being
featured this month in the leading home and garden decorat-
ing magazine of Thailand. For advance tickets at $15 each, call
Cardware at 941-493-8636, Classic Creations at 941-497-6331,
Collectors' Gallery at 941-488-3029 or the Paper Pad at
941-488-8800 before Friday. The day of the show, tickets
are $20 and may be purchased at any of the homes. One
of the three on the island of Venice is at
600 Flamingo Drive and one of the two at Sawgrass is at
481 Arborview Lane. Don't skip even one or you might miss
the one you think is best of all.
The Creators & Collectors Tour is organized annually by
members of the Fine Arts Society of Sarasota.
The tour features the homes and studios of print maker Nancy
Turner, multi-media painter Andrea Dasha Reich, ceramic and metal
sculptor Adam Todd and water colorist Joseph Melancon who also
was featured on the tour four years ago.
A companion gallery exhibit includes the works of two
Venice designers, glass artist Liana Martin and fabric artist
Linda Tilson. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door.
Visit www.fineartssarasota.com for tickets and information.

Epcot bursts into bloom this week


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
In recent weeks large green hedgerows of cedar
trees blocked off sections of Epcot.
Behind the green barricades, Disney garden-
ers were working their magic for the opening of the
19th annual Epcot Flower & Garden Festival.
Sponsored by HG-TV, the festival is an idea
factory for gardeners of all ages. It also is the sea-
son when Epcot looks even more beautiful than
usual, assuming that is possible given Disney's
400 gardeners who maintain the Walt Disney
World Resort.
They bring back favorite character topiaries
each year but they also usually add several new
ones and, just to confuse folks like me, they move
Donald and my other favorites to new locations.
Sorcerer Mickey will be in front of Spaceship
Earth this year. He won't be alone but will be
surrounded by a bevy of characters from the
Disney classic, "Fantasia." The show booklet
which you can pick up inside the park, gives
you all the demonstration times, topiary loca-
tions and Flower Power concert times and star
information.
Floating tires filled with impatiens float in the
ponds that separate Future World from World
Showcase. Rose bushes leading toward the
Canada area of World Showcase will soon be
at their peak and there will be what seems like
hundreds of flower baskets hanging from every
available light pole.
Should you want to transform your own yard
into such a paradise, there are seminars and
demonstrations daily at noon and 3 p.m. featuring
such designers from HGT as Kim Myles, Frank
Fontana, Lisa laPorta, John Gidding and VernYip.

Gidding is the first speaker, offering curb appeal
ideas Friday-Sunday.
On the Greenhouse Stage at the festival center
there are still more demonstrations and everyday
at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m., planting pointers. In addition
to the HG-TV speakers, there will be presen-
tations by Disney horticulturists and Robert
Bowden of Orlando's Harry P. Leu Gardens and a
lengthy list of other nationally known experts.
Festival merchandise is for sale throughout all
of Epcot and includes Disney garden statuary so
you too can have Donald or Mickey in your yard
at all times for company Unique specialty garden
items mentioned in seminars is more likely to be
found in the area near where the seminars are
being given.
Haiti presents its illuminated "Garden of Many
Colors" next to Germany in World Showcase. The
Flower Power concerts are nearby in the America
Garden Theatre, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The
Guess Who will perform this coming weekend.
Chubby Check will be there next week and Melissa
Manchester the following week. Herman's Hermits
will be featured for the final concert May 13-15.
Not only will you want to return to see several
different entertainers but you should return just to
see the different flowers too. In these early weeks,
the festival features cold-hard specimens more
likely to be seen in the north during the summer.
In April, Disney gardeners replace many of the
plants with varieties better suited for central and
south Florida.
The minute this festival ends, planning will
begin for the 20th annual event.
The festival is included with admission to
Epcot. For more information, visit www.disneyworld.

Original artists featured at PODS Englewood Music Festival


BY JACK GRAY
GRAY MATTER ENTERPRISES LLC
Over a dozen original artists will be
featured at this year's PODS Englewood
Music Festival Friday-Saturday.
Have you ever wondered what it would have
be like to be at the first big stage performance of
an up-and-coming superstar or group? Imagine
seeing Elvis before he made it big, or to have
been in the audience at Woodstock to see
Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young perform on stage
for the very first time. Well, this may be a perfect
opportunity as this year's PODS Englewood
Music Festival will host a dozen original artists
releasing new albums who will be performing
their new music at this year's event.
On Friday, Passion For Power will be perform-
ing their brand new rock opera "Death of the
Illuminati" for the first time in public on the big
stage. The production is a new age view of the
history of the world set to a powerful multimedia
presentation, lights and sound. At the end of
March they will travel to Illinois to perform a live
world-wide podcast, filming, and launch their sub-
sequent world tour. This will be a sneak preview
of this historic production.
Tony Saint Tone recently moved from Engle-
wood to Los Angeles, Calif. and has been work-
ing in the film industry doing sound engineering
and setting soundtracks for several movies. He
will be performing Saturday on the Englewood
Ford Stage and will also be scouting the rest of
the weekend for some new talent to plug in films
when he returns to Hollywood. Another connec-
tion to Englewood,
Chris Walker has just announced the release
of a new album and a CD kick-off party at
Preservation Hall, 215 E. Main St., Lakeland on
April 20. Walker grew up in Englewood and is a
Lemon Bay High School graduate. He moved to
Tampa about five years ago to attend USF and
now lives in Lakeland. Fans will be able to see his
new material as he performs Friday night at the
festival right in his own home town.
From Fort Myers, Tuk'r Hill's new CD, "Made In


America,' has received rave reviews throughout
the media. Songs like "Did I,'" Perfect Person,"
and "Her Too Falling" have a very unique, yet
familiar, original sound. They are the type of
band that, even though you've never heard them
play before, it seems like you heard their songs
your whole life.
These acts and many others including Honey
Henny Lime from Florida's east coast, Max McCann
&The Displacements, Trio De Janeiro, Jack Mosley,
Toop Rock Junkies, Terry Hogan and The Lasttt.
Additionally there will be performances from
some phenomenal upstart talent including
Bethany Burnette, from Orlando, who performs
the "National Anthem" at many sporting events
around the state. Burnette is a unique talent
in that she suffers from autism and is a com-
pletely different person on stage. She uses her
performance as her way to express herself.
Look forward to a very inspiring performance. In
addition to her 30 minute show, Burnette will also
perform "The National Anthem"just prior to Glenn
Leonard, former lead singer for The Temptations,
takes the stage about 7:30 p.m. to perform his
"Hitsville Live" tribute to Motown Saturday night.
Tayzer is another youth talent story. This
teenage band has a sound which rivals many
seasoned professional musicians.
Discovering new talent in our area, and
featuring them during the festival is one of the
goals of this event. In addition, young bands like
Seek The Reason and Zombie University kicking
off the festival at 3 p.m. Friday may be the next
generation's Rolling Stones or Bruce Springsteen
and The E. Street Band.
There will also be plenty of the old favorites
played when The Florida Blues Brother's take the
stage, as well as something for everyone when
Wildlife With Jungle Brass from Orlando will have
you up, out of your seats and dancing with their
big brass band sound.
Come hungry and sample some great food items
with tastes from around the world including Greek,
Italian, Mexican, Caribbean and Americana.
This family-friendly event is designed to bring

Tour artists' homes and studios


BY KIM COOL four years since his first time on the tour, he was


FEATURES EDITOR
Touring the homes and studios of creative
people is right up there with factory tours
for those of us with an insatiable curiosity
to see how things are made.
This week, one can see the homes and studios
of five major artists plus a gallery show featuring
the work of several additional area artists.
The tour is self-guided. Make it a day trip or
take two days to visit the sites and chat with the
artists who will be in their studios both days,
doing demonstrations.
The southernmost studios are off Clark Road,
east of 1-75 (exit 205). Ceramic and metal sculp-
tor Adam Todd can be found at 6400 S. Gator
Creek Blvd. and painter Andrea Dasha Reich
lives and works at 7251 Hawkins Road,
Sarasota. Although she is considered a
painter, because she works in resin, some of her
work may be as heavy as works made by
Todd. Todd makes items as small as masks,
bowls and platters and as large as outdoor
murals. Designs range from those inspired by
nature for his ceramics but quite abstract for his
metal sculpture.
Reich's background is as eclectic as her art
work which reflects her European heritage,
travels in Asia and fashion design work in New
York City. Lately she has been working as
something of a chemist and artist, worked with
many media and layers of resin that lead to jewel-
toned painting-like creations which sparkle from
within as much as from the surface and virtually
indestructible.
North of Clark Road are the studios of print
maker Nancy Turner and painter Joseph Melan-
con whose work has evolved so much the past


invited back.
Melancon is as expert in the handling of
watercolor as he is oil. He works on paper, wood
panels and canvas. Four years ago, the work
featured was more dimensional and structured.
These days there is an impressionistic feel to
his work, something he refers to as "interpreted
reality." Works shown the show's preview lun-
cheon featured a palette straight out of nature,
especially wooded areas. His studio is at 3350
Pine Valley.
Turner offers intaglio and collagraph prints,
working most often in black and white. Her studio
is at 1739 Cherokee Drive.
Lunardi's work has been reproduced on the
covers of more than 4,500 magazines throughout
the world. Of Italian parentage and birth, he is
considered a master of the fashion shoot. Like
other famous photographers he is not afraid to
manipulate the images he captures. One recent
work features a woman's face in mirror image. He
uses high contrast and light to achieve a dimen-
sional feel to his work. His studio can be seen at
1855 University Parkway.
In the Ringling gallery tour-goers also can
see works by several Ringling graduates and
teachers. Many works of art are for sale in
the individual studios as well as in the gallery.
Proceeds of the tour and sales enable the Fine
Arts Society to provide outreach grants, schol-
arships and educational programs. One of the
most visible results of the society's fund-raising
efforts is its collection of art by past and pres-
ent Sarasota area artists. The works hang in
the lobby areas of the Van Wezel Performing
Arts Hall in Sarasota. The society is a 501(c)3
non-profit organization.


Tickets are $25 at the door on the days of the
Tour. Advance tickets are $20 per person.
Tickets purchased online before the day of
the tour must be picked up at the student center
at the Ringling College of Art & Design,
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.Way, Sarasota, off
North Tamiami Trail.
That also is the site of a gallery featuring
works by several other area artists, including
work by glass artist Liana Martin of Venice and
fabric artist/designer Linda Tilson of Venice.
Other artists whose work is displayed there
include painters Bob Brown, Elena De la Ville
and Kris Parins; collage artist Sally Sloan; as-
semblage artist and painter Jo Pioetti; fiber artist
Gloria Hall Cropper, jewelry designer Renee J.
Davis; and Plique-a-jour artist Phil Karp. Plique-a-
jour is an ancient technique that gives the effect
of stained class but is made using techniques
similar to those for cloisonne or enamel work but
with a temporary backing which is removed after
firing.
Advance tickets also may be purchased in
Sarasota at the Van Wezel box office, Art Center
Sarasota, Bookstore 1 on Main Street, Dabbert
Gallery, State of the Arts Gallery, Davidson
Drugs (all locations), Square on the Circle at
St. Armands, Exit Art (Chart House & Centre
Shops LBK), The Paper Tree in Southside
Village, Artists on the Court Gallery in Towles
Court), Mail/PAC N FAX at The Plaza at Palmer
Ranch), The Hidden Gate at University Park),
and, outside of Sarasota, at Urban Accents on
Main Street in Lakewood, Art Center Manatee,
Sandra French Studio at Village of the Arts in
Bradenton, and, in Venice at Venice Art Center,
390 S. Nokomis Ave. and Venice Stationers at
211 W. Venice Ave.

PEACE RIVER DISTRIBUTING, INC.
The world-famous Budweiser Clydesdales,
the symbol of quality and tradition for
Anheuser-Busch since 1933, are sched-
uled to make an appearance in Arcadia at the
84th annual Arcadia All-Florida Championship
Rodeo. The eight-horse hitch will be harnessed
and hitched to the famous red beer wagon at the
rodeo on Friday-Sunday.
The "Gentle Giants,' as they are often referred
to, will be available for viewing and photo opportu-
nities throughout the day on the rodeo grounds.
The Clydesdales' appearance in Arcadia is
one of hundreds made annually by the traveling
hitches.
Canadians of Scottish descent brought the
first Clydesdales to America in the mid-1800's.
Today, the giant draft horses are used primarily
for breeding and show. Horses chosen for the
Budweiser Clydesdale hitch must be at least
three years of age, stand approximately 18
hands or six feet at the shoulder, weigh an
average of 2,000 pounds, must be bay in color,
have four white legs, and a blaze of white on
the face and black mane and tail.
A gentle temperament is very important as
hitch horses meet millions of people each
year. Each hitch travels with a Dalmatian. In
the early days of brewing, Dalmatians were bred
and trained to protect the horses and guard
the wagon when the driver went inside to make
deliveries.
America's original sport, the Arcadia All Florida
Championship Rodeo not only brings you the
world renowned Budweiser Clydesdale's all
three days but also brings back, one of rodeo's
finest stock contractor's "The Frontier Rodeo
Company."
Whenever you have one of the top stock
contractors in the industry then you're assured
the best cowboy talent in the world will be present
chomping their lips and teeth at the chance to


Clydesdales will be in

Punta Gorda today
In conjunction with the 2011 Business of the Year,
Peace River Distributing, the Punta Gorda Chamb
of Commerce has been granted an opportunity to
bring two of the world-famous Budweiser Clydesdale
Horses to Punta Gorda today.
The horses will be located at the corner of Marion
Avenue and Taylor in downtown Punta Gorda from
noon until 2 p.m. and will be on hand for photos,
enjoyment and questions of the trainers. There is no
admission fee.

delicious food, drink and desserts and can hear
Nashville recording artist Chris MacArthur and
his Florida Cracker Boys Band perform through-
out the three day rodeo.
Each day, at 1 p.m. experience the rough and
rugged, "Shoot Out" performance inside the
arena, as pistols and shotguns blast aloud and
you're transcended back to a time when dispute
between good and bad settled terms with a
straight shot.
Each day at 2 p.m. the rodeo gets underway.
Spectators will feel pride in community and
country as the American Flag makes its traveled
course around the rodeo arena.You'll be moved
by Chris MacArthur's rendition of the "National
Anthem'" At that point when your sense of pride
is at its pinnacle point, know that, this is exactly
what the Arcadia Rodeo strives to accomplish.
Esteemed pride in one of America's original
sports and their honor to bestow that tradition to
all that make Rodeo a special past time to savor.
Ticket prices are: $15 per person, per day for
adults and $10 per child, per day (ages 11 and
younger).
Tickets are $20 per person, per day for seats in
rows 10 to 20 in sections X andY, rows 5 to 15 in
sections A and F
Tickets at the gate day are $17 per person.

'The Robbers' is long


on story and talent


E .;,iC. March 7-13, 2012


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Friedrich Schiller's "The Robbers" is an
18th century play, which tests the talent of
today's actors even as it must have back
in the 1780s. A new adaptation and translation
by Klaus can den Berg maintains the heavy
Germanic plot lines that pit one brother against
another in a war for the love (and inheritance) of
their father, Count von Moor (Jesse Dornan).
Karl Moore (Christopher Williams) is the older
brother and favorite son. He becomes the
leader of a gang of young people out to right
the wrongs of what they deem a corrupt world
and economic injustices. Franz Moor (Brendan
Ragan) is the classic second child trying to
outdo the firstborn but taken to a cruel extreme.
He would go to any extreme to discredit Karl with
his father in order that he (Franz) would become
the only heir. It is his early success at discredit-
ing Karl that leads Karl to his outlaw band. Karl's
life is further complicated by a gang member
named Spiegelberg (Kelly Campbell) who would
be the leader herself because she feels Karl is
not strong enough for the task. Think Robin Hood
versus Charles Manson with Speigelberg being the
more Manson-like character.
Not only does the evil Franz want the money,
the estate, and the title, he would also take Karl's
fiancee, Amalia (Brittany Proia).
The outlaw band (which also doubles as a rock
band) consists of Kelly Campbell as Spiegelberg,
Joseph McGranaghan as Roller/Daniel, Jacob
Cooper as Grimm/Herrman, Zak Wilson as Sch-
weizer, Lindsay Tornquist as Razman, Francisco


Rodriguez as Schufterle and Erin Whitney as
Schwartz. Sarah Brown portrays the officer, pas-
tor and Moser. Many portray characters one loves
to hate and others that one hates to like let alone
love, yet there is an endearing quality to Karl who
seems to have some innate goodness despite the
rather poor job of parenting he received from his
father, who seems more a man to be pitied rather
than to be revered for his status as a wealthy count.
The play is a perfect training vehicle for the
second-year students at the FSU/Asolo Conser-
vatory of Actor Training. Even the smallest parts
require passionate delivery of the lines while
there also are roles which require no movement
for extended periods of time. Dornan, in particular
must, be statue-like for at least 15 minutes prior
to the play's beginning and again later in Act II.
Proia has a chance to show off her vocal
abilities as a singer and nearly everyone must
demonstrate agility as well as acting ability.
The simplistic modular set design and projec-
tions by Andrew Boyce plus Rick Cannon's light-
ing design drive the story along, adding enough
interest that one barely notices that the first act
is nearly 90 minutes in length and that act two is
about an hour in duration.
David Kennedy directed, with costumes by
Amy Cianci and sound by Steven Lemke.
"The Robbers" is being presented through
Sunday in the Cook Theatre at the FSU Center
for the Performing Arts, 5555 North Tamiami Trail,
Sarasota. Tickets are $27 for matinees and $28
for evening shows. Students with ID get a 50
percent discount for advance purchases. Call the
box office at 941-351-8000.

'My


Fair Lady"


opens


today

PROVIDED BY THE BARBARA B. MANN
PERFORMING ARTS HALL
enry Higgins, Eliza Doolittle and the rest
of the iconic characters from "My Fair
Lady" will transform the Barbara B. Mann
Performing Arts Hall to 1912 London in this
Broadway classic today through Sunday.
Based on George Bernard Shaw's 1912
play "Pygmalion;' "My Fair Lady" will transport
audiences to Edwardian London and one of the
most beautiful stories ever told about language
and clash of cultures. It follows the relationship
between Eliza Doolittle, a Cockney flower girl and
the snobbish and misogynistic Professor Henry
Higgins, a phoneticist, who wagers that he can
turn Eliza into a "proper lady" in three months'
time.
Those who experience "My Fair Lady" will be
enchanted by this tale of triumph of the human
spirit, as well as the love story that emerges
between two unlikely heroes, ultimately joined
together by their fascination with the English
language.
When the show first opened on Broadway in
1956, starring Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews,
critics described it as "legendary" and "one of the
greatest musicals of the century." "My Fair Lady"

Carsten as Henry Higgins, Joyce Bohus as Mrs.
Higgins, Daniel Cardenes as Freddy Eynsford-
Hill, Richard Springle as Colonel Pickering and
Arthur Wise as Alfred P Doolittle.
"My Fair Lady" features includes the classic
songs "The Rain in Spain,' "Wouldn't It Be Lov-
erly" and "Get Me To The Church On Time."
Often called "the perfect musical,' "My Fair Lady"
is an unforgettable experience with beautiful
music and exquisite costumes that will
remind theatre-goers as to why musical
theater was born.

Flying high above Gulf waters


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
If you ever want to be reminded of how gor-
geous the area is that you live in, there is no
better view than from up in the air.
Englewood Parasailing has been offering a
completely unobstructed view of the beautiful
waters off Englewood Beach for the past two
years. Mike Chasse, the manager, has lived in
Englewood for 17 years, after having grown up in
New England.
"I was a lobsterman growing up in Maine,' he
said, "and I always had a job on the water"' Need-
less to say, taking others who also love the water
out on parasailing excursions is the ultimate job
for him.
"We sell fun," Chasse said. "The best part
about this job is making people smile and having
people enjoy themselves. We're a family-oriented
business."
The parasailing experience at Englewood Para-
sailing is not limited to the time you spend in the
air."We go out to Stump Pass and into the Gulf,"
said Chasse. "You'll see lots of dolphins chasing
the boat"' He said that he and his spotter will point
out interesting things along the way out to the
Gulf, providing a little local education.
"When we get out to the Gulf, there will be
some instruction and then the first rider will har-
ness up," he said. "You will leave from the deck
and then just enjoy the view'" He said each rider
stays up in the air for approximately 15 minutes,
and you can ride single, double or triple.
There are a couple of other parasailing places
in the area, but Chasse feels that Englewood
Parasailing offers some great advantages. "We
are the lowest-priced parasailing in town," he said,
"and we're here year-round."
You don't have to have experience to go out

parasailing, and there is no age limit. Chasse
said that he recently had a woman parasail
with him to celebrate her 95th birthday And
as their literature says, "If you can sit, you can
parasail"
Englewood Parasailing is open seven days
a week, with the first boat leaving at 9 a.m. It is
located at 1450 Beach Road in Englewood.

Lock 'N Key Restaurant & Pub


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
With a million dollar view out the front
door and a great outdoor patio from
which to enjoy it, Lock'N Key is a
Manasota Key restaurant experience that is not
to be missed.
For the past 16 years, the Atamanchuk family
has been building something pretty special on
North Beach Road-a family restaurant where
even a tourist coming in off the beach is made to
feel a part of that family.
"Customer service is huge to us,' said
co-owner Susan Atamanchuk. "We get people
out here on the Key who we see every year."
As if on cue, a snowbird walked up to Ataman-
chuk to give her a gift his wife made for her.
They are headed back to Pennsylvania in a
couple of days and weren't sure if they would
get a chance to see her again before they left.
That's just how it is at Lock'N Key-the lines
between employees, customers and family are
a little blurred, because really, they are one and
the same. "We are a family-owned restaurant
and we employ 67 people,' said Atamanchuk.
"My bartender and our head chef and his brother
have been here longer than me. My husband and
I are the core of this restaurant, but our staff is
the heart of it"'
So what is it besides an award-winning
friendly staff that keeps bringing locals, snowbirds
and tourists back to the Lock'N Key time and
time again? For the most part, it would have to
be the delicious, reasonably-priced food. "The


Grouper Rocket is one of our biggest hits," Ata-
manchuk said," and we now have the Rocket
burger'"
The grouper Rocket, named after Ataman-
chuk's husband Rocket, is a fried grouper
sandwich, served with melted Swiss cheese,
Thousand island dressing and cole slaw on
grilled rye bread. The Rocket burger is com-
prised of one half pound of fresh ground beef,
topped with shrimp, andouille smoked sausage,
cheddar cheese and adobo cilantro sauce.
With its proximity to the Gulf, you can count
on a large selection of fresh seafood on Lock'N
Key's menu. "Our snapper provencal is very popu-
lar,' said Atamanchuk. "We run that as a special
every Friday night and it's a sellout. We get six
fresh fish deliveries in every week'"
Not in the mood for seafood or a burger?
The restaurant has something special for red
meat enthusiasts.'We are known for our cowboy
steak," Atamanchuk said. "It's a big 24 ounce
ribeye"' Something else they are known for is
making their own salad dressings (10 in all), des-
serts and breads.
The separate bar area is cozy, but sports six
flatscreen TVs. "We have all the sport pack-
ages," said Atamanchuk. "All the tourists who
come down here want to see their team."The
sound is kept down so as not to disturb the
diners in the next room, but that doesn't mean
Lock 'N Key is a stuffy kind of restaurant. On
the contrary, it's a friendly, happy place where
the diners hug the waitresses, the bartenders
become your instant friend and you can enjoy live

Chef Sandra Ruhland:


Sandra's Restaurant


BY BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Sandra's Restaurant on Olympia Avenue
just opened in December to bring some-
thing new and different to Punta Gorda.
Chef Sandra Ruhland cooks up not just her
favorite German dishes but a wide assortment of
European dishes as well.
Appetizers range from a French pizza tarte
to antipasti to bratwurst. Entrees range from
goulash to pork or veal schnitzel to salmon in
Riesling sauce. Both lunch and dinner offer a
selection of authentic Italian pastas served in
European fashion, which means the pasta and
sauce are mixed together.
"The salmon, schnitzels, homemade German
potato salad and red cabbage are customer fa-
vorites,' said Ruhland, "and also the tarte flambe
and the salads'" Sandra's is a great place to find
German beer and wine as well as other imported
varieties.
Most dishes are accompanied by special
German bread. "It's made with German flour that
makes the bread not quite so soft; it's very differ-
ent,' said Ruhland.
Sandra's menu also includes what she calls
"Sizzling Skillets'" Grilled feta cheese, spaghetti
scampi, German spatzle, or sizzling veggies
are served in a very hot pan. For dessert there's


apfelstrudel, mousse au chocolate, and vanilla
ice cream with hot raspberry sauce. Both the
lunch and dinner menus are supplemented with
specials that change every day.
Much of Sandra's food is made using family
recipes. Sandra does most of the cooking, and
her husband Rainer is the general manager.
Rainer also helps in the kitchen when he's
needed.
The couple had been coming to Punta Gorda
for about six years before deciding to make it
their new home. They previously owned a cater-
ing company in Germany for 10 years, catering
for Porsche motor sports events. 'We sometimes
catered for 6,000 people," said Ruhland.
While the restaurant's dinner crowd isn't quite
that large, its reputation has grown through word-
of-mouth.
People in the area who are German or just like
German food are happy to have a place to go
that serves authentic German food. Others are
pleased to see the variety of international dishes
on the menu.
In addition to cooking for the restaurant, Chef
Sandra has catered for the Punta Gorda Cham-
ber of Commerce, Taste of Punta Gorda, and
other events, and is available for catering orders
of all sizes.
Sandra's is located at 111 W. Olympia Ave.,


Sandra Ruhland, chef, and Rainer Ruhland, general manager of Sandra's Restaurant in Punta
Gorda, serve authentic German food and a wide variety of European dishes too.

list of movies playing in theaters.


BY ROGER MOORE
MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE
J ohn Carter' is a sci-fi epic made watchable
by swell effects, passable performances
and those little dashes of humor that
reassure us that the filmmakers know this is all
a lark no matter what the budget. It begins as
a Western, veers into sci-fi, and finally finds its
footing as a blend of those, with a dash of sword
and sorcery a Confederate cavalryman slash-
ing and hacking beasties and baddies all over
the dusty, dying Red Planet in the years just after
America's Civil War.
Edgar Rice Burroughs, who wrote the "John
Carter of Mars" stories, appears as a character
here, a young would-be writer (Daryl Sabara of
"Spy Kids") reading the journal of his late uncle
(Taylor Kitsch), a swarthy, two-fisted Civil War
vet searching for gold out West who stumbled
instead into another Civil War this one a
thousand years old and millions of miles away.
This one's taking place on Mars, which is where
John Carter wakes up and asks, "Where the
hell am I?"
He's landed in the end game of the Martian
Civil War, when two cities -Helium and the
mobile city of Zodanga grinding from place to
place on a gigantic crawler are about to have
their final battle. Shape shifting pan-dimensional
beings (led by Mark Strong) have set up Zodanga
(led by Dominic West) to deflate Helium (led by
Ciaran Hinds).
The armies are clad in gear borrowed from


the ancient Romans and flit about in huge, fragile
solar-powered flying galleys. There's the scientist-
Princess Dejah (Lynne Collins, who wears the
obligatory alien-princess-bare-midriff look well)
about to be forcibly married off to Sab Than
(West) to bring peace.
Unless Carter, who has swagger and great
leaping abilities on the lower gravity of Mars -
intervenes. Of course, first he has to get away
from the Tharks, four-armed green nomads who
stand 12 feet tall and practice a Spartan brand of
warrior culture, musket-armed cavalry who admire
nothing so much as a good battle. They brand
each other over any offense to the community and
practice infanticide.
"John Carter" is hampered by the staggering
amount of exposition that this "introduction of the
myth" installment must take care of races,
tribes, names, religions, Martian science about
"The Ninth Ray." Burroughs, who gained his
greatest fame inventing "Tarzan of the Apes,"
more than gets his due as a writer who envi-
sioned a parallel world in this cinematic blend of
hi-tech and retro-costuming, a world with an end-
less civil war, racism and religious mumbo jumbo.
It's a popcorn movie, not to be taken any more
seriously than "Clash of the Titans" and its ilk.
But even by those standards, "John Carter" is a
bit of a slog characters and relationships and
conflicts and plot devices to keep track of, none
of them worth the brain power you spend sorting
them out. But Kitsch & Co. make the time pass
pleasantly enough.


John Carter (PG-13)
The film tells the story of war-weary,
former military captain John Carter
(Taylor Kitsch), who is inexplicably
transported to Mars where he
becomes reluctantly embroiled in a
conflict of epic proportions amongst
the inhabitants of the planet,
including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe)
and the captivating Princess Dejah
Thoris (Lynn Collins).
Silent House (R)
Silent House is a uniquely unsettling


horror thriller starring Elizabeth Olsen
as Sarah, a young woman who finds
herself sealed inside her family's
secluded lake house. With no contact
to the outside world, and no way out,
panic turns to terror to terror.

A Thousand Words (PG-13)
After stretching the truth on a deal
with a spiritual guru, literary agent Jack
McCall finds a Bodhi tree on his prop-
erty. Its appearance holds a valuable
lesson on the consequences of every
word we speak

*0REX MORGAN By
Implications of the REX MORA B
rapid* inrf f hTON
rapid increase of PSA


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
Of interest to all men are
PSA numbers. I am 90,
and my number went
from 4.6 to 5.1 in three
months. My doctor insists
I see a urologist. I have
no symptoms of prostate
trouble, and this really
has me upset. I am at a
breaking point. H.L.
ANSWER: PSA, prostate
specific antigen, is a blood
test for the detection of
prostate cancer. Experts
argue about what value to
choose to indicate a posi-
tive test result that is,
at what level the test truly
indicates cancer. Many
set four as that number.
However, lower numbers
are more meaningful at
younger ages and higher
numbers at older ages. In
fact, many would stop test-
ing for PSA in a man who's
90 years old.
Let me give you some
more numbers and infor-
mation that will only add
to your grief.
If the PSA test increases
by 0.75 in one year, that's
a significant increase
that would trigger some
doctors to ask for more
testing. If the original PSA
was 4, then an increase of
0.35 in one year would do
the same.
All of this testing is
contested at the pres-
ent moment. You are 90.
Many feel that this age is
too old to demand that a
man submit to more test-
ing, like a biopsy. Others
feel that if a man of 90 is
in good health, that man
should be offered further
investigation.
If I were in your shoes, I
wouldn't hesitate to hear
what a urologist had to say.
I might, however, decline
to seek more testing and
the prospects of an opera-
tion. In truth, since I am
not that age, I'm not posi-
tive how I would react.
The booklet on pros-
tate cancer and prostate
enlargement gives further
information on these
conditions. Readers can
obtain a copy by writing:
Dr. Donohue No. 1001,
Box 536475, Orlando, FL
32853-6475. Enclose a
check or money order (no
cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6.

printed name and ad-
dress. Please allow four
weeks for delivery.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I
have a lot of problems with
sinus infections. I had si-
nus surgery about 10 years
ago. At that time, my ENT
doctor said I had pockets
of infection in the sinus
cavities. He performed
surgery to clean the pock-
ets. For a few years I had
ooo

fewer infections, but they
are a problem again. The
only antibiotic that clears
the infection is Avelox. The
most recent infection does
not seem to be responding
to Avelox. Can you offer
any advice? -Anon.
ANSWER: It's time to
again consult an ENT
- ear, nose and throat
doctor. Such a doctor
has a scope that allows
inspection of the sinuses
for detection of chronic
infection. It also allows
the doctor to sample
tissue for culture so the
infecting germ can be
identified and tested for
antibiotic susceptibility.
That way, the doctor will
know what to prescribe.
And if the lab is alerted,
it can test for the germ's
susceptibility to Avelox.
That's the best advice I
can come up with.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
Some medicines, like the
calcium-channel blocker
nifedipine, bear a warn-
ing to avoid eating grape-
fruit while taking them.
However, they never give
an explanation why. Will
you? E.N.
ANSWER: Grapefruit
interferes with some
medicine by block-
ing body enzymes that
degrade those medicines.
That, in turn, leads to
higher blood levels of
those medicines. It also
could lead to toxic effects
of those drugs when their
blood levels rise too high.
The effect lasts for 24
hours, so you cannot
overcome it by eating
grapefruit in the morning
and taking the medicine
at night. This applies to
grapefruit juice as well as
grapefruit.
I have to believe that
warnings of such interac-
tions are included in the
information that comes
with all prescription
drugs.
Dr Donohue regrets that
he is unable to answer in-
dividual letters, but he will
incorporate them in his
column whenever possible.
Readers may write him or
request an order form of
available health newslet-
ters at PO. Box 536475,
Orlando, FL 32853-6475.

1EVER ASKS
AE WHERE
"'P LIKE
To Go.


Dear Heloise: A hint
that I do when I'm doing a
lot of baking: When some-
thing uses several eggs,
I steal an egg white and
freeze it to use later in
something, like divinity,
that uses only the whites.
- Helen in Madison, Ala.
Helen, this is a useful
hint. Readers, here's how
to freeze your egg whites:
Break and separate your
eggs, making sure there
is NO yolk in the whites.
Place the egg whites in
a freezer-safe container.
Make sure to label the
number of whites and the
date. You even can freeze
individual egg whites in
an ice-cube tray and then
transfer to a larger con-
tainer. Use the thawed egg
whites in dishes that you
are cooking. Heloise

Removing odors
Dear Readers: There are
many different hints you
have sent in through the
years about removing on-
ion odor from your hands.
Here's a sample of what
we have received:
Rub your hands on
anything in your kitchen
that is made of stainless
steel.
Wash your hands with
shaving cream.
Rub salt over your
hands and rinse with cold
water.
Place a small dab of
toothpaste on your
fingertips, rub and rinse.
Use lemon, vinegar or
a sprinkle of baking soda
in your hands to scrub,
and then rinse! Heloise


Hints from Heloise

Storing potatoes
Dear Heloise: What
is the best way to store
potatoes? Erin M.,
Hammond, Ind.
There are several hints
for storing potatoes. The
United States Potato
Board states that potatoes
should be kept in a cool
(45-55 degrees Fahren-
heit), ventilated space.
Keep them out of bright
light, and don't wash
them before storing.
Potatoes stored at room
temperature will last a week
or so, but in a paper bag or
perforated plastic bag, the
shelf life will be longer.
Do not store pota-
toes in the refrigerator!
The starch in the potato
converts to sugar, and the
green on the skin is a re-
action to too much light.
Cut away slight greening
before cooking. Heloise

Easy cut
Dear Heloise: Using a
round nylon or plastic pizza
cutter does a good job of
cutting brownies and does
not leave a mark on the pan,
like a metal knife might.

Forgiveness can bring love

into a world of uncertainty


DEAR ABBY: Several
years ago you printed
a poem about forgive-
ness in your column. It
described very well the
benefits of the practice,
and it was accompanied
by a sort of "forgiveness
schedule" for every day of
the week.
I clipped the column
and saved it, but over
time I seem to have lost it.
Could you please run this
piece again? DANIELA
IN TORONTO
DEAR DANIELA: I'm
glad to oblige. The poem
you have requested,
"Decide to Forgive," was
written by the late Rob-
ert Muller, former assis-
tant secretary-general of
the United Nations. Now,
with so much turmoil
going on in the nation
and in the world, its sen-
timents are particularly
relevant.
This poem is part of
a collection of letters,
poems and essays that are
collected in my booklet
"Keepers" because so
many Dear Abby readers
had clipped them and
continue to request that
they be reprinted. Here
is the poem you have
requested:

Decide to forgive
Decide to forgive
For resentment is
negative
Resentment is poisonous
Resentment diminishes
and devours the self.
Be the first to forgive,
To smile and to take the
first step
And you will see
happiness bloom
On the face of your
human brother or sister.
Be always the first
Do not wait for others
to forgive
For by forgiving
You become the master
of fate
The fashioner of life
A doer of miracles.
To forgive is the highest,
Most beautiful form of
love.
In return you will
receive
Untold peace and
happiness.
And here is the program
for achieving a truly
forgiving heart:


Dear Abby

SUNDAY: Forgive
yourself.

MONDAY: Forgive your
family.

TUESDAY: Forgive your
friends and associates.

WEDNESDAY: Forgive
across economic lines
within your own nation.

THURSDAY: Forgive
across cultural lines
within your own nation.

FRIDAY: Forgive across
political lines within your
own nation.

SATURDAY: Forgive
other nations.

Only the brave know
how to forgive. A coward
never forgives.
It is not in his nature.

Since I cannot reprint
the continual avalanche
of requests I receive for
reprints, for those who
desire them, my "Keepers"
booklet can be ordered
by sending your name
and mailing address, plus
check or money order for
$7 (U.S. funds) to: Dear
Abby Keepers Booklet,
PO. Box 447, Mount Mor-
ris, IL 61054-0447. Ship-
ping and handling are in-
cluded in the price. Many
people have told me it
makes a welcome gift for
newlyweds, new parents,
animal lovers, those who
are grieving, and anyone
who is recovering from
an illness because it's a
quick and easy read, and
filled with wisdom and
humor on a wide variety
of topics.
Dear Abby is written by
Abigail Van Buren, also
known as Jeanne Phillips,
and was founded by her
mother Pauline Phillips.

Venice Gondolier readers: Look for the puzzle solution in the Our Town section.


I HOROSCOPE I
ARIES (March 21-April 19).Yourwill is strong,
and what you want may indeed be what is best
for everyone. However, you must be careful not to
overpower others with the intensity of your passion.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).The games you choose
are hard enough on their own, so there's no need to
put up with team members who drag you down.
Seek those who are warm, supportive and positive.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Multitasking will prove
to be generally a rotten idea except in the instances


making phone calls while you walk an unpopulated
stretch of track or sidewalk.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You'll act to exert your
authority and have a meaningful impact.You may
spend a good deal oftime working out how you
might alter the behavior and thinking of others.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If you're feeling discouraged,
you'll rely too much on outer forces to shape your
path. Make sure that you're feeling up and enthusi-
astic before you ever leave the house.
VIRGO (Aug.23-Sept. 22).You'll go into the day


of listening to audio books while traveling or with a take-charge attitude, and you'll use your
ooo


knowledge to alter your circumstances. Your
winner's mindset is unstoppable.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). As much as you may try
to avoid being the center of attention today, the
eyeballs will still be trained on you. It has to be this


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You won't have
time to be very self-conscious, because you're so
focused on experiencing all you can in one day.You
may even dare to sing solo in public.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.19). You're likely to put


way because you know what you're doing and you more emphasis on substance than form. A lovely
need to teach others. package will draw you in. But you won't stay"in"i
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).You'll be aware of how there's nothing compelling inside it.
social conditioning shapes behavior.The one who is AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).You may be con-
trying hard to live up to an image of independence cerned about being criticized or judged harshly, bi
may really need your help.Your compassion helps it doesn't keep you from putting your best work ou
you see the truth, there for all to see.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).You'll be inspired by
a person who really seems to have it all together.
You're already planning your future involvement
with this person, whether or not you realize it.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 7).Though a playful-
ness dominates your energy this year, make no
mistake: You still get plenty of serious business
accomplished.You'll purposefully execute new
facets of your will through the next 10 weeks.The
cast of characters in your personal life changes a bit
in May. Libra and Scorpio people adore you.Your
lucky numbers are:7, 20,1,50 and 19.

SOUTH WEST

NORTH EAST
3NT Pass


Opening lead: Six of 4

You are declarer at a reasonable
contract of three no trump, and you
receive the lead of the six of clubs.
You play low from dummy at trick
one and East plays the queen. How


do you intend to come to nine tricks?
That's easy three spades, two or
three hearts, two diamonds and two
clubs could score an overtrick.
Yes, but how do you intend playing
the hand? Suppose you win the club
and lead a diamond to start setting up
two tricks in the suit. East wins and
returns a club and, no matter how you
continue, when West gains the lead
he can cash three clubs to go with the
two diamonds already banked -
down one.
By now you should have gotten the
hang of things despite the fact that
you have two stoppers in the suit,
refuse to win the first trick. Win the
club return and now start the
diamonds. If West wins, he has no
entry to his clubs. If he allows East to
win, then West, who needs two
entries to set up and run the clubs, has
only one. Declarer scores nine tricks
before the opponents can take five.
