City ends 'discriminatory' deposit policy


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Residents will pay slightly
higher utilities but get relief in
the form of lower water/sewer
deposits for those with a good
payment history.
That's the upshot of an ordi-
nance adopted on first reading
Tuesday. Final reading is in
two weeks.
As anticipated, council
adopted the 3 percent annual
water/sewer rate increase
after an exhaustive rate study.
The increase could be as
little as $2.03 for a residential


customer using 3,000 gallons
per month.
New to the discussion this
week was Council Member
Bob Daniels' proposal to elimi-
nate what he called a discrimi-
natory policy in which renters
pay a $350 utilities deposit
while homeowners pay $125.
Council amended the
utilities ordinance to elimi-
nate any distinction between
homeowner and renter.
Instead, each utilities "user"
will pay a $125 deposit.
And only if they are unable
to provide a letter of credit
from their former or current


utility. Those with good pay-
ment histories will get their
deposit back. Those who miss
a payment, or don't have a
good payment history, will
have to abide by the $125
deposit. Details have yet to be
worked out.
"I've received a lot of phone
calls from homeowners, rent-
ers and landlords, and some
have testified about the unfair-
ness of our deposit system,"
Daniels said. "I am not a fan
of losing money on anything.
I understand why we made
the policy because we have
some people flee without


paying ... but this is only fair."
He pointed out Venice is the
only city in the vicinity that
distinguishes between renters
and homeowners.
North Port, he said, requires
no deposit. Sarasota requires
a $150 deposit for owners or
renters, with a refund in 12
months as credit toward their
bill for a good payment history.
He also pointed out Florida
Power & Light and TECO Gas
require the same deposit for
either user group.
Some council members were
annoyed with the proposal
because they had seen it only


that morning and didn't have
time to digest it.
Council Emilio Carlesimo
wanted to see the financial
analysis that showed it
wouldn't lose money.
Council Member Dave Sher-
man voted against the amend-
ment for those reasons.
Tim Smolarick sparked
discussion on the issue a few
months ago after he moved
to Venice as new publisher
of the Venice Gondolier Sun.
He rented a home and was
surprised at the city's deposit

Dolphins, sea turtles




coming to downtown

BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Remember those pot-bel-
lied pig statues strategically
stationed around downtown,
amusing residents and
encouraging visitors?
They are about to be super-
seded by more handsome
dolphins and turtles in the
latest business and fundrais-
ing campaign byVenice Art
Center.
Seven years later, "Sea
Venice" starts this fall, featur-
ing lovable dolphins and sea
turtles making their debut
downtown, announced Paul
Moseley, chairman of the mar-
keting team of Mary Morris
and Susan and Ron Cairo. The
plan is to launch this exciting


two-year project to include
a kickoff event, sponsors
celebration, sea-fest and an
eventual auction.
Designed to promote the
city, business and stimulate
tourism, Moseley said the
project will follow the prin-
ciples of the Pigs in Paradise
campaign he previously
chaired.
Forty sponsored dolphins
and turtles painted by local
artists will be strategically
located around the city.
In his backyard, Venice
Mayor John Holic has the
original pig bought by AG
Edwards, named Pigmillion,
decorated from Wall Street
to Main Street and used for
several years in group office
photographs.


"I think Sea Venice is a
wonderful idea. The pigs went
over big and we are not an
agricultural community. Sea
sculptures will make a lovely
decoration and are perfect for
a city by the sea," he said.
The sea turtles and dolphins
are made of Fiberglas, are
6 feet tall and will be named
by the sponsor, who selects
the artist and design. When
painted they are lacquered,
and a plaque naming the
sponsor will be fitted to the
sculpture, which will be firmly
fixed to a concrete slab for
attachment to the pavement
on a crosswalk for a minimum
$2,500 donation to the cam-
paign fund.

City adopts human rights ordinance


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Venice City Council adopted
a human rights ordinance
Tuesday.
Council Member Emilio
Carlesimo pushed the issue
and apologized for it taking so
long to get passed.
"When we voted unani-
mously to do so, it was so all


our citizens would feel safe
and comfortable living here,"
Carlesimo said. "I'm just sorry
it took 17 months to do, but
I'm grateful. It's a big step for-
ward for all our citizens."
Carlesimo made it known
he was unhappy with the
delay and questioned the city
attorney, who said it took that
long because of other city
priorities.


Council first gave direction
to draft the ordinance back in
October 2010 at the behest of
former council member Ernie
Zavodnyik, following a series
of incidents, including a gay
Rutgers student suicide and
the beatings in the Bronx of a
gay man.
"I have no concern of the

Exception for



church approved


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

A revised plan for a special
exception, allowing First Bap-
tist Church of Venice to build
a place of worship and ball
fields, was approved unani-
mously Tuesday by county
commissioners.
The plan, for property south
of Interstate 75 and east of
Jacaranda Boulevard in Venice,
is different from the one pro-
posed previously, which was
addressed during a lengthy
January public hearing. Some
residents of the nearby Blue
Heron Pond subdivision
oppose the plan.
First Baptist Church's pro-
posal for the property includes
- as part of a second campus
- a worship center, education
center and athletic fields.
Neighbors' concerns had
included noise, lighting, traffic,
hours of operation and their
negative impact on prop-
erty values. Church officials
committed to working with
subdivision residents on
changes. One significant revi-
sion was moving the ball fields
further away from the 100-unit
community.
The motion commissioners


approved Tuesday included
a stipulation requiring the
church to place plantings atop
a berm, to screen the residents'
view of the property.
"We feel like we've compro-
mised tremendously," said
Greg Roberts, the church's
attorney.
As in January, a number of
people spoke Tuesday.
"Blue Heron Pond was very
glad to hear that the church
wanted to help us by flipping
the plan and having the ball
fields farther away," Irene Pin-
ski said. "We really appreciate
that."
Dan Lobeck, attorney for the
Blue Heron Pond homeown-
ers association, called moving
the ball fields "the first step
toward achieving compatibil-
ity. It's never been our position
that that is the entire step that
needs to be done. "
Some people had sent
emails on the issue to county
commissioners.
"My husband Mark and
I strongly support the First
Baptist Church's plans for
building a place of worship
and recreational facilities for
the youth of Sarasota County,"

School Board challenges consultant's findings


By STEVEN J. SMITH
SUN CORRESPONDENT

At a Tuesday workshop, the
Sarasota County School Board
examined and, in some cases,
challenged results of a recent
$114,500 efficiency study -
underwritten by citizens group
Citizens for Academic Success
and Excellence performed by
consulting firm MGT of America.
Although MGT's study identi-
fied some $23 million in savings
over the next five years in such
areas as Educational Service
Delivery, Facility Use and Man-
agement, and Human Resources,
the School Board maintained it
already was going down many
avenues outlined in the study
and found few improvements
it has not already considered -
and in some cases, rejected.
"I know that what you've
heard is two hours of why we
can't do any of this stuff," board
member Frank Kovach told the
small group assembled at the
workshop. "I think the reality is
that we're going to have to do
some of this stuff. I'm sure we
won't do all of it."


The School Board made the
main focus of its meeting MGT
recommendations that would
have a fiscal impact for next
year. The first was to negotiate
a reduction in the employment
days for teacher's aides from
196 to 186. MGT estimated that
would save about $900,000
annually, while the School
Board staff came in with a more
conservative estimate of about
$750,000. School Superinten-
dent Lori White said the impacts
of such a measure would: create
the need for extra duty days
during preplanning for select
staff; hamper planning time
and collaboration; and result in
a loss of professional-develop-
ment opportunities and a loss
of media aid services.
Another MGT recommenda-
tion was to evaluate ongoing
opportunities for additional
staff reduction through attrition
and position consolidation. One
particular reduction could result
in a savings of about $50,000.
White was somewhat critical of
that recommendation.
"The fewer people you have,
it becomes more difficult,"


White said. "We always looked
at reduced service levels and
there is a real challenge that
we all take personally in our
departments, so everything
will be done to not have those
reduced service levels."
Board member Carol Todd
agreed.
"I think we spend very fru-
gally, and I think that's a direct
result of the staff we have in
place," Todd said. "While we
might be able to save $50,000
there, in the scheme of our bud-
get which is $375-some mil-
lion dollars it may not be that
many dollars. I'm concerned
here that a long-term cut may
be a cost to the district."
MGT next suggested the
elimination of 86 portables each
year over the next five years,
saying the district has capacity
for current enrollment without
portables, except in certain
schools. The district has 487
portables currently, with a utili-
zation rate of under 70 percent.
It would cost about $22,000 to
demolish the portables, coun-
tered with a five-year net sav-
ings of almost $4 million.


Once again, White had prob-
lems with MGT's assessment.
"Classrooms that I have at
Heron Creek don't help me
where I need some classrooms
at (another school)," White
said. "Unless you did huge
redistricting to try and make
that match, it's not as easy as it
seems."
White added 282 portables
are essential to school opera-
tion. Some portables could be
removed, she said, saving the
district utility costs of about
$1,400 per unit per year, and the
target for the 2012-13 school
year is to remove 25 of them.
MGT also estimated the school
district could save $155,000 per
year if a cleaning-supplies bud-
get was established.
Another recommendation
was to reduce one administra-
tive position in transportation,
eliminating the coordinating
route supervisor position by
attrition and placing routing
technicians under the supervi-
sor of transportation, resulting
in a savings of about $70,000.
Possible ramifications of this
move could be slower response


times to parents, schools and
drivers with issues on buses.
One recommendation that
circled the School Board's wag-
ons was a suggestion to study
the impact on elementary
school programs if state fund-
ing sees more significant reduc-
tions. This could reduce the
number of physical education,
music and art staff positions by
12.5 full-time equivalents, forc-
ing teachers of core subjects to
take over those classes.
"This does not work," White
said. "We tried this before and
there was a decrease in the
quality of instruction in those
areas. Plus, it places an unfair
demand on those teachers."
MGT also said a 10 percent
reduction of classes with fewer
than 15 students, which would
eliminate nine positions, saves
about $635,000.
"The budget that we're going
to present next Tuesday in
terms of what the gap is will
already have us tightening
this," White said. "But I'd like to
work at better scheduling our
classes so that we don't have
those smaller classes."


County's bed tax revenues surge, gas tax receipts slip


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

SARASOTA COUNTY- Gas tax
collection is down while the tour-
ist development tax is up, com-
pared to budgeted projections, a
Sarasota County official said.
As Sarasota County commis-
sioners prepare to gather for a
Wednesday budget workshop,


gas tax revenues are tracking at
3.3 percent less than the $567,223
budgeted for the current fiscal
year, while bed tax revenue is
coming in 22.2 percent above
the budgeted $2,939,580 through
February, said Steve Botelho,
chief financial planning officer.
The bed tax data shows "the
county's investment in tourism
marketing is really paying off,"


Sarasota Convention and Visi-
tors Bureau president Virginia
Haley said. "It allowed us to
capitalize on the No. 1 beach
designation (Siesta Beach) and
to run our first television ad
campaign in 10 years."
Meanwhile, General Fund
revenue is coming in at 1.5 per-
cent above the amended budget
(which is $246.3 million), all


major revenues are tracking at
3.7 percent above the adopted
operating budget ($559 mil-
lion) and utility revenues
(through January) are coming
in at 5.1 percent above budget
($28.3 million).
"Overall, revenues look very
stable," Botelho said. "Our big-
gest variances are the strong
TDT collections and the weak


gas tax revenues. Our gas tax
revenues are the biggest con-
cern and we are closely moni-
toring this revenue stream."
Botelho added that staff
also is finalizing the county's
revenue forecasts for fiscal year
2012-13 "and will use ample
caution where needed, particu-
larly with the gas tax revenue
forecast, due to the volatility."

Former Iran hostage to speak


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER
One of the 52 Ameri-
cans held hostage by a
group of Iranian stu-
dents at the American
embassy in Tehran for
444 days from 1979 to
1981 will be a featured
speaker at an upcoming
meeting of the Nokomis
Osprey Venice Area
Republican Club.
Cortland Barnes, then
a 35-year-old com-
munications specialist


from Falls
Church,
Va., will tell
his story
beginning
at 7 p.m.
March 31 at
the Venice-
Nokomis BARNES
Elks Lodge,
1021 DiscoveryWay, Ven-
ice. Doors open at 6 p.m.
"What he's going to
relate is his experiences
from those days being
held by the Iranians, and
the future of Iran and the


Middle East," said Frank
Patti, vice president of
NOVA. "This is a once-in-
a-lifetime thing."
Barnes studied politi-
cal science at Miami-
Dade Junior College and
attended the University
of Mississippi before
joining the U.S. Navy as a
communications techni-
cian. He was assigned to
naval security in Japan.
Upon his release
from active duty,
Barnes began a 25-year
career in the Central


Intelligence Agency,
where he held assign-
ments in Vietnam,
Cambodia and the
Philippines.
Barnes was posted to
the American embassy
in Iran in October 1979.
One month later, after
Iranian revolutionar-
ies seized the embassy,
Barnes began his days in
captivity.
Upon retirement from
the CIA, Barnes worked
on satellite communi-
cations for Lockheed


Martin. He later served
as a consultant to the
federal government.
Highlights of his career
in the intelligence com-
munity include:
Formulation of an
emergency communica-
tions network during the
Desert Shield and Desert
Storm crises.
Development of a
major multi-agency com-
munications software
system.
Communications sup-
port for Nicaragua after


the earthquake there.
Support to Middle
East facilities during the
1973 Arab-Israeli War.
Serving as the first
manager of the Crisis
Communications Center.
Admission is $10. To

Spring Break safety reminders


The Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office wants to
remind residents and
visitors to keep safety
in mind as they enjoy
Spring Break.
While relaxing at area
hotels, beaches and local
entertainment establish-
ments, here are some
tips to remember:
Lock the doors and
windows at your place of
lodging.
Don't leave valuables
in your hotel room. Lock
them in a safe if possible.
Always carry wallets,
purses, room and car keys
securely. Keep your room
key in a safe place on your
person when at the hotel
pool, bar or dining room.
*When crossing the
street, watch out for
traffic.
*When driving, obey
the speed limit and
watch for pedestrians.
Lock your vehicle at
all times when parked
and when traveling in it.
Keep valuables out
of sight at all times. Lock
them in the trunk, glove
box or console. Covering
them with a blanket or
clothing does not deter
criminals.
*While at the beach,
never leave valuables
unattended.
Never go out alone
and don't ever leave with
a stranger.
Be observant. Report
any suspicious activ-
ity to law enforcement,
security officers or hotel
managers.
Don't advertise your
plans to strangers.
If you're going to
drink alcohol, don't con-
sume too much.
Don't leave drinks
unattended or accept
an open drink from a
stranger.
Don't drink and drive.
Heeding these warn-
ings will help everyone


I POLICE BEAT

Ten years of success continues at Twin Palms


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Success sums up the
10-year progress of Ven-
ice chiropractor Dr. Dan
Busch, who came from
Detroit, earned his doc-
torate in Atlanta, then
started Twin Palms Chi-
ropractic from scratch in
2001.
"I was a one-man
show when we started
and now we are up to 17
employees, four doc-
tors, six massage thera-
pists and support staff,"
said Busch who in 2008
employed 10 people, two
full-time doctors and two
massage therapists with
supporting staff.
That year he acquired
the retail strip center
East Side Plaza built in
the early '70s on East
Venice Avenue across
from Montgomery Car-
pets. Construction teams
undertook the $200,000
rebuild and renovation. It
was renamed Twin Palms
Plaza, 808 E. Venice Ave.,
with Busch relocating his
Twin Palms Chiropractic
Health Center into one of
the 10 units.
His plans for major
growth following the
move have matured
and now he continues

as leader of the team,
a Certified Chiroprac-
tic Extremity Adjustor
treating injuries, reha-
bilitation of extremities,
disc conditions and
permanent impairment
injuries.
The team's newest
service is providing
lymphatic drainage ses-
sions to rejuvenate white


blood cells, stimulate the
liver, pancreas, improve
digestion and fight body
diseases.
Colleague Dr. Erene
Romanski, a chiropractic
physician specializes
in cervical toggle recoil
techniques, nutritional
consultation and test-
ing, and the correction of
spinal misalignment.


Dr. Bobbi-Jo Don-
ner, D.C., a chiropractic
physician, has a heavy
emphasis on nutrition
and whiplash injuries
and treatment.
Running a New Jersey
practice before joining
the team, chiroprac-
tic physician Dr. Eric
Barbera focuses in the
field of personal injury,


workers compensation
and family care work-
ing with orthopedists,
neurologists and general
practitioners.
Also a specialist in
nutrition and wellness,
Bill Jacques, MHH, LMT,
an advanced myofascial
release therapist and
consultant, has provided
bioenergetic evaluations


for more than 29 years.
"An absolutely huge
need exists in Venice
with people becoming
more educated about
their health care and
turning to chiropractic,"
said Busch. "Because the
population in Venice is
very prone to disc inju-
ries or low-back, neck
and shoulder problems
they are realizing very
successful alternatives to
surgery exist. Surgeons
know there is a time and
place for surgery, but
they are recognizing the
difference too."
"I realize it is a blessing
to be doing what I am
supposed to be doing. It
is a lot of hard work and
effort, but it has paid off
and I have been lucky it
has come easy, because
I am doing what I am so
happy doing and what I
enjoy," he said.
The intention when
he moved was to use
one unit. In three years
they expanded into three
and if the opportunity
presents itself they could
continue expanding. In
the future as it grows
Busch said he would love
to bring in some physical
therapy and other things.

Water district panel: Don't sell local land


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

Three area tracts were
spared Wednesday when
a subcommittee of the
Southwest Florida Water
Management District
Governing Board heard
comments from the pub-
lic and voted on which of
the district's lands should
be sold.
The subcommittee
voted to not recommend
selling the Prairie/
Shell Creek Project,
the Myakka River-
Schewe Tract and the
Lower Peace River


Corridor-Deep Creek
Preserve.
A brief look at each
property:
Prairie/Shell Creek
Project 610 acres near
the Peace River in Char-
lotte County. This area
is considered a critical
scrub jay habitat that has
had a history of adequate
land management.
Charles Lee, director of
advocacy for Audubon of
Florida, said it would be
inappropriate to divide
the property and sell a
portion of it. One woman,
a writer-photographer
who opposed selling the


property, said she had
been in Prairie/Shell
Creek on Monday and
Tuesday, photographing
scrub jays and the scrub
habitat. She praised the
district staff for its man-
agement of the property.
Another speaker called
this property "the magnet
of the area."
Myakka River-Schewe
Tract 3,993 acres
in Sarasota County. A
district official called this
property "an integral part
of a public landholding
corridor." The property,
which bifurcates Inter-
state 75 and includes


Deer Prairie Creek, is
maintained under a
management agreement
with Sarasota County.
In the southern portion,
the district does land
management, including
burning, while Sarasota
County handles security.
Lower Peace River
Corridor-Deep Creek
Preserve 2,106 acres in
DeSoto County.
With the Surplus Lands
Assessment Project, the
district's goal is to iden-
tify lands it owns that
no longer meet their
original acquisition pur-
poses, or do not provide


water-resource benefits,
such as flood control,
recharge, water storage,
water management, con-
servation and protection
of water resources, water
resource and water supply
development, or preserva-
tion of wetlands, streams
and lakes, according to
the district's website.
Property that does not
meet that criteria will be
sold to the highest bidders.
Examples include
lands that have little
conservation value or are
left unused after district
conservation projects are
completed.


Up for discussion in
this meeting were nine
properties covering
about 20,000 acres the
district is considering
selling or "surplusing."
Only one parcel a
6-acre Frog Creek tract in
Manatee County was
recommended for sale
Wednesday.
Having heard staff
recommendations and
having listened to the
public, the subcommit-
tee will present its rec-
ommendations to the full
district governing board
in Tampa in May.

County government unveils its new website


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

There is a new "look
and feel" to county
government.
First, Randall Reid took
over as county adminis-
trator last month. Now,
the county is redesigning
its website, www.scgov.
net.
The new site, which
has been under devel-
opment for more than
a year and can be
viewed at www.scgov.
net/newsite, has a light
green frame and sev-
eral features not found
on the old site, which

will remain online until
mid-April.
Some features on
the old home page,
such as County Insur-
ance Requirements and
Procurement Bids, are
not currently on the new
home page, while other
features that users previ-
ously had to dig to find
are now just one click
away. Some links, such
as County Maps, remain
on the home page but
were moved. Economic
Development must be
very important to county
officials there are two
links to that information
from the new home page.


Features of the new
site include large drop-
down windows, Top Ten
Links and Community
Topics (such as advisory
board vacancies and
Drug Free Sarasota).
Pages that are visited the
most will be featured
prominently on the
home page as the rede-
sign continues.
One of the most inter-
esting features of the new
site is the rotating graph-
ical image atop the home
page, featuring links to
information about Reid,

the nation's top beach
and a small-business

Septic


tank


mandate


repealed

STAFF REPORT

Sen. Don Gaetz issued
the following press
release on March 9
heralding a repeal of
legislation passed last
year requiring septic
tank inspections every
five years.
"I am happy to report
that a full repeal of
the burdensome and
over-reaching Septic
Tank Inspection Pro-
gram passed the Florida
House and Senate
today. Legislation that I
co-sponsored with my
colleague Senator Greg
Evers (R-Baker) was
adopted in bi-partisan
fashion and is on it's
way to the Governor to
be signed.
"In my view, the
septic tank mandate
was unnecessary policy
and it wrongly assumed
that rural North Florida
ought to be treated
the same as heavily
populated urban South
Florida. I am pleased
that President Harido-
polos and the full Senate
agreed to move forward
with a full repeal of this
overreaching mandate.
However, this feat could
not have been reached
without the unyield-
ing efforts of Rep.
Marti Coley (R-Mari-
anna) and Rep. Matt
Gaetz (R- FortWalton
Beach) in the House of
Representatives.
"With a full repeal, no
property owner in Flor-
ida need fear a swarm of
bureaucrats and tank-
testers invading their
property anymore."

Keep Venice beautiful


W e know people who walk
their neighborhoods every
morning carrying a second
plastic trash bag. The first bag is for
their dog's droppings thank you
very much for that. The other is for
any random piece of trash they may
encounter as they make their way
down the road. Thanks for that also.
It's not too hard to imagine how
trashy our community would look
like if individuals and groups didn't
take it upon themselves to pick up
roadside litter now and then. Anyone
who has traveled to a third-world
country has seen the effect: Places
that don't have litter laws and a cul-
ture where littering is considered a
taboo are uninviting.
The plastic bags, scraps of paper,
fast-food boxes and cups pile up



Plantation


community that


In my effort to visit every
nonprofit in our community,
I recently went to the Plan-
tation Community Foun-
dation. Chris Pfahler from
the Gulf Coast Community
Foundation took time out of
her schedule to make sure I
was on time and at the right
place. If I have not told you
how incredible Chris is, well
shame on me.
We met Lee Williams,
president of the Plantation
Community Foundation. For
the next two hours, Lee gave
us an incredible story of how
a group of citizens founded a
foundation and began doing
great things. Started in 1988,
this foundation has contrib-
uted more than $2 million
to organizations that range
from health, the arts, social
services and education. I was
fascinated by the sincerity and
reverence Lee paid the found-
ers when he spoke. He leads
with his heart and genuinely
cares about the foundation
and those it serves. He's a tre-
mendous asset, and it was my
pleasure to spend time with
him.
It's not often you come
across a community that
really supports a foundation
like the Plantation commu-
nity has demonstrated in the
past.
The commitment has
proven to be even stronger
this year as they had four main
fundraisers dedicated to the
foundation. This partnership
has turned raising money for
critical causes into nothing less
than spectacular fun for the
residents.
Early in November the first
event is held, The Royal Ride
and Frolic, January through
April is scheduled for "Some-
thing Different." It's basically
like it sounds, something dif-
ferent each month. February


quickly. The littered landscape looks
lousy. It tells you people don't feel a
shared responsibility, that they just
don't care about their environment
or that they've got more immediate
concerns. It sends a message, and not
a positive one.
There was a time when littering
was routine in this country also.
In 1953, the group Keep America
Beautiful was founded in response
to the growing litter problem associ-
ated with extended road networks.
The group spearheaded public
service campaigns and community
cleanup efforts. These worked to a
great extent. According to the group,
the amount of highway litter has
decreased by 60 percent nationally
since 1968.
Still, Keep America Beautiful


a


gives


the Plantation Golf and Coun-
try Club hosts a celebrity golf
tournament and the season
winds down with a Spring
Fashion show that is simply
amazing.
I am very familiar with the
golfing event as we sponsor
the festivities every year. This
year I had the added treat to
attend the Spring Fashion
Show and I took our local
fashion lady Karen Evanicki
from Zak's on Venice Avenue
to keep me informed on
what I was viewing as the
show progressed. (Actually I
owed Karen as I misspelled
Zak's a few columns back. My
apologies.) The entire table
began to help me understand
women's fashion, but I forgot
most of it on the drive back to
work as most of us men tend
to do.
Obviously with this kind of
effort, the Plantation Com-
munity Foundation has made
its mark in the philanthropic
arena and continues to find
ways to engage the folks
who support this wonderful
foundation.
Here is an amazing fact: This
year's grants will be roughly 20
percent higher than last year's
total. I have to believe this
community is totally focused
on making the lives of those
less fortunate a little easier,
keeping our environment
sound and making sure the
arts flourish and proving that
having fun doing so is a great
avenue to success. Leader-
ship at this organization has
proven time and again the
value of communication, hard
work and partnership all give
positive results.
Clearly, this foundation is
on a mission and I can tell
you that focus and determi-
nation is imbedded in the
entire organization. This was
quite an impressive visit with
quite an impressive leader.
Thanks to Lee for being a
wonderful guide, thanks to
Chris for sharing the experi-
ence with me and a special
thanks to all of those folks out
in Plantation who continue
to give and ensure a brighter
tomorrow.

estimates that 51 billion pieces of
litter still mar our roadways; that's
6,729 pieces of litter per mile. The
group found that 80 percent of
littering observed during a recent
study was intentional: Litterbugs
didn't know better or didn't care
enough about others. As the study
put it, they lacked "a sense of
obligation."
The study also found that litter
begets litter. It's the "broken windows"
effect; the existence of litter creates
the impression that it's permissible
and a little more won't hurt. The
availability of trash receptacles also
matters. And then there's the age fac-
tor: People under age 30 littered more
than older people.
One way Keep America Beautiful
helps combat litter is by establishing


templates for group cleanup
days in our communities. Local
groups Keep Sarasota Beauti-
ful and Keep Charlotte Beautiful
- encourage people to come out
and clean up together. These help
tremendously.
The Great American Cleanup Day
in Charlotte County has already been
held. Sarasota's cleanup will take place
on the morning of Saturday, April 7, in
parks, neighborhoods or any spe-
cial places volunteer groups wish to
attack.
We encourage everyone to spend
a morning out on a litter hunt. It all
helps make our area look more beau-
tiful. Thanks to all who participate,
and especially to those who bring
the extra trash bag along during their
morning walks.

Attraction. I'm calling about
yoga on the beach. My brother
came down here with his girl-
friend and she had researched
Venice and went down every
day for Elin's yoga class. We
put relatives in the Inn on the
Beach just because they would
experience Elin. My nephew's
wife owns yoga studios in
Toronto and my niece is a yoga
instructor. They thought this
was the best thing that ever
happened. This attracts people
to Venice.
Come out. To the person
who said there are no differ-
ences between Republicans
and Democrats what rock
have you been living under?
Fines. Yes, the city should
drop its ordinance regulat-
ing short-term rentals. This is
not the job of government, to
regulate how people use their
property as long as they are not
harming anybody else. However,
some of these rentals result in
parties that disturb the neigh-
borhood. That's when the police
should be called and fines
should be levied. The second
time a rental is fined the first
fine being toward the people
who are renting it the owner
gets fined. The third time, the
fines go up if the owner contin-
ues to rent to people who have
wild parties. My granddaugh-
ter rents a home on the island
in Venice and it is a beautiful
neighborhood. They were very
cautious about renters and there
were no parties. So, please don't
take that away.
Changes needed. About
Jeff Snyder knowing about the
$1 million the city had to pay.
Where is the bill about the
$27 million shortfall for the
police and fire? That needs
to be brought up, and that's
also Jeff Snyder's responsibil-
ity. Also, the Circus Arena just
needs to be demolished. I don't
know how long we need to talk
about this. It has to meet all the
current codes and could safely
house the collections that want
to be inside and also provide
a place Venice citizens and


Let 'em



















Have It
visitors to have a multi-purpose
building. The ordinance on
the short-term rentals: The
only people who are benefit-
ing from this ordinance are the
city's attorneys. Every time they
make a recommendation and
council follows it, the city has
to pay a fine. However, the city's
attorneys always get paid. They
get paid to give bad advice and
they get paid to do damage
control. I hope that the new
city manager is going to make
some changes in the finance
director and also in the city
attorneys. We need an in-house
city attorney who does not have
any conflict of interest and who
is contractually loyal to the city.
Insufficient. I want you all
to bring back the Community
Calendar. I agree with the per-
son who said that's the reason
they buy the Gondolier Sun,
and I think that's true of most
people. Please bring it back in
its entirety. It's not sufficient to
say that it's on the Internet. If
it's just on the Internet, then I
may as well cancel my sub-
scription. Please bring it back.
No motel. I say keep the
ordinance in place for short-
term rentals. We don't want to
turn this into a Motel 6 island.
Role model? I thought


Whitney Houston was an
abuser of drugs and alcohol.
We're flying the flag at half-
staff for her? What a role model
for our young people.
Welcomed. I welcome regu-
lar or short-term renters on my
street. It's better than having
empty houses that attract
break-ins and vandalism.
No joke. I can't believe you
ran the photo saying "Eat
more manatee" as a joke. That
is not a joke. These beautiful
and endangered animals are
eaten in many parts of the
world Africa and Australia
for example. This is not a joke.
We need to do everything we
can to protect manatees. This
is totally tasteless.
Regulate them. The city
of Venice should not drop
its regulation for short-term
rentals.
Go higher. About lowering the
speed limit down the Jacaranda
area: Roads have no business
being less than 35 mph. If you
can't negotiate traffic at 35 mph,
then maybe you shouldn't be
driving. The speed limits around
Venice are so low, you can't get
anywhere. So, I vote no. Do not
lower the speed limit.
Scary Rick. If you thought
Newt Gingrich was scary when
you looked to see what he
stands for, then you'll be dou-
bly scared when you look to
see what Rick Santorum stands
for. You might want to start by
locking your bedroom door.
Rick Santorum recently said,
"Many of the Christian faith
have said contraception is OK.
It's not OK. It's a license to do
things in a sexual realm and it's
counter to how things are sup-
posed to be." I think he ought
to keep his ideas to himself.
Go green. I'd like to ask
those at the intersection of
U.S. 41 Bypass and Center
Road to please not go through
the red light. It would be nice if
the sheriff's office would put a
traffic control unit there in the
mornings.

Citizens have a duty to utilize transparency laws


MICHAEL
BARFIELD
GUEST COLUMNIST

James Madison, the
founding father of our
open government
laws, once emphasized
the importance of citi-
zens having the ability to
be informed: "A popular
government, without
popular information, or
the means of acquiring
it, is but a prologue to
a farce or a tragedy; or,
perhaps, both." Florida
leads the nation in pro-
viding the tools neces-
sary for every citizen to
gain knowledge about
what his or her govern-


ment is up to. Knowledge
is power and the Florida
Public Records Act and
Government-in-the- Sun-
shine Law ensure that
any citizen can discover
the inner workings of
government.
This week is Sunshine
Week around the nation
in honor of Madison's
birthday. The Sunshine
Law and Public Records
Act are essential to our
democracy because they
provide the ability for
all citizens to perform a
check at the ballot box.
However, there are two
important ingredients
that must be diminished
in order to secure the
constitutional right of
open government.


First, unless citizens
use these tools, they
remain ignorant of what
is really going on and
powerless to render an
informed judgment at
the ballot box. A politi-
cian's greatest fear is
the application of open
government laws. Those
laws do not require
a citizen to identify
themselves or state a
reason why they want to
inspect public records.
Additionally, the only
delay allowed is the time
it takes a custodian to
retrieve a record and
make it available for
inspection.
Second, the judiciary
must continue to vigor-
ously enforce these laws


and not allow public
officials to erode
access to information
through the labyrinth
that electronic records
sometimes take. Charg-
ing excessive fees to
access records is also
a common method by
which record custodi-
ans deprive citizens of
access as well as the
assertion of invalid
exemptions. One of the
biggest threats facing
the ability of citizens
to remain informed is
recent legislative efforts
to constrain an indepen-
dent judiciary. Citizens
must ensure that the
three branches of gov-
ernment are kept sepa-
rate to prevent excessive


accumulation of power
in any one branch. An
independent judiciary
is vital to protecting
the ability of citizens to
gain knowledge through
open government laws.
Without it, we are at the
mercy of whatever the
legislative and execu-
tive branches want us to
know.
Be curious about what
your government is up
to. It's rewarding and
leads to the knowledge
that Madison related
to having power. The
exercise of your constitu-
tional rights is no differ-
ent than any other form
of exercise: Your rights
will atrophy, just like
your muscles. Exercising


your rights under open
government laws also
will give you the satisfac-
tion that decisions made
at the ballot box are con-
scientious ones. When
elected officials know
that citizens are routinely
using open govern-
ment laws, they become
more transparent and
sensitive to the fact that
all power lies with the
citizenry. In the end, the
process is symbiotic and
contributes to a healthy
democracy.

I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Project drags,
beachgoers fume
Editor:
This is regarding
Manasota Beach condi-
tions as created by the
Sarasota County and
Parks Department.
In December 2011,
work was begun on a
new bathhouse, sep-
tic system and various
other amenities. In the
process of establishing
a base of operations,
patrons lost access to
bathroom facilities and
showers. In order to mit-
igate the inconvenience,
two port-a-potties were
put in place. Upon
listening to requests
and complaints from
disgruntled beachgoers,
one showerhead was put
up. This shower at the
time of this writing has
been unoperative for
several days. Due to the
old and worn-out fix-
tures used that resulted
in the faucet sticking in
permanently "On" posi-
tion, the water has been
shut off at the source.
We are told this project
will last until sometime
in the fall of 2012. I do
think it is high time that
the people in charge of
this project pay some
attention to the requests
and complaints by tax-
payers and others.
Surely somewhere in


the budget for this proj-
ect there must be fund-
ing for two showers and
a footbath for those of us
who are being severely
inconvenienced.
As of this writing, more
port-a-potties have been
added.

Sees parallels to Hitler
Editor:
When it sounds too
good to be true, it usually
is. That, my friends, is
Obamacare.
We all would like
everyone to have health
care but not at the
expense of bankrupting
our country, and that is
what it is about to do.
We need Obama's reign
to end; he may pass the
marble test, but so did
Hitler.
Socialism in govern-
ment is a stage on its way
toward communism. Full
communism begins by
the abolition of capital-
ism. Capitalism made
America great; those that
don't like it could leave.
Everything starts in
phases, as it did in the
time of Hitler, and before
you knew it, it was a dif-
ferent world. During the
start of Nazi control, the
major Protestant church
was forced to accept


the direction of a hand-
picked bishop. The states
lost power when the

'Where' is important too
Editor:
I realize legal issues
arise with regard to cer-
tain stories, but when a
pit bull rushes and kills a
dog, the locale should be
revealed in detail.
If my child walked from
a bus stop, I would want
to be warned as to where
death-penalty-deserving


perverts are. Why not
vicious canines?
My little Lhasa Apso
just died of old age, but
if some dog owner's pit
bull killed my dog before
my eyes, as much as I
despise what lawyers
have done to this coun-
try, I would hire a lawyer
and harass them at the
least.
If the 90-year-old lady
mentioned in the story
had been walking Louie
at the time of the attack
and had tried to inter-
vene and was ravaged
by the pit bull while her
deceased daughter's dog
was slaughtered, how
much more informa-
tion would have been
printed?
I realize the law
allegedly intervenes,
but when one of these
savage creatures com-
mits an atrocity, why are
they allowed to remain
on site?
This law needs to
change for the benefit
of the innocents, and let


dog owners be


*ware.

Editor's Note: We made
an editorial decision not
to print the address of
the dog owner because of
the possibility of retali-
ation and because the
legal process had not


run its course. In the
case of a sex offender we
print the specific address
when that person returns
to the community.

The casting directors are
not limited to any set
options for selection, but
are interested in a family
with a high school or
college student and who
have never been in the
U.K. before. Filming will
take place in both sister
cities.
Families interested in
being selected will need
an existing valid U.S.
passport.
S "Twin Towns," the
brand-new prime-time
TV series, features
families from the U.S.


swapping lives with
families in their "twin
towns" in the United
Kingdom. The exchanges
are scheduled to take
place between April 16
and June 30.
Families will exchange
jobs and homes, and
the children will visit
local schools or col-
leges. Known for its royal
palace, historic villages,
breathtaking landscape,
and plentiful art muse-
ums, Dunfermline has a
rich cultural experience
to offer a lucky Sarasota
family. Other U.S. cities
to be featured in this
series include Seattle,
Chicago (Lake County)
and Louisville.
The Dunfermline
relationship is anchored
in the historical founding
of Sarasota by Scots and
its first mayor, John Gil-
lespie. The twinning was
completed with the offi-
cial signing ceremony by
Mayor Lou Ann Palmer at
the Van Wezel in October
2002, as part of the 100th

LET 'EM
FROM PAGE 10

Lucky. This is about the
gentleman in Let'em Have
It who complained about
Jeff Snyder. Jeff Snyder is
the most competent city
manager that I have ever
met in either a business
setting or in a city. I have
been on city council for
six years and the Winter
Haven commission for
12 years and I've been a
mayor for four sessions.
I've seen a lot of finance
directors and I want you


to know that Jeff Snyder is
the most able that I have
ever met and the city of
Venice is very, very fortu-
nate to have him.
Bocce booster. I'd like
to see a bocce course at
Legacy Trail Park. They
promised one a couple
of years ago. Also, no
one complains about the
surface of our roads. It's
a travesty. By the way, the
roundabout is beautiful.
Put down. We've had
two incidents of vicious
dogs attacking or killing
before getting con-
trolled. I believe killing or
injuring another animal


should be grounds for
putting the dog down.
Ovation. This is not
an earthshaking situa-
tion, but I'm getting very
annoyed at the petty
complaints against the
current production of
"The Music Man" atVen-
ice Theatre. My husband
and I have been faithful
theatergoers for more
than 20 years and most
of the time they really do
wonderful productions.
Whoever is picking on
individuals about the
show, all I can say is that
friends and I worked at
the Saturday evening


production and the cast
had a standing ovation.
I think the entire cast
should be applauded.
The costumes were
magnificent, but that's
not the only thing to be
complimented. I hope
they continue with their
wonderful productions.
Apparently, Kim Cool
and I went to see "The
Music Man" on different
nights. I've been a season
ticket holder for about 20
years at Venice Theatre.
Along with my friends,
we enjoyed "The Music
Man" very much. They all
seemed to put out their


very, very best. Sorry to
hear such a bad-mouth
critique on such a won-
derful show. Go cast!
Target booze. One of
the items you see on the
sign at the Venice Beach
is "No alcohol." Yet on
Saturday during the 85th
anniversary celebration of
Venice, it was being sold
by a vendor, which, of
course, allows people to
consume alcohol on the
beach. Perhaps the county
should be stopping that
activity rather than trying
to stop the yoga.
Unmerited. After read-
ing about the business


awards in the paper a
couple of weeks ago, I just
have to ask if any of the
awards is ever verified. I
used to work for one of
the companies that has
won year after year after
year, and we would bring
in newspapers with the
forms to be filled out. It's
just unsettling. The com-
panies that deserve these
awards, that win fair and
square, I give them kudos;
but the ones that don't,
like the company I know,
for a fact it definitely
didn't win on the merits.
They need to be ashamed
of themselves.

BASEBALL SARASOTA BASEBALL CLASSIC



Venice victorious in first two games


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

Pitching, defense and timely
hitting were key as Venice used
a four-run sixth inning to pull
off a 5-1 upset victory over
nationally-ranked Pembroke
Pines Flanagan in the second
of three games in Pool A of the
Elite Division of the 27th annual
Sarasota Baseball Classic. The
game was played Tuesday night
at Buck O'Neil Baseball Complex
in Sarasota.
This is a rematch of the 2003
Sarasota Baseball Classic cham-
pionship in which the Falcons
prevailed, 4-3, in 10 innings.
Venice plays its final game of
pool play at 7:30 tonight against
district foe Manatee at Buck
O'Neil Baseball Complex.
The Indians opened the Clas-
sic with a 2-0 win over Miami
Sunset on Monday night.
"I think we beat a great
team," said Venice coach Craig
Faulkner. "It's a big hurdle."
Venice (7-3) not only defeated
the Falcons (8-2), who are
ranked No. 19 in the country
in the latest MaxPreps Xcellent
National baseball rankings, but
handed their ace pitcher Jose
Mesa Jr. his first loss.
Mesa is the son of former
major league pitcher Jose Mesa
and the 6-foot-4, 215 pound
right-hander entered the game
with 27 strikeouts in his last 13
innings and a total of 64 strike-
outs in 32 innings on the season.
Mesa (4-1) limited Venice to
two hits with five strikeouts and
four walks in seven innings.
"Jose Mesa is a quality
pitcher," said Faulkner. "His dad
played 15-20 years in big leagues
and he is cut out of the same
mold. We waited our turn and
got him when it was time. Big
hits by Nick Longhi and (Bran-
don) Elmy early in the game."
Tied at 1-1 with only one hit,
Venice opened the bottom of
the sixth inning with a walk by
pinch-hitter Tyler Atwell. A sacri-
fice bunt by Grant Banko moved
pinch-runner Colton Lightner
to second base. The Indians,
then Mesa, had trouble finding
the strike zone. Knott walked
on four pitches to put runners
at first and second base. Nick
Longhi followed by connecting

on a 2-0 fastball for a double
over the right fielder's head for a
RBI double to give Venice a 2-1
lead.
"A pitcher like that he is
definitely a good pitcher with
good stuff," said Longhi. "Guys
that throw hard always try and
get it by you and you have to be
looking for a fastball as a hitter
in that count. That is a pitch you
have to drive. You can't miss that
one."
An intentional walk to Elmy
loaded the bases. Rex Ingerick
hit a chopper to second base to
score Knott with the second run.
Kevin Guthrie hit a grounder to
second baseman Andres Visbal,
who bobbled it just enough for
Guthrie to beat the throw to first
base. On the play, Longhi and
pinch-runner Dalton Guthrie
scored the final two runs.
For the second straight game,


Venice's pitching limited its
opponents to five hits.
Venice starter Michael Knott
kept Flanagan's offense in check
by allowing just one run on four
hits in five innings with one
strikeout.
Knott had some key help from
catcher Michael Rivera and cen-
ter fielder Ingerick.
Rivera threw runners out try-
ing to steal in the first and sixth
innings and also picked a runner
off first base in the first inning.
"The real story here is Mike
Rivera's catching," said Faulkner.
"Throwing guys out and stop-
ping their running game as
well as Mike Knott and Cooper
Hammond. Our pitching staff is
the real story. Only giving up one
run a game and put some stuff
together you can win games."
Ingerick saved a possible run
in the top of the fourth inning.


Andres Sanches led off with a
double down the third base line.
Then Rick Sanchez, the No. 4
hitter, hit a ball into short center
field. Ingerick made a diving
catch to keep the runner at
second base. Knott then got a fly
out. An errant throw to second
base by the catcher moved
Sanchez to third base but Mesa
lined out to center field to end
the inning.
For the second straight game,
Cooper Hammond, a side-arm
right-hander, entered and shut
down the opponent.
Hammond (4-0) allowed a
single to open the sixth inning
but then got a strikeout and
Rivera threw a runner out at
second base for a double play.
After a runner reached on an
error to begin the seventh inning,

Stormwater project clears another hurdle


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER
Supporters of the
long-awaited $9 million
plan for the construc-
tion of a stormwater
system using Low Im-
pact Design technology
along Dearborn Street,
west of State Road 776,
have received good
news.
As expected, Sarasota
County commissioners
have approved a 2011-
12 budget amendment
to move $800,000 for
this pilot low impact
design project. The
money will come from
the Englewood Com-
munity Redevelopment
Area fund balance and
will be used as match-


ing funds for a South-
west Florida Water
Management District
grant.
They also amended
a cooperative funding
agreement with the wa-
ter district for the proj-
ect, increasing the total
contract amount from
$3 million to $4.5 mil-
lion, with the county
and water district each
contributing $2.25 mil-
lion. The remaining
portion of the project
cost, approximately
$4.5 million, will be
borrowed by the CRA.
"We're excited to be
moving this project on
to the next level and
look forward to the
ground-breaking cer-
emony" in July, Engle-


wood CRA Coordinator
Debbie Marks said.
The project currently
is designed and permit-
ted and will be adver-
tised for construction
bids within the next two
months. Construction
is expected to begin
July 30 and be complet-
ed in September 2013.
County officials hope
the low-impact design
will improve the qual-
ity of stormwater for
existing development,
future development and
redevelopment in the
Englewood commercial
district. Completion
of the project is set for
September 2013. Cur-
rently an underground
stormwater system
on parts of Dearborn


includes a pond for
water treatment, but
other storm water flows
directly into Lemon Bay
untreated.
LID involves the con-
struction of engineered
bioswales. Traditional,
box-dug drainage
ditches collect storm-
water that then would
drain untreated -
directly into Lemon
Bay. Bioswales would
treat stormwater runoff
before it enters the bay.
The system also stores a
portion of stormwater in
a pipe system, for subse-
quent irrigation uses.
The goal is to reduce
or eliminate the need
to provide individual
stormwater systems on
each parcel, to locate


the system within the
current public right
of way or on publicly
owned properties and
to eliminate or mini-
mize direct runoff into
Lemon Bay. This would
come at a considerable
cost saving when com-
pared to a traditional
stormwater system.
The new drainage
system will extend a
block north and south
of Dearborn and will
run from the west end
of Dearborn to Indiana
Avenue/State Road 776.
The Englewood CRA
was established in 1998
to stimulate redevel-
opment on Dearborn
Street and in the
Englewood area. After
consideration of above-


ground ponds and
vaults under property
slated for future parking
lots the LID project
was born in May 2009,
when an Englewood
community group pre-
sented the idea to the
Englewood CRA advi-
sory board. Later that
month commission-
ers directed that the
Dearborn stormwater
project proceed using
LID principles.
Staff is seeking to
ensure that the public
parking lots, Veteran's
Memorial and Freedom
Pavilion, adjacent to the
bioswales, are devel-
oped in accordance
with LID principles.

River Road widening to start this summer


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER
The long-awaited,
$8.5 million widening of
the intersection at U.S.
41 and River Road will
begin this summer and
be complete in one year.
Plans include adding
turn lanes and modify-
ing the traffic signals to
accommodate cur-
rent and future traffic
patterns.
The project has been
anticipated for years.
An interlocal agree-
ment between Sarasota
County, the city of
North Port and the West
Villages Improvement
District was approved in
July 2009. Construction
plans by Kimley-Horn &
Associates are complete
and permits have been


approved.
Kimley-Horn also was
revising the traffic anal-
ysis based on current
traffic counts to address
Florida Department of
Transportation per-
mitting requirements.
Changes to some turn
lanes are anticipated.
The county has
acquired all of the prop-
erty needed to accom-
modate the planned
improvements. Two pur-
chases on the west
side and north of the
intersection involved
eminent domain.
Bidding for recon-
struction of the road
is scheduled for April.
County Commission
approval of the con-
struction contract
is scheduled for this
summer.


Meanwhile, the board
will discuss financial
options for the resurfac-
ing of South River Road
and completing Phase 2
of the Englewood side-
walks project during a
budget workshop today.
The cost of resur-
facing is expected to
be $1.5 million while
the cost of the side-
walks is expected to be
$1.2 million. To fund
these projects, staff
will recommend that
commissioners approve
transferring $2.6 million
in unspent funds from
these projects:
Fruitville Road proj-
ect $870,000
Honore Road/Ash-
ton Road intersection
-$500,000
Honore-Pinebrook
Road- $730,000

Venice Symphony celebrates its city


By PAM JOHNSON
CITY OF VENICE MARKETING
AND COMMUNICATIONS OFFICER

Venice is known as the small, historic
city on the Gulf with big-city cultural
amenities.
One organization contributing to that
reputation is the Venice Symphony,
which will perform a free concert at
4 p.m. Saturday at Maxine Barritt Park,
1900 South Harbor Drive, Venice.
The Venice Symphony Orchestra
was founded in 1973, but three years
later changed its name to Suncoast
Symphony Orchestra.
In those early years about 35 to 60
musicians gathered at 3 p.m. on three
Sunday during the winter season at
the Venice High School auditorium
where they played under the direction
of HartleyW. Haines. Haines was the
director of music in the public schools
and had performed with the State Sym-
phony of Florida, State Opera Associa-
tion and Florida West Coast Symphony
when he took on the task of being the
local orchestra's first conductor.
The Florida State University School
of Music graduate found himself before
a stage of volunteer musicians, one
as old as 85 and one as young as 8.
Although the admission was free, the
patrons were proud and enthusiastic.
The first concertmaster was Joyce
Hoefer, who continued to play violin
in the orchestra until last year. She
remembers the first rehearsal in the fall
of 1973.
"We met in the orchestra room at
the high school," she said. "Hartley
invited three musicians from the West
Coast Symphony in Sarasota who lived
inVenice. Some of his students also
participated. My daughter, Karen, was
one of them."
Both mother and daughter played
the first performance. Karen Hoefer
Tuttle is now the first violist for the
orchestra.
Her mother recalls clearly the orches-
tra's first concert was Jan. 19, 1974 it
was Karen's 11th birthday.
"One thing that helped us when we
were just starting out is that the high
school had a library of music we could
use," Hoefer said.
Around 1983, Haines left the school
and the symphony orchestra. Ernesto
Epistola, a cellist, was hired by the
school board to be the orchestra direc-
tor and strings teacher at the Venice
high and middle schools. Symphony
board member Barbara Bregman

encouraged Epistola to audition for the
conductor position at the symphony.
"Barbara was a powerhouse," he said.
Epistola was selected to lead the
mostly volunteer orchestra to the next
level. He continued as the maestro
until 1988. His classroom was located
in the "new" middle school on Cen-
ter Road. That became the symphony
orchestra's rehearsal hall.
"The chairs and music stands were
already set up," Epistola said. "Perfor-
mances were at the high school. We
were at the mercy of the custodians.
They had to set up the chairs and set
the stage before every performance.
"The musicians had a committee
to select the music we played. Some
of the music was challenging not
high school music. It was a community
affair. We had some retired musicians
who had played in big orchestras in
other parts of the country and some
students."
Epistola said the orchestra had an
outreach program for kids.
"I invited professional musicians to
teach kids the basics of string play-
ing," he said. "Soloists were not paid
much, but we did have some come
from nearby colleges. One of my for-
mer students came from California to
perform."
In 1987, John Kalajian, an attorney
and future city council member, was
elected president of the symphony
board, with Bregman, Anne Wise and
Edward Schmidt serving as vice presi-
dents. Other board members included
Marijane Rouvet, Lee Burns, Eileen
Arnold, Edward Knob, Kenneth Blount,
Irene DeLorme, Greg Colby, Dr. Mar-
tin Romanski and Ann Runyan. That
year, the orchestra became the Venice
Symphony once again and raised ticket
prices from $3 to $10 per concert.

have the privilege of a performing, clas-
sical orchestra of their own?" Kalajian
was quoted in the newspaper, referring
to Venice's population of almost 15,000.
The orchestra drew from a pool of
local talent. A 1988 Herald-Tribune
article by Dorothy Stockbridge stated
the impressive backgrounds of several
of the orchestra's musicians.
According to the article, clarinet-
ist Harry Phillips was a college music
professor in New York before coming
to Florida, where he taught at Manatee
Community College (now State College
of Florida). Trumpet player Joe Marti-
nez (still with the symphony) taught
music in Sarasota and conducted the
FloridaWest Coast Symphony. Trom-
bonist Stephen Terry taught orchestra
in Manatee schools.
Cellists Frank Salerno and Dorothy
Cole played professionally, Cole in the
Minneapolis civic orchestra. Albert
Myerson, a Ph.D. scientist, played in
symphony orchestras in Philadelphia,
Buffalo and Plainfield, N.J. Violinist
Andy Zingaro was a former educa-
tor from New York and violinist Ernie
St. Jacques was concertmaster of the
Holyoke, Mass., Civic Symphony and

taught at Holyoke Community College.
Other members of the orchestra that
year included Venice High School stu-
dents Anthony Accardi, Larry Strejcek,
Tracy Music and Daniela Heider.
In 1989, Wesley John Schumacher
took the director's baton. He ended
his first season with a performance of
"Poet and Peasant Overture."
"This is an old chestnut, but Maestro
Schumacher breathed new life into
it," Gondolier music reviewer Kenneth
Blount wrote. "Maestro Schumacher
made the evening an entertaining
event by his enthusiasm and his talent.
He obviously enjoys what he is doing
and the audience senses this. Artisti-
cally, this has been a successful first
season for him and the orchestra is
lucky to have him."
"The new conductor was very good
at fundraising," Epistola said. "That was
what the symphony needed."
"Wes worked very hard. He got a
larger music program in the schools
and got people to sponsor the con-
certs," Hoefer said.
Schumacher had moved from
Illinois, where he was a high school

Man donates truck to All Faiths Food Bank

FROM JACARANDA TRACE

Edward H. Lyman, 99,
a resident of Jacaranda
Trace, got his first look the
morning of March 5 at the
26-foot refrigerated truck
he recently donated to All
Faiths Food Bank.
Lyman, who will be 100
June 24, was overwhelmed
by the good works of All
Faiths Food Bank after read-
ing one of its brochures.
"When I learned that they
give away an amazing num-
ber of meals with so few paid
employees compared to the
immense number of vol-
unteers, I knew I had to do
something to help," he said.
Lyman toured the food
bank's facility and asked
what one thing would help
the most in getting more
food out to those who need
it.


"When they said they had
a need for a truck, I agreed,"
Lyman said.
In total, Lyman donated
more than $100,000 in 2011
to All Faiths Food Bank. All
Faiths was so


the food bank is doing."

Faiths Food Bank, call 941-

with the gen-
erous gift it
had his name
painted on the
truck.
"I had a lot
of requests for
donations,"
Lyman said,
"but nothing
began to appeal -
to me like the
wonderful work -

Seatbelt Syndrome


DR. DAN BUSCH, DR. ERENE ROMANSKI
CHIROPRACTOR
As a consequence of having been
improperly restrained in their seats during
automobile accidents, children may suffer
"seatbelt syndrome." These injuries involve
the spine and abdomen, ranging from
rupture of organs in the abdomen and pelvis
to fractures of the spine, ribs, sternum, or
clavicle. An analysis of ten years of studies
on motor-vehicle crashes involving children


reveals that there is a clear association
between spinal fractures and spinal cord
injury. This study makes a strong argument
for a thorough examination of children
who have been involved in automobile
crashes. A missed diagnosis can be
devastating. The study also points out the
absolute necessity of restraining children
properly in booster seats, car seats, and seat
belts with attached shoulder harnesses.

hired byVenice-Nokomis
United Methodist Church
to serve as minister of
music and lead the choir
before being invited to
take on the leadership of
the symphony orches-
tra. He held a monthly
preview of the upcoming
symphony concert to
educate audiences about
the music they would
hear. He also briefly
introduced pieces with
historical information in
an entertaining man-

Judy Bacon was a
member of the Venice-
Nokomis United Meth-
odist Church choir when
Schumacher became its
director. Bacon, who was
a symphony board mem-
ber, encouraged Schum-
acher to try out for the
conductor position when
it became available. For
most of the six years
she served on the board
Bacon ran ticket sales for
the symphony from her

Bacon said. "To me, he

things he did is to go to
the downtown merchants
and ask for money to
purchase music for his
first concert."
Schumacher was good
at garnering the inter-
est of the community,
according to Bacon.
"He had the church
choir sing with the sym-
phony and by doing so
enlarged the audience
and the general interest
in the symphony," she
said.
Bacon recalls Schum-
acher's enhancement
of the student outreach
program.
"Wes and Eric Watters
went to the schools with
a program for third-
graders that essentially
taught them about vari-
ous instruments in the
orchestra during a series
of classes throughout the
year," she said.
Schumacher was also
known for his "hose and
bottle" show performed
for the third-graders,
pre-school children and
even adults to help them
understand how sounds
can be turned into
music.
"Eric started putting on
his one-man show every
year to raise money for
the education program,"
Bacon said.
Later, Watters served
as the symphony's board
chair as well.

orchestra when Schum-
acher became conductor.
"I think we got bet-
ter every year," she
said. "But one dynamic
change was when Dick
Adams and Paul Chalfant
became co-concertmas-
ters. The quality seemed
to improve a lot. And
then, better musicians
wanted to join."
Adams and Chalfant
did a wonderful job of
rehearsing the strings,
bringing them to a new
level of mastery, Hoefer
said.
Another memorable
concert master was
Alfred Gershfeld, who
moved from Russia,
where he conducted the
Bolshoi Ballet Orchestra.
"His English was hard
to understand, so his
wife, who had been an
English teacher in Rus-
sia, would come to the
rehearsals and translate
for him," Hoefer said.
In 1990, the symphony
board hired Jean Peters
as executive director.
Peters followed former
executive directors, Jayne
Jacobson and Sandra
Watters. Carl Watters,
Sandra's former husband
and Eric's brother, con-
tinued to set up and take
down furnishings and
props until his untimely
death in 2010.

more high-caliber musi-
cians. He moved the per-
formances from the high
school auditorium to the
Church of the Nazarene
on East Venice Avenue.
The new venue allowed
comfortable seats for 650
people and good acous-
tics for the music.
"Jean is a self-starter
and can do anything,"
Bacon said.
As the Church of the
Nazarene was being
built, there were many
meetings about how its
structure and interior
would accommodate the
classical music concerts.
"Jean said, 'this is a
nice, classy place and
we need to have a classy
symphony,'" Bacon said.
Peters even gave the
musicians a new look.
"That was when the
musicians began wearing
tuxedos and all black,"
Bacon said. "Even the
ushers wore tuxedos.
Jean is a great organizer
and a great idea person."
Peters brought with
her 20 years of volunteer
experience with larger
symphony orchestras in
Rockford, Ill.; Cincinnati,
Ohio; and Des Moines,
Iowa. She picked up
ticket sales from Bacon
and continued to sell
them and market the

"The thing I think is
so wonderful is how this
symphony has grown,"
Peters said. "When I
started there were four
concerts with two per-
formances each. Today,
there are six concerts
with three performances
each, a free outdoor

"What I think is excit-

I GOREN BRIDGE
WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

6 K J 9 3 ) 6 2 010 7 3 A Q 6 2

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

A You have an absolute maximum
for a simple response to partner's
one-diamond opening bid, so your
hand merits some try for game. The
obvious way to tell partner of this is
to bid three clubs now, and see how
he reacts.

Q 2 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:

SJ965 K Q 8 4 0 7 3 A103


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
Pass Pass 10
1v Pass 14


EAST
Pass
Pass


What do you bid now?

A Your hand revalues to some 11-12
points in support of spades. Tell
partner of the good news by jumping
to three spades and see if that
encourages him to bid on.

Q 3 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

4KQ 10 AK J 9 AK QJ 9 6

The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
24 Pass 2% Pass

What do you bid now?

A Partner's response probably
shows six hearts (at worst five
headed by the queen), so it is simply
a matter of how many aces he holds.
A Blackwood four no trump (or four
clubs, depending on your methods)
should yield all the information you
need to find out whether a grand slam
is in the cards.

Q 4 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:


483 Q9 0QJ10 6 AQ975


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
10 Pass 2
36 Pass ?
What action do you take?


WEST
Pass


A While your secondary honors are
a slight demerit, your queen in
partner's suit and good fillers are a
plus value. We would look for a
notrump game by making a game try.
Bid three diamonds and see how
partner reacts.

Q 5 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

4 95 K J85 0 A10 7 4J 9 6 3

The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
1NT 24 ?
What do you bid now?

A East's overcall is an annoyance,
but the best way to counter it is to
ignore it and show the value of your
hand and make your natural raise to
two no trump. If partner has hearts,
he can still bid the suit to offer you a
choice of games should you have
four or more hearts.

Q 6 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:

4 J 5 K 10 8 AK10 6 K 10 6 3

The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
14 14 1NT Pass
9
What action do you take?

A You have 14 points in high cards,
good intermediates and the jack of
spades might be a full stopper when
combined with partner's holding in
the suit. Pass, since your side cannot
have the 26 combined points needed
to make game.

Life is a cabaret
ot only does Venice have one of the very best community
theaters in America, it now has a cabaret at least
for the weekend.
Venice Art Center is the place to be Friday and/or Saturday
evening.
"Life is a Cabaret," is an "art meets life meets art" happening with
prizes and entertainment for participants.
From 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. either night, ticket holders will, to use
the term loosely, "picnic" at the center while being entertained by
"Broadway Diva" Wendy Wolfe and pianist Dave Sayer.
Prizes are being given to participants who serve the
best food, have the best table decorations and possibly
for some other category still being dreamed up. Tickets are
$30 per person. Each table will be provided with two bottles
of wine.
Considering the locale, the artier the better could well be the
winner of nay of the prizes. VAC is at 390 S.. Nokomis Ave.,
on the island in Venice. For reservations, call 941-485-7136.
In Sarasota, the 2012 season of Sarasota Opera continues with
four offerings in rotation through March 25 in the jewel known
as the Sarasota Opera House.
As the Edwards Theatre, the building was the scene of the
World premiere of the 1952 Academy Award-winning film,
"The Greatest Show on Earth,' which was mostly filmed on
location in Sarasota. Until 1959, Sarasota was home to
The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, which was featured
in the film starring Charleton Heston, Betty Hutton, Jimmy Stewart.
In 1960, the circus moved to the then-new Venice Arena where it
stayed until 1992.
Art does meet life in Venice.

Get away to the 1


2


hours of Sebring


BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER
It's time for sports car aficionados to rev up
their engines and head to Sebring.
Located in central Florida, the Sebring Inter-
national Raceway is preparing to host the annual
12 Hours of Sebring endurance race on Saturday.
Sebring is the oldest road race track in North
America. Its 12 Hours of Sebring endurance race
is part of the American Le Mans Series.
All the legends have raced at Sebring Mario
Andretti, A. J. Foyt, Dan Gurney, Stirling Moss
-in performance cars built by the world's great
manufacturers such as Ferrari, Porsche, Jaguar,
Audi, Ford, Maserati, Aston Martin and Nissan,
according to information in a race brochure.
At this year's race, owner Dr. Don Panoz,
developer of the nicotine patch, and his ad-
ministrative crew will celebrate the track's 60th
anniversary
Panoz Motorsports Group will honor the city's
airport, where the race track is located, for its
70th anniversary The site is an old U.S. Army
airport at Sebring Regional Airport. Panoz
purchased the track in 1998, added some $6 mil-
lion in improvements and a hotel, the 122-room
Chateau Elan which faces the track's famous
hairpin turn. He said it is the only race track in the
country with such a hotel.
"We're going to combine the celebrations,' said
Jesse McClelland, raceway director of operations.
"There will be fly-overs, parachutes and fireworks,


and a lot more people will probably show up.
About 163,000 showed up in 2011, McClelland
said.
Gates open today when people start arriv-
ing and claiming their reserved parking space
for their car, truck or RV.The "12-hour" is like a
festival, with more than 140 food vendors and
exhibitors selling food, beverages and rides.
Tickets for the 12-hour race are available
online at http://sebringracewaycom or by phone
at 800-626-7223. The Superticket is usually
purchased as a two-day, four-day or Saturday-
only ticket. Prices range from from $100 to $120.
Children 12 and under are free with a paying
adult for general admission.
Hotel rooms in the immediate area will be
scarce this weekend but there are some 1,500
rooms in Highlands County and several camp-
grounds and RV parks.
Visit www.highlandscvb.com/places.
Reserved trackside parking and first-come,
first-serve parking are available for a fee. Go to
http://sebringracewaycom/faqs for more informa-
tion.
For those who love the thrill of performance
racecars whining along a stretch of track, the an-
nual 12 Hours of Sebring could be just the ticket
for a late winter getaway
The Sebring International Raceway is located
at 113 Midway Drive, Sebring.

Venice Theatre presents its version of 'Avenue Q'


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Just in time for tax season is "Avenue Q" the
smash musical about an eclectic group of
people in a special New York City neighbor-
hood.
This is a musical featuring Muppet-like char-
acters but strictly for adults, mostly for subject
matter. It will play Thursday through April 15 in
the Pinkerton Theatre at Venice Theatre. The
book was written by Jeff Whitty with music and
lyrics by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx.
Last year, starring Steve Dawson in the lead
role of Princeton, "Avenue Q" earned rave reviews
for its extended run at Sarasota's Golden Apple
Dinner Theatre.
Dawson even had a hand in the puppets, liter-
ally making them (with David Walker) as well as
operating the one of Princeton, the musicals' lead
character.
Princeton, armed with his BA in English, is
ready to take on the world. Instead of being of-
fered a six-figure job he ends up living on Avenue
Q with a likeable group of unlikely neighbors -
many of whom are also Muppet-like characters.
It is the interplay of people and puppets as much
as the diversity of characters and Princeton's
optimism that makes the show a winner from the
first note to the last. It was extended at least twice
at the Apple.
Dawson also will do the show at Venice but
this time as its director. Kyle Luckett who has
proven himself capable of handling most any
role that rolls his way, will portray Princeton.
The motley crew of neighbors include Brian
(Kelly Leissler), Christmas Eve (Kako Kitano);
Gary Coleman (Lauren Kelly) the landlord;
Kate Monster and Lucy (Caitlin Longstreet);


Trekkie Monster (William Murphy) is excited to
meet Lucy (Caitlyn Longstreet) in"Avenue Q" at
the Venice Theatre.

Mrs. T Nicky Hand, Trekkie Hand, Ricky (body)
and Bad Idea Bear (Rebecca Phippard); Nicky,
Trekkie Monster, Bad Idea Bear, Newcomer, the
voice of Ricky (William Murphy) and backstage
puppeteers (Liz Pascoe and Lisa Figueroa).
Consider that Coleman the landlord resembles
the late TV star of the same name. Others in the
neighborhood include a kindergarten teacher,
a therapist without clients, a monster with an
addiction, an out-of-work stand-up comic and a
Republican investment banker.
The songs include "It Sucks to Be Me,' "Every.
one's a Little Bit Racist,' and "The Internet is for
Porn."The song titles alone show why this show
is for adults and not children, even if it does have
Muppet-like puppets on stage. That said, even
those adults who usually do not care for adult-

Go


back to Old


Florida at DeSoto'


Pioneer Day


BY CAROL MAHLER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Where can you find swamp cabbage,
strawberry shortcake and barbecued
ribs? Where can you dip candles, use
a pitcher pump and play with non-electric toys?
Where can you watch blacksmithing, butter
churning, and basket-weaving?
Find family fun, barbecue, history and more
at the DeSoto County Historical Society's Eighth
Annual Pioneer Day and Barbecued Rib Cook-off
from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at DeSoto Park, on
State Road 70 just west of Arcadia.
The festival is an official Florida Heritage
Month event (www.floridaheritagemonth.com).
The offices of Governor Rick Scott and Secretary
of State Ken Detzner have designated Thursday
through April 15 as a month-long celebration of
the cultural heritage of Florida.
Bebe Jackson, chairman of the Pioneer Day
committee, said, "Our Pioneer Day is a perfect fit
for Florida Heritage Month. We are honored and
proud that DeSoto County's history will be part of
the state's celebration"'
The festival will offer demonstrations of
old-fashioned skills such as woodwork, soap-
making, quilting, candle-dipping, basket-making,
blacksmithing and churning butter with cream
donated by the Dakin Family Dairy in Myakka City
- and biscuits to sample the butter. Take yourself
back to Florida's early heritage when pioneers


lived off the land.
Also featured are "whip crackers," musical
entertainment, legendary characters and a skit, a
frontier shootout, vintage cars, antique engines,
a classic fire truck, Florida native plants and
animals, with pony rides for the children. Many
volunteers will be dressed in period costume,
helping to recreate Florida's frontier era.
The free "Discover History" children's area will
have a pitcher pump for water, cane pole fishing,
a scrub board and wash pot, orange juicing,
handkerchief dolls, writing with a "dip pen" and
other hands-on experiences, plus old-fashioned
toys and classic games.
Mosaic is hosting a fossil dig plus offering
tours of the educational displays in their Mosaic
Express bus.
Jackson said, "We'll have lots of special and
traditional Florida food, such as cane syrup,
homemade jams and jellies, boiled peanuts,
swamp cabbage, strawberry shortcake and
more. But you really want to save room for the
barbecued ribs. Five teams of emergency service
personnel will complete for first, second, and
third place trophies by cooking the most mouth-
watering, lip-smacking, finger-licking sweet and
tangy ribs ever."
Admission is $2; free for children 12 and under.
Parking is free.
For more information, call Jackson at
863-494-6607.

Epiphany students to perform 'Seussical Jr.'


PROVIDED BY THE VENICE THEATRE
Students from Epiphany Cathedral School in
Venice will be performing the delightful musi-
cal, "Seussical Jr.' at the Venice Theatre at 2
p.m. on Saturday and 7 p.m. Sunday-Monday.
Directed by Venice Theatre's principal teacher
and notable actor, director and choreographer,
Brad Wages, "Seussical Jr.' is combining the
talents of the beginning and intermediate theatre
students at ECS. The production is the product of
a partnership formed between ECS and Venice
Theatre seven years ago. Epiphany students
attend daily instruction at the theatre during the
school year that fulfills the students' theatre arts
credits for the year. This year is the third year that
a fully-produced musical theatre production will
be presented.
Irene Lynch, principal of Epiphany Cathedral
School, said, "Epiphany Cathedral School is
blessed to have such a wonderful partnership
with Venice Theatre. Our vision is dedicated to
developing the whole child and acknowledging
all our students' talents and God-given gifts. They
have the opportunity to participate in all aspects
of theatre under the direction of the talented
and professional staff at Venice Theatre. ECS
students not only receive an outstanding educa-
tional experience, but they also receive hands-on
instruction in set design, stage productions,
costumes, lighting and stage presentation. We
look forward to offering a performing arts program
at ECS for many years thanks to Venice Theatre."
Sandy Davisson, Venice Theater's director
of Education and Outreach exclaimed,"Hat's off
to Principal Irene Lynch of ECS who knows the
power of performing arts. The students learn
skills like problem solving, thinking on their feet,


teamwork and most important the power of
imagination which makes anything possible. Our
ECS collaboration is one of the most important
types of programming that Venice Theatre does.
We reach out into the community to bring the
theatre arts to sectors that otherwise may not
have them available."
Director and teacher Brad Wages said, "We're
getting very excited about'Seussical Jr.'The stu-
dent actors are learning songs, dance numbers,
staging and creating the larger-than-life char-
acters of Dr. Seuss as they prepare for opening
night.'Seussical' is based on classic characters
including the cat in the hat, Horton the Elephant,
Gertrude McFuzz, Mazie and JoJo the Who. It's a
fast-paced musical romp that teaches the value of
imagination, commitment and loyalty."
Wages goes on to say, "The Venice Theatre/
ECS partnership has proven to be a success,
not only artistically, but in the daily lives of the
students. I have watched them as they develop
the ability to use both sides of their brain. They
are thinking outside of the box, finding their own
voice and experiencing higher levels of self-
confidence and assurance. To me, seeing their
self-confidence is what makes the program and
the arts invaluable. The students also learn the
value of commitment and the importance of work-
ing as a group toward a larger goal."
The multi-disciplinary program designed by
Venice Theatre and Epiphany is structured to
satisfy students of all ability levels who share
a love for the performing arts. The discipline of
a performing arts program provides effective
techniques and skills that carry over to students'
social and academic development.
Lynch reiterated, "ECS looks at the whole
child. We focus not only on academics, but on

character and spiritual development. The arts are
such an important avenue for children to learn
creativity, expression, public-speaking skills and
self-confidence. The partnership with Venice The-
atre helps our children develop skills that cannot
be learned in their other studies."
Tickets are $10. Contact Lynne at ECS at

The Venice Theatre is located at 140 W. Tampa

Peace River National Art Festival returns to Laishley Park


PROVIDED BY THE VISUAL ARTS CENTER
Charlotte County's only outdoor juried fine
arts show, the sixth Annual Peace River
National Art Festival returns to Laish-
ley Park, Punta Gorda from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Saturday-Sunday.
The artists who show at this festival are the
creators of the original artwork that they sell-
they are not buying from catalogs and re-selling
work. Art mediums already confirmed are:
watercolor, oil, and acrylic paintings, photography,
metal sculpture, jewelry, art glass, fiber/leather
art, clay work, drawings, wood and mixed media.
Art teachers from Sallie Jones Elementary and
middle schools L. A. Ainger and Punta Gorda will be
on hand raising funds for their art programs by sell-
ing original art made and donated by students.
The featured artists for this year are local artist
Mary Taglieri, an award-winning artist and fre-
quent exhibitor at the VAC and Marcus Thomas,
whose pink flamingo painting has become the
festival's iconic emblem for a second year.
After earning her Bachelor of Fine Arts, Taglieri
worked in graphic design, photography, art direc-
tion and commercial art. At one point, she had
a dream job as vice president of production at a
publishing company in Hawaii.The experience in
the corporate world helped prepare her for the
business side of the art world. She eventually left
the corporate world to follow the path she knew
she was meant to take. She became a fine artist
full time.
Taglieri says, "Art is the dance of creativity
swirled into the physical realm. That creativity is
spirit." She is an artist led by her love of nature
and inspired by a personal sense of knowing that
beautiful art can heal. Whether impressionistic
landscapes of flowering fields or the powerful


drama of volcanoes and the sea inspire her art,
viewers respond to the art that heals them most.
"Art can bring a sense of harmony or balance,
depending on the colors, forms, and feelings of
the particular painting to which one is attracted.
Some colors create a high sense of energy while
others calm. Art keeps us in touch with ourselves
and our spirit."
You can usually find Taglieri painting and
exhibiting in the Downtown Punta Gorda farmer's
market on Saturdays. She has received awards
and international recognition for her paintings that
hang in private collections around the world.
Taglieri has recently made Punta Gorda her
home. Her paintings of Florida's inlands and
beaches are made spectacular by her use of
brilliant color and brushwork.
Taglieri has donated a painting titled "Mother
Ocean" to raise funds for the Visual Arts Center,
before and during the festival. For more informa-
tion on Taglieri, visit www.taglierigallery.com.
"Enjoying life in full stride," is the optimistic
view of life from Marcus Thomas whose origi-
nal life intention was in commercial recreation.
A tragic ski accident paralyzed him from the
shoulders down shortly after graduating. "After
one year of recovery and a determined pursuit
for a fulfilling life, I discovered the art of painting,"
he said.
He received a set of Crayola watercolors in
Christmas 1986. Without prior experience, an
adventure began that has provided tremendous
enjoyment. Through painting he remains active
outdoors, visually absorbing all that nature
provides, documenting interests and sharing his
passion for life. Also sharing this passion is wife
Anne. "Without her love and tireless enthusiasm,
the artistic pursuits and happiness that I cherish
would not be possible. Having been together for


17 years we have battled to find direction in our
bizarre, difficult and sometimes chaotic life."
An intricate part of that direction has been
Anne's incredible effort to discover methods for
showing what Thomas can accomplished with a
paint brush which he wields with his mouth.The
marketing of originals, limited edition prints and
an always growing show schedule has paved the
way to our current strength.
For more information on Thomas, visit
www.marcusthomasartist.com.
Both artists are among 100 fine artists, many
of whom will be demonstrating their talents and
are happy to talk to show guests about their work,
philosophy, struggles, and joy of creation during
the festival.
Food and beverage will be available for purchase.

born Mike McCarthy, Boston Joey Carroll, New
York Jim Campbell and from Inchicore, a suburb

McCarthy's no-holds-barred humor has landed
him on Comedy Central and Showtime. The
"comedy barbarian,' as he calls himself, takes no
prisoners when it comes to poking fun at society's
most sensitive topics. Carroll has been described
as a cross between George Carlin and Dennis
Miller. His no holds barred style has won him the
respect of his fellow comedians and the laughter
of his audiences. Edgy is his favorite way to work.
Campbell began performing stand up comedy
as a teenager in NewYork. In 2007 his comedy
career became a profession when he joined The
Irish Comedy Tour and started doing stand up

Redfish tournament to benefit PCHS football


BY RACHAEL TAFT
STAFF WRITER
The annual Pirate Redfish Tournament, a
fundraiser for Port Charlotte High School's
football program, will be held Saturday,
starting off from Laishley Park.
While the tournament has previously been held
at other times of the year, event organizer Gary Ing-
man, owner of Ingman Marine, said the spring date
should ensure a great turnout at the tournament. He
estimated 30 to 50 teams would participate.
"The good thing is this year we have focused
our tournament and put it smack dab in the heart
of redfish season,' he said. "In the springtime fish
start changing their pattern. It's one of the better
times'" He added that the weather would be
better, with no tropical storms to worry about and


little chance for a cold front.
"It's a phenomenal fishing estuary that we
have here," Ingman said. "Charlotte Harbor has
so much to offer; we're one of the only areas that
has these local redfish all the time."
The tournament prizes are one thing that sets
it apart from other redfish tournaments.The first-
place team with the two heaviest redfish will receive
a new 70-horsepower, four-strokeYamaha outboard
engine valued at more than $9,000. There will also
be prizes for second through fifth place.
Also, for the third year in a row, the tournament
will include the Rivals Across the River tourna-
ment. Students, alumni, teachers and employees
from Port Charlotte and Charlotte high schools
will compete against each other. The fisherman
who catches the biggest fish will win $50 and

'Star Queen


Let's Go!


- An original musical


PROVIDED BY CAROLINE MCCOY

he Englewood United Methodist Church
Music Ministry Concert Series presents
"Star Queen" from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. today.
This original musical enactment of Biblical Queen
Esther's story will be performed by its creators
Tommy and John Thomas (J.T) Oaks.
J.T was inspired to write the music, lyrics, and
dialogue for "Star Queen" by his preacher father
Tommy Tommy and J.T collaborated in writing the
book of the show as they have on more than a
dozen other musical theater pieces.
Tommy was the first person in the world to
receive a master's degree in storytelling, earned
at East Tennessee University following his bach-
elor's from Johnson Bible College and a Master's
from Emmanuel School of Religion. He contin-


ued with his focus on English, education and
storytelling for a doctorate from the University of
Tennessee.
J.T grew up hearing Tommy preach, bringing
out the humor in Bible stories and frequently
comment that the book of Esther should be a
musical. "Star Queen" unfolded when J.T went
to the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, to study
jazz but ended up focusing on writing for the
theater.
This show includes about 20 musical numbers
ranging from pop to country, lounge-lizard style
ballads and Latin-fueled tunes to songs with
full-out Broadway belting. It is a colorful, campy,
interactive, high-energy two-man story of the
Jewish queen of Persia who saved her people
from extermination which led to celebration of the
Feast of Purim.


See www.JohnThomasOaks.com for more.
No tickets are required. A free-will offering will
be collected. Nursery services will be available.

Celtic Ray Public House


ready for St. Patrick's Day


BY JON BAUMANN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Punta Gorda will be home to one of the
biggest St. Patrick's Day celebrations in
Florida Saturday as the Celtic Ray pre-
pares for over 3,000 Irish revelers.
The Ray has been working steadily on a
building expansion that will nearly triple the
size of the business and establish a second
floor bar area, all with the goal of opening
the expansion on what is clearly its' biggest
night of business each year. "It will be open,"
said Kevin Doyle, co-owner of the Celtic Ray
with his son Max, even as the finishing touches
continue.
As in the past, a tent will be added to the back
of the property, complete with an outside bar and
traditional Irish music will be heard throughout
St. Patrick's Day. Featured performers will include
Emily Ann Thompson, known for her traditional
Celtic fiddle tunes and Celtic Ray house band
Flurgin, providing traditional Irish music that will
put the party crowd in a mood to celebrate Irish
food, drink and camaraderie.
The Ray's fish and chips dinner is the food
favorite, not just on St. Patrick's Day but everyday,
while corned beef and cabbage will be added to
the Ray menu for one day only Doyle expects to
serve at least 800 meals on the holiday.
Doyle, born in Dublin, Ireland, opened the


Celtic Ray Public House in 1997, where there's
never been a cover charge to get in. "The only
thing I missed about the old country was a
pub," Doyle explained, "There's nothing else
that I missed."
There are no waitresses to serve you. All
orders are taken at the bar and the reason for
that is simple. A pub is a place where people
gather and socialize. When you move through
the Celtic Ray to order a meal or a drink, you
meet people you might otherwise never have met.
That's the experience Kevin Doyle wants for all of
his customers.
To help with the good times, the Celtic Ray has
over 12 beers on tap and another 30 different
beers in the bottle. They feature international la-
gers, stouts and ales, while also offering wine and
ciders for those wishing for something sweeter.
"Our goal is to empty 100 kegs this year,' said
Doyle, explaining that 88 kegs were finished on
last year's St. Patrick Day.
With the new expansion ready to go, it seems
to be a goal easily achievable.
The Celtic Ray Public House will be open
from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. on St. Patrick's Day. The
Celtic Ray is located at 145 E. Marion Ave., Punta
Gorda. For more information, go to celticraynet or
like the Celtic Ray's Facebook page.

Placida Seafood Festival supports Project Graduation


BY CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The Placida Seafood Festival scheduled for
Saturday-Sunday on the grounds of the
Fishery Restaurant is by far the largest
fundraiser for Lemon Bay High School's 2012
Project Graduation celebration. Arts and crafts, a
beverage tent, and of course, fresh seafood and
other food items will be offered for sale. Michael Hirst
and the Caribbean soul band Impulse will provide
live entertainment. Admission is free. Parking is $3.
During the two-day event, 45 parents and
community volunteers will assist with parking
for festival attendees. All parking proceeds will
benefit Project Graduation.
Steve Gardiner, vice president of the board
for Lemon Bay Project Graduation, explained
that fundraising and donations from the com-
munity have been low due to the downturn of the
economy this year. He hopes that "The Placida
Seafood Festival will be the single greatest op-
portunity to raise funds for the 2012 graduation
night event."'
Project Graduation is an all-night party for
graduating seniors of Lemon Bay High School.
It is a well supervised, drug and alcohol-free
celebration held in a safe and secure environ-
ment. Immediately following the LBHS graduation
ceremony, the 300 plus graduates will be treated
to an evening of fun at the Englewood United
Methodist Church Fellowship Hall located at 700
E. Dearborn St., Englewood. Graduates can expect
a surprise theme, non-stop games, food, beverages,
entertainment, smoothies, and prizes.The event
begins around 10 p.m. and ends at 6 a.m.


Parents and volunteers are making sure that
Project Graduation, the last time that the LBHS
class of 2012 will be celebrating together as a
group, will be a unique and memorable experi-
ence. Chaperones are willing to go 36 hours
without sleeping. "It's a lot of work,"' according to
Gardiner, "but we all receive great gratification
from what we do, that is to protect the children of
Englewood and assure that all goes well."
For more information or to make a donation to
Project Graduation contact Lemon Bay High School,
Project Graduation, Inc. PO. Box 191, Englewood,
FL 34295 or email projgradlbhs@yahoo.com.
The Placida Seafood Festival will take place
from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. on Saturday-Sunday on
the grounds of the Fishery Restaurant located at

Emma Diamond and Bill Wilson

Scamotz Tomato Pies


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
No type of person makes as good a cook
as the person who loves his or her job.
That is someone who you know will put
their heart and soul into absolutely everything
that comes out of their kitchen.
Emma Diamond and Bill Wilson, the owners
of Scamotz Tomato Pies, are just those types of
people. "This business is about relationships,"
said Diamond. "We're here because there's no
other place we want to be."
Five years ago Diamond and Wilson were
not in the pizza business, but having moved to
Florida from Connecticut, had seen an unfulfilled
need in the local restaurants.
"We were living in Punta Gorda and couldn't
find a good pizza," Diamond said. "One day I
bought a Venice Gondolier and a flyer fell out on
the floor"'
As it turned out, the flyer was advertising the
fact that the space that housed Geraldi's Pizza
was for sale. "We decided to buy this place before
we even saw it," said Wilson.
In May of 2007, the two bought the restaurant
and opened Scamotz Tomato Pies. The name
is a variation on scamorza cheese, an Italian
cow's milk cheese. "When Bill was growing up in
Connecticut, they would put all the kids to bed
and order a pizza," said Diamond. "If there was
a slice left in the morning, he would get one with


scamorza cheese on it"
Though Diamond and Wilson had not owned a
restaurant before Scamotz Tomato Pies, Diamond
speaks like a nutritionist, and cooks that way, too.
"I was a raw food vegan for years," she said. "I've
been studying (nutrition) for a long time" Because
of that background, the pizzas at Scamotz To-
mato Pies are full of fresh, homemade ingredients,
combined with alternately delicate and bold flavors.
"One of our most popular pies is our roasted
veggie pie," said Diamond. "The crust is a thin,
NewYork-style crust. I would call our pies'gour-
met with character"
You can order one of their five signature pies
or create one of your own from a list of delicious
toppings.
In addition to their pies, Scamotz Tomato
Pies also specializes in fresh, creative salads,
like the eternal summer salad. Served with a
combination of fresh fruits, vegetables, pecans
and shaved parmigiano reggiano, it's topped with
a homemade white balsamic mandarin orange
vinaigrette. The salads are made to order, not
pre-assembled and the homemade dressings are
all cleverly named.
"We have 23 different salad dressings," said
Diamond. "I make them, taste them and then the
name will hit me."
There are 52 seats in Scamotz Tomato Pies,
including both the indoor and outdoors dining
areas.

'21 Jump Street'


BY COLIN COVERT
STAR TRIBUNE (MINNEAPOLIS)
Hollywood is littered with the carcasses of
one-note performers who flare brightly, and
quickly fade. Moviegoers fall for a cutup
(Michael Cera) or a hunk (Chris Klein), only to ditch
them when the affair grows stale. An implacable
desire for surprise is hard-wired into the audience's
DNA. So performers who can veer from that one
note that brought them fame will thrive.
Actors like Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum.
Their new buddy comedy "21 Jump Street,"
opening Friday, reworks their usual screen
personas. A significantly slimmed-down Hill
gets some sweetly funny romantic scenes, and
Tatum plays his beefcake character for laughs.
I interviewed the odd couple about "21 Jump
Street" in a joint phone call last week.
"Channing has this great metaphor" for their
unlikely partnership, Hill said. "If I was work-
ing beside another person who'd done a lot of
comedy, it would be like what Channing calls the
eighth bite of steak. It's still steak, it's still a good
meal but you've had seven other bites of it and
you know what it tastes like already. I thought it
was really important to have me and someone
who came from more of an action background."
The idea of remaking the Reagan-era TV
series about young-looking undercover cops in
high school was pitched to Hill around the time
of his success in "Superbad."While he was "not
a massive fan of the show," his interest sparked
when he saw it as a story of adults reverting to


the immature behaviors and insecurities they
thought they'd outgrown. "The movie I was in-
terested in creating was like'Bad Boys' meets
a John Hughes movie," said Hill, who co-wrote
the screenplay.
Tatum, who had never before attempted
comedy, figured he wouldn't get a better ap-
prenticeship than working alongside Hill.
"He promised me he'd take care of me and
that was really the whole reason of me jumping
on to this thing. It took some assuring. I was
open to challenging myself like this and then
he had to hold my hand and stroke my head
and tell me that everything was going to be
OK. I told him I'd blame it on him if I wasn't
funny and that was my out,"Tatum said.
"I was a fear-driven beast the whole time, to
not let Channing down," said Hill. "As an actor
and a producer, I've been on both sides of
being convinced to be in a movie and having
to convince other people to be in a movie. The
best thing ever is when you meet someone you
like and respect and they're just cool about
diving into something different."
"I would have beaten him up if he failed,"
Tatum added. "Comedy's so much harder than
drama, actors ought to try it more. For comedy
you have to put yourself out there and it's a
confusing, fickle thing. If you try to be funny,
you're not going to be funny.You've got to just
really believe it and that's the thing Jonah
taught me."
"21 Jump Street" is less a sharp departure


21 Jump Street (R)
When cops Schmidt (Jonah Hill)
and Jenko (Channing Tatum) join
the secret Jump Street unit, they
use their youthful appearances
to go under cover as high-school
students. They trade in their
guns and badges for back-


for the stars than the latest evolutionary step in
their careers. Hill was Oscar-nominated for his
role as Brad Pitt's statistics-geek sidekick in the
baseball drama "Moneyball."Tatum's crowded
2012 release slate includes two movies with art-
film icon Steven Soderbergh, January's martial-
arts revenge thriller "Haywire" and the upcoming
"Magic Mike,' an ensemble piece based on his
pre-fame experiences as a male stripper.
Tatum bemoaned the scarcity of such genre-
bending experiments. "That's what's kind of
wrong with dramas and action movies now.
There's not enough thrill, not enough comedy.
Movies have gotten so simple-minded that we
need to fill them out with a little more."
That sameness is why there's a drought of
worthwhile dramas in production now, he said.
"Drama's a bad word right now in the busi-
ness. If we put more real life in dramas and
more entertainment maybe they'd make a good
comeback."


packs, and set out to shut down
a dangerous drug ring. But, as
time goes on, Schmidt and Jenko
discover that high school is nothing
like it was just a few years earlier --
and, what's more, they must again
confront the teenage terror and
anxiety they thought they had left
behind.

"No one wants to see the same thing over and
over again.You don't want to make the same
thing over and over again," Hill said. "For me it's
not like, 'Hey, look at me, I can do this.' I'd just like
to make dramas and comedies, and doing that
well in my last movie allowed me to do that."
Each actor reaches beyond the well-known hits
when asked which of his costar's movies he likes
best. Hill named Tatum's unheralded 2006 New
York drama "A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints."
A virtual unknown at the time, he played a prison-
bound street tough alongside Robert Downey Jr.,
Chazz Palminteri and Dianne Wiest.
"I think his performance as Antonio is one of
the greatest performances by any young actor
ever," Hill said. "It's so raw, it's so good."
Both actors said they're eager to collaborate
again, and the opportunity may not be too far
off. The studio has such high hopes for "21
Jump Street" that the script for a sequel is
already in the works.

Obsessive-compulsive and

hand-washing disorder


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I have a 26-year-old,
beautiful and intelligent
daughter who washes
her hands constantly.
The skin on her hands
is red and raw. She says
she knows it's ridiculous,
but she keeps on doing
it. What's wrong with
her? Can she be helped?
I have no idea who can
help her. Is this just a
habit? R.S.
ANSWER: Your daugh-
ter can be helped. The
doctor to see is a psychi-
atrist. If you don't know
one, your family doctor
can refer her to one.
She has obsessive-
compulsive disorder. An
obsession is a recurring
idea that intrudes into
her thoughts and causes
anxiety. The compulsion
is a ritual-like act that
she feels compelled to
perform in order to free
herself from the anxiety-
provoking obsession -
her hand-washing. This
isn't just a habit; it's an
irresistible urge to gain
peace of mind. Many
people have OC disorder.
Another compulsion is
checking, time and time
again, to see if the oven
is turned off. Repeatedly
straightening the fringe
of a carpet is another
example.
OC disorder can
disrupt a person's life.
A skilled therapist can
convince your daughter
that her hand-washing
ritual is counterpro-
ductive. The doctor
will help her erase the
thought that prompts
her to repeat this ac-
tion time and again.
He or she will show her
the irrationality of her
behavior. The process is
called cognitive behav-
ior therapy.
Medicines can restore
normal brain chemistry.
An imbalance of chemi-
cal messengers in the
brain also is part of the
problem.
Urge your daughter
to see a professional.
She doesn't want her life
ruined by something
that can be successfully
treated.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
Please furnish informa-
tion on basal cell cancer.
I had four removed. How
did I get them? Are they
a threat to life? B.B.
ANSWER: Basal cell
cancers are skin can-
cers that arise from the
lowest layer of skin, the
basal layer. Exposure
to sunlight and having
a fair complexion are
the two greatest risk
factors for developing


this common kind of
skin cancer. The typi-
cal basal cell cancer is a
scaly, red, slightly raised,
small patch of skin that
develops a central sore.
The sore may heal, but it
always comes back.
Basal cell cancers
are not usually a threat
to life. They can bore
deeply into the tissues
beneath them if they are
not removed.
Doctors and patients
have a number of ways
to successfully get rid
of them. Their size and
location dictates the best
treatment.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I recently read in the
newspaper that limiting
salt is no longer believed
to be an important part
of treating high blood
pressure.
I have taken medicine
for high blood pressure
for 10 years, and now my
pressure is fine. I have
been strict about my salt
intake. At first I found it
quite disagreeable, but
I have gotten used to it,
and prefer my food not
be salted.
Can I start taking salt
again? I don't really need
to. I'm happy the way
things are. R.B.
ANSWER: I've read the
same articles, and I've
read the original articles
in respected medical
journals. This informa-
tion has stirred up lively
debates.
Your blood pressure
is normal. You like your
food without salt. I'd
stick with your current
regimen. It's working for
you.
Before people ditch
the low-salt diet, they
should wait until this
new information has
been retested and prov-
en beyond a doubt.
Dr. Donohue regrets
that he is unable to
answer individual let-
ters, but he will incorpo-
rate them in his column
whenever "'possilW Read-
ers may write him or
request an order form of
available health newslet-

The signs of a good recipe


Dear Heloise: In a recent
column, a reader gave sug-
gestions for how to keep
cookbook pages clean.
Though I understand her
reasoning, I wonder how
younger generations will
know how to find "Mom's"
favorite recipes.
When my cousin passed
away, she had many
cookbooks. Her children
weren't sure which recipes
she used on a regular basis.
I told them to look through
the cookbooks for dirty
pages, then to look at the
recipes on those pages. I'm
sure that many are ones
she made more than once.
As I have gone through my
own mother's cookbooks,
I treasure the splatters
and fingerprints that were
left there by her hands. -
Kathy E, Canton, Ohio
You are right "in my
book"! I just went through
one of my mother's cook-
books looking for an old
recipe, and it was a won-
derful experience to see
those old, old recipe pages
and notes in the margin.
- Heloise

Alternating eggs
Dear Heloise: When I
buy eggs and put them in
the refrigerator, it is dif-
ficult to tell the difference
between the old ones and
the new ones. I have solved
that problem by alternat-
ing the purchase of brown
eggs and white eggs -
easy to spot the difference!
- Barry M., via email
This is a good hint,
Barry. Another hint from
The American Egg Board


Hints from Heloise

is to store eggs in the egg
carton (which will have the
expiration date on it) on a
shelf in the refrigerator, not
in the door.
An informal poll in He-
loise Central showed three
out of four stored eggs in the
carton (two on the shelf and
one in the door). Another
keeps two dozen eggs: one
dozen out of the carton in a
clear, plastic egg container
(tearing the date off the car-
ton to save with the eggs),
and the other carton on the
shelf to be used later.
Where in the fridge do
you keep the eggs? Send to
Heloise@Heloise.com, or
mail to Heloise/Eggs, EO.
Box 795000, San Antonio,
TX 78279. Heloise

Seasoning hint
Dear Heloise: Grow-
ing up in rural Tennessee
gave me a love for such
foods as turnip greens
and seasoned cured ham.
Now, however, I have to
watch my calorie and fat
intake. So, I now use fat-
free beef-flavored bouillon
for the seasoning, and it is
delicious, with almost no
added calories. DougJ.,
Watson, La.

offered me a place to stay, I
accepted.
They treat me like one of
their own, buy me presents
- even introduce me as a
daughter. However, after
my birthday party, Jas-
mine's father came into my
bedroom and took advan-
tage of me. I was scared and
didn't say anything. Over
the past few months, he has
sneaked into my room sev-
eral times to "talk" or rub
my back. He always crosses
the line, and I'm too afraid
to tell him to stop.
I feel sick and guilty
when I see Jasmine or her
mother, and I'm hurt and
ashamed when I see him.
I feel betrayed and con-
fused. I tell myself I do it
"for a place to stay." Is there
forgiveness for me? Please
help. DISTRAUGHT IN
THE NORTHWEST
DEAR DISTRAUGHT: It
appears you ARE "doing it
for a place to stay," and for
your own well-being you
need to make other living
arrangements and get out
of there. You have been
betrayed, and your feelings
are valid. You are not being
treated like a daughter;
you are being coerced by
a man with no conscience
or compassion. Of course
there is forgiveness for
you but first you have to
forgive yourself. Leaving is
the first step.
DEAR ABBY: My boy-
friend, "Ross," and I have
been together for five
years and have a 2-year-
old child. We talk a lot
about marriage and we're
engaged kind of. Ross
asked me and I said yes
four years ago, but no one
knows we're engaged. He
bought me a ring and I
have been wearing it. No-
body has questioned it.
I want to say something
about our plans, but Ross
says he's too nervous and
is afraid my parents will be
angry. I am 23 and unem-
ployed. Ross is 24 and has


Dear Abby

had bad luck with a bunch
of jobs. Our 2-year-old and
I live with my parents. Ross
is currently staying with his
grandparents.
I don't want a big wed-
ding and I'm afraid my
parents will be mad if Ross
and I start planning ours.
How can we break the
news to them? TIMID
IN STOCKTON, CALIE
DEAR TIMID: If Your
boyfriend is too nervous to
tell anyone about the en-
gagement, face it you're
kind of not engaged. If I
were you, I'd hold off mak-
ing any announcements to
your folks until you have
the answers ready to some
questions first, like where
you and Ross plan to live
after the wedding. With
your parents? His grand-
parents? Who do you ex-
pect will be paying for the
wedding you're planning?
"Everyone" may have
ignored the significance
of the ring you're wearing
because neither of you is
ready for marriage.
DEAR ABBY: When buy-
ing a gift for someone and
it arrives with a mail-in
rebate, what do you do?
If you give the person the
rebate, he or she will know
how much you paid for
the gift. If you remove the
UPC code, it looks like you
regifted. How should this
be handled? HAVEN'T
A CLUE IN EAST HART-
FORD, CONN.
DEAR HAVEN'T A CLUE:
Many people regift, and as
long as the item is well-
chosen for the recipient
and is in mint condition,
there's nothing wrong with
the practice. How much
was paid for the item is
beside the point. When
a gift is given, the price
tag is removed. Because
the mail-in rebate would
be a tip-off, it should be
removed, too.


"And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make
you fishers of men." -Matt. 4:19.
Keep on casting, and though some may get away,
our heavenly Father will see that you will have some
to take with you to that eternal home. "He that
winneth souls is wise."

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


I HOROSCOPE I
ARIES (March 21-April 19).You get the sense that
your talent and skills are being used in the wrong
way. Nothing good comes of forcing yourself into a
situation to please those around you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).The latest research sug-
gests that improving your weaknesses, while noble
in intent, may very well be a waste of time. Finding
out your strengths and focusing there will make you
more effective.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21).You carrya question


answer it. Believing this will help to relieve the de-
gree of anxiety that goes along with not knowing.
CANCER (June 22-July 22).You'll be excellent at
motivating yourself.Time pressures can really work
for you now. You'll excel with the creative tension
that happens when you're close to a deadline.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Self-discipline isn't fun. In
fact, it can be quite uncomfortable. But you'd rather
suffer the discomfort of self-discipline than the
pain of regret.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Steer clear of dented


Similarly, be wary of people who talk of old battles
and of being victimized, hurt or wronged.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23).You're a splendidly
expressive conversationalist. So what if some of the
things you say don't come out quite right?What
counts is that you are contributing. You're a giver.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Determination and
resolve will pay off, though it would be nice not to
feel that life is an uphill battle. Everything you do
shouldn't require such a great deal of energy.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Ideas bounce


able to pursue each one to its natural conclusion.
But you can't.You have to prioritize.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.19). You may value
someone's opinion and still not agree with it.
You'll run into a case or two like this today.The
important thing is to stay humble, appreciative and
diplomatic.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).You want to spend
time playing with your loved ones and creating
fun memories. Remember that working together
builds a bond, too maybe one that's even more


around with you now. Your mind will find a way to cars because they show their history of collision.


PISCES (Feb.19-March 20).Sudden changes are
around the corner. In order to get ready, build up
yourstrength, flexibility and stamina.This calls for
exercise, reading, meditation and extreme self-care.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 14). People are only
as young as their dreams. Yours happen to be par-
ticularly youthful, lofty and colorful and extremely
possible. There will be a surprise twist in April that
sends you in a new direction. Friends, allies and
partners help you with an important project from
May through July. Leo and Virgo people adore you.
Your lucky numbers are: 40,7,1,33 and 18.

Championships held in Seattle.
Against South's three no trump
West led the jack of spades. Declarer
discarded a heart from dummy and
ducked the trick when East followed
with the king, risking being held to
10 tricks if the defender shifted to a
heart. But East saw no reason to try
anything more than return a spade.
Declarer won with the ace, then ran
the queen of diamonds, which held,
and continued with the nine, West
following with the eight.
South knew that his opponent was
a good enough defender not to cover
the queen of diamonds when it was
led and, if East had held up the king
and another diamond finesse was
taken, he would not be able to get
back to dummy in time unless one of
the defenders held a singleton king of
clubs. Since he was already sure of
10 tricks, he rose with the ace of
diamonds and took the club finesse to
bring home 11 tricks and a near top
board.
