New Challenger



plan is the pits


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Venice may be close to
deciding where to place a Chal-
lenger baseball complex at
the Wellfield, where current
lime pits exist.
It's been almost nine months
since the last discussion about
where to build a more substan-
tial rubberized ballfield for
handicapped players.
A few weeks ago City
Manager Ed Lavallee sent a
letter to Kimley-Horn and
Associates on behalf of Venice


Challenger Baseball saying it
can proceed with a redesign of
the ballfield plan to an area that
is currently a series of lime pits.
The lime pits are a byproduct
of removing chemical deposits
from city water.
It could be a two-for-one
compromise for the city.
Challenger will assume the
cost of removing the lime pits,
while the Bridle Oaks subdi-
vision, which opposed the
original site behind its homes,
would see the ballfields moved

Merchants give



season high marks


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Area merchants say this has
been a bumper season, with
many more visitors to the
island, overflowing restaurants
- and an abundance of traffic,
with drivers searching for park-
ing spaces.
Happy, relaxed and spend-
ing, visitors have crowded
downtown sidewalks and kept
cash registers ringing, pointing
to even busier seasons ahead,
as confirmed by higher rental
inquiries for 2013.
Business owners on West
Miami Avenue seem to be the
most enthusiastic.
"It has been wild and crazy,
and one of the best seasons
we have had in a long, long
time," said Cindy Hayden,
owner of Chez La Femme
Salon in the Breezeway on
West Miami Avenue. "I have
been here since 1961 and
this is the best year ever, with
everybody enjoying Venice
very much."
Margaret Chisar, owner of
Margaret's Tailoring & Fashion
Boutique, 225 W Miami Ave.,
was a little hesitant, but said it
has been a very good year for
tailoring, although not as good
for retail. It was more crowded
with people having fun trying


on things, she said, but not
buying.
"In five months since open-
ing I have hit my sales projec-
tions for the whole year," said
Chuck Cyr, owner of Burgundy
Square Caf6, 227W Miami Ave.
Eighty percent of his cus-
tomers are local residents, the
others tourists walking the
avenues. Store owners have
told him he is a big part of
the success in bringing more
people to West Miami Avenue.
"It has been great, wonder-
ful season, more than I ever
expected, and we have doubled
at both stores," said Roberta
Pettigrove, owner of Fifi's of
Venice, 223 W. Miami Ave. "A
lot more tourists are coming to
Miami Avenue because we are
driving them from our other
store."
"I love the visitors the
more the merrier," said Gregg
Silvia Jr. of Althea's, 220 W.
Miami Ave. "It has been a good
season, but not an over-
abundant season."
Wendy Hager, manager of
Patchington, 136 W Venice
Ave., enthused at a pretty good
season for her store and all
their fashion shows. More tour-
ists visited the store compared
to last year and sales are up,

SEASON 115


Pollution not from humans


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Preliminary DNA testing
indicates the bacteria that
occasionally close down Ven-
ice Beach are not from human
waste, but from animals.
"That's great news," said City
Engineer Kathleen Weeden.
"We were looking for confir-
mation that it wasn't related to
sanitation sewers.
"It's likely animal in nature
- birds, dogs, rodents. At this
point we're doing additional
analysis to give us a better idea
of what species is the likely
contributor."


The initial finding, she said,
"is huge."
"It's the same conclusion
they found at Siesta Key,"
Weeden said. "Animals were
the source and stagnation was
providing for replication and
conveyance of the bacteria."
Also good news: Animal
waste doesn't pose the same
risk as human sewage.
"They are not the same
health risk," Weeden said.
The city took the DNA sam-
ples from a catch basin after
digging up the intersection of
The Esplanade and Granada
Avenue and removing old
pipes part of a new effort to


track down the elusive source
of pollution that occasionally
closes Venice Beach.
The last beach closure was
Jan. 26, lasting almost a week.
Since then, the city hired
a new wastewater engineer,
James Clinch, and tasked him
full time with finding the pollu-
tion source.
Clinch began sampling
ocean water simultaneously
with county health officials at
the beach, the jetty inlet and
in Roberts Bay.
Public Works conducted
smoke testing and dye testing

POLLUTION 115


Fire causes evacuations

Country Club to fight brush fires in South Venice Sunday.


By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER

Crews were still dousing hot
spots Monday morning after
a five-alarm, 12-acre fire that
started around 3 p.m. Sunday.
According to Sarasota
County Fire Capt. Susan
Pearson, no one was injured
and none of the 30 houses
threatened in the Alliga-
tor Place-Seaboard Avenue
neighborhood in South Venice
burned Sunday. However, the
blaze, which is under investi-
gation by the state Division of
Forestry, caused residents in


about 30 homes to be evacu-
ated until about 6 p.m.
"A power grid was shut off
due to the fire," Pearson said
Monday. "There was about
3,700 homes without power
at that point. Once the power
was turned on, residents had
to wait to return to make sure
the electricity didn't create any
fires."
She said the fire may have
been started accidently by
homeless people who were
cooking in the woods.
"There were heated pro-
pane tanks that were found
venting," she said. "The


Division of Forestry is inves-
tigating. We cannot say if it is
arson-related."
With heavy fuel (thick
brush), dry conditions and
winds Sunday, the fire spread
quickly, Pearson said.
"We had (the) Air One
(helicopter) in the air, which
dropped 30 loads of water on
the fire," she said.
Twenty departments
assisted.
"No one was displaced,"
Pearson said. "We did have
crews mopping up at 8 a.m.
(Monday)."

Air One passes the test


By PAM JOHNSON
SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER SUN

Having a fire-suppressing
helicopter based at Venice
Municipal Airport probably
saved lives and countless
homes Sunday when a fire
threatened a large area of
South Venice.
"I was working at my com-
puter Sunday when I smelled
smoke and noticed a smoke
cloud," said South Venice resi-
dent Dan Tucci.
That was about the time


Sarasota County Fire Depart-
ment was called to a blaze on
nearly 12 acres of land outside
the city limits, just south of the
Galleria Plaza.
"There was an evacuation
ordered. I loaded up the pos-
sessions I wanted to save and
was ready to go. I was scared
I would lose my home," said
Tucci, who lives near Alligator
Creek.
He walked a half block
down the street and saw
flames. Eventually, the flames
would come as close as 300


feet to his home.
Several firefighters were
nearby, trying to decide the
best way to approach the fire,
he said. Then Tucci saw Air
One, its "snorkel" dangling
from underneath the aircraft.
The Sarasota County Sher-
iff's Office Bell 407 helicopter
was dropping a huge tankload
of water to the ground, near
the flames.
As Tucci watched from the
ground, Deputy Steve Boone

berry Festival (in Plant
City). This is one of the
few small fairs he plays,"
said Bell, who is helping
to organize his 33rd fair.
"And this year we've got
the whole place looking
like Mardi Gras."
He's most excited about
one ride in particular
- the Space Roller,
which has six arms that
all rotate, mounted on


another arm that spins in
different directions.
"It's the largest ride
ever to sit on the Sarasota
fairgrounds. It goes around
360 degrees and it turns
you in eight different direc-
tions, and I don't know
how the body can do this,"
he said, laughing. "I've had
a lot of crazy stuff, and if
you're brave enough, good
luck to you."
Bell said this year's fair


also will feature a sea lion
show and a tiger show that
allows fairgoers to pet tiger
cubs. Other attractions at
the fairgrounds, located
at 3000 Ringling Blvd. (off
Fruitville Road), include
the returning Rosaire's
Racing Pigs, the Galaxy
Girl aerial act, the Cracker
Land Band, crafts, livestock
shows and auctions, a dog
show, a whip-cracking
contest and a plant sale.

County unveils new procurement system


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

Local businesses may have
a fair edge over national firms
now that Sarasota County has
replaced an industry-standard,
Web-based procurement system
with a county-enhanced soft-
ware system.
Some 6,000 past and pres-
ent county vendors have been
invited to use eProcure, the
county's new system for gov-
ernment bid solicitations. Free
registration began Monday; free
training starts Thursday.
"We're going to go out and
promote it," county Procure-
ment Official Mark Thiele said of
the new system, which replaces
the proprietary DemandStar
system. "We are going to start
soliciting the small businesses
through local chambers (of
commerce) and Small Business
Administration offices. We want
to get more and more of the local
people to sign up for eProcure."
County officials determined


they need a system that is more
user friendly than DemandStar.
DemandStar, which the county
began using about 10 years ago,
requires vendors to register and
pay an annual fee, then notifies
vendors anywhere in the world
about upcoming solicitations
and allows them to download
documents. Nonmembers pay a
fee to download documents.
Local businesses that are not
DemandStar members often
do not know about county
solicitations, and the county
wants to interact online with
all vendors, not just Demand-
Star members. EProcure makes
that possible through free mass
emails and other free services
to registered vendors. Now,
instead of DemandStar drawing
vendors from all over, with vary-
ing interests in doing business
with the county, eProcure will
attract vendors with closer ties to
Southwest Florida.
DemandStar, which derives its
revenue from vendors, not gov-
ernment agencies, retains all of


its vendor data. Now vendors will
store that data with eProcure.
"We are building a database
that we have never had rights to
own," said Kate Wood, county
procurement analyst.
Development of the new system
cost the county $31,000 -for
software several years ago, plus
time spent setting it up by the
county's Enterprise Information
Technology Department. Through
the Web-based eProcure, ven-
dors can learn about county bid
solicitations. It's also the place to
find county purchasing policies,
procedures and free forms.
One key problem it solves is
DemandStar's unwillingness to
share county solicitations with its
competitors; eProcure eliminates
that roadblock by centralizing
solicitations on county servers.
"This is going to be a much
more local, user-friendly plat-
form," said Thiele, who added
that it's an inconvenience "every
week" when vendors who refuse
to use DemandStar or say
DemandStar won't provide them


information call the county to
request information on bids.
The new system enables
vendors to submit hard-copy or
electronic bids. Officials believe
allowing electronic bids will
reduce vendor paperwork mis-
takes that often lead to county
attorney rulings as to the eligi-
bility of incomplete bids. With
electronic filing, a vendor cannot
submit a bid without first com-
pleting all of the requirements,
and the software calculates the
numbers in the bid.
The new system also allows
vendors to claim local preference
during their initial registration,
rather than completing that
process every time they submit
a bid. Local bidders receive extra
consideration.
The county's purchasing sys-
tem came under intense scrutiny
last year amid several audits and
investigations after the March
2011 arrest of county employee
Rodney Jones on corruption
charges. Jones was charged with
accepting more than $15,000 in


cruises, hotel stays, gift cards and
other kickbacks from aWelling-
ton-based manhole rehabilitation
company while he was a project
manager. Since Jones' arrest, he
and nine other county employ-
ees, including former county
administrator Jim Ley, have either
resigned, retired or been fired
as a result of various probes. At
least four of the departures were
related to credit-card misuse. One
implicated employee committed
suicide after resigning.
The idea of creating eProcure
predated those problems by a
year or two, but county officials
decided it would be best to roll
it out while the Procurement
Department is implementing
more than 200 recommenda-
tions from the National Institute
for Governmental Purchasing
and other agencies. The county
is still completing those recom-
mendations. Some are long-term
in nature.
The Procurement Department
expects to begin posting vendor
solicitations to eProcure in May.

Some county residents hav

Talman reportedly had been
drinking heavily on Siesta Beach.
Sarasota County deputies inter-
acted with Talman but had no
reason to arrest him prior to the
fatal crash. Chen's family and
friends met with county officials
and presented their research on
county alcohol ordinances and a
petition with 2,000 signatures to
ban alcohol on local beaches.


Sarasota County is one of only
five counties in the state that
allow alcohol on their beaches.
Some 18 counties have bans.
Supporters of the proposed
local ban feel Siesta Beach has
become a destination for people
from counties that bar alcohol.
Friends of Chen offered
several options regarding alcohol
consumption on Sarasota


countywide," former County
Commissioner David Mills said.
"These folks are very interested in
Siesta Beach.We all are, but I think
we have interests countywide."
Colette MacPhail, Chen's

Local governments in
the county are hoping to
upgrade their shared public
safety communications sys-
tem. But the project comes
with a steep price tag.
Sarasota County Fire
Chief Mike Tobias said
last week that it will cost
the county $30 million to
upgrade the aging system,
which provides communi-
cations services to 38 pub-
lic safety and intergovern-
mental support agencies
- including the Sarasota
County Fire Department,
the Sarasota County Sher-
iff's Office, the Venice Fire
Department and North
Port Fire Rescue using
5,000 radios that produce
40,000-plus push-to-talk
messages per day.
The current voice-
data system used by the


541 -40O-b 1


agencies, one of the first of
its kind in the nation, has
been in operation since
1996, and is at the end of
its useful and reliable life
cycle, Tobias told Sarasota
County commissioners.
"It's getting a little bit
long in the tooth," he
said. "This basically is a
computer system that is
15 years old," using slow,
dial-up modem speeds to
transmit data, Tobias said.
Equipment available today
is better and more efficient.
Upgrading would
eliminate current and
near-future radio coverage
"dead spots," Tobias said.
The upgraded system also
would provide seamless
voice/data communica-
tions across adjacent
county boundaries, to
increase efficiency. Sara-
sota County has talked to
its neighbors about mak-
ing this a regional system.

restaurant will walk
down a memory lane of


classic hot dog restau-
rants, featuring the


deep-fried Ripper from
Jersey and the famous
Rutt's Hut. Interior deco-
rations in hot dog colors
- yellow for mustard,
green for relish are
an homage to hot dog
stands and stores across
the nation.
On another wall are
state-themed hot dogs
illustrated on a map of
the U.S. As the Smielow-
itzes continue making
those specialties, they
will be added to the map.
A wall-size menu of
hot dogs will include
sodas, handmade
shakes, salads, combo
meals and the classic ice
cream they are bring-
ing to Venice. Manag-
ing both the shop and
restaurant, they plan to
switch locations daily,
ensuring their busi-
nesses retain a mom-
and-pop feel with fresh
food.
Mad Dogs was cre-
ated two years ago from
an idea they had while
working in New York,
where he was general
manager of EJ's Restau-
rant on the Upper East
Side and she was work-
ing in her grandfather's
restaurant. Her parents


moved to Sarasota
County and she followed
in 1998 for six months,
staying for five years as
a church youth director.
She ended up working at
the Crow's Nest and the
Fishery in Englewood.
Returning to New York,
they married and came
to Florida as the econ-
omy was turning down.
They had discussed
an idea from chef Rocco
DiSpirito, who had
worked hot dog stands,
and decided to give it a
try in Englewood. Spot-
ting the empty unit on
South Tamiami Trail, they
wondered if the equip-
ment they needed would
fit into the 10-foot-by-26-
foot space.
Since opening they
have remodeled a few
times, but the key to suc-
cess is serving everything
fresh so customers know
they are going to get a
good meal.
It matters what you
put in a bun, so they
serve the favorite Little
Italy, the NewYorker, an
authentic Chicago Dog,
the Cincinnati, the Coney
Island, the Chicago
Vienna beef, Thumann's
and Rippers. Despite the


economic downturn,
their business succeeds
because it caters to the
hot dog lover, serving
different sizes deep fried,
steamed or grilled, with a
new variety every month
- for example, their new
Mamma Mia on Mother's
Day.
Discovering their cus-
tomers are big on chili,
they use it on fries and
hot dogs, including the
monster 12-inch buns
with their Cincinnati and
Chicago dogs.
"We are the gourmet
and have been here
two years, with the bulk
of our business being
recommendations by
our own customers," she
said.
They have their own
VIP card offering dis-
counts and have even
named hot dogs for their
customers.
For the Kia dealerships
in Venice and Sarasota
they have done com-
mercial catering every
weekend from December
to February with hot dog
giveaways, and they have
cooked on site for Crest
Cadillac of Venice.

Real estate sales show momentum


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

With the end of the sea-
son approaching, there
seems to be a more
enthusiasm among buy-
ers to grab a property
at a bargain price in the
Venice area. The market
is picking up momen-
tum, according to


statistics in the Febru-
ary Real Estate Outlook
by RE/MAX Alliance
Group.
Short sale and bank-
owned properties in
many cases have been
neglected for two or
three years, requiring
a substantial invest-
ment to bring them
up to living standards.


Combined with sellers
having accepted the
substantial downward
change in property
values over the past five
years, properties are
now priced realistically
in the current market,
the survey shows.
RE/MAX Alliance
Group's report for
February indicates both


sales and prices of prop-
erties are increasing in
this area. The median
price for single-family
homes and condomini-
ums increased 27.3 per-
cent, from $110,000
in February 2011 to
$140,000 this year, and
since January has seen
a further 12.4 percent
increase.


Sales for February
were up 10.2 percent
over 2011, to 151, but
were down 7.4 percent
compared to January. It
took longer to sell those
properties, increasing
from 158 to 177 days this
year.
Pending sales
increased almost
30 percent, from 197 in


2011 to 256 this Feb-
ruary. The available
inventory fell 17.1 per-
cent this year compared
to 2011, reducing the
number of months'
supply by 42 percent,
from 6.8 months last
year to only 3.9 months
this year.

Man faces fines for homes he never owned


By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER

Rick Miron has never
stepped foot inside a
home on Aero or Shu-
mock avenues in North
Port. However, if he
wants to buy a house in
Venice from the couple
who previously owned
two North Port proper-
ties on those streets,
he's required to clear
up a $91,291.38 stale
code-enforcement fine
from 2008 for tall grass,
missing numbers on
the front of one of the
houses and yard debris.
The 60-year-old
retired probation and
parole officer, who is
renting in Venice, said
he's had an extremely
difficult time navigating
the city's new code-
enforcement forgive-
ness "process." After
talking to the city clerk's
office, the city attorney,
the property standards
inspector, the city
manager, the utilities
business manager and
the building director,
Miron said he finally
was told he needed to
go before city commis-
sioners. He did recently.
He quickly learned that
not only did commis-
sioners know nothing
about his case and have
no backup materials,
but he couldn't pres-
ent his case during the
three-minute public-
comment portion of the
meeting.
Miron's brief explana-
tion of his dilemma to
commissioners was a
little confusing. Now
he's prepared to go
before commissioners at
their March 26 meeting
to present his unusual
case.
Although the $180,000
house Miron wants
to buy is in Venice,
he learned he must
clear liens against the
other properties his
sellers owned, even if
they are in North Port.
In Florida, all code-
enforcement liens on
a property carry over
to another if it has the
same owner.
Usually, the seller
must pay off the lien to
clear the property title.
However, in Miron's
case, the couple from
whom he's buying the
house declared bank-
ruptcy in 2007, and
they abandoned the
two North Port General
Development homes.
Code enforcement fines
accumulated from 2008
to 2011. The couple has
been instructed not to
speak to creditors.
"The homes have not
been taken over by the
bank yet because of
the bankruptcy and the
code-violation fines are
so high," said Miron's
real estate agent, Jack
Gang. "Because these
properties are compli-
cated, the bank hasn't
touched them, nor
are they in a rush to.
The Shumock house is
appraised at $28,400,

Real Results.


HIRED'


and the house on Aero
is $23,300. The fines for
these houses are way
more than the houses
are worth. Why wouldn't
the bank let these
houses sit vacant?"
Miron said he first
was told the fines
totaled $60,405.38,
which included $312 in
city attorney fees. Miron
said he was offered a
settlement of $5,000
by the city attorney to
release the liens. But
after arriving at City
Hall in September to
pay the lesser amount,
he was told the deal was
off.
"They wouldn't take
my check," he said,
adding he was given a
letter from city attorney
Rob Robinson explain-
ing he wasn't allowed
to make me an offer
because there's a new
Code Enforcement
forgiveness program as
long as the violations
were fixed, according to
Robinson's letter. (North
Port city commission-
ers have allowed staff
to work out forgiveness
agreements of up to
75 percent off of code
enforcement violations.
If the violator disagrees
with the settlement
offer, he is encouraged
to go before city com-
missioners to discuss
the issue.)
Miron left City Hall
and went to the two
homes. At the Aero
home, there were no
missing house num-
bers. They were visible
from the left side of the
home. The home had
acquired a $30,205.24
fine for not having
them. There was no
debris in the front yard.
"I went to Home
Depot and found the
numbers cost 47 cents
each for a total of about
$2," he said. "At the sec-
ond (Shumock) home, it
took a friend and myself
less than a half-hour
to clean it up, yet it
accrued $30,200.14 in
fines. That included a
fee of $150 to mow the
grass once a year."
Miron missed the
closing on the Venice
home he wants and had
to put in a new, higher
bid.
When Miron returned
to North Port City Hall
in February, he was
prepared to discuss
the city's $15,962.34
settlement offer, which
is 75 percent off the
$60,405.38 fine. How-
ever the payout sheet
given to him by the City
Clerk's office now said
the fine was $91,291.38.

Miron couldn't figure
out how the fine esca-
lated $30,886 from Sep-
tember to February. He
also was told he owed
an additional $2,397.79
in utility (water bill) fees
since 2008.
"My attorney fought
with the city over the
water-usage fee," Miron
said. "I called the city
manager about the
$30,886 jump in the
fine. He agreed a mis-
take had been made."
Miron said his attor-
ney straightened out
the water bill mishap,
and he doesn't have
to pay it because the
houses were never in
his name. Now Miron
just wants to pay the
$1,100, which is the
real cost to the city for
mowing the Shumock
property for three
years, or would like the
fines waived.
City commissioners
will have the ultimate
decision on what can be
done for Miron.
"I don't know if the
taxpayers want to sub-
sidize this property,"
City Commissioner Jim
Blucher said. "There
are rules in place, and
the owners broke them.
Maybe we are not talk-
ing to the right person
over these fines. I'd like
to see the owners pay
up. The neighbors have
suffered."
Commissioner Mike
Treubert said he will
listen to Miron's con-
cerns, but is unsure
whether he shouldn't
"pay something."

No healing vibes at CONA meeting


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

The public's distrust of
Sarasota County government,
which grew last year amid
multiple investigations of the
county's procurement practices
and procedures, was on then-
interim county administrator
Terry Lewis' mind when he
hired an ethics and compliance
officer. It also played a role in
county commissioners' deci-
sion to name Randall Reid the
new county administrator.
But the county's difficulty
regaining that trust at least
with some members of a group
of residents was illustrated
last week when Steve Uebe-
lacker, the man Lewis hired to


make sure county employees
do their jobs ethically, spoke
during the monthly meeting of
the Council of Neighborhood
Associations in Sarasota.
No one has come forward
with an audio or video record-
ing of the meeting, but wit-
nesses dispute how and why
it devolved. In an email to
Uebelacker, Lourdes Ramirez,
president of CONA, said Uebe-
lacker took offense to questions
and complaints about what
was revealed last year "from
very involved, knowledgeable
community stakeholders."
"So it was very confusing to
us when you became so upset
upon hearing some of the civic-
minded public's questions,
comments and concerns about


your presentation," she wrote.
Uebelacker, a former Florida
Department of Law Enforce-
ment special agent, said he did
not stop his presentation early,
as reported elsewhere. He
scheduled a 15-minute presen-
tation and spoke for more than
an hour, answering all of the
questions asked, but a handful
of the 45 or so attendees did
not like what they heard.
Reid succeeded Jim Ley, who
served as county administrator
for 14 years before parting ways
with commissioners last May
amid the procurement inves-
tigations. At least 10 county
employees have lost their
jobs since the March arrest
of county employee Rodney
Jones in a multijurisdictional,


criminal corruption probe of
county purchasing practices.
County Commissioner Joe
Barbetta, who attended the
CONA meeting, defended
Uebelacker's conduct.
"It was clearly a rude, dis-
respectful display by many
people (in the audience) and
was allowed to continue by the
CONA leadership," Barbetta
said. "Mr. Uebelacker was
extremely professional, cordial
and did his best to respond to
questions, but the attacks kept
coming. Of course he couldn't
fully finish it because of the
continued heckling and out-
bursts from various members
of the group."
Uebelacker, who has made
a number of presentations to


community groups, said he
doesn't want to publicly dispute
other people's interpretations of
what happened in the meeting.
Instead, he wants to talk
about how his role is to prevent
future ethical lapses by county
employees, not investigate
allegations from last year.
It's ethics training, he said, of
more than 1,300 employees, so
far. It's giving the employees the
avenue to call him and report
allegations of misconduct,
being trusted by employees so
they will report policy or ethics
violations, fixing policies so
they will be effective and doing
compliance checks to ensure
that employees are performing
their jobs ethically.

Crime slightly up in Sarasota County


By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER

Crime in Sarasota
County edged up almost
5.4 percent overall in
2011, compared with
2010, according to an
annual report released
Friday by the Sheriff's
Office.
According to data
released by the SCSO,
murders more than
doubled, from three in
2010 to seven in 2011.
Aggravated assaults
increased almost 8 per-
cent, from 415 to 448;
simple assaults rose
7.8 percent, from 1,785
to 1,925. Robberies also
rose 18.4 percent,
from 141 to 167.
Overall, violent
crimes increased almost


10 percent, from 625
to 687, and nonviolent
crimes went up 2.6 per-
cent, from 7,812 to 8,015.
Additionally, fraud
cases rose 33 percent,
from 503 in 2010 to 669
in 2011. The number of
DUI arrests also rose
nearly 6 percent last year.
However, the report
states, since Sheriff Tom
Knight took office, overall
crime is down 6 percent,
when compared with
2008.
"We are not going to
misreport numbers,"
Knight said. "If there's a
robbery, we are not going
to skew it by calling it a
theft. We aren't going to
hide our numbers."
Knight said residents
question him about
instances of kidnapping


and fraud, especially
when the numbers seem
on the rise.
"Our kidnapping
crimes are usually
related to domestic
issues," Knight said.
"Say a couple is divorced
and the ex-wife has a
restraining order against
her ex and he refuses to
return their child after
visitation. It meets the
Florida Statute definition
for kidnapping.
"We have not had a
kidnapping case similar
to Denise Amber Lee
(who was taken in 2008
from her North Port
home at gunpoint and
later raped and mur-
dered), or a demand
for ransom or extortion
crime here in years. Most
kidnapping instances are


generally between people
who know each other."
As far as fraud cases,
Knight said there aren't
any "Bernie Madoff-type
Ponzi schemes arrests in
Sarasota County."
"We don't have Ponzi
schemes or the Mafia
doing fraudulent actions
here," he said. "Our cases
are usually something
like someone in a family
stealing a checkbook
from a relative and writ-
ing bad checks or taking
a credit card and using it
without permission."
Knight said he
expected some of the
burglary, larceny, fraud
and battery crime statis-
tics to increase because
of the recent changes in
cracking down on pain-
management clinics and


Budget has $5 million for rowing facility


By SARA KENNEDY
BRADENTON HERALD

The $70 billion state
budget includes a $5 mil-
lion appropriation for a
rowing and aquatic facil-
ity at Sarasota's Nathan
Benderson Park.
Last year, the Florida
Legislature OK'd a similar
allocation, only to have it


struck down by the veto
pen of Gov. Rick Scott.
Local backers said
they're hopeful.
"I'm very optimistic
this year," said Mary
Dougherty-Slapp, execu-
tive director of Gulf Coast
Builders Exchange.
There have been
conversations with the
governor and his staff,


she said. The project has
won the support of the
Florida Department of
Economic Opportunity;
the Florida Sports Foun-
dation, the state's sports
promotion and develop-
ment organization; and
its tourism arm, Visit
Florida, she said.
"His own agencies
are in support of this


project," she noted.
The money would be
spent on rowing facility
improvements, such as
regatta timing systems
and a starting tower at
the park, located near
Interstate 75 and Uni-
versity Parkway, said
Paul Blackketter, project
manager for Benderson
Development Corp.

Knight credits Sarasota
County commissioners for
creating an ordinance that
forces doctors to check a
statewide registry for each


patient before writing a
prescription such as oxy-
codone. The ordinance
also allows for so-called
"pill mills" to be shut
down if a doctor fails to
follow the new regulations.

OUR VIEW



Finally, a safer, smoother River Road


Careful, longtime readers of this
newspaper are aware of the
many column inches we've
devoted to River Road over the years.
It goes waaaaay back. For the past
five years alone, we can flip through
the files to find stories about a task
force established to address widen-
ing the two-lane road that runs from
Englewood to Interstate 75. In early
2008, there was a summit of officials
from the city of North Port, Sarasota
and Charlotte counties to discuss
four-laning River Road the hur-
ricane evacuation route also known
as the Englewood Instate Connec-
tor. The cost of the whole shebang?
$145 million. A staggering number.
Congressman Vern Buchanan
chimed in back then as a member of
the House committee considering
the five-year federal Transportation
Bill, but he was careful not make any
promises. Good thing. Need we men-
tion the possibility of federal TIGER


grant funding a few years back? Long
forgotten.
When Sarasota County split the
project into smaller, digestible
chunks, the four-laning of South
River Road from U.S. 41 to Pine Street
was at the bottom of the priority list,
which meant was it was a very distant
dream.
It also meant the current road
would continue to deteriorate in the
short term while everyone focused on
the long term.
And South River Road was already
a mess. The travel lanes were grooved
and the surface had eroded to the
point that driving was something of a
nightmare in the rain and after dark.
Locals knew this, but county
officials didn't seem to get it. When
asked, they noted resurfacing was
years off on the project list.
That changed last year. Hear-
ing complaints, Sarasota County
Commissioner Christine Robinson,


who drives River Road regularly,
picked up the ball and asked Interim
County Administrator Terry Lewis,
who lives in South County, to take
a drive and check it out for himself.
He did, and he agreed the road was
awful.
Lewis, in turn, asked Public Works
Director Jim Harriott to take a spin.
He did, and he also agreed the road
was a lot worse than the engineers
had realized. The wheels started spin-
ning, so to speak.
Last week, Harriott told county
commissioners that staff had fig-
ured out a way to transfer money
from other projects that had come in
under budget and fund the $1.5 mil-
lion resurfacing as soon as possible.
Thankfully, the commission agreed.
Plans call for the 5.6 miles of road to
be milled and resurfaced, hopefully
beginning before the year is out.
Outside our area, this may seem
like a relatively small thing. But for


people who have to use this road
daily it's not. In its current state,
River Road is difficult to navigate and
clearly dangerous.
Some day, eventually, the entire
interstate connector will be built.
The U.S. 41-River Road intersection
reconstruction finally may begin
soon. Funding for the $9 million proj-
ect is in hand; the project is being put
out to bid.
Meanwhile, hats off to those who
finally managed to get the resurfac-
ing moving, to Lewis, Harriott and
the financial people who found the
residual money and directed it here,
where it was badly needed. Most
important, though, big thanks to
Robinson, who politely and firmly
suggested the proper officials take
notice of a problem and address it.
She lit the fuse. Her persistence
got results. The people who drive
River Road regularly should be very
thankful.


It takes a Village


My continuing effort to visit
every community nonprofit
organization led me to a won-
derful community located on
the island. It is none other than
Village On The Isle.
Village On The Isle is a
nonprofit retirement commu-
nity and is the only licensed
continuing-care retirement
community in Venice. This
facility has a healthy mixture
of independent living, assisted
living and around-the-clock
care gear toward making life
for our seniors as stress-free
and enjoyable as possible.
Connie Ruberg, our medical
advertising rep, and I started
our day by meeting up with
Tom Kelly, the CEO, and Kathy
Keenan, associate director of
sales. Right off the bat their
love for this community was
apparent as these two fine
people began to give us our
tour and the history of Village
On The Isle.
Village On The Aisle was
built in 1982 and is celebrat-
ing 30 years of operation this
year. During those 30 years
there has been a monumental
transformation, both exter-
nally and internally. Externally,
you can just see the pride and
hard work that has gone into
this project; internally, the
facility is simply beautiful and
modern.
And boy, do I mean modern.
The entire facility is equipped
withWi-Fi, and if you have
issues with your phone, the
IT guy there is a genius, as
he fixed mine while we were
there. Thank you.
Additionally, the medication
is distributed, guarded and
ordered electronically. This
program is amazing, and I was
captivated as each location
demonstrated how this process
worked. These systems end
waste and mistakes and save
lives. The equipment is that
good.
More impressive were the
people who monitor these


systems routinely. While they
were enthusiastic in their
delivery of the presentation,
their pride in having such a
system was displayed with how
effectively they answered my
questions. In this facility not
only do they have advanced
technology, they have advanced
people administering both the
system and the medical neces-
sities. I was quite floored by the
entire process and still want to
go back and learn more.
As we toured, it was pointed
out that with more than 200
apartments, roughly 100
assisted-living quarters and a
60-bed around-the-clock nurs-
ing home, good people serving
the needs of the community
are an absolute must. Tom has
made this facility his passion
and has hired and led the staff
to have the same passion he
and Kathy demonstrate. The
feeling at every turn and with
every employee we met was
one of sincerity.
I can't describe how moti-
vated and intense these folks
were about getting their jobs
done correctly. I was most
impressed with the efforts of
the staff at this facility and
came away assured that all
residents can rest easy know-
ing they are in good hands.
As we maneuvered through
this incredible community, the
people who lived there would
never hesitate to endorse the
program, the facility and both
Tom and Kathy. It seemed
as if Tom knew everyone by
name. When he announced
it was lunch time, I could not
believe the time had flown by
so quickly.
My grandfather always said
you could tell the spirit of a
place simply by a meal. In
this case the spirit is alive and
well at Village On The Isle, as
we enjoyed a tasty meal with
impeccable service, great
company and the kitchen
and service staff demonstrat-
ing the same commitment to
excellence as the medical staff.
Connie and I left there walking
on clouds.
Tom and staff, you do a tre-
mendous service for those who
stay in your facility, and I was
most impressed.
Thank you to the entire team
at Village On The Isle you
are incredible.

AJ T






WHAT SIGNS DO YOU SEE THAT THE ECONOMY IS IMPROVING? CALL US AT 941-207-1111.


Blown. The "Free" item in
Let'em Have It violates your
requirement that there are
no personal attacks allowed,
because that is most definitely
a personal attack. Not only
that, it should have noth-
ing to do with the issue of
free yoga on Venice Beach.
That's a private matter and it
has personal attacked Elin's
integrity and honesty. On top
of that, the county should not
be getting a share of what Elin
is getting as gifts from her stu-
dents because that free beach
is not owned by the county.
It is owned by us as taxpay-
ers and we've already paid
for it with our tax dollars. So
the county should definitely
not be getting any kind of
share. The caller is mistaken.
There are never that many
people every single day that
pay. Some do, some don't. It is
based on whatever the person
feels like gifting. The caller
is completely jealous of the
entire situation. Who knows
- she might be another yoga
instructor in town. But that
violated your requirement of
a personal attack. You blew it
when you published that.
Positive. After going to
yoga for two years, I can tell
you Elin is extremely honest,
hard-working and very caring.
To insinuate that she may not
be reporting her earnings is
extremely unfair and not true.
She maintains a positive atti-
tude every day and only cares
about what is best for us. We
all see this as a huge commu-
nity service that has brought
many people to Venice. How
can someone be critical of
something that does so much
good every day? We are all so
much healthier because of
Elin.
Weak. Turn on network
television to watch the NBA
All-Star game and all you get
is a picture that looks like a
scrambled box of a puzzle.


Let 'em


Have It
The reason? There's too many
people watching this program
so your signal is going to be
unavailable for tonight. So I
say to the rest of these people,
please go to a different chan-
nel so I can see my TV. Is that
the worst excuse ever? I think
so.
Unquestioned. Thanks to
Council Member Bob Daniels
for removing costly perks from
Finance Director Jeff Snyder.
Too bad Snyder did not argue
against these changes for him-
self. Until six years ago, the
finance director's office was
an elected office. One might
think that he would then be
a watchdog for his voters
alerting them to any spend-
ing nonsense by the city. For
10 years, I've watched him sit
in his lofty booth during the
many city council meetings
I attended. He never ques-
tioned comments by the city
manager or financial deci-
sions affecting the public. He
rarely, if ever, wrote a column
in the Gondolier Sun express-
ing his professional thoughts
to the people who voted for
him. When the opportunity


came for voters six years ago
to eliminate his charter office
status and reassign him to
serving under the city man-
ager, he never questioned it.
Anyway, the voters were glad
to get rid of his charter officer
status.
Editor's Note: The finance
director has never been an
elective position.
In touch. Sheriff Tom
Knight has the right to spend
tax dollars without any
approval other than his own.
As reported by the Gondolier
Sun, Sheriff Knight and his
animal control department
closed down an animal rescue
organization in Venice. It
confiscated 45 dogs, three of
which were ill, two of which
died. Their reasoning? They
could take better care, I sup-
pose. They wound up killing
two of the animals, but more
important, they spent an
unbelievable amount of tax
dollars attempting to resolve
this issue in their favor. I
watched a court proceeding
that lasted all day. It included
the judge, two clerks, four
detectives, two prosecuting
attorneys, a fire marshal and
a paid local veterinarian's
testimony. When I tried to find
out what the actual dollars
and times was spent on this
issue, you find yourself get-
ting absolutely nothing and
getting nowhere. The only
one that knows who spent
what is Sheriff Knight. County
commissioners told me that
they can't do anything about
it because he's an elected
official. This person runs his
own agenda on his own time
frame and has total control
on whatever money he feels
like spending, right or wrong.
The money spent on this issue
of animals could have been
spent on crimes and knock-
ing down the drug trade. He
needs to be more in touch
with reality and spending.

I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Who is being coerced?
Editor:
The bishop of the Dio-
cese of Venice recently
jumped on the hysteria
train with the rest of the
ultra-right-wing activ-
ists hoping to capitalize
on the political frenzy
surrounding the alleged
"attack on religious
freedom" engendered by
the HHS contraception
mandate.
The bishop claims that
the spiritual underpin-
nings of the Catholic
Church are vulnerable
because the mandate
forces them to provide
"services" it finds mor-

contrary to the faith's
teachings.

more objective light.
The bishops believe
that it is wrong to
"coerce" or "constrain
in choice or action" the
church's right to limit the
health services avail-
able to its employees but
they fail to recognize the
hypocrisy in denying the
same freedom to those
employees who don't
share their views. So, in
effect, it is acceptable to
"constrain" or "coerce"
their own employees
(just the females, of
course) by denying them
basic health care that all
other employers must
provide. And while thus
punishing these female
employees, regardless of
their personal beliefs and
choices, they perpetuate
the second-class status
of women. How very
chauvinistic of them.

is curious. If the govern-
ment demands equal
treatment of women in
this regard, Catholics will
lose their motivation to
be charitable?
It appears to me that
the Catholic Church is its
own worst enemy when
it makes proclamations
claiming to be in the
public good when, in fact,
they only serve to per-
petuate the very things
that the church should be
fighting against (e.g.: pov-
erty, homelessness, dis-

Y is grateful for support
Editor:
I am overwhelmed by
the supportVenice resi-
dents have shown their
YMCA these past few
months.
The Y's 25th anni-
versary Black Tie event
(held Feb. 2) generated a
record amount of money
for Y scholarships. These
scholarships ensure
no one is turned away
from our Y because of
an inability to pay the
regular membership,
program or child-care
rates. If you or someone
you know wants to be


a member of the Y, but
didn't think it was in the
budget, please come see
us so we can find a way
to involve you at the Y.
I also need to recog-
nize the commitment of
Gulf Coast Community
Foundation to the Venice
YMCA. At the Black Tie
event it pledged $250,000
to the complete renova-


tion of our gymnasium,
a project that includes
new equipment for our
gymnastics program.
This comes just after the
foundation provided a
matching gift of $10,000
to our scholarship fund in
January. Gulf Coast Com-
munity Foundation is a
true partner of the YMCA.

BASEBALL CLASS 7A-DISTRICT 11




Venice doubles up Sarasota, 6-3


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

Baseball is a team sport and
sacrificing is key.
Venice used four sacrifices
including three, which led to
runs as the Indians scored a 6-3
victory over Sarasota on Tuesday
in a Class 7A-District 11 game at
Venice High.
The win gives the Indians a
10-4 record overall but more
importantly a 4-2 district record.
Sarasota falls to 7-5 overall and
3-3 in the district.
"I think we learned something
tonight," said Venice coach Craig
Faulkner. "One of our goals is we
are going to 'tribe-up'. In other
words, we are pulling together
as a team. We have some outside
forces that we are pushing back.
We learned that putting the ball
on the ground is the key to win-
ning. Hitting the ball in the air
is outs. We had 13 or 14 ground
ball outs tonight compared to
three or four usually. We really
focused on that tonight and it
paid big dividends for us."
Venice opened scoring in the
bottom of the first inning thanks
to a sacrifice bunt and sacrifice
fly.
Senior Grant Banko lined a
single over the second baseman
and Rex Ingerick walked. Nick
Longhi's sacrifice bunt moved
Banko to third base and Ingerick
to second base. Brandon Elmy
followed with a sacrifice fly to
center field to score Banko.
Venice has scored a first-
inning run in five of its last six
games all wins.
The Indians went ahead 4-0
with three runs in the third
inning. Banko led off with a

victory.

single into right field. Ingerick
bounced a single up the middle
moving Banko to second base.
Longhi followed by hitting a high
chopper to third baseman Tyler
Leonard, whose throw pulled
the first baseman off the base
for an error to load the bases.
Pinch-runner Chris Rolfes was
forced out at second base on a
hit to shortstop by Elmy to score
Banko. Ingerick came home
as the second baseman's relay
throw to first for the attempted
double play sailed over the first
baseman's head. Michael Knott
ripped a double over the right
fielder's head to score Elmy from
second base.
"It looked pretty big," Knott
said about the pitch he hit for a
double. "Hoping it was off the
wall."
Knott kept Sarasota in check

most complete games of
the season in a 3-0 shut-
out of Lemon Bay in the
afternoon.
In the tournament,
Venice finished with a
2-2 record for seventh
place out of 11 teams.
One of the losses was to
Palm Harbor University
Friday night in pool play.
The Hurricanes ended up
capturing the champion-
ship with a 2-1 victory
over Bellaire, Texas.
"This tournament is
the turnaround," said
Venice coach Fred Sos-
noski. "We go 2-2 in the
tournament. One team
we lost to today is about
to play for the consola-
tion championship and
the other team we hung
with and gave three runs
in first inning yesterday
won the whole thing."
Against Lemon Bay,
Sosnoski changed his
team's positions and
lineup around.
Players in new posi-
tions were Kelly Ott
(shortstop), Liz Walters
(center field), Rachel
Lightner (first base) and
Syd Lakins (left field).
The Lady Indians, who
have allowed a lot of runs
in the first inning this
season, turned the tables


on Lemon Bay.
Senior Amber Yonker
led off with a double over
third base off Lemon Bay
pitcher Brooke Carvey.
Lakins followed with a
bloop over Carvey's head
for an infield single. A
double steal by Yonker
and Lakins moved the
runners to second and
third base. A walk to
Carly Rosa loaded the
bases.
Chelsey LaFountain
ripped a two-run single
into the right-center field
gap to score Yonker and
Lakins. Rosa advanced
to third and LaFountain
to second on the throw
home. A bunt to third
forced a throw to first
base. After the throw to
first, Rosa raced home
and scored with a head-
first slide under the
catcher's tag for Venice's
third run.
"It was incredible,"
Sosnoski said about the
win. "I just told them, if
they had different uni-
forms on I would think it
was a different team than
this morning (a 2-1 loss
to Archbishop McCar-
thy). They played great
defense. We had timely
hitting. Everybody was
hitting the ball hard.


Venice shortstop Rachel
Lightner throws the ball to
first base for an out against
Archbishop McCarthy in the
second inning of the Sara-
sota Slam Saturday morning
at Miss Sarasota Softball
Complex in Sarasota.

"Lemon Bay is one
heck of a team. Great
win for this team. Exactly
what we needed to do.
I'm happy for them
because they have some-
thing to grow on going
into next week (games
against Sarasota and
Braden River). Hope-
fully, we can carry that
momentum forward."
Venice got out of jams
in the second, fourth,
fifth and seventh innings
thanks to solid defense.

Medicaid bill could cost millions GATINAFFECTING
SARASOTA COU NTY


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

Among the issues lawmakers
dealt with during the recent
regular legislative session, the
one regarding Medicaid billing
causes county officials the
most heartburn.
Rather than bill the coun-
ties for unpaid, disputed
Medicaid claims, the bill if
signed into law by Gov. Rick
Scott allows the state to
withhold counties' portions
of the half-cent sales tax (for
past claims) and revenue shar-
ing (for future claims) in the
amount they owe each month.
It can be done without giving
counties the opportunity to
review those bills to determine
whether they should be paid.
At issue is whether the
patients actually are residents
of the county being billed by
the state. The Florida Asso-
ciation of Counties says some
bills have been calculated
incorrectly; at times coun-
ties have been billed multiple
times for the same patient. In
recent years, Sarasota County
has found 19 to 34 percent of
billings to be inaccurate.
The bill would require coun-
ties to pay 85 percent of unpaid
Medicaid claims dating back


to 2001, or 100 percent if they
choose to dispute the claims
in an administrative hearing
and lose. It could cost Sarasota
County up to $6.1 million over
the next five years. The toll on
Charlotte County would be
about $1.1 million.
Sarasota County Commis-
sion Chair Christine Robinson
called the bill an "unfair" effort
to resolve Medicaid billing.
Marsha Hosack, the county's
governmental relations
manager, called it "costly and
unfair."
"Our citizens will be ... using
their tax dollars to pay invalid
bills that we believe we should
not be paying," Robinson said
in a recent meeting. "So we are
going to be paying $6 million
worth of bad bills because the
Legislature told us we have to."
"We won some battles
(during the session), but we
probably lost the war, because
of the Medicaid billing issue,"
Hosack told commissioners.
"As a result of a big effort by
(the FAC) and counties, there
was some hope that the votes
were there to kill the bill,"
Hosack said in an email.
But the final vote was 23-17
in the Senate, late on the ses-
sion's last day. The House had
passed the bill earlier, 73-36,


on a party-line vote.
One lawmaker, Hosack said,
claimed passage of a balanced
state budget (a constitutional
requirement) was contingent
on the passage of the Medic-
aid bill. Hosack said state Sen.
Mike Bennett, R-Bradenton,
took the lead in speaking
"forcefully" against the bill.
The bill also was opposed
by Rep. Darryl Rouson, D-St.
Petersburg, and Rep. Ray Pilon,
R-Sarasota, but Sen. Nancy
Detert, R-Venice, voted for it
because of other provisions it
contained.
"Our senators split," County
Commissioner Joe Barbetta
said. "How can our senator
(Detert) agree to that?"
"No one wants to vote
against their own county, but
my choice was to either sup-
port my county or put more
money into health care," Detert
said. "I voted for health care."
"When you set up a process
where there are no checks
and balances, no self-inherent
governance of the accountabil-
ity of the billing process," said
Commissioner Jon Thaxton, "in
the future you can expect that
billing process to become more
willy-nilly than it is today."

The recently completed regular legisla-
tive session in Tallahassee did not bode
"completely well"for Sarasota County,
Administrator Randall Reid said.

Bills that passed:
Budget it includes $5 million
for the Nathan Benderson Park rowing
facility in Sarasota, and $1 million for the
Loveland Center in South Venice.
Secondary metals lawmakers
passed a bill that does not pre-empt a
provision in the county's ordinance that
requires secondary metals recyclers to
comply with the federal Clean Air Act.
Early learning coalitions the bill
passed with revisions allowing the Early
Learning Coalition of Sarasota County to
continue to operate without merging with
a neighboring coalition.
"It's one of the smaller ones," Marsha
Hosack, the county's governmental rela-
tions manager said of the Sarasota County
ELC. "It's also very efficient, so now that
law (is) based on efficiency" rather than
on the number of children served.
Archaeological program the
county was successful in modifying a bill
that would have inadvertently pre-
empted an ordinance written to protect
archaeological finds in Sarasota County.
Tangible personal property tax a
bill passed placing a constitutional
amendment on the November 2012
ballot to increase the TPP tax exemption
to $50,000. This would have an annual
impact of $70,000 on the county General
Fund. Anyone who owns rental property


WEDNESDAY, MARCH 21, 2012

or operates a business is required to pay
the TPP tax. Currently, owners of property
valued at $25,000 or less are granted
exemptions.
Communications Services Tax -
legislation passed changing definitions
of taxable services in a manner expected
to cost the county $434,000 per year,
and also creating a workgroup to make
recommendations on a "fair and updated
tax structure," Hosack wrote.
Workforce boards legislation
was passed that allows Gov. Rick Scott to
remove the chair and executive director of
the boards for cause.
Numerous other bills passed, including
one revising the development of regional
impact process. Others streamline
permitting functions, reorganize the state
Department of Health and repeal the
septic tank inspection program.

Bills that did not pass:
Legislation for what one county
official called a "super" homestead
exemption.
Bills regarding the repeal of the local
business tax, to pre-empt local fertilizer
ordinances and limit the county's pretrial
release program.
An amendment that would have pre-
empted the county's pain-management
ordinance.
Legislation to allow collection of taxes
on the retail cost of online travel sales,
and to impose an Internet sales tax.
The proposed constitutional
amendment to limit the terms of county
commissioners.

was flying Air One. Sitting
next to Boone was Sara-
sota County Fire Assistant
Chief John Elwood.
About a half-hour
earlier, Boone had been
at his dining room table
writing a term paper
for a college course he
is taking. Sunday is the
one day of the week that
one of the four pilots
who fly the aircraft is not
on duty atVNC, where
Air One is based. When
the call came in, around
3:15 p.m., Boone dropped
what he was doing to
arrive at the airport
around 3:30 p.m.
Because Deputy Ray
Vleck, a tactical flight
officer, had done the
preflight inspection in
preparation for the heli-
copter's departure, Boone
and Elwood were able
to climb aboard as soon
as they arrived. Three
minutes later they were
hovering above the fire.
They circled the area
as Elwood evaluated the
scene and the direction
the fire was heading. He
radioed the information
to the incident com-
mander on the ground.
The fire was moving
north, toward Alligator
Creek and the homes on


its banks.
That observation did
not escape Tucci.
"There are so many
Australian pines along
this side of the creek. If
the fire had jumped the
creek ..." Tucci trailed off,
recognizing Australian
pines are quick tinder
for a spreading wild-
fire, especially during a
drought such as the area
is currently experiencing.
By this time, firefight-
ers from four other area
departments, including
Venice, were attacking
the fire from all sides and


trying to protect nearby
structures. Venice police
helped sheriff's depu-
ties evacuate 20 homes
that would be in the path
if the fire could not be
controlled.
Meanwhile, Boone
skillfully maneuvered
the Bell to a pond on a
nearby golf course where
he lowered its 9-foot hose
into the water. The pump
on the end of the hose
can fill the 265-gallon
tank in about 44 seconds.
Boone flew back to the
area near Alligator Creek
to help establish a fire

George Coronas Jr. and Miles Ashton perform as the Risley
Duo in Cirque Italia's "Aquatic," which debuts its U.S. run
Friday Venice. The show continues through April 1.

Cirque Italia's new show,"Aquatic,"earned its name from the more than 30,000 gallons of water that is part of the show, which features jet skiers as well as traditional circus
acts in an extravaganza its producer refers to as"Soleil meets SeaWorld."


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

The arrival of the
circus in Venice back in
1960 put the town on the
map.
Can lightning strike
twice in the same place?
Members of the not-
for-profit Venice Circus
Arts Foundation hope
Cirque Italia's new show,
"Aquatic," may finally
generate the dollars and
interest needed to save
the city's old arena and
quiet the naysayers who
doubt the ability of the
group just as they doubt
the value of the 60-year-
old building.
"We sold $20,000 worth
of tickets before the first
ad was placed," founda-
tion spokesman Orlando
Bevington said March 6.
Cirque Italia's new blue-
and-white tent arrived
March 2 from Naples,
Italy. Set-up began
March 6 and rehearsals
a few days later for the
show that has been com-
pared to "L'Eau," Cirque
du Soleil's water show in
Las Vegas.
Tickets for that show
run as high as $225
per person. Tickets for
"Aquatic," which features
hand balancers as well as
performers on jet skis in
its watery wonderland,
range from $10 to $35.
Created for "children of
all ages," the new circus
story concerns a group of
six girl penguins and one
boy penguin. Prince, the
boy penguin, loves Sherry,
one of the girl penguins,
but when the ice floe on
which they dwell breaks
apart he is cast adrift. He
wonders if he will ever
see her again. His adven-
tures on the high seas and
meetings with all manner
of sea creatures in the
watery waterland beyond
his home are the basis of
the storyline.
Circus owner Manuel
Rebecchi said some
30,000 gallons of recircu-
lating water will be used

in the show, which also
features towers of water.
In a deal between the
foundation and the new
circus, one quarter of
ticket sales will go toward
saving the old arena.
"This makes me
happy," Rebecchi said. "I
love this area."
The international
entrepreneur has traveled
the globe and acquired
real estate in several
states and countries but
chose this area as his
home. He said he looks
forward to becoming a
U.S. citizen in October.
The consummate circus
fan also is building his
own miniature circus,
which he calls "Cirque
Orfei." The name is that
of a famous Italian circus.
Saving the arena
has a dual purpose


- preserving a historic
site while also enriching
what has become known
as the Cultural Coast of
Florida, with the largest
performing arts venue
between Tampa and
Estero.
"Aquatic" opens Friday
evening and continues its
Venice run with perfor-
mances Thursday through
Sunday until April 1. The
tent seats 1,244 people
and there will be as many
as 14 performances. The
circus could play to more
than 17,000 people and
yield a generous donation
to the Venice Circus Arts
Foundation.
This would be the first
significant amount raised
by the foundation trying
to save the arena. The
group has struggled for
nearly two years to raise


any significant funds
toward its goal of $10 mil-
lion. That is the amount
estimated to restore the
long-neglected building
that once contributed so
much to the area.

aerialist Tito Gaona, who
starred in the Ringling
Bros. and Barnum &
Bailey Circus for thou-
sands of performances,
the not-for-profit Venice
Circus Arts Foundation
hopes to make the arena
profitable once again.

Arena history
"When John Ringling
North built that 4,500-
seat arena, the city's
population was just
2,000," Gaona said. "The
arena was filled for every
performance."


The performances
were the preview shows
for The Greatest Show
on Earth. The circus
wintered and rehearsed
in Venice before heading
out for its annual tour.
Several performances
were given annually.
By 1968, when Irvin
Feld purchased the
circus, a second troupe
was added to back up
his then-new hire, famed
animal trainer Gunther
Gebel-Williams. Even
more people swarmed to
Venice to see the shows.
Gaona is convinced they
will do it again if the
arena is saved.
With 4,500 seats, the
building could also host
rock concerts, ice shows,
circuses and, because
of its unique seating
mechanism, trade shows.


The Up With People tour
filled the arena for many
years.
Still operable after all
these years, the seating
system allows all the
seats to be raised up
above a 68,000-square-
foot floor suitable for
trade shows or conven-
tions. Designed by the
Ringling show's train
master, the late Char-
lie Smith, the system
required X-frame wall
construction to support
its weight. That made
the building stronger
than any building in the
county, Smith said sev-
eral years ago during an
interview for the Venice
Gondolier Sun.
Gaona's foundation
has received a variety
of inquiries about the
building because of its
convertible capabilities.
"Marc Provencal, the
site locator for Cirque
du Soleil, is leading an
international search for a
winter quarters," Beving-
ton said. "We have talked
to him twice."
Bevington said the
foundation also has had
inquiries from Clarence
Walker at Universal Circus
and from Music Circus
in Boston. Music Circus
is not a circus but books
national tours of major
headliners into large are-
nas throughout the United
States, Bevington said.
"We also have been
talking to a group con-
nected with an interna-
tional dog show," he said.
"The possibilities are
unlimited."

Down but not out
Four times in the his-
tory of Venice there have
been times when people
were ready to count the
city out.
The first was in 1929.
The population was down
to 400 residents from a
high of 4,000 in 1927. That
was the era when the

WBTT has another hit with'Sammy Tonight'


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR

If you never saw Sammy
Davis Jr. perform, you must see
tribute artist De'zhon Fields
portray the famous singer-
dance-comedian. He doesn't
disappoint.
Fields looks so much like
Davis, you'd think Davis came
back just for the theater run. A
photograph of Davis hangs on
the back of the cabaret-style
stage set, and Fields' resem-
blance is striking, from his
small frame to the black horn-
rimmed glasses, patent leather
shoes, classy tuxedo and black
bow tie he wears.
More impressive is the enter-
taining. When he delicately
sings one of my favorites,
"Mr. Bojangles," and perfectly


maneuvers the famous tap
dance slides with outstretched
arms, he shows he's nailed the
famous performer's actions.
The evening's hit list
includes many of Davis' own
recordings and those of other
artists, including Tony Bennett
and fellow Rat Pack member
Frank Sinatra.
"'Hey There' was the first
song I recorded," Fields-as-
Davis tells the audience.
And the audience applauds,
as it does when Fields sings
and taps to "Candy Man,"
"What Kind of Fool Am I,"
"I've Gotta Be Me," and several
more Rat Pack-era hits of the
early '60s. He also sings Tony
Bennett's "I Left My Heart in
San Francisco" and the Ray
Charles hit "Georgia."
Background singers Tsadok


Porter, a founding member
ofWestcoast Black Theatre
Troupe, and Eboni Denise Lav-
ender, making her debut with
WBTT but a performer since
age 5, are divine additions to
the show.
James Dodge II, music
director and bassist, guides
musicians Nathan Mitchell,
piano; Jamar Camp, auxiliary
keyboard; and Xavier Murray,
drums, to complement the
show with musical resonance.
Fields began singing and
dancing at age 10, according to
aWBTT news release.
"Being told most of his life
that he looked like Sammy
Davis Jr., he decided to research
the performer and realized he
identified with him in many
ways," the release said.
After first performing tribute


shows in his hometown of
Vancouver, Wash., Fields went
on to portray Davis globally.
Nate Jacobs, WBTT founder
and artistic director, found a
perfect match in Fields and
aptly described the show as a
"great high-energy show."
Interest in the show has
been so keen, Jacobs added
two Saturday matinees before
the show even opened. The
show runs through Sun-
day, April 1. Matinees are at
2 p.m. Sunday and Saturdays
March 24 and 31; evening
performances are at 8 p.m.
Tuesday through Saturday.
Tickets cost $28. Call the box
office at 941-366-1505 to check
availability, or go to www.

Puppets populate 'Avenue Q' at Venice Theatre


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

What's not to like
about muppet-like
characters?
At Venice Theatre, one
even forgives the love-
able puppets some very
adult language in the
theater's Stage II produc-
tion of "Avenue Q."
With music and lyrics
by Robert Lopez and Jeff
Marx, based on a book
by JeffWhitty, "Avenue
Q" is one of those shows
that began off-Broadway
but was so good it had to
move to the Great White
Way.
Avenue Q is a neigh-
borhood populated by
people for whom success
is a foreign word. There
is a comedian named
Brian (Kelly Leissler Jr.)
in search of even one
good joke, and Christ-
mas Eve (Kako Kitano), a
psychotherapist without
any clients. The apart-
ment house is run by
Gary Coleman (yes, that
Gary Coleman), played
by Lauren Kelly. There
also are a couple of Bad
Idea Bears, a character
named Trekki Monster
(William Murphy) who is
seriously into porn (this
is an adult show, after


Even if you need to cover your
ears occasionally, see this show.

all) and Mrs. T (Rebecca
Phippard). It is into this
somewhat dysfunctional
situation that Princeton
(Kyle Luckett) moves
because, despite his
college degree, he is still
looking for a job and


being supported by his
parents.
Caitlin Longstreet
portrays Kate Monster/
Lucy with a voice that is
literally pitch perfect and
matches her acting to her
singing ability.


The show is directed
by Steve Dawson, who


appeared in the Golden
Apple production of the
same show a year ago. As
he did for the Apple, he
helped make the pup-
pets for this show. Donna
Buckalter's set is perfect,
with its grafitti-enhanced
fences and colorful
low-rent district-like
storefronts with low-rent
apartments above.
John Andzulis is the
show's tech director. Cos-
tumes are by Jonathan
Hall and lighting by John
Michael Andzulis with
sound by Dorian Boyd.
All of these aspects
provide the ideal sup-
port for a strong cast in
which the actors must
not only sing and dance
and become one or more
characters but do so
while manipulating pup-
pets. They make it look
easy, which is a clue as to
how well each performs.


Some of the songs
in the show include "It
Sucks to be Me" and
"Everyone's a Little Bit
Racist." These two fea-
ture the entire cast and
hint at the adult subjects.
Kitano and Longstreet
score kudos for their
rendition of "The More
You Ruv Someone." Her
pink and green wedding
dress also nearly steals
the show.
Kelly sparkles through-
out the show as Gary
Coleman.
Even if you need to
cover your ears occasion-
ally, see this show.
"Avenue Q" continues
through April 15 in the
Pinkerton Theatre at
Venice Theatre, 140 W
Tampa Ave. in downtown
Venice. For tickets, visit

Frank Baniukiewicz honored at 95


By GEORGE BESSETTE
SPECIAL TO THE
GONDOLIER SUN
A condo community
is fortunate when it has
a member committed
to good maintenance
and attractive grounds.
Ironwood Villas has
had such a member in
Frank Baniukiewicz, "Mr.
Ironwood," who recently
retired from most activi-
ties and duties after 20
years.
Ironwood newcom-
ers often met this thin,
trim and suntanned
man hauling around

summer sun, crouched
over broken sprinkler
heads.
Luckily, residents have
seen the 95-year-old
gracefully hop onto his
bicycle for recreation.
Like a mailman, weather
never stopped him from
doing his chores.
Frank came to Iron-
wood with his wife, Irene,
in 1981 from Fenton,
Mich., after 40 years
working with Chrysler
Corp. Shortly thereafter,
he started a new career,
monitoring the condo's
sprinkler system. With
his mechanical and elec-
trical skills, he became

association's electri-
cal problems as well as
maintaining the exten-
sive sprinkler system and
landscaping and helping
where needed.
Frank also helped
residents, performing
plumbing, carpentry,
electrical and garden-
ing. Many unit owners
called upon Frank's
expertise and advice
when he served on the
condo board. In his
spare time he made
children's toys and
sold them at local craft
fairs. Frank has served
his church, Epiphany
Cathedral, as an usher
and helped run the
bingo games and other


activities at the Knights
of Columbus.
Frank can be seen
every morning having
breakfast at Capri Isle
Golf Club. He is such a
fixture there that the wait
staff doesn't even have
to give him a menu. If
it's Tuesday, it is oatmeal
day.
He and his wife of 66
years, Irene, enjoyed the
Ironwood lifestyle for
13 years, until her death
in 2004. He still has
the registration on his
vehicle "LUV-U-I," after
the love of his life. He
met Gertrude a few years
later and, like Irene,
Frank waits on her hand
and foot.


Frank celebrated his
95th birthday Feb. 5,
and relatives came from
all over the country
to celebrate with him.
On Valentine's Day,
Ironwood celebrated a
combination Valentine/
birthday party at which
homeowners thanked
Frank for his help and
service. Perhaps by pure
chance, he held the win-
ning ticket for the eve-
ning's 50/50 raffle. How
fittingly this topped off
a month of celebrating a
true gentleman.
Frank said he has had
such a wonderful time
celebrating his 95th
birthday, he can't wait to
turn 96.

WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

A1075 Y A82 0 AQ 1093 A10


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
10 Pass 14

What do you bid now?


EAST
Pass


A This is not the problem your
opening bid was. Despite only 14
high-card points, your good
intermediates and three aces easily
make your hand worth 15-16 points
and we would have opened one no
trump. Now you have to choose
between an underbid of two spades
and an overbid of three spades. We
would choose the former because we
only have three-card support.

Q 2 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
A AK10 7 5 A J 96 K10 6 5
The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
16 Pass 26 Pass
9
What do you bid now?
A Again, your prime cards and
singleton make your hand worth a
game try, but not necessarily in
spades partner could easily have
three spades and four or more hearts
for his response. Make your game try
by bidding three hearts. This offers
partner multiple choices.
Q 3 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

A 10 7 A9 8 3 0 AJ 10 6 2 4 A8
The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
10 Pass 1) Pass

What do you bid now?

A Again, your three aces and your
distribution improve the value of
your hand to some 16-17 points in
support of hearts. That makes a raise
to two hearts a woeful underbid.
Jump to three hearts to tell partner the
good news.


Q 4 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

4AK1063 K850K1064AQ

What is your opening bid?

A You have an all-prime hand with
good intermediates to boot. Its value
is more like 21-22 than 19. We would
prefer an opening bid of two no
trump to one spade.

Q 5 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

8 AK Q 10 7 6 2 AJ 10 5 7


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
Pass Pass ?
What is your opening bid?


WEST


A Since partner is a passed hand,
chances of your being able to make a
slam are remote. What you should
worry about is that the opponents
might have a cheap sacrifice or even
a game in spades. Make life difficult
for them open four hearts!

Q 6 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

SA10 6 5 QJ93 0 9 7 2 A7

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

A Partner should have the
equivalent of a sound takeout double
had the opponent opened the bidding
with one club, so you can expect to
make game in a major. However,
partner need not necessarily have
four-card support for both majors. To
make sure you land in the right suit,
cue-bid four clubs and leave the
choice to partner.

AQUATIC
FROM PAGE 1

Brotherhood of Loco-
motive Engineers was
touting Venice as the ideal
retirement city. Designed
by Harvard-trained city
planner John Nolen, it was
as ideal then as it is today
but the end of the Florida
land boom and the onset
of the Great Depression
nearly beat it to death. Yet
400 stalwart souls stayed.
They couldn't afford to
light the street lights but
they did maintain the
chamber of commerce.
That paid off two years
later when the chamber
president heard that the
Kentucky Military Insti-
tute was looking for a new
winter home. Venice had
three empty hotels and a
potential parade ground
where Centennial Park is
today. The former Hotel
Venice and the Hotel San
Marco were transformed
to classroom and dormi-
tory use for the boy's prep
school. The park land was
ideal for a parade ground.
The school's armory and

arm came in 1943, when
the U.S. Army built an
air base at what is today
the Venice Municipal
Airport. By 1944 the city's
population topped the
4,000 mark and was grow-
ing because of the pilot
trainees and their families.
From 1943 to 1956, the
city even had two airports
because world-renowned
orthopedist Dr. Fred
Albee had his own air field

The end of the war
brought another hiccup
as most of those service-
men departed to homes
in other states. But many
would return when they
retired and some even
before that, drawn by the
Nolen plan, climate and
beaches.
The fourth economic
boost, and the one that
generated the most

bankrupt in 1956, the
circus downsized and
sold its 200-plus-acre
winter quarters site in
Sarasota. The circus left
there in 1959, using part
of the money to build a
new arena in Venice on 15
acres leased from the city.
The circus no longer
needed so much space
and certainly did not
need the 37 tents it cre-
ated annually in its own
sail loft.
In 1960 the Ringling
circus moved into the
then-newVenice arena,
which it built using steel
from a former bus depot
in Sarasota.
Overnight, Venice
became a household
word.
As the Ringling circus
trains and trucks trav-
eled the U.S. and Canada,
people saw the words
"Winter home, Venice,
Fla.," on its vehicles. By
1970, the city's population
had mushroomed. There
were new condominium
buildings in town. Venice
Gardens was joined by
other communities off
Jacaranda Boulevard.

in the mid-'80s a young
builder named Michael
Miller created a commu-
nity called Waterford.
Like the "happily-
ever-after" storyline of
"Aquatic," Venice was a
boom town again.
To prove the impact of
the circus on the town,
Feld paid employees
with $2 bills, which
soon flooded stores and
restaurants.
Even today, 20 years
after the "Greatest Show
on Earth" left town, there
are many residents with a
strong connection to the
circus, including Gaona
and the Gebel family.
Built to support ele-
phants and circus equip-
ment, 52 years later there
is not a crack in the arena
floor. It is that arena, with
a performance space
built to match that of
New York City's Madison
Square Garden, that will
benefit from what began
as a grass-roots effort
to save the building for
another life.

Traditions thrive

in Venice
riday, for the first time in 20 years, a major circus will debut its
American run in Venice.
Back in 1992, The Greatest Show on Earth gave
its last Venice performance at its winter home in the Venice
Arena. In the ensuing years, there have been circus performances
in Venice and in Sarasota but nothing to compare with Cirque Italia's
"Aquatic" which opens its Venice run Friday evening in a new
blue-and-white 1,400-seat tent. A companion tent holds conces-
sions and souvenirs such as cotton candy, popcorn, balloons
and red clown noses.
Best of all, a portion of ticket sales will remain in Venice to go to-
ward saving the Venice arena. Although declared structurally sound
by engineers, that building is in serious need of a
facelift especially a new roof and exterior wall covering.
For its proposed new life as the largest performing arts center
between Tampa and Estero, the 4,500-seat venue also needs
new lighting and sound equipment, bathrooms and concession
space renovations.
Do your part to preserve this legacy by buying a ticket to
"Aquatic" from www.venicecircusarts.com or by calling
941-485-7675.
Four events were instrumental in forming the Venice of today -
the John Nolen plan for the city in the mid 1920s, the arrival of the
Kentucky Military Institute in 1931, creation of the Army Air Base in
1943 and, in 1960, the arrival of The Ringling Bros. and Barnum
& Bailey Circus in 1960.
Celebrate all of that this weekend at the train depot's 85th an-
niversary events Saturday and Sunday and by going to "Aquatic"
anytime from Friday to April 1.

What's going on

I wondered, what is all this talk about "The Hunger Games" film
that opens in theaters Friday. I knew it was a book made into a
film, but that's about it. So I thought I would pick up a copy of the
book and see what all the talk is about.
I starting reading the book and couldn't put it down until I knew
how it ended. Now I am one of the people talking about it and look-
ing forward to the film adaptation. "The Hunger Games" is the first in
the trilogy, written by Suzanne Collins, about life in post-apocalyptic
North America. The Capitol runs 12 districts of people who struggle for
the basic necessities to survive. To reinforce the power of the Capitol,
two children from each district are chosen and sent to the televised
Hunger Games to fight to the death.The plot twists and turns until
the bitter end. Now on to read "Catching Fire" and "Mockingjay" to find
out more about the moral struggles in the fight to survive. For movie times,
visit www.fandango.com.

Happy anniversary, Venice


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Saturday, the 85th anniversary of Venice
celebration rolls on into the city's train
depot, with a weekend of events planned.
Saturday, there will be ongoing presentations
in the stations' former freight room where you can
even meet the three Bertha Palmers: the Chicago
socialite, the biggest landowner in Sarasota in
her day and the sharp businesswoman who had
the Seaboard Airline Railway move Venice from
today's Nokomis to its present location. She also
was head of the women's board of advisors for the
Chicago World's Fair in 1893. Albee purchased
much of the land which is today Venice from Palmer.
The three Berthas will be portrayed by Sue Chap-
man, Betty Intagliata and Claire Suter. The Three
Berthas are scheduled for 2:30 p.m.
At 9:30 a.m.Ted Cover will speak about the
extension of the rail line to Venice.
Mary Huba and George Miller will present "A
Portrait of Two Station Agents" and at 1 p.m. the
sons of those agents will present "Working for


Dad at the Depot. The two agents were Donald
W. DeCoaster and Devon Hough and their sons
are Donald W. DeCoster Jr. and Grady Hough.
See the recently restored 1927 fire engine "Old
Betsy" on display and Tom Obermeier who is known
as Tomfoolery" most likely because of the high-
wheel bicycle he rides around town.The bike's front
wheel is 48 inches in diameter. It took time for him
to learn to ride it but now he event rides marathon
rides to raise money for various good causes.
Plan to spend the weekend in Venice. You
will need to be at the depot at least all of one
day to see everything and learn all you can
about the history of this most special city
Sunday, the fun continues with the 85th an-
niversary Tour de Parks bike ride from the depot
beginning at 7 a.m. Preregistration is required for
the Tour de Parks Fun Ride. Visit
www.legacytrailfriends.com.
There will be model train displays in the bag-
gage room at the depot including a Thomas
the Tank Engine. Donald Werth of the Gulfcoast
Railroaders group is in charge of the model


railroad displays.
Over on the island part of Venice, there is more
Sunday fun in Centennial Park where the Fire Ant
Follies Car Show is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 3:30
p.m. Fortunately, Centennial Park and the Depot
are separated by little more than the Intracoastal
Waterway so going back and forth is easy.
Both days at the depot, there will be plenty of fun
for children, including train whistles and even several
kids of train art projects as well as a hands on train
toy table. There will be free lemonade and popcorn
and 1920s music performed by Bruno.
The depot was saved to live a new life as a
Sarasota Area Transit Authority. Buses began
using the site in 2003 even as restoration of the
old building was begun. Since its dedication in
March, 2005, the surrounding area has been
named the Rollins Coakley Park in honor of the
man who spearheaded efforts to preserve the
train station. Today, the site includes a restored
red caboose, picnic area and a statue honoring
the city's longtime favorite son and star of the
Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, Gun-


SUlI FILE PHl.-T:..


The restored red caboose at the Venice Depot
will be open for tours during the 85th anniver-
sary event Saturday and Sunday.

An evening of music with Claudio B & Company


PROVIDED BY MARIA M. KALAPATI
PRESIDENT OF THE ROTARY CLUB
OF NORTH PORT CENTRAL
The Rotary Club of North Port Central will
be hosting an evening of music with Clau-
dio B & Company at 4 p.m. Sunday at the
Charlotte Harbor Event and Conference Center in
Punta Gorda.
This concert event will raise funds for the Ro-
tary Club's community and international projects.
The Rotary Club of North Port Central has
been an official chapter of Rotary International
since 2002. Members raise money for service
projects and volunteer their time and talent to
further the Rotary motto of 'Service Above Self."
This concert is the major annual fundraiser
for the Rotary Club of North Port Central. Funds
raised will support many local area projects such
as the Homeless Coalition, literacy programs, es-
say contests with NPHS for scholarship awards,
funding a student in good standing at NPHS to
attend the seminar for tomorrow's leaders and
honor flight, together with International projects
for polio eradication which has been Rotary's
work for 25 years now and clean water projects
just to name a few.
"As president of the Rotary Club of North Port
Central this year, I asked Claudio and his wife
if there was any chance he can lend his talent
and help us with a major fundraiser to fund these


many worthy projects, and despite their busy
schedule, they truly put a great effort to make this
a reality, and thus truly exemplify a Rotarian char-
acter,' said Maria Kalapati, Rotary Club president.
Claudio B & Company is a local musical group,
featuring master guitarist Claudio Baltierra with
six other award-winning musicians. Melanie
Masselland John Paul are the groups'vocalists.
Gerardo Perez is a classical guitar recipient of
five national awards in Cuba and eight inter-
national awards. Percussionist Claudio Jr. and
Austin Baltierra.
Baltierra himself is an award-winning musician
originally from Santiago, Chile. From a very
young age he watched his father play the guitar
and was influenced to begin learning how to play
at the age of 5. By the age of 14 he was perform-
ing professionally. "I was attracted to playing
music because of the way it connects people,"
said Baltierra. "It is something I love to do."
Baltierra's musical abilities encompass much
more than just playing the guitar though. He is
also able to play the piano, keyboards, pedal
bass, harmonica and percussions. His music
ranges from rock and roll, classical, popular
American and Latin. He is able to perform any
genre of music and does so with an unlimited
repertoire.
Currently, he performs throughout S.W. Flori-
da's for area country clubs, restaurants, festivals,


fundraisers, corporate and private parties. He
has been a featured guest artist for the Charlotte
Symphony annual Edison College Pops Concert
and North Port Orchestra. Baltierra was also the
Charlotte Symphony's guest conductor, chosen
by popular community vote, for the Charlotte
Symphony's annual fundraiser that helps raise
money for local student music sponsorships.
He currently performs for a general audience
most Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evenings
at Mama Leone's restaurant in Nokomis.
Baltierra has his own reasons for joining the
Rotary Club in this fundraiser endeavor. "I love the
Rotary Club. I appreciate the opportunity to perform
for local organizations such as the Rotary because
they support the community and offer goodwill."
Baltierra's brother was active in the Rotary
Club in Maipu, Chile. For the Rotary concert,
Claudio B & Company will perform a Latin American
and International repertoire of songs and instrumen-
tal music featuring classical, flamenco and popular
guitar favorites such as Malaguena, Spanish Eyes,
Never on Sunday, Maria Elena and more.
Tickets are available for reserved and general
seating. Tickets are $30 or $35 for reserved seats
with refreshments. General admission is $20.
The Rotary Club of North Port Central meets
at noon every Tuesday at the Heron Creek Golf &
Country Club.

shows were in the 4,500-seat arena which the circus
used from 1960 to 1992 for its winter quarters.
In the ensuing years, there have been
circus performances in Venice and in Sarasota
but nothing to compare with Cirque Italia's
"Aquatic" which opens its Venice run Friday eve-
ning in a brand-new blue-and-white 1,400-seat
tent. A companion tent holds concessions and
souvenirs. Think cotton candy popcorn, balloons
and red clown noses.
A portion of the proceeds of all tickets sold by
Venice Circus Arts will be given to that organiza-
tion. Members are trying to save the old arena
for a new life as a performing arts venue which
could hold everything from trade shows and large
concerts to circus and ice shows.
The older and larger circus was and is a three-
ring traditional circus show. It is part of the giant
Feld Entertainment empire. Cirque Italia's show
is more like the shows put on by Cirque du Soleil.
In the case of the show debuting in Venice, there
have been comparisons to "LEau" which Soleil
produces in Las Vegas.
The common bond is water. Both shows
feature water gallons of it. The one-ring tent
from Italy is nearly a show itself. The single ring
is ringed with water fountains that send water
shooting high into the upper reaches of the
tent, judging by photos sent by the circus.
Above the ring are more devices which will
spew forth additional gallons of water during

Blue Angels return to Florida International Air Show


BY GORDON BOWER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
It's time to start strengthening those neck mus-
cles. The 32nd Florida International Air Show
is Saturday-Sunday at the Punta Gorda Airport
(28000 Airport Road), and thousands of Southwest
Florida residents will be craning their necks and
looking up at the sky for hours while enjoying one of
the best aerial displays in the country
This year's event is loaded with firsts and
onlys, according to air show president Bucky
McQueen.
'We're the only show in southern Florida to
feature the Blue Angels," McQueen said. "This
year, we have the top civilian jet team, the Black
Diamonds, in their first show of the year, and
Team RV, with 12 airplanes, the largest demo
team in the world."
Any one of these aerial teams would be attrac-
tion enough, but the combination of all three at
one show is a special event.
McQueen said, "In 64 shows over 32 years,
this is the first one with three teams two jet
teams and the largest civilian team. It was a real
coup to get them all to come to Punta Gorda."
He is also proud of the parachute team out of
MacDill Air Force Base, which includes jumpers
from all five branches of the military, and the first
visit by an F-18 Super Hornet, the newest version
of the plane the Blue Angels fly Aerial acts by in-
dividual pilots are booked, as well as the Wicked
Willy Jet Funny Car, which can reach speeds up
to 300 miles per hour.
Of course, nothing can top the Blue Angels
as an attraction.The team of Navy and Marine
pilots is only performing at 34 other locations this
year, and their daring maneuvers are always the
highlight for many air show attendees.
Nobody is more familiar with their show than

What: The Florida International Air Show
Where: Punta Gorda Airport, 38000 Airport
Road.
When: Saturday-Sunday Gates open at 9 a.m.
Tickets: Adults $25, kids 12 and under are $5,
under 2 free at the gate.

available on the website until Friday

Fred Stankovich. Just retired as chief pilot for
Continental airlines, he flew the A-4 Skyhawk
as a Blue Angel back in 1979-80 and is in the
process of moving to the Punta Gorda area.
No surprise that McQueen and his team talked
Stankovich into serving as Blue Angel liaison for
the air show. He said the current Blue Angels
show isn't all that different than the ones he did
back in the 1970s.
"The maneuvers are basically the same. The
rolls and loops are rolls and loops,' he said. "The
difference is all in the more powerful plane.The
F-18 has two engines, each more powerful than
the A-4's single engine. Pilots can put a lot more
G forces on the plane and make more spectacu-
lar turning maneuvers."
The F-18 can fly a lot faster than the jets of his
day, but Stankovich said speed really isn't an issue.
He said, "The airplanes are sleeker looking
and more modern and look like they are going
faster ... but 350 to 400 or 425 miles per hour is
the best maneuvering air speed.There's a sweet
spot there where the airplane handles the best."
He urged air show attendees not to forget the
people who keep those jets in the air.

Area musicians to perform at Homeless Coalition benefit


Guitar Army

BY RUSTY PRAY
CHARLOTTE EDITOR
They come from all over to Gilchrist Park in
Punta Gorda.They come with their guitars,
their banjos, their mandolins, their fiddles
- even their washboards and spoons on
Thursday evenings for Guitar Army, a unique mu-
sical gathering that helps define Charlotte County,
as well as provide part of its soundtrack.
They come, they gather mostly in circles -
and play all manner of musical styles bluegrass,
modern country, folk, blues, original, you name it.
They take turns singing their songs, playing their
instruments and making music. Good music. They
are amateurs but they are accomplished. Sure, there
are some beginners who come to Guitar Army to
learn, but for the most part these people know how
to pick, strum and bow.
On any given Thursday during season when
the area's population is enhanced by the pres-
ence of snowbirds as many as a 1,000 people
will gather. More than 200 will be musicians. The
evening usually starts about 6 p.m., and it can run
late into the night.
The gatherings began in the early 1990s on
Wednesday evenings, and grew from just a few
musicians forming a couple of circles to the power-
house it is today, with upward of 15 circles playing
music.
It grew by "word of mouth,' said Michael Hay-
mans, a Punta Gorda attorney and one of Guitar
Army's founders, along with the late John Cole and
Steve Blackwell.
When Cole died in a plane crash in the Bahamas
in the mid-1990s, "for a while the music stopped"'
Haymans said. But then Blackwell got involved. He
suggested moving the musical gatherings toThurs-
day nights so he could participate. The city was
persuaded to leave the lights on and the bathrooms
unlocked at Gilchrist, and Blackwell gave the gather-
ings a name Guitar Army
Haymans, 57, said the people who started Guitar
Army never envisioned it would grow so big."We saw
it growing, but when Steve and his family got involved,
suddenly it looked like a big party' Haymans said.
That party has grown to include electric guitars,
drums, keyboards full-blown bands. The purists who
believe Guitar Army should be all-acoustic as it was
founded aren't real happy with the volume the elec-
tric musicians pound out from one of the picnic shelters.
But they are there, and right next door might be some
blues guys, and down aways in the gazebo sit the folk
singers with their acoustic instruments.
"It started as acoustical musicians playing music
for musicians, playing and writing songs,' said
Haymans, a card-carrying purist.'When you plug
in, you overrun other people. My hope is, if you feel
compelled to amp it, do it with as low a volume as

Pierre and Paul
PROVIDED BY PAUL B. SEUSY
ierre and Paul are a musical duo. Pierre
plays guitar and sings with a soulful voice.
Paul plays bass and sings harmony vo-
cals. They play an eclectic selection of music and
claim a repertoire of hundreds of songs.
Pigeonholing their sound is difficult, but
perhaps calling them an "island influenced pop"
might be the closest description. In one set, they
might perform songs by Bob Marley and the
Guess Who and then end with a song by Lady
Gaga or Rihanna.
Pierre and Paul perform without any electronic
augmentation, but create a surprisingly full, rich sound.
Their performance is unique. Pierre's face
glistens as he sings, as if he is straining to put all
of himself into the song. Paul moves to the music
while playing intricate counterpoints to Pierre's
guitar. Pierre is usually quiet and almost intro-
spective on stage, while Paul brashly jokes with

the audience and challenges them to pick the
next song. Paul, who is quick to refer to Pierre as
"the talent,' says he started acting as "the front
man" to allow Pierre a few seconds to center
himself for the next song. Pierre says "When we
perform, we are interpretive artists. It's our func-
tion to distill the essence of the song, and then
sip from the essence, and pass it around to the
audience"' Paul jokes: "Music is the grape and
we are the wine"

possible so you're sensitive to other musicians."
They might not all like how one another's music is
delivered, but they're all there. And they all play.
"If you're looking for things to stay the same, well,
ifs not the same:' Haymans said."Ifts still there, but
there's so much more.
'There's always been this fear that it will outgrow
itself and be so big as to be not enticing. But what
people find out when they come is that there's no
authority, so people take ownership. Even though
I've been involved since the beginning, I don't have
to be there. When I pass on, it will still be going"

'Anything Goes' at

North Port Symphony concert


BY CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The North Port Symphony, now celebrating
its 28th year, is offering a diverse program
at 3 p.m. on Sunday at the North Port
Performing Arts Center with guest artist violinist
CarlAnn Evans.
The repertoire list "Anything Goes" is appro-
priately named.The concert begins with "Spring,"
from Antonio Vivaldi's, "The Seasons" for strings/
keyboard, then turns to "Violin Jazz four
strings and a bow,' performed by featured
artist, CarlAnn Evans. Additional selections
include "Fingal's Cave/Hebrides Overture" by
Felix Mendelssohn and "Zigeunerbaron (the
Gypsy Baron) Overture" (with edits) by Johann
Strauss Jr. The concert ends with the full
orchestra playing Aaron Copland's "Hoe-Down"
from "Rodeo" and selections from the musical
"Fiddler on the Roof."
The North Port Orchestra's amateur and
professional musicians, under the leadership
of Maestro Sasha von Dassow, perform five
concerts each season. Their goal is "to promote
charitable and educational activities in the North
Port area."
In 2001 they moved to the music suite adjacent
to the North Port Performing Arts Center on the
North Port High School Campus. The 60 or more
musicians rehearse weekly at the center from
9:30 a.m. to noon every Saturday.
Maestro von Dassow has led the North Port
Symphony for nine seasons. In addition to per-
forming as a cellist with the Florida Orchestra
in Tampa, he is an active chamber musician
who has produced four albums ranging from


classical to rock and roll. His string quartet MOB,
"Musicians out of the Box" travels to area schools
and libraries. After listening to childhood musical
favorites, children are allowed to hold instru-
ments and create their own music. Maestro von
Dassow is also on the faculty of the State College
of Florida and maintains a busy private studio in
Sarasota.
Evans has played as concertmaster for both
the Charlotte Symphony and the Anna Maria
Island Chamber Orchestra. For four years she
has performed with the string quartet MOB
where she collaborated with Maestro von
Dassow on the children's album, "Music Tales,
Volume 2." In addition to performing as a guest
violinist, Evans teaches and performs at Florida
music festivals.
The North Port Symphony is a non-profit
organization that invites area musicians or mu-
sic lovers to join in supporting their orchestra.
Volunteers are needed to perform a variety of
jobs including fundraising, marketing and set-
ting up the stage. Cash donations are always
welcome, and individuals or businesses are
reminded that all donations are tax deductible
and receive acknowledgments in promotional
materials.
Tickets for the "Anything Goes" may be
purchased by calling 941-426-8479 or online at
www.northportsymphony.com. Patrons may use
coupon code NPS 02-03 to receive $1 discount.
Ticket prices are $5, $9.95 and $11. Group
discounts are available.
The North Port High School Performing Arts
Center is located at 6400 W. Price Blvd. in
North Port.

Icenhower to perform tribute to Elvis


BY SHIRLEY GEORGE
SUN CORRESPONDENT
If you close your eyes while Dwight Icenhower
sings Elvis Presley songs, you'll think you're
hearing the real Elvis. When you open your
eyes, you'll see Icenhower's perfected Elvis
moves and gestures. Even his handsome smile
resembles the King of rock and roll. Icenhower
has mastered the'50s, '60s and '70s eras of
Elvis' career and judges and peers consider his
performance one of the best in the world.
Icenhower became an Elvis fan when he was
just 5 years old. He listened to Elvis' records and
watched movies with his mother, an avid Elvis
fan. His Elvis costumes were his favorites for
Halloween.
Icenhower played trumpet in his high school
band in Pomeroy, Ohio and his goal was to be a
band director. In his sophomore year, he sang El-
vis songs in a variety show. Icenhower practiced
while listening to CD's, and watched videos to
learn Elvis' moves.
"I painted sideburns. The only bright yellow
jacket I could find to wear with my black shirt and


slacks was in the ladies department,' Icenhower
said, laughing."I rehearsed for months. I was
scared to death on that stage, but the audience
went crazy."
After performing at community shows and vari-
ous venues, Icenhower became a local celebrity
referred to as that'Elvis boy'
After winning first prize at Elvis contests in
West Virginia and Tennessee, he won third place
out of 170 contestants in Las Vegas where he
performed with the Jordanaires, Elvis' backup
singers.
Icenhower's career really took off in 2004. He
performed with "Legends in Concert,' the longest
running show in Las Vegas. Presently, he has
performed in every state except Alaska, and in
Japan, Canada, United Kingdom, Mexico and on
many cruise ships.
Icenhower met Vicky, the love of his life, in
2008. They were married three months later.
Since Vicky is a devoted Elvis fan, the couple
epitomize a "marriage made in heaven"' "Vicky
is phenomenal," Icenhower said. "She does my
makeup, prepares my outfits, styles my wigs and

Cafe Venice Restaurant & Wine Bar


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
You don't have to go any further off of
Business 41 than the first block of Venice
Avenue to find an intimate caf6 and wine
bar. Caf6 Venice is open for lunch and dinner in a
casual fine-dining atmosphere on the Island.
Owner Kay Kropac grew up in the restaurant
business, working in it for basically her whole life.
Her family owned the well-known Hellriegel's Inn
in Painesville, Ohio for 48 years, so she naturally
gravitated toward a restaurant when she began
living and working in this area."I've lived in Venice on
and off for about 20 years,' she said."In the begin-
ning, I would work here (at Caf6 Venice) in the winter
and at home for my mother in the summer"'
When Caf6 Venice came up for sale in 2006,
Kropac bought it. Since becoming a restaurant
owner, she has prided herself on maintaining a
consistent staff. "Most of my staff has been with
me since day one,' she said. "Our customers
know us and we know them. I think I've finally
made a name for myself."
Part of the reason for Caf6 Venice's continued
success is the intimate bistro-style setting and
menu, and a few menu items in particular.'We have
a whole-heart romaine lettuce that is thrown on the
grill,' said Kropac.'What makes it fantastic is the
homemade balsamic reduction and feta cheese."
Michelle Litzler, director of pr and catering,
agreed. "The top favorites at lunch are the grilled
romaine salad topped with a homemade crab
cake and the chicken salad," she said. "For dinner,
they go crazy over the pork ossobuco."
The restaurant also has an extensive wine


selection and periodically offers wine and food
pairings and tasting for their customers. "We
try to use several different wine distributors so
we have a well-rounded wine list, ranging from
moderate and up,' said Litzler.
Unlike many other smaller restaurants who will
only cater for functions at their own facility, Caf6
Venice will also cater events offsite. "We take
pride in not having a set catering menu,' said
Litzler.'We want to personalize the menu for each
event and individually tailor it to meet their needs."
She said they will cater anything from small
private parties to larger events at bigger venues.
During season, the restaurant is open seven
nights a week for dinner and six days a week
for lunch. Caf6 Venice also has a fairly new in-
between menu. "Later in the afternoon, we have a
Terrace Menu,' said Litzler. "It has smaller, lighter
fare something to hold them over until dinner."
Kropac and her Caf6 Venice staff maintain close
ties to the community and participate in a constant
flow of charitable functions. Coming up is an ap-
pearance at the Toast to Venice on March 30 at
the Venice Historic Train Station and a chili cook-
off entry at the BBQ Bash at the Venice Airport
on April 21.
Litzler said the Venice Theatre patrons are
frequent visitors to the restaurant, as are the
many shoppers strolling up and down Venice
Avenue-and she said she knows why they keep
coming back. "I think they come here for the food
and the smiles," she said.
Caf6 Venice is located at 116 W. Venice Ave.
For more information, call 941-484-1855 or
www.cafeveniceontheisland.com.

The Fun Chorus presents 'Sing'


BY CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
he Fun Chorus of Englewood is presenting
"Sing" at its Annual Spring Concert sched-
uled for 3 p.m. Saturday-Sunday.
The title is short, but says it all. "Sing" cel-
ebrates singing, and the Fun Chorus special-
izes in singing songs that will delight, entertain
and inspire music lovers. The program begins
with the 32-member chorus celebrating music
with a song entitled "Celebrate with Music" with
Royal Aires Dance Band Leader Jack Demmink
playing trumpet.
Other numbers include: "Etiquette" featur-
ing Peggy Patural, Nereda Rehm and Dianne
Bouwma; "Sing" with soloist Kathy Gagne and
the chorus and "Let me Entertain You" with Al
DeSilva, Sheila Herbert, Bob Bulcock, Toni Shar-
low, George Flewelling, Sandy Courtney, Bill and
Mary Jane Siereveld, Ginny Zitzkat, Norma Sue
White and Mary Rockow. "Everybody's Favorite
Melody" will feature Nancy Jonseck as soloist.
The concert concludes with the audience
invited to sing-along with "Sing, Sing, Sing."
The Fun Chorus was founded in 1986 and has
thrived and grown over the years. Dick Wieland,
president, noted that husbands and wives often
team up to join together. Clarice Dell' Anno, who
has directed the chorus for 10 years, met her
husband, Robert Bulcock, when he joined the
Chorus five years ago. Bulcock is the announcer
for "Sing' Those working behind the scenes

are: stage manager, Al Sharlow; props/scenery/
artwork, Nell Gallagher; sound equipment, Bill
Siereveld; music librarian, Mary Jane Siereveld
and choreography/costumes, Sheila Herbert and
Sandy Courtney
Long-time member Bill Roberts remem-
bers that in the early years, before Dell' Anno
became director, chorus members sang only
melody. Now, he explains, they have advanced
to four-part harmony. Courtney, the group's
secretary, put it this way, "We are a fun group
and try to keep it light, but we earnestly prac-
tice for concerts. Clarice manages to make us
sound better than we are."
Dell' Anno is a director/pianist who, while
standing, directs with one hand, plays piano
with the other, and controls piano pedals with
her feet. She's quick witted, and the group
can't help but respond with bursts of laughter
throughout rehearsals. It's unimportant that
singers read music, according to Dell' Anno. It's
more important that they enjoy bringing pleasure
to others. Assistant director Herbert does an
outstanding job of conducting rehearsals with
both large and small groups who perform "Sing
Outs" that entertain people in senior citizen
communities and assisted living residences.
The Fun Chorus also provides scholarships
to area high school students seeking music
careers.
New singers are always welcome to join the
Fun Chorus. They rehearse at 6:30 p.m. every

An eating adventure at Pies and Plates


BY BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGER
LET'S GO CORRESPONDENT
About six years ago, Tristin Murphy was a
landscaper when his mother, Cindee Mur-
phy asked him to help out in the kitchen
of the family's restaurant, Pies and Plates, 2310
Tamiami Trail, Punta Gorda, while their chef was
on maternity leave. He'd had previous experi-
ence in food service, so he agreed.
When the chef decided to stay home with her
child, however, Tristin's "temporary job" became
permanent. And he couldn't be happier.
"Nothing compares to having a job you love,"
said Tristin, who is now the Head Chef at Pies
and Plates. Most of the time, he points out, he's
also the only chef. Cindee helps with the daily
baking and soups. She and Beth Lanni, who
runs the culinary school, brainstorm new recipes
and tweak menu items.
"The benefit to having one chef is that people
know exactly how the food is going to taste every
time," said Tristin. "If they loved a certain sand-
wich last week they're going to love it this week
too, because I make it the same way every time.
Occasionally, I'll make something that just doesn't
look right, and I'll remake it before sending it out
to the customer because the quality of our food is
important"
Consistency and quality control are essential
at Pies and Plates. Their fruits and vegetables
come from the local farmer's market. Sauces are
homemade and food is made to order. "Fresh
and healthy" is their goal except for desserts.


Pies & Plates is known for their Gooey Butter
Cakes and other delectable desserts. "Our
motto is to eat fresh and healthy food as much
as you can," said Cindee, "but if you're going
to splurge on dessert, splurge. Just do it in
moderation."
They want their customers to have an
experience an adventure, even when they
eat at Pies and Plates. According to Cindee, the
food has to keep up with the unique flavor and
excitement of the rest of the store -- the gift shop
that sells useful but unusual kitchen gadgets and
gifts and the restaurant's very popular culinary
classes.
Customers love the unique ingredient com-
binations in menu items, and surprises such as
shredded cabbage, cucumber-wasabi dressing
and secret sauces that pop up in dishes.
Some are the result of Pies and Plates'
summertime Guinea Pig Club. Adventurous
customers try experimental dishes and give their
feedback, and the favorites make it onto the
menu.
Tristin also likes to get out of the kitchen and
talk with the customers to see what they like and
don't like. Apparently, they like a lot at Pies and
Plates. Customers continually reward the res-

How to control

urine leakage


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I urinate very often, and
many times I can't get to
the bathroom in time.
It's very embarrassing
and has made me house-
bound. I have little warn-
ing, and when I do, I have
to be very quick-acting. Is
there treatment for this?
I'm 73 years old and live
by myself. R.J.
ANSWER: The name of
the problem is "urinary
incontinence," the invol-
untary loss of urine. Two
kinds of incontinence
exist. One is stress incon-
tinence. This is urine loss
when physically active,
like lifting a heavy bag of
groceries, moving fur-
niture or any such work
requiring straining. It also
happens on laughing,
coughing or sneezing. In
all these instances, pres-
sure within the abdomen
forces the urinary blad-
der to expel urine. I don't
think this is your kind of
incontinence.
Your loss of urine
sounds more like urge
incontinence, also called
overactive bladder. Blad-
der muscles contract sud-
denly and unexpectedly,
and make a person dash
to the bathroom to reach
the toilet promptly.
Pelvic floor muscle
exercises (Kegel exer-
cises) are useful in both
kinds of incontinence. To
learn how to perform the
exercises correctly, stop
the flow of urine in mid-
stream. The muscles you
contract to do so are the
ones you want to exercise.
You can do the contrac-
tions sitting, standing or
lying down. Perform 10
contractions in a row and
hold each contraction
for three to five seconds.
Repeat the exercise
three times a day. As
time passes, increase the
number of contractions
to 15, and hold them for
10 seconds. It takes two
or more months to obtain
results.
The Estring ring is a
device inserted into the
vagina. It releases a very
low dose of estrogen and
is left in place for three
months. The amount of
estrogen is tiny, but still
warnings have to be given
about the possibility of
breast cancer and blood
clots.
Medicines tame force-
ful bladder contractions.
Detrol LA, Sanctura, Vesi-
care, Enablex and Ditro-
pan are the names of
some of them. All require
a doctor's prescription.
DEAR DR. DONO-
HUE: Recently I went to
my doctor for a yearly
oon


Dr. Donohue
Readers may
write Dr
Donohue at -
RO. Box
536475,
Orlando,
FL 32853-6475

checkup. Blood and urine
tests were done. They told
me that I had blood in my
urine. What's the cause of
that? The doctor told me
to have an ultrasound,
but I would like to hear
from you first. M.H.
ANSWER: Am I right
in thinking you didn't
see the blood, but it was
found by examining the
urine with a microscope
- microscopic hematuria
(urine blood)? Its causes
are many. The most dan-
gerous cause is cancer
somewhere in the urinary
tract. More-common
causes are kidney stones,
urinary tract infections
(kidney or bladder),
trauma and prostate
gland infections and in-
flammation. Even heavy
exercise can cause blood
to be found temporarily
in the urine.
Your doctor wants you
to have an ultrasound so
a cause can be identified
and treated. If ultrasound
doesn't reveal a cause, a
CT scan or inspection of
the bladder with a scope
are possible next steps.
Have the ultrasound done
right away.
TO READERS: Urinary
tract infections are a
problem for both men
and women. Female
infections greatly out-
number male infections.
The booklet on this
topic explains them and
their treatment. Read-
ers can obtain a copy by
writing: Dr. Donohue
- No. 1204, Box 536475,
Orlando, FL 32853-
6475. Enclose a check
or money order (no
cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6
Can. with the recipient's
printed name and ad-
dress. Please allow four
weeks for delivery.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
Why is it necessary to get
off prednisone slowly? -
D.D.
ANSWER: High doses
of prednisone (one of
the cortisone drugs)
suppress the adre-
nal glands' cortisone
production of it. Slow
withdrawal gives the
adrenal glands a chance
to recover their normal
synthesis of cortisone.
Given time, the glands
do recover.

Long-living buckeyes


Dear Readers: Wow! You
really responded to the col-
umn on the buckeyenut,
with many personal and
charming memories. Here
are some more:
Annabell C. in Arp,
Texas, wrote: "I always read
and enjoy your column in
the Tyler (Texas) Morning
Telegraph. My dad always
had a buckeye in his pants
pocket to 'bring good luck.'
He died in 2010 at the age
of 93. We buried him with
his buckeye in his pocket.
Today's column brought
back fond memories of
Dad. Thank you for cover-
ing so many topics."
Brenda M. in Clovis,
N.M., wrote: "My parents
were from Kentucky, and
from childhood we KNEW
buckeyes were lucky and
sort of warded off evil. Our
whole family still carries
one, and when my dad
passed away three years
ago, he was buried with a
buckeye in his pocket."
Bonnie D. in New
Hampshire wrote: "I never
knew a day that my mother
would not carry a buckeye
'for good luck and good
health.' She passed away at
the age of 92 and had good
health until the end. When
my sisters were going
through her things, they
found a small handbag I
had given to her, so they
returned it to me. I opened
it up, and there was her
lucky buckeye. I now carry
it with me in remembrance
of my mother."
These are such personal
and heartwarming memo-
ries! I learned something


Hints from Heloise

new and am now going
to put a buckeye in my
suitcase and purse! Thank
each of you for writing.
- Heloise

Vegetable soup
Dear Heloise: I never
buy canned soups because
they are loaded with so-
dium and other unhealthy
ingredients. So, I purchase
100 percent low-sodium
vegetable juice, pour as
much as I need into a pot,
heat and enjoy. Patricia
in Connecticut

Peaches and pears
Dear Heloise: I read
your column every day
and have learned a lot of
things. When I usually buy
peaches or pears, they are
not ripe. Can you tell me a
quick way to ripen them?
- Kathy S. in Washington
Yes, I can, and it's easy
as peach pie! Place them
in a brown paper bag,
close it up and let it sit at
room temperature for a
couple of days.
Here's another hint: Se-
lect peaches and pears that
are firm but, when pressed,
give just a little. Heloise

Men, women choose opposite

sides in dinner table debate


DEAR ABBY: At a recent
dinner party the men and
women got into a heated
debate about porn. The
men said men love porn
because it shows women
enjoying sex with abandon.
We women protested that
women who behave this
way in real life are labeled
"sluts" by both men and
women. Do men not real-
ize this makes no sense?
If you can't answer this,
maybe your male readers
can. NO FAN OF PORN
DEAR NO FAN: Not
being an expert on the
subject of pornography
or why men enjoy it, I
posed your question to a
recognized expert Larry
Flynt. His answer is dif-
ferent than the one given
by the men at the dinner
party. He said that men
love porn because men are
aroused by the visual. Then
he added that women are
more turned on by the
written word, which is why
torrid romance novels are
so popular.
P.S. Women who enjoy
sex with abandon are not
necessarily "sluts." Many
of them have high morals,
are very happily married,
and find it stimulating
to watch porn with their
husbands.
DEAR ABBY: I'm getting
married this summer. I
want to send an invitation
to my brother, but I don't
want his live-in girlfriend
to come. We used to be
friends until I realized
she was lying to me and
using me. Now she's with
my brother, who is 23
years older than she is,
which caused a rift in my
relationship with him. We
barely talk anymore.
I know I should be more
understanding because
it's my brother's life. He
enjoys her company. But
I find her hospitality fake
- just like the smile she
puts on. She's not wel-
come at my wedding.
I want my brother
there, but I'll feel terrible
if he feels alone. What's
the best way to handle
this? Should I tell him
verbally that only he is
invited and not send an
invitation? -WANTS A
HAPPYWEDDING IN
MASSACHUSETTS


Dear Abby

DEAR WANTS A HAPPY
WEDDING: Telling your
brother with whom you are
no longer close that his live-
in girlfriend isn't welcome
at your wedding is sure to
go over like a lead balloon.
If you want him to be there,
accept that his girlfriend is
part of the package deal. You
can bank on the fact that
he would feel alone without
her, so plan on seating them
some distance from your
table at the reception. It
will make her presence less
painful for you.
DEAR ABBY: My boy-
friend, "Justin," and I are
in our early 20s. We were
high school sweethearts
and we have a little girl
together. Everything
was going well until
Justin went to a car lot
to look for a car for his
mother. He came home
that day with a new one.
My problem is he used
the money he told me
he was saving for my
engagement ring as the
down payment.
I am very hurt. I tried to
seem happy and excited
for him, but he knew I was
upset and says I'm being "ri-
diculous." At this rate, with
the new car and the insur-
ance for it almost doubled,
I don't see how he'll have
anything put away for a ring
in the near future.
I have told Justin I don't
care about the size or the
price of the ring, it's the
thought behind it that
counts. Justin still says he
wants to get me an expen-
sive one.
I'm beginning to think
he's making excuses so
he won't have to propose
to me anytime soon.
What do you think? -
ENGAGED-IN-WAITING
IN OHIO
DEAR ENGAGED-IN-
WAITING: I think you
nailed it!


"Wherefore the king said unto me, Why is thy counte-
nance sad, seeing thou art not sick. This is nothing else
but sorrow of heart. Then I was very sore afraid."
- Nehemiah 2:2.
The outsider can pick up what is going on inside
us. Let the peace of God and the joy of the Lord come
forth. "If God is for us, who can be against us?"

Opening lead: Four of 4

If you want to encourage or
discourage the suit partner has led,
it's simple enough. But what if you
want to switch? How can you tell him
which of the other two suits to lead?
Consider this deal from the Edgar


Kaplan Blue Ribbon Pairs at the
recent ACBL Fall North American
Championship held in Seattle.
North's decision to pass one no
trump rather than correct to two
diamonds is at best questionable.
West leads fourth-best of his longest
suit, covered by the jack and taken
with the queen as declarer follows
with the six. The deuce of clubs is
returned to nine and ten, and back
comes the three to East's king. When
West allows the eight of clubs to
hold, East must decide to which suit
to switch spades or diamonds.
West must provide the help. For
the answer, go back to trick two.
Since he knows from the play that
East holds the king of clubs, he could
have won with the ace or with the ten.
So, if he wants a spade returned, he
wins with the higher of the two, the
ace, and if he wants a diamond, he
wins with the lower club. So return a
diamond and the contract must fail.
