Utility rates raised over objection


SUN PHOTO BY BOB MUDGE


Mike Rafferty, left, and Venice City Council
Member Bob Daniels exchange comments about
a proposed utility rate ordinance that Rafferty
said discriminates against three of the city's
manufactured home communities.


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Venice City Council final-
ized a new utilities rate
fee schedule for water and
sewer use Tuesday after
two-and-a-half years of rate
studies, stakeholder meet-
ings and months of public
hearings.
But 666 signatures on a
petition by manufactured
home owners weren't
enough to get them a quick
fix.
Mike Rafferty, a Bay


Indies Mobile Home Park
resident and the only official
member of the stakeholder
group unhappy with the
new rates, told council the
"readiness" charge for some
mobile home park residents
is higher than for others. He
organized the petition drive
asking all mobile homes
be treated equally at the
lower rate.
City staff said that while
he might be on to some-
thing, they had insuf-
ficient data to act on his
recommendation.


The confusion came about
as they reviewed single-fam-
ily rates and multi-family
rates. There isn't a separate
category for manufactured
homes.
Manufactured home parks
fell into the single-family
category if they had a sepa-
rate meter and the multi-
family category if they had
a master meter. Some had
higher water usage rates,
which included a higher
"readiness fee," while others
didn't. Staff said city meter
readers would need to go


out and verify each hookup,
and council would need to
approve a separate usage
water rate for manufactured
homes. That could take up
to 90 days.
Having waited more than
two years to get this far,
council chose not to delay
implementation of the new
rates any longer.
The Bay Indies MHP board
of directors threw its sup-
port behind the staff recom-
mendation and supported

City has


deal for


feds

By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

The city of Venice has come
up a potential solution to
break a stalemate between the
Federal Aviation Administra-
tion and U.S. Department of
Transportation's Office of the
Inspector General. The stale-
mate has stalled federal fund-
ing for improvements at Venice
Municipal Airport.
The OIG, which has control
over certain airport funds,
found that past leases were
undervalued and questioned
revenue sharing, partly blam-
ing the FAA, which tallies
revenue differently.
"They are both feeling they
are right and neither wants to
bend," said Mayor John Holic.
"I think it will take some kind
of outside influence. We can
take the hit, offer a compro-
mise and move forward and
not continue to focus on
what's happened in the past."
Council agreed unani-
mously, with former mayor
Ed Martin calling it a creative
approach.
"They are not going to give
us any money until this is
resolved," said Council Mem-
ber Bob Daniels. "We have to
throw some carrots out there."

Yo


Yoga instructor Elin Larsen, left, addresses a crowd of more than 100 Tuesday at Venice City Hall. Supporters of
her free yoga on Venice Beach wanted to be seen and heard. The county wants Larsen to register and pay a fee.


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Almost 200 yoga fans
marched on city hall in
downtown Venice on Tuesday
in a show of support for free
yoga on the beach.
They weren't scheduled on
the agenda and there was no
issue of contention before
city council, which sup-
ports Elin Larsen's free yoga
classes on Venice Beach, but


they came anyway, some by
car, some by foot, others by
bicycle.
It was a show of force.
Inside, a supporter asked
city leaders to back the pro-
gram. Outside, they milled
about, chatting and clapping
occasionally.
"We're just here to be seen
and heard today," said Larsen
to the crowd, many wear-
ing supportive T-shirts. "It's
all positive. The support is


overwhelming."
"You do a great job of wak-
ing up everybody's day," said
Cathy Abel, a yoga on the
beach fan.
The county recently said it
wants Larsen to register her
classes through the county
Parks and Recreation Depart-
ment, which maintains the
city-owned beach. It also
wants her to pay a fee, take

SHOOTING


Mom: Son


lucky to


be alive

By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER
If the bullet had entered
Gilmore Sanford's body a half-
inch higher, he might have
died instantly early Sunday
morning.
According to Sanford's
mother, one of two bullets
fired from a gun fairly close to
her 22-year-old son grazed his
heart during a 12:30 a.m. alter-
cation with a man off Raintree
Boulevard in North Port.
"He may have bled out right
there if the bullet would have
hit him in the heart," Sanford's
mother, Ronnie Lee, said Mon-
day. "God was looking out for
Gil. I don't believe he knew the
shooter. I just think he was in
the wrong place at the wrong
time."
On Sunday, after North
Port police questioned him
for hours, Joshua Dubik, 23,
was arrested on a charge of
attempted second-degree
murder.
"He (Dubik) lives inVenice
and the victim lives in Port
Charlotte, so I'm not even sure
they knew each other," North
Port Police Capt. Bob Estrada
said. "He (Dubik) confessed to
the shooting."
According to Estrada, police

Film festival kickoff draws a crowd


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER
Monday night, for the first
time ever the Sarasota Film
Festival hosted a kickoff event
in Venice. It was held at Ven-
ice Theatre as a collaboration
between SFF and the Venice
Gondolier Sun.
About 180 attended the free
event, which was held in the
theater's lobby. Attendance
was open to the public, but
reservations were required.
Hors d'oeuvres were served by
Cafe Venice and drinks were


available at a cash bar.
Several giveaways were
handed out, mostly tickets to
an independent film showing
at the festival. A SFF T-shirt and
Tervis tumbler were also given
out.
"The Sun Coast Media Group
is now an official media spon-
sor of the Sarasota Film Festival,
and as the partnership devel-
oped we thought it would be
appropriate to have a kickoff of
the festival in Venice," said Tim
Smolarick, Venice Gondolier Sun
publisher.
"The film festival is just as


important to Venice people as it
is to those in Sarasota. Victoria
Pastore (SFF associate mar-
keting director) and I went to
Venice Theatre and talked with
Murray Chase [executive/artis-
tic director of Venice Theatre].
He said he would be happy to
host the kickoff."
"When Tim Smolarick asked
if we'd be willing to host this
event, we were glad to," said
Chase. "The Sarasota Film Fes-
tival is one of our county's best SUN PHOTO BY AUDREY BLACKWELL

The Venice Police

said.

Margaret Long
Margaret "Peggy" Long,
our mother, died in the
early morning hours of

March 22,
2012, with
her family
by her side.
She left this
world on
a strong
breeze, out
of the west, heading for


WEDNESDAY, MARCH 28, 2012


her island home.
Mom was born July 29,
1925, to Harold and
Margaret
Hutchings
in Paget,
Bermuda,
S the third
of eight
children.
We were
blessed
with many stories of her
life in Bermuda. She was
an avid swimmer, tennis
player and artist. In her
teens, Mom became
Bermuda Junior Tennis
Champion and won first
place in an art contest
that included submis-
sions from the entire
British Empire.
During the Korean War
era, Mom met and mar-
ried a U.S. Marine sta-
tioned in Bermuda, Jack
R. Long Sr. She moved
with him to Emmett,
Idaho, arriving with her
two daughters, Debbie
and Jan, in the middle of
winter. Mom gave birth
to two more children,
Jacque and Randy, in
Boise and proceeded to
make a home for herself
and her children. She
always made special
times special.
Following her divorce
from Jack, as the single
parent of four, Mom
relied on her wit, strong
will and tenacity to raise
her family. She became
a U.S. citizen in the early
1960s, a source of great
pride for her, and began
her career as a freelance
accountant, which she
continued until the age
of 81, when a stroke left
her unable to work. She
loved her work, which


was exceptional, as many
of her employers will
affirm.
Mom moved back
to Bermuda in 1966
with her two youngest
children and continued
life there. In 1979, Mom
moved to Venice, Fla.,
where she made her
home until the last few
years of her life.
Throughout her life
she enjoyed "treasure
hunting" collecting
shells, coins, stones and
plants. She loved her
"Montana rubies," mined
on a trip with her eldest
daughter. In addition,
Mom was a knitter. She
knitted hundreds of hats
and scarves, which were
donated to various orga-
nizations in Boise.
Mom took pride in
her family and ancestry,
which has been traced
to the 1400s. Her interest
has given us the gift of
connectedness. Family
history is interwoven in
all our lives. Her great-
grandfather visited Boise
from Bermuda in the
1870s as a visiting min-
ister at Christ Chapel,
now on the Boise State
University Campus. It is
in this chapel that her
memorial service was
held on March 24, 2012.
Mom was an extraordi-
nary woman throughout
her life. She had a bohe-
mian spirit tempered
by responsibility and
obligation. Despite her
own struggles with hopes
not met, Mom grasped
life with both hands. She
gave freely and helped
those in need. Mom
made an impact in this
life she was greatly

Data use increases in county


By CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

Participants at the recent
Community Data 2.0:
North Port workshop were
told by members of SCOPE
that the data are out there
to confirm just about any
hypothesis and can be
obtained for free. More-
over, the data can be used
to help local communities
make informed decisions
for the future, said Allison
Pinto, who directs the
community data initiative
at SCOPE.
"We're decoding the
data using (them) for
the sake of community
change," she said. Pinto
said the data gathered are
used to help communi-
ties "become aware of
what already exists ... and
what's important."
SCOPE stands for Sara-
sota County Openly Plans
for Excellence, accord-
ing to its website. The
idea for SCOPE followed
discussions among county
residents concerned


about the county's future.
Formed in 2001, the
nonprofit organization
began as a community-
wide process that brought
residents together to
build an understanding
of the qualities that make
the county a good place
to live, work and raise a
family.
In some cases, SCOPE's
Colleen Mcgue said, that
"quality" can be as simple


as a shop that makes a
great-tasting doughnut.
According to its website,
SCOPE is a resource for
anyone to access a fact-
based picture of the Sara-
sota County community
through data reports like
the Community Report
Card and People Count. It
holds data-related com-
munity summits to pro-
mote discussion among
diverse groups in an


attempt toward thoughtful
community action.
The workshop was a
gathering of about 40
people, including com-
missioners, commission
hopefuls, civic leaders,
neighborhood represen-
tatives, longtime city resi-
dents and an aide from
the office of U.S. Rep.
Vern Buchanan, a Repub-
lican who represents
Florida's 13th District.

Business offers alternative to cars


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

AVenice family thinks it
has an alternative to rising
gas prices and constant traf-
fic congestion on the island:
eco-friendly, battery-operated
transportation in the form of
street-legal golf carts.
Kathy Cushing, owner of
Venice Street Legal, 137-B Sea-
board Ave., said, "We're giving
people an alternative to using
their cars with the objective to
make it fun for people coming
to Florida to live the dream
and travel comfortably and
pleasurably."
Her carts are like a golf cart
but with an underchassis giv-
ing a very comfortable ride,
and larger tires, making them
safer on the road.
"Our cars are street legal,
with every facility required:
turn signals, mirrors, horns,
lights, brakes, seat belts with
side bars and all wheels


SUNI PHUIU BY NUGLE BU I IUON
Kathy Cushing, owner of Venice Street Legal stands alongside a family
sitting in a new eco-friendly Street Legal cart in Centennial Park, downtown
Venice: Lilly Anna Barry, back seat, passenger Jennifer Barry and driver Anna
Smith.


covered," she said.
Their fleet of 10 all-new
custom-designed carts take
four passengers. The back seat
can be lowered for storage of


bags, a cooler or drinks and
even has a mount holding six
fishing poles.
"Our concept is to help the
city with the traffic problems


on the island of Venice, to
which our services are lim-
ited," said Cushing. "It is like
renting a car; you go to our
website, fill in a rental agree-
ment and we will make sure
your car is delivered when you
arrive. If you have a garage,
you can keep it in there for the
whole rental period. To main-
tain the battery you simply
connect the vehicles to the
electricity supply."
Vehicles are hired by the day
starting at $90, with weekly,
monthly, seasonal and off-
season rates. Drivers must be
21 or older and have a driver's
license. They will use their
own vehicle insurance and
drive under the same rules as
a driving a car. Upon delivery,
the driver learns all about the
operation of the vehicle, using
the charger, rain cover and all
equipment, and then does a
mini test drive.
"We are trying for the
future to have more of these


vehicles on the streets to slow
down the traffic as the maxi-
mum speed for the vehicle
is 25 mph and most people
drive them at 18-20 mph,"
she said. "It will increase
parking space as three carts
fit in one space."
She is excited that the city
may install charging stations
for electric cars.
"I had seen difficulties older
people experience in getting
about Venice and realized
there was a need for some-
thing of quality, low enough to
the ground, safe and con-
venient, then I saw the car
online," she said. "It is not a
golf cart, but a very safe, cus-
tomized vehicle designed for a
specific purpose."
Ron Cushing manages the
fleet, providing everyday
availability by website reser-
vations. Their office is open
9 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays.

Legacy Trail Pit-Stop opens


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Last week, Venice
Mayor John Holic joined
cyclists, joggers, roller
bladers and other users
of the Legacy Trail near
the Colonia Lane Trail
Station in Nokomis for
the grand opening of the
first official Legacy Trail
Pit-Stop General Store,
at the Church Street
intersection.
Seeking input for
several weeks from users,
owner Mari-Anne Saun-
ders, a Canadian lawyer
and avid cyclist in Can-
ada, has assembled all
the facilities requested,
with natural smoothies,


nonfat yogurts, coffees
and energy drinks. She
sells fresh packaged
food from local cater-
ers, including morning
snacks, sandwiches and
wraps, together with
energy bars, fresh fruits
and salads. She also car-
ries mini-first-aid kits,
sunscreen, rain ponchos,
caps and fluorescent
sweatshirts.
A neon green tube
girl on a bike is strategi-
cally sited in front of the
completely renovated
building. The interior
is designed to look like
John and Mable Ring-
ling's railroad car with
seating under air con-
ditioning. The store's


exterior d6cor is KeyWest
fun, with covered seat-
ing below misters and
fans for summer cool-
ing. Concrete tables and
benches provide addi-
tional seating for 90. She
is installing an outdoor
rain shower for users to
cool off.
"Don't expect a repair
technician, but we
have compressed air
and replacement inner
tubes for fix-it-your-
self tire repair," said
Saunders.
Friends of the Legacy
Trail told her its moni-
toring estimated 22,000
users in January and
25,000 last month.
The store opens 30


minutes after sunrise
and closes 30 minutes
before sunset. Call
941-374-7335.

to 2010, but only raised
$1.4 million.
Due to a six-year stat-
ute of limitations, how-
ever, the OIG said the
city owed only $493,070
plus interest, not the
entire $1.5 shortfall.
It concluded that
half of the land used by
Sharky's is located on air-
port-obligated property,
and therefore the airport
should receive 50 percent
of the lease revenue.
The FAA, however,
said the city is only owed

enues from a portion of
the land, not business
revenues.
Currently the city
charges a base rent and
5 percent of revenue over
a certain amount. Thirty-
three percent of the rev-
enue goes to the Airport
Fund, and 66 percent to
the city Pier Fund.
Holic plans to meet
with the FAA on April 5
to finalize the settlement
of issues identified in


the OIG report. The FAA
would then take the offer
to the OIG.
"My hope is that we can
work quickly to move for-

tation of improvements
shown on the airport
layout plan, including the
rehabilitation of the noise
mitigation runway, and
turn the page to a new

are still investigating what
caused Dubik to allegedly
fire at Sanford during the
scuffle.
"There was a large
group of people at this
party which was deep
in an undeveloped part of
North Port on Bead Court
- beyond (Interstate 75)
bordering Charlotte or


WEDNESDAY, MARCH 28, 2012


DeSoto counties," he said.
"We are still questioning
people who witnessed the
altercation."
After the shooting,
Dubik fled on an ATV.
Police were called and
quickly set up a perime-
ter, requesting assistance
from the Sarasota County
Sheriff's helicopter,
Estrada said.
"Dubik was caught try-
ing to leave the perimeter
in a vehicle," Estrada said.
"What we know is the


two men were involved
in an altercation prior to
the shooting. Dubik was
seen pointing the gun in a
threatening manner."
Dubik was taken to the
North Port ER on Toledo
Blade Boulevard for minor
injuries he sustained in
the fight, police said.
Sanford was flown by
helicopter to Blake Medi-
cal Center in Bradenton,
where he underwent sur-
gery on Sunday and again
Monday. He is in the ICU


in stable condition.
Sanford's friends are
organizing fundraisers
to help with his medical
costs.
Dubik's Facebook page
profile picture is a hand-
gun. He also has a photo
of himself on the site in a
gun store holding a Ruger
Mini 14 rifle, captioned
"My new toy."
Dubik is being held at
the Sarasota County Jail
without bond. If con-
victed, he faces 25 to 30


years in prison.
Estrada said police are
aware parties with drugs
and alcohol, all-terrain
vehicle riding and "mud-
ding" occur in the unde-
veloped acreage in the
eastern part of town.
"Some of the popular
areas are deep into the
woods," he said. "Last
week some hikers out in
the eastern end of town
were stranded and we
needed a helicopter to
find them. ... I've been


with the agency for 24
years. We know people
go out there. We've been
running people out who
whoop it up, go mud-
ding and ATV riding out
there for years. They are
partying on roads that
lead to nowhere. The only
way to find the parties
is to follow the balloons
or signs. There are trails
people have made with
big trucks that we can't
get to in our vehicles."

can help expose more people
to it, we are excited to do that.
It's a natural partnership."
Greg Luberecki, director of
marketing for Gulf Coast Com-
munity Foundation, repre-
sented his organization.
"Gulf Coast Community Foun-
dation has been a past sponsor
of the Sarasota Film Festival's
community outreach and pro-
gramming efforts," Luberecki
said. "Specifically, Gulf Coast
helped fund free outdoor movie
screenings by the SFF in south-
em Sarasota County locations.
"Collaboration among arts
organizations is key to further


strengthening our incredible
arts and cultural community.
So, it was great to see the
Sarasota Film Festival mak-
ing its Venice announcement
at Venice Theatre. The event
welcomed more Venice com-
munity members into the film
festival, and it showed the festi-
val's commitment to the region.
"It was also great to see the
Venice Gondolier help make
the event possible. It was a
wonderful showcase for the
Sarasota Film Festival and for
Venice Theatre, and a great
opportunity for local residents
who appreciate the arts. Gulf
Coast tried to help get the
word out to Venice residents in
advance of the event, and the
turnout was quite impressive."
Mark Famiglio, president of


SFF board of directors, and Tom
Hall, SFF director, spoke from
the landing in the theater's lobby.
Famiglio thanked those respon-
sible for the Venice kickoff,
including Tim Smolarick, Murray
Chase and Cafe Venice, and the
2012 lead sponsors, including
Amicus Foundation, Fami-
glio Family Foundation, Regal
Entertainment Group, Sarasota
County Tourist Development
and Wilde Lexus of Sarasota.
"They'll give everyone a free
Lexus here tonight," he joked.
Hall talked about the film
lineup, saying there are more
than 230 films this year.
"Our point for being here is
to thank everyone in Venice and
share the opening of the film
festival with them," he said.
When he asked for a show of


hands of those who have ever
attended the festival, a small
percentage raised their hands.
He thanked them for the support
and invited all to attend a movie
or two. He did a quick walk-
through of the film schedule.
"Robot & Frank" will open
the 10-day festival on April 13.
"It was a hit at Sundance,"
Hall said. "Frank Langella, lead
actor, will be here for a Q&A
and a party will spill outdoors
at the Van Wezel."
Through Women's Eyes, films
for and about women, will be
April 14 and 15; U.N. Women
Filmmakers reception will be
April 14.
"They've been around 13
years and this is our third year
with them," Hall said.
The centerpiece film is "Dark


Horse," April 20 at Sarasota
Opera House, and the closing
film, April 21, is "Under African
Skies." Paul Simon won't be
here, but the topic triggered his
album "Graceland."
"We are eager to get Venice
more a part of the festival,"
Hall said. "You are a part of our
community, and we want to be
part of your community."
Famiglio said volunteers
are still needed, especially to
distribute flyers in Venice. Call
941-364-9514 or go to www.
sarasotafilmfestival.com.
Most tickets for the indepen-
dent films cost $12. For more
information about the festival,
which runs April 13-22, go to

SUN NEWSPAPERS


OUR VIEW



Take time and get Springs plan right


No one ever said this would be
simple.
Sarasota County and city of
North Port commissioners spent three
hours last week sifting through the
myriad issues involved with the pres-
ervation and redevelopment of the
jointly owned Warm Mineral Springs
spa property.
The result?
Another meeting sometime in the
next three months.
Yes, no one said this would be sim-
ple. It got messy last week and it will
be messy in the future. Three hours in,
we started pondering the intractable
question: "How many commissioners
does it take to screw in a lightbulb?"
No, that's unfair. It's difficult enough
to get 10 people to agree to anything,
let alone something as big as a vision
for the future of a critical public asset.
Ten commissioners? How about a plan
that resonates with the true stake-
holders who make up the population
of North Port and Sarasota County?


So we'll cut everyone some slack.
The county and city have owned the
81-acre spa property for 16 months
now. The spa is operating smoothly.
If the recent second annual Eco-Fest
is any indication, the reputation and
reach of Warm Mineral Springs are
growing. Things are going swim-
mingly, it seems.
But the visioningg" process is bound
to be a slog. And, yes, we do want to
get it "right." Whatever that is.
The long-term dynamics will be
competing visions of "right" and how
two public entities will reconcile those
visions. All agree that No. 1, the geo-
logical and hydrological integrity of
the springs itself must be preserved.
But then, do we operate the spa
more or less as it exists now, with
some minor upgrades and con-
nected walking trails? Or do we chase
the possibility that something far
grander is possible, that Warm Min-
eral Springs' 87-degree, mineral-rich
waters could become Florida's version


of Baden-Baden or Colorado Springs?
A little wide-eyed, perhaps, but
many think the tourism and economic
development potential is large. In
fact, one other thing city and county
commissioners agreed to was a staff
investigation into resorts elsewhere.
The months-long public-input
process seems to indicate more mod-
est goals, though. Data presented
showed people were most excited by
the eco-tourism potential (343 votes);
resorts (253), hotels (232) and res-
taurants (205) dropped off from that
high. Respondents also overwhelm-
ingly wanted more resident discounts
(344) and more health programs (343).
Hiking and biking trails also attracted
300-plus numbers.
So, it's a mixed bag. As a consultant
said, the major public themes ran
from archeological research, resource
and manatee protection and to hotels,
road and sign improvements and bet-
ter pricing options. A wide range.
There's no reason to rush the


process. These are big questions and
the debate is bound to be messy. It
seems optimistic to think they'll be
settled quickly. We do want to know if
there's interest in a bigger-time resort,
but have to remember county and
city taxpayers want to maintain and
improve public access. They don't
want to spend more public money on
the place either.
An adjoining property owner
already wants to build a holistic health
park across the street. He's expressed
interest in a hotel on another neigh-
boring parcel. Large property owners
on U.S. 41 also expressed interest in
hotels there. Are these the beginning
of a larger redevelopment spurred by
private investment?
We have a feeling this process
will continue to be messy for awhile
longer. Meanwhile, it does seem
wise to have a Plan B in the form of
proposals for continuing the daily spa
operations past the current contract's
expiration in June 2013.


Calling all captains


More than likely our resident
boaters are busy prepping
their vessels for the upcoming
boating season, as the weather
has made the turn. The warm
weather brings out the captain
in us all.
Having said that, now is
perhaps the best time to bring
up the 23rd annual Venice
Christmas Boat Parade. I
know you might be thinking
it's a little too soon; perhaps
waiting until the fall would
be better timing and bring
better results. But both John
Osmulski and I feel there
is no better time to remind
folks of the parade as we feel
that boaters are in the mind
frame we want them to be -
eager to set sail and enjoy this
Florida weather.
Here is our pitch on that
score: Our goal is to have the
largest boat parade ever seen
in Venice, perhaps the largest
in the state. We are seeking 100
boats of all sizes to help spread
the joy at Christmas time in
Venice.
I know it can be lots of work
to get a boat ready for a long
parade, and most certainly
it's at the busiest time of year.
Well, we have an answer.
Michelle Ryan will be heading
up a group who will help deco-
rate your boat and get it ready
for the special voyage.
Michelle is going to need all
sorts of donations in the form
of outdoor Christmas decora-
tions, so if you have any items
that could be used as a decora-
tion for a boat in the parade,
you can contact me here at the
Gondolier Sun and I will put
you in touch with Michelle.
Another perk for new par-
ticipants could be your entry
being paid if you register now.
How do you register your boat
for the parade? Simply go to
www.venicechristmasboat
parade.com and register your
boat online. Don't worry; once
you participate in the event,
you will be glad you did so.
Let's talk about money. All
proceeds generated through


the parade, a 501(c)(3), help
youth boating, including
scholarships through Rotary
Futures and Venice High
School. Additionally, donations
are made from this event to
All Faiths Food Bank, Venice
Wildlife Center and various
other agencies in Venice. Truly,
this group does a great job of
helping those agencies and
programs in need.
John Osmulski, the leader
of this group, has set a goal of
$40,000 in funds to give back
to the various agencies that
work year-round to help make
Venice a better place to live. It's
an aggressive goal but we feel
that the groups we serve are
worth the effort.
Our pitch on this one is,
if you enjoy the evening of
entertainment provided by
this event, why not donate
something back, either in the
form of money or time with
Michelle's group to help us
reach our goals? Everything
helps.
The website will be your
key to participation. There are
countless organizations out
there we feel could benefit
from hosting a boat in the
parade. John Osmulski has
issued the following challenge
not only to the organizations
the boat parade serves but to
all 501(c)(3) organizations:
"Cost will be covered for new
organizations in the parade.
Find a boat and get it regis-
tered. The awareness you cre-
ate by participation cannot be
measured."
As you can see, the Christ-
mas Boat Parade is on our
minds constantly. Please, if you
have a boat, let's find a way
to ensure you are part of this
wonderful parade of well-lit
boats not for me, not for
John and no, not even for you.
Do so for the wonderful time
of year and for those organi-
zations that benefit the most
from this undertaking.
Following is a list of those
who already have a boat in the
parade:
Roman Gzly, Kelly Ireland,
Craig Shour, Floyd Bair, Mike
Lafferque, Mike Paquin, John
Thomas, JohnWatjen, Charles
Long, Taylor MacPherson, Gus
Olson, Joe Fanciulli, J.R. Mus-
tari, Jim Cassata, Wayne Not-
tingham, Greg Bair, All Faiths
Food Bank and the Venice
Gondolier Sun.

Roof top. If the arena is in
such great shape, as everyone
claims, why are the promot-
ers on their Web page asking
10 local contractors to donate
1,000 square feet each of roof
repairs to help repair the roof?
That is a lot of roof. People say
it would be nice to have rock
concerts, car shows, a skating
rink, conventions, dog shows
and so forth. Has anyone ever
sat down and written out a plan
of how much this will all cost,
or the expected attendance,
the average price per event, the
labor costs, the equipment cost,
the air conditioning cost? Also,
consider that this would prob-
ably be a viable arena for about
three or four months per year.
If these facts have been devel-
oped, I think the Gondolier Sun
should publish the information
so we all can give a fair evalua-
tion of this situation.
Editor's Note: Engineering
reports show the structure
of the building to be in good
shape but supporters have
acknowledged from the start
that the roof was in poor con-
dition and made repairing it
their first goal.
War. Can anyone explain to
me why Rick Santorum, Rush
Limbaugh and the extreme
right have decided to declare
war on women?
Greed. Definitely, we need
regulation. Obviously a free and
open market place is not work-
ing. We need to regulate Wall
Street's speculation. One penny
on gas prices equates to $1 bil-
lion, as has been stated. The
last time gas prices were $4,
the price was driven by market
futures. How long can we let
the Wall Street traders affect the
entire economy of the United
States? Once billions came to
Morgan Stanley, the price came
down back in 2011. The United
States already produces more
oil than we import, so why is the
market after the poor taxpayer.
Greed? Yes, Wall Street greed.


Let 'em




















Have It
Stressed. Why is the caller
who is jealous of the beach
yoga master so grouchy and
mean? Maybe some yoga
would help the stress. Try it.
Carnival. The Italian Festi-
val has turned into a carnival
rather than an Italian festival.
People from the Italian Ameri-
can Club obviously don't want
Italian restaurants coming
in there and serving quality
food. There's not even decent
pizza. It's frozen crusts. I would
love to see, and many of my
friends would love to see, a
more varied menu. When I see
people going into the carnival
lines and eating fried dough,
it's really turned into more of
a carnival than a nice Italian
festival.
Out. There is a long stretch
of street lights out on Albee
Farm Road, right by the school
zone. Could these be fixed,
please? It's too dark and dan-
gerous. Thank you.
No cops. It's Saturday mom-
ing of the art show in downtown
Venice. Traffic on Venice Avenue
and Business 41 is gridlocked.
The bridges are backed up over
to the other side and not an


officer in sight. Where are you
guys? You've always been here
for us before. Some of us who
have to take care of business on
the island on Saturday would
really appreciate your presence.
Fair's fair. If the government
pays for Viagra to enable men
to impregnate women, then
government should pay for
women to prevent pregnancy.
Blue flu. The Venice Art Fes-
tival is in full swing. Hundreds
of people are walking across
Business 41, Tamiami Trail.
Every intersection is blocked
by cars. It takes 15 minutes to
get from the bypass coming
down Venice Avenue over the
bridge to 41. No Venice police
officer in sight. What could
the Venice Police Department
possibly be doing at 10 o'clock
on a Saturday morning that
they couldn't assign at least
one officer to try to control the
situation? This is an unbeliev-
able occurrence that happens
every time there's something
going on on Venice Avenue.
Ridiculous. When they start
charging people for yoga, then
they can go to volleyball and
then football throwing and
then beach chairs. They would
make a lot of money that way.
This is getting ridiculous in
this city.

The ABC'


of political parties


FRANK
PATTI
GUEST COLUMNIST

In this year of elections,
both primary and gen-
eral, voters should have
an idea of the structure of
the major parties. Being
the secretary of the Sara-
sota Republican Party,
I speak from the point
of view of the Republi-
can Party, although the
Democratic Party has a
similar structure.
At the head of the party
is the chair of the Repub-
lican National Commit-
tee, Reince Priebus. The
chairman is the face
and spokesperson of the
party and represents the


party in the media. The
RNC supports candi-
dates, solicits donations
and works with the
states for unity during
elections. It selects the
city for the convention,
finances it and runs it.
The RNC mediates dis-
putes and resolves issues
between the states.
The states have their
own version of the RNC;
in Florida it is the Repub-
lican Party of Florida.
The chair is Lenny Curry,
and he heads the party
for all the counties in the
state. All counties report
into the RPOF and it
establishes the rules gov-
erning the state party.
Each county has
state committeeman
and woman and they


represent the interests of
the county and also par-
ticipate in the election
of the chair of the RPOE
The RPOF helps candi-
dates, finances events
such as the Presidency
5 and will help organize
the national convention
to be held in Tampa.
Each county has its
own administration that
works with and uni-
fies the activities of the
county. In Sarasota it
is the Republican Party
of Sarasota. Joe Grut-
ers is the chair of the
Republican Party of
Sarasota County, and he
schedules events, helps
candidates and works
to coordinate the efforts
of the various clubs and
activities. Gruters has


been instrumental in the
recent victories of the
Republican candidates in
Sarasota and has brought
most of the presidential
candidates to the county
for rallies and fundrais-
ing events.
The Republican clubs
are the heart and soul
of the party. The mem-
bers of these clubs are
the workers who make
the phone calls to get
the voters out to the
polls. They are the ones
you see waving signs
and giving out bumper
stickers and lawn signs.
They staff the rallies
and events of the party
and faithfully attend all
events.
Much of their work
is at their own cost and


based upon the solid
belief that if you want
better government, then
you must work to help
the candidates who
you believe will provide
that better government
and will represent your
beliefs.
At their meetings the
Republican Clubs have
candidates and speakers
that inform the public
of pending legislation or
relate historical inci-
dences in which they
have participated. As
an example of this, the
newest club, the Noko-
mis, Osprey, Venice Area
(NOVA) club on Saturday
at 7 p.m. will have as its
guest speaker Cortland
Barnes, one of the 1970s
hostages held in Iran


when the U.S. embassy
was attacked. Although it
will be held by a Republi-
can club it is also meant
to be a source of educa-
tion for nonaffiliated vot-
ers, who are also invited.
It is very easy to sit
back and complain about
officials or candidates,
but it is much harder
to actually take action
to see that the candi-
dates that you prefer
are elected to office. Get
involved in the voting
process and support
your candidate both with
action and votes.
Remember: If you don't
vote, don't complain.

Frank Patti is secretary
of the Republican Party of
Sarasota County.


I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


First yoga, and then ...
Editor:
You've probably heard
or read about free yoga
on the beach. Elin Larsen
leads this great activity.
There has been an
outpouring of public
support for Elin and yoga
on the beach as well as
an expressed wish by all
for the county to stay out
of it. Mayor John Holic
came up with a really
neat and simple solu-
tion to what was, frankly,
becoming a contentious
situation. His swift and
decisive action assures
a daily ritual that so
many beach lovers
clearly support continues
without controversy or
interruption.
I have supported
and encouraged Ms.
Larsen for some time.
Her contribution to the
quiet, environmentally
friendly enjoyment of our
beaches and the pursuit
of wellness and health is


both selfless and beyond
reproach. But my support
for her initiative has gone
beyond the realm of free
yoga. It's about all the
things that brought us to
Venice in the first place.
As a resident of Venice
for 23 years, I can tell you
that the term "quaint,
small-town feel" has
been used more than
once to describe our city.
Our location, geogra-
phy and amenities have
made us a nationally
recognized destination
time and time again. Yet,
those gems are easily
overshadowed when we
get mired in this sort of
bureaucratic meddling.
To keep things in
perspective, look at it
from the other side. What
if 300 people showed
up at Caspersen Beach
every morning to swim a
1,000 yards? What if 150
anglers showed up at the
jetty each day at noon
to share fishing stories
and throw some bait in


the water? What if 200
of your neighbors went
to Venice Beach at dusk
each day to watch the
sunset and share dishes?
What about the group
of spiritually fulfilled
families and friends that
sing gospel music on the
beach at Valencia Avenue
each Friday night. And
yes, on each clear morn-
ing and afternoon, what
about all those sunbath-
ers basking in the glow?
Are these seemingly
unorganized, spontane-
ous events also subject
to the same bureaucratic
scrutiny for licensing,
insurance and oversight?
If we still want to use
the "quaint, small-town
feel," the answer is "no."
I, for one, am grateful for
the outcome and would
like it to serve as a fitting
reminder that we all have
a right and the oppor-
tunity to enjoy the same
neighborhood-friendly
activities that brought us
here.


Let's never overthink it.
Emilio Carlesimo
Venice City Council

Fed up with fees
Editor:
Recently I began con-
tacting various managers
of apartment complexes
in regard to availability of
renting.
It is so very interesting
that some have applicant
fees, criminal investi-
gation fees and credit
fees, plus some have a
criterion of an income
of more than twice the
amount of monthly rent.
(An example would be
if rent was $500, income
would be at least $1,250
per month.)
I know nothing of
individuals who manage
such properties. I do not
have any knowledge of
their background.
It is also interest-
ing that applicant fees,
criminal investigation


fees and credit fees are
usually not applied to
employment applicants.
It is rather strange and
ironic that such fees
would be applied to
individuals seeking
residence. Refunds not
applicable; denial could
occur for any reason.
Quite a racket on fees.

VENICE RALLIES FOR WIN OVER
PORT CHARLOTTE: Venice erased
a 5-2 deficit by scoring seven runs
over the final two innings to pull
out a 9-5 win over Port Charlotte in
a Class 7A-District 11 game at Pirate
Cove in Port Charlotte.
Venice scored three runs in the
sixth inning to tie it at 5-5 then
added four runs in the top of the
seventh inning for the victory.
The nine runs is the most scored
by Venice since the second game of
the season on Feb. 17.
Venice's Brandon Elmy drove
in five runs and reliever Cooper
Hammond pitched six solid innings
as Venice pulled back from an early
deficit.
In the seventh inning, two runs
scored on a single by Elmy.
Hammond (5-0) allowed the
Indians the opportunity to come
back, going six innings and giving
up one run on three hits. Not bad for
a guy who is usually reserved for the
closer role.
"Hammond is the guy who
usually gets it done,"Venice coach
Craig Faulkner said."He struggled a
little bit in the first inning tonight,
but that's the first time he's come
into a game that quick. But he
usually shuts it down:.

RIVERVIEW EDGES VENICE:
The lack of hitting is getting a little
frustrating for Venice High coach
Craig Faulkner.
The same problem occurred
Monday night as the Indians left
seven runners in scoring position
to spoil Brandon Elmy's pitching
performance. Riverview scored in
the bottom of the sixth inning to
pull out a 1-0 victory in a nondistrict
game at Twin Lakes Park in Sarasota.
It's the second consecutive
one-run loss by the Indians, who
dropped a 4-3 decision to Braden
River on Friday.
The Indians (10-6) left runners in
scoring position in five of the seven
innings second, third, fourth,
sixth and seventh.
"We got ourselves in positions
to score,"said Faulkner."We did not
bear down and put the baseball in
play in those situations. We struck
out maybe four or five times with
men in scoring position. That is
when they just can't strike us out.
When you have men in scoring
position, you got to barrel it up.
Shortened the swing and shoot
it the other way. Somebody has
to step up. We haven't found that
person yet. We have some guys that
are hitting. We have to get more
guys to do that."
Venice had a runner reach second
base in the second inning but two
consecutive strikeouts by Riverview
left-hander Sean Labsen, who
pitched a five-hit shutout, ended
the threat.
Labsen (4-1) pitched a complete
game with eight strikeouts and
three walks.
The Indians loaded the bases in
the third inning on a bunt single
and two walks but another strikeout
prevented them from scoring.

SOFTBALL CLASS 7A-DISTRICT 11




Venice handles Port Charlotte


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

The words "gigantic" and
"huge" were used to describe
Venice's 9-1 victory over Port
Charlotte on Tuesday at Venice
High.
The reasons were simple as it
gave the Lady Indians their first
Class 7A-District 11 victory and
also exacted some revenge on
the Lady Pirates.
On March 2, the Lady Pirates
grabbed their first-ever victory
in school history over the Lady
Indians with a 4-2 win.
"Last time we played them
they only got four hits off us and
we had nine or 10 but we made
six errors that cost us that game
dearly," said Venice coach Fred
Sosnoski.
"Almost like it jinxed us," said
Port Charlotte coach Rodney
Taylor. "I was telling them the
other day, that we got that big
win over Venice but one of our
worst wins because we haven't
done anything since."
In fact, Port Charlotte's last
win was against Venice a
string of five straight losses.
To reverse the outcome in
this game, Venice (4-13 overall,
1-7 district) took advantage of
errors.
Venice took a 1-0 lead in the
first inning. Amber Yonker led
off with a single. A sacrifice bunt
by Syd Lakins moved Yonker
to second base. A groundout
advanced Yonker to third base
then the senior scored on a wild
pitch.
The Lady Indians took advan-
tage of an error to score two
runs in the third inning for a 3-0
cushion.
With one out, Yonker reached
on an infield single. Another sac-
rifice bunt by Lakins moved Yon-
ker to second. Carly Rosa was hit
by a pitch. Kelly Ott followed by
hitting a fly ball into left-center
field. The ball fell out of the
center fielder's glove for an error
scoring Yonker and Rosa.
"It should have been 1-1
going into the sixth inning and

"That one error made it 3-1."
Venice senior pitcher Emalee
Sands limited the Lady Pirates
(4-11, 2-5) to just one hit an
infield single in the first inning.
Sands hurt her pitching hand
in the bottom of the fourth
inning after sliding back to third

FROM PAGE 12

In the fourth inning, a single, a
walk, a stolen base and a wild pitch
had runners on second and third but
a strikeout ended it.
A runner reached second base in
the sixth inning with one out but
two groundouts kept the Indians off
the scoreboard.
Elmy allowed just three hits in
five innings with five strikeouts.
Through four innings, the Rams
(8-7) only had one hit a single in
the first inning.
"He pitched his heart out
tonight,"said Faulkner."He had a
great slider. He's a power pitcher and
only a sophomore and is coming
into his own. When you have a guy
that pitches like that, we have score
more runs."
Venice prevented Riverview from
scoring in the fifth inning. With one
out, Alex Detweiler singled up the
middle off Elmy's glove to shortstop.
Luke Maglich followed with a single
between first and second base,
which glanced off Venice second
baseman Michael Knott's glove into
right field. Detweiler tried to break
the scoreless tie by racing home.
However, he was cut down at the
plate on a throw from shortstop
Dalton Guthrie to catcher Ryan Miller.
Riverview, which was limited to
five hits, scored the only run in the
sixth inning. Kyle Washburn singled
off Venice reliever Tyler Shambora.
After two fly outs, Shambora was
called for two balks, moving Wash-
burn to third base. Sam Dannheisser
bounced a single up the middle to
score Washburn with the only run.
"That can't happen for a junior
that's been pitching on varsity for
a few years," said Faulkner about
the balks."He just wasn't stopping
(during his windup). If it happens
once, it's very disappointing because
you put a runner in scoring position.
It happens twice, it's tough. It can't
happen in this type of baseball
game."
The Indians advanced a runner


to second base with two outs in the
seventh inning as Michael Knott
singled and stole second base.
However, a strikeout ended the

Horseshoe crab trackers wanted


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
officials expect mating
horseshoe crabs to appear
around high tide, just
before, during or after the
full or new moon. Con-
ditions around the new
moon on March 22 and
the full moon on April 6
are expected to be ideal
for the spawning horse-
shoe crabs.
FWC officials ask the
public to report any sight-
ings. Go to myfwc.com/
contact and then click
on the "Submit a Horse-
shoe Crab Survey" link.
You can also email your
findings to horseshoe@
MyFWC.com or call the
FWC at 866-252-9326.
In 2011, the FWC
received 14 reports from
Sarasota County, 1,500
from Charlotte County
and 910 reports from Lee
County.
The tracking of horse-
shoe crab nesting in
Florida is part of a
national effort by Atlantic


States Marine Fishing
Commission, said Tiffany
Black, a state researcher
with the FWC Crustacean
Research Department.
The federal tracking of
horseshoe crabs began
when their numbers
significantly dropped
off and the loss began to
affect other species.
In Florida, horseshoe
crabs serve as forage for
loggerhead turtles and
large sharks. Migratory
sea birds also feed on
horseshoe crab eggs.
According to research-
ers, evidence suggests the
red knot shorebird, which
migrates from the south-
ern tip of South America
to the Canadian Arctic,
actually coordinates its last
layover when en route to
its breeding grounds with
horseshoe crab spawning
in Delaware. The red
knots gorge themselves on
horseshoe crab eggs before
flying on to Canada.
Black said horseshoe
crabs reach sexual matu-
rity in 10 years.
Horseshoe crab females
lay clutches of 2,000 to

30,000 eggs on beaches.
They usually like to crawl
up onto low sloping
beaches with low wave
energy, and generally
come ashore on high tides
during the full and new
moon. Females can spawn
several times in a season,
laying up to 100,000 eggs.
The embryos pass
through 21 development
stages over two to four
weeks. Those that survive
enter a "trilobites larvae"
stage, so named because
horseshoe larvae resem-
ble extinct trilobites.
Initially, eight weeks
after the adults spawn,
the larvae survive in the
water caught in sand
particles and emerge into
open water during high
tides. The larvae will then
remain in open water
mixed in with plankton
six to eight days before
molting into their first
juvenile instarr" stage.
Only 33 out of every
1 million larvae are
expected to survive and
become juvenile horse-
shoe crabs.

the bottom of water bod-

before dinosaurs roamed

as 500 million years ago,
according to Susan D.

The making of a mezuzah


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
"Hear, O Israel, the Lord our
God, the Lord is One"
So begins the Jewish prayer
"Shema Israel."
When written in Hebrew on
parchment by a trained scribe,
the words become a "mezu-
zah," which is fastened onto
the upper third of the doorpost
of one's home.
In order to protect the mezu-
zah, which is considered as
sacred as Torah itself because
the words on the mezuzah
come from Torah, the sacred
parchment is nearly always
placed in a case. Cases often
are handmade and are usually
works of art. They can be made
from metal, wood, clay or any
other material deemed kosher.
Recently, members and
friends of Chabad of Venice
gathered for a class during
which they and their chil-
dren could make a mezuzah
case. Rabbi Yochanon Klein
of Miami was present to talk
about the history and tradi-
tions of the mezuzah and the
painstaking and meticulous
work that goes into the making
of such holy items. Local artist
Nadia Marks offered kits for
three simple mezuzah cases
that could be made by children
as well as adults.
The class was part of a
monthly Chabad program to
teach a different "mitzvah,"
which is most often referred
to as a good deed or act of
kindness.
Klein brought many items
for use in his demonstra-
tion: goose feathers or quills,
parchment, special ink made
from black walnuts and sec-
tions of cheek hide from cows.
All these items are consid-
ered kosher, which primarily
pertains to Jewish dietary laws
but just as Jews would not eat
meat from a pig, they would
not use parchment from the
hide of a pig for their Torahs or
mezuzahs.
The cheek hide from cows
(a kosher animal) is used in
the making of a tefillin box
phylacteryy) worn by orthodox
Jews when they attend prayer
services at their temples. The
rabbi said it takes nine months
to make such a box, which
is from one piece of de-oiled
leather that is painstakingly

dampened, stretched, dried,
dampened, stretched and
dried as many times as needed
to create the perfect cube
into which special prayers are
placed. A tefillin box cannot be
off by even 1 millimeter at any
point.
"If a scribe forgets one letter
(in the Torah or mezuzah), it


is not kosher," Klein said. "It
would have to be buried. You
can't just throw these things in
the trash."
Consider that there are
304,807 letters in a Torah,
according to Klein.
But 95 percent of the time
you can fix a mistake, he said.
Torahs usually contain 60

Hebrew.

sheets of 30-by-30-inch parch-
ment, all joined together to
make one long scroll. A new
Torah costs on average about
$50,000, he said.
After finishing his lesson
on these religious objects, the
rabbi stayed to write names on
small piece of parchment with
one of the goose quill pens and
walnut ink. For most people he
translated their given names
into Hebrew and wrote in
Hebrew letters.
While he did that, several
students, including Abbie
Davis of Nokomis, adjourned
to the back room of the temple
to make a mezuzah case.
"Is there any significance to
the number of items put on a
mezuzah?" she asked the artist
who supplied such decorative
trimmings as pieces of colored
glass and bolts of metallic
threads and twines and pieces
of clay for the base.
"Ask the rabbi," replied Rivka
Schmerling, wife of Rabbi Sho-
lom Schmerling of the Chabad
ofVenice.
He mentioned several num-
bers, including eight, which is
good because it's a reminder
of the miracle of Hanukkah,
when the oil lasted for eight
days. It also is good because it
is more than seven, he said.
"Three also is a good num-
ber," he said.
Next came a decision about
whether to use twine or glue.
In the end, she usedWeldbond
glue to adhere three pieces of
glass to the top of the mezuzah
and then wrapped metallic
twine around it for an addi-
tional bit of decoration.
The base was made from a

special air-drying clay pro-
vided by Marks. Davis rolled
it into the desired shape and
crimped the bottom so the
mezuzah parchment would
not fall out. On the front,
above the decorations, she
carved the Hebrew letter
"Shin," which is the first word
of the prayer placed within
the case. The letter also often
refers to "God."
"You have to take the parch-
ment out every seven years to
have it checked by the rabbi,"
Davis said.
Shellie Rubin said she has a
mezuzah on every door in her
house, including the garage
door and the door to the lanai.
The parchments and cases
can be purchased together or
separately. Rubin said she buys
hers at the synagogue's gift
shop to make sure.
"If the mezuzah is too little,
it was probably computer gen-
erated," she said. "It should be
handwritten."
The youngest ones making
mezuzahs were 2 12-year-old
twins Joshua and Brooke Feo
of North Port. They used a kit
created by Marks to make gifts
for their grandmother, Helene
Feo, who lives at Lakewood
Ranch.
As Davis finished her
mezuzah case, she said she
would soon be going to Israel
for the first time and that she
could not imagine going there
without knowing everything

A smile makes a difference


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Every afternoon a
lady waited at the SCAT
bus stop on Avenida del
Circo.
She appeared to be
sad.
She did not go unno-
ticed by students of the
SKY Academy at the
South County Family
YMCA who passed that
bus stop daily on their
school bus.
One day, at the sugges-
tion of their bus driver,
the students waved at
her.
She didn't respond.
They waved again the
next day and then the
next.
Finally, on the fifth day,
she waved back and
she smiled.
The students cheered.
They did not know her
name. Nor did they know
that smiles do not come
easy to Denise Jolicoeur.
She lives alone at Bay
Indies in an old manu-
factured home with a
leaking roof. The little
money she earns clean-
ing other people's homes
at Village On The Isle
goes to pay doctors for
recent cancer treatments.
She also must budget for
regular check-ups.
So there is no money
to fix the roof or to deal


To get to her job at Village On The Isle, Denise Jolicoeur leaves
her home at 5:30 a.m. and rides to the T.J.Maxx Plaza, where
she boards the first of two buses to get to work.

resulted from the leaks.


She wants to move
closer to her job, and she


found a place that costs
less than the monthly

Indies but until she can
fix her home she cannot

Her adult children
avoid her out of guilt
because they owe her
money she lent them
years ago.
Jolicoeur cannot afford
a driver license, let alone
a car. To get to work
she rides her tricycle
from Bay Indies to the
T.J.Maxx Plaza early


each morning. There she
catches a bus to the Ven-
ice Train Depot, where
she boards the bus to
Avenida del Circo. When
it is raining she has to
take a taxi, which makes
a huge impact on her
already strained budget.

Girls Inc. holds Global Film Festival


STAFF REPORT

A free Global Film Fes-
tival showing films for,
by and about girls will be
held Thursday, 6-8 p.m.,
G.WIZ, 1001 Blvd. of the
Arts, Sarasota.
It is open to girls
ages 5-14. Films will
be watched in two age
groups: 5- to 9-year-olds
and 10- to 14-year-olds.


Parents are encouraged
to watch films with
the 5-9 age group. An
education specialist will
discuss the messages in
the movies.
This one-evening fes-
tival is the culmination
of the first-ever Sarasota
Girls Inc. Global Film
Festival, which seeks to
encourage girls to have a
dialogue with girls about


films that are relatable,
original and meaningful
for girls.
During February and
March, films were viewed
by the girls at Girls Inc.
The films entered offered
a fresh vision for girls
with high artistic qual-
ity in cinematography,
script, sound, acting and
editing.
Films also inspired girls


to think and communi-
cate about topics they
don't usually encounter
or to think in ways that
they don't usually think.
Most important, the films
portray girls as strong,
smart and bold, encour-
aging them to develop
and act on these traits.
Girls Incorporated of
Sarasota County is dedi-
cated to "inspiring all


girls to be strong, smart
and bold" and fulfills its
mission of empower-
ing girls aged five and
up to be self-confident,
responsible and well-
rounded individuals
by delivering research-
based, age-appropriate,
after-school and summer
educational and sports
programs.
In the past two years,


Girls Inc. has served
2,000 girls at its facil-
ity and throughout the
Sarasota County school
system. Girls Incorpo-
rated of Sarasota County
recently celebrated 30
years of service to the
community. For more

I GOREN BRIDGE
WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

6 10 7 6 AK10 5 3 0 8 5 AJ7


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
10 Pass 20
2 Pass 3X

What do you bid now?


EAST
Pass
Pass


A That depends on your methods. If
your two-diamond response was
game forcing, your only option is to
raise to four spades. If it was only
invitational, pass you could hardly
hold less for your bidding.

Q 2 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:

SA9 8 6 5 2 K J 9 A Q 7 6

The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
16 Pass 2V Pass
9
What do you bid now?

A No, it isn't automatic to rebid
your ratty six-card spade suit when
you have such good support for
partner's major. Should you do so,
you might have a job convincing
partner your support for his suit is not
three low cards but includes two
honors. Bid three hearts.

Q 3 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

K9 A Q 7 AJ 9 6 5 K 104

What is your opening bid?

A By now you should be getting the
idea that aces and kings are slightly
undervalued by the point count and
that your hand is worth more like 18-
19 rather than 17. Open one
diamond.

Q 4 North-South vulnerable, as
South you hold:

SAKQJ 7 AK 9 AJ 9 5 7

The bidding has proceeded:


SOUTH
24
9


WEST NORTH EAST
Pass 20 34


What action do you take?

A It might seem that it is automatic
to bid three spades, but on second
thought there might be a better way
to handle your holding. Partner might
have next to nothing, or some values,
and you could find out more by
passing. Also, partner might want to
take a bite out of three clubs, so why
rob him of the chance? Pass, which is
forcing, and see what he does.

Q 5 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:

S9 5 K Q 7 A 10 5 Q 9 7 6 2

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

A If you can make anything
opposite a non-vulnerable three-
spade opening bid, check on the sort
of pre-empts your partner makes.
Pass, and don't double any contract
should the opponents enter the
auction.

Q 6 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

SQJ 7 5 106 0A 10 8 3 AK6

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

A You could bet dollars to donuts
that you can beat three spades, but
what do you want to do about it? A
double would be for takeout and
since partner is a passed hand, it is
highly unlikely you can make
anything at the three-level. Pass and
settle for a small profit.

MEZUZAH

she has learned from the
rabbis here.
"I am a student," she
said.
She will go with her
brother, whom she
described as a Reformed
Jew. They will have
a private tour guide
because they want the
flexibility to stay longer
at some places or to go
to some place they feel
compelled to visit while
there.
"My parents were Jew-
ish but never practiced,"
she said. "My grandpar-
ents in Louisville were
orthodox."
"I'm married to a
Southern Baptist for 18
years (Steve Davis)," she
said. "He manages the
body shop at Bill Buck.
He never tried to convert
me."
They do have the first
five books in the Bible in
common, for it is those
books that are inscribed

A completed mezuzah case made by Abbie Davis of Nokomis is set aside so the clay and glue can


on a Torah by Hebrew
scribes.
Deuteronomy, chapter
6, verses 4-9:
4 Hear O0 Israel: the
Lord our God, the Lord
is one.
5And thou shalt love
the Lord thy God with all


thy heart, and with all
thy soul, and with all thy
might.
6 And these words,
which I command thee
this day, shall be upon
thy heart;
7 and thou shalt teach
them diligently unto thy


children, and shalt talk of
them when thou sittest in


thy house, and when thou
walkest by the way, and
when thou liest down,
and when thou risest up.
8 And thou shalt bind
them for a sign upon
thy hand, and they shall
beforfrontlets between
thine eyes.
9 And thou shalt write
them upon the door-posts
of thy house, and upon
thy gates.

Mezuzahs are fastened
on the upper third of the
door post to the right of
the door as one enters
the house or a specific
room. If the doorpost
or doorframe is wide
enough, the mezuzah is
placed at an angle, with
the upper part slanted
toward the door open-
ing. It can be fastened
with screws, nails, glue
or even tape. Usually a
prayer is said when it

is hung, and it should
be removed when one
vacates the dwelling.
At the Jewish Food
Festival Feb. 18, there
were mezuzahs for sale
from several artists'
booths and also from the
gift shop of the Jewish
Congregation of Ven-
ice. Because they are so
commonly placed at the
entrances to all rooms
except closets and bath-
rooms, they are popular
purchases by homeown-
ers and their friends.
For all who enter those
doorways and gates, the
mezuzah is a reminder
of the goodness of God
and of a mitzvah or good
deed. Traditionally, Jews
will touch the case with
their fingertips and then
kiss their fingertips in
homage to God.

she was shy because
she wouldn't make eye

But once she smiled
back, the daily waving
and smiling were some-
thing both she and the
children looked forward
to.
As Valentine's Day
approached the chil-
dren got together to
make a valentine card
for Jolicoeur. Each
student signed the card,
which they all helped to
decorate. The bus driver
bought a violet plant.
On Valentine's Day, she
stopped the bus briefly
so the children could
present the card and
plant to Jolicoeur.
"When I told them I
loved them after receiv-

clapped," she said. "And

This group represents most of the organizations that shared $25,000 from the Women's Sertoma Club of Venice. Several more orga-
nizations received checks but representatives were not on hand to receive the checks. This money is part of the proceeds from the


proud to use. Venice Sun Fiesta.



If your parachute fails, tap dance |


FRAN VALENCIC


"Let me entertain you,"
WendyWolfe sang as she
stepped up to Dave Sayer's
piano.
The duo turned the Venice Art
Center into a fabulous cabaret.
Their songs and a little dancing
got people moving.
"If your parachute fails, tap
dance," Wolfe sang. "If you are
feeling low, tap dance. If any-
thing goes wrong, tap dance."
As she was wearing her tap


dancing shoes, the audience
was hysterical.
Later she announced you
can buy tap shoes on eBay for
$8.95.
Sayer and Wolfe are two
Venice treasures. They don't
just play, sing and dance; they
connect with the audience and
create magic.

$36,000 and counting
The annual Sun Fiesta spon-
sored by the Women's Sertoma
Club this year raised more than
$36,000. Of that, $25,000 was
distributed recently to more
than 25 local nonprofits and the
rest will go out as scholarships
in May and special projects
throughout the year.
Winter residents, plan to
return the third weekend in
October for a spectacular Sun
Fiesta Party 2012.


Flying high
This year about 20 celebrity
waiters worked and played to
raise funds for Beacon House,
the center for adults with men-
tal illness or disabling emotional
problems.
The evening's celebrities
included Bob Vedder, who looked
a little like John Travolta's "Michael"
when he stepped up with Jim
Woods to emcee the event.
The annual dinner, held at the
Plantation Golf & Country Club,
was bigger than ever.

Celebrate Gershwin
This Saturday, Judy Alexander
and Brian Gurl present a special
evening of George Gershwin's
music at the Church of the Na/ -
arene on East Venice Avenue.
Tickets are $20. Call 941-284-
2715 or 941-488-5007.


One of our best
The special person of this week
is Mary Littel, president of the
Women's Sertoma Club of Venice.
This nice lady encourages fun
and friendship among Sertoma
members, making their work
projects more like girlfriend
get-togethers.
She conducts meetings in a
casual but organized way. She
leads by example and is usu-
ally on the front lines with her
sleeves rolled up. She leads the
women in making a difference
in this community by adopting
highways and raising funds for
various organizations.
She enjoys her family. She
appreciates life and is one of

Venice is circus


town again

In 1992, the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus debuted
its annual show in Venice for the final time.
That marked the end of a 32-year stay at its winter quarters in
Venice.
Last Friday Cirque Italia debuted its new show in a $2.3-million
tent in the parking lot of the city's old Kmart. Not only is this big
news for Venice but it has turned out to be big news in the circus
world as well.The good news for Venice is that Cirque Italia has
generously offered to gift a port of this run's proceeds
toward saving the city's old circus arena.The good news
for circus fans and the circus world is the show itself which
blends elements of traditional circus with 35,000 gallons of
water and even a few jet skiers.
Cirque du Soleil's "O" in Vegas has 1 million gallons of
water and a huge cast of synchronized swimmers plus circus
performers and divers but it is a permanent installation
and more classic
water show meets circus, albeit Soleil-type circus. Cirque Italia's
"Aquatic" is the result of a two-year collaboration between circus
owner Manuel Rebecchi of the famed Italian circus family that owns
Cirque Orfei and hydraulic engineer Roberto Pirali. He created the
fountains in the center water ring, oversaw installation of
200 meters of pipe, 700 water jets and more.
The result is like no circus you have ever seen, including the
Soleil show for which tickets are nearly $200 and up per person.
Tickets for this one are $10-$35 but only until April 8, the final
day. Visit www.showaquatic.com or call the box office at
941-704-8572.

Flying high over the waves


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Something new to add to my bucket list -
jet-pack flying.
If you have seen those would-be
astronauts with hands on jet controls attached to
a jet-pack on their back, you have an idea of jet
levitation flying JetLev for short.
The TradeWinds Island Grand Resort on St.
Pete Beach offers guests the opportunity to fly
30 feet above the water along the beach for 30
minutes. With training and such, the whole thing
takes about 45 minutes and looks to be a lot of
fun at least for coaster and hang-gliding fans
like me.
Consider that when I went hang-gliding I did
so with world champion Curt Warren and when I
was on the new Cheetah Run coaster at Busch
Gardens I was strapped in so much I couldn't
even use the camera I "always" take on coasters.
JetLev flights are actually radio-controlled by
a JetLev operator whose job is the safety of the
flier.
"If you get a bit more experienced, I think you
can control it but the operator will always have
the master control,"TradeWinds spokesman Kelly
Prieto said.
While I wouldn't wear clothes suitable for the
opera, it seems that one can dress in sports
clothing such as one would for parasailing or
hang gliding.
The JetLev rides are just part of the new
things to do at the resort which also will offer a



r 4 4 ";1


motorized surf school and gyrosphere.
The JetLev rider will travel at about 30 miles
per hour. The cost is $250 for hotel guests and
$285 for others. Riders can choose to fly as high
as 30 feet above the water or to stay at water
level and "walk on the water." I think the view is
better from on high. To see a video of a typical
flight, visit www.JustLetGo.com/JetLev
The battery-powered surf boards are known
as WaveJets. An hour's rental includes a lesson
and sizes range from stand-up paddle boards to
longboards, shortboards and bodyboards. Riders
can move through the water at 8 miles per hour.
No surf needed if you are on a WaveJet.
For photographic proof that one has used
a WaveJet or JetLev the resort rents GoPro,
a small waterproof HD video camera which is
strapped to the rider's head to allow one to cap-
ture just what can be seen when soaring above
the water or riding the waves.
Stand-up paddleboards that are self-powered
by the paddlers also are for rent. All this is in
addition to last year's addition Splash Island
Water Park which is a floating playground in the
gulf. It is 60 feet from shore in the gulf.
At night, take a turn on the Gyrosphere, a
bungee trampoline. Strapped into a harness
attached to bungee cords, one can jump and spin
and even somersault above a trampoline.
Prieto said the JetLev and WaveJets will be
available in April. The new poolside TradeWinds
Adventure Center is the place to go to book any
of these offerings.

Re-Birth to perform at Surf and Song Festival


BY BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
he Port Charlotte-based band Re-Birth
is loved by its many fans, who appreciate
the band's high energy and theatrics. The
band's unusual appearance and style, however,
lead some people to misunderstand them.
'We're not anti-Christian; we're not on drugs,"
said band member Mike Lickliter. 'We are all Chris-
tians, and some of our songs have spiritual mes-
sages. But we're not a Christian rock band either"'
Lickliter describes Re-Birth's style as "groove
metal and power rock with a positive message."
Their style includes elaborate stage makeup and
lots of activity on the stage. One of their main
messages is about overcoming life's struggles
and the issues that everyone deals with to some
degree.
The band has made two videos. The first,
which they made in October, 2010, is titled
"Twisted Dreams,' and refers to things that can
happen when you mistreat your body. All of the
band members die from different causes in the
video. The second was made in October, 2011,
and is titled "Lost."The band members are all in



Broadway's biggest

the Barbara B, Mani

PERFORMING ARTS HALL
after breaking box office records and sell-
ing out in record time in 2009, 'Wicked,"
Broadway's biggest blockbuster, will return
to Fort Myers at the Barbara B. Mann Performing
Arts Hall, today through April 15. The Fort Myers
return engagement is part of the Fifth Third Bank
Broadway Series.
Based on the best-selling 1995 novel by
Gregory Maguire, "Wicked," winner of 35 major
awards, including a Grammy and three Tony
Awards, is the untold story of the witches of
Oz. It is produced by Marc Platt, Universal
Pictures, The Araca Group, Jon B. Platt and
David Stone.
"In my opinion, the national tour is even
better than the Broadway production, which I
also loved. The producers of 'Wicked' should
be complimented for sending out such a
high-quality show," said Scott Saxon general
manager of the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts
Hall.'We are thrilled to have this tour of Wicked'
return to where it started"'
Long before Dorothy drops in, two other
girls meet in the Land of Oz. One born with
emerald-green skin is smart, fiery and misun-
derstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and
very popular. "Wicked" tells the story of their
remarkable odyssey, and how these two unlikely
friends grow to become the Wicked Witch of the
West and Glinda the Good.


cages or strait jackets at some point in the video.
Its message is about overcoming addictions and
finding yourself on the other, positive side.
"By addictions, we don't mean drugs neces-
sarily, though some people have that addiction,"
said Lickliter. "But it could also be a musician's
obsession to buying too many guitars, or anything
else someone does to excess that negatively
affects them."
Both videos were filmed at the Harborview
Haunted House, which had props and backdrops
hat were ideal for the videos' themes.
Dan Bucci originally founded the band with
his brother and brother-in-law, but both moved
out of the area. The current band members
have been together since 2007. Bucci plays
bass, Lickliter plays guitar, James Rizzo plays
drums and all three sing vocals. Paul Keith is
their lead singer.
Re-Birth plays events and venues from Tampa
to Immokalee, including Rocktoberfest, the
Charlotte County Fair, and road shows opening
for well known bands. They've also won several
Battles of the Bands. Last winter the band won a
Battle of the Bands in Immokalee, and the prize

drummer for the group Iron Maiden, at the Iron
Maiden Fan Club Party in Fort Lauderdale.
The band will soon release a CD, "Re-Birth
Rising,' which has been two years in the making
and includes 11 songs. All of the band members
help write their songs. "Sometimes one person
will come in with a song, and another one will add
a verse to it or have a suggestion. It's usually a
collaboration," explained Lickliter. "A band is a re-
lationship. You don't always agree on everything,
but you work together and make decisions."

Paradise ready for Pedal and Play riders


BY GORDON BOWER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
More than 360 cyclists filled the streets
of Punta Gorda during last year's Pedal
and Play in Paradise ride, and that num-
ber is likely to be surpassed at this year's event
Saturday in Laishley Park.
The reason is simple. What's not to like about a
well-organized and safe ride offering a variety of
distances, excellent food, free beer, a free T-shirt
and an attractive waterfront venue in a city called
paradise by residents and visitors alike?
Nancy Prafke, CEO of TEAM Punta Gorda,
which co-hosts the event with the Isles Yacht
Club, said, "Last year's ride went off exactly the
way we wanted; participants had such a good
time. They enjoyed the whole day, no matter
which ride they were on. We try to make sure
everyone has a first-class experience every year
because we want them to love it and keep com-
ing back."
The organizing committee has an ambitious
goal of 500 to 600 riders this year, and publicity
chair Ben Graham said the numbers look encour-
aging. In early March, he reported, "Registration
numbers are already looking pretty good. Last
year, we had 79 at this time, and we have 137

this year."
Riders can choose 62-, 39- or 15-mile rides
or a 10-mile mystery tour, all departing at 9 a.m.
after registration and breakfast, or the popular
city manager's history tour, leaving at 1 p.m. for a
trip around the city. Registration is from 7 a.m. to
2 p.m. at the pavilions next to the Laishley Marina
docks. Helmets are required.


The four longer rides are $40 and the city
manager ride $20 with no food provided.
You can register at www.pedalandplayinpara-
dise.com.
A breakfast of bagels, danish, muffins and fruit
will be available from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. Lunch of
pasta and barbecue chicken provided by Jack's
restaurant will be served from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

organized and fast.

See the 'van' for a chance to win a car


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
The potential pay-off for attending Venice
Theatre in April is big.
Someone who attends the theater's
world premiere production of "Stand ByYour Van"
could drive home in a new a 2012 Scion iQ the
last night of the production. At each performance
one person will be selected to attend the final
show on April 22. After the final performance
those people will go up on stage to stand by
the "van" while ticket numbers are drawn. As their
number is drawn they leave the stage. The last one
standing will win a new smart car courtesy of show
sponsors Cramer Toyota of Venice and in memory
of Andy Lowry, a longtime theater volunteer. Cramer
also donated the use of a new Toyota truck to serve
as the onstage "van" in the play.
Developed especially for Venice Theatre by
British playwrights Paul Bourne and Craig Baxter,
"Stand By Your Van" is a comedy entirely rewritten
for the American audience from an earlier work
that was presented at the Edinburgh Fringe Fes-
tival. Bourne was a judge at the 2010 American
Association of Community Theatre's International
Festival, which was held at Venice Theatre in
June of that year. He returned to Venice with
Baxter last fall to audition players and glean
character ideas for the story about a group of
people vying to be the last one with his hand
on the van. That person wins the van but the
process is what drives the play. Some realize
early on that they cannot make it through to
the end. Others might resort to trickery to
cause someone to take his hand off the van.
Some experience mood swings and personal-
ity changes because of sleep deprivation

and other aspects of such a marathon.
"Stand By Your Van is a play based on an
American idea; a "touch-the-truck" competition
where the last man (or woman) standing wins
the truck," Bourne said. "It becomes a game of
chess.
"Some give up quite early but once past 40
hours, you don't want to have wasted your time."
Venice Theatre's executive/artistic director
Murray Chase has worked closely with Bourne
since the international festival on the process of
presenting this world premier at Venice Theatre.
His wife Lori Chase, as the assistant director of
the play, also has been closely involved in the
show from its inception, including the audition
process during which some of the characters
were suggested by the actors themselves.
Bennett Gross, who writes a regular religion
column for the Venice Gondolier Sun, is
one who created his part during the audition
process. Bourne liked the idea, worked it into the
story and cast Gross to play the part. Gross por-
trays an elderly man who wants to win because
it would be the only legacy he could leave his
grandchildren.
Other characters include a single mother
(Heather O'Dea), a far-right Christian (Kay
Crosby) who wants to win the van for Jesus, a
pregnant student (Kenzie Balliet), an ex-marine
(Ron Myroup) and an elderly lady (Lynne Buhle)
who thought the contest might be fun. Daniel
Greene is the truck dealer in the play.
That there are four different endings and a new
car to win might inspire some patrons to attend
more than one performance, Chase said.
"Stand ByYour Van" opens Tuesday and con-
tinues through April 22.Tickets are $12-$15 for


students and $24-$27 for adults. Performances
are Tuesday through Saturday at 8 p.m. and
each Sunday at 2 p.m. at Venice Theatre, 140 W.

Cirque Aquatic makes U.S. debut in Venice


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Despite the drought, it is raining in Venice -
inside a circus tent.
No ordinary tent, this one was built
in Venice, Italy at a cost of $2.3 million for the
debut of a stunning new water-themed circus
that, unlike Cirque du Soleil's "0" in Las Vegas,
will travel.
The concept for the unique new show grew out
of a collaboration between hydraulic technician
Roberto Pirali and Manuel Rebecchi, president
and owner of the new Cirque Italia. Rebecchi grew
up in the family of the most famous circus in Italy,
Cirque Orfei. An entrepreneur, he owns three
other international businesses but his passion is
circus. Late last year, as the two men worked on
their project to find a hydrogen system to save
fuel and reduce automobile emissions, they came
up with the idea for a new circus that could move
from city to city. A tent with a specially designed
hydraulic system was their answer to making such
a concept feasible.
The tent was built in January of this year, as
was the water system. Then it was loaded into a
container and shipped across the Atlantic.There
was a seven-day delay at U.S. Customs because
of a yellow bag discovered by x-ray It was not
listed on the manifest. When Customs was finally
convinced that it was simply padding for the metal
that supports the tent and carries the water sys-
tem, the tent finally was trucked to Venice.
The blue and white tent and its matching
concession tent were erected in the parking lot
of the old Kmart just north of the intersection of
Shamrock Boulevard and U. S. 41 in Venice. Flags
of the United States and Italy fly from the top of


the larger tent. Last week, the hydraulic systems
were installed and the first tests made even as the
acts rehearsed.
Thursday's dress rehearsal was literally the
new show's first run-through.
The show began outside the tent where a
human cannon ball performed about 20 minutes
before showtime, landing safely in what appeared
to be a short but wide jumphouse. Whew!
Inside the 1,244-seat tent, there was some
more pre-show fun when clown Joel Jeske ap-
peared and interacted with the crowd there for this
debut show.
Cast members were in their sequins and silks
and technicians were in their places to handle all
the things that make this show unique. Fog poured
forth from the stage and colored lights were
turned in all directions and the show began with
dancing girls and a parade of the performers. The
singing hostess was dressed in cream-colored
satin and sang in Italian the wonderful new music
composed especially for this show. Later this
same lady would appear in another outfit more
appropriate to walking the high wire at the top
of the tent while singing. She and her partner
perform a most amazing act which a finish you
have to see to believe.
Also in the show is Khongorzul, a Mongolian
contortionist; Olga Manzhula from Kazakhstan,
who performs high overhead on a trapeze ring;
hand balancers Adam Vazquez and Anton
Makhuin; and a fascinating Risley act featur-
ing George Coronas Jr. and Miles Ashton.
Risley acts most often feature father and son
or brothers because of the trust factor as much
as for what they do. Risley acts feature one
person on his back using his feet to "toss" his

SUN CORRESPONDENT


Englewoods on Dearborn offers great
food, nightly entertainment, and a tropical
courtyard under the stars. It's easy to see
why this popular spot was voted the Englewood

Will Miller, of Mill Jenn Entertainment,
sound technician and master of ceremonies, is
responsible for bringing nationally known blues
entertainment all year round to Englewoods on
Dearborn from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. every Thursday.
The Blues Under the Stars Concert Series is
less than a year old, but owners Merrill and Anton
(Tony) Hollinger couldn't be more pleased with
the results. Thursday used to be slow,"Tony
explained. "In May of last year, Will recommended
that we try booking blues groups on Thursdays,
and by November, business went crazy'"The
popular series attracts Canadian visitors, part-
time residents, and blues lovers who drive from
the Miami/Fort Lauderdale area to Englewood
just to hear their favorite acts. Recently, nine fans
from Michigan flew in to hear Michigan artist,
"Mike Zito"'
Miller met the Hollingers when he was a
drummer with High Tide, a band from Fort Myers.
After leaving the band and forming his company,
Mill Jenn Entertainment, Miller began booking a
variety of musical groups for restaurants in the
Englewood area.
"My goal," Miller said, "is to make Englewood
stand out. We are planning a huge one-year anni-

Englewood Fine Art Festival is this weekend


PROVIDED BYTHE ROTARY CLUB OF ENGLEWOOD

Englewood's 31st Annual Fine Arts Festival,
sponsored by the Rotary Club of Engle-
wood, will be held from 10 a.m. to
4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday on Dearborn Street
in downtown Englewood.
Sculptors and multi-media artists will
showcase work alongside each other to create
a diverse and exceptional range of special art
work and gifts. Visitors are sure to find unique
souvenirs, artwork and plenty of home d6cor.
The juried art show features original works
by over 120 artists from all over the country


and Canada. The artists will display their work in
a variety of media including sculpture, painting,
jewelry, ceramics, and photography.
The participants this year include some artists
that have been with the event every year, as well
as many first time exhibitors.
The featured artist this year is, award-winning,
Fran Fink. Originally from Michigan, Fink now
resides in Englewood full-time, except when
traveling to other art shows.
Although Fink did not start her oil painting
career until the age of 30, and did not start paint-
ing in watercolors until 15 years ago, she has
certainly made up for lost time.

Grandma Lee returns to Port Charlotte


PROVIDED BY VISANI

Grandma Lee will be performing at Visani
Wednesday through Saturday.
Lee has been a comedy jewel at Visani
since 2006. Thanks to the highly rated NBC show
"America's Got Talent," Lee is now a household
name.
She may remind you of your grandma, or
maybe you wish your grandma were more like


her. Either way Lee will tell it like it is. She'll teach
you how to handle phone solicitations. She'll be
fresh, occasionally nasty and always funny.
Although Grandma Lee is now 77, she still
continues to travel the USA working full time
enjoying her dream. With all of the comedy clubs
now willing to hire her, she wanted to come back
to Port Charlotte. She loves our town and the
caramel flan at Visani.
Here is your chance to see the sweet little


grandma with a potty mouth.
Tickets for the Wednesday and Thursday show
are $12, show time is at 8 p.m. On Friday, tickets
cost $18; show time is at 8:30 p.m. On Saturday

Passion For Power to present rock opera via live Internet stream


PROVIDED BY RON FLATOW

Seat of the Illuminati" is a rock opera that
will be performed by Passion for Power, an
Original rock band based out of North Port.
The world premier will take place at the Canopy
Club in Urbana, IIl. on Thursday and be broadcast
live via the Internet at 10 p.m.
Fans will have the option to be part of the world
premier experience by streaming the show live on
their computer or InternetTV through iClips.net.
Streaming access through iClips.net is $5.
The concept of "Death of the Illuminati" is
based on the Illuminati conspiracy theory.
Governments, religious organizations, huge
corporations, and secret societies...they all
add up to the same thing: Power and control over
all people by keeping them confused and in fear.
"Death of the Illuminati" is about standing up
to the Illuminati and regaining control of what's
rightfully ours.
This 90-minute live in concert event is a multi-
media extravaganza, featuring a seven-piece
band, full video and 17 original songs.


Passion for Power's songs were created into a
well laid out story line that is steeped in extreme
controversy in many ways, yet has a humorous
satire due to the narration of King Balzak's before
each song.
All songs for the videos were written and
composed by Tom Lapp, the band's founder who
also provided the narratives on the song tracks
and is one of two keyboard players in the band as
well as main vocals.
Other members include Enrique "Hank"
Hinojosa on organ and keyboard, Jim Kiefer on
bass guitar, Bill Zink on lead guitar and Donny
Vosburgh on drums along with two female
backup singers Linda Murray and Sibylle
Baumgartner.
This rock opera is theatrical due to the number
of costume changes that accompany specific
songs throughout the concert. The performance
also incorporates a technetronic lighting display
and videos for the storyline that shock your
senses with thought provoking ideology and
satire ranging from aliens, secret societies to
military, political, corporate and religious figure


heads all bent on creating a one world govern-
ment out of fear and illusionary freedom.
For more information on the rock opera or
live stream, visit www.deathoftheilluminati.com,

The Heart and Soul of Phil's 41


*


holidays. You can eat your meal while enjoying the drinks deal in
the relaxing lounge, too. "Sometimes there's a line just to get in the
lounge," said Cerciello.
The secret to the restaurant's success lies in Cerciello's 35
years of experience. Born in Italy, he moved to New Jersey at 13
and, at 14, started his first job in a restaurant. After college, he
worked in business management for three years, but realized it
wasn't for him. "I'm a people person," said Cerciello. "When
customers thank me for a great meal and a wonderful experience,
it means everything to me."
Visit Phil's 41 at 1975 Tamiami Trail in Punta Gorda seven days of
the week, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., and until 10 p.m. Friday and
Saturday. For reservations or information call 941-575-7575.


By: Barbara Bean-Mellinger
Let's Go Correspondent
Before you even begin to wind your way through
Punta Gorda to Phil's 41, you know two things about the
restaurant. The first is its convenient location amidst the car
dealerships on Tamiami Trail. The second is that the
restaurant has a heart and soul behind it, in the name of Phil
Cerciello.
"People are often surprised that there really is a Phil,"
laughed Cerciello. The restaurant is such a huge part of his
life, and he is such a vital part of the restaurant, that he can't
imagine it any other way.
Phil's 41 is Cerciello's eighth restaurant. He took over
ownership in May of 2009, renamed it and immediately began
to put his signature on its style and menu.
From the start, Cerciello wanted his restaurant to
have a versatile menu with something for everyone.
"When people talk about going out to eat, they say, what kind
of food are you in the mood for?" he explained. "Someone
says Italian. But someone else in their group says, no, I want
ribs. So I wanted Phil's 41 to be the place they can come to
and everyone can get the kind of food they want."
One glance at the menu reveals its versatility. At Phil's
41, you'll find everything from steaks and ribs to crab cakes -
proclaimed to be the best outside of Maryland's eastern shore
award-winning wings and, oh yes, Italian food.
Spaghetti with meatballs or sausage, eggplant, veal or
chicken parmigiana, stuffed shells, lasagna, fettuccini alfredo,
pizza and pastas from ravioli to gnocchi reward those who
crave traditional Italian favorites. Chicken and veal are
offered in everyone's favorite Italian sauce, whether it's
piccata, marsala, francese, or Florentine.
Cerciello also filled out his menu with dishes you
don't often find at typical Italian restaurants, or many
restaurants at all for that matter down-home comfort food.
Country fried steak? Liver and onions? Open-faced hot turkey
or roast beef with mashed potatoes and gravy? Just what kind
of Italian restaurant is this?
It's the kind of restaurant where the proprietor wants
you to feel at home, to feel the comfort. He often greets you
personally, and talks to you at your table, with a sincerity that
lets you know it isn't just for show.
"I want people to have the experience they deserve," he
explains. "I want them to get the most for their money. That's
why I keep the prices at a level that families can afford."
Yet, you still get the generous portions that Cerciello
believes customers deserve as well. "If anything, people tell
me there's too much food," he said.
Getting the most for your dollar extends to beverages
too. Phil's 41 offers 2-for-1 drinks until 6 p.m. in the
restaurant, and all day every day in Phil's Lounge, excluding


77!

Jimmy
BY BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
At Jimmy's Grill Restaurant in Port Char-
lotte, you can get nostalgic comfort food
like hot beef or turkey sandwich with
mashed potatoes, grilled cheese sandwiches,
liver and onions, grouper, snapper stuffed with
crab, chicken cordon bleu, NewYork strip steak or
baked pastas.
Prices are nostalgic too. A "mama bear"
(i.e. medium sized) serving of biscuits and
gravy, which customers say are the best
anywhere, is $4.50. Two eggs with bacon or
sausage is $4.99. A lunch portion of chicken
Florentine or marsala is $5.99. Dinner entrees,
such as roast pork with stuffing, spaghetti with
meatballs and the liver and onions that one
customer described as the best she's ever tasted
are $7.99.
Owner Jimmy Psicharis opened the restaurant
in 1985 after moving to the area from Chicago,
where he also had a restaurant. "Everything is
homemade, with fresh ingredients'," said Jimmy.
"We make our own sauces too." A favorite sauce
is called Touch of Class, orTOC on the menu. It's
made with fresh tomatoes, green peppers, onions
and mushrooms.
Today, Jimmy's son, Crosto, is the restaurant's
chef. "My parents opened the restaurant when I
was five,' said Crosto. "By the time I was eight I
was working in the restaurant, first bussing tables
and then helping out in the kitchen. I loved it, and


's G rill
I knew this was what I wanted to do."
Crosto studied at the Charlotte Tech Center for
about a year, then at Johnson and Wales
in Miami for two years.
"The teachers at Charlotte Tech really en-
couraged me to go to Johnson and Wales, and
I'm glad I did," said Crosto.
He credits their excellent kitchen staff for
enabling the restaurant to keep up with their
extensive and widely diverse menu.
Along with the variety that offers
something for everyone, Jimmy's has
mouthwatering, unusual dishes too, like
combo omelets such as the gyro and spinach;
and pancakes or French toast stuffed with
strawberries or blueberries. The bourbon
pecan chicken pecan-encrusted chicken
breast saut6ed in bourbon cream sauce is a
customer favorite for dinner.
Spinach pie made with fresh spinach and
cheese is a favorite all day. For breakfast,
the western omelette and eggs Benedict reign
supreme.
The restaurant has a friendly, relaxed feel,
with several flat screen TVs to watch and a spa-
cious, open feel.
Jimmy's is open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday
through Sunday. Breakfast begins at 7 a.m., lunch
at 11 a.m., and dinner at 3 p.m.
Jimmy's Grill is located at 2665 Tamiami Trail in
Port Charlotte. For more information, call
941-627-5156.

Live and learn at The Open Studio


BY CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The Open Studio is a member-based,
not-for-profit organization that provides "a
forum for learning and teaching, an incuba-
tor for artists and entrepreneurs."
At 3 p.m. every second Saturday of the month,
the public is invited to meet artists and instructors
at the Open Studio located on Old Englewood
Road in Englewood. The event is free and open
to people of all ages and abilities that wish
to learn more about maintaining good health
and well-being. Visitors will be surprised and
impressed when they discover the "openness" of
The Open Studio, three separate buildings that
surround a huge organic garden.
Founders Greg Dales and Evelyn Dow greet
visitors at the monthly open house and provide
them with the opportunity to tour the campus,
meet instructors and sign up for classes in yoga,
tai chi, massage therapy, art, edible arts, weav-
ing, pottery, gardening, vegan lifestyle, sustain-
ability and healthy living. Visitors are invited to
enjoy art demonstrations, purchase plants, or
gather organic greens at $3 a bag. The free trade
market offers the public an opportunity to trade or
swap items at no cost.
After 5 p.m. at the open house, the fun be-
gins and the music starts. Area musicians are
encouraged to bring instruments and jam with
the group around a blazing fire-pit. Eventu-
ally, the aroma of soup infused with immune


boosting herbs or another equally as healthy
dish may tempt visitors to join the group for their
monthly potluck supper.
Those unable to attend the open house may
call 941-681-2782 or learn about special and
ongoing classes/workshops online at
www.theopenstudio.org. A course list is posted
at the Open Studio's Visual Arts Office located
in Englewood's Arts Overlay District at 380 Old
Englewood Road.
At 9 a.m. on Thursday, Linda Nelson will teach
"Lazy Man/Woman Composting." From May
18-20, a course, Myofascial Release, led by LMT
Beverly Katchen, will be offered. TOS Director/
Board Secretary, Jennifer Mallory, announced
that a summer camp session is being planned for
children aged 8 and up.
Ongoing classes and workshops include:
Monday: garden time, open pottery, begin-
ner Djembe hand drumming, kundalini yoga,
organic sculpture; Tuesday: pottery classes, step
yoga, pottery workshop; Wednesday: botanical
medicine, gong meditation, cancer support group;
Thursday: organic gardening, kundalini yoga,
tai chi, Yin yoga, contemporary fresco painting.
Friday: sew with Sue and Saturday: open pottery,
basic yoga, create an earth mandela, organic
sculpture. Instructors and class times are listed
online or posted at The Open Studio.
Volunteers are always welcome, according
to Open Studio office staff volunteer, Carolyn
Moore. Volunteers write grants, distribute flyers,


paint, clean, garden and raise funds.
According to Carolyn Moore, "The Open Studio
captures what Englewood is, a communication
hub around a concept."

Chef Chris Dina: La Rocca Italian Ristorante


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
While growing up in Romania, Chef
Chris Dina did not give a whole lot of
thought to becoming a chef. Living in
a Communist country, there were other concerns
for a young man besides learning to cook. For
Chef Dina, all that changed after the Romanian
Revolution of 1989.
"I left Romania immediately after the Revolu-
tion," he said. "Then I began to work in res-
taurants-mostly in Germany and Italy."The
establishments he worked in were upscale Italian
eateries, and he would later work for the same
types of restaurants in Holland and Austria, too.
While still in Europe, he became a chef and a
pastry chef. Back in Romania, he had met his wife
Nicole, and while in Europe together, they de-
cided to come to America. "I came here in March
of 1996," said Chef Dina. "I was very motivated
and excited to move on-I had decided to build
my future somewhere else.
The Dinas worked for restaurants in the Miami
area for a few years, gaining knowledge of both the
American restaurant industry and American culture.
"I already had a lot of experience in the restaurant
business and I was looking for some kind of invest-
ment" said Chef Dina."I wanted to open a business"'
By 2007, the couple had landed on the west
coast of Florida and in June, bought La Rocca
Ristorante in North Port. La Rocca serves authen-
tic Italian cuisine in a casual dining atmosphere,
and is a perfect place to come with the family or
to have an intimate dining experience.
The restaurant is probably best known for its
delicious entrees, like Rack of Lamb, Calamari
Salad and Cedar Plank Salmon. But the home-
made desserts are something not to be missed.

Osteoporosis drugs tilt the

scales in favor of treatment


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I had my first DEXA scan
for osteoporosis in 2006.
It indicated osteopenia.
Just last month, I had a
second scan that now
indicates osteoporosis.
The nurse practitioner
suggested the following
options: 1) estrogen/pro-
gesterone replacement;
2) Fosamax; 3) Evista; 4)
DHEA (male hormone).
My general practitioner
suggests Fosamax. My
concern with all four are
side effects and that Fosa-
max disrupts the normal
function of the body by
inhibiting osteoclasts. I
would appreciate your
insight. K.C.
ANSWER: The side
effects of osteoporosis
drugs are not comparable
to the trouble that this ill-
ness can cause broken
hips, squashed back-
bones and breaks of other
bones. Treatment with a
medicine wins out.
The most popular
osteoporosis drugs
are members of the
family called bisphos-
phonates. They are
Fosamax (alendronate),
Actonel (risedronate),
Boniva (ibandronate)
and Reclast (zoledronic
acid). These medicines
are taken daily, weekly,
monthly, every three
months or once a year
(Reclast). A feared com-
plication of bisphos-
phonates is death of a
section of the jawbone
(osteonecrosis). It's a
very rare event in the
treatment of osteopo-
rosis. It happens more
for treatment of cancer
that has spread to bone
when these drugs are
used in high doses. An-
other possible compli-
cation is a break in the
thigh bone, lower down
from the break that os-
teoporosis causes. This,
too, is a rare event. This
mostly happens when
the drugs are used for
longer than five years.
It's true that these med-
icines interfere with the
bone-breakdown cells,
osteoclasts. That's a
good thing. The osteo-
clasts' activity is greater
than the bone-building
activity of osteoblasts.
Osteoblasts become
laggards after meno-
pause.
Evista is a hormone-
like medicine that has no
hand in causing breast
or uterine cancer. It can
lead to vein clots and the
possibility of stroke. That
is exceedingly rare.
I don't think most doc-
tors would recommend
estrogen because of the
oon

breast cancer threat. DHEA
is another not heartily rec-
ommended treatment.
You have other options.
Prolia is a new drug that
slows down bone resorp-
tion. Forteo, given by
self-injection, enhances
the incorporation of cal-
cium into bones. Some
lab rats given high doses
developed bone cancer.
I know of no humans
who have suffered that
complication.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I am a 63-year-old female
who smokes. Will you
give me your opinion of
these results: red blood
cell count, 5.15 million;
hemoglobin, 16; hemato-
crit, 47.3. All are marked
as being high. Anon.
ANSWER: Red blood
cell count is the num-
ber of red cells in one
microliter of blood, a
tiny amount. Normal for
women is 3.8 million to
5.1 million. Your count is
slightly elevated. Hemo-
globin is the large protein
in red blood cells that
grabs hold of oxygen as
the cells pass through the
lungs. Normal female value
is 12 to 16 grams/dL. You're
at the top of normal. He-
matocrit is the percent of
blood volume occupied
by red blood cells. The
normal female num-
bers are 35 percent to 45
percent. You're slightly on
the high side. Hematocrit
and hemoglobin are other
ways of measuring the
red blood cell population.
None of these values is
far off. The rise is most
likely due to your ciga-
rette smoking. Cigarette
smoke makes the bone
marrow, the site of blood
cell production, be-
lieve you have too little
oxygen in your blood. It,
therefore, makes more
red blood cells to
compensate for the
perceived deficiency.
Dr Donohue regrets that
he is unable to answer
individual letters, but he
will incorporate them
in his column whenever
possil,' Readers may

order form of available

The spread between jams and jellies


Dear Readers: Jellies,
jams, preserves, fruit but-
ters what is the differ-
ence? It can be confusing,
so here are a few "sweet"
hints to help you buy the
one that's right for you:
Jellies are made from
fruit juice, and when
cooked, they ... well, gel.
Jam is made from
crushed, pureed fruit. It usu-
ally is a bit thicker than jelly.
Preserves can contain
large chunks of fruit or
whole fruit. This makes
them thicker and more filled
with fruit than jelly or jam.
Fruit butter is made
when fruit pulp and sugar
are cooked together. It usu-
ally is smooth, but there is
NO butter in fruit butter!
Most have added sugar,
so if you need to watch
calories or sugar intake,
be aware and look for
sugar-free options, which
are more readily available
today! Heloise

Healthier soup
Dear Heloise: I store
canned soup (not the
creamed variety) in the
refrigerator. When ready
to use it, I carefully open
the can and remove the
congealed fat that forms on
the top. That makes it much
healthier. PR., via email

Heloise's
hot-cocoa mix
Dear Heloise: I cannot
find your delicious cocoa
mix made with dry milk.
Please reprint it.
- Shirley, via email


Hints from Heloise

Here is the recipe for
Heloise's Hot Cocoa Mix.
It's easy and cheap to
make! Save money and
enjoy some hot cocoa.
Gather the following
ingredients:
2 cups of powdered
milk
A dash of salt
1/4 cup of cocoa
1 cup of powdered
(confectioners') sugar
Mix all the ingredients
together. Place around 4
tablespoons into a cup
or mug. Fill with ap-
proximately 8 ounces of
boiling water and stir. You
can add more or less mix,
depending on your taste.
Store in a sealed
container. And another
hint: It makes a great gift
when given in a decorated
container with the in-
structions printed on the
outside. Heloise

Easier egg removal
Dear Heloise: To keep
eggs from breaking when
making hard-boiled eggs,
I use a pasta server to
place the eggs in and
remove them from sim-
mering water. Joan in
Guntersville, Ala.

with those yucky sprouts?


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


I HOROSCOPE I
ARIES (March 21-April 19).You'll be brilliant at
calming yourself down so that you can take on po-
tentiallystressful challenges.You'll take controlled
action instead of reacting from anxiety.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Grudges don't harm
anyone except the person who holds them. You'll
let a grievance go for this reason, and also because
there are too many far more pleasant things on
which to focus.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Just as furry animals


something may happen to make your"fur"stand
on end momentarily. Another person will find it
reassuring to know that you care.
CANCER (June 22-July 22).You know what you're
good at. You'll apply yourself in your area of exper-
tise and easily accomplish what others cannot do
but by the uttermost exertion of their abilities.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).The journey is long, and what
happens today is not a solid indicator of all that will
happen.There will come a day when the forces that
once seemed to keep you out ofa certain "club"will


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).What makes today fun
is that you'll be in just the kind of mood to throw
yourself into situations, mix things up and see what
happens. If you make a mistake, you'll soon recover.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). By the end of the day,
you may feel that the better part of your energy has
been poured into one rather frivolous endeavor that
somehow still seems worthwhile.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). By late morning, you'll
feel ready to take on the world.You're likely to get
caught in the middle of a conflict. Responding well


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have a serious
responsibility to yourself. Love and care for yourself
as though you were one of the most important
people in the whole world.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.19). If your resources
were cards, you would play them as though you'd
been dealt the best hand in the history of the game.
From that perspective, you'll see many options.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).You'll be wondering
whom you can trust. Don't waste time with those
who inspire doubt in you. Put the people who


to the situation at hand takes a high level of energy. always take your call on the top of your list.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).You feel that you could
be more effective if you maximized a certain rela-
tionship or grew it into something strong. Improved
communication will begin the process.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 28). You will diversify
this year, letting go of the known route in favorof
adventure. A fresh assignment brings success in a
short amount of time. In June, you'll enjoy improved
behavior from those who are accountable to you in
some way. A loving partner spurs you to personal
heights in August. Capricorn and Libra people adore
you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 40, 2,12 and 30.

Opening lead: Ace of0

This deal is from the finals of last
year's Wagar Women's Teams, held
in Toronto. Could the final contract
have been defeated? If so, who was at
fault?


North's four diamonds was a
splinter bid, showing good trump
support and a singleton in the bid
suit. East-West did well to push the
contract to an uncomfortable level.
West led the ace of diamonds,
ruffed by declarer. Two rounds of
trumps were drawn, ending in
dummy, and a club was led to the
queen. Declarer returned to the table
with a trump and reverted to clubs,
East winning with the ace. A low
heart went to the eight and ace.
Declarer cleared clubs ending in
dummy and led a heart. In with the
queen, East conceded a ruff-sluff and
declarer's remaining heart loser
vanished making five-odd. Could
it have been different?
Yes! When East first led a heart,
she had to lead the queen. Now there
is no way to prevent the defenders
from collecting two heart tricks for
down one!
