Jazz concerts survive


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

It didn't take long for
Venice City Council to
shoot down a proposal by
Venice MainStreet to end
free afternoon concerts in
Centennial Park.
The proposal, intended
to ease downtown park-
ing congestion for local
merchants, received a
thumbs-up from the plan-
ning department but didn't


make it past council's
consent agenda meeting
Monday.
"It wasn't vetted prop-
erly," said Mayor John
Holic. "We should have
never seen that."
"Some (council mem-
bers) were uncomfortable
with portions of the pro-
posal where we could not
vote for it."
Instead, council will con-
sider the issue at an April 30
workshop on parking.


Council members were
also uncomfortable with
another part of the pro-
posal granting Main-
Street control over the per-
mitting process for events
in the park at the popular
gazebo.
The move was intended
to save the planning
department from process-
ing more than 75 special-
event requests annually.

STAFF REPORT

AVenice physical therapy
clinic, Rehab Dynamics Inc.,
1531 South Tamiami Trail, Unit
702B, off Center Road, is one
of three that federal authorities
are saying fraudulently billed
Medicare.
U.S. Attorney Robert E.
O'Neill unsealed a 30-count
indictment Tuesday charging
Luis Duluc, 51, formerly of
Weston, and Margarita Grish-
koff, 57, from Charlotte, N.C.,
with conspiracy to commit
healthcare fraud, making false
statements and aggravated
identity theft.
According to a press release,
the indictment also noti-
fies Duluc and Grishkoff that
the United States is seeking
a money judgment in the
amount of $8,152,262.14,
which constitutes the proceeds
of their alleged conspiracy.
According to the indict-
ment, between June 2005
and April 2008, Duluc and
Grishkoff utilized multiple

CLINIC 19


Reed, Phillips say goodbye


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Two prominent public safety
officials retired from city
service this week part of
a wave of retirements antici-
pated due to changes in the
city's benefits program.
John Reed, with the city
fire department for 20 years
and Venice fire chief since
2006, and Marine Officer Phil
Phillips, who spent his entire
34-year career in Venice with
the Venice Police Department,
were honored Tuesday in a
special retirement tribute.
Reed thanked his wife, Kelli,
for her support and his par-
ents for his work ethic.
He joined the city fire
department in 1991 and was
promoted through the ranks.
"Outstanding leadership,
dedication and trustworthi-
ness are a few of John's many
special attributes," said Mayor
John Holic. "John has earned
the respect and trust of his
department, city employees,
fellow fire service members
and the Venice community as
a whole."
Under Reed's guidance the
department ungraded equip-
ment on an ongoing basis. He
was project manager when
the city built Fire Station No.
3 on Laurel Road, outfitting
the facility with an emergency
communications center and
community room. He secured
more than $360,000 in grants
for equipment, marine rescue
items and hazardous materials
and brokered a deal to sell the

station's older aerial truck for
$200,000.
He developed the city emer-
gency action plans, and was
proud the Venice Fire Depart-
ment offered free child car
seat installation by appoint-
ment one of the only enti-
ties in the Sarasota County
area to do so.
When budget cuts were
required last year, Reed took
on the fire prevention ser-
vices workload himself to
preserve emergency response
positions.


Phillips joined the city in
1978 as an auxiliary officer
and in 1988 went to work in
the purchasing department
as a buyer. In 1991 the Venice
Police Department hired Phil-
lips as a recruit, and he went
on to be elected the academy
president, graduating at the
top of his class.
He saved the city thousands
of dollars by installing radio,
lights, computers, gun racks,
and cages in more than 40

GOODBYE 19 Venice Fire Chief John Reed


Tech to put high school students in OR


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

For the first time, Venice High
School Medical Academy students
have the opportunity to observe an
operation a partial gastrectomy
- and interact with the surgical
team, all without leaving school.
Thanks to video-conferencing
technology, high-speed Internet
and Sarasota Memorial Hospital's
integrated operating room cameras
and imaging systems, between 100
and 150 Sarasota students will take
a "virtual field trip" to experience
the surgery as if they were in the
operating room.
A collaborative education


project with Sarasota County
Public Schools and the Sarasota
Memorial Health Care System will
stream the audio and video into a
meeting room, similar to a small
theater.
"Watching what is happening
in the operating room on a large
white Activboard, they will interact
with questions and comments,"
said Kim Savage of Sarasota
Memorial media relations. "The
surgery will take about two to two
and a half hours, with some stu-
dents staying for the entire event,
while others leave to take a test or
attend an important class, then
return as soon as they can."
Students will view the entire


surgery from the multiple cameras
and angles inside the operating
room, even peering inside the
patient's body with surgical cam-
eras utilized by Sarasota Memo-
rial's daVinci-S Surgical System.
General surgeon John Nora, M.D.,
will narrate key steps as he uses
miniature surgical tools remotely
controlled to remove a cancerous
lesion from a patient's stomach by
minimally invasive robotic surgery.
Participating ninth- tol2th-grade
VHS students have been studying
human body systems with a series
of lessons on health and anatomy
from teacher Carole Lash, director

County votes to recommend brownfield project


By CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

Without any discus-
sion, Sarasota County
commissioners voted
unanimously to approve
a resolution recommend-
ing a county business'
inclusion in the state
Brownfield Redevelop-
ment Bonus Refund
Program.
If approved by the
state, the business -
code-named Project
Phone could be eli-
gible for a tax refund of


up to $750,000.
The state will be
notified of the board's
actions, Jeff Maultsby,
county business and
economic director, said
Tuesday.
A brownfield is a tract
of land that has been
developed for industrial
purposes, polluted and
then abandoned. The
state brownfield program
offers incentives to busi-
nesses and developers
to clean up a brownfield
site and redevelop it.
The Project Phone


resolution was one of 26
items included under
the consent agenda and
considered routine. Tues-
day's 5-0 vote came on a
motion by Commissioner
Carolyn Mason.
Both county staff and
the Economic Develop-
ment Corp. of Sarasota
County recommended
the resolution's approval.
According to staff, the
project would involve
both retention in the
county and expansion
of the business. The
unnamed company,


which has been in the
county for more than 15
years, already has 500
employees.
State Sunshine Laws
allow for the code
name. Under state law,
businesses can invoke
confidentiality regarding
their plans to relocate or
expand. The confiden-
tiality request must be
made in writing.
"The name can, and
will, be released after
state approval," Maultsby
said in an email.
The brownfield refund


program will allow the
Project Phone company
to get a tax refund in an
amount up to $2,500
for each job it creates.
County commissioners
had to weigh in on the
application because, if it
is approved by the state,
the county is required
to provide a 20 percent
local match of the total
rebate.
In this case, the state
would refund $2,000 and
Sarasota County $500. At
the estimated 300 jobs
the company said it will
create over two years, the
county refund could total
$150,000 over five years,
starting in July 2013.
Maultsby said last week
that an applicant also
must demonstrate a fixed
capital investment of at
least $2 million in mixed-
use business activities,
which the Project Phone


company has indicated
it will make in a facility
approximately 143,750
square feet.
Lisa Damschroder,
county economic devel-
opment coordinator,
said last week the money
for the refund will come
from county Economic
Development Incen-
tive funds, which origi-
nally were created with
money from the sale of
lots that had reverted
to the county. The EDIF
recently received a
$6 million infusion from
general revenues, she
said.
Damschroder said
the program contains
benchmarks created by
the state.
"If they meet the state
benchmarks, then we
pay," she said.

Five arrested in retail theft scheme


The Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office has
arrested five St. Peters-
burg residents in a
scheme to steal nearly
$11,000 of merchandise
from a Sarasota store
Monday.
The SCSO issued a
press release to warn
area retailers about the
scheme.
The group was try-
ing to use a RushCard
Visa card to make the
purchase at Look at Me
Now Urban Wear on
17th Street. When the
transaction could not be
processed as a debit, it
was also attempted as a
credit.
When that also failed,
the female suspect pre-
tended to call the bank
and an alleged bank
representative gave the
clerk permission to run
the card offlinee."
The clerk recalled a
scam alert that detailed
a similar crime and
stalled the suspects until
deputies arrived.
Deputies found two
men in a waiting vehicle,
one at the store entrance
and two inside. They
also determined that the
person pretending to
be the bank official was
actually one of the men
in the car.
The five suspects -
Jermell Ford, Wanda
Douglass, Terron Gland,


I POLICE BEAT
The information for Police Beat is gathered from police, sheriff's office, Florida Highway

charged with scheming
to defraud. Poole faces
one additional charge
for possession of mari-
juana. All of the suspects
have prior arrests in
Pinellas County for a
range of crimes.

School board seeks local site to store buses


By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER

Every day, about 100
buses pick up and drop
off students at 10 local
schools. Drivers store the
buses at Taylor Ranch
Elementary School in
South Venice, or at the
school district's bus
depot in Osprey.
The distance between
each school and the bus
depot is called "dead-
head miles."
"Everyday, 10,000
dead-head miles are trav-
eled," Sarasota County
School Board long-range
planner Ken Marsh told
North Port city staff
Tuesday during a presen-
tation. "The dead-head
miles mean extra fuel
and oil used to store the
buses at the depots."
Marsh said the school
board is looking to save
a half-million dollars
by keeping the buses in
North Port.
"We have looked at a
dozen possible sites in
the city that might work
as a bus depot," Marsh
said, adding drawbacks
include not having a site
with fuel pumps. "We
have found two or three
that are ideal."
Marsh pitched the idea
of purchasing the city's
aging maintenance facil-
ity along Pan American
Boulevard, which already
has a fuel tank and storage
space for vehicles. The
city is currently building
a $6.2 million fleet facility
along Price Boulevard to
replace the one that's been
operating at Pan Ameri-
can for decades.
"If we were to purchase
(the Pan American) site,
it could significantly
reduce the cost of our
operating budget,"
Marsh said. "We would
still need a nearby site
for parking for our bus
drivers, but there is land

The Sarasota County School Board is in talks with the city of North Port to possibly purchase
or lease the old city maintenance yard on Pan American Boulevard, pictured here. The city is
building a new maintenance facility along Price Boulevard. The School Board would like to use
the space to house school buses, which could mean a half-million dollars in savings each year.


available. We don't own
any of the property yet."
City staff explained a
traffic statement would
have to be submitted to
explain the anticipated
impact of the buses along
Pan American. There are
wetland and potential
flood issues with one


of the wooded sites the
board is considering.
Neighborhood Devel-
opment Services Planner
Barbara McKeathon said
because there would be
major changes made to
the facility, such as tear-
ing down a structure and
possibly adding another,


the school board would
have to follow new
regulations in the city's


Unified Land Develop-
ment Code.
Most city staff agreed
the old facility is ideal,
as garbage trucks and
other large vehicles were
housed there.
Marsh said the buses
would be leaving the
depot around 5:30 a.m.
and returning between
routes and later in the
afternoon. The buses
would not travel the
same routes, minimizing
the impact on neighbor-
hoods. Employees likely
would park in the next
lot over, owned by devel-
oper Larry Tenbusch.
No cost figures were
discussed.
"We offered to work
with the school board
when we were building
our new facility by add-
ing four extra bays for
them," said North Port
City Manager Jonathan

Lewis, who did not
attend Tuesday's meet-
ing. "They weren't able
to make it work. Now,
we would consider a
lease program. I think
the school board may be
more interested in buy-
ing the property. We are
still talking."
Marsh said the district
wants to move forward,
ideally to have a location
in place by the fall. He
said city staff promised
the permitting process
wouldn't take more than
four months to turn
around.
"We have the money
and we want to move
forward," he said. "There
might be some contami-
nants in the soil at the city
site. That might reduce
the price a little if the city
does want to sell it."

Kumo relocating to Jacaranda Plaza


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Kumo Japanese
Steakhouse & Sushi has
announced a move to
the newly renovated
Jacaranda Plaza, join-
ing Bonefish Grill and
Norma Jean's Sports Bar
& Grill.
"We plan an opening
in late October or early
November and will offer
a more comfortable din-
ing experience, doubling
the size of our restaurant
in the new location,"
said Lily Ren, general
manager.
Since 2007 Kumo has
operated from Villa Vene-
zia Plaza on East Venice
Avenue, where it will
continue until the end

Recently revamped Jacaranda Plaza, home to an expanded
Norma Jean's Bar & Grill and the new Bonefish Grill, will
welcome a much larger Kumo Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi
later this year.


of August, when its lease
expires. On June 1, it
takes the keys of the new


location and will begin a
four-month build-out.
The move gives Kumo


the opportunity to
expand from 3,000 to
6,000 square feet and
cater to 250 diners,
almost triple the cur-
rent number, and allow
it to get a liquor license.
Current staffing of 11
will double or even triple
when it reopens.
"Our traditional
menu and prices will
remain the same, with
a monthly special,"
said Ren. "With a more
fashionable appeal, the
decoration will be totally
different, by a new
designer who is combin-
ing the old-fashioned
style of the existing
location with the new
look and fresher designs
of our recently opened
Kumo in North Port."


The sushi bar will seat
about 12 people and 20
diners will be able to sit
at the new full liquor bar.
There will be 10 hiba-
chi tables in the din-
ing room seating 10-14
diners each. Seating will
be more private and
comfortable mostly
booths, preferred by local
customers. Two new
additions are a private
party room for 30 people
and another private
room with two hibachi
tables for 25 diners.
Kumo began as a
family partnership,
opening in Cape Coral
in 2005 following Ren's
move from New York,
where she had grown
up, worked in the family
restaurant and married


in 2004. Her first restau-
rant was the East Venice
Avenue location; two
years later she opened
a second location, now
4,500 square feet, on
University Parkway. In
2010 an even larger,
5,100-square-foot res-
taurant opened in North
Port.
"We want to grow as
a neighborhood chain
restaurant and have
considered expanding
around the state, but
for now we will grow in
small towns within 30
minutes' travel," said
Ren. "We have a dream
someday we can grow
out of state, which would
be wonderful."

take space in the recently
upgraded and renovated
Jacaranda Plaza opens this
week-ZoomTan, 1057
South U.S. 41 Bypass.
TonyToepfer, com-

minute for a spray tan in
a stand-up booth, nude
or wearing a bathing suit.
There are 10 booths for
spray tanning; custom-
ers are encouraged to
return weekly. Towels are
provided and skin lotion
is available.
Founded in 2008, the
company's first salon
was in Naples. It now has
26 in Florida, including
four in Sarasota and one
in North Port. There are
six in New York State and
plans are to aggressively
expand into other states.
Four employees will
operate the Venice
location, part of 100
employed by the com-
pany. Call 877-966-6826.

We recently received
sales statistics for the
Venice area for the first
quarter of the year from
our Multiple Listing
Service provider (My
Florida Regional MLS)
and the numbers are
very encouraging.
The average days-on-
market for the month
of March is down to
116 with inventory at
a low of 1,111 proper-
ties only a 4.5 month
supply.
For single-family
homes and villas we
had a 20.83 percent
increase in sales from
last year 435 year-to-
date as compared to 360


during the first quarter
of 2011.
Condominium sales
also increased, though
the percentage is not
as great 134 units in
the first quarter of this
year compared with 121
for the first quarter of
2011, a 10.74 percent
increase.
Active agents are
buzzing that they
are extremely busy, a
positive sign of things to
come.
Venice Realtors are
also preparing to pres-
ent $10,000 in scholar-
ships to local graduat-
ing seniors. These funds
were raised by a golf
outing, yard sale and an
evening comedy event
coordinated by our
Scholarship Committee.
The scholarships will
be presented on Senior
Awards Night at Venice
High School.
We are proud that we
have contributed more
than $200,000 to local


students since starting
the fundraiser more
than 20 years ago. Our
committee is already
planning our next golf
outing and will be ask-
ing local businesses and
the community for help
with sponsorships, door
prizes, auction items,
etc.
We are also work-
ing on our next event
to benefit our Habitat
House. On June 14,
from 5:30 to 8 p.m., we
will have our annual
Hot Dogs (and Burg-
ers) for Habitat event at
Venice Gardens. Watch
for details on this fun
event. The public is
welcome.

BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Introducing a new
marketing concept, a
California company,
Brainiacs From Mars,
is looking for houses to
paint. In fact, "paint" is
an understatement; it
wants to turn homes into
billboards.
In exchange, the
company promises to
pay your mortgage every
month for as long as the
house remains painted.
Apparently the idea
is already causing
headaches for local
governments, which
are concerned such
nontraditional, high-
impact marketing could
turn communities into
multi-colored eyesores as


giant hamburgers, pizzas,
bananas, cars, fashion
models and the like come
to life on houses.
Every application is
reviewed. If your home
has the "it" factor, a
team member will reach
out to you. The com-
pany's website states
you must own the home;
it cannot be rented or
leased. It will paint the
entire outside of the
house, minus the roof,
the windows and any
awnings, in about three
to five days.
The house must
remain painted for at
least one month, and up
to a year. If you decide
to cancel after one
month or if the company
cancels the agreement, it
will repaint your house


back to the original
colors.
Could it happen in
Venice? It's unlikely, as
city restrictions on signs
would likely prevent
painting homes with
advertisements; there
are rules on paint colors
in some areas. Check
with the city before
you rush to complete
an application form at
www.brainiacsfrommars.
com.
The company name is
a good indication of its
vision: "fresh thinking,
big ideas, cost-effective
solutions and excellent
execution" by "an amaz-
ing team of people mak-
ing our clients' visions
and goals a reality."

Schools capital revenue sources dry up


By STEVEN J. SMITH
SUN CORRESPONDENT

The Sarasota County School
Board held a workshop to
begin the arduous process of
examining its 2012-13 capi-
tal budget, which includes
school construction, main-
tenance, transportation and
general infrastructure.
School District Deputy
Chief Financial Officer Al
Weidner presented a decrease
of 35.6 percent in the tax roll
in the 2012-13 school year
compared to 2007-08. Wei-
dner said that other sources
of revenue that traditionally


bolster the capital budget -
such as sales tax, impact fees,
and education capital outlay
appropriations totaled
as much as $35.8 million in
2007-08.
"Those sources now are
down to $13 million," Weidner
said. "So you can see that
recurring revenues have dra-
matically decreased."
School Superintendent Lori
White agreed, saying the school
board will not have the luxury
of having even a "status quo
budget" to work with this year.
"We're not getting as much
from the state to run the
school district as we did


last year," White said. "And
it is continuing to decrease,
although not to the depth we
were worried about in Decem-
ber with the loss of federal
stimulus dollars."
Board Member Carol Todd
favored looking at the pos-
sibility of transferring funds
from the operating budget to
the capital budget as a means
of easing its projected short-
fall, but faced general resis-
tance from the other board
members particularly Chair
Caroline Zucker.
"With 81 percent of our
operating budget dedicated
to salaries and benefits, we


need every penny we can get
into our operating budget,"
Zucker said.
Zucker said that several
years ago the school board
attempted a fix such as the one
Todd suggested, with negative
results.
"We tried to defer money
from our operating bud-
get into our capital budget,
remember?" Zucker said.
"That's when everything hit
the fan and we ended up hav-
ing to put our money back
from capital back into operat-
ing. And we've been in that
situation since then. And I
don't see us moving away from


this unless the economy picks
up and we have sufficient
funding to be able to fund our
operating budget."
Chief Operating Officer
Scott Lempe conceded that
capital revenue has fallen
over the last few years, but
borrowing at current low
interest rates has enabled the
rebuilding of aging schools
such as Venice High School,
and has freed up funds to
renovate others. Lempe sug-
gested the largest and most
pressing capital-improve-
ment project is a $26.5 mil-
lion renovation of Sarasota
High.


Political hopefuls' petitions rejected


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

It was unusual that
some signature petitions
for four candidates for
Sarasota County office
were rejected by the office
of Supervisor of Elections
Kathy Dent.
What made it even
more odd is that Dent's
office rejected some of
her own petitions for
re-election.
Longtime office-hold-
ers Dent, County Com-
missioner Jon Thaxton
and Sarasota County Tax
Collector Barbara Ford-
Coates, as well as County
Commission candidate
Jennifer Cohen of North
Port, all were told that
some or all of their peti-
tions were rejected.
Dent said that on
April 9, less than a month
before the May 7 deadline
for petition submission, a
state office issued a strict

interpretation of its own
rule, disqualifying single-
signature petition forms
that included extraneous
information or omitted
required information.
"It was irresponsible of
the Division of Elections
to release an opinion that
impacted so many people
within less than a month
of the deadline," Dent
said.
When supporters
printed Dent's emailed
petitions, some cut off
required small-print lan-
guage. Cohen's petition
included a "disclaimer"
saying "Paid for and
approved by the Cam-
paign to Elect Jennifer
Cohen." Such disclaim-
ers have been disallowed
since 2008, because
petitions no longer are
considered political
advertisements.
With the petition
submission deadline
looming, Dent said she

believes there are some
local candidates who
have not yet turned in
their petitions. Dent's
attorney told her not to
accept any more wrongly
marked petitions.
The April rule interpre-
tation was requested by
the supervisor of elec-
tions in Duval County
(Jacksonville), where
a candidate's petitions
included three extrane-
ous markings. The four
affected local candidates
have no recourse for
appeal, other than filing
lawsuits.
They either have to pay
their respective filing fees
(6 percent of the salary
of the office sought in a
partisan race; 4 percent
for a nonpartisan race) or
submit proof of petition
certification by Dent's
office (2,644 signatures
for all offices), to her
office by noon June 8.
Dent, who is running


unopposed so far -
for her fourth term as
elections supervisor,
said she has enough
signatures other than
the rejected ones (about
20) to qualify that way.
Cohen, who is running
for the District 3 seat
currently held by County
Commission Chair Chris-
tine Robinson who
was appointed by then-
Gov. Charlie Crist in 2010
- said she will pay her
$4,713 filing fee and press
on. Thus far, all of her
1,412 petitions have been
rejected.
"I have worked on
many campaigns over
my life and we have
always been told if you
pay (for) the petitions to
be printed, you must put
'Paid for and approved
by the Campaign to Elect
Jennifer Cohen,'" she
said in an email. "I was
shocked and upset. I have
to say my eyes were teary

AN INTERVIEW WITH



PAD


LOCAL UROLOGY SPECIALISTS DISCUSS PATIENT
BENEFITS OF THE NEW DA VINCI SURGICAL SYSTEM.
More specialists at Venice Regional Medical Center are being trained and certified on the da Vinci
Surgical System, a new robotic-assisted technology that allows physicians to perform minimally invasive
procedures in a way that offers great benefits to patients.
Q. How does the da Vinci Surgical System enhance your skills as a surgeon ?
DR. RUANE: The camera magnifies images 10 times and high-definition, 3D optics give me better
visualization and precision in the surgical area.
Q. Are you doing the surgery or is the robot?
DR. RUANE: Instead of using my hands to do the surgery, I control four robotic arms. It's like having an
extra set of hands that are far steadier and more agile than any human could be.
Q. And what does da Vinci mean toyourpatients?
DR. RUANE: It's not the surgery that patients fear-it's the pain and length of recovery. With da Vinci, they can
get back to normal routines much faster and with considerably less pain.

Suspects ID themselves on social media


By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER

Investigators knew
Jovan Cummings was
"completely out of money
and in extreme financial
duress." So when photos
of the 24-year-old holding
a wad of cash appeared
on his Facebook page on
March 28, it confirmed
their suspicions.
Detectives quickly
linked Cummings and
three of his friends to the
March 23 robbery of the
North Port Dollar General
store.
More evidence built
against Cummings after
a photo appeared online
of him holding a handgun
similar to the one used in
the robbery; in another,
he is wearing the same
hat he allegedly wore dur-
ing the crime.
The gun photo also
helped investigators pin-
point the weapon used to
pistol-whip a 72-year-old
Dollar General employee.
The handgun was recov-
ered in the woods on
Chamberlain Boulevard
shortly after the robbery.
Cummings was arrested
and charged with rob-
bery with a firearm,
kidnapping, aggravated
battery and obstructing
justice. He remains at the
Sarasota County Jail on
$470,000 bond.
"It was good police
work mixed with using

COURTESY PHOTO


Investigators knew something must have changed in Jovan
Cummings' life after he posted a photo of himself with a wad of
cash on Facebook, because weeks earlier he told police he was
financially distressed. The photo surfaced on Facebook shortly
after the North Port Dollar General store was robbed and about
$3,000 was taken. Cummings is one of four suspects charged
in the robbery. Facebook and other social media have become
a part of investigative tools helping law enforcement officials
around the globe.


the Dollar General rob-
bery," said North Port
Police Capt. Bob Estrada,
adding detectives now
use an arsenal of online
resources and other social
media to help gather evi-
dence and solve cases.
Much like Cummings,
other suspects have
bragged a little on Face-
book for everyone, includ-
ing investigators, to view.
Last week, www.
happyplace.com gave
one Kentucky man the
title of "quite possibly the
stupidest man on Face-
book" after a photograph
of him siphoning gas out
of a police patrol car was


posted on his page.
Twenty-year-old
Michael Baker's girlfriend
photographed him squat-
ting next to the tank of
the Jenkins Police Depart-
ment patrol car with a
siphon hose and a gas
can, sticking up his mid-
dle finger and smiling.
Baker was arrested and
charged with theft by
unlawful taking. Although
Baker reportedly did it as
a joke, it caused Jenkins
Police Chief Allen Bormes
to announce a plan to
buy lockable gas caps for
patrol cars.
Some websites compile
alleged criminal activity

posted on Facebook for
the world to view, includ-
ing a 21-year-old who
professed his undying
love for a 15-year-old girl.
Another bragged about
how he helped flip over
a police unit and a smart
car, lit a few vehicles on
fire and hit an officer in
riot gear during last year's
Vancouver riot following
the Stanley Cup. Despite
warnings from friends, a
couple of people admit-
ted passing counterfeit
bills to buy money orders
or fast food.
One man wrote he was
"sooooooo" happy to not
have been arrested after
driving drunk, total-
ing his car and safely
making it home to post
the comment. A police
officer's daughter asked
if anyone had a fake ID
she could borrow to get
into a nightclub. One
teen uploaded a photo of
marijuana plants with the
caption "growing 7 hydro
and 3 pot plants."
"We use Facebook and
other social networks to
watch for criminal activ-
ity," said Sarasota County
Sheriff's spokeswoman
Wendy Rose. "Of course,
we also use chat rooms
to obtain incriminating
statements and photos
when working Internet


sex crimes against chil-
dren. Also, we have used
cellphone text messages
as evidence in all types of
crimes."
The SCSO also utilizes
YouTube to ask for help in
identifying robbers and
to showcase the mounted
police, animal services
and deputy training.
North Port police also use
YouTube to spread the
word about safety and
scams.
Unlike the SCSO and
North Port, Venice and
Punta Gorda police
departments, the Char-
lotte County Sheriff's
Office has a Twitter
account to send and read
message posts of up to
140 characters. It also has
an active Facebook page
featuring everything from
photos of deputies partici-
pating in the recent Spe-
cial Olympics torch run to
requests for help catching
burglars, scam artists and
persons of interest.
With 1,538 followers as
of Sunday, the CCSO Face-
book page also solicits for
reserve deputies and has
summaries of arrests, spot
news and crashes, along
with photos.
"Sometimes people
respond to our posts,"
CCSO spokesman Bob
Carpenter said. "We don't


allow profanity, racial
slurs or attacks. I think
people find it helpful get-
ting information from us.
One woman wrote, 'Hey,
that's my brother' on one
of the stories we posted.
"We get feedback some-
times after a person is
arrested. They leave a few
choice words for us. Our
policy is not to respond.
As long as it's not profan-
ity-laced, we leave it on
the Facebook page."
Carpenter said the CCSO
and Punta Gorda Police
Department also use
online tools such as eBay
and other websites to find
stolen merchandise.
"The Punta Gorda
Police Department has
made some outstanding
arrests from using eBay,"
he said. "Our Economic
Crimes division has also
done a very good job at
tracking criminals. We
have an outstanding
computer specialist."
Carpenter said that
despite warnings, individ-
uals still post question-
able activity online.
"Potential employers
and college admissions
offices look at online
profiles," he said. "Some-
times people post things
they regret later."

OUR VIEW



Kudos to Scott for not wielding veto knife


April 17 was a very good day for
Sarasota County, as Gov. Rick
Scott signed off on state fund-
ing for two important local projects.
Scott established performance
parameters but approved $5 million
to develop a world-class rowing facil-
ity at the 600-acre Nathan Bend-
erson Park off University Parkway
and Interstate 75 near the Manatee
County line. He also approved $1 mil-
lion that will kick-start a residential
complex for adults with developmen-
tal disabilities at the Loveland Center
in Venice.
The governor vetoed both mea-
sures last year. In fact, the Love-
land Center's 2011 request was for
$500,000, so waiting an extra year
could be seen as a good thing. Both
projects are worthy, and we com-
mend Scott for taking the time to
fully vet the requests and recognize
their potential. The rowing facility
could light a fuse for tourism and
economic development in the region;
the Loveland Center will establish


an efficient social safety net for an
important population.
The $5 million for Benderson Park
will help fund the final stages of
the rowing center. Sarasota County
has allocated $19.5 million of tour-
ist tax money for the initial stages
of the project. The course has been
lengthened and much of the basic
infrastructure work has been done.
Beyond this are plans for a boat-
house, grandstands and amenities
that will bring the total price tag to
$40 million.
A nonprofit organization, the Sun-
coast Aquatic Nature Center Associa-
tion, will raise the money needed to
accommodate world-level events and
attract teams and fans from around
the world. As a condition for the
$5 million, Scott insisted the center
meet projections that it generate
$12.5 million in sales tax receipts by
2017 and visitors hit a percentage of
projections. If they fail, the money
must be returned to the state.
All in all, it seems a reasonable


demand. County economic incen-
tive grants require similar provisions.
Organizers are confident they can
meet their numbers.
In Venice, BennyWeaver, the Love-
land Center's development director,
gave the lion's share of credit for its
new funding to Sen. Nancy Detert,
R-Venice.
"Sen. Detert has been such a won-
derful, strong supporter of Loveland
for so many years," Weaver told us.
"She just took this on as one of her
top priorities."
The nonprofit Loveland currently
runs day programs for 127 students
from Sarasota and Charlotte coun-
ties on its campus off East Venice
Avenue. The $1 million seed money
will be used to begin a $10 million
residential center to accommodate
those who will increasingly face
transportation and housing issues as
they and their parents age. The
40 condos of the Loveland Village will
help 80 people live independently.
"This is the first generation of


adults with developmental disabili-
ties who will outlive their parents,"
Weaver said. The Loveland program
participants, who don't drive, will
soon need a place to live on their
own. The likely alternative is more
state Medicaid spending on trans-
portation and other services for this
population.
"It's a wise use of taxpayers funds
for folks who can't help themselves,"
Weaver said.
We agree, and we applaud Detert for
her work on the behalf of the Loveland
community. We also applaud Scott's
recognition of Loveland's value. The
state money will spur more private
and nonprofit giving. It should save
the state in Medicaid costs in the
future. And it will allow the develop-
mentally disabled to live independent
lives to the fullest.
"We're trying to be proactive,"
Weaver said. "This is the right
thing to do for folks who can't help
themselves."
We couldn't agree more.


Celebrate locals


One of the greatest things
in our world is positive con-
sistency, and the rewards
we gain from this wonderful
momentum generator. As we
handle yet another transi-
tion of population for the
spring and summer months, it
became clear to me that while
in fact we have our fair share
of visitors every year, the most
positive consistency for our
businesses is the people who
live here year-round.
These are the folks who con-
tinue to affect local economics
well into the summer months.
These folks are often unher-
alded when our visitors arrive
as we applaud the word known
as "season," often forgetting
that the people who live here
year-round continue to be a
part of the economic growth
- yes, even when our winter
crowd arrives.
Our locals continue to be the
base of business existence, no
matter what part of the year
we happen to be in. This group
most likely will spend just as
much and maybe more as they
participate in the economy on
an annual basis. This group
could also be donating more
to the many needy organiza-
tions in our region. Statistically
speaking, I would bet it's more
as the needs don't go away and
neither do the folks living here
permanently.
The more I delve into this
subject, the more I am con-
vinced that without that base
participating, the season as
it is known might not be the
golden goose we proclaim.
Don't misunderstand me, I
know the season brings an
awful lot of excitement into the
market and spending reaches
new heights. This fact is proven
year after year, and we are
most appreciative. I just want
our businesses to remember
our local clients and find a
reason to get them into your
store or reward them for their
past visits.
Just as I ask the folks to make
a decision to shop local when
there is a choice, I remind


businesses to think of the
locals when they decide to do a
special. A great idea would be
a "Support your local residents
day" after the traffic north dies
down. It would most certainly
be a rewarding experience, and
we could all give them special
treatment as they visit the
shops, restaurants, pubs and
service-related industries.
Reminding the local popu-
lation of the flavor of your
business, the quality of your
goods and, most important,
the ambiance that each of you
create in your store goes a long
way in keeping the economy
thriving. I enjoy visiting all of
these types of locations year-
round and am positive many
of our citizens feel the same
way.
Working together, both the
business community and
the residents can find more
productive summers in the
future. Business has to give us
a reason or two to get off the
couch. The population ... well,
we just need to jump up off
that couch and go see what all
the fuss is about.
Switching gears, it saddens
me to say that it is now less
than 100 days until a huge
event will occur. This may be
one of the biggest events in
Venice history, maybe Florida's
history Jan Lugar is retiring
to a life of traveling and driving
Fred crazy.
Oops, did I say that out
loud?
What I meant to say was
that she and Fred will be
driving to many places after
she retires. Sorry about the
confusion.
Jan has been a tremendous
asset for whatever company
she has worked with. In our
case, we have been blessed
with Jan for almost 10 years.
She is a valued employee and
is considered to be an elite
human being. I nicknamed
her "Social Director" soon
after meeting her and she is
my living Venice history book.
All of us are going to miss her
charm and positivity at our
shop, but more important, we
are going to miss her positive
consistency, so much so that
we are calling her last month
with us "Janapalooza" instead
of July.
Stop in and say goodbye to
Jan if you get the chance, and
as far as Fred goes ... he is a
lucky guy.

Hates it. I hate the round-
about. I think it's very danger-
ous. I avoid it, but once in a
while I make a mistake and go
down Venice Avenue and I feel
like I'm taking my life in my
hands. Please bring back the
traffic lights and the arrows
that we all understand. Older
people sometimes can't turn
their heads around that much.
They get stiff in the shoulders
so it's hard to turn and look and
see what's coming. Get rid of it.
Cats haven. The preserve is
a home for many Florida bob-
cats. Leave the lime pits alone.
Disgusting. What is happen-
ing when they won't let yoga
on the beach free? Who owns
this beach anyway, the taxpay-
ers or the mayor and council?
This is disgusting.
The best. I think the round-
about is the best thing since
sliced bread. It's much quicker
than the lights could ever be. It
just takes getting accustomed
to. I've used them in Europe
and am accustomed to them
because of it. I think it's the
best thing going.
What gives? What part of "No
animals allowed" do dog own-
ers at dog beach in Venice seem
to be unable to understand?
Every day I see 10 to 15 pairs
or couples heading south from
dog beach with animals in tow
in an area that clearly says "No
animals allowed." Do they think
this does not apply to them?
Tithe, Rick. As a Catholic,
I'm tired of hearing Rick
Santorum being described as
a devout Catholic. He donates
a measly 2 percent of his
million-dollar income to char-
ity. Most Catholic churches,
including local ones, expect
a good member to donate
10 percent of his income to
the church as a tithe. And
any belief that seven chil-
dren makes Santorum a good
Catholic is 60 years out of date.


Let 'em


Have It
Today, the Catholic Church
does not expect any member
to have more children than
they can handle because of
health and wealth restrictions.
Birth control must be managed
through abstinence. The same
thing is demanded of all single
people so-called "natural"
birth control, which also
demands a healthy dose of
abstinence. Santorum claims
his wife wanted lots of kids,
but they have had only one in
12 years. Is Santorum really a
good example for teenagers?
Smooth. The roundabout
moves as smooth as can be. We
need more of them.
Problems. There are sev-
eral problems concerning the
roundabout. At around 200 feet
across, it is too small to safely
support two or more lanes
of traffic. There isn't enough
distance between the entrances
and exits to allow lane changes
without risk of collision.
Most roundabouts I've seen
are single lane with traffic
merging into one lane upon
approaching the entrances.


This eliminates competition for
an exit with an adjacent vehicle
and much reduces accidents.
Next, the 15 mph speed limit
is ignored and not enforced. I
have not seen a patrol officer
or car there since it opened
and some drivers seem to enjoy
racing around to their exit.
Finally, there's no safe way for
pedestrians to cross any of the
four roads especially with the
two lanes of traffic exiting. The
attention is on other traffic. The
crosswalks are hardly visible.
I'd like to see the county com-
missioners try to walk across
all four roads at 4:30 on a work
day. Even better, try this in a
wheelchair or on crutches. My
solution: Either go to a single-
lane roundabout or install traf-
fic lights like those on Harbor
and Venice Avenue.
Fairness. While I think yoga
on the beach is a wonder-
ful thing for residents and
visitors, my major concern is
that someone is using public
property for their office and is
collecting a lot of money for
that in the realm of it being a
gift. Fair is fair. None of us sets
up our office at the beach, and
I think if someone plans on
doing so that they should pay
their fair share.

Classic children's book takes to the stage


LAURIE
COLTON
GUEST COLUMNIST

Have you read "The
Phantom Tollbooth"?
Perhaps when you were a
kid? (Norton Juster's clas-
sic children's novel was
first published in 1961
and just celebrated its
50th anniversary.) Maybe
as a parent or grandpar-
ent with your child? As a
teacher?
I missed reading it as a
child. I missed reading it
as an elementary educa-
tion major. And I never
used it in a classroom. I
am finally lucky enough
to be reading it now -
at age 41 because
Venice Theatre is putting
on a play based on this


marvelous book. I want to
make sure I understand
what it's about so I can
publicize and market the
show, which will be play-
ing next month as part of
our Generations Series.
As a former teacher,
I can't believe I missed
the opportunity to share
"The Phantom Tollbooth"
with students. Or that I
didn't use it when tutor-
ing at the Family Literacy
program I worked with in
Chicago. But better late
than never.
Each night as I read
a chapter or two of the
book before bed, I'm not
only entertained, but
struck by how chock-full
of lessons it is. So much
wonderful wordplay.
Similes. Metaphors.
Idioms. With a bit of
math, philosophy and


spirituality thrown in for
good measure.
If you're not familiar
with it, "The Phantom
Tollbooth" is the story of
Milo, a bored young boy
who is transformed when
he discovers a magic
tollbooth that's a gateway
to all kinds of adven-
tures. He meets kings
and princesses and visits
fantastic places, like the
Foothills of Confusion
and the Mountains of
Ignorance, all with his
trusty companion, Tock,
the "watchdog."
Do yourself a huge
favor. If you've read "The
Phantom Tollbooth,"
read it again. If you've
never read it, read it now.
No matter your age. If
your child is too young
to read it under the
recommended 9-12 years


of age read it aloud to
him or her. If you think
you're too old, you're
wrong.
The New York Times
said, "Most books adver-
tised for 'readers of all
ages' fail to keep their
promise. But Norton
Juster's amazing fantasy
has something wonderful
for anybody old enough
to relish the allegorical
wisdom of'Alice in Won-
derland' and the pointed
whimsy of 'The Wizard
of Oz.'"
Because of its 50th
anniversary, Norton
Juster's "The Phantom
Tollbooth" (with illustra-
tions by the illustrious
Jules Feiffer) has been
getting extra attention
lately. CBS Sunday Morn-
ing recently aired a piece
about it called "Crafting a


Literary Classic." Presi-
dent Obama was seen
buying the book with his
daughters on "Small Busi-
ness Saturday" at Kramer-
books & Afterwords Caf6
in Washington, D.C. And
now, Venice Theatre is
staging the stage adapta-
tion by Susan Nanus.
I can't think of a better
book to make the jump
from page to stage. It's a
dream come true for the
designers.
Ross Boehringer is
using his abundant
creativity to design cos-
tumes for characters like
the Spelling Bee and the
Mathemagician. Donna
Buckalter is designing
a set that brings to life
locales such as the Island
of Conclusions and the
city of Dictionopolis.
Dorian Boyd's sound


designs will capture the
unusual noises of Kokofo-
nous A. Dischord, Doctor
of Dissonance, including
"a blindfolded octopus
unwrapping a cello-
phane-covered bathtub."
Pick up the book today
and go with Milo on
his adventures. Savor
the beautifully creative
language. And when
you're done, come see
our show, directed by
Candace Artim.
"The Phantom Toll-
booth" will be brought
to life on Venice The-
atre's Pinkerton Stage
May 17-27. Tickets
are available at www.
venicestage.com or
9441-488-1115.

I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Finances are
an open book


In response to the
anonymous "Numbers,
please" writer, who ques-
tions the financial com-
petency of the Venice
Circus Arts Foundation,
maybe you should reveal
yourself and just ask for
the numbers.
I am the treasurer
of the VCAF and also
a local certified public
accountant with the firm
of Dowd, Whittaker &
Associates, CPAs. I joined
the board of VCAF last
fall and have been busy
computerizing and for-
malizing the accounting
system.
Internal controls are
in place, and we com-
pare budget to actual
numbers at our monthly
board meetings. VCAF's
2010 financial statements
were audited by my firm
before I joined the board,
and we gave it a clean
opinion. My firm audits
several nonprofit orga-
nizations in the Venice
area. VCAF is now look-
ing for a CPA to audit our
2011 financial at a price
it can afford.
The 2010 audit and the
unaudited 2011 and 2012
financial are available
upon request at my office.
I'm confident that anyone
who looks at our expendi-
tures will be satisfied that
they are in furtherance of
our mission of preserving
circus arts in Venice and,
more specifically, save the
Venice Circus Arena.
No, we don't have all
the answers on how to
accomplish this, but
we certainly welcome
the community's input
on how we can most
effectively expend the
generous donations we
have received to make it
happen.

Your recent article con-
cerning the active yoga
beach group and county
revenues is perhaps
the first thrust by those
who have not retired.
The county folks are not
responsible for the beach
and taking control is
rather pushy.
Next is a toll booth
on the Legacy Trail, a
$13 million to $15 mil-
lion expenditure, which
effectively prevents the
historic Venice train sta-
tion from ever seeing a

Save the postal service
Editor:
Save the U.S. Postal
Service. President Obama
wants to dismantle the
postal service, which uses
no tax money. Its finan-
cial issues were caused
by President Bush in 1992
borrowing billions from
the postal service and the
Social Security fund to
cover his deficit spend-
ing and then mandating
the postal service to fund,
in advance, $5.5 billion
a year for retired postal
medical benefits, which
the postal service covers
with its own money. Why?
The postmaster general
agrees with President
Obama by not objecting
as he should.
The postal service was
always profitable, even
in the worst recession in
80 years and even in the
Internet age and still is -
without the $5.5 billion
mandate. The mandate
and the borrowed billions
caused financial difficulty
for the postal service.
To date, the U.S. Gov-
ernment owes the postal
service the borrowed
billions and five years of
the $5.5 billion mandate,
which is an additional
$27.5 billion.
It's easier to close the
postal service without
payment and confiscate
the postal service's billions
in reserve accounts. Clos-
ing the postal service will
put thousands of people
out of work besides postal
service employees.
Readers, please call or
email your congressional
representatives to save
your postal service in its
entirety as is.

One of my favorite
quotes comes from the
mind of Robert E Ken-
nedy, and it goes like
this, "Each time a man
stands up for an ideal
or acts to improve the
lot of others, or strikes
out against injustice, he
sends forth a tiny ripple
of hope, and crossing
each other from a mil-
lion different centers
of energy and daring,
those ripples can build a
current which can sweep
down the mightiest
walls of oppression and
resistance."
I have been an
observer of Venice High
School baseball since
1998. I was present at the
birth of both the Dia-
mond Boosters Club and
that wonderful baseball
field. I was present when
coach Craig Faulkner
unveiled the motto of
Venice High School
Baseball, "Excellence on
and off the Field!"
On Saturday, March 31,
I came to a full under-
standing of the meaning
and sentiments of not
only Faulkner's motto
but the words of Ken-
nedy; and it all came
about by simply hang-
ing around the Casey
Key Fish House for the
afternoon.

Reigning state cham-
pion Sarasota Crew out-
performed all 33 teams to
capture the 2012 Florida
state championship in
the Florida Scholastic
Rowing Association State
Sculling Championship
at Nathan Benderson
Park in Sarasota.
The Crew beat Miami
Beach Rowing Club by
24 points to repeat as


people gathered to
"improve the lot of oth-
ers" by taking part in the
second annual Indians
Grand Slam Fishing
Tournament put on by
the Diamond Boosters
Club. More than 200
people on more than 50
boats enjoyed a beautiful
Florida spring day on the
Gulf of Mexico.
An interesting thing
happened in the gather-
ing as their "ripples of
hope" were sent forth
and apparently "crossed
each other from those
different centers of
energy and daring",
causing some remark-
able things to take place.
Where to begin?
Well, the energy of the
Boosters Club tapped the
energy of Ram Marine,
which tapped the energy
of Economy Tackle as
well as the generosity of
Shakespeare Rods and
Walmart, resulting in
more than 50 kids receiv-
ing new fishing poles.
Then there is the matter
of the more than 400
pounds of fresh fish that
were caught and donated
to the Center for Hope.
As the afternoon
progressed and the boats
began to trickle in with
their catches, many cap-
tains noticed the poster
for Veterans Night sched-
uled for the Venice High
School baseball field
April 14. One captain
after another inquired
as to the specifics of that
event and at least 10
captains committed to
take our "wounded war-
riors" out for a day on

was the Venice High
School baseball team, a
collection of young men
who have dedicated and
committed themselves to
being a part of some-
thing special, a part of
the Venice High School
baseball program and all
that it involves.
AVHS baseball player
is far more than simply
a baseball player. He is
an active member of the

is reaching out to young-
sters in the Reading


Mentors Program, assist-

Program or simply hang-
ing out and teaching kids
how to fish.
And in the middle of
the players is head coach
Craig Faulkner, who 15
years ago had a vision
- a vision of a baseball
program that would
take boys to manhood
through the vehicle of
baseball, and in learn-
ing the game of baseball,
they would also learn
what it is to become an


honorable citizen within
the community and thus
the country. To learn to
strive to be their very
best not only on the
field, but in the class-
room, in their home and
in their community.
Faulkner's vision was
palpable on that particu-
lar day as it has been for
15 years a vision that
has been realized, and
made the Venice com-
munity a far better place
because of it.
Thanks, coach!

By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

The Salvation Army
of Venice served 20,000
people last year not
bad for a city with some
19,000 residents.
Founded in 1984, the
Venice corps serves
people throughout
South County, which has
100,000 or so people liv-
ing from Osprey south to
the border of Charlotte
County. Each week, the
local corps and its North
Port office provide food
to individuals and fami-
lies, assist with the pay-
ment of utility bills and
rent, provide bus passes
to help people get to
work, care for youngsters
in an after-school pro-
gram, welcome seniors
for various activities,
outfit whole families
with clothing and even
furniture when a disaster
such as a household fire
takes everything, and so
much more.
The cost for all this
last year was $2,256,424,
or $123,396 more than
the corps' income for the
year. Nearly half of the
total came from dona-
tions and such special
events as the Christmas
bell-ringing program.
More than $925,000
came from thrift shop
sales derived from the
two corps-operated
stores in Osprey and
Venice.
About 10 percent of
the total income went
to The Salvation Army
headquarters, where it is
used for such things as
disaster relief.
The Venice corps is
directed by Lts. Samuel
and Christine Kim.
"On Sept. 11, 2001, the
Salvation Army deployed
workers to the site within
an hour," Florida Divi-
sional Commander Lt.
Col. Vern Jewett said
at the annual Venice
corps' volunteer appre-
ciation luncheon April 5.
Response was just as
rapid when Katrina hit
New Orleans and more
recently when tornadoes
ripped through Texas.
Jewett spoke about the
three characteristics of
The Salvation Army.
"The first is response
to human deprivation,"
he said.
The Salvation Army
was founded in Lon-
don in 1865 by William
Booth. Jewett said that in
1887, Booth crossed over
London Bridge and saw
the "bridge derelicts,"
people with virtually
nothing who were living
in deplorable conditions
below the bridge, gain-
ing warmth from old
cardboard and tattered
clothing. When Booth's
son, Branwell, showed
up the next morning, the
senior Booth asked him
if he knew about those
people.
"Everyone does,"
the son is said to have
replied.


Martha and Jerry Jarrett of Venice accepted an award on behalf
of Venice Presbyterian Church for the many hours donated by
church members to the annual Christmas Kettle Drive.


"What are you going
to do about it?" was his
father's response.
According to Jewett,
Branwell Booth had
plenty of excuses about
why nothing was done,
including that Salvation
Army resources were
already stretched pretty
thin. The elder Booth
simply replied that he
had better do something
about those people.
Branwell did manage to
stretch the money and
help the people and
many others during his
tenure in office.
Booth's youngest
daughter, Eva, who later
changed her name to
Evangeline, was used
by Jewett to illustrate
another characteristic -
the work of The Salvation
Army was "compelled by
love of Christ."
Evangeline Booth was
put in charge of The
Salvation Army branch in
the United States in 1904.
Known for her musical and
acting abilities, she made
The Salvation Army a
household name 10
years after the end of
World War I.
During the war she
organized a group of
women volunteers
who became known as
the "Doughnut Girls"
because they served
doughnuts to army per-
sonnel. At the 10th anni-
versary of the end of that
war, she arrived in Paris
with a large delegation of
members of the Ameri-
can Legion. Jewett said
that when she was put at
the head of the celebra-
tion parade between
Gen. John "Blackjack"
Pershing and Ferdinand
Foch, who was supreme
commander of the Allied
Forces, The Salvation
Army gained national
and international recog-
nition for its service.
Jewett said the third
characteristic of The
Salvation Army is that
it is authenticated by
the grace of God, and
mentioned the nearly
instant deployment of
volunteers on Sept. 11 as
proof.
"Ground Zero was the
largest deployment in the
history of The Salvation
Army," he said.
Because The Salvation


Army's founder attended
to physical needs first
in his mission to help
people find salvation, he
created an organization
that is both church and
charity. There is a church
in the Venice corps build-
ing where services are
held each Sunday, but
that same building also
houses programs for
young and old, serves
Thanksgiving dinner
to anyone who shows
up, provides a lengthy
list of services to those
in need and maintains
a provisioned canteen
that is ready to roll at a
moment's notice in case
of any type of disaster.
"Our mission of 'Heart
to God, Hand to Man' is
evidenced every day by
the diligent, caring and
compassionate staff and
volunteers of The Salva-
tion Army," Lt. Samuel
Kim wrote in a letter
to those attending the
volunteer appreciation
luncheon on April 5.
Locally, those 20,000
people were assisted
with 15,954 grocery
orders, transportation
for 1,576 people, rent
and utility payments for
606 families, school bags
and supplies for 500
students, Thanksgiving
meals for 364 people,
turkeys for 350 families
and gift cards for 300
families plus 5,250 toys
for children and 2,000
items of new clothing for
children at Christmas.
Food is distributed to
clients on Tuesday and
Friday.
The annual Christ-
mas Kettle collection
brought in $121,305.35,
which stays entirely in
the area served by the
Venice corps. The Kims
said there were just seven
paid bell ringers. Volun-
teers staffed nearly all the
kettles nearly all the time.
Members of the Venice-
Nokomis Methodist
Church led the list of vol-
unteers in both number
of volunteers and money
collected.

'The Miser'


is worth its


weight in gold


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Fans of Moliere's mirth
likely will enjoy Venice
Theatre's production
of "The Miser," which
opened Thursday in
the theater's blackbox
Pinkerton space.
Despite some technical
glitches that began with
an unrehearsed blackout
at the beginning of the
show and costume and
set mishaps later on at
the opening night per-
formance, cast and crew
delivered an entertaining
bit of theater.
Moliere is all about out-
rageous characters and
"The Miser" has no lack
of them, from the miser,
Harpagon (Neil Kasanof-
sky), and his son, Cleante
(Hunter Cross), and
daughter, Elise (Tarah
Hart), to a marriage
broker named Frosine
(Joanna Fontane) and
assorted underpaid ser-
vants such as La Fleche
(Jim McGinnis), Jacques
(Paul Mellen), Dame
Claude (Amy Blake), Brin-
davoine (Peg McGinnis,
who also plays Mistress
Simon) and LaMerluche
(Ljubica Nikolic).
Then there is Valere
(Jeremy Guerrero), who
is in love with Elise, and
Mariane (Arianna DeCec-
co), who is in love with
Cleante but finds herself
betrothed to his father.
Throw in a commissioner
(George Cerron) called
upon to sort out such
matters as a missing trea-
sure box, and Anselme
(Lee Hakeem), who turns
out to be the father of
two of the young people,
and the laughs begin to
flow in New Orleans
in the middle of the 20th
century.
That "The Miser" was
written by a Frenchman
in 1668 matters not one
iota, especially in this
adaptation by Timothy
Mooney, who knows
about as much about
Moliere as anyone,


including this play's
director, Murray Chase,
who has a history of
directing award-winning
versions of works by
Moliere.
"Moliere Than Thou,"
Mooney's unique take on
the French playwright,
was one of the most
popular works at the
American Association
of Community Theatres
International Festival at
Venice Theatre in 2010.
He spends much of each
year traveling the coun-
try performing that and
other variations of Mo-
liere's and Shakespeare's
works at colleges and
universities. Mooney has
written 17 rhymed Eng-
lish variations of Moliere
works, adding his own wit
to each one.
Chase added the
change of location once
he read Mooney's adapta-
tion and the theater's resi-
dent costume designer
jumped in with mis-
matched socks, patched


Neil Kasanofsky as Harpagon, Joanna Fontane as Frosine (a
woman of intrigue) and Jeremy Guerrero as Valere, who is in
love with Harpagon's daughter, Elise (Tarah Hart), in Venice
Theatre's production of"The Miser":'

'The Miser'


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR
The audience finds
much to laugh about
in Timothy Mooney's
adaptation of Moliere's
"The Miser," running as
a Stage II production at
Venice Theatre through
May 6.
Director Murray Chase
captures the essence of
Moliere's comedic tech-
niques of surprise one
of my favorite artistic
treatments and one that
aptly characterizes Mo-
liere. He often allows the
actors to engage with the
audience by having an
actor speak to another,


followed by a pause when
the actor faces the audi-
ence with a questioning
look: "What do you think
about this?" Sometimes
the characters step right
up to an audience mem-
ber and confide in him
or her.
Chase also employs
Moliere's technique
of having a conversa-
tion be unsuspectingly
overheard. At one point,
the miser (Neil Kasanof-
sky as Harpagon) talks
about his secret box of
10,000 crowns and his son
(Hunter Cross as Cleante)
and daughter (Tarah Hart

Life Week, citizens are in-
vited to celebrate cancer
survivorship, remember
loved ones lost to the
disease, honor caregiv-
ers and join Venice's fight
against cancer. Only to-
gether will we find a cure.
Last year, the Venice
Relay came in 10th in the
state of Florida for the
amount of money raised
during the event.
The American Cancer
Society Relay For Life is a
life-changing event that
gives everyone in com-
munities across the globe
a chance to celebrate the
lives of people who have
battled cancer, remem-
ber loved ones lost and
fight against the disease.
At the relay, teams of
people camp out at a

Dececco as Marianne),
whom his son also loves,
or his money. The play
centers around this affair
and his battles with his
son, who has won Mari-
anne's heart. Cleante and
Marianne cannot live
out their love unless the
miser lets go.
Although Moliere
wrote in the mid-1600s,
the play is set in the mid-
1950s. Chase thought it


Kasanofsky was as
outrageous as one could
wish in the role, some-
thing he knows how to
do after all his years

his work with Chase.

bit too quickly in the
first scene but then
settled into her role as
the miser's daughter.
Guerrero showed again
that he can handle any
role handed him and


or fairground and take
turns walking or running
around a track or path. A
team representative is on
the track at all times. Be-
cause cancer never sleeps,
relays are overnight events
up to 24 hours.
Each year, more than
3.5 million people in about
5,000 U.S. communities
and 19 other countries
participate in this global
phenomenon and raise
much-needed funds and
awareness to save lives
from cancer. Thanks
to participants, we are
creating a world with more
birthdays, a world where
cancer never steals an-
other year of anyone's life.
A survivor is any-
one who has heard the
words, "You have cancer."

For Life because they are
the reason we relay.
Our goal is to create a
world where more people
survive cancer. This year,
more than 11 million
people will be able to do
that thanks to the support
of millions of dedicated
participants.
Survivors are guests of
honor at the relay. Most
relays open with a survivor
lap where they lead the
way around the track and
participants honor and ap-
plaud them. Being a part
of this lap allows survivors
to celebrate what they've
overcome while inspiring
and motivating their com-
munity to fight. Survivors
are proof that cancer can
be defeated.

IS Back Pain All In Your Head?
I Is Back Pain All In Your Head?


DR. DAN BUSCH, DR. ERENE ROMANSKI
CHIROPRACTOR
Two recent studies show that one of the
primary causes of back pain is stress, and if
you are experiencing back pain, it may be a
sign that you are not coping well with
stress. Each study involved soldiers who
reported experiencing back pain. The one
involving Swedish male soldiers showed
that those with poor coping skills were


more likely to have non-specific back pain.
The other, involving soldiers in the U.S.
Army, indicated that the more emotional
distress a soldier experienced, the more
likely he was to seek treatment for acute
low-back pain. These findings reinforce the
common knowledge that tension tends to
settle in the back, and that the taut muscles
may signal the brain to limit movement.

Carol Harrison wins



car at Venice Theatre


STAFF REPORT

After 17 performances
of the world premiere
of "Stand By Your Van,"
Carol Harrison was
named the big winner of
a little car, a brand-new
Scion iQ from Cramer
Toyota in Venice.


Finalists for the car were
selected by a drawing at
each performance. The 17
selected finalists had to
be on stage after the final
performance and partici-
pate in a draw-down to
determine the winner. As
in the play, the last one
standing was the winner.


The play, by Paul Bourne
and Craig Baxter of Eng-
land, has four endings
and four possible winner
scenarios. The real-life
contest sponsored by Cra-
mer Toyota of Venice had
just one winner, Harrison,
who lives in Osprey with
her husband, Jim.


At each performance of Venice Theatre's production of "Stand By Your Van' an audience
member's name was drawn for a chance to win a new 2012 Scion iQ. To determine the winner of
the car at the final performance, as a finalist's name was drawn, he or she left the stage until the
final person standing, Carol Harrison of Osprey, won the car. She is behind and to the right of the
fourth person from the right in the front row.

WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

S9 6 5 Q K Q 10 2 0AK J 7 Q6

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

A You have a good hand but your
square shape is a slight handicap.
Nevertheless, if you don't act now,
later might be too late. Double.

Q 2 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

4 97 1 Q 10 7 6 2 O 8734AJ9

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

A Neither your right-hand opponent
nor partner could act. Where are all
the points and the spades? It looks
like opener has a good black two-
suiter and, should you bid now, you
are giving the opponents a hand.
Switch your major suits and you
might consider bidding one spade,
but missing the spades, stay out of
trouble. Pass.

Q 3 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

6 K97620 AQJ7 0AQ849

The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
14 24 Dbl Pass
9
What action do you take?

A Bid three hearts. You have a
strong unbid major, and partner's
negative double suggests strongly
that he has heart support. We will
even accept four hearts.

Q 4 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
6 AKQJ 9 7 6 AQ9 0A9 %7

The bidding has proceeded:


WEST NORTH EAST
34 Pass Pass
What do you bid now?


SOUTH
9


A We can think of all sorts of cue-
bids and asking bids and who knows
what, none of which will allow us to
find out what we need to know to
reach the best spot. Under the
circumstances, we will go for a rather
obvious bid of six spades and hope
the card gods are smiling on us.

Q 5 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

S9 6 5 Y AJ875 0 7 5 KQ 6


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
14 Pass 22
3: Pass ?
What action do you take?


WEST
Pass


A You could hardly have a weaker
hand for your two-over-one response.
Reverse your spade and diamond
fragments and the hand might even
be too weak for this sequence. As it
is, partner will not be expecting you
to pass and could have additional
values. Bid four hearts.

Q 6 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

SK9 A 8 7 5 0AK J 8 4 410 2

The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
10 Pass 1Y Pass

What do you bid now?

A You have a good-looking hand,
but it still has six losers, so it might
not stretch to game should partner
have only two cover cards. Jump to
three hearts and leave the decision up
to partner.

iApril 25-May 1, 2012 E/N/C/V


What's a person

to do?
Season is over, what's a person to do?
Other than not waiting in line for two hours at some restau-
rants, there is plenty to do.
Topping the list is "The Miser," a Stage II production on Venice
Theatre's Pinkerton Stage. Read more about it and Tim Mooney
who adapted this from Moliere's original work in this edition of
Let's Go.
Coming next on the Mainstage are "Driving Miss Daisy,"
opening May 8 and "17th annual The Loveland Follies"
May 31 through June 3. The latter may be the most heart-warming
production at any theater in the area. There is good reason
for all those performances Loveland's extensive fan
club and the terrific show they put on year after year.
Call 941-488-1115 for tickets to any of these shows.
If you have not seen the Asolo Rep production of "Yentl,"
tomorrow is your last chance. It is definitely worth the trip to
Sarasota for the acting, the music and the story, which is
about the only similarity to the Barbra Streisand film of
the same name.
If you are hooked on "Desperate Housewives,' there
is a variation of the theme at the Asolo where "Fallen Angels"
continues in rotating repertory
Also running in rep is "Hamlet, Prince of Cuba"' See it in the
Mertz Theatre until May 6. After May 6, the show moves to
Miami's South Dade Cultural Arts Center for additional performanc-
es May 11 and 13 in Spanish and 3 p.m. and 8 p.m.
performances in English. For tickets or information about
Asolo offerings, call its box office at 941-351-8000.

With the price of vanilla beans rising as
fast as gasoline, it might be worthwhile
to grow your own.
Learn how to grow such tropical plants and
more on the new Garden and Estates Tour at the
Edison & Ford Winter Estates in Fort Myers. The
special tours are given each Tuesday at 10:30 a.m.
In addition to the home's 20 acres of gardens, the
tours include the Estates' propagating nursery,
shop and new organic gardens.
Edison was as much a botanist as inventor,
often combining the two using bamboo for lamp
filaments and bamboo plants as a barrier for his
swimming pool.
Edison also received many gift plants from
such friends as Harvey Firestone, from whom he
received a 3-foot tall Banyan tree. Today that tree
spreads its limbs over much of the visitor parking
lot and dwarfs a statue of the late inventor.
Since their restoration, the gardens have been
honored by the National Garden Clubs Inc.Tour
guides include the Estates' resident horticulturists
who are University of Florida Master gardeners.
They will share planting advice while also talking
about the history of the gardens and such current
popular topics as stainability and environmental
concerns.
The tours are ideal for anyone who was not
raised in a zone 10 or 11 area. Growing season,
watering needs and more are vastly different in


-- *
When Thomas Edison's first Fort Myers labora-
tory was taken down and shipped to the Henry
Ford museum complex in Michigan, Edison's
wife Mina replaced the building with this
"Moonlight Garden:'
South Florida especially compared to horticul-
tural practices in the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic area
or even South Georgia or North Florida.
Vanilla beans are but one example of the dif-
ferent plants that one might be able to grow in the
sub-tropical and tropical south.
Guides also will discuss fertilizer, insect control
and more during the morning tour. While home-
grown avocados and mangos are desirable,


Vanilla beans grow near a stand of bamboo in the gardens of the Edison and Ford Winter Estates
in Fort Myers.

Don Bruns' 'Too Much Stuff'


BY JENA DES ERMIA
SPECIAL TO THE SUN
( Uoo Much Stuff" by Don Bruns invites the
reader on a wild, wacky ride through the
'IFlorida Keys on a search for buried gold.
It is the newest book written by Bruns, and was
recently published by Oceanview Publishing.
The writer tale has quirky characters like his
two more or less inept detectives, James Lessor
and Skip Moore. Readers of Bruns' other books
will recognize the Florida crackers-turned detec-
tives, who were buddies since grade school,
and who tried several other lines of work before
getting private investigator licenses and opening
More or Less Investigations.
Mary Trueblood hires More or Less Investi-
gations to find the treasure she believes was
stolen from a train wreck by her grandfather
during a 1935 hurricane and storm surge that
killed 500 train workers and passengers. Mary


has a map. It may be accurate. There was a
hurricane in that year.
When Skip and James are not discussing
the sorry state of their finances up til now, they
talk to each other in quips, movie quotes and
understated dialogue with echoes of Robert B.
Parker. Bruns moves his characters from place
to place in memorable vehicles. The detectives
drive a Chevrolet box truck, formerly owned
by a plumbing company the sign remains
on the side of the truck. The truck drinks more
oil than the detectives doYuengling beer.
Em shows up to help. She drives a Porsche
Carrera.The resident realtor, Maria Sanko, who
helps research the gold location, rides a black
Harley-Davidson motorcycle with gold fenders.
The first night of the hunt, they encounter
a dead body in the hotel room where they
planned to stay The cops look at James as
a person of interest but only briefly The


"At Last,' "Pretty Woman," "Sh-Boom," "Devil in
Disguise,' "Blue Moon,' "Twist and Shout,' "Since
I Fell For You" and many more, delivered in the
inimitable Under The Street Lamp-style, with tight
harmonies and slick dance moves that will take
you back to an era of sharkskin suits, flashy cars,
and martini shakers.
Under The Street Lamp will perform at 7:30 p.m.
May 17 at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts
Hall.
For tickets call 239-481-4849 or
www.bbmannpah.com.
The Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall is
located at 8099 College Parkway, Fort Myers.



; latest in series
body is temporarily identified as one of the two
former detectives on the case whom Skip and
James replaced. As Skip and James get closer
to the map site, the action increases.
The doctors own a luxury resort next to an old
Methodist cemetery Many detectives get thrown
out of bars, restaurants and hotels but the "Stuff"
detectives many to be thrown out of a Methodist
cemetery
It all makes for a fun read and will keep you
guessing to the final page.
Bruns said this book was inspired by "Last
Train to Paradise" by Les Standiford, the saga
of Henry Flagler's battle with Mother Nature
while trying to build a railroad to Cuba. The 1935
hurricane destroyed miles of the tracks built by
Flagler's rail company from Miami to Key West
and destroyed his hopes of a rail line to Cuba.
This is the fourth in a series of "Stuff' books
including: "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff,' "Stuff to


PHOU PKOVIUDU
Under The Street Lamp will perform at
7:30 p.m. May 17 at the Barbara B. Mann
Performing Arts Hall.

cated town); Jim who is 40 or older, good-
natured and with a good voice (Natalie's

WBTT ends season with Baker retrospective


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
t lackbird: the Story of Josephine Baker"
is the final show of the season for West-
coast Black Theatre Troupe,
which is now in its second decade. Written
by award-winning playwright Sherman Yellen,
it will play through May 13 at the theater in
Sarasota.
With music by the late Wally Harper, this


new show traces the rags-to-riches career of
Josephine Baker from then-segregated America
to Paris, where she rose to stardom as much
because of her drive as her extraordinary tal-
ent. It would be nearly 50 years before she was
as famous in the U.S. as she had been in
Paris. "Blackbird" covers the years 1919 to
1925 in Paris, the dawning of the Jazz Age
and of Josephine Baker as one of the stars of
that era.


WBTT founder Nate Jacobs said he
learned of the show from WBTT board member
Eva Slane.
"It's a great African American story with terrific
music; our kind of show!" Jacobs said.
Dhakeria Cunningham who was in
"A Raisin in the Sun" earlier this season,
plays the role of Baker. Performing with
her are WBTT regulars Ariel Blue,
Michael Mendez, Tsadok Porter and

'Oliver' charms Apple audiences

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
With songs such "Food, Glorious Food,"
"Pick a Pocket or Two" and "As Long
As He Needs Me," Lionel Bart's
musical "Oliver" was a good choice for the
comeback of Sarasota's "Golden Apple Dinner
Theatre."
With the traffic circle and new parking garage
in operation, fans can now get back to the
country's longest-running dinner theater. The new
production of "Oliver," with Steve and Diane Daw-
son, Robby May and Matty Colonna plus Stevie
Romero as Oliver, is a bonus.
Based on the Charles Dickens' classic,
"Oliver Twist," "Oliver" recounts the story of an
orphan boy whose life in a London workhouse
seems to go from bad to worse simply because
he wants a little more gruel. Sent to work for an
undertaker named Sowerberry (Steve Carroll),
he escapes, only to find himself being picked
up by the Artful Dodger (Colonna) and led to
Fagin (Steve Dawson), who will give him free
lodging. Poor, innocent Oliver does not realize he
will have to learn a trade in exchange for the free
lodging and that the trade is illegal. "Pick a Pocket
or Two," Fagin and the boys sing.
Despite seeming to be destined for a life of
crime or an early demise, Oliver is befriended
by Nancy (Diane Dawson) and then by Mr.
Brownlow and ultimately reunited with his true
family for a better life and a happy ending.
Diane Dawson is the quintessential Nancy,
with voice and mannerisms that once again
show she can master most any role. Romero is
charming as Oliver and Steve Dawson makes the
most of his role as Fagin, coming right after his
successful stint as the director and chief pup-
peteer of "Avenue Q" at Venice Theatre.
May portrays both Bill Sykes and Mr. Bumble
in a curmudgeonly manner, while Carroll man-
ages to be both a bad guy and a good guy with
ease as Sowerberry and Mr. Brownlow. Helen

Venice Theatre updates


classic comedy, 'The Miser'


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Moliere's mirth is timeless and Venice
Theatre has a history of making the most
of Moliere.
That combination bodes well for the newly
opened run of Moliere's "The Miser,' translated by
Tim Mooney in the theater's Pinkerton Theater as
the final Stage II production of the season.
Mooney appeared on the Venice stage during
the 2010 International Theatre Festival in his own
one-man show, "Moliere Than Thou."
First produced in 1668.The play relates the
story of penny-pinching curmudgeon Old Harp-
gon (Neil Kasanofsky who starves the help and
even forces his children to marry for money lest
he use any of his own for their care or even his
own care.
Things become complicated when Harpgon
and his son Cleante (Hunter Cross) both fall for
Mariane (Arianna DeCecco) and his children
conspire to get their hands on his money. Others
in the cast include Amy Blake as Dame Claude,


Tarah Hart as Elise, George Cerron as The
Commissioner, Jim McGinnis as La Fleche, Peg
McGinnis as Brindavoine/Mistress Simon, Joanna
Fontane at Frosine, Jeremy Guerrero as Valerie,
Oaulk Mullen as Master Jacques, Kiki Nikolic as
La Merluche and Lee Hakeem as Anselm.
"The Miser" is directed by the theater's
executive/artistic director Murray Chase who
set the Mooney translation of the play in mid
20th century New Orleans because it "feels
very modern."
Costumes are by Nicholas Hartman with
scenery design by Chris Parrish and jazz/zydeco
background music by the theater's resident sound
designer Dorian Boyd.
Tickets for "The Miser" are available at
www.venicestage.com or by calling the box office

Native plant walk scheduled at Prairie/Shell Creek Preserve


BY CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
embers of the Mangrove Chapter of the
Florida Native Plant Society are planning
a slow stroll on the trails of Prairie/Shell
Creek Preserve in Punta Gorda from 9 a.m. to
11 a.m. Saturday.
Every fourth Saturday from October through
May the group meets to walk at a local park.
The group is eager to return to the preserve
where they observed so much natural beauty last
year. According to the chapter's website http://
mangrove.fnpschapters.org, strollers identified
a "multitude of sand weed, tickseed, sun dews,
purple bush bean, meadow beauty and sabatia
stellaris'
Observant walkers hope to discover, identify,
and photograph a lush variety of wild blooming
flowers and native plants.
Sue Freeman, who is in charge of the FNPS
Mangrove Chapter's publicity, explains, "We're
a very informal group that spends as much
time laughing as we do identifying plants.
People stroll with us who are knowledgeable
about butterflies and birds, so we look up as
well as down."


Strollers are encouraged to wear hats, protective
clothing, and bring sunscreen and drinking water.
Because of unusually dry weather insects have not
been a problem, but leader Denny Girard advises
people to come prepared with insect repellent just
in case.
FNPS' goal is to protect and preserve Florida's
natural environment. Developers and builders are
encouraged and advised by the group to give
serious consideration when planning new con-
struction in areas where wildlife habitats and
native flora could be damaged or destroyed.
The society's efforts have made a difference
in restoring native vegetation at museums,
libraries and parks. They also provide scholar-
ships, speakers, and publications to community
organizations and schools.
Chapters of the FNPS adopt the names of a
native plant, and the Mangrove Chapter is no
exception. In March of 2002, the Charlotte Harbor
Chapter of the FNPS was officially named. It
serves the greater Charlotte Harbor watershed
and coastline including S. Venice, Englewood,
North Port, Placida, Grove City, Boca Grande,
Rotonda, Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte and
nearby communities.

Myakka River Bluegrass Band


BY BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
he patio of the Waterside Grill in Placida
is packed on Tuesday nights because
customers know what to expect. In addition
to the great food and service, the Myakka River
Bluegrass Band plays there Tuesday evenings to
a toe-tapping, appreciative crowd.
Playing traditional bluegrass songs like "Foggy
Mountain Breakdown" and "Orange Blossom," the
group has been together with the current lineup
for about eight months.
Jim Marshall heads the band and plays the
bass as well as serves as its lead singer. Joel
Dean plays the dobro and resonator guitar, and
sings baritone. J. R. Davis plays rhythm guitar
and sings tenor for the group. Jeff Cisco plays the
fiddle and Gary Meadors plays banjo.
Marshall, Davis and another musician formed
the original Myakka River Bluegrass Band in
2005, playing mostly at churches and charity
functions. There have been numerous changes
of players through the years, but the current band
has been together for about eight months and
has really clicked together.
'We are a traditional Bluegrass band,' said
Marshall, "playing in the style of Lester Flatt and
Earl Scruggs from the 1930s to 1950s, not the
more progressive Bluegrass-style."
Marshall grew up in Punta Gorda but moved
to Tampa in 1962 and stayed there for 40 years.
In 2001, he moved back to the area, settling in
El Jobean. He taught himself to play the fiddle,
guitar and mandolin. Marshall is on the Charlotte
County Planning and Zoning Board and is chair-
man of the Charlotte County Historical advisory
Committee.
For years, Davis was a drummer with Bo Davis,


who is half of the popular duo Bo and Becca, who
also play at Waterside Grill. Davis is a sergeant in
the Charlotte County Sheriff's office and is run-
ning for county commissioner.
Cisco taught himself to play and worked odd jobs
to get his first fiddle. "Lots of bands substitute the
mandolin for the fiddle, but we like the fiddle,' said
Cisco, though he is learning the mandolin, too. He's
played on TV with Flatt and Scruggs.
Cisco grew up in the Appalachian Mountains
in West Virginia, and his great-grandfather was
head of the Hatfield clan, half of the famous
Hatfield-McCoy feud. The feud died with the older
generation, he said. Cisco himself had a career
with General Electric before retiring.
Meadors, a retired professor of theology, has
been playing the banjo for 15 years initially
when he lived in Deadwood, Mich., and then
when he moved to this area.
Myakka River Bluegrass Band will be playing
on Sunday at the Punta Gorda History Park at the
fundraiser for Davis' campaign for county commis-
sioner and the Hibiscus Festival in Punta Gorda
on May 19 and 20.
And, of course, you can catch them at the Wa-
terside Grill from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. every Tuesday.
Just follow the crowd to the patio.
The Waterside Grill is located at Gasparilla Ma-
rina, 15001 Gasparilla Road, Placida. For more
information, call 941-697-0724.

A Placida treasure


BY JON BAUMANN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
One of Florida's greatest treasures is the
talented people that have come to live
and work here, whether it be musicians,
writers, artists or chefs. One of those great
talents is Jon Hatch, owner of The Hatch Gallery,
located in the historic Placida Fishing Village,
13060 Fishery Road, Placida.
The Village is also home to The Fishery Res-
taurant, fishing charter opportunities and other
Florida shops, on the grounds of what once was
a commercial marina facility for shrimp boats, a
processing plant and fishing village.
The Hatch Gallery, which opened in 2003, fits
right in to this atmospheric Old Florida location.
"This was actually an old fish house,' said Hatch.
"In the early days, this land was the fishery, doing
a million pounds of fish out of here."
The Hatch Gallery, which is open seven days


a week from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., features pieces
to match the land's history with a combination
of his own creations, family artwork and antique
collectibles. His own pieces include exterior metal
works, designed in a variety of colors suitable for
hanging on the front porch, but he's most noted
for his works in driftwood.
"I've been working with the wood more or
less the last 20 years, but the driftwood came
together about 10 years ago," explained Hatch.
"I'm just giving people a variety of things to
choose. Everything you see is one of a kind. I
keep it affordable for people who want to take
a piece home." One of Hatch's pieces was
picked by a member of the Smithsonian Insti-
tute in Washington, D.C., to be a part of that
organization's fundraising auction, supporting
education, outreach and research by the Institute.
His creations are extremely popular with
customers. In the last four months, he has cre-


John Hatch poses with one of his driftwood art pieces.

Venice Community Orchestra in concert Saturday


BY MCCLAREN MALCOLM
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The Venice Community Orchestra, orga-
nized in 2011, will give its fifth concert
of the season at 11 a.m. Saturday at the
Selby Library meeting room, with Angela Navarro
conducting.
Hear the classics, some familiar, others not
often played, plus an arrangement of "Sound of
Music."
Donations are accepted and applied to the
purchase of new music. The audience may select
and purchase music they would like to hear at
future concerts.
The young organization whose motto is "We
come together to play music; we play music to
come together,' typifies the congeniality of the
members. From dining out after rehearsals to
forming separate ensembles, members enjoy not
only the music they play but the friendships they
develop.
The members, along with volunteers, conduct
the orchestra's business from selecting new
music and printing programs to greeting new
members. Rehearsals are open.The orchestra
welcomes non-musicians to enjoy the music and
volunteer their talents in support of the orchestra.
The orchestra brings together a mix of retired
career musicians to young students. Their
founder and organizer, John Mabardi, retired from
a career in business. He looked for an activity
both meaningful and fun for his free time. His
quest began with a book which he recommends
to retirees: "It's Never Too Late," by John Holt.
That got him thinking that he could try something
entirely different from his former occupation.


A chance encounter when Mabardi was seated
at a breakfast table on a cruise with a music pro-
fessor led him closer to his discovery.The subject
of music came up, and Mabardi mentioned to the
professor that his "career" was "in such a different
field from music." Yet, he wondered, was it possible
that he could play an instrument? "I wouldn't know
where to start:' he told his table mate.
The professor responded that he could
help Mabardi with that. After a few questions
to determine that Mabardi wanted to play with
other people rather than solo, the two narrowed
down the choice of an instrument to cello. He
exclaimed, "I love the cello." He had always
enjoyed listening to cello and owned the works of
Jacqueline du Pre, but he had not thought about
playing the cello.
On returning home from the cruise, Mabardi
found a news article announcing a 13-week instruc-
tion for non-musicians in stringed instruments.
Mabardi signed up and within a few weeks he could
play tunes on his cello. He was hooked. He contin-
ued to take lessons and improve his skill.
But where in Venice would he find other
musicians to play with? This is where his busi-
ness skills came into play. With a little market
research, he determined that professional musi-
cians would love to play with an orchestra during
the off season, and music teachers liked the
idea of sending their students to play with other
musicians.
The next step was to find a place to rehearse
and perform. Presently the orchestra rehearses
and performs at the Jacaranda Library in Venice.
Now, with four concerts performed and the
orchestra growing weekly to a current twenty-five

PROVIDED BY VISANI

Dwight Icenhower and Steve Bobbitt bring
an Elton John and Rod Stewart tribute
show to Visani at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.

years. And during his very successful career,
few have attempted to perform an actual tribute
show. Elvis performer, Icenhower, will be doing
just that.
A little-known secret is that Icenhower is a
huge John fan. In fact, he has seen John perform


'Mu


sic


dozens of times. Icenhower has an amazing col-
lection of early John outfits, including shoes and
glasses.
Bobbitt is an energetic entertainer who not only
looks like but sounds like Rod Stewart. He brings
Rod Stewart alive with his perfect portrayal of the
legendary "Leg Man'" He's got the look and the
moves.

Learn to dive with Florida West Scuba and Charters


BY JON BAUMANN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
For many people, Florida is a place for
dreams, a place to come to find treasure.
There is a romanticized desire to scuba
dive under the sea in search of the big find. As it
turns out, it's not that hard if you have the time,
the desire and good health.
Florida West Scuba and Charters, located
near downtown Venice, is a full-service dive shop,
which offers sales of equipment, repairs and ser-
vice by master technicians, charter boat offerings,
and training to become a certified scuba diver.
'To get what we call the basic open-water certi-
fication, and that's what you need to be allowed to
dive, takes four to seven days of training," Owner
Steve Jones explained. "It really depends on a
person's skills. How quickly they pick things up."
There are factors besides time in becoming
certified to scuba dive in the Gulf. "Scuba diving
is conditioned to being in good shape. If you have
medical issues, you have to have clearance by your
doctor,' Jones explained. "Ifs important to be healthy
and in shape for scuba diving because ifs swimming
and you've got a lot of equipment, so swimming
back to the boat takes a bit of an effort"'
At the beginning of the training, Jones and his in-
structors try to be sure that scuba diving is really the
right activity. Do you hear the theme from the movie
"Jaws" in your head when you first put your feet in
the water? Scuba diving might not be for you.
"People that are apprehensive in the water to
begin with, sometimes this isn't the right sport


for them," Jones added, "They want to dive, but
they're physically not capable. When you put them
in the pool, that really is the deciding point"'
The cost for training varies based on the equip-
ment you use. "The class is $300. We require that
you provide your own mask, fins and snorkel. For
comfort and fit, it's important to have your own,"
Jones explained. "You're probably going to spend
another couple of hundred bucks.You'll have a
good high-quality set of equipment for your class."
Florida West Scuba and Charters offers dive
charters to sunken ships and manmade reefs,
but its most popular charter in the Gulf waters off
Venice is the treasure hunt for shark's teeth.
"Venice is a unique area because the fossil
beds out there are exposed at about 18 to 30
feet of water," the Captain notes. "It's a constant
hunt looking for the right areas.You don't go down
there and see a neon sign. Ifs a treasure hunt."
To make sure the diving experience is a good
one for their customers, Captain Jones and his
crew spend a lot of their own time looking for
areas to dive prior to any charter trip.
For non-divers, there is a sunset cruise, with
a minimum of six passengers, offered nightly,
depending on the demand.
For more on Florida West Scuba and Charters,
including private charter possibilities and specific
directions to the shop, go to megalodoncharters.
com or call Captain Jones at 941-483-3483 or
941-486-1400.
Florida West Scuba and Charters is located at
509B Tamiami Trail N., Venice.

Slim's E

BY JON BAUMANN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
L ocated just a mile from downtown Arcadia
and antique alley is Slim's Bar-B-Q and Grill,
with two secret recipe sauces from 1957 that
makes the food a one of a kind taste treat.
"We have not made any changes in the
recipes,' said current owner and daughter of the
original Slim, Martha Clement.
"The coleslaw is still made the same way, the
potato salad, the barbecue sauces, the serving
sauce, the basting sauce is exactly the same" Ribs
are lightly smoked for 4 1/2 hours in a cooker using
Blackjack oak wood, with chicken smoked approxi-
mately an hour longer. The barbecue is served dry
with the dipping sauce on the side.
"My father called it Southern-style barbecue."
Slim Clement brought barbecue to his hometown
of Arcadia from Miami, where he was partners

3ar-B-Q and Grill


in a propane business there with his brothers.
Eating at a barbecue joint for lunch, Clement
developed the concept for what is Slim's Bar-B-Q
& Grill today, still using the original building that
Clement built approximately 55 years ago.
Martha came into the picture in 1980, taking
over the day-to-day details of the restaurant,
while Slim and his wife, Nan, cut back on their
restaurant schedule. It was Martha who devel-
oped an addition to the original building, doubling
the size of the restaurant when she took over.
Although he lived to see what his restaurant
became under his daughter's guidance in January
of 1981, Slim passed away three months later.
While Martha has made some quiet changes
in the years since, including expanding the menu
to offer fish, steaks, burgers and salads, the basic
staple has not changed. Barbecue in basting
sauce developed in 1957, served with dipping


sauce, also developed by Slim that same year.
Prepared by Bo, Martha's chief cook and right-
hand man since 1997, a combo plate of ribs,
chicken and a choice of beef, pork or turkey costs
$14.99, a half-chicken $9.99, and a rib special
$8.99, with many other choices and combos
also available. The barbecue dipping sauce itself
can be purchased for $3.95 a bottle and can be
shipped on request.
The secret to Slim's success is found in
serving a quality product in a restaurant where
cleanliness is key and customer service involves
common sense and common courtesy.
"We have an excellent staff. They're so atten-
tive to the customer," said Martha.
Slim's Bar-B-Q & Grill, located at 319 South
Brevard Ave., Arcadia, is open from 11 a.m. to
8 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and from
11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.

Kingsway Country Club: An accessible oasis


Like a welcoming oasis, Kingsway Country Club sits just off 1-75, yet in a world of its own. It's nestled in the Lake Suzy community, just off King's Highway, so it's easily accessible.
Yet, as you pass through the gates and proceed up the winding entry road lined with pristine trees and foliage, you feel as if you're miles away from civilization and the cares of everyday life.
The 18-hole, par-72, championship course boasts Tifeagle greens and a rolling terrain that makes the course both inviting and challenging. It was designed in 1976 by Ron Garl, who has designed golf
courses throughout the world and is known for creating courses that "maximize and enhance the land's natural characteristics."
Garl was contacted again in 2005 to redesign the course that had been ravaged by Hurricane Charley. "We lost 2,500 trees to Charley," said J. B. Belknap, general manager of Kingsway Country Club.
"The redesign is even more appealing to the eye," said Belknap.
Today, Kingsway has six sets of tees, ranging from 5,200 yards at the front tees to 7,100 yards at the back, championship tees. Its 18,000 square foot Old Florida style clubhouse has a majestic two-story
foyer, a fully stocked pro shop, two dining rooms, a Grille Room for soups, sandwiches and snacks, locker rooms, a game room and a covered outside veranda.
Teaching pro Adam Miller gives lessons to help you sharpen your game. Practice facilities include a driving range, chipping green, bunkers and putting green that are as well maintained as is the main
course.
If tennis is also your game, Kingsway's newly resurfaced tennis courts will accommodate you as well.
Kingsway Country Club sits in the midst of the picturesque Lake Suzy area, but is not affiliated with any community or development. The club is semi-private, offering both memberships and public play.
"Members can book tee times seven days in advance; then the public can make tee times up to four days in advance," Belknap explained. Many different membership types are available, including equity
and non-equity golf memberships and social/dining only memberships. Non-members are welcome to eat at the club after golfing.
The club hosted the Golf Week/Titlest National Senior Invitational tournament in January, and will host the Florida State Golf Association Junior Invitational in May. Throughout the year they host many
fundraising events for local charitable organizations. Their facilities and catering are also available for weddings, banquets, corporate events and business meetings.
The course is open from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., seven days a week, except for May through September, when it is closed on Mondays.
To reserve tee times or for information on memberships or facility rental, go to www.kingswaycountryclub.com or call 941-625-8898.

D'Vines Wine & Gift Emporium


BY JON BAUMANN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Opened in July of 2008 by Maureen Stasi,
D'Vines Wine & Gift Emporium, located
at 701 JC Center Court in Port Charlotte,
immediately established itself as more than a
place to buy wine.
D'Vines is an experience for wine customers,
both novice and expert alike. Considered a small
boutique wine and gift shop, offering wines that
customers would not normally find at grocery or
other stores, D'Vines allows people to taste vari-
ous wines so they can be sure the wine is right
for them before purchase.
There are wines from California, the Finger
Lakes region of NewYork, Australia, Italy, France
and many other wine regions of the world.
Stasi spent more than 30 years working in the
pharmaceutical industry When an opportunity
appeared, she took advantage of her passion for
wine to create D'Vines.
"I wanted to bring a new experience to Port
Charlotte and the surrounding areas, including
Lake Suzy and Deep Creek," Stasi said. "Every
weekend we have a tasting going on.We give
people a chance to enjoy and taste something
different"'
In addition to her affinity for wine, Stasi is a


creative force, with an attention to detail that
drives the special atmosphere found at D'Vines.
While wine is the star of the shop, other offerings
accent the wines. Pairings include both milk and
dark chocolates, cigars, gourmet potato chips,
cheeses, biscuits and much more.The latest
menu item is tapas, a variety of appetizers in
Spanish cuisine.
In addition to weekly tasting and food choices,
D'Vines offers a variety of entertainment through-
out the month, including movie nights, acoustic
jams and comedy appearances.
There is so much more to this unique place,
but, like any service business, the glue that holds
it altogether is a friendly, knowledgeable staff.
"Everybody that I have working here, we're
sponges, we absorb," points out Stasi. "We have
some great wine distribution reps. We've leaned
on them a lot in the last four years. Because of
them we've survived this market and we've built
our clientele"
D'Vines is a laid back, come-as-you are place
to kick back and relax. Not just a shop, it's an
experience.
D'Vines Wine and Gift Emporium is open from
1 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

How free are these eggs?


Dear Readers: Certain
eggs are labeled "free
range" or "cage free" -
what does this really mean?
According to our friends
at the American Egg Board,
free-range eggs come
from hens that are either
raised entirely outside
or are allowed outside
when the weather is good.
These hens ideally would
have access to plants and
insects, but the time spent
outside can vary, depend-
ing on the producer.
Cage-free eggs come
from hens that are kept
inside, roaming around
the floor of a large room
or open area of a barn,
and are not typically let
outside at any time.
Both free-range and
cage-free eggs are consid-
ered to be specialty eggs,
so expect to pay a higher
purchase price. Heloise

Tasty oatmeal
Dear Heloise: As I sit
here eating my hot bowl of
oatmeal, I recall a school
morning when my kids
were little. I prepared oat-
meal, but we were out of
milk. I found that a scoop
of vanilla ice cream was a
wonderful treat on hot oat-
meal. It was delicious, and
I still enjoy it now and then
when I am not counting
calories! Thank you for all
your simple and practical
hints. Jane from Texas

Dear Heloise: My wife,
Kim, worked as a nanny for
more than 20 years. One


Hints from Heloise

of the families she worked
for would make an unusual
meatloaf. They'd take out a
pound of hamburger and
put it in a mixing bowl.
Then they'd open up the
fridge and start grabbing
leftovers like rice, barley,
veggies, an egg or two, and
anything else that they
could find, dumped it all
in and mixed well. All this
was then cooked up as
meatloaf.
The first time Kim
made meatloaf this way,
I thought she had totally
lost it. I had to eat some
humble pie, because the
meatloaf turned out re-
ally good. Kevin from
North Carolina

Basic buttermilk
Dear Heloise: I love your
column and read it daily in
the (Warren, Ohio) Tribune
Chronicle. I have a hint to
share. When I need butter-
milk for a recipe, instead of
buying a whole quart, I mix
half sour cream and half
milk. No leftover buttermilk
to store. We always seem to
use up the sour cream. This
has not failed me yet, even
in cake recipes. Linda C.,

Daughter asks if photo album

should cover all of dad's life


DEAR ABBY: My father
is turning 60 this year,
and I want to make him
a photo album with
pictures from throughout
his life. However, Dad is
widowed and remarried,
so I'm having a hard time
deciding what to do with
respect to my mother.
They were married 25
years before she died, and
they loved each other very
much. They raised two
children together, and she
was an important part of
his life.
At the same time, I have
a feeling that including
pictures of Mom may up-
set my stepmother. While
I am not close with her, I
don't want to intentional-
ly hurt her feelings. What
should I do? LAURA IN
ST. LOUIS
DEAR LAURA: You're
asking an intelligent ques-
tion and I commend you
for your sensitivity. If the
photo album is intended
to be a surprise for your
father, consider talking to
your stepmother about
the idea. It will give you
an indication of how such
a gift would be perceived
by her.
DEAR ABBY: I'm 24 and
love my parents. Mom
confided to me that she
has been seeing a high
school flame behind my
father's back. She claims
she loves this man and
said she has slept with
him, but she doesn't want
to leave the security my
father provides for her.
She swore me to secrecy
about her affair.
Meanwhile, my father
has started talking to
me about their marital
problems. He doesn't un-
derstand why Mother isn't
happy. I feel like I should
tell him, but that would
betray my mother. At the
same time, not telling him
what I know is betray-
ing him. What should I
do? CAUGHT IN THE
MIDDLE
DEAR CAUGHT IN THE
MIDDLE: Your parents
should not be confiding
their marital difficul-
ties to you. They should
attempt to resolve them
by communicating with
each other preferably


Dear Abby

with the help of a licensed
marriage counselor. That
your mother would turn
you into a co-conspirator
in her affair is despicable.
Give her a deadline to
level with your father
or tell her that you will.
He deserves to know the
truth.
DEAR ABBY: I have
fallen in love with a very
special woman. She hap-
pens to be my daughter-
in-law's mother. We are
very happy together, but
our children are extremely
upset about this. My son
and her daughter no
longer speak to us at this
point.
I feel it's my life and I
shouldn't live it for the
kids, nor would I want
them to live their lives
for me. Is it wrong for me
to be with her, or are the
kids overreacting? IN
LOVE IN KENTUCKY
DEAR IN LOVE: The
"kids" are overreacting,
and they shouldn't be
trying to blackmail the
two of you into doing
what they prefer. It is
your life, and just as
you wish your son and
daughter-in-law every
happiness, they should
be doing the same for
you. This situation is not
as unusual as they think,
and they should not be
judging or punishing
you, because you are do-
ing nothing wrong.
To receive a collection
ofAbby's most memorable
- and most frequently
requested poems and
essays, send your name

ris, IL 61054-0447. Ship-

"Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for
ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter,
but within they are full of extortion and excess."-
Matthew 23:25.
God is more concerned with the heart than with
outward show. If the heart is right our actions will
show it. Serve the Lord because you love Him.

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


I HOROSCOPE I
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Living large is a frame of
mind, as well as a matter of economics. Adventures
aren't cheap, but you'll continue on because you
have a feeling that the experience is worth the cost.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).You are creative, and
your whims will bring magic into your world. So
dare to takea flight of fancy. You'll wind up in a
fascinating place because you went off on this
tangent.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Let people know how
you reallyfeel. Be specific. Expressing yourself in


euphemistic terms won't communicate what you
need from others. Exactness gets your needs met.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). What you believe about
life may be true, and it may not be true. Either way,
those beliefs are essential to your daily actions,
habits, behaviors and attitudes.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You don't always feel the
need to take full credit for the marvelous outcomes
you create. Sometimes you even give others more
credit than they deserve in order to raise morale.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).You're slightly concerned


and friendly distractions abound. Don't let your wor-
ries get the best of you or make you edgy.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23).You'll have a vivid vision
of what your life should be, taking into account your
desires and inclinations.This may be the idealized
version, but it's certainly something to shoot for.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).You know enough to
continue a project on your own, and yet you do
what only the truly savvy would do: ask for more
opinions and information.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).You don't usually


makes all the difference.This is one of those occa-
sions. You'll do your best when you're with someone
who inspires you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.19). Even though your
to-do list is long, you're able to approach things with
a fun-loving mood. It takes a high level of emotional
intelligence to maintain this stellar attitude.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).You like getting
feedback because you know it helps you improve
in ways you couldn't have seen on your own. Being
able to accept feedback and use it constructively


about getting yourworkdone in a timely manner, need a lot of outside motivation, but occasionally it gives you an advantage over your competition.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).You'll be near someone
you admire, and you'll take notes. You'll learn from
this person's approach to life, but mostly you'll
absorb the general essence of this person.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (April 25). Enjoy all the fawn-
ing and presents you get today!Through the next six
weeks, you'll be recognized for your unique qualities
and truly novel approach to relationships. You'll
bring zesty energy to your work and be noticed and
promoted for this. Improvements in fitness happen
through June and July. Aries and Libra people adore
you. Your lucky numbers are: 15, 20,5,16 and 32.

Opening lead: Eight of O

In 1981, Bobby Levin of Aventura,
Fla., at the tender age of 24, became
the youngest player ever to win the
Bermuda Bowl, emblematic of the
world team championship. Here he is
some years later at work in the Life
Master Pairs Championship.
The auction is routine. After the
heart fit was located, Levin made a
game try with two spades, declined
by North. West led the eight of
diamonds, ducked in dummy and
East's jack was won with the ace. The
deuce of clubs was led to the eight,


the queen and ace, and back came a
trump, taken on the board with the
jack.
The club three was led to the five,
nine and ten and West, who could not
afford to lead another diamond,
persevered with clubs and declarer
ruffed East's king. The outstanding
trumps were drawn, bringing about
this position with the lead in dummy:

The jack of clubs was led. Both
opponents let go a spade, as did
declarer. Now declarer cashed the ace
of spades and exited with a spade. No
matter which defender won the trick,
the forced diamond return would
establish the fulfilling trick in that
suit for declarer. Try it.
