Airport comp plan amendment OK'd




Mayor: 'I think it is a change for the good'


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Venice City Council voted to for-
ward a comprehensive plan amend-
ment related to the airport to the state
for comments, but it won't include a
policy statement ensuring the city won't
condemn homes, or extra policies that
promote compatibility, as some resi-
dents had hoped.
The amendment goes next to the
Florida Department of Economic Op-
portunity for its review, before coming
back to council for final action.
"I have not found any arguments that
persuade me that this plan should be
changed," said Council Member Jim
Bennett, the lone vote against forward-
ing the comp plan amendment to
FDEO.
"I have no problem with a policy
(stating) the city will not voluntarily


take a condemnation."
Council Member Kit McKeon said he
could support such a policy statement,
but not in the comp plan.
Mayor John Holic agreed.
"I think it's a change for the good,"
Holic said of the amendment. "One
edict we gave to staff was to streamline
the comp plan and remove some of the
studies that were unfunded, and por-
tions that were not necessary. We can
talk about noncondemnation, but not
in the comp plan."
Council's action went against the
Planning Commission's recommenda-
tions to include the policy statements.
The commission essentially felt it
wouldn't hurt to leave those community
assurances in the plan.
But staff, echoing Florida Department
of Transportation comments and those
of Linda Shelley, one of Florida's leading

Carlesimo announces for second term


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Emilio Carlesimo an-
nounced Friday he will seek
a second three-year term on
Venice City Council in Novem-
ber.
He replaced Rick Tacy, who
term-limited out, in Seat No. 3
in 2009.
Carlesimo, who ran unsuc-
cessfully for council in 2008,
came into office in 2009 on
a platform that didn't share
much in common with the
council led by then-mayor Ed
Martin. Carlesimo was on the
losing end of many conten-
tious votes in his first year,
mostly related to the airport.
That changed in 2010 when
Mayor John Holic and two
other more pro-business
candidates, Jeanette Gates and
Bob Daniels, took office.
"Looking back at my
campaign from 2009 and


the promises I
made," Car-
lesimo said,
"we are doing
exactly what we
committed to
do and we have
accomplished
a lot in the last
two and a half


CARLESIMO


years, thanks to this effective
city council's forward progress
and responsiveness to the
issues."
Carlesimo was outspoken
against taking positions that
invited lawsuits. He supported
a balanced budget without
tapping into reserves, and
encouraged efforts to keep Fire
Station No. 3 open when cuts
threatened service levels.
He supported efforts to
move beyond the airport
"squabble" by "resolving issues
affecting its maintenance, util-
ity and safety," he said.
When Carlesimo felt council


was dragging its feet over the
issue of eliminating free health
perks for a few elected officials
and charter officers, he began
a petition drive to get it on the
ballot. While the petition drive
petered out, it put pressure on
council. Ultimately, a referen-
dum passed eliminating those
benefits, part of a comprehen-
sive overhaul of city health in-
surance benefits implemented
at council's direction.
Carlesimo, a retired fire-
fighter, knocked on more than
4,000 doors in seeking office.
It helped him develop his
platform, he said.
This year he's come up with
a "green" election gimmick -
no campaign signs.
"I am taking a unique and
perhaps unprecedented step,"
Carlesimo said. "I will not put
up one of the hundreds of
small campaign signs unless
an opposing candidate places
the first sign."


"My goal is to minimize the
visual result of three months
of election signs every year. At
this time I have no intention
to purchase or place any re-
election signs."
Whether an opponent ac-
cepts the challenge remains
to be seen. No one else has yet
announced for the seat.
Carlesimo, a 25-year resi-
dent of the city, is celebrating
his 50th anniversary with his
wife, Brenda.
"We love Venice, and our city
has a bright future," he said.
"I'm glad to be able to con-
tinue to serve."
He is the first to enter the
November 2012 race, in which
two at-large seats are open.
The seat currently held by Jim
Bennett is also open. Bennett
hasn't formally announced his
intention to run again.
The general election is
Nov. 6.

Fishman surprised


not to be reappointed


By CHRISTINE HAWES
BRADENTON HERALD
Gov. Rick Scott's decision
not to reappointVenice
businessman C.J. Fish-
man to the State College of
Florida board of trustees
just eight months after
naming him to the post sur-
prised both Fishman and
board Chair Carlos Beruff,
who was reappointed to the
board last week.
The decision also leaves
the board without a South

"I was doing the best job I
could as a board of trustees

made my deci-

the facts, not
emotion and
politics."
"I didn't
think there

our opinions,
but nonetheless, it is what it
is," Beruff said.
Scott reappointed two

PENSION POLITICS


Asleep at


the wheel
By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
Editor's Note: This is part one of a series
on city fire and police pensions.

More than 80 city firefighters, many
wearing yellow T-shirts sporting the
International Association of Fire Fighters
Local 2546 logo and Venice police officers
in uniform attended Wednesday's city
council workshop on employee pensions
at city hall.
The show of force caused one council
member to jokingly remark, "Keep your
guns holstered" while giving testimony.
By the time all sides union officials,
council and pension experts were done
giving their take on the current state of
city pensions, it was clear the city and its
unions were miles apart on how to ad-
dress the city's estimated $29 million in
unfunded pension liabilities.
Council members generally believe
there is a problem far more than can
be attributed to poor investment earnings
related to the economy that needs to
be fixed.
Union officials, on the other hand,
urged council not to take any drastic
action, saying that over time investment
earnings will return to acceptable levels
and the problem will fix itself.
The positions portend difficult labor
relations ahead as many of the pension
reforms contemplated must be negotiated
with employee unions.
On Wednesday, council asked a basic
question: How did we get here?
The answer included a lot of finger-
pointing:
Pension experts said the actuarial as-
sumptions used didn't pan out as pre-
dicted.
Actuarials said the menu of assump-
tions they provided to the pension boards,
which determine risk, were ultimately the
decision of the board.
The pension boards, whose job is to
ensure the financial integrity of the pen-
sion fund, are largely composed of future

Walk for health

By MONTY ANDREWS
GUEST WRITER
We all realize walking can be one of the
best low-impact exercises a person of any
age can do. A recent article put out by
the Mayo Clinic confirms this, but it also
points out other advantages we may not
have realized.
Walking a moderate distance at a brisk
pace four or more times a week can have
a very positive effect on the human body.
This includes the lowering of LDL (the
bad cholesterol), raises the HDL (the
good cholesterol), lowers blood pressure,
reduces the risk of and helps manage
type 2 diabetes, helps manage weight,
improves mood and helps you stay strong
and fit. All these advantages, and what is
required? Just the will and a good pair of
walking shoes.
It is recommended that prior to be-
ginning the walk you do some simple
leg-stretching exercises. Initially, walk-
ers should begin at a slow pace and
gradually, over time, pick up the pace and
distance.
For the past seven years the Saturday
Morning Walkabout group has met week-
ly to help improve their health. Each Sat-
urday morning the group takes off for a
2.5-mile walk. Recently the group passed
the 18,000 cumulative mile mark. Indi-
vidual mileage is recorded and tracked by
each person. This walk is not an end-all
exercise, but is meant to supplement
each individual's walking regimen.
Persons interested in joining are always
welcome. The group meets each Saturday
morning at 8 a.m. at Volunteer Park, one
block east of Venice Regional Medical
Center, and across the street from Gulf
Coast Community Foundation.
Need more information? Call 941-468-
8124 for details.

County tables decision on new EOC


By CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER
Dissatisfied with the
answers given to them
by staff, Sarasota County
commissioners voted 4-0
to table the discussion of
a new 911 Emergency Op-
erations Center until their
next meeting on May 8.
Commissioner Nora
Patterson withdrew from
chambers due to a pos-
sible conflict of interest.
The discussion is to
be held in the afternoon
session, beginning at
1:30 p.m., at the Robert L.
Anderson Administration
Center in South Venice.
The EOC item was up
for authorization by com-
missioners to proceed
with the final design
and construction of the
new facility. In support-
ing documents and in a
presentation to the board
by Carolyn Eastwood, a
professional engineer and
project manager, it was
clear county staff sup-
ports the 1301 Cattlemen
Road site although
staff also researched 7060
Professional Parkway as a
potential site.
Eastwood compared


the total estimated
costs of both sites in her
presentation, with the
county-owned Cattlemen
site coming up $1,090,819
cheaper than Professional
Parkway. Cattlemen's total
cost is $16,742,214, while
Parkway's is $17,833,033.
The choice of Cattle-
men does not involve the
current administrative
complex at the same site,
according to Public Works
Director James Harriott.
If approved, the EOC site
will be located toward the
back of the 11-acre site
near the county History
Center.
The net area needed for
the new 911-EOC, includ-
ing a portion of the reten-
tion pond, is estimated to
be 6.87 acres. A two-story
facility is planned.
Commission Chair
Christine Robinson
expressed her disappoint-
ment with staff, saying she
had hoped to get informa-
tion from them to make
an informed decision.
"I do not feel I received
the information I re-
quested," Robinson said.
"I'm hoping we'll see
that (information) at the
next meeting to finish


off (the decision)."
Later, Robinson said
she had emailed a request
to staff regarding the
design criteria used. She
said she asked for the
criteria of other county
EOC sites that staff mem-
bers had used in their
research.
Robinson said she also
asked for the standards
from different sources
that county staff had
used. Instead, she said,
she was "just provided
with a composite that
staff had drafted."
Commissioner Carolyn
Mason said she was con-
cerned staff did not have
face-to-face dialogue with
property owners of sites
that had been removed
from consideration -
100 Cattlemen Road, 861
Beneva Road and 5538
Lockwood Ridge Road.
Mason asked County
Administrator Randall
Reid if staff could have
those conversations
before the next meeting.
She needed that done,
she said, "so I can make a
more informed decision."
"I can't do that today,"
Mason said.

County joins Medicaid legislation fight


By CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER
Sarasota County has
joined more than 45 coun-
ties, including Charlotte,
Manatee and DeSoto, to
fight a legislative mandate
that would force them
to pay $323.5 million
in disputed and future
Medicaid bills, regardless
of whether the claims are
legitimate.
Sarasota County
commissioners voted
5-0 Tuesday approved a
contribution of $3,500 to
support the legal effort,
initiated recently by the
Florida Association of
Counties. Their motion
also contained a provision
authorizing the county
attorney's office to assist
in the efforts of the lead
firm, Bryant Miller Olive


of Tampa.
Manatee
County
officially
joined the
coalition
of counties
late Tuesday
night, FAC REID
spokes-
woman Cragin Mosteller
said. Manatee commis-
sioners two weeks ago had
authorized their county
attorney's office to decide
whether to join.
Gulf County onWednes-
day became the latest
county to join the effort,
she said.
The FAC said last week
it will sue the state over
the new law.
The lawsuit is on track
to be filed by the end of
this month, Mosteller said.
The law, HB 5301, gives


the state authority to with-
hold a county's portion of
the half-cent sales tax for
past claims, and revenue
sharing for future claims.
"It would mean we
would be retrospectively
reviewed by the state and
potentially have over
$5 million to $6 million in
payments, plus a continu-
ing inequitable and un-
verifiable bill in the future
if we accept the status
quo of inaccurate billing,"
Sarasota County Adminis-
trator Randall Reid wrote
in an emailWednesday.
"The issue is not just over
a single one year, but a
retroactive requirement
extending back to pay
balances from past years.
If this erroneous balance
is redistributed, some
counties will benefit while
others will get more bills


assigned to them."
County Attorney Ste-
phen DeMarsh brought
up the subject to commis-
sioners at Tuesday's meet-
ing in Sarasota. In answer
to a question by Commis-
sioner Nora Patterson,
DeMarsh said the amount
of the contribution was
determined by popula-
tion. He said the lowest
contribution amount
would be $1,000, and the
highest $5,000.
DeMarsh, in an earlier
memo to commissioners,
says, "Counties that dispute
the amount owed will be
billed 100% of the amount
certified by the Agency for
Health Care Administration
(AHCA). Counties that do
not dispute the amount
owed will be billed 85% of
the amount certified by
AHCA"


What makes the man-
date frustrating, county
officials say, is that it
obliges counties to pay
for bills that don't belong
to them. Under the state's
Medicaid billing system,
counties are being billed
for patients who are not
county residents mul-
tiple times in many cases,
officials said.
The counties blame
the debt on glitches in
the state software sys-
tem that have resulted in
thousands of errors and
duplicate invoices.
"Even after five years,
the average error rate is
26 percent," Mosteller
said. "Can you imagine
if your bank statement is
wrong that often?"
The Tampa Bay Times
conit ilbe, it to this report.

John F.
Lamoureux
John F "Jack" Lamou-
reux was born Aug. 2,
1930, in Akron, Iowa,
the young-
est son of
Leonard
S Lamoureux
S and Loretta
'--' (Boden)
Nt Lamoureux.
S' He died
Tuesday,
April 24, 2012.
.*- He attended
-''-;:' school there
and graduated
from Akron
High School in 1948.
He was very involved in
sports and one of the
many highlights in high
school was being se-
lected to attend Hawkeye
(Iowa) Boys State in sum-
mer 1947. He joined the
U.S. Marine Corps, re-
ceived his commission in
the U.S. Infantry and was


honorably discharged in
1949. He enrolled in col-
lege at the University of
South Dakota in 1949. He
married Rita Ann Dreier,
daughter of Helen (Ken-
nedy) Dreier and Jack
Dreier, on Sept. 6, 1951.
Their two oldest chil-
dren, Renee and Roberta,
were born while Jack was
at U.S.D. He was a mem-
ber of Lamda Chi Alpha
fraternity. He graduated
in January 1954. After
college, his family grew
to six children, adding
Theodore, Timothy, Rise
and Regina.
Upon graduation, Jack
became a field repre-
sentative for Proctor &
Gamble. He moved his
family to Minnesota. In
August 1956, he joined
his friend Pat Rogers in
the group health insur-
ance business. When
Jack retired as president
of Pat Rogers Associates
in 1987, the company
had become one of the
largest brokerage firms in
the country, with offices
in 26 states. He always
maintained that the suc-
cess of the company was
due to great partners and


the best employees.
Jack and Rita moved
to Florida in 1978. They
became members of
Epiphany Cathedral and
Jacaranda West Country
Club.
Jack was an avid golfer
both in Minnesota (Way-
zata Country Club) and
Florida. He had shelves
filled with trophies from
various tournaments
- each with a special
story. He also enjoyed a
regular gin game with his
friends. Jack was known
most for his kind and
generous spirit. He was
a supporter of Loveland
Center in Venice and In-
terfaith Outreach in Min-
nesota, as well as many
college foundations and
children's charities. He
received numerous acco-
lades for his philanthro-
py over the years. He was
always concerned about
the "little guy." He had a
heart bigger than life.
Jack's two loves were
his family and his faith.
There was never an
obstacle that these two
could not conquer. Jack's
last few years were filled
with health issues and


medical miracles. His
family counts their bless-
ings that they were able
to have him these last
two years years filled
with visits from chil-
dren and grandchildren,
years filled with love and
laughter.
Jack is survived by his
loving wife of 61 years,
Rita, his six children, Re-
nee and husband, Dave

OUR VIEW


It's turtle time, so be thoughtful


Just up the coast from Yemen, where
the clean desert sands meet the Ara-
bian Sea, is one of the world's central
habitats for nesting loggerhead sea
turtles, the Sultinate of Oman.
Each year, tourists flock to Oman's
Masirah, Dhofar and Ad Daymaniyat
islands to watch thousands of log-
gerheads come ashore to dig holes,
lay eggs and lumber back into the sea.
Roughly two months later, the newly
hatched wigglers then make a wild
scramble to the water, presumably to
safety.
Far from it. If these turtle babies are
lucky enough to avoid birds of prey,
dogs and foxes in the first minutes of
their lives on shore, they'll soon en-
counter many other predators below
the surface. Scientists estimate the
chances a sea turtle will survive from
egg to sexual maturity are at least one
in 1,000, perhaps as high as one in
2,500. A long, strange trip, indeed.


Oman is an interesting place, but
you don't have to travel halfway
around the world to see the annual
turtle show. The other international
hotspot for loggerheads is right here
in Southwest Florida.
Sea turtle-nesting season officially
begins Tuesday and extends until
Oct. 31. Not heeding the "official"
calendar, turtles already have begun
coming ashore. A loggerhead showed
up on Knight Island early last week; a
couple of days later, another made a
nest on Manasota Key.
Expect more. Hope that this will be
another strong season for turtle nest-
ing, and do what you can to make this
a hospitable environment. It's not all
that difficult.
Loggerhead turtles are an officially
threatened species, protected under
the federal Endangered Species Act.
Under state statutes, it is illegal to
possess, disturb, mutilate, destroy, sell


or harass sea turtles, nests or eggs.
No doubt our readers are familiar
with the case of the Manasota Key
woman convicted of flouting the law
and disturbing a turtle nest a clear
example of what not to do.
Our own volunteer turtle-protection
army, the CoastalWildlife Club, has
been busily mobilizing for another
season of recording and staking nests.
You can help too.
Stay far away if you see a turtle
emerge from the Gulf. Do not shine
flashlights on turtles. Don't make loud
noises. Don't take photos with a flash.
Local ordinances require that beach
furniture be picked up at night. Fill in
large holes in the beach. Don't build
bonfires on the beach; don't shoot
off fireworks. Bright lights and loud
noises are disorienting.
All beachfront lights should be
shielded or turned away from the
water, per county ordinances. Low-


intensity amber lights are permit-
ted. Contact the city, county or the
state Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (myfwc.com) for more
information.
People who live near the beach
need to be careful when opening the
blinds at night. Indoor lights inadver-
tently shining toward the beach can
be as harmful as outdoor lights. Motel
operators and condominium owners
should make sure renters are aware of
the regulations and basic beach rules.
Local turtle patrollers also warn
about the dangers of letting dogs run
free on beaches at night. Dogs can
scare off turtles or dig up fresh nests.
They are your responsibility.
Southwest Florida is a special place
for loggerheads and other sea turtles.
We are lucky to have such a wonder
of nature here. Respect it, appreciate
it and help make sure the cycle
continues.


Water-management


laws fine-tuned


n Florida, water is the state's
resource, and Florida has
a unique system of water
management, formulated in the
1960s after flooding from hur-
ricanes devastated the state.
That system of water manage-
ment has developed over the
years and today Chapter 373,
Florida Statutes, outlines the
mission and related responsi-
bilities of Florida's five water
management districts: flood
protection, water supply, water
protection and natural systems
restoration. District governing
boards, appointed by the gover-
nor and confirmed by the Sen-
ate, provide guidance on policy
and budget decisions for these
regional agencies to ensure that
taxpayer dollars are allocated
wisely.
During the 2011 legislative
session, legislation passed that
capped the maximum amount
of ad valorem revenue that water
management districts could
collect. The legislation was in
response to significant growth
in water management district
budgets and the reserves that the
districts accumulated during the
economic boom, coupled with
some controversial land acquisi-
tions and regulatory decisions.
Unfortunately, the cap would
guarantee that without legislative
action each year, the amount of
revenue that could be collected
would not change in subsequent
years, even with normal growth,
which posed long-term prob-
lems in meeting the water supply
and environmental demands of
the state.
The Senate recognized this
problem, so during the 2012
session we revisited the issue
and passed SB 1986. Gov. Scott
recently signed SB 1986 into law.
The legislation strikes a bal-
ance between maintaining a
level of oversight by both the
governor and Legislature while
allowing the opportunity for a
water management district's
budget to grow over time with


the market. The legislation
removes both the revenue cap
as well as the requirement that
a district revert to the prior year
revenue if no new limit is set by
the Legislature.
The removal of a revenue cap
is critical for the districts to meet
their statutory obligations by en-
abling them to have the oppor-
tunity to generate the ad valorem
funding necessary to be able to
re-invest those funds into our
communities to meet our water
needs far into the future.
It is estimated that it takes
five to seven years to bring a
new water supply source online.
This can include land acquisi-
tions, design, permitting and
construction. It is also extremely
expensive.
As an example, the facility and
reservoir expansion for the Peace
River/Manasota RegionalWater
Supply Authority, which serves
residents in my Senate district,
cost approximately $184 million
to complete and is producing
15 million gallons per day of wa-
ter for the four-county region the
authority serves. Of that, more
than $57 million was funded
by the Southwest FloridaWater
Management District, more than
$25 million came from the state
and $9 million in federal funding.
This is a true partnership aimed
at ensuring an adequate water
supply for the region and with-
out the significant investment
from the water management dis-
trict, along with the state and our
federal partners these projects
would not have become a reality.
As our state continues its eco-
nomic recovery, planning for and
funding water-supply and water-
quality projects projects that
restore our natural systems and
those that protect our residents
from flooding are vital. These
projects help our economy grow,
create jobs and ensure a healthy
environment.
Water management in Florida
is not a perfect system but it is
a solid one, forward-thinking
and designed to ensure that all
Floridians are protected, our
environment is protected and
we have enough water supplies
to meet our demands long into
the future. Passage of SB 1986
is a step in the right direction
to continue to ensure that our
progressive system of water
management continues.

resents Florida Senate District 23.

Preserve the park


GUEST COLUMN

Challenger Baseball's request
for fields for special-needs
players came before Venice City
Council in October 2008, for
land and city support. Chal-
lenger asked for one rubberized
field to be built. When a con-
ceptual plan was finally submit-
ted, in 2010, the plan had grown
to three fields (one rubberized
and two regulation Little League
fields), a concession stand,
expanded parking, a handi-
capped-accessible playground,
bleachers and a retention pond,
all to be placed inside 13 acres
of Pinebrook Park.
Nine months ago, a letter was
sent to Challenger by Venice's
planning director indicating
that Challenger had not fol-
lowed proper procedures and
requested that it do so. As of
this date, there is no record of it
complying with his request.
The city's Parks and Rec-
reation and Environmental
advisory boards have not
endorsed building this complex
in Pinebrook Park. In fact, the
Environmental Advisory Board
unanimously passed the follow-
ing motion at its May 25, 2011,
meeting:" Prior to any future
changes in land or recreational
uses atWellfield Park, the
city of Venice will perform or
require environmental stud-
ies to determine the impact of
the proposed changes. Such
studies shall include, but are
not limited to, wildlife and
vegetative surveys, soil testing,
drainage impacts to Curry Creek
and other studies, including an
alternative site analysis."
In July 2011, Challenger
agreed that its requirements


could be met with two fields
on an alternate site. About six
months ago, a meeting was
held with Jim Hanks and Rich
Carroll, Challenger Baseball
leaders, to show them a piece
of land adjacent to two existing
ball fields in the Wellfield Park
area. Both men indicated at
that time that this area would
work for the Challenger Base-
ball complex.
Subsequently, Dr. Nancy
Woodley, acting city manager,
and Council Member Bob
Daniels facilitated several staff
meetings to resolve concerns
and issues that were brought
up by the Challenger group.
Prior to Dr. Woodley's depar-
ture, she indicated through an
email that all issues had been
resolved among the city of Ven-
ice, the county and Challenger,
and that Challenger could
proceed with the city planning
process. The land would be
leased to the Challenger group,
but both the former and pres-
ent council indicated that all
construction expenses, costs
and ongoing maintenance
would be the sole responsibility
of the Challenger group.
Now the Challenger group
says that area will not work,
even though its architect was
able to fit its complex in that
space and the parking and
drainage issues had been
resolved.
Mr. Carroll has indicated
that the $800,000 cost to build
the baseball complex will be
supported by local people;
however, he has failed to pro-
vide the city with any letters
indicating support. In fact, in
the spring of 2011, the city had
to provide $4,000 for a survey


of Pinebrook Park because the
city was told that Challenger
had no money.
In March 2012, the Miracle
League of Manasota (Manatee
and Sarasota Counties) complet-
ed one rubberized field for spe-
cial needs kids in north Sarasota
at a cost of $1.3 million. Will it be
possible to build all of the things
on Challenger's conceptual plan
for a mere $800,000? What hap-
pens if it can only complete a
portion of the plan? Will Venice
taxpayers have to finish it? Chal-
lenger has promised to maintain
the field in perpetuity. That's
going to require a great deal of
money annually. Where will it
come from?
We believe thatVenice Chal-
lenger Baseball is a worthy and
deserving organization. We all
support providing baseball fields
for the disabled. The problem
lies in where the fields are pro-
posed to be located.We think
Pinebrook Park should be kept
as pristine as possible and con-
tinue to provide a "walk in the
woods" and a habitat for wildlife
to live in and raise their young.
There's no other park in
Venice like Pinebrook. Where
else can you see a bobcat and
her young, gopher tortoises,
eagles, ospreys and a variety of
songbirds? The park has been
a nature park for more than
30 years and is used daily by
people from all over Venice.
School groups regularly use
the park to learn about nature.
How can the leaders of Venice
justify cutting down 13 acres of
this park for a baseball com-
plex? The answer is, they can't.

WEEKEND EDITION APRIL 28, 2012


The good the money can do


My late father-in-
law was a Presby-
terian minister,
and I well remember stand-
ing in the family receiving
line following his funeral
years ago, that person after
person said that Dad had
affected their lives deeply
by his kindness or his
advice or his support or his
generosity.
I had expected to hear
people talking about his
powerful sermons or the
size of the mission budget
in his church, something
he was quite proud of. But
instead, I heard about how
Dad helped people in ways
that they appreciated, very
individually and personally,
and that made a difference
in their lives.
And so it is with Planta-
tion Community Foun-
dation. We worked hard
all year to be very visible
in our Plantation Golf &
Country Club community
and beyond, and to raise
$120,000 in advance of our
Grant Award Luncheon
on April 12, when we an-
nounced this year's 41 not-
for-profit grantees. They
touch those they serve to
feed, or protect, or teach, or
inspire or to love making
a difference in the end, one
life at a time.



PARK
FROM PAGE 8
have received hundreds of
emails, letters and phone
calls indicating residents'
wishes not to disturb this
park. The Audubon So-
ciety and the Sierra Club
have voiced their opposi-
tion to Challenger's plan.
Shouldn't our city leaders
listen to their constituents
on this issue?
The goal listed in the
Venice Comprehensive
Plan for Parks and Public
Spaces is as follows:
"Ensure that Venice's
public spaces, parks
and recreational re-
sources enhance the city's
neighborhoods, sense of
place and livability, while
preserving and protecting
environmental integrity
and sensitive habitats."
During this time when
the emphasis is on "going
green," being healthy and
getting back to nature,
why would city leaders al-
low the destruction of this
natural wooded area with
animal habitats, trails and
shaded exercise areas?
Before anything is
decided, we ask that
city leaders consider
and thoroughly research
the ramifications of the
destruction of part of Pin-
ebrook Park and exactly
what effect a rubberized
ball field will have on the
environment as it dete-
riorates and emits toxins.

We and our grantees are
partners in this enterprise.
We offer them resources
through our work, and
they are the arms and the
legs and the heart in this
partnership.
This week I want to shine
a light on those of our
grantees who care for the
hungry and homeless here
in South County and note
how our grant to each will
be used.
Heart of Mercy Ministries
is an outreach program for
homeless and low-income
families. They hold month-
ly events outdoors in fields
under canopies to dis-
tribute food, clothing and
financial help, if available.
There are no paid employ-
ees and the events are run
by volunteers. Much of the
food is donated by Publix
and some is purchased by
the ministry. Our grant will
be used to purchase new
canopies to facilitate its
outreach events.
All Faiths Food Bank is
the major supplier of food
to all nonprofit organiza-
tions that distribute food
in Sarasota and Desoto
counties. The organization's
mission is "To feed those
in need, reduce food waste
and educate the communi-
ty about the issues of hun-
ger and nutrition." Each
year, All Faiths provides
turkeys to low-income indi-
viduals and families for the
Thanksgiving holiday. Our
grant will be used to pur-
chase turkeys for qualified
South County residents.
Senior Friendship
Centers is an agency


Join now for just $211 for 4 months for the entire

www.SouthCountyFamilyYMCA.org


The Y is a leading nonprofit organization committed to strengthening our
community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.


dedicated to helping older
adults live with dignity
and respect by providing
services to improve their
quality of life. Nutrition
programs have been a
cornerstone of the Senior
Friendship Centers in
Venice. The program pro-
vides a hot, nutritionally
balanced meal to assist
older individuals to live
independently with better
health through improved
nutrition. Its kitchen is in
much need of updating
to support this endeavor.
With our grant, a new
stove will be purchased,
facilitating the delivery of
350-400 meals each week.
Trinity Presbyterian
Church's Community As-
sistance Ministry is a
multi-faceted outreach
program serving people
in need in Venice and
Nokomis. Its food pantry is
open three days per week.
A family may request one
week's worth of food each
month, and the homeless
may come once a week.
Last year more than 14,000
people were served at
CAM.
Due to the substantial
increase in the number of
people to feed, along with
reduced food donations,
CAM began buying food
in bulk and repackaging
it into family-size por-
tions. Under the terms of
its contract with All Faiths
Food Bank and the Feeding
America Program, all such
repacking must be done on
stainless-steel work surfac-
es. Part of our grant funds
will be used to purchase


and install two stainless-
steel countertops and one
stainless-steel mobile cart.
The balance will be used to
help purchase food.
Christ United Methodist
Church serves as a distri-
bution point for pre-pack-
aged food for needy South
County families at no cost.
All food provided by this
initiative is locally grown
and distributed at Christ
United Methodist Church
by volunteers. Food is pur-
chased for the program


at roughly half the cost
of similar purchases in a
retail food store, in effect
doubling the amount of
our grant.
As I hope you can see,
we and our grantees
together do truly "Make a
Difference" here in South
County. In future columns
in this series, I plan to
continue to share with
you the stories of the won-
derful, inspiring and often
life-changing work being
done by our grantees.


Membership in our foun-
dation and participation in
our fundraising events are
open to everyone. If you are
interested in joining us, or
would like to be notified of
our events, drop us a line
at Plantation Community
Foundation, 500 Rockley

love to hear from you.

SUN NEWSPAPERS 9A






10A SUN NEWSPAPERS


APRIL 28, 2012 WEEKEND EDITION


ARE TOO MANY EVENTS HELD IN DOWNTOWN VENICE? CALL US AT 941-207-1111.


The menu. I'm calling about
the call on the carnival criticiz-
ing the Italian American Club
for not having enough of a va-
riety of foods. I take issue with
that. As a member, I would
like to know what sausage and
peppers, meatballs and pasta
with a great sauce would be
considered if it's not an Italian
food? Fried dough is consid-
ered an Italian pastry, not
meant to be a meal. In addi-
tion, there were delicate Italian
pastries offered by the Italian
bakery and other Italian foods.
Avoidance. I'm an 81-year-
old lady and I do not like the
roundabout. I try to avoid it
whenever I can, especially with
all the snowbird traffic. My
friends don't like it either.
Ugh. I've been reading the
Gondolier Sun for many years
and what I saw recently turned
my stomach. On the Around
Town page, in the bottom
left-hand corner, was the ugli-
est woman I've ever seen in
my life. A picture there in full
color. Thank you, Bob Vedder,
you've ruined my corn flakes.
Flowing. The roundabout is
an ideal situation and saves tons
of gasoline because of the non-
stop process of going through
the intersection. The only real


Let 'em


Have It

problem is the training of the
people who have never used
roundabouts before; and the
more elderly they are, the more
trouble they have with it. A great
number of cars go through that
intersection and when people
are comfortable with it, it flows
very, very well.
Wasted. The roundabout
was totally unnecessary and
confusing and probably a big
waste of money.


Frightening. My husband
and I were on the roundabout
last night and witnessed a typi-
cal accident, and I'm sure it's
happening very often. It's the
dumbest thing they ever put
into Venice and frightening,
I'm sure, for most people.
Terrified. That roundabout
terrifies me. I avoid it at all costs.
I much prefer the intersection at
Center Road and Jacaranda. Not
only are they difficult to use, but
they take up a lot more acreage
than a traditional intersection. I
just think they're a terrible idea
for older drivers.
Trouble. The Venice round-
about has one good point it
takes less time to get through
the intersection. But it has
one very bad point that is only
waiting to become a serious
accident. The inner circle, or left
lane, has dotted lines allowing
the car in the left lane to exit the
roundabout to the right from
the left lane, directly in front of a
car in the right lane, or outer cir-
cle, that is still going around the
roundabout. The dotted lines
are misleading and the short
solid line does not connect to
anything to give clear directions.
Put the right lines out there so
we can understand it.
Best choice. In response to the


the liberal bigots who questioned
the article by Bishop Dewayne
explaining the Catholic teaching
and the sanctity of all human life
from conception to natural death:
We as Catholics believe that the
so-called choice of abortion,
which kills a developing baby, is
murder and always an evil choice.
If a woman does not want to
have a baby, her best choice is to
refrain from any sexual activity
Sayno. EnvisionVenice's strate-
gic plan 2030. Goal 4, No. 1 states:
Evaluate relocation of public
works utilities and fire facilities
away from the Seaboard area.
What they don't tell you is that
that relocation includes all of the
businesses in the Seaboard indus-
trial area also. Venice City Council
plans to put hundreds of Venice
citizens out of work and spend
millions of dollars so council can
hand over prime real estate along
the Intracoastal and Hatchett
Creek to their developer buddies.
We as citizens ofVenice just need
to say no to that.
Editor's Note: The Envision
Venice update to the city's com-
prehensive plan contemplates the
eventual relocation of the indus-
trial area and its redevelopment,
much like the relocation of the
cement plants and the conver-
sion of the land into a park. It is


not funded and is not under way.
The update process took began
in 2003 and concluded with state
approval in November 2010.
Wrong people. I would like to
make a comment about the po-
lice department having a hotline
of sorts for seniors terrible, ter-
rible waste of money. The police
department should be doing
police work and not social service
work. I do believe strongly that
the Senior Friendship Centers
should provide that service. I have
been part of such a service in
Massachusetts, and it works very,
very well with volunteers who
need something to do and who
could provide a vital service. Not
the police department.

BASEBALL CLASS 7A-DISTRICT 11


District runner-up


FINAL

Five-run

seventh inning

sinks Venice
By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

A quiet game for five innings
erupted into chaos over the final
two innings.
When the dust settled, Venice
found itself on the short end of a
7-5 score as Manatee scored five
runs in the top of the seventh in-
ning to claim the Class 7A-District
11 championship Friday night at
Venice High.
Venice (19-8) plays at Martin
County (26-1) in the Class 7A-Re-
gion 3 quarterfinal May 2. Manatee
(18-9) hosts Port St. Lucie (17-8) on
the same day.
Just one run and two hits oc-
curred over the first five innings
combined.
Over the final two innings, the
teams combined for 11 hits and
11 runs.
Venice scored three runs in the
bottom of the sixth inning to take a
4-2 lead, but Manatee wasn't done.
Correlle Prime and Tyler Beeman
hit consecutive singles offVenice
ace Cooper Hammond, who
pitched 6 2/3 inning inWednes-
day's 2-1 11-inning win over
Sarasota. Trevor Beeman hit a slow
roller to third base. A high throw
to second base trying for the force
out sailed into right-center field for
a three-base error, tying the game
at 4-4 and moving Beeman to third
base.
"We had a bunt play on and
they didn't bunt and hit a ground-
ball, which put some of our guys
out of position because they
were expecting a bunt," said

SEMIFINAL


Longhi's hit

lifts Venice in

11 innings

By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

Playing year-round in Florida,
Venice's Nick Longhi has many
chances to bat in pressure-
packed situations.
The junior thinks the pressure
makes him focus more.
Longhi focused during his last
two at-bats Wednesday, and it
helped lift the Indians to a 2-1
victory in 11 innings over county
rival Sarasota in the Class 7A-
District 11 semifinal at Venice
High.
It was Venice's seventh one-run
victory of the season and 11th
one-run game overall.
The 11-inning game was the
longest for Venice since April 14,
2010 (a 1-0 win over Palmetto).
It's the longest postseason
game for the Indians since a 3-2
win overValrico Bloomingdale
in the district semifinals April 29,
2003. In the last 16 years, Venice
has played only two 11-inning
games.
The two-and-one-half-hour
pitching duel was tense and
drama-filled, from diving stops
by infielders to scoops at first
base to a play at the plate.
"It's going to be one of the
most memorable ones," said
Faulkner about the win. "We
have a difficult district. I told my
team, if you can get through the
district, the rest of it will take care
of itself."
"It's got to feel great for those
seniors because it's another game

TRACK & FIELD CLASS 3A-REGION 3 MEET


Leone qualifies for states


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

The smile on her face and tears
in her eyes said it all: Venice's Liz
Leone is a state qualifier.
The sophomore, who was
seeded 1lth, placed fourth in
discus in the Class 3A-Region 3
meet Thursday night at Charlotte
High in Punta Gorda.
Leone is Venice's only repre-
sentative at states, as the top four
finishers in each event qualify for
the Class 2A FHSAA Track and
Field Finals May 4 at the Uni-
versity of North Florida's Hodges
Stadium in Jacksonville.
Leone's toss of 103 feet,
2 inches on her second throw
in the finals was 2 inches better
than fifth place and just 2 inches
short of third place.
"I didn't feel great today but it
was good enough," said Leone.
"I'm so happy. I just cried over
there. Oh my god, it's going to
mean so much. "I am so ... I can't
even explain it. The feeling. I
want to cry right now.
"From the beginning of the
season, this has been my whole
goal. I know that competition
at states will be really hard but I
just wanted to make it to states
so bad."
"She is so young and her
technique is still so raw," said
Venice girls coach Brenda Clark.
"Just a little fine-tuning from the
thrower's coaches, I think she
could just be outstanding in that
event."
Last year, Leone didn't even get
out of districts.
In a year, Leone has increased
her total nearly 20 feet, from
88 feet last year to her personal
best of 107 feet this season.
Leone credits being stronger
and having better form.
"That is a lot but she still has
more in her," said Clark. "She is
just very powerful. She was elat-
ed. It was wonderful for her and


I am so happy for her. She has
already texted me like five times
about next week (states). Good to
see that kind of excitement."
Leone barely made it into the
finals, based on the top eight
throws after the two flights of
preliminaries.
Although Venice only has
one representative at states, the
young boys and girls teams came
close in a few other events.
Senior Thalia Meza was busy
on the rubber track as she ran
the 4x800- and 4x400-meter
relays, which placed sixth, as well
as taking 12th in the 800-meter
run.
"Thalia has had a wonderful
athletic season between the three
sports cross country, soccer
and track," said Clark. "I think
she's had a great year. She is a
great kid and I wish her the best."
Meza ran anchor leg on the
4x800-meter relay team with
teammates KellyWhite, Piper
Francis and Taylor McCutcheon
with a 10:01.67, which is just off
the school record.
"The kids work so hard and it's
so hard to get out of this region,"
said Clark. "So much talent here.
They are great kids. I don't focus
on what everyone else is doing.
I am focusing on what we need
to do and get to where we want
to go. Sometimes it works and
sometimes it doesn't."
In the 4x400-meter relay, Meza
ran the opening leg, with team-
mates White, Amber Skapyak and
Iris Canas following for a per-
sonal best time of 4:11.38.
In the high jump, junior
Alex Ellis placed seventh in the
high jump after clearing 5 feet
on her second attempt. How-
ever, her tries at 5-foot-2 were
unsuccessful.
"The one I felt bad for today
was Alex," said Clark. "I knew
she needed to get 5-2 in the high
jump to keep going and it just
didn't happen today. She more


than capable of doing it."
In the pole vault, senior Sam-
mie Kasmirski was 10th with a
height of 8 feet, 6 inches, while
sophomore Maggie Flynn was
13th after making 8 feet.
In the team standings, the Lady
Indians were tied for 17th with 13
points. Naples Lely grabbed the
regional title with 61 points.
In the boys, the 4x800-meter
relay team came the closest to
qualifying for states, taking fifth
overall.
The foursome of sophomore
Eric Kreider, sophomore John
Cokley, sophomore Marcus
Laurin and senior David Enander
cross the line with a school-
record time of 8:15.06.
The old record was 8:15.66.
"We knew this 3A region was
going to be very difficult," said
Venice boys coach Larry Shan-
non. "We had some really close
misses. Those kids (in the 4x800)
have worked hard all year long.
They knew they had to run the
race of their life. They did and
broke the school record but were
still on the outside looking in.
Just goes to show how difficult
this region is. Hate to see the
season come to the end and no
one advance especially for the
seniors."
Individually, Kreider placed
sixth in the 400-meter dash with
a time of 51.30 seconds.
"We knew we had to go out a
little quicker because three or
four guys were going to run sub-
50 (seconds)," said Shannon. "He
had to make it up somewhere.
He is only a 10th-grader and just
a second away from the state
meet. It's something he can use
as motivation for the rest of his
career."
In the 800-meter run, En-
ander, Venice's lone senior boy at
regionals, took ninth with a time
of 2:03.83.
"You had to be under two
minutes to get in," said Shannon.


Venice's Liz Leone grimaces as
she throws the discus in the Class
3A-Region 3 meet Thursday at
Charlotte High in Punta Gorda. Leone,
a sophomore, placed fourth with a
throw of 103 feet, 2 inches to qualify
for the Class 3A state tournament on
May 4. Leone will be Venice's lone
representative at states.

"He (Enander) fell a little short.
That race is so competitive. With
our region it makes it even more
difficult. That is a kid you never
want to see him run his last race
because he is such a great young
man and hard worker. Never
want to see a kid like that leave
your program. Hard to watch
him not advance."
Junior Quaheem Kapinski tied
for 10th in the high jump with a
height of 5 feet, 8 inches, while
Caleb Courville was 13th in the
pole vault (10 feet, 6 inches) and
BrendenWalsh was 15th in the
shot put (43 feet, 2.25 inches).
Both Venice teams are young.
"We will go through the Venice
Track Club summer program and
do the Disney meet and see what
happens," said Clark.
"We are very excited about our
youth on our track team," said
Shannon. "Future looks bright."

Faulkner about the error.
"We should have just got
the out at first base. That
didn't work for us. We just
had an error that hurt us."
After a walk, Tyler Souris
bunted to pitcher Kevin
Guthrie, who backhanded
it to catcher Rivera. How-
ever, Beeman slid under
the tag to score the go-
ahead run.
A walk and RBI singles
by Chase Sandberg and
Danny Lee gave Manatee a
7-4 cushion.
Venice made four pitch-
ing changes in the seventh
inning.
"Playing 11 innings hurt
us," said Faulkner. "We
needed to have Cooper
Hammond and not have
him throw many pitches
the other night. We were a
little thin."
Venice tried a comeback
in the bottom of the sev-
enth inning.
Colton Lightner was
hit by a pitch to lead off
the frame. Danny Raynor
reached on an infield
single. After a strikeout,
Grant Banko singled over
the shortstop to score
Lightner.
Manatee got out of the
jam with a game-ending
6-4-3 double play.
Venice opened the scor-
ing with a run in the bot-
tom of the third inning.
Junior Rex Ingerick led
off with a walk off Manatee
starter Scott Kelly. Lightner
followed with a sacrifice
bunt, moving Ingerick to
second base. A groundout
advanced Ingerick to third
base. Leadoff hitter Michael
Rivera blooped a single
over second base just out of
the reach of a sliding right
fielder to score Ingerick.
Manatee collected its
first hits of the game off
Venice starter Brandon
Elmy with a leadoff single
by Daniel Kerwin in the

top of the sixth inning.
Tyler Souris' sacrifice bunt
moved courtesy runner
Dustin McKinzie to second
base. WesleyWoodward
singled into right field to
score McKinzie with the
tying run. Cord Sandberg
followed with a single down
the right field line, moving
Woodward to third base.
Chase Sandberg hit a sac-
rifice fly to center field to
score Woodward and give
Manatee a 2-1 lead.
Venice came back with
two runs in the bottom
of the sixth inning. Rivera
reached first on an errant
throw to first base by third
baseman. Grant Banko
singled past a diving
third baseman. Manatee
brought in ace pitcher
Correlle Prime to pitch.
Nick Longhi's sacrifice
bunt moved courtesy
runner Ryan Miller to
third base and Banko to
second.
Miller scored the tying
run when Elmy reached
on an errant throw by the
catcher after a dropped
third strike. A sacrifice bunt
by Kevin Guthrie scored
Banko with the go-ahead
run. Knott ripped a single
into center field to score
pinch-runner Michael Iorio.
"I am proud of these
guys," said Faulkner. "They
battled back"

that they get to play
in this uniform," said
Longhi. "It's all about
them. It's their season."
Tied at 1-1 in the bot-
tom of the 11th inning,
Venice got a chance
to see another pitcher
as Sarasota brought
in right-hander Trevor
Wilson, who beatVenice
on Feb. 23.
After a fly-out started
the inning, senior Mi-
chael Knott, who had
gone hitless in his four
previous at-bats, laid a
bunt down the third-base
line and beat the throw
to first base for a single.
Brandon Elmy was hit
by a pitch, moving Knott
to second base. After a
strikeout, Longhi (with
two strikes) hit a short
fly over Sarasota second
baseman Brian Pietran-
ton, who went running
into short right field
trying to make the catch.
The ball glanced off the
end of his glove and
into right field as Knott
scored the winning run.
"He threw a good pitch
... I was lucky enough
to get the bat on it," said
Longhi. "It's another one
of those that makes up
for all the rockets you get
all year the one that
barely gets out there. I
thought he was going to
catch it and my heart just
sank. Lo and behold, it
found a way."
"Longhi got his third
hit, and a great bunt by
Michael Knott," said
Faulkner. "I gave him
(Knott) the opportunity
to bunt there. I told him,
if they are not playing
you in, bunt it."
Longhi likes the
pressure he delivered
the game-tying RBI
single in the bottom
of the ninth."


"Personally, it (pres-
sure) helps me focus
more at the plate and
gets me into a mental
phone booth where I just
focus on that at-bat,"
said Longhi. "It almost
heightens your senses a
little bit as a player."
"Once we got to extra
innings I knew we were
going to pull out the
win," saidVenice pitcher
Cooper Hammond, who
pitched the final 6 /3
innings for the victory.
"I just had a feeling. I
feel like we just get so
pumped up in extra
innings."
This is the fifth extra-
inning game for the Indi-
ans, including preseason;
they have prevailed in
four.
Hits were at a pre-
mium as each team only
had three through seven
innings.
Strikeouts were
abundant in this pitcher-
dominated game. Four
pitchers two for each
team -combined for 25
strikeouts and just one
walk.
The lone walk didn't
happen until one out in
the 11th inning a span
of 87 hitters combined.
Venice couldn't figure
out Josh Knies, who used
to play at Venice. Knies
pitched 10 innings with
12 strikeouts. The junior
right-hander, who threw
107 pitches, had all of his
strikeouts over the first
seven innings.
"Knies threw a good
game for them," said
Faulkner. "He just threw
a lot of breaking balls."
Sarasota couldn't get to
Venice's pitchers start-
er Tyson Albert or reliever
Cooper Hammond.
Albert tossed just 52
pitches over 4 /3 innings,
allowing three hits with
six strikeouts. Ham-
mond, a side-arm spe-
cialist, closed it out with
6 /3 innings of three-hit


relief, with six strikeouts
on 85 pitches.
"The real story of the
night is Tyson Albert and
Cooper Hammond," said
Faulkner. "Those guys
holding them to one run
in 11 innings. Tyson was
throwing great, but Coo-
per Hammond is the best
pitcher in the area, in
my opinion, and I wasn't
going to leave him on the
bench. They had a man
on second base and had
righties coming up and I
wasn't going to leave him
sitting in the bullpen and
not give him a chance of
what he did tonight. We
made the right decision."
"I was feeling really
good," said Hammond,
who increased his record
to 9-0 on the season. "All
the adrenaline going right
through me. Felt great.
I like the pressure more
and feel like I do better."
The game remained
scoreless through eight
innings.
In the top of the ninth
inning, Sarasota got onto
Venice's new scoreboard
with an unearned run off
Hammond.
With two outs, Sarasota's
Danny Mars singled up
the middle. The ball got
under the center fielder's
glove for an error, advanc-
ing Mars to second base. A
grounder to shortstop was
bobbled and Broderick
Rodocker was safe at first
and Mars moved to third
base. Another grounder to
shortstop bounced off the
infielder's glove, scoring
Mars and giving the Sailors
a 1-0 lead.
Brian Pietranton fol-
lowed with a single up
the middle into center
field. Rodocker attempt-
ed to score from second
base but was nailed
at the plate on a two-
bounce throw by Venice
center fielder Rex Inger-
ick to catcher Michael
Rivera to end the inning.
The play was crucial


SUN NEWSPAPERS 13A

for Venice.
In the bottom of the
ninth inning, Brandon
Elmy, who went 2-for-4,
singled up the middle.
Kevin Guthrie's sacrifice
bunt moved pinch-
runner Chris Rolfes to
second base. Longhi fol-
lowed by lining the first
pitch over the shortstop's
head to score Rolfes with
the tying run and force
additional innings.
"Sarasota has pitched
me tough all year and
hasn't given me anything
to hit," said Longhi. "I
was looking first-pitch
slider or first-pitch
curveball all night. It was
the case where I got it (a
fastball) and squared it
up.
"Big inning to
come back after they
scored their run," said
Faulkner. "They didn't
let down and it's a sign
of a good team. This is
the kind of game that
hopefully propels us a
long way."
The Indians had other
chances to score as they
stranded three runners
in scoring position at
third base in the first
inning with two outs, at
third base in the sixth
inning with one out and
at second base in the
seventh inning with one
out.
Sarasota had runners
stranded at second base
in the third and fifth
innings.

Students sit in on robotic surgery


By JOSH TAYLOR
ABC 7
Experts are predicting
a huge shortfall of nurs-
es and physicians by
the year 2020. So in an
effort to inspire the next
generation of healthcare
workers, Suncoast high
school students had a
firsthand look at the in-
dustry Wednesday right
in their classroom.
The pictures and
sounds came live
from Sarasota Memo-
rial Hospital operating
room into a Venice High
School classroom.
"If I was actually in
the room, I would prob-
ably gasp," said junior
Kaitlin Elsadek.
For the first time, 150
students in the VHS
medical academy got


to see what's actually
involved in a surgery.
"I have never seen
anything like this be-
fore," Elsadek said.
Teacher Carol Lash,
director of the academy,
said the students were
thrilled to have the op-
portunity.
"This is the first time
we have had an op-
portunity like this,"
she said. "We are very
excited about it."
The surgeon, Dr.
John Nora, even inter-
acted with the students,
talking through the
procedure to remove a
cancerous tumor and
posing and answering
questions all while op-
erating a robot that gave
him a steadier hand and
better vision.
"You only get so


much from reading a
book," said junior Adam
McLaughlin. "Until you
actually see it and say
'Wow, it takes this and
this' looking at a
diagram as opposed to
actually going into the


human body.
Sarasota Memorial
actually approached the
school, said OR nurse
Debra Love.
"We felt this was a
great way to do some
recruitment and get


students interested in
health care," she said.
"There are a lot of
people that are behind
the scenes. There are a
lot of careers that they
might not even know
about that they might

get exposed to today."
Elsadek said she did
learn something.
"Looking at the room
being put together,
there are so many boxes
and people all over rip-
ping things open," she
said. "Getting things in
order is kind of cool."
Love is hoping the
"virtual field trip" will
inspire the students,
even if it's something
they may need to get
used to.
"I will have a light
lunch today," said
McLaughlin.

SCF chem lab moving forward


By ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER
A renovation of the chem-
istry lab at State College of
Florida's Venice campus was
approved to move forward
Wednesday during an SCF
board of trustees meeting.
During the meeting held
on theVenice campus, the
board voted to go out to bid
for the renovation of the
1,500-square-foot chemistry
lab, which has been closed
since January. Students
in chemistry classes have
been using an anatomy and
physiology lab.
The board previously
had discussed the project
timeline during an April 17
workshop, but continued
the topic untilWednesday,
when it voted to approve
the "hard" bid process,
which per state require-
ments for educational fa-
cilities takes about three
months. The board must
advertise for 30 days that it
intends to go out for bids for
qualified contractors. Bid

answer to city council,
even though some were
appointed by council.
Council members
didn't attend pension
board meetings for at
least 20 years, until cur-
rent Mayor John Holic, a
retired financial adviser
who sat on one of the
boards previously, began
attending.
SIt wasn't until last
year that the city finance
director was ordered to
begin attending the pen-
sion board meetings.
What he found were
pension funds that were
losing ground as far back
as 2002.
Last year a state orga-
nization gave the city of
Venice failing grades for
its unfunded portion of
pension plans.
Options for a fix are
limited, experts say.

perspectives during
lengthy board discussions
over topics such as SCF
president Lars Hafner's
contract and the concept
of continuing contracts.
While other Scott ap-
pointees, including Craig
Triguiero, have continu-
ously pressed interests
expressed by Scott,
including cutting presi-
dents' salaries and pos-
sibly eliminating tenure
and continuing contracts
to focus solely on merit
pay, Fishman regularly
encouraged moderation
and a greater understand-
ing of the decisions made
by earlier boards.
"There were items that
came up where the board
had discussions and
disagreement," Fishman
said. "But that's a democ-
racy. That's the purpose of
a board of trustees to
discuss and sometimes
have differences and ar-
rive at a decision."
Fishman was among 10
appointees, most of them
at state colleges, that Scott
did not reappoint last
week. Lane Wright, spokes-
person for Scott, said the
governor did not have any
specific comments about
any of those who were not
reappointed.
"All we can say is that
Gov. Scott's goal is to look
for people that want the
job, that are well-qualified
and that share his vision


to improve education and
grow jobs in the state of
Florida," Wright said.
Another Scott spokesper-
son said the governor faces
no timeline to appoint
Fishman's replacement.


must be reviewed and ap-
proved before work begins.
During the April 17 meet-
ing, Traci Steen, associate
vice president of facilities
planning and maintenance,
said she will solicit hard bids
at the end of July.
The lab, original to the
building constructed in
1986, is notADA-compliant,
so renovations will include a
wheelchair-accessible sink.
One of the six lab tables
- each with a small sink,
chemical burner and access
to compressed air also
will allow wheelchair access.
SCF lab manager Diane
McGrath said classes that
will use the lab include
Chemistry 1 and 2. Any
number of SCF students
will use the lab once it
is complete, however.
McGrath and lab assistant
Victoria Ramirez said any

terminating the pension
fund poses one set of risks.
The city can freeze its
current pension fund
and require new employ-
ees to work under a new
plan with less-generous
benefits.
What that would looks
like will be fodder for
upcoming discussions
and workshops.
Holic long ago said
he'd prefer a defined
contribution plan,
which places the risk
on employees. Under a
"DC" plan, the city would
commit a certain level
of contributions. If costs
rise, they would be borne
by pensioners.
Unions will likely do
all they can to maintain
a defined benefit plan, in
which the city maintains
those benefits no matter
what they cost.

also often take lower-level
chemistry to qualify for their

"Even engineering and

of chemistry," said Alan Burr,
SCF manager of facilities
planning and budgeting,
adding that the estimated
total cost of the renovation is
around $300,000, not count-

furniture.
"It's kind of like remod-

"Chemistry labs are prob-

SCF president Lars
Hafner saidWednesday
that with board approval,
the lab could be complete
in time for the spring 2013

Snowbirds give way to sea turtles


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Sea turtles seem eager
to hit the beaches this
season.
Although nesting
season for sea turtles
begins May 1 (and ends
Oct. 31), the Ponte
Vedra News reported
a nest made in its area
in mid-March this
year. Two April nests
were reported at Bo-
nita Springs by ABC7/
WZVN, which serves
Fort Myers, Naples and
Port Charlotte.
"Warmer waters usu-
ally mean some early
nesting," Zoe Bass said,
"but not too many in
April."
Bass is the president
of Coastal Wildlife
Club, which monitors
sea turtle nesting and
hatching from the south
walk of Caspersen Beach
in Venice to Gasparilla
Island and part of Palm
Island. She and Wilma
Katz have their names
on the permits issued by
Florida Fish and Wildlife
to sea turtle program
monitors.
The remaining Saraso-
ta County beaches north
of Caspersen, including
all the Venice beaches,
fall under a permit is-
sued to Dr. Tony Tucker,
who is head of Mote
Marine Laboratory's
Sea Turtle Conservation
Program. Tucker is cur-
rently out of the country
at a conference about
sea turtle conservation
efforts throughout the
world.
Permit holders oversee
the training of volunteers
who patrol the beaches
during the nesting and
hatching season.
No early nests were
reported alongVenice
beaches, Mote spokes-
man Hayley Rutger said.
Patrols officially begin
next Tuesday morning.
In the case of Mote's par-
ticipation, this marks the
31st season volunteers
have been keeping tabs
on nests and hatchlings
along the 35 miles of
beach its volunteers
cover.
"In 2011, volunteers
marked 1,284 logger-
head nests," Rutger said.
"Over the history of
the program they have
marked 27,543 nests and
documented 1,499,946
hatchlings."
Many of the volunteers
have been patrolling the
beaches during turtle
season for many years.
Bass moved to the area
in 1970 and began her
turtle patrol work in 1988
or 1989, she said.
Volunteers sometimes
work in teams of two or
three. Most go out once a
week, but some volun-
teers walk the beaches
two or more times per
week for the entire
season. Volunteers must
commit to at least one
day a week.
Bass said she had
about 12 new people this

Caspersen Beach during the day. Turtles generally nest at
night. This photo was taken by a Venice tourist who happened


year. Training usually
occurs in late March for
both Mote and Coastal
Wildlife volunteers. They
may augment that with
occasional extra meet-
ings and email blasts.
Coastal Wildlife volun-
teers also monitor nest-
ing of such birds as the
Wilson's plover and the
snowy plover.
"They nest right on
the sand," Bass said.
"We've always been kind
of interested in the birds
because Coastal Wildlife
is interested in anything
that affects the beach."
They also watch for
signs of leaf terns and
black skimmers, which
are "colony nesters," she
said.
Because of the bird
counting, some Coastal
volunteers began walk-
ing the beaches earlier
than the Mote-trained
volunteers.
"I went out Saturday
to help put out mark-
ers," Coastal volunteer
DeuritaWieczorek said.
"I have a feeling we are
going to have a busy
season."
Volunteers are eas-
ily identified by their
T-shirts, which either
denote them as Coastal
or Mote volunteers.
In the early months
of the season volun-
teers are looking for the
telltale tracks leading
from the water's edge to
the nest site. If a female
turtle is especially large,
the tracks also are large,
with cup-shaped hollows
feathering out to the side
and a deep rut down the
middle, with a smaller
rut made by her tail.
When the nesting fe-
males reach the point at
which they want to make
their nest, they use their
back fins to dig a hole
about 18 inches into the
sand. They typically will
drop about 100 ping-
pong-ball-size eggs into


upon signs of a new
nest will dig into the
sand to determine if the
nesting was successful.
Only trained volunteers
are allowed to touch the
nests or eggs or, later in
the season, any hatch-
lings that might be dis-
covered. If there are no
eggs, the site is labeled
as a false crawl, with the
site being noted in the
log book.
When they find eggs
they do not touch them
but re-cover the nest
and mark it with a stake.
Stakes are inscribed
with the date of the
nesting and the loca-
tion. That information
also is added to a log
book that volunteers
maintain throughout
the season.
In areas where preda-
tion by local wildlife
such as coyotes or rac-
coons is prevalent, they
cover the nests with
sheets of hardware cloth
or cages made of hard-
ware cloth.
Occasionally, a female
turtle makes its nest
too close to the water,
increasing the likelihood
of its being washed away.
In that case, the volun-
teers will carefully dig up
the nest, mark the top of
the eggs and make a new
nest farther up on the
beach.
In recent years when
storms eroded the
beach, volunteers were

called upon to move
nests farther away from
the water to prevent
the eggs from being
drowned.
Nesting can con-
tinue into September,
although later in the
season hatching is more
prevalent and volunteers
will be on the lookout
for signs that the young
turtles have escaped
from their nests and into
the relative safety of the
Gulf of Mexico. At that
time, volunteers will
inventory the nests and,
if they find a stray hatch-
ling, assist it into the
water or take it home for
safekeeping until night-
time and then bring it
back for release.
Hatchlings usually
leave the nest 50 to 60
days after it was made.
In Venice, where the
darker sand is warmer
than at a white-sand
beach such as Siesta
Key, hatchlings emerge
as early as 47 days after
nesting.
Venice hatchlings
also are more likely to
be female than male,
according to Tucker. He
refers to the hatchlings


as "hot mamas and cool
daddies" as a way of
remembering this fact.
MostVenice nests are
made by loggerheads,
but occasionally there
are nests made by green,
Kemp's ridley or hawks-
bill turtles. On the east
coast of Florida the
much larger leatherback
turtle is more common.
Consider that turtles
usually return to the
beach from which they
were hatched to make
their nests and continue
the species. It is esti-
mated that fewer than
one in 1,000 females
ever manages to survive
long enough to become
a nesting turtle. That can
be as much as 30 years
later.
In the case of turtles
returning for the first
time this year, many are
coming to a beach that
now has condominiums
where once there was
nothing but sand and
seagrass. Most of the
condominiums along
the beach in Venice were
built from about 1974 to
1985.
Even something as in-
nocuous as a beach chair


left out overnight can
disturb a nesting turtle.
If a turtle is deterred
from nesting by lights
or other obstructions,
it might give up nesting
and simply drop its eggs
into the Gulf.
In Venice, there is a
lighting ordinance that
prohibits the use of
artificial lights, including
flashlights, vehicle lights
and lights shining on
the beach from windows
and walkways of nearby
structures and even
from streetlights. Florida
Power & Light shields
streetlights close to the
beach during the season
and homeowners and
condominium manag-
ers along the beach have
been proactive about
changing lights to the
right wavelength and
hue.
If you see lights shin-
ing on a Venice beach
during nesting season,
contact the city of Ven-
ice code enforcement
inspector, John Patek, at
941-486-2626, ext. 2326.
What everyone can do
is pick up trash at the
beach, obey the lighting
ordinances and keep the
beaches free of chairs
and other obstacles at
night during sea turtle
season.
Mote scientists such
as Tucker also care
for injured turtles and
return them to the sea
as soon as possible -
when it is possible. They
also tag such turtles
and sometimes attach a
satellite tracking device
to the back of some
turtles in order to gain
information about their
travels.
Fishermen need to
contain their fishing line,
which poses additional
hazards for turtles who
eat it thinking it is a
jellyfish or become
entangled to the point of
losing a flipper. A perma-
nent resident at Mote is a
sea turtle known as Hang
Tough that was blinded
by a fish hook in one eye
and a head wound that
caused blindness in the
other eye.
Hang Tough has a
permanent home at
Mote, where it serves to
educate the public about
issues turtles and other
creatures face in the
wild. Should you want to
adopt a turtle at Mote,
call 941-388-4441 or visit
www.mote.org.
If you see what ap-
pears to be a sick or even
dead turtle, do not touch
it but call Mote's sea tur-
tle line immediately at
941-388-4331. Even what
appears to be a dead
turtle, might actually be
alive, but very lethargic,
a Mote spokesman said.
If you see a sea turtle
or hatchling in danger,
call Mote Marine Sea
Turtle Program at 941-
388-4331 or the Venice
Police Department at
941-486-2444.

'Full Monty' offers plenty of belly laughs


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
The Players' produc-
tion of "The Full Monty"
is the ultimate girls' night
out.
The story takes place
in Buffalo, where the
steel mill has just closed.
Each week the men pick
up their unemployment
checks and grow more
dejected. Seeing how
enthusiastic his wife
Pam (Alana Opie) and
her friends are about the
male strippers at a local
club offering a girls' night
out, Jerry Lukowski (Jef-
fery Kin) hatches a plan
for some quick money.
On the verge of losing
visitation rights to see
his son, Nathan (Jakob
Lutz), because he is so far
behind in child support
payments, Jerry figures
that he and his friends
can put on a show as
good as or better than
the Chippendales and
make some big money in
the process.
How he finds five
other guys and carries
out his plan provides
nearly nonstop laugh-


ter while also covering
some serious topics, only
some of which result
from their long-term
unemployment.
Playing to a nearly full
house of mostly older
women on one of the
Players' preview nights,
there were cheers and
catcalls and wild ap-
plause from an appre-
ciative audience. Not
one person left after
intermission.
Directed by Jared
Walker, with music and
lyrics by David Yazbek
and book by Terrence
McNally, cast members
were at their zaniest
throughout the show,
whether singing, danc-
ing or just admiring their
own bellies. Seeing is
believing.
Stripping begins with
Buddy (Keno) Walsh
(TomWestlake) and
continues with Gladia-
tor/Repo Man (Nathan
Deets) and Motor cop/
Repo Man (Brandon
Deets) while the girls go
wild and even invade

Vicki Nichols (Sue Cole),
Molly MacGregor (Gayle
Foster), Estelle Genovese
(Kelleen Purdin), Joanie
Lish (Bonnie Schiavone),
Susan Hershey (Jennifer
Baker), Betty (Victo-
ria Gross) and Delores
(Tammy Halsted). They

strippers include Jerry,
Dave, Harold Nichols
(Mike Phelan), Noah
(Horse), T. Simmons
(Gordon Gregory), Mal-
com MacGregor (Tony
Boothby) and Ethan
Girad (Steve Bikfalvy).
Simmons earns huge
applause for his featured
performance in "Big
Black Man." Musical


numbers that sparkle
include "You Rule My
World," featuring Fitzger-
ald, Dougherty, Phelan
and Cole, and "Breeze Off
the Water," as well as the
finale, "Let It Go." Bobby
Burrell knocks down the
house with her "Jeanette
Showbiz Number."
Lutz, 11, turns in a
remarkable performance
as Nathan in this very
adult show.
Michael Newton-
Brown's set was right
on the money, as were
the costumes by Dee
Richards-White. Parry
Snyder-Atkins kept it all
rolling as stage manager.
Rick Bogner directed
the orchestra, which
might have overwhelmed
a less-talented cast on a
few occasions. But then,
this is the kind of show
that everyone gets into.
Kudos to cast and crew.

PHOTO COURTESY OF INGRID SIMKE
Dixie is a 3-year-old female shorthair pointer, 44 pounds.
She is very sweet, well-trained and housebroken. Her first
home was on a farm and she doesn't like being kept inside
all the time. She would be happy in a home with a huge
yard or a farm where she can run around during the day and
sleep inside where it is safe and warm at night. Shy at first,
she warms up quickly and is a great friend.

WEEKEND EDITION APRIL 28, 2012


Save on your next trip to Hawaii


By CAROL PUCCI
THE SEATTLE TIMES

"Who would go to
Hawaii in June?" a friend
asked when I talked
about a trip I took to
Maui last year.
A travel writer on a
budget, for one.
I, too, was skeptical
about the timing, but the
weather was a perfect
70-80 degrees, with low
humidity and evenings
cool enough to sleep
without AC.
By planning my trip
in the first week in June
- after spring break and
before school let out for
the summer I found
deals on airfare and ho-
tels that weren't there for
travel earlier or later.
Visiting Hawaii dur-
ing the slower seasons
- early February and
early March, late May,
early June or fall is one
strategy for making travel
more affordable. But if
that's not possible, don't
give up. There are other
ways to save.

Getting there
Airfares are higher this


year, so flexibility will be
key.
Travel midweek, if pos-
sible, and if you're still
not having any luck, try
moving your dates by a
day or a week or two.
To find the least-
expensive travel dates,
consult low-fare calen-
dars on websites such as
Kayak.com and Alaskair.
com.
Use Bing.com's Price
Predictor to gauge
whether fares are likely
to rise or fall in the com-
ing weeks.

Getting around
Renting a car off-
airport can save $100 or
more on a week's rental.
Example: Enterprise
recently quoted $399,
including taxes, as the
weekly rate for a Chevy
Aero picked up at the
airport in Honolulu.
The price fell to $240 for
pickup at several other
locations just a few miles
away.
Agencies with off-air-
port locations can't pick
you up at the airport.
You'll need a cab for
that. But most will take


you back.
Oahu, Maui, Kauai
and the Big Island have
inexpensive public bus
service. I rented a car
in Maui but used Maui
Bus several times (www.
co.maui.hi.us) At $1 per
ride, I loved being able
to jump off when I saw
something interesting
without hassling with
parking.
Fares are also $1 on the
Big Island's Hele-On Bus
system (www.heleonbus.
org). Oahu's transit
system (www.thebus.org)
sells a four-day pass for
$25 and single rides for
$2.50. Kauai Bus (www.
kauai.gov) provides
service around the island
for $2 per ride.

Where to stay
"Buyer beware" are
the watchwords when it
comes to sifting though
advertised "deals" for ho-
tels, rentals and vacation
packages. Hidden clean-
ing and resort fees, park-
ing and taxes can lift the
bottom-line price higher
than it first appears.
Online-booking sites
can turn up deals, but


check first directly with
hotels. They might offer
the same or a lower rate
as a web special, and
AAA or AARP rates might
be less.
Expedia, for instance,
recently advertised a
three-night "early book-
ing bonus" rate at the As-
ton Waikiki Beach Hotel
for $576, including taxes
and fees. That was $5 less
than the rate available on
the hotel's website, but a
search there also turned
up an AAA/AARP rate of
$523.
Package-tour op-
erators negotiate volume
discounts, but the deals
may include extras that
you don't need. Before
paying for a vacation
package upfront, figure
out the cost of each
component if booked
separately. You'll gain
flexibility and avoid extra
change or cancellations
fees beyond what the ho-
tels and airlines charge.
Example: A seven-
night Pleasant Holi-
days package for two
to Maui in February
came to $3,696, includ-
ing taxes and a $19 per
night resort fee payable


Customs tips for when you enter the US


directly to the hotel. The
price included nonstop
flights on Hawaiian
Airlines from Seattle, a
garden-view suite at the
Kaanapali Shores Hotel,
a two-for-one luau offer
and a $100 food and
drink credit.
Booking the same
flights and hotel sepa-
rately came to $3,393,
with taxes and a $10 per
night resort fee, a savings
of $303, minus the pack-
age extras.

half-price by bidding on

ByANDREASACHS
THE WASHINGTON POST

Re-entering the United
States after a trip overseas
can be quick, painless
and drama-free if you
know the rules before
you go.
Here are some tips
gleaned from the experts
at U.S. Customs and
Border Protection, the
Department of Agricul-
ture, and the Fish and
Wildlife Service.
Don't take leftovers
from the airplane's in-
flight food service. The
food could have been
sourced from a foreign
destination and might not
meet U.S. standards. In
addition, any foods you
packed from your pantry
could have been contami-
nated during your travels.
Leave them on the plane
or hand them over to a
Customs officer.


Duty-free items sold
in the airport are not
guaranteed to be safe; the
stores might not abide by
U.S. laws regarding sani-
tation, protected species
and the like. Authorities
recommend that travel-
ers refrain from bring-
ing back beef products
regardless of country and
cooking process (cured,
dried, canned, etc.). The
main concern: the threat
of disease (mad cow, foot-
and-mouth, etc.). Even
candies from China are
deemed unsafe, as many
contain cow byproducts.
The only admissible beef
snacks come from coun-
tries free of disease, such
as New Zealand. Consult
with the USDA for a list of
safe destinations. (Caveat:
This status could change
overnight.) Call the hot-
line at 888-674-6854.
Canned pork is per-
mitted as long as it is


commercially packed
and hermetically sealed.
Homemade or opened
samples are not allowed.
Cheeses fall into a mushy
area. Hard cheeses are
typically okay, but soft or
liquid varieties are no-go.
Check with the USDA for
specifics.
Raw eggs are never wel-
come, but cooked eggs
are allowed from coun-
tries without reported
cases of avian flu or other
bird-related diseases.
If you visit a farm or a
ranch, clean the dirt and
muck off your shoes be-
fore you transport them
home. Inspectors will
disinfect your footwear if
they have time (be sure
to tell them of your rural
outing). However, they
also have the right to
confiscate your mud-
encrusted shoes.
You can transport 125
grams of black caviar


(unless it's beluga), but
surpass that amount and
Customs can snag your
entire stash.
Beverages are permit-
ted, with the exception of
milk-based drinks.
Because of an agree-
ment with the Nether-
lands, Americans may
purchase certified tulip
bulbs; look for the official
seal of approval.
Be wise (and even
skeptical) when buying
animal-skin accessories
and attire, such as belts,
wallets and jewelry. That
bracelet could very well
be made of elephant
ivory. Best to walk away
or purchase at a respect-
ed shop. Keep all receipts
and grab a card with the
vendor's information.
Buyers, be alert in China,
Vietnam and Nigeria.

Five thoughts for 2012 travel


By LYNN O'ROURKE HAYES
DALLAS MORNING NEWS
What are your travel
plans for 2012? Here are
five ideas for your family
to consider:
1. Travel to learn. More
families are using their
time away together to
learn about themselves,
other cultures and the
changing nature of our
global society. Consider
a language immersion
program, a cultural
exchange or volunteer
vacation. Learn about
climate change in the
far corners of the earth
or ancient rituals in the
deep reaches of the South
American jungles.
Contact: crosscultural
solutions.org; spanish
contact.com; earthwatch.
org
2. Book a packaged
trip. The cost of flights
and hotel stays could
rise as much as 5 percent
in 2012. Families can


compensate by choos-
ing a travel package that
combines rooms, flights
and even car rentals. Tak-
ing advantage of negoti-
ated and bundled rates
can make a trip to your
chosen destination more
affordable and simpler to
book.
Contact: expedia.com;
travelocity.com; travelzoo.
com
3. Take a cruise. Cruise
lines lure families aboard
by offering sporting
activities, food choices,
original entertainment
and shore excursions
designed for everyone.
From rock walls and wave
pools to teen night clubs
and giant movie screens,
kids and their parents will
find plenty to smile about
on a cruise. Newer ships
provide cabin configura-
tions that include room
for families of six or more
via family suites, sleeping
alcoves, fold-outs and


adjoining rooms.
Contact: cruisecompete.
com
4. Consider train
travel. Ride the rails with
the kids and enjoy the
scenery and a mode of
transportation that recalls
days gone by. From Harry
Potter's Hogwarts Express
to Amtrak's landscape-
rich California Zephyr,
travel by train allows
the family to sit back,
relax, unwind and enjoy
compelling vistas without
the worries of traffic jams,
driver fatigue, fast-food
breaks or concern about
road conditions.
Contact: amtrak.
com;westcoastrailways.
co.uk/
5. Embrace winter
sports. Perhaps this is
the year to expand your
winter sports experiences.
Lace up the skates, strap
on the snowshoes, learn
how mushers round up
their sled dogs or con-


sider an ice climb. Go
downhill, cross-country,
into the back-country and
then warm up in a steam-
ing hot spring. Skate-ski
to dinner served in a yurt
or ride a horse-drawn
sleigh that's headed to
a cozy cabin where you
and your family can savor
supper served fireside.

sunvalley.com.

Etna lights sky for Venice couple


By MARCELLA WOODWORTH
GUEST WRITER

About 12 years ago my
husband, Archie, and I
did a three-week driving
tour that spanned the
length of Italy. We began
in Milan and ended our
trip with a week-long
stay at the Hotel Villa Du-
cale in Taormina, Sicily.
This winter my sister,
Celeste Gallagher, joined
us as we made a return
trip to that boutique ho-
tel, which was converted
from a family home on
a rocky precipice of Mt.
Tauro, from which the
town gets its name.
There is a rhythm to
a place and a trip. We
wanted a slow and easy
pace, so we chose the
off-season, March, to
avoid the thousands who
visit this living museum
of ancient civilizations
during the summer
tourist season. While
this means weather can
be iffy, we remembered
that our previous trip in
January rewarded us with
70-degree temperatures
and snow atop Mt. Etna,
the tallest active volcano
in Europe.
Little did we know that
this year there would be
an added bonus.
Arriving at the Vin-
cenzo Bellini airport
in Catania afforded us
an aerial view of Etna.
Rising nearly 11,000 feet
above sea level, Etna can
be seen for many kilome-
ters. Snow covered the
famous mountain. When
winter came to Europe
this year, it came with
a vengeance, dropping
several feet of snow at a
time.
Catania is Sicily's
second-largest city and
the airport is named for a
composer who was born
there.
After picking up our
rental car, a comfortable
Renault, and taking a few
wrong turns searching
for the A8 out of Catania,
we were on our way to
the Villa Ducale for the
next seven days. Celeste
had never been to this
island and was surprised
to see how high up on
the hillside our hotel was
situated. As we drove
around one hairpin
turn after another, over
causeways, through tun-
nels and arched old walls
to the city, climbing ever
higher to our destina-
tion, the ever-receding
shoreline gave way to
the ever-expanding view
of the Ionian Sea, as this
portion of the Mediter-
ranean is called. Below
us were the crescent-
shaped twin resort towns
of Giardini-Naxos.
Naxos is the site of the
Archeological Park that
documents the location
of the earliest Greek and
Ionian settlers to this


area, known as the Siculi.
Their arrival in "Naxus"
in 734 B.C. predates that
of the Syracusae.
We finally arrived at
Villa Ducale, which is
built into the cliffside
just below a 10th century
Saracen fortress atop Mt.
Tauro and an even more
precariously perched
hamlet called Castel-
mola. La Madonna della
Rocca keeps a protective
eye on all below.
We were warmly
greeted by hotel staff
members Paolo, Antonio
and Alessia, and while
our luggage was being
taken up to our rooms by
Delan, we enjoyed a re-
freshing drink of "arance
sanguinella" (blood-or-
ange juice) a welcome
refreshment after a long
flight from Miami.
Jet lag seemed to fade
as we sat on the broad
main terrace of the hotel
with a view of Mt. Etna
and the Ionian Sea, as
Alessia provided us with
maps and explained
the services available
through the hotel. It
was sunny and about 75
degrees that day.
Each of our rooms
faced the sea, with small
individual terraces fac-
ing the Bay of Naxos,
as well as a view of the
mountain. Our suite had
a larger side terrace for
sunning or just a quiet
spot to read outdoors,
protected from winds
by two sentry-like cedar
trees.
Because of the long
flight from Miami to
Rome, then a transfer to
Catania, it was late after-
noon when we arrived in
Taormina. We decided to
take a rest and unpack
rather than venturing
into town. Our rooms
had queen- and king-size
beds and the traditional
painted chests for cloth-
ing storage. Bathrooms
were ample in size and
had all the expected
modern amenities.
Because we had de-
cided to have our first
dinner on the terrace
of the hotel, we went
down to the main ter-
race at 7 p.m. to enjoy
the complimentary hours
d'oeuvres of delicately
flavored fava beans, fried
zucchini, bruschetta,
and assorted cheeses,
along with a local drink
of Prosecco and more
"arance saguinella."
The long flight had
considerably diminished
our appetites, so we ate
a light meal of mush-
room risotto that was
so deliciously seasoned
and creamy that its
memory is with us still.
We watched the lights
along the shoreline from
Giardini-Naxos to the tip
of the long pier at Naxos
come up, then retired for
a welcomed night's sleep,

luxuriating in the crisp,
white sheets.
Breakfast on the main
terrace each morning
was a delight. Because
the hotel was full, even
at this time of year,
mostly with Europeans
and Brits, there was an
international cold table
of meats, cheeses, boiled
eggs, fritattas, cereals,
stuffed mushrooms,
breads and jams and
juices, as well as a hot
table with hot spinach
fritatta, vegetables and
sausages. In addition, the
main table in the lobby
held fresh fruit mel-
ons, citrus, figs, dates,
etc. fresh yogurt and a
variety of tarts, cannollis,
tortes and sweets. Local
cuisine and traditional
Italian fare were well
represented. Coffee with
hot milk was served indi-
vidually.
After requesting dinner
reservations for the three
of us at one of the local
restaurants recommend-
ed by the staff, we made
arrangements to take
the Villa Ducale shuttle
down to the main street
of Taormina, the Corso
Umberto, and the Teatro
Greco. The van could seat
eight and ran at regular
intervals during the day,
arriving and returning to
a drop-off point just out-
side the old walls of the
main town of Taormina.
There are hundreds
of spiraling stone steps
from the Chapel at Ma-
donna della Rocca to the
center of town, winding
through the small spaces
between houses, villas
and shops. In about 20 to
30 minutes, depending
on the speed and agility
of the walker, you can
be in the center of town.
That particular day we
opted for the shuttle.
We rode down the hill-
side with a British couple
and their daughter. We
would have the pleasure
of their company on
several more occasions
during our stay. It was
just a short walk through
the main gate of the
town, past cafes, to the
Teatro, which dates to

the third century B.C.
and is the second largest
in Sicily, after the theater
in Syracuse.
An earthquake de-
stroyed most of the
upper structure of the
Teatro, which was later
rebuilt during the Roman
occupation. Its arc-
shaped "cavea," carved
from the stone of the
island, provided seating
for at least 5,400 people.
The Greeks used it for
the comedies and trag-
edies they were famous
for, while the Romans
rebuilt the main stage to
better suit the gladiator
and animal spectacles
they favored.
The acoustics remain
remarkable to this day.
The astounding and
inspirational view of Mt.
Etna through the pillars
behind the main stage
certainly must have been
worth the price of admis-
sion. Time and weather
took its toll on the Ro-
man theater, and in the
1950s, the theater went
through a process of
shoring up the remain-
ing pillars and walls with
local antique brick.
On our walk back
from the Teatro my sister
bought a small puppet
dressed in the medieval
garb of a heroic knight.
Whether Norman, Span-
ish, Saracen (Moor) or
Italian, these characters
populate the Opera dei
Pupi, or the Sicilian
Marionette and Puppet
Theater, that developed
in the early 1800s. This
folk art form was en-
joyed by children and
adults alike. Rather than
historical representations
however, the puppet
plays idealized the nobil-
ity and the strictures of a
then-still-feudal society.
It was an entertaining
alternative to the passion

plays of the Church.
After fortifying our-
selves with a strong Ital-
ian espresso at one of the
local cafes, we continued
our afternoon stroll
through the pedestrian-
only Corso Umberto.
Tourist T-shirt and trin-
ket shops eventually gave
way to stores filled with
designer clothing, shoes
and leather goods. One
shop had the most beau-
tiful Italian leather gloves
in a variety of colors and
ornamentation, from
embroidery to nailheads;
my sister and I lingered
long there. Another shop
held antique silver trays,
expensive but worthy of
note.
At one of the most
delightful narrow "alleys"
that intersected this
main street there was a
terraced shop where we
admired feather-light
wooden trays beauti-
fully painted with hues
reminiscent of Renais-
sance paintings. I had
purchased one of these
on a previous trip and
restrained myself from
buying another with
some regret now.
In a perfume shop we
did purchase scents that
were solely representa-
tive of Taormina and Sic-
ily. They incorporated the
scent of the cypress trees,
almond blossoms and
lemon and orange groves
that dot the island.
The main piazza,
Piazza IX Aprile is mid-
way between La Porta
Messina at the east end
of the Corso Umberto
and La Porta Catania
on the west end. The
Baroque, Renaissance
and Gothic churches and
palazzos along the way
were sometimes built
over Greek and Roman
foundations.
The Piazza IX Aprile
itself is a wide terrace
overlooking the sea offer-
ing an excellent view of
Etna. In the evening and
on weekends, the cafes
and benches are gather-
ing places for young and
old alike. On a particular-
ly chilly, rainy day during
our stay we took refuge
in one of these cafes and
drank Italian hot choco-
late chocolate so thick
you could stand a spoon
in it. The rain and chill
was soon forgotten.
That evening we
returned to town for
dinner at the family-run
Ristorante La Piassetta
for pasta with eggplant,
eggplant parmigiano and
scampi in a savory sauce.
The restaurant itself,
down one of the little
side stairs that connect
to the Corso, was quiet,
friendly and warm.
A slow stroll through
the piazza at night
turned to a brisk walk
when the wind picked

dropped below what
our Florida bodies were
used to. We retired to the
Villa Ducale to spend our
second night comfort-
ably ensconced under
the duvet.
The next morning was
Sunday, and Alessia had
advised us the day before
to avoid driving up to
Etna on Sunday because
it would be crowded with
skiers. It was not.
While the day was
sunny with temperatures
in the high 70s, Etna was
warmer still, spewing a
mile-high plume of gas,
steam and pumice from
its core.
Sipping cappucino
over breakfast and
watching this force of
nature from the safety of
the villa was a treat. We
had witnessed Etna erupt
on our previous visit, but
I was pleased that my
sister also had this op-
portunity. While not an
uncommon occurrence
for the residents, it was
a memorable event for
us. There would be no
skiing.
We decided to attend
Mass at the 17th-century
Chiesa di San Giuseppe
on the piazza. After Mass
we strolled through
the 100-acre Municipal
Gardens, which include
terraced paths with views
of the sea and Etna, as
well as tree-covered
walkways, fountains,
pergolas, Victorian follies
and topiaries a perfect
place to spend a Sunday
afternoon.
From there, one de-
scends past the Byzan-
tine necropoli (cem-
etery) to the terraced
park with a view of Isola
Bella and the Bay of the
Sirens. Seeing the rocky
outcroppings from this
perspective, one could
easily believe it was here
that the sirens tempted
Odysseus.
By the time we re-
turned to the center of
Taormina, the plume of
smoke and pumice from
Etna had drifted south
over the city, causing a
light layer of ground-pep-
per-size pumice to fall on
all surfaces and people.
We returned to Villa
Ducale, where we had
ordered a special meal for
that evening and retired
early so that we might
start out the next morn-
ing for the drive to the ski
resort atop Mt. Etna.

In Part 2, the Wood-
worths will visit the ski
resort near the top of Mt.
Etna following the erup-
tion and visit a World
Heritage site along the
southern coast of Sicily.

WEEKEND EDITION APRIL 28, 2012


FINE WHINES


Deadline on arrival


By BOB MUDGE
EDITOR

As a former practicing
attorney and a current
newspaper editor, I'm
quite familiar with dead-
lines. They are, as the ex-
pression goes, the major
reason things get done.
And one of the major
benefits to being retired,
as many local residents
are, is not having to deal
with nearly so many
deadlines no worries
about getting the kids to
school on time, when you
punch the clock at work
or getting out in time to
beat the traffic. Plus, the
ones you have are mostly
flexible. Bridge game?
They won't start without
you. Doctor appoint-
ment? He's usually run-
ning late. Happy hour?
Hey, it's an hour.
But the presence of so
many people with "no-
where to go and all day to
get there," as they say, can
be inconvenient to those
of us who do have some-
where to go and need to
be there five minutes ago.
Take, for example, the
lady who entered the
grocery store in front of
me the other day after
work (mine, not hers). I
needed to pick up several
items and go home to
make dinner, get the kids
started on homework,
do some homework of
my own, etc. She, obvi-
ously, also needed to do
some shopping but may
not have had as full an
agenda for the evening,
judging from the way she
stopped in the doorway
to get a cart and pains-
takingly wipe its handle
- blocking both the
entrance and, when she
moved just far enough
into the store for me to


enter, the shopping carts.
It took her by surprise
when I said "Excuse me"
and wriggled my way to
the carts.
A phrase I picked up
somewhere years ago
flashed into my brain yet
again: We're just extras in
the movies of their lives.
It occurred to me after
this escapade that some
judiciously imposed
deadlines might be in
order. Given incentives to
shop faster, drive closer
to the speed limit and
eat more quickly, people
who tend to dawdle when
performing these tasks
might do them more
expeditiously, leaving us
all with more leisure time
and reducing the amount
of store/road/restaurant
rage that tends to mark
the season. (OK, maybe
it's just me. But that's
reason enough.)
Other than threats of
physical harm (tempting,
but troublesome), the
greatest incentive is mon-
ey either getting some
or losing some. Because
we want this program to
pay for itself, and we'll
need the cooperation
of businesses and the
government, which are
always looking for more
revenue, we'll go with a
schedule of fines.
Let's say, for instance,
that when you go to the
grocery store you have to
give a greeter a list of the
items you need. Based on
the list, you are given a
window of time in which
to get them and check
out. You can buy more
things but you don't get
more time. If you meet
the deadline, you take
your groceries and go on
your merry way. If you
don't, the price starts go-
ing up, maybe 10 percent


every five minutes or
fraction thereof. So you
can still take as long as
you want to shop but it
will cost you.
Traffic fines would be
assessed based on the
excess time it takes you to
get from Point A to Point B,
allowing for traffic delays
(which, of course, are what
we're trying to reduce).
There would be up-front
costs to put monitoring de-
vices on all our cars and to
get the equipment needed
to track us, but I think we'd
recoup that quickly from
people who drive as though
speed limit signs have a
decimal point in them.
Restaurants would
be handled like stores.
The clock starts running
when you're seated and
continues to run as long
as action is required of
you ordering, eating,
paying; it's stopped dur-
ing cooking, for example,
unless you had a special
order. Your bill goes up
incrementally for every
minute you take to finish
it beyond the allotted
time, unless the restau-
rant doesn't need the
table. Even then, though,
you have to pay your way
by ordering regularly; no
nursing a cup of coffee
for 45 minutes even if all
the other tables are open.
I know that my plan
will be attacked as an
infringement on our civil
liberties, a promotion of
big government and the
like. I don't care.
The first Fine Whines
I wrote offered a new
Golden Rule: Get out of
the way. It didn't work, so
now I'm getting right to the
point: Get out of my way.
Of course, this rule will
continue to apply after I
retire.

JUNE CASAGRANDE

I'm always careful with
the word "none." When-
ever it's the subject of a
clause, I take special care
with the verb.
The choice between
"none is" and "none are,"
for example, can raise a lot
of eyebrows. Compare "Of
all my friends, none are as
kind as you" with "Of all
my friends, none is as kind
as you." Many people will
tell you that "none are" is
wrong, for reasons we'll get
to in a moment, and that,
therefore, "none is" is the
only correct choice.
That's actually not the
case, but the idea still
influences my decision.
A grammar error need
not be real to distract
from what you're trying
to say. A perceived error
can muddle your mes-
sage just as effectively. So
I usually opt for "none is"
over "none are" because
it's the safer choice.
Or so I thought. It turns
out there's another view
I'd never heard until I got
this email from David in
Orange County, Calif.,
about a recent column.
"You may have a gram-
matical error in today's
column," he wrote. "In
your second to the last
paragraph you write
'none of your words
IS carefully chosen.' I
believe that none is an
indefinite pronoun which
can be singular or plural
and should agree with
the noun or pronoun to
which it refers. In this


sentence 'none' refers to
'words,' which is plural.
The sentence should read
"none of your words ARE
carefully chosen.' Am I
missing something here?"
That was a new one
on me, and startling in
its logic. Yes, pronouns
should agree in number
with their antecedents -
the words to which they
refer. But it doesn't quite
apply in this situation.
First, some back-
ground. The people who
say "none" can never go
with a plural verb like
"are" argue that this is
because the word "none"
is necessarily singular. It
means "not one," after all,
they insist. Thus any verb
that goes with it should
be singular: none is
instead of none are, none
goes instead of none go,
none reads instead of
none read, and so on.
There's just one prob-
lem with this view. "None"
doesn't just mean "not
one." According to dic-
tionaries, it also means
"not any," so it can be
plural. "Is," "are," "goes,"
"go," "reads," "read" any
of these verb conjugations
can be correct, depending
on what you mean.
So, contrary to popular
belief, "none" can be plural:
"The notion that it is singu-
lar only is a myth," writes
Merriam-Webster's Diction-
ary of English Usage."


CROSS
FROM PAGE 4


But what of this idea
that it must be plural, at
least in cases like "none of
your words are carefully
chosen"?
Yes, pronouns take
their singular or plural
status from the nouns
they represent. That's why
you'd say "Employees
should keep their work-
place clean" instead of
"Employees should keep
his workplace clean."
But is that really what's
going on in a sentence
like "none of your words
is carefully chosen"? Not
quite. Here, "none" isn't
a pronouncing meaning
"words." The "of" before
it indicates that "none"
is instead referring to a
subset of "words." And a
subset could mean one
word or numerous words.
So "none" can be sin-
gular or plural, depend-
ing only on the speaker's
intent or emphasis.
"'None' has been both
singular and plural since
Old English and still is,"
Merriam-Webster's notes.
"If in context it seems like
a singular to you, use a
singular verb; if it seems
like a plural, use a plural
verb. Both are acceptable
beyond serious criticism."

RABBI SHOLOM
SCHMERLING


Aren't we all

in the secret

service?
A ew shuffles into
shul on Yom Kip-
pur, and the rabbi
greets him, "Moshe! I
haven't seen you the
entire year. Where have
you been? Are you not in
the army of G-d?" Moshe
answers, "Of course I am!
I'm in the secret service."
This week the U.S.
Secret Service faced an
embarrassing moment.
It was called the biggest
scandal in the history of
the Secret Service. Eleven
agents were busted
soliciting prostitutes in
Cartagena, Colombia.
Apparently, what those
agents did is technically
not illegal in Colombia,
but President Obama
stated most strongly
that he would be "very
angry" if the reports
were true. According
to Obama, those Secret
Service agents were not in
Colombia for themselves
but rather they were
representing the entire
United States and should
have held themselves to a
higher moral standard.
I read Obama's words
with fascination, for as
Jews, we too are held to a
higher standard.
Secret Service agents
are hand selected and
rigorously trained. Huge
amounts of money are
invested in producing
top-notch agents who are
then sent on important
missions.
Each and every one of
us is a member of a differ-
ent kind of secret service.
Our souls, before de-
scending into this world,
were trained, briefed
and hand selected. Then
those souls were given
their missions: Uplift the
world, elevate its inhabit-
ants, spread g-dliness and
spirituality. With their
training behind them, our
souls were ready to tackle
the task. They came right
down, entered our bodies,
and together we do the
work.
But as we go through
life, challenges try to
prevent us from fulfilling

our missions. The evil in-
clination gets in the way
and tries to derail us.
Interestingly, the Zohar
likens the evil inclination
to a prostitute. A par-
able is told of a king who
wishes to test his only son
to determine his loyalty.
He hires a prostitute to
seduce his son again and
again to see if he passes.
Similarly, the evil inclina-
tion is there to test us,
again and again, as we try
to live a life of holiness
and spread that holiness
to others.
Here in this world, we
are not just "us." We are
G-d's representatives and
we are held to a higher
standard. As Rashi writes
in this week's Torah por-
tion, "Just as I am holy,
so too you should make
yourselves holy." Not just
for 10 days at a time. This
is a long-term mission,
and we need to uphold
the standards.
Eat kosher food? Sure!
Put on tefillin? Absolutely,
it's part of my mission.
Nail a mezzuzah to my
door? Go right ahead! Ob-
serve Shabbat? Of course,
it's a weekly reminder
that G-d created us and
sent us on this mission.
When the Colombia
scandal came to light,
Gen. Martin Dempsey
said, "We let the boss
down."
As long-term secret ser-
vice agents, we know our
Boss is relying on us. Let's
not let Him down.
Shabbat Shalom!

Several times a year St. Mark's
Episcopal Church hosts an interna-
tional dinner and project designed
to have children and adults working
together. In late April, attendees
celebrated the fact that Easter is
a season and not just a one-day
celebration. Youth and adults
commemorated the resurrection by
decorating flower pots and planting
flowers. Pictured, Ella Brookes-

it's done while Brady Hamm looks on

Fresh decorating ideas for your home


FROM FAMILY FEATURES

A recent survey by the
retailer HomeGoods found
that while almost half of
Americans haven't updated
their home d6cor in the last
five years, only 20 percent
are happy with it. If that
sounds like you, then it's
time for some fresh ideas.
"You don't have to redo a
whole room," says Giuliana
Rancic, entertainment jour-
nalist and style guru. "Small
changes like adding a new
color or introducing a scent
to a room really make a big
difference."
The entryway of a home
is the first thing guests see,
so make sure it's impactful.
Tidy up the outside area
around the front door, and
add some inexpensive pops
of color with a planter full

makeover.


of seasonal flowers. On the
inside, think about updat-
ing the walls with floral or
damask wallpaper, or even


a painted chevron pattern
to add visual interest.
Sights, sounds, textures
and scent all work together


to complete the ambiance
of a space. Try using soft
lighting with lamps and
dimmers for a warm and
inviting atmosphere. Mix
textures in the room by
adding a soft throw to a
modern, sleek sofa.
Live plants and flowers do
wonders for a room. Lemon
or orange tree topiaries are
a popular way to add a nat-
ural pop of color. If you're
not sure about taking care
of live plants, you can easily
find artificial ones that look
natural. Silk bamboo plants
come in all sizes and fit on a
table top or fill up an empty
corner in a room.
Rancic recommends
taking cues from the things
you love to add elements
that express your personal-
ity without having to do a
floor-to-ceiling makeover.

Simple steps to home safety


FROM FAMILY FEATURES

Here are some simple
steps you can take to make
your home a safer place.
Every home should have
smoke detectors and carbon
monoxide monitors, but they
require some minor mainte-
nance and don't last forever.
According to the U.S. Fire
Administration, a working
smoke alarm significantly
increases your chances of
surviving a home fire.
Make sure you have
smoke alarms installed on
every level of your home,
including the basement. The
USFA recommends install-
ing them inside and outside
of sleeping areas. Replace
your batteries regularly.
Many people use the time
change each spring and fall
as a reminder.


It's recommended that
homes have both ionization
and photoelectric smoke
alarms, or dual sensor smoke


PHOTO COURTESY
OF GETTY IMAGES
Smoke detectors are a
big part of any home-
safety plan.
alarms that have both types
of sensors. (Ionization alarms
sound more quickly in a
flaming, fast-moving fire.


Photoelectric alarms are
faster at sensing smoldering,
smoky fires.)
Protect yourself and your
family through the use of
deadbolts on doors and
locks on windows.
Installing motion-sensor
lights on walkways or drive-
ways can potentially deter
a thief.
Many home security
kits are available in a "do it
yourself" complete package,
allowing you to custom-
ize sirens, entry points and
more. If installing an entire
security system seems too
much, something simple
like a keyless entry system
provides peace of mind and
easy installation. A garage
door keyless entry using
fingerprint identity ensures
that only the right people
gain access to your home.

Spring lawn and


landscape tips


FROM FAMILY FEATURES
Your lawn, trees and
shrubs need your help to
get off to a healthy growing
season.
Here are some lawn and
landscape tips to help you
take care of your yard this
spring.
Clean up: New spring
growth can be hampered
if it's covered with debris.
Clean out dead leaves,
branches, trash or anything
else that could impair your
lawn's growth.
Prune properly: Correc-
tive pruning of your trees
and shrubs can make
them not only look bet-
ter, but help them grow


better, too. Don't top-
shear overgrown shrubs
or trees; thin them out
to preserve their shape.
Spring-blooming plants
should only be pruned
after they flower.
Put the right plants
in the right place: When
you're ready to plant new
plants, make sure you put
them where they'll thrive.
Be sure you know the light
requirements for a new
plant. Fences or other
structures can restrict air
flow, which can interfere
with growth.
Make sure you have
the right type of grass for

your lawn. Wherever grass
has a hard time grow-
ing, plant shady ground
covers instead. If you're
considering sod, make sure
the temperature is warm
enough for grass growth.
Firmly pack sod into the
soil and water as needed
to encourage deep root
growth.
Nourish the roots:

after the dormancy of
winter. Make sure your
early spring fertilizer has
less nitrogen and more
phosphorus to promote
strong roots. Be sure to
keep fertilizer on target to
prevent run-off, and sweep
fertilizer granules that may
reach pavement back onto
your lawn.
Get ready to water: Give
your lawn a slow, steady
watering about once a
week, but adjust depend-
ing upon rainfall, grass
and soil type in your area.
Follow the owner's oper-
ating manual to take an


automated sprinkler system
out of hibernation. Ensure
sprinkler heads and related
waterlines are working
properly.
Make sure the irriga-
tion system covers your
landscape efficiently. For
example, you can place a
1-inch-deep empty food
can in the middle of the
lawn area to measure the
depth of water collected
after each watering cycle to
ensure uniformity.
Mulch the right way:
Mulch can keep soil in
place, reduce weeds and
retain moisture. But you


Page 11
need to make sure you're
doing it right. When the
soil has warmed up, apply
3 inches of organic mulch
to the base of shrubs and
trees to help conserve soil
moisture and to reduce
weed pressure. But be
mindful not to cover the
flare of the tree base in
mulch "volcanoes," which
can lead to rot.
When your lawn is
actively growing, return
grass clippings back to the
soil for added lawn nutri-
ents, and consider using
composted materials to
nourish plants.

Save by doing it yourself


FROM FAMILY FEATURES

Use these DIY home
improvement and cleanup
tips to help revamp your
home, without spending a
fortune:
Repaint the walls -
one great way to update
your home without hav-
ing to replace carpeting or
furniture is to refresh walls
with a fresh coat of paint.
Determine the amount of
paint needed by using an
online calculator, such as
the one provided at www.
homedepot.com.
To save even more, simply
update the paint on doors,
cabinets and crown mold-
ing, rather than the walls.
Likewise, you can paint an
accent wall along a hallway,
or within your kitchen or
living room, rather than the


entire space.
Replace hardware -
make small updates now
that you can incorporate

into later construction
projects. One small trick
is to replace the hardware
in highly trafficked areas,


such as the kitchen or the
bathroom. Replace cabi-
net handles or knobs and
drawer pulls.
Install shelving in the
garage who couldn't use
extra storage space? For
many, additional storage
may mean looking beyond
the house to the garage.
Find a variety of storage
solutions that fit within your
budget from finishing rod
racks to cabinets and over-
head ceiling-mounted shelv-
ing at retail stores such as
www.walmart.com.
Update flooring to cover
existing flooring, use floating
laminate pieces. Installing
wood laminate in your bath-
room, bedroom, kitchen
or living room is easy with
snap-together pieces. Check

A green lawn the'green' way


FROM FAMILY FEATURES

According to the 2011
Environmental Lawn and
Garden Survey from the
National Gardening Asso-
ciation, 79 percent of U.S.
households report that it's
important to use environ-
mentally friendly practices
on lawns and landscapes.
But that same survey found
that only 17 percent of
respondents gave their own
lawn-care maintenance
methods a "green" grade.
Use these tips to help care
for your lawn and garden
this year:
Mow tall make sure
your mower's blades are
sharp and take no more
than 1/3 the length of the
grass off each time.
Go electric without
the need for gas or oil

equipment, you can tend
to your lawn, garden and
landscaping using electric
products. Electric tools also
save you money compared


to using gas-powered out-
door equipment.
Water slowly, deeply and
less frequently proper
watering will allow your


grass to grow deeper roots,
making it less vulnerable
to drought. Also, water
early in the morning, so
less moisture evaporates
throughout the course of a
hot day.
Be cautious when using
pesticides remember,
all pesticides are toxic to
some degree and may harm
people, wildlife and pets.
Pesticides can also kill
beneficial organisms, such
as worms, disrupting the
ecological balance in your
yard.
Recycle your grass clip-
pings according to the
Environmental Protection
Agency, 27 percent of land-
fills were filled with grass
clippings and yard waste in
2011. Help to eliminate this
waste by composting. Learn

More curb appeal, cheap


FROM FAMILY FEATURES

Want to add curb appeal,
but don't have much money
to spend? Here are some
simple things you can do
for under $100.
Clean up the yard.
Put away unused items,
like lawn furniture. Clear
leaves and branches out
from under shrubs, other
plants and the house foun-
dation. Make sure the lawn
is free from debris and
that grass clippings are
not left on the driveway or
sidewalk. Borrow or rent a
power washer to clean off
the driveway, steps, side-
walk and porch.
Trim, prune and divide.
Overgrown plants can block
light from getting inside
the house and they make
the house and yard look
unkempt. Trim shrubs,

I)agIZC- p


making sure to remove
dead branches. Get rid of
dead or diseased plants
in the landscape. If you
have perennial plants that
have gotten too big, divide
them and plant them in


other places around the
landscape.
Add new mulch. Mulch
not only helps your plants,
but it gives garden beds a
neat and tidy finish. Wood
mulch comes in different

colors, but to showcase
your plants the most,
consider a dark brown
mulch it resembles fresh,
healthy soil, so your eyes
are drawn toward the plant
and not the mulch itself.

A 1929 Buick Model 27 four-door sedan.


Pre-WWII Buicks


SUN PHOTOS BY LEE ROYSTON V
A 1939 Buick Special Model 41 Series.


- what a difference 10 years makes


Wat a response
from last week's
street-legal
drag-type cars. Seems
years ago "up North,"
it was commonplace
for young men to use
semi-race autos for daily
transportation week-
days, then in compe-
tition Saturday and
Sunday. Calls and emails
came to us from some
of those who did just
that, similar to the two I
wrote about. We wel-
come hearing from read-
ers and almost always
learn something con-
cerning the motor sports
hobby of the "good ole
days." Like vaudeville
performers used to say,
Keep those cards and
letters coming!"
Both of the pretty
Buicks chosen for
today's column have
owners with interesting
backgrounds and good
reasons for buying theirs.
The 1929 blue-and-black
four-door sedan was the
smallest of the brand,
yet looks big because of
its height and square de-
sign, with large 30-inch
artillery-type wheels of
wood. Buick Motor Com-
pany first began May 19,
1903, when it was in-
corporated, and later in
September 1908 became
part of General Motors,
and is to this day.
The present owners
since 2011, Gene and
Valerie DeLuigi of Port
Charlotte, previously
lived in Venice, until
2008. Prior to then, they
resided in St. Petersburg,
and were employed by
GTE, he for 27 years, she
for 18. Not one to be idle,
Valerie is currently with
Comcast in its Murdock
office. The DeLuigis had
never owned any collec-
tor-type vehicle, however
both grew up watch-
ing the TV show "The
Untouchables," and liked
seeing the old-style gang-
ster and law enforce-
ment cars. Retired, and
at age 61, Gene decided
it was time for them to
get one of their own, and
began seriously looking
in various publications,
plus visiting places that
specialized in selling
oon


Ull Sn an Lee
. 'WRoyston

older automobiles.
The Buick was at a
museum, and as soon
as they saw it with those
fancy wide whitewall
tires, Valerie told me
"both of us fell in love
with the stunning good
looks." Needless to say,
a quick deal was made
and, at last, this couple
had almost exactly what
Robert Stack used chas-
ing the bad guys. After
getting the dream car
home and in actual use,
an almost full mechani-
cal rebuild was required,
including the gas tank,
the fuel lines, the carbu-
retor and the fuel pump,
plus overhauling the
transmission and the
rear end. The main rea-
son for these problems
was from sitting too long.
Now that those repairs
have been made, she
runs like a clock, smooth
and quiet, taking them in
the luxury of yesteryear,
motoring with smiles
on their faces. Trophies
don't interest this two-
some; all they want is
to share the Buick with
children and seniors who
really appreciate it when
offered a ride going back
in time 83 years.
Look for them at the
Punta Gorda Home
Depot Cruise-In between
9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
today. Remember to
bring a camera!

1929 Buick Model 27
four-passenger sedan

mission, three-speed
manual; rear, standard
Buick design; brakes,
four-wheel mechanical-
external grasping shoes.


Moving on to the
10-year-newer maroon
1939 Buick Special four-
door sedan, it's easy to
see the changes from the
1929. The grille and whole
front end is streamlined,
also the wheels and tires
are smaller, resulting in an
overall lower stance. The
inside is more plush, with
easy-to-read gauges built
in the dash, plus, on the
trunk lid, there are electric
turn-signal indicators, as
part of the Buick emblem.
Underneath, the suspen-
sion features coil springs
attached to a heavy-duty
frame, and large hydraulic
four-wheel modern shoes
in a drum brake system.
The shock absorbers are
more than three times
larger than on most cars,
providing a softer ride than
the older Buicks.
This attractive all-
original, 84,000-mile car
is the property of Eugene
"Pete" Peterson, 83, and
his wife of 35 years, Carole,
who live in Englewood.
He retired after being
employed for 15 years
by Sarasota Memorial
Hospital as supervisor of
maintenance. Prior to that,
Pete was with Buckeye
Pipeline Co. in Auburn,
N.Y., for more than 17
years, after becoming
the parts manager of the
Cadillac/Olds dealer, also
in that town. From 1946 to
1949, he spent three years
in the Marines, working
on Corsair (folding-wing)
fighter planes.
His dad and relatives
always drove Buicks, thus,
when he was discharged
from the service, natu-
rally young Peterson did
also until 1962, when a
Volvo P1800 sport coupe
was purchased new. That
vehicle stayed with them
until January 2011, at
which time a fellow made
an offer they couldn't turn
down. Now it was a Buick
that came to mind, so us-
ing a computer to search
for one, this 1939 turned
up in Atlanta, owned for
five years by an "older
gentleman." A trip up
there to check it out was
worthwhile, as the car was
represented honestly to
be almost as we see this


machine in the photos
Lee took last July, just after
it arrived here in Charlotte
County.
For 10 months, I tried to
find a 1929 Buick to use as
a comparison automobile
to make an interesting
article, then suddenly the
DeLuigis came into my life
with theirs. Paul Harvey
used to say, "Now you
know the rest of the story."
Well, almost the rest,
you see Pete really wanted
a 1938 Buick Century
Coupe, and if a good one Gene and Vale
turns up, the 1939 will be
sold. Meanwhile he'll be
out and about, hopefully
with what he presently
owns on display in Punta
Gorda today, parked side
by side with its "older
brother."

Tip of the Week: Use beeswax on convertible tops
and tonneau cover zippers to make for smoother closures. It
also works on boat covers and cushions. Ask for it by name at
hardware or boat-supply stores. I've found if rubbed carefully
on the "teeth,"the results are great with no staining.

Have all the car nuts left town?


By DANNY GAWENDA
SPECIAL TO THE SUN
Seems like all the local car
nuts left town. Lots happening
around the state, but not that
much locally. With the rainy
season, the car shows will be
an iffy thing. A lot of the car
clubs "shut down" for the sum-
mer months. Check out www.
flacarshows.com for car shows
in our area.

'Summerize' it
If you store you car for the
summer, make sure to protect it
from the sun and summerizee"
the engine. Hmmm, up North
we "winterize."
Lots of people talk about
the high price of keeping
their cars in shape. Who
would have thought the price


of the parts needed to repair
your car would be more than
the labor to install them? And
the parts are all coming from
Asia, where everything is sup-
posed to be cheap. A dealer
wanted $275 for a starter on
my Corvette and two hours
labor to install it. The starter
was made in China. When I
questioned him about it, he
said it is made to GM specs.
A rebuilt starter was $45 at
a local parts shop, rebuilt in
the USA. The dealer would
not install the rebuilt starter.
Something about liability
and safety. Local shop said
one hour labor. To be fair,
the dealer will give you one-
year warranty on the starter,
including labor. The rebuilt
starter has a one-year war-
ranty, but I would have to


pay the labor to remove and
install the rebuilt starter.
For looks, I'm going to get
one of those new mini high-
torque gear starters. I ordered
one of those new fancy start-
ers online for $80, including
shipping. I did get a lifetime
warranty, but I have to send it
back, at my cost, for repairs if
needed.

Oil change
At a local dealership, a nor-
mal oil change is $24.99 for five
quarts blended (some regular
oil, some synthetic) oil and a
filter with a coupon. If you get
the full synthetic, it is $80 with
a coupon, yet the price differ-
ence between the regular oil
and synthetic is only $3 a quart.
Guess it takes more time to


install the synthetic oil.
Then the sky opened up
and the argument started. Is
the synthetic oil really better?
From what I read, the syn-
thetic oil is better, but it still
holds all the contaminants. If
you do a better job of filtra-
tion, you lose some of the
necessary additives. Synthetic
oil will not "break down" as
much in extremely changing
temperatures.
Mechanics say the synthetic
oil will prevent excessive wear.
Most mechanics recommend
changing your oil at no more
than 5,000 miles, synthetic
or not. If your car is meant
to run on regular oil, why
change to synthetic? If you
have a 20-year or older car, it
is recommended to stay with
the regular oil.


Successful cruise-in
The cruise-in and flea
market last week was such a
success that Jim is going to
have another at 10 a.m. today
(Saturday) at RV Services
Unlimited, 11069 Tamiami
Trail, Punta Gorda. Call 941-
639-0010 for information.
Remember, everything is free.
Jim said he will fire up his
high-performance grill and
burn some hot dogs. "Lil"
Audry will do the entertaining
for his event, which will go on
rain or shine.

club no dues, fundraisers or
any cost to participate. Ifyou are

Prius C review: unexciting ride, thrilling


DELRAY BEACH, Fla.
- (MCT) If you had to
describe the Toyota Prius
gas-electric hybrid in one
sentence or phrase, what
would you say?
Well, Toyota describes
the Prius as "an enthusi-
ast's car for a new kind of
enthusiast."
Certainly it's an easy
way to justify the Prius'
personality, which is one
of benign efficiency. It can
travel farther on a gallon of
gasoline than its competi-
tors, but it does so with all
of the tangible excitement
of a senior citizens' bingo
tournament.
This gas-sipper's thrills
come not from the speed-
ometer, but from the fuel
gauge, which barely budges
as the miles pass.
If this excites you, the
Prius is your car.
It certainly has excited


a lot of buyers. Toyota has
sold more than 2.5 million
Prius hybrids worldwide,
1.1 million in the United
States since 2000, and
96 percent are still on the
road, according to Toyota.
The car accounts for
half of all hybrids sold in
the U.S., outselling Honda
hybrids by a margin of four
to one, Ford and Hyundai
hybrids by five to one and
GM hybrids by 10 to one.
So is it any wonder that
Toyota is expanding the
Prius line?
A cargo-friendly Prius V
which plops a wagon body
atop the Prius platform,
went on sale in November.
A plug-in version of the
Prius liftback is scheduled
to go on sale shortly. But
the most important model
may be the one just arriv-
ing in Toyota showrooms:
the Prius C.


The "C" in the 2012 Toyota Prius C stands for "city,";
would expect of a Prius designed for city use, it's si
and price than the original Prius liftback.


The C is 19.1 inches
shorter than the liftback,
but 3.8 inches longer than
the subcompactYaris, with
which the C shares its plat-
form. This newest Prius is
smaller in other ways as
well. By using 120 cells in
the car's battery pack,


48 fewer than it
cousin, the C is
lighter. Better ye

seat, instead of

ment, Toyota us

olur-cylinueie engine tiat
produces 73 horsepower.
When combined with the
electric motors, the Prius
C's driveline produces
99 horsepower, 35 fewer
ponies than the liftback.
A continuously variable
automatic transmission is
standard.
The car starts in normal
mode, although drivers
can choose an EV mode,
for pure electric driving,
MCT PHOTO and an Eco mode, which

tings for optimal fuel

larger Given that, it's no sur-
14 percent prise that the Prius C is no

compart-
ies a 1.5-liter

That's the price one pays
for good mileage, which
clocks in at 53 mpg city,


mileage

46 highway. (By compari-
son, the larger Prius is rated
at 51 city, 48 highway.)
A mixed driving loop in
southern Florida returned
50 mpg.
Toyota also offers a new
feature called Eco Score,
which tells you how ef-
ficiently you're driving and
the fuel cost of your trip.
Speaking of cost, you
might be surprised to find
that the Prius C starts at less
than $19,000, with a fully
loaded version topping out
at $24,000.
The 2012 Prius C's
personality is very much a
city car. You could drive it
across country, but better
to drive it across town.
It's no better or worse to
drive than other Priuses.
But you'll find the 2012
Prius C is much better than
the Yaris, not to mention
the original Prius.


Easy fix for a time-traveling Volvo station wagon


Dear Tom and Ray:
My car time-travels into
the future. I have a 2004
Volvo XC70 station wag-
on (I know it's dowdy, but
it's better than a minivan,
right?) that for some
reason does not keep
proper time. I can set the
clock to the correct time,
and within days it will
be running fast. Within
two months, the clock
is fast by 20 minutes. I
can understand losing
time because of a weak
battery or something,
but advancing in time?
Any thoughts? OK, let me
clarify that: Any thoughts
pertaining to my ques-
tion? Lisa
TOM: We actually do
have a few of those, Lisa.
RAY: If you're the kind
of person who is chroni-
cally late, you may have
a spouse who is sur-
reptitiously nudging
your clock ahead in an
attempt to get you to be
on time.
TOM: Several of my
ex-wives used to try that
on me.
RAY: Oh, I don't think


CLICK and CLACK

TALK CARS
by Tom & Ray Magliozzi





SK'



Because anyone who owns a car
needs a laugh twice a week.
they wanted you to be
on time. They were just
trying to make the day
of the divorce settlement
come sooner!
TOM: Most likely, Lisa,
the clock itself is faulty.
And, unfortunately, the
clock in this car is part of
the instrument cluster.
RAY: And when you
find out that in order to
replace this clock, you
have to replace the whole
instrument cluster for
$1,000, you'll embrace
the time-honored solu-
tion for malfunctioning
automotive clocks.
TOM: You'll go to the


hardware store, and for
four bucks, you'll buy
yourself one of those
stick-on digital clocks.
You'll peel off the back-
ing and slap it right onto
the instrument panel,
over where your current
clock sits.
RAY: Now, it's possible
that your entire instru-
ment cluster is beginning
to fail. If something cru-
cial in the cluster stops
functioning like the
speedometer you may
be forced to replace the
whole thing at that point.
TOM: Or, if you're
lucky, your regular me-
chanic will know one of
the places that fixes these
panels for a few hundred
bucks, and he'll be able
to send it out for you.
RAY: But I wouldn't
bother just for the clock.
Even if you're a Volvo
owner and you're used
to leaving the dealership
with angina after seeing
the estimate, that's a lot
for a clock. Especially
given the age of the car
and the price of the alter-
native. Good luck, Lisa.


Converter
replacement is
worth it in this case
Dear Tom and Ray: I
love your show. I recently
got a 2001 Audi A8L that
now has 130,000 miles on
it. The only other owner
was my dad, and he took
extremely great care of the
car. Recently, the check-
engine light has been
coming on, saying that
my catalytic converter's
efficiency is too low. My
mechanic tested it and
said the level is just barely
above what I need for the
car to pass its emissions
inspection. He said to wait
as long as I can to replace
it, but that some people
choose to get rid of their
cars at this point because
the repair is $5,200, and
the blue-book value of the
car is only $6,000. So, what
should I do? Keep the car
and pay $5,200 to replace
the converters when the
time comes, or sell it now,
while it is still passing its
emissions tests? Patrick
TOM: You have to relo-
cate to somewhere with no


emissions testing, Patrick.
Have you considered the
Democratic Republic of
Congo?
RAY: A lot of people
don't realize that when you
buy a high-end car, it's not
only the purchase price
that's high the parts
and service are "premium
priced," too.
TOM: But the price you
got sounds a little high
even for Audi. This car uses
two catalytic converters.
According to our sources,
the converters themselves
cost about $1,900 if you
buy them from Audi.
Then you probably should
replace all four oxygen
sensors, at about $200 a
pop. And then add labor.
Still, I don't see how they
can charge you more than
about $3,500 for this job.
So I think the estimate you
got is high.
RAY: Not that $3,500
is cheap! But if someone
offered you this car, right
now, with new catalytic
converters, for $3,500,
you'd probably buy it,
right? After all, what's your
alternative? You could sell


it for $6,000 and get what?
A 2004 Dodge Caravan?
TOM: Or, if the buyer
finds out why your check-
engine light is on, you'll
sell it for $2,500 and get a
'94 Caravan!
RAY: You also can
research aftermarket con-
verters, Patrick. There are
people who actually rebuild
converters and ship them
to you. You can find these
guys online. Of course, you
don't know what kind of
quality you're getting when
you go that route.
TOM: We've had some
rebuilt converters that
worked well, and oth-
ers that didn't do enough
"conversion" to keep the
check-engine light off
(which means you can't get
an inspection sticker). So
you can save some money
that way, but you're taking
your chances.
RAY: Since this is still a
nice car, and it's been well
cared for, and you seem
to enjoy driving it, I'd say
bite the bullet and replace
the converters. But shop
around first and see if you
can get a better price.

Dear Heloise: I have a
helpful hint that everyone
will appreciate: wash all
socks inside out. Hazel
in Richmond, Va.
Hazel, you've made a
good point. After your
foot spends all day in
a sock, the sock can be
sweaty and collect dead
skin cells and odors. Yuck!
A major manufacturer
of footwear and a major
detergent company said
that it's a matter of per-
sonal preference.
The detergent company
says you'll get adequate
cleaning regardless of
how the sock goes in the
washer. The sock com-
pany concurs with the de-
tergent maker. Whichever
one you choose is fine.
One time-tested Heloise
Hint is to use a safety pin
to hold your socks together
so they don't get separated
in the wash! Heloise

Safe travels
for dogs
Dear Heloise: We re-
cently had a dog trainer
scold us because our
poodles were not secured
in our car. We have found
a pop-up dog crate, which
comes in several sizes.
It has a wire frame, and
it just pops up into a rect-
angular shape, with mesh
sides and a zippered door.
It has straps on it that you
run your seat belt through
to secure it.
Every dog owner needs
to realize that if your dog
is loose in the car and you
have an accident, your
dog becomes a projectile


BABY BLUES By Rick Kirkman and Jerry Scott


Hints from Heloise

and can be easily killed or
thrown from the car into
traffic. Also, if a dog is in
your lap or lying on the
seat next to you, it can be
killed by the air bag. We
really like these crates, and
so do our dogs. James E.
Reveley, DDS, via email

Coffee mixer
Dear Heloise: Here is a
hint for those who enjoy
powdered coffee drinks.
The directions always say
to stir with a spoon, which
doesn't always mix all the
powder into the hot water.
Next time, try a mini whisk.
I find it works perfectly and
quickly. L.G., Sturgis, S.D.
Love it, and try a fork,
also! It is pretty easy to
make different powdered
coffee mixes, and they all
are so delicious. I have
compiled a pamphlet
that has several different
mixes of coffee that you
can try, such as mocha,
cinnamon and a delicious
spiced coffee. To receive
the pamphlet, just send $3
and a long, self-addressed,
stamped (65 cents) enve-
lope to: Heloise/Coffee and

Animosity drives wedge

between family members


DEAR ABBY: My
mother has never liked
her sister-in- law. Mom
thinks "Auntie Beth" is
"completely out to get
her," even though no one
has seen any evidence
to support my mother's
claims.
For the past several
months, Mom has been
complaining nonstop
about how "awful" Beth
is. She says things at the
most random times to
people she barely knows.
If we don't show sympa-
thy toward Mom, she then
becomes enraged. It has
caused many problems
between our family and
Auntie Beth's. We can't
have holidays together
because my aunt is not
allowed in our house. No
one wants to be involved
in the drama or to partici-
pate in the terrible gossip.
How can I help my
mother understand the
harm she is causing
and get our family back
together? SICK OF THE
DRAMA
DEAR SICK OF THE
DRAMA: Your mother's
behavior appears to
have escalated from
disliking Aunt Beth to
obsessive and paranoid.
If it is time for her an-
nual physical, her doctor
should be told about it
because her behavior
is not normal and she
may need a neurological
exam or counseling.
Unfortunately, there
isn't much you can do
about this, because if
you try, she may think
that you are "against"
her, too. But the rest of
the family can refuse
to allow her to exclude
Aunt Beth by not accept-
ing invitations in which
she is not included.
DEAR ABBY: I have
started a relationship and
am falling in love. I have
known "Willa" for a few
years, but we never really
hung out before this. We
see eye-to-eye on lots of
things. However, the other
night she told me she'd
had a past relationship
with her best guy friend,
"Mike," whom she refers
to as a "big brother." I
have known him for a
year.
Mike is someone I hang


Dear Abby

out with. Their fling was
eight years ago. Willa
also hinted there may be
other mutual friends she
has had relations with
before me. I don't care
who she's been with, but I
feel I should know which
ones we socialize with.
And I'd rather hear it from
her than find out from a
friend. Willa says it isn't
her place to spread other
people's business. What
do you think? -WANTS
ANSWERS
DEAR WANTS AN-
SWERS: Unless Willa
intended to make a full
disclosure, she shouldn't
have teased you by mak-
ing you curious. Obvi-
ously, you do care about
whom she has been with,
so now you need to be
honest with yourself
about why. Would you
prefer not to socialize
with the men with whom
she has had past relation-
ships? Because she has
clammed up, perhaps you
should assume that she
has been with all of the
men she has introduced
you to. The question you
need to ask yourself is
whether you can put her
past aside and focus in-
stead on building a future
with her.
DEAR ABBY: I am
curious to learn what
your readers do when
they receive a gift card
for a place where they
don't shop or eat. Some
restaurants are located
far from where I live, and
some stores don't carry
anything I need or want.
- GRATEFUL, BUT ... IN
COLUMBUS, OHIO
DEAR GRATEFUL, BUT:
I'm printing your letter,
but I am sure most of my
readers would do what
I would do and that is
re-gift it to someone who
would appreciate it and
use it.


"And they prayed, and said, Thou, Lord which
knowest the hearts of all men, show whether of these
two thou hast chosen."--Acts 1:24.
God wants to help you with that decision. Ask Him
for the wisdom you need.


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


HOROSCOPE
ARIES (March 21-April 19).You're a sponge for
knowledge now, and you'll learn from those who
have what you want. The best teacher is experience.
Go for the hands-on experience whenever possible.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).When you have a plan
and follow it, you'll feel productive. You might
get even more accomplished by just winging it;
however, you won't get the same winning feeling as
you do when you follow a plan.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You won't do things
in the expected order, but you'll get them done
ooo


nonetheless. A loved one might find this puzzling.
But why should you do things like everyone else?
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Most people think it's
important to be right, but they're wrong about that.
You'll be amazed at what happens when you give
up the need to be right.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).Your standards of style come
into play. You may like someone very much, but you
won't take the relationship to the next level until
you're satisfied that your styles will mesh well.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).Your skills get rusty ifyou


up your bag of tricks. Practice that thing you used to
be able to do to prevent losing the skill altogether.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-0ct. 23). Writing to-do items down
on paper seems so"old school"in today's high-tech
world. However, it's the method that's going to
make this day a great success.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).You'll spend a fair
amount of time looking at the big picture.To an out-
sider, you appear to be a person staring into space.
They can't see the wheels turning in your mind.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).You are still being


tivity without allowing time to laugh, kick back and
recuperate. Don't skip these crucial steps.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.19). You have that
special charisma that makes people give you their
full attention.You will have a receptive audience,
so take your sweet time telling a story, giving a
performance or explaining what you know.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).Onceyou fully bond
with someone, it's next to impossible to separate
you permanently from that person.Temporary
separations end in you being magnetically drawn


don't use them. You're in just the mood to freshen too hard on yourself, expecting maximum produc- back together.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).You feel a strong
empathy with someone who is going through an
intense experience. Your empathy is an expression
of love that widens your perception.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY(April 28).Operating in group!
will be a specialty, and you'll be an integral part of
a winning team this year. You'll visualizeyourself
succeeding and then create the same dynamic in
your reality. A shift in perspective helps you find a
way to make more money in June. November bring
exciting visits. Pisces and Sagittarius people adore
you.Your lucky numbers are: 3, 25, 49, 27 and 16.


JANRIC CLASSIC SUDOKU
Fill in the blank cells using numbers 1 to 9. Each number can appear only once in each row,
column and 3x3 block. Use logic and process of elimination to solve the puzzle. The difficulty
level ranges from Bronze (easiest) to Silver to Gold (hardest).
