'Fallout' boosts bird si


PHOTOS COURTESY

This rose-breasted grosbeak in a fig
tree is one of the species blown off
course by the recent winds. A rare
"fallout" of birds blown east as they
migrated to Mexico has excited local
birders.


Fire kills



man, dog

STAFF REPORT

Firefighters say it appears
that an accident started a
house fire that killed a South
Venice man and his dog.
According to Capt. Susan
Pearson, Sarasota County Fire
Department, the origin of the
fire was a cigarette. Authori-
ties are working under the
assumption the victim fell
asleep while smoking. An
autopsy by the county medical
examiner is pending.
Around 1 p.m. Sunday, fire
crews were called to 3570
Sterling Road to check out
what they thought was a car
fire. When they got there, they
found a home burning and,
later, 45-year-old Alan Shrode
inside.
Authorities believe Shrode,
of Shrode Jewelry of Venice
Inc., lived alone with his dog.
He was taken to Venice
Regional Medical Center, where
he later died. The Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office and
the State Fire Marshall's Office
responded and are investigat-
ing. The Venice Police Depart-
ment was called in to assist.

report.

Rose-breasted grosbeaks
and Baltimore orioles regularly
migrate through Florida on their
way to Mexico, but many more
than usual appear to be hanging
out in this area, the result, biolo-
gists say, of a rare "fallout."
The last week has been excep-
tional in the number of local
sightings.
"It's a first for me," said Zoe
Bass, a 40-year Manasota
Key resident who spotted a


rose-breasted grosbeak in her
backyard. Other longtime
Floridians in Englewood, Venice
and other nearby communities
are also reporting seeing gros-
beaks and orioles also known
as Northern orioles.
Brenda Bossman, education
director for the Venice Area
Audubon chapter, said the
Venice area is seeing far more
grosbeaks and orioles than in
past years. Other migrating
species recently reported are
scarlet and summer tanagers
and bay-breasted and Cape May


warblers.
Abbie Banks, a member of the
Venice Birding Association, said
she's hearing an unusually high
number of reports of sightings
not only locally but throughout
Florida.
"It's a unique fallout," Banks
said.
Jim Rogers, an avian biologist
with the Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission,
explained that "fallout" is when
birds drop out of their normal
migrations.

Who has right of way where
the Legacy Trail crosses a road?
The issue is heating up now
that Palmer Ranch Communi-
ties Coalition has persuaded
Sarasota County to change the


configuration at Sarasota Cen-
tral Parkway, giving motorists
preference.
"Overall, we looked at all four
crossings but concentrated on
two Colonia and Sarasota
Central Parkway, not Laurel
Road or Palmer Parkway," said
Christopher Hauber, Sarasota


County engineer.
He works with the Friends
of the Legacy Trail and listens

TRAIL 113


Carvey heading VFD during search for new chief


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Shawn Carvey has been
selected to serve as Venice's
interim fire chief. He replaces
Fire Chief John Reed, who
retired April 24 after more than
two decades of service to the
department.
Carvey is a 16-year Venice
Fire Department veteran,
having served as battalion
chief for the past six years.
He served on the hazardous
materials team for more than
14 years and has been its coor-
dinator since 2001.
Reed, who began his career
with the city in 1991 as a
firefighter and worked his way
up the ranks, quietly sup-
ported Carvey for the fire chief
position when he announced
his retirement six months ago.
But the city administration,


under the guidance of then-
acting city manager Nancy
Woodley and Administrative
Services Director Alan Bullock,
opted to conduct a nationwide
search to attract candidates,
albeit while requiring Florida
experience.
The search was interrupted
while the city conducted a
search for a new city manager;
it hired Ed Lavallee.
A formal job vacancy
announcement for the fire
chief position went out in
February. The application win-
dow closed March 26, having
attracted 84 applicants.
By the time the city evalu-
ated applicants for the
required Florida firefighter cer-
tification, and four other "must
have" certifications, only 11
qualified.
Carvey was the only internal
candidate, but is missing one


of the certifications and didn't
meet the minimum education
attainment level.
The local fire fighters union
expressed concern over the
hiring process.
"I feel this process is being
rushed and is not following
basic processes for vetting
candidates," wrote Jerry Col-
lins, district vice president
of the Suncoast Professional
Firefighters & Paramedics IAFF
Local 2546, in a letter to the
mayor and city council.
He questioned why Carvey
wasn't allowed in the finalist
pool.
Council Member Jeanette
Gates asked for the same con-
sideration at a council meet-
ing, but didn't pursue the line
of questioning after Lavallee
said it wouldn't be fair to the
other candidates.
Bullock defended the hiring


process, saying it's exactly
the same procedure followed
when hiring the police chief
and city manager.
"We would have loved to
consider Shawn," Bullock said
Tuesday. "He's a great guy
and easy to work with. But
our (written) procedures and
rules specifically prohibited
including him" once it was
determined he didn't pos-
sess "the five must-haves"
(certifications).
The next step in the fire
chief search is to establish a
panel to whittle the list down
to a handful of finalists for
Lavallee's consideration. The
members of that panel have
yet to be appointed. Nor has a
date been set to conclude the
search. Lavallee will select the
next fire chief, with the advice

- like the recent one that
passed over Florida can be
the cause.
"Think how exhausted you'd
be if you ran two Boston mara-
thons back to back," Rogers said,
describing the energy expended
by birds in their migrations.
"High winds can cause the birds
to hold up."
Grosbeaks and orioles migrate
regularly through Florida.
Both are migrating from
southern Mexico, the Yucatan

discussed

By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

A local restaurateur spent
a week recently videotaping
the downtown parking situ-
ation, documenting what he
said are activities that reduce
available parking near his
establishment.
The activities ranged from
apartment dwellers and ten-
ants rubbing off the chalk
mark left by police meter read-
ers patrolling the area so they
can extend their stay, to mer-
chants and their employees
taking up prime parking on the
main downtown avenues and
in nearby public parking lots.
That, and learning that at
least a third or more, of the
parking spaces in and around
Centennial Park are taken
up by seasonal employees,
raised a key policy question:
Is it the city's responsibility to
provide parking for downtown
merchants?
Mindy Pieper, executive
director of Venice MainStreet,
said that of 60 businesses that
responded to a survey, 36 have
their own dedicated parking
but it doesn't cover all their
needs. Twenty-four said they
do not provide parking spaces
for employees, leaving about
100 seasonal employees with-
out any dedicated parking. An
estimated 150 businesses are
in the immediate area.
While some restaurant own-
ers said they'd be willing to
hire a shuttle or valet service,
they first need to know where
the vehicles will be parked.
Customers pay a price when
they exceed parking time
limits.
"If we are going to bring peo-
ple to Venice," said Cafe Venice

The "Unconditional Surrender" statue in Sarasota was lowered to the ground after a car crashed into its base on
Thursday. This is what it looked like on Friday.


Wounded sailor and his nurse bearing up under jokes


By RICHARD DYMOND
BRADENTON HERALD

Many paid respects
to the broken statue of
a sailor and a nurse on
Sarasota's bayfront Friday
and some expressed sor-
row that the artwork has
now become the object of
jokes.
Following Thursday's
noon car crash, the dam-
aged statue was lowered
to the ground, where it
will rest on its side for the
foreseeable future.
As officials with The
Sarasota Public Art Fund
and Community Founda-
tion of Sarasota County
Inc., and Larry Thompson,
president of Ringling Col-
lege of Art and Design, all
hit the phones Friday to
see how to best go forward
with a plan for repairs, the
statue began to be guarded
around the clock by an
off-duty Sarasota Police
Department officer, said
Clifford Smith, senior plan-
ner for the city of Sarasota.


Meanwhile, the black
humor ran amuck.
"We heard people say-
ing that it took him four
years to persuade her to
lie down with him and he
had to promise her a white
Mercedes," said Taisia Bul-
lard, visiting the statue on
Sarasota's bayfront from
Ukraine with her friend,
Larysa Barabash.
The joke refers to the
fact that the sailor and
nurse, who are kiss-
ing, were designed to be
eternally upright, frozen in
their joyous embrace, with
.^^ ^, 1-^ 1^t ,- 1A t-


woman at noon Thurs-
day suddenly jumped the
median and crashed right
into the sailor's foot, it
eventually led to the statue
being lowered by crane to
the ground at 9 p.m.
The sailor and his girl
are now, indeed, horizontal
and many are not happy
their predicament is the
stuff of humor.
"I think the sailor is a
hometown hero because if
his foot hadn't been there
that woman would have
driven right into Sara-
sota Bay," said Alli Trippy,
^.^+ P- -t n'- C^ ^^,-1


fellow actors and film
crew colleagues, including
Youki Uchida, Jesse Sage
and Gallagher, wanted to
remind people that the
statue, called "Uncondi-
tional Surrender," honors a
sacred moment, the end of
World War II, when a sailor
in New York planted an


exuberant kiss on a nurse.
"To me, the statue
symbolizes love and
overwhelming emotion,"
Trippy added. "Besides, it's
totally adorable."
"It's campy, but charm-
ing," Sage said.
A call to Thompson of
Ringling College to ask

about the repair plan was
not immediately returned.
"Dr. Thompson is the
adviser when it comes to
the statue," Smith said
Friday. "I am sure he and
others were on the phone
constantly today and
are still putting a plan
together."

Study reveals housing discrimination


By STEVEN J. SMITH
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Results of a recent
study showed instances
of housing discrimina-
tion throughout Sarasota
County, based on race
and disability.
The 144-page study,
which was conducted by
Pittsburgh-based con-
sulting firm Mullin and
Lonergan Associates and
cost the city of Sarasota
and Sarasota County
$28,400, went on to say
that minorities and the
disabled were illegally
discriminated against
while applying for home
mortgages or rentals.
The study depicted
one case, filed in 2004,
that related to property
in North Port, alleging
that zoning and land-use
ordinances were used to
discriminate on the basis
of disability. The case
remains open.
In February and March
2011, six fair-housing
tests were conducted in
North Port. Discrimina-
tion was found in three of
three disability tests and


three of three race tests,
while nearly 75 percent
of rental housing tests
conducted throughout
Sarasota County resulted
in discrimination on the
basis of race or disability.
The study went on to
say that "black households
are disproportionately
represented among public
housing residents and on
the waiting lists for public
housing ... indicating a
disproportionate need
among this racial group
for affordable housing."
Additionally, from 2008
through 2010, 11,209
mortgage loan applica-
tions were denied across
Sarasota County and,
according to the study,
"mortgage-loan denial
rates among racial and
ethnic minority applicants
were higher than for white
applicants. A substan-
tial portion of denied
applications did not
state a reason for denial,
even though lenders are
required by federal law to
provide at least one pri-
mary reason for denial."
While the overall lower-
income denial rate was


24.2 percent, the denial
rates for lower-income
blacks, households of
"other race" (consisting
of mainly Native Ameri-
cans), Hispanics and
Asians were 42.2 percent,
40.8 percent, 30.4 per-
cent and 30.4 percent,
respectively.
Sarasota County Com-
missioner Carolyn Mason
was "troubled" with the
study's findings.
"What we have to do
as a county is get more
details on that and work
real hard to eliminate it,"
Mason said. "Because I
don't want to see dis-
crimination anymore in
Sarasota County, and I'm
sure my colleagues feel
the same way."
When asked if the
roughly $12 million in
income derived from the
sale of 2,000 tax-aban-
doned lots in North Port
several years ago which
was supposed to be ear-
marked at least in part for
the provision of affordable
housing has been used
for low-income housing,
County Commissioner Jon
Thaxton said the county


"has been proactive in
using available funds from
time to time to provide
access to housing, but
without regard to minority
classes."
In 2004, county com-
missioners said they
planned to use proceeds
from the county's portion
of sales of the tax-aban-
doned lots for low-income
housing in North Port. The
county split 45 percent
of the proceeds from the
lots with the city of North
Port, which received the
rest of the money. The city
promised it would open a
community center and fix
more roads with its share
of the profits, and did.
"We are not the police
for enforcing the federal
Fair Housing Act," said
Thaxton, who was on the
commission at the time
of the promise. "We were
suggesting to that consul-
tant that we are doing a
darned good job in terms
of job creation and access
to employment, that
would then lead to access
to housing. But all of that
was totally left out of their
report."


Don Hadsell, director of
housing and community
development, said many
of the violations cited in
the study took place in
the private sector, not
under direct control of
the city of Sarasota or
Sarasota County.
"But we have an obliga-
tion to point those out
and to provide training
and educate people on
how to comply with the
fair housing law," Hadsell
added. "And there is an
action plan attached to
the study, and I cer-
tainly hope that it can be
implemented."
That action plan
includes the following
suggestions:
Increase home-owner-
ship opportunities among
minority households.
Increase the supply of
decent, affordable housing
throughout the county.
Amend Sarasota Hous-
ing Authority policies and
documents to comply
with applicable federal
laws and authorities.
Improve processes for
allocating and reporting
entitlement funds.


Support fair-housing
education and outreach
programs.
Ensure that members
of protected classes are
represented on boards
and commissions dealing
with housing issues.
Ensure that the Sara-
sota Office of Housing
and Community Develop-
ment Division's Language
Access Plan complies
with laws and regulations.
Ensure that local zon-
ing ordinances comply
with the Fair Housing Act.
Hadsell said the study's
action plan is "reason-
able, and something we
can do in a rather timely
manner with our staff."
Mason agreed.
"I think one of the ways
we can solve discrimina-
tion is to be more pro-
active about what our
fair-housing policies are,
and work with housing
providers and the gen-
eral public to make sure
they're aware of what
those policies are and
probably get some reports
on a more regular basis,"
she said. "This report was
a slap in the face."


Group purchases parcels near day spa


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

A partnership led by a
holistic physician from
Brooklyn, N.Y., bought
five parcels off Ortiz
Boulevard, near the Warm
Mineral Springs Day Spa,
in November.
The parcels are west,
southwest and south of
the day spa. One is in
unincorporated Sarasota
County. The others are in
the city of North Port.
Owner Grigory
Pogrebinsky has visited
the area for 15 years.
Operating as WMS of
Sarasota LLC, he decided
one parcel likely will
include a medical office/
spa facility with residen-
tial use on top. It also was
described as a holistic
clinic.
Initially, the remainder
of the property was to
be residential. But when
Pogrebinsky learned
more about the city and
county's plans for the day
spa, he got more people
involved in his project.
The purchase was
announced Tuesday dur-
ing the joint meeting of


the city of North Port and
Sarasota County commis-
sions regarding the future
of the day spa, which they
purchased in December
2010 for $5.5 million.
"We're here today
really to listen to what
the city's and county's
intentions are in regard
to the 81 acres," saidW.
Kevin Russell, an attor-
ney from North Port who
represents Pogrebinsky. "I
don't see anything that is
in conflict with what my
clients intend to do with
their land."
Pogrebinsky, who was
in the audience, heard
city and county officials,
plus residents, speak
about how they feel the
day spa should be devel-
oped. Russell noted that
Pogrebinsky is very con-
cerned about the capacity
of the 87-degree spring.
"The spring is very
small (1.4 acres)," Rus-
sell said. "So whatever
is done, he does have a
concern that the spring
not be overutilized. It has
a limited capacity. One of
his concerns is that that
be respected."
By attending the


meeting and having
a representative, Joel
Freedman, announce the
parcel purchases publicly,
Pogrebinsky was signal-
ing a desire to work with
the city and county when
they develop their "mas-
ter plan" for the day spa,
Freedman said.
Asked if Pogrebinsky
has any desire to join
with the city and county
on public-private part-
nerships regarding North
Port's lone tourist attrac-
tion, Russell said it is too
early now to talk about
that.
"Clearly though, he
would like to work with
the city and the county so
that those two projects,
at least, blend together,"
Russell said. "To say that
he has a specific plan is
probably more than he
does."
One of the parcels,
about 4.5 acres, "would
be an excellent hotel site,"
Freedman said. "It's a
possibility. We're not here
to say exactly what we
want to do, except for the
medical facility."
Freedman said that
when the city and county


"get ready to move for-
ward, remember that we
own this property." He
added that Pogrebinsky
will be working with the


economic-development
corporations of both
North Port and Sarasota
County "to do whatever
is best, you think, for


us to complement what
you decide to do for the
Springs."

been blessed. We now will
have an angel in heaven
watching down upon us.

Rowing facility, Loveland get state funding


FROM ABC 7

The Benderson row-
ing facility and Venice's
Loveland Center will
receive funding from the
state under the $70 bil-
lion state budget signed
by Gov. Rick Scott.
Scott approved $5 mil-
lion for the Florida World


Aquatic Center located
on the Sarasota/Manatee
County line. The venue is
already under construc-
tion, but developers say
the funding will keep
them ahead of schedule.
A $20 million invest-
ment from Sarasota
County, $1.5 million from
Manatee and $2 million


from Benderson Develop-
ment Corp. is still needed
for the facility's comple-
tion. The governor said
that if certain economic
goals are not met with the
rowing center, the state
will be able to take back
its $5 million investment.
Also receiving funding
is the Loveland Center in


Venice. The organization
will be given $1 million
to help construct housing
for the people it serves.
The Loveland Center
cares for developmentally
disabled adults.
The rowing center and
Loveland were actually
both vetoed from last
year's budget.

Small rise in county crime rate


By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
and DREW WINCHESTER
STAFF WRITERS

Sarasota County saw a
slight increase in over-
all crime in 2011, up
1.7 percent, according to
the Florida Department
of Law Enforcement. In
2010, Sarasota had seen a
6 percent decrease.
In 2010, there were


12 murders in Sarasota
County, compared to 17
in 2011, including the
death of Warm Mineral
Springs resident Robert
Mann, 32 in June. Mann
was allegedly shot by
Katrelle Johnson, then 18,
while collecting money in
a drug deal at the triplex
where Mann lived.
In unincorporated
Sarasota County, which


includes the Springs,
there were 8,681 arrests,
including eight murders,
2,224 burglaries, 5,420
larcenies and 557 aggra-
vated assaults.
Countywide, Sarasota
saw 14,604 arrests in
2011, up slightly from
14,360 in 2010.
"(The Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office) put out
our own crime report in


March," SCSO spokes-
woman Wendy Rose said
Monday.
The county's report
showed crime up almost
5.4 percent overall in
2011, compared to 2010.
Sheriff Tom Knight said
then he expected some
of the burglary, larceny,
fraud and battery crime
statistics to increase
because of the recent


changes in cracking down
on pain-management
clinics and illegal pre-
scription drug usage.
Statewide, crime
remained at the same
level, decreasing only
one-tenth of a percentage
point year over year.
Domestic violence
offenses decreased
1.5 percent in 2011 across
Florida; violent crime


increased 3.7 percent;
and nonviolent crimes
saw hardly any change
with a 0.04 percent
increase.
The FDLE also reported
that $1.3 billion of
property was stolen in
2011, while $279,000 of
it was recovered by law
enforcement.

Kearney welcomes son into business


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

History is repeating
itself at Kearney Moving
& Storage Inc., 641 North
Tamiami Trail, Nokomis
as for a second time in
the company's 35-year
history the owner's son
has joined the business.
"I was in college at
University of Florida
when my father pur-
chased the business from
Grady Hough in June
1976, and graduating,
I came to Nokomis to
manage this business,"
said John Kearney, whose
son John Patrick (JP)
is now company vice
president.
Hough Transportation
Inc. was founded in 1962;
Grady Hough Jr. and his
father operated with two
men and a truck.
"The significance of
2012 is we are becom-
ing an operator with
NationalVan Lines of


Broadview, Ill., hav-
ing renewed a former
arrangement," Kearney
said. "Currently our six
largest straight trucks are
being re-signed to carry
their official logos and
the international artist
Wyland painted murals
with whales underwater
and dolphins.
In the Nokomis Park
Plaza location, Kearney
has 20,000 square feet
of storage, most of it
air-conditioned, ranging
from small units to those
capable of storing the
contents of a good-size
house. Currently, there
are 13 employees with
service records averag-
ing 14 years who have
undergone rigorous
background screening
and fingerprinting.
The bulk of the busi-
ness 400 jobs annu-
ally is local. Kearney
estimates that as a
hands-on owner he has
been responsible for


more than 24,000 moves
during 35 years. Jobs can
be as small as a reloca-
tion of a few pieces of
furniture for someone
moving to a retirement
community, including
packing boxes.
"When I started it was
with the assistance from
three office gals, and
we were doing a lot of
long-distance business
up north," said Kearney.
"I had one old truck,
which broke down a lot,
and very soon I learned it
was not just about office
management.
"For eight years I sold
business during the day,
steered long-distance
business within the
state to the weekend,
then took off on a Friday
with the truck, finish-
ing Sunday evening
so I would be back in
the office on Monday
morning. Beginning
with household busi-
ness, eventually we got


into national accounts
with multiple moves of
company employees and
office relocating."
In 1979 he bought a
big semi-tractor trailer to
supersede the little box
van; it was the start of an
expansion as they grew
from two to five employ-
ees. In 1984, he bought
his father out, married
and his wife entered
the business, managing
the office while he ran
sales and the moving
operation.
JP has worked some
summers using time off
from college and a year
ago decided he wanted
to get into the business.
"It is a good opportu-
nity for him, and if he
takes it over I can relax a
little more, but initially
he has to learn on the
road with the guys, the
way I found I learned the
most," said Kearney.

Brewburgers makes it to order


Looking forward to
growing with the com-
munity in their family-
friendly pub are Michael
and Elizabeth Bacon,
new owners with partners
Dennis and Sara Sacco of
Brewburgers, 370 Com-
mercial Court, at the 1-75
Jacaranda interchange.
Doing as much as pos-
sible in-house, they form
their own burgers, roast
their own beef, cut their
own chicken and fish
and prepare everything
to order.
From Randolph, Vt.,
Bacon began his career as
a dishwasher, eventually
moving up to managing a
country inn for five years.
He owned three restau-
rants in Killington, includ-
ing the Moon River Tavern,


then moved to Boston,
where for five years he ran
Legals Seafood restaurant.
In Saratoga, N.Y., he
helped run a steakhouse
for two years before
moving to Venice in 2005,
where he was a waiter at
the Crow's Nest.
The flooring store he
opened was short-lived
due to the economy, so
he joined Jim and Karen
Hall to open Brewburg-
ers. When the Halls
retired recently, his family,
including brother-in-law/
chef Sacco, came south
to join in this restaurant,
serving lunch and dinner
Monday through Saturday
from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and
Sunday noon to 9 p.m.

Marinated meats
Providing organic beef
and produce from local
suppliers and growers
and offering northern
marinated meats is the
objective of Dana Chase,
owner of Butcher's Gour-
met, 1086 Tamiami Trail,
Osprey, just south of the
Tervis Tumbler store.
Unable to acquire
marinated meats locally,
he decided to bring them
south, to sell with local
meats, chickens and sea-
food in his large whole-
sale and retail meat store
in the butcher shop.


He started the business
with a kiosk at the farm-
ers market, where he
sold Wisconsin cheeses,
Bavarian breads, gluten-
free foods and Strudels
bakery items. Expand-
ing with the opening of
the store, he now offers
New England marinated
meats and chicken
marinades, hot dogs,
clam chowder, pizza and
seafood specialties like
gourmet stuffed clams.
A residential home
builder in Danvers,
Mass., while vacation-
ing on Siesta Key in
2004 Chase decided to
retire. Finding land on
Blackburn Point Road
in Osprey, he acquired it
and built a small com-
munity, with a home for
himself, moving there
permanently in 2010.
Store hours are
9 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday
through Saturday, and
Sunday afternoons. Call

ten," saidWochnik, whose
intention is to grow the

Doctor does robotic surgery


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Technology is chang-
ing surgical procedures
with the introduction of
minimally invasive da
Vinci Single-Site robotic
surgery.
Recently, Dr. Chris
Willkomm, general sur-
geon at Venice Regional
Medical Center, became
the first general sur-
geon from Venice to
Naples to perform the
first minimally invasive
laparoscopic gallbladder
procedure.
"I was pleased to be
involved in this technical
advancement and even
happier when the patient
said he had absolutely


no post-operative pain,"
said Willkomm.
Since this first cutting-
edge procedure he has
performed several more.
Traditionally, daVinci
surgery has been per-
formed using four inci-
sions, with the patient
usually being required to
stay in the hospital over-
night. The new machine
needs only one cut but
offers more stability and
greater triangulation
and dexterity, so surgery
patients are generally
able to leave the hospital
the same day. This new
single-site computer-
assisted surgical tech-
nique was approved by
the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration last


December.
"We are proud to
continue to be Sarasota
County's leading pro-
vider of robotic surgery"
said Pete Wozniak, CEO
of Venice Regional Medi-
cal Center. "The daVinci
Single-Site technique is
an innovative addition
to the hospital's robot-
ics program and will
provide a better patient
experience with quicker
recovery and less pain."
Venice Regional
Medical Center is the
only facility in Sarasota,
Manatee and Charlotte
counties equipped with
two state-of-the-art da
Vinci Si Surgical Systems.

Indian Mound, Lampp House now designated historic


By STEVEN J. SMITH
SUN CORRESPONDENT


The Sarasota County Com-
mission Tuesday unanimously
approved historic designation
status for Englewood's Paulson
Point Midden, known locally
as Indian Mound Park, and the
Lampp House.
Indian Mound, 210 Winston
Drive, represents the lives and
lifestyles of native North Ameri-
can Indians and illustrates an
ecological adaptation that is


unique to Sarasota County,
according to Jody Pracht,
archaeologist with the Sarasota
County History Center.
"My excitement about this
process is that Paulson Point
is the first archaeological site
listed in the local register of
historic places," Pracht said.
"We've only had structures
listed up to this point. Now that
the midden is listed, any future
activities that would alter the
integrity to the archaeological
site such as excavations, for


example would have to go
before the Historic Preservation
Board to be approved."
Lorrie Muldowney, man-
ager of the History Center, was
equally enthusiastic about the
approval of the historic designa-
tion of the Jesse "Pat" and Edith
Lampp House and Garage, built
in 1928 at 604 W. Perry St.
Muldowney said that the
house, which has 32 win-
dows for ample sunlight, and
garage, which was constructed
as the Lampps' daughter's


honeymoon house, represent
the heritage of Englewood in
both their architectural integ-
rity and their style.
"We're having a preservation
celebration in Englewood on
Saturday, May 5," Muldowney
said. "We will be featuring the
midden from 10 a.m. until
noon, and several people will
be opening historic buildings
between noon and 2 p.m. -
and one of them will be the
Lampp House, as well as Green
Street Church and the Lemon


BayWomen's Club."
Englewood resident Don
Schilke, a member of the preser-
vation group Friends of Indian
Mound Park, was elated with the
designations especially the
midden, which he said contains
ancient and irreplaceable relics.
"Some of those artifacts
date back to 1,400 B.C., before
ancient Greece, which dates
back to around 700-800 B.C.,"
Schilke said. "We have history
right here in Englewood. And it
should be protected."


MPO agrees to add second North Port resident


By CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

Members of the Sara-
sota/Manatee Metropoli-
tan Planning Organization
gave the go-ahead on
Monday to allow a second
representative from the
city of North Port to sit
on its Citizens Advisory
Committee. However, any
changes to the MPO board
itself may have to wait for
at least a year, according
to MPO Executive Director
Michael Howe.
In his report during the
MPO's regular meeting at
the University of South
Florida Sarasota-Manatee
Campus, CAC Chair Dale
Stephenson told the MPO
that members voted 9-5
during their meeting
earlier this month to rec-
ommend the MPO board
consider adding another
person from North Port to
the committee.
The ensuing discussion
about additional North
Port representation see-

restoring the patient to a healthier state.
Moreover, the chiropractic approach is
preventive in nature and helps ward off
potential disease. According to chiropractic
philosophy, a strong, flexible, and properly
aligned spine is necessary for uninterrupted
communication between the brain and various
body parts and systems. A healthy body will
restore itself.

Recently, it has been
Maturo who has spear-

Howe said the new

make a final decision at its
June 25 meeting.
Meanwhile, the MPO
board is waiting for a reap-

governor's office regarding
the possibility of a merger


with the Charlotte County-
Punta Gorda MPO. Such a
letter was received in 2003,
according to Howe, forcing
the Sarasota/Manatee MPO
to conduct "a very labori-
ous and tedious process" in
2004. While the two MPOs
did not consolidate, they
did formalize an interlocal
agreement.

SUN NEWSPAPERS


OUR VIEW



Medicaid is the counties' problem now


It's hard to believe Florida's Medicaid
billing system is so flawed that
it could run up more than
$300 million in disputed bills
during the past decade.
But, apparently, that's what has
happened.
It works like this: A Medicaid
patient comes into Sarasota Memo-
rial Hospital, say, and ends up staying
for a long time. SMH sends the bill
off to the state, which in turn bills the
county for 35 percent of the "home
county" costs. When the county
gets the bill, it suspects something
is wrong; the address doesn't seem
right. So it challenges the bill.
In the past, these bills have floated
in limbo awaiting resolution. Sarasota
County's past bills now stand at more
than $6 million. Charlotte County's
are more than $1 million, DeSoto


County's $500,000. That's a ridiculous
situation.
Legislation recently passed and
signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott in
essence accepts as fact the premise
that the underlying problems can't
be resolved, that the system can't
be transformed in a way that makes
it more accurate. The new law sim-
ply bypasses the old, dysfunctional
system by placing the burden of proof
when resolving disputed bills on local
governments. It requires counties to
pay a blanket 85 percent of disputed
bills for hospitals and nursing homes,
regardless of their accuracy. It also
allows the state to simply withhold
money otherwise due counties in state
sales tax checks.
Counties are rightfully upset about
this. They liken it to having to pay
questionable credit card charges: Just


put up with the 15 percent discount
and shut up.
This does seem a heavy-handed
solution that will unfairly burden local
taxpayers. County officials put some
of the blame on a four-year-old state
computer system that appeared to
cause more and more problems. They
also argue the shift in the burden less-
ens incentives for the state to figure
out and fix the fundamental prob-
lems of the system. It's hard to argue
otherwise.
Sarasota County last week became
the latest government to join a lawsuit
due to be filed by the Florida Associa-
tion of Counties. So it appears the
matter eventually could be resolved
in the courts, although counties will
have to comply until the courts rule
otherwise, if in fact they do.
Rep. Doug Holder, R-Osprey, voted


for the bill, but said he'd prefer the
state get to the bottom of the root
cause by conducting a thorough
audit. The fact is, taxpayers will end
up footing the Medicaid bill one way
or another. Sarasota may pay for
some Charlotte residents who cross
the line; Charlotte may end up paying
for Sarasotans. We want the system
to reflect accurate charges, as much
as possible, but the bill will be paid
by the public. Beyond fighting it out
in court, the state has deeper obliga-
tion to figure out a way to improve a
flawed system. Holder's idea would
address that.
The real problem is with the inac-
curacies and flaws in the system. In
the end, it just offends our sense of
fairness and competence that the
state has given up trying to solve that
problem.


New at the Gondo


I thought I would take some
time today to introduce you
to some of our newest talent
to join the Gondolier Sun's
advertising staff.
Our first new rep to come
on board is none other than
Charleen Myers, whom most of
you will know from the Venice
Area Chamber of Commerce.
We are both proud and excited
to have Charleen represent our
products here at SCMG. Char-
leen's enthusiasm and focus
separate her from the ordinary,
and if she comes to visit your
business you will quickly see
what I speak of.
Our second new rep is Kim
Phillips. Kim comes to us with
a wealth of experience in the
mortgage-lending business
and it was indeed a lucky day
for our company to meet her
in person. She is active in our
community, respected in the
business aspect of things and
quite driven. Her ethics, talent
and ambition will be her big-
gest allies in our business, and
she knows the value of putting
the customer's needs first in
negotiating.
Tara Shea rounds out the new
rep parade. Tara is an internal
candidate who has been in
just about every department
except editorial. Tara is a quick
study who dedicates herself to
multiple endeavors all the time.
Her hunger for knowledge sets
her apart from most people
and she understands the value
of making people feel at ease
when she is around. It is a
pleasure to watch our employ-
ees grow, and Tara is a shining
example here at the Gondolier
Sun.


Hopefully, you can see we
have made some top-notch
selections to help our cli-
ents grow their businesses
as we move out of a volatile
economic condition into an
economy that is growing. I am
quite pleased not only with
our recent additions, but the
entire staff that works so hard
to bring you the Venice Gondo-
lier Sun. (Jan Lugar only has 86
days left, by the way!)
Let's keep this space focused
on what's happening with the
Gondolier Sun staff, shall we?
On May 23 I am going to be
arrested and hauled off to the
Venice Lock-up 2012 for the
Muscular Dystrophy Associa-
tion. The only way to get out is
for me to make bail. That's the
bad news; the good news is it
is only $3,200 in bail to get me
out of the slammer, and you
can help.
It is indeed for a great
cause the annual muscular
dystrophy fund drive and I
and others are willing partici-
pants in this event. The MDA
is a wonderful organization
that has been battling muscu-
lar dystrophy and the issues
it brings to family and friends
for years. I was not hesitant
when approached to be a part
of this fundraising effort. Here
is how you can help: Go to
http://www2.mda.org/goto/
timsmolarick to donate and
help me get out of jail.
Anyone who knows me will
tell you that I am a believer
that this and other medical
problems will be cured; it's just
a matter of time and money
dedicated to making it happen.
I would appreciate any support
for this worthy cause either
by donating to my release or
to one of the many Venice
residents being arrested for
this cause.
I thank you in advance for
your participation and look
forward to a quick, nonissue
arrest and release. I am count-
ing on you.

Tim Smolarick is publisher of
the Gondolier Sun.

Questions. I'd like to have
the medical profession ask
some big questions about
autistic children. How many
unvaccinated are autistic?
I'd like somebody to look at
that. Also, cancer: How many
women who have never had an
abortion or used contraceptive
pills or things like that, have
cancer? Let's look at some of
those things. Maybe there are
some answers there that are
not being accepted or consid-
ered, and they need to be.
P.S. A postscript to my
roundabout call about the
school bus: The article about
the school bus crash at the
roundabout demonstrates why
it should be one lane only. The
car trying to exit in front of the
bus would not have occurred.
Also, I'd like to see any vehicle
as large as a bus try to stay in
its lane while going around the
circle. Not sure it could even
be done.
You pay. I'm reading false
comments referring to birth
control used by women. The
Catholics and Republicans
are not trying to take away
a woman's right to use birth
control, they just don't want
to pay for something that is
against their principles. Use all
the birth control you want. Just
pay for it yourself.
No war. To the lady worried
about the Republican can-
didates discussing her birth
control, you need to know
that you've been tricked. No
Republican candidate brought
up that obscure subject. It
was your Democratic-friendly
debate host, George Stepha-
nopoulos, who first brought
that topic up in a February
debate. It was a hypothetical
trick question put out there
with the hope of gaining a
juicy sound bite the Democrats
could exploit. The Republicans
on stage were totally confused
about why they were even
talking about this topic. It was
a red herring that changed the
discussion from force-funding


Let 'em


Have It
for abortion to a new topic,
contraception. Then the hear-
ing with Sandra Fluke followed
and major media called it a
congressional hearing, but it
was only a staged, all-Dem-
ocrat show to keep the con-
traceptive talk alive. Did you
think it was a real congressio-
nal hearing? I did until finding
out otherwise. Then came the
claim that Republicans are
running a war on women. If
you are a Limbaugh listener,
you'd get all this straight and
you'd understand who put
the talk of birth control out
there, amidst more important
issues, as you said. But Obama
and the Democrats can't run
on those issues, they have to
change the topic. Unless you're
an idiot, you know that no
politician is going to restrict
anybody's birth control. And
there is no war on women.
This was bogus from the start.
Grateful. How thankful I
was when I looked up a few
weeks ago and saw a helicop-
ter bringing water to a fire
here in Venice near the Frank
Theatres and very close to my
house. I'm thankful we had the
airport here and the helicop-
ter, which is very necessary


to keep people out of danger
from fires.
Bar ban. It seems to me
the cops could patrol parking
lots at bars where everyone is
drinking. Then, they key up
and drive home. How many
of us really get drunk at the
beach? I, for one, have never
seen one. I've seen plenty in
bars. So outlaw bars.
Publix, please. I see that
Publix is going in at two loca-
tions in Nokomis and Lau-
rel. We in South Venice very
much need a Publix here. It
was taken out years ago and
Lifestyle was put in. Then they
built a new one on the island
and on EastVenice Avenue, a
new one on Jacaranda up by
the roundabout, and we still
don't have one in South Venice.
The only one we have is down
across from Walmart at Venice
Village Shoppes, and the park-
ing is atrocious down there.
There is just no way to get to
that store because the parking
is so bad. I think one would
fit nicely in the former Kmart
store here in South Venice. We
need one here.
No Rush. What? A caller sug-
gested that students listen to
Rush Limbaugh so they could
get the real facts and logic. I
didn't think anyone listened to
that big bag of wind anymore.
Limbaugh and facts? Egad!

Preventing diabetes one hour at a time


Talk isn't cheap when
it comes to addressing
Type 2 diabetes, a com-
plicated yet preventable
disease that is threaten-
ing the health of adults
across the county.
In fact, in a recent
article for the Wall Street
Journal, UnitedHealth
Group said that pre-
venting the disease can
reduce health care costs
about $20,000 a year for
someone with advanced
stages of diabetes to
about $3,700 to care for
someone with pre-diabe-
tes whose elevated blood
sugar is not high enough


to be considered diabetes.
The April 16 article
reviewed the success seen
the past several years in
a diabetes prevention
program overseen by the
Centers for Disease Con-
trol and Prevention and
operated by local YMCAs.
UnitedHealth Group is
a national partner of the
program, called YMCA's
Diabetes Prevention
Program.
Adults taking part
in the YMCAs DPP are
generally referred to the
program by their physi-
cians as a preventive step
in fighting diabetes. The
program takes people
out of a clinical setting
and places them in small,
face-to-face support
groups that get together
for one hour a week for
16 weeks at their local
YMCA. A trained profes-
sional leads the group
through discussions
about healthy eating and


exercise. More signifi-
cant, they also create a
comfortable support
group for the enrollees
to discuss some of the
emotional reasons why
they need help changing
their lifestyles.
"Providing support
and opportunities that
empower people to be
healthy and live well
is part of the YMCA's
charitable purpose,"
said Jennifer Tucker-
Mogensen, Healthy Com-
munities Coordinator for
the South County Family
YMCA, which is one of
the early providers of
the YMCA's DPP. "The
lifestyle choices learned
through the YMCA's
Diabetes Prevention
Program not only reduce
risk for type 2 diabetes,
but also create lifelong
changes in the way that
individuals approach
health and well being."
The CDC projects that


by 2050, one in three
adults in the United
States could develop
diabetes without changes
to current lifestyle and
health trends. Locally
that number is slightly
lower, but still alarming.
"Approximately 20
percent of individuals in
Sarasota County are at
increased risk of devel-
oping type 2 diabetes
because they are obese,"
said Catherine Howard,
Ph.D., of the Florida
Diabetes Prevention and
Control Program.
Thanks to national
grant funding, the South
County Family YMCA will
be offering additional
YMCA DPP programs
beginning in May of
this year. The goals of
the YMCAs Diabetes
Prevention Program are
to reduce and maintain
individual weight loss by
at least 7 percent and to
increase physical activity


to 150 minutes per week,
or slightly more than 20
minutes a day. After the
initial 16 sessions, par-
ticipants meet monthly
for up to a year for added
support in maintaining
their lifestyle changes.
"The research shows
that with lifestyle
changes and modest
weight reduction, a
person with prediabetes
can prevent or delay the
onset of type 2 diabetes
by 58 percent," Tucker-
Mogensen said. "This
program saves lives along
with financial savings for
the individual and our
greater society."
The YMCA is com-
mitted to making the
program available to
everyone in the commu-
nity. All individuals with
a body mass index (BMI)
of 25 or greater and who
have two additional risk
factors or have a diag-
nosis of prediabetes are


eligible. Contact Tucker-
Mogensen at the South
County Family YMCA,
941-492-9622, ext. 299, to
find out more.

Prevention Programs are

schedule is:
Wednesday at 6 p.m.

Monday at noon at

League taking lead in pollution solutions


STEPHEN
SUAU
GUEST COLUMNIST

On March 22, I
attended a water-quality
seminar hosted by
the civic-based, not-
for-profit Lemon Bay
League. The Lemon Bay
League is a bi-county
coalition of homeowner
representatives in the
Lemon Bay watershed
including Manasota Key,
West Charlotte, Engle-
wood and SouthVenice.
As such, the seminar
was low budget with no
government sponsorship,
and somewhat under
the radar (the confer-
ence was actually held
at a local church), but


the significance of this
type of citizen grassroots
effort was exceeded only
by the substance of the
seminar.
The seminar featured
three stellar speakers
presenting emerg-
ing research and pilot
projects that rely on
innovative technologies
that reduce nutrient
pollution to waterways.
While the focus of the
presentations was on
reducing potential
nitrogen pollution from
on-site wastewater
treatment systems (also
known as septic tank
and drain field systems),
these new technolo-
gies have a potentially
broader application in
overall nitrogen reduc-
tion through a natural


process called de-nitrifi-
cation that uses natural
materials and methods
including plant biomass,
wood residue and chips,
expanded clay and
elemental sulfur.
The Lemon Bay
League communities
have been particu-
larly interested in new,
cost-effective nutrient
management technolo-
gies that can protect
Lemon Bay and its tidal
creeks. In the South
Venice community there
has been significant
interest among residents
in natural processes
that can restore and
protect the health of our
waterways.
The speakers included
some of the most knowl-
edgeable and respected


water quality experts
in the state, including
Damann Anderson of
Hazen and Sawyer, who
is the lead researcher for
the Florida Department
of Health's Onsite Sew-
age Nitrogen Reduction
Strategies Project; Pio
Lombardo of Lombardo
Associates, who devel-
oped the most effective
passive nitrogen-reduc-
tion technology by the
project, known as Nitrex;
and MartyWanielista
with the Stormwater
Academy at the Univer-
sity of Central Florida.
The direct engagement
between citizen-based
Lemon Bay League and
emerging science is
particularly promising in
the context of the ongo-
ing science, legal and


political debates between
the state and federal gov-
ernment over the reduc-
tion of nutrient pollution
in Florida. While both the
state and federal govern-
ment appear to agree
on the need to address
elevated nutrient pollu-
tion in Florida's water-
ways, there will still likely
be a significant amount
of effort expended to
resolve remaining and
legitimate scientific
issues.
Based upon the infor-
mation presented at
the Lemon Bay League
seminar, it is clear that
Florida could be on the
national forefront of
developing new, innova-
tive and cost-effective
strategies to reduce
nutrient pollution in


waterways. As nutrient
pollution in waterways
is a national problem,
these state investments
in research and develop-
ment of these strategies
could place Florida in a
unique economic posi-
tion of not just address-
ing the state's nutrient
problems but exporting
this expertise to the rest
of the country.
The Lemon Bay League
videotaped the seminar.
Anyone who missed the
seminar and is interested
in this topic can con-
tact Lemon Bay League
president Kreg Maheu at
941-412-1293 to obtain a
copy of a DVD for $15.

professional engineer and
resident of South Venice.


I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Common sense
not so common
Editor:
According to newspa-
pers, broadcasts and let-
ters, many people have
problems. They should
demand to know why.
Why are there programs
and activities that cause
more inflation? Why is
there so much waste?
The voters have
elected people who want
more inflation. Dumping
billions and billions of
dollars into the economy
causes inflation and
waste.
Waste and reckless
spending cause inflation
and corruption. Officials
from top to bottom are
still spending too much,
but they believe that all
spending is good.
The voters have elected


officials who want
citizens to be forced to
depend on politicians
who have a different
sense of right and wrong.
Voters should demand
common sense and
civility.

Give the kids a break
Editor:
I want to respond to
Susan Vincent's letter
to the reader regarding
her comments about
the kids standing in
front of Publix asking
"for a handout" to "learn
independence" on their
upcoming school trip to
Philadelphia.
Did it occur to you to
ask the kids what other
ideas for fundraising for


their class trip they have
also done? I am sure they
would have been happy
to tell you. I know these
eighth-graders have been
working hard all year
to raise money for their
class to go to Philadelphia
and see Independence
Hall and the sights of this
great city, a place every
American should visit.
You say one child said,
"To go to Philadelphia,
see the city and to learn
independence." Are you
perhaps taking a gram-
matical error a little too
far? Children of all ages
have stood out in front
of many grocery stores
to raise money for their
cause; is this any differ-
ent? "Ask and you shall
receive" comes to mind.
If you're offended,
walk on; don't give to the
child if you see it as a


"handout." But remem-
ber, when you encounter
children of the future,
keep in mind that to
lend them a hand is not
necessarily a "handout."
And, Ms. Susan, be sure
to pass by the bucket
come July when a group
stands outside Publix
asking for donations for
fireworks for Indepen-
dence Day.
Just for the record, my
child is not in this class.

First yoga, and then ...
Editor:
Free yoga on the beach
is a good thing. People
gather in an orderly
friendly and peaceful
fashion. There is never
any litter. Friendships


have developed. It
is a healthy exercise,
instructed by Elin, a
knowledgeable and car-
ing professional. People
arrive by walking, bikes
or cars. There are smiles
and greetings to friends
and strangers.
Our beautiful Venice
Beach is a perfect set-
ting to bring all of this
together. It can be cold,
wet or very hot. No one
seems to care. They are
enjoying the moment.
There are locals, snow-
birds and lots of tourists.
The numbers are large
at this time, but will
dwindle as people move
to their northern homes
for the summer months.
Unfortunately, there


are those connected with
the county government
who cannot see the for-
est for the trees. Follow
the money trail and be
aware of their short-
sighted behavior. Protect
the pleasures that this
exceptional community
has to offer. There are
many free activities at
the public beaches and
parks drumming, art
classes, musicians, small
bands, concerts, sports,
church groups, etc.
Sadly, if the county is
given the authority to

HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL




Indians glad he's on their side


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

Words like "unfair" and
"ridiculous" are bandied
about every time Ven-
ice's Cooper Hammond
pitches.
It's not unflattering,
from his viewpoint,
when opposing hitters
or coaches are muttering
about the 17-year-old's
submarine-style pitching
and his effectiveness at
pounding the strike zone.
The 6-foot-i, 180-
pound right-handed
reliever has been con-
founding hitters all sea-
son with a combination
of fastballs, sliders and
change-ups.
Hammond leads Venice
in wins (eight), innings
(42 2/3) and strikeouts,
with an ERA of 0.77 and
has been a big reason for
Venice's success.
With runs at a pre-
mium this season,
pitching has been crucial.
Hammond has benefited
from the Indians' late-
scoring heroics to com-
pile his 8-1 record.
"Cooper is a different
kind of pitcher, which
makes him difficult to
hit because most hitters
don't see pitchers throw-
ing from underhand,"
said Venice head coach
Craig Faulkner. "The ball
naturally sinks when
you do that. When you
throw a lot of strikes,
like he does, it's pretty
effective. The more you
see a side-armer they are
easier to hit because it's
such a mystery to you.
You can't figure out how
to pick the ball up. You
are used to picking it up
over their shoulder, now
you are picking it up
down by their kneecap
somewhere."
Hammond's pitch has
so much movement on it
that when he pitches to
a right-handed hitter, his
slider looks like it's about
to hit the batter before
curving over the plate for
a strike.
Hammond started out
as a side-arm pitcher but
it all changed at age 10.
"I was at practice one
day and Coach Callan
came out for AAU and
I had been throwing
side-arm and he told me
to drop down and it just
stuck," said Hammond.
"His parents called
me and he was throw-
ing lower than he should
have at (age) 10 and
he was going to hurt
himself," saidVenice
High pitching coach Jeff
Callan. "I did a few les-
sons with him and it just
wasn't going to change.
I said to start him now,
I think he is going to
be good at it. He threw
from that time on. He
was effective and didn't
throw real hard and didn't
have command of the
zone. He'd get through
the lineup once then they

hard to pick up at first.
"At first it was pretty
hard to grasp that I was


throwing from down
there," said Hammond.
Hammond admitting
to hitting a bunch of hit-
ters with pitches when he
first started.
"For a second I was
going to stop because it
wasn't working out really
well," he said.
However, Hammond
kept with it and worked
hard at perfecting it.
"It's a tremendous
amount of work because
it's different release
points," said Callan about
throwing submarine-
style. "It's almost different
mechanics. If you don't
get low enough, it can
be flat. He's worked very
hard at it to get where he
is at right now."
What makes him tough
is his ability to throw a lot
of strikes.
On the season, Ham-
mond has pitched 42 /3
innings and walked
just six batters with 51
strikeouts.
"He is relentless with
strikes," said Callan. "You
want guys to come in
from bullpen and throw
strike after strike. He
doesn't let hitters breathe.
Hitters don't even get a
breath to refocus. Hitters
that haven't seen him go
in there and think, 'I am
going to take a pitch or
two to get a look at him.'
When they do that, it's
0-2 before they know it
and he can throw a slider
for a strike. He's worked
on a change-up and he
can throw a fastball in
with it and it's very, very
tough."
"Hard to predict any-
body is going to have the
type of season he's had,"
said Faulkner. "Reason
he's been so successful is
he throws strikeouts. He's


come in many times with
bases loaded and got us
out of the jam."
Hammond also likes
coming out of the bull-
pen to shut down teams.
"I like the pressure
more," said Hammond,
who started one game
this season. "I was
way too relaxed when
I started. I don't know
what it was. I like com-
ing in with runners on
base. Gives me more
adrenaline."
Even his own coach or
players want to try to hit
him.
"When you watch him
throw, it's nothing special
until you sit in there (in
the batter's box)," said
Callan. "I've caught him
a few times and I don't
even like to catch him.
I don't even catch him
anymore because there
is so much movement it
makes it very tough to
square the ball up. Even
the other day, Dalton
Guthrie stood in there
and he's never faced him
before and he just shook
his head. He said, 'I don't
see how you can hit
that.'"
Not many have this
season, as Hammond has
allowed just 27 hits.
Hammond's success
has a lot to with him
being comfortable on the
mound.
"Last year was my first
year on varsity and I was
just a sophomore," said
Hammond.
Hammond also worked
on his slider.
"Last year my slider
wasn't very sharp,"
Hammond said. "It was
just floating in there
and I was hitting a lot

Darcangelis said. "Now
that I am almost an

Members of the Lemon

intersections.
Following reports by
local community orga-
nizations of a number of
fender-bender accidents
due to both motorists
and trail users failing to
understand the rules at the
Sarasota Central Parkway
intersection, minimal
changes were made,
said Hauber. Crosswalk
markings were changed
to standard crossover strip-
ing, giving motor traffic the
right of way, and stop signs
were installed on the trail,
putting the responsibility
on trail users to stop for
traffic.
The decision leaves the
trail's intersection with
Laurel Road as the only
controlled crossing, where
traffic is stopped with a red
light when a cyclist presses
the stop-traffic button.
"The delay looks a little
bit high, but I have not
measured it," said Gabriella
Radu, Sarasota County traf-
fic engineer.

installed in 2010, timing

owner Kay Kropac, "we
need to resolve the park-
ing problem. (Now) we
actually penalize our
customers for spending
more time in downtown
... by fining them."
Tired of ongoing
complaints, Venice City
Council on Monday
held a workshop on the
issue, coming away with
a number of potential
solutions.
One that seemed to
find favor is establish-
ing an alternate parking
lot for employees and
tenants, leaving room
for tourists and other
visitors.
"If the city were to
designate satellite park-
ing spaces, unlimited in
their hours, would that
be beneficial for employ-
ees?" asked Council
Member David Sherman.
Shuttles could trans-
port employees to their
place of employment.
Two shuttle owners,
Ron Cushing, general
manager of Venice Street
Legal, and Rumen Tchor,
of AMI Valet Transport in
Sarasota, testified they
are ready and available
to provide service once
the city comes up with a


pedestrian crossings of
that physical distance 10
seconds of walk-time plus
45 seconds for pedestrian
clearance. Last year the
rules were changed to
7 seconds of pedestrian
crossing time from curb to
curb.
Neither Hauber or Radu
has heard anything from
the Friends of the Legacy
Trail about the Laurel
Road crossing, but "we are
always ready to meet with
them to work with them on
a solution," said Hauber.
"Initially, we would
make a count of how
many people arrive at the
intersection and were there
a concern, how it related to
vehicular traffic."
"It is a good time to
take another look at what
happens on the trail and
take account of what has
happened over the first
four years, particularly as
usage increases," said Mike
Gippert, president of the
Friends of the Legacy Trail.
"Four-way intersections
on the trail are a problem
because cyclists rarely
stop. Motorists receive the
heaviest burden if they hit
a cyclist, so more and more
I see them stop. Rush-hour

workable off-site parking
area from which to base
their operations.
Council members
seemed open to extend-
ing street parking from
two to three hours during
season, and even enforc-
ing parking time limits
year-round, if it helps.
There was some dis-
cussion of changing West
Venice Avenue back to a
single lane with diagonal
parking, as it was before
the late '70s. Dave Farley,
a former city council
member, championed
the idea several years
ago. City planner Chad
Minor said that would
create an additional 40
spaces, estimated to cost
up to $17,000 each.
"Angled parking is a
much better use of the
area," Minor said. "(But) I
don't know if it's neces-
sarily worth it."
Mayor John Holic
asked for financial data
on the city's debt load
to better determine the
feasibility of a more long-
term but expensive, solu-
tion a parking garage.
"We do have a park-
ing issue," said Council
Member Jeanette Gates.
"And we've had it for a
long time, for 30 years.
We had it in good and
poor economic times. It's
a good problem to have,
but it's time to address


because it is a priority time
for cyclists to use the trail."
Some users have sug-
gested an overpass for
Laurel Road. Without the
facade it would be less
expensive than the one
over U.S. 41 Bypass, but
a steel overpass would
change the character of
area, said Gippert.
"If we ever get to Clark
and Bee Ridge roads, we
will run up against these
signalization issues," he
said.
Weekend delays are less
of a problem because users
are spread out over the
day and go much shorter
distances, often with their
families.
"I have not heard of any
traffic accidents on Laurel
Road or Colonia, but there
were fender-benders on
Sarasota Central Parkway,"
he said.
With just two lanes, traf-
fic goes slower 30 mph
- along Colonia. There is
a yellow warning light, but
no one on the trail stops,
said Gippert.
"Not everyone pushes
the Laurel Road crossing
button; some just check
both directions and if it's
clear they cross, only using
the button control if they

Manager Ed Lavallee,

Gippert. "Our advice is to
stop at every intersection
on the trail and use the
stop buttons, as I person-
ally do even if only one
vehicle is approaching.
Three infrared counters
measuring each movement
have been installed by the
Friends of the Legacy Trail;
however, their accuracy
cannot be guaranteed as
they may duplicate users.
The U.S. 41 Overpass
in Venice has the highest
count, with walkers being


the most-frequent users.
Last year there were an
estimated 200,000 users,
he said. From the peak of
22,000 monthly during
season, it drops off drasti-
cally in April. July, August
and September are hard
for cyclists, who have to
get out early to beat the
heat.
"Some members have
strong feelings to make
changes, but we are just
volunteers and have no
knowledge of control-
ling intersections," said


Gippert, who would defer
any changes to the traffic
engineers.
"At this point the county
commission has not asked
for any direction as there
has been no discussion on
the Laurel Road cross-
ing," said Hauber. "Safety
is a priority and has to be
balanced for whatever we
do for both trail users and
traffic. It is very busy road
and the trail also gets a lot
of traffic."

Geena Zinkand has a room full of ribbons to show for it


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR

A lot of teens love
animals. For Venice High
School senior Geena
Zinkand, it's a two-way
street. Animals horses in
particular love her.
She shares that love
almost every weekend as
she competes in eques-
trian speed events at the
Punta Gorda Horseman's
Association.
"Horses follow her
around," her mother,
Linda LaValley, said. "She
is kind and has an innate
sense with horses."
Geena's trainer, Kath-
erine (Kathy) Castronova,
owner of Bits & Saddles
in Port Charlotte, said she
thinks the horse Geena
presently rides, Scooter, is
in love with her.
"He's a hard horse to ride
and handle, but Geena
does beautifully with him,"
Castronova said of the
8-year-old quarterhorse
she lends out. "He's a
teenager (in people years)
and is arrogant, but Geena
has a good seat and stays
in the saddle."
Since she was very
young and first introduced
to horses, Geena has been
riding steadily about once
a week.
"My first-grade teacher
took me to her barn when I
lived in North Carolina and
let me ride a horse," she
said. "I liked it and have
been doing it ever since."
Early horse-riding days
had her doing English rid-
ing, which included hunter-
jumper competitions and
dressage. But she prefers

ribbons from recent competitions while standing near a 6-foot
trophy holding several Grand Champion (first place) statues and
ribbons at her home.


what she does now: speed
riding. She has been train-
ing with Castronova for six
years, but the teacher said
the student is so accom-
plished now she doesn't
need to learn much more.
Geena has won hun-
dreds of ribbons and
trophies mostly first-
place awards for her
equestrian endeavors.
On the kitchen table,
three first-place trophies re-
flect her recent success, one
for regular barrels (18 sec-
onds), one for Texas barrels
(seven seconds) and one for
pole running (25 seconds).


A large ribbon reflects she
placed fifth overall.
The challenge in regular
barrels is for the rider to
maneuver the horse as
fast as possible around
three barrels arranged in a
triangle. In Texas barrels,
horse and rider weave in
and out between three
barrels forward and back.
With poles, six poles are
lined up straight and the
rider weaves around them
forward and back again as
fast as possible.
A statue towering about
6 feet high graces the
comer of the dining room.

"Geena's going to go off
to college and I'm moving
in with a friend," LaValley
said. "What would we do
with all those ribbons?"
She said they will keep
some of the trophies and
explained that lately Geena
has been accepting cash
for her wins rather than
trophies or ribbons. At the
end of 2011, she took the
$100 four times for Grand
Champion awards and
$75 for a Reserve Cham-
pionship. The money will

blue (Grand Champion)
and red (Reserve Cham-
pion) ribbons that will go
back to PGHA to give to


for college expenses. This
year she's entitled to a $500
PGHA scholarship.
Geena's successes go be-
yond her relationship with
horses. She is a gifted Ad-
vanced Placement student
atVHS who formerly went
to Pine View School. She
has been gathering volun-
teer hours with PGHA, the
nursery at her church and
Venice Public Library for a
Bright Futures scholarship.
She learned April 12 she has
been accepted to the Hon-
ors Program at the Univer-
sity of Central Florida.
Will she keep on riding
when she attends college?
"I don't know. I'll have to
explore the situation," she
said.
LaValley said she can use
her expertise to train chil-
dren or work at a barn.
"It may be that places
there (Orlando) are more
related to rodeos," she said.
LaValley said she hopes
Geena continues riding.
"It's been an excellent
six years," LaValley said. "I
recommend competing for
girls if they have a passion
for horseback riding. You
don't need to own a horse to
pursue this hobby; people
like Kathy make it possible."
Castronova said she will
miss Geena a lot.
"She is one of the nicest
kids I've ever met," Cas-
tronova said. "She's very
respectful and considerate,
like her mother. It's not
easy being a single mom,
and her mother has done
a good job with Geena.
Geena will be a lovely
young woman when she is
done with her education."

'Blackbird' delights with story of gutsy Josephine Baker


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR

Westcoast Black The-
atre Troupe remains true
to its mission of recount-
ing the story of black
history makers through
a vivid, energetic and
soulful performance.
This time, it is the story
of Josephine Baker, aka
Blackbird.
"Blackbird: The Story
of Josephine Baker," is a
musical written by Sher-
man Yellen, a Tony-nom-
inated playwright, and
the late Wally Harper,
an award-winning
composer.
Dhakeria Cunningham
is the perfect match
for the late singer who
began performing in
1919 and was known by
several monikers, such
as "BlackVenus" and
"Creole Goddess,"
according to a biography

Grant to


support


at-risk


youth

FROM RF BINDER
PUBLIC RELATIONS

On April 16, Big Broth-
ers Big Sisters of the Sun
Coast received a $15,000
grant from Staples
Foundation, the private
foundation created by
Staples Inc.
Funding from Staples
Foundation will support
the Decisions to Win
program, which provides
students in danger of
dropping out of high
school with one-to-one
mentoring relationships.
To date, Staples Founda-
tion has awarded $40,000
to Big Brothers Big Sis-
ters of the Sun Coast.
Decisions to Win was
created for high school
students to provide
mentoring support that
helps youth develop self-
awareness, set achiev-
able goals and make
educational, career and
financial plans.
Funding from Staples
Foundation will enable
Big Brothers Big Sisters
of the Sun Coast to serve
hundreds of additional
students through the
program. The grant will
help recruit and train
more mentors, provide
innovative academic
skills and better track
the program's progress
and impact.
"Decisions to Win
empowers high school
students to develop nec-
essary decision-making
skills, self-awareness
and positive attitudes
to become successful
members of the com-
munity," said Joy Mahler,
president and CEO of Big
Brothers Big Sisters of
the Sun Coast. "Support
from Staples Founda-
tion will provide under-
served youth throughout
Sarasota County with the
resources and support


U.S. in the 1920s and
beyond. Baker favored
the welcoming spirit of
Europe and chose to live
and work in Paris, where
she was lauded for her
talents for 50 years, until
her death in 1975.
"Can you believe it, I
hailed a taxi (in Paris)
and it stopped for me?"
Baker says rhetorically,
summing up the positive
treatment she received in
France.
Other characters in the
lively performance carry
multiple roles, including
WBTT Artistic Director
Nate Jacobs, Ariel Blue,
Michael Mendez and
Tsadok Porter. Harry
Bryce is director and
choreographer. Terrance
Lane is music director.
Baker is credited with
helping to bring the
Jazz Age to Europe and
for fighting racism in
the United States. Her


biography page said the
National Association
for the Advancement of
Colored People named
May 20 Josephine
Baker Day to honor her
efforts.
Baker had traveled
back and forth dur-
ing her career, and she
performed in America
with success at Har-
lem's Cotton Club. But
she never received the
acceptance she desired
in the U.S. until very late
in her career. She per-
formed at Carnegie Hall
in 1975, being nervous
about being accepted.
She reportedly received
a standing ovation as she
went onstage and wept
at the touching scene.
Her final appearance
in 1975, when she was
68, was during a pre-
miere at the Bobino
Theater in Paris. Such
celebrities as Princess


Grace of Monaco and
Sophia Loren attended.
Four days later, Baker,
mother of 12 adoptees
from various countries
she called "The Rain-
bow Tribe," to show the
world how well children
of various backgrounds
could get along, died
following a cerebral
hemorrhage.
Jacobs said in a press
release that people may
think they know Baker's
story, "but this play takes
a much deeper look into
the reasons she became
who she was."
"Blackbird" runs
through May 20, Tues-
days through Satur-
days at 8 p.m., with
matinees on Sundays
at 2 p.m. Tickets cost
$28. Go to wbttsrq.org
or call the box office at

Tambourine class connects women with ancient ritual


Jeanne Friend of
Rotonda West travels
extensively and often
sees ancient carvings of
women playing tam-
bourines throughout the
Middle East.
"It planted the idea in
my mind that playing the
instrument is something
I would like to do," she
said. "When I saw a local
class being offered, I
knew I had to come."
Friend was one of
two dozen women from
Charlotte and Sarasota
counties who recently
attended a tambourine
class taught by instructor
Barbara Gail.
Gail teaches in Engle-
wood, Nokomis and
Venice, and also leads
weekly drum circles at
Warm Mineral Springs
Day Spa in North Port.
She also leads "Daugh-
ters of the Ancient Pulse"
- a women's tambourine
circle Fridays in Venice.
Some attend because
they are intrigued with
the idea of the ancient


Instructor Barbara Gail demonstrates how to hold and play a
tambourine. Playing the instrument requires practice and a
learning curve.


women's ritual. Others
come because it's a new
kind of adventure.
Friend said "I need this
for me" as she embarked
on her new adventure
with tambourines.
Rotonda resident
Abbie Banks also attends.
"I like new adventures
of all kinds," she said.
"I also found any class
Barbara offers is fun."


Tambourine circle is
a sacred, centuries-old
women's ritual with roots
dating to pre-Biblical
times, Gail said. Tam-
bourines were played in
ancient China, Egypt,
Greece, India, Israel,
Mesopotamia and Rome.
The local tambourine
circle is a contempo-
rary twist on an ancient
tradition.


SUN PHOTOS BY PATTIE MIHALIK


Abbie Banks, Karen Cairns and Jeanne Friend join in a Priestess Tambourine Circle processional.
Dating back to ancient times, professionals are an important part of the women's ritual.


"They are infused with
rhythm, ritual, sacred
feminine space and sis-
terhood," Gail said.
She starts each class
with a brief history of the
tambourine and its place
in ritual.
"As we invoke the
ancient ones, we know
we are the ancestors of
the future," she said.
Each participant
names her parents,
grandparents and


great-grandparents.
"One of the beauti-
ful things about this is
that it connects us to the
past," said Anne Murphy.
"There is a spiritual ele-
ment to the ritual that I
find appealing."
"I've actually gone into
a meditative trance while
playing," Banks said.
Women taking a
tambourine class are
surprised at first to learn
you don't just pick up the


instrument and shake it.
"The more you learn
about playing the tam-
bourine, the more diffi-
cult it gets," Banks said.
Karen Cairns agreed
as she demonstrated a
jingle roll.
"It's a lot harder than
people think," she said.
"You really have to
concentrate."

School volunteers, business partners honored VENICE SCHOOL AWARD RECIPIENTS


FROM SARASOTA COUNTY
SCHOOL DISTRICT

More than 300 people
gathered at the Ven-
ice Community Center
April 10 to honor the
Sarasota County School
District's outstanding
volunteers and business
partners. ABC 7 news
anchor Scott Dennis
served as emcee for the
annual PALS Partners in
Education recognition
event.
Present were com-
munity mentor program
administrators, school
board members, district
administrators, princi-
pals and staff members
of 34 schools, and mem-
bers of the PALS com-
munity advisory board.
The Education Founda-
tion of Sarasota County
funds the recognition
event and other PALS
initiatives.
School Board Chair
Caroline Zucker thanked
the honorees.
"The partnership
formed by those of you
who are here today and
the students and staff in
our schools means much


more than mentoring,
materials and money,
although all of those are
incredibly important,"
Zucker said.
School volunteers
and business partners
donated about 264,000
hours of time and effort
to the school district
last year. Ron Carr, PALS
Community Advisory
Board president, and
Tanice Knopp, PALS
specialist, presented
White with a ceremonial
check for $5.7 million.
The amount represents
the number of hours
multiplied by $21.79, a
figure calculated by the
Independent Sector of
Washington, D.C., to
reflect the national aver-
age value of an hour of
volunteer time.
Award recipients
included Melody Mish-
kin, a Pine View School
senior who was named
Youth Outstanding
School Volunteer. She
advocates for positive
change on campus and
in the community. As
acting president of the
school's Diversity Coun-
cil, Mishkin works to


conduct early interven-
tion, anti-bias activities
and organizes cultural
heritage appreciation
events. For the past
two years she has trav-
eled to the state capital
with Peacejam, a service
learning model that
unites youth and Nobel
Peace Prize winners to
evoke meaningful change
in the world.
McDonald's Restau-
rant Englewood/Venice
was named Outstand-
ing Corporate Business
Partner. Owners Brenda
and Greg Symons have
partnered with Engle-
wood Elementary School
for more than 20 years
with Adopt-a-Class, Eagle
Run and Spring Fling and
they generate funding
for weekly family read-
ing nights and help raise
donations for the campus
Clothes Closet for needy
students.
The Macrae Family
Foundation was named
the Outstanding Local
Business Partner. Through
the foundation, local
entrepreneur Susan Mac-
rae has actively supported
Venice High School for 10


years, including donat-
ing more than $5,000
to replace stolen school
equipment and upgrade
remaining equipment
and give $11,000 in
scholarships.
Each year PALS awards
scholarships to students.
The Omar Cooper Youth
Service Award is given
to a high school junior
who performs outstand-
ing volunteer service in
the community and who
commits to volunteer-
ing during his or her
senior year with a men-
tor on a specific project.
The student receives a
$2,000 merit award and
the mentor gets a $1,000
stipend.
This year's award went
to Pine View student Kath-
ryn Hiles and her mentor,
the Rev. Rocky Walker
of Old Miakka United
Methodist Church. Hiles
has given 160 hours at the
local Girl Scout head-
quarters working on a
political advocacy project
to raise awareness of the
Girl Scouts' role in politics
and helping adult mentors
develop a Teen Volunteer
Program.

Room LE 2 houses kindergarten and
first-grade students of Ms. Lucy and
Ms. Jo-Anna at Island Village Montes-
sori Charter School in Venice. The
students have always been very active
in raising funds for the American
Cancer Society's Relay for Life a life-
changing event that helps communi-
ties across the globe fight back against
cancer.
One of the students, Justin, lost his
grandfather to cancer about two years
ago. He and his brother, Nick, wanted
to do something to help raise money.
His brother said, "I don't have a lot of
money, but I have a bike you can have.
You can use that to raise money."
Ms. Jo-Anna took the bike to Beach
Bikes and Trikes, near Goodwill on
Venice island, for a tune-up. Tracey
O'Toole donated the tune-up and bike

can make noise by shak-
ing a tambourine, but to
actually play it takes con-
centration and practice.
"It's not an easy instru-
ment to play," Gail said,
demonstrating how
to hold and play the
drum. "The frame drum
procession for women is
a beautiful thing to do,
but there is a learning
curve."


Gail started playing
the West African drum
in 1988, then studied
percussion and rhythm.
She signed up for a week-
long women's frame
drum retreat taught by
Layne Redmond that
shaped her destiny, she
says.
Redmond's work
focuses on the spiritual
and healing aspects of
drumming, according
to online sources. The
hand-held frame drum is
the world's oldest known
drum.


"I saw a picture of
Layne leading a proces-
sion of women and just
that image was so pro-
found," Barbara says.
The processional
aspect of tambourines is
what she says she likes
most.

I GOREN BRIDGE
WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

A AK J 10 6 K9 > 7 2 4 10 6 5 2


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
1a Pass 2n

What do you bid now?


EAST
Pass


A Partner's response has done little
to improve your holding. For the
moment, you have to content
yourself with a simple two spades
and see what develops.

Q 2 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

610 7A9850 KJ76? Q73

Partner opens the bidding with one
heart. What do you respond?

A That depends on your methods. If
you play limit raises, this hand
qualifies as a sound jump to three
hearts. If you play weak jump raises
and forcing notrump responses, by all
means use that here.

Q 3 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

SA10 7 K J 9 5 3 0 8 5 4 106

Partner opens the bidding with one
heart. What do you respond?

A Don't let that fifth heart tempt
you into doing something rash. You
have a sound raise to two hearts and
no good reason to stretch it. Bid it.

Q 4 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

SQ 8 7 4 K 9 3 K 10 6 2 93

Partner opens the bidding with one
no trump. What do you respond?


A You have just enough to invite
game 8 HCP with good
intermediates. However, your ruffing
value in clubs means that spades
could be the right spot if partner has
four-card support, so start with a
Stayman two clubs.

Q 5 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

SA Q 10 6 5 10 9 5 3 0 K J 7 6

Partner opens the bidding with one
no trump. What do you respond?

A You want to be in game in a major
should you have a combined eight
cards or more in either. Find out by
starting with a Stayman inquiry.
Should partner deny four cards in
either major, jump to three spades to
offer a choice of game in spades,
should he have three-card support, or
three no trump.

Q 6 Both vulnerable you hold:

6 10 7 6 2 Q 10 8 7 6 3 0 9 5 8

Partner opens the bidding with two
no trump. What do you respond?

A This is not the hand for Stayman.
Even if partner has four spades, your
hand might be useless to him if he is
forced to ruff before he can establish
your hearts. However, we do want to
commit to game in hearts by
whatever your methods, and if
nothing covers this distribution,
simply get to four hearts by a transfer
bid or, if none is available, by the
most direct means.

Girls Inc. to partner with NASA


STAFF REPORT

Girls Incorporated of Sara-
sota County has been awarded
a grant for the implementation
of NASAs Summer of Innova-
tion program.
The initiative's goal is to use
its out-of-this-world missions
and technology programs to


boost summer learning, par-
ticularly for under-represented
students across the nation.
NASA's Summer of Inno-
vation supports President
Obama's Educate to Innovate
campaign for excellence in sci-
ence, technology, engineering
and mathematics, or STEM,
education.


The SOI program will work
with thousands of middle
school teachers and students
during multi-week programs in
the summer of 2012 to engage
students in stimulating math
and science-based education
programs. NASAs goal is to
increase the number of future
scientists, mathematicians and


engineers, with an emphasis
on broadening participa-
tion of low-income, minority
students.
"We are thrilled to deliver
Summer of Innovation pro-
grams to our girls," said Marisa
Monroe, Girls Inc. director of
programming.
"Science, math and


technology are areas that
we believe our girls critically
need, and the opportunity to
partner with NASA places our
girls at a distinct advantage for
learning."
For more information about
Girls Inc., contact Kay Mathers
at 366-6646, ext. 207 or Kay@

Fantastic

Thursday I was tromping around Fantasyland in hard hat,
safety glasses and vest for a sneak peek at what's coming
to the happiest place in the Magic Kingdom at the
Walt Disney World Resort.
It has been a year since my last visit to what must be
the largest WDW park improvement in history (Short of
adding an entire new park, that is.)
It definitely is the largest project I have seen in the
Magic Kingdom, which I have faithfully visited nearly
every year since 1973. I know I wasn't there at the
beginning but trust me I have made up for lost time
in the ensuing years.
Among the additions to Fantasyland are Belle's Cottage
which promises a new style adventure, a new Storybook
Circus area housing Dumbo the Flying Elephant spinning
clockwise.
Not only is this a first but since most ice skaters
spin and jump to the left, I think that most people will likely notice
a different feel to this ride, even if they do not ice skate or spin.
Dumbo's ride had a soft opening March 12 so you can see for
yourself right now.
Most of the added attractions will be open by next year and
completion of the entire addition is planned for
2014 according to my friends at Disney.
While you wait, check out one of the 512 new guest rooms at
Disney's Port Orleans Resort-Riverside.
For reservations, call 407-W-DISNEY.
It is a very good thing that Uncle Walt (Walter Elias Disney)
purchased all that acreage back in the 1960s.

Visit Civil War site at Ellenton


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Driving along U.S. 301 in Ellenton I came
upon an antebellum mansion with what
appeared to be a Civil War encampment.
Men were in wool uniforms such as those once
worn by Confederate troops in the infamous War
Between the States. Women wore long dresses
and were a part of the scene that was a living
history tableau.
The Civil War reenactment at the Gamble
Mansion was a powerful lure. I drove up the
lengthy driveway to learn more, and I continue to
visit this important site at least once a year. That
first visit must have been 10 years ago.
Six years in the building, the mansion was the
main structure on Major Robert Gamble's sugar
plantation which covered nearly 3,500 acres
along the Manatee River. Gamble began the
development of his plantation in 1843, more than
20 years before the earliest settlers to what is
today known as Venice. By 1856, he was in debt
and forced to sell the property, which is said to
have later provided refuge to Judah P. Benjamin,
the Confederate States of America's secretary
of state at the end of the Civil War. Benjamin


managed to flee to England while many of his
fellow Confederate States cabinet members were
arrested.
According to the Florida State Park Service
website, the mansion and 16 acres were pur-
chased by the United Daughters of the Confed-
eracy in 1925 and given to the state in 1926.
Additional plantation land was acquired by the
state in 2002. It is said to be the only surviving
plantation house in Florida.
Few if any of the original furnishings
remain in the house, which is currently
undergoing restoration work that began in
2011 with the refurnishing of the parlor
and dining rooms to the way they likely
were in the 1850s.Two-story columns and the
home's walls were built of a substitute for brick
known as Tabby. The two-feet thick walls were
ahead of their time for energy efficiency.The
walls kept out both heat and cold and also could
withstand severe tropical storms. Those strong walls
likely were a deterrent to the home's destruction by
George Patten who built a new two-story Victorian
house on the property in 1872 rather than destroy-
ing or renovating the Gamble Mansion.
Described as being of Doric Revivalist


HI-'H .I I-'H-'-.I. ILI LL


Gamble Mansion is located at 3708 Patten Ave., U.S. 301 E., Ellenton.


Vernacular, the house was added to the National
Register of Historic Places on Aug. 12, 1970.
Also on the property is a 40,000-gallon cistern
and the remains of the old sugar mill's equipment
plus an herb garden maintained by local volun-
teers. The mill house did not survive the Civil War
and its brick walls were removed long ago, park
rangers said.

Spider-Man ride reopens at Universal Orlando


BY MITCH STACY
ASSOCIATED PRESS
As Universal Orlando theme park opens
a new and technologically eye-popping
version of its iconic 3-D Spider-Man ride,
creator Stan Lee says its sort of a fluke that the cos-
tumed web-slinger ever came into existence at all.
Lee was a writer and editor at Marvel Comics
in the early 1960s when he went to his publisher
with a new idea: A superhero with the abilities
of a flying insect that could crawl on walls and
flit from place to place. Oh, and the character's
alter-ego, Peter Parker, would be a shy, orphaned
teenager with all sorts of adolescent problems
and anxieties.
"My publisher said to me, 'Stan, that is the
worst idea I have ever heard,'" the 89-year-old
Lee recalled in a telephone interview from his
Los Angeles home this week. "First of all, people
hate spiders so you can't call a hero Spider-Man.
Secondly, a hero can't be a teenager. Teenagers
are only sidekicks. And three, superheroes don't
have problems they're superheroes!"
Lee, who had already dreamed up the Fan-


tastic Four, the Hulk and other popular Marvel
beings, worked up a Spider-Man story with artist
Steve Ditko "just to get it out of my system," he
says and put the new character on the cover of
the last-ever issue of a 12-cent magazine called
"Amazing Fantasy."
"It sold like crazy," Lee says of the August 1962
comic. Spider-Man was well on his way to becom-
ing the flagship of the Marvel Comics universe,
star of TV shows, major motion pictures and more
lately, a famously elaborate Broadway musical.
Spidey's general appearance has changed little
through the years, although Peter Parker has
been allowed to grow up into a young man.
That brings us to the updated version of the
Universal 3-D park ride, The Amazing Adventures
of Spider-Man. It quickly gained popularity among
theme park fans after debuting in 1999 but has only
had minor tweaks since. Lately it had slipped into
the also-ran category of Universal rides with the
2010 opening of the immensely popular Harry Potter
attraction in another corner of Islands of Adventure.
The ride, which combines motion vehicles,
a towering screen and special effects, was

reanimated in digital high-definition 3-D and got
updated sets, sound system, lighting and music.
Universal says the clearer, brighter animation
allowed the addition of loads of new details and
high-tech gimmicks to the ride, in which the
wise-cracking web-slinger battles villains Doctor
Octopus, Scream, Electro, Hydro-Man and the
Hobgoblin.
"We saw an opportunity to make it ready for
a whole new generation of fans, and this was
a perfect time to do so," said Mark Woodbury,
president for Universal Creative, the park's
design and development group. "The technology
was available to us, (and) we saw the opportunity
to create something really unique more immer-
sive, more detailed, more visual."
He's not kidding. It's four minutes of chaotic
hurtling around a much more realistic animated
version of NewYork City than before, with all
sorts of stuff flying at the rider's car and the
villains getting close enough to make you flinch
repeatedly. The digital reanimation adds stunning
depth and clarity, the quality of which is a cut
above the 3-D seen in the theaters these days.
There's so much going on in every scene that
multiple rides will be necessary to catch all the
new details. The sound is noticeably better, too.
As Lee has done in some of the movies based
on his characters, he steps into the ride three

Broadway Palm scores a hit with 'Legally Blonde'


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Broadway Palm scores a hit with "Legally
Blonde" featuring Maris Fernandes as
Elle Wood, a sorority girl from Malibu who
follows her boyfriend Warner Huntington, Ill., to
Harvard Law School.
In Cambridge, the blonde with a penchant
for pink and a Chihuahua named Bruiser (Roxy
Vogt), learns as much about herself as about
the law before graduating as class valedictorian
and enlightening several classmates whose egos
were larger than their mortar boards.
That Fernandes is nearly a double for Reese
Witherspoon who portrayed Elle Wood in the film
on which this musical is based adds much to the
show. But so does the Greek chorus of her Delta
Nu sorority sisters and the fast-paced jumprope
number, 'Whipped Into Shape," featuring Brooke
Wyndham (Victoria Fairclough), Professor Cal-
lahan (Jesse Berger) and the company.
Hairdresser Paulette Bonafonte (Morgan
Springer) and Kyle the UPS guy (Drew Stark)
added more comic bits and even performed


an Irish jig.
This cast is good.This production is fun and
entertaining. Couple that with the real hot fudge
sauce on the dinner theater's dessert table and
you have several reasons to head to Fort Myers.
Amy Marie McCleary is the show's chore-
ographer and M. Seth Reines is the director.
Together they shaped a winner that was further
enhanced by the convertible set designed by
Christine Peters and colorful costumes, includ-
ing the world's glitziest graduation robe, by
Mary Atkinson.
Several actors carried multiple roles with ease.
Even the on-stage costume changes worked like
magic. Tuesday night's audience ranged in age
from about 10 to at least 87 years of age. They
all applauded at the right times, which was easy
because the show is funny and entertaining.
Performances continue through May 13.Tick-
ets are $27-$51 per person.

com or call 239-278-4422.
Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre is located at
1380 Colonial Blvd., Fort Myers.

Lots of free shark-tastic fun at Ultimate Shark Challenge


BY JOSH OLIVE
WATERLINE PUBLISHER
Few people are ambivalent about sharks.
For many, they represent the embodiment
of fear after all, people are occasionally
killed by sharks, and in their watery world we
are virtually defenseless against them. To oth-
ers, sharks are the object of endless fascina-
tion, predators supremely dominant in their
realm, so well adapted they have remained
virtually unchanged for millions of years,
mysterious and powerful creatures that seem
almost otherworldly.
Whether you find them magnetic or repulsive,
there's no denying that sharks are interesting.
That's why the Guy Harvey Ultimate Shark Chal-
lenge, coming to Punta Gorda's Laishley Crab
House Friday-Sunday, will feature many other
shark-themed attractions to go along with their
conservation-minded shark tournament. Although
there will be no dead sharks hauled back to the
docks for spectators to ogle, no one will lack for
free entertainment.
"Of course, we'll have the world's largest
collection of Jaws film props returning this year,"
says tournament co-director Sean Paxton. "Sat-
urday and Sunday will feature live music by Marty
Moss. There will also be several entertaining and
educational exhibits, including the Mote Mobile
Aquarium, the kids shark tooth and fossil hunt,
free fishing seminars, and the Ultimate Shark
Challenge Learning Experience"'
"People will also be able to take pictures with
the Land Shark Lager car,' adds his brother and
fellow co-founder Brooks, "or inside a real shark
cage with Bruce (the shark) from the movie
Jaws, and a few other surprises we've got up our
sleeve. On Saturday night, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.,
the festival will rock and roll into the night with a

free street party and concert by Tayzer'"
The film Jaws has been shaping attitudes to-
ward sharks since its release in 1975. The movie,
based on the novel by Peter Benchley, painted
sharks in a strong negative light the villain is
an almost supernatural great white which mind-
lessly lusts for human flesh. But it also served to
raise awareness of sharks, and what started as
fear became curiosity in many For some of those
who were interested enough to seek out the truth
behind the silver-screen monster, sharks became
a lifelong fascination. And some of those people
have gone on to try to change the negative shark
stereotype that many still think is true.
This connection explains why one of the big

Smokehou

BY BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Smokehouse in Punta Gorda is one of
those best-kept-secrets all the locals
know about. When newbies and visitors
try it, Smokehouse becomes their breakfast
place too.
"Sometimes, in season, the line is out the door',
said owner Pam Adelson.'When the snowbirds go
back north, our year-round locals come back in, so
we have two different groups of regulars"
Most of them come for the biscuits and gravy
- homemade white gravy with big chunks of
homemade sausage over fluffy biscuits made
from scratch every day Some switch out the
biscuits for cottage fries that are round, crinkle-
cut, crispy on the outside but puffy and tender.
Some folks ask for them extra crispy, almost like
a potato chip, said Adelson, and Smokehouse is
happy to oblige.
Smokehouse omelets are another customer
favorite, because they're made in an omelet pan
and flipped over, so they're thick and fluffy.
Chef Michael AI-Khatib sends out plates
heaped high with the restaurant's signature
delicacies. "Most people can't finish their food,"
acknowledged Adelson's daughter, Sam Ball,
who has waited tables at Smokehouse for three
years.Younger daughter Danielle works there on
weekends.
Nearly all the staff has been with Smokehouse
for years, said Adelson. It's a fun place to work


.-- ,; is

Chef Michael AI-Khitib serves up heaping plates
of breakfast foods, which are served through
lunchtime.

and to eat. The long, shiny picnic tables encour-
age dining with strangers and getting to know
your neighbors. In fact, in season, it's the only
option if you want a seat.
"Some people hesitate at first, but once they
start talking they find out the people at their table are
from their state, or they have other things in com-
mon, and they end up enjoying it," said Adelson.
The restaurant also serves lunch during the
week, although they've moved away from the
smokehouse meats that gave them their name
years ago. Smokehouse has been open since
1980, though the building itself is much older.
Adelson signed on as a waitress in 1991, and
bought out the owner in 1995.

Vintage cars 'Cruizin' on West Dearborn Street in Olde Englewood


BY CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Cruizin' on Dearborn is not a car show. It's
a "Cruizin."There is a difference according
to promoter and DJ Tom Brooks.
From 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. the first Saturday of the
month as many as 200 vintage car and truck
owners find space to park on W. Dearborn Street.
Vintage car owners and area visitors gather
mainly to meet and mingle with old and new
friends who have similar interests: cars.
Most stop by Tom Travels Tunes, a trailer
parked next to Cafe de La Bay. The event is free,
and Brooks supplies "Happy Days" music along
the Dearborn Street route. Loud speakers have


been installed on street corners so all can enjoy
'50s tunes to brighten their "cruizin" experi-
ence. Brooks also sells 50/50 raffle tickets and
announces hourly door prizes that may include
car cleaning supplies and gift cards donated by
Dearborn Street businesses.
Most wives, according to Lorraine Ryerson,
think of Cruizin as a time for couples to have
fun together while displaying their well-loved
vintage cars or trucks. Lorraine and her hus-
band, Rich, are are regulars who, along with
their friend Joe Decker, are passionate about
collecting cars. Rich and Joe are childhood
buddies from Goshen, N.Y. and love "to show
off the cars that they have so painstakingly


restored." Joe drives his'71 Nova and Rich drives
his '64 Chevy "to shows and Cruizins, but not in
the rain,' said Rich.
Special cars often have special names, and
"Betsy" is the most unique vehicle in Southwest
Florida according to owners Ron and Julie
Siegrist. Their 1952 Oldsmobile '98 convertible
is one of only 12 remaining in the world, and the
last to belong to an original owner.
In Betsy's trunk, Ron and Julie display a
picture of themselves on their honeymoon
standing by their new Oldmobile 1998 convert-
ible. They drove their first car for 14 years
before retiring her to the garage where their
two young daughters often played Barbie dolls.


The girls named the car "Betsy." When, after
another 14 years, Ron and Julie decided to
restore their car to its original glory, the name
Betsy "stuck."
Twenty-nine West Dearborn Street shops and
restaurants support Cruizin and that pays off,
according to Olde Englewood Village Association
President, Elaine Miller.
OEVA sponsors several "Saturday Night Live"
events on Dearborn Street and all offer visitors
and area residents an opportunity to discover some
of Englewood's special treasures and artwork.
To learn more about Cruizin' on Dearborn and
Saturday Night Live, call 941-473-2300 or visit
www.OldeEnglewood.com.


BY CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
t's no surprise to learn that mothers want
what is best for their children. But do mothers
always know best? Tennessee Williams, in
his famous play "The Glass Menagerie," has
created life-like portraits of a mother, her son, her
daughter, and what is often called in the South,
a "suitor."
Lemon Bay Playhouse describes the play as
"Amanda Wingfield is a faded, tragic remnant
of Southern gentility who lives in poverty in a
dingy St. Louis apartment with her son, Tom,
and her daughter, Laura. Amanda strives to give
meaning and direction to her life and the lives of
her children, though her methods are ineffective
and irritating.Tom is driven nearly to distraction
by his mother's nagging and seeks escape in
alcohol and the world of the movies. Laura, who
is crippled, lives in her illusions also and is driven
more and more into herself until the gentleman
caller arrives."
Director Bupp, a professional actor and stage
director for over 55 years, has selected four
seasoned and professional actors. "Every time a
theatre director makes a casting decision he is
assuming a risk,' he explained. "However, in the
case of this production, the risk was minimal."
Rita Corn, who plays Wingfield, a middle-aged
Southern lady and single mother, has acted with
and been directed by Bupp in several plays. She
is currently the artistic manager at The Lemon
Bay Playhouse. Playing the lead role in "Driving
Miss Daisy" in Syracuse, N.Y, is one of Corn's
most memorable acting experiences. She looks


forward to the challenge of portraying the over-
bearing Amanda Wingfield.
"Although the character is unlikable and com-
plicated, she can be funny, and one cannot help
but feel sympathy for her," Corn believes.
The character of Tom Wingfield closely
resembles the playwright, Williams, whose real
name was Thomas. Wil Horton, as the frustrated,
aspiring poet Tom Winfield, narrates the story
from a separate area to the side of the main
stage. Horton performed in high school plays and
U.S. Army shows. He enrolled in acting school
before becoming a clinical psychologist. Horton
is passionate about his hobby of acting and
directing plays in Port Charlotte, Sarasota and
Englewood. Last season he shared the stage
with Bupp in "See Rock City" at the Lemon Bay
Playhouse.
Kim Fisackerly, as the timid Laura Wingfield,
portrays a character that closely resembles
the Playwright's sister, Rose, who was emo-
tionally unstable. Fisackerly has acted in plays
for over 16 years. Last year she shared the
stage with Bupp in the two-actor production of
"Trying" at the Lemon Bay Playhouse. Fisack-
erly sees the character of Laura as having a
"minor defect" that causes her to "self adapt"
by creating her own world, a collection of glass
figurines.
Bill Fisackerly is the husband of Kim and the
pastor at Gulf Cove United Methodist Church in
Port Charlotte. He is a veteran performer who is
impressed with the quality of plays presented at
the Lemon Bay Playhouse. In "Glass Menagerie"
Bill portrays "the gentleman caller" Jim O'Connor,

an old high school acquaintance of Tom and
Laura.
Although "The Glass Menagerie" includes a
few lighter moments, it is mainly a family drama,
according to Bupp.
"The Glass Menagerie," will be presented today
through May 22 at the Lemon Bay Playhouse,


96 W. Dearborn St. in Olde Englewood Village.

Eric Le Glas: Le Petit Bistrot


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
When you walk in the door of La Petit
Bistrot, the French music playing in the
background and the dark wood and
Bordeaux-colored d6cor make you feel like you're
in a caf6 on a small sidestreet of a Paris ar-
rondissement not on Tampa Avenue in Venice.
That's exactly the atmosphere owner/chef Eric
Le Glas was trying to achieve when he bought
and renovated the space the restaurant occupies
last March. "The look is that of a typical Parisian
bistrot,' said Le Glas. "People who have been to
Paris say it reminds them of being there."
Le Glas, who is from the Brittany region of
France and just moved here a little over a year
ago, has succeeded in not only creating the
perception of being in France, he has created the
reality of dining in France. His authentic traditional
French dishes are the kind you would normally
have to travel 4,600 miles to find.
'When we opened, we started to create a
local clientele,' said Le Glas, "and during the
high season, people were happy to see this kind
of restaurant here." Serving breakfast, lunch
and dinner, Le Glas has compiled a menu full
of Gallic favorites. "We have a bistrot salad, of
course-every bistro in Paris has a bistrot salad,"
Le Glas said. "The French onion soup is that
of my mother, and we have a large selection of
buckwheat crepes. In Brittany, we've been making
buckwheat crepes for 3,000 years."


The best part is you can get your traditional
crepes or white ones filled with a myriad of
delicious ingredients savory for entrees and
sweet for desserts. Le Glas said that a couple
of the most popular ones are the Canadian,
which is filled with smoked salmon, artichoke
and sour cream and the Mexican, with chicken,
salsa sauce, mozzarella, onions, olives and sour
cream.
Dessert crepes include such favorites as
Suzette and Nutella, but also some not as familiar
entries such as the Jamaica (banana, cinnamon,
flamb6 with rum) and the Creole (coconut, choco-
late sauce and whipped cream.)
Monday through Friday, you also have the
option of a Prix Fixe menu choose one starter
and one entr6e and a side for $23.90. Some of
the most praised dinner items are featured in this
section of the menu. "The Marco Polo with pork
medallions in cognac sauce is very popular," said
Le Glas. "People also love the beef bourguignon."
Le Glas added that he orders nothing from
food distributors. Everything he serves is made
fresh, right there in his bistrot. "People come here
and buy my bread directly, because we have
fresh baguettes and croissants,' he said. We do
our own pat6 and everything else on the spot and
fresh"
Coming up at the start of the summer, Le Glas
plans to begin wine tasting at the restaurant. "In
addition to a nice menu, we'll do a special menu
for those nights,' he said. "They will be able to

What are long-term effects

of heartburn medicines?


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
Will you please comment
on the effects of long-
term Prevacid for GERD?
A friend has had this for
10 years and has taken
Prevacid for many years. I
went on the Internet and
found this statement about
Prevacid: "This product
should never be taken for
more than 14 days and not
longer than four months.
Long-term use could result
in pre-cancerous nodules
in the esophagus, stomach
and colon." My friend is
now receiving chemo-
therapy and radiation for
cancer of the esophagus
and stomach.
I have never seen
mention of this in your
column. Anon.
ANSWER: GERD -
gastroesophageal reflux
disease, heartburn is
one of humankind's most
common disorders. It's
the spurting upward
of stomach acid and
digestive juices into the
esophagus, the swallow-
ing tube. Prevacid be-
longs to a class of medi-
cines called proton pump
inhibitors. It effectively
stops the production of
stomach acid, and for
most it quickly relieves
the pain of heartburn.
The other PPI drugs
are: Dexilant, Nexium,
Prilosec, Protonix and
Aciphex.
If it's possible, limiting
the time during which
PPIs are used is desirable.
However, heartburn is a
chronic condition, and
chronic administration
of drugs is essential for
containing it. Doctors,
therefore, have latitude in
the length of treatment.
Prolonged used of PPIs
encourage the growth of a
digestive tract bacterium
called C. difficile. It can
give rise to diarrhea and
is sometimes difficult to
uproot.
Prolonged use has
been associated with an
increased risk for break-
ing bones, especially
the hip bone. However,
reliable data on this issue
are conflicting. The Food
and Drug Administra-
tion has not required that
any warning about bone
breaks be issued.
The threat of cancers
of the digestive tract was
once believed to be pos-
sible. Further research
has not substantiated this
threat.
People ought to get off
PPIs from time to time to
see if they truly need long-
term treatment. They can
use other medicines, like
Maalox, Tums or Rolaids.

aoon

late acid production is
another worthwhile treat-
ment. Those foods include
chocolate, peppermint,
spicy food, citrus fruit,
tomatoes, alcohol and caf-
feine. Elevating the head
of the bed with 6-inch
blocks under the bedposts
is helpful.
The booklet on heart-
burn explains this com-
mon disorder. Readers

DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I've been told that raw
milk and bone broth is a
good treatment for osteo-
porosis. Will you com-
ment on this? P.
ANSWER: Bone broth,
made by cooking bones in
boiling water, is a source of
calcium. It's a reasonable
way to meet one's calcium
requirement. I can't find
a reference that gives the
exact calcium content. It
depends on how many
bones are used. Raw milk is
another source of calcium.
"Raw" means not pasteur-
ized. Since milk has been
pasteurized, the number of
infections that came from
drinking unpasteurized
milk has plummeted. I can't
endorse using raw milk.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I am 79 and dread the
annual Pap test. Is it re-
ally necessary for me to
continue it? D.M.
ANSWER: If a woman
is 65 or older and has had
three normal consecutive
Pap smears, she can stop
having the test.
Talk to your doctor
about this. The doctor
might have reasons for
continuing the test that
aren't known by you or me.
Dr Donohue regrets that
he is unable to answer in-
dividual letters, but he will
incorporate them in his
column whenever possible.

Hold the pasta


Dear Heloise: I read
your hint about adding
rice, noodles or macaroni
to "stretch" soup to make
it more of a meal, and I
had to pass along my sug-
gestion. Cook the rice or
pasta separately, then add
it to the soup at serving
time. This accomplishes
several things. First, if
you cook the rice or pasta
along with the soup, it
absorbs the liquid. You
can keep adding water to
the soup, but it will just
get thicker and thicker.
Keeping the rice or
pasta separate allows you
to control the thickness
and flavor of the soup.
Also, if you have little
ones, adding cooled or
cold pasta or rice will
cool the soup quickly to
a manageable tempera-
ture. Love your column!
- Chris in Monmouth,
Maine
Good hints, Chris, and
you're right this is a
good way to control the
amount of "soup," too.
Soup can be a delicious,
quick dinner. Add salad
and some bread, and your
meal is complete. Want
to try some of my favor-
ite soup recipes? All you
need to do is send $5 and
a long, self-addressed,
stamped (65 cents) enve-
lope to: Heloise/Soup, P.O.
Box 795001, San Antonio,
TX 78279-5001. Make a
large batch of soup and
either share with family
who live nearby or with
neighbors, or freeze to
enjoy another night.

BABY BLUES By Rick Kirkman and Jerry Scott


Hints from Heloise

Perfect pineapple
Dear Readers: Is a
"baby" pineapple really
a baby (as in a pineapple
that has been picked
while small)? No! It is
grown and picked as it
is meant to be, which
is about 4.5 inches
high (not counting the
leaves). Produced mainly
in South Africa, these
Queen Victoria pineap-
ples are known for their
sweet and tart quality
and bold flavor.
What makes these
pineapples unique? The
entire pineapple flesh
is edible, including the
core. So, next time you
want some pineapple,
give this variety a taste!
- Heloise

Pepper reminder
Dear Heloise: Some-
times I would forget if I
had salted or seasoned
something I was cook-
ing. Now I always salt/
season first before I add
the pepper. If I see pep-
per in my food, then I
know it's been salted/
seasoned already.

DEAR ABBY: On a recent
airline flight, a tall man
who sat behind me had
his left leg out in the aisle
during most of the trip. He
was wearing shorts, and
you could see his large tat-
too of a naked woman on
his thigh. The drawing was
very explicit, and there was
no way to avoid seeing it
because passengers had to
cross over his leg to reach
the bathroom.
How do you explain this
kind of "art" to children?
Would the airline have the
right to ask him to cover
the tattoo if it was objec-
tionable? OFFENDED
TRAVELER FROM NEW
YORK
DEAR OFFENDED:
Because body art could
be classified as freedom
of expression, I'm not
sure they do. However,
someone's leg protruding
into the aisle might be
considered a safety issue
because it could cause a
trip and fall. It would also
impede food and bever-
age carts traveling up and
down the aisle. Because
you were offended, I hope
you averted your gaze
if you needed to make
more than one trip to the
lavatory, and if there were
children in tow, that you
didn't call their attention
to the "picture."
DEAR ABBY: I had an
urgent piece of mail to get
to the post office. My sister
called the postmistress,
who agreed to stay open
for her to deliver it. In the
meantime, I found two
other pieces of mail that
required checks, quickly
wrote them out and gave
the three envelopes to my
sister, who rushed them to
the post office.
Upon her return, she
showed me her vehicle,
which had a deep gash
running along one side
because she had backed
down the driveway too
quickly, not paying at-
tention, and had scraped
the car against the stone
post. She thinks I should
pay half the cost of repair
because "I was involved."
I think it was her care-
lessness, and therefore, I
should not have to pay. I'm
not angry, just confused by


Dear Abby

her reasoning because the
same thing happened to
me when I ran an errand
for her, but I paid on my
own for my carelessness.
What do you think? -
THINKS DIFFERENTLY IN
TENNESSEE
DEAR THINKS DIF-
FERENTLY: I think you
should remind your sister
that when the same thing
happened to you while
running an errand for her,
you assumed the responsi-
bility for paying for it. For
her to say that you were
"involved" is stretching the
truth. She's trying to guilt
you into paying. Stand
your ground.
DEAR ABBY: I'm a
20-year old female junior
in college. I am intelligent,
attractive and friendly, and
I want to remain a virgin
until I'm married. This is
not because of religious
reasons. I have had a few
relationships I thought
were serious, but I ended
up getting dumped for a
"looser" girl each time,
which really hurts.
My family and friends
don't understand that wait-
ing until marriage is part
of who I am. Ironically, I
was raised to think this was
proper, but once I reached
a certain age, everyone
seemed to change their
minds.
I'm not looking to get
married for at least five
years, which means a
long wait for anyone who
wants to date me. Am I
going to be alone forever
just because I won't jump
into bed with a guy before
we're married? PRIN-
CIPLED IN ANN ARBOR,
MICH.
DEAR PRINCIPLED: Not
quite forever. I admire you
for adhering to your values
and so will the man who
marries you.


"Son of man, these men have set up their idols in
their heart, and put the stumbling block of their iniq-
uity before theirface: should I be inquired of at all by
them?" Ezekiel 14:3.
Idols in our hearts can hinder our walk with God.
Repent and forsake these idols and follow the Lord
with all your heart.

I HOROSCOPE I
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Avoid preamble. Get
right to the point, and tell people what you want
from them. Chances are they will be grateful for
your directness, and they'll think more of you
because you had the guts to operate in this manner.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Politicians aren't the
only ones with platforms. You have a platform, too,
though maybe you haven't given the idea much
thought. Now is the time to do so.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21).You know what you
need, but you may be uncharacteristically timid
can


about communicating it. Inform others of your
intentions, instead of asking permission.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). When you owe
someone an apology, you give it. Apologizing for
unintentional minor errors that don't hurt anyone
will erode the confidence others have in you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Someone may have a higher
position than you, but it doesn't make that person
better than you. You treat everyone equally, and you
refuse to cower to those who do not.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It will take a greater than
normal effort to be present to certain situations.


Perhaps the circumstance is tedious, too challeng-
ing, orjust plain boring. Still, when you drift off
topic, it will be important to come back to it.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). A teacher will help you,
though it isn't necessarily the aim you are going for.
Anything that helps you grow into the person you
wantto be will also expand yourspirit.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).There's a pressure build-
ing around an upcoming event.You will be giving a
performance of some kind. Perhaps this is informal
in nature, but it's still a performance. Imagine
yourself executing this perfectly.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Even though you
know that love is the opposite of fear, you don't
go around hugging sharks. Great whites are best
admired from a great distance.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.19).The pressure is on.
Sojust remember who you are. You have success-
fully completed jobs like this several times in the
past. You can and will do it again.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).This afternoon brings
a shift into a more creative headspace. You'll bypass
your analytical mind and tap into a wellspring of
creative energy.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).You are conscientious
about what you do, and you'll feel inclined to work
hard.Those with similar responsibilities may rely too
heavily on you to pick up the slack.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 2).The next six weeks
are a learning process. Stay the course this year,
no matter what temptations, distractions and
challenges arise and you'll succeed. Whatyou need
to know is revealed in June. Solutions to domestic
issues make life more enjoyable in July. Capricorn
and Aries adore you.Your lucky numbers are: 5,13,
49,38 and 16.

Opening lead: Ten of )

At bridge, being a control freak has
only pleasant connotations. Many
deals hinge on control of the trump
suit, or protecting stoppers in a side
suit.
North had a difficult rebid to make
once South responded to the forcing
cue-bid with a spade rebid. North
decided that the prime cards in the
minors and the semi-solid diamonds
compensated for the lack of a third
spade, and jumped to game in the
suit. That was an accurate assessment
since five diamonds can be defeated
with a trump lead.


West led the ten of hearts. East
overtook with the jack and continued
with a second heart, declarer ruffing.
South crossed to the table with a
diamond and led a spade to the jack,
losing to the queen. West continued
hearts and, when South ruffed,
control of the hand passed to the
defense. There was now no way to
salvage the contract.
Once South ruffed a heart at trick
two, there were 10 tricks available
via the two top trumps, five
diamonds and two clubs. Declarer
could afford to lose two tricks to ruffs
and still make the hand, since each
time a defender ruffed an extra trump
trick would develop for declarer. All
this line needed was for trumps to be
no worse than 4-2.
After ruffing the heart at trick two,
declarer should cash the ace and king
of trumps and, once both defenders
have followed, abandon the suit and
start running diamonds. West can ruff
the third diamond, but no return
harms declarer. Suppose West plays
another heart. Declarer ruffs, crosses
to dummy with a club to the king, and
continues to play diamonds,
discarding clubs from hand. One
more trump trick is all the defenders
can get.
