New Challenger site urged .m 1


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Back and forth, and back again.
Citing neighborhood opposition
and a viable alternate site, the city
is now pressing Venice Challenger
Baseball to accept its gift of land
in the middle ofWellfield Park for
three ball fields for the disabled.
This, after inviting the organiza-
tion to redraft plans farther away
from neighbors within a nature
trail area.
It's a plan already rejected by
Challenger's leaders, but one the
city hopes they will reconsider


with some modifications.
In a letter to Venice City Council,
City Manager Ed Lavallee said
Challenger's revision to its original
plan taking a chunk of undevel-
oped land within Pinebrook Park,
albeit farther away from the Bridle
Oaks neighborhood showed
"some movement," but "not the
extent envisioned."
"The staff's assessment of the
amended plan is that it does not
appreciably negate some of the
issues raises by opponents to the
original plan, including proximity
to the neighborhood and general
disturbance of the passive park,"


Lavallee wrote.
Of concern was a new drawing
showing only one of two lime pits
would be removed. Earlier discus-
sions centered around Challenger
removing all of the lime at its own
expense.
"At this point, assuming an
agreement can be reached for
reuse of the maintenance garage,
the alternate site is considered
to be the preferred site by staff,"
Lavallee wrote.
Challenger representatives said
the alternate site floods on occasion,

June


start for



Plaza



Venezia

By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINESS COLUMNIST

Building plans for permits
were being submitted this
week for the new Plaza Venezia
shopping center, to be con-
structed at the Laurel Road/
Pinebrook Road intersection.
The projected start date
is June 26, with projected
completion in March 2013,
said Michael A Collard, presi-
dent of Collard Properties of
Winter Park, developer of this
first major shopping center for
the residents of North Venice.
"We will accelerate construc-
tion for Publix, who want to
open this store as soon as pos-
sible in order to start replacing
their existing Nokomis Village
Plaza store," he said.
The 30-acre site at the
southwest corner of Laurel
and Pinebrook Roads has a
total building space of 69,770
square feet and is anticipated
to provide 120 jobs.
Phase one of the project is to
build a 45,600-square-foot Pub-
lix store and six outparcels, with
phase two being the completion
of four outparcels. The Publix
parking lot will have 349 spaces,
with an additional 119 spaces for
other tenants. The Publix store
and four outparcels will face
Laurel Road. Three outparcels
facing Pinebrook Road belong to
a different owner.
There will be about 24,000
square feet for 15 smaller
units adjoining the anchor
store. These will be built out
to customer requirements and
can vary in size.
Collard said he has letters
of intent from two national
companies for his plan to have
a fast food franchise, a bank
and a convenience store. Other
likely tenants include nail and
hair salons, a sandwich shop
and possibly a golf shop.
Collard expects to know

Fund helps rescued dogs


By SUSAN ERWIN
STAFF WRITER

It took Sarasota County
Animal Services two full days
to remove 263 dogs, many of
them in need of veterinary
care, from a Venice-area home
last week.
Seventy dogs have already
been transferred to area rescue
agencies.
With this week being
national Be Kind to Animals
Week, area shelters are hoping
that sparks more interest from
residents who wish to adopt
a dog.
Aside from being dirty and
flea-infested, the dogs initially
seemed to be in good health,
and several of them have been
placed in foster homes, accord-
ing to Claire Berten, director of
events and volunteer services
at the Suncoast Humane
Society in Englewood.
"Our first priority was getting
them cleaned up and exam-
ined," Berten said. "Now is
socialization time; they're cute
and wonderful but they are also
very traumatized and it could
take some time before they are
ready to enter a new home."
The rescued dogs vary in
ages. There are five 3-week-
old Jack Russell puppies at
Suncoast Humane that will be
available for adoption in about
six more weeks.
"They have to be a mini-
mum of 8 weeks old before
they can be adopted out," said
Berten. "Once they are emo-
tionally ready, we will post the
information on the website
(suncoasthumane.org.)"
In a prepared statement,


SUN HOUlu BY SUE KIVVIN, serwin@sun-herald.com
Claire Berten, director of events and volunteer services at the Suncoast
Humane Society in Englewood, holds one of the rescued dogs that will soon
be available for adoption.


Suncoast Humane Society
Executive Director Phil Snyder
said that in Sarasota County
"animal hoarding" has become
a serious problem.
"Originally called 'animal
collectors,' this sick behavior
was retitled 'hoarding' because


of the addictive behavior it
implied," he said.
Following this dog-hoarding
case, many area animal-rescue
facilities and other organiza-
tions have stepped in to help.

RESCUED 113


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Venice City Manager Ed
Lavallee this week offered
a strategy designed to end
the stalemate over a county
transfer of 10 miles of road to
the city.
Over the past year and a half
city leaders have acknowl-
edged the long-overdue
transfer of maintenance
responsibility for certain
county roads within the city,


such as Harbor Drive, but said
they couldn't afford it with the
economy lagging.
City and county administra-
tors have gone back and forth
on the issue of bringing the
county-maintained roads up
to city standards. Without
that, the city has refused
to accept the transfer. The
estimated cost to the county:
$31 million.
On Tuesday, Lavallee
said he'll propose a mile-a-
year plan, making the task


affordable all the way around.
"We're not getting any-
where," Lavallee said. "It might
provide a solution over 10
years.
"The agreement is they
would restore a mile a year. It
would be a lot easier to find
$3 million than $31 million,
and for us to incrementally
accept ownership of them.
It's not asking them for a lot
of money up front. It gives
them a solution in an amor-
tized way, and shows some

speed


limit eyed

By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Venice City Council Member
Kit McKeon appears to have
sold his fellow members on
reducing the speed limit on
U.S. 41 Business south of Ven-
ice Regional Medical Center, at
least while the bypass is under
construction.
The speed limit currently
is 35 mph from the Hatchett
Creek Bridge to just south of
the hospital, where it goes up
to 45 mph. The speed limit on
the bypass is also 45 mph.
The concept was floated
in prior bypass discussions,
but with construction begin-
ning next year, McKeon said
it's time to begin thinking in
earnest about the traffic snarl
the road-widening project
might cause as drivers seek
an alternative route, putting
more automobiles onto the
island.
He, and Jeanette Gates
previously, championed the
speed limit reduction not only
as a short-term solution to a
potential problem, but as a
permanent way to allow street-
legal golf carts onto downtown
streets.
Dave Sherman called it

SPEED 113


diplomacy on our part. Let's
move this along rather than
putting it off another year."
Council Member Emilio
Carlesimo said gasoline taxes
put into an escrow account
could be a source of future city
maintenance funds.
The Board of County Com-
missioners and Venice City
Council will hold a joint meet-
ing to discuss that and other
issues in early October.

Be sure to pay careful
attention to your polling
place this coming elec-
tion. Precinct locations
may change.
Sarasota County
Supervisor of Elections
Kathy Dent says she will
reduce the number of
precincts for the Nov. 6
general election as part
of a redistricting effort.
"(It) presents opportu-
nities for us to streamline
the electoral process here
in Sarasota County," Dent
said. "With the increase
in the number of people
who vote early and
absentee, we will be able
to consolidate precincts,
which will result in
substantial savings of
taxpayer dollars. We will
also be able to select the
best polling locations
available and draw from
an outstanding pool
of poll workers to staff
them."
Countywide, Dent
intends to cut the current
156 precincts down to 98.


Venice, with 11 pre-
cincts, will see cuts to "a
few, if that," Dent said.
The Board of County
Commissioners will give
final approval of precinct
changes offered by Dent
on May 22.

Bicycle tourism plan applauded


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Venice's Economic
Development Advisory
Board on Tuesday un-
veiled a bicycle tourism
and wayfinding plan,
requesting $165,000 for
implementation. The
plan drew accolades from
city council members.
The city has miles
of pathways, includ-
ing the well-traveled
Venetian Waterway Park
and Legacy Trail, not to
mention dozens of parks.
Longtime parks board
member and bike enthu-
siast Monty Andrews was
instrumental in pulling
together resources for the
plan. He's been pursuing
a formal, nationally rec-
ognized "bike-friendly"
designation for the city.
Chair Candice Roberts
laid the groundwork for
a plan designed to attract
bicyclists, clubs and tour
groups.
"Our focus is on lever-
aging our current assets,"
Roberts said. "You can
see bicycling is a growing
trend. We could make a
minimal investment and
potentially reap a very
large return.
"I believe we could set
ourselves apart from other
cities vying for the same
tourism dollars. We could
lead with that, and close
with all the other fabulous
attributes in our city."
The board surveyed a
number of bike clubs to
ascertain interest, like


the Stark County (Ohio)
Bike Club, which visits
Venice annually spending
roughly $37,000 per trip.
The Central Indiana Bike
Club will spend an esti-
mated $10,000 this year.
"In 2005, I visited
Venice to see for myself
and was immediately im-
pressed with the cycling
possibilities in the area,"
said Allen Jones, Florida
Trip organizer for the
Stark County Bike Club.
"Everyone has been
impressed with the
improvement in the
Legacy Trail in just a few
years. The restaurants in
Venice have been a great
reason for returning year
after year. Everyone has
their favorite and we
often have group dinners
at the same establish-
ments year after year.
Several of our members
are quite acquainted with
the thrift shops in the
area. Participation in the
Florida trip has grown
from 12 to 45. Several
years ago participation
had grown so much that
we decided to add a
second week."
Legacy Trail this year
saw its March traffic
estimates up 35 percent
since November, going
from 19,000 trail users to
21,000 year to year.
Roberts estimates the
impact of attracting a
dozen new bike groups
per year at $120,000, and
up to $360,000 for 36
groups.
The price tag: $15,000


for year-one marketing
efforts.
John Ryan, president
and CEO of the Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce,
said he supports educa-
tional rack cards in tour-
ism centers that tout the
"Top 10 Bicycling Things to
Know AboutVenice.
Council members
Jeanette Gates and Bob
Daniels said the city
could promote the effort
through bike-friendly
road striping.
The city already is
home to a number of
annual bicycle events.
Roberts also unveiled
a wayfinding plan to pro-
vide better signs, enabling
people to easily find
Venice events and tourist
attractions. With signs at
roughly $3,000 to $4,000,
Roberts estimates it will
cost the city $100,000 to
$150,000 for 35 signs.
She even identified a
funding source: $200,000
in uncommitted 1-cent
sales tax receipts.
Council will consider
the request in upcoming
budget discussions.
"I would support this
kind of thing even if it
didn't bring a nickel to
the city," said Council
Member Jim Bennett.
"A very large number of
residents ... are bikers.
The concepts are really
good. Quite exciting."
"I don't know what
to say," said Mayor
John Holic. "Excellent
presentation."

Teachers, district agree



to 2.2 percent bonus


By STEVEN J. SMITH
SUN CORRESPONDENT

The Sarasota County
School District and the
Sarasota Classified/
Teachers Association
agreed Friday to a bonus
of 2.2 percent of employ-
ee salaries for the 2012-13
school year, which will
average between $1,100
and $1,400 for teachers,
paid in two installments.
Barry Dubin, executive
director for the SC/TA,
said it had been nearly
four years since the union
- which represents about
2,800 teachers and 2,200
other district employees
- received a cost-of-
living increase. The
district's starting salary for
a teacher with a bachelor's
degree and less than three
years of teaching experi-
ence is $38,997.
"There had been some
step raises up until a
couple of years ago,"
Dubin said. "But only half
of the people got those.
We're obviously emerging
from a very bad time,
and this is encouraging.
I've negotiated much
richer deals in my career,
but this one was pretty
satisfying, because it
shows us emerging from
a pretty dry period."
Dubin said the union
will vote on the contract
by the end of May
and the school board


will follow suit shortly
thereafter, most likely at
its first meeting in June.
Funding the increase
- which will be paid out
in two lump sums at the
winter break and the end
of the school year will
cost about $15 million
and will come from re-
serves accrued during the
real estate boom and sug-
gestions for cuts made
by MGT of America, the
consulting firm recently
hired to conduct an ap-
praisal of school district
operations. According to
AlWeidner, deputy CFO,
two of those suggestions
were eliminating nine
nonteaching positions
(saving $370,000) and
reducing the number
of days teachers' aides
work, from 196 to 186


(saving $150,000).
School Board Member
Jane Goodwin said the
financial outlook is a
little better this coming
year than last, due to the
fact that Gov. Rick Scott
restored $1 billion of the
$1.3 billion he removed
from the state's school
budget in 2011-12. She
also praised the SC/TA
for its spirit of coopera-
tion in collective bargain-
ing talks in the past.
Dubin agreed and
applauded his union
members.
"It ends the year nicely,"
Dubin said. "It shows the
employees that their sac-
rifices have been appreci-
ated. I think it's a good
deal for the taxpayers and
I think it's a good deal for
everybody involved."

Beverly Y. Propes
Beverly Young Propes
passed away peacefully
in the critical care unit of
Venice Regional Medical
Center in Venice, Fla.,
after suffering a seizure
Sunday, April 29, 2012,
with her son, "Chip," and
caregiver Betty Stealey by
her side. She was 86.
Beverly was born to
Norman G. Young and
Doris M. Stark in Altoona,
Pa., Feb. 3, 1926. She
graduated from Phoenix-
ville, Pa., High School and
Lawson Junior College in
Connecticut.
Beverly married Carl
Propes of Pottstown, Pa.,
on Sept. 3, 1949, and
together they had three
children. They moved
from Detroit, Mich., to
Swarthmore, Pa., and
finally to Clarks Green,
Pa., as Carl pursued his
career in banking and
Bev raised her children
and took care of their
home. Following her
divorce, Bev moved to
Venice in 1982 to be
near her father, Nor-
man, stepmother, Lucy,
younger sister, Marilyn,
and brother-in-law, Bill.
Once in Venice and
newly divorced, Bev


taught herself to re-enter
the working world for the
first time in more than 30
years. She first had a suc-
cessful career in the trust
department of SunTrust
Bank in Venice, and later
she worked for Nielsen
Research entering and
checking survey data.
She demonstrated to all
who knew her how it was
possible for a housewife
in her 50s to re-enter the
working world and be
successful. She finally
retired from Nielsen
when she turned 80.
Beverly enjoyed keep-
ing her home spotless,
and interior design. When
she was younger she was
quite an accomplished
marimba player. She also
enjoyed playing bridge.
In her years in Venice
she loved to sit on her
back porch and watch
the squirrels play and
birds move through the
neighborhood.
Beverly was preceded
in death by her mother
and father, as well as
her two siblings, Nor-
man and Marilyn. She
is survived by her three
children, "Chip," Andrew
and Alison; and two
grandchildren, Lindsay
and Alex.
Services: A viewing
will be held at Farley
Funeral Home, Venice,
on Thursday, May 10,
from 5 to 6 p.m., followed
by a Celebration of Life
service at 6 p.m.
Contributions: In lieu
of flowers, memorial
donations may be made
to the Humane Society or
to the ASPCA.

Gloria V. Scoboria
Gloria Van Wart
Scoboria passed away
Saturday, April 28, 2012,
in Dearborn, Mich., at the
age of 97.
She was born Jan. 31,
1915, in Brooklyn to Irving
and Marion Van Wart.
In 1924 she moved with
her family to Glenbrook,
Conn. She graduated from


Darien High School and
from Tufts College with a
joint major in history and
education.
At Tufts,
she met
Clarence
a .nd Preston
"Scibby"
Scoboria.
They were
married in
1938, and they shared rich
and full lives together. A
few years after their mar-
riage they moved to Bucks
County, Pa., built a home
and raised a family. Both
of them taught school,
and Scibby coached cross
country, wrestling and
track. Gloria accompanied
the teams to each event,
photographed the action
and gave the boys a party
at the end of every season.
During the summer the
family operated a tree and
landscaping business and
built a group of small gift
shops. Upon retirement in
1974, Gloria and Scibby
moved first to West Vir-
ginia and then to Florida,
where they bought a
house in Nokomis. They
started another business,
Bokay, and traveled the
eastern U.S. selling dried
flower arrangements
at crafts shows. Scibby
suffered a stroke in 1982
and Gloria cared for him
until his death in 1994.
She remained active in
the Friends of the Venice
Library, the Audubon
Society and the Unitarian
Universalist Church of
Venice. She lived in the
yellow house on Laurel
Road until 2008, when
she moved to Dearborn
to live with her son
Raymond.
Gloria was a writer
all of her life, starting at
age 15 when she wrote a
local events column for
the Darien (Connecticut)
Review. In Bucks County,
she edited the Tinicum
Township Bulletin for
many years. She was a
longtime member of
the Life History writing
class of Venice, Fla. She


wrote family histories
and biographies, and
together with Scibby,
wrote "We Will Do It
Together" on how to live
with stroke. Always, she
wrote letters, newspaper
articles and letters to the
editor. She was a gentle
and determined person
and her clear, thoughtful
writing often helped lead
to change.
Gloria is survived by
her four children, Pres-
ton Scoboria and wife,
Kathleen, of Reading, Pa.,
Ray Scoboria and wife,
Jane, of Dearborn, Mich.,
Lynn Scoboria Greening
and husband, Ted Green-
ing, of Erwinna, Pa., and
Dave Scoboria and wife,
Linda, of Bellingham,
Wash.; as well as nine
grandchildren and 11
great-grandchildren.
Gloria was a loving
wife, mother and friend.
She was cheerful and
curious about life, and
lived every day with quiet
sincerity. She taught her
children to love life and
its blessings, to give back
to their communities
and to respect the beliefs
of others. She described
her philosophy this way:
"We are fortunate, out of
the millions of human
seeds scattered in this
world, to be a few of the
ones to survive to enjoy
this beautiful place. It is a
wonderful world, unique
in all of space. Be careful
of it. Be happy."
Services: A memo-
rial service for Gloria is
planned for this summer
in Bucks County, Pa.

Nurses get the spa treatment


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

It was a special
morning at the spa
Monday for nurses at
Venice Regional Medi-
cal Center to celebrate
Nurses Week 2012.
One hundred employ-
ees were expected to
take advantage of the
treatments offered for
free during a three-hour
pampering session by
James Griffith Salon.
Taking a very brief
break from their stress-
ful jobs, they came from
all floors to an area of
the hospital set up as


wellness stations where
James and Christine
Griffith and six of their
team from the Venice
salon provided them
special attention.
"They are being
treated to hair, makeup,
hand massages and
aromatherapy during
a short break on their
stressful day shift," said
organizer Kim Lem-
onde, nursing supervi-
sor. "This is the first
time we have welcomed
the James Griffith team
and a nice addition to
this week."
Visiting nurses
receive stress-releasing


lavender oil from Aveda,
a $20 salon gift card, a
discount on products
and complimentary
consultations about
hair, skin and whatever
else they need.
"We're told the night
shift needs some love
too, so we are planning
to do something for
them," said Griffith.
It was the third year
they have celebrated
Nurses' week by visit-
ing employees on each
floor of the hospital
with dessert carts,
offering small gifts,
participating in a raffle
and staging a dinner


said Lemonde. In
addition to the variety
of other activities for
nurses throughout the
week provided by local
businesses, is a fitness
day with Island Zumba.
"Venice Regional
Medical Center is
honored that the James
Griffith Salon team has
taken time out of their
schedules to support
our nurses! It is a great
thing when the commu-
nity comes together to
support one another,"
said Pete Wozniak, chief
executive officer.

nizations are invited to
participate in the Venice
Farmers Market, said
organizer Linda Watson.
Since taking over the
event, which takes place
Saturday from 8 a.m.

West Tampa Avenue by
Centennial Park, she has
increased the number
of vendors to 38. Fifty-
nine percent sell fresh

and greenery, while
25 percent offer hand-
made jewelry, crafts and
clothing.
Community service
organizations including
Venice Police Senior
Call Service, a Sarasota


veterans association
and World Vision have
participated.
Watson grew up in
Torrington, Conn., where
her father managed fairs.
"I enjoyed a wonderful
lifestyle growing up on
a farm and now I want
to educate the younger
generation on the
benefits of local produce
and farmers markets,"
said Watson.
She traveled exten-
sively doing design and
drafting with IBM and
Colt Industries until she
came to Venice in 2001.
In 2010 she took over the
farmers market, bringing
her marketing skills to
enhance the event. Call

Publix's response
With the Albertson's
store on the bypass clos-
ing soon, rumors are rife
that other supermarkets


have looked at that
location, or may be
considering the former
Kmart building adjoin-
ing the recently remod-
eled Jacaranda Plaza.
Suggestions that Publix
- which formerly
occupied the space
where Lifestyle Family
Fitness is should
consider acquiring a
property nearby brought
the following response
from Shannon Patten,
media and community
relations manager:
"We are always looking
for future locations to
serve our customers, but
at this time we are focus-
ing our efforts on getting
our two new stores off
the ground. We are look-
ing forward to growing in
Venice with the addition
of new stores at Pin-
ebrook and Laurel and
West Villages."

BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Factors likely to shake
up how we think about
ourselves, our country
and our state today, and
more important, how
we plan and meet the
business and lifestyle
of tomorrow, were
highlighted by Tim Dut-
ton, representing the
Institute for the Ages, in
a presentation recently
to a group of Venice
area business people.
There are 40 mil-
lion Americans over
age 65 today, he said,
but by 2050 there will
be nearly 90 million.
Goods and services
must change with
this demographic
transition, and pub-
lic resources, the
characteristics of our
workforce and the very
structure of communi-
ties must prepare to
meet new challenges.
In the last decade


the U.S. population
increased by 25 million,
with more than half
settling in the South,
followed by the West at
a distant second with
33 percent. Slowed by
the economic downturn,
it is already starting to
pick up again.
Since World War
II the workforce has
been predominately
male, but now the
sexes are about equally
represented. Men bore
80 percent of all job
losses between 2007
and 2009.
Education is changing
too, with women in the
class of 2010 receiv-
ing 193,000 more A.A.
degrees, 244,000 more
B.A. degrees, 134,000
more M.A. degrees and
1,400 more doctor-
ates. The wage gap is
the narrowest in U.S.
history.
With aging and loss
of jobs, more grand-
parents are caring for


grandchildren. Dur-
ing the last decade it
amounted to 24 percent.
Forty percent of those
are living with their
grandmother only, and
more likely to have a low
income.
Seventy-nine million
baby boomers will retire;
currently 12,000 turn 65
each day.
Seventy-nine percent
of total net worth and
80 percent of all money
in savings and loans is
held by retirees. Com-
pared to any other age
group, they watch more
TV read more news-
papers and account
for 40 percent of total
consumer demand.
Concluding, Dutton
emphasized the need
for the workforce to
respond to these con-
sumers by understand-
ing the aging process as
the world approaches a
new threshold.

What happens when you drive drunk in the woods?


Three Venice-area men
were arrested after crash-
ing into a metal gate to
gain access into Deer
Prairie Creek Preserve
and getting stuck.
According to a Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office
report:
A man called 911 early
Monday morning saying
his vehicle struck a tree,
ejected a passenger and
was stuck in the water. A
man was bleeding, he said.
A search was conduced
by five deputies, including
the K-9 unit, two ambu-
lances and the sheriff's
office helicopter. What
they found was a white
1995 Ford truck stuck in
the sand, and two occu-
pants too intoxicated to
give any information.
A third man, who said
the driver fled into the
woods, was discovered to
be the driver who called
911.
The driver, Brandon
Richard Finch, 24, from
Nokomis, was charged
with trespassing, misuse
of 911, providing false
information during an
investigation and prop-
erty damage. Passengers
Jason Leach, 33, and
Robert Rutter, 40, both of
Venice, were arrested for
trespassing.
At the jail Finch said,
"This is what happens
when you drive drunk in
the woods."

SUN NEWSPAPERS


OUR VIEW



Public money needs a public purpose


We're a little skeptical about
Sarasota County's idea to
set up a new program that
would fund the rehabilitation of small
businesses.
One big question: Why exactly are
we using taxpayers' money to do this?
We love our small businesses, but
shouldn't they be responsible for their
own building improvements unless
there is a specific, overriding public
interest in spurring redevelopment
in a targeted area? Will a shotgun
approach have any discernible
impact?
According to the general outline
from county staff, the program
would provide matching grants of
up to $7,500 for business owners or
long-term tenants who want to fix
up buildings, either inside or out.
The rationale is that 75 percent of the
county's work force is employed at
small businesses, which have been
hit hard by the recession and need a
boost.


The money would be matched
dollar for dollar, up to $7,500. The
proposal is in such early stages that
the funding source hasn't been deter-
mined. It might come from general
revenues, the Community Housing
Fund or the Economic Incentive
Fund.
These types of programs are noth-
ing new, but the scope of this one is.
The Englewood Community
Redevelopment Area, for instance, has
had a storefront improvement fund
that has given out $179,000 in match-
ing funds during the past eight years.
Businesses in the CRA are eligible for
$15,000 in dollar-for-dollar matching
grants for facades, roofs, windows,
awnings and the like. Right now,
$50,000 can be allotted annually, but
that could be increased if the need is
there.
In fact, there is great demand this
year, said CRA Coordinator Debbie
Marks: Three businesses have already
applied and two more applications are


expected soon.
This program in this place makes
sense. The very purpose of the CRA
is to redevelop Englewood's historic
small-business district. Providing
incentives for makeovers meets the
specific aim. That's the point.
On the other hand, making the
entire county eligible dilutes the
impact. We lose the nesting effect by
giving grants to random businesses on
a first-come, first-served basis.
Then there is the question of
whether franchises would be eligible.
People usually think of mom-and-pop
stores as exactly that mom and pop
behind the counter of a deli or shoe
repair store. But small businesses are
often chain franchises. In fact, county
officials said, they may be eligible.
And why not? No doubt they could
use a hand.
And then, the money will go
quickly. Again, why not? As Commis-
sioner Nora Patterson put it, "This is
going to be like winning the lottery."


Something about that doesn't sit
right.
In recent years, Sarasota County has
pumped millions into its Economic
Incentive Funds to retain bigger busi-
nesses or attract others. Why not give
small businesses a break too?
The difference is the incentive
program is tied specifically to job
creation or job retention. This has
none of that. It's just something
to help random small businesses
improve their buildings. That's not a
bad thing, but we question whether
it's an appropriate use of public
funds.
It might make more sense to target
the redevelopment of downtown,
like Englewood's or Venice's, or the
strip malls and businesses along
U.S. 41. If nothing else, keep it
visible, with exterior improvements.
Other than that, this just seems like
a feel-good program. We should be
able to find better uses for taxpayers'
money.


Project (Safe) Graduation


You can feel the excitement
as Memorial Day approaches
and the end of the school
year is just around the corner.
Our seniors across this nation
of ours are experiencing the
euphoria of completion and the
anticipation of that which is yet
to come in their young lives.
For most, graduation night
will come and there will be
various types of celebrations
that include families getting
together to wish the graduate
well. Others will be of groups
of graduates at various loca-
tions in their community.
Unfortunately, the after-par-
ties for these young adults seem
to have lots of temptations,
with the celebrating moving
to a different level. Alcohol or
other substances often are part
of these celebrations, and while
the party starts out innocently,
it can end in tragedy.
Too many times we have
heard or read about tragedies
that have ruined athletes'
futures, created permanent
disabilities and even ended
lives. These types of tragedies
have far-reaching effects on
family, friends and the com-
munity and leave permanent
scars on those associated with
the victims. It is truly sad when
all those years of work are
destroyed in an instant.
Enter our very own Venice
High School Project Gradua-
tion. For 25 years this event
has been a safe haven for
graduating seniors a place
to go to celebrate responsibil-
ity, to enjoy the first night of
graduation with those who put
in the same time and effort to
get there and, most important,
to ensure these young people
are safe for the night.
This year the event will be
held at the South County Fam-
ily YMCA on June 1, immedi-
ately following the 2012 VHS
graduation ceremony. Com-
munity support to put on this
event for these bright young
men and women is needed.
There will be drawings
throughout the night for various
prizes such as gift certificates,


merchandise and cash. Food
donations from our many
restaurants will be helpful as
this group will be hungry. It is an
all-night event, so you can bet
staples like soda, chips popcorn,
cookies and candy will be
consumed all through the event.
Grand prizes are often the
deciding factor for those on
the fence about attending
and could be the difference
between a great night and a
sad night for graduates. Let's
all work together to make it a
great night for all our graduat-
ing seniors and be a part of the
reason they come to the YMCA.
Donations for $500 scholar-
ships are needed. Laptop
computers are a great incen-
tive, and digital cameras and
jewelry also serve as strong
attendance motivation.
We here at the Gondolier Sun
endorse this program strongly
and think we should help raise
these types of donations, so
much so that we will give a
quarter-page ad to any busi-
ness that donates $500 or more.
Additionally, we will make the
space to print the names of
every donor who gives for this
event. That's a pretty fair deal,
we think, so come on get a
scholarship with your business
name attached out there for the
graduates.
I want to give a big shout out
to Stacy Pinkerton, who took
the time to come by and get me
better informed about this proj-
ect. We had a delightful meet-
ing about ways to get as many
people and businesses involved
in this program as possible. Her
dedication and sincerity are
contagious, and it was my good
luck to meet with her that day.
Thank you for caring, Stacy.
How many lives are saved
we will never know; how
many injuries that never
happened because of this
program we can't guess; how
many innocent people's lives
are unaffected when we keep
these kids safe is really not
quantifiable. What I do know
is that those kids who attend
are remembered as happy
graduates who got on with life
after graduation night. If they
had not been there, the odds
are strong we would have lost
some of them.
Think about that as June 1
turns to June 2, and know there
are people like Stacy Pinkerton
and Julie Scarry out there with
our graduates all night long.

HOW SHOULD THE CITY OF VENICE HANDLE ITS ISSUES WITH UNFUNDED CITY PENSIONS?


CALL US AT 941-207-1111.
No dogs. A comment about
dogs in restaurants: Right now
in the city of Venice there is no
law covering doggie dining.
There is one being worked on
by city council. It hasn't been
put into law yet. So right now,
it's no different from smok-
ing in a restaurant. If you're
smoking in a restaurant, you're
breaking the law. The owners
are allowing you to smoke
in the restaurant. Right now,
any owner that lets dogs go
dining at their establishment
are breaking the law. There is
no law right now that you can
bring a dog to a restaurant
and do doggie dining. There
will be a permit fee choosing
to let dogs dine in the outside
cafe and there will be rules
to follow. But as of right now,
they're breaking the rules. A
service animal is the only dog
that qualifies.
Crime prevention. I agree
all pets should be spayed or
neutered. We would prevent
more burglaries if more people
adopted dogs from the many
shelters.
New life. Venice residents,
have you seen what bringing
family entertainment has done
to Venice recently? The Cirque
Aquatic show surely brought
back a lot of life to Venice. Have
you seen the crowds going in
and have you heard how great
the show is? Maybe this will
make the residents of Venice
realize what such entertain-
ment of this type can do for
enjoyment of our citizens and
winter visitors. People young
and old sure came out in
droves to see it. Just imagine
what repairing the Circus Arena
would mean to bringing back
family entertainment again.
Off the board. I'm 83 years
old and I got a prescription
from my physician to go get
blood work. We went to three
labs and were turned down.
We were told my physician was


Let 'em


Have It
not a member of the board. It
never occurred to me to ask
my physician if he is a member
of the board. I don't even know
what board. The fourth lab, I
finally got it. I have insurance
and Medicare and I don't really
know what it means when they
are not a member of the board.
We were literally escorted out
the door. Perhaps someone
could call and fill me in about
what they're talking about. It is
really shocking.
Soak them. It looks to me
like Venice City Council and
Sarasota County could use
their time better than to try to
get money out of somebody
who is doing yoga on the
beach. Well, what's it going to
be next? First it will be volley-
ball, football toss and finding
sharks' teeth. Walking will be
next; running is out. And don't
forget the surfers. You got to
get them too.
Go county. The recent
writer about 911 should have
attended the council meeting
with the county to get the
information correct. Here are
the facts about 911 dispatch.


The county stated it would
staff the Venice 911 center
with five Venice dispatchers.
That's if Venice would go with
using the 911 service from
the county. The county also
stated that it always has open
positions and would use the
remaining four people. In
fact, it indicated there were
12 positions open. You don't
get a voicemail when you call
911. Next, all fire stations in
the county use the county 911
service and then the Venice
fire people are dispatched.
All police departments in the
county, exceptVenice and
North Port, use the county 911
to call in service. If we use the
county 911 dispatch service,
they would still automatically
dispatch our Venice Police
Department to take care of
the problem. Venice dispatch
costs the taxpayers of Venice
annually about $300,000. This
savings comes right out of
the taxpayers' fund. So let's
avoid more cop layoffs and
property tax increases and use
the county 911 system. Also,
Venice would not be liable for
any problems with 911 calling.
The county also has better
technical equipment. So let's
get our facts correct.

SUN NEWSPAPERS 9A


A tale of three beaches


Sarasota County is
blessed with natural
resources that are among
the finest in the nation.
The crown jewel among
them? Our beaches.
Beaches are the foun-
dation of our economy,
a primary reason people
visit Sarasota County
(second to visiting
friends and family).
When county residents
ranked their priorities for
public funding, "water
quality and natural sys-
tems" was No. 4, behind
paramedic and fire
services and roads (2008
County Priorities Survey).


But resident priorities
are not reflected in local
government decisions
when it comes to maxi-
mizing the recreational
and economic benefits of
our beaches.
Siesta Beach was
named the No. 1 beach
in America by Dr. Beach,
but other local beaches
won't make the list due
to inadequate amenities
or water contamina-
tion problems. County
government plays fairy
godmother to Siesta,
while it treats other
local shores like ugly
stepsisters.
Dr. Beach praises Siesta
Beach for its fine white
sand, clean, clear water
and amenities. Residents
love Siesta and would
like improved access. The
problem is parking.
The county has
endorsed a $20 million
Siesta improvement
project that includes a


net increase in parking of
130 spaces. Sounds good,
but the county turned
down a plan that would
net 459 extra spaces and
cost $2 million less. The
difference? Plantings
and beautification that
increase the price but
result in only a modest
improvement in parking.
Many beautification
advocates were behind
the cheaper, more plenti-
ful parking plan, but the
county preferred the
more expensive, reduced
parking plan. Go figure.
(Note: The county has
put parking on the back
burner while Siesta water
quality issues are reme-
died, but the philosophy
remains.)
Then there's Lido
Beach, one ignored
sister. Longtime residents
remember the leveling
of the much loved Lido
Casino. It was a land-
mark amenity, a popular


gathering place for
people of all ages. City
commissioners failed to
renovate the structure,
in spite of 2 to 1 voter
approval for a $250,000
bond to fund improve-
ments. They demolished
it instead.
The current Lido Pool
is in need of a facelift
(estimated cost $1 mil-
lion). Yet there has been
talk in government about
closing or privatizing
Lido Pool due to lack of
funds. Unfortunately,
the county kicked Lido
Pool to the curb in
2010, claiming it didn't
have funds to sustain it,
foisting its sustenance on
the dual-taxed residents
of the city of Sarasota.
Amazing how easy it is
for the county to come
up with millions for
Siesta while Lido goes
without.
Let's not forgetVenice
Beach, plagued by enteric


(read: fecal) bacteria con-
tamination and subject
to routine closings that
disrupt visitor and resi-
dent access. Bewildered
and unable to pinpoint
the cause of Venice Beach
contamination, last year
local government was
assisted by a middle-
school student's science
project that identified
beach outfalls (pipes car-
rying untreated storm-
water) as the source.
AVenice city engineer
recently confirmed the
youngster's findings.
Perhaps if Venice
Beach had skyboxes,
county leadership would
have taken an interest.
With the cause of con-
tamination identified,
problems with untreated
stormwater runoff must
now be addressed. The
solution ought to take
into account that the
presence of numerous
outfalls and lousy water


quality are a significant
barrier to Venice or any
shoreline making the top
beach list.
The focus and energy
lavished on man-made
projects is missing from
the county's commit-
ment to our beaches.
Residents have made it
clear what we value; gov-
ernment leaders should
act accordingly.
When the county punts
beach welfare to munici-
palities, it is abandoning
a key constituent prior-
ity. It's time to trade a
masters-of-the-universe
approach for a stewards-
of-the-earth strategy. It's
the right thing to do, and
the right thing for our
economy.

dent of Sarasota Citizens

I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Keep the

jazz downtown

Editor:
Shame on the leader-
ship of Venice Main-
Street for proposing
to prohibit afternoon
concerts at the gazebo
in Centennial Park in
downtown Venice. In
jeopardy are the free
concerts performed
by Tony Onorato's
Gentlemen of Jazz and
Bill Anderson's Happy
Time Band, which
have become a cultural
trademark of Venice.
MainStreet petitioned
city council to ban all
weekday afternoon
concerts, claiming that
attendees were taking up
too many (public) park-
ing spaces and shopping
too little. MainStreet also
sought sign-off authority
allowing it to veto any

public use of Centennial
Park, surprising initia-
tives for an organization
supposedly "dedicated to
enhancing the quality of
life in our community."
In fact, these concerts
provide an economic
stimulus to restaurants
and businesses in Venice
as concert attendees are
drawn downtown from
as far as Sarasota. More
than one decision to
relocate and buy a home


in Venice has probably
been made while listen-
ing to jazz at the gazebo.
City council should
reject Venice MainStreet's
attempt to dictate the
use of public property,
thereby preserving the
economically beneficial
and thoroughly enjoyable
afternoon concerts at the
gazebo.

BASEBALL CLASS 7A-REGION 3 SEMIFINAL




Venice victorious over Manatee


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

The scoreboard at G.T. Bray
went out before Venice started
its game with Manatee.
It didn't matter as the Indians
knew they were scoring runs by
the roar from the large contin-
gent of Venice fans surrounding
the field.
The Indians scored six runs
over the first four innings en
route to a 7-4 victory over
the Hurricanes in the Class
7A-Region 3 semifinal on
Tuesday night.
The Indians (21-8) play at
Tampa Gaither on Friday.
Gaither defeated Seminole,
6-1 in the other regional
semifinal game.
Last year, Gaither knocked
the Indians out of the playoffs
with a 1-0 win in the regional
quarterfinal.
"We take every game one
game at time," said Venice
coach Craig Faulkner. "Gaither
is next. We are really looking
forward to going up there.
We have a lot of seniors who
played in that game and had a
bad taste in their mouth in the
end right there. We're looking
as far as Gaither. That is it. We
will be giving them our full
attention."
This was the fifth meeting
between Manatee and Venice
this year with the 'Canes hold-
ing a 3-2 edge.
Venice got the one it needed
when it mattered the most.
"We like to play teams a lot
because we learn a lot from
teams," said Faulkner. "We do
a lot of scouting. When we play
people in the district in the
Sarasota Classic it's an advan-
tage for us. We get to see a team
five times and we battled them
every time. We felt like we were

Venice jumped all over


Manatee ace pitcher Correlle
Prime in the first inning.
Sophomore Michael Rivera
walked. With courtesy runner
Colton Lightner running, senior
Grant Banko ripped a double
into the right-center field gap
to score Lightner.
"I was looking for first-pitch
fastball and I wanted to get my
hands through it and square
it up," said Banko, who went
7-for-13 against Manatee this
season.
"That is stepping up for
a senior right there," said
Faulkner about Banko's hitting
against Manatee. "We were
going to bunt there and I just
got a hunch that he was feeling
good up there and I let him
swing and he hit the ball well."


A strikeout and groundout
moved Banko to third base.
Nick Longhi followed by hitting
a high chopper past shortstop
scoring Banko to give Venice a
2-0 lead.
"In the scorebook it looks
like a screamer," said Longhi
about the hit. "Off Correlle I
will take any hit. He's a heck of
a pitcher."
"That first inning sets the
tone for the game and gets our
team pumped up for the rest of
the game," said Banko.
Manatee tied it with two
runs in the second inning off
Venice starter Brandon Elmy.
Trevor Beeman slugged a home
run over the left field fence on
the first pitch of the inning.
Daniel Kerwin singled. After
a strikeout and groundout,
Cord Sandberg struck out but
reached first base on a wild
pitch on third strike moving
courtesy runner Zach Hill to
third base. Chase Sandberg
followed with a RBI single into
left field.
With runners at first and
second, Faulkner brought in
relief pitcher Tyson Albert, who
normally starts. Albert got a
force out at second base to end
the inning.
Venice went ahead 5-2 by
scoring three runs with two
outs in the third inning.
Rivera led off and was hit by
a pitch. A wild pitch moved
courtesy runner Lightner to
second base. After two strike-
outs, Brandon Elmy was hit by
a pitch. Longhi followed with
a single into short right-center
field scoring Lightner. The ball
was booted in the outfield for
an error moving Elmy to third
base and Longhi to second.

BRIEFSI11


By ROB SHORE
STAFF WRITER

A pickup roared up to
Bonita Barn, and Taylor
Leigh and Venice High
School classmate Kelsey
Behler hopped out. The
girls went straight to the
pens to bridle the horses
for a late afternoon ride.
Lillie, the horse Leigh
trains with a few days a
week, gently accepted the
bridle, and Behler held
her steady. Lillie's stable-
mate Kraft saw the girls
and galloped away.
"She's just playful,"
explained Leigh, a Venice
High student who resides
in North Port.
It was almost a dance
as Leigh started toward
Kraft with the bridle and
the filly trotted away.
Finally, Kraft accepted
the bridle, and the two
girls hopped on the
horses.
This is somewhere
Leigh, aVenice High
junior, feels at home -
riding Lillie around the
pen, trotting, jumping
or just co-existing. Leigh
has been riding for eight
years and has ambitions
of riding in college, pos-
sibly at the University of
Florida.
These ambitions were
given a boost in January
when she placed in two
events at the College Pre-
paratory Invitational at
the Palm Beach Interna-
tional Equestrian Center.
Collegiate riding involves
riders pooling their
horses (in Leigh's case,

horses), then drawing
a horse at random to
compete on.
"You have to figure out
their tweaks and every-
thing in five minutes,"
Leigh said. "(But) I can
figure out how to pep
them up."
One of her goals is to
ride Lillie in the United
States Equestrian Federa-
tion Pony Finals, one of
the premier events on the
U.S. Equestrian Federa-
tion's schedule, which are
scheduled for Aug. 7-12
at the Kentucky Horse
Park in Lexington, Ky.
She first became inter-
ested years ago, seeing
some horses in a field by
the side of the road.

that it would be a kind

of hobby," said Leigh's
mother, Kelly. "She pro-
gressed from there. She
just took to it. She was a
natural."
Since then, Leigh's had
10 horses to get to her
current level. She didn't
get along with all of them
- after graduating from
her "beginner" horse, she
tried one that was a little
beyond her skill level.
After three months,


Leigh and her parents
decided to find a differ-
ent horse.
"He was just too much
horse," Leigh said. "I was
a beginner and didn't
know very much."
She said that usually it
takes about a year to get
to know a new horse and
its quirks.
She talked about the
connection between
horse and rider almost


like falling in love, calling
that first connection "a
spark."
But that isn't to say it
was love at first ride with
Lillie.
"The first time I rode
her, she bucked me off,"
Leigh said, laughing. "So
it wasn't very good. But I
thought she was pretty,
and she looked good."
But she's growing quite
attached to 5-year-old
Lillie. She's more like a
member of the family
than a pet, and Leigh
feels the love.
"(She's) wanting to be
around you," she said.
"When I let her go, she'll
stick around for a little
bit."

200 North Port lots under scrutiny


By CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

The last of the aban-
doned lots that brought
$34.2 million to North Port
in a 2006 auction are being
reviewed for potential sale
or use, Sarasota County
commissioners were told
during Monday's budget
workshop in Sarasota.
David Cash, county
director of facilities, briefly
mentioned the county's
interest in properties within
the city during a presenta-
tion of 1,100 county-owned
sites. His presentation
focused more on an update
of the county's facilities
master plan, consolidation


SITE
FROM PAGE 1

something Council Mem-
ber Bob Daniels disputed,
and is too compact, with
minimal parking of 38
spaces.
Challenger also balked
at paying to move a
county maintenance and
storage unit.
Daniels said Challenger
never considered using the
concrete block storage unit
as a base for its concession
stand, and building the
fields around it.
Staff went further,


of county operations, a
facilities inventory and
properties with cost needs,
such as the 24-year-old
Robert L. Anderson Admin-
istration Center in South
Venice, which is projected
to require $1.7 million in
renovation.
Later, Cash said there
still are about 200 lots from
the original 1,900 North
Port properties legally
referred to as escheated lots
- that the county owns.
"Of those (200), there
may be an opportunity to
(rate them as) surplus and
sell them," Cash said.
He said the parcels will
be coming under review
"to determine if there are
suggesting Challenger
scale back its plans.
"Staff recommends
the city manager request
that Challenger Baseball
representatives re-exam-
ine" the alternate site,
Lavallee said. In addition,
Lavallee said, "the city
should strongly encour-
age Challenger to reduce
the number of fields
from three to two, which
may eliminate the need
to relocate the county
maintenance facility and
minimize the stormwater
improvements necessary
to support the design."
The property is 5.6 acres,
including a 1.2-acre site


any current or planned
future uses."
"If not, they can be
'surplused' and sold," he
said.
A two-part tax lot auc-
tion in 2006 brought in a
total of $64 million through
online and live bidding.
The proceeds from the sale
were shared, with 55 per-
cent going to North Port
and 45 percent $30 mil-
lion to the county.
Sarasota County com-
missioners also committed
$5 million from lot sales
to help build North Port
schools.
County administra-
tors such as Cash told
commissioners the items
used by Sarasota County
for its maintenance shed
and storage yard. A paved
public access drive runs
along the easternmost
boundary and dead ends
at a small parking area
north of existing ball
fields. It's currently used as
practice fields by Pop War-
ner football and various
organizations, according to
the city.
Challenger organizer
Rich Carroll, who had not
seen Lavallee's memo to
council, said as long as the
property could accommo-
date three fields his orga-
nization would find the
alternate site acceptable.


they presented were for
discussion only, calling
it a precursor to budget
workshops on June 12, 13
and 15. Commissioners,
however, followed each
presentation with pointed
questions and directed staff
to come back with more
information regarding their


respective topics.
Commission Chair
Christine Robinson,
whose District 3 includes
North Port, said she
thinks the commission's
hard line "is a result of
squeezing the dollars."
"We're looking at every
place we can to do that,"


Robinson said.
She pointed to the com-
mission's directing that staff
do more in-depth research
before calling in consul-
tants. Commissioners
also said they want more
options brought to them
instead of a staff opinion,
she said.

this spring.


By KAY T. BANNON
SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER SUN

Garden Elementary School fifth-
graders have green thumbs.
Proof is in the native plant garden
blooming just outside the school's
science lab doors.
The garden was a team effort of the
fifth-graders; their science teacher,
Jeanne Troiano; and master gardener
Lu-Anne Rhoten; with help from area
Boy Scouts; teachers; Principal John
McQueen; parents; master gardener
Carol Burns; and South Venice Garden
Club members Ann Siddons and Kay
Thorpe Bannon.
The new garden is a lovely example
of food and shelter for Florida wildlife
- not to mention the conservation
of water and beautification of school
grounds.
According to Troiano, the science
lab at Garden Elementary tries to offer
as much hands-on experience in all
areas of science as possible.
"Actually, planting a garden is about
as hands-on as it gets, but I was still
concerned that some students would
balk at getting down in the dirt," she
said. "I worried for nothing. Not only
did every student, without excep-
tion, willingly don gloves, dig, spread
mulch and handle the hoses, they did
it with no horsing around and con-
sistently showed great courtesy and
respect for our master gardener and
fearless project leader, Mrs. Lu-Anne
Rhoten. Never have my science periods
flown by so quickly. Students continue
to ask if they can help weed and water,
and show tremendous pride in their
accomplishment.
Troiano said the children took more
interest in classroom discussions.
"Back in the classroom, it was very
easy to lead discussions about why
native plants are important to the
Florida environment, and to extend

their experience to more general
environmental topics," she said.
"We think that most fifth-grade
students should know that flowers
make seeds, plants photosynthesize
and roots bring up water to the leaves
through the stems. But how often do
students get to address all these basic
botany concepts as a real-life experi-
ence? For many, it was the first real
experience they had actually working
with plants, and they loved it. The
garden has become and will continue
to be an outdoor laboratory and class-
room, with lessons to teach for many
years to come."
Charlotte Harbor National Estuary
Program provided a grant that funded
the fifth-graders' study of native
wildlife. Each student participated in
storytelling by Bannon and received a
copy of her book, "How Gimble Gopher
Tortoise Found a New Home." The
book is a plea for habitat preservation
from the animals' perspective.
Hopefully, our fifth-graders will want
to include native Florida plants in
their own yards and provide food and
shelter for butterflies, gopher tor-
toises, birds and other wildlife.
Members of the public are invited
to stop by and check out the blooming
blanket flowers, twin flowers, seaside
goldenrod, coral honeysuckle and
dune sunflowers. The fakahatchee
grass, coontie, beauty berry, muhly
grass and firebush complete the beauty
of the garden. The fifth-graders will
soon be sketching each plant and com-
piling information for the native plant
picture dictionary being compiled by
students.

Bank pledges to collect 5,300 pounds of food


FROM FIFTH THIRD BANK
On the third day of
May Fifth Third Day -
Fifth Third Banks across
the country celebrated
their heritage through
their employees, custom-
ers and communities
they serve.
As part of Fifth Third's
holiday, its Florida
affiliates have created an
alliance to address the
effects of critical issues
plaguing the state: hun-
ger and homelessness.


In South Florida, the
occasion is being marked
with "Fight Hunger. Feed
Dreams." This names
a food drive aimed at
collecting 5,300 pounds
of nonperishable food
items. For the third year,
the effort will benefit The
Salvation Army and its
partner food banks.
"We want to support
the community that
has supported us," said
David Call, president and
CEO of Fifth Third Bank-
South Florida. "Hunger


is a critical need, and
we find it unacceptable
to stand by and let it
happen. Together, we
can make a difference
for thousands of our
neighbors."
Every month, The
Salvation Army provides
an average of up to
18,000 pounds of food
to residents throughout
Collier County alone.
"We've seen the perva-
sive effects of homeless-
ness, and the need for
food in our community


continues to grow," said
Chris Nind, director of
development for The
Salvation Army Naples
Corps.
"We are very thankful
for the partnership with
Fifth Third Bank. The
donated food will directly
help local children and
families. Every can or box
helps make a difference,
not only to fight hunger
but also to provide
hope."
Food collection bins
are set up at all 63 Fifth


Third banking cen-
ters. Bank employees,
customers, local busi-
nesses and community
residents are encouraged
to contribute nonperish-
able food items. Most
needed are canned fruits,
peanut butter, boxed
cereal, canned meats and
beans.
"Fifth Third Bank has
been listening to our
community's concerns
and has developed
high-impact initiatives to
help address the effects


of hunger and home-
lessness," said Karen
Dee, Florida regional
president of Fifth Third
Bank. "All of our Florida
affiliates have united to
form an alliance, and as
part of Fifth Third Day,
we're making that com-
mitment known so that
others have the opportu-
nity to participate."
To donate, stop by your
local Fifth Third banking
center or go to 53.com

Youth concert set


FROM THE WAREHOUSE

The WareHouse of Ven-
ice, a local not-for-profit
youth organization, is
hosting a youth concert
May 11, 5:30 p.m., at
Venice Community
Center, 326 S. Nokomis
Ave., Venice. Tickets are
$7 at the door.
This is the second in
the Lost-N-Found series
of young adult concerts.
The WareHouse "finds"
the talented young per-
formers, provides them a
performance venue and
directs the youth steering
committee to make it all
happen.
On May 11, bands,
trios and soloists will
perform. There will
be classical guitar,
acoustic groups, inter-
pretive dance, stringed


instruments and full-on,
plugged-in "let's have
some fun" music.
"We have some of the
most amazing young
people in the South
County area," said The
WareHouse Executive
Director Linda Banister.
"They came up with
the series title, T-shirt
design and have been
working side-by-side
with our adult volun-
teers to raise funds,
find talent, arrange the
lineup, emcee the event,
select and prep conces-
sion items, setup and
cleanup. The list goes
on. Not once have they
complained."
Since 2003, The Ware-
House has been promot-
ing and planning events
and community oppor-
tunities for middle-, high


school and college-age
young people.
"The community has
gotten behind these
young people with sup-

A Better Understanding of Fibromyalgia


DR. DAN BUSCH, DR. ERENE ROMANSKI
CHIROPRACTOR
Fibromyalgia is a unique condition that is
characterized by fatigue and widespread pain in
muscles, tendons, ligaments, and multiple
tender-to-the-touch spots on the body. While it
was once deemed to be a purely psychological
condition, health professionals are coming to
understand that fibromyalgia involves the
nervous system. Although it is still not entirely
clear what causes this condition, tests


indicate that fibromyalgia patients have overly
sensitive pain receptors in their brains. In
addition, their brains contain high levels of
neurotransmitters that conduct pain signals.
Possible explanations for what makes their
brains more sensitive to pain include spinal
trauma. For some, chiropractic treatment brings
pain relief when undergone in conjunction with
such non-weightbearing activities as swimming.

I GOREN BRIDGE
WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

6 AK A K 10 7 6 3 2 0 A 8 96

What is your opening bid?

A Your 18 HCP all prime 3-4 loser
hand is far too strong to open one
heart what do you intend to rebid
over almost any response you get?
We would avoid this problem by
opening two clubs, and now we can
simply bid hearts over any action by
partner.

Q 2 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:

AAQ7 AKQ652 97247

The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
1F Pass 20 Pass
9
What do you bid now?

A It is tempting to bid game, but
there are too many holdings which
would offer no play. We prefer
moving toward game and the obvious
bid is two spades to see how partner
rebids.

Q 3 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

6 8 7 2 KAK10 7 6 2 0 98 4Q 9


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
10 Pass 1
2V Pass ?
What action do you take?


WEST
Pass


A You have an eight-loser hand and
there is no reason to assume that
partner can cover five of them. The
best you can do is make a mild try for
game by raising to three hearts, at
least setting partner at ease about the
heart suit.

Q 4 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

A976?A8 K734,AQ762


Your right-hand opponent opens the
bidding with one spade. What action
do you take?

A Yes, you have an opening bid but
no, we don't think you have an
overcall. You have a seven-loser
hand and, if you are going anywhere,
partner must have enough to balance
in fourth seat. Pass, and see what
develops.

Q 5 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

AK J 7 4 A 10 8 7 9 5 4 6

Your right-hand opponent opens one
club. What action do you take?

A We don't like a takeout double -
we are not strong enough to double
and then bid a major should partner
respond one diamond or one no
trump. We would content ourselves
with an overcall of one spade and
introduce hearts later if the auction
permits.

Q 6 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

6 107 V 8 5 3 0 Q 93 4 K J 982

The bidding has proceeded:
WEST NORTH EAST SOUTH
1NT Dbl Pass ?
What action do you take?

A Why do you want to do anything?
Partner's double of the notrump
opening shows the equivalent of a
notrump bid. With your six points
and five-card suit, you know West
will find little or nothing in dummy,
so let him struggle. Pass.

Used cellphones give hope to victims


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR

When someone is the
victim of domestic abuse
or rape, help is often just a
phone call away.
On April 26, IBERIABANK
donated nearly 160 used
cellphones it had been
collecting to Safe Place and
Rape Crisis Center Inc. in
Sarasota and DeSoto coun-
ties and to Family Promise
of Manatee County Inc.
The bank began collecting
the phones in February as
part of a community sup-
port program titled "i Gives
Back."


"Some of these cellphones
could literally serve as a life-
line to victims of domestic
violence in our community"
said Jessica Hays, SPARCC
director of community
awareness, in a bank press
release. "We are so apprecia-
tive of IBERIABANK and
its commitment to helping
those in our community
who are affected by domes-
tic violence."
IBERIABANK Retail
Manager Andy Kirkman
said, "The positive feedback
and participation from the
community in this program's
first few months is more
than what we could have


imagined. Everyone was so
giving, and we look forward
to hosting other community-
enriching events and activi-
ties throughout the year.

'Auld Lang Syne'
Bill Millner included this
number in the Venice Concert
Band's final concert of the
season. I like to sit on the side
at the concert. As the band
played, I looked back and


noticed the wheelchairs, walk-
ers and canes against the wall
and alongside members of the
audience.
I listened and thought of all
the jokes we seniors take about
how fast or slow we move or
drive. I smiled thinking "Auld
Lang Syne" is usually associ-
ated with New Year's Eve, now a
Rockin' Eve.
Millner's choice of this music
at the end of the season reminds
us thatVenice seniors never stop
having fun. We don't let small
things like wheelchairs, walkers
and canes keep us at home.
The concert was terrific.

The special person of this
week is Sue Lord, chair of the
Venice Relay For Life.
This nice lady devoted the
year to this event, attending
endless meetings throughout
the state of Florida. She rep-
resented Venice well, always
determined to have our city in
the forefront.
Locally, she planned and
ran meetings to make sure the
weekend event ran smoothly.
Her team loves working with this
well-organized lady. She is one of
those outstanding leaders who
know how to surround them-
selves with the best workers and
then let them shine. Through it
all, she is kind and caring.
Sue Lord is one of the women
who make Venice a great place
to live.

If it's popcorn in the lobby at Venice Regional Medical Center, it

a fundraiser for the volunteers and a way to make waiting a

Running wild

at Disney
any people feel that a visit to Walt Disney World is akin to
running a marathon.
That may be especially true for those traveling with
double and triple strollers, toddlers and all their assorted gear.
For those for whom only a real marathon will do,
Mickey has options beginning with a half marathon at
California's Disneyland Aug. 31-Sept. 2 and the Twilight
Zone Tower of Terror 10-miler weekend at Walt Disney
World Resort Sept. 28-29. The Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon
Weekend at WDW will be Nov. 9 and 10 and then the 20th anniver-
sary of the WDW full marathon for the hard-core runners Jan. 10-13.
While running around the world at my own pace recently, I saw the
special medals for the 20th anniversary run. Wonderful as they are,
I chose to go "Soarin"' instead. To learn more about running at the
World, visit www.rundisney.com.You still have time to get into shape
if you begin today.
Friday morning, instead of running, visit Venice City Hall for the
8 a.m.-noon hurricane preparation seminar. It's free and no matter
how well prepared you think you are, you just might learn that one
more thing that will make the difference when the next big one
comes. The only question is When?
Friday evening, relax at Centennial Park for the free
concert sponsored by Venice MainStreet. It will begin at
7 p.m. at the Gazebo. Bring your own chairs or blankets.
After the concert enjoy a late dinner at one of the many restaurants
downtown, do some window shopping and/or enjoy an
ice cream cone from Bressler's or Kilwin's.

Happy birthday Kasi


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
For its first birthday, Kasi, my favorite chee-
tah at Busch gardens Tampa Bay, received
its first annual checkup with the park's
veterinary staff and in full view of several park
patrons looking through a window into the park's
new animal care center. Also watching was Mtani,
Kasi's best friend.
A year ago Kasi was the size of a kitten,
frolicking with its then-new friend, a yellow lab
named Mtani. At 1, Kasi is larger than Mtani by
almost a head, yet the two remain close, although
larger than the lab, Kasi still obeys Mtani.
The annual check up included a dental
exam and cleaning, x-rays and endoscopy of
its intestinal tract while the cat slept peacefully
under anesthesia. Kasi was awake and back at
his Cheetah Run habitat by early afternoon the
same day.
The cat and canine combination began April
16, 2011, when Kasi was just 8 weeks old. Mtani
was 16 weeks old and the larger of the two at
that time.
Busch animal experts paired the two with the
hope that they would be life-long friends and that


Mtani also would help in the socialization of Kasi
for public appearances. These days, the two live
together full time in the park's Cheetah Run area
when not on the road for public appearances at
schools and on television. Traveling with them
are Busch zoo keepers who talk about the plight
of the cheetah in the wild and the efforts of the
Busch conservation team.
When not on the road for their public appear-
ances, they play together and continue to train
with keepers in their habitat. Both animals like
to run, although Kasi will always be the faster of
the two.
While visiting the not-so-odd couple, take
time for a ride on Cheetah Hunt, the triple-thrust
coaster inspired by Cheetah Run. Its bright green
tracks loop and spiral all over the park, offering
riders great views of all of Busch Gardens but
only if riders keep their eyes wide open.
Call 888-800-5447 or visit www.buschgardens.
com for current hours and prices, including
Florida resident deals. There also are combina-
tion deals that include parking at Busch Gardens
or a combo deal that includes unlimited admis-
sion to both Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and Sea
World Orlando.

Wet 'n Wild Orlando is building new sandcastle-themed water playground


PROVIDED BY WET N WILD

W et'n Wild Orlando is building a new
attraction. Covering an acre and featur-
ing a new sandcastle-themed water
playground, the new Kids' Park is expected to be
the largest of its kind in Florida.


Scheduled to open this summer, this will be
Wet'n Wild's first new attraction in over four
years.
"We are excited to offer a tremendous, new
experience for families and children of all ages,"
said Sr. Vice President and General Manager of
Wet'n Wild Michael Black. "As the water park


recognized for shared thrills and multiperson
attractions, we wanted to add new thrills for the
kids to share with their families."
The new interactive water playground will span
more than 60-feet in height, expand across two
pools (two levels: upper and lower) and have
more than 85,000 gallons of water for guests
to enjoy. The sandcastle playground itself will
encompass more than 15,000 square feet, and
will feature 17 slides and over 160 soakers, jets,
waterfalls and water cannons.
Built on the site of Wet'n Wild's current kids'
park, the new attraction will be a beach-themed
area unto itself with only one entrance/exit. The
area will include dedicated seating set amidst
lush, tropical landscaping.'We've all seen kid's
areas at water parks," Black stated, "but this will
be bigger and unlike any other around. It will be
fun and engaging for everyone, stimulating our
youngest guests and delighting entire families."

Florida Studio Theatre hosts play reading festival


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
wo play readings remain in Florida Studio
Theatre's annual play reading festival.
The festival, which features three new
plays by contemporary American playwrights,
continues at 2 p.m. Saturday and concludes at
7 p.m. May 21.
"American Beauty Shop," by Dana Lynn
Formby opened the series this past Monday.
Saturday's play is John Walch's "In the Book Of"


which was inspired by the book of Ruth in the
Bible, according to a press release from the the-
ater. Its focus is the impact of illegal immigration.
Its main characters are Naomi, an army veteran
and Anisah, an Afghan translator. The setting is a
small town in Mississippi.
A panel discussion, The State of the New
American Play," follows Saturday's reading.
Participating in the panel discussion are: Theatre
Communications Group director Theresa Eyring,
National New Play Network executive director Ja-


son Loewith, Walch and Jack Canfora, playwright
of "Jericho" which is currently running in the Keat-
ing mainstage theater at FST There is no charge
to attend the panel discussion which will begin at
5 p.m. in the Keating.
The May 21 reading will be Matt Schatz 'The
Tallest Building in the World'" With the installation
of girders that make the replacement building at the
World Trade Center site taller than the Empire State
Building, this reading may be particularly timely The
play concerns the design and construction of the


original Twin Towers back in the 1960s.
Some plays featured in past readings have
since received full productions at FST or else-
where. "Black Pearl Sings! was read in the 2009
series and later produced at FST and many other
theaters in the U.S.
Tickets are $10 per person for each of the
readings. Readings will be in the Keating Theatre,
1241 N. Palm Ave., Sarasota.To order tickets,
visit www.floridastudiotheatre.org or call the box
office at 941-366-9000.


Rewriting


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Opening May 18 at the Golden Apple
Dinner Theatre is a comedy about the
rewriting of "Gone With the Wind."
"Moonlight and Magnolias" takes a black and
white but mostly farcical look at the reworking of
Margaret Mitchell's first novel into the Oscar-
winning film of the same name.
Billed as a comedy, the show is about some of
the key players involved in the changes sought
after by David O. Selznick, who hired director Vic-


tor Fleming away from "The Wizard of Oz" and
hired popular screen writer Ben Hecht who had
not yet read the book to do a quick redo of the
story. Fleming won one of the film's eight Os-
cars. Hecht's name was not even on the credits,
although he supposedly was paid $10,000 for his
script doctoring, according to a biography of the
man found at www.lMDbPro.com.
The three men barricade themselves in a room
for five days to create what many today consider
one of the world's great films.
The Golden Apple production is being directed


by Carole Kleinberg, with Chris Caswell, Ryan
Fitts, Alana Opie and B.J. Wilkes in the cast.
May 16 is a preview show with tickets for $25
and Chef Caldwell's summer menu available a la
carte.
Performances are May 18 to July 1, with show
tickets at $27 per person and the summer menu
available at an additional cost.
There will be a special opening night party and
show May 17 to benefit the Professional Learning
and Theatrical Organization, a new 501(c)(3)
non-profit organization with a mission to "produce


professional theatre while providing theatrical
training and community outreach."Tickets for the
fund-raising show are $70 per person and include
a $30 donation to PLATO, valet parking and a
special southern dinner themed to the show, with
cash bar service available.
The theater is at 25 N. Pineapple Ave., in
downtown Sarasota. Parking is available in
back of the theater within the Palm Avenue
Garage.
For reservations, visit www.thegoldenapple.com
or call the box office at 941-366-5454.


Asolo stars shine on Broadway


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
S'onnie & Clyde" had a short run on the
Great White Way last December but it
was long enough to earn a Tony Award
nominations for its leading lady, Laura Osne.
Osne, who originated the role of Bonnie Parker
in La Jolla, two years ago was nominated for
Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading
Role in a Musical for the show's Broadway run.
Jeremy Jordan portrayed Clyde Barrow for the
first time in Sarasota during the Asolo Reper-
tory Company's 2010 season when the show
was almost totally reworked by its creative
team in preparation for Broadway. While he
went to Broadway as Barrow, his nomination is
for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading
Role in a Musical for "Newsies," Disney's latest
hit with music by eight-time Oscar winner Alan
Mencken.
One NewYork critic who panned the show as
a poor remake of the film, which it was not, also
slammed the show's music by Frank Wildhorn
with lyrics by Don Black. Both were nominated for
Best music in a musical for "Bonnie & Clyde."That
critic at least praised Osne and Jordan as well as
the sets byTobin Ost.
Also nominated for this year's Tonys are Jeff
Calhoun who directed "Bonnie & Clyde" in 2010
and Ost, the show's set and costume designer.
Calhoun was nominated for "Best Direction of a


Musical for the Broadway show, "Newsies.' Ost
was nominated for Best Scenic Design of a Musi-
cal for "Newsies,"
Well received by area critics when "Bonnie
& Clyde" ran on the Mertz stage of the FSU
Performing Arts Center, "Bonnie & Clyde" had
mediocre reviews from NewYork critics at best
although most reviewers did praise the stars,
Ost's sets and Calhoun's direction.
Biggest winner of all may be the Asolo Rep,
which also sent "Tale of Two Cities" to Broad-
way in the 2008 season when it ran for about
60 performances before closing and earned
an Outer Critics Circle Award nomination for
Best Musical, three Drama Desk nominations
and a Drama League Award for its lead James
Barbour for Distinguished Performance by a
Leading Actor. "Tale" was directed by Michael
Donald Edwards, the Asolo's artistic director
for the past several years since the retirement
of Howard Millman.
One other Asolo performer earned a Tony
nomination this season. Judy Kaye, who ap-
peared in the Asolo's 2009 production of "Souve-
nir,' received a nomination for Best Performance
by an Actress for a Featured Role in a Musical for
"Nice Work If You Can Get It"'
No wonder this area is referred to as the
Cultural Coast, employs so many people in the
arts and has more theaters per capital than New
York City.

Renee Adorna's life is filled with music


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
From the time she was a teenager, there
was never a time that Renee Adorna's life
was not filled with music.
"I started singing in bands and bars when I
was 16 years old," she said. "Later, when I had
my son, Jordon, he had to grow up with me singing"
That probably wasn't a problem for Jordon, being
backstage at a musical event is great fun. Adorna
said he didn't go to the shows when he was very
young, but later on would go to all the shows that he
was able to attend."Now that he's of age (23), when
he's in town, he comes and rocks out at all our shows"'
Adorna is actually a member of two musical
groups Take Two and Gas House Gorillas.
Take Two has been around for about 13 years
and consists of Adorna and her husband,


Tommy Adorna. "Our duo plays everything from
forties music up to the disco era," she said.
"We play every Friday night in our restaurant
Pelican Alley, in Nokomis."
Shortly after the Adornas began performing as
a duo, they started the Gas House Gorillas band.
An alternative rock band, they put their own twist on
some classics, while also performing some original
music as well. "Gas House Gorillas play on Satur-
days all over, from Venice to Sarasota,' said Adorna.
'This band is more of an adult show than Take Two,
which is meant for anyone from ages 2 to 80"'
Adorna is the lead singer in both of the groups. In
Take Two, Tommy Adorna sings and plays keyboards,
while in Gas House Gorillas he sings and plays the
drums. Adorna says she does contribute more to the
band than her strong vocals."I play a mean tambou-
rine' she said. In addition to the husband and wife, the


band includes Jeri Weaver on bass and Mike Opeka
and Chris Percuoco on guitars.
The music industry has a perceived lifestyle
attached to it, especially when people stay in it
for a length of time, but Adorna says that she
was never tempted by it. "I never got involved with
drugs singing has always been my high,' she
said. "I'm so glad that I have had that, because it's
saved me from going down the wrong road." She
says performing together with her husband has
even proven to be beneficial to their marriage.
"We're going on 13 years of marriage," she said.
"Music is my outlet and keeps me feeling young. I
feel very blessed."
For information about the band and where
they will be appearing next, you can visit their
Facebook page. Just search for the name as
Gas-House-Gorillas.

Carrie Blackwell Hussey effectively man-
ages a career, motherhood, and her
passion for singing. Hussey has been
the executive director of United Way of Charlotte
County for four years, sings with a band, and
is the proud single mom of son Lawton, 8, and
daughter, Sadie, 5.
Hussey was a member of Steve Blackwell and
Friends band for many years before her father,
Steve Blackwell, died. Hussey and her family
created SteveFest, an annual concert series to
honor Blackwell's music. Proceeds are donated


for local high school student scholarships and for
melanoma research.
Still Friends was formed after Blackwell's
death.The band plays original acoustic mu-
sic with a unique and memorable delivery. It
combines songwriting with elements of folk,
rock, bluegrass, jazz and soul music. The band
has become popular with audiences at various
Florida locations, and will perform at the Florida
Folk Festival on Memorial Day weekend in White
Springs. For more information, visit
www.musicbystillfriends.com.
"I feel incredibly lucky that I sang in a band
with my father," Hussey noted. "I was pregnant


with my daughter when my dad passed away, and
I'm very sad that she didn't get to meet him. She
listens to his incredible music, in that way, she
knows him."
Hussey claims that she can't remember a
time when she didn't sing. She recalls her first
performance was at about four years old; she
sang "Baby Face," wore a red dress and a huge
red bow in her hair.
"Some of my best memories are of singing in
the car with my family. Now, I sing with my chil-
dren when they're in the car with me so that they
will have good memories," Hussey stated. "Music
brings out the best in me as a mother."
Hussey's children have been raised around folk
music and festivals. They listen to music at bedtime,
and most of the time listen to our band's CDs which
are familiar and comforting to them,' she said.
Music is a hobby that helps balance out

Carrie Blackwell-Hussey is the lead singer of
Still Friends.

Hussey's life, but her children are her driv-
ing force. She wants to show them that living
with intention and joy is a choice. Her wish is
for them to make that choice for themselves
someday.
Hussey finds her position at United Way
fulfilling. "I started at United Way as the
director of the volunteer center because
volunteering has always been a big part of
my life. It's important to me to give back to the
community where I was born and raised. I love
it here,' she said. "I'm pleased to raise my chil-
dren in a place that supports those that are less
fortunate, and my work allows me to help do that."
Hussey, a resident of Punta Gorda, will spend
Mother's Day with her mother, Margaret (Sue)
Blackwell, family and friends. "My mother is
and always has been my major role model.
She showed me how to do work that matters
and make a difference. I love and respect her
immensely. No matter what we do to celebrate
mom's day; it will be fun," Hussey stated.

Kerri Lynn and husband Gary Harvey are a small musical group with a big sound


BY DEBBIE FLESSER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
As the duo called Gary and Kerri, they
are full-time musicians, playing wher-
ver the wind takes them. We're big and
loud and we're only two people,' said Lynn. "We
like to fill the room with a lot of sound, and we
play a lot of different varieties of music. We call
ourselves the acoustic party show."
Their performances incorporate an array of
classic country, contemporary country and rock
with the two of them taking on multiple respon-
sibilities. "I play a little percussion and the har-
monica,' said Lynn. "He (Harvey) plays acoustic
guitar and sings."
While performing together for the past eight
years, Lynn and Harvey have logged more than
1,400 shows, all while raising two children. "We
have a 20-year-old and an almost 3-year-old,"


Lynn said. "Our oldest son (Trevor Harvey) is a
chef at Farlow's on the Water and we play there."
She says her younger son, Faron, seems to
have the family musical inclinations. "He plays
the harmonica and he's learning how to do the
drums,' she said. "He really likes to strum the
strings on the guitar."
You would think that playing frequently on loca-
tion would be a cause for stress for a mother with
a little one at home, but Lynn says that she has it
all worked out with some assistance. "Luckily,
my mother is completely obsessed with my son,
so she watches him when I'm working,' she said.
"She is really an integral part of the whole thing."
And because she works primarily in the eve-
nings, she feels that the time she is at home with
her young son is time well spent. "I have all day
with him, and he goes to bed at 7 p.m.,' she said.
"The mothers who work day jobs probably get


more sleep at night, so you sacrifice sleep, but in
the long run, you get to see everything."
Lynn said she also does basically 98 percent
of the booking for her band, so can pick and
choose which dates she works. "When you're a
musician, you don't have to work seven days a
week,"' she said.
Though their schedule is jam-packed for the
next couple of months, including the Lock'n' Key
in Englewood at 7 p.m. May 16, Portofino in Port
Charlotte at 6:30 p.m. May 18, Farlow's on the
Water in Englewood at 6:30 p.m. May 19, Nav-A-
Gator in Lake Suzy at 2 p.m. May 20, Portofino in
Port Charlotte at 5 p.m. May 23 and at Danny's
Downtown in Punta Gorda at 7 p.m. May 26.
There is one event in particular that is close to
Lynn's heart. "We're hosting a songwriter's festival
on June 9 on Pine Island at the Low Key Tiki,"
she said. "We will get a variety of songwriters to

introduce any new music they've written. It's a
great way to get their music out there."

Donna Suggs' family are the musical group Heart and Soul


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Being a mom is a special thing, and so is be-
ing in a band. How special must it be, then, to
be in a band with your own daughter?
Donna Suggs knows what that's like. Along
with her husband John, her daughter Michelle
Brown and two other members, they form the
musical group Heart and Soul.
"For a long time, I followed her (Brown's)
career,' she said. "My husband and I worked with
her as roadies for nine years when she was in
a band." About two years ago, Suggs came to
the realization that she could possibly get up on
the stage, too. "It's been such a joy to watch her
grow up and sing,' she said. "I just never thought I
would be on the road singing, too."
She said the transformation from roadie to


performer was pretty smooth. "I think what hap-
pened was two years ago, we were asked to do
two NewYear's Eve shows in two different places,
and they had to split their group,' she said. "We
did this little show and they loved us they were
begging us to come back."
According to Brown, the music that Heart and
Soul plays appeals to a wide variety of audiences.
"The majority of our audience is over 40 or 50,"
she said. "Rock and roll is primarily our thing, but
we also play blues, country, '50s, '60s, '70s and a
little bit of disco."
They refer to themselves as a "musical group"
because they sing to pre-recorded tracks. There
are five people in the group in all, and they all
sing vocals.
Suggs, a full-time employee for the City of
North Port, says that she has shocked even her-


self with her comfort level on the stage. "It's just
fun I feel like I come alive up there on stage
and singing,' she said. "I realize that when we
don't have a weekend booked, I feel kind of lost."
And the group is in high demand.'We can't be-
lieve how booked we are for every weekend and
the next three New Year's Eves,' said Suggs. We
do a lot of private clubs and venues, like the Elks
and the Animal Welfare League at the Charlotte
Cultural Center"'
Their involvement with local charities is some-
thing they're very proud of, and it keeps them


busy as well. "We're really involved with the Elk's
children's charity," said Suggs. "The next event
isn't until February, but we're already rehearsing
and getting everything ready."
When asked what her favorite part about per-
forming with the group was, Suggs didn't hesitate.
"We're having a blast and I get to sing duets
with Michelle,' she said. "She's just an awesome
daughter."

Heather Frank: The Gator Creek Band is a family affair


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Heather Eastes Frank is finding balanc-
ing motherhood and career much easier
these days, since her son Josh is now 18.
Besides, performing with the Gator Creek Band is
still very much a family affair.
"My husband plays guitar and sings vocals
and my brother plays acoustic rhythm guitar and
sings vocals," said Heather, "and the drummer (John
Saputo) is my brother's best friend"' Heather, who
sings vocals for the band, said that about 10 years
ago was when she first met her husband, Michael.
"He was already in a band," she said. "I joined
and we decided to bring my brother Curtis


(Eastes) in." She said they first began practicing
in the duplex she was living in at the time, with
the blessing of her very understanding neighbors.
Heather maintains a full-time job while singing
with the band, even though the schedule can
sometimes get a little crowded.
"We play all over the place anywhere and
everywhere," she said. "We mostly play private
parties, but we also play at the Venice Yacht Club
and Hoosiers."
Though he is not in the Gator Creek Band,
Heather said her son Josh, who works at
Sharky's, does have musical talent. "He can
really sing, and when we (she and Michael) got
married, he got up and sang a karaoke song," she


said. "It was cute. He can also play the drums."
The Gator Creek Band website states that
their music "consists of predominately contem-
porary country music mixed with a variety of
standard dance and classic rock tunes."
Heather says that what makes their band so
special can probably be attributed to the close-
ness of its members. "I like the fact that we're
family-oriented and our harmonies are over the
top good," she said. "Our vocals just overpower
everything else"
For the most part, the band's schedule
includes private parties for weddings, or clubs like
the Rotunda Elks, the Sertoma Club, the Venice
Yacht Club and the Eagles Club in Englewood.


Heather Eastes Frank sings for the Gator Creek Band.
They are scheduled to play at the Hoosier Bar in
Englewood on Saturday and on June 2. On Sept.
14 they will be playing at the Friday Night Concert
Series in the Gazebo on Venice Island.

Hermitage Fellow Judy Klevins to present reading of poetry, prose


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Community presentations by residents at the
Hermitage Artist Retreat on Manasota Key
are a bonus for Cultural Coast residents.
At 10:15 a.m. today, Hermitage author and Fellow
Judy Klevins will present a reading of poetry and
prose at the Elsie Quirk Library in Englewood.
Admission is free and all who attend will be
given a copy of Kelvins book, "Can You Come


Here Where I Am? The Poetry and Prose of
Seven Breast Cancer Survivors."
"As a teaching artist, Judy has the skills to
present intimate and personal information in a
caring and nurturing way," Hermitage executive
director Bruce Rodgers said in a press release
about the program. "We expect this presenta-
tion to leave a big impression."
Klevins, a Kennedy Center Teaching Artist
and consultant with educational and cultural


institutions, is one of the book's authors.
She will lead a discussion after her presen-
tation.
The Hermitage brings artists, writers and
musicians from all over the world to work
on special projects for up to six weeks at its
8.5-acre beachfront retreat on Manasota Key.
Since the first resident, Malcomb Robertson
of Scotland, lived there in 2003, each resident
is asked to make two community contribu-


tions such as Klevins' reading or a concert or
even donation of a piece of work. Hermitage
residents do not apply for their stays but are
selected by a distinguished panel of people in
the fields of music, art and writing, including
theater.
The library is located at 100 W. Dearborn St.
For more information about the Hermitage and
its programs, call 941-475-2098 or visit
www.hermitageartistretreat.org.

Knitters help those in need


BY CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Elizabeth (B.J.) Simmons is a proud organiz-
er of the Special Knitting Forces of Engle-
wood. B.J. and 15-20 knitters meet weekly
to knit items for people living in disaster-stricken
areas of Appalachia.
Organized 10 years ago, the Englewood group
at first decided to knit warm hats, gloves and
sweaters for people living in war-torn Afghani-
stan. However, their efforts were short lived
because of obstacles beyond their control -
unreliable methods of distribution. Undaunted,
they searched for other worthy aid recipients
and discovered Appalachian Outreach.
West Virginians Rose Hart and Diane
Reineke organized Appalachian Outreach in
2001 because charities did not exist or were
too small to meet the needs of people living
in vast areas that had been devastated by the
prevalence of floods and mine disasters.
Their motto is: "A little means a lot. How much
do you really need? What can you share with
those who have serious unmet needs?" Hart
and Reineke established warehouses in rural
areas of West Virginia. In 2011, 577 volunteers
worked 5,457 hours to help 14,763 families.
They hope to double that amount in 2012, ac-
cording to their website: www.appalachianout-
reaching.org.
A complete list of items can be found on the
website, but basic necessities such as furniture,
house wares, appliances, bedding, clothing, non
perishables, baby care items, school supplies
and toys are welcomed.
The Englewood knitters meet from 1 p.m.
to 3 p.m. Wednesday at St. David's Episcopal
Church, 401 S. Broadway, Englewood.
Venice resident, Sally Sentiff, joined the group
three years ago after reading about them in the

newspaper. Her family was grown, and she was

Beth Sarles lived in West Virginia while
attending college. She saw first hand how
people struggled to survive. Today, the situa-
tion appears unchanged. Some, isolated and
discouraged, give up completely Women,
children, and elderly citizens are especially
vulnerable and can't find ways to rise above

Food Is Love Eatery


BY JON BAUMANN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Tucked in a corner of the Old Englewood
Village Plaza at the intersection of
E. Dearborn and North Indiana streets in
Englewood is a restaurant that locals have come
to love, where regulars are on a first-name basis
and barbeque is king.
The Food Is Love Eatery opened in October,
2005, out of what was a catering business.
Current owners Gary and Leah McCallister
took over the restaurant in December of 2009,
changing very little of the award-winning
eatery, recipient of numerous Englewood Sun
newspaper's The Best of Englewood Readers'
Choice Awards.
'We've always wanted to own a restaurant. My
husband liked barbeque and I thought it would be
fun to do something with quiche,' explained Leah.
"We thought it was a perfect fit for us because it
was just what we wanted to do."
Featuring different all-you-can-eat specials
each night, Gary slow smokes the ribs, chicken
and pork in a commercial cooker holding up to
500 pounds of meat.
Barbeque sauces come in a traditional
red, spicy red, mustard or a vinegar-based sauce.
Each sauce is prepared by Chef Jim Namack,


who has been with the eatery for over five
years.
The lunch menu includes salads, hot and cold
sandwiches, wraps and quiche of the day. Six
different types of beer and five types of wine are
available with meals.
The eatery has an extensive catering menu,
offering business lunches, plated dinner options,
upscale buffet choices, breakfast items and
hors d'oeuvres.
"Because of the size of our kitchen, I don't take
anything over a hundred people, just because we
can't do it. Every once in a blue moon, I'll do 150
if they just want meat," Leah explained.
The Eatery has handled beach wedding recep-
tions, business conferences and neighborhood
community event catering as part of the services
they offer Englewood.
Take out orders are also available.
For more information, call 941-473-9439 or
visit www.foodislove.net.
Food is Love Eatery is located at 41 N. Indiana
Ave., Englewood and is open for breakfast and
lunch from 8 a.m to 2 p.m daily and from 4 p.m.
to 9 p.m. Thursday through Saturday for dinner.
Breakfast is served until 11:30 a.m. Monday
through Friday and all day on Saturday and
Sunday.

It's time to have some bowling party fun
to get away from the hot summer sun.
Bowland, located at 3192 Harbor Blvd.,
Port Charlotte, has entertainment for everyone
including serious bowlers, families and those
who want a social activity with others, all in a fun
atmosphere.
For youngsters from Tuesday through Aug. 15,
Bowland begins its' third year of Kids Bowl Free,
a national program where children under 15
years of age can bowl two free games every day
throughout the dates above.
To make it a true family experience, adults will
be able to purchase a family pass for $24.95 al-
lowing as many as four adults to bowl right along
side their children.To register, go to kidsbowlfree.
com/bowland for all the details of this national
event, provided for the families of Port Charlotte
and surrounding communities.
That's not the only special that Bowland offers.
There's unlimited bowling nights for $8 a bowler,
called Crazy 8s bowling, extreme glow bowl
nights, when the lights go down and the music
gets turned up, and Sunday Family Fun Nights.
"A family of four can bowl for two hours, shoes
included, for $27,' explained Mary McDonald,
manager of Bowland since 2008. "Add a large
pizza and soda for $10 more."
McDonald has been with the organization for
32 years. In that time, the greatest innovation
in bowling was in how the games are scored.
"We went from hand scoring to automated
scoring, which was a big transition for bowlers,"
McDonald added. As part of the overall strong

Trattoria Limoncello


BY BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
As you're headed out of Punta Gorda,
past Jones Loop Road headed south on
Tamiami Trail, you see a restaurant that
makes you want to stay in the area awhile lon-
ger. The salmon-pink building with white trim
gleams in the Florida sunshine. And even as
the season winds down, Trattoria Limoncello's
parking lot is packed. Numerous customers
walking out with pizza boxes make you wonder
if you've stumbled upon an elaborate pizzeria.
It's true: pizza is a big part of the restaurant's
lunch business. But customers also love the
Italian favorites that are popular at lunch and
dinner lasagna, eggplant parmesan, seafood
and more according to Gisella lebba, who
owns the restaurant along with her husband,
Gino.
Gisella, Gino and their son, Lorenzo, do all


the cooking, using recipes that were handed
down on both sides of the family. Gino was born
in Benevento, Italy, and Gisella was born on the
Isle of Capri.They met in NewYork and found
that they shared a love of cooking authentic,
homemade food. Many of their dishes are prepared
with their signature limoncello sauce, made with
Limoncello liqueur.
"Another favorite is tripe,' said Gisella. "People
call and ask if we have any, and order it ahead of
time. I make a big batch and, if I can, I vacuum
pack it so when someone calls I have it for them.
It takes all day to cook it, so I make a huge batch
at one time"
All of their meals are cooked to order, said
Gisella. "It takes a little more time, but it's worth
itf'With the family-friendly atmosphere, it's easy
to relax and anticipated the meal to come.
The family has a long history of cooking for
others. In 1968, Gino and Gisella opened their


first restaurant in Westchester, New York. For
awhile they served pizza only.Then, in 1974,
they expanded to a restaurant similar in size to
Trattoria Limoncello.
They began visiting the Punta Gorda area
in 1980 and moved here permanently in 1998.
They tried retirement but found it boring. So, in
2004, they were almost ready to open their new
restaurant when Hurricane Charley hit. It took
another two years to have repairs made, resubmit
the plans and receive the necessary approvals.
Finally, in November of 2006, Trattoria Limoncello
opened to the public.
The restaurant often hosts birthday parties,
anniversaries and other celebrations. Everything
at the restaurant can be ordered as take-out, too.
While they don't offer catering, customers can
order trays of food, starting with half a tray size.
"We prepare the trays and customers come
and pick them up," Gisella explained. 'Trays of

Flair in Sunday's Sun for a complete list of movies in theaters.


Hot summer movies:
BY RAFER GUZMAN
NEWSDAY
ven before "Marvel's The Avengers" landed
in U.S. theaters, it was shaping up as a
megahit, selling out 1,000 advance show-
times across the country through Fandango.com
and racking up $185 million overseas. It's clearly
this season's movie to beat.
But aside from years of fanboy anticipation,
what makes "The Avengers" seem like such a per-
fect summer movie? For starters, there's the cast,
filled with brand names like Downey, Johansson
and Jackson. It has also has a big budget and
loads of special effects. But the main ingredient is
harder to identify, an ability to please crowds with
a sense of excitement, action and fun.That's de-
fined the summer movie for decades, even before
Hollywood put the term into common usage.
Here are five of the greatest summer movies,
from the golden age of cinema to the current era
of superhero mania:
"The Wizard of Oz" (Aug. 25, 1939):Though not a
box-office gorilla at the time, this fantasy classic set
the template for the "Harry Potter" summer spectacu-
lars: lavish effects, a memorable supporting cast and
a story line that entranced kids and adults alike.

"Jaws" (June 20, 1975): Steven Spielberg's epic
fish tale launched the blockbuster era (though
George Lucas' "Star Wars" helped) by covering
nearly every genre: horror, adventure, action,
drama. Its one-word, high-concept premise -
"Shark!"- remains a Hollywood gold standard.
"Raiders of the Lost Ark" (June 12, 1981):
Everything old seemed new again when this
Spielberg-Lucas homage to the matinees of the
1930s became a massive hit. Actually, everything
old is still new: Today's superhero movies are also
based on characters from 50 years ago.
"Independence Day" (July 2, 1996): Roland
Emmerich nearly went "Jaws" one better with this
sci-fi-invasion-disaster flick that grossed $306
million. It also set new rules for what the summer
blockbuster should be: big, loud, effects-driven
and filled with scenes of famous American cities
being destroyed.
"The Dark Knight" (July 18, 2008): Christopher
Nolan's second "Batman" film was the year's top
grosser, with $533 million, but it's a summer-mov-
ie oddity: dark, violent and artfully made, with an
Oscar-winning performance from Heath Ledger
as the Joker. The third and final chapter, "The
Dark Knight Rises," arrives in theaters July 20.

Dark Shadows (PG-13)
In 18th-century Maine, Barnabas Collins (Johnny
Depp) presides over the town of Collinsport. A
rich and powerful playboy, Barnabas seals his
own doom when he breaks the heart of a witch
named Angelique (Eva Green). Angelique turns
Barnabas into a vampire and buries him alive.
Two centuries later, Barnabas escapes from his
tomb and finds 1972 Collinsport a very different
place. His once-grand estate has fallen into ruin,
and the dysfunctional remnants of his family
have fared little better.

R" Medicare Supplement Plans
SJ insured by UnitedHealthcare Insurance Company

Why do so many people have AARP" Medicare Supplement Insurance, insured by UnitedHealthcare Insurance
Company(UnitedHealthcare)? It could be the competitively priced plans. Or maybe the fact the AARP and
UnitedHealthcare names are recognized nationally. Here are a few more reasons why a medicare supplement plan
could meet your needs:
Save up to thousands of dollars per year in out-of-pocket medical expenses
Have the flexibility to visit any doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare patients
Enjoy the freedom to see specialists without referrals

Most cases of ulcerative

colitis are treatable


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
Please do an article on
ulcerative colitis. My
grandson, 17, has been di-
agnosed with it. What does
this do for his future? Will
he be able to have a fam-
ily? My daughter is very
upset by this, and so am I.
He had been a promising
ballplayer. Will he be able
to play again? N.K.
ANSWER: Ulcerative
colitis is one of the two
inflammatory bowel dis-
eases. The other is Crohn's
disease. UC often makes
its appearance between
the ages of 20 and 40 and
has another, but smaller
rise, in people in their 60s.
The ulcers of ulcerative
colitis are open sores on
the surface of the colon.
Such ulcers appear only in
the colon, the large intes-
tine. With Crohn's disease,
deep ulcerations appear
anywhere in the digestive
tract.
What causes UC to ap-
pear is not a settled ques-
tion. Genes have a definite
influence. The immune
system is involved in a way
that is harmful to the co-
lon. And it's theorized that
some unknown environ-
mental trigger is involved.
The signs and symp-
toms of UC depend on
where in the colon the
ulcers have developed
and on the number of
those ulcers. Diarrhea,
often containing blood,
and crampy abdominal
pain are the cardinal signs.
A colonoscopy provides
critical information on the
number of ulcers and their
location.
Your grandson, if
he's like most other UC
patients, can choose
whatever career in life that
he wishes. Professional
football players have suf-
fered from the illness but
continued to be active in
their sport. He can have a
family.
The number of medi-
cines now available for this
illness is large. I'll men-
tion only a few. When the
disease acts up, drugs from
the cortisone family usu-
ally can bring the illness
under control. Prednisone
is the one most often pre-
scribed. Newer medicines,
called biologicals, can con-
trol the immune attack on
the colon and are the latest
additions to treatment.
Infliximab is one example.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
For at least five months
I have suffered from jaw
pain. Chewing was ago-
nizing. I could open my
mouth only a little bit.
A friend suggested I see
her neurologist whom she
was currently seeing. It
ooo

sounded odd to me that I
should see a neurologist,
but I made an appoint-
ment all the same. He or-
dered a brain scan, which
showed I had a pituitary
tumor. The neurologist
turned me over to an en-
docrinologist who worked
me up and then passed me
on to a neurosurgeon. My
diagnosis was acromeg-
aly. Since the tumor was
removed, I am 95 percent
better and expect to be
100 percent shortly. A.L.
ANSWER: Acromegaly
isn't a common illness. It
comes from a tumor of the
pituitary gland, the gland
located at the base of the
brain. The pituitary gland
is a very busy gland. One
of its hormones is growth
hormone. In an adult, an
excess of growth hormone
doesn't make the person
taller. It does, however,
thicken bones and lead to
head enlargement and en-
largement of other bones.
It often brings on arthritis,
too. Your jaw problem
came about from arthritis
of the jaw joint.
Thanks for telling us
your story. You've made
many other people aware
of a condition not often
discussed.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
My last mammogram
showed calcificationss." My
doctor hasn't said much
about it to me. I asked what
the significance of calcifi-
cations is. He said that he
wanted to discuss this with
the doctor who interpreted
the mammograms.
Should I be doing
anything to hurry things
along? -A.E
ANSWER: Your doctor has
taken the correct approach
to a problem that often is
seen in mammograms -
calcifications. The body
puts down small amounts
of calcium for a number of
reasons. It's one way it has
of patching up slight inju-
ries or containing infections.
Hurry things along only if
the doctor is taking months
to reply.
The significance of
calcifications lies in their
extent, their size, their
location in the breast and
the pattern they make. If
there's even a slight doubt
about cancer, the doctor
will recommend that you
have a biopsy.

Getting the drop on tuna ALLAR


Dear Heloise: Many
years ago, when my
children were young, your
mother printed a recipe
using tuna. I remember
dropping the tuna in oil. I
can't find the recipe, and
I think my grandchildren
would like it. Thank you.
- A Faithful Reader, via
email
Dear Reader: Thank
you for writing. My
mother, the original He-
loise (1919-1977), made
these tasty treats using
canned salmon. She did
suggest that if you're on
a tight budget, you can
substitute tuna. Here's
the recipe for Heloise's
Salmonettes. They are
easy to make and taste
great, too!
You need the following:
1 can of salmon or tuna
(14 ounces)
% cup reserved liquid
from the salmon or tuna
1 egg, lightly beaten
12 cup flour
Pepper (optional, to
taste)
1 heaping teaspoon
baking powder
Fill a deep fryer or
skillet half-full of oil and
preheat while assembling
the salmonettes.
Drain all but 1/cup of
the liquid off the canned
fish and set aside. Place
fish in a mixing bowl and
break apart with a fork. A
little at a time, add egg,
flour and pepper. Mix well
but do not overmix.
Add the baking powder
to the reserved liquid and
beat with a whisk or fork
until frothy. Immediately
add it to the fish mixture


Hints from Heloise

and stir to blend do not
let it sit after mixing.
Drop the mixture off
iced-tea spoons into the
hot oil. Keep an eye on
them, because it won't
take long until they are
browned. Drain on a pa-
per towel and then serve!
Unfortunately, this is a
recipe that you cannot
make ahead of time and
then cook. You have to fry
them as soon as you mix
them. Enjoy! Heloise

Celery leaves
Dear Readers: I love
celery stuffed with peanut
butter or cream cheese
as a snack. It also is an
ingredient in numerous
recipes. However, most
folks cut off the leaves
and throw them away!
Stop! Don't!
The leaves contain the
most vitamin C, calcium
and potassium of the
entire plant. The leaves
can be used like parsley
when seasoning dishes.
They also can be mixed
with other greens to make
salad. So, don't toss those
leaves. Use within a day
or two, because they won't
keep for long! Heloise

Attention, chocolate lovers:

prepare to start swooning


DEAR ABBY: I have
heard that your dessert
recipes are fabulous and
I'd like to have them. I
saw a column in which
you mentioned your
cookbooklets. I hope
I'm correct about this,
because I'd be interested
in getting them. I have
your booklet of poems
and essays, which I have
read and enjoyed many
times.
Would you print your
personal favorite des-
sert recipe and let me
know how to get your
cookbooklets? Warmest
wishes to you, Abby, and
thank you for all your
columns. ANITA B. IN
NEW JERSEY
DEAR ANITA: You are
welcome. It's hard for
me to choose just one
recipe because I have a
notorious sweet tooth,
and my cookbooklets
contain more than a
few that I have enjoyed
many times. However,
because you asked for
my personal favorite, it
would be one that not
only I have enjoyed, but
also one I have made
for friends as gifts -
Regency Brownies With
Chocolate Frosting.
(Because the recipe
yields 4 1/2 dozen, I
confess I usually keep
the "extra" six to munch
on myself.)

BROWNIES
1 cup butter (2 sticks)
4 ounces bittersweet
chocolate
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups chopped wal-
nuts
1 teaspoon vanilla

FROSTING
1 cup heavy cream
8 ounces bitter-
sweet chocolate, finely
chopped

Preheat oven to 350
degrees.

18-by-12-by-2 (or 1)-inch
baking pan with baking
parchment paper and

spray.
In the top of a double


Dear Abby

boiler, over medium
hear, melt butter and
4 ounces chocolate.
Reserve.
In a large bowl, beat
sugar and eggs until
fluffy. Add flour and salt,
mixing well. Add choco-
late mixture, blending
thoroughly. Stir in nuts
and vanilla.
Pour into prepared
baking pan. (Batter
should be about 1/2 inch
thick, not more.) Bake
for 35 to 40 minutes, or
until top is crisp and
toothpick inserted in
center comes out clean.
Cool before pouring
frosting over the top.
For the frosting: Bring
cream to a boil, stir-
ring constantly. Place
chopped chocolate in
a medium bowl; pour
boiling cream over the
chocolate and stir to
blend well. Spread thin
layer of warm frosting
over top of brownies in
pan. When cool, cut into
2-inch squares.
My cookbooklet set
contains not only many
easy-to- prepare crowd-
pleasing recipes, but
also tips on entertain-
ing. It can be ordered
by sending your name
and address, plus check
or money order for $14
(U.S. funds) to: Dear

Shipping and handling
are included in the
price. If you're a serious
chocolate lover, these
brownies will make your
toes curl, and that's a
promise. With summer
coming and families
gathering for the holi-
days, now's the time to
dust off your favorite
picnic and barbecue
recipes. My dessert reci-
pes have started many a
family tradition.

Opening lead: Three of 6

There is considerable divergence
of opinion as to whether a defender's
opening lead against a no trump
contract should show count how
many cards opener holds in the suit
led or attitude whether the
leader would like the suit returned.
Here is a deal where count has a
distinct advantage.
North-South were playing five-
card majors, hence the opening one
diamond bid rather than one heart.
South's jump to two no trump was a
game force and North had no reason


to look for anything beyond three no
trump.
East-West were using that old
stalwart, fourth best on opening lead.
When partner led the three of spades,
East, who was looking at the deuce in
the suit, knew West held exactly four
cards in the suit and, hence, declarer
had three. If declarer's spades were
headed by the queen, it was a sure
stopper. To cast doubt on the location
of the high spades, East rose with the
ace and returned the deuce.
That induced declarer to conclude
that West's spades were headed by
the king, so South finessed the ten.
West won with the jack and
continued with spades, and the
defenders scored four spade tricks
and the ace of clubs- down one.
If the defenders were using attitude
leads, this simple defense would not
have been available. The lead of the
higher spade would mark East with
the ace-king. If the lead were a low
spade, East could not afford to
underlead the high spade at trick two
in case South started with a
doubleton queen. South would then
score a spade trick to which he is not
entitled and with it a game that
could have been defeated.
