In January, general manager Jonathan Davis welcomed customers to the
restaurant at Snook Haven Park. He's now trying to take over the contract for
the struggling restaurant.



Chef hopes to keep



Snook Haven open


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Sarasota County last week
took steps to terminate its con-
tract with the vendor operating
Snook Haven, a popular Venice
tourist attraction, for missing
rent payments.
Two months ago Sunrise
Sunset Concessions of Snook
Haven asked for more time
to pay more than $42,000 in
rent dating to May 2011, but
when the March 2012 payment
date came and went with
no payment, county parks
officials sent a letter to Sunrise
notifying it of their intent to
terminate the contract.
The issue will come before
county commissioners in June.
According to Carolyn Brown,
general manager of Sarasota
County Parks and Recreation,
Snook Haven will likely close
down for a period while the
county advertises for a new
concessionaire.
"The period of June-Septem-
ber is historically off season
and a slow time," Brown said.
"In addition, the entertain-
ment and boat tours tradition-
ally stop by the end of May,
so the impact to restaurant
patrons should be minimal."
Brown said the boat ramp
and park area will remain open
to the public.


"We will use this time con-
structively, making any needed
repairs to the facility or sur-
rounding park area to prepare
for a fresh start of the future,"
Brown wrote in a memo to
County Administrator Randall
Reid on Friday.
Snook Haven's General Man-
ager Jonathan Davis, a chef
for 35 years who trained with
famed chef Wolfgang Puck, is
disappointed in the news but
sees an opportunity. He put
out a call for financial backers.
"It looks like these guys are
pulling out. I'm trying to get it
myself," Davis said.
Sunrise's managing mem-
bers Kenneth Keefe and
Leonard Kronen "are working
on when they will pull out or
turn it over to me," he said. "I
will be taking over this debt, if
I have financial backers. In a
couple of days I will know a lot
more."
Until then, the restaurant
remains open, but evening
entertainment has been
canceled.
The Gulf Coast Banjo Society
will continue its Thursday
entertainment for two more
weeks, and Sunday biker day
will go on, Davis said.
"It's unfortunate," Davis said.
"I just started the Saturday and

Three locals in sex sting

Sarasota County Sheriff Tom Knight, center, speaks during a press conference Monday. He was joined by Chief Assis-
tant State Attorney Ed Brodsky of the 12th Judicial Circuit, left, Kevin Vespia, North Port police chief, and several
other law enforcement officials to announce 31 arrests of suspected online predators were made in Operation

County cracks down on child sex solicitation


By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER

The sound of men crying
like babies was welcomed by
Sarasota County Sheriff Tom
Knight after 31 individuals
were nabbed in a six-day sting
targeting online child sex
predators.
"Did you hear some of them
screaming and crying like
babies?" Knight said Monday
during a press conference to
announce the arrests yielded
in Operation Intercept, which
was designed to catch those
soliciting sex with children as
young as 8. "Can you imagine
if it weren't us on the other
end of the computer and it
was a real child who met these
strangers and then was sexu-
ally violated?"
Among the 31 arrested on
the charges of seducing or
soliciting a child to commit
sex acts and traveling to solicit
was Venice resident Rex A.
Vallance, of the 500 block
Hazelwood Road.
Vallance, 50, allegedly
thought he was chatting with
a 15-year-old boy online and
by cellphone.
According to a sheriff's
office report, on May 9,


VALLANCE


Vallance went to an undis-
closed location for the
purpose of providing oral sex
to the child and his stepfather.
After traveling to the location
in Sarasota County, Smith was
greeted and then arrested
- by members of the Florida
Department of Law Enforce-
ment and the sheriff's office.
The same thing happened
to Manuel E. Lopez-Matute,
23, of the 300 block. Venice
Ave., after he allegedly solic-
ited a 13-year-old. Lopez-
Matute allegedly communi-
cated over the Internet and
cellphone with the stepfather
for the purpose of engaging in
sex with the minor.
Scott M. Evans, 32, 1000
block Columbine Road, was
arrested for soliciting a parent
to commit sex acts on a
child. He was using an email
in the name of Mark Tayler.
According to a police report,


Evans spoke
with what
he believed
was the legal
guardian of a
13-year-old,
then traveled
to an undis-
EVANS closed location
to have sex,
where he was arrested. Police
found a semi-automatic pistol
in his waistband.
Police also arrested 45-year-
old Shawn Gray, a lieutenant
commander Judge Advocate
General attorney with the U.S.
Coast Guard in Miami.
A man on Longboat Key
allegedly solicited a parent
saying he always wanted
to "try a preteen." He also
promised to bring pills when
he met the girl.
Venice Police Chief Tom
McNulty called the operation
a success that involved "a lot"
of officers.
"It's disturbing that it was
successful," McNulty said.
"Had it not been police offi-
cers they were chatting with,
we could have had multiple
children victimized."
He wasn't surprised the

STING 15


By CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Jon Thaxton said Tues-
day he will not do anything
regarding his political future
until Monday.
Thaxton, 54, is prevented
from running for a fourth
term to the District 5 commis-
sion seat because of a Florida
Supreme Court opinion
released last week upholding a
two-term county commission
limit in Sarasota County. The
court said its opinion regard-
ing Sarasota County was
made to be consistent with
the court's decision to uphold


term limits in a
lawsuit involv-
ing Broward
County.
The state
Supreme
Court reversed
a permanent
THAXTON injunction
against Sara-
sota County barring enforce-
ment of term limits that
had been imposed by 12th
Circuit Judge Deno Econo-
mou, who in 2005 ruled term
limits unconstitutional and
unenforceable in Sarasota
County.
In 1998, voters overwhelm-
ingly approved a charter


amendment that limits
Sarasota County commission-
ers to two terms.
A recent "e-blast" by Jon
Susce, a member of the
Sarasota-based Tempo
News editorial board, stated
that "according to reliable
sources," Thaxton will oppose
three-term Supervisor of
Elections Kathy Dent, a fellow
Republican. The e-blast also
stated Thaxton will receive
support from members of the
local Sarasota County Demo-
cratic Party.
Thaxton said Tuesday that
he will not comment on

NEWS EDITOR

The public is invited to
participate in Community
Data 2.1, a half-day workshop
on innovative approaches to
using community data to make
community decisions.
Friday morning at Venice
City Hall the experts are mak-
ing it easy for citizens to give
input and take a glimpse into
where the city they live in is
headed.
How is the environment
doing in Venice and Sarasota
County? Indicators like
how many seagrass beds
exist the harbingers of sea


life how many turtle eggs
hatched or how many eagle
nests there are compared to
a few years or a decade ago,
speak volumes about our
local shores, water quality and
parks.
So does the absentee rate
in our schools, population
trends, the student graduation
rate and reading achievement
rates. What is the education
funding picture and how is it
affecting our local schools?
How about the housing
stock, tourist spending,
domestic violence and violent
crimes, homelessness, traffic

MPO to fund downtown mobility study


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Michael Howe, director
of the Sarasota/Manatee
Metropolitan Planning
Organization, announced
recently the MPO intends
to set aside nearly a
quarter million dollars
to conduct a mobility
and wayfinding study for
downtown Venice.
The announcement is
good news for the city,
and timely.
The city has been
struggling with a parking
shortage during season,
and backed-up traffic


near three bridges leading
onto the island, all while
trying to make the city
more bicycle friendly by
adding bike paths and
making room for street-
legal golf cars.
"The study is designed
to find the best uses
for the infrastructure
we have in this case,
downtown Venice," said
city spokeswoman Pam
Johnson. "They will look
at ingress and egress, how
to best accommodate,
cars, buses, bicycles, and
pedestrians. They want
to look at parking. The
big thing is wayfinding


- looking at signs to help
get people where they
want to go.
The Economic Devel-
opment Advisory Board
recently recommended
the city conduct such a
study.
Howe said the funds will
be available July 1. The
MPO will write a check to
the city, Howe said, giving
it the ability to manage
the project, which will
likely be contracted out.
The Venice Downtown
Mobility Study will be
conducted according to
city standards, Howe said.
"It's something we want


them to be comfortable
with ... for the com-
munity to be engaged in.
That's the MPO's intent,"
Howe said.
"That's real money
and it will happen. You
already have a beautiful
downtown area. If this
can make it even better,
that's a wonderful thing."
City officials are excited
about the project, which
was approved in 2007
when former council
member Vicki Noreen
(Taylor) first requested
the funds but not pro-
grammed for lack of
funding.


City to resume fire inspections


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

The city of Venice has
come up with a way to
continue performing fire
inspections.
The task was assumed
by former Fire Chief John
Reed until he retired last
month, but Reed said he
was only able to perform
about 10 percent of the
work after several key
positions were eliminated
from the FY2012 budget.
Among the positions were
deputy chief, fire marshal
and inspector.
Department heads
recently came up with a
short-term solution to


perform fire inspections,
which had ceased with
Reed's retirement.
The plan is to utilize
existing staff by splitting
duties between firemed-
ics certified to perform
fire inspections and
planning department
staff who perform general
building inspections.
Interim Fire Chief Steve
Carvey said two firemed-
ics are state-certified
inspectors who will work
on their days off at
straight time (no over-
time) to "keep things mov-
ing forward" with inspec-
tions for business and
commercial plan reviews,
including life-safety


inspections and permits
required for final certifi-
cates of occupancy, as well
as annual inspections.
The planning and
building department will
review the paperwork,
ensuring appropriate
fees are charged and
documented.
The city is required
by law to provide fire
inspections.
"This cross-pollination
of tasks and personnel is
designed to add efficiency
to the review process while
adding convenience to
customers," said City Man-
ager Ed Lavallee in a May 7
memo to city council.
"It will also allow the

sharing of the function's
costs between the build-
ing department and fire
department."
Lavallee said the plan,
which went into effect
last week, allowed the city
to resume fire inspections
for local businesses.
The alternative was
to outsource the task to
the city of North Port or
another business.
Based on how it goes,
Lavallee said he will
determine whether to
recommend the city
continue to perform fire
inspections in-house or
"alter the design" for the
FY2013 budget.

"I think one of the
tough things to do is
consider the interests of
all people," Johnson, "our
businesses that are trying
to accommodate clients
and other businesses who
need to use our roads,
but also our residents
who want to get on and
off the island, and even
our government, because
we taxpayers are paying
for that congestion and
all the expensive fuel and
not getting anywhere.


With so many concerns,
it makes it especially
difficult.
"A downtown traffic
mobility study is the best
way to look at what we
have, or if there are better
ways to improve it."
Mobility studies take
about six months to
complete. The city is in
the process of developing
a scope of work adver-
tisement to go out for
bids.

Free boating safety checks


By LARRY EVANS
CORRESPONDENT
Boaters can get a free
safety check Saturday
morning at three local
boat launches.
Courtesy inspections
will be offered from
8:30 a.m. until noon at
the ramp in Nokomis, on
Casey Key just north of
the Albee Road Bridge; at
the Venice Train Depot,
200 N. Seaboard Ave.;
and at the Higel Park
ramp next to the Venice
Yacht Club.
The local Coast Guard
Auxiliary will conduct the
safety checks along with
Venice Police Depart-
ment's Marine Patrol and
the Venice Sail and Power
Squadron.
Each vessel in compli-
ance with state and
federal safety laws will
receive a "Seal of Safety"
for its windshield.
The purpose of the
courtesy inspections is
to provide information
and education to boaters
about safety and safety-
related state and federal
laws, according to the


UEFL*N4


m


Coast Guard's Patrick
Wheeler and Paul Joyce,
Venice's senior marine
patrol officer.
The courtesy inspec-
tions will be held in
conjunction with the
annual National Boating
Safety Week, which runs
from May 19 to May 25.
"It's basically about
boater education," Joyce
said.
For example, boaters
are required by law to
have a life jacket for each
person aboard a vessel.
"Sometimes when I
ask to see the life jackets
it takes a captain two
or three minutes to
get the life jackets out
from where they are
buried under the bow or
elsewhere on the boat,"
Joyce said. "I explain
that in an emergency
he would not have that
much time."
Also, life jackets must
have a whistle or other
noise-making device
attached. Life jackets
cannot have rips or tears,
and the wearer of the
jacket must be able to
lock it in place.

Joyce, the city's lone
Marine Patrol officer,
will be promoting the
department's Little
Bobber Program, which
provides safe life jackets
for infants and small
children.
Wheeler, a Venice resi-
dent, is the local Coast
Guard Auxiliary's acting
flotilla safety officer for
vessel examinations. He
devotes every Saturday
morning to the cause of
boat inspections.
"About 50 percent of
boaters don't pass," he
said.
Even if a boater does
not, he or she is given
the Seal of Safety if the
problem is corrected
within 48 hours and the
boat is re-inspected.
Wheeler advises
people to put the phone
number of the closest
U.S. Coast Guard station
in their cellphones.
The closest station is at
Cortez, 941-794-1607.
The Venice Marine Patrol
can be reached by call-
ing the Police Depart-
ment's main number,
941-486-2444.


FROM ABC 7
Sarasota County is
hoping to hit a home run
with the Florida High
School Athletic Asso-
ciation, as Ed Smith Sta-
dium officials confirmed
they will be entering a
bid to host next season's
state baseball finals.
If successful, the con-
tract could bring more
than a million dollars in
revenue to Sarasota, but
officials at Ed Smith think
they may have some
tough competition from
Tampa and Fort Myers.
Sarasota last hosted the
finals in 2008.
"We're hopeful; we've
been working, we've
really assembled a strong
team of community
leaders and people that
have helped us craft the
bid in putting it out," said
Laura Williams, director
of Florida operations for
the Baltimore Orioles.
She said bringing
the championship
series back to Ed Smith


Stadium wouldn't just be
great for the facility, but
an economic boom for
the city.
"We've been putting
together a team here in
Sarasota County, working
together with SCSC, the
Sarasota County Sports
Commission, to put the
bid together so that we
can hopefully draw that
back into the commu-
nity," she said.
Numbers from the
2011 championships
in Port St. Lucie paint
a very good picture,
showing that more than
9,000 people attended
the event, creating more
than 4,500 hotel room
nights leading to an
estimated economic
impact of more than
$600,000.
"I'm pretty confident
that we're going to have a
good chance to land this
event," said Jason Puckett
of the SCSC, adding that
winning the bid would
guarantee the event stays
in Sarasota for the next


IHours: Mon. -Thurs. 1 lam-9pr
Fr. 11lam-9:30pm
Sal. 4:00-9:30pm


three years. "With 32
teams from across the
state and their families
and friends coming down
to watch the event, we
anticipate having several
thousand room nights,
and yes we expect it to
generate over a million
dollars' worth of eco-
nomic impact."
While the county is
helping to get the bid,
Puckett says there will be
no risk for taxpayers.
"The Orioles are going
to be the finance of
the event, so they will
assume all financial
liability," he said. "And
there is a chance the
Orioles could lose
money on this event
while the community
makes money through
economic impact, hotel
rooms, restaurants. So
the Orioles are being
great partners in this
bid."
The announcement
of the winning bid will
be sometime later this
summer.

CITY NOTES
COMPILED BY
NEWS EDITOR GREG GILES

Bond savings
growing
The refinancing of city
bonds urged by Finance
Director Jeff Snyder is sav-
ing the city considerably
more than anticipated.


In a memo from City
Manager Ed Lavallee to
city council dated May 4,
he said the savings were
conservatively estimated
in previous briefings to
be between $450,000 to
$500,000. City officials
now say the anticipated
savings from 2013 to 2016
are projected at $618,289.


Arbiter upholds
discharge for DUI
An arbitrator has
ruled in the city's favor
over the firing of a city
employee for a DUI.
A senior inspector in
Venice's Building and
Code Enforcement
Department, Michael


Reeves, was found guilty
of driving under the
influence March 21,
2011, and had his driver's
license suspended for six
months.
A senior inspector
is required to possess
a valid Florida driver's
license, according to
the city attorney, so the


employee was discharged
on April 15, 2011 for "just
cause."
The American Federa-
tion of State, County and
Municipal Employees
Local 1718 union filed a
grievance contesting the
discharge. An arbitra-
tion hearing was held
March 8, with a decision


rendered on April 23.
The arbitrator upheld
the city's action, denied
the grievance and
ordered the union to
pay the entire cost of the
arbitration proceeding,
according to a May 3
memo by City Attorney
Bob Anderson to city
council.

New owner, new name for St. Andrews


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

"One of the first
changes will be the
name to St. Andrews
Medical Park," said Brian
Waxman, managing
director and co-founder
of AW Property Com-
pany, which has acquired
the Surgery Center at St.
Andrews, 1350 E. Venice
Ave.
Former owner Health-
care Realty Trust Inc. sold
the three buildings in
the health complex for
$9.5 million to Waxman's
AW St. Andrews LLC in
partnership with Med-
Properties Holdings of
Dallas, Texas. The Venice
location was one of


seven medical complexes
on the west coast of
Florida acquired in the
transaction.
Consisting of three
buildings constructed
between 1996 and 1998,
St. Andrews Medical
Park's tenants include
Center For Sight, HCA
Surgery, Dimensional
Imaging, Quest Diagnos-
tics, Retina Associates,
Primary Urgent Care and
The Heart Institute.
The complex is
designed for patients
whose surgical needs do
not require an overnight
stay. Practices include
ophthalmology; cos-
metic, reconstructive,
orthopedic and general
surgery; podiatry; ear,


nose and throat; gynecol-
ogy; and urology.
"Following the name
change, we will under-
take a pretty good clean-
up, specifically the roofs,
air conditioning and
parking lot," said Wax-
man. "We are opening
a leasing office staffed
by four professional real
estate operations people
to handling leasing,
property management
and maintenance. The
objective is to lease
vacant space to orthope-
dic and ob-gyn physi-
cians and set up a family
physicians practice."
Founded in 2002, AW
Property Company is
headquartered in Palm
Beach Gardens. Forty-five


employees operating
from seven offices
throughout the state
manage 2.75 million feet
of commercial space in 90
medical buildings.
"We looked at Venice,
liked the community
and we see a long-term
horizon with this invest-
ment," said Waxman.
MedProperties Hold-
ings of Dallas, Texas, is
a general partner and
sponsor of private equity
investment in new

value-added acquisitions

estate projects through-
out the United States. It

SUN CORRESPONDENT

The Sarasota County Com-
mission approved a grant of
$124,000 Wednesday to assist
Global Organic Specialty Source
Inc., an organic produce dis-
tribution company, to relocate
its operations from Manatee
County to Sarasota County.
The vote was 4-1 in favor
to approve the grant, with
Commissioner Jon Thaxton
dissenting over "certain aspects
of the application that were
inconsistent with the program's
stated objectives," he said.
Thaxton went on to support
the company's move to Sara-
sota County, however, calling
it "a strategic piece of building
a business cluster of a very
desirable enterprise, in terms


of sustainable industries."
The grant will be payable over
a four-year term as company
president Mitch Blumenthal
and his sister Ronni, who serves
as vice president of administra-
tion, expect to create 62 new
jobs with an average annual
salary of about $41,000. The
company has committed to
an additional capital invest-
ment of $930,000 for the move,
which will place it in a currently
vacantWinn-Dixie at the comer
of McIntosh and Clark roads by
the July Fourth weekend.
Commissioner Joe Barbetta,
who moved approval of the
grant, praised its passage.
"It's an adaptive reuse of an
existing building," Barbetta
said. "Jobs are important and
the economic impact is pretty
strong here."


Mitch Blumenthal was
clearly pleased with the vote.
"We're going from 23,000
square feet to 80,000 square
feet," he said. "This incentive
really helps, because we need to
hire more employees. This new
space will help us ship organic
produce to national retailers,
regional retailers, mom-and-
pop stores, buying clubs. Our
goal is to get life-giving foods
into as many mouths both
locally and throughout the
Southeast as possible."
Ronni Blumenthal was
excited that the county com-
mission green-lighted the
move.
"This is a great county and
a great area for an organic and
green-sustainable business,"
she said. "We're delighted to
be here."


Another restaurant


closes in bypass site


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Once again the restaurant
location 405 North U.S. 41
Bypass is shuttered, just two
weeks after a name change
to the German Beer House
Restaurant.
Formerly the Blarney Stone,
it opened in June last year.
Jurgen Wochnik, owner and
executive chef, said he was
bringing Irish and German
cuisine to the area with a pub
bar, stage and entertainment.
Two weeks ago he admitted
the location had lost its liquor
license, and he changed the
name to promote beers from
around the world.
Previously, it had been
Dimitri's Home Style Buffet,
which opening in September
2009, the second time around


for owner Dimitri Syros. He
had undertaken extensive
renovation and remodeling,
but he closed it nine months
later, in June 2010.
Syros was no newcomer
to Venice and had 45 years'
experience in the restaurant
business. He said the income
was insufficient to sustain the
business due to the economy.
New owners had acquired
the location in July 2008,
opening as Theo's, but they
had an extremely brief oper-
ating period, closing it five
weeks later.
Prior to that, in 1999 Syros
had opened Dimitri's Country
Buffet in the same location,
operating for nine years. He
decided to retire, closing it in
2008 and moving to Michigan.

Eunice M.
Crompton
Eunice Manchester
Crompton passed on
peacefully Monday,
May 7, 2012,
After a long
illness.
M a 1 She was


"* born April 9,
1926, and
raised
in South
Dartmouth,
Mass. Eunice was an hon-
ors graduate of Bridgewa-
ter State Teachers College
and a sister of Phi Mu. She
taught first grade in the
New Bedford and North
Easton school systems.
Eunice enjoyed
64 years of marriage
and is survived by

on May 5, 2012. Over
their many years of mar-
riage, Eunice and Stuart
resided in South Dart-
mouth, North Easton and
Yarmouthport, Mass., as
well as Venice, Fla.
Eunice was a very kind,
humble and generous
woman. She possessed
a radiant smile and a
twinkle in her eye and

everyone. She lived her life
and raised her family by
her own example in a very
dignified and quiet way.

Eunice's true passion was
her lifelong devotion to
her family. She was a lov-
ing wife, caring mother
and doting "Nana" to
seven grandchildren and
11 great-grandchildren.
Words cannot express
how much she will be
missed by all those
who knew her and were
fortunate enough to have
their lives touched by
this magnificent lady. We
will always love her and
cherish in our heart the
many fond memories
and blessings she gave to
all who knew her.

SUN NEWSPAPERS


OUR VIEW



Legislators, if you really like competition...


Now that Florida legislators
again have left millions of
uncollected sales taxes sitting
on the table, they might want to take
another approach: Just ask.
That's what Tennessee has done
with Amazon, the world's largest
online retailer.
The state now requires Amazon
to notify customers that state sales
and use taxes are due. Buy a new
Kindle, say, and you'll get a "Hello
from Amazon" email that tells you
that you owe the state money. The
email directs you to the Web page of
the Department of Revenue, which
shows you how to calculate and pay
the sales tax.
The state acknowledges on its
website that the purpose is to both
raise money and "to protect local
merchants, who must collect the sales


tax, from unfair competition from
out-of-state sellers who do not collect
Tennessee's sales tax." But there's no
heightened enforcement bite behind
the law. The tax police won't show up
at the door. The state only points out
that consumers are responsible for
paying the tax themselves.
The law only went into effect on
March 1, so there are no solid data on
how much has come in, a spokesman
for the state Department of Revenue
told us. But the fact is some people
will simply follow the law and do the
right thing if asked. The state will get
some of the tax revenue it has been
due all along.
"I can guarantee we will, just from
the sheer volume," said spokesman
Billy Trout. "How much is anybody's
guess."
It's a small step and one that will


lead to something much bigger in
Tennessee in a couple of years but
this is something Florida should
consider. Consumers here also are
responsible, but they ignore it. So just
ask. Notify people of their obligations.
Make it easier for consumers to follow
the law and pay sales taxes for online
purchases.
In Tennessee's case, the issue came
to a head when Amazon agreed to
build two distribution centers in
the state. Legally, courts have ruled
e-tailers do not have to collect state
and local taxes unless they have a
physical presence in a state. The new
distribution centers gave Amazon that
presence.
But after the state had given Ama-
zon a pass, in-state retailers objected
and legislators rebelled. The new
governor eventually worked out a deal


in which Amazon would begin collect-
ing and paying taxes itself in January
2014, or earlier if national legislation
were passed. Until then, Amazon
agreed to notify customers they owed
the money themselves.
Amazon, which for years has fought
all attempts to force sales tax collec-
tions, is beginning to lose its headlock
on the political machinery, especially
in states where it wants distribution
centers. In September, Amazon will
start collecting sales taxes in Califor-
nia and Pennsylvania. Indiana will
join the pack in 2014.
That's what we really need: An even
playing field for online and bricks-
and-mortar retailers. Until we get to
that point, though, we might as well
have something that makes it easier
for people to pay the taxes already
due. So, Plan B?


'Best of,' even better


I love to see businesses of all
sizes thrive. I think the pure
adrenaline that must come
with owning a successful
business is comparable to that
feeling a pilot must have when
lifting a war plane off the
tarmac and going full throttle
soon afterward. "Simply
amazing" is what comes to
mind.
Even more thrilling to a
business owner is winning an
award determined by votes
from the very people who
either shop at a particular
store or use a particular service
provided by a company on a
routine basis. Based on what
it means to a business and the
community to be the "Best
of Venice" in a category, we
have decided to make this
an incredible event for our
businesses.
This year we are completely
revamping the Venice Gon-
dolier Sun's annual" Best of"
program as I think it is an
amazing achievement to have
that "Best of" title bestowed
upon a business. I also firmly
believe we all should celebrate
in such a manner that all
businesses will work harder to
win an award generated from
votes in the community. So
here is what we are going to do
for 2012.
At the beginning of
September or October (still
being debated) we are going
to publish a special section
that will include ballots listing
all the categories and types
of businesses we want your
votes for. The first ballot will
be "Eat and Drink" basi-
cally, the "Best of" anything to
do with dining and beverage
service. The second ballot will
be "Health Care and Beauty";
the third will be "Real Estate
and Home Improvement"; the
fourth "Shopping and Travel/
Recreation"; and the fifth and
final ballot will include busi-
ness and professional services.
This section will not only
contain the ballots but serve
as a place for businesses to
advertise as a reminder to the


public about which category
you are in and that you would
value their vote as this process
unveils.
Because this is a reader poll,
we will only distribute the
ballot one time, in October; set
a deadline for the ballots to be
submitted to us; and only put
the ballot in home-delivered
copies and specific stores
across the market for single-
copy sales. We will list those
outlets for those who do not
subscribe and want to partici-
pate in the voting.
Ideally, we get the ballots
filled out completely and begin
calculating the results so we
know by year's end the "Best
of" in all the categories. We will
have a winner and two finalists
per category.
Now comes the exciting part.
We are going to partner with
all the winners to have a "Best
of Venice" party in January
and an awards ceremony
fitting for this type of accom-
plishment. Winning compa-
nies can purchase individual
tickets or complete tables to
attend the reception, dinner
and awards ceremony. After
the winners have decided, we
will offer the same recognition
opportunity to the finalists
until all the seats are taken
in the venue. If there is space
remaining, we will offer tickets
to the public.
Every program I have
ever done concerning busi-
ness achievement produces
one company that has the
most votes. That is how we
will determine the Venice
Gondolier Sun Company of the
Year.
We plan this to be a formal
event and we promise to treat
our community business
leaders as queen and kings on
this magical night. So get your
ads ready for the ballots, start
telling your regulars about our
new and exciting program,
and together let's make this
a spectacular event that only
gets better year after year. I
look forward to sharing your
success with you.
Our businesses deserve to be
recognized, and it is our pledge
to make sure we reward you for
your work. We will give you an
opportunity to continue to tell
the public about your award
on a monthly page in our
newspaper. Together we can
positively affect our commu-
nity all year long.

lisher of the Gondolier Sun.

Shoveling it. To the person
who said that President Obama
fell into an economic hole and
is slowly but surely digging
us out of it, I have some facts
for you. The average price of
gasoline as of Jan. 19, 2009,
was $1.85 a gallon. That's
three years that Obama has
managed to bring the price
to $3.92 a gallon. Unemploy-
ment in December of 2008
was 7.2 percent. President
Obama has managed to bring
unemployment all the way to
8.3 percent. The U.S. national
debt in December 2008 was
$10.3 trillion. President Obama
has managed to bring the
national debt to $15.5 trillion
in just three years. If that is
digging us out of a hole, please
call President Obama and tell
him to stop diggin'.
No kids. I disagree strongly
with the increased regulations
on dog-friendly restaurants in
Venice. First, for me and many
others, our dog is not an option
but part of our family. Dogs are
cleaner than people. Very few
diseases are transferable from
dogs to humans. Waiters do not
have to wash their hands after
shaking hands with a human.
Yuck, think of the germs. They
don't have to wash their hands
after touching dishes and forks.
Think of the germs. Children
run wild, screaming and are
obnoxious. Are there regula-
tions? No. If you don't like dogs,
don't eat at dog-friendly restau-
rants. I don't like kids so I don't
eat at kid-friendly restaurants.
Give the dogs a break. We don't
need any more regulations.
Off limits. Once again I've
seen that the Sarasota County
Parks Department has rented
out the beach pavilion at
Nokomis Beach to a private
party. The private party was
the Casey Key Homeowners
Association. When it does this,
it limits access to the beach
and also limits access to the
restrooms. The Parks Depart-
ment has to realize that this
is a pavilion that is owned by
the taxpayers and maintained
by the taxpayers. It is not its


Let 'em




(^1


Have It
prerogative to rent it out and
close it down because of a
private party. I think the Parks
Department is out of control,
between wanting to charge for
yoga at the beach and shutting
down a public pavilion for
a private party. To follow its
logic, I assume that it could
probably shut down the entire
beach for a private party if it so
desired. Something is wrong
at the Parks Department, and I
think it needs looking at from

Uncommon. Where are we
going? Starting with having to
have a beer with a white guy
at the White House to now
poor Trayvon. We, meaning
Jesse Jackson and his Rainbow
Coalition and Al Sharpton. The
Black Panthers are adding fuel
to the situation, which allows
a female of color to say on
national television broadcast
that it's all a result of "pink
pigs" and their behavior. Well,
since the "n" word is off limits,
now the racist term is pink
pigs. Have we not taken our
sensibilities to a level that we
can no long have an opinion?
We have open season on
Mitt Romney's wife because
she didn't have a job outside
the home. Is our respect for
fellow man gone berserk and


the legal recourse become a
wildfire out of control? If com-
mon sense were so common,
everyone would have it.
Too loud. I thought there
was a law against commercials
on TV stations being louder
than the program. I'm watch-
ing Comcast Channel 38,
and every time a commercial
comes on it blasts you out of
your seat.
Not her. PU.! I was relieved
to read that someone else has
noticed the bad smell of sulfur
in the water in South Venice. My
husband has been blaming me!
Unclear. Greg Giles' story
about our council being
unhappy with accounting was
very hard to follow. I watch
council meetings on television
and what is said is not always
clearly reported by Mr. Giles.
Also, the cost for pursuing a
new city manager should be
charged to the council budget
since it was their idea to bypass
the perfectly acceptable interim
city manager. And, if many of
us knew that there would be
costs involved, why didn't they?
(I'm stating this facetiously.)
Eating out. Regarding Ven-
ice's doggie-dining rules: We
eat out about two times a day
every day except for Sundays.
The proposed rules, together
with Venice's indecision
regarding them, means it will
adversely affect restaurateurs,
since we are already taking our
business out of the city's limits.

Airport is older but not more important


We recently read about
the 300 jobs said to be on
the Venice airport prop-
erty. However, the four
or so aviation businesses
there only provide about
10 percent of this total.
All the other full- and
part-time jobs can be
attributed to places like
Sharky's, Honoluana and
the golf course, which
would be here anyway.
It's been said that the
Venice Municipal Airport
pours millions of dollars
each year into our local
economy. How was this
figure arrived at? Some-
one took all the yearly
landings, including touch
and gos, and multiplied
it by about $450. At one


point this astounding fig-
ure was even posted on
the Venice city website.
Lucky, lucky us, the
army built this airport,
never envisioned in the
Nolen Plan, during World
War II and generously
gave it to Venice. So isn't
it reasonable that it must
always be used as an
airport or it will revert
to the government? Not
really. The Caspersen
family offered this land
to the government to be
used as an army base. It
did not specify "airport."
I believe there was every
expectation that it would
be temporary and not
used as an airport.
The government
acquired massive
amounts of property dur-
ing World War II. After-
wards, these properties
were generally returned
free or for a nominal
sum. A good example is
Henry Ford's Willow Run
Plant. But this did not
happen in Venice. After
the war, some federal


officials wanted lots of
airports, so we got this
"use it or lose it,' pro-
posal. However, the feds
never said it had to be a
large and noisy airport.
Another part of the
airport deal was that all
revenue from anything
built on the airport site
must go to airport. We are
told how fortunate we are
not to have to subsidize
the place. Think about it.
The city doesn't receive
a penny in revenue from
the airport. Aviation
businesses pay no city
taxes. And the rents that
are paid to the airport
are largely sweetheart
contracts, but that is a
story for another day.
The noise issue is
another example of
amazing logic. First of
all, airplanes make noise.
Over the years the noise
has gotten problematic.
There are more and
larger prop aircraft, jets,
helicopters and training
flights. I believe there
is a direct connection


between noise and
property values.
The assertion that peo-
ple should have known
they'd be living near an
airport is specious. Why
must people put up with
an unnecessary annoy-
ance? Years ago no one
could have reasonably
expected things to get so
bad. It is now a problem
throughout Venice. There
is no reason why there is
no comprehensive noise
reduction program with
daily follow-up by staff,
as is common elsewhere.
While there are many
conscientious pilots here,
there continues to be a
group who believe they
are "above" the rest of
the community and don't
have to follow fly-friendly
and noise-abatement
procedures. Most pilots
based here also do not
live in the city of Venice,
especially the jet pilots
who mainly just fly in to
drop off or pick up one
or two people. Just like
the bad apple analogy,


the few who constantly
disturb the community
are giving the rest a bad
name.
The Venice airport
is not an essential air
service airport. There are
many commercial and
general aviation airports
serving the area. It is
mostly a recreational
airport with some private
jet service. There is no
reason to try to make it
larger at the expense of
the community, just so a
very few (think 1 percent)
may profit. Airports don't
pay their own way. They
are heavily subsidized
with our federal tax and
ticket surcharge dollars.
There is nothing wrong
with keeping the airport
small and acknowledging
that. Property values in
Venice upon which the
city relies would be more
secure if residents felt
that their quality of life
is more important than
the excesses of some
recreational flyers and jet
setters.


A recent article called
the airport "a city within
a city." This is a gross
exaggeration. The airport
is a very small part of
the community and one
that is not critical to the
city's success. Residents'
continuing desire to live
here and believe that
their property is worth
something are critical
to the city's health and
economic well-being.
So it is not a question
of who was here first. The
question is who should
come first, the com-
munity or the airport.
The good pilots here
and everywhere know
the right answer and act
accordingly, and so do
good city leaders.

I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


More important
than money
Editor:
Sarasota County,
please be sensible in
your actions regarding
free yoga on Venice
Beach.
According to the
online fiscal budget,
Sarasota County spends
more than $12.5 million
annually to promote
tourism. Free yoga on
Venice Beach is an
attraction that costs you
nothing. This amenity
is a wonderful offering
that enhances the Venice
experience for tourists
and residents. The little
revenue that you would
gain by charging rent for


the beach could likely
end up costing you as
adverse public relations
tarnish the Sarasota/
Venice experience. And,
if a registration fee is
put into place, the fun,
friendly, spontaneous
experience is diminished.
The arguments that
I have heard from the
county include taking
too much space on the
beach. Really? At 8 a.m.,
the beach is nearly
deserted except for the
yoga participants.
Another argument is
that perhaps another
yoga instructor would
like to offer yoga on the
beach. It's a very big
beach and there is plenty
of room for everyone at


this time of the morning.
Finally, our location
at the entrance to the
public beach suppos-
edly blocks access to
the beach. Elin Larsen
takes great care to make
sure that a clear path is
open for beach guests.
We leave the beach in
pristine condition (just
as we find it).
Yoga promotes a
healthy lifestyle and
helps participants
remain active so they
can support Sarasota
County with our taxes
and overall economic
contributions to the
area's fiscal health.

Pat Brown
Venice


A small price to pay
Editor:
Waking up in Venice
and going to the beach
to stretch with Elin and
greet the day together is
a joyous thing. Perhaps
both sides that are
involved in deciding the
fate of free yoga would
do well to practice the
essence and art of yoga
- that of flexibility and
deeper understanding of
body and mind.
I'm guessing that
donations to Elin of $1 to
$5 by 100 to 300 par-
ticipants in each of two
daily sessions is quite a


substantial reward. For
her to pay a permit fee
seems a very small rule
to follow for that very
special privilege and
prosperity.
The city and county
we live in have a respon-
sibility to maintain the
beautiful Sarasota public
lands we all share (hence,
permit fees). To think
of our elected officials


as the bad guys in this
scenario is a disservice;
they're just doing their
job.
I see no reason what-
soever for the need of
names of participants.
Yoga on the beach
can easily be a win-win
situation.

Venice High sophomore
Brandon Elmy and his father,
Robert, would spend countless
hours practicing hitting.
This dedication and love for
the game has transformed the
16-year-old into a clutch player
for the Indians.
The 6-foot-i, 190-pound
outfielder/designated hitter has
been a key reason for Venice's
success this season as the Indi-
ans prepare to play in the Class
7A state semifinal on Saturday in
Port St. Lucie. He, in turn, credits
his dad.
"He's been a huge part," said
Elmy. "We've spend numerous
hours hitting. All the time we
put in has definitely helped me
achieve who I am today. Because
of all the hard work we put in,
even if a pitch fools me, when I
was younger, he would tell me
not to get down."
His father told him to read
"The Mental Game of Baseball"
by H. A. Dorfman and Karl Kuehl.
"It helped me immensely,"
said Elmy. "It helped me open
up my mind to the game. It defi-
nitely taught me to be positive
after everything. See the ball,
be easy and if you are fooled,
get right back up. Baseball is a
short-term memory sport."
Elmy just loves the game.
"When you are actually out
on the field, you get so into it,
it kind of takes you away," said
Elmy.
The cleanup hitter is second
on the team in hitting with a
.364 batting average. He has
scored 12 runs and is tops with
19 RBI in 25 games.
"I feel like I am playing abso-
lutely great," said Elmy. "I am
hitting the ball hard and even
if I get an out, I am still staying
positive. I feel like I am getting
a lot of line drives and a lot of

Venice's Brandon Elmy gets some bullpen work in Monday at Venice High. Elmy,
who has a 2-0 record as a pitcher with a 0.98 ERA, is best known for his hitting.

and a team-high 19 RBI. Venice plays Atlantic Community in the Class 7A state
semifinal at 1 p.m. Saturday in Port St. Lucie.


hard-hit balls."
"He is a very self-motivated,
focused kid," said Venice High
head coach Craig Faulkner. "He
corrects any mistakes he has. He
stays out (on the field) probably
more than anybody does after
practice."
Elmy also got some extra
time in by playing on the junior
varsity this season to work on
his pitching.
"It was to get my pitching in
tune but I think it helped my
hitting too, so I can relax (at the


plate)," said Elmy. "At the begin-
ning of the season my pitching
was everywhere. Now I definitely
settled down."
On the mound, Elmy, who
throws as high as 88 mph, has a
2-0 record in six games. In 21 1/3
innings, Elmy has allowed just
12 hits with 19 strikeouts for a
0.98 ERA.
Mostly, the season has been
one big hit after another.
In the regional final against
Tampa Gaither, Elmy stepped to
the plate in a scoreless tie and

score the game's first run in a 2-0
victory.
"First-pitch fastball," said
Elmy. "I knew it was coming. The
previous at-bat I took a first-
pitch fastball. The adrenaline got
up because I saw the kid make
the diving play out there (in the
outfield on the play before). I
thought, 'I have to pick someone
up from that.'"
Getting those key hits was a
goal for Elmy at the beginning of
the season.
"I wanted to be clutch as
many times as I can," said Elmy.
"I feel like I am getting that
down. I notice I am getting a lot
of two-strike hits. I like the RBI
too."
"He's very clutch," said
Faulkner. "It doesn't matter how
he looks on one swing, the next
time they throw him the same
pitch he can rip it. He makes
adjustments in a hurry."
Elmy is in the No. 4 hole in the
batting lineup for a reason he
can hit all pitches.
"The fastball, breaking ball,
and he handles outside pitches,"
said Faulkner. "He doesn't get
shaken or rattled easily, which is
unusual for a sophomore and he
handles all pitches."
"I am seeing the ball out of the
pitcher's hand really well," said
Elmy. "If you can do that and
if you have a little hindsight of
what you have seen before, then
it definitely helps."
One defining moment of the
season gave Elmy a sense of the
team's potential to make it to
states.
It occurred on April 25, when
the Indians hosted Sarasota
in the Class 7A-District 11
semifinal.

less tie for eight innings before

About that time, a

The police officer

Firefighters give back to communities


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER
Firefighters have a giv-
ing spirit and want to help
improve people's lives.
In keeping with that
spirit, they started a
fundraising campaign
of selling a Firefighter
license tag for $25 five
years ago to increase
donations to charitable
organizations.
On May 14, Suncoast
Professional Firefighters
and Paramedics Local
2546 gave $16,000 to 18
local nonprofit organiza-
tions, which included
the Muscular Dystrophy
Association. Local 2546
has had a 50-year part-
nership with MDA to fight
neuromuscular diseases.
Sarasota County
recipients included The
Salvation Army, Catholic
Community Foundation's
"Dreams Are Free" pro-
gram, Tidewell Hospice,
Sarasota Firefighters
Benevolent Fund, Loveland
Center, All Faiths Food
Bank, Sarasota Coalition on
Substance Abuse, Venice
Firefighters Benevolent
Fund and Community
Youth Development.
Tim Tramel said he was
pleased to accept the $600
for Venice Firefighters
Benevolent Fund.
Manatee County recipi-
ents were Manasota Buds,
Community Haven and
CARE Center for Autism.
Charlotte County recipi-
ents included St. Vincent


De Paul Virginia B. Andes
Community Health, St.
Vincent De Paul Sacred
Heart, Villa San Carlos,
Charlotte YMCA, Charlotte
County Homeless Coali-
tion and Yah Yah Girls.
"This is an awesome
(grant) program," said
Charlotte County Commis-
sioner Stephen R. Deutsch.
The license tag program
is in addition to other
long-standing fundraising
programs of Local 2546,
such as its boot drive and
fishing tournaments.
"The "Get Tagged"
program is designed
for Florida professional
firefighters," said Mervin
Kennell, president of
Local 2546.
"Like all other license
tags, the $25 goes to the
state first and back to
the county for whatever
purpose, like those who
buy wildlife tags."
The money goes back
to the state agency's
charities account, in this
case the Board of Profes-
sional Firefighters. The
local's president makes
a formal request for the
money to be given to
charities decided on by
the local board.
"We can get the money
every three months,
but we make an annual
request," Kennell said. "I
believe we get it all back
(the $25), but there may
be a small handling fee,
perhaps 1 percent."
With the recent $16,000
given to the nine fire


districts in three coun-
ties, $43,000 to MDA and
$5,000 that went to the
restoration of Venice's
first fire truck "Old Betsy,"
Kennell said Local 2546
has given about $65,000
so far in 2012.
Kennell said the local
also gave a special
donation this past year to
"Pink Heals: Guardians
of the Ribbon" in the
amount of $2,546 to
match Local No. 2546 -
in honor of Deb Schuster.
Schuster was a Sarasota
County firefighter and
paramedic who died May 5
after battling breast cancer.
The grant was given while
she was still battling the
disease. She had worked
up to March 26, and
Kennell said she was an
inspiration because she
worked every day without
complaint.
"She tried to serve her
community and fellow
firefighters for as long as
she could," Kennell said.
"We tell her story to all of
our new recruits so they

fighter license plates in each of the three counties.

Everyone can buy a
Firefighter's license tag,
and doing so will increase
the amount of money
that goes back to chari-
table organizations.

History of Venice aviation, Part I


By PAM JOHNSON
CITY OF VENICE MARKETING
AND COMMUNICATIONS OFFICER

Twenty-three years
after the Wright Broth-
ers made their famous
first flight, Capt. George
Haldeman landed his
aircraft on Nassau Street
to deliver strawberries
to tourists staying at the
Hotel Venice.
That day, Jan. 13, 1927,
marked the first known
flight to Venice.
Eight years later, the
Civil Aeronautics Author-
ity and the Works Project
Administration built
the Venice Downtown
Airport. The single grass-
strip runway, situated
where the Intracoastal
Waterway runs behind
the high school today,
was one of the city's first
economic drivers since
the Great Depression.
The field was completed
in 1935 and dedicated as
the Fred Albee Municipal
Airport in 1939.
Dr. Fred Albee, a
nationally renowned
orthopedic surgeon, and
his wife, Louella, arrived
by train in the Venice area
in 1917. With them were
Albee's cousin Lillian
Albee Nash and her hus-
band, Ellis. Together, the
two couples invested in
several acres of property
owned by Bertha Honore
Palmer's Sarasota-Venice
Company.
In Venice-Nokomis,
they found raw land
surrounded by pristine
waters. By 1923, the
Albees, with their young
son, Ted, were moving
into their Florida home,
Point of Palms, and devel-
oping the area known as
Albee-Nash subdivision.
The new house was
intended for the fam-
ily's winter use. Albee's
practice was still in
New York. People in the
medical field and other
elite visitors from across
the eastern seaboard
gathered at the Nokomis
house for parties on its
lawns. By 1921, Fred's
brother Stephen, moved
with his wife, Isabel, and
their son, Stephen Jr.,
from California, to help
oversee the Albee hold-
ings in the Venice area.

Dr. Albee's nephew,
Stephen Jr., attended
Kentucky Military Insti-
tute and was developing
an interest in flying. Dr.
Albee paid for Stephen's
flying lessons and bought
a Stinson Reliant aircraft.
In this town of about 500
people, Stephen Jr. and
his best friend, James
"Jimmy" Cousins (whose
father served as mayor
in 1944-45) started the
Venice Flying Club. Its
first president was James
Darby. Other members
included Elizabeth
"Betty" Hauser Arnall
(who would become the
city's first historian), her
father, George Hauser,
George Surls, Finn
Caspersen and Mae and
Tom Wrede Jr. Cousins
later enjoyed a career as
an Eastern Air Lines pilot.
Once Stephen Jr. had
his pilot's license, Dr.
Albee saw the advantage
of flying in and out of
Venice. Not only could he
decrease his travel time
between Venice and New
York, but now he could
have his patients flown
into Venice for treatment
at his Florida Medical
Center. The center was
located in the former
Hotel ParkView, the own-
ership of which reverted
to Albee after the Broth-
erhood of Locomotive
Engineers left town in the
late 1920s. The ParkView
Hotel was located on West
Venice Avenue where the
current post office sits.


It is believed Capt. George Haldeman was the first pilot to land
in Venice, arriving Jan. 13, 1927, to deliver strawberries to the
new Hotel Venice.

The Venice Flying Club, a group of aviation enthusiasts, was
formed at the Albee Airport in 1939, and included flight
instructor James "Jimmy" Cousins, left; George Hauser; the
club's first president, James Darby; Helga Roess Siede; Albert
Moreman; Ann Dorso Moreman; Mae Wrede; George Surls; Finn
Caspersen; Tom Wrede Jr.; Jack Wilkinson; and Claude Archer.


The medical center was
one of the reasons Venice
became well-known to
people in other parts of
the country.
Like the Albees, Olaus
and Freda Caspersen,
his brother Finn, and
the couple's sons, Finn
II and John, were winter
residents of Venice.
They frequently traveled
between Venice and New
Jersey. The couple started


Beneficial Loan Society,
which grew into an inter-
national finance com-
pany, Beneficial Corpora-
tion. During the 1930s,
the Caspersens accumu-
lated a sizable amount
of land in Sarasota and
Hardee counties, and had
extensive holdings on the
south side of Venice along
the beach.
The elder Finn
Caspersen lived on


Harbor Drive across from
City Hall, a favorite focus
of his attentions in Ven-
ice. O.W and Freda had a
beautiful home on a large
lot nearby on Granada
Avenue.
On March 4, 1941, Finn
Caspersen sent a tele-
gram offering the govern-
ment 3,000 acres for an
army campsite. More
than a year later, Col.
A.M. Nicholson landed on
the grass strip in Venice
to check out the offer. The
Army built the air base on
1,660 acres of beachfront.
The Venice airfield was
one of several training
sites built around the
state. Florida was known
for its flat land and year-
round flying weather,
making it good for the
expeditious pilot training
World War II demanded.
Today's airports in Avon
Park, Sarasota and Lake-
land all began as Venice
did a training field to
support the war effort.
Venice resident Melvin
Johns remembers when
his father, Albert, got
a job building the new
airfield.
"We were living in
Manatee City, which later
became Bradenton,"
Melvin said. "My dad and
two or three others came
to Venice, stayed during
the week and came home
on the weekends. He was
a laborer and a carpenter.
He worked at the new
airfield for about nine
months. During his off
times, he and his friends
would go to the beach,
about where Sharky's
is today, and watch the
planes doing target
practice. They had some
targets out in the Gulf
and aircraft from MacDill
(Air Force Base in Tampa)
would come down to use
them.
"My dad was injured on
the job and was taken to
see Dr. Albee at the Florida
Medical Center. When I
was 5 years old or so I took
my first trip to Venice, to
see Dr. Albee. Later, we
brought a neighbor's child
to see the doctor. It took us
all day to drive down and
drive back, so we brought
a picnic to have at the
beach."
By July 1942, the 37th


Service Squadron, 27th
Service Group, arrived
from MacDill Army Air
Base to complete con-
struction on the airfield,
including living quarters
for up to 900 personnel.
The following year the first
combat aircraft arrived
with the 13th Fighter
Squadron, 53rd Fighter
Group, for pilot training.
The 14th Fighter Squad-
ron followed. Aircraft that
were used included the
Bell P-39 Aircobra, Curtis
P-40 Warhawk, Republic
P-47 Thunderbolt and
the North American P-51
Mustang.
In January 1944, some
400 Chinese-American
airmen arrived for train-
ing. According to Barbara
Smith, a member of the
Venice Area Historical
Society, the idea that
these were nationalist
Chinese pilots sent to
the U.S. for training by
Madam Chiang Kai-shek
is a myth. Much like the
Tuskegee airmen, these
United States residents
of Chinese heritage were
racially segregated as the
14th Army Service Group.
In his book, "Americans
First: Chinese Americans
in the Second World War,"
K. Scott Wong says these
soldiers came from varied
backgrounds all over the
country. Some spoke
only English, some spoke
Mandarin, Cantonese or
one of the many Chinese
dialects known to their
families.
"The 14th ASG took
shape in Venice, Florida,
in 1944, but the move to
create all-Chinese Ameri-
can units began earlier."
Wong wrote.
The goal was to train
Chinese-Americans to
serve in China in support
of Gen. Claire Chen-
nault's Flying Tigers in
the China-Burma-India
Theatre, Wong said. They
were not pilots, but part
of the support team. From
Venice, the 14th ASG was
eventually deployed to
China. But not before
Owen Swartz arrived.

II, will run on this page

Rotary gives $50,000 to the community


By ROGER BUTTON
SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER SUN
"Today we are presenting
checks totaling more than
$50,000, the second-largest
amount ever given to commu-
nity groups since 1995 by the
Venice-Nokomis Rotary Club,"
said Rotarian Jim Renz, chair
of the Investment in Youth
Committee.
Organizations represented at
the May 10 luncheon club meet-
ing were Big Brothers Big Sisters,
Boys & Girls Club, Child Protec-
tion Center, Laurel Civic Asso-
ciation, Our Mother's House,
Project Graduation, the South
County FamilyYMCA, Safe Place
& Rape Crisis Center, Venice Art
Center, Venice Theater, Venice
Symphony, Venice Little League,
Venice Youth Boating, Venice
Masonic Lodge, Venice Literacy
Center, WareHouse of Venice,
Boy Scout Troop 1001, Rotary
Futures and Venice-Nokomis


Rotary Foundation.
Each of these groups and
clubs directly involved in assist-
ing children in the Venice area
presented specific projects that
will benefit from the donations.
"Your check will help 15
needy kids attend activities at
Boys & Girls Club this sum-
mer," said Mike Failin.
The Masons have already
processed 3,000 kids in the
Venice area in an Amber Alert
security project, including
fingerprinting, and are looking
to doubling that number.
Safe Place & Rape Crisis
Center has special programs
to assist children of families in
homes where spousal abuse
has occurred, said Natalie
Lewis, the child advocate.
The funds were raised at
three major events organized
by the Venice-Nokomis Rotary
Club: the Art Festival and Duck
Pluck in January, and Toast to
Venice in March.

'Daisy' is delightful and then some


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Venice Theatre closes its Main-
Stage Theatre as it began with
a hit.
"Driving Miss Daisy" by Alfred
Uhry is about as good as it gets on
any of the area theater stages this
week.
With Suzanne Coccia in the title
role, DaisyWerthan; Autry Davis
as her chauffeur, Hoke Coleburn;
and Mike Gilbert as Miss Daisy's
son, BoolieWerthan, director
Murray Chase could concentrate
on fine-tuning this great piece of
theater.
The modest set, period-
appropriate costumes by Ross
Boehringer, lighting by David
Casteneda and sound by Dorian
Boyd allowed the actors to shine,
and they did.
Because of the advanced age
of the audience members the
night I attended, there was much
laughter when they learned that
72-year-old Daisy could no longer
drive and would need to hire a
chauffeur. She is a Jewish lady
living in segregated Atlanta in the
early 1960s. That her chauffeur is
black and will eventually become
her best friend during a time
when violence is erupting all over
America as segregation comes to

story intriguing.
That Uhry left out any refer-
ences to the Robert Kennedy and
Martin Luther King Jr. assassina-
tions although he did include
plenty of references to King and
his church is part of what
makes this story so good. Moving


the story into the realm of great-

play and the developing friend-
ship of the two main characters,
as well as the interaction of each
of those characters with Boolie.

second-year garden club
scholarship winners.
Lauren Gadoury, a first-
year honoree, was given
$1,000. All three were in
the class of 2011 at Venice
High School.
"I learned about the
garden club scholarships
from Rotary Futures
at the high school,"
Mahoney said at the
May 3 luncheon honor-
ing the scholars. "They
even helped me with the
application this year."
Mahoney is planning to
major in environmental
studies at Florida Gulf
Coast University, where
she had a 3.92 GPA dur-
ing her freshman year.
She received $1,000 from
the club a year ago. At
VHS, she was active in
the fishing, zoology and
environmental clubs.
Mezhibovsky won
$2,000 last year and had a
3.961 GPA at Burnett Hon-
ors College at the Uni-
versity of Central Florida,
where she is majoring in
environmental microbiol-
ogy. AtVHS she earned a
varsity letter in track and


field and was a member
of Key Club and the Span-
ish Honor Society and an
officer in the HOSA and
Zoology clubs while also
doing an internship at the
Island Animal Hospital.
She had an internship
at the Aquatic Foods &
Science Lab in Gaines-
ville, plays guitar and
violin, taught guitar to
children and volunteered
with Special Olympics.
She is fluent in Russian,
Spanish and English and
plans to be a biomedical
scientist or botanist. She
also won the $2,000 Deep
South Scholarship from
the Florida Federation of
Garden Clubs,
Gadoury is a part-time
student at State College of
Florida, Manatee-Sarasota,
where she plans to pursue
studies in environmental
engineering. She has a 4.0
GPA. While in high school
she volunteered with
a church youth group
and Challenger baseball,

needs children and
coached Englewood Pop
Warner cheerleading.
The VAGC scholarship

WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

AKQ76cAQJ860 76AK 6

The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
1) Pass 14 Pass
9
What do you bid now?

A An already good hand has
increased dramatically in value. No
spade raise will come close to doing
it justice, not even a splinter bid of
four diamonds. The best way to tell
partner about your powerhouse is to
start with a jump shift to three clubs.
This action is perfectly safe even
if partner supports clubs vigorously,
you can always correct to spades at
the same level.

Q 2 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

S8 5 4 AK Q 9 7 6 2 8 7 2

The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
10 Pass 10 Pass
16 Pass ?
What do you bid now?

A The popular choice would likely
be a preference to diamonds or one
no trump, and no one can quarrel
with the mainstream. However, we
have a sneaky admiration for anyone
who chooses to rebid two hearts! It is
certainly a better suit than many five-
carders we have held.

Q 3 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

K J 9 2 8 5 4 K 7 K J 6 3

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

A If you play limit raises, this hand
has been lifted straight out of a
textbook jump to three spades. If
not, start with two clubs then support
spades at your next turn. That does
not do justice to your four trumps, but
what else can you do?

Q 4 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH

What would you bid now?


EAST
Pass


A That depends on your methods.
Most play that a jump in no trump
here is invitational, not forcing but
showing 11-12 points. If that is your
style, pass. However, if you play it as
game force, all you can do with your
balanced minimum is raise to three
no trump.

Q 5 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

SA Q 10 76 ) AQ 10 54 0 7 93


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
16 Pass 2NT
3K Pass 3NT

What action do you take?


EAST

Pass


A Partner knows most everything
about your hand except for one thing
- your fifth heart! With nothing of
value in either minor, insist on
playing game in a major. Bid four
hearts to complete the description of
your holding.

Q 6 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

S7 4 2 93 0 7 K J 10 9 6 5 2

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

A This deal is from a match
between Italy and the United States.
For the U.S., Edgar Kaplan made the
sensible bid of five clubs, which
could have been made. The Italians
landed in three no trump, which had
no play at all.

quickly and gets along
great with kids and other

Venice is 'Footloose'

Saturday

If you haven't seen "Driving Miss Daisy" yet, head over
to Venice Theatre and buy your tickets now before they
are all gone.This may be that wonderful theater's best
show this season and this has been one super season.
Call 941-488-1115.
Saturday morning, the South County YMCA's Cyclovia explores
the area's many trails and parks. Bring your bike to the Venice Train
Depot before 8 a.m. for this free event which will have activities on
Legacy Trail, Venetian Waterway Park and as far south as Caspers-
en Beach Park. The ride along the waterway trail from the depot to
Caspersen should be wonderful.
Then ride or jog over to downtown Venice for the
Farmer's Market which celebrates Armed Forces Day
Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon along West Tampa Avenue
between Nassau Street and North Nokomis Avenue. There you can
pick up a giant bunch of fresh basil, some homemade bread and
adopt a new pet seriously.
From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the 85th anniversary of the City of Venice
continues at Venice Municipal Airport with vintage military vehicles
and a static air show. There will be a fly-by of an F-16 in honor of
Armed Forces Day.
At 3:30 p.m., the Bill Millner Trio will play '40s music nearby at the
Venice City Mobile Home Park's recreation hall, which served as
the Officers Club for the Army Air Base during WWII.
At 7 p.m. head to Centennial Park for kids activities
beginning at 7 p.m. and the showing of the film,
"Footloose" in Centennial Park at 8:30 p.m.The film is free.
Hot dogs and popcorn will be available.

Leu Gardens worth a trek in any season


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Camellias and azaleas have finished
blooming for this year but the roses are
reason enough for a stop at Harry P Leu
Gardens this time of year.
There might even be a wedding in progress
within the formal rose garden area, depending
on the time of day. If so, enjoy the other gardens
until it ends. Signage will announce "Wedding in
progress."
There always is plenty to see on the site which
was home to Harry P Leu and his wife, Mary
Jane who purchased the site and 19th century
home in 1936. They developed the extensive
gardens with seeds and plants acquired on
numerous trips and ultimately left the site to the
city of Orlando. The rose gardens were begun by
Mrs. Leu in 1944 and now contain more than 215
varieties suited to the area's climate.
Less than three hours from most readers of
Sun papers, Leu Gardens is in planting zone 9b


which allows its gardeners to have good luck with
temperate plants such as camellias and azaleas
and also with tropicals such as agaves, bromeli-
ads, palms and succulents.
Trails and pathways wind around and through
the extensive grounds that wrap the southeast
quadrant of Orlando's Lake Rowena. Purchase
tickets and acquire a map at the garden house/
welcome center near the parking area. If you
want to include a tour of the house, note its
location on the map and plan your walk through
the gardens accordingly so that you are close to
the house on the hour or half hour for its tours.
Everything else can be seen at your own pace.
Should you be there on a weekend, inquire about
any weddings going on and factor those times
into your schedule.
Signage is good throughout the gardens. If you
have a smartphone, scan the QR code images
for additional information in some areas.
On June 17, fathers will be admitted free with
members of their family For other special events


such as movie nights or meetings of plant societ-
ies, visit the gardens' website.
Docents in the garden shop can offer pointers
about areas of the gardens that should not be
missed and other docents and master gardeners
may be encountered as you walk. They are happy
to answer questions about the gardens and
specific plants.
Camellias may be the most abundant species
(more than 2,000 plants) and can be found all
along the south and west sides of the property,
but there also are large displays of cycads, aroids
including giant philodendrons, some 50 types of
bamboo, many varieties of bananas, bromeliads,
citrus, conifers, crepe myrtles, ferns and a but-
terfly garden.
There are flowering trees in bloom throughout
the year.
Within the tropical stream garden are several
heliconias and ginger plants.
Herb and vegetable gardens are near the Leu
House which can be toured daily from 10 a.m. to

St. Petersb
BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
t. Petersburg is becoming known for its
glass. A ribbon-like window of glass makes
a major statement at the new Salvador
Dali Museum downtown and famed glass artist
Dale Chihuly has a retail store on Beach Drive
across from North Straub Park. There is even a hot
shop and glass studio on Central Avenue at the
corner of First Avenue North and Seventh Street.
May 19, the city's Museum of Fine Arts on
Beach Drive builds on that reputation with a
major summer exhibition: "Global + Local: Studio
and Contemporary Glass on Florida's West
Coast"'
It was only a matter of time before the museum
hosted a major exhibit in 2004 featuring works by
Chihuly coordinated to pieces in its permanent
collection. The artist studied the collection and
created works to coordinate with such major
works as painting of a red poppy by Georgia
O'Keefe and the museum's two Monets. Chihuly
created a red poppy in glass which was placed
on a high table lined up with the painting. Blue
glass flowers echoing the colors in the Monets
were "planted" beneath the two paintings and, in


urg is a 'gl
the garden courtyard, what appeared to be some
new types of tropical bamboo-like plants turned
out to be additional works by the master glass
artist of this century.
Featuring 60 works by some of the leading
glass artists of the time, the new show opens
Saturday with a Super Saturday program from
11 a.m. to 3 p.m. during which participants can
create their own piece of art glass to take home.
There also will be a presentation about the Steu-
ben collection from noon to 12:30 p.m. that day.
Sunday, the museum's chief curator, Jennifer
Hardin, will lead a gallery talk at 3 p.m. about the
show which she curated for the museum.
June 10, at 3 p.m. there will be another gallery
talk. That one will feature Duncan McClellan of
St. Petersburg, whose works are included in the
exhibition. Every Saturday at 11 a.m. family tours
of the collection will be offered throughout the
summer.
In addition to Chihuly and McClellan, the
special show includes work by area artists Owen
Pach and Chuck Boux as well as work by Harvey
Littleton, Lino Tagliapietra, Richard Ritter, William
Morris, Sonja Blomdahl, Dante Marioni, Toots
Zinsky and Yoichi Ohira. Glass shown in the


assy' town
collection is from as far away as Australia, Italy
and Sweden. Some work is on loan from area
collectors of major art glass.
From June 1 through Aug. 31, the MFA and
the Morean Glass Studio and Hot Shop will
offer one free child (6-18) admission with each
paid adult ticket. The Hot Shop is the place to
see firsthand what is involved in the creation
of art glass. Park at either location and take
the downtown Looper Trolley to the other site.
The Chihuly Collection (store) is free and just
across the street and about a block away from
the museum.The studio is at 719 Central Avenue
at the corner of First Avenue North and Seventh
Street.
The museum is at 255 Northeast Beach
Drive in downtown St. Petersburg. It is open
from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Wednesday,
Friday and Saturday and from noon to 5 p.m.
on Sunday. Thursday, the museum is open from
10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Admission is reduced to $10
after 5 p.m. until closing. All other days, admis-
sion is $17 for adults,, $15 for those 65 and older
and $7 for students 7 and older (including college
students with ID).

Hibiscus Festival


is a family event


BY SHIRLEY GEORGE
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The seventh annual Hibiscus Festival will be
held from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and
from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday at Laishley
Park in Punta Gorda.
The two-day event is free to the public.
Besides an exotic and native plant sale, there
are many activities for the whole family to enjoy.
Live entertainment will be provided on both
days.
The festival was Dawn McGibbon's vision
that inspired her to meet with several friends
who helped make the event bigger and better
every year. The festival will benefit the
Museum Society, a local non-profit
organization that funds the Charlotte County
Historical Center on Bayshore Road in
Charlotte Harbor.
Every year Curt Sinclair has provided one
of his new varieties of hibiscus. "The Star of
Punta Gorda" hibiscus will be this year's theme.
He has been growing and hybridizing hibiscus
for almost 30 years. Sinclair, who has been
featured on the Martha Stewart show, claims
that the hibiscus is the most popular tropical
plant on the planet.
The magic of hybridizing and creating new
varieties is a true high," Sinclair stated. "From a
cross (pollination) to a bloom is often only one
year."
The sale begins at 8 a.m. on Saturday. The Lil'
Miss Hibiscus Pageant will begin at 10 a.m. on the


main stage. Starting at noon, local musicians will
donate their time and talent to provide
entertainment The Secret Garden tours are
from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Historic Trolley
Tours are from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Gregg's
Automotive will provide the Green Hibiscus
Trolley to get people from Laishley Park to
the gardens and other historic areas of
Punta Gorda.
Sunday's event begins with the plant sale at
9 a.m., a special gospel music show at 10 a.m.,
and more live music throughout the afternoon.
The Secret Garden tour and historic trolley tour
will be available from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
The kids can enjoy the free rock wall and
bounce houses. There will be a vegetable market
and food vendors with their specialty items, and
the Historical Center will sell ice cold beverages
and a signature punch drink. Arts and crafts will
also be available. Marine Max will have a nice
display of boats.
The year's committee includes Teresa Evan,
sponsorship coordinator; Michael P Haymans,
entertainment director; Becky Copenhaver,
Secret Garden organizer; Frank Desquin,
Historical Center president; Wendy Lang,
treasurer; Jenny Miller, Lil' Miss Hibiscus Pageant
producer; Stan and Dianne Munson, plant vendor
organizers; Roxanne Julius.
The Hibiscus Festival committee thanks
Mosaic, the primary sponsor of this event.

Generations come together to bring


'The Phantom Tollbooth' from page to stage


PROVIDED BY THE VENICE THEATRE

he Phantom Tollbooth" opens at the
Venice Theatre on Thursday and runs
I through May 27.
"The Phantom Tollbooth" is the story of Milo,
a bored young boy who is transformed when
he discovers a magic tollbooth that's a gateway
to all kinds of adventures. He meets kings and
princesses and visits fantastic places, like the
Foothills of Confusion and the Mountains of
Ignorance, all with his trusty companion, Tock,
the watch-dog. Milo quickly learns that the pur-
pose of his journey is to rescue the princesses
of Rhyme and Reason and return them to the
kingdom.
Venice Theatre chose to stage "The Phantom
Tollbooth" because of its appeal for adults as well
as children a consideration the theatre always
makes when selecting its Generations Series
shows.
The stage version of "The Phantom Tollbooth"
was adapted by E. Susan Nanus from Norton
Juster's classic children's novel (with illustrations


by Jules Feiffer). First published in 1961, the
book is experiencing a resurgence in conjunction
with its 50th anniversary "CBS Sunday Morning"
recently aired a piece about it called "Crafting a
Literary Classic" and President Obama was seen
buying the book with his daughters on "Small
Business Saturday" at Kramerbooks & Afterwards
Caf6 in Washington, D.C.
Candace Artim, director of "The Phantom
Tollbooth" and Venice Theatre's assistant director
of education and outreach said, "I love this story
because it shows education can be fun especially
when experienced in a non-traditional way a
visual way, a participatory way. The gift of live
theatre is that we can bring the words from book
to life enabling the audience to witness firsthand
what Milo's journey was like."
Performances are at 7 p.m. Thursday through
Saturday as well as 2 p.m. Saturday and
Sunday at 2 p.m.
Tickets are $10 for students, $16 for adults,
and can be purchased at www.venicestage.com
or through the box office at 941-488-1115. The
box office is also open for walk-up sales from

SMedicare Supplement Plans
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 thousands2 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

'Y' Silver Sneakers groups stay fit


BY CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Popular Silver Sneakers exercise program
at the South County Family YMCA Warren
Loranger Branch in Englewood helps older
adults improve their balance, agility and strength.
John Mannion teaches a "Get Fit While You
Sit" class from 10:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. on
Tuesday and Thursdays. During each session
Mannion leads 40 to 50 seniors in a musical
workout.
He begins by showing them how to sway to the
beat, bend, stretch, and even stomp their feet as
they sit. Each exercise is designed specifically for
individuals who, despite age-related conditions,
wish to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Members are
encouraged to move at their own pace.
In addition to leading the Silver Sneakers
program, Mannion, 70, teaches power yoga ses-

sions three mornings a week. After college, he
taught earth science, operated a restaurant and
wrote a weekly food column. When he relocated
to Florida, he built furniture, worked in a frame
shop and took classes at the Englewood YMCA.
Eventually he was asked to "fill in" for instructors
and start his own class.
Silver Sneakers member Angie Zerad couldn't
be happier about being in Mannion's class. "You
know that getting old is sometimes not much
fun,' she said, "but John Mannion makes it a
happy morning every time I'm there." Member
Ginger Hager believes that exercising improves
her health. Joyce Knapke, who doesn't want to
become a "couch potato,' loves to socialize with
her Silver Sneakers friends.
Silver Sneakers programs originated in 1992
after founder Mary Swanson's father survived a
hear attack at age 51. Swanson searched for a

When you step out onto the Sunnybreeze Golf Course, you know you're somewhere special, somewhere different. There ae n o IhoIIses backing u~ ip to ilke 3lima1\ 3 s and no

Chef David Arbuckle: Curry Creek Cafe


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Chef David Arbuckle tells the story of the
girl who graces the cover of his restau-
rant's menu. The picture was taken in
1926, and she was the daughter of the photogra-
pher. Her father posed her standing atop a giant
manta ray, holding ropes like reins in her hands.
With the Gulf waters behind her, she appears
to be riding the ray like a horse. In actuality,
Arbuckle says the ray had been dead on the
beach for days, so it probably wasn't too much of
a challenge to lasso and ride it. It did, however,
make for a great picture and an interesting story
That's what it's like to sit down with Arbuckle
in his restaurant, Curry Creek Caf6 in Nokomis.
Dozens of 1920s photos taken in the Venice area
grace the walls, and every one of them has a
story
Arbuckle may not have been born here, but he
is practically a native. "I've lived here since 1960,"
he said. "I went to Nokomis Elementary and Ven-
ice High School. I've worked a lot in this town." He
has been in the restaurant business for 42 years,
and has been running kitchens since he was 21.
He really felt his career begin to lift off while he
was working in upstate NewYork. "For two years I
worked for Wildwinds an organic farm that had
a restaurant,' Arbuckle said. The NewYork Times
did two reviews of the restaurant of which he
was in charge, both very favorable. "That's how
my career got kicked off. I was able to use that in
future interviews."


His next big stop was Washington, D.C., where
he first worked for a restaurant in the Eastern
Market, a fresh public market in the heart of the
historic Capitol District. After that, he worked for
a restaurant a block from the White House called
Prime Plus. It was the early 1980s, and life in D.C.
was positive and hopeful. "The restaurants were
flush with customers,' said Arbuckle.
In 1989, he and his wife decided to move back
to the Suncoast. "It was my dream to open a res-
taurant, because I didn't want to work for anyone
else," he said. "When I was in D.C., I wanted to
have notoriety and be an all-star. Then I decided
I just wanted to be successful enough to provide
for my family."
Arbuckle looked around the area for a place to
open his restaurant and decided on a small build-
ing on the west side of U.S. 41 in Nokomis. Curry
Creek Caf6 serves a delicious, upscale-cuisine
menu with seafood, beef, pork, poultry, pasta,
and many Indonesian dishes. "My wife (Siti) is
Indonesian," explained Arbuckle. "Their food is the
most complex and wonderful food."
He describes one of his favorite Indonesian
dishes, beef randang. "It's a traditional Sumatra
beef stew with tender star anise, lemon grass,
date sugar and chili paste," he said. "It's a
mixture of hot and sweet." He said the chicken
sate, skewers of marinated chicken breast in a
sweet soy sauce and grilled, is another popular
menu item.
Curry Creek Caf6 has 32 seats in its dining
room and offers four additional seats at the bar.


This place is small enough that two people is
all you need to run it," said Arbuckle. "I just love
cooking, and change the menu twice a year,
so I don't get bored. My biggest challenge is to
keep expanding the menu without changing it too
much.
Curry Creek Caf6 is open for lunch and dinner
at 920 S. Tamiami Trail in Nokomis.
For more information, call 941-485-6560 or

d aTO FIGURE ofT WHAT TAKE rr, COCTO.? DRUNK FRM
death of young man H. APPENED TO 11 1THMSHE
I KNW RRVP


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
My son died suddenly
at age 45. An autopsy
found that he had aortic
valve stenosis. Two years
previous, his doctor had
him take a transesopha-
geal echocardiogram
because he had a heart
murmur. The cardiolo-
gist told my son to come
back in three years. He
said he might need a
valve replacement when
he was in his 60s or 70s.
Should he have been
under a cardiologist's
care all this time? He saw
a dentist four days before
his death. Could bacteria
have entered his blood
from the dental work?
Would they have killed
him that fast? I have lots
of guilt. Can you help me
understand how a big,
strong, healthy-looking
man can drop dead
in the early morning?
- S.L.
ANSWER: I know of
no words to soothe your
sorrow. You and your
family have my sincere
condolences.
The aortic valve is the
heart valve that closes af-
ter the heart has pumped
out its blood. Closure
keeps blood from leaking
back into the heart.
"Stenosis" indicates that
the valve has narrowed.
A narrowed orifice for
the valve makes the heart
beat harder in order to
pump blood.
Signs and symptoms
of aortic stenosis don't
appear until later in life,
when the area of the
aortic orifice has dimin-
ished considerably. Your
son had the ultimate test
in inspecting the aortic
valve, a soundwave pic-
ture of the heart with the
camera close to the heart
in the body's esophagus
- a transesophageal
echocardiogram. The
valve had not narrowed to
the point that treatment
was indicated. The dental
work done four days be-
fore his death no longer
requires antibiotic treat-
ment to prevent mouth
bacteria from attacking
the heart. In only a few
unusual heart conditions
is this still the practice.
Aortic stenosis is not one
of those conditions.
Three signs indicate
that aortic stenosis needs
immediate attention:
breathlessness when
active, chest pain when
active and fainting spells.
Your son had none of
these. An uncommon,
unpreventable and rare
complication of aortic
stenosis is the sudden on-
set of a heart rhythm that
oon

often is fatal. I believe
that's the cause of your
son's sudden death. His
death was unanticipated
and unable to be antici-
pated. No one is guilty of
neglect.

more information on
heart valve disorders

DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
As I was suffering from
gout for more than 10
years, and as you know
about my country, please
let me get your sugges-
tion and advisement for
treatment. I will be very
happy if you can do this.
Thanks for your help. I
am eagerly waiting for
your answer. C.H.
ANSWER: I'm sure
you won't mind me
mentioning to North
American readers that
you live in Myanmar,
formerly called Burma.
For an acute gout attack,
medicines called nonste-
roidal anti-inflammatory
drugs often are sufficient
to control pain. The one
most often chosen is
Indocin (indomethacin).
It should be available in
your country. Colchicine
is another medicine
used for gout attacks,
and it's been around for
many, many decades. I'm
positive that it, too, is
obtainable in Myanmar.
For prevention of attacks,
medicines that lower
uric acid work well. Uric
acid is a byproduct of cell
chemistry and cell recy-
cling. It's also responsible
for gout. Crystals of uric
acid form in the joints
when blood uric acid
is high. Allopurinol, a
medicine that slows
uric acid production, or
probenecid, a medicine
that encourages the
passage of uric acid into
the urine, are both easily
obtained in your country.
They've been used for
many years all over the
world.

My salt is stuck


Dear Heloise: I would
like to know if there is
any way to soften iodized
table salt once it has
hardened. Elaine, via
email
Hmmm a good ques-
tion, especially if you live
in a high-humidity area.
There is no recommended
way to soften iodized
table salt once it has
"caked," which is caused
by age and moisture,
according to our source.
A major manufacturer
suggests throwing the
salt away, but will offer
a coupon if you call the
company. Table salt usu-
ally is pretty cheap, too!
While on the topic of
table salt, do you know
what is added to salt
to keep it from sticking
together? The answer is
calcium silicate, which is
an anti-caking, odorless,
tasteless, white substance
that is mixed in with the
salt.
Canning and pickling
salt contain no additives
at all, so they are even
more likely to lump and
harden when exposed to
moisture. Heloise

Reheating eggs
Dear Heloise: To
heat a hard-cooked egg
(Heloise here: with no
shell) in the microwave,
push a wooden toothpick
through the center. Place
it on a microwave-safe
plate or paper plate, with
the toothpick pointed up
to prevent the egg from
exploding. Thirty seconds


Hints from Heloise

usually is enough time to
make a tasty, warm egg.
- Marcia in Manistee,
Mich.
Marcia, this is a new
hint! We had a lot of
fun testing it in Heloise
Central. Do be sure to
cover the egg with a
paper towel, just in case.
- Heloise
P.S.: Saw a note
posted on a microwave
at a motel: "Do not heat
hard-boiled eggs in the
microwave!"

Brown sugar
Dear Heloise: Instead of
putting bread in the bag
with brown sugar to keep
it soft, put the sugar in a
freezer bag without the
original wrapping. Flatten
it out while it is still soft
and pack it down. Keep
it in the freezer, and if it
gets too hard, put it in the
microwave for about half
a minute.
You can measure and
pack the sugar, when
needed, from the outside
of the bag. No sugar
on your hands, and no
soggy bread to pick out
of the sugar. T.O.,

Women take control of their

health by learning all they can


DEAR ABBY: Between
juggling the joys and
challenges of home life
and staying productive at
work, it's easy for women
to make quick decisions
now that could affect their
health later on, or to miss
early signs of medical
problems altogether.
To help women take
control of their health,
the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration's Office
ofWomen's Health and
the General Services
Administration's Federal
Citizen Information Center
have created the free
HealthyWomen's Action
Kit. It contains tips that
can help women of every
age. The topics include:
buying contact lenses
online, mammograms,
hypertension, cholesterol,
Pap tests, menopause and
hormones, and more.
Abby, thank you for
sharing this information
kit with your readers, and
for faithfully introduc-
ing all of us to ideas
and information to help
make our lives better. -
MARSHA HENDERSON,
FDA ASSISTANT
COMMISSIONER FOR
WOMEN'S HEALTH
DEAR MARSHA: I'm glad
to help get the word out to
my readers during National
Women's Health Week that
the information is available
for them at no cost.
Readers, among the top-
ics Marsha didn't mention
that are also included are
a guide to help you quit
smoking and facts about
tattoos, osteoporosis,
diabetes and health scams.
The more we know, the
better we can protect
ourselves and the people
we love.
The HealthyWomen's
Action Kits are easy to
order. All you have to do is

Dear Abby

them. Don't wait, because
supplies are limited.
DEAR ABBY: The
man I'm in love with,
"Butch," is an alcoholic.
He refuses to get help
and has become verbally
abusive. He got a DUI and
there's a warrant out for
him because he didn't fol-
low through on his court
orders. I threw him out
after he lost his job.
Butch is homeless
now and has taken up
with a homeless woman.
When he's sober he's a
totally different person,
and that's the man I'm in
love with. I'm devastated
by his actions and I want
him back.
I am so co-dependent I
cry daily about this. I do
go to meetings and I'm
trying to move on, but I
have no friends and don't
know where to start to get
a life. Butch's behavior
is out of control, and it's
only a matter of time
before he winds up in jail.
Could you please tell me
what to do? LOST IN
LOVE IN MONTANA
DEAR LOST IN LOVE:
I'm sorry you're hurting,
but pleased to know you
are going to meetings. At
some point they will help
you accept that as much
as you love the person
Butch was, for the sake
of your health and sanity
you must "let go and let
God." Your next step
should be to give yourself
less time to brood. Fill
your non-working hours
by volunteering at
a hospital, a library, a
senior citizen's center.
That's where you'll meet
worthwhile, involved
people and start building
friendships with mentally
healthy people. I promise
you the more you put into
it, the more you'll receive.


"And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better
for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye,
than having two eyes to be cast into hellfire."
- Mark 9:47.
Jesus gives us an idea of the awfulness of Hell. He
came to save us from that place. Will you accept Jesus
as your Savior? He loves you.

SHOE By MacNelly Productions


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


I HOROSCOPE
ARIES (March 21-April 19). It's onlyfun to take tests
when you think you know the answers. With this in
mind, you're careful not to challenge others in a way
that will make them feel bad or annoyed.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).You're trying to make
people's lives better. Sometimes they cooperate;
other times they don't. You won't take it personally
either way. Being in the right makes it easier for you
to keep yourego out of it.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You'll do quite a lot on
your own, but not everything. Before you ask for
oon


help, be sure you really need it. Others will find it
most satisfying to help you when that is the case.
CANCER (June 22-July 22).Your positive thoughts
are transmitted to the universe.You'll see evidence
that your transmission has been received in the
beautiful, effortless unfolding of your plans.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).You're not a miniscule part of
the cosmic whole not according to the trillions
of microorganisms living within you, and not to the
ones who love you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).You made a deal with


might think. Sure, she can be tough, but she's not
unreasonable. Besides, destiny likes you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Sometimes you feel
as though no one is listening to you.That will be
remedied today, as the influence you hold will be
obvious. Your suggestions will be taken; your orders,
followed.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You don't need a phone
to connect with the one you love. Even when this
person is at a great distance, satellites and wires
are unnecessary because you're telepathically


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).Your habits
change because your environment has changed. It's
a natural result of having to adapt to the way things
currently are. You'll like where the new habits lead.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).Yourthought
process is like television. You can't control the pro-
gramming, but you can choose what you'll watch.
And you can always change the channel.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Emotions trigger your
mind to release chemicals in your body, and every
cell that is you takes a bath in those chemicals.This


destiny, and that deal is more negotiable than you connected. is why you should do what makes you happy.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You'll weave a lineup
of happy thoughts into an overall positive attitude.
Who can resist your very attractive and amenable
personality?They'll respond positively in return.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY(May 16).You'll love the
attention showered on you over the next six weeks.
Also note thatjust because something didn't work
out last year doesn't mean it won't workout at all.
In July, you get a second chance and make it work
for you. November and February show domestic
improvements. Capricorn and Cancer people adore
you.Your lucky numbers are: 30,1, 24,38 and 18.

Opening lead: King of ?

Study the bidding and play of this
deal, then decide: Who, if anyone,
erred in the play?
North's two spades over West's
takeout double is normal by any
standards. South's three clubs was a
help-suit game try and West judged
his hand as worth competing with
three hearts. With good trump
support and help in the key suit,
North jumped to four spades, which
became the final contract.
West started with three top hearts,
declarer ruffing the third. Trumps
were drawn in two rounds, ending in
dummy, and the remaining heart was


ruffed high in the closed hand. Next
came the deuce of clubs, covered by
the nine and taken with the ace.
Reading the cards perfectly, declarer
continued with the king of clubs and
another. West won, but was forced to
lead a diamond into declare's tenace
or concede a ruff-sluff. Making four-
odd.
West could have defeated the
contract by unblocking the queen and
jack of clubs on the first two rounds
of the suit. That would permit East to
win the third round with the ten and
lead a diamond through declarer's
ace-queen, and the defenders must
collect a diamond for down one.
However, declarer could have
made the contract no matter how the
defense wriggled after the third round
of hearts is ruffed. Declarer should
run all the trumps, reducing all hands
to five cards. West must keep a heart
to guard against dummy's nine and
the guarded king of diamonds, so
must come down to only two clubs.
Now declarer cashes the king and ace
of clubs and throws West on lead
with the heart, discarding the losing
club on this trick, to force a lead into
the diamond tenace.
Since four spades can be made
with proper play, declarer must be
charged if justice is to be served.
