Indians are No. 1!

By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

Time to give Venice High
baseball head coach Craig
Faulkner and his assistants
their due.
The coach, who is in his
14th year, orchestrated a sea-
son that culminated Sunday
in the team's second state title
in the last six seasons.
Faulkner, along with
assistant coaches Jeff Callan,
Jose Velez, Josh Sinibaldi,
Rich Curcio, Brenden Curcio,
Joe Komaroski, Jeremie Cook
and Bill Scheelock, helped
guide the Indians to 24 wins
this season and the Class 7A


state title with a 4-2 win over
Brandon at Digital Domain
Park in Port St. Lucie.
Faulkner is no stranger to
states, having guided the Indi-
ans to a state runner-up finish
in 1999 his first year and
the Final Four in 2001 as well
as the state title in 2007.
"We have such an awe-
some coaching staff," said
Venice junior pitcher Cooper
Hammond. "They just get
us so focused and ready to
play every single day. It's just
amazing, our coaches."
Over his 14 seasons,
Faulkner has a 282 wins and
140 losses for a .668 winning
percentage. He also has nine


20-win seasons.
"It's very satisfying," said
Faulkner, who doesn't like to
talk about himself. "You can
win it once and lot of people
never get to do it again.
Personally, it's very satisfying.
I know we have a system and
assistant coaches that are
top-notch."
With his second state title,
Faulkner is in elite company,
as only 30 schools in the entire
state have won two state titles.
"We teach more than base-
ball at Venice High School,"
said Faulkner. "We're a lot
into character and do a lot of

Venice man tied to terrorist group


By STEVEN J. SMITH
SUN CORRESPONDENT

John Thomas Wyczlinski of
Venice remains behind bars on
more than $500,000 bond in
connection with three felonies
tied to his association with the
American Front, a militia-style
white supremacist terrorist
organization that plotted
to blow up city buildings in
Orlando.
Danielle Tavernier, spokes-
woman with the State


S Attorney's office
of the Ninth
Judicial Circuit
Court of Florida
S M in Orlando, said
Wyczlinski's arrest
last week comes
on the heels of
WYCZLINSKI other recent
arrests of Ameri-
can Front members includ-
ing its leader, Marcus Faella,
and his wife on the following
felony charges:
Paramilitary training


- teaching and demonstrating
to others the use, application
or making of a firearm and
techniques capable of causing
injury or death.
Attempting to shoot into an
occupied building.
Evidence of prejudices
while committing an offense.
Wyczlinski's arrest warrant
states that Faella, of Saint
Cloud, Fla., has been plan-

Arena access road delayed, again


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

When staff learned a few
weeks ago the city ofVenice
might have nearly $1 million
available in road impact aid
and other construction monies,
they quickly moved a pending
project up the priority list.
To the dismay of Save the
Circus supporters, a road -
planned for years as an entry to
a new airport commerce park
to be built someday runs
right through the Circus Arena
property they're trying to save.


It would have essentially
killed the project, Circus Arena
foundation supporters said.
"Putting a road through the
arena without discussion is not
a proper thing to do," agreed
Mayor John Holic.
"This kind of pulls the carpet
underneath them without
council giving its support or
not ... as much as I'd like to see
improved access to the airport.
"You've got more long-range
problems (created) by putting
in a road than you do short-
term problems."
"I agree," said Council


Member Jeanette Gates. "That's
a campus. Until we decide
which way the city needs to go,
I don't want to divide it."
Council on Tuesday did
something it's not known to
do often it kicked the can
down the road. In this case, it
was welcomed with applause
from a city hall audience.
They directed staff to bump
the Circus Arena road project,
helping keep a previous coun-
cil's promise to give the Circus
Arts Foundation five years to

NEWS EDITOR

Tired of a dispute that has left
a brand-new dock unopened
since 2006, Venice City Council
voted Tuesday to direct Mayor
John Holic to negotiate an end
to the Marker IV dock standoff.
Another option is to adopt a
new ordinance giving the city
control over its own structures-
over-water permits.
Both courses of action will
be pursued simultaneously.


The issue goes back more
than a decade to when the
state and property owner John
Konecnik agreed on a land swap
giving the state land on which
the north bridge is built and
underwater rights for Harbor
Lights, among other properties.
In return, Konecnik was given
a "final permit" to build his
docks. Sarasota County, which
wasn't party to the agreement,
later balked at the 600-plus foot

Diver's death



still a mystery


By GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

VENICE -The cause of
death has not been deter-
mined in an accident that took
the life of a Punta Gorda man
scuba diving in Venice over the
weekend.
Venice police and fire
departments were called to
the scene near Sharky's on the
Pier, about 300 yards offshore


of Alhambra Road, around
2:30 p.m. Saturday after a
father, who was diving for
sharks' teeth with his son, got
separated and disappeared as
the two swam to shore.
The diver, Gerald "Jerry"
Green, 63, of Punta Gorda, was
located on the bottom in about
8 feet of water, about 50 feet
from where he was last seen,

Predators lurk within our community


By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER
When Darrion Rashard
Hart emailed the man he
thought was the father of a
12-year-old boy he wanted
to have sex with, little did
the 24-year-old know he
was actually writing to a
female North Port police
detective.
Hart, who traveled from
west Bradenton to a set-up
home in Sarasota to meet
the boy, was arrested
May 9 for allegedly using
a computer to solicit a
parent to commit a sex act
on a child and traveling to
solicit a child to commit
sex acts. Each charge car-
ries a $50,000 bond. Hart
remains in the Sarasota
County Jail.
Like Hart, 25-year-old
Kevin Ramanan allegedly


intended to meet a child
for sex acts. Ramanan
provided his email address
and phone number to a
girl he thought was 14,
who was really a Sarasota
County Sheriff's detective.
Then Ramanan drove
three hours to Sarasota to
meet the teen. The graphic
artist hasn't made it back
to Fort Lauderdale. He
remains in the county jail
on $100,000 bond.
Rashard and Hart were
two of 31 men arrested
earlier this month in the
first-of-its-kind joint sting
operation among the
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office and the North Port,
Venice, Sarasota police de-
partments, along with the
Manatee County Sheriff's
Office, the State Attorney's
Office and other members


of the Central Florida
Internet Crimes Against
Children Task Force.
Despite knowing it was
wrong to meet a 15-year-
old girl, James Masso, 38, a
general manager of an auto
group, still reportedly drove
from Naples to meet the
teen for some "great sex."
In an email to the
15-year-old, Masso asked
the girl to send him a
photo of herself. Then
he wrote back, "15, I'm
not fond of jail." But he
continued to send sexual
emails to the teen, who
was actually a detective.
He pleaded not guilty
last week and asked the
state to pay for his defense.
His request was denied. He
later posted bond.
Dr. Don McMurray, a
local psychologist, said


the trio, as well as the
others recently arrested
for soliciting teens for sex,
may exhibit a behavior
called "arrested sexual
development."
"What we would
consider a relationship
between a husband and a
wife is what a person with
arrested sexual develop-
ment is attracted to in a
prepubescent child," he
said. "A child is in their
eyes a sex object."
Some of the 31 arrested
thought they were asking
a parent, stepparent or
grandparent permission
to engage in sex acts with
their children. Some men-
tioned it was their first time
trying a sexual experience
with a teenager. Others
sent explicit emails and text
messages describing what


they wanted to do with the
child.
One man sent a photo
of himself in a towel;
another wrote in an email
about the size of his
genitals. One man, who
thought he was talking to
the guardian of an 8-year-
old, promised he could
perform sex acts in front of
the entire family, accord-
ing to a police report.
"I don't believe the
words, 'This is my first
time trying to get with a
child,'" McMurray said.
"Sex offenders are from all
walks of life. They can be
a pastor, coach, banker,
physician, a lawyer. It's not
OK if this is their first time
or 50th time if they are
misdeveloped and a child
has become the focus of
their sexual deeds."


McMurray said some
offenders actually don't
believe they are harming
the child.
"An offender might
spend months establish-
ing a friendship online or
in person with the child,"
he said. "They deny the
feeling they are doing
anything wrong."
McMurray said the
recent online sting is not
the typical sexual abuse
that occurs.
"Usually when a child is
preyed on by an adult, it's
someone who is known
to him or her," McMurray
said. "The adult can be a
favorite uncle, a neighbor
or other relative who has
developed a relationship
and then takes advantage
of the child."

Area unemployment rate continues decline in April


By BRENDA BARBOSA
STAFF WRITER
The Florida
Department of Economic
Opportunity released
its April unemployment
numbers Friday, showing
the jobless rate dipped
once again across the
state and Southwest
Florida, and prompt-
ing officials to say the
economy is gaining
momentum steadily.
But economists and
local job experts are


cautious about saying
whether the numbers
mean people actually
are getting back to work,
or whether they've just
exhausted their benefits.
According to the DEO
jobless report, Florida's
seasonally adjusted
unemployment rate
dropped from 9 percent
in March to 8.7 percent
in April, the lowest it
has been since January
2009. That's a decrease
of nearly 2 percentage
points from April 2011,


when the rate was at
10.6 percent. It is the
10th consecutive month
Florida's unemployment
numbers have fallen, the
report states.
Sarasota County report-
ed a modest decline, from
8.7 percent in March to
8.6 percent in April. That's
compared with 10.5 per-
cent in April 2011.
"The continued drop
in Florida's unemploy-
ment rate is proving our
recovery, and Floridians
are getting back to work,"


Gov. Rick Scott said in
a prepared statement.
"Employers are sure to
continue expanding and
moving to Florida, creating
jobs that help us ensure
this pattern will continue."
But Southwest Florida's
unemployment numbers
still hover above the na-
tional rate, which stood at
8.1 percent in April, and the
numbers don't necessarily
equate with people getting
back to work, experts say.
"We haven't seen it.
Our numbers haven't


fallen off," said Michelle
Mashaw, the Goodwill Job
Link Center coordinator.
In the first 13 days of
May alone, Mashaw said
the center has taken
in 33 new unemployed
clients looking for work.
"People are falling
off the rosters but that
doesn't mean they're back
to work," Mashaw said.
In fact, many of the
center's new clients
who are actively looking
for work have received
letters from the state


saying their benefits have
expired, she said.
Gary Jackson, direc-
tor of the Regional
Economic Research
Institute at Florida Gulf
Coast University's Lutgert
College of Business, said
the latest unemploy-
ment numbers while
promising are only
part of the economic
recovery story. Still,
when compared with last
year's figures, the news is
welcome, Jackson said.

DEATHS
FROM PAGE 4

Mich. Claire married the
late Harold Wolf in 1941,
and together they ran the
Sun and Sand Resort and
Sea Wolf Restaurant until
1983, when they retired to
Venice, Fla. Following the
death of her husband, she
relocated to Kobernick/

in Sarasota, where she
spent the remainder of

In addition to her
family business, Claire
also worked in radio
advertising and sales
for many years, in both
South Haven and Venice.
She was a wholehearted
participant in community
service throughout her
life, and will be remem-
bered for her enthusiastic
volunteer work in numer-
ous local organizations
in both Michigan and
Florida, most recently
the Senior Friendship
Centers, Tidewell Hospice
and Jewish Community
Center of Venice.
Friends and family
remember her as a won-
derful cook and hostess, a
marvelous storyteller and
a tireless worker. An avid
and skillful bridge player,
Claire remained com-
petitive until the last few
months of her life, in both
social and online games.
She is survived by her
three sons, Martin A. Wolf
of Columbus, Ga., James
R. Wolf of Bradenton,
Fla., and Grant S. Wolf
of Newark, Del.; and a
sister, Esther Bloch of
Palm Desert, Calif. She
is also survived by three
grandchildren.
Arrangements are by

The Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office Drug Task
Force, which includes
members of the Venice
and North Port police
departments, arrested
four people Monday
in connection with the
illegal sale of prescrip-
tion pills outside Barclay
Pharmacy in Venice.
According to an
SCSO press release, a
confidential informant
advised deputies that
a man named "Tatum"
was looking for someone
to give him $540 to
fill a prescription for
Dilaudid in exchange
for some of the pills,
and that the man was at
the pharmacy to make
the deal. Using a phone
number provided by
the informant, "Tatum"
was identified as Tatum
Shaw, 30, 100 block
Cornell Road, Venice.
At the pharmacy,
deputies saw Shaw and
Jason Sheeley, 30, 3800
block Hialeah Road,
Venice, standing by a car.
After about 20 minutes
another vehicle, driven
by Harold Slater, 50, 1200
block Hudson Road,
Venice, and with passen-
ger Cynthia Porvaznik,
25, 1600 block Bridge
St., Englewood, arrived.
Slater gave Shaw with
$540 to pay for a pre-
scription of 240 Dilaudid
pills. Shaw passed the
money to Sheeley, who
entered the pharmacy to
fill the prescription.
Sheeley returned to
Slater's vehicle, where he
provided Slater with 135
of the pills in exchange
for financing the trans-
action. Sheeley and
Shaw then exited Slater's
vehicle and all four
suspects left the area.
Venice police officers
stopped both vehicles
southbound on South
Tamiami Trail. Searches
resulted in the seizure of

held without bond in
the Sarasota County Jail.

Still making it better after 35 years


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

"I have been here 25
years. The goal is to serve
25 percent of the west coast
of Florida, and currently
65 percent of our new
customers are from refer-
rals," said Bill Swanson Jr.,
president and CEO of Tri
County Air Conditioning &
Heating Inc., 1080 Enter-
prise Court, NorthVenice.
"The bigger we get, the
bigger we will become, and
eventually have satellite
offices in Fort Myers, St.
Petersburg, West Pasco and
South Naples, all centrally
controlled from this head
office, eventually with a
paperless operation."
An entrepreneur, his
father, Bill Swanson Sr.,
started on his own in 1977
in Sarasota, installing new
air conditioners in manu-
factured homes in the Bay
Indies, Lake Village and

33 years'service; Bill Swanson, president and CEO; and Melodye
and Bob Kidman, comfort care managers.


Spanish Lakes communi-
ties. Soon he was working
weekdays, and on week-
ends selling manufactured
homes in Port Charlotte.
In 1979 he moved the
business to Colonia Lane
in Nokomis, but it was
another eight years before


Bill Jr. would join it. Grow-
ing up in St. Petersburg
with his mother his
parents were divorced -
he only knew his father,
a little, having worked
summers for him for five
years. After obtaining an
engineering degree at the


University of Florida, he
joined a company and
designed air-conditioning
systems for hospitals.
By 1987 Tri County had
grown to 13 employees and
his father needed help, so
Bill Jr. became an installer,
then a service engineer.
In 1989 a customer asked
him to design a system for
a new house. That started a
new company division.
When the mobile home
business dropped off in
the late 1980s, with most
communities filled and no
new ones starting, business
fell from 600 to 100 jobs.
"Our work on single-
family homes designing
systems was increasing
and dad's mobile home
business was decreasing,"
said Swanson. "We opened
a new department to begin
replacing units in mobile
homes built in 1970s.
"The company was
growing, we were


advertising and created
the jingle, 'No matter what
the weather, Tri County
makes it better,' soon
becoming known in the
community," he said.
By the early 1990s the
company had grown to
23 service techs and four
installation trucks as
business expanded 15 to
25 percent annually, so in
1996 the company moved
to NorthVenice.
Swanson said that he
and his wife had gradu-
ated from college and
intended to go into the
ministry, but decided to
remain in this area and
put their religious beliefs
to work in the business.
"I told my father I
wanted Tri County to be
the largest service depart-
ment on the west coast of
Florida because people
can trust it," he said, "and
I want it to be a place
where we can support


the mission and raise the
mission. He looked at me
as though I was speaking
another language and said
proudly, 'Son, I am glad
you are here.'"
"I was guided to go with
my family in 1995 to Russia
when the wall came down
for a year as missionaries,
where we taught teachers
a curriculum of Christian
ethics and morality," he
said. "Dad ran Tri County
with managers and I wrote
a 12-month business plan.
His health was failing and
my wife got pregnant, so
we returned to the busi-
ness. Dad retired in 1996
and died at 63 years, four
years later."

Manufacturing coming back from dark decade


By JOSH SALMAN
BRADENTON HERALD

The recession has taken its toll
on Southwest Florida's manu-
facturing industry, eating away
40 percent of the sector's total
jobs over the past decade.
But the North Port-Sarasota-
Bradenton metro area has recov-
ered faster than the national
average during the last two
years, with high-tech production
leading the way.
Although manufacturing has
seen a modest resurgence across
the U.S., the industry is still
deflated from its prerecession
days in every category tracked in
a new study released recently by
the Brookings Institution, which


looked at manufacturing trends
in each of the nation's metro
areas.
With 12,801 total manufactur-
ing jobs, the sector currently rep-
resents 5.2 percent of Sarasota-
Manatee County's entire labor
force, the 82nd highest ratio in
the country, according to the
report.
Most of the job losses came
as a result of the boat-building
industry, which had a heavy
presence here that basically
evaporated. Other sectors of
manufacturing have fared much
better.
The Brookings report noted
a 5.7 percent increase in local
manufacturing jobs from the
first quarter of 2010 to the fourth


quarter of 2011.
The national average during
that time was 2.7 percent, with
the biggest gains coming in
major metro areas across the
Midwest, Northeast and Central
Mountains regions.
The top manufacturing
industries in the North Port-
Bradenton metro area were
fabricated metals, which com-
prise 19.6 percent of the sector's
total workforce, and food, which
represents another 10.9 percent.
In the past, boat manufacturing
has been prominent on that list,
but the Great Recession pushed
many of those producers and
their ancillary businesses to areas
like North Carolina, which at the
time were offering lofty incentives


and fewer corporate taxes.
The trend was never more
evident locally than in 2008,
when Wellcraft and Hydro-
Sports closed their Manatee
County plants and in 2010 when
Donzi Marine left.
Since 2000, the two-county
region has lost 40.6 percent of
its total manufacturing jobs a
sector that pays more than the
countywide average wage.
At last count, average wages
in manufacturing in Sarasota
and Manatee were $50,319 a
year, records show.
But in the more recent picture,
a broad scope of manufactur-
ers are expanding or relocating
to the area largely due to the
transportation system, ability to


operate year-round under the
sun and the technology corridor
developing along Central Florida,
said Jennifer Behrens-Schmidt,
president of the Sarasota Mana-
tee Manufacturers Association.
One example is Sun Hydrau-
lics, which has been expanding
at a rate of about 20 percent
annually since 1972.
Sun Hydraulics designs and
manufactures high-performance
hydraulic cartridge valves used to
control force, speed and motion.
The company's latest addi-
tion comes in the form of a new
$16 million expansion plan
calling for 60,000 square feet of
manufacturing space and 16,000
square feet of office space at a
new Tallevast Road facility.

New online procurement system debuts


By CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

Now that eProcure, the
new Sarasota County pro-
curement system is online,
both vendors and ordinary
citizens will get a chance
to review its contents.
The new system is free to
users, county Procurement
Official Mark Thiele said
Friday. Citizens who want
to review purchasing details
about county projects can
access the information in
the same way vendors can,
by going to http://scgov.net
and checking "Solicitations"
on the Procurement page.
EProcure's biggest
asset, Thiele said, is its


ability to communicate
with vendors when
requests go out for bid,
vendors are going to be
notified automatically.
"We're going to email
you, put it in your face,"
Thiele said of outreach
efforts.
Development of the
new system cost the
county $31,000 several
years ago for software
and the time spent set-
ting it up by the county's
Enterprise Information
Technology Department.
The new system replaces
the proprietary Demand-
Star system, which requires
vendors to register and
charges users an annual


fee to access its solicita-
tion information, such
as requests for proposals
or for bids. DemandStar,
which the county began
using about 10 years ago,
notifies vendors worldwide
about upcoming solicita-
tions, but local businesses
that are not DemandStar
members often do not
know about county
solicitations.
Thiele said the goal is
to simplify the process
and to make it less
intimidating for small
local businesses.
"It not only will lower
costs, but it will make it
simpler (to bid)," he said.
The county's free,


single website will offer
county solicitations,
policies, procedures and
forms. Vendors that want
to participate in any
solicitation opportunities
of $3,000 or higher must
register with eProcure. So
far, Thiele said, about 500
vendors have registered.
Thiele said there is an
easier submission process.
For instance, vendors who
register need only need to
submit such information
as whether they qualify for
local preference credit one
time.
The program also
will automatically carry
forward the math on a
bid and find mistakes.


"We want transpar-
ency," Thiele said of the
process. "We're proud of
this (system). It's not just
good business but best
practices."
The idea of creating
eProcure predates prob-
lems in the Procurement
Department by a year or
two, but county officials
decided it would be best
to roll it out while the
department is imple-
menting more than 200
recommendations from
the National Institute for
Governmental Purchasing
and other agencies.
The county's purchas-
ing system came under
scrutiny last year after


the March 2011 arrest of
county employee Rodney
Jones on corruption
charges. Jones was charged
with accepting more than
$15,000 in cruises, hotel
stays, gift cards and other
kickbacks from aWelling-
ton-based manhole reha-
bilitation company while
he was a project manager.
Since Jones' arrest, he and
nine other county employ-
ees have either resigned,
retired or been fired,
including former county
administrator Jim Ley, as a
result of various probes. At
least four of the departures
were related to credit-card
misuse.

County communications in transition


By PETE BISHOP
SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER SUN

County officials have
decided they will not wait for a
permanent director of com-
munications to arrive before
replacing the department's
interim head.
Crystal Pruitt has been
replaced by new interim
director Liz Nolan, manager
of Selby Public Library in
the Sarasota County library
system, said Deputy County
Administrator Bill Little.
The county also posted an


advertisement Friday after-
noon seeking a permanent
director and could make that
hire by August.
"It's just short-term," said
Little of this week's reorganiza-
tion. "We still want to take
advantage of Crystal's skill sets,
and it's really trying to get us in
a good position to go into the
future."
Pruitt has been with the
department since 2006 and
was named interim director
last October, replacing Susan
Scott, a former deputy county
administrator.


Pruitt's current salary is
$65,728. While she was interim
director of communications,
she received a pay additive -
acting pay of $252.80 per
pay period (every two weeks),
which stopped at the end of
April.
Little said Pruitt will now be
able to concentrate on com-
municating with news media.
"She's a valuable asset in
terms of media relations,
particularly in regard to
television," Little said. "She
will continue to help us engage
with the community."


Nolan, who county officials
say has "demonstrated great
expertise in managing people
and teams through transi-
tions," has been employed
by the county since 1988.
Her annual salary is $66,913.
She will receive acting pay of
$257.36 per pay period while
serving in the interim role.
The county will accept
applications for the perma-
nent director position until
June 15. The new position,
director of communications
and civic engagement, has a
listed salary range between


$70,000 and $115,000.
Little said County Admin-
istrator Randall Reid wants to
develop a communications
department with a broader
scope.
"It's a change from more of
a manager level position to
a director level position that
reports directly to Mr. Reid,"
Little said. "The new director
will have a little higher level of
responsibility."
The new director will also
help determine whether the
department will need more
employees, Little said.

Florida schools grapple with FCAT


By NEIL HUGHES
SUN CONTRIBUTOR

Editor's note: First in a
series on Florida's stan-
dardized testing to measure
performance.

It's an old belief that
good neighborhoods have
the best schools.
But maybe it should
be the other way around:
The best schools are a
product of their good
neighborhoods.
Today, we rank
Florida's schools by a
statewide standard-
ized test known as the
Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test.
The FCAT is meant to
show how our students
are doing, and how good
a job our teachers have
done to educate them.
The state of Florida
doesn't provide FCAT
scores by income bracket,
but the scores of poverty-
stricken students can be
isolated based on those
who qualify for free and


reduced-price lunch
programs.
Comparing the FCAT
scores of students who re-
ceive lunch discounts with
those who do not shows a
significant disparity that's
particularly poignant dur-
ing the current recession,
as school districts serve re-
cord numbers of students
in poverty, and even many
who are homeless.
For example, in last
year's eighth-grade FCAT
reading test, the mean
developmental score of
low-income students in
Charlotte, DeSoto and
Sarasota counties was
1,863, compared to a score
of 1,998 for students who
did not receive discounted
lunches.
In fact, the average score
of students who did not
receive discounted lunches
was nearly 40 points
higher than those of white
students as a whole in
Southwest Florida.
It's the same story in
math for the same three
counties: Last year, about


92 percent of 10th-grade
students who did not
qualify for free or reduced
price lunches received a
passing grade, better than
an average of 87 percent of
white students, 75 percent
of Hispanic or Latino
and 61 percent of black
students.
Not surprising, schools
with a higher number of
poorer students usually
have worse FCAT scores.
One reason for the point
differential is that upper-
demographic schools tend
to have greater parent
involvement, which is one
of the most important
determinants in a student's
success, said Charlotte
County School Board
member Lee Swift.
The fact that schools are
ranked based on student
FCAT scores and can be
indirectly penalized for
having a lower-income
student population is a
major flaw in the current
system, in the eyes of Swift.
"The FCAT was never
really designed to do all of


the stuff that's been hung
off of it in the last number
of years," he said. "It's a
test, and it's a snapshot
of what's going on in the
school in a given day.
There are a lot of technical
problems with the FCAT."
In Sarasota County, the
lunch program for under-
privileged students is being
used by about 48 percent
of the population. That's
the highest it's ever been,
said Caroline Zucker, chair
of the Sarasota County
School Board.
She also recently learned
that there are almost 1,200
homeless students in her
school district.
"When you think about
Sarasota County, you
don't tend to think about
that large a population
of homeless students,"
Zucker said.
Another factor that
standardized tests like the
FCAT don't take into con-
sideration is the mobility
of students. At DeSoto
County High School,
28 percent of students


don't complete a full year
there, and end up starting
or finishing the school
year somewhere else.
Linda Waters, associ-
ate director of student
services in DeSoto
County, said that one
local elementary school
had 20 children enroll in
just one single day after
Thanksgiving last year.
"It's tied to the econo-
my," Waters said. "We see
families working longer
hours, struggling for just
the basics. In some cases,
the parents lost their jobs,
and the only one who
was employed was a high
school student."
Though the socioeco-
nomic status of a student's
family is one of the stron-
gest predictors of how a
student will perform both
in the classroom and on
a measuring stick like the
FCAT, schools and teachers
will be graded and ranked
regardless of the cards they
have been dealt.
In that respect, FCAT
scores are not so much


about how good a job
Florida's teachers are do-
ing, but instead the family
support a student has,
the opportunities that are
afforded to them, and the
financial stability they are
provided at home.
Swift said the number
of truly bad teachers he
has encountered in his
decades around education
is "infinitesimally small,"
suggesting FCAT scores
don't accurately gauge
teacher performance.
"The kids that struggle
the most are the ones that
have a lot of stuff going
on in their lives outside
of school," Swift said.
"Teachers have kids for 30
to 35 hours a week, and
yet they are supposed to
make up for everything
that happens all of the rest
of the child's life. That's
unfair."
Next: Local officials
have their own thoughts
on what should be done
- and what can be done
- to improve how FCAT
measures performance.


Park name submissions sought


FROM SARASOTA COUNTY

Sarasota County Parks
and Recreation has
extended the deadline
to Friday, May 25, for
submitting prospec-
tive names for one of
the county's recently
acquired sites that will be
home to a future park.
The Myakka River/
U.S. 41 site is located at
9083 South Tamiami Trail
in Venice and was the
subject of a recent public
input session at which
residents provided ideas
on what they would like
to see in the park.
"We involve the
community in as many
steps of the process as
possible," said Parks
and Recreation Senior
Planner Jessica Ritter.
"The planning process


is not for everyone, but
the park-naming process
is very popular because
it gives residents a sense
of ownership and helps
create a connection
between the park and the
community."
Selection criteria
and instructions on
how to submit names
can be found at http://
www.scgov.net/
ParksandRecreation/
Parks/ MyakkaRiverPark.
asp.
The proposed name
must be accompanied by
an explanation, with any
necessary documenta-
tion, describing how the
proposed name satisfies
the selection criteria.
A name selection
committee will review
the submitted names and
present a recommended


name for consideration
to the Sarasota County
Commission in July.

the intent to provide pub-
lic access to the Myakka
River, as well as a variety
of recreational opportuni-
ties such as picnicking,
wildlife observation and
nonmotorized boating
activities.

OUR VIEW



Who thinks texting while driving is OK?


Here's the thing about talking or
texting on a cellphone while
driving: It's just so darn easy.
It's just so darn convenient. It's just so
darn tempting.
You're in the car. Just pick up the
phone. It's sitting right there on the
passenger's seat, or in your purse.
Simple. Right there.
Just call ahead and let them know
you're on the way. Quick, find out
where you're supposed to meet for
dinner.
Or you can just keep in touch,
maybe see what your sister or girl-
friend is up to. What's for lunch. How
the kids are doing. Find out what color
your friend decided on for the kitchen.
Granite countertops? Hot dogs or
steaks for the barbecue Saturday?
Simple. Just a phone call.
Or check in with work. Did Mr.
So-and-so call back? Any new orders?
Make the call. Or text.


After all, you are not really doing
anything anyhow. It's dead time. Bor-
ing. You're just driving a car from here
to there. Commuting back and forth
to work. On a long drive to the airport.
Headed out alone on the interstate to
visit your mom. Coming back from a
meeting.
Nothing to do but drive from here
to there. Put the car in drive and hit
the accelerator; touch the brakes
now and then. Keep one hand on the
wheel and use the other to call or
text.
No big deal. It's nothing but down
time. It's so darn easy and convenient
and tempting to be able to get some-
thing important done.
That's the problem. It's so darn
easy and we are so accustomed
to multi-tasking. On one level
we know it is dangerous behav-
ior navigating a heavy vehicle
at varying speeds alongside other


somewhat-unpredictable vehicles
and obstacles like pedestrians and
trees is not really "doing nothing."
But that's a generality. Individually,
at any given moment, we feel much
more confident about our own ability
to overcome the laws of chance.
We are overconfident. We've done it
before and we can do it again.
And it is just so easy and conve-
nient. That is why we see so many
other people doing it, why we our-
selves do it when we're bored and
need to make a call and the cellphone
is sitting there within reach. And that's
why so many of us will continue to do
it unless someone in authority the
state, in this case eventually tells us
we cannot.
Maybe next year.
The best the Legislature could
muster this year was a bill to ban
texting while driving sponsored by
Sen. Nancy Detert, R-Venice, that


passed the Senate by an overwhelm-
ing 34-4 margin. Gov. Rick Scott gave
it a thumbs up. The House, though,
sat on it, and the measure died.
As we've noted before, this is a
relatively weak initiative. It bans
texting only, not other cellphone use.
It would have allowed police officers
to impose a $30 fine for a nonmoving
violation if they saw someone texting.
But it was something. It was a start.
We had hope that Florida would have
joined 37 other states with some sort
of text-ban law.
A text-ban falls into the no-brainer
category. But holding a phone to
your ear and talking while you drive
merrily along is dangerous too. You
see it all the time. It's unhealthy.
But its easy and convenient. And we
are unlikely to stop doing it unless
someone stops us.
That's what laws do.
It's also what crashes do.


Congrats all around


Well, it is definitely a week
for congratulations.
First off, the Venice Gondolier
Sun would like to congratulate
all the seniors who over the
next two weeks will get their
high school diploma. Surely
this is the first in a long list
of accomplishments you will
achieve during both your
professional and personal lives.
As you go through your next
journey, whether it is higher
education, military service
or jumping right into today's
work force, always remember
the foundation that is your
high school education. Cher-
ish the memories, forget the
grudges, thank your teachers
and go on to the next phase
with enthusiasm, remember-
ing your community is behind
you in all you do.
Congratulations, seniors!
Walk proud, enjoy the moment
and make sure you are extra
safe out there on graduation
night. Hopefully, we will see
you all at Project Graduation.
A group of individuals who
can sacrifice personal gain or
interest for the greater good of
the team can do extraordinary
things. The Venice High School
baseball team did just that this
year and brought home the
State Championship.
Perry Pentz and I spoke of
this team often. As the play-
ers progressed this season,
we were impressed how the
pitching got better and amazed
how obstacles were overcome
through pure effort. Obviously,
this is a group of young men
who never failed to believe in
themselves and, more impor-
tant, have a strong belief in
those around them on the field
and their coaches.
The feeling of accomplish-
ment will last forever for
that day, that moment in time,
you, the Venice High School
baseball team, proved you
were the best. You just have
to love that; this community
certainly does. The Venice
Gondolier Sun sends our
congratulations to the coaches,
the players, the faculty and
the rest of the population at
Venice High School you got


yourselves a state champion!
Congratulations to those
folks who put together and
host Project Graduation. I
am pleased to report that this
group is prepared and ready
to have a great event and that
local businesses have come
through to ensure the night will
be entertaining. Thank you to
all who make this night special.
Memorial Day is coming up,
and we remember those who
sacrificed their lives to ensure
I could write this column
today. Equally, we offer thanks
to those among us who have
served or currently serve us
with the same commitment as
our forefathers.
Many of these men and
women have stood on guard
in faraway places in order for
us to sleep soundly at night;
many young men and women
stood guard last night and will
take their shift again tonight
to protect the freedom we so
dearly value.
Whether or not we agree
with the cause, conflict or war;
whether or not we agree with
the leaders who chose to move
our military into harm's way;
and, finally, whether or not we
agree as a nation we should
police outside our borders; the
one thing that is consistent
while we at home disagree is
that countless young men and
women choose to serve us
knowing that their lives are at
risk.
A thank-you is not enough,
but for most of these people
who have served or serve
today, that's all they seek. Take
a moment over the holiday
weekend and think of those
you know who have served;
give them a thank-you. All
have earned it.
This is a big boating week-
end, so I think it's a good
opportunity to remind all of
you about the Christmas Boat
Parade. Our goal is to have 100
boats and we are getting close
to 25 percent of the way there.
If you go to www.venice
christmasboatparade.com and
register your boat, and you are
a brand-new participant, we
have a person who will cover
your registration fee. So, you
are in the parade for free if
your entry is complete before
Memorial Day. Come on Venice
- 100 boats would make a
heck of a splash on YouTube.
Finally, all of us here at the
Venice Gondolier Sun wish you
a safe and happy Memorial
Day weekend.

Tim Smolarick is publisher of
the Gondolier Sun.

Pro-dog. I'd like to sound off
about the tougher doggie rules.
I'm a new resident in the area
and moved here because it was
reported to be a dog-friendly
town. Now I'm learning that
you're planning to close access
on Venice Avenue. It's seems to
me that an alternative ought to
be considered, or a legal chal-
lenge ought to be made as to
why a table on a public street
can be called a restaurant. A
dog is no dirtier than a human
and my dog is quiet and well-
behaved and never touches the
table or the waitress' hands.
I see no reason why the rule
should be challenged. It might
be fun for the Humane Society
to look into why the dogs are
being discriminated against.
Preserve preserve. We feel
another location other than
Pinebrook Park should be
selected for the Challenger
baseball field. The preserve
would be forever lost for the
city of Venice. The sound, noise
and lights will be disturbing
for the residents as well as the
wildlife. The preserve is one
of the few remaining natural
habitats left for city residents.
Give me shelter. Good to
see the new multi-storyVenice
High School rising from the
ground. It will serve the public,
which is paying for it, as a nice,
secure place to go in the case
of an emergency. Schools are
often used for shelters because
of the nature of the building -
lots of open space, restrooms,
cooking facilities, etc. The new
grade school next to the new
high school can house taxpay-
ers also during emergencies.
The new high school is approxi-
mately a $100 million project
and counting. Surely the facility
is going to be used as a shelter.
Are we right, school board,
emergency management folks,
city of Venice management,
Sarasota County Commission,
county management staff? A
new performing arts center at
the new high school can have
groups there playing festive
music during emergencies.


Let 'em


Have It
Folks, when an emergency is
being declared, get to the new
Venice High School and the
new Venice grade school. We're
sure the emergency manage-
ment folks will be there with
open arms. See you there. After
all, we taxpayers paid for it.
Consolidate. Our one
council member is so hot on
saving money. Look at the
fire department. The city lost
its fire chief last month, two
fire fighters this month and
a higher-paying officer later
this year. Please, please, look
into consolidating fire service
with the county. The city is
looking to hire a new chief, so
do it before it is too late. This
would be an excellent time to
do this, with next year's budget
hearings coming up and union
negotiations this summer.
Privacy. I am terribly, ter-
ribly ashamed of the reporter
on Police Beat who talks about
someone's mental health
issues and goes on to describe
patient behavior and medica-
tions given. This is very private
information and whoever
did this should be terribly
ashamed and reprimanded.
People's choice. Dear Mr.
Daniels: I hear you are new to
the community, so I thought I'd


like to give you a little local his-
tory. In reading about holiday
overtime for trash collection,
you don't know why this is
done. Well, years ago there used
to be a city manager named
Marty Black and he found out
that the No. 1 complaint from
citizens was the lack of twice-
a-week pickup at holidays for
the people who had a Monday
pickup schedule. He instituted
the Monday pickup for holidays
because that's what the people
in town wanted. So, anytime
you need any information
on the history of the town, I
suggest you talk to someone
who has been here more than
a couple of weeks and they will
be more than glad to fill you in
on the history.
Shocked. I'm calling about
veterans night at the high
school baseball field. I opened
the paper Wednesday morn-
ing and there was nothing. It
was a magnificent effort that
the high school went through.
The people responsible for
it should be commended
for what they did. There was
financial aid to wounded
war veterans. There were
veterans fromWorld War II all
the through to Iraq who were
honored that night, and your
paper actually covered nothing
that I can find. I'm shocked!

Volunteers make all the difference


"Volunteers are paid in
six figures: S-M-I-L-E-S."
- Gayla LeMaire
All Faiths Food Bank
has seen plenty of smiles
on the faces of children,
teens and families in
the South County area,
where before those
smiles might not have
been as forthcoming.
This is in large part
thanks to the generous
volunteers and com-
munity members whose
hearts and passion
to help those in need
led them to work with


All Faiths Food Bank's
children's programs to
brighten the days of
those who sometimes do
not have a lot to smile
about.
All Faiths Food Bank,
in partnership with many
wonderful nonprofits
and schools in the
South County area, runs
four distinct children's
programs to help fill
unmet needs in our
community. With a small
staff of just over 20, these
desperately needed out-
reach programs are only
possible with the extra
helping hands of caring
community members.
The Cooking Matters,
Growing Healthy Kids,
BackPack Kids and Kids'
Caf6 programs help
ensure our children
grow up to be healthy
and nourished, with the
knowledge and skills to


lead healthy lives well
into adulthood.
With the support of
South County volunteers,
these programs have
thrived.
In the past year, 185
children and families
have benefited from the
Cooking Matters Program.
Volunteer-led classes have
benefited those served
by the Mental Health
Community Center,
the Rialto Goodwill,
Oak Park South School,
Laurel Civic Association,
Atwater Elementary and
Lamarque Elementary.
These 185 participants
learned how to cook
healthfully, eat healthfully
and shop healthfully, on a
small budget.
Volunteers have also
lifted up the Growing
Healthy Kids Program in
the South County area
from a program that


served only half as many
children and families
just six years ago. Today,
928 children and families
in the South County
area, including 285
children and families in
Venice alone, are able to
participate through our
partnership with sixVen-
ice area preschools and
10 preschools in North
Port and Englewood.
Volunteers with a passion
for children adopt a
preschool and visit that
preschool once a month
for the length of this
seven-month nutrition,
fitness, healthy snack and
gardening program.
The BackPack Kids
Program could not oper-
ate without the aid pro-
vided by volunteers. The
South County commu-
nity has rallied around
the plight of the schools
and families in need to


ensure that within the
span of just one year,
every school in Venice
has been "adopted" and
can benefit from this
program.
The BackPack Kids
Program ensures that
children receive nourish-
ing food on the week-
ends and during school
holidays, when they do
not have the great benefit
of free or reduced-price
school meals. Volunteers,
faith-based groups, gated
communities, civic orga-
nizations and more have
come together to adopt
these schools fund-
raising to get the money
needed to provide the
backpacks, packing the
backpacks and delivering
the backpacks to the 396
children at South County
schools for these chil-
dren to take home with
them on Fridays.


On behalf of all of the
staff and the board of
directors at All Faiths
Food Bank, thank you
volunteers. You mean
everything to us and to
the children, families and
adults who benefit from
your selfless dedica-
tion to help those less
fortunate.
The need for volun-
teers is still great, and we
welcome with open arms
everyone interested and
able to give a few hours
of their time.
Please contact me at
941-379-6333 or collins@
allfaithsfoodbank.org for
more information about
volunteering and how
volunteers have helped
change lives in our
community.

Paging Dr. Google
Editor:
Been living here in Venice


for seven years. Will just be
hitting 52 this June. I am
active and very much into
sports. Prior, lived in Fort
Lauderdale for 14 years and
then prior, born and raised
in Chicago Ill. Played tennis,
football and then rugby in
college in Minnesota.
The other day I went to
my M.D. in Venice, whom I
have been going to see since I
moved here from Fort Lauder-
dale. He asked me a strange
question: "Hey Ken, why are
you on all these hard drugs?
atenolol, Zocor, Cialis and
indapamide tabs."
Boy, that was odd. I said
to him, "Dr. J., let's pretend
that I am here for the first
time and you tell me what
medicine I should be on." He
said, "Well, take your blood
pressure medicine for three
months and make another
appointment."
That was the last time I will
see Dr. J.


I am now on Internet
medicine. I can Google my
symptoms and then prescribe
what I need to ensure that no
M.D. will just pick up where
someone left off from another
office.
I come from a family of
doctors. My dad was an
orthopedic surgeon Dr.
Kenneth Tower Hubbard,
M.D., and he invented the
total hip replacement. My
brother, Dr. Stephen Wel-
lington Hubbard, M.D., is
one of the very few flight
surgeons for the U.S. Air
Force. He was a captain in
the Air Force and is now an
ER doc.
I think that medicine needs
to be re-evaluated. I ques-
tion whether we can go to
the Internet and prescribe
our eventual outcome for
survival.

CHAMPIONSHIP

Three-run

fourth powers

Venice to

second title

By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR
The Venice High baseball
team lined up along the first
base line Sunday at Digital
Domain Park in Port St. Lucie
to cap the season with one
final salute to their No. 1 fan
and season's inspiration.
The Indians, who had Col.
Jack Dundas' name stitched on
their hats at the beginning of
the season, had just finished it
by capturing the Class 7A state
championship.
The Indians used a three-run
fourth inning to break a 1-1 tie
and the pitching of sophomore
Brandon Elmy and junior Coo-
per Hammond in a 4-2 victory
to claim their second state title
in the last six seasons.
The Indians won the Class
5A state title in 2007.
"This has been the year
that we've been saluting what
kind of guy he was," said
Venice High head coach Craig
Faulkner. "Purple Heart and
Medals of Honor. Not just him,
but our military. We just use it
as our theme. These kids have
never been to war themselves
and never had to fight. We
wanted to make them real-
ize that people every day are
fighting for our freedom. We
just wanted it for Jack Dundas,
who came all the time (to our
games)."
The idea to line up was the
teams'.
"It was nice," said Faulkner
about the salute to Dundas,
who passed away last year.
"That is what the kids came up
with. The kids thought it was
a big thing and I think it was.
Pretty special."
Venice had to come from
behind again.
"Very exciting for us," said
Faulkner. "These guys are quite
a focused group. We had a
tough road. We didn't win our
district because our district
is tough. We were on the road
every time, so these guys were
a very focused bunch. Didn't
matter to them. They come to
play every day.
"I am very proud of these
guys. That was our theme all
year long if we can get out
of our district, we will go all
the way. That was the toughest
thing, was to get out of district."
This is the school's fifth
overall team state title two
in baseball, two in volleyball
and one in football.
"Always felt it was possible,"
said Faulkner. "It's been a great
year for these kids. Overcame a
lot of adversity. A lot of injured
players. Always felt the talent
was here. They are quite a
group of young men."
Elmy, a sophomore who
worked on his pitching in a
couple of junior varsity games
this season, came through on

years.


the biggest stage.
Making just his fourth start
of the season, he allowed six
hits but only two runs in 4 /3
innings with two strikeouts.
"I thought I did really well,"
said Elmy. "Last time I tried
to get all strikeouts against
Manatee and they started
shelling me early. I started
pitching (today) to contact and
it worked out great. They were
rolling over a lot of baseballs."
"Brandon Elmy is a stud on
the mound," said Faulkner.
"Just a power game. He came
in with a lot of pressure. This is
big pressure for a sophomore
and it didn't stun him at all. He
was right on."
"Try and not to get too
jumpy," said Elmy about
pitching the biggest game. "Just
keep my composure and stay
calm as much as I can."
Tied at 1-1, Venice took
advantage of two infield hits
and a two-run error to grab a
4-1 lead by scoring three runs
in the top of the fourth inning.
Elmy led off with a walk.
Nick Longhi hit a high chopper

to shortstop and beat it out
for an infield single. Courtesy
runner Ryan Miller was already
at second by the time the
shortstop fielded the ball.
Kevin Guthrie's sacrifice bunt
moved Miller to third base and
Longhi to second. Michael
Iorio walked to load the bases.
Rex Ingerick hit a high chopper
to second base, scoring Miller.
The throw to first was late, so
Ingerick was safe on the infield
single. A grounder to the
pitcher forced Longhi at home.
With the bases still loaded,
Michael Rivera hit a chopper to
Brandon third baseman Tyler
Raymond, who bobbled it,
then threw wildly wide of first
base, scoring Iorio and Ingerick
to putVenice ahead for good.
Brandon High, which was
making its first champion-
ship appearance since 1995,
threatened in the bottom of
the fifth inning.
With one out, Jordan Feist,
Miguel Fajardo and Raymond
hit consecutive singles, with
Raymond scoring one run.
Venice brought in pitcher
Tyson Albert, who started and
pitched 1 /3 innings in the state
semifinal. Albert only threw
three pitches and one was a
wild pitch, moving the runners.
"He's one of the guys who
got us here," said Faulkner
"He's thrown well for us. He
struggled a little bit yesterday
and he wanted a chance to get
back in there. He struggled a
little bit (today).
"It's tough situation. He's not
a reliever. He's a starter, but I
wanted to give him an oppor-
tunity. When he was struggling
throwing his breaking ball
for strikes and I have Cooper
Hammond in the bullpen, I am
going to go to him."

SEMIFINAL

Venice rallies

as Hammond

shuts down

Atlantic

By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR
Just like all season, Venice
rallied from behind to pull out
a victory and pitcher Cooper
Hammond was the Indians'
final pitcher.
The Indians rallied from a
3-0 first-inning deficit to score
four unanswered runs and
edge Atlantic Community of
Delray Beach, 4-3, in the Class
7A state semifinal Saturday
afternoon at Digital Domain
Park in Port St. Lucie.
The Indians scored a run in
the first inning and three in
the second inning to take a 4-3
lead and Hammond made it
stand up. The junior pitcher
closed it out by allowing just
two hits both in the sixth
inning in 5 23 innings for his
10th win of the season.
"Cooper is tough on hitters,"
said Venice head coach Craig
Faulkner. "It's an unusual
throwing style. He throws
strikes. We are fortunate that
way."
"Disappointed, yes," said
Atlantic coach Steve Wilson.
"Always thought we would con-
tinue to fight and we did."
The win advanced the
Indians (23-8) to their third
state championship game,
against Brandon, a 7-4 winner
over New Smyrna Beach in the
other semifinal.
In 1999, Faulkner's first year,
Venice dropped a 6-4 decision
to Merritt Island. In 2007,
Venice pounded Port St. Lucie,
12-1, for its first state baseball
title.
"It was a difficult game today
when you get down three
runs," said Faulkner. "These
guys never quit. It's happened
to us all year long. They battled
back. Today was no different.
Nobody was hanging their
heads. Nobody quit. Cooper
Hammond shut the door on
them."
"I had my mindset going that
I might have to finish the game
to get it done," said Hammond.
Atlantic Community (22-9)
jumped on Venice junior right-
hander Tyson Albert in the first
inning.
An error opened the inning,
then two consecutive singles
loaded the bases with no outs.
Catcher Brad Myott followed
with a bases-clearing double
down the right field line to
give the Eagles a quick 3-0
lead.
Another single put runners
at first and third base but
Albert got out of the jam with
three straight outs a foul

5 /3 innings for the win in
the state semifinal game
Saturday against Atlantic
Community.
Hammond got a strike-
out and a ground out to
end the inning.
In the seventh inning,
Brandon went quietly.
Hammond only gave up
one single in 2 /3 innings
with four strikeouts out of
nine batters for his sixth
save of the season.
Appropriately, the final
out went to Hammond on
a ground out.
"He's closed them all
out," said Faulkner. "Coo-
per has pitched in 23 or
24 of our games (actually
22 games). That's the kind
of guy he is. He can throw
every night. He wanted to
start today. He only threw
50-something pitches
yesterday. He's pretty
efficient. He's the guy you
want in the ballgame."
In 62 innings this
season, Hammond had 76
strikeouts and only seven
walks.
"You can sit there and
preach it but if you don't
have a guy who can do it
on a regular basis, I don't
know, the day before the
state final game," said
Brandon coach Matt

play by shortstop Dalton
Guthrie) and a ground
out to second base.
Venice got a run back
in the bottom of the first
inning. Michael Rivera
led off with a walk. Grant
Banko followed with a
single into short center
field, moving courtesy
runner Danny Raynor to
second base. After a fly
out, Raynor and Banko
executed a double steal
to third and second base.
Brandon Elmy grounded
out to first base, scoring
Raynor.
Atlantic kept the pres-
sure on Albert and Venice
in the second inning.
Bobby Borque singled.
After a fly out, Jesse Kief-
fer singled. A walk to Rigo
Beltran loaded the bases.
"Albert is normally very,
very tough on hitters,"
said Faulkner. "They had
his number today."
Venice decided it was
time for Hammond and
his submarine-style
delivery.
Hammond got a fly out
to shortstop and a strike-
out to keep the Eagles off
the scoreboard.
It was the ninth one-
run win for the Indians
this season, including
three in the postseason.
In the bottom of the

turn.
Senior Kevin Guthrie,
who has signed with

something you can't prep
for. That kid is unique
and understands what he
is capable of doing and
stays within himself as
well."
Brandon (20-9) got a
run in the second inning
off Elmy.
Chris Toney led off
with a single into short
right field. After a fly out,
Michael Caballero singled
past first base, moving
Toney to third base. Ryan
Anderson grounded to


Venice first baseman Nick
Longhi, who threw to sec-
ond base for a force out.
The ball was dropped for
an error, allowing Tony
to score. Elmy avoided
further damage with two
ground-ball outs.
Venice (24-8) came
right back and tied it with
a run in the top of the
third inning.
Ingerick led off with an
infield single in the hole
between shortstop and
third base.


"That is basically
what I've been doing,
especially with these
new bats," said Ingerick,
who also had an RBI
infield single in the fourth
inning. "I learned this
year to transition, to hit
the ball on the ground. A
ball in the air is an out.
Basically, I had to use my
speed to my advantage
and get on anyway I can
- infield hits, bunts, even
counting on the defense
making errors."


Danny Raynor's sacrifice
bunt moved Ingerick to
second base. After a foul
out to first base, Ingerick
moved to third base on a
passed ball. Grant Banko
followed with an RBI
single into center field to
tie the score.
"It's not any different
for me an at-bat," said
Banko, who went 3-for-3
with an RBI in the state
semifinal. "I just try to put
the ball in play and it just
happens to get through."
"Grant is a tremendous
clutch player," said
Faulkner. "He does every-
thing right. He's a straight
A student. The last guy
to leave practice and
the first guy to pick up
something on the ground.
He just does everything
right. When you have that
kind of karma, it's going
to come back for you.
When you do things right,
good things are going to
happen to you, and he
does things right."
The bottom of the order
came through for Venice
against Brandon as
batters five through eight
collected six of the team's
eight hits. Kevin Guthrie
and Ingerick had two hits
each.
In 18 games this
season, Venice scored
four runs or fewer. In fact,
the Indians averaged 4.46
runs per game.
But that was enough at

7A state semifinal victory over Atlantic Community Saturday
afternoon.


Lightner followed with
a grounder to shortstop
Bourque, who had the
ball go under his glove for
an error, scoring Ingerick
with the tying run.
Dalton Guthrie's
sacrifice bunt moved
Lightner to second base.
A ground out moved
Lightner to third base.
Banko singled up the
middle to score Lightner
with the go-ahead and
winning run. A double
by Longhi put runners
at second and third but
a hard lineout to second
base by Elmy ended it.
"We did some good


things today," said
Faulkner. "We stole some
bases. We moved up
some runners. We got
some bunts down. We
made some great plays on
defense."
The Indians had other
chances to score.
In the fourth inning,
Venice had a runner
thrown out at home
after he tried to get in a
rundown. A runner was
stranded at third base
in the fifth inning. In
the seventh inning, the
Indians failed to score
again as a runner was
thrown out home after a

wild pitch.
"We had some
opportunities to score,"
said Faulkner. "We hit
some line drives right
at people, which is the
way it's been going for us
lately. We don't score a
whole lot of runs but we
don't give up a whole lot
of runs."
Hammond shut down
the Eagles and held them
hitless for 3 /3 innings.
The only base runner he
allowed was a hit batter
in the third inning.
Atlantic's Joey
Ohannesian led off with a
single in the sixth inning.
A sacrifice bunt moved
him to second base. An
infield single put runners
at first and third base.
Hammond got a fly out
to right field to end the
threat.
The Eagles also threat-
ened in the seventh
inning.
Beltran reached on
an error when second
baseman Michael Knott's
throw to first base got
away from him for an
error. The ball went into


Atlantic's dugout, giving
Beltran an extra base. A
sacrifice bunt by Myott
moved Beltran to third
base with one out.
Bryant then grounded
to Knott, who went to his
left and threw home as
Beltran broke for home
plate. After catcher Rivera
got the ball, Beltran went
back to third base. How-
ever, Rivera gunned him
down on a throw to third
baseman Kevin Guthrie
short of the base for the
second out.
"I saw him coming in
hard but then when he
was going back, he went
straight without hesitat-
ing," said Rivera. "I just
let it go."
"That was a difficult
play," said Faulkner. "He
was off balance with
his feet because he is
expecting a play at the
plate. He read it from the
side vision. He made the
throw without his feet
and still made an accu-
rate throw. That is a gift
he has."
"He broke to the plate,"
said Smith. "Their second


the plate because their
pitching was stellar.
Venice limited 26 of 32
opponents to four runs or
fewer.
The Indians' pitching
staff held opponents to a
2.37 scoring average.
"Every game was a
battle," said Faulkner.
"We didn't blow anybody
out. We played tough
games. We came from
behind all year. We had
one 10-run rule maybe, I
think the second game of
the year. Other than that,
we didn't win by a lot of
runs. We just won. They
found a way to win every
time. It was done by not
tremendous hitting but
timely hitting, base steal-
ing, bunting. All the little
things. They beared down
and got the big runs when
it counted."
And the runs produced
a state title.

about Rivera. "The bigger

He makes good decisions

Prepping for prom, cha-cha-cha


Teens prepare for

prom at dance studio


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER
An acquaintance bom
in kindergarten with
furtive smiles and giggles
across the playground -
grew into a life-long friend-
ship for two local teens.
Wren Wilkins, aVenice
High School senior, and
Anthony Martinez, an
Achievement Center
graduate in Sarasota, will
dance the night away


at the VHS prom Friday
night.
They prepared for the
prom by stepping up their
dance classes at Gotta
Dance studio in Nokomis.
The duo have taken
ballroom dance classes for
a year and a half.
"We take lessons once
a week. I dance at home
a lot, too," she said with a
smile.
"I don't dance anywhere
but here," he said.

telephone town hall


"They were inspired to
take ballroom dancing af-
ter seeing the movie 'Take
The Lead' starring Anthony
Banderos," said Wren's
mother, CarolWilkins.
At the studio recently,
Wren and Anthony walked
across the wooden dance
floor and grabbed hands,
then began to dance
with a cross-body lead by
Anthony in the East Coast
Swing. They switched gears
and danced the tango, with
Wren expertly performing a
cross-leg kick, and finished
their practice performance
with the cha-cha.
A basic cha-cha step
started the last dance.
"When they turn to the
side, they do a crossover
step," said Michael Mueller,
studio owner. "Then they
go into a sequence where
he leads and should be
able to do as many or as

High School prom Friday at the

few steps as he wants."
Over the years, Mueller


said he has seen an
increase in male students.
"When we started the
studio eight years ago,
there were more girls than
boys. The last few years
there have been more
boys than girls," he said.
A lot of kids prepare
for high school dances,
according to Mueller. But
youth classes are offered
at the studio only during
the school year.
"That is due to vaca-
tions, and for other
reasons students aren't as
interested in dance les-
sons in the summer. But
we are usually out in June
(youth classes) and start
up again in July, because
school starts in August.
CarolWilkins said she
is pleased with the dance
program at this studio
because it charges $10 per
class and does not require


a contract. The students
only pay when they take a
class. Dance partners can
be provided.
Wren and Anthony
are looking forward to
dancing at the prom at the
Ritz-Carlton in Sarasota.
Wren said the prom theme
is the Roaring '20s, and
she plans to wear a long,
flowing, lightweight pink
dress. Anthony will wear a
black suit and red tie.
Anthony will attend
State College of Florida
and plans to further his ed-
ucation as an undertaker.
"I don't plan on continu-
ing dance lessons," he said.
Wren will attend Mount
Holyoke College in
Massachusetts this fall and
plans to continue dancing.
"I will be dancing
forever," she said.

SUN CORRESPONDENT
The Sarasota County
School Board is looking
into holding a town hall
meeting for county resi-
dents to listen in or pose
questions by telephone.
Last week, School Board
Chair Caroline Zucker
praised the success of a
North Port telephone town
hall on May 3, in which
1,141 residents dialed in to
listen or ask questions of
City Commissioner Tom
Jones.
"They're now going to
do that on a monthly basis,
because the feedback was
so great," Zucker said.
"It was one hour and he
answered 30 questions."
In the days preceding
the North Port town hall,
City Manager Jonathan
Lewis described the tele-
phone event as "one of the
most successful ways to
get a diverse participation
from the community."
City residents with


publicly listed phone
numbers were called
and given instructions
about how to participate.
Residents who did not
receive a phone call were
given a contact number
to use anytime during the
program. There also was
a provision for Web-
submitted questions.
The moderator for the
North Port program was
Curt Cerveny of Telephone
Town Hall Meeting. The
Golden, Colo.-based
company was hired as a
consultant for the five tele-
phone events the next
one is slated for June 14
with commission Vice
Chair Mike Treubert. The
city budgeted $7,000 for
the project, but more likely
will spend about $4,000 or
$5,000, Lewis said.
School Board Member
Carol Todd agreed that
the technology is avail-
able and useful for such
an exercise, whether it is
done by phone or over the
Internet.

CITY OF VENICE MARKETING
AND COMMUNICATIONS OFFICER
Ask almost any city of Venice
Public Works employee what
the best part of the job is and
he or she most likely will say
"the people they are so
appreciative of all the little
things you do for them."
"The people" are the citizens
of Venice who benefit from
their work whether it is
garbage collection, mowing
parks, maintaining the traffic
lights, keeping the interactive
fountain safe for kids to play
in or transforming downtown
into a wonderland for the
holiday season.
If doing something that
makes people smile is the sign
of having a great job, then
Scott Marra has one of the
best. You will find him and
other Parks Division staff doing
a thorough cleanout of the
downtown interactive fountain
on the second Tuesday of every
month.
Because children play in the
water, Sarasota County Health
Department requires the water
be the same quality as water in
a public swimming pool. That
means chlorine and acid must
be kept in balance, filters and
ultraviolet tubes cleaned and
the pump maintained. Nearby
benches are power washed.
Public Works employees
visit the site daily to make sure
it is working smoothly. They
take turns being on call on the
weekends as part of the city's
compliance with the operat-
ing permit from the health
department.
The enjoyment Marra sees
on the faces of those who use
the Centennial Park Interac-
tive Fountain is part of the
paycheck.
"I see 90-year-olds from
the assisted-care living place
across the street come over
on their walkers every day to
watch the children enjoying
the water," he said. "People
come from Port Charlotte,
Cape Coral, all over to use the
fountain,"
He is proud of that one, but
that is not the only fountain
Marra oversees. There are
four ornamental fountains in
his domain: in Graser Park,

Parks Division employee Scott Marra maintains the "guts" of the Centennial

The fountain is one of the most popular places in Venice.

Marra also oversees 27

tems are evolving to a low-flow
and microsoaker system for
water conservation.
Maintenance of motors is
one of the most important
parts of his job. It includes
those on fountains and the
city's wells. The city saves
up to $1,500 per well motor

ing it. There are water sensors

on each well, but they are
not sophisticated enough to
recognize a sprinkling from a
downpour, Marra said.
"Consequently, you have
to monitor the weather and
adjust accordingly," he said.
"If the sprinkler system is shut
off during a minor shower, the
plants will get too dry."
Recently, he and other staff
members helped select the

and U.S. 41 Bypass. Other
areas he helped spruce up
include the entrance area
at City Hall, the West Miami
Avenue parking lot and near
Pinebrook and Edmonson
roads.
He enjoys that people come
to him and ask for advice,
which he is happy to share.
"They ask me what to plant
and where to plant it, for
directions and even restaurant
reviews," he laughed.
The downside?
"I'm always afraid people
will see me sort of standing
around waiting for a fountain
to fill and think I am goofing
off," he said. "It is something
you can't leave. It has to be
monitored the whole time.
"I never have a hard time
coming to work. And I go
home happy."

Who ya gonna call?

PUBLIC WORKS
BYTHE NUMBERS
The Maintenance Division has
11 employees. It is responsible for
city roads (those with the blue signs),
sidewalks, parking lots, traffic signals,
buildings and facilities, signs, carpentry,
painting and some stormwater opera-
tions support, such as cleaning out
outfalls.
The Parks Division has nine
employees who maintain more than
30 acres, including 18 city parks, street
medians, five fountains, playground
equipment, 150 trash receptacles and
more than 200 benches and picnic
tables; sustain the Tree City designa-
tion; and staff the showmobile.
The Solid Waste Division has 20
employees. They collect an average of
15,000 tons of garbage, 2,500 tons of
yard waste, 3,800 tons of recyclables,
2,000 bulk piles and 900 roll-off
Dumpsters a year.
The cost of twice-a-week garbage
collection and once-a-week recyclable
and yard waste collection to single-
family residences is $16.84 per month.
The Solid Waste/Recycling Division is an
enterprise fund supported by user fees,
which have not changed since 2006.
and the creation and mainte-
nance of more than 150 park
benches, to name a few of
their duties.
Al Conrad knows the list of
things that must be done by
heart. He has been an electri-
cal maintenance technician
since 1993.
"Some people think I just
work at City Hall," Conrad
laughs. "I work all over the city.
I'm the only one who does
what I do."
What he does is plumbing,
electrical work, carpentry and
general building maintenance
for all city-owned structures.
Although some street lights
in the city are maintained by
Florida Power & Light or Sara-
sota County, the Maintenance
Division has been responsible
for the decorative ones down-
town since they were installed
about eight years ago.
"Sometimes I come over the
bridge at 6:30 in the morning
and I see all the lights on," he
said. "It's beautiful. If one is
out, I stop and fix it. Every-
thing's gotta work or I'm not
happy."
There's always a list, he
said: "Sometimes I have to
prioritize."
Conrad's day often starts at
City Hall, where he checks on


Graser Park has one of the five city-
maintained fountains.
the chiller plant. It's finicky, for
sure.
Traffic is next. Although the
state transportation depart-
ment determines the timing,
the city's maintenance divi-
sion makes sure all the traffic
signals are functioning.
Then there is the plumbing.
One day he replaced six flap-
pers in six toilets at city hall,
checked on the jetty bath-
rooms to make sure they were
functioning, then returned to
City Hall to stop a drain pipe
leak.
Because of his work ethic,
Conrad is available after hours
when things go wrong. And
they do. One night he was
called to the Centennial Park
gazebo because a breaker had
to be reset in the middle of a
concert. Another night, all the
downtown lights went out.
Conrad came to investigate,
called Florida Power & Light
and helped get the lights back
on.
"If I can get a traffic intersec-
tion going or fix a trip hazard
on a sidewalk, I know people
will be safe," he said.
"The greatest thing about
my job is that's my office," he
said, pointing to his city van.
"I carry everything on the van
that might keep me from hav-
ing to go to the store and waste
time. I really enjoy my job."
The Public Works Depart-
ment is on the forefront when
a tropical storm or hurricane
threatens. Before a hurricane,
the Maintenance and Parks
division share the duties of
filling the city's fuel tanks,
setting up generators in case
electricity goes out and remov-
ing portable items in small
parks, downtown and at the
jetty. After the storm, they are
immediately on the streets to
remove debris and open the
roads for emergency services.

Take it away
Solid Waste Equipment
Operator Joe Misak has worked
in the Solid Waste/Recycling
division for 12 years. Misak's
journeys take him all over the
city, which he knows well. He
could do anyone's residential
route, which he might have
to do if someone is sick or on
vacation. It is part of what he
enjoys about his job. The rest
is being outdoors and being in
Venice.
"I'm proud of the good job
I do every day," he said. "We
make a lot of people happy."
If there is a stigma to being
a garbagemann," it was lost on
Misak long ago.
"At first I thought of it as
being a garbageman, but a lot
of people can't do what we do,"
he said.

'Phantom Tollbooth' a hit on Pinkerton Stage


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR
"The Phantom Tollbooth," a
Generations Series production
on Venice Theatre's Pinkerton
Stage, delights young and old
alike. The play runs through
Sunday, May 27.
Susan Nanus adapted the
play, which was based on the
book written by Norton Juster.
It is a children's adventure
story akin to Alice in Wonder-
land that is filled with lessons
learned via puns, clever witti-
cisms and bizarre events.
Milo, a bored young boy,
takes a refreshing interest in
education after receiving a
magic tollbooth and embark-
ing on a fantastic journey. He
travels in a boy-size toy car to
such places as the Kingdom of
Wisdom and Dictionopolis.
At one point, Milo (Jason
Gill) meets Dr. Kakafonous
A. Dischord (Dana Kitson),
a doctor of dissonance, who
loves loud noises. The doctor's
costume, thanks to costume
designers Nicholas Hartman
and Jonathan Hill, consists
of a white lab coat, medical


forehead lamp and shaggy
blond hair in as much disarray
as the sounds from his office.
What does the letter "A" stand
for in his name? "As loud as
possible," the doctor tells
Milo.
Along the way, Milo is
accompanied by Tock (Jes-
sica Szempruch), literally a
"watchdog," and The Humbug
(Travis Rose), who is a very
large beetle and very friendly
to Milo. In Digitopolis, the
trio meet The Dodecahedron
(Nicole Bencie), whose cos-
tume contains a 12-sided
shape with 12 faces. She
speaks with a French accent
because she can.
"On her audition sheet, she
said she speaks English, Span-
ish and French," said Candace
Artim, director. "During her
callback, I had her speak the
lines with a French accent,
which she did very easily."
Production credits go to
the children and adults who
performed their lines perfectly
and to Donna Buckalter as
scenic designer; Dorian Boyd,
sound designer; Christopher
Parrish, lighting designer;


Madeline McGrail, rehearsal
stage manager; and Shane Oss
as production stage manager.
In the end, Milo learns "what
to do with what you've learned
and why you learn things,"
said Artim. She was quoting
the character Princess Rhyme,
who summed up the meaning
of the play at its end.
Performances are Thurs-
days through Saturdays at
the family-friendly start time
of 7 p.m. and 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.
A special showing was
held Monday on the theater's
MainStage when students
were bused in from Garden,
Pine View and Phillippi Shores
schools and Loveland Center.
Another MainStage production
for some schools will be held
Friday. Interested teachers can
call the theater's director of
diversity, Kristofer Geddie, at
941-484-4033, ext. 247.

since, he has been closely
involved in helping


develop various arts and
human services projects,

ance of Sarasota County.
Kerr had a long and
successful tenure as

ice completing its second
phase project of the new

MacPherson named SCF Outstanding Graduate


PHOTO COURTESY OF STATE
COLLEGE OF FLORIDA
Jacqueline MacPherson, of Venice,
was named State College of Florida
Outstanding Graduate at spring
commencement May 5.


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR

Jacqueline MacPherson, of
Venice, walked away with more
than an associate of science
degree at the graduation
ceremony for State College of
Florida May 5.
She also took home the SCF
Outstanding Graduate Award.
"I'm absolutely thrilled
to have gotten the award,"
MacPherson said. "I am
honored as a student and as
a young professional, and I'm
very excited to get started in
my career."
Jessica Klipa, SCF public
information coordinator,
said in a news release that
MacPherson is a student who
has shown superior leadership,


academic achievement and
community service while
attending SCE
MacPherson served as a
student state secretary and
student delegate for the Flor-
ida Dental Hygiene Associa-
tion and for the SCF Student
American Dental Hygienists'
Association. She participated
in Smile Lobby Day in Talla-
hassee and volunteered at the
SCF Boys & Girls Club Giving

education.
She plans to pursue a
bachelor of applied science in
dental hygiene degree at St.
Petersburg College.
"I can work while I'm work-
ing on a bachelor's degree,"
she said.
"The two-year program
was hands-on, and I'll get
my license. Now I'll be able
to work and do a lot of my
bachelor's degree work online
because it's research and
paper-based."
Dental hygiene work is a
natural fit for the 22-year-old.
"I've always liked going to
the dentist and have always
had a good experience,"


she said. "My former dental
hygienist told me to keep it
in the back of my mind as a
career, and I did."
She started her college track
at Florida Gulf Coast Univer-
sity in Fort Myers, but returned
to her Venice home to be near
family and pursue her chosen
career.

What's Your Alternative?


DR. DAN BUSCH, DR. ERENE ROMANSKI
CHIROPRACTOR
Whether it is thought of as an "alternative"
therapy, a "complementary treatment", or
simply an effective means of promoting and
maintaining health, chiropractic is fast
becoming a staple of people's health care
regimen. According to a nationwide survey,
about 40 percent of people between ages 35
and 64 say they use complementary and
alternative medicine (CAM) for either disease


prevention, the treatment of ailments, or both.
Overall, more than one-third of all adults
surveyed indicated that they utilized some
form of alternative therapy, including
chiropractic. For men and women in their 40s
and 50s, the primary goal is to stave off
disease. The use of chiropractic, meditation,
massage, and yoga was found to increase as
people get older.

WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

AA93 AK10620KJ6685

What is your opening bid?

A If you are a firm believer that it is
a crime to open one no trump with a
good five-card major, by all means
open your major but tell us what you
intend bidding should partner
respond one spade or one no trump?
We'll just open one no trump and
worry about a rebid later.

Q 2 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

6 10 7 6 Q 8 7 6 2 0 8 5 3 96

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

A Yes, the hand might play better in
hearts, but you will be playing at least
one-level higher. Even if you play
transfer bids, we would be reluctant
to take any action. We would be
inclined to pass, although
acknowledging that many would bid
or transfer into hearts.

Q 3 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

A 95 A 9 6 5 0 KJ 96 4 1092

The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
1NT 20 ?
What action do you take?

A Defending against a diamond
contract, you can expect to take three
diamond tricks and one in hearts. You
can surely expect at least two or three
tricks from partner, probably more.
Don't make the mistake of bidding
two no trump and end up in an
unmakable game. Double.

Q 4 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

A95 VAK983 0KQ 6 AK6


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
1F Pass 3) Pass
9
What do you bid now?

A You are in slam territory, but
asking for aces won't help because of
your doubleton spade. Start with a
cuebid of four clubs and see how
partner reacts to that.

Q 5 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

SJ 7 Q 8 4 O K J 6 2 Q 1076


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


WEST
Pass


A You have a maximum for your
original response, and partner's rebid
asks how good you are. Tell him by
bidding three no trump.

Q 6 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:

4 Q976 KQ 6 Q 6 3 9 8 3

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

A While it is tempting to show your
heart stopper by bidding no trump,
partner's double promises spades and
game in spades might be there. Bid
two spades (partner should have
spades for his takeout double) and
see what develops you can still get
back to notrump if partner does not
like spades.

is also experienced by
MarkWoodford, who
collects residential
garbage. His father,
Richie Woodford, used
to do the same work
and introduced Mark to
the benefits of working
outside, doing a good
job serving the public.
Woodford remembers
growing up in Venice,
where he often rode
his skateboard over the
Pinebrook Road bridge.
He didn't realize his
dad's enjoyment of doing
things that make people
happy was rubbing off
on him.
"Some people come
out to say 'Hi,'" Woodford
said. "They are so appre-
ciative of everything you
do for them. Something
you think is routine, they
appreciate it. I always
want to work at a level
that makes them happy."
Making people happy
often goes beyond
collecting refuse and not
leaving any behind.

him to check on the

make sure he was OK."

similar experiences. One

out of his wheelchair
onto the sidewalk. His

Employees also must
be good drivers of large
trucks. It's more than
just maneuvering among
tourist drivers in winter,
watching for blind spots
when making turns and
knowing your turning
radius. It also requires
always knowing where
the truck is in relation to
the environment.
"Any time I drive under
a bridge I always double-
check to make sure the
bucket is securely down,"
Misak said. "There's not
much wiggle room. You
could easily damage the
truck and the bridge if
you make a mistake.
Same thing with electri-
cal wires. You never want
to put the bucket up
under wires."
His pre-trip inspection
is all-important to him.
"A lot of things can go
unseen if you don't look
for them," he said. "You
might have pins out
in the back gate, a tire
going flat, a missing gas
cap."

agreement, recyclables
are delivered to Sara-
sota County to prepare
for market. The city
recycles fiber to bring in
additional revenue. Last
year, that totalled more
than $100,000. The city
receives about $9,000 a
year for its collection of
an average of 60 tons of
metal.
Another chore for
collectors is the mainte-
nance and repair of more
than 800 Dumpsters,
1,000 recycling cans and
80 roll-off containers.
While many com-
munities have only
one garbage collection
per week, some such
as Punta Gorda and
Longboat Key, like
Venice, still collect twice
a week. Even so, the cost
of collecting in Venice is
lower than it is in most
communities that collect
once weekly, such as
the city of Sarasota. In
fact, except for Sarasota
County, Venice is the
lowest-price collection
in the area.

Make new Disney memories this summer


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
During a recent whirlwind three-night stay
at Walt Disney World, I was able to see
the new Dumbo ride in the Magic King-
dom's Fantasyland, check out the rooms at the
new Art of Animation Resort which opens
May 31, see the new Royal Rooms at the
Port Orleans Resort and learn why this sum-
mer promises to be a really special summer to
remember at WDW.
It had been a year since my first hard-hat
tour and glimpse of what is in store with
the expansion to Fantasyland.
To see people enjoying the new Dumbo ride,
which opened in March, and learn that its twin
will open later this year but will fly in the oppo-
site direction. So if flying one way or the other
makes you dizzy all you have to do is unwind
on the other Dumbo ride.
Also open in the new Storybook Circus area
is Goofy as a Barnstormer pilot. Consider that
Goofy might not be the barnstormer pilot one
would want to fly with unless one wants to fly
through things instead of over them.
One of the easiest ways to get to Storybook
Circus is to take the train and get off at the
Fantasyland Station. Check out the peanuts
embedded in the concrete beneath your feet.
Though not real, they add to the circus theme
of the area.
The rest of the new Fantasyland expansion
is happening behind the lengthy wall to the
right as you alight from the train. When it all is
completed you will be able to travel under the


sea with Ariel and friends; dine in a ballroom,
gallery or West Wing of the Castle in the new
Be Our Guest Restaurant; visit Gaston's Tavern;
enjoy Enchanted tales with Belle; see the Disney
princesses in Princess Fairytale Hall and ride the
Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, which features a new
ride system.
According to the release we were given,
it is "a train of vehicles that swings back and
forth, responding to every twist and turn of
the track."
Also being expanded atWDW are lodging
options with Disney's Art of Animation Resort,
opening in four phases beginning May 31,
with its Finding Nemo section. Cars will open
June 18, the Lion King section on Aug. 10 and
on Sept. 15, the Little Mermaid wing.
The idea behind the new resort which is
adjacent to the Pop Century Resort is a total
immersion experience for guests who will go
to sleep and awaken in the animated world
of these characters. The theme begins with
animated drawings on the walls of the building
in which you check in and continues to rooms,
suites and pools, with an emphasis on family
suites that sleep six in three-room, two-bath
suites with kitchenettes. Only the Little Mer-
maid wing will have standard rooms that can
hold four people. In all, the new resort will add
1,120 family suites with rates starting at $248 per
night and 864 standard rooms with rates starting
at $94 per night.
The 11,859-square-foot pool at the Finding
Nemo Resort is the largest of any at WDW.
Creatures such as a giant ray with a wingspan of

Kiwanis Veterans Garden


honors those who served


BY GORDON BOWER
LET'S GO CORRESPONDENT
Memorial Day is Monday, and there are
many ways to honor the memories of
those who answered the call to service.
Ceremonies abound in Southwest Florida, but a
garden in Punta Gorda is a great place to visit
for quiet contemplation and to thank those who
served, and died, for all of us.
The garden lies at the north end of Nesbit
Street at the entrance to Laishley Park. It can
be reached by turning north on Nesbit from
Marion, Olympia or Virginia avenues, the three
main east-west thoroughfares in Punta Gorda.
Built in 1996 by the Punta Gorda Kiwanis, it is
anchored by a large, well-landscaped octagonal
gazebo overlooking a quiet pond and offering
views of the park, the Peace River and the Baron
Collier Bridge.
At its entrance is a large brick wall containing a
Punta Gorda Historical Society mural titled "Lest
We Forget, in which Liberty, draped in an American
Flag, opens a Pandora's box from which leaps
vignettes of all the conflicts our nation has been
involved in. A white dove delivers a yellow ribbon to a
man and his baby overlooking this history
The emotional heart of the garden, however,
is the memorial plaques and bricks that surround
the front half of the gazebo. The bronze plaques,
mounted on brick pedestals, were contributed by
military organizations and local service groups or
even by families honoring a deceased relative.
The most moving is a plaque containing
the names of the 30 Charlotte County service
members who died in conflicts ranging from
World War I to Beirut. Some prominent Char-
lotte County family names are on the list.
First-time visitors also need to take time to
examine the commemorative pavers between
the plaques and the gazebos. These have
been purchased to honor a veteran and are
installed and maintained by the city of Punta
Gorda.
Prices range from $25 for a 4-inch by 8-inch
brick with a maximum of three lines of 12 char-
acters each up to a $125 deluxe model that is
12 inches by 12 inches with a custom logo and


five lines of 15 characters each. It is a great
way to honor a loved one who is not interred
in a military cemetery or living relatives who
would enjoy seeing their service to country
visibly honored.
A brick can be purchased in a variety of
ways, including by sending a check made out to
the Charlotte County Veterans Council, PO. Box
380964, Murdock, FL 33937. Better yet, contact
Kim Lovejoy, executive director of the Military
Heritage Museum (www.freedomisntfree.org) in
Fishermen's Village.
She said, "We have a form in the museum.
People can call me at 941-575-9002, and I'll mail
it, or they can come in and pick it up."
Pick-up should be the preferred option be-
cause it offers a chance to visit the another venue
in Punta Gorda that honors veterans.
Visitors will enjoy the sense of reverence the
Kiwanis Veterans Garden will engender in them, but
they should realize the garden is not all it can be.
Rodney Taylor led the fundraising drive and
oversaw construction of the garden as his com-
munity project while president of the Punta Gorda
Kiwanis in 1995-96 and later the installation of a
gas flame and fountain in 2001.
The flame and fountain are gone, the result
of problems with the flame's automatic cutoff,
Hurricane Charley and city budget problems.
Taylor and a number of community organizations
are leading a fundraising drive to replace it with
a spectacular, LED-lighted fountain in the pond
behind the gazebo that will draw veterans from all
over Southwest Florida.
Janeen Weiler, owner of Exotic Pools by
Janeen, has donated the design work and engi-
neering for a fountain with a 22-foot pedestal and
a 4-feet-tall, 8-feet-wide bowl on top from which a
gusher of water and air emerge. White LED lights
will illuminate the bubbling water, and red, white
and blue lights will shine on the water flowing
over the bowl.
Contribute by writing a check payable to TEAM
Punta Gorda with "fountain" in the reference line.
Drop it off at the museum, or mail to the Punta
Gorda Chamber of Commerce, 252 W. Marion
Ave., Punta Gorda, FL 33950.

The flame and fountain that once graced Kiwanis Veterans Garden may be gone, but the commu-
nity is now raising money for a spectacular, LED-lighted fountain in the pond behind the gazebo
that will draw veterans from all over Southwest Florida. Kiwanis Veterans Garden honors those
who served.

Memorial Day picnic from Buffalo Bill's Catering


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
If you are looking for something for your Memo-
rial Day picnic that's beyond the typical burg-
ers and hot dogs you usually make, Buffalo
Bill's Catering in Venice has you covered.
Gary Steinwachs' family has owned the cater-
ing business since 1964, but he and his wife,
Lucy, took over for his father in the '80s. Then in
2002, we took over the food and beverage opera-
tions at the Holiday Inn," Steinwachs said.
The couple also started a fine-dining catering
division in 2004 called White Roses Banquets,
which is geared more towards weddings, corpo-
rate events and anniversary parties. But it is the
hearty fare that Buffalo Bill's offers that is perfect
for a Memorial Day weekend celebration.
Steinwachs is basing the holiday menu off of
something he already does each week. "Every
Friday from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. in the parking
lot in front of the Elk's Lodge, we do a roadside
barbeque,' he said. "We have pulled pork, ribs,
chicken and sometimes a brisket, and we sell it
can


right out front."
He said that Memorial Day is a time when
people typically head to the beach with their
picnic lunches. "We'll give you sides to go with it,"
Steinwachs said. "We do standard baked beans,
cole slaw, pasta salad, macaroni salad and black
beans and rice. Our salads are all homemade
from scratch."
Everything they serve is fully prepared,
ready-to-eat and extremely fresh. "I make my own
sauces and my own rubs," he said. "As long as
you have proper refrigeration, the food will keep
very well."
Another special treat Buffalo Bill's offers at its
Friday barbeques, and which you will be able to
purchase for your Memorial Day weekend meal,
is its very popular dessert item. "We will have our
world-famous macaroon cookies," Steinwachs
said. "It's a very unique cookie and my daughter
Magen is the third generation of us to cook them."
If you would like to pick up food for the holiday
weekend, there are several items that will be
available. A lunch plate includes your choice of a


bun or tortillas, dipping sauce (tangy,
sweet or sweet/hot) and a choice of two sides -
cole slaw, deli salad, baked beans or black beans
and rice.
It is best to call Buffalo Bill's at 941-232-9106
or 941-232-1492 and order ahead of time. All
food can be picked up at the Venice-Nokomis
Elks parking lot, 1021 Discovery Way, North
Venice. For more information about Buffalo Bill's
Catering and White Roses Banquets, visit their
website at www.buffalobillscatering.com.

Fine Italian delicacies delivered

from their house to yours


BY CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Owner Emilio Rossitto and his team at
Angelo's Italian Market, Catering and
Bistro of Venice specialize in preparing
authentic Italian dishes for all occasions. Angelo's
catering menu speaks for itself, offering an array
of antipasto, salads, entrees, meat and cheese
platters as well as an assortment of decadent
Italian desserts. For Memorial Day weekend, in
particular, they can design a customized menu
that will appeal to anyone's particular taste.
A simple phone call can connect customers
to Carmelo Mangiafico. He's Rossitto's nephew
and a self-taught chef who has worked in the
family-owned business for 10 years. He's happy
to create simple or elegant cold platters and meat
or fish hot entrees that can be delivered free for
a minimum order of only $25. The most popular
take-out items are lasagna, hero sandwiches
available in 4-,5- and 6-foot sizes, and pizza.
Medium or large trays of elegantly arranged
appetizers and crudites serve as few as eight or
as many as 25 people. Angelo's also prepares
holiday meat orders of honey glazed hams, crown
roasts of lamb, veal or pork and filet Mignon
roasts. A complete catering menu may be found
at www.angelositalianmarket.com.
Most customers, however, return time and time
again in person to place orders in advance, sim-
ply because they enjoy the "old-world" charm and
tantalizing aromas at a family business where
customers are not just "a number." Customer,
Martin Ogle,of Port Charlotte calls Angelo's "the
greatest place in town." For over 5 years he has
made weekly visits to Venice in order to replenish
his Italian pastry supply. Pelican Point resident
Joe Centofanti is a daily customer who calls


Lindsay Swatzman, pictured here with owner
Emilio Rossitto, has greeted customers at
Angelo's deli counter for two years.
Angelo's "unbelievable." He enjoys everything: the
take-out menu, the eat-in bistro, and the market
where he buys all his favorite pastas and Italian
specialties.
Angelo's began 15 years ago as an Italian
Market located on East Venice Ave. In 2006, Ros-
sitto moved his business a few blocks east to Pin-
ebrook Plaza and began offering a wide variety of
homemade dishes, an extensive wine collection,
a catering service, and a bistro with live music on
Thursday and Saturday nights. Among the many
family members who work at Angelo's are Rossitto's
wife, Loredana; his daughter, Cristina; his son, Pier
Paoplo; and his daughter-in-law, Florinda.
The original Angelo, according to their website,
was Angelo Marchionni who emigrated from
Rome and later established the first Angelo's Ital-
ian Market in New Britain, Conn. in 1954. Emilio
Rossitto, a full-time employee there, eventually
moved to Florida where he opened his own
"Angelo's" in honor of his former employer and
mentor.
Angelo's is open every day from 9 a.m. to

Memorial Day weekend at

The Redneck Yacht Club


BY JON BAUMANN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The Redneck Yacht Club is getting down
and dirty this weekend featuring off-road
vehicles, trucks, four-wheelers, camping,
racing, live entertainment, mud, food and games.
Gates open at noon Friday. The weekend
doesn't end until the gates close at 4 p.m. on
Monday.
Friday night's entertainment features Dale
Brown and his musical group Blackwater. Satur-
day night it's country music star Daryle Singletary
and his band, featuring a number of his Top 40
hits including "I Let Her Lie."
The entertainment ends on Sunday night
with Thom Shepherd, who wrote the song "The
Redneck Yacht Club."
Parts of the fun are mud holes and a mud track
where anybody can take their vehicle and drive
it through. The Mega Truck Bad Boys series will
be a part of the weekend highlights with nearly
$10,000 in payouts to competitors. There will be
ladies-only racing, ATV competitions and truck
pulls beginning at noon on Saturday and Sunday.
All competitions end at dusk each day.
For those who don't want to take the plunge
into mud holes more than 7-feet deep, there are
hills and trails on the 800-plus acre property for
those looking for excitement, but don't want to get
too wet. There are also areas for four-wheel ATVs
oeo

Bikini Beach, a large
swimming hole approxi-

Mike & Mindy's


Eri ,C. May 23-29, 2012


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
There are some who may say that it's not a
good idea to open a restaurant with a new
spouse 20 days after getting married. But
Mike and Mindy Smith say it's worked out just fine
for them.
Mindy, a local whose father graduated from
Venice High School, said while growing up, she
always seemed to be cooking for a crowd.
"My mother had her own business and I had
three brothers and sisters," she said. "I was
making lasagna for my family forever. Then,
when I went away to college, I was still always
cooking."
Mike has worked in the restaurant business for
about 10 years, mostly with Logan's Roadhouse.
He said his mother was a waitress for as long as
he can remember, and he has been around the
food industry for most of his life.
Almost exactly a year ago, an enticing op-
portunity was presented to Mike and Mindy. The
owners of Luna's Pizza, in the Venice Village
Shoppes on the corner of Jacaranda and U.S. 41,
wanted to just concentrate on their Venice Island
Luna's location.
"I used to work at Luna's and they offered
it to me,' said Mindy. 'We couldn't turn that
down."
And they didn't turn it down. What they did
instead is to change the name and the menu and


make it their own. Though they do serve delicious
pizzas now, there is much more from which to
choose than that.
"A lot of people confuse us for an Ital-
ian place, but what we serve is really good
American food," said Mindy "We make all of
our dressings and our salads are chopped to
order."
In addition to the fresh salads, the menu
includes strombolis, calzones, wings and sand-
wiches, as well as some delectable appetizer
baskets. The Smiths say that their best-selling
appetizer by far is the fried pickles.
Mike said that what makes their food taste so
good is the freshness of the ingredients, which he
buys daily for the restaurant.
"We buy what we need for the day, so I can
touch every vegetable before I put it on the shelf,"
he said. "I do the same thing with the meats.
And coming soon, there will be even more to
choose from on the menu.
"We will have a new menu roll out on June 1,'
said Mike."We'll add burgers, a shredded chicken
sandwich and Mindy's homemade lasagna."
The shredded chicken sandwich will be
baked in a marinade for about six hours
until it falls apart. It will then be served with
whatever toppings you wish to add. One thing
that will not change with the new menu is the
Smiths' practice of giving out complimentary
desserts.

Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre: Go for the food as much as for the show


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Patrons of the Broadway Palm Dinner
Theatre in Fort Myers go there for the food
as much as for the show.
That one of the most successful dinner theaters
in the country was created in an old Publix super-
market was one more challenge to be met by its
young (40-something) producer, Will Prather.
It is all in a day's work for the Cornell Hotel
School grad who also happens to be the son of
the founders of Prather Entertainment Group.
"My mom and dad have been in the business
for 45 years,' he said.
The senior Prathers, Tom and Deborah, cre-
ated the Dutch Apple Dinner Theatre in Lan-
caster, Pa., some 30 years ago. With 380 seats,
that theater serves more than 150,000 guests
each year.
The 450-seat Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre,
bears a striking interior resemblance to the first
theater facility opened in 1993 with 25 employees.
The recent production of "Legally Blonde"
came to Fort Myers from an earlier run at the
Arizona theater.
By the time the real estate market was at its
zenith and ready to collapse in 2007, a third
theater, the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre, had
been open for four years in Mesa, Ariz. and the
company had a national touring company.
"Two of the theaters were at Ground Zero,"
Prather said. "Phoenix and Florida.'
The housing market had collapsed and unem-
ployment was nearing record levels in both areas.
"The most profitable theater is the one in
Pennsylvania,' he said.
It also was the most solvent because his
parents had paid down their debt, he said. "They
were smart.'
The sapple did not fall far from the tree.
Devoted to his family, from his parents to his wife
and young son, he also uses what he learned
from his parents about the business as well as
what he learned at Cornell.
He was in Phoenix two weeks ago to negotiate


the sale of the Mesa Theatre as of Aug. 1.
"Our last show there will be a concert ('Take
It to the Limit the ultimate Eagles Tribute") on
July 28'" he said.
The sale frees Prather up to spend more time
with his son while also concentrating on the
touring company, the dinner theaters and his
community.
"I am very active in my son's school and in the
arts community here," he said.
When one considers that the Fort Myers
theater operation alone includes, in addition to
the 448-seat main stage area, a 98-seat black
box theater, 120-seat cabaret/dining area, art
gallery, gift shop and 30-seat Art Caf6 bar, it is
easy to see a work schedule of far more than 40
hours per week. Currently, the touring company
is playing a 30-week schedule of "Fiddler on the
Roof," he said.
Casting for the touring company and dinner
theaters is done with the help of national audi-
tions each year. Cast members are paid profes-
sionals even those as young as the children in
last seasons "Annie."
While Prather did a bit of acting in his
early days, with one important exception,
he has long since left the artistic work to his
directors so he can concentrate on the largest

dinner theater operation in the country,
entertaining nearly a half million guests
annually. He is involved in the choice of shows
because area patrons favor classics like
"Fiddler on the Roof" and "Annie" over more
recent Broadway musicals, no matter how suc-
cessful. He knows the value of giving patrons
what they want.
The company employs more than 300 people
and brings bus loads of patrons and their tour-
ist dollars into Fort Myers. (Buses come from
all across the state carrying many patrons for

long-term lease on that old Publix space and
rumors of road work on Colonial that might have
impacted the theater seem to have been tabled.
"We will be here at least 10 more years,' he
said. "My theater is my destination."
Currently playing in Fort Myers is "Cinderella"
which will run through June 23 on the main stage.
The theater is at 1380 Colonial Blvd. Fort Myers.

'Phantom of the Tollbooth'


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
The Generations production of "Phantom
of the Tollbooth" plays through May 27 at
Venice Theatre.
"Generations" productions feature children and
adults in productions that appeal to all age groups.
Past Generations shows have ranged from last
fall's "You're a Good Man Charlie Brown" to the
theater's annual production of the Mark Twain
classic, "A Christmas Carol."
Based on the story by Norton Juster, the stage
adaptation by E. Susan Nanus honors the story
of Milo, a bored child and his trusty companion
Tock "the watch dog." Boredom ceases when they
begin their adventures through a magical tollbooth
to a fantasy land of princes and princesses in the
Foothills of Confusion and the Mountains of Igno-
rance where they need to rescue the princesses
of Rhyme and Reason.
The story was first published in 1961 and
illustrated by Jules Feiffer. Venice Theatre's cos-
tume designers Nicholas Hartman and Jonathan
Hall took inspiration from those drawings for the
show's costumes.
Candace Artim is the show's director with
Shane Oss and Madeline McGrail serving as
stage managers.
There will be a special performance for area
students at 10 p.m. Friday. For information, teachers
should call the theater's director of diversity, Kristofer
Geddie, at 941-484-4033 ext. 247.
Performances are at 7 p.m. Thursday, Friday
and Saturday and 2 p.m matinees Saturday and
Sunday. Tickets are $16 for adults and $10 for stu-
dents. Venice Theatre is located at 140 W. Tampa
Ave., on the island in downtown Venice.
For reservations, visit www.venicestage.com or


Milo (Jason Gill) goes on a magical adventure

call the box office at 941-488-1115. The box office

Saturday night at the races


BY JON BAUMANN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
This Saturday night a 100 lap feature event
headlines the show at Punta Gorda
Speedway, located on Piper Road in
Punta Gorda.
Various divisions, including pro trucks and
cowboy cadillacs, compete in races for the glory
and the money.
Terry Williams has been in charge of the
speedway operations for approximately two
years and is generally credited with putting the
speedway back on the map by running a quality
show with reasonable admission costs and offer-
ing good food at low prices, including giant pork
tenderloin and fried bologna sandwiches.
However, a clean, well-run facility alone will
not bring people back night after night. It is the
drivers themselves who put on the show for the
fans in the grandstands. Hometown stars like high
school sensation Kelli Burns of Port Charlotte,
Matt Dunn of North Port, Jeff Firestine of Venice
and Rick Reed of Arcadia compete against state
rivals for victory.
It is not necessarily speed that draws people,
although the thought of traveling at approximately

SUN FILE PHOTO The Punta Gorda Speedway is located on Piper Road in Punta Gorda.


The checkered flag is waved at the Punta Gorda
Speedway.
90 miles per hour around a 3/8-mile track is pretty
exciting for most people. People come to speedways
because of the side-by-side racing where drivers are
inches away from each other and inches away from
the outside wall that surrounds the racing surface,
competing to see who's best.
There is certainly an element of danger to all
of this. At Punta Gorda Speedway one mistake,
one automotive failure, one flat tire, any unex-


pected event under the sun can lead to a crash.
It's a fact of life every driver accepts when he or
she gets behind the wheel. To keep these drivers
safe when the unexpected happens, Williams,
himself a former racer in the'90s, has adopted strict
safety rules and established a safety team led by
Mark Porhaska, emergency services director at the
track who is also a firefighter/paramedic.

Charlotte, Stephen Babcock of Punta Gorda, and
Ric Mills of Arcadia competing for victory, Punta

Kingsway Country Club: An accessible oasis


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

FOR ,


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I have been on Paxil for
a number of years due to
an unfortunate happen-
ing in my life. It has now
been more than 15 years.
I'm an elderly person.
I take other prescription
drugs for high blood pres-
sure and gastric reflux,
and aspirin for my heart.
Would it be safe for me
to wean myself from Paxil
at this phase of my life?
-J.M.
ANSWER: It would be
safe to do so if you get the
go-ahead from the doctor
prescribing Paxil for you.
Depression is a com-
mon illness that affects
one out of five people at
one time or more dur-
ing their lives. It's not
the ordinary sadness
that people feel when
misfortune strikes. It's
something that often
strikes out of the blue
and lasts for what seems
like an eternity. It robs
people of all the joys of
life. Depressed people
find it hard to get to sleep
or to stay asleep. Appetite
goes. Interest in friends
and hobbies vanishes.
Sexual feelings disappear.
Anxiety almost always
goes hand in hand with
depression. It's an illness
much like other medi-
cal illnesses. President
Abraham Lincoln suffered
two major depressions in
his life before he became
president. Faithful friends
helped him get over these
downturns.
Medicines are part of
depression treatment.
For a first depression, the
medicine is continued for
nine months or longer.
For people who have had
recurring depression or
a severe first depression,
the length of therapy is
longer, and in some cases
lifelong.
This illness has been
attributed to a "chemi-
cal imbalance." The
imbalance has to do
with the production of
brain chemicals by which
brain cells communicate
with each other. These
chemicals have names
such as serotonin, norepi-
nephrine and dopamine.
Recently, the theory of
chemical imbalance has
been challenged, but
the use of antidepres-
sant medicines is still in
vogue.
Your doctor will give
you a schedule of reduc-
ing your dose of Paxil
until you are finally off it.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
Please send me informa-
tion on the eyes. I was
told I have cataracts.
- D.E


Dr. Donohue
Readers may
write Dr
Donohue at
PO. Box
536475,
Orlando,
FL 32853-6475
ANSWER: If you're
older than 65, you belong
to a population of which
half the people have the
beginnings of a cataract.
If you're over 75, you
belong to a population
of people of which 70 per-
cent have the beginnings
of a cataract.
Cataracts come with
aging. Usually, they
progress slowly. Most
people don't need to have
surgical removal of the
cataract. They do quite
well without any medical
interference.
The time to remove
a cataract is the time
when it blurs your vision.
That's the time you will
want treatment and your
doctor will recommend
it. Removing a cataract
these days is a far cry
from what it used to be
only a few decades ago.
The patient returns home
shortly after the cataract
is removed, and is up and
about the next day.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I always thought peanut
butter was a good food.
Your booklet suggests that
I drink nonfat milk. My
crunchy peanut butter has
16 grams of fat along with
sodium. I am thinking of
cutting peanut butter from
my usual routine. Am I
right? C.H.
ANSWER: You're asking
the wrong person about
peanut butter. I love it. I
could live on it.
On average, 2 table-
spoons of chunky peanut
butter has 190 calories
with 17 grams of fat. Of
that fat, 13.5 grams are
polyunsaturated fat, good
fat, not the kind of fat that
clogs arteries. It has no
cholesterol. It has
140 mg of sodium (salt),
not an exorbitant amount.
I don't think you need
to give it up. It's not a
health threat.
Dr Donohue regrets that
he is unable to answer
individual letters, but he
will incorporate them
in his column whenever
pos si1l,' Readers may

Cream credentials -


Dear Heloise: What are
the differences among
heavy cream, light cream
and whipping cream? A
Reader, via email
There is a lot of differ-
ence! And it's mostly fat and
calories. Heavy cream has
36 percent to 40 percent
butterfat, light cream has 18
percent to 30 percent but-
terfat (most often it contains
20 percent), and whipping
cream has 30 percent
butterfat.
Cream rises to the surface
of whole milk and is labeled
according to the butterfat
content. Heavy cream, used
in baked goods as filling or
frosting, doubles in volume
and holds its shape well
when whipped. Light cream
usually is added to coffee or
other hot drinks in place of
milk.
Whipping cream doesn't
whip quite as well (doesn't
make sense to me, since it's
called whipping cream!) or
hold its shape as well, so
it most often is used as a
filling. Heloise

Precooking
pepperoni
Dear Heloise: My family
loves to have a pizza-and-
game night once a week. In
an effort to keep costs down,
we started making our own
pizza. It is a lot of fun mixing
all types of different ingredi-
ents and never making the
same pizza twice.
Pepperoni is one of our
favorite toppings. Not liking
how greasy the pepperoni
is, especially after cooking,
I came up with this hint.
I place a single layer of


Hints from Heloise

pepperoni in the micro-
wave, on paper towels,
microwave for about 30
seconds and then put it on
the pizza to cook. There still
is some grease, but it seems
like a lot less. Julie D.,
Colorado Springs, Colo.

Adding beans
Dear Readers: When
using canned beans in a rec-
ipe, do you drain and rinse
the beans before adding
them, or just drain them?
The brine from a can of
beans is a great way to add
flavor to your dish. However,
if you are watching your
sodium intake, rinsing the
beans after draining can cut
the sodium. Heloise

Cooking hint
Dear Heloise: A lot of
recipes call for you to place
the lid on a pot, but with the
lid slightly ajar for vent-
ing steam. I was having a
particularly hard time doing
this with one lid, until I took
a binder clip and clipped it
to the side of the pot. This
allowed me to set the lid on
top of it and keep the lid
from falling down. Denise
D., FortWayne, Ind.

DEAR ABBY: From
time to time I have read
letters in your column
about Peeping Toms. You
might find our experience
interesting.
Many years ago, soon
after my husband, Klaus,
and I arrived as newly-
weds from Germany, we
rented a small bungalow
in L.A. There were seven
of them in two rows be-
hind our landlord's large
home in the front.
Between our little house
and our next-door neigh-
bor's was a brick patio that
extended from our bedroom
window to her back door.
Not long after we moved in,
the woman began looking
into our bedroom window
on weekend mornings,
pressing her nose against
the glass. Because we were
guests in this country, we
didn't want to say anything,
but we knew we needed to
stop her.
My husband came up
with the perfect solution.
He placed a large mirror
in the window frame. Sure
enough, the weekend
came and she peered into
our window. Seeing her
face reflected back, she
dashed into her house
and never looked again.
- LILO IN COSTA MESA
DEAR LILO: I like your
husband's style. Your
neighbor may not have
gotten the thrill she was
seeking, but she sure
enough got the message.
DEAR ABBY: There is a
segment of the popula-
tion that I have not seen
you address. It's the many
women whose dreams
of marriage and children
never came true.
Society gives so much
attention to women who are
pregnant and have children.
It is very difficult for us to
hear people brag on and
on about their children and
pass around their pictures.
People need to develop
sensitivity for those like
me, who prayed 25 years
for marriage and children,
but who didn't get this
"gift from God." ALONE
IN THE NORTHWEST
DEAR ALONE: Parents
bragging about their
children and showing off
pictures are natural reac-
tions to having offspring.
It is not meant to punish


Dear Abby

the childless.
There are thousands of
children who desperately
need the attention and
affection you long to
bestow, so please consider
becoming an adoptive or
foster parent, or volunteer
with an organization such
as Big Brothers Big Sisters
of America. The website
is www.bbbs.org. Join the
ranks and you, too, can ex-
perience the joys of rearing
children and bragging as
you show off your pictures.
DEAR ABBY: I am a
freshman in college. I
would like to transfer to
a college that two of my
best friends from high
school attend, and also
change my planned ma-
jor. We have been friends
since seventh grade, and
we would like to rent a
house over the summer
and remain in it during
the next school year.
My problem is my
father. Daddy insists that I
shouldn't live with my high
school friends. He says
I should concentrate on
making new friends and see
my old ones less often. He
is making it sound like if I
don't do what he wants, that
I'll mess up my entire future.
Am I wrong here? Would
living with my friends be
that horrible? MIXED
UP IN NEWYORK
DEAR MIXED UP: Your
father may be concerned
that you and your friends
will be distracted and not
apply yourselves fully to
your studies if you share a
house together. Although
many first-year students
change their planned
majors, changing schools
as well as your major
and moving in with your
friends may appear to your
father as a retreat from
adult responsibilities. The
question you must answer
is: Does he have cause to be
concerned about your mo-
tives or your study habits?


"Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain
thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved."
- Psalm 55:22.
What a promise. It's great to have the Lord on our
side. Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.

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


I HOROSCOPE I
ARIES (March 21-April 19).The price tag won't give
you a good idea of an item's true value.You'll be the
one to catch amazing bargains and avoid overpriced
nonsense if you keep your eyes open.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).Just when you think
you're gaining ground, you realize something that
sends you backto the beginning.This is ultimately
very beneficial.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21).The one you love may
or may not reciprocate in the manner you would


way. Regardless of how it plays, there's something
energizing about being caught off guard.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You will have special
privileges because of a relationship or association.
Even if you feel you've done nothing to deserve the
perks, you should enjoy them.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Tense situations settle in to
a neutral state. Someone who was being difficult
last week will now be willing to talk reasonably.
Anxieties will be allayed.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).You know it would be


opinion.That may not be enough to keep you from
working for someone's favor, though.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). One person's attention
and support will make your work easier. It also will
make it clear who isn't supporting you and really
should be. It will be the start of a conversation that
happens in the days to come.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).The day is rich in
complexity. It's as though everything you see is a
symbol for another thing entirely. You'll look deeply
into so-called reality to find a larger meaning.You


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There's an action
you would like to turn into a permanent fixture in
your behavior to the extent that it becomes a
part of your personality.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.19). You can't will
yourself to take pleasure in an experience.You either
feel it or you don't.That's what makes pleasure an
expression of your true self.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).You make a habit
of celebrating people. You need only get a slight
inkling that there's something to celebrate, and


prefer, but you will get a surprising response either wrong to base your self-worth on someone else's
oon


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).Your prize appears on
the horizon! Reach forward with all of your might
and imagine that destiny is rushing toward you,
arms extended.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 23).The people who
know you and those who want to know you will
form a delightful mix. Your intentions for June will
be realized by month's end. Your excitement grows
through September as you realize that your vision of
life is being fleshed out before your eyes. Aquarius
and Leo people adore you.Your lucky numbers are:
8,10,43, 28 and 15.

Opening lead: Five of A

A critical decision at duplicate
bridge is the battle for the maximum
result. In a World Olympiad Pairs
encounter, Anton Maas of the
Netherlands found an elegant way to
land an overtrick on this deal.
North's two clubs was the Drury
Convention, asking the strength of
South's third-hand opening. South
bid what he thought he could make.
Declarer won the opening trump
lead with dummy's eight and led a


low club toward the closed hand!
That was a two-edged sword. It
might steal a trick in clubs and,
should the queen lose to the king, the
nine of clubs could be established if
either defender started with J 10 x in
the suit. West won with the king and
reverted to spades, won with the jack
in dummy. A club was ruffed in the
closed hand and the queen of
diamonds was successfully finessed.
After discarding a diamond on the
ace of clubs, declarer ruffed a club,
crossed back to the ace of diamonds
and completed stripping the minor
suits by ruffing a diamond.
Now declarer cashed the ace of
hearts and exited with a heart, and the
defenders were faced with a
Hobson's Choice. If West was
allowed to hold the second heart, the
defender would have to concede a
ruff-sluff. If East overtook the queen
of hearts with the king, dummy's ten
would become the 11th trick. There
was no escape, and even a heart
opening lead would have fared no
better and the result was an overtrick
for North-South. Analyze how
declarer would proceed if you doubt
our statement.
