Challenger's proposed site rejected


By BOB MUDGE
EDITOR

Challenger Baseball got
Venice City Council's approval
of a location for its new fields,
but not for the site in Pinebrook
Park it had its eyes on.
Council voted 4-3 Tuesday to
approve "Plan B," which would
put the fields east of those used


by the Pop Warner football
program, not north of the soccer
complex, as Challenger pro-
posed. That site drew complaints
from homeowners to the east
and, after a large buffer area was
created to appease them, from
neighbors and other residents
who bemoaned the impact they
said the fields would have on
local wildlife and park patrons.


In its most recent plan,
distributed to council before
the meeting, the organization
shifted the fields again, to a
location currently fenced off and
unusable due to sludge pits. The
area is nicknamed "Area 51," said
former Venice police chief Jim
Hanks, representing Challenger.
"It's an eyesore," he said.
But the additional change


wasn't enough to get a council
majority in the face of what
Council Member Dave Sherman
called "tremendous pushback"
from the public against the
proposed location.
"I think (Challenger coach)
Rich Carroll walks on water,
but we finally need to do what
the citizens are asking for," he
said.


"We aren't
listening to what
our constituents
are telling us," said
Council Member
Bob Daniels. "They
don't care about
the lime pits."

Sarasota County Commission candidates for South County districts, from left, Randy McLendon, Charles Hines,
Christine Robinson, Brian Slider and Jennifer Cohen, at Monday night's forum.


By STEVEN J. SMITH
SUN CORRESPONDENT

The five candidates for
Sarasota County Commission
Districts 3 and 5 met Monday
night at the Sarasota Garden
Club for a forum sponsored by
the Sarasota County Council
of Neighborhood Associa-
tions, offering their views on
issues including development,
tax revenue investment, the
environment, the expansion of
the urban service boundary and
traffic flow.
Candidates on hand were
Jennifer Cohen of North Port
(Democrat, District 3), Christine
Robinson (Republican incum-
bent, District 3), W Brian Slider
of Venice (write-in candidate,
District 5), Venice attorney
Charles Hines of Nokomis
(Republican, District 5) and


Randy McLendon of Englewood
(Republican, District 5).
District 3 is composed
primarily ofVenice and North
Port; District 5, Venice and
Englewood.
Here's how the candidates
answered questions posed by
CONA members:
In a spectrum with pro-
neighborhood on one end
and pro-developer on the
other, where would you place
yourself?
Cohen: I'm pro-the residents.
It's all about you, your com-
munities, what you want. The
developers, builders and Real-
tors are there to support us. But
it's you, the residents, it's your
voice, your vote that makes the
decision in this county.
Slider: You really can't have
one without the other. It's a
very fine line, the walk between


those two areas. But you also
have to look and see what is
going to benefit the entire area
of Sarasota County, what types
of expenses will be involved to
support these new develop-
ments. We need to look at what
you say and what the developer
says.
Robinson: It's not a one-size-
fits-all mantra, it never is. You
have to balance the property
rights versus the neighborhood
rights, and you can't do that by
labeling yourself one way or the
other.
Hines: None of us wants to
pave paradise, but we also need
to have economics in order to
not have to tax ourselves crazy
amounts in order to provide
beaches and the arts. There has
to be a balance, and we need to

Communications at the Uni-

McFarlin said.
"There's very few

It's full speed ahead with the
planned collegiate school at SCF
Venice.
In the wake of a recent report
in the Bradenton Herald that
two trustees of the State College
of Florida Collegiate School
in Bradenton were concerned
about the school's eventual
solvency, SCF Director of Public
Affairs and Marketing Katherine
Walker said there was no need
for concern at either school.
"Three-fourths of our board


members are new and a lot
of questions are being asked
about decisions made by former
boards," Walker said. "What I
can tell you is that the collegiate
school is on track financially as it
was presented to and approved
by the board of trustees and
as outlined in the charter with
the Manatee County School
District."
According to the Bradenton
Herald story, trustees Craig
Trigueiro and Carlos Beruff were

Neal announces


major Venice project


By DANA SANCHEZ
ENGLEWOOD EDITOR

Neal Communities is entering
the Venice real estate market
with the opening of Grand Palm,
a 1,005-acre housing develop-
ment located off River Road.
The master-planned commu-
nity of 1,999 homes will be the
largest in the Lakewood Ranch
firm's portfolio and promises
to have 25 parks, nine miles of
trails, and an additional nine
miles of interconnected wildlife
corridors linking Grand Palm
with Jelks Preserve bordering the
Myakka River.


Neal is in expansion mode,
announcing in February that
it bought 500 lots to develop
homes in Englewood's Boca
Royale Golf & Country Club.
The builder is also making
inroads in Lee and Collier
counties.
Neal's largest development is
University Park, a 1,200-home
golf course community on
University Parkway in south
Manatee County.
The developers say this will
be an environmentally friendly
community, seven years in the

I COUNTY BRIEF


Cigarettes
contribute
to fire risk
Sarasota County Fire
Chief Mike Tobias warns
that carelessly discarded
cigarettes both inside
and outside of the home
can cause a fire to spread
quickly. He offers these
safety tips:
Provide smokers
with large, deep, no-tip
ashtrays, and keep an eye
on anyone who is drink-
ing and smoking.
Empty ashtrays often.
Douse the contents with
water before dumping
them.
Check cushions and
furniture for smoldering
cigarette butts. It is not a
good idea to smoke while
lying in bed or on the
couch when you are tired.
There is a law against
throwing cigarette butts
and ashes out of vehicles.
You could be responsible
for damages your care-
lessness may cause or
deaths that may occur.
Never throw or leave
cigarettes, matches or
other combustible mate-
rials on the ground.
Keep matches and
lighters away from
children.
If a fire should start in
the home:
Get out of the house


quickly and call 911.
Once outside of the
home, never go back into
the home for any reason.
Never go back inside
the home for pets. Pets
are low to the ground and
have a good chance of
being able to escape the
fire on their own.
Always have a working

North Port Democrat challenging Holder


By STEVEN J. SMITH
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Of the four candi-
dates who announced
for the District 74 seat
for the Florida House
of Representatives,
only Doug Holder, the
Republican incumbent,
and Andrew Saltman, a
Democrat who lives in
North Port, remain in the
race following Friday's
qualification deadline.
The general election is
Nov. 6.
Holder, 45, is married
and has two children.
He lives in Osprey and
was elected to office in
2006. Born in Marietta,
Ga., and a graduate of
Middle Tennessee State
University, he holds a
bachelor's degree in
political science. In the
state House, Holder
serves as chair of the
Business and Consumer
Affairs Subcommittee
and the Congressional
Redistricting Committee.
He is also a member of


the Economic Affairs
Committee, Redistricting
and Rules and Calendar
Committees.
Saltman, 31, is married
with one child. He is a
former tennis pro who
owns a tennis consult-
ing company that caters
to country clubs and
has expanded services
to the golf arena. He
attended the University of
Tampa. His father was a
municipal court judge in
New Jersey for 25 years.
Saltman has said he has
financial and negotiating
skills he believes will help
him in the Legislature.
The following ques-
tions were posed to both
candidates:
District 74 has been
redrawn. Do you feel
that affects your cam-
paign in any way, and
what are the differences
between the old district
and the new for you?
Holder: It's just a
minor shift south. It
picks up all of North
Port, and I have only


had a portion of North
Port in the past, in the
old District 70. So we
very happily will pick
up the rest of North
Port and then some
unincorporated areas out
east, along with Siesta
Key and parts of south
Sarasota County. Those
people that I am new to
in North Port are people
that we need to talk with,
and have already started
that process. As far as the
structure of the district,
demographically I don't
think that anything really
changes other than
(encompassing) some
new people. District 74
has about 61 percent
of the people that I've
represented over the past
six years.
Saltman: The only
issue that is relevant to
this election is Holder's
residency. He does not
live in the HD 74 zone. I
actually live in the zone.
Holder: That's not what
this race is about. This
race is about jobs and


the economy. The district
lines have been redrawn
to about two miles south
of my current home. I
have put my house up
for sale and will establish
residency within the
district probably in
Venice well before the
election date.
Why did you decide to
run?
Saltman: I don't pre-
tend to be a man of the
people. But I do try to be
a man for the people.
Holder: My focus has
been economic develop-
ment, and we've started
an infrastructure to make
Florida a more business-
friendly state, in order to
create more commerce,
which directly affects our
unemployment rate and
creates jobs.
What would you bring
to the office that your
opponent would not?
Saltman: Leadership.
Holder: I don't know
my opponent. I have
never met him. What
I bring to the table is


six years of experience
in the Florida House. I
will be a member of the
leadership team with the
incoming speaker, which
I think benefits our com-
munity when it comes to
issues that are specific to
our area, as far as getting
those things accom-
plished. I have been the
chairman of the Sarasota
County delegation for
the past two years, and
will be the incoming
chair of the Tampa Bay
delegation, which is the
entire legislative delega-
tion from Pasco County
all the way down to the
southern border of Sara-
sota County. That means
a role of leadership in the
House, which has been
bestowed upon me based
on my work with others
in the Legislature and my
work as a chairman in
the economic develop-
ment realm of business
and consumer affairs,
tourism, and other things
we've accomplished over
the last six years. The


business community
has endorsed me. I've
received several awards
from the Florida Cham-
ber of Commerce, the
retailers. Those are the
folks that I work directly
with in Tallahassee.
What do you hope to
accomplish if elected?
Saltman: Establishing
clearer candidate resi-
dency laws that matter.
Holder: My forte is
economic develop-
ment, so I would say
job creation and creat-
ing the foundation to
make Florida a more
business-friendly state.
I'm really excited about
the addition of the rest of
North Port to the district,
and I'm looking forward
to getting out and meet-
ing all those folks, and
continuing to hear what
their concerns are in
south Sarasota County.
And I look forward to
representing those folks
if they choose to have me
as their representative for
the next two years.


Hog-hunting program debate intensifies


By CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

There's no disputing
the fact that feral hogs
are a destructive force in
the state, their rooting for
food the cause of destruc-
tion to land and sensitive
habitats. Wild hogs can be
trapped and removed, but
the wily ones that can't be
snared need to be taken
down by other methods -
namely, by hunters.
A pilot feral hog hunt
proposed by the Southwest
FloridaWater Manage-
ment District, commonly
known as Swiftmud, for
the Deer Prairie Creek
Preserve near North Port to
reduce its feral hog popu-
lation recently hit a snag
when the Sarasota County
Commission deferred a
decision for at least 30
days and asked for more
research on alternatives to
a hunt.
Swiftmud and the


county jointly own Deer
Prairie Creek, but the
district is charged with
managing exotic-animal
control, which includes
the feral hogs.
As proposed, a feral hog
hunt on the 6,440 acres of
Deer Prairie Creek Preserve
and the adjacent Schewe
tracts would be held twice,
in three-night stints from
sundown to 2 a.m. Pro-
posed dates are Dec. 11-13
and March 19-21. The
pilot program already
had the support of the
county's Environmental
Sensitive Lands Oversight
Committee and the Parks
and Recreation Advisory
Council.
On opposite sides of the
pilot hunt issue are the
animal-rights organiza-
tion Sarasota in Defense
of Animals, which came
out against the hunt;
and the hunters, who
purchase all of the permits
for district hog hunts in a


matter of minutes.
SDA has operated a
10-acre animal sanctuary
in the county since 1989,
and sponsors a free feral
and free-roaming spay/
neuter clinic for cats.
In its campaign against
the hunt, members have
deluged the commission
with numerous emails
and phone calls.
SDA president Elise
Matthes urged commis-
sioners at last week's
meeting to vote against
the hunt.
"It is very disturbing that
such an event would take
place in Sarasota County,"
she said. "It is a blood
sport, and it is danger-
ous to dogs, to the other
wildlife and is very cruel to
both dogs and hogs."
"We don't need to back-
track on the national and
tourism fronts by actively
inviting this barbaric,
unnecessary and, frankly,
backwater activity," said

While it may be necessary to immobilize an


times the normal effort to make it go through its
motions. With this in mind, joint injuries careful


injured area in the initial stages of treatment, yet aggressive treatment that involves early
prolonged immobilization may compromise mobilization. Chiropractors are expert at treating

SDA member Karen
Ankerstar. "There are
other viable alternatives to
the feral hog problem that
have yet to be explored."
Matthew Garrett, 31, of
Pasco County, has been
hog hunting since he was
/--------


11 years old. He said he
takes "pride in doing it
(hunting) right with
respect toward animals."
That means a quick
harvest of the animal.
"We use a proper
amount of dogs to


capture or detain the
animal," Garrett said.
Videos of five dogs on one
hog "make us look bad,"
he said, and instances like
that are examples of "a
few rotten apples."

Reid: $1,000 holiday bonuses for county workers possible


By CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

It could be a very happy
holiday for Sarasota
County employees next
year.
"I am asking (the)
commission to consider a
$1,000 annual lump-sum


payment to employees
prior to the holidays
next year," County
Administrator Randall
Reid said Monday in an
email. "Non-fire union
employees have not
received raises in recent
years (five years for many
general employees), and


this amount would not be
rolled into their salaries
in future years."
He said unionized
employees would have
to agree to accept the
increase "as bargaining
would require it."
Reid said budget
revenues have dropped


only slightly this year and
stabilized for the next year
after the rapid drops of
the past. He said Mosquito
Management's millage
rate is likely to be the
only property tax increase


discussed, which would
increase the countywide
millage from 3.3384 to
3.3912. One mill equals
$1 for every $1,000 of a
property's assessed value.
Under the current


millage rate, the owner of
a $100,000 property with
a homestead exemption
pays about $166.92 in
county property taxes. The
bump in millage would
mean a few dollars more.


Maintaining independence.

here is, 'Do not disturb,'" said
Council Member Jim Bennett.
"That is the message I hear."
Characterizing the Plan A site
as a pristine nature area isn't
accurate, though, said Mayor John
Holic. Besides, he added, "I love
green space, but that is land that
was bought for city use." The land,
he said, is on the city's books for
athletic fields, not as a preserve.
After considerable debate but
no changes of position, Sher-

listen to both.
McLendon: You're going to
have to have both developers and
neighborhoods, and the attitude
that they are at opposite ends of
the spectrum, I think, is a bad
attitude.
How would you ensure
proportional tax revenue invest-
ment between the county and
its cities?
McLendon: I'm from Engle-
wood and since 1941, no one
from Englewood has served on
the county commission. So I'm
probably not the one to ask about
how the county taxes should be
held in your community, because
Englewood has been overlooked,
I believe, for too long.
Hines: I think you need to look
overall to see what's the best proj-
ect for what's going on. It's what's

joined by Kit McKeon voting
for Plan B. Holic and Council
Members Emilio Carlesimo and
Jeanette Gates voted against.
Earlier, Carlesimo sought to
delay the vote until the next coun-
cil meeting on July 24, after
council takes a month-long recess
- so that Carroll, and Marty Black,
the former city manager who
is handling the planning of the
project, could be present to argue
in support of the location they
proposed, known as Plan A That
motion only got three votes.
"It's time for us to make a deci-
sion and give this group some
direction," said Daniels.
Arguing for Plan A, Hanks

best for the county as a whole.
Robinson: Ultimately, I think
this question is a result of the
communications between the
cities and the county. Opening
up the lines of communication to
talk through some of these issues
is the most important part of it.
Slider: This question makes me
think ofWarm Mineral Springs
(Day Spa), which should serve as
an example of how we can work
together. I watch a lot of city and
county meetings, and I see that
when they have a joint session,
things seem to get done fairly well.
Cohen: In order to work
between county and cities, you
have to open the line of commu-
nication all the time. We've got to
have town hall meetings. We have
to listen to what the communi-
ties need. And we have to look at
how to best profit from our parks.
If you want to build beautiful
ballparks, there has to be some
revenue to pay for them.

said the site in Plan B, which
was recommended by city staff,
wasn't quite big enough for the
three fields Challenger wants.
Publicity about the project has
about doubled the number of
people in the program, he said,
from 60 to 120. The program is
open to anyone with a mental,
emotional or physical disability.
"People keep coming to us
saying they want to use these
facilities," he said.
But some of the project's
supporters aren't city residents,
Daniels said, adding "Plan A just
doesn't cut it."
Hanks also said there is an
issue regarding a county building

commissioner be favorably
inclined to expand the urban
service boundary, or to hold the
line?
McLendon: I'm going to say
hold the line. When the people in
the county have voted overwhelm-
ingly that this is what they want
for their county, then I believe it
behooves the county commission-
ers and all else to say this is how
we want our community to be.
Hines: With what we have
now in controlled growth, I think
people can see where we're going
to be in 10 or 20 years. We can
plan, and that's both sides of
the balance here, between slow
growth and no growth. Yes, I
would hold it where it is.
Robinson: Would I expand the
urban service boundary? No, no,
no.
Slider: I vote no also. We do
have a comprehensive plan and
it's good to know that as people
come in (to develop) they know
where they're going to be able to


on the Plan B site that may need
to be demolished and rebuilt
elsewhere, and that putting Chal-
lenger on land now used by Pop
Warner would hurt that program.
That building could be an
asset, though, if it could be used
instead of demolished, as staff
recommends, Daniels said.
"No one is suggesting you tear
it down," he said.
Any discussion beyond
approving a site was premature,
according to Sherman.
"This is only about A or B," he
said, noting that site plan approval
would happen at a later date in
front of the planning commission.
Carlesimo disagreed, pointing

go, and when. We have that in
place already.
Cohen: I do not believe in mov-
ing the ball. There's a reason why
we have a comprehensive plan,
and it worries me when we start to
try to tweak it to satisfy one group
or another. I'm not for urban
sprawl, and I'm not for changing
the plan every year.
How can we improve traffic
flow in Sarasota County?
McLendon: Whoever designed a
roundabout with two lanes ought
to have their head examined.
Hines: What I've noticed along
Route 41 is an incredible amount
of bus usage. I think we've done a
poor job in promoting that, and it
makes me sad when I see people
who do not have bus shelters,
standing out in the heat and the
rain. We need to better intercon-
nect our bus services.
Robinson: We just approved
a slew of bus shelters in North
Port and last year began express
service from North Port to


out that Carroll had said he
wouldn't do the project if he
couldn't do it the way he wanted
for his players.
"It's, do you want the project
in Venice or do you not want the
project in Venice?" he said.
Tuesday evening, Carroll said
Plan B is "unacceptable."
"They want me to spend
$800,000 on a project that's going
to be too small at the start," he
said. "There's other cities around
us that have an open mind and
want to help young people with

Sarasota, which is used a lot.
And we will be starting a new
express service from North Port
to Venice to Sarasota, to transport
the workers. More importantly,
connector roads is something we
need to make a continued effort
in providing.
Slider: I often take my parents
on the bus for a luncheon trip
to the mall. I have to say that we
have a very good transit system.
I do believe we can get more bus
traffic, to encourage people to
use the bus more.
Cohen: Living in North Port,
traveling to Sarasota for county
meetings is a long blaze. There's
always room for improvement
when there's transportation
issues. Elderly people cannot
get on a normal bus. As for the
roundabouts, I've got to tell you,
it's a little scary, especially for
the elderly. And we have to think
about that when we're building
our communities.
The primary election is Aug. 14.

a 10-acre park with a
third of the property set
aside for green space. The
property has a 32-acre lake
with an island accessible
from the mainland.
A recreation center is
expected to be completed
in the fall along with model
homes.
The project will provide

never envisioned being a
publisher or now a dean,"
McFarlin said.
Allen Parsons, a former
managing editor of the
Herald-Tribune, was
named interim publisher
in the wake of McFarlin's
announced departure.
Parsons more recently
served as the publisher of
the Ocala Star-Banner.
McFarlin has split her
career between Sarasota
and Gainesville, starting
at the Sarasota Journal not
long after her graduation
in 1976. She quickly rose
through the ranks and
became city editor by
age 23, and served in that
position until being named
executive editor for the

She returned to the Herald-
Tribune in 1990, serving as
the executive editor.

and the first year of the
Accelerated College
Program, with students in
11th grade, according to
SCF officials.
Lars Hafner, president
of SCF, said the charter
school is saving taxpay-
ers money over the long
term. Carol Probstfeld, the
school's vice president for
business services, has also
told the SCF board that the
plan from the collegiate
school's inception was
for it to begin paying its
own operating expenses
as soon as it is complete,

thing."
Ryan said Pat Neal has a
great track record.
"Staged over time and
allowing for over a full
one-third of the property
to remain as green space is
fantastic," he added.
Roxie Larain, president
of the Venice Area Board
of Realtors, said gradually
and increasingly, buyers
have been buying up new
construction homes, and
builders who have new
homes to sell are selling
them.
"The prices are good,"
Larain said. "It's a lot of
bang for your buck. A lot
of the older homes aren't
up to hurricane standards
and that's a big concern
for people coming from
northern areas."
Venice has no shortage
of new homes for sale, she
added. There are several

She helped lead the
creation of SNN News 6
during her time as
executive editor of the

served as the president of
the American Society of

As publisher, McFarlin
was instrumental in
several high-profile philan-
thropic initiatives, includ-
ing the Season of Sharing
campaign, which helped to
raise millions for Sarasota
nonprofits that helped
to keep families from
descending into homeless-
ness. She was also chair of
the Community Founda-
tion of Sarasota County
and the Greater Sarasota
Chamber of Commerce.
McFarlin said she will
one day retire in Sarasota,
but for now is looking to
get busy in her new role at
the University of Florida.

must still be negotiated

Thai students arrive to study business


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

A group of 18 students
from Thailand were hosted
Monday by Matthew DePalma,
city executive, and Elizabeth
Crapet, senior vice president of
Florida Shores Bank, 500 North
U.S. 41 Bypass, as part of a
45-day crash course in United
States business practices.
"Years ago our chamber
had a sister-city relationship
with a Russian city and a lot of
business people were brought
to this community," said
DePalma.
He learned of this project
from organizer Alex Linville,
president of World Integrated
Studies of Venice, and invited
the students to visit and
experience the operations of
the bank and meet its senior
officials during their business
studies in Venice.
The student group arrived
in Venice at the start of the
month to experience small-city

life in America on the first
scholarship program arranged
by Linville's company. He
set up the corporate social
responsibility scholarship


project in Thailand because
there is a dearth of trained
English-speaking candidates
for middle management jobs
in that fast-expanding country.


Following meetings with the
Thai ministry of education and
university presidents, he then
approached U.S. companies to
fund the project.
Arriving at the bank, Thai
visiting student president
Sathapat Phaethong said, "We
are all really enjoying this
visit. In the past week we have
been to restaurants in Venice,
Siesta Key and Premium
Outlets.
Attending college in Bang-
kok, they do not live near
beaches, so they appreciate the
opportunity to see dolphins
and are hoping to see some
manatees.
Their unique program fea-
tures intensive business skills
training including tours of PGT
Windows and Tervis, as well
as seeing the Loveland Follies
at Venice Theatre, shopping at
the Ellenton outlet mall, meet-
ing business people, weekly
dinners at Venice Yacht Club,
mingling with locals to learn
the culture, wine tasting and


formal business events. They
will also experience Disney
World, as well as the Ringling
Museum of Art and other
cultural gems.
During their visit they are
staying at the Quarterdeck
Apartments near Venice Yacht
Club and attending classes at
First Baptist Church. A State
College of Florida professor
associated with Linville will
teach the students. Linville is
managing their program of
visits.
On completing the course,
students receive grades for
writing business reports,
creating resumes and attend-
ing interviews and will be
presented with a certificate.
The program costs $250,000
and is financed by U.S. and
Thai corporations with support
by the Thailand government.
The students pay a nominal
fee to take the initial test to
qualify for the program.

Miami company acquires Venice


Pines Plaza


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

In a $10 million deal
last week, J.S. Karlton
Company Inc. of Miami
purchased the Venice
Pines Plaza Shopping
Center, 1168 Jacaranda
Blvd., at Center Road.
The plaza is anchored
by a Sweetbay super-
market with a variety of
stores and professional
offices.
Previous owner
Weingarten Nostat
Inc. of Houston,
Texas, purchased the
102,081-square-foot
center for $7.15 mil-
lion in June 2001 from
Venice Pines Plaza,
which had acquired it


for $3.525 million in
July 1989.
Anthony Newfield,
director of properties
for the Karlton Com-
pany, confirmed it did
not also purchase the
bank-owned outparcel
originally acquired by
a local person to be an
Italian restaurant. The
center name will remain
unchanged. Plans are
within the next few
weeks to undertake
cleaning, renovations
and general improve-
ments, initially to
resolve some roofing
issues.
"There are 10 units
vacant and we are
looking for a shadow
anchor," said Terry


Purdy, broker and
leasing agent of Merritt
Realty Resources Cor-
poration, 1660 South
Tamiami Trail, Osprey.
The shadow anchor
would take a 10,000-
11,000 square feet unit
plus other store space.
Additionally, it is antici-
pated two tenants will be
expanding.
"Now it is more locally
owned and managed,
it will be a friendlier
environment and the
area demographics
are more dense and
populated," said Purdy.
"The majority of space
I handle is either under
offer or in the process
of lease negotiation as
the market comes back


in these traditional
centers."
In 1978 John Karlton
acquired a 50-year-old
company, renaming it J.S.
Karlton Company Inc.
It owns three shopping
centers in Miami and has
developed of a series of
retail centers catering to
smaller retail boutiques.
Since its inception he has
invested in a portfolio of
properties, aggregating
nearly $1.5 billion in
value.
As executive director
of the Saga Bay project,
a major effort to create
an entirely new city on
2,800 acres of property
near Miami, Karlton
was responsible for all
aspects of planning,

SUN NEWSPAPERS


OUR VIEW



Resist the temptation to fertilize now


Thankfully, the June rains have
begun to soak the region, re-
plenish our water supply and
make the grass grow like crazy.
Yes, like crazy.
Which is one of the reasons coun-
ties and cities in Southwest Florida
have enacted fertilizer regulations
with summertime blackout seasons.
When it starts to rain and rain
hard there's no real reason to
apply more fertilizer to your lawn
and landscape plants. Anything put
down weeks ago is filtering to the
roots. New stuff may well flush away
into the street, the drains, canals and
bays.
It's a waste, and one that can make
a mess of things in our waterways.
You're not only throwing good money
down the drain if you fertilize this
time of year, you may well be pol-
luting. Remember, too, you're also
breaking the law.


Punta Gorda recently became the
final community from Lee through
Sarasota counties to enact a fertilizer
ordinance that includes a blackout.
Good for them.
The blackout runs from June 1
through Sept. 30. This means it's
against the law to apply fertilizer with
nitrogen and phosphorus during these
months.
However, it is still possible to buy
bags of fertilizer with nitrogen and
phosphorus. The law doesn't forbid
the sale of these fertilizers, just the
application. So the onus is on indi-
viduals and lawn-care companies. The
professionals, who are certified and
all receive best-management-practice
training, are especially wise to follow
the regulations. They have the most
to lose.
Individuals, on the other hand, can
probably get away with tossing some
fertilizer around in the back yard


without drawing undue attention
from nosy neighbors or code enforce-
ment officers. That's one of the little
secrets of the fertilizer laws: Enforce-
ment is minimal. Counties, cities and
your neighbors are counting on you
to do the right thing and follow the
law.
We hope you do. The first thing
to remember is the summertime
nitrogen-phosphorus ban. Beyond
that:
Sarasota and Charlotte coun-
ties (and the cities within) forbid
fertilizer application on impervious
surfaces. In other words, don't spill
or toss fertilizer on the sidewalk and
driveway.
Fertilizer may not be applied
within 10 feet of any body of water.
Charlotte County allows you to get
within 3 feet if a deflector shield is
used.
A 6-foot low-maintenance zone


of plants "appropriate to preventing
fertilizer runoff" is recommended for
any body of water.
No grass clippings or plant residue
may be "deposited" in drains, ditches
or roads. Or, of course, dumped in the
water.
There are annual limits on nitro-
gen and phosphorus application.
The limit is one-quarter pound per
1,000 square feet of phosphorus per
application and one-half pound
per year. In Sarasota, the rule is no
more than 4 pounds of nitrogen per
1,000 square feet annually. (Charlotte
uses a formula.) In either county, all
nitrogen must be at least 50 percent
slow-release.
Follow the regulations. Do your
lawn a favor by not overfertilizing and
encouraging disease. Save yourself
money. Be a good neighbor by help-
ing to keep our waterways a little bit
cleaner.


Happy Father's



Day, Part 1


My next two columns are
dedicated to my two children
who remain in their mother's
and my care.
The buzz of my cellphone
catches my attention as my
daughter and I plan our swim-
ming adventure my 16-year-
old is actually calling me.
I immediately become
nervous he was playing bas-
ketball and now he is calling? I
pick up the phone and hear his
voice: "Dad, a couple of guys
are not here yet. We need one
more; will you play?"
Relieved he had not been
injured, I agree to help out.
I arrive at the gym, daughter
in tow with all the things a
9-year-old girl needs to bring
on such adventures carefully
placed in her bag. The fellas
are anxious; my son says, "You
ready, Dad?"
Now is the time I must tell
you that I have taught this boy
since he could walk that bas-
ketball is the best game ever
invented, and I pretty much
willed him to love the game.
From the very first 3-foot-high
mini-basketball goal to the
regulation goal in the driveway
right now, he and I have played
games of Horse and the ever-
popular game of 21, and as he
grew older we faced each other
one on one. When the men of
the family played out there in
that driveway, I always took my
son on my team to make it fair.
His dad was a pretty good
player, as it goes. Our games
were always semi-serious, but
I never once allowed him to
win. In his younger years I was
his idol on the court; as he
grew I was his teacher on the
court; as he developed I was
his rival. I coached him in 132
games representing his middle
school. The kid is good.
So, back to this day. Teams are
picked and I feel weird as I am
the last one picked maybe the


gray in my beard? Maybe I just
look old? Who knows, but my
son was yet again my rival.
I, of course, pick him to
guard. The first time he gets the
ball I'm a second off and fail to
stop him from shooting a three-
pointer. As he lets it fly he looks
me in the eyes with something
I have never seen in those eyes
and he simply says, "Wet."
The shot is nothing but net,
and we as trot down the court
I say that in my day we said,
"swish." Where did "wet" come
from? He says to me, "You will
be hearing it a lot today; you
will know."
My turn.
I get the ball and he comes
to me. I've been doing the
same move on that boy for 12
years bump him with my
left shoulder while dribbling
with my right hand, dribble
back a step, cross over to my
left and blow by him.
As I bump him, either I have
grown softer or he is more
solid than I remember. My
mind tells me, dribble back
and get the ball into your left
hand. As I make that motion
there is no ball, and this boy
who I have pushed around,
taunted and scored on hun-
dreds of times, is gone in the
other direction, with the ball.
He scores easily and comes
back down the court. Our eyes
lock and he says, "Not today."
At that moment our world
and relationship changed: He
was no longer a boy, but not
quite a man. I tell myself I have
to change, because he certainly
has.
A father and son have many
of these moments. However,
there is none more special
than realizing the "boy" stage
has passed and it's time to start
the journey to be a man.
As a competitor I was angry,
shocked and determined, but
that doesn't win basketball
games. As it goes, we lose; the
young man and his team take
care of us quickly. There are
more guys there and the next
group takes to the court.
I watch as my son takes and
makes a three-pointer. I look
over at the seven or so folks
sitting there and all I can say is,
"Wet, baby!"

It works. The roundabout
is a huge success, and anyone
who thinks to the contrary just
needs to drive it regularly. I go
through it five or six times a
day and have had much more
success navigating the round-
about since it has been put in.
I'm curious, however, what the
incidence of accidents versus
the old intersection might be.
Anybody who has that infor-
mation might be interesting to
both.
No smoking? I'd like to know
if the Venice Public Library on
South Nokomis Avenue is a
smoke-free campus. It's listed
that way on the door. That
would probably be the inside of
the building but also the prop-
erty and grounds just outside
the entrance to the library. Why
are smokers permitted to do
their thing while sitting on the
bench just outside the sliding
doors of the main part of the
library? It's really time for the
library staff to enforce a smoke-
free campus policy in general.
It's not a pleasant experience
for children and nonsmoking
adults who are affected by this.
Not Obama. A letter to the
editor said we need a new
leader. We have a good one now
in Obama. What we do need is
a Congress that does not block
his efforts to lead. The first
thing Republicans said to the
nation was, "Our main job now
is to make sure he's a one-term
president." And they've done
everything they could to make
that happen.
An example. The Aquatica
show sure brought back life to
Venice. Did you see the crowds
that were going in, and hear
about how great the show
was? Maybe this will make
the residents of Venice realize
how much entertainment of
this type can do for the enjoy-
ment of all our citizens. People
young and old sure came out
in droves to see it. It was there
for four weekends. Just imagine
what repairing the Circus Arena


Let 'em


Have It
would mean for bringing back
family entertainment again.
You can only do so much shop-
ping, and then what? It would
be great to get the help to get
back what the Circus Arena
used to be. What a worthy
cause.
Publix wanted. Congratula-
tions to the lady who wrote in
about a Publix for SouthVenice.
When the Publix located next
to Kmart closed several years
ago, I did a survey. I had 7,000
names requesting the store
remain open. No one from
Publix even bothered to call
me to thank me for my efforts.
Please Publix, buy Albertsons.
Give us a place to shop. The
parking at Jacaranda and 41 is
a total disaster. I wouldn't walk
in that store if you paid me. So
please, Publix, get your brains
going in the right direction.
You've built too many Publixes
in other areas and left us
nothing. Please, please give us a
Publix for SouthVenice.
No Publix. I cannot believe
that anybody will be whining
about the need for another
Publix. If there is one thing
thatVenice does not need,
it is yet another Publix. You


barely travel a half a mile here
without falling over one. It's
pretentious and overpriced,
and shopping there is not a
pleasure, despite their brain-
washing commercials. We've
already lost Food Lion and
Winn-Dixie, and Albertsons
is going, and they were all
good stores. If Sweetbay can't
withstand them, they will have
a total monopoly and we will
be completely at their mercy.
Crowded. I'm from New
York and I winter in Nokomis,
and yes, I think there are too
many events in Venice. They're
just too much of a mess to get
around. Too bad, because you
have many very nice people
with storefronts in permanent
businesses. So I do hope you'll
either take it to the airport or
do something with your spe-
cial events. I really miss Venice
since it's gotten so crowded.
Equal time. I would like to
thank the person who com-
mented on the Democratic
Club's request for photos to
be included in the Gondolier
Sun photo album. I've been
under the impression that
the Democratic Party had
abandoned the Florida west
coast since the only political
announcements I have seen
in the Gondolier Sun were
for various Republican Club
meetings which appear to be
numerous here about. As far
as help in spending his money,
may I respectfully remind that
person that Florida has had
Republican governors for quite
some time, along with the
Republican-controlled Legis-
lature. At the national level, it
was Reagan who tripled the
national debt, and later on
George W who doubled it with
a relatively stable economy.
Your appreciation for having
your wallet lightened should
be directed to the proper party.
Editor's Note: We welcome
submissions from all clubs
and organizations but have no
control over who submits what.

See the circus through children's eyes


Come one and all to
see a dragon blowing


out the words, "Save the
Venice Circus Arena!"
Or the tallest woman
in the world, taller even
than the circus tent itself.
Or the trapeze art-
ist way up on a high
wire looking steadily
but uneasily down at
a goldfish bowl on the
floor beneath her. Is she
going to dive into it?!
Please visit these


extraordinary circus
"acts" at the Jacaranda
Public Library, where you
will see just a few of the
many interpretations of
the circus world by the
children around us.
Last August the Venice
Circus Arts Foundation
had its first contest of
circus drawings submit-
ted by the children of
Sarasota County. More


than 600 drawings were
submitted. The children
were from 5 to 17 years
of age and the imagina-
tion expressed by them
was without limit.
The library is now
showing a grouping of
them in the circular
cases near the computer
stations, the meeting
room and the youth and
middle school areas.


These drawings will be
on display through June.
It is not easy to select
a few drawings from
so many charming,
funny and truly talented
expressions. We are
planning to display more
of these works of art in
other venues, so as we
do we will announce
it on ourWeb page,
venicecircusarts.com.


We are grateful to the
children, the teachers
and the parents for
giving us the privilege
of enjoying, displaying
and actually seeing the
circus through different
eyes, the eyes of our
children.

Natalie Firnhaber is a
volunteer with the Venice
Circus Arts Foundation.


I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Scott made a
bad decision
Editor:
I was surprised to hear
about Gov. Scott not
reappointing C.J. Fish-
man to the SCF board of
trustees. I would like to
encourage your read-
ers to call Gov. Scott.
They should ask him to
reconsider.
Mr. Fishman has been
an outstanding member
of this community for
many years. He not only
talks the talk, but walks
the walk. I have attended
dozens of community,
and charity events over
the last 15 years. I can't
think of one that Mr.
Fishman did not attend.
He not only supports
them with his money,
but gives many hours
of his time to make our
community a better
place.
The people of Sara-
sota County voted to
raise their own taxes to
support education. We
deserve someone like Mr.
Fishman on the board to
represent us.
I would also like to
thank Mr. Fishman for
all he has done for the
community.

It's not shaving
Editor:
With the arrival of the
dry season, our water
management district
has again placed water
conservation signs along
our roadways. And in
its latest newsletter, the
water district notes that
those who let the water
run while they brush or
shave can let as much as
several gallons of water
run down the drain.
The newsletter then
comments that watering
a lawn can consume
2,100 gallons per week;
that's about half of
household consump-
tion, and letting a spigot
open for close to a day.
To the observant reader,
this says that our costly
new water sources can
only last for generations
instead of disappear-
ing in the next growth
bubble, if future installa-
tion of private irrigated


landscaping is forbidden.
Landscaping water is
lost forever; household
used water is at least
recyclable.
I really don't expect
Sarasota governments
to come together and
mandate the needed
water-conserving
development required.
I'm just requesting, since
water conservation will
not occur, that our water
management district be
realistic, and erect per-
manent, attractive and
durable water conserva-
tion signs instead of the
current ugly signs that
resemble political elec-
tion campaign posters.

The meal is on her
Editor:
I am an activity
director, and yesterday I
took a large group of my
residents from Summit
at Venice Assisted Living
and Memory Care out to
breakfast at Scrambles
Restaurant in Osprey.
After a wonderful
meal, the waitress
informed me that a
woman from another
table had paid for our
entire table's meal.
She wanted to remain
anonymous, so I just
wanted to take the
opportunity to thank
her on behalf of Sum-
mit at Venice and our
lovely residents. It was a
generous and thought-
ful gesture, and it was
appreciated by us all!

Lovett was
a real doctor
Editor:
If you are old enough,
you know what I mean
when I say Dr. Lovett was
an old-fashioned doctor,
although he did not do
house calls.
But if you needed
blood work or speci-
mens done, you went
to this office early and
later the same day you
went back and he gave
you the results. If you
needed an X-ray, you
walked down the hall,
back to the examining


room, and shortly Dr.
Lovett would be there to
tell you the results. If it
was more complicated,
he sent you to RAVE, and
then you returned to his
office and he read you
the results all within
the hour. He was an
incredible diagnostician
and would send you to
just the right doctor for
help.
They say no one is
irreplaceable. I am here
to tell you Dr. Lovett is.

Parking lot
is for sharing
Editor:
I have noticed these
past few weeks that
we are starting to have
a parking issue at the
Venice boat ramp due to
bike riders parking their
cars in the trailer-parking
section.
My husband and I have
a system for putting our
boat in he drives the
boat off the trailer and
I park. I admit I am not
the best parker, espe-
cially with my husband's
big truck pulling a boat
trailer. The issue I have is
one car taking up a entire
boat trailer-parking
space. It just seems
practical for the single
cars to park along the
paved road/grass area
and not take up an entire
boat trailer-parking spot.
There are limited spaces
available, especially if
you arrive at the boat
ramp past 11 a.m.
The easiest solution I
can see is to allow them
to park in the train depot
parking lot. Each time I
am at the ramp there are
only a few cars parked
there. I read this morn-
ing that Venice wants to
promote the bike riding
trail even more, and
the first thing I thought
was, where are the locals
going to park their boat
trailers?
If any bike riders are
reading this, please
know I am only trying to
suggest a solution so we
can all enjoy our beauti-
ful area and all it has to
offer.

Editor:
In response to "Money
matter," in Let'em Have
It: Thank you so much
for your interest in the
black T-shirts for God
Belongs in My City. We
have a small number of
T-shirts remaining if you
are interested.


The total cost of the
event was more than
$5,000 with zero budget.
The event was attended
by more than 300 people,
many churches of differ-
ent denominations and
three Christian bands.
"A beautiful day and a
beautiful event" were the
sentiments expressed by
many.
There was zero profit
made from the 300
T-shirts ordered, which
included shipping from
the God Belongs in My
City organization in
New York City. We were
required to order from
this Christian organiza-
tion and we will continue
to order shirts for next
year's event.
We are hopeful that
we can have fundraisers
and donations to be
able to pay for the event
without a few people
reaching deep in their
own personal pockets to
make this event happen.
If you are interested
in helping out for next
year's event, we would
love all the help we can
get.
Again, thank you for
your comment and we
hope this may clear up
this matter for you.

on four hits. Alex Partridge
led off with a solo home run.
With one out, Tyler Helms and
Starck walked. Andrew Thomas
singled up the middle to score
Helms. Buncik then singled to
score Starck. Donofrio lined a
three-run home run over the


left-center field fence to give
Babe's a 9-5 lead.
Roberts Insurance tied it at
9-9 with four runs in the top
of the third inning. Tanner
Pierce hit a home run and
Thomas Wildermuth's ground
out knocked in another run.
Heiligh's two-run home run
tied it at 9-9.
Babe's took a 10-9 lead in the
third on an errant throw.
In the fifth inning, Babe's
scored eight runs on seven hits.
Kyle Starck, whose four hits
included two doubles, singled
and eventually scored on a
RBI single by Buncik. Donofrio
ripped a two-run home run over
the right field fence for his 22nd
of the season. Christian Gard-
ner doubled and Cole Starck
walked. Tyler DeGraff's triple
scored two runs. After a hit by
pitch, an RBI double by Kyle
Starck and a two-run double by
Thomas closed out the scoring.
Donofrio pitched the final
inning for Babe's and retired
the side in order with two
strikeouts.
Donofrio also had four hits,
while Buncik had three hits and
three RBI. Thomas collected
two hits and two RBI.

VCS expanding athletic program


By ANN ROSS
SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER SUN

With six years of high school
under its belt, Venice Christian
School is poised to expand its
high school athletics programs
for the 2012-13 school year.
In the fall, VCS will be add-
ing varsity boys soccer and
junior varsity girls volleyball.
In the winter, the school will
add junior varsity boys basket-
ball, while in the spring, VCS
will start a varsity baseball
program.
Construction has also started
at the school on a building that
will house five classrooms, a
gymnasium, locker rooms and a
weight room.
The varsity boys soccer


program will be coached by Bill
Swanson.
Swanson has 15 years of
coaching experience and holds
a Class E YSA coaches certifi-
cation. He recently coached
the U14 team to the Region C
Division 2 Championship and
the U14 Division 2 AC Cup
State Championship. He has
also been involved coaching at
VCS for several years, leading
the girls and boys soccer teams
to championship games in the
Florida Gulf Coast League.
The junior varsity volleyball
program will be coached by
Ann and Becky Ross, who are
both Venice High graduates.
Becky played under VHS head
coach Brian Wheatley for four
years and was the starting setter


for the 2004 Indian team that
finished state runner-up. She
was also selected to the first-
team All-State in 2004. Ann has
coached in the past for Venetian
Bay volleyball club and is the
athletic director at VCS.
The addition of the junior
varsity boys basketball program
should help the already success-
ful varsity program. The coach
for the JV hasn't been chosen yet.
The VCS varsity boys basket-
ball program has been playing
for the last five years and has
secured state playoff berths each
year, competing in the semifinal
round two of the last five years.
Kevin Swann is entering his
second year at the helm of the
Lions boys basketball program.
The Lions finished the season


with a 9-12 record and return
eight players.
In his prep days, Swann was
selected to the All-Region team
for three years at James River
High School in Virginia. He
played four years at Division
III Hampden-Sydney College
in Virginia. Swann played in
four regular season conference
championships, three confer-
ence tournament champion-
ships, a Sweet 16, a Final Four
and an undefeated regular
season.
Baseball will be coached by
Michael Markowski, who played
collegiately at the University of
Charleston and was a first-team
all-conference player.

STAFF WRITER

The 2008 film "Taken,"
which portrayed a girl
being kidnapped and
sold into prostitution,
opened the eyes of
Englewood residents
Shannon Watkins and
Vanessa Morris to human
trafficking.
"It exposed trafficking
- obviously through a
Hollywood lens," Watkins
said. "I didn't know it
was something that was
happening."
But after viewing docu-
mentaries and research-
ing the modern human
slave trade, as well as
learning how close to
home it is, Watkins and
Morris, both in their 20s,
could not close their
eyes.
Watkins is an events
planner for the retirement
community Jacaranda
Trace in Venice, and Mor-
ris is a teacher's assistant
pursuing a bachelor's
degree at the University
of South Florida.
Last year they created
"Project Buy Her Back,"
a fundraising support
group that is helping
"hands-on" agencies
that work to free human-
trafficking victims.
A May 10 FBI press
release reports a 30-year-
old Bradenton woman,
Neang Prom- also
known as "Pocahontas"
- and her boyfriend
Eric Bell pleaded guilty
to human trafficking.
According to the FBI, the
couple recruited minors
between the ages of 15
and 17. The couple sold
pornographic photo-
graphs of the minors on
the Internet, and took
whatever the minors
earned from prostituting
themselves. Prom and
Bell are scheduled to
be sentenced later this
month.
The Florida Coalition
Against Human Traffick-
ing estimates 27 million
people worldwide are
enslaved, whether in
prostitution, labor,
domestic help or other
manifestations of slav-
ery. Out of those 27 mil-
lion people, 2.5 million
reside in the United
States.
Watkins and Morris
support Assembly of God
missionaries in India
who rescue children and
others from the red-light
districts.
The two women also
support Selah Freedom,
a Sarasota-based group
that is working toward
creating a safe house and
a halfway house for those
who have been victim-
ized but escaped and

cannot close their eyes to domestic and global human traf-
ficking. The two women created "Project Buy Her Back" to
support "hands-on" efforts to free victims from human slavery.


are seeking shelter from
traffickers.
"We're not literally
putting money in the
hands of a trafficker,"
Watkins stressed. "When
we say, 'buy her back,'
once we aid the organiza-
tions dealing with victims
hands on, we are teaching
(the victims) that they are
worth something, that
they are valuable."
Watkins and Mor-
ris first drew upon the
talents of West Coast
Church members in
Englewood to fundraise.
Project Buy Her Back has
raised nearly $6,000. They
hope it's a beginning.

Selah Freedom
The Hebrew word
"selah" can be translated
as "value." Selah Freedom
wants to restore value to
the lives of those victim-
ized by human slavery.
For more than a year,


Laurie Swink, Elizabeth
Fisher and other sup-
porters of Selah Freedom
have been working to
create a safe house for
trafficking victims. Their
ultimate goal is to raise
$1.5 million to establish
a safe house and later to
create a halfway house
to integrate victims of
the slave trade back into
mainstream society.
Their first year, Swink
and Fisher said, was
spent coordinating with
law enforcement, church
and other existing sup-
port groups to develop a
working understanding
of what succeeds and
what doesn't. Now they're
in transition, acting as
a referral agency but
determined to establish a
safe house.
Like Watkins and
Morris, Swink and
Fisher can tell of human
slavery cases in Sara-
sota and neighboring

TRAFFICKING FACTS
* Who are the human trafficking victims?
Estimates suggest a minimum of 17,500 foreign nationals are trafficked
annually into the U.S. from marginalized groups such as migrant
workers and displaced people. However more than 200,000 victims are
U.S. citizens, primarily runaways and other high-risk children, and are
trafficked in the sex industry. More than 80 percent of trafficking victims
are women and children. Men primarily are victimized in labor markets.
* Who are the traffickers?
Human traffickers operate as individuals, families, professional and
nonprofessional criminals or crime organizations.
* What defines human trafficking?
Sexual trafficking is anyone who puts another or minors into the
commercial sex trade with force, fraud or coercion. A human traf-
ficking victim also is anyone who is forced into and kept in involuntary
servitude as domestic help, as an agricultural or construction worker, in
a restaurant or other service industry, in door-to-door sales, in the drug
trade or panhandling or any other labor market.

By DON MOORE
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Minutes after the heavy
cruiser USS Indianapolis'
bow was blown away by a
torpedo fired by Japanese
submarine 1-58 on July 30,
1945, Ensign Harlan Twible
was treading water in the
shark-infested, inky waters
of the Philippine Sea.
He was one of hundreds
of sailors who struggled
to survive until they were
accidentally found four
days later by a bomber pilot
flying routine antisubma-
rine patrol. By that time
only 151 of the 325 men in
Twible's group were alive.
The Indianapolis
tragedy cost 883 sailors
their lives. It was the worst
disaster in U.S. naval
history. The cruiser was
also the last U.S. capital
ship sunk by the Japanese
inWorldWar II.
Two weeks earlier she
sailed out of San Francisco
Harbor under the Golden
Gate Bridge and raced at
31 knots for Tinian Island
in the South Pacific 5,000
miles away. The cruiser was
carrying the core for the
first atomic bomb, housed
in a metal container welded
to the deck
Ten days later, the
Indianapolis delivered the
container that would be
inserted in "Little Boy," the
first atomic bomb. This
was the bomb Air Force
Col. PaulTibbets dropped
on Hiroshima, helping end
WorldWar II.
After surviving the
calamity at sea, highly-
decorated Capt. Charles
Butler McVay III, skipper of
the Indianapolis, was court-
martialed. He was the only
WorldWar II skipper court-
martialed for losing his
ship. McVay was convicted
of "negligence" for failing
to zigzag the Indianapolis
while steaming through
enemy waters.
It was a trumped-up
charge brought against him
by the Navy's top brass.
Although not dismissed
from the service, McVay
never rose above the rank
of rear admiral.
For decades, until
2001, members of his
crew worked to restore
the captain's good name.
More than a decade ago,
Congress approved a
resolution attached to a
defense spending bill clear-
ing McVay of negligence.
It came 33 years too late.
In 1968, the beleaguered,
retired captain took his own
life. He shot himself with
his Navy service revolver at
his Litchfield, Conn., home.
What follows is 90-year-
old former Ensign Harlan
Twible's account of his
four-day, five-night ordeal
to survive the sharks,
the elements and the
Philippine Sea.
At 11 a.m. on the fourth
day after the sinking,
Lt. j.g. Chuck Gwinn, pilot
of a Navy PV-1 Ventura
twin-engine patrol bomber,
spotted the oil slick left
by the Indianapolis when
she sank. Hundreds of
heads were bobbing in the
gooey mess that stained the
sea's surface far below. He
radioed his base for help.
"I was a gunnery officer


Harlan Twible is pictured

United States following the
USS Indianapolis disaster in
the Pacific in the closing days
of World War II.

aboard the Indianapolis. I
had just finished my watch
on the secondary con,"
Twible, of Sarasota, said. "I
was hit in my left side by
shrapnel from the explo-
sion. At first, it didn't bother
me as I went down to the
main deck looking for the
executive officer.
"Red Flynn, the exec,
told me to go aft and take
as many men to the high
side of the ship as possible.
It was impossible to get on
the high side because the
starboard side was about
half a foot above water.
"It was pitch black and
they were passing out life
jackets. The guy passing
out the jackets was the one
whose court-martial I sat
on the week before.
"'Sir, are we gonna be
okay?' he asked. 'Lord
willing,' I replied as I
took a jacket.
"I was 23 years old. I was
waiting for someone to give
the order to do something.
But nobody did. So I gave
the order, Abandon ship!'
"Nobody moved.
"Then I yelled, 'Follow
ship! Sailors went over the
side and dropped into the
water beside me.
"It was at this point I ex-
pected to hand the control
over to someone with more
authority. There were other
officers in our group, but
none of them spoke up.
"Finally, Lt. Dick
Redmayne, the chief engi-
neer aboard ship, spoke up.
Both his hands were badly
burned so he couldn't take
charge in his condition.
I looked after Dick while
we were in the water and
brought him through the
ordeal. He was my friend
for many, many years after
that until he died.
"I'd say fear was the
dominant problem. The
men were afraid because
they didn't know what
to do. None of us had
ever gotten any training
on abandoning ship.
You weren't supposed to
abandon ship.
"I told the men to count
off. Nothing happened.
Then Gunner Homer piped
up and yelled, 'One!'
"By the time they fin-
ished counting, we had 325
people in our group. It was
the largest group.We also
had six life nets floating in
the sea with us and four
lifeboats. I ordered all the
rafts emptied of uninjured
sailors. We replaced them
with the most seriously
injured.
"The people in the rafts
didn't want to get out. They
were scared. But they did
what I told them, because


they knew I was a Naval
Academy graduate and that
impressed the sailors.
"I kept giving orders and
they knew I had taken over.
They paid me some defer-
ence. I ordered everyone
in the water to get inside
the life nets. They were all
floating in their kapok life
jackets. The vests were sup-
posed to keep them afloat
for three days.
"I told the sailors to tie
themselves together so they
wouldn't float away from
the group. Guys that broke
loose and floated off we
didn't go after because you
just couldn't do it.
"It was the second day
when the sharks arrived.
That was tough," he said as
he removed his glasses and
wiped tears from his eyes.
"Everyone who broke loose,
the sharks got.
"We discovered the
sharks didn't like a mass of
people making a commo-
tion. I set up a shark watch
around the whole group.
Anyone who sighted a
shark would yell out and
everyone would start kick-
ing and yelling.
"The sharks turned away
from our group because
of all the commotion we
caused when we spotted
one of them. I knew we
had discovered something
important about the nature
of these sharks.
'As the guys died I'd say a
prayer over them. Then I'd
take their life jacket off and
let them float off.When I let
them go the sharks would
eat them. We had no other
choice. We had to get the
dead ones out of the group
or those still living would
go crazy.
"When the sun came up
the next day it was chaos.
The sea was filled with
hundreds of men who were
trying to survive but didn't
know much about how to
do it.
"Every time things
got chaotic I would start
praying out loud. I'd make
up my prayers as I went
along. This quieted the
men down. I was praying
for Jews, Catholics and
Protestants. I don't think
we had any atheists in our
whole damn group," he
laughed.
"One of the serious
problems we faced the first
day was that no one had
any fresh water to drink.
One of my big problems
was trying to stop these
guys from drinking sea
water. I told them stories
about how their lips and
tongues would swell up if
they drank sea water and
what would happen to
them then.

I. -.
The heavy cruiser USS Indianapolis sails under the
American sailors were lost when the ship sank.


"I think I scared the hell
out of them. It stopped a lot
of them from drinking sea
water and saved their lives.
"The best thing we had
going for us: We were in the
middle of the oil slick left
by the Indianapolis when
she went down. The slick
stretched for miles. One of
the first orders I gave was
that everyone should cover
themselves with oil so they
wouldn't get sun burned.
The oil also protected us
from the cold water we
were swimming in.
"When we were finally
spotted by a patrol plane,
swimming in the oil slick,
we were 58 miles away
from where our ship sank.
We drifted that far in four
days at sea.
"The oil was probably
our biggest saving grace. It
protected us from the sun
and the cold, which saved
a lot of lives. It was also the
oil that drew the pilot of
the patrol bomber to take a
better look at what he was
flying over.
"One myth I would like
to dispel: They say you can
only stay awake 72 hours.
I stayed awake four days
and five nights. I never
slept once. Of course, when
I was picked up by the
USS Bassett (APD-73) and
they carried me aboard I
immediately fell asleep.
"The whole time we were
floating around out there
we had a sky watch. We
were hoping a plane would
fly over, but if it had none of
us had a mirror or anything
to signal him with.
"We never saw anyone
in the sky until Lt. Gwinn
flew over in his twin-engine
patrol bomber. He spotted
the oil slick and dropped
down to take a closer look.
One of the crewman spot-
ted heads in the water and


Gwinn wiggled his wings.
At that point we knew there
was a good chance we were
going to be okay.
"A PBY (flying boat)
arrived three or four hours
later. It dropped life rafts
with signaling equipment
in each boat. I got one of
the mirrors and started
signaling the plane.
"I flashed the guy in
the plane, 'You have
found the crew of the USS
Indianapolis!' From that
point on all hell broke
loose. A four-engine
bomber flew over and
dropped more life boats.
"Lt. Adrian Marks, at the
controls of the PBY, decided
to land his plane in the sea,
against Navy regulations,
because he could see some
of the men in the water
being attacked by sharks.
Before the day was over,
Marks and his crew rescued
56 sailors.
"It took ships from (Adm.
Raymond) Spruance's fleet
another 18 hours to arrive
and start picking us up. I
remember it was one hell
of a long time. The USS
Bassett picked up our
group. By then only 151 of
the original 325 who went
over the side four days
earlier were still alive. The
rescue ship dropped over
its whale boats and came
and got us.
"I was the last to come
aboard. That was Navy
tradition. When they
carried me aboard the
Bassett, I saluted and said,
'I turn the crew of the USS
Indianapolis over to the
USS Bassett.
"I was a mess when they
took me aboard. There was
blood all over me and I was
covered with oil. I blacked
out after they gave me a
blood transfusion. When I

looking after me.
"The Bassett sailed for
Samar in the Philippines.
I ended up in General
Hospital 95 on Samar,
where I spent the next
several weeks recovering.
"By Aug. 13, I was out of
the hospital and a group of
us received Purple Hearts
from Spruance. It was two
days before the Japanese
surrendered to the Allies,
endingWorldWar II.
"Adm. Spruance was
a nice guy. He wanted
to be with his crew. The
Indianapolis had been his
flagship before she was
sunk. He sat down and
played cards with us. He
was fantastic.
"I'm also a big fan of
Harry Truman. He was
the one who gave the
order to drop the bomb
on the Japanese. He and
Ronald Reagan are the only
two I recognize as being
dedicated recent American
presidents."
After the war Twible
went back to college. He
received a graduate degree
in economics and market-
ing from the University of
Chicago. He went to work
for a series of companies
until he suffered four heart
attacks in 1976, at 54, and
almost died.
He and his wife, Alice,
retired to their home in
Sarasota, where they have
lived for the past 35 years.
They have four children:

and caregivers they can be."
Father's Day was
created by Sonora Louis
Smart Dodd, the daughter
of a single father and Civil
War veteran. She was in-
spired by a Mother's Day
sermon and wondered
why there was no holiday
for fathers. After securing
support from ministers in
Spokane, Wash., her idea
came to fruition with the
first Father's Day celebra-
tion at the Spokane YMCA
June 19, 1910.
Dads can enjoy the pool,
exercise or play in the
game room or gymnasium.
People who are not current
Y members must bring a
photo ID for entry. This
opportunity is for theYs in
Venice, Englewood, North
Port, Port Charlotte, Punta
Gorda, Fort Myers, Bonita


Springs, Naples and Marco
Island. To find YMCA hours
and location information,
go to www.ymca.net.
Nationally, one out
of three children lives
in a home without their
biological father, according
to the U.S. Census Bureau.
Societal factors such as un-
employment, work-life bal-
ance or a lack of resources
can affect fathers' ability to
seek support in strengthen-
ing their parenting skills
and more fully engaging in
the lives of their children.
The Yremains dedicated
to providing resources and
opportunities for fathers to
further involve themselves
in the well-being and devel-
opment of their children.

Texcellence donates


FROM THE EDUCATION
FOUNDATION OF
SARASOTA COUNTY
Helen Salomon was
already excited about
receiving her family's first
computer. She had learned
how to use a computer at
school and was looking
forward to showing her
sisters and mom.
But the Gulf Gate
Elementary School first-
grader had no idea that
her family would land in
the spotlight last week at
Riverview High, when the
Education Foundation of
Sarasota County an-
nounced the Salomons
would receive the 5400th
computer distributed by
its Texcellence program.
One of more than 80
students of all ages at the
training session, Helen
and her family were there
to learn how to attach a
keyboard to a CPU, prac-
tice using educational
and home office software
and take home their very
own computer.
After welcoming the
crowd of more than
200, Texcellence coor-
dinator Alina Klein said


Since 2007, the Education
Foundation has provided
computers to more than 5,400
students and families in need.
the program had just
reached the 5,400 mark.
She introduced the
Salomons as family No.
5,400, inviting all three
sisters and their mother
to pose for pictures with
program organizers.
Bany Salomon said,
"My daughters were so
excited when they found
out they were getting a
computer. They have lots
of homework at school
that they need to do on
the computer, and we
always go to the library.
Now, I can work on
the computer with my
daughters at home."
At the end of the
evening, more than 5,420
families had received
refurbished home
computers, training and
technical support since
Texcellence was launched
in the spring of 2007.
Some students in-
terpreted for parents
and demonstrated their
computer skills while
Texcellence trainers led


two-hour workshops in
English and Spanish. All
left with clean computers,
monitors, flash drives
and a phone number for
ongoing technical help.
They received information
about low-cost broadband
Internet service available
to all families, like those
involved in Texcellence,
whose students are eligible
for the free and reduced-
price lunch program.
This collaboration
between the Education
Foundation and Sarasota
County Schools is made
possible by support from
the William G. and Marie
Selby Foundation, the
Dart Foundation, the Bank
of America Charitable
Foundation, Gulf Coast
Community Foundation,
Jon E Swift Inc., BJs
Charitable Foundation and
individual donors.
Just $250 allows
Texcellence to refurbish
one computer, then offer
training and ongoing
support. Training and
distribution sessions
are held at public
schools and other sites
around Sarasota County


computer

throughout the year.
The program was
inspired by local teacher
Ron Zimmerman, who
refurbished gently used
computers in his garage for
students in need. Today,
any family with children in
Sarasota County's public
schools who are eligible
for free or reduced-price
meals can qualify for one
of the recycled computers.


Klein is gearing up for
2012-13.
"These parents, grand-
parents and guardians
are often working several
jobs just to provide the
basics. They just can't
afford to provide a working

STEMsmart teachers honored


STAFF REPORT
Gulf Coast Community
Foundation recognized
more than 90 middle- and
high-school educators from
Sarasota and Charlotte
counties at a mid-May
celebration at the Venice
Yacht Club for teachers in
its STEMsmart initiative.
Gulf Coast presented
special awards to eight
teachers for their innova-
tive work in science
and math education,
and it named Charlotte's
L.A. Ainger Middle School
the 2012 STEMsmart
School of the Year.
"These teachers are
helping to transform
the way students learn
math and science in our
local schools," said Teri
A Hansen, president
and CEO of Gulf Coast
Community Foundation.
"This was our first
STEMsmart Teacher
Celebration, and it was a
great opportunity for our
teachers to share their
success stories and simply
be recognized for all that
they are doing for our
students."
Teachers were honored
in three categories related
to STEMsmart. Principals
of the participating schools
nominated outstanding
teachers, and the winners'
names were drawn at
the event. The winning
teachers received one of
three prizes: an iPad, a


WiFi digital camera or a
teacher's edition of the TI-
Nspire wireless graphing
calculator.
During the celebration,
Rob Lash, Venice High
School, received one of
three STEMsmart Teacher
Training awards. The
award was recognition
for excelling in common
core standards, teacher
externships, integrated
and collaborative lesson
development and career
technical education.
Larry Shannon, also at
VHS, received one of two
STEMsmart Community
Awareness awards. This


award was recogni-
tion for excellence in
community outreach
related to STEMsmart, the
STEMsmart Innovation
Awards for local businesses,
STEMsmart parent events,
STEMsmart.org com-
munications, and student
material and curriculum.
The celebration con-
cluded with the presenta-
tion of the STEMsmart
School of the Year award
to L.A. Ainger Middle
School by Chris Pfahler,
Gulf Coast's director of
community investment
and project director for
STEMsmart.

Economic and Property Damages Settlement

Providing Money to Individuals and Businesses


If you have economic loss or property damage because
of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, you could get money
from a class action settlement with BP Exploration &
Production Inc. and BP America Production Company
("BP"). Go to DeepwaterHorizonSettlements.com for
more information, including information on how to file
a claim.

WHO IS INCLUDED IN THE ECONOMIC &
PROPERTY DAMAGES SETTLEMENT?
The Economic and Property Damages ("E&PD")
Settlement Class includes people, businesses, and other
entities in the states of Louisiana,Alabama and Mississippi,
and certain counties in Texas and Florida, that were harmed
bytheoilspill. ThewebsiteDeepwaterHorizonSettlements.
com has detailed descriptions and maps to help you
determine whether a geographic location may be
included in the E&PD Settlement. Additionally,
you can call 1-866-992-6174 or e-mail questions@
DeepwaterHorizonEconomicSettlement.com to find out
if a geographic location is included.

WHAT DOES THE ECONOMIC & PROPERTY
DAMAGES SETTLEMENT PROVIDE?
The E&PD Settlement makes payments for the
following types of claims: (1) Seafood Compensation,
(2) Economic Damage, (3) Loss of Subsistence,
(4)Vessel Physical Damage, (5) Vessels of Opportunity
Charter Payment, (6) Coastal Real Property Damage,
(7) Wetlands Real Property Damage, and (8) Real
Property Sales Damage. There is no limit on the total
dollar amount of the E&PD Settlement; all qualified
claims will be paid.

How TO GET BENEFITS FROM THE ECONOMIC
& PROPERTY DAMAGES SETTLEMENT
You need to submit a Claim Form to request a payment.
You can get a copy of the various Claim Forms by visiting
the website or by calling 1-866-992-6174. Claims can
be submitted online or by mail. If you have questions
about how to file your claim, you should call the toll-free
number for assistance.


The deadline to submit most E&PD claims will be
April 22, 2014 or six months after the E&PD Settlement
becomes effective (that is, after the Court grants "final
approval" and any appeals are resolved), whichever is
later. There will be an earlier deadline to submit E&PD
Seafood Compensation claims. The earlier deadline to
submit Seafood Compensation claims will be 30 days
after final approval of the Settlement by the United
States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana
(regardless of appeals). Actual claim filing deadlines
will be posted on the website as they become available.
Valid claims will be paid as they are approved, beginning
shortly after the Court-Supervised Settlement Program
commences. It is highly recommended that E&PD
Settlement Class Members complete and submit their
claim forms promptly. Please read the Medical Benefits
Settlement notice because you may also be eligible for
benefits from that settlement.

YOUR OTHER OPTIONS
If you do not want to be legally bound by the E&PD
Settlement, you must Opt Out or exclude yourself by
October 1, 2012 or you won't be able to sue BP over
certain economic and property damage claims. If you
stay in the E&PD Settlement, you may object to it by
August 31, 2012. The Detailed Notice explains how to
exclude yourself or object.

The Court will hold a hearing on November 8, 2012 to
consider whether to approve the E&PD Settlement. You
or your own lawyer may ask to appear and speak at the
hearing at your own cost. The Court will also consider
Class Counsel fees, costs, and expenses including an
interim payment of $75 million and additional awards
equal to 6% of class claims and benefits paid. Class
Counsel fees, costs and expenses under the Economic
and Property Damages Settlement Agreement and the
Medical Benefits Settlement Agreement jointly cannot
exceed $600 million. Class members' payments will
not be reduced if the Court approves the payment of
Class Counsel fees, costs, and expenses because BP will
separately pay these attorney fees, costs, and expenses.

certain acute (short-term) and chronic (ongoing)
medical conditions occurring after exposure to oil or
chemical dispersants; (2) provision of periodic medical
examinations to qualifying people; and (3) creation of
a Gulf Region Health Outreach Program, consisting of
projects to strengthen the healthcare system. Benefits

final approval and any appeals are resolved.


How TO GET BENEFITS FROM THE
MEDICAL BENEFITS SETTLEMENT
You need to submit a Claim Form to request benefits.
You can get a copy of the Claim Form by visiting the
website or by calling 1-866-992-6174. Claims can be


submitted by mail. If you have questions about how to
file your claim, you should call the toll-free number for
assistance.

The deadline for filing a Claim Form is one year after
the Medical Benefits Settlement becomes effective
(that is, after the Court grants "final approval" and any
appeals are resolved). The exact date of the claim filing
deadline will be posted on the website. It is highly
recommended that Medical Class Members complete
and submit their claim forms promptly. Please read
the Economic and Property Damages Settlement notice
because you may also be eligible for a payment from
that settlement.


YOUR OTHER OPTIONS
If you do not want to be legally bound by the Medical
Benefits Settlement, you must Opt Out or exclude

benefits actually provided under the Medical Benefits
Settlement Agreement. Class Counsel fees, costs,
and expenses under the Medical Benefits Settlement
Agreement and the Economic and Property Damages
Settlement Agreement jointly cannot exceed $600
million. Class members' payments will not be reduced
if the Court approves the payment of Class Counsel
fees, costs, and expenses because BP will separately
pay these attorney fees, costs, and expenses.

WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
A J31 K10 7 6 4 0K 8 3 A76
Partner opens the bidding with one
heart. What do you respond?
A Your knave of spades is of
doubtful value and your fifth heart
could be overkill. If you play limit
jump raises, this hand is perfect for
that action bid three hearts. If that
is forcing in your methods, make a
temporizing bid of two clubs. You are
much too strong to even consider a
jump to four hearts.
Q 2 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:
A AQ 10 6 3 AQJ95 0 Void 6 AJ 4
The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
14 Pass 20 Pass
?
What do you bid now?
A Don't go jumping around
squandering your bidding space. You
might need lots of room to
investigate the possibilities fully, so
start with a quiet two hearts. Since a
change of suits by opener after a two-
over-one response is an absolute
force, there is no danger that the
auction will get dropped there.
Q 3 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
S10 6 3 7 54 0 AQ 10 6 AK6
The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
10 Pass 14 Pass
What do you bid now?
A There are hands where you would
raise partner's major-suit response
with three low cards, but those hands
all contain a ruffing value. This hand
is square so, despite the lack of a
heart stopper, rebid one no trump.
Q 4 Neither vulnerable, as South,
you hold:


A10764 AK873 OK J 73 Void
The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
1 Pass 3 Pass
*Invitational, not forcing
What action do you take?
A You have a dead minimum in
terms of high cards, but you do have
distributional assets. If partner does
not have much in clubs, you should
have play for game. Since you have
no way of determining assets, just
close your eyes and bid game.
Perhaps a suitable dummy will hit the
table.
Q 5 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:
SQ 9 5 AJ 7 K Q 10 6 AK9
Partner opens the bidding with one
spade. What do you respond?

A You have a powerful hand and
your queen in partner's suit must be
upgraded in value. Tell partner the
good news by making a jump shift in
your four-card suit. Start with three
diamonds and hear what partner has
to say.

Q 6 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

S9 K Q 10 3 0 A 10 2 AK983

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

A You have a very good hand but no
idea where you want to play. Start the
exploration with a simple bid in your
longest suit. Bid two clubs and see
what develops.

freedom guided by the stars.
Also accomplished as a musician, Biggers was the 2010
recipient of the Greenfield Prize commission from the Hermitage
Artist Retreat on Manasota Key and the Greenfield Foundation.

Orlando Museum of Art features ancient American art


BY SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
STAFF WRITER
When we think of classical civilizations,
the Americas rarely come to mind.
Yet stretching from Mexico through
Central America and into the Andes were
exceptionally rich cultures, rivaling any from
Europe, Asia and Africa.
In its current exhibit, "From Aztec to Zapotec II,"
the Orlando Museum of Art shows off some of its
exquisite collections from the Americas, highlight-
ing how advanced, resourceful and varied these
cultures were. Spanning over 3,000 years, the more
than 180 pieces represent the artisans' skills in pot-
tery stone, textiles and precious metals.
Rather than grouping pieces by date or geo-
graphical origin, the museum assembled displays
based on function, design or style. This allows you to
compare, for example, how Moche pots represent-
ing animals compare with Chavin, Zapotec and
Colima ceramics with similar themes.You'll see how
jewelry made of gold, silver or copper differed from
Colombia, Peru, Panama to Costa Rica.
Comparing a Maya pot from Guatemala with
one from faraway Teotihuacan illustrates how
artistic styles from the large Mexican city shot
through Mayan culture to its southernmost
reaches. Expansive trade routes allowed precious
materials to be marketed to distant cities, ex-
changing beliefs and customs while they traded
jade, obsidian and pottery
Throughout the exhibit, tags identify the
culture, location and approximate age of each
item, including a helpful photo so you can be
sure which item is referenced. Some of the tags
explain what or how the item would have been
used for instance, a stone metate for grinding
corn or a gold nosepiece worn for ceremonial or

This exquisite tripod polychrome vessel was
produced by the Chorotega people, who fled
Mexico into Central America around 500 A.D.
This piece, from Guanacaste, Costa Rica, depicts
a snarling jaguar appearing to leap out of the
pot. Slits in the legs may have been used to
insert pebbles to turn the vessel into a rattle.
religious purposes. Descriptions are offered on
how certain of the items were made: some of the
pottery, for example, was created with molds or
stamped imprints.
The exhibit reminds you that many of these items
would have been used in daily life and gives you a
glimpse of how these ancient Americans lived. One
charming Nazca pot from Peru, dated between A.D.
1 and 700, depicts a doctor examining or treating a
patient with an eye problem. An incensario, or incense
burner, from Guatemala illustrates how the Maya

burned substances such as resin and paper to commu-
nicate with the gods and ancestors. A large greenstone
"yoke" may have been worn around the waist by players
of the famous Mayan ballgame. Symbols carved in the
yoke represent the cosmic struggle of mythical beings
from the Mayan underworld, drawn from Maya legends
that date back thousands of years.

viewers a new appreciation for indigenous

Peru is known for creating giant line images,

Vacation with Harry Potter and friends at Universal Orlando


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Universal Orlando recently announced
some summer vacation deals that include
new entertainment and dining experienc-
es plus early entry to some of the most popular
attractions.
Among the newest experiences are Univer-
sal's Cinematic Spectacular: 100 Years of Movie
Memories and Universal's Superstar Parade.
Both opened May 8 at Universal Studios Florida.
Characters such as Sponge Bob Square Pants
and Dora & Diego who are featured in the parade
also show up at Universal's new Superstar
Character Breakfasts. These special breakfast
opportunities can be added to vacation packages
for $26.99 for adults and $10.99 for youngsters.
Spend your nights Italian-style at the super
deluxe Portofino Bay Hotel or enjoy South Pacific
luxury in the park's partner hotel, Lowe's Royale


Pacific. Live like a rock star at the Hard Rock
Hotel. Package deals include lodging at any of
these resort hotels plus early park admission to
the theme parks and specifically, "The Wizarding
World of Harry Potter,' one of the parks' most
popular attractions. Hotel guests also enjoy VIP
viewing spots for the parade. Earlier this year,
Universal worked with one of New Orleans' top
float builders to create floats for its Mardi Gras
parade. There are all new floats for the new sum-
mertime parade.
Best of all, instead of dealing with the giant
parking garage, nice as it is, by staying at one of the
three hotels, you can either take a boat ride to the
parks or enjoy a leisurely stroll along the lagoon that
borders and connects parks and hotels.
The boardwalk of Lombard's Seafood Grille
is the place to be for the best view of the new
"Cinematic Spectacular" that honors Univer-
sal's 100th anniversary in the film industry

Summer Circus Spectacular is back for sixth year


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
E njoy a circus six-pack beginning Tuesday
in the Historic Asolo Theater at the John
and Mable Museum of Art.
Some of the top circus stars in the world will
perform twice daily through July 28.
Emmy Award-winner Steve Smith will be the
show's emcee, introducing such stars as aerialist
Dolly Jacobs, contortionist Princess Elayne, The
Poena family Risley act and Cuban juggler Rafael
DeCarlo.
Smith was the Dean of Clown College which
was started in Venice back in 1968 when it
closed in 1996, a victim of its success. When
it began the world-famous Ringling Bros. and
Barnum & Bailey Circus, Bailey had enough
clowns for one of its troupes. When it closed,
it had produced about 1,000 professional
clown graduates of its highly successful school
which was limited to 100 students annually,
selected from thousands of applicants. Smith
is a member of the Clown Hall of Fame and also
codirected the Big Apple Circus during a career
that so far has spanned some 40 years, much of
in the guise of his Chaplinesque clown character
- Renaldo.
"I specialize in audience participation," he has
said on many occasions.
Jacobs, with her husband Pedro Reis, founded

Circus Sarasota in 1997 and has performed an-
nually in that show since its beginning. Known as
the Queen of the Air, Jacobs grew up in Sarasota
as the daughter of Master Clown Lou Jacobs.
The tiny car that was part of her famed father's
act resides today at the Ringling Museum of the
Circus which is a key component of the Ringling
Museum campus. Dolly performed in the center
ring of the Ringling show for many years and, like
her famous father, is in the Circus Hall of Fame
at the museum, the Ring of Fame at St. Armands
Circle and has been honored at Monte Carlo and
other places around the world.
Every circus needs a Risley act in which some-
one juggles another with only the one person's
feet. For this show, the Poema Family will feature
the family patriarch juggling the children.
Contortionist Princess Elayne and Cuban
juggler Rafael DeCarlo round out the cast of this
special circus show designed for "children of all
ages."
That one can see the show in air-conditioned
comfort in the restored historic 18th century
theater is a bonus.
Performances are at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Take a ride at the Riding Star Ranch


BY JON BAUMANN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Riding Star Ranch, located at 7701 Cleve-
land Drive, approximately 10 minutes east
of downtown Punta Gorda, offers trail
riding, private lessons and various camps.
'We're an entry point for non-horse owners.
We're more of a stable that caters to non-horse
owners rather than the equestrian world itself,"
explained Dawn Schmertmann, executive director
and driving force behind the ranch.
"All of our students, that come here to learn
to ride, they learn everything from bareback to
English to Western.The whole goal is to get them
in here, show them what the world of horses is,
what different options they have."
The latest featured activity is summer camp
which runs from Monday and ending with a


sleepover on June 22, where bonfires and
s'mores are a part of the fun.
Riding memberships are popular for those who
want some training and some horse time. For the
monthly cost of $150, you receive weekly lessons
and unlimited riding on the weekend, with young-
sters getting first choice of the 20-plus horses
on the premises on Saturdays while adults have
priority on Sundays.
"I just know that there's no place else for
people to come into the horse world and be able
to experience everything," Schmertmann said.
"Our ranch is non-discipline specific. We have all
different breeds of horses."
If you don't want to ride a horse, you can still
be around the horses through the many different
volunteer opportunities on the ranch.
"We have over 20 core volunteers but we can


always use more,' Schmertmann explained. "I'd
like to find somebody that can do a monthly or
quarterly newsletter. I have so many people that
want to be on a mailing list but I just don't have
the time."
The ranch is also beginning to build a core of
businesses in the surrounding area through the
use of tax deductible sponsorships, company bar-
becues and picnics. It's a way to support the work
Riding Star Ranch does with horses, through
rescue efforts of those abandoned, and rehabili-
tation of the animals to useful purposes in life.
Riding Star Ranch is a non-profit facility which
partners with the Boys & Girls Club, the Girl
Scouts and the YMCA, among others.
"My passion is the horses. I know it's a healthy
activity for the kids,' said Schmertmann. "It gives
them something to do."

Florida Studio Theatre's summer season opens today


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Summer at Florida Studio Theatre will be
more interesting than usual.
Progress continues on the theater's addi-
tion of more stages, a new restaurant, an elevator,
more seats and, most anticipated of all expanded
bathrooms at the building housing the Gompertz.
The season begins today with "Das Barbeci"
by Jim Luigs and Scott Warrender, in the theater's
Keating Main Stage. With music by Warrender,
the show is set in present-day Texas. The story
is told in flashbacks and song by five actors
portraying a total of 30 "outrageous characters,"
according to the theater's release.
The cast includes FST regulars Stacey Harris,
Joanna Parson and Stephen Hope, who are most
often seen in the Goldstein Cabaret ("Laughing
Matters 2001" and "I Love You, You're Perfect Now


Change"), with newcomers Billie Wildrick and
Joshua Carter. The show is being directed by
former figure skating champion Dennis Courtney,
who has directed many shows at FST, as well as
on Broadway and other stages.
"Das Barbeci" plays through July 9.
Following that show on the Keating stage is the
Pulitzer Prize-winning "Talley's Folly" by Lanford Wil-
son.The story concerns a romantic interlude involv-
ing Jewish accountant Matt Friedman and SallyTally
on the Fourth of July near the end of World War II.
The regional premiere of the show was presented at
FST in 1982. The work opens July 25 with previews,
and continues through Aug. 26.
The third and final show of the summer season
is "Perfect Wedding," a British comedy by Robin
Hawdon.This show is expected to come with a
bonus, as it is scheduled as the first production in
the renovated Gompertz Theatre. While construc-


tion was slightly behind schedule as of mid-May,
it is expected to open on schedule Aug. 8, and
will continue through Sept. 9.The story concerns
a bridegroom who seems to have started the
honeymoon a day early, and with someone other
than his intended.
A three-show subscription begins at $29 for
preview shows and reaches $45 for regular per-
formances, with single-show tickets at $19-$38.
Order online at www.floridastudiotheatre.org, or
call 941-366-9000.
Florida Studio Theatre is located at 1241 N.

Marker 4 Oyster Bar


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The owners of Venice's Marker 4 Oyster Bar
have an important message to pass along
they are still there.
That's right. In spite of the bridge renovation
that took their restaurant off the main road, in
spite of the zoning scuffles, in spite of a tanked
economy the Marker 4 has survived. And with
one of the best views in town and some menu
changes and design plans in the works, they are
here to stay.
'We want people to know that there are more
than two restaurants on the water here,' said
Richard Mote, a spokesperson for the family who
owns the Marker 4. "You can boat right up to this
restaurant and dock out front"'
The view from the deck and from inside
the dining area is spectacular. It's a tranquil,
open setting, even though the bridge is close by
- all you can see out the back is water
and boats.
Besides the view, the menu includes a
varied selection of seafood, including customer
favorites like grouper, snapper and mahi mahi.
Their half-pound Angus burgers are very
popular, and come with a variety of toppings,
and there are also plenty of beers from which to
choose.
"They have over 50 kinds of beers domes-
tics, imports and microbrews," Mote said. "They


did very well at the Beer Bash last weekend'"
There are more than 150 seats at the restau-
rant, and though it does not have a specific
party room, there are separate areas which can
accommodate groups for a small gathering.
Certainly, with the breathtaking view and the
possibility of open-air seating, you couldn't
ask for a better setting for a casual get-together.
Mote said that though the menu is very reason-
ably priced, especially for waterfront dining, the
restaurant does offer plenty of specially priced
lunch and dinner selections.
"They do daily lunch specials Monday through
Friday until 2 p.m. for $6.99," he said. Then, from
5 p.m. until 8 p.m. they have dinner specials for
$10.99:
In addition to the restaurant, the Fisherman's
Wharf property also includes a dive shop, boat
rental and parasailing charter. So a visit there
could turn into a daylong event.
"They've (the owners) expanded the restau-
rant, put in a courtyard and started including
microbrews with the beers," Mote said. They've
tried to provide someplace in Venice on the
water where you can bring the family and enjoy
yourself."
The Marker 4 Oyster Bar is located at Fisher-
man's Wharf, just before the U.S. 41 Business
bridge going onto Venice Island.
For information or for call-ahead seating, call
941-484-0344.

Nancy Wille (left), who knew the Quirks
personally, will present "Remembering Elsie
and Wellington Quirk"at the Elsie Quirk
Library's 50 year anniversary open house at
12:30 p.m. Saturday. Librarian Cris Walton,
who began working at the library in 1977, will
follow with "Library Expansions, Renovations,

reading programs. In 1986, she was assigned the
role of Youth Services Librarian.
The Friends' Golden Garden anniversary
project is well under way, according to Friends'
President Cutsinger and will be formally dedi-
cated in the fall.
Rose Sheedy Lemon Bay Garden Club chair-
woman for their Arbor Day tree-planting event,
added soil to a newly donated Cassia Tree at a
symbolic groundbreaking ceremony in April.
The Golden Garden will honor EQ Library's
Founders and offer patrons a quiet reading area.
Elsie Quirk Library is located at 100W. Dearborn
St. For more information, visit www.sclibs.net.


The original Elsie Quirk Library in Englewood faced Cocoanut Ave. and was a one-room structure
made possible by donations of land and funds from Elsie and Wellington Quirk in 1961.

Exsultate! receives grant for special concert


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
E xsultate! will present two newly commis-
sioned works at its spring 2013 concert.
The cost of creating the new works
is being funded by grants from the Gulf Coast
Community Foundation and the Women's
Exchange Foundation. Each foundation awarded
the chamber group a $5,000 grant to fund two
compositions commissioned specifically for the
award-winning chamber group.
The works are to be performed April 14 during
the final concert of the 2012-2013 season.
For the past two years, Exsultate! has been led
by artistic director and conductor Stephen Johns
who also directs the Madrigal Singers and other


Venice High School choral groups. In the latter
capacity, Johns, a Venice native, has led the high
school chorus on several trips to NewYork City to
perform at Carnegie Hall.
Some of those singers perform with Exsultate!
because of its seniors-mentoring-juniors appren-
ticeship program, which began under Johns' lead-
ership. The chorus of Exsultate! features "highly
trained professional musicians, music educators"
and other vocalists selected during annual try-
outs. Singers donate their time to perform the
organization's three annual concerts.
'We are so grateful for the commitment to the
arts and quality entertainment for the community
that Gulf Coast and the Women's Exchange have
demonstrated with these grants,' Johns said in a


recent press release.
"Composer David Brunner is enthusiastic
about our commission to expand his collection of
songs that are based upon poetry of Wendell
Berry set to music," Johns continued. "Titled
'A Timbered Choir: The Sabbath Poems,
1979-1997,' the collection already includes
'The Circles of Our Lives,' 'The Wheel' and 'We
Clasp Hands.' First published in 1998, it can
be sampled at DavidBrunner.com.music-for-
mixed-choirs. Our hope is to obtain funding
from another source for a third Brunner-Berry
song to also be composed in time for the
spring concert. We will be pairing the full Brun-
ner song cycle with a comparable one of Robert
Frost poems that have been set to music by


Randall Thompson, titled 'Frostiana."'
Tickets are on sale now for the 2012-2013
season which will begin with "Celebration!
Holiday Traditions Around the World" on Dec. 2,
The group's winter concert. "Love! Sweethearts...
Family...Country" will be presented on Feb. 24
and "Poetry! Words in Search of a Song," which
will feature the new commissions, on April 14. All
concerts are at 3:30 p.m. Sunday in the sanctu-
ary of Grace United Methodist Church, 400 E.
Field Ave., Venice.
Discounted season tickets are $40 per
person. Tickets to individual concerts are $17
for adults and $5 for students.

Morgan's Cafe


BY JON BAUMANN
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Find good food made from scratch, quality
service, friendly staff and reasonable
prices, all located in a clean, well-lit envi-
ronment at Morgan's Caf6 in Port Charlotte.
The restaurant was purchased by Brian
and Kim Casey in August of 2006. When the
opportunity presented itself to own their own res-
taurant, they went for it, bringing Kim's experience
at other restaurants with them.
"I just decided to go out and do it on my own."
Kim explained, "I just jumped right in and
did it"'
They renamed the restaurant after their daugh-
ter, Morgan, who is starting high school this fall.
"I decided a long time ago that if I ever opened
one, that I would name it after her," Kim said of
her only child.
Serving on average, easily 100 customers
every day, the caf6 is open for breakfast at
6 a.m. Monday through Saturday, offering
omelets, pancakes, eggs and various other
offerings costing anywhere from $2 to $9
depending on the order. One of the most
popular breakfast items is Kim's homemade
biscuits and sausage gravy, made from
scratch.
The lunch menu includes open-face roast beef


with mashed potatoes and brown gravy, grilled
cheese, quiches, wraps and sandwiches ranging
in price from $2 to $8.
Popular lunch items include a pork tenderloin
sandwich, either fried or grilled and hamburgers
freshly made, never frozen.
It's homestyle cooking at its finest, available
for dining in or taking out.Take out makes up
approximately 20 percent of the business. Many
people call ahead for their favorites with the caf6's
hamburgers being extremely popular with the
take-out crowd.
Regular customers, on a first-name basis
with staff, make up about 70 percent of the caf6
business.
What also makes Morgan's Caf6 extra special
is Kim herself. "My wife's a coconut," Brian
pointed out lovingly "She is a prankster. She's
really got a thing going here. The regulars bring
a new victim in so that they get in on the joke as
well"
Morgan's Caf6 is open from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Monday through Friday and from 6 a.m. to noon
Saturday
Morgan's Caf6 is located in the School House
Square Shopping Plaza, 4300 Kings Highway,
Port Charlotte.
For more information, call 941-625-3400 or

Meet Fanny Brice


PROVIDED BY THE ASOLO REPERTORY
COMPANY
before there was a Lucy or Ethel, Gracie
Allen or Imogene Coca, Fanny Brice was
the female comic superstar.
"Fanny Brice, America's Funny Girl" opens
today at the Mertz Theatre in Sarasota where it
will run until Sunday as a production of the Asolo
Repertory Theatre.
"Fanny Brice, America's Funny Girl" is a
reworking of Maltz Jupiter Theatre's 2009 hit
production "Fanny Brice: The Real Funny Girl."
Writer and director David H. Bell modified the
script and is bringing Asolo Rep the most inspir-
ing version yet.
Born Fania Borach on the Lower East Side of


NewYork City in 1891, Brice began her career
on stage with a burlesque troupe at the age of
17. Two years later she was headlining for the
Ziegfeld Follies, and by 1921 she released her
signature song, "My Man"' Brice became one of
the biggest comedic stars to grace the stage, yet
her personal life wasn't as successful, with heart-
ache and betrayal following her at every step and
her three marriages all ending in divorce. During
her tumultuous marriage to husband Number
Three, Billy Rose, Brice launched her own weekly
radio show and introduced the world to her new-
est character, Baby Snooks. For almost 15 years
Brice entertained listeners with her impersonation
of the mischievous toddler until she passed away
in 1951 at the age of 59.


Recreating the spirit of ballyhoo, flim-flam
and artistic genius of the early Broadway era,
this new musical showcases Fanny Brice at her
best and worst: creating laughs for her adoring
public and singing the songs that made her an
American icon while also working tirelessly to
keep her personal relationships from disintegrat-
ing. Known for her witty banter, Brice was quoted
once saying, "Listen, kid! I've done everything in
the theater except marry a property man ..."
Playwright and director Bell said, "Fanny Brice
is a type of American icon that fascinates me -
A'super nova' on stage with the ability to be
both a hysterical low-comedienne and a moving
torch singer'"

Woman's Exchange awards
I
$330,000 in grants and scholarships

or 50 years, the Woman's Exchange in
Sarasota has been giving away money.
Located at 539 S. Orange Avenue in
Sarasota, the consignment shop began as
a fundraising organization to benefit the Florida
West Coast Symphony.
In the intervening years the name was short-
ened to Woman's Exchange and its scope was
broadened. To date it has awarded more than
$7 million to area arts organizations and to high
school and college scholars pursuing careers
in the arts.
Thursday, at its 50th anniversary grant and
scholarship award event at its headquarters, it
handed out another $330,000 to 26 cultural orga-
nizations, 27 college students and 22 high school
students. The amount is significantly higher than
the initial award of $3,800 to the symphony back
on April 12, 1963.
This year's grant recipients ranged from the
Art Center of Manatee to the north, south to the
Hermitage on Manasota Beach in Englewood.
Musical groups included Exsultate! Venice's
chorale, Gloria Musicae, Key Chorale and
Sarasota Opera.
Theatrical groups ranged from the oldest
theater in the area The Players to two of the
youngest Banyan Theater Company and West
Coast Black Theatre Troupe. Sarasota Season of
Sculpture, Sarasota Film Society and the Arts and
Culture Alliance also were recipients
The Exchange is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
weekdays and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. On
the first Friday of each month it remains open until
7 p.m. It is staffed by more than 250 volunteers.
Items are accepted as donations as well
as on consignment.
For more information, call 941-955-7879 or
visit www.womansexchange.com.


Stephen Johns, director of Exultate!, with his wife, Karen, and Exsultate! director Ruth Packing,
attended the 50th anniversary of the Woman's Exchange grant program in Sarasota.

Ben Vereen coming


to Venice Theatre


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
T tickets go on sale Friday for the Venice Theatre
appearance next February of song-and-dance
man Ben Vereen.
The Tony Award winner ("Pippin"') is one of the
biggest stars to play Venice in recent years.
His one-man show is expected to be a sell-out.
His new show, "Steppin' Out Live With Ben Vereen,"
is a tribute to Broadway, stars such as Frank
Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr. and also autobiograph-
ic with song and dance numbers and
plenty of humor, according to a release from the
theater. Jan. 30 Vereen was inducted into the
Theater Hall of Fame.
"Pre-sales from the Presidents' Club are higher than
any other concert we've had here,' Venice Theatre's
executive/artistic director Murray Chase said.
The Presidents Club is a group of people who have
given $500 or more to the theater in a year, theater

spokesman Laurie Colton said.
"It is fairly exclusive. There are probably fewer than
200 people."
Colton said they were offered tickets the day before
the press release went out about the concert and by
day's end 55 tickets had been sold.
'They're buying with enthusiasm,' she said. "He's the
most well-known act we have ever had."
Vereen has appeared recently on television in "How
I Met Your Mother" and on "Grey's Anatomy."
Vereen will perform at 8 p.m. Feb. 8 and 9 and at

Sunnybreeze Golf Course: Affordable, natural, relaxed
When you step out onto the Sunnybreeze Golf Course, you know you're somewhere special, somewhere different. There are no houses backing up to the fairways, and no
highway noise to break the spell. Instead, you're surrounded by 200-year-old oak trees, pine trees, marshes, ponds and wildlife.
The relaxed pace at Sunnybreeze matches its tranquil surroundings. "We're a family friendly course, and we allow walkers at all times of the day," said Bill Baker, who owns
Sunnybreeze with his wife, Kathy.
Sunnybreeze is open to the public but offers membership options too. For a one-time "partnership fee" of $750 or $1000, plus $500 for each additional family member, golfers
can lock in lifetime daily, monthly or annual golfing rates. So regardless how much rates may increase from year to year, Lifetime Members' rates will never increase.
Bill and Kathy Baker moved to the area from Michigan in 1974 and served as managers of the course until they bought it in 1977. It began as a nine-hole course but had 27 holes
by 1984. In 1991, the Bakers built a 15,000 sq. ft. clubhouse, which was a casualty of Hurricane Charley in 2004.
The couple rebounded with an outdoor lunch spot -- Bistro on the Green -- outside of the pro shop, complete with an authentic Chickee Hut built onsite by Florida Seminole and
Miccosukee Indians. The bistro has a large lunch menu of soups, salads, sandwiches and more, including the daily special of $1 hot dog and $1 draft beer.
Today, Sunnybreeze offers golfers a choice of a picturesque yet challenging 18-hole course or a nine-hole par three course.
Sunnybreeze's friendly, relaxed atmosphere is due, in part, to their longtime staff members who make sure every golfer feels welcome. Pat Rodman has been assisting in the pro
shop since 1999. Food service manager Amy Kyre and course superintendent Rob Cooley make sure those areas run smoothly. Lessons are also available through instructor/
coach Dave Faulk and LPGA pro Bonnie Bryant.
Sunnybreeze often hosts charity events and fundraisers for groups. They also welcome all kinds of business and social groups that want to schedule regular golf outings.
Sunnybreeze is located at 8135 SW Sunnybreeze Road, technically in Arcadia but near Ft. Ogden. Their convenient location on the Charlotte/DeSoto county line makes them a
piece of serenity that's accessible from all directions.
The course is open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. You'll find directions and more information on their website, www.sunnybreezegolf.com or call them
at 863-494-2521. Bill, Kathy and the rest of the Sunnybreeze family is waiting to welcome you.

Opening lead: Eight of 6

This deal from the Kaplan Blue
Ribbon Pairs, reported by Barry
Rigal, is an interesting lesson in
duplicate. Defending three spades
undoubled and collecting 100 points


for defeating the contract one trick
would be a poor matchpoint result,
hence West's double.
West led the eight of clubs, ducked
in dummy, and declarer captured
East's jack with the ace. A trump to
the king loses to the ace and, placing
West with the ace of diamonds, East
shifted to the queen of diamonds.
Declarer rose with the ace and drew
trumps. The defenders could not
collect more than four tricks.
Suppose West's red-suit honors
were reversed, East's defense would
have succeeded. As the cards lie,
however, the winning defense is for
East to return a low club, without
releasing the king, giving partner a
ruff. Now a low diamond return from
West will defeat the contract no
matter how the declarer proceeds.
Double dummy, you say. Perhaps,
but not impossible if you place
partner with the ace of hearts and
king of diamonds.

Resistant depression

responds to shock therapy


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
In the past two years a
friend has tried several
different medicines for
depression and anxiety.
So far nothing has worked
for him. I recently heard
that electroconvulsive
therapy, ECT, is an effec-
tive treatment. Will you
please shed some light on
this? R.O.
ANSWER: ECT elec-
troconvulsive therapy,
which is also called elec-
troshock therapy is an
excellent treatment for
depression, especially
depression that doesn't
respond to medicines and
talk therapy. The names for
this treatment electro-
convulsive, electroshock-
generate fright. Someone
ought to come up with
a better name. Equally
frightening are the depic-
tions of ECT in movies.
No longer is the treat-
ment a scene of dread to
onlookers. The patient is
anesthetized and feels no
pain. Muscle relaxants stop
the thrashing that signaled
the onset of the convul-
sion. No muscle move-
ment is now seen. The only
evidence of it is recorded
on brain-wave tracings. If
you viewed a treatment,
you would ask when it
was going to take place.
You wouldn't believe that
anything had happened.
Memory loss also is
a stumbling point for
potential patients. The
memory of facts stored in
the brain is not affected by
this treatment. Personal
memories of past events
might be hazy for a time,
but most of them return.
A depressed person not
responding to medicines
and talk therapy runs the
risk of suicide, a much
greater risk than anything
induced by ECT.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
My husband was told he
had hepatitis C. He took
one year of treatment for it.
Then he got diagnosed with
cancer. He made a recovery
from surgery in a year. Now
his hepatitis C is back, and
he is scheduled for another
year of treatment.
I got checked for hepatitis
C, and the test was negative.
I got rechecked when he
was told that his hepatitis
had come back. Again, it
was negative. But the doctor
said I had one point on my
liver that could be liver or
bone. What does she mean?
-WW
ANSWER: I must admit
I don't have a clue what
the doctor means. Give
her a call and tell her that
you (and I) don't under-
stand what she's talking
about.

I'm sorry your husband
has had a relapse of
hepatitis C. However, it
has happened at a good
time. Two new hepatitis
C drugs, boceprevir
(Victrelis) and telapravir
(Incivek), are quite effec-
tive in getting rid of this
disease. Either of these
drugs is given with the
same drugs your husband
received previously. These
new drugs are major
advances in the treatment
of hepatitis C, even for
those who relapsed after
their initial therapy.
The booklet on hepa-
titis explains the three
different kinds. Readers

DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I have never seen an
article on gastroparesis.
How does one live with it?
I took erythromycin, but
it gave me heart palpita-
tions. I continue to lose
weight. How can I gain
some? I drink Ultimate
Meal once a day. My doc-
tor doesn't want me on
Reglan because it caused
problems for many of
his patients. Please help.
-M.H.
ANSWER:
"Gastroparesis" indicates
that the stomach empties
very slowly. Normally,
one-third to 90 percent of
food leaves the stomach in
one hour; by four hours,
all food should have left
it. Gastroparesis nause-
ates people. The stomach
bloats and becomes
uncomfortable. Small,
frequent meals that are low
in fat are better tolerated.
Reglan is the only medi-
cine in the U.S., in addition
to erythromycin, that is
approved for gastroparesis.
Have you tried milkshakes?
They have a good calorie
load and will stop your
weight loss. Or how about
another supplement
similar to Ultimate Meal?
I don't mean to stop
Ultimate Meal. I mean add
another meal supplement
to it during the day. Ensure
is an example.

Instant success


Dear Heloise: I am
writing to ask if you know
the best way to make a
"good" cup of instant cof-
fee. Many years ago, your
mother printed some
hints concerning instant
coffee, and it did help! -
Joyce S., Findlay, Ohio
Joyce, you made me
smile thinking of my
mother, the original
Heloise (1919-1977).
Here are some hints for
you to try: Always start
with fresh, cold water.
Boil the water. Add the
correct coffee amount,
according to the brand's
directions, to a cup, add
water and stir. Try using
a small whisk or even a
fork to stir it, instead of a
spoon, and add a pinch
of salt. For more hints
and recipes on coffee
and tea, send for my
Heloise's Flavored Coffee
and Teas pamphlet. To
order, send $3 and a long,
self-addressed, stamped
(65 cents) envelope to:
Heloise/Coffee, P.O. Box
795001, San Antonio, TX
78279-5001. If lemons
are too expensive, but
you still want the flavor
in your tea, just add half
a teaspoon of powdered
lemonade mix! Heloise

Contained cake
Dear Heloise: My hint
has to do with the tall,
plastic cake containers
that you get when you
buy a layer cake or angel-
food cake at the super-
market. When the cake
is gone, these containers

Cleaning oven rack
Dear Heloise: Please
help. I am looking for a
way to clean my oven
racks. Narvella in
Cleveland
Yuck! They can be
pretty dirty and a chore
to clean. Put the dirty
oven racks inside a large,
sturdy, plastic garbage
bag, and spray both sides
with oven cleaner. Close
up the bag and let it sit for
several hours or overnight
in a safe place so children
and pets don't get to it.
Carefully discard the
bag and rinse the racks
clean with water. Rarely
does it take any scrub-
bing (if you've covered
the racks well with oven
cleaner). Hope this helps.

DEAR ABBY: My boy-
friend, "Wally," and I have
been friends for several
years, and a couple for
nearly two. He recently
brought up the subject
of marriage, and we
agreed that we are likely
altar-bound.
Only one thing gives me
pause. A few months ago,
Wally got plastered and
had a fling with a female
friend. He regretted it
immediately and said
it was what made him
realize I am "The One."
(He is getting help for his
drinking now.)
The problem is, the
woman is still pursuing
him. She buys him gifts
or brings him vegan
meals. He has asked her
repeatedly to stop, to no
avail. Because Wally is a
vegetarian and I'm not,
I suspect she's trying to
prove she would be a
better partner for him.
I have asked Wally to
cut off contact with her,
but he won't. He feels bad
for her because she has
few friends and lives in an
isolated little town. What
do you suggest I do? -
UNWILLING TO SHARE
DEAR UNWILLING TO
SHARE: Raise the subject
of marriage with Wally
again, and tell him his
continued contact with
the woman he cheated
with is hurtful to you and
a threat to your relation-
ship. Ask how he would
feel if you continued
to see and accept gifts
from a man you'd had
a drunken fling with. If
he says he wouldn't be
thrilled, perhaps he'll be
able to understand your
reaction to what's going
on. If he says he'd be fine
with it, then Wally isn't the
man for you.
DEAR ABBY: My
13-year-old niece,
"Amelia," is a beauti-
ful young girl. She has
only two flaws she
lies constantly and she's
boy-crazy. I have to listen
to my sister talk on and
on about how hard it is
to trust her. My sister and
brother-in-law have set
many rules and limits
for my niece. I think her
punishments for break-
ing rules fit the crime


Dear Abby

- grounding, having
things taken away, etc.
Amelia knows she can't
have a boyfriend until
she's 16. Lately, she keeps
trying to get boys' phone
numbers and meet with
them. She has also been
caught sexting three
times and lying about it.
As her punishment this
time, my sister and her
husband shaved Amelia's
head. I am shocked and
devastated for my niece.
I think it was extremely
inappropriate.
When I try to talk to my
sister about my concerns,
she tells me she had
no choice because her
daughter had so many
warnings. I don't know
what to do. I think my
niece will need counsel-
ing. My sister says I am
overreacting. Am I? Or did
she? -WORRIED AUNT
IN UTAH
DEAR WORRIED AUNT:
Amelia's parents went off
the deep end. What was
done to her was awful,
and you are not overre-
acting. Instead of shaving
her daughter's head, your
sister should have tried
to understand why she
is lying and desperately
seeking attention from
boys.
If I ever heard of a
family in need of family
therapy, it is your sister's.
Love, attention and less
draconian punishments
are what Amelia needs,
not months of public
shaming.

I HOROSCOPE I
ARIES (March 21-April 19).Were you born this way?
The only rightful conclusion is: It doesn't matter.
Embracing the you that you've become without
further question is your best move yet.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When was the last time
you wrote a letter to a famous person or to someone
who could change the laws and systems by which
society abides? Reaching out today will be lucky
for you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21).There's someone you


reason why you shouldn't. Today is perfect. Sit down
and tell this person what you're thinking.
CANCER (June 22-July 22).The only thing more
delicious than a juicy opportunity is the ability to
recognize it when it comes along. Street smarts and
financial savvy will help you turn a profit.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).There is little between you
and the one who has your heart; no gap to bridge
or wound to heal, but maybe there's a phone call to
make. Make it tonight after 7 p.m.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).The one you love is going


part of. If you're separate from the angst, continue
to stay as far away from it as you possibly can.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Be careful about telling
people what you want to learn, because informa-
tion has a way of expanding to the capacity of your
curiosity. Bite-sized knowledge will delight you
- but anything more and you're stuffed.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Reach out, and another
person will reach toward you to close the space.
Go forward, and you'll be accepted and embraced.
Think the best of people, and your open mind and


feel drawn to talk with, and there is absolutely no through some drama that you mayor may not be a heart bring out the best, too.
ooo


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).Your original ex-
pectation of someone may have proved wrong, but
all is not lost.This person will contribute something
quite different from what you anticipated.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Learning gets frus-
trating. Not understanding as fast as you'd like, you
may be tempted to quit. Better to take a breather
than to make a rash decision.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You can be proud of
the relationships you've built. You also know that
friendship needs to be continually cared for. You'll
give your personal life more attention


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A minor alrnior,
like the adventure of buying groceries .r ., nriai i.
work, will lead to a more substantial jourri.' i, i,
weeks to come. Your attitude makes it ..
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 13).You'll i.- v...r
