Debby's aftermath


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER

Tropical Storm Debby did
not have the wind strength
of Hurricane Charley, but it
wreaked its share of havoc -
including structural threats to
three residences on Manasota
Key and one on Casey Key.
The worst erosion occurred
from the Sarasota-Charlotte
county line north to Blind Pass
Park and from the park to the
7100 block of Manasota Key
Road, according to a Sarasota
County draft report assessing
storm damage.
Sarasota County officials
and Manasota Key residents
are meeting to discuss what
can be done.
Both counties are now
assessing coastal erosion,
threatened structures and
other damage left by Debby.
The Sarasota County draft
report summarized how
Debby, with sustained winds
of 40 mph and an estimated
storm surge of 3 to 5 feet,
caused:
Severe dune erosion on
Manasota Key, Casey Key and
South Siesta Key. Between
10 and 20 feet of sand dunes
were eroded away in some
areas, while in other areas,
30 feet or more of dunes
disappeared.
Erosion threatening three

Tropical Storm Debby may not have been as strong as a hurricane, but it did plenty to erode Gulf beaches in Sara-
sota and Charlotte counties. This Gulf-front home on Manasota Key now sits on an eroded sand dune.


residential structures on
Manasota Key, and another
residence on Casey Key.
Losses of decks, dune walk-
overs and similar structures
throughout Sarasota County.
Heavy losses of sea turtle


nests and native dune vegeta-
tion, and reports of toppled
palms and Australian pines.
Major coastal flooding on
North Siesta Key.
Manasota Key resident Larry
Reister, who lives just north


of Blind Pass public beach,
said the 35 feet of beach that
stretched out in front of his
home is gone. The Gulf is now
coming up to his porch, but

AFTERMATH 17


Homes selling faster locally


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

In May, homes in Venice
sold faster than throughout
Sarasota and Manatee coun-
ties, taking an average of
151 days to sell, 16.1 percent
quicker than 12 months ago,
according to information pro-
vided by the Re/Max Alliance
Group.
Currently, only 983 homes
in this area are on the market,
compared to almost 4,000
in the same month of 2007,
according to the latest home


sales statistics released by
Venice Area Board of Realtors.
The available inventory in
May 2007 was at 24.3 months;
now it is down to a mere 3.7
months.
Two local, experienced
brokers in different segments
of the real estate business
offered explanations.
"Sellers are more realistic
with today's values," said
Linda Bradway, managing
broker, Premier Sotheby's
International Realty, 230 South
Tamiami Trail. "There is no
doubt inventory is down, but


it's not because of anything
other than the market is much
healthier, with buyers and
sellers feeling more optimistic
and secure.
"Prices are coming up and
many buyers want to take
advantage of this before the
prices rise even further, so list-
ings are not on the market as
long as they used to be. Those
listings that are longer on the
market are usually sellers who
want to wait for the market
to recover even more. Most of
our sales are cash, but those
financed are experiencing


incredible rates.
"With all this said, low
inventory today is a positive
reflection of increased confi-
dence in the market in general
with buyers and sellers."
Another real estate veteran
has a somewhat different
opinion.
"It is a confusing inven-
tory, as people are somewhat
reluctant to sell at prices
which have to be competi-
tive with distressed sales, so
they are waiting for a market

South Sarasota County Habitat for Humanity is building a new duplex in
Englewood after not building in the town for 16 years. Pictured at the
groundbreaking Friday in Englewood are Tom Dignam, left, Bill Truex,

Habitat breaks ground in Englewood


By SUSAN ERWIN
STAFF WRITER

For the first time in 16 years,
Habitat for Humanity South
Sarasota County is building
homes in Englewood.
A groundbreaking ceremony
was held Friday for what will
become a duplex at 1981 and
1983 Forked Creek Drive in
Englewood.
Doris Berkey, Habitat's chief
development officer, welcomed
a crowd to the event.
"Today is a monumental day,"
Berkey said. "The last time we
built in Englewood was 1996,
so we are very excited to break
ground and move forward here
today."


Creating housing in Engle-
wood has been a challenge
because much of the area is in a
flood zone and requires addi-
tional insurance costs, Berkey
said.
Habitat plans to expand activ-
ity in the area for more families
to achieve their dreams of home
ownership.
Sarasota County Commis-
sion Chair Christine Robinson
congratulated the organization
during the ceremony.
Sarasota County supported
the Habitat initiative and is
a partner with Habitat in the
Neighborhood Stabilization
Program, Robinson said.
"The county provides fund-
ing and support to identify and


remodel homes for affordable
housing," said Robinson. "This
program helps our economy
in two important ways: It puts
houses on vacant lots and helps
purchase foreclosed homes for
rehabbing which helps maintain
the value of the neighborhood
and saves on construction
costs."
Berkey stressed the impor-
tance of recruiting more volun-
teers and obtaining goods and
services from the community.
Partnering families are "qual-
ity screened" and must put in
300 sweat equity hours to earn
the ability to purchase and own
a home, Berkey said.

Celebrate safely this Fourth of July


FROM THE SARASOTA
COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE

The Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office is encouraging citizens
to enjoy public displays instead
of using illegal fireworks to
celebrate the Fourth of July.
In Florida, fireworks that
leave the ground or explode are
dangerous, unpredictable and
illegal. Deputies will enforce
the law by confiscating illegal
fireworks. Repeat offenders
could be issued citations that
carry up to a $1,000 fine or face
arrest.
"We hope citizens will save
their money and leave the
pyrotechnics to the experts,"
said Sheriff Tom Knight.
Residents and visitors should
know that the only legal
fireworks are sparklers and
other novelties that stay on the
ground, such as glow worms,



I HOLIDAY CLOSINGS

Venice City Hall will be closed
in observance of Independence
Day, Wednesday, July 4. There
will be no collection of garbage,
yard waste or recycling. It will
be collected on the next regu-
larly scheduled day, Saturday.
The Venice fireworks display
will take place at sunset. The
display will be shot from the
jetties and will be visible from
area beaches and other places
in town. The South Jetty will
be closed July 4, and Tarpon
Center Drive will be closed to


snappers and smoke devices.
Parental supervision is recom-
mended when any of these is in
the hands of children.
Even sparklers require some
safety rules.
Legal "sparklers," as defined
by the Florida Division of
the State Fire Marshal office,
include snake or glow worms,
trick noisemakers, party pop-
pers, snappers and sparklers.
When handling sparklers, fol-
low these common-sense rules:
Children should not use
sparklers without very close
adult supervision.
Always remain standing
while using sparklers.
Never hold a child in your
arms while using sparklers.
Never hold or light -
more than one sparkler at a
time.
Sparklers and bare feet
can be a painful combination.

Never use sparklers indoors

South County commission candidates debate


By STEVEN J. SMITH
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Campaign funding.
Environmentally pro-
tected land. A critical
area plan. Economic
development.
These were a few of
the topics tackled at
Michael's On East, as
the Sarasota County
Commission District 3
candidates incum-
bent Republican
Christine Robinson
and Democrat Jennifer
Cohen attempted to
woo the support of the
Tiger Bay Club member-
ship, which sponsored
the event. District 3
covers most of the
southeastern part of the
county, bordering State
Road 72 in the north, to
parts of Venice and most
of North Port to the
south.
Cohen said she has
raised $9,000 for her
campaign so far without
help from any political
action committees.
"My belief is that (cam-
paign) money should
come from the people,"
Cohen said. "You are the
ones voting. You are the
ones who should pay
for my campaign, if you
want me in that office."
Robinson said she has
raised about $78,000 for
her campaign, ranging
from $5 and $10 contri-
butions, to the maximum
of $200.


"I've had a wide
range of contributions,"
Robinson said, due to
multiple fundraisers
predominantly in South
County. "And I do not
have a political action
committee at this time."
Cohen supported the
expansion of the county
commission from five
to seven members with
a single "yes." Robinson
disagreed.
"I've never seen a
problem taken care of by
adding more politicians,"
Robinson said.
One attendee
remarked that Sarasota
County now owns and
protects more than
16,000 acres in its
environmentally sensi-
tive lands program, and
asked if the program
should be expanded or
extended.


Robinson praised the
program, saying there are
plans to expand it into
ecotourism, specifically
at Warm Mineral Springs
Day Spa, which the
county owns jointly with
the city of North Port.
"The only caveat is that
we need to responsibly
manage those lands," she
said.
Cohen agreed.
"I wish we had 200,000
acres of preserved land,"
Cohen said. "We can't get
enough, but we need to
get our revenues up by
bringing back businesses
inside the county and
people to homes."
Next, an audience
member posed a question
about Critical Area Plans
- tools used in develop-
ing a strategy for how
land is developed that
may provide for increased

Bay Club, which spon-
sored the event.


allowances for
building heights.
"They're great
tools," Robinson
said of CAPs. "We
should be encouraging
folks to use them so we
have a comprehensive
community look and not
just a look with a piece
of property to adjacent
properties. They also
stimulate community
input."
"We have to make
sure that if you have
these plans in place that
the county as a whole
is moving in a forward
direction," Cohen
countered. "And I do not
approve of no limits to
high-rise buildings."
Another questioner
asked what the candi-
dates would do to spur
economic development
in Sarasota County.
"We need to help
people who want to
open a business to use
the current facilities
that we have available,"


Cohen said. "That saves
a lot of impact fees
for the business that's
coming in. Growth
must pay for growth.
And if you're going to
build a park or a facil-
ity, I would like to see it
revenue-generating."
Robinson referred to a
booklet she created when
she first entered office
called "Doing Business in
Sarasota County."
"It's available online,


it's available at our
chambers," Robinson
said. "Now you can go to
a booklet and find every
resource you will need
in Sarasota County for
permitting, for licenses,
everything in one spot.
That's a huge start to
making it a friendlier
business environment."
The primary election
will be held Aug. 14; the
general election is set for
Nov. 16.

Enterprise zone process finalized


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER
The Sarasota County Com-
mission unanimously adopted a
resolution last week that finalized
the county's Energy Economic
Zone incentive application
process and review.
The resolution implements
the EEZ pilot program adopted
by the county commission on
Feb. 22 and provides guidelines
for an applicant to request for
EEZ incentives. The city of Miami
Beach and Sarasota County were
chosen to implement the pilot
program for the state.


"This has been a long time in the
making," Commission Chair Chris-
tine Robinson said. "We've used
some of the guidelines that we've
set in our economic development
incentives and our other economic
development programs and
adopted those within this program.
We've also added some that are
optional for us to consider, which
were along the lines of the intent
of the energy economic zone."
The EEZ program is aimed
at businesses that make prod-
ucts designed to have greater
efficiency. It's also related to
Sarasota County's green business
partnership program, in which


companies have been certified for
conducting themselves in a more
energy-efficient way.
The total amount of state credits,
refunds and exemptions that can
be provided to any eligible business
as EEZ incentives is $300,000 in any
fiscal year. If the incentive cap isn't
used in any single state fiscal year,
the unused amount may be car-
ried forward for up to five years.
Companies can receive the
incentive if they are going to be a
clean technology business, expand
or build a new facility. Businesses
can also qualify for an incentive
for a state sales tax refund on their
building materials up to $5,000.


There are also job tax credit
incentives available. Businesses
must create at least five new full-
time jobs in clean technology
or green business research and
development, or 10 new full-time
jobs in green business manufac-
turing or industrial sectors.
Energy Economic Zones in
South County include an area on
South River Road near Englewood
Road and near the Jacaranda
Boulevard and Interstate 75
interchange. There are also several
small areas on EastVenice Avenue
and Center Road, and the State
Road 681 corridor between 1-75
and Tamiami Trail north of Venice.

crime spree
in Venice
and charged
S him with
carjack-

theft motor
vehicle,
NYDAM burglary,
grand theft,
and wearing a mask while

VPD to crack
down on holiday
drinking and driving
The Fourth of July
is one of the deadliest
holidays of the year. The
Venice Police Department
is stepping up enforce-
ment efforts as part of the
ongoing "Drive Sober or
Get Pulled Over" enforce-
ment crackdown to catch
and arrest impaired
drivers who put them-
selves and others at risk.
As part of the crackdown,
there will be roving and
saturation patrols, and
other law enforcement
methods.
"Too many people die
behind the wheel each
year due to those who
choose to drive after
drinking, so our officers
will be out in full force
this Fourth of July show-
ing zero tolerance for
impaired drivers," Traffic
Officer Andy Levesque
said.
According to the
National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration,
392 people were killed
in motor vehicle traffic
crashes during the 2010
Fourth of July holiday. Of
those fatalities, 39 per-
cent were in crashes
that involved at least
one driver or motorcycle


operator with a blood
alcohol concentration of
.08 or higher.
The Venice Police
Department recommends
these simple tips for a
safe Fourth of July:
Plan a safe way home
before the fun begins.
Before drinking,
designate a sober driver.
If you're impaired,
use a taxi, call a sober
friend or family member
or use public trans-
portation; or use the
AAA Tow to Go service
offered July 4-7 by calling
800-AAA-HELP.
If you happen to see a
drunk driver on the road,
don't hesitate to contact
the Venice Police Depart-
ment, 941-486-2444 or
911.
And remember, "Drive
Sober or Get Pulled Over."
If you know someone
who is about to drive or
ride while impaired, take
the keys and make other
arrangements.

County government website getting a makeover


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County
commissioners got a
sneak peek last week at
what will become the
new county government
website.
The new scgov.net
home page highlights the
theme "Sarasota County
Excels" and features
images that point out
the benefits of living
and working in Sarasota
County. The site, which is
updated to the technol-
ogy platform Microsoft
SharePoint, highlights
programs and services
available for citizens,
visitors and businesses.
A graphic banner can be
seen from most mobile
devices.
Input from county
residents at several focus
group meetings led to
the installation of a
dynamic search option
at the top of the page.
The intent is to help
users find information
quickly and easily; it will
be updated constantly.
The new site will feature
the county's logo in
brand colors blue and
green to help create
consistency with internal
and external communi-
cations and signs seen
around the county.
Users also wanted less
navigation and will get


their wish with a two-
step navigation process.
The size and color of
the main navigation bar
have been increased to
allow users to get the
information they need
with two clicks. Six
buttons have also been
added to the home page
for information on key
areas, including contact
information for county
commissioners and
county administration.
The center of the new
home page will promi-
nently feature a news
center and an image for
live TV video. A topics-
of-interest section at
the bottom of the page
contains links to com-
mission and economic
development initiatives,
public safety and public
information.
Commissioner Nora
Patterson appeared
pleased with the presen-
tation on the redesign at
the board's meeting.
"It looks like you've
done a great job," she
said. "I haven't played
with the new site yet, but
I look forward to it."
But Commissioner Joe
Barbetta voiced concern
about several aspects of
the scgov.net home page
- especially after using
the search bar.
"You have about 20 or
30 seconds to capture
somebody when they

come to your website,"
he said. "This is still real
busy in my opinion, and
the bottom of the page is
very busy. When you put
something in the search
bar (he asked for 'plan-
ning commission' to be
typed into the bar), you
get a bunch of links and
you still don't have one
name or email address
for any of the planning
commissioners."
"If your search bar isn't
dynamite, people are
moving on," he con-
tinued. "I guess I want
better links to the key
things in the community.
I know you're trying to
capture everything in
here, but I think it ends
up being a little too busy.
Sometimes simple is
better."
Commission Chair
Christine Robinson was
also in favor of changes
to the page's search
option.
"I think most of my
concern was that we
have consistent content
and allow for easy access
to content without too
many clicks around the
website, particularly in
the area of economic


development where
people don't have time
to be studying through
pages and pages of a
website," she said. "We
need to make that more
easily accessible."
Communications and
Enterprise Information
Technology provided
funding for the redesign,
which cost an estimated
$50,000. Funding comes
from a combination of
general and enterprise
funds. The investment
includes hardware and
software, design consul-
tation, focus group facili-
tation and promotion.
A preview link to

New business wins facade grant


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Brothers Peter and
Anthony Liakakos,
who recently opened
Bridgetown Delicatessen
& Market, 335 W.Venice
Ave., are the recipients
of the first facade grant
awarded byVenice
MainStreet Inc.
Acquiring two adjoin-
ing store spaces, they
made dramatic changes
to combine the units into
one store.
The Liakakoses
received a $1,000 award,
which will go toward the
work on the exterior of
their building.
"Peter and Anthony
have created one beauti-
ful space out of two, and
the new facade freshens
the 300 block of Venice
Avenue," said Kate


Heddings, president of
Venice MainStreet.
The facade for the
new deli and market was
the creation of architect
Michael Courville of
Osprey. Removing a
dividing wall and intro-
ducing a flat appearance
created the space they
needed, and the facade
sign is complemented
with a bracket sign over
the sidewalk, all coordi-
nated with the Venetian
theme.
"In addition to the
re-stuccoed exterior, the
floors were painted to
match and the exterior
woodwork treated," said
Peter Liakakos. "The
work delayed our open-
ing, but Rich Landers
Stucco of Venice did an
excellent job making
it an award-winning
finish."


Limited to the Main-
Street district, the grant
program is designed to
provide an economic
incentive for private
property and business
owners to improve build-
ing facades and make
their storefronts more
attractive.
The deli has gotten off
to a good start.
"We have been
a lot busier than
we expected," said
Liakakos.
Popular menu items
include the Bridgetown
33 Classic BLT and the
PrettyWoman Panini.
They are planning to add
delivery to local busi-
nesses soon.
The deli opens
daily at 8 a.m. Call
941-882-4063.

turing Committee.


Back in business at age


"It's good to be home,"
said Gene Stupleman,
who at age 77 is opening
his 16th business, Geno's
Discount Merchandise,
231 W. Miami Ave. He
had operated Venice
Cotton & Handbags on
West Venice Avenue for
10 years, until 2008.
Everything will be
discounted in the new
store, including art-
work, pictures, jewelry,
watches, bed sheets,
handbags, toys, novelties
and beachwear.
In Washington, D.C.,
he opened a coffee shop
and he had a delicates-
sen in Maryland, then


moved to Florida,
opening a breakfast-
and-lunch restaurant in
Sanford. Now in his 26th
year in the wholesale
distribution business,
he supplies jewelry, toys
and novelties to beach
stores and hotels. He
had a showroom for 10
years in Southbridge
Park. For five years he
has had a retail store in
Fort Myers. Visiting his
Venice travel agent on
West Miami Avenue, he
saw this store and leased
it immediately.

Excellence award
Linda R. Collins, C.EP,
and Joni Gauthier, of
Edward Jones Financial
Services, 1740 E. Venice
Ave., recently received
their company's Client
Service Excellence
award. They were a No. 1
client service provider
in this region and in the
top 25 percent of client
service providers in the
country, based on the
results of a survey in
which clients were asked
to rank the service they
received.
Collins' branch office
was one of only 218
branches to receive
the award out of the
firm's more than 12,000
branch offices. Call
941-412-1014.


Preparations
begin
Internal build-out is
planned to begin this
month for the new,
larger Kumo Japanese
Steakhouse & Sushi,
to open in the recently
renovated Jacaranda
Plaza along U.S. 41
Bypass.
Plans are to open
the new location in
late October or early
November, offering a
more comfortable dining
experience in a restau-
rant double the size of
the current location,
said Lily Ren, general
manager.
Since 2007, Kumo has
operated in the Villa
Venezia Plaza on East
Venice Avenue. It will
continue there until the
end of August, when
the lease expires. The
new location will seat
250 diners and provide
employment for between


20 and 30 people.
Ren invites diners
to visit the new Kumo
restaurants in North
Port and on Sarasota's
University Parkway while
waiting for the new loca-
tion to open.

Collecting
supplies
In the fourth annual
Back to School Supply
Drive, local Fifth Third
Bank South Florida
offices are partnering
with the Education
Foundation of Manatee
to collect school sup-
plies for the increasing
number of schools facing
supply shortages caused
by budget and funding
cuts.
Between July 9 and
Aug. 1, all of the bank's
branches in Sarasota
and Manatee counties
are accepting glue sticks,
crayons, index cards,
pens, pencils, pink


erasers, paper, two-
pocket folders, dry-erase
markers, spiral note-
books, binders, rulers,
markers, hand sanitizer,
disinfecting wipes and
flash drives.
"With this drive, we're
striving to help children
and families by providing
them with the tools for
success," said David Call,
president and CEO of
Fifth Third Bank South
Florida.

Conventioneers may stay locally


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

"You could go on vacation
and rent out your home to
guests who are willing to pay
big dollars," said Laura Kopple,
Realtor/owner of Laura Kopple
Inc. Realtors, 4343 South
Tamiami Trail. "We certainly
have properties in our rental
program for a minimum
weekly stay."
Creating a big need for
accommodations out of season
is the Republican National
Convention in Tampa this
summer.
"With a shortage of hotel
rooms in the Tampa area, this
is an exciting opportunity for
the public and Realtors to rent
their own homes, investment
properties and any unoc-
cupied rental properties to
visiting delegates, families,
media and others," said
Marlene Merkle, executive vice
president of the Venice Area
Board of Realtors.
Sarasota County beaches are
rated the best in the country,
providing unprecedented


opportunities for local
residents to earn extra bucks
renting their homes.
From Aug. 27 to 30, 2,286
delegates, 2,125 alternate
delegates and approximately
15,000 media from all 50
states will attend this conven-
tion at the Tampa Bay Times
Forum.
"An additional 50,000
attendees are expected," said
Jennifer Thompson-Kersting,
vice president of sales and
marketing for My Florida
Regional Multiple Listing Ser-
vice. "Here is an opportunity
to market short-term rentals
to convention attendees with
intentions they will arrive in
Florida early and stay after the
convention ends."
"Go away on vacation and
rent out your home," said
Kopple, "Venice is certainly
a lot less hectic than St. Pete
beach for vacationers, and
from Tampa much less than
the two hours people often
travel to their offices."
Properties desired
range from studio condos
to large homes located


within a 100-mile radius of
the convention site, said
Thompson-Kersting.
"Property owners interested
in renting their property can
get exposure and the general
public looking for rentals
can contact any of the 32,000
licensed Realtor members
who have the ability to enter
and search properties on our
system," she said.
Using the services of a
Realtor is recommended for
liability reasons.
Professional Realtors know,
for example, that there are
penalties for renting without
collecting taxes, and statutes
require working fire extinguish-
ers and smoke alarms in homes.
Thompson-Kersting said
the response from Realtor
members either marketing
properties as available for
rental during the convention
has been very positive.
For more information, call
Laura Kopple Inc. Realtors,
4343 South Tamiami Trail, 941-
493-3359 or your Realtor.

In November, Florida voters
will have a chance to support
property tax relief that would
touch every Florida taxpayer and
restore fairness for all taxpayers.
Amendment 4, if approved
by voters, will create a property
tax increase cap of 5 percent
each year on nonhomestead
real estate, down from the
current 10 percent cap.
It will also give some first-time
homebuyers a property tax break
that decreases over time. Anyone
who hasn't had a homestead
exemption in Florida for three
years will have property tax dis-
count of 50 percent of the home's
assessed value, not to exceed the

median homestead value in the
county. This exemption phases
out for the property owner over
five years while the Save Our
Homes cap is phasing in.
And another big plus: The
measure also allows the Florida
Legislature to prohibit assess-
ment increases when property
values fall.
To recap: Amendment 4
caps assessment increases
for nonhomestead property,
creates a first-time home buyer
homestead exemption and
paves the way to end recapture.
Florida Realtors support the
passage of Amendment 4 and
hope you will as well.
On another note, I am
pleased to report that the Venice
Area Board of Realtors Hot Dogs
for Habitat event raised $650 for
our Habitat House in Garden
Park. We are well on our way to
meeting our $85,000 goal.

SARASOTA'S EXAMPLE
Key changes to the Sarasota police pension fund:
* Cost-of-living adjustment is reduced from 3.2 percent to 1 percent
per year for future years of service, but does not begin until policemen
reach age 65.
* The averaging period of the pension is increased from the last three
years worked to five years. Overtime pay included in the calculation
would be limited to 300 hours per year.
* The normal form of benefit payment is changed from a 67 percent
joint and survivor annuity to a 10-year certain and life thereafter
annuity.
* The interest credit rate for the Deferred Retirement Option Program
is reduced from 6.5 percent to 2.5 percent per year.
As usual, the savings to the city are based on certain assumptions.
Among them: pension fund investment returns will reach 7.5 percent;
salaries will increase annually from 3.1 percent to 13.3 percent based on
credited service; and normal retirement age is 65.
* The changes affect only those members who retire after the ordi-
nance's effective date.

He wanted to see for
himself the reaction
to Sarasota's pension
reforms.
"Anybody who is
reasonable and thinking
about this issue would
see it as a victory to some
extent," Carlesimo said,
in light of the ongoing
trend in the private sector
to replace defined ben-
efits plans with defined
contribution plans.
Many in "the rank and
file understand that con-
ditions have changed and
everybody in the country
is making some sacrifice,"
he said. "While this may
be distasteful at this time,
the fact that they left the
defined benefit plan in
place is, in itself, a victory
because in the future,
when economic condi-
tions turn around, there's
always the possibly of
incrementally increasing
benefits..."
Many reforms adopted
by the city of Sarasota are
the same reforms council
previously discussed, like

the same page," Bennett
said. "Those issues really
haven't changed."
He embraces the
moderate tag.
"I stay away from
the far edges," he said,
"partly because I don't
think they work. But I
don't disregard those
positions. They have
value.
"My big objective is
to be pragmatic, to get
things done that need to
get done, and to resolve
community conflict in
ways that most benefit
people. We can't just do
things that make more
people happy than not.
You have to balance
people's interests as best
you can."


lengthening the number
of earning years used to
compute the pension,
reducing the cost of living

the amount of overtime
that can be used when
calculating the pension.
Overtime can quickly and
dramatically boost pen-

resulting in significantly

Some city council
members have openly
supported the defined

At first Sarasota's
commission proposed

strongly opposed by the

Sarasota plan adopted
on Monday appears to be

attention. We don't want
to go down that road
for another three years
and spend $250,000 in
attorney fees. I'm looking
for ways to shorten it and
keep attorney fees down."
"Linn gave us all the
solutions being consid-
ered across the state,"
Carlesimo said. "He gave
us a snapshot of those
which produced immedi-
ate savings and those that
give long-term solutions.
My interpretation, and
Sarasota's, was in order
to get immediate relief

benefit plan with reduc-
tions in benefits. It's as

"You will see me
continue to be somewhat
of a watchdog," Bennett
said. "I usually get into
some areas some others
don't, and yell if I see
something going off
track. I have that search-
light on. I will continue
that."
Two council seats
are up for election this
year. Incumbent Emilio
Carlesimo announced
earlier he will seek also
re-election.
The filing deadline for
either seat is Sept. 7 at
noon. Election Day is
Nov. 6.

OUR VIEW



USA: 236 years young and counting


Party time.
Go ahead, Wednesday is your
big day. You deserve it.
It was 236 years ago that John
Hancock, et al., declared themselves
free and clear of the strings of
Mother England and jump-started a
worldwide revolutionary movement
toward freedom that continues to this
day. So with all due respect to the
Union Jack and the London Olym-
pics, etc. July 4 is our day to fly the
red, white and blue, and celebrate the
freedom to do pretty much what-
ever we want within the bounds of
civility (hopefully) and the law (most
definitely.)
Which means stepping out and
attending events throughout the day
and, as always, taking in the fireworks
at dusk.
Here's where to go locally:
Punta Gorda-Charlotte Harbor:
The fireworks go up at 9 p.m. over the
Peace River, so watch from either side


of the river or by boat.
Before that, though, there are
plenty of activities throughout the
day at the Fourth Fest in Laishley
Park. The popular Boogiemen head
the list of performers. Note also that
along with everything else, 12 inflat-
able water slides will be on hand for
the kids.
At 6 p.m., the Charlotte Symphony
Orchestra performs a patriotic concert
at the Charlotte Harbor Event and
Conference Center. It's reasonably
priced: only $15 for adults and $5 for
kids.
And, of course, grab your most
colorful bathing suit and join the
crowd making the annual swim across
the Peace River. The Freedom Swim
starts late this year 2 p.m. on the
north side of the southbound U.S. 41
bridge. It ends at Harpoon Harry's in
Fishermen's Village.
The Lemon Bay Sunrise Rotary
is back this year with its July Fourth


Cajun Fest on Dearborn Street in Olde
Englewood. The event was wildly
successful last year, and organizers
are expecting a bigger splash this time
around. Expect food and craft booths,
water slides and a bounce house for
children. The drawing card is Cajun
music and Cajun food served through-
out the day.
At 9 p.m., fireworks ("Light Up
Lemon Bay") will be set off from
Middle Beach in Manasota Key. View
from the key or the mainland.
North Port High School (on Price
Boulevard) is home to the ninth
annual Freedom Festival beginning
at 6 p.m. There's live music featuring
(appropriately) the band American
Made throughout the evening, games
and rides for the kids, plus food and
other vendors. If the kids are bounc-
ing off the walls at this point in the
day, it might be helpful to know that
the kiddie park features nine inflat-
ables. Don't miss the spaghetti- and


hot dog-eating contests.
Fireworks by Garden State Fire-
works begin at 9 p.m., with a musical
accompaniment through the football
stadium's loudspeaker system.
Love a parade? Drive out to
Arcadia for the annual Independence
Day Parade, which gets under way at
10 a.m. Afterward, stop by the Elks
Lodge for a cookout. At 1 p.m., the
Ranch Rodeo begins at the Turner
Agri-Civic Center. Donations are $10
per adult, $5 per child, with proceeds
benefiting Tidewell Hospice.
Fireworks go up at the Turner
Center starting at dusk.
It's all fireworks in Venice, with the
annual fireworks show sponsored by
the Sertoma Club of Venice and the
city beginning at dusk at the South
Jetty. Viewing is good along the beach
on the island and from other side of
the jetty on Casey Key.
No excuses. Fly your colors. Wear
your colors. Party like it's 1776.


Onfreedom


Writing this on the Fourth of
July Eve, the word "freedom"
keeps circulating through my
thoughts.
While we do seem to have
more and more restrictions
coming out of our leadership
under the guise of national
security after that terrible day
in September 2001, at times I
still think that I, as a citizen of
this great nation, often take my
freedom for granted. The only
real restriction that I know is
absolute is, you don't break
the law, even though at times
there are obscure laws that
seem wacky. And you must pay
your taxes. After recent events
it seems as if there will be a big
debate on that one for months,
but either way, we pay them.
Back to what I think I take
for granted.
The first thing is being able
to write what I feel without
censorship, and get it pub-
lished. (Mr. Mudge is a big help
in that arena.) I have been in
the news and advertising busi-
ness for almost 30 years, I have
read many newspapers and I
can't recall ever wondering if
the government had any role
in the content. It's a given that
it doesn't. We should cherish
this freedom, as this is not the
case throughout the world.
A couple of Thursdays
back I woke up and decided
to take a trip back home. I
packed, loaded up the kids and
suitcases and happily drove
through five states. Never
once was there a checkpoint,
although there were several
instances of police waiting for
speeders. Never did I have to
provide "papers" to any local
authority. I just drove to where
I had chosen without incident.
I think this is a huge freedom I
take for granted.
In some places in the world
leaving your town requires
checking in and getting
permission from whatever
agency is deemed the watcher
of travel. As long as my truck is
in good mechanical condition,
I am free to move about our
country without interference,


and I do so without hesitation
or fear.
I have the freedom and
means to go to a grocery store
and choose the food my kids
and I will consume for a week
or so at a time. At the same
time I am deciding whether
to get the kids ice cream or
cookies, there are parents in
this world who can't feed their
children and feel hopeless as
they don't know where their
next meal will come from.
I take for granted those
young men and women who
stand guard tonight in order
for us to enjoy our Fourth
of July celebrations the
fireworks and the displays of
national pride. Members of our
military do not decide where
they will go to protect and
serve us citizens; they follow
orders and risk life and limb
for us. My heart goes out to the
families of those who served
past and present, especially
those who gave up their lives
defending our republic and
that for which it stands.
I thinkWorld War II veterans
are taken more for granted
with each passing year. Behind
the eyes of every man and
woman who served during that
awful time are stories of brav-
ery, tragedy and horror that
most of us will never know.
This generation not only went
out and did the near impos-
sible defeating Germany,
Italy and Japan but it came
home and rebuilt our nation
with the same tenacity it gave
us in the war.
This generation understood
freedom; fought for freedom in
some of the most hostile envi-
ronments recorded in wartime;
rebuilt this land; and shaped
our future without complain-
ing. They just put their boots
on and did what they knew
should be done.
The next time you get a little
put off by an older gentlemen's
mistake as he is driving his wife
to a doctor's appointment, it
just may be the same guy who
flew a plane over hostile Ger-
many, or who captained a war-
ship in the Pacific. It may even
be the guy who drove a jeep
across a bridge in Germany
under heavy enemy gunfire.
Whatever the case may be, give
him a break as he darn sure did
not make many mistakes back
in the '40s, now did he?
Happy Fourth of July,
America.

Solo act. Just finished
reading a letter from a Mr.
O'Berry, owner of Nifty Nic
Nacs outlining the things he
does to attract customers to
his store. I think he is a very
savvy marketer, but he's speak-
ing for himself. The bulk of the
stores on West Venice and West
Tampa avenues don't do a darn
thing to notify customers.
Copy O'Berry. I have not
received a flyer from any store
downtown in 13 years. I think
that many of these merchants
should take a look at what Mr.
O'Berry is doing and emulate
him. For example, he sends out
an email newsletter that tells
of local events. He's so help-
ful. A lot of these stores don't
do a darn thing to advertise,
promote or keep their custom-
ers notified of anything that's
going on. A lot of people would
be happy to receive an email
sent to them telling them
about a discount or sale.
Too much. If you want
garbage pickup more than
once a week, you've got too
much garbage. Try buying less
or buying sensibly or recycle
it. It's not necessary more than
once a week and it's too costly
and selfish.
Bill roulette. I had a two-
year contract for my TV,
computer and telephone. My
contract was up, so I called the
business. I was paying $157.64
and they said it would be a
dollar more for the box. I got a
bill for $159.33. I called about
the bill and they sent me a bill
for $175.79. I got another bill
for $147. I wonder what my
next bill will be?
Bad bikes. Bob Mudge was
right when he stated that bicy-
clists are the worst for obeying
traffic signs. If Venice wants to
be known as a bicycle-friendly
town, there's a severe problem
with bicycle riders, at least on
the island. You can't regularly
drive on the island without
encountering the problem,
especially west of 41. Bicyclists


Let 'em


Have It
blow through stop signs and
sometimes even lights without
even looking. The situation
is bad and getting worse, and
before long there's going to be
a tragedy. I pity the poor driver
who hits someone on a bicycle
due to the cyclist's reckless
riding behavior. There needs
to be some sort of campaign to
address this problem.
Reregister. Those who are
Independents won't be able to
vote for any of the Republican
candidates running for county
commission, charter review
board or maybe some other
races. They need to reregister
for one of the parties, and I rec-
ommend the Republican, even
if you're as disgusted with the
Republicans as I am. You need
to reregister so you'll at least
be able to vote in the primary.
Otherwise, you'll be locked out
of voting for these seats. Also, it
needs to be published that for
anybody who is not a citizen
of the United States who votes
there is a $5,000 fine or five
years in jail. I think that needs
to be on the front page so that
people who have been voting
who shouldn't have been voting
will think twice and not vote.


Cycles. Think college is
costly? Consider what it costs
in Venice to produce a high
school graduate. The taxpay-
ers' bill for schooling is at
least $100,000 and the total
family in taxpayer cost is likely
$200,000. We're now offering
them a $10-an-hour job. If he
had to pay off the $200,000 at
5 percent interest for 30 years,
his payment would be about
$1,075 a month. After making
this payment, he would have
about $650 a month for taxes,
job expenses, food, housing
and insurance. At age 48, with
this long payoff, a high school
graduate could start a family to
continue this insane process.
Not fur food. We don't eat
in restaurants where dogs are
around.
All wet. Are we really going
to allow Neal Communities to
put 1,999 homes at River and
Fletcher? What is the elevation
there? River always floods. It
floods now. We're paying all
this flood insurance. We can-
not permit this. Please, council
people!
Editor's Note: The area Neal
is planning to develop isn't in
the city of Venice.
Condescension. American
citizens are guaranteed the
right to vote. I am a citizen and
have to have a photo ID to vote.
It's a good way to prevent voter
fraud. True and honest U.S. citi-
zens can find other valid ways
to prove their right to vote. If
not, they're trying to steal an
election. Why? For pay? The
errors in validating voters' rules
can be corrected, but not for
keeps. The claim that black and
Hispanic minorities would be
discriminated against is absurd.
These so-called minorities are
some of our most honest and
valued citizens and they can
prove it. How can the blacks
and Hispanics not shout out
against condescension? Voters
are either legal or illegal. Who's
trying to sneak something over
on us? What are they afraid of?

:WEDNESDAY, JULY 4,2012


endence Day, yesterday and today


FRANK
PATTI
GUEST COLUMNIST

The Fourth of July brings
back many thoughts of
how the U.S. has changed
over the years, and not
always for the good.
I remember when the
people of this country
were willing to sacrifice
for its survival. During
World War II, I remember
waking up one morning
and all the metal gates
on the fences in front of
the six family homes in
Ridgewood, Brooklyn,
were missing. There was
no mystery as to where
they went: They were


taken for scrap metal for
the war effort and no one
complained.
The same attitude
existed with rationing of
food and gasoline, and
all the shortages. Why no
complaints? Because our
country was in danger
and almost all the families
in Ridgewood and all
of Brooklyn had sons,
fathers, husbands and
other relatives fighting in
the armed forces.
When my Air Force
group was activated in
1961 and was told that we
were going to be shipped
overseas to Germany, of
350 men in our unit only
two did not go. One was
in the hospital with a leg
broken in several places


and he still wanted to go,
even on crutches.
The officers in my
squadron and group were
for the most partWorld
War II veterans who had
flown some of the worst
missions in the war and
then served in the Korean
War. This was their third
tour of duty and they were
still willing to sacrifice for
their country.
When I see what has
developed in our culture
of violent protests, I can
understand how we have
a generation of "occupi-
ers" whose demands are
obnoxious. These "occupi-
ers" want something for
nothing: free education,
government-provided jobs
and an end to capitalism


(although they have no
idea what to replace it with
in order to provide jobs).
They profess that they
do not love their country,
they give nothing and a
percentage of them protest
violently and destroy
property. When asked what
they want, there is not a
cohesive answer among
them except: I am owed.
I feel very concerned for
the future of this country
... and then I see the faces
of the men and women
in our armed forces and
I feel pride and hope.
How many have lost their
lives or come home with
disabilities to keep the
spirit of the Declaration of
Independence alive and
defend the Constitution


of the United States? They
sacrificed so much for the
country and its citizens,
which includes freedom of
speech for those aimless
occupiers.
It was not the Declara-
tion of Independence that
set America free, it was
the people who fought
in its army, the women
who made clothes and
bandages and brought
water to the troops, that
made this nation free. It
was leaders like George
Washington, Nathanael
Greene and Alexander
Hamilton and the signers
of the Declaration who
put their lives and for-
tunes in danger to create
a new nation. Without the
determination of these


colonial people there
would be no Constitu-
tion and the Declaration
of Independence would
have been just another
piece of paper that was
never instituted.
In the words of John F
Kennedy, the 35th presi-
dent of the United States,
"Ask not what your country
can do for you, ask what
you can do for your coun-
try." Generations kept this
motto, and if the Founding
Fathers and the army of
the 13 colonies had not
believed this, there would
be no Independence Day
on the Fourth of July.

Frank Patti is secretary
of the Republican Party of
Sarasota County.


I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Only GOP
will have a say
Editor:
Jon Thaxton, newly
term-limited-out
District 5 Sarasota County
commissioner, officially
declared that he doesn't
understand the concept
of term limits.
Thaxton filed, as a
Republican, to run for
the position of county
supervisor of elections.
Thaxton had filed in Feb-
ruary for his fourth term
as commissioner, even
though county voters
overwhelmingly approved
a charter amendment
referendum in 1998 limit-
ing commissioners to two
terms.
Presumably, Thaxton
determined the results
of this referendum to
be invalid regarding
himself, considering that
registered Democrats
and voters listing other,
or no, party affiliation
were allowed to partici-
pate, a convenient court


judgment staying the
implementation of the
results of that referendum
notwithstanding.
On May 10, the Florida
Supreme Court ruled that
the votes of registered
Democrats and those
voters listing other, or
no, party affiliation do
indeed count, even in
Sarasota County. This
decision moved Thaxton,
according to published
news reports, to weigh
his "options." These
briefly included the pos-
sibility of having to get a
real job.
Thaxton will run in
the August GOP primary
against incumbent
Supervisor of Elections
and fellow Republican
Kathy Dent.
Also, another Repub-
lican, Victoria Ann Brill,
filed for the position of
supervisor of elections,
but as a "no-party-affilia-
tion" write-in candidate.
As a direct and
intended result of Brill's
"no-party" write-in


candidacy, the Repub-
lican primary will be
closed to registered
Democrats and voters
listing other, or no, party
affiliation.
This calculated move
by Republicans effec-
tively turns the "election"
of Sarasota County
supervisor of elections
by all Sarasota County
voters into a "choice" by
Sarasota County Republi-
cans. (Except in the case
that a local Democrat
can come up with the
$6,972.72 cost to file
at this late point in the
cycle.)
With 148,827 non-
Republican registered
Sarasota County voters
purposely and under-
handedly disenfran-
chised, it seems certain
that neither Mr. Thaxton,
nor Ms. Dent would be
likely to seek a court
injunction staying the
results of this "election."

The view from
Eastern Europe
Editor:
Travel can make us
think about things in a
different way. Some mus-
ings after a recent trip
through Eastern Europe:
The key to getting
ahead in the Eastern
countries? The Euro-
peans firmly believe
it's proficiency in the
English language. How
ironic that many in our
own country choose
to minimize, reject or
ignore that.
Tax policies abso-
lutely change people's
behavior. Overtax and
demonize the rich to
give to the poor? Ulti-
mately, the rich will
find a way around it,
probably with unin-
tended and unwanted
consequences.
The practice of politi-
cians campaigning by
giving "goodies" to the
voters is apparently
universal. Eastern


Europeans recognize
and cynically reject
that approach. But
does it work in our own
country?
Many people liked the
cradle-to-grave commu-
nist system and the older
generation still misses it
to some degree. However,
sooner or later people
reject it, even at their own
expense.
A communist or
socialist system stresses
"equality" and "fairness."
However, party members
drove on better roads,
ate in better restaurants,
lived in better houses,
traveled widely and
generally had a more
privileged lifestyle. Is that
similar to our country
where federal legisla-
tors receive a generous
pension, fly on private
jets and are exempt from
the dreaded government
healthcare? And who
decides what "fair" is?
Could it be that same
small group of people?
Eastern Europeans


risked (and lost) their
lives to be able to vote
and have that vote mean
something. They think
it's funny that anyone
would complain about
not being able to vote
on Sunday (they're just
happy to be in church) or
showing identification at
the polls.
Capitalism and free
markets aren't easy or
fun. They require hard
work, motivation, sacri-
fice and perhaps a bit of
risk-taking and luck. They
undoubtedly leave some
people behind. However,
strong family ties and a
willingness to take any
job or create a small
home business provide
a safety net. The bottom
line is, Eastern Europe
had a chance to experi-
ence a variety of systems
and overwhelmingly
chose capitalism.
Is there anything we
can learn here?

HIGH SCHOOL SOFTBALL




Sosnoski resigns coaching jobs


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

For the first time in his 12
years in Florida, Venice's Fred
Sosnoski won't be coaching
a sport when the fall season
begins.
The Venice High varsity softball
head coach and junior varsity
football head coach resigned
from his positions last week.
Sosnoski took a position as a
world history and social stud-
ies teacher at SKY Academy in
Venice.
"Instead of teaching ESE
(exceptional student education)
at Venice, I am going back to
what I've been teaching for the
last 12 years," he said.
He resigned, he said, "due to
conflicts with their schedule (at
SKY Academy) during the day
where they require teachers to


be on campus until 4 p.m. Not
conducive to my new responsi-
bly at SKY Academy. Not being
able to be on campus and be
there immediately after school.
Detrimental to the program not
being there."
"Unfortunate to lose him,"
said Venice High athletics
director Pete Dombroski. "He
put a lot of effort in the softball
program and put in 100 percent.
Unfortunately, his career took
him into another avenue."
Dombroski said he plans on
having a new coach in place by
the beginning of September.
Sosnoski has been only coach-
ing Venice High softball one
season. He coached four years at
Saint Stephen's Episcopal in Bra-
denton, and four years before
coming to Venice he coached at
Lemon Bay High in Englewood,
including two years as baseball


junior varsity coach and one
year as varsity baseball coach.
Sosnoski said it was "an
extremely difficult decision.
It was not fair to the kids and
the girls team. They have had
so many coaches the last few
years (in softball). The team has
a great amount of talent. I truly
think they will be able to win
a district title this upcoming
season and maybe play for a
state championship in a season
or two as well."
Last season, the Lady Indians
finished with a 7-17 record.
Their season ended with a loss
to eventual champion Braden
River in the Class 7A-District
11 semifinal. Their offense
struggled to score just 79 runs.
The new coach will have a lot
to work with this season as the
Lady Indians only graduated
three seniors.


At one time this season, Venice
started three or four freshman as
well as two or three sophomores.
"I was talking to assistant
athletic director (and football
coach) Mike Bartlett and told
him this is the first time I haven't
been at football conditioning
in seven years," Sosnoski said.
"My heart will always been in
coaching and miss 100 percent
being in weight room for foot-
ball team. ... I got into teaching
because I was a coach first. Now,
the transition is to me being a
teacher first."
Sosnoski, who would like
to coach in the future, plans
on taking an online master's
program in educational leader-
ship, then taking the Florida
administrator's exam to become
a vice principal or principal.

Celebrating America's birthday

"A Tapestry of Freedom," by Venice
resident Joel Kreiss, incorporates lines
from the United States' most important
documents, including the Declaration

of the United States of America.
We gather today, each in our own

'A Lesson From Aloes'


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

By any name, apart-
heid is not a good thing.
That is but one lesson
to be learned from Ban-
yan Theater's production
of "A Lesson From Aloes,"
its first offering of the
summer.
For the 11th season,
Jerry Finn's theater dem-
onstrates that this area
appreciates year-round
theater, especially quality
productions such as this
latest Banyan effort.
Set in South Africa in
1963, "Aloes" is a mystery
with multiple crimes
and multiple victims, all
the result of the law of
apartheid. With just three
characters, playwright
Athol Fugard depicts
some of the most insidi-
ous aspects of apartheid.
Piet Bezuidenhout
(Peter Thomasson)
and his English wife,
Gladys (Sara Morsey),
are a white couple
who have been close
friends to Steve Daniels


(Ron Bobb-Semple)
and his family. That
the Danielses are black
may be why the long
arm of the law reaches
into the Bezuidenhout
home, taking Gladys'
diaries as evidence of
some sort, leaving her a
mental wreck and full of
insecurities.
When met in the gar-
den of their home in Port
Elizabeth, South Africa, it
seems that she is pos-
sibly recovering from a
nervous breakdown or
about to have a relapse
and that he is either in
serious denial about
the political situation or
worse.
Piet no longer farms
the family homestead.
Instead, he raises aloes,
identifying each one by
its Latin name, literally
escaping into the fleshy-
leafed plants rather than
deal with the political
changes in South Africa.
As we meet him, he
seems more concerned
about identifying his
latest plant than in

preparing the house for
the arrival of Steve and
his family for dinner.
Piet and Gladys are a
couple, yet each is alone
in the way in which they
deal with the changes
foisted on them and
their friend Steve and


his family. Piet and
Steve are natives of the
country but the new
laws have adversely
affected both. Gladys,
as a native of England,
is even more isolated.
Can she even trust her
husband?


Doubts escalate and
the more we learn about
these three people and
Steve's family, the more
insidious is the tale.
Michael Newton
Brown's set simply
depicts the garden
and bedroom of the


Bezuidenhout's home-
stead in Port Elizabeth,
complete to the name
"Xanadu" on the gate.
Lighting by Michael
Pasquini adds dimension
to the setting. Timothy
Beltley designed the
costumes. Kim Crow was
the dialect coach.
Housed for the sum-
mer in the Cook Theatre
at the Florida State Uni-
versity for the Perform-
ing Arts, Banyan Theatre
offers three plays that
educate, elucidate and
entertain. Following
"Aloes" are "The Piano
Teacher" (July 19-Aug. 5)
and "Crimes of the
Heart" (Aug. 9-26).
"Aloes" continues to
July 15. Tickets are $28.50
per person for one show,
$52 for two shows and
$70 for three. There will
be play discussions fol-
lowing the performances
on July 5 and 12. Call

Broadway Palm brings it with 'Grease


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR

"You're the one that I
want, oo-oo-oo."
There's something


catchy about that tune
that warms up the audi-
ence at Broadway Palm
Theatre's rendition of
"Grease," now on stage


through Aug. 18.
Get your dancing shoes
on for all of the popular
songs that made this
1978 big-screen musical


a huge hit in the U.S. and
across the globe. With
Amy Marie McCleary's
stage direction and well-
choreographed dance


routines, and Loren
Strickland's superb musi-
cal direction, the play is a
hit again.
The music started
15 minutes early with
Strickland (keyboards)
and his merry music men
playing '50s music from
the back of the stage. On
opening night, rounding
out the orchestra were
Tom Weaver, guitar;
Gordon Edgerton, sax;
and Gary Leone, drums.
A class reunion and
"Welcome Back Rydell


High Class of '59" opens
the play, taking us back
in time via such songs as
"Shake, Rattle and Roll,"
"The Twist," and Brenda
Lee's soulful hit, "I'm
Sorry."
Guys in tight-fitting
black jeans and black
leather jackets, with
cigarettes drooping from
their lips, depict the rise
of some frustrated teens
in the '50s trying to act
cool. It was a time of hot

FST Improv adds spice to lazy summer nights


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR

Just when you're won-
dering if there's anything
left to laugh about in
this slowly recovering
economy, Florida Studio
Theatre brings back its
improve season.
Theatergoers can enjoy
one or more of several
nights at FST's Goldstein
Cabaret, where the the-
ater's homegrown troupe
of revelers bring down the
house.
Here a night of laughter
costs a mere $12 a seat and
promises bright, crisp ban-
tering among players and
cajoling based on sugges-
tions from the audience.
On Saturday night, Adam
Ratner led five improvi-
sors along a journey of
dialogue in skits that often


took cues from audience
members.
One skit was "awkward
superhero moments."
Chris Friday attempted
flying across the stage
from the stairs and ended
up falling down with a big
thud.
In another scene, Chris-
tine Alexander riffed on
"something you don't want
to hear from your doctor":
"I'm so excited. ... You're
my first surgery."
Something that always
brings laughter is the
puppeteer skit, when two
audience members stand
behind two actors and
maneuver their arms and
legs. The puppeteers make
the actors move across the
stage and sometimes crash
into each other, bringing
bursts of laughter. Often,
another actor joins the


pairs and one puppeteer
must handle two actors
instead of one, really caus-
ing an uproar.
The act that continues to
bring side-splitting laughs
is the "signing" by Alexan-
der of a story being told by
another actor.
On Saturday, Angel
Parker was being inter-
viewed by Tim Beasley,
who portrayed a radio
announcer. Parker was
a "quilting expert" who
described in deadpan
fashion where she lived
and what she encounters
in the quilting process.
Cockroaches? Alexander
crossed her eyes, stomped
her feet and made various
gestures that reflected the
back story and real human
reaction to Parker's tale.
More improve is on tap,
with shows planned for


July 7, 14, 21 and 28 and
Aug. 4, 11, 18 and 25 at
8 p.m. in the Goldstein
Cabaret, 1241 N. Palm Ave.,
Sarasota.
The fourth annual
improve festival is planned
for July 20 and 21, when
some 10 improve troupes
will perform through-
out each day. A festival
pass costs $40 for all
performances; or $10 for
an individual show or
$29 for just one night of
performances.
Improv workshops
will be offered for those
interested in trying it out
or honing their improve
skills at a cost of $29.

Website lists


pet sitters

STAFF REPORT

DogVacay.com is a new site that lists real
homes where people can let their dog stay
while they're away.
The site is available nationwide and
throughout Canada. The company received
lots of buzz when it initially launched out of
Los Angeles and New York a few months ago.
DogVacay gives dog owners an alternative
to expensive kennel-cage boarding. Expe-
rienced dog lovers can sign up to host dogs
and receive a small fee (starting at $15 or $20
per night). Often, the hosts have other dogs
and big yards, and some are even retired vets
or pet trainers.
Some couples on the site say that your dog
can sleep in their bed, if that's what your dog
is used to at home. And you'll get photos of
your dog's vacation.
Founders are the husband-and-wife team
Aaron and Karine Hirschhorn. They gave up

cars, rival gangs, fitting in

Danny Zuko (Jamey
Isenor) fell in love with
Sandy Dumbrowski
(Adrienne Griffiths)
over the summer, but
shunned her sweet
innocence when back in
school around the gang
members he identified
with.
Both characters gave
strong performances,
and were complemented
greatly by all the other
singers and dancers who
crossed the stage. I don't
recall ever seeing anyone
do the "Hand Jive" as

crisply and uniformly as
this troupe pulled it off.
Sandy didn't under-
stand the change in
Danny and had to
toughen up to fit into
his world. She learned a
lot from tough girl Betty
Rizzo (Laura Wright,
who also gave a stellar
performance), and went
from wearing a long
ponytail, full poodle skirt
and saddle shoes to a
more sexy short hairdo,
tight pants and silver high
heels.
In the end, Sandy gave
up singing about being
the more mellow Sandra
Dee and took Danny by
the arm while singing
"You're the one that I
want." She got her man.
If you want to take a


trip down memory lane
to the exciting days at
Rydell High School with a
highly entertaining cast,
head to Broadway Palm
Theatre, 1380 Colonial
Blvd., Fort Myers.
Performances are
Wednesday through
Sunday evening and
some matinees. Tickets
cost between $27 and
$51, with group dis-
counts available for 20
or more people. There
is a summer special for
children 18 and under,
with tickets at $18 for the
show and scrumptious
buffet.

Hearing loss group wins national award


FROM HEARING
Loss ASSOCIATION

The Hearing Loss Asso-
ciation of Sarasota was
awarded the first national
Get in the Hearing Loop
award for its advocacy
work in getting the
revolutionary loop system
accepted by many local
venues in the past year.
The honor was pre-
sented at the Hearing
Loss Association of
America's annual conven-
tion in Providence, R.I.,


the last week of June.
Peter Fackler, HLAA's
president, and the board
of trustees praised the
Sarasota chapter for its
accomplishments, which
included the following in
the past 12 months:
44 major venues
added a loop system in a
community that previ-
ously had none
16 major area theaters
added the system, and
Sarasota was the first city
in the U.S. to have more
than four playhouses in


the loop
the first looped movie
house (Burns Court
Cinema) and first com-
mercial mobile loop (All
Ears Hearing Services) in
the south
the first two restau-
rants (Caragiulo's and
Owen's Fish Camp) in the
U.S. to employ the por-
table table loop system
created on-location
training and market sup-
port programs
named Best Cause
of 2012 by Sarasota


Magazine for its loop
efforts on behalf of
110,000 local people with
hearing loss
Ed Ogiba, chapter
president, named the
Best Visionary of 2012 by
Sarasota Magazine
Ogiba named as one
of 20 People to Watch in
2011 by BIZ (941) Maga-
zine for promoting this
new technology
"Our goal is to make
Venice, Sarasota and Bra-
denton among America's
first hearing-friendly


cities" said Ogiba. "This
remarkable system will
not only bring many of
the local 110,000 people
with hearing loss back to
theater and community
activities, it is also a
proven vehicle to build
businesses."
The Get in the Hearing
Loop advocacy effort is
a joint initiative of HLAA
and the American Acad-
emy of Audiology and
was a focal point for the
convention, attended by
1,000 hearing loss leaders


from across the U.S.
HLAS, a nonprofit
501(c)(3) organization, is
the local chapter of the
Hearing Loss Association of
America. HLAS helps
people with hearing loss
through education, men-
toring, advocacy and com-
munity support. Monthly
meetings feature experts
and are open to everyone
in the community seeking
ways to deal with hearing
loss. For more information,

Florida to offer world-class tech academy


State first to expand

program to middle schools


FROM FLORIDA STATE
DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

Through a new part-
nership, Florida is the
first state in the nation
to offer the Microsoft
IT Academy to middle
school students.
They will join high
school students and
teachers at 214 schools
throughout the state to
have access to the pro-
gram designed to provide
the real-world technol-
ogy skills necessary to
flourish in an increasingly


global economy.
Florida Education
Commissioner Gerard
Robinson announced
the pilot program that
includes industry-
focused technical
training and certification
on Microsoft products.
Included are business
productivity tools,
programming, web
development, workplace
collaboration software
and database develop-
ment technologies.
The Microsoft IT
Academy program is


being used in teaching
and learning in more
than 160 countries and
throughout schools
across the United
States. The program
can be integrated into
multiple content areas
in middle or high school
classrooms, making it an
exceptionally versatile
learning solution in a
wide variety of academic
settings.
"We know that the
jobs of tomorrow will
call for more advanced
technology skills, and I
am thrilled that we can
offer the Microsoft IT
Academy program to our
students and teachers,
Robinson said.


"Our partnership with
Microsoft will enable
Florida students to keep
pace with changing
technology and expand
their college and career
opportunities after
graduation."
The Microsoft IT
Academy program is a
college- and career-ready
program designed to
provide students with the
21st-century technology
skills necessary to earn
Microsoft certifications
and be competitive in
the globally evolving
workplace.
Students will have
access to hundreds of
the latest Microsoft
software and programs,


giving them an edge to
gaining job-ready skills
and industry credentials
while still in school.
The program also
provides educators with
professional develop-
ment opportunities to
help them stay abreast
of the latest Microsoft
technologies and easily
integrate these technolo-
gies into their existing
curriculum.
Educators can also
become a Microsoft
certified trainer, allowing
them to build on their
own career success.
"The Microsoft IT
Academy program makes
education more relevant
to students so they can


move from learning to
earning," said Sig Beh-
rens, general manager for
U.S. Education at Micro-
soft Corp. "Through this
partnership, Florida
public schools, teachers
and students can now
stay ahead of the curve
with changing technol-
ogy and curriculum
demands. The program
also gives students equal
access to the IT skills and
certifications they will
need as they prepare for
advanced studies and
technical career paths, all
of which provide a high

the recent news from

for the weakening muscles. The chiropractor

WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

4 7 AK1095 0 AJ9634J8

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

A If you have a way of showing a
red two-suiter, by all means bid it. If
not, making a takeout double with a
two-suiter can be a sure-fire way of
letting the opponents pre-empt you
out of your best spot. Overcall with
two hearts and see what develops.

Q 2 Neither vulnerable, as South,
you hold:

SKQJ95cQ8732 7 J 8

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

A You would like to tell partner
about both your major suits in one
fell swoop, but there's no way to do
that unless you play Michaels cue
bids. So overcall one spade and hope
you can get your hearts in at a low
level later.

Q 3 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

SA Q 87 2 7 0AJ 8 6 A1065

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

A You quite possibly have the best
hand at the table, but there is nothing
you can do at the moment. There is
an old truism that covers this
situation: When you are fixed, stay
fixed. Pass.

Q 4 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:


AAKJ10 5 OK9540 8 3A8

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

A Because of the great disparity
between the two suits, it is tempting
to overcall one spade, but that could
easily result in your losing a heart fit
and so landing in an inferior contract.
Double for takeout.

Q 5 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

SJ763 950 J10652494

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

A Usually, we would suggest you
respond to partner's takeout double
with a four-card major rather than a
five-card minor. Here, however, you
are so weak that you do not want to
give partner an ounce of
encouragement. Bid one diamond.

Q 6 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

SA 9 6 KQJOK 10 7 5 9 8 5 4 --

The bidding has proceeded:
WEST NORTH EAST SOUTH
14 Pass 34 32
36 Pass 46 Pass
66 Pass Pass ?
What action do you take?

A Double! In this auction, the
double has a special meaning. It
demands the lead of dummy's first-
bid suit, and your club ruff and spade
ace should guarantee the set.

July 4-10, 2012 E/N/C/V


Happy birthday

to us

ombs will be bursting in air up and down the Culture Coast
tonight.
The first picnics of the day may already have begun in
some homes.
Flags are being unfurled
Hot dogs and hamburgers soon will be charring. Pounds of
potato salad and beans will be consumed.
It is time to finalize plans for the evening in order to see most,if
not all, of the fireworks in the area. The wrench in this annual puzzle
is that starting time for tonight's show seems to be 9 p.m. most
places except for Siesta Key where the show begins at 9:15 p.m.
(As if an extra 15 minutes will help to get through the traffic heading
to "America's Number One Beach"') Some 20,000 to 30,000 are
expected there.
If you have reservations for Marie Selby Gardens, be there by
6 p.m. or so for the food and pre-fireworks fun, including music.
That is my favorite place from which to watch the Sarasota
display at City Island.
Venice fireworks are exploded from the South Jetty
which is off limits to all but the professionals in charge
of the display. Best viewing is from Nokomis and Venice
beaches north and south of the South Jetty and the
Venice Fishing Pier and Sharky's outside areas.
North Port's Freedom Festival begins at 6 p.m. at the high school
stadium on W. Price Boulevard with the show at 9 p.m.
Read about even more displays in today's Let's Go.
Wherever you find yourself as the sun sets and night skies
explode in color, have a safe and happy holiday.

Shamu is rockin


EIts G Ei. July 4-10, 2012


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
SeaWorld Orlando is cooler this summer.
With temperatures in the 90s even along
the Gulf Coast, getting soaked by Shamu
sounds like a really good way to chill.
Extended summer hours and new shows make
it even more tantalizing.
Shamu and friends are literally rocking the
night away in a new night-time show, Shamu
Rocks, set to rock and roll music. Also new this
season is Turtle Trek which opened just in time for
sea turtle season.
Now through Aug. 23, the park is open until
10 p.m. nightly so that guests have more time
to enjoy the new shows while also cooling off
with help from Shamu as he splashes for joy to
the rock beat. Even more fun at night are the
coasters which provide cool breezes as the cars
swoop and soar up, down and around the park
until the evening grand finale of fireworks and a
lighted fountain show set to music. Don't miss a
"flight" on Manta which is a very different coaster.
Inspired by a ray, it is especially magical and
thrilling at night.
Shamu and what could be its twin provide
twice as much splashing in the new show as


their fans rock to music from some of the legends
of rock and roll on stage behind Shamu's pool.
Turtle Trek is a 3D 360 film adventure that relates
the journey of a sea turtle in a 3D dome theater
venue that is billed as "the only attraction of its
kind in the world."The film features sea turtles
and manatees in up-close shots that make view-
ers feel as though they are almost in the water
with these sea creatures.
Clyde and Seamore star in Sea Lions Tonight,
offering more of their usual zaniness in a new
show that honors the park's new sea turtle at-
traction.
Reflections is the evening finale, featuring
fireworks, music from the park's many shows,
bright lights and dancing waters.
In addition to the regular, single-day, single-
park pass, SeaWorld has a menu of ticket options
and packages. The newest special deal is the
Summer Nights VIP tour which includes a six-
hour guided tour including front-of-the-line ride
access, reserved seating for the nighttime shows
and the chance to feed dolphins. Included is the
park's "all-you-care-to-eat All Day Dining Deal"
which is valued at $29.99.

Latest production of Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament is now open


BY STEPHANIE HAYES
TAMPA BAY TIMES
Inside the castle walls, it was time to strive for
perfection. Good can't just defeat evil without
some polishing.
The green knight, the bravest of the brave,
nailed his entrance. Then the king entered,
surrounded by squires marching with flags. They
turned, but didn't hit their marks with the neces-
sary verve one would expect of a squire.
"Stop,' said Leigh Cordner. "I'm going to cue
the squires. We'll just try the turn one more time.
Squires, I'll give you the cue."
They nailed it on the next try
'To honor!" the king chanted. "To glory! To
chivalry! To victory!"
The latest production of Medieval Times Din-
ner and Tournament is now open in Kissimmee.
The show remakes itself every four years, taking
feedback from the audience, improving music
and lighting. This latest show has a new story,


new costumes and new music produced in Kiev,
Ukraine, with big booming renaissance sounds
mixed with electric guitars and drums.
Essentially, though, the tournament remains
the same. It always does. There are impressive
performances from Andalusian, Quarter, Friesian
and Menorcan horses.There is a damsel in
distress. There are color-coded cheering sections
and lively jousting matches with splintering weap-
ons. There is a feast, and there are no utensils.
"You don't really change too much about what
brought you to the dance,' said Cordner, who as
Medieval Times creative director has overseen
eight rebirths of the show. "Medieval Times is
generational. If you loved it as a kid and now you
have a couple kids, you might bring them."
In modern tourist Orlando, you can choose
from a wealth of high-tech Walt Disney interests,
go bungee jumping along the highway, watch
Cirque du Soleil, meet a killer whale and step
into Harry Potter's fantasy world. Medieval Times,


Fourth of July show among

PBS's highest-rated programs


PROVIDED BY THE PHILHARMONIC CENTER
FOR THE ARTS
Jack Everly, principal pops conductor of the
Naples Philharmonic Orchestra, will conduct
the National Symphony Orchestra for the
2012 "A Capitol Fourth,' one of PBS's highest-rat-
ed programs, which airs live from the west lawn of
the United States Capitol.
"July 4th celebrations in Indiana always meant
gathering together for our family picnic, watch-
ing the fireworks and listening to the live music,"
Maestro Everly said. "That experience is much
the same today all around the country and our
coming together for the celebration in our nation's
capitol is uniquely'A Capitol Fourth.'"
This is the third year that Everly has conducted
"A Capitol Fourth." Everly took over the conducting
job two years ago from the late Erich Kunzel, who
directed the NSO in these concerts for 20 years.
Kunzel also served as principal pops conductor with
the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra for 11 years.
Everly became the Naples Philharmonic


Orchestra's principal pops conductor in 2009.
"A Capitol Fourth,' America's biggest birthday
party, will air at 8 p.m. tonight on PBS.
The program is broadcast before a concert audi-
ence of hundreds of thousands, and millions more
at home, as well as to our troops serving around the
world on the American Forces Network.

Gloria Musicae presents 'Sounds of Freedom'


PROVIDED BY GLORIA MUSICAE

Gloria Musicae, Sarasota's all-professional
chamber vocal ensemble under the
direction of Dr. Joseph Holt, will present
"Sounds of Freedom,' a spectacular
concert of patriotic favorites, at 4 p.m. today
at the The Historic Asolo Theater at the
Ringling Museum.
The program will be performed again at the
invitation of the Amalfi Coast Music and Arts
Festival in Italy.


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
World-famous jazz musician, concert
pianist and composer Dick Hyman will
perform Saturday at the Golden Apple
Dinner Theatre in Sarasota.
In a career spanning more than six decades
he has won countless awards, including an Oscar
for the music in "Moonstruck." He resides most of
the year in Venice with his wife Julia, a sculptor.
They moved to Venice more than 20 years ago
after discovering the city while at a jazz festival in
Sarasota.They live in the Paul Rudolph-designed
house which they purchased more than 20 years
ago for its contemporary style, and is the perfect
backdrop for their contemporary art collection. He
uses an adjacent house for his music: rehearsing
for concerts, adapting music for his many CDs
and composing scores for film. She uses the third
house of their compound for her sculpting. It is
across the street well out of earshot of her hus-
band so she can noisily chisel and hammer away
on her marble and granite works in process.
Hyman's 90-minute concert at the Golden
Apple will be "90 minutes of pure jazz."
Tickets are $25 per person for the concert
which will begin at 8 p.m. Chef Caldwell's light-
bite menu will be available for purchase beginning
at 6:30 p.m. when the doors open. The menu
includes starters such as coconut shrimp, Caesar
salad (plain or with chicken), pulled pork sand-
wiches, burgers and entrees that include chicken,
Tilapia and steak.
The rock and roll musical comedy, "All Shook
Up" opens July 12, with pay-what-you-can pre-
views July 10 and 11.The storyline was borrowed
from Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night" and combined
with music made famous by Elvis Presley.
The Golden Apple Dinner Theatre is at 25 N.
Pineapple Ave., opposite the library in downtown


"Sounds of Freedom" will highlight young
soloist Maria Wirries in her first performance
with Gloria Musicae and in her European
solo debut.
The program is a rousing all-American
mix of spirituals, Broadway classics, and will
feature the area premiere of "The Midnight
Ride of Paul Revere" by American composer
Rend Clausen.
Wirries and singers from Gloria Musicae
will perform the program again later in
July at the Amalfi Coast Music and Arts

Seamus McCarthy Band celebrates music diversity


BY CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Family traditions live on in the McCarthy
household, with each generation growing,
learning and appreciating the joy of sharing
the gift of music in their community.
Jimmy McCarthy is a well-known bass player
who has worked in the music field all his life. He
began his career in Cleveland, where he eventu-
ally was hired to tour the U.S. as a guitar player
with Sonny Geraci and the Outsiders. After years
of performing, Jimmy, his wife Jane, and son,
Seamus (rhymes with famous), settled in Engle-
wood, where Jimmy opened a music/recording
studio. There he met David Buescher, a fiddle


player in a Celtic group. That was five years ago,
and the two have been "jamming" ever since.
Seamus McCarthy grew up with music. "I never
asked Seamus to play," explained his dad. "He
just did."
"Seamus' fresh new voice is honestly unique/,
Jimmy said. Buescher was quick to add, "Seamus
demonstrates sincerity in his music. He is honest,
not a showboat."
Seamus grew up in Englewood, where he was
named captain of the Lemon Bay High School
football team and played guitar in a local band,
Steel Toe. At Heidelberg University in Ohio, he
majored in education, played football and tennis,
and joined several musical groups. Now a father


of two and a social worker with Head Start, Sea-
mus aspires to perform, record and write music.
A new CD is scheduled for release in December.
Seamus appreciates the "years of musical
miles" that back him. He also demonstrates
knowledge of rock 'n' roll, and the ability to trans-
form familiar songs into tunes that appeal to all
age groups. He has written several original songs
and is working on more.
The new Seamus McCarthy Band consisting
of Seamus playing guitar, and backup players Jimmy
on bass and Buescher on fiddle celebrates"live
music by live musicians'They offer performances
that are tailored to suit their audiences. Their Bose
sound system provides them with just the right


amount of volume, not overpowering.
It's not unusual for them to break into an oc-
casional Irish jig or reel during a show, resulting
in servers joining with patrons by clapping and
dancing.
The Seamus McCarthy Band performs weekly
at various Englewood and Venice locations, and
is available to play for private parties in the area.
Patrons who enjoy honest music (no drum machine
or electric guitars) just three-part harmony
with Seamus as lead singer will appreciate the
group's very eclectic song list, featuring O.A.R.,
Johnny Cash, Phish and lively original tunes.
To learn more about Seamus and hear his
music, go to www.erinrye.com./Seamus.html.

Country Hound Cafe


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The Englewood community is a very tight-
knit one. It has a population of a little
more than 16,000 people, and within
that group of people is another subset -
restaurateurs.
Many of the restaurant owners in Englewood
have worked at other restaurants, and it seems
the close circle of restaurant workers keeps going
around. Tomma Rolfe, an Englewood native, is
the owner of the Country Hound Cafe.
"Keith Farlow's dad owned this place, and we
bought it in 2006,' she said. "Bill (Rolfe's husband)
used to cook in the kitchen at Lock & Key when
the people who now own the Gulf View Grill used
to own it."
Farlow is the owner of Farlow's on the Water.
Her statement is a great example of how the
Englewood community's restaurant workers get
experience in and keep working in the area.


Rolfe's restaurant she now owns with her
husband is a comfortable, neighborhood place.
"It's home-cooked food, just like you would
cook at home," she said. "If our customers want
something that's not on the menu, we'll make it.
If they want something and we don't have it, we'll
have it for them the next day."
She says that because of the flexibility of their
menu and their desire to please, she has plenty
of customers that come to the Country Hound for
breakfast, lunch and dinner all in the same day.
One of their most popular menu items is the
baby back barbecue ribs. Rolfe said that they're
so good they won the Englewood barbecue
cookoff award the last two years they had it. Right
now, the restaurant has a great opportunity for
customers to try the ribs. During their Ribfest,
you can get a full rack of ribs for $11.99 and a
half rack for $7.99. They have several other ongoing
specials, as well.
"We have prime rib specials on Saturday night,"


Rolfe said. "And we have an all-you-can-eat fish
fry on Fridays. We have a line out the door for
that"'
Country Hound offers catering services, both
in the restaurant and offsite. Rolfe said that you
can order food from their existing menu or make
up one all your own.
"We do catering for private parties, cookouts
and house parties, whatever you need,' she said.
The decor around the restaurant is a testa-
ment to Rolfe's love of her community. She
has one wall covered with Old Englewood
pictures and mementoes. The other walls
are filled with framed pictures of family pets
that people have brought in and Rolfe has hung.


But house pets are not the only animals on the
walls.
"Kathy Genth has a horse farm and has a
whole corner of her pictures," Rolfe said. Then
we've got a fisherman and he has all of his fish-
ing pictures and trophies up there."

Play the rolling of "The Cat"


Come by Bobcat Trail Golf Course in North Port and you'll understand why they say, "It's a BEAUTIFUL day at Bobcat Trail."
The 6,748-yard, par 71 course was originally designed by architect Lee Singletary and former PGA champion Bob Tway. It's one of the few courses in Sarasota County to
have been given a 4.5 star rating by Golf Digest. The facility has been fully renovated, from the greens and bunkers to the enlarged clubhouse. Even the golf cars were updated
and outfitted with GPS. So while your ball may get lost, you'll always know where you are at Bobcat Trail.
"Our course layout is one of the best you'll find," said Bruce Harris, General Manager and one of the golf pros at Bobcat Trail. "It has very large, undulating greens with
hybrid Bermuda grass and plenty of wildlife." On any given day, while playing "The Cat," golfers might be treated to the sight of osprey, eagles, otters, bobcats, all kinds of
bird life as well as alligators sunning themselves on the banks near the water spots, said Harris.
Bobcat Trail is a semi-private club, which means it has both memberships and open tee times available to the public. Many of its 220 members live in the beautiful, gated
Bobcat Trail community that surrounds the course.
PGA instructors are happy to give lessons to beginners who want to start the game or more advanced players who want to improve a part of their game.
The club actively welcomes younger players, too. Their Junior Golf program, for kids aged six and up, starts June 7 and goes for eight weeks, on Thursdays. Several pro
instructors will help the Juniors learn the game.
Before or after play, The Grill Room has snacks, sandwiches, soups and salads. For a quick bite, try spicy wings, Famous Nachos or fried green beans. For lunch, the soup and
sandwich special and the chopped salad you choose your ingredients and have it chopped for you -- are hugely popular.
Bobcat Trail offers special pricing depending on the time of day. Morning play is $45, 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. is $35, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. is $27 and after 4 p.m. rates drop to $20.
Prices are reviewed monthly and are subject to change.
Tee times can be made up to seven days in advance, and can be booked 24 hours a day at http://www.bobcattrailgc.com. For questions, to register for the Junior Golf summer
program or for other information, see the website or call 941-429-0500. Bobcat Trail is located at 1350 Bobcat Trail in North Port.

Peace River Riders plan unique bicycle ride


BY GORDON BOWER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Southwest Florida bicycling enthusi-
asts are well aware Punta Gorda has
become a cycling destination. The proof
is in the numbers; 438 riders showed up for
TEAM Punta Gorda's Pedal and Play in Para-
dise ride in March.
Not as well known is a unique summer ride
organized by members of the Peace River Rid-
ers, a local bicycling club whose membership has
soared as the city has transformed itself into a
Bicycle Friendly City.
This year's Wheels and Wings, scheduled for
8 a.m. Saturday out of the Beef'O' Brady's at
1105 Taylor Road, is the third, and word of the
fun to be had on the ride is spreading.
Ride Director Court Nederveld said, "We had
80 riders for the first one and 100 last year. We're
expecting 150 riders for WW III, as it's affection-
ately referred to, and maybe a smidge more.
We're limited by the capacity of the restaurant.
Since all the riders won't be there at the same
time, we can go a little over."
The reason Beef 'O' Brady's capacity is
important riders' $25 registration fee includes a
dozen wings, two adult beverages or softer drinks
of choice and stage 7 of the Tour de France on
the restaurant's flat screens, the perfect end to a
ride. Also included are a T-shirt and a chance to
participate in a 50/50 drawing.
The bicycling is still the major drawing card for
cyclists. Wheels and Wings offers distances for

and Wings bicycle ride.


all skill levels, as well as a couple of unique twists
not normally found in other rides.
Newer cyclists will enjoy the 15-mile Mystery
Ride, which will have participants riding to the air-
port, out to Cleveland Drive east of town and then
back on Riverside Drive and the Harborwalk bike
trail, all the while using clues to solve mysteries
at various sites.
Mystery Ride organizer Sheryl Martin said,
'It's going to be a blast... We'll take all the papers
with the correct answers and draw the winner of
the prize out of a hat."
A 32- and 50-mile ride organized by Ray


Heisey is for more skilled riders.The 32-miler
also will head out to the Cleveland area and back
but moves on to Ponce Park before returning to
Beef 'O'Brady's.
The 50-miler follows a similar route but adds
a trip to the wide-open spaces of Washington
Loop Road. All rides will have plenty of sag
stops and be well marked and safe, according to
Heisey.
More advanced cyclists also can participate
in the Gentleman's Race, a measured 10-mile
stretch at the beginning of the 50-mile ride. It's
a mass-start race and very competitive, with the

winner receiving a Tour de France-style yellow
winner's jersey.
Even more unusual is an opportunity to get a
speeding warning for a rider who can crack 25
miles per hour.
Nederveld said, "It's called the speed trap, and
it will be on a side street close to Beef 'O'Brady's.
There will be a radar flashing riders' speeds. Do
at least 26 miles an hour and receive a written
warning suitable for framing from a Punta Gorda
police officer after the race."
Information on Wheels and Wings and
registration forms can be found at
www.peaceriverridersbicycleclub.com.
The closing date for pre-registration is
Thursday; same day registration starts at
7:30 a.m. and is $30. Beef 'O' Brady's also will
open its bathrooms to riders at 7:30 a.m.


Discover the water on the water A
BY~~~m DEBE4LSSE


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
If you want to truly understand the beauty of
this coastal area we live in, there is no better
place to be than on the water.
Out on City Island, Sarasota Bay Explorers
has several different options for tours, each with
unique ways you can discover Sarasota and its
surrounding waters.
Working in conjunction with Mote Marine
Aquarium, they offer an exciting, hands-on expe-
rience for people of all ages.
"The Sea Life Encounter is our most popular
and our shortest trip,' said Tina Matthews, manager.
"The timing seems to work out well, especially with
younger children"'This particular cruise lasts for an
hour and forty-five minutes, departing daily from the
dock at 11 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 4 p.m.
Each tour boat leaves with a marine biologist
onboard to help identify the sea creatures that
are seen.
"We put a net in the water and trawl," Matthews


said. "When we pull the net up, it's like Christmas
morning you never know what you're going to
get in your stocking."
As part of the cruise, the boat makes a short
stop on Edwards Island, where the passengers
and crew get off the boat and explore on foot.
The Nature Safari is the newest tour at
Sarasota Bay Explorers, and focuses on learning
about the different eco-systems in the bay. "We
take the boat out to Lido Key and dip nets as we
go through the grasses with a marine biologist,"
Matthews said."I like to think of the nature safari
as an extension to the Sea Life Encounter."
This particular tour is a great way to learn
about the many varieties of sea life that live in
the local waters. The grass flats and sandbars
can contain live shells, sea stars, many varieties
of fish, crabs, sand dollars and even sea horses.
Both the nature safari and the kayak tour operate
on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and the times
vary because the tours are tide-dependent.
The kayak tour is guided and takes about three


hours. Matthews said that this excursion winds its
way through the mangrove forest tunnels on Lido
Key. It's a perfect way to see wildlife up close and
personal, since mangroves are a very popular
nesting place with pelicans and sea life abounds
in those backwaters.
If you want to try something a little more
customized, the Miss Explorer is a private charter
boat with a rental rate that includes a captain who
will take you almost anywhere you want to go. "It's
catered to what you want to do,' Matthews said.'We
can go shelling and looking for sharks' teeth, or you
can go somewhere for a picnic or to a waterfront
restaurant.'They can also take you snorkeling.
Sarasota Bay Explorers also runs the LaBarge
Tropical Cruises out of the Marina Jack Plaza.
The LaBarge boat offers a variety of tours, from
the relaxing sunset cruise to the exciting dolphin,
manatee and wildlife watch cruise and the
informative sightseeing/nature cruise. We have a
sightseeing tour every day but Monday," Matthews
said. We talk about and see Sarasota history,


Tina Matthews is the manager of Sarasota Bay
Explorers, which runs tours and cruises from
Mote Marine Aquarium and Marina Jack.

folklore and houses.' All of the trips on LaBarge
last for about two hours.
Reservations are required for all Sarasota
Bay Explorers cruises except for the Sea Life
Encounter, but they are recommended for that
one as well.
For information about the dates and times of any of
their cruises, visit the website at
www.SarasotaBayExplorers.com or call 941-3884200.

Opening lead: King of

This deal is from the Australian
National Championships some years
ago. Study the bidding and play and
decide who, if anyone, erred.
North-South were using a 15-17
point range for opening one no trump
with transfers at the two- and four-
level. Hence North's four-heart bid
showed a good six-card spade suit. In
the light of the opening bid range
North's jump to game was a trifle
ambitious, but cannot be faulted. The
outcome would depend more on the
location of South's high cards than
whether it was a maximum or


minimum opening bid, and that was
impossible to determine with any
degree of accuracy.
Declarer ducked the opening lead
and won the continuation of the
queen with the ace. Next came a
trump to the king, revealing the bad
news that there was a trump loser. A
heart from dummy fetched the ace
from East, who switched to the king
of diamonds. Declarer took the ace
and led the queen of hearts for the
ruffing finesse. West withheld the
king and a diamond was ditched from
the table. Declarer continued with the
jack of hearts, pinning the ten as West
covered and dummy trumped.
Declarer returned to hand with a club
ruff, cashed the ace of spades and
continued with the nine of hearts,
discarding the table's remaining
diamond. Declarer lost only one trick
each in trumps, hearts and clubs -
making four-odd.
While West might have shifted to a
diamond at trick two, that defense is
not indicated. East, however,
blundered badly by rising with the
ace of hearts when that suit was led
from table a play that could not
gain. Had East played low instead,
allowing West to win with the king,
the contract cannot be made. Try it!

An approach to the treatment

of irritable bowel syndrome


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I am a relatively healthy
81-year-old man who has
recently been diagnosed
with irritable bowel
syndrome. I find it strange
that a sudden change in
my bowel habits occurred
four months ago and still
continues much of the
time. My stools are loose
and covered with mucus. I
have to take frequent visits
to the bathroom. I feel
bloated.
Is it unusual for some-
one of my age to have such
a sudden occurrence of
IBS? S.E
ANSWER: The young,
the old and the in-
betweens can develop
irritable bowel syndrome.
The majority of patients
fall between the ages of 30
and 50, and women pa-
tients outnumber men by
a factor of two to one. You
are not the usual candidate
for IBS.
Experts have devised
criteria to permit a firm
diagnosis of this illness.
One criterion is recur-
rent abdominal pain or
discomfort for at least
three days a month for the
past three months. The
second is a change in stool
frequency, either more
than three movements a
day or fewer than three
movements a week. The
third criterion is improve-
ment in symptoms after a
bowel movement. And the
fourth is a change in the
appearance of the stool,
either liquid or very soft, or
rock-hard. So people with
IBS have either diarrhea or
constipation.
Bloating is another com-
mon sign. It lessens if you
avoid gas-producing foods
like beans, onions, celery,
carrots, raisins, bananas,
prunes, Brussels sprouts,
pretzels and bagels. Cut
back on fiber intake to 12
grams a day, less than half
the suggested dose.
As a trial, stop all dairy
products for a week. Older
people often lack the
enzyme that digests milk
sugar.
It's always good to
consider other ailments
that can be mistaken for
IBS. Celiac disease is an
example. It's an inability to
digest wheat, barley and
rye. Symptoms that raise
a red flag indicating that
more serious maladies
have to be considered are
rectal bleeding, nighttime
abdominal pain, increas-
ing severity of abdominal
pain and weight loss.
These are not symptoms of
celiac disease.
Are you taking any
medicines for IBS?

gastric secretions and
slows the passage of
food through the tract.
Dicyclomine does the
same. Loperamide
(Imodium) hardens soft
and semiliquid stools.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
My husband is 63 and in
excellent health. For nearly
a year, we have noticed
blood in his semen. It's not
coming from me but from
him. The doctor said this
is nothing to worry about.
We then saw a urologist,
and the prostate exam
was normal. The PSA
also was normal. Should
we see a urologist at the
nearby university's medical
school? S.M.
ANSWER: The official
name for your husband's
condition is hematosper-
mia. It freaks everyone out,
the man and his partner.
It's almost always a benign
condition.
If the blood doesn't stop,
doctors have to look for
signs of infection, bladder
cancer, prostate cancer and
prostate enlargement. If
your husband takes either
daily aspirin or a blood
thinner like Coumadin,
that could explain it. Your
husband has been through
the mill. If he and you are
still worried, then a trip to
the medical school's urolo-
gist ought to give you peace
of mind.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
Will you direct me to a
place where I can get a
white noise machine? The
ringing in my ear is so bad
I can't sleep. M.M.
ANSWER: Before resort-
ing to white noise, turn
your bedside radio to a
station that plays soothing
music with few interrup-
tions. If that fails, turn the
dial to a position where
only static is heard. That
might end the ear noise.
White noise is the sound
of wind gently blowing,
trees rustling or water lap-
ping at the shore. It cancels
out the inner-ear ring-
ing of tinnitus for some
patients. One distributor
of white noise machines is
SleepWell Baby Company,
reachable at 866-694-1375.
If you have a computer
or a friend with one, you'll
find many white noise ma-
chines with their pictures
by using "white noise" as a
search phrase.

How do you get citrus zest ?


Dear Heloise: Maybe I'm
the only cook who doesn't
know the answer to this
question, but I doubt it. I
hope you will depart from
your usual very helpful
hints to give me some
much-needed information.
Recipes frequently list citrus
zest, usually lemon or or-
ange. I feel sure that there is
some kind of special tool for
obtaining this ingredient. A
normal grater does not work
well at all. Where would one
go, and what exactly would
one ask for? Jimmie S.,
Garland, Texas
Jimmie, you are lucky,
because there is a tool that
is available to zest citrus
fruits called a zester/peeler.
You should be able to find
one at any store where
kitchen utensils are found.
You also can find them on-
line. Good luck. Heloise

Slow-cooker safety
Dear Heloise: Many
times slow cookers go
unused because of the
safety issue of not being
there in case, when in
use, something should
boil over or worse. We
place the slow cooker on
the stove when cooking
all day so that should
anything go wrong, it will
simply spill over onto the
stovetop, which is able
to handle it. -Will J.,
Mission Viejo, Calif.

Easy-clean wok
Dear Heloise: I enjoy
cooking with my electric
wok. The meals are quick
and usually healthier for

Hints from Heloise

you (depending on what
you are cooking). The
cleaning wasn't always
easy, because I can't
submerge the wok in water
to clean it. So, after I am
done cooking and turn off
the wok, I get a large cup
of water and pour it into
the wok. By the time I get
ready to do the dishes,
the wok is a snap to clean.
Clean and easy in no time!
- Karen A., via email

Oatmeal options
Dear Heloise: For people
who are not fond of oatmeal
or those who want a change,
try using orange, pineapple,
apple or other real fruit
juice in place of the water
when cooking. By doing so,
you usually eliminate salt,
water and sweetener. And
definitely use cinnamon.
I often add chopped nuts
and/or whole fruit when
cooking the cereal. Breakfast
can be a real treat, and good
for you. Elizabeth M.,
Billings, Mont.
Oatmeal is a favorite of
mine! Sometimes I "zing"
it up by adding cinnamon
candy and a dash of
nutmeg. Even cold, it's a
tasty treat. Heloise

Alcoholic feels he doesn't

deserve the love of his life


DEAR ABBY: I am a
39-year-old gay man in
a three-year relationship
with a wonderful man.
We had both come out
of very long and abusive
relationships when we
met. He works hard, and
I stay home and take care
of the house, the animals
and the yard. There is
no kind of abuse in our
relationship.
The problem is that
I am an alcoholic. He
keeps telling me he can
handle it as long as there
is no abuse. I feel I'm tak-
ing advantage of him and
that he deserves better
than this, and I have told
him so.
I have been in rehab
several times and tried
AA. Nothing worked. I al-
ways go back to drinking.
Where do I go from here?
I don't want to lose the
love of my life, but it's kill-
ing me inside that he has
to put up with my drink-
ing problem. NEEDS
HELP IN FLORIDA
DEAR NEEDS HELP:
There is abuse going on
in your relationship -
substance abuse. Until
you finally decide that
there is something more
important than a drink,
you will remain stuck
in your addiction. And
as long as your partner
continues to accept and
"handle it," he will be
your enabler. Where you
go from here is up to you,
but getting counseling for
your low self-esteem and
going back to AA would
be giant steps in the right
direction.
DEAR ABBY: It seems
that every other letter you
print concerns a demand-
ing relative (a parent,
in-law, sibling, etc.). The
writer always wants to
know how to avoid unrea-
sonable demands without
causing "unpleasantness."
May I say a word to these
folks?
Be honest and admit
that the relationship
is already unpleasant.
Demanding people are
impossible to please. They
know their control over
you depends on temper
tantrums and/or fits of
sulking and tears. They'll
pitch these fits regularly
no matter how hard you


Dear Abby

try to please them.
When faced with an
unreasonable demand,
just say "no." Don't waste
time giving reasons or try-
ing to work out a compro-
mise. You already know it
won't do any good. Then
hunker down and wait for
the explosion, keeping in
mind that the longer you
have been a doormat, the
more violent and bitter
the reaction will be.
Above all, do not
be drawn into a fight!
Controlling people love to
fight, and they are good
at it. Your weapon should
be polite withdrawal.
Refuse meetings. Screen
your calls. Ignore letters
and emails unless they
contain an apology and
indicate a sincere desire
for change. It may shock
your domineering rela-
tives into more reason-
able behavior.
If not, you haven't lost
a thing. You may even
find that your life is less
complicated without
them. Draw the line and
let your family know that
future relationships will
be based on love and re-
spect, or there will be no
future relations. You won't
regret it. BEEN THERE,
DONE THAT, KNOXVILLE,
TENN.
DEAR BEEN THERE:
People who have spent a
lifetime trying to please
others may find your
recommendations dif-
ficult to put into practice.
Habits can become so
entrenched that they are
hard to break without
coaching and positive
reinforcement. That is
why I advise those who
feel constantly put upon
to consider taking classes
in assertiveness training.
CONFIDENTIAL TO MY
READERS: Have a happy,
healthy and safe Fourth of
July, everyone!


"Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto
my path." Psalms 119:105.
Living life without the benefit of the Word of God
is like trying to see in the dark. Read the Bible and let
God lead you.
