Osprey-Nokomis chamber formed


By ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Last week at Bentley's Boutique
Hotel in Osprey, 60 people met
and organized the Osprey-Noko-
mis Chamber of Commerce.
Among the attendees was Norma
Martin, a resident and business
owner in the area for 66 years and a
member of the first Osprey Cham-
ber of Commerce. She presented
the new chamber's board members
with three original copies of the
early Osprey chamber's magazine
published in the 1970s.
Rod Thomas, co-owner of
Bentley's, is a director and the vice
president of the new chamber.
"A few weeks ago two Osprey
businessmen contacted me with
the idea of forming a new cham-
ber to help Osprey and Nokomis


business groups achieve a greater
identity and position within the
Sarasota andVenice area," he said.
An Osprey chamber existed in
the 1960s but was disbanded in
1974 following the widening of
U.S. 41, the sale of park land to the
Oaks' developers and the demise
of the local school, all leading to
the breakdown of its small busi-
ness community, said Thomas.
Merchants and businesses in the
area joined the Venice Area Cham-
ber of Commerce or Sarasota
Chamber of Commerce.
Founded in 1925, the Venice
chamber represents businesses
from Osprey to South Venice
and is recognized as the official
visitors center in the area, accord-
ing to John Ryan, president and
CEO. It also has a Better Business
Department to assist consumers


by providing quality referrals and
offering assistance for those who
have concerns regarding a busi-
ness transaction.
Still, Osprey and Nokomis are
"out on a limb" a nonentity
surrounded by the Sarasota,
Venice and Siesta Key chambers,
Thomas said. Already more than
40 attendees have signed up as
founding members, including
Armel Jewelers, Butchers Gourmet
and Bentley's.
"I will still retain my member-
ship in the Venice Area Chamber
of Commerce," said Thomas.
"Our members are mostly small
businesses who cannot afford to
belong to the larger organizations,
but they want to network and
promote their local businesses."

BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

On a clear, sunny morning
almost 11 years ago, foreign
terrorists made the first
attacks on the mainland of this
country.
In a heavy downpour in
Venice's Patriots Park Tuesday,
a group of people gathered to
see the ground broken for a
memorial to the victims of the
Sept. 11 attacks.


Gene Sweeney, whose Salt of
the Earth U.S.A. is the driving
force behind the memorial,
welcomed about 60 attendees,
including relatives of victims;
retired service members; first
responders; American Legion
members; representatives of
Sarasota County and the city of
Venice; contractors; and con-
tributors. Twenty-eight-year
retired U.S. Air Force Master
Sgt. Barbara Miller-Vaughan
gave the invocation.


As the rain continued, Dr.
Rich Swier, a retired U.S. Army
lieutenant colonel, spoke.
"I lived in Hawaii for five
years, my last duty assignment,"
he said. "Whenever you have
a special event a wedding,

Dock ordinance OK'd by plan board


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

The city ofVenice took
another important step forward
this week in assuming dock
permitting authority from Sara-
sota County when the Venice
Planning Commission adopted
an updated draft ordinance on
Tuesday.
The ordinance, allowing the
city to regulate structures over


water, is modeled after Sarasota
County's. City council directed
staff to develop the ordinance,
in part to break a stalemate over
the Marker IV docks, even going
so far as to threaten to job out
drafting the ordinance if staff
didn't make it a high priority.
County officials and the
Marker IV property owner have
been locked in a dispute since
2007, when the dock was built.
The county won't allow the


dock to open because it's 15
feet longer than allowed under
the permit. The owner dug in
his heels, threatening to sue the
county and refusing to scale
back the docks.
Some residents of Harbor
Lights, unhappy with the
adjacent dock's presence, testi-
fied against adopting the new
ordinance.

Thaxton leads



Dent in funding


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER

Jon Thaxton, a late entry into
the Sarasota County supervisor
of elections race, has a lead of
more than $65,600 over incum-
bent Kathy Dent in campaign
contributions in the latest
reporting period, April 1 through
Friday.
The difference is more than
four times what Dent has raised
so far, campaign finance reports
show. The county's supervisor
of elections for more than a
decade, Dent also took out a
personal loan of more than
$16,000 last month to help
finance her campaign.
Thaxton had been raising
campaign funds in his effort to
seek a fourth term on the county
commission. However, a Florida
Supreme Court ruling on term
limits in May prevents him from
running for re-election for his
District 5 seat.
Thaxton has a total of $81,415
in cash and check contributions.


THAXTON


DENT


Some $11,300 of that came after
he switched races in June. As
mandated by state law, he sent
out a form to donors asking if
they wanted their contribu-
tions returned. Some took their
money back, but most allowed
their funds to be repurposed
into Thaxton's supervisor of elec-
tions campaign. His campaign
coffers include a loan of $250
and $111 in in-kind contribu-
tions, for a total of $81,776.
Prior to the Supreme Court
decision, when it appeared she
would have no opposition, Dent
had raised only $1,050 in cash
and checks, $500 in loans and
$108.10 in in-kind donations,

Get school shots updated now


By DIANNE SHIPLEY
SARASOTA COUNTY
HEALTH DEPARTMENT

With local schools scheduled
to resume Aug. 20, Sarasota
County public health and school
officials want to remind parents
to get their child's immuniza-
tions updated now. Parents of
children entering schools in the
county for the first time must
provide the school office with a
completed Florida Certification
of Immunization (DH 680).
Available through your
healthcare provider or at health
department locations in North
Port and Sarasota, this is the of-
ficial record showing that your
school-age children have had
all the immunizations needed
for their grade level.
By the time a child starts
school, he should have already
had a number of required

Health Department


IMMUNIZATION
LOCATIONS
The Sarasota County Health Depart-
ment, through the federally funded
Vaccines for Children program, offers
immunizations to eligible children at
no cost. No appointment is needed.
A parent or legal guardian must be
present, and must bring prior shot
records. Immunizations for eligible

immunizations. However, proof
of updates, boosters and series
completion is required to enter
county schools for the first time
and to advance to some grade
levels.
Florida immunization require-
ments for school attendance for
the 2012-13 school year are DTP
(diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis),
polio, MMR (measles, mumps,
rubella), varicella, hepatitis B
and Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria,
pertussis).
"Let's all have a great start to
the school year. Compare your
child's immunization record with
the immunization requirements
and also remember to get the in-
fluenza vaccine at the beginning
of flu season," county Health
Department School Health
Supervisor Linda Glover said.
The registrar must be at the
school to process the DH 680
forms. While some school staff
work year-round, the majority of
Sarasota County School District
school registrars will return
to work on Thursday, July 26.
According to school
officials, schools will not be open


on Friday, July 27; however, the
normal schedule will resume on
Monday, July 30.
"Bring your student's DH
680 form to the school as soon
as you can so your child's first
day of school will be a positive
experience," Glover said.
Students who do not have the
required immunizations will be
sent home from public schools
on the first day. In addition, they
will not be able to ride the bus
or participate in sports, band or
other extracurricular activities
until the school has the DH 680
form showing that they received
the required immunizations.
For more information, contact
your health care provider or
the Sarasota County Health
Department's Office of School
Health at 941-927-9000, ext.

Board already setting precedent for subcontractors


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

The Venice Construc-
tion Board of Adjust-
ments and Appeals
brought two licensed
contractors before it this
week a plumber for
not immediately pulling
permits and a shutter
company for doing
electrical work it isn't
licensed to do.
It's the first time the
reconstituted board ad-
dressed work by licensed
contractors. In previous
meetings it focused on
unlicensed contractors.
Both contractors ad-
mitted they were at fault,
apologized and promised
it wouldn't happen again.
In doing so, they
pointed out inconsisten-
cies with permit rules
in surrounding counties
and poorly worded or


vague codes and statutes
that muddy the issue.
On July 12, the con-
struction board found
Spanninger Plumbing
had violated state and
city statutes by not
pulling a permit prior
to repairing a city water
line, but the company
was found not guilty
of incompetency or
misconduct.
There was some
question as to whether
making a repair required
a permit at all.
"I honest to goodness
did not know," Stephen
Spanninger said.
After a close reading
of the city ordinance,
which largely mirrors the
Sarasota County ordi-
nance, even Spanninger
agreed the city code
states this type of repair
requires a permit.
But that's not the case


in Sarasota, Charlotte or
Lee counties, Spanninger
said. He's been making
the same kind of water-
line repairs for decades,
as have many other
reputable companies, he
said.
A construction board
member agreed the same
activity does not require a
Sarasota County permit.
He said the repair
started as a minor
plumbing issue, but he
later realized the prob-
lem was a crumbling city
waterline, which required
digging up concrete.
In other words, the job
turned into a bigger one
than anticipated, a com-
mon occurrence, he said.
Spanninger obtained
a permit the next day,
after receiving a notice of
possible violation from
the city. He was required
to pay double for pulling


the permit after the fact.
The violation raised
another issue: what to do
regarding late night or
emergency repairs.
Building Director
Vince LaPorta said the
contractor should have
pulled the permit first
thing the next day. He
left a little more wiggle
room, however, saying he
was less concerned about
weekends and might have
been more lenient had
the contractor called in or
emailed the city saying he
intended to pull a permit
the next day.
These contractors
didn't, LaPorta said.
"(Just remember) if
you call in and say you
are going to pull a permit
the next day and show up
three days later, that is a
violation," LaPorta said.
One construc-
tion board member


encouraged the building
department to make a
better effort at having a
"meeting of the minds"
with contractors about a
potential violation before
it gets to the board level.
Spanninger was also
found guilty of not
pulling a permit for
another job around the
same time. A stop-work
order was issued in that
instance. The company
voluntarily stopped the
project (after disclosing
he made another emer-
gency repair since there
was a tenant who needed
running water still resid-
ing in the building that
evening) pending the
outcome of this meeting.
He wasn't charged with a
violation for making the
emergency repair.
Jansen Shutters &
Specialties received the
same treatment.


Travis Jansen admitted
his workers ran wire from
electric shutters to the
power box, then made
the connection although
his company isn't
licensed to do electrical
work. He said he was
trying to please a cus-
tomer who wanted to see
it work.
"It was a mistake," he
said.
A second similar case
persuaded the board to
find Jansen guilty of violat-
ing Florida statutes and
city ofVenice code by prac-
ticing beyond the scope of
his company's contractor
certifications. He, too, was
found innocent of incom-
petence or misconduct,
but not before the board
warned him he isn't even
supposed to be running
wire in the house.

Sarasota County's McCarthy to retire


By CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

John McCarthy, who has
headed Sarasota County's
team regarding the future
of Warm Mineral Springs
Day Spa, is retiring Friday.
McCarthy, 50, a
31-year county em-
ployee, currently serves
as interim director of
community information


and education/parks
and natural resources.
His retirement was made
public in a memo to
commissioners from
County Administrator
Randall Reid.
McCarthy's retirement
starts four days after
Monday's joint meeting
of county and North
Port commissioners.
The morning session


of the all-day meet-
ing focused on future
plans for Warm Mineral
Springs, where many
believe the mineral-
rich, 87-degree waters
have healing properties.
McCarthy and Assistant
City Manager Danny
Schult head the county
and city teams charged
with drafting a plan
for the future of the


81-acre property that
was purchased jointly
by the two governments
for $5.5 million in
December 2010.
"It's a team approach
now," McCarthy said
about the project. "There
are many members of a
team working together
who can carry this project
forward."
McCarthy said he


was involved with the
December 2010 land
acquisition, which he
called a "critical piece" of
the project, and he "en-
joyed being part" of the
community workshops
that were used to solicit
thoughts of citizens.
"An event will be
organized after a planned
travel opportunity to
recognize his extensive


service," Reid said in the
memo. "We wish him
well and expect to see
him active in the life of
our community for many
years."
In response, County
Commissioner Jon
Thaxton replied, "This
hurts like reading an
obituary."

County's

'11 sports

tourism

take: $117M

By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER
Sports tourism led to
a $117 million economic
impact for fiscal year 2011,
according to data from the
Convention and Visitors
Bureau presented at a joint
meeting of the Sarasota
County and North Port city
commissioners Monday.
"Sports-related tourism
has become a key compo-
nent in the growth of our
region's hospitality indus-
try," said Sarasota County
Parks and Recreation
General Manager Carolyn
Brown in a presentation
to the joint commissions.
Sarasota County sports
tourists spent more than
$61.8 million in the last year.
In addition to the Baltimore
Orioles, who averaged more
than 7,000 fans per game in
their 15-game spring train-
ing schedule at Ed Smith
Stadium in Sarasota, the
county hosts a wide variety
of athletic tournaments
every year. Rowing events
at Nathan Benderson Park
in Sarasota have attracted
crowds from all over the
southeast, and recently the
county received news that it
will host the Breast Cancer
Dragon Boat Festival in
October 2014. That event is
estimated to bring at least
100 rowing teams from all
over the world, Brown said.
The area boasts several
youth baseball and soccer
tournaments, BMX bike
competitions and beach
volleyball tournaments.
The Sarasota half-mara-
thon each spring brings in
runners from all over the
country and is held the
same weekend as three
other major youth sporting
tournaments making
hotel space in the county
scarce.
Brown pointed out that
South County played a part
in the area's success over
the last year. Last October,
the city of North Port and
several groups combined to
hold the inaugural Paddle-
palooza, an event that drew
about 1,500 people to Dal-
las White Park. That event
will return and is scheduled
for Oct. 8. Last February,
32 teams took part in the
two-day Region's Cup Girls'
11-13 soccer tournament at
Narramore Sports Complex
in North Port.
This fall the area will
sponsor the Rev3 Triathlon,
with a 1.2-mile swim inVen-
ice, a 56-mile bicycle ride
that will take riders through
North Port and a 13.1-mile
run inVenice. Sarasota
County is providing $20,000
in funding for the event,
which is expected to attract
about 1,000 participants
and bring an estimated
$1 million into the local
economy.

Habitat needs volunteers for home rehabs


By STEVEN J. SMITH
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Michael Sollitto, construc-
tion manager for Habitat for
Humanity South Sarasota
County, is looking for help to
restore seven homes in North
Port that will go to deserving
families.
"We've been working down
in North Port for the past
couple of years, purchasing
foreclosed homes through the
Neighborhood Stabilization
Program, which is under
the auspices of the Office of
Community Development in


Sarasota," Sollitto said. "We've
done about 23 homes already
in North Port over the last
couple of years, and we could
use some local volunteers to
help us rehab seven more."
Sollitto said the houses
are usually bought up in
the $80,000-$100,000 range
through the program, then
$20,000-$30,000 is spent to get
them refurbished and sold to
qualifying homeowners in need
of affordable housing. These
homeowners purchase the
houses through sweat equity,
a reasonable down payment
based on their income level


and a zero-interest mortgage.
"Some of the homes require
quite a bit of work," Sollitto
said. "One we're working
on now needed a complete
rehab roof, kitchen, flooring,
insulation, windows. We use
volunteers so we don't have to
pay for labor. We do 85 percent
of the work, and the rest is
done with a paid contractor."
Sollitto said the NSP targets
specific areas where neighbor-
hood rehabilitation is necessary.
"The program looks for
houses that have just gone flat
for so many years now," he said.
Sollitto said it is important


to bring in volunteers from
members of the surrounding
community since, through the
program, they are benefiting by
seeing an increase in their own
property values.
"We're working in their
community very hard to keep it
desirable," he said. "If you look
at the 23 houses we've done
already, which average about
$100,000 a house, that's about
$2.5 million in transactions
in those neighborhoods over
the last couple of years. This
gets people back into homes,
living in neighborhoods, paying
taxes, paying insurance and


working in the North Port
community."
Sollitto said both skilled
and unskilled volunteers are
welcome to take part in such
activities as roofing, electrical
work, plumbing, painting,
trim work, door and window
replacement, cabinetry work
and more.

volunteering for rehabilitating
North Port homes through

New place for a late-night bite


If you wake up and feel
hungry in the middle of
the night, think Night
Owls Eatery, 2045 South
Tamiami Trail, in South
Venice.
To feed the hungry
cravings of diners who
want more than fast
food, Larry and Betty
Eppler have opened this
primarily take-out and
delivery restaurant, with
12 seats inside and four
outside tables.
"Everything is fresh
supplied by local farms
for our 11 unique,
ginormous owl-named
sandwiches," said Larry
Eppler.
On the menu are
cheesesteaks, wings,
fish bites, stuffed jalap-
enos, cheese ravioli and


homemade sliced fries.
They offer 20-ounce
sodas, vitamin water and
energy drinks.
Eppler has opened 27
restaurants for others
during a 24-year career
and decided it was time
to open his own with
his wife. He moved from
Racine, Wis., to Tarpon
Springs, where he joined
Fast Eddie's eventually
becoming a chef. Five
years later, wanting to
learn new concepts, he
moved to Sarasota as a
chef in casual and fine
dining establishments.
Working in Orlando, he
was rated No. 1 fish taco
maker. Subsequently, he
attended the Art Institute
of Tampa's culinary
program.
"My ultimate goal is
to have eight Night Owls
eateries around college
campuses," said Eppler.
His wife has worked on
the service side of res-
taurants and will manage
their new eatery, open
from 4 p.m. to 3 a.m.

BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Luca Cassani and
Antonio Pariano, owners
of Cassariano Italian
Eatery, 305-B W.Venice
Ave., have acquired
nearby 311 W Venice
Ave., leased and occupied
by B&B Bootery Inc. and
BW Francis Inc.
Built in 1925 with
a total area of 10,000
square feet, it is a two-
story building with
apartments over the
retail stores.
Declining to make a
statement on his future
intentions, Pariano
said, "Nothing has been
decided for the future;
at the moment it is an
investment."
Paricas Property,
owned by Cassani and
Pariano, acquired the
property for $850,000
from Gary Boruff, who
had purchased it in 1984


for $475,000.
Both Cassani and
Pariano were born and
raised in Northern Italy.
Cassani has worked in
international hotels and
a Sarasota restaurant,
and Pariano graduated

BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Ordering your custom
sub, wrap, sliced meats
and cheeses online or
via mobile device from
a Publix Super Market is
about to become a reality
said Shannon Patten,
Media & Community
Relations manager.
"A natural extension of
our service commitment
is this Publix Deli online
ordering, especially for


our on-the-go custom-
ers," Patten said.
Following in-store tri-
als, the service is sched-
uled to launch Aug. 3 at
a Lakeland store. The
company is expecting
to roll out the program
in 50 additional stores,
including a handful of
Tampa Bay area loca-
tions, later this year.
"As far as the specific
locations, at this time
we are not announcing
where they will be, in case


something changes unex-
pectedly," said Patten.
At www.publix.com/
order, customers select
their desired deli custom
sub or wrap, choosing
sliced meats, cheeses,
toppings and combo
meal components, if
desired. An order can be
for immediate process-
ing, which usually takes
15-20 minutes, or the
customer will be offered
a list of pickup times. An
order pickup number


will be provided with the
final order summary.
Orders will be held in a
designated location in the
deli department identi-
fied with an "Online Easy
Pick-up" sign. Online
payment is not available
at this time, so payment
can be made at any reg-
ister. No minimum order
is required for this free
service, and sale prices
effective on the day of
pickup will be honored.
Although not generally


available in the U.S.,
online grocery shopping
has grown consider-
ably in U.K. grocery
superstores. The largest,
Tesco, charges $3.20 for
its Click and Pick service,
in which the customer
chooses a two-hour time
slot to collect an order
from the store. Orders are
accepted 24/7, with the
ordered goods collected,
packed and safely stored
in the fridge, freezer
or cupboard per the


customer's instructions.
A Publix test of a simi-
lar concept was well liked
but not widely used.
"Publix tested online
grocery ordering with
their Curbside Service
at three locations from
Summer 2010 to January
2012," said Patten. "The
customers who used this
service loved it, but there
wasn't enough business
to sustain this service."

He knocked her to the
ground, got on top of
her and pushed her chin
upward, preventing her
from screaming. She

"You are not arresting
me," he told deputies.

Veigel, who was bleeding,
was subdued.
Veigel, 100 block
Greencove Road, Venice,
was charged with domes-
tic battery and resisting
an officer. Bond was set
at $50,750.

chotic episode."
According to a Sarasota
County
Sheriff's
Office
report,
R alcohol was
involved.

a verbal
argument with the victim
when it became physical
and he struck her in the
lower lip with a dinner
plate, causing a small
laceration.
She called deputies. He
fled.
Hours later she called

Woman punched
by boyfriend's
daughter
A dispute ended in a
battery charge against an
intoxicated Venice woman.


According to a Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office
report:
Courtney
A. Keenan
had been
drinking at
|the home
of her
boyfriend
when he
KEENAN arrived at
the home.
A physical altercation
ensued.
He told deputies she
was "out of control,"
and that he was pushed
in the chest, although
deputies observed
lacerations on his face,
abdomen and hand. The
man said he called his
daughter in to defuse
the situation, but when
Keenan struck her, she
struck back, punching
Keenan in the eye.
After Keenan was
arrested she attempted
to kick out the right rear
window of the patrol
car. She was placed in
a hobble restraint and
transported to Sarasota
Memorial Hospital to be
medically cleared before
being transported to the
North County Jail.
Keenan, 600 block
Sugarwood Court,
Venice, was charged with
domestic battery. Bond

Accidental
shooting in Venice
A 14-year-old was
showing a gun to a
12-year-old when the
gun went off, leaving a
.22 caliber bullet in the
12-year-old's leg.
Venice police and fire-
fighters responded to the
scene of the accident in
the 1000 block of Myrtle
Avenue around 11 a.m.
July 16.
The juvenile was
transported to Sarasota
Memorial Hospital. His
injury is not considered
life-threatening. The
accident continues to be
under investigation. No
other details have been
released.

911 call that goes to
residences in a particular
neighborhood.
Some people who got
the call around 2 p.m.
Monday set out on their
bicycles or on foot to
search for the missing
Alzheimer's patient.
Because the man had
once lived in the Capri
Isles neighborhood,
police focused their
search in that area. A mail
delivery person advised
an officer that he'd seen
an elderly man being
picked up and taken to
the golf club. The officer
found the missing man
safe at the club.
"This is great example
of the Venice commu-
nity helping the police
department achieve a
positive outcome for
a vulnerable citizen,"
Venice Police Chief Tom
McNulty said.

Membership in more than one
business organization is com-
mon, according to Ryan.
"Many of our members
belong to various networking
groups, civic organizations and


nonprofits to benefit our com-
munity and their businesses," he
wrote in an email, adding that he
and his members look forward to
working with the new entity.
In addition to Thomas, found-
ing officers and board members
areVen Konuru of Jeevy Comput-
ing, president; Bryan Guetner
of Re/Max Platinum Realty,
secretary; Hank Goldsby of First


America Bank, treasurer; and
Sharon Guy, attorney.
Plans are to hold monthly
breakfast meetings the second
Thursday of the month at
7.30 a.m. Thomas plans to apply
for membership in the American
Chamber of Commerce and set
up the organization as a nonprofit
501(c) (3). Jeevy Computing is cur-
rently in the process of building


the chamber website, incorporat-
ing a newsletter.
Additional promotions being
discussed include a mailing high-
lighting local companies to about
4,000 local homes; Christmas light
displays and carol-singing; and
fun runs and fairs to bring back
community spirit in the Osprey
and Nokomis communities.
"This community had lost its

merce, business and residential

proudly say we are right here on

a blessing. We have been
doubly blessed today."
Thomas and Lori
Murphy, 19-year residents
of Venice, were at the
ceremony, watching from
a distance.
"We were there in our
car, but walking any dis-
tance is difficult on a dry
day, so we decided to not


chance it," said Thomas,
who serves on the Venice
Planning Commission.
They have a special
connection to the memo-
rial their son, Patrick
Sean Murphy, 36, and a
vice president at Marsh
& McLennan, died on
the 97th floor ofWorld
Trade Center Tower One.
In Princeton Junction,
N.J., there is a memorial
dedicated to him and four
others who died that day.
Kit McKeon, vice mayor


of Venice, nearly had his
own brush with tragedy.
"My wife and I lived in
the D.C. area for 20 years,
where I was the director of
Army marketing for Black-
hawk helicopters," he
said. "The Pentagon was
my customer. On the day
before 9/11, I was in the
room one corridor away
from where the plane hit
the next morning.
"That afternoon I flew
to Venice to visit my
parents and next morning,


sitting on the couch hav-
ing coffee, my wife called
fromVirginia and said,
'You had better look at the
television.'
"I'm lucky."
Ava Doraisamy, 15,
president of the Young
Conservatives of Sarasota,
also said a few words.
"I was in first grade
when our Twin Towers
were attacked and I did
not fully understand the
full impact of that attack,"
she said. "Terrorists of


9/11 planned and then
carried out these attacks
on our country. It was
unthinkable before
Sept. 11, 2001, but it
must never be unthink-
able again. It is up to my
generation and every
generation coming after
us to keep us whole and
free. This memorial on
which we are breaking
ground today will be a
reminder of 9 /11."
After the speeches, it
was time to go to work.


"We are going to put
a shovel in the ground,"
said Sweeney as he and
others involved in the
project donned hard hats
and used shovels to move
sod at the spot where
the memorial will be
constructed.
Work begins on the
memorial next week, and
it will be dedicated on
Tuesday, Sept. 11, this
year.

FUNDING

FROM PAGE 1

for a total campaign war chest of
$608.10. More-active fundraising
has enabled her to increase her
contributions to $15,770 in cash
and check donations so far. She
lent her campaign $16,050 on
June 11, and has in-kind dona-
tions for supplies, T-shirts and
photos totaling $758.10. Her
campaign coffers show a total of
$33,078.10.
The Republican primary is
Aug. 14. Republican write-in
candidate Victoria Brill, whose
stated purpose for her candidacy
is to close the race to Democrats
and independents, submitted
a one-page "waiver of report"


that shows no contributions or
expenses.
Business and individual dona-
tions are capped at $200 in the
race.
Sarasota residents Richard and
Rosemarie Myerson donated
$200 to Thaxton while he was
running for the commission seat,
and were just as happy to sup-
port him in the supervisor race.
"I think he's a man of high
integrity and he's very intel-
ligent," Richard Myerson said.
"We're glad to see him run for
this office."
Richard Holder has lived in
Venice for 15 years and worked
with Thaxton when he first
ran for county commission.
Holder, who also gave $200,
and has been a president and
on the board of directors of his


homeowners association, praised
Thaxton's work and was eager to
contribute.
"Jon Thaxton has always been
there to talk to us and meet with
us to discuss issues," Holder said.
"Sometimes he doesn't go for
things that we would like, but
overall he has been a great com-
missioner and listens well.... the
reason I'm supporting him for
supervisor of elections is because
he's so good working with people,
and he's very specific on his
issues and how he does things."
Dent has received several
$100 and $200 donations from
individuals and businesses,
including a $200 donation from
Polk County Supervisor of Elec-
tions Lori Edwards.
"I'm just a big supporter of
Kathy," Edwards said.


Judith Hillery, a retired judge
from Osprey, gave $200 to Dent's
campaign.
"I've known her since I came
down to Florida, I like her and
I think she's been doing a great
job," she said. "So I'm support-
ing her primary campaign. I've
contributed to campaigns before,
but some people don't need the
money as bad as other people."
Several other smaller dona-
tions of less than $100 are in the
report, including a $20 dona-
tion from George Johnston of
Englewood.
"I've always thought she's
done a good job," Johnston said.
"I've followed what she's done
in elections and I've seen all the
problems people have caused
her. She's very deserving."
Thaxton's campaign has


incurred $55,177.60 in total
expenditures to date, and
$24,006.94 in the reporting
period. In addition to money
returned to donors, $6,979.62
was spent on the county qualify-
ing fee, and $6,000 in consulting
from K.D. Logistics ofVenice.
Thaxton also paid $3,850.54 for a
mailing from K.D. Logistics.
Dent has incurred expenses
totaling $7,365.26; $6,746.16
of that in the reporting period.
On July 6, she spent $2,080 on
advertising with WLSS/Salem
Communications in Tampa, and
she made two separate pay-
ments of $1,431.21 and $1,491
in June. She also spent $20
to attend the North Port Area
Republican Club's candidate
picnic in April.

DOCK

FROM PAGE 1

The ordinance unveiled
Tuesday is a work in
progress, said Planning
Administrator Chad Minor.
Fees have yet to be
established, but the struc-
ture to process dock per-
mits is in place. City staff
emphasized it would rely
on consultants to process
major permit applications,
with the applicant paying
for the review.
The planning board's
only concern was being left
out of the process.
Members wanted to
know why major dock
permit applications nor-
mally the stuff of planning


boards bypassed the
planning commission
altogether.
Minor said it was simply
modeled after the county's
process, and didn't reflect
any other intention except
to streamline the process.
The commission signed
off on the draft ordinance,
but not before modifying it
to require all major projects
- estimated at one every
three years or so receive
its consideration.
City council will have
final say on that matter.
The draft ordinance moves
next to council for its
consideration.
Minor said the ordinance
only applies to waters
affected by a tide, and not
ponds or lakes.
Minor permits, including


most repairs, would be
handled administratively.
City council would have
final say on major permit
applications.
"I was surprised,"
Minor said. "Not a whole
lot of property would fall
under this jurisdiction. It's
mostly waterfront property
located in the Crow's Nest
area.
In other action, the plan-
ning commission:
Denied an application
to expand a home on
Sunset Drive. The applicant
sought to add 204 square
feet of living space to an
existing two-story home,
plus a 949-square-foot
garage and a 363-square-
foot porch. But it exceeded
the allowable lot coverage
of 30 percent of the lot by


5 percent. Commission-
ers voted 4-3 against the
application, saying the
applicant was unable to
prove a financial hardship
or uniqueness of the prop-
erty that would support a
variance of the lot coverage
regulation.
Approved two site-
plan amendments for
the 73-acre Laurel Road
property known as the
Renaissance project to
reflect the removal of 21.5
acres that was added to
the Toscana Isles housing
project. Agents for the
property owner sought
to update the applicable
land use permits to keep
the permits up to date and
current.
Granted a site and
development plan petition


to build a new 5,148 square
foot building for the Venice
Area Board of Relators.
The request also sought


a waiver of the city's side-
walk requirement, which
was also granted.

SUN NEWSPAPERS


OUR VIEW



Springs' future is at a crossroads


Commissioners from Sarasota
County and North Port were
back on track Monday when
they decided to extend the life of an
arrangement to keep Warm Mineral
Springs operating continuously while
developing a long-range plan for the
area.
People are champing at the bit
after 18 months of joint city-county
ownership, but no one is ready to
move forward with an overall plan for
development. There are basic issues
that still need to be explored and, like
it or not, those will take some time.
So the initial thought that the
short-term operator, Cypress Lending
Group Ltd., might be needed only
until June 2013, presumably when
a comprehensive plan was in place,
proved unrealistic. The fact is, there
really wasn't much of an alternative
at this point: The process is more
complicated than had been antici-
pated. The boards agreed to negotiate
for another two years of spa operation


while the conceptual planning process
continues.
But they did link one to the other,
and they did switch the proposal
process to allow for a bidder to
impress them with a long-term plan
to operate the Warm Mineral Springs
Day Spa. If that happens, so much
the better.
North Port, which will take the
lead in the process, may also hire
a consultant with expertise in spa
development. Again, that's a positive
sign: We want to develop the area
carefully and correctly, but we need to
move with a stronger sense of purpose
to carve out what promises to be an
economic development engine for
health and wellness tourism, as well
as ecotourism.
The joint meeting was a giant leap
forward from the previous one, when
the two boards seemed to stumble
through the basics. This time, they
heard from staff members who had
done some leg work by traveling to


Hot Springs, Ark., and a well-being
travel conference in Arizona.
One thing they heard was that the
spa/wellness industry generated in
the neighborhood of $100 billion a
year. The possibility for economic
development here is great.
But there was a cautionary note:
The conceptual plan must be compre-
hensive and it must be tasteful. As city
planner Michele Norton said, much
of the business community in Hot
Springs was struggling.
"We have be mindful about how we
develop the area," she said.
The Hot Springs people also warned
about the need to understand the
hydrology of the 87-degree, mineral-
rich springs. The two boards agreed
to ask the U.S. Geological Survey to
investigate the source of the springs,
but they balked at the idea of a
full-blown study. The USGS will come
back with a proposal for the cost and
the scope of the work involved, and
the boards will decide at a later date


what type of study should be done.
We're hopeful the study won't
hold up progress unnecessarily. Cliff
Harrison, a hydrologist with Sarasota
County Utilities, said the research
suggested the main water source is
"thousands of feet deep." Develop-
ment in the mid-section of the state
would likely affect water flow more
than development on or next to the
site, he said. If so, this could clear
the way for a boutique hotel on the
far reaches of the property. A private
developer is also eager to step in with
medical and wellness businesses and
services.
It's taken awhile to get to this point,
but we seem to be moving with
greater speed and a better sense of
direction. Preservation of this asset is
important, but we hope to be able to
make Warm Mineral Springs a self-
sustaining attraction whose spillover
impact will spur badly needed
economic development in the com-
munity and surrounding area.


Appearance's sake


It was supposed to be a
typical Florida morning, hot
and clear, but the weather
did not cooperate, yet people
appeared.
It was pouring down rain,
windy and just plain nasty out
doors, yet people appeared.
It was scheduled at an awk-
ward time of day, yet people
appeared.
The thought crossed my
mind not to go out in the ter-
rible weather. I quickly dis-
missed that thought and made
up my mind to appear.
The 9/11 Memorial ground-
breaking was held Tuesday
morning at Patriots Park.
There were people there in
the pouring rain to celebrate a
vision of a couple of guys and
a community. Soon we will see
a monument that contains an
actual beam from the World
Trade Center Towers, remind-
ing us of that terrible day.
As I was listening to the
speakers who are working so
hard to finally get this fantastic
monument completed, my
mind drifted back to a hospital
room on Sept. 10, 2001. My
wife at the time was pregnant
with my daughter and was
having a rough time of it with
all the nausea. She was dehy-
drated, and the doctor needed
to keep her under emergency
care through the night.
Finally, some time around
midnight she stabilized, and
we slept.
I woke up on Sept. 11 with
her fighting another bout of
sickness. I glanced up at the TV
and thought to myself, what
kind of movie shows a plane
crashing into the World Trade
Center? Then the words "Live
Coverage" appeared at the
bottom of the screen and our
world stopped as we watched
horror unfold.
I sat there most of the day
dazed like most Americans
wondering why this happened,


how this happened and who
was to blame. I watched the
news as we as a country faced
perhaps the greatest shock to
us since Dec. 7, 1941. Yet again
America was under attack.
As the rain began to pick
up, it brought me back to the
present day and a speaker stat-
ing that this monument was
for the young people, so they
would not forget. My daughter,
who was protected in the
womb, knows not the pain we
felt that day; she just knows we
are different on Sept. 11 each
year.
She understands we were
attacked, knows some things
about terrorism, but as par-
ents we protect the innocence
of youth and we simply don't
detail it for those who were
spared the horror. However,
we must not allow her to
forget.
What shall we never let her
forget? The attacks? Our reac-
tions? Al-Qaida? The towers
falling? I was tormented right
then as I stood listening to the
speaker, and then out of the
blue it came to me, just as the
rain subsided. While I must tell
her of the entire event in detail
and remind her how much she
should value what we have in
our world, the most important
thing I could ever tell her was
after the event happened on
that day, people appeared.
At the risk of losing
their lives that day, people
appeared.
Knowing that there would
be an emotional cost as well
as personal illness stemming
from this tragedy, people
appeared.
When there was need in
burning buildings, people
appeared.
Yes, even when we lost loved
ones, people appeared.
While we must never forget
the attacks and the damage
done to our great nation, we
must continue to do the things
that teach the generation after
never to forget.
Additionally, we have to
teach them that no matter
what we face in America,
no matter what it costs,
when tragedy strikes, those
Americans who are able simply
appear.

WHAT DO YOU THINK WILL BE THE MAJOR ISSUES IN THIS YEAR'S CITY COUNCIL


ELECTION? CALL US AT 941-207
Give. I'm the mother of a
young adult who is participat-
ing in Challenger baseball. I'm
calling to ask city council to
reconsider its decision about
the Challenger baseball field.
I wonder if the residents or
council members would feel
the same way if any of their
children or grandchildren were
participating in the program.
By reconsidering their deci-
sion, council members can
show that they are a support-
ive people who are willing to
do something to make other
people's life better and give of
themselves.
Seal them. To our Venice
supermarkets: Could you
please seal bags of cherries
and grapes? It's disturbing to
watch some customers pick at
them, and unsanitary, espe-
cially if these people have just
handled meat. Bags of sealed
apples and pears are available,
and I feel comfortable eat-
ing these without scrubbing,
knowing they haven't been
fondled and bruised.
Micro. It's hard to believe
city council openly discussed
the topic of trying to figure
out how to take a particular
employee out of one position
and putting him in a manage-
ment position. It's hard to
believe that a member of city
council publicly asked if a job
title, job description or job
duties can simply be changed
on a particular position to sat-
isfy the state Public Employee
Relation Commission require-
ments. It seems strange that
they would discuss it at the
council level. It sounded like
the city officials, including
the city attorney and the city
personnel administrator, had
already made the decision on
this subject and had promptly
handled the position in ques-
tion. It was clear cut. Why were
they allowed to bring it before
council? The staff was trying


Let 'em


Have It
to get it across to the council
that they had already handled
it. It sounds like council is
micro-managing.
No respect. People who use
the Gondolier Sun to smear
individuals without leaving
their names do not deserve our
respect.
Shame. Why isn't gas at the
pumps coming down faster?
It should be less than $2.50.
Who's charging us the gas
station owners or the govern-
ment? I'm sick and tired of
paying so much for gas and
groceries, which only go up
and don't come back down.
We the people get screwed like
always. Shame on all of you.
Tell Darrell. This is for
all the people who like the
roundabout. On May 30,
my neighbor, Darrell, was
involved in an accident there
while riding his motor scooter.
He has a fractured orbital
socket, broke all of his ribs on
his left side, broke his clavicle,
had small brain bleed and
multiple abrasions. I didn't
see the accident reported in
the paper. The paper reported


we had between eight and
24 accidents prior to the
roundabout for seven years,
an average of 16 per year. In
seven months, it reported, the
roundabout had 26, which
means we will double or triple
the accidents. But not to
worry, they will all be minor.
Be sure to tell Darrell that
when you visit him at Venice
Regional.
Willpower. The will of the
people be damned. So say
the executive and judicial
branches of the federal govern-
ment. Eventually, only the
Catholic Church and then the
military will have to save our
country. So say the people.
Like Merkel. The caller
who thought Obama should
be like Merkel, of Germany,
should check out Ms. Merkel's
budget. They have exports,
they do have taxes and there's
almost no military. That's how
you balance the budget, and I
agree.
Go elsewhere. Forced to eat
at one of the few dog-friendly
restaurants? No one is forced
to eat at one of the few dog-
friendly restaurants. There is
plenty of separation between
the dogs. Be responsible and
go someplace else.

I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Move it or lose it
Editor:
It's not the airport,
it's where the airport is
located that is the
problem.
When stopped at
the Circus Bridge, do
not blame the boats;
instead, look to the
airport. If the airport
were not restructured
to accommodate big
planes and jets, Venice
could have a fixed
bridge like Fort Myers
Beach. Thousands of
hours wasted waiting.
There is reluctance to
back the Circus Arena
project because of its
proximity to the airport.
An article explained
illegal involvement by
airport supporter Marty
Kretchman in aVenice
election. Kretchman was
fined and claimed he
acted alone. It is hard
to believe he was not
influenced by VASI and
VABA.
The airport's location
intensifies problems of
safety, health, environ-
ment and ethical-legal
issues.
Recent council action
placed 24 homes back
in the RPZ, leaving these
homes vulnerable to
eminent domain. Airport
Administrator Chris
Rozansky has stated the
FAA controls the airport.
This leaves Venice little
to say about the RPZ, the
24 homes or eminent
domain no matter what
Mayor Holic thinks(s)"
Council Member
McKeon believes(s"
or Nick Carlucci
promises(s)" No wonder
manyVenetians have a
"control it, move it or
close it" attitude.
A recent column in
the Gondolier Sun by
Ted Koszarski said the
airport contributes very
little to the economy
or niceness of Venice,
as opposed to the golf
course, Sharky's or
Honoluana, which also
sit on airport property
but help make Venice a
great place.
In many ways the
airport is not kind to
Venice.

Brookshire nailed it
Editor:
The thought that
Sandra Brookshire
conveyed in her letter
was so inspirational, I
lamented that she did
not expand it into a
graduation commence-
ment speech to our area's
recent graduates.
Your letter particularly
touched me as related
to events in my life. The
late 1990s included a
life meltdown for me,
culminating in my
divorce being final and
my mother's passing


A Chain is a Chain
They are all the Same
Come to Althea's
We put them to Shame


that same year. But by
early 2000, I had picked
myself up, dusted off
the remains and begun
the sustainable renova-
tion/recycling of our
family's 1958 beach cot-
tage on a barrier island
on the North Carolina
coast.
I had a "conscious
incompetence" regard-
ing the planned sustain-
able addition to my
N.C. home; I embarked
on founding what later
became The North
Carolina Sustainable
Building Design Compe-
tition. The competition
had a wonderful 12-year
run but died this year
due to lack of funding as
a result of the real estate
development crash. The
competition quickly
became statewide at the
collegiate level.
Interestingly, I had no
background in fundrais-
ing and competition
administration, but as
you suggested in your
letter, I was following my
passion, which allowed
me to overcome any
lack of confidence. Once
again, at the age of 66,
I am beginning a new,
souped-up version of
an initiative using the
lessons learned in North
Carolina, using much of
its template. Hopefully,
this initiative will wildly
eclipse the successes of
the last endeavor.
I firmly believe that the
difference between the
ordinary and the extraor-
dinary is passion.

Disaster waiting
to happen
Editor:
There has been
reporting that River
Road will one day be
four lanes. The plan
may have been to take
care of the required
repairs at that time.
Well, the time has come
when we can no longer
wait for a four-lane road
to be built.
It seems that Sarasota
County has an all-or-
nothing view of this
road either complete
four-lane improvements
to make it safe or do
nothing at all. If I were
a county engineer with
a road like this in my
inventory, I would be
ashamed. Some sections
of this road look like
patches over patches
10 times. The profile
of the road is terrible,
with severe rutting
and severe alligator
cracking.
As a former pavement
inspector and non-pave-
ment testing equipment
operator, I deem this
road to be a hazard to
public safety. It needs
immediate repair to spe-
cific sections or immedi-
ate closure. Former State

Editor:
In writing to d

or other religious
that may have si

by the church without

to In this debate, I fear

Health, Education &

the Mount Carmel Guild,
a Catholic charity in
New Jersey, did not defy
the Constitution, as no

At the same time, the
bishop of Newark and
his staff knew that they
would be bound by civil

receiving federal aid.
Those laws are based on
the Bill of Rights and the
Constitution.
Bishop Dewane wrote,
"[T]he HHS mandate
demands that religious
organizations and indi-
viduals provide abortion-
inducing drugs, steriliza-
tion and contraception,
which are contrary to
both our core beliefs and
our identities as religious
individuals."
I believe the bishop's
strong feelings tend to
misstate the facts as I
understand them. The
organizations, I have
read, do not have to
provide abortion-induc-
ing drugs, etc. Instead,
they have to provide
their workers with the

No longer an issue
Editor:
As is clear from
every survey reported
among Catholics, the
birth-control issue was
settled decades ago.
The bishops have now
resurrected the issue,
claiming it to be central
to religious freedom. It
has superseded both
women's health matters
and the abortion issue.
(Birth control is the most
effective weapon against
abortion.)
The bishops' attempt
to rally Catholics around
the flag of religious
freedom seems a cynical
effort to influence the
outcome of the Novem-
ber election. Fortunately,
as the pope himself
has stated, "individual
conscience supersedes
authority."

Beware RINOs


As the slate of can-
didates for local office
has come into focus, the
dominance of Sarasota's
Republican Party once
again is clear.
Thirty candidates are
Republicans and three
are Democrats, with
three write-in candi-
dates, one Libertarian
and one independent
rounding out the field.
Surely, the Republican
Party is doing what
any party should -
organizing, grooming
candidates and getting
out their vote. Nothing
wrong with that; it's
smart politics.
Problems creep in,
however, when local
races are no longer com-
petitive and candidates
count on voters who
vote along party lines,
assuming all Republi-
cans walk their talk.
To many, a vote for
a Republican is a vote
for fiscal responsibil-
ity. Many believe it's
a vote for the free
market, accountability
and smart economic
decisions. One-party
Republican rule has
been the status quo in
Sarasota County for
decades. But have our
local leaders made good
on these Republican
values?
Our county's recent
history is littered with
examples of how local
leaders have not walked
the Republican talk.
Unethical county pro-
curement practices came
to a head in 2011 when
a county employee was
arrested. The acceptance
of gifts by the employee
was obviously wrong,
and just as important,
the practice of tailoring
bidding specifications
to favored vendors is
anti-competitive and
detrimental to our local
economy.
County economic
development grants
without accountability
(e.g., Sanborn Studios)
are diametrically
opposed to common
sense and Republican
values. Most support
smart growth in our
county, but was the
county commission's
decision to open the
door to unlimited


building heights truly in
step with conservative
values? Where is the
restraint?
One example of poor
fiscal management
occurred a few years
back when the county
purchased land from
Schroeder-Manatee
Ranch through the
Environmentally Sensi-
tive Lands Protection
Program. Schroeder-
Manatee knew it was
giving up development
rights to the land
(adjacent to its planned
Villages project) in
exchange for $7 million
from Sarasota taxpay-
ers. Voters were getting
what they approved
via referendum the
acquisition and protec-
tion of natural lands.
As time went on,
Schroeder-Manatee
wanted more. Com-
missioner Jon Thaxton
publicly told the com-
pany: "You can have
the money ($7 million
for development rights)
or the density (for the
village). You can't have
both." But the county
commission ultimately
gave both. Schroeder-
Manatee was ultimately
allowed to claim the
now-county-owned land
as greenway or buffer
space for its project and
keep our $7 million.
Why would the county
commission pay millions
for land, then allow the
property to serve as gre-
enway space for a devel-
opment project? Why
wouldn't our Republican
commission approve
such a plan without
insisting on compensa-
tion for the taxpayers,
either in dollars or land?
Why would a Republican
county commission fail
so miserably in its duty
to steward our financial
and environmental
resources? Do they really
deserve to be called
Republicans?
When casting our
ballots in local races,
let's all remember
party affiliation doesn't
necessarily reflect party
values. No doubt these
concerns are shared
by our local tea party
activists. Every voter
must ask: will the real
Republican please stand
up? And who knows?
Sometimes, it might
even be a Democrat.

Government, is active

"Overall, it was great,"
said Venice manager Jude


Venice's Josh Schaad strokes a single in the first inning against
Lehigh Acres in the 9-10-year-old Section 6 Little League Tour-

them. I was figuring that
if they went 2-1 it would
be quite an achievement.
Ended up with a win,
and it's a good way to
end. I think they played
awesome. As a team,
they came together. Most
of the games we played
great defense."
On Sunday against
Greater Naples, Venice
fell behind 2-0 before
scoring four runs in the
bottom of the first inning
on one hit and five walks.
Bases-loaded walks to
Nick Berhalter and Dillon
Pisano scored two runs,
then two more runs
scored on a single by Nick
D'Aiuto.
Venice went ahead
6-2 with two runs in the
second inning. With two
outs, J.C.Wardlaw walked,
stole second and went to
third on a passed ball. An
error by the third base-
man allowed Wardlaw to
score and a dropped fly
ball in left field let Sam
Ottman cross the plate.
Greater Naples went


ahead 10-6 by scoring
eight unearned runs in
the top of the third inning
on three hits, two errors,
five walks, three wild
pitches and a passed ball.
"At this level, if you
throw strikes you are at
a big advantage," said
Pisano.
After a 74-minute rain
delay, Venice came back
with some offense by
scoring nine runs includ-
ing eight with two outs.
In the inning, Gehrig
Wright hit a two-run sin-
gle while Toby Anderson
and Pisano added RBI
singles. Josh Schaad also
hit a two-run single.
"After the rains, the
runs came," said Pisano.
After the rain delay,
Venice pitcher Steve
Barosh came back and
got Greater Naples out
1-2-3.
Venice went ahead
18-10 on a three-run
home run by Schaad in
the bottom of the fourth
inning. It was Schaad's
second home run of the
tournament. The final run

CareerEdge gets extra county funding


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER
Sarasota County com-
missioners found a way
last week to give an extra
$100,000 to an area orga-
nization that specializes
in training and growing
the local workforce.
In July 2010,
CareerEdge, a non-
profit that works to
get a skilled training
force and accelerate job
creation, was awarded
an economic develop-
ment incentive grant
of $200,000 from the
county's Economic
Incentive Fund, to be
paid in installments over


a four-year period. So
far, the nonprofit had
received $100,000.
In May, CareerEdge
had asked that the
commission increase its
annual investment over
the next two years from
$50,000 to $100,000,
which would allow the
organization to expand
its work with Sarasota
County employees and
employers.
Now eligible for
its third installment,
CareerEdge requested
this week an additional
$50,000 in conjunction
with the payment, for a
total of $100,000.
However, a resolution


recently adopted by the
commission states the
incentive fund should
be utilized for only
private businesses,
making nonprofit
organizations like
CareerEdge now
ineligible for assistance
from the fund.
Commissioners
debated briefly about
using funds from the
Economic Incentive
Fund anyway, but
decided to grant
CareerEdge's $100,000
request using remaining
funds from the county's
tax-delinquent-lot fund.
"One of the reasons
we've asked for an


increase in funding is we
have a lot to do in the
area of manufacturing,"
CareerEdge Executive
Director Mireya Eavey
said at Wednesday's
commission meeting. "A
lot of our employers say
they have the vacancies
but cannot find skilled
workers. We want to
put more money into
apprenticeship-type
programs, because it is
hard for manufacturers
to hire people right out
of school without some
of these skills. Without
this, we don't have the
skilled workforce incen-
tives, and companies
will not come here;


they're not going to stay
here and they're not
going to grow."
When CareerEdge
started in 2010, its goal
was to work with 300
people and 10 employ-
ers. Through the first
quarter of this year alone
it had worked with more
than 1,500 people and 14
employers.
In a presentation
of an impact-analysis
study to the commis-
sion, data showed that
CareerEdge helped 284
people get jobs and se-
cure raises for 589 work-
ers in Sarasota County
that increased their
annual income by a


combined $1.5 million.
The group also helps
with tuition expenses of
employees who can-
not take advantage of
tuition-reimbursement
programs through
employers, part of
its Bridges to Career
program.
"Microsoft Elevate
America and Bank of
America invested in our
Bridges to Careers pro-
gram for the underem-
ployed and unemployed
individual who needs
basic job readiness and
technical skills to enter
the workplace," Eavey
said.

County OKs controversial hog-hunt program


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER
Sarasota County
commissioners have
approved a controversial
hunting program aimed
at reducing the abun-
dant feral hog popula-
tion that's destroying
vegetation, crops and
wildlife at Deer Prairie
Creek Preserve near
North Port.
Commissioners voted
4-1, with Jon Thaxton
dissenting, to go ahead
with the hunt on the
6,440-acre preserve and
the nearby 1,722-acre
Schewe tract.
Karen Ankerstar of


Sarasota showed com-
missioners a video of
a squealing hog being
trapped by a dog and
killed by a hunter using a
knife, similar to what will
take place on the proper-
ties. The county jointly
owns Deer Prairie with
the Southwest Florida
Water Management
District; the Schewe tract
is owned solely by the
district.
"The meat industry
is not a pretty one, with
many atrocities and
mistakes," said Michael
Rodgers, a Publix worker
from Sarasota County.
"However, does this jus-
tify this proposed murder


- one that is loaded with
unnecessary suffering by
the animals?"
Sarasota County
resident Hank Dunn was
the only person to speak
to the board in favor of
the hunt.
"It's a legal means of
hunting in the state of
Florida," Dunn said.
"I'm not really sure why
these people think they
should be able to tell
me how me and my
family should hunt to
feed ourselves. With
that being said, this is a
long-term problem that
is going to take a long-
term answer."
Dunn said the two


hunts, set for Dec. 11-13,
and March 19-21, 2013,
would help, but suggested
that a longer season
for bow and gun hunt-
ing would be a better
solution.
"We, the taxpayers,
want to help you with
the problem," Dunn said.
"Tell us how you want
us to do it. We're here for
you."
Water district staff, in
their presentation for the
hunt, said the rooting
hogs severely damage the
land, eat citrus and corn
crops, destroy bird nests
and kill other wildlife
and have been hit by
cars.


"We have found that
this particular type
of hunt is 50 percent
more effective than
other hunts that
we've conducted for
(the) Florida Fish and
Wildlife (Conservation
Commission)," said
Terri Behling with the
district.
Commissioner Carolyn
Mason made the motion
to approve the hunt, say-
ing she's personally seen
the damage the hogs do
and "finds it necessary
to control the hogs."
Commissioner John
Barbetta seconded the
motion, to which some-
one in the audience


yelled, "Yes, you can!"
when he said he didn't
see many alternatives.
Thaxton, the only com-
missioner who opposed
the measure, said he's
been a hunter most of
his life.
"Control of the feral
hogs is just as critical
as controlling the rats
in our homes they're
just that much of a
nuisance," he said. "But I
come down on the opin-
ion that this particular
methodology does not
fit our county, and I will
not be supporting this
motion."

Ron McCarty, curator of the
Ca d'Zan mansion at the John
and Mable Ringling Museum
of Art, is vice president of the
Sarasota Alliance for Historic
Preservation and was one of
the orchestrators of the house
tour in Venice.

By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

The Sarasota Alliance
for Historic Preservation
recently toured a contem-
porary house in Venice,
a city better known for
Mediterranean Revival
architecture.
"There are interesting
twists to historic pres-
ervation when it comes
to modern buildings,"
architect Joe King said to
tour-goers. "The Italian-
design buildings in Venice
are logical candidates.
All those buildings were
intended to look old when
built. They have a sense of
permanence and stability.
"Yet this postwar house,
while old, still looks new.
Designed by Paul
Rudolph, the simple
square building is known
as the Taylor House. Built
in 1955-56 on Tarpon
Street, the small, two-
bedroom, two-bath house
may be as important
to Venice as any of the
houses built under the
John Nolen Plan recently
listed on the National
Register of Historic Places.
While Nolen is considered
by many to be the father of
city planning in America,
Rudolph was a leader in
the development of what
has become known as
the Sarasota School of
Architecture, also making
a name for himself on the
world stage.
Rudolph's Florida work
is covered extensively in
"Paul Rudolph: the Florida
Houses," which was
co-written by Christopher
Domin and King and
published in 2009 by
Princeton Architectural
Press. His international
work includes the Lippo
Building in Hong Kong
and the Concourse Office
Tower in Singapore.
Owned by Michael
Saunders Realtor Helen
Moore, the Tarpon Street
house was built the same
year that Rudolph was
designing a new art center
atWellesley and the United
States Embassy building in
Jordan, King said. Rudolph
also designed the circa
1958-59 contemporary
addition to Sarasota
High School, which was
completed shortly before
Rudolph moved on to New
Haven to become dean of
the School of Architecture
at Yale University. The Art
& Architecture building
he designed for Yale was
renamed Rudolph Hall

after the architect's death,
according to information
from Yale University.


With a sale pending on
the Taylor house, attendees
were concerned that a new
owner might tear down the
house to build something
grander on the special
site the south end of
a canal facing the Eagle
Point Club.
"The way to save such a
house is to buy it," Moore
said. "Probably 99 percent
of the people who looked
at this house wanted to
keep it as it is. One couple
who own a contemporary
house in Connecticut were
sick when they heard it
had sold."
More than 80 Alliance
members journeyed from


Sarasota to Venice to see
this house because it is
considered to be such
a fine example of the
Sarasota School's postwar
modem houses. It was
showcased "as part of the
Alliance's program of Best
Opportunities in Historic
Preservation,' which brings
to the attention of the pub-
lic important buildings of
architectural and historical
significance," Cook wrote
before the event.

the house is simply a

square box divided into
three sections.
As explained by King, it
"exemplifies the melding
of the modern with the
adaptation to the Florida
climate."
"The house is based
on a common American
vernacular house form
- the 'dog trot' which
was an open breezeway
flanked by 'pens' on either
side," he said.
The north/south
orientation features a main
entrance to the south. To
the north is the end of a
canal that leads directly


toward the Eagle Point
Club. Two bedrooms and
two baths are to the east
and the kitchen and ad-
ditional living space are in
the third to the west.
Sliding-glass walls at
either end of the kitchen
wing are augmented by
more sliding-glass doors
in the center of the wall
that opens to the dog trot
area. Sliding doors that
fully open the bedrooms
to the dog trot are at the
north and south ends
of that central area and

Kidney Foundation seeks clothing donations


FROM NATIONAL KIDNEY
FOUNDATION OF FLORIDA

The brightly colored
yellow donation box
at 1687 South U.S. 41
Bypass next to Bonefish
Grill is now accepting
donations of clothing
and small household
items.
"We asked our donors
how we could make
their donation experi-
ence better and found
that people like the


convenience of having
a donation drop box
that allows them to
donate their clothing
and household items
whenever they want,"
said Stephanie Hutchin-
son, CEO of the National
Kidney Foundation of
Florida.
"And the exciting thing
is the boxes feature a
quick response code
that allows donors with
smartphones to request a
donation receipt right at


the drop box."
The QR codes are two-
dimensional barcodes
that have been growing
in popularity for a variety
of uses. There are many
free QR code readers for
smartphones. National
Kidney Foundation
added the black-and-
white icons on drop
boxes as a quick way
for donors to get their
receipts when dropping
off donations.
Donors without


a smartphone may
request a receipt by
contacting The National
Kidney Foundation
Truck Pick-Up Program
at www.nkfpickup.
org/tax-receipt or
877-448-2653.
The foundation has
many fundraising
programs that support
its mission. The clothing
donation program is cel-
ebrating 30 years help-
ing Florida residents
with kidney disease. The


program does free home
pickup of donations on
a set schedule. A yellow
postcard is mailed to let
people know donation
trucks will be in the
area.
"Our home pickups
have proven very suc-
cessful as we've received
more than $2 million in
support from sending the
trucks into the com-
munities," Hutchinson
said. "We'll still have our
trucks coming to Venice


and other areas to pick
up donations. The drop
box will just be a con-
venient way for folks to
donate items in between
pick-ups."

donation program or

be in the area, visit www.

Florida improves test-score ranking


Report suggests Florida is a national model for progress


FROM FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
A new study by Education
Next ranks Florida second in
the nation for education test-
score gains.
The report examines inter-
national and U.S. state trends
in student achievement growth
using National Assessment of
Educational Progress math-
ematics, reading and science
data from 1992 to 2011.
Eric Hanushek, Paul Peter-
son and LudgerWoessmann
conducted the study, which


shows that Florida gained
3.2 percent of a standard
deviation annually, well more
than a full year's worth of
additional learning during the
time period. Florida is second
only to Maryland in test-score
improvement between 1992
and 2011.
The top 10 most-improving
states in rank order are
Maryland, Florida, Delaware,
Massachusetts, Louisiana,
South Carolina, New Jersey,
Kentucky, Arkansas and
Virginia.
"Florida is a national leader


in education and the results
of this study clearly show the
incredible accomplishments of
our learners," said Education
Commissioner Gerard Rob-
inson. "I applaud the diligent
work of our students and
teachers, and I am confident
that our state is on the right
path to providing world-class
education to our students."
The United States as a whole
ranks 25th out of 49 countries
in student test-score gains over
a 14-year period.
"If, however, the entire
country performed at the level


of Florida," Hanushek said,
"the U.S. would have ranked
considerably higher among the
participating countries."
Also, Southern states that
began to adopt education
reform measures in the 1990s
outpaced Midwestern states,
where school reform made
little headway until very
recently. Five of the top 10
states were in the South and
no Southern states were in the
bottom 18.
"Achievement Growth: Inter-
national and U.S. State Trends
in Student Performance," was


produced by Harvard's Pro-
gram on Education Policy and
Governance. To view the report,
go to www.hks.harvard.edu.
Education Next is a schol-
arly journal published by the
Hoover Institution that is com-
mitted to looking at hard facts
about school reform. Other
sponsoring institutions are the
Harvard Program on Educa-
tion Policy and Governance,
part of the Taubman Center for
State and Local Government at
the Harvard Kennedy School,
and the Thomas B. Fordham
Foundation.

Grant aids students



in financing college


STAFF REPORT
A new grant from
the Division of Florida
Colleges and the Florida
College System Founda-
tion will help raise the
financial literacy aware-
ness of Florida students
and decrease the
numbers who default
on student loans.
The Financial Literacy
Program Grant will
help students make
better decisions about
how to pay for college
by awarding a $10,000
grant to 10 Florida


colleges to augment
current financial literacy
programs or develop
new programs.
"Paying for college
efficiently is an impor-
tant step to a secure
financial future," said
Florida College System
Chancellor Randy
Hanna. "This grant
will help our colleges
to get the word out
about new and exist-
ing programs that will
help students make the
best decisions for their
situation."
Colleges are encour-


aged to create or
enhance their own
financial literacy
programs or utilize
existing programs,
such as the Navigating
your Financial Future
website. The free
program is offered by
the Florida Department
of Education's Office
of Student Financial
Assistance to help stu-
dents and their families
make sound financial
decisions about their
postsecondary educa-
tion goals.
The financial assis-


tance outreach team
also provides help for
high school and col-
lege staff and students
through interactive
on-campus presenta-
tions, financial literacy
brochures and posters,
and individual student
counseling.
For more information
about the Navigating
Your Financial Future
program or to contact a
member of the financial
assistance outreach
team, go to www.

Florida



earns praise



for decade



of progress


FROM FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
Florida received high
praise for a decade of
progress, according to
a report released by
the Southern Regional
Education Board.
The 2012 Progress
Report on the Chal-
lenge to Lead Goals for
Education showed that
Florida outperformed


other southern states
in many indicators of
student access and suc-
cess. Florida, along with
15 other SREB states,
adopted the Challenge to
Lead Goals for Education
10 years ago to guide
state policymakers and
education leaders in
making decisions about
education in their states.

I GOREN BRIDGE
WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS


Q 1 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

AJ87431 9650 KQ6762

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

A Two bids come into consideration
- one spade and two hearts. Since
your hand is worth only one bid and
your spade suit is so shabby, we
prefer raising to two hearts your
known eight-card or better fit.

Q 2 Neither vulnerable, as South,
you hold:

AAK95 930J944J762

The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
1F Pass 16 Pass
216 Pass ?
What do you bid now?

A An awkward hand. You have a
whit too much to pass, but the only
course of action is to raise partner's
minor. Bid three clubs, and see what
develops.

Q 3 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

AAKQ769830 AQJ66 7


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
14 Pass 22

What action do you take?


EAST
Pass


A You have 16 points, all prime,
plus distributional values, so you
have enough to make a forcing
response. You have a choice between
raising hearts or bidding your second
suit at the three level. We prefer three


diamonds now, intending to support
hearts next.

Q 4 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

4 9 8 5 4 2 Q93 0 Void J 8 7 4 2

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

A It is tempting to bid your five-
card spade suit, but think of all the
problems partner's rebid might
cause. We don't want to make two
bids if it can be avoided, so we'll
settle for a raise to two hearts.

Q 5 Neither vulnerable, as South,
you hold:

6K94 J950 AQ8469753

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

A There is a way to show a limit
raise with only three-card support for
partner's suit, if you play one-no-
trump forcing. Bid that, then jump in
spades at your next turn. If that
sequence is not available to you, raise
to two spades now.

Q 6 Both vulnerable, as South, you
hold:

6 AK Q 10 6 9 0 AK J 7 6 94

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

A There are two ways to approach
this problem. One is to jump to two
spades immediately. The other is to
start with one spade, then jump shift
in diamonds at your next turn. There
is little to choose between the two.

not directly opposite the
central opening on the
west. Both ends of the dog
trot also can be opened
with sliders.
The dog trot area is
slightly lower in elevation
so that it could be hosed
out if necessary. This
house also initially had a
garden area at each end
within the house. Moore
removed the indoor
garden at the north end
to make room for a dining
room that takes advan-
tage of the canal view.
King pointed out the
many ways the sliding
doors could be opened
and closed to take
advantage of prevailing
winds to provide natural
air conditioning. The day
of the alliance event, tem-
peratures were close to
90 degrees yet the house
remained comfortable
for more than 80 people
because of the breeze.
"Sometimes a house
can become complicated,
but this is so simple,
everyone can understand
it," King said. "You can
open the center on one
side and the ends on
the other side. It is clear
proportional diagram-
ming. How often do you
see inside sliding glass
doors. You see where
the breezes are coming
from and open the doors
accordingly."

Simple as a
Greek temple
Despite the simplic-
ity, King said the house
is more than a dog trot
design, incorporating ele-
ments of a Greek temple
as well as the functional-
ism of Gropius, a German
architect.
Like the tetra-style Greek
temple, this house had
four columns on both
the front and back when
built. It also has a vaulted
roof center section. So
that the house would
appear to be totally open
to the outdoors, Rudolph
extended the screens at the
north and south ends to
the eaves and had 4-foot
scuppers installed to drain
water from the roof. The
four columns and screen-
ing remain on the front of
the house but have been
removed at the back where

increases in student suc-
cess and I am confident
that Florida will continue
making progress."

woodsy area near the house.

large stone pavers were
installed as a deck and
an infinity-edge spa pool
was installed in line with
the center of the house.
From within the house the
water in the spa appears to
overflow into the canal.
Designer and architect
Wilson Stiles spoke about
decor elements in this and
similar houses, mention-
ing a change made in the
kitchen.
"My favorite detail is
the kitchen," he said. "The
floor-to-ceiling windows
could be pulled back
and the cabinets were
10 inches above the floor
so the breezes could cool
the feet too.
"Phil Hall was an
interior designer who did
most of the similar houses
(of that era). The original
lights were by Lightolier."

African-American and
Hispanic students nar-
rowed the achievement
gap in NAEP reading and
math at the basic level.
Since 2003, the
percentage of Florida
eighth-graders scoring at
or above the NAEP basic
level in reading increased
five points, and the per-
centage of eighth-graders
performing at or above
the NAEP basic level in
math increased six points.
Participation of Flor-
ida students in Advanced
Placement exceeded the
national rate, and in 2011,
47 percent of graduating
seniors had taken at least
one AP exam in high

seven days a week at 417
South Tamiami Trail, Ven-
ice. Contact Mary Lynn
Szerbin for schedule
at mlszerbin@aol.com,
941-685-8445.


In the home's original kitchen there was air space beneath the
lower kitchen cabinets so that when the back wall was open, a
breeze would carry through that part of the house.


There also is a forced-
air underground heating
system, he said.
Today's kitchen cabinets
rest on the floor as a result
of a renovation sometime
in the past.
Two other aspects of the
design were a segmented,
vaulted plastic roof over
the dog trot and a pine
tree that was incorpo-
rated into the house on
the street side. The tree
remains but is much
larger today. The plastic
roof is gone, replaced by
a peaked roof of concrete
panels.
King said the roof
design was ahead of the
technology of the times.
The plastic leaked, so
while it brought light into
the core, maintenance
was a problem. Ideas such
as the thin plastic roof
and other streamlined
aspects of the house may
have come from Rudolph's
years as a naval architect

school, an increase of 25
percentage points since
2001.
The college graduation
rate at Florida's four-
year public institutions
exceeded the national rate.
By 2011, Florida had
met and implemented all

paign essential elements.

during World War II. King
said the architect applied
some things he learned in
those years to his postwar
home designs.
The walls are original to
the house, built of "Brick
create" that was made by a
company on Third Street
in Sarasota, according to
King. The aluminum slid-
ing doors were fabricated
in Hialeah.
The house also includes
an outdoor kitchen area at
the front with an outdoor
dining area and covered
streetside carport rather
than a garage. A circular
drive and mature land-
scape provide additional
privacy.
In addition to Alliance
members and guests,
there was a visitor from

he regularly goes to

Improvise your

schedule

Improv is not for the faint of heart unless you are a watcher
and not a watchede."
Good comedians thrive on it, honing their skills while
developing bits from as little as one word. This weekend, local
improve troupes will be joined by acts from Atlanta, Austin, Boston,
Chicago and Miami for the fourth annual improve festival at
Sarasota's Florida Studio Theatre.
Performances will be in the theater's Goldstein Cabaret Friday
and in the cabaret as well as the Keating Mainstage area on
Saturday. Shows will begin on the hour from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Friday and from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday.
If all you want to do is watch Jester Theater from Orlando,
buy a $10 ticket for that groups' performance at 8 p.m. Saturday.
To see every group, buy a $49 ticket for the weekend and
see Stacked from Chicago at 7 p.m. in the cabaret while
Dad's Garage returns for a second performance at the same
time in the Keating.
Should you want to try improve yourself, sign up for one of the
Saturday workshops beginning at 11 a.m. The instructors will be
from some of the groups performing Friday and Saturday and
you might learn how much fun you can have while making a
total fool of yourself as a"watchee."
Improv performances and additional classes are offered
throughout the summer and beyond. For tickets or information,
call FST at 941-366-9000.
This could be your chance to become a star or at least a
watchede."

O ROAD TRIP


Snooty hosts Wildlife Awareness Festival


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
This week we are road tripping to Bradenton
for a really big birthday bash with a really
big birthday "boy" named Snooty.
Snooty, the oldest manatee in captivity,
celebrates his 64th birthday Saturday at the
South Florida Museum and online all over
the globe. Snooty has moved twice and today
resides in his best quarters to date, the roomy
Parker manatee Aquarium that was custom built
for Snooty and any guests that drop in. Human
guests have a semi-circular area where they can
sit or stand to watch Snooty perform or simply
swim around his home. Performances generally
feature lots of lettuce eating by the show's star
who swims right over to the handler as soon as
he or she shows up. Snooty, a vegan, also enjoys
cabbage, broccoli, carrots and fruit. Snooty's
home is a 60,000-gallon pool. Snooty's swimming
guests usually are rehabbed manatees that will
soon be released back into the wild. More than 20
such manatees have been part of the aquarium's
rehabilitation program.
That Snooty has been a festival junky since
arriving at the museum during the 1949 De Soto
Heritage Celebration is part of the reason that for
this year's birthday party theme, Snooty will host
free Wildlife Awareness Festival from 10 a.m. to 2
p.m. in the museum's Spanish Plaza.
Admission to the festival is free and, in honor
of Snooty, museum admission is half price all

com/southflmuseum between 11:55 a.m. and
12:10 p.m. to see Snooty and join in the "Happy
Birthday" sing at noon. While Snooty munches
on his lettuce cake, human guests will enjoy free
drinks, snacks, games and art activities such as
a Snooty birthday card design competition. There
will be special aquarium exhibits and presenta-
tions about Florida's endangered wildlife as well
as a special appearance by Snooty.
Also part of the museum complex is the Bish-
op Planetarium and, within the main museum,

Sightseeing and sunset cruises


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Sarasota is a lovely waterfront town and
as is the case with any waterfront town,
it is best observed from the water. The
Marina Jack II, a 96-foot long, 20-foot wide luxury
liner, offers two stories of climate-controlled seat-
ing on its local cruises.
'We have a sightseeing lunch cruise and a
sunset dinner cruise,' said Tom DeLong, Marina
Jack Vice President/General Manager. "Lunch is
narrated and goes up around the Ringling Bridge,
and around Bird Key and Lido Key The dinner
cruise also goes out to Big Pass for the sunset"'
The lunch cruises take about an hour and a
half and the dinner cruise lasts for two hours. In
spite of the casual dress code, the menu items
are gourmet. The lunch buffet features Chicken
Marsala and for dinner, you will find entrees such
as prime rib and salmon.
DeLong said that though tourists love the
cruises and getting to see scenery they may not
be used to, the Marina Jack II also does a great
local business, especially on the weekends.
'We get a lot of groups for lunch and last
weekend, we had a graduation party and a wedding
ceremony' he said.'We have about eight weddings

formed on the boat. The captain is a notary public
and can and performs the wedding ceremonies.
The boat was custom-built for Marina Jack in
2006, and employs all the latest navigational and
safety features.
"We have an integrated weather and depth-
finder, which also shows wind speed and direc-
tion," DeLong said. "It's satellite-linked and it tells
the captain in real time what's going on with the
weather."
Not that you're ever that far from the marina,
but it is still nice to know that the captain will
encounter no surprises when you're away from
the dock. This is a very sturdy boat, weighing 83
gross tons, with two propulsion engines and two
generators.
The boat has a capacity of 149 passengers

plus the crew, and the exterior walls both up and
downstairs are basically just glass-meaning that
other than in the restrooms, there is not a place
on the boat that does not have a view for those
passengers. But even though the boat holds a lot
of people, you don't want to take a chance space
will be available when you want to take a cruise.
"We recommend call in advance reserva-
tions," DeLong said. "We like to know before
we leave about how many people we are going
to have." He said it's important they know how
much food they will need for the buffet. And
just because the boat is luxurious, it doesn't
mean you have to dress up for the cruise. De-
Long said that passengers can dress comfortably
and casually.
The cruises run seven days a week noon to

Art center illuminated


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
A rt Center Sarasota's building has a brighter
future literally with new lighting in its
galleries.
Built in 1949 for what was then called the Sara-
sota Art Association, in the manner of Sarasota
School of Architecture buildings, the structure
was expanded in the '60s. In the ensuing years,
the building served multiple purposes for artists,
even serving as a temporary home for the West
Coast Black Theatre Troupe. Lighting was a
continual problem, one that was finally addressed
with a $25,000 donation from Howard and Betty
Isermann for new gallery lighting, using energy
efficient bulbs and fixtures.
In addition to installing new lighting, energy


efficiency was considered. A donation from long-
time supporter Bubsy Becker provided new attic
insulation above the main gallery and additional
LED bulbs and extenders.
Gallery walls were renovated with neutral
carpeting that can stand up to changing exhibits.
That was funded by Elaine and David Charney.
Also undergoing a recent renovation and ex-
pansion was the Sam & Sally Shapiro Sculpture
Garden, thanks to an additional grant from the
couple.
Art Center Sarasota is at 707 N. Tamiami
Trail, immediately south of the city's municipal
auditorium.The galleries are open from 10 a.m. to
4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
For information on classes and exhibitions, visit
www.artsarasota.org or call 941-365-2032.

A jungle in the city


BY CATHY PALMER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Nestled in the heart of Orlando's northeast-
ern urban sprawl is a 50-acre jungle of
green, often riotous with color, a virtual
oasis of nature trails bordering Lake Rowena with
a historical twist: Leu Gardens. It also houses the
historical Leu House Museum, the only house
museum in Orlando that is open to the public.
Only a mile or so from busy Interstate 4, the
gardens feature thousands of varieties of plants,
including one of the largest collections of camel-
lias in the Eastern United States, according to
Museum Director Robert Bowden.
The semi-tropical gardens include 14 different
collections including a tropical stream garden,
a citrus grove, an herb garden, butterfly garden,
vegetable garden, a rose garden, a color garden,
the'dinosaur garden' so named because many of
its plants date to prehistoric times, a large floral
clock, the popular white garden where countless
weddings are held, and even an arid garden fea-
turing desert plants. But, according to Bowden,
the gardens are known primarily for their stunning
array of camellias.
While the gardens appear to be the primary
draw for the park, it is also a historical museum


site, Bowden says, adding that the historical Leu
home is on the National Register of Historical
Places. Built in 1858 by David W. Mizell and his
wife Angeline, the house was the center of the
Mizell's cotton, corn and sugar cane plantation.
Ironically, Mizell was the only sheriff of Orange
County who was killed in the line of duty. He was
ambushed and slain in 1870 and is buried in a
small cemetery on the grounds.
Sold in 1902, to a NewYorker, Duncan Pell,
the property was converted to the more lucrative
citrus industry. The Pell period gave the home a
reputation because Mr. Pell used his relocation to
Florida to get a divorce from his wife to marry a
young silent screen starlet named Helen Gardner.
The former owner's son John Mizell was hired by
the scandalous couple to add wings to the house
to make weekend guests more comfortable.
The house was like Topsy and grew and grew,
but in 1906, it reclaimed its charm and nostalgia,
according to Bowden. The Woodward family from
Birmingham, Ala., bought the house as a winter
retreat and named it'LaBelle' after the family's
original business.
Lastly, the Leus bought the house in the
1930s, furnished it accordingly and continually
added to the growing collection of plants which

make up the core of the present gardens. The
house is furnished in the various styles of the
different owners with areas dedicated to each.
Guided tours of the home/museum are offered
daily from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on the half hour.
The childless Leus left the house and sur-
rounding property to the city of Orlando in 1961
when it became part of the city's cultural
heritage, Bowden says. "It's a wonderful living
part of Orlando's cultural fabric," he adds. "We
are extremely fortunate that Mr. Leu left this to
the city."
While the gardens and house are beautiful and
attract tourists, Bowden says, they are always "an
active facility." Countless weddings are held in the
Gardens and the Welcome House at the entrance
has large meeting facilities that are constantly
booked, he added. "This is not a static facility;" he
says, "we have landscaping classes, horticultural
classes, cooking classes, classes for children and

offer a display area for fine arts." A recent visit
showed a gallery of water color paintings by local
artists featured in the Welcome House.
Agricultural programs span a broad spectrum,
the director says, We show people not only how
to grow their own vegetables, but how to cook
and preserve them as well,' he said, adding that
the gardens features its own outdoor kitchen
where these classes are held.
Bowden says the'living museum and historical
home' takes 19 full-time staff to maintain and has
a $2.5 million annual budget. "We have six full-
time gardeners, administrative staff and historical
preservation specialists," he said.
Leu Gardens is located at 1920 N. Forest Ave.,
Orlando.

Cabaret season kicks off


with raucous summer fun


El i July 18-24, 2012


PROVIDED BY THE VENICE THEATRE

Sarasota's infamous guerrilla theater troupe
has a new home on Venice Theatre's
Pinkerton Stage. "Random Acts Cabaret"
is an eclectic evening of edgy songs, monologues
and scenes.
Venice Theatre Producing Director Allan Kollar
and Guest Director Kelly Woodland are bringing
back this vibrant part of Sarasota's contemporary
theater scene Thursdays through Saturdays
through Aug. 25. All shows are at 8 p.m.
"'Random Acts' is not for the faint of heart,"
said Woodland. "The show contains adult subject
matter and language and may contain partial
nudity. Our original group was a bunch of actors
who were frustrated at the lack of opportunities
to perform in edgier shows"' ("Random Acts" was
formed in 1994, a year before Venice Theatre's
Stage II Series had been established.)
'We started by doing script readings at Main
Book Store and then moved to The Broadway
Bar in Sarasota when we were ready to stage
full productions. Their regular customers weren't
sure they wanted to pay a cover charge to watch
plays, but they loved what they saw and kept
coming back."
Those productions included "Road to Nirvana"
by Arthur Kopit; Eric Bogosian's monologue
collection, "Sex, Drugs, Rock & Roll,"' and the
comedy "Dearly Departed'"The new incarnation
of the group is adding music to the mix, including
naughty songs like "Arthur in The Afternoon,' by
Kander and Ebb, and "Sodomy," from "Hair."
Besides Woodland and Kollar at the helm, the


"Random Acts Cabaret" cast members
include Jessica Szempruch, Rik Robertson
and Dorian Boyd.
new edition of "Random Acts" features Music
Director Peter Madpak and actors/singers Steve
O'Dea, Ross Boehringer, Kristofer Geddie,
Jenny Martin, Gianna Campo, Kim Kollar, Nancy
Denton, Jessica Szempruch, Rik Robertson and
Dorian Boyd.
Woodland compliments her cast with these
words: "I love those first few rehearsals with a
new cast when the magic starts swirling around
and you realize how ridiculously fortunate you are
to make a living this way."
"Random Acts Cabaret" is the first in a series
of four off-beat musicals performed in the
90-seat, black-box Pinkerton Theatre.
Tickets are $25 with a discounted student

Casting call set for 'Rocky Horr


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
t is time for yet another generation of per-
formers for the "Rocky Horror Show'." Venice
Theatre issued a casting call at 7:30 p.m.
Sunday-Monday.
Every part is open even that of Frank-N-
Furter, the mad scientist who gives new meaning
to dressing in drag. The show's choreographer
Brad Wages took on the demanding role for the
theater's past two productions, but is stepping
aside this time around, leaving big shoes to fill.
This role needs to be played by someone who
can sing and dance and do it all while wearing
outlandish costumes and high heels.
At the opposite end of the scale is the show's
hero, the somewhat mousy and even boring
Brad Majors (20-40s). He needs to have a
strong singing voice, good acting ability and
some dancing ability. His fiance is Janet Weiss


(20-40s), a classic beauty although a small-
town girl who gets "caught up in the insanity of
Dr. Frank-N-Furter'"
Janet Weiss (Female 20-40s) The Heroine.
Just a small-town girl caught up in the insanity of
Dr. Frank-N-Furter. Fiancee to Brad Majors. Strong
singer/actor with some dancing ability. Consider that
even audience members need to be able to do the
time warp for "Rocky Horror Show."
When the clean-cut Brad and Janet have car
trouble on a dark and stormy night, they head
toward the light down the road at the place
where the crazy doctor is conducting his most
unusual experiments. The show is part rock
musical that spoofs science fiction films with a
side story of seduction and sexual confusion.
Allan Kollar will direct the show which will
run Oct. 12 through Nov. 3, with some midnight
performances in the Yvonne T Pinkerton Theatre.
Most of the actors needed are in the 20-40 age

Merchants celebrate


Christmas in July


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Venice merchants celebrate Christmas in
July this weekend.
Back in the Bronze Age, merchants
got a jump on the winter holidays by putting out
Christmas merchandise for Thanksgiving week-
end promotions.
Little by little the pre-holiday promotions
continued to inch forward. It was only a matter
of time until Santa Claus would fly into Venice
in July.
"We are the only community in this part
of Florida (to my knowledge) to have such a
large event in July,"Venice shop owner Sandy
McGowan said.
McGowan and her fellow MainStreet mer-
chants will hold their third annual Christmas in
July event Friday-Saturday on the avenues of


downtown Venice. They will dress store windows,
feature holiday specials and collect entry forms
for several large gift baskets filled with assorted
merchandise from member stores. The baskets
will be displayed in shop windows until the draw-
ing. Santa Claus will greet children of all ages as
they roam the avenues in search of Christmas
cheer and bargains.
On Saturday, a trolley will offer free rides on
the three avenues (W. Miami, W.Venice and
W. Tampa) from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Fresh Christmas trees may be in short supplies
but there will be plenty of plants and other greens
(decorative and edible) at the downtown farmers
market on W.Tampa Avenue, from 8 a.m. to noon
Saturday when the street is closed between Nas-
sau and Nokomis.
For more information, call McKowan at
941-484-9911 or Mindy Pieper at 941-484-6722.

Thursday in the city: Downtown Punta Gorda is the place to be for art, music and more


BY BREE DILLOW
GALLERY WALK
Downtown is the place to be on the third
Thursday of every month this summer
with events, music, markets and more
happening every week.
Punta Gorda locals and visitors alike can
explore Punta Gorda's vibrant neighborhood
offerings from art and culture to fresh produce
and live music all for free.
"Downtown Punta Gorda has so much to offer
throughout the summer months and it is so im-
portant to make it easy for people to experience
our great city," said Jerry Presseller, president of
the Downtown Merchants Association.
"It's exciting to see so many downtown
organizations and businesses come together
and to know that if you come down on a
Thursday, you're sure to have a truly unique
experience."
Third Thursday, in Punta Gorda's historic
downtown neighborhood, is the city's first and
largest Gallery Walk. After several years of suc-
cess, Third Thursday has become a fixture for
art-loving residents and venturing creative.
Each month, leading art galleries open their
doors to introduce their new exhibitions and art-
ists to the eager public.
The family-friendly experience is further en-
hanced by dozens of public art installations that
can be found while strolling between galleries
and businesses.
Enjoy an eclectic art walk through one of
Punta Gorda's most well-known areas. The Third


Thursday Gallery Walk gives attendees a unique
look into the businesses and galleries surround-
ing the bustling downtown district.
Locals and visitors alike are encouraged to
venture out to experience the walk and broaden
their knowledge of Punta Gorda's local artists,
charming galleries, unique eateries and boutique
shops.
While the summer temperatures are undeni-
ably smoldering, the cool evening breeze sets
the tone for the Gallery Walk and record-breaking
temperatures become a distant memory.
Get outside, play, eat, party and indulge this
summer at the hundreds of local downtown
businesses. Soak in the charm of the city with
food and beverages samples, breathtaking views
of summer sunsets and a variety of live music
and entertainment.
The Third Thursday Gallery Walk takes place
from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. in downtown Punta Gorda's
historic neighborhood.
Below is a small sampling of some of the
venues and offerings you won't want to miss.
IN YOUR FACE CUPCAKES
(Coffee, Beer & Wine Bar)
Stop in and listen to the musical stylings
of Douglas Coventry He'll be preforming
from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. in the courtyard across

Sample a variety of craft beers, tantalizing
wines, homemade sangria and over 60 unique
flavors of cupcakes too.
CREATIONS GALLERY
Creations Gallery will be celebrating the begin-


ning of their third year in the downtown location
this month.
During Gallery Walk, many of their artists can
be found painting, pouring, or partying, so please
plan to join them.
The artwork is superlative, the libations are
delectable and the demonstrations are unbeat-
able. Hope to see you here.
CARRIES AND TIKIS BOUTIQUE
Come in and see what's new at Carries and
Tikis Boutique. So exciting for downtown Punta


Gorda. Never yet to be seen in any boutique.

The Diva returns to the stage


PROVIDED BY VISANI
The Florida debut performance of "The
Marcy Downey Show, Here's To The Divas
And Dames" is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
Tuesday at Visani.
You may remember Downey as Diva and the
Italian Guy with her late husband, Buddy Sebas-
tian. She has since produced her own solo act and
performed it for audiences in Western NewYork
where she recently introduced the new show to bus
tour groups and locals, receiving rave reviews and
standing ovations for her singing and humor.
According to Downey, the title, "Here's To The
Divas And Dames" refers to "the most popular
singing divas of our time, and the dames that
made you smile and laugh."
Those celebrated ladies include Barbra

PICCADILLY CIRCUS
Here comes the circus. to the Charlotte
Event & Conference Center at 4:30 p.m.
and 7:30 p.m. Monday.
Piccadilly Circus and has everything you would
expect to see at a circus. Piccadilly Circus
celebrates 25 years entertaining families
throughout North America and they have pulled
out all the stops.
There will be the Elephant Extravaganza, an
elephant that stands on one foot; Motorcycle
Madness has motorcycle daredevils somer-


Streisand, Billie Holiday, Whitney Houston, Donna
Summer, Soul Sisters of the '60s, Patsy Cline,
and others, as well as comedian Lily Tomlin's
Ernestine the telephone operator' and Downey's
own original character, Marge the Red Hat Lady.
Downey says she has been in show business
virtually all her life. "I first appeared on a stage at
the age of 4 for a tap dance recital number. As
we stood there on stage waiting for the curtain
to open, some of the little girls started to cry
and call for their mommies. I could not for the life
of me understand what was wrong with them. I
couldn't wait for that curtain to open and do my
thing. I guess that pretty much set the tone for my
love of performing."
After studying music and theater in college,
Downey began singing professionally with bands,
and soon met Sebastian who was the leader of a



ing to town

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, a hilariously wild pack
of sheep dogs; My Little Pony On Parade, an
outstanding display of the colors of the rainbow,
in pony vision; the White Tiger Spectacular; crazy
comedy with circus clowns, a 1923 Model T with
a mind of its own; daring acrobats; cirque artists
and much more. The show is one and a half
hours of excitement and fun.
Free children's tickets have been distributed
throughout the county.

six-piece band looking for a girl singer. That was
at the end of 1976 and the two worked together
for most of the years that followed.
Downey has also appeared on television, radio
and in a movie with Fabian where she played the
part of his backup singer.
"I'm a performer, that's what I do and who
I am. After Buddy's illnesses began, we both
always expected that if this time came, I would
continue on.Yes, it's difficult in many ways, but
more importantly, singing is healing for me." And
apparently for her audiences as well.
Tickets for Downey's new show are $10. For

O IN THE KITCHEN

Chicano's Chef Isel Lopez


BY DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
From the day Isel Lopez arrived in Venice
from his home country of Mexico 11 years
ago, he has been working in restaurants.
For 10 years, he worked in someone else's
kitchen until he and his wife opened a restau-
rant last year. Now he has a kitchen of his own.
"To have a restaurant has always been my
dream," he said. "I love this country Thank you,
America."
Isel and his wife Dana own and operate
Chicano's Authentic Mexican Food in S. Venice.
Dana's family owns two other Venice restaurants,
Bada Bing and Caf6 Bagel, so she also has put in
quite a bit of time in the kitchen. When the couple
decided to go into business for themselves, the type
of business was never in question.
'We both love to cook and have such a passion
for food," Dana said. "This was just the right fit."
The next step was to find a location for their
new restaurant. On a drive down the S. Tamiami
Trail in Venice, they found just what they wanted.
'We were just driving by and looking and we
saw this spot," Dana said. "We loved the building
and the stone floors."
Though both their families thought they were
crazy for starting a restaurant in the middle of a
recession, they pressed ahead with their plans.
As soon as they took over the restaurant space,
which was quite a bit bigger than they had been
looking for, they began transforming it into what
they now have a brightly colored, friendly
Mexican eatery
"Right now we have about 80 seats," Dana
said, "and we plan on expanding even more."
The plans include expanding the bar area,
capitalizing on their newly acquired liquor license.
They already have a daily happy hour from 2 p.m. to
5 p.m., in which all drinks were priced two for one.
The true star of the show, though, is the
authentic Mexican food, and many of the recipes

"Our fajitas are especially good people love

and people go crazy for our chimichangas. They like
the way they come out sizzling and full of flavor"

For Isel, he knows that he found his profes-
sional calling a long time ago and he's thankful for
it every day.
"I just really like to cook," he said. "I don't even
care so much for the money I just love when
people compliment my food and tell me how
much they liked it."

Visit the wild side


BY SHIRLEY GEORGE
SUN CORRESPONDENT
If you're looking for an fun outing with the kids,
Octagon Wildlife Sanctuary is the perfect ven-
ue. Take your time walking around and meet
over 120 exotic animals. Bring a picnic lunch and
enjoy the multiple areas to eat, relax and bond
with the animals. Don't forget your camera.
Octagon director, Lauri Caron, has always
loved animals. Growing up in Illinois, she hoped
to operate a kennel some day. "I never, in a mil-
lion years, dreamed I would be caring for exotic
animals," she said. "But I love it. I'm pleased that
kids and adults can learn what we are doing at
Octagon, and see our magnificent animals in a
serene environment. We provide a safe haven
for the animals, and give them the best care
possible. Some of them are way over and beyond
their life expectancy in captivity."
Octagon is not a zoo; it is a nonprofit sanctuary
for abused, unwanted or injured animals that was
started more than 30 years ago. It is not affiliated
with any other facility. None of the animals have
been taken out of the wild.The animals are kept in
shaded enclosures that are well within the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and
United States Department of Agriculture regulations.
Octagon does not buy, breed or sell animals.
The animals are cared for much like assisted-
living and rehabilitation facilities for humans. If the
animals were not rescued, most of them would
end up euthanized.There are tigers, lions, bears,
leopards, cougars, primates, macaws, servals, al-
ligators, birds, macaws, wolves, and deer. Burros
roam around a pond among many ducks, geese
and turtles.
"Each animal has its own uniqueness and
intelligence," Caron explained. "There are daily
enrichment programs, and careful consider-
ation is given before allowing them to play with
anything." If an object is swallowed, it may lodge

in their intestines which may result in possible
surgery. Bears and tigers love water, so they have
a pool. Bears receive various sizes of objects to
play with. Lions, leopards, tigers, cougars and
others get palm fronds, balls and bowling pins.
Primates are given toys that contain treats, and a
television set is provided for their enjoyment.
Octagon does not receive any federal funding. All
money comes from grants, donations, fundraisers,
and admission fees.The maintenance requires a
monthly budget of about $9,000. Sweetbay donates
produce every day, area Target stores donate clean-
ing supplies, and Harry Chapin Food Bank donates
non-human consumable meat.
Thirty-five volunteers keep the sanctuary
operating with their individual jobs and skills. "All
the volunteers are blessings; they put their hearts
and souls into caring for the animals," Caron said.
"The facility couldn't operate without them."


Spike, a male baboon, plays with one of his
favorite toys.


Sandy O'Grady, owner of Suncoast One
Title, Inc. in Punta Gorda, volunteers three days
a week. She refers to Octagon as "the wildest
old-age home in Florida." She added, "I just love
these animals. All money and labor go to the wel-
fare of the animals. And nothing is ever wasted.
If a structure needs to be taken down, Lauri will
save the nails."
Veterinarians Dr. Kurt Winters and Dr. Scott
Wouk donate their services caring for the medical
needs of the animals.
"We've had a few Alzheimer's patients visit
the facility numerous times," Caron said. "Sadly,
sometimes they won't remember family names,
but they always remember the animals."
Caron has appeared with Jack Hanna, Director
Emeritus of the Columbus Zoo and his show,
"Into the Wild." Octagon was awarded the "2011
Nonprofit Business of the Year" from the Punta
Gorda Chamber of Commerce. Caron lives on the
property in a trailer, but spends much time taking
care of her elderly mother in Port Charlotte.
Octagon is located at 41660 Horseshoe Road
in Punta Gorda. Take 1-75 to exit 143. Drive east
for three miles to S.R. 31. Turn north (left), go
about five miles, turn left on Horseshoe Road, the

please do not bring your house pets with you.
The sanctuary is open year round from 11 a.m.
to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Admission
fees are $10 for adults, and $5 for 55 plus and
ages 8 to 17. Kids under 7 are free with a paying

Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe opens summer season


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
For fans of '70s music, the Westcoast
Black Theatre Troupe offers "Songbirds of
the '70s,' opening tonight at the troupe's
theater on 10th Way in Sarasota.
Running through July 29, "Songbirds of the
70s" is the first of two summer shows. The sec-
ond will be "Fabulous Five." It will run from
Aug. 22 through Sept. 2.
Both shows were written and adapted by
the troupe's artistic director Nate Jacobs who
recently returned from Germany where he and
several troupe members presented a perfor-


mance of "Soul Crooners" in Detmold at the
60th birthday celebration and 35th business
anniversary part of HorsatThurau, a WBTT patron
and part-time resident of Sarasota. They flew to
Germany on June 14 and returned on June 19 as
guests ofThurau.
"It's going to be another highly energetic,
romantic and nostalgic summer for us," Jacobs
said in a recent release. "WBTT presents a
variety of different productions during our main
season that includes straight dramas, as well
as musical revues and plays. In the summer
we like to just kick back and have fun with the
music of gone-by eras, music that many grew


up with but that also has stood the test of time so
it's familiar. Continuing that tradition, this summer's
shows will present wonderful songs that will either
have you dancing in your seat, holding hands or
singing along"
Songbirds of the'70s features Nisi Pierre,
Jnana Cooper, Tsadok Porter, Naarai Jacobs and
Ebony Lavender.
They will sing songs made famous by the
likes of Dionne Warwick, Gladys Knight, Barbara
Streisand, Karen Carpenter, Aretha Franklin, Tina
Turner, and others, The August show will feature
Sheldon Roden, Michael Mendez, Leon Pitts II,
Charles Manning and Chris Eisenberg who will


sing '60s tunes made famous by performers
such as Fats Domino, James Brown, Otis
Redding, Ray Charles. Jackie Wilson and
Ray Cook.
Jacobs said the girls and the guys are "getting
a little competitive as to whose show will be the
best."
Performances for both shows are Tuesday
through Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at
2 p.m. Tickets are $29.50 and may be purchased
online at www.wbttsrq.org or by calling
941-366-1505.
The theater is located at
1646 10th Way, Sarasota.

Peter's Restaurant


BY DELORES SAVAS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Frank Oberheim co-owner of Peter's Restau-
rant and Catering in Port Charlotte said
the best way to describe his restaurant is a
place where "everyone knows your name" just like
the famous bar on the television show "Cheers"
in the '90s.
Oberheim and his dad Skip, who is co-owner
and along with other family members, have been
operating Peter's for the past 10 years.
"I always wanted to get into the restaurant
business, people said I was a natural. When I
heard the restaurant was for sale, I went there
every day and sat and drank coffee and just stud-
ied the business. I knew I could do better, and we
have" Frank said.
"Many people said I would not last three
months but it has been 10 years," Frank said.
What does he own his success to? He said, "I


can't praise my employees enough. They are
polite to the customers and work as a team. I
have not hired a new waitress for five years;
the rest of the staff has been with me for 10
years."
"I have also had the same cooks, all brothers
for the past 10 years. They are the most depend-
able workers that an owner could ask for. They
all work as a team and help each other out when
needed."
Another reason for the success of Peter's
according to Frank is that, 'The staff knows just
about all the regulars by name and we listen to
our customers. Many times they are greeted as
they enter the restaurant. Many are waiting at
7 a.m. for us to open. If they request a certain
item be put on the menu we listen and see if it is
possible."
Skip, who is 80 years old, said, "I enjoy work-
ing with the public. I did it all my life. I enjoy get-


ting up at five in the morning and getting to the
store early That is what keeps me going."
Frank said, "We have not raised our prices
for the past three years. We keep the prices
as low as possible and still manage to make a
profit. We keep our prices affordable to help out
the locals."
The menu at Peter's is varied from a large
breakfast menu starting with omelets to pancakes
and egg dishes. Nightly specials include, Greek
specialties, to a spicy chicken dish, Italian fare,
barbecues and many other dishes to choose
from. Daily specials are always featured.
"We make all our dishes from scratch," Frank
said, "and our portions are large."
Peter's also offers catering service for
weddings, funerals, outdoor barbecue and
other events. They offer custom orders to fit the
customer's needs. Another plus is the start of a
rewards program this month for customers.

Kingsway Country Club: An accessible oasis


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

One of the most popular destinations in our
area for cyclists is the Legacy Trail.
Connecting communities in Sarasota,
Osprey, Nokomis, Venice and South Venice, the
Legacy Trail is a wide, smoothly paved path for
walkers, roller bladers and bicyclists. At its north-
ernmost entrance is Palmer Ranch; Shamrock
Park is at the southern entrance.
Because it is a trail that is actually off the road,
it has become especially popular with bicyclists,
who are used to having to fight with local traffic -
and cranky drivers for the right of way.
'We rent bikes and deliver them all the time to
the Legacy Trail," said Renee Miller of Siesta Key
Bike & Kayak. "We also offer bike racks to rent, if


you want to ta,-e Ile-m iIll-re vy:".irsell"
She said the Legacy Trail is a greal place I.:.
ride, especially for beginners.
Chris Prokosch, president of the Sarasota
Manatee Bicycle Club, agreed.
"The Legacy Trail is wonderful for newer rid-
ers people who aren't used to riding on city
streets,' she said. "It's a great way to get started."
Prokosch said that when her daughter first
began riding a bike, the trail is where she took
her to get some practice before she let her on
the road.
On a recent afternoon, Donna Hopkins
and Karen Scanzoni were taking a break
at the Legacy Trail General Store in Nokomis,
having ridden from Shamrock Park to Palmer
Ranch and headed back to their starting point

Illey were 1i1 i,:,Wi l 1 : lr a lairiily ret:uniol.: anll d w-ere
enjoying a small "girls' vacation" at the same
time.
"I had ridden it (the Legacy Trail)
before," Scanzoni said. "My husband and I did it
together."
Hopkins said she was very impressed by what
she had seen along the trail.
"This is the most beautiful place I've been in
Florida,' she said. "We started at 10 a.m. and
ended (the first leg of the ride) at noon and we
rode at a leisurely pace."
The women appreciated the fact that there were
rest stops along the way and shady places to sit
and rest. Plus, the course was not a difficult ride,
even on the new overpass over U.S. 41 Bypass.

steep grade like it looks like it would be."
Apparently, tourists are not the only people
getting bicycles specifically to use on the Legacy
Trail.
Tony McEachern, of Village Bikes, said he gets
plenty of requests for trail-friendly transportation.
"A lot people are doing the Legacy Trail,' he
said. "I would say that one out of every four bikes I
sell is to use on that trail."
If you want to ride the Legacy trail yourself,
it's easily accessible there are trailheads and
parking areas all along the route.
Maps and trail information can be found on
the Friends of the Legacy Trail website,
www.LegacyTrailFriends.org.

Multiple system atrophy often REX MORGAN By Woody Wilson and Graham Nolan
f YOU C GOIRE NG TO LOS ANf LES? I C
mistaken for Parkinson's disease I .o-,um KNOW PEPE 7 |:A


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
My husband passed
away in February of this
year. He just had his 67th
birthday in December. He
was diagnosed as having
multiple system atrophy
about two years ago. We
had never heard of MSA.
Information we got from
the Internet provided
all of its symptoms and
a predicted longevity
of seven to 10 years. He
took Sinemet, medicine
for Parkinson's disease. It
and other medicines did
not help. He went from
a healthy man to a cane,
then to a walker and then
to a wheelchair and finally
to a hospital bed.
How prominent is this
disease? Where does it
originate? It's devastating.
- G.M.
ANSWER: MSA, mul-
tiple system atrophy, is a
degeneration of certain
brain centers from causes
yet unknown. The more
common variety of MSA
mimics in many ways
Parkinson's disease.
Patients have the muscu-
lar rigidity and stiffness
of Parkinson's disease.
They're bent forward
at the waist. Speech
becomes a mumble. They
walk in a shuffle and are
inclined to fall. Standing
up brings on dizziness
and fainting due to a drop
in blood pressure with a
change of position.
The average age of onset
is 54, and longevity is pre-
dicted to be seven to 10
years. I can't explain why
your husband had such
a rapid course. Perhaps it
was due to your husband's
older age when he came
down with it. MSA affects
about three people in a
population of 100,000.
The Parkinson's disease
medicine Sinemet is often
tried, but no medicine has
had resounding success in
controlling symptoms and
extending life.
You're right. MSA is a
devastating illness for the
patient and for the family.
You and your family have
my sincerest sympathy.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I
have suffered from major
depression for most of
my adult life. I have tried
nearly every antidepres-
sant and mood-stabilizer
in various doses, but noth-
ing has helped for more
than several months.
I recently asked my
psychiatrist if I could
explore the option of
electroconvulsive therapy,
but he dismissed it out of
hand as being something I
could not afford and being
a treatment that lasts for
only two weeks.
Is this true? I would


Dr. Donohue
Readers may
write Dr
Donohueat -
PO. Box
536475,
Orlando,
FL 32853-6475
think the procedure would
have better success rates
and longer-lasting results.
What are your thoughts?
- B.B.
ANSWER: The doc-
tor hasn't come up with
anything that has worked
for you. I don't understand
his stance. Unless you
have a physical illness that
prohibits electroconvulsive
(also called electroshock)
therapy, you appear to be
an ideal patient for such
treatment. You have had
no success with medicines
or talk therapy. ECT gives
good results that last much
longer than you were told.
The two names for
ECT (EST) ought to be
changed; they evoke fear.
In the modern form of this
treatment, no observable
convulsion takes place,
and the process is done
quickly.
The doctor gives a treat-
ment three times a week
for two to four weeks,
often as an outpatient.
Improvement frequently
is seen after two or three
treatments, more rap-
idly than with any other
therapy. After mood has
stabilized, maintenance
therapy is given at inter-
vals of one to eight weeks
after the initial therapy to
prevent relapses, and then
less frequently. Explore
this treatment with a doc-
tor who has experience in
ECT.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
My husband and I are in
our mid-80s. We have a
daughter in her mid-50s,
and she lives with us. She
has a serious problem. She
drinks 70-proof brandy,
and easily can drink a pint
in one night. What is she
doing to her body and
brain? She is a wonderful
daughter. L.K.
ANSWER: The daily
limit for distilled bever-
ages and brandy is a
distilled beverage is
1.5 ounces of 80-proof
liquor a day. Her 70-proof
brandy is close to 80. She
far exceeds the limit.
She places herself at
high risk for liver cir-
rhosis. Her brain suffers
if she is not taking in the
suggested daily intake of
vitamins. She needs the
help of a professional.
Start with the family doc-
tor, or suggest Alcoholics
Anonymous to her.

Long live olives?


LJ MUTTS By Patrick McDonnell
) WHAT MOVIE
YBRID ARE YOU GOING
TO B6E N 93?


Dear Heloise: I've
enjoyed your column for
years, and I trust your
expertise.
We buy olives at the
olive bars of high-end
grocery stores and use
the takeout containers to
bring them home.
When should they be
tossed out? My husband
insists that since they are
cured and brined, they
are good for weeks. I've
noticed that they seem to
change color after seven
days, at which time I
refuse to eat them. Since
they're expensive, I'd
appreciate your guidance.
Thanks! D.J.E, via email
Happy to help, and I
buy olives from the olive
bar, too, as I'm an olive
lover! The short answer is
that as long as you keep
them in the liquid they
came in (typically a brine
or water-based solution),
they are safe to eat, stored
in the refrigerator, for a
month or two if they
last that long!
If you buy olives from
an olive bar, be sure that
the turnover of new olives
is often. Olive colors will
vary, but try to purchase
firm olives with enough
brine to keep them cov-
ered and moist. Heloise

Storing mustard
Dear Readers: Mustard
is a must to have on hand,
and there are so many
tasty ones! But where
do you store it in the
refrigerator or the pantry?
Manufacturers recom-
mend that mustard goes


Hints from Heloise

into the refrigerator after
opening for the best fla-
vor. However, since there
are no ingredients in
mustard that can "go bad"
without refrigeration, the
counter or pantry is just
fine! Heloise

Italian-dressing
hints
Dear Heloise: I love to
experiment in the kitch-
en, and one of the staples
I always keep on hand is
Italian-style salad dress-
ing. Here are some of the
ways I use it in everyday
cooking:
I marinate chicken in
the dressing and then grill
it on the outdoor grill or
bake it in the oven.
I take cooked pasta,
some chopped tomatoes
and peppers (red, orange
and yellow), and toss it
with a little mayonnaise,
then add enough dressing
to coat. Let chill in the
refrigerator before serving.
Finally, I love baked
potatoes. Instead of all
the fattening butter and
sour cream, I keep a small
dish of dressing to dip the
potato in. Karen W in

Talking to kids about sex is an

ongoing conversation


MALLARD FILLMORE By Bruce Tinsley


OF Mr4c Vy yiritsa-R wa w
6AV5 WOMMANP CWIW$. A


DEAR ABBY: How do
you tell a young girl about
sex, and what's the best
way to go about telling
her? My niece is 12 and
hasn't had her first period
yet. But she has a serious
crush on an older boy,
and kids grow up real fast
in our neighborhood.
You'd be shocked if you
knew how young they are
when they start fooling
around.
This is a difficult
subject to discuss, but I
know that our talk will
have to happen pretty
soon. She is closer to me
than to her mom. When I
was growing up, the word
"sex" wasn't mentioned,
and one of my cousins got
pregnant in her sopho-
more year of high school.
I don't want that same
mistake made again.
Please help.
I heard you have a book
about this. How can I get
one? -ALMOST READY
IN LOUISIANA
DEAR ALMOST READY:
Kids grow up fast all over
these days not just
in your neighborhood.
"The talk" with your niece
should have started long
ago as part of an ongo-
ing discussion because
young people are matur-
ing earlier than they did
years ago, for a variety of
reasons.
Because it hasn't
already started happen-
ing, your niece should
be told that there will be
changes in her body and
that they are normal. She
should also be assured
they are nothing to fear.
You heard correctly that
I publish a booklet about
what teens should know
about sex (and drugs) that
covers a variety of impor-
tant topics. Adults and
parents sometimes find
the subject difficult to
discuss. My booklet was
written to help "break the
ice" and begin the discus-
sion more easily. It can be
ordered by sending your
name and address, plus
check or money order for
$7 (U.S. funds) to Dear
Abby Teen Booklet, P.O.
Box 447, Mount Morris,
IL, 61054-0447. Shipping
and handling are included
in the price. It could be
very helpful to you if you

is change. Staying the same simply isn't an option
for you, though you may feel slightly anxious about
what shape your new life will take.Trust.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You will fall in love
many times, always with the same activity.This
is how you know it's a fine match for you and
something you were surely meant to be doing with
your life.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21).You touch people's lives
in ways you don't really understand. Your spirit,


Dear Abby

review it before starting
the discussion with your
niece so you can prepare
beforehand to answer her
questions or guide the
conversations.
Important topics that
are included are "How old
must a girl be before she
can get pregnant?" "How
old must a boy be before
he can father a child?"
"What time of the month
is a girl 100 percent safe?"
and "Can a girl get preg-
nant the first time she has
sex?" In addition, there is
a section on various sexu-
ally transmitted diseases
and what to do if you
think you may have one.
It is extremely important
that they be treated
right away, because not
doing so can have lifelong
consequences.
Knowledge is power,
and the more information
your niece has, the better
she can be prepared for
making the decisions that
lie ahead of her. But most
of all, your niece needs
to know that becoming
a woman is a cause for
celebration and I hope
you will present that to
her and make it clear.
DEAR ABBY: I have a
lighted doorbell at my
front door. But nine out of
10 people who come here
still knock rather than
use the bell. Sometimes I
don't hear them, so then
they'll start pounding
with a lot of force until
they can get my attention.
They never resort to using
the doorbell. Why are
people so stubborn? AT
HOME IN MELBOURNE,
FLA.
DEAR AT HOME: I'm
not sure it's stubbornness.
They simply might not
think to use it. However,
I may have a solution
for you. Post a sign over
your doorbell that reads:
PLEASE RING BELL!


the way you talk, the excitement you show when
certain things are happening, it's all registering in
the mind of someone special.
CANCER (June 22-July 22).When people think of
you, the word"encouragement"comes to mind.
You'll give a kindly prop to your friends and boost
them in the direction they seem to want to go.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Life is an endless opportu-
nity. So trust your decisions.They're either wrong or
right, but committing to them will feel better than
going in halfheartedly. And there always will be
anotheropportunity.

Opening lead: Jack of

When the points are more or less
evenly divided between declarer's
hand and the table, 23-24 points are
often enough to make nine tricks at
no trump. The more unbalanced the
strength, the more you usually need
to take the same number of tricks.
When one hand gets into the middle
or high twenties, even a combined 30
points might not be enough. Here,
with a combined 27, declarer had to
work hard to fulfill his contract.


The auction is straightforward.
With so much strength concentrated
in the short suits, declarer treated his
hand as balanced, and the notrump
game was reached in short order.
West led a heart, attacking
declarer's weakest point. There were
plenty of tricks available, but a
shortage of dummy entries made it
difficult to develop and cash them.
Declarer found a pretty way around
the impasse.
The first trick was won in the
closed hand perforce, and the ace and
king of spades were cashed to
unblock the suit. Next, a low club
was led and West could not afford to
rise with the king since that would
establish the suit and provide an entry
to the table. When the jack won,
declarer cashed the queen of spades,
discarding the ace of hearts from
hand
A club to the ace and another club
completed the defenders' discomfort.
West won with the king but the
defenders could do no better than
cash three top diamonds before
conceding the rest of the tricks to
dummy's winners.
